The debut of two Vancouver girls
into Britisli Columbia's world of
music and song took place last night
at the Vancouver Opera House, and
was the occasion of a social and
artist triumph for both. The enthusiast,- and well filled house
accorded them a welcome that was
only equalled by the measure of
applause after each number on the
programme. The lloral tributes
covered the stage. To reiterate
and re-echo with added enthusiasm
the praise which Miss McCraney
has already received from the musical critics of both Paris and London
would be tlic simplest method of
describing hor arts The number
with whicli she opened the programme, in duct with Mr. Tripp,
was Tartiui's sonntu, in four movements. Miss MeCrnncy's attack,
mastery of bowing nnd breadth ol
interpretation were worthy of tlio
unstinted praise. That sueh, u
young artist should have tlie assurance uml   maturity  whloli  she
displayed seems almost incredible.
Throughout a long and trying programme Miss McCraney scored a
succession of triumphs, nnd her
home people were moved to proud
self congratulation tlmt this brilliant young women began ber career
in Vancouver, antl after conquering
the musical capitals of the old world,
has returned, a modest unassuming girl. lt was a memorable
night Ior Miss McCraney and musical Vancouver.—Vancouver  World.

wus a big bine-eyed fellow, full of fun
nml fight, with a f;ood natured contempt «'f the Dagoes, and was a born
leader. I nol bed, lho first day, that
ho came nearer lieing the boss of the
gang than the foreman, nnd 1 suspect
tho latter himself noticed it, for ho
seemed to have it In for Pun. There
nev.-r wus an especially dirty job to
be d.me but what Dan was sent. He
always obeyed but ho used to slouch
off With his big red list doubled up,
muttering curses that brought out his
brogue at its best. Later on he con-
ll.i.-d in iih- whut he was going to do
to   Hint   boss.    IV   lie   bad   curried   out
his threats he would long since have
been electrocuted and 1 would have
lost a good friend. Several times 1
thought the two men were coming to
blows but though Dan would have |
dearly loved a fight and could have
bandied a dozen men like tlie foreman,
lu- always managed lo control himself
In time to avoid It.
-1 don't wanter b,- utter losin' me

Wasn'l looking for Inter in the week..
It was Friday and half a dozen of us
had been sent down lo work on lhe
second level. It was damp and suffocating down there, fifty feet below,
the street. 1 felt as though 1 had
gone into tin* mines. 1 didn't like ll
but 1 knew thai there was Just as
much to learn here as above and that
it must all be learned eventually. The
sides woro braced wilh heavy timbers
like a mine shaft lo prevent the dirt
from falling In and there was the con-
Btant danger that in spite of this it
might cave in. We went down by |
rough ladders made by nulling strips
Of board across two pieces of Joist
and the work down there was back-
breaking and monotonous. We heaved
the dirt into a bin Iron bucket lowered
by the hoisting engine above, ll was
heavy, wet si.il ib.it weighed like lead. ■
From tb" beginning the men com- (

I Raw Dan double up his lists and

ohecked him with a command.
"Oo buck down there or you'ro fired."
he said to him,
l»an turned red. Then I saw his
jaws cine together.
"HeirodV ho answered. "You shan't
tire me, anyhow."
Without another word ho started
down the ladder again. I snw the
Italians crowd together to watch him

I   weui   down,   down,   down   to   what
seemed  like  ihe  cent) t the enrlh.
Wben Hie bucket struck lhe ground I
was dizzy again but I managed to get

une oi' ihe hardest day's work I,
ever did in my HIV was killing time
from thon until live o'clock, of course,
lhe papers got hold of it and lhal gave
me another scare but luckily lhe nearest tbey cume lo my name was Darlington, so no harm was done. And
they didn't como within n mile of getting the real story. When in a later
edition one of them published my
photograph I fell absolutely safe for
tbey had me in a full beard and thinner than I've ever heen in my life.
When I came home at my usual time,
looking a bit white perhaps but otherwise normal enough, the lirsl question
Uuth asked tne wns:
"Whut have you done wilh your
dinner pail, Billy?"
Isn't a man always sure to do some
such foul tiling as that, when he's trying to keep something quiet from bis
wire'.' 1 had to explain that I had forgotten it and lhat was enough to excite suspicion at any lime. She kept
mo un/joay for ten minutes and tlu*
best I could do was to admit finally
thnt I wasn't feeling very well. Whereupon she made me go lo bed and fussed over me all the evening and worried all the next dny.
I reported for work as usual in the
morning nnd found we had a new
foreman. II was a relief because 1
guess if Dan hadn't knocked down the

So at the .-nt\ ui the tirst Week 1

CHAPTER vm
Sunday
That ilrst dollar saved was the . -rni
of a new Idea.
It is a further confession of <i middle-class mind that in coming down
hot- l hail not looked forward beyond
the Immediate present. Wllh tho horror of that last week still on mo I
had considered only the opportunity
I had for earning a livelihood To ne
sun* 1 had seen no reason why on Intelligent man should not In tlmo be
advanced to foreman, and why he
should not then tie able to save enough
to ward off ihe pnorhouso beforo old
age camo on. Hut now with lhe tlrst
dollar lucked away in tho ginger Jar -
I felt within me the stirring of n now
ambition, ami ambition born nf this
quick young country Into which I hud
plunged.   Why, lu time, should 1 not
become the employer? Why should 1
not take the Initiative ln some of those
progressive enterprises.   Why should

Hut I'm running ahead of m\ story,
I thoughl I had appreciated Sunday
When It meant a release for on.- day
from iin- ofTICO of the United Woollen,
but m* with all the other thin::*; I frit
III  thOUgh  It   had  been  but   the shadow
iii*l ibat only now had I found the
substance, In the first place I had
md been able completely to shake the
office In the last few years. I brought
It   home wllh tne and on Sundays  It
furnished half the stlbjeel of ronversa-
Uon. Kvery llttlo Incident, every expression on Morse's faeo was analyzed In the attempt to see what It
courted,  for nr I'galnst,  lhe  possible
future raise,   Bvon whon out walking
wllh the hoy tho latter was a constant
reminder. It was ns though ho wore
merely a ward of the United Woollttl*)
Company.
Hut whon I put awny my shovel nl
five o'clock on Saturday that wns the
end of my ditch digging. I came
home after Ihnt nnd I was at home
until 1 reported for work on Monday
morning.   There was neither work nor
worry left hanging over. It meant
coinpl-ate relaxation—complete rest.
And ilie body, 1 found, rests better
iiiui the mind.
Later iu my work I didn't exper-
leneo IhlB so perfectly as 1 now did
because then 1 accepted new responsibilities, bul  for the  Ilrst  few months
I jived hi lazy content on this one
day. Vnv the must part those who
lived around mc did all the time. Un
fnir summer days half the population
of ilu- little BquarG basked in lho sun
with eyes hull' closed from morning
until night. Those who didn't, wont
in iln- neighboring beaches many of
which tliey could reach for a nickel or
visited sueh public buildings as were
open. Hut wherever they went or
whatever they did, they loafed about
ii. And a man can't truly loaf until
he's done a hard week's work which
ends with the week.
As for us we luul our choice of any
number of pleasant occupations. I
insisted lhat Ruth should mako the
meals as simple us possible on that
duy and both lho hoy and myselt
helped her about them. We til ways
Wushed the dishes and swepl the floor.
First of all there was the tool". i

neglected spot. If was Hat aud hail

In used for the bunging out of clothes,
Being a new building, it had been built
a siory higher than Its older neighbors
so lhal we overlooked the other roofs.
Thero was a generous space through
whicli we saw the harbor. 1 picked
tip  a   strip   of  old   canvas   for   a   trill"
iu one of fhoishore-fronl junk-shops
which dealt ln second-hand ship supplies and arranged il over ono corner
lilie a canopy, Then I brought home
wiili me some blis of board lhat were
left over from tin? wood construction
al lhe ditch uud nulled these together
lo make a yin\u sort of window  box.
II wns harder lo gel dirt tlmn it wns
wood bul Utile by Utile 1 brought home
enough finally to Illl lho boxes. In
those we planted radishes and lottuco
and a few flower seeds. Wo had almost ns good a garden ns we used to
havo In our back yard. Al any rate,
it was Just as much fun to watch Hie
things grow, and though the lettuce
novon amounted to much we actually
raised some very good radishes. The
flowers did well, too.

WILD DOGS OF AFRICA
The wild dog of Bast Africa stands
■jr, to _" indies high, with good galloping quarters, rather long but vory
muscular legs, with strong feet and
toes; the ears aro very large und erect,
beautifully formed to catch the faintest
sound When working in thick coverts.
Added to this he 1ms a very keen sense
of smell.
The jaws are wonderfully strong,
with beautiful while teeth; they can
break hones which few animals except
lhe hyena could crack, und thi
strength of the kilter's jaws and teeth
are proverbial.
Their mode of hunting is Very clever
Having found and started a buck, som<
of   the   fleetest   dogs  gallop  forward
ahead of the main puck keeping oi:
either side to prevent tin* buck turning aud doubling.back. As these dogs
lire they fall hack, aud others lak
up the running in tlieir place, When
the quarry tires the pack closes in and
all their energy Is devoted to killing
by leurlng oul the viscera.
Some writers say the pack takes the
form of a crescent when running their
prey, gradually closing in as the game
tins. AH agree that tho short lime
taken in running down a buck is simply marvellous, a quarter of an hour
being the estimated time in hunting,
killing ami consuming the buck under
ordinary cireumslunces.
The wild dog Is not at all fastidious
as to what food he shall take, but h
b-vl.-s loll uii any sort of buck or ante
lope he finds handy. Gnu, sable aud
W/atorbuck are said to lie his favorite food, but he has lieen known to
pull down a buffalo when pressed for
food. Needless to say. when attacking a powerful animal like this some
of the dogs inert wllh a sudden death,
uml these are consumed by the surviving members. They always seem ravenous for food and tin h appetites
nearly insatiable. There duos not
BOem to he any record "f their having
attacked a white man.
The Cape hunting dog Is soim-Him

howovor. Is only superficial, nml tht
fuel that he runs down ami kills hit*
prey In a sporting manner entitles hint
lo a small share of our respect which
n scavenger like the hyena could never
command.
Tacks range from fifteen to forty in
number. The note is bell-like nnd
rather musical, One writer. Sir Andrew Smith, likens It to a 'Ilu-ho-ho-

LONG RANGE REVOLVERS
Tim revolver ts a very deadly wen

Is to empty the chambers of the eylln

WOMAN'S  CREDULITY
Oh, wonderful credulity nf woman,
thai strains ut a gnat and swallows a
camel! (if all her attributes, none is
more inconsistent on tlio surface, more
consist cut when submitted to deeper
and accurate analysis.
Men are just as credulous as womon,
but il Is in a different field. The remarkable thing about it all Is lhat each
sex is most ercduluus In that sphere
which is supposed to lie peculiarly its
own. Men aro more credulous iu business, women in .sentiment.
Tell a woman you love her and think
her the most beautiful and wonderful
creature in the world, and with childlike simplicity she believes you Im-
pllclty, Then she hands over lier hank-
book and real-estate deeds. A woman
can tell a man all day thai she is consumed liy a devouring passion for him,
bul only iu Isolated cases lias tlie man
rushed to tlie proper authorities to put
his property in her name.
On the other hand, perpetual-motion
machines, cold motors, gold from sea-
bubbles, and green-gOOdS schemes of
all kinds are liberally supported by a
largo masculine following.   A thousand
eases of silecessful swindling In which
|OVO   lias   md   been   a   faeb.r,   CIlOBOn   at
random from tho police records, show
a percentage of aboul  fivo  in  which
women   have   been   (lie   vkllms.
A woman longs to Ihlnk (but someone   In ves   ber   and   eolisldeis    her   dn
slrabio, a man dreams of sudden
wealth with Utile effort,
Porhnpa another reason for the die
feronl points of vulnerability in the
sexes is Uml Imagination Is absolutely
necessary to credulity. A womnn does
not possess Hm amount of Imagination
In regard lo business that a mnn does.
As n rule, u womnn has lo deal wllh
such small sums of money, and there
am such strings on thut, lhat she Is
not apt (o Indulge lu riotous dreams
about ll. Slit; Is naluraIly slow In
speculating wllh n or risking it even
for Ihe hope of doubling it muny times.
Winn u womnn is victimized she usually risks her money not for tho purpose of gain, but to show her comploto
confidence and trust In the person she
loves.
The raison d'etre of credulity Is that
ii increases activity. Someone concocts ii scheme to appeal to another
hum's credulity; Hie possessor of that
quality enters into it: various transactions are carried forth, affording considerable revenue and work to numerous parties, after which a reconstructive process sets In. occasionally with
ilie aid of the law.
Thus there lias been quite a salutary
llttlo flurry iu tho business world.
Without credulity there would hnve
been only stagnation.
In woman's world without credulity
ihe same state would ensue. There
would he no marriages, Romance
would go out of existence. If women
weren't willing to take men on faith
they  wouldn't   take  them   nt   all.
In fact, woman's credulity plays lis
most active part wlien she is about
lo make the most Important contract
of her whole life. Comparatively few
men are victimized through marriage
Even a smaller number are inveigled
into  bigamous   marriages.
Of course, there ure other reasons
Why men are moro successful as blga
mists than women. A man can estab
lish himself In a community and build
up n circle of acquaintances much more
quickly than a woman. Also, for economic reasons, a man is warier about
entering the matrimonial state.
Man's method of attack is so much
more direct and speedy when he so
desires than any lure even Hie most
seductive adventuress can display, that
la* can court and marry ton women
iu the time that tt takes a woman to
cajole a solitary man.
A man can make the proposition
direct and persuade a woman to acquiesce with his plans. A woman labors under the disadvantage of having
to  work  elretiitously.
Still, there Is something amazing in
the career of several of the blgumists
whose records of fifty or seventy
wives eaeli havo startled the public
within Ihe last ten years. In no case
wore tho criminals men of good looks,
fascinating manners, or an inviting
taste in dress.
They jumped from city to city with
onl credentials, using the lllmslost of
misrepresentations, yet ihey invariably
passed muster.
Why a woman wiih money enough
to he Independent—theso mon neve
trifle with dependent ones-will rush
into matrimony with an utter stranger
ami entrust him wllh her money is
something qui to beyond the compro-
briislon of the ordinary man. Vet In
the case of Johaun I loch, the famous
bigamist   and   murderer,   he   proposed
marriage and was accepted the day
after one wife died ami the prospective bride was tin- sister of lhe dead
woman.
nm- case that Illustrates the remarkable gullibility of women In this respect ih oxompllfled by the success of

Ono of the amusing features ot

POTASH FROM SEA KELP
The Uiiileil Stales possesses tlie larg
it phosphate Holds in the world, and
uut unly supplies all that is required
I'm homo consumption, but also exports
large quantities lo foreign countries.
Ml of ilu- potash, howovor, roqulrod for
nir iVi'tili/crs is imported from <!er
many, the annual im por la tinn boing
aboiit $10,000,000, (Icriiiauv has shown

ttntry may shortly not only he able
lo supply its own needs of potash salts,
lull   even   pOBSlbly    export     lo    foreign
rkeis. A fow difficulties of nn engineering cuaractor nre still to be ovor*
ionic, hut llley nre not of a serious
aat ure. A new industry wilt be ch
tablished, and if the by prinfui-ta arc
wisely used, miuiy millions per annum
should be added to lhe wealth of this
country,
The Department exports have cover
ed a wide range in tlieir investigation.
Some of Ihe desert, basins were examined; brines ami the mother liquors
from salt wells were tested, and experiments have been carried oa with the
object of extracting potash from silicate rocks, and minerals, sueh as alun-
ite, which contain it. The work is still
under way, nnd potash in limited
amounts undoubtedly will he derived
from some of these sources. I'p to tho
present, none of them give promise of ■
satisfying the country's needs.
Itut in the giant Kelps of the Pacific
Coast a satisfactory source of potash
has been found. The kelp groves along
less than one-fourth of the coast lino
have been mapped, and yet these should
yield from two to three times as much
potash ns the present importations.
These sea weeds are aide to extract, by
selective, absorption, the potash salts
from the sea water, and, on drying,
these salts are very I: rgcly exuded ou
the surface. Tho dried plants contain
from 25 to Ita per cent, of their weight
of potassium chloride, arid the latter
can very readily be extracted. The
kelps also contain iodine, and many
other by-products can be obtained from
them. It is possible that these by-pro-
duels will more than pay the manufacturing expenses, leaving tho potassium
chloride free from cost.    Tlie Japanose
have already shown considerable ingenuity in working up these by-products. Not only do they use some of
the waste material for cattle food, but
thc Japanese themselves uso it na a
staple article of diet. Glue, shellac,
paper and uther useful products can
also lie made.
Some of tlie Pacific groves nro five
miles long and two miles wide, and the
growth in these groves is exceedingly
dense. Tho two principal species that
would be available are Nereocystis luot
keana. in tho north, and Maeroeystis
pyrifern, in the south. Roth theso
plniits reach a length of 100 foot or
moro, and Rrow in strong tideways or
where they are exposed to iho full
force of tho open sea. All of the
groves nro within thc three -mile limit,
and should be easily harvested. The
heaviest groves nro south of Point Sur,
but largo ones extend as fnr north ns
Seattle. If properly harvested and protected, these groves will yield an annual harvest indefinitely; it is even
possible that, in the case of Mncrory-
stis two such hnrvests may he obtained.
On a conservative bnsis. upwards of a
million tons of potassium chloride,
worth nearly HO.UOO.nOO, should bo obtained each year. No estimate can he
given nt the present time of the value
of the by products. '

N_ of tho funniest stories from
thc land of tlio liords is an ancient tale whose purpose is to illustrate the montul levity of women.
This tale relates that there was a certain man named Jacob, whose wife,
Alida, was blessed with a plentiful
lack of v-dts. They had some marketing to do, and, as Jacob was busy, Adda said she would go. So Jacob told
her: "Mind woll, good Wife, you are to
sell the cow and the hen; the cow for
lifty crowns, and the hen for lifty
ponce; and, mind you, not a penny
loss!"
So Alida wont along the road to
market, carrying the hen and driving
lho cow; aud, as sho went, she kept
saying to herself, "Tho cow and tho
hen, the cow and the hen; flfly crowns
and lifty pence; the cow and the hen!"
Ami presently, from Baying it tou often, she gol confused, and said: "Fifty
pence uml fifty crowns for tho cow
and tho hen!" And then sho bogan
io say, "Fifty ponce for tho cow, and
lifty crowns for the hen!"
Tho butcher was going along the
roud, and In* hoard her, aud said he
would lake Ilu* cow al her price, and
80 lie i:avc her the fifty pence and look
Hu- cow, ami the goodwlfo Weill on to
market wilh the hen. Hut when she
camo lo tho mnrkol, nobody would
r.lve her fifty crowns fin* the ben, so
she was sorrowful. And at lasl sho
weni io the butcher and told him, us
he had taken the cow, Im should Ink
Hm hen too. So he said ho would 800
about lt, aud asked her to come In
and put food of lho best before her
and gave her strong waters to drink,
so lhat presently tho goodWlfe was
snoring. Then he daubed her wllh tar,
and rolled her In feathers, and set hor
oul mi the roadside. Wheu sho awoke
It was In tho chill of lho morning,
and sho rubbed her eyes aud looked
for the fifty crowns she was to got for
tho cow and tho fifty pence she was
to get for the hen; but sho could find
none of it, but only the feathers all
over her, where the butcher had daubed her.
Well, the goodwlfo was perplexed.
"Am I me," she said, "or nm I not
me? And if I'm not me, then who can
I be?" So she thought perhaps she
was a big bird, and not herself ot all.
"Well," she said, "I'll go home, nnd
if the dog licks my hand, then I am
me; but If ho barks at mo, then I am
a bird, and not mo at all!"
So she went home, and indeed the
dog began to bark and to howl; so she
knew she was a bird and not herself I
at all; so she must go up ou the roof
and try to (ly. The goodman saw her,
and indeed he, too, thought she was
a bird, and got his sun, and would
have shot at her, but she cried out:
only rubbed hla head und blinked his
eyes.
"That makes two!" said Jacob, and
went on hia wuy. And presently ho
came to a house and went In, and the
old woman wus deaf, so that she could
nol well heur what he said.
"Where ure you  from?" asked sho.
"I nm from Elverum," said he.
"From heaven?" said she, not rightly hearing him; "then you may huve
met my husband I'eter; thc second, 1
mean, for I have heen married three
times, and each of my men hus been
called Peter to hla name. The first
beat me, so he doesn't count; tho third
Is still alive, so he doesn't count; ao 1
am asking about the second, who was
a good man, ami surely went up."
Jacob thought awhile, ami laughed
In his sleeve, for all that ho was disheartened to Uud a woman so foolish.
Yes, ho said, he came from heaven;
but ho could not rightly say whether
the I'eter he knew Ihore was her husband nr no. Hul ho was hooii golnfl
back again, uud ho would Iind oul.
The man he knew in heaven was a
good man, bul poor, wllh never a
Blllch to his buck, nor a silver crown
in his pouch, but a good man, and a
kindly Withal, Then llm old woman
bogan a -weeping aud a-wall ing, and
snld lhat was tho living description of
her own losl I'eter, md counting the
Ilrst one, who was bad, and had gone
elsewhere; and would ho kindly lake
hot* I'eter something whon ho went
back.
Ves, he would. And so tho old woman weut up to the garret, and gathered good clothes thai her I'eter had left,
and a box of silver for him, and gave
thom to Jacob, wllh a enrt to carry
them, and a horse to draw the curt.
So ho went away again toward his
home. "That makes threo!" ho said,
as he laughed in his sleeve, evon
though he was disheartened at the
foolishness of women.
Then the third husband, he lhat wns
still living, and was also Peter, saw
a man driving his cart awny, and ran
into the house, und asked tho old wife
what it was. So she told him, und
that he was taking the things back to
heaven for her second man. Then the
third I'eter was wroth, and took horse
aud pursued. Dut Jacob, hearing hhn,
turned Into ihe wood, und hid the horse"
and cart. And he plucked a wisp of
hair from the horse's tall, and stuck
it in a birch-tree on a hillock In the
wood.
No sooner was this done than the
third i'eter was after him, and he
found Jacob lying flat on his back and
gazing up into the sky.
"There it goes," says Jacob, "the

"Oh, goodman 1 don't
if I'm somebody else!" So he came up
on the roof, and sho told him all lhat
had happened. Then tho goodman
spat and swore, so disheartened wus
he, and he said ho would take all,
Whatever money he had in lhe house,
and go forth, and never return until he
had found three women who were as
big fools as his wife. Then ho would
return,
So ho took what he eould take and
went. And as he went along the road,
nd behold, thore was a new houso
built by lhe roadside, and a woman
running lu and out of it. She had a
sieve In her hand, aud she would conn;
out, and then whip her apron over the
aud then run back again into the
house. So Jacob watched her, nnd
then he asked her what she was doing.
"I am trying," she said, "to catch
somo sunshine to take Into my houso;
for my house is dark for lack of sunshine, In my old hut there was plenty,
but In my new house, for all it Is (lno
ami beautiful, there Is no sunshine. And
indeed I would glvo a hundred crowns
to the man that would bring me in
some sunshine!"
Then Jacob looked at her ami raised
hla eyebrows. Then ho thought and
said to the woman:
"Goodwlfe, If you givo me nn axe
I'll bring you some sunshine!" So sho
got him an axe, and lie out windows In
her house, till the sun streamed in, for
iho builder had forgotten them. And
the good woman was joyful anil clapped her hands and gave him a kiss,!
which he liked, and thc hundred
crowns, which he liked still moro.
"There's ono!" ho cried, and went on
along the road. And it was not long

Ihe stream, and there was a man there
with his head covered, and sho wns
beating him over the head and he was
yelling und crying oul thai sho wns
murdering him.
So Jacob went  up and slopped  her.
"What  are you doing".'" said he.
"Trying to gel my goodtnan's shirt
on!" said sho. "I've sewn him a new
shirt, but he can't get his head through
ll, and so I'm trying to drive it through
with a club!" Ami Jacob looked, ami
suro enough lhe good wife had forgot-
len to put nny neck In the shirt, so
her goodman could not get his head
Ibrough. And hoih of them were crying*, sho for despite, and ho for tho
boating she had given him, trying to
put on the shirt.
"I would give a hundred crowns,"
cried thfl goodwlfo. "If anyone would
show mo how to put on the shirt!"
So Jacob .-'aid ho would do It. nnd
ho took the shears and cut n sill In lhe
shirt for tho neck, nnd so It went on
enslly enough. And Iho goodwlfo
laughed and rejoiced, and gavo htm
the hundred crowns.    Hut lhe gnodmnn
hoot mc, even ■ clouds to the door of heaven!" and
with thut he showed the horse-hair
on the birch, where the cart and horse
bad passed, on their way upward. Aud
I'eter the third was much astounded,
and he, too, would see. So Jacob bade
him also lie on his back, and look up
steadily, till his eyes got used to it,
and he would see the horse and earl
In lhe clouds.
So there ho lay, and Jacob was ott
with the cart and the horse, und he
took, too, the horse that Peter had
come on, galloping after him. And
when he came homo he was well content, for had he not tho two horses
and the cart and two hundred crowns
and tho clothes for I'eter that wns In
heaven? And as he came to tho house
he saw the Held was plowed; so he
asked his wife AHdn what that meant.
"I have always heard," said she,
"that what you sow you reap, with
good measure added. So I havo had
the Held plowed, antl have sown salt
In It, and if only we have rain enough
I expect to reap many a bushel!"
Then Jacob was angry and disheartened  nt  her foolishness.
"Butt" said he, "there Is no help for
It, since all womankind are even such
as you!"
Here is another tale about nn animal
wiih no tall, to wit. Brother Rabbit;
u tale which might well have come
from Georgia and Uncle Item us, but
which has come, in fact, from the land
of the Vikings.
Onco upon a time, says thc tale,
thore was a Rabbit who was frisking
up and down under the greenwood-
tree. "Hooray! Ilooray!" he cried,
"Hip, hip, hooray!" and he leaped and
sprang, and then threw a somersauH.
and stood on Ids hind-legs.   Just theu
Brother Fox camo slipping by.
"Clood day! goml day! Brother l*'ox!"
cried the Rabbit; "I am so merry, for
you must know lhat I was married this
morning!"
"Lucky fellow, you!" said Brother
Pox.
"Not so lucky afler all!" said the
llabblt, "for she was to,, ready wllh
her fists; a regular old witch I gol lo
Wife!"
"Unlucky  yon are!"  snid tin*  Fox,
"Oh, not so unlucky either I" said the
Rabbit, uml he danced ngaln; "for sho
was au heiress; she had a house of her
r, wllh which he proceeds to make
fortune, Uno of ibe best of these
ns   of   llie    Youngest    Son    relales
t ihe two Elder Brothers had gone,
as always, lo the king's court to make
their fortunes, The king set them
each in turn■ to. .hjsrd his hares, wllh
the condition that, if none of the'hares
WOSO lost, the princess would bealow
her hand on the lucky h-rdsman; but
if even one were missing in lho evening, lhe culprit should have a slice cut
from his back, aud salt rubbed in till
he howled.
As wus to be expected, the two Elder Urolhers camo to grief, and the
king, with many expressions of regret,
carved them according to agreement.
Then came the Youngest Son who, as
expected, had met tho fairy god-
mother, well disguised as a witch, und
had received from her. In return for
kindness, a fairy pipe, which had thc
virtue that If you blew into ouo end
things would scalier and My, but if
you blew Into tlio other they would
run together again aa quick as quicksilver. So tho haros woro magically
horded, and (he king, lugubriously
whetting his knife ouch day, wuh
doomed each evening lo disappointment. Then lhe whole court Intrigued,
and the king sent Ihe princess to spy
on blm, and. when sho had discover
Ibe secret of the magic pipe, tho king
bade her purchase It at any cost. So
she gave many crowns and mote kisses
for the pipe, and set off home wllh il;
bul 11 had this virtue, that if Hie lawful owner losl 11 .he had only lo wish
II back again and it would come. So
lhe princess discovered lha! tho pipe
was gone, and tho hares were well
herded onco more, Nexl the qu<
Irleil, giving many kisses and crowns;
and then lhe king, giving his own
white steed, hut all to no purpose. Thc
pipe went hack to tho Youngest Son.
At Ihls the king was spiteful ami
wroth, and saitl the Youngest Son was
a wizard, and must lose his life unless
he could Ilo the great brewing-vat full
of lies, ao that It rnn over. Then he
might keep his life.
That was neither a long nor a perilous piece of work. The Youngest Son
could do that. So he began to tell tho
whole tale just us It had happened,
and how the old witch gave him the
pipe. And thon he went on to aay,
"Well, but I must lio faster, if the vat
Is to be full." So he went on, and told
how the princess came, and gave him
many dollars for the pipe, und muny
kisses, away there in the wood. Then
he stopped anil said, "I must He faster,
if ever thc vat is to be full." So he
told of the queen, and how she had
tried to get the pipe, und of tho money
she had given him, and the kisses too.
And tho queen got while and the king
got red when he heard It, but the
Youngest Son said, "I must lie hard to
get lhe vat full."
Hut the queen said, "For my part,
1 think it's pretty full already."
"No! no! it isn't," cried the king.
So the Youngest Son went on and
told how the king had come after the
pipe in his turn, and wns going to lell
ubout all the tricks the king had tried
on htm to get tho pipe: "If the vat is
to be full I must lie hard!" ho said.
But the king got redder and redder,
because he was ashamed of thc tricks
he had tried on him to get the pipe,
and afraid that the court would mock
him, so the king cried out: "Hold!
hold! The vat is full to the brim!
Don't you see bow the lies are pouring
over?"
So lhe Youngest Son got the princess
for his wife, and half tho kingdom.
There was no help for it.
"Thut was something of a pipe!"
said the Youngest Son.

Under such conditions we ull like
fruit und should cul It In Die serene
confldonco thut the thing you like In
lhe way of food is the thing you need.
ID satisfying our natural uppeilte
for fruit, if we use such fruits ua are
well matured, Juicy, and fine flavored,
wo reach the highest form of palate,
or taste pleasure with tho best possible
digestive effect.
Our ordinary fruits contain the following substancea or compounds in
greater or less proportions: water,
sugar, acids, oils uml ether, protoids,
poi:toso, cellulose or vegetable fibre, ash
or mineral sulta. These substances nro
all essential constituents of a perfect
and well-rounded out diet for our bod
ies, Whilo tho actual nutrient value of
fruit is not high, its dietetic value ia
very groat.
Tho two qualities whieh most serve
to render fruit wholesome, are their
acid juiciness and flavor. Tho juice
is largely water, hut it contains the
sugar ami acid of the fruit, uml if these
an* present in lurge quantities and in
tiie right proportions, the frail juice
is agreeable and refreshing.
Flavor also aihls to the quality of the
fruit. The flavor uf fruit is'duo in
part to the acids ami sugar lliey contain, bul. mure largely to the volatile!
nils and others. Fruit acids and ethers,;
when taken Into llm body, have a tendency to lower tlu; temperature of the
blond, ami thus correct or allay any
slight feverishiiess lhat may exisl.
Thoy also tend to keep tho organs of
secret ion, like the liver nml kidneys,
normally active.
Tho pectoso and cellulose of fruit cor-
ict a tendency to constipation, mid
signally aid in keeping the whole digestive tract in open und healthy condition.
Again, if children wero given free
access to fruit, there would be less indigestion or bowel trouble, ns tho freo
icitls of fruit are highly antiseptic, nnd
tend to prevent disease germs from
finding a lodgment and developing in
our systems. As to what kinds or how
much fruit we should eat, there is only
this answer: Eat the kind of fruit you
like und enn best nltord, aud cat just
as much as your conscience and good
judgment will allow you.
When to eat fruit is a personal question, and tho following general advice
may be of service: Fruit should bo
eaten when you eat other food. Although fruit, is easily digested, it is not
wise to be constantly and frequently
putting into your stomach food of any
sort, liy this practice the strongest
stomach may he ruined and refuse to
take tho best of food. When fruit is
eaten before breakfast, say un orange
nr apple, it cleanses the stomach and its
cooling and laxative effect is likely to early
he at its maximum. Fruit is an excel- I

STATISTICS OF SMOKE AND SOOT
IN THE AIR
During tho year 1010. measurements
were mnde of the degree to which the
air of thirty cities in Austria and Germany was contaminated wllh smoke
and Boot, Observations were mad*
three times a day, vi;.., nt S a.m., l:
noon, und ti p.m. At each observation
n uniform volume of air wus drawn
rapidly through a paper tutor hy
means of some form of aspirator. According to the amount of smoko and
soot lu the air the paper wns more
or less darkly tinged at the end of
lhe observation. Its color was compared with a stale of six numbered
Shades, copies of which were furnished
to nil lhe collaborators, and the niter
was marked with the number of the
shudo to which lt most ueurly approached, Finally the tillers for a
whole month, at each station, were
collated; their numbers being added
and divided by the total number of observations,   and   the   result   boing   set
down as representing   the smoklness
and sootlnoss of the nir for lhe place
ami period in question. Tho results,
while giving n*> Indication of the absolute amount of smoko and Boot present, furnish a useful means of coin-
paring the purity of ihe air tn the different cities. Th,. contamination of
n..' air by factories, in Hm large Industrial centres, Is made evident, but
thoro Is also a very surprising OffOCt

The efforts of the Knst Chilliwack.
Dramatic Society again met with
success last Friday evening.    This
I time tbey staged it pretty little play
I entitled "Too Manv Husbands."
The large hall was tilled and the
audience gave close attention from
start lo finish. The piny centered
around a young man named Arthur,
wbo wrote to his rich uncle that he
was married, in order to get nn increased allowance. A .year or so
after the uncle visits him unexpectedly, and so as not to disappoint
uncle, Arthur borrows his friend's
wife, just to present Iter. The
undo was pleased with tho young
lady, and decided to stay n few-
days to visit. He soon discovered
the baby and was determined to
have il called "Thaildens" after
himself, as Arthur had told him it
was Ihij- to please him, and then
along comes tho baby's grandmother
i who insists that the baby be
christened Margaret, afler her, and
it is here tbat tilings are brought to
II   elimiiN,       Kxphioatimi-     follow
I thick and fast and soon all difficulties are removed, and the uncle
gives his daughter to Arthur and
lie gets married in iptick style,   as
I ho always lovod hor but she heard

1-ceause of its strengthening influence upon the vocal cords, Catarrh-
ozone cannot be too highly recommended as a wonderful voice Improver. It almost Instantly removes htiskl-
ness or hoarseness, thus Insuring clearness and brilliancy of tone. Catarrh-
ozone keeps the mucous surfaces In
perfect condition, and Its regular use
absolutely prevents colds and throat

animal that does not fulfil these requirements is now hardly regarded as pedigreed, and, whatever its merits, it does
not bring its full value. This tightening up of the fence between the purebred and the nondescript is all for the

Frustrate
(My Mary Austin)
1 know that 1 am a disappointed woman and tbut nobody cares at all aboul
It, not even Henry; and if anybody
thought bf it, IL would only be to think
it ridiculous, ll Is ridiculous, loo, Willi
my wuist, and not knowing how to do
my hair or anything. 1 look at Henry
sometimes uf evenings, when he has
bis feet on the fender, and wonder if
he has the least idea how disappointed
I nm. I even bave days of wondering
If Henry isn't disappointed, too. He
might be disappointed ln himself,
which would bo even more dreadful;
but I don't suppose we shall ever Und
out about eacb other, IL is part of
my disappointment   lhat   Henry   has
never seemed to want lo Iind out.
There aro people who think it Is
something discreditable to be disappointed; and whatever comes, you must
prolond to like It, and Just koop on protending, I don't know why. It mUBl
be timi some tilings are right in life
and some others me not, and unloBB
somebody has tho courage to speak up
ubout ll, I don'l Know bow we are over
to lltid It ..ill. I don'l BOO, If nobody
else   Ih   luul   by   It,   why   wo   lllOUldll'l
have whal we lliu i oi  life; iiini if
llioro's a way of gottlng or nol gotiinu
It, | pie bnve a right in KltOW.    huin,--
Umus I ihlnk if id known ii uuie moro,
just a vory llttlo .   .   .   !
n nil began, I suppose, in Lho kind
of pooplo i was brought up nmong.
They-d none ni' Ihom had lho kind of
things i wanted, so of courso Lhoy
couldn't (cii me anything about the way
to gol iiiem. Thero was my mother.
Sbe Uud to work hard, and bad hOVOr
been nny whoro but lo a Methodist conference and mice to tbe capital whon
father was a dologato or some thing,
and ber black silk had been turned
twice; bul BhO didn't .seem Ihe leasl
disappointed,     l think li must havo
been lhe way things were bei ween belaud my father. Father died when 1
whs sixteen, bo l couldn't tell much
about lt, but I know mothor never so*
mucli as thoughl of marrying again.:
She was like a   person Who has had a
full meal, but 1 i am just kind of
hungry. • ■ always. My mother nev-
or talked to me about her relations to I
my father. Mothers didn't; it wasn't i
thought suitable. 1 think sometimes,
if she had, it might have made u differ- :
ence about my marrying Henry.
The  trouble  was  In  the  beginning.!
that though 1 knew thO world was all j
full  of  exciting,  Interesting  things,   11
j ilfmght tbey came to you just by Uv- i
? ing.   I had no idea there was a pur- i
titular way you  bud to go io work to
get  ihem.   I think my people weren't
the kind to make very nice discrlmina- i
tions  about   experiences  or anything.
They wouldn't have thought one way
of being in love, for Instance, was much
better or different from another.   They
had everything sort of ticketed off and
done  with;   such  as  that  all  churcli-
members were happier than unbelievers, and all men naturally moro competent and  Intelligent than their women.    Tbey must liave known, some of
them, that things didn't always work
out that way;  but they never let on
uboul lt--anyway, not to us young people.   And   if  married  couples  weren't
happy   together,   ll   wasn't   considered
decent to speak of it.
I Suppose thai was what had got mc
to thinking (hat all the deep and high
and shining things that 1 had a kind
of Instinct went with being married
belonged to it naturally, and, when you
had found a suitable man. came along
in their proper place without much
thinking. And that was about nil 1
knew when Henry proposed to me al
the odd Fellows' Festival. We wen
both on the decoration committee, and
drove out to iho old Lawson placo that
afternoon for roses. 1 remember the
feel of them against my cheek, hot and I
sweet, and tho smell of the syrlnga,
and a great gold-and-black butterfly
that fled and  flitted down  tho green
and my mother was u good deal relieved when 1 settled down Lo Henry. And
we hadn't any more Lhan gol Lhe furniture as wo wanted it when I discovered thut there Imdn'L uny tiling
happened al all! Instead of living
Willi my mother, I was just living wim
Henry; l'vo never done any thing else.
There uro things nobody ever tells
young girls about marriage, Sometimes 1 think ll is because, If they knew
how to estimate their experience in llie
beginning, there is such a lot they
wouldn't go un wiih; and when 1 was
married, nobody over thought of anything bul Unit you had to go ou will)
It. There were times when it seemed
as If all It needed wns just going on:
thoro was a dizzying point Just about
io bo reached from which Henry and
1 should really set out Cor somowhoi'0.
ii took me iifieeu yoars to reallso
tliiijl   wi1   luul n'i   sel   oul   lor  uny thing,
ana would never got anywhere in particular,
i Know I trlod,   Times i would explain to Henry wlml i wi il until lio
soomod to waul  li us  di iis I did;
uml Hun we would begin whatever wo
had io do at least i would begin and
11itri i would nnd out that Henry had
forgotten whal we wero doing it ror
IlltO   Ibe   ll    we  Mivid   lo  i.el   oul   the

Henry ibe shares turned oui not to

waving,
The trouble was, Henry said, I was
loo kind of simple. 11 always seemed
to mo, if you wanted tilings, you picked oul iho one nearest to you, and
made a murk so you could keep tab
on whether you were getting it or not;
and thon you picked out tho next nearest, und went fur that, and after u
while you had all of them. Hul Henry
said when it came to business it was a
good deal more complicated, and you
had to look on all sides of a thing.
Henry was strong on looking on ail
sides; anybody that had any kind of
reasonableness could alwnys get over
him, like that man with the water-
shares. That Was when 1 was trying
to make myself believe that if we could
gel a little money together, we might
I be In things, 1 had Ueeu reading the
magazines, and 1 knew that there were
j big, live things with feelers out all over
creation, mid if 1 eould just gel ihe
| least little tip of one. . . . Uut I
i knew ii wasn't money. When 1 wasn't
too sick and over-worked and worn
j out trying to keep track of Henry's
reasons. 1 knew that tlie thing I was
aching for was close beside me . . .
when l heard tho wind walk on tbe roof
at night .... or heard music
playing . . . and 1 would be irritated with Henry because ho couldn't
help me lay hold of ll. ll Is ridiculous,
l know, but there were times when
it seemed to me if Henry had been
fatter, it would have helped Home. I
don't mean to wuy that I had wanted
to marry a fat man, but Henry hadn't
idled out any, not like It seems men
■ 'light to: hs Jusi got dry and.thinner.
It used to make me kind of exasperated. Henry was always patient with
me; he thought it was because I hadn't any children. Ho would have liked
children, So would 1 when 1 thought
I was to have one, bul 1 was doing my
wn housework, and I was never strong.
1 cried about it a good deal ut the
lime; but ! don'l suppose 1 really wanted ll very much or 1 would have adopted one. I will tell you—thero are women that want children just for the
.itke of having them but the most of
ihem want them because there is a
man—- And llie mun tbey want gets
j to hear of it and whenever a woman
I Is any way unhappy, they think all she
iis  Is  a   baby.   Hut  there's  some
country  road, mottled black and gold  tnlng e, ie oUgM to happen first, and
wltb shadows. Things like that govt
me a strange kind of excitement, nnd
yet a kind of lonesomeness. too, so I
didn't mind Henry holding my hand
between us In lhe buggy. 1 thought
he must he feeling something of the
same sort, and It didn't seem friendly
to take my band away.   Hut I did take
never gave up thinking It was going
to happen; all tbe Lime 1 kept looking
oul, like Sister Anne In thc fairy-tale,
mid lt seemed to me a great many
times I saw dust moving. I never understood why we couldn't do things
right here at home—big things. There
were  those  people  I'd  read  about  in

ed to realise that it couldn't happen
now on account of my being married
lo Henry. It was at Kalrshoro that
l found oul.
II   was when we hnd  been  married
eighteen   years  that   Aunt   l.ucy  died

I then   I   Wasn't   particularly   pretty   or
•Icli or anything. I had never been very
rijiopular wltb young men;   I  was  too
■■eager.    Not for tbem, you understand;

Tort of pull back from the thing that
Is expected of them Just because It Is
1 xpectcd. I always thought It rather
l.mull, but I suppose they enn't help
It. There was n woman I mot al Fnlr-
fhore who "explained how Unit was;
■■nt   ]  didn't  know  then,  nnd  1  was
any objection, and the Ilrst thing I did
was lo go down.lo Fnlrshorc for the
summer, I OhOSO Kalrshoro because
I had beard about all thc authors and
painters being thero. Von see, when
you novor have nny rent life except
what you get from reading, you have
n kind of feeling Hint writers aro th*
lather sensitive about it.   Anyway, It  only real own folks you've got.   You
lamo nbout thnt I hadn't many beaux, j even get to thinking sometimes that
maybe, if you hud known Uuw to go
about it, you could have written yourself, though perhaps you'd feel that
wuy about brldgo-bulldlng or soldiering, If It was tho only real kind of work
you saw much of, Not lhat 1 ever
thought 1 could write; but I'd so many
Ideas that were exactly like what I'd
read that 1 thought If I could only Just
get somebody Lo write them for mo—
Uut you can't; they've all got tilings
of their own. still, you would think
the way. they get inside the peoplo
they write ubout that tliey would be
able to see what Is going un lusldo of
you, and be a litlle kind.
You see, It had come over mo that
awny deep Inside of mo there was a
really beautiful kind of life, singing,
and burning blue aud red and gold as
it sang, and there wero days when 1
couldn't bear to think of It wasting
thoro and nobody know lt.
Not that Henry didn't take an Interest in mo-.His |-in(j 0f interest—If
1 was sick or hurt, or seeing tliat I had

nothing happened. Nobody took any
notice of no- but one woman. She
was uboul luy age, plain-looking and
rather sad. Id be proud lo mention
her name; but I've talked about ber
a great ilea), and, with all my being
so disappointed, it isn't so bad Uut
might lie worse if everybody got
Hml out about it. Site was really
much greater writer than the rest of
litem; but, I am ashamed to say it,
just ai first, perhaps because she wr.s
so llttin different, from me on -he outside, mid perhaps Just because she was
a woman, I didn't seem lo cure much
abntd her. I don't know why I -diould-
ti't say It, but 1 did want lo have something to do with Interesting men. People ce*»m to think that wheu n woman
is married she has got all that's coming to her; but we're not very different
from men, and they have to have
things, There are days sometimes
when il seems to me that nev-ir lo
have known any kind of men bul
Henry and the minister and old man
Truett, who doea our milking, wo ild
be mure than 1 could bear. I thought
if 1 could get to know a man who was
big enougb so I couldn't wa'k all
around him, so to speak—-somebody
that 1 could reach and not find the end
of—I shouldn't feel so—so frustrated.
There was a man thero who wrote
things that made you feel like Hiatus if you could take hands with blm
and go out and rescue shipwrecked
men and head rebellions. And wheu
I tried to talk lo him, I found him
looking at me tbe way young men used
to beforo 1 married Henry—as if ho
thought I wanted something, and it
was rather clever of him not to give
It to me. It was after that that I took
to sitting with the writer woman. I'd
noticed that though the men seemed
to respect her, and you saw them in
ei rners sometimes reading manuscripts
to her, tbey never louk her to walk, or
to see the moon rise, or the boats come
In, They spent nil that on the pretty
woman, young and kind of empty-
headed. I'd heard ihem talk when
they thought I wasn't listening. And
tho writer woman sat about with the
Other women, and didn't seem to mind
ll.
1 hoped when people saw mc wllh her
they'd think It was because she was
so famous, and not guess how terrible
it was to find yourself all ut once u
middle-aged woman sitting on a bench,
and all tbe world going by as If It was
Just what they ex peeled, lt came over
me thnt here wero all the things 1 had
dreamed about—the great aea roaring
landward, music, quick and guy; looks,
lillle incidents—-and I wasn't In It; I
wasn't In lt at all.
1 suppose the writer woman must
hnvo seen how It was with mo, but I
thought ul lirsl she was talking of herself.
"It's all very wonderful out there,
isn't It?" she said, looking toward the
nine wuter and Ihe bench shining like
a shell, wllh lhe other writers nnd
painter! walking up and down and
making It Into world stuff. "Very
wonderful - when you have the price
to pay f«r It!"
"It Is expensive." 1 was ihliiklng of
the hold, Uut 1 saw In a minute she
meant something else.
The plies you pay." Bhe said, "11 Isn't  being lit  lo be In Ihe Great  World

you're  In;   II   Is  what  yuu  contribute

I must bave said something nboul
liol  being able to s* e what  the kind of
women who were In contributed   Just
girls ami iiirty Kind of married Women.
"It's a klud of gnme keeping oilier
people    III,"    said    lhe    Wlll.'l*    WotllUll.
"They don't know much else, bul Uu-y
0, We ure, most of us,"
she Mid, "like those mulches that will
not light unless they nre struck upon
lhe box: iheie is a particular sort of
person Ibal seta us off,    H's a business,
lieing that sort of person."
"If anybody could only learn It—" I
tried  (o BOOm only polite.
"It Is the whole art," she snid, "of
putting yourself Into your appearance."
She laughed. "I have too much waist
for lhat sort of thing. I have my own
game."
I seemed suddenly to want to got
away to my room and think about ll.
I know it is absurd at my age. but 1
lay on tbo bed nnd cried as I hadn't
since Ihey told mo my bnby hadn't
lived. For I knew now that nil thnt
beautiful life Inside me couldn't be
imrii either, for I wns one who hnd to
havo help to be worth anything to my-
•elf. nnd 1 didn't know the game. I
hnd never known it.
All lhe time I hnd heen thinking thnt
all 1 needed was to find the right per
son; mid now 1 understood that, so fai
ns anybody eould guess, i wasn't the
right person myself. I hadn't thc url
of putting myself Into my appearance.
I'm shy about talk, and my arms are
too fat, und my skirts hnve a way of
banging short in front.
I've  thought about  It a  great deal
since,    lt   doesn't   seem   fair.    Nobody
told me about it when l was a girl;  1
think   nobody  tells  girls.      They   Just
have io soil of find it out; and if ui_y I
don't, nobody cares.   All they did tell I
me was aboul being good, ami you will:
be happy;  but It Isn't so.    There is a I
great deal more to It than lhat, and it ,
seems as If people ought to know.   1
tblnk we are mostly like thai In Cas-I
trovllle:   we've got powers und capacities  'way down  In  us,  bul wo don't
know anything about getting them out.
We think it ts living wben we have got |
upholstered furniture and a top buggy.
I know people who think it Is worth j
while never to have lived In a house
withoui a cupola.    Hut ail the time we
nre not in the game.   We do nol even;
know tliere is a game.
Sometimes 1 think, if it would do
me any good. I could turn in and learn
It now. I watched them at l-'alrshore, |
and ll teemed to me It could be loam*;
led. 1 have wild thoughts sometimes— \
such thoughts as men have when they j
go out and snatch things   but It would-
I n't do me any good. Henry's folks!
were always long-lived, and there aro|
days when I um so down that I am
| glad to havo even Henry.   As long as
i people see uh going about togethor they
can't know I'm rather looking forward to getting old now. 1 think perhaps  1  shan't  ;u*lii* so     I'.ul   1  should
ilk" to know how much Henry under
i stands
bis lefl  hand coming to assist.      Now,
\ il   is  pretty  well  known  lhat  If you
land a  weasel  grab each other at  the
same time he lias choice of holds.
j    "I have got him," snid  Treble,  then
added feelingly,   "but  he got me  first.
, Suffering Moses I   the little    cuss    is
grinding ids teeth in doepci."
The mullied screaming of the small
1 demon  died  away   as   Preble's  strong
I left hand crushed out  his life, but as
I long as there was a spark of lt re-
I malning, those desperate   jaws were
\ grinding  deeper   into   his   thumb.      It
i seemed a remarkably long affair lo us,
und from time to timi, us Treble let
| off some fierce ejaculation, one of us
would usk, "Hello!    Are you two sllll
al   11,"   or   "How   are   you  and   your
I friend these limes, Treble?"
In a  few minutes It wus over, but

havo Inspired himself with lockjaw, for
j his teeth wore so driven iu and double-
locked,   thut   1   bad   to  pry   the  jaws

The weasel may now be seen in the
American Museum, and Treble In the
Agricultural Department at Washington. Ho   lutter none the worse.

COST OF DIRTY EGGS
While there are a few egg producers
who take the best care of their product,
the average fanner consider--  ths  Sgg
produced 00 the farm a by-produ ■. I   1
j makes vory llttlo provision for their
'care aside from gathering them. A
1 large loss is caused by dirty eggs, th*
number being enormous*, anil an »rding
to the estimate of Secretary Wilson, of
the Department of Agriculture, this
money loss to the farmer*, in th - ! *■ I
States amounting to about 13,000,000
annually.
This* loss is very largely bl [I I
about by not gathering the *■„.■ oftel
enough.    In   w.t   wealth r   n ire  dirty
OggS are found Ilmn at  ;mv Other t-IOO.
Tin- Is caused by the fact that tie* boa's
feet   are   often   covered   with   mud   oi
other  Ulili. nml  in going mi tbo nest
to lay she soils the OggS already tn tlu/
nest.
An insufficient   number   **t' nests is
often the caUSO of many of the dirty
OggS found. Bns nre laid on the
ground and around tho hay nnd straw
racks, und becoming strained,arevelassed
ns "dirties,"    Again, when too many
bggs are allowed to remain in a nest,
Some are broken, and many of the
others becomo smeared with broken
yolks. .This condition is often brought
about by allowing the broody hens tp
Use the same nostS with the layers. Oh
a farm where one nest for every four
i hens is provided, ami the nests are kept
clean nml well bedded, it is found that
very few dirty eggs nre produced.
After gat boring the eggs, tare should
be taken not to put them where they
n I "will become boated] or near oil, onions,

Germs discharged from the mouth
nnd nose are coughed up from th*
lungs, and are sprayed over lbo food
in front of tbe cow, nr uro carried lr>
tho nir for a time until they fnll u
lbo ground.     Cows In adjoining stnlb
fresh, they invariably sell ns '■ seconds," and when but a few dirty eggs
aro mixed wilh an otherwise 'fresh,
clean lot, they materially docronse the
prico of the clean eggs.
