PLACE  NOT AS ADVERTISED.  Beautiful Lake Turns Out to Be a  Swamp, and There Are Other Deficiencies���������Old Fellow Is Fined $15  For Contempt of Court.  [Copyright, 1907, by Homer Sprague.]  "Can you pack wbat things you will  need for a two weeks' vacation by 8  o'clock tomorrow morning?" asked Mr.  Bowser as be arrived home from tbe  office the other evening.  "Why, 1 thought you had given up  looking for a place," replied Mrs. Bowser.  "I had, but I happened to ran across  this ad. in the paper today, and I liko  the wording of it so well that I'm going to take chances. Head it and as  soon as dinner is over set about packing your trunk."  Mrs. Bowser took the paper and read:  . "A farmhouse situated on the shores  of Lake Paul, twenty miles from the  city, will take a few select boarders  for the last two or three weeks In August. Table unexcelled. No children  or dogs. No Chinese taken. Boating,  bathing and fishing. Family prayers  night and morning. A quiet, restful  place from the turmoil of the -world."  "It seems' to be the place we have  been looking for," she said, "and yet"���������  "It surely is the place," he finished.  "The man who holds family prayers in  his house night aiid morning can't be  a liar or a swindler. Bight on the  shores of a lake,, and we can swing in  our hammock under the trees and hear  ���������the water lap and gurgle. No durned  squint eyed Chinese around, no children whooping and yelling, no dogs to  w-eHT siMokm'g cruy pipes'and'the' woman gnawing'away at a windfall.  "Are those.some of your.select boarders?" risked'Mr: Bowser after rooking  them over.  "They are, sir, nnd they say they  never enjoyed themselves better. They  drank a gallon of buttermilk between  them this morning. I forgot to put  that in the advertisement���������that buttermilk was free to guests. Excuse  me, sir, but you're making so many  inquiries it leads me io ask if you are  a very particular person? If you are  not, perhaps your wife is."  "We are not liars and .swindlers!"  replied Mr. Bowser, who had begun to  get mad as soon as seeing the house.  '���������By which you would convey the  impression"���������  "That the owner of a shacklety old  ranch like this who advertises as you  do ought to get three mouths in Jail at  the very least! It's' a swindle, sir!  It's an outrage!"  "Sir," replied the other as he drew  himself up with much dignity, "I took  notice of you while you were yet half  a mile away. I did not like your gait.  I did not like your shape. As you  came still nearer I saw your face to  mistrust It. You will excuse me, sir,  when I say that I could not take you  in here as a select boarder. Indeed, I  could not take you In at all."  "And you, hold family prayers night  and morning," shouted Mr. Bowser In  his wrath.  Stopped by a Constable.  Tho solemn looking man whistled  for his big dog, and the three boarders  rose up and came over. Mr. Bowser  was told to go. He looked nt> the  crowd and at the dog and went. On  his way back to the depot he was boiling over with indignation and unconsciously lengthened his stride. He had  not yet reached the building when a  constable stepped out from a fence  corner with a watch in liis hand and  said:  "I make It thirty-five miles an hour,  and you will come with me!"  "What in thunder is this all about?"  demanded Mr. Bowser.  "Running your auto beyond the legal  speed limit."  "But I have no auto."  "Same thing. You were humping  along at thirty-five miles an hour, mad  as a wet hen, and any collision with  you would have been dangerous to life  and limb. Come along.".  Mr. Bowser had to walk a mile with  him .to the house of a justice of the  peace. The justice was not prepared  to agree with the constable that a  baldheaded man with duck legs' was  the same thing as an auto, and the  victim might have escaped a fine had  he kept quiet. He couldn't do that,  but turned to and called the constable  a' fool and his honor an ass and .was  fined $15 for contempt of court and  given one hour to get out of the county. M. QUAD.

Anyhow I think it a better plan for you to take a run out  there first and engage the rooms. If  It's only twenty miles you can go out  -and back in a day. The place is probably all'they claim for it, but I'd feel  better if you saw it first."  "I can go out, of course, but It's a  needless trip. I think from the reading  of the ad. that the owner is-a church  Ueacon. He might beat some one In a  ihorse trade, but he wouldn't deliberately lie to get a few boarders. You  notice that he says 'select.' He wants  none of the riffraff around him. That's  :Tvhat I want for the next few days, a  place where I can sit down and think  some thoughts. Yes, I'll take a day off  and go out there, and you can be packing while I'm gone."  "But you'll be prepared for a disappointment at the same time?" she suggested.  "I don't see why I should.

During������ the   evening   Mr.    Bowser  could not keep the subject out of his  talk for over ten 'minutes at a time,  nnd when he at last went to bed and  fell   asleep   Mrs.   Bowser   heard   him  muttering   about   prayers   and   lakes  and  bass and shady places.   lie was  off  as  soon  as  he  had   finished  his  breakfast,   and   it   was   not   yet   10  o'clock in f the forenoon when he was  'dropped   at   a   little   country  station.  There was no one around the place,  ���������   but   a  sign   directed  him,   and   after  plodding along the highway for three-  quarters of a mile he came to a farmhouse with a sigu on the gate to the  effect that  boarders  were  taken.   A  very solemn looking man came down  thc path to meet him, nnd when they  liud shaken hands Mr. Bowser queried:  "V believe you advertise to take a  few select summer boarders  for the  next two or three weeks?"  "You are correct," was the answer.  "Where are you going to put them?"  "In the house, sir."  It was a lonesome looking old house.  Pancst of glass had been broken out,  Ihe roof needed repairs, and only one  forlorn apple tree stood within a hundred feet of the door for shade.

Made Well and Strong by Dr  Hams' .Pink Pills  Every dose of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills makes new blood. Every drop  of pure blood brings the ill, disheartened woman nearer to health and  happiness. Dr.. Williams' Pink'Pills  have brought the glow of health to  thousands of sufferers, ' who gladly  bear testimony to that effect. One of  these is Mrs. Elizabeth Dunham, of  Wclland, Ont., who says: "For more  than a year-I was greatly run down.  I had sickening headaches and my  heart would palpitate so violently  that at times I feared death was near.  I was under the care of a doctor, but  instead of improving 1 lost strength  and my weight decreased from one  hundred and forty to ninety pounds.  I was discouraged, but finally decided  to give up the doctor's treatment and  try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I am  glad I did so, for after using the Pills  a few weeks I could see a marked improvement in my condition. The  headaches left me; I 'regained  strength; the distressing heart palpitation ceased^and at the end of two  months I wasMully restored to health  and.felt better than I had for the  past twenty years. Dr. .Williams'  Pink Pills are -truly a marvelous  medicine- and I cannot praise them  enough."

Raiiway Companies at Solicitation of  Board of Trade \Offer  Inducements  "  to  Farmers to Ship Grain 'at Once  At'a recent meoting'of the Winnipeg Board of Trade a "question that  'was  discussed   at   some  length  was  that of urging ��������� upon  the  farmers  of  the west the advisability of marketing their grain  as early  as possible  this fall.   The view held is that the  present good   prices   prevailing-   for  grain, together with the stringency of  the money market, makes it desirable,  in the .interests of the farmers and the '  country generally that the crop should  be marketed "without unnecessary delay.  'The   following   resolution .was.'  passed by the-Board: '     ''���������'���������������  1. "While it is contrary to the usage of the Winnipeg Board of Trade  to offer advice as to the disposition  of the crop, yet in view "of the fact,  no,w evident, 'that a _large quantity, '  of this year's grain crop is of-- low  grade, for which at the present time  good prices can be obtained, this  Board considers it in" the 'interests  of the farmers and therefore of the  country generally, that, these facts-be  given all. possible publicity,' and  farmers urged to market early, especially their grains of low grade, thus  taking advantage of the good prices  now prevailing.  ��������� 2." "This Board also points out as  an additional reason for early market-"'  ing, the present extreme stringency  in the money market, which '��������� makes  it highly necessary'that .all liabilities  should be .liquidated as, speedily as  possible, arid such speedy liquidation  can only be accomplished by the  prompt disposal of the grain crop.  ���������-3. "It is also desirable in view, of  the . above conditions ��������� that farmers  and, the railway companies combine  to move, if possible, tlie- Whole" of the  low grade grain, before the close of  navigation,' and this Board will gladly assist in every-possible way to  bring about so desirable a result. -    7,  4. "As.-a' means of accomplishing  this,  the  railway companies,  at the  solicitation of this Board, have issued  ���������  the - following   order   regarding minimum weights: '    .  '"In order to'encourage ,the early,  movement of low grade -'and light  weight grains, the following regulation will apply until ^December 1st,  1P07: When cars loaded with grain  tc their full visible capacity show an  out-turn less - than tariff minimums,  actual weight only will be charged _  for, stlhject to a minimum.of 40,000  lbs. for oats, and 50,000 lbs. for wheat,  barley, flaxseed, rye and speltz.'

Shake these well in a bottle  and take in teaspoonful doses after  each meal,and at bedtime; also dnnk  plenty of good water.  It is claimed that there are few victims of this'dread and tortuous disease who will fail to find ready relief  in tlys simple home-made mixture,  nnd in most cases a permanent cure  rs the result.  This simple recipe is said to  strengthen and cleanse the elimma-  tive tissues of the Kidneys so that  they can filter and strain from the  blood and system the poisons, acids  and waste matter, which cause 'not  only"Kheumatism, but numerous other  diseases. Every man or 'woman here  who feels that their kidneys are/not  healthy and active, and who suffer  from any urinary trouble whatever,  should not hesitate to make up this  mixture, as it is certain to do much  good, and may save you frcm much  misery  and suffeting  after  awlii1".
