more valuable because of their tinib i

all kinds of schemes batched for corralling the timber, but mainly without
avail. Now that the restrictions are
to be thrown off,excitement regarding
the issue is rapidly increasing. Numerous syndicates will have men on tli •
ground, with a view to staking limits
while private enterprise will not be

some of the syndicates has sprung up

With this issue The Drill ceases publication,
the reason therefor being simple and direct—lack of
sullicient business to maintain life. It is with sincere regret that the owner of the paper makes tho
announcement, but tliere is no other alternative, the
struggle for existence having become too strenuous
to withstand. When the paper was established it
announced that it would riseor fall with the destinies
of the place. At one time the outlook appeared
night and inspiriting, but in these latter days tho
pinch of depression is sorely felt in the district, and
many a good man lias beeu forced to seek his livelihood eUewhere.

Case of a Windsor Man \fiho Suffered
Years Before He Discovered the
Right Remedy.
Windsor, Ont., Feb. 13.—(Special).
—How quickly Rheumatism and
Dropsy can be cured when the right
medicine is used is shown ln the case
of Mr. Jno. McDonald, a retired farmer living at 130 Langlois Avenue here.
Mr. McDonald says:
"For two years I was troubled with
Rheumatism and Dropsy. My legs
were terribly swollen, and though I
tried many medicines nothing gave
me any relief until I tried Dodd's Kidney Pills. Two boxes of them cured
tne so completely that I have had no
return of the diseases in years."
ilheumatlsm and Dropsy are caused
by the poisons disordered Kidneys tall
to strain out of the blood. Cure the
Kidneys with Dodd's Kidney Pills.
and the cured Kidneys will remove
the cause of the Rheumatism or Dropsy. Witbout cause there can be no

ot the superiority of this Flour have

The ClaMsie Author's Many ftntrlbn-

During the middle ages Aristotle was
practically the only secular author
read in Europe, for the priestly class
were the only readers, and their learning was mostly confined to ecclesiastical treatises. It was during this period tbat the English language was
-developing into its present form.
Aristotle treated o-f every subject
which came within the range of
•thought ln bis time and Introduced
■many new branches of inquiry which
bave since become sciences. The terms
used by him were adopted by every
later writer and are still ln use ail
over Europe, although variously cor-

The  War  Native  Mexican*   Kat   th*
Honey Bearing Ant.
The honey bearing ant of southern
Mexico and Colorado works at night,
Btoring the honey ln curious fashion.
After a foraging expedition on the
plants of the Schrug oak the worker
ant on its return forces the honey by
muscular contraction from Its moutb
into the crop and abdomen of the
"honey bearer." This crop is walled
by ten muscular plates and Is capable
of great expansion. Wben filled tbe
abdomen becomes extraordinarily distended, the "bearer" resembling a sae
of amber colored honey, with the head
and thorax like small appendages on
cne side.
The "bonrers" being rendered almost
.helpless by this change of condition,
•re carefully attended by the otber
ants nnd kept ln suitable compartments, where, clinging to the roof,
tbey bang down like amber globes.
The ants as they need food apply tbelr
qiouths to those of the "honey bearers," whon a slight contraction of the
muscles forces out minute drops, which
are licked off and consumed. These
ants are used by the natives of Mexico
as dessert to their feasts, tbe honey
being extrncted by pressure between
the teeth.
The   Way   the   Ewe   Recognises   Its
Own   Offspring.
Although sheep can seo and hear
very well, it ls undoubtedly by the
sense of smell that the ewes recognize
thplr own offspring. Sir Ilerbert Maxwell relates an interesting example of
this oild fact, citing the case of a Cheviot lamb which hud fallen into a
river and, owing to the slecpuess of
the bnnk, could not climb out.
An angler, who was fishing ln the
stream, rescued the shivering animal,
and it Staggered away, bleating plt-
eotisly for Its dam. It found her without much dilllrully, but the mother,
sniffing disdainfully at the dripping little wretch, poshed It off, refusing to
recognize it. The niiglcr appealed to
a shepherd who happened to pass that
wuy for an explanation of the ewe's
behavior. "Oh," snld he, "the bit
Iii-iistlc s been ln the water, ye see, and
the auld ewe cumin smell it. She'll
tak it back as soon ns It's dry."
And so lt turned o.nt. The fleece was
goon dried, lhe natural otic* returning,
and tbe mother and child were (reconciled and reunited at once.
One Phase of Mexican Etlqnetta.
Mexican etiquette is peculiar, as Is
shown by the following quotation
from a letter written by a Spanish woman while traveling in that country:
"There is one piece of etiquette entirely Mexican, nor can I imagine whence
derived, by which it ls ordained that
nil new arrivals, whatever their rank,
foreign ministers not excepted, must,
In solemn print, give notice to every
family of any consideration ln the capital that they have arrived and put
themselves and their homes at the disposition of the residents, failing ln
which etiquette the newly arrived family will remain unnoticed and unknown."   	
The Steam Engine.
The steam engine was made perfectly automatic by a lazy boy who was
employed to open and close the valves.
Desiring to play instead of to work, he
tied a string from one part of the machine to another, thus making the engine itself attend to its own business.
He was never heard of again, and even
his name ls unknown, but a perfect engine was the outcome of his laziness.

Helping Along the Joke.
"These," said the epicure to the
bright Philadelphia girl, "are snails. I
suppose Philadelphia poople don't eat
them for fear of cannibalism."
"Oh, no," was the answer. "It Isn't
that.    We   couldn't   catch   them."
Golf Player's  Left   Shoulder.
The right shoulders of persistent
golfers' coats have to be padded, for
golf develops the left shoulder so abnormally tbat, without this padding,
tlie young men would look a little deformed.
In driving the player's right arm and
shoulder ouly guide the ball's course.
It is tbe left arm and shoulder that da
the work; hence the excessive left sldf
development, to counteract which lt ls
sometimes necessary to put in ths
right shoulder of the coat padding an
inch deep.
Tailors can always tell a golfer by
this peculiar development of his left
shoulder. Sometimes young women
play enough to get uneven shoulderi
too. The deformity, though, Is rare
among young women, whereas among
young men lt is common.—Louisville
London Residences.
London as a place of residence seems
as if it would soon resemble the city,
once a busy center of gayety and life,
now used only for business purposes
nnd as silent as the grave by night
Year by year It becomes more diilicult
to let town houses. The suburbs encroach on the city and stretch for weary monotonous miles, while Brighton,
Eastbourne, Windsor and other minor
towns find a mushroom population
growing up round them, people who in
old dnys would have lived in London.
And with all this rents do not go
down, and the ordinary householder
whose business forces him to remain
in London finds it even more difficult
to make both ends meet — London
Thirty Thousand Dry Goods Stores.
In the United States there are about
30,000 shops that sell dry goods.
Twelve thousand of these may be
ranked as good stores, nnd about 5,000
are establishments of a size wblcb
makes them important factors ln tht
commercial and domestic life of theii
communities. The owners of almost
all of these shops, the largest as well
as tlie smallest, began obscurely. Ths
majority of the most prosperous havs
attained their present success and
magnitude during recent years, Id
which unsuccessful merchants hav*
been wont to complain thnt the competition has been ruinous.—Success.

"I have known aged people, men past
eighty, tu take their cold baths every
morning and ho ns spry ns you please,"
suys Eugene Wood in Everybody's
M.ignzino. "One old fellow used to
toddle down to the beach when hs had

nt the last, though, for he died Just
about four weeks before he was eighty-
four. And If those of low vitality who

their vitality would be low. I think

How It Is Caused by Bad Blood, and
Why Cured by Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills.
Not many years ago doctors
thought rheumatism was only a local
pain caused by cold or wet in ageing
Joints and muscles. Now they know
that rheumatism ls caused by the
blood becoming tainted with uric
acid from disordered liver and kidneys. This acid eats into the vital
organs. It destroys their vitality,
contracts the muscles, stiffens the
joints and irritates the nerves. Then
cold and wet make every bone groan
with aching rheumatism. You blame
the weather, but the real cause is
acid in the blood. The stiffness
spreads and the pains grow worse
each year until you are a helpless
cripple, tortured day and night. Perhaps the disease may spread to the
heart—and that means sudden death.
You must not neglect rheumatism—
but you can't cure It with liniments,
plasters or hot cloths. They cannot
possibly touch the hlood. "The only
sure scientific cure ls Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills, because they actually
make new blood. They sweep out the
painful acid, loosen the joints, and
muscles, brace up the nerves, and
strengthen the liver and kidneys for
their work in casting out impurities.
This is proved by the thousands of
suffering rheumatics who have been
made well and strong by Dr. Williams* Pink Pills. Mr. T. H. Smith,
of Caledonia, Ont, is ono of these
many witnesses. He says: "For a
number of years I was badly troubled
with rheumatism, and was so crippled up I could scarcely do any work,
I tried a number of medicines, but
they did not help m-e. I saw Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills advertised as a
cure for rheumatism and decided to
try them. Before the third box was
gone I found myself much better. I
continued to use the pills throughout
the winter and they have completely
cured me I got so I could work on
the coldest day without a coat and
not feel a twinge of the trouble. I
think every rheumatic sufferer should
promptly take Dr. Williams' Pink
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure men
and women who are crippled with
lumbago, rheumatism, sciatica, para-
lysis and even locomotor ataxia, because they actually make new, rich
red blood. Tlie new blood sweeps the
painful, poisonous impurities out of
tho system and puts the whole body
into a healthy state. Nothing but
good rich blood can do that—and
nothing can give yoa" healing blood
except Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. If
the blood is bad the nerves are bad,
for the nerves feed on tho blood.
That ls the cause of sleeplessness,
nervousness, hysteria, St. Vitus'
dance, neuralgia, and loss of vitality
in men and women. Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills faithfully used cure' these
diseases and other blood disorders
such as anaemia, biliousness, indigestion, heart, troubles, backache, kidney trouble and decline. But you
must get the genuine pills. The
"something else just as good" medicine whieh some dealers try to persuade their customers to take never
cured anything or anyone. See that
the full name. "Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People," is on the
wrapper around every box. If In
doubt write direct to The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont..
and the pills will bo mailed at 50
cents a box or six boxes for $2.50.

Lord Brampton hus much to tell of
|Udgea und their Ways, us witnessed
by him before he was on the liench
himself. Here is one of a rude und
stupid  Scotch  judge:
One duy a celebrated advocate was
arguing before him, when, to express
his contempt of what ho wus suy-
ing. the cantankerous old curmudgeon
Of a judge pointed with ono fore-
linger to one of his ears, nnd with
tho other to the opposite one.
"\'ou See this,  Mr.  ?"
"I do, my lord," said the advocate.
"Well, it Just goes in h**re and
comes out there!" and his lordship
smiled with the hilurity of a judgo
who thinka he has actually buid a
good thing.
The advocate looked and smiled
not likewise, but a good deul more
wise, Then thc expression of his faco
changed to one of contempt.
"I do not doubt it, my lord," said
he.    "What is there to prevent it?"
Another Judge, sentencing a butler
who had stolen his muster's plate,
"Vou, prisoner, have no excuse for
your conduct. You hnd a most ex*
OSllent situation, nnd a kind muster
to whom you owed a debt of tho
deepest gratitude nml your allegiance
as a faithful servant, instead of
which you paid hiin by feathering
your nest with his silver spoons.'1
Thut Some judges think a good
deal of themselves is shown hy the
following story of Huddleston nnd
Manisty, who were nt Liverpool Assizes, and dining with tho Lord
Mayor. The toast of "The Queen"
was   proposed)   nnd    ""Manisty,   with

Hie* nnd Pntrld Fish Bighlr Sensen-
•d Their Main  Food.
Siamese food principally consists of
dried, frequently rotted, fish and rice
done iuto curries whicb comprise a little of about every kind of condiment
and especially a very popular sauce
called namphrik, a chutney-llke and
thoroughly mixed thing made of red
pepper, shrimp, garlic, onions, citron,
ginger and tamarind seeds. The only
reason for the fish being putrid is because the natives like lt so, for fish are
plentiful in their rivers and fishermen
numerous, though their ways of catching are rather amusing and antique.
One favorite method, borrowed from
the Chinese, ls beating tbe waters with
long bamboo sticks to frighten the fish
into an eight or ten foot squarish net
which is lowered into the river from a
framework en tbe bank by u system of
wheels and ropes and pulleys and
hoisted up again when the catch ls
complete. I must confess tbat when
the fish ln the curry chanced to be
dried instead of decayed I found the
concoction decidedly toothsome. Ia
fact, a really good curry is ln a class
apart and one must go to India or the
far east to get lt at its best Home-
times the natives eat pork and oftentimes chicken, but for the most part
rice and the fish curry constitute their
chief diet, supplemented by the fruit of
the country, of which tbere are many
kinds—mangosteen, mango, pineapple,
banana, orange, breadfruit and that
most healthful and serving of all Siamese fruits, the papaya, which grows
back from the water and ls a greenish
oval melon that suggests cantaloupe
when opened.—Outing.

Modern Surgery.
Nerve splicing, or restoring dead
nerves to life, is one of the latest
achievements of surgery. And, though
the process is still Ib its Infancy, lt ls
believed ln medical circles that the operation will one day become as common as trepanning. Three cases have
already resulted in perfect success.
The cure for paralysis and palsy is
brought about by means of this process. In tbe case of young children palsy ls brought about by some accident
of birth which compresses the nerves
which radiate from the spinal cord
and If in tbe upper part of the body
produces paralysis in the arms. The
technical name for this disease is
"birth Daisy."
Paralysis ln old people or those advancing in years is sometimes due to
this accident, though it more usually
comes from the decay of the principal
Two children victims of birth palsy
have been experimented upon with
such success tbat the patients are as
well as the most anxious mother could
wish. Dr. Clark, one of the operating
physicians, bas recently explained before an audience of medical men exactly how tbe operation is performed.
The nerves which Vbpply motion to tlie
affected limbs are severed from as
close to the spinal cord as possible
and tben grafted to the nearest trunk
line. If no complications arise ln courso
of time the delicate threads unite, and
the paralyzed parts take on fresh life.
Naturally the operation ls exceedingly
diilicult, because tbe nerves which radiate from tbe upper part of. tbe spinal
cord are so great in number and cross
and recross each other in so complex a
manner. Another difficulty lies ln the
fact that anaesthetics must be used
sparingly, for tbe longer tbe patient is
under their influence the harder it is to
follow the nerve threads.—Baltimors

The farmer's life is a constant battle with the weeds. A farm gets better and better or worse and a orse ; if the weeds are not
defeated they soon bury farm and farmer under their parasitic legions. Mid the struggle wilh the weeds still another struggle goes
on, the fight against grainless stalks and shrivelled, shrunken grain. Like begets like and every grain stalk is bound, if t&reding
be neglected, to have many undeveloped, shrunken or unfertile grains thereon. If they are planted what happens ?—more grain
stalks of the same kind spring up, the pollen from their sickly tips fertilises other healthy tips and begets a grain field full of larren
stalks taking just as much nourishment from the soil as actual grain bearers. Likewise, the weeds appear, no effort being made to
rid the seed grain nf their foul presence, and they have increased a hundredfold.
The problem is clear: you as a practical man, know these troubles as grim realities and yoa should plan to stop them. Ial
as show you how you can do it with a
how each year your land will become freer and freer of weeds until the farm is clear of them : let ns show you how you ean get
fancy prices for every buihel of your grain for seed, how your farm can be made to yield 40 bushels of Na I hard wheat to the acre.
Tlie flint ham Fanning Mill is the worker of these farm wonders. It is a seed Separator that rids your harvest ot all foul
weed-seeds, pigeon weed, cockle, mustard and especially wild oats. It turns foul weed-seeds and cracked, imperfect grains from muney-
takers 10 money-makers for you feed them to stock/or profit instead of replanting them to renew their soil-exhausting growth and
labor loss.
The Chatham Fanning Mill is a Seed Grader that delivers to yon, pure as virgin gold, the large, full, plump and perfect grains
that sell at top prices or, if sown, will bring forth from your land other harvests more perfect still.
No farm paiys just because it happens so to do. It takes brains to win. Weeding with a hoe is a heart-breaking task, the
cultivator is but little better: why not get rid of that pesl of weeds altogether when a Chatham Fanning Mill makes it such an easy
matter ? Some weed nlants carry as many as 375,000 seeds on a single stalk : think what thai means il they are replanted Tliere
is baldly any market for low grade giain. Let a quantity of cockle, mustard or wild oats crcrp into your product and down ga.es
your grade while down goes your price. If you sow uniform, perfect grain it will all ripen at the same time; tliere will be no loss
from haivesting short, immature, unripe grain-heads, and practically the wbole CTop will grade No. I. Old style mills hardly did
more than separate grain from chaff, light and heavy grains were more or less mixed and foul weed seeds ever present. To plant
such seed meant rapid crop degeneration and a weed-exhausted soil. The only Fanning Mil', lhat cleans and grade* with abso
lute accuracy and perfection every seed or grain that grows on earth is the Chatham.
There are many other fanning mills but the Chatham is the superior of them all.
It has an automatic device which keeps the screens and riddles free from clogging : it h-% 17 screens, insuring a wide range
of work and accurate adaptability to the particular work at hand : it has both side and end shake : a scrtw feed insures regularity
and its automatic bagging device is the greatest labor saver on arty mill made.
Repairs, which are rarely reeded, are cheap, always on hand and easy to get. The
Chaiham Fanning Mill has been a prize winner wherever shown. The Manitoba
wheat that won the Grand Prize at the Paris Exposition of 1900 and the Gold medal
• t Charleston, S.C., 1902, wu cleaned with a Canadian Chaiham Fanning Mill.
The prize grains from Oregon and Colorado at St. Louis World's Fair were aleaned
by a Chatham Fanning Mill. Over 100,000 are in use, every one giving unijiialified
satisfaction. Mills sold in 1867 are in use to-day, as good as ever. The Chatham
Fanning Mill is absolutely guaranteed for five yeara. These are a few of the
reasons why Ihe Chatham Fanning Mill is better than any other mill made. The
Chaiham Mill pays for itself before you pay us: the saving on five acres of grain for
one year pays lor it. w» wlll Nil you a Chatham Fanning MUI and yon need

wrltǤ as follows about her precarious
condition  before using PSYCHINE:
I am certainly thankful for what
the Dr, Slocuan treatment as embodied
In PSYCHINE did for me. "Some years
ago I was almost laid up with weak
Iuntfs. Oh, how they used to pain, and
my cough was very bad when 1 would
go out. My appetite was very poor,
and my stomach waa greatly disordered. Today I am strong and well, and
feel that PSYCHINE has brought me
permanent relief. I feel a new woman
now and am able once more to attend
my housework for which I had lost ali
Interest." Told In the fewer possible
words, these are the facts: Sufferers
with Coughs, Colds, La Grippe, Pneumonia, Bronchitis, Consumption, Night
Sweats, Chills and Feelings ot Depression or General Weakness or Decline,
use PSYCHINE and are cured, many
after older methods of treatment have
failed. People who could afford a
physician take PSYCHINE, while in
many cases doctors advise PSYCHINE.

The Dominion Government did a
good thing lor tae farmers of Canada
When it placed certain grades offence
wiro on tho free list a few years ago.
Since then galvanized smooth wire
Nos. 9, 12 and 13, which are most used
In farm fencing, lias been kept down
In price to a place which enabled thou-
s;i:iaU of farmers to replace old unsightly, wasteful, wooden fences with
neat, new wire structures, thereby 1m-
proving their own property and enhancing the valuo of the surrounding
n. Ighborhood, Now it transpires that
pressure i.s being brought to bear upon
the Government to go back to the old
irder of things by Imposing a customs duty on these grades of wire.
That Btich a change would work Injury
to the farmlug community admits of
no argument At present, practically
none of the gradi s*ht wire on the freo
list are manufactured In Canada, so
that any duty that would be put on
the wire would prove an equal tax
Upon tho consumer—the farmer. A
tiitiff of say 25 per cent, would undoubtedly euhance the cost of fencing fully ten to fifteen cents per rod.
Tliis would mean that the owner or s
medium sized farm would have to
bear an extra tax of fully $ir.O to
fence his farm. Were fencing an unimportant matter thero would be no
I'i'iisoii for alarm, bul with the passing of the old fences, and the increasing attention to Btock raising, now
fencing h p.n absolute necessity.
in tin* older parts of tho Dominion
ilie Improvement of farm bull.lings
and the construction of new fences
have been making very rapid strides
iliiiin?; the past few years, nnd it
would prove a very unfortunate mat-
ter if a cheok ware given to this much-
needed advance by (Im imposition of
a tax that could vork no benefit to
tlio farmer and al the same time hamper the Canadian manufacturers of
fencing who us< wire as a raw material. Rather than hamper farm Improvement, and demoralize nn Industry important to agriculture, byplaii*
lug wire which is now admitted free
of duty on the double list, it would
bo much better to wipe out tho present tr ifT of 20 per cent, on Nos. 7
nnd 11, which would enable farmers
to get a stronger style of fence without increasing tho cost.
Cvrlovi r»od Ua—m That OMalaa-A la
th* Sooth Sea Island*.
A singular dlstlncUon was established between tbe t,cz°m ln accordance
with the general savage theory of the
Inferiority, social and otherwise of
the female, which ls found to have prevailed universally ln tbe south sen islands at the time a>f their dlRooveiy
and for long afterward during a p***
riod covered by the early missionary
voyages and labors. Setting aside cannibal feasts at the end of a successful
war expedlUon, when capUves and victims were abundant and were roasted
and devoured, the usual food of the
men of these Islands ln ordinary circumstances was hog's flesh, with a variety of flsh from tbe surrounding
ocean, together with cocoanuts and
plantains, but the women were forbidden to eat or touch the provisions
sacred to male consumption, and an Infringement of this usage was rarely
overlooked, but met with the penalty
of death.
The system of food taboo denied, under the same penalty, to tbe sex the
use of the fire at which the warrior's
meal was prepared, the house ln which
he sat to eat and the basket in which
his provisions were stored. Such items
of food as native custom assigned to
the women were preserved by them
apart, deposited In disUnct baskets, to
be cooked when required at a separate
tire and devoured In solitude ln a little
but specially erected for the purpose.

A Pather'a Rebuke.
"As severe a rebuke as I know of,"
said a judge, "was one that a New
York millionaire administered to his
son. The son, like many millionaires'
sons, ls a hard drinker. He does no
work. Most of the day he lounges at
one or other of his clubs, taking a
brandy and soda every bour or so, and
ln the evening, after a good deal of
wine with bis dinner, be drinks steadily until bedtime. Nevertheless he ls
a young and handsome chap, and h<*
goes out during tbe season a great deal.
One day be received an Invitation to
a bai masque, and tbat evening be discussed wltb bis family tht various disguises that be might reasonably wear.
After a good deal of talk he was still
undecided and, turning to his father
he said, 'How would you advise me to
go to this masque, sir?' 'Go sober,'
the father answered bitterly."
