The hosts and  their guests included about 80 persons and certainly no more  enjoyable function has found a place on the list of events of  the past months.  The Masons had invited a number of their brothers from  neighboring cities to be present and a goodly number respou-  ed to the invitation, 'lhe music, which was furnished by  the Edison orchestra ot Cranbrook. was everything that  could be desired and i  it was late in the  morning  before the  ���������nd their  The O.PB. have eight camps on  Bull River employing six to eight  hunbred men the year round, besides  these, there are several contractors  and jobbers   operating independently.  - ������^*&.*4s-%!,L^^  dancers regretfully allowed the music to cease, to wen  homeward.

Bliss,near Port Hill on Saturday evening last, to enjoy themselves  at a dance The house was a very roomy  one and just the thing for a jolly crowd  it being 28 foot square with no part-  isians in. Music was furnished by Mrs.  Bliss on the piano aud Mr. Bliss on the  violin part of the time, when several  of the others present relieved them  awhile. About 12 o' clock light refreshments were seived of which all partook  and no one had reason to > complain  of not having thorughly enjoyed themselves, for if they had it was their  own fault. ,  About two months ago fir9 complete*  ly destroyed the home of Mr. and Mrs.  Bliss, they having just sieved to th���������a:  home after a years absence.  BULL RIVER  55 PROGRESSING  It is none too soon to begin making  plans for the chickens one expects to  raise next yeaar, and to get the yard  and coops ready. If an incubator is  used to hach the eggs a brooder will  be rsouired to take cars of tlie chickens; and if they are set tinder hens  one will need a lot of small coops to  keep them and their little ones in.  Home-made brooders will often answer the purpose. Anyone who can  saw boards and drive nails can make  one in a short time at very little  expense, The main thing to look out  for in making a brooder, as well as  the; small coops for the seperate hens  with their broods, is to-see that  it can u6 easily ele-aned. Jf the brooder or coops are made separate from  the floors it will be an easy- matter  to clean, for the house can be turned over, the floors scrubbed and  left to dry for a whole day in the  hot sun.  Tj_e ilooito for the coops wiii ensure  the safety of the little chickens from  rat or other animals that might dig  under the coops and destroy them  sis well as to keep them dry during  rainy weather. It is not a very pleasant thing to get out of bed some  stormy night, go and gather up a  hundred or more half drowned chickens and take them into a house where  a fire must be built to warm and  revive them. Later in the season when  the s. chickens get larger it will not  be ?necessary to keep the coops on  th^^platfdrtos, b  NEWSY LOCAL  ���������  renew at once.

If one intends raising the little chickens in the same yard as the old ones  are kept in, a feeding pen is indispen-  sible. The old chickens will not only  gobble up thje food but will also trample the little ones undei their big feet  and often kill them. The feeding pen  should be made with slat sides and  top and the slats will have to be placed  quite close together for the little chickens. The slats can be so arranged that  every other one can be removed any  time desired. With an arrangement of  this sort it is no trouble to feed the  little chickens for they can eat inside  the pen as long as they want to  and are safe from tho interference  by the larger ones.  Do not by any means neglect to  provide propci drinking troughs or  fountains.      Tho     little chickens  oft^n leave their morning feed to got  a drink. Tho water vessels should  bo located in the shade in order to  koop tho water as cool as possible  in summer,  Thoro is plenty of hard work connected with chicken raising.

VITUS DANCE  it is Mast Co-iraon Among  Children of the School Age.  It your child���������whether boy or girl-  is fidgelty, emotional and awkward,  you should watch it carefully as it may  develop St. Vitus dance. Frequently  children cannot keep still, they move  with strange actions, their limbs jerk  and their features twitch nervously.  Speech is coufused and tbe whole muscular system not undfn* control. Thesp  are among the symptoms of St. Vitus  dance, a trouble that aniicis -growing  girls and boys, most frequently during the school age. Dr. Williams-  Pink Pills are such a splendid nervt*  tonic that they have cured the worst  cases of St. Vitus dance. They do  this because the new, rich blood they  make feeds and strengthens tlie starved nerves, thus throwing off the disease. Here is an example. Mrs.  L. L. Gilford, Westover, Ont., says:  'For over two years my little girl, Constance, was a sufferer from St. Vitus  dance. She was frightened badly by  a dog, which teemed to bring on the  trouble, and notwithstanding all we  did for her it seemed to be growing  worse. She grew so bail that she  could not feed herself and her speech  was so badly affected that we could  carcely und^rs-land her. The twitching and jerking of her limbs was pitiable. At this juncture we began giving her Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and  to'our great joy they have completely  cured h'>r, and she is now as healthy  a child as you can find."  Or.

Somehow he  had failed to hit the taste of the citizens of the little Bavarian town in  which he,carried on business, and he  was at his wit's end to find a device  for attracting the fickle public. Suddenly he hit on a brilliant idea. He  inserted two advertisements in the  local newspaper.      One ran" ���������  Young men with large income desires to make the acquaintance of a  young lady with a view to marriage.  Money a matter of secondary importance.  The other ran:  Young lady with about 50,000 marks  (later, more) wishes to marry a young  man. A gentleman with good character, eVen if he is without means,  will find an ideal home.  These announcements brought dozens of replies dally and, writing on  behalf of the Imaginary young man  and the rich and also Imaginary young  lady, tho proprietor of the Edelweiss  made a rendezvous with all applicants  in very naturally, his cafe.

Washington.���������President   Taft    and  the  cabinet are iu  accord  that Congress   shall   share   the   responsibility  for any intervention in Mexico.  Conferences between the President  and bis advisors ended with the un-  derstaiidlirig that should conditions in  Mexico City become so much worse  aTto demand the landing of American  trooos, Mr. Taft will lay before both  Houses of Congress the facts in. a  Special message. Every preliminary  was arranged for the action which  might follow such a course. Thirty-  five thousand men, of the army, navy  and marine corps, were put in reali-  hess for movement. The flrst brigade  of the first army division just created, three thousand men in all, and  the nucleus of an expeditionary force  of I5,CG0 was put on 'Starching, orders  ready to entrain for Newport. >Tew<*,  Va., where army ��������� transports wait un-  der, ateam.  ��������� Between 2,500 and 3,000 marines  of the Atlantic, battleship fleet and at  the Gunantanamo naval station, were  prepared for immediate movement to  Vera Cruz, where they might be kept  aboard ship ready for landing to  blazean aVenue of escape to Mexico  City for foreigners, as was done .hy  the great powers at Peking.  Six Dreadnoughts with approximately 6,000 jackles and officers are now  rustling under full steam ,for Mexican ports���������four on the Atlantic and  two on the Pacific. Ten other crack  fighting ships ?of the Atlantic bait-  tSeship fleet, swinging at anchor seventy hours off Gauntanoma are ready  for se>a. They have approximately  9,000 officers and men.  Within call to supplement this force  are the cruiser Denver, enroute to  Acajutha. Salvador; transport Buffalo.,  si* Corimo, Nicaragua; cruiser Des  Moines, en route to Bluefields, Nicaragua, and due there -Saturday; gun-  ���������fccat Nashville,, en route to Honduras.  It Is the feeling of the administration that these plans are all that can  he done at this time, and that a sufficient number' of warships have been  despatched, not only to observe developments, but to practically create  neutral zones at ports where they lie,  l*a whioh Americans and other foreigners in ?vlexico may find safety.  It ha's been suggested in some centers that to land troops in Mexico  would be.such an act of war as can b?  justified only by a resolution of Congress. Many military officers fail lo  see anydistinctlon between such tending? of troops on foreign soil in cas<?  of 'anarchy, and the employment of  ���������v marines for the same purpose, as was  done.4n Nicaragua recently.  To meet the constitutional objection  {s case the transports were sent to  Vera Criia, it is understood that tlie  commanding officers would be instructed not to land troops except upon  Congressional authority.  Their presence on the coast, it is  ���������felt, would doubtless have a strong  moral, effect upon ihe contending factions in. Mexico, and more than a  week's time would be saved in placing the soldiers just where they would  be needed in case danger to foreign  lives and property should become  more imminent.

He declared immorality as one of the  most prolific causes of poverty and divided the reasons for people becoming  dependent on others by the following  percentages:  Intemperance, 21; Inefficiency, often congenital, 22; improvidence, 16;  shirtlesehess, 15; immorality, 13; stupidity, 7; ignorance, 5. In Ontario,  he pointed out. there are 15000 in  bouses of refuse, and 7.000 receiving  municipal aid and otherwise helped.  Dr. Bruce Smith advocated .the segregation of all feeble minded women  during the maternity period in industrial refuges and the ap-Dl'catlon of reformatory methods to first offenders.

It is good to see Abram back at the '  place of the altar between Bethel, and  Hai and to hear him calling on the  name of the Lord (verses 3, 4) and to  know that the Lord has abundantly  pardoned him according to His word.  It may seem strange to some to see  Abram very rich in cattle, in silver  and in gold (verse 2) notwithstanding;  his wanderings from the Lord, but let  such consider their own mercies and  say if they have not been dealt with  in loving kindness beyond all their deserts. .

Thus magnanimous could this  great man afford to be because he  was the friend of God and the Lord  was his portion.

Tt is said that he lifted up  his eyes, but it was only to behold the  low and fruitful valley of. the Jordan.  He did not behold the Lord nor consider His will in the matter. It  was a case of. self only.  It was good for Lot to be with Abram, bnt not so good for Abram to  have Lot with him. Separation from  Lot was really to Abram's advantage  and evidently pleasing to the Lord, for  the Lord had' another message for Abram as soon as Lot was separated  from him (14-17). There was a renewed assurance that the Lord would  give blm the whole land and the promise that his seed would be as the  dust of the earth (verse 16).

I've got to bave that kind of  quills for my bat.. 1 never saw tbe  like. Whose ls it, and where did It  come from?"  No one said a word, for Elnora's  question, the reply and ber answer  had gone tbe rounds of tbe high  school. Every one knew that the Limberlost girl bad come out ahead, and  Sadie Reed bad not felt amiable when  the little flourish bad been added to  Elnora's name In the algebra class.  Elnora's awlft glance was pathetic,  but no one belped ber. Sadie Reed  glanced from the hat to tbe face*  around her and wondered.  "Why, this is tho fresbman section.  Whose bnt in It?" sbe asked again,  this time Impatiently.  "That's tbo tnBsel of the cornstalk,"  said Elnora. witb a forced laugb.  The response was genuine. Every  ono shouted. Sadie Reed blushed,, but  she laughed aiso.  "Well, It's beautiful," sbo satfl, "especially tbe quills. Tbey are exactly  what 1 want, i know I don't deserve  nny kindness from you. but 1 do wish  yon would toll me at whose store you  got those quills,"  "Gladly," sold Rluora. "You can't  get quills llko those at a store. Tbey  ure from a living bird. Pboobo Slmms  gathers tbem In' her orchard as her  peacocks shed them. Thoy aro wing  quills from tho males."  Then there was a perfect sllenco.  How was Elnorn to know that not a  girl there would hnvft told that?  "I haven't a doubt but I can get you  some," she offered. "She gave Aunt  Margaret a great bunch, nnd those aro  part of them. I am quite sure she has  aoore and would snare Home."  CHAPTER Vlll.

In Germany for example, the consumption per head of population of rye,  wheat and meat, notwithstanding the  high prices, has largely increased, the  deposits with savings banks have  enormously risen, and Doctor Kaufman believes that these indications  of national prosperity are mainly attributable  to     the    national    insurance  Economic development, of course, i  plays its part, but this development is  furthered by the security which insurance in all its branches gives to  the workers. Reasoning by analogy, similar results may be expected  in England.  Thirdly, an improvement in the  conditions of life of the worker means  improvement in the- quality of work  done by him. This may be-regarded  as an industrial axiom.  I Fourthly, the new English law will  affect thp lower strata of people, just  as it has done in Germany. This  strata hitherto were helpless, but sick  insurance and old-age pensions remove their most crying needs. Com-  nulsion- for these classes was absolutely necessary. In a few years will be  witnessed a new life, new hopes and  new ideals in these classes.   .  Finally, there is the improvement in  national hyirlene to be expected, es-  neclally In all that affects tuberculosis  and other national diseases. The.  hygiene initiative of tho insurance.

OLD PROSPECTOR  TELLS HIS STORY  HIS   REAL     TROUBLES     STARTED  WHEN  RHEUMATISM'GOT HIM  T������������"c  Women,   Miles  Apart   Decide  to  Kill Themselves at the Same  Time  Geneva.���������A very curious >case of  what is described as telepathy with a  suicide is being discussed here.  Some people ascending the Saleve  by the funicular were startled to see  an elderly woman walk to a ledge  overlooking a ravine 400 feet deep.  She wrapped a shawl round her head  and jumped over the precipice. The  victim, sq it was afterward discovered, was a widow named Mme. Simon,  who had been greatly distressed because a. younger sister, with whom she  had lived, had for the last five months  been a patient in a Geneva hospital.  Here is tbe curious feature of the  tragedy.     The news of the suicide did  not become generally known in Geneva for several hours, but at about  the time of the tragedy the woman in  the hospital declared to the nurse that  her sister was dead, and she did not  wish to survive her. In the nurse's  absence she threw herself from the  ward window into the street, and was  so severely injured that she is not expected to recover.  So far as Is known no written communication had passed between tlie  two sisters for a fortnight.

Profitable Litigation  Among the curiosities cf litigation  may he cited the following case. Un  the boundary line of Uvo fi-rms in an  Austrian village there grew a large  gooseberry-bush, from which the two  farmers for years gathered the product. What grows on my s'.de is  mine, and you may have the rest, was  the agreement.  Some time ago the neighbors had a  misunderstanding,-and this came to a  climax when the gooseberries became j  ripe.      A lawsuit followed,    and    ap- j  peals  were   made   to   higher   judicial'  bodies.    The final decision was lately recorded in the Austrian courts.  Each party is to have ths right to  pick the berries which grow on his  side of the line, just as it was originally, hut neither may destroy the bush.  The costs are charged Half to each litigant. . Each farmer had to pay 225  krone. The yearly yield of the bush  is worth about one-half krone, and the  judge told the fighting farmers: With  good luck, It will take you only 800  years to make the bush pay. Take  good care of it.  -BKT'  .SOOTHES the CHILD. SOFTENS the GUMS,  JSIXA.Y8 all PAIN; CURES WIND COLIC, and  *������?(,*-,������ best remedy for _ 1ARRH<EA.. It is ab.  meittteXv harmless.

Hard to Explain  Mr. Wedgwood Benn, M.P.. tells this  amusing incident of his life in Parliament. Once when bis Party were  i partieularly anxious to have a large  attendance of Members at the House,  after sitting all night, .it was decided  to send telegrams to those who jwere  not in attendance, stating: Awaitjng  you at the House.  Unfortunately, the telegrams were  accidentally sent to several members  who were present, wi'tih the result that  upon their returning home and explaining to their wives what a terribly busy night they had had at the  tioasb, t.-ouble ensued.

But one night we  were to put the show on away out in  tihe middle of the desert, and one of  those wretched camels got thirsty.  Just when the tank had been filled  ready for the heroine's thrilling leap  for life the brute stuck its head  through the wings and drank the tank  dry.

The King's Guests  Those who are invited to spend a  few ciays with the King at Windsor  are sometimes apt to be rather overcome by the grandeur they find, and  an excess of shyness, something like  stage fright, is in some cases of first  visits the inevitable accompaniment ,of  che _r_c evening at tne Castle.  V In Queen Victoria's time guestsH  were bidden only to dine and p'������e*i.  Therefore all they saw of t_.eir Royal  hostess was comprised in a i_w u...u.-  utes conversation in the drawing-room  after dinner, unless they happened to  be near the Queen at the dinner-  table.  This Is all altered now;  guests are  bidden to stop two or three days, and  consequently   see  much more  of the  King and Queen than in former times.  The   question   of   dress   always   is  a  great   problem  with the   ladies  commanded to Windsor Castle,    for,    instead of acquiring only    one    smart  evening   toilette and   suitable  jewels  for a dine and sleep visit of one night,  quite a trousseau must be laid in for  three or four days' stay.      No particular dress is required on arrival, as  guests are sHiown at   once    to   their  rooms, but next morning it. is necessary to appear rather smartly dressed  ?or breakfast, whioh. is quite a formal  meal at the Castle.  Then another change of toilette is  required when the time comes to join  the shooters at luncheon, and ye-t-__-  otiher on returning to the Castle for  five o'clock tea. Every night, too,  a different toilette must be worn, suitable to 'the Royal surroundings, and  proportionately expensive.

The other day a shabbily-dressed individual, purporting to be an emissary  of the Fisherman's Home, coolly took  a box round while an open air meeting  was in progress.  For a time he and his box were  merely glanced at by the audience, until he presently came upon a wealthy  gentleman wearing a gold watch and  chain and a diamond ring.  Thinking of take a rise out of him.  the wealthy gentleman decided to  probe him.  Do you fleih? he asked of the emissary.  Yes, air, came the respectful answer.
