Tbe sight of so much  money,' in' $500 bills, was too much  for 'the porter, and grabbing a  $1,000 he scattered the balance on  the floor, in his agitation, and fled,  for Windsor, where he was captured with two 8500 bills In his possession. Tiie money was returned  to Sir William, and in his joy, he  declined to prosecute the porter for  running away with part of his 40  year's gatherings.

Pilgrim Joe's Discovery Arouses  Latent Memories.  DOES MORE THAN IS WANT-ED.  Recollections of Borrowed Money, a  Discarded Man, Cheating In Church,  Lost Thimble and Other Cases���������Inventor Threatened.  By-M. QUAD.  [Copyright,   1910,  by  Associated  Literary  Press.]  IOR the last thirty-five years I  have been experimenting with  various roots nnd barks with a  view of bringin-; out some sure  and certain remedy for loss of memory Iu old and youug people. Tlio  amount of forgetfuluess in ibis world  is something astonishing, and the evil  thereby caused can hardly be computed.  Il gives me the greatest pleasure to  state that my long and untiring efforts  bave at last been crowned with coin  THE LONO  LOST THIMBLE.  plete success, and every drug store In  the land is now supplied with Pilgrim  Joe's Wonderful .Memory ISestorer.  I make no difference between respectable aud disreputable druggists,  but serve both alike, as 1 wish iiiy restorer to reach all classes aud conditions.  Every bottle- holds a full pint, and  the cork Is secured by red wax. Take  no other. More depends on the color  of the wax in patent medicine than  the contents of the bottle.  Every bottle lias a wide mouth, so it  can be. used to take ice cream home in  when the original contents are gone.  Inspected under the pure food and  drug law'aud fouud to contain nothing  to kill a horse.    If you die after tak-  ��������� Ing a  few  doses  your  friends  must  look for parts green in tbe well.  I do not wish to boast too greatly of  this new and valued addition to the  many preparations on sale and will  therefore submit a few testimonials  from the thousands pouring in by  every mail.  J. D. B. of Hartford writes: "I hope  you will meet with no success In the  sale of your memory restorer. My  . wife got me to take a dose, and it was  hardly down 'before [ remembered  borrowing $10 of her five years ago.  and there was nothing to do but pay  it back. You don't get me to take au-  other drop."  John Henry n. of New York city  writes: "I was being sued for breach  of promise, and as the girl had nothing  in writing to bring forward the jury  would certainly bave cleared me had  not the. plaintiff's lawyer tricked me  into taking a dose of your restorer.  Under its influence I owned right up  that I had asked for the girl's hand  three different times, and she was  awarded ������4,000. I shall warn all my  friends against your decoction." '  Forgotten Man Restored.  Miss M. B. of Detroit writes: "I  think such men as you ought to be put  behind prison bars. I was about to be  married the other day when a stranger  to me rose up and forbade tbe banns.  I fainted, and to bring me to they  poured a big dose of your restorer  down my throat. When I revived the  stranger was a stranger no longer, but  a man I had accepted several years  ago and forgotten all about. He's lop  shouldered and knockkneed. but I've  got to keep ray promise. I trust that  your days tn the land may lie short  and full of woe."  Deacon Thompson of Oswego writes:  '���������One day inst- week my wife came  home from the drug store with a bottle of your memory restorer and a  great story of what It would do. Just  before setting out for prayer meeting  that evening 1 took a dose.

Sir James Crichton-Browne Says One  I* no Excuse for Other.  Sir James Crichton-Browne, the distinguished phvsieian, who has been  the Lord Chancellor's Visitor in  Lunacy since 1,575. is at variance with  the majority of those who have expounded' their views on lunacy and  divorce ��������� before the Divorce Commission.  When he gaye evidence at Winchester House he declared that the  proposal that insanity of any duration or kind should constitute a  ground for divorce, seemed to him  highly 'objectionable.  "Insanity is simply a bodily disease," he add?d. "manifestinsr itself  in mental derangement, and if it were  to be recognized ns' a sufficient reason for div'orcp, I do not see why  many other bodily diseases should  ���������not be also.  "Insanity is a disease and a visitation of God. and to allow any disease, no matter what its nature,or  extent, to annul a mutual contract  explicitly or tacitly acknowledged  hithe.to by all who have entered into  it to bs 'for better or worse, in sickness and in health,' would, be, it  seems to me, to truckle to selfishness,  to undermine those altruistic sentiments which have played so great a  part in human progress, nnd to be in  some measure a reversion to the ruth-  lessnes" of savage life."  In reply to a question by the Archbishop of York," Sir James told a  good story  "Years ago," he said, "a medical  friend of mine became encaged to a  young lady and married her.  "In the carriage on the way to the  station after the ceremony the young  man discovered that his bride had  suddenly gone mad. He hesitated  whether to take her back to her par-,  ents or continue the journey to,the  Continent. He decided on the la'tter  course.  "While they were crossing the  Channel the younsr wife threw herself  overbo'ird, but, buoyed up by the  crinoline she was wearing, she was  saved  "Her delirium disappeared at the  time of the rescue, and the couple  lived happily -together for twenty  yen rs."  Sir Jumes suic he was not entitled  to an opinion on the subject of divorce generally any more than any  other man in the street, but he could  not help thinking that, instead of  allowing greater laxity in divorce  and popularizing it, the sound policy  in the long run would he to abolish  it altogether, and to hold 'men and  women lor good and all to their  mdtiimonia! bonds.

Every Indulgence Is Given to Prisoners  at  the   Last.  What happens to a man, condemned  lo die on the scaffold, from the time  ho-leaves the dock doomed, to the moment the small body of men enter his  cell one morning to inform him that  the hour has come for the carrying  oui of the orders of the law?  A condemned man has a few privileges not eccording to other convicts.  He mny be allowed to smoke, he may  be granted a little beer on occasions,  his food may be just as he choose?,  but all this greatly depends on the  governor of tho prison.  A condemned prisoner is never left  alone, day or.night; warders are always in "the cell, and in the centre  of the floor stands a small table, and  on it rests a book. This book must be  carefully written up, for it must contain a complete account of all the con  vict's doing, his sayings, his requests,  and so forth. In short, it contains  a detailed account of the convict's life  in the condemned cell, and nothing  must be omitted.  Naturally this book makes very interesting reading, .but it is quite impossible to have a look at it, for after  th .* execution is over the book is carefully sealed, and is known of 'no mor,e.  unless the Home Office, for, some rea  son, desires to peruse its pages.  A condemned prisoner does not go  out to exercise with other convicts;  he is taken out quite alone when no  inquisitive eyes may rest on .him, and  he is not paraded for Church "service  with the others. He does attend cha  pel, but he occupies a pew by himself, and is screened off so that other  convicts may not see" him.  Sometimes a condemned man play?  dominoes or draughts with the ward  ers in charge of him���������it is a rule to in  dulge any condemned'prisoner so fa'  as possible, but a daily paper he is noi  allowed to have, although he may read  as much as he likes, but only volumes  from the prison library.   He^doea no  work unless he specially asks for it,  and then he is only give such tasks  as do not necesitate the using of sharp  tools in case, of any attempt at sui  cide.  A condemned man may write and  receive letters, and he may see visi  tors, but never alone���������a warder is'always present, and visitors soe the con  vict through a- form of grille���������the)  may neither touch nor kiss him.  On the morning of the execution  the prisoner is awakened early. Breakfast is given, and it consists of what  the doomed man'desires. Afterwards  he may smoke, and await the comina  of the chaplain. The latter official ir  always in the condemned cell on the  morning of execution.  In duo time the convict's ordinary  clothes are handed in, and these he ir  required to put on, but no collar or tie  accompanies the suit of clothes. They  are net wanted, for the neck must not  be covered up in any way.  Within a few minutes of eight  o'clock or nine o'clock, a small bod)  of men reach the door of the condemn  ed cell���������they are the officials entrusted with the carrying but of the law's  demands.

Face Death Under Water Rather Than  the Huntw 'Above.     - - _ '  ,./fhe. cunning'exhibited by* certain  species *sfftwri fowl when wounded  is remarkable. Many a duck hunter  haa winged birds from a flock and  seen thern d., never apparently to  return to the surface again." Certain  kinds of ducks -which are obtuse in  their willingness to come to decoys  become, when struck by a bullet, little devils of almost sarcastic cleverness.  A case in point occurred not long  ago when a duck hunter on the St.  Lawrence showered a big coot with  " -c shot from his boat secluded in a  rush bed.. The duck first attempted to  "risoj but discovering that'its wing  ^..s-erippiod, immediately dropped into .the water again and dove. The  hunter stood up in his boat with his  gun leveled for a second shot at the  "bird when it should come to' the'surface, but he waited in vain for the reappearance 'of ms game'.'    : '���������' <���������"���������''  There were few ducks,flying to occupy his attention, so he determined  to row out and solve if possible the  mystery, of'-the coot's disappearance.'*  Thj water-under the'decoys'.was shallow enough for him-to see clearly Jhe:  weed covered bottom; and *he paddled  carefully about' riea'r the spot where"  he had seen the wounded duck lungo  below the surface.    Suddenly, in the  clear water below the gunwale of hi*  boat, he-saw-the'solution of the mystery.  "Anchored a-few feet from'the bottom by a thick reed stalk, wings out'  .stretohed <and, head   hanging -Hinply  ���������"down/ over his- back^ was the body of  Jhe"elusive' coot.   .With'the tension j1  'a.death'  grip it was evident he ha'l  clutched   the- weed< to   keep-hims������l*  rrom rising again to the surface where  he had received before the pain from  the -'.wounding   bullet.- ^Rather   than  give himself up to this strange enemy,  he -had   preferred   to  remain  at  the  bottom.  -Running,his oar blade into the wnt-  r, the' hunter tried to dptnch hi-  Tame; but so tenaciously did the feet  -���������ling that it was only by severing the  A'eed itself that the duck was brought  igain to the surface. Even when tak-1  en into the boat, the bird's death  crrip remained fast upon the rush  stalk:  'Another instance of the straits to  which a wounded, duck will resort in  ,avading a hunter was furnished by an  ,American golden eye. The bird had  been wounded - among decoys in a  small water hole of a frozen lake.  When he dove and failed to reappear,  the hunter walked to the other side of  the'hole, and there,.through the transparent ice, was astonished to see his  game swimming with.bo'th feet and  wings' along just~-under the ice. Tt  was evident that .the'wounded duck  in its fright, had sfone under the ice  and was .frantically swimming,aboul  in search of an opening. The'hunter  followed the desperate bird for some  little distance. Then the poor crea  hire's strokes began to grow'weaker,  the wing action ceased, and finallj  the body lay still against the.under  surface of the ice. With an axe the  hunter chonned out the drowned duck  Predicted    That    the\ Fpur\j Western  Provinces Will  Have Ten Million  '   ~,        People   Before   1920*"    "  * (From the New York Commeicial)  Before 1920 the tour,-provinces of  Manitoba, SaskLt-hevan, Alberta and  Bntish Columbia.will have a population of at least 10,000,000 Having per-  sonallv visited the nfost important dis-  tncts "of these provinces and caiefully  studied the changes and developments  that aie in progiess 1 make this prediction boldly It is not a vagary of  >n optimist,_but is bas,ed upon astonishing fact3 that confront the investigator wheievei he tuins.

But  mind -you, the means and influences  of growth that have ��������� produced these  figures were primitive' and>  i bortive  compared to those at work today and  that.^will increase the growth a hundred'fold in the next decade.  'The"present population has followed  the operations of one transcontinental  railroad; it carried the farmers'out to  the plains and into ,the ,valleys   and  showed them the way- to   independence and prosperity;'it staked out the  townsites that  are now the  bristling  cities;r it sliowed the settlers how_ to  farm successfully on the dry prairies,'  it'gave, them irrigation in some districts and all with such effect that in  1901 the average'value of farm crops,  in   Western   Canada   was   $10.33   per  acre as  against $9.41 in the United  States. . .���������   ���������  - In Jess than five years from ��������� now  there will be two aditional railroads  spanning the continent across Canada  to share the burdens 'and the responsibilities *to  development    with    the  Canadian west, as it was laigely the  ovpihind tiaffic that pioduced this  result. *  The income of the Canadian west  for 1909 was $330,000. This year it  exceeds this amount by $100,000,000  The building operations of twelve  prairie citips in the past thiee years  have exceeded $50,000,000. During  1909 there was laid in western Canada  by the three rairoads a mileage of  1,057 mile, representing an expenditure of $80,000,000. There are now  11,472 miles of railroad in the four  provinces.  Twenty-five years ago Milwaukee  was the leading wheat market of the  world; then, as the giain areas extended farther west and north, Minneapolis took the lead, and in the present year, owing to the marvellous advancement of wheat growing 'in the  prairie provinces. Winnipeg wrested  the pennant from her Minnesota rival,  and will hold it for a long time. The  figures 'for the past year are Winnipeg, 88,269,330 bushels; Minneapolis,  81,111,410 bushels. Winnipeg made  the startling increase in the year of  50 per cent, and now exceeds" Minneapolis by over 7,000,000 bushels.  The giain crop recently harvested  "after a season of drought that induced the pessimists to predict less  than half a crop, yielded over 200,000,-  000 bushels in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta and gave the farmers $165,000,000 in cash. The rush of  farmers from over the border and  from European countries continues,  and 21,000,000 additional acres of fertile land have" just Jbeen'opened to  settlers in Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

It may  occur as a single tiny spot, appearing and  disappearing with each chango la general  health or present only at certain seasons;  at tbe other extreme, the whole body may  be involved In a torturing eruption; The  latter condition may gradually .arise through  thevneglcct or improper treatment of lesser  troubles or an apparently healthy skin may.  In a single" day, becomo a mass of eczema.  'But whatever the form of tho affection, the  distressing Itching, burning, scaling and  crusting, tho serious disfigurement.and the  constant dread that tho eczema will become  chronic, mako a spe'edy cure the aim of every  sufferer. Unfortunately, such a euro Is not  always readily obtained. The most skilled  physician la often at a loss and even hospitals  are forced to discharge the patient as incurable. Then a wide variety of Remedies are  resorted to, many perfectly harmless and  ' equally ineffective, others so offensive to  every sense that, wero it not for the "relief  they are supposed to afford, no person of  refinement would tolorato them for an Instant.  To such sufferers, discouraged by repeated  (allures of even these, heroic methods, the  Instant relief afforded by tho first bath with,  Cutlcura Soap and gcntlo application of  Cutlcura Ointment Is almost Incredible. Tlicy-  stop tho itching and burning at once, make  sleep possible and, In most cases,'point to  a speedy cure. So pure and sweet are Cutlcura  Soap and Ointment and so free from every  substance of a disagreeable or harmful nature  that they can be used without hesitation on  the youngest infant or tendcrest skin. Besides, they are most economical, a slnglo set  being often sufficient for the treatment of  even tho severest cases, y *  In proof of the efficacy of tho Cutlcura  Remedies it will bo enough to quote hero a  slnglo letter, from Mrs. Edward Kenning, '  11 Lansing Block, Watcrtown, N.Y.: "Four  years ago I suffered with a terrible eczema,  being a mass of sores from head to fiet nnd  for six months confined to my bed. During  that time I suffered continual torture, from  Itching and burning. After, being given up  by my doctor, I was advised to try Cutlcura.  After tlio first bath with Cutlcura Soap and  application of Cutlcura Ointment I. en joyed  the first .good sleep during my entire Illness.  I also used Cutlcura Resolvent and tho treatment was continued for three weeks. At the  end of that time I was entirely cured and  havo felt no ill effects since. I would ndvlse  any person Buffering from any form of skin  troublo tojtry the Cutlcura Remedies, as I  know what they did for me."

'  Some outspoken remarks concerning  selfish bachelors were made by the  Rev. Dr. Hemphill of Tipperary at  the conference of the Church of Ireland at Belfast recently.  -A woman of the farming class, he  said, remarked to him-the other day  that the population was running very  thin. He' wondered what had come  over the young men that they preferred patent leather boots and spats  and a fortnight's "swelling" at the  seaside, with a game of billiards every  evening, to the joys of family life.  Their wages would not allow both  the fine clothes and a wife. They  chose the clothes, and let some sweet  girl pine out hei life in maidenhood.  They were wretched fellows who dil  not know in what true happiness consisted. Better the love of sweet and  pure wife than all the silk socks and  gciidy waistcoats in the  world.  "Ckinie back," said Dr. Hemphill,  "to the simple life. Learn true joy  consists in woman's gentle love. This  drary bachelorhood is destroying  yours by making you selfish and destroying'hers by robbing her of the  husband and children God intended  for her."  - H.3 knew that things were dear, and  that people expected more luxury than  their parents,had, but those expectations ��������� must , be discouraged. "For  God'3 sake," he concluded, "pitch  away your tobacco, annual outing,  your fine clothes, your.clu.b, and.whatever else makes such arn inroad on  your income that you cannot think  of holy marriage. It is' a glorious  thing to be the father or mother of  even-the poorest family."   . ���������-ir  Cleaning London  Over 65,840,000 gallons of watei  were used last year in washing and  watering the streets -of the city of  London. The quantity of refuse removed from the city by 'the corporation during the year was 51,821 van  loads taken from the premises and  28,930 loads of sweepings from the  public ways, making a total of 80,759  loads, or about 263 ^per working day.  A countryman on a visit to Dublin  wished lo buy a watch, and, having  selected one, asked the cost. And being told the price of it, he said it  was too dear.'  "But," said the shopman, "I must  charge extra for the chasing."  "Well," said" the countryman, "how  much will it be ,if I pay ready cash  and you have no chasing to do?"  Some men would be moie" truthful  were it not for their uncontrollable  desire to. hand out doubtful information.  A certain country minister _was one  day visiting some of the church members, umong whom was. an old gossiping woman, who was always complaining of something. No sooner had  he sat down than she began with her  grumbling.  "But," said the minister, "I don't  see what you 'are-always, grumbling  at. For instance,' your- potatoes are  the best 1 have ever seen in the village."  "Ah," replied the woman, "bul  whar's the bad ones for the pigs?"-    *  They Cleanse While They Cure.--  The' vegetable compounds of which  Parmelee's Vegetable Pills are composed, mainly dandelion and mandrake, clear the stomach and intestines of deleterious matter and restore  the deranged organs to healthful action. Hence they aie the best remedy for indigestion available to-day.  A trial of them -will establish the  truth i of-this assertion and do more  to convince the ailing, than anything  that can be written of these pills."  ' A country editor, noticing the decease of a wealthy gentleman, ob-  seives:  "He hrs disci rcgietted by a numerous, circle, of fiiends, and leaving a  widow as disconsolate as any widow  need be who has obtained the- uncontrolled possession of five thousand per  annum. More than- twenty young  men have sent letters of condolence  to her." ���������  Roads Lead to the Great British  i , Metropolis. '  A reference is made to "the most  brilliant of the younger Canadian  statesmen" in" an article in The London Daily Mail. While no name is  given the reference probably is the  Hod. W L M.

No paper gave  a word about his "personality, -and  yet all who know Ottawa are aware  that before many years are over he  will probably be Premier of the Do  minion. A brief advertisement tells  me that Mr. Haywood is to speak at  the Memorial Hall on social conditions in America Mr. Haywood goes  unreported, London knows him not  Yet what memories that name calls  up tto those of us ,who remember the  great labor %war in Colorado when the  millionaires* and their employes stood  against one another, pressing into  service every weapon���������from dynamite  to promiscuous butchery���������they could  lay their hands on. Haywood stood  his trial because of this, a trial that  was the sensation of all America. In  London he disappears in the crowd.  There is one hotel known to me not  very far from.
