It can't be helped.     Right Is right.
A few significant glances were exchanged. That Thompson-Halllday
did not love Hanley was tolerably well
known. This enthusiasm for the abstract probity of nations had not the
ring about it of strict sincerity.
Mason and Morrlarty walked to tbelr
club together. ���

host's door closed behind them.

In the suit Halliday versus Hanley, I

I punctually to a minute, at the time
appointed, on the following day. Murgatroyd instamly noticed a subtle
change In his visitor, lie was carefully droned In a black froclc-cdat
with pepper-and-salt waistcoat and
trousers���all obviously new. Jordan's
whole air betokened' the well-to-do
tradesman, Iioucki with the scales,
sans peur et tans reproohe. Murgatroyd, who whb enjoying liis morning
pipe -'tier breakfast, felt Inclined to
laugh outright,
Jordan made a profound bow on
entering, and Murgatroyd without rising, held oul his hand. Jordan accepted the proffered civil-:y. nnd then
sat down on the chair the journalist
Indicated with a wave of his band.

he was a goodp'ueked 'un.
Yes! The sight of Inspector Murphy
from Scotland Yard quieted Mr, however, and In tlie end it wns all settled
as amicably bb the circumstance* permitted.
Jordan Indicated bis satisfaction,
Murgatroyd wint to a drawer in ills

out tho money he had promised Jordan, together with nn additional substantial present which was not in the
A gleam of tho old manner came
over Jordan when lie Baw the operation.
I don't call that exactly safe, sir,
a child might find its way in with a
Is anything safe?
Not much, sir, I am afraid. Jordan
had relapsed Into his new manner.
One would judge that depravity of all
kinds was alien to this simple unaffected nature.
Murgatroyd laughed out loud this
Well, your money ls safe at any
rate, and no doubt you will know how
to take care of It. Not that I often
keep anything of value here, he added,
not being too sure of immunity from
the propensity of his alley when their
present association was over.
Jordan received th money with
business-like alacrity, and was profuse
in his thanks for the added present.
Murgatroyd had made up h.s mind to
speak seriously to Jordan, about giving up the precarious living, which
could only have one ending if persevered In. He was forestalled, however; for Jordan had important news
to Impart.
Perhaps, sir, you are aware my
name Is not really Jordan? I took
the name in case of trouble. My folk
are some of them well up.
I thought it probable that you had
more namos than one, Murgatroyd
said balf-sarcastlcally, in the best
Pioneer manner.
Jordan   wincei.   Only   two,     sir,
a'help me.
What is your real one?
Alison James,   I   was   christened
nigh forty years ago.
You bear your years well.
Jordan took no notice of the Interruption.
Since I saw you last, .sir, circumstances have changed. 1 went to a
quiet club���not the one you found me
in_where I am known by my real
name. I found a letter for me there.

Murgatroyd was really rejoiced to
hear it. For in spite of his past bad
habits, he had all alon.; recognized
that there was good in the quondam
I am Jolly glad! Than you will not
go back to the old life at all?
Jordan is dead and burled. I was
the only mourner at the funeral.
Then, with the greatest, solemnity in
the world, he handed to Murgatroyd
a card with the words inscribed upon
Malsters, lleyihorpe, near Winchester
Only tbo best materials used. All orders promptly attended to. Office
hours, etc,

Heythorpe. I hope you will come
and see me, sir, if ever you are that
way. It is only two miles from Winchester, and has a station.
Murgatroyd promised. Alison stood
up to go.
I think, sir, by all I bear, you are
making a step up too?
In what way?
It is do secret, sir; all the- papers
are full of It���that you are to be member for Streatneld WeBt.
There's many a slip 'twixt the cup
and the lip. You mustn't believe all
you read in the papers.
Well sir, yon ought to know best
about that, seeing tbat yo.. write them,
Murgatroyd laughed.
Not the news���only the comment.
Well, I hope it's true anyway.     I
don't know where they will get a better member.

World's Record Made at Great Bliley
European shooting authorities are
enthusiastic In their praise of the remarkable marksmanship of Major P.
VV, Hlchardson at the annual meet of
England's National Hide Association
at UlBley, England.
In ihe London Daily Telegraph's report of the competition, July 22, ihls
Ifltntion is made of Major Richard-
son't work:

known marksman, wbo captained tho

Canada and Australia, bas created
what is believed lo be a world's record by scoring 311 consecutlvo bull's

A Genius In Mosaics
There reoen ly died at Ivry. a Bub-
urb of Paris, a remarkable old man
named J/ralssard, who. It it claimed,
could have been one of the world's
most famous sculptors, It he hnd so
desired, but who. Instead, lived In a
quiet, unpretentious way and finished
life as be began It, with very little

When a boy. Mr. Fraissard wiih apprenticed to a marble-cutter, says tbe
London News. For HO years he continued to execute iho most beautiful
works of art; mostly In mosaics, it
Is claimed that every piece of work
lie did was a masterpiece, and the two
rooms In which he lived contain a
wonderful colled ion ot beautiful objects. Ono is a black marble table
with chessboard in onyx, and some
cups, glasses and bottles. So delicate
is the workmanship that, the saucers
are transparent. Eight years were
occupied in the fashioning of this
piece of work".
M. Fralssard's masterpiece took him
nearly three times as long. It is a
black mnrble table. In the middle ls
a chessboard, on either side of which
are playing cari.-, arranged as fans.
On the table are dominoes and dice,
cigars and cigarettes and several
coins in gold and silver. All these
are, of course, inlaid. The materials
in the table besides the black marble,
are agate, onyx, porphry, malchite and
lapis lazuli, the tones of which are
black, red, orange, blue and white.
Ninety different kinds of marble were
also used.
In the old man's lodgings there are
dozens of mosaics, opal cupB, chandeliers and inkstands, inlaid In all sorts
of stones. Fifty years of overwork,
however, brought on a paralytic seizure, and for two years he had been
helpless. He would never part with
any of his works, no matter what price
was offered him.

Taking Tonics, and Built up on Right
The mistake is frequently made of
trying to build up a worn-out nervous
system on so-called tonics���drugs.
New material from which to rebuild
wasted nerve cells, is what should be
supplied, and this can be obtained only
from proper food.
"Two years ago I found myself on
the verge of a complete nervous collapse, due to overwork and . tudy, and
to lllne; ; 1: the family," writes a
young mother.
"My friends became alarmed because I grew ,.ale nnd thin and could
not sleep nghts. I took various tonics prescribed by physicians, but their
effects wore off shortly after I stopped
taking them. My food did not seem
to nourish me and I gained no flesh
nor blood.
Reading of Grape Nuts, - determined
to stop ihe tonici and see what a
change of diet would do. I ate Grape-
Nuts four times a t'.ay with cream and
drank milk also, went to bed early
after eating a dish of Grape-Nuts before retiring.
"In about two weekt I was sleeping
soundly. In a short time gained 201bs.
in weight and felt like a different
woman. My little daughter whom I
was obliged to keep out of school last
spring on account of chronic catarrh,
has changed from a thin, pale nervous
child to a rosy, healthy girl and has
gone back to school this fall.

only agents used to accomplish the
bappy results."

James Francis Dwyer, the Australian
novelist, tells the following story
about the Japanese. Dwyer began
as a reporter in Melbourne.
Japan sent a warship on invitation
to Australia, said he. We were to
unveil a monument in a park in the
interior of Melbourne. The Japanese
sailors were to grace the cccasion.
Not one of the Japanese had ever
been on shore there before. When
the morning of the unveiling came
Melbourne sent a mounted escort to
show the visitors the way to the park.
The escort wasn't needed. At the
head of the brown column marched
an officer with his nose on a map, pinned to a bit of board.
He never looked up, said Dwyer.
Now and then he'd give an order in
Japanese, and the column would wheel
to the left or right. Kind friends
would wave their hands at the mounted escort, marching proudly up the
wrong street, and tell them they had
lost the city's guests.
Two or three times that performance was repeated. Then the mounted escort gave it up in disgust. The
Japanese went to the park in the interior of the city straight as a pigeon
flies to a hole In the barn. Afterwards Dwyer and other reporters
measured the route and discovered
that the Japanese, guided only by
their war map, had taken the shortest route to their destination through
a strange city.

Tho llrst experiments were made
with cold-blooded animals and Insects
Butterflies were enclosed in ai vessel

actions ceased, and in ordinary phr&s

Professor Bnkhmetleff soon discov
ered, however, that by slow and care
ful warming they could be restored tc

showed that when the resuscitation,
process was begun at a body temper
ature of minus 4 1-2 degrees centigrade
recovery was quickest and most com
The next stage was the repetition
of the experiment on warm-bloodec
animals and en mammals. Two hundred tests in all were made and near
ly all succeeded. Bats were refrig

Suffered for  Years���Tried  all   Kinds
of Treatment���Surprised at Results
From Dr. Chase's Ointment.
You can soon tell when people are
enthusiastic about medical treatment
by the language they use.     After experimenting with all sorts    of   ointments in a vain effort to obtain relief
nnd cure, the writer ot this letter was
astonished at the quick and satisfactory results obtained by the use .of Dr.
Chase's Ointment.
"It worked like magic," she writes.
Endeetl, it is surprising the healing that
is often effected in a single night by
this great ointment. The stinging
und itching are relieved at once, and
cure is only a matter of time and patient treatment.
Mrs. Clethents, 13 Strange street,
Toronto, Out., writes: "I have suffered
irom eczema for years, and after using all kinds of ointments, at last tried
Dr. Chase's Ointment. It worked
like magic and proved a Godsend to
)ae. I would advise anyone suffering
irom eczema to try one box and be
convinced." 60 cents a box, all

An Oil That Is Famous.��� Though
Canada was not the birthplace of Dr.
Thomas' Eclectric Oil, It is tlie home
at that famous compound. From here
its good name was spread to Central
and South America, the West Indies,
Australia and New Zealand. That is
far afield enough to attest Its excellence! for in all these countries it ls
un sale aud iu demand.

Binlle at 0 notion so crude. Two
hundred years ago. ami more, South
American Indiana began relieving the
pangs of Indigestion by eating iho
stomachs of ostriches, We may imagine I'hi'in removing from those organs any rosldum ot nulls, or doorknobs, which might remain there. For
a long time Ihls rude remedy was
laughed at by Spaniards aud English
men. Today, throughout tho world
pepsin takes its piece among Jhe
trustworthy resources of pharmacy
and this pepsin ls prepared from the
stomachs, not of ostriches1, but of
swine���bravely competitive with os
trlches in feats of digestion.
Nutrition, which follows upon digestion, seems to depend upon lhe thyroid gland, conspicuous iu the human
throat as Adam's apple. When one
of the lower animals suffers the removal of Us thyroid gland, nutrition is
at once seriously disturbed. It the
poor brute under experiment has
pieces of fresh gland grafted beneath
Its skin, the derangement of nutrition
is forthwith checked. An extract
from such a gland serves just as well.
A singular fact ls that thyroid glands
in healthy and mature animals contain more iodine than does any other
tissue; and the activity of a gland as
a remedy is in proportion to tlie iodine
it contans. Why, nobody knows as
yet. But knowledge, though incomplete, may have great value as far as
it goes. In some parts of Europe, especially in Switzerland and Northern
Italy, the deformity known as cretinism, afflicts wide districts. This and
allied diseases of imperfect nutrition
aro accompanied by thyroid glands
cither withered or undeveloped. In
such cases welcome relief follows upon the administration of thyroid extract; its particles seem to fly to the
places where they find similar parti-,
cles, much as Iron filings speed to
the magnet swayed above them.
Other glands, In elaborate tests, are
proving to be equally helpful to physicians. Take, for example, those
borne immediately abov> the kidney.
They yield a preparation called adrenalin. This powerfully closes tlie
smaller blood-vessels, so that It arrests bleeding, which unchecked,
might threaten death. Its uses are
golden in many seveie surgical operations. Thus from a quarter unimag-
ined twenty years ago disease confronts a new foe, and health finds a
faithful defendei.

Poisoning by canned goods will not
occur if care is exercised in their
selection. Never purchase cans with
two lumps of soldier as this shows
that the contents had worked and so
had to be boiled over and re-sealed.
If top of can bulges outward do not
take the can as the contents are fermenting, and if finger is pressed on
can and dent fails right back in place
as soon as the *ngc-r is removed, the

If a can is bent or dented, one may

Brigandage in Northern Manchuria
Commercial conditions in North
Manchuria during tho year 1912. have
been fur from satisfactory, says Mr.
Mr. A. E. Eastes, the British Acting
Consul at Harbin, In his report for
lft!2. Even ai this great distance from
tho centre* ot the Chinese revolution
which broke out in ihe autumn of
1911, he says, its effects have been
manifested In lessening the already
sulllclently vague and Shadowy authority exercised by Chinese officialdom over tlie population.
A direct Incentive was thus given
lo lawless acts of brigandage, and
large numbers swelled the ranks of
tho redoubtable lluiighiit/.u or red
beards who infested the countryside
and made a prosperous livelihood by
means of rapine and Iho holding for
ransom of personB and properly. Such
terror did these men exercise that carriers refused to face tlie risk of Ilie
road unless very highly paid, and the
prices commanded for Uie hire of their
services and vehicles rose in ono hundred and fifty per cenl. iu excess of
the nonilnul figure.
Tho natural result was that far
smaller quantities or cereals were obtainable tban bad been anticipated,
and the local prices rose to an almost
prohibitive scale���from $ts ttb $20
per ton; failures were not Infrequent,
and the more substantial merchants
were In many cases only able to load
the vessels chartered lo fulfil their
forward contracts al a serlnus loss.
Instead of Ilie anticipated large increase in the exports of soya beans
liming the year 1912, for iho haulage
of which the Chinese Eastern Railway
had made elaborate preparations, the
value of exports of tills commodity
was actually only some 77 per cent,
of the figures reached in 1911.
Prior to the end of 1912 the Chinese
look no steps to cope witli tlie state
of affairs; it is, however, satisfactory
to be able lo report that at. the time
of writing (April, 1913) efficient military measures ot repression have been
carried out, and dn the chief producing
centres within 100 miles radius of
Harbin order and safety to life and
properly have been restored.
And there is Nothing Better Than
Dr. Williams' Pink Pil's fir
Toning Up the Blood
It Is said that woman's work is
never done, and it is a fact that whether In society or in the home her life
Is filled with more cares and more
worries than falls to ths lot of man.
For this reason women are compelled
regretfully to watch the growing pallor
of their cheeks, the coming of wrinkles
and the thinness that becomes more
distressing every day. Every woman
knows that, ill health and worry is a
fatal enemy to beauty, and that good
health gives tlie plainest face an en
during attractiveness.
What women fail to realize ls the
fact that if lhe blood supply is kept
rich and pure, the day of the coming of wrinkles, and pallor, dull eyes
and sharp headaches is immeasurably
postponed. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
are literally worth their weight in
gold to growing girls and women of
mature years. They fill the veins
with the rich, red blood that brings
brightness to Uie eye, the glow of
health to sallow cheeks, and charms
away the headaches and backache that
render the lives of so many women
constantly miserable.
Mrs. William Jones, Crow Lake,
Ont., says; "I feel that Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills saved my life. I was so
badly run down that I could hardly
drag myself around. I was so bloodless that I was as pale as a sheet, and
you could almost see through my
hands. In fact the doctor told me my
blood had all turned to water. I was
taking medicine constantly, but without benefit. My mother had so much
faith in Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, that
lie bought me two boxes and urged me
to take them. How 'hnnkful I am
that I followed her advice. Before
these were gone I began to feel better, and 1 continued using the Pills
until I had taken live moro boxes when
I was again enjoying the blessing of
perfect health, with a good color in my
face, a good appetite, aid I feel sure
a new lease of life. I will always,
you may be sure, be a warm friend
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."
If vou are weak or ailing begin to
cure yourself to-day with the rich red
blood'Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actually
make. If you do-not find the Pills at
your dealer's send 50 cents for a box
or $2.50 for six boxes to the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville. Ont.,
and they will lie scut you by mail,

Garter Knights
Tha elevation ot Earl Spencer to the
rank ot Garter Knight increases the
number of that august body to thirty
though it was formerly fixed at twenty-five. Its numbers were increased
to meet the growing demands of
George Ill's f.amlly. The origin of this
most noble puissant order is not definitely known. Two theories hold
the field. In the one romance predominates, the other is more prosaic. Giving romance pride of pli.ee, we hear
of a Countess of Salisbury and her
dropped garter, of Its replacement by
our chivalrous King Edward III., and
of his opposite remark to allay the I
jealous fears of his suspicious consort.
The more prosaic theory says that I

Why he Was Dejected
A well-known university professor
who has taken much interest in the
woman's suffrage movement, was persuaded to carry a banner in a parade
that was held in New York some
months ago.
His wife observed him marching
with a dejected air and carrying his
banner so that it hung limply on its
standard, and later she reproved him
for not making a better appearance.
Why didn't you march like somebody, and let people see your banner?
she said.
My dear, meekly replied the professor, did you see what was on the
banner? It read: Any man can vote-
Why can't 1?

Two girls were conversing the
other day, and one was heard to
observe to her companion: "Mother
is H'-ttinj; so queer; there's no
pleasing her." That's the lament
of many a young j;irl to-dav, but
let ns hope ii does not emanate from
the sensible ones. Ofcourse, mother
is getting queer in the estimation
of the modem product called girlhood���she would not be a sensible
old mother if she didn't feel queer-
and horrified���occasionally. What
with the actions nnd habits and
modes of dress and different ideas
that the girls of to-day ape and aim
at the wonder is that the well-
brought up mothers don't occasionally get something worse than
"queer." And ii there was nothing
of this to cause mother to be queer
she would still have some justification for feeling as slit often does.
No mother who has raised a family
can jj;et over a certain age without
feeling that w.iy many times.
There are physical reasons for it,
and there are also many mental
ones. She sees her loved ones
leaving her and going sometimes
far away, whether with those she
approves or disapproves only marks
the degree of the queer feeling inseparable from such disruptions of
the home life. Mother by that
time has sacrificed enough of herself to feel worn out���pains, heartaches and the bitterness often of
feeling neglected and unappreciated
have made her wish for rest many
a time. The girl who thinks her
mother "queer" is, no doubt, one
of the chief hear,aches of the
mother���her waywardness, indifference, and total lack of sympathy
have added many a pang to the
mother's aching heart. Then, it
is uot always the mother who is
queer. Very, very often it is the
daughter, who has imbibed the
queer notions of the age aud hasn't
got the sense to realize that, though
mother may bt old-fashioned, aud
her views and actions not those of
the present day, they are still the
views and actions of a dear old soul,
aud of a period that produced the
best of men and women. The
queerness some girls discover in
their mothers is often the distorted
views of a precocioua sex that seeks
to recognize no authority, no law,
and no morals, except its own
dangerous and perverted ones. So,
my young friend, when you come
to speak of your mother as queer,
revert the looking glass and take a
look at yourself. Perhaps a dispassionate, sensible glance will reveal where the chief fault lies.
There is a report going around in
the Old Land that Prince Alexander of Tech, brother of Queen
Mary, will be Canada's next governor general.

Women Succeed as Bankers
The possibilities of banking as a
career for women have been demonstrated by Farrow's Bank for Women,
which was inaugurated a couple of
years ago in London, England, and
which, managed entirely by women,
proved so successful that 't was recently moved to new and enlarged
The bank's success, In the opinion
of Mrs. Kate Kelly, the manageress, is
largely due to the hearty support il
has received from women.
In an interview she said: The eagerness with which women of all classes
aud from all parts ot the empire, took
up tha idea of an institution devoted
entirely to tlieir needs was in itself a
proof that Farrow's novel departure
was fulfilling a long-felt want.
Our bank gives women the privilege
of consulting one of their own sex
over their business affairs.
The business transacted here Is
precisely the same as that transacted
by any other Joint stock bank, and
the fact that all our staff consists ot
women is good evidence that one sex
ls not more gifted than the other In
accuracy and a head for figures.
A feature of our establishment hero
is a rendezvous room for our clients,
where they can meet their friends and

get here, anyway?
Oh, dat train won't be In for a long

In a few minutes, however, a train
was seen crawling toward the station.
There comes the train! exclaimed the
traveller, exultantly, to the darkey.
Seems to me you dor. t know your
business, If I'm not mistaken.
Say, mister, replied the darky, I reckon you's a perfect stranger around

How Rockefeller Got His Start
When 1 wus ten years old I hud succeeded in earning some money. It
was $50. I loaned it to a neighbor at
7 per cent, interest. In a year the
money earned me $:��.!iU. From that
time onward I determined to make
money work for me,
Ho writes John Davison Rockefeller
who began to mako ti living almost as
soon as ho could work. At 10 he
was earning 37 cents a duy hoeing
a neighbor's potato fields. Iu 1853,
when he was 14, he left his Tioga
County, N.Y., birthplace for Cleveland.
There he got a j >h as office boy. Later he became a clerk; then cashier and
bookkeeper for a mercantile house. He
and two friends managed to borrow
enough money to take hold of a petroleum refinery. Rockfel.cr saw wonderful possibilities in oil and he reached
out for one refinery after another, until in 1861 ,he was able to organize
the S'audard Oil Co. Six years later
the Standard Oil Trust was formed
and Rockefeller was on the way to fabulous fortune. He had a genius for
borrowing. Indeed, his start was
made on borrowed capital plus genius.
He is snld :o have been worth less
than $1,000 in liis own right when ho
was 30. But the borrowed money
worked for htm until there was no
further need to borrow.

A morning of enchantment was

Tbey started while tbe mists wero

coat in anticipation uf the coolness of

a wearying climb, they gained a spot
where it seemed advisable to eat their

goes preying for the family dinner,"
Stanford Informed bis companion.
"Then by hurrying we'll have time to
climb and take u peep at the little
eaglets and get away before the old
bird returns."
Tit a few moments they saw the
m-idicr bird sour upward with great
thread or wings nnu circle um orer
ihe valley.
"Now Is our time,'' said Stanford,
>|>rlnglng up anil lending the way, "hut
ivo must hurl'}."
A hard scramble over a scries ot
ragged bowlders brought tbem to tha
jrag where the eagle had built her
nest. Four young eagles stretched out
Ihelr feutherless necks, their yellow
hunks wide open for the expected iliu,
tier of blond wnrm flesh.
Suddenly Stanford gave a cry of distil ny.
"Quick! Quick!" bo shunted, "Theuld
lilrd Is coining buck!" And, grasping
.Tcunnettc by tbe arm. be rusoed net
awny from the nest.
But tho miglo wits coming with the
rapidity of a rocket und was upon
tiiem before '.hey had got very far. Attracted probably by her red coat, the
enraged bird mnde straight for Jean-
nolle. Stanford succeeded In only partially saving her from tho onslaught.
One of the lingo wings struck ber a
glancing blow and knocked het down.
The euglo wns carried fnr beyond

dropping the rabbit it bad brought lor
ns young, it circled quickly and re>
luiu d to renew lhe attack,
Stanford looked about for n weapon.
lio grasped a young scrub oak, struggling for growth In the barren soil, nnd
lore It up by the fouls. Swinging It In
lhe air. he brought it down on the
eagle's bend ns the great bird poised
over the prostrate girl to attack her
with Its talons.
The soil that had clung to tlie routs
of i'ie sapling mitigated the force of
tho blow, nnd thu eagle lay but partially stunned, beating its wings on the
ground, lis beady eyes glaring venom
and hale at Its assailant,
With more time now lo choose a
won pun, Stanford picked up a heavy,
rock and stepped forward lo dispatch

. en to her feet, stayed bis arm with
her lm nil.
"Don't," she suld, clinking hack het)
emotion; "lhe young birds haven't had
their dinner yet"
Stanford hurled the rock from blm
and, picking up Jeuntiette In his arms,
mnde n hasty retreat from the dangerous locality. As be felt the girl's
heart beating iignlnst ills own he decided lhat the "vacation episode" was
carrying hlni beyond his depth.
When he reached thu spot where
luncheon had been eaten he stopped
and looked down tit her. Her face wus
crimson, but she was smiling tit hlni.
"How strong ynu are," she whispered, "to tear Hint tree up bv ll.e
roots! And you curry me as easily as
It I were a child."
The temptation was too much for
Stanford. Ile simply couldn't help It
He bent his bead and kissed her.
"You belong to mel" he exclaimed
She hid her face on his shoulder, her

A Bath In Senegal Wat Something

dome years ago, when tlio capital ol
the French colony of Senegal was t
dull, unprogresslvo town where official
Ism and red tape prevailed, a Krcnco
traveler, with a friend, had a mosl
amusing experience when he wished
to obtain n bath. There wns no buth
Ing establishment lu tho cnpltnl ol
Senegal at tho time, but rumor had II
that it was possible to purchase batlu
at the hospital.
Accordingly the travelers repaired tt
tho hospital, where they stated thf
purpose of their visit
"Certainly," said the official, "tuk<

"Hut wo merely want a bnth."
"Exactly. What Is your name, ami

"It Is tho rule. Having examined

Or. Richard Mead's Action During the
Plague of 1721.
To Dr. Richard Mead, who was In
consultation nt tbo deathbed of Queen
Anne and became physician to George
I., was duo the credit ot baring first
established quarantine.
In 1721, when the plague ravaged
Marseilles and Its contagions origin
���wis discredited, Dr. Mead declared the
plague to be "a contagious distemper,"
snd a quarantine was enjoined. He
also proposed n system of medical police, which finds Its counterpart In tbe
health officers of today. It was be
who declared, "As pastiness ts a great
source of Infection, so cleanliness Is
tbe greatest preventative."
, Ho It was who said nearly 200 years
ago: "If there bo any Contagious Distemper In tbe Ship the Sound men
should leave their Cloaths, which
should be burnt, the men washed and
shaved and, having fresh Cloaths,
should stay In Lazaretto���that Is,
quarantine-thirty to forty days. The
reason for tbis ls because Persons may
be recovered from a Disease themselves and yet retain matter of Infection about them a considerable time."
In practice Mead was without a rival, his receipts averaging for several
years between {0,000 and ��7,000, an
enormous sum In relation to the value
of money at that period. He possessed
a rare taste for collecting. But his
books, his statues, his medals, were
not to amuse only his own leisure.
Tbe humble student the nnrecom-
mended foreigner, the poor Inquirer,
derived as much enjoyment from these
treasures as their owner. At bis table
might be seen the most eminent men
of the age. Popo was a ready guest
and the delicate poet was sure to be
regaled with his favorite dlsb of
Matthew Arnold and the Girls.
Of Matthew Arnold as a icbool examiner a tale ls told by a fellow inspector of a class of girl pupil teachers
that be asked Arnold to examine foi
blm. Arnold gave tbem all tbe excellent mark.
"But," said the other Inspector,
"surely tbey are not all as good as they
can be. Some must be better than others."
"Perhaps that ls so," replied Arnold.
"But tben, you see, they are all such
very nice girls."

Summer Whooping Cough.
In tho summer thero often comes an
epidemic of whooping cough. Mothei
noticcav that her child has a slight
hacking cough, which becomes mora
frequent and prolonged as the days
pass and which seems uot lo respond
lo o.o usual treatments for colds. Ths
paroxysms seem to glow more pronounced at night, and vomiting follows
a severe spell of coughing.
Well, It It Is whooping cough you

child In tho vicinity.
A child may have ninny severe cough

abdomen will lessen the elrnln ol
coughing and tend to prevent vomiting
In the early stages of Whooping
cough relief is given If the month b��
sprayed frequently during the day
with a mild antiseptic solution.
The whooping Is heard about Hire*
weeks after tho flret signs, nud it lastt
for about three weeks. Tho congl
may remain for somo time after thl

the cost of a loaf of bread to one-
quarter the present price. It is
claimed that the plan, if workable
will revolutionize the markets.
Williams asserts that he has discov-
evered a method of specially treating the soil he will use by electricity
and a secret solution which will
force growth.
The Daily News says that Williams proposes a factory of several
floors covered with sand and gravel
impregnated with a nitrate solution.
Wires and tubes will supply radiated electricitv affording heat and
light, and it is expected to harvest
six crops a year at a cost of a shilling a bushel.

A co-operative credit banking law j
applicable to all provinces, providing cleiir, plain and simple machinery for the incorporation of co-operative banks in each and every province of Canada, will be embodied
in a bill, which, it is understood,
is being drafted by the solicitor-gen
eral, and which will be introduced
at the next session of parliament.
The agriculturists of Canada have
been besieging the Dominion government in favour of co-operative
banks for the last ten years.
A bill providing for co-operative
institutions "for distribution was
introduced ten years ago, passed by
the house of commons, but was
killed in the senate.
It is estimated that the average
rate of interest paid on loans bv
Canadian farmers is about 8 per.
cent. The total amount borrowed
by the Canadian agrculturists totals
somewhere in the immediate vicinity
of $150,000,000.

Can't You Cut It Shorter ?
I have heard all night the doleful
Of the cow bereft of her young���
At the Indian grave I have heard
the song
By the ancient Kloocthmen lung;
I have heard the voice of the wandering wolf
Afar on the snowy  plain,
But for long drawn misery give to
The howl of the Courtenay train.
