Comox farmers are proverbially'slow,  and it is a matter for congratulacion  when some .up-to-date agriculturist comes  into the district, who can show them a  thing or two. A few of the farmers,  among whom maybe counted our new  friend, Mr.'Woodruff, occupant of the  Burdette ranch, had mown down a quantity of grass, just before the presentwet  spell set in. It was all liable to spoil,  but our new agriculturalist, thought it  might be cured. He reasoned thus:  The nearer the fire the hotter; the sun is  a ball of fire, therefore the nearer the sun  I get my weJ hay, the sooner it will dry.  The ranch was dotted with tall black  stumps; and upon the top of each he  placed a cock of hay. That was the  condition of things when our informant  left. It is said there is considerable  excitement in the valley. Some farmers  had dug, pulled or blown out their  stumps, not knowing they were their  best friends. Others, who have not been  so rash, and are still blessed with a  reasonable supply, fear Mr. Woodruff will  patent his idea. What his next move  will be is unknown but doubtless it will  be a long advance over the ordinary  methods.   ���������KELLEY the photographer has  returned, and is ready to wait on his.  many customers as usual.

WHAT A CHARM there is about a  neat well laid out town, where age  has softened, the outlines of pioneer  efforts ! The first essential, of course is  ���������ncorporation;'the next is public enterprise; the third is a love of home. Neat,  well kept streets, comfortable sidewalks,  attractive but not ostentatious .churches,  school*buildings, and business houses, go  a long way,' but roomy yards, green  lawns, beautiful shade trees, plants and  flowers,   "with    comfortable     home-like  ��������� dwellings constitute the chief beauty and  charm -of a ��������� town. ��������� And then a park L  This need be'only a strip of-forest with  brush and fallen trees cleaned oat, a  good dirt road, .and a few paths with  seats, etc., here and there; better still if  there be a stream running through it,  over, which are streched rustic bridges;  a'nd' still better if bordering, upon a lake  or the pebbly washed shore of the sea.  But any location- can be made beautiful.  Nature, is kind and will -generously  respond to the enterprise of man. Trees  will-grow anywhere and the most unsani-  ' tary places become salubrious and* the  unsightly waste- be made to smile with  abundant attractions. ' '  DO YOU ride a bicycle?

Farmers are hunting wolves in the  suburbs of Chicago. Why don't they  move right down Clark street?  The nut and bolt trust, which has  ���������been hanging together by a mere  thread, as it were, has at last goue to  pieces.  There is something really pitiable  -about the ignorance of"a clever trust  representative when he is brought before a legislative investigating committee.  A New York court has decided that  baby shows, are illegal. This tendency  of the judiciary to interfere in domestic affairs is one of tlie crying evils of  the times.        .,' * ���������   -  cians became suspicious and laid a plot,  which the unsuspecting woman walked  into.

By the time the doctor arrived  her mouth was in a frightful condition."  A worse blow to China than the exclusion lifw~is about to fall,,upon that  empire. The denizens of Colorado and  Western Kansas have learned that a  good quality of tea can be made from  alfalfa leaves and they are proposing  to build up a great home industry and  keep the millions of taels we send to  the Flowery Kingdom each year for  tea at home. Perhaps it will not be  long before chests of Maverick Oolong are on the market or Colorado  Chop Chow, or Cimarron Young Hyson.  As still further exemplifying the truth  of the proverb that there is nothing  new under the sun, it is .pointed out  that there was a horseless wagon as  early as 1861.   The horse ran away.  Another attempt is being made to prescribe' exactly the kind of food that  children shall eat, but as long as the  pantry door is left ajar the old-fashioned kinds of cake and jam will be  able to hold their own.  In the latest "Echoes from the Oxford Magazine," one of the humorous  ver.se-writers suggests that in the summer term, when the University is given  over to young lady teachers attending  the University - Extension lectures, it  should be called a "School of Flirtation." The examiners in it should then  prepare their questions in the following fashion:  "If A be good-looking and 20; ������   .

Senator-elect Harris of Kansas is not  only a classical scholar, but a hog raiser as well. He has six prize porkers  on his farm, which he has named, according to an esteemed contemporary,  Acestorides, Basterhini, Callistagoras,  Pachnamunis, Pythagoras, and Aris-  tides. Mr.-Harris contemplates sending  them to Greece about next killing time.  Milton has left his testimony of the  need that men have of intellectual capacity and cultivation in a wife. "Without it," he says, "there must come tho  unspeakable weariness and despair of  all social delight, which turns the blessed ordinance of God into a sore evil  -under the sun; or at least to a familiar  mischief, a drooping and disconsolate  ^household,"���������captivity without refuge  or reputation.  Candidates for the dishonor of being  the meanest husband are, fortunately, not abundant in the United States,  but occasionally they enter the lists.  One Kentucky benedict gave his wife  on the twenty-fifth Anniversary of their  wedding four yards of "domestic," out  of which she was'to make him a shirt,  this being the only gift from him in  tlie  quarter of a  century.    A strong  Dangw from Wall Paper.  It was formerly supposed that the  reason why wa.ll.papers containing arsenic were dangerous to health was because arsenette-d hydrogen was formed  through the action of mold upon' the  paper, and then given off In the air of  the room. Recent experiments in Germany, however,- seem to show that tlie  danger really arises from particles af  dust proceding from the paper. It is'  said that at present few wall-papers  containing arsenic are manufactured.  Gnardin-j a Coast by Klectrlcity.  A correspondent of Nature suggests  that a long coast-line may be rendered  safe to .ships in foggy weather, by  means of an electric cable lying ten  miles offshore, and parallel with the  coast, In about fifty fathoms of water.  When ever an iron ship approached  within 200 yards of the cable, he says,  an electric detector on board the vessel  would give the alarm In support of  the suggestion he asserts that messages  competitor is the Ohio man who gave ; sent along an electric cable lying on the  his wife but $10 in four years. Out of  this'she had to expend $5 to replace a  parasol for her sister, which the man  had lost, and he borrowed the remaining $5 of her to get his trunk out. of  pawn and forgot to pay it. The only  money he ever spent for her in any  way was a nickel paid for a .sack of  peanuts, of which he took the lion's  share. The wife was forced to clothe  herself and pay for her own board.  A recent issue of the Pueblo (Colo.)  'Chieftain contained the following interesting advertisement: "Wanted���������  iOBy a competent woman, a place to work  ;for her husband's board." This sounds  ;'like a Western echo of the "new woman" movement, but it probably is the  ���������work of the same "old" woman who  has been doing just that thing -every-'  iwhere, since the time whereof the memory of man runneth hot to the contrary.  In our early youth, while yet we live  only among those we love, we love  nvithout restraint, and our hearts overt-flow in every look, word and action.  ���������But when we enter the world, and are  repulsed by strangers, forgotten by  ���������friends, we grow more and more timid  dn our approaches even to those we  ���������love best. How delig-htful to us, then,  are the caresses of' little children! All  sincerity, all affection, they fly into our  arms; and then, and then only, we feel  our first confidence, our first pleasure.  An electric car going at full speed collides with a railway train, silso going at  full speed. As a'result three persons  are dead, one fatally injured and several others badiy hurt. The gates were  closed and the accident was caused by  the motor car.* which is one belonging  to the Calumet Electric Street Railway  Company, Chicago, becoming unmanageable, bursting through the guards  and rushing upon the track in front of  the express train. It is said that this  same motor performed t-he same trick  at the same place the prior Sunday,  happily without fatality at that time.  The officials of the company deny' this,  and ' say that- it was another motor  which gave the Sunday performance.  The company had, then, two unmanageable motors instead of one and kept  them running over this dangerous  crossing. One naturally asks how many  more wild trains the company owns,  ,.and what assurance passengers have  that a trip over its lines may be made  .'with safety to life and limb.  sea-bottom have been read, with suitable apparatus, on a ship floating above  the cable.  Mirage in  Alaska.  The most wonderful mirages ever beheld by mortal eyes are those that are  seen in the twilight winter days In  northern Alaska. Those remarkably  ghastly pictures of things, both imaginary' and real, are mirrored on the surface of the waste plains instead of upon  the clouds or in the atmosphere, says  a correspondent of the St. Louis Republic. Mimic lakes and water courses  fringed with vegetation are to be seen  pictured as real as life on the surface  of the snow, while grassy mounds,  stumps, trees, logs, etc., which have an  actual existence some place on the  earth's surface, are outlined against  mountains of snow ln all kinds of fantastic shapes. Some of these objects  are distorted and magnified into the  shapes of huge, ungainly animals and  reptiles of enormous proportions.'  The fogs and mists are driven across  these waters by the winds, and, as tho  objects referred to loom up In the flying-vapors, they appear like living crea-'  tures, and seem to be actually moving  rapidly across the plain.   At other times  they appear high in the air, but this is  a characteristic of the northern mirages  that are seen near the seashore.' When  the vapors and  mists are driven out  to sea the images mirrored In them ap--  pear to be lunging through the waters  at a terrific rate of speed, dashing the  spray high in the air, while huge break- j  ers roll over them and onward toward '  the mountainous islands beyond,  and  against  which  they all appear  to be  dashing.

The fossil remains of an apparently  new species of the ancient . reptile  named by geologists the "mosasaur"  have just been discovered in the chalk-  beds of Northern France. These rep-,  tiles; which became extinct,ages ago.  were of enormous size, some being seventy or more feet in length. They had  comparatively slender bodies, like a  snake, paddles like a whale, and some  of the characteristic features of a lizard. They were especially abundant in  America, and their remains have been  fonud in New Jersey and in the States  bordering the Gulf of Mexico, as well,  as west of the Mississippi River. .  back thirty to fifty feet in height, an!  mals and birds of all kinds of, horrible  shapes and colors, seem to be scurrying  past, racing- and chasing each other,  until they are lost In twilight fogs or  nteresting-  Story   Told   Under  -  < bari-assing Circumstances.  -  Prom the Express, Los Angeles, CalEfornln.

Sleep  eluded her at  night, always  and   ever  that dreadful,  feeling  of lassitude and depression, so.;'  familiar to women, made itself apparentJ  to  her.    And then she  began   to  im-.  agine things.    One night'whi'le driving  across a bridge that sbe knew perfectly  well was- there, she cried out in fright  because  she  could   see nothing.

An   episode   of   student   playfulness  which has just been made public shows  that these young men at Rochester are  worthy of  high  rank   in  the  college  world for their ingenuity In devising  methods  of  torturing each other.    A  freshman was the victim, and when he  had been "finished" he was a "raving  maniac."    He was beaten by some sophomores so severely that although he  did not lose his life he lost his mind.  This must have been rare college sport.  One can picture the zest with   which  these young men entered into the game  of pommeling their fellow-student until his physical endurance and then his  mind gave way under the strain.    It  must have been a spectacle something  like that in the cell of Dr. Ruiz in Cuba  when Spanish brutes were beating out  his life.   Now let the police department  of Rochester show the world how fast  they can avenge this outrage.   Pour the  entire detective machinery of the city,  if necessary, into this college and hunt  out these demons who are masquerading as students.   It is time an example  should be madeof such brutes as these,  and few opportunities could be better  than this.  .,    A Vanished   River's Track.  Explorations made last, autumn  brought to light many interesting facts  about what is known to geologists as  the "Nipissing-Mattawa? River." ������This  is believed to have been the ancient  outlet for the . Great Lakes Huron,  Michigan and Superior before tfaeir waters began to flow through Lake Erie.  The old river bed was traced, in the  Canadian province of Ontario," from  Lake Nipissing, near the northern part  of Georgian Bay, to the valley of the  Ottawa River. At, one place the site of  an ancient cataract was discovered,  and reason was found for believing  that the size of the vanished river was  very similar to that of the' St. Glair  and Detroit Rivers, through which the  Great Lakes now have their outlet.

"  Among the minor wonders of modern chemical discovery are Doctor  Lehman's "liquid crystals." ' Recently  Professor Miers, of the Royal Society,  has been experimenting with some of  these curious substances, and he. finds  that when "azoxyphenol" crystals are  warmed on a microscopic slide they undergo a sudden transformation from  the solid to the liquid condition on  reaching a temperature of 134 degrees.  Yet, having become liquid, the substance nevertheless retains the form  of crystals, and these remarkable crystals possess the property of double refraction. If heated up to 165 degrees,  the substance undergoes another  change, and loses its double refrac-  tivity.  Is Tt nn Ancient Alphabet?  Monsieur Piette has made some remarkable discoveries in-a cave at Le  Mas-d'Azil, in Southern France, near  the Pyrenees. This cave, shaped like  a tunnel, was evidently inhabited in  very ancient days by the race of people called the "cave-dwellers" who  lived in the Neolithic, or Later Stone,  age. They left a great number of oblong and flattened pebbles on which  they had painted curious figures and  devices with peroxide of iron. Some of  the pebbles contain only dots, or  stripes, which, the discoverer thinks,  may have been symbols for numbers.  Others bear devices having some resemblance   to   alphabetic   characters.  One pebble has  painted upon it  the singular row  of figures here  represented, and Monsieur Piette does  not hesitate to suggest that some of  these designs are possibly phonetic  symbols, which had a definite mean-  The-Children's Sleep.  A physician in ah address before a  woman's club on the care of children'-*  health, recently said that it'is criminal  to attempt to save a little money by  not giy.ing every^child In the family a  bed ��������� tdc himself. Tlie'' physician aJso  emphasized "the need of early sleep.  "It is so easy," he said, "to let a nervous child lose sleep in the early evening, when he or she should be hard at  it. When a physician prescribes some  important remedy that must be taken  and which is not pleasant, a mother  feels that it Is time well expended to  coax and wheedle, and even bribe the  little one to'-swallow, it. Spend just as  much thought and effort in getting your  child to sleep every night, if he does  hot fall off his chair at the evening  meal, from drowsiness, as the normal  child should. .Give up concerts, theaters, ������������������ parties', anything till you have  sectired for the nervous, .twitching boy  or girl the benign habit of sleep.

Tell him gentle, soothing  stories, nothing to excise his imagination, and when he is finally asleep,  have the room cool, dark and quiet.  Don't let him try to sleep in a room  which has been a sitting rooni all the  evening, without having' it thoroughly  refilled with fresh outdoor air, which  may be accomplished by throwing windows wide open for fifteen minutes."  The Buffalo Nearly Exterminated.  Gen. A. W; Greeley, of the. War Department, in a paper read recently, deplored the wholesale slaughter of the  buffaloes which has been going on for  50 years and which has well-nign exterminated this useful animal. From  the lips of an old army offlcer he ascertained that in the valley of the Arkansas hesaw in the '40s an enormous herd  of buffalo terrifying even to look upon.  The old army officer says he crossed at  right angles a moving herd which was  75 miles in width ana so dense as to  render travel dangerous. The general  himself saw 50 miles of territory literally covered with bison.

THIRD     ANNIVERSARY    OF  FORWARD MOVEMENT.  THE  Organization that Is Doing: Much, to  Improve the Condition of the Poor  in the Congested and Poverty-Ridden Districts of'Chicago.  Seeks to Banish Squalor. '  Chicago corressponddnce:  The Forward Movement recently celebrated its third anniversary at the  headquarters of the association, on  iWest Harrison ' street, this city. Addresses were made and exhibitions given by pupils of the different classes.  The Forward Movement is one of the  most comprehensive and phlli-sophic social movements now being carried on  ln this great and wicked Western metropolis. The association's ob.iect, as  stated In its charter, is to. investigate  and improve Hie physical, social, intellectual and spiritual condition of those  who live In tho,congested districts of  Chicago and other cities.  The charter further states the means  ���������and methods to be used in carrying ont  this' object to bo:, By collecting and  publishing statistics' bearing on social  and Industrial conditions; by establishing radiating centers'--of personal  Influence; by promoting the application  of the co-operative principle, "and by  such' temporary aid as shall tend to  make the beneficiaries self-sustaining  and self-respecting.  ''This'association is non-sectarian and  non-partisan, depending upon- those  who are interested in the welfare of  liumanity for its workers and support.  It has already accomplished much that  Is commendable. It has under its  ���������charge a Social Settlement known os  the Epworth House, located'on Pearce  ���������street. The Epworth House represents  six or eight.workers who devote their  ception for the neighborhood. The second Friday of each month is devoted to  a temperance meeting, the' third to a-  stereopticon exhibition, and the fourth  tp entertainments given by some of the  clubs of girls or boys. On Wednesday  nights pf each week there is a citizens'  meeting, at which matters pertaining  to the welfare of the community are  discussed.   On Friday night there is a  four years.

After his release from prison he went to Rome, an  exile from his diocese.

' Sunday  afternoon is held a Sunday school, and  at night Dr. Gray, the founder and  present superintendent of the movement, preaches. While these exercises  are going on at the hall there are also  various clubs, lectures, etc., at the Epworth House.  The, district in which the Forward  Movement has located itself is unique  in its representative, character. Perhaps there can be found nowhere else  in the United States a more interesting  field of studv than that section of the  ly welcomed by This and lived at the  Vatican. In 1SS4 he was appointed secretary of memorials, and in 1892 he  was given the lofty* position from  which he has just been* deposed.    Al-  Ll ALL   AT   COJSGRESS   AND   HALSTED   STREETS.  During the past winter the Association has here given beds to 50,000 homeless.  entire time to the social, intellectual  and. spiritual uplifting of the people  living on the West Side. The fundamental idea of the work is that of  neighborly visitation. Of this Miss M.  E. Dix has charge.    She devotes her  DB. G. W. GKAT.  entire time to visiting among the people, ascertaining if any are sick or need  eomfort or consolation in any way  whatever. She has under her supervision several non-resident visitors. A  ���������corps of physicians hold themselves  ready to attend upon any of the poor  wlio are sick and unable to pay a family physician.  These workers live in the midst of  the people to be benefited, come in eon-  tact with them day by day, know their  needs and minister to them. They do  much more than simply dispense charity; in fact, they avoid charity-giving  ; as much as possible, preferring to furnish opportunities for the people to  earn what they need. The Epwor-ii  House has become the recognized  ���������friend of the poor in its section'1 of the  .city.  The little children from 3 to 6 years  ot age are gathered into a kindergarten  which meets at the Forward Movement  Hall, on Harrison street. In order that  these children can attend, most of them  inave to be furnished with clothing, as  the parents are not able to provide for  ithem. T<his work is under Miss  Krause, as principal.  In Forward Movement Hall are held  classes, clubs and meetings of various  kinds. On Mondays and Thursdays  classes in scientific cooking for young  ladies are taught, where these girls can  ibeeome approved cooks of the highest  order. On the first Friday night of  Wen month there is held a general re-  city. Here representatives from almost  all nations of the earth are to be found.  In some parts the language is that of  Sweden and Norway, in others Italy,  in others Russia, and in many places  the English language is almost unknown. One of the great needs of these  people is an opportunity for the cultivation of social life, and* this, among* its  other features, is offered by the Forward Movement.  CARDINAL  LEDOCHOWSKI.  Said to Have Been   Deposed from the  Prefecture of the Propaganda.  Cardinal Mieeislas Ledochowski, who  is reported to have been deposed from  the prefecture of the propaganda by the  Pope, earned the displeasure of the  Vatican by leaning too much toward  Germany and too little toward France.  His eminence is one of the most prominent of the princes of line church at  Rome.   He is 75 years old and is a na-  CAKDIXA-I*  LEDOCUOWSKI.  though a very aged man.

When the Zoo opened for business  yesterday morning. Headk'eeper Man-  ley stepped from his office and took a  survey of the grounds. Almost the  first thing that caught his eye was a big  bird perched on top of the lion house,  and by bringing a field glass to' bear  upon it, he discovered that it was not  an escaped pet, but a wild, red-tailed  hawk, and a magnificent specimen. His  hunter's instincts were aroused, and  he laid a plan to capture it. Getting a  steel trap the'keeper fastened it on the  end of a pole, which he set up on tbe  lawn, in plain view of his intended victim. Then he brought out a live pigeon, tied it to a stake near by, nnd  ��������� retired to a distance. Scarcely had  Manley gone into concealment before  the hawk riveted its attention on the  bait. Leaving its high perch, it swooped around and alighted on the convenient pole, preparatory to a final dart  at its prey. The instant its feet settled  on the trap the jaws closed with a  snap, holding it a fast prisoner. Man-  ley ran up, and, releasing the hawk,  found it a greater prize than he had  imagined. It was one of the largest of  its kind, measuring five feet four inch-  NEW VOTING  MACHINE.  Almost   Human   Device   that   Makes  Unerrinjr, Kecord of Ballots Cast.  A new vote- recording machine that  overcomes several objections to voting  machines heretofore exhibited, is being built in Cincinnati. The illustration  shows tlie machine with one. booth  open ready for voting, the middle booth  partially open, giving a good view of  the voting slots. The third booth closed,'  as all would be when the machine is  not in use.  This machine, as compared - with  others, is inexpensive, and as three men  can vote at once, has remarkable speed.  Instead of a complicated voting device  for each candidate it simply has a  plain voting slot for each office. This  arrangement admits an unlimited number of candidates without changing the  size of the machine. But the most  salient feature is that the voter sees  exactly how he votes. In other machines the voter has no evidence whatever, but must trust the machine with*-  out knowing how his vote i.s cast.  The voter is registered on the poll  lists as in all elections, then he enters  the-booths by, means of the swinging  front door. By an automatic connection the machine is unlocked. ' The  voter now decides whether he will vote"  a straight or mixed ticket���������if a straight  ticket he raises the lower latch, which  instantly opens the straight ticket slot,  and at the same time locks all the slots  for voting the mixed ticket.' Then he  takes up the stamp of his party and  prints the name of his party on the  ballot within the machine. Walking  out the doors swing in an opposite direction and throws that ballot or vote  into the machine, locks it up and leaves  it ready for the next voter.  To vote a mixed ticket the' voter  presses down the upper latch. This instantly opens the slots for every office,  and at the same time locks the straight  ticket slot, and the mechanism carrying the ballot so that it   cannot    be  ried in the pocket, and a flexible wire,  insulated and covered with chamois  skin, passes from the battery and  through the pocket down to the lamp  THE   FOOT LAMP.  into the foot. In this way a., bright,  light is secured, the little battery furnishing sufficient electricity for a walk  of half a dozen hours.  ��������� A Barbarous Custom.  Though the "fashion" of tattooing  among boys and young men has fortunately gone out to a great extent, there  are still some who consider it fine and  manly to have themselves decorated  with figures and emblems. How completely barbarous this practice-is may  be learned from the writings of travelers. The most savage races have been  most given to tattooing, and the practice seems curiously associated with  cannibalism.  The Fijians were tattooers in their  barbarous period, but were surpassed  in-this "art" by the New Zealanders,  who also undoubtedly practiced cannibalism. Elaborate tattooing ,was among  them a mark of honor."  Among the Maoris, or New Zealand-  ers, there were two classes who were*  exempt from this -"embellishment."  One of these consisted of the slaves,  and the others were the women of the  ordinary class. Both slaves and women wero despised, and not deemed "worthy of the honor of tattooing. Only  women of high rank were permitted to  THE   VOTING   MACHINE.  moved neither backward nor forward.  The voter now stamps the name of the  candidate's party through the office  slots. ���������-  To vote for a man not on the ticket-  often taken advantage of in local elections���������he writes his name in full, together with the office, on a slip of paper and deposits it in a large slot at the  bottom of the machine. He then writes  or stamps his initials in the slot of the  .office for which,he voted.  That voting machines would simplify  and render safe elections, and are a  possibility of the near future, there can  be no doubt, since fradulent votes could  not be cast, and every vote would be  counted exactly as the voter intended,  the result being determined in as many  minutes as it now takes hours.  This would avert the difficulties in  the recent elections of South Dakota,  Wyoming and Tennessee, as a disputed  ballot would be impossible.  The result would have been different  in Kentucky. Mr. Bryan carried an  elector by over 2.000. Had a machine  been used he would probably have carried all. As it is evident that when a  voter votes for the first elector his intention is to vote for all. Had Kentucky been a pivotal State this would  have been a grave national question.  The same thing happened in 1S92.  When Mr. Cleveland carried the first  elector of Ohio, but lost the balance.  The people are entitled to a perfect  system of voting, but it has not been  realized in the Australian method, as  it is open to fraud in many ways, besides causing the voter to vote in such  a way that thousands of disputed votes  are thrown out, sometimes enough in  some States to turn tlie scale if all had  been counted.  EPWORTH   HOUSE.  tive of. Poland, where his family has  been an illustrious one for centuries.  The Cardinal was given his theological  education in a college of the Lagaris ts  at Warsaw and was ordained at the  very early age of 18. After that he  went to Rome to pursue his studies  further and was taken . up and advanced by Pius IX., who was very  fond of him. Ledochowski was named  domestic prelate and protonotary apostolic. Pius confided several important  diplomatic missions to the learned  Pole. Among them was a mission to  Madrid, another to Lisbon, a third to  Rio de Janeiro and a fourth to Santiago de Chili. In 1861 he was made  archbishop of Thebes, in partibus in-  fidelium, and sent to the nunciature  at Brussels,  where  he remained  for  es from tip to tip of wings, and a decided acquisition for the Zoo's collection., Many animals and birds have  been sent to the Zoo and others have  been purchased, but this hawk is believed to be the only wild creature of  any account that ever entered of Its  own accord.���������Philadelphia Record.

Genius has given fashionable folks a  new plaything with which to amuse  themselves. It is in literal obedience  to the biblical injunctiqn regarding a  lamp unto the feet, for that is exactly  where the new light is to be ,worn. It  consists of a tiny lantern with sides  of very stout glass, mounted upon a  stirrup which straddles the foot of the  user, a tongue resting on the toe of the  foot, and acting as a part of the support.  There are several means of furnishing light for this curious lamp. Electricity and oil are the most common.  Tbe former is likely to be the most  popular method from the fact that  there is no danger of grease leaking out  upon the shoe. A tiny storage battery  has been constructed to be used In furnishing the light.    It is ordinarily car-  have a scroll embroidered, as it were,  on each side of the chin.  The sort of savagery that went with  this custom may be inferred from a  startling fact in the early history of the  colony of New Zealand. The chiefs  lea rned that elaborately tattooed heads  brought a price from collectors for the  British Museum and other European  museums of anthropology. Never until .then had Maori slaves been tattooed;  but now the chiefs had slaves decorated with their own lordly designs, in  order that they might cut off their  heads and sell them to the European  collectors!  ICE BICYCLE.  Kasily Propelled, and   Skims Ice ana  Snow Like the Wind.  In order that bicyclists should not  be deprived of their favorite sport  in winter, a curious machine has been  made out of a bicj^cle in Germany,  suitable for riding on ice and sledge  roads. The front wheel is unscrewed,  tlie front bars lengthened, and a long-  sledge runner fastened beneath.    The  ICE   BICYCLE.  back wheel is covered with a band in  which iron points are fixed, which prevent slipping, and give the wheel a,  better hold on the smooth surface. On  hard-ridden roads the new machine  runs at the usual speed, but on the ice  it seems to ;fiy along with very little-  exertion on 'the part of the rider. A  similar machine is in use on the great!  Canadian lakes, and in the United]  States.  Pennsylvania Children Go to School.

W' E hear the remark which we have  placed at the head of ,this article as a  ���������caption, quite frequently lately- And it  is true. We see very few upon the streets.  Everything is quiet���������not the mines, but  ���������the people. There never was' a time  when there was more work to be done.  ��������� Tbe amount of coal dug is gratifyingly  large-; there.seems to be a "demand for all  v-e-ean turn out���������for steam purposes and  coke. The miners are not upon the  street, because they are at work, or quiet  ly resting at home preparatory to going  on to the next shift. The laborers aie  all employed,���������there is plenty of work  t{or everybody with willing hands. The  roads are furnishing work, the Water  Works Co., are requiring more -workmen,  fhe coke works, and new bunkers give  work to many. There is not a better  place in Briti di Columbia for men able.  and willing to work than here.  Il seems dullbecause there are no non-  ���������workers roaming about, filling  the  hotel  i-  verandah?, filing into the  saloons, driving  lively teams  fiercely through the streets;  filling   the   air     with   their    boisterous  laughter.    The rough   class have .largely  gone   Jo the  gold fields   where it is to be  hoped they will remain.  There are more women in town than  ever before; more families; more who  keep their gains instead of squandering  them. Doubtlesr there are many who  had gotten behind last year, who arc-  paying up���������getting on to their feet, so to  speak.  Then again many borrowed money  from the Loan Companies, on the monthly plan to build themselves homes. They  are steadily paying oft" their indebtedness;  but of course the'money is going out of  town. In a few years this drain will  stop. The town was never in so healthy  a condition as at present. People are  not going ih debt, but are steadily bettering their condition. The town is steadily  improving. The great need now is to  get nd of a.few more, "calamity howlers,"  those who don't like the place; the discontented. These l?st are only a few in  number, but they make a great noise.  They are only happy when they are miserable. We don't want them here, and  they would be a curse to any place to  which they may go.  The Water-Works will soon be in  operation in our main street. Our greatest danger from .fire is just at present.  Care should be exercised at all time?, but  the good citizen will safe-guard himself  and neighbors by unusual vigilance until  the water is turned on. In the mean  time why are not those ladders distributed?  to the present. Whether he has improved his chances remains to be seen.

Sooner or later, however, the mistake is learned, but not always until injury  has been done. It is not only necessary  to be right but important to appear so.  Public opinion is strong enough to destroy  anyone. Of course if one has nothing to  loose, he has nothing to fear; but that  class is contemptible, and need not be  considered, lt is usually the young and  inexperienced who affect independance.  They ooon become objects of suspicion  and suspicion in the minds of many  too often settles down into a verity.  The laws restrain'from outward crime;  but good - wholesome public opinion  often keeps the social'-1 life pure.  It is a necessary restraint to many," and  its mandates are founded in reason.  When one affects therefore to be superior, if you will, to what others think  there is something wrong. People have  faith in others if their conduct is  such as to justify it. Though appearances  are often deceptive, when ' continued they  cannot be ignored, and if unexplained  will be received as good evidence.  TITLES   CONFERRED.'  As was expected a large number of  titles were conferred Jubilee D,iy; and  Canadians have received their share, but  nonelhave fallen to British Columbians.  They are undesirable in a country like  this where distinctions-are more or less  odious. They are not an aid politically  rather a burden. We are glad tli.it so  far    Mr.   Gladstone     has   resisted   the  *���������' -,  temptation. We honor him for it. As  the first citizen of the British empire, he  is easily conspicious wi.hout .i badge. It  would have popularized -Lnurier had he  declined the tinpty honor of ���������kivghthood.  But perhaps that would have been too  much to expect from a gentleman of  French extraction. He is worthy of any  honors which have been conferred, and  because he is worthy, did not need them.  As Privy Councillor, however, he can be  of much,service, and we heartily rejoice  that he has been called to that high  office. '  School Trustees.  On Hornby Island Mr. Geo. Heatherbell  was re-elected trustee.  Oa Denina-i Ialaud Mr. T. H. Piercy was  elected in place of Mr. A. McMillan, whose  term had expired.  Win. Duncan was elected as trustee in the  Courtenay school district.  In the Puntledge school district Wm.  Grieve was re-elected trustee.  EXIT HIGGINS.  So Mr. Speaker Higgins is to leave the  government! Well, he has been looking  toward the Opposition for some time.  But why go to Kootenay to make the  announcement? Why did he not exercise the courte-iey to notify his own constituency when he proposed to make a  change of base? Why does he not  resign and permit them to elect some  one who will represent them?  The fact is Mr. Higgins is after a  bigger loaf than the Speakership. That  plum alone has kept him m the traces up  How They Are Wod in Georgia.  Georgia   has  a judge  who   uses  the  following formula when marrying couples:  "By the authority vested in me as an  officer of the State of Georgia, which is  sometimes called the Empire State of the  South; by the fields of cotton that spread  about in snowy whiteness around us; by  the howl of the coon dog, and the gourd  vine whose clinging tendrils will shade  the entrance to your humble dwelling  place; by the red and luscious watermelon, whose sweetness fills the heart with  joy; by the heavens and earth���������in the  presence of these witnessess, I pronounce  you man and wife."  ���������Selected.

True to Life.  The only patroness of Burns, Mrs, Dunlop  of Dunlop, had an old housekeeper, an especially privileged person, who had certain  aristocratic notions of the family dignity  which made the admiration of her mistress  for the rustic poet Incomprehensible to her.  In order to overcome this prejudice, Mrs.  Dunlop gave her a copy of "The Cotter's  Saturday Night,'' which the poet had j ust  written.  The old housekeeper read the poem, but  when her mistress inquired her opinion of it,  she replied with indifference, "Aweel madam, that's vera weel."  "Is that all you have to say in its favor ?''  asked Mrs. Dunlop in amazement.  ���������'Indeed, madam," returned the old woman, "the like o' your quality may Bee a  vast deal in't. But I was aye used to the  like-o' all that the poet has ���������������������������������iu<*n about in  my father's house, and I dinua ken ho v he  could hae described it ony other way."  It is said that Burns counted the old  housekeeper's criticism one of the highest  compliments he had ever received.  He probably valued it as greatly as a writer of New England stories values a remark  once made to her by an old tnau.  "I should think when you're writing stories you'd like the kind o' makeup things  more," said this aged critic in a tone of kind  ly reproof. "Now my wife and I were talk  in' about your la3t book the other day, and  my wife says to me, "Why John, there's  just such folks and such things happenin'  right in this very town, as she's written  down in this book, and most likely been  well paid for," aod I couldn't staod up for  ye against her, for I knew 'twas the truth."  ���������Youth's Companion.

He might  lose his monthly stipend of $30 in one  night, hut he could run "some of a bill,"  for he had an all winter's job ahead of  him, and the profit on the goods was so  many hundred per cent, that the host  could afford to take the chances. And  then, you know, if he got real hard up  he could get a few horses to break, and  $5 was easily earned by riding something that no one else would. It was a  little risky, to be sure; but then how  else could cow-punchers die if not rolled on or trampled to death by some terrified horse.   So tlie game went on.  The wind howled around the log  building, and the fine snow sifted  through some of the cracks where mud  daubing had fallen out. The box stove  roared and got red in the cheeks in an  unsuccessful attempt to keep a pail of  water that stood in a far corner from  freezing. Notwithstanding* its efforts,  the crinkle of the ice was heard as the  cold outside increased, and penetrating  the cracks fought back the efforts of  the stove.  It was about 10 o'clock in the morning, but the sun was onl3r up an hour or  so, and the ice-laden storm from the  north was-^iaking a very successful attempt to conceal the fact. A "blue fog"  ���������was rolling through the gap, and the  mercury had all dropped into the bulb,  tired of trying to keep track of the eccentricities of a climate borrowed for  - the occasion from the snowy wastes of  British America.   ,  The game went on at the' table in a  quiet kind of  way.      Every  time the  range-rider moved  his foot   the   spur  chains jingled on the floor.  The stage-  stock tender on the other side of the table was playing his best, for, he knew  ���������he had reached the limit of his credit  at the bar, but' the cards were against  him.   Two sheep-herders completed the  quartette,'  and    the . sneaky-looking,  blear-eyed stock-tender sized* them up  with a glance that boded ill if they perchance, fell asleep before the till behind  the bar had received their rolls, earned  .    by standing out on the hills   in   the  storms of the six or seven months past.  Two wet colley dogs lay by the stove  with smoking pelts, dreaming   of  the  trail, for every once in a while one of  them   would give a curious "yip-yip"  ���������that suggested  efforts  to  get a slow  ���������band of sheep into the corral.   The bartender stood with his elbows   on   the  counter, peering out of   the   window  and waiting for the inevitable moment,  that occurred at more or less regular  intervals, when some one of the players    would   "go   broke,"   requiring    a  round of drinks, a dollar added to the  steadily increasing store in the till, and  a redivision of the chips.  After doing the honors on one of  ���������these occasions, he opened the door, admitting a cold blast of air and snow  that made the card players swear. And,  peering out, he said:  "Time fur the stage. I guess the Kid  must ha' missed the trail."  "Well, what if he has?" growled the  '' stock tender, to whom the arrival of  the stage meant an hour of cold and  disagreeable work. "It's no use freezing us to death lookin' for him; he's no  chicken.' '  The sheep-herders laughed, the range-  rider yawned, when a rattling of  ���������wheels aud harness and a cheerful  "hullo" outside caused the game to be  forgotten, and all made a rush to the  door. They were greeted by two or  three mail sacks thrown with considerable force; and as the stocktender led  away the horses the driver, a great  ���������bundle of blankets, shawls and buffalo  robe, rolled off his seat and followed  ���������the mail sacks, ns they were dragged  through the saloon by the barkeeper,  into the store beyond.  After the driver had loosened up his  outer wraps and melted the frost from  (his eyelashes, he looked around and  nodded to those present. When his eye  dit on the range-rider, he said:  "Hullo. Bill; I saw Campbell at the  ���������river, and he sent a note to you. Here  ���������it is," and he handed a piece of paper  to the rider. Bill looked at it a moment,  end then whispered softly to himself,  glancing out of the window at the  scurrying snow  meanwhile,  "He wants you to go down the south  side of the Gap and see If them Basin  cattle that has drifted through are bad-  lly mixed up with the Musselshell outfit,  ;so he told me," said the driver. "He  (Said fur you to go down this morning,  ���������stop over night at the O.

He changed  his course and rode up closer to read  the brands.    They were covered with  frost, but he was satisfied that  these !��������� currency and banking concerning the  rency Speech   Created a Stir.  Congressman William A. Calderhead,  whose speech before the committee on  ing?"  "I suppose so," said the driver. "He  said if you didn't go now it would be  no use later, fur the cattle would be  scattered sure, and the Basin round-up  would lose a heap."  The cow-puncher made no reply, but  stepping up to the bar he said: "Give  me a drink, Jack; it'll take considerable  of your stuff to keep a man from freez-  in' to death to-day." Taking a liberal  dose of the liquor referred to he pulled  up the belt of his leather "chaps," adjusted his six-shooter, and taking a  blanket-lined canvas overcoat from a  nail on the wall, pulled it on. He then  tied a silk handkerchief over his ears  and pulled his sombrero well down over  his eyes. "So-long," he said as he went  out the door. "I'll be back to-morrow  night and play you another stack'of  freeze-out," and the clank of his spur-  chains was deadened in the snow as  he went out to the stable.  "This is tough business, Mike," he  said as he tightened up the saddle  cinches on* his sorrel horse, that was  standing in the barn. "Some day you  an' I'll retire from cow-punchin' an' be  honest grangers, an' then no bloody  boss can order us out when we don't  want to go; an'' instead of some old  greasy buck to cook our meals; we'll  have a nice little woman"���������here the  adept hand stopped in its adjustment  of the straps, and a reverie followed  that caused the   expectant   horse   to  were the cattle he was after; and what  was more, that there were several hundred of them in this one bunch. The  best service he could render his employers was to bunch this outfit, turn  them toward the Gap, and take them  back the next day before they scattered. ,  The puncher's mind   was   strangely  dimmed. ���������  His thoughts would  revert  to days when, on the old Missouri farm  in the States,  he lay at noon in the  shade of the  haystack and   ate   the  bountiful  lunch'  provided  by    mother  and sisters.   He could hear the water  pouring  over  the  old  mill-dam down  below the orchard���������and then he was in  the orchard.  But this would never do.  He was now on the Montana prairie,  one of the best cow hands in the Basin,  and here ,was a bunch of cattle to be  taken care of; he and Mike  were all  that   stood   between   their   employers  and the loss of several thousand dollars.    The puncher, rolled the big rowels of his spurs into Mike's sides, the  game cow-pony  sprang forward, and  they went around and around the cattle until they had them bunched.    It  was hard work to get them'strung out  against the storm; they would do nothing but mill, for the frosty air cut like  needles in their faces when they turned in the direction the solitary puncher,  was trying to make them go.   But he  found himself strangely lacking that  life    and    energy    which    had ��������� won  him    his    wide ' reputation    on     the  ranges.   Sleep hung heavy on his eyes.  He rolled in the saddle, and when Mike  made one of his, famous quick turns his  rider clung to the horns of the saddle  to keep from falling off.   Suddenly it  seemed to the puncher that it was getting dark; the herd was but a dim outline; the wind tore at the bunches of  sage and grease wood, piling up the  snow on one'side"and cutting out caves  on the other.   The rider was warm and :  cold at intervals.    His mind wandered '  to the last fall drive, when on the'night '  herd   he < was   wont to slip from his  horse and seek, the friendly cover of a  bin to establish an international bank  created such a'stir at Washington, is  reported the ablest orator on the Kansas delegation.

But the horse simply saw  his master leaning his head on a hand  that rested on the saddlehorn, and he  moved impatiently.  "No," said the rider slowly, "that will  no.t be, Mike; fur they ain't fur such as  we;" and giving an extra pull on the  front -cinch that caused Mike to kick  and snort, the rider put the bridle on  the horse and led him out of the low  log stable. The storm still raged furiously, and it Was bitter cold. With a  glance at the sky and a muttered oath  he placed his hand on the horn, climbed  Into the saddle with an easy, practiced  swing, and started toward the south,  following in the snow the fast disappearing trail of the stage that had preceded him but a few minutes.  He rode in this direction for some  time. The storm, which was at their  backs, did not seem much to these two,  hardened to the parching wind of summer and the freezing blast of winter in  that open country. The puncher rolled  a cigarette or two. He noticed the cold  was sharp on his fingers when he ungloved, and it was -with considerable  difficulty that he kept his eyes free  from frost; but that would make a  story to tell on the hot and dusty drive  next summer. He passed a few stray  cattle, and with practiced eye read the  brands as coming from the round-up  he represented. Leaving the stage road  to the right, outlined by the two high  ridges of hard packed snow crunched  by the wheels of the daily stages, he  bore down toward the Careless Creek  drainage. The hills looked all the same  In the driving storm, but the wind was  steady and gave him a clew to direction- Suddenly there loomed up in front  buffalo wallow, or a badger hill, topped .  by   bunch of sage, to slip the long bri- |  die line over his arm and curl up on \  the ground within the friendly shelter j  and sleep.   Why not now? The shelter  was better for the drifted snow, and he  was so sleepy.   A few moments' rest  and he would be able to resume his solitary watch and hold the herd until day. i  He slid from his horse and followed out j  the suggestion.    It was cozy and com- j  fortable.   Mike swung his hindquarters j  toward the north, clamped his tail be- j  tween his legs, humped his back and .  philosophically nodded off to sleep. The  puncher slept also.  *       *       *       ���������*������       *       *       41       *  The sun rose next morning on a  scene of crystal splendor dazzling to  the eye, and when the two men who  lived at 0. H. home ranch rode out that  morning they were nearly blinded by  the glare.  "We'll look up the north fence first,"  said the foreman to the other. "The  cattle may have broken it down yesterday in the storm."  As they rode along the fence, but a  few rods from the cabins and corrals  they saw on the other side an animal  motionless on the prairie. When they  approached they saw that it was a saddled horse, covered with snow and ice.  Putting spurs to their mounts they  rode rapidly in that direction. The  shivering brute on the other side of the  fence heard them coming, pricked up  his ears, whinnied and pawed the  ground, but did not move away; his bridle rein was around an arm that could  not relax its grip. For Bill Anderson,  with a smile of peace upon his face,  had slept through his last game of  freeze-out, and the bar to which he was  now called, to make final settlement,  was the Bar of Judgment  Bread Upon the Waters.  The Greek proverbial phrase, "lo  sow in the ocean," indicated thankless  labor. Said a Greek poet, 'five hundred  years before the daAvn of Christianity:  Vain is thy bounty, giving to the base,  -  Like scattering seed upon the salt sen's  plain;  Sowing  the  sea,   thou   shalt  no  harvest  reap,  Nor,  giving  to  the  vile,- reward  shalt  gain.  But a Hebrew, writer, rising above  the selfish prudence of the Greek, bids  men not to be afraid ��������� of doing good,  even when they may not hope for a return.    "Cast thy bread," he says, "upon the waters, for thou sbalt find it  after many days."   Sooner or later they  shall reap as they  have  sown,   even  though they scattered their seed-corn  upon the face of the thankless/waters.  An item floating through the press illustrates the Hebrew's* meaning.    . '\  During the years of his prosperity  Gov.   Charles. Foster   of    Ohio     Avas  known far and wide for his kindness to"  the poor and unfortunate.    Years ago  his father built the house at Fostoria,  Ohio,  now  occupied by  Mr.  Foster's  mother.   The contractor, a man named  Johnson, became so involved that the ;  mortgage on his house was foreclosed,'  and the sheriff about to sell it.   Charles  Foster learned of the builder's trouble,  and advanced the money to pay off the  mortgage,  though  there  was  a  very  faint prospect that it would ever be returned to him.  A year or two after Contractor Johnson went West, and passed out of thet  minds of his Fostoria friends. He  died, but before his death he told his  sons how Mr. Foster had befriended  him. The sons prospered in business  and became wealthy; but Mr. Foster  became a bankrupt. When they heard  of the failure of their father's benefactor they invested in his name $50,-  000 in smelting works between Denver  and Cripple Creek. But they said not  a word to Mr. Foster until the success  of the investment was assured. Then  thej7* told him, and had him elected a  director in the concern. The works  now pay large dividends.  Plain  AVords.  Freeman, the historian, was apt to  grow irritable over matters of intellectual difference. One day he was at  the Macmillans', and when the conversation turned upon the subject of Ireland Mr. Macmillan said that, for his  part, he was in favor of granting autonomy.  This set Freeman to growling at the  use of a Greek word.  "Why can't you speak English," said  he, "and say Home Rule, instead of  using Greek, which you don't know?"  One of the guests flushed with anger,  and ventured to reprove him, calling  his attention to the respect due their  host, and at the same time paying  tribute to Mr. Macmillan's remarkable  abilities. But although Freeman did  not apologize in so many words, hr  smoothed the matter over by a humorous repetition of his criticism. Late;  ln the evening gout was mentioned.

One of her  favorite diversions is to la-sso a wild  Texas steer, saddle and bridle Mm,  mount upon his back and turn him  loose upon the prairie. She claims that  these animals are quite as easily subdued as the average broncho. This daring young lady is 16 years of age, tall  and handsome, with unusually pleasant manners, and no one from casual  observation wonld imagine for a moment that she possesses so much nerve  and almost reckless courage.

An exchange tells a story of a well-  known Judge who is noted for his fondness for conveying in his charges to  jurors, his own opinions in regard to  the merits of the case in hand: Recently, in giving such a charge, he expressed his views very plainly, but to  his amazement the jury remained out  for some hours.  The judge inquired of the officer what  ���������was the matter, and learned from him  that one juror was holding out against  the other eleven. He sent for the jury  "tit once, and stating to the jurors that  he had plainly intimated how the case  ought to be decided, said he understood  that one juror was standing out against  the other eleven. He proceeded to rebuke the juror sharply.  * The obstinate juror, as it happened,  wias a nervous little man, and as soon  as the judge was done, he arose and  said:  "Your honor, may I say a word?"  "Yes, sir," said the indignant judge;  "what have you to say?"    *  "Well, what I wanted to say is, I am  the only fellow that's on your side."  ���������a  John Graham is the foremost man in  American. athletics. **  It was he who managed the successful team from this country that attracted world-wide attention in the recent  Olympic games at Athens. "  ��������� Formerly. trainer for Columbia college, 'then for Princeton and finally for  Harvard university, Mr. Graham had  much to do with .raising the standard  of collegiate sports. A small army of  I gentlemen have been guided hy him  since he left Harvard and took his present position, superintendent of the  famous gymnasium of the Boston athletic association.  Three of his proteges, White, Brewer  and McCarthy, have just won the New  England championship at the mile,  quater-mile and five-mile run. He has  trained Weeks of Brown university,  one of the best college sprinters in the  country.  Many another student of what makes  men and women strong has used and  has recommended Paine's celery compound as the best known remedy for  those who are weak and dispirited, the  overworked and enfeebled persons who  are most concerned in the general  awakening of interest in outdoor exercise and indoor attention to the proper  rules of health.  ��������� It was the ablest professor of medicine and surgery in any college, that  giant among men, Prof. Edward E.  Phelps,   M. D , LL. D., of  Dartmouth  college, who after years of patient investigation and study, assisted by all  that was best in the' progress of medical science at home and abroad, first  discovered the wonderful formula of  Paine's'.celery compound. ������������������*  * There was no doubt of the interest  that would be awakened at once by the  announcement of any discovery by Prof.  Phelps. ' The formula from the first  was furnished to the best physicians,  and forthwith this  remarkable Paine's  consequence of  some' particular organ.,.  When Mr. Graham, writing January  18, 1897, said:    ,"I have 'used Paine'*,  celery  compound  tb  my benefit, and" I  have no .doubt tliat  any person under-*  going great   physical and mental strain  would   find  it  of  great   service.    Foi  students  especially ' it   ought  to  be ol'  great ..value."     When   so   prominent a  student  of  bodily health, who  has no"  equal,   unless,   perhaps,   one mentions  Dr.   Sargent   of Harvard,  with   whose  celery compound  was personally used  methods  Mr. Graham  became well ac-  and professionally prescribed by them  The result of the closest investigation  might have been expected. It soon required a considerable industry to produce the remedy, and rapidly but  steadily, without ceasing, the demand  for Paine's celery compound has increased, until today there is no other  remedy tbat in comparison begins to  hold half the public attention that it  holds.  In untold number of cases where  every other remedy has been tried and  failed, Paine's celery compound has attained the wished-for results, making  the weak strong, purifying the blood,  rebuilding the wornout nervous tissue,  curing chronic sickness, proving a  never-failing and permanent relief for  rheumatism, neuralgia, kidney diseases  and disorders of the liver, all due to the  impairment of the person's nervous  system, the consequent impoverishment  of the blood and the   breaking down in  quainted at Harvard���������when Mr. Graham says bluntly that after his experience he believes others would ������������������-find  Paine's celery copmound of great service, what man or woman out of perfect  health can afford to neglect his well  considered and expert advice!  There is no doubt that Paine's celery  compound cleans the blood of eczema,  salt rheum and such humors, not only  in tlie spring, that is so favorable a  time, but at any time during tlie year,  so thoroughly that nothing - further is  ever heard of them.  Paine's celery compound has been  tested, tried, scrutinized and heartily  approved by so many impartial physicians and men and women whose word  in any matter would not be questioned  for a moment, that one must be stubborn-minded indeed who prefers to  mope around half sick instead of verifying these positive, straightforward  statements.  +*f*****f****ff**4+m*****f **������������������������������������** **��������� ���������****������������������**** f***m*fm+  ���������  REASONS  FOR  USING  Walter Baker & Go.'sf  Breakfast Cocoa.
