[T was a May morning off Setucklt Point Tbe Point itself
was ln the middle distance,
with the lighthouse top shin-
lug biack against the sky and tbe little
cluster ot fishing shanties showing
brown amid the white sand iluues uud
green beach grass. The life saving station was perched on the highest of the
dunes, and Its cupola wus aloost us
conspicuous as the lighthouse. The
thick clQUd. apparently of mosquitoes,
hovering over the point wns lu reality
the Hock of mackerel gulls thut ure always bunting for sand eels ou the flat.
Low down across the horizon miles beyond was smeared the blue und yellow
streak thut marked the mainland of
tbe cape.
l-> the. right, only half a mile away,
but through the darker water that indicated the ship channel, a four masted schooner was moving swiftly, the
cnnshiue flushing sparks from ber cub-
In windows and marking high lights
and shadows on her swelling canvas.
Ahead of her, against the sky line, wns
the lightship that marked the turning
point ln tbe course. Behind, not quite
so far away, was the other lightship
that she had just passed. More schooners were following her, strung out In a
long line, and others, bound In the opposite direction, were standing Inshore
or heading out to sea as they beat up
In the face of the brisk wind. An occasional steamer or an ocean tug with
a tow flaunted a dingy streamer of
smoke here and there amid the graceful schooners.
Along the edge of the channel and
sprinkled amid the blue were patches
of light green water wbere the waves
ran higher and broke occasionally.
There were the shoals—the "Razor-
back," the "Boneyard" and the rest. If
lt were possible and fashionable to
erect tombstones for lives lost at sea
these hidden sand bars would brlstla
with them. Not a winter month that
passes but vessels are driven ashore
here, and the wicked tides and winds
scatter their timbers far and wide. Tbe
Setucklt life saving crew have few
restful hours from Ootober to May.
On the edge of one of these shonls,
just over ln deep water, a little
schooner lay at anchor, rocking nnd
plunging Incessantly. Her sails were
down, and only one mnn was aboard.
Half a mile away, just where the tail
of the shoal made out into the channel, two dories were moving slowly in
parallel courses, trailing a rope between them. The schooner was tbe
Lizzie; the man aboard her was Barney Small, once a stage driver, but
now, forced out of business^ b.v the new
railroad, back again nt his old trade-
wrecking. Captnln Ezra Titcomb was
rowing one dory and Bradley Nlekerson the other. They were "anchor
The two dories moved slowly down
the edge of the shoal, separated by a
distance of perhaps a hundred yards.
The line between them, weighted with
a lead sinker at each end, was dragging nlong the bottom.
They were dragging for an anchor
lost by the coasting schooner Mary D.
a month before. She had been caught
by the tide, and tlie olinln hart been let
go with n rnn. One of the bands
aboard—Eldredge by nnme—wns nn
Orhnm man, nnd he had had the presence of mind to tnke the "ranges,"
which information he lind sold to Captain Titcomb for a five dollnr bill.
Bradley nnd the captain begnn rowing once more. They had gone but a
little way when, slowly but surely, tho
dories begnn to drnw nearer to ench
other. Bradley, looking over the side,
pnw that the "drag line" no longer
hung straight down, but, tightly
stretched by whatever was holillng It
on the bottom, led off diagonally
They kept on rowing easily, anil In
a Tew minutes the pressure on the line
had brought the dories side by siile.
I lien Bradley passed his end of the
rope to bis partner, who began haul-
lug in with care. By this operation
the skipper's dory was soon brought
directly over the spot where lay the
hidden object. Bradley rowed bis own
boat alongside.
"Now, then," snld Cnptnln Titcomb,
"let's see lf she's got tbo rlgbt complexion."
He leaned over the side nnd, taking
oue end of the liue In ench band,
pulled them tight and suwed vigorously back and forth, thus drawing a section of the rope again uud again uuder
tbe treasure trove below. Theu he paid
out one end of the line aud hauled ln
tbe other until this section came to the
surface. It was marked wltb a dud
red aJatn—Ir.on rust. .  .    -

TOe -Haileffenff of the "way line," a
stout .rope tapering from one .Inch to
three inches ln thickness, was spliced
to the "drag line" and drawn down
und under the supposed anchor until
the latter was looped by it. Then the
"messenger," an iron shackle or collar
fastened by a bolt or pin, was clamped
about the upper parts of the loop. To
this "messenger" was also attached a
small cord.
The "way line" was drawn tight, and
the heavy "messenger" plunged out of
sight beneath tbe water. It slid down
to the end of the "way line," thus holding with a tenacious grip the submerged object. They tested with the
"messenger," pulling it up with the
cord and letting it drop again. It
struck solidly and with the tingle of
metal agaliret metal.
Bradley pulled down the Lizzie. Barney and he hoisted canvas enough to
give them steerage way, and the little
vessel ran alongside of the"captaln's
dory. Then the ropes were rigged
through the block In the, fore rigging,
nnd Bradley and Barney fitted In the
brakes of the clumsy hand windlass,
while Captain Titcomb stood by the
"H'lst away!" commanded the skipper.
The windlass creaked, the cabletlght-
ened and the blocks groaned aB x.
heavy weight was lifted from the bottom. A minute or two moi-n aud the
captain signaled to ease up.
"'Look at that." said Captain Ezra,
pointing. "What do you say to a bell-
buoy frame'."
"Why, sure!" Bradley's tone was a
disgusted one. "Well, we've had our
work for nothing. That framework
Isn't worth anytblng."
"'Taln't the stockln' that counts always; It's whnt Santa Claus puts Inside of it. I have a notion this feller
may be a s'prise package. H'lst
More of the wet rope came aboard.
Captain Ezra chuckled. V ,
"I guessed pretty nlgb that time," he
muttered.   "Now, Brad, come here."
Tbe Iron frame. Breen with seaweed
and trimmed with kelp and shells
hung balf out of the water. At its
base, just above the battered and
crushed cone thai had been the buoy,
a big bronze bell glistened and dripped.
"And J can git $25 for thnt bell."
crowed the captain, "whlcb Inithe pres

They bud some long talks together
concerning their new venture, wliich
up to date, although tbey bud made
some money, bnd uot given them the
opportunity for a "big job" that they
hoped for.
"Brad," observed the crptaln us they
were walking up from Ihe wharf one
evonlti.-. "are you glttln' discouraged'/"
"No, not yet. I didn't expect anything different this first summer."
"What do the old maid* say?"
"Oh, they believe I'm going to get

"Of course. Well, maybe they ain't

tbe slightest flavor of sarcasm apparent in this question, so Bradley admitted that he and Gus did have a good
many talks on the subject.
And this statement wasn't an exaggeration, lt hnd become a regular
thing for the junior partner In the
nnchor dragging concern to drop In at
the Bnker homestead of an evening
after supper was over and discuss happenings and plans with Gus. The feeling thnt the girl wns not so wholly at
one with him In his hopes and ambitions as she used to be had galled
Bradley. He resented her criticisms
of the new venture on the evening
when he first told her of lt. Five
years before, he knew, she vould have
thought It "splendid" simply because
he thought so. He hnd come home expecting to find her unchanged, forgetting how much he hnd changed himself,
and now he determined that be would
compel her to believe ln him and bis
Dancing was one of the subjects on
whleh they didn't agree. Bradley
considered dancing nonsensical and a
waste of time. Gus, on the other band,
was very fond of It.
"I'd rather saw wood myself," declared the former one evening.
"There'd be about as much work in it,
and considerably more fun."
"But, Brad, I do like dancing, and
there are dances here once in awhile,
such as they are, and—well, I wish
you danced."        ,
"I suppose I could manage to navigate tlirough a quadrille without
wrecking more than half the set, but
a waltz would hnve me out of sound-
lugs In uo time."
"Will you try to learn If I teach

"Great Scott! Let's Imagine something pleasant to begin on. All rlgbt.

One evening toward tbe end of the
month Gns snld to him: "Brad, If you
were I would yon go to the ball on the
evening of Decoration day at the
town ball?   I've had two invitations."
"Humph!" Tue answer was somewhat hesitating.
"I supposed you didn't know. Otherwise, of course"—
"1 should have invited my dancing
teacher to go with me. Gus, would
you bave liked It If I had invited
"I should."
"Well, then, Miss Baker, may I have
the pleasure of escorting you to the
grand fandango to be held iu the Orham Crystal palace, under the supervision of his royal swelledness, Mr.
Solomon Bangs?"
"You may, sir. Oh, Brad! Of course
I'd, rather go with you, because"—

The Way Plain Mr. Huggins Is Transformed Into a Star.
"What's become of Huggins?" asked
the vivacious little man to his companion in the cross seat of the Lenox
avenue express. ,
"Has gone to Europe to be discovered," replied the solemn person with
the purple flowing tie.
"You don't say!" returned the other.
"But how to be discovered?"
"It was this way: Huggins was
ready, or thougbt be was ready, to go
on t]xe stage—grand opera, you know.
He bas been very scrupulous. He has
never presented himself to the public
In uny way but as a church singer and
In concert. Huggins had ambitions
and promised himself that be would
not compromise.
"When be was ready for grand opera
he went to a manager and gained permission to sing for him. The manager
grunted n. few limes and growled a
little and then said that Huggins had
a good baritone voice and he would
engage him for season after next.
'"But why not next season?' asked
" 'You'll have to go to Europe first,'
Bald the manager.
" 'Isn't my voice good enough yet?'
asked Huggins, growing indignant
" 'Oh, you'll want to stuJy a lot
more some time.' the manager replied.
'But It Isn't your voice that's the trouble. It's your name. 1 can't draw audiences with a name like Huggins.'
" 'Well, I can tnke a stage name.'
answered Huggins when he'd got over
what be considered it rather unfeeling
comment upon an honorable nnme.
"'It won't do,' returned the mnn-
ager. 'You've got to be discovered.
You're dark complexloned. Go to Europe- -anywhere you like. Study or
loaf or do what you please. If you
can get a chance to sing for some
fourth rate German prince or Italian
count and get a notice or two in the
papers, so much the better. Singing
In some obscure cafe will do as well.
But when I discover you a year from
this summer you must be Signor Hug-
gjnzino or Signor Guessagalnzo or
what you please. Tben I'll tell the papers about your romantic history, we'll
get Into a row about your contract, and
your future will be assured.'
"So Huggins left for Europe last

A Reindeer Hunt.
The morning was warm and bright
but later the sky clouded over and
a thin, misty rain began to fall. It
was on our way bacn, late in the
afternoon, that we came upon a herd
of six or seven deer; but my telescope had become blurred with the
rain, and in the dull light it was
impossible to tell what sort of beasts
they were, so we started in pursuit.
The stalk was absurdly easy, for the
deer had moved down into a gully,
and there was nothing to do but to
walk up to them. When we reached
the gully they had fled out of sight,
but we soon spied them again, so I
left Martinns behind and crawled forward to a big stone within 160 yard*
of the deer. In the bud light and
againsi the grey stone background 1
could not make out the horns, the
only criterion of size to which I could
trust. Slowly the deer filed past, quite ,
unconscious of danger, but all so far |
undoubtedly simple (does). Then
came one considerably larger than the
rest. I could just make out the broad
bases of the horns close to the skull;
so, making no doubt that he was my
boast. I took a quint aim and pressed
the trigger.
A start and a swerve, and down
he came, while the rest of the herd
rattle away over the / stones. ' We
rush up in great spirits, only to find
to our horror that "he" was a miserable she—a big yeld doe whose thick
velvet-covered horns had led me to
take her for her betters. I can remember no moment of keener disappointment. We cleaned the beast, and
between us carried her back to the
farm. I had the loins and haunches
and as it took "us five hours to make
our way home, nnd most of that time
we were going in the dark, we arrived
at the farm , somewhere nbout midnight, quite tired out,—Alfred C. Gat-

He was n freckled faced, foxy looking boy of thirteen or fourteen and not

eyes were clear. The proprietor of

"Do you want a boy here?" asked

"Whnt do I want with a boy?" re-
piled the proprietor -with an Intent to

"I don't know." was tbe unabashsd

"Well, since yuu have mentioned lt.

He started uut, when tne proprietor
called him back.
"Hold on." he snld. "Maybe you ar*

"If you want a good thing. I'm it."

Trio  Commemorated  on  a  Tombaton*
In a Connecticut Cemetery.
In the old cemetery of Central Village, near Plainfleld, Conn., ls the only
tombstone known In New Englauit
erected to a cow and Its owner. In
several cemeteries have been found records thai horses, dogs and even cuts'
"lave been laid at rest beside tbelr
masters, but in no other instance ont
record has a cow had a slab erected la
lier honor.
The cow's name was Rosa, and the
Inscription says that sbe gave two
pounds fifteen ounces of butter from
Ihirteen quarts of mljk lu one dny.
This was a pretty good record for a
cow, nnd a Jersey at that, tbe inscription goes on to say.
On the opposite side of the monument is the Inscription. "All Ready,
Mr. Cudy." and below ure the words,
"At Rest." Above is the outline of a
fiddle crossed with a bow.
Gurdon Cady, to whose memory the-
stone was erected, was known from
the Massachusetts line to Long Island"
sound nnd from Providence to the Connecticut river balf a century ago as the
finest fiddler tbat ever drew a boiv at n
country dance. He had two loves,
Rosa nnd bis fiddle, both of which
found a place on bis tombstone.

Stafford was one of the most populur
fields for Cady and his fiddle. Prom

Nervous System So Exhausted That Vital Organs Are
Feeble In Aotlon
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
The digestive system is a wonderful
piece of machinery, but power is
necessary te> make it effective.
In this case the power is the nerve
force contained in the body, and if the
nerve force is lacking the digestive
system becomes crippled, and there is
suffering from indigestion, nervous
headaches, neuralgic pains, dizzy
spells, weakness and discouragement.
Strength cannot be regained from
the food you eat so long aB digestion
is so imperfect, but you can be restored by Dr. Chase's Nerve Food,
which contains in condensed pill form
the very elements of nature which go
to form new nerve forco.
Overwork, worry, anxiety and excessive mental effort exhaust the nervous system at a tremendous rate,
and repair must be made before some
dreadful form of.nervous disease sets
in. Dr. Chase's Nerve Food invigorates the nerves which control the digestive fluids, sharpens the appetite,
is slightly laxative, so as to encourage
the action of the bowels and strengthens every organ of the body.
You can u"?e this trentment feeling
certain that every dose is doing you
at least some .good, and can prove it
bv noting your increase in weight.
'MrB. J. B. Tardiff, Mariapolis,
Man!, writes:—"When I began the use
of Dr. Chase's Nerve Food my health
was in a terribly bad condition. My
doctor told me that I was going into
consumption and for nearly three
years my bowels were ao loose -.nd
watery that I was continually kept
weak and run down. In spite of the
many rOrriedies used I gradually grew
worse and worse. I could scarcely
get about the house and suffered a
great deal from backache, stomach
and kidney troubles.
"Dr. Chase's Nerve Food proved to
be exactly what I needed and by
keeping up this treatment for a time
I got so strong and well that I did
my own housework and sometimes
worked in the fields without feeling
any the worse for it. It is a pleasure
as well aB a duty for me to recommend
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.

From England comes the following
little comment anent the recent bill to
admit women to sit as aldermen and
The bill to enable women to sit aa
aldermen  and  councillors  on   county
and borough councils has revived all
the usual arguments for and against
women serving on public bodies.    It
is regarded as likely  to promote the
suffragist movement, and some even
see  in  it the  paving  of the  way te
women sitting in parliament and upon
the  bench   at  assizes.    It  does  not
seem likely that the bill will be passed this session, in spite of the Government's   intentions   to   this   effect;
but if it does it is nol, likely to lead
to any of these results.   Women are
already elegible for election on boards
of   guardians,   parish   councils,   and
school  boards,  and  if the  ratepayers
do   not   want   women   on   the   larger
councils  they  would  hnve  simply  to
say so at the polling booths.    In all
probability   it  would   be   found  that
j women are more disposed to be care-
I ful  of  the'ratepayers'  interests  than
i men.    In  any  case  there  is   nothing

The Necessity For Equilibrium In Bird
It Is likely tbat the bird's superb
ease and grace In tbe air are due to Ita
ability to maintain absolute balance.
If a gull makes the mistake of bending until tbe wind strikes its bead
and wings on the top It will tumble
Instantly. And_ the sailing birds,
though tbey make no flapping motion
of their wings, are constantly balancing themselves, like a man on a tight
rope. Some scientists have maintained
that the air sacs make it possible for
the bird to manage' minute changes
that ure very valuable in restoring
equilibrium. It is known that the
wing Is joined to the body of the bird
b.v what Is called a universal joint,
enabling the creature to make almost
every possible motion. The body of a
man Is heavier than wnter. but if he
gets Into a position of perfect balance
he will float. In some such way. It is

Women Who Wear We_L
It Is astonishing how great a change a
fow yoars of married life often make In
the appearance and disposition of many
women. The freshness, tho charm, tho
brilliance vanish llko the bloom from a
pooch which Is rndcly handled. The
matron Is only a dim shadow, a faint echo
of the charming maiden. Thore are two
reasons for this change, Ignorance and
neglect. Fow young women appreciate
the shock to tho system through tha
chango which comes with marriage and
motherhood. Many neglect to deal with
the unpleasant pelvic drains and weaknesses which too often come with marriage and motherhood, not understanding
that this secret drain Is robbing the ehook
of Its  freshness and   the form of   IU

"God  mocks me  with  His summers
and His springs,
His frosts are sent against me," so
I said.
Speaking in anger, "all my flowers
are dead,
And dead are flown the tender summer wings.
He is too careless of His little things;
His giant ages crush the    slender
His barren tempests   wither   men
and flowers!"
A calm voice wandering through the
stubble sings:—
"All hall the harvest and the dust to
Nor may endeavor, ended, smile In
And  you that whimper    in    the

Blown with Its leaves—give o'er, for
Must is Must:
Yet winds sigh not therefor, nor

Frosts are not    wasteful,    nor ls
death unkind."

The Christmas Woman's Home
The Christmas issue of Woman's
Home Companion la a sumptuous
magazine, with several page? in color. The cover is reproduced- from
an exquisite painting by Jessie Wilcox Smith, of a mother and babe.
The number is full of Christmas atmosphere—rattling good Christmas
stories, Christmas pictures by prominent artists, and hundreds of Christmas suggestions of all sorts—practical, fanciful, unique.
Laura Spencer Portor and Jeannette S. Porter contribute "Cinderella," a little family Christmas play.
A feature is a theatrical reminiscence by Clara Morris, "Christmas
on the Road." Dr. Edward Everett
Hale writes of "How to Use the
Christ-Mass," Irving Bacheller has
a new book, and the first part of
"The Cricket Tales" appears ln the
Christmas number, introducing to
the world a character even greater
than the famous Eben Holden. Dr.
Woods Hutchinson, the distinguished physician, in "Children and Candy" dissipates once for all the old
bugaboo that candy Ib harmful.
"It isn't," he says, "lt is one of the
most wholesome things one can eat."
Two songs by the late Edward Grelg,
the famous composer, with full musical score, form a rare treat for the
lovers of good music. There are
scores of articles, in addition, and
the departments are full of Christmas ideas and suggestions.
The men whom I have seen succeed best in life have always been
cheerful and hopeful men, who went
about their business with a smile on
their faces, and took the changes and
chances of this mortal life like men,
facing rough and smooth alike as it
came.—Charles Kingsley.
Time  has  three  children,  fleeting and
Yesterday, To-day and To-morrow j
Who circle about as we travel on,
And yield us our joy and our sorrow.
Yesterday stands in her widow's weeds,
Bereft and broken and sad;
To-day smiles over an unfilled grave,
And To-morrow is distant and glad.
And  we poor wayfarers    worship and
These daughters of Father Time;
And Yesterday grieves and To-day deceives
And To-morrow's    the . maiden sublime.
■ Everyone knows that for anything
to become known, it must be talked
about. For an article to become
popular its virtue must be made the
subject of a public announcement.
That is advertising! Consequently
if the survival of the fittest applies
to business principles as well as it
does to other walks of life, the better the advertising—the better the
publicity—the better the results.
Good results mean good business,
and good business is what every

A very enjoyable session of the
Mt. Pleasant Conservative Club was
held on Monday evening, ln Lee's
Hall. A splendid musical pro-
gramme was given by Messrs. Connolly, Wm. Moore, G. H. Graham
and A. G. Crawford, B. A. The vocal numbers were rendered ln fine
style and the piano selections by
Mr. Crawford were given ln finished
style. Messrs. Moore and Graham
contributed a number of humorous
selections which made every oner feel
jolly. Cigars and pipes were passed, and in tobacchanalian wreaths
the spirit of good fellowship had full
awing. Whist was another pleasant
feature of the occasion.
The Ward V. Conservatives will
meet every Monday evening in Lee's
Hall, and all Conservatives are invited to meet here and enjoy a good
smoke, a game of whist or listen to
the programme and enjoy meeting
with their fellow party spirits. Membership fee is only $1.00 per year,
which includes membership in the
main club down town.

The largest exhibition ever held in
the history of the Vancouver Poultry
and Pet Stock Association took place
this week in the old Methodist
Church building. There were over
fifteen hundred exhibits .and every
one was a splendid showing in fts
particular class. There were large
dignified White Rocks and Wyan-
dottes, fancy Polish poultry with their
flaring top-nots and speckled feathers, giving them a circus appearance; then there were toy-like bantams and sporty looking Game
chickens. Several Pheasants of brilliant plumage were on exhibition.
Canaries varying from the deepest
yellow to a delicate cream were
there in large numbers, and wise
looking parrots added color to the
bird section. Pigeons of puffed-up
and. haughty appearance looked at
one with an air of silent contempt
while the Fantall pigeons looked as
though they were pleased to show
themselves off. The roosters crowed
to one another in various tones and
the hens kept up an encouraging
cackle to the roosters' efforts to out-
crow one another. It was the finest
show yet, and the officers and nmem-
berB are to be congratulated upon
their exhibition for 1907. The
Poultry Show being on Mt. Pleasant
this year has also been a good advertisement for this section of the
city. Mr. Elmer Dixon, of Oregon
City, and Mr. Thos. Wilkinson were
the judges, and' Mr. E. Trimble
was superintendent of the Exhibition.

^Through     Over-work—Dr.     Williams'
Pink Pills Restored  Health
and Strength
Badly run down is the condition of
thousands    throughout    Canada—per-
■haps you are one of them.    You find
"work'a-burdon.    You are wetik; easily tired; out of sorts; pale and thin
Your sleep is restless; your appetite
poor and you suffer from headaches.
All  this  suffering  is  caused   by  bad
blood and nothing can make you well
;but  good  blood—nothing  can    make
' this  good  blood   so  quicklv  as    Dr.
'Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People.
These pills never fail to make, rich,
re'd, health-giving blood.    Mr. H. R.
Reed,   Quebec    city,    says:    "About
'■twelve months ago I was all run O.OWI1
las the result of over-work.    My doctor ordered me to take a complete rest
but this did not help me.    I had no
appetite;  my  nerves • were  unstrung
nnd  I wns go weak  I could scarcely
move.   Nothing the doctor did helped
me  and  I   began  to  think  my  case
was incurable.   While confined to my
room friends enme to see me and one
of them advised me to try Dr. Wil-
-liams' Pink Pills.   I did so and soon
'my appetite improved; my color came
'back and in less than a month I was
nble to leave my room.    I continued
the pills for another month and they
completely cured me.    I am  now in
"the best of health and able to do my
work without fatigue.   I feel sure that
all who are  weak will find  renewed
health and strength in Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills.   They certainly saved me
irom a life of nvsery.

New Meat Inspection Act
The custom prevailing among farmers throughout Canada of slaugntering
animals, paiticularly swine, upon
their own premises and selling car-
eases on the local market, is one
which entails more or less loss to tue
producer. Before the advent of packing establishments, the domestic trade
was supplied by the looal butchers,
who were necessarily compelled to
provide for future supplies, and, as a
result, the local markets were created.
Conditions have changed, however, the
local dealers no longer supplying the
domestic trade, which hns passed into tue linnets of tne paciung nouses,
wbicli a.'c now the distributing centers for meats. Packers can afford to,
and actually do pay higher prices and
sell at lower values than the local
butchers for reasons which are obvious when one considers that profits
are represented by the by-products.
The packers are adverse to buying
dressed carcases as they represent
smaller profits in by-products. Again,
dressed carcases are imperfectly
handled by the farmers, the meat in
many cases being bruised and unsightly; this, as well as improper
chilling, being deteirent to good
prices. Animals, especially hogs, require scientific chilling, otherwise
those parts which enter into the process of curing become sour and unfit
for market. Packers prefer to buy
their meats on the hoof, and for the
reasons set forth above, are able to
pay higher prices for the same.
In view, however, of the large trade
carried on in some parts of Canada,
more particularly during the fall and
winter, in dressed pork, as well as in
other dressed meats, attention may be
directed to one of tue requirements
of the regulations made under the
new Meat Inspection Act, which is
likely to have a considerable effect
on the business above referred to.
The Department of Agriculture at Ottawa having assumed the responsibility of inspecting and practically
guaranteeing the healthfulness of al'
meats and meat products sent out by
the packing houses must, of necessity, protect itself by making sure
thnt no diseased carcases Are permitted to enter these establishments. The
most effective way of preventing the
entry ■ of such d'seused meat is, of
course, the careful aiitemortem inspection provided for by the regulations, but. in view of the large trade
carried on in dressed carcases, and of
the fact that both farmers and packers have been in the habit of handling meats in this way. the officials
in charge of the enforcement of tne
act have decided to admit to the
establishment under inspection, dressed carcases under such conditions as
will enable them to judge witb reasonable certainty, as to whether the a„-
imal, prior to slaughter, was free
from cVsease. Provision has therefore been made for the admission on
inspection of dressed carcases, with
the head, heart, lungs and liver held
by their natural attachments, such
carcases to be inspected before entering the establishment, and if found
fit for food to be so marked and admitted for packing purposes, while if
found to be diseased, to be condemned and tanked.
This being the case, it is incumbent
upon every farmer bringing dressed
hogs or other animals to market to
remember that unless the carcases are
dressed in accordance with the regulation mentioned above, namely, with
these organs left in their proper positions, it will not be possible for the
representatives of the packing houses
to buy such carcases for use in any of
the establishments' coming under the
operation of the Meat and Canned
Goods Act.
The presence of the buyers or
agents of these establishments on our
local markets has always been, at least
to some extent, n safeguard against
possible attempts by local combinations of butchers and others to depress
the price of dressed meats, nnd it
will be well for producers to bear in
mind the new conditions, and when,
for any reasons, unable to market
their stock on hoof, hogs, as well as
other animals, in such a wnv as to
meet the requirements of the new

Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon, ono ounce;
Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla, three
Shake well in a bottle and take a

say the results are simply surprising,
the relief being effected without tbo
slightest injury to the stomach or other organs.

Tripping Over Its Own Feist
According to Mr. Sargent, the commissioner-general oi immigration,
American labor is engaged in the complicated enterprise ot tiyiug to lift itself with one hand while holding itself
down with the other. He says that
"the fact that the United States pays
higher wages than any other country
on earth  brings immigrants here."
Of the truth of that statement there
can be no doubt. Some of our immigrants come for other reasons, bui the
inducement to the great majority is
the possibility of getting two dollars a
day instead of two dollars a week.' If
our business slackens and wages fall
I the tide of immigration shows at once
the close   watch  which  the emigrant
I keeps  on  the  American  wage  scale.
| The number o' arrivals lessens and
many of those of earlier arrivals go |
j home with a little bundle of savings. '
I Labor fights steadilv for higher wages
and almost as steadily opposes immigration. It puts up the premium and
strives to beat back the hands which
reach out to seize it.
Labor's ideal is monopoly of the labor market. It would limit the number of workers and so force from the
community a higher wage than that
compelled by competition. It may be
only a coincidence and it may be the
operation of an economic law, but the
fact is that never in our history have
wages been so high as during the last
Sew years, the period of our heaviest
immigration. Labor is disposed to
overlook the fact that immigrt-i.ts
bring mouths to feed and backs to
clothe, as well as brawn. It appears
not' to see that the producers who
frighten it are also consumers to ke ;p
it busy.
Labor logic is a good deal of a mystery anyway. Sometimes it goes o
the point; sometimes it has the trie*
of stumbling over its own feet.—N.

YOUNG M. tUCH had always longed
to be famous. His father had
died when he was. bjit a child,
leaving him quite wealthy. But he
was not satislied with having lots of
money; he wishe_ to huve the whole
world  know  and  praise  him.
At last the long-sought-for idea
carte to him. He would build the
l>lf_ test telescope In the world—such
.•in instrument as would enable you to
nee clearly all the heavenly bodies in
our universe.
He poured over massive volumes, day
and night, until his plans were completed. Then he called together an
nriny "t workmen and the work was
For six long years the artisans
toiled. At the end of that time they
had finished building the mammolh
telescope. It was three miles long—
of such a length that when  the end
waB raised, snow and ice fathered
around lt, so far above the ground
was it.
The dav had come when it was to
be officially put into use. Most learned scientists were invited to be
among the flrst to gaze at the sky
through this wonderful instrument.
Bands played and immense crowds
gathered. The mysteries of the heavens were to be mysteries no longer;
not the smallest star could now escape the eye.
Swelling with importance and with
the Joy of at last realizing his ambitions, Mr. Rich advanced to take
the first peep through the glass,
while the multitude gazed in awe.
Kor a full minute he looked. Then
he strode toward the learned men, his
eyes shining.
"What do you see " they demanded,
"Oh," said he, "two vast caverns, and
between them a great prominence, like
a huge boulder."
One after another of the wise men
came forward lo look. Their descriptions all agreed with those of Mr. Rich,
except that some added that the boulder
was of peculiar ugliness, and noted
other  features.
Last of all, a young Russian took h;s
turn at the glass. For fully five minutes he looked. The others began to
grow impatient, when he suddenly
turned around, and burst into laughter.
"What ails the man?" "He must have
been strangely affected by what he has
seen!" "He is making us ridiculous. '
These were some of the comments of the
other scientists.
When the young Russian had manage*
to control his laughter he stepped forward totward the group of wiseacres.
"Gentlemen," said lie, "you have been
looking at your own faces in the glass.
The construction of the telescope has
apparently been faulty, so . that the
blackness beyond tliis lens has served
merely to make lt a mirror." *
The scientists begnn to realize that by
their descriptions they had only been
making sport of themselves. They left
In a huff.
No sooner did the crowd learn that
the telescope was not a success than
their indignation rose to such a pitch
that they mobbed tlie poor man who
wished fOT greatness.
Mr. Rich was now very poor. Hin
dreams of greatness were all vanished.
IN THE construction of good cages
for squirrels, chipmunks or white
rats, you need nothing more than
a small quantity of wire cloth, tin
boxes and  wood.
Figure 1 Is a simple house to make.
Cut the baseboard twenty-eight inches
long, fifteen inches wide and one inch
and a  quarter   thick.
Ten inches from one end saw off
strips so that the end will be six inches
in width. Eleven Inches from this end
erect a square partition, covered with
tin, so that the animals will be unable
to gnaw the wood at the edges or
around the hole that leads to tiie cylinder for exercising. Tacks mny also be
.driven around  this hole to protect it..
At the wide end of the board drive
a wicket made of stout wire or quarter-
inch wire rod. Tack the wire cloth to
the backboard and wire lt to the wicket.
Along tlie edges of the baseboard bore
holes into which the wires of the netting may slip at the bottom. A door
made of wire cloth is hung on hinges,
soldered to  the  galvanized cloth.
At the small end of tlie bnsebonrd
attach a wedge-shaped piece of-wood,
six inches broad at the bottom and two
Inches broad at the top. Nail a connecting strip from the top of tliis wedge
to tiie top of the backboard.
