TROVE was three days In Brier
Dale after he came out of the
woods. The filly was now a
sleek and shapely animal, past
three years of age. He began at once
breaking ber to the saddle, and, that
done, mounting, he started for Robin's
Inn. He carried a game rooster ln a
sack for tbe boy Tom. All came out
with a word of welcome. Even the
small dog grew noisy with delight
Tunk Hosely, who had come to work
for Mrs. Vaughn, took the mare and
led her away, his shoulder leaning with
an added sense of horsemanship. Polly began to burry dinner, fussing with
the table and changing the position of
every dish until it seemed as If she
would never be quite satisfied. Covered with the sacred old china and table
linen of ber grandmother, it had, when
Polly was done with It, a very smart
appearance indeed. Then she called
the boys and bade them wash their
hands and faces and whispered a warning to each, while her mother announced that dinner was ready.
"Pnul. what's an adjective?" said ths
teacher as they sat down.
"A word applied to a noun to qualify
or limit Its meaning," the boy answered glibly.
"Right!   And what adjective would
you apply to this table?"
The boy thought a moment.
"Grand!" said he tentatively.
"Correct!    I'm  going to  have Just
snch a dinner every day on my farm."
"Then you'll have to have Polly too,"
■aid Tom Innocently.
"Well, you can spare her."
"No, sir," the boy answered.   "Tou
ain't good to ber.   She cries every time
you go away."
T".'cre was an awkward silence, and
the widow began to laugh and Polly
and Trove to blush deeply.
"Maybe she Whispered, an' be give
her a talkln' to." said Paul.
"Have you heard about Ezra Tower?" Bald Mrs. Vaughn, shaking her
bead at the boys and changing the
topic with shrewd diplomacy.
"Much; but nothing new," said
"Well,  he swears he'll never cross
tbe  Fadden bridge or speak to anybody In Pleasant valley."
"The taxes. He don't believe ln improvements, and when he tried to make
a speech in town meeting they all jeered him. There ain't any one good
enough for him to speak to now but
bimself an'—an' his Creator."
In the midst of dinner they beard
an outcry In the yard. Tom's gamecock had challenged the old rooster,
and the two were leaping and striking
with foot nnd wing. Before help came
toe old rooster was badly cut ln the
neck and breast. Tunk rescued him
and brought blm to tbe wood shed,
wbere Trove sewed up his wounds.
He had scarcely finished when there
came a louder outcry among the fowls.
Looking out they saw a gobbler striding slowly up the path and leading tbe
gamecock witb a firm bold on the
back of his neck. Tbe whole flock of
fowls were following. The rooster held
back and came on with long but unequal strides. Never halting, tbe turkey led him Into the full publicity of
the open yard. Now the cock was lifted no bli feet come only to tbe top of
the grass; now bis bead was bent low,
and bis feet fell heavily. Through it
nil the gobbler bore himself with dignity and firmness. There was no show
of wrath or unnecessary violence. He
swung the cock around near tbe foot
of the maple tree and walked him back
and then returned with him. Half his
Journey the poor cock was reaching
for the grass and was then lowered
quickly bo he had to walk with bent
Again and again tbe gobbler walked
up and down with him before tbe
assembled flock. Hens snd geese
cackled londly and clapped their
wings. Applause and derision rose
high each Ume the poor cock swung
around reaching for the grass, but the
gobbler continued bis even stride, deliberately and, as it seemed, thoughtfully, applying correction to the quarrelsome bird. Walking the grass tips
had begun to tire those reaching legs.
The cock soon straddled along with a
serious eye and an open mouth, but tbe
gobbler gave him no rest. When at
length be released bis hold the gamecock lay weary and wild eyed, with no
more fight in him than a bunch of
rags. Soon he rose and ran away and
hid himself in the stable. The culprit
fowl was then tried, convicted and
sentenced to the block.
. "H's Ike /ate of all fighter* that havs
only'a selfish cause," said tl—' t-acher.
He was sitting on the grass, Polly
and Tom and Paul beside him.
"Look here." said he suddenly.   "I'll
show you another fight."
All gathered about him. Down
among the grass roots an ant stood
facing a big, hairy spider. The ant
backed away presently and made a
little detour, the spider turning quickly and edging townrd bim. The ant
stood motionless, the spider on tiptoe,
with daggers drawn. The big, hniry
spider /enped like a Hon to Its prey.
Tbey could 6ee ber striking with the
fatal knives, her grent body quivering
with tierce energy. The little ant was
bidden beneath it. Borne uttered a cry
of pity, and Paul was for taklug sides.
"Wait a moment," said the teacher,
restraining bis hand. The spider had
begun to tremble in a curious manner.
"Look now," said Trove, with some
Her legs had begun to let go and
were straightening stiff on both sides
of her. In a moment she tilted sideways aud lay still. They saw a twinkle of bluck legs aud the ant making
oil in the stubble. They picked up the
spider's body; it was now only an empty shell. Her big stomach had been
torn away and lay in little strips and
chunks dowu at the roots of the stubble.
"It's the end of a bit of history,"
said the teacher as he tore away the
curved blades of the spider and put
them in Polly's palm.
"Let's see wbere the ant goes."
He got dowu upon bis bands and
knees and watched the little black
tiger, now hurrying for his loir. In a
moment he was joined by otbers, and
presently tbey came into a smooth little avenue under the grass. It took
tbem into tbe edge of tbe meadow,
around a stalk of mullein, wbere there
were a number of webs.
"There's where she lived—this hairy
old woman," said the teacher—"up
there lu that tower. See her snares in
the grass—four of them?"
He rapped on tbe stalk of mullein
with a stick, peering iuto tbe dusty
little caveru of silk near tlie top of It.
"Sure enough! Here is wbere sbe
lived, for tbe house Is empty and
there's living prey in the snares."
"What a weird old thing!" said Polly.
"Can you tell us more about her?"
"Well, every summer," said Trove,
"a great city grows up In the field.
There are shady streets In It, no wider
than a cricket's back, and millions living In nest and tower and cave and
cavern. Among its people are toilers
and idlers, laws and lawbreakers,
thieves and highwaymen, grand folk
and plain folk. Here ls the home of
tbe greatest criminal in tbe city of the
field. See! It Is between two leaves,
one serving as roof, tbe other as floor
and portico. Here is a long cable that
comes out of her sitting room and
slopes away to the big snare below.
Look at ber ebeets of silk In the grass.
It's like a washing that's been bung
out to dry. From each a slender cord
of silk runs to the main cable. Even
a fly's kick or a stroke of his tiny
wing must have gone up the tower and
shaken the floor of the old lady, maybe,
with a sort of thunder. Then she ran
out and down the cable to rush upon
her helpless prey.
"She wbb au arrant highwayman, this
old lady—a creature of craft and violence. She wns no sooner married than
she slew her husband—a timid thing
smaller than sbe—and nte him at one
meal. You know tbe ants are a busy

thoroughfare for their freight—eggs

she used to He and wait for them, and
woe to the little traveler lf she caught

knives. Then she would seize tbe egg

ants are cunning. They found her

grass jungle. I've no doubt she faced

climber, with lots of rope in her pocket,
was able to get away. The soldier ants

presently, with a deep sigh.

Mrs. Vaughn went above stairs with
the children.
Then Trove took Polly's hand. They
looked deeply Into each other's eyes a
moment, both smiling.
"It's your move," said she, smiling
as her glance fell.
' He moved all the checkers.
There came a breath of silence and a
great surge of happiness that washed
every checker ofl tbe board and left
the two with flushed faces. Then, as
Mrs. Vaughn was coming downstairs,
the checkers began to rattle Into position.
*T won," said he as the door opened.
"But he didn't piny fair," said Polly.
"Children, I'm afraid you're playing
more love than checkers," said the
widow. "You're both too young to
think of marriage."
Those two looked thoughtfully at th*

"It's yitr move," sold the,
checkerboard, Polly's chin resting on
her baud. She had begun to smile. I
"I'm sure Mr. Trove has no such
thought In his bead," said sbe, still
looking at the board. H
"Your mother Is right. Wo're both
very young," said Trove.
"I believe you're afraid of her," said
Polly, looking up at bim with a smile.
"I'm only thinking of your welfare,"
•aid Mrs. Vaughn gently. "Young love
Bhould be stored away, and if It keeps,
why, then It's all right."
"Like preserves!!' said Polly soberly,
as lf she were not able to see the point.
Against the protest of Polly and ber
mother Trove went to sleep in the
sugar shanty, a quarter of a mile or so
back In the woods. On his flrst.trip
with the drove he hnd developed fondness for sleeping out of doors. The
shanty was a rude structure of logs
with an open front. Tunk went ahead,
bearing a pine torch, while Trove followed, ths blanket over bis shoulder.

Prince    Rupert   Will    Be   a   Meating
Place for America and Asia.
Up the coast of British Columbia,
there is a land-locked bay on the
shores of which a national port is in
the making. Interest was first attracted to that spot when the Grand
Trunk Pacific Railway offered a prize
for a name for the western terminus.
Prince Rupert waa the name chosen
and it is to tliis Pacific port, named
for a- cavalier explorer, that the curious gaze of the Canadian public is
turned to-day.
Prince Rupert is about halfway between Vancouver and Skagway. Here
a "steel-bright arm" of the sea extends inland, encircling Kaien Island
and protected from the sweep of the
ocean by Digby Island. Between these
islands lies the main channel of-the
harbor. This inlet is sixteen miles
long, a mile in width, with an average depth of one hundred and fifty
feel. It has the rare advantage of
a straight entrance. The difference
between high and low tide is twenty-
five feet. As a great continental port
it possesses a wide harbor, with room
for an imposing fleet, an entrance of
easy access and deep water close up
to the shores, with shelter on all
Stretch of Undulating Land.
The city of Prince Rupert is to be
built on the northern shore of Kaien
Island, well in from the entrance and
near the head of the island. The Old-
field Range, which attains an elevation of 2,300 feet, runs down the centre of the island forming a picturesque ridge. Between the heights and
the harbor .is a Btretch of undulating
land about 7,000 feet in width and
along this strip Prince Rupert will be
The neighboring mainland is called the Tsimpsean Peninsula. The district is well-wooded with an abundance
of red and yellow cedar, spruce and
balsam. Already on the shore of
Kaien Island the city is in the making. Engineers and railway officials
are established in primitive offices,
while navvies, white, Japanese and Indian, are encamped among the trees.
The lodging-house for the engineering
staff boasts of a "club-room" on the
ground floor where newspapers, magazines., and "My Lady Nicotine" minister to the comfort of the members.
To  Be  An Abiding City.
At right angles to the water-front a
filank walk twelve feet wide has been
aid and along this thoroughfare several buildings are being erected,
among them two stores, a hospital,
the mess-house and residences for
railway officials. On a height fronting
the harbor a large hotel is being built.
Even now the wharf affords satisfactory accommodation for steamers.
Prince Rupert is to be solidly constructed from the foundation for it
is" to be an abiding city. Wide streets,
a thorough system of drainage and
extensive water supply are among the
provisions already considered. Above
any other British Columbian scene
of the present, it is the spot where
one may "see tilings growing." Within four years trains from Atlantic
ports will be running into this Pacific
terminus where "all change cars" for
the Orient. It will form a curious
meeting-place for America and Asia

Lady   Ernestine   was   well   known'
some years ago as an intrepid yachts-j
woman, with mnch more than a sn-,

kindred matters.   She applied to the i
Board of Trade for examination, with j
a view to obtaining a master's certificate, but was rebuffed, on the ground
that a woman conld not qualify as aj

open to her in many universities.
Lady Ernestine has been a nurse
ts well as a sailor and a horse-breeder; and she married, at the age of

Famous Dealer Prefers Them to Tigresses  and  Was  Never  Bitten.
"There is not so much danger in
handling snakes as persons think. I
have handled snakes for twenty years
and never have been bitten. After you
have studied snakes, their habits and
manner of living, you will have little
fear of them. In fact, I would rather
deal with any kind of a snake than a
tigress, for instance, or a wildcat."
This little discourse on snakes was
made by Otto E. Eggeling. who is well
known in Harlem, and who for many
years, both in Germany and in this
country, has been handlings snakes,
procuring them from India, South
America and other parts of the world
for various menageries and zoological
He was just preparing to ship a box
of rattlesnakes which had come from
the Far West to Berlin, where they
are to be placed on exhibition. Without the least trace of fear Mr. Eggeling put his hand ritrht in the box, and,
catching one of the rattlers by the
back of the neck, lifted the reptile
out and held him up for inspection.
He was a fine specimen, nearly six
feet long, and looked like an ugly
customer, but in Mr. Eggeling's hands
he was like a pet cat.
"It all depends how you handle
them," said Mr. Eggeling. "The most
poisonous snake when grabbed at the
back of the neck is powerless. Never
show in the least that you are afraid
when you meet a snake. Those reptiles are quick to notice fear and they
tajte advantage of it. Instead, show
that you are master and the snake
will disappear."     •

By Dr. Williams' Pink Pills After Six
Doctors Had Failed to be of Benefit
That gnawing pain ln the stomach,
sometimes shooting up Into the chest,
often producing a choking sensation ln
the throat; fierce pains around the
heart; a feeling ot drowsiness and a
distaste for food—that's Indigestion. Its
victims are numbered by the thousands, To them life is a burden. Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills have done more
towards relieving this suffering than
any other medicine. Often they have
cured after all other help had failed,
as In the case of Mr. Willis Herman,
of St. Catharines, Ont., who says: "1
had been afflicted with indigestion and
stomach trouble for years. At times
my suffering was almost Indescribable.
Sometimes for whole days I was unable to touch food. I.dieted and at
different times was treated by six doctors but they did not help me; I only
grew worse. For a time I was living
ln New York and while there consulted
a specialist but he wast unable to give
me any relief. I then decided to try
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and In less
than a month 1 felt some relief. I continued their use for a couple of months
longer and gained ln weight; my appetite improved; the pains left me and I
now feel better than I have at any
time during the past twenty-flve years.
1 will always gladly recommend Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills to other sufferers
believing that they will surely do for
others what they have done lor me."
When you use Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills as a blood builder ard nerve tonic
you are not experimenting—they have
been tried and proved successful In
thousands of cases. It Is their »"iv.r
to actually make new, rich, red blood
that enables them to cure such troubles
as anaemia. Indlgestloij, rheumatism,
kidney trouble, St. Vitus dance, partial paralysis and those special ailments of girlhood and woieanhood that
cause so much misery. For sale bv alt

Col. J. E. Capper, commander of the

the use of the aeroplane on the battlefield.
"In the near future me may expect
to see both dirigible balloons and
motor-driven aeroplanes used as aerial
scouts. The former stiffen at present

"Having been troubled for several
years with catarrh of the head, I decided to give Teruna a fair trial, and
I can truly say I have receiveu great

"I have also found Peruna a very

"1 have no hesitancy whatever ln

There are several kinds of Indigestion.

Miles    of    Ice    Clad    Highways    In
Northern Holland.
Friesland, the northern province
of Holland, is especially described as
the true paradise of the skater. Its
canals, threading the country in
every direction, are in the winter
months converted into miles upon
miles of ice-clad highways, stretching out in almost every direction as
tar as the eye cap see. The milkman,
the butcher, in fact, all of the tradespeople having occasion to travel
through the country, use these ice-
clad canals in going from village to
Expert Skaters.
It is only natural that where there
are such tempting stretches of ice the
natives should be expert skaters, and
this is true of the Frisians. The ordinary skater in this country, though
he may have his own special footgear
for the enjoyment of the sport, always sees to it that the shoes used
are good, stout ones. Not so in Fries-
land. The expert skater there takes off
his shoes and skates in his stocking feet, tho only addition to his footgear being another pair of socks. The
big wooden sabots ordinarily worn
by the Frisian are usually carried
under one arm when he is enjoying
his skating.
So much do the Frisians think Of
1 their iceclad highways that the authorities in each city and village,
many clubs and individuals, unite in
their efforts to keep them in first-class
condition and freo from snow in the
winter months.
Use Sleds to Carry Kits.
One of the best mediums for the
transportation of the small kits one
taking a skating trip in Friesland
needs is the rudely but stoutly constructed Frisian sled, which can be
hired at a small outlay. The other expenses can be made equally small.
The food served at the little inns
along the canals is clean and wholesome and the prices for meals ore
Then to add to the pleasure of such
a trip, at important crossing point-
there are refreshment tents, where an
invigorating drink of hot spiced milk
may be had, or, if the travelers prefer,
there are many cozy little spots along
the line of canals where they may
pause and prepare their own luncheons on the ice—in short, it is difficult to conceive of a winter outing affording more healthful pleasure than
skating through Friesland.

Flax seed may be sown from the
wheat sowing season on until the
middle of June. All things considered,
May is the best month in whicli to
sow. A well-worked and fine seed bed
should be made by using disk and har-
row and sometimes roller also. Not
making a seed bed is one of the commonest mistakes of flax growers. The
seed is best sown usually with a press
drill and to the depth of 1 1-2 to 2 1-2
inches ordinarily, according to the nature of the land. About three pecks
of seed per acre are enough, a larger
quantity being sown on worn land than
ou land in good condition.

A Most Valuable Agent.
The glycerine employed In Dr. Pierce's
medicines greatly enhances the medicinal
properties which it extracts from native
medicinal roots and holds in solution
much better than alcohol would. It alto
possesses medicinal properties of Its own,
being a valuable demulcent, nutritive,
antiseptic and antlferment. It adds
groatl y to the efilcscy of the Black Cherry-
bark, Bloodroot, (iolden Seal root, Stone
root and Qnoan's root, contained In
'Golden Medical Discovery" In subduing
chronic, or lingering coughs, bronchial,
throat and lung affections, for all of which
theso agents are recommended by standard medical authorities.
In all cases wbere thero Is a wasting
away of flush, loss of appetite, with weak
stomach, as in the early itagoi of consumption, there can be no doubt that gly-
cerlne acts as a valuable nutritive, and
aids the Golden Seal root. Stone root, !
Queen's root and Black Chftrrybark In
promoting digestion and building up the |
flesh and strength, controlling tbe cough
and bringing about a healthy conditio*
of tho whole system. Of course, It must
not be expected to work mlrneles. It will
not cure consumption except In its earlier
stages. It will euro very severe, obstl-.
nnte. hang-on, chronic coughs, bronchial
and laryngeal troubles, and chronic sore
throat with hoarseness. In acute coughs
tt Is not so effective It Is In the lingering
hang-on coughs, or those of long standing,
even when accompanied by bleeding from
lungs, that it has performed its most
marvelous cures. i
Prof. Kinley Ellfnswood, M. D., of Ben- !
nett Med. College, Chicago, says of gly- I
" In dyspepsia lt serves an excellent purpose. 1
Holding a fixed qusntlty of tbe peroxide ot

manufactured products of the pretest time ln
Its action upon enfeebled, disordered storo- ,
acln, especially If there is ulceration or catarrhal irast-lts (catarrhal lnfl-.mmii.ioj- of

The children we loved in the past
are grown
To men and    women and gpne
And we sit in the dark and we sit
And we dwell on the pleasures of
yesterday; '
Of the winding path through the
orchard lot,
Of the old   wood   lot   and the
grapevine swing,
Of the dusty roads where the sun
shone hot,
Of the elms    where the orioles
, used to sing.
Of our    childhood    days and the
friends we know,
The girl  in ribbons and furbelow ;
Of the    woods  the    creeks went
twisting through,
Of the little lass with the ribboned hair,
With  the    sweetly  curving  lips
and red;
And we sit out here in our big arm
But our hearts   arc back in the
days long dead.
And our minds drift from the girls
and boys
We chummed   with back in the
long agp;
Drift far, far, far to life's grownup time,
And the little children who used
to climb
In our arms to sleep, and who're
gone away.

tho first meeting of the

were the derisive yells that greeted this
astounding proposition.
The 8. G. T. C. had transferred Its
regular Friday sesslors nt arrangement
from the coach ln the Crownlngshleld
barn to the large, old-fashioned attic of
the Walnwrlght home.
Barton Walnwrlght, lot.g since recovered from the sprain which followed his
brave rescue of Rod's life at Mr. Stanton's chstnuttlng party ln October, was
now one of the most popular members
of the society that had once refused
him admittance. His hated title of
Sissy was never heard after that exciting afternoon.

"Chuck lt all, Rod, we're not going to
guess on those terms of yours, so you
might as well spit out your news, or
you'll burst with holding lt," laughed
Hen Newton, who knew Rod's Inability
to keep a secret, especially If lt meant
an outing for his beloved "Saturday
Good Time Club."
"Well, gentlemen, since you insist—
Bill Hempstead has a new bobsled—a
A chorus of jeers followed this announcement.
"Get on to the band wagon, Rod.
Your news was announced to this honorable body precisely fifteen minutes
ago. You would be a gay deceiver and
escort a lady home from school, when
you should have been presiding over
this Important conference, would you?"
said Tag Smith, giving Rod a friendly
punch that sent him rolling headlong
on the old cot.
Looking very much crestfallen, Rod
said: "Well, what are you going to do
about it?   Accept?"
"Accept what?" asked the bovs.
"Oh, come off!    You can't draw me

llant scarlet, with strong brakes and
steering gear. The mile-long course was
straightaway and perfect, and the three
bumpers supplied all the excitement necessary for the wild shrieks without
which coasting would be tame Indeed.
Bill steered splendidly, and there were
no accidents to mar the pleasure,
though several loads came to grief at
the second bumper, and Hen Newton,
coasting on a small sled, ran himself
head flrst Into a snow-bank and had to
be pulled out by the heels.
Any one but old Dinah would have
been appalled by the appetites brought
to supper, but, as she said to relieve
Mrs. Hempstead's fears of too few

Even a contest for the champion waffle eater, ln which Rod, the winner, acknowledged himself stalled at twenty-
four, did not exhaust that batter.
The evening coasting was jollier than
ever; and the boys and girls would actually have traveled that hill all night
had not Mrs. Hempstead reminded them
Sunday was not far off.
Barton voiced the sentiment of the
whole party when he told his hostess In

make a move that we put off our skating contest till next Saturday?"
"Honest Injun, Rod, we don't know
what you're driving at," said Barton.
Much delighted tnat all his newB had
not fallen flat, Rodney announced:
"The bob ls to be Initiated to-morrow, and Mrs. Hempstead has asked

"Susy goin'?" slyly asked Jack Peter,,.
"Yes, she Is; and so ls Marian, so I
suppose you'll refuse," replied Rod, with
a grin at Jack, whose devotion to pretty Marian Tempest was a standing joke.
Just then there was a knock at the
door, and the maid brought ln a huge
plate of doughnuts and a box of fudge.
"Before we fall to," said Rod, "I appoint Bart a committee of one to write
Mrs. Hempstead that the S. G. T. C.
accepts  with  pleasure."

'    *   HOME DINNER
'By Mary E. Carter
Copyright, 1905, by A. S. Barnes & Co.
HERB are two ways of serving
roasts—one    where    carving    ls
done   on   the   dinger   table,   the
other where   it  Is  done  at  the
side table by the waitress.
If carving ls done on the dinner table,
the maid should utand at the carver's
left and take away each plate as he
lays a piece of meat upon it. Ih the
proper order of helping she sets the first
down before the host's right-hand
guest, and then continues on around the
table from that point.
While the diners are discussing the
roast and vegetables the maid stands
quietly, but watchfully, near the hostess, observing quickly when any one
seems ready for a second helping, and
promptly removes plates of those who
luy down the knife and fork.
Salad being the last course In our little menu before dessert, when all the
plates have been removed she clears
the table of everything belonging to
that part of the dinner already served,
but leaves all decorations, bonbons and
other llttle dainties.
Of course, all glasses remain until the
dinner is over. At this time the large
napkin at the carver's place and the one
under the soup tureen ure taken away
so carefully as not to drop a single
crumb. This is done by flrst putting
each of the four corners toward the
centre of the napkin nnd then deftly
gathering lt up, while keeping the corners in the napkin's centre, and allowing no purt to fall open.
When the table is free from all signs
of the dinner nnd ln perfect order lt Is
ready for the dessert, whatever It mny
be. In bringing the plates, already arranged for this part of the dinner on
the side table, she should be careful to
set each one down with the knife side
of the plnte at the right of each person;
by so doing everything else will be In
Its proper place; the fork at the left,
the spoon ncross the front of the plnte.
Each person—when the plates are before nil—quietly sets the finger bowl on
the table In front of the plate nnd tho
dolly, at tho snme time between the
bowl and the tnblecloth, taking up na
llttle room as possible with Individual
convenience nnd rever Intruding upon
the neighbor's space nt right or left.
The dessert ls then passed In the same
way as nil that has nlready been
served. When there is pudding or a pie
they should be cut, before passing, and
a spoon or a pie knife should be under
a piece ready each time It Is handed.
Fruit Is last before the blnck coffee,
which ls served In very smnll cups
about two-thirds full. Sugur and cream
are passed for people to help them-
Belves. After-dinner coffee ls usually
served without cream, as most peoplo
like It sweetened only, but, as It is always possible for some one to prefer e.
little cream too, a considerate hostess
will see that lt ic offered.
The manner of folding anything for
people to help themselves is one mark
of a good waitress. Without awkwardness she should hold everything low
enough for people to help themselves
without reaching, near enough to avoid
spilling and perfectly steady while waiting for them, to take whatever they de-
FROM a pile of letters received ln
answer to the complaint  of the
unsuccessful    butter    maker,    I
draw one for today's use.    It Is
pertinent and practical: I
To the woman who complainB that her
butter tastes "Hat," I would aay I suspect
that she washes tho butter too much, or possibly she does not put ln enough salt. I get
extra prlceB for my butter, and I think I
may give a few pointers on the subject.
You i.nmver truly that age gives cream
and butter a bad flavor. Then the cow'b
food is an Important matter. A weedy
pasture affects the taste of the milk. Pure
drinking water ts another desideratum. The
milk must be kept ln a cool, odorless place.
When it "loppers"—or, as I was taught to
call lt in my childhood, "clabbers"—skim
off the cream before lt sours. If sweet, un-
loppered cream be added, put them well together and let them stand until the sweet
cream has thickened, lf you have enough
cream for a daily churning, the butter will
be of a finer quality than If the cream be
kept for some days. Let everything be
scrupulously clean. Then be cure that the
cream does not get too warm. If you have
no cellar, set the Jar of cream ln fresh
water, changing thiB often enough to reduce
the temperature to as low a point as may
be without peril to the butter-making properties. Cream for churning should never be
warmer than 60 degree-.
While churning never pour in either hot or
cold water. "Warm or chill the cream from
the outside of the churn. When the butter
begins to "come" continue to churn gently
until the flakes gather into a mass. If all
ls right, it will leave the handle almost clean
and collect to itself all floating particles.
I use a wooden paddle and a wooden bowl
to handle and hold the butter. I scald, then
rub them with Bait, and fill the bowl with
cold water white I am churning. In taking
up the butter, press lt against the side of
the churn to squeeze out the milk. Empty
the chilled bowl of water and put the butter Into lt, draining off all the milk. Then
work the butter into a thin Bheet against the
sides of the bowl so as to get rid of every
drop of buttermilk. Sprinkle the thin, Arm
sheet—compact and close-grained—with fins
salt, allowing an ounce to each pound of butter. Work the butter with the paddle down
Into the bottom of the bowl, doubling and
folding lt upon Itself. If this i art of the worn
be properly done, you can get out every
drop of buttermilk without overworking it.
Too much kneading spollB the flavor ana
makes the butter waxy. If rightly handled
and carefully salted, the butter will be of
uniform color. Streaked butter means uneven kneading and unskilful salting.
Form  the   butter  into   compact   rolls,   or
pack In jars, aB you like.   1—elude the air
and  you  will   have   firm,   sweet  butter,   'f
these directions have been observed.
AN   OLD   HOUSEKEEtEit   (Bloomlngton,
111.). i
Hints on Sweeping   .
Do housekeepers who have much sweeping to do know that by using a soft cloth
and plenty of clean water (with or without
ammonia ln lt), their .—rk would be materially lessened?
Wring out the cloth ln the water and wipe
tbe carpet, a breadth at a time, rinsing the
cloth often to get out the dirt, Instead of
spreading lt on the carpet.
Then, with brush and dustpan, or broom, -
brush up what litter may be left. •
The carpet will be cleaner, the work will
be lighter and the wnoie process is far
more sanitary than the old way, for there
will bo no dust to Ily Into the nose and
throat. ,
Try It and see how much more quickly
you con get the work done and how much
better the carpet will look.
In explanation of this letter, let me say
that I have received so much pleasure, as
well as profit, from your interesting Corner
that I am moved to offer a small contribution to It. M. A. H.  tWarren, IR. 1.)
Make the small contribution larger
next time.
Your method of carpet cleaning ls
admirable for the young or the slim.
For the elderly and the stout, lt would,
I fear, be more laborious than the old
way. When one takes on flesh with
years, the blood has an uncomfortable
habit of mounting to the head when
one stoops or bends over. May I offer,
as an amendment lo your motion, that
in such circumstances the cloth may be
fastened to a broom handle and used
from a standing position? My hardwood Hours are swept with a broom,
enveloped In a stout red flannel bag.
Could not some such device be resorted
to by our elderly or our overplump
Perhaps some of our readers knew ln
her youth Miss Sedgewick's excellent
domestic story, "Live and Let Live."
One of "Lucy's" employers lnsisttid
upon having her carpets swept with a
hand _nish—what we now call "a whisk
broom." Lucy spent an hour da!iy upon
her knees at thiB work.
"It raises no dust," said the mistress,
"nnd gets all the comers clean. It
doesn't wear out the carpet as a broom
does.   And nothing Is the worse for lt."
"Except my clothes, ma'am," ventured Lucy, showing a hole in the front
of her well-saved frock.
Scrubbing has its disadvantages. A
sensible correspondent suggests lhat a
low, padded stool be used to save the
clothes and the knees of scrubwomen.
It ls moved at need, as the worker de-
Blres. Will some one carry the idea Into
■•xecut'on and tell us bow it works?

When the corn Is thoroughly done, prepare as you would hominy, using a little,

me back to my childhood home among the?
Alleghany Mountains, where ham and ham*
Iny, buckwheat cakes und maple syrup,
formed part of the blll-of-fare In every-
farmhouse. Other memories are aroused—
the "apple parings," where all the neighbors pored ind quartered appleB until midnight, when they wound up with a supper
of wonderful dimensions, und then danced,
until morning.
It was a simple, homely life in many respects, but the people seemed to get more

llves away for. B. W. O. (Chicago).
Your letter is charming throughout,
and I strike hands with you ln the tenner memories of "a day that ls dead."
We love to live over the early life, enjoyed as one always enjoys what is new
and fresh. There Ib a subtle, dewy-
fragrance about the reminiscence— ol
childhood like the breath of wild flows,
But—I do not agree with you that th*
former days were Better than these.
The world Is better and wiser than It-
was fifty years ago. And—here we differ again!—people live and work longer
than they lived and labored then. The
average of human life has gained five
years in the last half century. W_
work strenuously, but we comprehend.
and obey tbe laws of health as our
forefathers and mothers never dreamed of doing. The saying that "ther_
are no old people nowadays" has a.
stout substratum of truth.
"The happiest time is NOW!" Lay
this beautiful truth to heart, audr thst
world will wear a different face.
No words from the poet's heart and

tler's brave "Life Psalm":

Removing Stains
WHEN a stain proves unusually
obstinate and absolutely refuses*
to come out by ordinary methods, wet the spot thoroughly and then
cover with dry chloride of lime. Let it
remain a few moments, rubbing well)
with the finger meanwhile, and then
rinse until all the lime is out. It will
generally be found that the stain 4_
gone also. If not, apply again. A second application will remove anythU"-^
that  is removable.
Owing to the nature of the remedy
however, it Is far better to make a
tecond application than to leuve the first
one oi until the stain Ib all gone. Th*
chemical nction of the lime removes _t
portion of the Internal fibre of the
muterlnl und thus eats up the stained
part. The proportion of fibre thus removed ls so small as to do no injury,
but, If left on too long, the lime will
Inslnuutc itself, diking a strong hold.

friend, a sweater. It is a tedious
task, undoubtedly, but the results are
most gratifying. A hand-made sweater,
besides being much better looking, will
stay in shape and generally outwear
two or three machine-made nffnlrs.
Strange to say, though, the crocheted
sweater is much more quickly finished
than a knitted one; tho latter is much
more popular even for the comparative
novice ln knitting.
After all, the thing to do Is to select
a rather plain, uncomplicated styl_» then
get explicit printed directions and follow them exactly.
True, you will be somewhat of a bore
Jo your friends, as your sole conversation for weeks to come will be a
monotonous murmur of "knit one, pur'
jwa   aiO so on.   By the wuy, why wlh
women carry their knitting with then*
into company, where they are expected
to be agreeable? It is an nccompllshe_
person who can both knit well and tall-
well ut the same time, despite ull one
hears to the contrary.
Styles In sweaters vary from season
to season as much as any other
woman's garment, so tne knitter ha»
mure or less latitude in her choice. ____
pretty new style that would be cuto-
puratively easy, even for a beginner. W.
a sweater In plain knitting. The matri
part of the sweater is ln a soft, light
wool, with a yoke, belt, cuffs nnd collar-
of light blue. The yoke is siiuiirc, or-
rather a Dutch neck shape, and the
Btlteh runs horizontally, while that In
the body of the sweuter Is vertical. An
open beading between the yoke and collar nnd ut the waist line has an Inch-
wide blue ribbon run through It, which*
fastens ln pretty bows in front. THE ADVOCATE, VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Mr. John Williams of the Vancouver Breweries, Ltd., Is recovering
as rapidly as could be expected from
the Injuries he received on Saturday
last while out driving in the Park.
Mr. and Mrs. Williams, had turned to
the left from Coal Harbor on to the
road which skirts the water in the
direction of English Bay, wheu the
spirited animal took fright at a
dog whicli emerged from the underbrush. Mr. Williams held to the
reins for dear life and might have
brought the horse up had it not
suddenly swerved. It was so unexpected that both the occupants were
thrown to the hard ground. A passer-by telephoned for the ambulance. Mr. Williams was taken to
St. Paul's Hospital, whero his injuries were attended to. Mrs. Williams, while.not seriously injured,
was severely shaken up.
The new pastor of the Mt. Pleasant Methodist Church, Hev. J. P.
Westman, has won popular favor
from the start and promises to be
one of—if not "the'*—leading
preachers of the city. Mr. Westman
possesses a genial and magnetic personality, and his manner in the pulpit is natural and his preaching
rings sincere and earnest,
A reception was tendered the
Rev. J. P. Westman on Tuesday evening in the Sunday School room,
the place being tilled to the limit liy
the congregation nnd visitors from
other churches. Mr. Thos. Cunningham occupied the chair aud the programme comprised addresses of welcome by Rev. H. VV. Piercy of Mt,
Pleasant Baptist Church, Rev. James
Lundy, supplying Mt. Pleasant Presbyterian Church; Rev. Dr. Robson,
Rev. Chas. Ladnor, Rev. Jas. Hicks,
Rev. J. J. Nixon, Rov. A. M. San-
ford. The addresses were all very
interesting and filled with the spirit
of good-fellowship. After the various ministers spoke Mr. H. If. Stevens read an uddress of welcome on
behalf of the congregation. Rev. Mr.
Westman made a short address appreciative of the hearty welcome he
had rocoived, and said he would
promise to do his best as pastor; he
could promise nothing more than
the best efforts of which he was
capable; he expected to get down to
actual work' next week and was using
this week in getting ready for his
pastoral duties. A vocal solo by
Mrs. Hicks of the Presbyterian congregation, an instrumental duet
(violin and organ), by the Misses
Wells of the St. Michael's congregation, and a recitation by Mr. A. G.
Taylor, were highly appreciated by
the audience and heartily applauded. The Ladies' Aid served choicest
refreshments at the close of the programme. The auditorium of the
new church was lighted and many
took the opportunity of seeing the
handsome Interior, line pews and
beautiful lights.
