and with this in.his pocket,ho proceed
ed to De Vero Gardens.
"Well.   Duncan,   have  you  brought
any   news?", ,Mabel' asked   anxiously,
when   lovers'   greetings  had   bsea  ex-'
"Indeed 1 liavo, dear, and   somewhat
surprising news too.  It was Gates h'ni
self wliO'Substitutcd the photograph for
Lady Florence's in the album." '
''Mr. Gates! What in the world did
he do it for"-'"
"That is what 1 should very much
like to know myself. As a matter of
fact, he told me he had not do:ia so—
told me emphatically, and without being asked tho question. '. Afterward 1
learned at Scotland Yard that ho-was
the very man who did it."
"How strange! What possible interest could Mr. Keighley Gates have in
the matter?"        _ ' •       "
"That I do not know—in fact, I know
very little of tho man. Ho was n friend
of George's, was he not?"
"An acquaintance—hardly a friend
George met him at some chib or other,
and found him interesting. They, had
one-or tsvo tastes in common—fishing,
big game shooting, and' hunting, aud
■Mr.1 Gates suggested a trip to the Zam-
bezia rfor elephants; but I ,don't fancy
George really liked' the man, or he
woukhhavdjumped at the idea."
"Then   yon   know   of  nothing  'that
would connect   him in the faintest way
with the present trouble?"   ^  '
'   "Nothing ,But stop!   Yon remember
■he was  hero on the day of  tho murder
—it   was   then, indeed, be   noticed tlie
dagger that   led to suspicion falling on
George.    That  day he spoke to George
about his   infatuation for   Harriet Staples, and  urged him to break with her
He had never alluded to the subject be-
■ fore,   and   George  considered   he   had
taken a great' liberty in doing so at all,
nnd   ba  told him so. ' George was very
much' annoyed,   I   remember,   and   he
spoke to me  about it   before he Jeftthe
bouse that evening."
"Did Gates give any reason for mentioning the matter?"
"He said he did it out of pure friendship for George. "
This was certainly newa. Brett knew
nothing against Mr. Gates, except tho
lie he had told him' about the photograph, if the pblieewara to be believed.
But he did not think ho was the'sort of
man to interfere in a mar-tor of this
kind out of pure disinterested friendship.. Still he might bo doing him aii
"Well, it is useless speculating on
bis reasons," said he. "There's the
changing of the photographs to bring it
homo to him, but for the life of me I,
don't see how it is to be done. I can't
very well tax him with it, for he has
distinctly told me he did hot do it."
"Isever mind, Duncan. But we must
bo on our guard against him. If he is
playing false, ho will be sure to betray
himself befoie long."
"I have had a letter from Wray this
morning," said Brett after a pause
"He has sent me a description of Lady

seating himself by her drew her gentlj

."Pawing over the .unclaimed mail is
a favorite amusement among a certain
set of idle youths." said a hotel clerk
yesterday. ■ '.' 'Any   letters  for So-and-,
so?' they will ask, giving an imaginary
name, their object being apparently to
gratify idle curiosity by studying the
superscriptions and  reading the postals.   Last fall an idiot of that type received   a   severe   lesson   here   in   this
house. '   He   made .the   usual   request,
giving rather a peculiar name,  which
he afterward admitted he, had thought'
of on the spur of the "moment.  By a remarkable coincidence"two central oflice
detectives were standing near the desk
at the time, and the name he,gave was
that of a noted crook who-was wanted'
by the police of Chicago very badly.
■   "Without a word more than was necessary they took the young gentleman
by the arm and carried him off to police headquarters.   He was so astonished that he was unable to make a coherent explanation and really presented a picture of guilt. His story at headquarters that he had asked for letters
under an assumed name was regarded
as so improbable that they held  him
until   telegraphic   inquiries   could   be
made.   Of course it turned-out that he
was not the Chicago crook." but he got
the scare of his life, and you may rest
assured that he has dropped that form
of-amusement from"-his indulgences."—

Conveying In a Delicate Manner the
Moral That a Novice Should Practice Well In Private Before Wearing: a- Plnff Hat In  Public.
It was during opera week tbat my
wife said to me, "You must have a
high hat to wear. with your dress
1 looked ag!:ast. 1 had never worn
a high hat.    I had never,wanted to.
"But, my dear," 1 exclaimed. "I'd
look like a blooming jay in a plug hat.
My head isn't the right style for it."
"You can get it shaped," said my
"Well, that I'll never do." I said firmly. "I've worn this shape for, a good
many years and"—
"Stupid!" said my wife. "1 meant
the hat."
Of course  I   knew she did
playing for time.
"Anyway." 1 said, "I couldn't keep It
in order. I'd be forever rubbing It the
wrong way.'   And with this face"—
"Yoii can  have It ironed," said, my
1 stared,at her with drooping jaw.
"Oh,  you   know   well  enough."  said
she, "th'rul  meant the hat." '
She was right.    Of course I knew.
"Well,"  1   persisted,  "up In, Chicago
the   men   wear  golf   caps   with   their
dress suits,, and tan shoes"and tennis
"How do you know?" sharply inquired my wife. She lived in Chicago, before the fire.
"I saw it in the funny columns of
The Sunday Yawp," I said. ' ,
'/Nevertheless," said she. "you'll have
to wear a high hat to the opera.",'
Sho knew she was right.    I wore It.
It was not a pleasant experience.' On
the way to the opera house I couldn't
help a  continual  stooping.    That   hat
looked high enough to brush the gold
leaf off the eternal stars.    When, the
conductor came along,  he  knocked  it
to an, angle that made me iookjike.a
retired bartender.    When I got "out of
the car, I'bumped the hat off against
the door casing.   When I'walked down
the aisle,  I carried  the hat In a   way
that made my wife uudge me and savagely ask if "I was taking up a collection.    -When 'I  put the hat under my
seat, a pretty girl  in t,he seat behind
me Insisted  upon playing a tattoo on
the crown with her patent leather toes.
The opera was the "Marriage of Figaro,"  and  my  wife,   who  had   never
heard the opera, presently whispered,
"That air sounds strangely familiar."
- "Yes. it does." I agreed. ,
"What is it?" she asked.     '
"I think it'is .called 'Where Did You
,Get That Hat?' " 1 replied.
After the curtain'fell I got the hat.on'
wrong end to the front and for n moment fancied ny< head suddenly and
alarmingly swelled. But wife detected
the blunder, and I reversed the chimney pot in such a. hurry that my elbow
knocked off my wife's eyeglasses.,■ In
the car, too. in bowing to a lady frieud
who, I fancied, looked highly 'amused
at seeing me I brought down the hat
so far that it banged Into-the rlowet-
garden on the hat of tlie lady In front
Of me.
When I got home, my wife said.
"You'll have to practice-a little with
that hat before you are really cornme 1)
"Commy II nonsense!" I cried.    "I'm
going to take it back tomorrow."
And I did.
I suppose the dealer thinks I borrowed it just to wear to the opera. But I
don't care what he thinks.—Cleveland

A man who intended to go to an elevated station and catch a Ilarlenj train
was interrupted the other evening by a
sorry louking specimen of the gonus hobo,
who said, "Say, buss, jrive me a nickel."
The oilier was' passing without giving
him an answer when he said:

W.   N    V.   256  GO.,  Spine , years   ago,   Mr.     Hall    was  caught", in a terrific rain storm, ��� while  returning homo on foot, along a coun-  fry road,   a   portion   of   which   wan  ''corduroy,," running through an   extensive swamp.    In   the   darkness, he  got off the road, and stepped into   the  slush   and  mud   through   which   the  road was built.- He sa*ik to the waist,  and'only with the   greatest < difficulty  was ,able   to' rescue    himself.    Next  morning he. was in a raging-fever, rfhe.  result-of the exposure,   which,  would  have  killed  half   a   dozen   .ordinary  men.-   It was several weeks before tie  was well, and when  he "left vhis   bed  his left leg  was  four  inches   shorter  than the right.   .Rheumatism   of   ths  most extreme type   had  followed   his  stormy, adventure,   and,   as   the doctors said, crippled him for life.  Otily those who have suffered   with  Rheumatism can imagine the tortures  he   endured.     Day.    and    night, ��� the  agony,   burned   into' his   nerves   and  muscles, mailing his   life   a  ceaseless  iVround orf torment."   Doctor. after   doctor treated  him.    Some proposed   to  chisel a piece out of the bone   of   tho  leg;   others , said   nothing ��� could   do  him any good.    The, surgical   staff  of  ,the  Western Hospital, and a score   of  visiting physicians examined him and  decided he could never be cured.    Ona  doctor    bled  him,    drawing   away  a  large 'quantity of thick, stringy, dark- '  colored   blood,   heavily , impregnated  with pus.    Even this did no  permanent good.    Liniments, oils, and scores  of   "patent    medicines"    were" tried'  ���--without   avail.    Every   one   believed  there was nothing for it but to   suffer  till the end.    Mr. Hall found   greater ���  and greater   difficulty  e^ery   day,   in  moving about.    To walk a few  yards '  was hard labor.  ( One day recently he read of Dr.  Arnold's English Toxin Pills, and  concluded to try them. He did so,  and was amazed to find that his pains  grew markedly less. He purchased a  further supply of the pills, and used  them. As he did so, his sufferings  ceased entirely ;��strength and flexibility returned to tho once stiff and '  tortured limb, and health came back,  to him in all its vigor.  He is enthusiastic in his praises of  Dr. Arnold's English Toxin Pills,  which did foi" him what the doctors  and all other medicines in Canada failed to 'do���gave him tho power to  walk, gavo him freedom from pain,  cave him strength, health and energy.  Though he is Hearing the full measure  of the three-score and ten years allot- .  ted as a man's life, ho is infinitely  more sprightly, more quick and sura  on his feet, than many a man in the  full flush of manhood.  Taking thoso facts into consideration, his complete recovery is the more  marvellous. Just reflect that the  most skilful doctors in Toronto and  vicinity were unable to do more than  give him temporary relief; that different physicians pronounced his case  utterly incurable, that the staff of a  city hospital failed to find any means  of aid for tho sufferer, and then remember thtit a few boxes of Dr. Arnold's English Toxin Pills made a  now man of him���practically renewed  his lease of life���and say whether  Dr. Arnold's English Toxin Pills are  not deserving of a place in every  household. Remember alsor that Mr.  Hall had given nearly every "patent  medicine" on the market a patient,  fail-".and.faithful, trial before beginning to use Dr. Arnold's English  Toxin Pills and that not one of them  did him'.the slightest noticeable good.  Then say whether or not wo are  justified in claiming that Dr. Ar-'  nold's English Toxin Pills are the  only medicine known to-day that is a  positive cure for Rheumatism. They  are .the only medicine that kills the  germs that cause rheumatism. .This  is the one and only way to cure tha  disease..
