"The first noticeable benefit derived
from the change from coffee lo Postum
was the natural action of the kidneys and bowels. It two weeks my
heart action was greatly Improved

"Then I became less despondent,
and the desire t�� he active again
showed proof of renewed physical

"I am steadily gaining In physical

it up on account of coffee, but since

labor with less fatigue than ever before."

Hint the future will lie with tho big
boats. After all, Canada has only
. jnsl started. Tlie excellent result already achieved and tbo thousands ot
settlers laken year by year to the
Dominion arc only tbo promise ot
future growth. It is only the foundations which have been laid. That
tbey have been well laid is evident
from the fact that the. most potent
emigration agency to-day is not tho
highly equipped chain ot Government
offices, but the settlers themselves who
become successful in the Dominion.
It. is not many years ago that ordinary well informed people knew
nothing about Canada, and in the
country it was an unknown topic. It
is a simple fact to-day that in many
�����- eases the ordinary newspaper reader
hits a better knowledge of some phases
nf Canadian life than he has of somo
in his own country. He can talk with
knowledge of the methods and profits
nt Canadian apple growing, whereas
it is reasonably certain that he could
not with equal knowledge speak of
conditions in Kent. There is a rea-
son tor this, and it is this: There is
not an editor ot a newspaper or any
size in Great Britain who does not
receive every week ill the year a
number of items dealing with all
branches of Canadian life. These are
Btipplied by the Dominion and Provincial Governments' offices in Lon-
ilon, and tbey appear for the compelling reasoti that there is a. wide
demand���for information of this char,
actor. It is safe to say that no country is so well advertised ill this valuable way as Canada. A London news-
paper of nearly half a million circulation receives so many letters daily
asking for information on Canada that
*t lias decided to establish a Canadian
1 -plage, and is arranging to have enquiries answered hy a staff who can speak
with knowledge ot Canadian conditions. In tbe provinces and Scotland,
this has long since been a necessity,
but it is a new move for a big London journal.
The effect, of random newspaper
clippings is sometimes serious. Mr.
Lome S. Douglas, of Mcaford, recently read tl]e following in a weekly
journal;���- .
The difference  between (1)  a gardener;   (2)   a billiard  player;  (3)  a

q's.  and the fourth minds his keys .
and pews.
Whereat Mr. Douglas sat. down and
penned the following jingle:~

When a well-known man is sent
down from Cambridge, be is given a
"mock funeral." Recently, for instance, a popular member of Christ's
College was given one of the most
showy "funerals'' lie is ever likely to
have in his life I
f remember one of these funerals
because it was, up till then, the largest and most, extraordinary that, bad
ever taken place. A hearse had been
hired and the "corpse" sat on the
top of it in solitary glory. On his
bead was fixed a policeman's helmet
which be bad acquired in a former
rag, while as tbo hearse moved slowly down the Rtreet the "corpse" vigorously played tlie latest airs on the
In front of the hearse walked a
number of iindergrr luates dressed in
all sort of weird costumes, in skirls,
rowing "shorts" as boy scouts, policemen, Red Indian, nigger minstrels,
and so on. Each man iiad an instrument, of sonic kind witli which to
make a noise. Rattles, bones, trumpets, megaphones, whistles, and bells
served to make such "music" as bad
never been heard al a funeral before.
Behind tho hearse followed scores
of vehicles, which extended for nearly
a mile. Coster barrows, bicycles, old
four-wheelers, up-to-date motor-cars,
hansoms, and a milkman's cart,
crowded with "sorrowing relatives"
stretched away behind the. "corpse."
Pour undergraduates bad acquired a
cart horse from somewhere, and made
strenuous efforts to ride ;t all at once.
In this way was tho "corpse" escorted to the station to be seen off by
Vour average undergraduate makes
any excuse sufficient for a rag. I remember the year the "AU Blacks"
played Cambridge at Rugby. Though
the Varsity were defeated they were
not disheartened, and a gigantic rag
followed the  match.
Special police had been drafted into
the town, and the Market Square was
surrounded by mounted constables. I
have never seen a body of mounted
police scattered in quicker time than
on that night. Hundreds of undergraduates surrounded the square,
each armed with squibs. At a given
signal these were lighted and thrown
under the horses' ��� feet.
It was, of course, an exceedingly
dangerous thine to do, but at a time
like that your undergraduate doesn't
think about danger in the slightest.
That night we did a thousand pounds'
worth of damage in a couple ot limns.
Every available thing lhat, would
bum was burnt. Hundreds of feet ot
wooden pailings were torn _ up and
thrown on a huge fire. Next day,
"however, tlie University authorities issued a notice strting tbe amount of
the damage and asking the undergraduates to pay. The thousand
pounds was subscribed before nightfall.
Besides those times when tbo colleges combine to have a gigantic rag,
every college has its own rag time.
November 5th always sees half a dozen college rags, as does the night
when the annual "bumping" races i
are finished. i
On one such night the authorities
of one ot the colleges anticipated a
rag and patrolled the college grounds ,
ready to quiet it. Hour after hour
passed hy and nothing happened.
Eleven o'clock struck, twelve o'clock, :
and then one Hardly had the clock
finished chiming than the grounds
were picked out by a powerful search-
light, and the dons were shown prowl-
kg round to catch any unfortunate
The whole college, however, was on
the roofs! As the searchlight swept
the grounds there came the sound ot
"Rule, Britania," played on various
weird instruments". The dons procur-1
ed ladders, but squibs and crackers i
were showered down upon them, making their attempt to carry the roofs
Rock Cannon.
When the island of Malta was under ihe, rule of the Knights nf St. .lolm
they defended their fortifications with
cannon bored in the living rock. Each
one of these strange weapons contained an entire barrel nf powder, and as
it was not possible to vary the aim ol I
these cannon fifty were made ready,
facing various directions from which !
the enemy might approach.  When the i
fame, of these arms ot defence became
known to the world the idea was taken
np of transporting rocks to summits to :
serve the same purpose, but, it was
booh recognized to he impracticable,
and the cannon ot Malta, bored in ;
solid rock, have passed into history as
the  sole,  weapons  of  the kind  ever
Lonely Islands Fitted With Provisions
For Castaways of the  Future.
Tbat all expeditions, whether Arotlo
or otherwise, place food depots within roach in case of need is, of course,
well known, but few people arc award
tbat. there are certain rarely-visited
islands and desolate coasts where depots of provisions and necessities have
been placed for tho use of shipwrecked crews. The most extensive supplies
of tbis sort are those existing on some
of the lonely islands in the South Indian Ocean. South of the liner track
to Australia, via the (.'ape, lie Crozet
and  Kerguelen Islands,
In the jubilee year of Queen Victoria, a French warship placed in a
hut on one of the Crozet s a good stock
of food and necessities, Including two
spears and two hatchets. It is highly
probable that the hulk, it not all ot
these, stores, are still there, for the
warship in question found the provisions left by a British warship eight
years before absolutely Intact,
The handbooks furnished to all
British shipmasters indicate exactly
the   whereabouts   of   these   cached
stores, A seal hunter, who sought to
find the depot on Kerguelen Island.
wrote: "It was as easy as if wc had
a sign  post."
Tho Kerguelen depot was fitted out
by the French ship Eure, which, in
IS!).'), left "2.250 pounds of preserved
beef in boxes of tt pounds, 1,125
pounds of biscuits, 2(1 swanskin shirts,
20 pairs of woolen drawers, 20 woolen
blankets and 1 packets of matches."
Furthermore, great trouble was taken
to protect the stores from the weather.
The beef boxes were coated with
tar. as wore the iron-hooped barrels
containing the biscuits and clothes,
and the matches were in boxes painted over with  red lead.
On Amsterdam Island, farther
north, the English Board of Trade's
handbook notifies the fact that the
French supplies are in a cavern where
have also been left a cooking pot,
cots and dry wood. On this island
the stranded Crusoe will find, loo,
abundance of wild cabbage and celery
growing, and lobsters and fish are
On the west, coast of Tasmania tlicre
are some, very lonely districts. At
Rocky Point shipwrecked mariners
may find relict, stores, and, in order
to aid them to regain civilization
tracks have been made for their benefit., with -"iron index fingers every
quarter-mile, pointing in tho direction of the relief station." And, on s
river where fording is necessary, a
rati bas been left in readiness.
Similar provision exists on some of
the outlying islands of New Zealand,
and these are visited by a Government steamer once, or twice each year
in case castaways are needing rescue.

Pipes Never Went Out.
One of the oldest ot social clubs
ever established in London was tlie
Everlasting Club, limited in membership to otic hundred. The members
divided the day amongst them in such
a way that there were, always some
members present upon tbe club premises. The club house was burned
down at the time ot the Great Fire in
London, when the only remaining
member on the premises was nearly
burned to death because he had refused to leave before he had emptied
all the bottles on the table. The fire
for lighting the members' pipes was
never allowed to go out, an old woman being kept solely for the purpose ot attending to it. During tlie
fifty years of its existence the member's smoked titty tons of tobacco, and
drank .'10.000 butts of ale. 1.000 pipes of
port, and 200 barrels of brandy, be-'
sides other drinks.

The Training of a Sailor Prince.
Quite recently Prince Albert embarked- on a six months' trio to the
West. Indies on H.M.S. Cumberland.
Me is <.ne ot about sixty cadets who
are being trained under a scheme
whereby the Admiralty gives to naval
officers'a thorough grounding in the
work aboard a warship,
Prince Albert is being treated just
like the other cadets. He lias to turn
out of his hammock at six in the
morning, and his work during the
day will be divided between gunnery,
seamanship, and engineering. He
takes his turn in the stokehold, and
during his leisure hours is taught
bqxing, fencing, and gymnastics.
"Murdering" a Monkey.
"There are always other animals
vou must not kill on pain of suffering
yourself," says a writer. "A eupersti-
iion concerning animals that is deep
rooted in certain parts of the world
is that the killing of a monkey will
bring ill luck to the killer. Anglo-
Indians and others can give chapter
and verse toi many strange fatalities
that bave happened to unfortunate
persons who hi *e accidentally or willful Iv done the deed. To kill a mon-
kiv is horribly close, to murder, he is
fco embarrassirif.'s like a man."
$elence 8ay�� It Is Imperfect Because
Men Walks Upright.
According to the osteopathlst, you do
not bave a perfectly formed spinal column, for ho Is firmly convinced that
no person lu the world has a back that

particular curve, whose twenty-tour
bones are at equal distances apart, ot

The child's spine Is much nearer normal aud far straighter than the adult's,
-and tbe society woman wbo does no
work Is more likely to have a back
whose curve comes rearer tho Ideal
than the college athlete. The spines of
strong men, such as tho laborer or
pugilist, are most defective, for the
reason that constant pull aud strain
on the spiual column accentuate Its
weaknesses. The Igorrolcs, strong as
tbey are. have weaker and more crooked spines tbau civilized men.
The spines of lower animals are
stronger and more normal than oura
and consequently tire not so readily affected by disease. It mau had decided to walk on all fours his spine
might be just ns good as his cat's or
dog's. Spinal'trouble started when
our ancestors determined' to walk upright, aud even after untold centuries
It seems that tbe human spine bas not
thoroughly adjusted Itself to our method of going about. Spencer wrote:
"That all Important organ, the vertebral column, is as yet but Incompletely
adapted to the upright posture. Only
while the vigor Is considerable can
there be maintained without appreciable effort those muscular contractions
which produce the S like flexure and
bring the lumbar portion Into such a
position that the line of direction falls
within It."���New York Sun.

King Cobras and Mambas Are the
Worst of the Snake Tribe.
Tbo majority of snakes are not, as
most people suppose, aggressive in
their bnblts; but, like the British viper,
far more anxious to get out ot tho way
of tho human Intruder than Into it.
But there are a few famous, or Infamous, exceptions, and tho mamba���
one ot tbe largest ot the cobras and a
natlvo of Afrlcn-ls said If be the
most dnngerous reptile in tuo world.
It will fly at anything and auybody;
goes out of Its way to pick a quarrel
with every passerby and lias even been
known to come down from a tree
where It was resting, apparently fast
asleep, to try conclusions with a man
armed with a guu. The only snake
tbat nt all approaches tho mamba In
ferocity is the great king cobra or
hamadryad of the cast, which ls larger
than the mamba and generally quite as
ready to interfere Witli any living creature that comes within its ken. It has
been known to chase a man on horseback, and so fast can It travel tbat it
Is snld none but a swift footed animal
hns nny chance of escape.
Tbo poison of both these snakes ls so
powerful that, as some one once stated
In au examination paper on reptiles,
"even n scientist wben bitten by either
of these ferocious creatures ceases to
be Interested in the matter after the
space of a few minutes." Among the
Australian cobras, the pit vipers of
America nud the great west African
vipers, there are certain species that
prefer the offensive to the defensive
method, and In most cases It is tire aggressive varieties that carry tbe most
poisonous fangs.-T^iudon Globe.
Lead and the Teeth.
A tendency of the teeth and gums to
absorb lend has been observed by Viktor ninze. a German dentist, among
the workers in au accumulator factory. The teeth nil had much tartar,
and that scraped from the teeth of ono
mnn affected with anemia and other
symptoms of poisoning wns found by
analysis to contain about one-bnlf of 1
per cent of metallic load. Extracting
the seventeen teeth still retained by
this man, the metallic lead In the
crowns wns shown to be 0.038 per
cent and 0.033 per cent In the roots-
sufllclcnt to give continuous lend Intoxication. The tartar wus removed from
the teeth of the other workers, and
this was followed by marked Improvement In the condition of gums and general health.
The   Boer   Umbrella.
Umbrellas, tor some inscrutable reason, for the seasons in South .\fr.o��
are not so changeable as ours, ��r��
much used hy the Boers. In common
with our own views, the Boer believed that au umbrella gave a man an
air ot distinction, though the shaking specimens they curried, which reminded one very much ot SftittS
Gamp, would nut have been calculated to possess this attribute among 0*03
own countrymen. Where tttfiss umbrellas came from is one of the man?
unknown facts nf the olds-time republic, savs The Outfitter. Xbtj were
big and bulky, as a rule of alpaca.
and the catch was generally out el
order, but they were always to la
found in the guest room when the
"old man" was at home, and alway*
accompanied him in the spider wben
he journeyed into town on Saturday
They were rarely opened in public, because if tlie weather was wet the. Boer
* stayed at home. An umbrella is not
considered necessary mi horseback as
a rule, but the Boer, carried it here
just the same as be did when driving
in his spider, and olten used it as ���
whip to urge his steed on.
Prevents Splashing.
An invention which is long overdue
is a device to prevent the damage
and inconvenience caused to pedestrians by mud-splashes from motor-
buses aiid other vehicles. It would
seem, however, that this problem ha*
now been solved. An apparatus has
just been invented by Mr. Stuars Oswald which, it is claimed, will entirely abolish what has been a serious'nuisance since the advent of the
motor-bus. The invention, which was
recently tested by Scotland Yard and
an engineering inspector ol the Local
Government Board, consists of a
Hanged ritn, which can be fitta'd to
anv existing wheel, and a skirt attachment which is held at the base ol
th: wheel. In th*' tests the vehicle on
which the apparatus was fitted was
made to run into kerbs with great
force, but tlie skirt remained undamaged.

Saved a Lawrence Portrait.
After lyiiiK for nearly fortv years
stored away in the cellars ol the National Gallery a portrait by Sir
Thomas Lawrence which was black
with dirt has now been completely restored and has been bung in tlie vestibule. It is a life-size portrait ol Mrs.
Francis Robertson, the mother ol the
historian, and was presented to the
gallery in 1837. Some six months ago
Sir Charles Holroyd during a visit to
the cellars came across the picture
begrimed with dirt and so cracked
that it looked like a crocodile skin.
He called in Mr. Buttery, the famous
expert and restorer to the National
Gallery. Mr. Buttery thought lhat
something might be done, aud the picture was sent to his studio. It has
now emerged, as Sir Charles declared,
as fresh as the day it left the painter's hand.���London Graphic.

By Morice Gerard
The journalist wailed lor some niin
utes, during vhleh iho two men were
supplied with the staple article Ol the
place, i ml Jordan was just settling
himself down to his night's enjoyment
when in* tell n touch on his arm. Murgatroyd bad leanl mer to attract his
al'i ni ion.
I hat beesuess with you, said he In
an undertone. Jemmy looked both
unuo\ed and suspicious.
I   don'l   know  you.    Can't   It  wall?
I Know yon, Mr, .Ionian, and my
beesness will nol wait.
Jemmy niuliered an o.-.th.
Out with  it  then.       ���*"
ls thei'e no room in which we can
talk- -more private tbau these?
What   does   II   mean,  pal.    Swag?
It *weel be .worthy our while, Mr.
Jordan, beleet me. He epoUe with
the emphasis of deep undertone.
Jemmy pondered for a minute or
two; then be touched a bell In the
Wall, close above his head. The Janitor reappeared.
ls ilie fly-room empty?
Yes���no one been In It for some
.leniniy strode to the door. Murgatroyd following. Outside, the former said: I must blindfold you. I Bup-
po:ie It's all right by your being here,
but we don't lei spiders Into tbe fly-
room���if we know it.
.Murgatroyd had come to see tbls
matter out. and was not going to be
daunted by a trifle.
Very well, be said briefly, In tbe
same assumed lone. Jemmy bound
his scarf round Murgatroyd's eyes
and nig. It it had not. been for the
gloom of the passage he would assuredly have found out the Imposture���
and Die end might have been different.
He took his band and guided him
for some yards. Then he stopped and
Murgatroyd's quick ears detected a
click like the snapping of a lock. A
rush of cold air outside���the night
air of January���struck upon his face.
Jemmy look bis hand again, and they
went over a fledged court-yard apparently. Then there was another
pans? anil a second click.
They had passe;! in another minute
Into inside air again, but. unwafnied,
very different from that of the opium
Murgatroyd felt chilled���a chill of
the Marl rather than the body, although the two were obviously connected.
Jemmy struck a match; then he nu
did the searf. The room was lighted by a common candle, la a tin candlestick, which was spluttering in the
first enthusiasm of Ignition by tbe
match which lay smoking In the tray.
There was light, enough to show
thai the room was to all inteuls and
purposes a prison, with a barred window high up in the wall, a truckle
bed scantily covered with a blanket
and worn rug, a single rickety chair,
and a strong deal table. The door
which  had closed  behind them, was

so artfully concealed In the wall as '.o
be indistinguishable.
Jemmy was watching Murgatroyd
with keen little eyes, to note the Impression made by his new environment.
We'need a Jug ;)uite as inncli as tbe
police sometimes, he remarked facetiously,
Murgatroyd Instinctively placed bis
hand in the deep pocket of his coat
In which he had placed the revolver.
It was not there.
Jemmy simultaneously held up the
candle, which by this time was giving
a stronger and a steadier light. He
wished to mark the effect ol the discovery Murgatroyd had Just made, and
the result of tbe scrutiny elicited the
remark, which was a compliment coming from whence'it did���
You're a cool 'un, you are, to���be
Murgatroyd's answer was calmly to
divest himself of bis wig and beard.
Mr. Murgatroyd, as I'm a Hiving
sinner, ejaculated the astonished Jemmy. Well, you took me In, to be
There seems to be only dne chair
In your sitting-room, Mr. Jordan, so
perhaps we had better stand. I came
to see you.
Yes, and brought your toothpick
with you? I guessed that in the smoking room.
I did not bring It to oblige you.
Thanks. Mr. Jordan laughed a
little malicious laugh; then he asked
���What's your business with me? A
too long talk might provoke other people to ask questions���not so amiable
as me���and that might be awkward.
In the first place you were in St.
James's Park this afternoon!
Jordan's eyes flashed ominously.
That's a He! S'elo me bob, I've not
been so fur west this three week.
While there you picked up a lady's
watch, which she happened to lose,
went on the journalist quite calmly,
taking not the slightest notice of the
interruption. I want that watch
handed to me. I see you have it on
you. Anyway, the end of the chain
���which was broken���is just perceptible, sticking out of your waistcoat
Jordan had taken off his great-coat
before entering the smoke-room. He
now thrust in the incriminating bit of
chain with an oath.
I s'pose you know your life ain't
worth very much, wllh a bit like that
about you, down t' these parts. He
was nevertheless evidently somewhat
cowed by Murgatroyd's cool matter-
of-fact manner.
Don't bluster, It only wastes time.
Now I want that watch, and I'm willing t6 pay a fair price for it. That
Is not all. I want you too, Mr.
Jemmy Jordan.
I'm often wanted, chuckled tlie artful Jemmy, but not always at hqnie.
I want, you to take a little trip with
me Into the country.
With you! to���be���sure, ejaculated
the astonished Jemmy. You've not
taken up with our line now, 'ave you?
Perhaps! Anyway I want you; and
I'll make it worth your while to
That's business.
You will have to travel and pans
a' my sen ant. I dare say you have
done a bit cf valeting in your time.
You may lay that; I was a gem-
man's servant one time.
Murgatroyd did not speak for a minute or two; he was thinking.
���ufrSv XjeSSoi JnoX uo jnd JO^eg
Tho journalist took the advice. It
was lucky be did so, for In a moment
there was a click, and !ho mysterious
door opened. .le.nny whispered
something, which w.'.s apparently satisfactory to .he Incomer, a burly mnn
with a red. beery face; for the latter
disappeared again, Murgatroyd noting the spot where the spring of the
door was.     Jemmy chuckled.
You couldn't manage that. I'll let
you try directly. Thijwi ti-as once a
chap what tried at !t ihe best part of
the night; he knew he should tell no
tales iu the morning; but bless your
innocent face, he couldn't find It. And
Jemmy laughed again at the sinister
For the first time Murgatroyd began to repent of his errand; but be
had gone too far now to draw back.
I was wondering, he said, whnt
form ot oath would be binding on you,
which I could trust you to keep. Ile
spoke more distinctly than he had
hitherto done.
I generally keeps my word���when
I gives It. Mr. Murgatroyd. But I'll
swear by my mother's grave If yon
like, and I'd rattier die than break
Very well; swear lhat if I take you
wllh me. you will do only what I tell
yon, and no more. There is to be
no casula displacement of articles not
In   Immediate   use,   explained   Minga*
truyd euphemistically.
Before i swear I should like to know
tbe terms.
That's fair enough. I will give
you t-~> a day and pay all expenses,
and If we succeed In whal I am aim
ing at ynu shall have $2iiil iu addition,
Jordan's eves glistened,
I'm your man. he said. 1 suppose
It's this sort of job if we fall? ami he
expressively circled ills iliroat wltb
his index linger.
Murgatroyd laughed.
Nothing like so bad as that. You
are going lo do a good deed for once.
Jordan was Incredulous. The sum
named was excessive for good deeds.
I shall want you to meet me at Vr.a-
terloo at 10.45 a.m. The express
leaves at 11, Come dressed as a
gentleman's servant, you understand,
and as quietly as possible.
Jemmy nodded.
Now, how about that watch?
Well, I did happen to pick It up In
tbe grass, you understand; bnt I've
taken quite a fancy to It. It's a
pretty little thing, nnd Jemmy drew
It out of bis pocket, and gazed at it
like a weak parent on bis first-born.
Well, 1 suppose you must have It,
though It goes to my heart to part,
that it does���$100, and I throw In the
toothpick. The revolver appeared
out of another pocket.
I haven't got It. remarked Murgatroyd. Will a blank cheque filled
up do?
Oh, I trust you, answered Mr. Jordan magnanimously; we don't care
about paper. I'm a bit rusty about
the signature. Bring the shiners
along with you to-morrow.
(To be Continued)
Cared By Toning the Blood and
Strengthen'nj the Nerves
It Is the opinion of the best medical authorities, after long observation, that nervous diseases are more
common and more serious in the
spring than at any other time of the
year. Vital changes in the system,
after long winter months, may cause
much more trouble than the familiar
spring weakness and weariness from
which most people suffer as the result
of indoor life, In poorly ventilated and
often overheated buildings. Official
records prove that in April and May
neuralgia, St. Vitus dance, epilepsy
and other forms of nerve troubles are
at their worst, and that men, more
than any other time, a blood-making
nerve-restoring tonic Ij needea.
The antiquated custom of taking
purgatives in the spring ls useless,
for the system really needs strengthening, while purgatives only gallop
through the bowels, leaving you
weaker. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
are the best medicine, for they actually make the new, rich, red blood
that feeds the starved nerves, and
thus cure the many forms of nervous
disorders. They cure also such
other forms of spring troubles as
headaches, poor appetite, weakness
In the limbs, as well as remove unsightly pimples and eruptions. In fact
they unfailingly bring new health and
strength to weak, tired and depressed men, women and children.
Sold by all medicine dealers or by
mall at 50 cents a box or six boxes

Keeping the Body ta Repair
Nature intended that the body should do its own
repairing���and it would do so were it not for the

Nature didn't Intend that we should wear corsets, tight collars or

drink some of ths things that we do, nor lids io street oars when wa should walk.
Tha consequence Is that tha body when it gats out of order must look for outside help to mats the aseassary repairs.
