'   -  -_   . ^ -~  Life in Nelson. '.  An automobile now mingles in the  scenery of Nelson. '  T. Albert Mel'onald has employed one  of the best candy makers, of Chicago to  run his factory iu Xelson.  foe Goimerlcy waz seriously injured by  falling down a mountain at Arrowhead.  Dave  Carlev is  taking a  look  at the  roast in search of another location.    He  has retired from business in  Nelson with  1 a roll about 5io,ooo strong.  Tavloi Bishop has opeifl-d a Turkish  bath house next to the postoffice. It is  oue of the best establishments of its kind  in Canada, and complete in e\erv detail.  Visitors to Nelson should not miss it.  All the punting plant has been taken  out of the deceased Canadian ollice and  the building will now be used by W. R.  McCandlish as a pool and billiaid 100111.  Kight tables will be put in, making it the  finest institution of the kind in B. C.  Hill will sit in the high chair reading the  Tory papers with one eye /and watching  tlic'playeis with the other. Thus does  the click of the billiard ball supplant the  clank of the linotype.  Thc refusal of Mr. Deane to explain  why he sold The News in the face of an  approaching election, lost him the Liberal nomination for Kootenay. lie"considered that he had no business lo parade  his private affairs befoie even a Grit caucus. Rumor siys that six mouths ago  Deane gave Billy McMorris an option to  purchase the paper, never dreaming that  it would be taken up. Much to his surprise thc sale went through for $30,000,  the new owners paying Jio.ooo cash aud  assuming the mortgage for 520,000. The  News also absorbed the plants belonging  to Carlev and the Canadian office and  have put them iu junk storage. Thus  Deane gets out of the paper business with  his life and a loss of six > ears' time. All  the work,he h.is done for the Grits w forgotten in a minute and he is handed the  fro/en heart when his party could at  least lime shown their gratitude by giving him the unanimous nomination (or  Kootenay. Verily, for ways that are icy  and tucks that are snaky politics do  prevail.  . The Liberal party of Nelson was split  at the recent 'convention. Dr. Arthur  and tho church people wanted G. O.  Buchanan for a .sacrifice, but the other  wing clamored for Deane. Between the  walis of a divided house Smith Curtis  nided the convention lust.Thursday aud  captured the nomination, although he no  doubt would much rather that Deane  had been ehosim in his place. There was  a lively time at the convenlion, but no  lives were lost, although the ozone-suffered from heavy oracular conciliations,  and it looked at one time a safe bet that  the police and ambulance corps would  be iu requisition. Owing fo fear prevailing unionist the Grits the press was excluded, making it difficult to obtain any  but fragmentary evidence of the terrible  alliiir. If you* want an explosive episode just mix a little religion with politics and serve hotr When Twogood of  Saudou touched up Buchanan upon his  deep interest iu the Lord's Day Alliance  persecution the war broke out, and it wes  with great difficulty that R. W. Grigor  of Rossland could be restrained from  strewing his feelings all over the hall.  However, a hypnotic look from J. A.  Macdonald finally made hint let go, and  sweet peace again drew its breath. Smith  Curtis is receiving condolencesfrotn his  Tory friends, to which he Iuiiihji deaf ear.  On the first of July Greenwood  will liuve ono of the beM celebrations over "held in tho Boundary.  Already over .$2,500 has been subscribed. Thc race track is being  put in fii'ft-clii.������s shape. Prizes  will be given for horse-racing,  baseball, hose-tests, athletic sports,  business floats, etc. Two bands  will be in attendance aud furnish  music on both days of the celebration.  At the request of a number of  citizens the question of a celebration was brought  up  in   the city  council Monday evening and S200  appropriated.

At the Council meeting on  Monday night there were present  Mayor Bunting, Aldermen Wilson, Mortimer, Meyer, Fleming,  Sutherland and Gulley. In the  absence of the City Clerk. J. P.  Mef/eod, City Solicitor, acted as  clerk.  The minutes of the last meeting were read and approved.  After the reports of committees  the Council passed thcauuual bylaws, arranging for a temporary  loan to cover disbursements until  the taxes are received, fixing the  rate of taxation, and providing  for the appropriations.  ��������� The Temporary Loan By-Law  gave the Council power to borrow  from the Bank of Montreal $7,500  at an interest not exceeding.7  per cent.  The rate By-Law fixed.lhe ordinary rate at 10 milis, and the  special rate for inteiest, sinking-  fund and hospital, at 14 mills.  Thc appropriation By-Law embodied the estimates for the current year, and was as follows:  : Whereas, tlie revenue of the  Corporation of thc City of Greenwood, from all sources', is'estimated at $35,182.67 for the year  1 ������;0H, and it.is expedient:'to provide for the appropriation and expenditure thereof:  The Municipal'Couticilof I Incorporation of thc City of Greenwood enacts as follows:  Ontario and Quebec.  Back East, they had provincial  elections in Ontario and Quebec  Monday last. Ontario went very  much Ontario, and Quebec went  Quebec, but nob qnite. so^-much.  Both Tories and Grits in Greenwood appear to be satisfied with  the result, in at least one of those  provinces, although one.

It will not be a surprise lo those who  know him to hear that Smith Curtis is  again a candidate. Mr. Curtis appears  to have gone solely into the business of  running for ollice. About thirty yeara  ago there, was a ..man tunned Wilkes in  Owen .Sound, Ontario, whose only occupation was -a candidate.. Ite entered the  field every year as a caiidinate for some  municipal ollice. audaiimuilly went down  to defeat. The writer lost track of him  for about twenty years, but being in  Winnipeg in jliyj"he found Mr. Wilkes  still running for oflieu aud still being defeated. If alive, there should be a strong  bond of sympathy between him and Mr.  Curtis alter the federal campaign in  Kootenay. ._'_���������__' ;  Lew   Thompson is working a   likely  prospect near I'crgtison.  ,'^The better indiiceintuits you offer a- fish tliu more chances you  have to land him. flunks, Hies,  rods, recks und lines that willdo  the work well can bo -bought from  J.

It  came down  the yard here and ran into  the G. N. passenger train that was standing on the main line opposite the station.  What was left of tbe rear coach and the   ,  box   car  would   make   good   kindling.   ,  luckily the crew of the passenger were all '������������������  at dinner at the time and nobody was '"  about.

(Continued)  Lioavin&ihc rocks behind mc, I turn-  nunibcrs than elsewhere, and when 1  reached thee 1 iff, to my surprise and  delight, 1 found the ground literally  covered with nests. Indeed, it was a  matter of some cllfllculiy lo move with  out treading upon the eggs My delight  can scarcely be overestimated, for  here was a now food supply, and ono  that, while it would be unlikely to give  out for some weeks to come, would be  Infinitely preferable to the wretched  limpets upon which we had almost  made up our minds wo should have to  subsist. I has.cnod to fill my handkerchief and pockets with the spoil, and  when I could stuff in no more, continued my walk in a much easier, and  consequently more thankful, fiame of  mind.  As I tramped along, glancing- ever  and anon at the sea, the sordid details of my past life rose before me.  When I considered it, I felt almost  staggered by the change that had  come over mc. It seemed scarcely possible that so short a time could have  passed since I had plotted against  Bartrand and bad been so mlserablo  Id London In my present state of usefulness, I felt as if centuries had elapsed since then, instead of barely a  couple of weeks, as was really the  case. I wondered what would be said  hi England when the news got into  the papers, as I supposed it inevitably  must, that I had found a watery -grave  in the ill-fated Fiji Princess. "Would  there be anyone to regret me? I very  much doubted it. One hope occurred  to n:e. Perhaps, under cover of the  supposition that I was dead, I might  manage to outwit the law after all  and then an opportunity would be afforded me of beginning a new life in  a strange land���������the land that was the  home of Agnes Maybourne.  From a consideration of this Important chance I fell to thinking of the  girl herself. Could it have been for  the reason that I was ultimately to  save her life that Fate had raised her  face before my eyes to warn me that  miserable night in London? It looked  very much like it. If, however, that  was the beginning, what was the sequel to be? for surely it could not be  Intended that Fate, having brought me  so far, should suddenly abandon me at  the end. "Oh! if I were only cleanhanded like my fellow-men," I cried,  in miserable self-abasement, "how  happy might I not be!" For I must  mention here that in my own mind  I had quite come to the conclusion that  Agnes Maybourne entertained a liking  for me. And, God knows, I ou my side  had discovered that I loved her better  than" my "own "soul ."What was to'De  the end of it all? That the future alone  could decide.  The other side of the island���������that  Is to say, the side exactly opposite that  upon which we had landed���������was almost precipi'ous, and at the foot of  the cliffs, extending for some distance  out into the sea, were a number of  small Islets, upon which tho seas broke  with never-ceasing violence. I searched  that offing, as I had done the other, for  a sail, bur. was no better rewarded. As  soon as I had made certain that there  was nothing in sight, I turned upon  my tracks and hastened back to the  plateau as fast as I could go. For some  I could uo somecning to improve ic.  But, as far as 1 could see, I had done  everything that was possible by mortal man. Somehow, t'lough I valued  their eggs above gold, I had no fancy  for the sea-birds themselves. What I  wanted most was a contrivance with  which to capture some of the fish in  the bay. A line 1 could easily make  by unravelling the painter of the .lifeboat; thofjiook, however, beat me. A  hair-pin would have done admirably;  but, unfortunately, Miss Maybourne's  hair covered her shoulders just as she  had run up from her cabin on hearing  the first alarm An ordinary pin would  have been invaluable; but among tho  three of us wo could not muster even  ono.  Just as daylight broke, however, 1  solved  my difnculty  in  the  simplest  tick-  had  not  n iiiuught'of it sooner. In my tie  I wore a long gold pin, with an escutcheon top, which had been given  me in Australia years before The remembrance of it. no sooner came Into  my mind than I had whipped it out  of "the tie, and had bent the point into  a fair-sized hook. This done, I rose  from my couch between the rocks, and  having replenished tho fire, which still  showed a red glow, hastened down tho  hill side to where the boat layaipon  the sands. From the painter I extracted sufficient strands to make a lino  some thirty feet long, and to thi3 I  attached my hook. I very much doubt  if a fish were ever honored before with  so grand a hook.  Just as tho sun's first rays were  shooting up beyond the placid sea line,  and the sea and heavens were fast  changing from a pure pearl grey to  every known color of the rainbow, I  pushed the boat into tho water, and  rowed out for half a mile or so. Then,  having baited my hook with mussel, I  threw it overboard, and seating myself,-lino in hand, in the stern, awaited  results. I looked at the island, showing so clear and rugged in tho bright  morning light, and thought of Miss  Maybourne and the sick child. If the  tiuth must be confessed, I believe I  was happier then, even in such straits  and upon so inhospitable a shore, than  I had over been before. When I  thought of Bartrand, as I had last seen  him, lying stretched out in the snow  in that quiet street, and remembered  my struggle with Nikola in Golden  Square, my walk through sleeping London to Surbiton. and my journey to  Southampton, it all seemed like some  horrible dream, the effects of which I  was at last beginning to rid myself. It  was hard to believe that I had really  gone through it all; that I, the man  now fishing so quietly in this boat, in  whom Miss Maybourne believed so  much, was in reality Gilbert' Penne-  thorne, the perpetrator of one of the  mysterious murders which had entirely baffled the ingenuity of the London  police. I could not help wondering  what she would say if anyone should  tell her the true history of the man In  whom she placed such implicit confidence. Would she credit it or not?  While I was thinking of this, I felt  a sharp tug upon my line, and when  I drew it in, I found, to my delight, a  nice fish impaled upon theh ook. Having released him and placed him securely at the bottom of the boat, I did  not lose a moment in throwing the  line overboard aga'-n. Wihin a quarter  re was incieea a scene to remeiriUef,  and ilie picture of it, as I saw it then,  rises before me now as clearly as if  it were but yosterdav.  To right and left of the points which  sheltered the bay, the deep green of  the sea was changed to creaming froth,  where tho surf caught the rocks; but  'n the little indentation which we had  made our home the wavelets rippled  on the sand with the .softest rhythm  possible. The sky was cloudless, the  air warmer than It had been for days  past. The glow of sunset imparted to  the western cliffs a peculiar shade of  pink, the beauty of which was accentuated by the deep shadows cast by  the beetling crags. On tho hillside,  directly opposite where my boat was  anchored, 1 could see the plateau, and  on it my fire burning brightly. I  thought of thc bravo woman nursing  ihe sick child in the cave, and of the  difference she had made In my lonely  life.  "Oh, God!" I cried, "if only You had  let me see the chance that was to be  mine some day, how easy it would  have been for mo to have ordered Nikola and his temptation to stand bo-  hind me. Now I see my happiness too  late, and am consequently undone for  ever."  As I thought of that sinister man  and the influence ho had exercised  upon my life, I felt a thrill of horror  pass over me. It seemed dreadful to  think that he was s'ill at .large, unsuspected, and in all probability working some sort of evil on another unfortunate individual.  In my mind's eye I could see again  that cold, impassive face, with its  snake-like eyes, and hear that in-  ���������sinuating voice u tering once more  that terrible temptation. Surely! 1  thought, the dread enemy of mankind  must he just such another as Dr-  Nikola.  When the sun had disappeared be  low tho sea line, the color of the  ocean had changed from all the dazz  ling lints of the king-opal to a sombre  coal-black hue, and myriads of stars  were beginning to make their appearance in the sky, I turned my boat's  head, and pulled towards the shore  again. A great melancholy had settled  upon me, a vague sense"of some impending catastio'.ihe, of which, try  how I would, I found I could not rid  myself.  On reaching the plateau, T made my  way to the save and looked in. I discovered Miss Maybourne kneeling beside the child on the grass. As soon its  she saw me she rose and led me out  into the open.'  "Mr. Wrexford," she said, "the end  is quite close now, I feel sure. Tho  poor little thing is growing weaker  every moment.

But when I reached the beach  below the plateau and looked up, to  see the fire still burning brightly and  Miss Maybourne moving about between it and the cave, I was reassured.  The tide by this time had gone out,  and the lifeboat lay high and dry upon  the beach. Before rejoining my companions I made my way towards her.  To roll her over into her proper position was only a matter of small diffi-  " culty now that the water was out of  her, and once this was accomplished I  was able to satisfy myself as to her  condition. As far as I could gather,  there was nothing amiss with her,  even her oars lay fastened to the  thwarts as usual. How she could have  got into the water was a mystery 1  <yiuld not solve for-the life of me. 1  examined her most carefully, and having done so, found some pieces" of  wood to act as;- rollers, and dragged  her up the beach till I had. got her  well above high water mark. After  that I picked up my parcel of eggs  and climbed the hill to the plateau,  It was now well on into the afternoon,  and I had still much to do before  nightfall. V  When I showed Miss Maybourne the  eggs I had found, she expressed her  great satisfaction, and we immediatel;  cooked a couple to be ready against  the little sufferer's waking.  The rest of the afternoon, was spent  In carrying drift wood from the beach  to the plateau; for I had determined  to keep a good flare burning all night,  In case any ships might happen to  pass, and think it worth their while  to stand off and on till daylight should  show them the reason of it. When I  had stacked It ready to my hand here  was yet another supply of grass to be  , cut, with which to improve the bed-  places In the cave. Then my own couch  had to be prepared somewhere within  call. After which there was the evening meal to cook. By the time this wai  done, darkness had fallen, and our  first night on the Island had commenced.  When I bade Miss Maybourne "good  night" she was kind enough to express  her thanks a second time for the  trouble I had taken. As if the better  to give point to her -gratitude, she held  out her hand to me. I took It and raised  It to my lips. She did not attempt to  stop me,, and then, with another "good  night," she passed Into the cave, and  I was left alone.  For hours I sat watching my blaze  nnd listening to the rumbling of the  surf upon the shore. The night was as  otlll as a night could well be. Not even  a breath of wind, was stirring. When I  laid myself down In my corner between the rocks near the cave's mouth,  nnd fell asleep, It was to dream of  Agnes Maybourno nnd the happiness  that might have been mine but for the  one dread thing which had made it  quite impossible.  CHAPTER VIII.  Long before daylight I was awako,  thinking of our unenylablo position,  Aiid-wiBkJnjr for tho ladles' sake that  or an nourTnau'ianaea��������� nve-spieuaia  fellows, iind was as pleased with my  success as if 1 had just been created  Lord .Chancellor of England. To-day,  at any rate, I told myself, Miss May-  bouine and the little gir.1 should have  a nice breakfast.-  Arriving at the beach I sprang out,  and, using the same means as before,  drew my boat up out of reach of the  tide. Then, taking my prizes with me,  I made my way up (ho hill-side to the  plateau. Just as I reached it, Miss  Maybourne made her appearance from  the cave and came towards me.  "Look!" I cried, holding up the fish  as I spoke, "Are these not beauties?"  "They ai^ indeed splendid," she answered. "Bat how did you manage to  obtain them? I thought you said last  night that you could think of no way of  making a hook?"  "So I did. But since then I have remembered the gold pin I wore'in my  tic. I found that it made a most excellent hook, and with its assistance I  managed to get hold of these gentlemen. But, in my triumph, I am forgetting to enquire how'you and your little  friend are this morning. You were fairly comfortable in the cave, I hope?"  "Quite comfortable, thank you," she  answered, gravely. "But poor little  Esther is no better this morning. In  fact, if anything, I fancy she is worse.  She was delirious for some time in the  night, and now she is in a comatose  condition that frightens me more than  her former restlessness. It'goes to my  heart to see her in this state."  "Is there nothing we can do for her,  I wonder?" I said as I prepared my  fish for the fire.  "I fear we are powerless," replied  Miss Maybourne. "rne only, thing I  can imagine to be the matter with her  is that she must have been struck by  something when we were sucked under by the sinking ship. She complains  continually of pains in her head."  "In that case, I fear there is nothing  for it but to wait patiently for some  ship, with a doctor on board, to come  in sight and take us off."  "In the meantime, she may die. Oh,  poor little Esther! Mr. Wrexford, this  helplessness is too terrible."  What could I say to comfort her?  In my own mind I saw no hope. Unless  a vessel hove In sight, and she chanced to carry a doctor, the doctor must  inevitably die. As soon as the breakfast was cooked, I went Into the cave  and looked at her. I found the little  ��������� hing stretched upon the grass I had  thrown down for a bed. She was unconscious, as Miss Maybourne had  said, and was breathing heavily. Her  pulse was almost unnoticeable, and occasionally she moaned a little, as If in  pain. It was a sight that would have  touched the mo3t callous of men, and  in-spite of that one sinister episode in  my career, I was far from being such  a Nero.  At midday there was no change perceptible In her condition. By the middle of the afternoon she was worse.  Miss Maybourne and myself took It in  turns to watch by her side; In the intervals, we climbed the lillL and scanned the offing for a sail. Our vigilance,  however, was never rewarded���������the  sea was as devoid of ships as our future seemed of hope.  After a day which had seemed an  eternity, the second night of our captivity on the Island came round. A  more exquisite evening could scarcoly  be Imagined. I had been watching by  the sick child's side tho greater part  of the afternoon, and feeling that, if I  remained on shore, Miss Maybourno  would discover how loW;splrlted I was,  I took tho boat and rowed out Into  tho bay, to try and obtain some fish  for our supper, Tlhs was not a matter  of much difficulty, and In loss than a  quartor of an hour I had hauled on  board more than wo could possibly  havo eaten in threo meals When I  bad flnlshod, I sat In my boat watch-  -jn-' the' uuusiat eifacta uunu the island.  to think that she must die because  we have not the means lo save her."  1 did my best to comfort her, but it  was some time before I achieved any  sort of success. When she had in a  measure recovered her composure. I  accompanied her back to the cave and  examined the little suffcrer,for myself.'  A.las! one glance showed me how very  cloSe the end was. Already the child's  face and hands were cold and clammy,  her respiration was gradually becoming more and more difficult. She was  still unconscious, and once I almost  thought she was dead.  All through that dreadful night she  lingered on. Miss Maybourne remained with her until close upon midnight,  when_I_relie.ved_her. Sliortly_bofore-  sunrise I went to the mouth of the  cave and looked out. The stars were  almost gone from ihe sky. and the  world was very still. When I returned, I thought the child had suddenly  grown strangely quiet, aud knelt down  to examine her. The first grey shafts  of dawn showed me that at last the  end had come. Death had claimed his  victim. Henceforth we need feel no  mere concern for poor little Esther���������  her suffering were over. She had gone  to join her mother and the little ones  who had lost their .lives two days before. Having convinced myself that  what I imagined was correct, I reverently closed the little eyes and crossed  the frail hands upon her breast, and  then \vent out into the fresh air. The  sun was in the act of making his appearance above the peak, and all our  11.tie world was bathed in his glory. I  looked across to the place between  the rocks'wh^re'I usually slept, and  saw Miss Maybourne rising from her  rest. My presence outside the cave  must have told her my news, for she  came swiftly across to where I stood.  "It is all over," she said, very quietly. "I can see by your face that the  end has come."  I nodded. For the life of me, I could  not have spoken just then. The sight  of that agonized face before me and  the thought of the dead child lying in  the cave behind me deprived me of  speech entirely. Miss Maybourne  noticed my condition,:and simply said,  "Take me to her." I did as she commanded, and together we went bad-  to the chamber of death. When we  reached It, my companion stood for a  few moments looking at the peaceful  little figure on the couch oi grass, and  then kne.lt down beside it. I followed  her example. Then, holding my hand  in hers, she prayed for the child from  whose body the soul had just departed; then for ourselves still left upon  the island. When she had finished, wc-  rose, and, after a final glance at our  dead companion, went out into the  open air again.  By this time I had got so much in:o  the habit of searching the sea for  ships that I did it almost unconscious  ly. As I passed the cave I glanced out  across the waste of water. Then I  stood s'ill, hardly able to believe the  evidence of my eyes. There, fast rising above the horizon, were the sails  of a full-rlggcd ship. Miss Maybourne  saw them as soon as I did, and together we Btrol staring at the vessel  with all our eyes. My companion was  the first to speak.    r  "Do you think she will come near  enough to see us?" she cried, in a  voice I hardly recognized, so agLated  was It.  "She must be made to see us," I answered, fiercely. "Come what may, she  must, not pass us."  "What are you going to do? How  are you going to prevent it? Tell me,  and let mc help you if I can."  A notion had seized me, and I determined to put it Into practice wi.hout  an Instant's delay.  "Let us collect all the wood we can  find and then make a large bonfire.  When that has been done, we must  .launch tho boat and pair out to intercept her. If she sees the flare she will  make "her way here, and If she does  not, we may be able to catch her tie-  fore she gets out .of.our reach. Thus  in. either case wa shall be saved.

BANISH PIMPLES
AND ERUPTIONS
Everyone Needs a Tonic in Spring
to Purify and Build Up the
Blood.
If you want new health and
stiength in spring you must build up
your .blood with 'a tonic medicine!
Indoor life during the long winter
months ' is responsible for the de-
'pressed condition aiid" feeling of constant .tiredness which affects so many
people every spring. . This condition
means, that the blood is impure and
watery. ,That is what causes pimples
and unsightly eruptions ' in some;
others have twinges'- of 'rheumatism,
or tho sharp, stabbing pains of' neuralgia.' Poor appetite, frequent headaches, and a desire.to avoid exertion
is also duo to bad blood. Any or all
of-these troubles can bo banished by
the fair use of such a tonic "medicine
as Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Every
dose of this medicine helps to make
new, rich, red blood, which drives
out impurities, stimulates every organ, strengthens every nerve, and
brings a feeling of new health and
new energy to weak, tired out, ailing
men and women. Here is proof that
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills is the greatest of all spring medicines. Mr. Henry Baker, Chipman, N. B,, says:���
"Last spring 1 was so weak and miserable that I could hardly drag myself- about. My appetite was poor, 1
did not sleep well, and dreaded work.
$Ly blood was in a terrible condition,
which-caused pimples and small boils
to break out all over me. These
would itch and pain and caused me
much trouble. 1 tried several medicines but without the least benefit,
when one clay a friend asked mo why
1 did not try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Pie spoke so highly of this medicine
that I decided to take his advice-and
give the pills a trial.' I got a half
dozen boxes and the result was that
by the time they were finished I felt
, like  an    altogether ��� different    man.
' They purified my blood, built up my
whole system, and I have not had a
pimple on my flesh,' not a sick day
since. For this reason I can highly
recommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
as a blood builder and purifier."

���nothing. It's all In taking care of

"And if Mrs. Bowser expires of her

"Then she will have to expire. It's
only u question of time, anyhow, when

Fay:
"Of course you don't feel any better?"

observed Mr. Bowser after glaring at
the determined face before'hhu.
"Not wulle I am here, Saojuel���not

Sarah l.s down with a headache, the

Mr. Bowser looked at her for thirty
seconds with mutiny In his eye and
then went slowly downstairs a'nd turned housewife, When he had got a little dinner together he culled her down,
and as she sat at the table be said:
"We.might just as well settle this

"It Is settled," she replied.
"You expect to come here nnd run

"I do."
"Aud order me about as If I was

"Never!   I will leave the coop first!"
"Could you leave it Iu ten minutes?"
"Yes, in nine. By the great horn

"Samuel, you can fly the coop," said
the old'lady as she held up her hand
to check further words.
"I'll be hanged if I don't!"
Rushed Out of the House.
And he rushed upstairs and put on
his hat and overcoat/and was out of
the house like a caution ball. It was a
cold, windy night, with snow falling
occasionally, and he hadn't got a hundred feet outside the gate when he
wished himself back In the ."coop." He
had to walk to keep warm. He began
going arouud the block. On his first
round two loafers met him and elbowed him into a snowdrift. On the second a policeman stopped him and sakl
he should keep an eye on him. On the
third he was offered 10 cents to clean
off a man's sidewalk, and n boy hit
him In the ear ..with a chunk of lee.
When he had arrived opposite his gate
on his fourth'round, the mother-in-law
appeared In the door and beckoned and
called:
"Samuel, I want you to come In."
"What for?" be' sulkily asked.
"Because it's bedtime, and I am" going to shut up tbe house. Come right
aloug."
And Mr. Bowser disappeared Into
the house and left the butcher's boy
on the opposite side of the street to
utter a "Whew!" aud add:

Medical 'authorities place colds as

It is customary to consider the
lungs alone in -danger from colds.
This is a mistake.
The kidneys are quite as susceptible and the effect is to congest and
clog these' filtering organs until the
whole system is poisoned and there
comes backaches, lumbago, aching
head, painful limbs and urinary derangements.

By reason of their diiect and combined action of kidneys, liver and bowels they cleanse the system, purify

And Each  and  Ever/ Member Therefore Tried to Tell the Cause.
The house was cold. There was no
mistaking that fact.
If the rest of the family had not ascertained the state of ��� affairs from
their own feelings they could easily
have observed it from the way father
stormed around. Every ten,or fifteen
minutes he went down tho cellar and
swore at the furnace, after which he
would return and lecture the family.
The furnace didn't seem to mind it,
but tbe family did,-and at length he
became unbearable. The family became
panic stricken. They, feared that father might go crazy and commit suicide
or something else-equally awful.
"I-tbink something must bo tbe matter with the furnace," ventured mother.      ,t    ���
"That's just like a woman!" yelled
father. "How in tbe name of Bill Taft
could anything be the ^matter with the
furnace when I just spent ?7.80 to
have it'fixed?"
Mother did not reply, but rushed upstairs to put her money and jewels in
her stocking.
"I think," said sister, who was prominent In the local William Morris arts-
graft society, "that the trouble comes
from not having enough handmade
mission furniture In the house. There
Is so much warmth about mission furniture." '
"Oh, pshaw!" said brother, who had
studied chemistry In the local university. "The trouble Is with the coal. It
doesn't contain enough calories or units
of heat per unit of weight."
"Bosh!" said Aunt Betsy, who was a
bit old fashioned.. !'The trouble Is with
the house. The way they build them
nowadays It is Impossible for them to
be anything else but cold."
"I can't understand it," said father.
"It was all right six months ago."
"It was summer then," suggested the
baby with the gentle stress of babyhood.
Father was about to hurl a bootjack
at baby when his eye struck the thermometer. Simultaneously his mind
struck an idea with fearful force.
For a moment he was thoughtful.
Father, be it said, admitted without
argument that be was the only shnon
pure, ne plus ultra logician of the
household. It took him but a moment
to analyze his new idea. Why hadn't
he thought of it before? Why, to be
sure, the thermometer was the cause,
for was not the house cold every time
the thermometer registered at a low
figure? And was not the thermometer
now registered at a low figure? Why,
of course! Certainly! How stupid!
Whereupon he threw the thermometer out of the window, put on bis coat
and went to the club confident that
henceforward everything would be all
right.���Puck.

Worm Secretes Camphor.
Professor Cook of Washington reports the surprising discovery of camphor as an animal secretion. The animal concerned is a myriapod, resembling a worm or small slug and scientifically. known as Polyzonlum rosal-
bum. It lives In the humus of moist,
undisturbed forests. When handled It
gives off a very distinct odor of camphor and ejects a milky fluid which
possesses the smell, flavor and taste
of ordinary camphor. Professor Cook
thinks that the camphor is secreted
Instead of the prusslc or hydrocyanic
acid found In other myrlapods as a
means of defense.
The Real Need.
"They say that laziness is caused by
a germ. What a fine thing it would be
If we could And something to kill the

A   Regiment's   Reputation.
A certain French monarch was the
cause of an exhibition of humor oh -
the part of an officer belonging to the ���
famous Regiment of Orleans. He was
sent to the court with certain intelligence, and, in accordance with the
custom which prevailed then, lie asked that the Cross of St. Louis should
be given to him.
"But you arc very young to have
the Cross of St. Louis," said the king.
"Ah, sire," said the officer, with a
twinkle in his eye, "we do not livo
long in your Regiment of Orleans."

It is a,  significant ,fact  that all  the men so far charged with throwing bombs, destroying property and  endangering life, in the Cleveland  street-ear   strike   are    foreigners.  Siime of them are scarcely  able io  speiik English, all of them speak it  imperfectly,   and   most   of   them  were born and reared in  Southern  Europe.    And   it is  this  element  which is creating a-reign  of terror  in the United Slates   from the Atlantic to the Pacific.    Occasionally  we   hear   of an   Englishman,   an  Frishman, or a Scotchman showing  a reckless disregcrd  of the  rights  of society  and  an   indifference to  life, but such instances only bring  out in clearer  relief the genius of  the  people  which is  for law and  order and  common  justice  to all.  It is the same with the Scandinavian   people, the  German  and  the  German   and  the   French,   all  of  whom make good  settlers and excellent citizens.  And is it  not  singular'that the  great corporations  of the republic  which  have had  so much experience with the Southern   European,  the bomb thrower and the incendiary, should apparently prefer  him  us a worker to the respectable arti-  zan or laborer from   Great Britain  or    the    countries    of    Northern  Europe?   The immense number of  these undesirable peoples which is  now   to  bo   found in   the  United  Stales   has   been     unquestionably  heen introduced by the great trusts.  And this very  class  is still being  brought in by the corporations and  enniloyedby them in preference to  peaceful" and 'industrious  'immigrants.
