Men's Club for Cranbrook
Splendid Swimming Pool and Gymnasium with
all Modern Accessories  provided
At. a meeting of thr trustees of tho Methodist Ohuroh hold laBt Tuesday evening business was brought forward that will eventually have sort
(His import with the young men of our city. Many have heen the schemes
floated that were considered Inadequate for present dny requirements, but
the present scheme, ns can be seen from the above rough outlines will be
one that cannot help but satisfy nil   the needs for the winter months.
Tho trustees of the church have handed over to the Men's Club the
oldigymnasium together wltb a strip of laud 30x75 feet that nt present
is at the hack of the Methodist Church buildings,
Tho old gymnasium will bo entirely remodelled and enlarged making
tbe entire building when complete measure 80 feet hy 75 feot. nnd giving
a,clear floor space Ior the gymnasium room of 80X60 feet. A hardwood
floor will be laid and the whole room fitted up in every way with as modern and Up-to-date aopllancos as possible. On the same floor ns tbe
gymnasium nt the front nnd joining the main entrance to the building
will be a hallway on each side of which will lie nn npparatus room and
lounging room.
In tbe basement will he n magnificent BWlmming pool 20x40 feet also
furnace room nnd shower baths, etc., This, we believe alone, will ibe a
splendid addition to Oranbrook'a requirements.
Above all these nnd made so that slides can he moved to overlook the
gymnasium will be n well appointed library. This room will nlso bo used for general club purposes.
The entire building will he heated   with hot water.
To some the scheme looks too pood to be true, but we can assure
ovfr readers that the work of organizing and getting Into shape has heen
going on for some time and the building'and remodelling will he proceeded with at once. It ia the will of the trustees to have the work pushed
on as much as possible so that the building will .he ready for occupancy
in a very few weeks of this date.
A rough plan of building will he found on another page.

The clamoring demands of tho play
going public of tho country has forced owners and producers of "Madame
Sherry" to send on tour tho alternate New Amsterdam theatre Com-
- pany which, with Its companion organization has been playing to overflowing audiences at the New Amsterdam   theatre,   New   York, since the
ities are agreed that no such sensational musical comedy successes has
been scored by a native production
in the past twenty years. Karl
Hoschna is the composer of Madame
Sherry. The hook was furnished by
Otto Hauerhnch. Tu its original
French form tbe piece was a rage in
Paris, and an English version produced by George Edwards at the
Apollo Theatre, London, was the furore of an entire season. At present all New York is attending the
production which bids fair to remain
at thc New Amsterdam theatre, the
largest of the New York Broadway
playhouses, until the close of the
present season and perhaps longer.
The production is remarkable in
many ways. The New York newspapers acclaimed it as a memorable
advance in material and form over
any native predecessor.
Most of its airs are already current throughout the world, reports
to the publishers of the score averring thnt "Bv'ry Little Movement

well known legal firm of which he is
the head.
Mr. Lougheed arrived In Calgary in
18811, coming in on n hnnd car with
all his worldly possessions before tbo
C.P.It. was running into the young
town of Calgary, which was then locntod east, of the Elbow river. and
was on the. slto of what Is now
known as Enst Calgary. Hero tho
young lawyer set up his practice
renting the back half of tho first log
house on the townsite. Later on

Lethbridge, Alta.—The miners completed their convention today but
have absolutely nothing to make public. It is thought that the convention referred tbe whole siuiation
back to the executive tt* do as they
think best.
There is no doubt that something
will transpire in a few days to bring
about a settlement of tbe strike.
It is known that the international
executive is in favor of having a
settlement reached tts soon as possible, nnd for this express purpose Mr.
White came up to the scene.
It ls significant thut he left for Indianapolis today and before he left

The cleverest youngsters before the

and besides they have the distinction
of being the only juvenile organization of the kind in this country. The
company is composed of young ladies
of the sweet sixteen age, the oldest

they are the managers or thc btage

A special communication of cranbrook Lodge A.P. & A.M. wuh held

v-iand master 0. o. Jewell, of Jaf*
After the cerenuiiiloH of the evening
■.veto concluded, some seventy of the
brethren Hnt down at a banquet provided by membeVa of tho Cranbrook
"British Columbia is nt present the
cleanest fruit-growing country on
this continent; in fact, 1 may say, in
tho world. The province is absolutely free of codlin moth, the Snn Jose
scale, the fruit fly and many utbor
insects which tend to depreciate the
value of fruit."
Tbis is the emphatic declaration
made by Thos. Cunningham, inspector of fruit posts for the provincial
government, who Is in charge of tho
inspection of nursery stock nnd fruit
mported to the province. He is In
the Kootonay checking up the work
of the deputy inspectors, seeing that
the regulations are heing enforced
and for the purpose of inspecting a
new power sprayer r for use In this
hstrict. wblch hns Jitit boen installed
at Creston hy tho provincial government.
"The provincial government has
adopted a policy of placing these
[lower sprayers nt various points in
the province for demonstration purposes," said Mr. Cunningham at the
Hume. "Tho sprayer at Creston was
made to order by the Sparamotor
company of London, Ont., and thorough tests have proved It to be most
satisfactory. In fact, I was so well
ileased with it that I have telegraphed an order for a duplicate,
which wlll he placed nt Grand Forks.
"An expert is In charge of tho machinery at Creston and wlll make
trips with the outfit through the
Kootenay8, covering both the main
lake and thc west arm. The government has at present two of these
power sprayers In the Okanagan; two
on the Lower Fraser; one at Salmon
Arm, nnd one on Vancouver island.
Three more arc to ho obtained in
addition to the one ordered for
Grand Forks. They will be placed
n the Okanagan and on Vancouver
The experts in charge of these machines," continued Mr. Cunningham,
will teach the growers what sprays
to use nnd how and wben they should
be used. No charge will be mnde
but the growers will he expected to
supply the spraying material and a
man to hold the spraying rodB."
After making the statement that
British Columbia waa at present the
cleanest fruit growing cotutry in the
world, Mr. Cunningham continued :
"It will be worth fully twenty-five
per cent additional to thc value of
the fruit when this fact becomes generally known.
"The Australian market is ready
today to take one hundred thousand
boxes of British Columbia apples,
with the one proviso that they are
free of disease. That they are so
I can guarantee and it will not be
,evy long before this province ' will
be able to meet the requirements of
thc great Australian markets because tho production is increasing
vcry rapidly. Recently I signed cer-
tlflcates of inspection on twelve.shipments of apples iu tho okanagan
which were consigned to Australia.
"I spent some time in Creston,"
-mid Mr. Cunningham, "nnd I'am delighted with that place. In all my
experience I havo ne\er seen more
promising orchards or better fruit;
the apples are without blemish, superb in color, and in quality and texture all that could he dosired. I
was amazed at tho quantity of fruit
land available In tho district. There
must he from forty thousand to forty
five thousand acres and the land Ih
nf such fertility that It will not
quickly become exhausted.
" I waa a little disappointed to
nee so low pear trees planted because
the sol) Is peculiarly well adapted to
pear growing.   ■   Nelson News.

a defiant glance at tbe thin disapproving back of her alster, Miss Alvaretta marched out of tbo room.
Wben she had disappeared through
the aisles of leafless trees Mrs. Parsons turned around. "1 hope you're
not going to take any stock ln thai

"Mother, I'm going to have my

"I'll do the best I can by you, Elsie,
whichever way you happen to dream,"
sold Mrs. Parsons after a long pause.
"Thank you, mother," snld Elsie,
and then they talked of other matters
and Elsie's lovers were not mentioned
again that afternoon.
After supper there came a scratching

"Well, Elsie, wbat did you dream?"
she asked, with assumed lightness.
Elsie sat up ln bed and swept thl
fair hair back from ber dejected face,
"I dreamed of Jerome Barclay, mother," Bhe said heroically. "So I'll marry htm just as I said I would."
Mrs. Parsons advanced Into tbe room
and picked up a scrap of paper from

"Wbat did you do with tbe cake, Elsie?"
The girl stared snd tben slipped ber

drew forth a screwed up piece of paper. "Here lt ls—no—why, motber, I

A Reminder of tht Fearful Alpine
Tragedy of 1870.
A broken alpenstock bearing tbe
carved name "Dr, .1. Bean, Baltimore,"
bas, tbe London Chronicle says, Just
been found by a Chnmonix guide In
tbe Ice of the < J lacier des BoBsons,
wblcb "flows" down direct from tbe
summit of Mont Blanc to the valley
of Chumonlx. The lind recalls the
most terrible accident In Alpine history, when eleven climbers perished
on the summit of the Great Wblte
mountain ln violent snowstorms whlcb
lasted a week. In September, 1870,
the Rev. Q. McCorkiudale of Glasgow
and two Americans, Dr. J. Bean of
Baltimore and Mr. Unudnll, both elderly men with tittle experience of tbe
Alps, Bet out from Chnmonix with
eight guides nnd safely reached the
summit In doubtful weather. Hardly
bad the descent commenced wbeu tbe
snowstorm started, and not one of tbe
eleven climbers was Beeu ngnln nllve.
A strong force of guides some dnys
later found tbe bodies of live victims,
Including tbe clergyman and Dr.
Bean, but the otber six were never

owing to tbe discovery of tbe broken

their tomb of Ice for tbe last forty-

Dr. Wilty't Advict.
Children under ten years of aga
ahould not eat at tbt aame tlmt with
the adults.
If mothers knew tbt enormous advantage to be derived from sucb a
procedure they would welcome tbt
Idea. Children would then eat food
especially suited to children. Things
would be cooked, and they would bavt
before them Just wbut they sbould eat
As It Is tbey see the food before
tbem that is eaten by the grownup*
tnd tbey deinuud it, cr; for It, coax
for lt or cujole by uny other method
thnt the little one Ls heir to, and tbt
fond pnrent Is too often prone to aay,
"Ob, let him bave it ibis ouce." And
there you nre. You kuow the rest—
the little fevered brow, the colic paint,
But If with a bit of extra work tbt
little ones were permitted to have only
tbat which U recogulzed as good for
tbem their eyes would not be bigger
tban tbeir stomachs, to the resulting
good of all concerned.
Berries are very plentiful and are
very good food, ouly tbey ought not to
be served to children unless tbe seeds
are extracted. Tbut Is, they may be
cooked and the pulp and Juice only given to tbe children. Seeds nre Indigestible, and there ls a possibility tbat
they mny lodge in tbe appendix.
Tbe truth of the matter ls tbat all
foods nt this time of ibe year are nourishing If prepared property. The great
mistake mnde Is that we do not take
time to prepare them. Especially it
this bad for the child. Nine out of ten
children, perhaps, do not know how to
cbew their food properly. They swallow as soon as possible, and tbut
chunks of fresh food nre given to tht
digestive organs, which are unable to
cope with them. Especially Is tbla tbt
case with uncooked fruits.
I would put a ban on nearly all uncooked fruits for children. Tbey probably cause more trouble than anything else, and all on account of Improper mastication. But tf frulta are
cooked It It another matter. It la,
too, an easy mutter, for nature baa
Intended tbe summer season to be one
of vegetables and fruits, and It abould
be taken advantage of.
In regard to lufnuit I bare one
tblng to Bay tlrst, last and alwaya,
and tbat Is a strict diet of pure milk,
preferably mother's; tf not tbla, tbeo
tome bealtby animal's.
Milk for tbe babe Is the one great
food principle intended by nature,
and nothing cau take Ita place. But
especially lu the bot weatber great
care must be taken to guard lbe cleanly condition uuder wblcb tbis milk la
finally mude ready fur consumption.
Very often tbere Is a great mistake
in quitting the milk diet for children.
1 would suggest tbat under tbe age of
three years milk should be tbe chlJd'a
chief form of food.
A Standard of Colors.
Tbe call for International standards
of all kinds ts becoming every dny
more Insistent with the progressive
unification of tbe Industries of tbe
world. Tbe latest demand of this
kind Is for an International standard
of colors. Chemists, manufacturers of
dye stuffs and pigments nnd mnny
others would benefit by such n stnnd*
ard. It Is suggested that wben onct
tbe desired color scheme hns been de*
elded upon the best method of perpetuating tbe standards and rendering
them available for comparison everywhere would be by menns of colored
glasses wltb wblch a tintometer could
be constructed. A tentative Instrument of this kind, based on an arbitrary color scheme, bas been made.

Warning About Wishing Groins.
Wben preparing greens especially of

taken for granted since Invisible worms
are rery difficult to dislodge. After

find tbat more worms, stupefied by tbt

1 Every mother desires to set her lit
tie girl dressrd attractively. Sbt can
accomplish this by mnking tbeir frocks
herself or wllb the help of a seamstress. Materials can be bought for
such small price now that every young
miss should be provided with one or
two new dresses to begin tbe school
year and to carry her over to tbe winter season, when cloth frocks are needed.
One pretty little model la made of
pink dotted lawn trimmed with bands
of swlss eyelet Insertion. It la a one
piece model, closing at tbe left aide
and having a square neck. Tbe neck
la finished with a band of the Insertion, whlcb continues down tbe aldt
of tbe front, wbere tbe dress opens,
and la used for a belt and cuffs.
An embroidered gultnpe wltb long
sleeves Is worn wltb lt If desired. Another frock of blue and green plaid
has a plain blue gingham yoke cot
square and trimmed wltb rows ot
wblte cotton soutache brnld. Cuffs and
a belt are the same. The material la
laid tn three Ims plaits In front and
also ln the back, wblcb fall straight
to tbe hem. The sleeves are short
and slightly full, giving plenty of play
for the little arms.
A frock of blue and wblte polka dotted percale has a shaped bib yoke of
plain blue, wblcb extends over the
shoulders nnd ts edged about wltb two
rows of wblte linen braid. Deep shaped cuffs trim tbe long full sleeves. Tbe
hem of tbe skirt Is formed wltb a five
Inch band of plain blue wltb tbe top
edged wltb braid. The bodice lt qultt
plainly cut nnd Joins the box plaited
skirt with a narrow belt of braid trimmed blue. A shallow gutmpe having a
hlgb collar Is worn wltb tbis dainty
and sensible frock.

a railing. When very heavy carriages
go across these bridges they stnlc a

chains and anchors lu different ports

where the channel lies they are so
contrived thnt a piece can be removed

declined to ease tbe tension by tbe
customary bribe und complained to the
British foreign office.
"The duty waa returned, but tbe
captain was warned to be very careful
about contraband, and for several voyages nothing occurred. Several months
later some slight Inaccuracy ln the
ship's pit|iers and the declaration of

and tbe vessel wus not uHoned to

to the .original propeller duty, waa

Tbt   Averags   Child    Is   Killed   With
No doubt ten children suffer from
ueglect In tbeir upbringing where oue
suffers from too much attention. A
great den! Is said aboul tbe ten neglected ones. There are institutions
and hospitals nud organized charities
to cure for them. But lt never occurs
to uny one to enter a protest on behalf of the child wbo is killed with
kindness, ibuiigb the killing process is
Just us fatal in oue cuse as iu the
other und the victim Just us deterring
uf coiuiniseralion.
Oue wouldut expect much from a
little plant thut was pulled up by the
roots every day to see how it was
growing, und yet that le pretty much
the way some women wutch and lend
fhelr children. They are never out of
Ihe range of tbe watchful mother eye
and uever out of Hearing of that admonishing volet which aays, "Now.
do be careful."
It Is pretty well for a mother tc
know about u child's pluy as well us
his eating und sleeping, wbut his companions ure llks ami wbut kind of
games he plays; but, aside from that,
there Is such a thing as an overdose
of watchfulness,
11 prububly never occurs to such a
mother that she is actually harming
her child Iiy her continued wutchful-
neasi but the truth Is Ibat ahe Is mnking hlin self conscious and lacking In
assurance anil developing In him a
sort of repression and timidity whlcb .
are positively harmful to him, both
physically and mentally.
Tbe devotion of modern mothers
comes In for u word ot criticism ln a
recent Issue ot Harper's Bazar. The
tollowing dialogue Illustrates tbe case
In point:
"Iteggle, where are you?"
"Just here."
"What are you doing?"
"Now, Reggie, don't try to deceive
me. Tell uie this tuluute what are you
"Nothing, mother; just playing with
my blocks."
"Well, be careful."
"I'm being It."
And lt seeu.s tbat Ibis boy was frail.
Suppose you had to live through dayi
ot that sort ot thing, wouldn't you be
rather trull?
The verdict of Ihe doctor wbo was
called ln to prescribe for this frail
boy was "too much watching."
"Let him alone,' lie suld. "There Is
a sort of psychological influence wblcb
la bard to explain that works on the
child wbo is always watched und
wblcb takes tbe Iile out of blm." And
the doctor Is quoted as Buying further:
"Tbe care you tuke of the child It
nine parts selllsh. You are really less
concerned about blm than you are
about yourself. You don't want to
bare to worry about something tbat '
muy happen lo him. That la what ls
frightening you."
'The doctor's analysis of the mother's
concern seems a little harsh, but It
docs suggest thut u more truly unselfish spirit would he oue which would
risk a few tumbles and bruises and
even a broken bone or two rather tban
to worry and harass ber small son luto

If you accidentally spill Ice cream on

Charlotte Granville Wants
to Try For the Lahm Cup.
Miss Charlotte Grnnrllle. a young
Englishwoman who has made fifty or
more balloon ascensions, wants to test
ber skill and endurance against Iha
same qualities possessed by American
men. In other words, she wants to
try for the cups offered for long distance flights In pus hags.
Miss Granville Is duly licensed as a
pilot aud is a member of the Hoyal
Aero Club of England. She can't take
part In the .lames; Gordon Bennett race
because the entries for thai contest
must be made by a club, but she ls
eager Io make a flight In competition
witb Messrs. llawley and I'ost, wbo
won Ibe cup last year and established
a world's record when they (lew from
St. Louis Into the wilds ot Canada.
Ballooning possesses a great fascination nfter oue trios the sport, Miss
Granville says, nnd she Is surprised
that more American women buve not
tried IL She dues not regard tbe danger as being greater than ihat taken
daily by occupants of uiitutnoltlles.
Tbe delights of sailing through tbe air
she describes as much greater tban
tbose of bouncing over a country road
ln a touring cur.

A Change Over.
It is many years since there existed a Federal Government whose majority in the House of Commons wa,
io small thut its existence was in
danger when the division bells rang;
and only once since Confederation
has a Government gone out of oflice
because of the hostility of want of
confidence of a House then in session.
And on that occasion the Government, anticipating the result of a division, took thc hint, and resigned
before a vote could be taken. That
was in the autumn of 1873, when the
debate on the Pucific Scandal was in
progress. Like Duvie Crockett's coon,
the Government "came down" before
it could he fired at. The resignation
of the Ministry was announced while
the House wns sitting, and with a
rush and scramble the parties at once
exchanged sides, and so carried out
literally the oft-repeated expression
■bout crossing the floor of the House.

Terrible Eczema for 25 Years
Cured by Cuticura Remedies
"I have heen treated by doctori for twenty-five yean for a bad
rate of eczema on my leg. They did their beat, bu. failed to cure It.
My own doctor had advised me lo have my leg cut off, but I said
t would try the Cuticura Remedies first. He said, 'try them i!
you like but 1 do not think (hey will do any good.' At this time
my leg was peeled from the knee down, my foot was like a met a
of raw flesh and I had to walk on crutches. 1 bought a cake of
Cuticura Soap, a box of Cuticura Ointment and a bottle of Cull-
Tura Resolvent. After the first two treatments the swelling went
down and In two months' use of the Cuticura Remedies mv leg
was cured and the new skin grown on. The doctor could not
believe his own eyes when he saw that Cuticura had cured me
and said that he would use Cuticura for his own patients. Out
for the Cuticura Remedies I might have tost my life. I am truly
grateful for the wonderful cure that Cuticurn wrought. 1 hava

Coronation Carpet.
Scotland is having the honor oi making the carpets which will cover the
Hoor of Westminster Abbey tor the
coronution, and the looms uf u great
carpet factory at Glasgow are busily
engaged upon the Important task. The
tloor covering has fruiu earliest times
been a specific feature in the preparations lur the atateiy ceremony, and
in the Liber KealU prepared for'Richard II. a copy of which is in tlie safekeeping of the Deans of Westminster,
there is a definite order as to tiie "Kay
cloth or Burrel" to be placed under
Uie King's feet as he goeth." At all
the later coronations the carpet has
been of a rich and beautiful character, with as lustrous a surface as possible, and from the quantities needed
in Uie more recent times it is one of
the tirst requirements to be set in
hand. The new carpet will follow very
closely upon the lines of that ordered
for King Edward's crowning. Then
as now the color was a singularly
soft, rich blue. The design was symbolical aiid embedded tlle badge and
motto of the Order of the Garter and
the Tudor rose, with the thistle, shamrock, and lotus connected with festoons of bay leaves and ribbons.
The.se were effectively shown in a
rather lighter shade of color and thc
whole formed an admirable background to the magnificence of the
state robes, the ecclesiastical vestments, the crimson of Uie peeresses'
dresses, and Uie military and diplomatic uniforms.
The Shadchan.
East of Aldgate, in London's Ghetto, where the descendants oi Pharaoh's brickmakers dwell, is where the
Shadchan — the Jewish matrimonial
agent — is to be found.
The name denotes a "bringing together," and it is the Shadchan whu
initiates the whole affair. He says to
a young man, "You ought to marry.
Now, I know the very girl. Her beauty— ah !—and her dowry—h'm!" The
Shadchan'i fee, you see, is generally
calculated upon uie dowry.
This strange, decaying occupation is
an ancient one. Hebrew literature of
the thirteenth and fourteenth century
refers to the Shadchan and his legal
claim to remuneration, which was always higher when the couple lived
more than ten miles apart. Perhaps
the extra fee was for shoe-leather.
Amongst old-fas itucd Jews, the
world over, marriage-Tare st.ll brought
about by the Shadchan, who has figured as a witness in a .breach of promise case before now, when the
charms or tlie dowry, or both, have
proved illusory, or exaggerated.

Thore lias been a decided recession
in thc various markets fur consumable commodities in the United
Suites since a year ngo, when tlie
great body of consumers in different
parts of tlie republic protested against
the high cost of living in the form
of anti-ment-eating leagues and by
many petitions to tlie government at
Washington. The Pioneer Press, of
St. Paul, Minnesota, recently published the following table which shows

The above statement combined with
the recent prediction uf Mr. Patrick
Cudahy, foremost uf United States
packers, that 4-cent hogs would be
the next sensation at Chicago, seems
to point quite plainly to an era of
low prices across the line for everything that the farmer produces. Reciprocity with the United States according to these facts would only let
the Canadian farmer into a country
where trade is demoralized and markets are falling.

Strain and Exposure Brought on
Troubles That Caused Five Years
Suffering, but Dodd's Kidney Pills
Fixed Him Up.
Clam Bank Cove, Bay St. George,
Nfld. (Special).—Among tbe fishermen here Dodd's Kidney Pills are
making a name for themselves as a
remedy for those ills tbat the cold
and exposure bring to these hardy
people. Tbe kidneys are always first
to feel the effects uf continued strain
on the body, and as Dodd's Kidney
Pills always cure the Kidneys they
are gaining a wonderful popularity.
An example is the case of Mr. J.
C. Green.
"My trouble," Mr. Green states,
"was caused by strain and cold.
For five years 1 suffered from Rheumatism and Lumbago. 1 was always
tired and nervous. My sleep was
broken and unfreshing and the pains
of neuralgia added to my distress.
"1 was in very bad shape indeed
when I started to use Dodd's Kidney I'ills, hut I am thankful to say
that they gave me relief. It is because I found in them a cure that
1 recommend Dodd's Kidney Pills
to my friends." *
Others here give the same experience. They were racked with pain
and feeling that life generally was a
burden. Dodd's Kidney Pills made
uew men and women of them.

The well baby is a happy baby—
alwuys ceoing, gurgling and euniling.
It is only the sickly baby who is
cross, fretful nnd cries. The smile
or tbe tears indicate baby's state of
health. Mothers, if yuu want your
baby to smile—tbe smile of good
health and freedom from pain—give j
him Baby's Own Tablets. They never
fail to turn the tear into a smile.
Concerning them Mrs. James Hut-
cheson, Marysville, IJ. C., writes:—
"Your Baby's Own Tablets have been
a great comfort to me while baby was
teething. He was cross and fretful
hut as soon as I begun giving him
the Tablets the effect wns wonderful.
He became a good natured baby
right awuy uud is now big, fat and
healthy. The Tablets are sold by
medicine dealers or by mail at 25
cents a box from Tbe Dr. Williams'
Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

James  Wilson,  Secretary  of  Agriculture at Washington, Writes
on Reciprocity
Mr. Jamea Wilson, secretary of
agriculture for the United States, in
a recent article on reciprocity suys:
"Hulf a century ago the American
farmer had no home markets in
which tu sell his surplus crops. He
arranged fur a home market by protecting ull diversified industries.
Tbis brought the home market, tbe
best in tho world. Population has
outgrown  production  from  the  farm
Mr. Androwo praises Dr.
Moroe'o Indian Root Pills.
Mr. George Andrews of Halifax, N.S.,
'"For many years I have been troubled
with chronic Constipation. This ailment never comes single-handed, and I
have been a victim to the many 'llnesses
that cunslipation brings in its train.
Medicine utter mediOiue I have taken ia
order to find relief, but one and all left
me in the same hopeless condition, It
Itemed that nothing would expel from
me the one ailment that caused so much
trouble, yet at last I read about these
Indian Root Pills.
That was indeed a lucky day for me,
for I was so impressed with the statements made tiiat I determined to
give them a fair trial.
They have regulated my stomach and
btweU. I am cured of constipation, and
I claim they have no equal as a medicine."
Por over half a century Dr. Morse's
Indian Root Pills hnve been curing constipation and clogged, inactive kidneys,
with alt the ailments which result from
them. They cleanse the whole system
and purify the blood. Sold everywhere

best to be found anywhere, because
our people all live well und are ull

thut is, all who are willing to work.
It may be said, without much exaggeration, that the American farmer
is responsible for tbe upbuilding of
the factory. He has voted steadily
for half a century to give protection
to the extent of the difference in cost
of production between tbis country
and any country that desires to sell
in our markets, Was that right or
wrong? Was it wise for the farmers
to do that? There was no market at

Not alone by His words, but alio bj :
Hlfl Conduct, our Lord tuug:it Hii foi-
lowers. They had not as yet been bo-
gotten ot the Holy boirit, and hence ,
cuuld not   understand   or   appreciate j
spiritual things,     ihey   Could   there* [
fore receive instruction only along ua- j
turuJ  lines.   Jesus  was  raised  irem
the dead a spirit being, far above a:.- j
gels, principallt.es and powers.    Had
lie then gone directly to the Father
without manifesting  Hiin-wli  to His !
disciples, they would never have hceii
able to understand  the truth of thi- ;
Hence their lessons were given them
largely in pantomime, corroborated by J
the Muster's words, explaining tnat it
was necessary that   Messiah   should
dw in order that He mig it redeem the I
world, and thut it waa also necessary
tiiat He ascend  up on  high aud re-
enter Upon the spiritual plane oi es- "
istence, which He had before He cam- j
Into the world — in order that from i
that higher plane of being He might
be  the  more  capable  of   tilling the 1
great Office of Prophet, Priest, iVWi- ;
ator and  King of the world.
-  >t only, therefore, did Jesus manifest  Himself during  the  forty  days, ■
some seven times, for a few moments !
each time, in various forms, but final-
ly, at the conclusion of the forty days.
Ho ascended in full view of His disciples.    Thia was one way of telling
them of His ascension, that He had
gone to tlie Father, that they need not j
expect tu see Him again us formerly, i
We are not, however, to BUpposa for '
a moment that Jesus ascended a flesh* '
ly or human being; wo remember, un ;
the  contrary,  that "flesh  and   blood
[cannot inherit the Kingdom ol Uod," ;
and that "He was put to death in the
flesh but quickoned in the spirit," and
tiiat thenceforth, as  tha  Apostle declares, "The Lord is that Spirit" (11.
Corinthians iii., 17).
|   The  Apostles  were  to  bear  witness
to the resurrection of Jesus; hut .Judas having lost his place, and it having  been  giveu  to  Ht.   i'aul, it was
proper ttiat the latter, as well as tin-
rest of tho Apostles, should be able
to bear witness to Jesus' resurrection.
Recounting those  who had  seen  the
Lord after His resurrection, in some
■ of   the   various   manifestations,   St.
I'aul says, "Last of ull Ile wan soon
of me also, as one bom before the
Jesus appeared lo St.  I'aul in the
glorious brightness of His Spirit Being, "shining above tie- brightness ol
the sun at noonday." Tho sight caused
injury  to the eyes  of tho   beholder.
Such a manifestation would havo been
inappropriate and  unsatisfactory had
Uie Redeemer so appeared tu tho eleven during the forty days.   How could
they huve identified the glori.ms Personage, wno simile above the brightness of tho sun  at  noonday, us the
Lord  Jesus,   whom   they   had   Known
for years.   How could thoy Imve been
enubl-d to fully Identify Him, in His
many different appearances, with His
former self—their fc'rlend, their Teach*
«rP  Uut to Saul of Tarsus, lho repealling in tiery light, above the noonday
glare, was very appropriate.    It convinced him, iu a manner lhat no human   appearance   iu   the   flesh  could
have equalled, tiiat .Jesus was no iin-
poster.   St. Paul'-, conversion was in*
itantaneous.   "Who art thou  Lord?"
he  uskt-d.    "I   am  Jesus  Whom  mun
persecutest"—still  represented  in My
followers, of  whom  St.  Stephen  wai
one, who yoa murdered, and others oi
whom you have boen hailing to prison.
it should  not cause  us  to  m irve
that Jesus asoended as  He declared,
"up where He was before" (John vt,
62).    It should  not  surprise us thai
the Heavenly Father gave Hun back
a., the glory aud honor
before He caino into tiie world—with
added glory,    lt should  not surprise
us therefore, that the Apostle declares
that Ht; ascended, In dignity and *ta*
tion. far above  angels,  pi inctpaLtie*
and powers, and every  neaie that it
named!   OSpheaians   i,  21.)    On   the
contrary, it would  be  both equitabl
and God-like thai  the gr rat Jehuvah
should highly honor HU faithful, (Jul)

To suppose t.iat Jesus went to heav
en a man is to mistake the significance nf His ttie. The 8on of Man.
which He maintains, a.-, Identifying
Him with His great redemptive work
—as one of His many titles. To suppose that Jesus it a human being iu
heaven would be to suppose that He
is still as when in the flesh, "a little
ower than the angels," whereas the
Scriptures declare that He has as*
Qended far higher, so that all the
angels of God, ms well a* men, are
j commanded to worship Him. To slip-
] pose Jestu In heaven a human being

The error of supposing that Jesus is
still a man signines the denial of His
Word, that He would ascend up whore
He was before, and the denial oi the
Apostle's teaching that He has been
highly exalted tu glory and distinction, the divine nature, as instead ot

declared, had led to oilier errors, one

Thinking of ths Lord at His second

two years later, he officiated as director uf the Peacemaker's coronation.
Nine yoars afterward it was his duty
to bury the dead King in titling pomp
and ceremony, aud to announce to

oi untold activity, in which he bas

The Duke of Norfolk is a member

century, and his ancestors have play-

Still In Harness.
Threatened men live long. In hia
early daya, when he announced his intention of becoming a minister of the
Gospel, that wonderful old man, General Booth, who, ut the uge of eighty-
two, is still in harness, forming
schemes for the reformation of the
world's outcasts, was told by the doctor that "it would be sheer suicide.
You would be dead iu a year," said
the physician. But young Booth would
not be deterred. He went ahead with
hia ideas, and, although he was the
sole support of his mother, found time
to conduct evangelistic meetings in
the slum d'stricts after business hours.
And when he married he and his wife
separated from any recognized body
and went out to catch their converts
from public-houses and gambling
Friends were found who sympathised, and one invested a small capital—
about $25.00ft-in William Booth's interest. It is from the income thiB
sum brings in that the general has
brought up hia family, and at present
his only personal moneys are derived
from the same source. He doea not
draw a single penny from the funds
of the army, merely receiving hia traveling expenses from that source. The
original capital returns to the friend
who invested it on the general's death.
Racing to the South Pole.
Captain Scott hai a rival in his
dash to the South Pole in the person
of Captain Amundsen, the famous
Norwegian explorer, the first man to
accomplish the naviuntion of the
Northwest Passage. It is in connection with the latter expedition that
the captain tells an amusing Eskimo
story. Having lost several dops. Captain Amundsen, in his best Eskimo,
intimated his desire to purchase one
from a certain tribe. To his surprise,
however, the requpst was promptly
refused." An explanation was demanded, and the man applied to returned next dny with a chubby,
laujrhing bny on his hack. "Such we
do not sell," said the native. The
explorer was astonished: something
was wronrr. "You wished to purchase
one," said the man, seeim? Captain

waa discovered that the Grecnlandlc
term for "dog" was equivalent to
"child" In the Netchillie language.
. Electrical Tree. ..
There is a peculiar tree in the forests of Central India which hns most
curious characteristics. The leaves
of th 1 trpe are of a hiehly sensitive
nature and so full of electricity that
whoever touches one of them receives
an electric shock. It has a very
singular effect upon a magnetic
needle ond will influence it at a distance nf even 70 feet. The electrical
strength of the trees varies according to the time of day, it being strong,
est at midday aud wpakest at midnight. In wet weather it-, powers
disappear altoeether. Birds never

Will Sell Through Calgary Office
Lumbermen Decide to Change Policy-Mill Men to
Control Prices—No  Changein List
Calgary, Oct. 0.—Far reaching
changes were decided on at the conference held in Calgary over the week
end by the members of the Coast and
Mountain Lumbermen's .association.
It was tlecided among the members
that they would close down a large
number of their mills this coining
Another Important change also
agreed upon waa that lumber at presont in stock in the various mills
will be sold through an otlice which
Will be located in Calgary. Probably the mountain and const interests
will have separate offices hut there
will be more than two selling agencies can handle, lt is said that the
dealers and mills are all pretty well
stocked and the idea in selling
through one office is that the mills
will get cleaned out ol their surplus
lines. As tha husiness has been conducted for the past year there has
been some cutting in prices. If a
mill had a large stock of one special
line on hand it would tell its travelers to make a cu; of from $1 to $3 a
thousand on this particular article.
Under the present arrangements all
competition is to be removed. > The
dealers can only buy from the head
office in Calgary antl only at the one
price. Tbe effect of the new arrangements will be to bring all the mills
into the association.
The   trade   for   the past year has
been somewhat hurt by the encroach*
meats of American mills. It was decided at the meeting that the association would meet all the cuts that
the Americans might make and put
them out of business at all costs. In
thu meantime"an eflort will he made
to have the government put a duty
on American lumber that will give
them protection in the rough lumber,
ia which they have to meet the keenest competition at present.
As a result of the placing of the
lumber from one office alone there
will he nearly two hundred lumber
travelers out of employment. The
individual salesmen that the mlllmen
had on the road will now be out of
employment, as it is anticipated that
through the new arrangements probably tea or a dozen travelers will
be able to handle all the orders.
Those in close touch with the lumber
business say that the matter is not
likely to cause any advance in prices
of lumber until next spring at least.
It is not known whether there will
be, oven then, hut ft ls reasonable to
suppose that when tho dealers' yards
are fairly cleared and the mills have
their surplus stock disposed of, there
will he another meeting of the association.
In the meantime it will i)e taken as
an assured fact that tbc list price
which the mlllmen have adopted will
he adhered to without any variation.
Has   An   Idea  That Pays
A Boy Who Developed a Profitable  Business From
Growing Sweet Peas
This is the story of a boy with a
$2,000 idea—and perhaps more. He
was seventeen and just out of the
Manual Training High School In
Kansas City when thc great thought
came to him.
"I shall grow sweet pens (or the
eity florists," he told his astonished
Parents, "there's money In that business."
Happily for Bryson's idea his father owned several acres of unused land
ten miles from the city and In close
touch with rapid transportation.
Hrysoii borrowed ahmit one hundred
leet of it, got enough money from
the hank—I aeked hy 1118 father— to
build the necessary greonhouse so
that winter should not Interfere with
hia work, and buy seed and tools.
This seed he bought from the best
Horlsts lu Calliornia. He did most
oi tbe work himself because, you BQC-,
he hnd learned carpentry In the manual training school; and he studied
at night every cntnlogue nnd all the
botanical hooks he could get. it
took sonic nerve at this period io go
ahead because the boy's school friend
and a few of' the neighbors laughed
at bis project. Whin they It-awed
that he had chared $1il(l and I ad
paid back some of bis borrowed japl-
tal they quit ImiRliing. one hnnd
red dollars was a mighty pile in Bryson's opinion that fall. Ho had
learned something valuable about the
dignity of labor and also he had a
few pertinent ideas aliout money. He
learned that with a good reputation
one had good credit and with credit
he could do many things. Therefore
he rented more land from his father,
signed up a few more customers, and
wont to work more eagerly than ever
At the end of the year—the second—
ho had paid his last note and had
$400 to his own account. By this
time he had two people working for
him. Incidentally, Bryson's father
was willing by this time to back him
in anything, The hoy cleared $800
the third year.
This boy, now twenty-one, has not
given all his time to sweet peas, but
these were his principal product. He
grew violets and lihes-of-the-valley
also, hut sweet peas were by far the
most successful (lowers on the little
plnce. He sold and still sells his
products almost exclusively to city
dealers in wholesale lots. He received prices ranging from $26 a
thousand at Christmas to $.1 a thou
sand for bis sweet peas in the summer midseason, Barly in the spring
before the en owe had gone, be pot
$7.no to $10 a thousand and sold
from live to ten thousand a day. The
i sweet peas were arranged twenty-flVc
to the bunch.     Bryson has from ten
I to liftoen girts for the picking i nd
employs six or seven laborers end
gardeners for the setting out and
care of beds,—Chnrles Dillon.
Winter Protection For Fruit
"What, can I do to be saved?" till- III their minds. The onus nf saving
lions of fruit, trees in Canada are, the trfles rests: upon the growers solo-
calling aloud in view of the approach l.V, ami the majority of tbem realize
ing winter, nnd thousands of thrifty tholr responsibilities in the matter,
fruit-growers ami farmers with Vir-! The man with an orchard knows
Chard fl are turning the question oiler I that trees are very susceptible       to
winter injuries, that last winter,
though not a severe une, killed many
staunch trees, and he may have lost
some,himself. If a rational scheme
can be suggested that will insure his
orchard against any of the disasters
of the winter months, his mind is
now open to consider it. Have yon,
Mr. Farmer, or have you, Mr, Fruitgrower, with your interests located
in any part of this Dominion, a suggestion to make? Have you tried
some plan and met with success ?
It is a question of national importance and interest. We invite
correspondence. A free exchange ol
ideas must result in mutual good,
and the columns of this page are at
your service.
One of the most practical and inexpensive precautionary measures
that can be taken against "sun-
scalding" is the placing of shelter on
the southwest side of the tree's
trunk during the clear frosty months
of the winter. A board placed
against this side of the tree has been
proven "to do the trick," and the
binding of cornstalks about the
trunk has also proved effective. A
good coat of whitewash does not
hurt the tree and reflects the strong
rays of the sun.
Many fruit-growers, especially in
thc peach districts, have realized tin;
wisdom of planting the infant trees
with the shortest trunk possible,
some scarcely two feet. The result
is that tho branches soon shelter the
trunk and the tree itself is much
more convenient to labor with, by
reason of its shortness, both in
spraying, pruning and picking the
The varying temperatures and extreme spells of vi at r. 'tin: .January and February, permitting of
sudden thawing and freezing, bave
killed more trees than all the severe
winters on record. In prop uyitton
for this, as well as severity of the
cold, late growth in trees must he
checked. Much rain in the full, with
warm weather, will unduly prolong
summer growth, and the fruit-grower
can best prepare to check liiis early
in the summer about July lst, by
sowing a cover crop in his orchard.
At thc Ontario Agricultural College they sow oats, rye or buckwheat
and late in the tall or early in tbe
following spring plow the crop vm et
thus returning to "old mother
earth" the strength taken from her.
Peach-growers practising this principle generally sow a month later,
early in August.
The effect of the cover crop is to
draw the nourishm.nt from the
ground that might have none to the
trees and to prolong thc season's
growth. To harvest the crop grown
between the trees, as many farmers
have done In the past, is undoubted
ly a mistake, as the crop has ac
complished its purpose, and If not
returned tf. tho soil the latter is left
unfairly deprived,

to warm tor them generally that they

"But surely it is better to face the i
possibility   ol    social   ruin   and   ex- ;

fleeced by  these despicable  rogues!"
"Not always.    The victim  may be

nrchably be ruined by the exposure.
The life happiness of a woman may j

from  her  lover  or husband, or vice j
versa.   The blackmailer   knows this, ■
and knows   that he   ean   bleed   his
victim to the uttermost without danger of being sent to prison."
And here the solicitor mentioned a
case which he described ag one of the
saddest on record. A young woman,
moving in very good circles, met a
scoundrel at a seaside resort when
she was quite a girl, and he persuaded her into a secret marriage. He
treated her abominably for a few
weeks and then disappeared. For
years the woman heard nothing of
her husband. She thought he must
be dead, and, meeting a man who .
really loved her, married him without disclosing her previous marriage.
Suddenly husband No. 1 turned up,
and proceeded to blackmail the unfortunate woman under the threat ol
disclosing her previous ma?riage and
having her arrested for bigamy. For
a year or two she kept nim quiet
with all the monpy she could get; but
it was no good. He hounded her
down until at last, in despair, she
committed suicide. Afterwards her
husband got an inkling of what had
happened, consulted my informant,
and thus the whole story came to
"It sounds like the plot of a modern novel," said the solicitor; "but
I can assure you that it is an authentic case."
It is an astounding but nevertheless
true fact that there is a restaurant in
the West-end of London which is
known to be the rendezvous ol these
blackmailers. Here thev meet to
discus-j their villainous plans during
the day, and In the evening they mix
among the audiences at the music
halls, theatres, hotels, and restaurants, looking lor likely victims.
They are well-dressed, plausible
scoundrels, who quickly worm their
way into the confidence ol any person who gets into conversation with
them. As a matter ol tact, at the
beginning of last year, Scotland Yard
was in possession ol certain information which lelt little doubt that a
notorious gang ol blackmailers, comprising no fewer than a couple ol
hundred men and women ot all stations of Uie, was at work in the City
and West-end and victimizing many
people ot high social standing. In
club-land, on the racecourse, and at
all the resorts of rank and fashion,
the members of thiB gang were to be
Perhaps the most dastardly trick
played by these blackmailers is thnt
of using one of the prettiest members
of the gang as a decoy, getting a
wealthy and prominent man into an
entanglement with her, and then
making him the petitioner ln a threatened divorce case, the girl, ol course,
being married to one of the member*
of the blackmailing gang. It ts estimated that by this trick blackmailers
have netted, from various victims,
no less than (1,000,000. They know
that their victim, rather than lace
divorce proceedings, which would result in social ruin, is willing to pay
practically any price to keep the
matter quiet.
The extent to which blackmailing
ts carried on may be gauged Irom the
enormous number ol advertisements
ol private detectives published in
the newspapers, in which they emphasize that they make a speciality
of blackmailing cases.—London Tit-

     OLD QUEBEC.      "
A Olty Full ot Interest and Information  For the Tourist.
Quebec is one of the oldest cities
in America. It is noted (ur its ancient
institutions and is one of the most
interesting cities for tourists on the
continent.    A recent writer says:
The ancient seminr.ry and divinity
school, founded in lfft3, still is full of
students training for the Roman
Catholic priesthood; the Laval University, which is the largest aud most
important educational institution hi
Canada, is being rebuilt and the books
and historical manuscripts, which are
the most interesting purt of it, are
packed away with the pictures, whicn
probably are the most Important in
Canada. The library has more than
1U0.0UU volumes, including the most
complete collection in existence of
works relating to the exploration and
early   acttlenient   of   the   Dominion.
It was customary lor both military
and ecclesiastical explorers to deposit
their journals and other manuscripts
with the university, which wns founded by Mgr. de l.avnl, Mm llrst Uouiaii
Catholic bishop ol Canada, and Ihey
are now the source ol material as well
as inspiration for historians. A publishing house of Cleveland has printed translations of much ol the most
important  historical  material.
The university is composed of lour
schools mt, law, mudioltie and thu-
ology, There are ill! professors and uu
average of about 400 students.
The old part ol the eity on the bluff
Is inclosed within a wall built at the
same time as tbe citadel, und the best
preserved of any ancient city wull that
1 ever huve seen. Sentiment here is
expensive also. .As the sergeant iu the
citadel said: "ll costs u lut of money
to keep it up, but it's a heap ol satisfaction."
Beyond the walls is the Provincial
Parliament Building, a lurge and
stately building of the conventional
French school. It contains the legislative chamber, the ollices of the governor und his Cabinet, the court rooms
and the state library, aud is surrounded by au attractive uud well kept
Beyond the Parliament Building is
the best residence portion of the city,
with mauy comfortable mansions,
schools and nunneries. More than
2,000 young women from Canada and
the United States are being educated
in these institutions.
Thu ancient gates of the wall have
been preserved, aud where it has been
necesary new ones of monumental
proportions have been erected by the
Within the walls, near the principal
hotel, is a plain, old-fashioned building that was occupied tor several years
by the Duke of Kent, father of Queen
Victoria, when he was in command
of the garrison here, and one of the
new gates cut through the walls was
named after him. His daughter, her
Majesty, the late Queen, contributed
liberally toward the cost of construction, and his granddaughter, the Princess Louise, wife of the Marquis of
Lome, not only laid the foundation
stone, but revised the architectural
plans while her husband was Governor-General of Canada.
No city in America has so many
nunneries and monasteries as Quebec,
and most ol them are either schools
or homes for the poor and aged. One
ol the benevolent institutions is
unique. It is kept by the Sisters of
Providence, who receive the children
of widows and feed and teach them
for two cents a day. It is a day
nursery also, where working women
can leave their babies to be cared for
by sweet-faced nuns while they are
earning their living.
The number of churches and the
size of them is surprising. Nearly all
are of the Roman Catholic faith. A
cathedral of the Church of Kngland
occupies a conspicuous place in the
centre ot the city and is interesting
because a number of battle flags are
hung in the chancel, over the pulpit
and the altar, and in the vestry is a
beautiful communion service presented by the late King Edward. The
sexton will tell you that it cost
One ol the oldest churches ln
America is the French cathedral or
basilica ot Quebec, which dates back
to 1647. It is one ol the most imposing structures in Canada. It contains
several important pictures, including
a picture of the crucifixion painted
by Van Dyck in 1630, which,'with several other examples of the old masters,
was looted trom the churches ln Paris
by the revolutionists ot 1793 and purchased by Abbe Des Jardins. ot Quebec, who happened to be In the

Mr. Algernon Edward Aspinall, secretary of the West Indian Committee
in London, who is about to visit Canada, is one of an energetic coterie of
Englishmen of affairs who are making
exceptional efforts to improve the
trade conditions of the British West
Indian Islands. Mr. Aspinall has
held official position in several of the
West Indian colonies. He is in his
fortieth year, and is a man of peculiarly energetio temperament. His favorite recreation is mountain, climbing
and walking in Switzerland, and he
is not r-atisfied if he cannot break
time records whether in walking or
climbing. When he returned to England from the West Indies he deliberately set out to work up a West
India advancement party, and he
threw into the work all tiie energy
which had made his name famous in
the Alps. He first published a pocket
guide to the West Indies which at
once resulted in a marked increase in
tourist travel from England, and infused new lite Into the organisations
having the welfare of the British West
Indies at heart. In 1898 he was elect-:
ed secretary to the West India Committee, and shortly afterwards was ap-
poiried secretary of the West India
Club. About the same time he was
elected a member of the council of
the British Cotton Growing Association. A favorite project of Mr. Afnl-
nail ts a sort of commercial union between the whole of the British possessions on this side of the Atlantic, inJ

The preference of many women writers for a mule pseudonym is doubtless a survival of the old superstition
that to engage iu the tusk of authorship was unwomanly." The Bronte
listers set the fashion in appearing
as Ourrer, Acton, and Ellis Belt respectively. Their example was followed by George Eliot. Hut George is
a name to which the distressed lody

But In Singapore Chinese Maids Alone
Are Refined and Modest.
There are worse places than Singapore but I don't recall their mimes at
thia writing; yet Singapore U really a
beautiful city, writes George A. Dor-
sey, Ph.D., LL.D. It grows in beauty
nnd its beauty grows on you. It is an
exotic beauty, the strange, penetrating beauty of a great conservatory,
the beauty of hundreds of cold mohur i
trees in resplendent blossom, ol
strange orchids, of gayly decorated
richsnaws, of hundreds of Chinese
coolies in hats which look like inverted washpans. And of—well it would
seem there are thousands of them—
imported beauties from J span and
China, who monopolize the only
streets which are alive after sunset.
In these streets you will tind all
your i%iends of the ship. Singapore
does not invite the sightseers during
the dny, but at night they sing their
songs on the steps of the long arcades, the short, pudgy Japanese
leading the chorus. The white women—you never realized before how
repulsively ugly a white woman could
be—are close seconds. The shy, demure, slender Chinese maids alone
are quiet, reserved, modest, They
alone wear an air ot refinement, ol
nobility. They are still women and
human beings.
There is something aristocratic
about the Chinese woman, even she
who works with her hands. She may
be old, slie is ugly. She may be poor,
and her work hard; but she plays the
game. She keeps her self-respect;
she rarely grows gross. She never
looks coarse, sloppy or slovenly. Aa
compared with woman in similar
walks of life in London, she is a perfect ludv.

Egagement Etiquette
An engagement is announced by tlie
parents of Hie girl either in her own
home by means of notes to intimate
friends or in a formal notice in the
newspapers. The girl may write to
her own friends. Upon hearing of a

write a note of congratulation. In
writing to un engaged girl the proper term is to "wish her all happiness," and iu writing to a mnn one
congratulates him upon his good fortune.
An engagement mny last for nny
length of time. Too long or too short
engagements ure not advisable. If an
engagement exists, however, it is better for nil concerned to huve it announced speedily,

The finest of tortoise shell is said

rows of plntes on the hnck of the

plates, aud iu each of the others four
plntes, the hitter containing the best
material. Besides those there are
twenty-five small plates uround the
edges of the shell, known as "feet" or
"noses." The biggest turtle does not
furnish more thun sixteen pounds of
shell. Formerly the umlcrslicll was
discarded as worthless, but now it is
much esteemed for its delicacy of
