Unusually iutoresting was the meeting of Mt. Pleasant Lodge L, O. L.,
No. 1842, on Wednesday evening in
Oddfellows' Hall. Worshipful Master,
J. A. Darke presided. The large
attendance of members, presence of a
number of high officers of the Ordor,
initiations and a number of vigorous
speeches on the School Question, kept
up the interest in tbe meeting till past
midnight. The first speaker on the
Autonomy Bill was the popular Grand
Master, Thos. Duke, after whom there
followed County Master, John Walm-
sley; C. W. Sawer, H, Birmingham, W.
Hnut, H W. Howes, H. G. Taylor,
James Robinson, R. B. Ellis, H. O.
Palmer, J. A. Darke.
The following resolution was passed
unanimously by a standing vote;
"Moved by Bro. Birmingham, secouded by Bro. H. W. Howes:
"That Mount Pleasant L, O. L. No.
1842, heartily approves of the resolutions passed by sister lodges respecting
the Autonomy Bill and the controversy
between the Hon. Mr. Rogers and the
Pope's representative at Ottawa, as
published hi the Vancouver papers;
"Be it further resolved that we endorse the action of our Grand Master,
Thomas Duke, In the above matters;
"And be it further resolved that all
loyal subjects should be warned
against the insidious and Jesuitical
statements and arguments made anil
used by those opposed to the course the
Orangemen are taking In the present
great crisis—that if the truth were
known most of such Laurier champions
are seeking office for selfish gain, and
are not worthy of the confidence of
Orangemen;
• ".Be It further resolved that we keep
up the fight against the separate school
clauses of the Autonomy Bill and
uirainst pnpal interference In Canadian
affairs in the most aggressive manner,
believing that Ihe time has come when
every true Protestant should buckle on
his armor and have emblazoned on his
stlcld the good old watchword, No
Surrender;
"Also lie lt resolved that copleH of
this resolution be sent for publication
to the Vancouver press."

The Filigree Ball
gi.   BY ANNA KATHERINE GREEN
K AUTHOR OF
E    "THE LEAVENWORTH CASE."
IIIIMIMMIMMtWIHMMM"'
"No, sir, thero ls somothing else,
■on-ething which I should like to relate to this jury. When she came into my room, she held in her hand a
whito ribbon; that is, she held the
two ends of a long satin ribbon
which seemed to come from her pocket. Handing thoso two ends to ine,
Bhe asked me to tio them about her
• wrist. 'A knot under and a bow. on
lop,' she said, 'so that it can not
slip off.' As this was something I
had often been called on to do for
hor, I showed no hesitation in complying with her request. Indeed, I
felt none. I thought lt was hor fan
or her bouquet she held concealed ln
the folds of her dress, but it proved
to be—Gentlemen,you know what. I
pray that you will not oblige me to
mention it."
It was such a stroke as no lawyer
would have advised her to make,—I
heard afterward that she had refused
■•'.■ the offices ol a dozen lawyers who
had proffered her their services. But
uttered ai it was with a noble air
and a cortain dignified serenity, it
had a great effect upon those about
her and turned in a moment the wavering tide of favor in her direction.
The coroner, who doubtless was
perfectly acquainted with the explanation with which she had provided
herself, but who perhaps did not look
for lt to antedate his attack, bowed
In quiet acknowledgment of her request and then immediately proceeded to Ignore it.
"I should be glad to spare you,"
aaid he, "but I do not find it   possible.     You   knew that Mr. Jeffrey
had a pistol?"
"I did."
"That it was kept ln their apartment?"
"Yes."
"In tha upper drawer ol a certain
bureau?"
"Yes."
;._    "Now, Miss Tuttle,   will you tell
" us why you went to that drawer—if
you did go to that drawer—immediately after    Mrs.    Jeffrey left     the
house?"
She had probably felt this question
coming, not only since the coroner
began to speak but ever since the evidence elicited from Loretta proved
that her visit to this drawer had
been secretly observed. Yet she had
no answer reedy.
"I did not go for the pistol," she
finally declared.   But she did not say
what she had gone for, and the coroner did not press her.
Again the tide swung back.
j      Sho seemed to feel the change but
did not show it In tho way naturally
looked for.   Instead of growing perturbed   or   openly     depressed     sho
':   bloomed   into   greater   beauty    and
confronted with steadier eye, not us,
but the men  sho instinctively  faced
as tho tide of her fortunes began to
lower.    Did the coroner perceive this
and recognizo at last both the measure of her attractions and the power
they    were    likely    to    carry   with
thorn?    Perhaps,  for his voice took
an acrid note as he declared:
3      "You had another errand in  that
.'  room?"; .
She   let   hor   head   droop   just   a
. trifle.
"AlasI" she murmured.
"You went to the book-shelves and
took oul a book with a peculiar cover, a cover which Mr. Jeffrey has already recognized as that, of the book
ln which he found a certain note."
• "iVou have said It,"1 she faltered.
"Did you take such a book out?"
! "I did."
"For what purpose. Miss Tuttle?"
She had meant, to answer quickly.
But some consideration made her
hesitate and tho words were long in
coming; when sho did speak, it was
to say:
"My sister asked another favor of
me after I had tied the ribbon. Pausing in her passage to tho door, sho
intormed me In a tone quite in
keeping with hor whole manner, that
she had left a note for her husband
in the book they were reading together. Her reason for doing this, sho
this, was the very natural one of
wishing! him to come upon it by
chance, but as she had placed it in
the front of the book instead of in
the back where they were reading,
she was afraid that he would fall to
find it. Would I be so good as to
take it out for her and Insert <t
again somewhere near the end? She
was ln a hurry or she would return
and do it herself. As she and Mr.
Jeffrey had parted ln anger, I hailed with Joy this evidenco of her desire for a reconciliation, and it was
in obedience to her request, the singularity of which did not strike me
aa forcibly then es now, that I went
to the shelves in her room and took
down the book."
"And did you find the note where
■he said?"
VYes, and put lt ln toward the jend
of the story."
"Nothing more? Bid you read the
Bote?"
.' "It was folded," was Miss Tuttle'e
quiet answer.
Certainly this woman was a thoroughbred or else Bhe was an adopt In
deception such as few of us had ever
encountered. The gentleness of her
manner, the easy tone, the quiet
eyes, eyes ln whose dark depths
great passions were visible, but passions that wore under tho control of
ui equally forcible will, made hor a
puzzle to all men's minds; but it wos
a fascinating puzzle thut awoke a
species of awe in those who attempted to understand her. To all appearances sho was tho unlikellest woman possible to cherish criminal intents, yet her answers wero rather
clever than convincing, unless you
allowed yourself to be swayed liy the
look of her beautilul face or the
music of her rich, sad voice.
"You did not remain before these
book-eholves long?" observed the
coroner.
"You have a witness who knows
more about that than I do," she suggested; and doubtless awaro of    ths
temerity of this roply, waltod with
unmoved countenance, but with a
visibly bounding breast, for what
Would doubtless prove a Ircsh
attack.
It waa a violent one and of a
character sho was least fitted to
meet. Taking up tho box I have so
often mentioned, tho coroner drew
«.w__v  tha ribbon  lying on top. and
dbclusod    the pistol.     In a moment
her hands wero over her cars.
"Why -do you do that?" he askod.
"Did you think I was going to discharged it?"
She smiled pitifully as sha let her
hands full again.
"I have a dread of firearms," she
explained. "1 always havo had.
Now they are simply terrible to me,
and this one—"
"I understand," said the coroner,
with a slight glance in tho direction
of Durbin. They had evidently planned this test together on tho
strength of an idea suggested to Durbin by her former action when, the
memory of this shot was recalled to
her.
"Vour horror seems to lio in the
direction of tho noiso thoy make,"
continued her inexorable interlocutor. "One would say you had heard
this pistol discharged."
Instantly a complete breaking-up
of hor hitherto well maintained composure altered her whole aspect and
Sho vehemently cried:
"I did, 1 did. I was on Waverley
Avenue that night, and I heard the
shot which in all probability ended
my sister's life, I walked farther
than 1 intended; I strolled into the
street which had such bitter memories for us and I heard—No, I was
not in search of my sister. I had
not associated my "sister's going out
with any Intention of visiting this
houso; I was merely troubled In mind
and anxious and—and—"
Sho had overrated hor strength or
hor cleverness. Sho found herself
unable to finish the sontonco, and so
did not try. Sho had been led by
the impulse of tho moment farther
than sho had intended, and, aghast
at her own imprudence, paused with
her first perceptible loss of courage
before the yawning gulf opening beforo her.
I felt myself seized by a very uncomfortable dread lest her concealments and unfinished sentences hid a
guiltier knowledge of this crime than
I was yet ready to admit.
The coroner, who is an older man
than myself, botrayed a certain satisfaction but no dread. Never did
the unction which underlies his
sharpest speeches show more plainly
than when he quietly remarked:
"And so under a similar impulse
you, at well as Mr. Jeffrey, choso
this uncanny place to ramble ln. To
all appearance that old hearth acted
much more like a lodestono upon
members of your family than you
wore willing to at one time to acknowledge."
This reference to words she had
herself been heard to use seemed to
overwhelm, her. Her calmness fled
and she cast a fleeting look of anguish at Mr. Jeffrey. But his face
was turned from sight, and, meeting
with no holp there, or anywhere, Indeed, save in her own powerful nature, sho recovered as best she could
the ground she had lost and, with
a trembling question of her own, attempted to put tho coroner in fault
and re-ostablish horsclf.
"You say 'ramble through.' Do
you for a moment think that I entered that old house?"
"Miss Tuttlo," was the grave, almost sad reply, "did you not know
that in some earth, dropped from
a flower-pot overturned at the time
when a hundred guests flew in terror
from this house, there is to bo seen
the mark of a footstep,— a footstep
which you arc at liberty to measure
with your own?"
"Ah!" she murmured, hor hands
going up to her faco.
But in another moment she had
dropped them and looked directly at
tho coroner.
"I walked there—I never said that
I did not walk there—when I went
later to seo my sister and in sight
of a number of detectives passed
through the halls and into the 11-
brnry."
"And that this footstep," inexorably proceeded the coroner, "is not
in a line with the main thoroughfare extending from tho front to tho
back of the houso, but turned Inwards toward tho wall as if sho who
made It had stopped to lean her
head against the partition?"
Miss Tuttle's head dropped. Probably she realized at this moment, if
not before, that tho coroner and Jury
had ample excuse for mistrusting
ono who had been so unmistakably
caught in a prevarication; possibly
hor regret carried her fnr enough to
wish she had not disdained all legal
advice from those who hnd so earnestly offered it. But though she
showed alike her shame and her riis-
henrtenment, sho did not give up the
struggle.
"If I went into the house," she
said, "it was not to enter that room
I hnd loo great a dread of it. If I
rested my head against tho wall It
was ln terror of that shot. It cuma
so suddenly nnd was so frightful, so
much moro flightful than anything
you can conceive."
"Then you did enter tho houso?"
"I did."
"And it was whilo you were inside,
Instead of outside, that you heard
the shot?"
"I must admit that too. I was nt
tho library door."
"You acknowledge that?"
"I do."
"But you did not enter the li-
brnry?"
"No, not then; not till I was taken back by the officer who told mo of
my sister's death."
'Wo are glnd to hear this preclso
statement from you. It encourages
mo to ask again tho nature of tho
freak which took you into the houso.
You sny it was not from nny dread
on your sistor's nccount? What,
then, wns it? No evasive answer
will satisfy us, Miss Tuttlo."
She realized this as no ono else
could.
Mr. Jeffrey's reason for his visit
there could not be her reason, yet
what other nau sne to giver Apparently none.
"I can not answer," she snld.
And tho doop sigh which swept
through tho room wus but an echo
of the despair wilh which she saw
heraoH brought to this point.
"Wo will not oblige you to," said
llie coroner with apparent consideration. Hut-to those who know tho
law au-ulust forcing, a witness tq in
criminate himself;  this Was mr irom
an encouraging concession.
"However," he went on, with suddenly assumed severity, "you may
answer this. Was the house dark or
light when you entered it? And how
did you get In?"
"The house was dark, and I got in
through the front door, which I
found ajar."
"You are more    cdurageous    than
most women!     I  four there aro   few
of your sox who could be Induced to
enter it in broad daylight and under
every suitable protection."
She raised  her figure proudly.
"Miss    Tuttle,     you    have    heard
Chloe say that you were in the kitchen of Mr.  Jeffrey's houso when the
grocer   boy     delivered   the    candles
which had boen left by your brother-
in-law on   the   counter    of the store
where he bought them.  Is this true?"
"Yes, sir, it is true."
"Did you see those candles?"
"No, sir."
"You did not seo them?"
"No, Bir."
"Yet you went over to the table?"
"Yes,    sir,    but   I did not meddle
with the packages.    I had really   no
business with them."
Tho coroner, surveying her sadly,
went quickly on as if anxious to terminate this painful examination. .
"You have not told us what you
did when you heard that pistol-
shot."
"I ran away   as soon as I could
move; I ran madly from tho house."
"Where?"
"Home."
"But It was half-past ten when you
got home."
"Was it?"
"It was half-past ten when the
man came to tell you of your sister's death."
"It may have been."
"Your sister is supposed to have
died in a few minutes. Whero were
you in tho interim?"
"God knows. I do not."
A wild look was creeping into her
face, and her figure was swaying.
But she soon steadied If, I have
never seen a more admirable presence
maintained in tho face of a dreadful
humiliation.
"Perhaps I can help you," rejoined
the coroner, not unkindly. "Were
you not ln tho Congressional Library looking up at the lunettes and
gorgeously painted walls?"
"I?" Her eyes opened wide ln
wondering doubt. "If I was, I did
not know it. I have no remembrance of it."
Sho seemed to lose sight of her
present position, tho cloud under
which she rested, and even the construction which might oe put upon
such a forgetfulness at a time confessedly prior to her knowledge of
the purpose and effect of the shot
from which she had so Incontinently
fled.
"Your condition of mind and that
of Mr. Jeffrey seem to have been
strangely alike," remarked the coroner.
"No, no!" she protested.
"Arguing a like source."
,'No, no," she cried again, this
time with positive agony. Then with
an offort which awakened respect for
her powers of mind, if for nothing
else, she desperately added: "I can
not say what was in his heart that
night, but I know what was in mine:
dread of that old house, to which I
had been drawn in spite of myself,
possibly by the force of tho tragedy
going on inside It, culminating in a
delirium of terror, which sent me flying in an opposite direction from my
homo and into places I had been accustomed to visit when my heart was
light and untroubled."
Tho coroner glanced at the jury,
who unconsciously shook their heads.
He shook his, too, as he returned to
the charge.
"Another ques'tion. Miss Tuttle.
When you heard a pistol-shot sounding from the depths of that dark
library, what did you think lt
meant?"
She put her hands over her ears-
it seemed as if she could not prevent
this instinctive expression of recoil
at the mention of tho death-dealing
weapon—and in very low tones replied:
"Somothing dreadful; somothing
superstitious. It was night, you remember, and at night one has such
horrible thoughts."
"Yot an hour or two later you declared that the hoarth was no lode-
atone. You forgot Its horrors and
your superstition upon returning to
your own house."
"It might be," she murmured; "but
if bo, they soon returned. I had
reason for my horror, if not for my
superstition, as the event showed."
Tho coroner did not attempt to
controvert this. He was about to
launch a final inquiry.
"Miss Tuttle, upon the return of
yourself and Mr. Jeffrey to your
home after your final visit to the
Moore house, did you have any interview that was without witnesses?"
"No."
"Did you exchange any words?"
"I   think    we    did   exchange some
words; It would be only natural."
"Are you willing to state what
words?"
She looked dazed and appeared to
search her memory.
"I don't think 1 can," sho objected.
"But something was said by    you
and some answer was made by him?"
"I believe so."
"Can not you say definitely?"
"Wo did speak."
"In English?"
"No, In French."
"Can you not translate that French
for us?"
"Pardon me, sir; It was so long
ngo my memory fails me."
"Is it any better  .'or the    second
ami longer Interview between you the
next day?"
"No-sir."
"You can not give us any    phase
or word that was uttered there?"
"No."
"Is this your final roply    on   thia
subject?"
"It ls."
She nover had boon subjected to nn
Interrogation liko this boforo. It
mado her proud soul quiver in revolt, notwithstanding the patience
with which sho had fortified herself.
With red checks and glistening eyos
she surveyed the man who had made
her suffer so, and instantly every
other man there suffered with her;
excepting possibly Durbin, whose
heart wns never his strong point. But
our hearts wero moved, our reasons
were not convinced, as was presently
Bhown, when, with a bow of dismissal, the coroner released her, and sho
pnssod back to her seat.
Simultaneously with her withdrawal the gleam of sensibility left the
faces of tho Jury, and the dark and
broodine look     which   had    mjirked
their countenances .torn the T-.gin-
ning returned, and returned to stay.
"What would their verdict be? There
were present two persons who affected to believe that it would be one of
suicide occasioned by domentia. These
were Miss Tuttle and Mr. Jeffrey,
who, now that the critical period
had come, straightened themselves
boldly in their seats and mot the
glances concentrated upon them with
dignity, if not with tho assurance ol
Complete innocence. But from the
carefulness with which they avoided
each other's eyos and the almost
identical expression mirrored upon
both faces, it was visible to all that
they regarded their cause as a common one, and that the link which
they donled, as having existed between them prior to Mrs. Jeffrey's
death, had in some way been supplied by that vory tragedy; so that
they now unwittingly looked with tho
same eyes, breathed with tho same
breath, and showed themselves responsive to tho samo fluctuations of
hope and fear.
The celerity with which that jury
arrived at its verdict was a shock to
us all. It had been a quiet body, offering but little assistance to the
coroner in his questioning; but when
it fell to those men to act, tho precision with which they did so was
astonishing. In a tin 1 "-hour thoy returned from tho room into which
thoy adjourned, nnd tho foreman
gave warning that lio was prepared
to ronder a verdict.
Mr. Jeffrey and Miss Tuttle both
Clenched their hands; then Miss Tuttlo pulled down her veil.
"Wo find." said the solemn foreman, "that Veronica Moore Jeffrey,
who on tho night of May eleventh
was discovered lying dead on the
floor of her own unoccupied houso
in Waverley Avenue, camo to her
death by means of a bullet, shot from
a pistol connected to her wrist by
a length of white satin ribbon.
"That tlie fust conclusion of suicide is not fully sustained by the
facts;
"And that attempt should bo mado
to identify the hand that fired this
pistol."
It was as near an accusation of
Miss Tuttle as was possible without
mentioning her name. A groan passed through the assemblage, and Mr.
Jeffrey, bounding to his feet, showed
an inclination to shout aloud in his
violent indignation. But Miss Tuttle,
turning toward him, lifted hor hand
with a commanding gesture and held
it so till ho sat down ngain.
It was both a majestic and an utterly Incomprehensible movement on
her part, giving to tho close of these
remarkable proceedings a dramatic
climax which set all hearts beating
and, I am bound to say. all tongues
wagging till the room cleared.

I-irber Regulations,
The hairdresser is pointed out by
The Lancet as an object of public
danger, for his occupation is a fruitful channel of the dissemination ol
disease.
The corporation of tho city of London is considering a report of its
medical officer on the regulations affecting hairdressing and shaving in
other countries, and The Lancet suggests that:
The hands at least of the hairdresser should bo free from disease,
and he should have no contagious
skin diseases on any part of tho
body.
He should be clothed in a clean
washable garment, which should havo
ao pockets, for in thoso hairs tend
to collect and to infect scissors and
brushes.
Between every two customers the
hairdresser should wash his hands.
Every customer should have a fresh
towel, and the head In shaving
should rest on a clean piece of paper
or a fresh towel.
Powder-puffs should be replaced by
pieces of cotton wool, which can be
burned after use.

PAINFUL   RHEUMATI8M     f
How It Is Caused by Bad Blood, am
Why Cured hy Dr. Williams'
Pink  Pills.
Not many years ago doctor.
thought rheumatism was only a local
pain caused by cold or wet in ageing
joints and muscleB. Now they know
that rheumatism is caused by the
blood becoming tainted with urio
acid from disordered liver and- kidneys. Thi3 acid eats Into the vital
organs. It destroys their vitality,
contracts the muscles, stiffens the
joints and irritates the nerves. Then
cold and wet make every bone groan
with aching rheumatism. You blame
the weather, but the real cause ia
acid in the blood. The stiffness
spreads and the pains grow worse
each year until yoa are a helpless
cripple, tortured day and night. Perhaps the disease may spread to the
heart—and that means sudden death.
You must not neglect rheumatism—
but you can't cure it with liniments,
plasters or hot cloths. They cannot
possibly touch the blood. " The only
sure scientific cure is Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, because they actually
make new blood. They sweep out the
painful acid, loosen the Joints, and
muscles, brace up the nerves, and
strengthen the liver and kidneys for
their work ln casting out Impurities.
This is proved by the thousands of
suffering rheumatics who have been
made woll and strong by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Mr. T. H. Smith,
of Caledonia, Ont., ls one of these
many witnesses. He says: "For a
number of years I was badly troubled
with rheumatism, and was so crippled up I could scarcely do any work.
I tried a number of medicines, but
they did not help me. I saw Dr,
Williams' Pink Pills advertised as a
cure for rheumatism and decided to
try them. Before the third box was
gone I found myself much better. I
continued to use the pills throughout
the winter and they have completely
cured me. I got so I could work on
the coldest day without a coat and
not feel a twinge of the trouble. 1
think every rheumatic sufferer should
promptly take Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure men
and women who are crippled with
lumbago, rheumatism, sciatica, paralysis and even locomotor ataxia, because they actually make new, rich
red blood. The new blood sweeps the
painful, poisonous Impurities out of
the system and puts the whole body
into a healthy state. Nothing but
good rich blood can do that—and
nothing can give you,* healing blood
except Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. If
the blood Is bad the nerves are bad,
for the nerves feed on the blood.
That ls the cause of sleeplessness,
nervousness, hysteria, St. Vitus'
dance, neuralgia, and loss ot vitality
ln men and women. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills faithfully used cure these
diseases and other blood disorders
such as anaemia, biliousness, indigestion, heart troubles, backache, kidney trouble and decline. But you
must get the genuine pills. The
"something else Just ss good" medicine which some dealers try to per
suade their customers to take never
cured anything or anyone. See that
the full name, "Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People," Is on the
wrapper around every box. If ln
doubt write direct to The Dr. Wll
Hams* Medicine Co., Brockvllle, Ont.
and the pills will be mailed at 50
cents a box or six boxes for $2.60.

The "War Great Haiti of Ship. Hm
Been Shattered—When a Belt Strikes
a. Tree It Generate! Steam From the
lap ana Eiplodr. the Bark,
The explosive force of lightning acting on dead wood ls not, as a rule, ao
great as when living trees are struck,
though Sir William Harris shows that
"the masts of ships of the line, three
feet ln diameter and 110 feet long,
bound with hoops of Iron half an Inch
thick and Ave Inches wide, the whole
weighing about eighteen tons, have
been ln many Instances torn asunder
and the hoops of Iron scattered about
the decks." It will be found, as a rule,
that trees are struck by lightning far
more often than are buildings, even
lf tbe trees and buildings are close together. This is partly because the
trees are higher.
But there must probably be some unknown reason not only for the frequency witb which trees are struck,
but for the recurrence of such shocks
ln the case of particular trees or trees
in the same locality. The commonest
form of Injury ls that the current
passes down the bark of the tree, stripping off the band, wider or narrower,
from top to bottom. Sometimes on an
oak two or three of these lightning
marks are seen, evidently caused at
different times.
There must be something ln the form
or situation or earth below tbe trees
which endangers It. An Instance ls
quoted ln Mr. Anderson's descriptive
book of the Church of St Mary ln
Oenoa, which was frequently struck
by lightning, sometimes aa often as
twice a year. It was noticed that the
electric force always followed tbe same
track. It was discovered later tbat
the walls were clamped with Iron, and
tbat tbe lightning bad followed the
patch ln which the metal offered tbe
greatest continuity, destroying the zone
between.
If tbe ground below the tree or building Is hard and dry, the contact wltb
tbe earth, ln which tbe lightning expands IU force and disperses, ls difficult, and tbe destruction of tbe object
struck ts likely to result This mny
explain the frequency with whlcb a
"blasted" tree ls seen extending Its
dead arms on the summit of some rocky
cliff or peak. Tbe ground below lt Is
dry and does not easily lead away the
current Into the earth.
At the same time thunderclouds undoubtedly tend to discbarge, or perhaps
lt would be safer to say tbat the transmission from the cloud to tbe earth
more frequently takes place, near
pieces of water and nlong the courses
of rivers than elsewhere.
In a park ln one of the eastern counties of England there ls a large lake.
The pnrk contains more trees struck by
lightning than the whole of tbe rest of
the estate. Some miles away la a road
called locally the "Lightning road"
from the frequency with which accidents have occurred there either to
trees, horseB, cattle or passenger*. In
this park there recently occurred an In
stance of the explosive effect In certain drenmstances not perfectly known.
A very tall spruce, probably 100 feet
high, was ''exploded" from top to bottom Into pieces the size of the wood
used ln making chairs. Every ahred of
bark was stripped from tbem, and the
wood looked as if lt had been shredded
Op for firing. A similar Instance occurred some years ago when an oak in
the grove below tbe foot of the White
lodge ln Richmond park exploded under lightning shock. The bark flew off
and simply disappeared ln small patches, and the rest of tbe tree waa shattered Into white fragments.
In these cases lt ls probable that the
current seta np such a tremendous beat
that all the aap ln the tree ls converted
Into superheated steam, whlcb explodes. The greater the heat the more of
the cells ln which moisture lies are exploded and the greater the destruction
of the tissues of the tree. As there ls
most moisture between the bark and
the trunk the flrst and greatest explosion takes place there, instantly driving the bark away Into space. Frequently the explosion only takes place
at that point
As Sir Hiram Maxim pointed out
after the great explosion of Mont
Pelee, a very similar method ls now
used by the American manufacturers
of wood pulp. The logs of fir are
placed in a strong chamber, and these
subjected to the action of superheated
steiini until the water ln every cell Is
converted Into explosive gns. The
chamber ls then opened and the log
.•.ilodes, converting Itself Into wood
powder.—London Spectator.

—How quickly Rheumatism and
Dropsy can be cured when the right
medicine Is used is shown ln the case
of Mr. Jno. McDonald, a retired farmer living at 130 Langlois Avenue here.
Mr. McDonald says:
"For two years I was troubled with
Rheumatism and Dropsy. My log3
were terribly ■ swollen, and though I
tried many medicines nothing gave
me any rolief until I tried Dodd's Kidney Pillu. Two boxes of them eved
me so completely that I have had no

A Berlin correspondent writes: On
tho occasion of l'rince Herbert Bismarck's death, numerous anecdotes
and stories have been revived relating to tho Grand Old Man qf Germany, tho Iron Chancellor, ln an interview, the present curator of the
University of Bonn, Privy Councillor
von Rottenburg, who for many years
acted as chief of Prince Bismarck's
chancery, relates many Interesting
anecdotes. Prince Bismarck, he says,
showed special sympathy for Dis_
raoli. Gladstone, on the other hand.
did not enjoy any special favor, although on some points he admitted
his greatness, and especially his extraordinary knowledgo in financial affairs. On hearing of the bombardment;
of Alcxandrin, he exclaimed: "At
last! It should have happened long
ago."
On ono occasion the Chancellor
spoke in tho Ileichstng of tho F.nglish
Prime Minister as "my English colleague." Afterwards, whilst at dinner, one of his neighbors expressed
his surprise at the appellation, remarking that as far as he knew his
highness was no friend of Gladstone's
and therefore Gladstone could be no
friend of his. Count Bismarck replied, Jokingly, "The word 'colleague' was meant in reference to our
passion for trees. I cultivate their
growth, and Gladstone hews them
down."
Reason! for a Private Cemetery,
The family of a member of Purlft-
ment from Yorkshire has a private
graveyard and hns had lt for several
generations. The founder of it was a
Quaker, and the rector of the parish
in which he lived said to him after a
dispute on religious matters: "Well,
lf you don't come to church when
you are alive you will when you are
dead." But the Quaker thought otherwise and founded the burial place,
which is used to this day.

FENCE WIRE SHOULD NOT BE
TAXED.
The Dominion . Government did a
good thing for the farmers of Canada
when It placed certain grades of fence
wire on the free list a few years ago.
Since then galvanized smooth wire
Nos. 9, 12 and 13, which nre most used
fln farm fencing, has been kept down
in price to a place wliich enabled thousands of farmers to replace old unsightly, wasteful, wooden fences with
neat, new wire structures, thereby Improving their own property and enhancing the value of the surrounding
neighborhood.' Now lt transpires that
pressure is being brought to bear upon
the Government to go back to the old
order of things by imposing a customs duty on these grades of wire.
That such a change would work Injury
to the farming community admits of
no argument. At present, practically
none of the grades of wire on the free
list are manufactured in Canada, so
that any duty that would be put on
the wire would prove an equal tax
upon the consumer—the farmer. A
tariff of say 25 per cent, would undoubtedly enhance the cost of fencing fully ten to fifteen cents por rod.
This would mean that the owner of a
medium-sized farm would have to
bear an extra tax of fully $150 to
fence his farm. Were fencing an unimportant matter there would be no
reason for alarm, but with the passing of the old fences, and the Increasing attention to stock raising, new
fencing is an absolute necessity.
In the older parts of the Dominion
the improvement of farm buildings
and the construction of new fences
have been making very rapid strides
during the past few years, and lt
would prove a very unfortunate matter If a check were given to this much-
needed advance by the Imposition of
a tax that could work no benefit to
the farmer and at the same time hamper tho Canadian manufacturers ot
fencing who use wire as a raw material. Rather than hamper farm Improvement, and demoralize an Industry Important to agriculture, by placing wire which ls now admitted free
of duty on the double list, lt would
be much hotter to wipe out the present tariff of 20 per cent, on Nos. 7
and 11, which would enable farmers
to get a stronger style of fence without Increasing the cost

In this series of life sketches of the
men who are the public recorders.
and, to a large and increasing extent,
the moulders of public opinion,
throughout the Canadian West, three
characteristics are observable in them
as a class—first and primarily, their
youth; second, their enterprise, and
third, their energy.
Journalism is pre-eminently a profession for young men. For one man
engaged therein who has passed five
and thirty of life's milestones Ihere
must be many who are less than that
age. Perhaps it is because, like the
somewhat kindred profession of teaching, newspaper work is often regarded, by those engaged therein, not as
a life-work, but as a temporary means
of securing, amid attractive surroundings, the means necessary to complete
i a life training ln law, medicine, or
some other occupation. Another reason may be that newspaper men, who
bf necessity come Into touch with
business men who instantly appreciate
ability, are drafted off into other lines
of activity, by a continuous absorption carried out through more tempting remunerative rewards. And, after a few years the glamor of newspaper work largely wears off to the
men who are In the business, and the
steady "grind" of dally work becomes
more and more the outstanding feature of the life. For newspaper work
is a "show-down" day by day. The
good editorial in last week's issues, or
the big "scoop" made yesterday, won't
avail anything to-day If your competl
tor gets or has tho better news service. A newspaper differs from a
bank ln that it can have no "rest," no
"reserve." A grocer who deals honorably
by his customers Increases their num-
ber.and after a time can leave all details to subordinates, and secure a good
income while enjoying a well-earned
rest as the result of honest dealing. So can a lawyer with his Client-,
and almost every other profession or
business. But with the editor it is not
ao. Yesterday's success cannot atone
for to-day's failure. The reading public consider nothing but the issue
they are reading; they do not relate
it to its predecessors. Hence, as
many an old newspaper man has re
marked, when he was weary of the
forced gait ho had tp maintain to
keep abreast of younger and more energetic men—"The newspaper bus!
ness is a good business—to get out
of."
The Canadian West, like every
other young country, is essentially the
land of opportunity for young men.
Newspaper work, as before noted, being in an especial degree a young
man's profession, lt Is to be expected
.that in Western Canada the men controlling the preBs would in average
hge be much below those in other
:Part9 of the continent. This is re-
jtnarkably true. "Boy editors" aro
'not phenomena tn Manitoba and the
••Northwest Territories, as they are
elsewhere. Mere lads who have not
attained their majority are frequently
found ln charge of papers whose Influence and Importance are ln inverse
ratio to the age of those in whose
charge they aro found. Some of the
men who cut. the largest swath ln the
West at the present time woro editors
before they were out of their teens.
Walter Scott, M.P., and J. J. Young, M.I.
are well known cases In point. And
there Is at the present time, no lack
of men as young as they, when first
they began to make their mark, who
promise to become equally prominent
—men who display the same energy,
thoroughness, tact and enterprise as
those who havo writ thoir names
large on the tablets of western pro
gress. Such a one la John S. Brun
dlge, of the Miami Herald.
Mr. Brundlge has Just reached
man's estate, as recognized by law,
being 21 years of age. At a time when
most men are looking around to "discover their aptitudes, and to select
their life work, he has "found himself," has done much gaod in his
chosen profession, and made a personal record that stamps him as one
whose future career will be well
worth watching. He has served in
every grade of both the mechanical
and editorial branches of newspaper
work, and by his own ability anil Industry has promoted himself ln all of
them. He reached the rank of foreman ln the same office which he
"devilled," and did this ln the brief
space of four years. Tho mere re
cltal of this fact Is testimony sufficient as to his energy. PerhapB such
a record ls unique ln the craft. From
washing printing rollers to writing
editorials—he has desclbed tho whole
of the wide arc, and In a period ol
time almost unparalleled ln Its brevity. "Devil," apprentice, Journeyman-
printer, foreman — reporter, editor,
proprietor—and all between May Hi,
1900, and the fall of 1904! Mr. Brim-
dlge's friends say that "push" nml
enterprise are his dominating characteristics. In the face of the facts
they may well bo believed.
Mr. Brundlge Is of United Empire
extraction,     his     parents    residing
at   Shelburne   at   the   lime   of   his
birth. He was educated at the public
schools of that town, and at the age
of seventeen commenced his Journalistic career on the Free Press of
that thriving Ontario town. As already stated, when he left that paper
It was in the capacity of foreman. His
eyes had already been turned toward
the Northwest, and in April of 1901
:io camo to Winnipeg, and after a
brief survey of the field he commenced negotiations for tho purcliiiso
if tlio Miami Herald, which he finally
secured. Tho chnngo in proprietor
nnd editorship was nt onco noticeable
in the Improved-tone and appearance
if the paper. Week after weok its
circulation grew, and its advertising
columns became a more adequate
reflection of the mercantile Importance of the town In which tlio Herald

Is published. Attention to the many
details of mechanical make-up Is evident in every issue, and few papers
published ln a town of similar population will show to greater advantage than that published by Mr.
Brundlge. His Jobbing plant, too,
has been selected with care. It was
almost wholly supplied by tho Tor
onto Type Foundry Company, and is
as much a tribute to the beauty of
the typo faces carried by that institution as to the knowledge and taste
shown by their purchaser.
As a local newspaper the Herald
leaves littlo to be desired, when the
rango of action its editor has marked
out for himself ia considered. The
happenings of the district are received with faithfulness, and oftentimes with humor. Of this humor, by
the bye, Mr. Brundlge has a notable
gift, and In addition is somewhat of
a poet. When he was on the Shelburne Free Press his comic poetry
on current, events and well-known
men was watched for with interest by the paper's readers, and
since _his acquisition of the Herald
he has frequently broken out in the
same direction. Since he haB assumed the ownership and editorship
of the Herald Its business has almost
doubled, which, for a nine months'
record, speaks for Hsclf as to the
energy and enterprise of its proprietor. Taken for all ln all the
Miami Herald man may be described
as a "comer"—one from whom things
may be heard In the future. In his
brief tenure editorial responsibility
he has approved himself both for
ability and Judgment, and je bids
fair to fully realize the conlldt. «r x-

Some Hint. For Economy.
The cheap cuts of beef nre not at all
available In these days In n hotel or
restaurant because the patrons, mainly
men, are suspicious of any madeup
meat dishes.
In the private household, however,
there ls no reason why the less expensive meats cannot be made as palatable as need be, and of their nourishing
qualities there Is no dispute. For example, the bottom of tbe round of
steak may be rendered tender by long
cooking as a pot roast and ls delicious
wheu rightly done.
Our friend the hotel man sounded
a note of warning concerning hamburg
steak. Hound steak cut fine ln a machine ls as nourishing and ln the opinion of many people as good as the ten-
derest of short steak. Beware, however, of buylnp that which Is fouud ready
made on the Counter of a large market.
Hamburg steak, like sausage, is the
destiny of a great many scraps and a
great deal of partially tainted meat.
That which is made to the customer's
order from a piece whlcb he sees cut
off or which lie knows Is cut off for
his use is safe and good. Cases have
been known, however, where even this
Is not enough precaution, for some
niarketmen are careless about the
chopper and allow the bits of meat and
juice to dry ou the machine.
Indeed the method par excellence ls
to buy your own "icat, take lt home,
remove the grlsli. aud tough skin,
wipe it well and then put it through
your own chopper, when lt may be fine
or coarse, according to your taste.—

The farmer's life is a constant battle with the weeds. A farm ge'i better and better or worse and worse ; if the weeds are not''-
defeated tbey soon bmy farm and farmer under their parasitic legions. Mid the struggle with the weeds still another struggle'gott
on, the fight against gratnlew stalks and shrivelled, shrunken giain. Like begets like and every grain stalk is bound, if breeding
be neglected, to have many undeveloped, shrunken or unfertile grains thereon. If they are planted what happens ?—more grain
stalks of the same kind spring up, the pollen from their sickly tips fertilizes other heiIthy tips and begets a grain field full of barren
stalks taking just as much nourishment from the soil as actual grain bearers. Likewise, the weeds appear, no effort being made to
rid the seed giain u{ their foul presence, and they have increased a hundredfold.
The problem is clear: you as a practical man, know these troubles as grim realities and you should plan to stop them, i-et
as show you how you can do it with a
CHATHAM FANNING MILL
how each year your land will become freer and freer of weeds until the farm is clear of them : let us show yoa how you can get
fancy prices for every bushel of vour grain for seed. !»<>■* your farm can be made to yield 40 bushels of No. i hard wheat to the acre.
'I'he Chatham running $1 ill is the worker of these farm wonders. It is a seed Separator that rids your harvest of all foul
weed-seeds, pigeon weed, cockle, mustard and especially wild oats. I Mums (mil weed-seeds and cracked, imperfect grains from money-
takers to money-makers for you feed them to stock for profit instead of replanting them to renew their soil-exhausting growth and
labor loss.
The Chatham Fanning Mill is a Seed Grader that delivers to you, pure as virgin gold, the large, full, plump and perfect grains
that sell at top prices or, ifsown, will bring torth from your land other harvests more perfect still.
No farm pays just because it happens so to do. It takes brains to win. *AVeeding with a hoe is a heart* break ing task, the '.
cultivator is but little better: why not get rid of that pest of weeds altogether when a Chatham Fanning Mill makes it such an easy
matter ? Some weed plants carry as many as 375,000 seeds on a single stalk : think what that means it they art replanted. There
is hardly any market for low grade grain. Let a quantity of cockle, mustard or wild oats creep into your product and down goet
your grade while down goes your price. If you sow uniform, perfect grain it will all ripen at the same time; there will be no loss
from harvesting short, immature, unripe grain-heads, and practically the whole crop will grade No. 1. Old style mills hardly did
more than separate train from chaff, light and heavy grains were more or less mixed and foul weed seeds ever present. To plant
such seed meant rapid crop degeneration and a weed exhausted soil. The only Fanning Mill lhat cleans and grades with abso
lute accuracy and perfection every seed or grain that grows on earth is the Chatham.
IT SEPARATES OATS FROM WHEAT BETTER AND FASTER THAN ANY MACHINE MADE.
There are many other fanning mills but the Chatham is the superior of them all.
It has an automatic device which keeps the screens and riddles free from clogging : it his 17 screens, insuring a wide range
of w«.rk and accurate adaptability lo the particular work at hand : it has both side and end shtke : a screw feed insures regularity
and its automatic bagging device is the greatest lubor saver on any mill made.
IT IS EASY RUNNING, QUICK ACTION, AND CLEANS 40 to 60 BUSHELS OF GRAIN PER HOUR
Repairs, which arr rarely needed, are cheap, always on hand and easy to get The
Chatham Fanning Mill nm been a priie winner wherever shown. The Manitoba
whial that won the Grand Prise at the Paris Exposition ol 1900 and ihc Gold medal
at Charleston, S.C., 1902, was cleaned with a Canadian Chatham Fanning Mill.
The prize grains from Oregon and Colorado at St. I-ouis World's Fair were cleaned
by a Chatham F.'.nning Mill. Over 100,000 are in use, every one giving unqualified
satisfaction. Mills rold in 1867 are in use to-day, as gold as ever. The Chatham
Fanning Mill is absolutely guaranlecd for five years. These are a few of the
reasons why Ihe Chatham Fanning Mill is bctler lhan any other mill made. The

The Market   Question.
EA.tor "Mount Pleasant Advocate."
It was with considerable satisfaction
I read your editorial on the Market
Question. It there la one .thing more
tlian another at the present time that
Interests us (particularly hsads of fam-
IDesX, it Is a market. There is no
gainsaying the fact that the cost of
living la a serious problem to the- family man of moderate means. Personally I know of one storekeeper In Vancouver whose wife goea over to the
market at New Westminster about every week and makes hor put-chases. I
am also informed, with what truth I
cannot vouch for, that some of our
grocers, etc., do the same. The point
I wish to make Is not the fact of their
going to New Westminster market but
the neceFaity and advantage that takes
them there. When first I heard of my
friends going to New Westminster, I
thought It wrong that a man who made
all his money in Vancouver should go
to another town to spend it. I think
different now. It is man's flrst duty
to live. Give him access to the land
or product of the land and he can do
so; deprive him of that and poverty
and discontent result. Continue to
urge this. Location, too, is important The site you suggest Is a good
one. We should be glad Aid. Baxter
Is on the committee and I personally
hope lie wUl leave no stone unturned
to bring the matter to a successful Issue. The people expected and had a
right to expect that something would
be done and why a comparative stranger (even though of supposedly extraordinary administrative ability) should
be allowed to exercise a free hand in
spending money on English Bay. While
this vital question of helping to make
living cheaper is not only Ignored but
tried to be shelved ls—at least to some
of us—strange, and don't think me not
In favor of the improvement of English
Bay. No air. I also very much re-
gret tbe necessity that compelled reduction of Park Estimates. What a
glorious heritage we havo, but if we
cannot live comfortably what 'good Is
lt? simply not enjoyed. I would sug-
gest to the Aldermen who think of op
-| posing this that a day of reckoning will
come for them as It did for some of the
late Council who failed to do their
duty   to  the   people.

It la just a common cold, people nay,
there's no danger in that Admitting tlicir
t-Utement, then there are uncommon colds,
colds which arc dangerous ; for many a
fatal sickness begini. with a cold. If we
could tell the common cold from the uncommon we could feel quite safe, Cut we
can't. The uncommon variety is rarely
recognized until it has fastened its hold on
the lungs, and there are symptoms of con-
tutu pt ion.
At the first symptoms the careful person
will heed the warning by taking a milQ
laxative ; some vegetable pill that will not
disturb the system or cause griping- About
the best is "Dr. Pierce's Pleasant Pellets."
If the cold starts with a cough, and it
persiats then some local treatment for this
condition should be taken. A well known
alterative extract, which has been highly
recommended by thousands of users, is
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery.
This tonic compound is composed of an
extract of roots aud herbs and has a soothing cifect upon the mucous membrane*

works in the proper and reasonable way,

It contains no alcohol to shrivel up the

PRESENT HAPPINESS.
Oh, the sun shines bright, and the sky
Is clear,
I'll be happy while I may,
For I saw a face whose shining eyes
Looked Into mine to-day,
That countenance     bright dispels the
gloom
When the day ls d.rk and drear,
And there is always light for mo
Whene'er that face ls near.
And so my heart is free ond light,
I'll be happy while I may,
Uc-cause  those happy eyes of blue
Looked Into mine to-day.
The Princess gown Is excessively popular, and lt ls used even for tailored
gowns, either In the way of a really
one-piece gown, having a drapery(
across the bust and a lingerie gnlmpe
under the shoulder straps, or in the
form of a corselet skirt and separate
bolero. This last, made In walking
length with a plaited flounce, Is very
fetching and 13 being done, by the best
tailors. Another tailor gown that Is
very smart has a slightly fulled walking skirt of checked lalnage and a
pointed wool corselet fastened in front
with choux of black velvet. A fichu of
the wool piped with black Is draped
about the low square opening, framing
lingerie chemisette with plaits, bows
and inlettlngs of lace. Over the fichu
of wool is laid narrow, Bcant frill of
hemstitched or embroidered lawn, and
at the elbows there are lingerie cuffs
or a starched and embroidered linen
oversleeve or wrinkled white glove.
Hats covered with shirred taffeta ln
glace tones, the folds radiating from a
taffeta button- in the centre of the
crown, and forming a frilled or cord
ed edge on the border of the brim, are
very coquettishly trimmed with a mass
of short tips placed at the back, where
lt is tipped vertically.
The most important feature of the
present gown ls its short and fanciful
little sleeve. It ls worn universally on
all smart afternoon gowns, both for
visits, luncheons, teas, tor the picture
show and charity bazaar. The long
glove is in white, though beige and
pale gray are often chosen with beige
and gray gowns. A long black glove
looked smart the other day with a
black cloth gown perforated In English
embroidery design over a white taffeta
foundation. Its elbow sleeve was a
puffed affair looped With knots of black
velvet ribbon, and a double frill of
white taffeta piped with black was tied
with a black velvet band. The black
velvet celnture was a pointed corselet
trimmed with, white taffeta buttons
and at the throat there was a smart
Irish lace cravat. Her tiny toque was
in vivid orange with a black aigrette.
Linen costumes, In strong durable
colors, are a noticeable feature this
season for forenoon wear in the open.
They have that convenient "trotting"
length, together with the trig tailor
treatment of simplicity. The trimming
usually ls secured from the same material, sometimes from a contrasting
linen, turned Into clever applied designs, these being outlined either with
stltchlngs or a white finish of some
sort. Pleasing skirt effects also spring
from the skirt top, reaching to the
knee or a little above lt, and then cut
#ut below Into parts which form a
bottom design to the underskirt. Long
narrow panels from the hips downwards, framing ln box plaits, still remain In favor. Much newer are the
bias shaped strap designs, which sometimes cross on the ends, and then form
a series of waved lines. They enter
also Into the bodice and sleeve trimming, all of these depending very much
upon the sort of outlining given to
them.
LINEN COSTUMES FOR MATRONS.
More matronly are the linen costumes, trimmed with what may be called robe designs In embroidery of the
eyelet and closed comhlnatlon wrought
with a linen thread to match the fa
bric. An example of much distinction
was made of a deep shade of bluish
mauvre linen, one of the new tints ln
vogue and not yet very familiar. The
skirt was long and finished on the edge
with a pointed scallop heavily worked
and of suitable size. Above this edge
was wrought embroidery in a free bold
design, partly in overstitch, partly ln
eyelet work, and most effective because
it was softened by the thread being
all in one tone with the linen. The
bodice had its share of the same embroidery both front and back, covering the shoulders well and ending half
way below. The sleeves were coat
models and of the same linen, with a
moderate flare at the bottom, where
the match embroidery was rather deep
and had the same scallop finish on the
edge. The main feature was the bias-
shaped basque to match and rippling
In fullness across the back. In depth
lt was almost the familiar three-quarter coat length, and embroidered to
correspond in a deep design. Compared with other linen costumes suited to
matrons, and worn for one or two past
seasons, this one was a great advance
both in style and ln character.
The   selection   of   a   cheese course
should be given careful forethought, as
it is one of the small but highly impor
tant parts of any meal.   There is very
little printed  advice upon this partic
ular  subject,   for  the  most  elaborate
cheese  course  requires little prepara
Hon, and the compilers of cook books
seem to think they fulfil every require
ment by giving a few recipes'for the
preparation or cooking of cheese.   The
entire matter of cheese serving seems
to be based upon unwritten laws which
the hostess ls supposed to know by in
tuition.
At either dinner or luncheon, the
cheese course often takes the place of
the salad, but especially ls this the case
with a luncheon, since so many delicious salads are possible with cheese
as the principal Ingredient; the best
of these perhaps, being the Frozen
Cheese Salad.
The salad Is often served with the
game, but when there is no game
course, It follows the roast or an entree
and is served as a course by itself, and
then the cheese salads with a French
dressing that are suitable for eating
with game or poultry, and whenever a
mayonnaise salad ls used lt should be
served by Itself as a distinct course.
With such a salad course, cheese of
certain kinds may be served and this
may take the form of cheese, rama-
qulns, cheese wafers, cheese straws,
croquettes, or any of the choice rich
foreign cheeses, served raw, cut ln
dainty cubes. However, there are certain palates that prefer Neufchatel
cheese, Imported or domestic, or the
delicate mildness of the Philadelphia
cream cheese to any of the richer, more
highly flavored foreign cheeses, and
one may serve any of these, always,
however, giving the preference to the
richer varieties.*" In our best markets
are to be found all the different kinds
of cheese manufactured; the imported
cheeses take their names from the
places where they are made, and not
only have they made these places fa
mous, but the cheeses themselves are
world-famous for their food value, and
Individual flavor, and for the fact that
a piece of rich cheese is known to aid
appreciably In digesting a heavy meal;
therefore it has a therapeutic value,
