the Royal Baking Powder to be the Strongest
and Purest Baking Powder before the public.
The Outlook In England.
Is Lord Salisbury likely to give the
franchise to women? It ia quite possible
that he will do so. The Liberal Union
ists almost to a man (Mr. Leonard
Courtney the one conspicuous exception)
are against the representation of women,
but the Conservative majoritykWithout
the Liberal Unionists will be strong
enough to carry anything. There will
undoubtedly be a registration of voters
bill, and in all probability a redistribu
tion of seats bill, brought in by the gov
ernment, and it is thought very proba
ble that in these an opportunity will be
found for enfranchising at least some
women. Woman suffrage has always had
considerable Conservative support. Lord
Beaoonsfield was absolutely the first per
son to say a word in its favor in the
house of commons, and Lord Salisbury
and Mr. Balfour are both its advocates.'
Probably, however, a Conservative
woman's suffrage would be confined to
propertied ladies. It would be rather a
representation of that property than an
enfranchisement of women. To this,
probably, the house of lords would not

CANADA'S LIBERAL LEADER.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, a Noted Man In
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the noted leader
of the Liberal party in the dominion,
Is an able man. He was born in the
province of Quebec in 1842, and was
educated in the college of L'Assomp
tion. He afterward took the degree of
B. C. L. at McGill University in Toron
to. - He studied law and was called to
the bar of lower Canada in 18G5.' In
1880 he was appointed queen's counsel.
He has had a brilliant career in the do
minion house of commons. He first at
tracted attention to himself as an ora
tor in a great speech on the Riel ques
tion at the time of the rebellion in the
northwestern territories. It was at the
dead of night, when the house was
tired out and sleepy. But the flood of
eloquence he poured forth, the mighty
power he disclosed, roused the mem
bers to the fact that a new force was
among them, and his success as a lead
er was assured from that moment
Laurier is a tall, slender man, and in
the very prime of his physical and
mental power. He speaks French and
English with equal fluency, and the
suggestion of Gallic accent he has only
serves to lend an additional charm to
an oratory whose rhetoric ls perfect.
One thing about him will make him
dear, perhaps, some day to Americans.
He is an ardent annexationist.

There are some infirmities that only a
surgeon's knife will relieve, and mostly
strictly because of neglect. A neglected

health are res ored. Thousands of cases

HOW INDIANS MEASURE TIME.
They Fix Their Dates by Sleeps and Moons
Our Indians measure time solely by
days, by sleeps, by moons and by win
ters. The Indian has no name for any
subdivision of time less than a day.
When he desires to indicate a shorter
period, he points to the heavens, and
measuring off a space says, "It was as
long as it would take the sun to go from
there to there. " A day is from daylight
to' darkness, "sleep," or night, from
dark to daylight. He has no name for
any day, nor has he any subdivision of
time corresponding to our week. A
moon oommenoes with the first streak
of the crescent in the west and lasts un
til the next one appears, bnt the days of
the moon are neither numbered nor
named. "From winter to winter" is
the nearest approach he has to our term.
The year commences with the first fall
of snow. An Indian will tell you he is
so many winters old, but having no
months or days he never has a birthday.
The Indians who formerly inhabited
the southern part of Texas, where there
is no snowfall, are said to have fixed the
commencement of the year at the first
"norther," a furious and chilling wind
that sweeps from the north and js of fre
quent occurrence during the inter
No year has any name or number fix
ing a sequence or point of reference, but
each band will designate a year by its
most prominent occurrence, as a fight
with hostiles, death of a chief, preva
lenoe of disease, abundance or scarcitv
of food, or'failing anything marvelous
or striking by the name of the stream on
which' was located the winter camp.
But these are mere remembrances, and
excellent as is the Indians memory
tbey, after a few years, fade into a
jumble of disconnected faots without
sequence or usefulness. - " ' .

Meaning of the Word "Omaha."
The name "Omaha" bears testimony
to the long journey of the people, and
reveals some of the causes which brought
about this breaking up into distinct
tribes. It is composed of two words,
which signify "going against the cur
rent," or up the stream. The Omahas
were the people who went up the
stream, while the Qnapaws, their near
of kin, went, as their name reveals,
"with the current, " or down the stream.
The traditions of both these peoples say
that the parting occurred during a hunt
ing expedition, each division finally set
tling in the lands whither they had
wandered apart. This epochal hunt
must have been centuries ago, for the
Quapaws bore their descriptive name in
1540, being mentioned in the Portu
guese narrative of De Soto's .expedition

HOW A METHODIST MINISTER
CARRIES HIS YEARS.
Rev. William Young;, of Oswego, Tells
a Reporter His Secret of (iood Health
-Will Surely Benefit Kve.j one Who
Follows Bia Advice.
From the Times, Oswego, N. Y.
Probably no man is better known or
more highly respected in Oswego, N.
Y., than Rev. William Young, of the
Methodist church. Mr. Young has not
a oonferenoe appointment, but holds a
responsible position with the Oswego
City Savings bank, where he has been
a trusty employe for the past twenty
O In the spring of J 894" Mr. Young
looked as if his time was limited and
that he would be laid at rest with the
great majority before the snow oovered
the ground. But, instead of failing af
predicted, he soon gained a more
healthy look and appeared stronger.
As the months went by this improve
merit continued, until now he is as rug'
ged and apparently as healthy as a
young man of thirty, although his
gray locks denote a more advanced age,
A Times reporter determined tO find
out what had made this great, and it
might be said phenomenal change,
called upon Mr. Young at the bank
and put the question direct and received
the following reply: J
3 'In truth I am a changed man, and
1 owe my present good health to Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. In the spring
of 1894 I was all run down and had
commenced to think that my time
had come. I had to be prescribed for
by physieians, and although I reoeived
temporary relief, the same old trouble
came back again and I was worse than
before. I had no strength or appetite,
and physioally I was in a miserable
condition. After my work I would go
home, but the general lassitude which
hung over me left me without any am
bition, and when I would go to the
table to eat, my appetite failed me and
I would have to leave without taking
hardly any nourishment. My kidneys
were also badly affected, and I was in
utter -despair. One day, here at the
bank, I happened to pick up one of the
local papers, and my eye fell on an
advertisement of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. The advertisement gave a de
scription of a man who, afflicted as I
then was, had been oured by using Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. I was not a be
liever in that kind of dootoring, but
concluded as a last resort to try a box
of the pills, making up my mind that
if they did not help me I . certainly
would not be''rtnjured any. Going
to a drugstore, I purchased a box of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills and' commenced
taking then according to directions.
Very sooii after I began to; feel better
and I saw L had made no' mistake in
trying the pills, and before the first
box was emptied I felt so rauoh im
proved thax I immediately", purodased
another. I had taken severe boxes of
the pills, and at the end c-j' last sum
mer I felt I was oiitireiy cured and
discontinued their use, but always keep
a box handy if occasion requires. 1
am now entirely cured. The lassitude
has left me, my kidneys are all right
and my appetite well, you should see
me at the table. I am a new man
again, and instead of feeling like a
man of fifty, which is my age, I feel
like a youngster of twenty, and I give
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills the full
credit for. this great change. I have
recommended these pills to several of
my neighbors and acquaintances who
have bwn relieved of their complaints. ' '
William Young, being duly sworn,
deposes and says he is the ' geutleman
referred to in the above interview, and
it is true in every respect.
