Author of "Eben Holden." "D'ri and 1," Elc
COPYRIGHT.      1805.      BY      LOTHROP      PUBLISHING      COMPANY
In such disfavor was the poor man
that all would have been glad to have
blm go anywhere, so he left Hillsborough.
One day in the Christmas holidays a
boy came to the door of Riley Brooke
wltb a bucksaw on his arm.
"I'm looking for work," eaid the
boy, "and I'd be glad of the chance to
saw your wood."
"How much a cord?' waa the loud
"Forty cents."
"Too much," said Brooke. "How
much a day?"
"Six shillings."
"Too much," said the old man snappishly. "I used to git SO a month when
I was your age, au' rise at 4 o'clock in
, tbe mornln' an' work till bedtime. Vou
boys nowilays are a la.'V, good fer
nothln'lot.   What's yer nam* V"
"Sidney Trove."
"Don't want ye."
"Well, mister," said the boy, who
was much In need of money, "I'll saw
your wood for anything you've a mind
to give me."..
"I'll give ye 50 cents a day," aaid the
old man.
Trove hesitated. The sum was barely balf wbat be <-ou' J earn, but he bad
1 given bis promise and fell to. Riley
Brooke spent half the day watching
.' nnd urging him to faster work. More
than once tbe boy was near quitting,
but kept bis good nature and a strong
pace. When at last Brooke went away
Trove beard a sly movement of the
blinds and knew that other eyes were
on the watch. He spent three days at
the job—laming, wearisome days after
eo long an absence from heavy toil.
''Waal, I suppose ye want money,"
Brooke snapped as tbe boy came to the
door. "How much?"
"One dollar and a half."
"Too much, too much. I won't pay
"Tbat was the sum agreed upon."
"Don't eare. Ye hain't earned no
dollar an' a half. Here, take that an'
clear out," having said which Brooke
tossed some money at the boy and
slammed the door In his fnce. Trove
counted the money. It was a dollar
and a quarter. He was sorely tempted
to open the door and fling It back at
him, but wisely kept his patience and
walked away. It was the day before
Christmas. Trove had planned to walk
home thnt evening, but a storm bad
come, drifting the snow deep, and be
had to forego tbe visit. After supper
he went to the Sign of the Dial. Tbe
tinker was at home in his odd llttle
shop and gave him n hearty welcome.
Trove sat by 'the fire and told of the
sawing for Riley Brooke.
"God   rest  him!"   said   the  tinker,
thoughtfully puffing bis pipe.    "Wbat
would happen, think ye, if a man like
■   blm were let Into heaven?"
"I cannot Imagine," said the boy.
"Well, for one thing." said the tinker,
"hie'd begin to look for chattels, an' I
do fear me there'll soon be many without harps."
"What is one to do with a man like
that?" Trove inquired.
"Only this," said the tinker —"put
him in tby book. He'll make good
history. But, sor, for company he's
"It's a new way to use men," aaid
"Nay, an old way—a very old way.
Often God makes an example o' rare
malevolence an' seems to say, 'Look,
despise and be anytblng but this.' Like
Judas and Herod, he Is an excellent
figure In a book. Put him In thine,
"And credit blm with full payment?"
the boy nsked.
"Long ago, praise God, there was a
great teacher," said tbe old man.   "It
ls a day to think of blm.   Return good
'    for evil—those were bis words.   We've
never tried lt, an' I'd like to see how It
may work.   Tbe trial would be amusing if lt bore no better fruit."
"Wbat do you propose?"
"Well, say we take him a gift, with
our best wishes," said tbe tinker.
"If I can afford it," tbe boy replied.
The tinker answered quickly:  "Oh,
I've always a little  for a Christmas,
an'  I'll buy tbe gifts.   Ah, boy, let's
away for the gifts.    We'll—we'll punish him with klndnesB."
They went together and bought a
pair of mittens and a warm mulller for
Riley Brooke: and walked to his door
with them and rapped'upon it. Brooke
came to the door with a candle.
"What d'ye want?" be demanded.
"To wish you merry Christmas and
present you gifts." said Trove.
The old man raised his candle, surveying them with surprise and curiosity.
"What gifts?" he Inquired In * milder
"Well," said the boy, "we've brought
you mittens aud a muffler."
"Ha, ba! Yer consciences have smote
ye!" said Brooke. "Glory to God, who
brings the sinner to repentance!"
"And Oils the bitter cup o' the ungrateful,'' said the tinker, and they
Went away.
"I'd like to bring one other gift,"
said Darrel.
"What's that?"
"God forgive me—a rope to hang
html   But mind thee, boy, we are try-
"Un, hal    Yer consciences hone smote
Ing the law o' the Great Teacher, and
let us see if we can learn to love this
"Love Ulley Brooke?" said Trove
"A great achievement. I grant thee,"
said the tinker, "for if we can love him
we shall be able to love anybody. Let
us try an' see wbat comes of It."
A man was waiting for Darrel at the
foot of the old stairs—a tall man, poorly dressed, whom Trove bad not seen
before and whom now be was not
able to see clearly in the darkness.
"The mare is ready," snid Darrel.
" 'Tis a dark night."
He to whom the tinker bad spoken
made no answer.
"Good night," said the tinker, turning. "A Merry Christmas to thee, boy,
an' peace an' plenty."
"I have peace, and you have given
me plenty to Ihink about," said Trove.
On bis way borne tbe boy thought of
the stranger at tbe stairs, wondering
lf he were the otber tinker of whom
Darrel bad told bim. At bis lodging
he found a new pair of boots with only
the Christmas greeting on a card.
"Well," said Trove, already merrier
than most of far better fortune, "he
must have been somebody tbat knew
my needs."
THE clock tinker was off In Ihe
snow paths every other week.
In more tban a hundred
homes, scattered far along
road lines of tbe great valley, be set
the pace of the pendulums. Every
winter the mare was rented for easy
driving and Darrel made bis journeys
afoot. Twice a day Trove passed the
little shop, and If there were a chalk
mark on the dial be bounded upstairs
to greet bis friend. Sometimes be
brought another boy into the rare atmosphere of the clock shop—one, may-
hop, wbo needed some counsel of tbe
wise old man.
Spring bad come again. Every day
sowers walked the hills and valleys
around Hillsborough, tbelr hands
swinging with a godlike gesture that
summoned the dead to rise. Everywhere was tbe odor of broken field or
garden. Night had come again after
a day of magic sunlight, and soon after
8 o'clock Trove was at the door of the
tinker, with a schoolmate.
"How are you?" said Trove, as Darrel opened the door.
"Better for the sight o' you," said the
old man promptly. "Enter, Sidney
Trove, nnd another young gentleman."
The boys took the two chairs offered
them in silence.
"Kind sor," the tinker added, turning
to Trove, "thou bast tby cue. Give us
tbe lines'."
"Pardon me," said-, tbe boy. "Mr.
Darrel, my friend Richard Kent."
"Of the academy?" s«:d Darrel as he
held to the bnnd of Kent.
"Of the academy," said Trove.
"An', I make no doubt, o' good hope,"
the tinker added. "Let me stop one o'
the clocks, so I may not forget the hour
o' meeting a new friend."
Darrel crossed the room and stopped
a pendulum.
"He would like to join thla night
Bchool of onrs," Trove answered.
"Would he?" said the tinker. "Well,
lt- ia one e' bard lessons. When ye
come t' multiply love by experience,
an' subtract vanity an' add peace, an'
square the remainder, an' then divide
by the number o' days in thy life, lt
is a mighty problem, an' the result
may be much or little, an* ye reach
He paused a moment, thoughtfully
puffing tbe smoke.
"Not In this term o' school," he added
All were silent a llttle time.
"Where have you been?" Trove inquired presently.
"Home," said the old man.
There was a puzzled look on Trove's
"Home?" he repeated with a voice of
"I have, sor," the clock tinker went
on. "This poor shelter is not me home.
It's only for a night now an' then. I've
a grand house an' many servants an' a
garden, sor, where there be flowers-
lovely flowers—an' sunlight an' noble
music. Believe me, boy, 'tis enough to
make one think o' heaven."
"I did not know of it," said Trove.
"Know ye not there is a country in
easy reach of us with fair fields an'
proud cities an' many people an' all
delights, boy, ell delights? There I
hope thou shalt found a city thyself
an' build it well so nothing shall overthrow It—flre, nor flood, nor the slow
siege o' years."
"Where?" Trove Inquired eagerly.
"In the Blessed Isles, boy, in the
Blessed Isles. Imagine the Infinite sea
o' time tbat is behind us. Stand high
an' look back over Its dead level. King
an' empire an' all their striving multitudes aVe sunk ln the mighty deep. But
thou shalt see rising out of It tbe
Blessed Isles of imagination. Green-
forever green are tbey—and scattered
far into the dim distance. Look! There
is tbe city o' Shakespeare—Norman
towers an' battlements an' gotblc
arches looming above the sea. Go there
an' look at the people as they eome'au'
go. Mingle with tbem an' tiud good
company—merry hearted folk a-plenty,,
nn' Guil knows 1 love tbe merry hearted! Talk witb tbem, au' the." will teach
thee wisdom. Hard by is the Isle of
Milton, an' beyond are many. It would
take thee years to visit them. Ah, sor,
balf me time I live in the Blessed
"Let's go to the Isle o' Milton." Trove
"Well, go to one o' the clocks there
an' set It bnck," snld the tinker.
"How much?" Trove Inquired, with
a puzzled look.
"Well, a matter o' 200 years," said
Darrel^ who was now turning tbe
leaves. "List ye. boy. We're up to the
shore an' hard by the city gates. How
sweet the air o' this enchanted Isle!
"And west winds with mugky wing
Down the cedarn alleys fling:
Nard and c^sia's balmy smells."
He quoted, thought fully, turning the
leaves; then he read the shorter poems,
a score of them, bis voice sounding the
noble music of the lines. It was revelation for those raw youths and led
them high. They forgot the passlug of
tbe hours and till near midnight were
as those gone to a strange country, aud
they lone remembered that night with
Darrel of the Blessed Isles.

Saving ths Babies.
When Alderman Broadbent, a brother of the King's well-known physio-
ian, took office as Mayor of Hudders-
fleld, on November 9, 1904, he offered
t.i give parents living in a specified
district of the city $5 for every child
born during his twelve months in office and which lived to the age of a
year. The result of the experiment wea
announced, the second anniversary of
its inauguration. The rate of infant
mortality in the Longwood diatrict of
Huddersfield, which is the experimental area, had averaged 122 per thousand for the preceding ten years. The
period of the test proved somewhat
unfortunate. There were serious epidemics of whooping cough and measles, while the summer of 1906 was one
of the deadliest recorded. The first
baby to earn the gift was born on November 10, 1904, and the last on November 8, 1905. The mothers notified
the managing committee of the births
of these babies. No fewer than 107 received the gift. Four died and one did
not claim the gift and its fate cannot
be learned. If, however, it is reckoned
as dead the average mortality works
out 44 per thousand as compared with
tlie previous 122 per thousand.   *
Mr. Broadbent in announcing the
result at the Borough Council said
this reduction in the average to less
thari one-half of what it had been was
astounding. His promise of the gift of
$:i was intended as a stimulus to maternal affection, but to prove his desire to help mothers this waa done
through a committee of volunteer women workers who undertook to advise
and assist the parents if they so desired. The babies belonged to all classes
and there was no discrimination. Some
lived in places which were hardly neuter than slums.

Forbes was under thirty wben he discovered the polarization of heat, which

Joule was twenty-two In 1840, when

Carpenter,  of  Oil har  Will  Compare

In judging the performance of the
native Chinese workman It la almost
Impossible to avoid the popular blaa
that addiction to their own methods
end tools invariably bespeaks famous
conservatism. Though thla ls ln many
cases true. It --ill often be found on
careful obse: in that what has passed for a stub. . ,i blindness to the virtue of Innovation Is In reality a keener
perception of comparative merits than
the judge himself waa aware of. -
Thla is particularly true of Chinese
carpenters. While most of their com.
moneat toola differ In aome radical
way from our own, It la never safe to
assume the superiority of the western
product. Their small ax, for example,
Is a beautifully balanced tool, and they
are remarkably adept lu the use of It,
being able to work aa true a surface
therewith as can be obtained with an
adz ln the hands of the white man.
On heavy work It la customary for
two to hew together on opposite sides,
striking alternate blows. Both hands
are used, and the recover Is over the
shoulder, alternate right and left
There Is a freedom of swing with an
accuracy of delivery that is a treat to
watch, and the rapidity of blows ls almost bewildering.
The Great Bastard.
The great bustard (Otis tarda), a bird
still found In the southern provinces of
Russia, Is tbe heaviest European fowl.
In size It exceeds the Norwegian blackcock. Tbe old males attain a weight of
thirty-five pounds, and where food Is
plentiful specimens weighing thirty-
eight pounds and even forty pounds
have been captured. These birds have
disappeared from western Europe,
where once tbey were almost as numerous as partridges, and are seen only ln
small flocks In the' sand hills skirting
tbe lower valley of tbe Dnieper and
here and there along the north coast of
the Caspian. The hen lays eggs aa big
aa ordinary pears. A larger and heavier bird, tbe cassowary, Is Incapable of
flight, but It can kick with tbe
strength of a mule and uses the sharp,
bony quills of its wings aa a cock uses

. The young doctor who had lately settled ln Shrubvllle had ample opportunities to learn humility If nothing else

balled by an elderly man, wbo requested him to step ln and see hia
wife, who waa ailing. At the close of
his visit the young doctor asked for a
private word with the man.
"Your wife's case Is somewhat complicated," be said, "and with your permission I should like to call the Brook-

Milton's "Paradise Lost" was commenced between 1039 and 1642 and
completed about the time of the "great
flre of London" In September, 1606.
Its author composed It ln passages of
from ten to twenty lines at a time and
then dictated them to an amanuensis,
usually some attached friend. It was
flrst published In 1067 by one Samuel
Simmons, and a second edition appeared In 1674. For these two editions
Milton received £10 nnd his widow

What the Varlona Conntrle. of Ha-
rope Allow For Their Lo...
The different fingers are far from,
having the same value in tbe eyes of
the law with reference to their functional utilization. Much tbe most Important la the thumb, for without tt
prehension would be very Imperfect.
The hand la no longer pinchers, but
merely a claw, when deprived of the
thumb. It may be estimated that the
thumb represents fully a third of the
total value of tbe hand. The French
courts allow 15 to 35 per cent value
for the right band and 10 to 15 for
the left The Austrian schedule gives
from 15 per cent for the left to 25 per
cent for the right. In Germany 20
and 28 per cent and even as high as
33.3 per cent bas been awarded. The
percentage ls based on 100 aa the total
Industrial value of the hand previous
to the accident, a loss of 50 per cent
representing half of the value, etc.
The total loss of the Index finger
causes an Incapacity estimated at 10
to 15 per cent in Austria, 16 to 20 per
cent ln Germany, 15 per cent for the
left and 20 per cent for the right by
Italian courts. Tbe French allow 15
per cent
The middle linger Is of much more
Importance than the Index, states Dr.
Melguan, whom we are citing and who
la no email authority, for a great loss
of force Is observed ln the hand when
the finger Is amputated. Yet almost
all the authorities ascribe leas Importance to It than the Index. The Italian
law allows 5 per cent, the Austrian &
to 10 per cent.
The ring finger ls the least Important
Its total loss often does not cause Incapacity. The Austrian tariff assimilates this finger to the middle one. The'
Italian law la liberal, with 8 per cent
The French and German tribunals often refuse Indemnity, considering the
Incapacity resulting from the loea ae
very slight
The llttle finger may be compared to
the ring, except in the professions In
which It serves as a point of support
for the hand. It may be remarked here
that the artist has not been taken Into
consideration ln these cases.

Tha Clock'a Tick.
"Not all people," aaid the Jeweler,
"like the ticking of a clock. It ls •
pleasant sound to most people, but not
to all. Some people, clock lovers these,
couldn't Bleep without a clock ln the
same room. Its ticking is company,
and lt scares away tbe spooks. Such
people would wake up lf the clock
should stop ln the middle of the nlgbt
But there are other people who can't
sleep with a clock In the same room
and who, lf they found themselves ln
a strange place anywhere with a clock
ln their sleeping apartment would
stop the clock'before they went to bed.
Of course there ls much of habit In
this, but we have onr fancies about
clocks, aa we do about all things else.**

Managing  Editor   of the   "Gladstone
There is an attraction about newspaper life that draws many men,
who, though they hnve never been actually connected with any publication, have had the inclination since
their early yenrs to wield a pen in
a position where the wielding' would
see the light of day, giving the writer
an opportunity to advocate the principles of progress and enlightenment
which lie feels within him. It goes
without saying that any mnn who
has an honest inclination for the
newspaper life is a man of good principles; an honest man fears no publicity, and is willing to stand up for
that which is good, therefore, we say,
a man who has a standing desire to
enter the newspaper arena never does
so with the idea of lowering the
newspaper ideals, but with the idea
of adding his individuality to the efforts of hiB brethren of the fourth
estate, to the end that something may
be done for the general good of mankind.
Many men have lived their allotted
span with tliis desire always beckoning them, and yet lack the opportunity to gratify their ambition, while
others identify themselves with the
profession after their years would indicate approaching middle age, and
by their aptitude and energy, make it
a success from the start. Of thin
number is the subject of our sketch,
Mr. Geo. P. Minaker, editor and
manager of the Gladstone Age, who
has made a record in the business of
•which he may feel supremely satisfied. Since taking the "Age" office in
hand just a year ago, he has almost
doubled the business, and has also
conducted the paper in such a manner that it has made a secure place
for itself in the regard of its subscribers. Of its future success there is
not a shadow of doubt.
Mr. Minaker, was born in Cobourg,
Ontario, on Decern ber 26. 1862. He
was educated in the public schools
of that thriving manufacturing town,
and completed his school education
in the Collegiate Institute at the
same place. At the age of eighteen
he started in the mercantile business,
came west to Gladstone in 1898 and
was in the employ of the well known
firm of Galloway Bros, for about
seven years, leaving this to occupy
the editorial chair. He litis associated with him him in this venture Mr.
Y—.11, now principal of the public
schools at Neepswa, a man whom we
hopo to see drawn Into active newspaper work at some , me.
Mr. Minaker was married in 1884
to Miss Anna T. Lazier, of Belleville,
and the happy union has been blessed with five children, the oldest now
a young lady of twenty years.
He is secretary of the Hoard of
Trade at Gladstone, and fills the position to the satisfaction of his business associates, is a Freemason and
a Methodist, and withal is a man of
such modesty that it has been difficult to get him to divulge sufficient
information to produce this sketch,
which we only fear does not do him
full justice.
Mr. Minaker's efforts for the public weal are appreciated by his many
subscribers, and we hope he may enjoy health and long life to pursue his
chosen occupation.
Why Bileans  Prove So Beneficial
A medical specialist states that
eight out of ten cases of headache,
dizziness, sallow complexion, and various ailments peculiar to women for
which he is consulted have their origin in constipation. Although this
ailment is very common amongst
both sexes, women appear to be the
greater sufferers. Bileans cure constipation by stimulating the liver and
iemulating the bile flow. Bile is the
natural purgative of the body. Bi-
leaps regulates its secretion.
Mrs. S. E. Baldwin, of 38 _k Paul
Street, Toronto, says: "1 have take_
Bileans for c nstipation and dizziness
and found most satisfactory results.
Bileans do not cause any griping, and
not only cure constipation but also
improve.the  general health."
Mr. A. Monaghan, of Berlin, recently proved this vegetable remedy
in a similar, way. He says: "For
hrany years I suffered from both constipation and piles. Nothing I have
ever tried is to be compared for
beneficial result to Bileans. They
havt made me a different man, and
if any sufferer would like to ask me
any question on their operation and
their value I will be glad to give
all  the information I can."
Such is the result of exhaustive
tests of Bileans. This great vegetable
remedy is invaluable also for sallow
complexions (due to bile in the
blood), pimples, greasy, sallow skin,
and blood impurit'ei generally. Bileans also, cure indigestion, debility,
rheumatism, anemia, female ailmen'
and irregularities, "run-down teel-
iiies," liver and kidney complaint,
Headache, sleeplessness, wind spasms,
palpitation, etc. All druggists sell
at 50c a box, or obtainable poBt free
from the Bilean Co., Toronto, upon
receipt of price.   Six boxes for $2.50.

The Story of ?. Woman Made Well by
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
Bad blood means bad health. That
is why Dr. Williams' Pink Pills mean
good health. They actually make
new, rich blood which strengthens
every nerve and every, organ in the
body. That is why people who use
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills feel bright,
active and strong. Mrs. Arthur
Hanningan, Marshville, Ont., is a
witness to the truth of these statements. Mrs. Hanningan says: "For
nearly three years I suffered from
anaemia (bloodlessness) and during
that time consulted and took medicine from several doctors, without
beneficial results. My complexion
was of a waxy appearance, my lips
and gums seemed bloodless. I suffered from headches, dizziness and
palpitation of the heart. My appetite was so poor that I did not care
whether I ate or not and I grew so
weak, and was so much reduced in
flesh that my friends thought I was
in consumption. As I have said I
doctored without benefit, until the
last doctor whom I consulted adviB-
ed me to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
I followed his advice, and less than
a dozen boxes have made me the
well woman I am today. All the
symptoms of my troubles have vanished and I enjoy the best of
health. I know there are hundreds
of women who are drifting into the
same condition I was, and to all such
I would strongly urge the immediate
use of Dr, Williams' Pink Pills/'
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills do not act
upon the bowels; they do not tinker
with mere symptoms; they go right
to the root of the trouble in the
blood. That is why they cure common ailments like rheumatism, neuralgia, kidney trouble, headaches and
backaches. St. Vitus dance, and the
special ailments that afflict so many

Among the millinery creations poss'
easing distinction end whioh will procure them unlimited popularity for the
season are.first.the old fachoned poke,
with a large tie and Prince of Wales tips
in front. The newest mushroom hat
has large wreaths of mixed flours, lilacs,
roses and pansles trailing from it. The
three.cor nerod Napoleon has en Immense
willow plume over the front and is very
stylish. The flat* or fishnet hnve fine
Milan and rustic edges,whleh will undoubtedly commend them. The leading
shade* ere Copenhagen end Yale bine,
both -santifol shades, the secondary
shad eiffcclog apricot, banana end leather.
The Mage of colon 1* not confined to
these, However.
Sets of hats.umbrsHas and coat* will
be moat ad mind. The hat is a large
mohair, a mushroom ahape, with two
huge plumes going towards the bock
end trimmed with colored lace. The
umbrella ls set in with lace medallions
and haa a large bow of velvet ribbon
on the top. The Baton coat is ot colored
ribbon ond Valencinues lace to match
the hat,with a touch of gold and with
rosette bows of ribbon velvet.
A linen batiste set, consisting of umbrella and hat only, the umbrella with
pink bow and tabs, and turned with
pink silk lace, and a lingerie hat trimmed with fine wreaths of pink roses,
ht-notner offering shown by one of the
most exclusive designers.
The various displays of shapes prove
that this will be essentially • blocked
hat season. The braids are ont except
the light proxaltne braid*. Shapes are
generally of the mushroom order with
drooping brim*. The sailor, to be
trimmed Is a stroug contestant. Hoods
and flats are alio much in evidence.
Leghorn* are expected to be "good"
when the season Is a llttle further on.
Woman's Home Companion.
The March WoxAif'K Home Companion oontains "A Talk on Good Deeds,"
by Bdward Everett Hale, Who, with
tho cheerful view of a remarkable octogenarian, tell* his readers how they can
be good by doing good to others. One
of the many strong features of the
March Companion is a hitherto unpublished drawing by Whistler. Thu fascination of unlimited wealth is described
by Anna Steese Richardson iu an article entitled, "The Woman of Milliout—
How She Spends Her Money," iu which
she gives many surprising facts.
Another article of direct Interest to
feminine readers is "What the Chicago
Woman's Club Has Done for Chicago,"
by Bertha D. Knobs. The renl function
of tho woman's clnb has not yet been
settled, at least to the satisfaction of the
genoral publio, bnt the success of the
Chicago Woman's Club in oivic reform
work will go far toward solving the
problem. Another artiolo strongly ap
pealing to women, especially to
mothers, is "The Mother aud the Growing Boy," by Margaret E. SaugBter.
Tbi* article forms one of a series in
wliich Mrs. Songster talks helpfully to
mothers nbout their mnny problen s.
The fiction is headed by "The Domestio
Advonturors," a delightful new seriul
by Josephine Dnekuin Bacon. Other
stories are contributed by Zona Gale,
Julia Truitt Bishop, aud Mary W.
Hastings. The various departiueutsnud
children'a pages are upto their usual high
stuudiird of merit
Dro.1 ornaments aud fringes continue
(o be represented iu the high-class trim-
mings nml are shown iu mauy novel
and interesting designs.
Reports from several oeutree indicate
that considerable annoyance will Again
be experienced iu securing long silk
glOVAti later iu the season.
Drooping effects iu both hats and
triuimiug* aro particularly promineu
and evidently are to be among the mos.
pronounced characteristics of tho hat*

■A New London Hospital.
There is probably. nd> costlier operating-room In. the world than that of
the hospital opened in''London on Nov.
19. The rooin is made .of marble, so as
to prevent any accumulation of dust.
It has a'tAaselh-ed.^floor of Terazzo
marble, and the walla are lined with
Sicilian marble. Electrio heating
makes it possible to 'Obtain any desired temperature, and noiseless fans
provide ventilation. That the patient
may not be frightened, by the instruments used in the operation and the
presence of so many physicians and
medical students, there is an anteroom to the operation hall, where ths
patient is put under the anaaathstie.
Mr. Raoul Ftlon, 116 Bae Notr<f Da pie,
I—chine,   P.Q.,  Can.,  writes:        '
"I write you a few words to express to
. you my satisfaction at being cured. ' I
was afflicted with catarrh of the throat
and nose and suffered much. I was
creatl.v discouraged. I had a'bad breath
-and bad taste in my mouth in the morning.
"I took treatment for some time without obtaining relief. At the advice . of
friends I tried Peruna and tiie results
have been highly satisfactory. At the en1
of four months  I  was completely cured."
Neglected catarrh becomes chronic. Having developed into the chronic stage, a
longer and more persistent treatment will
be required to cure it than if the disease were  treated  at  the onset.
•However, Peruna will bring relief, whether the, catarrh is acute or chronic. If
-you are wise you v. ill keep Peruna on
'hand and take a few -doses at the first
'appearance of a cold or cough, and thus
-save yourself both suffering and expense.
Patients have the privilege of writing
to Dr. Hartman for free advice. A book
on "Chronic Catarrh" will be sent upon

magnitude,  merited  immortality.
"There is one sentence," he said, J

every sing'.e ivord, is ungrammatical.
It's hard to beat that, isn't it?

Johnson's Liberties With Alphabet.
Those who are readiest to condemn
as "scornful innovations" or "Americanisms" various suggestions for an
altered orothography are apt to forget
how arbitrary the greatest of English
dictionary makers occasionally was
in his choice between variant spellings. It was Dr. .Tohnson who added
the "k" to "musick" and "rhetorick"
and "physick," which before his day
were more commonly spelled as we
spell them now. "Labor" and "honor"
and "favOr" irritate many readers,
who style them Americanisms. But it
was Dr. Johnson who introduced the
unnecessary, thought perhaps, rather
more graceful "u." and who wrote, in
addition, "authour" and "errour" and
"governour." The last spelling has
only dropped out of the English Prayer Book in the twentieth century. How
many church-goers have noticed tho
change?—London Spectator.

Zam-Buk Healed Them Inside Two
Have you some emption, or sore,
or. ulcer, or wound, on any part of
your body'whicli has hitherto ^refused to close, no matter how treated ?
If so, that is a case for Zam-Buk
the great herbal balm. The herbal
saps and essences in this balm are
so powerful that they can heal the
worst cases of chronic sores, ulcerB,
blood poison and skin diseases. Here
are  proofs  of  this:

enough for your remedy, and I toll
everyone to be sure and keep Zam-
Buk in their house."
' Mrs. _S. J. Holden, of 3<? West
Hnnnali St., Hamilton, says: "My
little girl had a running sore on her
leg which defied all treatment. 1 applied Zam-Buk. and iri about a week's

stinate sore on her temple. It had

time, but would break ont again.
*am-Buk healed it permanently, and
it shows no sign whatever of return
Similar grateful testimony is to
hand from men and women in all
parts of Canada. Zam-Buk
is a sure cure for all skin diseases
and injuries, such ns cuts, burns,

life this preparation has entirely
cured me of this trouble, and of
late years I have found it unnecessary to use any medicine whatever.
I feel it my duty to add this statement to the many others which I

Mr. VV. Ferguson, blacksmith, Trenton, Ont.. says: "In my work I am

IN small houses there seems very
little room for bookcases. The walls
are so broken uo with doors and
windows that the few feet of wall
.pace remaining ls needed for the necessary pieces of furniture, such as tables, i
pianos, sofas or desks. And yet, with
Just a little careful planning and contriving,   room could  probablv be made
i'or a hundred  books.
First, consider the mantelpiece. This
often affords great opportunity for little book shelves, to be built on either
side, and also above It. And how cozy
this is, for what Is more homelike and
Inviting than books and a lire? Besides, an ugly mantel can often be completely transformed ln this way.
Now turn your attention to the window.   If the window sill ls not less thai
two or three feet from i.ie ground,-the
ledge can be extended and bookshelves
built beneath it. One of the accompanying illustrations shows a window done
In this way.
Sometimes dry shelves can be built
with great effect about a door or window. They should not be more than
nine ot ten inches wide. Books should
be put on the shelves on either side of
the door or window, and pottersr placed
on the shelf across the top.
A cozy corner can have shelves built
above it, but take care that they are
high enough, so that you will not bump
your head against them, and also that
they are firmly put up and cannot topple down on some unsuspecting person.
The old-fashioned hanging shelves are
pretty and also economizers of space.
These look particularly well just above
i desk or writing t.iWe.    Some of ib-
', prettiest effects can be.had with Iitt!_
;, bookcases that stand out In the room.
A bookcase like the sketch shown is

shelves and a plant or vase of flowers

of  course,   be  kept   In  bookcases  with
.glass doors  to protect them  from  the-
dust; but, unless Ihey are particularly
. good ones, shelves without doors are the
'most decorative,   as  the colors  of  the
*N books show  up better. , If the  shelves
•' have little curtains on them, which can
be drawn logether when the room is not
_ being ' used   or  at   sweeping  time,   the
books will keep  fresh and  clean  for ex.
long time. Curtains can improve a room.

which hangs In pretty folds, and of rich-
harmonious  colorings.    There   are   lota
of delightful  things  to be  had  in tha
shops, and .tt ridiculously small prices.
Cotton pongee, cotton crepe, mercerize —
cotton, sateen and eolienne are all pretty  and suitable for bookcase curtains,
and not one of them costs more than 25
ctnis a yard. i
It Is often prettier and cheaper to
have bookcases with curtains, because
when curtains are used very cheap
- shelves can be put up. In fact, an operate, wilh three or four shelves put In
it, when siained, answers the purposo
beautifully. Or several soap boxes can
be piled together, in one way or another, and siained. When curtained,
they look most imposing, so much so
that no one would dare to breathe ot
their humble oiigln.
Theie is much lhat can be said on tbe
arrangement uf books, regarding their
contents, size and coloring, but I shall,
only touch on this subject, and suggest
that when arranging a shelf of books,
you take care not to put one bright
yellow one among a row of deep reds
or browns. It would be too glaring and
conspicuous. We should not be able to
notice any one book more than another.;
They should all be a background. And!
so if there must be a bright yellow onel
ln the row, lead up to it with sofct
greens and tans, so that tt cannot pro-,,
claim itself above all the others. Few«
realize what a' factor books can be to a-
room in their coloring as well as theIri
oractlcal value.

■   When Contagious Diseases Attack, the Baby
u i m,   A Talk About Measles and Their Treatment ■ —   -
By Dr. Emelyn L. Coolidge
Copyright. IMS, by A. 6. Barnes _ Co.
OF ALL the contagious diseases,
measles Is perhaps the most likely to be contracted if the baby Is
exposed. After the exposure generally
ten or fourteen days elapse before the
first symptoms appear.
The flrst thing noticed usually by the
mother ls that the child seems to have
a bad cold; he sneezes and coughs, his
eyes will often be quite inflamed and
a watery discharge will come from both
eyes and nose; there ls usually also
some fever and fretfulness.
It Is at thjs stage of the disease that
other children are most apt to contract
H—in fact, nine out of every ten will
take the disease if exposed at this time.
If a doctor Is now called In, he will
often be able to see little spots In the
mouth, which appear befdre the rash on
the body can be seen. These spots will
confirm the diagnosis and are often of
great value for this reason.
Generally by the fourth day the rash
is seen, first on "ie face, which appears
unite swollen; then the neck, from
where it rapidly spreads to all parts of
the body. This rash is bright red and
in blotches,leaving little crescent-shaped
areas of white skin between the patcfiee:
it is a little raised above the surface o!
the skin, and usually remains at J'j
height about three days; then It begli «
ta fade, leaving first the face, where iv
begun, and then the rest ei the body, sf
that after three days more It can hardly
be seen.
Just before and while the rash Is out
the fever Is often quite high, and the
child feels very sick; but as it fades the
fever grows less, and the baby ls more
comfortable. Next the skin begins to
peel off in very fine scales like bran.
The child should be kept away from all
other children at least two weeks after
all peeling has ceased. This Is the usual
picture that measles presents; but there
are forms much more severe and again
other forms are lighter, the rash being
faint and only out for a few hours.
The treatment of an uncomplicated
case of measles is simple The child
should be at once Isolated as soon as the
disease can possibly be diagnosed; he
should be put to bed. and kept warm
but not hot. The room should be kept
at an even temperature of 70 to 72 degrees P.; but plenty of fresh air should
be allowed to enter, for nothing is worse
than a close sick room. The light should
bo subdued on account of the inflammation of the baby's eyes. While the fever
lasts the usual food should be diluted
one-half, and then strength very gradually increased until the baby Is again
taking his usual formula.
Great care should be taken of the eyes
and mouth. They should be washed
three or four times a day vrith a saturated solution of boric acid. Every
day the baby should have a warm
sponge bath (given under cover of a
blanket), and then be rubbed all over
with vaseline.    This will help to allay
the Itching which ls often present, and
also prevent the Bcales of skin from
flying about.
lf the child Is exceedingly restless and
has a very high fever, an ice cap should
be placed on his head and a lillle alcohol added to the water with which he is
The room in which a tflby Is isolated
during a contagious dlsei.se should be
large, bright and airy, having an open
fireplace If possible. If 1'ie room has
no paper oh the walls, so much the better. It should have no carpet on the
floor or any upholstered furniture of
any kind, nor any other unnecessary articles which cannot be destroyed when
the disecse is over.
Only the doctor and the people who
take cere of the baby should be allowed
in the room, and they should wear cotton clothing. It is milch wiser not to al-'
low the mother or nurse to mingle with
the rest of the family In any wuy; but
when a mother must do her own housework as well as take care of the sick
baby, she cannot be absolutely isolated.
While in the sick room she should wear
a large cap which completely covers her
hair, and a cotton garment of some
kind that can be easily slipped on and
off. A long linen duster Is often convenient. These should be kept at the door
of the sick room and worn while In the
room only. S)ie should also carefully
wash her face and hands before leaving
the room.
The other children in llie family should
not be sent to school
OUT in a certain little suburban
railroad station Is a small room
built under the1 train shed, probably for the storing of an excess
of luggage, or for certain classes of express packages.
But once a wefck during flower season
that room i_f put to another use, as passengers' who flash past the station in
morning trains can testify. The flower
mission is at work.
Since early morning the girls have
been at work scouring the fields for all
sorts ot hardy flowers—the "weeds" the
farmers despise are to be the glory cf
hospital and, tenement.
About 10 o'clock they meet in that little  room of  the, train  shed,  its sliding
doors  pulled   Wide   open.   In   there  the
work   is  thoroughly   systematized.   One
girl sorts flowers,  putting the different
groups   into   pails   of   water   until   the
bouquets can be made up, and then replacing them with the finished bunches.
One  girl   cuts   cord   into   comfortable
lengths—there's    no    frantic    grabbing
after scissors,   no  wasting  of  time   In
waiting     turns—antl     goes     over     the
bunches as they leave each girl's hands,
trimming   off, any    dangling    ends    of
,    All the rest make bouquets as if for
i dear life.
> . Cheer for the Sick
And, as they are girls and young and
healthy enough to have a little harmless
vanity, they make quaint pictures of
themselves for their work, putting on
great aprons, contrived after irtistB'
Ideas, and, rolling their sleeves up,
showing arms coated with healthy tan.
As soon as ever the flowers are tied
up they are packed, damp and dripping,
'in huge, pasteboard boxes or ln hampers
and are safely seen on board the train
headed for the heart of town.
At the other end is nnother group
waiting to pounce upon those hampers.
Each Is armed with a basket; the
bunoties are quickly divided, and the
work of distribution is begun.
Certain girls make for the hospitals—
;it's doubly hard to be sick in hot
.weather, and a breath of the fields la
like a tonic. Through the wards they
go, giving a cheery word with each

blooming with young girls whose wort
it should be.
For the past few years an effort has
been made to have the idea of the flower
mission broaden to take in all the llttle
outdoor things that are the treasures of
childhood. Shells ami birds' nests, and'
lichens; milk-weed pods and cat-tails;
flower seeds, pine cones—a hundred antl
one things that nre wonderful gifts to
make children starving for outdoors and
its hallmarks, and yet which are to be
had, by you, for the taking on your vacation.
A man who discovered the famous,
"walking fern" while on a two days'
rest In the mountains, took up roots,
packed them In wet moss and carried
them down to the city for three or four
fern enthusiasts. Being a fairly rare
variety, his gift wns received eagerly.
It seems tt little thing to do to keep
eyes and ears open for an opportunity
to pass a bit of nature on to some one
who can't otherwise have It. But It
bears its own reward, not only in an
ethical way from the consclousriss of
having helped some one, but from the
added interest and knowledge gained by
the acquired habit of noticing.
If the work of distributing proves too-
great an undertaking, the "treasures"
can he sent to public school kindergartens, to settlement schools and to
the various homes for settlement
Being Ready for Any emergency
SO—EBCDY with a genius for refor
matlon ought to eome along nnd establish a training school with a
course in getting ready—nnt for
uny particular thing, but Just for the
emergencies that will crop out.
Every now and then you happen on
some one self-taught In lhat wny—some
one who Is always ready, no mntter
what comes up.
Back ln our history stand out vividly
the figures of "minute men." We need
ropro of them In present-day life to be
ready for the great emergencies thut so
often find men wanting.
Emergency girls are ns rar« ond as
