"Dally does the dressmaker claim her time, and then eash morning Is she seen on Main street shopping, her heart de? lighted with the dainty organdies, laces and rlbboils which go towards making her June toilette. Then does she behold the ever-faithful swain watching for a glimpse of her smiling face, for, al? though^ she murmurs "I am so tired of spending my days at tho dress? makers," yet her lace brightens as Visions rise before her of the wonder? ful gowns which the modiste is creat? ing to adorn her comely person, and She thinks of the picture she will make when adorned In her pretty much-be ruflled gowns, her pretty face under a llower-bedecked hat, shaded by u Huffy parasol. Indeed, so much of the valuable time of this lassie Is occupied that she has little left for things of a more social nature, consequently the world of so? ciety is not in Its usual stale of whirl and galty as heretofore, but Several en Jcy?fcle and interesting events were forthcoming last week. ? ? ?

The yacht "West Wind" left the boat house nnd Balled to Old Point. Returning they ST. niRT'S < mm; a s. One ol i lie Toronto*! Organtsntlon* of Km Htud-A .Member's Distinction. The St. Mary's Cadets, or which Norfolk Is Justly proud, is viie of the foremost organizations of its kind. Whenever the "Cadets" march along the Streets an admiring crowd Is sure to watch and applaud the tactics of theso bright boys. Among tho members, James, tho 10 yenr-old son of Win. F. Long, of ;:;7 Chapel street, is especially noticeable for the grace and precision In which he marche*. He .'s one of the brightest nnd happiest members of tho cadets, and lie has good reason to be. As one sees him to-day marching with sprightly step and animated face, it Is hard to realize that a few months ago he was a pale, sickly boy walking with list? less ste;i. His rn:ther. In speaking of how the Change was brought about, said: "l>a-st Fall James was apparently all run down, ho had no appetite or ambition, lie seemed to be rapidly failing. He had been vaccinated a few weeks before and we thought that this might be the cause of his trouble, as we feared it had affect) d his system. H s condition worried us. Finally I deckled to try Brown's Iron Hitters, n-s 1 understood It was good for ailments such as James seemed to be af? fected with. "The remedy Just helped hitn wonderful? ly. I vould see that he war. Improving af? ter a few doses had been taken- As he continued using the medicine he Steadily* tmriroved. Brown's Iron Bitters secnv il to build him up. His appetite returned, color came Into his face and in every way ho was much better. "I think this remedy Is splendid, and most heartily recommend It. To-day James Is In the beat of health and much te due Brown's Iron Bitters for this happy condition." A poor appetite invariably represents a faulty stnto cf the system. It Is usually present In malarial diseases and usually indicates a torpid atato of the bowels and llvff. , To Improve a poor appetite and build up a run-down system, take Brown's fron Bitters and good health will result.
