Olive's Courtship
BY LAURA JEAN LIBBEY
Author of "A Cruel Revenge/' "A Forbidden Marriage," "A Beautiful Coquette," "The
Heiress of Cameron Hall"
(Continued.)
CHAPTER IV.
It was Judge Knecland's custom to
lunch at home with his daughter
whenever his relaxation from official
duties would permit it.
He was a very stern man, and no
one had ever accused him of being
anything else than a brave one, but
somehow he dreaded going home to
his lovely, imperious young daughter and telling her what had occurred at the office.
He opened the door with his latchkey very softly and stepped into the
marble corridor, and as he proceeded
toward his library the sound of girlish laughter floated up to him
through the open stained-glass window from the lawn below.
The judge entered his library,
crossed over to the window, and
looked down into the grounds. Tho
picture that he saw made his heart
glow with warmth and pride. Ah!
was there anything in this world
that he loved as he did his fair
young daughter Olive, the light of
his existence, the treasure of his old
ige?
She was standing in the centre of
the lawn watching the gardener at
work over one of the flower-beds—a
tall, slim young girl with large,
laughing blue eyes looking out of a
very fair face whose only fault was
the curling lips which betokened
more than the usual share of
haughtiness and pride. The small
head was crowned with a luxurious
mass of nut-brown hair that glinted
into gold where the sunlight -fell on
it.
There was too much character, to
much fire and animation in her face
f-5r Olive Kneeland- to be callni)
Beautiful,' as poets and painters describe beauty. Graceful she certainly
was from tho crown of her Jufly
brown head to the toe of her dainty
slippered foot, and what was far better than beauty, she possessed, and
all unconsciously on her part, the
power that is God's best gift to woman, the power of fascinating with
her wonderful vitality, which was revealed' in every glance, tone and
word to thoSe with whom she came
in contact, and brought every heart
at  her  feet. ■'
She wore only a simple white
challie gown sprinkled over with
tiny forget-me-nots, and a white
straw sailor-hat with a swallow's
wing perched gracefully on one side
of it. Yet even in this simple dress
no princess coujd ever have looked
more to the manor born.
Glancing up, she saw the Judge
standing at the window, and called
to him at once to come out into the
garden and, sec how finely the pansy-beds were doing. She met him
half-way down the garden walk, ran
up to him playfully, and linked her
arm through his.
"I am so glad that you broke
away from that stuffy old courtroom long enough to come home and
tako luncheon witfi me to-day, papa!" she said. "I wanted to see you
particularly"       '   '
"I thought you always wanted to
see me particularly, Olive," he remarked, dryly.
"So I do, papa," returned the
young girl. "But I mean I wanted
to ask you about something that I
want to do very much, and I want
to ask your consent to it;" and tho
eyes that had been', looking up into
his fell shyly, and a crimson flush
stole over the dinipled, half-averted
face.
"You must not bring up that subject again about putting your namo
down for a big sum to aid the heathens. You've done enough for them,
if that's what you want," said tho
Judge,  frowning.
"It is not that, papa," said Misi
Olive, quietly.
"Nor shall I encourage you in any
feminine extravagance. In my days
young girls were very plain; they did
not care for diamond-studded lockets,
bangles, and so forth. You must not
ask me to allow you to wear the
diamonds your mother left you. I
Bhall give them to you later, not
now."
"I am two-and-twenty, papa—quite
old enough to wear diamonds; but
you are wrong again as to what is
in my min4."'
"Eh!" said the Judge, putting on
his gold-bowed glasses and peering
at his daughter.
"I Baid you had not yet guessed
what is in my mind; and you pride
yourself, you know, about being
pretty well able to read what is
going on in tho minds of the people
who are brought before you; " and
Bho laughed a littlo low, clear laugh.
"Seeing you aro all at sea and In a
dense fog, I will tell you, papa, that
It Is—about—a—a—young—man."
The ludgc stood quite still and
looked at her for fully a minute.
She bore the scrutiny well.
"Come to the point at once,
Olive," he said, impatiently. "I do
not coniurchand    in  the  ltust   what
you are ge.f.ng at."
"Of course you don't, you dear old
darling!" returned Olive, creeping
closer to him and nestling her brown
head on his shoulder, that he might
not see the blushes that she was
sure would crlrgson her face when she
made her request.
"Well, well," said the judge, "tell
me what you want, Olive; what It is
that you were so anxious to see me
about and gain my consent to?"
She hesitated a moment, then said,
coaxingly, as she slipped both slim
white hands about his arm:
"I am invited to go sailing on Mr.
Pointer's yacht to-morrow, with my
friends Nannie and Jess; and Nannie
wrote me a short note accompanying
the invitation, saying, 'Be sure to
bring an escort with you, Olive, if
your papa will allow you to do so,
for "the more tho merrier" will be
our motto.' Edith and Grace, and,
oh, papa, all of the girls of our set
will be there with escorts—and—and—I
thought if you wouldn't mind, I
would like very much to—to—ask
Roger Glendenning."
The judge held his pretty young
daughter off at arm's-length and
looked into her blushing face, his
own stern and grave, and tho dark
frown deepening on his brow.
"Why did you choose Roger Glendenning from among all your other acquaintances?" he asked, grimly.
"Because he is nicer than any of
the rest," replied Olive, fearlessly;
"and I hope you will try to spare
him for the afternoon, papa. Won't
you?"
"I want J'ou to answer me one
question truthfully, here and now,
Olive," said the judge, huskily. "Are
you interested in this Glendenning?
Do you care for him, I mean?"
• "Oh, papa!" cried the girl, blushing furiously, "how cau you ask nie
^su£h a question? You are perfectly
dreadful!" and she tried to break
away from her father's detaining
grasp and hide her face in her handkerchief; but hj held her fast.
"I want you to tell me, my little
girl," he said. "Arc you interested
In my late private secretary, Roger
Glendenning?"
"Your late secretary, papa?" repeated Olive, catching up the word
at once. "Why, what can you mean
by, that?"
"You answer me one question by
asking another," snid tho judge, impatiently. "You must give mo a
straight-forward reply."
"After you tell me what you mean
by the words, your late secretary,"
murmured Olive, eagerly.
"I mean that Roger Glendenning is
in my employ no longer," said the
judge, slowly. "I discharged him
this forenoon."
In all the long years of Judge
Kneeland's after life he never forgot
the expression that came over his
daughter's face.
"Why, papa?" she asked; and all
the joyousness and sweetness had
died out of her young voice; it sounded l.ke nothing human.
For a moment he hesitated.      Waa
lt best to explain the matter to
Olive? She knew less of such affairs than a little child; he had always guarded her so zealously from
learning aught of the groat, wicked
world outside that might taint her
beautiful white soul; even the daily
papers he excluded from his home.
Ho had beep very careful as to whom
sbe should choose as companions,
The old Judge had a great regard
for the dainty, flaxen-haired, blue-
eyed Miss Nannie. _whi>m hie daughter loved dcarc^r than all the rest'^'of
her friends:' she was so "'-Sweet; • sdWo-
flned, so gentle—quito his idea .. of
what a lovely Innocent young girl
should be. Dark-eyed Jessie, too,
was certainly a girl whose society he
liked to havo Olive cultivate. The
Edith and Grace she referred to were
equally aa charming. Should he tell
Olive of what Glendenning had done?
"It is you who do not answer now,
papa," said Olive, with a great sob
in her voice. "Why did you discharge him?"
"I had good reason to do so," returned her father, gravely. "I traced
to him a great crime—a felony. He
forged my name to a note for a
thousand dollars, and whon accused
of it he could not deny it, but brazened it out with all the effrontery of
a hardened old oflendcr."
The girl broke away from hie detaining hand with a low cry.
"I do not—I will not believe it,
papal" she cried, vehemently. "Thero
must be somo terrible mistake. If
a trumpet-tongued angel cried it out
from heaven I Bhould still refuse to
believo it. Roger Glendenning is too
noble to stoop to a felony. He would
cut off his right hand flrst. There is
something terribly wrong about it."
Judge Kneeland made no attempt
to argue the matter with her; it
would be a more waste of words, ho
told   himself. .Young  ;Jrls  were.,,.a!-
ways*'^a-netr ■a't^aj^o^iiftiL*_-tnj^ it
was in their nature; they were "not
quite responsible for their lack of
judgment where a young and handsome  man was concerned.
"Where is he now, papa?" sobbed
Olive.
"Where every man of his class
Bhould be," observed the judge,
grimly; "behind the bars, my dear."
"Oh, how horrible!" cried Olive
Kneeland, in tho keenest anguish. "I
am going to him at once to offer him
my sympathy and tell him how implicitly I believe in his innocence."
"Hush!" cried the old judge, harshly. "You will do nothing of the
kind. Offer sympathy to a man who
has forged your father's name! I
should say not. I order you, ay—do
you hear me and take in my meaning?—I command you to never think
of that rascal again or mention his
name in my presence. Do you understand me?"
It was the first time in all his life
that Judge Kneeland had ever spoken harshly to the girl he idolized. He
saw her face grow white as death
and her bosom heave convulsively.
But she was too proud, too self-
willed to allow the tears to come to
her angry bluo eyes.
"I fear I am going to have troublo
with Olive over this unfortunate affair," the judge told himself, in
alarm.

IN HISTORIC GLENCOE.
Where  Lord   Strathcona   Lives—Canadian High Commissioner Haa Magnificent Property In Scotland.
Klnlochbeg, which Includes Black-
corrles, in the parish of Llsmore and
Appin and County of Argyll, haa an
area of about 40,000 acres. The small
shieling known as Mealanru&ch (Mea'l
nan Ruadhag), of triangular shape,
which lies ln the middle of the forest,
forms part of Ballachullsh estate, but
Is rented by Lord Strathcona and
Mount Royal, tho proprietor of Kin-
lochbeg.
Twenty  Mprk Land.
Lord Strathcona's estate forms the
bu—: of what was ln the seventeenth
century known as the Twenty Merk
land of Glencoan, in the old Lordship
of Lorn, which formed the subject of
a grant by James Earl of Perth to
John Stewart of Ardsheal in 1685, and
was then held in feu of the Earl of
Argyll. In 1685 Stewart ol Ardsheal
subfeued part of lt to Macdonald ot
Achtrlachtan, and In 1693 another
part to Macdonald of Gleneoe, and he
also seems to have feued other parts.
In 1701 he sold the remainder to Robert Stewart of Appin. Subsequently
the bulk of the property feued to Macdonald of Achtrlachtan was acquired
by the proprietor of the estate of Appin, and the proprietor of that state
also acquired from the Duke of Argyll
the superiority of the old Twenty Merk
land.
Twenty Milss.
Lord Strathcona acquired the lands
which were feued out in 1693 to Macdonald of Glenooe and also parts of
the Twenty Merk land of Glencoan
which formed part ot Appin estate,
Including the superiority, so that
Lord Strathcona holds 'the whole property of the Crown. His territory
stretches twenty miles from east to
west; from north to south the
breadth varies from two to six miles.
The large mansion erected toy Lord
Btrathcona waa designed by Sir Rowland Anderson, and Is understood to
have cost nearly £50,000, including the
laying out of the grounds. It ls lighted
by electricity and built on the old and
historical property of Gleneoe, overlooking Loch Leven, with Loch Llnnhe
ln the distance, and the Morven and
Klngatrloch hills In the background.
Mad. Thr.e Lakes.
Lord Strathcona formed three lakes
near the house, and has made a special
feature of autumn flowering shrubs
and plants, as well as autumn flowers,
vegetables and fruit. There ls also a
nursery of trees from which extenMve
planting ls made every year. The landing pier for yachts Is within a few
hundred yards of the house. There are
two shooting boxes, one at Coallsnacoan
further up Loch Leven, and another lu
the middle of the Blackcorries Moor.
Blackcorrles was afforested early In
last century, but Klnlochbeg, Coallsnacoan and Strone were cleared comparatively recently, and only after It was
found absolutely unprofitable to graze
sheep.
Land  Lias High.
The ground li high lying, Gleneoe being one of tlio moat mountainous districts ln the west. On the south side
Kldean nam Blan (3,756 feet) ls thn
highest; on the north Aonach Eagach
(3,168 feet), both favorite ascents
among mountaineers. An outstanding
member of the western group Is Sgor
an Olche, the Pap of Gleneoe, Which
lies behind Gleneoe house and from the
top of which there ls a most wonderful
view. Gleneoe ls entered from the west
at Bridge of Coe, the village of Car-
nooh on the left bank of the river was
the chief clachan of the Macdonalds.
The massacre took place on 13th Feb.,
1692. "Tho Devil's Staircase" is a rough
track across the forest from the Coe
At AlKnafeadh to the head of Loch
Leven. The Coe ia the Cona of Osslan,
on whoso banks, according to tradition, thb poet was born. Osslan's Cave
la on the south side of the glen on a
spur of BIdean nam Blan.
LACE BARK TREES.
The Beautiful and Serviceable Dreaa
Materials Ther Yield.
There are ln all about balf a dozen
lace bark trees ln the world, so called
because tbe Inner bark yields a natural
lace In ready made sheet form, which
can be made up in serviceable articles
of apparel. Only four of these curloue
species of trees are of much practical
value. Tourists who have stopped at
Hawaii or Samoa may recall the lace
bark clothing of the natives—clothing
of a neat brown color when new, of remarkable strength and of a fragrant
odor, like freshly cured tobacco lenf.
The native tapa cloth, ob It Is called.
Is made from tbe bark of the Bruso-
netla papirlfera, but It is not usually
Included among the real lace bark
trees. In Its natural state the real lace
bark Ir of a delicate cream white tint.
It is probably a kind of fibrous pith.
Wben the outer bark Is removed lt can
be unfolded and unwound iu one seamless piece, having a surface of a little

Oo Not Cr.lvnl  the  Chicks.
Do not put too many chicks In a
brooder. Between CO and 100 will do,
but 50 ls best. Too much or too little
heat, soft and sour food and not enough
exercise are the causes of bowel trouble. At present the condition of things
Is such that we must depend to raise

he avoided.—Ohio Farmer.
Washing Milk Utensils.

There Is a kind of stall known as tbe
model stall. Some people call It
Honrd's model stall, as Governor
Hourd, through Honrd's Dairyman, has
advocated this stall long and persistently. Below is given a cut of this
stall, redrawn from King's Physics of
Agriculture, with slight modlflcntlons.
Tbe manger ln which the cow ls fed
ensilage aud grain ls on a level with
the platform the cow stands upon. The
feeding alley Is ln front, and the cow Is
fed her grnln through the opening from
the feeding alley. To prevent cows
renchlng through this opening Into the
feeding alley a door bung upon hinges
ls used to close tbe opening. This ls
swung up agnlnst the hay manger
when the ensilage and grain are being
fed. Two feet above this manger ls
the bottom of the hay manger. This
bottom ls made out of eight inch or ten
inch plank and Is boarded up on the
alley side. The frout part of tbe hay
manger, or that part toward the cow,
is made of slats, the top of whlcb projects toward the cow at an ongle of
about forty-five degrees. She eats the
hay through these slats.
It will be noticed that when the cow
Is eating the grain or ensilage out of
MODE- COW STALL.
the lower manger she Is just as far
ahead as she can possibly get. When
she raises her head to eat hay the buy
manger forces her back a step. Now,
the philosophy of the stall ls this:
When she Is eating grain or ensilage
out of the lower manger the attendant
notices where she stands with her hind
feet, and he places a 2 by 4 edgewise
across the stall just ln front of her
bind feet. It must be understood tbat
the ensilage end grain manger is only
four to six inches high ou the side
toward the cow. Nov/, the space between this manger aud this 2 by 4 In
front of the cow's hind feet ls filled
with straw for bedding. It gradually
becomes packed In there so that the
cow has a mattress of straw four
Inches deep to He upon. This ls her
bed. Wben sbe .itands up she cannot
get into lt with ber hind feet to soil
it. The manger prevents her from getting ahead, so that the droppings will
not at any time fall ln this bed; consequently It ls alwuys clean.
When tbe cow lies down she must lie
upon this bed or else lie right over the
edge of the 2 by 4, which Is so uncomfortable that she soon learns to He far
enough forward to lie comfortably on
the bed. Tbe construction of the bed,
then, compels the cow to keep herself
clean. I have put Into my barn fifty-
two of these stalls. They are giving
entire satisfaction. The cows can ba
tied with a halter to tbe plank which
forms the bottom of the hay manger

A Storm Abort the Clouds.
Professor John Wise, the eminent
aeronaut, who lost his life In making
a balloon ascension on Sept. 28, 1870,
gave the following description of a
thunderstorm which he once viewed
from the "top side:" "The view of a
stormeloud from nbove is one of tbe
most Interesting sights ever beheld by
mortal man. A storm viewed from
above the clouds has tbe appearance
of ebullition. The upper surface of the
sloud is bulged upward and outward
and has the resemblance of a vast sea
of boiling, upheaving snow. Immediately above the stormeloud the air Is
not so cold as lt Is In tbe clearer atmosphere above or ln the cloud Itself.
The falling of the rain can be distinctly heard, making a noise like a waterfall over a precipice. The thunder
heard above a stormeloud ls not loud,
and the flashes of lightning appear like
streaks of Intensely white light on tha
surface of the erav colored vapor."

■ome Strange Customs.
A very Interesting account la given
of the strange customs of the Bedouins of the Slnal peninsula ln Lord
Cromer's report on Egypt and the Sudan. If a man kills another ln time of
peace the relatives of the murdered
man, beginning from thg father to the
fifth generation, have .jktx rteh£ to re-
venge or pardon against the receipt of
"blood money." This1 latter is fixed, at
forty-one camels. -.If the murdered
man was of the same tribe as the murderer the latter or his near relatives
have to give a girl In marriage to one
of the victim's relatives without receiving the usual dowry. When she
gives birth to a child she ls free to go
back If she chooses. In tbo latter caso
th6 marriage must be renewed and tho
usual dowry paid. Five camels may

THE MODERN TORPEDO.
Ita Wonderful Mechanism and How
lt Is Operated.
The principle of the torpedo Is the
placing of a very large charge of high
explosive In a steel case fairly alive
with mechanism and so ingenious that
the missile flred from a tube with a
small charge of cordite or gunpowder
will automatically direct Itself to a
given target and there explode. The
Whitehead torpedo of today Is a steel
cigar or automatic porpoise shaped
weapon or projectile from twelve to
seventeen feet lorg aud eighteen inches ln diameter at Its widest. When
ready for firing even a small one will
weigh over half a ton. They are delivered ln five sections, which contain upward of 2,000 pieces of machinery.
The wet gun cotton In the "war
head" ls Inserted ln slabs, each wltb a
bole ln Its center to receive the core of
dry gun cotton directly connected with
the detonating primer, whlcb contains
fulminate of mercury and a percussion
cap. In frpnt of the primer Is screwed
the water "nose"—a very sensitive
nose—which operates automatically
when the weapon strikes and sets off
tbe whole charge.
Behind the war head comes the chamber containing the compressed air that
drives this singular projectile through
tbe water. Into this chamber Is pumped
the air at a pressure of 1,509 pounds
to the square Inch. And this escaping
through the valve leading to the little
engines provides the motive power.
Next comes the mechanism which automatically regulates the depth of the
torpedo during its run. This Ingenious
apparatus has been kept a great secret
and sold In turn to the various nations
of the world. Not for from tho tall of
the torpedo are placed tbe driving engines.
There ls also a controlling valve,
which can be arranged so as to close
automatically after the weapon has run
a certain distance, thus obviating a
futile explosion ln the event of the torpedo missing Its target.
At the end of the tail comes the
rudder, which keeps the torpedo
straight But the most remarkable
piece of mechanism ls tbe gyroscope,
like a child's top. It ls set automatically by the release of a spring a moment or two after the torpedo ls shot
from Its tube. It ls the duty of this
little device to correct the torpedo's
course If lt deviates in the slightest
degree from Its Instructions.
France leads the world with her torr
pedo flotillas. Great Britain possesses
about 110 torpedo boats of the flrst
class, 114 "destroyers," 110 second class
boats and 20 submarines built or building. Every nation Is giving great atto»v-
tion to Ita torpedo boats. Even China
has 44 of the first class and 00 second

Condemned to Slavery.
Two hundred years ago, wben men
ana women were condemned to death
for trivial offenses, It was the custom
In Scotland to commute the death sentence Into perpetual servitude to sped-
lied masters. In other words, the condemned person became a slave.. It
was further ordained that he should
wear a metal collar round his neck recording his sentence and punishment
The Society of Scottish Antiquaries
owns one of these collars, fished out
ot the Forth above Alloa. It ls brass,
wltb this inscription: "Alexander Stewart, fouud guilty of death for theft at
Perth, 5th December, 1701, and gifted
by the Justiciars as a perpetual serv.
ant to Sir John Aresken of Alva." •

WHY GIRLS ARE PALE-
They  Need the  Rich  Red  Blood Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills Actually Make.
Three years ago Miss Ellen Roberts
who holds the position of saleslady ln
one of the leading stores In Halifax,
N. S.„ was a pale delicate looking
young woman, who then lived at home
with her parents at Amherst, N. S.
She complained of general weakness
and loss of appetite. Her blood was
thin and watery and she grew thinner
day by day until she looked almost a
shadow. Her cheeks were sunken,
all trace of color had left her face
and her friends feared she was going
Into a decline. '. had no energy,"
says Miss Roberts, "and suffered so
much from headaches and dizziness
end other symptoms of anaemia that
I fet I did not care whether I lived
or died. "One day, however, when
reading our local paper I read a testimonial given by' a young girl ln favor
of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and .as
her symptoms were almost Identical
with my own I determined to try this
medicine. Before I had used the second box I begun to-'flnd benefit, and
I continued taking the pills until I
had used seven or eight boxes, by
which time I was funy restored to
health." To-day Miss Roberts looks
as if she had never been ill ln her
life, and'she has no. hesitation in saying she owes her present energy and
health to Dr. Williams\Pink Pills.

sate Use of Lime.
Dr. Hopkins tells the farmers of his
state (Illinois) that he never will recommend the use of any material on
laud that would Injure it ln the long
run. He suggests only natural . mo>
terlals. The source of the lime now
tn the soil ls limestone. The tendency
of burnt lime—caustic lime—ls to burn
the soil. Ground limestone will correct
acidity just as effectively as caustlo
lime lf used lu sufficient quantity. It
ls the cheapest form of lime for this
purpose. It ls absolutely harmless,
and It does the work of destroying
acidity.
The ground limestone cannot stimulate nor do any Injury. On poor land
lt would not secure as much clover unaided as does caustic lime; but It would
do all that may be required of lt safely
—It corrects the acidity and It feeds
the clover directly when that ls required. A ton of ground limestone la
the equivalent of more than half a ton
of caustic lime—"ground lime"—ln

Aa African Sea Serpent Story.
Here Is a sea serpent story from one
of the great fresh water lakes of central Africa. The Globe Trotter of Nairobi, British East A'rica, tells It: "Ac-
cording to natives on tho shore and
Islands of Lake Victoria the real slmon
pure water python ls a reality. Officers
on board the Sibyl and the Winifred
bave time and again been unable to
account for the unrest shown at times
ln the moot tranquil waters. Sir Clement Hill ln crossing the lake some
years ago ln a launch with one Mac-
gregor, the engineer, saw this monster
and described It as having a head resembling the hippopotamus, only three
times broader, but much more flat and
wedge shaped. The opinion of the natives regarding its length, etc., differs
very much, but all agree that the reptile Is amphibious and declare they
have seen forty feet or more lying dormant on the bank, while the supposed
tall, sixty or seventy feet from shore,
created a commotion ln the water resembling the wash of au ocean
steamer."

Woman's
Realm.
Of all the fashionable needlework fads
which havo oomo and gone, nothing
more beautiful and dnrublo thnn Hedebo
uoedlepoint hus ever been produced.
The work is so very haudsome, and
iu sueh^entirely good taste, that like the
liner classes of drawn work and satin
stitch embroideries, it is certain to remain forever in good form, even when
the rage for it has beeu swept away to
make room for some new fad,
Hedebo needlepoint iB the peasant
national work of Denmark, and it is as
far superior to other forms of embroidery
and fancy stitches that have come to us
from European countries as point lace is
to some cheap imltatiou. Its variety is
wonderful, and therefore its charm is
enduring. It is a combination of lace
with embroidery stitches, and is done
with stroug flax thread upon Bpecial
qualities of linen, so that pieces of
Hedebo needlepoint, unless very roughly handled, will last forever.
It is impossible for even the best
informed and most astute authority to
predict what will be the reigning vogue
in the fall and winter of 1906-7, for
there will be no reigning vogne, bnt a
multiplicity of styles in all classes of
garments, says Dry Goods. One of the
best indications of tbe probable style
trend is fonnd in the showing of tell
materials. A large proportion of the
dress fabrics of all classes that are on
the retail counter is in light weight,
soft, clinging stuffs. Only clinging
garments with soft, graceful folds and
abundant ornamentation, oan give to
toilettes of these materials the correct
expression. Silks, velvets, broadcloths,
all kinds of high class good* for exclusive trade, continue to exhibit the same
or an increased degree of softness.
There ia a revulsion against the circular skirt and in favor of the restored
plaited skirt. The pony coat, which
for a while was almost tabooed, has reappeared, with a modified expression, in
the fall tailor-made suit. The basque
coat and the smart pelerine have stepped to the front.. The princess style has
lost a pace, according to some authorities, and tho Empire idea is again
triumphant.
Although all shades of yellow are so
fashionable, one need not wear them
unless one pleases These charming
tints of bronze and brown as well as
blue are in favor, .while one of the smart
colors of the season is puce, that rich
shade of rod which toues into wine
color, and which was quito the most
fashiouablo hue of the day just oue
hundred years ago.
We a trifle better off than onr ancestors nf that i-eriod. for wo have several
shades ot pnee color from whioh to make
a choice, whilo they probably had but
one.
Iu considering the question of out mnn
colors, however, fashion decrees that all
black is to bu very chic indeed.
There will be, too, more contrast in
the colors used iu gowns thun we have
hud for two seasons or more. This is
especially noticeable iu the bright-tiuted
Directoire dinner coats with gowns of
other colors.
The flrst impression ou glancing over
an exhibition of early fall modols is that
thero is nothing new, bnt closer inspection reveals tho fact that ench number
bears tho label of a uew season's vintage.
The materials, to begin with, nre mostly
iu more or less mannish suiting effects,
but can uot be confounded with those in
the spring models. The high-waist
skirt is represented, bnt with au extension above the waist that is narrow,
moro iu the nature of a belt, which robs
it of its title of corsetlot. The return of
the long sleeve is a necessity With tho
expression of simplicity the chic tailored
walking suit must exhibit. In the
hip-lougth, close fitting coat, the longer
loose cont, tho Prince Chap and the
pony coat, the long sleeve obtains, those
belougiug more or less distinctly to the
severe typo of tailor-made. Tho blouse
coat, with or without a basque or
pepluui, is of moro frivolous expression
und seou accompanied by tho elbow
sleeve.

WASTING   BRAIN
AND NERVE FORCE
And Undermining Health by Useless Worry-
New Vitality Obtained by Using
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food.
Brain and nerve force Is squandered
in a way which would be utterly condemned in the use of money. And
of what value Is money compared
■with health.
By useless fretting and worry, by
■overwork, and by neglecting to take
proper nourishment, rest and sleep,
strength and vitality aro frittered
away and no reserve force Is left to
withstand the attack of disease.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is valued
because it actually increases the amount of nerve force in the body, over-
-comes the symptoms arising from exhausted nerves, and gives that
^strength and confidence in mind and
*ody which ls necessary to success In
Wfe.
Nervous headache, brain fag, Inability to concentrate the mind, loss of
sleep, irritibility, nervousness and despondency are among the indications
of exhausted nerve force. These are
the warnings which suggest the necessity of such help as is best supplied by Dr. Chase's Nerve Cure.
Mrs. J. S. Tardlff, Mariapolis, Mau.,
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 goiug into,
consumption and for nearly thrC.
years my bowels Were so loose and
watery that I w.as kept continually
weak and run doVn. In spite of the
many remedies 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 keep-1
ing up this treatment for a time I got
so strong and well that I did my own
housework and sometimes worked ln
the fields without feeling any the
worse for lt. It is a! pleasure as well
as a duty for me to recommend Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food.

successful, test this great food cure,

Management   of   Sitting
Their Feed and Care.
Hatching eggs under heus is a much
Simpler matter than artificial Incubation, writes J. D. Mason In Reliable
Poultry Journal. In some experiments
We made In hatching out White Leghorn eggs under mongrel hens we got
the best results from hens fed on corn
while sitting,-, corn being the greatest
iheat producing food.
Hens should not have eggs put-under
them until they have remained on the
tiest for a day or so. If they do not
leave the nest for the roost at night It
Is safe torput eggs under them. Our
hens', which were set in the hejhouses,
did not dd. so well as those set where
they were undisturbed by the laying
hens. If It is necessary to move the
hen she will generally accept the new
nest provided tbo change is made at
■night. Dark nests give the best, re-
■ntflts, and they should be well filled
■with straw or dried grass.
From twelve to fifteen eggs are put
under a hen, depending on the else of
the hen. .In cold weather lt'ls best to
put the fewer number of eggs, while
Jate ln the spring as many as seventeen
•can be pnt under ner. It_is just as
necessary to select the eggs and use
only welt; shaped eggs for Sitting under
hens as jfor the artificial method of
hatching.* In warm weather, when the
chicks are liable to dry in the shell, lt
ts a great help1 ^o thoroughly sprinkle
the egg*. There need be no fear of
-hilling,'for the heat of the hen will
quietly bring them back to the proper
temperature. If two or more hens are.

give one .ojf'»t\i<j -t>e*¥ .both lots of chick-
«us to mother and reset the other.

An Old Cutler's Adviee to Men Who
Use a Hii-or,
"Whenever I hone a razor," said an
pld English cutler, "I always give some
advice with it, free, gratis, and I take
great satisfaction in knowing that I
have made shaving easier and more
comfortable for more than 10,000 men.
Almost every barber will tell you how to
strop a razor, but it takes a cutler to
tell you how. to care for your strop and
how to get.the best, work out of your
blade.      '*", '
"A swing strop, canvass onone side
and horse hide on the other, is the best.
Always hold it taut and draw the razor
lightly, but swiftly, from heel to point.
If you let the strop sag you will put
a round edge on your blade. Don't forget to cover your strop or put It away
in a drawer after using. If it hangs
In a bathroom near a window the dust
and grime get Into It and soon take
the edge from your ra_or. Whether
you keep the strop covered or whether
you don't, rub your open hand over the
two surfaces to free It from dust.
"But what I consider my most valuable adyice Is how to do away with
sbavlug paper entirely and at the same
time Improve the cutting quality of the
razor's edge. Nine men out of ten
shave .themselves In a room where
there Is running hot water.' Now, the
way to get a most gratifying-result is
this: Lather thickly and well and let It
remain on,tin: face half a minute before you "begin to shave. If you have
time waijli It oft, for with (t will come
the grit anS dirt 'that you have loosened up in the pores of the skin, and then
apply'a se-O-d'coat. It will be as soft,
smooth and.cjean as new velvet.
•• ''Now turn on (he hot water faucet
and let It Tun. Hold the razor under
the stream until It ls heated. Then
take a slanting, or diagonal, stroke, like
a farmer does with a scythe, not a
square pull, and you will be amazed to
find bow beautifully and easily the hot
blade cuts the beard.-.
"When It.is filled with lather hold lt
under the runuing hot water Instead of
using shaving paper. This will wash
off tho lather and at.the same-time
heat the blade again. Don't be afraid
of taking out the temper. That would
be impossible If you put the razor in a
kettle and boiled it;. Try the hot blade
and you'll never shave with the cold
steel again."'

Tobacco contains prussic acid, ammonia, carbonic oxide and,nlcotlne.   '
Tobacco contains stronger poisons

The London Dally Mall has been pub- j
Hshlng some true stories of missionary !
adventure.  Here is one from central In- !
dla:  It was dark, and the windy dark- j
ness was full of the mysterious noises i
of the Jungle.    Two men were hudd ed '
silently  on  a  platform   built  ir.    the
boughs of a tree on the edge of the Jun-
g!?.   Below them the undergrowth was
black and still, for the mion had not
y,t risen.  Suddenly there was a movement as though a portion gf Its blackness had detached Itselt from the rest
and begun to creep away.   Just at that
moment the moon rose and revealeu to
tho   eyes  pf  Mr.   S.   D.   Price,  and   his
shikari'this  lithe  b.dy   ill' panth.-r
slinking through the undergrowth.     A
shot   rang  out,   and,   with  a  yep   of
pain,   the  panther  disappeared  ln  tha
bushes.
With ths sunrise, the missionary-
hunter and his shikari descended from
their platform, and began to examine
the panther's trail. The effect of the
shot was shown'by the patches of biood
on the ground, which led them through
a couple of hundred yards of tinck
Jungle. After crawling on hands and
knees under the brushwood they reached a narrow nullah. A little beyond
this they came upon the wounded panther scaling a tree. Mr. Price flred,
but the range was too long, and the
shot proved futile. The disturbance
had the result, however, of startling the
animal Into falling from the tree to the
ground, when it once more recommenced Its flight.
The missionary and His shikari followed quickly on its track. It led thom
finally to a deep and thickly-wooded
nullah, which had taken the form of a
horse-shoe. The panther entered the
nullah at the centre of the bend and
turned along the left arm, growling angrily as lt covered the ground In heavy
strides. Its pursuers kept about twenty
yards from the nullah and skirted It
along the right until the top of the bend
was reached. -Here a halt was made
while Mr. Price approached the nullah,
the panther growling away at the other
end about two bundf-d yards distant.
Then all 'w&s still. The animal seemed to have vanished. Suddenly it sprang
out right.under Mr. Price's feet, having
douhled • back ■ along the watercourse
without making the slightest noise. Mr.
Price'-red rapidly aud stepped back to
avoid the animal's spring, and ln so doing fell Into the nullah. The next moment the panther was on him, and had
fixed his teeth in his arm.
Suddenly Mr. Price's little fox-terrier,
Toby, flew at the panther and fixed Itself on Its back, tearing hard at Its
neck. This diversion caused the panther to leave the man and attack th*
dog, and Mr. Price was able to stagger up and out of the nullah and run
to where the native trackers were cowering. There he fainted, and was carried back to his bungalow bleeding
from fourteen wounds.

little prince came running In, crying:
"Oh, do come In; come In at once. Nobody is here."
The visitor hesitated, and then said

Two Methods rs Shown tn Case of a
' Man and  Woman. ■
Buying a cup of tea may be a tragedy or a comedy. Much depends on the
sex of the buyer. This Is the way a
man buys It. He slides sheepishly Into
the shop, takes the seat in the draught
of the door that everybody else has
avoided, and says to the waitress, with
a diffident smile:
"Oh, would you bring me a cup of
tea?"
The waitress, who returns the smile,
or does not return lt, according to the
rule of the establishment In regard to
tipping, brings him his tea, slams tt
down, scribbles out a check, and sails
away.
The man tastes the tea, flnds that it
Is bitter from long brewing, slips out
of his seat, pays the bill, and hurries
away from the shop.
Now let us see how a woman buys a
oup of tea.
She marches ln with a little boy on
ene side of her and a llttle girl on the
other.
"I want a table for three," she says,
ln the manner of one about to order a
dinner at ten guineas a head.
"Yes, madam," replies the meek attendant. "Will you kindly step thi*
way?"
'"Mummy," says the little boy, when
at last the party ls seated and the at
tendant  ls  waiting  to  take   the  tw
penny  order,  "Mummy,  why  has th
lady got a turned-up n"se?"
"Want a scone," complains the little
girl.
"A pot of tea for one," orders "mummy," "and would you mind bringing an
extra cup, so that my little girl can
have some milk?"
"One tea and one milk?" asks the attendant.
"No, thank you I thought I gave
my order quite distinctly. I want a
pot of tea for one and an extra cup.
That's all."
"Yes, madam," says the meek attendant, and drags herself away with the
Urm Intention of becoming an actress,
let the stage be what lt may.
"Just one moment," says "mummy,"
when the tea Is brought. "I should like
to make sure that this is not too strong.
Yes, it ls much too strong. Will you
let me have a pitcher of hot, water,
please? And I don't think you have
brought quite, enough milk." Half an
hour later she marches proudly from
the shop, having paid exactly the same
sum for these privileges as the wretched man who could no*, swallow a

The House committee's report' stated
that the work of the department was
Increasing. The governors were probably aware that it ha_""*_reen discovered
that, by making certain tests of the
blood, the patients' power of resistance
against the disease of consumption
could be measured.
These tests were,, fit course, made
before the patients contracted the disease. If their power of resistance was
found to be low, a means .baot been discovered of Increasing that ptowar,
which would undoubtedly eventually
be the means by which that.drea- disease might be stamped out of, this
country.
Lupus was caused by the same microbe. In the case of lupus, the Wacillus
attacked the skin, and In the <v_e of
consumption lt attacked the luqjgg. It
was a fact that the lupus patients had
resisted all treatment by the Flnsen
lamp, having had as many as _-0 sittings without effect, and in testing th*
blood of all these patients, the resistance was found to be so 'low that the
patient undoubtedly got Infected as fast
as he got cured by the light. '

Marriage ls an Institution highly con-
ducive to the health of both husband
and wife, says American Medicine.
Statistics prove that among married
men over twenty years of age and women over forty the mortality rate la
far less .than among those who remain
single. Among the widowed and divorced the mortality ls exceptionally
great. Suicides among the unmarried
nre much more numerous than among
the, married. The matrimonial state
promotes temperance ln every form.
Furthermore, the probable duration of
life of a married man of thirty exceeds
that of bis unmarried brother by five
years, and the wife may expect to live
one year longer than * single woman
ef the same age.

All day long the pitiless heat beat
down on the pavements, and at night
When Mather came home to his little
room on the second floor he found It a
Veritable oven. Sleep ln that place was
Out of the question. Ho turned out tbe
single gas Jet and went down to tho
Btreet. On the stoop were noisy, chattering groups, wolfing vainly for a
breeze from the water. There waa
much banter between the occupants of
neighboring stoops and much high
pitched laughter. The steps of his own
lodging house, like the rest, bore Its
quota, but he felt no Inclination to Join
them. Instead he walked out to tbe
aveuue and turned aimlessly downtown.
He had proceeded but a short distance when the strident notes of a cornet and trombone aud the pulsating
boom of a bass drum fell on his ears.
Above the din sounded shrill voices,
quavering a hymn. Ho had never yet
attended a street corner service of the
Salvation Army, and It struck him that
this would be an excellent opportunity
to do so. He quickened his steps and
soon came upon them, men and women
alike kneeling ou the dirty pavementa
while a raucous voiced lieutenant of.
fered a prayer. A flaring gasoline
torch on a nearby fruit stand lighted
the scene uncannily and threw Into
flickering relief the faces of varied
types crowded about the kneeling figures.
Mather was country born and bred.
Tears of life on the farm had given
him a big frame and a pair of shoulders that many an athlete might have
envied. It was an easy matter for him
to elbow his way through the crowd to
the Inner edge of the circle, where he
stood quietly watching the litt!_i drama
before him with mild curiosity and
even milder amusement.
The prayer finished, the little band
arose, and the men replaced their caps.
The lieutenant announced a hymn, the
cornet squealed, the trombone brayed,
the drum boomed valiantly, and tbe
quavering voices rose onco more on the
hot night air.
At the conclusion of the hymn tbe
lieutenant announced that they would
"DON'T HUBT BIM,  P-EASB don't,"  hub.
BEClOED.
listen to a few words from Sister Ruth.
A slight, girlish figure stepped to tbe
center .of the circle from somewhere In
the shadow. The light of the gasoline
torch fell full upon ber face—a face of
wonderful purity and sweetness. There
was a beauty in the level brows, the
.long.dark lashes, of the eyes and the
full, red lips that the bonnet 'of tiie
corps could not hide, and there was.a
supple grace of figure that the plain
blue dress did not wholly conceal. i
She began fo speak ln a voice full of
earnest appeal. What she was saying
Mather did not know, for he paid'no
heed to her words. He was not an lib- '■
pressionable young man—indeed, by his
friends he was adjudged Unusually
bard headed and abundantly possessed
of that quality generally termed "horse
sense." But there was something that
appealed to him strongly In that face
beneath the regulation poke bonn'it.
He did not take bis eyes from h.jr
while she was speaking, and when she
• had finished and stepped back 'I-HTthe
shadow he was aware of a strange
feeling, half of sadness, half of buoy-!
• ancy. He elbowed his way put and
walked homeward, strangely perturbed
and strangely eluted.
The following uight and evory night
after foot Mather attended the street
coruer meetings. If Sister Iluth spoke
or prayed or sang lid wus supremely
hauo.v: lf others filled her place he *. as
aware of a feeling of disappointment
Being unskilled ln the analysis of emotion, he did not recognize the trend of
lt all. He only knew that he wanted to
be near her, to see her face, to listen
to her voice.
One night as the women of the corps
were passing tbe tambourines for the
collection he. beheld Sister Ruth coming ln his direction through the crowd.
Sbe was smiling and nodding gratefully as the nickels and dimes fell jingling
Into the tambourine. Standing beside
Mather were three young fellows, evidently the worse for liquor. As Sister
Ruth approached them ono of the three
lifted his foot and kicked the tambourine smartly.
"Little h-hlgber, Gertla I c'n kick
higher 'n th-that," he hiccoughed familiarly.
Mather's hand fell on the fellow's
coat collar with a grip of iron.
"Apologize for that! Hear me? Apol-
ognlzel" he said ln a voice shaking
with anger.
"Eh? Wbat?" said the other. He
looked up at Mather. Mather towered
inches above him. There was, moreover, something very sinister ln his
eyes.
"I 'oologlxed," began th* captive hastily.
Mather felt a light touch on his arm.
He turned to find Sister Ruth standing
beside him.
"Don't hurt blm, please don't," sh*
begged.
Mather smiled grimly.
"It's just as you say," said be. "I'll
kill him lf you say so."
"Let him go, please," she said, and
Mather pushed the man away.
"Thank you," she said. Her eyes
met his squarely; sbe blushed and hesitated a moment. "Thank you," sbe
said again and was gone. That night
Mather walked home on air.
•       »••••*
Mather climbed the dingy stairs to
the llttle hall at the corps barracks.
It was Sunday evening.   Outside the
, ram was falling dismally and the gut-
j ters ran rivers of mud.   He sat down
| quite alone on one of the rear settees.
I A handful of people nearer the platform were the only others in the bare,
' cheerless place.
i There were hymns and prayers and
testimony quite as usual, and during It
all Mather sat back ln the shadows
feasting his eyes on the outlines of a
1 pretty face beneath a poke bonnet at
one side of the platform.
Presently during the singing of a
hymn Mather saw her coming down
the aisle toward him, and his heart
I stood still.    She stopped beside blm,
and her face flushed. . ,   ,
"Were you looking for—for salvation?" Bhe faltered.
"No," said he quietly, "I was look-
lug for—you."
She looked a trifle frightened. He
saw the color suddenly leave her
cheeks. .-    .
"Please sit down for a minute," he
begged.   She hesitated, then reluctantly complied.   The hymn still Went on
stridently.   Mather looked thoughtfully
. at the unshaded gas jets above the
I platform for a time.
"I  need  you  more than tbe army
does," he said at length.   "I -want you
| to leave It."
"Oh!"   she  gasped,   drawing   away
from him.
I    "I realize you know nothing about
me," he went on hurriedly.   'Tm foreman ln a machine shop.   I mike good
! wages.   So far I've lived a life I'm not
ashamed of.   But I want you to satisfy
yourself as to the truth of all this, of
course."
She looked at him curiously.
"What do you know of me?" she
asked.
"That I love you," said he stoutly.
"Is that enough?"
"Yes, that's enough," he declared.
She turned away from him for a moment.   When be saw he? face again
her eyes were filled with tears.
"This work is very dear to me," she
said.
He was silent.
"But of all men you are tbe one 1
should trust."
."And love?" be asked breathlessly.
'There waB a long pause.
"And love," she said very softly.
They were starting the last verse of
tbe hymn, but Mather heard nothing
of lt.   The bare, bleak room had suddenly become a'glorious paradise. Tbe
yellow gas jets were glittering stars

BOY'S GREAT JOURNEY.
Travsl* 10,000 Mil** Without a Ticket
to See Canada.
Stanley Condor, a 12-year-old boy, of
Seacombe. was taken before the stipendiary magistrate at Liverpool on the
21st May of this year, charged with
traveling across the Atlantic without a
ticket. His entire journey as a stowaway and train-jumper covered quite
10,000 miles.    .
This ls the climax of a remarkable,
series of free Journeys accomplished by
the lad during the last twelve months.
His flrst ride of this kind was under
the guard's van of an express '.rain
running to Derby. On eleven other
occasions he has run away from home
and traveled free to Preston, Manchester and Bradford. He ls said to be a
bright scholar, and ls a quiet, unimpressive looking lad.
Two months ngo his parents were
quietly conferring with the authorities
about him. He was not vicious, but
something had to be done to correct his
roaming habit. It was decided to apprentice him to a Canadian farmer.
Stanley, unaware of this plan, decided
to see Canada for himself.
Ho stowed himself on a Dominion
liner, where he was found when the
vessel was two days at sea, ibut, on arrival at Halifax, he gave the authorities
the slip, and by a series of train-jumping exploits went as far west as Winnipeg, some 1,500 miles inland.
There he turned about and started
homeward, aiming first for New York.
Before leaving Winnipeg ihe earned two
dollars, with which he bought food.
He caught many rides on trains, but
bad to walk 150 miles of the distance.
When h* arrived at New York th*
boy was worn out, and his clothes
were torn and ragged. A policeman who
found him roaming at night, took nim
to the sta-lon, where he was provided
with spare clothes and food.
The next day, when he was supposed
to be sleeping, the young adventurer
escaped from the room in which he had
been detained, and made his way t*
the quay. During the night he stole on
board a White Star liner, and concealed himself until the vessel was out at
sea, when he walked Into the forecastle
to the amazement of th* crew.
He was taken from the ves«el to th*
Liverpool police station. The magistrate
remanded him to ihe workhouse for
seven days, and ln the meantime the
momentous question, what is to _e done
with him, will be considered. In the
prisoners' box he looked worn, and said
lf they would let him oft he would try
not to go traveling any more.
His parents were In tears, and the
greeting between them and their wayward child was pathetic.

HOT AND COLD WATER.'
Bow to Bae These Remedies to the
'■_,! Ben Ad.nntaate.
■ Hot or cold water Is excellent as an
application for Inflammation, congestion's or abrasions, but how many people know which to apply In particular
cases while awaiting the arrival of
'medical relief? Not many, and the mistakes made In some Instances are ludicrous.
*■■• Tako the barber, for example, who
has cut his patron's face. He generally
washes the face with a towel soaked
in warm water, often pressing lt right
Into the Injury, and then wonders why
the blood flows from the cut so freely.
In ninety-nine cases out of a hundred
lf he had used cold water, and the
colder the better, the blood woultl
have ceased to flow from the Injury altogether, as the cold would have a tendency to contract the openings In the
torn blood vessels. In all cases of sucb
cuts or abrasions very cold water will
at least reduce the amount of bleeding
lf lt doesn't stop lt altogether, and yet,
singularly enough, boiling water will
have the same effect
Water below the boiling point Increases the flow, but above that degree decreases It In surface Inflammations or congestions cold water ought
to be nsed, while lf the condition ls situated below the surface hot water is
necessary as an application because II
draws the blood toward tbe surface
•nd thus stimulates the circulation
through the part where It is most
needed.
In cases of abscesses or pimples
with pus forming ln them, but whlcb
have not yet come to a head, the secretion of pus can be rapidly Increased
and the duration of the annoyance
thereby decreased by applying hot water to them at frequent Intervals.
Where the eye ls Inflamed or smarts,
after a period of eye strain, such as
night work often Induces, bot applications are the things for relief, but
the water used should be gradually
allowed to cool off toward the end.
Tired eyes will Invariably be rejuvenated by adopting this method of treatment, and many headaches resulting
from Sucb a condition may thereby be
prevented or cured.

Th* Drama In Iceland.
In Its march to the pole the drama
bas reached Iceland. It Is a recent
graft upon the intellectual life of the
Island, according to the London Globe.
The flrst theater was founded so recently as 1897, and there ls only one In
the Island-at Relkjavlk-but It has
taken firm root. The dramatic season
opens In October and closes at tbe end
of April, when the good folk go fishing,
and the theater Is opeu about three
evenings a week. Bjornson and Ibsen
are mostly drawn upon, but during the
last season one or two native poets
have recited their own compositions,
which promise well. The municipality
and the diet each subsidize the theater to the extent of SOO crowns.
Don't Overwork It and Give It ex Rest
Once   In   Awhile.
A man of common sense and a doctor at that said: "The liver Is misunderstood end underestimated In its
functions. If it cun be kept clean and
active there ls no reason why we
should ever be 111 a day, and we should
live to be 150 or 200 years old. It Is not
necessary to rip this organ all to pieces
with teu grains of culotnel to got it
stirred up. The best thing to do is to
shut off your food supply' for two or
three days, drop your whisky and
claret, your tea and coffee, and give
your liver a chance to rest. This should
be done once a month."
It Is well known, of course, that ln
olden times tbe liver was supposed to
be the seat of tbe affections. Friends
wheu they met lu the morning did not
salute each other with "How's your
health?" but with "How's your liver?"
Men take horseback exercise principally for.tbelr livers. A good shaking up
every morning drives away the cirrho-
tlcblllary encroachment It Is an error
to assume that whisky alone produces
cirrhosis. Overfeeding is more often
tbe cause. If the digestive organs
would organize a union and work only
eight hours a day all of us would be
healthy and long lived. Tbe trouble Is
we require the liver, stomach, bowels,
heart, brain, muscles, nerves, kidneys,
spleen, etc., to work all the time aud
