Canned Afflictions to Be Turned Loose  Without Openers-^-The Major, Aflked  to Finance the Project, Turns It  Down and Sadly Reflects.  ICopyrlght,  By M. QUAD.  1910,   by   Associated   Literary  Press. J  A.I011" CKOKOOT,. grand' promoter of some of the grand  est enterprises on the face  of tlie earth, sat in his olliee  and shivered.' It wns cold, and there  -tvus only a handful of coal. It was the  winter (morning) of his di.seontcut.  For.11 week only one person had entered his odiee, and that was n man'who  had a scheme to grow logs under a  brick nnd make u sugar beet of it, nnd  bo had refused to invest a dollar in  uny other enterprise.  The major was wondering if he could  spare another leg of his desk to keep  the fire going when liis ollico door  opened with a bang and n brisk little  man entered and helped himself to a  chair, nnd, rubbing his.hands together,  be began:  "Grandest scheme ever originated In  the brains of man and will make you  a '"millionaire in a year. The position  of vice president Is open, and 1 olTor  It to you at a salary of .'j'50,000 a year.  AH you've got to do is to ride around  to an auto and smoke fifty cent cigars.

I   "Sir,  I don't know you," stiffly replied the major.  i   "Bank   references   from   432   banks  and twenty-eight state governors.  Kat-  'J ed in the books as good for ten liiil-  '   lions.   Can you raise $3,000?"  j  "Are you n promoter?".  I   "Fidelity 'Johnson,' sir, who has promoted sixty-four different schemes and  made each and every one a  howling  success.   Began on 30 cents two years  ago  and  am   now   worth   $30,000,000.  Monte Cristo and  Golcondo won't be  In it with me two years hence.   Major,  do you want to roll in gold and wallow  in diamonds?    If so come ui with F.  J.���������named  Fidelity by my mother because she always found the cuke gone  wheu  she got  back.    Can you  raise  $1.000���������just a little thousand?"  1   "But I'm a promoter myself," replied  the major.  "Oh, no, you're not. You are not Z  in the promoting business. You just  think you are. Can you raise $500���������  $300���������aye, $100? If you can the position Is yours. Fifty thousand a year,  and we shall insist that you smoke at  least ten good cigars a day and wear  n fur coat in winter. Major, come into  the Canned Germ company and wallow in wealth."  Major Crofoot Resents.  "I don't like your talk, sir. You  Bcem to take me for a hayseed."  "The Canned Germ company is what  It's name implies. Your bedroom,  this oflice, the rooms of almost every  Louse in the land, are full of germs-  germs of fifty different ailments. They  nest. They fly about. They multiply.  You breathe them in and have pneumonia, typhoid, etc. The little germ  does it, major; he sure does. Kid your  rooms of the germ and you rid yourself of disease. No more drugs; no  more doctors. Do you begin to see,  eh?"  "I promoted the Arctic Circle Strawberry Raising company," said the  major as he straightened up.  "Mere nothing, sir���������mere nothing.  Dr. Cook came back at just the crucial moment and reported that arctic  strawberries hnd a punkiny taste, nnd  your whole scheme fell down. It  wasn't like canned germs, sir. No  chance for Dr. Cook to spoil us. tie  went for the pole, nnd we go for the  germs. No clashing of Interests, .you  see. Major, can you raise $50���������$25���������  $10?"  "I'm a promoter, not an investor!"*  elmost shouted the major.  "Ah, what an opportunity���������what nn  opportunity?" exclaimed F. D. as lie  leaned back, but still rubbing his  hands together. "Such a thing comes  but once In a lifetime. Salary $50,000  a year, and you get a pay envelope  every fifteen minutes if you Want It.  Capitalists lift their lints, bankers  bow, John D. comfs to you for advice. A-h-h-hl 1 said $10, major, but  can you raise the half of that?   How  about 52.50?"  "You can't string me, and you  needn't waste your breath;"  "And I haven't yet told you all about  canned germs, major. We use vacuum  to druw 'em up. They've got to come  or it pulls their hind legs off. We get  "eia by the handful, the pint, the peck.  the barrel. O Lord, but we do get  'eml The suction brings 'em right In.  No use In getting a toe hold and pulling bnck. And, when we've got 'em,  whnt then? Ah, that's the whole beautiful scheme! It's where our dividends come from. Major, how many  doctors In the United States alone?"  Still Silent.  The  major  gave  him  a  desperate  took, diu no reply.  "These doctors must have patients���������got to lisive, got' to have.  Where get them When no one Is 111?  Why, from (he Canned Germ company. One can of germs let.loose In a  neighborhood is warmnled to- bring  fifty patients. Fifty patients mean  $1,000, und there you are. Major, can  you raise 50 cents, 25 cents? Can you  sell that shirt which you have on and  which Is probably your only one for  15 cents?" .' .'    ,  "That's an Insult, sir!" shouted the  major as ho Jumped to. his feet.  "If you   only   could,   major���������-if  you  only could!    Gold  to  wallow in, and  yet you  can't wallow!    Greatness to  be achieved,' and yet you linger down  among tlie little fellers!

Tramped  Forty  Miles a Day.  It   was   a   London   policeman   w'.o  referring to the splendid physique of  of  Dr.. Sinclair.  Archdeacon  ol   Lon  don,   whose, forthcoming   retireaien  lias been announced, said, "He ougii;  to be one of us."   Dr. Sinclair sta .d.-  considerably over six feet in heig.it,  and is broad in proportion.   His father   was  one   of  fifteen   children,   the  shortest   of   whom   was   six   f<jet   in  height and the tallest six feet s.vci.  inches.    One day  the  tallest  of   th  archdeacon's   aunts  was  accosted   b..  an Irish beggar-woman, who invoked  blessings on her head in the hope of  alms.    Finding her blandishments in  vain,  the  woman  changed  her  ton:*,  and   exclaimed,   "At   leact  ye   m'ght  give rue your shoe to make a crad!e_  for my baby."

The  Duncans Are Winning Fame In  Different Fields.  , The inventive bump ia large in  Canada. There nre Canadians making a fat living by devising ingenious  stories which tickle the national intellectual palate. There are other  Canadians "who are being paid big  salaries for the use of their expert  services in  manufacturing.    -  The classical outlet for persons of  abnormal wit was formerly literature  and art. Machinery came to be a  force in civilization . A'great part of  the brains which used to go in for  writing and painting went to help  build up industry., C.me people say  that poetry on earth is dead. Other  people sny that more poetry is being  written in the world to-day than there  was yesterday. ��������� They class Mr. 'Marconi with Homer.  There is a family in Canada who  are making poetry, old style and new  style, Their name is Duncan. One  of the members of this family woiks  with pen and ink. Any person who  is at all interested in fiie Northland  country knows something about Norman Duncan who wrote "Dr. Luke  of the Labrador." Norman Duncan  is one of the blood-red fictionists'on  this continent to-day. His -.-: stories  appear ..in- all the big magazines of  Canada and Europe.  Norman Duncan, novelist, ha3 a  brother, Robert Duncan, who looks  like him, with long, shaggy hair,  dreamy eyes, and that sort of thing.  For nil the world Robert Duncan  might havo been nn inventor of  stories, too, like the highly original  and interesting Norman. Except that  it'happened he became an inventor���������  in the realm of applied science.  Down in Pittsburg, where Dr.  Robert Kennedy; Duncan now is, the  papers of tho "Smoky City" have  been talking recently of him as one  of tho biggest "smokes" in,the town,  calling him the "now Edison," and  other pet names like that. It .seems  that Dr. Duncan for sorne years has  been doing a lot of big things in a  quiet, unassuming, manly, Canadian  way, and people are just beginning  to find it out.  They are recalling that he was the  law scholar, expert in chemistry,  whom thc United 'States Government  sent a few years ago over to Germany to study the chemistry-of commerce, . aiid report to them its 'application to United States industry; and  whom after his return the University  of Kansas called to the new chair of  industrial chemistry. ,To have revolutionized many processes of manufacturing in a highly organized commercial community like the United  States, that's the credit they are giving to Robert Kennedy Duncan.

The man who is genuinely on the  road looking for work i3 finding  things made easy for him just now  in Berkshire, England, and adjacent  unions in Oxford and Buckingham.  Bread stations are established at  easy intervals, and men who prove  they are really searching for work  are given "way tickets," which entitle  ���������them to a mid-day meal at these stations.  And then at casual-wards they are  given special treatment.  The idea is to test the system with  a view to stamping out vagrancy. For  the tramp there will be no such consideration ahown. Indeed, notices  have been stuck up all over Berkshire  requesting the public decline to assist  beggars, and to report all cases to  tlie nearest police-station.  When the King Motors.  It may not be generally known that  the drivers of the motor-cars of the  King, the Prince of Wales, and the  Duke of Connaught are all policemen.  Tho late King's instructions were,  "Run no risks, but lose no time." The  latter clause used to be obeyed so implicitly that Lord Derby once, when  returning from Newmarket a "horse's  length" behind the King, on whom  he was in attendance, was stopped in  his motor by thc police at Burnet���������a  happy illustration of the principle  that the Kirig can do no wrong. The  royal drivers do not rely on a motor-  horn alone. Alongside them on the  box there sits a footman, who playa  a key-bugle to announce the approach  oi  the car.  Anything to Oblige.  There was no greater admirer of the  qualities of Lord Fisher, who, having  attained his seventieth birthday, retires from the active list of the navy,  than Queen Victoria. A delightful  story i.s told of how, when a certain  French admiral was about to pay a  visit to Portsmouth���������this was when  Sir John was admiral superintendent  at the dockyard���������the Queen requested him to be sure and "be very  nice" to tho visitor. With ii face as  impassive us a Chinese mandarin the  adtnirul replied, "I'll kiss him if you  wish it, ma'am!" Devoted to duty,  Lord Fisher would brook no shirking  from any man under him. A certain  captain once sent word that it was  impossible to got his ship to such  and such a pluce on a given date.  "Umph!" replied "Jacky Fisher," as  ho is known in the service. "Tell  Captain Blank that if he is not ready  to leave for X  on the cluy named  I'll have him towed there."  An Energetic Britisher.  Mr. J. Ellis Barker, the well-known  English writer on politics and economics, recently paid a flying visit to  Canada to take a hand in the reciprocity controversy. Many persons picture the writers for the stately British  reviews and similar journals as  academic gentlemen, whose fightii j  blood is not allowed to run away with  them. Mr. Barker does not belong  to that type. He has the swinging  stride and the masterful way of the  man who will not put up with contradiction, and he lays clown his views  in the most decided manner.-  Mr. Barker came to Canada with a  plan of campaign for the fight against  the treaty, and he gave it out in  speeches and interviews. lie hurried  round to the sympathetic newspaper  offices in Toronto and proceeded to  wake things up with a vigor that  suggested the militant American politician. He gave his instructions and  departed. In one <ffice he saw a  map of grain areas which interested  him, and before anyone could gasp,  it ha-', been given to him. He took  out the nails nnd departed with it.  Mr. J. Ellis Barker would quite upset  the views of anyone who thought that  English public men preferred to move  with a minimum amount of speed.  As one Torontonian remarked:  "Really, if I did not know otherwise,  I should think he had the British Empire in his pocket."  Whitefish Are  Dying.  To arrest the rapid depletion of the  Great Lakes of whitefish, the Marine  and Fisheries Department require to  place in the five great fresh water  bodies 2,000,000,000 of fry annually.  This would be the beginning of the  work of restoring to its former abundance the supply of whitefish. The  food value of such a fish supply can-  no*, be estimated by Ontario.  The yearly catch of whitefish in  Lake Superior, Georgian Bay and  around the Manitoulin Islands has  decreased approximately 5,000,000  pounds annually from the year 1890 to  1899, at a value of over $500,000, and  not one whitefish fry from the hatcheries has even been planted in these  waters. On the other hand most of  the fry propagated at the hatchery at  Sandwich has been liberated into  Lake Era, and the result has beeu  an increased catch of 400 per cent.  during the same period.    ������������������ . ��������� ���������  There has b^en no decrease in the  salmon trout supply in the lakes.  This fish cannot be caught in gill  nets, and when caught is only half  the value of whitefish.  While British Columbia and Manitoba lakes receive some attention, the  Great Lakes system seems to be starved. Hatcheries nre needed at the Soo,  Southampton, Goderich, Collingwood,  Owen Sound, Hamilton, Toronto,  Belleville and Kingston, if the white-  fish are to be saved from extinction.  Joshing thc Newspapers.  The Mail and Empire, one of Toronto's three morning papers, recently-  ceased publishing an evening edition.  The Globe, however, still continues to  publish in the evening, although the  great bulk in its circulation ia on its  morning editions. The staffs of the  Toronto evening papers havo made a  lot of good-natured fun over the evening editions of the two papers mentioned. Probably the best enjoyed jibe I  was that sprung by a newspaper man '  soon after The Mail and Empire cut  off its evening edition. He said: "The  Evening Mail has ceased publication.  Its subscriber died, and The Evening  Globe's subscriber is pretty sick."  Things   Not Always  What  they  Seem  "When*   are   you   going   with   those  cannon   balls,  Jock?"

Plenty of grain food is necessary  for tlie production of fertile eggs that  will hatch strong chickens.  The early hatched cockerel is the  one that brings tlio highest price in  the market next spring.  If, you are going to buy an incubator, do not (loliiy, but order it now  so that you may be sure to have it  when you need it.  Exercise obtained by scratching in  a deep clean litter of grain, with tlie  poultry house windows open, is a  great aid to good health, and good  health means more profit.  It never pays to keep old hens and  pullets in the same pen for tlio older  birds will frequently get too fat on  the amount of food that,is required  Lo keep the younger ones in good  condition.  Hens will lay without a male in  the flock and the eggs will keep  belter.  Tho fowl will stand considerable  cold if the air is dry and pure.  Damp foul air is sure to cause  trouble.  Got a can of liquid lice killer and  paint the roost and roost supports  occasionally to protect the fowls  against the little mites that accumulate in that part of the hen house.  To get eggs you must feed enough  to maintain the health and strength  of the'-:hfins, and enough more than  that to form a surplus out of which  eggs can be made.  Do not get the ducks too fat during  the winter or they will not lay well  in the spring. Examine them occasionally to make sure that they are in  fair flesh. "  Table scraps, potato peelings, and  all pieces of meat and vegetables that  accumulate in the kitchen, should be  boiled together and mixed with meal  and bran to form a noon day lunch  for the fowls in winter.

'  RAW,   DAMP    WEATHER    STARTS  THE PAIN, BUT,THE TROUBLE  LIES  IN THE BLOOD.  Spring weather is bad for rheumatic  sufferers.   The change from mild to  severe weather, cold, raw, clamp winds  following mildness start the aches and  twinges, or in more extreme cases, the  tortures of the trouble going.   But it  must be borne in mind that it is not  the weather that causes rheumatism,  the trouble is rooted in the blood���������the  changeable weather merely starts the  pains.    The  only way  to  reach    the  trouble and to cure it is through the  blood. The poisonous rheumatic acids  must- be thrown off and driven out.  This is a solemn medical truth every  rheumatic    sufferer    should    realize.  Liniments    and    outward application  may  give   temporary  relief, but   they  never did and never can cure rheumatism.   Any doctor will tell you this is  .true.    The   sufferer  is   only   wasting  time   and   money   with   this   sort   of  treatment, and all the time the trouble is becoming more firmly rooted���������  and harder to cure.   There is just one  sure, speedy cure   for   rheumatism���������  Dr.  Williams'  Pink  Pills.    They act  directly  on  the  weak,    impure    and  tainted    blood.      They    purify    and  strengthen  it and   thus  root  out the  cause of .rheumatism.   Here is a bit  of proof out of thousands of similar  cases that might be given.   Mrs. F.  X. Boissenu, St. Jerome, Que., says:  ���������"For almost two years I was a terrible sufferer from rheumatism.    The  trouble first located in the right leg,  milking work about the house impossible,  and   walking very difficult.    I  tried to cure myself hy means of all  sorts   of   liniments   and   lotions,   but  with no result���������it was   only    money  wasted.   The. trouble constantly grew  worse and the pains more unbearable'.  Finally it attacked the other leg, nnd  I was all but helpless and completely  discouraged,   thinking  I  would   be a  sufferer for  tlie rest of my life.    At  this time I read in our home paper of  the trouble being cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and I decided to try  them.   After using the pills for several weeks I could see that they were  helping me,  and I continued' taking  them  until I had  used nine or ten  boxes   when   every   syniptomv of   the  walk as well as ever I did.   Hnd I  known  of  Dr.  Williams'   Pink   Pills  earlier  I   would   have  saved  myself  much    suffering   and   much    money  spent  in  oilier useless treatment  as I  well."  Whether you are ailing or not a few  boxes of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills will  A Consumption Cure  Milk strippings when taken fromva  healthy cow that gives very rich milk  and taken in quantities of a quart  twice a day: immediately after milking before it cools any, will cure a  larger per cent, of cases of consumption than any other treatment and  will cure in half the time of any  other method. It will also prevent it  when taken in time. The reason why*  it is so successful is because it is absorbed or transfused into the circulation almost immediately without  taxing the digestive organs as other  foods do, and as the strippings or  last quart of the milking from a cow  that gives very rich milk is nearly all  cream the patient will take on fat so  much faster than can be accomplished by any other method that they  soon gain enough strength and vitality to overcome the germs causing  consumption.  To get best results one should begin  with a glass, of strippings and increase gradually; but if there is any  disgust created for it any time the  quantity should be dropped at once to  one half and then incrensc gradually  again. In two or three weeks they can  usually lake a quart in the morning  and evening.  'It is very important to take it  immediately after milking so as not  to allow it to cool below blood heat.  In cold weather it should be milked  into a dish resting in warm water to  prevent it from cooling any.

The men  were repairing water pipes in the yard  behind the house of a miner, when  they discovered a petroleum spring,  about two feet below the surface.

A boat which was found a few  weeks ago deeply embedded in tho  mud of the foreshore during the excavations near Westminster Bridge,  has proved to be a rare specimen of  a Roman boat of a kind which was in  use about the middle of the third century. It is about 50 feet long, with n  sixteen foot beam. In it were found  several pieces of Roman pottery, iron  nails, glass gaming buttons, and coins.

Central  Part of the  Great  Island  Is  Practically Useless.'  Anyone wl*u looks at the map cf  Australia must be struck jy the uncharted desolation cf the great central  area cf the island c nti-ient The cities  and the-railroads constitute the merest marginal fringe of evidence of-civilization', and the rivers whirh would  offer possiblities of irrigation are conspicuous by absence.

The country has never been  crossed betwixt east and w.eso.  At a recent meeting of the Royal  Geographical Society, I rof. J. W.Gregory maintained that no system oi  -irrigation will ever be possible in the  practically rajnless interior of Australia, except along the banks of the  Darling and Murray' Rivers. There  are flowing wells in Queenstown and  New South Wales, but their supply is  inconstant and inadequate. But in  western Australia the discovery of n  wide-spread subterranean deposit cf  fresh water makes it possible to prophecy with reason a great agricultural  and pastoral future for that region.  In Central Australia there will prob  ably never be any considerable settlement, except in the limited area of the  mining fields. Recently discovered  gold fields in the centre of the continent are proving, as throughout the  course of human history, a potent lure  lo bring the restless and feverish prospectors from the cities of the eoa.-t.  As Prof. Gregory pointed out, all the  centres of population hitherto hnve  been on the coast, and there is no inland city with more than 50,000 inhabitants. It was thought that th<  little town ot Bourke, on the Darling  River, would prove to be the Chiengo  of Australia, but the population, numbering 2,600 in 1905, continues to  dwindle.  Tho artesian well may yet prove to  be th(- salvation of interior Australia.  Borings on the route of the proposed  transcontinental railway in western  Australia-have shown the presence ot  water 340 miles from Kalgoorile, and  Sir John Forster is confident of find  ing a, subterranean supply of water  which may result in reclaiming to the  use of civilized mankind some 30,000,-  000 acres of what has hitherto been regarded as one of the irredeemable  waste places of the earth.  Queen's Fur Collection.  Queen Mary possesses one of the  mo������t wondeiful collections of furs in  the world, and she is very partial to  these. Included in Her Majesty's collection is a magnificent set of Russian  sables which were presented to her a  few years ago upon the occasion of  her birthday by the Tsar and Tsarina  She is often chaffed by members of  her family regarding her preference  for furs and fur-ti ������.imed garments,  and a short time ago his present Majesty was asked what he thought she  would wear upon the occasion of a  yachting trip in the Solent. "Well, "I  am not quite sure," he replied, with a  humorous twinkle in his eye, "but I  rather imagine it will be something  with fur on it." Strangely enough,  despite this partiality for fur, Her  Majesty, docs not care for ermine,  and some time ago she suggested that  the robes of peers and peeresses woul i  look far moie imposing if they'were  trimmed with dark fur. The motoring coat that the Queen usually wears  is a marvellous specimen of the furriers' ait, and is made up of some  thousands of tails, each so perfectly  matched and joined that it looks like  one large piece of fur even when subjected to the closest, scrutiny.

Presiding the other day at the annual meeting at Basingstoke of the  Diocesan Home of Rescue Work, the  Bishop of Winchester made an urgent  appeal for funds to wipe off the remaining debt of $150 on the building  fund of the warden's house. At the  closeof the meeting the bishop planted his "shovel" hat down on the table  with a bang, remarking, "There's my  hat and there's a five pound note;  now then, we must get rid of this  debt." The hat was accordingly passed round, and produced over $250 in  cash and promises, so thnt the debt  was cleared off with $100 to spare.  "That," said the bishop, "is doing  the hat-trick."

Tlm fluttering sail had made so much noise  that Vane had not heard tho girl before, lie frowned unconsciously, for  he was in no liiiinor for company.  "It's too rough today.

"Because 1 want to, because It suits  my mood."  The words sounded rude, but Mar-  Jorle Wimdrop knew from the Intent  expression on Vane's face as be gazed  out on the black clouds, the sullen  green water of the bay and the wind  blown whitocaps that be was speaking more to himself than to ber.  "And If It suits my mood?"  "You with moods, child?" Vane said  wonderingly. "What can yon know of  thoughts jblaclj enough to suit with  such a day? . (Jo back to your dolls or  read your pretty fairy love stories and  believe In their truth as long as you  can," he added bitterly.

"She won't care.   She only thinks of  Edith.   It it was Edith, now. it would  be different, but I'm not such a valuable cargo.   No one will bother about  me."  There was a quaver in the girl's voice  that made Vane look at her. Sfte was  looking out over the yeasty water with  misty eyes and set mouth.  "All right." said  Vane after a moment's hesitation.    "I'm in a reckless  mood.   Let fate take care of us.   What  will be will be.   Jump In."  ���������������**������*������  It was a gusty day. and tbe Dot. too  light for such weather, her lee rail almost under water, staggered under the  flaws, every now aud then burying her  nose Into the rollers and sending a  shower of spray into the boat. Vane  had all he could do to manage ber and  lor a time forgot his companion and  almost his gloomy thoughts in the  grim pleasure of his coutest with wind  mid storm lashed sea. It was Edilb  Winthrop he was thinking of. the woman who had led him on to love ber  and then throwu him over for another  man. Edith did not care. Every one  must be sacrificed for ber amusement  -yes, even'-this'child,- her sister. At  the thought he glanced at the girl  where she sat poised out to windward,  like some spirit of the sea. her hair  blowing In the wind, her cheeks aglow  with excitement, ber eyes used with a  faraway look on the horizon. Vane  had never noticed bow pretty she was  before. Tie had always thought of her  as a mere child, and. lo, she was a woman! What was she thinking of? he  wondered.  As if iu answer to the question Mar-  Jorle turned and met his eyes for an  inslaut and then looked away.  "You've beard of Edith's engagement V" she said.  "Yes," answered Vane, setting his  teeih hard, "I found It out only today."  "I knew It weeks ago.  You thought  she cared for you?"  "Yes."  "You might have known she didn't.

"And you���������can you cafe for her  still?" asked Mnrjorle after a silence.  "Yes-hi least i care for tho Ideal 1  thought her."  "Whnt did you think her?"  "Brave,  courageous.

"Why did yon come out today In this  pile?" nil Id Mnrjorle. "Is your life so  worthless to you I hut you would risk  it because a thoughtless woman has  wounded you?"  "My life! What does it matter?

Every moment the wind In-,  creased, evpry moment the bay becarao  more tumultuous. Would they make  It? be wondered.  They were nearly opposite the boat-  house wheu there came a sudden whirl  of wind from between the hills ahead.  Vane bad but time to cry a warning  when the sail Jibed, the boom came  swinging over with an angry snarl, tho  boat was flung upon ber beam ends,  und the next moment he found himself entangled In cordage and battling  for his life beneath the wave3. With  desperate fingers he cleared himself  and came to the surface. And Mar-  Jorie��������� where was she? Had she been  struck by the boom and made unconscious or killed, or had she, too. been  carried down by the sinking boat?  For on agonized moment Vane could  see no sign of her, and then he spied  her just coining to the surface. Sho  was going down again when he caught  her and started for the shore. It was  n long swim ana inst a tide thnt seemed  to drag lilm down as If with clutching  bunds, but Vane swore he would save  this girl who had risked her life for  him or lose his own. He could see people running lo the boathouse now and  gel ting out the boat. How slow they  were! Would they never come? His  muscles were giving out; his breath  came heavily; his limbs felt like lead.  Could lie bold out? They were wearing fast now. He tried to revive hia  falling strength, to overmaster his  weakness. The world grew black before him. nnd then a strong arm gripped his shoulder, and he and Mnrjorle  were lifted into the boat and rowed toward shore.  *******  In those days afterward, while Mar-  jorie hovered between life and death,  Clifford Vane learned how much he  could do for this girl, this girl he  'thought was a child and now knew to  be the woman In all the world for him.  Oone was his love for Edith Winthrop.  ne knew now that he hnd In her sister  all thai Edith had seemed and more.  And there came a day when he was  permitted to see ber.  He found her ou an upper piazza of  the hotel clad in a soft blue wrapper,  her soft hair loose on her shoulders,  and the smile her pale face held for  him gave hini hope that la saving her  be had found happiness.  REFORM IN BRITISH PRISONS;  Churchill   Boldly   Does   What   Many  Have Tried to' Do.  Right Hon. Winston Churchill, tha  new English Home Secretary, has,  during the few mouths he has been in  office, boldly done what many English prison reformers have been vainly  endeavoring to get done for years.  This brilliant young politician has announced a series of reforms in the  British penitentiary system. It is said  that Churchill will do more than miti-  ga:e the horrors of solitary imprisonment. He will introduce , legislation  dei-ling with offenders between tho  agos of 10 and 21. Instead of being  sent to prison the youths who have  not committed serious offenses will be  subjected merely to some sort ot drill  or physical instruction which will be  both punitive and salutary. This reform, it is believed, will save 5,000  lads from prison every year.  There will be changes in the treatment of political offenders, includin**,  suffragists. They will enjoy many  privileges. Prison clothes need not  be worn. 'Ihere will be no compulsory baths, no, search, no hair-cutting  and   no  cell cleaning.  Free exercise Villi the right of conversation will be permitted twica  daily, also visits fiom friends, and  books not dealing with current events  nuiy be read. Lectures or concert*  will be given f:ur limes a year in the  convict prisons throughout the country.  Mil 'ALMOST DUE  II"  DISEASE     DEFIED     TREATMENT  WAS CUKED AT ONCE BY  "FRUIT-A-TIVES."

Yet in spite of. this  desertion was far more prevalent than  it now Is. for enlistment then was for  life, aud to "take French leave" was  the ouly way out of It. Today the soldier is well fed. well paid and well  cared for, and he does not desert, at  all events to any great extent. He  stops absent without leave, he "skips  out" of one regiment in order to join  some other he likes better, he rejoins  the colors from the reserve under an  assumed name, and so on, but these  things, although reprehensible enough  In themselves, fall short of desertion  as popularly understood, although  some of them are officially classed as  such. Actual out aud out desertion Is,  In fact, the rarest of army crimes nowadays.���������London Tit-Bits.  He Knew the Requirements.  Uncle Silas in his youth had been  "fond-of the society of the opposite  sex." to use his own words, and the  timidity of his t wenty-three-yeur-old  nephew was a great trial to him.  "What's the matter of you, Hod,- that  you stick at home Sunday evenings?"  he demanded plainly after many unavailing hints. "Why don't you go j  calliug ou some of your young lady  friends, boy?"  "Oh. 1 .don't care about It." said Rodney, turning n lively crimson. "They  wouldn't tind me interesting."  ���������-Wouldn't V*'    pulled    Uncle    Silas.  "Well.

A report has reached London, from  Johannesburg, South Africa, of the  finding of another large diamond in  the Premier mine. The gem is said  to weigh more than 191 carats, and is  described as a pure white stone, absolutely flawless and measuring two  inches long by three-fourths of an inch  thick, it tapers in breadth from one  and one-fouith inches to three-fourths  of au inch ut the smallest and is valued at $150,000 uncut.  The Premier mine became world  famous in January, 1905, when the  Cullman diamond was discovered  there. This gem, the largest ever  found, weighed 3,032 carats in the  rough. It was cut into smaller stones  and presented to King Edward VII.  by the Transvaal Government. Tha  latest large diamond to be found taken from the Premier mine probably  will rank also among the world's famous gems. -N  An English View of Hardy.

' 'If I had the nack of slinging  ink," said a young society man  from a 'sister   city,   "I believe  I   could    write   a   very   entertaining book entitled 'The Confessions  of a Palmist.'    I used  to     enjoy   quite    a   reputation  as an amateur reader of the palm,  and  frequently   laughed in   my  sleeve at the sensation I created  at social   gatherings.     Without  undertaking to impugn the good  faith of   anybody   else,   I don't  mind admitting that my own performance was   a harmless   fake  from beginning to end���������in fact,  it was started as a practical joke.  It is the easiest thing in the world  to become a drawing room palmist.    All one needs is audicity, a  fairly good judgement of human  nature, and a set of stock phrases.  I   was  especially   successful   in  'reading the past,'   which I did  bv means of   certain   glittering  generalities.    I would study the  subjects palm for   a while and  then say musingly; 'You had a  serious illness or���������er���������accident iu  your boyhood���������I think it was before   you   was   ten   years   old.'  There are very few men who have  not had a serious illness or accident at   that   period,  so I was  pretty safe.   I hit it at least nine  times out of ten, and almost always the subject would give me  a few cues himself, without realizing it.    'Yes,' he would say, in  tone of wonderment,   'I had an  attack of scarlet fever when I was  six.'    'Precisely,'I would rejoin,  'you can see for yourself where  the line of life is badly crossed at  thot   point.'   The important undertaking was another stock revelation of mine that rarely missed  fire.    'You have been meditating  some important   undertaking recently,'   I   would   say.    'I can't  make out exactly what it is, but  it's  something   that   will   have  great bearings on your future.'  Now, every chap under thirty is  I continually meditating   schemes  he imagines to be important aild  believes will have a great bearing  on his future, so that was a shot  which   simply   couldn't   fail   to  score a bull's-eye.    As a rule my  excited victim immediately blurted out the project he had on his  mind and went away convinced  that   palmistry   was   an   exact  science.    'He told me a lot  of  things that nobody could possibly  haye known except myself,' was  the way they usually summed it  up.  "The two  examples   I   have  given will explain my method of  delving in the past,"   continued  the reformed palmist, "and in addition, of course, I read character  and  'foretold the future.'   Both  feats were absurdly easy.   If  I  was dealing with a man, I generally told him that he had 'strong  likes and dislikes;' that he was a  bad  enemy when   aroused;' that  he was 'naturally very sympathetic;'  and   that he 'possessed remarkable willpower.'   Those are  traits that almost  every fellow  privately attributes   to himself,  and, needless to say, is highly delighted th hear them enumerated  by the palmist.   He will promptly admit the correctness of the  diagnosis and wonders how anybody was able to size him up so  acurately by merely looking into  his hand.   1 used to also tell my  subjects,  by the way, that they  were 'inclined to be slightly suspicious by temperment' and would  be 'very hard to deceive.1   Nothing  pleases a man better, when  he is being duped, than to learn  that  he  is   'hard   to   deceive.'  He never fails to confess, modestly, that such is the case, and then  unfolds his ear to hear the rest.  I had a different and more complicated schedule for women, but  the general principal was exactly  the same, and I wont bore  you  with details.   As far as the future  was  concerned, I simply let my  fancy frolic, being careful to lc-  ly far  away   to give   people   a  chance to forget 'em or at least to  get them a trifle mixed.   In that  manner I prevented my chickens  from   coming   home   to , roost. I  Taken  altogether, I made what  the show people call 'a palpable  hit,1 and   when   1   subsequently  tried to explain that it was all a  good natured fake, nobody would  believe me,    Palmistry is a great  art, but it could be practiced just  as successfully if the subject wore  a   pair of boxing  gloves during  the seance. "���������New Orleans Times  Democrat. ���������  facial contortions. At the-close  the audience applauded thunderously; but the old.man set -mute.  "Well," said young Tomkins,  "didn't you like it?"    ���������     .  "Verra good, verra good, no  doubt," nodded the old man, "but  we country folks canna be taken  in so easy as all that; I knew ali  the time he wasn't a-swallowin'  of it.!"  Jags of Joy.  As a   memory of the late Eli  Perkins, somebody  has   recalled  one of, the   humorist's   surprise  stories, and his way of telling it:  "I was on a train going east one  summer night," he says,' "wheu  there was a   wreck.    The train  was derailed and all the passengers were more or less shaken up.  Everybody   in  the sleeping   car  tried to* get out as hnrriedlv as  possible, and in the confusion our  clothing got considerably mixed.  I had worn a pair of white duck  trousers, but I couldn't find them.  Finally I did find a pair of. trousers.    I put them on quickly, but  I  couldn't  leave the   car!    You  see they were not men's trousers,"  Here there   is   always   general  laugh ter, and Perkins looks abou t  in a painted sort way. then goes  on:    "They were boy's trousers."  Not To Be Taken In.  Proudly young Tomkins displayed tbe pi������*-1its of L'lrifien tc  his uncle, fresh from the verdant  country.

His iatbeu  is an Italian landed proprietor and his mother is the daughter of James  Jameson, the famous Irish whiskey distiller.  At eight years of age, Guglielmo showed the first faint buds of promts*  of inventive genius; at twelve his tutor attempted to rob him of one of bitr  devices; at sixteen be was absorbed in chemical, electrical and mathematical  problems; and at twenty he was almost taxing the faith and love of hia  mother with tho seemingly Insane proposition cf attempting to telegraphj  without wires, through hills and forests, across streams and over fields.

It Is Now a Much More Artistic and  Humorous Proceeding.  "Ragging," having lost the greater  part of its ancient ferocity, has, iu  modern days, been elevated to the  rank of a fine art on which any  amount of ingenuity-and invention  can be exercised. In the old days,  says The Manchester Courier, nothing was easier than to punish an objectionable undergraduate by spreading jam all over his books, wrecking  his pictures and crockery, and depositing the fragments in his bed. Sometimes after such a cour-e had been  pursued it was the custom to raise a  subscription .to' offer contemptuous  payment for the damage done. Many  valuable pianos and pieces of- furniture have been before now chopped  into firewood for bonfires.  ���������  Unpopular persons have been punished by the shaving off of half their  moustaches, and frequently disliked  undergraduates, especially teetotallers, have been ducked in beer. Al  these methods are now things of the  past. The modern "raggjr," as an  artist of a high degree of ability and  good nature, -one may be glad tc  think, enters ' more completely into  theso youthful ebullitions of spirit  Some unhappy "fresher" may tmve  quite unconsciously offended against  ' the esprit de corps of his college, aud  the second-year, men, who seem tc  constitute themselves' the peculiar  avengers of outraged college propriety  ���������presumably on uccouut of their recent emergence from the "fresher",  stage���������decide that his rooms must be  "rugged."

Probably he will return to college  to,find his rooms in a condition of  hopeless, though amusing disorder.  Quite a brilliantly lugubrious effect  can be compassed in the first place  by turning all the pictures with their  faces to the wall. One unlucky man  found several thin slices of bread  and butter, carefully cut for afternoon  lea, stuck airily over the panes ot  his window. The bath is found neatly hanging on the wall. All photographs and small ornaments are us  ually discovered in a stack on the top  jf the bookcase, the whole surmounted by a lamp, whose oil vessel has  been filled with water. The bed will,  of course, be unmade, and the sheets  will carpet the floor, while the carpet  will serve as tapestry to the walls,  the coal-scuttle is-filled with water,  the fire is out, and the matches are  carefully damped. The hearthrug  stands rolled up and tied in a neal  cylinder in front of the fireplace,  crowned with a "mortar-board" or a  bowler hat. Books will be dislodged  in time from behind the pictures, and  boots will adorn the ends of the cur  tain po'e.  Finally, a neat lay figure, constructed from the pyjamas and other odd  inents, such as knifeboards, teapots,  cups and saucers, and a mask, will  be seated in any easy chair, smoking  the victim's best pipe. This, if encountered in the dusk, may prove  somewhat disconcerting to the nerves  But the general effect of a modern  "rag" is an expression of bonhomie  No one is any -the worse for the experience.

One does not usually think of leath  er as a material with which engravers  and sculptors could do effective work,  and yet hundreds of years ago amazing results were obtained by artist.-  who had the knowledge and the patience to achieve success. - Collectors  who have devoted their time to searching for leather art work have been  richly rewarded in Spain.  The leather made at Cordova of. doL*  and goat skins gave that city a repu  tation; which -lias-endured until <to-dny.  and this pliable material was doubtless the means of enabling the Span  ish leather workers to excel the craftsmen in other lands.  ���������  During the sixteenth century, when  the Spanish manikin wine jug's" were  made, thc art was at its height. Often  these manikins were of an ironical political character or were satires on  leading ecclesiastical rulers.  These jugs were usually made of  thin wood, wax or cement and were  then covered with leather that had  been boiled to a pulp. The features  were then worked in as desired. -The  leather was allowed , to harden and  was stained black and polished. They  thus became objects of real beauty as  well as curiosities.

But relief from  both ailments, was quickly found in  the old reliable remedy, Dodd's Kidney Pills.

Now why should children, all the  world over, show such a marked preference for Zam-Buk?  Children like Zam-Buk because,- as  soon as applied to a burn, a cut, or a  sore, it stops the pain and then gradually, but surely, it heals. As soon  as the pain of a wound or sore is relieved a child can go on with its play  and leave Zam-Buk to finish off the  healing.  Mothers might look a little more  deeply into the action of Zam-Buk.  First, it is highly antiseptic. As soon  as applied it stops all danger of festering, blood-poisoning, and inflammation. Second, it is soothing. It  cools the wound or sore; allays the  irritation; stops the pain and smarting. Then, thirdly, it stimulates the  cells, beneath the injured part, to  halthy action, and causes the speedy  creation of new, healthy tissue.  Just try Zam-Buk for cuts or burns,  or cold sores, or eczema, ulcers, rashes, bad leg, piles, varicose ulcers, or  any inflamed or: diseased condition  of the skin. Its effect will highly j  satisfy you. All druggists and stores  50c. box, or free from Zam-Buk Co.,  Toronto, for price. Refuse harmful  imitations and cheap, worthless substitutes.  Mrs. H. L.

DOWNING STREET ASSOCIATIONS  Memoirs of the Street Where British  Cabinet Lives.  Sir Robert Walpole, was the first  Prime "inistor who made 10 Downing  st.c his official residence. He refused the offer of the House as a gift.  Lord North, Pitt, Lord Grey, Lord  Melbourne, Disraeli, Gladstone, and  many others have resided here when  in office. It was here that Aubrey  de Vere, the last Earl of Oxford, died;  and it was here, too, that the Earl  of Chatham was taken after his fatal  swoon .n the House of Lords. It is  reported that when Sir R. . Walpole  removed from - his official residence  in Downing Street he found an old account 1 *������ in which his father had  set down hie personal expenses. In  the three months and ten days he  was in London one winter as an M.P.,  he had only expended '������64 7s. 6d.  Among tLe entries in this remarkable  bo-k were small sums for Nottingham  ale; 18d. for dinners; 5s. to Bob  Walpole, afterwards the Earl of Oxford.-  Anothci anecdote is told of a Mr  Stuart, a city coal merchant, who, on  becoming proprietor of The Courier,  newspaper, went to see Lord Grey,  and biuntly offered that Minister the  support of the paper���������which up to  tliDii had advocated, totally different  views���������in exchange for Treasury patronage. Lord Grey indignantly rang  the bell, and told the footman "to  show that gentleman to the door."  it was during the time that Pitt  resided iu Downing Street that "the  Heaven-born Minister," fell in love  with Eleanor Eden, the daughter of  Lord Auckland. Society was much interested in the affair, and it was fully  expected that the engagement would  bo publicly announced.: Pitt, however, explained in a long letter to  Lord Auckland that there were "decisive and insurmountable" obstacles  to the union. Much correspondence  followed. The father described his  daughter as "good, generous, frank,  cheerful, and gentle," and the "fair  prido of our lives." Pitt, in addition  to being in financial difficulties, was  in a delicate state of health, and he  adhered : to his former decision, although there can be little doubt he  had a sincere affection for Miss Eden,  for when the latter afterwards married-Lord Hobart, it is reported that  Pitt's heart was almost broken.  To come to much later times, few  people are aware of'the fact that Mr  Gladstone (to whose ' famous breakfast-parties in Downing Street many  distinguished persons were invited,  and who was generally known as a  strenuous politician) had a jocose and  genial side to his nature, which wa.-  especially attractive. His married life  has been described as one long honeymoon; and in his earlier days he  could .so unbend as to be induced to  sing a song. One of his favorites was  the "Tinker's Song," which had the  following  "giddy"   refrain:���������  A   ragamuffin  husband   and  a  ranti-  poling wife,  We'll fiddle it and scrape it  Through the ups and downs of life.

"Have I?" said tho absent-minded  husband. "Well, don't worry about  that, dear. I'll lix that nil right; I'll  make you another one."

Is beauty skin deep or does it depend on the glow which health alone  can give? Is it due to regularity of  feature or to the gracefulness and  elasticity which accompany health  and vigor?  To.win beauty you must first gain  health. Rich, red blood is the secret.  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is successful  and popular because it forms rich,  red blood and in this way gives gracefulness' to every movement and n  healthful, natural glow to the com-  plexion,-  Thin blood and weak nerver. soon  give one a tired, worn cut appearance. Worry and anxiety show themselves in wrinkles and care"lines. Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food enriches the  blood, restores vigor to the nerves  and drives away headaches and bodily pains.  By filling the nrtories with new, red  blood Dr. Chase's Nerve Food rounds  out the form to healthful proportions,  makes the muscles and tissues firm  and strong, and gives vivacity to  mind and body.

No Surprise to Her  The young man met the-little ten-  year-old sister of the house and said:  "Now, Jennie, I want to tell you  something that I hope you will like.  Do you know thnt at the party last  evening your sister promised to marry  me? Now I hope you will not think  hard of me?"  "Hard of you?" echoed the truthful  little Jennie. "Why should I? That's  what Mamma gave the parly for."  They Live In the Trees.  Human   tree  dwellers  are  not  yet  extinct.    A   Malayan  newspaper  describes an interesting discovery made  in South Canara.   The Kudiyas, living  near Mangalore, include, it appears,  a clan who have become tree dwellers  by necessity.   They live in huts built  amid palm and other-tall trees in order to protect themselves against at-  t cks   of   elephants   and   other   wild  beasts of the jungle.   Their clothing |  consists of the bark of certain kinds oi >  jungle trees, and they subsist on yams j  ani meat.   They are dark skinned and !  noted for their fine physique, the wo- I  men being even more muscular than i  the men, and one of their chief occu- j  pations is  honey  gathering,  a   very <  dangerous employment, since the bees j  of Canara build their honeycombs ou  the treetops, often as much as 120 feel  high.���������Pall Mall Gazette.

However, it  was an inspiration on my part, goin<*  upstairs just  at   that   moment, and  wliile in the corridor I began singing,  which made them  believe 1  was going into the room they were in, aud  consequently frightened them away. 1  knew my voice had done a great deal  for me, but never expected it would  save our house from being robbed."

It  is about time the theological field  was plowed under, and the thistles burned.  As a rule the pettifogging lawyer is a blood relation, to the petty  larceny thief. He uses his profession as a cloak so that he can  pilfer small things without much  risk to his liberty.  Thk meaning of "siwashed"  ia unknown to thc wise men of  the cent belt, and it is a word  that cannot be found in the Bible,  although many of the charactersI get.  Steamboat Mountain.  Some few miles distant, to the north  of Steamboat is Steamboat Mountain  townsite, owned by Messrs Dickie and  Prescott, for which Messrs Bevan,  Gore and Eliot are the agents. Their  title is completed and they have also  sold a number of lots. The company  intends to develop the town to the  extent of building bunk houses and  providing for the accommodation of  travellers. This townsite is also on  the line of the trail.  Before the end of May a third  townsite will be on the market. It  adjoins the Whitworth ranch, and is  the most southerly of the three. It  is beinK bonded ,by a Victoria, syndicate who acquired title from Col. E  S. Topping and associates.  G. W. Morris, who had spent the  last month on Lightning Creek and  the southern -slope of Steamboat  Mountain has returned to Vancouver.  Of the trail he says: "At the  worst point there is still about three  feet of snow but it is going fast. Most  of the road, that is, all but the climb  to the summit and down again, is bare  of snow. It is not soft or muddy except in one or two places, and there  is no difficulty at all now in travelling  all the way. Red Mountain is clear  of snow from base to summit* Steamboat Mountain is clear on the south  side for a thousand feet."  Mr. Morris ran across prospectors  in all parts of the district he visited,  and met a steady stream of them as he  was going out from 7,3-Mile to Hope.  ���������Nugget.  Canadians: Coming Back.  North Portal:���������In addition to  the many settlers for who the sun  dawns on a new land on their arrival at North Portal and over  whom there flutters a strange  flag as they enter the government offices or the immigration  hall, there are large numbers  whom the dawning welcomes  home, and whose eyes light up at  the sight of a flag which was  familiar to them in former years.  The Dominion is this year getting back a great many of her  own sons and daughters, men and  women who have crossed the  boundary formerly and are now  returning to again take up their'  residence iu the land of their  birth. "We are Canadians coming home," they explain simply to  the immigration officials "and we  are glad to get back again."  The majority of them are from  the state of North Dakota., and  many   of    them   never   became  American citissens.    The talents  they have born with them from  their mother   country  have   not  been buried, for they nearly all  bring back to Canada with them  substantial sums of money   and  carloads of valuable effects.   And  it is not for speculative purposes  that they come; they bring with  them their families, their worldly  goods and household effects, and  come with the avowed intention  of   never again returning.    Probably  the   recent unsatisfactory  seasons  in   North   Dakota   may  have something to do with t-his  Canadian exodus but patriotic and  sentimental reasons are in nearly  all cases coupled with the desire  to better their positions on this  side of the border.
