This will be gratifying to i . iM'T In the Canadian West, even If Mr. Maya declines to be b'uind to a time limit with the exactitude of a r.'op watch.

THE FIRST TWINGE Or Rheumatism Calls for Dr. William!' Pink Pills If You Would Be Easily Cured. Mr. Frank Little, a w 11 known cltl icn of Portland, Ionia Co., Mich., was cured of a severe caso of rheumatism by L)r.

I decided to try tho pills and began to squ some Improvement soon after using them. This encouraged me to keep on until I was entirely cured.

The moon ;ls high in the heavens. As 1 glanced at It I leaped from my chair ' Vim Minden," I cried aloud, "look It that!"

"The great epidemic of lunacy has come." He pointed far nut Into the space beyond. The strikers met that night In nn old. nliiiniloneil skating link a lnrge. rambling wooden structure. It was flll"i to overflowing. A loud voiced, rcd-lnced demagogue stood 111 the ros trum, surrounded by un excited ma.-s of humanity. Wo were lateVon Mludcn and myself. The speaker hud bad lime to rouse his hearers to n pitch of fury. "It's n good time," be cried, "a good thing to he hero, restln' easy an' Millet. What the h d ye mean by It?

Who'll coino whero Mullen leads the way?" He leaped to the floor nnd plunged through tho crowd and out of the door, a wild cheer greeting him as he went. And Hie men went with him, pulling guns and knives from their pockets, picking up stones and staves as they went along, with Mul len at their head. Wo followed them. McDavltt's was nblnzo with lights but not for long. As wo approached the bouse. It suddenly became dark. Some one produced a torch and fired the house, filled as it was with horror-stricken guests. Tho flames spread, curling tip on all sides. Suddenly the clanging of many bells was heard niton the night nlr. Von Minden und I looked In tho direc tion from whence tho Bound came. II was help! Half a dozen horseless tire engines were charging down tho bill. They drew up on the outsklrt of the crowd. The water-butt wni neur where Von Minden nnd I stood the crowd hud forgotten It. Now they surged around It, and wo were caught. Tho firemen tried to get their ma chines through thn throng. "Ict us through!" they cried. "No!" yelled the crowd. At tho water-butt near which I stood, one of the crowd, a burly fel low, was waving a crowbnr round and round Vlt head. The firemen with their hose tried to get near, but fine J .los, pll I!. llOWli'S. I land again he beat them off. I watched I him. I don't know what happened. Every I ililng was red before my eyes. I was I conscious only that something fell viih a Hind to the ground something 'hut the crowd trampled under foot, I mil that the firemen were attaching j '.be hose and that I had done It. I Mlood' lilood!" 1 cried In a ! wild fnnzv breaking away from tho crowd and running up tbe street, , "niiw.d!" ! As 1 ran h great number of police ollleeis passed me, on their wav to the riot. Their eyes were wild and bloodshot. j 1 siaggi i i ll on until I reached Von ' Miielen s hou ,e. He h.nl got there, iielore nie "Vim .Minden!" 1 cried, beating the door fianlienlly. He came out, and I Started back In surprise. Von Minden It was. but hi" was completely incased, from the waist up. In a metal cylinder that surrounded his body. It was full of holes and emitted a white vapor ihut almost eompletely enveloped llllll. lie laughed. "Sleiim"' be cried. ' It s tl lily thing the only anti dote for the madness. Wall!" lie opened n small valve, and out caino a flood of steam. Instantly the blool left my brain. For the first, lime lu hours I felt like n rational being. Then be piodiiced another portable generator and attached It to my per son "We must go. Anson," lie explained, "in the cause of humanity." Wo then proceeded to the two lending newspaper nlllees and dictated notices lor their bulletin", directing everybody to keep their windows shut, to keep indoors, and to keep their kettles steaming Von Minden and mw'll as we went through the streets, cried: "Steuin! Steam!" lo all whom we met. The sun rose the next mornfcig as red a sun a.- last night's moon had been and wherever shone the sun that day. It shone down upon ruin and disaster. The whole world woke to find Itself gone mail. The next day every state In the union was clamoring for one man Von Minden the federal government most of all. A special session of congress was culled. Committees had experimented with Von Mlndens steam generators. They sent for me chanics and engineers from every stale, und called Von Minden In. In side of 48 hours Von Mlndens ap paratus was being inainilactured and distributed all over the country. In a week, however, the ofliclals and Von Minden with them began to wake iqi to the fact that, whll- steam was the great remedy. It was n rem edy that the masses didn't want. To them madness was Intoxication they preferred It to sanity. Il was Independence ,av, July Ph. that the irlsis came. Oa that day. from every town and city in the Pulled Siaies. by prearrnngement. men by thousands and tens of thou sands, started out, mad as they were, yet with semblance of order, bound l. r one common destination They were bound for Washington. They had become anarchists. They had determined to wipe out the Pulled Stales government th presi dent, congress, and every depart ment. On July 1.'. that fateful day. I stood wllh Von Minden on top of th" Washington monument. The mob bud surrounded the cltv. The entire government had left It. nnd was speeding west by separate routes. j At a preconcerted signal thn mob I entered Nothing could have kept (hem out. and no attempt was made j to do so. Von Minden sat nt my side with his linger on a button. H j was ready at nn Instant's notlco to loose upon the mass of humanity pow erful Jets of steam that would either kill or cure. For awhile there v.u,s no disorder. The great urmy entered, rank upon rank, nnd filled every street and every park. They were there to destroy, but to destroy when Iho time eiiine. Suddenly we heard murmurs something was wrong. Then a wild yell of rage, growing stronger ns the time went on. burst from tho throats of a million men. They had been thwarted, At that moment Von Minden pressed the button. I looked out. Nothing happened. Something was wrong. "lxiok. look!" I cried. "Ilelow!" It Is quite unnecessary for me to describe It. Tbe nuisB of citizens be low, in Its frenzy nnd disappointment, had become uncontrollable they had become wild of rnge, they threw themselves, not upon the city, not against tho public buildings, bill upon one another. All day long that fierce buttle ruged within tho Streets of the city. Von Minden covered his eyes with his hands. "My God," ho moaned. We threw ourselves upon the floor, nauseated at the sight a sight of which tho world hud never seen the like. Thou suddenly the madnesi seized on us. "The end of the world," cried Von Minden, leaping to his feet, Tho blood surged Into my head. "Hurrah!" 1 exclaimed In a dollrlum of frenzy. "The end of tho world! Lot us die now!" Wo laughed again In unlaon, and muttered incoherent things. Then with a wild films of head and arms ho slung himself away from the parapet and into the ipaco bojind In Dresden and MANY DAINTY AND INEXPENSIVE NOVELTIES. Many Are Cheap, But the Real Lover of Pretty Things May Decide to Make Some for Herself, Seldom lias there been such n" va ried array of dainty and Inexpensive ribbon novelties as are presented this year. In many cases It will not repay tho needle woman to make ihein. for they ire a I ti ii i-1 as ohi np us she could fashion Ihetu at home. On the other hand, there are others which she de sires to make as examples of her iieedleci aft and because she wants to give them u more personal touch. While vailed Hlyles of ribbon nre employed there Is a particular liking fur Dresden ribbons In rather large, i plushy lloi nls. and with a colored sailn (ilge. which are very frequently combined with a plain color. There Is u certain delicacy about liie:ueii ilonils In their misty hues which Instinctively appeal to one's artistic sense, hence their extreme vogue. The very newest lint pin holder, Attractive Case for Hair Pine. which to my mind Is more attractive than the long vial. Is the circular one with center of wire netting and a large full mlllo of plain satin ribbon, a sunflower for till the world. These nre sold for 23 cents apiece. To do- Few Feet Are Shoee Worn Are to Blame For Many Malformations. It Is n rare thing nowadays a per fect foot. To compare the foot of an lulant with that of an udult of mature years makes It dlllleult to believe that both started out as the same organ. Our shoos) have played havoc with tit .e members. To be perfect a fool Is hollowed out well, inside and out. II has a high In step, short heel and long toes, slightly spatuhited ut the end. A rare point of beauty Is the hollow on tbe oulsldo of 'he foot. Shoemakers pay loo little attention to the conformation of their shoes to the arch, an important problem, for the arch Is a series of bones which extend to the toes and joints. In For Making Dainty Work Bag What Can Be Done With Cretonne and Simple Trimmings. This requires 27 Inches of cretonne yard wide. This will make two bags by cutting lengthwise, ltny two pairs of six lneh embroidery hoops without the felt if you can Ilnd them; turn a two and one-half inch hem at each end of material, putting the hoop In- aide of hem. This is a little compli cated, but after you mnko one Ijag It will come easy. Now make a little hem down four Inches on each side from hoop. This will leave leven Inches on each side. Gather thin tip, using very largo stltehei. Of course both Bides must be made alike. Cover he gathering with a covered mould ind bow, then wind both boopi with Ibbon. a little more than half way nd make a bow where tho ribbon md cretonno Join. It requires three nd one-half yards of five-Inch ribbon. 1'hese bags are very pretty and can " ' ' Other Ribbons scribo this pretty novelty In detail wo must confess that tho center Is but an humble tea strainer, tbe handle extending upright and so forming a support on which It may be hung. Within It Is placed a little cushion fill ed with cotton and covered with flow ered silk or sllkollne. Tho plm aro easily thrust through the wire und so held in pluce. A medicine glass cover 1b another pretty and practical trllle. To make -is' Apron of Washable Ribbon and Lace, it cut a circle of cardboard slightly larger than the top of a tumbler and cover this wlih a piece of figured sllkollne, lawn or silk, first padding It with a layer of cotton wadding. I. Ine with n piece of plain material and cover 16 one-hnlf-lnch brass rings with single crochet done in silk the same color ns the lining. Sew one of those to the top of the circle for a handle, and Join the remaining 15 In a ring, sewing them to the edge of th card hoard. A very pretty daisy emery Is mndo of lfl Inches of while ribbon knotted every two Inches und sewed in loops around a yellow emery, so that a knot comes in Hie center of each loop, there being eight In all. A few flower stamens and pistils are sewed inside these loops with several loops of green ribbon at tbe bnck.

Perfect in Shape wulklng, this part of the foot Blvei the spring nnd Impetus for the next step. It Is a wonderful mechanism, which can be put entirely out of proper working order by Improperly ma'de shoes. The raelnl characteristics of the foot are ns pronounced ns those of the face. The Frenchwonuiu has an en tirely different shaped foot from that of tho flat-footed Kngllsh woman. The Swedish wonmn's broad foot Is a marked contrast to tho American womnn's foot, with Its high Insten. Feet too small for tho figure are a deformity and a woman w-ho totters around on number twos when ehe ought to wear number fours, Is de forming her feet, BiHilllng her looks and trifling with hor temper. bo used for soiled handkerchiefs, work and dust bags, and are pretty made of silk mid scrim, hut In cither case ought to be lined, as the matorlnl Is so flimsy. Sinull figures look best In either case. To Make Shells. These should be muile of one sheet each, rolled out In circular form nnd spread over the bottom, sides nnd edges of buttered dishes or putty pans, and baked empty. They aro best when made of puff paste, (hough they may be muda of ordinary paste. They should be rolled rather thick, nnd need about an hour's baking. The oven should bo rnther quirk and of even heat throughout so that the paste will bo even und not drawn lo nno sldo or warped In cooking Tho Bhells fhould be baked of a light brown nnd when cool they must be taken out of the dishes lu which they were baked and put upon plates to be filled with fruit or oysters. Shells of puff pasto rise best when baked on flat patty pans or tins. When cool, pllo tho swoctmcati an them In a heap, linking them empty pro vents the paste from being moist at the bottom. .

Her buft should measure from "S to "6 Inches; hor hips from eight to ten Inchea more than this, and her wnlst should be from 22 to 28 inches In circumference.
