a mug tlttie he sat, wT—i"_is' arm
around her, questioning the classes.
He seemed to have taken his place between her and the dark shadow.
Joe Beach had been making poor
headway In arithmetic.
"I'll come over this evening, and
we'll see what's the trouble. It's all
very easy," the teacher said.
He worked three hours with the
young man that evening and filled him
with high ambition after hauling him
out of his difficulty.
But of all difficulties tbe teacher had
to deal with, Polly Vaughn was the
greatest. She was nearly perfect In all
her studies, but a little mischievous
and very dear to him. "Pretty"—that
is one thing all said of her there In
Faraway, and they said also with a
bitter twang that she loved to He abed
and rend novels. To Sidney Trove the
word "pretty" was Inadequate. As to
lying abed and reading novels, he was
free to say that he believed in It.
"We get very indignant about slavery in the south," he used to say, "but
how about slavery on the northern
farms? I know people who rise at
cockcrow aud strain their sinews In
heavy toil the livelong day and spend
the Sabbath trembling in the lonely
shadow of the Valley of Death. I
kuow a mnn who whipped his boy till
he bled because he ran away to go
fishing. It's all slavery, pure and simple."
"In the sweat of thy face shalt thou
eat bread till thou return unto the
ground," said Ezra Tower.
"If Ood said it, be made slaves of us
all." said young Trove. "When I look
arouud here and see people wasted to
the bone with sweat and toll, too weary
often to eat the bread they have earned; when I see their children dying of
consumption from excess of labor and
pork fat, I forget the slaves of man
and think only of these wretched slaves
of God."
But Polly was not of them the teacher pitied. She was a bit discontented,
but surely she was cheerful and well
fed. God gave her beauty, and tbe
widow saw it and put her own strength
between the curse aud the child. Folly
had her task every day, but Polly had
ber way also ln too many things and
became a bit selfish, as might have
been expected. But there was something very sweet and fine about Polly.
They were plain clothes she wore, but
nobody save herself and mother gave
them any thougbt. Who, seeing her
big, laughing eyes, her finely modeled
face, with cheeks pink and dimpled,
ber shapely, white teeth, her mass of
dark hair, crowning a form tall and
straight as an arrow, could see anything but the merry hearted Polly?
"Miss Vaughn, you will please remain a few moments after school,"
is nit] the teacher one day nenr 4 o'clock.
Twice she had been caught whispering
tb&t day with the young girl wbo sat
behind her. Trove had looked down,
stroking bis little mustache thoughtfully, and made no remark. The girl
bad gone to work, then, ber cheeks red
with embarrassment.
"I wish you'd do me a favor, Miss
Polly," said the teacher when they
were alone. >j,V
She blushed deeply and jMMoklng
down as she fussed with hetf**fibdker-
chief. She was a bit frightened by tbe
serious air of tbat big young mail.
"It Isn't much," he went on.. ''I'd
like you to help me teach a little. Tomorrow morning I shall mnke » jrui.i
on the blackboard, and while I am
doing It I'd like you to conduct the
school. When you bave finished with
tbe primer class I'll be ready to take
bold again."
She bad a puzzled look.
"I thougbt you were going to punish
me," she answered, smiling.
"For what?" he Inquired.
"Whispering," said she.
"Oh, yesl But you have read Walter
Scott, and you know ladles are to be
honored, not punished. 1 shouldn't
know how to do such a thing. When
you've become a teacher you'll see I'm
right about whispering. May I walk
borne with you?"
Polly had then a very serious look.
She turned away, biting ber lip, in a
brief struggle for self mastery.
"If you care to," she whispered.
They walked away In silence.
"Do you dance?" she Inquired pree-
"No, save attendance on your pleas-
are," said he.   "Will you teach me?"
"Is there anything I can teach yon?"
Bbe looked up at him playfully.
"Wisdom," said be quickly, "and bow

came to tea. As to dancing—well, I

"If you'll stay this evening," said
she, "we'll have some more of my
blueberries and biscuit, and then, lf
you care to, we'll try dancing."
"You'll give me a lesson?" he asked
"If you'd care to have me."
"Agreed; but first let us bave the
blueberries and biscuit," said he heartily as they entered the door. "Hello,
Mrs. Vaughn. I came over to help you
eat supper. I have It all planned.
j Paul Is to set the table, I'm to peel the
potatoes and fry the pork, Polly Is to
| make the biscuit and gravy and put
I the kettle on. You are to sit by and
look pleasant."
"I insist on making the tea," said
Mrs. Vaughn, with amusement.
"Shall we let her make the tea?" he
asked, looking thoughtfully at Polly.
"Perhaps we'd better," said she,
"AH right. We'll let her make the
tea.   We don't have to drink It."
"You," said the widow, "nre like Governor Wright, who said to Mrs. Perkins, 'Madam, I will praise your tea,
but hang me if I'll drink It.'"
"I'm going to tench the primer clnss
m thp morning." said Polly as she
filled tbe teakettle.
"Look out, young man," said Mrs.
Vaughn, turning to the teacher. "In a
short time she'll be thinking she can
teach you."
"I get my first lesson tonight," said
the young man. "She's to teach me
"And you've no fear for your soul?"
"I've more fear for my body," vald
he. glancing down upon his long figure.
"I've never lifted my feet snve for the
purpose of transportation. I'd like to
l:<nrn to dance because Deacon Tower
thinks It wicked, nnd I've learned that
happiness and Bin mean the same thing
to his vocabulary."
"I fear you're n downward and backsliding youth," said the widow.
"You know what Ezra Tower said of
Ebenezer Fisher, thnt he was 'one o'
tbem mush beads that didn't believe In
tell?'    Are you one o'  that klndl"
Proclalmers of liberal thougbt were at
work there In the north.
"Since I met Deacon Tower I'm
sure 'it's useful and necessary. He's
got to have some place for his enemies. If It were not for heil the deacon would be miserable here and, maybe, happy hereafter."
"It's a great hope and comfort to
him," said the widow, smiling.
"Well, God save us all!" said Trove,
who bad now a liking for both the
phrase and philosophy of Darrel. They
had taken chairs at the table.
"Tom," said he, "we'll pause a moment, while yon give us the fourth rule
of syntax."
"Correct," said he heartily, as the
last word was spoken. "Now let us be

"Thou shalt not He," said the boy
"Correct," said Trove; "and In the
full knowledge of tbe law I declare
tbat no better blueberries and biscuit
ever passed my lips."

es. Soon Polly came back, glowing In
her best gown and slippers.
"Why, of all things! Wbat a foolish

Polly waltzed np and down the room,
singing gayly.
She stopped before the glass and be-

"May I have the honor, Miss
Vaughn?" said he, bowing politely. "Is
that the way to do?"
"You might Bay, 'Will you be my
pardner?'" said she, mimicking the
broad dialect of the region."
"I'll sacrifice my dignity, but not my
language," said be. "Let us dance and
be merry, for. tomorrow we teach."
"If you'll watch my feet you'll see
how I do lt," said she, and lifting her
skirt above her dainty ankles she glided
across the floor on tiptoe as lightly as
a fawn at play. But Sidney Trove was
not a graceful creature. The muscles
on his lithe form, developed ln the
school of work or In feats of strength,
at which he had met no equal, were untrained ln all graceful trickery. He
loved dancing and music and everything that Increased the beauty and j
delight of life, but they filled him with

The Rev. Canon Almon Abbott, ol
Christ's Church Cathedral, Hamilton,
is blessed with great gifts of oratory.
Recently he recited the following
verses, written by William Herbert
Carrush, a professor in a German
university, and the delivery and the
eubject so impressed the congregation
that the poem has been the theme '
of conversation among the people who
beard it. There is a beauty in the
verses that appeals to thoughtful men
knd women:
A  fire mist and a planet,
A  crystal  and a cell,
4 jellyfish and a saurian,
A cava where the cave men dwell-
then a sense ot law and beauty,
A face turned from the clod—
Borne call it evolution,
And others call it God.
& haze on the fair horizon—
The infinite teuder sky.
The rich ripe tint of the cornfields,
And the wild  geese sailing  high.
And all over upland and lowland,
The sign of the golden rod—
Borne of us  call it Autumn,
And others call it God.
Like tides on a crescent sea beach.
When the moon is new and thin.
Into our hearts high gloamings,
Come welling and surging in—
Come from the mystic ocean
Whose rim no foot has trod—
Borne of  us  call  it  longing.
And others call it God.
_ picket frozen on duty—
A mother starved for her brood—
Socrates drinking the hemlock.
And Jesus on the rood.
And millions, who humble and nam*,
The straight hard pathway trod.
Some call  it Consecration,
And others call it God.
A Pioneer "Muck Raker."
In a double sense the late Dr. W.
H. Russell, former war correspondent
of the London Times, was a pioneer.
He was the first to make a hit with
accounts of battles "written on the
epot," although with him, as it was
with his imitators, the legend was
1 fiction. No man can see a battle and
write about it at the same time. Rus-
Ff.U took in the points in the field and
then wrote Mb story in a carriage
while traveling to the mail or telegraph staticm. He made his mark in
the Crimean war, that struggle with
many surprises and horrors, too, and
blazed the way for the American correspondents in the civil war.
Russell exposed the blunder which
led to the tragedy at Balaklava by
which the Light Brigade was sacrificed
lo no purpose. His revelations with
respect to that memorable action led
to an official investigation, and the
newspaper man waa vindicated. After
Balaklava. Russell's reputation stood
so high at home that he exposed the
suffering of the soldiery in tbe tents
and hospitals at Sevastopol, due to
official mismanagement, and raised a
Storm of indignation throughout England. The main trouble with the army
was the cumbrous red tape and official
Blownesa to grasp the truth and handle the situation without risking a
crisis. Disease and hardship wrought
[earful havoc in tho British camps,
and but for Russell's caustic pen
Florence Nightungale and her corps of
nurses would not have entered upon
that great mission of relief which haa
since furnished example to the whole
civilized  world.
The time came when Russell had to
be sensational to hold hia audience;
and his mission to this country at
the beginning of the civil war was'a
failure. He was recalled by the LoD»
don Times, although he doubtless
wrote just the stuff the majority of
Englishmen at home liked to read at
that time.
A Stetson Storr.
The late John Stetson, famous ln bla
lay as a theatrical manager, was having 11 yacht built, and a friend, meeting

If I were asked wbat was the greatest foe to beauty tn both man and
women, 1 would say not errors ln diet
not lack of exercise, not overwork, not
corsets, not any one of these, bnt bad
mental habits. If we observe closely the
faces of the people we meet at random
on the street, at the theater or in tbe
great shops, we will observe that nearly all of them are character'—ed by tbe
lined mo -th, the drawn brows and other facial disfigurements which accompany bad mental states.
What do I mean by bad mental
states? I mean anger, fear, worry,
anxiety, Irritability, regret envy, Jealousy, lack of trust ln oneself and ln
the great good. All these are bad mental states, and al) these destroy beauty not only by Interfering with the
action of the vital organs, but by directly disfiguring the expression of tbe
Unless the beauty seeking young woman Is prepared to deliberately cultivate good nature, kindliness, calmness, cheerfulness even to hilarity, unless she ls prepared to deliberately
conquer all tendencies to the bad mental states above mentioned, there will
be little or no results from ber efforts

gift of beauty. — From "Health the

The Bag on ttie Doorknob,
A late home corner, walking through
the uptown residential section after
midnight, says the PhUadelpbia Record, would be surprised to see what appears to be white crape hanging from
hundreds of doors and bell knobs. The
white thing ls not an Indication of a
child's death, however, but merely a
bread bag that tbe baker supplies to
bis enstomers. For years householders
had to put up witb uncertainty about
their bread, not knowing whether some
of tba numerous cats that make tiie
night less silent had Investigated and
pawed over their morning loaf. But
now the bakers, In order that their customers might feel more secure, bave
provided these white bags, which the
housekeeper hangs on the doorknob at
night and the baker fills early ln tbe

More than eight years have elapsed
since China granted to France a concession to build a railway from the
Tonqnin frontier to Yunnanfu, tbe capital of the southwestern province, a
distance of about 280 miles. Labor and
climatic difficulties as well as a change
In 1904 of tbe original trace of the
line have bad much to do with tbe delay, but work ls now proceeding all
along tbe new route, and It ls expected
tbat tbe railway will be open as far as
Mengtsu ln 1907 and be completed to

Ca_.onIrln>r  an Old Practioe.
R. T. Will, writing to Western Poultry Journal, says: I notice numerous
articles In the poultry journals these
days explaining what "capons" are and
the methods of procedure In the operation of canonizing. That caponlzlng
Is not a recent discovery Is deduced
from the fact that Shakespeare causes
Hamlet to mention capons In a conversation with the king, scene 2, net
8, so that "capons" were known In tb*
slxteeen century and perhaps earlier.

The  Valley   o( Qolllola.
"Whoever," says Charles Darwin ia
bis "Voyage of the Beagle," "called
Valparaiso the valley of paradlso
must have been thinking of QuIUota."
Qulllota ls a thriving town twenty-six
miles from Valparaiso ln a northeasterly direction. Any person, he declares, who sees only the country
around Valparaiso, barren of vegetation, would never Imagine that there
were such picturesque spots ln Chile.
"As soon as we reached the brow of
the sierra tba valley of Qulllota was
Immediately unaer our feet. The prospect was one of remarkable natural
luxuriance. The valley ls very broad
and quite flat and ls thus easily Irrigated In all pnrts. The little square
gardens are crowded with orange anil
olive treea and every sort of vegetable."
Do Not Dose with Purgatives and1
Weakening Medicines—What People Need at This Season Is a Tonic
Not exactly sick—but not feeling
quite well. That's the spring feeling.
You are easily tired, appetite variable, sometimes headaches and a.
feeling of depression. Or perhaps-
pimples and eruptions appear on the-
face, or you have twinges of rheumatism or neuralgia. Any of these indicate that the blood is out of order,
that the indoor life of winter has left
its mark upon you and may easily
develop into more serious trouble.
Don't dose yourself with purgative
medicineB in the hope that you cani
put your blood right. Purgatives
gallop through the system, andi

Are the Colonies Underrated.
One hears this remark often reiterated of late, it appears to be just
dawnimj upon the rank and file of
people in this country that the policy
of England regarding settlement of
respective claims between Canada and
the United States has brought into being a feeling among young Canadians,
which may prove a source of trouble
in the future. How far this iB justified it is difficult to estimate, but
the present expansion of Canadian
affairs in every direction appears to
be accompanied with a sort of awakening among English people as to
possibilities of the change in the centre of gravity within the British Empire. This may sound bombastic and
absurd, but British North America is
daily approaching closer to the mother
island, as the facilities for transport
and communication increase, and a
diminuation in the cable rates wonld
greatly accelerate the approach of the
two countries.—The Toronto News.

If the "killer" whale Is "the tiger of

bas It the orcas surely are the vultures
of the ocean. In connection with whale
catching the author of this Interesting
natural history article tells of the following Incident: Some years ago a
whakr In the northwest had killed a
large whale and had the animal alongside when lt was attacked by a school
of orcas. They doubtless were half |
Btarved and, crazed by the scent of
blood that extended away a long dls*
tance, probably followed It up liktr
hounds, Immediately attacking the
whale. The men, with spades and
lances, cut and slashed at them, Inflicting terrible blows, yet despite this
the orcas literally tore the whale from
the ropes and carried It off. This certainly shows that the orcas, together
with a very fair share of intelligence,
are also creatures of extraordinary
courage.—Dundee Advertiser.

Fear is the thought of admitted
inferiority. When wo feel unequal to a
condition, we are afraid. The opposite
of fear is confidence—self-reliance.
Fear is not a physical thing but it oan
cause a very serious physioal derangement. To believe in your own divinity
is to abolish fear.

On Monday at 1:30 p. m. the
corner-stone of the new Robson
Memorial Church at Epworth was
ceremoniously laid, the President of
the Conference, Rev. Dr. S. J.
Thompson performing the rites of
the ceremony. The attendance of
local residents and friends from the
city was very large and the central
figure of the gathering was the
pioneer minister, Rev. Dr. Robson,
in whose honor the church is dedicated. The new church is situated
at the corner of the Flett and Flein-
ming roads, one block south of
Clark's Park, and one block west
of Cedar Cottage station, and occupies the eminence of the high
ground at this point, overlooking
the surrounding country. The
grounds of the church contain one
half acre. The cost of the building
will be about $3,000 when finished.
Rev. Dr. Thompson in laying the
corner-stones said this occasion
especially appealed to him because
of its connection with one whom he
was proud to call his friend, Rev.
Dr. Ebcnezer Robson. Every
Methodist minister had found in
him a true brother, and it afforded
him sincere pleasure when he heard
that a church was being erected to
his .memory that would, in some
measure, recognize his great work,
not only in the circuit, but throughout British Columbia. After referring to Dr. Robson's long connection wth the church in British
Columbia, covering a period of forty-nine years, the speaker expressed
the hope that he would be spared
many years to help uphold the
cause of Methodism, to lead men to
live godly lives, and prayed that
this building might be a meeting
place where many souls would be
won for Christ. Christian people
werq fast breaking down the barriers that separated them, and were
uniting more and more in• common;
worship. Might' the Robson Memorial Church be the birthplace of
many souls for Christ's Kingdom
and lives moulded lo the glory of
God. ..
Mr. F. L. Vosper sketched the
history of the church.« For four
years, from 1898 to 1903, there was
no service held nearer than Collingwood, and it was partly through
Mr.   ,oit*r%  .tffor'ti    that    Df.
Thompson's aid was obtained to
have services held in the school
room at Cedar Cottage, Dr. Robson being the man upon whom the
work devolved.
Those who have been mainly instrumental in founding a new
Methodist church in this part of
South Vancouver and also were
nresent, are: Board of Trustees—
Messrs. W. J. Andrews (chairman) ; F. L. Vosper (secretary);
A. E. Fawcett (treasurer); T- P.
Reid, J. Brown and R. Frost.
These gentlemen were ably seconded by the Ladies' Aid of the
church, Mrs. Tait (president);
Mrs. Andrews (vice-president);
Mrs. McFee (secretary); Mrs.
McLeod (treasurer) : Miss Sheriff,
Miss Vosper, Mrs. Hamilton, Mrs.
Buchart and Mrs. Brown.
At the close of the ceremony of
laying the corner-stone, Rev. Mr.
Hetherington said he had a pleasant duty to perform on behalf of
the "boys," namely, to present Rev.
Dr. Robson with a gold-headed
cane, made out of redwood taken
from the Pandora Street Methodist
Church, of Victoria, just demoish-
Dr. Robson made a witty reply,
thanking them for their gift, saying, although the California redwood of the church and himself
were both old, yet he had more life
in him than the cane.
The occasion was further rendered memorable by the presence of
the president of the Conference:
Rev. W. E. Pescott, Rev. Dr.
White, Superintendent of Missions
for British Columbia, Revs. Tait,
J. Hicks, A. M. Sanford, C. Lad-
ner, Dr. Robson and A. E. Hetherington.

~At tho Advice ot Friends I Tried
Pe-ru-na and the Results Have
Been      Highly      Satisfactory."—So
'Writes Mr. Pilon,
Notre Dame, Laohine, P.Q., Can.,
writes: "I write you a few words to
express to you my satisfaction at being cured. I was afflicted with catarrh of the throat and nose and suffered much. I was greatly discoursed. I had a bad breath and bad
taste in my mouth in the morning.
"I took treatment for some time
without .obtaining relief. At the ad-
»ice of friends I tried Peruna and
• the results have been highly sau's-
factory. At the end of four months I
was  completely  cured."
Neglected catarrh becomes chronic.
'Having developed into the chronic
stage, a longer and more persistent
treatment will be required to cure *t
than if the disease were treated at
the onset. '
However, Peruna wi.l bring relief,
-Whether the catarrh is acute or chro-
uic. If you are wise you will keep
Peruna on hand and take a few
■_oses at the first appearance of a
eold or cough, and thus save your-
-eelf  both suffering  and  expense.
;Patients have the privilege of writing to Dr. Hartman for free advice.

As  the  evenin?  shadows  gather.
Then  'tis euddletime,  I  know.
When   my   baby,  dressed  for  Dreamland,
Comes a-romping to me so;
Comes and begs of me to hold him
On my  kness and  "rook-a-bye,"
As the purpling sun sinks lower
In the gleaming western sky.
And he cuddles to me nearer.
As the  firelight softly glows.
And across the dusky portals
Ghostly, flickering shadows throws.
And two dimpled arms about me
Are clasped tighter for a kiss—
Ah, was ever richer necklace
Placed about one's neck than this?
Boon the drooping, drooping lashes
Cover up two eyes of brown.
And the tousled head so golden
On my breast sinks lower down.
Ah. the sweetness of the pleasure.
Making life one golden rhyme,
vVith a dimpled babe to fondle
When it comes to cuddletime!
A Prediction Fulfilled.
Professor Clements in London is
not the only "prophet" who has attained remarkable results. A century
igo "Francis Moore, physician,"
made the following impressive prophecy in his "local almanack" for
".pril 27, 1807: "Near this time the
Turkish emperor dies, or, it may be,
hides liis head. His people are tumultuous. If he can save his life let
_m. I give him fair warning of it."
And in May the Sultan Selim was deposed by a mutiny of the janizaries,
who put him to death about a year
later when the opposition party was
about to restore him. At the beginning of 1807 Russia, backed by England, wns threatening the Turk, and
Constantinople was known to have in-
lernal troubles. But even so, "Dr."
Moore's shot was deemed a good one.
"Yes; I suppose I'm one of the most
prominent men In college," remarked
vthe c.illoiv sophomore.
"Indeed! What capacity?" asked
'the friond oC the family.
"Eighteen beers, eleven cocktails,

.young man, proudly.—Puck.

-.mn out or water.
It ls well known, says Knowledge,
that certain kinds of fishes are able t*
live out of water much longer than
others, the power being dependent
upon the length of time that their gills
are capable of remaining damp. So
long as this condition lasts fish are able
to obtain the necessary amount of oxygen from the air through the medium
of the water spread over the fine membrane of the gills. Recently a German
has Invented an apparatus by means
of which the gills can be kept moist for
an Indefinite period. This apparatus
consists of a wooden box with a number of compartments corresponding
with the size of the fishes. On the floor
of each compartment Is a layer half an
Inch deep of cloths saturated with water which by evaporation keeps the atmosphere moist. The gills of the fishes
nre thus kept damp, while oxygen Is
supplied from a receptacle outside tlie
box. Many kinds of fresh water fish

Reproduced above, is a portrait of the late
Mr. C. B. Record, the founder and origin*!
head of the Record Foundry & Machine
Co., of Moncton, N.B., and Montreal,
Previous to Mr. Record going Into the
manufacture of stoves, those used in
Canada were almost wholly of American
manufacture. The character of tho work
turned out by the Record Foundry &
Machine Co., at once gave their stoves a
standing, and as a result a very large
business soon grew up, largely owing to
Mr. Record's untiring industry and perseverance against many obstacles.
Although Mr. Record retired from active
business as far back as 1879, the solid
basis on which he had established the industry, has resulted in its growth from a
sturdy pioneer into one of the largest stove
manufacturing plants on the northern half
of the American continent. With two
large plants, one in Moncton and one in
Montreal, the Record Foundry tt Machine
Co. are known from Halifax to Vancouver,
and their "Calorific" and "Admiral"

Physiologists are finding by numerous experiments that, while alcohol
has a certain food value, this ls more
than counterbalanced by Its effect as a

there Is not an organ In the human
body that escapes this subtle poison,
or a function that Is not Impaired by
Its use. The octogenarian who boasts

Captain Wm.  Smith,  a veteran of
the Crimean   war,  living   at   Revelstoke, B.C.. writes:   "I can testify to
the benefit derived from Dr; Chase's
Kidney-Liver Pills.    For years I was
a sufferer from  kidney  disease, and
could get no relief for it.    The doctor examined  me  and  analyzed  my
urine and told me I had chronic disease of the kidneys.   As his medicine
did me no good, I bought a box of
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver   Pills   and
was benefited so much that   I   kept
on taking them until I can say that
I  am perfectly  cured.    I    told    the
doctor I was cured, out he would not
believe me until    he    examined my
nine again.   After doing so he stated
iiat I  hud no trace  of kidney dis-
i8e left.    I have recommended Dr.
iiase's  medicines to  many people."
The urea, uric acid and other poi-
mous  waste substances   which   are
-'ft in the blood after the process of
digestion has taken place are eliminated from the system by the action
of the kidneys.
Failure of the kidneys to perform
this important work of filtration
means a poisoning of the whole system and consequently the most painful of diseases, such as Bright's disease, lumbago, backache and rheumatism.
The causes of such ailments are
promptly removed by the use of Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills. This
great family medicine has a combined action on the Mver, kidneys
and bowels which is not possessed by
any similar preparation. The whole
system is quickly and thoroughly
cleansed and the vital organs invigorated by this treatment. One pill a

a Lis but a few people prophesied
*Jk that the exaggerated lilt (which
1 A was sc startling an innovatior
a year agoj would be out ot
fashion ln a little while, and that the
little hats would go with It.
The few who dared oppose that theory
have proved triumphant; little hats have
lasted ail winter, and some of the most
stunning of those for spring are tinier
than ever, with the tilt more pronounced, and the bandeau, which makes
lt possible, elevated Into a position of
great importance.
It is not only upon the small hats,
however, that kandeaus are important.
Those new big hats—regular picture
types—which" are next In favor to little
hats, have just as great a need of lt,
either for the back or for the newest
of all tilts that at the left side, which
la so fascinating and, unlike the lirst
for -i of the tilt from the back, universally becoming.
French sailors have made quite a stir
ln the millinery world this spring and
what the calyx of a rose Is to the flower
Itself the bandeau ls to that sailor.
Narrow-brimmed, rather high crowned,
very much tilted affairs they are, most
of the trimming heaped directly upon
the bandeau at the beck.
The treatment most often followed ra
that of ribbon, twisted and turned,
knotted and looped ln a thousand ways,
from the simplest of all, a broad, effective bow, Irresistibly reminiscent of
a sash, with loops smartly pulled out
te the sides a.— ends dangling, to curious treatments of velvet ribbon, laid ln
long loops, perhaps with a band of
the ribbon drawn across, knotting, ln a
way, all the bows at once.
The UBe of velvet ribbon, however, Is
very much the exception—the rule being
the softest, most chlffony of silk ribbons, loulsine and messallne leading at
a great pace.
Among French sailors has come out
the quaintest, most utterly Kngiish little hat Imaginable, of simple black
straw, trimmed with a few small roses
around the cr.wn, with a bandeau, upon
which roses are massed so that they
seem to droop against the hair of their
own accord.
Upon some very elaborate hats almost
all the trimming is massed directly at
the back, under the brim, upon that bandeau. Perhaps four or rive plumes—those
new willowy plumes or the more usual
kind—stand out, each at a different
angle, yet merging, somehow, into a general effect of soft, feathery fluff. As
probably, an aigrette flings its delicate
airy beauty out from the back at any
one of several popular angles—following
the line of that all-Important tilt, drooping (as only a Paradise plume can
droop), or, perhaps, striking daringly
out upon new—though beautiful—lines.
Perhaps moss roses, which sprang Into
popularity at a single bound, with bits
of green foliage tucked Into the closely
bunched cluster, are used; or perhaps
maline Is looped on; or, as In the case of
a stunning mourning hat, net of a heavy
•meRh Is pleated and spread out like a
But ln each and every one of them
the bandeau ls Important.
Bandeaus  come   wired   and   ready   to

that flrst wrapping of maline, which
converts them into less formidable-looking affairs, already put on. Many of
them are of straw, but wire shapes
covered with net or maline, even stiff
canvas kinds, and those made of delicate horsehair, braids, or Btrong things
covered with silk, are all used, depending entirely upon the sort of trimming
which will be put on them.
■The most popular Bhape ls the one
shown, which, if you cut it yourself
must be edged with silk-wrapped wire
caught to the straw by long, over-cr-'-
ing stltchea Then wrap It wltfc maline.
and secure tho wrapping with a few
stitches. Then sew lt to the hat, and
you are ready to begin trimming It.
Whatever trimming the rest of the hat
Is lo have may be put on before the
bandeau is applied, rather more successfully, too.
If you Intend to trim with maline,
crush It to get that first stiffness out
of It; then loop lt In countless soft little loops all over the bnndeau. Pleating

blackheads? I have tried some of your
advice for blackheads, but they don't seem
to help. C. H.
The only permanent bleach that I
know of Is peroxide nt hydrogen.
However, If the arms are red, this
will not help. In the latter case the
trouble may be due to poor digestion
or imperfect circulation, I am afraid
this is the cause of the blackheads.
Try a careful diet of wholesome, simple food, with plenty of fresh air and
exercise. A good whltener, which ls
quite seasonable, ts fresh cucumbers.
Rub the vegetable ovr the skin
every day. Buttermilk baths make
another simple and harmless whltener.
Excessive Perspiration
I am troubled with excessive perspiration under my arms, lt Is growing wumo

Frequently excessive perspiration ia
due to a disordered condition of the
nervous system, In which case specific
treatment Is necessary. Foe the perspiration under your arms try washing
niirht and mornlnc with hot water, In
which there should be a few drops of
ammonia, using common brown kitchen
soap. I have known of cases where this
treatment proved most successful.
Fumice Treatment.
Get an ordinary 5-cent cake of pumice
stone.    This Is not  pumice soap,  but  thu
regular old-fashioned pumice stone.      To
'  remove   the   hair   rub   the   akin   afflicted
with   the   superfluous    growth,   and   the
pumlce'stone will wear the hair off.     Be
careful  not to be too heroic and  irritate
the skin.   In case the arms are made red
by this treatment, use a little cold cream.
In   removing   superfluous   hairs   lt   Is
best always to try the simple remedies
Treat for Blackheads First
I have been a reader of your Beauty
Tage for the last three or four months,
and although I have seen articles that
seemed to suit my case, I thought I would
like to ask you one or two questions before  beginning  treatment.
My skin was once quite good, but within
the last year or bo I have been troubled
with blackheadB and large pores. I have
Been prescriptions for botn, but Bhould one
get entirely rid of the former before treating for the latter? I have always fought
shy of face creams, etc.. fearing that they
would serve to nil up tho pores and produce more blacklisads. If I use lotion for
enlarge-, pores first, will it close them
wer  the   Nackheads?
In one article on blackheads you save
,rveral prescriptions—one of green soap and
witch ha—-1. one of borscic acid, alcohol
and roMwaur, and on. of ether ana soap
liniment. It Is best to stick to just one
and If to. which do you think Is btttT

will the hair grow In thicker, as It does

I should say yeB, treat for the blackheads before you consider the enlarged pores, for almost always the blackhead formula Is astringent. Should
you need to use something for them
finally, be sure that the blackheads
are perfectly cured flrst.
Face creams, if pure lap those prepared from your own formula), are
quite harmless, with no tendency to
fill the pores if the skin is kept thor.
oughly clean.
The simplest prescription of the
three you mention Is that of horacic
acid, alcohol-and roscwater. Most certainly, use hut one at a time; and I
should begin with this one.
Yes. the cure for confluent ucne Is
a help In case of blackheads. The use
of pumice stone will in no way promote the growth or hair.

EARACHE, one of the painful llleri
to which flesh Is heir, ls also one
of the most dangerous to neglect
and difficult to cure.
It may come from a variety of causes
—cold being the chief. But whatever
the cause, professional advice should always be sought as soon as possible. The
ear ls something with which it never
pays "to fool.'' Quack remedies and
lotions may be tried on other and less
sensitive parts of the body, without the
long suffering organs rebelling unduly,
but the ear is very apt to be harmed
irreparably by  untrained doctoring.
Of course, in the case of a child's
sudden agony, which must be relieved
before the doctor comes, one may resort
to some simple cure.
The old-fashioned method of smoking
Into the painful ear often proves efficacious. Cotton should be Inserted as soon
as the smoking Is finished.
A drop or two of warm oil also proves
soothing, or laying the little head on
a piping hot bag of dried hops or on a
hot-water bottle.
Putting a narrow strip of porous plaster or some of the medicated pastes or
clays close behind the ear olien relieves
Intense pain.
The main thing ls to get at the seat
of the trouble, and that only a skilled
aurlst can do. The deprivations of a
life without hearing are too serious to
make its possibility a thing to be lightly
Never dig at the ear with any instrument, no matter how blunt. A.so Lie
careful how a syringe is used on lt without full knowledge of its effect.
The getting of too much water into
the ear sometimes has serious results.
Tals should be carefully guarded
against, ln ocean bathing especially.
Even the ordinary daily washings may
be overdone. One young woman who
was troubled with a constant roaring
and feared permanent deafness consulted her aurist. To her intense disgust,
after removing an accumulation of wax,
he told her that Bhe was too clean; that
she washed her ears too far in and the
water had caused this formation. Being a somewhat unconvinceable young
?erson she persists in her vigorous ab.u-
lons, with frequent visits to her aurist
Certain cars by a peculiarity of formation are specially susceptible to the effect of water. When this ls recognized
great pains should be taken to guard
against It.
It ls not enough to cure earache; we
must learn, if possible, to prevent it.
Often It ls caused by neglected colds in
the throat or nose So sensitive is the
eustachian tube that the slightest inflammation in either ls found to affect
the ear.
A very prolific, but often unsuspected,
source of earache ls the habit of some
women of washing the hair laie at
night and going to bed with lt damp.
This ls apt to cause trouble at once, lf
one's ears are at all sensitive.
It also often follows sitting in a
strong draught, and allowing the cold
air V Mow squarely on the ear.   lf one
