I,nl llie good-will and cheer received and
given can stay with us longer thnn the passing day. Already Chr .sttnas is regarded as
a 'season' and not merely a dny. Fur weeks
he fur e Christmas Day downs we httgin to
enjoy the thought of its advent, and for sonic
time after the new year hns been proclaimed
the memories of ChtistmasnCi like pleasant
Chri I mas is an annual visitor wilh a warm
heart though his head he crowned with a
garland of snow and " some say that ever
'gain-it thnt sea-on comes, wherein our Saviour's birth was celebrated, the bird of drfwn-
ing singcth all night loner, and then they sny
no ghost dare stir abroad, no fairy takes, tlo
witch hath power to ch'aimjso hallowed and
so gracious h the time." True it is thnt the
angel fioijg of peace and good-will has never
been perfectly learnt by men, yet the anniversary of that time brings with it nn atmosphere conducive lo gor.d feeling; and any
festival which iiul .ices men lo give the word
of* cheer instead of the morose look, to give
a smile instead of au expression of hate, has
performed for men a worthy service.
In olden time our father's celebrated the
advent of Christmas by rude ceremonial
and hearty feast. Bacchus and the god ol
the stomach reigned supreme. We still hold
to the mirth and joviality of former days, yet
to our credit ne it said, we are somewhat
more moderate in our demands for lhe bowl
and thc feast. The mind, beside which there
is nothing great in man, is beginning 'lo rule

Bit thut evening, at supper table,
Henry had eaten but one mouthful Ol
Oread when .trains of wild, mysterious!
music were suddenly viaped Iron: under
the table. The family Irumedtatel)
iliauo an elTurt to discover whence the
-i.ui.ih eame, ulthomjh   II nry Chubb
-at there filled with agony and remorse
ami breml and tunes, und desperately
asserted his belief that the music came
from the cellar, where lhe servant girl
was concealed with a harp. He well
knew (hat Mary Ann waa unfamiliar
with the harp. Uut he was frantic
with anxiety to hide his guilt. Thus it
is that one crime leads lo another.
Uut he could not disguise the fact
forever, and that Very night while the
family were »t prayers, Henry all at
once begun to hiccough, and the music
box started nlf without warning wilh
" Way Down Upon the Swanee River"
with variations. Whereupon the pat-
ernul Chubb rose from his knees, and
.rasped Henry kindly but firmly by his
hair and shook him up and inquired
whal he meant by such conduct. And
Henry asserted that he was practising
something for a Sunday school celebration, which old Chubb intimated was
u singular explanation. Then they
tried to get up that musical box, and
every time they would seize Henry by
the lens and shake him off the sofa cushion, or would pour some fresh variety
nf emetic down his throat, the instrument would give a fresh spurt, and joyously gtind out "Listen to the mocking
bird" or "Thou'lt never cease to love"
At last they were compelled to let
that musical box remain within tho
sepulchral recesses of young Chubb.
To say that the unfortunate victim waa
made miserable by his condition would
he lo express in the feeblest manner
the chaotic condition of his mind. The
more music there waB in his stomach
the wilder became the discord in his
soul. As likely aB not it would occur
lhat while he lay asleep in tbe middle
of lhe ni-ht the works would begin in
the mid.Ile of the night and would play
"Home, Sweet Home," for twoor threw
hours, unless the pen happened to slip,
when ihe cylinder would slip back again
to " Wny Down Upon the Swanee Kiver'
and would rattle out that tune with variations and fragments of the sc-les until Henry's brother would kick him ~ut
of hed in wild despair, and sit on him
in a vain effort (o subdue the seranade,
which however invariably proceeded
with fresh vigor, when subjected to unusual pressure.
And when Henry Chubb went to
church It frequently occuired that, in
the very miilEtof the most solemn portion of the sermon,he would feel a gentle disturbance under the lower portion
of his jacket; and presently when every-
ihing was hushed, the undigested engine would give a preliminary buzz and
then reel oil "Listen to tbe Mockine
Bird" and "Thou'lt never cease to love'
atid the scales and exercises, unlil the
clergyman would stop und glare at
Henry over ins spectacles and whisper
to one of the deacons. Then the sexton
would tack up the aisle and clutch the
unhappy Mr. Chubb by the collar and
i-ciiil down the aisle again to the accompaniment of "Home, Sweet Home,"
uud then incarcerate Henry ill the upper portion of the Bteeple until afler
. hutch.
But the end came at last and the
miserable buy fom d pence. One day
While he was sitting ill school learning
his multiplication table to the tune
" Thou'lt never cease to love," his gastric juice triumphed. Something in ihe
music box gave way all at once, the
spring) weie unrolhd wilh alaroiing
force, and Henry Chubb, as he felt the
fragments hurled ri«ht imh left among
his vitals, tumbled over on the floor and
At the post-mortem examination they
found several pieces of " Home, sweet
Home" in bis liver, while one of hie
uii.s was severely lorn by a fragment
of "Way down upon Ibe Swanne River.'
Several panicles of 'Listen to Ihe Mocking Bird" were removed fiom his heart
and breast bon-, end three paass pegs
ef " Thou:lt never cease to Live" were
found lirmly driven into his fifth rib.
They had no music, at the funeral.
They siited the machinery out of him
and buried hint quietly in the cemetery.
Whenever tbe Chubbs buy musical
boxes now, tbey get thfui as l.-.rge as
a pinna and nail them to the wall.
Dr. Talmage on a Much Talked
Of Subject
WakiDg Thought. Have Their Echo in
Sleeping; Thoughts — God Frequently
Appears in Dreams to Warn, Convert
and Save Men—A Few lostances lie-
Entered ncr-ordintrto Ant of Parlinmentof Canada, In the year 1901, by William B .ily, of To-
n.ii io, ut Lhe Dcp'u of A„ricult ur..-, O.tawa,
Washington, Dec. 1.—In this discourse Dr. Talmage discusses a
much talked of subject and one in
which all arc Interested. The text
is .Joel ii, US: "I will put uut my
spirit upon all flesh. Your old men
shall dream dreams, your young men
shall see visions."
In this photograph of the millennium tlie dream is lifted into great
conspicuity, Vou may say of a
dream that it is nocturnal fantasia,
or that it is the absurb combination
of waking thoughts, and with a slur
of intonation you may say: "It is
only a dream"; but Cod has honored the dream by making it the
avenue through which again and
again he has marched upon the human soul, decided the fate of nations, and changed the course of
the world's history. God appeared
in a dream to Abimelech, warning
him against an unlawful marriage ;
in a dream to Jacob, announcing, by
the ladder set against the sky full
of angels, the communication between earth and heaven; in a dream
to Joseph, foretelling his coming
power under the figure of all the
sheaves of the harvest bowing down
to his sheaf; to the chief butler,
foretelling his disimprisonment; to
the chief baker, announcing his decapitation: to Pharaoh, showing him
first the seven plenty years and then
?he seven famine struck years,
under the figure of the seven lean cows devouring the
seven fat cows; to Solomon,
giving him the choice between wisdom and riches and honor; to a warrior, under the figure
of a barley cake smiting down a
tent, encouraging Gideon in his battle against the "Midhinitcs; to Nebuchadnezzar, under the figure of a
broken image and a hewn down tree,
foretelling the overthrow of his
power; to Joseph, of the New Testament, announcing the birth of Christ
in his own household, and again
bidding him fly from Herodic persecutions; to Pilate's wife, warning
him not to become complicated with
the judicial overthrow of Christ.
We all admit that God in ancient
times and under Bible dispensation
addressed      thc people     through
dreams. The question now is, does
, God appear in our day and reveal
himself through dreams? This is
the question everybody asks, and
that question I will try to answer.
You ask me if I believe in dreams.
My answer is, I do, but all 1 have
to say will  be under five heads.
Remark the First.—The Scriptures
are so full of revelation from God
that if we get no communication
from Ilim in dreams we ought, nevertheless, to be satisfied.
With twenty guidebooks to tell you
how to get to New York or Pittsburg or London or Glasgow or ..Ian-
chest er do you want a night vision
to tell you how to make the journey? We have In this Scripture full
direction in regard to the journey
of this life and how to get to the
celestial city, and with this grand
guidebook, this magnificent directory, we ought to be satisfied. I
have more faith in a decision .to
which i come when I am wide awake
than  when   I  am  sound  asleep. I
have noticed that those who give a
great deal of their time to studying
dreams get  their brains  addled.
Sound sieep received great honor
when Adam slept so extraordinarily
that the surgical incision which gave
him Eva did not awake him, but
there is no such need for extraordinary slumber now, and he who
catches an Eve must needs be wide
awake! No need of such a dream
as Jacob had, with a ladder against
the sky, when ten thousand times
it has been demonstrated that earth
and heaven are in communication*
No such dream needed as that which
was given to Abimelech, warning
him against an unlawful marriage,
when we have thr* records of the
county clerk's office. No need of
such a dream as wns given to Pharaoh about the seven years of famine, foi* now the seasons march in
regular procession and steamer and
rail train carry breads tuffs to every
famine struck nation. Xo need of
a dream like that which encouraged
Gideon, for all through Christendom
it is announced and acknowledged
and demonstrated that righteousness
sooner or later will get the victory.
If there should come About a crisis
in your life upon which the Bible
does not seem to be sufficiently specific, go to God in prayer, and you
will got especial direction. I have
more faith ninety-nine times out of
a hundred In directions given you
with the Bible in your lap and your
thoughts uplifted in prayer to God
than in all the information you will
get  unconscious on  your pillow.
I. can very easily understand why
the Babylonians and the Egyptians
with no Bible, should put so much
stress on dreams, and the Chinese
in their holy book, Chow King,
should think their emperor gets his
directions through dreams from
God, and that Homer should think
that all dreams came from -love,
and that in ancient times dreams
Were classified into a science, but
why do you and 1 put so much stress
upon dreams when we have a supernal book of infinite wisdom on all
subjects? Why should we harry
ourselves with  dreams?      Why should
Bddystone nud Barnegat lighthouses
Question a summer firefly?
Remark tlio Second.—All dreoms
have an important meaning. They
prove that thc soul is comparative-
tu   in'tlen-piirfcnt  oi  the  body.
eyes are closed, the senses are dull,
the entire body goes into a lethargy
which in all languages is used as a
type cf death, and then the soul
spreads its wing and never sleeps.
It leaps the Atlantic ocean and
mingles in scenes 3,000 miles away.
It travels great reaches of time,
Hashes back eighty years, and the
octogenarian is a boy again in his
father's house. If the soul before
it has entirely broken its chain of
flesh can do all this, how far can it
leap, what circles can it cut when
it is fully liberated! Every dream,
whether agreeable or harassing, whether sunshiny or tempestuous, means
so much that, rising from your
couch, you ougl t to kneel down and
say: "Oh   God,  am   I   immortal ?
Whence? Whither? Two natures.
My soul caged now—what when the
door of the cage is opened? If my
soul c_,in fly so far in the few hours
iu which my body is asleep in the
night.how far can it lly when my
body sleeps the long sleep of the
grave? oh,   this power to  dream,
how startling, how overwhelming !
Immortal* immortal!
Licmark the Third.—The vast majority of dreams are merely the result of disturbed physical condition
and are not a supernatural message.
Job had carbuncles and he was
seated in the night. lie says.
"Thou scarest me with dreams
and terrifies!, me with visions." Solomon had an overwrought brain,
overwrought with public business,
and he suffered from erratic slumber,
and he writes in Ecclesiastes. "A
dream cometh through the multitude of business." Br. Gregory,
in experimenting with dreams,found
that a bottle of hot water put to
his feet while in slumber made him
think he was going up the hot sides
of Mount Etna. Another morbid
physician,        experimenting with
dreams, his feet uncovered through
sleep, thought he was riding in an
Alpine diligence. But a great many
dreams are merely narcotic disturbance. Anything that you see while
under the influence of chloral or
brandy or hasheesh or laudanum is
not a revelation from God.
Bo not mistake narcotic disturbance for divine revelation. But I
have to tell you that the majority
of tlie dreams are merely the penalty of outraged digestive organs,
ami you have no right to mistake
the nightmare for heavenly revelation. Late suppers are a warranty
deed for bad dreams. Highly spiced salads at 11 o'clock at night, instead of opening* the door heavenward, open the door infernal and
diabolical. You outrage natural
law, and you insult the God who
has made those laws. It takes from
three to five hours to digest food,
and you have no right to keep your
digestive organs in struggle when
thc rest of your body is in somnolence. Thc general rule is eat
nothing after 6 o'clock at night, retire at 10, sleep on your right side,
keep the window open five inches for
ventilation, and other worlds will
not disturb you much. By physical
maltreatment you take the ladder
that Jacob saw in his dream, and
you lower it to the nether world,
allowing the ascent of the demoniacal. Dreams are midnight dyspepsia.
An unregulated desire for something
to eat ruined the race in paradise,
and an unregulated desire for something to eat keeps it ruined. Thc
world during 6,000 years has tried
in vain lo digest that first apple.
riio world will uot bo evangalized
until we get. rid of a dyspeptic. Christianity. Healthy people do not
want the cadaverous and sleepy thing
l!:;it, some people call religion. They
want a religion that lives regularly
by day ami sleeps soundly by night.
!i t hrough t rouble or coming on of
old age or exhaustion of Christian
service you cannot sleep well, then
you may expect from God "songs in
the night," but there are no blessed
communications to thoso who willingly surrender indigestihies. Napoleon \s army at Leipsic, Dresden
abd Gorodino came near being destroyed through the disturbed gastric juices of its commander. That
is the way you have lost some of
your  battles.
Another remark I make is that our
dreams are apt to be merely the
echo of our daytime thoughts. I will
give you a recipe for pleasant
dreams. Pill yonr days with elevated thought and unselfish action
aud your dreams will be set to music. If all day you are gouging and
gasping ami avaricious, in your
dreams you will sec gold that you
cannol Clutch and bargains in which
you were out-Shylocked. if during
the day you are irascible and pugnacious and gunpowdery of disposition, you will at night hnve battle
with enemies in which they will get
tho best of you. Jf you are nil
day long in a hurry, ut night you
will dream of rail trains tbat you
want to catch while you cannot
move ono Inch toward tlio depot.
if you are always oversuspicious ami
expcctanl of assault, you will have
at. night hallucinations of assassins
wiih daggers drawn. No one wonders that Richard 111., the ini.unions, the night before the battle of
Bosworth Field dreamed that all
those whom he had murdered stared
at him and that he was torn to
pieces by demons from the pit.
Tho scholar's dream is a philosophic
echo. The poet's dream is a rhythmic echo. Coleridge composed his
" Kubla       Khan"      asleep       in a
narcotic dream and. waking up,
wrote down 300 lines of it.
Tarttnin, the violin player, composed
his most wonderful sonata while
asleep in a dream so vivid that, waking, he easily transferred it to paper.
Waking thoughts have their echo
iu sleeping thoughts. If a man
spend his life in trying lo make others happy and is heavenly minded,
around his pillow he will sec cripples who have got over their crutch,
and processions of celestial imperials, and b'ar the grand inarch roll
down from drums of heaven over jasper parapets. You are vcrj apt to
hear in dreams what you hear when
you are wide aWako.
The  Hev.   Pr.   Bushnell   in   his  marvelous book entitled   "Nature and tbe
I Supernatural"    gives    tin*  following
i fact thnt he got from Captain Vomit
in California, a fact confirmed by
many families: Captain Yount dreamed twice one night that 150 miles
away there was a company of travelers fast in the snow, lie also saw
in the dream rocks of peculiar formation and, telling this dream to an
old hunter, the hunter said: "Why,
1 remember those rocks. Those rocks
are in the Carson Valley Pass, 150
miles away." Captain Yount, impelled by this dream, although laughed at by his neighbors, gathered men
together, took mules and blankets
and started out on the expedition,
traveled 150 miles, saw those very
rocks which ho had described in his
dream and found the suffering ones
at the foot of those rocks, brought
them back to confirm the story of
Captain Yount. Who conducted that
dream? The God of thc snow, the
God of the Sierra Novndas.
God has often appeared in resource
and comfort. You have known people—perhaps it is something I state
in your experience—you have seen
people go to sleep with bereavements
inconsolable, and they awakenfld in
perfect resignation because of what
they had seen in slumber. Br. Cranage, one of tho most remarkable men
I ever met — remarkable for benevolence and great philanthropies — at
Wellington, England, showed me a
house where the Lord had appeared
in a wonderful dream to a poor woman. The woman was rheumatic,
sick, poor to thc last point of destitution. She was waited on and cared for by another poor woman, ber
only attendant. Word came to her
one day that this poor woman had
died, and the invalid of whom I am
speaking lay helpless upon the couch,
wondering what would become of her.
In that mood she fell asleep. In her
dreams she said the angel of the Lord
appeared and took her into the open
air and pointed in one direction, and
there were mountains of bread, and
pointed in another direction, and
there were mountains of butter, and
pointed in another direction, and
there were mountains of all kinds of
worldly supply. The angel of the
Lord said to her: "Woman, all these
mountains belong to your Father, '
and do you think ho will let you, j
his child, hunger and die?" Br. Cranage told me by some divine impulse ho went into
that destitute home, saw the!
suffering there, and administered
unto it, caring for her all tho Way
through. Do you tell mo that that
dream was woven out of earthly anodynes? Was that tho phantasmagoria of a diseased brain? No; it was
an all sympathetic God addressing a
poor woman through a dream.
Furthermore, 1 have to say that
there are people who were converted
to God through a dream. The Bev.
John Newton, the fame of whose
piety fills all Christendom, while a
profligate sailor on shipboard, in his
dream thought that a being approached him and gave him a very
beautiful ring and put it upon his
linger and said to him: "As long as
you wear that ring you will be prospered. If you lose that ring, you
will be ruined." In the same dream
another personage appeared and by
a strange infatuation persuaded John
Newton to throw overboard that
ring, and it sank into the sea. Then
thc mountains in sight were full of
fire, and the air was lurid with consuming wrath. While .John Newton
was repenting of his folly in having
thrown overboard thc treasure another personage came through the
dream and told John Newton he
would plunge into the sea and bring
that ring up if he desired  it. Ho
plunged into the sea and brought it
up and said to John Newton. "Here
is that gem, but I think I will keep
it for you lest you lose it again."
And John Newton consented, and all
tho Arc went out from thc mountains
and all the signs of lurid wrath disappeared from thc air, and John
Newton said that ho saw in his
dream that that valuable gem was
his soul and that the being who persuaded him to throw it overboard
was Satan nnd that the one who
plunged in and restored that gem,
keeping it for him, was Christ. And
that dream makes one of tbe most
wonderful chapters in the life of that
most wonderful man.
Hev. Herbert Mendos was converted
to God through a dream of the last
judgment, and many of us have had
some dream of that great day of
judgment, which shall be tho winding
up of the world's history. If you
have not dreamed of it, perhaps tonight you may dream of that day.
There aro enough materials to make

The Secret by "Which a Yankee Mechanic Out of Work Made an Easy
l.i\ inX — IIU Imposing Array of
Tool* and the Enchanted Can.
A man employed ns a fitter of parts or
finisher of clock movements in a Connecticut clock factory received notice some
years ago that the entire plant would, on
n stated day, close its doors for an Indefinite period, owing to the business depression then prevailing throughout the country. On the appointed day ho and the
other hands left their benches. For the
first week or so idleness seemed to him
like a needed vacation, hut ns the days
rolled hy without nny prospect of a resumption of work he had tn consider bow
he was going to earn his living.
Plowing or driving n truck team was
out nf the question with hiin, and he final-*
ly decided to fit up a wagon and drive
about the country tinkering clocks. Accordingly n light rig was secured nud
fitted out with queer looking hammers,
duck billed pinchers and what not. Then
to give an imposing nir to the outfit he
added a miscellaneous assortment of extra parts of clocks, such as dials, pointers,
verges, clock springs, etc. Most important of all was the ingenuity and good nature of a Yaukee which he supplied himself.
Driving leisurely along over the country roads he would pick, out a house,
alight, hitch his horse to a hospitable post
nnd saunter in, something ns u near relative would do.
"Got any sick clocks here, madam?"
be would ask.
This style of introduction generally
succeeded nnd disnbled timepieces were
brought to light.
"What's the matter with the clock,
anyway?" ho would sny as he examined
a clock. Then the whole story of its rise
and fall would follow.
"Been prying into the cogs with the
handle of a feather duster?"
"No, sir.    Nothing of the kind."
'Tins it ever to your certain knowledge
unloosed   itself   from   its   moorings   and
fallen to the floor?"
"No, indeed; nothing of the kind. It
simply petered out, thnt's all."
"Too bnd!" nnd a doubtful shake of the
head would indicate that the attending
physician considered the case quite serious. "Well," he would go on, "I hnve

His services being retained, he would
lay out on the dining room table in an
imposing manner the extra parts, the
queer looking hammers and the duel-
billed pinchers. He would also bring in,
but would not make conspicuous, nn en-
ehnntcd can containing n magic fluid.
Everything being ready, the hands and
face were removed first, then came the
pendulum. Examination of the interior
was usually followed by the same procedure.
Tho springs were wound to their fullest extent and the movement was taken
from its accustomed place and set Upon
the work table. Then, with n dexterous
movement of the clock tinker's fingers,
the small verge tbat held in check the
power of the spring by locking into the
teeth of tbe crown wheel at the apex of
tbe train was slipped from the small
wire that kept it in plnce nnd away went
the entire train spinning like mad. A
slight pressure of tbe fiiVefingor against
the swiftly revolving verge or crown
wheel would act us a coaster brake aud
the trniu would be brought to a standstill.
The cover to tbe enebnnted can was
quickly removed and the metal movement
wns nllowed to sink to tbo bottom of the
mngic fluid contained therein, thus giving
tbe tightly wound movement n chance to
splash in the fluid until it wns completely
When the wheels hnd ceased to spin,
the clock tinker would take the movement
out and rub it dry. The next step was to
lubricate it, which was done by placing
one-half of a hickory nut meat between
tbe jaws of tbe duck billed pinchers and
with a firm grip pressing out the oil,
which, through the agency of a broom
splint, wns conveyed to the bearing of every pinion lip. The verge was put back
on thu little wire and locked into the
crown wheel once more, the springs newly wound and the convalescing patient
was well on the road to recovery. Tbe
movement was set back in its own place,
the pendulum rod and ball carefully adjusted, the .ace and bauds restored and
again the recorder of minutes was on tbe
shelf, going tick-took, tick-tock.
"Now, Mr. Clockman, that sound-
homelike.    What's your bill?"
"Well, for chronic cases like this our
fee is usually $1." And he said afterward
the money came like finding it.
When business was at its best, be received word tbat the factory would soon
start up on full time and his services
Would be required to make more clocks
for future clock tinkers to doctor up.
In later years be explained tbe trick as
follows: It seems that six out of every
ten halky clocks are afllictod with the
same disorder, gummy, ditty pinions, and
instead of taking the whole movement
apart be Flipped the verge off and allowed
the movement to run down In a can of
common stove gnsoline. The fluid would
remove the old oil that had collected dust
and lint to an extent that stopped tbe
clock,    the    revolving    pinions    cleansed
themselves and when tbe movement was
taken from the liquid it was La running

In leresting    Process.
"The diamond, when mined," said an.
expert, "is very often of a shape so uneven that, in preference to cutting half
off and letting tbat part go to dust, ar
was formerly done, incisions are now,
made running with the grain of the diamond. The Incision is made with th*v
sharp edge of another ^diamond. The
■cleaving knife is then inserted nnd given
a sharp tap, and tbe stone will split as-
tho grain runs, aud thus two or more
smaller but better shaped diamonds are*
"After the diamond is cleft it is necessary to do the rough cutting technically
known as 'bruting.' This is done by
affixing two diamonds on the ends of
two boxwood sticks with a very bard
cement. One is then rubbed agaiust tho
other, and 'diamond cuts diamond.' Tbey
aro held over a cutting bux having two
iron pegs for levers aud containing finely
perforated brass paus, through which
tho dust falls, tbe chips remaining in tho
top pan.
"The stone, having been cut to tbe satisfaction of the master, is taken to tho-
polishing room, where a setter selects a
suitable sized brass cup, called a 'dope,'
fills it with a mixture of lead nud tin,
and melts it iu a gas flame. Having
worked the solder to its proper shape be
places the diamond in the center, leaving
only a very small part exposed. A mark is
made on the solder before It becomes
thoroughly set, "and then tbe stone is
passed on to the polisher. By the mark
made on the solder tbe latter knows at
once the precise run of the grain and tho
way in which it will polish to tho best
advantage on the mill.
"The lirst operation is the making of
the 'table' of the diamond. This done, it
is handed back to the setter that be may
take it out of tbe solder and *eset it for
the first corner, called the flat corner.
The solder is again marked to indicate
to the polisher tbe run of tbe grain of
this particular corner, and so the process
is continued until the diamond is polished
throughout. Every facet has a name,
and every name denotes the grain and
how to polish that particular facet. Tbo
polisher uses a circular disk composed of
soft, porous iron, so that as the diamond
is polished away in the form of dust it
enters tbe pores of tho iron, the result
being that we bave tbe diamond cutting
the diamond again.
"Without thc assistance of the diamond
dust the iron would not make the slightest
impression on tlie diamond. The polishing wheel or disk is propelled hy steam
power and makes 2,000 to 3,000 revolutions in a minute. Before tbe silently revolving disks you will see men so intent
upou tbeir work that they have ejus for
nothing else; for, notwithstanding the
perfection of the machinery, the skill of
the workmen remains of primal importance. It is with their fingers and thumbs
that they adjust the points, edges and
facets of tbe diamond with extreme accuracy, keeping tbem constantly moist
with diamond dust and olive oil. Tbe
thumbs of the workmen, being used continually and with much force, become
greatly enlarged.
"The beauty of a cut or finished stone
depends so much upon the form and position of tbe facets that a moderately fine
stone, well cut ami polished, is of far
greater value than a large one less artistically worked. It sometimes happens
thut the lapidary receives a stone of very
unfortunate shape. His duty will, therefore be to take all possible care to preserve its size and, hiding its faults, give
it such a form as shall send it forth with
the greatest weight consistent with beauty aud brilliancy."

Deep-Seated Kidney Disease often the Result of a Neglected Cold
—Then Come Great Sufferings from Lumbago and Backache.
Few people realize what a vast,proportion of serious illnesses arises from cold settling on some delicate
organ of the body. The kidneys and liver, ns well as the lungs, are very easily affected by sudden changes of
temperature, and the results are often suddenly fatal. It is a common experience with farmers, teamsters,
railroad men and laborers to have a cold settle on tho kidneys and throw these organs, as well as the wholo
digestive system out of order. There is usually backache, pains in the sides and limbs, deposits in the urine,
pain anil  scalding wilh urination and irregularity of the bowels.
So many thousands of cases of serious kidney disease have been cured by Pr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills
that they have come to be considered an absolute cure for all kidney derangements. They aro purely Vegetable in composition, prompt and pleasant in action, and thorough and far-reaching in their effects. They
are endorsed by doctors, lawyers, ministers and others, and are beyond doubt the most efficacious treatment
obtainable for diseases of the kidneys and liver. One pill a dose ; 25 cents a box ; at all dealers or 1M-

An   Invention   Whicli   It«.ir   Speak,, Not
Merely ltrpr-iluuc. >p.--ch.
A remarkable triumph in mechanical invention has just been achieved
by Pr. Murage, who has succeeded
in constructing a machine that can
utter plainly and distinctly the five
vowels—a, e, i, o, u.
Although many attempts have been
made at this, it is only now that
success hes been attained, and before long we may expect to have a
machine that can ;*'ally talk.
Of course, the phonograph is not a
talking machine, because it merely
gives off a record that has already
been made upon a cylinder by an
actual human voice. Pr. Murage's
machine, however, creates the vowel
sounds at first hand.
This machine has been constructed
so as to reproduce tlie interior of •
person's mouth while pronouncing
thc different vowels, using the plastic substance  employed   by   dentists.
These false mouths, as it were,
are made of plaster Paris, and are
litted by sirens giving the appropriate combinations of sounds. Pr.
Murage then sets his machine in operation and the vowels arc produced
Pr. Murage purposes to modify the
steam sirens used on shipboard so
that they wii! imitate tlie vowel
sounds. Thus    different    phonetic
syllables mny be obtained which
may be used to form an international alphabet.
Another important application of
this synthetic process can be made
in the construction of ear trumpets
that will not fntiguc the deaf, because they will not modify the
grouping of oscillation adapted to
the ear. Pr. Marage has also constructed the "acouomoter," giving
a typical sound of the vowel "a,"
for example, which may he used as a
standard to which certain other
Bounds may be referred.
Thus there are far greater possibilities for this self-talking machine
than appear from a first glance at
it. Now that it is possible to make
■exact mechanical reproductions of
the human mouth with pliable lips,
perfect teeth, and nil tho wonderful
inner mechanism, it would be possible to use these mechanical word
producers on a magnified scale on
steamships at night and in fogs,
and many disasters may thereby be
At present Dr. Marage is engaged
in perfecting his invention and
studying particularly those words
in the production of which the
cheeks play a more or less important
part, for in this direction ie feels

He Had Suffered for Forty Years
From Dyspepsia—Food Became
Detestable and Stomach Cramps
Made Life a Burden.
From The Topic,  Petrolea,  Ont.
Few men in Petrolea are better
known than Mr. Thomas Findlay,
who has resided here nearly forty
years. In 1862 Mr. Findlay came
here, and before the railroad connected with Petrolea he drove a stago
coach, bringing -the early oil men.
When the railroad came hero Mr.
Findlay engaged m the oil business,
but later ho suffered from a gun accident, that disabled his hands permanently. After recovering from his
Mr. Findlay was appointed constable
and night watchman for the town,
which oliice he has held during thirty
years past. This accident was by no
means Mr. Findluy's worst misfortune. From early youth he had been
a martyr to dyspepsia, which finally
became so bad that he looked forward to death as a merciful releu.se.
Happening to hear that Mr. Findlay
had found complete relief from his
lifelong foe, a Topic reporter waited
on him to find if this was true. Mr.
Findlay was only too glad to tell his
story, hoping its publication might
help some other sufferer. " I am a
pretty old man now/' said Mr.Findlay, " but I cannot remember the
time when I was not in pain from
pernicious dyspepsia and stomach
trouble until lately. As a young man
on the farm I suffered all'sorts of
pains with it; food would sour on my
stomach and violent vomiting spells
would follow. As 1 grew older my
sufferings increased. 1 could not eat
anything but thc simplest kind of
food, and little of that. My system
became badly run down and I grew
so weak that I really looked forward
to death as a release from my misery. One after another I tried doctors und medicines, but could get no
relief; then in despair I concluded to
quit all and await the end. Meantime my condition became worse.
Violent cramps attacked my legs,
prostrating me for a time. They became worse and more frequent until
they one day attacked my stomach,
and I thought my end had come.
Unable to move and in agony I was
driven home, as I thought to die,
but after an injection of morphine I
gradually recovered. From that time
on the cramps increasing in frequency
and violence. Nothing gave mo relief except the temporary immunity
from pain afforded by morphine. 1
became so weak from pure starvation
that death stared me in the face.
Finally a friend said: 'Why don't you
try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills?'
'What's the uso?' I said, ' I've tried
everything and just got worse all the
time.' 'Well," she snid, 'you try a
box of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, thoy
cured me, ami I believe they will do
you good.' Well, I purchased a box
'.•il started taking them. After a
liltle 1 thought they helped nie, so I
kept on taking them for a couple of
months when I felt I was really cured
after so many years of suffering. My
strength came back, my stomach recovered its power, and I was able to
eat anything I fancied, and once
more could enjoy life. This is nearly
two years ago, but I was cured to
stay cured. I have never had a sick
day since or known the slightest
stomach trouble. I am confident I
would be a -dead man now if it were
not for Dr. Williams' Pink Pills—
nothing else ever helped me."
The old adage ''experience is the
best teacher," might well be applied
in cases of dyspepsia, and if sufferers
would only be guided by the experience of those who have suffered but
are now well and happy through the
use of Dr. Williams' Pink rills,
there would be less distress throughout the land. Dr. Williams' Pink

Colonial Secretary IU. Hon. Joseph Chamberlain   Spend.    Hi.   Holiday**   Among
Them—Hi. lieautifnl Home Garden.
Mr. Chamberlain is one of the few
British legislators who spend the
Parliamentary recess at home.
"Home" in Mr. (Jhumberlnin's case
means Highbury, Birmingham, where
lies the garden that the Colonial
Secretary   loves.
Built, as it was, in 1880, under his
own directions, Highbury might almost be taken as showing Mr. Chamberlain's character. It lies but, two
miles from the • pulsating heart of
commercial Birmingham, and vet is
so surrounded by its own thickly-
wooded grounds that so soon as
you have entered its gates you feel
you are in the heart of the country.
The house itself might be taken as
tlie ideal suburban home. It was
birilt and has been furnished with
bttt two objects in view—comfort und
In thc gallery hang two pictures of
particular interest; one a portrait of
Mrs. Chamberlain by the late Sir
John Millais; the other a portrait of
the Colonial Secretary, by the famous American artist Sargent.
Tlie Highbury library is probably
oue of the best collections of foreign books to be found in any private house in Britain; but it is
rather on his garden than his books
that Mr. Chamberlain's interest centres when at home. The grounds are
ideal in this respect; that you can
wander from the exotic orchid houses
into almost uncultivated dells and
hollows. Miss Murrell Morris, in
her "Life of the Colonial Secretary," says:
"Though not caring for the manual
labor of gardening, such as potting
and pruning, which many enthusiasts
enjoy, he generally likes to superintendent the planting of shrubs, the
laying out of beds, the arrangement
of the houses. He knows much of
plants, his knowledge not being restricted to orchids. He has often
called the attention of the working
classes to the hobby of gardening as
one of the purest, healthiest and
least costly in which a man can indulge. An except must of course,
be made in the case of an orchid collector, whose hobby cannot be called
inexpensive. When Mr. Chamberlain
is in London, one of the very few
real recreations he permits himself
is to visit (often on a Saturday afternoon) the Botanical Gardens at
Kew, where the gardeners are sure
to show him any addition to or any
curiosity among their treasures."
When Mr. and Mrs. Chamberlain
are in London, a choice selection of
roses and other flowers are sent up
two or three times a week, and
every afternoon two buttonholes
consisting of orchids are dispatched
from Highbury, one for.the Colonial
Secretary, the other for Mr. Austin
When you lirst step into the orchid
houses, of which there aro fourteen.
you are intoxicated by bewildering
varieties of tints and colors. Here
is a blossom so rich and vivid in
color that only the hand of a master would dare attempt to picture il
on canvas! Dazzled, vou turn away
only to look into a "dying sunset"
growing nearby. Yet another rivets
your eye while your brain tells you
that here at last you have seen -lhe
gleam, the light that never was on
sea or land, the consecration and
the poet's dream." You wander on
along vista afler vista, of exotic verdure, the very ceiling clothed with
climbing plants. This is where the
Colonial Secretary loves to stop and
Bailer's Temporary Successor.
Major-General Hifdyard, C.B. (p.s.
c), who if! gazetted for appointment
ns Deputy Adjutant at the War Office, and who is now temporarily in
command at Aldershot, began his
career by serving five years in the
navy. Since entering the army he
has seen much service in the Egyptian campaign, being present at the
battles of Kassossin and Tel-el-Ke-
bir. For his services in the latter
he was mentioned in despatches, was
promoted to a Lieutenant-Colonelcy
and received from the Khedive the
order of thc fourth class of the Os-
rnanieh. Ho entered the army on
March 9,18(37, ns an ensign in the
Highland Light Infantry, and became
a. full Colonel nineteen years later.
In the meantime he filled the responsible posts of Deputy Assistant Adjutant-General at the War Oflice, and a
similar appointment at Aldershot.
He was promoted Major-General in
May, 1809, while in command of the
third infantry brigade, stationed at
Aldershot. Going to South Africa
as officer in command of the second
brigade of the first division of the
Army Corps in South Africa under
General Duller, he gained distinction,
especially at Estcourt, during the arduous advance to Ladysmith. He
comes of old stock, which goes as far
back as Dobbin of Roddisdale, who
fought for thc house of Lancaster in
the Wa-- of the Doses.

The    Most   Precious    Thing     in the

Care for Little Ones.
No price would be too great to
pay for the preservation of the perfect, rosy, sturdy health of a baby.
Xo price would be too great; but, as
a matter of fact, the price is very
small—simply precaution and the
exercise of good judgment.
ft, is not good judgment to give
the tender little infant remedies
containing opiates, and the so-called
"soothing" medicines, always c n -
tain opiates; they do not cure, they
only drug and stupefy the little ones.
Baby's Ow» Tablets are guaranteed
to contain no opiates and no harmful drugs. It is the best nedicine for
little ones, because it i* promptly effective and absolutely harmless. For
nervousness, sleeplessness, constipation, colic, stomach troubles, the irritation accompanying the cutting of
teeth, and other infantile troubles,
Uaby'B Own Tablets is beyond question the best medicine in the world.
Tin; Tablets are sweet and pleasant
to take, and dissolved in water can
be given with absolute safety to the
youngest infui... Mothers who have
used this medicine for their little
ones, speak of it in the most enthusiastic terms—that is the best proof
of its efficacy. Mrs. AlonzoFeltmate,
Whitehead, K.S., says : "In my opinion Baby's Own Tablets are unequalled for children. They take it
readily, and it regulates tlie bowels,
cures them of peevishness, and is a
great helper in teething. I would
not think of being without the Tabids. " Sold by druggists or sent
