to go to lxmdon and "learn to be 11
Kentleman." The father refuses his con

of him In a friendly "mill," whereupon.
In the delightful opening chapter, "Bar
jiabas knocks down his father, though
as dutifully as 'may be." Then follow
ices dramatic arguments, In tho course
of which the popular notion of a gentle
man gets many a keen thriut.
The book Is full of ndventure and senti

The hero is yout'g, Innocent and un
sophisticated, Jhalllng from Australia, and
brought up with no conception of what
lie might expect should he ever return
to his estate In Kngland. All he had
sver learned, was to tell the truth. Ho

opens we find him In Enullah small so

If you only knew how very generous
the great Hartman organization is, the extremely
liberal, easy paying, monthly credit terms which
are made, and the absolute sincerity with which you are urged
to enjoy freely, and without reserve, every benefit this wonder-
credit system offers, you would not hesitate an instant to open an account here.
The smallest salary is large enough to famish a home at Hartman' s. The ier.y small
first payment down and the little required each month thereafter, together with our
liberal rule of not asking for payments while sick or out of work, is surely an exceedingly generous policy.

of legendary narrative connected with
their calling did not exist. A little re

f doubtful, but it has been Ascertained that
there was a seaman of repute who many

Some authorities say that, meeting with
contrary winds off tho enpe, he sworo a

state that this punishment was meted

HOW TO PRESERVE YOUTH AND BEAUTY.
One great secret of youth and beauty for the young woman or the mother is
the proper understanding o( her womanly system and well-being. Every woman,
young or old, should isetn lm tif and her physical make up. A good way tel
arrive at this knowledge is to get a good doctor book, such for instance, as "The
People's Common Sense Medical Adviser," by R. V. Pierce, M. D., which can
readily be procured by sending thirty-one cents lor cloth-bound copy, addressing
Dr. Pierce, at Buffalo, N. Y.
The womanly system is delicate mtxhine which can only be compared to the in
