Mrs. Annie McKay, Chaplain Sons of
Temperance, 326 Spadina Ave., Toronto,
Cured of Severe Female Troubles by Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
"Dear Mrs. Pinkham : Hcing a mother of five children I
have had experience with the general troubles of my sex. I was
lacerated when one of my children was born and from that hour I
date all my afflictions. I found that within a few months my health
was impaired, I had female weaknes? J serious '"p'rims.,n and
frequent flooding. I became weak and 0.1 i:ept on my feet,
dragging through my work without life or pleasure. A neighbor
who had been helped by taking Lydia E. PinkliainVs Vegetable
Compound insisted that I take at least one bottle. I did so and
felHio much better that I kept on the treatment. For seven months
I used the Compound faithfully and gladly do I say it, health and
strength are mine once more. I know how to value it now when it
was so nearly lost, and I appreciate how great a debt I owe you.
The few dollars I spent for the medicine cannot begin to pay what it
was worth to me. Yours very truly, Mrs. Anna McKay, Chaplain
Sons of Temperance."

None But The Brave
Second Edition Ready Illustrated, $150
CVERY one who loves the scenes of galloping cavaliers, brave sword-
play, desperate adventures and the flash and charm cf a game of
hearts, will want to read None But The BrAve . Merton Balfort, the
hsro, and his felbw soldiers John Acton and Robert Curtis are bound up
tD'cher by both choice and circuVnstance much as were the three
gjardsmen " of Dumas, and their adventures are no less thrilling and
romantic than the deeds cf those classic heroes.
Rarely has there appeared in fiction a maid of such versatile pow
ers to charm and pierce the soul of a lover, as the tantalizing royalist,
Deborah Philipse; for whom the hero gets into trap after trap, risking
life and honor for her sake, only to be ignored and insulted a few
moments afterward, until but that's the story; and a charming,
graphic and original denouement it presents.

You have seen the engraving of the
monument created by David D'Angers
to the memory of Marcos Uotzaria,
and you know whether or not the
great sculptor was successful in hia
determination that ne who fell at Mls
solonghl should have a monument
worthy of hid heroism and patriotism.
The story of that monument, a sad
and pretty tale, is little known too
little known. We iorget too easily.
There Is no longer a liotzaris; there i3
no longer a Mavrocordato. Mlsso
longhl itself is remembered but as
the place where Uy'ron died, and even
then only when one says "Mlssolonghi
1S24." And that is a long time ago.
The day David D'Angers found the
inspiration he sought for his monu
ment to Botzarls,. he was walking
among the tombs of Pere-la-Chalse.
He saw a young girl lying on a grave
stone, at full length, tracing with a
colored chalk the name "Marcos Dot
zarls" on tha headstone of the tomb.
j She had just finished the last one of
the letters on tne oine wise blank
shaft of marble.
"My child," David called to her, as
he approached, "why do you write
tnat name upon that tomb? That
tomb has nothing to do with liot
zaris." "I know it, Monsieur," she replied.
"T simply came here for a walk, and I
was thinking of Marcos liotzaris. Be
sides, the monument has nothing to
do with him because it is not half
good enough for him, beautiful as it
is in its simplicity."
"Why do you think it Is not good
enough for him?" the sculptor asked.
"He was a Greek, Monsieur!" she
said, simply.
She wept. David took note of her.
She was about fourteen, just budding
Into womanhood, with the travail of
the transition expressed in her every
feature, every limb.
Here, he said to himself, was npt
I only the sunject for his composition,
but the model for his art as well. His
.statue took shape in his mind. This
girl, he thought to himself, would rep
resent, copied in stone, to the moot
casual observer the struggle for free
dom. She would bend for him over
the tomb of Botzaris to drag the secret
of that freedom from him and give
to the world in efflgled marble the
story Botzaris fell too soon to finish.
Dawning life, the reincarnation of
liberty, would take up the wo'k of the
dead, in its ever continuing effort to
fulfill its mission. It would be his
Questioning the girl, he learned
nothing. She had nothing to tell, she
said. Her name? She would not give
it. Her residence? She shook her
head. She toid him nothing beyond
that she happened tc. be In Pere-la-Chalse
for a walk.
David sea.ed himself upon a nearby
tomb and commenced to speak of his
monument. He prefaced his remarks
with the question:
"You are a Greek?"
"As Monsieur sees," she said, proud
ly raising her head.
At t.rst she listeneu to him Incredu
lously. When ne spoke of her coun
try's war for freedom, and his own
Ideal of Independence, a fire kindled
in her eyes, and the arled her tears,
and listened, silently entranced, show
ing only by her heaving young breast
and the flashing of her eyes, the emo
tion his words occasionc her.
At length he reached the point of
his conversation. Would she pose for
"I, Monsieur! I" she exclaimed, in
a paroxysm of eagerness and joy as
she sprang to her feet.
"Yes," she said. He began to speak
of paying her for the sittings she
should give him, but she would not
"I want no pay," she said. "It is
for him!"
"Come," she continued. "Is the
studio of Monsieur near? Let us
He was puzzled. He did not know
what to make of her. But to David
D'Angers the words "patriot" and
"patriotism" meant something almost
sacred. She had In her, he saw, some
thing of the spirit of Mlssolonghi. It
was better so. Better for his work,
better for him, better for her.
"So be it," he said, at length.
He led her home with him at once,
and the first sitting was commenced.

as his composition neared its comple
tion and he grew to thinking of the
statue more.
On the wall of his studio hung a
very handsome bronze crucifix, on a
velvet panel. He often founor her
watching it. It seemed to have a fas
cination for her, and one day.when the
child was dressing, after twe or three
hours of hard work, when he had
spoken to her again of payment for
her sittings and she had again de
clined the money, she exclaimed, with
a glance at the crucifix:
"If you insist upon paying me, M.
David, you may give me that!"
The crucifix was worth considerably

usual price, and iJ'Angers hesitated.
"What do you want with it?" he
"I would place it In my room, M.
David," she said, "and pray to Christ
for Greece."
He took down the Image and hand
ed it to her, and she left that day, the
last day of the sittings, staggering
under its weight.
The statue was finished and sent to
Greece, and the .hougnt of hi3 model
passed from his mind. She was a
little of a mystery to him, but Paris
held many such mysteries, or what
seemed to be mysteries, in those days,
and models, to David D'Angers, were
simply models.
That was the story of the Marcos
Botzaris monument. David had been
sufficiently young to be enthusiastic
and sufficiently presumptious to im
agine he could do something which
had never been done before. He had
succeeded. With the aid of the spirit
of Mlssolonghi, he had succeeded.
In after years, when he departed
from France, exiled by Iouis Napo
leon, a wanderer on the face of the
earth, the irresistible desire to behold
once more his masterpiece finally drew
him to Greece.
Long before the vessel anchored
he caught a glimpse of the tumulus
erected at the foot of the bastion in
henor of Botzaris. It made a small,
dark spot on the horizon, but above it
was a speck, small and white, with
another dark speck beside it. He
knew the white speck was his statuo
of the young Greek girl, but it was
not until he had landed that he knew
what is now a matter of history
that hi3 statue had been mutilated
almost beyond repair.
As he reached the tomb, he wept llJfe
a child, for, lying across the marble
figure was the unknown girl who had
originated the masterpiece, and who,
having Journeyed to Mlssolonghi to
behold the composition once more,
and having found the right hand of
the statue broken, the index finger of
which pointed to the name, after try
ing to hide the cruel, vandal break
with a bouquet of flowers, had died
of a broken heart, and, with her still
warm clay, for one brief hour was
taking the place of the marble efflgy
she had inspired to the memory of
Marcos Botzaris and his fall at Mlsso
Humorous Incident at m Milwaukee
Theatrical Performance.
Robert Edeson, the actor, tells this
story of the stage: "I've seen and
heard a good many funny things in the
way of plays and play actors In my
time, but the greatest thing I ever saw
or heard was in Milwaukee. This was
several months ago. It was In one of
the museums there. The museum
had a stock company in its theater,
and its great specialty was border
drama. Every week they gave a new
drama of the wild and woolly west.
This play that I Baw was a blood-curd-ler
of that character, and at the time
I dropped In at the theater the stage
was pitch dark, and two men were
fighting a duel. I could hear the
knives clash together, and hear the
men stumble around the stage, but I
could only faintly distinguish the
forms of the actors. After a while
there was a thump on the floor, and
the villain (I knew it was the villain
by his accent) hissed. Ah, ha! Ru
dolph Tegherington, I have you now,
and no one nigh to see me do the
deed!' Then the drummer hit the bass
drum a belt and the calcium man turn
ed on the light, and away up on a
rotky pass a woman (the heroine)
was seen standing. "Coward!" shfl
shouted, 'me and heaven is here!'"

Minister Set Twenty Drinks m Day ns
the Limit of Moderation.
A Scotch parson once preached a
long sermon against dram drinking,
a vice very prevalent in his parish, and
from which report said he was not
himself wholly exempt.
"Whatever ye do, brethren," said ht,
"do it in moderation, and, aboon all,
be moderate in dram-drlnklng. When
you get up, Indeed, ye may tak a dram,
and anither just before breakfast, and
perhaps anither after; but dlnna be
always dram-drinking.
"If ye are ont in the morn, ye
may Just brace yerself up with anither
dram, and perhaps take anither be
fore luncheon, and eome, I fear, tak
ane after, which is no bo very blam
able, but dinna be always dram-dram-ing
"Naebody can scruple for one Just
afore dinner, and when the desert is
brought in, an after it's ta'en away;
and, perhaps ane, or it may be twa, in
the course of the afternoon, just to
keep ye fra' drowsing and snoozllng;
but dinna be always dram-dram-dram-ing.
"Afore tea, and after tea, and be
tween tea and supper, and before and
after supper, Is no more than right
and good; but let me caution ye,
brethren, not to be always dram-dram-ing.
"Just when ye start for bed, and
when ye're ready to pop into't, and
perhaps when you wake in the night,
to take a dram or twa is noNmore than
a Chrietian man may lawfully do;
but, brethren, let me caution you not
to drink more than I've mentioned, or
may be ye may pass the bounds of
moderation!" Mirror.

Health will come with all its blessings to those Mho know the way, ami it is mainly a ques
tion of riht-livinr, with all tho term implies, but tho efforts whicli strengthen the system,
the pames which refresh and the foods which nourish are important, each in a way, while it is
also advantageous to have knowledge of the best methods of promoting freedom from unsani

stipated condition of the system, take Syrup of Figs and enjoy freedom from the aches and
pains, the colds and headaches and the depression due to inactivity of the bowels. In case of
any organic trouble it is well to consult a competent physician, but when a laxative is required
