Sir Chandos got out'n cigar, but
after a glance along tho terrace, refrained from lighting it.
"Well," be snid, shifting bis smnll.
tightly-shod foot uneasily. "WoU,
ynu enn't lie blind—no one could be—
lo the fact thnt. .lulian Shore is—cr
—very much in love wilh you, my

Sho laughed wearily.
"You tnlk as if Vnnc were nn old

"N'u, he's nut nn old man, but—

ceased to take an interest In life,
and by gnd, when that's the case,

in the man! Then—then ho is a reckless devil; you snw him riding that
horse of his yesterday? It was a
marvel he wasn't thrown. Mark my
words, he'll break his neck some
Her face went white In the darkness and her hands clenched each other.
"Until he docs—" sho began, then
"So what I say Is," resumed Sir
Chandos with the redundance and
emphasis of a half tipsy man, "keep
the two strings to your bow, my
dear girl. For instance, there's no
need to treat Shore so cavalierly.
He's n decent chap, he's fond of you,
and it's my opinion that he'll come
into this sooner or later—" He swept
his hand across the view comprehensively. "At any rate, I'm dead certain thnt you're making no headway with Vane. Of course with your
beauty—by gad, I'm as proud of it
ns you t_rol—you might many anybody; but, well, you'vo got into the
pace hero and— Now, take my advice and think the matter over."
She laughed again.
"If I do not marry Vane, if I have
lost him," she said, almost to herself, "it does not matter—"
'^'That's what I say," her precious
father caught her up, with an eager
hiccough. "It's been my motto all
my life—and a very prosperous life
it's been—that, if you can't get tho
moon, good cream cheese is an admirable substitute. Now do bo a
sensible girl, my dear Judith!"
He stretched out a wavering hnnd
to lay it upon her shoulder, but sho
shrank slightly but perceptibly, and
Sir Chandos. carrying his hand to
his moustache and murmuring, "I'll.
Just go nnd got a drink. Too much
salt ln that last savoury," shuffled
jauntily back to the smoking-room.
Julian, with a ixxxln face and a
throbbing heart, was stealing away
when he heard another step on the
terrace, and ho waited. It was Vane's.
Judith also heard it, and with a
smothered sigh turned towards him.
"Who is it?" said Vane. "Ah, it's
youl" as she moved into the light
from the window. "Have you seen
Julian? They want him for bridge."
"No," she said in the soft, low
and deliriously musical note which
always came into her voice when she
spoko to him. He left the drawing-
room some  time ago."
"Gone into that den of his, I suppose. If so, it's useless to attempt to
draw him. What a good fellow he is,
isn't he?"
"Yes?" she said, half interrogatively, as If she knew he had a purpose Jn  his praise.
"Such a—a likeable chap," said
Vane with tho awkwardness with
which a man approaches a delicate
subject. "And he's clever, too. Tho
sort of man who would muke his
mark ln the world if—if he hnd an
He lit a cigarette, tossing the
match almost on to Julian, nnd
smoked furiously fur a moment or
"You—take n grout interest in

that Julian  hnd to strain his ears.
"Ratherl" assented Vuiic, "and naturally, seeing tlmt ho will fullow me
"Will—follow you?" sho repeated,
Vane nodded. "Yes. I shall never
marry." She moved out of the light.
and leant ngninst the railing in her
old attitude. "I'm one of thoso fellows who  are  belter single."
"Ah, I understand!" sho breathed
with a long-drawn sigh.
Vano frowned nnd set his teeth.
"See here, Judith," ho snid in tho
tone of a mnn who has resolved to
speak his mind nnd to spare neither
himself nor his bearer, "I don't think
you do. Of course I know you aro
thinking of the past and—ami our old
engagement. You don't mind my
speaking of it? Why should you?"
"Why should 1?" she said in *
still voice.
"Quite so. That's all past, and I
don't want you to think you have
anything to reproach yourself with.
Wo—woll, we made a mistake, that's
all; and It was precious lucky foi
you that you discovered it befor* it
,was tot> late!"
"Was It I only who discovered it?"
she asked.
Vane hesitated for tt moment. It
is nover easy to tell a woman that
you have ceased to love her.
"Let us say that you were the
first to mako the discovery," ho said,
gently. "We won't discuss it."
"No; it isn't necessary," she said
In a strange voice, as if she wero
holding herself under control. "You
have told mo enough. I—jilted yon,
Vane; but—you found consolation.
tfhere is nnother woman!"
Vane did Dot start, but he set his
toeth and his brows as if she had
Btruok him. For a moment he wns
silent, then, looking straight before
himf he said grimly:
"You aro right, there is—there wus
another woman." ,
Hor hand stole to her bosom    and
clutched the laco there. Sho had hop- I
cd against hope  for a swift    denial; ,
the  confirmation  of  hor  dread    was
almost    mora than, she could    bear, '
Scarcely breathing she stole a little
closer to him.
"Tell—tell me about her," she
whispered. .„
He shrank agaiil; but after a pause,
j during which she thought ho must
hear the wild beating of her heart,
he said:
"1 don't think I ran. There are
some things— No, no, just lot it rest
at that."
"Is she—is she anyone  T know?"
"No," ho replied almost curtly.
"She is, of courso, vory beautiful?
I—I can't imagine you caring for a
plain  woman."
He drew his hand across his brow.
"She— Let it rest." he said,
hoarsely. "I did not want to speak
of myself, but—Julian."
She stood motionless, ns if she
hnll not heard liim, then as if she
had suddenly become conscious nf his
words, she said, in a voice absolutely emotionless:
"Mr. Julian Shore?"
"Yes. Judith, he—has fallen In
love with vou."
"And you—you hnvo come tn plead
his cnuse!" she said swiftly through
her closed  teeth.
"I hnve come to plead his cnuse."
he assented, resolutely. "It's like my

Prominent Playwrights In England Disclose   Their   Modus    Scribendi—
Many Ways of Building Plays.
There ls generally an air of mystery
surrounding the workshop and methods
of the successful dramatist. That a certain fortunate band of men should be
constantly turning out .ilays which
meet with the favor of the public enhances the popular Idea that there must
be some royal road to success in play-
writing, though as a matter of fact
every playwright has his own particular method, unlike that of any other.
Mr. R. C. Carton, the author of "Mr.
Hopklnson," fur instance, has a method
quite his own. He keeps what he terms
a pickle-tub, or, in oilier words, a book
In which he Jots down ideas which occur to him at different times -when
walking or riding in trains and omnibuses. When he decides to write a play
he refers to this book, picks out what
characters he prefers and begins to
weave his romance around thom. But
even before he bus the story properly
fixed in his mind be christens them.
He Is very particular as to his choice of
names, and admits Hint muny of the
names of his characters nre chosen
while looking in shop windows.
Grundy's Method.
Mr. Sydney Grundy works in quite a
different fashion, His first idea is to
get his story complete, whicll he does
out of doors or while sitting ln his garden. Then he sets to work to conquer
his entrances and exits, and It is interesting to know that he does all his work
tlirough tho medium of a draughtboard, moving the pieces from place to
place, according to the movements of
his characters ln the play. Then he be-
g*ns to actually compose his piny, and,
with the draught-tbonrd slill beforo bim,
writes steadily day by day, with few
corrections, till It is finished.
Mr. Cecil Raleigh, the author of so
many Drury Lane successes, admits
that the majority of his plays Hash
across his mind at once, and he writes
straight ahead what has oecurrod to
him in that moment. Pinero once gave
him a tip which ho bas borne ln mind
ever since, and 'this was: "A play is a
success or a failure from the moment
the Idea Is flrst born ln ths mind of
tho author." It is said that his play,
"Hearts are Trumps," was completed
in two months from the (lay he began,
although he never writes fer moro than
three hours at a time.
How Barrie Works.
Mr. J. M. Barrie writes his plays
whenever the mood takes liim. With
the whole plan of the play mapped out
In his mind lie sits down to write, and
does not leave hU task till the play ls
finished. The idea of his flrst play,
"Walker, London," which made bim famous, occurred to him one night while
he was walking round Nottingham Castle, and It is Interesting to know thnt
"Peter Pan" was evolved at a children's
party. He works out all his scenes in
his head, but insists on having his play
complete before putting pen to paper,
with the result that there are few corrections ln the manuscript when It
goes to the typists.
Mr. Haddon Chambers, before he begins a play, makes very detailed notes
of every incident, and then as soon as
he is ready to begin the first act he sits
down and revises these notes, cutting
out everything which he thinks might
be omitted from the play so as to make
the story more compact. He says that
It ls nothing short of a terror to him io
write the first two pages of a new play,
but when ho has warmed to the work
It runs smoothly. As a rule he finds
the second act the most difficult to
write, and if it does not run as he
wishes he will throw the play aside for
several months and let it simmer in
his brain during this time, finally returning to lt sufficiently enthusiastic to
continue to the end. He gets his ideas
mostly when walking, and the inspiration of "The Golden alienee." his last
play, came to him suddenly while walking in Fifth avenue, New York.
And How Serious   Results  Can  be  Avoided
by Use of
Dr. Chase's Syrup of Unseed and Turpentine
There is one way In which the rav-
vages of consumption can be very
materially lessoned and that is by the

such as Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed

Prof. Dewar on Whiskey.
At North London Police Court recently Mr. Fordham continued the
hearing of the summonses under the
Food and Drugs Act against Messrs.
Wells and Davldge, licensed traders, of
Holloway, for selling as Scotch and
Irish whiskey tlie product of the patent slill, or silent or neutral spirit.
Prof. Sir James Dewar defined whiskey as follows: ""ft ls a generic name
given to the varieties of ardent spirit
as prepared in Scotland and Ireland
from the distillation of the fermented
infusion of grain—technically called
tho wash." At the present time ft was
impossible to set up a standard as to
what whiskey should really contain In
the way of by-products, lt was certain, however, that the by-products
wero in greater proportion In the pot
still whiskey, yet chemists hnd not yet

In cross-examination Sir James Dewar said that if pot still spirit wns sent
to London nnd mixed with silent spirit
the mixture would not be Seoteh whiskey.

It Pays to Select and Breed Carefully
For the Best Hens.
Many years ago we were content
with tho hen that produced twenty-
! five or thirty eggs in a year. When the
stateinent was made that hens could
produce a hundred eggs, It was declared absurd. Then the suggestion was
made in the columns of this paper that
the 200-egg hen was near at hand. Considerable comment was caused by this,
yet there are many proofs at hand that
hens have produced ln one year, under
perfectly good management, as many
as 200 eggs.
There are not nearly so -many of
these as there should be, nor as there
could be, lf people would carefully
select tbelr breeding stock for that
particular purpose. We have before us
a statement of several pens of fowls.
One produced an average of 120 eggs,
two others about 150 eggs, one pen 188
eggs, another pen about 200. Eggs
were hatched from each of these pens,
nnd the best egg-producing pulleta of
all that'were hatched came from the
hens which laid the eggs In the pen
that averaged 200 eggs per year.
We know what a terrible strain lt is
upon the constitutional vigor of a hen
to produce as many as 180 to 200 eggs
in a year. This ls most likely to be
done by pullets ln their flrst year, and
we believe that if these same pullets
would be properly cared for and kept
Into the spring of their second year
as hens and not worked too hard for
the egg production, the eggs from
them would establish a line of egg-
producing poultry that lt would be
hard to overcome.
Much more attention Is given to selecting the stock from which fine milch
cows are grown than we recommend
for producing a .laying strain of poultry. When the time comes to hatch the
chicks In the spring, many of us aro
much too anxious to place the flrst
eggs we can lay our hands on under the
hen to be hatched or Into the Incubator, as may be; but If we would select
ln advance these heavy egg-producing
pullets of the year before and keep
them for the express purpose of laying
the eggs from which to hatch our laying pullets for the next winter, we
would be surprised at the startling increase of egg yield that we would have
as a result of such selection.
Pullets hatched from eggs that come
from hens that only produce tblrty-flve
or forty eggs a year do not Inherit the
laying instinct, rather would they Inherit the propensity of the mother hena
not to lay so many eggs. While, on tho
other hand, eggs from the continuous
nnd large egg producers would be pullets that would naturally become large
egg producers themselves.
That like will produce like is a very
old saying. It ls a saying worthy of
consideration In the poultry business,
Hens that are heavy egg producers are
more than likely to produce their own
kind, while hens that are poor egg producers are doubly certain to produce
those less prolific than themselves.
Another feature of vital Importance
ls the selection of male birds from the
hens that have beep fine egg producers
In lino for several generations. If the
proper amount of attention ls given to
both of these necessary requirements,
peoplo will find that the Increased egg
production ln their flocks will be so
markod as to be beyond all expectations. Hundreds of people complain
that their poultry does not produce any
egg*^ during the winter months, and
that they lay bo tew eggs during the
entire year as to make them unprofitable as egg producers; and while complaining of this known fact they will
continue year after year tb hatch their
pullets from the same hens that have
never laid enough eggs to pay for the
corn they eat. Then, again, many
people will read In tbelr papers how

More Gold ln the Ses.
The subject of gold in sea water and
tho possibility of profitably extracting
lt ls a fascinating one. A professor In
tho University of Brussels, M. P. de
Wilde, bas taken up tbe subject and
proposes a new method of getting out
tho precious metal. Sea wnter Is treated witli a strong add solution of chloride of tin at the rate of five cubic
centimeters (about one-third cubic inch)
to the ton. The gold forms with the tin
the compound known ns purple of cas-
slus, and when llmewater Is added
this Is fixed on the flaky precipitate of
magnesium hydrate, which falls to tho
bottom. From this the gold ls set free
by tbo addition of potassium cynulde
and can then be recovered by tbe usual
well known metbodB. Professor do
Wilde considers tbnt much of the gold
In Bea water Is thrown down to the bottom. Whether the gold can be profitably extracted by the above method does
not yet appear.—Loudon Globe.

There are just three absolute requirements for success in poultry

to scratch ih; and, third, to properly

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

Editor of the Volkszeitung, Winnipeg
No better indication of tlie desirability of tbo German as a citizen ol
Western Canada, and of the important
factor that he is becoming ii,
Wt'sli'i'ii Canadian life oould be
given than a sketch of the car-
em- of FT. II. Neufeld, and of the prog;
ress of the German weekly newspapei
which be edits and publishes ill tin
city    of Winnipeg—the Volks—litung.
Born in Europe on March 19, 1876,
Air. Neufeld came with bis parents to
America in 1889 and early in life ac-
quired, on a farm which his fathei
owned near Mountain Like in th<
.Stale of Minnesota, those habits ol
persistent Industry and solf-reliance
which has made him a leading; memboi
of bis race in the Province of Mani
tuba and in the Canadian West. When
unable to avail himself of the advantages of school ho studied in lib
leisure hours and practised his exercises while walking after the plough,
going for the cows, mowing, raking,
and during the dozen and ono occupations of a boy on a farm. For thret
months during each of those winter!
he attended tlio public school of Mountain Lake, having at the same time
charge of fourteen horses and twentj
or nioi'o cattle which bo had to feeo
and attend to morning and evening.
(lilted with musical tastes ill u
marked degree, Mr. Noufeld took a
course in vocal music and practice.,
singing every year with the Church oi
inu brethren, Having a line tirsi
tenor voico, he sang in male choruses
and choirs, mixed and -male quartette!
aad also as soloist in many parts oi
Ine United States.
In 18'Ju Mr, Neufeld, young, ambitious, aud eager lor knowledge, look

a business course in the same Academy.

Lno obvious opportunities lor a ber-
man newspaper in thu piovinti
oi Manitoba, however, attracted bin,
ul tins time anil he came to the city oi
Winnipeg, lie began the publication
ol tno "Beobaohter," a paper lol
youug people, "this Clinslliche Kin-
uei-uiuu,'' a Sunday .School paper, ami
Die "Volkszeitung,'' a German weekly.
The Volkszeitung; demanded sd much

tnat ho sold both thu "Boobaohter
and the "Kinderblatt" and devotee
all his business and literary ability tc

Volkszeitung. The determination was
fortunate and the Vulkszeitung has become a factor in the business, social.
and literary life of those of the German race ill Manitoba and the Canadian West since Mr. Neufeld became tin
proprietor three and a half years ago.
Ill June, 1905, the "Volkszeitung'
was incorporated as a joint stock
company with Mr. Neufeld as tin
principal stockholder and manager ot
tlio company.
The "Volkszeitung" will Soon entei
its fifth year of publication and its
readers are iu all parts of the world
where Gorman is read. Its principal
constituency is in Manitoba and the
Canadian West aud the publication is
accordingly a iirst-clasu advertising
The well-appointed job department

extensive business throughout the Canadian West iu German antl Kngiish

on the high-road to a successful career.
Highwaymen in Russia.
The old-fashioned "road-agent," or
highwayman, is practically a person
of the past, but there arc still some
parts of the world in which he flourishes. Tho present troubled conditions
in Russia havo mado certain isolated
parts of that country excellent Holds
for tjio operations of wandering Tartars. Quito recently a small stage
was held up near Akstafa, Transcaucasia, iu broad daylight. As the fundi
oauio nround a bend in the hilly road
sevoral mounted figures appeared.
There seemed to be no cause for apprehension, for the riders looked quite
peaceable. But when the coach bad
npproc.iod within about thirty feet ol
them they suddenly leveled their rifles and revolvers antl ordered the
driver to stop. The man threw Itp his
hands in fright, and several passengers, wondenng at the sudden stop,
put their heads from the windows,
Immediately the muzzles of revolvers
woro shovod in their faces nnd tliey
were commniided to step into the road.
While two of tho robbers guarded the
Stage driver and watched to soo that
none of the passengers drew . their
weapons, the others went tlirough the
pockets of the passengers antl rilled
the baggage and the mail bags. When
everything of value had been taken,
the highwaymen ordered the coach to
proceed. Though there was quite a
party of them they seemed to disappear the moment the stage started.
I-Mcept that the coach was really
robbed, the wholo performance was
juite like a comic opera hold-up and
,vas done quite as neatly.
Tlie experience In Austria, where
the average manufacturer furnishes
Ivvellings and fuel to his workmen
free of charge, has led to minimize
the number of strii.es.
A Degraded Peasantry.
The Russian peasant is controlled
by the Church, says Wolf Von Schier-
jrand in the Forum. He keeps the 150
holy and fast days in the year enjoined to him by the holy Synod, and he
maintains with his offerings and dues
die Olldrmous apparatus of the Church.
fhua the priests fatten on the half-
starved peasantry, depriving them ol
part of their scanty fare. And this
is but the economical loss the nioujik
differs. Fur- greater is the intellectual and moral loss whicll in this way
,s inflcted on him, keeping him in thut
unreasoning condition which amazes
al1 who first become acquainted
ivith Russia. The average yield per
.lore of the whole of the "black-earth
bolt" has steadily slink. It is now
lower than in any other 'country in
lHurope. It is, for instance, just one-
Uiii-,1 thnt of the average of Germany,
aud yet the latter has, by nature,
rather meagre soil. But the Russian
peasant is tno unprogl—isive and unintelligent to till his hind properly,
and too poor to buy manure or fertilizer. Hut the greatest drawback, in it
certain sense, is that the Russian
Government has helped to keep tin
peasant in his present degraded state
Indolent and improvident as a result
if centuries of serfdom, the Government has made him moro so: (1) by
insisting on liis keeping the 160 holj
Jays in the year wbicli the orthodox
church enjoins; (2) by compelling him
o pay his taxes—averaging in some
districts between 50 and 60 per cent,
if the gross crops—as Soon as the harvest is done, at a time when price-

Kites for Life Savers.
London.— F. Cody considers that n
boatload of shipwrecked persons who
have a kito to fly are .far more likely
to be rescued than a kiteless boatload.
lie argues that a kite 200 yards or so
up in the air has a better cbaneo of
being seen than a small boat low down
in tho water.
Ho has built a boat to exemplify bis
theory. It is an open three-tonner;
length, 21 feet; beam, 6 feet, and is
driven by petrol. It was launched on
Crystal Palace Lake tho other duy and
christened Lela by Mrs. Cody.
Cody invited a number of women to
step aboard and play the part of castaways. Away went the Lela up the
lake, and at the right moment Cody
unloosed a double-bodied bat-shapea
kite, six or seven feet long, which
soared into the air to a height of 200
yards, and it could he oasily understood how such an object out at sea
would attract the attention of a passing vessel, although miles away.
Cody intends to sail in the boat from
the Isle of Wight to Brighton and fly
the kite to seo how it attracts the attention of a steamer. Then he will
take tho Lela aboard some vessel sailing for South America and after two
days will be oast adrift.
He will haul tho kite, keeping it
flying until picked up by some passing
Vessel. Then, after a day or so, lie
will repeat the experiment, and so go
on until ho reaches South America.
The object is to provo that small lifeboats cannot drift along for any length
of time without being seen if they have
a kite flying.

Bernhardt Kissed the Reporter.
(From   "Success Magazine.)
Iu the eighties Sam Davis went to
Carson, Nevada, antl assumed the
editorship of the Carson "Appeal,"
which, before he went actively into
State polities, was one of the most
widely quoted oountry impels in the
United States. When Sarah Bernhardt first passed through Nevada on
her western'tour, the "Examiner/1 oi
San Francisco, wired Davis to board
the "divine Sarah's" train at Reno
and escort her into California—also to
get a good interview en route. Mr.
Davis made himself so agreeable tn
the entire company that Bernhardt
insisted thai (he "romantic monsioui
nl the press" he assigned hy the "Examiner to oscurt her through the
mazes of western life. Mr. Davis
turned San Francisco upside down for
her entertainment antl oven arranged
a number of attractions to show her
a sample of western activity under the
stress of high emotion. When the
company left San Francisco, antl farewells were being snid, Bernhardt
walked up to Davis in the presence ol
the admiring throng, and kissed him
on either cheek   tnd on the lips.
"On the cheeks." she excluimeil,
with a naive toss of her head, "for the
'Examiner' and the 'Appeal;' on the
lips for yourself."
Sam  Davis,   for the second  time  in
his life, blushed, but recovered himself in time to remark that there were
a whole lot more up-country papers
ho represented, r.ll of whicll would
like to have him return to Nevada
with similar tokens.
A Dog's Affection.
New York.—The story of a dog's affection for its little mistress, from
whom it woultl not lie separated even
by death, was brought here by the
steamer Columbia, which arrived recently from Glasgow, The Columbia
had a hard experience with the wintry gales wliich swept the Atlantic
during her entire voyage and the tossing and pitching of the steamer
contributed largely to the pathetic
tragody of the sea. Among the passengers on the steamer was Andrew
MacDonald, who was bringing his
four-year-old daughter Mary to America, for the benefit the sea voyage
might bo to her delicate health. The
little girl's collie dogs, Daisy aud lien,
accompanied them and until she was
taken ill Mary spent all her waking
hours with  hor pets.
When the storm became more severe
she- became violently seasick and during
the night she died. The dogs missed
their Httle mistress and whined eon-
fitautly until they were taken to the
cahill where preparations were heing
made to bury the child's body at sea.
When the body was taken on deck the
dogs were permitted to follow nnd during the reading of the funeral service
the collies tugged at the leashes which
held them. When the child's body-
was lifted to the rail ant! slid overboard Daisy broke from the man who
held her nntl leaped into the sea just
as the hotly of her little mistress disappeared beneath the waves. In another instant the dog hatl disappeared
from view.
The Flagging Energies Revived.—
Constant application to business is a
tax upon the energies, and if there be
not relaxation, lassitude and depression are sure to intervene. These
come from stomnch troubles. The
want of exercise brings on nervous
irregularities, anl the stomach ceases
to assimilate food properly. In this
condition Parmelee's Vegetable Pills
will be found a recuperative of rare
power, restoring the organs to healthful action, dispelling depression, and
reviving the flagging energies.

Concerning Oranges.
An eminent Japanese bacteriologist
has shown that the acids of lemons,
apples and other fruits—citric acid,
malic acid—are capable of destroying
all kinds of disease germs. Cholera
germs are killed in fifteen minutes by
lemon juice or apple juice, antl typhoid
fever germs are killed in half an hour
by these acids, even when considerably diluted If you squeeze a lemon
into a glass of water containing cholera germs antl let it stand fifteen 01
twenty minutes, yoll may drink the
water with impunity, as the germs will
be dead. These juices will kill other
disease germs. Instead of telling a
man to have his stomach washed out,
we can now tell him to drink orange
juice, which will cleanse the stomach
as thoroughly as a stomach tube, provided it be not a case of gastric catarrh If we have to deal with gastric
catarrh, in wliich there is a large
amount of tenacious mucus adhering
to the walls of the stomach, a stomach
tube is required to dislodge it but in
ordinary cases of sick headache, biliousness, foul tongue, bad breath, and
nervous headache, a fruit diet is a
wonderful purifier.

India's Horded Wealth.
India produces more than seven and
a hall million dollars worth of u"ltl
yearly, but the world at largo is none
the better off. Much Hold is also
shipped there, but little comes back.
Once let a gold coin net into a native's
bands antl there is the end of it. He
neither spends it nm- puts it in the
hank. Centuries of oppression, have
taught him to hoard, with the result
that all of his gold except that made
into .jewelry, is promptly buried. An
nble   authority   considers   that   in   the
Bombay Presidency alone is buried fid
million dollars worth of gold. In
China, too, matters are nearly as bad.
These two countries, India anil China,
aro estimated to absorb between them
12 tons of gold a yonr, practically ull
of which is lost forever.
