Tho ambition of this olub is a high and  nook* ono; among the lessor objects for  whioh it has devoted its talents boing in  general tbe promotion of any and overy  idea whioh shall tond to make Oreston  tho standard oity of British Colombia,  ���������  t  significance of the inner workings of the  society'may be gleaned from the title of  the chief officer, His Most Worihipful  the Grand Lord High Executioner.

Healths were drunk in clear  cold water, and the , accompanying  speeches, to the observer^'were wholly  characterized by the most cheerful optimism for the future succesaand triumph  of the olub.  The musical talont of the club then  displayed itself and gradually the soul-  inspiring notes of Mendelsohn and Beethoven gave way to the light fantastic music of the dance. At a late hour the  members repaired to the rooms, after  having spent the most pleasant evening  of social intercourse since Ihe organization of the club.

Tho first notification that yonng Elliott had of this outrage was when he  found the tail hanging to the stable door  where he lcopt his colt, on Victoria Avon*  ue, about 10 o'olook the same evening.  Suspicion at i, onee pointed to young  Joseph Quaife, aB young Elliott and  Quaife, a few days before this, had had  a bet on the weight of this same colt.  Elliott hot,that tho animal would weigh  over COOlbs. The animal was consequently weighed and brought down the scale  at 5291b8., and as they had each bet a  dollnv on the weight of the colt, young  Qualfo lost,Mb money. Now young Elliott says that Quaife bamo to him the  day nftar this betting was dono and  asked to havo his dollar back, and when  Elliott refused to pay it over to him,  young Quaife stated tbat bo would mako  tho colt woigh loss.  Inviowof theso farts,*whon Elliott  toucid that his colt was minus his tail,  hoabouco notified Prov. Ooustablo E.  i������Tonson, who obtained a warrant for  young Qaaifo's arrest from J. K. Johnson, last Sunday morning,   It was thon I  found that youug Qutilfo had loft town,  and Constable Jensen left on Monday  for Bonnors Eorry in searoh of hiB man.  In the moantimo Stuart Graham, thu  spools! oonstablo, acting in tho ahuonco  of Oonstablo Jouson, managed to looato  yonng Qualfo at tho Yale-Colombia flaw  I mill, near Croston, and drovo out on'  Monday evening and brought tho md  baok to Crouton and placed him in sufo  kooplng.    On Monday afternoon tho  acenfied appeared before Maj-lHtroto Jonn-  son and was remanded for two days, in  ardor to givo both the prosecution and  tho dofotioo timo to collect thoir wit-  nossoa.

Young Joo Qualfo was how  ovor given somo good advice by the court  uf tor tho formal dlviwissal of tho mho.  In^the "Nelson Miner," published in  Nsfgon on Aprileth^lSSSjAth^'following  article appears: *    " *  "Your correspondent took a trip1 over  to Goat River the other day and halted  for a short while at Willow Grove, the  ranch nnd residence of Fred. G. Little,  late superintendent, of the dyking company.   After luncheon he showed mo  over his place and I must own that what  I saw surprised me���������was convincing evidence of what a man can do who goes  ahead as if he meant it.., Mr. Little has  been on his ranch for about * two years,  and in that short time has transformed  the wilderness into a rose garden, metaphorically speaking.   He has erected a  comfortablo and commodious dwelling  house, the interior of whioh, more especially his own 'den,' is fitted up in  most  gorgeous style.     The  walls are  studded with trophies of the chase, weapons and nick-nacks, while the carpet is  strewn with the Bkins of animals (moro  or lesB rare) indegenonB to Kootenay. Ho  has a largo stable and granary, a root-  houBO of large dimensions, hennery, hog  ponn, duck pons, and everything necessary and handy.   A creek flows through  tho ranch, whioh ho has utilized by having it run so that all the animals in tho  different houses and enclosures oan take  advantage of it.   He has had Bot oat for  some time apple trees by tho score and  as many ..varieties, pear trees from the  Eastern States as well as from tits Pacific slope, plums in endless*, variety and  walnuts. .Currant and gooseberry bush-  es he.has now..ready to set,, out, besides  other kindst. pf berry'bushes-'coming in.  Besides alf these he cultivates the usual  etandby crops to perfection, potatoes,  turnips, beets, parsnips, oats, wheat, etc.  We walked back to his place Where a  splendid view was obtained ot Goat River, coming rushing along at eight miles  an hour. What a great amount of power is here, which will be utilized some  time���������perhaps very, soon, for if the  <jrows' Nest railroad ,over comes this  w.y, ib will, go through Mr. Little's  ranch. "With the surrounding country  teeming with mineralT-copper, silver  and gold ore, with thousands of acres, I  might say hundred's or thousands of  acreB, of land surrounding it, the quality of which is not surpassed, under the  sun, with timber lands all round and in  oIobo proximity and last but by no means  least, with the power that oonld bo obtained from the swift rushing Goat River, this would bo au ideal place.  "Mr. Little's neighbour is Mr. Dow  on tbe ouo side and Mr. John Arrow-  smith on tho othor, both of whom bave  very good ranches. Besides these thero  are numerous others and it is reported  that somo Swodes havo stoked off farms  close bv, That olass of settlors as a rale  aro thrifty uud get along well even amid  hardships, but where thoy havo located  there is nothing to deter them frommak-.  ing a good showing in a very short tiir.ey  Last Friday evening Mrs. Chafe. Mooro  entertained ^'number of] friends at her  pre&ty hom*"v - At this most enjoyable  evening, there were various,amusing  games, played and songs were interspersed during tiie evening by Mrs. R. O'B.  FitzGerald and Messrs. Skinner, Eitz-  Gerald and Moore, after which refreshments weire served and the spacious  drawing room was cleared and dancing  was indulged in. Those present on this  occasion were Mr. and Mrs. FitzGerald,  Mr. and Mr*. R. J. Long,"Mr. and Mrs. ���������  W. K. Brown, Mr. and ���������Mrs. Birt, Mr.  and Mrs. J.

A moBfc peculiar feature about Mrs.  Moore's ovenin&s is the fast that there is  not a dull moment. It is one vortex of  good entertainment throughput the  evening. Theso ploasant evenings given  by Mrs. Moore will long remain groon  in the memory of her inany gnests.

Every one admits that using  egg in coffee makes a clear, sparkling  beverage. When egg is used, the white  should be mixed with the coffee in the  coffee pot; add cold water, boil two  minutes, and proceed as in plain coffee.  A little more coffee is required when  egg is used., as the albumen coats, over  the particles of coffee, and some of the  strength as well as the flavor ofthe coffee is kept in. XX:X  When one enters a house where coffee  is being made he remarks: "How good  the coffee smells!'* We all like the  aroma of-good coffee, but when this de-*  lightful odor is allowed to be expelled,  the coffee lacks just that natiich in flavor.  If the coffee pot spout has not a cover  stuff it with paper to keep the aroma  in. Tannin is the principal in both tea  and coffee which is harmful. This is extracted by long boiling or by allbwing-  it to stand too long on the grounds.  When the thrifty housekeeper wishes  to save the leftover coffee should he  turned off the grounds into an earthen  bowl and kept covered-Alt is much bet-  ' ter to learn about how much coffee will  be required, and to niakc just the  amount than to have coffee left to warm,  over.  The old fashioned method was to set  [ away the tea and coffee pot without being emptied or washed. Too often,'to  be warmed over for the next meal, adding more tea or coffee with additional  water. We cannot be too thankful that  cooking schools and scientific research  have relegated such notions to the dark  ages. The harmfulness of coffee depends  largely upon the method of making cofr  fee a wholesome bei;erage is to keep the  tannin from being extracted.   .������������������������������-   tlu  "MARY  JANE"   DRESS  FOR THE YOUNG  QIRL.

No rate pjr word is specified in the contract, but it is genetully  estimated that Co-mniander Peaty is receiving $i.i3 cash for each word that ho  wrties for Hampton's Magazine, Benj.  B. Hampton, editor of the magazine,  niakes this statement :  **lf you have a desire to cstituiite the  Peary with his Kor.th Pole story, you  ivould be safer in plaeihg it at $-2.50 per  word than *$l.'20. Wo 'have bought only  Aiiiericart and Canadian nia^ii/.iuviiy lit j,  and Stokes' book rights covin- only -those,  --countries' That leaves all the foreign  rights to sell. When they are flgitred  up,, the totals should ivnKuuit to .-������!i().'i?()t'io.:  or even $150,000.  Just why Co.mniandev Peaiy received  such an exceptional rate fov his stoi-y-i*  oxplaini.*d by tin* eager-competition for it  on the part of neafiy all the important  publishing houses in the world. Realizing the supreme importance oi this, the  most woiiderful and la������t of the earth's  hei'o-storit's, they engaged in a bidding  whioh made figure* rise nu'veurhil'y.  They knew, of course, that this story  had not���������-like most of the world ro-  iii'aiK'*.-s~-be<������n told before. It was ,Mie ���������  most extraordinary ami intovesting  story of fact to be told for the first,  and 'last,, time.  It is interesting to compare the" price  paid Commander Peary with the rates  enjoyed by the top-notch writers of the  ���������world. ' -- ,   A VA...'-  Kx-President lioosevelfcyveceiyed for  his Africau hunting stoi-ios a dollar a  \yord. ARudysird AKipling is supposed to  receive the highest;-prices paid aaty author of fittion. For" the English and  American serial rights of "Kim" he received $25,000. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle  hit one of the highest marks when he  received sixty cents a word /for the American serial rights of his ylater "Sher-  iockHolmes" stories. This compares  amusingly with tlie rate of $2 per thousand woods'���������or one-fifth of a cent a  word���������-received for his first arid generally  considered-best, stories.  High prices   for  literaryAy work   began  practically with the great success of Sir  Walter Scott   The compensation for. his  "Life  of Boi������aT>art������" ayovagc-a $135  for j  each day of work spent upon it. [  A ���������'���������Thackeray .'..was offered $1,000 for j  "Henry Esmond," and he jumped at the  proposition. Both.

No author, however, in all  the history of literature lias ever nude  so much money for each'actual' word in a  literary product as will Commandc*  Peary.  -'..���������'  The eagerness of publishers for Commander Peary's forthcoming sturv, and  tho exceptional price 'paid, mark one  thing signally. Tnis is a full1 appreciation of this man's work in his own age.  One cannot help comparing the great  price paid for this sttfry with the -small  sums for whioh many of the world's  masterpieces were sold.  Dr. Johnson, it will ho remerefbered,  wrote his immortal "Raasolas" to 'pay  the funeral'expenses of his grandmother.  Milton sold his "Paradiac Lost" t:i it  bookseller for $25. Poo's "llnvc-n"  brought him tho grateful sum of .$]*'.  If therto hooks wero written to-dny woul.1  they bring as high, a price as Oonimiindei-  Peary's story? Although'they would  unquestionably net thoir authors mors  than they did during their lifetime, tliey  would hardly bring this record prico.' For  they i wero works of iihiigination.

Mrs. M . E.

I inhaled its halsami^  fumes every hour pi' two and am now  free from any trace of cold, bronchitis  and catarrh. I cany go out in all kinds  of weather and don't take cold."

"Norine is trying her best to look  happy," he thought, "but sJie is secretly  worrying,over the heavy cold poor Joe  contracted on the sight he brought her  borne, risking has own life to save hers.  He kept up until he heard my voice, and  knew assistance was at* hand; then he  knew no more until he opened his eyes  and found himself safe in the warm little sitting-room of our cottage. % Hia  first; though* on returning to consciousness W9S* of Norine. *<Is she safe?' he  whispered, in awful terror. I shall never  foswet the joy that overspread bif*  white, anxious face when I answered,  *Yes, my'lad, and she owes her life to  you.' ���������"  Norine's usually voluble tongue waa  afleut for the firat time as they walked  ���������aji������>n������r the snowy road iBomewisrd. <in>-  gether.    "  There was nothing to warn him that  the girl by has side; whom he loved better by far than'the apple of his eye, waa  keeping her first secret from him.  Clifford Carlisle*had exacted a promise- from her that she would not mention  to her grandfather, or indeed any one  else, that they had met that afternoon,  or intended seeing each other the following day. Norine was so much of a  child, bo unsophisticated iu the ways of  tbe world, that she quite believed it  the jolly lark that he represented it to  be���������to become well acquainted, and then  spring tliat fact upon her old grandparents, who always declared most era-  politically' that she should never know  any young man but Joe.  "It would ber the richest kind of a  joke," .Carlisler" * declared, gayly, and,-  looking-at th������ matter, in the ligh^ in  which life pictured it so laughingly to  her, it was no wonder artless little Norine fell,into rthe trap set so cunningly  for bear ^thoughtless, unwary' feet.  Sve*t ihe old ^iuudiuu.ther"><oticcd lisw  preoccupied Norine was during the fru;.  gal evening meal.

"Look like?" repeated Daniel,  thouglrtfully; "that ia just what I have  been trying to settle in. my own mind  ever since I laid eyes on him to-day,  aud, by gracious, it just comes to m*  now.

More'n likely he's some wealthy man go-  in' along with the rest to invest in the  mine. All the interest I take iu him is  to keep him away from Norine."  "What nonsense, Daniel, to imagine  that he has given/one thought to our  Norine. Great gentlemen fall in love  with their own kind."  "Not alius, Betsy," he muttered,  thoughtfully.   "Not alius."      ,  Then their conversation drifted around  to Joe (as it always did' after Norine  had left them for the night) and the  future���������advising with each other as to  when they should tell their darling' of  the young man's devoted, patient love  for her, and the hope he had long since  confided tO^bem, that one day he hoped  to make little Norine his bride, if he  could win the treasure of her love, aud  they were willing that it should be so.

All the next morning Norine was so  absent-minded that Grandma Gordon  looked at her more than once, wondering what had come over the girl,  and what she could be thinking about.  Ah! how troubled she would have been  had. she but known. '     ,A  To Norine, the hours aever seemed to  drag so slowly "along as they did on  this particular day.  They crept along leaden-footed. Noon  came at last; then slowly the^red sunshine drifted athwart the western window.  "Norine," exclaimed her grandmother,  starting up from her knitting, "I had  no idea it was so late. It is time for  you to go to fetch your grandpa, my  dear." "  . (  The girl turned away quickly, that  the dear old eyes might not discern the  sudden  flush that arose to her face.  Very quietly Norine donned her red  hood and jacket, and fairly flew from  the house. For the first time in her young  life she had forgotten to kiss her dear  old grandma good-by.  With palpitating heart and winged  feet Norine flew swiftly to the trysting  place. As she turned the bend in the  road she saw him pacing restlessly up  and down under the leafless branches of  the old sycamore tree, now handsome  he looked in his great seal overcoat and  the seal cap resting so jauntily on his  crisp, dark curling hair. No wonder  little Norine's heart beat tumultously as she beheld him. There were few  girlish hearts that handsome Clifford  Carlisle could not win if he chose to  take the trouble to do  so.    -���������  Hey caught* sight of Norine quite as  soon as she saw him, and hastened forward to meet her, holding out both cf  bis hands to her.  "How am I to ever thank you for  coming to keep the appointment, Norine ?" he said, "I had been fearing that  you regretted promising to come, and,  ahl I was so downhearted oyer it, for  I could not bear the thought-of never  seeing you again.5 -��������� .. :  He pretended iiott toynotie^^eygiii's  confusion or the Tblush tha^niantled  her pretty .cheek, talking on," and so  gayly, that by degrees she gained her  usual icomposure, and the power of voluble speech. -  He did not ask about her history, believing tfiere was nothing to tell, and in-  tdeed., there was hot, for Norine. knew  nothing of her own strange story.--It  had met as yet been told to her,, to  idarken her youthful spirits and happi-  31665. i  It had been known only, to javfew-peo-  ���������ple ;in Hadley, and, stronge to ������������,y, those  few had left the village years Before, or  Had died; thus there was no'one save  her grand parents and Joe who knew  pended almost solely upon these,influene  that Norine was in any way related to  the old- recluse who lived in tho great  stono house at the end of .the village.  The truth had been unfolded to Joa  when he had asked for Norine's' hand,  but he was bound by a solemn promise  mot yto divulge it; tb Norine.  /"Iydoh't want Athe, child's head/turned  vwith hopes that she will inherit the Bar*  rison wealth,":her grandfather had told  'her, "forAI know she will bo cut off  without a cent;: she will not bo diaap-  {minted if she is not expecting it, bless  lery poor; little .'.heart, and aho will Hva  her life through without knowing,what  slip misflcd, and;-he: the hcttci* and hap-  Sfcr for having the truth withheld from  er.":yy .

"Oh, would you do anything so horrible as that?" she gasped.  "Why not ?" he replied, in a voice that  sounded as though it was half a sob.  "What has a man to iive for if he fails  to win the girl he loves?"  "Do you care for me so very much?"  cried Norine, wringing her little hands  in anguish. "You have seen me only  three times."  "Love is horn in an instant; it is not  a paint of slow growth," he answered.  "You ought to know at this moment if  you love me."  He waited a moment for the words to  take effect; then he went on softly:  "If your heart has gone out to me,  you have thought of me constantly  since last we met; you have dreamed of  me by night; you have counted the  hours���������ay,1 the moments, until we should  meet again. Have you done that, Norine?"  "Yes," faltered the girl, trembling  like one of the dying leaves above her  head.  He went on in words as eloquent as  they were beautiful to her untutored  ears:'  "Then it is as it should be, Norine;  our love is mutual. It is cruel to ask  you to linger ��������� so long in the bitter cold  talink to me, but no other/opportunity  is offered me. I fear if I should go to  the cottage and ask to see you, that  boon would be denied me.

"So ill and miserable was I for nearly  two years," writes Mrs. J. E. Nimmo,  of St. Annes Bay, "I began to look upon  my life and its future as a sort'of living  death. I tired so easily I could not go  anywhere. Even the thought of slight  exertion made my heart flutter and excited me to trembling. Then came the  misery of the long nights, with their  dreads and forebodings. Medicines and  tonics seemed fruitless to help me. Nothing did me any good till I used Ferrozone. At first I think Ferrozone must  have made my blood richer and redder.  My ears began to lose their thin, waxy  look which had been a sign to everybody  that I was sick. My weight increased  steadily���������I got stronger, and at last began to sleep better and become less  nervous. Look at me now���������a stronger,  heartier, more vigorous energetic woman  you can't find."

"Indeed you are mistaken," she declared, earnestly. "Joe has no such  thought. We are only friends���������friends  from childhood up."  He laughed a little sinister laugh.  "I wonder that you can really believe  that," he said, slowly, adding: "I ain  sure he would have been searching for  you hy tbis time, if he had not been  confined to his bed by the severe cold  you told me about."  "Joe is sick in bed, hut I have been  expecting to see him pass every moment,  for he is obliged to go on a long journey  to-night, ill as he is." z     z     zb  "It must'be a very important matter  that would cause him to get out of a  (sick bed ou such a night as this is destined, by ail appearances, to be," lie declared.  'It is important," replied Norine, and,  scarcely knowing just hqw. it had happened, she found herself unfolding to  the handsome stranger the confidential  mission that was to be kept such a vital  secret���������that he was to have a large  sum of money about him to take to the  officers of the Great Bear Mine, to pay  off the miners.  "Are they aot afraid to trust this fellow with so great a aum?" he queried,  adding in the next Breath: "How much  did you say he was- to take?"  "No one would fear to trust ever*, life  itself to Joe Brainard; he is as honest  aa the-sun. You must know how he is  trusted, when ixe is the only one whom  they will' permit to .take the thirty  thousand in cash to the mine."

(By Molly Crewe, in The Kindergarten  Review.)  I want to put in a plea for the little  child, whose Christmas joy will soon  Warm the great world's heart anew to  its deepest glow of love and tenderness.  In the interests of this dear little child  and the approaching Christmas, I have  been making a bit of practical child-  study, my own small daughter being the  subject thereof.  Little Elizabeth is over two years  old, and at the time of this writing  she is at home alone with me in the  morning.  Now, what plays does she choose, or  choose oftenest without suggestion  from, anyone else, when playing alone  at home? This is what interests me;  and, sitting at my sewing, I like to  observe my little one living out her  impressions of life in her play.  In her baby mind her play, is not  play at all, but work; for many times  she will look up 6eri0uely from it and  remark, "I busy, Mamma," - thus seeking recognition as ������, person of usefulness and importance.  Part of Elizabeth's morning play always centres around vrhat shs calls  her. "baby broom"���������a popcorn stalk  with a husk at oue end. With " this  proceeds to "fweep" the floor and the  rugs, industriously poking into the corners: and diving, under the, bed;' as. she  h&s seen me do.  When this amusement palls,-she knows  where     another    delightful    .plaything  liangs on a low wall. It is nothing- but  an old damp elbth, yet my wee housemaid-seizes-it, with joy,  and  'with it  6crubs the window sills or floor,    back  and forth, a half-hour at a time, until  rag and littlo hands are grimy   enough.  During the afternoon, little Elizabeth  is kept cut of doors as long as '   tho  sunshine lasts.  I have  been  interested  in noticing what most attracts the   attention of this little girl, aa her hand  in mine, wo travel down the oity street-  Is she drawn to the gay and "beautiful  costumes of the elegant ladieB we meetP  No she is utterly indifferent to these:  The shop windows aro very alluring as  we pass on;  yet the  baby  eyes  never  seem to sea tho  rainbow. show of dry,  goods, not oven tho beautiful baby, wear.,  Little Elizabeth is pleased, to boy sure,  witli the toy store window and its' display ; of dolls - and hobby horses, y; But  what iVthat pleasure to the ecstasy with  which she -stops, in front, of a hardware  store and utters the two words, "Sliub-  beuls,.

A  God said to man, "In tho sweat; of  thy face shalt thou oat broad," and  the' littlo child comcB into7 tho world  choorfully ready to acquiesce in tho God-  givou mandate. Alas,    how    studiously  down pieces of dough is those litiis  pauB* and clap them into the oven  with  the family   baking!  Also small baskets are in order���������set  the fancy, Indian, sweet-scented affairs  upstairs, hut market baskets of the base-  met type, small enough to hang comfortably on a baby arm. it is true, but  also big enough to carry to the store and  hold what the grocer boy forgot to bring  for the dinner.  Look around further in the basement  and you might find the wee-ast, daintiest, darlingest scrubbing brushes, just  right for window sills and doorsteps.  But there I perhaps I am too radical!  Get a mechanical calf instead, if you  wish���������but it will cost you more money,  and give the wee folk far less pleasure.  Last, but not least, before you leave  my Christmas fairyland, the basemen*  don't forget���������the shovel! For mercy's  sake don't try to find those "two-for-  a-cent" trumpery affairs that accompany sand pails and are smashed in a  twinkling. Get a good shovel; small,  of course, but substantial enough to  ehovel snow and coal with this winter, and t~������ garden with next summer.  Another thought: Are you old-  fashioned enough to do a little sewing at this happy time of the year, or  do you let the department store do  all your Christmasing for you? If  yu sew, go home,-sit down, and hem  with red tambour cotton a pair  of cheesecloth dusters. JLiet them  adorn a Christmas tree and they will  make a pair of baby eyes shine.  I know a little girl whos<5 Christmas gifts included jewelry, furs and  dells but who cast all these aside indifferently when her old grandmather  produced the gift which she had provided���������a little print work-apron with  strings to tie around the waist just  like the apron of a grown-up person.  If s pretty sweeping-cap, Mamma's in  miniature, were added, this gi������t would"  be complete.     *  The Froebel whom we all love, says:  "Come, let us live with oar children."  I want to add humbly to that world-  famed saying, "Come, let us work  with oar children." Thus only can we  live with thenu  born laborers.  for    all    children arc  HIS PAINS AND  ACHES ALL GONE  Dodd's    Kidney    Pills    Cured  Chas. N. Cyr's Rheumatism. .  Frae!

B. Henderson, Sec.-Treas.  The Building Committee siiow a very  satisfactory report. Extras y-have increased the cost of building, "but the debt  has bean greatly r- dnced. Besides the  $400.20 due on contr ict and extras, there  remains a mortgage of $500, whioh mortgage, the Ladies' Auxiliary have undertaken to cancel.  With so fine a structure completed and  now being furnished by the combined  assistance of the Ladies' Auxiliary and  the Girls' Guild, it behooves each one of  us to give of our time and possessions as  muoh financial and personal assistance  iib we can afford. By our united sup'  port of the church we nre doing not a  little towards the the welfare of our  town, apart from the condition of greater comfort to ourselves, of greater unity  and pleasure in our religious worship.  Tne ecolesiaBtical pear eloses upon us  with many ohaugos in our work. The  Sabbath Sohool has been regularly organized under Rev. T. G. McLeod and  is already doing good work. The Girls'  Guild, organized on January 25th, 1901),  has made a remarkable showing nnd  rendered valuable assistance toward the  ohurch completian. Wo trust that thoir  good work will continue. Tho board of  managers offer a word of praise and  thanks to the Ladies' Auxiliary, who  come to their assistance go nobly and ns-  isted in lowering tho debt. We trust  their labors for the coming yonr will ho  well reworded.  The "^treasurer's statement, though  mongro, shows that the contributors ore  keeping up to the standard.

Marshall in Dunnville Chronicle.)  Consumers of natural gas often complain about large bills and other disagreeable things chargeable to the above  product that a few words on the subject  of its use might not be out of place.  First we will take  the  BURNER.  There has been much useless talk on  tlus subject. The heat is in the gas, not  in the burner, and if a burner secures  the combustion of all the gas which  passes through it without producing  carbonic oxide gas and at the same time  placing the heat where it will be most  useful it has done all that can be done.  Talk about burners that burn large  quantities of air is all nonsensa. A cubic  foot of gas in complete combustion combines with a mixed quantity of air part  of the gas will be unburned or if there  is an excess of air combustion will be  imperfect and part of the gas will be  uuburnt.  'CHIMjNEX.  The amount of draft in chimneys differs, so that there can be no set rule  given here for adjusting the damper in  the pipe. If you find "water dripping  from the pipes you will know that condensation is going on in the flue and  that there is insufficient heat to carry  the burnt gas to the outside atmosphere and you will have imperfect combustion. Yoa must then open the damper ii* the pipe, sufficiently to allow good  circulation and the trouble will, .'.cease.  Great care should be taken in having  burners properly set and adjusted to  have as near as possible a perfect flame.  In imperfect combustion you are not  getting all the heat you should, and are  also paying for aud conducting through  tlte flue to the atmosphere gas producing for you.no results whatever and at  tho same time endangering your health,  destroying plants and tarnishing silverware, etc, by producing carbonic acid  gas,  and in many   cases sulphuric  acid  gas-  Too much care cannot be taken to  hayeythe inside of burners-and air mixers <*leanAa������d free from dust or other  collections, as it hinders the flow* of the  p?op4^ proportions of air aud gas to the  Game, producing incomplete combustion,  ���������"the production of which, from whatever cause, needlessly increases the cost  of gas bills.  One of the worst hindrances to complex* combustion is imperfect draft or  circulation to the atmosphere. The chimney should be straight, clean anil tight,  admitting no cold air in the flue or pipe  between the burner and the outside at-  inc sphere. For every atom of cold air  so admitted extra heat will be required  from the burner to the flue to insure  proper circulation of the poisonous products from the burner to the atmosphere, and as 1,000 cubic feet of natural  gis when burned will produce from 80  to 100 lbs. of water, which is allowed to  condense in chimney or the pipe will produce is very many cases sulphuric acid,  and in condensation will eat the mortar  out of the' chimneys, causing thetii to  leak, admitting cold air and requiring  an extra amount of heat from the burner to insure proper circulation. The better way would be to line the chimney  with tile or heavy iron pips, painted  with some acid resisting paint.-The flue  would then he practically, tight, and a  large amount of heat required to produce circulation in a leaky flue would  not he needed in a chimney .so lined,  consequently less gas would be required  to produce the needed results, -which in  many cases would mean a large saving  in gats bills.

I  have been accustomed all miy life to  lift great weight,  but one day I overdid it, and wrenched .my back badly.  Every " tendon and  muscle -was sore. To  stoop or %<*iul was  agony.

I urge its use  strongly as an invaluable liniment and  household cure for all minor ailments,  such as strains, sprains, swellings, neu-  Talgia, sciatica, lumbago, rheumatism  and muscular piin."

BRITISH   FARMS.      .  Results of a Year's Operation of the  Small   Holdings  Act.  It is ofiiciaiiy declared that the  small holdings act of 1908 has given a  great stimulus to the provision of  small holdings by private land owners direct. The result of the first  year's work for the country at l&Tge  since the act came into operation has  been that 23,285 applications have  been received by county councils for  373,601 acres* that 13,202 applications  have been approved provisionally  as suitable; that the estimated quan*  tity of land required far the suitable  applicants is 185,098 acres; that 21.417  acres have been purchased, and 10,071  acres leased; that the land acquired  will provide for about 1,500 of the applications; and that of 604 of them  were in. actual possession of their  holdings on December 31, 1908.  Out of the approved applicants  about 34 per cont. Avere ngriculturul  laborers. It is estimated that at the  end of September of this year not  less than 50,000 acres wns obtained,  but few of tho applicants desire to  purchase their holding*!. Out of  23.295 applications received during  the year only 629 or 2,7 por cent, expressed n. dcBirs to purchase. No  doubt considerable land hafr been  supplied by land owners direct, mainly through, the intervention of county  councils, stimulated by tho provisions  of the act.  During 1908 there were in Devon  and Cornwall 722 applications for  12,271 acres. The councils purchased  440 acres and leased 120 acres. In the  southwest of England there are large  areas of crown lands once under cultivation but now neglected that will  doubtless be brought back in the near  future to suitable and profitable husbandry by the hands of the people.���������  From Daily Consular and Trade Reports.

When steamers - first came into uso  very little attention was .bestowed upon  the consumption .of fuel. It was not  until the Cuimrd steamers- were started  crossing the Atlantic in 1840 that reliable records of fuel consumption began  to be kept systematically. The Britannia, one of the early Cunarders, used to  make the run from Liverpool to New  York in about 14 days on a coal consumption of about 4.7 pounds per indicated horse-power an hour.

Spurs are run to deep basements or to  shafts where the materials are loaded  into ������������rs, which aro hauled hjc electric-  locomotives to a disposal station on the  west bank of the Chicago Biver near  Madison street. .Here there is a shaft,  over which are the runways for two  electric trolley hoists, each operated by  a man Tiding on the .machine. When a  car is set at the bottom of the shaft,  the body is hoisted up and run out over  a hump scow moored alongside the station. The car body is' lowered and the  bottom released, discharging the con^  tents into the scow.

This  season, while gowns of the pastel shades  its well as the vivid colors are in style,  there are many more white and black  being made than has, been the case for  the last few winters. And the thin  black gowns are especially smart, so  varied in design and texture as to make  it easily possible for 'the woman who  prefers always to wear black to be able  to have an endless variety.  Voile de soie is a most popular material in the order of chiffon and mous-  seline de soie, which it closely resembles  in its light transparency, but, as its  name indicates, it is silky and more  lustrous. It is a most exquisite fabric,  and whether plan or embroidered,  works out well in any of the present  models in' afternoon or evening gowns,  although it is a material that seems far  better suited to summer than to winter  wear. There are many new fashions  in regard to the manner of > trimming  the voile de soie gowns. ^Velvet is a  charming contrast, and a broad- fold or  band of velvet or black velvet ribbon is  effective against the transparency of the  voile de soie, or silk veiling, as it is  , .sometimes termed. The tunic overskirt  finished with a band of velvet is far  more effective than when finished with  merely a hem* of .band of satin or silk.  Embroidery is also smart, while for the  ���������evening gown the embroidery on the ma-  terial is worked out in, a design that of  itself forms the border, and- not only  for the afternoon gown but'for the more  ���������elaborate modeMfor-the <threatre the  velvet finish for the moment is in the  highest favor. .  ^"--Theatre"Geft-ns Essentia!.

It can be cleaned times without  number, and can frequently be dye I 'liter a season of hard usage, and with l5*o  addition of a fresh yoke and perhaps a  net or chiffon tunic will be disguised to  look brand new.  In spite of the fact that so m my  styles of dress are worn at the mo-uent  there are some feiv rules that "can be  definitely laid down. For a young girl's  evening dress short sleeves���������that ���������".���������'. elbow" or three-quarter length���������are smarter, but Jong, collarless yokes are worn  unless unbecoming, when a boned collar  of transparent lace or net is permissible. The waist line is once more in normal or nearly normal place, and fulness  is noticeable in all skirts, long or short.  Light shades are worn altogether, white  being decidedly the favorite for a party  frock, * colored" ribbon or ribbon work  trimming being often introduced as relief.  While the nets and chiffons are most  fashionable for evening wear, still soft  silks are also widely popular, and where  economy must be considered and only a  small number of frocks can be had  the more serviceable textures should be  selected. In length the evening dress  should be no longer than the day frock,  save for the girl of seventeen or over,  who may be permitted a short train���������  that is, provided her hair is now up and  ribbons discarded. A low cut gown is  frequently worn nowadays the winter  before a girl makes her formal debut,  but the more conservative mothers still  insist that a Dutch neck is alone correct  until the debutante year.  PSYCHE  BOWS.  They're lovely.  They are dainty.  The bow is of tulle.  It is worn at the throat.  It is caught with a jeweled clasp. _  This clasp usually is more or less in  butterfly form.  Hence the name which indicates  Psyche or the soul.  An exquisite little affair is but a  string of tiny pearls bent into butterfly  form.   It costs $63.  Christmas is almost here again, and  soon from all parts of the country the  young people will be trooping home  from school and college for> their two  weeks of holidays. The rest of the winter may be'devoted'to the amusements  of the debutante and the young married  set, but during holiday time the scuool  girl reigns supreme. For her are ������j;ven  tho informal cotillions, the theatre parties and the gay luncheons, so tn.it during two weeks of unalloyed bliss she  may forget all the homesickness of the  first term and cease to worry about the  hard work that is in store for her during the coming session.  There will not be much time for dv������ ss-  making appointments when-the ^cbool  girl finally arrives, but she will in all  probability require a new eveniig gown  for the coming gayety, so that it a. ill  be necessary for her seamstress to bo interviewed, a model selected an.l :;, "lining  at any ratc,"ready to be"fitti**d fn*s wo-'  inent she arrives: and there should be- a  distinct understanding that this -frock  shall be finished within *v Mv daj-s'  time.

Nets of all kinds  are much in favor, while a sheer all over  lace of not too costly quality may be  worn by a girl who is to make her debut  in a few mouths' time.  Chiffon, silk mousseline and crystalline are also seen to a large extent. All  light, soft colors are popular, and often  pecially the different rose hues, are  pecially the diffecrnt rose hues, aro  worn by quite young girls. Yellow and  apple green are both attractive for simple evening dresses, but mauve and all  darker colors arc not smart.   ��������������������� in>m.M ���������������������>��������� t������<i*HH'H'MHMHl( f������������"  I   Best Stories of a Week.   |  a i a a a a^anA** tuimmtin *i*a'������r*> aeaa aaa ftava  "��������� w   *���������*��������� v ** ������ft������a*r jar***. jujh.auM .em.t* w  ���������������  *n  v   *   w w ������*-��������������� ������^ ~**��������� *���������**���������.   -������������������   - ��������� ���������. ~��������� ��������� =j"~-  NATTY COSTUME FOR YOUNG  GIRL.

You keep  your town house, your carriage, your  motor and your country house; while I,  allowed to possess some knowledge,  have none of these things, and, indeed,  can little-more than pick up a bare subsistence."
