Continued from last week.
"Wc found you tied to a part of a
raft," said the voice, which sounded
nearer now, "und we are all so anxious about you! Hut you mustn't try
tu talk. The doctor suid that if you
came to 1 was to keep you quiet."
"Who—who are you?" asked Nina,
but without any great display of interest.
"Polly Ba.aford," replied the voice.
"It was 1 who lirst saw vou. 1 was
leaning over the taffrail, or whatever they call it. But there! I shnll
have the doctor on ine if I tnlk to
you. Try to go to sleep."
Nina turned o\or and endeavored
to obey, and presently fell into a
deep sleep.
When she woke the girl, Polly Bain-
ford, wns still sitting by lier side,
and she nodded approvingly and encouragingly.
"That's right! Why, what a sleep
you've had! Eighteen hours liy the
clock. And you look so much bettor!
Hush! Here comes the doctor!"
The ship's doctor, a young man,
came in rather Bhyly nnd felt her
"You are much better," he said;
then hs started as Nina thrust llis
hand aside and, sitting up, exclaimed:
"The island! Where Is lt? I want
to go back! You must find it! He is
there! You must rescue him, take
him away. I—I left him—alono, all
"Hush!" murmured the doctor; but
as sh* still continuod to rave he wont
off fpr tho captain. Tho captain had
five daughters of his own, and be
stood beside Nina's berth and looked
down at her fever-flushed face with
paternal pity and tenderness.
"What is lt mv dear young lady?"
he asked, soothingly.
"The island!" panted Nina. "It is
close by; you can find it! He is there
alono—in solitude—squite alone! In
pity, I implore you, I beg ol you to
go back and bring him away! I—I—
left him. I was foolish—mad—"
g,3_totf'*tf rfo-foc-ft-'r.'-''- '"""• *"**■
"What island?" he asked, gently.
"I don't know!      How    should    I
know?" she murmured.     "It   has   no
nam.. We wore wrecked—"
"My poor girl, we picked you up
on tho open sea," said the captain,
pityingly. "And that's days and
days ago. We can't put back—"
"Leave her to me," broke in tho
doctor. "She's raving. Very probably there is nothing in It—no island
whatever.  Leave her to inc."
Nina relapsed into delirium and
Polly Bainford and hu nursed and ut-
tendod hor. It wus a week before sho
recovered full consciousness, und by
that timo thu vessel wus Hearing
Nina, when sho camo back to lier
senses, lay with closed eyes and aching heart, listening to the wash of
the waves ngniiiBt thu ship, .mingled
with the sounds of music and singing. They reminded her of the sounds
she had henrd ns she tossed on a
portion of the raft.
"What are tbey singing? What is
the music?" were almost her fust
Polly smoothed the bed clothes.
"It's the company—Mr. Ilurcourt's
company," she replied. "They're
singing one of the songs of our last
success, 'My Lady's Pride.' Hoes it
disturb, you? I'll get thein to stop.
I'm sure they will, for they ure most
anxious about you; and they're all a
good  sort."
"No, no," said Nina. "Don't stop
them.    An^ are you 0ne of them?"
"Yes," suid Polly, "rm Ono of the
company. But I'm not a principal.
I've only got a small part—what's
called a 'Singing Chambermaid.' "
Nina looked at hor uiicomprehend-
lngly, and Polly laughed.
"Oh, it means thnt I'm only small
potatooo. You see, I haven't much of
a voice, and so I tako a back seat.
We've been touring in Australia and
we're going to do the provinces—and
London—if we've luck."
"I see," said Nina, with a sigh
that was a little envious; for this
girl with tho bright eyes und tho
mobile lips had her futuro marked
out for her, while she, Nina, was
adrift on the world, homeless und
friendless. Slie dosed her cyoi, Polly
stole away, and Nina pondered deeply. In hor delirium she hud implored
the captain to turn from his course
and search for tlie island. It had
been n hopeless prayer then; it was
still more hopeless now. Besides, even If sho could achieve tho impossible and persuade thein to turn
back, they might not be nble to And
this particular Islund among the
group, and if they did, llunnering
would probably have left. Ue had
the canoe, and she knew him loo
woll to think he would remain there
in solitude. Then, again, there was
their mutual promise. She hud pledged horself to keep their murringe secret, and how could sho do so if she
told them nbout the island?
The captain and the doctor visited
hor a little later, and when tbo captain rallied her on "her island" she
colored, bit hor lip and turned hor
head aside, and she heard him say
to tho doctor as thoy left the cabin:
"I told you so! .Iust a funey on
her pnrt. People tnlk liko that when
they're In her state. She must havo

The doctor nodded osscntingly.
"Better lot her nlone, and say no
more about It—uless sho does," ho
snld, sagely; and. meeting Polly on
deck, ho cautioned her to refrain, fi'om
questioning thu patient.
"As if I should!" retorted Polly,
with a toss of her pretty hend.
But sbo had to ask on* question,
and she asked It tho noxt time ahe
went to the cabin.
"Don't think I want to bother you
with questions, or thut I'm a bit
curious, dear," sho said, "but 1—I
don't know what to call you."
Nina husltuted a moment nnd a
blush rose to her face, which Polly,
looking straight bofore her, ufTcclod
not to see. Nina thought.. "If I give
my real name it must be Nlnn Mannering-—but I don't know whether I
am properly married, and there, is
my promise." She was almost us reluctant to give her    maiden    name.
"_y name is Decima Wood." It
was one belonging to an ancestor
on her mother's sido.
"It's a very pretty, name, almost
as pretty us its owner," remarked
Polly, with u brisk nod. "And now.
Miss Wood, you've got to get well
aiid strong and come up on deck as
soon as ever you can. I can seo you
huve had u bad time—"
Nina looked nt. her u little pite-
otisly. "Ah, if you knew!" she breathed.
"But I don't know, and I don't
want to know, unless you want to
tell me"—Nina drew u long sigh—
"and I sec you don't. I've undertaken to ask no questions, dear, und I'm
sure you won't be bothered by any
one.else; bo you needn't look so anxious and unhappy."
ln a tow days Nina was strong
enough to leav« the cabin, and the
doctor and Polly helped her on deck
und ensconced her in ono of the long
deck chairs ln a corner warmed by
the sun and sheltered from tho wind.
Tho vessel was crowded, and her
nppoarance croatod a great deal ol
interest and curiosity; but the passengers with the consideration which
is one of the few good things for
which we have to bless thu modern
civilization, did not intrude upon her,
but left her alono in her nook to
look on dreamily at tho lifo on board
a ship.
Every now and thon as she watched the promenaders, the gay and
noisy groups playing at deck quoits
and similar games, her hand stole to
bur bosom, In which still lay hidden the oilskin pocket containing
Fleming's diary and her marriage
"lines," as if sho were trying to realize by actual touch tho reality of
the past.
AU day tho theatrical company

snatches of song, and in thu evening
there were informal concocts in the
vast saloon, to a corner of which
Nina sometimes stole to listen und

Sometimes the captain approached
and spoke to her, or one of the passengers offered the stereotyped courtesies, but Nina seomed to shrink
from thom all, save Polly, and, recognizing her reticence and resurve,
thoy gradually ceased to address her.
But they were nenring England, the
vo.Vug* was drawing to a close, and
on the last ovening tho captain pulled up beside her and in his gruff
voice, which his kindly smilo fully
discounted, he said:
"W* shall be in port to-morrow.
Miss Wood. Can I wire to your
Ui'opl* to meet you? You are in my
charge, you know."
Nina toiureu a„n I-.-.1.-J j-..,.. ._,,.
a moment; then she raised hor eyes
"No, thank you," she said; "I—I
will not trouble vou."
The captain tried not to look surprised,  and  Nina hurried   ou:
"My passage—I must pay for that.
I—I ought to have spoken of it before."
The captain laughed and shook his
"Never mind the passage money,
«jy dear young lady. The Weldon
lino hasn't dropped dow» to asking
fare from a caHlaway. Why, were
only too proud to have picked you
ur, and earrled you with us!"
Nina drew a sigh of gratitude and
relief, for she know that her slender
purse—the small stock of money
which sh* had brought with hor
from th* Island—would have beon
exhausted by the heavy faro.
The captain hung about for a moment or, two, shuffling from one leg
to the other awkwardly; thon ho
said, as gruffly and with as tender a
smile ns before:
"If—if there's any dllheult about
your people meeting you, Miss Wood,
I'm sure my wife would bo glad if
you'd come home to us. I've got five
girls of my ©wu, and you wouldn't
feol lonely."
But Nina pictured those five girls
plying h*r with friendly, sympathetic
questions, and, with moist eyes,
thanked him and declined the offer.
"My plans ar* all mad* out," she
Th* n*xt morning Polly cam* and

The last day of the voyage waa
ono of bustle and confusion, lightened by the electric gaiety of tho company of actors, who sang from morn
to night, and got up another charity
concert, in which they performed
with an enthusiasm far and uway beyond that which they would havo displayed on the ordinary and professional stago.
When the vessel glided slowly into
port Nina said har grateful good-bye
to the captain and Polly and shook
hands with somo of the people who
bad been kind to her, and in the confusion slipped away.
With th* clothes she stood up ln—
and they wore mostly Polly's—and a
small handbag, also Polly's, sho
found herself in thn whirl of the
crowded thoroughfare. She naa ,v
membered a cheap and quiet hotel In
one of the streets in the Strand-
Durham Street—at which she and her
father had stayed many years ago,
and sh* went thoie in a cab, and was
fortunate onough to obtain a room.
It was a small on*, near the roof,
aad sho sat down on th* bed und
looked around, and through the window at th* opposite roof, with a
sense of loneliness which sh* had
never experienced, *ven in her worst
momonts, on tho island, for Mannering had beea there to rely on, to
cheer and encourage her.
She tried to drivo all thoughts of
the past from her mind and to fix it
on the future, and when sh* had
washed and rested she took out her
money and counted it.
There were only a few pounds, and
for a moment tho reflection flashed
across her that there, on the island,
sh* had left wealth which, as Mannering had deslurod, half cynically,
was beyond the dreams of avarice.
But tho island was far away, so
far as to be the island of a dream,
and her present needs wore very near
and pressing.
Slie romuiued ill her room until the
morning; then she rose early and,
with ev«ry regard to economy, purchase, some clothes. After breakfast
she mode a parcel of the things Folly
had lent her and, with a few lines of
gratitude, sent them to tho address
on the card—"26 Percy Street, Chelsea."
Then she set out to begin that
most difficult of quests, the scarci
for a livelihood. It need scarcely lie
stated that she looked tlirough til*
advertisements in the daily papa's.
There were sevoral that seemed to
her suitable to hor case, and »hc selected ono wliich sot forth the desire
of "X. Y. Address Messrs. Sloper Jt
SIvne. 219 Rutland Street, Regent
Street," for a young lady s*cretary.
Nina, in the simple block dress she
had bought, and with her veil down,
found, not without some difficulty,
the Rutland Stroet mentioned in the
advertisement, and was somewhat
surprised to find that, instead of a
private house, wliich she had *xp*ct-
od it to be, it was an office ovor a
rather seedy-looking bonnet shop.
Knocking at th* door, which bore
in black paint the name of Mlopar _
Slyne, sho was bidden by a shrill
voice to *nt*r, and, obeying, found
horself In a smull room furnished, as
far as a dosk and two chairs went,
as an ofltco.
Th* Arst thing that struck Nina
was the strong perfume of hair   oil,
Kith which she rightly crodited tha
oelc, blnck head of a young man
who was seated at the desk surveying himself in a small, crooked mirror whltria hung conveniently abov*
It. 8**lng that he was an extramely
commonplace youth, with a faco spotted like the paid, one would have
thought that tho glass could havo afforded him little satisfaction. Nevertheless he did not withdrew his eyes
from it as he drawled in a rich cockney accent:
"Well, what is it?"
"I wish to see Messrs. Sloper 4
Slyne," said Nina.
At tho sound of the mimical voice
the youth swung round, opened his
mouth—it waa like a gush across his
ill-favored face—and stared at her
with watery eyes.
"Oh," he said at last, as if he
wero slowly recovering from the
shock of h*r beautiful face and low,
sweet voice, "you want to sa* the
.guv'nors? Sorry; they're both away.
Gone on special business to the Marquis of Quisby. Wired for this morning. Awfully sorry. P'r'aps I'll do.
I'm thsir confidential clerk, you
"I come in answer to this advertisement," said Nina, taking it from
hor purse and laying it on the deBk.
The youth looked at it curiously,
critically, as if lt woro a curiosity of
the rarest kind.
"Ohl" ha said at last. "Ah, yes.
Quito so! So you want a situation
as sooretary?"
Nina expressed assent.
"Yes; will you take a chair?" H*
dragged on* forward. Nina sat down
and waited, and the youth stared at
hor and strokod tho place whore, lf
tho gods aro good to him, a moustache will soma time grow. "Woll,"
hs said, when tho silence and tlie
stare had becotnu nlmost Intolerable
to Nina, "this placo has gone."
Nina promptly rose, saying, "I'm
sorry.   Good-day."
"Oh, horo, otop a momont, you
kuow I" oxclalmod the youth ln an
aggrievod tone. "Don't go liko that!
There's no hurry, is thoro? This
thing's gone, but thero may be somothing elso to suit you.    Lemmo sec."
II* turned—his eyes left Nina's
face slowly and roluctuntly—to the
dosk, and opening a ledger ran
through th* pages, muttering in a
sing-song voice to himself, but
glancing th* while out of th* corner
of his watery, vulgar little *y*a at
" 'Nursery governess, £50 a yoar.'

"Wood.   Itight.   And address?"
"Hickley't Hotel, Durham Street,"
said Nina.
"Right. One guinea booking-te*,

asked Nina with purdonablo surprise.

For twenty years Sydney Smith remained in Yorkshire, and, though his
ideas of clerical duty were not those
of today, yet it will not be denied that
he was a vigorous country parson, entering Into the pursuits and the daily
life of his humble neighbors and doing
bis utmost to Improve their lot. His
descriptions of his lif* and surroundings at Foston are among the most <J»
llghtful of his humorous writings. Every oue bas heard of Annie Kay, tho
little country girl, "made like a mlle-

of the rawboned riding horse Calamity,

of his four draft oxen—Tug and Lug,

magistrate Sydney Smith became famous for milking up local quarrels nnd
for dealing gently with poachers. The
game laws, Ilk* a good Whig, he could
not abide, and It stirred his honest
wrath to reflect that "for every ten
pheasants wh'ch fluttered in the wood
one English peasant was rotting In

On being answered in the affirmative
she went on to soy that she bad
brought her boy Jim to town for the
purpose of binding him out at the
"lavyerln' trade." Sbe was morally
certain, she averred, that Jim was a
bora lawyer and that all he needed was
a chance.
"Put, madam," objected the colonel,
"be Is entirely too young to begin tbe
study of law."
"Too young, Indeed!" sniffed the fond
mother contemptuously. "You don't
know Jim. He was born for a lawyer."
Much amused the colonel asked her
on what grounds sbe based ber hopes
of a future at ta* bar for her darling
"Why," said she, 'when he was only

Work  of  Danish   Control   Societies   In
Determining Actual Value.
It ls recognized that the profit from
a cow depends on three factors (1), the
milk yield; (2), the percentage of but-
terfat ln the milk, and (8), the fodder
consumed. Thus, to take an example
from a report of one of the Danish
milk-testing or control societies, two
cow* produced respectively ln 1900 (A)
10,267 pounds of milk and (B) 10,663
pounds; the difference ln quantity was
not great, and both cows might have
been regarded as fairly equal. The
tests showed, however, that the aver
age fat content ln the case of (A) was
2.75 per cent., and ln the case of (B)
3.66 per cent., giving a difference In
the butter produced ln the course of
the year of 112 pounds, while ln addition the cow (A) had consumed considerable more fodder than the other.
It was In rovee.l sne.h cases *■ thla n.nd
to enable the Danish farmer effectively
to control the milk production of his
cows that the first of these societies
was started ln 1896 at Vejen.
Briefly, the method adopted was to
employ a young man possessing, the
necessary experience in milk testing
to visit each of the dairies belonging
to the society once ln fourteen days to
test, by means ot the Gerber apparatus, the milk of each cow, and to enter
up In books kept for the purpose,
particulars as to the amount of fodder
consumed, the milk produced, the fat
and butter yield, and the changes In
tho live weight of each animal. The
success which attended the establishment of the first society at Vejen soon
led to a great extension of the system
In Denmark, and ln 1902 there were
308 societies, with 3,780 members,
possessing 136,800 cows. In 1904, the
number of societies had increased to
340. The movement spread also to the
neighboring countries, and there were
reported to be 201 societies ln Sweden,
120 ln Norway, 40 In Finland and 60 ln
Germany. In Denmark the societies
receive a state grant, amounting ln
1902-3 to £2,900, of which one society
received £07, ftvo anclntles £18 each,
and 302 societies   £9 each.
These control societies are described
as small co-operative bodies In whioh
ths farmers in a limited area, such aa
a parish, have combined in order to
share the expense of testing their
cows, the object, as stated ln the rules,
being to form a race of cows giving
the highest possible production of butter. The number of members ls usually limited to twelve or thirteen, having altogether 300 to 400 cows, and no
member can withdraw ln less than five
years, except In consequence of removal. Three of the members form a
committee, one of whom acts as treasurer. An assistant ls engaged, who
visits the members at regular Intervals
(usually once a fortnight), and remains i
on the farm for a day. His duties are
to superintend the milking and give any
necessary Instructions to the milkers, j
to weigh the milk of each cow, to take j
and test an average sample, to prescribe a proper system of feeding, and
to enter up ln the books tho results
of the control. To carry out these duties lt ls necessary that the assistant
should have received a sound practical
and theoretical education. Th* most
suitable persons are usually farmers'
sons who have had practical experience
of the fathers* farms, and afterwards
by attending an agricultural school,
acquired the elements of agricultural
science. Special courses are held for
persons intending to tak* up the posl- [
tlon of control assistants, In which Instruction as giveu in the special knowledge required, I.e., systems of feeding,
mlllc sampling _>.,a .._..■_._,, s,_,.w..ri-.»
etc., It ls obviously Important that th*
assistants should be capable and trustworthy mon; but as the position Is regarded as an excellent training ground
for young men Intending to become I
agricultural officials, Inspectors, etc., or j
farmers on "ietr own account, the sal- |
lary Is usually small—about £23, with
board and lodging. Tho outfit required
for the work consists of a modern milk
testing apparatus, the size ordinarily
used being for twenty-four tests, with
the necessary test tubes, sample bottles, etc., and a steelyard for weighing milk, the whole being packed ln
a box for transport. Th* cost ls
about £12, and this, together with all
books required, ls supplied by the

resident of this place. Is one of thousands of Manitobans who have found
relief from pains and aches of Kidney
Disease ln Dodd's Kidney Pills. Mr.
Normandeau is always ready to say
a good word for the remedy that
brought back his health.
"Yes, I can tell you Dodd's Kidney
Fills made a cure of me," he says. "I
had Kidney Disease for three year*
At times I got so bad I could hardly
attend to my work. I took Just live
boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills and my
pains and aches are all gone and
I can work as well as anybody. To
anybody who has trouble with their
kidneys all I can say is 'use Dodd'a
Kidney Pills.'"
Dodd's Kidney Pills always cur*
glck Kidneys. With well Kidneys
you can't have Bright's Disease, Diabetes, Dropsy, Rheumatism or any of
those other fearful and fatal diseases
that spring from sick Kidneys.

more tulips were sold than existed. At

thereafter known as the brewery tulip.
In Amsterdam a father gave one by
way of dower with bla child. Thereafter tbe variety was known ns the

The especial characteristic of the
Irish peasants, according to Frank
Mathew. in "Ireland," is an old fashioned courtesy. They are all sure, he
asserts, that they are descended from
chiefs, and their manners are ruled accordingly.
Take shelter ln any hut on the mountains, and you will be greeted as if Its
Inmates had been longing to see you.
This will not be due to the fact that
you seem prosperous; ludeed, you
would be even more graciously welcomed if you were In rags. Nor is their
courtesy only exhibited wheu they ar«
hosts. Once when I was exploring. l__<

seated by the wayside accosted my
equally ragged driver. "Excuse me,
sir," she said, "but did you happen to

ma'am," said he, bowing, respectfully,
"nnd I'm sorry I did not." "Who was
she?" I asked him when we bad driven
out of her bearing. " 'Deed then, and I
don't know," said he. " "lis some poor
soul tbat has lost her loaf and will be

Andrew D. White's first diplomatic

Mr. White says, "brought a militia

Vigorous Measure* For It* Removal
Should Be Taken.
At middle age certain organs lose
functional activity and shrink and
waste away, demanding less blood and
nerve energy. This decreased need for
nutrition. If not heeded, will result in
taking into the body more food than
cau be oxidizer and used either to
build up tissue or for tbe generation of
heat and energy. The result ls kidneys, liver and other excretory organs
are overworked In the effort to remove
the body wastes and become diseased,

nature stores up this foul material ln
the form of fat in all the lymph spaces,
between tbe libers of the muscles and
in every other odd corner ln the body
where It can be stowed away. In time
this lifeless, useless structure of fat
crowds out muscle, gland and other
normal tissues and takes their place.
This ls what is known as fatty degeneration and always shortens life, ending often in sudden death from heart
failure, apoplexy, diabetes er kidney
Tbe prevention of obesity means regulation of diet, especially ln middle life
und when changing f i'„m an active out

should be cut dowu from one-fourth to
one-half, especially avoiding fats and
sweets, also soft foods, which tend to
gormandizing from deficient mastlca-
llou and too hasty eating. No wine,

should bo used. At meals even the use
of water should bo restricted. Exorcise should be taken in tbe open air

"Greensleeves" Is a good old English
ballad aud tune mentioned by Shakespeare lu the "Merry Wives of Windsor" and bas been a favorite since tbe
Intter part of the sixteenth century.
The tune Is much older than the words,
probably as old as the dayt of Henry
VTI'I, It Is also known as "The Blacksmith" and "Tbe Brewer" and was a
great favorite with tbe cavaliers. A
mollified version Is found In the "Beggars' Opera." The tune ls still sung to
"Christmas comes but once a year"
and many other songs of the same
rhythm or with the burden "Which nobody can deny."

At an examination for admission te

While the woman of fashion may go
slowly in the matter of accumulating
tailor costumes at the beginning of the
season, she is emphatic as to the variety and smartness of her hats, trusting to them to give her toilet the requisite up to date freshness.
Parisians never absolutely abandon
the swell neat toque of folded velvet

have marked prominence in dross theso

The wonderful success of Dr.Chase's

asthma and the hard, dry cough of
bronchitis, and In positively curing
these ailments, ls the best proof tbat
It is far more than a mere "cough
ThiB well-known medicine is composed of a number of simple yet pow-
! erful ingredients, which are of proven
value in the cure of diseases of the
throat, bronchial tubes and lungs. It
Is prepared by a long and tedious process, that cannot be carried out in
filling a prescription at a drug store.
The ingredients are always fresh

"Fantastic" very well sums up the
general effects of the new headgear,
an effect obtained by means of the
trimming and the angle at which a hat
ls designed to be posed.
Certainly there will be much art required in the wearing of the present
chapeaux. Brims are still coqucttisbly
bent and curved, and the hat ls raised
by a bandeau at the back or side, perhaps both.
By way of novelty come the domed
crowns, which can hardly he considered pretty, and it remains to be seen
whether "smart" fashion will approve
cf them. Some large cavalier and
Henri Deux shapes there are, but the
tricorue, the marquise, the Tyrolean
and the watteau rank amoug the newer fancies.
The llrst cut shows a velvet bat trim
med with mauve roses and plume. The
second is a green beaver toque, with
velvet bows and a large buckle.
Velvet flowers are a feature In the
millinery of tbe moment, velvet roses
being especially charming.
Velvet, plush and silk beaver will all
be used for hats, some of tbem having
full crowns of rich embroidery tied lu
with velvet ribbons.
Cock's plumes, which are ln vogue for
the autumn, are likely to be largely
replaced by ostrich plumes, either tips
or one long, handsome feather, for winter. The ridiculously small chapeaux,
so trying to thin and full faces alike,
bave given place to a medium size, a
reasonable compromise for millinery
lu general between the very tiny affairs and the large picture structures.
Some new hats have tbe crown of
beaver and the brim of velvet, or vice
versa. To tbe proper poising of most
of tbe hats of the season, which arc,
after all, a sort of American modification of ultra French fancies, the
bandeau ls a necessary accompaniment,
and accordingly It may be said to figure on all hats.

What to Do to Relieve the Snfferlnc
Little  One.
During the first few months some babies are apt to huve uttneks of colic,
often caused by Indigestion. The child
screams sharply, draws up his legs,
and usually bas a bind, tense abdomen. First warm his hands aud feet
aud turn him on his stomach, letting
him He on a hot wnler bottle or hot
piece of flannel. Gently pat bis back
' to help up tbe wind and give blm a little hot water by menus of a uicdiciue
dropper. A few drops of essence of
peppermint mny be added to tbe water.  Do not give hiin gin or herb teas.
If the attacks are frequent, the food
ls probably too strong. Use less cream
or milk and more water when making
up tbe food, or, if the child is breast
fed, give an ounce of hot water Just
before nursing the baby. The mother's diet should nlso bo carefully regulated. She should tuke some exercise
out of doors lf possible and try not to
be nervous. Cereals, cocoa, milk, eggs,
gruels made of com and out meal, most
fresh fruits and vegetables, with some

Even now there are cities, big cities,
ln the middle west and south where
the cauliflower ls practically unknown.
And, though ln the neighborhood of
many large cities, such aa Chicago,
Boston and San Francisco, there are
extensive truck farms on which cauliflower ls grown for home consumption, there are, as an exchange tells the
story of cauliflower farming, but two
distinct "cauliflower districts" in the
whole United States where the vegetable ls extensively grown and shipped
to distant markets. These, curiously
enough, aro more than 2,400 mllta
apart, one along tho rich borders of
Puget sound, near the Pacific, and the
other In the low lying farm country In

In tbe I'ugct sound district tlie cauliflower has flourished since the railroads have opened up the territory,
and developed Its advantages as a
truck garden district Carloads o*
cauliflower are now shipped dally to
points along the I'nclflc coast and
towns to the eastward. Still more remarkable,' though, ls the cauliflower
growing district on northeastern Long

wide and about thirty miles long, extending from the little dip in the land

Aii Interesting Debate.
The Men's Debating Socioty of St.
Miclinel's Ohnroh hold a spirited debate
Monday evening on "Resolved, that
Ciliuulii should be Independent," Mr.
Wm. O'Dell, loader for the affirmative,
idvaucod some stroug arguments in
favor of Independence,, such ns, freedom
in regulating immigration, liberty of
notion in treaty making aud handling
questions of arbitration, nud gave a
few instances of England's lack of
attention to aconrtng closer trado relations with Canada. Mr. .1. Moyles,
leader for the negative side, maintained
that Canada had a freo baud iu the
regulation of immigration; as for treaty
making and questions of arbitration
Cauada would bo'helpless to accomplish
an object involved, citing Panama,
Hawaii und Philippine Islands as proof;
in preferential trudo relations wo have
tho advantage of preference in Empire
Mr. Bowers, for the affirmative, claimed Canada hail uo preference in trade
relations with England or' any of tlio
Colonies, and Quoted the results of the
rocont elections in Great Britiau ns u
proof that preferential tnrilt' was a
doud issue, and irom a trado standpoint
Canada gained nothing by being depend:
cut upou Euglnnd; with regard to immigration he was possitivo that the
poorest came to Cauada whilo those
with niouey went to the States; tho
people in England and other nut Urns
thought little of Cauada beoau_. of its
being a colony and uot a nation. Mr. A.
Sykcs, who closed the negative side,
contended that independence would
mean tho uuiintcuiiiice of an army,
navy und consular service, whicll would
mean burdensome taxation, consequent
ly the country would lose credit and no
capital would bo invested iu its development. Mr. O'Dell, iu closing tho
debate, cited the Wnr of 1H12 as proof
that Cauada could tuke caro of herself
if independent, and that ihe recent
prononucomi'iit in Britiau agaiust preferential tariff wns also proof of the
fitlaey of tho advantage of preferential
trade within the Empire. The jiuh.es,
Messrs. G. Bonlt, B. Moyles and R. S
CuDimings, brought in a verdict iu
favor of the negative. This was the
first time tiueo tho Society bus been
