Upon Mothers especiallj'- devolves a great responsibility as their daughters approach womanhood. The following  truthfully story' told a reporter of  the Sun by Mrs. O. Herman, of Third  Avenue, Orangeville, carries a lesson  to other mothers. Mrs. Herman said:  '"About fifteen months ago my 'daughter, Kate, while attending the public  school studied hard. We noticed that  she Began to complain of headaches,  This was followed by a listlessness  and an utter indifference to things  that usually interest young girls. We  consulted a doctor, and she took bottle after bottle of 'medicine, 'but with  no benefit.

It is because they make rich, red blood and  strengthen the nerves with every dose  that they cure such troubles as anaemia, consumption in..its early;  stages, nervous headache. St. Vitus'  dance, rheumatism.partial paralysis,  ki'dnoy trouble, indigestion, etc. Ordinary medicines merely act upon the  symptoms of the trouble, and when  such medicines are discontinued the  trouble returns often in an aggravated form. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills on  the contrary go direct to the root of  the trouble and eyre to stay cured.  See that the full name, "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People," is  found  on the wrapper   of. every box.  Story of  a -str-itl-tvon-i Trooper.  t They following is a clipping from  an English paper containing an anecdote about a Strathcona trooper,  a young ' British officer, "Col.

The  story  is   as  follows:, _      _>  , Tho ��������� British had reached the Cro-  .codil'c River after .three weeks'.hard  fighting, and the men were informed, that thoy might go' to''the river  to bathe. ', One young officer,' however, appeared on the ground as  spotless as if on parade and : with  an eyeglass-stuck'in his eye. ��������� He  wsis calling here, there and t"every-,  * where, ' something after, this , style":  "I-Ii!r\young fellah! whah' arc you.  ��������� going? * Come back heah.'-' One ol  the, cowboy troopers walked, up to  the -young ofiTcen' and said, "ricaso  sir,' may I ���������. go and wash my  hands?" -V.'Yaas," was the reply;  "go and wash your dirty body.

Trooper    '���������������������������,  was immediately placed under . arrest for insubordination, and, the  story getting round the camp, Col.  'Steele, at the court-martial,' asked  Duller to let the man' tell his own  story. The trooper appeared before the court in corduroy breeches,  with his shirt sleeves rolled up, and  commenced     like     this: "General,  we've had a hard      day's  march, haven't wo?" "Yes," replied Buller, with a smile, ," but  you must not swear." ' "Well," continued the trooper, "we came alongside the Crocodile river. You call  it a river, but in our country wo  call it a. stream. You see that  young thing over there (pointing to  'the ,young officer, who still wore  his monocle), " he was orderin'  everybody about, and when I asked  him, if I might wash my hands,c  he told me to wash my body, too,  and asked me why I spoke to him  about it,   and I told him I thought  perhaps he owned the river.

President Hyde, of Bowdoin, gives  these rules for acquiring the art of  pessimism: "Live in the passive  voice; be intent on .what you can  get, rather than on what you can  do. Live in the subjective mood,  'meditating on what might be rather  than what actually is. Live in the  third person, finding fault with other' people instead .of telling your own  affairs in order, and prescribing their  duties rather than attending to your  own., Live in the plural number,  following the opinions and standards of respectability of other people rather'.than your'own perception  of what is fit and proper. Keep  these rules faithfully, always measuring the worth of life .in terms of  personal pleasure rather than in  terms of growtn of character or service of high ends, and you will be a  pessimist before you  know it."

For instance?, it is impossible to "kick"  a man in French. You must give him  a "blow with the foot." The Portuguese do not "wink" at one; they "close  and open the eyes."  In the languages of the American Indians there is no word with which to  convey the idea of "stealing," perhaps  because the idea of property is so  vague.

The    treo'  with the w.orm'at the root will usually  commence  to .die  at  the      top, ,  as    it-will  also in,the case, of blight  and sun .scald.

Aud how  '   wo do hang on to some,of these things!  Why,  say,  we���������ve got  boxes and  trunks  containing   things   that   we've   saved   in  that way that we've been lugging around ,  i'or years,  paying  to have them  moved  . t and  giving  up   room  for thu  storing of  '   them, .that we never Iook'into at all.   We  couldn't tell  what was in some of thuui  without looking,  but they, are things we  ' sort of hate' to throw away, and ho we  keep lugging 'em around.  , "I  don't  want  to  drag  in   melancholy  thoughts in a cheerful conversation,  but*  I  find myself wondering sometimes now,  a*; I grow older, what will become of all  ,t!iis truck we,save up in this way when  we die/ It  will  all  be just  lying there,  and those who come after us will look at  it   and   wonder   what   under  the   canopy  wo saved  it  for, and  then  they'll  throw,  it  away,   which  I  tell   Mrs.   Bill tops  we  n-'ght just as well-do now ourselves and  get   rid   of   it.

Most  likely this is done to  prevent the heavy  and awkward fledgelings from falling out  of the nest to the ground far below.    In  several cases when the female was liber-,  ated after her long and close confinement*  she was found  pitiably  poor and  weak,  although the male was diligent in providing her and the young ones with food.  RAISING   POULTRY.  Insect* Thnt Uie Rubber.  When Para rubber trees are tapped,  after the gum has run into receptacles  and stiffened, a species of large black ant  is accustomed to cut out pieces of the  rubber and carry them away. Bees also  find use for india rubber, and some species in South America actually .cut the  bark of trees that produce resinous substances in order to cause a Uow of the  Bap. The gum is employed by the bees  as a ready made wax for their nests.  His  Mornln-pr   Minslon.  "You always get up at 5 o'clock in thft  morning, do you?" said the iiujuisitivo  cousin.

Young ducks eat more than chickens,  but are marketable sooner.  The best way to *-feed corn to young  chickensNs crushed or cracked.  When poultry does well under your  plan of management, do not try other  plans.  One meal of soft''feed a day is enough.  It should he given as soon as the chickens  fly down from the roosts.  Eggshells are very good for the fowls.  Crush them very tine before feeding  them lest the fowls get into the habit of  eating eggs.  Introduce new blood into the poultry  1 yard by buying some good, vigorous  males. Some pure bred fowls might be  purchased also.  One of  the   littio  leaks  is  in   keeping  surplus   males.    Sell   off  Qvery   one   not  needed as soon as they can be put into  1 marketable condition.  Geese cost very little if allowed the  liberty of the fields, with access to a  pond or streuni. The best breed for  feathers is the Embden, beiug entirely  white.  The size of the yards depends somewhat upon the brt-ed "and also upon the  manner iu which the flock is managed.  Generally the larger the yard the better  the lowls wiil thrive.  One grea't recommendation the larger  breeds of fowls have over the small ones  is that the large ones have to stay where  they are put, while the small ones usually go where they piease.  Feed the growing chickens four times  a day all that they will eat up clean. As  the young chick grows very tapidly it is  not easily .made fat and should bo induced to eat as much as possible so as to  be got into the market early.  ir  _Jt&*'3k %^'jJ^-A  '���������>������  ASSESSMENT ACT -AND  PROVINCIAL  REVENUE TAX  Both Sides of It.

I <J       . ���������<  ��������� *-  ������<-,  'fc  .Endeavor to Recover All or l'j-.rt oC the 30  _De_.ree-> of Heat  v\ hicU Ts a Duail _-.>bs  in Usuiij tlio l>re.-.ent style of _i)_-,;mi ���������  , Ammonia   und   sulphur   Dioxide    Aro  TJked���������Good \\ orkiu-irthiup  1 upcru.lve.  Prof. E. Josse, of the Royal Technical High' School in Chariot leu-  burg, Germany, has been for several  years experimenting with an auxiliary motor designed to increase the  'efficiency of stationary steam en-'  gines by utilizing the heat which  ��������� goes to, waste in the exhaust steam.  of a high-pressure, * ov in the circulating water of a low-pressure, or  condensing,  steam engine.  It was in the autumn of 1S99 that  the first  public  trials  were made  of  the new motor,   and,   as  the     result  of   these   trials' was   to   demonstrate  an 'economy of from 35 to 40      per  ��������� cent,   in,'the   generation   of      power,  .   _  company was   organized  for  c   tlie  purpose of- working Out the new sys-.  tem,  and preparations were made to1  , continue      the  experiments   by  Prof.  Josse on a much 'larger scale, under  conditions which would permit of afo-  '   eolutely complete' and exact      measurement* at every stage of the process,   and   give   a   conclusive   verdict  as to the cost,  practicability,      and  economic value of  the invention.  It is  well known that a large pro-  'portion   of   the  thermal   energy   ������de-  >' livered to  _ steam engine from   its  boiler, is'" lost' 'in  the (unused     steam  which  exhausts  into"1- the  air  of        a  noncondensing   engine   or_ 'is   ,    absorbed by the coid water of the con-  ,>,denser      in   a  low-pressure  machine.  Compound    engines'   of    modern improved,  types   economize  ihis' 'waste  power  to   an important  degree      by  using the steam successively     in     a  jBccond, r- -third/ and  even fourth cylinder,   but  even  then   there  remains  a dead', loss of about 80 degrees     of  - heat,   namely,' the   ,  difference        between * the-temp erasure  of  the    .con-  ,-denser  (140' degrees 3-*"1.')   and  that of  the  circulating   water,   which will  ' average      about 60  degrees'F.    'The  -idea of  the prep^nt  invention  is     to  - . i ���������-  a:  .  A W--STE-J.J.AT  ACj::ir.[AIiV   ���������M.tI_YI*..  utilize this  wasted heat for    ovapor-  'ating a liquid  which      boils.        and  therefore volatizes,  at a much lower  temperature      than  water.      Two  of  such    liquids���������ammonia  and  sulphur  -dioxide���������have  been   successfully  used  in   the   refrigerating   industry.       For  the reasons that sulphur dioxide has  a'viscous consistency and does     not  attack,   but,   on  the  contrary,   lubricates, iron, and because the pressure  of its vapors at the temperature    of  waste steam is readily controlled, it  has been used .from  the first  as the  best material for this purpose.      At  140    degrees F.,   which  is    the  temperature of steam in a maximum or  80 per cent, vacuum, sulphur dioxide  vapor has a pressure of 15G.V pounds  per square inch, while at 50.degrees  F.,   the  mean  temperature  of*       the  cooling   water  in the  condenser,  the  pressure    is     about     4.1 pounds per  square inch.      There is,   therefore,   a  range  of  80   degrees  F.,   throughout  which  the  exhaust  steam  from        a  uteam  engine   will   evaporate        sulphur dioxide with such     energy that  its' vapor    will exert a ready      and  potent expansive force.      The      conservation     of  this  expansive      force  as a mechanical motive power is the  function of the "waste-heat,"  or,  as  it      is     otherwise  called,   the   "cold-  steam,"   engine.      For   this  purpose,  an   additional   or   auxiliary       single-  cylinder   engine  is   placed       adjacent  to the steam engine and geared either to the same driving shaft or run  independently   with   its   own   driving  shaft  and  fly  wheel.       The     sulphur  dioxide   is   evaporated   by the        exhaust  steam  heat   in   a  special   type  of boiler called the "atomizer."    The  vapor thus generated passes through  the  cylinder,   and,   its  effective  work  being done,  it escapes  into  the    sulphur dioxide  condenser,   where  it is  condensed  to  liquid  form and  pumped,     back     into   the  vaporizer,   thus  iromihg a cycle and being used over  and.  over   again  indefinitely,   as    has  been fully described in a previous report,     which     described   the   experiments down to the close of 1899.  We come now to the subsequent  operations. Although the proceso  is technically direct and simple, it  was found 1,0 involve in practice  several new in**.hanical difficulties.  As sulphur dioxide gas is deleterious  to the lungs, it was necessary to  make all joints and packing���������particularly, that of the valve and piston rods���������so perfect that, however  great the pressure, none of the dioxide gas or liquid should escape.  In the presence of a.ir or water, the  neutral dioxide rapidly oxidizes into  sulphuric acid, which attacks iron  and other metals. It is therefore  necessary that the whole apparatus  shall be air and water tight, and  this,   to   resist   an   internal    *���������  of 150 pounds per'square inch, requires good materials, first-class  workmanship, and. intelligent supervision when in operation. The surface condenser, which is required to  transmit great quantities of heat  energy with 'a minimum loss of temperature, also required'some special  adaptation (to the treatment of sulphur dioxide vapor. All these difficulties, as revealed by the experiment:-! in _ 1899, were carefully provided for in the new plant. \  This   was   a   cold-vapor   cylinder  of  lOi-inch 'borei and   194-inch    stroke,  which,  was attached to  o.  150  horsepower   triple-expansion    Gorlitz     en-  <-���������"/->   '-.f   niirh   efficiency,   which  is  regularly  employed      at  the  technical  high  school ,for  electric-lighting  and  experimental   purposes.      The   engine  is  of an  improved modern type,   tho  high   and' intermediate  pressure     cylinders   being   placed   tandem        and  horizontal,      while   the   low-pressure  cylinder   is   vertical,   and   all      three  act upon the same crank and driving-  shaft. , '  The cold-vapor cylinder is made of  cast iron ,covered, not'with a heating jacket, but with a simple bheut-  -iron casing packed with felt. it is  proportioned for a maximum working pressure ���������< of 215 pounds per  square .inch.  . The''vaporizer   and   condenser   ��������� are  of   iron,   cylindrical   in   form, and  about ten feetcin length. They are  set in a steel frame, one above the  other, and the pump* which injects  the liquid dioxide '���������coming' from the*  'condenser up* into, the vaporizer is  underneath the condenser. Both  contain a system of tubes very carefully made and fitted, so as to prevent the leakage of 'water or dioxide.  The vaporizer, which fulfills _ the  function" " of, a | cold-s team , boiler,  is of,      3d.2        '  inches    ,   internal  diameter, and' has , ali'out 753  square feet of heating surface, by  which the exhaust steam of ihe ' engine acts upon the liciuid dioxide and  "converts it into vapor. It then  passes through the cold-vapor cylinder and returns to the condenser,  which has an internal diameter of 41������  inches and about 7_0 square 'feet of  cooling surface.' Valves, are set in  both pipe systems, so, that sections,  can be cut out for examination, .and  repair without withdrawal of the.  dioxide! The feed pump is worked  ���������by an eccentric on the main shaft,  and requires only three-fourths of  one per cent, of the developed power-  of the , engine. The above arrangement of the' different parts is of  course merely arbitrary, and , was  adopted to' secure the utmost economy of space, 'but the condenser 'and  evaporizer may bo placed in any desired- position cofuement to the engine and 1 best adapted to locaL conditions. 'Thus constituted, and ' .arranged, the waste-heat engine' at the  technical high 'school has been run  almost continually since the end of  September, 1900, without accident  or   any     _erious  difficulty. During  the hours when the storage batteries  are being charged, it has teen run  up 'to a speed of 168 revolutions per  minuie.  The load has been a dircct-corucct-  cd continuous-current dynamo, .with  a rutcd output, at 150 revolutions,  of 400 amperes and 240 volts, which,  as the official report' states, was  sometimes overloaded as high as 40  per cent, as a means 'of testing the  increased capacity obtained by the  addition of the waste-heat cylinder.  The1 result, in respect to both steam  consumption and electrical output.  *��������� lias been measured by tho highly perfected standardized instruments and  methods with which the technical  high school is fully equipped.  The report of Prof. Josse. from  which the foregoing results are derived, goes extensively into the question of comparative costs of installation. Condensed to their most concise 'compass, his conclusions arc  that a������ combined steain-waste-heat  plant of 1,600 horse-power, including  compound steam engines of 1,200 indicated horse-power and a cold-vapor  plant of 400 indicated horse-power,  complete in every detail, would cost  in Germany 212,000 marks ($50,-  456), while a triple-expansion steam  engine of 1,600 horse-power, without  vapor engine, would cost 206,000  marks ($4.9,02S), a difference of only  SI,4.24, which, with steam coal at  51.15 per ton, as at Berlin, would  be saved in a short time by the cold-  vapor  auxiliary.  ,     ,MKS.

Mrs. Julia Dent Grant, who is just  recovering from a rather serious illness following upon her last sojourn  at her summer home in Cobourg,  Ontario, is now in her seventy-fifth  year and has enjoyed excellent  health and spirits almost all the  years of her life. The widow of the  great soldier and President was born  at St. Louis, the daughter of Frederick and Ellen Dent. It was soon  after her graduation from a boarding  school that tho charming Miss Dent  met'and captured the heart of the  then Lieut. Grant,-who'was stationed at St. Louis. The marriage took  place on Aug. 22, ISIS. .When'Gen.  Grant left the White House his wife  accompanied him on his trip around  the world and shared in all tho honors bestowed on the hero of the civil  war. After the general's death Congress passed a bill giving his widow  a pension of $5,000 a year, upon  which she has chiefly subsisted since  that time.  I'hotoGrraph Frames.

The little ones who have nothing to  lie are inevitably fretful and mischievous,  so it is necessary for mothers to lind suitable a_d varied employment for their  5'oung folks. A favorite pursuit becomes  monotonous if indulged in too long, and  the guiding spirit of the nursery and  schoolroom must rack her brains for a  ihange of occupation when the children  lire confined to the house by bad weather.  Silver paper which comes from chocolate, packets of tobacco and elsewhere is  generally prized, though the little ones  don't know what to do with it. If a tiny  ball is formed with the first piece and  other portions are added btiowbnll fashion, a very young child can make for  itself a capital ball.  Spills of paper neatly folded for father  to light his cigar are another source of  delight.  It is always advisable to inculcate the  lessons of.good nature and unselfishness  when the children set to work. Let'the  older ones pnii'-t pictures and fill scrap-  books for. the hospitals, while the "tinies"  can,tear up paper as a stuffing for simple  charity pillows. Well to do little people  are so lovingly and thoughtfully treated  nowadays that they are 'in. danger of  thinking that everything is theirs by  right, and it is all important to teach  them to share their playthings readily  and cheerfully and be ready to give up to  others less fortunate than themselves.  There is nothing that will cultivate this  spirit of generosity more quickly than to  follow, this method of planning for the  preparation of some gift for others less  fortunate than themselves in their daily  occupation, and they will soon learn to  consider this their most delightful pastime.���������Philadelphia TimeSj  Something   Wrong**.
