As we are well aw.are, the co-operative movement eo far as it 'affects Farmers and Women's Institutes in this  province has been established on a  sound basis and I should be much obliged if you would give publicity to the  announcement ofthe Convention to be  held by our American cousins, as it is  possible that some members of B. C.  Associations might be able to attend,  or at any rate, by being informed as 'o  what is being done on the other side  of the line the cause of co-operation  may be strengthened in this Province.  The papers to be read and the subjects to be discussed are comprehensive  and interesting, including such as the  organization of Institutes by the Federal Government in co-operation with  the States; Demonstration of Improved Methods; The Local Unit for Institute Organizations; Tlie Tonant Far-  itier; Tho non-resident Owner; The  Recent Immigrant, eto.

It has become necessary  to show the hardier plants and flowers  outdoors,   and some   very pretty   and  extensive gardens nre being laid out to  exhibit them in, while tho more delicate  varieties  are being  yesorved for the  space in the interior.

He gaze-d at Francks, with -scarcely  horror in his eyes, rather amazement  mixed with awe. ������-  There was a long silence. I can't  believe it. he Whispered at length,  you don't know what you are saying.  It's true.  There was a note of nnaiity in  Franck- voice which might well have  convinced any man whether he were  friend.or foe, man of law or man of  God.  Ernest Laughton turned away, and  walking to the window flung it open  nnd let the cool air beat upon his  face. He had never received a more  sudden or more severe shock in his  life. Not for a moment did his allegiance to Francks waver, either as  a lawyer cr as a friend.      It was a  CHAPTER XXV  Jimmy Franc-s* letters reached Abingdon Villas soon after, Aaron Roberts.

Something fresh "has transpired,  which you're keeping from me, Mr.  Roberts, Iris said quietly. The danger  at which you Mated, has increased.  Mr. Francks wants me to leave town  to-morrow after tho Inquest, hut I  shan't go.  The Jew folded up tho letter and  put it in his pocket, the fingers of  his great hands trembled, he kept his  eyes averted.  Nothing fresh has happened, he replied. In my interview with. Mr.  Francks I told him everything. We  understand one another, and I think  he trusts me. And you trust me too,  now, don't you?  She did mot reply at once, she was  gazing into*space.

He  had heard the gossip which bad attended the wedding of Francks with  Sain-tsbury's daughter, but had paid no  attention to it; now he recalled tihe  various stories which had gone the  round of the clubs and drawing-rooms  and city offices. .

But an instance ls furnished by Professor J. S. Dexter of Columbia University of a contribution wbio". mos-  quitos appear to makr*> towards natural process���������they pollinate orchids.  A research student, Miss Diets, working  &t plant -oology,  first informed  the professor that  In a neighboring  marsh Bhe had -seen & mosquito bearing on its head two Bmall yellow masses whi<_i looked like -pollen. Professor Dsxtor went to the    marsh    and  caught a. number of tnosqui'tos, all of  them bearing    tho    yellow    masses,  which proved to be pollen of the orchid Habenarla obtrusata,    at    thai  time abundant and in full bloom.   It  is a  small green and inconspicuous  orchid, but Its flower is very similar  in construction to that of Orchis Mas-  cula, described by Darwin in his book  on orchids.     Moreover, with mosquitoes substituted for bees tho complex  process of pollination is very nearly  identical In the case of either orchid.  Professor Dexter gathered a number  of the plants aad collected a few mos-  quitos, which were free from pollen  and put them together in a glass aquarium jar.     In a few days the mos-  quitos had removed most of the yellow patches about their eyes.      This  appears to be the ouly case known in  which  mosquito3  are  the chief evident agents of pollination.

The Best Cover for Soldiers  Experiment?, have been made In  Europe to determine what color in  a soldier's uniform is the least conspicuous to an enemy. Of 10 men,  two were dressed in light gray uniforms, two in green, two in dark "blue,  and two in scarlet. All were then ordered to march off, while a group of  officers remained watching.  Surprising as it may seem, the first  to disappear were the scarlet. Then  followed the dark gray, while the dark  blue and green remained visible after  the others haJ disappeared, says an  exchange. Experiments in firing at  blue and red targets, according to  the same experiments, proved that  blue could be more easily seen, at a  distance than red.  Youth fn Germany  The well-known publicist,- M. Andre Francois Poncet, bas just been  making an elaborate inquiry into the  mental status and spiritual outlook of  the youth of Germany, and f._ds, according to his conclusions published  ia ������������������ L'Opinion. that 'the German university youth of today is, broadly  speaking, neither alert , nor wide-awake, nor keenly Interested ln contemporary questions. He reads little, observes little; he is stolid, self-  satisfied, without, foresight, ignorant.  He ls at the beck and call of the  forces which rule the country. Upon  it the military state regts���������it is one of  the pillars on which it raises its hier-  archlal edifice.  Tho wrlier considers that the young  men of the university form a caste  which Is closely linked with ihe easts  of tho army. .  The student Imitates the lieutenant.  Ho adopts his stiff carriage, his restrained walk. Ho wears his mustache Iu the same way; he bows with  the same click of the heels. This university cas'.e is also a devout supporter ot the Government, r.nd of the Government not as representing some  principle or other, but simply as such.  There Is, ho goes on, In the German  nature, I will not say a1 natural servility, but an inborn tendency to obedience, an Inveterate respect for power.  The youth of the university shares the  sentiments with the majority, but  other consideration enter into his attitude. The attachment of the student and also of the professors to  the Government is due r.o doubt to a  sincere conviction that on it the national greatness depends. But this  conviction is further strengthened by  the knowledge of the advantages to  be found in subservianc to the powers that be. The cry of the stomach  (sic) is In harmony with the cry of  the heart.  ���������Among the "German students Is  found no trace of the intellectual measles, which seizes on the young  Frenchman���������an Englishman for that  matter���������in the first year of university  life,   ���������nd   passes   off   in   a  harmless, _ _   even  salutary, eruption of red tiesYftiness jn the pulpit, he broughtdowa  The writer's conclusion is: The youth  the house at coavocation by one re-  r  Clears the brain, -stimulates   the   digestion  and sends you to your ,  office feeling fine.

According to John Ashton, under Charles  I, it was not only usual for women  to join the men: In smoking, but in  Worcestershire the-children went to  school with pipes in their satchels,  and the schoolmaster called a halt in  their studies while they all smoked  and he taught the neophyte.

OF   CANADA,  Limited       *-  53 Fraser Avenue, Toronto, Ontario  As to Leprosy In America  Dr. Rupert Blue's assertion before  the convention of the American Medical Association that leprosy is increaa-  ing steadily in theUnited States and  that  there  Is  consequently need  of  closer government supervision has an  aarming aspect.    In tho   absence   of  statistics showing definitely what the  growth of the terrible pest amounts  to, it remains a   question,   however,  j whether the grounds of alarm are as  I serious as Dr. Blue's statement would  i appear to imply.    If we look around  us  for  evidence,  where  is  It  forthcoming?      In the city of Pittsburgh,  for example, there has been, but one  case of leprosy in many years, the Buf-  ferer being a Chinaman, who somehow  drifted In here, ai d who was promptly  seized and placed in isolated confinement at the pesthouse.    What is true  as to this city ought to furnish a fair  Indication of general conditions.      It  may be that Dr. Blue refers particularly, to the Pacific coast, where, immigrants from the Orient are prone to  bring in contagion or its germs.      If  so it is unfortunate that he should  generalise and create needk-ss perturbation.     In the face of his alarmist  statement, it may be. stated with confidence that in Pennsylvania, far from  being on the Increase, leprosy has not  even a perceptible foothold.

Biggest Surveying Jobs  Two of the'biggest jobs of surveying  ever attempted are the marking of the  boundary between Alaska and Canada,  which has just been completed, and  the: marking ?pf the?southeim boundary  of Canada, which is now in progress".  Both surveys.are of a difficult nature,  and the Alaskan boundary particular^  so because of the mountainous and, in  "-"���������arts inaccessible-* character -"-f +>������������*  regions traversed.  The most difficult part of the line  was that starting at Mount St. Elias,  on the southern shore of the peninsula  of Alaska, and running southeast along  eighty-three peaks of the coast range  to the head, of the Portland channel,  a distance of about 700 miles. "Much  of this section of the b-undary was,inaccessible, and could only be reached  where it was crossed by inlets connected with the sound that parallels  the coast. From these points the  peaks that mark the boundary, as well  as the topography along the line, were  located and mapped by trlangulation  and photo-surveying methods.  The line running north from Mount  St. Elias to the Arctic ocean was not  so difficult of a.cess, although it lies,  over glaciers and somo of the highest  mountains in the world, but the work  of marking was in many ways more  like Arctic exploration than an ordinary job of surveying. This line runs  due north and south, following the  141st meridian (longitude west from  Greenwich), and is now marked by  ISS -tone mouumeiits-sst about thrs-e  miles apart.      Everything had to be  The Belgian Congo uannibais  From Ruwi to Malange is perhaps  eight hundred miles as the crow flies,  but being pedestrians and as the cannibals were carrying on extremely active warfare in the country traversed  by the direct route, for safety, we had  to make a long detour that added almost two hundred miles to our trip.  That was in July, 1907,-and we" had  reached tihe most westerly of the Kat-  j anga mines at Ruwi with the intention  nf nr,  of proceeding directly west to Angola.  The southwest corner of the Congo  was, at that time, a veritable hot-bed  of cannibalism and slaving. All captives that the cannibals did not eat  they sold to the Portuguese.  Such conditions had prevailed for  many years, and the chances of improvement seemed extremely small.  A few months later, however, the Com-  pagnie Kassal, an immense rubber  trading concern under the leadership  of a chief du secteur, waged war on.  the cannibal Welesbl and effectively  put them to route. Only here and  there a few remain.  Seventy miles north of Lukoshi we  found a stump, quiet evidently a sort  of sacrificial altar, as it was decorated with human skulls, mostly those  of little children. The territory in  which this was found was occupied by  the Waleshi until less than threo  yearc ago. They were the worst  slave traders of air the tribes ot thi3  section. It was very largely for their  lawlessness -arid absolute disregard or  the decrees of the Compagnle Kassal  that they were driven from the country  in which they had operated for so  many years.

Creston Distract Most  ind Itself  When a  man  lives  alone,  isolated  from all his  fellows,  dependent alone upon himself  for the  necessities  as well as  the luxuries of life, he can do  very much  as he likes and  leave undone  what  he does  not wish  to do;  and there is  no   question   that  in   time a  man would retrogress and iirs-  Q_1l-w become oi  no account to  himself or  to  anybody  else,  but when   that man  through  the course   of his  avocation,  is brought into  contact with  his   fellows,    lives    amongst  them,  is  amenable to   their  laws, and receives the benefit  of their associations, he must  do some things  he does  not  like to do  and  leave undone  some things he  would like to  do.  If Creston District were all  i  alone in the fruit, vegetable  and poultry business, it could  do just as it liked with the industries, it could neglect to let  the outside world know of its  existence, as in all probab lity,  the outsider would seek the  Creston District and there  would be a market which  would be absolutely at the  control of the District, both as  to prices and conditions.  When Creston District,  however, is actually in the  market in competition with  many other districts, handling  the same line of goods, under  similar conditions, there are  certain things that Creston  District must do, or in time  retrogress and become of no  conseauence as a producing  point.  Creston District must learn  Wore about the industries it is  endeavoring to forter. No  Wan can kn6w all about any  one thing, there is wisdom in  the counsels of m iny.  Creston District must organize���������get together���������to include every grower, regardless  of his ci ced, nationality, wealth or station or the numerous  eccentricities that constitute  the individuals of the human  race,  Creston District must deliver the goods���������one hundred  cents'worth for every dollar  Creston District must advertise. There are many ways  of advertising, and oue must  not think tbat his own form  of presenting a subject to the  public is the only one or the  best one. There may be others  just as good. Many men as  an organization can arrive at  held this fall presenns one of  the best opportunities to advertise the district that could  come within the reach of this  district and "with the good  name we already have there is  no reason why the district  should not at once realizesome  benefit from the holding of  what is going to be the greatest showing of fruit, vegetables and poultry evei golteu  together in the history of the  Creston District.

The Eskimo defies  the laws of hygiene : nd thrives. He  eats until lie is satisfied, but is said  never to be satisfied while a shred of  his feast remains unconsunied. His  capacity is limited by the supply and  by that only.  The Eskimo cannot make any mistake about the manner of cooking his  food, 'since/as a rule, he does tot cook  it. Nor, so far as the blubber or fat  cf the arctic animal is concerned, is  the Eskimo concerned about his manner of eating it. Indeed, lie may be  said not to eat it at.all. He cuts it  into long strins s.n inch wide and an  Inch thick and then lowers it down  his throat as one might lower a rope  into a well.  Despite all this the Eskimo does not  suffer from indigestion. He can make  a good meal off the flesh and skin of  the walrus, provision so hard and gritty that in cutting up the animal the  knife must be continually sharpened  Air Sickness  M. Berget, a French aeronaut, after  speaking of the conditions of the atmosphere in general, brings out somo  points on aviator's sickness. Aeroplanes sometimes reach altitudes ot  ten thousand feet in an hour, and hero  the effects on the ear such as humming or cracking noise are about tho  same as in a balloon, but the effect oh  the respiratory organs Is different.  The pilot is sooner out of breath and  he feels a special kind of uneasiness.  During the descent, the heart beats  are of greater amplitude, but without  accelerating. A quicker descent ln a  sailing flight at a speed of 1,000 or  1,200 feet a minute or even more,  causes a feeling of a special Kind, or  uneasiness, accompanied with humming in the ears. Burning in the face  is also felt and a severe headache, also a great tendency to sleep which has  been before observed. The movements of the body are sluggish and  unskillful. These symptoms continue for some time after the landing,  and the tension in the arteries is noticed to be lusher than the normal.

What Is a popular phrase? _om-������  one once asked. Something we all  repeat like parrots, without knowing  Its origin, wan tihe reply bj the cynic; and to a certain extent he waa  right. How did those common phrases 'tuft-hunters' and "fool'a paradise'  arise? We have an Idea that the  former refers tb the person Who seeks  th������ society and apea the manners of  the Upper Ten; but Why tuft?" And  why 'paradise' for the fool who shuts  his eyes to threatening troubles and  dangers, satisfied with the enjoyment  of the������ moment?  As a matter of fact, the latter  phrase originated ln the theological  argument that there is a place for  fools just outside paradise. While the  term tuft-hunting, took its rise at the  Universities of Oxford and Cambridge,  where at one time the young noblemen were a peculiarly-formed Ycap  with a tuft, -which presumably attracted hangers-on.  Many other curious stories of the  origin of popular phrases are given  in 'Everyday Phrasea Explained'  (Pearson). It Is related that 'Hob-  son's choice arose from tlie fact that  Hobson, a noted carrier ln Cambridge,  would only let out hla horses and  coaches for hire in rotation, re-fusing  to allow his customers to choose, a  customer being compelled to tako the  horse nearest the door. Thus it became customary when anything was  choice.  Eatln_ humble pie Is a phrase which  really avose from the corruption of  the word 'umbies' or 'numbies,* the  coarser parts of a deer killed In hunting, which when made Into a pie,  were formerly reserved for the lower  hunt servants; while cooking his  goose, is a phrase which originated  when the King of Sweden, on approaching a hostile town, excited the  contempt of tho Inhabitants by the  smaliness o������ his army. To express  this they hung out a goose tor blm  io shoot at, whereupon the klpg set  fire to the town to cook their goose.  Long ago unscrupulous peopla used  to take a cat tied in. a bag to market,  where they tried to sell it for a pig.  If, however, a purchaser opened the  bag before buying, the cat of course,  jumped out. displaying the fraud.  j Hence the term: letting the cat out of  'tho bag.

(Sp.cial).���������"I  can truly recommend Dodd's Kidney  Pills for any one suffering from rheumatism." These are the words of  Mrs. W\ A. Baldwin, a highly respected resident of this place. And  Mrs. Baldwin gives her reasons.  "I waa nearly helpless with rheumatism for two years," she states. "I  got medicine from the doctor, and  tried several other remedies but nothing helped me. Then one of my  neighbors advised me to try Dodd's  Kidney Pills. I bought four boxes Ithree'plnts  and they helped almost from the first.  I have used nearly two dozen boxes  and am nearly cured."  That rheumatism is one ot the results of diseased kidneys is again  shown in Mrs. Baldwin's case. She  had headaches, stiffness of the joint;  and backache, her sleep was broken  and unrefreshlng, and she was always  tired and nervous. Her limbs swelled  and she was always thirsty. These  are all symptoms of diseased kidneys.  When she cured her kidneys with  Dodd's Kidney Pills, the symptoms  vanished���������and so did the rheumatism.  Plna by the Million  In England eV0ry day there is an  output of ove? 54,000,000 pins. Birmingham, the greatest centre of the  industry in. England, alone produces  87,000,000 pluB per day. The output  of other pia manufacturers in England  la only about halt that of Birmingham.  In France t_.e dally productionris 20/-  000.000, while Germany and Holland  produce 10.000,000 per "day. The total  output for Europe each day is, therefore, 84,000,000. ?  It Is seldom that a pin gets broken  or worn, and the question is, therefore^  "Where do all the pins go ior'' xme  greater number of the_t get lost, an-S  there Is no other domestic article  when e there Is so much waste by loss.  If every Person ln Europe lost a pin  on every third day the daily loss  would represent over $5,000.  In former days the number of men  required to make a pin was one of |  the marvels of the manufacturing  world, but, as with mo3t other products, machinery has taken the place  of men, and pins are now produced  much faster.  The machines are so perfect that  they cut the wiro oi which the pin-  are made Into pieces of tho right  length, head, point, polish and sort  them. They are then put lato an  other machine, whioh affixes them to  the paper at the rate of 80,000 to  100,000 nor hour.  In the fottrtoonth century pins were  plus. They wore not carelessly lost  as nowadays, or given as a substitute  for a farthing change. The law permitted that they should only be sold  on tho first two days of January each  year, la order that they might not be-  como too common. It therefore, became the custom for ladles of all classes to buy their year's stock of pins on  these days, and the money given them  for this was known as pin money���������a  phrase that has survived to the present day.  .   Water for Health  It Is queer, said a medical man to  the writer, how few people drink the  amount of water they should to insure  good health. You should take at  least three pints dally.  In the first place, you lose by perspiration aud evaporation In the breath  about two pints a day of the water  vou take into the system, and about  another pint goes to help keep the  blood In order and the skin glands and  joints, etc., sufiiclently moist. Milk  is not of much use to replace this, as  it is mainly a food. Tea and coffee  are not advisable drinks, because they  comain a nerve destroying drug (caffeine), Cocoa, again, is more of a food  than a drink, and alcohol���������well, the  ess said about that the better.  The only drinks we have left, then,  are mineral waters and plain water.  Too much mineral water Is not good,  but plain water contains no harmful  drugs or minerals and, moreover, is  nature's own product. If you -drink  sufficient of It the skin will be kept  clear of pimples, rashes and sores, the  blood will be purer and nature will  see to It that sufficient water b'e mingled with It so that it circulates normally and not sluggishly because it is  thick with impurities.

The Newcastle engineer's achievement of just a century  ago may therefore be regarded aa the  beginning of what must rank among  the-three or four most valuable and influential mechanical Inventions ln the  history of the .yorld.

The officer who arrested Hetherington testified that he appeared upon a publlo  highway wearing upon his head a taU  silk structure, which he culled a silk  hat, having a shiny luster, and calculated to frighten timid people. Sever*  al women fainted at the unusual sight,  while children screamed, dogs yelped  and a. young son of Cordwalner Thomas who was returning from a chandler's shop, was thrown down by th������  crowd which collected and had his arm  broken. The defendant pleaded that -  he was merely exercising a right, possessed by every Englishman, to appear  ia any head-dress he chose, and had  not violated any law. He was, nevertheless, bound over In $2,500 to keep  the peace. This verdict aroused ths  wrath of the Times.

Pugnacious Flsh  Many fishes like the knlghtu of old,  fight among themselves for the love  of fighting or because they have nothing better to do, according to a bulletin of tho New York _ zoological society. -There are others, however,  which fight to protect themselves or  their young. Speaking of the fights  among fishes in the aquarium, the bulletin says: The angel fishes, beautiful  as tbey are In appearance, have perhaps the most devilish disposition of  all. A tank ot angel fishes reminds  one of tho notorious, even tempered  family who were all mad all the tlmo.  The watchfulness of attendants usually prevents tho fatal terminations of  those lylsunderstandlngs but occasionally a fa'al Injury is inflicted.

An Unknown Eldorado  A story 13 told at Edmonton, Alberta, that during the Klondike rush three  prospectors went into the Hay a river  country, which, except for a small  part, along the river near Vermillion,  is unexplored. One of the party was  found ou the river bank a year afterward. The man was emaciated and  lived only a few hours, but in his last  few minutes of life told of a fight  with Ind'ans, who killed his two companions. He had iu his possession  samples of rich gold. It could have  been procured In no other place, so  It may be that that unexplored territory is rich in tho yellow metal.  Though the hinterland has been explored to points within the Arctic circle, the upper Hayes river country  still remains a vast unknown streach.  Remarking upon the fact, an old-timer  in tho north country said he had never  known of ���������_ whlto man getting far into that part of thp* country.  From Edmonton to Peaco river  crossing, by way of Athabasca, is 400  miles, and outside of about a GO-mllo  stretch beyond Peace river crossing  and the upper Hayes still lle3 a great  unexplored land of rolling and so far  as ls known, open country.

When I refer to consecrated priests,  do not misunderstand me to mean  the clergy or any denomination nor  of nil denominations. The llibljg,  recognizes no clerical class, but declares. "All ye are brethren.' One is  your Master, even Christ." (Matthew  B3:8.) For more than eighteen centuries God has been culling out from  amongst men the Royal Priesthood  class. .losu?. their High Priest, was  lir.-t called  to suffering and then to  Elory 5    and   Hia    footstep    followers  nve   ������itice    been   invited   to   suffer  with "Him. that they. may also reign \  witli  Him.

Now none but  Mi!.- lioyai i'r'esthood have access,  mill they through their, great Head,  the Kijr-i Priest of their profession.  These, by faith, nave access to God  in prayer at the Golden Altar ot  Incense. These see the light of tho  Golden Candlestick and partaker of  the holy Bread of Divine Truth.  Others may approach God in lho  tense of being Interested In Hhn. de-  tiring to do His will, and of Becking  lo cooperate with tho Royal Priesthood and to render eervico to. tho  Lord's cause.

Under these conditions the poorest  and the meanest of humanity have  the .privilege Yof - approaching with  courage the Throne of Heavenly  Grace to obtain'..mercy, and t_ Und  grace to help in every time of need.  (Hebrews 4:16.) But equally certain  is it that none others have acces3 to  God. "Neither ia there any other  name given under Heaven or  amongst men whereby we must be  eaved -' from our fallen condition,  than the name of Jesus.  Perhaps there ia ��������� something'T9vo!u*  tionary "in this thought that, while!  all may worship in the sense of bowing down and showing reverence to  the Almighty, hone but the consecrated followers of Jeaus have any  assurance whatever of the Divina  supervision of their affairs. And  none but these have any authority  for coming to God in prayer.  One exception io this rule ahould  be here stated; namely, that the  children of consecrated believers,  while they are still immature of  judgment, have a standing with God  through their relationship tb their  parents. St. Paul makes thia very  evident in his declaration: "Ths  unbelieving husband is sanctified by  the wife, and the unbelieving wife ia  sanctified by the husband, else were  your children unclean, but now are  they hoiy."-��������� 1  Cor. 7:14.  The translation of thia text slightly beclouds the Apostle's thought,  which is that where either of the  narents hns become a disciple cf  Jesus, the child stands refated to  God. regardless of the standing of  the other parent. Such children may  participate in * .orshfp and in, prayer. But this relationship "manifestly,  terminates shortly after the child  shall have come to a personal knowledge of its responsibilities. Thereupon it must make a personal covenant with the Lord, of havo its  standing with the rest of the world.  And that standing, be it remembered, does not mean liability to eternal torment. Tt merely mean3 "alien-'  ation. separation, from God .and from  Hia special care and providences in  the present time; for the Divine arrangement is for the ultimate bless-  ing of mankind through the Messianic  Kingdom���������through the Temple of  Glory and it3 Royal Priesthood glorified, in it3 Kingdom .power for a  thousand years.  Some might be inclined to cay.  There are millions of people who,  with more or less formality, approach,  God in prayer daily. Should we not  fear that after a truthful presentation of the facts these would be discouraged? Our reply is that . the  whole responsibility for the Divine  Plan Tests upon its Divine Author,  who says. "He that hath My Word,  let him speak My Word faithfully."  Indeed, the preaching of the Trutli  on this subject may Dring many in-  diCferent ones to the point of deel-  alon. and thus greatly benefit them.  Have we not been telling the world  in general that there 1? practically  no differonce between God'a people  by consecration and the children of  this worldP Have we not been misleading them in this respect? Is it  not- high time that they were told  the truth ,011 this, as well ns soma  other subject*?  A gentleman who attended my  preaching in London met mo tha  followine day and anid.

At flrsfc  this appears to eive God's consecrated people tha right to ask for anything and to expect everything.  But note again the conditions: (I)  "If ye abide   in  Me." ���������'���������:-Those,   who  are in Christ are New Creatures; to  them "old things have passed away,  and all  things have   become   new.  Those    who   have   thus   come   into  membership in  the  Body of Christ,  the consecrated Church,  have given  up their  own  wills,  have  set  aside,  earth'y   aims    and    prospects,   andY  have accepted instead the will of tha  Lord and   the Heavenly -.hopes   and  prospects   set   before   them    in His  Word.   These, therefore, do not wish?  to ask for earthly thing?? but merely  to request the Heavenly thing-, whioh  would  assist  them   in   making their  railing and election sure.  Then oomes the other consideration: (_) "If My Words abide in  you." This signifies that the petitioner not only has a new will-rtha  will of the Master���������but that he has  sought to know what that will is, as  expressed in the Master's word3, or  teachings. And all such pupils In  tha school cf Christ are taught of  Him nnd guided into the understanding of the Scriptures, hence are  able to rightly divide the Word of  Truth, to appreciate the promises  which belong at the present time to  the Church, and to differentiate the  DEFENDED HIS GOTTOiV,  Andrew Jackson   Showed  He   Had a  Grim Sense of Humor.

In Massachusetts these accounts eventually, after being advertised, revert to lite state.  respect  ch<  from the promises ior the world in  the next Age. These know what to  ask Tor, and having the Master's  spirit, would ask lor nothing else.  Thus all their petitions, being for  spiritual -things promised in ths  Scriptures, would have a rich fulfilment.  W.hea St. Paul urges the, consecrated Church to "pray without;  ceasing" and '"in everything give  thanks."ha evidently doea not refer  to -fan-mal prayers, but rather to that  prayerful attitude of the heart which  under all circumstances and conditions looks to God���������either for wisdom and guidance to do His will, or  with thanksgiving . and praise for  blessings received and prayers answered.  Nothing in 'V;.e Apostle's languaara  indicates that, the Lord's people  should - be always on their knees, or  on the other hand that they should  never go upon their knees, but merely that they ahould uplift their hearts  to God at all time? and in:*.!! c-f life's  affairs. The priests in the type offered the moi-^ing and the evening  sacrifices before the Lord, and' so the  Royal Priesthood surely desire that  every morning and every evening  pivine mcrcv and blessings should  be acknowledged with thanksgiving  and   appreciation.  Not- -only eo. but parental duty  properly requires that the Christian  parent, ao far as possible, should  worship with Immature children for  whom he stands as secondary priest,  and that he should offer with these  thanksgiving and praise, and petition for wisdom and guidance 1^> tha  knowing and doing oi the will of  God.  The Church   of   Christ, the Royal  Priesthood, is    a    Bpecial    family   of  God.    "All ye are'brethren.    One is  your Master."    and    "One    ia   your  Father."   Whenever these meet, worship and  praise should constitute a  Sart of their acknowledgment of tha  [eavonly Father.    Hymns ot praise  should properly be coneidered prayer,  a united woraoip, in which  ait may  participate^ But if any of the Lord's  family,   the   Royal   Priesthood,  have  gotten into sin. ha,should hesitate to  take  any  public   part   in   prayer  or  worship.   Ho should consider himself,  because of his enlightenment, to be  one of the wicked, and hearken to tha  message", "Unto the wicked God saith,  What hnst thou to do to declara My  statutes, or tint thou shouldest taka  My  covenant  in   thy   mouth?  seeing  thou hateat instruction and castest My  words behind thee."-~Paalm G0:18, 17.

Each card bore the number of the  person holdiug it, and it would surely  have been discovered If guests -voted  for themselves, which of course would  not be fair? since the lucky owner of  lhe highest number of votes took first  prize.

To come back to the competition, ������  lot of pleasure vvas given to a dear old .  bachelor cplonelof seventy-three; who  easily beaded the men's poll and was  presented? with a charming leather  blotter. The popularity of the girl  who got the most number of votes was  easily accounted for because sbe was ?  going to be married the next .week,  and the men felt they could vote for  her without compromising themselves.  Another story:  If you bave a summer parasol that  needs rejuvenating try Katberine L.'s?  latest scheme.

Blinco, Box 29, Creston, B.C. %  Tbey Cut a Queer Figure Before Sid*  saddles Were  inveniou.  Before Queen Catherine de* Medici  started the fashion of sidesaddles by  having a board slung on the left side  of her borse to support her feet all  poor women rode on a pillion behind a  man. All women of tbe better class  rode astride.  A lady to prepare for riding bent  forward and took hold of tbe lower  hem of the back of ber dress skirt,  drew it through between her legs and  wrapped ber skirts around her legs  down to her knees, then folded tbe rest  of ber skirts across the front of her  person.  . Then she drew on a pair of large  trousers, the legs ot which ended just  below the knees, where they were  sewed to the tops of a pair of clumsy  riding boots. The upper part of the  trousers was open ln front, and the  flaps folded across the person and fastened by a band around tbe waist A  hood was worn on the head, and a  mask protected the face from sun and  weather. She rode on a man's saddle  and wore spurs ond carried a quirt  (riding whip) looped on the right wrist.  The same style and kind of qnlrt is  now used by our western cowboys  and plains Indians and was formerly  carried by the Cossacks.  - A lady In riding costume, whether on  foot or on horseback, was anything but  a graceful figure.  ]   Our great-grandmothers rode on slde-  Isaddles,   but   their   grent-great grandmothers rode astride If they belonged  io the gentry cinss.  Our plains ludiaii women, even when  they changed their buckskin skirts  that came to the knee and their buckskin leggings for the long calico skirt  of white women, always rode astride.���������  Washington Tost  Witchcraft.  In many parts of the world-Greece,  for Instance���������the believer in witchcraft  sttll gets hold, by hook or by crook, of  hair, nnll parings and so forth from  an enemy's bead and bands and burns,  buries or does something else wltb  them ln order to entail unpleasant consequences upon that enemy. And universal folklore reveals th������ concern of  savages to dispose of tbelr own halt  and nail clippings tc prevent an enemy  from getting at them. Australian native girls, having had a lock of half  stolen from them, expected speedy  death as a certainty. ��������� London Telegraph.            '  Virtues of the Nurae.  Sir  William  Osier in a lecture at  Johns Hopkins training school named  the seven virtues of the nurse: "Tact,  without which no womnn can be sue  cessf ul and her chief protection In tbe  mechanism of life; tidiness, it being  the primary duty of a woman to look  well; taciturnity, which should been!  tlvated as a gift; sympathy, gentleness,  the birthright of a nurse; cheerfulness  and cbarlty, the last and greatest of  all.''
