S'mantha suspicious. For many years
fun had been a thing far from their
"Play checkers?" he inquired.
"Afraid we couldn't," aaid Miss Letltla, answering for both.
"Old Sledge?"
She shook ber head, smiling.
"I don't wish to lead you Into recklessness," tbe teacher remarked, "but
I'm sure you wouldn't mind being
Miss S'mantha bad a startled look.
"In—In a—proper way," he added.
"Let's be joyful. Perhaps we could
play 'I spy.'"
"Y!" they both exclaimed, laughing
"Never ate chicken pie like tbat," he
added Ih all sincerity. "If I were a
poet I'd Indite an ode 'written after
eating some of tbe excellent chicken
pie of the Misses Tower.' I'm going to
have some like It on my farm."
In reaching to help himself he touched the teapot, withdrawing his band
"Burn ye?" said Miss S'mantha.
"Yes, but I like it," said he, a bit embarrassed.   "I often go and—put my
band on a hot teapot If I'm having too
much fun."
They looked up at blm, puzzled.
"Ever slide dowu bill?" be Inquired,
looking from one to tbe other after a
bit of silence.
"Oh, not since we were little," said
Miss Letltla, holding her biscuit daintily after taking a bite none too big for
a bird to manage.
"Good fun," said he. "Whisk you
back to childhood In a Jiffy. Folks
ought to slide down bill rnore'n they
do. It Isn't a good idea to be always
" 'Frald we couldn't Stan' lt," said
Miss S'mantha tentatively. Under all
ber man fear and suspicion lay a furtive recklessness.
"Y, no!" tbe other whispered, laughing silently.
The pervading alienee of that house
came flooding ln between sentences.
For a moment Trove could bear only
the gurgle of pouring tea and the faint
rattle of china softly handled. When
he felt as lf the silence were drowning blm he began again:
"Life ls nothing but a school. I'm a
teacher, and I deal in rules. If you
want to kill misery load your gun
wltb pleasure."
"Do you know of anytblng for Indigestion?" said MIsg S'mantha, charging her sickly voice witb a firmness
calculated to discourage any undue
"Just tbe thing—a sure cure!" said
he emphatically.
"Come high?" she inquired.
"No; It'a cheap and plenty."
"Where do you send?"
"Ob," said be, "you will have to go
after it!"
"What Is lt called?"
"Fun," said the teacher quickly, "and
the place to find lt Is out of doors.   It
grows everywhere on my farm.   I'd
rather bave a pnlr of skates tban all
tbe medicine thia side of China."
Bbe set down ber teacup and looked
up at him. Sbe waa beginning to tblnk
him a fairly safe and well behaved
man, although she would bave been
more comfortable If he bad been shut
In a cage.
"If I had a pair o' skates," said she
faintly, with a look of Inquiry at her
slater, "I dunno but I'd try 'em."
Mlaa Letltla began to laugh silently.
"I'd begin with overshoes," aaid the
teacher. "A pair of overshoes and a
walk on tbe crust every morning before breakfast; Increase the dose gradually,"
The two old maids' were now more
at ease with their guest Hia, kindly
manner and plentiful good spirits had
begun to warm and dicer tbem... Miss.
S'mantha even .cherished a secret se-..
i solve to slide lf the chance came.
After tea Sidney Trove, agHlhst tbelr'
protest, began to help with the dishes.
Miss S'mantha prudently managed to
keep the stove between him and ber.
A fire and candles were burning in the
parlor. He asked permission, however,
to stay where he could talk with tbem.
Tunk Hosely, the man of all work,
came In for bis supper. He was an odd
character. Some, with a finger on their
foreheads, confided tbe opinion that ha
was "a little off." All agreed he was
no fool, ln a tone that left it open to
argument He had a small figure and
* big squint. Hia perpetual squint and
bristly, short beard were a great Injustice to him. Tbey gave blm a look se-

verer than be deserved. A limp and
leaning shoulder complete the inventory of external traits. Having eaten,
he set a candle in the old barn lantern.
"Waal, mister," said he wben all was
ready, "come out an' look at my hoss."
The teacher went with blm out under
a sky bright wltb stars to tbe chill aud
gloomy stable.
"Look at me," aaid Tunk, holding up
the lantern as he turned about "Gosh
all fishhooks, I'm a wreck!"
"What's the matter?" Sidney Trova
"All sunk ln—right here," Tunk answered impressively, bla hand to his
"How did It happen?"
"Kicked by a hoss; that's how It happened," waB tbe significant answer.
"Lord! I'm all shucked over to on*
aide. Can't ye see It?"
"A list to sta'b'rd; that's what they
call It, I believe," aaid the teacher.
"See how I limp," Tunk went on,
striding to show his pace. "Ain't lt
"How did that happen?"
"Sprung my ex," he answered, turning quickly, with a significant look;
"thrown from a sulky In a boss race
an' sprung my ex. Lord! Can't ye see
The teacher nodded, not knowing
quite how to take him.
"Had my knee unsot, too," he went
on, lifting his knee as be turned the
light upon lt. "Jes' put yer finger

Sidney Trove began to help with the
protuberance.   "Lord, it'a big as a bog

Ha had planned to provoke a query,
and lt came.
i  "How did you get lt?"
"Kicked ag'In," said Tunk sadly.
'■Heavens, I've had my ahare o' bang-
in'! Can't conquer a skittish hoes
without sufferln' some—not allwus.
Now, here's a hoss," be added as they
walked to a stall. "Ha ain't much f
look at, but"—
He paused a moment as be neared
the horse— a white and ancient palfrey.
He stood thoughtfully on "cocked anklet," every leg In a bandage, tall and
inane braided.
"Get ap, Prince," Tunk shouted aa
ba gave blm a slap. Prince moved
aside, betraying evidence of age and
"But"— Tunk repeated, wltb emphasis.
"Ugly?" the teacher queried.
"Ugly!" said Tunk, as lf the word
were all too feeble for the fact in hand.
"That's what be ls! Look out! Don't
get too nlgb blm! He ain't no conscience, tbat boa*' ain't"
"Ia he fast?"

It haa been said-that children are all
given to lying ln aome degree, but seeing the folly of lt In good time, if, indeed, tbey are not convinced of its
wickednets, train tongue and feeling
into the way of truth. Tbe respect for
truth tbat la the beginning of wisdom
had not come to Tunk. He continued
to He with the cheerful Inconsistency
of a child. The hero of bla youth had
been a certain driver of trotting horses
wbo bad a limp and a leaning shoulder.
In Tunk the limp and the leaning
shoulder were an attainment that had
come of no sudden wrench. Such ls ths
power of example, he admired, tben
imitated and at last acquired them.
One cannot help thinking what graces
of character and person a like persistency would bave brought to him.
But Tunk had equipped himself with
horsy heroism, adorning It to bis own
fancy. He had never been kicked, b«
bad never driven a race or been
hurled from a sulky at full speed.
Prince, that ancient palfrey, was the
most harmless of all creatures and
would long since bave been put out of
misery but for the tender consideration of bis owners. And Tunk—well,
they used to say of bim that if be had
been truthful he couldn't have been alive,
"Some time," Trove thougbt, "bis folly may bring confusion upon wist
heads." /

4ii __ort te Do Away Wltb tbe Long
_—Ida- Interval.
A discussion ls going on ln commercial circles ln Germany regarding the
respective merits of the English and
German systems of arranging the
hours of work ln banks, company offices and big business bouses.
It has always been customary In
Germany for clerks and accountants
•nd all workers of this class to begin
work considerably earlier tban Is the
case.ln England and to terminate work
tn the evening much later tban Is usual
In London. Work begins in German
offices, as a rule, at 8 o'clock In tha
morning and Is frequently not concluded before 8 o'clock In the evening.
Partial compensation for tbe early beginning and late termination Is obtained by taking a two hours' pause at
midday, but even wltb this break the
total hours worked In German offices
considerably exceed those In English
offices, especially as a balf holiday Saturday Is still an exceptional arrangement In Germany.
An agitation Is now going on for th*
abolition of tbe long midday Interval
nnd of the Introduction of the hours of
work usual In English offices. Many
German business men, however, resist
the Innovation and persist In maintaining tbe old fashioned system.
Many German stockbrokers, company directors, directors of banks and
captains of Industry adopt a curious
arrangement by which they dine at 8
o'clock In the afternoon and afterward
return to tbelr offices from 6 till 8
o'clock In tbe evening.
Tbe Fnllh-il Little Golde.
Ofttlmes I have seen a tall ship gilds
by against the tide as 'If drawn by
■ome Invisible towllne wltb a.hundred
atrong arms polling It Her sails hung
unfilled; her streamers were drooping;
■he had neither aide wheel nor stern
wheel. Still ahe moved on stately ln
serene triumph, as If with her own
life. But I knew tbat on the other side
Of the ship, hidden beneath the great
hulk that awam so majestically, there
was a llttle tolling steam tug with a
heart of flre and arms of Iron that was
hugging It close and dragging lt bravely on, and I knew that lf tbe little
•team tug untwined her arms and left
the tall ship It would wallow and roll
•bout and drift hither and thither and
go off with refluent tide, no man knows
whither. And so I bave known more
than one genius, high decked, full
freighted, wide sailed, gay pennoned,
that but for the bare tolling arms and
brave, warm-beating heart of the faithful little wife that nestled close to him
•o thnt no wind or wave could part
them would soon have gone down
stream and been heard of no more.—
Oliver Wendell Holmes.
A Fatal Sleep.
Hugh Miller, the Scottish geologist
•nd writer, was one of the most Illustrious of sleepwalkers. Miller, who
had been addicted to somnambulism In
his youth, found his restlessness return
while he waa engaged upon his "Testimony of the Rocks." He used to
wake in the morning feeling, as be
said, aa lf he bad been abroad In tbe
night wind, dragged by some Invisible
power and ridden by witches. On the
nlgbt of his death be slept alone. In
the morning they found-him stretched
dead on the floor witb a bullet through
his breast He bad written a note to
his wife: "My brain burns. I must
have walked, and a fearful dream rises
upon me. I cannot bear the horrible
thought My brain burns as the recollection grows." Bo Intense had been
the poor fellow's anguish tbat to make
certain his end he had torn back shirt
•nd vest and placed the muzzle of tbe
pistol to bis naked flesh.—St James'
The  Fractured  Le*.
A visitor was going through the children's surgical ward of one of tbe city
hospitals when he spied a llttle fellow
with his legs In the air and his weight
resting on his head and shoulders. Going closer, he saw that the boy's feet
were fastened with ropes which passed
through a pulley above. At tbe other
ends of tbe ropes were weights, just
heavy enough to hold the boy's legs In
the air without lifting him entirely off
the bed.
"What's all that nbout?" asked the
visitor.   "Doesn't it hurt him?"
"Not at all," answered the physician
who waa accompanying. "He doesn't
look unhappy, does be? That's the
way we always handle fractures of
the leg witb a child. Otherwise the
youngsters squirm around so tbat they
I work the splints loose.    Only one of
Those Germans who bave practical i this boy's legs ls injured, but they are
experience of offlce work In England , both swung ln the air for his greater
are unanimous In declaring that English clerks do Just as much In six or
seven hours as German clerks In nine
or ten hours and advance this as •
strong argument In favor of the general adoption of the English hours of
work In offices.
A few of the big banks In Berlin
have already got as far as a working
day of eight hours, from 9 o'clock in
the morning till 6 o'clock In tbe afternoon, with two hours less Saturday,
when tbey close at 8 o'clock.—Berlin'
Letter ln London Standard.
Electricity In the Borne.
In a $3,000 or $4,000 house It Is *
very common matter to wire for electric lights, but by giving tbe subject •
little further attention with your electrical contractor and the architect lt
Is possible to arrange outlets for lighting socket heating devices at very littlo extra expense. Sucb receptacles
would be taken off from tbe lighting
wires In • very simple manner. The
cost of operating later ot lighting rates
would not be large, for the reason
that the electrical devices which will
be used  on such  a  circuit consume
Sorrows of a HumlorUt.
"This thing of being a humorist Is
•bout the saddest thing I know," sighed Simeon Ford. "An ordinary person
fan have bis moods and humors as he
pleases, but I must always be on the
job. I am constantly being Invited out
not because I'm liked for myself alone
or because of my manly beauty, but
because I am expected to entertain the
assemblage. Tbe rest of the company
may be as dull as dishwater, but If I
do not shake up the gathering with a
few Jokes the hostess glares at me and
really feels resentful. I may be sunk
ln the slough of despond, but just as
soon aa I take my seat all lean forward
•ni eye me expectantly. My son, never get a reputation for being funny. It
is the most mournful thing on earth."
Teeth of Chambermaid!.
Have you ever noticed that every
chambermaid who has been taking
care of tbe hay and feathers foi a
number of years Is usually devoid of a
few teeth of the upper "case?" Vet-

others.—Cassler'e Magazine.
A Bale of Cotton.
In order to see bow far a certain bale
of cotton was shipped before being
manufactured into goods W. H. Parks,
Jr., of Funis, Tex., placed a note In a
bale which was shipped In the autumn
of 1005 asking the person who finally
received and opened it to write to him
•nd tell him where the cotton was used
and what price was paid. Tbe bale
traveled many thousands of miles, as
Is shown by tbls letter, which Mr.
Parks received recently from Reva),
Russia, which ls situated on the Baltlo
Itoval, Russia, Aug:, ti (Sept. E),
The bale of cotton ln which your letter
and blank memorandum were found was
reotf-Vrd at the Baltlo mill, Reval, Russia, via Bremen, bought from Oebruder
Frltae of that city at 6.X-L a pound.
The absence
of tbe ivories la explained as follows
by a. downtown dentist: "The teeth of
the maids which I replace with artificial ones are pillowcase teeth. They
are constantly used ln putting on pillowcases and are not strong enough to
stand tbe strain: Their work Is a constant wear and tear on the Ceth."
A Tree Freak.
A rare proof of the vitality of .certain trees la offered by a poplar ln the
village of Gunten, on the Lake of
Thun. When, about twenty years ago,
a fountain was placed before tbe post-
office building of tbat place the builders used for a shank and girder of the
water conduit a young poplar trunk
which tbey drove Into tbe ground and
In which the pipe was Inserted.   After
• short time tbe trunk began to throw
out shoots, and today It is a tall tree,
with heavy foliage. Tbe .water pipe ls
now completely overgrown, and lt ts
• strange sight to see • Jet of water
stream forth from ths Interior of the
uninjured treo.       ;    .
"Canada's    First    Great    Physician"
Title   Often   Applied   Him—How
He Deserved the Honor.
"Canada's first great physician"
was a description often applied to Sir
William Hingston, who has died in
Montreal. On the principle that great
men lived before Agamemnon, the
popular idea of Sir,William may have
been unjust, but it is undoubted that
he was the most famous medical man
Canada had produced up to the time
Prof. Osier became so widely known.
His career has been no longer than
it haB been distinguished, both in
publio life and in liis profession. In
the latter he stood quite abreast of the
most successful American doctors for
a quarter of a cei.tury, and hardly a
week went by without bringing to hiro
9ome patient from the United States
who believed that in his own country
there was no physician quite as capable as the doctor at Montreal. Although 78 years old at the time of his
death, Sir William's standing among
the medical men of the country remained what it had been for a generation.
Won  Honors Abroad.
He was born in Montreal ill 1&!9.
His father had come to Canada as
adjutant of the famous Hundredtb
Regiment and fought througli the
War of 1312. After the disbanding cl
the regiment, in 1819, Col. Hingston
took up his residence on the Chateau-
guay River. He died when his Bon
was only 18 months old. William received his early education in Beau-
harnois, and then, at the age of 15,
entered the Montreal College. His
first year there gave a promise of a
brilliant future, for he captured three
first and two second prizes out of a
possible five. HU first intention, after
leaving school, was to become a chemist, and he spent two years in preparation. At the end of this time ho
had concluded to become a doctor,
and entered McGill, graduating in
1851. Afterward he proceeded to take
a post-graduate course at Edinburgh,
and continued hia studies in several
European countries. Of honors he
won in Europe one was membership
in the Imperial Leopold Academy,
and he was the first Canadian to so
distinguish himself. Then he returned to Montreal and began the serious
business of his profession. For surgery he had a peculiar aptitude, and
it is recorded that in 1867, on a visit
to Edinburgh, he performed a most
difficult operation at the request of
Sir James Simpson, one of the greatest surgeons living, and a keen admirer of the Montreal doctor.
Tha First In Canada.
As surgeon of the Hotel Dieu Hospital, he was able to practice his art
over a wide field, ana soon his skill
was known far ond wide. It was when
filling this post that Dr. Hingston had
the honor of performing for the first
time in Canada a number of difficult
operations, removal of the kidney, excision of the knee, and excision of the .
tongue and lower jaw being among
them. He was one of the organizers
of the McGill University Society, and
a resuscitator of the Medico-Chirur-
gical Society of Montreal, the first,
secretary of the Dominion Medical
Society, and afterwards its president.
When Bishop's College Medical School
was organized he was appointed professor of surgory, but soon resigned.
In 1876 he was chosen by the International Council to represent Canada
at the Philadelphia Medical Congress,
and in 1867, when the congress met
at Washington, he was again offered
this honor. So one might continue the
list of professional honors, concluding:
with knighthood in 1395. There is
hardly any distinction open to a
Canadian medical man that he had
not received.
Mayor of Montreal.
As a public man Dr. Hingston first
came before the people of Montreal
as a candidate for the Mayoralty in
1875. He received about ten votes to>
his opponent's one, and, as he stated
at. the time, "without having spent
one moment of time or one shilling of
money to obtain a position which no
one should seek, but which, coining
as it did, no one waa at liberty to decline." He was re-elected by acclamation, but declined a third term. The
period of bis Chief Magistracy waa
one of unusual importance, especially
at the time of the Guibord affair. For
the wise and moderate manner in
which he discharged his duties Mayor
Hingston received the thanks of the-
Governor-General, Lord Dufferin.
■ He has been a frequent contributor
to the medioal journals, and not infrequently his papers interested a far
wider field of readers than the medical profession. For example, a well-
considered essay on the climate of
Canada and its relation to human
life was a Step in. removing an ignorant prejudice that is now fast disappearing.

Zam-Buk, the favorite household
balm and salve, is now adopted as
"The Doctor" by leading parties engaged in surveying various parts of
the Dominion lands.
Mr. Henry Hall, writing from Fort
William, says: "Having proved how
beneficial Zam-Buk is in cases of
cuts, skin injuries and diseases, I determined to keep a supply handy.
Being engaged to go on a survey, I
thought it would be a most Useful
thing to take along. I obtained a
supply in Fort William and very well
it was I did so. I may say that
pretty nearly every day it was called
into requisition by one or other of
the party for cuts, bruises, burns, or
some injury or other. It is wonderful how quickly Zam-Buk takes the
soreness out of cuts, burns, bruises
■and injuries; and on our survey it
earned golden opinions from all who
had occasion to try it. I have found
it very fine for skin disease, and I
can strongly recommend it as a household balm."
Mr. Lascelles Scott, one of the lending Government analysts, says: "I
have no hesitation in certifying the
entire purity of Zam-Iiuk, whicll in
my opinion is excellently adapted for
skin injuries and diseases." Zam-
Buk cures cuts, scalds, burns, bruises,
■eczema, scalp sores, ringworm, ulcers, abscesses. chapped places,
Spring pimples, blood poison, chronic
abscesses, etc. As an embrocation
it relieves rheumatism, neuralgia and
sciatica. All druggists and stores

Price of Platinum.
Platinum, ounce for ounce, is   now
worth more than half as much again
as gold, while the demand for platinum, like the demand for other metals, has  increased.    There has  been
talk of an export duty on the metal
produced    in  Russia,    and a rumor
that  such  a duty  was  about  to  be
imposed was given credit for causing
the recent sharp advance in the price
of  the   metal;  but    the  export    tax
plan, it is reported, has been definitely abandoned,  and the Russian  government  will  make, special    inducements    to     encourage     prospecting.
French investors are heavily interest-
I ed in the industry.   Tlie largest producer and also an extensive buyer of
crude  platinum in    the  Urals  is    a
I French company operating a large refinery in Paris.    It should be noted
' that the imports of platinum into the
United States, which is a large consumer,  during  1905, were valued    at
$2,173,263,    as    against    $1,879,155 in
1904,  an increase    in value of $294,-
108.    Considering    ._e   increased    demand for platinum, the gain in importation  is  slight,  but  if  the  high i
price and scarcity of the metal    be |
taken into    account the    wonder is
that there was not a large decrease
in the quantity imported.—Industrial

European   Peace.
A league of peace already pretty

full of domestic dissensions; Russia is slowly grinding herself to

debt to France; France has a good

consulted a doctor who told me I was
suffering from general debility. I was
forced to stop work and for three
months I followed the doctor's treatment, but without benefit. I was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
and as I had often read of the cases
they cured, I decided to do so. I
only took eight boxes before I was
cured and today I am stronger than
I ever wns. My digestion is pood and
I can now go about my work, without fatigue. I owe a debt of gratitude to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for

Miss Fleury's case is one of many
that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have
cured after doctors' help had failed.
The success of these pills lies in the
fact that they strike right at the
root of the trouble—the blood. Other
medicines simply act on the symptoms of the trouble—and may relieve,
but they do not cure. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills make new rich blood —
that is why they cure dyspepsia,
rheumatism, anaemia, heart palpitation, headache, backache and the ills
of women; all these are caused by
bad blood—Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
cure them all because they make new
blood. For sale at druggists or by

a party of his friends on Tuesday

F. Coy read an address and Mr. W.
R. Owen presented the watch. Mr.
Netherby was taken completely by
surprise, but managed to make a
pleasant little speech of acceptance
and thanks in which he expressed
his deep regard for Mt. Pleasant
and its peoole; he hoped to come
back in the near future and open a
large first-class drug store. Mr.
Netherby passed cigars and his
friends bid him good-bye and wished him a pleasant holiday trip.

The Tablets cure all the little ailments of childhood arising out of a

or bowels. They are good for all
!babies and are sold under the guarantee of a government analyst to
'contain no opiates or harmful drugs.
Mrs. P. D. Kirk, Dumfries, N. 8.,

Tablets for the ailments of m'y little
ones and find them a splendid medicine. A few doses always restores
them to perfect health. I would not

boils broke out all over my neck. My
blood seemed absolutely filled with
impurities and poisons. My liver
was disordered, too, and I was dull,
weak and ailing. Bileans purified my
blood and cured the boils and pimples; they also toned up my system

me with life and vigor!"

Use for the "x"-ray.
Even such tricks as hiding jewels
in hollow shoe-heels or swallowing
diamonds cannot longer be depended upon to cheat the customs officials.
In the French government tests of
the "x"-ray detective of Alphonse le
Roux, persons representing smuggling
passengers have been examined without removal of clothing or any indignity except being detained a few
moments before the apparatus, and
so rapid is the process that 167 persons received attention in forty-five
minutes. On these individuals were
articles of many kinds, variously concealed. Watches were revealed in the
hem of a woman's skirt, a tiny
locket under a young man's tongue,
watch chains and a bracelet in tlie
coils of a woman's hair, card-cases
in a man's shoes, and even buttons
—proving the presence of gloves—under the clothing over a man's chest.
Tried on postal packages, without
breaking sells or untying strings, all
kinds of articles were shown in the
most innocent and unlikely places.—

A Pill for Generous Eaters.—There
are many persons of healthy appetite and poor digistibn who, after a

A  Marvelous  Machine.
A machine which threads a thousand needles a minute is at work in
a Swiss factory. 'The purpose of the
machine is to thread needles that
are placed afterwards in a loom for
making lace. The device is almost
entirely automatic. It takes the
needle, carries it along, threads it,
ties the knot, cuts tlie thread off a
uniform length, then carries the
needle across an open space, and
places it in a rack. The work o.
threading these needles war formerly
done by hand.
The early spring number of "The
Designer" has a useful and interesting array of household matter and
fiction. The first fifty pageB are
mainly devoted to the display and
description of gowns designed for
spring and summer wear, and to the
illustration of the accessories that go
with them. The end of the book is
reserved for articles relating to household affairs, among which are the
three sections of matter contributed
by the readers of "The Designer"
containing many practical bits of advice about children, homes and wage-
earning. Simple entertainments,
suitable for little home evening affairs, are always given in "The Designer," and in the March number
some verse suitable for recitation is
included. The Puzzle pages, the
Fashion Notes for Men, the practical
advice about how to make and keep
oneself beautiful, the lectures by a
florist on how to grow flowers—all
regular departments of the magazine
—are full of especial interest this
The Fiction is made a feature in
the March number. A continued
story by Miles Bradford, author of
' Carlotta and I." is begun, entitled
"Economy Farm." Also, Edilh Parker Johnson, now a resident of Korea,
has contributed an interesting article called "An American Garden in
Korea." Besides these, there is a
story by Edwin L. Sabin and a particularly graceful little poem ol

System Exhausted by Worry  and   Loss of
Sleep—Perfect Health the Result of Using
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
Such cures as this make it impossible to doubt the restorative influence of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
Mrs. E. J. Vanderburgh, of Eastern Welland avenue, St. Catharines,
Ont., states: "For twenty-one years
I was badly afflicted with heart
trouble, nervousness and cramps in
the limbs, also twitching'of the muscles and nervous headaches. I became weak, debilitated and emaciated.
My condition was distressing and'I
was made worse through worry and
loss of sleep.
"I tried a hundred remedies in vain
and reading about Dr. Chase's Nerve
Food I decided to try it. After having used half a dozen boxos of this
preparation my old trouble had entirely vanished and I was enjoying
better health than I had since girlhood. I am now past middle life
and am in perfect health. I would
not take worlds today and go back
to niy former state."
There is more or less mystery and
doubt as to the specific action of many
drugs, but it is positively and definitely known that iron forms new
red corpuse'es in the blood, or, in
other words, makes the blood rich
and nourishing.
But iron alone cannot be taken
into a delicate stomach. Tho great
secret of the success of Dr. Chase's
Nerve Food is in the way iron is
combined with certain other restoratives so as to make a preparation
that can be used with the greatest
benefit by even the most weak and
delicate person.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is also
slightly laxative as well aB tonic in
influence, and while building up the
system insures the regular and healthful action of the digestive, filtering
and excretory systems.
If you would enrich the blood,
strengthen the nerves and replace
weakness and disease with health and
vigor use Dr. Chase's Nerve Food;

"By the way, your front gate needs

Mr.  Edison  laughed.

THE golden rule In cold weather ls
to keep the extremities warm, and
the HrBt and most important rule
for carrying It out ia never to be tightly
shod. Boots or shoes that (it tightly
prevent the free circulation of the blood
by pressure; but when, on the contrary,
they do not embrace the foot too firmly,
the si ace left between the shoe and the
stocking has a good supply of warm air.
The second rule is never to sit in damp
shoes, it is often aupposed that unless
shoes are positively wet it Is unnecessary to change them while the feet are
at rest. This is one of the greatest fallacies, for when the least dampness la
absorbed Into the sole In Its evaporation
It absorbs the heat from ihe foot, and
thus perspiration Is dangerously checked. This can be easily proved by trying
the experiment of neglecting the rule.
The feet will be found cold and damp
after a few mh-utes, although, on tak-
'ng off the shoe and examining lt, It will
appear to be quite dry.
I f THINK It waa some wise old chap
I ln Elizabeth'* time who aaid:
I "There la an hour In each man's life
* appointed to make his happiness, lf
then he seize it," but it la that seizing
business that's the rub. If only opportunities came to us ready labeled, it
would be dead eaay to take advantage
of them, but they don't.
Early training may have something to
do with our blindness. We haven't
learned to look out for the thlnga that
may come our way, and very few capabilities spring into life full-grown. Kindergarten babies of today are given
building blocks and lumps of clay witb
which to make things—not necessarily
special things, but something, and the
principle Is a good one.
Competition Is a big incentive to work,
and the human atom who sees his neighbor In the adjoining chair constructing
a man-of-war out of some bits of three-
Cornered wood   ls apt to call upon his
own Imagination, and watch for a
chance to build something more wonderful. He ls seeing his opportunltlea,

There never was a succeasful Invention patented that there did not come
before the public, half a dozen claimants
who had thought of the same thing, and
who were just getting their plans into
shape when the other fellow dumped the
full-fledged scheme on the market. It is
no doubt true that they did think of It,
but if they couldn't see the opportunity
to present It flrst, tho other fellow is
not to blame.
It's the same way with every Bort of
work. If we don't see our chances for
writing a certain article, for doing a
particular sketch, for designing a little accessory of dress, somebody else,

It takes longer to put trimmings on your

about  things shook her head.
"Some women put more energy and
time Into one nasly speech lhan Ihey

who works for a living, thoughtfully;
"but, all Ihe same, 1 slick lo my old

LIGHT, moderate exercise for a
short period will have very little
effect in reducing flesh. If you
have allowed yourself to become
awkward and heavy, it will take very
serious attention on your part to reduce
this superfluous fat. lt la only through
vigorous exercise and profuse perspiration that thla can be accomplished.
An actresB famous for her beauty, and
now approaching middle life, has solved
this important problem by swathing in
flannel the overdeveloped parlB and
throughout an hour's vigorous exercise,
drinking freely of hot water. These are
legitimate aids  In  reducing flesh.
Choose a few exercises and practice
them faithfully, constantly increaalng
the number of repetitions and you will
be rewarded by a return of symmetry
and elegance of figure.
To make the waist small and flexible
try this exercise of body raising. Stretch
out on top of a table face down. With
the feet held, 'or caught at one end of
the table, bend the body at the hlpo
over the opposite end of the table. Now,
with feet firmly held, hands at back of
the neck, elbows well back and head
up, chin in, bring the torso to a horizontal position; bend downward toward
the floor, then backward to horizontal
position again; repeat three times. Do
not practice this exercise lf you And
lt strains the muscles of the back, as
serious results may ensue without
proper precautions.   Always have an at

RAINY days often mean trouble in
the household where there aro
plenty of children, and some
one has suggested that the mother of
such a brood would dc well to provide
herself wl.h a rainy-day closet.
To It will find their way special playthings, rtserved for state occasions-
pictures, scrap books, paste pots, scissors, old magazines and paint boxes.
Anything, In fact, that can provide indoor amusement. When the rainy day
comes round the closet may be opened
and a distribution of its blessings made
Children delight in novelty, and the
very fact that there is a special treat
reserved for the days when the sun

FORTUNE-TELLING, in one form
or another,  will  probably never
lose Its popularity as a means of
entertaining people.    Most of ua
are egotists enough to enjoy peeps into
the future, even if we've no faith in lt.
To the would-be amateur fortuneteller a word of caution should be
given: don't tell bad news, even lf
the cards reveal it, to any one, no
matter how impresslv it makes the
fortune; and be particularly careful
what you tell those credulous mortals
who are to be found in every group, lf
you do tell bad luck, tell it in conjunction with something good, so that
its force IB broken. Otherwise, some
one is certain to worry over it, ridicu-
ous as taking such things seriously
teems to those of us whose nerves
Are not easily upset.
Ask the person whose fortune you
are to tell to make a wish, while you
shuffle and reshuffle the cards. Then
lay them, face down, upon the table
and ask her to cut them in three piles.
Look at the cards ln each.pile separately. If, in the one in which the
nine of hearts is found, there are
two aces, the cards foretell the getting of her wish.
Discard the spot cards below the
sevens, and take out a queen (or
king) to represent your "client." For
a dark woman the right queen ls that
of spades; dark hair and blue eyes
take a heart, chestnut hair and brown
eyes a club, and a fair woman a diamond.
Lay the face card down on the table
end lay out four at a time of the pack
left after discarding, placing one on
the left of the face card, one on the
right, one above and one below. The
cards the card faces (the queen's head
is rlways turned to one side) tell
what Is to be; those behind her, what
has passed; those over the card, what
s, or will be, in her mind, and those
below her, what she triumphs over.
The significance of the cards, according to an old colored "mammy" whose-
readings were a never-falling source of
delight to "young white folks," and a.
creator of awe among her own people,
are as follows:
Spades: ace—love, or, coming upside-
down, slckne88; ten—something immediate, or a disappointment (the "or," of
course, depending upon 'he other card*
which appear wiih it); nine— deBpair, or
a quart el: eight—In the far future;
seven—vexation, annoyance.
Clubs: ace—a letter, some testimonial
of distinction and honor; ten—a Journey; nine—a proposal, a present; eight-
prosperity and success in business;
seven—Inheritance, gain, profit.
Hearts: ace—your home; ten—a wedding; nine-betrothal, the "wish' card
as well; eight—great surprise; seven-
falling ln love, a love affair.
Diamonds: ace—great prosperity,
news; ten—Immediate pleasure, meeting
a long-absent friend; nine—sickness or
money; eight — pleasant information;
The face cards i.iean people light or
dark, according to the rules given for
determining the Individual's card; ano)
the kings mean older men than do Jacks
Read according to -he groups rather
than from each card, setting the meanings of the cards "glvi and take" from
each other.
Three cards of one kind coming together rlgnify: 3 aces-i great surprlae;
3 tens-finding a new i-iend; 3 ninesr-a
removal; 3 elghts-somi thing unexpected; 3 sevens—a loss; 3 J.cks—deceit and
treachery; 3 queens--,! quarrel- 1
kings—a warning. The cards following teli the nature of the meaning
A llttle practice—and a good deal of
imagination!—will resuli in your learning to tell a very Interesting fortune In.

"Hefore I read It let me advise you
to revise It and strike out every other

will be flitOnUhed at flndliiK how

I do plead for short, pithy letters.
They will be read by more people and
with moro attention than longer papers, and room can be made for
them where I hIhmiIi] like to have our
practical women and ..opld-be learners represent- <1. .ay whut you hnve

Hnve 1 ever told in this Corner our
family anecdote of tho guinea pig?
One of our small boys was told to
"pick up a guinea pig by the tall and
see his eyes drop out." The 4-year-
old thus described the failure of tho
"I couldn't take him up by the tall,
for he hadn't any! It wasn't cut ore
or broken off, either. The guinea pig
just stopped there!"

Fruit Punch and Salad
Tou flatter nie by asking for the formulas
for fruit punch and fruit salad you had
when yuu lunched at my house last sum-.
mer. It given mc pleasure to Inclose recipes. Tou may rely upon them as exact.
They have been often tried In my family.
C. C. (Elizabeth. N. J.).
Fruit Punch.
Add to the Juice nf one can of pineapple
that nf six lemons and three oranges, one
can of rich preserved strawberries ana one
of tho same quality of preserved cherries.
Sweeten to taste and let all stand for two
.   or three hours.    Add,  then,  a quart and a
cupful of Iced water and a large cupful of
chopped   ice.    If  you  wiBh,   you  may  also
udd a pint of claret.
Fruit Salad.
Put Into "individual" cups three strawberries to each, canned or fresh; some
grated olneapple, a teaspoonful of orange
;*'ilii and the same of grapefruit; a very
llttle svrup from preserved ginger; a teaspoonful uf lemon Juice, one of raspberry
Juice, n little sugar and nil up the cup with
marasohino cherries. Set in ice until very
cold,   Rut from the cups.
I can testify the punch was as nectar and the salad was as ambrosia
to my thirsty self on the June day of
the memorable luncheon that introduced a dozen of us women to the delicacies aforesaid.
From a Young Housewife
Apropos of the fruit salad, we have
a request from a young housewife In
Memphis, Tenn.:
I am aahamed to tell you how little I
know of real housekeeping, but proud to
repeat thst my John told my mothei-ln-
law   last   night   that   I   bid   fair   to   be   as
flood a cook as nerself In time. I do mean
o do my very beBt to justify hia praise
of one who married within a year after
sho' left school. And, as "Rosa' says to
"Martha" In her distractions, "When do
girls get tlma tu learn anything of the
most Important of a woman's professions?"
I, for one, am determined to study hard
until I  "get there."
Now for my petition:  John was at a "Stag
supper''   the other night,  and  there was a
fruit   salad   that   Just   captivated   his  gastronomic   heart.    He   says   It   "looked   like
grapefruit   on   the   outside   and  tasted   like
everything   good   Insldu."    He   Is   sure   he
"detected   celery   and   banana,   snd   there
was  mayonnaise   dressing."    Can   you   put
ma In  tho  way of getting the  recipe from
this most  msscuilnc snnlysls?   I  am,  or I
t was,  a country girl, and rather "new'    to
■ modem Taney dishes.    Hut  I  should dearly
lo\e   to   surprise   my   dear' boy   with   that
* particular salad some Sundny 'night.
We keep but one maid, and. I get supper
every other Sunday. I must tell you that I
can make beautiful mayonnaise dressing.
The rest of the salad Is wbat bothers me.
Ho you suppose he really "detected what
he thinks he did?
R. 8. H. (Memphis, Tenn.).
I am sure that he did detect the Ingredients ho named. As positive, also,
that the captivating mixture was
served In the skins of grapefruit. Try
this recipe when your next Sunday
evening    "at    home"    comes    around;
Cut the Inner and crlspest stalks of
celery into half-Inch lengths. Skin a
banana and cut It Into r t cubes. Do
the same with a t nder tart apple. (A
"snow apple" would be good for this
purpose.) Have ready a couple1 of
halved grapefruit, from which you
have removed aU the pulp bo carefully
that you have . ot torn the skin of
either half. Cut the pulp taken from
one of the halves Into small pieces in
else corresponding to the apple and
banana   dice.     Put   all   these   Into   ■
chilled bowl and set in the ice or in a
very cold place for half an hour. You
do not need to be reminded that the
mayonnaise should be made lirst of
all, and left out ln the cold while you
are preparing the rest of the ln-
gredfents? The emptied halves of the
grapefruit should lie in ice (cracked)
until you are ready to make ready
for serving. Then empty, wipe and
fill them with the fruit mixture as
soon as you have poured the mayonnaise into the bowl and tossed tho
contents up lightly with a silver fork
to Insure thorough incorporation of
fruit and dressing. Put a half teaspoonful of the mayonnaise on the top
of each portion of fruit and serve
the filled skins upon small plates.
Let me know if this is what won
John's heart, and how he receives the
Sunday  night  surprise.
Suggestions for Churning
May a practical butter maker BUggeet to
"Mrs. a. H " that a small barrel churn Is
preferable to- the' .old-fashioned "dasher"
chum? In using the more modern vessel,
mb soo i as the granules of butter appear on
the si.rface of the milk, pour In a dipperful
of cod water, and, when the clots are all
formed and collected on the liquid, drain oft
the buttermilk tnrough the. hole provided
for the purpose. Stop this, with a cork, and '
pour in a bucket of cold water In summer,
wanner in winter—say from 5(3 to BO degrees.
Pit on the lid and turn the churn Beveral
times. Drain away the water and salt while
the butter is still In the churn. Stir with a
round stick, used for this purpose alone, A
butler paddle will do. Walt fltteen minutes,
then, with the lid still fastened down, turn
as in churning, and the butter will be thoi-
oughly worked and the salt evenly distributed. It may now be moulded Into pats or
packed ln boxes that come for the purpose,
holding from one to Ave pounds.
This Is a much easier and quicker way
than the old method of lifting the butter out
Into a bowl, working, setting away and
working again.
And If "Mrs. A, H." wants to make
money with her butter, ahe'can get iwo
cows, and. witli a cream separator, she
would And the work would be done most expeditiously with the barrel churn, and. as I
have indicated, with more satisfactory re-
suits. Mrs. F. B. Q. (McNabb, 111.)*
How to Hull Corn
I get so much good out of the Exchange
that I should like to help a weo bit. So I
venture to answer "I, L. W.," who asks
for a recipe for hulling com.
Soak the corn over night in warm water-
almost hot. In the morning drain oft the
water; put the soaked corn into-a kettle;
cover deep' with hot water, adding to each
quart of corn two tablespoonfuls 'w baking
soda. Cook gently until the hulls will .slip
off when the grains are rubit- d ln the hand.
Pour oh" the soda water; cover the corn
wJth DUrs cold water and rub off the hulls,
changing the water several times as It becomes clouded by the hulls. When the corn
Is cleaned, return lo the kettle, pour in
plenty of cold water, and bring again to
the boil. This dono, drain once more, cover
with cold wnter, salt to taste, end cook
tender.    It Is now ready to eat.
Our grandmothers used Ive to loosen the
hulls, but the Boda will do the work a,*»
I have tried to make this as short and as
plain as possible.
MRS. e. e. c. (Union,  111,).
You are to be congratulated on your
Bucee_s.    We thank you.
A Wish Gratified
I saw In your Corner that "1. L. W., of
Buffalo, N. Y.," wants a recipe for hulled
I have made It every year for ten years
according to an easy and simple formula. I

Hulled Corn for "I* L. W."

Into a large pot; cover deep with cold water; add three heaping teaspoonfula of n.ii-
natus, or of taking tooa, and bull gently
Until the hulls will rub off easily ln the
hands. Drain, and wasn the cum until the
water runs char. Cover again with cold
water and boil for half an hour. Wash
once more. Proceed in thiB way until the
corn is ter der, and the lust water in which
it fs boiled is not at all dlsculotcd. At first
It will be very red, but each washing will
make it llghtar. It will take several horns
to n.ake it ready, but it requires no care
while in cooking. 1 keep the coin In mi
