Just as an ithlstratioti of what
one live business man who is not
afraid to devote some money, time
and good solid business sense to
advertising can do, it is worth
while to note the following: Mif: H.
N; Welles came to St. Androws six
months ago. Ht had been a ptbm-

tlirtherh states. As has happened

land of his 'dbption-knowing full
well that if they once saw this
beautiful "Arm of the Sea," they
wotld become as enthtisiastie over
it at hnlsel f,,-tihd thaehe could "do
business" with them. He went
about this by means of personal
letters, descriptive circulars, and
reading notices in the Buoy and
and other papers. He has made it
a point to state only exact truths
He says, "I had rather that people'
coming here would find more than
less than I tell them of. In that
event they will stick; while if I
should overdraw, those who come
looking for things which we have
not, would not appreciate what
we have and would go away with
exaggerated tales of bad faith be-
sides that. T have siicceeded fairly
well through life by telling things
as they are and letting them hit as
they may, and am too old to
change now." As evidefic that
he has hit the right system, he add
his agents are receiving letters frohf

4Pantomime Performanoe,
Most pantomine characters were orig-
Inally borrowed frm the Italians. The
First reel English pantomime was pro-
duced at a theater In incoln's Inn
Fields in 1720. It was caUed "Harle-
quln Executed," and its subtitle was
"A New Italian Comic Scene Between
a Scaramouche. a Harlequin. a Coun-
try Farmer. His Wife and Others."
The performance was very successful.
About the middle of the eighteenth
century the character of pantomime
performances -wa completely altered,
chiely because of the genius of the
fameos Grimaldl. who made the clown
the first figure no the pantomime. .rl-
maaldl rst appeared at Sadler' 'plls
beater. where he played the part o'f a
monkey. He was actively engaged on
the stage for erty-nine years, and at
the cloew of hia career he took a bene-
ft at Drury Lane theater which real
id narty 800. He also received 100
from the Drury Lane fund. This was
ta June. 182. He died In 1837 and was
S bred In the churchyard of St. James'
chaqL Pentonville Hill.

"WN'hat sort of yellow?"
Just then a cab drove past.
"The very things" the painter gasped

without stopping.
Delacroix started in pursuit and at a

Woman may learn to revolt, but she
can never learn to rule, She has one

the bladder, brick-dust or sediment in
the urine, head ache, back ache, lame
badk, dizziness, sleeplessness, hearOus-
ness, or the kidneys themselves break
down and waste away cell byll.
Bladder troubles almost always rat lt
from a derangement of the kidneys and
better health in that organ is obtained
quickest by a proper treatment tf the kid-
neys. Swamp-3oot corrects inability to
hold urine and scalding pain in passing it,
and overcomes that unpleasant necessity
of being compelled to gooften through
the day, and to get up many times during
the ntght. The nfid sand immediate effect
of Swamp-Root, the great kidney remedy
is soon realized. It stands the highest be-
cause Of its remarkable health restoring
properties A trial will convince anyone.
Swamp-Root Is pleasant to take and is
sold by all druggists ill fifty-Cent and
one-dollar size bottles. You may have a
sample bottle and a book that tells all
about it, both sent free by mail. Address,
Dr. Kilmer & Co., Binghamton, N. Y.
When writing mentiqn readisngthis gen-
erobs offer in this paper. Don't make
any mistake, but remember the name,
Swamp-Roct, and don't let a dealer sell
you something in place of Swamp-Root-
if you do you will be disappointed.

story goes that a Chinese euperor in
olden days gave as a mark of special
favor a' nagniflient -clay teapot of rare
design to Lo Hung Chang. his favorite
mandarin. This was laid up as a price-
less possession among the treasures of
Lo Hung of borne at his side by two
attendants at all high public festivals
and functions, A rival mandarin saw
these signs of distinction with the
green eyes of jealousy and hired a
man to break the obnoxious pot. The
clumsy fellow was caught in the act
and betrayed his master. War follow-
ed between the two mandarins and
their respective followers, which re-
sulted in the overthrow and death of
Lo Hung Chang and the reception of
his rival into royal favor in ins place.

A Cough

Ayer's Cherry Pectoral is a
regular cough medicine, a
strong medicine, a doctor's
medicine. Good for easy
coughs, hard coughs, desper-
ate coughs. If your doctor
endorses it for your case, take
It. If not, don't take it. Never
go contrary to his advice.

T ;Yers vu-n-Y.W,

The dose of Ayet's Pills is small, only
one t bedtime. As a rule, laxative doses
are better than cathartic doses. For con-
stipation, biliousness, dyspepsia, sick-
headaches, they cannot be excelled.
Ask your doctor about this.

"Mary Spoohti~,' said Sam Bottford
as he healed her oit of the wagon at
her own gate. "I'm owing you a debt
I can never, never pay. You've helped
me through like the good woman you

my health was the same as usual."
The Widow Spooner turned her
head to hide a smile.
"1 knew it all along, Sam," said she,
"but I thought you wouldn't ever be

Samuel looked at her. Slowly a

The Joke on the Jockey.
A few years ago a famous jockey
was engaged to ride the favorite in an
important race. On the way to the
post he found himself cantering along-
side "a rank outsider, the mount of a
stable boy who had only just com-
menced riding.
"You'll have to be careful with that
brute, B.," he remarked. "I've ridden
him before, and you'll never be able to
hold hhiu.*
B. thanked the crack for the hint
and said that he would "do his best"
Halfway through the race the out-
sider and another were in front, with
the favorite close behind. Fancying
that the others were in difficulties, the
rider of the favorite shouted:
"Pull out, B., and let me through!
I've got the race in hand."
The crack was mistaken, however.
Looking back, the stable boy replied,
with a grin:
"I would, but I can't hold him!"
With which the novice let his horse
have his head and shot away, the easi-
est of winners, to the chagrin of the
crack, who finished second.

(Cop-ighted. 1909, by Associted Literary
Well. they wrie triarried and had
,Pone to holsekeepnhg in a cozy little
lat. Arthur Lee and Edith Session. It
was a love matcllh dith knew that
Arthur had a thousatid dollars and no
more to go into the gents' furnishing
business in a modest little store, and
she knew that she would have every-
thing to learn about housekeeping. as
it would be a long time before they
could afford to keep a dervant.
Everything had gone along splendid-
ly for a few weeks, both at the store
and at the flat, when that old maid
Miss Headly came poking her nose in
one day. She was an dequaintance
of both husband and wife and had to
be greeted. Of course she promenad-
ed through the five rooms and praised
nothing, but neither did -iie condemn
antil the bride pointed to a vacant
space in the parlor and observed that
it was reserved for the piano when
they could afford one.
Then the spinster sat doWi its stiff
as a poker with her hands in het lap
and replied:
"Well. I expected it."
"Expected what?"
"That you would bankrupt yotlP hus-
band Inside of a year by your ex-
travagance. You'll coax him into get-
ting a piano, and then will come a fur
coat and opera tickets and tides in a
hired auto, and if you tease hard
enough he may even buy an auto on
the installment plan. I saw the other
day that the business failures in the
country last month were 478, or 78
tnore than for the same month last
year. The men are not to blame for it,
but have been driven into bankruptcy
by their wives."
"But we may not get a piano for two
years," protested the wife, "and I walk
to sase street car fate."
"But what are you doing to assist
your husband?"
"Why, I'm keeping house."
"Yes, and having nothing to do half
the time but reid novels. If I was a
wife, situated as you are, I'd be earn-
ing and saving against the crash."
"Is thefe a r0dsU cotninig?"
"Certainly, and it's going to be in the
gents' furnishing goods too. I meant
to bring along the article I saw in
the paipe yesterday, but I left home in
a great hurry. Edith, do you imagine
that men are always going to wear
shirts and collars ahd cuffs? Has it
nevet' dcetrred- to you that the time
will come when they will make one
suspender do In place of tWo or wear
none at all? Are they going to keep
on choking themselves with neckties'.
Are they going to continue to wear

Soit shirts and things?" a skcd Edith as
she turned pale.

"Then suppose you had the money in

in and get potato salad and sausage
and come out again. If you are the
