Presently there come a heavy step
and a quick pull at the latchstring.
An odd figure entered In a swirl of
enow—a real Santa Claus, the mystery
and blessing of Cedar hill. For five
years every Christmas eve In good or
bad weatber be bad come to four little
houses on the hill, where, indeed, his
coming had been as a godsend.
Whence be came and who he might be
none bad been able to guess. He n .ver
spoke in his official capacity, and no
citizen of Faraway had such a beard
or figure as this man. Now his fur
coat, his beard and eyebrows were
hoary with snow nnd frost. Icicles
hung from his mustache around the
short clay pipe of tradition. He lowered a great sack and brushed the snow
off lt. He bad borne It high on his
back, with a strap at each shoulder.
Tbe sack was now about balf full of
things. He took out three big bundles
and laid them on tbe table. Tbey were
evidently for tbe widow herself, who
quickly stepped to tbe bedside.
"Come children." she whispered, rousing tbem, "here ls Santa Claus."
They scrambled down, rubbing their
eyes. Polly took the hands of the two
small boys and led them near blm.
Paul drew his hand away and stood
spellbound, eyes and mouth open. He
watched every motion of the good
saint, who had come to tbat chair that
beld the llttle stockings. Santa Claus
put a pair of boots on lt. Tbey were
cooper toed, wltb gorgeous front pieces
tit led _mrocco at the top of tlie leg.
Tbeu, as if ne bad some relish of a
Joke, be took tbem up, looked them
over thoughtfully and put them back
In the sack again, whereupon tbe boy
Paul burst into tears. Old Santa Claus,
slinking with silent laughter, replaced
them lu tbe chair quickly.
As if to lighten the boy's heart he
opened a box and took out a mouth
organ. He beld lt so the light sparkled
on Its shiny side. Then he put his pipe
ln bis pocket and began to dance and
play lively music. Step and tune quickened. The bulky figure was flying up
and down above a great clatter of big
boots, his head wagging to keep time.
Tbe oldest Children --re laughing, and
the boy Paul began to smile in the
midst of a great sob tbat shook him to
tbe toes. The player stopped suddenly,
stuffed the Instrument in n stocking
and went on with his work. Presently
be uncovered a stick of candy long aa
a man's arm. There were spiral stripes
of red from end to end of It. He used
lt for a fiddle bow, whistling with terrific energy and awing tbe air. Then
he put shawls id tippets and boots
and various li, packages on the other
chairs.
At last be drew out of the sack a
sheet of pasteboard, with' string attached, and hung It on tbe wall. It
bore the simple message, rudely lettered In black, as follows:
Mery Crlsmua. And Children 1 have ths
honnor to remane. Yours Respec'fully
SANDY CLAUB.
His work done, he swung his pack
to his shoulders and made off as they
broke tbe silence with a hearty "Tbank
you, Santa Claus!"
They listened a moment as be went
away with a loud and merry laugh
sounding above the roar of the Wind.
It was the voice of a big and gentle
heart, but gave no otber clew. In a
moment cries of delight and a rustla of
wrappings filled the room. As on
wings of the bitter wind, joy and good
fortune had come to tbem and ln that
llttle house had drifted deep aa the
■now without
Tbe children went to their beds with
■low feet and quick pulses. Paul begged for the sacred privilege of wearing
his new boots to bed, but compromised
on having them lieskie bis pillow. Tbe
boys went to sleep at last, with all
their treasures heaped about tbem.
Tom shortly rolled upon the llttle jumping jack, that broke away and butted
him ln the face with a loud squawk.
It roused the boy, wbo promptly set
up a defense In which the stuffed ben
lost her tail feathers and the jumping
Jack was violently put out of bed.
When the mother came to see what
had happened order had been restored—
the boys were both sleeping.
It was an odd little room under bare
shingles above stairs. Great chests
filled with relics of another time nnd
country sat against the walls. Here
and there a buncb of herbs or a few
ears of corn, their bnsks braided, hung
on the bare rafters. The aroma of the
summer fields—of peppermint, catnip
and lobelia—bannted It. Chimney and
stovepipe tempered tbe cold. A crack

frightened by the melee, had hidden
far under tbe clothes. Sbe went below
stairs to the flre. which every cold day
was well fed until after midnight, and
began to enjoy the sight of her own
gifts. They were a haunch of venison,
a sack of flour, a shawl and mittens.
A small package had fallen to the floor.
It was neatly bound with wrappings of
blue paper. Under tbe last layer was a
little box, the words "For Polly" on its
cover. It held a locket of wrought
gold tbat outshone tbe light of the candies. Sbe touched a spring, and tbe
case opeued. Inside was a lock of hair
white as ber own. There were three
Hues cut lu the glowing metnl, and
she read tbem over and over again:
Here are silver and gold,
The one for a day of remembrance between thee and dishonor,
The other for a day of plenty between
thee and want.
Sbe went to her bed presently, wher^
the girl lay sleeping, and. lifting dark
masses of her hair, kissed a ruddy
cheek. Then tbe widow stood a moment, wiping her eyes.
CHAPTER XII.
10NG before daylight one could
hear the slowing of the wind.
f*f Its caravan, now reaching eastward to mldocean, was nearly
passed. Scattered gusts hurried on, like
weary and belated followers. Then
suddenly came a silence ln which one
might have heard the dust of their feet
falling, their shouts receding in the far
woodland. The sun rose In a clear sky
above the patched and ragged canopy
of the woods—a weary multitude now
resting in the still air.
The children  were up looking  for
tracks of reindeer and breaking paths
In the snow. Sunlight glimmered In
far flung jewels of tbe frost king. They
lay deep, clinking as the foot sank lu
them. At tbe Vaughn home It was an
eventful day. Santa Claus—well, he is
the great captain that leads us to the
farther gate of childhood and surrenders the golden key. Many waya are
beyond the gate, some steep and
thorny, and some who pass lt turn
back, with bleeding feet and wet eyes,
but the gate opens not again for any
that have passed. Tom had got the
key and begun to try It Santa Claus
had winked at him, with a snaring
eye, like that of his aunt when she had
sugar In ber pocket, and Tom thought
lt very foolish. The boy bad even felt
of bis greatcoat and got a good look at
bis boots and trousers. Moreover,
when be put bis pipe away, Turn saw
hlin take a chew of tobacco—an abhorrent thing if he were to believe his
mother.
"Mother," aaid he, "I never knew
Santa Claus chewed tobacco."
"Well, mebbe be waB Santa Claus'
hired man," said she.
"Might 'a' had the toothache." Paul
suggested, for Lew Allen, who worked
for tbem ln tbe summer time, bad a
habitual toothache, relieved many times
a day by chewing tobacco.
Tom sat looking into tbe fire • moment.
Then be spoke of a um, er Paul and
he bad discussed secretly.
"Joe Bellus be toi' me Santa Claus
was only somebody rigged up t' fool
folks an' badn't no reindeers at all."
The mother turned away, her wits
groping for an answer.
"Hadn't ought to 'a' told mother,
Tom," said Paul, with a llttle quiver of
reproach and pity. " 'Taln't so, anyway
—we know 'taln't so."
He was looking Into his mother's
face.
" 'Taln't so," Paul repeated with unshaken e_ul_'<»ui'«.    --.     ..   -  -
■ -Mus'n't believe all ye hear,'" said
the widow, who now turned to the
doubting Thomas.
And that very moment Tom was
come to the last gate of childhood,"
whereon are the black and necessary
words, "Mus'n't believe all ye hear."
Tbe boys In their new boots were on
the track of a panther. They treed
blm presently at tbe foot of the stairs.
"How'll we kill him?" one of them
Inquired.
"Just walk around tbe tree once,"
said the mother, "an' you'll scare him
to death. Why don't ye grease your
boots?"
" 'Frald It'll take the screak out of
'em." said Paul, looking down thoughtfully at his own pair.
"Well," said she, "you'll have me
treed lf you keep on. No hunter would
have boots like that A loud foot
makea a still gun."
Tbat was her unfailing method of
control, the appeal to intelligence. Polly sat singing thoughtfully, the locket
in her hand. She had kissed the sacred
thing and hung It by a ribbon to her
neck and bathed her eyes In the golden
light of lt and begun to feel the subtle
pathos ln Its odd message. She was
thinking of the handsome boy who
came along that far May day with the
drove and who lately bad returned to
be her teacher at Llnley school. Now
be bad so much dignity and learning
she liked him not half so well and felt
be had no longer any care for ber. She
blushed to tblnk bow she had wept
over bis letter and kissed it every day
for weeks. Her dream was interrupted
presently by tbe call of her brother
Tom. Having cut the frost on a window pane, he stood peering out. A
man wus approaching in tbe uear field.
His figure sllowed to the boot top
mounting bills of snow and sank out
of sight in tbe deep hollows. It looked
as if he were walking on a rough sen.
In a moment be came striding over the
dooryard fence on a pair of snowshoes.
"It's Mr. Trove, the teacher,"  said
Polly, who quickly began to shake her
curls
(To Be Continued.)
FAIR PLAY.
THE TINY SCIARA.
A Proceulon of Worms Seen Ib Hun.
■rarr xxxid Norway.
In some of tbe Hungarian forests
and In tbe pine woods of Norway there
exists a tiny, wormilke insect called
the selnrn, of the genus tlpula. During the month of July or early In August they gather together In large
numbers, preparatory to migrating In
search of food or for change of condition. When setting out on this journey they stick themselves together by
means of some glutinous matter and
form a huge serpent-like mass, often
reaching a length of between forty and
fifty feet and several Inches In thickness. As the sclera Is only on an average about three thirty-seconds of an
Inch ln length, with no appreciable
breadth whatever, the. number required
to compose a continuous line of tbe
size above mentioned Is almost Incalculable. Their pace Is, of course, very
slow, and upon meeting an obstacle,
such as a stick or stone, tbey will
either writhe over or around It sometimes breaking into two bodies for this
purpose.
M. Guerln-Meneville, a celebrated
French naturalist, said that If tbe rear
portion of this wonderful snakellke
procession be brought Into contact with
tbe front part and a sort of circle
formed tbe Insects will keep moving
round In that circle for hours without
apparently noticing that they are getting no "forrader" on their journey. If
tbe procession be broken In two, tbe
portions will reunite ln a short time.
The Norwegian peasants, when tbey
meet one of these trains, will lay some
article of their clothing, such as a belt
or handkerchief, on the ground In front
of It. If the procession passes over It
It Is regarded as a good sign, but If it
makes a way round tbe reverse ls believed.
THE HOUSE OF LORDS
CHECKS   IT  HAS  RECEIVED   AT   THE
HANDS Of THE COMMONS.
A Plea That la Reapected by Almoal
AH Claaaee of Hen.
There Is an appeal tu which nearly
all classes of men give heed—let us
bave fair play. You may address a
seboolful of mischievous boys on the
beauties of goodness, on tbe evils of
cruelty or harshness to tbelr fellows,
and they will laugh at you. Exhortations to avoid any abstract evil or
wrong and appeals to follow any abstract virtue will seem buzy to almost
any collection of ordinary, healthy and
lusty youug boys, but if tbelr sense of
fair play be addressed there Is a ready
response.
(_o among a crowd of wharfingers or
longshoremen or tbe roughest and most
reckless sailors, wbo hnve neither
home nor principles of any sort and
talk to tbem of tbe things of the head
or of tbe heart, nnd tbey will think
that you are a harmless but quite futile specimen from crankdom. Try to
awaken In tbem a horror of tbe brutality of their usual life, speak in moving
terms of tbe force and beauty of kindness or of virtue or of any attribute
of a polite and civilized society and
way of life, and you will be soliciting
the wind, talking to a statue, shouting
ln the desert But In the most uncouth
assemblage and in the vilest haunt ln
the English speaking world mention
fair play and found your argument
and your plea on thnt basis, and the
effect Is Instant and eloquent—Philadelphia Ledger.

Corned beef bash as made by Senator Hanna's cook was very popular
In Washington several years ago.
When the head waiter of the senate
restaurant wanted hash prepared very
carefully he ordered It this way: "One
corned beef bash for Senator Hanna."
One day when the restaurant waa doing a heavy business almost everybody
seemed to want corned beef bash
"Corned beef hash for Senator Hanna"
had been ordered fourteen times.
When the fifteenth order went down
to the kitchen tbe chef shouted:
"That's fifteen orders for Senator
Hannal He'd better watch out or he'll
founder hlsself."
Saved tbe Situation.
"Ha, here comes Ratcltffe with a
dagger! My last moment bas arrived!" exclaims one of tbe characters In
a new melodrama. Unfortunately,
however, the actor representing Rnt-
cllffe had forgotten the dagger and
come on tbe stage without it But be
was equal to the occasion. "Villain,"
lie exclaimed, "thou thoughtst thou
sawst a dagger In mine hand. 'Twus
thine evil conscience supplied tbe vision. But I will slay thee with a blow
of this strong rlgbt hand," wblcb he
proceeded to do.
More Poalttre.
"Well," Bald Cadley scornfully, "I'll
bet you didn't do the proposing. It's
a safe bet that your wife asked you
to marry her."
"No," replied Henpeek, "you're
wrong."
"Oh, come now, be honest"
"No, she didn't nsk me; she told tne
to."-Philadelphia Press.
The Laborer* of Serrla.
Bervia's laborer Is at henrt a simple,
prosaic fellow. His attire is coarse almost to the point of ungalnliness—
rough brown trousers of homespun, a
coat a shade or two darker and edged
with a strip of black fleece; a peaked
woolen cap and a cane, and you bave
the picture. He is a farmer on a small
scale, and his hobby Is raising bogs,
which he turns Into tbe forests or
fields to fatten on mast Tbe rural life
ln Servla ls primitive. At sunup folks
rise, take their rakl, or schnapps, and
go to the fields to work. Their meal ls
brought to thein at noon and again In
the evening, for tbey often work until
sunset And so life goes on and on.
Across the bluffs tbat border the river
a road rune parallel with the Danube,
and here workmen are seen, dressed
often In white suits with red girdles,
striving to bring from the earth the
grain tbat will not come. In Roumanla
and Bulgaria the grain lands are rich,
bnt here tbe earth seems stubborn and
unproductive. So the laborer ekes out

The Bwlaa Fourth of July.
Aug. 1 ls the Swiss Fourth of July,
the national fete day. A traveler tells
how he helped to celebrate It one year
at one of the climbing centers in the
Valals by eating the sumptuous dinner
provided by the hotel without extra
charge, applauding the fireworks display and a bonfire lighted high on the
mountain side and shouting "Hourra!"
at the end of a patriotic speech extolling the ancient military glories and
present republican democracy of Switzerland. Next morning came tbe
strange sequel. Tbe orator of the occasion, the most distinguished native
visitor ln the place, was appealed to
as one who would certainly know the
nasoe of the Swiss president but even
he could not remember lt Nobody
ever can. Tbe name of that unassuming functionary ls always less familiar
ln Switzerland than that of the lien-
tenant governor is in Illinois. He is

Dr. MacNamara, M. P.
Dr. MacNamara, who was Mr. Bir-
rell's able lieutenant in the British
Commons during the fight for the
education bill, is familiarly known to
his host of friends as "Mac." He is
a Canadian by birth, born at Montreal in 1861, while his father, a sergeant in the 47th Regiment, was on
service in Canada. One of "Mac's"
most highly valued treasures is the
Fenian raid medal, which the old man
won in 1866, and which was received
by the son in 1899, a few months after his father's death. Dr. MacNamara
is an educationist of wide repute.
From 1876 to 1892 he taught in the
elementary schools of Exeter, Hvid-
dersfiold and Bristol. He did much
to organize the International Union
of Teachers, and in 1896 was elected
president of that body. About the
same time he was made a member
of the London School Board, polling
48,256 votes. Now he is a journalist
and editor of The Schoolmaster. !He
has written some valuable papers on
the lighter side of educational work,
such as "Schoolboy Honor" and
"Schoolmaster Sketches." But he also
knows the subject seriously, and during the debates on the educational
bill of last session he greatly increased his reputation. He is very popular
among the Liberal members of Parliament, who esteem him for his originality and independence. He is at
present member for North Camber-
wall.
The Loss Parliament  Pnt the Peera
|     Ont   of   Dnaineaa  Altogether  Por   a
1     Nnmber     of    Yeara — Bollngbroke'a
Way With the Noble I.orda.
I There Is an Idea ln tbe minds of very
many persons that tbe British house of
lords is supreme and can do pretty well
wbat it pleases. Tbls, however, ls a
mistake. On several notable occasions
their noble lordships have been paralyzed and have got very much tbe
worst of It in stormy arguments with
the gentlemen of the house of commons.
Tbe flrst occasion on which this happened was wben the peers ventured to
differ with the long parliament, which
was at the time engaged In a life aud
death struggle wltb Charles I. Tbo
commons on tbls occasion wasted no
.valuable time In talking, but promptly
abolished tbe lords altogetber aud
turned them, archbishops, dukes, belted earls and all tbe rest of the gorgeous coroneted crowd, into the street.
The gilded chamber was vacant.
I For balf a dozen years or so tbe
country got on without any bouse ot
lords.
All the checks tbe bouse of lords
have received bave not been of sucb u
drastic nature as this, of course.
I Various ministries, finding tbat tbe
peers were unwilling to pnss their proposed bills, have resorted to tbe threat
to create enough new peers to swamp
tbe house of lords. These new peers
would, of course, have been pledged
beforehand to vote for tbe ministry
creating tbem.
In 1711 tbe prime minister of the
dny, tbe daring and unscrupulous Viscount Bollngbroke, was anxious to, terminate tbe desolating and ruinous war
wltb France, which had been raging
on and off for twenty years.
To effect this purpose be had drawn
up the treaty of Utrecht It was necessary at tbat time tbat lords and commons should agree to a treaty before
lt would become valid. The commons
assented to tbe treaty, but the lords
declared that they would have none
of It and, tbat the war must go on,
whereupon Bollngbroke coolly but
firmly Informed tliem tbat, rather than
see himself defied by tbem, he would
create a whole army of new peers tt>
vote for the treaty.
The story goes that be bad a regiment of tbe Life guards paraded under
the windows of the bouse of lords antl
threatened to make every trooper Into
a noble lord lf driven to It. He did
make twelve new peers, and tben tbe
lords gave In.
The Liberal government of 1832, with
Earl Grey as prime minister, used tbe
same threat They wished to pass tbe
flrst reform bill. The lords hated tbls
bill bitterly.
Until tben they had been practically
an oligarchy, with all the real power
in tbelr hands. Tbe franchise bad been
so limited tbat only rich men, and generally only the nominee of some great
nobleman, could get into parliament.
Tbe reform bill altered tbat. It gave
the smaller men a chance. Tbe lords
expressed their deliberate Intention of
wrecking tbe bill.
Ear! Grey retorted by extorting from
King William IV.-wbo didv't like reform bills, but dared not opnose the
wish of tbe nation for fear of s revolution—permission to call up to tbe
house of lords as many new peers as
sbould be necessary to carry bis bill.
The mere threat was enough for tbe
lords. They bad no wish to see tbeli-
order made cheap and ridiculous, ns
would have been the case bad peers
become as plentiful as blackberries.
It used to be the custom ln the British army for all officers' commissions
to be purchased. Tbnt ls, an officer, instead of getting Into tbe army by
means of a competitive examination
and rising by merit came straight
from school, without knowing anything
of tbe new duties be was about to assume, and bad a commission bought
for him. After tbat, instead of being
promoted as a reward for his services,
he used to buy each promotion.
If he bad no money his chances of
being promoted were about a thousand
to one. The result waa that officers
wbo had grown gray ln the service and
fought In many battles remained subordinates all their lives, while the sons
of wealthy families wbo bad not seen
a quarter of their service Jumped over
their heads by having their way purchased up for them to be colonels and
generals.
Mr. Gladstone decided to do away
with this purchase system. The lords
did not wish It to be abolished. Consequently, when Mr. Gladstone Introduced a bill to abolish purchase In the
army the house of lords was not disposed to give it a kind reception.
They threw out the bill and Imagined
tbat tbey bad won a glorious victory.
But Mr. Gludstone found that Queen
Victoria had the power to abolish purchase ln the army by ber own act If
she pleased. He induced the queen to-
do this by means of a royal warrant.
And the bouse of lords could no more
Interfere wltb a royal warrant than
they could knock the dome off St.
Paul's by throwing their coronets at IU

TWO POWERFUL
JNSTANCES
OF   ZAM-BUK'S    WONDERFUL
HEALING.
Here are two powerful instances
of the varied ways in which Zam-
Buk, the great herbal balm, is doing good throughout the Dominion.
Have you yet enjoyed its benflt ?
Baby Cured of Eczema.
Mrs. L. Taylor, of Pine Ridge,
Man., says: "I will never be without Zam-Buk in the house, as I
have thoroughly proved it. It cured
irritating rash and eczema on my
baby's feet during teething. Where
there are children it is invaluable,
as it heals their sores and injuries
in wonderfully short, time.
Trodden on  by Horse—Bad  Bruises.
Mr. D. Cumming, 01 Springmount,
Ont., says: "I have proved that
Zam-Buk has extraordinary merit. I
was trampled on by a horse and my
foot was all black and swollen. I
could scarcely move it the pain was
so bad. A few applications of
Zam-Buk cured the pain and removed the discoloration. The foot was
soon all right again. It is a wonderful balm."
Zam-Buk is an all-round household balm. It is compounded from
purely herbal essences and cures eczema, ulcers, sores, chapped hands,
bruises, cuts, burns, etc. It also
cures rheumatism, sciatica, neuralgia, and rubbed well in over the
chest in cases of cold removes the
tightness and aching. All druggists
and stores sell at 50c. a box, or
post free from the Zam-Buk Co.,
Toronto, upon receipt of price. 6
boxes sent for $2.50.
The Montreal detectives have unearthed what they think is a widespread burglary conspiracy. 'ine
head of it is a man named Marjori-
que Gagnon, a boot and shoe manufacturer, in whose place they found
at least $5,000 wortn of goods, from
balls to jewelry. This amount they
think is only a part of what the burglary syndicate is supposed to have
token. Another man, named Ishmael
Bourrette, has been arrested also.
The police lit upon Gagnon when
looking up the records of men convicted in -ie United States and now
living in Montreal, in the hope tnat
they might strike a due which would
help them to stop a burglary epidemic. They struck Gagnon's record
and found he had served a long term
in Sing Sing.

will be interested in learning of the
presentation of the gifts to the battleship London, subscribed for by the
ex-Lord Mayor, Sir John Pound,, and
the citizens of London. Lord Charles
Beresford, commander-in-chief of the
Mediterranean fleet, went in state to
the London, and after inspecting the
ship and the men delivered an address in which he dwelt on the great
part played by citizens of London in
the establishment of British sea power. The admiral prefaced his speech
with a characteristic reference to his
inspection. "It has particularly pleased me," he said, "to see that the
men looked me straight in the face.
Men should always look their officers in the eye, and stand up and
be proud of themselves." Lord Beresford then, in the name of Sir John
Pound, and the other donors, presented the gifts, which were displayed
upon the quarter-deck. They included: A silver challenge shield to be
engraved with the names of the best
gunners; a silk ensign; a ship's bell
with chased silver brackets; a silver
model of the Tower of London; two
silver fruit dishes; and a cheque for
£260 4s Id to be used to provide gunnery prizes

A Bouthwark rector states that
many unemployed in his parish find
themselves unable to take advantage
of railway work in Canada becauBe
they have to pay their fare.
Canada leads the world in railway
mileage based on population. She
haa a mile of railway for every 2H0
people. The next best is the United
States, witn a ratio of one mile to
378 persons. Canada has 21,390miles
of steam and electric railway, and is
no mean maritime power, rankings
seventh. She has 7,000 registered
vessels, 100 lighthouses, lightships,
etc., and twenty-eight life-saving stations. In tonnage of vessels built in
1905 was 21,865, nnd the total shipping was 76,000,000 tons.
Saved br • Cipher.
The story Is told of how a neatlj
-instructed cipher saved Sir John Tre
vanion's life. This cavalier was takes
prisoner and locked up In Colchestei
castle to await bis execution. On the
second day of bis confinement the Jallei
brought him a letter, whlcb, as far as
the warder of the castle could discover,
was merely a note of condolence from
a friend. But tbe letter had been concocted on a cipher to which Sir John
had a clew. Every third letter after n
punctuation mark of any kind was to
tell. What he made out waa this:
"Panel at east end of chapel slides."
On the following evening the prlsonei

passed the panel had done its work

Mrs. T. J. Tobin, 368 King street,
Quebec, wife of the circulation manager of L'Evenement, is one of the
best known and most estimable
ladies in the city, and ber statement
that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cured
her of a very severe attack of indigestion will bring hope to similar
sufferers. Mrs. Jobin says: "About
a year ago I was seized with indigestion which had an alarming effect
upon my health. Day by day my
strength grew less. I suffered from
terrible headaches, dizziness, palpitation of the heart and sleeplessness.
I was in this condition for about six
months. I consulted two doctors
and although I followed their treatment carefully it did not help me in
the least. Last October, seeing that
instead of regaining my health I was
growing worse, I decided to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. After I had
taken the second box there was a
change for the better, and after taking the pills for a month longth the
trouble entirely disappeared, and I
am again enjoying the best of
health. I have so,.much confidence in
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills that I ai-
wavs keep them in the house and
take tliem occasionally as a safeguard."

What Do They Cure V
The above question Is often asked icon-,
cernlng Dr. Pierce's two leading medicines,  "(iolden, Medical  Discovery" and.
"Favorite Prescription."
The apswer, Is that "Golden Medt-.|
Discovery" is-■»: most potent alterative or
Mood-imrilier, arid tonic or • tnvlgorator.-
SXid.acts, e.spi nially favorably, ln a cuea-
tlve wcy-upon all the mucoua. lining surfaces,. as, of the nasal passages, throat,
bn-oiu'hiOii- tubes, stomach, bowels and'
olndiler; curing n. large per cent, of catarrhal cssos wbother the diseaso affects the
n&s^l passages, .the throat, larynx, bronchia.. st'.;i_ni'.li (as catarrhal dyspepsia),
bbwols (as mucous diarrhea), bladder,
interns orrothor pelvic organs. Evonnln
tn« cbronto or ulecratlvo stages of these
tulections, it is often successful ln affect-
!«g cures..
Tho"Favorite Prescription" ls advised
for thn euro of one class of diseases—those
necullar wuuknossos, derangements and
[-regularities incident tu wninen only. It
IS a poivei-fiil yot gently acting Invigorating tonio and nervine. For weak worn-
out, overworked womnn—no matter whati
has caused the break-down, "I'livnrito
Prescrltiilon " will bo found ftioi-t effective
In building up tbo strcngith, regulating
the womanly functions, ssbdulng pain
and bringing about a healthy, vigorous
condition of the.whole system.
A book of particulars wraps each bottlo
giving tbe fiin-tiheof both medicines and
quoting what, scores of eminent medical authors, whose works are consulted
by physicians of all tho schools of practice
as guides.In proscribing, say of eaoaln-
gredient  entering Into these medicines.
The words of pr&lao bestowed on the
several ilngrodlents entering Into Boctor
Pierce'a modIclnes by auch writers should
have more weight than any amount of
non - professional testlm-rials, because
such men are writing for-tbe guidance of
their medical brethren audi know whereof'
thoy speak.
Both medicines are non-alcoboHxt, non-
secret, and contain no harmful hablt-
formlngdrugs, boing composedr' glyeerlo
extracts of tho roots of native. uiii.rlc.an
medicinal forest plants They are both,
mild by dealers in medicine. You can't
afford .to accept as a substitute for one of
these incilieliiim of Itnown composition,
any secret nnitrum.

oilloa Colbeck, as follows :
"That having, carefully considered
fchepetition, presented to this Conncil

"Be it resolved that as that as the

and that they have uot otherwise complied with the Act.
"Be it further, resolved that this
Council take no notion in the matter

THE BEAT OF THE PULSE.
f<   Varies   Greatly   In   Different   Per.
•ons   nntl   Condltlona.
The pulse of women generally beats
at a sll_btly faster rate than that of
men. It may be said that when a person ls at rest bis pulse, that of any
adult may be from seventy-five to
•eighty times a minute. Greet variation
-exists In different Individuals In rer
spect of the number of beats. After
exercise tbe pulse quickens because of
tbe stimulation of the heart, and the
same result applies to the effects of
taking food. A dose of alcohol will ulso
stimulate tbe pulse somewhat, just as
the use of tobacco, especially In excess,
will tend to bave an opposite effect-
namely, tbat of lowering tbe rate of
tbe pulse, because of the depression of
the heart which results. In fevers and
Inflammatory diseases the pulse rate
tends to be very much Increased nnd
also In respect of Its character. Instead
of beating quietly the blood vessel In
such cases exhibits a very full and
bounding movement. On the other
band, wbere depression exists and tbe
temperature of the body falls, the
pulse may be unnaturally slow and Its
character weak.. Pbyslcians are accustomed to distinguish otber characteristics ln tbe pulse, such as become valuable bints In the discovery and determination of disease. Tbe practical lesson we learn bere Is tbat where tlie
PUlse continues for any length of time
to have Ita beats quickened to an unnatural degree and wbere especially a
.rise of the tempers ture or beat of the
/'tody accompanies these symptoms -we
onght to suspect some kind of feverish
condition or other to be represented.
Tbe pulse alone forms a valuable
enough guide to this state at the body,
but Its value la very much increased If
to the Information given us by the
pulse we add tbat which the use of tbe
thermometer supplies.
NAME8 OF DAYS.
i
m.   Latin   and   Saxon   Tern—i   From
Which The? Are Derived.
•Our names for each day are derived
from the Saxons, who probably borrowed the week from some eastern
ipeople, substituting names of their
•own divinities for those of tbe classical gods, as Is easily seen when ths
names are tabulated:
Latin. Sunn. English.
Die* Soils Sun's day Sunday.
Dlea Lunae Moon's day....Monday.
Dl«a Martla Tlw'a day Tueaday.
Dlea Mercuril.. Woden's day..Wednesday.
Dlea Jovla Thor'a day.... Thursday.
Dlea Venerla... Frlga's day... Friday.
Dies Batumi....Beterne'e day. Saturday.
j' Among the ancients the belief ln ths
'Influence of the planets upon the Ut*
* ot men was so strong that many ln se-
* lectlng tbelr daily ornaments  would
* wear only tbe gem associated with the
\planet of tbe duy. Thus ou Sunday
■only yellow gems snd gold should
adorn tbe fingers. Pearls and white
stones, excepting diamonds, belonged
to tbe Moon day. Tuesday, day of Mars,
claimed rubles and all stones of fiery
luster. Thursday, Thor's day, demanded amethysts and deep colored stones
of sanguine tint, while Friday, dominated by Venus, reigned over the emerald, color of Jealousy, which Is love's
shadow. Saturday, dedicated to Saturn, oldest of tbe gods,  bad for Its
'distinctive talisman tbe most splendid
-of  all  gems,  the  diamond.
GIRLS ENTERING
WOMANHOOD
FIND BILEANS A BOON.
Mothers who have daughters just
on the critical oorderland over
which the girl passes into the fuller
life of womanhood, will find Bileans
a great boon. They make ricii, red
blood, and strengthen and invigorate the internal organs involved in
the great change. Mrs. T. Beadle,
of Home Place, Toronto, says: "My
daughter, Elsie (13), was fei ling fat
from well this winter. She com
plained of frequent headache, ana
was always weakly, tired and
drowsy. She seemed altogether
without energy or strength. Each
morning her tongue was coated and
her appetite failed. She was sometimes so dizzy that on stooping she
almost fell, and she was also troubled a great deal with constipation.
One single box of Bileans made a
world of difference in her, and so I
continued to give her this remedy.
Within a. few weeks they built her
up wonderfully and they are keeping her in the best of" health."
Bileans also cure anaemia, green
sickness, _ debility, sick headache
constipation, piles, rheumatism, sciatica, arid all liver? and kidney
■ailments. They tone tip. the- system
and enable it to throw off colds,
chills, etc. All druggists and stores
sell Bileans at SOc. a box, or obtainable from the Bilean Co., Toronto,
for price.    6 boxes sent foi" $2.50.

BABY'S BEST FRIEND.
Baby's Own Tablets have saved

is no other metjicine to equal them
for stomnch and bowel troubles,
colds, simple fevers-or teething troubles. They are good for children of
all ages—from the new born babe to
the well grown child. And the mother has the guaraintee of a government analyst that they do not contain opiates or harmful drugs. Mrs.
John C. Gildart, Prosser Brook, N.
B., says: "I have proved that
Baby's Own Tablets are a great help
to mothers, and are baby's best
friend. They act almost like magic
and I will always keep them in the
house." The Tablets are sold by
druggists or by mail at 25 cents a
box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,  Brockville, Ont.

Bla Time For Drinking:.
In the days of river driving on the
Kennebec river in Maine old Uncle Jim
Gilbert was a well known character.
He was hale and hearty and had an
■enormous appetite.   The men used to i
come down the river with a drive of |
togs and get a meal at a tavern In
Augusta.    One morning, arriving late ,
and with appetite sharpened, old Dn- |
cle Jim sat down with the flrst set of
men and ate diligently during the time
these men made a meal.   A new set of
men  came  and  still   Uncle  Joe  ate
ateadlly.    A third set came, and the
tavern keeper, becoming alarmed, tried
to hurry up the protracted meal by
-saying, "Better drink your coffee, un-
' cle, and have another cup!"
"No," said the old man.    "I never
drink till I'm half through!"

Delightful Impudence.
Melba admires the independence of
her fellow Australians, but on one occasion she had rather a pronounced
experience with what she calls their
"delightful impudence." Sbe had

light of simplicity npon the charactsr

The Poet and the Beauty.
One of the finest bouses in southern
England ls Penhurst Place, the birthplace of Sir Philip Sidney. Under the
trees of Its park Edmund Waller paid
his addresses to the haughty Lady
Dorothea, whom he celebrated as Such-
arlssa. But the heart of Lady Dorothea
Sidney—who was the most beautiful
woman of her time—was untouched by
Waller's amatory verses, and she rejected tbe poet In favor of tbe Earl of
Sunderland. Many years afterward tbe
countess met Waller and, reminding
bim sentimentally of tbe old days at
Penhurst, asked bim wben be would
again write verses about her. "When,
madam," said the poet rudely, "you are
aa young and as handsome as you were
then."
Properties! of Chlorine.
Chlorine Is a greenish yellow gas
with a disagreeable smell. It Is soluble in cold water, only slightly soluble
In hot water. It destroys color in wet
fabrics and ls also a strong disinfectant Both of these properties are said
to be due to Its power of decomposing
hydrogen compounds, such as water,
combining with tbe hydrogen and liberating oxygen, wbicb In a nascent state
oxidizes coloring matter, rendering It
colorless. As a disinfectant it oxidizes
the germs of disease and Is in consequence largely used for this purpose.

BRONCHITIS IS
'COLD ON THE CHEST*
And   tha   Most Prompt    and   Satisfactory
Treatment   Is
Dr. Chase's Syrup of Unseed and Turpentine
Acute bronchitis is none other
than what is commonly known as
"cold on the chest" and is marked
by difficult breathing and tightness
or soreness of the chest.
Aa a preventative Dr. Chase's
S.vrup of Linseed and Turpentine
will, if taken in time, positively
prevent the symptoms of bronchitis
or cold in the chest.
As a cure it will entirely overcome even the long-standing cases of
chronic bronchitis, and it should
not be forgotten that, when neglected, bronchitis usually returns time
and time again until the victim is
worn out by its debilitating effects.
It is largely the extraordinary success of Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine as a cure for
bronchitis that has made this treatment so popular. People quite rightly reason that what will cure bronchitis will make short work of croup
and ordinary coughs and colds.
Mrs.  Richmond Withrow,  Shuben-
aeadie, Hants Co., N.S., writes: "I
have used Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine with good success. My second daughter was troubled with bronchitis from the age of
three weeks. Oftentimes I thought
she would choke to death. The several remedies we got did not seem to
be of much use, but the flrst dose of
Dr. Chnse's S.vrup of Linseed and
Turpentine brought relief, and further
treatment made a thorough cure.
This trouble used to come back from
time to time, but the cure is now
permanent. Dr. Chase's Syrup of
Linseed and Turpentine has saved
us many doctor bills, and I would
not be without it in the house for
many times its cost."

EAR me, 1 lust hale to flx
flowers. I never have Just
the right thing to put them
In," Bald, plaintively, Nancy
Upton, a young bride, one morning, as
she looked ln dismay at a large truy of
flowers sent ln by tho gardener.
"Now wouldn't you think, with those
dozens of cut-glass bowls, sliver pitchers and pottery Jugs I got for wedding
presents, I'd always have something my
flowers would look well ln—yet here I
go, falling back on these two old
pressed-glass vases I hud in boarding
school, and that hideous old mujodlca
thing that looks like a soup tureen."
"My dear,  you   will   have  to  start   a
school of instruction for wedddlng present givers ln what vases not to buy,
laughed Sally Blair, her guest.
"You know the only reason you cling
to those old relics ls because of their
big mouths. 1 wonder why not one
person in ten ever thinks of usefulness
in buying brlc-a-brac or vases. It's the
more remarkable since you can get such
perfect pottery and glass in the most
delectable   shapes.
"The other day, when I was mousing
around In a china store, I saw any
amount of new vases and bowls that
would have aclighted your soul. I don't
suppose they cost half so much, for Instance, as that Satsuma jug of yours
that has nn opening about as big as a
thimble; but if you had them now you
wouldn't be letting all those perfect
flowers get faded while you hunted for
something to put them In, and scolded
steadily meanwhile."
NEW TWO-TONED POTTERY
•What were they? Do tell me, and
I'll make Billy buy me some when he
goes In town tomorrow," cried the little
hostess in the supreme confidence of
bridehood in "Billy's" willingness to do
h"weUPthefe's a lot of the most fascinating: German two-toned pottery new
this fall. The colors are gay, yet not
the screamy kind-bright shaded orange
with vivid green arabesques on It,
and queer deep reds with designs in
trass greens or bright blue, pale yellow
with a. blue all-over pattern, and a
beauty In green and white. They are
Just the things to brighten that dark
corner over there, or to mak" your sitting   room look   cheerful   on a   bleak
*%ut the shapes are the best part of
this pottery; all have great, wide
mouths, no matter if you get some of
the many-handled, squatty Jugs or the
tall JarB, Just the thing for that golsen-
alow."
"But the cost, Sally, the cost! Remember, I'm Just going to housekeeping."
•Strange to say, this pottery Is not so
very expensive. I saw a dream of a
bowl ln queer aalmon pinka and green
for Ki.
"Then there was some Interesting
English pottery, too, ln more solid colors, dull, crackly looking, highly glazed
yellows and cadet blues, and one stunning llttle vase, bright Prussian blue,
just the thing to bring out those yellow
marigolds Billy ls always raving over.
"But If you do not wish to buy as expensive things as thla pottery ware,
there are any amount   of   vases   and
"Bits
bowls in glass that will cost you next to
nothing. They are in all sizes and
shapes, and lots of them can be bought
for less than $1.
"There are fascinating baskets ln
clear glass with a heavy ribbed handle,
Just the Bhape of those tall, slender-
based, spreading-mouthed ones you see
In Watteau's pictures. Any kind of
flowers look lovely  In them.
"Other baskets, Just new this season,
are flat with broad gilt rims and colored handles, pink and blue, green and
lavender. They will be splendid for the
centre of the table to hold sweet peas
or nasturtiums
"The Colonial vases might suit you,
I think, they are so substantial and
roomy, yet the lines are so simple and
graceful.
"Other vases In clear glass had queer,
bulging shapes, or low bowls with curling rims,  and  there were only one or
two, very slender stemmed and widen1-
into flowered tips, that will hold a do.
lilies or a few Iris blooms.
"Those Iridescent vases that have a
flat, solid base, then grow rather slender
and spread like a cone to a very broad,
fluted rim, are Just as popular as ever.
For my part, I do not think you can And
any vase that Is prettier or more generally useful.
"They are cheaper than they used to
be, too, I am glad to say; and so is that
other glass that is almost clear, save for
the faintest glittery touch of Iridescence.
"A glass of a yellow brownish tint
has some charming shapes, especially
ln rather tiny vases modeled In flower
petals to hold a few violets.
"Most flowers look well ln the pale
yellow radium glass, which has many
of tbe same designs and a good deal ol
the rich tinting of that awfully expensive art glass that Mrs. Jones Bent
you. There ls one vase in a rich deep
yellow, with a top that turns over a
slender stem like a great yellow Illy,
that Is particularly pretty for a flower
or two. ,
"Of course, cut-glass vases ore always
lovely, but they are usually heavy,
and somehow the shapes, as you know
to your sorrow, are never Just rlgnt.
But then, are some pretty new ones
shown this season that have floral designs cut on plain glass, something on
the rock crystal order. They are
shaped like an old-fashioned quart
measure. .,
"Oh, Nancy, I almost forgot! You
must tell Billy *o stop at a Japanese
store and get you some of those frogs,
turtles, fish and crabs that are hollowed out and make a few flowers stand
up splendidly when you put them iu a
"You can make something like them
yourself by getting strips of tin and
twisting them into shape, only, of
course they will not look nearly so artistic in the vase.
"By the way, lf you have not for-
aotten your raffla lessonB you might
let some cheap quart or pint measures
snd weave a covering and handle to
them to make them look Japanesey.
They would be fine to have out on
your venanda. „
"There Nancy, don't you ever tell me
I'm not your friend; I've talked myself
hoarse over your old vases; but 111 for-
Ehe you if you only_get Billy to buy
you something that will keep you from
growling every time Patrick brings you
• in his pc.lea."
PROPORTION IN COLOR ANET
FURNISHINGS
PROPORTION ! ln *l_pme decoration
cannot be much, understood, else
why is it so conspicuously absent
from most homes? Occasionally we find'
a perfect Home, where '.proportion was
not thought of, but instead the home-
maker had an inborn sense of fltness
which stood her ln good stead.
Proportion, ln-decoration, is not very
tangible; most of us can understand it
as regards size, but fctoportlon ln color
is more difficult to grasp.
Most of us know. If we only stop to
think about it, that a large, heavy
chair should not be placed beside a
small, dainty table, and vice versa;
that a small room should not be crowded with massive pieces of furniture, and
that the walls of a low-celllnged room
should not be divided or broken four
or five times.
Proportion in ornamentation ls another Important point to be considered,
and to determine Just how much ornamentation and how much plain surface
goes to make the best sum-total is a
difficult proposition. A small box is
richer with part of it carved and tho
rest left plain for contrast than if it
were carved all over. And this ls true
of the treatment of walls and ceilings,
for costliness and elaboration require
a plain setting to appear to the best advantage.
Proportion, in color, Is the hardest to
determine, and requires a trained eye
and sensitive feelings.     Those wbo do
not possess these two things would do
well to put themselves In the hands of ».
good decorator or trusty friend when
choosing their color scheme. .
It is hard to know Just how much or
one color goes best with another. We>
all know that there should only be a
limited amount of a strong, heavy color
In a room, but Just how much that limited amount ls few can estimate correctly.
Sometimes a color when put with another detracts from It; others set It off.
So it is important to choose colors or
shades that are mutually advantageous.
Green and blue, when in the right proportion, are a perfect combination. But.
often we see the two together where:',
the green Is too strong and the blua.-
looks weak and lnslpib\ or where thei
blue Is too intense, so that the greem
looks sick and dirty. __
The Intensity and consplcuousness ot
a wall or background should be governed by the furniture and hangings. If m
room Is to have heavy furniture, upholstered ln plain dark materials ana
heavy, dark curtains and portieres, the
walls may be somewhat gay; but if thet
room is to be furnished daintily ana
with light, figured materials, the wallas
should be subdued.
The home-maker who possesses tne
sense of proportion, combined with a
sense of fitness and suitability, cannot
go far wrong; and her home should hava
a feeling of rest, of comfort, which is'
one of the surest roads to health and
happiness. DOROTHY TUKE.
WHAT DO PEOPLE READ IN
LIBRARIES.?
JN tne reading room of tho publio
library in a certain city there are
five large tables. The other night
the Impertinent One was curious
enough to examine each of these
tables, to see what books her neighbors had left there. The library was
nearly empty, and she had plenty of
opportunity for observation.
On table No. 1 there lay six books.
Two of these were late novels and
three others light or sensational Action a few years older. But quite In
the- corner, looking rather ashamed of
the company he was found in, lay dear
eld Mr. Pickwick, and as the Impertinent One picked him reverentlyJ up a
strip of paper covered with jGreek
characters fell out.
The Impertinent One thanked heaven
for one scholar and passed on.
Table No. 2 hnd evidently been occupied by a student preparing his next
day's work. There wero literal translations of Latin, French and German
masters and an "Introduction to Plane
Trigonometry."
But the only open book was "The
Bab Ballads," open at the tale of Alice
Brown, the' robber's lovely daughter,
and the Impertinent One smiled all the
way across to Table No. 3;
Two persons of widely varying tastes
bad recently used this table. On ono
—de were three detective storieB and a
treatise on "Camp Life in the "Woods";
on the other were two "General Histories," a "History of Natural Philosophy" and a translation of the Koran,
which last stood at tho boundary line,
and rested confident^ against the most
lurid of the detective stories.
Table No. 4 was exclusively poetical.
Keats, Wordsworth, Tennyson and
Spenser here held sway, and as the
Impertinent One glanced at them a
piece Of paper fluttered to the ground.
As she picked it up she read on It
"Oh, heart of poesie and soul of flre!"
The earnest-eyed young man at tbe
end of the table claimed It at Just this
minutes: "I'm sure the next line ended
In 'lyre,' " muttered the Impertinent
One to herself, as she hastened away.
At Table No. 6 more light novels
caught her sight at one side, but the
other looked strangely familiar. There
were a volume of "Ktng Lear," a biography of Heine and Henry George's
"The Land Question," and a copy of
that dear poet who accompanies the
Impertinent One wherever she goes.
Then, all at once, she realized with a
start that she was back to her own
table again, and that the fifth volume,
on which her hand rested, was the
copy of Poe she had been reading before' she left.
"Well," remarked the Impertinent
One, settling down to a half hour of
solid enjoyment, "they have better taste
tban I thought they bad I"
i
«r*
AS OTHERS SEE US
BURNS to the contrary notwithstanding, I don't believe there
are many of us lying awake at
nights pining for a chance to see
ourselves that way.
It wouldn't add materially to Mrs.
Jones' happiness when she started
down the street, filled with the conviction that her new fall costume was
a dream, If she could know that Mrs.
Brown, who was watching her
through her sitting room window, had
decided that her skirt hung badly and
ber bat waB atrociously unbecoming.
It is never soothing for the mother,
who has spent ten years trying to put
into practice the theories she imbibed
in her college days for the development of tbe Infant mind, to be told
that her Jimmy and Sally are the
slowest children of comprehension In
the primary grade.
Eavesdroppers never hear good of
themselves, but there ls something
almost pitlfbl about the Jar that comes
to the Innocent and involuntary eavesdropper who hears her best friend's
opinion of herself.
"That's an awfully flattered picture
of J.," remarked a friend of this type
to J.'s sister, "but, of course, I
wouldn't tell her so," and J., passing
the door at this Inopportune moment,
pitches the words and spends an un-
' **--fortable quarter of an hour.
...he had been a llttle afraid at flrst
that the photograph was fiatterlng,
but every one had assured her that lt
was merely an'excellent likeness of
her at her best. Now she ls sure lt
was all said to please her, and there is
a reAectlon upon her Intellect, as well
as upon her looks.
Who Is there among Us who doesn't
begin to tremble at the first sound of
the words: "Now, you mustn't be offended with me for saying it, and please
remember I only came to you as a
friend." It Is only the individual of
rare serenity who can refrain on such
an occasion from repeating King Louis'
whimsical cry: "God protect me from
my friends—I can take care of my enemies myself."
Now, of course, there are times when
"speaking out" Is necessary. If the
workers In the world were not told of
the faults In the wares they carry to
their special markets they would never
know  now  to Improve.    If the young
§Irle Just starting out In life could never
e 'vnrued of breaker.-; ahead by those
whi   are wiser and more  experienced,
tlm o would be more tears shed than
them are already.
a word to the wise ls sufficient, and
when we have sufficient wisdom to mko
the timely hint or suggestion for what
it Is worth and profit by It, without
getting our feelings hurt, all well and
(food. But the vast majority 3f foolish
mortals are better contented to jog
along through dally happenings, not-
seeing themselves as others see them..
SELF-WORSHIP
IT'S queer, isn't It, how each one of
us adores his own personal selt
much more than any other person
or any other thing In the world? We
are all of us self-centred; we see everything ln relation to ourselves, so much
so, Indeed, that lt is often very hard for
us to "put ourselves ln somebody else's
place."
If some one else says an unkind word
to us and also to the person with us,
we have a certain amount of sympathy
for the person who Is with us, but nothing like the sympathy we have for ourselves. Indeed, half the sorrow In the.
world is caused by excessive sympathy
for one's self, whereas, lf we had looked
out and seen how many other people-
were suffering from much keener sorrows, we should really have considered,
ourselves blessed.
Of course, there ls really some excuse
for us, for do we not see ourselves as
the centres of the universe?   Does not
the sun rise on one side of us and set
on the other side, and when we move do -
not the sun. moon and all the planets ■
move with us?   Why. then, should we-
not deify ourselves?
Self-worship Is really necessary up to.
a certain point, for without It we should,
never get along In the world at all. But"
don't let It go so far that you become-
selfish and Incapable of sympathy.
TRAMP BALLS
CALI JO parties, which flourished
a few years back, are being
superseded by tramp balls. If
you have a capacious barn for your-
ball so much the better; If not, clear-
your rooms of all their pretty trappings, cover the carpets with a ducking, or, If you have rugs, take thero.
up, leaving the floors bare.
Festoon   the. walls   with   hay   and*
bring in boxes,'nail kegs and rough
benches for seats. Tell all your guests
to come as hoboes, organ grinders and
mendicants  of  various  kinds.    Serve.)
a Dutch lunch, and offer a prize for|
the most effective costume.   The morei
old-fashioned country reels and dances i
that    are    Introduced   into    the   pro
gramme the better.
Home and Its Influence on Children        "•" ^ELY°V* 0WN * '
WOMEN are Horn home-makers,
and every intelligent, happy
woman enjoys adding In every
way to the beauty and comfort of her
surroundings. She desires her home to
be attractive. It is the background of
er life, and she wishes to work for it
by organizing, managing, studying and
endeavoring in every way possible to
add to its homelike qualities. We know
what an influence environment has upon us, and how Important it is that it
should be restful and cheerful. This is
especially so in regard to children, lt
is, therefore, necessary to have their
rooms bright and free from unnecessary
adornment, so that they can play happily without being in danger of spoiling
the furniture and having to be constantly reminded by that bugbear ofx
childhood, the word "don't."
The   Influence   of   good  coloring and
.liii'inonlous surroundings will have their
'SBffect upon  the   young minds, always
ready to receive impressions. Some
mothers, with a view to saving their
carpets, will keep the shades constantly
lowered, and the dreariness and gloom
caused by this prevailing habit cannot
fail to leave its Impress on the young
minds.
It ls necessary to realize the importance of Betting before children good
examples of form and color. Uniformed
minds and undeveloped senses must be
preserved from contact with bad ln art
as well as ln morals. They must have
high Ideals In beauty, and the Importance of truth can be taught by the
absence of shams In the home. It ls
also Important that the home alms at
simplicity and does not exaggerate any
Of the prevailing styles. It is so easy
for children to fall Into the habit of
exaggeration. They have such vivid
imaginations that all kinds of Illusions
pass through their young minds, mil
constant watchfulness Is needed to prevent them from exaggerating too freely.
COUNSEL
THIS applies to everybody, tut the
young married woman should
take lt to heart especially. I
Bay the young married woman, because those who have been married
several years have long ago discovered that it Is. the best policy.
It was all right to have a girl confidante before you were married, but
much better lf you ceased to be so
ooniidlng from the time you. got engaged. Men dread these Intlmute
friendships, for they know Just how
much trouble ls likely to arise from
thein. .
One young man, as soon as be had
popped the question and been accepted, said to his fiancee: "Who ls your
girl confldante?" Another, more exacting than the flrst, asked his sweetheart as a favor to him not to be
so Intimate wltb her girl chum as she
kad uwa.
Caring for Your Brushes
I
BRUSHES for either household or
toilet use wear longer and do better service while they last If
they are well taken care of.
Put your nail and tooth brushes In
such a position that all the water will
drain from them. The tiny nickel hooks
which are sold among bathroom appurtenances nowadays make very satisfactory resting places for toothbrushes.
A camel's hair Ilesh brush should be
thoroughly rinsed from snap, dried and
aired after each using. The hair should
be combed out wilh a coarse comb every
few days to prevent its matting.
Hair brushes are best cleaned ln warm
water and ammonia, or warm water anil
borax, or even warm water nnd washing
soda, but they must be rinsed thoroughly ln clear water. If you can dry them
ln plenty of sunshine, so much the bet-
Housc'nild^brushes should be washed
regularly,,.;A good solution 1 or this
purpose *_s made by dissolving H pound
of washing soda In a quart of hot water.
Tb— may fee bottled and used at any
time.
When you are ready to use the solution, put a tablespoonful into a quart ot
water and wash your brushes in this.
A little soap In addition for the soft
one Is a good thing. Rinse In cold wate*
and dry In the open  air.
Long-handled brushes must be lump
up by the heads ami the short ones
can be suspended by a piece of twtno.
Don't let them rest on their bristles,
and remember that a hearth brush will
last twice ns long lf 't ls ke.it hung up.
Clean paint brushes with turpentine
and varnish brushes with spirits ot
wine.
