"Be   you   from   Montana,   miss?"   he  asked.  Missoula nodded.  "I hail from west Texas myself," the  policeman hastened to explain, "but 1  reckou there's much of a sameness  about them both."  Missoula Ann seized his hand joyfully. "I been watching you other  days. I jest knowed you was from the  west the way you sat your horse."  By this time Teddy was safely ensconced od top of Jim Crow. "It does  seem as if most of the folks here made  riding a hard matter," the policeman  said reflectively. "And it's worse for  the horse than it Is for them. Why.  the ladies have the poor beasts cinched up so tight they can't draw a full  breath. Wish they'd just try it on a  broncho. There'd be some tall bucking."  And he laughed.  Missoula joined in. "I believe I could  show them a thing or two myself," she  said proudly, "even if I aint's got one  of them swell riding skirts. But I "jest  better not be saying too much about  Jt," she added sadly. "I might hev forgot, it's so long since I was od a horse.  Mr. Barker, he got one of those auto-  - mobiles, but I can't abide the creature."  The tall policeman agreed. "Just give  me a good horse." he declared, "and a  clear road, and I'd ride and ride to"���������  "Cl'ar out to the west," the girl interrupted eagerly. There was a wistful look In her eyes.  "Be you long from there, miss?" he  asked respectfully.  "Only since last fall, but it seems an  age." Missoula Ann said, with a sigh.  "You see. Mr. Barker, he's the biggest  man out our way. lie rules jest about  everything but his wife, and she rules  him. So when she took It into her  head to cum to New York fer the winter we all had to cum. I cum on 'count  of Teddy. Seems as if he can't get  along without me. I've hed the care of  him ever since he was born." She  smiled up at the child affectionately.  "I'm not paying but what 1 was tickled  over the idea. They'd been telling rae  all sorts of foolishness about the city.  But It's not a bit like what I expected.  I'erhaps the fault lies in me, but I feel  sort of smothered ail the time. It's bad  enough on the street, with people  pushing of you out of their way, but  indoors it's worse. Things are so  awful dear here thnt Mr. Barker, for  al! lie owns 'bout a whole section out  our way, can't hev a whole house to  bisself. It's worse than the boys' quarters at a roundup the way folks crowd  together. But you must excuse me  fer saying so much," she broke off Jn  conclusion as she looked up aud met  hla dark eyes flxed admiringly upon  hor. "Only It's so long since 1 had the  chance to free my mind. You're mighty  "ttood to Usteu. But come. Teddy; it's  time we were making for home."  Teddy did not agree, but the tall policeman cut short his remarks by lifting him down In a peremptory fash-  Ion. "I'ui much obliged to you. miss,"  he said gratefully. "It's beeD as good  ns seeing oue of the boys. But perhaps you'll be coming this way again  tomorrow?" lie asked insinuatingly.  Missoula Ann thought that perhaps  she might. Teddy was quite sure that  he would' be ready for auother ride.  The tn 11 policeman leaped lightly into  his saddle, and she watched hltu with  n thrill of pride. He was certainly  quite Imposing In his blue uniform  ,wlth Ihe brass buttons, and his friend-  'flhlp was n thing to be desired. And  then be came from the west! He  could sympathize with her longing 'for  that faraway land. Yes, Missoula was  Bure to come that way tomorrow.  He was waiting for them on the next  afternoon, and Teddy was swung up  on tbe saddle in a jiffy. But now It  was tbe big policeman who talked,  while Missoula listened In shy silence.  His namo was Jones. "They used to  call me 'Shorty' down In tho Panhandle because I was so tall," be explained, wltb a laugh. "No, they don't do It  here," In answer to her questioning  look. "It wouldn't be healthy for  them. The men od tbo forco call me  Jim.   1 haven't an/ pals up here."  Jim had come to New York with  some full blood cattle. But the attractions of the big city proved too,much  for him, and after a debauch of several days he had come to himself only  to find that the rest of the crew had  gone back, and he was left aloue,  adrift. There had been some hard  days.- Jim spoke of them hesitatingly  and with a shamed flush on bis tanned  cheek.  "But then I got on the force���������on account of my riding���������and I've been on  over a year. I can't complain of the  pay. and the work's light enough. But  1 get such longing for the sun shining  in a perfect blue sky and my pony  picking his way among the holes of a  dog town���������the little beggars sitting up  nnd scolding at you as -bold ns you  please nnd then scrambling down  through the mesquite bushes into a  water hole���������and letting him drink as  much as he pleases nnd then riding on  till the sun sets ns it never does up  here, bunds of light plnylng right  across the sky nnd a purple glow over  everything. Well, when I get to thinking of nil that I get unensy-llke nnd  tired of nil this crowding. Some One  morning the feeling will be extra  strong, and then"���������ho laughed���������"the  forco will be losing one of Its ornaments."  Missoula was looking up eagerly.  Her eyes were as blue as tbe Texas  sky of which he spoke and wide with  longing. "You will be going back,  too.-somo day, Miss Missoula," be said  softly.  She caught her breath sharply, like  one suddenly waked from a dream.  "Yes," she said dispiritedly. "I s'pose  so���������when Mis' Barker's rendy to go."  The three met often after thnt Teddy had come to look on Jim Crow as  one of his possessions, while Missoula  and his master had become the best of  friends, and meanwhile a tardy spring  was breathing new life into the half  tlniwed slopes of the park. Timid  grass blndes nppeared.  The afternoon sun shone down warmly and showed Missoula engaged in restraining Teddy from picking a spray  of the enticing "burning bush." The  | tall policeman came up during the altercation. As they walked on together  he preserved an unwonted silence.  "Spring's about here," Missoula observed nt last. "I've been thinking how  the prairie must-look by now���������jest one  big flower bed."  Jim looked off across the treetops  with eyes unseeing of their delicate  veil of leaves. "I've been thinking,  4oo," he said, "and I just can't stand  tbe city nny longer. I'm going back  west."   Missoula's face paled.  "I'd have gone long ago if it hndn't  been for you. Missouln." He looked  down now and as he saw her agitation went on eagerly: "I won't go now  unless you will go too. I've been saving money, and I've written out, so  there's a position ready. Won't you  go, Missoula?"  Missoula's face blushed a rosy red,  but sue, met his ardeDt gaze frankly.  "Yes, I'll go. Jim," she said. "I trust  you. Teddy's getting so old dow he  won't be missing me. And, oh, Jim,  we'll be going back to tbe west together!" There was a choke in her  ���������voice.  Jim drew her to him, and it was  well that the path was deserted or observers might have been scandalized  by the spectacle of one of tbe force  who had quite forgotten his dignity.

Pellegrini was an artist-with an exceedingly liberal vocabulary, upon  which "he would draw freely for the  edification of the Beefsteak club, of  which he was -a member. There wa������  one fellow member of the club, says  J. C. Carr in a book called "Some  Eminent Victorians," who was wont  to entertain the table with little Impromptu sketches and designs, which  he executed with a certain degree of  facility.  This innocent display of artistic  power offended Pellegrini, who, possibly moved by a measure of jealousy  that any one should encroach upon his  special province, insisted, with some  vehemence, that a club was not the  place for such exercises.  "I like the boy," he said to me one  evening, "and when he talk I listen,  but 'tis pity he draw."  It was only a few evenings later  that I entered the room and found the  young friend who had been the subject of Pellegrini's rebuke absorbing  the entire conformation of the crowded  table. Pellegrini was present, and I  could see that he was growing restive  under the artist's unceasing flow of  conversation.  In a momentary pause he turned to  me and In nn audible whisper delivered this laconic judgment:  "Joe, I 'ave made big mistake. '"./'Is  better he draw."  A timber merchant was sitting in his  oflice one day musing sadly over the  general depression in the wood trade,  when a quiet-looking young man  entered.  "Do you sell beechwood?" asked the  stranger.  "Yes, sir," replied the merchant,  rising with alarcitv, and hoping devoutly to book a large order. "We  can supply any-quantity on the shortest notice, either in the log or the  plank."  "Oh, I don't want so much-as that,"  said the youth, shifting his feet uneasily. "I just want a bit for a fiddle  bridge."���������Tit-Hits.  English Soldiers Who Have-Risen in  Foreign Armies.  The recent news of the appointment  of Sergeant Baldwin to the post of  cavalry instructor to the Emperor of  Morocco, at a salary of something  like ������1,500 a year, shows that the age  of military romance is not yet dead.  It. is not so easy nowadays for the  friendless and penniless soldier in oui  army to rise to a major-generalship,  as did the late Sir Hector Macdonahl,  Luke O'Connor, V.C., W. McBean,  V.C'.and others; but there are, nevertheless, two General Officers still  alive who were once private soldiers,  namely, Sir Harry Finn, late Inspector-General of the Australian Forces,  and Gilbert Hamilton. John Shipp, a  poor . boy and the son of a private,  achieved the unique record of twice  winning a commission from the ranks!  in our Army.  It is in foreign armies, however,  tlmt our talented Tommies reap the  richest rewards. Take the case of  the Karl of Stirling, who, overwhelmed with debt, emigrated to America,  enlisted as a private, and rose to be a  brigadier-general. By cleverly availing himself of the fluctuating conditions of the currency he was ultimately able to pay off a debt of ������80,-  000 with but ������1,000 in gold and silver! His case recalls that of one of  the Earls of Lindsay, who had been  a sergeant in our Army, ancl was the  son of a private soldier!  Probably no British soldier achieved mow success overseas than Trooper  Ward, of the Yorkshire Yeomanry.  He was deputed to take some horses  to the Prince of Parma (a principality in the kingdom of Italy), and his  scathing criticism of the Prince's stables led to his being appointed'the  hitter's personal groom and attendant  at a high salary. His sound sense  was so much appreciated that he was  consulted on every occasion, given  high ' military rank, aiid presented  with jewelled swords and other honors.  He thoroughly reformed the army in  a way- that raised the envy of neighboring States, was sent to Vienna as  Ambassador, and while there saved  his country  a war with Austria.  The' ex-trooper finally revisited  England as baron and commander-in-  chief of the army of Parma, and was  received by Lord Palmerston, who  called him "one of the' most remarkable men of the age." On his return  he found that his Royal patron had  been murdered, and he was himself  forced to fly for his life to Austria,  where he died.  It was ordained that another British privbte-r James Hastie���������should  carry through similar important reforms in a foreign land. He accompanied his regiment, the 56th, to  Mauritius in "Waterloo year," when  he held the rank of sergeant. His  bravery there���������not fighting, but extinguishing a fire���������earned him a commission, and he entered the Governor's service. Shortly afterwards Ra-  dnma, King of Madagascar, sent two  of his sons to Mauritius to learn English, ancl the ex-private was appoint-  'ed their tutor. Consequently, he returned with them to Madagascar, be-  'canre British Resident there, and'gained ��������� enormous influence, his reforms  including the abolition of the export  slave trade. He also reorganized the  army on the .European model, and  his death was made the occasion for  a great demonstration by the Madagascar, the King writing of him:  "Many may boast much,' but none  will do as much as he has done."-  ALL OVER THE WQKLD  thousands of housewives  use Sunlight Soap In preference to any other, because  it cleanses the clothes more  thoroughly, and at half the  cost without injury to  . hands or fabric.

Jimmy began to chuckle. He was  about to explain to the clergyman bis  mistake when suddenly he squared bis  .shoulders, looked quickly at Nell and  then faced his interlocutor resolutely.-  And almost before the girl .was aware  of what was happening Jimmy "bad  given the requested information and  the clergyman had* tripped out to secure the licenses nest door.  ��������� "Jimmy!" she gasped as-tbp door  dosed ' behind tbe retreating ".parson. ���������  "Jimmy!

"Nell, dear, I've waited so long.-  and we've missed' Mabel and Nixon  anyway, and this la such a bully clergyman���������a real gentleman'of the' old'  school."  "If you will be good enough to stand  before me here." said the clergyman  when he came back. ^  "Come!" said Jimmy'gently,, arid the  girl nrose.

"Mnb'ei has. gone  with that young ��������� upstart Nixon���������  gone���������gone���������eloped! Do you understand? That's why I sent for you. I'd  go with you myself If riding in the  wind didn't bring on my asthma' so.  I'd go with you and make it hot for  him. I swear I would. As It Is you'll  have to* take Nell. "She'll know what  to do. no, Nell, Nell!" be called sun-  , denly through'the open front door  "Here's Jimmy iu the racer. Hurry-  up!   You haven't a minute to lose!"  Light footsteps pattered on the  staire. On to the verunda came Nell  - Thornton. '  ' "They've gone across tbe state Hue  to Northville, of course," the colonel  declared. "You can get 'em if yon  hurry.-. Let out that car, Jimmy. Dou't  let 'em make it- ahead of you."  -' Jimmy-opened up the car, and down  the drive they went at a reckless pace,  swung into the road and went whirling toward Northville, leaving In their  wake a cloud of dust that rose-even  above the treetops.  Once they reached a straight stretch  of. road Brlce leaned toward the girl  .beside him. - - '-  "We'll-overtake 'em if they-haven't  too much of a start," he declared.  "How long have they been goneV"  "Half an bour," she answered.  "Then we've got 'em." said be en-"  couragingly. ' "Of course we've got to  head this thing off."  "Of course," she agreed, but some-  bow Jimmy was Impressed with the  idea that she was not over-enthusiastic  about it  "I almost wish we could let 'em go,"  said he. "She's desperately in love  with him,'and Nixon isn't a half bad  chap."       ."   ���������  "That's Impossible," said she. "She's  nothing but a child. 1 almost think if  she had been firm with papa he would  have consented, but to try to take the  matter in her own hands this way has  sent him Into a frightful rage."

Jimmy swung the car into the left  band branch of the road and gave it  full speed again.  "What are you going to do when  you catch them 7" he asked.  "I shall be very Arm, and you must  back me up."  "All right," he agreed cheerfully.  "Of course I will; but, honestly, Nell. 1  hate like fury to butt In."  "You're not going to desert me at  the critical moment, are you?" she  questioned anxiously.  "Sure I'm not!' Watch me," he  laughed.  The soft May dusk was coming on.  Tbey shot past houses in which the  lights were already beginning to twinkle.  "Seems to me we ought to be getting a squint at them pretty soon,"  said be.  "There's a car ahead." she cried suddenly. "Hurry���������ob. hurry!"  ���������The road car seemed fairly to lift  itself from the" ground. They sped up  to tbe car ahead, but its occupauts  were a middle aged couple who looked  up In mild reproof as they tore past.  Jimmy Brlce laughed. "Foiled again!"  he mocked. "I believe they're going  to make it after all."  "They mustn't-they mustn't," said  the girl.   "Cnu't we go any faster?" '  Jimmy shook his bend. "This Is her  best speed," he declared.  Now they had reached the outskirts  of Northville. .With honking horn and  undiminished speed they tore along the  elm lined streets.  "They've got here ahead of-us, all  right," said Jimmy. "Our only hope is  to Interrupt the ceremony before It's  too late. Where'll they go? Have you  any idea?"-  "The parsonage of the brick church."  the girl explained. "That Is where all  such couples head for, I believe."  They turned a corner. Just ahead  was a little church, nestling lieuoath  giant elms, and beside the church was  a snug little parsonage.  Thp car came to a stop. Jimmy and  the girl both leaped out and ran up the  path to belabor tbe polished brass  knocker on the front door. An elderly  woman In cap and apron answered  their strident summons and smiled  upon-thein knowingly.  "Step right Into the parlor, If you  please/isbe Invited..'

The Barber's Story.  The barber drew the keen razor  over his customer's face and began:  "A friend of mine told me the best  (Ish story I ever beard.in my life while  he was getting shaved the other day.  Want to hear it? All right. You see.  it concerns a physician who had a  friend who was daffy over fisb. and be  used to try all kinds of queer experiments with them. One time the friend  told the physician that If you took a  fish and kept it out of water every  day. increasing the time each day.  you'd sodu have the fish so that li  wouldn't hare to be in the water at all.  Well, the idea sounded reasonable to  the physician, so he went and bought  a large shad. Be put it In an aquarium, and every day he took It out of  the watprand put It on the floor. Tbe  first day he only allowed It to stay out  for thirty seconds, but every day he  Increased' the time until finally the  shad didn't need any water at all to  live In.  "Well, one ralDy night the physician  was sitting In his study tpachlng the  shad to smoke a cigar when the telephone bell rung, and after answering  It the physician prepared to go out on  a hurry call. He ordered his carriage,  and when It appeared at the door he  went out. the shad following him. It  was raining hard, aud a perfect torrent of water was flowing down the  gutters. -Theshad attempted to get In  the'carriage! but slipped aud<fell into  the gutter and was drowned. Oh. I'm  sorry I cut you. sir. But you couldn't  help smiling then, could you?"���������Philadelphia Press.  Dr. Williams' Pink.Pill's were originally a'prescription used, in the doctor's  private practice and their benefit to  mankind "has been' increased' many  thousand fold by their being placed on  general sale throughout the world with  the'doctor's own directions for use!  They are entirely safe and contain no  opiate or habit-forming drugs.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are a remedy to use when the blood is thin as  in anaemia or impure, as in rheumatism, or when the nerves "are weak,  as in neuralgia; or lifeless in paralysis ; 'or when tho body as a whole is  ill nourished, as in general debility.  They-build up the-blood, strengthen  the nerves and cure the troubles of  women and growing girls, and many  forms of weakness. That thousands of  people have tried this treatment with  .good results is shown by the constantly- increasing number of cures reported.  Mr. Paul Charbonneau, ��������� a young,  man well known in the town of St.  lerome. Que., is one of the host who  bear testimony to the value of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. He says:���������  ''When I left school I became a bookkeeper in' an important office.' Probably due to the confinement" I began  to suffer from indigestion and loss of  strength. I became pale and seemingly bloodless and was often seized  with palpitation of the heart and  violent headaches. I tried several  remedies, but they did not do me a  bit of good. I was advised to try Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills and did so, and  the use of eight boxes" brought me-  back to perfect health and strength.' 1  have since enjoyed the best of health  and cannot say too much in praise of  this.valuable medicine.  You can get Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills from any medicine dealer or by  mail at 50 cents a box or six boxes for  $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine  Co<, Brockville, Ont.  STORY  OF OUR  DANCES.

They Illustrate the doctrine held by  the curator of line arts of the museum  that the builders of mediaeval times  frequently Introduced irregularities or  deviations from mechanical exactness  In their churches and cathedrals by  intention and that where irregularities  are found which may have bpen accidental the accident was not necessarily  due to Ignorance - or carelessness on  the part of the builder, but to tbp general Indifference to symmetry felt by  architects In tbe middle ages and to'  their willingness to see in divergence  from straight llnes-an element of beauty.���������New York Times.  The Present Popular Ones of Com-  ' paratively Recent Origin.  The fashion In dances, like other  fashions, are changeable. Two hundred  years ago the dances most In vogue  were - the gavot, aliemuude, ocurant,  bourree, pavau, sarabaude, minuet and  US-  . Of these only the last two survive at  present, and the minuet, although one  of the most graceful and picturesque  of dances, is very seldom essayed except on ceremonious occasions. The  dances now in fashion originated in  different countries aud at different  times during the last two centuries,  but mostly during the nineteenth.  The queen of all the dances is unquestionably the waltz. France has often laid claim to the honor, but it  originated among the German peasants  in the seventeenth or eighteenth century. As they danced it it was the  slow waltz called the landler.  Later the Vienna musicians took it  up. quickened the pace and by their  lovely musical settings'of this dance  rhythm established the* reign of the  rraltz throughout the world. It is noteworthy that the composers of the fluent  dancing waltzes ever written���������Schubert, Weber. Beethoven. Strauss, Limner. Labltzky and Waldteufel-were |  all Vienna men.. It Is properly a three  step dauce, whether slow or fast. The  two step waltz is a recent Innovation  and not au improvement.  Besides the waltz we owe to Germany the galop, an impetuous, dashiug  dance dating from about 1800; the  polka, a justly popular four step dance  derived from the Bohemian peasantry  about- 1S30, and the redova, a quick  movement in triple time, also Bohemian  In origin.  France has given us the minuet, the  quadrille or contradanee and the faran  dole, all square dances or dances par  ticipated  in  by several  pairs or sets  simultaneously.���������Circle Magazine.  Queer Things That'Go on In Lonelier  Ontario.  The manners and ^ustoms ��������� of certain rural sections of the Province of  Ontario have been fairly well illustrated by the telegraph despatches in  the local papers this summer. ���������' In  fact ."it has been demonstrated that  both old and new Ontario offer a very  fruitful ��������� field for domestic mission's.  The homicide- at Thorndale, Ont.,  which the coroner's jury held to be  justifiable homicide, is an instance;  and indeed Middlesex county since  the days of the Biddulph tragedies  has been by no means backward in  fattening-up the news columns of the  press,       -  A Toronto ��������� man who used to, live  near Thorndale told an anecdote the  other *d ay which'he said was a fair'  sample of what goes on in many parts  of the province about six miles back  from the railway. There used to live  up there an old man with a^ large  family and a bad disposition, who,  though he was small in stature, dearly loved a fight. He did not care particularly .whether the victim was weak  or strong, male or female. Therefore  he made it his practice to wallop periodically his wife and his whole family of grown-up children, daughters as  well as sons. One evening after dark  he went over to a neighbor's to borrow a hay-rack, and it so chanced- that  this neighbor had two buxom daughters who were being courted by the  youths of the locality. Two swains  were in the house at the time and one  of them hastily borrowing a sheet  slipped out the back way, and encountered the venercble wife-beater a little way down the road as he was returning home. The old fellow, profoundly superstitious, was startled by  the white figure which at once grasped him by the coat collar and informed him that he was the devil, and  demanded that he "come along;"  much as a detective collars a pickpocket. Thff old man pleaded for his  life and the.Satanic personage finally  agreed to give him one year more of  life on condition that he would cease  to abuse his family. The culprit  promised and the husky impersonator  of Satan dipped him up to his ears  in a nearby creek, just to seal the  bargain.  For six months his meekness in the  presence of his family was the joke of  the countryside. Unfortunately, one  of his sons-in-law was in the habit of  looking on the wine when it was red,  and one day in a merry mood he confided in tlie old man the jest that  had been perpetrated upon him. The  effect was instantaneous. The old  man rushed home, and starting in  with his wife gave the whole family  such a series of trouncings as they,  had never experienced previously,  even in his wildest moments.  Cure That Obstinate Sore  Where Ordinary Salves Fail Zam-Buk  Succeeds.  Chronic sores which cause .trouble  by "breaking open," may be cured  by Zam-Buk, as well as recent injuries and diseases. If you suffer ��������� from  some old sore���������hidden, perhaps, but  none the less painful for that���������don't  dally, apply nature's healing essences  as proyided in Zam-Buk.. Mrs. I. E.  Ashton, of 111 Vicker St., Fort William, tells how valuable Zam-Buk is  as a family balm. She says:���������"We  first used Zam-Buk for cuts, bruises,  etc., and found it so satisfactory that  my husband started using it for a  chronic sore. For a long time he had  been bothered with an old sore on his  leg, and had used various preparations, yet nothing had permanently  cured it. He began applying Zam-  Buk balm, and was very soon agreeably surprised, to notice a great improvement.  "It. was only a matter of a short  time<before Zam-Buk had thoroughly  cleansed the sore of all foul matter  ancl healing commenced. It is now  some months since the sore was completely closed, and there is no likelihood of it breaking out again.  "Since   then   my   baby,    eighteen  CLIMBED MOUNT R0BS0N,  on the scalp by Zam-Buk. This ec  zenia came in red pimples, and if rubbed or scratched, formed into sores.  The child was very fretful from the  irritation of the scalp, but whenever  Zam-Buk was applied it seemed ��������� to  bring the greatest relief. Frequent  applications were effective in clearing all traces of the disease from the  baby's scalp in a short space of time.  I feel it my duty to give the credit  where due, and I cheerfully recommend Zam-Buk to all sufferers from  chronic sores, bad leg, or eczema."  Zam-Buk is Nature's own healing  balm, being composed of pure herbal  essences. It is a sure cure for. eczema, ringworm, ulcers, cuts,. burns,  bruises, poisoned sores, ; chronic  wounds, bad leg, festering sores, chapped hands,' cold sores, frost-bite and  all skin injuries and diseases.

Rev.  George   Kinney  Has  Performed  Remarkable  Feat.  Little has been said in the press of  a rather notable'teat of exploration  recently performed in Canada. Mount  Robson, the highest peak in the  Canadian Rockies, the goal of many  ���������mountain climbers of all nationalities, has at last' been-reached. The  honor of this remarkable achievement'goes to a Canadian and a clergyman,- Rev. George Kinney of Kese-  meos, B.C.  Mount Robson is not only the highest peak in Canada but it is also extremely difficult of ascent owing to  its formation, rising ^two miles over  the valleys below at an average slope  of sixty degrees. Mr. Kinney has  been mountain-climbing for a number  of years, but drifted into the sport  quite accidentally. He had always  been an ardent-naturalist and in the  quest ol specimens had occasion to  make short climbs up some of the  smaller peaks. Gradually climbing  began to grow upon him and finally  he decided to ascend to the top of one  of the higher mountains just to see  what it was like, and also fo'r the purpose of taking some photographs.

Down at the Woodbine in Toronto  they tell another story illustrating the  folly of the man who becomes infatuated with his own horse.   A year or  so ago a real good fellow brought a  steeplechaser   to the  Ontario Jockey  Club meet with the expectation that  he was going to sweep all before him.  One day he,told his  friends:  "Play  his   strong   to-morrow;   he's   in   the  right company to win, and the odds  will be  long."   The odds were long  and the, friends bet heavily, but the  beast rah last.   The spring meet ended and the horse went away  to the  American  tracks,.    One  day the  Toronto friends of the owner received a  telegram advising them to put a bet  on him next day at Latonia as it was  a   "cinch"   and   the   odds   would   be  long.    A  number of them made the  play just  bjeans." they felt that the  animal owed them money.   Again he  was pretty close to last.  .   The  autumn   meet  transpired   and  the   owner   came   to  town   with   his  dearly beloved  beast.    Once more he  was full  of excuses  and  enthusiasm  for  the  animal.       He  was  sure  he  would win a certain race and before  the start he  told  the jockey  to put  the spurs to the brute and  to whip  him  all  the  way  round  because  he  had to win to save his face with his  Toronto  friends.      He  promised  the  jockey an extra fee of ten dollars whether  the   horse   won   or  lost   and   a  hundred dollars'if he won.   The jockey obeyed instructions with the same  result as usual.   That night,-true to  his   prqmise,   the  owner  handed  the  rider his additional ten.  "O say," responded the latter, "I  don't like to take your money: why  the horse ain't worth ten dollars."

They must be taken according to directions and used steadily and  they will speedily give evidence of  their beneficial effects.  Expert  Dog Finders.  There  i3   a   gentleman   in  Toronto  who has discovered that the business  of finding dogs can be turned into a  profitable  industry.      A  friend gave  him  a collie  pup  which  he  assured  him was of the very first water as far  as pedigree was concerned.   After he  had  kept  him   a   month  or  two  the  pup  disappeared   and   an   advertisement was inserted in one of the daily  papers.  Two boys brought the animal  back and so grateful was the. guardian and well-wisher of the pup that  he gave them three dollars.   A month  later the family pet again disappeared and after an advertisement was-inserted  the  same   boys   brought   him  back, saying he had strayed to their  place  the  night  before.    They  were  rewarded with two dollars this time.  Another four or five  weeks  elapsed  and once more the pup was missing.  Another   advertisement   brought   the  same lads back with the wayward little beast.   The rightful owner put his  hand  in his pocket to give them  a  dollar,   but   suddenly   changed   his  mind.  "No," he said, "on second thoughts,  I gues3 you can keep the pup."

He had already made four trips up  Mount Robson but never succeeded  in reaching the summit. He set out  this year again by himself, but picked up a Mr. Phillips who had accompanied him in previous years in the  Yellowhead Pass. While waiting at  the_foot ot the mountain for a suitable day, the provisions-ran out, and  when the sum total of their larder  consisted of a little rice and stray  gophers that they had killed, it was  decided that the ascent could no' longer be delayed, despite the fact that  the weather was very unfavorable.  The first day they made 11,000 feet  and then camped for the night, utterly exhausted by fatigue, and the inclement weather. At" daybreak the  climb was resumed and after climbing for twenty hours they reached the  summit. Mr. Kinney says it was one  of the greatest moments of his life,  when, after four unsuccessful attempts, he at last attained the mecca  of all mountain-climbers in Canada.  When asked the other day in Edmonton by the editor of The Saturday-  News if he lingered very long on  the top, Mr. Kinney answered very  emphatically in the negative. The  cold was so intense that after taking  some photographs, preparations were  quickly made for the descent. Descending is much easier work than  the climb but also more dangerous.  The first part is made slowly but  when the slopes became more gradual, the sliding begins. Imagine a  number of toboggan slides of 2,000  feet in length, and you will have some  idea of the return trip.  A  Woodbine Story.  The   autumn  race  meeting  at  the  Woodbine, Toronto, brings to mind an  incident which  occurred ��������� at  the  fall  meeting of a year ago.   A prominent  horse owner who was here from the  United States knew practically all the  good things that were going, but like  all the men who-make a genuine killing on the horses was very chary of  giving information.    However, he became fascinated with a young actress  who was staying at the King Edward  Hotel and under oath of almost Masonic secrecy imparted to her tips on  two   races   for   a   certain   day.     The  young   lady  was   informed   that  she  must on no account breathe a word  about  these   tips   to   anyone.       She  promptly gave her information to the  star,  the  leading  lady,   the manager  and everybody else she liked in 'the  company,  with   the   result   that-the  crowd   laid  bets  and  the  odds  were  knocked down considerably from the  original   figures.    The  next  day she  met  the  horse  owner,  thanked  him  for the tips of the previous day which  had turned out so well and asked for  another good thing.   The gentleman,  as  if on  as  friendly  terms  as ever,  suavely handed her something which  he said  was  a sure winner  but did  not admonish   her" to  keep  it  quiet.  When the crowd went down to play  this horse they noticed that the odds  did   not   drop   as   before; they   even  went up.   When the horses came un  der the wire the sure thing was last.  The horse owner had got even.  14k. GOLD BROOCH  $5.00    .

Lord Strathcona's Break.  Just across the Saskatchewan River from Edmonton, the capital city of  Alebrta, is the town of Strathcona.  These twin cities are not exactly rivals after the fashion of Port Arthur  and Fort William; but the smaller  place is keenly jealous of its rights  and its fame as a civic entity. On  the other hand Edmonton is quite  sure that the only progressive future  possible for Strathcona is in .annexation to the provincial capital. The  newspapers of. Edmonton say that  public opinion in favor of the  union is rapidly growing in the  "suburbs" across the river. In the  meantime the people of both places  indulge in remarks about each other  which are not by any means as mild  as those exchanged between Toronto  and Hamilton."  All of which having been explain-  ed, eastern readers will understand  the fealings of the people of the town  named after him, when Lord Strathcona in his first speech after his arrival there recently told of the pleasure with which he had long looked  forward to visiting "this great city  of Edmonton."  Ftrathcona people consider this was  a bad break, but Edmonton citizens  remark with a broad smile that it was  a very significant one.  Maritime  Union.

The at-gumenb most persistently  advanced by its opponents'in deprecating the railway policy of the  government and urging its rejection is based upon the remote assumption that the government  might, in the' last extreme, be  called upon under the guarantee to  meet the bonds of the assisted new  transcontinental lino tit 885,000  per mile for the GOO miles approximately in British Columbia, or  $21,000,000 in the aggregate.  There is the-remotest, the most  distant possibility of this condition  arising. The vast preponderance  of evidence, of argument, and of  sound business opinion, moreover,  is that not one dollar in interest or  other charge will ever be called  for from the provincial treasury.  But even in the last and remotest chance, would the country be  so helplessly betrayed? Hero is a  New Zealander's opinion, formed  upon examination of the question  from quite a new viewpoint:  " I am more accustomed to state  owned and operated railroads than  private ones," he says, "although  now that I have seen something of  Canadian railway methods I must  confess they seem superior to 01ns.  The service is infinitely better.  The railroad worker's' wa^e ii*  higher. The management is more  practical. The private-built railway i-i a better eoloni/.Uion agent,  since its owners promote new industries for the creation of traffic.  And it isn't a part of the political  machine.  " But in the case'as it presents  itself to British Columbia- what do  we find. The province guarantees the honds for G00 miles in  British Columbia under security of  a- first morrg-'-.ge on the road. The  road.is to have the lowest gradients  and best alignment of any through  line on the continent. It will cost,  according to Mackenzie & Mann,  at lcvt'803,000 a mile. Mr.- f.  W. Patterson, I understand,  s.'iys- it will be much ' more  costl}', running up  to  even $100,-  000 a mile, but it.will he far and  away.the most economical traus-  American line to operate.  "Supposing the railway company fails to redeem its bonds.  Thf-ir proceeds are not payable out  of the provincial treasury until the  road is built��������� of course as the work  proceeds, if the company eventually defaults,' the province forecloses in the natural course of  business. Do you mean to say-  that there could be any chance of  .the security not being many times  more than ample to recoup the investment and interest? "\Vliy, all  the railways of the continent would  be in the market as buyers 1 Or,  it could be leased under conditions  01 advantage to ^the public for ten  times the annual charge against it.
