Milliners and uiy charming friend, Madame Cloux! 1 wondered how the piquant, well informed little dame had succeeded in her new venture, having removed from Denver to San Diego. "Our House," the most exclusive firm of high-class imported millinery in the United States, considered htr its most appreciative buyer. A stroke of hick had made me junior partner of "Our Room." Ma- iuine Cloux had not heard the news I intended to conceal it until 1 was quite sure the impression she had made on me as a mere traveling rep resentative, could hear the test of a l'ro.-dier comparison with the original. : Mademe Cloux, : : Imported Millinery, : : Summer Opening. : Such was the card. Now was the hest time to see her at her very best receiving. How she could receive! Many of her millionaire patrons must often have envied her manner it was perfect ; and not e of them could have suspected tho existence of her other manner, that of delicious diablerie. Once, in Denver, by acci dent I had called on a "summer open ing." Carriages lined the street in front of her residence, and "buttons'" took my card. Now no! not a ilngle carriage. Yet hy the artistic style of the entrance (and omen of omens an orange-shrub at the door, with blos soms) I knew at once it could have been composed by no one but her. I entered, Madame Cloux was on tho verge of tears, yet she laughed heroically; soon gesticulating tragic ally, and declaiming wildly, (with her dainty suspicion of an accent), she ex plained : "Oh, Mr. Adam, I make one grand mistake. I think the Coronado bote! is filled with the wealthy ladies! I catch them all in holiday pleasantry! They sen the creations! They cannot resist! I make money! Oh, Mr. Adam, I am fallen!" "My dear Mad " "I am, I am! And my pedestal falls with me, broken my heart it, too, is breaking. See! (waving frantically) the pictures!

And no one, no one as mncfa as opens the door to admire. Ah! why did I ever leave my dear Paris? I have been going down. down, ever sine I bade it farewell!

It is but too recently I haw been through all that oven to con templating! Listen; Just in time I learned how to change the condition. In San Francisco a year ago, I arrived fine night, sick and weary. A series of fatal losses had overtaken me from the moment I nad resigned my posi tion In 'Our House,' to better my for tune in California where I was well known. It had never entered my con v-4 0 sciousness that another position would be difficult to procure. Fail ure after failure, coupled with a hea setback of grippe, nearly broke my spirit. Anything in the way of work I would have ta!. n, but. it seemed there was always a hundred ahead of mo. "At last, one Sunday morning, I realized I had just fifteen cents, and on Monday morning my landlady would request her week's rent after that the deluge! Hunger alone com pelled me to rise and go out at night into tbe drizzling fog. A flaring light attracted me as I was creeping back to my lodging) and a placard in front of one of the minor halls read thus: : Lecture and Ter.t Meeting. : : How to bo Successful! : : Admission free. : "Light, warmth for r.n hour at lonst, seemed to be provided. I can not describe the scene, nor the people, e7r m?r "When thing.3 are out of order, forc ibly change the condition." nor anything, for I have nothing but a memory of dreary misery, until I seemed to wake up just as the profes sor was saying: 'Change your condi tion. Now, my good people! what WOttld I do if a series of catastrophes overtook me? "Do you think I would allow it to go on? No, Indeed! I would forcibly Change the condition. Say you are always unsuccessiul in a certain room take a cane and thrash the very air nr. til you have changed the condition. Do not fear. You can never sucec d until you have forcibly changed your condition." "I got into the street and to my room. 'Ohangfl your condition' bUBSOd in my ears. I fell asleep and awoke la the morning with 'Change your con dition.' I sprang off my cot. took my Coal nnd trousers and rolled them into a vicious bundle a. id kicked it through the window; then my eye fell on my grip, and in a second more, it too, was In the all y.

What do I care? Hut the landlady never came near. "At last knock at tli" door - I had left it unlocked. Come in! A former chum walked in. "HellO, Adnm. Have been c.irslng you all over have a position for you. What's the matter? Are you sick?' " No. but I've changed my condi tion.' " I yelled. " 'Can't you get tip?" ' 'Of course I can.' WHk that I arose and confronted him. " 'Where arc your clothes?' he stam mered. "'Pitched them out there to change my condition.'

(Mixed with another almost uncontrollable fit of laughter, I hearily jostled a man in passing. " Why, is it not?' "'Yes, it i.i Adam! Changed m7 condition! Ha, ha!' " 'Clad to hear It."

There will be a difference." A carriage at that instant drove up. "The lady to practice on," said I. "Now send me word without fail. I wish to know the result. Success." This was my little ruse to get a note from her, for how can a man pro pose when he does not know the lady's glren name. She had always been just iani Cloux.'

The Western states and territories contain many evidences that this con tinent was once peopled by a race well advanced in the arts of civiliza tion. A wonder of apparently prehis toric origin has been discovered re cently by a surveyor li northern Ida ho. It is the well-preserved remains of a dike, and lies along the east side of a swamp known as Hoodoo lake, Kootenai entity, in r. country thickly covered with timber and un derbrush. The dike is C.OOO feet in length, h built carefully of reck and covered with earth. In dimensions It is four feet in height and three feet wide on top. The dike is broken in two or three places for a rod or two, end at one point apparently it has been cut in recent years. There are also evi dences that parts of the dike have hen broken and swept away by floods in times h :ig past. Trees over 100 yean old growing on the crest of the dike also attest in some degree to its antiouity. Tho surveyor. William I ihley, was at first inclined to the belief that it wee an old moraia of the glacial pe riod, such as are frequently encoun tered in the Northwest. Upon cloae investigation, however, hi was con vinced that it was t. work of man. owing to the singular regularity of its form and the materials which com pose it. The earth's surface must have undergone some great changes since the construction of this dike, for the present geological formation of the locality lenders It useless either for reclamation purPOOOl or to keep back the water. It could not have been the work of Indians. Us Olll i'l i.i lUggettive of vast expanses Of time and recalls the work of the ancient mound builders. MAKING PRECIOUS STONES. Chips of the Ruby Turned Into Stones of Commercial Size. Rudolph Oblatt, a chemist and ( pert on precious stones, is reported to have Invented a process for the fus ing of particles of ruby, known as ruby waste, into stones of a commer cial line. The stones which he has produced have received considerable attention from local geologists and are pTOttOUBOed genuine. He MtOCtl from the small, rough, genuine ruby particles whose colors and qualities are practically the same. One chip he places upon the top of a I'-slmped platinum tube. He then applies the heai. which is concentrated by a tpe da process, and forced Upon the ruby with an air pressure of sun poUBdf. As tho chip is melted he adds Other chips until he has built up a genuine ruby whose wetuhl varie- from five !,, ten c irate. The op ml loa reeeirea from one to two hours. After the ruby has been produced n difficult task remains that of cooling the tone, which is at a tremendous heat. This is accomplished by a scl pntiiie PTOOeil which prevents enur ing. The rub is sent to tie- precious lone cutters. Where it passes exactly through the same process as a stone from the Uurmah mines.-- New ?ork Commercial Mice Diclike Peppermint.

CHIN WHISKERS HID 3CAR3. Explanation for Capt. Gibbons' LuxurN ant Hirsute Growth. Capt. Olhboaa had a habit of wear ing chin Brhiakerfl. I had always thought this was due to tho fact that they were mate becoming, but I learn ed the reason to be otherwise. It seems that his chin and throat were scarred and these scars are thus ex plained: On one of the ships which ho com manded there was a mutiny of the crew one morning on the high seas, which he promptly started to quell. The sailors were too many for him, however, as he was unarmed, and they soon bad him down on the deck, bound and gagged with a long knifo across his mouth. It was this knife that produced tho wounds whose lean the captain carried the remain der of his life concealed beneath tho beard. Whde thus bound and gagged a lady passenc r came to him and cut ting the bonds handed him a loaded revolver. With this weapon he soon had the crew at his feet and the ring leaders were placed in irons. Lewis ton Journal. A Physician's Advice. Yorktown, Ark, March Tm. Dodd'a Kidnev Pills must not be confounded with the ordinary patent medicine. They are a new discovery, a specific for all diseases of tho Kidneys and have been accepted by physicians only after careful tests in extreme cases. Dr. I.eland Williamson, of this place heartily indorses Dodd 8 Kid ney Pills "as a remedy for the vari ous forms of tho diseases of the Kid neys, pains in tho back, soreness in the region of the Kidneys, foul-smelling urine and cloudy or thickened con dition of the urine, discharges of pus or corruption. Gout, Rheumatism, In flammation and Congestion of the Kid neys and all kindred complaints." Continuing he says: "I could mention many cases In which I have prescribed Dodd's Kid ney Pills with success. For instancek Mr. Robert Weeks, farmer, malaria, haematuria or swamp fever three times, kidneys weakened, continual pain and soreness in back, which made him very nervous, had a littlo feer and sometimes chilly. Urine changeable, but generally very hlgh eolored ; an old chronic case who had taken much medicine with little ef fect. After taking Dodd's Kidney Pills about six weeks he was entirely cured and had gained fifteen pounds in weight. The last time I saw him he was the picture of perfect man hood." Platinum Finely Drawn.

By Western or Northwest Canada is Oaually meant the great agricultural country west of Ontario, and north of .Minnesota, North Dakota, and Mon tana. Part of it is agricultural prairie, treeless in places, park like In others, part la genuine plah:s, well adapted to cattle ranches; part requires irriga tion for successful tillage, most of it does rot. Tho political divisions of this region are the Province of Mani toba ami the territorial district of As siniboia. Saskatchewan, Alberta and Athabaska. At present, however, the latter is too remote for immediate practical purposes. The general character of the soil of Western Canada is a rich, black, clay loam with a clay subsoil. Such a soil is particularly rich in food for the wheat plant. Tho subsoil is a clay, which retains the winter frost until it is thawed out by the warm rays of the sun and drawn upward to stimu late the growth of tho young wheat, so that even in dry seasons wheat is a good crop. The clay soil also retains the heat of the sun later In the sum mer and assists In the early ripening of the grain. It is claimed that cul tivation has the effect of increasing the temperature of the soil several degrees, as well as the air above It. Western Canada climato is good cold in winter, hot In summer, but With cool nights. Violent storms of any kind are rare. The rainfall is not heavy. It varies with places, but aver lt;es about 17 Inches. It falls usimllv ' at the time the crowing crops need It. The Department of the Interior, Ot tawa. Canada, has agents established at different points through nit tho United States who will be pleased to forward an Atlas of Western Canada and give such other Information as to railway rate, etc.. as may be required. That agriculture in Western Canada pays is shown by the number oi testi monials given by farmers. The fol lowing Is an extract made from a let ter from a farmer near Moose Jaw: "At the present time I own sixteen hundred acres of land, fifty horses and a large pasture fenced containing a tl ousand acres. These horses run out a'l winter and come In In the spring quite fat. A man with money judi ciously expended will make a compe tence very shortly. I consider In the last six years the increase in the Value Of my land has netted me forty thousand dollars."
