Dentistry as we practice it is a serious profession,
involving education, carefulness and skill. Therefore we can not coin-
pete in prices with the ignorant, tbo careless or the unskillful. Comparison will show, however, that wo charge less than half as much as
most private practionors.
But you ask, Is the work as good? We reply, it

That a long felt want in Vancouver, an Academy managed by ladies,
will be supplied, was evidenced by Che
large gathering of ladies and children
who filled Pender .Hall on Saturday
afternoon last to welcome Mrs. M.
Lester, of Victoria, B. C, who has
opened a select Dancing Academy in
the spacious hall. Complimentary
remarks were heard on all sides upon
the graceful dancing of the pupils
wliich Mrs. Lester brought with her
from Victoria Academy, to give exhibitions of both ball room and fancy
dancing. The skirt dance by little
Dorothy Lester and Mildred Sarginni
was greatly enjoyed, a graceful Spanish dnnce by Mrs. M. Sargison and
Miss Ethel Smith received well merited applause, and the Highland fling
by Mrs E. Smith pleased so well that
it had to be given a second time. A
clear and concise demonstration of
the Dodsworth System of New York,
was given by Mrs. Lester and clearly
proved her right to be known as the
only Professional lady teacher of
dancing in either Vancouver or Victoria. The introduction of the new
three-step or "Portland Dip" brought
a delightful two hours to a close. Mrs.
Lester will be pleased to welcome
visitors every Saturday afternoon
from 2 to 4 o'clock. Miss Isabel
Mac Lean will be assistant in charge
and will shortly enter into partnership with Mrs. Lester.

Continued from last week.
For a couple of dnys the weather
remained fine, then the wind changed
and grew rough. His cramped position, the solitude of the sea and tho
glare of its sun-flecked surface, which
produced an almost intolerable burning of the eyes, began to tell upon
him. His small supply of water was
rapidly diminishing, and he had to
put himself on short rations.
On the fourth duy be caught himself holding snatches of conversation
with Nina, but shook himself and
tried to pull himself together; but
again nnd uguin he relapsed into
this form of delirium, and when the
trading schooner, I'.l'fcu Anne, bound
for the port ol London, almost run
down tho ce.noe, it. picked up a half
crazy man -who laughed and cried in
a breath and implored the captain
with frantic gestures und broken accents, to put the ship nbout and
search  for  "Nino."
The captain *.as a good-hearted
fellow, and, thinking that there
might be a ba»is of reason in the
castaway's ravings, he hove about
for somo tin.!! in the lutitudo in
which the can-30 had been found, but
he came acroffl nothing to reward his
humanity and while Mannering was
prostrated In his bunk with brain
fever, the Eliza Anne got on her
course agai^i und made for London.
Throe months later Mannering wus
one night wandering along the
Strand. It was just after eleven and
the theatres were pouring out their
crow-is into the already congested
thoroughfare. Mannering had not
reached London destitute, for, all unconsciously, he hnd brought with him
the small amount of money he had
with him on the Alpina; but he had,
sinco hi? disembarkation, lived with
little rjgard for comfort or appearances: and as ho moved slowly with
the crowd he looked, in his old serge
suit and weather-stained cap, so
much like a tramp that now and
again the policemen eyed him with
something like suspicion and one had
actually bidden him "move on."
Mannering obeyed mechanically,
looking neither to the right nor the
left, but drifting aimlessly with the
crowd which surged along tho wet
puvoment. The crush, the noise of
the rabs and carriages, the shouts
of th* 'bus conductors and the tulk
and laughter of the people acted as
a narcotic and soothed him after a
fashion. But in the midst of the turmoil he could hear the boom of the
sea on the sands of the island and
hear Nina's voico calling to him
"Dinner is ready!" or "Will you
bring nie some wood for the fire?"
and the commonplace phrases took
to themselves a mystic, sacred, significance.
Presently he found himself brought
up rgains't the Gaiety Theatre. The
peoplo were just streaming out and
Mannering was standing by a lamp
post waiting for an opportunity to
go on, nud, looking absently at the
beautifully dressed women and the
"smart" men omerging from tho illuminated doorway when one of tho
gentlemen said:
"Hi, niy man, will you get a cab
for us?"
Mannering looked round and saw
that tho request was addressed to
him by a gentleman by whom a lady
richly dressed was standing. A
grtm sense of humor seized Mannering, for he knew them bolh. and he
forced his way dowu the street and
got a cab.
"Thanks!" said tbe gentleman, and
he held out a shilling; then, as Munnering laughed mirthlessly, the gentleman threw up his heutl and looked
at the supposed cab-runner, and
broke Into a low exclamation ol
"Manneringl Good Heaven!" he
cried; and before Mannering could reply or rtep away, tho gentleman
caught hfm by the arm antl, turning
to the lady, said in eager consternation:
"Blanche, it Is Mannering! Get into tho cab; I'll follow."
Ho still kept his grip of Mannering's arm, and when the lady, too
startled to do anything but stnro nt
tho pair, had gone, he called another cab nnd almost pushed Mannering
toward it.
"Get ln. get In, for Heaven's sake!"
he said. "Why, Mannering. you, and
here in London, and in this—this
slate! Why, we all thought you'd
gone to Australia. We've been searching for you. What's happened?
You're 111, nnn't you? Where have
you been? What— But you shan't
answer any questions till I get you
Mnnnering guzed before hiin at tho
crowd with Its canopy of umbrellas,
tho Hashing, ever moving lights ol
tho cabs and carriages. This ninn's
voice was like a voice from the life
of the past—the past he had left bo-
"I was wrecked, Letch ford," ho
snld, hoarsely, as if he hud only just
been picked up in the canoe.
Sir Charles Lelchford looked at
him keenly, curiously, and not u little pityingly.
"Wrecked! But, no, you sha'n't
tell me till wo get home. Havo a
cigar,  old chap!"
It wns a subtly wise and kind suggestion. Mannering's hand closed ue
tho cigar, nnd lighting it he leant
back und smoked himself into calmness; he had not been able to afford
a cigar for the last fortnight.
Tho cab drew up at one of the
handsome houses in Slonne Court
nnd Sir Charles led Mannering Into
the dining-room. It wus as exquisite as modern taste and lavish
expenditure could make It. sir Charles looked round.
"Blanche— Vou remember her?
Wo were married two months ago—"
Mannering nodded In nn absent way,
and Sir Charles sennned him, aghast.
"She hns gone to her room. Come
to my dressing-room nntl havo a
wush. Supper is laid. Tho servants
have gone to bed."
He took Munnering to his dressing-
room, then went into the bed-room
to Lady Lctchford.
"Great heaven, Blanchel" he exclaimed. "I scarcely know hlin! I
took him for a tramp.   Tha man bag
aged, is broken down—looks as if
he were drugged! Vou remember
what he was!"
"Poor fellow! Oh, yes, I remember! Of course I roniomber. Hid—did
you tell him, Charles?" she asked in
a low voice.
"No! There hasn't been time! He's
washing bis bunds. Vou must help
me,  Blanche,   I'll go to him!"
He found Munnering seated nt tho
dressing-table absently fingering the
silver-backed brushes, and took him
down to the dining-room. Ladj
lilnnche, in the splendor of her evening dress, came to meet him cordially but half foarfully, for there was a
strange, hunted, strained look in h s
"1 am so glad to see you back, Mr.
Mannering. And of course you remember me—lilnnche Fuvnsoin"—she
blushed as sho gave her niuiden-
name—"Judith Ormc's grout friend,
you know."
Mannering's eyelids flickered us ho
bent over her hand.
"1 remember," he said in the deep,
hollow voice with which he hatl spoken since the day of his great loss.
"Sit down," said Letchford, with
a warning glanco at his wife, a
glance that said, "Let him alono for
a time; leave him to me."
Mannering did not look down at
his unsuitable attire, did not appear
conscious of himself or his surroundings, but sank into the chair 'and
accepted a plate of tho soup which
had been kept warm at the fireplace.
"Rattling good pieco at tho
Gaiety," said Lctchford; and ho went
on to spoak of it, addressing his
wife rather than Mannering, and
studiously avoiding looking at him.
Munnering got through his soup
and somo cutlets in silence, glancing
in tho same absent-mi ndod, preoccupied way at his host and beautiful hostess. Presently Lady Blancho
roso, but her husband signed to hor
to remain,
"Don't go, Blanche," he said with
tho nervousness of tho man who relics on his wife in dillicult moments.
"Wo want to have a chnt with Vane.
Now, old chap"—he leaned forward
and laid his hand on Mannering's
arm—"tell  us your adventures!"
Mannering looked from ono to tha
otner, first with a kind of suspicion,
then blankly, and he sighed, the sigh
of a man who has been living to himself for months.
"Adventures? I haven't hnd any.
Ah, yes; I was wrecked. The Alpina
lost her course, struck and went
"Good Lord! And you—you wero
picked up?" exclaimed Letchforc".
Mannering was silent for a moment
thon ho said, as if mechanically,
"Yes; 1 was picked up!"
"Hut you Bufleieti a great deal? I
can see that you did. Vou—you look
the shadow of your former self,
Vano! Vou must have had a bad
"Yes—I suffered," assented Mannering, staring at tho table-cloth and
lingering his fruit-knife. "Oh, yes—
I suffered!"
"And was no one else saved?" asked I_ctchford.
"No—no one else was saved. She
—" His voice died away, and his
head sank on his bosom.
Lady Lctchford leant forward, all
tender pity and anxiety; but Lctchford rose and got somo cigars.
"Smoke, old man," ho said.
"Blanche doesn't mind; In fact, she
likes it."
Mannering took the cigar as eagerly as ho had taken tho one offered
him in the cob; and as ho smoked his
faco cleared of some of its gloom.
"And—and so you camo to London?" said Lctchford with seeming
I'lisiialiu'ss. "And havo you seen anyone, any of your people, tho Loa-
borough lawyer, anyone?"
"No, no one," said Mnnnering.
"That's—that's strange, and—and
it's a pity!"  murmured Lctchford.
Mannering raised his eyes. "Why?
Why should I seo them? I didn't
want money. I have somo still left."
He put his hand ln his pocket and
took out a few, a very few, shillings.
Letchford stilled an exclnmatipn.
"My dear fellow, my dear Vane!
Do you mean to say that you havo
boon wandering about London in
poverty, in—in this condition; and
that you didn't know—oh, good
Lord,  help mc,   Blanche!"
Her face (lushed as she leant forward and put her while hand on
Mannering's hard but shapely one.
"Mr. Mannering, Charlie is trying
to tell you something, lo break
something to you: and ho wnnts me
to help him. And I don't know
howl"—pitoously—"but I must try.
I must try, and you—you must be
patient with me."
Mannering looked at hor with scant
interest, and with a sigh iho went
"You have not bcon down to Los-
Mannering shook his head.
"No; why should I?"
"I know that you and your uncle,
Lord    Lesborough,     wero   not—good
friends,"    she   said,  "but I thought
you  might have  gono    down,  might
have heard—"
Mannering (hook hia head again
"No.     I've * not   hoard    anything.
What is Hi"
Lctchford rose and went to Mannering's till, and laid a hand, at
ones soothing and wurning, upon his
"It'a—It's bad news, Vance," ho
said, gravely. "Pull yourself together.   Tlio oarl's  dead!"
Mannering nodded and hi* lips
"I'm sorry," ho said in his deep,
hollow voioe. "I—I—liked the old
man, though we never got on together. He thought me too independent—I wouldn't accept his money.
Poor old fellow! He was u good
sort! Dsadl And so Augustus is tho
Earl of Lesborough!"
Letchford drew a long breath,
shrugged his shoulders and looked
helplessly towards his wife, and of
course aha cams to his relief.
"There is still—worso sews, Mr.
Mannering," the said ln her tweet,
gentle voice. "Lord Augustus and
his boy—you remember him, ho was
at Eton7   You were fond of him."
Mannering nodded.   "Yes; nice boy,
farry. Ths only one of the family
cared for," he said, thoughtfully.
"—Wore going down to the funeral.
"There was an accident to the
train," Letchford took up ths bur-
don of tha story as hor voice faltered and broke. "A bad accident. Fifteen killed. Amongst 'em was—was
Augustus and his boy—"
Mannering looked up and from ono
to the other.
"Kllledl Ths boy killsdl I'm—I'm
■orryl" His voice grew hoarse. "A
Sloe boy; ws were great friends!
The husband and wifo oxchanged
glances and Letchford's hand closed
more firmly on Maanoring's shoulder.
"Yes, it's bad, shocking bad!" hs
said, slowly and impressively. "And
—and it alters things for you, old
man, doesn't lt!"
Mannering looked round at him.
"Alters things?   How?"
"Good heavens, don't you see,
don't you understand I" said Letchford. "The old carl is dead, and Augustus, and tho poor boy, and so—
and so—"
"Mr. Mannering, you are the Earl
of Lesborough," said Lady Blanche
In a low voice.
Mannering looked from one to tho
othor dully, then he bognn to tremble,
and presently his head wos bowed in
his hands, and his groat, gaunt
frumc wus shaken by tearless sobs.
Ths storm did not break upon Nina
upon her raft until the favoring
wind had carried her far out to sea;
and it may safely bo said that sho
did not realize tho rash nature of her
enterprise until the first Hash of
lightning ond the first clap of thun-
■der; for, liko most of bur sex, she
hnd acted on the impulse of tho moment, and without counting the cost.
But os tho sky grew inky black
and broken only by the weird streaks
of lightning, terror nnd remorse assailed ber in equal proportions; terror on her oivn account, remorse on
Mannering's; for here she wns on the
raging sea, and she ,luud left him ta
the awful solitude of the i   nnd.
She had picked up enough of seamanship to lower her' sail, and she
lay, or rather crouched, on the raft,
drawing tho sail over hor to afTord
her partial protection from the rain
and the wind. Presently sho felt rather than saw that the raft was becoming disintegrated, nnd, rising to
her knees, she reached for the sheet,
tho ropo attached to tho sail, and,
winding it round ber, fastened lt to
a oouplo of the poles of which the
raft was composed. Sho did this mechanically, and after, half unconsciously, asking herself what V tn-
noring would do if ho were ln her
plight. It was singular how, even in
this moment of her solitude and extremity, she relied upon him.
It was well that she had taken this
precaution, for, tho storm growing
more furious, tho ruft soon aftor
broke up and she found herself floating on tho smaller portion. Tho
howling of the wind, the dull roar
of the sea deafened, and the salt and
spume of tho waves blinded her, and
sho closetl her eyos and prepared for
death; but Instead of tho death which
she would huve welcomed there fell
upon her a kind of swoon, the stupor
of exhaustion and torror.
The storm fell as suddenly as it
had arisen, and shs opened her eyes
to see the sun shining through a
thick mist. The sea was quite calm
now nnd the logs to which she wns
tied floated almost motionlcssly. Sho
was parched with a thirst which
made hunger of no account, and she
know, in a subtle fashion, that her
brain was giving way. Just as Mannering had done, she found herself
talking and holding conversations
with him; sho went through the wholo
of the marriago- coremony with hiin,
re-enncted the scenes in tho saloon,
lived over again tho life in the island. Then she fell into a profound
unconsciousness, but after a time sho
came to again, and found thnt sho
was still floating in this dreum-like
mist. Her whole past life seemed liko
a dream. Was this wide sea, tho island, her marriage, only n dream?
How long she floated uu the calm
mill-pond of a sea she did not know,
but presently the mist was penetrated by the sound of music. With closed eyes she listened. Wns she dead,
and wns this the music of the heavenly ohoir? If so, she wns at rest in,
the bourne from whence no traveler
returns. But Mnnnering, her husband
—ho was still on his desolate island.
Oh, how could she hnvo left liim!
The music grew louder and more
distinct, and it Beamed to her moro
earthly; she heard a voice, a deep,
stentorian voice, call: "Man overborn ill Stop her!" Then hor souses
slipped from hor slowly, cosily, and
when thoy returned and shs opened
her eyes again they mot the pitying
ones of a young girl who bent over
hor with anxiety eloquent ln every
curve of her body.
"Are you bettor? Caa jrou understand? Oh, I hope you have come
to!" said ths voice belonging to th.
"I—I am hotter," said Nina; aad,
as If it wen- a formula, shs asked,
"Where am I?"
"On board the Island Queen—ons of
the Weldon Line, you know," replied
ths voles.
Nina did not know, but shs sighsd
snd turned her head away.

-fearful   I'lUishment   That   Obtul,,.„l
Under Old EuirlUli I.uw.
Under the old English law if a prisoner stood mute and fulled to plead to
tbe indictment n jury was Impaneled
to determine whether his conduct enme
from obstinacy or from n natural impediment. According to Blackstone, if
tbe prisoner wns found to be obstinately mute and the indictment was
for high treason it was settled that
his silence was equivalent to a conviction and that judgment and execution
Bhould follow. This same rule applied
to petit larceny and mlsdemeauors, but
upon appeal or indictments for otlier
felonies or petit treason, according to
the ancient law, the prisoner was not
deemed convicted; but, because of his
obstinacy, he received "the terrible
sentence of penance or peine" and was
pressed to death.
Blackstone thus describes this punishment: "That the prisoner be remanded to the prison from whence be
cume and put ill a low, dark chamber
und there be laid on his back on the
bare floor, naked unless decency forbids; that there be placed upon his
body as great a weight of Iron as he
could boar and more; that he Bhould
have no sustenance, save only ou tbe
first day three morsels of the worst
bread, and on the second day three
drafts of standing water that should
be nearest tbe prison door, and in this
situation this should be alternately
his daily diet till he died or (us anciently the judgment ran) till he answered."
During the trials for witchcraft ln
New England a respectable citizen being so nccused, knowing that by reason of the excitement of the times a
plea of not guilty and trial would result In a conviction with confiscation
of property, end the same judgment
would follow a plea of guilty, refused
to plead, thereby preventing a conviction and enabling his family to retain
his property. Tbe court ordered that
he be pressed becnuse of his obstinacy.
The order was curried out and tbe
victim died.

But monkeys do not seem to bave

of all the animal performers were of

The remark that animals do not grow

unblt of elephants, noticed even lu
ii'ilent times, of ranking the young

superintended tie ciubi.rktiiioii of the
elephants sent from India to Abys-

The Chatham Incubator and
Brooder has created a New Era
in Poultry Raising*
.j     The setting Hen as a Hatcher
has been proven a Commercial
The Chatham Incubator and
Brooder has always proved a
Money Maker.
A Light, Pleasant and Profitable Business for Women
Many women aro to*day making an independent living and putting by luonoy every
month raining poultry with a Chatham Inuu-
Any woman with a littlo leisure timo at her
disposal can, without any previous experience
or without a cent of casii, begin tiio poultry
business and muko money right from the start.
Perhaps you have a friend who Ir doing so.
If not, wo can givo you the names of many who
■started with much misgiving only to he surprised by tlio ease and rapidity with which tho
prollts camo to thom.
Of course, success depends on getting a
right start. You must begin right. Vou can
nevor mako any considerable money us a
poultry raiser with liens us hatchers. Vou
must havo a good Inoubator and Brooder, hut
this means in tho ordinary way an investment
wliich, perhaps you are not prepared to mako
just now, and this is just whoro our special
oiler comes in.
If you are In earnest, wo will aot yon up in
tho poultry business without a cent of cash
down. If wo were not euro that tho Chatham
Incubator and Brooder Is tho best and thnt
with it and a reasonable amount of effort on
your part you are suro to mako money, wo
would not make the special offor below.
THE SETTING HEN—Her failures
have discouraged many a poultry raiser.
You can make money
raisind chicks in the right
way—lots of it.
No one doubts that thore Ih money In raising
ohiokens with a good Incubator and Brooder.
Usors of the Chatham Inoubator and Brooder
have all mado money. If you still cling to tho
old Idea, that you can successfully run a poultry
business using the lien as a hatcher, wo would
liko torsasou with you.
In the first place, we can prove to you that
your actual cash loss in eggs, wliich the 20 lions
-ihould lay during the timo you keep thom
hatching and brooding, will bo enough to pay
for a Chatham Incubator and Brooder fn five
or six hatchos, to say nothing whatever of tho
larger and bettor results attained by tho use
of the Chatham Inoubator and Brooder.
If you allow a hen to set, you lose at least
oight weeks of laying (threo weeks hatching
aud live weoks taking cure of the chickens), or
say in tho oight weeks sho would lay at least
three dozen eggs. Lot the Chatham Incubator
on tho hatching, whilo the huu goes on laying
Our No. 3 Incubator will hatch as many eggs
as twenty sitting lions, and do it bettor. Now,
hero is a question in arithmetic :—
If you keep 20 hens from laying
for 8 woeks, how much cash, do       *
you lose if each hen would hare
laid 3 dozen eggs, and eggs are
worth 15 cents por dozen.     Ans.—$9.00.
Thoreforo, when tho Chatham Incubator is
hatching tho numbor of eggs that twenty hens
V>uld hatch, it is really earning in cash for you
$il.00, besides producing for your profit chicks
by tlio wholesale, and Doing ready to do the
samo thing over again tho moment each hatch
is off.
Don't you think, therefore, that it pays to
keep the hons laying and let the Chatham
Incubator do the hatching!
There are many other reasons why the
Chatham Incubator and Brooder outclasses
the setting hon.
The hen sots when she Ja ready. Tho Chatham Incubator is always r_ady. By planning
to take off a hatch at the right timo, you may
have plonty of broilers to sell when broilers
are scarce and prices at the top notch. If you
depend on the hen, your chicks will grow to
broilers just when every other hen's chicks aro
being marketed, and whon tho price is not so
Tho hen Is a caroless mothor, often leading her
chicks amongst wet grass, bushes, and in places
whore rats can confiscate her young.
The Chatham Brooder behaves itself, ls a
porfeot mothor and very rarely loses a chick,
and is not infested with lice.
Altogether, thero is absolutely no reasonable
reason for continuing bhe nee of a hen as a
hatchor nnd evory reason why you should
have a Chatham Inoubator and Brooder.
We are making a very special offer, which
It will pay you to investigate.

Every Farmer Should
Raise Poultry
Almost every fanner "keeps hens,"' bnt.white
he knows t .hat there is n certain amount of profit
In the business, even when lotting it take core
of itself, few farmers are aware of how muoh
they are losing every year by not getting into
the poultry business lusucha way oa to makt
real money out of it. , „, .
The Hotting hon as a hatcher will never be a
commercial succor. Her business is to lay
eggs and sho should bo kept at it. The only
way to raise chicks for profit is to begin right,
bv installing a Chatham Incubator and Broodor.
With such a machine you can begin hatching
on a largo scale at any time.
Vou can only get one crop off your fields in
a year, bub with a Chatham Incubator and
Brooder and ordinary attention, you can raise
Ohiokens from early Spring until W'i.itor and
have a crop every month.   Think of it I
Quite a row fanners have discovered that
thoro is money in the poultry business and have
found thia branch of farming so profitable that
thoy have installed Bovoral Chatham Incubators andBroodere after trying tho fi -t.
Perhaps you think that it requires a great
deal of time or a great deal of technical knowledge to raise chit-kens with a Chatham Incubator aud Brooder, lf so, you aro greatly mistaken. Your wife or daughter can attend bo
the machine and look aftor the chickens without interforiug with their regular household
The market Is always good and prices are
nevor low. The demand is always in excess of
the supply nnd at certain times of the year you
can practically get any price you care to ask for
good broilers. With a Chatham Incubator and
Brooder vou can start hatching at the right
time to bring the chickens to marketable
broilors when the supply is vory low and the
prices accordingly high. This you could never
do with hens as hatchers.
Wo know that there is money in the poultry
business for every farmer who will go aoout it
right. All you havo to do is to get a Chatham
Incubator and Brooder and start it. But perhaps you are not propared just now to spend
th"' money. This is why we make the special
We know thore Is money iu raising chickens.

We know that we made a similar offer last

Therefore, we have no hesitation In making
this proposition to every honest, earnost man
or woman who mny wish to add to their yearly

Tliis really means that we will set you op ln

In tho Winnipeg Free Press of Aug.
C 1905, appeared the following telegram from Dr. J. A. Macarthur, the
eminent physician of Winnipeg:
Chicago, Aug. 6—The London Old
Boys special left St. Paul at 11 a.m.
over the Burlington Route for Chicago. This road traverses the east side
of the Mississippi for 300 miles and
tho scenery along the route Is most
varied and picturesque. The wide expanse of water Is constantly in view
while the rugged cliffs on the opposite side present a striking contrast
and afford a pleasant background for
the placid waters of the great river.
Members of the party have enjoyed
themselves greatly so far, and were
very much Impressed with the magnificent scenery on the route which
is new to all of them.
This will be the Ideal route for
your trip to Eastern Canada during
the period of $40 excursions dally
December 4-31.
The Burlington Route offers something to see en route from St.. Paul to
Chicago. Three hundred miles along
the east bank of the beautiful Mississippi River, the Becond largest river
ln the world, and rightly called "The
Father of Waters."
When purchasing your tickets be
sure and ask your agent to route you
via the "Burlington Mississippi Scenic Line." They will be glad to do it
and you will be glad you went that
way on your Eastern Canadian vacation.

Suggestions of a Master Dairy Farmer
In Managing the Herd.
Concerning the care of dairy cows
Rev. J. D. Dietrich, who made famous
the fifteen acre farm at Flourtown,
Pa., by keeping thlrty-nlno cows upon
lt, says: A heifer that is coming ln
soon should have the same feeding as
the cow that is dry. No bag, no cow,
Feed so you get ain udder, the eye
makes the dairyman!
Keep a strict gestation table and read
It over every week. Group your cows
coming ln at different times and count
285 days for a cow to drop her calf.
A cow should not be treated as dry
until she ls actually so. The right way
to dry her is to put her on timoihV
hay only and milk her dry by skipping
teats. I know tho carelessness of cow
keeps;" they don't deserve the name of
After the cow is dry, and all my
cows must be dry four weeks, not
more or less, wo feed for health and a
good calf and give the cow plenty of
exercise by making a boy lead her,
and make her walk. Her hind legs, ln
walking, rub her udder better than
any man's hand can, and if she is fat
and you are afraid of milk (ever, walk
her for exercise.
Even lf lt take two or three miles,
give lt to her, and I will guarantee no
milk fever if you walk her six or seven
miles. Bran ls the safest feed that
goes down a cow's throat; hay and
bran when she is dry. In ten days to
two weeks beforo calving, she ought
to begin to make a bag.
If she does not on four or six quarts
of bran, and all the hay she can eat,
and bowels are right, commence to
give her a handful of cako meal; Increase it to two handfuls, and on up
to a pint, if necessary. At every feed
keep your eye on the cow and her udder, 'i
It should not be a big, red, Inflamed
organ, as hard as a brick, and out of
shape, but a splendid pendant recep-
table for milk, dignified for maternity.
During the dry period our eye is always on that dry cow. If she ls handled by exercise, and fed for the day
the calf is to come, your eye will tell
you just the progress she is making
as your ear can tell when the violin is
in tune.
If her manure is hard and knotty,
and she is fat, a dose of salts, ginger
and molasses ls given her. and always
at the time of calving ls given to every
cow, and if the cow ls Inclined to
swollen udder, one-half pound more of
salts ls given her, thlrtyslx hours
after calving.
The bran and water are given the
cow little and often; that ls, one quart
of bran ls given the cow, Ave to six
times a day, ln three to four quarts of
cold water, and lf she will drink more
water, offer three to four quarts in between the bran and water, and feed
hay sparingly for two days, the cow
will refuse the bran and water after
two days, then you can commence to
give a light mess of cut hay and bran,
and about the same amount of linseed
as you fed her before she was fresh.
The next meal give a little more linseed, and on the fourth day a little
more, and the fifth day about the
same as the fourth day, depending on
the cow, her udder, her manure and
her general look; but never increase
her feed at any one time, more than
one-half pound at a feed.
After danger ls over, and the udder
ln good shape, you can feed the full
ration that your cow can digest profitably, and she will be all right for 330
days' milk, if you treat her rightly.

Study Here the  Indications of   a   Failing
Nervous System.
It is surprising what hosts of people
at* suffering as the result of an exhausted nervous system and do not
know the nature of their ailment.
They cannot sleep at nights—are
restless and fidgety ln the daytime
—their tempers are easily irritated—
little things worry thom—they cannot
concentrate their minds.and find their
memories falling—there are spells of
nervous headache —the digestion Is
Impaired—pains and aches of a neuralgic nature afflict them—feelings of
discouragement and despondency
come over them at times,and they get
ln the way of looking at the dark side
of things.
i lf this describes your experleice
jyou will be interested in Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food, for this great food cure
(gets at the very foundation of nerv-
ions troubles and cures ln the only nat-
Hiral way, by enriching the blood, revitalizing the wasted nerve cells, and
.building up the sytem generally.
Mrs. J. B. Tardlff, Marlapolis, Man-,
writes:- "When I began the use of
Dr. Chase's Nerve   Food   my   health
was In a terribly bad condition. My
doctor lold me lhat I was going into
consumption and for nearly three
years my bowels were so loose and
watery that I was continually kept
weak and run down. In spite of the
many remedies used I gradually grew
worse and worse- I could scarcely
get about the house and suffered a
great deal from backache, stomach
and kidney troubles.
"Dr. Chase's Nerve Food proved to
be exactly what I needed uud by keeping lip this treatment for n time I got
so strong and woll that I did my own
housework and sometimes worked in
the fields without feeling any tha
worse for it.

Th. Dry Feed System.
The dry feed system is coming
more and more popular for raising
chickens. It ls claimed that the labor
and bother are much reduced and the
chickens grow better and the death
rate ls smaller. Some growers feed
only once a day with (he grain and
meat mixture, but the more common
method ls to feed several times dally.
It ls fed mixed with chaff and gravel,
to which the chickens have access at
all times and look after their own feed
and exercise for the most part.
Exposure Injure. Foal..
Young foals that are stabled with
their dams during cold rainstorms will
thrlv. much better than those which
are not so protected, says American
Cultivator. The Idea that exposure to
Inclement weather makes a foal hardy
ls fallacious. Those that are naturally
the most hardy will be least affected
by hardships. Tho weaker ones will
die lf tbe hardships which they ar*
forced to endure are too great.

A Teat by Which to Tell the Gennta*
From  the  Spurious.
Once upon a time there was a man
who spent eight of the best years of
his life coloring a meerschaum pipe,
only to find at the end of tbat period
lhat he bad been nursiug a piece of
"massakopfe" Instead of the geuuino
"ecume de mer." The "massakopfe"
is u composition made of the parings of
genuine meerschaum and a mineral
clay. Ths pariugs are triturated to a
flue powder, boiled In water and molded into blocks, with or without the addition of clay. Each block is then cut
into u bowl, but as it contracts considerably it must bo left some time to
dry. These bowls are distinguished
from the genuine meerschaum by their
greater specific gravity, but there is no
absolutely certain test by whlcb tlie
real meerschaum can be told from the
lu forming a pipe from "ecume de
mer" the silicate of magnesia ls prepared for tho operation by soaking ln
a composition of wax, oil and fats.
Tbo wire aud oil absorbed by tbe meerschaum are the cause of the color produced by smoking. The beat of the
burning tobacco, causes the wax and
fatty substances to pass through tha
stages of a dry distillation, and, becoming associated with the products
of the distillation of the tobacco, tbey
are diffused tlirough tbe substances of
(he bowl, producing those gradations
of tiut whlcb are so much prized. In
some cases the bowls are artificially
colored by dipping them, before beiug
soaked in wax, in a solution of sulphate of Iron, either alone or mixed
with dragon's blood.
Good meerschaum ls soft enough to
be indented by the thumb nail. It
yields readily to the knife, especially
after having been wetted. There are
various densities. Some kinds sink ln
water; others float on the surface.
Those of medium density arc preferred
by the pipe maker, for the light varieties are porous and even cavernous.
Many judges assume that the heavier
kinds are spurious, but there is no absolute proof that such ij the case. A
negative test may be mentioned. The
composition bowls never exhibit those
little blemishes which result from the
presence of foreign bodies ln tbe natural meerschaum. Therefore lf a
blemish occur in a meerschaum bowl,
which is very frequently the case, the
genuineness of tbe bowl ls rendered
most probable. But as blemishes do
not show until after the bowl bas beeu
used for some time the test is not of
much value.

even (he clerical trades formerly monopolized almost entirely by men. is now
having the effect of driving ihe men,
young and old, back to tlio farm to obtain a livelihood.
"I cannot say that we notice this effect ln Canada yet, nnd It will be
some time beforo we do, as we are n
young country compared with Ihe
United Slates. But all our towns loll
the same story. The young peoplo nre
flocking to the cities. They are dazzled with what thoy believe is there,
and they find when they do go that the
realization ls nnt the same as the anticipation. The best Inniiences are lacking In tho city. The oity ls not tho
place to foster and develope the ideal
home life, even in Canadian cities. The
country affords the most natural scope
for that. I gather that the aim of tlie
majority of our young women, whether
they live In the city or country, Is towards matrimony, and the training afforded by tho city environment is not
tho best training for a wife and mother.—not as Rood and helpful at any rate
as that found In tlie country. The press
nf this country should wield Its great
Influence In nn educative capacity, towards keeping tho country Ideal strong
and vigorous, and lo remove from tho
minds of the ynung tlie thought that
they may bo wasting lime by staying
on their fnthers' farms.
"Farming is not what It was. Of old
It was all work and no play, and very
little financial gain as a reward. Nowadays It is different. The modern
farmer exercises a much keener business Instinct In running his farm.
Labor-saving machinery takes awny
the manual toll formerly an unavoidable adjunct of his work. Prices are
better, and he handles a great deal
more money than his grandfather was
able to do. In fact It takes a good
business man to be a farmer with success nowadays.
"I would llko to see our boys and
girls content to stny ln the country.
The outlook for fanning Is good now,

Prior to the general elections of
last year Mr. Borden, leader of the
Conservative party in Canada, gave
his pledge that he would support the
investigation of British Columbia's
claims for Better Terms, and if sustained to giive tliem effect. That
pledge was construed by the Liberal
leaders of the province as an election
promise. Those who have faith in
Mr. Borden's sincerity as a statesman
believed that he would be as good as
his word, and if victorious would
carry out his pledge to the letter.
Those who take that view of his political character will have been pleased
lo note the despatch in Tuesday morning's Colonist in which he is reported
to have stated in an interview that
he considers the claim of British Columbia to a large extent just, as it
was forced)to pay an extremely high
price for its public works, while covering an extensive territory. Tlie
fact that Mr. Borden can expect to
get no "kudas" in Eastern Canada by
announcing his views in this matter
is the best proof that he believes in
the genuineness of our case, and is
prepared to stand for right and justice  for  British  Columbia.

If ever there was a time when the
gospel of responsibility and self restraint should be dinned into the poor
it is now, when a gigantic struggle
(he extent of which cannot be predicted, has already begun. When the
sentimental, professional philanthropists should be reprimanding parents
foi daring to have a half-dozen children, and trying to instil into them
ideals of decency and responsibility,
they are begging funds for hospitals,
and for fresh air experiments, and encouraging the multiplication and the
I preservation of the unlit. Besides
! teaching false views of life, they are
[ cruel on .ha women and children, allowing terrible burdens to be placed
on the one; and in spite of their seaside homes, and other ameliorating
appliance? - and arrangements, encouraging the ttfrturc of helpless
children. The kind-hearted pcr.ions
who respond to the appeals of the
various philanthropic societies, that
make the'poor, as a class, the object
of their especial care, are thus quite
unwillingly contributing to make the
present social unrest more irrational
and menacing, owing to the pernicious
unwisdom of their almoners. The
cure lies in the hands of those who
support the charities, as all ther
needs to be done to work a desirable
change of method is (hat the professional philanthropist shall be warned against making, the reckless poor
a privileged class at tUe. expense of
the hard-working, ftclf-respcciing lower classes and the middle class, on

Everyone knows that for anything
to become known, it must be talked
about. For an article to become
popular its virtue must be made llie
subject of a public announcement.
That is advertising! Consequently,
if the survival of the fittest applies
to business principles as well as it
docs to other walks of life, the better the advertising—the better the
publicity—the belter the results.
Good results mean good business,
and good business is whnt every
merchant advertises fur. If lie did
nut wish to excel ill liis particular
IfYie, he would nut take llie trouble
to write an advertisement, much
more pay for the costly newspaper
and magazine space.—British Advertiser.
