trait Of our uncle.  Poor chap!
led a devilish solitary life, I'm a"ra.
I wish he'd married—"
Julian glanced sideways at him,
at first incredulously and with suspicion, then with genuine surprise.
"There'e a fellow who's awfully
liko you, Julian," Vano went oii.
"Wonderful how features perpetuate
themselves. That gentleman iu the
armor and a helmet which appears
to be two sizes too largo for him
was our great fighting ancestor. Sir
Rupert—the peerage didn't come until after his time; wo got it, I fancy,
i'or political services crossed from one
side of the House to the other; ratted, in other words. Or Was it because the monarch of that period
took a fancy to a thon Lady Mannering? I forget; but you'll find It ln
the County History in the library.
We'll go there presently. Come into
the drawing-room. Prance and Mrs.
Field like to call It 'tho state apartments.' We usod to entertain royalty, you know."
Julian's faco flushed, in fact he was
In a glow all over, as he surveyed
the magnificent suite of rooms which
terminated in a conservatory largo
enough to bs called a palm-house.
"It is superb," ho said, and he
stole a glaace at Vane's calm and
rather indifferent countenance. "You
ought to be a proud man. Vane!"
"Eh?" aaid Vane. "Oh, ah, yes!
Yes; It's a fine place; but—but—it's
rather inconveniently large, isn't it?
Fancy sitting here after dinner! In
solitary grandeur, with one hundred
—two hundred—how many are there'.'
—wax candles blinking at youl Wa
only burn candles here; no gas allowed. Shall we put on tho electric
light, Julian? Lord, I think our poor
uncle would turn in his gravel Come
on! Music-room. Uncle hated music.
But it's all there, piano—thero's an
organ in the gallery upstairs—harp,
guitar, sackbut and psaltery. Oh, by
George, this will be In your way,
won't it? You can pipe and sing to
your heart'e content—and mine. What
a voice that is of yours! Yes; this
shall bo your special department."
Julian glanced at him curiously,
but said nothing.
"Hero we are in the library. There's
tho chair the poor old man usod to
sit in when he lectured me. 'Duties
and responsibilities of property.'
'Parliament the proper place for a
Mannering, not wandering liko a
tramp over the face of the civilized
and uncivilized world.' 'Extravagance the curse of the ago.' 'Country
gradually but surely hastening to
ruin and decay,' etc., otc. Poor old
fellow, as if we're the kind of men
to stop it. Fine lot of books. They'ro
In your line, too, Julian. By the
way"—ho stopped and looked at
Julian with a grim smile—" 'pears
to me that most of it up to the present is more In your Hue than mine.
Ah, but this suits me a little better."
They had entered the gun-room
and, for tho first time. Vane looked
about him with appreciation and
"They've kept it up very well. By
George, there's tho gun I used to
shoot with when I was a boy I" He
handled it lovingly. "And there's my
foils and boxing-gloves. Can you
box, Julian?" He held out a pair,
but Julian shook his head and smiled a negative. "Fence?"
"A little," admitted Julian.
"Catch hold!" said Vane, tossing
him a foil and a mask.
Julian hesitated a moment, then
■lipped on the mask.
"Ready? Right!" said Vane, putting himself into the first position.
Tbey fenced for a few minutes In a
perfunctory way, then Vane, warming, began to press. Julian paused,
parried skilfully, and presently slipped under Vane's guard and touched
Vane flushed, but laughed—laughed
more lightly than Julian had hitherto heard him.
"Bravo! that was smartl Yes; you
fence 'a little' as you play and sing
•a little!' My dear fellow, you handle
'em like—like a Frenchman. Let's
have another turn."
"Oh—shall we?" said Julian.
They fell to again, but thia time,
though Julian could have touched
Vane more than onco, lt was Vans'*
Button* that dabbed against Julian's
"Mine, that bout," said Vane.
"But two out of three, eh?"
But Julian shrugged his shoulders
and took off his mask. "Too hot, '
ho said, carelessly. "My dear Vano,
you would pink me seven times out
ol nine."
"That'e your modesty," said Vans,
"Get rid of It; lt will be your ruin,
as it has been mine."
The exercise, the trial ol skill, had
warmed hii heart for a moment—because  for  that moment he had  been
able to forget.
"Come on, or are you bored?"
"No, nol" aaid Vane.
"Let ma see," said Vane,   looking
round; they were In a email passage.
"Thero's a way out here—"
"That?" aaid Vano, pondering.
"Oh, to the old part of the place, to
old castle. Is lt open? Hit" to a
passing footman. "Bring me the key,
will you, please?"
While tho man went for the key,
Vane and Julian lit their cigars.
"Phew, rather musty, isn't It?"
said Vane, as the door opened stiffly.
They passed Into a narrow passage
and under an archod way Into a room
with closed shutters.
Vane went to them, stumbling over a chair, and drew them open.
"Years since I was here," he said.
"This is one of tho old rooms. Notice tho thickness of tho waits.
Dampness, isn't it? Smells like a
vault. Ilon't suppose it's been opened for—oh, goodness knows how long!

Julian looked round with an Interested air.
"It's a grand old room," he said.
He went to the window. It looked
out upon a smnll puved court-yard,
deserted, neglected nnd weed-grown,
with walls So high that they shut,

Julian was waiting for him in the

gloom, led him to the dining room,
a stately apartment large enough to
be called a banqueting hnll.
Vane motioned Julian to the bottom of the table and Mr. Holland to
the side, nnd Prance und .1 couplo ol

pleasant excitement.

Vano turned off his dismay with a

"You have been traveling so much,
been abroad so long," suggested Mr.
Holland, as if eager to make excuses
for him, "you lind it rather hard to
settle down. Of course we've all
heard of the wreck—"
"Yes, yes; bad business being
wrecked. Prance, Is this the wonderful claret? It's like yours, not a
bit better,  anyway,  Julian."
"It's the same," said Julian, nodding across his glass.
"Lord Fan worthy desired mo to lot
him know when you arrived. Lord
Lesborough," said Mr. Holland.
Vane nodded. "Lord Fanworthy,
of tho Grange," he explained to
Julian. "Our nearest neighbor. Ho
used to bo kind to me; I liked him.
We'll go over and sea him, eh? Jn
fact, there'll be a lot of visiting both
ways, won't there, Mr. Holland?'*"
Mr. Holland nodded cheerfully.
".'Yes, yes; certainly, my lord.
Everybody is delighted to hear that
you are—cr—home; the Lisles—"

to Julian.

remarked Vane.

"Ah, yes, Limmington. And thero
are the Chases, and the Prothcrocs.
Plenty of society for you, Julian."
Mr. Holland looked slightly puzzled. It was as it his lordship and
his cousin had things in common;
but he rambled on with local names
and local gossip and Vano listened—
or looked and nodded as if he did—
and Julian smiled his soft, pleasant
■mile; he was certainly listening.
The lunch was over at last, and
Mr. Holland, looking beseechingly at
Vane, said:
"If your lordship would kindly
give me half an hour, say an hour,
in tho library—"
"Not lf I know it," retorted Vane
with a laugh and a shako of ihe
head. "No, no! I remember thoso
half hours in the library you nnd

pleasantly enough.

sighed, und as if emboldened by the

"No, Mr. Holland, sir, 1 noticed it
myself," said Prance, solemnly.
"But from all accounts his lordship's been through a great deal
since we had the honor of seeing him
last; and thut may account for tho
change in him. Ho certainly is different—moro gravo and absent-minded than I remember him. No doubt
it's that wrock, Mr. Holland."
"Yes, yes; I dessay," assented Holland, slightly encouraged. "In ono

Miss Laura Rose's Address Before the
Women's   Institute.
An unique and unusually interesting
address on "The Womanly Sphere of
Woman" was delivered at the Women's
Institute convention at the Guelph Model Farm on Wednesday, Dec. 13, by
Miss Laura. Rose of the O. A. C,
Guelph. There was an Immense attendance of ladles drawn from many
different parts of Ontario, and the sentiments of the speaker were frequently
applauded. Miss Rose, who ls a very
pleasing speaker, deprecated the entrance of Women Into the spheres of
work better suited for men. A woman's success ln the financial world
might mean the sacrifice of her womanly nature, and cause failure more pathetic and far more to be regretted
than financial failure.
"Let us safeguard well the difference
In our nature which makes men seem
our superior, and which, lf neutralized, would only mar us and probably
blot out the very best part of our nature," aaid Miss Rose. "The winning
of a diploma often means physical
wreck. She has won her laurels dearly, but for her rounded figure she has
got muscular flabbiness, and for her
rosy, merry face she has got sharp-
featured Irritability. I think lt would
be well to leave this delving into deeper science to men, and let us be content to read of their wonderful discoveries. Some women are constantly uncomfortable because all the time trying to know more and more, so that
they have not time to enjoy life.   •
"The education of our girls has been
towards taking them from the home.
During their school days they are always, when at home, poring over book3
and they take no Interest ln home life
and home work. What can we do to
keep our girls ln the kitchen or turn
them again to the kitchen; My greatest hope ln the Macdonald Institute ls
that It may turn girls back again to
the home life, and that they may there
find their greatest pleasure in administering to the comforts of the Inmates
of their own homes. "Nothing lovelier
can be found ln woman than to study
household good.' At the Institute they
study lt under such lovely conditions.
There they, aa they bend over the washboard, take delight ln seeing the soil
come out of the clothes, and when they
go to the kitchen cooking becomes a
Joy. They will find such a dignity ln
performing the simple duties of housework that they would not change their
sphere for any other in the world."
Miss Rose spoke of the necessities
for congenial tastes between husband
and wife, and advised women not by
any means to limit their education to
the kitchen. She, however, complained of the neglect of home by many
married women who attend too many
social and church meetings. Many of
those works she believed should be
done by maiden ladles. "There are lots
of them," she remarked. The women
of our country were largely responsible
for the standard of home life. "A woman who is loving and true and devoted, a wife devoted and Intelligent,
need have no regrets if academic honors, high social position or political
privileges have been denied her. She
Is filling the womanly sphere. The eyes
of the world and of the God above rest
kindly upon her, and her reward ls
"Stay, stay at home, dear heart, and
Home-keeping hearts are happiest
For they that wander they know not
Are full of trouble and full ef care.
To stay at home is best."
A CuWFoTr 8maTlpox.
Now that we have such a smallpox
scare, why don't you republish the article you gave a couple of years ago on
"Smallpox," or are you afraid that the
"doctors' combine" would be after you
lf you were to do such a charitable
deed? I know of ono case where this
recipe prevented the spread of smallpox; where the son had quite a bad
attack of the disease. When you published the article, I wrote lt In my recipe book. I will write lt out for you
In case you feel like using it I think
lt would be best for people to give lt
a trial, says a correspondent cf The
Toronto World. The recipe he refers
to ls as follows:
Sulphate of zinc, 1 grain; foxglove
(digitalis), 1 grain; half a teaspoonful
of water, When thoroughly mixed add
4 ounces of water. Dose, 1 teaapoon-

Sharp Dealing In Alberta.
A good story ls being told ln Leth-
brldge of how the shrewdness of a
Canadian buyer was well matched In
a business transaction by the cuteness
of a United States seller who had taken up sheep-ranching, Bays The Canada
Gazette. The Canadian bought a herd
of 2,400 sheep, but they were to be
driven from Raymond to Lethbrldge, a
distance of 18 miles, before being
weighed. This was so obviously an
attempt to reduce their weight that
the sharp "Yankee" resolved not to lose
on the deal lf he could help lt. Accordingly, he hired a man to draw a
quantity of beet pulp from the sugar
factory at Raymond and Lethbrldge.
When the sheep were being driven
along they ate the pulp and drank water, with the result that they gained
ten pounds each ln weight. Tho rancher's foresight enabled him to net an
extra profit el tl.000.

Oleomargarine lo a product which
has long beeu regarded with suspicion, but food experts pronounce lt
"healthful and nutritious," and confute tho statements lgnorantly made
that lt Is Impure and contains Injurious Ingredients. A defense of this
much maligned article of diet ie well
presented by Mary Hlnman Abel ln
the Delineator for February, being
the sixth of her papers on "Safe
Foods and How to Get Them." Mrs.
Abel quotes Professor Harrington ln
his work on Practical Hygiene, significantly.
"Oleomargarine has been misrepresented to the public to a greater
extent probably, than any other article of food. From the time of its
first appearance in the market as a
competitor of butter, there has been
a constant attempt to create and foster a prejudice against lt as an unwholesome article made from unclean
refuse of various kinilis, a vehicle
for diseased germs, and a disseminator of tapeworms and other unwelcome parasites. It has been said to
have been made from soap grease,
from the carcasses of animals dead
of dlsense nnd from n variety of
other articles equally itnadapted to
Its manufacture. The publication of a
great mass of untruth cannot fall to
hnve at least lbs desired effect, not
solely on the minds of the ignorant
but even on those of persons of more

The Tooth Offering.
In Scotland and many parts of England, and, indeed, throughout Europe,
It ls (or used to be) a popular custom
when a tooth Is extracted to put a
pinch of salt on lt and throw lt Into
the fire. This is a survival of a remotely ancient practice, dating from
the Gothic days of Sun worship, of
which the fire Is an emblem; and the
acUon of burning a separated tooth
was recognized as "a tooth offering."
The alleged penalty for omission of the
observance varied ln different localities.
In one lt was said that the next tooth
would be a "buck's" or a "dog's" tooth;
or that the neglectful owner of the
tooth would have to search for lt after
death ln Hades, or that something else
equally terrible would happen.
Apple Pips and Peelings.
Apples have long been Invested by

Scottish belief ls that lf.an apple-pip

which the shooter's partner ln life will
come. Another, and more general, superstition ls to peel an apple ln one long
unbroken strip of rind, which ls then
thrown over the left shoulder. If It
falls unbroken to the ground the
thrower's wedding will be soon,
and lf In falling it assumes the
shape of an alphabetical letter, that
letter will be the Initial of the surname of the future spouse.

Why Cows Should Be Tested.
A great many overlook the value of
testing the milk of ench cow ln the
herd, for the profits at the creamery
depend more upon the percentage of
butter fat contained ln the milk than
upon the amount of the flow.
Twe cows ln the same herd may
serve as an Illustration. One gives
GOO pounds of milk during one month
which tests only 3 per cent butter fat,
while the other cow will only give
600 pounds, but the test shows 6 per
cent butter fat It can be easily seen
which Is the more profitable of the
A number of North Dakota creameries are Insisting tbat their patrons

farmer ls taught to keep profitable
dairy cows they will be more satisfied
with results and, as a matter of course,
will remain patrons of the creamery
longer tban If they were dissatisfied.
If the patron will not keep a tester of
his own the creamery will provide him
with separate cans for each cow's milk
and will test tbe milk for him free of

with three quarts at a feed and gradually Increase, says H. G. Manchester
In Rural New Yorker. In this way you

given all she will eat at one time she
will bloat and go down. We cnll such
a cow drunk, but the scientific men
claim tbat intoxication Is impossible
from this cause. At nny rate, tbe cow
ls very weary, stops giving milk and ln
some cases dies. Wben fed ln small
quantities the milk flow Increases and
the cow does well. We like to feed
some cornmeal when feeding apples.
Be careful not to feed large ones or

Trail  From  St. John,  B. C, to  Lake
Teslin, !n the Yukon.
Lleut.-Col. Fred White, controller of
the Northwest Mounted Police, has received a report from Superintendent
Constantlne, who ls ln charge of a party of Mounted Police entrusted with
making a trail from St. John, B. C, to
Lake Teslin,  ln the Yukon Territory.
The party, consisting of two officers,
six non-commissioned officers, twenty-
two constables and two special constables, left Fort Saskatchewan, March
17th last, and returned to St. John,
B. C, to winter on the 25th of September, having built a wagon trail to the
Junction of Halfway and Cyprus Rivers, a distance of ninety-four miles.
This is the hardest part of the undertaking. Steep hills had to be graded
and streams bridged. This helped to
delay the work, which was further hampered by heavy rains ln August.
Work will be resumed early ln the
eprlng, and It ls hoped before the following winter to reach a point a hundred miles northeast of Fort Graham,
about 250 miles farther. Sylvester's
Landing will be the winter quarters ln
1906 and 1907. Superintendent Constantlne states that the soil around
Lesser Slave Lake Is a sendy loam, but
good wheat, barley and oats are raised
In small quantities.
The Dominion Fishing Co. are established ln the lake, and shipping fish at
such a rate as to make the natives apprehensive for the future. On the lava
benches and the north bank of Peace
River good crops of wheat, oats and
barlej', together with vegetables, are
grown. One farmer at Vermillion last
year sold $3,000 worth of wheat to the
Hudson's Bay Co., who have a flour mill
Octopus Puts  Up Two'Fights.
A recent special from Vancouver,
B. C, says: Four fishermen had a light
with a huge devil fish at Belllngham,
Puget Sound. Clarence Benadone, his
brother Tom, William Brown, and Alva
Barger were fishing for cod in a cove
when Brown saw the octopus crawling
on the bottom towards shore. It frightened him so that he went ashore. He
told the others what he had seen and
they went ln pursuit.
The eyes of the monster gleamed In
the water like diamonds. Its movements were watched until it got Into
three feet of water, and then the men
set on It with long poles. It fought
back and thrust Its long arms out. The
men succeeded ln throwing a rope
around one of the tentacles as lt was
V-iised out of the water, and the combined weight of the men was used ln
trying to get the octopus ashore.
However, they only succeeded ln
wrenching off the arm. A knife was
tied to a pole and one of the monster's
eyes was destroyed, but it kept up a
game resistance.    Finally it got away.
Two Indians ln a canoe also report
having been attacked. The devil fish
was floating on top of the water when
the canoe ran against It. Instantly on
arm was thrown round the little craft.
The redskins cut lt off. No sooner was
the one tentacle disabled than another
was thrust out, but the Indians managed to evade It and get away.

St. Malachle, Que., Feb. 6.—(Speoial) — A cure of great interest to
women has attracted the attention
of those Interested In medical matters ln this neighborhood. Mn.
James Kinsella, wile of a well-known
oltlzen, had suffered from a complication of troubles for about two
years. She had a pain in the right
hip, In the back and was obliged to
pass water every fifteen minutes ln
a burning, itching sort of way.
She could not sleep at night and
had to sit up in a chair for two summers.
Dodd's Kidney Pills cured her.
Mrs. Kinsella speaking of ber oure
says: "After the first box of Dodd's
Kidney Pills I felt much better.
Then I got more and they done me
a world of good. I have never slept
In the chair since I used Dodd's Kidney Plus.

Success   of  the   System In Lancashire
Woollen   Mills.
The benefits to employer and employe of a system of profit-sharing was
the topic upon which Mr. Theodore
Cooke Taylor, member for the Southeast Division of Lancashire in ' the
British House of Commons, addressed
the members of the Canadian Club at
Toronto recently.
Mr. Taylor inherited a woollen manufacturing business which had been ln
his family for four generations, and
which employed 600 hands. He considered that his employes had certain
claims upon him, and these claims he
set about meeting by Introducing the
profit-sharing system. At the end of
each year a proportion of the profits
was given to the workers ln the shape
of £1 shares of stock, which' carried
no voting power, but upon which dividends were paid. Mr. Taylor said he
had studied ln every way to make Identical the Interests of capital and labor
ln the business.
After 13 years' experience with the
profit-sharing system, he was completely satisfied with Its success, and could
recommend lt as both scientific and
sane. He would not advise those whose
sole object was to make money to
adopt such a system, for they would
be disappointed. His own motive ln Instituting profit-sharing was altruistic,
but he found he had not lost money by
lt, while he had gained Immensely ln
happiness and comfort ln his business.
Tho workpeople took more pride ln
their work and the success of the company, the best employes stayed with
the establishment, and all the workers
were learning lessons of thrift, conscientiousness, and Intelligent Interest
ln the business. Profit-sharing was not
a panacea for all Industrial evils; lt
could not make a bod business good,
but lt would make a good business better. It repaid the employer, and it dignified end glorified the employe's life.
If the young men of the upper classes
ln Great Britain, said Mr. Taylor, realized that they would be serving their
country as well by taking an Intelligent part in industrial progress as they
do by taking up military service, a new
form of patriotism would be developed.
It was not from the rank and file that
Industrial reform would come. Labor
unions and employers' associations
were all right ln their place, but they
were antagonistic, and warfare was
costly and wasteful. It was only by
working together that progress was
made. Profit-sharing was one of the
simplest and surest means of establishing good-will between capital and
Something that Should be Rubbed
in.—Whenever pain is felt in the
limbs or back, take Dr. Thomas Eclectrlc Oil; pour a little in the hand,
and applying it to tho surface beneath which the pain lies, rub briskly. If the flrst application does not
afford relief, which is not usually the
case, keep rubbing. The Oil will
gradually penetrate to the affected
part and relief will  come.

Treatment For Cowpox.
Cowpox (variola vaccine) is the same
disease which is utilized on a large
scale for tho purpose of securing vaccine matter for the purpose of pro-
acting human beings from smallpox.
The diseaso ls not at all serious, and
usually requires very little treatment.
If the teats or udder ls very sors it
would be best to use a milking tube
for drawing the milk. At any rale,
the vesicles or little blisters should not
be broken. If the cow has much fever
sho should have one pound of epsom
salts and an ounce of ground ginger,
dissolved ln half a gallon of cold water, as a drench. After the physic has
operated, give one half ounce of saltpetre twice daily In the drinking water for three or four days. If the udder ls swollen and hot bathe lt with
hot water for half an hour three times
daily, and after each bath use a little
of the following: One ounce sugar ef
lead, one quart of water. If there, ls
no fever and no swelling, only the
eruption on the teats, po treatment is
required. The disease usually runs
Its course ln about two weeks, lf not

General Purpose Hogs.
If the purpose of the hog ls to pro-
duco the largest amount of flesh ln tho
shortest period of time on the consumption of the smallest amount of
food—and certainly that Is the commercial purpose — the Berkshire ls the
equal, lf not the superior, of any otber
breed, writes C. E. Stable ln Farm
Home. The breeders of the very large
species of swlno dc not claim for their
hoga that they mature quickly, although they attain great size: the fanciers of the smaller varieties do claim
early maturity, but frequently their
animals do not go to sufficient weight.
The medium Berkshire and the Poland-
China seem, therefore, to be the two
species especially adapted to general
But of these two the Berkshire ls
the more alert and ac:lve and having
these qualifications le apt to be the
more healthy. He Is, we think, the
better ranger and pasturo feeder of
the two—a very Important factor In
the production of cheap pork.
Feeding the Horse.
The horse needs a variety of grains,
Just as his owner needs a variety of
feed. A diet suggested by a practical
and successful farmer Is: "A ration
mixed In fho proportion of fifty pounds
of oats, fifty pounds of corn and twenty flvo pounds of bran will always be
relished by the work horse, and lt will
be found Infinitely better sdnp-cd to
his needs than straight com Nor lr "

How   We   Learned   Whal   We   Knew
About the Heavens.
The first of a series of lectures at
the Biological Building of the University of Toronto to be given to the students upon subjects not fully dealt
with ln the curriculum was delivered
by Prof. Baker on "The History of
Astronomical Knowledge." The lecture
was very entertaining, and was attended by a large number of students,
and as lt was public lt was also attended by a number ot outsiders. Prof.
Baker dealt flrst with the appearances
tn the heavens which would have presented themselves to the notice of early astronomers. There were three of
these appearances which would have
been particularly noticeable. One was
the fact that the planets all moved In
the same direction about the sun. Another was the appearances resulting
from the fact that the earth moved on
Its own axis. The motion of the planets ln an eclipse was another appearance which'-presented Itself for explanation, and lt could easily be understood that they needed considerable
acuteness of observation for their solution. There were several passages ln
the "Odyssey" which gave evidence of
more than ordinary knowledge of the
motion of the heavenly bodies. Prof.
Baker read a few ot the passages
whleh served to illustrate the point
The early astronomers had been unaware of the chief cause of the appearances which they were trying to
explain; namely, the motion of the
earth with them on lt.
The earliest conception of the universe that had deserved the name of
a "theory" was that the stars were
fixed ln a crystallne sphere, which
during the day revolved about the
earth from east to west The motion
of the sun and moon from west to
east however, had also to be accounted for, and this was done by
simply multiplying the spheres ln
which the planets moved. This hypothesis, however, was itself not ample,
and had to be modified, and the course
of modification led to the modern conceptions of the universe. The sphere
theories, however, were clung to for a
long time, and were amplified to serve
the Increased perception of appearances; by the theories of eccentrlo
spheres and epl-cycles.
The system of Capernlcus had made
the sun the centre of movement
around which the planets revolved.
Subsequent developments had been
due to the use of the telescope. The
genius of Newton had deduced the law
of the planets being detained in their
orbits by the force of an attraction in
the sun. Finally, the secret had been
wrung from the heavens and the law
of gravitation had been discovered.
The law alone, however, was discovered. What gravitation itself was had
still to be learned.

Pegged Boots In Canada.
There are few, lf any, pegged boots
made ln the factories of the United
States, while fifty years ago the sewing machine was yet unlnvented and
nearly all shoes save the hand-sewed
were hobnailed or pegged. In Canada
there are a few scattering factories
producing pegged boots for men and
boys. Adam Bertsch, a Rochester pattern manufacturer, recently ran across
one at St. John's, Nfld.
Mr. Bertsch was Interested In the
quaint manner In which the boots and
shoes are manufactured, the machinery
in use being long out of date, as compared with the present standard In the
United States. There are no up-to-date
methods, and one might easily imagine
in stepping Into this factory that the

A .report of the Connecticut experiment station states that "noodles are
prepared by European housewives and
some manufacturers from flour withe addition of a certain amount of
eggs and salt The dough is rolled into
sheets and cut Into strips or fanciful
shapes. Most of the noodles on the
market, however, although of a golden
yellow color, are not made with eggs,
but have about the same composition
as macaroni, being dyed either with a
vegetable color (commonly turmeric) or
a coal tar dye."
Twenty-two samples of noodles were
collected and analyzed by the station
during 1804, and all were found to
"contain foreign coloring matter, which
ln twelve cases was turmeric and iu
ten cases was an azo color," evidently
added with tlie Intention of conveying
the Impression that the noodles were
made with eggs or contained a greater
amount of eggs than was actually
used. Few of the samples examined

Then use a camel's hair brush on the
surface side to raise the pile. Another
method ls as follows: Stand a hot iron
upright and cover It with a wet cloth,
passing the wrong aide of the velvet
quickly over the steaming cloth. Brush,

It Is better for a stallion and his offspring to work him on the harrow, cultivator, mowing machine and hayrake

There was a Urge attendance on Mouday eveuiug at St. Michael'sOiiurch to
hear dobate on"Rosolved,that Bachelors
between 25 aud 45 sbonld be Taxed."
Half tho audience was composed of
young ladies. Tho debate whs more
humorous than profnntl, though of
oonrso, many good points wore made on
both sides, Mr H. Birmingham presided, aud the debaters were Messrs.
G. McGeer nnd A. Dodson for the
Affirmative, nnd Messrs G. Boult and
J. Birmingham for the Negative. The
judges wore Miss Pugh, Messrs. Barker
and J Moyles. The affirmative muin-
taiued that a tax on single mou, beginning at 20 years of age, would have a
tendency tn make a young man save
his money nud to provide for a homo
of his own by the time he reaohed the
ago of taxation. The yonng man as he
is at present was shown to be extravagant with his money aud iucliucd to
be lux morally. The taxes scouring
from those who prefered to pay the tax
could lie used by tlu> government in
developing the country. The negative
claimed the liberty of the individual
would bo taken nway by such a tax, aud
this would bo contrary to British prill-
ciplo. Every man should have the right

Everyone knows that for anything
to become known, it. must be talked
about. For an article to become
popular its virtue must be made the
subject of a public announcement.
That is advertising! Consequently
if the survival of the fittest applies
to business principles as well as it
does to other walks of life, the better the advertising—the better the
publicity—the better the results.
Good results mean good business,
and good business is what every
merchant advertises for. If he did
not wish to excel in his particular
line, he would not take the trouble
to write an advertisement, much
more pay for the costly newspaper
and magazine space.—British Advertiser.
