Owing to the prevalence of
Typhoid Fever in many parts of thc
Dominion of Canada, the attention
of the general public is called to the
protection afforded to this disease
liy the Inoculation ol Typhoid Vaccine. The vaccine may lie injected
by a doctor, or in lbc case of a doctor not heing at hand, a trained
nurse could carry oul the procedure.
The lirst injection of vaccine,
am.uniting lo n few drops of a
sterile liquid introduced under the
skin, is followed in ten days' time
hy a larger injection, and for greater security n third may be given ten
days after the second. A few hours
after lhe lirsl injection, a little headache and slight malaise may he experienced, wiih tondorness about
the point of Inoculation, This is
seldom sullicient to cause a man to
slop his work, as by the next mom-
| iug be usually fcclsos well as usual,
After lbc second and (bird inject ions
no reaction is produced, ihe ponton
seldom experiencing nny discomfort
whatever, ll is signilicnnt lhal
many large employers of Inlxir have
gone int.. lliis subject deeply, with
gratifying results, statistics having
shown that of those proporly Inoculated practically none Imve taken
typhoid within a year, and protool*
lion is prol.alily alTnnlcil for n much
longer period. This method should
appeal to friendly societies aud
labour unions who pay benefits to
Iheir sick members.   Typhoid Vac
Hatch,of tho Commercial,who wns
aroused by the report saw two men
leave the shop and were joined by
a third, when the three walked east
along Westminster avenue. The
cash box containing about 880 in
cosh and 870 in cheques was taken.
The only trace left by the burglars
was a carpenter's chisel. Up to the
time of going to press no truce of
the men was secured. It is reported that on Monday night a burglary
was commit ted at Harrison Mills
and it is possible that the same men
are guilty of lioth deeds.
Besides the (80 Barret & Banford loose the safe whicli is a total
wreck.
On Thursday morning alxiut two
o'clock three men blew up the safe
in the general store of Mr. Pair, Immigration olliccrat Cloverdnle. The
(eport of the explosion brought residents to the spot before tlie trio
secured any of the spoils, and they
decamped in short order. The only
clue left was a ono and a quarter
inch carpenter's chisel the same as
was left at Barrett & Banfords.

it was in the palace In ru thai Ahab

therein u frequent reference to a vtue-

vineyard of Naboth.
This is the tlrst and only palace of

deepen intorost to archaeologists and
Biblical students, it wus undoubtedly an Immense edifice, occupying about
two acres of space, consisting of

Here and thero aland portions of the
finished wall to the height of several
courses of stone.
Of (ho Roman remains found, tho
most imposing is a 90 fool wide stair-

Roman bastllcla was also uncovered,

may be valuable documents hor'/ that

Chief o* the police of Paris, who has
planned BUlts of armor for his men.
The recent scries (. murderous attacks by motor bandits upon tlio
Paris police lias set M. Leplne seeking for some form of protective armor which will render his subordinates
bullet proof when fuce to face with
armed criminals.
As i>  preliminary a    special    sleet
breastplate of the kind worn by the
British Hfe guards has boen manufac
tured, and this was subjected to Revert) tests yesterday with a view to
testing its bullet-stopping value.
The armor, which Is Intended to he
worn under ordinary coat or overcoat, wus placed upon a mannequin or
lay figure. When a detective, armed
with u Browning revolver of small caliber, fired at the steel-protected mannequin from a distance of fifteen yards

GLASGOW'S  NIGHT SCHOOL
In a big. live Btorey-aud-basement
building in Glasgow, where the Technical College is located. 5(10 youug
specialists work amongst test tubes,
text-books and assay furnaces daily.
Hut at night the visitor sees the en-
raiment jump from 5i)u to more than
5.000, and along with the night course
collegians two regiments of student
workingmen march in and the whole
building is packed.
For ten shillings ($2.50) a term, a
Glasgow man may learn at the night
trade classes the flrat principles of
the plumber's or printer's trade, says
the Technical World Magazine, and
for seven an- sixpence ($1.87) boiler-
making or sheet metal work; for five
1 shillings ($1.25) how to cut cobblers'
I patterns or a course for a shoe store
salesman.
There ar- rooms full of looms and
fabrics nnd dyes. If the student cares
to learn the principles and practice of
textile manufacture, and there are
other laboratories for bakers, watchmakers, tailors, furnitur3 designers or
sailors. Three in every four of his
classmates will he older than twenty,
so he need feel no shame at going
to school again. Hundreds of the
men he passes In the halls will have
only t-. common school education.
That Public school buildings should
be used only a few hours ln the daytime Implies an inadequate return on
the taxpayers' Investment. In Glasgow
Scotch practicability has seen this
and applied a remedy. Result: the
efficiency of an education plant was
multiplied by ten.
It Is characteristic of the Scotch to
solve a problem by commonsense,
whenever such a problem arises. Are
their schoolrooms empty at night?
Then they must be tilled! The Invitation Is given and the thing Is done.

CHARACTER IN WALKING
Obstinate people who. in argument
rely more on muscularity than on Intellectual power rest the feet flatly
and flrmly on tho ground, walk heav-
llv and slowly, and stand with legs
firmly planted and far npart. Quick
steps are Indicative of energy and
agitation. Tiptoe walking symbolizes surprise, curiosity, discretion, or
mystery. Turnlng-ln toes are often
found with preoccupied, absent-minded persons. The miser's walk Is represented as stooping nnd nolseleaB.
with short, nervous, anxious steps.
Slow steps, long or short, suggest a
gentle or reflective stnte of mind.
When a revengeful purpose Is hidden
under a feigned smile Ihe step will
be slinking nnd noiseless. The proud
step Is slow nnd measured, the toes
are crnsplcuously turned out. the
legs straightened. Where Ihe direction of the step wavers nnd follows
every changing Impulse of the mind.
It Inevitably betrays uncertainty, hesitation nnd Indecision.
THE MUSEUM LECTURER
It la reported In Nature that the
Installation of an ulMclal guide tn tlio
collections ot the llritish Museum
has been such n success that the Natural IHstur Museum at South Kensington has added a similar functionary to Ita staff. He will make two
trips a day through thc Museum,
each ono lasting an hour, and presumably Involving a visit to and brief
explanation of the must Interesting
and Instructive habits. To say thut
this plan will double tlle educational
value of the Museum Is to state the
case for it very mildly. Kor many
of the visitors, probably tho vast majority of them, the collections ln such
museums 11n1lesrrlb.nl, mean nothing.
The same thing Is truo to a lesser degree In zoological gardens, and even
art museums. The pn.vision of a lecturer, sufficiently (and obviously)
scientific or artistic, so that the tipping problem was eliminated, would
add enormously to the value of every
public museum. There seems no way
In which the amount of money necessary tt. secure the services of a really
competent man for this position could
be spent to better advantage.    __

reply of Yah. sir.

No, sir.

WHY WORRY?
Over and over agalu we have been
told that worry—uot work—kills.
Yet how very little attention the
average Individual pays to the injunction. Don't Worry.
Worry il ls that depresses; worry
lt ts that makes the lunatic, worry-
it Is thut Induces suicide.
Yet there are folk in the world who
seem lo positively glory In their worries, and who are never tired of
boasting of them.
No doubt It Is easier for the onlooker to say don't worry, than it is for
the one thus admonished to carry out
the order.
Yet when all Is said and done, why-
worry ?
Whal Is there to gain through worrying.
Has anyone ever been a whit the
easier, happier or healthier through
worrying.
Assuredly not! Worry has never
contributed one single lota of happiness or of good cheer-
Therefore refuse to worry or be
worried. If one of life's problems
comes along and has to be faced, why,
face it; but put the best face upon
It and In any case, do not worry.

heart would palpitate violently, nnd
would have a feeling as though I was
smothering. My appetite was poor,

The Loading Platform
Tho Loading Platform nnno an the sequel to the declaration by the
Manitoba drain Act that th.* ruilwuy companies must provide airs for
farmers Into which they can loud their grain dlreot when they desire to
ship It in car lots. Previous to thnt the railways enforced a rule of their
own making, thut all grain for shipment In hulk musl be loaded through
nn elevator If such existed at the country shipping point. Now. however.
the railways must furnish cunt under cirtain equitable regulations to all
farmH at all shipping points. Then facilities for farmers shipping their
grain are naturally morn plentiful In Menltnba than In Saskatchewan and
Alberta, and the eatenslve use of them by the Manitoba farmers, accounts
largely for the failure of Government elevators In Manitoba. As railway
development -progresses competition between the railways to secure freight
Increases, and the facilltius loi capturing the freight arising adjacent to
the railways are Increased and In this way the time cannot be far distant
when the western provinces will have na plentiful supply of shipping facilities as Manitoba.
We have always advocated the loading platform and Dominion Government terminal elevators. The use of these two together would eliminate
many If not most of tne reasonable complsints in connection with the farmer
shipping and disposing of his gram. We would therefore Impress on the
farmer the desirability of getting the In bit of using the loading platform to
the fullest extent possible   In direct loading and lmlepcnd-*nt shipping.
We continue, to act as the farmers' agent lu looking after and disposing
of car lot shipments on commission. W<> ar" not open to buy the farmer's
grain on our own account. We make liberal advances on car bills of hiding.

EDITORIAL   COMMENT
According to the report of the
iluK tux collector there are a largo
number of dogs whose owners hnve
cast them adrift. Honest people
pay this tax, The Council should
trace every, dog hi its owner or chase
it to the bone yard. The city in
full nl'yapping pups that are neither
ornamental, companionable or useful except to make n row at nights
or occupy space on the sidewalks
dining the dny. Collect the dog
tax or banish tlic dogs.
I One of the desirable things among
men is the purity of expression.
When one has a thought to utter
he should be able to do so without
punctuating it with profanity.
Nothing is added to the thought by
such digressions. Not only is the
speaker enveloped in a fog of blasphemy but he pnlutes the very
atmosphere for better mon, and even
women and children nre not immune
from his accursed breath. Out of
the abundance of the heart the month
speitketh.
Whal citizen is there ill Chilliwaek who dues not feel some degree
of self pride in its welfare? That
cannot call to mind some meritorious advantage which cauld be spoken »f to advantage when ever an
opportunity is afforded them? Who
is tliere among our people who bus
not the patriotism in his views tn
stand luridly up iti defence of and
contradict any statement made that
he knew would prove injurious to
our town, and people? Who does
nol wish to have it said of thom
when they are gone that the town
nml community In which they lived
has been made some better by them
having lived in it?
If any tax payers have doubts as
to the necessity of a new High
School for Chilliwaek a visit to tlie
building tit present doing service,
would completely extinguish that
doubt. Besides its unsuitabilily
for the purpose the beginning of the
fall term linds the students packed
into it like sardines in a box. In
fact one class cannot find seating accomodation. In nn age
is the value of education to
humanity recognized to a greater
degree than at the present time,
and every community and individual, with a little bit of knowledge
of the conditions which meet thc
young of lo-diy, and a spark of
unselfishness, wants tlie best educa
tional facilities provided, consistent
with the needs and means of the
community.
"Debt" some one has said is con
eentratcd essence of misery, yes, the
double distilled essence of misery,
and why should it lie so, money is
plentiful, but there seems lo be a
desire on the part of a number of
the buying public to get goods with
out paying for them when they pur
chase them, and in nine classes out
of ten, these same people as soon as
they arc asked for the money will
leave the merchant and take their
cash and spend it some place else.
Now this is the double distilled
essence of meaness. Mnny a good
man lias to close his doors because
these people act so, for lie cannot
get his money in to meet liis obligations. The greatest favor that
could be done for a purchasing
public would be for every merchant
to do a strictly cosh Inisiness.
Every thrifty housewife abhors debt
und she will not buy anything she
cannot pay for, these arc tlie people
who have their bank nccounts and
are prospering, such people's trade
is appreciated and get tlic preference
in all things,liesiiles,they are assisting the merchant in such a way that
he is able to make bis discount and
pay spot cash for his goods. Now
take the debt monger, he or she
never has anything, they spend
their money on some trival thing
which is of uo benefit to them, they
arc at every excursion, to every
amusement that comes along, and
then they wonder why Ibey cannot
pay their dobts, Do you know the
reason, its lieeause you are not
honest. What busincs have you
to take the money for your amusement (hat ought to go to pay your
grocery or dry   goods hill.    Mr.
Junes or Mr. Murphy is simply pay-
ing for your style or amusement.
THE CITY COUNCIL
Considerable business and over
$10,000 ill accounts were dealt with
by the city aldermen in a regular
meeting held at the city hull on
Monday evening, nt whicli all the
members were present.
The payment of the cost of street
sprinkling was up for decision.
Half the eost will be paid out of
general revenue and tlie other half
by owners of property benefited on
the basis of aasessment on improvements at half value.
A considerable delegation of owners of property in the vicinity of
Cheam avenue was present to ask
fur drainage in conjunction with
the scheme outlined for carrying
If the surface water from the
South Eastern section of the city.
II. C. E. ll. property is also affected
and City Engineer Henderson was
asked to prepare plans and estimates
For a scheme to meet the demands
uf the ease, the Mayor, Aid. Gorvan
and McGillivroy boing • appointed
to confer with thc II. C. 10. It., and
obtain if possible their co-operation.
O, L. Marston wrote suggesting
that the city license law be amend-
eli fixing the yearly automobile
ii'onso fee at 8'20 por car instead
of 80O. The Aldermen acquiosopd
in lhe matter and lhe lly-lnw will
be amended,
The Presbyterian Stili-ilivisinii
l>litii was again presented and when
all the necessary names are signed,
the Mayor and Clerk were authorized
to sign the plan.
Chief of Police,!. W. Derby made
application for two stop watches to
lie used in checking up the speed
of automobiles on city streels. Referred to Police Commission.
With reference to (he recent visit
of A. Puives or the B. 0. E. R. to
the city, the Mayor reported, that
the Company proposed erecting a
store for the display of eleetriu fixtures near Cheam ave. and would
place an arc light in that vicinity.
The Company was also agreeable to
the construction of a cement walk
in front of their property on the
west side of Young street, to a |Kiint
where the track loop protrudes over
the property line just south of the
station. This program was considered satisfactory. Mr. Purves asked
(hut Hope street at the freight sheds
be improved.
The light and power department
of the B. C. B. R. does not seem to
be in any hurry to remove the poles
from the sidewalk on tbe south side
of Gore avenue, and the completion
of the sidewalk there is lieing delayed. On motion the Company
was given until Aug. ill to have
the ikries removed.
The Mayor then stilted the post
tion of tlic waterworks deal. As is
generally known the City Cotinci
was advised that the plan of pur
chase as submitted to tlic citizens
some two months ago, wuuld not
affect the city's credit beyond thc
amount of the By-law 8100,000. lt
now transpires tliat the legal fraternity agree that the loan to lie secured
by a mortgage on the system will
also stand against the credit of tlie
city, ln addition to this thc council is advised that a By-law authorising the total expenditure ami fixing
the water rates, etc., must bo submitted. This latter letpiircmcnt
proves a puzzle to the lay mind.
The Mayor advised the submitting
of a By-law Tor 8200,000 for the
purchase of the system to lie voted
on with llie other By-law. The
Council has tlie power to complete
the deal on llie present basis but
Mayor stated it would be more costly
witli no advantages to be derived.
After some discussion the subject
was given over to the Finance Committee to report on at a special
meeting of tho Council to lie held on
Thursday evening.
The procuring of a city ting pound
to accommodate the numerous ownerless tlogs for the lawful period of
lime, Iwfon lieing given a puss tt
dngdoni, was a subject of discussion

One of the desirable tilings among
men is the purity of expression.
When one has a thought to utter
he should be able to do so without
punctuating it with profanity,
Nothing is added to the thought by
such digressions. Not only is the
speaker enveloped in it fog of blasphemy but Im polutes the very
atmosphere for better men, and even
women and children are not immune

the abundance of the heart the mouth
Bpcaketh,
What citizen is there iu Chilliwaek who dues not feel BOmo degree,
of self pride in its welfare? That
cannot call to mind some meritorious advantage which cauld be spoken of to advantage when ever an
opportunity is afforded them? Who
is there among our people who has
not the patriotism in liis views to
stand Imlilly up in defence of and
contradict, any statement made that
he knew would prove injurious to
our town, and people? Who does
not wish to have it saitl of them
when they arc gone that the town
and community in which they lived
has been made some better by them
having lived in it?
If any tax payers have doubts as
to the necessity of a new High
School for Chilliwack a visit to the
building at present doing service,
would completely extinguish thai
doubt, Besides its immutability
for lhe purpose the beginning of thc
fall term finds the students packed
into it like sardines in u box. ln
fact one class cannot find seating accomodation. In no age
is the value of education to
humanity recognized to si greater
degree than at the present time,
and every community and individual, with a little bit of knowledge
of the conditions which meet the
young of to-day, antl a spark of
unselfishness, wants the best cduca
tional facilities provided, consistent
with tlie needs and means of tlie
community.
"Debt" some one has said is con
centrnted essence of misery, yes, the
double distilled essence of misery,
antl why should it be so, money is
plentiful, but there seems to lie a
desire on thc part of a numlier of
the buying public to get goods will.
out paying for them when they purchase them, and in nine classes out
of ten, these same people ns soon as
they are asked for the money will
leave tlic merchant and take their
cash and spend it some place else.
Now this is the double distilled
essence of menness. Mnny a good
mnn has to close his doors because
these people aet so, for he cannot
get his money in to meet his obligations. The greatest favor that
could be done for a purchasing
public would be for every merchant
In tlo a strictly cash business.
Every thrifty housewife abhors debt
and she will not buy anything she
cannot pay for, these arc the people
who have their bank accounts and
are prospering, such people's trade
is appreciated and get tlie preference
in all things,besides,they ure assisting thc merchant in such a way tliat
he is able to make his discount antl
pay spot cash for his goods. Now
take the debt monger, ho or she
never has anything, tliey spend
their money on some trival thing
whieh is of no benefit to them, they
are at everv excursion, to every
amusement that comes along, and
then they wonder why they cannot
pay tbeir debts. Do you know the
reason, its because ynu are not
honest. What busincs have you
to take the money for your iiiuuse-
ineiit that ought to go t.i pay your
grocery  or dry   guilds  bill.    Mr.

THE CITY COUNCIL
Considerable business and over
$10,000 in accounts were dealt with
by the city aldermen in a regular
meeting held at the city hall on
Monday evening, at which all the
members were present.
The payment of the cost of street
sprinkling was up for decision.
Half the cost will he paid out of
general revenue and the other half
by owners nf property benefited on
tho basis of assessment on improvements at half value.
A considerable delegation of owners of property iu the vicinity of
Cheam avenue was present to ask
for drainage in conjunction with
the scheme outlined for carrying
off the surface water from the
South Eastern section of the city.
11. 0. E. II. properly is also ullecled
and City Engineer Henderson was
asked to prepare plans and estimates
for a scheme to meet the demands
of tha case, the Mayor, Aid. Gorvan
nd Mcdillivray being appointed
to confer with the II. ('. E. li., nnd
obtain if possible tholr co-operation,
0. L. Marston wrote suggesting
that the city license law bo amend-
eb fixing the yearly automobile
icense fee at 820 per car instead
nf 8o0. The Aldermen acquiesced
in the matter and lha lly-lnw will
be amended.
The Presbyterian Sub-division
|il,in was again presented and when
all the necessary names arc signed,
the Mayor ami Clerk were authorized
to sign the plan.
Chief of Police J. W. Derby made
application for two slop watches to
be used in checking up the speed
of automobiles on city slreels. Referred to Police Commission,
With reference to the recent visit
of A. Purves of the B. C. E. R. to
the city, the Mayor reported, thai
the Company proposed erecting a
store for the display of electric fixtures near Cheam ave. and would
place an arc light in that vicinity.
Tlie Company wits also agreeable to
the construction of a cement walk
in front of their property on the
west side of Young street, to a |>oiiit
where tlie track loop protrudes over
thc property line just south of the
station. This program was considered satisfactory. Mr. Purves asked
that Hope street at tlie freight sheds
be improved.
The light aud power department
of the B. O. E. R. does not seem to
be in any hurry to remove the poles
from the sidewalk on the south side
of Gore avenue, and the completion
of the sidewalk there is lieing delayed. On motion the Company
was given until Aug. Ill to have
the poles removed.
The Mayor then stated tlie position of tlie waterworks deal. As is
generally known the City Council
was advised that the plan of purchase as submitted to the citizens
some two months ago, would not
affect the city's credit beyond thc
amount of the By-law 9100,000. lt
now transpires tliat the legal fraternity agree tliat the loan to lie secured
by a mortgage on the system will
also stand against the credit of the
city. In addition to this the council is advised that a By-law authorizing the total expenditure and fixing
the wuter rates, etc., must bo submitted. This latter requirement
proves a puzzle to the lay mind
The Mayor advised the submitting
of a By-law for 8200,000 for the
purchase of the system to lie voted
on with tlie other By-law. The
Council lias the power to complete
the deal on the presenl basis but
Mayor stilted it would lie more costly
with no advantages to Ihi derived.
After some discussion lhe subject
was given over to the Finance Coin
mittee to report on nt u special
meeting of the Council to be held on
Thursday evening.
The procuring of aoltydog ixiund
to accommodato the numerous own
erless dogs for the lawful period of

Both preacher and priest should
remember that the State cares nothing whatever about the religious
rites antl forms of marriage. As a
mutter of convenience the clergy
have lieen delegated here in Canada
to marry iicople who have decided
to enter into a contract to set up a
new family. The clergy shnuhl remember, however, that the service
used nmy be long or short. There
muy be no prayers or they may lie
hours long. The couple nre not
married legally if they hnve nol
procured the State's license to do so,
and the essential portion of the
eelebaiit's ritual is the brief sententc
pronouncing tbem man ami wife.
If preachers and priests fall out as
to their respective rights in the
marrying profession, tlie State will
probably delegate the duty of representing it at such functions to the
magistrates or postmasters.  —Ex.

GREAT SEAL OF ENGLAND
Besides being stolen, and twice
thrown Into rivers, the Great Seal of
Etiglnnd was onco buried to escape
being burned, In 18S_ Lord Chancellor Eldon_ house took firo. and he!
promptly rushed away with the Great
Seal, which ho buried int the flower-
girden On returning, he records in
bis diary, he was "so enchanted with
the pretty Bight of the maids, who'
had turned out of their beds and were
handling buckets of water to the tlro-i
engine, all in their shifts, and so j
alarmed for the safety nf Lady Eldon,
that, next morning he could not re-i
member in which flower-bed he had
' uried the Seal. You never saw,'
aids Lord Eldon, anything so ridiculous os the whole family down the
walks dibbling wiih bits of stick until we found it
Mr, Adolphus Liddell, who has been
secretary to many Lord Chancellors,
describes in his Reminiscences how
;mi impression of the Great. Seal Is
made. The wax is not put upon the
paper os in ordinary seals, but la in
the shape of a disc with an ImpresBlon
on each side. This la kept In a tin
or plated ease, and attached to the
daoum-nt by a tag embedded In wax.
Consequently the seal itself is not a
signet, but consists of two heavy silver plates In one of which is cut the
impression of the front, of the device.
In the other that for the back. The
present plates were made at a cost of
C700. When a seal is required a
large chunk of wax Is first softened
In hot water, then cooled In cold, after
which it is placed between the two
plates and pressed, emerging In the
shape above mentioned.
THE WAY IN MANX
A Manx employer has invoked the
aid of a 17th century statute penalizing a laborer who leaves hia employment without due notlco with imprisonment on bread and water. There
ia another unrepealed Manx law the
enforcement of which would cause
some agitation ln the island. It enjoins all Scots to avoid the land with
the next vessel that goeth into Scotland, upon pnln of forfeiture of their
gmds ..nd bodle. to prison. This
law waa th'* result of a series of raids
on the Manx coast by a Galloway rover named MacCullock, whose name
Inspired a prayer:
God keep the good corn.
The sheer and the bullock.
From  Satan,  from  sin.
And Cutla- MacCullock!

CHILDHOOD  DANGERS
More Praise for Dr. Hamilton's Pills.
For a period last summer the
thought of food excited feelings of
nausea." writes .Mrs. C. A. Dodge, of
Bloouisbury. "The heat had made me
listless and the distaste for food reduced me in a condition of Beml-star-
yation and brought me to the verge of
nervous collapse. Tonics were useless to restore an active desire for
fond. The doctors told me my liver,
and kidneys were both at fault, but
the medicines they gave ine were too
sever-', and reduced my strength so
that I had to abandon them. At
the suggestion of a friend who had
boen Hired of blood and skin trouble,
I begun the use of Dr, Hamilton's
Pills. The difference I first noticed
was, tliat while they cleansed the system. Instead nt feeling weaker ! roll
better afler taking them. Indeed
Iheir activity was sn mild it was easy
to forget 1 had taken ihem at all':
they seemed to go right to the liver,
and in a very brief time not only did
all BQUrce of nausea disappear, but I
begun to crave fund and I digested U
reasonably well. Then I began to put

PIECE OF NEWTON'S APPLE TREE
The British Koyal Astrouomical Society has recently become tho owner
of an interesting, because apparently
well authenticated, relic of Sir Isaac
Newton. This Is a small log from
the apple tree In the garden at Wool*
thorpe, on which the famous apple
(the most famous apple since Eve and
Eden, with the possible exception of
those of Helen of Troy nnd Wllhelm
Tell), grew. Mr. C. \V. Waller, of
Burwash, Sussex, who presented the
log to the society, sent the following

GLASGOW'S  NIGHT SCHOOL
j    In a big. live   storey-and-basement
1 luiii.ling in Glasgow, where the Technical College is   located.   5U0   young
! specialists work amongst test lubes,
■ texi-books and assay  furnaces daily.
; But at nighl (he visitor sees the enrolment, jump from 50') to more than
't.OOil. and ulong with the night course
collegians two regiments of   student
workingmen march in und the whole
building is packed.
For ten shillings ($2.50) a term, a
Glasgow man may learn at the night
trade classes the first principles of
the plumber's or printer's trade, says
the Technical World Magazine, and
for seven an' sixpence ($1.87) boiler-
making or sheet metal work; for five
shillings ($1.25) how lo cut cobblers'
j patterns or a course for a shoe store
salesman.
I There ar- rooms full of looms and
fabrics and dyes. If the student cares
to learn the principles and practice of
textile manufacture, and there are
other laboratories for bakers, watchmakers, tailors, furnitur. designers or
sailors. Three In every four of his
classmates will be older than twenty,
so he need feel no shame ut going
to school again. Hundreds of the
men he pusses ln the hulls will have
only r. common school education.
That Public Bchool buildings should
be used only a few houra In the daytime implies an Inadequate return on
the laxpuyera' Investment. In Glasgow
Scotch pructlcnblllty has seen this
and applied a remedy. Besult: the
eflieiei.ey of an education plant was
multiplied by ten.
It is characteristic of the Scotch to
solve a problem by commonsense,
whenever such u problem arises. Are
their schoolrooms empty at night?
Then they must be filled! The Invitation is given and the thing is done.

CHARACTER IN WALKING
Obstinate people who. In argument
rely more on musculnrlty than on Intellectual power rest the feet flatly
and firmly on the ground, walk heav-
llv nnd slowly, and stand with legs
firmly plnnled and fur npart. Quick
s-eps nre Indicative of energy and
agitation. Tiptoe walking symbolises surprise, curiosity, discretion, or
mystery. Turnlng-ln toes nre often
found with preoccupied, absent-minded persons. The miser's walk Is represented as Btooplng nnd noiseless
with short, nervous, anxious stepa.
Slow Bteps. long or ahnrt. suggcat n
gentle or reflective atate of mind.
When a revengeful purpose la hidden
under n feigned smile lhe step will
be Blinking and nnlaeleas. The proud
step Is slow nnd measured, the toes
are c. nsplcuouslv turned out. the
tegs Btrntghteneil. Where the direction of Ihe stop wavers and follows
every changing Impulse nf the mind,
It Inevitably betrays uncertnlnty. hes-
itatlon nnd Indeclalon.

of lhe vlslt-irs, probably tho Vast majority of them, the collections In such

The same thing la true to u lesser de-
gree In saologlcnl gardens, and even

add enormously to the vnlue of every

CURIOUS BELIEFS OF MOTHERS
London,—Four years' medical examination »f tiie children at lending
the Acton Council Schools has brought
to light ac astonishing number of
curious beliefs on the purl of the
mothers.
The medical officers In their annuiil
report Issued recently, says that
there ure still parents who hold that
whooping cough may he cured by taking a child near gas works or ihru a
tunnel; and in lung complaints there
appears to be a special vulue in
giiuse grease, which Is considered fur
superior lo other oils und medical remedies. Possibly this Is due, it Is
pointed out, to the energy and faith
with which It is applied.

WHY WORRY?
Over and over again we have been
told that worry—-uot work—kills.
Yet how very llttlo attention the
average Individual pays to the injunction. Don't Worry.
Worry It is that depresses; worry
It is that makes the lunatic; worry-
it ls thut induces suicide-
Yet there are folk in the world who
seem to positively glory in their worries, and who are never lired of
boasting ot them.
No doubt It Is easier for the onlooker to say don't worry, than It is for
the one thus admonished to carry out
the order.
Yet when all Is said and done, why
worry?
What ls there to gain through worrying.
Has anyone ever been a whit the
easier, happier or healthier through
worrying.
Assuredly not! Worry has never
contributed one single iota of happiness or of good cheer-
Therefore refuse to worry or be
worried. If one of life's problems
comes along and bos to be faced, why.
face it; but put the best face upon
It and in'any case, do not worry.

New Strength for
Nursing Mothers
Aching Backs and Tired Limbs Need
Not be Endured
Aching backs, tired limbs, attacks
of falntnesr, headaches and i.t!'.-
aches, need not be a part of woman's
life. There are times when her
blood needs special attention, and
these times are Indicated by one or
more of thc anov-e symptoms. It ls
at such times thnt Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills aro worth their weight In gold
to women, for they actually muke thc
rich, red health giving blood which
makes weak, tired, despondent women, active antl strong, nnd feeling
equal to ull their household duties.

good I received through Dr Williams'
Pink Pills. After my hnby was l.orn

lifo was really a burden. I had to
drag myself about to do my housework, nnd every moment was one of
trlnl. If 1 went upsinlrs I would be
breathless and tired oul, and ray
heart would palpitate violently, nnd
would hnvo a feeling as though I was
smothering. My appetite was poor,
and my baby was suffering from my
weakness. I was advised to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills and got six
bases, and before they were all quite
used 1 wns like a different woman.
My appetite returned; I regained my
strength, and tha work about the
houso nn longer bothered me. As
the result of my experience 1 would

nursing mothers to use Dr. William.'

Catarrhozono is. that no matter where
the germs of bronchitis or catarrh aro

destroy them.

For the first lime in nine months
a slight decrease in the cost of living
as compared with the previous
month is indicated in the monthly
report of wholesale and retail prices
issued by the department of labor.
During July, the index number, the
barometer of prices showed a slight
decrease. The wholesale index number fell from lo" to 185, but it is
still nine points above the level of
one year ago. There is a slight falling olt in the price of grains, fruits,
vegetables and hay. Hides,metals,
boots, shoes, lumber and furniture
on the other hand went up slightly.
In the retail brands potatoes and
sugar declined in price while eggs
and coal slightly increased. Meats
were firm. So far as the average
consumer is concerned, therefore,
the difference is not material as yet,
hut the falling off is taken as a hope-
ful indication for llie future.
A world without mistakes mid
without suffering would he a world
ithout real men and women, without literature, without music, without painting or sculpture, and without love, and even throughout history is a record of toward struggles
better and higher things. Without
obstacles to overcome and errors to
correct men and women would lapse
to a level of beasts in mentality.
Intellectual and spiritual development would cease and souls not refined bv the lire of ordeals would
die of something akin to tatty do-
generation. The race would perish
of ennui or insanity. After all it's
a pretty fair world as it stands,
Much advice might have been offered
at the worlds making if a few experienced old ladies had been standing by, but the odds are it would
not have been so good a world its it
is to-day.

"The inure I visit the west, lhe
more I am convinced of the necessity
of enacting the inosl stringent legislation against oriental immigration,"

in an interview wilh a Colonial reporter. "I am absolutely In favor
of any action, even if it involves
total exclusion, in order to keep

fraught with international difficulties. For that I care not,'and 1 am
convinced that if Canada were Input
