MNED TO MURDER
)G DELIBERATELY ATTEMPTS TO ASSASSINATE RIVAL. imal Proved Itself Capable of Sub- fe Plotting and Much Boldness of' Execution Similar Cases Recorded. lOt premeditated cases of brute as- tssination there are several remark le instances on record. They mani- st the faculty of contrivance, of mo ve, and of inductively assimilating iuse and effect, which, if not actu ily human reasoning,, comes perilous i near to it. fl have more than one record of that haracter, says a -writer in the Pall IMall Gazette, this instance for exam Iple: A few years ago I was on a visit to a Westmoreland clergyman and yas accompanied by a favorite Scotch Vrrier. ' It made itself agreeable to lery member of the family but one )arge Newfoundland retriever ?og, ho showed subdued signs of jeal ousy. One day both dogs disappeared tnd were absent from the house more lan two hours, when the large one returned home alone. I was anxious about my own and went in search of it, and passing (through the village I met a gamekeep er whom I Knew well, carrying in his arms the poor brute,1 soaking wet and fin an exhausted state. He revealed le cause. While sitting on a bank of LrUer about a mile from the parson- he saw the two dogs, apparently Kfor a friendly ramble, approach the waterside on the other side; fey lay down close together, and in pw minutes he was astonished to the big dog suddenly grip the ter- by the back of the neck and leap (he wator with it. There in about eet of water It deliberately stood leld the terrier under the surface, friend saw that there was noth- not cross the river without go- tr ormind a T T-i il cm nonrlv n tmnr of a mile away, he fired a shot close to the head of the would-be ca nine assassin. That startled it and, letting the terrier loose, it sprang to the bank and bolted for home. My friend then ran aroung by the bridge, and when he got up trf the scene of the meditated murder found my dog lying on the bank in an exhausted state, just having strength to crawl out. We have here motive, contri vance to realize the motive, and skil ful deliberation la the operation, and if that is not reasoning I should be glad of a' definition of "reasoning" which would exclude such a perform,- ance.

He thinks when he makes this promise that it will be easy to keep. Whether It is easy or hard to keep it is a prom ise rarely, if ever, broken. Time and again widowers have sought me out for advice on this sub ject. They are in love, but they prom ised their dead wives not to marry again. Shall they break or keep this promise? I can only advise them to do ad their conscience dictates. 'At the same time I think it is sel fish for dying wives to extract such promises from their broken-hearted husbands. Such promises, , by the way, are rarely extracted by dying hus bands from broken-hearted wives. Bat then when the ripfl Tinahniui's win sa taken from her.

Magnificent Crop Returns Year 1906. for the The manner in which the Canadian West has attracted settlers In recent years has caused many of our journals and public men to "sit np and take no tice," to use a current phrase. From every European- country and from al most every State in the Union large number of settlers have flocked to the prairie provinces of Canada, where free homesteads and wide opportun ities are open to all who desire to avail themselves of them. The greatest factor in attracting settlers lies In the inherent richness of soil and suitability of climate for producing what is universally consid ered to be the finest wheat in the world the "No. 1 Hard" of Canadian growth and other cereals that rank in the very first class. This year the harvest returns were: Wheat, 90, 000,000 bushels; oats, 76,000,000 bush els; barley, 17,000,000 bushels; and when it Is considered that the entire population of the three provinces as evidenced by the quinquennial census just completed Is only 810,000, it is easily seen that the lure of the Cana dian West is in Its agricultural poten tialities. Another feature which attracts the settler is that railway construction is proceeding with such rapidity that al most every district is within easy reach of outside markets, and that good prices for all lines of farm prod ucts rule practically from the com mencement of agricultural operations. This is a factor which did not prevail when the earlier settlements in the West were made In Canada and in the United States, and ' has given a great impetus to Canadian Western settle ment In recent years. The free grant system of home steads which prevails in the prairie provinces, by which every settler who is able and willing to comply with the conditions of actual settlement (by no means onerous) is given 160 acres free, except $10 for entry, is a great drawing card, and in the last fiscal year gathered in over. 1S9.000 addi tional to the western population, of which 57.796 were from the United States. The further fact, as is strongly brought about by the agent of the Canadian Government, whose address appears elsewhere, that a splendid common school system, practically free, prevails throughout the entire country, and is easy of access in even the most remote districts, is another great inducement to the settler who has the future welfare of his family in mind, and this, coupled with the fact that western Canadian law and order are proverbial, completes a circle of good and sufficient reasons why the tide of immigration has set in so steadily toward the country to the north of our boundary line. One Peril of Ballooning. One of the strange experiences of a balloonist is that of falling into "a hole in the air," which Mr. Rolker re ports as follows: "So you continue sailing, enjoying the present with little thought of the startling sur prises that may be before you. Ahead of you, unseen, may be what the bal loonist calls a 'hole in the air, re sembling the vortex of a maelstrom, and down this you may literally fall at a rate which is terrifying until, by sacrificing two or three bag ful s of sand at once, your pilot checks your downward flight." But these 'holes" are scarce, and, as a rule, the atmos phere is of uniform carrying power. American Magazine. TRYING EXPERIENCE. Spent Over $100 in a Vain Search for Health.

Unarmed and alone, Thomas Dyke was attacked by a wildcat on Locust mountain, south of Mount Carmel, Pa He had been in Ashland and started to drive home. His horse stepped on a nail and he put the animal in a sta ble. Then he started to walk home and was on the mountain when the cries of a wildcat alarmed him. A few minutes later he saw the beast ten feet in front of him. The animal finally sprang. He jumped aside and as the body of the cat struck the road he leaped upon Jt. For several min utes the fight between the wild ani mal and the man went on. At length by a quick swing he broke the ani mal's back.

Tremendous Itching Over Whole Body Scratched Until Bled Wonder ful Cure by Cuticura. "Last year T suffered with a tremen dous itching on my back, which grew worse and worse, until it spread over the whole body, and only my face and hands were free. For four months or so I suffered torments, and I had to scratch, scratch, scratch, until I bled. At night when I went to bed things got worse, and I had at times to get up and scratch my body all over, until I was as sore as could be, and until I suffered excruciating pains. They told me that I was suffering from eczema. Then I made up my mind that I would use the Cuticura Remedies. I used them, according to instructions, and very soon Indeed I was greatly re lieved. - I continued until well, and now I am ready to recommend the Cu ticura Remedies to any one.

' Work is now in progress on a sus pension bridge over the famous "Roy- ? gorge" of the Arkansas river, in Colorado, at a point where the chan nel is only 60 feet wide at the bottom and 230 feet wide at the top. This bridge will span the river 267 feet above the surface of the water, ana will be, therefore, by far the highest bridge in the world. The material will be of flat steel and steel cables, the curved girders finding secure at tachment in the solid sides of the can yon. The floor of the bridge will be of plate glass one and one-half inches thick, to afford visitors the pleasure of looking down the chasm. On each side will be strong, high steel rail ings. The bridge is part of an elec tric railway scheme. The Evils of Constipation. are many; in fact almost every se rious illness has its origin in consti pation, and some medicines, instead of preventing constipation, add to it. This is true of most cathartics, which. when first used, have a beneficial ef fect, but the dose has to be contin ually increased, and before long the remedy ceases to have the slightest effect. There is one preparation, how ever, that can be relied upon to pro duce the, same results with the same dose, even after fifty years' daily use, and this is Brandreth's Pills, which has a record of over 100 years as the standard remedy for constipa tion and all troubles arising from an Impure state of the blood. Brandreth's Pills are the same fine laxative tonic pill your grandparents used, and are for sale everywhere, either plain or sugar-coated. Deer Through Store Window. A three-year-old buck created sensation in Bank street. Providence R. I., the busiest thoroughfare, by charging through the plate glass front of a jewelry store. Upon finding itself cornered the buck retreated through the window and a minute later went into a store and knocked down, the. proprietor, who is a heavyweight. The buck took to the street, and after leading scores of mei and vehicles a merry chase, escaped by taking to the gardens in one of the residential sections.

On Thanksgiving night at a dinner his guests noticed a small board run ning from a window to a nut bowL The host gave one knock on the table with his knife. A squirrel hopped down the plank and dropped a chest nut into the bowL Two raps brought a squirrel with a walnut, three knocks a shellbark. Finally, a grave old squirrel took his place and cracked the nuts, wind ing up the performance by brushing off the crumbs with his thick bushy tail. mom IwV fTrmnc-k J? .0 Li!
