No matter  whether your druggist Is respectabla  or not;- the piasters work just thu  same, which cannot be said of hair  dyes and kiduey cures. The attention  of every civilized being ou earth is  called lo tbe following testimonials.  They are unsolicited.

Only two drafts were used  - on any of them.-and now they tire  ready to go as missionaries to China.  1 shall experiment on 200 more the  oouiing week and hope to empty the  prlsou within a month.

From "J. Dtiggan. Toledo: "I have  been married for forty years to a red  headed woman who bosses the house.  No one c.'in conceive of my suffering.  Besides bossing she smoked and swore  and handled the funds. I Induced her  to try one of your drafts by telling her  It would take the whiskers off her  chin. Only oue draft, and now she Is  the humblest cat on the .Maunice. I  can't get up an argument with her  even after culling her.

After we had jailed him about  forty, times, cracked .his skull every  week or two. fed him on bread and  water and given him up as a bad job  I thought I would try one of your  Magic Neck-Drafts. I was laughed at.  but we tied the kid hand and foot aud  put on the draft and chucked him  Into a cell. In all I have used three  drafts, and I am uot sending for any  more for him.

Then i bought u pock-  age of your drafts, got one ow the back  of his neck, and. io, tbe old man sticks  ut home so tight that he has become a  nuisance.    1  would suggest that von  don't    make   your   drafts   quite   so  strong."  Burglar Gives In.  From Burglar Bill. Philadelphia:  "For twenty years 1 was a cracksman.  Now tital then I killed a man. I sworo  and drank and gambled, und n more  wicked man could not be found hi  America. While suffering from a gunshot wound inflicted by a cop a pal of  mine suggested that I try one of your  drafts to relieve headache. I did so,  and what Is the result?

CHASE'S  KIDNEY-LIVER  PILLS  Experiments are sometimes necessary and almost always expensive. It  is usually wise to let others do the experimenting and profit by their experience.  When it i.s a matter of regulating  the liver, kidneys and bowels and  driving out of the system tlie poisons  which cause -rheumatism, backache,  lumbago and other pains and aches,  experience has proven that Dr.  Chase's Kidney and Liver Pills am  the , most effective treatment available.  They are different from ordinary  kidney medicines in that they rugu-  late the liver and bowels, ns well as  the kidneys, and in this way get at  the very source of trouble.  Let, others experiment' if they will.  This letter shows what expeiimcnting  cost one man, and many have had  ���������somewhat similar experience.  Mr. James Clarke, Maidstone, Sask.,  writes: "I have great pleusure in testifying to the good results I have obtained by using Dr. Chase's Kidney  und Liver Pills. For four years I suffered from rheumatism in my shoulders -and back and could not lift my  arms above my head, I tried nearly  all the advertised remedies. Lots of  them were to be suro cures, but none  of them gave me relief.  "I was then persuaded to use Dr.  Chase's Kidney and Liver Pills and  soon found relief. By following up  this treatment a thorough cure was  brought about and for six months I  have been free from rheumatism. It  cost me at least one, hundred dollars  in experimenting before using Dr.  Chase's Kidney and Liver Pills, which  cured me at the cost of 25 cents a  box."      -   ,  You can be suro of definite, beneficial results when you use Dr. Chase's  Kidney and Liver Pills.

Tlie    case    of    Airs'.    Henry  Britton, 1284 Alexander Avenue, Winnipeg,   Man.,   adds   another   striking  proof  to  the truth  of this  assertion.  Mr.   Britton   writes   as   follows   concerning   his   wife's   long  illness   and  ultimate cure through the use of Dr.  Williams, Pink Pil.s.   "It is a simple  thing to    recommend    Dr.    Williams'  Pink  Pills,  and yet  it is diflicult to  express fully    one's    heartfelt   gratitude for such a marvellous   remedy,  as they have   restored   my   wife   to  health  and strength    after    the   best  effoit.-  of the medical  fraternity  had  foiled.    For years  prior to our coming  to  Canada,  and  since  that  time  up  to   about three    years    ago,    my  wife  had  been  subject  to severe  illnesses from what   the   doctors   said  was chronic anaemia.     She   was utterly   and   entiiely   helpless,   and   so  weak   that  she   had   to   be   lifted   in  and    out    of    bed    for   weeks   at   a  stretch.    The trouble was aggravated  by    recuneiit rheumatism  aud  heait  trouble.     She    had    no    appetite or  strength   for   anything.     I   employed  the    best    medical    attendance   and  nurses   procurable.    The  doctor gave  hot- tonics and ordered  beef tea and  wine.   The tonics and medicine would  relieve her for a time, .and then she  would  slip  back  once more  into  the  old    state���������hut    worse    if    anything.  Then we began giving her advertised  remedies, but all seemed of no avail.  One evening while reading a newspaper  I  happened  to see an  advertisement of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.   It  told the case of a young woman who  had been a great sufferer from anaemia, and who testified to having boon  cured through the use of these Pills.  The case seemed    to    desciibe    very  closely the symptoms of my wife, and  although I had pretty nearly lost all  hope of her ever being well again, 1  decided  to get a supply of the Pills  and urged her to use them.   My wife  was thoroughly disheartened, and said  she expected it was only another case  of money thrown away.   However, she  began taking the Pills, and I  thank  God she did, for after she had used  them for a time, she felt they    were  helping her.   From that time on her  appetite came back, her color began to  return, and she who had been looked  upon as a helpless invalid began to  take a now interest in life.   She continued taking the Pills, and  through  them    her    health   continued  to  improve, until ttt last we were able  to  heartily    coifgratuhite  her  upon    her  complete  restoration   to  health. Some  three years have since passed, and in  that time she has never been bothered  in  the slightest degree  with  the ^old  trouble.     The   cure   has   astonished  everyone who knew  how ill she had  been, and we acknowledge with heartfelt thanks our gratitude to Dr. Williams'    Pink    Pills    which    literally  brought her ���������buck'to-health-from the  brink of the grave."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure such  cases as this in just one way���������they  actually make new blood, 'which fills  the depleted veins and brings new  strength to every nerve and every  organ in the body. Nearly. nil the  everyday ailments of life come from  poor or watery blood, and it is because Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make  new- blood that they cure anaemia,  indigestion, headaches, sideaches and  backaches, rheumatism, neuralgia,  general weakness and the ailments  that growing girls and women do not  like to talk about, even to their doc-  JOHN BULL AND TRUSTS.  Americans Who Found the Tight Little Island Too Much for Them.  What is a trade-war?  It is a battle in which no blood is  spilt, but wh.-oh can bear results every  bit a-s serious as those which occur on  the actual field of war. Two great  organizations are pitted against each  other. Silently, with scarcely a sound  above the scratching 'of a pen, the  more powerful faction presses its opponent back, and upon the issues depends the welfare of thousands, many  of whom have no idea "that any kind  of battle is being fought at all. '  In the present trade-war between  Lord Cowdra'y and the Standard .Oil  Co., John Bull is standing in the ring  with Uncle Sam, and is knocking him  out. They are fighting over the great,  oil-fields of Mexico, and, although this  Standard Oil Co. have used every  means "in their power to outwit their  English rival, and even employed  spies to shadow him in Now .York,  they have found theit match. The  British Oil magnate is beating them  at their own game.  The Standard Oil Co. have not hnd  many such reverses. lorty-five years  ago, Mr. John D. Rockefeller realized  the great possibilities that lay in oil.  formed a-syndicate, and proceeded to  buy up every rival syndicate. He often paid absurdly high prices to his  rivals in order to gain absolute control. If they refused to sell, he either  retailed oil in their districts at a loss,  or else actually gave it away, until  they were forced, through lack of business, to admit themselves beaten.  A particularly interesting tn'do-wnv  was that fought recently between  t'io K-x'lish and American tobacconists. The American Tobacco' Co. was  one of the most formidable syndicates  that ever threatened our chalky cliffs.  It was an.amalgamation of five separate companies, which, previously,  hud tried "to cut each other's throat*  in thoir own country. They had pluc  ed wonderful "Surprise Packets" anJ  other advertising dodges, upon thu  market. Thoy had blazoned the walls  with enormous posters. One company  had spent $1,500,000 annually in advertising its principal feature, "Battle  Axe Plug," the price of which under  went tremendous reductions. For the  small price of fivepence, the American  elastic-jawed chewer could buy a plus-  of "Battle Axe" three inches broad,  over half-an-inch thick, and a foot  long.  But when these old rivals bando.-l  together, und invaded England under  the banner of The American Tobacco  Co., they found themselves absolutely  out-classed. By offering a bonus ol  ,'$1,000,000 a year for four years to all  the English retailers who. would sup-  plv their cigarettes, and nobody else's,  at" a certain low figure, they hoped  to get the entire monopoly of the tobacco custom in England. Before  tin- temptation had spread too far.  he v. ever, the English tobacconist-.  joined forces, and formed themselves  into The Imperial Tobacco Co. The  Americans, instead of dealing with a  host of small, independent merchant-,,  found themselves face to face with a  solid organization representing almost  the entire tobacco interest of the British Isles. So they packed up their  cheap cigarettes, and took the next  boat home.  But,the matter did notjsnd there.  The tobacconists who had been promised their bit,' bonuses, and who had  received only one half year's payment,  *uec. the American Company for the  balance. At the first the Americans  reiused to pay, arguing that, as their  ompany had been liquidated, their  liabilities had also ceased to exist. A  test case was decided against them,  however, and they wished more than  ever that they had left the English  bull-dog alone.���������London Answers.  Toole's   Tears.

The athletic parson is no rare character in these-modern days. In fact,  it is nothing unusual to see a clergyman of the congregation leading the  young men in the sports and healthy  amusements. More than fifty years  ago, such a course would have been  regurded with douotful eye. In a  recent publication, "John Sanderson  the First," the author tells of how  Mr. R. S.-Nelles, who was principal  of Newburgh Academy und afterwards chancellor of Victoria University, was grievously misunderstood  because he insisted on sharing the  boys' games of ball and hockey. As  he was a local preacher of the Methodist Church, some of ' the church  authorities summoned him before  them to account for his interest in  "dangerous and soul-destroying"  amusements. The pastor, Mr. Sanderson, who was a genial Irishman,  was in sympathy with the accused  and waited until the prime mover  against him had spoken.  "You will hardly believe it," said  the pastor referring to the chief accuser, "but I have at hand proof that  in the evening of the clay of his last  visit to Napanee, he bought a ticki-t  for the circus, and, with his hat  drawn over his eyes', so that he might  not be recognized, slipped into the  big tent and enjoyed right heartily  the whole performance, trapeze, ballet-dancers and all. And this is the'  man who would hound our brother  Nelles to the death of his well-earned  Christian reputation! Brethren. I  ask for another motion." Needless  to say, the young local preacher was  exonerated und the" hypocritical accuser was brought to shame. It was  also disclosed that Mr. Nelles had  taught the boys to play ball in a  Christian spirit.  Hazing Him  "Mr. Chairman," said the new member of the literary club, "I move you,  sir "  "I rise to a point of order, Mr.  Chairman," interrupted one of the  other members.  "State your point of order."  "The gentleman says '1 move you,'  It is not only out of o;der, but utterly  absurd for a man of 114 pounds to  talk of 'moving' a chairman who  weighs 300."  "The point is well taken!" roared  the presiding oflicer, bringing his  gravel down with a resounding thud.  The gentleman wiil merely 'move' or  take his seat."���������Chicago Tribune.   -  Jolted Him Probably  A professor at Cornell university, in  some disagreement with its head, was  walking over, the campus deeply absorbed in brooding thought. He  bumped ' into something, quickly  raised his hat and said:  "I humbly beg your pardon," lifting his eyes in time to see only a  cow.  The next day, even more absorbed  onthe same subject, he collided again.  "Get out of the way, you old cow!"  he exclaimed and looked angrilv up  into the livid face of the wife of the  president.���������Circle.  * A Secret Tragedy  An Atchison woman called up a  friend over the telephone this inoining  und when she heard a response asked,  "Is this Mrs. A.?" The answer was  inaudible. "I want to tell you a great  secret, Mrs. A.," the woman said, and  for the next fifteen minutes she poured out her heart. Then when she stopped-.to get her breath a reply came  over the line: "This isn't Mrs. A. I  will call her."���������Atchison Globe.  The Origin of the Old Saying, "Rob-  *   bing Peter to  Pay Paul."  The greatest landmark in London  is doubtless St. Paul's. Its massive  outline and lofty towering dome,  whether seen from the busy street or  the quiet river constitute a charac-K  teristic feature and form a picture"  which out of countless spectacles  and the blur of seemingly endless  traffic most visitors take away with  them as the predominant impression  of the greatest city in the world.'  It is, however, to Westminster Abbey that the tourist naturally turns  when he' desires to see a standing  embodiment of antiquity and the  greatest of the British Empire. It is  more than COO years older than St.  Paul's. Founded in 1065 by the gentle King, Edward the Confessor, it  saw in the following year the coronation of Norman William and the  establishment of the present royal  line. -Filled with the tombs of kings'  and poets, warriors and statesmen,  of prelates and philosophers, it appeals alike to the memory and the  imagination and arouses an interest  that goes on increasing with the flow  of time.  Yet (says a writer in The Washington Post), of the hundreds of  thousands of foreigners who visit  Westminster Abbey annually, it is  safe to say that but an infinitesimal  minority is aware of the proper style  and title of the venerable pile. Nor  is this strange, for the British people  themselves have in the long lapse of  ages and in the vicissitudes which  the ages have brought ceased to remember it. The late Dean Stanley,  who loved the glorious old church  with a great love, once remarked thut  thero aro probably but few Englishmen who care to be reminded that  the full title of Westminster Abbey  is the "Collegiate Church, or Abbey  of St. Peter."  Stanley also adopted the opinion  generally held -hat the proverb "Rob.  bing Teter to pay Paul" took its  origin from the diversion of certain  of the abbey estates about 1550 from  their original purpose to the benefit  of the old St. Paul's. This view  may, however, reasonably be doubted, for the saying "Crucifying Paul  to redeem Peter" is traceable as far  back us the twelfth century, and the  phrase "Robbing St. Peter to clothe  St. Paul" is found in 1515, and a  similar locution occurs . in early  ������������������French.  The form of the expression now in  vogue was solidified and rendered  current by the agitation started in  the city of London proper, us distinct  from the city of Westminster, where  the abbey stands ��������� that the great  Earl of Chatham should be buried  in St. Paul's. To deprive the abbey,  in favor of its younger rival, of the  distinction of enshrining the remains  of the greatest statesman tlmt in her  rough island story, England has produced would be to rob Peter to pay  Paul with a vengeance, and the  taunt was " so hvely bandied about  that the peculiar form of verbiage  has ever since had an abiding place  in the English language.

Queen   Mother's   Kindness.  Lord Tennyson, the late poet laureate,  used.to relate  a story showing  tho thou^htfulness   of   Queen   Alexandra.    It was on' tlie occasion of a  voyage with Mr. Gladstone, and many  distinguished  people  were on  board.  Tennyson,  as related  by  a  friend of  his,   read,    "The   Grandmother"   on  board because the Princess of-Wales  asked for it.   "I read it," said Tenny-  in a cabin on deck.   The princess sat close to" me at one side and  a  young   lady   whom   I   didn't   know  on the other. The wind came through  an  open   window,  and    the   princess  whispered,  'Put on your hat'; but I  said  I  ought, if   possible,   to  muke  myself   balder   than   ever   before   so  many royalties.   She said again, 'Oh,  put it on !* so I did, and I heard afterwards that the King of Denmark's  court fool, who was in the hackcround  (they  reully kept   a court fool), remarked 'He may be laureate, but he  has    not    learned   court     manners.'  When 1 was.done the ladies praised  me  and   I   patted  the  unknown  one  on  the  back  by  way  of reply,   and  presently  I  found that  she  was the  Empress  of   Russia."

To communicate with one another,  gypsies now use letters���������and they Use  the telegraph, too, when nccesotirv--  especially in this country. But the  modern Romany also follows the  "patteran," tracing the footsteps, or  wagon tracks, of his friends on the  road by the same method employed by  his ancient prototype, rending directions where no words are written as  clearly as the goigio does a roadside  iignboard. But the patteran can be  read by the gypsy only���������it i3 hidden  and secret, although it may be in  plain sight, as a signboard is open  and public. The patteran may be  formed of stick? or stones or grass,  plarcd cross fashion at the parting  of roads in such manner that only a  gypsy would instantly notice and un-  ui-r.stA.iul. To him it means much;  f):st of all the direction taken by  Romuti}  pit. ueceisojrs.  Birth Taxes In England.  The reign of Henry VIH. should  have been a good ono for the burVrs.  Men were then taxed for wearim-  beards and the tax was graduated  according to the social standing of  the wearer. A sheriff at Canterbury  paid three shillings and fourpenco  for the privileuc of wearing whiskers.  Queen Elizabeth was even more  stringent. She decreed a tax on C"erj  beard  of  over  two  weeks'  growth.  At one time there wns a tax levied  on hitths. a sliding scale being  adopted. The child of a duke cost its  father $150 in 1095, while the tax was  only two shillings on the child of a  commoner. Widowers and bachelors  also  were taxed.
