Thus whon Secretary Fowler read the  communication from the executive council of tho Irrigation Congress to be held  at Spokane, from August 9fch to 14th, in  which it was asked that Creston should  be represented, the members of the local  Board of Trade took the matter up im-  mediatrly without descussion.  Mr. G. G. Rodgers was unanimously  the choice of the meeting as a delegate,  Messrs. Moran and Atherton being  appointed a oemmittee to raise thevf unds.  There was au excellent attendance of  members and several new members were  enrolled. President E Mallandaine  occupied the chair. After the minutes  of the previous mes iag were read, com-  muiications were read from J. H. Schofield, M.P.P., re sewerage and a stipendiary magistrate; Proctor, re excursion  rates from prairie points; Nelson Board  of Trade re exhibiting fruit at Ottawa  and Sherbrooko Fall Fairs; from Chas.  G. Boeder, ro Irrigation Congress.  The communications were dealt with  as follows: Reid-Bevau: "That secretary write again to Mr. Sehofield-and  secure more definite information re  shelving of sewerage proposition."���������  Agreed. Re Proctor, who wrote asking  for more definite information as to pro-  cheap railway races'" to Creston from"  prairie points, it was pointed out that  the O.P.R. are advertising cheap rates  io homeseekers from the prairie, and  that Creston should reap its proportionate share of the good scheme if stop-over  privileges were allowed here. It was  suggested that dates should bo fixed upon for such privileges being extended to  Crestou. A committee, consisting' of  Messrs. Raid, Fowler and Rodgers was  formed to supply all information to  Proctor. The communication from the  Nelson Board of Trado was filed.  The Board arranged to publiBh a  pamphlet at an early date, desoriptive  of tho Crc-ton district. This was done  after Mr. Mallaudaiuo had pointed out  that tho O.P.R. had offered to insert  suoh pamphlot among literature issued  to intending Bottlers.  Tho mooting adjourned for a month.

John Bums, Once Socialist Leader,  y   Now Extreme Conservative.  Old Comrades is Res! Flag Oratory  Most Bitter of His Enemies.  Queer things are happening to John  Burn*,.and..they illustrate the old doctrine that there's often nothing so conservative aa a revolutionary once lie  gets iirmly :nto power, says a London  cable. The former errand boy in a candle  factory, dock "walloper," and labor  leader* who got into jail for spouting  red flag oratory in Trafalgar- square, lias  become, favorite Minister of the King,  and is generally in attendance on, hhn  when His Majesty performs'any-public.  "function in or near London.  It is especially noticeable that when  the King inspects or opens any great  public work where the expert knowledge  of a practical man might be useful to  hhn, Burns is not far fioai his sovereign's elbow, and it has also become noticeable recently-that they-are the best  of friends.  '"Ilonest. Johiij" as he delighted to bo  called in bis Socialistic (lays, also is a  familiar figure at all the royal -Hunts  and levees, and Loudon society is "united-  in declaring, that the President of the  Local Government Board in court dress  is quite th������ handsomest member of the  Government. In fact, John Burns, ex-  Socialists escorting a duchess to supper-  at a court ball, is a sight which makes  some;-;of the older politicians smile and  some of his old associates rage.

One can hardly scan through a paper  now *witho������ji_reading  a , notice    about  some man or woman who has   suddenly  disappeared^  Yet many of these cases do not find  their way in+o ths newspapers, which  have so many facts of life "to chronicle  day by day. If the man or woman be  well-known, or if he or she has disappeared in a way which suggests foul  play or some mysterious romance, the  case obtains publicity, aud becomes a  sensation, which lasts a few days and is  then forgotten.  The police know more than the public  about the numbers of- people who are  reported missing by their relatives and  friends. And it is no new- phase of social life. It is not an epidemic, due to  any new form of hysteria or mental disease, caused by the increasing worries  of the world. For years ���������*' people have  gone wandering away from their home  circles, and most or* them have never  como back.  "What is the secret o������ the*** missing  people? "What are the hidden causes  which prompt them to steal away from  all that should be dear to thom iq life,  from their own little world of duty and  pleasure, family ar.d friends?  The answer is not to be found iu the  cynical assumption that most of thom  have excellent reasons for disappearing  ���������that they have falsified their books,  and made free use of other. people's  inonev, or beeu too familiar with other  done mechanically. They seem quite  sane and;,;'level-headed. Bat all* the  while there is a voice calling them to  come avyay���������sonicv,*herc, anyhow. They  must-escape   .  *.   .   escape!  And so', "one day the respectable and  respected husband, the good father, the  quiet daughter, steal away, without a  wordj arid go wandering. Sometimes  they are; very cunning, with the cun:  ning of madness. Sometimes they just  walk out; into tho streets, and take si  railway ticket or a steamer ticket, not  caj-eful toi hide their traces, ��������� but careless of /everything except that one ter-  ribley; resistless desire which drives  them away. ���������;'-'.';���������./"-A AA A'> AA"v  *  It /is a  tragedy for those^ -whQy havo'  been left behind.

Hie took his place in the bread  line and the next afternoon he exhibited  his lump of bread in' th** House of'���������Commons, and declared that half the men  who were being fed nightly liad come to  their present condition through chink  and.were unworthy of charity. This  did hot add to his "popularity with the  Socailists.  Iu tlie realm of administration John  ITurn's ..also'has given evidence of "she  gre.i t change which he ha.* undergone,  and there is not one'among his old associates who has a good word for: him.  I-'.ven the more radical, members of ths;  official Labor party declare he isAai  brake on the wheels of; progress,, and the  Daily News, the organ of the progressive  wing of the Libs*iU, has damned hi''K as  a  '*ea<-tiana������*y.' Ay- -A A AAA A"-'       '���������: /-'-.A'  When John Burns was placed at th*  head of the Local Government Board it  Was'.' thought he would undoubtedly approve and support the experiments in  Socialism which ywere being made by a  number of'boards of/guardairis and bthar  local authorities. Instead of that he  auoniinced at thestart that he was there  to see that the taxpayers' money was  not-wasted, and he instituted a number  of investigations which resulted in sOiiie  ,fii ihe gunrdians and councillors going to  'jail   for  helping   theinselvos   to   public  HE DEMANDS CLEARER ACCOUNTS.  Then he disallowed all sorts of bills  for experimonf'-* about which it could  only be said that they'were, extravagant;, and he insisted on all the. local  authorities in England adopting a new  system of bookkeeping, by which he is  able to 'ape at a glauco the state of their  finances, just as a business man can tell  how his affairs stand.  In the general meetings of the Cabinet  he \wa become recognized as one of;the  strongest conservative factors. Cabinet  meetings are supposed to l>e secret, hut  Cabinet Ministers will talk, especially  fi-hen they are angry, and I have Ijoeii  .Informed on high authority that  throughout the recent navy crisis 'Bums  was ono of tho strongest opponents of  the "little navy" policy. He stood out  for eight Dreadnoughts at once, when  other Ministers who are called imperialists were willing to accept the demand of Winston Churchill and Lloyd  ���������a-ioygc that the programme Bhoudl bo  cut down to four.  ��������� Of Course all this did not endear hhn  to his old associates, but tho worst was  yet to come. In tho eyes of the English  radical the unforgivable sin is to question, tho omniscience of Parliament and  the bencficionco of Parliamentary action  as.-a. cure for every ill from which the  body politic suffer".

We    ftave ' a longing to "get  away,"   anywhere   and  anyhow.     It   is;  this*  natural   instinct wliich has made  our travelersAand explorers. It  is  this  ''waiider-geist",/ which makes many;: men.  of   t'o-'dayr^spotting     men,   journalists^  fiddling fellows, music-hall '"tu*,ns," the  tramps -oa    lis    highways of life���������go  wandering always, from one city to another, or frotti one country to another  unable to/;settle down, or to stay long  in oue place.    They want to get away  from the familiar things of life to the  unfamiliar.    They want,  still more,  to  escape from themselves.  That is one of tlie strongest instincts  in nature, or at least in human psychology���������the desire of escape. ��������� It is  the secret of much of the fretfulness  and restlessness of modem life, for  with many of us it is a thwarted instinct. It is so difficult to get away, so  difficult to escape from tho self of which  wo aro very tired.  To this is <1ucj some amount of crime,  and more tragedy. Tho instinct-of (.escape breaks out sometimes in suvpris-.  ing ways, and among people most content, ns it seemed, with the hum-drum  routine. I know, for instance, of a domestic servant who had lived in model  respectability for twenty years with an  old maiden lady. Suddenly this prim  person, who seemed to he tho figure of  propriety in cap and apron, rebelled  against her narrow lifo, and escaped  with the grocer's young man,  Moat people escape from tho narrow  groove in other and less dangerous  ways. Many get away from thoir own  lives hv rending about other people's  lives in works of fiction or history.

A settlement was made for the pair and in  the ninth year of their marriage a  child was born to, them,  terward the newly-made father got  into trouble.

Aud it is not so  much wonder, since the traveller bore  ihe identical marks of the parson of  Martin Guerre and moreover was i<*.n-  iliar with bits of family,, history such  as only the genuine Martin could  have, apparently, known. At any rate  the deserted wife accepted the newcomer with all fondness .And in the  course of three years presented the  supposed Martin Guerre with two  children.  As to whether Madame Guerre ever  had suspicions concerning her alleged returned husband can of course  never be known, lt would see-i as if  those almost imperceptible cifferences  between man and man must have  been observed by her, but it may be  that the stranger showing her "a tenderness and consideration which her  real "husband had.not, she was somewhat willing to put up with the new order of things. She may also have  thought that her own peace of life  would be best conserved by the keeping pi he? own counsel. Se this as  it may, it was not long until rumors  arose. It was said that the man who  claimed to have returned to his wife,  MADAME GUERRE,  was a fraud. The excitement finally  became such * that at the instigation  of Pierre Guerre, an uncle of the missing man, Madame Bertrande was  forced to have her alleged husband arrested. The accused made an eloquent   defence   and   espial, ed   ir  a stocky man, that the matter of height  was something witnesses might easily  be mistaken in, and /that of necessity  great changes had taken place in the  appearance of Guerre during his long  absence. Lastly, the prisoner's apparently inexhaustible familiarity with fam-  timony which might affect; the life of a  relative. The elder sister of Guerre en-  ily records seemed to show that it was  absurd to claim him to bo au imposter.

This  being done, the accused did not appear  to be in the least abashed or frightened,  but  began to arrogantly cross-examine  the  NEWLY ARRIVED CLATMAKT  and put questions, to which the newcomer could not answer with nearly  the readiness of the prisoner, the imposter, if such he was. But, examining the  newcomer, it wasAascertained that he  bore also all the marks ascribed to the  genuine Martin Guerre.

He claimed to have -been a soldier in Spain  until, consumed by the desire to see  his wife and child, he had resolved to  return. Ke also gave apparently  overwhelming .evidence, through his  accounts of secret "family history,-,of  matters pertaining-to the Guerres.  that he was the Bona-fide husband of  Ma-dame'' Bertrande. His replies to  sharp- .--questionings concerning thia  were ready:and invariably accurate.  The wife corroborated his statements,  but now denied positively that the  accused was her. husband. .One hundred and fifty witnesses weie- sum-  moiied and of these, forty swore that  the prisoner was beyond doubt the  im ising Martin Guerre. O-n the other  hand, a great body claimed the man  was no,.other than Arnaud du Tilh,  called "Ponsette," whom they had  known since a child. The othor witnesses, sixty in number, declared tho  resemblance between the two was so  close that they could not render an  opinion.   ,  The trial resulted, to the general surprise, in a conviction. The man waa  pronounced to be Arnaud du Tilh and  sentenced to decapitation. Appeal to  the higher court brought an order for  a now trial; it appeared that thirty new  witnesses' had como forth. Of these, ten  declared him to bo the true Martin  Guerre, seven or eight decided in favor  of  ARNAUD DU TILH,  and tho rest, were uncertain.    Moat of  the witnesses agreed in describing Martin  Guerre as  taller and  darker' than  the ucc'u'sod, rdcnvlcrer in body nnd limb,  round-shouldered, with a high, divided  nose, pendant lowor lip and squat nose,  having  the   trneo  of   an  ulcer on  tho  check and a scar on tho right oyohrow.  Arnaud,  the  accused, was short    and  stout, having neither humpy shoulders  nor squat noso.   But all thoso marks re.  -ferrcd to as belonging to Marti..

With regard to dissimilarity In height  A^$  s-a*flrr,  it  wns urged  that thero  these questions he replied *������"tli "absolute  accuracy. But the accused being brought  in also answered the same questions as  readily and exactly. ���������  The court wa3 dumfound������d. In despair  it was decided that the omy course was  to bring in the relatives of Martin  Guerre, the four sisters, the uncle and  +he brothers of Arnaud du Tilh, and let  them decide once for all which was the  rea Ionian. All did so, with tin exception of the 'brothers, whom the court  considerately allowed freedom from tes-  fered first, paused a moment, as if thunderstruck, and then fell weeping upon  the breast of the newcomer and acknowledged him +o he her brother. The other  witnesses, one by one, followed suit.  Finally tne wife came in, and tbe instant  her eyes lighted on Guerre she threw  herself down beside him, weeping and  trembling- and begged his compassion  on her Air die deceit that she had been  led into by artifice. She averred'that no  sooner had she discovered her error than,  but for the fear of God'*** wrath, she  would have concealed her dishonor in the  grave. Tn place of this she had determined on revenge, and resolved, through  the courts, to pursue the man who had  dishonored her to his deserved punishment.  The trial ended in a conviction of ihe  accused as Arnrud du Tilh, for the  crimes of imposture, falsehood, substitution of name and person, adultery, rape,  sncrilege and detention. He was sentenced" to execution.  While under condemnation in the prison at Arthrues, Arnaud made a confession, in whieli he stated that the idea of  impersonating Martin Guerre first came  to him on being mistaken by a. number  of intimate friends of Martin "Guerre for  that individual.  In the year 1841* at Gibraltar, the  rock-bound' fortress which England holds,  as the key to the Mediterranean, there  wns tried a case that ha������ ail the el**-  .ments for a Stevenson or Haggard yarn.  James Baxwell was a wealthy merchant, livlnsr in a small house near the  bnse of Mont St. Michael, so famous for  its caves. H������ had a daughter, a girl of  remarkable beauty.. Naturally she had  many suitors, but she treated all with  firm indifference. Finally, while at  church one day, she glanced up and saw  a* handsome stranger looking at her. The-  stranger was  "WILLIAM KATT.  a young Englishman. He found means  of securing presentation to the beautilul  Elezia, the daughter of merchant Baxwell. It was a ease of mutual love. Soon  the young man was before the merchant  for the purpose of asking his daughter'*}  hand in marriage.  The father was bitterly opposed to the  marriage. "It snail never be!" ho declared. "You belong to tho prevailing religion of England, by.which.my family has  suffered long and tcrrijl.v. Ton aro a  Lutheran. She is a Catholic. It shall  never he!" The lovers Implored tho old  man's consent, hut he wns obdurate. The  daughter final'-- asserted thc-blood that  was in her, and declared she would marry Katt nt all hazards.

SOME  FACTS ABOUT  PUPILS WHO DO NOT PASS GRADE'S,  In 55 American cities   there are 1,907,000' school children.  Of these 312,500 didn't pass, either lWi or IS0S, and aro taking  their grade over agaiit.  It costs $13,719,000 to keep these repeaters in school.  Can these children who don't pass be* blamed?  It looks as if the blame rested  on  the  school  systems.  It costs $83,966,71? to run these 55  school  systems.  Yet they spend 15 per cent, of this money to do over again work  which   they   ought   to   have   done in the first place.  Any business enterprise, run on this basis, would be wrong and  a failure.

About the hardest thing to measure  is the efficiency of the public schools.  Are our public schools any good? is  a question that is hard to answer, in  a convincing way. Can they be made  any better? is another-serious question.  When is a school good? When is  it bad?  Leonard P. Ayre3, expert of the Russell Sage foundation, is at las   find-  LEONARD P. AYERS  ing a measure for public schools. He  has studied the schools of 63 American cities, and a report will shortly  be made to educators all over the  country.  One of Ayres' tests is: How strongly do the schools draw the children  and how long do they hold them?  The average American city carries  all its children to the south grade,  half of them through the eigncn grade,  and one-tenth through the high school.  This means that the average American' school' is not doing all that it  is assumed to do.  The number of pupils who drop out  before they finish the eighth grade, is  a fair test of any school system. But  how high do they go before they begin to drop out, is another important question. In the southern cities  many colored children drop out in  the fourth grade. In Baltimore, Camden, N.J., and Newark, N.J.,, many  drop out in the fifth grade. The Ohio  cities lost most in the sixth grade.  Minneapolis, Boston and Grand  Rapids keep most of their pupils  until they are through with the seventh grade.  In Quincy and Haverhill, Mass.. the  children don't stop until they are in  the eighth grade. .-���������������  Another test of school efficiency is:  "How. many children have to repeat  their grades?" ,  In 'Somerville, Mass., only 6.5 per  cent, 'of - the children Kave to go  through a grade more than once; Camden, N.J., sends 30 per cent, of her  children through her grades twice.  This means that her schools cost her  30 per cent, more than thev ought  to.  In the average city only 15" per cent,  of the children are repeaters.  Attendance at school is another test.  There are very few cities in which as  many as three-fourths of the children  go to school three-fourths of the time.  In fifty American* cities, Mr. Ayres  says, it was found that the schools of  35 cities were improving and of 15  cities were going backward.  Many schools were found that were  crowded in the low grades and contained few pupils in the upper grades.  In these schools many repeaters were  found in the lower grades, which  choked admission  to  the  s~nool.  Mr. Ayres says.it is wrong to blame  school inefficiency to foreigners. He  says that his figures show that, the  presence of a large foreign element always goes with a high efficiency.  ***>td<<i*'>,*.i*.������������; t-i-i-���������',  The Methodist Brother- I  hood at Work by  THE BlUTlSTf FLAG,  (Toronto Mall and Empire.)

A new movement which aims at the  establishment of a Methodist brotherhood throughout the British Empire  was launched here on Saturday by Sir  Robert Perks, Bart., M. P., contractor,  civil engineer and financier, th������ founder of the Methodist Twentieth Century Million Guineas Fund and' of the  great palatial central home for Methodism on the site of the Westminster  Aquarium, and the chief promoter of  tlie' latest scheme for the construction  of the Georgian Bay Caual.   .  The versatility of Sir Robert's mind  is shown by his capacity,- to carry  through successfully a Brazil or Argentine railway or harbor scheme and  a great religious movement which  made a million golden guineas to fairly jump from the pockets of tho people  into tho coffers of Methodism.  Sir Robert's latest scheme was explained with great completeness at a  gathering of Methodist minifttors and  laymen which met him by invitation  at a luncheon at tlie Windsor Hotel on  Saturday.  Sir Robert, who was supported at  tho principal table by tho Rev. Dr.'  Young, Rov. Principal Shaw, Rev. Mr.  Timbcrlake, president of tho Methodist Conference; Rev. J. Richardson,  Mr. J. H. Good win,-(Mr. "J. W. Knox  and Mr. A. O. Darwon, unfolded his  scheme iu an able Bpecoh. In its moro  ideal aspect it is n co-oporativo movement making for international peace  and industrial concord, tho promotion  of temperance;, the protection of women  nnd tho humuncr treatment of native  races in tho wild portions of tho world,  hut ou its moro immediately practical  aide it has for its purpose an immigration project which would form a moi-t  important' auxiliary to. the existing  ngonoics that havo boon established  hy tho Canadian Government in the  Mother Coantry. On thin side of tho  Atlantio il moans the "receiving iu a  healthful and brothorly spirit of emigrants of tho Methodist faith from  Great Britain, horning* thom to bocuvo  positions nnd to establish a congenial  homo life. On tho other aide it means  tho encouvngcmcul of emigrants of a  deslrnblo character, persona of good  reputation, whoso nnteoodouts would  be vouched, for nnd who would ho  physically   and mcutally   fit for Cana  dian life. The scheme was received  with obvious favor by the speakers  who followed Sir Robert, and, waa endorsed hy the audience on a show o'f  hands.  r  ELASTICITY OF METHODISM.  In explaining his scheme Sir Robert  observed it had been his good fortune in  the past few days to address audiences  of a divers.������ character: A" few days ago  he had to speak to^a company of politicians concerned in a great industrial enterprise which' must iii a very practical  way affect the-fortunes of the-Domiuiou  in years to come; and on the previous  day he was asked to speak at Toronto,  on a subject which was a somewhat perplexing one , to explain to a Canadian  audience���������the relation of Liberalism in.  England to" the colonics and moro particularly to tho Dominion. At both these  gatherings ho felt he must tread very  warily and be on his best behavior, but  upon the present occasion, speaking tc a  company of Methodist 'preachers and  laymen on a subject that appealed to  Methodists ho felt moro at homo, and  could discuss it with greater freedom.  It might bo asked, said Sir Robert,  what business tho Methodist Church had  to concern itself with political and in-  dustiial problems, but ho would reply  that it had been tho glory of tho Methodist Church far and near, at hom������* and  beyond tho eons, since tho days of Wesley to our own timo, that it w**a marked hy a glorious irregularity aad mar  vollous elacticity. Wcsloy himself, in  addition to'establishing dispensaries, had  set up an industrial establishment, the  profits of which wero portly shared by  tho employees. ���������*  ."Tha timo has now come," added Sir  Robert, "whon tho Methodists throughout tho world should utilize thoir bond  of conncctional uuity���������that mysterious  fraternity of spirit which binds us liko  somo poworful religious freemasonry for  advancing tlio ..interests of Methodist  peoplo'throughout tho world."  Tho Methodist Church, ho wont on to  say, stood second numerically to tho  Church of England, tho mother church,  yet it had no endowments or social advantages���������no adventatious aids of any  kind, in proof of. which ho mentioned  they had hut one peer in tho House of  Lord***. A. great brotherhood of Methodists would, Sir Robert said, bo ablo  lo bring a poworful influonco to boor  on statesmen <n dealing with some of  tho humanitar.an ond national ���������questions that confronted,un. It would bo n  grent factor iu making for international  peace and concord hi tlio relations between employers and employed.  Sir Robert dwelt at great length on  tho immigration  aspect of his scheme.  'COBNS CURED  ^������s-i������ *herr- *" * ��������� ^dr& ip- 24.

Last year twelve thousand Methodists ���������  left England for Canada, and of that  number he felt sure that eight thousand  had no definite.or certain idea of what  they were going* to do when they came  here. What he proposed in this direction  was to organize immigration so that it  would bo comparatively easy for their  own peoplo, to got- employment when  they came here. This they would do by  the" establishment of register of Methodists who emigrated. By this means  they would be brought iu contact with  employers who were in need of workmen. He hoped those present would form  themselves into a committee that would  establish in Montreal one of the open-  ing centres of tho brotherhood. Given  the initial start, and the hand of gootl  fellowship and welcome among their own  people, Methodists would be sure to succeed when they came to Canada, they  did not drink, at all events to excess,  and did not as a rule smoke or put their  money on races. The Methodist organization might be relied upon not to send  to Canada persons who were undesirables. ,- ���������  ,*,. ^ .. .������������������..������������������������������������ ^ ���������������������������������������������-������������������..���������... ., ������  j.ue -pCia������lu*2 receiveu corui***-,'. i&u'uorse-  ment from tho Rev.

After a show of hands had been taken iu favor of the scheme, Sir Kobert  said that in July nest ho would let the  Methodist Conference in London know  how heartily the brotherhood scheme  has been supported in Montreal. It  would take some time to get the details  in shape, but he hoped the organization  would be in full operation when the Central Methodist premises at Westminster  were completed in 1911.

There  may be storm and upheaval around, but  there mast be peace;within for the soul  to thrive. But anxiety is the reverse  of peace.

Another way for  ,who prefer to drink their food,  often the case during convales  is  to  heat an  egg  very  light.  Some people contend, says The Bos-  ������ ton "Cooking School Magazine, that  Ef an QS" Is &n. 6gg. So it is. But to  H aseerjtuin'-it-j.^true value, tal;3 a fresh-  M laid^egg, weigh, it first, then "weigh a  wm cold-storage, or, as we say, a "store  Kegg/*��������� and note the result.   The  difference in weight is an illustration of  ���������a  the difference in food value. -  &*     Let us  take  a  fresh  egg,  and  see  ft how  many   difference   practical" uses  I1 we ca"n put it to, and first of all in a  **, medical "way. To the white of an  \ egg, shaken in half a glass of cold  ���������y water until light and -loamy, add the  Ey juice of half a lemon, fill the glass  K with water, sweeten to taste and you  3i have a delightfully refreshing drink  ���������t* known as aud called "albumen water."  5 There is nothing better, though not  generally known, than the white of  .an egg for burns. You simply separ-  m ate the white and yolk, and put the  E w'aite on the -scald or burn. Should  m th������ burn be on the fingers, wrap each  g/ one,'separately, with white of egg and  ~~ old linen. The white of egg forms a  coating on the burnt skin, at excludes  the air, and thus stops the dreadful  pain.  The white oi one egg, beaten light,  then mixed with the juice of half a  lemon, without sugar, will relieve a  cough and hoarseness.  } White of ess is ai> excellent remedy  in extreme cases of -bowel trouble, especially dysentary. B-eat it fairly  light, with Or without a little powdered  sugar (always using a "pinch of salt),  arid take it in one or-two swallows.  It tends to' lessen inflannnation by  forming ,���������a transient coating to the  intestines; so that mother nature may  proceed on her way to health again.  This jis food as well as medicine,  -and -even a child may be given many  doses in a day.  When th* 3d, a raw egg is most excellent,  particularly  when  the   appetite  ds   poor.   Have   the    egg    cold*  break the shall. and drop gently into  a small glass tumbler.   When ready  to take, prick the yolk with the pOfdat  oi   a 'clean  needle,   and  swallow    Jt  quickly.   If you use '��������� *iue,' put a teaspoonful in -the glass first, then the  egg, and take in one mouthful.   You  may think this impossible at first, but  it iB easy enough after a few attempts.  Always close the mouth as soon as  the -egg is" in it, throw the head bsdk,  ��������� and it is all over.   When putting up  I)   jellies, 'and the tumbler lid.* are old,  cut round pieces of paper, larger than  14  the  glasses of  course,  moisten these  thoroughly   with   unbeaten   white   of  egg,, and fit over the top.   Tie with  string,  and,  when  dry,  sponge    the  T-aper with  a little cold wator. und  ���������you'have'1 an air-tight cover stiff as  parchment    It will last for years/  In makh-g - a fruit pie, brush the  lower  crUat with  unbeaten white  of  egg, to prevent the juice from making  it soft, as is often the case.  To prepare an egg for an invalid,  Eut it in boil ing water.   Set it on the  ack  of  the  rango for ten minute-*,  then open  into  a hot egg-cup,  and  " ���������  serve  those  as is  cene,  put it in a pretty cup, t***d fill the cup  with beef tea, mutton broth,  or hot  milk,   seasoning   to   i- dividual  taste.

A. P.  have beenUess than 4he .British displacements."   . >  The Dreadnought, with her superior  speed and her tremendous battery power,  rendered every German battleship obsolete. There was nothing for Germany to  do, if "she desired to become a great  noval power, but to spend the major part  of her naval appropriation upon the construction of Dreadnoughts���������a, fleet of  them,' if the necessity or the opportunity  came, might destroy the British first  line of defence, and the second line of  obsolete types would then be at the  inerey of the Germans. But Lord Charles  Bcresford when he says that "we have  told other nations, pailiculorly a neighboring nation, that that ship [the Dreadnought] eould sink the whole of her  fleet" seems to have forgotten that it  was Count von Revenelow himself who  declared that the Dreadnought was powerful enough to smash the German line  of battle. It was that specialist who  gave the greatest publicity to the superiority of-the new type of warship.  As to what the British admiral terms  advertising, it is not to he gainsaid that  the German, the French, the American  and the Japanese, navy departments  understood thoroughly the great advance  made by the Dreadnought before she  was commissioned, and began to make  their plans to improve upon her without  delay.. At the same time it must be  admitted that the exultation of the British popular journal4* over the 'now ship  was very helpful to expansionists  over the world.  ������ VrkV.i ������...

The custom *������������ ���������extorting dowries has  grown into tlte fabric of the social life,  and is a standing disgrace to the Bengali community which has no justification to plead or apology to offer.    The  practice has now assumed alarming proportions  of   parents  of   boys  extorting  costly dowries as a condition of marrying "their sons. The marriage of a daughter among Bengalis has become an expensive affair, and the amount in casli  demanded by the father or guardian of  the boy, and paid by the father or guardian of the bride, varies with the educational ^ attainments  of the bridegroom.

(N. Y.

The   latjber   iu   an    artiele-  upon the navy of Germany in  Cassier's  Magazine for November, 1008, observed:  - "England mad*" her great naval-political, mistake in building the Nelsons and  Dreadnoughts;<ii was,'indeed, a political, and not a business error.  Probably  Germany would not have gone over to  the  present principle  of the individual  value of ships if England had not pu*"  the Dreadnought on the stocks.   To us,  the 'Chauvinists    and    Agitators,'    the  ���������Dreadnought  was  extremely    welcome,  liko the Lord Nelson before her;  for in  order to support our demands for larger  ships we had to place before the nation  a comparison of our ships with those of  foreign navies.   If England had not built  those types, possibly  in the course of  time tho German ships would have  increased a thousand tons, but would still  ST. JOHN OF KANSAS BLED.  Easy Prey to a Sharper.  John p. St. John, former Governor of  Kansas, won the brand of the "easy  mark" yesterday when he "fell" for the  game of confidence man on the Rock Island train between Wichita and Topcka.  As a result lie is .-**40 poorer in real perfectly good money, and much richer in  actual experience.  Mr. St. John was seated in the chair  car watching the landscape when a much  perturbed and bailess man entered.  The hatiess man dropped into a scat  beside the Governor.  "I wns told," he said, "that I eould  buy a money order on the train. Now  I find that I cannot. I don't know what  I am going to do. I must send this  money to,my sister, and I have only a  big bunch of small bills. It won't do to  put them in an envelope."  Gov. St. John rose to the bait just as  if he had never braved the* dangers of  such great cities aa Topeka or Wichita.  "I can'let you have two twenties," be  said.  The offer was accepted. Mr. St. John  produced the two twenties and the  stranger handed over a roll in return.'  Seeing that he was dealing with a  Etranger Mr. St. Joins*, carefully counted  the contents of the *ro"Jl. He found that  it contained seven $1 bills aatl one $5  bill.  "You have made a mistake," he said.  "Th'ere is not enough money Hiere."  The stranger, who in the meantime  had placed the l*wo twenties in an envelope and sealed it, was all apologies.  "That's a joke on "isy wife," he explained. "She g*rve 'me that roll and told  me that there was $40 in it. Here, you  just hold this envelope -w'hile I go back  and get the resfrof tlte 'money."  The Govemrur "put the envelope in his  pocket and resumed 'his study of the  landscape. Finally be bethought him  tliat the stranger had never come back.  Then Mr. St. John opened the envelope.  It contained - only two pieces of tissue  paper.���������St. "Louis Globe-Democrat.  wm:  "firV  JAIm  't^r^Kf^S'  y  &   ��������� '      $*fl  ������������������ '������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������>>������������������������������������������**��������� >,������**>������������������>���������>>������������������������������������������������������������������*���������>'������������������������������������ ������������������������*���������������>���������������������  LIFE'S BRIGHT AND DARK SIDES SHOWN IN  THE BOWERY BREAD UNE.  .       ,       *     .1  t *  4-;;}S#*������������������������***t *'* + **>**������������������* **���������'������***��������� ������-*-���������'���������" *���������> fr^aaafr^^ft^ r a aa ft aa a-ffi.A *tft  ���������*"*���������*���������������������������������*���������������������������������  MRS. tAr-T, WEARING HER   MEWE8T  HAT.
