'     CHAPTER VI.
But to return to Oscar Glendenning.
From the moment the train started
ha began to feel more composed; yet,
at every station where the cars stopped he expected to see some one enter and search around a moment for
some one; then, seeing him, lay his
hand heavily on his shoulder, saying,
''You are Oscar Glendenning. Vou
are wanted in New York, You must
come with ma."
On sped the train by day and by
night, until the northland lay far behind him and he had reached the
land of flowers. But not even yet
had he escaped the dire fear of being
pursued. As he neared New Orleans
the cars were packed to their full
capacity, and it occurred to him
what he had almost forgotten before,
and that was that the Mardi Gras
festival was at its height.
A handsome, courteous gentleman
whom he met in the smoking-car, and
whom Glendenning afterward learned
was a Mr. Haffcrby, of New York,
who was on a pleasure trip to Mexico with his pretty little wife, tried to
draw Glendenning into conversation
by giving him wonderful descriptions
of the festival, and asking him to
join their party to "do", the sights,
if ho intended stopping over in Now
Orleans to see the great Mardi Gras.
"Perhaps it will bo better for me
to go with them," he concluded to
himself, "for obvious reasons."
Tho pretty little wife joined her
genial husband in the invitation. She
quite idolized him, as all wives
should, . and was only too pleased
that he had found a pleasant companion to add to their merry little
party, especially as their number was
just one gentleman short, one having boen recalled by telegram wben
half-way on their trip.
They had made arrangements beforehand for accommodations at one
of the best hotels, and had paid j
quite a little fortune for the exclusive '
use of the entire balcony for thoir
party to view the grand pageant by
night.
Those who have seen the beautiful
city in its gala dress on just such an
occasion—gay-hucd banners, rivaling
the rainbow's hues in their coloring
of rose, orange, purple and flaming i
gold, flaunting on the breeze and '
coquetting with tho sunlight from
casement to house-top, the whole city
alive with mirth and bustle—will not
Wonder that for a time Oscar Glendenning almost forgot the terrible
cloud that hung over him—th- sword
that was suspended above his head by
a single hair, and ready to fall upon
hiin at any moment.
The grand feature of the festival is
the wonderful moonlight street
parade. The wholo city turns out en
masse to view the brilliant pageant,
Bo glittering, unique and gorgeous,
that throngs the thoroughfare in tho
grand, bewildering parade.
Mrs. Raffcrby, pretty as a picture
and plump as a partridge, 6at in the
centre of the balcony, with four pretty girls grouped about her and her
husband leaning over the back of hor
chair; and more than onco tho girls
glanced askance at the handsomo
stranger sitting to the right of thom,
wondering why he did not try to
make himself more • agreeable to
them. i
"I have been the wholo world over,
and I have never seen anything in
any country that goes ahead of
this," remarked Mr. Rafferby, adding, "Dear me, I wish so many of
these beauty-worshippers would not
continue to gaze up here at my wife
until a bend in tha route hides her
from their view. I think I shall soon
be tempted to hang a large placard
around her neck, with this inscription
en it:
" 'Spare Your Adoring Glances.
SHE'S   MARRIED.'
Wouldn't that be a capital idea?" he
asked, quizzically, turning to Laura
Agnes Paige, a pretty, slender young
girl who was sitting by his side, ono
white, rounded arm resting on tho
balcony railing,  and her dark, curly
head leaning on it, her big blue eyes
feasting on the scene below.
"Why don't you tell him you are
too busily engaged in sight-seeing just
now to pay attention to his questions?" whispered a slender, fnlr-
haircd young man who leaned over
her, and so near her that his fair
moustache grazed for an instant tho
warm,  red cheek.
(Pretty Mifes Paige laughed, nnd thnt
laugh interested Glendenning. He
turned and looked at her. She was
certainly clever and piquant, and
Glendenning felt irresistibly drawn
toward her and envious of her companion, Mr, Raymond.
"If I wero anything but whnt I
am, I might win such a young girl's
V»vo," he thought, "But, pshaw!
>hy   ruminate   oyer,. .jmpqSKjb.li.tji'j?
A man can riot change his Whole' ila-
ture even for a fair girl's sake;" and
he turned away his head again and
paid strict attention to the parade.
Was there any one in that vast
throng who was searching for him?
he wondered. Ah! surely not. Yet
he was never freo from the terrible
fear of it. He felt hunted, by night
ahd by day.
King's in their golden chariots
nodded their crowned heads; plumed
knights bowed gracefully right and
left in their saddles as their charges
pranced by beneath the gilded banners and gay flags.
I First came the pageant of the My-
stick Krewo of Comus, of tho legen-
. dary history of Japan, the marvelous
country of beautiful and poetic idealities. First came Comus, the divinity,
daring, handsome, gallant, fair and
brave, drawn through the lambient
air by milk-white storks with widespread wings, glancing back toward
Nippon, the land of the r._ing sun,
gorgeous in the gleam of the electric
lights, and, over all, the crimson,
gold and purple glow of the rockets,
bursting stars and colored fires that
enst their bright glare to the very
heavens.
Next cam? the monarch and first
Mikado, Otersase, seated on a gorgeous throne surrounded by gigantic
fans; in front of him the jugglers
waiting to do his bidding.
Then followed, in a beautiful chariot, Izanigi and Izanani, representing Adam and Eve, standing upon a
rainbow called the Bridge of Heaven
—overy one knew tho legend. While
standing there one day, so the story
runs, looking nt the beauty of the
universe, Izanigi dipped his jeweled
spear into the clouds below, and the
drops of the rainbow that fell down,
down into space formed an islnnd
which is now the earth.
Then came the Sun Queen, quickly
1 followed in the vast moving panorama by Yanoonna,. ,tho Spirits of
| Night.
1 There were wild shouts of delight
as this wonderful chariot, in which
twinkled the moon, the stars, nnd
i comets, with the graceful young
queen, her pet owl on her shoulder,
whirled into view knd passed the balcony and tho golden rods. The Ruler of the Sea, Hiruka, was hailed, ,
too, with the wildest enthusiasm.
And the people held their breath
when Iononre the Avenger bursts upon their gaze, heralded by great colored fires rolled slowly into view.
The wrathful god of war and all
terrors looked neither to the right
nor left. Forked lightning sprung
from his hands toward the four winds
and from the rock upon which he
sat, striking downward to the earth,
while around him, awaiting his commands, wore six of the forty-seven
great Romans known throughout the
world as the highest type of loyalty
and devotion in avenging the death
of their ruler.
The home of Benton the lentlc, and
Usame, tho charming Sun Goddess,
and Inari Sami, the Goddess of
Food, followed  in  rapid  succession.
And the great crewd cheered, and
"bravo!" sprung from every lip as
Tachibane-Hime, the idol of flowers,
swept gracefully next in lipo. Glendenning instantly recalled tho legend
of it, but it was Miss Paige who refreshed the memories of the others
about it.
"Why, how strange that any one
could forget so sweet a legend!" sho
cried. "Don't you remember, it was
said that among all the women of
the world nono was more beautiful
than Tachlbane-Himo? Although innocent and lovely, she was the victim of jealousy and rumor, and was
finally brought before the tribunal.
When asked to defend against tho
charges of her enemies, so great was
her timidity that she could not
speak, nor could she understand ot
what she was accused. She had passed all her life with flowers and birds,
and suddenly the powers of nature
that had learned to love her come to
her defense. The red roses on the
boughs turned white, the lilies surrounded her, upholding their lances,
which changed to blades of snow. A
white dove lighted on her hand, and
the sun goddess, as a proof of her
favor, caused a cloud of snow to fall
from heaven."
It struck Glendenning as he looked
down into the sweet, fair, innocent,
dpturned face of Tachibane-Hine, as
she rodo slowly past the balcony,
how much she resembled fair Nannie,
the young girl living across the way
from Olive Knecland's home, and
who was Olive's best-loved friend.
Yes, she looked exceedingly like fair,
dainty Nannie.
Glendenning bowed his head on his
hand and looked no moro. Ho wished that memory of the carnival to bo
the ono to linger ia hia mind forever,
and ho told himself then and there,
if he wero over to love a young girl,
sho would have to havo just such a
face    as   tho   lovely,   innocent  Tachi-

Bow Wonld Ton Like Thla Batter t
The Moor prepares butter in an
original way and gets a different taste
from the usual one. Fresh butter ("si-
Wda," as he calls lt), as known by us,
be despises and uses only for cooking.
It must be old lf it ts to be liked. After
it has lain in a hole In the ground for
some years and has got a certain appearance lt becomes a delicacy. To
make butter a goatskin is turned Inside out It is filled with milk, bound
tight and tied to a tree. There it ls
beaten backward and forward till the
butter Is made. That ls why you cannot get butter In Morocco without hairs

on pieces of wood and the maker goes
to sell lt Possible buyers lift the
dirty cover, put In their fingers and
take, out a taste and lf the goods do

salesman pursues his way.
Fair Rosamund'a Bower.
Henry HI.'s chief garden was at
Woodstock, but be was not the originator of it, as there had been a garden
tbnro ln the time of the second Henry.
In It was the labyrinth which conceal
ed the "bower" made famous by the
tragic fate of the fair Rosamond. A
halo of romance and mystery hangs
around this hiding place, but ln reality
labyrinths were by no means uncommon. There ls evidence of the existence of labyrinths'In very early times,
and they presumably suggested the
maze of more moderu date. The flrst
labyrinths were winding paths cut In
tbe ground, and tbe survival of them ls
still traceable ln several places In England. Of these Saffron Walden, wltb
Its encircling ditch, Is tbe most striking example. Camden describes one
existing ln his time ln Dorsetshire,
which went by the name of Troy town
or Julian's bower.—"A History ef Ger-
de-liur .In England "
Greek Flre.
Greek flre, which bad several other
names—wild flre, liquid flre, wet flre
and flre rain—descriptive of Its de-
structlveness, ls said to bave been the
most destructive engine of war previous to gunpowder. Discovered by
Calllnlcus, a Syrian, lt was flrst used
In the siege of Constantinople, 673-78,
and at Mecca, 090.
Facte In Animal Breeding.
Professor O, Llebscher, director ot
the agricultural Institute at Gottingen,
Germany, Bays the most Important
facts for the animal breeder to undei^
stand are:
1. That the more valuable the parents are the greater ls the possibility
of securing good offspring.
2. That the more dissimilar the parents the more numerous will be the
new forms resulting from sexual propagation.
il. That the more easily alike they
are the larger will be tbo proportion
of the offspring having a harmonious
blending of the parental character)*

ENTERPRISING BOTANISTS.
Effect* .f the Great Revival mt tm*
•Ixteeath Century.
In tbe great literary and scientific revival tbat took place ln tbe sixteenth
century botany made a fresh departure. The discovery of America bad
brought a vast number of new plant*
to Europe, and their study doubtless
•Umulated the more complete study of
those of tbe old world. The great commercial activity of the century must
also bave had Its Influence. Ships wer*
bringing new products from all parts
and among these plants were not forgotten. But from whatever cause It
arose, the great Impulse and renewed
activity lu the discovery and study of
plants was quite remarkable. They
produced a large body of students,
whose labors were unwearied, and a
wonderful amount of botanical literature.
Among those students were such
men as Lolncer, L'Obel, Caesalplnus,
L'Ecluse, Mattloli, Caspar and John
Bauhin, Conrad Gesner, Poua, Leonard, Fuchs, Prosper Alplnus, Dodoen*
and many others. And these men were

Men With Women. Vote**.
Generally speaking, races living at
high altitudes have weaker and more
highly pitched voices than those living
In regions where the supply of oxygen
Is more plentiful. Thus among the
Indians living ou the plateaus between
the ranges of the Andes, at an elevation of from ten to fourteen thousand
feet, the men have voices like women
and the women like children, and their
singing ls a shrill monotone. The Australian native has a weak voice, but
a knack of sending it a long distance,
and the lowest tribes of African bush-
men also possess weak voices. Of all
human beings lt would seem that the
dwarf race discovered by Stanley in
central Africa have, In point of volume
and compass, the weakest of human
voices, and this is only what one
would expect from the feebleness of
their physique generally.

Price and Imaginations
Housewives are apt to judge tb*
qunlity ef groceries by the price paid
for them. As an illustration of this a
grocer tells the following story: "I
had two qualities of flour—one fine and
the other poor. One day I accidentally
sold one for the other. My customer*,
wbo paid a high price for the poor
quality, said that It had given entire
satisfaction, while those who hnd received the fln* hour for a low price

MAMMOTH  IS A MYTH.
Perforated  Indian  Skull — Intel-eating
Word Paintings on Tomagami Rooks.
Mr. David Boyle, superintendent ol
the Provincial Museum, has Just returned te Toronto from Moore township
In I—mbton County. He found the report about the mammoth remains
said to have been discovered there, to
be Incorrect. He oould find no traces ot
such an animal.
Mr. Boyle made some excavations ln
the Indian Reserve, however, and picked ap some relics of value. The most
Interesting- was a human skull perforated on the apex with a clean cut hale,
which must have been bored with some
instrument. There are a tew other specimens of a similar description ln th*
museum
"These holes may have been bored ln
the skulls before irath," said Mr. Boyle,
"ln which case they were no doubt
made to allow some evil spirit to escape, as Tn the case of one stricken
with apoplexy. But lt ls quite possible
the holes were made after death, and
would then be made for the purpose
of hanging the skulls up.
"The natives of Peru," he continued,
"had made considerable progress tn
the art of surgery, and skulls have
been found showing clear evidence ot
trepanning, the hole* being made with
sharp pieces of flint."
Interesting specimen* ef Indian
word painting were copied and
brought to the museum last week by
Mr. W. H. C. Phillips, who made a trip
to the Temagaml district for the purpose. There are two sets of paintings,
four specimens In each set. One was
found painted on the rocks on the north
shore of Diamond Lake, the other at the
routheni extremity of Lady Evelyn
Lake.
They bear close resemblance te th*
paintings discovered on the rocks of
Lake Massanog, Addington County,
and published la Mr. Boyle's archaeological report for 1904-5. No one has
yet succeeded la deciphering these Inscriptions.

National Association Formed to Promote Them In Cltlea. -ex
A generation ago the environment of
the child was different from that now
to be found ln large cities. Now a
third of the population is crowded into
the cities, and the narrow streets, lined
with towering buildings, have become
canyons where sunlight comes ln glints
and where blasts of air laden with pestilential dust smother and blind the
child amid the dangers from heavy
trucks, swiftly moving automobiles aud
the rushing of trolley cars.
"The city fathers fain would save the
beauty of the city by more or less Infrequent patches of green," says Seth
Thayer Stewart In the prospectus of
the Playground Association of America,
of which Theodore Roosevelt is honorary president and Jacob Iliis honorary
vice president, "but even these are covered with warnings of keep off the
grass, and the city child, without the
possibilities of outdoor physical development, wonders whether the progress
of civilization ls not conspiring with
the arm of the law to prevent the natural development of his Instinct for
play and love of nature, and even to
crush out the possibilities ef child life
ln larger cities."
The object of the Playground association ls to bring about the establishment and maintenance of playgrounds
in the larger cities where children and
young men may expend their physical
energy In a way that will be beneficial
to themselves. It believes that the
maintenance of playgrounds 1b not a
matter of ornamental philanthropy, but
a part of the system of education of
the state necessary to the development
of the whole nature and not of the
mind only, and that lt ls the duty of
the state to maintain such space, place
and opportunity In playgrounds and ln
the curriculum of the schools for all
Its growing citizens.
"Believing," says the prospectus,
"that ln a democracy the tide and tone
of life should be kept full and high
and that upon the physical well being
of Its people largely depends the well
being of the nation, that the stress and
strain of our Industrial age, the artificial life of crowded centers and the
Isolation of the country tend to nervous disorder and breakdown, and believing that play Is Instinctive and
tends to develop the whole man and
the physical and moral qualities necessary to high character, thus maintaining the working power at Its beet, the
Playground Association of America affirms the necessity for place, space and
opportunity tn the open air tn order to
Insure 'life and happiness.'"
Dr. Luther Gullck of New Tork city
ls the active president of the association. New York has already spent
about $15,000,000 on small parks with
playgrounds, and the Seward park
recreation center, in tbe Ghetto, alone
cost $1,800,000.—New York Tribune.
A Trick of Sound,
Why did Princess Enn of Battenberg
after ber marriage to the king of Spain
choose to be known as Queen Victoria?
A writer says: "Her grandmother
made Victoria a name of good omen,
but Alexandria, not Victoria, was
the flrst of the late British queen's
baptismal names and was abandoned
because Russian names are without
sweet associations for English ears.
Nor would Eugenie be very agreeable
now to Spaniards, with whom their
French neighbors are not universally
popular. Ena ls, however, a name as
uncommlttlngly International ss Victoria. It might very well have been
the young queen's, too, but for a mere
trick of sound. When her marriage
was arranged her brothers began to
call her ln jest 'Quinine, ah!' and thus
gave Its teased bearer a prejudice
against the conjunction of her new
title with her old name."
Fingman'i Tree.
A living and leafy monument In the

the Rocky mountains or see tbem from
the east. Pangman was ln the employ
of the Northwest Fur company. Ue
ascended the Saskatchewan and turning his face to the westward he beheld
the white mass—the Rocky mountains.
He afterward penetrated them, but the
tree where he carved his name marks
the spot of his first vision. For 125
years lt has been known as Pangman's
tree, and still stands In spite of the

A MOTHIIR'S STORY.
She Tells How >r. William's Pink
Pills Savled Her Daughter.
Anaemia is th- doator's name for
bloodlessness. It is an ailment that
effects almost every girl in her teens.
Womanhood makes new demands upon her blood supply that she cannot
meet. Month after month her
strength, her very life, are being
drained away. No food and no care
can do her any good. No common,
medicine can save her. She needs
new blood. New blood is ithe one
thing—the only thing—that can make
a healthy woman of her. Dr. William's Pink Pills actually make new
blood. That is why they never fail
to cure anaemia. That is how they
save from an early grave scores of
young girls whose health and strength
depend upon their blood supply. Mrs.
Anson Clark, Arden, Ont., says:—'
"Dr. William's Pin'k Pills have been a
great blessing in my family as two of
my daughters have used them with
marked success. When my eldest
daughter was about seventeen she began to fail in health. Her blood
seemed to have turned to water. She
was troubled with headaches and dizziness; the least exertion would cause
her heart to palpitate violently and
she could not walk up stairs without
stopping to rest. She doctored for upwards of a year, and the doctor said
she did not have as much blood in her
body ns an ordinarily healthy person
would have in one arm. The doator's
treatment did not do her a particle
of good. Sfce seemed slowly fading
away. Then she became afflicted
with salt rheum and her hands were
iilinoflt raw. About this time a neighbor advised the use of Dr. William's
Pink Pills and she began taking them.
After using the pills for a few weeks
wo could see an improvement, her appetite began to improve and a trace
of color oame to her cheeks. She
continued taking the pills niiltil she
had use_ thirteen boxes when she was
as well and strong as ever, every trace
of both anaemia and salt rheum had
disappeared and she has since enjoyed
the/ best of health.Later on my youngest daughter aged fifteen began to
lose her health, but thanks to our __-
perience with Dr. William's Pink
Pills we knew where to look for a cure
and after using four boxes of pills
sho was all right again. I have also
used' the pills mysolf for nervous
troubles  with   complete   success.

Rev. Hugh Black.
The Rev. Hugh Black has decided to
go to America, and Edinburgh has
metaphorically put on mourning, says
M. A P. It Is almost as difficult to picture an Edinburgh without Hugh Black
as without Arthur's Seat or Scott's
Monument Holyrood or the Castle.
And yet he has been In Edinburgh for
barely a decade. When I was In the
Scottish capital eight or nine years ago
(writes a correspondent) lt was as much
the fashion to go to Free St. Oeorge's
to hear Hugh Black preach as It Is ln
London to visit the Opera on a Melba
night. Everyone went, even an occasional Roman Catholic! Lord Rosebery waa among the young preacher's
staunchest admirers, and had him at
Dalmeny as an honored guest when
Royalty sat at the board. No one except a Kubellk or a Paderewskl ever
aroused more fervent admiration ln the
hearts of womankind. He was not unlike a musical genius ln appearance,
pal», slim, and of no great height, with
the face of an enthusiast and abundant
hair. Like most of the Scots clerics who
have achieved fame, Mr. Black sprang
from the people, and he has never been
ashamed of his humble beginnings ln
beautiful Rothsay. As tn the case of
tho celebrated Father Burke (who was
fond of gaily declaring that he belonged to the "best-bread'' Burkes ln Gal-
way), Hugh Black's father was a baker.
While still at CDllege in Glasgow his
reputation as a preacher was made, and
there was almost a religious war when
Free St. Qeorge'a tried to woo him irom
his first congregation ln Paisley. He
married a Paisley girl, and his Edinburgh congregation came out nobly In
the way of furnishing his house for him
and presenting a handsome cheque.
Some comment was aroused by the fact
that ln his early days as a benedict,
Mr. Black used to announce his wife's
"At Hims" days from the pulpit, but
lt was done with the kindliest and best
of motives. The gifted pastor writes
as well as he speaks, and he ls certain
to fill with distinction his professional
chair ln a New York theological seminary.

"By Medicine Life May Be Prolonged."—So wrote Shakespeare
nearly three hundred years ago. It
is so to-day. Medicine will prolong
life, but b_ sure of the qualities of the
medicine. Life is prolonged by keeping the body free from disease.. Dr.
Thomas' Eclectric Oil used internally
will cure coughs and colds, eradicate
asthma, overcome croup and give
strength to the respiratory organs.
Give it a trial.
Canada's wheat crop totalled, 1905,
9-V.i million bushels—84 millions being
from the west.
Minard's Liniment Cures Burns, etc.
Canada ranks tenth among the
world's wheat growing countries. The
wheat crop is nearly double tha. of
the United Kingdom.
Appetite comes with eating
and each square of crisp de-
liciousness seems but to make
room for more.
Mooney's Perfection
Cream Sodas
are different from any other
cracker. Nothing heavy or
doughy about them but so light
and crisp that they are transparent. Mooney's biscuit* will
be a regular dish on your table
if you will try them.

The Story of a Medicine.
Its name—"Golden Medical Discovery**
was suggested by one of Its most Important and valuable Ingredients — Golden
Seal root.
Nearly torty years ago, Dr. Pierce dls-
eovored that he could, by the use of pure,
triple-refined glycerine, aided by a certain degreo of constantly maintained
heat and with the aid of apparatus and
appliances designed for that purpose, extract from our most valuable native medicinal roots their curative properties
much bettor than by tho use of alcohol,
so generally employed. So the now world-
famed "Golden Medical Discovery," fon
the cure of weak stomach. Indigestion, on
dyspepsia, torpid liver, or biliousness and
kindred derangements wus llrst mado, aa
lt ever since has boon, without a particle
of alcohol in Its mako-un.
A glance at tho .ull list of Its Ingredients, printed on evory bottle-wrapper,
will snow that tt Is made from the most
valuable mndlcinal roots found growing
in our American forests. All these Intents havo received tho strongest en-
"ment from the loading medical ex-
teachers and writers on Materia
. -a who recommend them as the very
u_.t remedies for the diseases for which
•Golden Medical Discovery" Is advised.
A little book of these endorsements has
been compiled by Dr. R. V. Pleroe, of
Buffalo, N. Y., and will be mailed free to
any ono asking same fay pooka) card, or
Intter addressed to tho Doctor as above.
From these endorsements,, copied from
standard medical books of all tho din-rent schools of practice, it will bo found
thst the Ingredients composing the"Golo>
en Medical Discovery" arc advised not
only for the once of tno above mentioned
diseases, but also for the cure of all catarrhal, bronchial and throat affections,
fecompatnod with catarrhal discharges,
hoarseness,   aoro   throat,   lingering,   or
ha»g-on-—raehs.  and alt thoso wasting
affections which. If not promptly and
properly treated are liable to terminate
ln consumption.   Take Dr. Plerco's Discovery In time and persevere In its wte
nntll you give it a fair trial and It Is not
likely to disappoint.   Too much must nnt
be expected of It.   It will not, perform
mlraclog.   It will not euro consumption
In Its ndvnncod stages.  No nmdlciiii) will.    X

ABLE STATE DOCUMENT
REPORT   OF   ROYAL  COMMISSION
CONDEMNS RITUALISM.
Members  Represented   Every  Shade  of
Church Opinion, But Every One of
Them Concurred In the Report — A
,   Most Unusual Thing In Church Con-
,   cessions—Large Spirit Rune Through
Its Every Tissue.
Upwards of two years ago the Balfour
Government, taking cognizance of the
outcry against ritualism, appointed the
Royal Commission on Ecclesiastical
.Discipline, "to enquire Into the alleged
prevalence of breaches or neglect of the
law relating to the conduct of Divine
Borvice ln the Church of England, and
tn consider the existing powers and
procedure applicable to such irregularities, and to make such recommendations as may be deemed requisite for
dealing with the aforesaid matters."
Sir Michael Hicks-Beach, now Viscount
St. Aldwyn, was chairman. The other
members were tho Archbishop of Can- !
torbury, the Marquis of Northampton,
the Bishop of Oxford, 'Sir FrancIb
-Jeune, Sir John Kennaway, Right Hon.
John G. Talbot, M. P., Sir Samuel
Hoare, M. P., Sir Edward Clarke, Sir
Ii. T. Dlbdln, Judge of the Provincial
Court of Canterbury and York; the
present Bishop of Gloucester; Kev. T.
*W. Drury, principal of Ridley Hall,
Cambridge; G. W. Proth?ro, editor of
tha Quarterly Review, 'and George
Harweod. The death of Sir Francla
Jeune (Lord St. Heller) was followed
toy the appointment of Lord Alver- j
et.one. The report of the. commission,
sifter being awaited with much lmpa- I
tii'nee, has at last been Issued, and a
most able state document lt ls. Those
to whom its conclusions are least acceptable must be won by Its large
spirit, exhaustive research, historical
perspective, clear reasoning, and literary form. It Is the work of great
■churchmen, statesmen, jurists and historians. Though every shade of Church
opinion was represented on the commission, ail Its members concurred tn
the report, a thing unusual In Church
commissions.
Against Ritualism.
For most of the practices usually described aa ritualistic the report shows
that there Is no authority. Such of the
unwarranted practices as are of no
doctrinal significance or symbolize
teaching legally declared not to be repugnant to the Articles or formularies
of the Church of England, the commission would tolerate, though only under
.conditions of efficient regulation and
with careful regard for the opinions
and feelings of congregations. The
report—apart from the evidence and appendices, which have yet to be published — ls a very large one, a close
digest of It covering a page and a half
of The London Times. The recommendations would take up more than a
solid column of this paper.
Illegal Practices.
Tt Is advised that 34 practices which
the commission And to be illegal be
prohibited by authority. These are: In
the matter of vestments, Conflteor and
last Gospel, ceremonial mixing of the
chalice, use of wafers, Lavabo, hiding
of the manual acts, sign of the cross,
Sanotus bell, Incense, portable lights,
Altar lights, holy water, blessing of
.palms, Tenebrae, washing of altars,
Faschal candle, stations of the cross,
observance of days not appointed by
itlie Prayer Book to be observed, celebrations without communicants, children's eucharlsts, use of the canon of
thi> mass, altar cards, omission of the
Invitation, omission of the Creed and
Gloria In Excelsis, elevation, genuflexion, "Ecce Agnus Del," reservation,
mass of the prae-sanctlfled, benediction, with and without sacrament, the
observance of days either excluded
from the calendar In the Prayer Book
or Introduced since the Reformation
into the calendar of the Roman
Church, hymns to the Blessed Virgin,
Intercession of saints, veneration ot
Images, veneration of roods.
Stoles, Confessions, Etc.
The most common deviations from
tho standard (the Advertisements of
1566) In the matter of vestments are
-the following: The use of the stole,
•which ls nowhere sanctioned by the
Ornaments Rubric; the dlbrefirl of
tlie direction for the regular use of the
cope ln cathedrals; the use of euchar-
Istlc vestments or the alb, amlcc, clia-
' duble, girdle, maniple and stole. The
commissioners find that neither confes-
Hinn nor prayers for the dead are mental, but they uphold the declaration In
the encyclical letter Issued by the Lambeth Conference of 1S78 that "No minister of the Church ls authorized to require private confession from those
who- may resort to him," and they point
out that, while "praysra for the rest
mnd refreshment of the souls of the departed are older than the most ancient
liturgies," the strictly Roman doctrine
of a material purgatory and of the ef-
'flcacy et mewses has altered the character of these prayers, and that, as
_3ed In public worship, they are contrary to the Book of Common Prayer.
A New Ornaments Rubric
' It is recommended that letters of
business be Issued to the Convocations
to prepare a new rubric regulating the
ornaments, and to frame amendments
to make more elastic the law relating
to Divine service. An amendment ls
advised for the giving of wider scope
for the exercise of regulative authority
In the matter of additional and special
services, collects and hymns. The commissioners would havo bishops Invested
with power to refuso presentees whose
willingness to obey the law is a matter
of doubt.    The recommendation of the
Ecclesiastical Courts Commission of
1883 as to a final court Is adopted. If
this were acted on, the highest tribunal for the trying of charges of heresy, of breaches of ritual, etc., would
be, not, as now, the Judicial Committee
of the Privy Council, but a permanent
body of lay Judges, to whom final appeals shall be referable. Those members of the Crown Court of Final Appeal should all be mom'bers of the
Church of England. The c mrt would
decide, ultimately, all questions of fact,
but, to decide whether the facts ascertained establish an offence against the
doctrine or discipline of the Church,
the court should act on the advice of
the bishops, unless there ls clear Parliamentary authority for acting without such advice. It Is further recommended that an ecclesiastical court be
empowered to punish disobedience of
Its orders on the part of an Incumbent
by vacating his benefice, and rendering
him ineligible for further ecclesiastical
service until he has satisfied the archbishop of the province that he will afterwards abide by the law.
More Bishops.
The commissioners consider that one
cause for the general laxity In the observance of the law Is the Inadequacy
of the present supervision. They find
that there ls great room for Improvement In thi> matter of vlslt_t'_rus bv
bishops and archdeacons, and of Inspections by rural deans. These visits are
the regular and official means (or
keeping the blahops informed as to the
conduct ot Divine service, and as to
the ornaments, objects of decoration,
and fittings of the churches. Episcopal
directions, In accordance with law,
should be made enforceable against Incumbents and churchwardens by means
of summary application to the consistory court Of the diocese. Any order
thus made should be subject tp appeal
to the provincial court But visitation
cannot be sufficiently effective In many
of the present dioceses because of their
great extent. Hence, the commissioners
advise the sub-division of many dioceses and the passing of a general act
providing for the creation of new dioceses by order-ln-Council.
COOLING MILK.
_•   Keep   It   Sweet   From   Saturday
"-(tht to Monday Horning.
Where milk is not taken to the
creamery or cheese factory on Sunday
to keep it on the farm from Saturday
night to Monday morning In warm
weather so as to have It sweet when It
finally reaches the factory ls a difficult
problem, but an Important one, especially if the milk Is Intended for
oheesemakiug. Apropos of this difficulty the following Instructions of a
Canadian diary expert are reproduced
from the Ottawa Journal:
The only cooling agents to be had by
the farmer are Ice and cold water, and
every Intelligent dairy farmer who
wants to send sweet milk on Monday
morning should bave a supply of Ice
and know how to use lt. Tbe quickest
way to cool milk Is to have lt flow In
thin layers over a cold surface, but this
Is generally not practical to a farmer.
Practical Method.
The method I advise to patrons ln
my district is as follows: A tank or
trough of some kind is required to hold
cold water, and In this water the cans
containing the milk are placed. Each
pailful as it Is drawn from the cow Is
strained Into these cans, which should
not be too large. By the time all the
milking ls done the milk will be fairly
cool, but the water will have become
warmed and will have to be run olf
and more cold water put on in Its
place. This should put the temperature down to 55 degrees, but renew
the water as often as necessary. All
the work then required ls to stir tbe
milk occasionally In order to Insure a
uniform temperature throughout. If
you have Ice to put ln the water you
can Bee how much better lt will be and
how much labor lt will save you.
After Cooling.
When the milk Ib cooled cover the
cane with a clean, wet blanket, one
end of whlcb is left ln the water and,
acting as a wick, aids ln maintaining
the cool temperature and also prevents
the cream from drying. If you have a
well or a spring to set tbe cans In they
will answer tbe purpose well, but be
sure to stir the milk at Intervals while
It ls cooling, so thnt tho center will not
remain warm and the outer parts only
be cooled.
Again, let me say cool the milk just
as soon as possible after drawing it
from the cow to below 55 degrees, and
keep lt there until lt ls time to send lt
to the factory on Monday morning. Do
not add Sundny morning's milk to that
of Saturday night unless It has been
flrst cooled to as cold a temperature as
that of the night's milk.
Fly Spray.
The Kansas station recommends the
following spray for flics on cows: Dissolve two cakes of lauudry soap In water and mix with the solution one nnd
one-half pounds of resin, one-half pint
of flsh oil and enough water to make
three gallons. Use about one-half pint
on each cow two or three times a week
until the hair becomes coated with
resin. This may be applied with a
brush or also as a spray.

that he should be phced ln a reformatory. Mr. King-horn, however, has fallen ln with the vlofl expressed by Tha
Weekly Dispatch tiat a lad of such

stipendiary said th|t ha waa reluctant
to aend tha boy to such an institution.
There waa nothing criminal In hia roving propensities »ni ha had tha making of a good mat ln him. Ha had,
therefore, dacldad io aend him to tha
training ship Clio, jtatlonad at Bangor,
until ha was sixteen years of age.

The Kangaroo et Bay.
When pursued the kangaroo, If possible, directs his flight toward the river.
If he reaches tt, he enters and, thanks
to his great height, ls able to go on
foot to a depth where the dogs are
obliged to swim. There he plants himself on his two hind legs and his tall,
and, up to his shoulders In the water,
ho waits the attack of the dogs. With
bis fore paws he seizes by the head the
flrst dog that approaches him, and, as
he Is more solidly balanced than his
assailant, be holds the dog's nese under water as long as he can. Unless
a second dog speedily comes to the
rescue the first one ls sure to be
drowned. If a companion arrives and
by his attacks en the kangaroo manages to set the captive free the half
drowned brute ls glad to regain tbe
shore as quickly as possible. In this
way a strong and courageous male
kangaroo will hold his own against
twenty or thirty dogs, drowning some
and frightening others, and the hunter

They crawl out of some dried wood,
and, taking up their position on a convenient rock or stone, look, as they
hold their great jointed sting curved
over their backs lyiti their claws held
aloft, the very picture ef aggressive
warfare. Here they stretch themselves
lu the broiling sun and await their
prey. These are the small, beautiful
honeyblrds that dart from flower bi

Into the stone until It becomes almost
Imperceptible. Suddenly the great Insect will raise its claws and dart at its

Is Recognized
How it Is Promptly Relieved and Thoroughly
Cured by
Dr.   Chase's   Ointment.
There are many kinds of eczema,
but all have suoh symptoms as redness of the skin, with a yellow tinge,
heat and inflammation, swelling, discharge of watery matter and tho
formaton of a crust.
The most constant and' troublesome feature is Hie itching and burning which varies from that which is
simply annoying to that which is positively unendurable.
Then there is the tendency for eczema to become chronic and spread to
other parts of the body.
Persistent treatment is always necessary, )ni>: you can depend on it that
Dr. Chase's Ointment will oure you.
Relief will come after the first few
applications, and the healing process
will be gradual and natural.
It is duo to its remarkable record
in the cure of eczema that Dr. Chasef s
Ointment has become known the World
over. For every form of itohing
skin disease or skin irritation it
is of incalculable worth.
Mrs.    Joseph    Brickman,      Gilbert
Plains, Man., writes:—"I have used
Dr. Chase's Ointjment with good success. Por fifteen years I was troubled
wWH itching burning skin disease and
tried many remedies all to no avail,
until I used Dr. Chase's Ointment.
This preparation gave immediate and
lasting relief and I would not be without it for anything as it iB worth its
weight in gold."
Mr. John dimming, Coalfields,
Sask., writes:—"I was troubled for
some time with disfiguring blotches
oo the faco and though I tried many
remedies both internally and externally could not get rid of them. A
friend1 .of mine recommended Dr.
Chase's Ointment and this preparation
acted almost like magic in my ease.
After using it for somo time the
blotches entirely disappeared and my
skin was left soflt and smooth."

CURTAINS AND WALL PAPER,
To Produce Good Effects They Should
Harmonise In Color Tones.
<*t is the easiest thing tn the world to
get the wrong tint iu one's curtains,
and sometimes lt ls the hardest thing
ln the world to get just the right one.
Before buying curtains the Wall paper
should be carefully studied. With papor that bas a white background it Ib
always safe to use white curtains, but
lf the background ls in colored tones
the greatest care should be used ln
selectiug material of a color that will
harmonize, and In buyiug curtains for
a room that is alreudy papered a sample of tho paper should be taken along
to avoid making a serious mistake. Of
course, If paper eud curtains are
bought at the same time it Is a comparatively easy matter to have a satisfactory combination of color.
Sometimes, no matter how much care
may huve been taken, the result will be
startllng'.y wrong. In this case much
may be done with overhanglngs, not of
heavy stuff, of light texture and of a
color that will tone in well with both
ef the conflicting shades, and that will
do much toward harmonizing the whole
appearance of the room, lf the windows have Inside shutters tbey, too,
must be considered in the color scheme.
If the shutters are of natural wood the
material of the curtains should be less
transparent than lf used with white
shutters. It ls quite as important that
tbe shutters and the curtains blend as
lt Is for the wall paper and the curtains
to look well together.—Boston Traveler.
Black Snakes.
/ have never seen black snakes ovei
seven feet loug and much doubt It
they grow to a greater length. They
are not hard to catch, though in an
open Hold they can run about as fast
as a man can. When caught they
struggle desperately until they Ond
there Is no opportunity to escape, when
they will give np, fighting and may be
bandied with Impunity. I have never
found these snakes to be vicious. They
can be handled easily, and their bite is
harmless. They can squeeze pretty
hard lf they get a turn around youl
waist but not hard enough to break ■
bone.—Forest and Stream.
Want to Tax Churches.
Exeter has more churches to the population than any place in England, aud
ls often called the "City of Churches."
The local authorities have been considering the desirability of assessing these
numerous buildings, and so adding on-
ormously to the rateable value of the
city. They attempted to rate a church
used by the Spiritualists, but a protest
was lodged against lt by the stewards,
who contend that lf one sect ls rated, all
must be rated, Including the cathedral.
The matter stands adjourned to ascertain the practice ln other parts ot the'
country.  ^^
Plnto'a Safety Valve.
A round, smooth hole ln the side of a
granite monument about nine miles
ont from the City of Mexico Is locally
known by a term which signifies "Pluto's safety valve." The bole ls about
nine Inches in diameter at the opening,
which Is polished ln a manner which
suggests human workmanship. That
man had nothing to do with drilling
or polishing tbls hole will be readily
surmised when it ls known that lt has
occasionally emitted hot air and smoke
during a period extending over 300
years.
The Man of Force.
There Is always room for a man of

Upon Him
By OTRO  B. SENGA
CopurioM,  _-0,  by  E.  C. Parcelh
Squire Hart looked the young fellow
ever keenly.
"M—m!" giving his pudgy hand to the
clasp of the long, thin one extended in
greeting, "Ralph Reed, eh? Aud what
do you do? Football, I suppose, like
the rest of these doukeys!"
Reed laughed good bumoredly.
"No, Mr. Hart, I wouldn't stand the
ghost of a chance In a rush. I'm on the
track team."
"He's the champion sprinter, papa,"
Interposed Elsie eagerly. "He won five
points for the blue lu the intercollegiate
contest!"
1 Her father frowned at her enthusiasm, and Reed's thin, brown face colored.
"You ought to run," grumbled the
squire, continuing his examination of
the young fellow; "you're built like a
greyhound or a grasshopper 1"
Reed, outwardly at ease, flinched Inwardly under the squire's keen scrutiny. His compact with the pretty Elsie
would be null and void without her father's consent, and he felt that bis athletic career was a detriment ln the
eyes of the older man. He was not at
all encouraged by the remarks tbat followed.
"I don't believe ln It," Irascibly.
"Boys go to college to study, or ought
to, and they make a business of some
kind of foolish play. If those football
fellows," pointing to the three otber
young men who were his daughter's
guests for the spring vacation, "had to
work one-half as hard sawing wood or
plowing, they'd think they were terribly abused."
Some one called Elsie, and Bbe hurried away, giving a pleading glance at
her lover which he interpreted as counseling him to patience.
"And as for running," continued the
squire, with Increasing eholer, for he,
too, hnd seen the pleading glance, "as
for running, why should a man of ordi-

nary courage care to excel as a runner?
Running is an accomplishment for cowards!"
The blood rushed to the dark face,
but Reed spoke quietly and courteously.
"There are things to run for as well
as things to run from, Mr. Hart, and I
hope I'd not be lacking if a test of
courage came to me."
It was a merry party that roamed
ever the fields and through the woods
searching for the earliest spring flowers; that rode and drove and sang and
danced.
Young Reed and his fair hostess carried heavy hearts that made gayety an
effort and laughter a mockery. Tbe
squire bad refused to sanction their engagement, to listen to any suggestion
or to make any promises for the future.
'TU wait," he said grimly, "until you
have shown that you can do something
besides run!"
Apparently oblivious to the sports of
the guests at Hart's Holm, the squire
had kept a keen eye on them all. He
rather admired the dogged pertinacity
with which Reed took his dally run of
three or four miles over the country
roads. He smiled grimly when he saw
the young fellow start out as if for a
walk wearing a long raincoat over bis
running togs.
"Doesn't mean to give nny unnecessary offense to tho 'crewel parlent,'"
chuckled the squire appreciatively, "but
Intends to have his own way just the
snme.
"It'll be rather quiet and lonely at the
house tomorrow," soliloquized the
squire as lie drove along, sniffing the
fresh, clear air of the bright spring
morning.   "The lads and lassies all go
tdaay". I wish 1 naant nee- quite se
sharp with Elsie and that young fellow.
He seems a fine, manly chap. But what
on earth does he want to run for?" ending Irritably. "Hello, Bartlett what's
the matter with your horse?"
He had reached the top of a long,
steep hill, and overtaken a neighbor
with a heavy load of rock.
"Stepped on a stone that rolled, and
gone as lame as a lazy man's excuses,"
Bartlett answered characteristically.
"Suppose I hitch ln my team and
take the load down for you," suggested
the squire, "It's all level after,we pass
my house. You can lead yours down
on stin, Betty Bartlett, anrt hold on
tight," playfully addressing ejy. little
girl perched on the seat "i.y aorses
are frisky, you know."
Bartlett had locked the wagon wheels
preparatory to making the descent, but
as the squire lifted the tongue for the
other horses to be hitched In the lock
chain snapped and broke and the heavily loaded wagon started down the hill.
He shouted to Bartlett, who, hampered by the four horses, lost his head
and only bawled, "Whoa, Hart, whoa!"
Hart held on to the tongue and
braced back with all his strength, but
duonltp his efforts the wacon went, living down tbe mil like un engine on
down grade.
"Hold on tight Betty,'' the squire
managed to scream.
He knew that If he dropped the
tongue the wagon would be tipped over
Instantly and that there would be
small chance indeed for the life of the.
child; so he too "held on tight" and
ran-as lf fleeing from death.
"Go on, horsy," cried Betty, In great
glee; "go faster!"
The squire couldn't spare breath now
even to groan. The heavy wagon, with
a ton of rock behind him, crashed and
roared, bounced over the rough places
in tbe road, struck fire from cut stones,
and the man ran till his legs seemed
merely rags fluttering ln a fierce wind.
Almost at the foot! If only he could
hold out a few seconds more! Aud theu
he tried to close his eyes—for there,
crossing the road, directly In the path
from whleh he dared not diverge, was
a little scarlet clad figure drawing a
child's cart!
Bobby-his own little Bobby!
He tried to pray, he tried again to
close his eyes, and theu a streak of
blue dashed by him, the scarlet spot
was caught up and rushed to safety!
He Jumped Instinctively when he
reached the little cart, and lt was
crushed to pieces uuder the thundering
wheels.
He had reached the level. He could
feel the slackening of the terrific speed,
but he still ran on, miles it seemed to
him now, before lie could stop the demon that was forcing him onward.
"Go on, horsy! Gldd up!" cried the
Insatiate Betty as the squire dropped
limp to the ground. "You can be my
horsy now," she remarked complacently to the flrst of tbe young men
who reached the side of the exhausted
squire.
They quickly improvised a stretcher
from the blankets and carried the unconscious man to tbe bouse.
He opened his eyes after awhile and
looked anxiously about him.
"Bobby's all right," said some one
quickly, "and the little girl—snd—and,
I guess, everybody."
"Ralph!" gasped the squire.
"Here I am, Mr. Hart," bending over
him.
"I am glad you can run," faintly.
"So am I, Mr. Hart," feelingly. "I
feared you were going to run over me.
though."
"We'll have to concede you to be the
champion sprinter!" cried one of the
other men. "That was a pretty long
dash, sure enough!"
"Rulph must yield the palm to you,
squire," added another jovially.
The squire shook his bead feebly.
"He-he 'achieved' it," he whispered,
his eyes on Ralph's fine face, "but It—
it was"—   He sighed wearily.
"It was 'thrust upon you,' you mean,

The squire smiled grimly in acquiescence.

ONTARIO'S INSANE.
.  .  ji
Duly ef the  Provnoa  Toward These
Unfortunate*— H.n.  J.  W.  Hanna
Addressee the Canadian Club.
The speaker at tiie Canadian Club of
Toronto on a recan'; afternoon waa Hon.
W. J. Hanna, tht provincial Secretary,
wh* talked enter alnlngly and instructively upon the question of the care of
our mentally afflilttd, and the devising
of a system which,while continuing the
efficiency of the1 present method towards the affllctejl '.hemselves, will not
ba a direct Incentive to the shirking of
obvious duties on the part of- the Individual and tha local community. His
utterances were listened to with de'ep
Interest, the lmpresilon prevailing that
they were ln a sense semi-official.
There are, ha said, tn the Institutions
for the insane ln Or.tario, 6,000 people,
who are maintained at an annual cost
of quite (1,000,000 if anything at all ls
allowed for capital account, eto. For
the maintenance of but 1,200 of these
or about 20 per cent, la anything contributed by patients themselves, or by
those morally or legally responsible.for
their care and comfort, and for tha
year ending 30th {September last tha
amount so contributed waa lesa than
$116,000, the highest point yet reached.
Much ef this was', contributed by tha
working class, whd are as a class tha
least disposed to a^old payment. This
means that SH per cent of the coat of
maintenance Is defrayed by tha province. He acknowledged the duty of
ths Government to take care of this
elaaa of citizens, but en far higher
grounds of a measure of humanity and
practical Christianity he unhesitatingly
advocated tha most efficient system, regardless of expense. The central plan
of caring for the Insane adopted by the
Government is superior to the localized
one at many points, but lt destroyed
the careful oversight of each Individual
case which Is the distinctive feature of
kical Interest and control. The superiority of the localized system consists
ln the fact that the municipal officers
have personal knowledge of every case
and of the ability of the relatives to
pay and whether they should ba made
to pay. In this respect the Ontario system is deplorably defective. Mr. Hanna drew attention to the Increase ln
the number of Insane from one In each
1,168 of population ln 1871 to one ln
each 340 ln 1905, while ln Quebec thero
ls only one In each 450, ln New Brunswick one ln 460, and ln Nova Scotia
one in 850. The question was, "Is Government aid to-day given ln such a
way as to kill Individual effort, and can
It be given in such a way as to stimulate lt?" Had the plan originally adopted and slr.ee pursued in .some way retained the assistance of tke municipalities in determining ml** are'properly admissible and who should pay and
to what extent lt would have enlisted
the help of thousands of prisoners having Intimate knowledge of the cases,
who would nave all been Interested in
some degree ln seeing that the system
waa not abused. One of the most conspicuous consequence>s of the plan
adopted ls that lt has developed a system which, however humane and efficient It may be, haa a pauperizing effect. No such complaint exists ln the
cases cf houses of refuge and of non-
paying hospital patients. Does the local
knowledge and Interest ln these cases
furnish the explanation? He asked the
Canadian Club to solve the problem,
Imposing but one condition—that the
solution shall not result In Increased
burdens on the municipalities.

What Nature Demands In Return For
Good  Health.        ^
First of all, one thing that nature
won't stand is Irregularity. We cannot
safely bottle up sleep tonight for tomorrow night's use, nor force our stomachs one meal because we expect to eat
sparingly the next, nor become exhausted ln working nlgbt and day, expecting
to make it up later. .    ■
Nature does nothing before her appointed time, and any attempt to hurry
her Invariably means ultimate disaster.
She takes note of all our transactions,
physical, mental and moral, aud places
every Item to our credit.
There is no such thing as cheating nature. She may not present her bill on
the day we violate her law, but lf we
overdraw our account at ber bank and
give ber a mortgage on our minds and
bodies sbe will surely foreclose. She
may lend us all we want today, but
tomorrow, like Shylock, she will demand the last ounce of flesh. Nature
does not excuse man for weakness, Incompetence or Ignorance. She demands
that be be at the top of his condition-
Nature's machinery, ns tt exists In
the human body, Is most complicated
and delicately adjusted. No machinery
constructed by man can compare wltb

all Its working parts. Every machinist
knows that bis wheels and cams and
gearing must run absolutely true and
with uniformity or they will soon break
down. It ls the same with the machine
that keeps the human body going.

spectlon. The tiny gas stove and the
little dining table may be concealed behind its folds, and it may hide the
washstand and towels. If tiie home Is
more ambitious aud there are several
rooms, the screen has still its part to
play.
It Is so simple to make and the results obtained are so satisfactory tbat
It may be well 'to give a few suggestions as a guide to any who wish to' attempt the task.
First determine upon the size of the
screen, the height of the panels, their
width and whether two, three or four
shall be used: A screen of good proportion ls one-formed of three panels, five
and a half feet high by two feet in
width. Have a frame made by the carpenter, or, better still, make lt yourself lf you are clever at such work. It
ls a simple matter to form the skeleton
of strips of light pine from an inch to
an inch and a half in thickness. Only
the outside pieces and two erosspieces
are required' to brace the frame and
make it taut and firm. Once the frame
ls completed the rest is easy.
Now stretch over the frame some figured burlaup that can be secured for
12*_ cents a yard. Choose this for the
face of the screen. Place the frame
upoh the floor. Tack the edge of the
burlap to the top pVece of the frame
aud stretch tightly and tack to tbe
lower piece and sides. In doing thia
the edge of the burlap should be drawn
over the corner ot the wood, so that
when the back is covered in the same
way all the surface Is smooth except
the rim of the screen. This rim ls then
treated by a covering of gimp or braid
or a narrow piece of burlap hemmed
and bound. Fasten It on with brass
headed tacks, and the panel is completed. Light brass binges join the
panels, and tbe screen is ready for use.
Manjjpther cheap fabrics may be
used to cover these screens. Figured
burlaps, blue de_im, creton or Inexpensive tapestries all make admirable coverings.
A Literary "At Borne."
Another form of entertainment which
causes a great deal of Interest ts to
have a literary "nt home," when each
guest Is expected to represent a well
known book.
On arrival each guest must hand the
hostess bis or her card, on which is
written the book that tbey represent
and she iu turn hands them a card on
which are written the mimes of the
guests, with a space left by the side
of each. The object Is to guess as
many of the books represented as possible, and the one who fills up most
of the spaces receives the prize.
No elaborate faucy costumes are necessary, but all that ls required perhaps
will be the addition of a faded rose to
represent "The Rose of Yesterday," a
girl In a white frock for "The Woman
In White" or a scarlet frock for "Tbe
Woman In Scarlet." "Nicholas Nickle-
by" is cleverly represented by the letters S and B, made of nickel (nickel S,
nickel B), and "Oliver Twist" by a
piece of twisted wire (all of a twist),
"We Two" by a tiny figure 2. In many
ways little devices like these cau be
contrived which will cause a great deal
of guessing and fun.
