The Wolf That  Saw Her and  Made Her His Own.  By! F.B. WRIGHT.  It had beenu hard day for'the,little  schoolmistress. The children had been  stupid nnd unitinous and at the worst  time ��������� had .come a supervisor to criticise the luck of discipline. Miss Win-  throp was too young, he had said.  Perhaps the board should got a more  experienced teacher.  What that meant Cicely did not dare  to  think,  and   now,   crouched  iu   the  darkness  by   the garret  window, she  was trying to forget  her worries, for  there were to be a garden party nnd'  masquerade  at   the   Sto'uing-ton   place  near by.    From tlie window she could  overlook   tlie   grounds,   nil   a-twinkle  with .innumerable'  Japanese .lanterns;  see the house itself, its lighted.porches,  its windows lively with many'colored  passing figures, and  watch  tlie ladies  arriving nt the entrance and  floating  'in like white moths out of the summer  night,  At  first it  was enough Just to sit  there, head on sill, watching it all and  heariug tho swing and rhythm of the  faint dance music.   Hut little by little  came over her a longing to hnve some  part in  the gnyety  her whole young  spirit   craved.     She   was   young  too.  She was  pretty,  as   her  mirror  told  her.   She had loved dancing in the old  days.    Ah, those days!   They seemed  so far off, and yet only two years separated 'them from  the present.    Now  life was so different���������no more girlhood,  no   more   pleasure,   no'  more   pretty  clothes or jolly parties.   That last one,  the oue Just  before her father died���������  that had been a bal masque too.   The  costume wait in her trunk now���������ns If  she would ever get the chance to wear  it again!  And yet why not? A sudden thought  set her heart thumping. Why not go  to this one? Only for a moment. It  was a masquerade. So one would  know her. She could slip in through  the shrubbery unobserved, mingle with  the crowd and then��������� The plan was  very dazzling to the little girl in the  garret window.  pen to my flock?   No; I can't take tho  risk."  "Then when Is the shepherdess com-  ing to court again?"  "Never, I'm afraid. Yon see, she's  only allowed one evening off, In years,  and, besides, she has no Court costume. Oh, this���������a fairy godmother  touched the shabby gown and the big  shoes, and when the night is over they  change back as they were."  "And the girl ?"  "Oh, she will be whisked away too."  "Not before unmasking time cornea  anyway. There is the signal now," he  said'ns a chime of bulls rang in the  distant hall, followed by the sound of  laughter. "Ah,,you are caught, fairy  shepherdess! Now disappear if you  can." He drugged off his mask and  waited expectant, looking at the girl.  Cicely, felt the blood rush to her face.  "I���������I must go,"';she said hurriedly and  rose.   "1 didn't know it was so late."  "Go!   Why, you know you promised  mc supper, and''���������  "I didn't think.    I forgot for a moment.   No, I must."  "Without unmasking?"  "I can't.   Don't ask me why.   There  are reasons. Oh, I can't explain. Pleaso j  let me get away!" she cried, for the I  man had stepped before the door. Cice-|  ly cast a  hurried glance.about    She  spied a door leading into the garden,  and before the cavalier could guess her  intention she had lied through it blindly Into the night, he after her.  She did not know where she ran nor  care. Her only thought was to escape  discovery, to get away home before exposure came. On she tied, across the  lawn, into the shadow of the shrubbery,  tripping over roots, held back by clinging vines, lior mask brushed from her  face, her breath giving out and discovery and shame at her heels. Then sho  tried to find some hiding place and,  failing, sank down on a bench, with a  bitter, despairing cry, and buried her  face in her hands.  "Why did you run?   You might havo  known you couldn't escape me," said  her pursuer as he came up.    Then as  he   heard   the  girl's  sobs,   "Are  hurt?"  "FRUIT-HIVES" SAVES HER  Clanbrassie, Ont.  Two years ago, the doctor made forty-  four calls on me and then said he had done  all he could for me. I was suffering with  intense Kidney Trouble and severe inflammation had set in. Two other doc-tors  were consulted and agreed that nothing  could be done to help me.  On, the recommendation of a neighbor,  I took "Fruit-a-tives" and they cured me.  To-day, I take "Fruit-a-tivcs" as my only  medicine. I am in excellent health and  "Fruit-a-tives, is the medicine that-cured  me after I had been at dentil's door for  months.  I am glad to be able to give you this  testimonial. It may benefit some other  woman sufiering as I suffered, as I believe  that I would not be alive to-day had I not  used ''Fruit-a-tives."  Mrs. P.

The life and movement, the kaleidoscopic play of color, the sheen ;and  luster of silk and satin, the gleam of  snowy arms aud shoulders, the. fragrance of: flowers, the admiration of  her partners, tilled tlie girl's heart witli  " delight, and her courage rose to the  occasion. She was surprised to find  how behind the protection of her mask  she could act her part even as if she.  too. belonged to the party.  Once in the swirl of a waltz sbi'  caught sight of herself in a long uiir- ,  ror and doubted her eyes. Could that  be she. that 'dainty, graceful madcap  with her cheeks (lushed, her eyes sparkling 'through the slits in her visor,  her hair in golden disorder at her neck  ���������that Cicely Winthrop, with her own  living to make and shabby clothes to  wear? And the music���������it seemed to  lift her on.its wings and bear her over  the floor as lightly as any thistledown.  That was what her last partner had  said, a cavalier of Charles II., when at  the end of a dance they were sitting in  the dimly lighted conservatory.  "Thistledown! I believe that's what  you are, or else a fairy. No shepherdess could dance as you do, not even  one out of Watteau. and, besides, where  are your sheep? You haven't even oue  little innocent snow white lamb!"  "I've escaped for a moment from  them."  "Faithless shepherdess!  afraid of wolves?"  "Awfully!   One came Into the sheep-  fold today, a very savage one."  "The poor lambs!   My heart bleeds"���������  "It  needn't    They  only  eat shepherdesses."  "The brutes! Do you have to fight  them single handed?"  Cicely nodded. "It's hard sometimes."  "Don't you need an assistant shepherd to help? I like to kill! wolves,  and i adore sheep and���������shepherdesses." ���������,;���������:':  Aren't you  "Yes. yes," she sobbed, "but not as  you think! Oh, why did I ever come?  How am I to tell you? What will  you think of me? I ought not to bo  here tonight. 1 am not a guest. I  had no right to come."  It was a confession punctuated by  sobs and little gasps of pain that tho  cavalier listened to.  "1 saw the lights," Cicely added,  "and then the waltz music came to  me. ar.d I couldn't resist it. I thought  there'd be no harm���������Just for an -hour,  and then 1 could go back and.no ono  would know, and I could have ono  I pleasant memory among dreary, drudg-  ' Ing days.

It's been���������I  can't: tell you what this evening has  been���������except this last."  "Do you care so much, then, that I  know   who  you   are?"    The  cavalier  was standing beside the shepherdess,  looking down at the1 bent head showing so softly in  the dusky shadows.  "I would have sought you out in any  case���������if I had to search the world over.  Do you care now that I know?"  "No." returned Cicely softly.  "And I may come tomorrow and see  the Iambs���������and the shepherdess."  "I don't think it would be best for  the lambs, but���������I usually come home  from the sheepfold by way of the red  bridge and"��������� *>  "It you saw a wolf waiting by  bridge, would you mind?"  "Not If it was a nice wolf."  "And if the wolf were to carry you  off and  the Iambs  have to have another shepherdess would you be very  much scared?" asked the cavalier.  "I���������I don't think so," whispered tho  little Dresden shepherdess. "I think���������  I'd rather like it."  Thc Influence of Greenwich.

It is said, that Bach's ,  music  sounds   much  differently   now j  from what it did when Bach wrote it  because   the   Instruments '- are   now  pitched higher.   In 1882 it was found  that the pitch of high A at the Vienna  Court Opera had crept from the prescribed 435 double vibrations a second  to 443, and in I8S5 this number had  further increased to 430.   Accordingly  a musical conference was held, and a  resolution   was  taken  to  re-establish  the old  pitch of 435 vibrations  per  second.   Upon this announcement the  Reichsanstalt,   the   imperial   physical  and   technical, institute  of, Germany,  set up standard instruments and has  since tested and corrected many hundreds of tuning forks, shortening them  if they are too low In pitch and thinning the arms if they are too high. All  the  military  orchestras of  Germany  are pitched alike, and the Reiehsan-  stadt keeps the tuning forks correct.  Most Kings Are Mason.  ��������� The fact that iving George assumed  his father's place as patron of the  Royal Masonic institution for Boys,  recalls the fact that nearly! all King*  of 1-Jurope and all members of Royal  Houses are Masons, save the Emperor  and the Czar.  The Kaiser's father was a Mason,  and so was his,grandfather, but William, when asked to join the Masons,  replied that he was Chief Bishop of  Prussia, and a bishop couldn't be a  Mason.  As a matter of fact, William I. and ,  Frederick I. were Chief Bishops.    .  The Royal Masonic Institute spend-!  annually ?500,0C0 for the education of  boys, and the lodge to wliich King  George belongs gives more money for  charitable purposes than any other in  the world.  HOW TO CURE  STOMACH TROUBLE  A Great Sufferer from Indigestion Tells How  She Was Cured  Stomach  trouble is a general name  for all forms  of- indigestion, whether  great  pain  after eating,  belching    of  wind, heavy  feeling  in  the stomach,  nausea, or trie sharp pains that often  make you think you have heart trouble.    There aro two things noticeable  'in   indigestion.    One  is   that  doctors  always   find   indigestion   a   prominent  symptom   in   a   bloodless    run-down  state.    The other,  that sufferers  usu-  ally find relief when a tonic is taken  that restores the general health. With  out a doubt stomach trouble is simply  stomach'weakness, and the cure is to  make  the .'stomach'':strong  enough  to  digest   food    without   tiouble.      Any  otner treatment is patchwork and can- i  not cure. As tlio processes of digestion  are  controlled    by    the    blood    and  nerves, the stomach that is too weak  to digest food needs a tonic to give it  strength.. And in all the world there is  no better tonic than    Dr.    Williams'  Pink Pil.'s.   Tlicy actually make new,  rich red blood, tone the nerves and so  strengthen   the  stomach   and  all   the  bodily functions.   We submit the following  as proof that Dr.     Williams'  Pink -.Pills   will  cure  even   the  most  obstinate cases    of    stomach trouble.  Mrs.  John  Graf,  Fort Saskatchewan,  Alfa., says:    "For   years   1   suffered  great   torture   from   indigestion.

Then the  wisdom of the British war office decided that it should protect Pembroke'  docks, perhaps ten miles away by land  nnd thirty by sea, and on the top of  the rock was built a fort.  But when  the big guns  wero  mounted  it  waa-  found that they could not bo fired, for  they shook dowu the rock from the  arched   passages   and    might   have  shaken down the fort itself.

Wooden drinking troughs are about  as reliable as the weather.  They are short-lived and require replacing every few years���������not to mention  continual patching to keep them in repair.  The best of wood cannot withstand,  for long, constant dampness and soaking.  Its tendency to rapid decay soon shows ,  itself in leaks and stagnant pools of  water around trough.  Contrast with this the durability,  cleanliness and well-ordered appearance  of Concrete.  The dampness which destroys lumber  only intensifies the strength and hardness  of Concrete.

The breeding of canaries in Yorkshire, Eng., lias become of recent' ycari  quite an- important minor household  industry. ' Indeed it is stated that,  outside of Norwich (in the' neighboring County of Norfolk), which is sometimes.: called the City of Canaries,  there is no place where this industry  is carried on so extensively as in the  Britain Sobering Up  The most, significant account of social progress is that which marks last  year's decline in the sale of intoxicating liquor in England : ancl Wales.  Thus there was u decrease of 9.4 per.  cent, in the convictions for drunkenness and'of 11.28 per cent, in the conviction of women for the same offence.  The. number of on-licenses is also  less by 1.472 than in 1908, though here  the deptine has been continuous for a  number of years. On the other hand,  there is a not increase of 342 clubs,  and they have grown by 20.31 per cent,  Bradford  district. .       lnn. .-   .        . -    .     ,  "That the rearing of canaries should   ���������^ ^J^tf,��������� ft^I  be a popular and at the same time a  profitable hobby in a textile district  is not surprising when one learns  that the -introduction of these cage  birds into England dates back to the  days when, the Flemish weavers migrated to the ' town of' Worsted, in  Norfolk, and brought with them these  little caged songsters to cheer their  homos in which they ran their looms.  : Tho silk weavers who fled from Franca  and established themselves near London are also said to have been instrumental in establishing this home industry of rearing canaries.  This industry is a commendable onol  for those pursuing a sedentary occupation. Aside from the fact that it  furnishes . pleasant employment' for  spare time, it also enables those who  keep a few birds to increase their  small wages'(one workingman is said  to have made $400 in one season by  this means), while tlie large breeders  make proportionately more. Though  oidinary birds sell for a few shillings,  prize winners< realize as much as $50  or $75, or even higher.  The export trade in canaries is considerable, shipments being made to  Australia, South Africa and other  British colonies, and also to the United States. It is stated that one firm  alone in Norwich has sent as many as  10,000 birds a year across the Atlantic.  Tho exhibition of cage birds that  are held frequently throughout the  country also do much to stimulate  this industry. The Fifty-first Annual  Cage-L'ird Show, held in the spring  of this year at the Crystal Palace,  had about 3,000 entries, a large proportion being canaries. It is not unusual lo see 400 or 500 canaries at  Bradford exhibitions, which are held  under the auspices and the rules of  the Yorkshire Union, usually in council schools, on Saturdays, from October to December.  Among the many varieties of canaries in. Britain, each possessing distinct characteristics, might be men-  tioned__the Norwich, the Cinnamon,  the London Fancy, the Lizard, the  Scotch Fancy, the Border Fancy, the  'Belgian, the Lancashire and the Yorkshire. ".The Yorkshire canary is a long,  slim, erect bird, either clear yellow,  clea'r buff, evenly marked, ticked or  variegated, or the green and the ein-  ���������uamon.'   r i  For  an  Ancient Crime.  .- Seven hundred years ago some  shepherds of tho valley of Roncal, in  'Navarre, were murdered by shepherds  .pf the valley of Bareton, in Beam,  -tlie crime taking place on the high  'pasture lands of Arias, in the Pyrenees. It would have been difficult  to bring the murderers individually  to justice, and the Spaniards were  preparing to make war upon the valley from which the French murderers had come, when the French villages proposed that peace be^ maintained at the price of a yearly tax  or tribute, to endure for all time, and  this proposition was accepted.  The  payment  of   this   blood   tax���������  , originally three, white marcs, but  later three cows of a particular, breed  ancl color���������has been made ever since,  the custom (it is nothing more) having survived even the great wars in  "which both France and Spain have  engaged, and the storm of the French  " revolution.  Yearly thc representative men of  the two" valleys meet on the frontier,  at a certain  stone  remote from any  . town, and go through the ceremony  of presenting and receiving the cattle. Theorder of procedure, which is  elaborate and impressive, is fixed hy  a document bearing the date..1375,  though the tax was paid  a  hundred  .-years prior to that time.   The records  ' of each yearly meeting and payment  are duly attested and deposited in  the archives of the Koncalais  6 per cent, in the population. The fi_  ures point, perhaps, to a new social  danger, and also to some unfairness to  the public-house' trade. The figures  that exhibit-' the decline of drinking  habits in Scotland and Ireland are  even more sweeping and conclusive.  ���������The Nation.

Blood-Poisoning From Cat  Tinger  Serious  Condition   Relieved  by  Zam-Buk  ' Mr. Jas. Davey, of 78G Ellice Ave.,  Winnipeg, says: "A few months since  I wa3 cured of a poisoned finger  through the timely use of Zam:Buk.  I cut ,u deep gash acids the knuckle  on the first finger of the right hand,  in opening a lobster can one evening.  I suffered at the time with the soreness and pain, but had no idea it  would become a serious wound. However, in about-two clays I was greatly  alarmed, as my whole'hand and arni.  to the elbow became inflamed, and  the finger was much discolored, showing signs of blood-poisoning. The pain  was dreadful and 1 was foiced to leave  off my work arid go home.  "The wound on" the-knuckle had  been poisoned through 'tlie dust and  dirt about the furnaces and boilers.  I then decided to start the Zam-Buk  treatment, and having first bathed the  cut, T applied the healing balm. . It  soothed tlie pain almost instantly, and  by the next day there was a great improvement. In a week's time, through  perserveiance witli Zam-Buk, a' complete cure was brought about."  Scores of similar cases could be  quoted, and the wisest precaution is  to keep a box of Zam-Buk handy and  apply it immediately a cut, or burn,  or bruise is sustained.  Zam-Buk will also be found a sure  cure for cold sor.es, chapped hands,  frost bite, ulcers, eczema, blood-poison, varicose sores, piles, scalp sores,  ringworm, inflaininod patches, babies'  eruptions and chapped places, cuts,  burns, bruises and skin injuries generally.

A young , Swede, invalided home  from the Congo, made a tragic miscalculation, of which Mr. Hubert  'Ward tells in his new book, "A Voic-J  from the Congo." "After an examination the doctors told him that he was  in a bad way, and gave him only ?ix  months to live. Far from being discouraged, our friend decided to obtain  as much pleasure out of this limited,  period of his life* as was possible with  the means nt his disposal. At the end  of six months his health was re-established. He had, however, spent all his  money. As he himself remarked,  when telling the story, 'I even selled  my watch.'"  Mr. Ward gives a curious instance  ol the fascination which the African  life exercises over the minds of those  who have once tasted it. "De Kuyper,  after spending twenty years on the  coast of Africa, started for home to  visit the land of his youth. Arriving j  after a few clays' at San Thome, an  island on the Equator lying off Gaboon, he said: 'I want to go back.  I've  had   enough  of  Europe.'"  "We do not want cloth," said the  people of the Malinga River to Mr.  Ward. "Give us something to wear.  Give us beads!"  Some Satisfaction.

A1 novel experience befell a Kirk-  caldy lady, who takes a keen interest  in poultry rearing, the other day. It  appears that she had^set a heri on a  dozen of eggs, and as the period of incubation expired she found ten chickens had hatched, while two eggs still  remained unhatched.' With a view to  giving them time to hatch she left the  eggs under the hen until next morning. ���������   .-  It so happened that she had arranged ' to travel to Edinburgh with a  friend next day,, and, after dressing  herself and finding she had still a few  minutes to spare before train time, she  decided to have a look ;at the eggs.  Proceeding to the garden she found  the eggs still unhatched, and, coming  to the conclusion that they must have  proved unfertile, she took the -eggs  and put one in each pocket of-her  ulster, with a view to taking them to  the house. On reaching the door she  found her-neighbor waiting for her  with the information^ that it would  take them all their tihie to catch the  train.  The lady accordingly ran into the  house for her umbrella and, forgetting all ahout the eggs, proceeded witli  all haste to the station. On approaching the ticket office she put her hand  in her pocket to get her purse, when  she was shocked to find that she had  omitted to leave tlie eggs behind.  Being afraid that they might get  broken and spoil her dress, she  throughout tlie journey sat with a  hand in each pocket holding the eggj.  The heat of her hands seemed to provide all that was necessary to complete, the hatching, and before her arrival at Waverlc-y Station she had a  healthy-looking chicken ' in ' each  pocket.  In the circumstances she decided to  take the next train back to Kirkcaldy,  but as-she had lo wait she paraded  the streets for a short time with a  bird in each pocket. On reaching  home she placed the chickens under  the hen, and they seemed to be none  the worse for their stiange experience.  Turner's Ambition.  Turner could not bear to-sell a  favorite painting. He was alwavs  melancholy after such a tiansaction.  "I have lost one of my children this  week," he would sadly exclaim. At a  meeting at Somerset House it was decided to purchase his two great pictures, the "Rise" and the "Fall of  Carthage," for the National Gallery. A  Mr. Griffiths was commissioned to offer $25,000 for them. "A noble offer,"  said the painter, "a noble offer; but,  no l cannot part with them. Impossible: Mr. GrLiiths, greatly disap-  pointed, took his leave. Turner ran  after liiin. "Tell those gentlemen," he  said, "that the nation will most likely  have tlie pictures after all."  Long before this Turner had matured a purpose which continued to be  his dominant idea while life lasted.  This was to bequeath to his country a  Turner gallery of. pictures and to  amass $500,000 to build and endow an  asylum for decayed artists.   It was for . .._    this great object that he denied him- i '6 the best remedy for diarrhoea,   it u*o-  splf nil nlonanruc tliot ���������w ���������,~.,������������������ ���������n lolutely harmless. lie sure and suit lor "lira  ben ail pleasures tliat-COat money, all WicslQ>'s Soolhiug Syrup," and take no othet  luxuries.-    HlS     resolve,     once     made,|   kind.

By  his will he bequeathed. $700,C00 to  found an asylum for "poor artists born  in England and a magnificent art collection to his country.

Here is the story. A little boy named  Harrison, an English. blacksmith's  son, had to look after his baby brother. The-baby often< cried, and its  tears were usually traced to pin punctures. The boy nurse tried a long  lime to bend the pins in such a form  that they could be used with safety  to his brother's, flesh. In this ho  failed; but his father, the blacksmith,  perceiving the utility of the idea that  the lad had been at work on, took it  up on his own account and eventually  turned out the.safety pin that is" in  use to-day iill over the world.

"This boy, strolling idly through  the streets���������he never had anything  to do��������� met another.  " lI wish,' he said, -that I had a  nickle. Then I'd buy a good five-  ceut cigar and go into the woods  and have a smoke.'  " '1 have a nickle,' said the  otlu'r boy.  "'Have you?' the, first cried,  eagerly.  'Then let's form a corporation.'  '' 'All right.    How is it done?'  "'I'll be the president.     You'll  be the stockholder.     The nickle  will be the capital and we'll invest  it in tobacco.'  ���������'The thing was agreed to and  tho president, taking the shareholder's five cents, bought a cigar  forth with. Then he led the w.iy  to the wood?. There he sat do-.i-c  on a log, lit up and began tOMinok*  skilfully.  '���������'lhe stockholder waited for bin  turn to come. But the cigar diminished.

"The president, knocking off the  ashen, shook his head.  " 'I don't see it,' he-aid.  " 'But what,' shouted the angry  stockholder, 'do I get for my capital?'

Breathes there a man with soul so dead,  Who never to himself has said:  "My trade oi" late is gettini; bad,  I'll try another ten-inch ad !"  If there be, go mark him well,  I-'or him no bank account shall swell,  No angels watch thc golden stair, '  To welcome home the millionaire.  The man who never asks for trade,  By local line, or add displayed,  Cares more for rest than worldly gain,  And patronage but gives him pain.  Tread lightly, friends: let no rude sound  Disturb his solitude profound,  Here let him lie in calm repose,  Unsought except by'men he owes.  And when he dies, go plant him deep  That nothing may disturb his sleep,  Where no rude clamor inay dispel  That quiet that he loved so welb .  And that the world may know its loss  Place on a stone a wreath of moss,  And on a stone above "Here lies  A fossil, who did not advertise."  The Argo Mining  and Tunnel Co.
