Murphy, general traveling passenger agent of the Canadian Pacific's Western lines, with  headquarters at Winnipeg says:  "While it was the original plan  to take off the Soo-Spokane fast  train during the winter, the business has so far exceeded the anticipations that the officials of the  company have decided to continue  this service between Spokane and  St. Paul'the" year round.   "' ' *  "The Spokane International has  handled a large volume of passenger business between Alberta  points and Spokane since the  opening of the road. It has been  the means of bringing many people from the Canadian side to  Spokane. Before the line was  opened peoplejn Southern Alberta  regarded Spokane as a place remote, but now a trip to Spokane  is no more of an undertaking  than travel between Vancouver  and Seattle. With the improvements completed and in progress  on the Crows Nest branch the  running time will be considerably  diminished."

(Continued)  CHAPTER III.  It was Guy wfyo received her, Guy  who pointed to a chair, Guy who  seemed perfectly at home, and, naturally enough, she took him for Dr.  Holbrook, wondering who the jother  black-haired man could be, and~if he  meant to stay in there all the while.  ., It would be very dreadful if he did,  and in her agitation and excitement  the cube root was in danger of being  altogether forgotten. Half guessing  the cause of her uneasiness, and feeling more averse than ever to taking  part in the matter, the doctor; after  a hasty, survey of her person, withdrew into the background, and sat  x where he could not be seen. This  brought the short dress into full view,  together with the dainty little foot,  nervously beating the floor.'  "She's very young," he thought;  ���'too young, by far," and Maddy 'a  chances'of success were beginning to  decline, even before a word1 had been  spoken.,,..''    _  How terribly still it was for the  time during which telegraphic communications were silently passing between Guy- and the doctor; the latter shaking his head decidedly, while  the former insisted that_ he should  do his duty. Madeline' could almost  hear the beatings of her heart, and  -only by counting and recounting the'  poplar trees growing across the street  could she keep back the tears. What  was h<? waiting for, she wondered,  and. at last, summoning'all her courage, she lifted her great brown eyes  to Guy, and said,' pleadingly:  / "Would you be so kind, sir, as to  -Win?"    ,- ,  "Yes, certainly,-"1 -and electrified by  that young, bird-like voice,' the sweet"-  - est save one he had ever heard, Guy  knocked down from the pile of books  the only one at all appropriate to the  occasion, the others being as far beyond what was taught in the district  schools as^his clnssical education was  beyond Madeline's common one.        .  Remembering that the -teacher of  whom he had once been for a week  a pupil, in the town of Framingham,  had commenced operations by sharpening a lead pencil.;so he now sharpened a similar one, determining as  far as he could-to follow that teach-,  "erJs example. Maddy counted every  fragment as it fell upon the floor,:  wishing so much that he would commence, and' fancying that it would  not be half so bad to have him approach her. with some-one of the terrible dental-instruments lying before  her, as.it was to sit and wait as she  was waiting. .Had Guy, Remington  reflected a little, he would never hove  consented to do the" doctor's work;  but, unaccustomed to country usages,  especially tho^e pertaining to schools  and teacher^! he did not consider  that it> mattered which examined tnat  young girl, himself or Dr. Holbrook.  Viewing it somewhat in the light of a  joke, he rather enjoyed it! and as th*-.  Framingham teacher had first asked  Her pupils their names and ages, so  he, when the pencil was sharpened  sufficiently, startled Madeline by asking her name. -     ���-.. ���  "Madeline Amelia Clyde,"' was the  meek reply, which Guy quickly recorded.  Now, Guy Remington intended no  irreverence; indeed, he could not tell  what he did intend, or what it was  which prompted  his next query:  '"Who gave you this name?"  '.Perhaps he fancied himself a boy  again in the Sunday school, and  standing before the railing of the altar, where, with others of his age, he  had been asked the question propounded to Madeline Clyde, who did  not hear the doctor's smothered laugh  as he retreated into...the adjoining  room.     ,   ' t  In all her preconceived ideas of this  examination, she had never dreamed  -_ of being catechised.^and^with^a. feel^.  "ing of-terror ns she' thought of that  long answer to the question,  "WhaK  ia  thy  duty   to  thy   neighbor?"   and  doubted her ability to repeat it, she  said: "My1 sponsors, in baptism gave  me the first name of Madeline -Amelia,  sir," adding  as  she paught and  misconstrued   the  strange    gleam   in  the dark'eyes bunt upon her, "I am  afraid  I  have  forgotten  some pf the,  ' catechism; I did not know it waa necessary in order to tench school."  "Certainly, no: 1 do not think it is.  I beg your pardon^" were Guy Remington's ejnculatory replies', as he  glanced from Madeline to the open  door of the adjoining room, where wac  visible a slate, on which, in huge  letters, the amused doctor had written "Blockhead."  There was'something-in Mndoline'.'>  quiet, womanly, earnest manner which  commanded ��� Guy's respect, or he  would have given vent to the laughter wMch���..- was choking him, and  thrown off his^disguise. But he could  not bjjaf. now to undeceive her, and,  resolutely turninc his back upon the  doctor, he ent down by that' pile of  books and commenced the examination  in earnest, asking first her age.  "Going on fifteen." sounded older  to Madeline thnn- "Fourteen and a  half," so "Goin-? on fifteen" was the  reply, to which O-ny responded: "That  is very young. Miss Clyde."      ���  "Yes, but Mr. Green did not mind.  He's the corgmitteeman. He knew  how ' young 1 was," "Madeline, said,  eagerly, her great brown eyes growing large with the look of fear which  came so suddenly  into themY^__ .  Guy noticed' the eyes then, and  thought-them very bright and handsome for brown, but not so bright or  handsome as a certajn pair, of soft  blue, or.bs he knew, and feeling a  thrill of satisfaction that sweet. Lucy  Atherstone wns not obliged to' sit  there- -in that doctor's office to be  questioned by him or any other man,  he.said:; "Of course, if your- employers, are satisfied it is nothing to me,  only :I had .associated teaching with  ���-women much older than yourself.  Wh*at.'is*:logic, Miss Clyde?"  The -abruptness with which he put  the -question. startled Madeline to such  a 'de?Tee: that' she could not positively .fell whether she had ever heard  that, word.' before, much ".less could  she recall its meaning, and so she  answered frankly. "I don't know."  A girl who did not know what logic  was did not know.much, in Guy's estimation, but it would not do to stop  here, and so he asked her next how  jozar cases.-there j^sre in Latin.'.   I  VftiSdf' felt "the"-hSt "brod'cT'ti'flf.-ririg  to her very finger-tips, the examination had taken a course so widely different from her ideas of what it  would probably be. She had never  looked inside a. Latin grammar, and  aeain her truthful "I don't know,  sir," fell on Guy's ear, but this time  there was,a hnlf-desnairing tone in  the vonng voice usually so hopeful.  "Perhaps, then, you can conjugate  the verb Amo," Guv said, his manner indicating the doubt he was beginning to feel as to her qualifications.        '*'..'.  Maddv knew wil what "conjugate"  meant, but that yprb Amo. what could  it mean' and hnd she ever heard_ it  before? Mr. Remington wns waiting  for her; she must sav something, and  witn a'-gn.sp she begnn; <'I nm'o. thou  amoest. he mtio"v' Plural: We amo.  ye or you amo. fhey amo."  Guy looked nt her aghast for a single moment, and then a comical smile  broke all over his face, telling poor  Maddy plainer than conlrl words that  t*he had made a most ridiculous mistake.  "'Oh, sir," she cried, her eyes wear-  ins the look of 'the frichtened hnre.  "it is not right. T don't know what  it means. Tell me, teach me. What  is it to amo?"  To most men it would not have  seemed a very disagreeable task,  teaching young Madeline Clyde "to  amo," ns she termed it. and some  such idea flitted across Guy's mind  ns he thought how pretty and bright  wiis the eager face upturned to his.  the-pure white forehead, suffused  with a faint flush, the cheeks a crimson hue, and the .pale lips parted  slightly as Maddy'apoealed to him  for the definition  of "amo."  "It is n Latin verb, and means 'to  love,'" Guy said, with an emphasis  on the last word, which would have  made Maddy blush had she been less  anxious  and  frightened.  Thus far she hnd answered nothing  correctly,- and, feeling puzzled to know  how to proceed, Guy stepped into the  adjoining room",'to! consult with the  doctor, but he was gone. So, returning, Guy resumed the examination by  asking how, "minus into minus could  produce  plus."  Again Maddy was at fault, and her  low-spoken ..'.'I don't know", sounded  like a wail of despair. Did she know  anything, Guy wondered, and feeling  some curiosity now to ascertain that  fact, he plied her with questions philosophical, questions algebraical, and  questions geometrical, until in an  agony, of distress Maddy raised her  hands deprecatingly, as if she would  ward off any similar questions, and  sobbed out:  "Oh, sir, no more. It makes my  head so diazy. They don't teach -that  in. common schools. Ask me some-  ttihig'I. do know."  ! Suddenly  it  occurred  to  Guy  that  he had gone entirely wrong, and mentally   cursing   himself   for  the   block  head the doctor had called  him, be  asked  kindly: ������Y-'Y.  "What do they teach ? Perhaps you  can enlighten me?"  "Geography, arithmetic/, grammar,  history," and spelling-book,".:. Madeline  replied, untying and throwing off her  bonnet,' in the vain hope that itmight  bringYxelief to her poor, giddy, head,  which throbbed so fearfully, that all  her ideas deemed for the time to have  left her.  This was a natural consequence of  the' high excitement under which she  was laboring, and so, when Guy did  ask her concerning the books designated, she answered but little better  than before, and Guy was wondering  What he should do next, when the  doctor's welcome step was heard, and  leaving Madeline again, he repaired  to the next room to report his ill-  success.        . . Y ��� ������  "She does not  seem to know anything.   The veriest child ought to do  better than she has done.   Why,, she  4l_as^scarcely==anawered=half,=a.=dozen:  questions correctly." '  This wns what poor Maddy heard,  though it was spoken in a low whisper; but every word was distinctly  understood and burned into her  heart's core, drying -her tears and  hardening her into a block of marble.  She knew that Guy had not done her  justice, and this helped to increase  the ..torpor stealing over her. Still  she did not lose a syllable of what  was. saying in the back office, and her  lips curled scornfully when she heard  Guy remark: "1 pity her; she is so  young, nnd evidently takes it so hard.  MaybeNshe's as good as they average.  Suppose we give her the certificate."  Then Dr, Holbrook spoke, but' to  poor, dazed Maddy his words wore  .all a riddle. It was nothing to him  ���who was he that he should be dictating thus? There seemed to be a  difference of opinion between', the  young men, Guy insisting that out ol  pity she should not be rejected; nnd  the doctor demurring on the ground  thnt he ought to be more strict. As  usual, Guy overruled, and seating  himself at the table, the doctor was  just commencing* "I hereby certify������" while Guy^.was bending over  him, when the latter wns startled bv  n hand Inid firmly on his arm, nnd  turning quickly he confronted Made  ''ine.Clyde,-who. with her short hair  pushed from her blue-veined forehead, her face as pale as ashes, snvf  where a round spot of purplish reel  burned upon her cheeks, and her  ayes gleaming like coals of fire,-stood  before  him.  "He need'not write that," she said,  huskily, pointing to the doctor.-"It  would be a, lie. and I could not take  it. You do not think me qualified.

T'do not want������"  Her voice failed her, her bosom-  heaved, and the choking sobs came  thick and fast, but still she shed no  tc'ar, and in her bright, dry eyes there  was a look which made both those  young men turn away involuntarily.  Once Guy tried to excuse her failure,  saying she no doubt was frightened.  She would probably do better again,  ahd might as well aocept the certificate, .but Madeline ..still said no, so  decidedly that' 'further remonstrance  was useless. She-would not take what  she had no right to, she said, but if  they pleased she would wait there  in the back office until her grandfather came back; it would not be  long,   and   she   should    not   trouble  Guy brought her the 'easy-ch*tfir  from the front room and placed it  for her by the window. With a faint  smile she thanked him and said -.  "You are very kind," but the smile  hurt Guy cru'elly, it was so sad, so  full of unintentional .reproach, while  the eyes she lifted to his looked .so  grieved and weary that he insensibly  murmured to himself: "Poor child I"  as he left her, and with the doctor  repaired to the house, where Agnes  was impatiently waiting for them.  Poor, poor little Madge! Let those  smile who may at her distress; it was  the first keen-disappointment she had  ever had, and it crushed her as com  pletely as many an older person has  been crushed by heavier calamities.  "Disgraced for ever and ever," she  kept repeating to herself, as she tried  to shake off the horrid nightmare  stealing over her.

Many .reasons have been advanced  for the prevalence of right-handedness. It is' by some said to be tiie  result of nursing and infantile treatment, to be due to early practice in.-  writing and drawing", to be the outcome of warfare, education, and heredity N* the result of mechanical law  and vother remote causes, according  to The Strand. Sir James Sawyer declares that the preferential use of  the right hand is due to the fact that  in primitive days man' used the right  hand for the purposes. of offence, \ so  as to keep the heart���the vital spot���  as far as possible from the assault of  an adversary. Recent experiments  and observations, however, prove* that  single-handedness is merely the .result  of faulty or restricted education.    '  ..  It is a curious instance of human  contrariness that should one eye, one  ear, or one leg of a child shpw signs  of diminished vigor the parents would  instantly seek the cause of and if possible remedy for that lamentable condition; yet for some inexplicable reason or prejudice the left hand of the  average child is ruthlessly and deliberately neglected, until in mature  years it is an undeveloped, useleapc  and almost .unnecessary^appendage.  Careful observations have shown  that=out=of*=-every���hundred^persons*  born into this world eighty are con-  genitally ambidextrous���that is to say,  they will instinctively reach for an  object with either.hand and only require proper instruction and training  to develop both hands and arms to  an equal degree of strength and. skill.  Of the remaining 20, 17 will be right-  handed, while the other three' will  show a natural bias toward the left  hand. The- cultivation of ambidexterity, therefore, offers no insuper  able difficulties, and the economical,  physiological, and psychological advantages are enormous.  It is said that the Japanese soldiers  can use their weapons -with e*qual  skill in either hand, for they are  trained to be ambidextrous from childhood. At school' theV are taught to  write and draw with both hands. In  drawing and painting no supporting  device whatever is used, the entire  arm  being employed.  The German educational authorities, too, are at present giving considerable attention to left hand work,  especially in their technical 'and me-'  chanical schools. The students are  taught to saw, plant, and hammer as  well with the left hand as with the  right, and the economical and industrial importance of ambidexterity is  firmly impressed upon the minds of  young men and women.

MONTHS OF AGONY  A Severe Case of Rheumatism Cured  by Dr. Williams* Pink Pills  "For many weary months I suffered untold agony.    I could not walk.  could scarcely raise myself to a sitting posture. I was under medical  care, but' in vain. Finally I tried  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and they  have restored me to my former healthy condition."  This strong .statement was made to  reporter recent'y by Mr. Charles SV  Keddey; formerly of Kignston, N.S.,  but" now living at Port Maitland.  Mr. Keddey, is a carpenter by trade  and is now. able to work every day.  He adds: "I cannot speak*too highly  of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, as they  cured me after other' medicine, failed.  While I was living at Kingston, N.  S., I was.seized with rheumatism in  its most violent form. I .was compelled to take* to my bed and for  months was an iilvalid. I, was' so  weak that it: was difficult for me t<  raise myself to a sitting.posture. It  is impossible to tell how much I suffered day and night, week in and  week out. The pains were like piercing swords. I had medical attendance, but it failed. *Then I tried  medicines advertised to cure rheumatism, but"���, with the same result���  money wasted^ One day when hope  had almost gone a friend advised me  to try Dr. Williams'. Pink Pills. .1  told him my;! experience with other  medicines but he assured me that-  these" pills would cure rheumatism, so  I sent for a supply. After using a  few.< boxes T was able to leave my  bed, and from that on my restoration to health was rapid. I am now  as well as ever I was, and have not  had the slightest touch of rheumatism since. The change they have  wrought in my case is simply miraculous and I can strongly recon>  mend Dr. Williams',PinW\pills to^any,  one suffering from any form of rheumatism."  Rheumatism is rooted in the blood.  Rubbing the aching limbs with liniments and outward remedies cannot  possibly cure it. You must get the  rheumatic acid out of the blood and  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills is the one  sure medicine to do this, because  they actually make new blood. That  is why these-- pills cure anaemia,  headaches and backaches, neuralgia,  indigestion and the secret ailments  that make miserable the lives of so  many women and growing girls.

Because  of Scarcity  and  High  Price  of   Feed.  ** Under the /caption, "A Lean Year  tor Ontario" the Weekly Sun/saya;  Roughly, we have nine million-acres  devoted to the various ' field props  grown in Ontario. Of-this total, about  three million-acres are in hay, and  two and three-quarter millions in oats.  Thus well over sixty * per cent, of the  entire acreage given to field cultivation is in these tw6 crops, and th���se  two main cropsv are the poorest in  many years. Hay will not give over  two-thirds of the tonnage per acre  this year that has been harvested in  recent years���probably not over half.  Oats are likely to be nearly 35 per  sent, below the average yield, and  this is .,. equivalent to cutting off  twenty-five million bushels on this  one crop alone.  On the other hand, the hay which  has been harvested has been exceptionally well saved, and com, .which  can be largely substituted for hay;-  has of late been making splendid progress, while the area in this crop is  larger than usual. There is only about  one-sixth the acreage in, corn that we  have in hay, but the tonnage per  acre is six times ns great in one case  as"in the other, If we have an open  fall, thus permitting of the full- maturity of the corn, the increased yield  in this crop may pretty well offset the  shortage in the other coarse fodder.  Peas, which had been steadily de-  alining in acreage up to 1904, have  since shttwn a rapid increase, and the  area.ih this crop in the present season will probably be one-fourth greater than that of. three years ago. At  present, the promise js for an excellent yield in peas. Barley again, of  which we will probably "have 800,000  acres this year, seems as if it will go  somewhat above the average in yie*ld  per acre. IfHhe season had been* a-  normal one for all fall wheat we  would piobably have had eight hundred thousand acres in this crop, but  a great deal of the land intended for  the production of fall wheat has been  drilled in with barley, and this, while  it means a shortage in flour, will add  considerably t'6 the available supply  of feedstuffs. But after all allowances  are made, there will undoubtedly be  a,material sho'rtage in feed in 1907,  as compared' with  recent years.  So far as grain is concerned Ontario .will, a.s our correspondent  "Vim" said fecntly. have practically  none for export this year. Our dependence in products for sale will  have to be on butter and cheese,  bacon and beef^cattle, and the cost  of making these "will bo' higher than  usual because of the high values  which will undoubtedly be placed on  feedstuffs.  On the whole, this will be a lean  year for Ontario farmers.  The Counsel for the Defence���I  uphold that a tomato, however well  aimed, could not have caused such  a black eye.

AN  UNOPENED  PADLOCK.  Viennn's Strange Relic That Defied th��  World's Locksmiths.  In 1810 a blacksmith weSit to Vienna  and locked an iron baid aronnd a tree  with a padlock. What be did with the  ���ey no one knows to this day. There  is .a mirthful legend to the effect that  he carelessly threw It into the air and  that it never came down again. At  any rate, the key cotrid not be found,  and the Austrian. government offered  a prize of 500 ducats to any one Who  could make a key that would turn the  bolt in tbe lock witbout breaking it  Many have tried to win the prize,  but nobody has won'It Eventually It  became the practice among the con-,  testants to drive a nail in the {ree and  the heads of some of the nails bear  the Initials of those who drove tbem.  Tlie practice of driving nails Into the  tree sealed its fate. The lower part of  the tree in a few years assumed the  appearance of a solid mass of Iron.  One spring the leaves failed to come  out, and later a summer storm blew  the top away. .  The historic stump was cut of and  placed ou* a pedestal on one of the  prominent street corners ln Vienna.  At the same time the Iron band was  >cut In two and put around the stump  to hold It in its nictie, leaving tlie padlock lu its original position. And  there the old stump stands to this day  an object both of the curiosity, of tourists and the veneration of the residents of Vienna. Incidentally, a street.

Researches  have brought to light astronomical tables in India wbich-must have been  constructed by .the principles of geometry. Some are of the opinion that they  '.lave been framed from observations  made not less than 3,000 years before  the Christian era, ahd If this opinion  be well founded the science.of geometry must'have been cultivated in India to a considerable extent long before the period assigned to its origin In  the west, so that many of the elementary propositions may" have been  brought from India to Greece.  The Indians have a treatise called the  "Surya Sidhanta," which .professes to  be a revelation from heaven communicated to Meya, a man of great janctity,  about 4,000;000 yoilrs ago. This book  contains^! rational system of trigonometry which differs entirely from the  Urst known In Greece and Arabia'. In  fact, lt is founded on a geometrical  theorem which was not known to the  jyeometriclans of Europe before the  time of .V'cta, about 200 years ago.  And lt employs methods'of demonstration unknown to the Greeks, who used  others. The former have been attributed to the Arabs, but It Is possible  they have received this Improvement  in trigonometry as well as the numerical   characters   from   India.

Arrived at the  place, and wishing to assure himself  of the mildness of the air, he began  to make some inquiries of the proprietor of the inn where, he thought  of staying.  "My doctor has "recommended me  to stay for a while in a place where  the south wind mostly blew."  "Well, sir, I should' think this  place would suit you well, for we always have a south wind hare."

The position of library in some of  our city libraries often- calls for  qualities which would at first thought  occur to one as indispensable to persons of the Sherlock Holmes persuasion rather than to those busy in the  field of library work.  For example, in one of the crowded  districts a little boy appeared at the  desk one morning and demanded a  "book by a feller named Dirt." Suspecting a discrepancy somewhere,  the librarian searched the catalogue  in vain, then had recourse to cross-  questioning. This proved equally  futile, and a note was sent to the  boy's mother, asking her if she would  be kind enough to write the name of  the book she -wanted. In about half  an hour he returned with a slip of  paper, on which was written:  "Please send something, by - George  Sand."  GENERAL BOOTH'S TOUR.  Welsh Follow the. Veteran Salvationist���Man With a Whistle.  On a lonely road half a mile bayond  the village of New Inn, Carmarthenshire, a man ran furiously, blowing  a whistle. He was followed by a woman in-a carriage frantically .waving  a paper. A few hundred yards further  on, beneath the shade of a tree, sat  General Booth in his motor-car. The  Salvationist chief hadvbeen scheduled  to speak at the village," but had driv-  -pn��� through��� without,_rccocnizing_it_  The paper which the woman waved  wns the address of welcome. The man  with' the whistle was the village  schoolmaster, who explained to the  perplexed general that the village-had  been-waiting for him for hours. The  school children were all out with flags,  the village choir wanted to sing, and  all were ready tn irive the general a  royal welcome.. "We hnve not time to  go'back," replied Generol Booth, "but  I will spenk from benpath this tree."  Another blast m* the. schoolmaster's  whiptle brought I'ip entire population  to ,thf* spot,, and the speaking proceeded.  There was a barber in. South Bend,  who, having been out late the night  before, had a shaky hand the next  morning, and cut a patron's cheek  four times. After each accident the  barber said, as he sponged away the  blood, "Oh, dear me, how careless!"  and laughed,  and let it go at that.  The patron took all those gashes  in grave silence. But when the shave  was over he filled a glass at the ice-  cooler, took a mouthful of water, and  with compressed lips proceeded to  shake his head from siderto side and  to toss it up and down.  "What is the matter?", the barber  asked. "You, ain't got the toothache,  have you?"  "No," said the customer; "I only  just wanted, to see if my mouth  would still hold water without leaking, that was all." ���  Steel  Side-Walls  for Modern-Homes'  ir furou ...  m��tcl)eip��f��l!yMX��rt5xb��n��  Fu tuipum wood, ptuler ot paper !a betety���  tlyurartKheme���any colortenone���  maka the ioonu REALLY janiuty�����m ptotadioa  again*! fire���thcte are lone of.ihe teasoiu why YOUR  home���why anymoden buflafoganywhcretbouMaar*  PEDLAR.
