All the lumps in the room were o_t, the  -i  only ilUiuiiaatIon being the candle, on  the tree.   The tree  was very  tastefully  dressed with glass ornaments,silver tin  gel; small oiM.nges,   bags of  candy  and  oraokers and was topped off with a large  Union Jack.. The tree stood  nearly 12  feet high.   A large  mass  of  presents  -were placed  ml round the  base of the  tree,*5 giving  it a   very  cheerful look.

The whole house was kept laughing  from the beginning to the end, and tbe-  apFlause at the conclusion, spoke eloquently of what the audience tuGught  of the piece.

Two carloads of lumber arrived here  on Wednesday for different men in the  district.      .7  A thpsfc enjiyable dance was given on  ALICE   SIDING  NEWS  a  The  Dance given  by Alice  Siding  Sooial   Club,   Saturday   night  was a  great success there being about 65 present including a good crowd from Creston. Erickson, and Duck Creek.   Dancing was kept up ti^J 12 o'clock,  inter-  ti spersed with singing, when supper was  'served   by the   ladies.   Games,.songs,  recitations, aiid dialogues lasted until  3 o'clock.   A   very   amusing  incident  occurred   while playing   the Donkey  i?gar_e,  each player being;? blindfolded  .in turn   and taking   a tail, with   a pin  'sticking    through   it,    after...' turning  ^around two or three times, try to pin  a tail on   to the   picture of a tailless  donkey,  in the right place-.   It is very  amusing but when it was pinned on to  Scotty's chin it was more.than funny  "ti Two new   namesswere   added to the  Club, A. L. Doherty and Frank Martin  being the new members.  Don't forget the dance at the Club  J3o-se5 New Years Eve. /Wm. Johnson is Floor Manager, Bill has to have  a hostess to look after the ladies and so  will want a wife before New Years.  Girls this is your chance.  The Alice Siding people turned out  en masse for the Christmas tree at  Duck Creek.  The ice is busy  with skates now.  The Club Room was very tastefully  decorated for the dance, for which a  "few of the ladies deserve great credit  ihe mmm m:  GO-l-6 SATURDAY  rf mvmw rir  Wa.

Such a vehicle is "TheMissouri  Girl," which played   a return   engagement at the Majestic on Saturday evening.  ��������� From fcheris to the fall of the cur"  tain; thelargeandap-preoiativeaudience  thoroughly   enjoyed   Mr.    Fred   Raymond's pastoral comedy.    The play   itself is typically a southern rural  one,  and the various characters   are   ppi'r  trayedby the members of the company,  in such an excellent and capable manner that it is difficult to single any one  character  for   special   mention.    The  honors are equally-shared between Mr.  Fi'iXnk Fai-ir-ell and Miss Juiiureu  Foru.  The former as Zeke Dobson and   Miss  Ford as Daisy con vnlsed   the   adienee  and at time the players were compelled  to wait unfcilthe laughter ceased before  continuing their lines.    Wm. Milliken  asCiil. Sweatman handled the part   as  if to the manner born, a_3  indeed   all  the members of  the   cast   accredited  themselves exceedingly well.  From the comments madeat the close  of the performance, it is safe to predict that if "The Missouri Girl'.' elects  to play here again next season, they  will be accorded a very fiatteringrecop-  tion.

Thegieater part of the grain in the  West was harvested under ideal conditions last fall and little difficulty  should be met with in getting seed of  strong vitality. Notwithstanding thte  there are some individuals and even  sections of the Western Province that  were not so fortunate at harvest time  and now have seed of doubtful vitality  in their granaries for the spring seeding.  Seed ot strong vitality make a good  ���������stars, helps to keep down the weeds and  finally gives the big yield; while seed of  pour vitality ia a Sure loss.

Too often seed that is badly  contaminated with weed seeds is sown.  Every year the proportion* of Western  wheat and oats which contains wild  oats is increasing.

Farmers who have olean farms, or  farms free from some of the most'troublesome weeds���������wild oats, stiukweed,  falsoflas, ball mustard, tumbling- mustard, etc. should be very carefnl to sew  only clean seed.  , The Seed Laboratory at Calgary is at  the disposal of the farmers or the public  and it is hopod that thoy wiU make uae  of it in their efforts to obtaina pure seed  supply.  Iu former years most of the samples  have como in to bo tested in March and  April, overtaxing the oapacity of the-  Laboratory  and sometimes   causing a  delay in reporting on the samples.

1 remember one London critic telling me, writes E. N. in the Birmingham Post, how* he had wired to a Glasgow paper the news that the great
ITikisch had just arrived and would
conduct tho London Symphony orchestra on such and such a date. The
telegraph ipera'tor, a3 usual, spoiled
tbe unfamiliar namo along the line of
least resistance. Tho Glasgow subeditor, not being a musical man. bad
never heard oi Nikisch. but as the adjective "great' was prefixed io the
name, he naturally assumed that he
must be a Scotchman, so the Glasgow-
public was informed the next day that
the great McKish had arrived in London.
I remember also a London colleague

say that Andre-.v .Black had sung:

saying*, and a famous doctor once recommended one of his patients to try
a course of funny stories. The patient, who was suffering from a nervous.' breakdown through overwork,

brought him round. The menu recommended was one tunny story at
each meal with two extra at dinner.

stopped by a sen ti roi who demanded

he handed up Lis ticket of admission
to the hospital. While the- German

liim through iho head and galloped oft',

in Lho operations of Faldliorbo's army

Genesis of t!it Phonograph
As long ago as 1895 Sir W. H.
Preeee, then director of the. British
postofflce telegraphs, sent messages |
without wires across the sound of
Mull when the submarine cable was
broken down. Sir William was also
present at the birth of the phonograph
and in 1877 he spent Independence
day with Edison at his house in New
York, and in discussing the telephone
he remarked to the great American inventor: Then if what you say is true
it will bo possible to reproduce the
human voice. Edison shut bis eyes
and said nothing, and the conversation
changed. On the voyage homo Sir
William worked out a phonograph in
thoory, but, not being a mechanic h*?
loft.it as an idea. In less than a
month Edison sent Sir William
preeee a phonograph, the first that
camo to England.

Eyes of the Starfish
At the end of each arm in the common starfish there is a little red eyo.
It is sheltered at the base of the terminal tube foot which has become altogether sensory.   The eye or eye cushion shows little cups each closed by
a lens lined by red, rodlike sensory .=:
cells, clothed externally by. supporting j
cells and containing a transparent watery  substance.  -   liellmuth  Plessner
made a number of experiments at Heligoland in order to discover how much
a starfish sees with these eyes or eyo
spots.   The answer is, not very much.
It does not form nn imago nor does it
perceive a moving object.     But it has
considerable sensitiveness  In--distinguishing different degrees of light and
shade.     Even the skin of the starfish
is responsive to differences of illumination iu the immediate vicinity, but by
means of its eyes the starfish becomes
aware of distant illumination that differs,  either  positively  or  negatively,
from that of the immediately surrounding tr.r.pa.

But they  worked secretly, and I knew nothing  about what they were doing, nor did  I receive any information upon this  till a man of the name of Coyne was  arrested for the murder and held for  trial. There was a lot of circumstantial evidence against him. Mr. Ackers bad owed him some money, which  Goyns had vainly, tried to got. Coyne  ���������had been heard to use violent language  to Ackers. Indeed, a threatening lct-  -cer from the former was found among  tho latter's papers.

He began life in his father's  office.     But of that  he  soon  grew*  weary.    Then he   tried   the   Stock  Exchange for a few years, but with  ill success, and it was not until 1884  that he found his true vocation, and  entered as a student at the Middle  Temple.    But at this date, after all,  his varied experiences,   he   was   no  older than many ether entrants from  the universities, for he was only 24, j  and was but 27 when he was called1  to the Bar and joined the Northern  Circuit.    His flrst big case was as a  junior    in    the    Cbetwynd-Durham \  suit, which was heard in 1891. Then j  Yno   acquired   a    reputation   among "\  ! counsel as one who knew the City ?  1 and finance.    He became a specialist  in commercial cases.     But   his   advocacy was found equally convincing  in almost any class of trial, and by  the close   of   the   'nineties   he   was ���������  universally spoken of as tbe coming ,  man at the Bar, arid there were the*]  usual guesses at the fabulous income .;  which    rumor    declared  him  to   be ;  : {making.    Like so many other eminent harristers, Sir Rufus had an infinite capacity for work.    He never  ���������spared    himself,   yet    was    always  eager, alert, active^  and alive.    He  took  silk   in   1898,   and-when   Mr.  Justice Bigham  was  raised  to    tbe  Bench   it   was   to Mr. uufus Isaacs  that the reversion of his magnificent  commercial practice fell.    Two years  later Sir Edward Carson became Solicitor-General,  which     meant    that  another series of   eminently   lucrative briefs   were   brought   his way."  His advocacy waa  of a high order. .  Its  secret   was    its    persuasiveness.

A hobble underwear apparel is tha  latest fad in tbe lingerie world, exam,  pies of these unique garments having  been exhibited in New York shops re.  cently. The new lingerie is in ad e of  the thinnest fabrics to be found, the  materials most in use being silk crape,  chiffon cloth and finely woven silk.  Fine iinen, which formerly was considered the daintiest of ail for underclothing, is seen no more.  The new bobble style is essential  with the fashionable dresses, which  fit the figure so close at the hips, knees  and ankles tbat a petticoat, however  sheer, shows its outlines through the  gown.  One of the oddest of tbe fashionable  combination suits was "of thin pink  crepe de chine, made to be worn with  a bust supporter and no corset unless  possibly a webbing hip reducer. The  upper part of the hobble garment waa  lace edged, and it was fashioned all in  one piece, the skirt part reaching just  below the knees, where it was drawn  into an elastic band about an inch and  a half in width. This band was just  long enough to dispose of the slight  fullness in the combination and to  hold it close to the body.

French  j by birth, he remained, to the day of  1 his death, French in his method ot  formation of opinion, in bis outlook  on life, in the peculiar quality of his  wit.    It was   this that   enabled,   or  rather   obliged,   him    to    take  that  curiously detached,...view   of English  ideals which was at times so disconcerting even to those who thought  that they understood him."

When, a very young man he courted  and won the "hand of the youngest  paid most talented daughter of that  famous French-Canadian reformer,  Papineau. She died in 1869, after  twelve years of a happily married  life, and Bourassa, still a young man,"  threw himsel������ heart and soul into  painting. He studied for some tinae  under the late Thcophille Hamel^at  Quebec and Toronto, and was later  for three years at Florence and  Rome. During this time he was much  with Oyerieck. the German" religious  painter, and followed" his -methods  closely. In 1880 he was chosen by  '.���������ihe Marauis of Lome as a member of  'the newly-established Royal Academy  of Arts, and. served as its vice-president.  The church of Notre Dame ue  Lourdes^ Montreal, is an example of  his powers as architect, painter and  decorator, and even in' recent years  he has designed many fine churches  in Canada and the United States.  Mr. Bourassa is not unknown to  French-Canadian literature, and ls  the author of "Jaques et Marie," an  historical romance relating to the departure of the unhappy Acadians in  1755, as well as several volumes of  lectures. At the age of eighty-five he  -is-stm hale and hearty.

Ono day ho was introduced  by M. de Lauren to Mme. du Def-  fand, a blind lady, who was in the  habit of passing hor handa over tho  features of her renowned contemporaries when introduced to her in order  to get an idea of their appearance.  Gibbons received theso marks of attention, offering bis race to tho exploration of the blind lady's fingcra  with a delightful franknenn.  "Mmo. du Deffand passed hor fingers over his chubby faco carefully.  She did her utmost to discover some  othor outstanding trait than the pair  of abnormally developed cheoks, but  all to no purpoae.

B. Rushing in tbe Iowa j  Homestead.    The size will depend al- I  together upon the capacity of the farm  and the number of cows to be sheltered.   My ideal is the basement barn,  or, in other words, to build the barn  on a hillside or some way that leads  to a second story.,   In this way ventilation and doorways may be had in  tbe sides and end of the barn.  The walls of the basement may be  made of stone or brick, or if this cannot be afforded a wall under tha side  tbat stands next the bill may be constructed and the other three sides be  made of framing. Many prefer the  cement walls, which are cheaper than  the rock or brick, as a man can build  a cement wait himself, which will save  all expense, except for the material.

Of the Herd fourteen  cows produced twenty-eight quarts  of milk each in a day, eight cows  surpassed thirty-two quarts, two  cows surpassed thirty-six quarts  and one cow surpassed forty quarts  In a day. The picture shows a pure  bred Holstein.  L  be well ventilated.   It should also have  a sound floor.  The cows that are forced to stand in  a dark, dirty stall cannot be expected  to produce as much milk nor milk that  will have the wholesome qualities as.,  the cow that is furnished with a well  lighted, airy stall, one that has windows; to admit the sunlight and one  that the foul air of the stable is re-'  placed by tbe good, pure air. without  subjecting the cow to injurious drafts.

He Used  His First Draining .Tube on  Queen Victoria.  A strange anecdote is related ln the  life of Lord ^Lister by Dr.. G. T.  Wrench, it seems that Lister actually  used Queen Victoria as the first subject of one of his great experiments. :  Shortly after taking' up the chair of  surgery in Edliiburgh. according to-  Dr. Wrench, Lister was called to Balmoral to operate on the queen for nn  abscess. Dr. Wrench goes on to say:  "Tbe operation was successful. Lister  l"������nt "In a strip of carbolic lint to keep  the wound open for drainage. Out. unfortunately, the matter of the abscess  did not come away properly, aud the  queen was stilt feverish and In pain.  "Lister, disturbed by this unfavorable course, walked alone lu the  ���������������������������rounds of Balmoral, "a lonely walk  being bis custom when he had a difficult problem to solve. During his  cogitations It occurred to him that a  piece of India rubber tubing might  form an excellent path of exit to the  discharge of a wound. It Is illustrative of Lister's bold faith In himself  that, though his patient was tbo highest lady-In the land, ho did not hesl-  tiito to mnke licr tho first subject of  his experiment.

Tho  price of* eggs has also moved steadily  upwards. Department of agriculture  officials declare that cold storage is  responsible for the high prices. Figures issued recently by the census bureau show that in 1899 American hens  laid 1,293,662,000 dozen eggs, which  was seventeen dozen for every man,  woman and child i^ the country.  In 1909 they produced 17.3 dozens  per capita, while this year it is estimated that they will produce 17.8 doz-  pes per capita.  As to prices the statistics show that  irr. 1S99 average best fresh eggs sold  wholesale in New York, highest price  at 36 cents, in 1904 at 47 centsj in  1908 at 55 cents, in November, 1912,  at 60 cents. Last month they were  55 cents.  Department offlci���������ls expressed the  opinion that there should be a national law limiting the time which eggs  may he kept in cold storage, sis  months probably being the limit. This  they said, would put eggs on the  market more uniforn. . ^and prevent  them from being held for exorbitant  prices. Further^ It was declared that  shipments of eggs from o:rt state to  another, except to retail dealers,  should be prohibited in order to prevent evasion of the proposed storage  limit lav,-.

I could scarcely; get in a  day's work before that knifing, cruel  painwould attack my back. I used  a gallon of liniments; not one of them  seemed penetrating ������_oug_ to get at  tho core of the pain. I read in the  Montreal Witness about Nerviline, and  got flvo bottles. It is a wonderful  medicine���������I could feel ita soothing,'  pain-relieving action every time it waa  applied. When I got the disease under control with Nerviline. I bnilt np  my strength and fortified my blood  by taking "en-ozone at meals. This  treatment cured me permanently, and  I urge everyone to give up the thick,  white, oily liniments they are "using,  and try an up-to-dato, penetrating,  pain-destroyer like Nerviline.

Friday street is one of the most interesting and ancientof the thoroughfares of London. As long ago as  1305 a.reference to it appears in the  City records, and even then it was probably old. Close by? it stood the  Nag's Head tavern, which is famous  in history as the pre'eended scene of  the consecration of Matthew Parker,  archbishop of Canterbury, in the reign  of Queen Elizabeth.  The name of Friday street is derived from tha fact that In medieval  time:; many fishmongers resided there  and held their Friday market in the  vicinity. By a strange contrariety  ���������-of nomenclature the Wednesday clnb  met at a hostelry in the street, and  there in 1695, under the direction of  William -Paterspn, discussed at great  length ths'proposals which eventuat"  ed In the establishment of the Bank of  England.  Origin of the Drama  The drama,  In the only sense in  which it is worth talking about, had  its origin In Greece immediately following tho defeat of Darius and Xerxes, about B.C. 460.      Tts birthplace  was Athens, and Its fathers were Aeschylus  and Aristophanes���������Aeschylus  of tragedy and Aristophanes of comedy.   When tho   Greek   and   Roman,  civilization   went  into  eclipse  under  the black cloud of, northern barbarian-  "��������� ism the thea'tre, as with nearly every-  ^y thing else, became extinct, hut during  =    the middle ages acting was in a measure resumed in the form of the Moralities, or moral plays of the ecclesiastics, and it was from such plays  that the  modsra  drama  was  slowly  evolved.  An Old Ruse  Tlio influence of women in Louis  X.Ws day wan all powerful. The men,  i.n conseciuence, feared them,  came tbe fashion for women to dash  about Paris in cabriolets, driving often -somewhat rashly, and Increased accidents were put down to this cause.  Gabriel do Sarthieg, .minister of po-  ��������� lice, dared not forbid any woman to  drive in Paris, so he caused an edict  to bo issued prohibiting their doing  so until they wero forty years old. After this declaration, notes Mrs. Beanie  in 'A Cnirt Palntor and His Clrclo,"  thoro was not a cabriolet to bo seen  drlvon by a woman.  Children Often Seem Pining Away  and Ordinary Medicine Does  Not Help Them -  The health of children between the  ages of twelve and eighteen years, particularly in the case of girls, is a  source of serious worry to ��������� nearly  every mother. The growth and development takes so much of their  strength that in many cases they actually seem to be going into a decline.  The appetite is fickle, brightness gives  Way to depression; there are often  serious headaches, fits of dizziness, or  occasional fainting and a complaint  of weariness the slightest exertion^  Ordinary medicines will hot bring relief. The blood has become thin and  watery, and the child must have something that will bring the blood back  to it^ normal coadition. At this stags  no otber medicine can equal Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Their whole mission is to make new blood, which  reaches every part of tho body, bringing back health, strength and energy.  Mrs. James Harris, Port Rowan, Ont.,  says: "At the age of thirteen my  daughter began to look very pale, and  seemed listless and always tired. She  did not take interest in her schcol  ���������work or in thoso amusements of girlhood. In fact. ehe just seemed to  drag herself about," complaining of always being tired; did not eat well,  and did not sleep well at night. I took  her to our doctor who said she was  anaemic, aud advised me to give her  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. She took  tlio Pills for nearly two months, when  j she was as well and lively as any girl  T(. , could bo, gained nicely in weight, and  has sinco enjoyed perfect health. I  am quito sure that what tho Pills did  for my daughter they will do for other  pale, weak girls. J havo also used  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills myself with  the test results and can only speak of  them iu tormt of greatest praise."

Wonderful Rose Gardens  In the outskirts of the city of Lyons  in sunny France, are the most wonderful res? gardens in the world.  There a great flat stretch of land ls  set out in countless rows of the queen  of flowers, all a-bloom, variegated in  color and perfume.

One cannot gaze  upon this wondrous scene, without  breathing a fervvent thanksgiving that  there are in the world, such beautiful  things as roses.  ,-'������������������-��������� Morsls of Christabel  Savage attacks havo been made in  some of the British papers and i i  some American papers on the articles  which Christabel Pankhurst has been  running in The Suffragette on the dangers of marriage. "They have been accused of immorality and indecency.  Certainly they are neither immoral or  indecent. They are perfectly straightforward, and also in substance they  are entirely true, constituting a needed and valuable warning, and increase  the pressure of mo:i to improve in  sympathy with women and in restraint. The criticism to which they.  are fairly open is. thatr.they resemble  the articles on drink which tho 'early  prohibitionist used to have printed.

Distinctive Ores, in England  At Coutts' bank the clerical assistants must all wear frocks, and no  one in the employment of tha bank is  allowed to go about with hi3 trousers  turned up. At Hoare's bank it is the  custom of all those employed to wear  whiti ties. Members of the legal profession observe the etiquette of their  calling by abstaining from the wearing  of light or fancy colored clothes and  always wear silk hats. The beadles,  of some Presbyterian churches in England wear dress suits instead of the  Anglican cassock. Some brewerfe'  workmen and draymen wear scarlet  knitted wool nightcaps. In fact, nearly every trade and profession has its  own conventions and unwritten laws  concerning the dress of its members.

France's Foreign Legion  The French. 7*ore". . legion, which  is always tho cause of so much bad  blood in Germany, is the only regiment of its kind in existence. Tt date3  from 1831, when France undertook the  conquest���������of Algeria. . It consists of  two regiments, each four battalions  strong, drawn from all the adventurers of Europe. It is popular not only  because no questions are asked, but  because promotion is open to all, within limits, and a certain number of the  officers have risen from tho ranks.  All classes are to he found among its  members and all nationalties, but the  many Germans do not describe themselves as such���������they are all Alsatians. Tho reason for its continued  existence is that France cannot spare  Its men nor send enough who would  leave the comforts of civilsization for  the wastes of Africa or t1- j swamps  of Tonkin.  THE GIRL  BREAD-WINNERS  What a change has taken place  within the last quarter of a century in  the method of life of the daughters in  the family f From the quiet and se-  c^uded- horns the .girls: have gpno..out.  to office, store or factory, to mingle  with the great crowd of workers, and  whether by brain or muscle to feel the  strain: arid fatigue of the bread-winner.  This revolutionary change in the  method?of life has not proved beneficial to health and vigor, and in tho  {Surging crowd you find many a pale,  anaemic face, and many an emaciated  figure.  The blood gets thin and watery, the  digestive system becomes' deranged,  the appetite fails, and the starved  nerves tell of their condition by neuralgic pains . -1 bodily aches.

English Harvest Feasts  The feasts that now take place at  the close of the harvest season in England are small affairs compared with  ���������Uie old fashioned harvest suppers held  .formerly. In some of the northern  counties the farmers would give churns  of cream, and it was servved out in  cups to the laborers. Nowadays a  glass of ale or cider is the substitute  for the old time feast. In some parts  of the north of Ireland the ancient custom, still lingers as the churn supper.  A very old custom is the baking of a  largo cake by the farm r's wife. This  is cut up and served out to every one,  including children, accompanying the  horkey cart, into tlu farmyard. The  horkey cart was the cart on which  the last load of the season was drawn.  57v������frs -rs?tf\-sn  LIFE INSURANCE ���������0=  Assets   $3,500,000.00  insurance   $18,500,000.03  ABSOLUTE       Security,  for  Policy   Holders  Excelsior    Policy   Forms    Approved    by  Dominion   Insurance   Department'  For Agenotes apply to Provincial Office*  at      Winnipeg,     Edmonton,      Saskatoon,  Vancouver,  or Head Office,  Toronto.  frXVKI *i_  ^:Y-v^d::5Kipp!^  WnfandAhxandenWlffllPEG.

In the DemidoiF garden at Pratolino,  some eight or ten miles from Florence,  there still crouches the monster in  stone aud stucco called tbe "Appen-  uino," once the glory of tbe famous  Medici garden. Some sixty or seventy  years ago the statue was more talked  of. but nowadays it appears tbat few  fol_ know or care for such things. Itt  is a good specimen of Its style, and a  reminder of Its existence is just as  well. - Its lieigbt, if erect, would be  about 100 feet, or say one-fourth the  Ucisbt of St. Paul's cathedral. At tbe  LicicU oue cud enter into -rustic grottoes  built iuto its interior, and from underneath the bair of tbe head a cascade  may be made to Bow forth at will over  tbe shoulders and body of the colossus,  creating a sparkling effect in the sunshine.  BuontalentI, the protege of Cosimo  di Medici, who schemed this gigantic  tbing in 1569. employed tbe best talent available for the setting of it up,  sculptors, masons, etc., and we are told  tbat its abnormal size led to some of  tbe artists losing all sense of proportion and being rendered unfit for ordinary work, one of them losing his reason as a consequence of helping to  build the monster.  Tbe audacity of tbe conception 18  worthy of the great genius, wbo. trained under the eye of Michelangelo?  hesitated nt nothing, knowing that  tbo Medici money wns at his back and  he had only to ask when n daring Idea'  of his needed funds. ,  This famous boy Bernardo (BuontalentI) seems In his day to have out-'  shone tho Admirable Crlchton. being  painter, ecu-lptor, architect, engineer  and mecbanclun and much besides.-*  London Sphere.
