Vane filled bis liquor glass. "I sup-
pom so.' be answered, slowly. Then,
wlCh-his characteristic abruptness, be
stfld: "See. here, .1 uliun. M.v turning

Inconvenient to you. I—1 want to

upon my life 1 don't quite know how
to. Do you mind telling me something about yourself, your—your
moans?" lie faltered and looked Bt
the table and round the woll-furnlsh-
ed though weird and rather sombre
room.' "I don'l want to play thu inquisitive business you know, but—"
Julian laughed at his cousin's embarrassment.
"You have a particularly transparent mind, mv dear Vane," he said in
his soft voire. "I know exactly whnt
you are going to do. You arc going
to offer to—make it up to me for the
loss of my expectations. Is it not
"That's about hit It," assented
Vane in his direct fashion.
"I thought so!" suid Julian with
his charmingly candid smile. "You
would ofler mc an allowance, an in-
"That's so," assented Vane. 'Why
Bhouldn't 1? I'm immensely, beastly
rich, I believe, ond if I hadn't turned
up you would hove been the Earl of
As he pronounced the title Julian
Shore's lids quivered, but tho smile
was still hovering about bis lips.
"As it is," went on Vane, "you are
the next in succession, tho heir. I
shan't marry—you shake your head,
but I know whnt I am saying—and
you will come into it all. Why
shouldn't you accept an income, allowance, from nie? If vou were my
'brother or son you would have to do
Julian shook his shapely head
"Hut I'm not your brother or your
son; I'm only your cousin. And—we
are speaking candidly, are we not?—I
do not like the role ot a dependent.
No! I will not take a penny from
"You are an awful fool," put in
Vane in his blunt way.
"Perhaps. But I have a small but
sufficient Income: enough for a bachelor, and 1 value mv independence:"
No! I refuse your money; but—but if
you offer your friendship, your ullec-
tion, may I say—"
Vane exteuded his hand.
"Put it that way," he said, gravely. "Blood is thicker than water.
.Set here, we will go down to Lesborough to-morrow. 1 as the earl and
master, you as the heir apparent—1
think that's the way they describe
it. We'll be friends. Julian—What on
earth is that peculiar scent, odor,
which hangs about this room?" he
broke off to enquire.
Julian, looked round absently, then
smiled  and shrugged  his shoulders.
"J. am rather fond of dabbling in
chemistry. My father had a like
taste; it was one of the reasons for
his rupture with the late earl. His
Lordship could nol understand how
a Mannering could interest himself In
such a commonplace subject. I use
the room next this as a kind of laboratory.   Come and see."
He arose and going to the door
opened it and stood aside for Vane
to enter.
Vane looked in. It wos a small
room lighted by a window with a
screen of yellow silk. There was a
strange looking fireplace with crucibles and retorts, and there were tables and shelves on which were books
and chemical upparati.
Ynne glanced round with faint interest; he was not scientific by any
"Rum      fancy,"     he       remarked.
"What's the good of it?"
Julian shrugged liis shoulders.
"Oh,   I  don't  know.    Not  much,   I
suppose.     But   it   ummes   me.     Now
you, I Imagine, go in for sport?"
Vano nodded.
"Yes; sport of any and every kind.
If I remember rightly, there was not
much hunting or shooting at Lesborough."
"The lute earl starved it—so Mr.
Tressider snub"
/'Quito so. Well, I'll alter that, at
any rate," said Vane. "What's that
thing on the lire? I fancy it's that
that smells so?"
Julian Shore lifted a -fteel pot   or
kettle  from  the slowly-burning lire.
"Oh, only an experiment," he said.
He led the way bark to the sitting-
room.    "Are you  fond of music?" he
asked in a casual wu.V.    "I'm no performer,   but I'm  a  splendid   listener.
You piny, or sing?    Lot's hear you!"
Julian   pushed  a  cigar   cabinet    to
Vane, then, with n gesture of apology
and     scli'-depri'cint inn,    went   to   tho
pioini nnd struck a prelude of chords
.    aAil sang.
,,i' Vnnc   listened   with   rapt   attention
and admiration.
"My dear fellow, you'ro almost
good  cuougli   for  grand   opvra!"    he
■aid. "You've got a devil of a
"My lnotner sung w-cll, I believe,"
said Julian, modestly.
Vane, who wns as sensitive to
music as a cobra, heaved a sigh; for
tho soft, dulcet strain had brought
back the island to him. "I must be
going. My friends, thu 1_etchfords—
I'm staying with tliem—will wonder
what the devil has become of mu.
Well, it's fixed; you and 1 go down
to Lcsboroiigli to-morrow, What's
th* train, uo vou know?"
Julian knew. Had he not looked It
up ln I'rndslinw when ho tbougbt hu
should be the next earl?
"Ton-fifty," he suid, "from Waterloo."
Vane held out his band and gripped the soft, white one warmly.
"Right.   We'll go down  together."
Julian accompanied him lo tho
door und stood thoro watching the
stalwart figure as it Strode nwny.
Then he mounted to the sitting-i'ooiu.
The old woinun was clearing the
luncheon things, and she stopped nnd
looked at ber master quest ioningly.
But he mentioned to ber to go, und
sinking into a chair leaned bis handsome head on his bund.
Presently his thin, crimson lips
moved, unit he murmured:
"Only    him betweeu   me aud     ■«•
earldom, betweet me and wealth—
wealth! And he is not married. A
young man like myself. Only hiin!
If anything were to happened to
him— But it won't. He'll live to be
ninety. It's just like my luck, to bo
within an uce of a peerage and miss
it. 1 feel like cursing him I'or all his
good-natured oiler of friendship. But
cursing wouldn't kill him. If it
There came a hissing soung Irom
the laboratory, as if something were
boiling over, and he sprang to his
feet .und ran eagerly into the nuxt
room, as if ho had forgotten Vano
und the lost earldom.
Vane, as he walked away from
Julian's house, was in a peculiar
state of mind. He felt drawn towards his cousin; blood is thicker
than water; and Vane had been
touched by the way iu whicll Julian
hud accepted liis disappointment and
had proffered his friendship to tho
man who hnd crushed his hopes of a
peerage. Hut there was something
about Julian—his weird place of
abode, his taste for chemistry, and
indifference to the awful odor arising
from his experiments—which jarred
upon Vane, somothing in the expression of his dark eyes, the sudden
drooping of the lids, wliich militated
against the favorable impression
created by the handsomo face and
graceful form.
Vane shrugged his shoulders.
"I'm a fanciful beast; and my nerves are rags," he said to himself.
"Anyway, I've got to make the best
of him. He's thl only relative I
know, and he'll be the next earl;
I shall never marry. I'll make a
friend of him, treat him as the heir."
The reflection sent him off on the
old track, and as he strode along he
thought of Nina. Though he was
convinced that she had been lost, he
had, for weeks after his arrival in
London, sought amongst the shipping companies for tidings of a castaway, but, chancing to miss the
owners of tha Island Queen, ne did
not hear of the picking up of the girl
tied to a portion of a raft. Yes, she
was dead, and he had been spared
that he might spend the remainder of
his life in futile remorse and regret.
Quite heedless of tho direction in
wliich he was going, ho sauntered on,
and presently, awaking from his reverie, he found himself in Piccadilly,
at the entrance to Hyde Park. He
turned In absently and strolled towards the Row. It was the fashion-
able hour of the day and the place
was crowded, and Vane lit another of
Julian's cigars and, leaning on the"
rall, surveyed the riders as they
passed him, The walk was thronged
with pronfenade'rs; and little groups
of friends and acquaintances were
chatting and laughing together, making a pleasant little hum and buzz
which, pleasant as it was, made
Vane feci very lonely.
Some of the voices were so distinct
that they reached his car. He listened mechanically and heard a man
who was talking with some ladies
"Yes, she's Just gone past. Looks
wonderfully well and fit, doesn't
"It's the first time she has put in
an appearance since his death, isn't
it? What a terrible blow and—disappointment it must have been to
her! Think of missing being a marchioness! And so narrowly! Most
girls would have been utterly crushed."
"But not she," drawled the man.
"She's a good plucked one. Y'es,
she's missed tho marquis, but I
shouldn't wonder if she goes for a
duke next time.   There she is again."
"Yes, there she is," said the lady.
"I suppose that black habit is for
Vane was turning away when his
eye fell on a lady who was riding
slowly towards him. It would have
boon difficult for him not to have
noticed her, for she was an extremely
beautiful woman, and sho was riding
a superb horse which she sat with a
perfect ease that the restless movements of tht high-spirited animal did
not in the least appear to disturb.
By her sido were riding two or three
men; and as she pulled up close to
tho railing just above • where Vane
was standing, other men pressed up
to the spot, snatching ofl their hats
and evidently eager to attract her
attention and exchange a word or
two with her, while every one who
rode or walked past her, whether
they know her or not, regarded her
intently and with evident  interest.
After all, and with a duo regard
to the claims of other nationalities,
is thero anything in the wide world
more moving and heart stirring than
a lienutifu! young English girl? And
this was ono of the loveliest of the
typo. She sat erect on her thoroughbred, with her faco full in the sunlight that lit up the exquisite col^r
of her thick hair of bronze and gold,
which the gontle breeze had blown in
Boft rings over her forehead. Her
eyes shono like sapphires in the clear
ivory of hor face, and her lips, as
perfectly formed as those of a Grecian statue, wore curved with a pensive smile. When she was alone the
sapphire eyes wore apt to grow cold
and a trifle hard—ono hesitates to
write "calculating"—and the lips,
without their smile, narrowed and
lost their exquisite curve—but in public botli the well-trained eyes and
lips were on duty, so to speak, and
took upon thom any and every expression which their owner willed.
As Vano looked at her his heart
gave one bound, then seemed to fall
into an almost unnatural calm, a
calm which made him marvel at himself; for not so long since the sight
of this face, the sound of this girl's
voico had never failed to send tho
blood racing through his veins.
Quito unreflectingly ho remained
whero he was, leaning on the rail
watching hor with moody eyes which
expressed the dead calm and indifference which had fallen on him; and
whon, after a moment or two, she
nodded her adieux to the group—the
membera of which had all the attitude   __ad _B«uucrl  el  courtiers—•*.»
touching her horse movod towards
him, ho still leaned over tho rails
and waited for her. She was almost
abreast of him before she saw him,
for she was bowing, with the pensive
smile, to some friends on the other
side of the ride, but it would havu
been well nigh impossible for any
one to have passed his stalwart figure and handsome face, with their indefinable air of distinction, without
noticing him, and presently her
glance fell on him.
The sapphire eyes contracted nnd
closed for a moment, the ivory of
her face went a dead white, the smile
fled from her lips and her hand involuntarily closed so tightly on the
rein that the horse stopped and tossed his head impatiently.
Sho was so close to Vane that he
could see the quiver of the lips, the
flicker of the lids which had dropped over thu brilliant eyes. He stood
upright and, regarding her with tlie
calmness which still vaguely surprised himself, raised his hat.
She  bent   her     head   and    her  lips
moved,  but at   first with no sound,
then she said in a low.  still voico'

Raise What's Wanted.
Few really intelligent a_d"pro-
gresslve farmers are heard complaining. The wise man is he who
keeps hlmBelf ever on the alert to
produce that commodity for which
there is a good strong, quick market.
There are several ways ln which
the cash returns from the farm may
be largely increased without the sacrifice of much time, money or work.
For Instance, the raising of poultry
haB come to be a great profit-making
business on some farms.
Now, a few years ago this end of
the fanning business was scarcely
worth bothering with. The farmer's
wife set a few hens, raised a few
chicks and sold a few eggs, but the
whole thing didn't amount to much
and never was counted on to help
pay the Interest or swell the bank
Now, however, conditions have
changed. There is a strong, steady
and ever-Increasing 'demand for chicks
as broilers. City hotels, restaurants,
cafes, dining cars and private kitchens are consuming more aud more
every day, to say nothing of the tons
and tons required to fill the export
demand. Dealers cau never get
enough to supply the wants of their
customers, and thousands and
thousands moro could be Bold at good
prices — they were offered.
A few farmers have been wise enough to see what was going on and
to prepare to profit by these conditions. Broilers are wanted and good
cash prices are being paid for every
chick large enough to be made ready
for the table. Then why not produce
Several difficulties arise. Hens as
hatchers are failures. They set when
they take a notion and seldom when
you want them to. They are careless
mothers, almost always leading their
chicks into danger and losing many
To make any progress or profit ln
the raising of chicks you must have
a good incubator and Brooder, and
this initial expenditure may prevent
those who are not prepared to lnstal
such a machine.
With a good Incubator and brooder
any fanner's wife can raise chicks
so as to make a handsome annual
cash revenue. You should get one at
once and go Into the raising of chicks.
All you need ls a small yard, eggs
and the machine.
By the way, there's a Arm In
Chatham, Ont, who are advertising
an Incubator and brooder and who
offer to send lt prepaid and wait for
the monoy till after 1906 harvest.
This offer is worth inquiring about.
If you will write a post card with
your name and address to the Manson
Campbell Co.,  Dept.   ,  Chatham,
they will doubtless send full particulars of their offer.

How Dew Forms.
' Dew was formerly supposed to fall
softly from the heavens, and to this
belief mny be escribed many current
aud poetical phrases; but dew does
not fall in the exact meaning of the
term. The condensation of wntery
vnpor follows upon tho chilling of tha
air. This ls seen as the earth cools
toward night, and it tnkes plnee most
rapidly near the ground. Grass and
other vegetation cools more rapidly
than the air above lt. The air ln contact with plants is thus chilled nnd deposits Its moisture upon the leaves of
tho plants ln dew. When the chilling
of tho air proceeds further, the moisture may be precipitated to a considerable height above the earth's surface,
and it then becomes what we call fog.

Padded Coachmen.
In Russia it Is a mark of distinction
for a coachman to have a very rotund
figure. The drivers of fashionable carriages appear at first to be abnormally
stout. As n matter of fact this appearance, according to Burton Holmes,

coachman's livery. The padding is

Take Care of Yonr Teeth.
All decay of tbe teeth begins from
without. Consequently if the teeth's
surfaces be kept scrupulously clean
they cannot decay. Let the child early
acquire the habit of using a small
toothbrush dipped into chalk flavored
with some aromatic drug, and let it understand that tbe places most needing
the brush are those between the teeth.
Tbnt is the place where decay almost
Invariably appears. Mucous secretions
and secretions of food are always founj
between the teelh after a meal. They
may be removed with a toothpick. I
is almost an art to use a toothpick.
One must beware of injuring the fleshy
parts and leaving splinters, which In
somo «uses may cause the loss of a
tooth. Metal toothpicks should bo altogether avoided. Those of dull and
hard wood are best.—London Lancet

preparing them. They cnn be fried after their legs and wings have been
plucked off, which was, as a matter of
fact, the process adopted In this particular Instance, or they may be powdered and baked Into cakes or curried
or boiled, turning red, like lobsters, ln
the process.
The wood louse sauce lf properly
made with fresh butter, flour, milk,
pepper and salt will be found fully
equal to shrimp, which It much resembles lu taste. Indeed the wood louse,
although he lives on land, is flrst cousin to that much relished crustneeun.

their grubs when full grown. They j

Curious   Wnys  of Crabs.
Certnln species of crubs cover themselves with seaweed in order to deceive their foes. One crab wns seen by
the naturalist Eisig ln 1878 to pluck
off zoophytes, those plantlike nnlmnl
colonies which grow on shells nnd
stones, und to fix them on the spines
nnd hnlrs of its shell. A still deeper
romance of defensive tactics Is to be
found In the ense of certnln hermit
crabs. They live In tlie castoff shells
of whelks nnd crawl nbout, house on
bnck. One claw ls bigger than the other, nnd this is nn ndnptlve fenture, for
when the u»ab retires Into Its house
the bigger claw is tucked across the
mouth of the shell to bar the way
against a possible intruder. More curious still Is the habit of one species
which toils along with a sea nnemone
fixed to his shell, like Sindbad currying
the Old Man of the Sea. Grent care ls
tnken of this nnemone. It ls fed by
the crab, nnd lf the latter hns to seek
a new shell by reason of his growth

The Distant Stars.
Speaking roughly, we huve renson,
from the data so fnr available, to believe that the stars of the Milky Wny
are sltunted nt a distance between
100,000,000 nnd 200,000,000 times the
distance from the suu. At distances
less than this it seems likely that the
stars nre distributed through space
with some approach to uniformity. We
may stale as n general conclusion Indicated by seveni] methods of making
the estlmnte thut nenrly nil the stars
which we cnn Bee with our telescopes
nre contained within a sphere not likely to be much more thnn 200,000,000
times the distance of the sun.
Granting that nil the stars we can
see are contuiued within this limit,
may there not be any number of stars
without the limit which are Invisible
ouly because tbey are too far away to
be seen?—Simon Newcomb In Harpar's

How the Game Was Flayed In Ven*
Ice Several Centuries Aro.
A book published at Venice In 1555
by Antonio Scaino relates methods of
play in a real football thnt wns actually called by the same name. The field
"was so large that no one, however
strong, could quite throw a stone from
one end to the other," nnd It wns nbout
hnlf ns wide. Twenty, thirty or forty
persons could participate on a side, tbe
uumber being regulated by the size of
the available field. Goals were set up
at either end. No one was permitted to
strike the ball with the outstretched
arm or with anything he might carry
in his hand. Nevertbeless he wss par
mltted to "strike the ball wlik whatever part of his body that ha pleased."
If the ball enme rolling • toward him
he was nllowed to kick it, the inference being that if It were lying still he
could not do so. The field was divided
by a transverse line "into two equal
parts, and In tbe middle lay the ball.
The players were chosen, those who
were going to mnke up the opposing
parties, by means of colors, by which,
In the struggle of the contest, each
could recognize his own side. When
the signal was given by the roll of the
drum or the blast of a trumpet a player rushed forwnrd, one who hnd been
chosen by lot to be the first to kick the
ball with his foot. This action was un-
dei-stood to be the beginning of the
contest, so that nfter It It wns permitted to no one from cither party to seize
It, to strike It end to drive It as victor
over tha goal. It was perhaps from
the method of beginning the game that
It was called football."
These Italian games had their origin
ln the ancient pastimes of the Greeks
and Romans, nnd ln renllty approach
nearer to the modern Idea of football
than do the beginnings of the gnme ln
northern countries. Football Is believed by some authorities to hnve been a
portion of the worship of the Celtic
sun god, one of the rites nttendnut on
the celebrative ceremonies. Some nlso
hold a strong belief that Its original
form was introduced into England by
the Romans— Dennie P. Meyers in

Why   the   Lady   of   the   House   Was

A lady recently called at the house
of a friend, who answered in person
the ring at the door. With careworn
expression and flurried manner she
apologized for the confusion that apparently reigned in the house, saying:
"My parlor maid ls upstnlrs ill—not

What Occurs When a Child la Taught
Orally and Without Explanations—
Dr. Macnamara, M. P., Gives Some
Remarkable Examples in His Work,
"Schoolroom Humor" — Some Ab-
aurd and Amusing Stories.
Dr. Macnamara, M. P., ln his hook,
"Schoolroom Humor," has _-__-4e * col-
lcctlca at 9—IMrerfs _»„t«1_es and ab-
swrditles which Is very amusing. Some
of the stories are examples of unconscious satire; such, for instance, ls that
of the case of the boy who said that
"the marriage customs of the ancient
Greeks were that a man had only one
wife, and this Was called monotony."
Other stories show us the working
of a child's mind ln the way ln which
lt has been taught. For example, a
boy who had learned his "Duty Towards God" orally, betne asked to write
lt down, produced tha following: "My
duty toads God Is to bleed ln Him, to
ferlng and to loaf wlthold your arts,
wlthold my mine, wlthold my sold, and
with ray sernth to wlrchp and jglve
thanks, to put my old trash ln Him."
This example Is fifty years old, but
the book contains more modern results
of bad teaching.
Thus, a child wrote down this version of the tenth commandment: "Thou
Shalt not curat thy neighbor's house,
thous shalt not cumt thy neighbor's
wife, mornln' circus, mornln' 'oss,
mornln' ass, nor anything that ls his."
Many of the answers in the book show
that the children bad been taught mere
Isolated Ita—ia of Information, which
they supposed to have no object except to provide questions in school. In
such cases what ls learned ts only
A child, being asked to name the
chief mountains in Scotland, answered:
"Ben Nevis, Ben Lomond and Ben
Jonson." Dr. Macnamara thinks that
girls aro more conscientious than boys,
and see sooner what Is expected of
A boy, being asked "Who was Guy
FawkesT" replied: Guy Forks Is a
man made by another man," whereas
a girl said: "Guy Fawkes was a man
who tried to destroy Parliament."
A child was asked to think of a creature that wriggles about ln the earth
and sometimes comes to the top through
a hole. "A worm," replied the child.
He was asked to think of another
creature with the same habits, and cried
ln triumph, "Another worm." Lessons
to that boy were a kind of gome of
question and answer.
Some other questions and answers
follow: "What Is a celestial pole?" "A
heavenly perch." "What ls poetry?"
"Poetry Is when every line begins with
a capital letter." A child wrote of an
Imaginary expedition to the north pole
"At last we reached tha north pole.
We sailed Into the harbor and went te
see the town."
In an account of the Salvation Army
a child wrote of the women: "They
have names on their hats like sailors.
They make a deal of noise; the worsod
two ls called captain and lcftennajit."
Another child defined a nib, as "the
thing there Isn't when you buy a pen,"
while still another youngster described
a flshlng-net as "a lot of little holes
Joined together by a bit of string."
A teacher after explaining the use
of the hyphen asked a boy why there
was a hyphen ln "bird-cage." The boy
answered: "It is for the bird to perch
on. sir." That boy, Dr. Macnamara
says was among the dunces, but lt
was probably because he was more Interested ln birds than in hyphens. His
answer showed he had a trick of learn
ing things for himself.

The late Dr. George Macdonald was
noted for his kindness. He once went
Into a chapel at Malvern, records a biographer, and was distressed beyond endurance at the worn aspect of the dispirited preacher. When the service was
over he told the preacher that It was
high time he took a holiday, and that
It was his duty to do so. He was met
by the statement that It was Impossible. He asked that the officers of the
church should be summoned. When
they came ln he revealed his Identity,
and described himself as a preacher
out of harness, but prepared to take
there and then the conduct of the service for the next month. But now a
fresh difficulty arose; the gratified minister had nowhere to go, so George
Macdonald told him that this was easily settled. He could go to his owa
house at the seaside; and so the compact was settled.
On another occasion fsays the same
correspondent), he went Into a shop In
the town ln which he then resided, and
seeing at a glance that the girl who
served him looked fragile and 111, he
enquired the cause. She was standing
at the counter all day, and nursing a
sick mother overnight. "Then," aaid
he, "I will Just send one of my own

Employees ln the linen room receive
$20 a month, with room and board, and
tbelr hours are well regulated, tn most
of the large hotels. The parlor maid
or maids come next on the salary list
with $18, room and board, and the tips
often bring tliis sum up to $30 or even
$50. The maid's duties are to keep the
parlor swept and dusted and herself
tidy and ready to attend the women
guests who desire her services. The
chambermaids, bathroom girts, pelnt
cleaners and scrub women, of whom
every hotel employs a small army, receive $12 each. The work of the last two
named Is distinctly different. A scrub
woman would not think of cleaning
paint and n pnlnt cleaner would feel
that she was demennlng herself ln
scrubbing the floor. Throughout the

makes new, pure, rich blood. By
making new blood Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills sharpen the appetite, soothe the
worried nerves, regulate the h _lth.
They banish paleness, clear the com
plexlon, bring rosy cheeks and ..park-
ling eyes. They give plenty of strong
blood for all the delicate functions of
womanhood. Miss Mary Jackson,
Normandale, Ont, says: "For upwards of throe years I suffered from
anaemia. I grew so weak I oould
scarcely walk about the house. I hnd
no color ln my face, my lips and
gums were bloodless- I suffered from
headaches and dlzzlness.and fell away
ln weight until I weighed only 94
pounds. No treatment gave me the

a few weeks after beginning the pills
I began to grow better, and they Boon

Some Hints That May Prove of Value
to the Apiarist.
Although bees are not active In winter, yet the beekeepers will always
find work to perform. Colonies outdoors should have an entrance contracted to about 3-8x3 or 4 Inches.
This Is apt to become clogged with
dead bees, which the apiarist should
rake out on warm days with a bent
wire. He must be careful not to raise
the wire too high and thus disturb the
cluster of bees within.
If snow closes the entrance, the bees
may smother. Some beekeepers claim
that snow contains a Jpt of air and Is
an excellent protection. Yet I prefer
to sweep or shovel it away from the
entrance, as I think this good practice, writes F. A. Strosheln in Orange
Judd Farmer. I do not clean lt away
from the other sides of the hive, but
just tbe reverse. I set some boards or
boxes against the hives and shovel the
space full of snow. This helps to retain
the warmth and keep oft the piercing
Whenever I work with the bees ln
cold weather, I take special pains not
to bump the hives; for If the bees are
thus disturbed, somo will leave .the
cluster and become chilled. The colony
cannot afford to lose a single bee during winter or spring, for at this time
of the year a bee ls worth more than
three or four ln the summer months.
If mice are allowed access to the
hives they will do some damage by
gnawing the combs and annoying the
bees," but will probably not kill a colony outright Wire cloth, four meshes
to the Inch, will keep them out but
not hinder the free passage of the
bees. Hives wintered ln the cellar, unlike those outdoors, Bhould have a
large entrance, never clogged with
dead bees. A piece of stiff paper, the
size of the inside of the bottom board
shoved under the bees or frames, facilitates the removal of dead bees. It
Is eaBlly removed, cleaned and replaced.
Bees ought not to be disturbed without reason ln winter, but lf a shortage
of stores is suspected, examination
may be made and the need supplied.
With a candle for light, the cover is
removed and the eye run quickly over
the tops of the frames. If plenty of
sealed honey ls seen, the hive must
be closed at once. If to be fed, a super
ls put on and some quarter-Inch strips
of wood laid on the tops of tho frames.
Liquid feed must be avoided during
winter, for it stirs the bees to greater
activity. Brood rearing results and the
colony may suffer from diarrhoea or
spring dwindling. Sections of honey
may be placed on top of the quarter-
inch strips, with sealed surface toward
the bees. Should no sections of honey
be at hand, there can be candy made
of granulated sugar, dissolved with as
little warm water as possible. The
solution is set on the stove and boiled
until lt will harden when cooled Into
a solid cake. To test lt, a little may be
dropped Into cold water. When dono,
lt ls poured Into pans lined with paper. •

Poultry raising pays,
People who tell you that thero is no
money in raising* chicks may have tried
to make money in the business by using
setting hens as hatchers, and they
might as well have tried lo locate a
gold mine in the cabbage patch. The
business of a hen is—to lay egg's. As
a hatcher and brooder she is outclassed. Thai's the business of the
Chatham Incubator and Brooder, and
they do it perfectly and successfully.
The poultry business, properly conducted, pays far better than any other
business for the amount of time and
money invested.
Thousands of poultry-raisers—men
and women all over Canada und the
United States—have proved to their
satisfaction that it is profitable to raise
chicks with the

Everyone knows that for anything!
to become known, it must be talked!
about.     For  an  article    to    becomel
popular its virtue must be made the j
subject   of  a   public     announcement.!
That   is   advertising!     Consequently
if the  survival  of the Attest  applies
to  business   principles  as   well  as   il)
does to other walks of life, the bet-i
ter   the   advertising—the   better    the
publicity—the     better     the     results^
Good  results  mean    good    business T
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
