WATERWORKS AND ELECTRIC UGHT
The citzens will on Monday be
asked to express their opinion as to
the purchase of the Electric Lighting System, and tho oxproprintion
of the Water Works System. The
Council has, Isitli hy corrospon-
dehec and personal Interviews endeavoured to obtain speeitie terms
to Submit to the citizens, but tho
proisisitioii uiiide by tho Water
Works Co., was not satisfactory to
the Mayor and Committee appointed to mot. the Directors.
The City, however, has the power
to expropriate the water works system by giving twelve months notice
of such intention, and this courso
would bo much less expensive than
lo accept the proposition made by
the directors. The expression of
opinion asked for does not bind the
city to anything, but it will give
the council more exact knowledge
of the citizen's desires. All the
information now in the possession
of (he council will lie fully given at
Thursday night's meeting.
With regard to the Klectric Lighting sytem, it is nol considered that
much difficulty will arise in the
purchase of it, nnd the council
hoped to have had very definite
information for the citizens, but
dolay has arisen, owing to the fact
that the matter had to bo fully
taken up with the Directors in
London, England.
The Mayor and Council arc of
the opinion that the ownership of
these utilities will be of great benefit to the city, and arc tuning advantage of the ballot next Monday,
to get a representative expression
of opinion.

was a different future Iron
hail weighed me down wh
United Woollen.     This wai
game,     Neither your pioneer nur your
true   emigrant   sits   down   and   wulU.
Here was something which depended
Bolely upon my own efforts for Its success or ralluro.     And I knew that ii
wasn't possible to fall su dismally but
what   lh**  joy  of  the  struggle  would
always ho mine.
in the meanwhile l carried with me
work  a  notebook  and  during
   u lintir 1 snt down everything
which l thought might be of any possible use in mo, l missed no opportunity of learning oven tho must trivial details. A great deal of the Information was superficial and a groat
deal ,if it was incorrect, but down it
went in the notebook to he re/iscd
later when I became better informed.
I watched my fellow workmen as
much as jpQBSible and piled them with
question, I wanted to know where
the cement came from and In what
proportion it was mixed wilh sand and
gravel nnd stone for different work.
I wanted to know when; the sand and
gravel and stone came from and how
It wns graded, Wherever it was possible 1 secured rough prices for different materials, 1 wanted to knuw
where tlu* lumber was bought and 1
wanted to know how the staging was
built and why it was built. Understand that 1 did not Matter mysolf
that I was fast becoming a mason, a
carpenter, an engineer and a contractor all in ono and all at once. I knew
that the most of my Information was
vague and loose. Half the men who
were doing the work didn't know why
they were doing it and a lot of them
didn't know how they were doing it.
They worked by Instinct and habit.
Then, too, they were a clannish lot and
a jealous lot. They resented my questioning, however delicately I might do
it, and often refused to answer mc
But In spite of this 1 found myself sur
prised   later with   the     fund    i
valuable knowledge 1 acquired
in addition to this I acquired sources
uf Information, I found out where tc
go for the real facts. I learned, for
Instance, whu tor this particular job
was supplying fur the contractor his
cementfand gravel and crushed Btone—■
though, as it happened, this contractor
himself either owned or controlled his
own plant fur the production of most
of his material. However, I learned
something when 1 learned that. Por a
man wiiu had apparently been in inisiness all his life, I was densely Ignorant
of even the fundamentals of business.
This idea of running the buslnoss back
to the sources of the raw material was
a now Idea Lo mo. 1 had not thought
of the contractor as owning his own
quarries and gravel pits, obvious as the
advantage was. I wanted to know
where tli** Lools wore bought and how
much they cost- frum the engines and
hoisting cranes ant! carrying Byslem
down to pick-axes, crowbars and
shovels. I made a noto of the fncl
tliat many uf the smaller Implement*-:
wer«* md cared for properly and oven
tried tu estimate how with proper at
tcntlon  the life uf a  plcl
prolonged, I Joyed ii
every sueh opportunity ns this, no
matter how trivial it appeared later.
It was just sueh details as these whieh
gave reality to my dream.
I figured out how many cubia feel
of earth per day per man was being
handled hero and how this varied under different busses. I pried and listened ami questioned ami figured oven

oyefl nnd ears wide open. II was

nl him where'd they'd fi-t-1 like knifing

sent down to the house a wreath of
ilowers half as big as a cart wheel.
Thoro was scarcely a day when some
old lady didn't manage to see Dan al

With a mumbled idea that always made

In the ward Is me grandmlther."
Those same grandmothers stood him
In good stead later in his life, for every
single grandmother had some forty
grandchildren and half of these had
votes. But Dan wasn't looking that
far ahead then. Twu facts rather distinguished him al the start; he didn't
oithor drink or smoke, He didn't
have any opinions upon tho subject,
hut he was one of tlic rare Irishmen
horn that way. Now and then you'll

leading   me  to score  him  some  fifty
points   in   my   estimate   of   him   as   a
good workman, I was indifferent to
tills side of his character. The thing
that Impressed nn* most was a quality
of' leadership he seemed to possess.
There was nothing masterful about It,
You didn't look to see him lead In any

ask myself why in the devil I pulled

was because I was pulling with Dan
Rafferty 1 said all I knew about it.
It seemed lo me thai any man who
secured Dan as a boss would already

The   Emigrant  Spirit
That fall th*' hoy passed his entrance

chool in the state—lhe city high
school. If he had been worth a million he couldn't have bad better advantages. 1 was told lhat ihe graduates of this school entered college
wiili a higher average than the graduates of most of the big preparatory
schools. Certainly ihey had just as
good Instruction, and if anything better discipline. There was more competition here and a real competition,
Many of the pupils wero foreign born
and a much larger per cent, of them
children of foreign born. Their parents had been over here long enough
to realize what an advantage an education was and the children went at
their work with tbe feeling that their
future depended upon tbeir application here.
The boy's associates might have been
more carefully selected al some fashionable school, hut i was already beginning to realize that solecled associates aren't always select associates
and lhat even if they ore this Is more
of a disadvantage than an advantage,

In lhe meanwhile I had not neglected
tin* otber men. At every opportunity
I talked with them. At the beginning
1 made it a point to learn their names
nnd addresses, which 1 Jotted down
my honk. 1 learned something from
Ihem of lhe padrone system and tin
unfair contracts intu which they wen
trapped. 1 learned their likes and
dislikes,   their ambitions, and as  mucli
as possible about iheir families. n
all came hard al first, Imt little by
little as 1 worked wilh litem I found
them trusting mo more with their •confidences.
In this way, then, tbe lirsl snmmei
passed,     Both Ruth and the boy in
llii: meanwhile were just as busy about
their respective tasks as I was. The
latter look to the gymnasium work like
a duck to water and In his enthusiasm

at the y.M.C.A. They w* re all nin-

wonderfully. 1 was careful to follow

THE FIRST OIL PAINTINGS
Tlie curator of the Museum at Ghent
has resolved one of the chief difficulties
iu tiie history of painting, namely, tbe
attribution of the Invention of painting In oils to Van Eyck in 1428. ll
has been known that the method of
painting in oils was used by a monk
named Theophtlus In the twelfth century, and tbat statues, standards, banners, and manuscript miniatures were
decorated by means of it both In Germany and Flanders previously io the
work of Van Byck. Vet a strong tradition has always associated Van Kyck
witli  Its primary discovery.
From a German wilier of lhe sixteenth century, i.'ari Van Maude, who
retained connections with successors of
the Vnn l.yck school, lhe curator of
lhe Ghent .Museum, has, however, exacted ilu* following paragraph:
"Van Byck covered his paintings, ex-
uled lu distemper, with a coaling
of tils own composition, luto wliieli a
particular kind of oil entered as an
element. This procedure had great
success, owing lo the brilliant
ll Imparted lo the works,
inn painters had sought
in vain, having failed In tbelr efforts
owing to Ignorance of the proper process."
According lo Ihls authority, therefore. Van lSyck Invented a process
which had effects equivalent to tllOBO
of pointing i" oils—namely, that of
brilliant surface and that of resistance
to damp and even to washing, but tbls
process was a process of oil coaling.
Tbls Interpretation of Van Byek_
leorot correspond* with the known faat
that Alfonso, King of SlOtly, only sent
Aiitniieiiu uf Messina to Bruges for
the purpose of penetrating Van Byek's
secret after be bad discovered that a
palming by Van l-.yck which be possessed was Impervious to water, Again,

BISMARCK'S BOSWELL
Nc\i to itoHweii, Dusch is perhaps
(he must faithful, watchful, and devoted biographer that ovor a groat
mnn had, Indeed, the personality of
liusch Is almost as Interesting as lhat
.if Bos Well- who was a far more clever
fellow than his contemporaries thought)
nnd who was in some respects ns gronl

"11 olher occasions be excites Uo- event
man's wmib, ami Bismarck thunders
at him with Olympian fury. And yet
even in those moments, when he has
given Bismarck good cause for anger
by his Indiscretions—for liusch had
ihr supreme gifl of the true biographer
in lieing absolutely and Incurably Indiscreet—you can see that /the "Singer
uf the terrible man is short-lived; tliat,
nfter all, he loves Busch and is grateful to him; and moreover, you get the
welcome feeling that his character, so
grim, often so cynical, sometimes so
terrible, is very human afler all; and
lie has no sooner given a blow to one
who loves him than he Is eager to
soothe and  to caress him.
There was nothing of the flunkey in
the attitude of liusch. For him there
was only one man, only one hero, In
lids Titanic struggle; all thc rest ho
despised, or even hated. Indeed, he

Into close contact with him; all but

as Bismarck was called, liusch speaks
quite freely about even the highest
royalties. Ho reduces the Emperor to
his proper proportions as merely a
super in the great drama in which Bismarck played the star role; Frederick)
the next Emperor, he dismisses as tin
"■incubus," whoso death Is a relief to
him; the dismissal uf Bismarck hy the
present Emporor he describee as
"base," And as for lhe Grown Princes
and King and Grand Dukefli Ituseh
dismisses them all as frivolous creatures who wasted tbe time nnd tried
ihe nerves of the great Master, liusch
does mil stop there; he is the chief
agenl in that warfare against women
which Bismarck waned for so many
years, lie assails lhe Kmpress Augusta over and over again; he assails
with even greater vehemence her who
incline the Empress Frederick; ami
no man contributed so much to create
ihe atmosphere uf utTpopulartty ami
misunderstanding in which that poor
woman lived as Husch, Willi Ills eternal hnrplngs against "die Englandor-
hm"—-tho Englishwoman—an epithet
tliat did nol help her to lhe scaffold
as "L'Autltrlchlonno" helped poor
Marie Antoinette, but whicli did make
a Calvary of much of her unhappy
life. I shall have to return to ihls
important part of the. life of Bismarck,
and, weighing the question in the Impartiality of the great Court of Literature, attempt to hold the balance evenly  between   the conflicting parties.
CIDER   EIGHTY  YEARS OLD
A drink of eider eighty years old is
a novelty, nnd when it comes oul of
a keg fished out

tery.
It was back in lhe very early thirties
either 18-0 or IS31, according to the
tradition handed down liy the oldest
Inhabitants, that the steamer Red
Jacket mot with disaster—went down
in something like forty feet of water.
The boat was a total loss and very
litlle of her cargo of general merchandise was ever recovered. She lay
there in tiie sand and gradually went
to pieces, and as the years went liy
the sands covered what remained. The
boat and the story of her loss became
only a memory.
Early hist fall Captain Miller, of Detroit, In cruising about In search of
sand dropped anchor iu tlu* old north
channel opposite Algonac and began
scoopine; up ureal quantities of the
lake bottom. Prom time to time lie
picked up pieces of au old wreck. Now
It was a section of smokestack, now a
part of an engine, and Thursday night
the clam shell let go of an object that
rolled down the sand pile to the deck,
and whhh on Inspection proved to be
a five-gallon keg. Somebody started
tt> throw It overboard) imt finding It
heavy and' tightly sealed set It aside
for f uff her Investigation. Tlie Investigation was hastened whon tlio
Clam ghell hit the keg and broke out
a stave. Tin- sailors sinolled it, Hun
lasted, and finding It wcii flavored, with
sailor's disregard of consequences,
began drinking, Captain Miller came
m the scene In lime to save about a
gallon and a half of the eider.
One would expect elder tbat old to be
as hard as nails, with a song and
dance in every glass, but it was nul.
The best champagne never had a finer
flavor, and age had mellowed It until It
was as smooth as oil. On tho end of
the keg was branded the words "Genuine New York State Apple Juice."
and the flavor proved the statement.
It would have passed inspection under ttie pure ftiod and drug act.
The explanation of the elder's sweetness is fi uml ln the fact that It was
practically In cold storage for all these
years. lt was dug out from ten feet
below (he bottom of lhe lake at a
place where the water Is forty feet
deep. At tlmt depth It was always
kept cool, und the sand over tbe keg
kept It from going to pieces. The
keg was of oak, Iron-bound, made to
stand hard ii-'.n:'' and to hold against
severe pressure. Still II showed Its

as a dome; he could carry it in ample
open spaces, not in the streets.
"Then the old man had an idea: he
was always thinking up wise thlnjs,
lie reminded the giant of So-and-so's,
that was a hardware store on Main
street, where Ihey had an awning that
came nut from over the second story
windows, an awning that was almost
high enough for the giant to stand up
straight under. And the old man
siiKpested to the giant that If he got
caught in q shower again lie make for
tliat hiiw.ii awntngi and lhe giant actually did that once—got In under tbat
awning Willi 11 lot of other people
Standing ground under It :it the same
time-and looking up at him admiring-*
ly; and this experience sort of smoothed out and wiped out the recollection
of that olher experience of tbe doorway.
"But still be couldn't always he near
Hint awning when a shower came up,
could ho? Certainly not. And he didn't know What place In* might have to
tret into. And the upshot of it all
was lhat afler that winter, when the
show was back there in winter quarters, the (-hint never took any chances.
He never gave himself the pleasure of
walking down into town except In settled fair weather."
SOMETHING ABOUT GLASS
The art of making glass originated a
very   long  lime ago.       U   is  often said
that a party of Phoenician merchants,
while cooking Iheir food 011 (he sands
n«ur (he seashore, noticed lhal the
ashes of lhe plant with which they
mado   iheir  lire  caused  some  of   the
sand to melt nud form a vllreomi substance, imi ii is a proven fact ibat
more than -1,1100 years ago glass bottles containing red wine were represented on monuments of the fourth
dynasty or Egypt; Thoro la apparently no record of glass being used Tor
glaslhg purposes Iii ancient times. ll
was Introduced Into this country somn-
where about 076 A. D, hv the Venerable    llede,    who   employed    it    in    tho
adornment of church windows. ln
HMD, however, certain Venetian gluss-
uinkers arrived 111 London, and II is
from thai dale tliat the collector or
old  glass usually  makes his start.
We genorally find the base of an
old glasfl io be larger than that of a
modern specimen; It is also rough
where the piece of metal has been
broken off the pontil. Wine aud similar glasses slope from the centre of
the foot to the edgO. The slope Is
sometimes very slight, but Is always
perceptible. The folded foot is not
often found in specimens of a Inter
date than the eighteenth century.
Small chips and balr-tines wilt be
found under tbe foot of an old glass
whieh has been In constant use; also,
if the bowl be carefully examined, It
will be found to be slightly frilled with
miniature air bubbles and stuns. Some
modem forgeries have a peculiar Untie
nf green. Tills is never seen In old
sses. In other, forgeries the rim of
lhe bowl has a harsh. sharp edge,
whtlst the margin, instead of being soil
ml more or less rounded, presents a
flattened appearance. The texture of
modern glass often has a cold steely
hue, devoid of that mellowness ehar-
terlstng the eighteenth century
spirals, which up till now have never
boen equalled. Most modern glass
looks while when placed by the side
of an old specimen, tlie latter generally having a yellowish tinge, ami in
some cases a touch of sapphire blue
appears, due to an admixture of lead
In the manufacture. Venetian glass
is noted fur Its wonderful lightness,
Its combined lightness and strength is
mainly attributable to the fact that
the Venthin craftsmen allowed no lead
to enter Into the composition of their
glass.

GOOD AIR ESSENTIAL TO HEALTH
Food) water, and air are three great
essentials lo bodily Welfare. No one
would think of eating putrid food. No
one would deliberately drink defiled
water. Whenever the water becomes
polluted ami a typhoid epidemic results,
there Is a great outcry, nnd Immense
sums of money are spent to Insure
future purity of thc water supply.
Knowingly no one partakes uf had food
or bad water. We should look with
disgust upon those who did. Hut foul
air, as filthy and as harmful as either
bad wnter or bud food, Is breathed unconcernedly day after day by the majority of people.
Bad air alTeels our digestion harmfully, gives us headaches, poisons our
bodies by slow degTOOS, and makes our
children dull or altogether ruins them.
But we cannot see Ihe foul stuff we
are putting Into our systems, and so
we go on uiiconcerneilly breathing In
tilth. Our houses are stuffy with vitiated air and the smell of cooking; our
factories are tilled wllh dust or Unt
or metal filings and horrible odors; our
curs reek with foul air; our churches
are cesspools of atmospheric filth; and
the very air smells lo heaven with its
load of smoke, soot, stirred-up street
BWOOplngS, factory odors, and poisonous gases. The nir to the rliiht of us,
the ulr lo tbe lefl of us, (be air lu
front of us, Is filthy and putrid. Yet
we Immerse ourselves In It and wonder
why we feel bad. Pour months of the
year, when 11 Is too hot thai we cannot help It, we let In fresh air, and feel
line. The eight olher months we soak
ourselves In dermal sowago, and die.
Health statistics show llmt tin* death

higher Minn in summer. Bo we drond

Vigor,    Pnr   cold   air   Is   a   I utile.     But

WHY NOT JOIN?
We are about to form the Telephone
Listeners' Mutual Protective Association.       Will  you  join?      There  are  no
dues, tlic only requirement being a
little firmness and Belt-control on your
part.
The Idea Is Ihls:
Have you ever- been called up over
the telephone by some man, who. In
order to save his own time, orders his
stenographer, or private secretary to
get you on the wire first? Then,
when you are on the wire, and wailing,
he saunters leisurely up anil tells yuu
whnt lie wants.
Suppose, for example, that your
name Is Smith. This Is what happens:
The bell rings.      You answer.
"Hello?"
A young woman's voice then says:
"Is this Mr. Smith?"
"Yes.     Who "
"Walt a moment, please. Mr. Jones
wishes to speak lo you."
You wait. In a moment, Jones—
when he has finished what lie has beon
doing) having been informed that you
-Smith -an* waiting for him, comes to
the telephone.
Now, In order to become a member of
thu Telephone Listeners' Mutual Protective Association, all you have to do
Is tu ngree that hereafter, whenever
anybody calls you up over the telephone and delegates someone else to
get you first, Is, immediately upon ascertaining tbat fact, lo hang up Iho
receiver and let him do ft all over
again,
This Is what you should do;
The hell rings. You answer. A
woman's voice.
"is tills Mr. Smith?"
"Yes."
"Wait a moment.     Mr. Jones "
Al this polut you hang up the receiver and proceed with the regular
order of business. In a few moments
tho  hell   rings  again,      Same   voice.
"Is this Mr. Smith?"
"Ves"
"Walt, please, a "
Once more you ham: up llie receiver
aud, whistling nl your wrok, proceed
as before, lu a few moments moro
the beii rings ngnln.    This time ii is
a   man's   voice.
"Is this .Mr. Smith?"
"Yes."
"This is Jonos,"
"I have been frying to get you for
some iime.:'
"Yes, Jones, 1 know It, but you sen
I am a member of the Telephone Listeners' Mutual Protective Association,
nud our rule is lint when anyone rtn-is

HEAVES
Heaves, nu common among ranrh
horses. Is almost wholly due to feeding too large quantities of bay. Colic
and other forms of Indigestion are
often due to feeding large amounts of
bulky food. Aside from physical In-
Jury to the horse, the feeding of excessive amounts of hay la a waste
that should be conserved. A horse
weighing 1,000 pounds will do more
and keep In better health on fifteen
pounds of alfalfa a day than on twenty
pounds, ln fact, fifteen pounds Is sufficient bulky food for a horso of that
size. A horse weighing 1,600 to 1,800
pounds does not need marc than
twenty pounds a day witli some grain.
Feed the 1,000 pounds horse ten pounds
of good hay at night and five pounds in
the morning, and he will perform moro

A sage has said that the "fullness of |
life Is measured by the number of
vibrations one gives and receives." We
have heard a great deal of late about
personal vibrations, and the subject
seems to be in tiie air. We never knew
that we had such things until a Utile
while ago, and now it seems, according
to the scientists, that that Is all we
are—just vibrations; and the reason
that Mary Jane is different from Ellen
Louise is simply because her vibrations
are different.
We are a success or a failure according to our vibrations and ihe way
we use them; for wo are learning that
we can mako changes in our own personal vibrations Jusi as we may modify our health by a mailer of did.
Now it seems that there aro a lot
of good people In the world to-day Jusi
wallowing around In a slough of Ironlde and sorrow just because Ihey don'l
know Ihey possess such a IhltiK* as
vibrations, so thai they might manipulate Ihem ami change Ihelr situation
into a sort of paradise,
This Vibration business, however,
was known I<> tho ancient Creeks, wbo
mado   life   about    as   Ibey   liked   for   a
while or imiii thoy losl the combination.
Now, it seems that whon wo become
acquainted with our own vibrations
we must do cortain things to fulfil the
purpose of  * life lii'ic, and thai purpose, ii seoms, is Indicated by our
vibrations. I'.y following them, and
not going contrary to (heir Intent, wo
cnn have Just aboul what wo want
hen* on Ihls Utile uld earlb. Wc can
acquire lhe Kingdom of Heaven in fact,
and that, according to Scripture, is
within us.
Scientists lell us lhat everything exists because of vibration, und that the
solid granite ledge, the steel bar, and
marble monument are pulsating wllh
quivering rhythmic motion Incessantly,
for Ihey would no longer exist If vibration  ceased.
Furthermore, human beings are
highly vibratory, and as we vibrate so
Is our disposition, our temperament,
our good looks, etc.
But we don't vibrato any old way;
there are set rules and a fine lot of
regulations for each of us, and for our
peculiar vibrations. We may learn
just what these rules and regulations
are, and in Just what key our own personal quiverings are pitched, und what
they mean.
As I hnve said, this sort of thing
is an old, old science. Pythagoras was
a pastmaster at propounding it, and
five hundred years before Christ was
born was teaching men how to know
a little of themselves.
Pythagoras connected the vibrations
with the science of numbers, and worked it all out so beautifully thai we today have been able to add litlle to his
plans.
Now, according to the mystic philosophers, these vibrations moan everything to a person, and by holding the
key to his own vibrations he can save
himself a lot of sorrow, for he learns
to know what nature Intended In giving  him  Just   that   particular  kind   of
vibrations, if ho lives so that he does
not keep ihem jangling out of tune all
the time, but in harmony, he can bring
joy and success to himself and to those
about  him.
It is very easy to learn just what
one's vibrations are if one is shown
tho key. They are founded on the
birth numbers and on lhe name numbers; and, according to Pythagoras,
the heavens and earth vibrate to Blngle
numbers or digits of numbers, 1 to {•
being digits, and vibrations are found
in 1. _. 8, 4, 5, fi. 7. S. '.',  11, and 22.
This Is the way one goes to work to
find one's vibrations, First lbo alphabet is arranged as follows, under a row

If your name is Mary Jane Smith,
for example, this Is tbe way you get}

H—S

Threo is tho digit of Mary and of
Jane, and 6 Is the 1lle.1t of Smith. These
three numbers musL bo added and reduced  to get the final digit,  thus:
8
:t
fi
Thus, the mime dlgll of Mary June
Smith Is 8, Later I will (ell you what
II means to vibrate to 3. Hut first we
will proceed to gol Mary June's birth
digit.
Suppose she Is born Roptiinber 18,
1870.
September Is (he ninth month.
Thc digit of tho eighteenth day Is
I), 1 and K added together, and the digit
of the year, 1 plus K plus 7 plus 0,
equulB HI, equals 7.
The digit of tho whoio date, then,
Is:
9 — ninth month
9 — digit of day of month
7 — digit of year
16
Thus  tho  birth   vibration  of  Mary
Jnno Is 7.
Mary Jane Smith, or anyone else
whose name digit Is 3, is emotional and
impressionable, according to the scientists, and is given to expression; but
care should be taken what is expressed,
as unless a 3d vibration lives up to his
ideals, he Is apt to be swayed by the
people of his environment. People like
Mary Jane, who vibrate to 3 either In
name or birth digit, ure upt to turn to
music, literature, and the arts, us the
intent of their vibration is expression;
ni d those In 3 whu do not give expression In some creative way are apt
to be unhappy and restless; and when
giving full expression to the highest
Ideals, a 3 Is very happy and contented,
radiating lovo and sweetness and making many friends.
Mary Jane'.", birth vibration of 7
means thai tilings come rather easily
to her In life. Those who are In this
vibration do things in a finished manner and very quickly; Ibey are whal
la called capable.
Thoy are dainty and nice about their
persons; dress well and in excellent
taste on all occasions, oven when
roughing It. They ore usually rcllned
and Olegant, If living up lo the intent
of their vibrations. People of this vibration are usually keenly musical, and
have within themselves lhe element of
harmony and of music.
A 7 is not very successful in partnership with anyone. He can do things
best by himself, unhampered by Die assistance of others, He Is usually alert
ami frequently nervous.
Now, let us go back to the vibration
of 1 and explain all of lhe digits so
Ibal anyone finding bis vibration digit
according to tbo directions given can
learn what such vibrations mean, and
what Is expected of him.
Numbers l, 2 and 3 tire higher vibrations than 4, 5, 6, 7, which are vibrations In which a person has to struggle
more or less with himself, and the so-
Cfl I led free vibrations which are the
highest and best of all arc 8, 9, 11, and
22. People bearing these are not found
in BUCh places, the reason is that they
have not led a life harmonious with
their vibrations. Tbe consequent chaos
has made them fall below their natural heritage of place.
If one is In tlic vibration of 1 by
birth or name, unity is the chief thing.
One must hold oneself well together
and be steadfast. A 1 should not be
resentful, even if injustice is done him.
Many who nre born In this vibration
are mystics, as will lie proven by some
of thc most famous ones of history,
such ns Maeterlinck, Emerson, Socrates, Hrownlng, and others. Those
in the 1 vibration seem to have a cosmic understanding of life, a mystical,
natural knowledge.
When a person in this vibration does
not follow lliis line of thought he becomes the most miserable of mortals.
When the thoughts and feelliiKs are
turned toward mystic philosophical
things and perfect unity is maintained,
the person passes Into lhe free vibration of 11 later In life.
If one does uot live in perfect unity
he Is subject to disaster of some sort,
financial  or social,  every  seven  years.
tine of ihe least interesting vibrations Is l!. That does not mean thai
people in this vibration are not Interesting personally People are often
very changeable who are in _, for they
are either very spiritual or very nni-
mal, or waver from one to the other.
ll the physical life Is followed tno
closely and ono eats, drinks and is too
merry, much of the tlmo, a _ becomes
n physical wreck, much more quickly
lhan the average person. People In
ihls vibration are cither Very 1 strong
or very weak; thoy go to extremes,
and  are never In a medium state.
Whon they are III they are very,
very 111, They are very sensitive to
smelts.
Threo   has   already   been   explained,
Those lu the Ith vibration hnve to
he' very energetic. They cannot depend upon others to help tbem along
through Uf*'- They must face things
alone.
Tliey must never be in debt, never
ask favors, and should always pay
more than Ihey receive If tliey hope
to get the full benefit of life. This is
really a wonderful vibration, as many
wbo are born In ll become great and
famous.
Patriots and statesmen and great
phllaiiliopliists are In 4. They are
physical and mental giants usually,
They should be ureal studeitls.
They should never cease to study
ami lo he their hesl should take the
highest college ami university courses,
ami ail through life should eontlnut
studying, Sueh people usually under*
slnnd ami enjoy music.
Those In (he Mb Vibration arc tremendously   strenuous.   They   are   the
most  aetU ml healthy  people In lhe
world, Their eiiercy knows no bounds
If Ihey are living op to the Intent of
their vibrations. Tbey hnvo oloar
memories, good Intellect, and are bold
and daring.
Events follow each olher quickly In
their lives, Ihey are frequently great
travellers, and get more out of life
lhan any olher people. They do nol
genorally care very much for money,
and It comes and goes with them;
they ure usually nmre Interested with
life Itself.
Their minds are alert and vitally
Interested In everything. Tliey are
always looking fnr something to instruct and entertain them. They have
a taslo fnr about everything In the
world and nro apt to havo a smattering of knowledge of evory kind.
They are usually very fasclnntlng
and charming people. They generally
like people and rarely hate deeply. Thoy
SMo/i'sCure
hops coughs i_.-r.-i_a
•Should not live alone. They arc intended for companionship, and solitude is very had for a 5. They are
mildly religious, have respect for customs and conventions to a certain degree, and are wholosome, likable people,
Theodore Roosevelt Is a 5 In botlt
name and birth and he lives up -o tho
lasl letter of his vibrations usually.
Whenever he does not disaster threatens.
Those In the 6th vibration make
good parents generally. Thoy nre not
generally among the hard-working
people like the 4th vibration people,
or even tbe 5, who are so strenuous.
They are intended for positions of
lighter work. Hard work depresses
these people.
Such people should be carefully dressed, be very neat and dainty, and study
color effects. Sloppiness is usually
foreign to a fi. The people of this vibration  usually  love children.
Cure should be taken to keep cheerful, for depression with a fi is deeper
and more disastrous than with those
of othor vibrations. Lifo will be a
failure unless a cheerful spirit Is kepi,
scolding upsets a (i terribly, either
given or received,
Seven has already been described.
We now bogln on the so-callod free
numbers- 8, 8, 11, and 22, These aro
.ho Strongest numbers and are usually
signs of great character and intense
Individuality, Great souls are found
nmong iho people bearing these numbers,
Thoy are usually the people whom
weaker souls turn to In time of need.
Hul when the people of theso vibrations do not leatl the sort of lives that
their vibrations intend, Ihey nro the
most pitiful creatures, nnd are wretchedly unhappy, misunderstood and full
of suffering',
An s Is often the head of some great
hanking institution maintained for the
benefit of tho poor. Great organizers
or charitable societies are often In 8.
They give their services freely, and
without return.
They work for the good of the race.
Many times one finds that great physicians and ministers and charity lawyers are in 8. They usually .seek wilh
great conscientiousness und care to
provide for tlieir family's welfare. They
give largely and without any expectation of gratitude.
A person in the 9th vibration Is usually a person of mental force, but
high as a 9 is he Is frequently surrounded with many temptations, and
when he falls, he falls further than
anyone else. Many a person born to
the strength and power of 9 has become a debauchee; when, however, a
9 lives up to the perfect Intent of his
V-brauons he becomes a fin*- specimen
of humanity.
It is the intent of 9 to deal largely
with humanity. Such people come
very near lo realizing the sense of a
universal brotherhood of man. They
feel a great kindness toward their fellow man. A 9 who Is a judge Is always the most Just and humane of his
profession,
Such people are usually magnetic
and nre beloved.' As physicians they
arc 11 great success and very dearly
beloved. If elergmen. they are apt to
be very broad and sweeping in their
views and rather unorthodox. They
arc good at expression of any sort, nnd
make good artists, musicians, and writers.
They have a natural understanding
of occult things, Every form of excess
must be avoided liy a 9, as he • r she
cannot Indulge as those in lower vibrations can. The penalty Is muon
greater and much more swlfi and sure.

THE EGG—A MODERN MY8TERY
ln the good old days on tho farm, an
i gg was on egg. There never was any
question about It. It remained an egg
until consumed, shipped to the market
or given a course of treatment that
evolved from It 11 chicken.
Thc modern egg is a mystery, lt
travels under as many aliases as u
successful sneak thief. It has attained the added dignity of caste. Even
Iiiilbi has not more different classes
of people thun there are varieties of
eggs.
Recently one of the Industrious imss
agents who write mnrkci news for The
'rones, tnenllulled 110 less than five   lil-
forent kinds of eggs, each ol which
had a SOpOl   to price.
Those lhal brought the best prices
were "fresh ranch OggS." However.
the mimes uml prloos ranged downward as follows: "Best Eastern oggs,"
"guaranteed oggs," "good eggs," nml
"1 d cooking OggS."
It will be perceived there aro two
classes not menllniied In this remark-
,1 iih* list plain eggs, without any title
of OHO sort or another, and bad eggs.
Possibly they do not class In the
latter because they fear someone might
(ry to buy n gross of produce dealers
for tho price quoted In tIm advertisement.
What Is nn egg? Anyone who can
tell after reading (his voluminous list,
would score heavily -ns a successor to
the Into lamented Lloyd of puzzle fame

WHEAT, BARLEY
OATS, FLAX
Owing to so much unfavorable weather, many farmers over Western ,
Canada have gathered al least part of their crop touched by front or
otherwise water damaged. Howovor, thruugh thc large shortage in
Com, outs, barley, fodder, potatoes and vegetables, by thu unusual heat
and drought of last summer In (he United Stales. Mas tern Canada aud
Western EBurope, there Is going to tie a steady demand at good prices
for all lho grain Western Camilla has raised, no matter what Its quality
inny he.
So much variety In quality makes It Impossible for those less experienced to Judge the full value tlmt should be obtained for such crnln,
therefore the farmer never stood more In need of the services of the
experienced ami reliable grain commission man to act fur him, in tho
looking  after  selling  of  his  grain,  than ho does tht ssensun.
Farmers, you will therefore do well for yourselves not to accept
street or track prices, but to ship your grain by carload direct to Fort
William or t'ort Arthur, to ho handled by us ln a way that will get
for you alt thero Is In It, Wo make liberal advances when desired, on
receipt of shipping hills for cars shipped. We novcr buy your grain on
our own account, but net as your agents ln selling it to the best advantage for your account, and we do so on a fixed commission of lc. per
bushel.
Wo havo mado a specialty of this work for many years, ond aro
well known over Westorn Cannda for our experience In tho grain trade,
reliability, careful attention to our customers' Interests, and promptness
ln makng settlements.
Wo Invite farmers who havo not yet employed us lo write to ui for
shipping Instructions and market Information, and In regard to our
standing In the Winnipeg Ornln Trade, and our Hnanclal position, we
bog to refer you to tho Union Dank of Canada, nnd any of Its branches,

the   experience   of   whal    i-   nni-l
wanted and likely lo provo remunerative. First I would poinl oul

RHEUMATISM
13 Months' Suffering
"Dear Sir:
"I wisli you lu put my letter on record fur the aal-0 of suffering humanity. I have suffered 18 months wllh
Muscular Rheumatism In my buck. I
huve spent at least $20.00 on pills and
liniments during thai time, but nothing
would ease me of tho pain,—In fact it
was a chronic; pain. For tho.se long 18
months It stayed right with mo, sometimes convulsive and cramp-tike, causing me to groan and cry aloud. Every
moment was torture. I could not turn
ln bed without yelling out. Now 1 will
always lilcss the duy when I Ilrst started to rub lu and (o lake Internally
•Nerviline.' After using four bullies,
my pains have lefl me. I shall always
take nil my 1ml ta 'Norvilino,' and can
honestly say It's the poor man's best
friend, because It will always drive
away from yuu the Demon -Pain,
"Yours truthfully,
"Thomas Gobs."
Use only Norvilino.   Sold In 26c and
site bottles tin' world ovor.
FOR   DRIVERS  TO  REMEMBER
Provide your horse wilh a large,
warm blanket for such times as he is
standing still and exposed to the cold.
Don't negloot tht* shoeing. It Is vital
on a slippery pavement.
Don't over use the whip simply because you have il. It Is a very poor
driver who makes a blow the starting
signal.
Give the horso an occasional full
day's rest. It will add to hts value
and capacity for work.
Always be kind lo your horse. It
pays.
If you are a good driver, your horse
will show it.

A recent remark by tho ten-year-old
son of a Cleveland engineer would Indicate that the youngster bad been
more or less conscious of tlie "shop
talk" wherein his father nnturnlly Indulges from time to time al home.
A pug-dog belonging to neighbors
who were awny for tbe summer wns
Intrusted to the care of this boy. The
pug wus so old and fut that he ex-
perlenced great diiiiculty in breathing,
a circumstance that caused him to
snore When be slept.
Now the lirst night tbe dog spent In
his new quarters be snored so frightfully that practically thu whole family
was kept awake all night long. Thfl
engineer and his wife wero much perplexed for they had agreed lhat their
boy should care for the dog until the
return of its owners. They fell, however, that they must sleep; and*so after break lasl a council of war was
held, during whlcb l!ie cause of the
disturbance lay contentedly on a rug
wilh  his  Hat  nose  between  bis  paws.
Finally the ten-year-old ventured au
observation,
"1 know why that dug snores," he
snld.
"Well, why?" asked the father.
"His nose Is so Short Ibat them's no
draught,"

P
A Trial Honeymoon
, fly Thomas L. Massoii)
"We should never be able to gel
along on a honeymoon/' said Gerty,
almost tearfully.
"Why not cut out the honeymoon'.'"
1 suggested.
"As if I hadn't been setting my heart
on It for years—I mean, of course,
ever since 1 was engaged!"
Gerty Is tbe most lovable creature
in the world, and I have alwnys been
lenient to her whims, but at times she
has tried my patience. The idea of
being In love with George—such a
sterling fellow as George—and then
calmly discussing tbe question of bis
desirability on a honeymoon!
"Why shouldn't you get along with
George on a honeymoon?" I asked
sharply. "I'm sure be yields to you In
everything. He has spoiled you already. 1 should he ashamed, Gerty, to
suy such a thing, if I were you!"
"I'm Hot! And 1 moan every wonl
of it. You see, Qeorge is awfully
peculiar about some things! ami so am
I. When he travels, he wants everything hts own way. I kimw Just how
tt will he. lie will not even ask nie
what road to lake, hm im will go off
uml buy Om tickets, au daiiiiiniucc
lhal everything hi ready. Now I want
to kimw exactly where we are going,
and Just how we are going, hei ore-
baud and if I don'l know, il Upsets nm
completely. I don'l like things soltlod
for me iu an offhand way, Just as If l
were  a  child."
"Well, If you can't gel along wllh
George  when   you   travel,   how   do   ynu
expect   to manage   li when   you are
Sllll?"
"Thai's quite different. Al home
we shall understand oach othor perfectly. George |8 Justice itself, I
am quite sure that be will never Interfere In my province. lt Is only when
Hume one has to drive ahead that he
wants to hold the reins."
"It will he a good lesson lo you," 1
replied) rather warmly. "Besides," I
continued, "how do you know thut
George Is so had us you make oul?
You've never been on a honeymoon
With  him,   bave  you?"
'i»f course not! Uut I have heen on
short trips, and 1 assure you, Jo, it
was all I could do to stuml It."
"Well, then." I said sternly, "why do
you bring up such nn impossible ques-
flion, wiih no solution? You say you
want to go on a honeymoon with
George, that you bave counted upon
It, and in the next breath lhat you
won't do it."
"Jo." sbe said, "hnve you ever been
to  .Vushlngton and Old Point?"
"Certainly not."
"Will you go—wtth us?"
"How?    When?"
"Right awuy, of course. On a trial
honeymoon as a chaperon. You see,
I want to try lt out beforehand. After we ure married, of course, It will
be loo lute. George will have me
then, and all the advantage; but If we
cun go now, ns sort of lest, why, it
may huve an effect upon our whole
future. You know, dear, I am so anxious to bave our married life a success.
"Indeed!" I said with a satirical
smile. "You mean lhat you want to
get George placed!"
At this moment there was a cheery
Whistle in the hall, the door opened
nnd George came bustling in. Ills face
fell as be saw me, but I determined to
hold my ground. lies Ides, 1 had a record or never making u gooseberry out
of myself.
"Shall I tell him?" I said to Gerty.
"Certainly."
"Listen attentively, my dear George."
1 said. "You two are to go on a trial
honeymoon — Washington and Old
Point 1 am to go along us chuperon.
Tbe Idea Is, briefly, tbnt when you
travel, you are an autocrat; you do
everything, decide everything, Gerty
thinks this will  make her unhappy—"
"Well, I can't help It." said George.
"I'm liuill that way."
'Van you start tomorrow morning?"
I continued, disregarding bis Interruption. "Washington nnd oui Point
-und return?"
"I nm your slave. What's Inisiness
compared with orders from you?"
"Don't be silly." said Gerty. "Well,
then, that's settled.     We go!"
"And Gerty doc*, everything—that's
your Idea, Gerty, Isn't It?" 1 asked.
"That's exactly my idea," said Gerty.
"How about thc expenses?" Bald
George.
"I'll furnish you u hill when we get
back. It's understood—we are to go
on a trial honeymoon. I am to manage the whole affair and If you let
mc do lt nil, I nm to marry you."
"And If not?" asked George.
Gerty  frowned at  him.
"Wo won't cross lhat bridge until
we come to It, sir," she said.
"All right!" aald George.
The next morning, lu* was on hand
at tin* station at the appointed time,
with   handbag  aud   slick,   and   wltb  a
(lower   In   hia   buttonhole—ut   which
Gerty gated rather ruefully.
"Everybody  who goes on n  honey-
nun wears flowers In his hultonhole,"
he    whispered    lo    inc.    while    Gerly
bOUghl Ibe tickets.      "Hy JoVOl    I came
near wearing a frock coat, pearl-cul_r-
1 etl trousers, and a silk hat!"
"If you had!" I exclaimed.
"Come on!" said Gerty, leading the
1 way.
We  pressed   through   Ihe  gale,  and
Into the (ruin.
"I   call   your    attention,    lady   nnd
grabbing
table    Is
I fact Hint  those seats nre on the shady
I Bide."
"Gronl system!" muttered George.
"1 Insisted upon ll;  snld I knew Ihe
I president   of     tbe     road   personally.
nnd—"
"Nonsense!" broke In George.
'Haven't I travelled? Tbey did ll
because you were a woman. A womnn can gel anything she wants lu
these days, If she doesn't, what does
she do? Appeals to Congress-gets
lip n delega I Ion—"
"First cull for the dlnlng-cnr!" call-
|ed the porter.
Gerly did not respond,
"Second   cull   for   tho   dlnlng-cnr!"
culled  lite same ebony    gentlemun,    a
little later.
George and I were getting nervous,
lie leaned over to Gerly.
"Excuse me for mentioning It," he
whispered, "hut, my dear girl, everything will be eaten up. Hadn't we
better stand up in the aisle? You
know they never reserve anything—it's
against the rules of the company.   I—"
At this moment the parlor-car conductor leaned over and murmured
something ln Gerty's ear. He was a
handsome young mun; ho knew beauty
wben he saw il.
"Come on!" snld Gerty,
me liy the - bund. "Our
ready."
It wus.
"H's easy enough," said Gerty, when
she bad given tbe order. "You nee. I
have a way of getting things done.
What's a company's  rule, anyway?"
"Nothing!" replied George, "Not
wilh your face ami figure 1"
wh.-n we reached ihe bit; station at
Washington, f( seemed .is if a mite of
people    w«'|e   alieinl   of    U.i.   all    malting
a beeiim* tor iim   cab-stand.   Qorty
Bang as she went along,
•■isn't   it    lovdly?"   .ih«'   oxclalmod,
'Ami   BUCh   a   lark!       My!      Hul   when
you  Icnve | ie. responsibility ceases."
"I hopo," growled George, "the responsibility of gottlng a cab i>> take
us io the hotel is .iim weighing on you.
Don'l   you  see  lhat   we  arrived  al   Ihe
same moment wllh a  whole   fined leal
convention?    Look al 'cm!    We muy
us well take a  car.       Heller lei   ine    "
Hy this time we had reached, amid
great confusion, the narrow circle of
lhe laxlcabs. Gerly made a tallSmanlC
sign lo the man In charge. George
said afterward that she hypnotized
him. Tho functionary made a secret signal in return. In a moment
we were all silting lu a buzzttlg cab,
while Gerty looked nonchalantly at tbc
receding Capitol.
That night we bad seats in tbe fourth
row, centre, al tbe theatre. After it
was over, we bad lhe best table in the
hotel supper-room—In spite of the
combined moral Influence of the whole
medical profession, which was apparently slaying at the same hotel.
The next morning we visited — but
those nre detnils. Two duys later, as
we lounged on tbe hotel piazza at Old
Point, Gerty said lo me nonchalantly:
"Oo you know, I believe, If I hud
asked for them, 1 could havo taken
away tbe entire contents of George
Washington's home ut Mt. Vernon!"
"When do we return?" 1 naked.
The fact wus, It had been rather
hard on me. After the novelty of the
Ilrst two or three hours bad worn off,
1 found that It was better to flock by
myself, and a long line of soliloquies
had not improved my temper,
and George were both nice about it
Ihey insisted on my being near them,
though they meant exactly tbe opposite.
Gerly held up the steamer tickets.
"Tonight,"  sbe  replied.
The next day, as we (lied solemnly
Into the room where the compact had
been originally made, we all of us
seemed .simultaneously to realize tbat
tbe crisis bad conic 1 was about to
leave them to light it out, but Gerty
sternly   held  me  back.
"Now. .to," she said, "you must be a
witness. Have 1 carried out my con-
trad?"
"You have, dear," replied George.
"Not a bitch anywhere. Never bad a
more perfect trip! And bow about
me? Old I do my part of It? Did
I prove tbnt i am a good travelling-
companion? Did 1 let you do everything?"
"Practically everything —once or
twice   you   got  nervous—"
"Hut 1 didn't—"
"No, dear hoy, you didn't, and I am
satisfied—-moro than satisfied 1"
She went up to blm, and I knew what
would lnrV* happened If I bad not been
there, and felt correspondingly guilty.
But suddenly George drew up.
"You'll never do It again," ho said
firmly,
"What do you mean? Why, of course
1  shall!     Hasn't It  been established?"
"Not much! When you travel with
me again, you travel under my orders.
You don't suppose, tlo you, that I
would marry a girl and be tagging
around behind her all the rest of my
life? Nol much! I've been taught to
obey orders, and I bave obeyed this
time; but never again!"
Gerly looked serious. She clasped
and unclasped her hands.     Then she
to stray; be gets the glad hand in tbe
populous town, or out where the farmers make hay; he's greeted with pleasure on deserts of sand, and deep'In
the aisles of tho woods; wherever be

The Man Who Delivers tbe Goods.
The failures of life sit around and
complain; the gods haven't treated
them white; they've lost their umbrellas wherever there's ruin; und they
haven't their lanterns at night; men
tiro of the failures wbo fill with their
sighs tbe air of their own neighborhoods; there's the man who is greeted
with love-lighted eyes—he's Tbe Man
Wbo Delivers tbe Goods.
One fellow is lazy, nnd watches the
clock, und waits for tne whistle lo
blow; one Iiuh a bummer, with which
he will knock, and one tells the story
of voe; and nne, if requested to travel
a mile, will measure tho perches and
roods; but one does his slum with a
whistle or smile—he's The Mun Who
Delivers the Goods,
One man Is afraid he'll labor too
hard -the world isn't yearning for
such; and one man Is ever alert, on bis
guard, lest be put In a minute tou
much; and one has a grouch or a temper that's bad, and one ly a crcalurc of
moods, so It's hey for the Joyous and
rollicking lad for The one Who Delivers the Goods!
WHEN CHOPIN COMPOSED
The reconl donth of Zlem, tin- noted
i'rem-l; artist, Iii Hans in his ninetieth
year, has produced lhe usual crop ot
aneedoles, many of which, however,
were printed some months ago wheu
his den lh was prematurely report ed.
Chopin's "Funornl March," which was
plaved In ihe church at Motilmnrlro al
Zlom's funeral service, was composed
In Zlem'S studio. One night after supper Zlem and his friends amused themselves by draping themselves In the ned
sheets and performing an Impromptu
spectre ballet. Hut Chopin did nol
join In the laughter and fun. He sat
down ut the piano und soon the strains
of his now well-known dirge reduced
the noisy crowd In silence. The dancers stopped dancing, the laughter was
stilled, ami thus the "Marche Funebre"
wus born.
COLORED   MAN   114  YEARS  OLD
The oldest man In the United States
is an Indian negro of Grand Junction,
Col., known as Cherokee Hill. His nge
Is given as 114. He was born one
year before Washington was appointed Commander In Chief for the apparently Inevitable war with France,
ut tbe beginning of tbe administration
of John Adams. He was eighteen years
old when Waterloo was fought, and a
man of twenty-three when George III.
guve plnce to George IV. He now announces that, having completed a
round century of lubor, he intends to
retire.
Tbe one regret of tbe man Is that he
bns not quite succeeded in laying aside
$ 1.000 fur each yenr of tbe one hundred
Gerly-|\,f ij(a active occupation, for not until
he had reached Ihe mature age of
ninety-nine did be "strike It rich." Tben
be found paying ore and gravel at
Leadville and Cripple Creek and along
tbe Grand River, and In fifteen years
be laid aside -00 pounds of gold, valued al $80,000.
Hill's affluence, albeit rather tardy
In lhe arrival, proves again what persistent and sedulous' industry will accomplish. Let not those who at
seventy-live or eighty think of sellisb
Indulgence and a life of case grow
weary ln well doing. Tbey are young
yet, as compared with BUI. Sir Joseph
Hooker, Die botanist, wbo has just
passed away at ninety-four, was a
Stripling beside this veteran. Lord
Stratbcoiia, at ninety-one, and Sir
Charles Tupper, at ninety, are eight
ami nine years behind the age at which
tho perennially youthful Hill began to
accumulate his fortune. Let them not
be discouraged If life has nol yet
brought them all thnt heart could wish
—there is still twenty years to the retiring age of tbelr fellow plutocrat In
Colorado, aud much may happen In
two decades. Let any loafing ncar-
ceutenarlans take notice and profit by
tbe example of one wbo thinks u century Is not loo lung for a man to keep
at work.
COMPETITION MADE TRUSTS
Competition, while It kept down pro-
llts, kept up production-costs and, by
Its own intensity, eventually compelled
the competitors to become co-operators
—In trusts.
Trusts reduced the costs of produc
Hon und distribution, and retail prices,
but enormously Increased profits—the

CURIOSITIES OF  WILL   MAKING
It is with a feeling of some fear that
a man to-day writes a will without the
advice of a lawyer. Therefore quaint
and picturesque last testaments are becoming* mnre uncommon. Actual wills
are even more interesting and absorbing than tbe wills of fiction.
Paul Kcverc cut off bis grandson
Trunk, "who now writes his name
Francis," it ith one dollar.
It Is let*-**- than a year since Boston
was startled by a posthumous joke of
a Miss Cora Johnson, who left a will
disposing of some $100,000 while her
ucttiul estate was less than 1100.
Perhaps a more subtle bit of humor
was the provision In the will of a
Scotch dissenting minister who bequeathed a sum of money to bis chapel
at St. Ives to provide "six Bibles every
year, for wblcb six men and six women are to throw dice un Whit Tuesday after the morning service,- the
minister kneeling the while at tbe
south end of the communion table and
praying God to direct the luck to his
glory."
A curious custom, carrying out an
old bequest. Is followed every Good
Friday In the churchyard of Sl. Bar-
tholomew lhe Great, Smtthneld, London, England. After divine service one
of the clergymen drops twenty-one sixpences on a tombstone to be picked
up by as many poor peoplo, widows
having the preference. The will providing for this is losl and tbe distribution is now made out of the parish
funds. The bequest dates back several
hundreds of years.
Here Is a pretty bit of sentiment
from the will of James Gregory: "Having had my sympathies often aroused
hy reason of the extra burden and care
entailed on loving mothers, poor in the
things of earth, who have brought
twins Into Ihe world, us an expression
of that sympathy I leave In trust to
my beloved town $1,000 wllh the provision that lhe Interest be divided January first between ull twins born In
Murhlehend during Ibe previous yenr.
in case no twins are horn during a
given year the Interest shall be added
to the principal."
John Sherman, tbc author of the
nntl-trust law, directed that within
iwo years of his death bis books and
papers were tn be placed in thc hands
of some competent person who should
"preface and publish an Impartial biography of me with selections of my
Speeches and writings." Ten thousand
dollars wns set aside for that purpose
and the testator explains that this Is
done "not to securo a eulogy, for I
nm conscious of many faults, but I
claim lhat In my duly to (he public
I have been honest, faithful and true."
Lord Beacon, In I ■<■ _r». bequeathed his
soul and body to God, while his name
and memory he lefl to men's charitable
speeches and to foreign nations and
next ages.
Philip V., Karl of Pembroke nnd
Montgomery, begins bis will:
Imprlmlr: As for the soul, ] do confess I have often heard men speak of
the soul, bul what mny be these same
souls, or what tbelr destination, God
knowethj for myself 1 know not. Men
have likewise talked lo me of another
World, which I have never vlsiled, nor
do I even know au Inch of the ground
lhal leadeib therein. When the king
was reigning, I did make my son wear
a surplice, being desirous thnl he
should become a bishop, and for myself i did follow the religion of my
master J then came ilu* Scotch, who
made me a Presbyterian; hut since lhe
time of Cromwell 1 have become an Independent. Those are. meiblnks, tbe
three principal religions of the kingdom; If any one of lhe three can save
a soul, to tbat I claim lo belong: If,
therefore, my executors can Iind my
soul, 1 desire tln-y wil return It lo
blm who gave it to me.
Hem: I give my body, for It Is plain
I cannot keep H; as you sec, the chlr-
urgeoni are tearing It In pieces. Hury
tne, therefore; I have lands nnd churches enough for tbnt. Above ull, put
not my body beneath tbe church porch,
for 1 nm. after nil. a man of birth, and
1 wuuld nut that I should ho Interred
there where Colonel Pride was born.
Item: I will have no monument, for
Uieu 1 must needs bave an epitaph and
verses over my carcase;,during my life
I have bad enough of these.
Item: 1 give nothing to my Lord
Saye, and I do make him this legacy
willingly, because I know thai he will
faithfully distribute It unto the poor.
Item: I bequeath to Thomas May,
whose nose 1 did break at a mascarude,
live shillings. My Intention had been
to give him more; but all who shall
have seen his "History of the Parliament" will consider that even this sum
Is, too large.
Item: 1 glvo to the Lieutcnant-Gcn-
eral Cromwell one of my words, thc
which he must want, seeing that he
hath never kept any of his own.
Mr. Daniel Martinet!, of Calcutta,
made bequests In bis will.
Fifthly—To Mr. George Grey, secretary to the presidency, I bequeath all
my sincerity.
Sixthly—To Mr. Simon Drose, writer
to the secretary's oiliee, all my modesty.
Seventhly—To Mr. Henry lliggcnson,
also of the secretary's olllco, all tbe
thoughts I hope I shall die possessed
of.
Eighthly—To Mr. Thomas Forbes, all
tbe worldly assurance which I bad
when I bad taken a cheerful glass,
though In fact a doleful cup.
The Karl of Stafford, one of thc ardent followers of James 11., by his will
gave a permanent testimonial of bis
unhappy marriage.
To the worst of women, Claude Char-
lott-de Grammont, unfortunately my
wife, guilty as she Is of all crimes, I
leave five-und-forty brass half-pence,
which will buy a pullet for ber supper.
A better gift than her father can make
ber; for I bave known when having
not tbe money, neither had he thc
credit for such a purchase.
Perhaps tbe simplest will of all Is a
short will of seven or el^ht lines by
wblcb Senator tloscoe Conkling left his
whole estate to his wife. The will of
the late Edward H- Hurrlman is hardly
any longer, and bis millions were given
to bis wife, So, too, Mussel Sage's
will Is a model of simplicity and brevity.
FATHER CONFESSOR OF LONDON
Tbe Offices of Sir George Lewis wero
Ibe typical olllces of the old-fashioned
London solicitor. Tbey were sober,
rather dark, lhe furniture was of dark
mahogany und bluek horse-hair, and
tbe whole atmosphere was one of sombre and quiet though Incessant activity,
And yet tbey had a suggestion of the
kind of offlce which figures in thc
books of Charles Dickens, nnd no drn
matlst or novelist could select a better scene for a story of such mysteries as London, like all cities, covers
under Its smooth surface. For tho
offices were In Ely Place—a cul de sac
of intense tranquillity, and yet within
a few feet of the ronr und bustle of
the Holborn Viaduct, nn oasis of sll
ence In the midst of London's terrific
ronr. One might steal Into this sombre office In this hldden-away nnd antique corner of London as furtively
and as unseen as Into those little lanes
which arc thc rond to the hack entrance to the pawn-olllee. And on the
stair you might come ncross Cardinal
Maiinim:, the ascetic archbishop; thi
American millionairess troubled with
an English husband; or some pee
whom lhe sins of his youth were Hnd
Ing out. Sir George Lewis led the
life nf the Londoner whose name Is In
every mouth. lie went to flrst
nights al Uu* theatre; ho was at all

his habits, drank only a couple of
Klasses of claret nnd a glBJI of port,

ns In his office, was lhe same quiet,
Imperturbable man. He had a beautiful bouse In tbe splendid spaciousness
of Portland Place—one of London's
finest slreels but be was happiest

luxuriated In the silence of green grass.

HOW AIR   IS  MADE   DANCER0U3
Pure air, the free air nt the 'ip*'U
country, consists of 21 parti   J   tygsxt,
78 parts of nitrogen, and '»n** part >f
nrgon, helium, xenon, an.l a tw li
carbonic add. Air is not a ehe .
combination, but a perfect m.x" ire.
Samples of air from all parti of Oti
world show essentially thi**- HUBS proportion of Ingredients, Ammonia, nitrous acid, dust, salts, pollen from flowers, etc.. are often met with, hut they
do not affect the proportions of these
gases in free air. These proportions
are the only healthful ones. L*?t t.h.e
air be confined, and the proportions
change speedily.
The oxygen ln the air and th*1 <*.ir-
bon In the tissues unite, thus burning
up physical waste and keeping th**
body warm. The skin also Rives off
carbonic, from 11 to _i pounds of water being evaporated dally from the
surface nf the body. The warmer It
becomes lhe more abundant are th*
secretions of tin* skin, so thnt the hiirh-
er tbe temperature the greater will be
tbe Vitiation of confined air In an occupied room. On the oarbonlc add
(.as thus generated plant! live. But
Indoors there arc no plants to take up
this kiis, and so the air becomes laden
wllh It. Thus lhe composition of the
air Is altered ami It ber,inns harmful.
Furthermore) the water expired by
the lungs contains, among other solids,
ammonia salts, which render the condensed water a kind of bouillon In
Which micro-organism! can be developed. If ii person stays In a confined
atmosphere long enough to produce
condensation, a stream tif small drops
charged with Impurities will be deposited on the walls, furniture, and

drawn up in two lines and received
their guests with presented staves.
Mayor Waddington addressed and
welcomed them to the City in an
cloquont and hearty speech. The
Boys partook of a SUmptUOllS repast
at the Parish hall provided and
waited upon, by the ladies. The
Seymour's nnd the Chilliwaek boys
camped out for three days nt the
fair grounds and cooked, drilled,
played football, practised scout
craft until Monday April 8 when
the camp was broken up and at
(i o'clock amidst thc cheers and
yells of the excited youngsters, tbe
visitors went away bearing the most
friendly feelings of our own  boys.
Thc heartiest thanks are due to

The series of afternoon meetings
held under thc auspices of the P.
S. A. for men were brought to a
close on Sunday by an Easter Festival in the oporn house. Like its
pro-dcoosson nl Christmas and Military day it was very largely attended.
The hall was crowded and much
interest wns manifested in the
service. The program of suitable Faster hymns, and vocal
selections was very much enjoyed.
A feature of the service was a ten
minute address of 1'rqf. Ilcthciing-
ton. Principal of Columbian College,
on leadership among men, and character. The address was a gem and
