Permit me to express my  opinion, which I presume is what you  desire, to the best of my ability.  Your golden Russets are very handsome applos for a russet, about as nice  ils I ever saw in nny.life. The Winter  Banana are certainly as magnificent as  ever grown pnywhere. The Grimes  Golden are also very fine in every respect. The Mcintosh Red are exceedingly fine, wonderfully colored. The  Rome Beauty is very handsome. The  Cox Orange Pippin is never a very  handsome apple but it is an apple that  lam very foiid of on account of its  excellent flavor. These are certainly  delightful to tbe taste. I like the taste  better than any other apple you feent  me." ; The Kings you sent are also  splendid and beantitully . colored.  Without knowing just what ^ouRniar-  kets require, iu other words I don't  know just what you could sell to tbe  best advantage, but simply speaking  011 the m'erits of the apples themselves,  & .~ -*  it would seem tome the varieties thet  vvptud" command attention   in a com-  mercial   way would   be the  Mcintosh  Real Gold*en Russett, WinterJganana,-  Kiil^s^R'ome Beauty, andiilso Grimes  Golc^nj.^prQviding^yt'U  have tpade for  thein.   The   Cox  Orango'"Pippin~a_T  l*ave said is ������, wonderf uiiy fine apple  hu,t I fear the demand will  be-limited  to  those   who  know its quality  and  plendid flavor.

Not  eccentric  or  childish?  Not at all; the sanest woman I ever  knew.      This from Wardrop.  Has she ever to your knowledge received any threatening letters?  Never in all her life, from both cf  them promptly.  You heard sounds, you. say. Miss  Fleming.   At what time?  About half past 1 or perhaps a tew  minutes later. The clock struck. -  while I was still awake and nervous.  This person who was walking  through the attics here���������would you  say it was a heavy person.���������a man, 1  mean?

As soon as Zam-Buk Is applied t������ _ wound or to a diseased  part, the cells beneath the skin's surface are so stimulated that new  healthy tissue Is quickly formed. This  forming of fresh healthy tissue from  below is Zam-Buk's secret of healing.  The tissue thus formed is worked up  to the surface and literally casts ofthe diseased tissue above it. This is  why Zam-Buk cures are permanent.  Only the other day Mr. Marsh, of  101 Delorimier Ave., Montreal, called  upon the Zam-Buk Co. and told them  thai for over twenty-five years he  had been a martyr to ecaema.

Well, it was originally started in order to return to the senders all letters, etc.,. addressed to people who  turned out to be dead. The need for  such an arrangement became evident  from, the number of valuable enclosures contained in such missives. And  that the old tradition still lingers in  the department is evident from the  fact that the bags containing returned  letters are black in color.  Yes, there are people who imagine  ug to be mysteriously connected with  death itself, and some time back we  received a peculiar letter from one of  them. Within a week of having a  letter returned to her a certain person living in the same house had  died, and consequently the writer, evidently associating her friend's death  directly with us, begged us in future  never to send, back letters again, but  to burn them instead.

"For three  years 1 was in tho Royal Mail service,  and in all kinds of weather had to  meet the night trains. Dampness,  coid, and exposure brought on sciatica that affected my left side. Some  times an attack would come on that  made me powerless to work. I was  so nearly a complete cripple that I  had to give up my job. I was In despair, completely cast down, because  ths money I had spent on trying to  get well -was wasted. I was speaking to my chemist one day, and he recommended 'Nerviline.' I had this  good liniment rubbed on several times  a day and got relief. > I continued this  treatment four months ahd was cured.  I have used all kinds, of liniments,  and can truthfully say t_at Nerviline  is far stronger, more penetrating and  infinitely better than anything else  for relieving pain. I urge everyone  with lumbago, neuralgia, rheumatism,  or sciatica, to use Nerviline.

Physicians have always studied the  pulse, becaut3*:_'t gives valuable information concerning the body's con_l-  tion of herdth or disease.- But it is  oniy recently that they have begun to  use the term blood pressure frequently, and to regard the amount of that  pressure as of great impdrtahce. That  is because they now have instruments  for accurately measuring the pressure  which previously they could only estimate by .feeling the pulse. :.,. ?       :y ������������������  .Blood pressure or the degree of tension of the?Jolood ?cui*rent within the  arteries is chiefly significant;because  a permanent increase In it is quite  sure to be followed in time by hardening of the arteries and by tha degeneration ordiseaSe of importaht organs,  especially the kidneys.  The blood pressure is increased by  a number of causes that increase the  force of the heart beat or that.contract the smaller blood vessels. Any  excitement���������anger, 307, fear, nervousness���������raises it temporarily. But tbat  is of little importance unless the emotion Is frequently repeated or unless  the person already has diseased arteries. The blood pressure that Is permanently high is more serious. That  comes from long continued mental excitement, such as worry, business anxiety or political strife or from tho action of certain- poisons that are formed In the system and not properly excreted.  These poisons come from the waste  products of digestion, especially In  largo meat eaters. They raise the  blood pressure by causlngTthe smaller  arteries to contract.  In small amounts these poisons are  excreted at once, but in persons who  eat large quantities of meat, especially of beef and mutton���������poultry "and  fish are less harmful���������-they ar������ sometimes formed in amounts so largo that  the kidneys, cannot dispose Of them  promptly. When this happens, especially if It occurs In a person who is  under a constant mental strain, liko  tho politician, th������ financier . or the  chronic worrier, there is grave danger  of a permanently hig_ blood pressure  and, following that, of hardening of  the : arteries and of kidney disease,  mental disturbance or apoplexy. *  If you must worry bo a vegetarian;  if you must eat meat do so only once  a day or, better still, every other day.  ���������J:i Stek-ead-ches���������neuralgic headaches���������splitting,  blinding headaches���������all vanish when you taka  Na-Dru-Co Heads-cite Wafers  They do not contain phenacetln, acetanDld,  morphine, opium or any ether dangerous drug.  25c. a box at your Druggist's, S23  Hational Dr-jo a Ohemicsl Co: spCara.*. umit-6.

They know very well that  so long as Mr. Borden retains  his present popularity and  continues to conduct the  affairs of the country in so  statesmanlike a manner' the  Liberal party is doomed to  wander in the cool shades  of opposition.

DONT LET CROPS ^F!OH"lV������  Professor Taylor of the. agricultural economics department  of the University of Wisconsin  agricultural experiment station  says no elngre farm /crop grown  ln Wisconsin beeps tbe farm labor busy all the time, but by a  proper combination of crops employment of labor can be extended materially throughout the  year. There are, however, limits  to diversification. For instance,  .coiii and tobacco require labor  ?at the same time for planting  and cultivation and are therefore competing crops, but tobacco furnishes winter employment to labor when there ls a  . scarcity . .of employment, and  therefore to this extent these  crops are noncompetlng or complementary. The; use' of non-  competing .crops. may well extend the operations of the farm.  ���������'���������^hTATSOM  (5 -- -- ���������  ATATIflM    Akin   OTftK.'  winaiwia    nitiur    *j i vrvsix.

Loss to  Saskatchewan Farmers  Regina, Sask.���������Hon   George   Lang-  iey, minister of municipal afEalrs for  Saskatchewan, in a characteristic interview today declared his conviction  that  the  establishment  of a  sample  market for gTaln in Winnipeg would  result in a great loss to the farmers  of    Saskatchewan.      This    statement  from the minister makes    it   certain  that the report of tho royal commission which is now being prepared hy  tho secretary,  A.   P. Mantle, will be  unanimous against the sample market,  all  the other members  of  tho royal  commission    having    previously    expressed their opinions on this important   subject.       Mr.   Langley   said he  was supported in his contention by an  overwhelming majority of the Intelligent grain   growers  of the province.  He stated that the loss to the farmers  of Saskatchewan from the  establishment of a sample market in Winnipeg  would amount to millions of dollars.  No Effective  Competition  In discussing the question Mr. Lang-  ley said:  "E. A. P. Partridge, of Sirat-  aluta,  an  eloquent advocate of sample market has said that British millers would be represented on such a  market iu Winnipeg and    that   there  Would be effective competition in the  purchase of wheat.   In reply to this I  would say that when I was in Great  Britain    Jast     summer    investigating  this question I asked the Vernon people and the Rankes. leading millers of  England,  and    other    largo    millers,  whether their    representative    would  come to Winnipeg    to    select    types  within tho grade.    I was never taken  seriously in this matter-    Tho Britls..  , millers   always   believed   that   I   was  I jesting.      Your Canadian wheat is it*  j self a type, they said.    I may also say  i that  I would not expect to see a slu-  | gle   Canadian   niillfc.   ou  a  Winuipeg  j sample  market  competing  for  wheat.  These  dealers  aro  all able  to select  ] their grain through their country ele-  ��������� ' vators.      T.*e only active Iruyers will  i be the men who are interested in mis-  I ing wheat  aud when    the    unlimited  I blending of grain is introduced, what  j- is know a as the high Hue of our wheat  ' wi'l be dt--stroved in    ail    the    higher  ��������� grades.    The  top   ^'i'i  disappear  and  ; the general" character of our product  I on t-*> foreign market will be chang-  | ed.    Tho  farmer will  suffer and will  not be aware of 1:.      In oue case out  i of ten a  producer  will get a cent a  busho! more or. the sample market as  ; a  premium i'or good grain within the  ) grade,  bus  as  a  result  of  mixing he  I will  lose this   cent  and  also another  '. cent a bushel while the remaining nine  1 farmers will lose two cents a bushel.  i The  oniy way  in which  the country  | could ascertain how much tho farmer  was losing would be io send certain  i large   quantities  of  graded   wheat  to  | the Old Cnuntry in its natural state  without   mixing.       It  would   then  become apparent how much loss was entailed through the process of mixing."  Fears Tie-Up of Traffic  Asked   what  effect    the    establishment ot a sample market would have  oa  the  transportation of    Saskatchewan wheat to the seaboard, Mr. Lang-  ley was still more emphatic.     I wouid  prefer,  he  said, not to  say anything  on the question ot transportation.    I  am not interested in railway companies.     I do not want even to appear to  be concerned about any railway. The  people  in whom I am interested are  the struggling farmers of Saskatchewan.     I have found that the railway  companies  are  quite able  to  protect  themselves and what  I  am  doing in  this matter is in the interests of our  grain  growers.      The  truth  is,  how-  over, tho truth, when all is said and  done.     In the name of all that is holy,  what tlie sample market    would    do  would be to bung    up    our    railway  transportation ten times worse than it  is ever bunged up now.     Our system  between Keglna    and    Fort   William  would  be right out on the hummer.  Even aftor the present great rush is  over I would anticipate very sorloua  trouble if this change is made.    The  congestion at Winnipeg might at any  time become hopeless and desperate  with great resulting loss to shippers.  J. II. Haslam, chairman of the commission, C. A. Dunning, vice-president  of    tho    Saskatchewan    Co-operative  Elevator   company, A. F. Mantle, deputy minister of agriculture, and othor members  of tho commission who  studied this question in Europe havo  already expressed thoir views on tho  sample market. Dr. Oliver, of tho university, who  was  also  in  the  party,  confined his work to tho    matter   of  farm credits and did not consider tho  grain trado.���������Tho "Free Press."  il wHEH':>������tfi^i'' <<s!_fcMa������ steei - ��������������������������� mMm^mBm mmmmMmmmi  nn  ii  Range you make a permanent  investment.

Life had lost its zest, work became impossible and companionship  intolerable. It really seemed that I  was swiftly passing to that stage  where nervousness ends and insanity  begins, when by chance I read an advertisement of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pilis. I confess I was skeptical of  them doing what doctors had failed  to do, but concluded that the cost was  small, and perhaps, the chance ln  their favor, and so decided to try  them. To my joy there was soon an  improvement, and a continuance of  the treatment effected a complete  euro. I was now as fit and as healthy as any man and am ever grateful  that the,lucky perusal of an advertisement brought to my notice tho wonderful curative properties of Dr. Williams   Pink Pills."

Recently. Lieut'v Hughes found a  hitherto uncharted creek which to the  surprise of all showed a depth of 60  feet of water along-side a precipitous cliff 45 feet high, a condition of  things unknown anywhere between  Sierra Leone and the Congo.  On this discovery being reported,  tho governor, in March last, commissioned the Director of Railways and  v_g _r,rector Cj. luaiiiis iu investigate  the matter, and as a result it was  established that the newly-discovered  creek, though not shown on any  map, is really the mat channel of  the Bonny River.  A remarkable series of cliffs extending for three-quarters of a mile  and averaging 45. feet above high  water was discovered among the  swamps. Opposite these cliffs soundings showed a tepth of 70, feet of  water. Armed with machetes, the  Director of Railways, the Director of  Marine, and the commander of the  Ivy landed, and by means of a rope  ascended the diffs and cut through a  section of almost impenetrable  growth twelve feet in height.  Lieut. Hughes then ascended a tree  to view the country. -A* few people  were met, and it was discovered that  no white man had been there before*  Further Investigation showed that  the, general conditions oi  me pj&cs  , --SSraCTS AS HEROES.

Mr. Churchill _ Hide io Bal���������ioral.  When Mr. Churchill arrived at  Perth recently on his way to Balmoral he leapt upon the platform  and called for the motor-car which  had been ordered to take him to his  destination. But the car could not  be found.  There was much commotion and  running about by flurried porters, but  Mr. Churchill, afraid he would be  late tor his important duties, could  not await the result of tbe search.  "I must be off," be exclaimed; "fl  have to be in attendance on the King  at 7.30 to-night," and ordering his  valet to throw his luggage into a  taxi-cab near at hand ho jumped in.  ���������'Where to, sir?" asked the driver.  "Balmoral," replied Mr. Churchill.  Fast traveling just enabled Mr.  Churchill to cover tbe sixty miles and  keep his appointment.  The car o.iginally ordered for Mr.  Churchul was waiting on the other  side of tbo station, and an amusing  feature of the incident was that a  cinematograph operator was standing by ready to record that part of  the First Lord's journey to Balmoral.

How  It came to be there is not known and  probably never will be known.  Last summer one of the many visitors to a popular seaside? resort on  the South Coast lost a five-pound  note. The loss was discovered at  dinner. The dinner-party immediately broke up and everyone went in  search of the missing fiver. Tho  owner thought she had had it with  her on-the beach, but as there were^  hundreds of persons on the beach  at the time she did not think it possible that it could -be there. Yet  there it was found; blowing about  the beach along with a number of  bits of unebnsidered waste^paper.  The party had been sitting together  in a circle on the beach, and their  chairs had not been.moved; the fiver  was being blown about ia the centre  of the circle. Hundreds of people  were on the beach at the time. A  few moments after the no'3 was discovered the Owner of the chairs came  .along to move his property out of  the way of the incoming tide.  A man whose lujck at finding property is quite uncanny once nearly  failed to live up to his reputation.  One day the spring in the hinge of his  cigarette-case got out of order, and  so prevented Che case from closing  properly. He always carried this case  and his - loose gold in his top right-  hand waistcoat'pocket. In pulling out  the case he inadvertently took out  three half-sovereigns with it, for the  case bad opened in his pocket and  the coins had become wedged in between the two sides of the case.  The half-sovereigns fell on the  pavement,? and, although the night  was dark, the man. recovered two of  tbe coins. The next day' his friends  chaffed him on his change of luck,  i but the laugh was sobix with him,  for on opening his umbrella he had  the- pleasure of seeing the missing  half-sovereign Jail at his feet.  A man once put "a sovereign on the  top of a bill which he intended to  pay, and placed the bill with the "coin  on a table. He was called away suddenly, and when he returned the sovereign had gene.  Some weeks. afterwards the sovereign was found .under a large book-  ease, and at the same time the real:  culprit was detected. The household  dog, a large, Newfoundland, "had  strolled in through the window and  had swished the coin off the table  Exterminating Wasps.

They were conviots, imprisoned in the great American convict  prison of Sing Sing, which stands on  the bank of the Hudson River, above  N*6w Yorit  It was on July 23rd last that this  fire broke out In the prison workshops and raged furiously. But for  the splendid work of two hundred  "trusties"���������-as they call the good  conduct men���������the whole prison  might have been destroyed.  But do not Imagine that pluck of  this kind belongs exclusively to the  American criminal. "In October,  ig/jK ������ new ���������'overnor, Mr������ George  Clifton, was appointed to Dartmoor  prison in England, and on the very  day tbat he arrived the governor's  house which stands on the right i  ii<i���������^ aijjg $jf *he "*riso_ ������-ate as you I  face It, caught fire. As Mr. Clifton  drove up, the roof and attic were "all  ablaze.  ' The chief warden had already collected a gang of about thirty trustworthy men, and set them to work  with buckets. There is a pond just  across the .road, and they formed a  chain and passed the buckets like  lightning. "No free men," said an  eye-witness, "could bave worked  harder, and as for those who were  on the ladder they never flinched  although showers of sparks were  beating down upon them and burning boles in their clothes.  They worked so well that they got  the names under, but some were so  exhausted that they had to be helped  back to their cells.  Ore man named Newbrook fainted, and was taken to the hospital.  He was 'delirious that night and  could not leave his bed for more  than t_r_e weeks.  "Again in February, 1895. the  wash-house at Dartmoor prison  caught fire, but thanks to the splendid conduct of the prisoners"���������as  the governor wrote in his report-���������  the flames were got under before  serious damage was done.  On March 10th, 1891, there fell  upon the south of England the worst  blizzard of snow ever recorded. On  the heights of Dartmoor the gale  raged furiously for three days, the  cold was terrible, the drifts were  pilod forty feet deep, and did not  melt until the following June.  On the 13th the sheep began to  die. Two prisoners asked to see the  governor, and volunteered to ieadja  party to rescue the poor creatures.  Some forty convicts joined them, and  armed with shovels cut their way  through the huge drifts amid tho  stinging^ice blast,. and succeeded ti.������_  great risk to themselves in rescuing  nearly all the flock. 7      "'"'���������'  !  Many a convict has risked his life  In helping a warder attacked ?by  some prisoner who has suddenly  run amok. At Portland, some few  years ago, was a man whom we will  call Thomson, who was noted and  feared for his mad fits of rage.       '  He had already got into trouble  for throwing a bath plug at tho  governor, and for attempting to assault a warder witb bis own baton.  On tbe latter occasion it took three  warderi to get him down.  One day, one of the principal warders was quietly going his afternoon  rounds, and presently entered ' the  laundry where Thomson was at  work. Without the slightest warning, Thomson sprang upon bim like  a maniac and hit him oyer the bead  witb a heavy Iron spanner.  The warder dropped like a stone,  but Thomson, not satisfied with.what  he bad done, was about to hit him  again, when a quiet elderly convict  who was working near by rushed at  the lunatic, collared him, and threw  him down.  Before Thomson could get up. a  second convict camo to the help of  tho first, and between thom they  managed to overpower the kicking,  cursing, biting brute.  The Defect In His Dressing.

The bet was mado, and the  following day Sir Georgo appeared at  tbe barracks not with a sharp terrier  but a lanky and thin retrlovor pup  which was greeted with roars of  laughter by the officers. Quito unperturbed by tbelr mirth Sir Georgo  turned to his man and said, "Put him  in, John." John put the retriever ln  the barrel, not head 'ret as was expected, but tall flrst. Tho badger  selKod the tall, and tho dog rushing  off drew the badger with him, and  was half-way across the barrack  squaro before tho officers realized  how cleverly Sir Georgo had won the  bet.

Thieves Specialize Nowadays;   Some  Prefer Mantelpieces, '  The science of,crime is becoming  as highly specialized as that of medicine. The clever criminal of to-day  believes in getting off the beaten  track.   He invents his own "line."  .The latest specialist In England is  the mantelpiece thief, who removes  valuable eighteenth-century mantelpieces from old houses, and sells  them to & receiver who has on his  books curio collectors who are willing to pay high prices for good an-  tiques without asking questions.  He began his work in London only  a few weeks ago, but already three  West-end mansions bave been robbed  o'f mantelpieces worth several hundreds" apieo������, awhile three Georgian  mantelpieces have disappeared in one  day from an old house in Lincoln's  Inn Fields that is being converted into offices.  The motive that moves the theft  specialist is often very obscure. Six  years.ago, for instance, most of the  big London hotels were on the?watch  for the door-mat thief. In the space  of two months there was hardly a  famous hotel in London, but suffered.  The thief -was evidently no. ordinary doormat thief, for. he confined his  attention strictly to hotels (which,  ot course, put their names on their  mats, thus' making them unsalable).,  and only to those whose names are  known all over the world. The specialist ended his operations as suddenly as he began -7- without bei_������  caught. The mats stolen, by the way,  were the huge mats at the entrance  halls. ���������   ���������    ��������� 'i' '?'.  The thief's doings puzzled all London, and the only likely suggestion  made was that he was acting on a  commission from some wealthy American souvenir hunter.  The 'Valuable sta^oed-glass of  England's old churches is finding its  .way bit by bit out of the courntTy.  There are known to be at least two  small gangs who devote their talents  solely to this profitable branch of  crime. Lost pieces have been identified In America, and none is ever offered for sale to" English dealers.  Several rewards areron offer for the  capture of the thieves who have during the past five years despoiled English churches bf wh<,+ are in many  cases their mos.. valuable treasures.  Really old stained glass fetches Very,  high prices owing to its rarity,; as  in the seventeenth century, Cromwell'- soldiers smashed thousands of  church window's aii over the king-*  dom.  "Burglary and housebreaking have  several branches. Some burglars are  "porch-climbers," and never tackle a  house unless ii has a porch from  which access can be got to the first-  floor windows.  Some burglars specialize in flats,  and their latest dodge is to ring up  the flat by telephone in order to see  whether the tenant and his family  are out. If the rihger-up gets an answer, he merely asks if that is Mr,  So-and-So, inventing *-"ome nam**- and  when told It Is not, rings off.  The Toothbrush.  The daily treatment of the  teeth consists of washing and  brushins* The toothbrush Is n  very important instrument, which  should be sterilized both before  and after using. As soon as the ^  bristles wear or begin to 'drop <������  out It is time for a new brush. ������*���������  You really need a new brush  once a month. In selecting your  toothbrush remember tbat it is  not simply to rub or polish the  enamel or remove the food from  between the teeth, but it is also %���������  intended to stimulate tbe gums. %  Therefore it should not be too s  stiff. ������  THE DOUBLE RED CROSS.  Emblem.of Anti-tuberculosis Workers  All Over the World.  The double red cross, the symbol of  ths war against tuberculosis,, was firs*,  adopted as the symbol of the International Anti-tuberculosis association in  Berlin in October, 10Q2. The proposes  of the symbol was Dr. G. Sersiron of  Paris, who is now associated secretary  of L'Association Centrale Francais*  Centre !_ Tuberculose.  Today the emblem is being used by  anti-tuberculosis workers in every pari  of the world, even in Iceland. India,  South Africa, Labrador, Japan. China  and the Philippines. The double red  cross ia similar in shape to a-cross  used frequently in the Greek Catholic  churches and also to the Lorraine cross  of France. All of the arms of the  cross are pointed, tbe two cross., arms  being of the same length. The width  of the cross is taken as the unit in determining the proportions. The length  of the lower arm is seven writs, the  arms are three units on either side, the  point above the arms two and a baM  units and the distance between tlw  arms one and a half units. These  measurements hold good for any size.  In the United States over 1,200? antituberculosis associations and committees, nearly 550 sanitariums and hospitals, ?400. dispensaries and about 200  open air schools, besides a number of  other organizations, are using the double red eress as their emblem. Wherever it is seen it means war against  tuberculosis.  SPEEDY  P!TC*H5NG=  She Saw Him Passing By.
