New York, 8th.—A despatch to
the Herald from its Hong Kong
correspondent says:—"The change
of base of Japanese operations by
sea frcm Port. Arthur is declared
here to be proof that "the bottling
up of the'Russian fleet within the
harbor at Port Arthur is complete. ^
Mail boats and pas5enger.packets
plying in the j ellow Sea are once
more flying the Japanese "flag and
are running absolutely unattended
by ships cf war. The blockading
of the harbor is now declared so
complete that it cannot be remedied
by the Rnssian.t since the point for
the operation of divers for the blowing up of the wrecks in the harbor
is within range of the guns of the
Japanese fleet without the harbor,
and the fall of darkness every evening is the signal for the near approach of Japanese torpedo aud gunboats to a point - commanding the
situation. It is said that a fleet of
but three cruisers and six torpedo
craft can effectually continue the
blockade of that port.

The earlier Russian movement
into the Northwestern Korea was
regarded as a diversion, but it now

To'cio, 10th.—It is believed here
that there has already been a decisive naval engagement in the vici

bombarding that town, but to locate and attack the armored cruisers. GrouiDui, Rossi, Rurik aud Bo-

Russian squiidion was.absent; this,
if true, gave the Japanese squadron
the advantage of avoiding the shore

Russian ships in the - vicinity of
Possi^-t Bay and gave battle there.
The names and numbers of the
ships of the Japanese squadron are
kept secret. - The squadron was to

It Creeps Stealthily into the System find Develops into  Many Diseases.  Bright's  Disease,   fle.art  Disease,  Diabetes, Dropsy and Rbou-   ,  mutism, are Among the  Forms it Takos.  Dodd's Kidney Pills the One Remedy That Never Fails to Cure  It, No Matter How or  Where It is' Found.  t -  ���   Of all the diseases the human body  lias   ' to combat in its struggle . for|  kealth, the one that   is steadily growing .in strength and terrors is Kidney  Disease.   ' Quietly, stealthily as a serpent, it creeps   on its   victim till the  latter   is   enveloped in its folds, and  the greatest,physicians   the world has  tever known stand ' helpless before '  it  As the last fold goes around the strug  gling  victim  and  the doctor    shakes  his head and  whispers "Bright's Disease," hope fades to'nothing, and the  sorrowing' friends feel that death has  marked their loved one for its  own.      ... ..      . ..       .  The alarming increase this   terrible,(lia" stand-by���Dodd's Kidney Pills,  disease is making is evidenced   by the       BRIGHT'S DISEASE CURED  letter. He may not even know that  there never was a disease that took  in all classes ol the community but  what nature ''provided a cure within the means of all classes of the  'community. What he docs know is  mot? to the point than all this. He  Knows that Dodd's Kidney'Pills will  c-iire all aches, which experience has  taught him come from the Kidneys,  lie'takes 'DorldJs Kidney Pills, and  goes on with his work.  SOME   EXCEPTIONS.  OF course there are exceptions to every rule., Even among common people there are those who neglect the  early warnings of Kidney Disease.  H takes exceptions to prove the'  rule���but many of these exceptions  prove more���they prove that no case  of Kidney Disease is too far gone for  Dodd's Kidney Pills to cure. Bright's  Disease, Diabetes, Dropsy, Heart Disease���all the varied forms of Kidney  Disease in its advanced stages���have  been met by Dodd's Kidney Pills,and  never once has Canada's great Kidney Remedy had to admit defeat.  Prom the Atlantic to the Pacific,  and from the Great Lakes to Hudson Hay, Dodd's- Kidney Pills are  used, and wherever used they have  triumphed over Kidney Disease' in its  every form. Thousands of Canadians  are shouting their praises of the conqueror.,  .Just a', few of those who have neglected the early symptoms, reached  the more advanced stages of Kidney  Diseases, .and found a cure in Dodd's  Kidncv Pills are given "below. There  aro thousands of others. Ask in your,  own immediate neighborhood. You  will not, have to go far to meet men,  women and children who.1 have either  warded off or cured the terror of the  present age by using the, old   'Cana-  to be sick-since   I'used Dodd's Kidney Pills.        -  George Robertson,  392 St. James St.,  Montreal, Que;  RHEUMATISM  CURED.   -  Rheumatism and kindred Kidney  Diseases, such, as Lumbago, Sciatica,  and Gout, arc caused by uric acid in  the blood. If the kidneys are put-in  working order -they strain all the  uric acid out of the blood, and the  Rheumatism goes with it. Take the  case of W. G. Cragg, of Dresden, Ont.  Here is his statement:  For eight years I was troubled  with Inflammatory Rheumatism. I  could scarcely get around to do my  duties in my store. I had 'some of  the best doctors I could get,- but  nothing, I tried would ever give  mo relief. I was also troubled with,  Gout. I started using Dodd's Kidney Pills and had. only taken six'  boxes when I-was-completely cured.  ' W. G. Cragg, ���  Es-Reeve of Dresden! Ont.  ALL   KIDNEY .DfSEASL.-J  CURED.  These are only a few cases taken  from thousands to show the efficacy  of Dodd's Kidney Pills in advanced  stages of Kidney Disease. In other  foiins of Kidney trouble, such as Urinary troubles, Gravel, Female Weak  ness, etc., Dodd's Kidney Pills have  the same record. They always cure.  As for Pain in the Back���the first  symptom of. Kidney trouble���ask your  neighbors. You'll'find the majority  of them look on Pain in the Back as  a danger signal, and on its first appearance safeguard themselves aigainsti  this terribly fatal Kidney Disease by  driving it away with the old Canadian standby���Dodd's Kidney Pills.   "  The Nervous Depression of England.    1  Awaking to the fact that''lih-e supremacy of England in commerce and manufactures  has passed away, lie English  are having an unusual, but not unwhole-  'somo, art.ta.ck of modesty.    They begin  -to  distrust  themselves,   to  study_   the  Germans and Americans, to try to find1  ont what is the matter with tlie inviolate  island.     Dr.  LockyeT   turns   from  reading the stars to lament tlhe dwindling of English'brains, which  aire probably  just  as good as itihey ever were,  and,that is saying a good deal. . A-party-  of Englishmen has oome 'to the United  State3 to study- tho American system of  education.    'Somethin^r may be learned  fiom that, especially in technical education, in which' Great Britain- is deficient.  But the cause of American progress is  not there, or, nit least, is by no means  wholly there.    The power of initiative,  the flrec play of individuality, the carelessness of tradition, Che quickness and  seeming  recklessness    with  -which    the  costliest machinery is discarded for better, the superiority of tlhe skilled labor,  somewhat hampered, it 5a true, by the  imperious  resolve  of  the labor unions,  whiah have been 9o ruinous in England,  to   lower  the  average of 'performance,  the comparative absence of lines of ��o-  ci&l cleavage,  tlie opportunity open   to  nil���those aire the main causes of �� iner-  Heart Disease the RflosS  Sudden and Dangerous of Ailments.  Dr. Agnew's  u re*  lean success.  s,  4.  $ ���  i.  columns    of- almost every newspaper.  f For, not among the lowly of the earth  alene.does     it look for    its victims.  Statesmen,   judges,   eminent  lawyers,  and    honored    divines    are numbered  among those, who in recent   months  have   gone down to 'Jieir 'graves with  the fell   marks of this   dread disease  upon their   bodies.     In fact, so prevalent   has the disease become that- a  'celebrated \New York specialist stated recently that not one person   in a  hundred was free from some taint   _ of  Kidney Disease.  -    - WORKS  IN  SECRET.  It is, the secrecy of Kidney Disease  . that makes it the more dreaded. You  ���can,fight an enemy in the open   with  some - chance of success,  but if  he is  lying in wait to take   you at an unwary moment your chances of successfully fighting him are terribly 'dimin-  , ished.    So it is with Kidney Disease.  Its first warnings  are so  faint as to  lie hardly   noticeable, a slight     pain  ' in the back that is charged   up    to  over exertion,  a slight  discoloration  ���f the   urine or   a burning sensation  ' while 'urinating that hardly   attracts  attention.       That    is all.    But that  means     that    Kidney Disease is    at  work gradually eating its way    into  your system.    The pain in the    back  grows more   severe, the urinary trouble   more   complicated,  swellings under the eyes and of the limbs   denote  the coming  of Dropsy,  sharp  shooting pains   in   the   joints, and muscles  telllhat Rheumatism has you   in   its  grasp, or   perhaps   a   day or    two's  illness loads to the   calling   of     the  doctor,     and    suddenly    the terrible  truth     is    forced  upon you���Bright's  Disease   has you in its grasp  -WAY OF ESCAPE.  ��� With this silent, relentless enemy  Blowly but surely eating its way into prominence and marking that prominence by a yearly increase in the  length of its death list, the demand  of the day, of the hour, is "Show  his the way of escape." Nature never  3>ut mankind in -a critical condition  without providing a way of escape-  providing mankind were wise enough  to take the way provided. In this  case the way of escape ,is a simple  vegetable remedy. It has been before the people of Canada for thirteen years, and, like all the great  relievers of nature, has been first received* and first appreciated by the  lowly in life, those known as the  common people of Canada.  Is it the commen people of Canada  who die Avith Bright's Disease? No,  it is the bright and .shining marks,'  those who arc stationed above the  heads of the masses. Ask the reason of this! Go to the people who  arc practically exempt from Kidney,  Disease in its worst form, and ask  them. With almost a single voice  they will reply: "Wc cure our Kidney ailments with Dodd's Kidney. Pills  and Uicv ncvi"- trot a chance to develop into that terrible disense that carries so many prominent men inlo'the  grave."  ON  WITH THIS WORK.  Bright's Disease has invariably  yielded to a treatment of Dodd's  Kidney Pills, no matter how firm a  hold it had secured on its victim.  Possibly the most talked of case of  recent (late is that of Alice Maud  Parker, of Shubenacadie, Hants Co.,  N.S. The full story of his case will  he found in the ' current number of  Dodd's Magazine. ��� Herewith ' a short  statement from the young lady's mother is appended:  Two doctors pronounced my daughter's illness Bright's Disease, and  gave her up to.die. Her eyelids swell-i  ed till she could- hardly see; her legs  from her ankles to her knees swelled.  Her belt in-health was twenty inches,  when 'she was at her worst it was 48  inches. Then she gave up all other  treatment' and started to take Dodd's  Kidney Ipills. By the time she 'had  taken the first box I saw a change.  It took a long time to bring her hack  to perlect health, but Dodd's Kidney  Pills did it. To-day my daughter is  in.perfect health.  Mrs. T. G. Parker,  Shuhenacadie, Hants Co., N.S.  DIABETES CURED.  Diabetes is another of the most  fatal forms of Kidney Disease that  has been cured by Dodd's Kidney Pills  and by no other medicine. Among  those cured of this terrible ailment  is Mr. Charles ' Gilchrist, ��� for fifteen years Chief of Police of Port  Hope, and afterwards for twenty-two  years Fishery Overseer under the Dominion Government. He makes the  following statement:  I was a sufferer for ten years with  Diabetes and Kidney Disorder. At  times my urine was of a dark brickv  color, and I would -stiller, something  awful while passing. I tried doctors and medicines, but could get no  help till I fried Dodd's Kidney Pills  They have made me a new man. The  citizens of Port Hope all know" me,  and can vouch for the above.  Chas. Gilchrist,  Ex-Chief Coast and Fishery  Overseer,  Port Hope.  HEART DISEASE  CURED.  Hcait, Disease is a result of Kidney Disorder. Bad Kidneys -mean  impure blood, the action of impure  blood on the heart causes Heart Disease      Dodd's Kidney Pills cure it:  I sulk-red for years with Heart Disease, Blight's Disease and Rheumatism. 1 was so feeble 1 was unable  to do anything. There was three  months I abandoned all medicines,and  resolved to let myself die. Then I  was led to try Dodd's Kidney Pills,  and the good the first box did me  surprise me. I have taken twenty  boxes in all, am well of my Heart  Disease, my Bright's Disease, and my  Rheumatism.  Dame Louis  Provost,  St. Magloire, Que.  DROPSY  CURED.

To my surprise, he said he  was going to vole for the other man.  Now, Colonel Higginson 'had, been the  lieutenant-colonel of the negro regiment  of wihich Robert fphaw was colonel, ond  after Shaw was killed in the cha-rgc at  Fort -Wagner lie led the regiment.

Stealthy as a thief in the night, Heart*  Disease heralds its coming only by the  deadly grip it lays upon its victim���the  distressing symptoms of Palpitation and  Short Breath, Smothering, Spells, Vertigo, etc. Nothing will remove theip  fatal grasp save Dr. Agnew's Cure f09  the Heart.

Jzotta hastily tore a leaf from hor  memorandum, writing hastily the following lines:  "Mr. Ulmont Ulvesiford��� have the  courtesy to meet mo to-night in tho  lilac grove that borders the park I  have, the right to demand this 'm-  fcorview, which I could havo forced  upon you without warning had I   so  in the moonlight.  iA strange light gleamed in      'Mrs.  Lorrimer's Dyes.  "I must  breathe no   word of  this  to   my   poor   Loraine,"   she   thought;  I must act upon my own .judgment."  .Mrs. Lorrimer was a proud conscientious lady, who would have  scorned to do a mean act; yet for  the sake of hor idolized Loraine she  told herself sho must know .the contents of the letter which bad <been secretly conveyed to her daughter's  husband under cover of night; she  folt fully justified In acquainting herself with Its contents.

There was little;mercy fn the mothers  heart when she  thought of her  trustiog  Loraine. c  .as Izetta heard the hurried foot-  stops, her heart beat cruelly; they  stopped suddenly before her.  Izetta stood quite still, with clasped hands and eyos downcast/ the tall  lilac pushes tossing their fragrant,  purple plumes above hor dark, flowing  clear,  ringing  tones.      "Heaven  does  knoiwl I am an honorabla wife!"  "A precious example of an honorable  wife, forsooth, making appointments  wiLth other ladies' husbands I"  "Madam I" crded Izetta, hoarsely, "if  you will hear, if yotf will goad me On  to madness, know, Ihfcm, why| I havo  soiight this interview with Ulmont  Ulvesford." Her voice rang out in a  sharp, agonizing cry. "Hear me, Mrs.  Lorrimer I" she cried, "and may God  in heaven judge if I speak falsely J  Ulmont Ulvesford is ray husband."  ��mS \ad h^ A1doric; as- she still  oallod  him m her    thoughts,    would  OHAiP.TER xxxy^  Am a   Lawful Wife.  "Are you mad 1" cried Mrs. Lorrimer, recoiling as though a sudden  blow had been struck her.  "No", answered Izetta, solemnly, "I  am not mad, I have spoken the  solemn truth; I am Ulmont Ulvesford's lawful wjfe." 1  "'Tis false I" shrieked Mrs. Lorri;  mar. "If an angel", cried-it, trumpet-  tongued, I would not believe it. You  have forgotten, g'ul, that you are  speaking of ���,my daughter's hus-  iband.".  "Hear^ me,   Mrs. Lorrimer,"     said  Izetta,  in a   clear,  calm  voice.      "A.  year  ago  Ulmont   Ulvesford  and      1  crossed from Italy In tho same steamer, the White Cresson.

A' yoiing man  stood    near us on  tbo deck    leaning  over the rails; poor grandfather beckoned hiim to us and whispered that he  was dying.     'I will soon, be gone,' he  cried, 'and my child will bo alone.     I  cannot die and leave her unprotected;  will    you     protect my little orphan  child?' Tho young man promised.

"I cannot tell you  what      impulse  have crlad out, 'So, this U the husband who deserted me!' You did  nothing of the ��� kind; you . wound  yourself into . tho wife's heart, to  learn more of tho husbandl"  _"I���I���did not know Aldo��� Mr.  Ulvesford,  then," gasped 'laetta..  "You do not adhere to -your Htory.  First you claim him as your husband,  now you admit you did not - know  him," said Mrs. Lorrimer, * sarcastically, eyel&g the young girl orouoh-  Ing before her, half leaning against  the U:ao bushes, stunned by her cruel  words. ���   ,  "Alderlo's��� !Mr. Ulvesford's hair  was dark then, and ho wore no mustache," faltered  Izetta.  Bad a thunderbolt suddenly fallen  from a elear sky, Mrs. Lorrlmor could  not have been more astounded; the  blood receded from her. face, leaving  it deadly pale. 1  (With the rapidity odt lightning  something- akin to the truth flashed  upon her. 1  She remembered the dark- brown  curls had boon shorn at the time of  the almost fatal accident, and the fair  hair .changed him wonderfully;, then, '  most pitiful of all, sho remembered  that that accident had left a blank  in the mind of Ulmont TJlvesford; the  inoidents of that past he had so  fruitlessly  endeavored   to  recall.  "Great God!" she muttered, "can  this be the missing link? No," she  cried vehemently, "Heaven "is not so  unkind to my poor Loraine."  A great spasm ol pain shot through  her as she turned to-ilzotta in her  woe. She forgot her angor, pride,  everything in her agonized fear for  Loraine; she only remembered ��� she  was a mother standing by, hearing  her darllag Loraine's honor called in  jeopardy. ,  There was solemn truth depicted In  liotta's face; yet how could sho believe her? It was beyond human nature. 1  She put  out  her  hands in a   groping way, and would have fallen    had  ���laetta  tiot  caught  her  in her  arms.  Isetta knew sho was her most bitter foo, yet she felt the deepest pity  for the mother's  woo.  .,Tha' mother  was  blindly    praying  that Loraine might not bo sacrificed;  ooane what might, sho would do val-  l**t battle tor the sake of her child.  tNo  one  would   bcliive you,"     sho  cried out sharply.  "Tfto whole world  would say it. was false; you havo no  proofs.   I   will compromise with you.  Leave America  with  your child     at  onoe, and I   will give you half     my  wealth.      I  will  provide' handsomely  for .your little child; when (I    die ho  shall be tho heir of ,the Lorrimer estates.     I will gladly, freely, give it;  only go away.     If you breathe    one  word of this you will break Loraine's  heart.,    She has been little less than  an angel to you; 'twas she who rescued you from  the storm in    which  you would have perished but for her.  L am a proud old woman," she cried;  but see,   I kneel in the.dust at your  feet, I  kiss the horn of your garment,  I beg,you to leave Loraine in peacel"  Izotla's face  was  white as'marble'  as she raised the kneeling, trembling,  sorrow- stricken mother  to her feet.  _  ,'It  it   was   but  for tmy  own  suke  I would, not  hesitate for an  instant,  Mrs.  Lorrimer," she said.  "I    would  sooner die then breathe one-word of  this  terrible;secret. My little child's  honor, alone, demands that I   should  speak."

Cashel gave, the' police  a chase for forty-five days, and during that time has not been in ore than  six miles away from the, city at any  one time, and during a portion of  the time he was in the city. The  police learned of his supposed whereabouts two weeks ago, and have been  fluietly keeping'watch until yesterday  when his capture was effected without  great trouble.  Cashel was game to the last, and  did not give up without a struggle:  Constable Biggs found his man concealed in one corner of the cellar of  Pitman's house. He held a light to  the corner, whereupon Cashel .fired a  revolver, the bullet grazing thie constable's head. Another shot also'  failed, and , Biggs retired , from tha  cellar, as he was unarmed. Procuring a revolver, Biggs returned to tho  cellar, but was met on r the dark  stairs by Cashel, and further shots  exchanged, only-one taking effect, as  it lodged in  Cashel's heel.  -Ducirio to itiiru   i:nn Out.

His  escape from the jail at Calgary, Dec.  10, the day before he was to have  beent exocutcd, was a most daring  escapade. With two revolvers .smug-  bled in to him by his brother, or  by the girl with whom.he was in  love, he held up the three officers  whilo still handcuffed. The men wore  driven into the cell in which tho  prisoner had been confined, and forced to throw to him the key to the  manacles. He had been permitted to  leave his cell for exercise.  A reprieve had just been refused,  but before the date of tho execution  the hanging had been postponed untj]  Jan. 20. Without this postponement,  Oashel would have been dead in law,  after tho date of his proposed execution, and could not have been further molested if captured.

From Alexandra. Host in  peace."  King Edward," Queen Alexandra,  Emperor William and the Prince of  Wales all sent special representatives, and the Lords of the Admiralty and a large contingent of nav'al  officers in full uniform attended.  .Joseph F. Auerbach, the eminent New  -*ork lawyer, who is engaged in the litigation-over the street car franchises in  Chicago, and who, if it is much more  prolonged, will be able to vote in that  city,  told   us  of  a' monument  in  the  etmetery at, Rookville Center, a Long  Island village, erected in memory of a.  number of sailors who were lost in the  wreck of the schooner "Bristol" of Mexico on that coast some time in the fifties.  There are several inscriptions, one testifying to the liberality of the citizens of  tie town of Hempstead in providing a  plot of ground, the dimensions of which  are given, for the    interment. of    the  bodies., Another inscription reports the  fact that the expenses of the burial were  paid from money, found on the bodies of  the  deceased,  supplemented    by   funds j  contributed by charitable citizens of the I  town.   Tlie third is purely sentimental,! feeds  her vanity.      When  in   company  with girls, no men being present, tho  "man's woman"��� delights in humiliating  and insulting other women. The "man's  woman" can he very mean and waspish  when she deems it safe to be sincere.  But when men come in, she becomes  gracious and bc::ignant to the same woman whom, perhaps, a moment before,  she was taunting and stinging. A man,  seeing her generous manner to these  other women, attributes to jealousy the  hatred with which she is regarded by his  Bisters.  Men, especially young men, nTc generally poor judges of women, at first sight.  They pick out the showy, shallow girls '  who talk fluently and sing college songs,  and they see nothing in quieter bodies  who, perhaps, possess better minds and  hearts than more ostentations and more  popular girls. If only the poor fools of ,  men who whisper confidences into tlie  ear of the "man's woman," and write tjll-  ly letters to her, could hear the goddess  repeating their secrets and reading their  letters aloud to crowds of giggling girls,  if the deluded men could behold the  "man's woman" mimicking them to  whole rooms-full of other women, they  would moderate their admiration for  her."";..:  ������; ,-'....  The art of the "man's woman" consists in making -each man believe that  he is the one particular man, her nearest intimate and dearest friend. This  Involves a 'certain'amount of hypocrisy.

They  go their several ways, wiser, and marry  the girls that the "man's woman" has  snubbed and derided. And when she  sees thirty drawing near and herself still  unwed, the "mini's woman" often marries some silly boy in a hurry, before he  has had time to think,-and retires from  the field amid laughter.

'  ��� A zeal for God, but not according to  knowledge.���Romans, x., 2.   ���  In the minds of many people sincerity, or earnestness of purpose, or conviction of rectitude, is--a justification  for almost, any sort of action. "I believe, therefore 'T do," is the syllogism  of most humble philosophers. "He is  ao sincere," we say; "therefore he must  be excused."  Bat it is 'only abstractly speaking  that we admit this. .When the consequences of exterior action touch us  personally and unpleasantly we are apt  to lose sight of the theory.

In Springfield, Mass., the other day  this thought came powerfully to mc as  1'stood looking at the St. Gattdens statue' of Deacon   Chapin,  one    of    the  1   founders of the community, a Puritan  .of tlie Puritans.   There he stood in his  - peaked hat, his long cloak, his severely plain attire, with his Bible in    one  liand, liis rod in tire other, cast iii ensuring, weather-beaten  bronze,'  which  assorted well with his grim, stern and  forbidding countenance.   He typified a  class oft men whose zeal for God was  certainly tremendous, who, by the ex-,  crcise of that zeal, stamped themselves,  their beliefs and their habits upen the  pages of history with such everlasting  force, that v their influence    persists  in  / large measure to this day.  Certainly tWe men who flogged the  ,Quakers.at the cart's taii and executed  the so-called witches in that .free coun-  , try where they had "established a  ���hurch without a Bishop aud'a Government without a King" could not be  ��� accused of lukewarmness.'I do not leve  the Puritan, but I respect hEm. He did  much good in his way.-and the good on  the  whole  greatly    overbalanced  the-  ��� harm. There is something respectable  about zeal, even ii it is not according  to knowledge. But how much better  it would have been-for humanity, and  bow much mere good could have been  '   done, if that fiery energy for God expressed   by    the    terse    monosyllabic  *real" had'been accompanied by adequate knowledge of Him !

Like Signor Benedick, nobody marked! them, save in amused pleasure. Yet  ' I could imagine the shudders which  might have run up and down that  bronzed Puritan backbone at such a  desecration of the Sabbath day. _  We have indeed changed, bul in the  general amelioration ot conduct and  ideals we have lost something. Our  religion is somewhat emasculated. It  Is too dainty. The naked ugliness  of sin is concealed. We consider  it, more polite and refined to drape  and cover up shames, and shams, and  frauds, and wickedness of every kind,  rather than sternly to expose and rebuke 'them. We want more virility  unci more strength in religion and  life. We want to become more strenuous in our religion and life.

There is considerable difference in appearance between good'an'd poor samples of alfalfa seed. Those with a  bright, . greenish ( ycoIor have usually  good vitality; darker-colored samples  have considerable brown seed present,  and these are generally dead or give  a very weak growth. A prevailing-  color of light green is an indication of  many immature seeds, which- are also*  of low vita-Hty. Not i-ifrcqucmly alfal-  la seed contains considerable impurity  in the form.of broken pods, stems and  weed seeds, which detracts from its  value.  Even a'sample of seed of lew vitality  may safely be used, provided the percentage of growth is known, as th��  quantity of seed,per acre may then be  properly regulated. Therefore, it is  important that fanners growing this  crop, particularly for the first time,  know what proportion of the seed will  grow.

Twenty-three women    deans  of    the  leading co-educational universities of the  Wos'fc, wlio -met in conference at Evan-  ston. 111., on. November 4th, are reported  to   -have   agreed   that   co-education,   as  worked  out  at  present' an   many   colleges is a menaee to the-American home.  The -trouble,  as  these ladies found  it,  seems to be that the girl slludents, liv-i  ing in big dormitories, got too much accustomed   to  an   independent   bachelor  life.   One dean said: "Every young woman student in an educational institution ought to liave a mother there as well  as one at home."   That seems like very  good sense.   Mothers are imperfect creatures, but it is^a mighty-poor mother  that ifl not better for a growing girl  than none.   A first-rate boarding school  is often a better place for a girl than  iher own home. - The system of such a  school   makes possible   some details  of  training  that  are  hard  to  achieve   at  home.   .But no boarding school ds first-  rata which does no't provide successfully  for mothering its girls.    It was in this  important department of mothering   that  the  women  deans   seemed   to   consider  tome of the co-educational institutions  defeetive.    Tlie remedy they suggested  was to do  away  with  big dormitories'  and house the girls in cottages.   To do  that  would  -be to  .borrow  one  of  the  pood points of the good boarding schools  and to create something ,like home life  for   the  girl   students.    Home   life   is  primarily what girl students shouldj be  fitted for.

No doubt  the shortage in barrels is responsible  for some of this irregularity; nevertheless, a number of apple shippers have  expressed the intention of using caly  the standard size (96 auarts to the barrel).    As this  is  practically   the  first  year any but the large barrel has been  used in Ontario, apple shippers should  immediately arrive at some agreement  among themselves 'as to the sire to be j  used in future.

The fair daughter of the court garden1-  er was loved by a young artisan, but  lacked the dowry which the* family considered necessary to a bride. One day,  chancing to break off a spray of orange  blossoms, the gardener gave it thoughtlessly to his daughter.  Seeing the coveted prize in the girl's  hair, .the wily ambassador offered her a  sura sufficient for the desired dowry,  provided she .gave him the branch and  said nothing about it. Her marriage was  soon celebrated, and on her way to the  altar, of all her happiness, she secretly  broke off another bit of the lucky -tree  to ndo'ra her hair.  Whether tho poor court gardener lost  his head in consequence of his daughter's  treachery the legend docs not state, but  many Lands now know the wonderful  tree, and ever since that wedding day  orange blossoms have been considered a  fitting adornment for a bride.  omes in Essex.  A correspondent writes enclosing the  following extract from an Essex paper ,  showing one of tha peculiar survivals  of ancient customs still to be met with'  in England :���"Early this (Tuesday),  morning the Town Crier of Colchester  (John Everett) ushered in winter���according to immemorial local custom���  in the following terms :���  " 'Cold December has come in,  Poor men's clothes are very thin.  The  trees   are-bare,   the   birds   are  mute���  A pot and toast  would very    well  suit.'  _  "Having announced that it was freezing sharp, the Town Crier wished the  public a Merry Christmas, and expressed a modest hope that he might not b�� ,  forgotten."  Live Stock Farming.  Regarding   the   value of live stock  farming as compared with tlie growing  and selling of grain, Prof. L. ,H. Pam-  mel, of the Iowa Agricultural College,-'  says: .   .  It  has  been  demonstrated  both  by  experience and practice that the farmer  who sells beef, perk and mutton that   <  he has produced  from  the   corn  and  grass raised and fed on the farm makes '  more money per acre of his land and  per dollar of his capital than the one  who grows only.'wheat or corn or cotton and sells  it.    It is  not necessary,  to entirely discontinue   raising    these   ',  crops, but if we are to produce a sur-'  '  plus to be sold in,, foreign markets it  ':���  is best to  expert that surplus in the  most condensed and marketable form,"  as meat and animal 'products,' rather ,  than in the original  crude  and bulky  state.   Iii the long run the farmer will  make the most   money   who    devotes  fields to the growing) of fcTage crops -  to  feed stock,  making  use of all  the  raw products at home, thereby saving /  not only much of the cost of transportation, but in maintaining the fertility  cf  the soil.    By  doing so,  corn belt  farmers will  maintain  their  pre-eminence in agricultural lines.    Experience,  of the past few months has shown that  the men who stuck to feeding and were  not ��� tempted   by-high prices  to   sell  their corn have made the most -money.  Anything that will  enhance  the  productive capacity  of our  soils   fcT. the'  production   of   forage   conditions   will ,���  help the farmer."
