Amongst the girls who hail lived
part of llieir lives at Worthing-on-the-
Hill was a London girl who hail come
there for a year, she hail come to
occupy tlie place ot under-housemaid
at the Rectory. A friend of Barbara's
lather had recommended the girl to
tlie place, not that she was a good
servant, she was nothing of the sort,
hut for the sole reason that the girl
seemed honest and wanted change and
country air, also that she had the ele>
meats of what was good in her, and
it was a pity that her life should he
sacrificed to the hardships of a London career.
. So Kate .lessop had come to the
Rectory, hail spent one beautiful year
there, had got quite well again, and returned to London. She was now a
woman of about three or four-and-
twe.nty. She was stoutly built, with a
plain face. She had taken an enormous fancy to Barbara, she had loved
Barbara with a fervour that most glrli)
give to their lirst sweetheart. She had
lingered about passages just, lo see HV
lie Barbara pass by, if Barbara smile.l
at her. the whole day for Kate he
came filled witli brightness and sunshine; for Barbara's sake, she le.irut
her work fairly well, and Barbara, in
her turn, liked Kate, and was good to
It was more than a year now since
Kate had left Worthington-on-the-Hill,
hut during that, lime siie had written
occasional letters (o Barbara, who replied to them. It now, therefore, flashed through the girl's mind that Kate
was the one friend who might help
her In her present necessity, who
might give her advice, and even tell
her where she might find a suitable
lodging for a night or two, while she
was looking for employment; for the
five pounds which Barbara liad taken
on her journey tc London were already
considerably diminished by the expenses of ber railway fare to town

and houses and rushing men and
I rushing women, of bustle, of noise,
and of turmoil, Chesney street had
doubtless its ran Ilttlo niche. But
where, oh, wncre was it to be found!
Barbara ll teniiincd lo go out of the
cul-de-sac, where she had quieted her
healing heart, and ask a policeman lo
guide her to Cliesney street. She found
a tall policeman standing not far from
the Fleet street end of Chancery Lane.

face aud came at once to speak to
"Ves. miss," he said, "can 1 do anything for you?    What is it. miss?"
Barbara explained ber difficulties.
She wished to get. to Plimico; sbe did
not know where I'imiico was.
"Vou lake a 'bus to Victoria; It's
nulle easy. Here's one coining along
now. Tel] the conductor to put you
dowr. al Victoria Station, and thee

A minute Inter ahe had mounted on

course, and from thero was directed by
more than one policeman lo Chesney
street, it certainly was a low-down,
unattractive part of the world, it seemed to be behind all the respectable
streets. It seemed to be full of dirt
and squalor and misery. Barbara ob-
serbed the name at one end of the
street. It was written up in bold
characters: Cliesney slreet. Ves,
there could be no doubt about it. It
was here that Kate .lessop lived. Kate,
who had enjoyed her year in the
country, who had adored lier pretty
little bedroom, and the flowers which
Barbara gave her from time to time;
her country walks; her seat in church
on Sunday; Kate, who had sung so
joyfully with the other girls in the
choir; Kate, who had grown bonny and
almost good-looking by her life in the
healthy, pure air, by her consumption
of the excellent food which abounded
at the pleasant Rectory. Barbara gasped a little.
But No. 20a was not hard to find,
and presently tha girl stopped before
a dirty house with some broken steps
leading up to the front door. The door
was shut. The steps were extremely
dirty. They were also slippery with
the first cold mud of a London winter.
The windows were begrimed. There
were tattered curtains to one or two
and broken-down Venetian blinds to
Barbara very nearly turned away.
Kate must have mnde a mistake, or
she herself must have made a mistake.
There was surely some other Chesney
street where a girl who had lived for
a whole year at the rectory in Devonshire could find a home. But the address had burnt, itself into Barbara's
brain. She could not get away from
A couple of ragged-looking urchins
came up and stared at the neatly dressed girl.
"Wot be yer wantin', lydy?'1 said the
more impudent of the two.
"I want some one who may be living
In this house," said Barbara, in her
sweet voice.
"Then yer'r better ring," said the
smaller hoy. He and his mate were
both, as they afterwards expressed it,
attracted favorably by Barbara's face.
"I'll ring for yer, miss," said the,
bigger boy.
He ran up the steps and pulled vigorously at tho broken bell. The wire
was very loose, and the bell hiing
down; but a tinkling noise was heard
within, and presently a woman put a
frowsy head out of a basement window downstairs. The boy who had
rung the hell, said:
"Come along, and wait on the lydy
'ere.   Come this minute."
The woman wiped her hands on her
apron and a moment, later had opened
the doof for Barbara.
"Wot Is It?" siie said. "What be yer
wantin', miss?"
"I wish to know���I'm sorry to
trouble you," said Barbara, "and 1
don't suppose she is here after alii
but I used to know a girl called Kate
lessop. I've written lo lier sometimes,
and she gave me as her address, 20a,
Cliesney i.lreet."
"Well, miss, and whal. about her?"
"Do you happen lo know if���if���she
is here?" snld Barbara, her heart beating.
"Yus, miss; she be 'ere; but. not
now. she's out at the present moment; but ef you'll come in and wait���"
"Oh, I don't think I can," said Barbara. "I'll come back, though. What
time will she be in?"
"This is her early evenin' in," said
tlie woman she glansed at on. ot
tha boys, who no'.ded a> her. 'She'll
be in, miss, all things bein' suitable,
and no greater attractions offered, by
aboul eight o'clock tonight."
"Very well; I will come back then,"
said Barbara.
She turned and walked down the
street.   Tbe woman gazed after her.
"She's a lydy, she is. You get out o'
the way. you Ben--Bob, what are you
doing, idling yer time. Go and help
your mother to clean up and put
things strayght. I'm ashamed on the
pair of yen."
Tho boys laughed insolently. One
boy glanced at the other, who gavo a
knowing wink, and, without taking any
further notice of tlie woman who had
opened the door, they sped down the
street after Barbara- She turned
when she head their patting feet.
"Well," she slad, "what do you
"Maybe, miss, yer'd give us a cop
per each, seein' we're vurry cold
and 'ungry."
JHarbara felt ir, her pocket. She had
a few loose coppers. She gave one to
each boy. Tltey looked at the coins
and then at each other.
"Be yer cumin' back tonight,
"Yes, 1 think so," answered Barbara.
" 'Taint a nice street for a young
lad] to he in at night-fall," said the
bigger boy.
"That it alu''," remarked the youug-
"I'm  sorry,"  said  Barbara,    "but  1
must come back."
"Shall us meet yer at the corner
'ere on this vurry spot'.''' said the big
boy.    .
"Will you?" said Barbara.
"Thai ua will."
"Do," said tlie girl.
She nodded to Ihem, smiled faintly,
and walked away. She found a res-
laurant nor far oil' and entered. She
ordered some tea and buttered toast.
The tea was anything but good and
Ilie toast was not to her tasle; but she
knew she must ii. future give up hi
ing fastidious. She drank every drop
of the tea and ale all tho buttered
toast, and felt belter In consequence.
Then she glanced al her llllle watch
She must havo seme sort of lodging
for tlie night, and she could not sleep
in Chesney street. Her waffli lold her
that it was between live and six
o'clock, she ought lo look for a lodging somewhere near.
Sho did not know anything whatever
about London. A girl came up to clear
her tea things. Barbara looked into
her face. The .girl had a kindly expression.
"1 wonder," said Barbara.
"Yes. miss;  some more tea, miss
Certainly, miss."
"It Isn't _iat," said Barbara. "It's���
I am a country girl. Do you know of
some quite cheap, quite clean rooms
that I could take for a night or two?"
The" girl looked interested.
"To be sure now," she said. "There's
rooms, and quite decent rooms, too, In
Chesney street."
"Oh, no; not there," said Barbara.
The girl put on an offended air and
tossed her head.
"Just as you please, of course, miss.
I thought   you    said   cheap   rooms.
They're cheap In Chesney street, and
it's there I live, but it don't matter."

He Telia of Hia Sure Clew in a Chicken Guessing Match
At a dinner in a siiuiirbnn district,
where  all the kiu-sis were amateur
chicken raisers, after a discussion ot
the e88 problem the conversation turned to the best Breed of hens. Aft_
the good poll ts of Orpiii-tons, M.n-
orcaa, Leghorns aud others   hmi   all
been brought forth, the host snid:
"Well, the ultimate end ot every
chicken is the liot, and you can't tell
the difference when it is on the table.
Let's see ho'v many can tell what liiud
of a hen we have just eaten."
All agreed It was a very (.ood kind,
bill, there were many guesses us to the
breed. The only child at the table, a
twelve year old boy, was the one who
guessed correctly.
The hosi beamed on him and said,
I'Jluinile, how did you know II was a
Plymouth Rock?"
"Oh, that was easy,'' he replied.    "1

She Was No Easy Mark
Martha Is seven anil has shown more
than the ordinary childish aversion to
learning lessons, being washed and
having I'urls made smooth and shining
and less than the average delight lu
fairy tales. One day upon her return
from Sunday school she was Questioned as to wliyt she had learned from
her nice teacher tli is time. She cried
out with flashing eyes and an indignant toss of her pretty head, "Why,
mamma, my teacher told me today
that story about the children of Israel
walking across the Red Sea and not
getting theirsolves Wet one single bit,
and she es-pected me to believe it!"���

Advantage   of   Early  Training
A Chicago business man is the father of a youth of a most literal tendency. Last spring, when the father
left for Km ope, where he was to spend
the entire summer, he promised, the
lad that, if he were to attain a certain mark in his studies, his reward
would be a-continental trip with bis
Tlie prospect ot such a trip stimulating the lad to such a degree that he attained a mark even higher than that
set him by his parent. He cabled his
father the oue wjrd. "Yes."
It would seem, however, that the
pnter bad forgotten his offer, for, after
thinking over the message, he cabled
his son, "Yes, what?"
Then, in turn, the son was perplexed- Finally after due reflection he
cabled lo bis tather, "Yes, sir."���Detroit Free Press.

This was when Commodore Elliott had

It was found that the Russian ileet

Wonderful Cure

Dr. Chases^-
This Letter Tells the Story
Mrs. J. D. fainter, 38 Park Street, Amsterdam, N.Y., writes .-"When six
years of age my boy began to have fits. They came on in the night. He would
make strange noises, stiffen out, froth at mouth, face would twitch and sometimes turned purple.   After the fit he could not talk.
"The family physician said all he could do was to keep them down somewhat. The second physician pronounced trouble Jeffersonian epilepsy, but could
not cure him. He suffered for six years and before beginning the use of Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food had three fits in about five days. Our druggist recommended Dr. Chase's Nerve Food. He has taken seven boxes and has not had
the symptom of a fit since beginning this treatment five months ago. His color
has greatly improved; he is not nervous and irritable like he used to be, and we
consider his cure a most remarkable one."
Makes Puny Children Strong and Robust
Epilepsy is ��� form of nervous exnaustlon and
disappears when the vigor of the nervous system is
restored. Such symptoms as headache, dizziness,
ringing in the ears, irritability of temper and speckj
before the eyes give warning of danger ahead. It
may be paralysis, epilepsy or some other form of
nervous collapse. The warning tells you that such
restorative treatment as Dr. Chase's Nerve Food
is nccessar]* to revitalize the feeble, wasted nerve
cells, to fill the system with vigor and ward off
dangerous disease.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food Is so mild and gentle
in action and at the same time so powerful id' its
reconstructive Influence tbat it Is admirably suited
as a means of restoring pole, weak, nervous
children to health and vigor. Such ailments aa
Rlcketts and St. Vitus' Dance are overcome and
vitality Is so Increased that trouble from indigestion,
headaches and weak eyes disappear.
This food cure is a wonderful help during tha
growing period when physiological changes are
taking place and when school work is particularly

That si'lioino nf tho Canadian

points of its employees, wiih the Men
ol readoilug mure adequate Justice
to the inilividiial, i�� creating Interest;
on the his American systems, it
wus tlio origination ot Mr. Grant
Hull, general manager ol Uio west"
em lines, with about 40.0011 employees
under bin direction. Sir Thomas
Shaughiiessy, at tamtly tanquets lins,
before now, exprossed regrel that
good mi'ii might be overlooliod, notwithstanding the I'ni'i that the com-
pati) was on tlie koeu lookoul for
the men wiui were to como atlcr the
present oflloers.

mosl  iimli nlalilo i|nnlilU'ullniiH
Mr. Hall thon, uppolnts trustworthy
persons who shall no over Uio west-
oi*n kv_ tfin regularly, watch Uio men,
themselves unsuspected, and report,
nol tbelr bad, but their good qualities;
liow Ihey ilu lliolr work; how thoy
conserve Ilie Inlorest) ol the company!
how Ihey show tlmir zeal. If bud,
things mtiBl bo reported. Those
Ogalilsl whom the lihir.lt mark Is made
will havo a ihane i to be board before
judgttienl is londorcd. In Ihls way,
It is bolleved tho merits of tli_ men
will be more certainly discovered, and,
belug dlBcovored, promotion will follow upon thn discovery���whon lhat

This idea, Which Is even now lieliiR
luit Into effect. Is regarded by the
big American systems us nt onee novel and excellent. Tlm wonder ia Hint
it was not tried before. The.men who
aro at the elbow of tbo president or
ai the hcniis of departments ure. of
course, nolkeil and promoted, which
may be just enough; but those who
nre not scon, have not the Biimo
chance and yet Iliey might bo just
as capable as tlio more favored ones.
This has been felt to bo a grievance
from the beginning, but a grievance
which could not, apparently, be remedied. Mr. Hall has found a way.
lie brings each employee rloso by tho
reporl lie will receive respecting him.
Of course, lhe Investigation which tho
secret Inspector can rank, must nee
essarily be superficial; nevertheless
it will have value. They can see whero
there is courtesy, a willingness to
help; zeal for the service; and theso
enter into character.

The High Cost of Living
At the present time possibly no
other subject is receiving quite as
much attention in Canada as tills
oue. It will bo a surprise to most
readers to know that during the liscal
years which ended March lilst, 1013,
Canada paid $11,500.0.0 in duly on
food, and all of this largo sum is
virtually a direct lax on tho consumer.
In glancing over tlio list it is easy
to understand that Hie buying public
are themselves largely to blame In
many Instances, tor there are articles
of food produced in Canada tbat are
equal in every respect to those made
in nny country in the world.
In tbe baking powder line alone
there were 607,904 lbs. Imported into
Canada, and this mean:- the consumer paid In duty the enormous sum of
$117,000. There are no better goods i.'.
the world In this line than magic bak-',
ing powder, and il is nindo ln a
model sanitary up-to-date factory, and
can be procured in any first-class
store at one-half tbo price the Imported article sells for.
-neb articles as raisins, currants
and many other things, which do not
grow In Canada, or are not produced
here, bave of necessity to be imported, and tbo duly paid.
If 1hc consumer would devote a Utile thought and attention to this subject a large amount, of money could
and would be saved.���Canadian Home

"Awful pause."

An Author's Experience
 WITH ���
Shock and Overwork caused Nervous Breakdown-Never found anything
to compare with Dr. Chase's Nerve Food as a Restorative.
Miss Innes is widely known in New York, Toronto and other large centres as a
Teacher of Dressmaking and as author of the most complete work on this subject:
" Scientific Dressmaking and Millinery." This book has been ordered by the government for use in Woolen's Institutes throughout this province, and is being put into
practically all Public Libraries. The experience which' Miss Innes has had with Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food is told in such an interesting manner in her letter that we shall
quote it in full.
Miss I. Innes, 245 Huron St., Toronto,
writes:���"I have a strong constitution and
do not neglect the health as many do
whose strenuous lives of overwork lead
to breakdown of the nervous system.
Consequently when, on receipt of a telegram announcing the death of a brother
who was very dear to me, the nerves
failed me, I went to my doctor and bis
prescription acted beautifully and restored
the nervous system for a time. Again
in New York I felt the need of a tonic
and had the doctor's prescription filled
but to no avail, and just here I want to
emphasize the necessity of going to a
reliable'druggist who you know will use
only the best and purest drugs. I was
benefitted to some extent by trying a
prescription which is used extensively
by stock brokers on Wall Street, where
fortunes are made and lost in a day,
and the nerves give w_y under the
enormous strain.
This helped me but 1 am writing this letter to say that nothing I used could
for a moment be compared to Dr. Chase's Nerve-Food. This treatment restored my
exhausted nerves, gave me new vigor and energy, and banished the many distressing
���jnd disheartening symptoms which only nervous people will understand.
I know there are authors, journalists and business m_n with whom I come in
contact daily who should know about this great nerve restorative. 1 know there are
women in the home straining the last nerve to make the best use of the income in
these times of high prices and whose nerve cells have been sapped by worry and
anxiety until they live in misery and do hot understand the reason. It is because I
know this that I want to tell these nervous, worn out people about Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food. From my own experience I know just how they feel and just as certainly
know that Dr. Chase's Nerve Food will prove a wonderful blessing to them."

To the Editor:���The Minister of
Education wrote to a Comox supporter on Sept. nth. 1913, that
the Governor General s bronze
medals, ten of them, are giveu
annually to the town which shows
the best result in the Entrance
Cumberland city sent up ig
pupils to try this examination last
month. Suppose the whole 19 had
passed, aud that these 19 had got
over 1,000 marks apiece: yet Cumberland could not have got a medal
because a pass list of 21 pupils was
the lowest that got oue this year,
Only 32 passed at Nanaimo uut
of the 79 who tried, and the best
pupil got only 666 marks, yet that
pupil got a medal. There are 11
districts in the province whose best
pupils got over coo marks, yet
only 4 of these got a medal. There
are 467 pupils who got more marks
than Nan limo's best
The city of Finiie sent up 10
pupils 10 try and they all passed,

Health Rules
Some people are continually
harping on health rules, Others
seem to think such rules are all
bosh, and a Kood healthy disease
is desirable. Still others are rather
reckless and make an effort to enjoy life and run the risk of several
healthy diseases. One observer
advises the people to take their
choice of several courses. Thus
runs the menu: Drink water and
get typhoid fever." Drink milk and
get tuberculosis, Drink whiskey
and get the jimjams. Drink soup
and get fat, Eat meat and encourage cancer, apoplexy, and appendicitis- Eat oysters and absorb
typhoid gastric poison germs.
Eat vegetables and give the system
Asiatic thin-blooded weakness,
Eat dessert and die with paresis or
something else. Smoke cigarettes
aud die too soon. Drink coffee
fall into insomnia and nervous
prostration. Drink tea and get
weak heart. Drink wine aud Ret
gout. The majority of people
however, prefer to do most of these
things, and let the insurance companies take the risk.- Peterborough

Labour and Monopoly
Labour organizations can be
rendered unnecessary for the
protection of labour only through
abolition of monopoly of natural
opportuities. If that were done
there would be jobs open to all, and
laborers would get their entire
product without organization. As
long as monopaly of Nature's resources is allowed to exist laborers
will be driven to organize and to do
much that is unethical in self defence. These facts must be borne I
in mind in judging the labour'

The points of difference between

me as altogether ilogical-
Tlie Socialist members who are

have invariably pulled for the conservative party, this must prove
the measures brought ill by the
Conservatives me somewhat progressive- But we must not close
our eyes to the fact thai n critical
time confronts the Conservative
party is not only confronted with
the bitter hostility of the Socialist
party but other orgauizati ins who
have their missionaries out in every
industrial constituency in the province, preaching Conservatism
worn out that it ciimbereth the
ground and must be swept away
to make room for tlie Socialist or

some of the weak and timid Conservatives have been influenced by

The town of Hearst, in Ontario,
was rccenlh destroyed by a forest
fite, Several villages in New
Brunswick have been swept away
by forest fires this summer, During the past four summers at least
two dozen villages have suffered
through fires in Eastern Canada.
The prime cause of these fires is
neglect in protecting young timber
from lire. Since the burning- of
the Crows Nest Valley in 1908,
with the loss of hundreds of lives
and millions of dollars worth of
property, special care has been
paid throughout the Province of
Ilritish Columbia to the prevention
aud control of forest fires in young
timber as well as mature limber.
It has been found by experience
that a large proportion of the fires
which start in slash or young timber will, if allowed lo run, spread
to valuable timber or property, and
when beyond control des'.roy the
homes of settlers in the small villages now being built up throughout the Province and cause loss of
life. The protection ot the settlers
as well as of the timber, is not assure! unless all bush fires are kept
under conrrolduring the dry Sea-
Young timber growing on non-
agricultural lauds i.s au asset worth
protecting from lire. Nearly every
settler knows how rapidly young
timber grows lo pole and tie si/.e,
In most districts in British Columbia timber reaches commercial si/.e
in sixty cr eighty years. * Il requires no planting, grows without
care or expense and produces a
valuable crop which no -.- beautifies
the hills, protects the -watersheds,
and will in another generation support industries, These facts are
so well understood in British Columbia that the Forest Branch is
everywhere sceuring the co-operation of the resident in preventing
destructive fires in the young as
well as the old timber,

Although ibis business of raising
Hack foxes, Is by no means new,
having been carried OU In Prince Ed-
Ward Island for some twenty years, It
was not- until recently that men in
the western provinces became alive to
the prollls that exist ln this Industry.
The Influx of a large number if
buyers from Eastern Canada, and tho
United SiateB during the seasons of
1912 and 1913, however, started a
tioom. The great number of live
loses brought down from the north
during lhat time, and the huge sums
raid In many cases for these animals
when delivered to Athabasca Landing,
��nd Edmonton, instantly brought the
business wide publicity.
The boom reached its height during the spring and summer of 1913.
During the months from March to
September- of last year, over halt a
million dollars was invested ln fox
puppies, and grown animals of the
black and silver grey varieties. Most
of this was spent by buyers from
Eastern Canada, although William
H. Kane, representing the fox farm
cf that name at Ogden. Pennsylvania
took out animals to the value of
Following the wide publicity given
Hie various big deals, business men,
as well as fur buyers and traders. In
Northern Alberta turned their attentions to the business, and fox farming
Is now stepping into the ranks as a
very important Industry.
Ten companies, with a combined
capital approaching a million dollars, are now operating In the province. Ranches have been started ln
several districts in North and Central Alberta where conditions are
said to be Ideal for the rearing ot
these expensive little animals.
The enormous export of live black
foxes during the prst two years did
not, however, go unwatched by the
government- During the winter sitting of the prov.nclal house of Alberta a bill was passed prohibiting
the taking of the animals from April
to November. As the puppies are
whelped at the latter end of April,
and during the month of May, thU
law gives them sufficient time to
Flow large enough to avoid the digging out process, which, In the last
two years, has been so successfully
resorted to by tivppers.
Permits must be now secured from
the office of the provincial game
warden by people desiring to take
foxes during the close season.
It is now also illegal for any person to export live foxes beyond the
boundary of the province without
first obtaining a permit. The cost of
n permit ln respect t_ animals raised
on fur farms In the province Is $15,

Practical Conservation by the Water
Powers Branch
Tbe minister of Ihe Interior has
authorized the reservation ot all the
available Dominion lands contiguous
to the Grand Rapids of the Saskatchewan river, In the province of Manitoba, until such time us tbe superintendent of tbe Dominion water power
branch Is able ta make a di finite
statement respecting ihe lands actually required tor power purposes at this
point. During the summer ot 1913 an
extensive topographical survey of
ibis Important power silo was made
by the Dominion water power branch,
lo enable the eugineirs ot the government Interested In power and navigation to design a scheme ot power development which would realize the
best use of the power resources or tbe
river without any Impairment of future navigation, Tht bydrographio Investigations thai bnvo been Under way
for the last coup', ot years Show that
the river varies from L2HU second ft tl
at low water io about if.ii.iiim Becond
feet at flood time. While this variation Is very considerable regulation
can be provided tu make a power development at Grand Rapids a profitable undertaking. In any event, the
action of the engineers of the Dominion water power branch In having a
thorough survey made and in arranging for ri-orvatiou of the Dominion
land required for power shows lhat
conservation Is being carried out in
practice as well as In theory.
Barbers Come  High In Canada
The barber shops of Canada and the
United States are said to be as line aa
any In the world and to charge the
highest prices. Comparatively few
clticB of Europe use high revolving
chairs and many of these run their
barber shops In connection with me.Vs
furnishing stores.
In most European cities a hair cut
and a shampoo costs six cents, antl
In parts of London a Bhave costs four
cents. In some Italian cities one cent
Is charged for a sliave and two cents
for a hair cut, and In Turkey barbers
take their entire pay  in tips.
Many German barbers make wigs
and switches while waiting for customers and many French barbers
do ladles' hair dressing. Austrian barbers are compelled to serve apprenticeships for four years, on pay beginning
at 41 cents a week antl ending at $1.02
a week, before ihey can own their
Syrian barbers seat their customers In straight backed chairs before
tiny wall mirrors, and fix queer
shaped pans i.bout ���* their throats.
Then they rub or. with their lingers
lather made from cheap soap.
In India your barber calls at your
house and shaves you every morning
for $2 a month.
In China the barbers carry stools,
small tubs, razors and scissors about
the streets, stopping on tjie sidewalks to perform their work, just as
scissors grinders do In America.

Dominion   National   Park   May    Also
Be Located In the Cypress
In all probability ihe antelope park,
which Is to he located on the prairies,
will be down the river some twenty-
five miles from .Medicine Hat, and It
Is likely that a Dominion national
park Will be established at the Cypress hills, south of there.
Tlje location mentioned for the antelope park Is one which it ls understood appealed very strongly to Maxwell Graham of Ottawa, and Ernest
Thompson Seton, of New York, who
have been in that district seeking a
possible location for the park. Tho
visitors also Investigated conditions
at the Cypress hills, and It is said
they will recommend the location
there of a Dominion park in which
animal life of the prairie will be protected.
A Preliminary Trial  Expedition to be
Made to Norway to Test Rations and
Equipment Before  Leaving  For the
Antarctic Cont'nent.
With the thoroughness which    has
always  characterized   his work,   sir
Ernest Shiieklelon is about to make a
preliminary trial expedition under Arctic conditions In the glaciers of Norway. This will h for Ibe special purpose of testing lhe rations for his nip
across tlie Antarctic continent, which
he hopes to make in four and a half
months' time.
No parly ever started out, without
having food depots, lo make such a
distance as that ln a straight Hue, but
Sir Ernest and bis men have made
special preparations tor the attempt,
Thoy have, with the aid of the Royal
Army .Medical corps, evolved tho "perfect ration." It will average only
lbiriyllve ounces dally, as compared
with the three pounds or more consumed by the average man, but It is
believed it represents the highest nutritive value for polar travel.
Sir Kmcst will be accompanied by
five members of his staff whon he goes
to Norway to conduct experiments
wiih these rations and also teBt bis
tents and motor sleds.
The party will don polar kit. and
travel among the glaciers. While the
cold will not be as intense as in the
polar regions, the country will furnish
the same sort ot sudden blizzards as
are experienced in the Antarctic The
parly will test the effect and potency
of the rations In most detailed fashion.
Shackleton's new ship, the Endurance, has been almost completely fitted In Norway and will arrive at the
London docks ths month, it Is eighteen
feet longer than his last ship, Nimrod.
It- is a beautiful specimen of wooden
shipbuilding, and probably the last of
Its class that will be constructed, lis
whole keel Is made of solid oak five
and a half feet thick, and its sides are
two feet thick. It belongs to the bark-
entine class, has the latest triple expansion engines and will steam ten
knots an hour. It ls fitted to consume both oil and coal. When ln the
Ice oil will be substituted for coal,
which will mean economy if il, is delayed ln the pack, as the boilers can
be kept warm and full heat generated
quickly. When the oil has been used
the tanks will be filled with water ballast.
The dogs, which constitute an important, factor in the expedition, are a
cross between a wolf and a Scotch
stag hound, and, have been bred in
Northern Canada. The lightest of
them will turn the scales at eighty
pounds, whereas the heaviest dog with
tre last Shackleton expedition weighed forty-five pounds. They have been
selected by the experts of the Hudson Bay company and will be* under
the charge of one of the most'experienced drivers from Canada, who was
chosen by the commissioner of tho
Northwest Mounted Police.
The latest appointments to the expeditionary staff are Sir Philip Lee
Brocklehurst, who was with Shackle-
Ion In 1907 and 1909 and who made the
first ascent of Mount Erebus, and his
brother, I_cut. Courtney Brocklehurst,
of the Eleventh Hussars Hundreds
of applications for positions Wth the

Not Youngest Governor
A corrcspondent'of the Ottawa Free
Press points out that Prince Alexander of Teck, r.amed as the new governor-general lor Canada, is not the
youngest governor-general yet appointed in Canada, or, for that matter, in any other dominion. Although
one of the youngest, he is not the
youngest. The Marquis of Lome was
only 33 years of age when appointed
governor-general; the Earl of Elgin,
35; the Marquis of Lansdowne, 38;
Colonel Slmcoe, 39, and Poulette

Buying by Weight
Ohio housewives are assured of getting just what they pay for. The State
Agricultural commission will enforce the law requiring ihat all package of food must be marked with accurate net weights. Violators will be
prosecuted. The greatest abuse, state
officials say, is in the packing of lard.
A weight is stamped upon the can, but
it does not specify whether it is net
or gross. Retailers have endorsed
the law. They have written Commissioner Strode telling him that
sales of weight are far more satisfactory than measure. They declare
customers are better satisfied and
clerks save time.

New Calling Proves Attractive to
Persons of Education
For sonic years an Englishwoman
living in Paris has made a. capital living as a guide, and an advertisement
appeared ln a London daily paper recently in which aa English woman
"speaking live languages" offered io accompany visitors of her own sex
around London.
There should be, one would Imagine, a big demand for women guides
in London, but an official at. Thomas
Cook & Son's head office did not take
this view.
'We have a number of women
guides on our list " he said to a correspondent, "but we are very rarely asked for their services."
On the ether hand Ilie Women's International league orgawtzes trips
abroad conducted exclusively by women and women guides are always
available for visitors lo London. It Is
found that their services are greatly
appreciated, and mothers often ask
for women who car. meet their children In London or at seaports on their
journeys .o and f'_m school.
It ls obvious too that In shopping
expeditions a male guide is useless,
and there must be many foreign, American and colonial women now in
London who would be glad of the services of a capable woman with an
Intimate knowledge of the west end

English Woman Headed Expedition to
Cocos    Island,   Which    Meets With
Failure���Others    Are    Anxicus    ti
Take up the Quest
Maurice Eugene Gllraore, former
head ot ihe department of sanitation ot
the city of Panama, anil at present
manager of a large subdivision ou the
outskirts of that city, says thut while
nearly the whole world is now awake
to the fact tbat fortunes may be mado
iu Panama by good, hard work, there
are still a lot of fortune-hunters who
expect lo get their money by a much,
easier route. A short time ago ihe
latest expedition In search of tho pir-
ales' treasure on Cocos Island returned to Pans a confessing i'? failure.
A fe .' iiou. .mil doi.ars more :i money
and sev nil lives have be'n poured
inlo Ihe quest, and the tret sure rests
as secure from the hands of mod-rn
argonauts as It has been lor nearly
a century.
About three years ago an expedition organized by two English women,
whose object In searching for tbe treasure was to devote it to charity in
which they are Interested in London,
spent six weeks on Cocos, and camo
away confessing that their plans cad
gone wrong.
Mr. Mills encountered his adven-.ire
had finished there was not a man
rating himself as a fool for engagixg
in such an enterprise. Vet when he
bad finished there was not a man of
the dozen at the table with him but
would gladly have, enlisted his resources and strength in another trial
al ihe pirate's treasure. Fortunately,
they are all poor, and could not ruls*
the money among them to buy tto
treasure ship.
"The expedition left England, made
ihe Strait of Magellan, and then sai: .d
direct for Cocos Island, which lios at
Hie mouth of the Gulf ot Panama,
about 300 miles distant from the city.
At that time of the year the s'irf cine
high at Cocos, and it was Impossible
in land In the slips boats, so witli
much toil a raft was launched, and by
tbis means iho tools and provisioaa
were put ashore. The work extend*:ii
over tW3 months.
There are two well-known clues to
Cocos treasure���the first that to the
loot taken from Lima in 1818 by aa
English sailor named Thompson, and
thi' second that to the treasure sroieu
from Vera Cruz in 1821 by the Spanish pirate, Benito Bonlte t Little Bea
the Good!. It was during the civil
strife tbut followed the war f.r
liberation from Spain In 1821 tbat
Litile Ben and his cut-throats surprised the treasure house at Vera
Cruz In broad daylight and mail*
away with the gold and silver ca
pack mules.
Tbey crossed the whole of Mexico
and took to their ship,    which     .u��
failing for them in a cove ou the Pa-
He. The value of their bcoty is variously estimated at from $9,000 000 to
$29,000,000. Tbey. were not pursued;
and yet the first thought appears to
have been to hide teh loot. Ttey
made straight for the well known watering island of Cocos, and there, ic a
cave in the side of one ot the steep
cliffs that rise black and steep above
the water they hid their treasure.
Mr. Mills said that there had been
Feveral slides of earth and rock along
the cliff to which the bearings point,
and that If the cave and its treasure
were over there ihe is skeptical Just
now) it would take a vast amount of
excavation to reveal them- The labor
Involved vas too great for the resources of hi_ -Ompany, so the search
was abandoned.
The woman whi. headed the expedition of two years ago, and was a
member of this latest oue. is a matter-
of-fact sort o.' woman past 50 years.
"Our expedition failed,' she said,
"for the reason that so many others
have failed. We could not give sufficient lime to the search. 1 have the
clue. I know where ihe treasure lies,
and only work Is necessary to uncover
It. 1 am lot satisfied with the result.
1 shall return to London and organize
a in w company, and then try again '
King as a Landlord
The subject of housing Is now foremost In the mind of King George of
England, according to cable dispatches
says the Chicago Tribune. Tlie king
is lntereste din housing, however, not
as a ruler of a nation, but as a landlord. One of the many estates from
which his majesty derives his revenue
happens to be one of the worst slum_
in London.
The king proposes to raise the old
buildings in his slum holdings, wide,
the narrow streets, and construct in
their stead 'substantial, commodious
and comely dwellings." In these new
buildings he will give every attention,
it Is announced by the sanitary engineers carrying out his wishes, "to the
mainstays of domestic life."
Persia's Ruin Complete
The once world empire Persia is described as a land lhat has gone "completely to rack and ruin" by a German
army officer writing In the current
number of the official organ of the
General Staff lie says that the
country is pracUlally descried by al!
persons of either wealth or refinement
and that those Who ate left behind are
going into bankruptcy lu increasing
numbers from day to day.
Turkish Telephone Girls
�� It seems hard to believe that tf.o
telephone system Is a new thing in
The Anglo-French Telephone Company, which obtained a concession
from the Turkish government to Instill a telephone system in Con-
etantlnople some time ago, has completed the w-oi'k of laying about 'Jt,-
000 miles of wire, including eight
submarine cables The service opened with 4,000 subscribers.
The operators are all ratlve giris���
Greeks, Armenians, Jewish and ���
few Turkish. This is the first time
Turkish women have accepte*. work
in a public place. A school is maintained for teaching the girls the uses
of the exchange.
Government Organ Speaks
In  an  editorial concerning    Asiatl*
immigration, the London Daily Newt
says that opinion on the Pacific coast,
-md doubtless throughout Canada, is
is emphatic as    opinion    !n    South

would lower the st.udard of living and
