Mine Owners Pefition Government to Save the
Wc, the undersigned, who have boon producers or lead ore slnco thc Inception ot
the lead bounty ivct, respectfully address
you, as representing the mining Industry ot
the dominion, and request your favorable
consideration ot the following memorial
and further, that you favor us hy brlngng
tho same to the attention of the right honorable, the premier and your colleagues
of the   cabinet:
1. That said lead bounty has, by Insuring a stable minimum price, been most
effective and beneficial to the lead mining
Industry, with it to the smelting and manufacturing industries and consequently to
the general commerce of the dominion.
2. That such results have been produced
by a relatively small expenditure, as was
anticipated, and as was represented when
tho original request f��r consideration was
made to the government. Out of $2,500,000
originally voted to be exjpendjd ln the
period o'f bounty terminating 30th June
next, but {616,970.03 havo been expended up
to 1st Decemtber, 1907.
3. That on account of the high tariff
on load ores and Its products, still Imposed
by the United States government (which
It was anticipated might have been reduced ere this) of the recent Imposition
by said government of a prohibitory duty
on our line ores, a product tt our lead
bearing veins, thus depriving us of a
source of revenue and of the fact that the
lead consuming capacity of Canada has
not increased proportionately to our .output, since the inception of the bounty, we
���shall at the expiration of said bounty
period, be still unable to rely on a stable
minimum prlac for our lead, sufficient to
Justify Its production ia the form of ore
and the large expenditures on exploration
and development work necessary to maintain our mines and with them the entire
lead  Industry ot  Canada.
That without such a stable mtnlmum
price we cannot produce our ores, during
periods* of low prices ln the world's market,
which governs the market of Canada and
with such Intermittent production tbe Inducement to expend the necessary large
Bums In exploration and development will
cease to exist consequenUy the present ore
reserves ln our mines will be exhausted
and with them the lead mining Industry.
6. That with the United States tariff
and the consuming capacity of Canada as
at present, the necessary stable minimum
price can only be assured by a continuance of the present lead bounty or by an
extraordinary fncrease in yiio txlstlng
Canadian tariff on lead and Its products.
The undersigned therefore respectfully
request that the lead bounty act be extended for a further period of five years
with an expenditure not to exceed (500,000
ln any one year.
T. G. Procter moved that a resolution,
carefully worded, be adopted, embodying
the  views   of  the  memorial.
J. J. Cambepll second asking, howeverv
that sight should not be lost of the fact
that a tariff on load would be the more
logical  way of treating the matter.
Tills passing, Messrs. T. Q. Procter, J.
J. Campbell und I_. Pratt drorw up tho following resolution which will bo presented
at tho associated boards.
That this board approves of the petition
which has been signed by all the principal
lead produoers of thin section, asking the
dominion government to **xtend the lead
bounty for another ix.rl.xl of five years
after the expiration of tho present term,
reaogni_in_ that the attitude c. the government is more favorablo lo this method of
relief than to the readjustment of he
tariff, which this board haa always felt
and still maintains would be the most effective assistance to placing both the
local lead mining and smelting Industries
upon a flim basis.
That this beard recognizes that with
tho present condition of the markets there
Js danger of a number of producors being
compelled to close down with a disastrous
effect upon the commercial Interests of
"this section of the.counry and that a copy
of this resolution be forwaided to W. A.
Galllher, M.P., with a request that It be
communicated to the proper authorities
and that ho use his endeavors to obtain
the granting of the petition, and that a
copy of this resolution be sent to the
boards ot trade belonging to the associated boards ot tiodo with a request for
their co-operation and that our. delegates
be Instructed to endeavor to secure the
passage of a similar resolution at the annual convention of that body.

Ottawa, Dec. 13.���A    moral
In this article I shall continue to
discuss the subject of manures, and
shall deal especially with the use and
handling of farm manure.
The value of .farm manure has been
known for such a very long time, in
fact the practise of manuring the fields
is almost as ancient as farming itself,
that it is surprising that the average
farmer does not adopt better methods
of taking care of and applying the manure from his barnyard.
In spite of the warnings of chemists
and scientific farmers it is estimated
that nearly one half of the value of
the manure made on Canadian farms ls
wasted. Manures are valuable in proportion as they are known tocontain
three principal constituents; nitrogen,
potash and phosphoric acid. Of course
each of. these must be in available form
so that the plant may use them. For
Instance old manure is better for most
purposes than fresh, because the fermentation and decomposition which it
has already undergone has made its
contents more useable to the plants.and
not that it would assay higher. Similarly finely ground bones are worth far
more than broken bones, because a
piece of thick bone may last for many
years in tbe soil and be as useless
almost as any piece of rock.
Of these three forms of plant food nitrogen is by far the most important for
us to consider. It is much the more expensive to buy and it ls that part of
the farmyard manure that is most likely
to be wasted.
The liquid excreta of animals ls particularly rich ln ammonia or nitrogen,
and when we consider that throughout
the whole of this country there is
probably no effort made to /save any
of thc liquid portion of the animal manure, we reallce at ence one enormous
source of waste and one that we in
the Slocan, where manure will shortly
bo very available, will do well to prevent.
The solid manure from our stables
and barns Is usually piled outside in
the most convenient place, utterly re
gardless as to whether it ls a suitable
place for manure, it will probably be
fully exposed to the sun, and on a hot
summer day a tremendous smell announces the fact that this valuable substance called nitrogen, which costs
about as much per pound as prime
beef, Is evaporating rapidly ln the form
ot ammonia; in wet weather the rain
which is very possibly supplemented
ty  the  drippings off the  roof  of the
ure, we shall probably buy superphosphate gypsum and kainlt, and mix either one or perhaps both of these substances in small quantities with the
manure and earth compost. Gypsum or
superphosphate have the power to absorb nitrogen kainit**' which is a mineral found in Germany and acts as an
antiseptic, and by preventing the undue
fermentation of manure preserves the
nitrogen. Kainit ia largely sold as a fertiliser. It contains about 12 or 13 per
cent of potash, therefore if the chemical
analysis of our soil shows them to be
lacking in potash, it may indicate
which of these methods of preserving
the  manure we  should adopt.
Both kainit and superphosphate are
.cheap and .'bulky artificial manures;
for this reason they would probably be
expensive ways to buy either potash
or phosphoric acid in a country like
this, where freight rates are so high;
but if besides their one value as 'sources
of fertility they enable us to save a
great deal ��f nitrogen which would
otherwise be lost, they may prove very
Light sandy soils are likely to prove
deficient in potash. Tills is one of the
points that we may hope to have settled for us by the work of Mr. Rankine
and his pupils.

The action of Forrest vs. JJmith and

tried before Justice Martin at Nelson
Frilay. Tho suit was begun at 10 a. m.,
and at 7 p. m. all the witnesses had
ben heard but owing to the lateness of
the hour no judgment wan given. Witnesses for the plaintiff were W. Bennett, W. Breanan, W. McLanders and
W. Patterson. For the defence, Walker
Smith alone took the stand. The case
is one in which is involved the rights
of Forrest and partners to dispose ot
ore mined by them under a sub-lease
from Smith at No. 5 tunnel and up at
the Payne mine. Treves it transpires

plaintiffs assert thfey had no knowledge

Very much of this waste could be
prevented and we may hope to see all
our barns supplied with some suitable
arrangement of gutter, pipe, and cistern made to catch the liquid manure,
also a cement tank under a good roof
to hold the solids to prevent undue fermentation and help to absorb the ammonia. We shall probably learn ln
time to compost manure with some dry
earth, we shall spread a layer on the
floor of the tank and other layers at
frequent intervals throughout the manure pile, and finally if we haul out
this compost and do not apply it im
mediately to the land we shall learn to
.cover It with a good layer of earth.

'' "50arc*B**j*''��t3re"*ffi6 woY_[s uttered ere
Guy and the doctor both were with
Madeline, the former holding her tenderly in his arms, while he smoothed
the short hair, thinking eyen then
how soft and luxuriant it/was, and
how fair was the face which never
move/ a muscle beneath his sgfutiny.
The doctor was wholly self-possessed.
Maddy had no terrors for him now.
She needed his services, and he rendered them willingly, applying restoratives which soon brought back Bigns
of life in the rigid form. With a
shiver and a moan Madeline whispered: "Oh, grandma, I'm so tired," and
nestled closer to the bosom where she
had never dreamed of lying.
By this time Both Mrs. Conner and
Agnes had come out, asking in much
surprise who the stranger could be.
and  what was  the cause of  her  ill
ness. As II there had been a previous understanding between them,
the doctor and Guy were silent with
regard to the recent farce enacted
there, simply saying it was possible
she ntfis in the habit of fainting,
many people were. Very daintily
Agnes held up and back the skirt of
her rich silk, as if fearful it might
come in contact with Madeline's plain
delaine; then, "as it was not very interesting for her to stand and see
the doctor "make so much fuss over
a young girl?" as she mentally expressed it, she returned to the house,
bidding Jessie do the same. But Jessie chose to stay by Maddy, whom
they' placed upon the comfortable
lounge, which she preferred to being
taken to the house, as Guy proposed.
"I'm better now, much better," she
""���aid.   "Leave me, please.   I'd rather
be alone."
So they left her, all but Jessie, who,
fascinated by the sweet young face,
climbed upon the lounge and, laying
her curly head caressingly against
Madeline's arm,- said to her: "Poor
girl, you're sick, and I'm so sorry.
What makes you sick?"
There was genuine sympathy in that
little voice, and it opened the pent-up
flood beating so furiously, and roused
Maddy's heart. With a cry as of sudden pain she clasped the child in her
arms and wept out a wild, stormy
fit of weeping which did her so much
good. Forgetting that Jessie could
not understand, and feeling it a relief to tell her grief to someone, she
said, in reply to Jessie's oft*-repeated
inquiries as to what was the matter:
"I did not get a certificate, and I
wanted it so much, for we are poor,
and our house is mortgaged, and I
was going to help grandpa pay it."
"It's dreadful to be poor!" sighed
little Jessie, as her waxen fingers
threaded the soft, nut-brown hair
resting in her lap, where Maddy had
laid .her aching head.
���"Mliatry (Ttu* TnTi know who this beautiful child was, but her sympathy
was very sweet, and they talked together as children will, until Mrs.
Agnes' voice was heard calling to her
little /girl that it was time to go.
"I love you, Maddy, and I meat*, to
tell brother about it," Jessie said, as
she wound her arms around Madeline's neck and kissed her at parting.
It never occurred to Maddy to ask
hi* name, so stupefied she felt, and
with a responsive kiss she sent her
away. Leaning her head upon the table, she forgot all but her own wretchedness, and so did not see the gayly
dressed, haughty-looking lady who
swept past the door, accompanied by
Guy and Dr. Holbrook. Neither did
she hear, or notice, if she did, the
hum of their voices as they talked
together for a moment, Agnes asking
the doctor very prettily to come up
to Aikenside while she was there, and
bring his lady-love. Engaged young
men like Guy were so stupid, she
said, as with a merry laugh she
sprang into the carriage; and, bowing gracefully to the doctor, was
driven rapidly toward Aikenside.
Rather slowlv the Ho-*tor returned
to the office, and after fidgeting for a
time among the powders and phials,
summoned courage to ask Madeline
how she felt, and if any of the fainting symptoms lind  returned.
'No, sir." was all the reply she
gave him, never lifting up her head,
or even thinking which of the two
young men it was speaking to her.
There was a call just then for Dr.
Holbrook, and leaving his office in
oharge of Tom. his chore boy, he
went away, feeling slightly uncom
(ortable whenever he thought of the
girl to whom he felt that justice had
not been done.
' "I half wish 1 had examined her
myself," he said. "Of course she waa
excited, and could not answer; beside,

humbug tormenting her with Greek
and Latin. Yes; I'll question her
when I get back, and if she'll possibly
pass, give her the certificate. Poor
child, how white she was, and whnt
a queer look there was in those gre.'t
eyes, when she snid, 'I shall not take
Never in his life before had Dr.
Holbrook been as much interested in
any female who was sick as he was
in Madeline, and determining to make
his call on Mrs. Briggs as brief as
possible, he alighted at her gate, and
knocked impatiently at her door. He
found her pretty sick, while both
her children needed a prescription,
and so long a time was he detained
that his heart misgave him on his
homeward route, lest Maddy should
���be gone, and with her the chance to
remedy the wrong he might have
done her.
Maddy was gone, and the wheel
ruts of the square-boxed wagon were
fresh before the door when he came
back. Grandpa Markham had returned, and Madeline, who recognized old
8orrel's step, had gathered her shawl
around her and gone sadly out to
meet him. One look at her face was
"Vou failed, Maddy?" the old man
said, fixing about her feet the warm
buffalo robe, for the night wind was
blowing cold.
"Yes,  grandpa,   I  failed."
They were out of the village and
more than a mile on their way home
before Madeline found voice to say
so much, and they were nearer home
by half a mile ere the old man answered 'back:
"And, Maddy.  I failed too,"
Mrs. Noah, the housekeeper at
Aikenside, was slicing vegetable
oysters for the nice little dish intended for her own supper, when the head
of Sorrel came around the corner of
the building, followed by the square-
boxed wagon containing Grandpa
Markham, who, bewildered by the
beauty and spaciousness of the
grounds, and wholly uncertain as to
where he ought to stop, had driven
over the smooth-graveled road around
to the front kitchen door. Mrs. Noah's
spaciouu domain, as sacred as Betsey
Trotwood's patch of green.
"In the name of wonder, what codger is that? and what is he doing
here?" was Mrs. Noah's exclamation,
as she dropped the bit of salsify she
was scraping, ond hurrying to the
door, called out: "I say, you, sir, what
made you drive up here, when I'v*.

"I���I beg your pardon. I lost my

fetch it right," grandpa said, glanc*
ing ruefully at the ruts in the gravel
and the marks on the turf.
"Mre. Noah was not at heart an
unkind woman, and something in the
benignant expression of grandpa's
face, or in the apologetic tone of his
voice, mollified her somewhat, and
without further comment she stood
waiting for his next remark. It was
a most unfortunate one, for though as

right to say where h< should drive
and where he should not, the meek
old man concluded she was a n��*ar relation of Guy���mother, perhaps; but
no, Guy's mother was dead, as grandpa well knew, for all Devonshire had
heard of the young bride Agnes, who
had married Guy's father for money
and rank. To have been mistaken for
Guy's mother would not have offended Mrs. Noah particularly; but how
was she when she heard:
"I come on business with Squire
Guy. Are you his gran'marm?"
"His gran'marm I' and Mrs. Noah
bit off the lost syllable spitefully
"Bless you, man, Squire Guy, as you
call him, is twenty-five years old."

blind, he failed to see the point, but
knew that in some way he had given

ing enough to let the old man believe 'her a lady of the Remington
order, she did not explain that she
was simply the housekeeper; she simply said:
"If it'B Mr. Guy you want, I can
tell you he is not"at home, which will
save vour getting out."
, "Not at home, and I've come so far
to see him!" grandpa exclaimed, and
in his voice there was so much genuine disappointment that Mrs. Noah
rejoined, quite kindly:
"He's gone over to Devonshire with
the young lady, his stepmother. Perhaps you might tell me your business;
I know all Mr. Guy's affairs."
"If I might come in, ma'am," he
answered, meekly, as through the
open door he caught glimpses of a
cheerful fire. "It's mighty chilly for
such as me."
He did look cold and blue, Mrs.
Noah thought, and she bade him
come in, feeling a very little contempt
for the old-fashioned camlet cloak in
which his feet became entangled, and
smiling inwardly at the- shrunken,
faded pantaloons, betokening poverty.
"As you know all Squire Guy's affairs," grandpa said, when he was
seated before the fire, "maybe you
could tell whether he woul<_***be likely
to lend a stranger three hundred dollars, and  that stranger me?"
Mrs. Noah stared at him aghast.
Was he crazy, or did he mean to insult her master? Evidently neither.
He seemed as sane as herself, while
no one could associate an insult with
him. He did not know anything. That
was the solution of his audacity, ark)
pityingly, as she would have addressed a half-idiot, Mrs. Noah made him
understand how impossible it was for
him to think her. master would lend

"You sny he's gone to Devonshire,"
grandpa said, Boftly, with a quiver on
his lip when she had finished. "I
wish I'd knew it; I left my granddnrter

"I tell you it won't be "no use. Mr.

"Maddy would like this���its her nature," he whispered, advancing a
step or two, and setting down his feet
a_ softly as if stepping on eggs.
Happening to lift bis eyes before
one of the long mirrors, he spied himself, wondering much what that
"queer-looking chap" was doing there
in the-midst of so much elegance, and
why Mrs. Noah did not turn him out!
Then mentally asking forgiveness for
this flash of pride, and determined to
make amends, he bowed low to the
figure in the glass, which bowed as
low in return, but did not reply to the
very- good-natured remark: "How
d'ye do���pretty well, to-day?"
There was a familiar look about the
round cape of the camlet cloak, and
Grandpa Markham's face turned
crimson as the truth burst upon him.
"How 'shamed of me Maddy would
be," he thought, glancing sidewise at
Mrs. Noah, who had witnessed the
blunder, and was now looking from
the window to hide her laughter.
Grandpa believed she did not see
him, and comforted with that asBUr-
ance, he began to remark upon the
mirror, saying "it made it appear as
if there was two of you," a remark
which Mrs. Noah fully appreciated.
He saw the silk chairs, slyly touching
one to see if iUjid'feel like the gored-
peach-blossom dress worn by his wife
forty-two years ago that very spring.
Then he tried one of them, examined
the rare ornaments, and came near
bowing, again to the portrait ol the

lifelike it looked standing out from

Mrs. Noah received hia thanks

Yorkshiremsn Now Include Them at
an Article of Diet.
Sad tidings for snails comes from
Yorkshire. Hitherto it haB' been
commonly supposed that the virtues
of the snail as an article of diet have
only been appreciated by our French
neighbors, but this is a mistake, for
in the coal mining village of Knott*
ingley, Yorkshire, a few miles from
Wakefield, the snail appears to be so
eagerly sought after as a table delicacy that a snail famine is feared.
It is estimated that for many years
snails have been consumed in Knott-
ingley at the rate of nearly a quarter
of a million. The origin of the custom is curious. The local medical
dispensary was in need of funds,* so
an enterprising local publican hit upon the happy idea of offering boiled
snails at six a penny to his customers,
-the proceeds to go to the dispensary.
The Yorkshire miner is not extraordinarily particular what he eats, and
his sporting instincts are keen, therefore contests as to who could eat the
most snails soon became popular.
Other public-houses' in the district
took to making similar delicacies, and
in this way considerable sums were
raised, one public-house alone raising
$45 a year in thia way. Once started,
the taste for boiled'" snails developed,
and now Knottingley, Brotherton,
Castleford, and many other mining
villages in the district have their
population of snail eaters. Interviewed na to the effect of the food upon
the health of the people, one of the
best known medical men in the district expressed the opinion to a press
reoresentntive that anaila were not
clean <*-eatures. "JBut I must admit,"
he-anii! 'that they do not appear to
ha*"" nrodneod anv ill r-ffects upon the
neo;.!e." Tbere is a firm local belie!
that a snail eaten alive is a certain
cure for consumption if talcen in the
early stages of the disease. The snails
are gathered from the walls and hedge
sides, and so c-cnt has the demand
been, one public ho"s'e alone providing 13.000 of them la-t vear, that they
are now beeon-iino* cpn-c*. and the dis*
pensary funds aro suffering in consequence. The di~.n<*nsnrv authorities,
it should be nddod. have no direct
responsibility for the practice.
Workmen   Discovered   Cremated   Remains of Woman In Tin Box.
Some excitement was cauaed in
West Ealing, England, recently, owing to a rumor that a tin trunk containing charred human remains had
been found in a house in that locality.
Workmen are engoged in pulling
down the house, and while examining
a cupboard, says The London News
Agency, tliey discovered a box about
18 inches long, 12 inches wide, and 9
inches in height. The box was sealed and conveyed to the police station, where it was opened by the divisional surgeon, Dr. Bonnet, who pronounced the contents to be the cremated remains of human bones. The
ashes were perfectly white, and among
them were small pieces of bone.
The police at once instituted inquiries and found that thc box belonged to a former tenant of the house.
It contained the ashes of his first
wife, who had been cremated. He
was able to convince the police that
everything was in order by producing
a certificate of death and cremation.
He said that the box had been left,
behind by accident.
It appears that upon the death of
his first wife the tenant in question
caused the body to be cremated. The
presence of such a gruesome relic in
the home evidently proved distaste-! i
tul to the second wife. Consequently:
the casket was taken to the genUe-j
man's offices���part of the house in;
question���where it was pliced in a
tin trunk, which was locked and deposited in the back room.

Well   of   the   Home   Prescription
Which  Thousands Are   Using
Mix the following by shaking well
in a bottle, and take in teaspoonful
doses after meals and at bedtime:
Fluid Extract Dandelion, one-half
ounce; Compound Kargon, one
ounce; Compound Syrup Sarsaparilla,
three ounces. A local druggist is the
authority that these simple, harmless ingredients can be obtained at
nominal cost from our home druggists.
The mixture is said to cleanse and
strengthen the clogged and inactive
Kidneys, overcoming Backache, Bladder weakness and Urinary trouble of
all kinds, if taken before the stage of
Bright's disease.
Those who have tried this say it
positively overcomes pain in the
back, clears the urine of sediment
and regulates urination, especially at
night, curing even the wortjt forms
of bladder weakness.
Every man or woman here in Canada who feels that the kidneys are
not strong or acting in a healthy
manner should mix thia prescription
at home and give it a trial, as ft is
said to do wonders for many persons.
The Scranton (Pa.) Times was first
to print this remarkable prescription,
in October of 1906, since when all the
leading newspapers of New York,
Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburg and
other cities have made many announcements of it to their readers.

The Tonic Treatment for  Indigestion
Is the Most Successful
Loss of appetite, coated tongue,
bad taste in the mouth, heavy, dull
headache and a dull, sluggish feeling
���these are the symptoms of stomach
trouble. They indicate that the stomach is on strike, that it is no longer
furnithing to the blood the full quota
of nourishment that the body demands, hence every organ suffers.
There are two methods of treatment���
the old one by which the stomach is
humored by the use of pre-digested
foods and artificial ferments, and the
new one���The Dr. Williams*' Pink
Pills method���by which the stomach
is toned up to do the work nature intended of it. A recent cure by the
toni-a treatment is that*, of Mrs. Jas.
W. Haskel1, Port Maitland, N.S. She
says: "For years I enjoyed perfect
health, but suddenly headaches seize'd
me. I had a bad taste in my mouth;
my tongue was coated; I grew tired
and oppressed; my appetite left me
and such food as I did eat only caused
distress. I had severe pains in my
chest. I lost all strength and was
often seized with vomiting. At different-times I was treated by some of
our best doctors, but although I followed their treatment carefully I did
not get any better. One day while
reading a paper I came across a case
similar to mine which had been cured
by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I immediately purchased a supply and it was
not long before they began to help
me. I grew stronger day by day till
now I am as healthy as I ever was.
I have a good appetite, am strong
and active and can attend to my
household duties without fatigue. I
have no hesitation in Tecommenaing
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to all sufferers from indigestion."
Rheumatism, kidney trouble, neuralgia, St. Vitus' dance, headache and
backache, palpitation, general weakness, and a host of other troubles

Prjsident Falconer of Toronto on the
Maritime   Provinces.
In his recent address to the Canadian Club of St. John, N B., Dr.
R. A. Falconer, president of the University of Toronto, said: Individuality
in countries, town* and persons is disappearing so fast that the interests
and richness of life are probably less
than they were. Let me urge you not
to be over anxious to reproduce here
the same type of living which is found
elsewhere. These provinces, if they
live their own simple and yet busy
life, will enrich the total life of the
Dominion more than by seeking to
follow the example of laige ana
wealthier provinces. The very variety
of life here gives it character. Here
there is no monotony of landscape, and
you have the sounding sea running
far and wield and bringing ships from
foreign ports close to your own homes.
You have the breadth and mystery of
the ocean, here no one industry prevails over all others. You have farmers, miners, lumbsrmen, those who
follow the sea, each with his way of
looking at life, and as they co-mingle,
each adding interest to the whole.
You Have many who by education
and travel are able to impart their
refinement to the community, making
their influence the more sensible as
their are no ci*i"s large enough to
dissipate the culture of the few. In
the towns and cities there are numbers of thoughtful, quiet people whose
interest in the higher side of life extends far more widely than they ima-
trine. The provinces would bs distinctly the poorer were these people
to be gathered out of the towns and
centred in large and rapidly-growing
cities. If anything haB distinguished
the Maritime Provinces in the past it
has assuredly been their reputation
for intellieence. Few countries of the
new world have bad a higher average
of thoughtful competent citizenship.
For Generations the rights of the people have been understood, as also the
necessity for intelligence in order that
the privileges of a democracy may be
exercised. This has partly arisen
through the contest for political justice. In the Maritime Provinces it
may not have bnen so violent as elsewhere, but it wns very real. Our fathers understood what they wanted,
and they learned to govern themselves.

If you spend three dollars a day
and earn two you are sure to come to
bankiuptcy, unless perchance, some
rich friend comes to your assistance.
And yet this is just what thousands
of us are doing in regard to our
health. By worry, overwork, anxiety
or the disobedience of the laws of
nature, the energy and vigor of the
body is wasted more rapidly than it
is built up, and the result is the bankruptcy of the health and the decay
of the body.
Dr. Chase's Nerve Food may be
likened to the rich 'riend, for it supplies in condensed and easily as
similated form the very ingredients,
from which nature constructs nervous energy and buildB up the human
Sleeplessness, headaches, indigestion, loss of appetite, tired wornout
feelings, spells of weakness and despondency are some of the symptoms of exhaustion which point to
the approach of nervous prostration,
locomotor  ataxia  and   paralysis.
No one would think of neglecting
such ailments if they realize their
condition, but they do not, so gradual and insidioua is their approach.
M:S3 Lena Herbert, Lowe Farm,
Man., writes: "I had suffered for two
yean with dizzy spells, pains in the
bact, cold hands and feet, nervousness, jerking of the limbs, sore
tongue, soreness of arms and shoulders, and general exhaustion. About
seven months ago I became so nervous that I could not rest or sleep, and <
could not do the least bit of work
without suffering dreadfully from
pains in the back. I could hardly
walk could eat very little, and felt
that people were always watching my
body twitch.
"I tried several medicines with little
effect, and was a mere skeleton of
skin and bone about to give up in
despair when I heard about Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food, and began using
it. I have used in all fourteen boxes
of this preparation, and it haa built
me up until I am now strong and well
again. Dr. Chase's Nerve Food has
done me a world of good, and I feel
that I cannot recommend it too highly to persons who suffer as I have."
If you are persistently subject to
these Bymptoms you are in danger.
Your blood must be enriched. Your
nerves must be invigorated. Your
syBtem must be built up. And there
ia no means whereby this can be ao
certainly accomplished as by the use

"About three years ago, catarrh in

treatment and a liquid to use locally.
"This gave me relief for a time,
but soon afterwards the disease returned.
"I waa then suffering very much,
my appetite h?.d left me and I was
growing we.n';<!r.
"I had frequently read pamphlets
regarding the cures made by Peruna,

to its doing me any good, I decided
to try a few bottles.
"I had not taken Peruna for more

"As I continued taking the remedy
the disease gradually disappeared,
and in a few montha I was entirely
rid of the nauseous malady."

breakfast daily.      _

are arranged out at an angle Into the

A Vienna Specialist's Ideas on This
Fascinating Subject. *
The bid fashioned definition of
beauty sleep was tbe sleep that ls
taken before midnight. Beauty sleep
Is the sleep a woman gets after she
has slept seven hours and before she
bas slept nine, Bays a Viennese specialist.
A woman needs all of seven hours'
sleep for the building np of ber system. Then she needs two hours mon-
for the recuperation of her body, and
the extra two hours will restore her
complexion, make her eyes bright, taHje
the wrinkles out of her face and keep
her form elastic.
The woman who wants to derive the
fullest benefit from her beauty sleep
will compose hei mind before sinking
off into slumber. She Willi think
pleasant thoughts. Worrying makes
furrows In the brow and sets lines
around the mouth. A little light In a
bedroom ls a good thing for some people, for It will act cheerfully upon thc
nerves aud drive away nightmare.
Do not allow yourself to be awak
ened In tbe morning If you mean to get
beauty sleep, or if you must be aroused
let it be ever so gently. Do not .rake
up with a start, with un alarm clock
or ln consequence of a bell ringing,
for any of these sounds will jar the
nerves and destroy some of the good
the sleep has done you.

She Deceived Ibsen.
The late Henrlk Ibsen upheld the
superiority of women In his dramas,
but in real life he considered tbem Inferior to men ln many lines of usefulness generally classed as feminine. Foi
example, his friend, John Paulsen,
ft tbe London Times says tbat one of
Ibsen's maxims was this: "No woman
can write a cookery book, and no woman can sew a button on fast."
He lived up to the latter part of his
dictum. When he detected a loose button on any of his garments be retreated to his own den, locked himself in
nnd with elaborate preparations sewed the button on. He took as much
pains with the work as be would with
the final copy of one of his plays.
Then he used to brag about the performance, saying that he would not
put trust in a button sewed on by any
woman, not even by his wife. His
wife used to laugh. She confided to
Paulsen that she secretly resewed all
the buttons tbat the poet had sewed���
sewed them as only a woman can, she
said. He always forgot to fasten the
thread. "But don't undeceive him,"
the faithful wife added appeallngly.
"It makes hlm so happy to think tbat
he does it."	
A Summer Dish For Winter Time.
Fried tomatoes are a luxury that
comparatively few housewives can afford to serve during the winter months,
yet If they will follow this old Maryland recipe this dish mny be enjoyed
on the coldest days of the year as easily as In the middle of summer, says
tbe Delineator. To accomplish tbis
feat, however, the tomatoes must first
be cooked ln tbe sumnper, wbeu tbey
are plentiful. Select the large, firm
tomatoes and fry them Just as you
would If you intended them for immediate service. Then pack them in
medium sized stone jars while still
bot and pour a rather thick coating of
warm Urd over them until they bave
been completely covered. When tbe
Jard bas cooled thoroughly cover the
jars nrst with a cloth and then rather
thlekly witb paper and let them stand
In a cool, dry place until required.
Whcfi you desire to serve them remove the Bllces cnrefully, relieve them
of any superfluous lard and then warm
by drying slightly. Tbey will prove
every bit as delicious as when freshly
fried. .

Tourists' Craze to Possess  Mementos
of Foreign Travel.
A party of Americans recently went
over St. Paul's Cathedral. Ther explored the crypt, stared at the statuary, and then climbed the stairs to
the topmost gallery.
There one of them hung back from
the party. He was presently discovered trying to chip flakes of stone
from one of the ornamental pillars.
"I guess I only wanted a bit of St.
Paul's to take back with me to America," he drawled by way of explanation.
Souvenir hunting has developed into
a craze, and there is no institution
of any size that has not suffered from
the  ravages of the souvenir hunters.

Tlotels Looted.
The managers o*! famous hotels have

Charged With Having Blown Up His
Own   House.
The experts engaged in enquiring
into the origin of the recent explosion
at Lord Ashtown's hoiiBe, Glenahiry
Lodge, County Waterford, Ireland,
have drafted a remarkable report, suggesting strongly that Lord Ashtown
himsei; and his domestics were responsible for the affair. The police
have identified the pot containing dynamite ob belonging to a house on
the Glenahiry estete and used for
holding lime, and the sticks used as
props as the handles of a barrow used
in house work at Glenahiry. All
agreed that no forcible entry had been
made into the lodge. Lord Ashtown
claims $1,000 damages from the taxpayers of the locality rnder the Malicious Injuries Act'. They refuse to
pay, and have svmmoned Lord Ashtown to submit to a sworn investigation. The motive ascribod to him is
a desire to discredit the Nationalist
cause by inventing acts of terrorism.
Born Without a Brain.
The medical evidence given at a
recent inquest at Southampton on the
body of an infant which died soon
after birth showed that the child had
no brain. The coroner remarked that
in his lengthy experience he had never beiore heard of a child being born
without a brain. But the case is not
so extraordinary as it would seem at
thc first glance. "When it is stated
that the child was "without a
brain,"", said a medical gentleman to a Tribune interviewer,
"it probably means that it was without a cerebrum���the upper portion of
the brain, which is only found very
highly developed in man and the
higher animals, and is regarded as the
seat of thought. The child must
have possessed the cerebellum, or
tower brain, which is the centre of the
nervous system, or its life could not
hsvt been prolonged even for the
brief time it seems to have lasted
lu the lowest forms of life the cerebellum is by far thc greatest part of
the brain. The cerebrum is present, if
at all, only in a very rudimentary
form, nnd the Southampton case is
no doubt, an example of the quite
familiar phenomenon of atayism, oi
'throwing-baek,' by which the char
aetoristicB of some ancestor or pre
cedent type are reproduced in whole
or in part. Cases in which thc cerebrum is far more nearly absent than
it ought to be are, unfortunately, fai
too common���common enough, almost, to justify Carlyle's dictum
about 'mostly fools.'"
Plenty of Chances.
A young man proposed for the hand
of a millionaire's daughter.
"Well," Baid the millionaire, frowning thoufhtf\*lly, "what are your pros*
pects? Ib there, any chance of promotion in your business?"
"Any chance!" cried the young
man. "Well, I should say so! Why,
we employ 200 men, and my job is
next to the lowest in the establiab-
nent"        .
Different With Him.
When Robert Van Wyck was mayor
of New York he waB careful as to his
personal habits, especially about the
city ball. Oue day he called on the
mayor of Dublin at bis hotel. That
hospitable gentleman desired to set up
something that would show bis good
feeling toward the city he was visiting.
Mr. Van W__ck begged to be excused.
"If I should drluk." he explained. "I
might not be able to bold my Job of
