mighty cioau. ain't they?"
"Ob. dreadful! Aud they don't like
a noise, and thoy dou't like dogs, and
thoy don't Kke me. Tbey cull me the

went in there for grauumc. and Tuesday and Peter followed me, and, first
thing you know, they tracked mud all

Miss Prissy mad! But you just ought
to have seen that floor," she chuckled.
Bradley thought of the spotless oilcloth and appreciated the situation. In
the course of tbe conversation that followed he learned that Gus was an orphan, like himself, and that sbe lived
there ^aJone • with her grandmother.
Suddenly the girl snatched her steaming shoes out of the oven to run to the
"I thought I heard the gate shut" she
exclaimed. "Yes, It's grandma. P'raps
you'd better dodge out of the other
door. She'll ask questions and find out
about my feet If you don't. Goodby.
P'raps I'll see you at school tomorrow."
Bradley picked up his bundle—he
had brought It In with him—and slip-
pod out of the side door, presenting
bimself a moment later In the glory of
his new clothes to the critical gaze of
the old maids.
When Bradley started for school the
next dny his head was ringing with Instructions from the old maids concerning his behavior and attention to his
"Now, be a good boy, Bradley," said
Miss Prissy.
"Yes, Bradley," said Miss Tempy.
"Remember, we aspect a great deal of

turned to see his acquaintance of yesterday, tbe girl next door, running to
catch up, ber hood slipped back from
her hair and a dented tin pall ln ber

months Instead of coming home to eat
On the way to school they met nnother girl, whom Gus Introduced as
Clara Hopkins, a chum of hers. "She's

Upstairs at the schoolhouse was a
large room, wltb rows of double desks
on each side and a wide aisle ln tbe
center. One side of the aisle was the
girls' 's'Wl'ivtfmd U>e other wss for the"
boys. Mr. Daniels stiffly shook bands
with tlio new scholar, asked him some
questions concerning his progress ln
his studies and showed him where he
should sit The more advanced pupils
occupied the desks at the rear of the
room, and the younger ones— Bradley
among them—sat In front, Bradley's
seat mate was an older boy, than be,
rather good looking, with curly bn!r.
His name, so he whispered beforo
school began, was Sam Hammond.
At recess Bradley went out on tlie
playground for a little while, but he
felt rather lonesome among so many
Btrangers and so returned to the schoolroom, lt was empty, the teacher taking his customary "constitutional" la
the yard. After a few minutes Gus
came bounding In.
"Why, Brad," she exclaimed,
"where've you boen? I've been lookln'
for you. Why didn't you come on out?"
"Oh, I dou't know," replied the boy.
"I don't know any of the fellers yet."
"Well, you're goin' to know 'em. Ob,
my goodness! WInfield!"
The stub tailed dog sat panting nt
her feet, three Inches of red tongue
hanging from Its mouth.
"You naughty, naughty dog!" cried
Gus almost In tears. "How dare you!
Go home this minute!"
"Go home, WInfield!" commanded
Bradley, coming to tbe rescue.
WInfield bad gone home by the shed
route already tbat morning and didn't
propose to do It again. When bis mistress tried to catch blm he retreated to
a safe distance and wagged his tall.
"Oh, what shall we do?" walled Gus.
"Recess Is 'most over, and lf Mr. Daniels finds him here I don't know what'll
Bradley made a dash at the dog, and
the latter started on tbe run about tho
room. At length they drove blm out
the "boys' door" at the otber side.
Finally, being penned ln with both
.doors shut and thoroughly frightened,
.he dashed Into the closet which was
j between the doors, and li'd behind the
(wood *>o*
--."row." said (ins exultantly, "you
watch that ho don't get out, and I'll
crawl In after him. Oh, my goodness,
there's Mr. Daniels comin' now!"
The cowhide hoots of the teacher
were heard on the stairs. Bradley, in
desperation, shut the closet door upon
the Imprisoned Winfleld. Mr. Daniels
stepped to the rope In the entry and
gave It a pull. The bell above responded with a single note, and tbe scholars
began to pour up the stairs.
"We will como to order," commanded
the teacher. By dley, glauelng across
the aisle at Gus, saw that she was as
white as the whitewashed wall.
"First class In arithmetic." said Mr.
Daniels, and tben from the closet came
a long, dismal whiije. The flrst class
In arithmetic stopped In Its tracks and
looked aghast. The whole school, with
two exceptions, picked up Its ears. The
exceptions trembled.
"Ow-wow-wow!" came from . the
closet. Mr. Daniels strode across the
floor and opeued the door.
"Whose dog ls this?" he demanded
No one answered.
"Come out of that!" commanded the
teacher savagely. He reached behind
the wood box and, seizing tbe cowering
Winfleld by the scruff of tbe neck,
tossed him Into the room. "Whose dog
is this?" he repeated.
Most of the scholars knew whose dog
it was. but none of tbem told.
"I asked a question!" thundered the
master. "Who put that—that creature
In the closet?"
Bradley looked at his fellow conspirator. Tben he held up bis band. "I
did." he said.
Mr. Daniels' mouth opened in surprise. New pupils did not usually begin ln this way.
"You did?" he gasped.
"Yes, s.'r. He fol— I mean he came
Into tbe room when 'twas n-eess, and
we—I tried to put blm out, and he
wouldn't go."
"So you shut him In the closet Brll.
Uant youth! As this is your flrst day
here, I suppose. I must stretch a point
and believe It waft not done on purpose:
If It had been any other of thn scholars I should have made an example of
'em. I am surprised that yoa should
treat your little broUier" (appreciative
titter from the school) "In such a manner.   Yon may put him out"
It was easy enough to command, but
not so easy to do. Tbe dog, frightened
at tbe crowd, backed away when Bradley approached-.
"Come here, Winfleld," said the Doy.
his face a bright crimson. The school
giggled at the name.
"Winfleld.'"   repeated   Mr.   Danleis.
"Why that name, If you please?"
»"I—I don't know, sir."
"You don't know?"
"No, sir." And then the boy. hail a
happy thought. "He's named after
Gen'ral Hancock. I guess."
General Winfleld Scott Hancock, In
his role of statesman, was very much
In the public eye Just at tbls time.
Mr. Daniels hesitated.' He more than
suspected the dog's renl namesake, but
he wasn't sure and. heing n weak man.
was afraid of making n mistake.
"Well, put the creature out!" be
snarled,  and then.  losing his temper
and aiming a kick at the dog, he commanded, "Git out. you brute!"
That kick was a mistake. Winfleld
wasn't used to kicks, and tbls one scattered bis doggish senses completely.
He started on u panicky, yelping flight,
hotly pursued by llrndley. Dowu tbe
aisle by the "boys' side," across the
back of the room among the feet of the
"flrst clnss In arithmetic" and up the
aisle by the "girls' side" nped the chase.
At the end of the second lap tbe entire
school wus In au uproar. Mr. Daniels
white with rage, took a band In tho
pursuit, and his efforts .and those of
two or three more volunteers only
made matters worse.
At length the dog, hemmed In on
both sides, hesitated In the middle of
the broad aisle. Suddenly he darted
toward tbe closet once more. Mr. Daniels leaped to Intercept hlni, tripped,
struck the stool upon which the bucket
of drinking wnter wns placed and
sprawled upon tne floor In the center
of a miniature flood, whll • Winfleld.

entry and down tbe stairs, a shrieking

somewhat worried at his silence and
confided to her sister the fear that he
had been "studyln' too hard." "All our
people bave been dreadful keen students," she said.
It was nearly 1 o'clock when the boy
re-entered the school yard. As be did
so a shout went, up from a group near
the fence.
"Here he is!" yelled one of the older
boys. "Here's your beau, Gus. He
won't let 'em plague bis girl, you bet:"
"No," shouted Sam Hammond, "Ous-

"Gusty had a little dog;
Its fleece was black's a crow"—
"You shut up!" screamed Gus, breaking from the circle and stamping her
foot savagely. Her face was red, and
there were tears in her eyes.
"It followed her to school one day,"
continued tbe tormentor.
"What's tbe matter, Gus?" asked
Bradley, coming up.
"Haw, baw!" laughed Sam gleefully.
"I told you so. Bradley '11 take care of

"None of your bus'ness!" snapped
Gus, who was ln no mood to be friendly with any one. "You jest wait, Sam

(To Be Continued)
A Hopeless Case.
A Scottish paper tells a story of an
old Scottish woman who was "unco'
drouthle," without the money to buy
"a drapple." "Lassie," she said to
her little granddaughter, "gang round
to Donald McCallum and bring me a
gill. Tell htm I'll pay blm i' the morning."
Back came the child witb a refusal.
Donald declined to part with his whisky without the cash. Eager and Irritated, tbe old woman cast about for
some means of "raising the wind." and
her eye fell upou the family Bible.
"Here, lassie," she said, "gle him tbls
and tell him to keep it until I briug
him the siller." Off went the little
girl, but she soon returned, still car
rylng the Bible.   Donald was obdurate.
"He says be maun bae ths bauboes
flrst, granny."
In anger the disappointed grand
mother threw up her hands and exclaimed: "Losh. did onybody ever bear
tbe like o' that! The man will neither
tak my word nor the word o' God for
a gill o' wbusky!"
A Canine Shirker.
Rex, a thoroughbred Spitz, roust perform the painful duty of escorting a
certain neighbor home wben she bas
been calling tit our house. However,
It Is not without a show of reluctance
that be does it Recently onr friend
missed ber escort and no amount of
whistling proved equal to recalling
him. Tbls occurred several times and
It was nlways In about the same place
that Rex dlsappearijid. One night our
friend determined to discover Rex's
little game. After whistling and calling sbe made a pretense of going on.
She stopped ln a deep shadow.
Around the corner of tbe neatest houae
appenred n slinking figure. Stealthily
quitting the shadows Rex crept out
and peered long and anxiously up the
street, whither, as be well knew, he
should hnve continued to conduct tbe
lady. After this he turned shamelessly
around and lit out for home.

She bad been fitted for two gowns,

"Now," sbe said to the saleswoman,
"I want you to do me a favor."
"Certainly," waa the prompt response.
The customer colored deeply. **I
want you to make out tbe bill partly
for gowns for me nnd partly for baby
dresses aud a baby's cloak."
Tbe saleswoman was used to the
whims of fashionable women, but this
was something she was a llttle slow In
comprehending. The customer explained.
"Yoll see," she said, "my hnsband Is
very fond of our baby, nnd If he seca
that the bill Is partly for dresses for
her—well, be won't mind so much."—

Dancing Masks and Blankets Used In
tha Northwest.
Here are some strange figures from
the great Northwest. They represent
the dancing masks and blankets used
by the Tsinshean Indians of British
Columbia in their medicine and sun
Many an Indian has fainted from
the exertion of wearing the heavy
wooden masks and working the wires
that hold the jaw. It is impossible
to buy one of these masks.
Dealers in Indian curios have smaller ones made for tourists, but they
are never like the originals wliich cau
only   be   found   among  the   Indiana,
wbo jealously guard them, or in the
Sheldon Jackson Museum, at Sitka.
The Chilkat blankets on the images
are kept in the secret recesses of tlie
Indian huts and only brought out on
state occasions.
Each design on them means a
story, and the few people who were
fortunate enough to get Chilkat blankets in the early days of British Columbia and Alaska paid from $200 to
J300 Ior them.
No Indian blanket is as nne or
prized as highly. It is a queer thing
that though the Indians live* in the
dirtiest of huts their blankets and
masks always come out fresh when
they wish to sear them for somo orgy
or celebration. The masks in this
picture are owned by one family, and
this accounts for the similarity in
shape and design. The colors on them
are dull reds, blues and black.
Heir to British Throne Has As Peaceable Days As Commoner.
Never in tho history of England has
there been such a contrast between a
King and the heir to his throne as at
present. The ftviher, "weighted with
the crown," rushes up and down the
land in motor cars and special trains,
attending christenings race meetings,
receptions, garden parties, semi-state
and state functions, morning, noon
and night. The son, whose only
trouble seems to be the riddle of killing time, sits in his room at Marlborough House posting stamps into
an album or reading a book. He does
absolutely nothing, and does it with
such a- masterly inactivity as to rouse
one almost ,Ui enthusiasm at .the idea
of how successfully tliis proud prince
manages to while away his golden
The prince, the princess and the
rest of the family are up betimes,
which means about 8 o'clock in the
morning. There is the ordinary breakfast of a well-to-do English family,
and the head of it beguiles the intervals between bacon and eggs with the
morning papers. After breakfast there
are charity letters to dictate to a secretary, for even the Prince of Wales
is not exempt from the incessant
stream of begging letters and appeals
from charitable institutions which
weigh down the postman's bag at
every delivery.
Having completed this, the heaviest
task of the day, the prince goes for a
walk in St. James' Park or Hyde
Park accompanied by one of his equerries who live in Marlborough House,
and when this constitutional is over
it is time to rj back and prepare tor
luncheon. Sometimes there is a guest,
but more often the meal is taken only
in the company of one of the equerries and a lady of the princess' household. Luncheon over, there mUBt be
some stamps to sort (the prince's
stamp collection is the finev.t in the
world, and iB said to be worth more
than £100,000.)
Then comes another walk in the
park, and then a book to read until
tea time, when there are generally
one or iwo visitors. Dinner, at 8.30
p. m., is quite informal, with a guest
or two only hete (ind there. If the royal couple go to the theatre, dinner is
se*, for 7, but as they do not often go
to the theatre the evening is spent
quietly at home, the prince reading
a hook and the princess doing some
fancywork with the needle. Bed at
10.30 a. in.
Fond of Crab.
A jolly old boy from tbe Midlands
entered Into one of tbe hotels at the
seaside and, seeing on the slab on the
right a crab dressed on the shell with
legs, claws nnd parsley ranged round,
said to the landlord:
"Wbat d'ye call that?"
"Crab," was tbe answer.
"Looks good, m bave un, and gle
ns a pint of ale."
Bread and butter was added and the
diner left to bis dinner. In about an
hour tbe genial landlord entered the

It la Best to Examine Clothes Going
to Wash.
Accumulations In pockets should be
looked for. Tobacco allowed to remain
In a man's waistcoat pocket may cause
a stain In the procens of washing which
Irretrievably damages tbe waistcoat
All pins should be carefully removed
before clothes .<ro sent to the laundry.
Failure to do this may quite easily
bring about blood polsouing, from
whlcb fatal consequences are not Infrequent.
Hooks should always be rust proof,
or the blouse or other article upon
which they are sewed is quite likely to
be spoiled.
Mauy dcliiately tinted and daintily-
trimmed blouses, usually sent to a.
cleaner, can be laundered to perfection, but it behooves the customer to-

Tha  Grace Spoiled
A deaf old gentleman dined with
a family where grace was always
said. When the guests were seated
the host bowed his head and began
to repeat t..e accustomed verse in a
subdued, reverent tone.
"Eh? What's tKat?" demanded the
deaf old gentleman who sat beside
The host smiled patiently and began again, in a louder, more deprecatory voice.
"Speak a little louder, I don't
catch what you say," the old gentleman persisted.
A low ripple of laughter went round
the table. The host, his face crimson with embarrassment, raised his
voice and repeated the verse. The
deaf old gentleman did his best to
hear, but failed. He placed his
hand upon his host's arm.
"What did you say?" he demanded
"D n it, I'm saying grace," he
snapped.—Harper's Weekly.

There is really no warm season. Even

relieves the darkness. Optical phenomena of great variety, beauty, and
comdexity are common. Solar and
lunar haloes, and coronae, and mock
suns  and moons   are  often  seen.
Auroras seem to be less common
and less brilliant in the Antarctic
than in the Arctic. Sunset and sunrise colors within the Polar zones
nre described as Irving extraordinarily
brilliant and impressive. Thus the
North Polar summer, in spite of its
drawbacks, is in some respects a
pleasant and healthful season.
But the Polar night is monotonous,
depressing, repelling. An everlastingly uniform snow covering, P** wy,
lifelessness, silence — except? _or* the
howl of the gale or the cracking of
the ice. Small wonder that tbe Polar
night has sometimes unbalanced
men's minds. The first effects are often a strong desire for sleep, and indifference. Later effects have been
sleeplessness and nervousness, tend1
ing in extreme cases to insanity, anaemia,  digestive  troubles.
Extraordinary low winter temperatures are easily borne if the air is
dry and still. Nansen notes "not very
cold" at a temperature of—22 degrees,
when the air was still. Another Arctic explorer, at 9 degrees, says "it is
too warm to skate." Zero weather
seems pleasantly refreshing if clear
and calm. But high relative humidity nnd wind—even a light breeze—
give the same degree of cold I a penetrating feeling of chill rhich may be
unbearable. Thus the damper air of
spring and summer usually seems
mnch colder than the drier air of winter, although the temperatures may
be the same. When exposed directly
to the air the skin burns and blisters; the lips swell and crack. Thirst
has been much complained of by
Polar explorers, and is surely due to
the active evaporation from the warm
body into the dry, relatively cold air.
There is no doubt that Polar air is
singularly free from micro-organisms
—a fact "which is due chiefly to lack
of communication with other parts of
the world. Hence diseases which are
common in temperate zones, "colds"
among them, are rare.

The summer months are a time of
anxiety for mothers because they are
the most dangerous months in the
year for babies and young children.
Stomach and bowel troubles come
quickly during the hot weather, and
almost before the mother realizes
that there is danger the little one
may be beyond aid. Baby's Own
Tablets will prevent summer complaints if given occasionally because
they keep the stomach and bowels
free from offending matter. And the
Tablets will cure these troubles if
they come suddenly. The wise mother should keep these Tablets always
at hand and give them occasionally
to her children. The Tablets can be
given with equal success to the newborn babe or the well-grown child.
They always do good—they cannot
possibly do harm, and the mother
has the guarantee of a government
analyst that this medicine does not
contain one particle of opiate or
harmful drug. Sold by all medicine

Wild Plums
Prunus Americana is the botanical
name of the native wild plain of the
Northern States, and the many
named varieties of this plum now in
cultivation have been worked out by
selection, cultivation and the breeding of new varieties. The wild plnm
of Manitoba, though given a different
name by botanists, is closely related
to prunus Americana, and' is no
doubt quite as susceptible to improvement. Our hope for the future
in growing p'ums lies in the improvement of our native species, as
few of the cultivated plumB of other
countries are of any value here.
With a view to the improvement of
our native plum, the Buchanan
Nursery Co. of St. Charles, Man.,
offers a prize of $5 for the best
sample of native wild plums sent
them this season. Anyone who
wiBhes to compete for this prize
should send about a pint of the fruit
to the company, by mail, with their
name and address.

Pleasant Methodist church was the
occasion of a large gathering and
splendid concert on Tuesday evening
tn the Sunday school rooms. The
programme was a treat, every number being entertaining and uplifting,
being either humorous or of inspiring
sentjment. A splendid and instructive address was given by Rev. R.
Millikeu, B. D., of Wesley church on
"'The Gospel of Ploy," its theme being the necessity of recreation or
play in order to maintain the strenu-
ousness of modern commercial life.
Some form of enjoyment and relaxation being necessary to all Itt order
to achieve and enjoy, thus giving one
_ recreative ability; the theme was
vividly Illustrated with serious and

World is Mine" by Mr. R. Sparling,
The programme was bubbling over
With humorous selections, the gems
being given by Rev. II. W. Piercy,
"The Man Who Whistled," and Arte-
mug Ward's experience with fourteen
Mormon widows. Mrs. Wm. Moore,
the well known comic vocalist and
cornet imitator, kept the audience in
foars of laughter. Master Percy Lee,
a clever young pianist, gave several
selections with spirit, and ''Valse
Chroniatiquo" was well rendered by
Mr. H. Kremlin. The programme

"Strewn With Wrecks—Entire Kingdom Swept From End to End—Ths
Worst For Year*.
From bright punny and springlike
weather, with the parks and gardens
gay with snowdrops and crocuses,
England has this week been plunged
back to the depths of winter with one
of the worst and most devastating
storms ever experienced throughout
■the United Kingdom.
Widespread havoc has been caused
■wn the land, with a considerable number of casualties, while all round these
islands the coast is strewn with
wrecked and disabled ygssels. Lifeboats everywhere have had a busy
The storm has been accompanied
by heavy rains in some parts and by
blinding snow in others. Even London has witnessed another heavy
snowfall, though not quite so bad as
the last, when traffic was so seriously
interfered with.
The wind ot one time reached a velocity estimated at from eighty to one
-hundred miles an hour, stripping the

_ mass of brick coping, was thrown
into Fleet street and some people were
hurt. It is marvellous how many escaped with only a fright; still more
marvelloua nobody was killed.
The bank of the Barclay company
had to be guarded by the police, owing to fear that the building would
totally collapse so badly was it dam-
-aged by the storm. The roof had
■crashed through the first floor with
tremendous force and two sides of the
^building are a total wreck, all the
furniture being smashed.

^Frank Tuller, employed on the
lEdgewood estate of F. 8. Pieraon, ia
a lucky man. But his two dogs did
not bear charmed lives. They are victims of a fifty-pound wildcat, while
Tuller is nursing several scratches received in an encounter with the brute.
jNow, Tuller did not think there was

But he had reckoned without his host.

Tablet Unveiled to John  Macdonnell,
Brock's   Gallant   Aide-de-Camp.
The unveiling ot a bronze memorial
tablet to the memory of Lieut.-Col. L.
lohn Macdonnell of Glengarry, Gen.
Brock's gallant nuie-de-camp, at the
site of the old redan battery on the
face of Queenston Heights, was an
event wliich made the visit of
the 41st Regiment, Brockville Rifles,
to Niagara Falls. Ont., ever remembered. The regiment arrived on a recent Saturday morning and marched
to Queenston Park for breakfast. They
afterwards took cars on the International Railway for Queenston Heights
Park. There, on the site of the old
battery which played such an important part in the famous battle, the
I.undy's Lane Historical Society had
erected a memorial to the brave Macdonnell, but it hnd never boen unveiled This ceremonial was conducted by Mrs. Cmikshank. wife of Lieut.-
Col. and Brigadier Cmikshank, in the
presence of the visiting regiment, representatives of the Lundy'B Lane
Historical. Society, officers of other
military camps and many spectators.
When the veil was drawn aside Mrs.
Fisched, wife dt the Lieut.-Col. commanding the 41st Regiment, marched
forward and on behalf of the Brockville Chapter, Daughters of the Empire, placed a wreath of ivy and im-
morteUs upon it The silver band of
the 41st Regiment played the British
and Canadian national anthems, and
Lieut.-Col. Cruikshank on behalf of
the Lundy's Lane Historical Society
presented the tablet to the public. The
inscription on the memorial reads as
"Site of Redan Battery. Near this
spot. Lieut.-Col. John Macdonneil,
Attorney-General of Upper Canada,
was mortally wounded 12th of October, 1812."
The  wreath  which  was  laid  upon
the memorial was subsequently removed to Macdonnell's Brockville monument, where it will be preserved.
They Listened to the Story.
After these ceremonies the visiting
troops assembled in front of the Brock
monument and listened to a talk on
the battle of Queenston Heights by
Lieut.-Col. Cruikshank, who undoubt-
edly knows more of the history of
the war on the frontier than any other living man.
In the afternoon the officers of the
41st visited the battlefield of Lundy'B
Lane, where Lieut.-Col. Cruikshank
delivered another of his accurate and
entertaining historical military features. In connection with this visH
it was recalled that it was the light
company of the 41st Regiment of the
line, commanded by Capt. Clew,
which led the final charge up the hill
of blood and fire and wrested victory
from defeat on the night of July 25,
1814. The battlefield of Chippewa
and many other points of historical
interest were also visited by the
Brockville soldiers.

The highest known authority on
bananas, the golden treasure of the
tropics, is Edward W. Perry. Said
he: "Bananas pay their producer
nearly three times as much money
as potatoes are worth an acre; bring
the grower profits which are three
times the farm value of the chief
food crops of the United States, nnd
have paid gains equal to 5 per cent
per annum on $1,138 an acre for the
last twenty-five years. The crop is
sold years ahead of production at
prices ensuring good profits." Mr.
Perry adds: "Bananas are by millions of people eaten green or ripe,
raw or cooked; are served in all ways
in which apples, grains and potatoes
are used, and are palatable, healthful and nutritious in every wav in
which they ar6 prepared. They
make excellent bread, cakes and pies,
puddings, confectionery and coffee
substitutes; yield brandy, beer, vinegar, sugar, oil and fibres. They are
bought as a luxury by millions who
may nse them as a staple food. Yet
they may be grown profitably in a
small area only; therefore banana
culture affords a perfectly safe and
gainful use of time and money."—

Ether a Festive  Drink  in  Russia
The habit of ether drinking is extremely prevalent in some parts of
Russia, as of East Prussia, and all
the efforts of the authorities to
combat the evil have hitherto bein
almost fruitless.
An idea of the extent to whicll the
habit prevails may be gathered from
reports given in the Russian newspapers of a recent accident which
occurred at a place called Tiossno.
Ether is drunk by farmers on festive
occasions, when it appears to be
consumed in pailfuls. A farmer celebrating his son's " 'd., n .lie _ul-
ness of his hospitality got in two
pails of ether. During the process
of decanting tho ether into bottles a
violent explosion took place, by
which six children were killed and
one adult was dangerously and four-
i teen others more or less severely n-
jured.—Family Doctor.

Dear Boys and Girls:
OF BOURSE, you know that the
capital city of Japan ls Toklo.
But Just as Philadelphia and
New York in turn were the capital cities of the United States before
the city of Washington was built, so
Japan had two capital cities before Toklo attained the distinction she now enjoys. One was Kioto, and the other and
more ancient capital wus Nara.
Jacky and hlB auntie saved these interesting cities for the last of their programme, and by the time they were
ready to take the trip the autumn
weather had become a trifle sharp. So
they took care to have steamer rugs
nnd heavy wraps with them on the night
train from Tokio. They might have tried
the sleeping compartment car, but they
decided to cast in their lot with the people who slept on their seats in the ordinary carriages.
This plan appeared to suit Jacky most
excellently; he rolled himself up in a
rug and started at once on a ten-hour
excursion to the land of Nod. But his
auntie more than once regretted that
she had not made different arrangements. To one side of her was a Japanese man afflicted with a terrible cough.
To the other was a Japanese who filled
the carriage with snorts and snores!
Still, Polly Evans managed to get
through the night with some degree of
comfort. For she had at least one
great consolation—the hot-water boys at
all the stations. Ah, if only America
had them! Past your window came boys
laden with trays, some provided with
Japanese bet-to (rice lunch); others with
sandwiches a la American; and still
others with cunning earthen teapots
filled with weak tea or'bolllng hot water. Tou may have a whole teapot filled
with tea or water, or a cup to drink out
of, all for the huge sum of 3 cents 1 The
train moves on, and yq,u drink your hot
water at your leisure. If you wish to
take your teapot and cup home as souvenirs, very well. Or you may leave
them under your seat for the "boy" to
remove when he cleans the carriage.
Arrived ln Kioto, Jacky and his auntie
chose a 'rickshaw and went to their hotel by a route which took them through
a number of Interesting streets.
"See, Jacky," cried his auntie, "here's
■  a good sign for you to write down."
Jacky looked, and this is what ha

Coming into one large apartment
Jacky caught sight of a piece of furniture! (Otherwise the apartments were

From Nijo Castle the next visit was to
the Empress Dowager's beautiful garden,
which happened to be open to visitors
for the flrst time ln fifteen or twenty
years, so it promised to be a rare treat,
and it indeed proved to be very well
worth a visit, with its charming lake,
cobble-paved banks and picturesque
bridges, charming paths and ancient
forest trees.
A couple of days were spent visiting
the makers of Satsuma ware, Cloisonne
ware and Damascene ware.

pine trees overhanging a pond in which
one catches glimpses of a gently playing fountain, of many rocks scattered
here and there and hundreds of well-fed
carp lazily enjoying the Bhady spots—to
the workrooms, where we were permitted to see the men and women actually
at work producing the beginning of a
wonderful Satsuma vase or Cloisonne
teapot or Damascene watchcase.
Everything was so wonderful that

But we must leave Kioto, for there Is
very llttle space left to tell of the trip
from Kioto to Nara, taking us through
beautiful tea plantations, and fine rice
of a Dutch city.
Out of the many, many places of interest which are to be seen in Kioto,
Jacky and his auntie selected about a
dozen which they were particularly anxious to see. First, the oastle of the
anciertt Tokugawa Shoguns, who for so
many centuries usurped the real power
of the Emperor—Nijo Castle.
Our special permit, obtained through
the courtesy of the American Minister,
was presented at the ancient and interesting gateway, and an old man, with a
very dignified but courteous manner,
took us ln tow and conducted us first
through the grounds, then through the
castle Itself, at the entrance to which we
tarried to remove our shoes and put on
soft slippers.
Oh,  the magnificence   of   the apart-
farms. It was rtue harvesting time and
for miles and miles we saw nothing
scarcely but long rows of poles from
which hung sheaves of rice to dry in
the sun.
At last we arrived in Nara—the city
of memories! -once with a population
of 250,000, now only a tenth of that size;
once the seat of Nippon's Imperial family, now the abiding place of Buddhist
priests and ancient Idols and sacred
deer! '
Scarcely a square from the station,
ln the heart of the business section of
the city, what should come trotting
calmly up to up but two handsome

"Did   you   ever . gee . _nythbj—'   to   beat"
this?" " ■ ' —'
We bought half a cent'B worth of bean
cakes, which ths deer ate greedily out
of our hands. This was our first experience with the deer of Nara. Later,
when we found the hills, the paths and
the Temple grounds fairly swarming
with them; when we had all we could do
to keep the sacred animals from robbing
us of anything eatable which we might
happen to be carrying, we decided that
they were not quite so delightful after
"In fact," confessed Jacky, "I've Been
all the deer I want to see."
"Then," said the friend who was showing us around, "perhaps you will sympathize with the poor fellow whose
grave I shall now show you.
"This poor man one day sat down under this tree to rest from his morning's
work and eat the luncheon he had
brought with him. But no sooner did
the deer catch sight of it than they began to crowd around him and try to get
a nibble at it. You know how hard
they can push and how they must have
annoyed this hungry man. Well, presently he lost patience, and picking up a
small stone he threw lt at one of the
deer and unfortunately killed lt. Alas!
for tho poor man, for the deer were held
sacred, and to kill one meant death for
the murderer.
"So the people stoned the man then and
there, and here under this pile of stones
he lies. But the people later quite
changed their minds about the poor follow, and they set up a stone In front of
the grave, and here they come to worship for the good of his soul."
"H'm! he paid dearly for that deer,"
commented Jacky.

FOUR-YEAR-OLD James was, un»

This time the child went more slowly,,

"Since father's boy was so brave,"
said Mr. Parsons, "here is a quarter
for him."
Then, lo test the child, he pulled out a
nickel, saying: "Jim, perhaps you would
rather have this money instead of the,
"All right," replied James, willingly
handing back hl_r flrst reward.
"Why, James, dear," exclaimed his
mother, "don't you know twenty-five
cents Is more than five?"
"Course I do," answered James, "but
I can spend the five cents, and I'd have,
to put Ihe quarter In my bank!'

To Apply Insertion
WE ARE beginning to make up
our pretty summer goods, it
we are wiso, and probably we
will be using a good deal of lace Insertion. A quick, neat, easy way to apply It Is as follows: stitch the Insertion to the material on both sides without cutting goods. When this is done,
' turn and silt the material down through
the middle, being, careful not-to cut the
lace. Turn back close to tho stitching
end press down tight, or baste, if necessary. Stitch again right over first
stitching, and then trim away material
close. Some very nest people hem
dow,n this material Instead of cutting it
away, but, when finished, the garment
does not look nearly so neat as wn«n
cut close, antl is no more secure.

OTHER, mayn't   I   have   a   dog?"-
pleaded 6-year-old Anna D .
"No, dear, mother cannot let you
have a dog. There is no room for ono
in a city."
"Then, mother, can't I havo a pretty
little kitten?   Please say yes!"
"I'm afraid not, Anna, for kittens
often bring disease to little girls."
The next day Anna's mother took her
to the doctor's.
"Doctor," said the ohild, "my mother
won't let mc have a kittle. She says
they are not healthy. Wcn't you let mo
huve one?"
"Well, 1 would not have one, Anna, If
I were you. Kittens breed disease. I
have a little girl now sick with diphtheria, and her mamma thinks she got
It from  her kitten."
That evening when Anna, much disgusted, told her father of the doctor's
opinion, she asked: "Father, do you
think a specialist would say that?"
