He 'got  off the train and was being greeted by  hi3 brothers and -children, when he  noticed that one of his trunks had not  been removed from the baggage car.  In a moments ������excitement he rushed  into the car to look ior" the trunk, but  scarcely had he done so when the train  started up. The trunk was buried  undei a lot of,, other baggage and  trunks, and Mr. Desaulnier 'gave up  the search arid going to the, side door,  jumped, out.

However, it is expected'to  meet of "the requirments of "the town  for some years to' come. The building  will be fitted with a court -room/arid a  jail attached fitted up with four cells.

HEROINE OFTHE TRANSVAAL
A   DnrinK   Hid*   ot   Thirty   Mlleii   to
•Warn Cronje.
Alice Van 'Aarndt is the. heroine of
the Transvaal. It was she who during
tbe terrible siege preceding Cronje's
surrender rode over'the" veldt for ao
consecutive hours and gave the alarm
to tlie general that resulted in the retreat of bis brave but depleted army.
The brave little Dutch woman relates some of her experiences In the
war as follows:
"We were',at Iidcrlachen when We
first beard that war was certain. We
were all together incognito—the queen,-
her mother, my sister and my husband.
1 had been married only a few months
and was very, very happy.
"One norning while we were playing
tennis a telegram was handed to my
husband. He requested permission of
the' queen to go and send a reply, and
one of the other men took his place in
the game. As soon as 1 could I hurried away and into the hotel and-found
my husband throwing some things in(a
great hurry into a traveling bag. ' ■
"fnstantly I realized what that telegram meant ,
■ " '1 am going) too,^ 1 said, for it was
suddenly made perfectly clear to me
without my being told that Piet was
going home and that the war had begun."  ,
After rg.ipblng their home in .South
Africa Mr.' Van Aarndt' offered his
services to President Kruger, who sent
hi in on to Grouje. Mrs. Van Aarndt
slald for a time In Pretoria and then
went t<J. her farm on the border be-
tweeu Cape Colony and the Orange
Free State. It was one Sunday morning that she' heard the coming of'the
Hritisli soldiers, who stopped at her
place for a rest of five hours, .as they
told her, after taking the breakfast
from the stove that (he maids, were
preparing. Very quickly the bright little woman realized that they were
planning a surprise for the'Boer soldiers, aud she racked her brain, with

Sun  titu.-ui*.
The connection between the aurora,
sun spots and magnetic disturbances
has never been explained, but many
observations have shown that it definitely exists. The outbreak of a cyclonic* storm on the sun with the formation of spots is immediately registered in every magnetic- observatory
on the earth. Sometimes the disturbance of terrestrial conditions is very
marked.   '
For example, on Feb. l.'l, 1S02, a
great spot. aceom'"'.iHed by enormous
cyclonic disturbances, burst forth on
the sun's surface. That night a magnificent aurora was visible all over the
northern half of the United States and
in many parts of Europe. Telegraphing was carried on between New York
ami Albany without batteries..so strong
were the earth curients. The telegraph system of Sweden was completely paralyzed, and in Russia much
difficulty was experienced with the telegraph lines. At the"K.e\v observatory
in England the magnetic needle swung
two degrees out of Its normal posfition.
All this has furnished physioiKi*?'"ai*d
astronomers it fruitful field for study,
and a vast masfj of - observations has
been accumulated, but so far no satisfactory' explanation of the mysterious
bond of sympathy between solar and
terrestrial inflj ■lu-es has been forthcoming, nor d.»s any one yet know the1
true nature of the aurora. '

Bursting open the carriage door, in a

,  . She  Liked  Variety.
She is'a very nice little girl, and yet
she has an imagination so vivid that
people can't help wondering once in
awhile what is'going to become, of it.
The little girl can and does telb the
most marvelous tales, and when she is
creproved she is entirely complacent
and cannot see that her eii'eetive inventions are anything more than jokes
One of these' she told to an interested
neighbor,' at whose house she called
freeuiently.
"How is your mamma, dear?" asked
the neighbor one morning when the little girl made her appearance.
"She is very sick." answered the little girl earnestly. "Nelly (her sister)
and I were up with her all night. We
called the doctor." But when the kind
neighbor went in haste to see her sick
friend she found her in every respect
as well as ever.
"Why did you tell  kind  Mrs.  Blank
such a story about me?" asked mam
ma1 seriously of  her  little girl  at  the
first opportunity. ,
"Well, 'mamma." snid the little girl,
with a toss of her curls. "Mrs. Blank
asks me every single morning how you
are, and I get tired of telling her that

extent from the depredations of tlie
former one, he determined to try the
new boy's honesty at oiu-e. He therefore plac.d a $,"> note under a weight
on his desk and walked out without a

later, the note was gone, and half a
dollar in silver had taken its place.

The empress dowager of China is now
about 00 years old and for the last 40
years has exerted an all powerful influence in directing the affairs, of China.
She was the second wife of the emperor,
and because she bore him a son and the
first wife did not she took precedence.
Among the many fads of Emperor William is his passion for collecting boots
and shoes- of famous people, his collection of these particular articles of attire
constituting a fitting pendant to his huge
museum of uniforms. The collection is

Table oilcloth is a sanitary substitute'
for wall paper in tho kitchen.
Have all your tins labeled clearly, so
that no time is lost in taking lids off, and

Have sufficient, but not more than necessary, cloths in use, and wash these out
when' they are done with for the day.
They will then serve for several days
without boiling. -
Kitchen cutlery should be provided in

There never was, and never will be, a universal panacea, in one remedy, for all ills to
which flesh is heir—the very nature of many
curatives being such that were the germa of
otht-r and dillercntly seated diseases rootc-d
in ^e system of the patient—what would
relieve one ill in turn would aggravate the
other. We have, however, in Quinine Wine,
when obtainable in a sound, unadulterated
state, a remedy for many and grievous Ilia.
By its gradual and judicious use the fraileat
systems are led into convalescence and
strength by the influence which Quinine exerts on nature's own restoratives. It relieves
the drooping spirits of those with whom, a
chronic btate of morbid despondency and
lack of interest in life is a disease, and, by
tranqnilizinfc* the nerves, disposes to sound
and refreshing sleep—imparts vigor to the
action of the blood, which, being stimulated,
courseo throughout the veins, strengthening
the healthy animal' functions of the system,
thereby making activity a necessary result,
strengthening the frame, and giving life to
the digestive "organs, which naturally demand increased subttance—result, improved
appetite. Northrop & Lyman, of Toronto,
have given to the public their superior Quinine Wine at the usual rate, and, gauged by
the opinion of scientists, this wine "approached .nearest perfection of any in the
market.    All druggists sell it.

DYSPEPSIA  AND   HEADACHE,
An Elderly Lady Tells of, Her Cure Through
the'Use of Dr. Williams'Pink Pills After
a Score of Other Remedies Had Failed.
Dyspepsia causes more genuine distress than "most diseases that uflhet
mankind. In this country from one
cause or another, its victims are numbered by the hundreds of thousands,
and those olrlicted always feel tired,
worn out aud miserable, and are subject to fits of melancholy or ill temper
without apparent cause. It is obvious
that the human body, in order to perform its functions, must be properly
nourished, and this cannot be done
when the food is improperly digested.
Those who soffer from indigestion
should exercise care as to diet, and only
easily digested foods should be taken.
But more than this is required—the
blood needs attention iu order that the
stomach may bo strengthened, and the
secretion of the gastric juices properly
carried on. There is no other medicine
offered the publio that will act so
prooiply and effectively as Dr. Williams' Pink "Pills. Proof of this is
given in the case of. Mrs. F. X. Doddridge, St. Sauveur, Que. Iu conversation with a reporter Mrs. Doddridge
said: —"For quite a number of years I
have been a terrible sufferer from dyspepsia, accompanied by the sick headaches that'almost invariably come with
this trouble. I suffered from terrible
pains iii:'the stomach, bloating and
belching wind. All food seemed to
disagree .with me, and as a result of,
the trouble,; I was very much run
down, and at times I was- unable to do
even light house work. I am sure I
tried a score of different medicines,
but without success, and as I am1 sixty
years of age, 'had come to believe that
it was hopeless to expect a cure. A
friend who had used Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills with good results, urged me to
try this medicine, and iny husband
brought home a couple of boxes. Bef-
fore they were finished I felt much
better,, and we then got another half
dozen boxes, and these have, completely
restored my health, and I not only feel
better tbau I have done for years, but
actually feel younger. I very cheerfully recommend Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills to similar sufferers.
If your dealer does hot keep these
pills," they will be sent postpaid at 50
cents a box, or six boxes for $2.50 by

They were finally  taken off by a man-of-war, which  landed them at Bombay.     There-.the  , mate was (taken sick and sent to the hospital, and while in hospital he-was visited by Mir. Bradley.   Mr. Bradley, who  had'once been befriended by tlie boy'a  father, said that the bark he was on  was abomt to sail for New York, and he  undertook ��������� to deliver the, little follow  to his friends.   But now the poor boy  was again on Jiis way to ihe other side  of the world.  "While Mx. Bradley was finishing his  account of 3xw he came by tho boy,  Capt.

Then  the captain rose up, paloand trembling',  and asked the name of the sliip.   When  Mr. Bradley gave the name of the sliip  that was run down, and said that, the  boy's father was Capt Wilson, the skipper staggered back, ancl then   rushed  intotheaf tercabin as if he had gone mad:.

An hour later I weaxt into  the after cabin for seme thing, and I  saw the captain leaning over the boy  who was fast asleep.-    The   captain  looked.up, and I noticed that his eyes(  were tred, as if be had fecit crying hard.

If one of  them was the least bit sick, the captain  would go into the forecastle and look  ul'ter kirn as tenderly as any nurse. And  when the weather was bad, he would  not let the" mates make the men do any  work tha t w asn't really necessary. The  mates used to make fur-, of the oaptain  behind his back for being so considerate  of his men; but'somehow I thought it  was a good trait in. hi pi.  "I began to watch the o*��;tain closely,  and I soon made up my mind that there  was some mystery about that rrian.  Once on a pleasant evening I came on  deck and saw the captain looking at the  red sunset with tears in His eyes* Another time, when I thought ho was on  deck, J. went into the after cabin for  eomething, and I found him there.  What do you think: he was doing ? Why,  he was sewing, and crying into the  bargain, 'They are right in calling you  the old maid captadn.'"&irjka.I,   "  '���"  "The mate, J-iftvWood, was a tall, ���flno-  looking down-easter- The captain  seemed to like hir/v fcnt I thought" how  much he must envy? vi>* size and strength.

You >see, I was engaged  to be the mate of another mate; and  that- mate, poor fellow, was lost at sea  a few years aftetrward. Although the  captain didn't seem to caxe much about  me, he didn't fancy the mate's taking a  liking to me.   That used to puzzle me>  "One morning when we wore in the  South Pacific, some one cried out that  there was a smell boat with several  people in it in sight on the lee bow. We  bore away for the boat, and pretty soon  it -was alongsid<s the ship. Five men aud  a little boy climbed up from the boat to  our deck, and we gave, them a warm welcome. The boy couldn't have been over  eight years old. He was a bright-looking little fellow, with long early hair.  Capt. Ilarris- took to hini at once, lie  carried tho child into the after cabin  and put him in his own berth, and look  him something to eat, while the rescued  men were telling us bow they came to be  in the the open boat. They belonged to  a bark which 'was bouud to New York,  but had sprung a lenk and had foundered the day before. The crew leit the  vessel in two boats just before she went  down, but when eho did go under she  .;-vamped one of the boats, and the captain aud seven men. were thrown insto  the water and drowned. The other boat,  with the mnte in charge, managed to  keep afloat until we came up with it.  '���The mate of the wrecked vessel, Mr.  Bradley, war- a gray-Lai red, rough-looking man, but he seemed io have a kind  lie-art. Early in the evening, when he  was pitting in the forward cabin with  the :x- *ond mate and myself, he. told us  that the little boy, -who was still in. the  aVTor cabin with Capt.. Harris, luid been  shipwrecked twice before. The Jittle  fellow was the son of a sea captain, and  had been going to sea with hlo father  and mother ever since lie was born.  About four yearr. before, when thoahip  on which this seagoing family were,  was nearing the English channel, a  heavy fog set in. The second mate was  in oh-artrc of the deck, and the captain,  with hip wife and" boy and the mate,  were at dinner. The captain's wife happened to think oi something in the galley that she wanted, and she went for-  v, ard for it. Just then a big steamer  doomed up suddenly in the fog, and,  ������.. ihout any warning, fitruck the ship  ._f: and smrushed in thecabin.

Mr.  Bradl ey jumped at tho chance, and when  his-men were all ready to leave pur  ship, he looked arotu.d for the boy.  We found the little fellow in the cabin,'  where ,he was being petted by Capt.o  Harris. The captain made a gjreat outcry when Mr. Bradley said that the  boy would have to go with him. _. Out  skipper begged hard for the youngster,  but Mr. Bradley said-that"he would  have to take him to his friends. Mr.  Bradley was about to I ead the y oungster  out of the cabin, when Capt Harris  fell' on' his knees and put his arms  around, the boy." -Then he looked tip  to Mr. Bradley and said:  '" .'You must not take him. I am his  father!f     "' " -     ,  '"His father!' replied Mr. Bradley.  'What doyou mean ? Why, I knew Capt,  Wilson myself, He "was at least ten  years older than you, and was a large  man' into the bargain. Come, let me  have the boy!'  *'��� !No, no/ cried Capt.' Harris, press-'  itiQ the little fellow mill closer to him.  '1 may not be his father, but I am his���'  " 'Don't say you're hia mother,'  sneered Mr, Bradley.  "''Yoa, X am his ja&tRerl' 7?&a tha se-  ply,  "And with ihet Capt. Harris pulled  off the heavy black beard I mentioned.  There was no d^ubt about it. The captain had a woman'scface, and not a bad-  looking one, either. Mr. Bradley started back in astonishment, and cried:  " 'You don't mean to say you are  Capt.

My  husband! and child wero given tip for  lost, although I begged the people to  return and search tlie wreck for them.  They would have done i t, but the steamer could not find the wreck in the fog,  and it was supposed that she had foundered immediate-ly after we left her.  I went home to my friends. My husband had left very little money, and I  found that I should have to work for a  living. I didn't caro to hire out as a  housekeeper. I had learned navigation  thoroughly from my huslxuid, and was  well fitted to take charge of a ship. I  went to a ship owner who wa.s an oid<  friend of my husband's,' and told him  just how things stood.. lie thought  that tinder the circumetances I couldn't.  do beter than dress up as a man ond go  to sea ns a captain. He found me a ship,  and I've been a skipper ever silica And  now no one is going to fake my hoj  away from me.'  " 'That they ain't,' said good-hearted  Mr. Bradley, who then kissed the boy  and shook hands with us all. In five  minutes he and his men were on their  way to the big clipper, and our skipper,  with her arm around the boy, was leaning against the taff rail waving her hand  to them.  "Now I understand the captain's liking for Mr. Wood, our mate-. She was  in love with him, and of course she was  a little jealous of me. The whole mystery about Capt. Harris was accounted  for.  "One evening some weeks afterward,  wliem we were in the Indian' ocean, 1  glanced through the after cabin door,  .".nd v hat doyou think J saw?
