The bacteria gain entrance  through drops of water at tbe water  pores on tbe margins of the leaves.  As the germs of this disease can be  carried on the seed, it is wise to see  that the seed used does not come from  a diseased crop. If doubt exists it Is  well to treat the seed witb formalin,  1-240, or corrosive sublimate, 1-1000,  for fifteen minutes. Likewise, If tbe  disease shows up In a seed bed. this  show Id be changed the next year. If  bad ln tbe field this land should not be  used for cruciferous crops for several  seasons' and, even if the disease Is not  present, yearly rotation is desirable  where It can be carried on without  especial difficulty.

It seemed to Jimmy Francks that  he did not hear the verdict delivered  by the foreman until several minutes  after his voice had died away. The  court was already being cleared before ���������  he realised the meaning of the verdict  and before he came to him-"*".! and  realised his surroundings.  He was a free man again; innocent.  Life which had practically ceased for  him a week ago baC suddenly recommenced.  He stood quite still, gazing stupidly  at the crowd which fought its way  from the court-hous rv He wondered  why he did not shout, or sing, or  dance. He was overwhelmed wiih  gratitude, hut not for his own delivery. As he realised it, a sudden  sense of shame overwhelmed him.  True, he bad been unjustly suspected  but had he not allowed the vilest  suspicions to attach to others���������loose  near and dear to him?  time, too, the song of the clt. no longer echoed in his ears. The.fight he  now waged was far better .iihan.: the  fight for gol.l. As the car rrocked and  swayed and quivered, hnmrningand  roaring as **���������'. rushed madly-on Its way,  be knew that at any mOjaent death  might rise up in the roaflway������and bring  annihilation.  But the danger was welcome, though  he was not risking his life for; himself. Previously every minute he had  spent away from his beloved office in New Bond Street he had grud-  *. now he grudged every second he  had wasted there.

A special session was held at which the treatment  of crime nnd criminals was discussed.  Perfect laws wouid show that we  wero no longer progressing, said Doctor Moore. Old crimes are disappear-'  lag and new crimes ars arising, and I  trus; new crimes will always rise.  following Doctor Moora's addres-s,  Doctor Passmorc, superintendent of  the Croydon hospital for the insane,  urged that when a man wbo commits  a crime is apprehended, someone be  appointed to examini "the prisoner to  ascertain whether he is insane or  criminal. After such an examination  Doctor Passniove said, the proper  treatment could be prescribed.  The Rev. C. B.

Ho maintained that tbe attitude of many who are sent to jail is  that of once bitten, twice shy.  Directly contrary to conventional  ideas of criminology were the theories  of Captain_St. John, the honorary secretary of thi Fenal -Reform League-  A", the harm done to society by all the  burglars and all the thieves is a mere  bagatelle compared with the harm  done by the law courts of England? be  declared.  Everybody - knows the law courts  are makin_ er minals day by day, said  Captain St. John. We have to protect ourselves aot only from criminals  but also from people who deal with  criminals.

Their reply was: Coffee, vinegar or alcohol. As for myself, during tbe three weei'-S I spent in  Holloway jail I used to lie awake between 3 and 6 in the morning and say  to myself that if I got out I would  take green chartreuse, although I had  never tr.ken any ia my life before. But  when I came out I refrained from'doing so because I was afraid. There  is not enough sunshine and fresh air  i:t prison, and long sentences undoubtedly cause a weakening of the will.  Perhaps tbo most interesting speaker at the meeting was Prince Peter  Kropdtkin. the famous Russian scientist and enemy of despotism, who  since his r-scr.pe from St- Peter an-  St. Paul prison, has spent most of his  time in Eni;and. The prince Is 71  years old and has recently recovered  from a severe illness. He was Introduced to his uudience as an old jailbird who had cpent two years in Russian jails and a further,' period ln  Pror.ch pricons. The prince asserted  that imprisonment is not an effective  force in deterring crime.  Twenty-four hours i bread and wa*  tei* and a plank, bed might be a deterrent to people accustomed to good  food, he said, hut it Is no deterrent  to those who sleep under bridges or %y  the shores of tho Thames.

Absolutely Sanitary-  Economical���������Delicious  How to Read the Moon  Few   people   can tell at   a   glantr:  whether the moon is wasing or wan  Ing.    Here is a whimsical rule to re-  lember by.     It is very simple to those  who know Latin, and is not difficult  for those who do not.   The first thi g  is to notice whether the moon is like  a D or a C���������that is whether the full  semicircular curve is on the right or  the left.   If the moon shows a D that  naturally sti.n'ds for    decrescit.       It  wanes.  But 'then comes in the' great principle. The moon Is always deceitfr,  and one has to understand the opposite of what the moon says, so that x  moon which shows a D is a waxing  moon, while a waning moon is like a  c.  Those who have no Latin will o  doubt look to seo whether the moon  says It ls decreasing, in which case  they will understand that It is waxing,  while a waning moon will deny that lt  Ij decreasing.

Toronto, Ontario  Limited  Seme Wonderful Inventions to Prevent  Ocean Disasters  Since the terrible Titanic disaster,  scientists and engineers have been devoting much, time und mean3 by  which ships may detect ths vicinity of  icebergs. The old method consisted of  lowering a therr-.omoter into lhe wa:  ter when the iceberg zone wls being  approached? the idistanae of the ice-  bergs being judged according to the  temperature, of the water in the vicinity.    ;        - . ,..."?;.,,'.?..  .������������������ -.-...  Since the increase in the speed of  big liners, however, ,tfcU' iriethod has  been found to be quite inadequate, being neither safe, quick* nor accurate.  One ot the. most reliable, inventions  for ^detecting icebergs ;at sea -seems to  u6 tiiat of Dr. Copians, of theYuniver-  slty of Leeds, who has invented an apparatus which detects the: presencetiot*  Icebergs by giving readings of the saline contents of the water. The nearer an iceberg is tb' the ship the less is  the amount of salt in solution in the  water. In conjunction with the United States and Canadian Governments  Dr. Copians has been carrying out a  series of experiments on these lines  which are expected to have most important results, and whlel- should do  much towards rendering impossible  such disasters as that " -hioh overtook  the illfated Titanic.  Another invention, of which high  hopes are entertained is what is Known  as the mlcrothermometer, an instrument enabling very much closer readings ofthe temperature of the water  to be obtained than is possible with an  ordinary thermometer. It is also self-  recording.  It Is a curious fact, by tho way. ir  regard to this instrument, tha*. when  an iceberg is being approached the instrument actually records i.. rise In  temperature, this, however, b ing followed by a rapid fall. The explana-  tioiK-j that the water "rom a melting  iceberg, jeaviag. tSie berg at its coldest, gradually travels outward and becomes warmed by .. the absOrp.tlotf- of  heat from the sun. "  Submarine signalling; too, for the  prevention of. disasters in foggy weather, is also being closely studied by  experts, for it is recognized "that there  is much room for improvement ln the  signalling apparatus used ;-t the present time on board ship. Fog-horns,  sirens, and other apparatus used for  sending sound through the air to or  from ships at sea are regarded as very  unsatisfactory, and it is estimated that,  in ten years no fewer than 1,000 vessels,were wrecked, resulting in the  los3 of 500 human lives, owing solely  to aberrations of sound or to echoes.  The modern system of submarine  signalling consists of bills sunk in at  least 20 feet of water, operated by electricity or pneumatic or hydraulic pres-  Lord Mayor Appeals to London Times  ^ -to *-*taIse'Money to Make it Publlo  Property  At the urgent request of the Lord  Mayor of London, Sir David Burnett,  The London ' lines ha* undertaken to  raise $450,000 to save the Crystal Palace which *he Court of Chancery had  ordered sold by auction, uid mako tt <  -(.Srlac'e and its grounds, covering some  200 acres, public property instead of  b-ing split up Into building lots. ��������� titi  ?For nearly two years the prese^  ���������Lord Mayor and two predecessors had  been.s-ekingto raise $i,150,00q necessary-id make ?t_e? purchase^,? aiid dies*;  pairing of completingtiitieYfund, Sir  David Burnett appealed t the Londba  Tiines to, open ;it3ijeo&mnB? for, tisnti-  ncrib'tiohs to the ?������moi���������it of $450,000,  that being his estimate of tho balance  he?will be.unable to obtain. TherTimes  respohded to the appeal with the explanation:  So far as we are a war-* The Times  has never before, in all its long history  made so direct an appeal to Its readers for a large sum of money for an  important national object as we make  today. But the circumstances are . n-  usual and the case, In our opinion, as  cogent as it is iatrinsleall-good.  King George promptly subscribed  $1,000, Queen Mary $500 and   Que_a  A1_-'-ni4trin     (fcf^AA  xxtCAauuiOi   <pw\/*  Lord Plymouth, whose means and  public soirit enabled him to advance  the $1,150,000 heeded t^ preserve tho  property, gave.$25,000.  A private citizen, whose identity Is  to remain unknown except to the Lord  Mayor and The Times, offered to contribute ten shillings for ������very sovereign subscribed by the end cr. a certain  month, limiting his responsib'llty in  this respect, however, to $150,000.  The Times gar������ $5,000, the Duke of  Westminster $5,000, W. Perkins Ball  $5,000, tihe Rothschilds $1,250, and further jarge and small sums were soon  added.  Tbe other -newspapers cf England  immediately rallied to the support of  The Times, and the prospect is favors  able for speedily securing Crystal Palace for thei-i atlon.  Canadian Peace?Centenary  The Canadian Peace Centenary Association is now aotlvoly at work organizing Provincial Committees and  prosecuting Its campaign for the com-  iu-S celebration c2 one?hundred years  of peace. between tie British" Empire,  and the United States.  B. H. Scammell, the orgainlzlng secretary, has just returned from abrlo-  visit to the Maritime provinces, whw?6  the movement has been moat cordially received, in New Brunswick? Nova  Scotia and Prince Edward Island  strong Provincial Committees are being formed, and there Is every indication of a large and growing interest.  Mr. Scammell will visit -Manitoba,  Saskatchewan, Alberta _ridBrlt-sh Columbia, with a view'to considerably enlarging tho membership?.bf?tbe?-:Ai5spr  ciatioii, and securing the active co-operation of tho Provincial Governments  and the leading professional and business men in the four 'Vt/esterh:pi*ov-  Ihceb. As this celebratioh will be  more than, a; gathering and demonstration, it is desired to secure the assistance of the Educational authorities, Churches, National Pocieties, Women's Organizations and Labor Unions.  In addition to the Canadian Association there are two others Tat ..*ork, one  in the United States and one in Great  Britain, both of which have extensive  programmes.

In each tank is the microphone, which  to connected by an electric telephone  system and the bridge. There the navigating officer has suitable receivers  and switches which enable him to listen on either side of the ship. If he  alters the course of the ship on hearing the bell so that the intensity of  the sound is equal on both sides of the  ship then the bell lies straight in front  and according to the intensity of the  various sounds he is able to avoid  danger.

Forty-Sixth Anniversary of Great Am  munition Company  Just forty-six years ago, with the  spirit of reconstruction then abroad in  the land as a moving influence/began  the flrst successful manufacture of  metallic cartridges in tbe United  -tares. Somo while before, when  journeying through the West, Marcel-  lus Hartley had seen a roughly made  metallic shell or case made to contain  the. charge of a gun and had given this  idea considerable thought. After the  Civil War some ten years later, realizing the importance of metallic cartridges for the . new breech loading  arms, Mr. Hartley's firm bought up the  plants and patents of several unsuccessful factor! .s and on August 9th,  186f, the Uniott^ Metallic Cartridge  Company was incorporated, -. half century after the first Remington gun was  made at Ilion, N.Y.  In tho.C0'.3, skin cartridges and those  of parchment and linen holding the  powder and bullet and percussion caps  had been made, together ^ith a few  inferior rim fire cartridges; but now  came this new industry uore important than all the rest combined. A  mechanical genius.was -sought and  found in the person of Alfred C-. Hobbs  whose master skill had~NbrOught him  Muscallonge,   Pike   and   Pickerel   are  all Closely Related.  Three divisions of the piko .family  are known to anglers, and these are  named "muscallonge, pike and pickerel. The gamest of the group, of  cours o 1 s tlie * mrtiscallbnge-' and. students claim -that two varieties are  found. This may or may not be  true, but they confuse . the Great  Northern pike with the muskie in  many parts of the country.  In thl3 section we generally consider the muscallonge as the largest  member of the pike family as specimens as large as 100 pounds have  been reported, but in Europe the common pike often runs to a corresponding size.  Muscallonge, pike and pickerel of  course, are all more or less similar  in shape, and their flns are -of,-the  same number, the base body coloring  of green or yellow also being similar in the different specie-'.' Tn all  too, tha belly color ranges from white  to cream. But this is a3 far a3 the  similarity goes.

Fifteen thousand men are already out of work iu   Berlin;  and  the authorities  of    that  city are expecting a   repetion  of the br-ad riots of last iCear.

By the use of the silo and harvesting  the corn plant for sliage the feeding  value of the plant is increased froni  $10 to $12 per acre. It is estimated  that GO per ceut of the feeding value of  the corn plant is in the ear of corn and  40 per ceut ls in the stalls.  If a field of corn which would make  forty bushels per acre is harvested in  the usual way of gathering tbe com  and leaving the stalk stand we have  harvested only 00 per cent of the crop.  The forty bushels of corn at 50 cents  per bushel are worth $20, but if the  stalks have two-thirds the feeding  value of the grain the stalks are worth  from $10 to $12 or $15 per acre, depending upon the quality of the crop  and the condition they are in when  harvested for silage.  If the stalks are left in the Seid they  have a feeding value of from $l to  $1.50 or $2.50 per acre. This decreased  value of the cornstalk when left in  the field is due to the fact that when  the stalk is left standing it loses ttg  moisture and the fiber becomes hartl,  woody and indigestible.  it is therefore evident that to obtaiu  the ma_i���������:���������>������������������- feeding value of the  corn crop it should be harvested and  made into silage and that the use of  the silo will increase the feeding value  of the corn plants from $10 to $12 pei  ~X%KIJ  E>6p3 ft uueiit  Dair.

To determine how extensively alfalfa was grown by the Wisconsin  Kxperimeut association' requests were  sent to 500 to report on the acreage  grown by tbem in 1911. A summary  of 240 reports received shows that the.  Photo by Long Island agricultural expert*  ment station.  ALFALFA PLANT, SHOWING EXCELLENT  ROOT BYSTEM WITH BACTERIA (NITKOGEN)  NODDLES.  members reporting grew a total of  2,324 acres, or an average of 9.6 acres  each.  For instance, twenty years ago alfalfa was practically a stranger in  Wisconsin, but its introduction and  dissemination bave gone on at such a  rapid pace that it seems safe to estimate that there are at least 25,000  acres now grown iu the state.  Ex-Governor Hoard of Wisconsin  was the first man in his state to recognize the great Importance of alfalfa as  a forage plant, und he bns grown alfalfa and disseminated knowledge regarding it continuously for the past  twenty years. .It is safe to say that  Mr. .Hoard has grown more alfalfa  than any other man in the state.  Alfalfa is 'noted for its high- feeding  value and the grent fondness farm animals have for it It belongs to tbe  legume family, or leguminosae, to  which the common red clover belongs.  Alfalfa through Its largo root growth  exerts a ben ell da I effect upon the soil  ou which it grows and tli rough Its  power to feed on the soil elements and  secure moisture at groat depth below  tbe surface is able to stand severo  droughts and maintain itself upon tho  soil for many years without the necessity of reseodlng.  When It Is desired to plow nn alfalfa  field the strong root growth of the alfalfa will severely interfere with tho  plowing unless tho plowsharo Is kept  sharp.  Kxcept whero alfalfa has bocomo  thoroughly established upon tho farm,  no attempt has been mado to encourage a regular rotation with other crops.  On account of tho special caro Riven  to tho selection and proper fitting of  the Hold Tor alfalfa it has soomed advisable to leave the alfalfa ou tho samo  field as long iih It produced woll.  Ah moiiii iih coiiiIHIoiih are unfiivnrn-  blo and the Held becomes patchy and  crowded with Juno grass and whlto  clover it Is best to cut tho alfalfa Into  in tho seat-on and then plow.

"  The beginner should,sow only a small  acreage until he has studied the conditions? of the farm in relation to this  crop? One or two acres are sufficient to  start with. Land that has been, in  young sod? the previous year and then  run to potatoes, corn, peas or some  root crop where clean- ���������culture??.was  practiced^ is ? most suitable. This  should be fall plowed seveD or 'eight  inches deep,.so as to have a deep; mellow seed bed.  in the early spring run the disk over  the land and then follow with a fine  tooth harrow.-at. weekly intervals until'  about June S, so the weeds will sprout  and be killed.   The alfalfa seed is then  sown   without any  nurse crop,  using'  twenty pounds per acre.   The practice'  of sowing alfalfa with a nurse cropMs'  being displaced by the method of sowing the seed alone and with.much better' results.     Where the  land  is  extremely weedy it is advisable to summer fallow and sow to alfalfa, the first  week ln August,    tf weedy" the land  should be plowed after the crop is removed and a fine tooth harrow run at  Intervals to kill weeds through the lat-<  ter part of summer and early fall.   For  best results one ton of earth per acre  should be scattered immediately preceding the sowing of the alfalfa seed.  Occasionally the alfalfa will come into,  bud and hesitate to blossom.    Sprouts  will then immediately start at the base.  It should be cut when those conditions  prevail, even though no blossoms an.  ���������' peat.  In the afternoon of the same day of  cutting, if weather has been favorable,  the alfalfa cao be raked and put into  small cocks: The cocks should hot be  left standing in the field more than  two or three days during wet weather  without moving or the alfalfa plants  underneath tbe cocks will be partially  f\W*     rtAmililofrtlw     C������S-������r\/*J, + l**--t������<-*-  Wb.        *w*-������������-������-*|/*V**.\-*_f        ������--_������<-*> + --V.* -V*l*>  Ow     nnii-ni t-rt  mj>j   . * %tr,__������*-*j^  a pitchfork into a cock of alfalfa near  the bottom one can easily move the  pile.

In favorable  weather no more difficulty, will be experienced in curing alfalfa than in curing heavy growths of clover. A much  better quality will be secured if the  crop is cured under hay caps?  Tbe importance and popularity of the  plant are such tbat tbe present acreage  in Wisconsin will probably double In  the next three years.

This represents a weight, of 90,000,000 carats.  1������ the immense loss frou theft iu the  early years be taken into consideration, and the diamonds taken from  Brazilian mines and others in different parts of the world be added to the  estimate, it is probable that not less  than 100,000,000 carats would be a conservative estimate of the out-., t. The  value of these in the rough would be j  more than $750,000,000: to this must  be added che cost of cutting and the  profits to the syndicate, to the export-1  er, to the middleman and the retailer.!

Kites are 'to form part of the regular  equipment of French warships hereafter, being classed asaeronautic apparatus with aeroplanes and dirigibles.  They will be jowerful enough to take  up an observer and will be used for  purposes of military observation, 'for  whioh we are to'id they are vastly superior to balloons. The greater the  wind the more easily they are handled,  say^a writer in L'lllustratlon.'  The mounted kites of Captain Sac-  onney have been used by:the French  army for some months. After a long  series of experiments, they are also  to be used by the navy, whioh has laid  out an aeronautic programme, as follows: The use of aeroplanes is to be  limited to coast defense. Dirigibles  of great radius of action will be utilized for naval scouting. Recourse  will be had to the kite rfjr "ghtering  the squadron as a whole a. d for ''surveying a foreign blockaded coast.  The kite has the advantage that the  wind, the great enemy of other aerial  devices, facilitates its evolutions. If  the weather Is calm, the ship makes  its own wind by its.motion. A 3peed  of 18 knots is necessary to elevate the  observer. These kites, dtsmouuted  and stowed away la some corner, can  be mounted five minutes after being  brought to the bridge ot the ship:  while this is being done another party  makes ready the apparatus for sending  up. There are required fifteen minutes for sending, getting ready the bas-1  ket, aud installing the observer, who  remains connected with f-e ship by  telephone. Five minutes is necessary  for an ascension of 1.O0C feet. Ten  suffice for hauling in the rig and stowing it away.  DOG  SMUGGLING  BY AERO  ^-31.  TWICE PROVEN  CURE FOR NERVES  irritable.

Thence  sha drew a lesson in mon.1 cleanliness,  telling the youngsters that while regard for-outward appearance was commendable inward purity was much  more meritorious.

A Customs Officer    Tells    How    Dog  lovers Dodge Quarantine fer Their  Pets  Smuggling dogs into England from  abroad is now quite a recognized industry, and well organized, remarked  a Customs' Officer at Dover, the other  day, to Mr. P. Doubreyou. There "arG  men at Calais, Dieppe and other continental ports, who will guarantee to get  any dog across the Channel.arid deliver him ;to any place in England'thai  may be agreed upon.  Their charges range high, from $108  to $250, according to the size aud breed  ot the animal, but wealthy dog-lovers  do not 'mind paying generously'-..in order to spare their pets the Igiiomy of  having to undergo three months''audis  antine and themselves the discomfort  ot being separated *f rom them during  all that long period..  Of course, there .are also pooplo "who  try to smuggle their dogs across ou  their own. They are usually women,  and 1 may add that they very rarely  succeed.  The big bag muffs now so popular  are the usual receptacles for small  toy dog. Only tho other day I had  my suspicions aroused by the exceedingly careful w.-.y a welhlressed lady  passenger was carrying one of these  down the gangway from ono of the  Chauuel mail steamers. Pretending  to stumble, I ;.tabbed the muff fairly  hard, and a������ 1 expected, a. yelp was  emitted from inside. , The lady dog  smuggler had to pay about $25 fines  and coats, and her pet went into quarantine after all.  Toy bulls are the easiest, dogs to  smuggle because they neve-.- bark. Wo  once found one of this particular breed  at tho bottom of a big Saratoga trunk  beneath a- pile of costly dresses. It  had evidently suffered considerably  from its prolonged confinement, in  fact it was half-suffocated; yet it never uttered a sound.  On another occasion the lid of a  cardboard box which was supposed to  coutaiu assorted French chocolates,  started bulging upwards in a strange  manner. On taking It off there emerged to view oae of the smallest black  pomerians I ever saw. It weighed  only three pounds, and was valued  by its owner at 500 guineas.  Actors aud actresses are among bhe  most persistent sinners in the matter  of dog smuggling. They run over to  Paris, or Vienna, or wherever it may  be, in order to fulfill a professional  engagement, and thoughtlessly take  their pets with them, ignoring or forgetting the regulations as to quarantine on readmissiou to the United  Kingdom.  Wealthy society women, too, mot infrequently suffer from similar lapses  of memory. It is people of this type  who patronize the professional dog  smugglers alluded io above. Many of  them don't mind what they pay. *  One high-born lady had her great  Dane brought over by aeroplane at a  cost of $100. This method of dodging  the customs authorities was a fairly  safe one at the time, for the new regulations governing the arrival of airmen from abroad were not then In.  force, but it by no means follows that  it is going to work equally well in tihe  future.  Another valuable dog, a St. Bernard,  was recently smuggled over In a tug  that had been specially chartered for  the purpose. The owner of the atr-jmal  met the captain by arrangement off  the Essex coast just outsit- the three-  mile limit, and transferred it to hia  private motor-boat which was then  run at top speed iuto one of the many  sheltered creeks that abound in the  estuary of the Thames. We heard  all about it soon afterwards, but we  could do nothing, as specific proof was  lacking.  Such methods, however, are too costly for.any but very wealthy people.  The usual plan, aud one very difficult  to circumvent, Is for the dog to be  entrusted to the care of some member  of the crew of one of the many small  foreign vessels that trace to this coun-  i.m.*m   **.t4-U   *������������������������ rt-v-rl/oil I-1it**n,1   tmia/I nr*r���������������/\\\ \/\r\ a  potatoes and such like.  The animal is allowed to range the  deck quite freely on arrival, no score,  bolng made of its presence on board.  But one night it is missing.

Elephants, too,  suffer greatly, but they-- are very amenable to medical attention.  "When the elephant falls seasick, a  bucket of fresh water, containing seven, ounces of quinine and three aud  one-half pints of whisky, is supplied.  Tlrds, howevei, delight lu sea voyages. Recently a number of English  songbirds, such as the lark and robin  were dispatched to British Columbia.  The polar bear, too, enjoys a sea  journey. He is described as very  gay while on board ship. But most  other animals greatly resent sea trips.  Do not allow worms to sap the vitality of your children. If not attended to, worms may work irreparable harm to the constitution of the  infant. The little sufferers cannot  voice their ailment, but thire are many  signs by which mothers aro made  aware that a dose ot Miller's Worm  Powder Is necessary. These powders act quickly and will expel worms  from the system without any incon-  venie:.c: to the child.  Birds Build Nest_ in Gourds  By hollowing out gourd? and suspending them from tre^s anl poles, an  Illinois farmer provides nesting plaets  for the native American birds, the  wren and the bluebird, and protects  them from the aggressive English  sparrow, which has a tendency to monopolize the desirable nesting place3.  The gourds designed for wrens have  entrace .*joles ab-*ut the sizri of a silver  qu..rter. This is sufficiently large for  a wren to poss through, but not larg>  enough for a sparrow.  The bluebird Is about tlu same size  as the sparrow, so a different arrangement was necessary. T_������- farmer  discovered that the English sparrows  would not use the gourls If they wero  placed in the sun, but that the bluebirds would. Secure nesting places  were therefore provided for the latter  by suspending the gourds from poleu  placed out in the open.  Minard's Liniment Cures Dandruff.

"Very well then," said the critic, "I  will remove it" And tbe next moment  he was striding up the aisle in his  .shirtsleeves.  , "That won't do, sirl" shouted.the attendant, running after him.  "Won't do?"1 exclaimed Shaw with  u uue uu-umption of indignation. "jl������o  you think I'm going to take off any  more?"
