A young bachelor friend of our  town seems to posriess a cranium of  tho thickness and hutting capability with which that of the fcs*ive  coon is usually credited j ��������� ii his  achievment at Courtenay lately is a  sample of its strength.     During a  game of blind man's buff, or cold  turkey or something of.the sort, our  friend, who whs one of two blind  turkeys, brought hi-; head into contact with, the nose of the opposing  turkey with such force, that the  opposing snout was smashed in.  No juke, mind you, but broken so  completely and thoroughly that  the services of a medical man were  necessary, and Teddy's head wasn't  hurt a bit either. *  | WHARF    NOTES.  f ���������  S.S.

SOUTH WELLINGTON.  Mr and Mrs King of Esquimalt,  accompanied the romain.-",. of the  late Mr McKelvey to Comox, and  will be guests of their sister, Mrs  Stafford McKelvey for a few days.  The residence of Alex. Faulds was  fired   into  late   Sunday   night   by  some unknown parly.    Three shots  in all were fired at tlie  house,   two  of   them went throuuh   the pantry  window one lodging in the wall of  the dining room, the other, in y^oung  Mr Faulds'  bedroom.     The   shots  are .supposed . to   have  been  fired  from  the track at the back of   the  house.      Mr Faulds  and family at  the time of the shooting were in the  front  part   of   the   house   and so  escaped injury. Mr Faulds thought  blank cartridges  were being   used 7  ancl stones thrown at the roof.     It  was not till next morning that he  discovered the true state of affairs.

GEORGE RATHBONE  "Nor was he apt, ,to spon. iorget  'that he had been drawn behind the  barricade by the little white hand of  u the fair being across whose path he;  had been thrown by one of the strangest freaks  on record.  With each passing second Rex became more like himself, and presently  "was able to use his voice.  Of course, his first thought was to  -discover what manner of place it  might be they had entered. Along  the American frontier in days gone  ���������by, such cabins had sheltered the  -early settlers, and, were on many an  ���������occasioi* of sudden attack turned in-  ' ,to stout forts or blockhouses,, be-  "hind the walls of which the inmates  ��������� -used their long rifles upon the Indians, with deadly effect.  A   few  words, from  the   girl   dissi-  - pated  what, there   was    of  ' mystery  'clinging  about the  little  hut.  It had --been their home when they  ���������first   came  to  live  among  the  neighbors   of  the   warlike  Matabelc whose  '"headquarters    had    been     Buluwayo.  ?Later   on   they  had    abandoned > the  c -cabin  and  sought    refuge  up ' on   the  ���������side*' of -the, memntain.'      The   hermit  -had with his own hands built the little  structure  just  outside  the    walls  -.of  the  kraal,   and though  years  had  -Gincc fled it was about as sturdy and  ���������substantial as wlten first erected.  A<ftx*:r  all    it  was  but "'a  respite  or  * -breathi-ng    spell-   that    was    granted -  ���������them.     The end  seemed just  as  cer-  "-tain as when they were running    bo-  fore the impis.  Already came the' thunder of weapons on the  oaken panels  of the   rude  -door,-as some of < the more impatient  tamong the braves started to break a  -���������passage into the cabin.  Rex had his revolver, but once that  x"Was exhausted how could he stay, the'  ���������awful tide?  Sjouder grew the pounding, "whether  tfone with rude axes or the points of  spears, and,Rex c%>uld hear the splin-  r  ters of wood'being torn <tway.  - He,   nerved   himse.f   for  the crisis,^  ������������������ -nnd-took   up   his    station     near . the  . 'dqor.^   At  least,, he would block the  'passage  with-   bodies,    for    a    time.  When    the    revolver   failed   him      he  -might  use  it as  a  cudgel,   and    thus  "������������������lighting go down.under the weight of  Si is  foes. ~ -,*  A splinter struck ' him, as one of  the spears cut through the wood.  This warned him to stop to one side  where he waited with feverish eager-  c> /less the opening of what,, he had  every reason to believe would be his  iast  mortal  encounter. *  Of course it was pitch dark, and  he had not the remotest idea what  the girl had  been  doing  this  while  tie "was just on the point of calling  out to warn her of the danger when  "he felt her tugging at hir: arm. and  ������������������as   he   put   out   his   hand   his   fingers  ��������� closed upon something  ttat felt won-  "derfully like the hilt of r-, sword.  "What's -this?" he cried out in  -sheer amazement, half believing he  -must be dreaming.

The Story of a Young G-irl Who Suffered from Headaches, Dizziness  and Fainting  Spells���������Her  Health  ������������������ Became so" Bad That She Was  Forced to  Give Up School.

Like   so  other young ladies throughout  the   land, Miss   McLellan   fell   a    victim    to    anaemia,    or    poorness    of  blood,   and  although     several    medicines were,tried, * she found nothing  to help Her until she 'began using Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People.  Miss., McLellan  tells  th6  story  of her  illness 'as  follows :    "1  am now    18  years  of age,   and for a considerable  time   'suffered    much    from anaemia.  My 'blood had almost- turned to water, and I was very weak and^pale ;  in  fact could not,, undergo   the  least  exertion.   My  appetite failed mc; ' 1  suffered from, headaches;   if I stooped  1 would become dizzy,  and frequently 1 suffered from fainting spells. ���������  I  tried  several  kinds   of medicine    and  doctors   prescribed   for  me.   but     instead of getting better I was gradually growing weaker,  and eventually  had to    discontinue -going to school.  About this time I read the testimonial of a.girl whose    condition ��������� was  similar to mine, who had been cured  by  Dr.   Williams'" Pink Pills.   I  then  decided to try these pills,  and-" have  every reason  to  be gratified  that,   I  did so,  as they have completely restored my health.   .Every  one  of -the  symptoms that had made my .life so  miserable have    disappeared,    , and-1  am now enjoying as good health   as  any girl of my age could wish,    and  I shall always have a good word lo'  say for Dr.-Williams'  Pink Pills.  Miss McLellan further stated that  while she was not desirous of publicity in matters of this 'kind. ' she  nevertheless felt that lier experience,  if known might be the means of  bringing health to some other sufferer, and 'it is this very praiseworthy motive that has induced her  to give the above statement for publication.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make rich,  red -blood,- and give tone - to the  nerves? It is because of this that  they bring bright eyes, rosy cheeks  and light footsteps to girls who  have' 'been woary, pale and listless  and 'had 'beg'un to feel that life was  a burden. _Pale and anaemic girls  everywhere should give these pills  a fair trial as .they are certain to  restore health and strength. See  that the full name "Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills for Pale Peoplo" is on  the wrapper around every box. Sold  by all dealers, or sent postpaid at  50c a box, or six boxes for .$2.;30.  by addressing tho Dr. "Williams Medicine Co., Brockville,  Ont.

If successful, it will afford  us  a     wonderful      glimpse  into  the'  1 " mechanism, of the universe. ' Tt is "no  less than. . an attempt to,ascertain  by- the aid of photographs whether  , the great spiral shaped nebulae that  glow* here and there among ihe stars  are subject to a visible whirling nio-*-  tion.       7 "* ' '  The forms of these strange objects  indicate that they resemble in their  nature vast whirlpools composed of  incandescent gases,   mingled perhaps  > .with meteoric bodies and' started in  ,   gyration' by,means of forces and influences'     not / clearly comprehensible  7 to us.     But hitherto thei'e has been  no direct evidence of motion hi these  '    nebulae.   f So     far      as     any visible  ,  change is/concerned  they  might     be  '    as -motionless  as frost figures ' upon  a''window,���������pane.        '    b, ���������  Telescopic .observation  alone    does  . not suffice    to    reveal    - their move-  '   meats,  because they are so t immense  ancl ihe length  of an observation is j  so brief that .there is not 'time     en-  ,   - ough-vfor the effects ��������� of the probable  'motion  to reveal- itself, to , the \eye.  Moreover,   on  accounts of  the "-faint  .   and hazy outlines "of tho "nebulae, no  drawings of them made by hand���������can  -be rendered   su/mciently  accurate .-to  serve the purpose.    But now that-as-  -    tronomical photography, 'has reached  \   a high degree of perfection all     this  "   is changed,  and it is hoped that by  comparing   ��������� such photographs   taken  at' intervals the whirling of the nebulae will- be rendered evident to cur >  senses!        ��������� ��������� '-  ,  The interest in this,experiment lies  -in the fact  that there is some reason to think that the spinal nebulae  represent a primordial condition   - of  the substance1 out" of'which the.ftars,  j    worlds  and 'suns composing the universe " has     been formed.    'Our-"solar.  , system may once have glowed softly  '-in the depths of space in the, form of  ^a rather  small   spiral  nebula  before  its gleaming,atoms had been whirled  and. compacted "* into   sun" and   planets.  '.Thus in studying,the spiral nebulae' we 'are lilce the1 botanist ' who  sis able to see locked up in * the shell  of- an'   acorn ,the germ of the  undeveloped oak. -   ''���������  x By learning what laws control the  motion and .contraction of such nebulae we shall approach toward- a  solution of the old and always interesting question of'how the world be-  , gan. But the fact ^should not be  -lost sight of that the spiral nebulae  now visible in the heavens enormously exceed in extent the entire  solar system.  It is probable that such nebulae  as the large one in Canes Veiiatici  or the still mightier one in Andro-  - meda contain enqugh matter to form  hundreds if not thousands of solar  systems. In their case a gigantic  sun like Arcturus, exceeding our sun  thousands of times in size and radiant capacity, may be in process of  formation. And' we are at liberty  to suppose that around such giant  suns giant worlds will revolve when  the process of the ages has brought  them  into   existence.  In short, the aim of the new step  that Miss Klumpke is to take in astronomical investigation is to clear  up some of the mystery that now  surrounds those objects in the heavens which give in their appearance  every indication that they stand for  the most ancient form ofecosmical  order emerging out of primeval  chaos.  If the method proves as effective  as is hoped, we may not have to  wait very long for results, because  fortunately very excellent photographs of the chief representatives of  the spiral nebulae began to be made  by Dr. Isaac Roberts in England  ten or twelve years ago, and his series of photographs has been continued at more or less frequent intervals during all the intervening  time.  Miss Klumpke's first' work will  consist of a most careful-measurer'  ment and comparison of these-'accumulated photographs of Dr. Ilob-  erts, upon which, as already explained, the results;of any change of  form .'. undergone by7 the . respective  nebulae, must be recorded, provided  that those changes have been rapid  enough to reveal themselves' in the  course of a decade.

"The methods toy which they eliminate  the 'servant girl question' in 0Germahy,"  said one���������the wife of a professor in an-  important American university ��������� "are  very interesting. They go at it with the  same thoroughness with which the German attacks everything, whether a rare  species of beetle or the organization of  the army.  "The'whole'subject is under the control of the police. They have every servant .girl listed. If a housewife requires  help in her kitchen, but is unable to pay  much for it, by application to< the proper  authorities she can secure a young girl  without experience. A contract is made  ' for a year. The employer agrees to feed  and clothe the girl and to teach her certain specified things in housekeeping,  but no wages are paid. At the (end of  the year the housewife, can retain the  girl by paying her small wages aud  agreeing to continue , her education'in  housework.to a certain specified extent."  "The things she is to teach are 'nominated in the bond,' and she is expected  to rigidly carry out' her end of the (agreement in consideration of the fact that  she pays little or,.no wages. ,In this way,  you see, the servant serves an apprenticeship. It is much superior, I think, to  our way, in which we take ignorant girls,  'teach them everything they knowi oven  to speak English, and .pay them nearly  'or quite as much as a well trained servant. , i j- .  .'"If you want a thoroughly competent  servant in 'Germany, you can get one at  a specified price. And you can examine  the record'of every girl at the police" station/" If she has ever been discharged,,  you will find the fact there, with the reasons therefor, and thus can tell her  character at a glance-without resort to  the farcical ^ letter of ' recommendation  given>by a former employer.

When  the hair begins to split or fall out, massage of the scalp is excellent. *  v -Place the tips of Ahe fingers firmly  upon the scalp, and then vibrate or  move the scalp while holding the pressure steadily. This will stimulate the  blood-vessels underneath and bring the  blood vessels underneath' and bring  about better nourishment of the hair.  A brush, of unevenly tufted bristles is  also excellent to use upon the scalp, not  tho hair.            .                                 '  Stage Story of <t Tree.  Mr. Beaumont's first London engagement was-to play in "The Star of India,"  one of Arthur Shirley's stirring melodramas. His great moment was when he  had to bind the hero to a stump of an  "ancient tree," in a very beautiful jungle  setting. Thero was a dark change from  an interior to the jungle, and one night  when Mr. Beaumont and the hero rushed  on they were horrified to discover th.it  the tree was missing. Mr. Beaumont at  once made up his mind to speak his lines  just the same and drag the < hero out of  sight.  Unfortunately, the men under the stage  wore under an impression that tho lights  were still lowered, aud just as Mr. Beaumont cried in his loudest voice that the  hero should be lashed to the trunk of a  tree they pushed the tree up through the  floor. The audience, after a moment of  utter aniazement, burst into a roar of  laughter and applause at the expense of  the struggling hero and enraged villain.���������  Mainly About People.  Irregularity and Indigestion.  A. common cause cf ��������� indigestion is  irregularity respecting the time of  meals. The human system seems to  form habits and to be in a degree dependent upon the performance of its  function in. accordance with the habits  formed. In respect to digestion this ia  especially observable. If a meal is  taken at a regular hour, the stomach  becomes accustoaied to receiving food  at that hour and is prepared for it.  If meals are taken irregularly, the  stomach 13 taken by surprise, so to  speak, ancl is never in. that state of  readiness in which it should be for the  prompt and perfect performance of its  v- ork.

"Few men professing to be judges of  fine cigars know anj'thing at all about  smoking* them," remarked a cigar dealer. "The ashes on the end of the cigar,  serve to retain the flavor and should be  permitted to remain: as long as possible. Then the constant thumping  some smokers give their cigars in .the.  attempt "to keep them clear of ashes  often causes the wrappers to break,  and, that also lessens the pleasure of a  good smoke."

' It is not for the laity to throw -stones  at the parson about his slip, due either to  platform fright or to absence of mind,-- for  the brethren and sisters who are not of  the cloth make plenty of mistakes of this  kind. Nearly, every one���������man or woman  ���������in this day has attempted to speak at  some gathering and has sat'down with  the frightful-consciousness of having said  something W;hich was far from that intended. One man, a lawyer, is still  piqued at himself over the recollection of  having said three times in the course.of  an address that "there was no food'for  either animal or beast," and a certain  clubwoman recalls with horror how, iu  the midst of a poetic description of sunrise" in' Alaska/she finished with "and it  was very pretty.indeed." "  Yet there are more recorded slips made  by ministers, perhaps, because a ridiculous thing said,, from the pulpit'becomes  thrice ridiculous, as, for instance, the announcement made by a country clergyman just before the benediction that Mrs  Blank, a poor w.idow of the parish, desired him to thank all those members of  the church who-had so kindly "assisted"  .at the death of her husband. The village,  doctor, who had given his services on this  sad occasion was the most chagrined.  - In another Illinois church a social was  to be held. .--Knowing that the small fry  wns-much in evidence at such times and  that it often became boisterous, treading  indeed upon the ecclesiastical and other  toes  and x sitting upon  the ecclesiastical  silk hat, the Ladies' Aid society,' -which  was managing the affair, determined to  word the notice that parents would not  feel   at  liberty  to' bring  their  offspring.  Sunday the .minister, glancing hastily at  the   paper ��������� in his .hand,   saw   only, the  words "children" and "invited" and, folding it up, proceeded to say that the ladies  specially urged the children to be present,  adding, that   no   occasion   was  complete  without them. ���������*���������  "The, Saviour <said, -'Suffer little chil-  dren to'coine unto me,' and it,is the glory  of the Christian church that it cherishes  these tender little plants and that uever  does it wish them to foel that they ar-3  not welcome within her gates. , Let the  children, therefore, be present as far as  possible." 'They were, it is,needless to  record, attacking the cake plate with astonishing results and testing the capacity  of-the ice cream freezer.  7inother minister made an announcement^ which 'grated harshly upon the  nerves of the-more sensitive part of the  congregation, "alttiough he was probably  'u'nable'to avoid doing it, as'the notice  had been sent in properly signed. It was  just after a beautiful and touching solo,  sung by the tenor of the choir���������one* of  those songs which" seem "to lift the singer  and the listener up above earthly things.  ���������WhiIe the audience was still breathless  and the tenor was about to take his seat  the pastor arose and-announced cheerfully there would be a chicken pie social-  in the parlors of the" church Thursday  night, at which a large attendance was  expected.  There is a story, not a new one, certainly, and probably not a true one. but  one which is applicable, of a minister  whose discourse was upon the wonders  of creation and God's care of the least  .as well as of'the greatest of his works.  "When God created the mountain, he  made the tiny grain of sand. When he  made a Niagara, he also made the little  dewdrop. When he made the huge elephant, his hand formed the tiny gnat,  and when he made me he made a daisy."  In these opinions his hearers may have  concurred and may not have.  A Presbyterian minister, writing in an  English religious monthly, gives a few  genuine slips made by the clergy of his  acquaintance. One of these stories is of  a young pastor who labored among the  fisher folk of the east coast and who  was much given to metaphors. This Sunday morning he spoke of the soul sailing  out upon the sea of eternity, and he was  almost dramatic.  "Look," he cried, "at yonder ship! The  rBlue Peter is at the masthead; the sails  are hoisted. She rises on the swelling  waters like a swan. And now the anchor  is raised and slung trom���������from���������fr"���������  Here he paused, while the congregation,  every member of which knew a ship from  l'oie to alt, waited v\ith expectant interest. "From the place where it Ought to  be!" he finished desperately. "'E means  well," said an old seaman after the service, "but w'at can you think of a man as  doesn't know the cat's head?"  Then there was the brother who gave a  series of sermons on 'the prophet .Jonah  and.* coming to the part about the storm,  told with fervent gestures how the sailors  "rowed and rowed to bring the sea to  land." This is much like the effort of  that other pastor who described to his  people the situation of a man who was  hanging over a frightful abyss and ended  with the words. "And to him the moments seemed minutes."  Once a minister in picturing Nemesis  overtaking the guilty spoke of the "sound  of footprints approaching" and was dismayed tit the smile which went round.  Yet not all mistakes are mere slips of  the tongue. An old Methodist minister of  blessed memory who preached in central  Illinois twenty-five years ago used repeatedly to speak of the "thousand cattle  feeding upon ten thousand hills," which  is a remarkable feature performed all at  once.  "But let not the maker of slips worry  too much about them," is the advice of an  old minister, "for it is the really earnest  man who does it most, and for every such  slip there is likely to have been enough of  forceful speaking to make an impression  and   perhaps  to  live  forever."  "(lot "Water ��������������� a Cosmetic.

The Care of Oily Hair.  Too oily hair is the lesult of a poor circulation. It should be constantly attended to and washed every week. It is caused by too, much grease between'the skull  and tho scalp. It i.s bad grease and can  only be removed by massage because-  massage is the only thing that will bring  the blood to.the1 surface. To pour a tonic  on greasy hair is like pouring water on  olive oil.  Greasy hair has large pores. It requires more washing, more soap or shampoo, less brushing and much massage.

The ' Poets'    Sweet    Creatures    Who
Have Cnpt-aretl Men���Tlie Difference
Between  Jlavcellu ^and Trilby���Wo-
( man's Tritimpli _u-t Hand.
j Even tbe most genuine and sincere of
girls are so certain at the ago when they
are pliant, to impressions more or less
consciously to shape themselves upon
some beau ideal-embodied in fiction or tho
drama that one is inclined- to -wonder,
which of the very opposite types of character in certain" books which we have all
read with the excitement, the animation,
of making .a vital discovery of the possibilities of life is likely to be most deep
and permanent in its effects.
A bright girl's restlessness,,h-er aspirations, her misgivings, her curiosity, her
desire in some way to possess the whole
-woL-ld, all help her to lind a penetrative
suggestiveness in the expedience of some
happily constituted being, who does easily
nnd admirably what she herself longs to
do. Emerson says that we must read history actively and not passively, esteeming
history the text and our own lives the
commentary. And this is precisely what
youth does in reading history and to some
degree poetry. (   ,
From Homer down the poets vied with
each other in drawing heroines who have
captivated generation after generation of
men. Take Shakespeare alone, aud iu
Juliet, Portia, Beatrice', Imogen, Perdita,
' Cornelia,  Yolumnia  and  Constance,  not
��� to  say .Cleopatra, -he has  with  curious
' ' felicity anticipated every charming phase
of ** womanhood���in  Portia  and > Beatrice
., even' tho well equipped college bred girl
of today." o "      .   ' . "
It is a pleasing  modern fallacy that
woman has.lately beon, if not invented,
at. least/ discovered, or,' perhaps, evolved,
out of peculiar conditions in answer to
the crying needs ot" the end of the nine-'
7tecnth century.   There is a growing belief, too, that the twentieth ceutury is to
witness -the triumph, of woman. 'Never-
, theless,  ever since  her, creation  woman
aas been doing half the work of the world
x .and   doing it   fairly   well,   without "any
. .theorizing"on the subject, aud it is only
in these later days that she/hasfbeea i;e-
-quired to bring such proof of her clear
brain, large heart and practical efficacy
as can be written out for examination.
"You'would  never have asked,"  says
* George Eliot, of one of her heroines, 7'a/
"any period of Mrs. Amos Barton's life ir
she sketched or played the piano.   You
,  would even, 7perhaps, have been rather
7 scandalizedjif she had descended from the
"  serene dignity- of being to the assiduous
unrest of doing."   Now,-the "heroine of*"
Mrs. Humphry Ward's finest book is an
"example'of .the "assiduous unrest of doing."   She is a fine creature; her serious-,
ness puts to shame our frivolity, her courage our faint heartedness, her living energy our indolence.   No heroine was ever
more absolutely up to date than Marcella.
'   She is humanitarian, political economist,
"   socialist, and is besides a beautiful girl,
with whom every man in the book falls
in love, and a nice girl, who makes every
woman anxious  to  be  her -friend.    She
gives herself freely to the cause of the
poor, longs for nothing so much as to live
iu the closest relations with them, work
with them and suffer with them. The injustice of things, .the sorrow of half ol
humanity, its bruises, aches and wrounds,
are a part of her consciousness, and she
overwhelms  with  her  girlish   disdain   a
great peer who will not rebuild the cottages for the poor tenants on his estate.
For her the impossible does not exist; no
sense of contradiction between the large
desire and the limited efficacy of man.
One's heart kindles over the girlT^vith
her patience and her impatience, her impetuous haste, her dogged tenacity of perseverance, her pride and her humility, hei
love of sympathy, yet her disdain of any
need  of  it;  her girlish   vanity,  yet  hei
womanly self depreciation; her sensitive-
' ness, her high courage, and one weighs
her self assertion uiul willfulness against
her forgetfulness of self.
��� Trilby, on _the other hand, has hardly
'.the most rudimentary sense that life im-
��� poses any high duties upon her except to
be good to the little brother. As to the
rights of women, she has no feeling thai
��� they either need or care for auy  more
.than they possess.    She simply accepts
���the contradictory facts of existence, finding the most opposite ideas, conceptions
'and sentiments subsisting slide by side in
her   experience   substantially   in   agreement.     Loving   sunlight,    warmth,    fragrance,    tenderness,    she    runs    toward
whatever offers  like a  child.    She  cap
tivates   on   the   instant,   and   the  direct
charm of the story,  always speaking tc
the heart, not only impresses the reader
'with the absolute sweetness and intrinsic
'purity of the girl,  but prepares one foi
the inevitable tragedy.   Tho author is as
much under the glamour exerted by Trilby's mysterious graces aud attractiveness
as his readers, yet his clear purpose, is
never  clouded.     She  begins  to  feel  the
meshes of the web which finally entangles
her at the very moment she is introduced
to  the  reader.   The- moral  of  the  story
unfolds   as   the   story   unfolds . with   its'
strange, deep insight alike-into the beauty
of the 'world and the great, woeful heart
of things.
The marvel is how clearly this heroine
has thrown into relief the unusual sense
of the distinction, the beauty, the majesty of the simple, natural, unspoiled
woman. Trilby may be said to show a

IHE "NURSING  MOTHER.
How  -to   Defeat   tlie   Old   Sayin����  ��A
Tooth For  Every Child.*"'
Nursing motlu** should take especial
care of their digestion not", simply on account of the- child, which, of course.V'is a
good deal,-but because of their own comfort aud well being. There are many
ways in which the system easily suffers
at this time, not the least among these
being the decay of the teeth. The old
saying, "A tooth "for every child," is not
without a foundation, inasmuch as, the
teeth!:.ar'e undoubtedly more, predisposed
to decay at this period of the woman's existence. I believe, however, that this decay is,>due iii large part to an acid dyspepsia developed about this time or
earlier in a good many cases'and causing
an undue amount of acid 'secretion, in tho
mouth, though in exceptional cases the
extra draft on the woman's system may'
need to bo considered. '   ' ���
To prevent this premature decay of the
teeth much may be done'by correcting
the accompanying digestive, disturbance
and the' administration of a good sirup of
lactophosphate of lime after meals. In
many cases history will show the beginning of this indigestion to run back some'
time before the birth of the child, and of
course it w.ere better if our treatment
could be instituted then. All healthy
mothers should nurse their babies if they
possibly can, for both mother and child
will be the better for it in the long run.
One of the surest .ways for the mother
to have plenty of milk is to take plenty of
milk herself, and, it'were better if this
milk be taken fresh from the cow. All
rich, stimulating articles of diet had ,best
be left out of the dietary'of the nursing
mother-. Plenty of bread and butter may
be allowed, and breakfast foods," with
lean meats once or twice a day; also eggs
in moderation. .Fried, dishes are to ,be
avoided.' Meat broths and soups, not too
greasy,' arc usually permissible. A wine-
glass'"of extract of malt drank while eating is often'a'godd tonic. ar
As directed especially to tlie indigestion
occurring at this time, I would prescribe,
to be administered before taking, nourishment,, a powder each one of which should,
be composed as ' follows: Caroid, five
grains; bicarbonate of soda, five grains;
popsinated' charcoal, three grains. This
will be found'to greatly assist ths diges-'
tion, the caroid serving also to make good'
bloodi through the enhanced assimilative
power. The' lime preparation or a preparation of hypophosphites can be used
in conjunction with this after meals,* and,
, both will be medication enough for most
cases." The caroid digestive powder may
often be used to good advantage to cor'
rect any "stomach or bowel disturbance
'in the child by simply giving it to tho
mother as indicated.���Dr. A. P. Reed in
Housekeepei*.
'Simple and Effective, but Costly.
"When I came to town, I-noticed a
little, round swelling on my; wrist,"
said a visitor from the country. "It

AN  INTERESTING  GAME.
An Unbroken Envelope.
Those *not in touch with the lives,of
working men1 and women can scarcely
���realize what it means^for"*'either sex to
bring home his or, her wage in "an un
broken envelope." Saturday; night means
freedom to spend, a taste of pleasure, a
bit of fun. It, would' lift the estimate of
human clfaracter if, ,to those who do not
have to measure their income by, their
labor, it'could be told how many thousand lads and tired, bright eyed girls
carry to their homes those tight sealed
little treasuries to be dispensed for the
family .good.' The sweetheart must wait,
the door of the theater remain closed, tho
coveted new clothes bo abandoned,' until
the rent is paid, the fuel is stored, the
younger children clothed and mother kept
from worry. The young lives erect themselves like pillars to uphold the roof and
stand guard until they can" without self
reproach pass on to their own homes.
. Strange   Hi dinar   Iflaces.
There are standing at the present day
Elizabethan houses known to contain
hidden chambers. The very positions
of these-chambers-can be shown, yet
their secrets have remained inviolate
for- centuries, the spring that should'
serve as the open sesame being undis-
coverable. 'Some day the , accidental
touch of a- girl's finger,, may set a column ofTstone rotating or a panel sliding ora door in a pictureframe^retreating on invisible hinges, and the secret
���if any remain���will be revealed. .
. The place of mystery- in, these, ancient granges that served as,shelter t��
a friend in distress might equally prove
the ,death of an enemy of "the house.
The priest's hole behind a fireplace'was
easily converted into an oven. There
were ' staircases which the foot of a
friend might press in perfect'security.
Another, not instructed how to tread,
sets his<foot apparently on the.same
place, the stairyawns open, and at the
end of the pit is" the -water. Here ia
much romance.-

Some time ago.jwhen traveling in northern Wisconsin, I came across a new
game, which," although simple and "easy
to play, was so fascinating that I think
every boy or girl would enjoy it.   *
Here is the way to make the apparatus
needed: Take six boards about , eight
inches wide and two feet long and place
them on edge in a parallel position, with
the long edges' to the ground. With a
gimlet bore a hole in each corner of the
boards and through each ' set of holes
thus made insert aiv iron rod two and
one-half feet long.1 Adjust the boards on
the rods so that a space of about five
inches intervenes' between each, two
boards. Cut ten tin or wood doors five
inches, wide' and eight inches long to fit
iu the spaces under tlie ro'ds and between
the boards .and thon. hang these doors on*
the rods with cord or wire, taking care to'
have them loose enough to swing freely.

Pipe   Smoking.
There are many pipe smokers who'do
not know how to get the best there is
. j-out of. their indulgence. The great
point'In pipe smoking is to smokeslow-
ly.��Nervous smokers smoke too rapidly
and burn their tongues with hot smoke,
besides failing entirely to get the fullest-arid best flavor out'of the" "tobacco.
It is all a matter of habit, but slow
smoking is a habit which it Is hard
for some people to acquire. In some
cases pipe smokers have tried for years
to check their smoking speed without
success. They began too late, and the
habit of rapid' smoking is shaken off
with difficulty when it is once acquired.
Rapid smoking is as bad as** rapid
eating���or worse. It is also "bad form."
Whether it is cigar, pipe or cigarette,
the smokingshould be deliberate 'in order to get the fullest enjoyment. It Is
especially so-with a pipe.
"Womanly Items.
As a woman loveth, so is she.
Sometimes it is when a woman doesn't
talk that she is most interesting.
A sereue nature and content are the
secrets of beauty.
A girl never wants her engagement announced until she has her solitaire.
A woman can use a greater variety of
gestures to stop a street car than Del-
sarte ever dreamed of.
The secret of good dressing isn't so
much what a woman wears as what she
doesn't wear.
Some women's ideas of "equal rights"
are all the prerogatives of a man plus the
privileges of a woman.
A woman may have the most elegant
and elaborate paper cutter imaginable,"
but she generally prefers to cut the pages'
of her magazine with a hairpin.
Made Over Dishes.
One of the best made over dishes in
which cold roast beef figures is this:
Slice tho meat vciy thin and make a
sauce by browning two tablespoonfulg
of butter, adding the same amount of
flour and , stirring until, both are brown.
Then add one-quarter of a teaspoonful
each of curry powder, mustard and salt
and one-eighth of a teaspoonful of paprika. When all have been mixed, add
one cupful of stock and a tablespoonful
of lemon juice. Keep this sauce hot until needed and pour it over tlie cold
meat just before serving. Cold lamb or
veal may bo treated in the same manner.���Betty Bradoen in Boston Traveler.

1 Strange Funerals.
-A Chinese funeral, so the Celestials gay,
never proceeds straight from the house of
mourning to the .graveyard. The devil is-
alwaysron the lookout for funerals and
follows them to seize the soul of the dead
man, so that in order to outwit the evil
one the bearers take the body and start
with it in a brisk trot, while the, packs of
firecrackers and pyrotechnics emitting a
dense smoke and vile smell are set off
just as the procession starts. Having
thus deceived Old Nick as to the direction
taken by the bearers they run as fast as
they can with the body, then suddenly
turn a corner while more fireworks are
burned. The devil cannot turn a corner
easily, and so, if really in pursuit, he
shoots on by,' and by means of a good deal
of sudden turning aud stopping and a
lavish expenditure of fireworks the funeral procession generally gets to the
grave in safety.

His address was  confined chiefly to the various benefits denved by members of,the  Order. .We certainly felt, at its  conclusion that our esteem for the  organization had not been misplaced but rather, that we had  reason to be thankful because of  our connection therewith.  Songs, games, and different forms  of interesting recreations filled in a  great part of the time, and so  quickly did the evening pass that  the hour for going arrived all too  soon. Before^ dispersing,. however,  several patriotic songs were sung  including���������  The maple leaf, our emblem dear,  The maple leaf for ever,  God save our  King,  And Heaven bless  The maple leaf for ever.  We regretted very much that  more membes of the Order were  not with us especially - of those  belonging to " True Defender "  Lodge, No. 160, as the entertainment was one, both with regard to  the social and appetising part of it,  which would be difficult to surpass.
