I had taken dlnn ������ at Bellwood le-

chose to Ignore tlio fact. With superb
Indifference she would break into the

Margery Fleming made a brave pretense, hut left her plate almost untouched. As for me, 1 ate a substantial masculine meal and half apologized for my appetite, but Letltla
did not bear. She tore the board of
managers to shreds with the roast and
denounced t.heiu svith tbe salad.

whispered, J made the salad myself.

In some parts of the world, particularly in Germany, is is still believed
that the upsetting of ihe salt cellar

to avert any catastrophe which may
happen by tossing a llllle of the salt
over the shoulder is. due to ihe belief
that by so doing one blls the Invisible
Satan in the eye, which temporarily
at least, prevent.-- him doing further

Your Case  Isn't Likely to be Worse,

Nerviline
HERE IS THE PROOF
"Afler being an enthusiastic user of
Nerviline for years, I feel li my duty
to tell you personally what, your wonderful preparation bas done for me.
"I ll'ered torture fron. rheumatism
and heart (rouble, tried scores o�� so-
called remedies, consulted for weeks
and months with Toronto's most eminent, physicians, but derived only
slight benefit.
"A friend insisted on iny using N'er-
viline, and to my surprise a vigorous
rubbing of this powerful liniment
eased tile pains and reduced the st'ff-
ness in my joints. I continued to use
Nerviline and svas permanently cured. 1 am tow perfectly well, and
for three years have had no rheumatism at all. 1 k:'OW many families
where no other medicine but Nerviline
Is kept���Ir. is so useful in minor ailments like earache, toothache, neuralgia, coughs, cold.*, lumbago, and sciatica. 1 call Nerviline my 'Life

Letter to the Editor
Happy. Valley.
Dec. 3, 1913.
Editor Courtenay Reviesv,
Sir:���I see in your issue of the
27th a letter from Happy Valley,
which seems to me, if 1 hear aright,
speaks very favourably of Harvey
and his men, as workmen ou the
Government road. Sir, please
allow me sapce to offer my many,
many thanks to this gentleman
with so much courage who has
taken such desparate chances by
commending me on my work, I can
assure him I am highly elated, as I
so rarely get credit for anything in
Happy Valley, only as being a disturber of peace.
However, I might say Happy
Valley is not tbe only place that
commends me for my work. Mr.
Editor, tloes it ever appear strange
to you how simple some mysjerics
are solved, in regard to the Happy
Valley road previously mentioned,
the writer of tbe letter of the 27th,
in referring to the language of one
of the teamsters, says the air was
blue for yards around, now Sir,
there has been of late a very mysterious sulphurous odor around
the Valley which has seemed to
bring on very serious thought and
world end predictions, churches
over crowded and very sanctimonious faces packed around, oh well
the teamster solved the mjstery,
nough.
Now Mr. Editor, if my epistle is
not too long aud too .irritating
please allow me space for a few remarks on the way things have been
running during 1913. There certainly has been lots of criticism ou
the general management, I may
mention one thing in particular
which has seemed to gall the set
tiers this the miners who are on
strike in Cumberland have in opinion of many, been given the preference of work on the roads over the
tax payer. I am not doubting
their opinion, neither should we take
it as a great surprise,if the foremen
are selected from among them we
must not look for anything but a
backseat, as the saying goes "the
devil will look after his own," and
the strikers would be very foolish
if they did not look after their own.
However I know several who
were receiving) benefits from the
union in Cumberland all last winter
who were selected as foremen and
acted in that capacity all summer
until the money gave out and are
now receiving benefit from the
union again. However our annual
meeting is not far distant and I
hear there is going to be some
high kickers present. You may
hear from someone who is better
able to handle this question than
yours truly

Friday's storm was the most
severe for a number of years. Two
of the windows in Mr. Howard's
house at the wireless station were
blown iu.
The tide of Kye Bay was the
highest for years, and logs that had
been left high and dry and half
rotten for a long time were taken
out by the wash to be thrown up
once more upon some other part of
the coast.
A tired and weatherbeaten stork
took refuge in Friday's gale on the
roof of Mr. D. T. Cameron's house
and left his card in the form of a
fine baby girl.
Iij The Lord Bishop of Columbia
held service with the Rev. J. Lay-
cock in the hall above C. Pigott's

A meeting was held aftersvards to
discuss the prospects of having a
church established in this part of
Comox District. His lordship said
'hat provided some one svould give
the land required he svould guarantee the funds for a small church.
A scow and tug were set adrift
from Comox wharf iu Friday's
gale and were jambad together
under the short end of the wharf
the result being that several piles
were badly shaken aud the whole
more or less rendered unsafe.
On Wednesday the 2 8 th a reception was held iu the Comox hall
in honour of kis worship Dr. T.
Roper, Lord Bishop of   Columbia.
S. S. Charmer did not reach
Comox until Saturday at 4 a. m,

In spite of certain dismal prophecies, the parcels post system in the
United  States   appears to be an
assured success, and even a financial
help to tlie revenue.    The first six j
mouths of its operation shows a net
increase in  the  postal returns of
about $14,000,000.    This means a I
revenue of probably $30,000,000 a '
year,  with a possibility of much ]
greater returns in the near future, i
That is,  the   government of the
United States has,   or   will   have, !
about $30,000,000, in   its  coffers,!
and the people will have their   ex-
press business done at   a   cheaper -
rate than ever before.    The people
are better off, the   government   is
better off, and the only   complaint
will come from the   express  companies.    But the railways are  not
going to rest content with this state
of affairs, aud already   they   have
intimated that they   are   carrying
Uncle Sam's postage too   cheaply.
No doubt they svant that   $30,000
000, but their possibility of getting
it seems rather remote, and   while
the citizens of the   United   States
are enjoying the   benefits   of   the
parcels post,   Cauada   expects   to
share with them soon.   The Postmaster general is  now   conferring
with the heads of   the    Canadian
Railways  concerning the   matter
when arrangements will be made in
regard to the   inauguration   of   a
parcels post at the new vear.    What
will the   railwaymen say?   When
we consider that the parcels post
if efficient will cut into their express profits it is hardly to be expected that they will look  upon  it
with much favor.    In this country
it seems that the railways and express companies are practically tbe
same and this fact alone will  ac-
couut for the slowness of our government to adopt  a really uselul
parcels   post.    Add   to this   the
other fact that the retailers generally are very fearful that it will cut
their trade and it is small wonder
that the parcels post has been slow
in coming    However, it is surely
coming now and the new year svill
see its advent,
A despatch from Ottawa says
that everything is practically in
readiness for the bringing into force
of the parcels post. The post office
department has been engaged dur
ing the greater part of the summer
and fall gathering data and information upon which they could
work out a scheme that svould be
just and equitable to all concerned
and yet could be operated without
too great a deficit on the part of
the government,
The big matter to be decided
upon nosv is the rates. It is not
necessary to iutroduce a bill iu
Parliament to bring the parcels post
into effect. Last Parliament gave
the Postmaster-General the necessary power and all that is required
is a departmental order from him.
This order, it is  learned,   will   be
issued ou January 1. The rates
are expectid to be slightly higher
than those which prevail in the
United States.

The Pacific Coast during the
past week has been swept
with the worst gale in many years.
The steamship "President" which
left Victoria last Tuesday evening
for San Francisco lest four of her
cresv and the ' 'Joe Watson '' which
sailed from Seattle on Sunday to
San Francisco svas a day and a
half late in reaching that port.
One day at Victoria the gale was
blowing at over fifty miles an hour
and while the s'elocity had been excelled iu previous storms it broke all
recorbs for the year. Telegraphic
communication with the mainland was completely severed. Telephone and telegraph wires were
dowu almost evervsvhere ou the
southern portion of the Island.
The expansion of the militia in
British Columbia has been something phenomenal during the last
of tlie present year. East year
there were ten military units with
a total of 2,800 men. That number has nosv been increased to fourteen units with au authorized
strength of 5,400 men. Other
units are in force of formation and
still others have been recommended
to the authorities for sanction, By
next April there svill be twenty-two
units with a total of 7,500 men.
One foresees the triumph of the
potato, unforseen by William Cob-
bet, not so much as food, but as a
means of motion. Coal is giving
out; petrol is going up in price and
dosvn in production. The supply
of both is limited aud must come to
an cud, but there comes the cheer
that alcohol will be the motive
force of the future. Petrol aud
coal may give out but earth will
always grosv potatoes. Potatoes
can produce alcohol, and alcohol
can drive engines. In the potato
we seem to have discovered the
secret of perpetual motion.
The Islander says :
The autumn coursing season

if Josefa had nol hnd the Morris
tioso things might havo happened. The
Morris nose, understand, svas more
iti.tn a feature���rather a ball mark of
sorts throughout Rabuu county. Who
���TOff owned It svas held bound not only
10 follow It, but to keep It going in the
voclni lines marked oul by Groat-grand'
faber Morris, a gentleman whose spirit had been as high as bis nose.
Sho was not high spirited, But In
Mend meek and lowly in nilnd, as bo-
en WO her very iiuhIitiHo fortune. Het
mother, a born Morris, bad married
badly. Al least tbo family thought so
suit bad never scrupled to pay iliiil
poor Hilly Clayton never did but one
sensible thing���namely, dying before
he had 411II0 svasled bis Wlfo'S dowry.
She had brought Iiini land and money
-and tho laud remained, only a little
farm, lo lio sure, but big enough to
maintain tho widow and lief child.
It svould tako managing, of course,
but ibo Widow Clayton, sbe Hint wai
Anno Morris, was a born manager
That was exact truth. In proof take
the fact lhat. when .Tosofn svas eight
ten she bad been fairly educated, kepi
slways In wholesome comfort and bad
bad all along clothes quite as good an
any of her richer cousins,
What wonder then that Cousin Anne,
svho never svliined or asked for any-
tiling���advice least of all���svas well
liked and svbolly respected throughout
tlio sslmle family connection.
What wonder either tbat Cousin
Maria Dalton, also a born Morris, who,
having no children, svas a chronic join'
rr and daughter of whatever enine
slong, took a violent fancy to Josota.
Maria Dalton svas mighty pfoud'Of the
. Morris blood and doted especially upon
great-grandfather. Sbo bad a copy o[
his portrait over tbe mantel In bet
'front parlor aud had coated Lemuel
Morris, his eldest grandson, Into giving
ber bis commission in Ibo Continental
arm)'. That, too, of course, svas framed and Inmg tip iiosldo tlio portrait,
inevitably tbe next thing was to entertain her fellow daughters upou the
occasion svlien state chapters forefather, and thnt meant having Cousin
Anne and Josefa liolp in tbe entertain-
big. notwithstanding neither of tbem
iieloged to so much as ono chapter.
There were reasons, Mrs. Dalton was
rareffll fo explain to the visitors���
"otisln Anno svas the greatest home
bod , and Josefa, staying with her
Jtltlftllly. had no need of bolonglug.
���'Ves: Josefa Is going to bo mybeir-
���ss. 1 bellevo so iu blood," sbe confld-
��d to tbe lady president. Thnt person
pricked up her ears. Mrs. Dalton wns
rich, aud the lady president had a son,
i lawyer, just starting to practice In
the county town. Ho needed a wlfo
badly, especially one with expectations
mid family influence, and be was right
an tho spot, having come along with
the chapter, not only by svay of escort,
but as speaker of the occasion. He
had seized upon It as a chance to show
bis enthusiasm for local history. His
mother. Mrs. Mclvin, was inclined to
regard tbe fact In the light of a special
providence. She managed to speak
with blm quietly, a Ilttlo apart, before
he read his paper and was delighted to
hear him throw Into tbo reading solid
chunks of enthusiasm for Rabun county and Its glorious past.
Before tho assembly broke lie had
met Josefa and talked with her a good
half hour. Nest week be called on her
and tho next aud the next. Mrs. Dalton was early taken iuto bis confidence
and of course svas his svarm advocate,
"Ves. as you say. Josefa is a Morris
out and out, all but tbo name, aud wo'll
change tbat," sbe said, smiling at blm,
"And, remember, you aro going Into
. politics. F want you to bo senator at
tho very least. No matter how high
you go, Josefa '11 do you credit. But
don't, you fool yourself thinking you
ean get her just for asking. That ls
not tbe stay svith girls of tbo Morris
. blood. Court her like n man and don't
take 'N'o' If she gives It to you the first
time."
Jack Mclvin listened, yearning to grit
his teeth. He svas not the least bit in
love. Josefa was not pretty for ail sbo
was so fresh and wholesome, and he
craved beauty above everything. Besides, there was Amelia Ware, but ho
dared not let ��.imself (hinlc ot ber,
Since they could not marry be rncattf
(o marry tbis Josefa. I mado him
laugh only to think of ber saylug "No"
lo blm. How could she when sbe knew
nobody else snve n few awkward country fellows?
Imagine his slate of mind svlien Jo-
refa did say "No" tho first time, tbe
lecond, tho third nnd each time more
sud moro as though she meant it. Aft-
ft' Iho third rejection bo went to Mrs.
Unlton. She million n laugn or indulgent pride wha lie bad finished, but
said emphatically; "I don'l blame josoy
-not a til. You've got tlie liamo nf

yon deserve it i nm not saying, I'll gti

At fair time, svith Josefa still obdu>

doubts. Thus tbo three went together
In tbe Dalton barouche, and for the
best part of tho day Josefa svas banded
over to Mclvin. Just how she managed
It she never knew, but toward -t o'clock
she slipped away from bim and tu��t

ran until she camo to tbo farther side
of Ibo amphitheater. At tho foot o(
tbe stairsvny sho found herself stopped.

sunburned face with honest lil no eye9

spite of Its-sunburn.
Mrs. Dalton was off with a knot o(
tbo daughters. Mrs. Clayton stood rant
In contemplation of prlzo patchwork.
Each believed Josefa safe with the
other: also that Melvin svas a further
guard. Therefore tbey smiled affably
wheu tbe ringmaster'-shouted (bat
tbcro was a new feature, a wedding lu
tbo exhibit of Scrollsnw, Varnish &
Co., tho enterprising furnishing men.
A popular young couple had agreed ta
be married In tbo parlor arranged by
the firm, wbo meant to show tbelr appreciation by making the newly wed n
present of the suit. Mrs. Dalton said
to ber next neighbor: "Ob, I reckon It's
somebody from tbe back country. It
must be. Only bumpkins and limit
sweethearts still tolerate parlor suits."
Tho neighbor nodded, but added:
"Let's go and see. I come to fairs
mostly to see that sort of people. Tbey
nre sociological exhibits, you know-
better worth while than anything In
tho ring."
"Do you think sn? Tben let's hurry."
Mrs, Dalton agreed, but somehow In
spite of hurrying tbelr progress was
slow. They eame close enough at last
to bear without seeing. After tho benediction tho crowd drew its brentb,
aud women In It whispered: "Why, did
you ever'. Tbo girl looked radiant and
quite tbe lady.. And tbe fellow didn't
kiss her, although tbe squire bade blm
do It."
"Here they come!" said others, falling npart to make svay. Mrs. Clayton
had somehow met them. Melvin svas
across the svay, with Amelia Wnre, her
eyes downcast, clinging to bis arm.
Between tbem. bright eyed, head up,
walked Sir. nnd Mrs. Clayton Trigg.
Josefa went straight to her mother,
saylug demurely, but with tbe least
hard drnsvn breath: "We're going on a
Ilttlo trip, mother, but It svon't bo extravagant. The money for the pnrlof
suit���we sold It before we earned It���
will more than pay expenses. Von
stay with Aunt Ria, please, till we gel

"And then we're going to take care

Mrs. Dalton was too stunned to
speak, but Mrs. Clayton said composedly: "Well, Joe, f snpposo you bad to

Craie Fer Gambling Amsng tht
Fashionable Women of London.
A certain area oi fashionable Lon<
don is infested vtith gaming establish,
ments, some open fjom early afternoon
to early morning. Tn and around IM*
cadilly", St. -lames street. Saekville
street, Hyde Park corner and Sloans
street the rambling bells flourish.
Large turns frequently are expended
for suitable accommodation. In on*
Instance a young olfioer living near 6t,
James Palace was ab'.o to let bis flat
for $100 a. night for six weeks, he bim.
;eh" going to live at a hotel.
Wliila (hero is no suggestion of
cheating at these places, gradually the
capital of both winners ami losers is
absorbed by the "kittles" or percentage oi the "bouse." To Insure them-
selves against dishonored checks, the
proprietors of some gaming establishments have taken out money lenders'
licenses, and Instead of accepting a
rlieck in return for a loan, they nosv
��sk the borrower for n promissory
note payable in a fer days, Interest
it .five per cent, is charged, so no
suggestion of usury is made. In the-te
circumstances the'gaming act cannot
ba pleaded, and lha money lent Is
recovered svithout legal difficulty.
One case in point is thn;, of a man
occupying an important post In India.
Last Christmas lie sent his daughter
(1,260 tn 'liable her to buy tho trousseau for her approaching marriage.
Accompanied by ber sister, tba girl
came to London on a shopping expedition. On (lie way tbey called on a
cousin who took the two sisters to a
'csiauiant for lunch. And afterward
to a gambling establishment.
Within an hour the trousseau money
bad disappeared and a nolo for .$425,
signed by tho widowed sister, was iu
the hands of tho "house.'' The London 'cousin waa unable t:> help, so
there was nothing for it Lut to write
home. The mother sent ari angry letter and a check for $1,600, all she
could raise at her bank. A day or
two later the sisters returned home
and tearfully confessed thai tho $1,600
likesvtsc had gone in an attempt to
recover the first amount. The sveddiug
lias been postponed indefinitely,,
The svife of a member of Parliament
Is known to have squander d in card
playing three or four times the $2,000
her husband receives in return for his
services to his country. Sho has confessed to losing $7,250 since the end of
last year.
Another society woman is practically
destitute as a result of gambling and
has the brokers in her homo at th*
present time.
Women Make Good Showing.
In England, Norway and France
there are more women than men. In
America. Australia, New Zealand and
Canada there are more men than
women. At the time of the last Ilritish
census there svere 18.624.884 women io
tho country and only 17.445.Gfl3 men,
so that 1,179,270 women aro hardly
likely to get husbands���or ralher, let,
us say, the prevailing theory svould
have us belisve that women marry
from either a sense of duty or necessity, bat never from inclination. Tha
causes for the preponderance of one
sex over the other are still very obscure. That r.ew countries should attract men rather than women is
natural enough, hut sv'iiy should th?
proportions vary so markedly between
the different parts of old settled countries? For example, in Ka;t Sussex
it was found lhat there wero 1,251! women to every 1.000 men. In Monmouthshire there wero 009 women to
1,000 men. Another curious result of
the English census shows the disparities in the criminal proclivities of men
and women The prisons contained
only 130 women to es'ery 1.000 men,
svhilo in the reformatories the proportion was 278 to 1.000 and in the svork-
houses 055 to 1,000. On tho other
hand, in (lie lunatic nsyluni3 there
were 1,HO. women fro 1,000 men. while
in the inebriate ref-jmiatories and retreats there were only 301 men out of
1,357 inmates.

Moose in New Zealand.
Information given by a West Coast
settler to e Wellington (.New Zealand)
resident sisiitng the south in the s.s.

conform this belief.

circumference nt the thickest part, nnd
weighing 5 pounds. The tuber, which
was of the Beauty of Hebron variety,
in shape resembled a leal.
UNSTEADIED HIS NERVES.
Audacious Tost of e Marksman's Skill
In a Dud.
M. Colombey, In his history of dueling, tells nn anecdote of a certain
noted duelist of bis time.
Ono day this man, M. rv, was al
Desenue'a shooting gallery lu fails
watching tho pistol practice. There
was ono man who was shooting very
well nnd Dcsenne was threatened with
tbo loss of all his glass balls nnd
swinging dolls. Every shot svas greeted by tbo spectators with exclamations of admiration.
B. looked on for awhile, and finally,
In n calm voice, mado tbo remark, "He
could not do as well on tbo field."
Tho object of tbo slighting remark
turned around, and In a loud and
nngry tone cried: "Who tiro you to
say that? Would you llko to test tbe
truth ot your remark?"
"Willingly," replied tlio unrecognized
dentist as ho led tbo way out to a
secluded place. Afler taking tbelr respective positions, tlioy drew lots, and
It fell to B, to shoot last. He waited
In sllonce for his adversary's shot. The
man fired���and missed.
B. lowered Ida pistol, "What did
1 tell you?" bo said, with a smile.
Then, pulling his pistol In his pocket,
be walked assay whistling.

DAINTY TINY  NESTS.
Those of the Humming Bird Are About
the Size of a Walnut.
Tbo moat exquisitely dainty home
built by the bill and feet of birds Is
tbat of the ruby throated humming
bird. Wben completed it Is scarcely
larger tban an English walnut and Is
usually saddled on a small horizontal
limb of a tree or shrub frequently
many feet from the ground.
This dainty domicile is composed almost entirely of soft plant fibers, fragments of spiders' webs sometimes being uscd.jlcrhold tbem In shape. The
sides nre thickly studded svith bits of
lichen, and practiced indeed is tbo eye
of tbe man wbo can distinguish It from
n knot on the limb. Tbo eggs aro tbe
size of uiiinino pills.
Although tbe bumming bird's nest la
exceedingly frail, there appears to be
nothing on record to show that any
great numbers of tbem come to grief
during the summer rains. It is, hosv-
ever, not called upon for n long tenure
of occupancy. Within three weeks
after tho two little white eggs are laid
tho young base departed on their tiny
pinions.���Craftsman,
Cold, Heat and Humidity.
In hot svoatber less food Is needed;
(hero Is more blood in tho Internal
organs, tho skin nets moro and the
kidneys act less than Iu mild weather.
In cold weather moro food Is needed;
tbo skin acts less and the kidneys more.
Thero Is more deslro for active ex-
crclse.
Humidity reduces tbe actual heat of
tho air In summer, but Increases Its
oppressiveness and makes people lethargic and relaxed. Tbo perspiration
does not evaporate and tho pores get
clogged. In cold weather dry air leaves
the body free to retain or give np Its
natural beat according to Its needs,
but moist air brings about a leakage ot
bodily warmth that ls difficult to prevent. Clothes will not do It, and wind
Increases It. Thnt is wby sve feel
damp cold so much more than dry.���

Personal Remarks.
Tbe habit of making personal remarks grows upon people, and many
are surprised when informed that
there can bo no greater breach of
etlquelto.
In any place svhere a conversation
can bo overheard mischief bound repairing ls often douo by remarks concerning tbo personal Affaire of cither
tlie speaker or ber friends. Usually lc
is women that mako tbem remarks.
Men have to be moro careful, for the
roason Unit tbey may map tbo just
reward of a knockdowu from some one
overhearing,
Oftcr these remarks arc made from
an overwhelming souse of curiosity.
An incident folates n story of a very
young girl svho, attending a large reception, noticed a most peculiar looking woman standing near and as soon
aa conventional greetings svere ovei
eagerly Inquired of ber hostess, "Deai
Mrs. X., svho is tbat dreadful svo-
mau standing over there by the door';"
Imagine her horror when tke reply
came in cold tones, "Tbat ls tur
mother." Sho fled to a near friend to
tell her talo of woe and received tben
and there a lecture tbat lasted through
life on tho importance of keeping h5?
remarks confined to other things than
personal matters.
It Is bad taste, Which means a breath
of etiquette, to ask anything about
anybody In n crosvd, whether It be at
a reception, on tbo street, lu a public
conveyance or in auy case excepting
perhaps the name of a person.
Oftcr the very person for whom the
curiosity ls felt Is really of Importance*
In a way, may be a celebrity, eccentrto
In dress nnd bearing, so It Is svcll to
steer clear of personal remarks unless
In the nature of a compliment. The
woman svho Is invited to spend any
titno with friends will do well to remember tbls law, for It Is a law of
etiquette, before making any sort of
remark about one guest to another or
to her hostess about any guest present, Sbo may find herself in very deep
water and never be Invited again.
People aro prone to talk about peopbt,
not nbout things, and that ts why one
woman got tbe reputation of being
"the best talker about the weather"
ever heard. She bad found It a safe
topic and kept herself out of trouble
by using nil ber posvers to maka ll
ber one pet subject.
All In the Game.
"Harold, you mustn't eat all the peanuts, even If you nro pretending to
be a monkey. Ton must give sister
some."
"But, mother, I'm pretending she's
somo kind o' animal wot doesn't eat
neannts."-Mf��.
An Arab Honeymoon.
For seven days after tbo sveddiug
the Arab bride and bridegroom are
supposed not to leave their room. Tbe
bride tuny see none of her own family
and only tbe women folk of her husband, svho svttlt on her. Sho remains
In all her wedding finery and paint and
does absolutely nothing. Tho bridegroom generally slips out at night after tbroo days and sees u fesv friends
privately, but bo persistently bides
from his svlfc's family, nnd should bo
by accident meet Ids father-in-law before the seven days are over ho turns
his back and draws bis burnoose, ot
balk, over bis face. Tbls Is their view
of a honeymoon, and tbey grosv as
weary of it ns any European couple do
of tbelr enforced continental tour.���

Appropriate.
A Milwaukee man went to order s
wedding cako the other day.
"I'm getting married," be said, "and
I want a cake."
"Well, It's tbe latest thing," said the
salesgirl, "to bas-e wedding cakes In
harmony wltb the bridegroom's calling
or profession. Thus a Journalist has a
spice cake, a musician an oat cako, an
athleto a cup cake, a mau who loafs on
bis friends a sponge cake, and so forth
and so on. What Is your calling,
please?"
"J nm a pianist."
"Then, of course," said tho girl, "you'll
want a pound cake."���Exchange.
Irrepressible.
"Johnny, I'm afraid I'll have to whip
you," said tbo mother of an incorrigible youngster.
"All right, mamma," he replied. "And
after you svhlp me, may I have the

Our Courtesy.
"There ls nothing which so exalts
and graces a man ln tbe opinion ot
others ns his politeness and consideration for hla wife. Instead ot being,
as some unfortunately feel it, unmanly
and weak, It Is tbe highest type of
manliness, and to such service of love
and respect tho woman will Invariably
respond wltb all tbe tenderness and
affection of ber nature," says an authority on etiquette.
What n splendid thing it would be if
every married man would take that
paragraph Into bis heart and model bis
manner to bis wife upon Itt
One of tho awkward momenta ���
guest sometimes experiences ls being
a witness of a man's rudeness to his
wife. Sympathy for tbe woman, wrath
et tho man and Indignation on her
own behalf���for rudeness to bis wife
Indicates the man would be discourteous to all ssomen If be dared���make
ber contemptuous of oue so lacking ln
true manliness. Fault rinding about
food, criticism over small oversights,
Impatience over errors at cards���all
trivial matters lhat a man should regard as tbe accidents of tbo moment
and rlso above���make tbo spectator
wonder hosv tbo wife fares In thl.
privacy of home.
Such things wound and humiliate
the wife and lessen ber love. Ves,
they do. Uow can sbo believe in a
mnn's love svho will not regard ber
feelings in public nt lea si? Sho laughs
tbem off-it Is tbe only thing sbe can
do���or sbe passes them over In silence,
but sbo knows how oilier women regard them, nnd she knosvs her bus-
band's stock ls going below par in
their estimation, and that hurts hei
pride ln him.

THE SEASON
] Wild sweeps the dark southeaster by, in
I       torrents fall the rain,
I    The river overflows its banks and   Inundates the plain,
j Upon its  yellow   current   borne,   with
many a crash and groan,
Great logs, and ragged trunks of trees
torn from the roots, drive on
Tlie salmon leave the turbid   flood,   no
more their highway now,
And byways take   through   field   and
wood, where tiniest streamlets flow,
Though endless barriers block their course
they circumvent tlteni all,���
The log. the rock, the gravelley   bar,
the tumbling waterfall,
Mile after mile they leap and creep, nor
of returning think,
While water wets tlieir tails,   or   they
can find a drop to drink.
Tlie geese   in   solid  wedgelike   ranks,
well ordered south have passed,

The cheereful round  of fireside joys,

Who will, may seek the crowded town,

This quiet independent life is just the
