The   Cumberland   Brass   Band,  last Satiuday evening, gave an open  air  concert  at Nob  Hill,  and the  members were  right royally entertained by the hospitable citizens of  that nourishing burgh.   The Mayor  was     unfortunately   absent,     and  much criticism was indulged in b}*-  the mass of citizens on 'account of  his failure to put in an appearance.  Indeed, one gentleman ,was  heard  to remark with  much force that a  ducking in the lake  would  be administered upon   his return  to the  Hill.     However,   when it becomes  generally known lhat he, with   his  trusty aid-de-camp,   was forced'to*  proceed down river in search of the  MayoriaI pleasure boat, which'had  eithei broken from her moorings at  the head  of   the river   and drifted  down    or  else  had been surreptitiously   borrowed  ..by. some   low-  minded fish-poacher, we trust that  his action will be over-looked, and  his absence excused for this  time.  It must not occur again.  After the concert, which was held  under the shade of the trees in the  court-yard of the city clerk's residence, the members of the band  partook of an excellent supper,  after which the time passvd pleasantly with songs and music until  the departure of the 10.30 express  for Cumberland when a reluctant  farewell was made, with cheers  fiom both sides, and a warm invitation to call again.  A . public'''meeting will be held  Friday,. Augugt 1st., at S o'clock  p.m., in the City Hail, for the purpose of winding up the 'business in  connection with'tbe celehration'of  June' 26.rB W.

''    "Is it part of,a rich man's duty or  ���������business-to Uecp a private detective?"  I -was still hiughing, but I found no response on the portentously,solemn face/  of my visitor.  "That's, as may be, Captain Wood.  Some do and some don't- Those who  didn't have come to wish they had.; so  might you."  ' "And'what would .happen if I were  so foo.lish as to refuse the obliging offer of, 'your people?' " I asked smiling-  ' , "I beg of you to be serious, Mr. Wood.  .Take' us or leave us, but employ some  ���������one. Do not, for heaven's sake, at-  'tempt to run alone."  He spoke with such evident earnestness and ,good faith that I began to  feel a little uncomfortable.  "Do you imply that I  need  protection,  that I ,am   in   any  danger���������any  personal danger���������that unless I am taken care of, I shall fall a victim'to some  ���������what shall I say���������some plot?"  "All that and "more.   I cannot at this  < stage be more explicit In my warnings.  It would bo giving away our business.  But there' are ample grounds for what  ���������    1' say. *, I indicated  something of the  sort of thing when I spoke to you this  '������������������morning:   There are those who grudge  ' you your newly acquired fortune, who  1 deny your right to it or even the testator's right to it.   They are ready to employ any means���������secret, insidious, even  violent means���������to wrest it  from  you.  iJet me tell you, sir,-that even now, at  this moment, you may be, I believe you  ���������are, in imminent peril���������you and your  . life."   '     '  "But this is a matter for the police!"  I cried hotly, springing to my feet.  "Your police cannot help you In this.  . It is too private and particular, and  they are of little good till after the  event.    What you want is prevention,  anticipation.     You   must   meet   guile  with * guile, plot with  counterplot,  always supposing.-there is time."   "<   =  ,',  "Where is the hurry?"  -"We have reason to know that every-  .   thing was planned some time since."  "Why,  the  news  is  not  a day  old  yet!"'-    .  "If has long been expected that the  McFaught millions would- come to  England, but the name of the real heir  was only disclosed a week ago. Everything was ready, and the campaign  was to commence directly It was  known who should be attacked."  I looked at this heavy featured, slow  speaking Yankee, wondering whether  he was in earnest or only thought me  a fool. I knew, of course, that I had  aow become fair game for the blackmailers, and-I was inclined to imagine  that Mr. Snuyzer's solicitude was only  a transparent attempt to extort money.  "And'what would It cost me.to secure the good offices of Messrs. Saraband & Sons?" I asked, seeking en-  v-lightehment as to his probable _ demands.  "Our charges, sir. are no more than  out of pocket expenses and a small re-  -taining fee, say five and twenty dollars  -a week.    After that a pro  rata premium, according to the risks."  "Risks?   I do nof quite understand."  "The perils, sir. from which you are  ��������� saved, whetl er by premonition, guardianship or. a   ual rescue.    We have a  ���������graduated scale.    I shall be happy to  leave  the  'skedool'   with   you.     Here  ���������J3iit this is a matter for the police!' I  '   cried hotly.  are some of the items: Divorce proceeding's, either side; sequestration,  -false charges, wounding, loss of limb,  '"death"��������� ..*  "Murder, in short?" I still spoke in  a flippant/tone. "What is the rate of  insurance against that?"  His face did not relax, and he answered gravely:  ���������"'From ������10,000 up to any sum, according to the nearness of the risk."  "Well, I will think over your obliging offer. i Possibly, if I find I cannot  'take,care of myself, I may come to  .you. For tbe present I shall trust to  Scotland Yard aud my own endeavors."  "You are wrong, sir, entirely wrong,  '-believe that," said my visitor darkly  ���������as he rose to take his leave.   "You are  In considerable danger, sir, and it will  Increase hourly. And you have given  points against you.' The chief aim of  these big 'bunko steerers' is, of course,  to pouch your dollars, but it is known  that you are concerned with the differences between our two great countries. It is supposed that 3rou' hold important military information, state secrets that might be got out of you,  squeezed out of you, if they put you in  a tight place. You may decline our offer. That is your own affair. But, sir,  let me conjure-you to carry a six shooter on, all occasions. Go nowhere-  well, to no strange or unusual places-  alone." '  "I trust it is not quite so bad* as all  that, Mr. Snuyzer:' Still, 'I am grateful, aud I shall certainly remember you"  If.  if"��������� , ��������� ,     '  "You survive? Yes, sir, but do hot  leave it too late. You --have been  marked .down, captain, and' they will  strike at'you, somehow, soon; today,  tomorrow, at any ' time. Thej- con-.  ��������� tend' that the McFaught millions were  acquired by spoliation and sharp'practice." ' - , . > ��������� t ,' , '  "Is there any truth in that?" I broke  in hurriedly.  ' "Bully McFaught was a smart man,  and struck some close things, but he,  was no more entitled to state prison  than those he fought with on ,Wall  street. Any stick is good enough to  beat a dog with, and your enemies  will talk tall about surrendering ill  gotten gains, because it is a good show  card. I do not think you need lie  awake wondering '/whether you should  make restitution to the, widow .and  the ��������� fatherless���������anyway, , not till it's  forced upon you. as it may be." ,'*  "And you can save me from that?"  "Or worse. We /think you w;ill be  well- advised to consider our offer. If  we can be of any service to you, remember our ���������telephone number* is 2S7,-  35G, and I shall reply personally or by  proxy at any time, day or night. You  have also ��������� my address, 39 Norfolk  street, Strand. I reside there, on the  premises. ' I shall be proud to receive  your instructions, and���������if it is hot too  late���������to come to your assistance on the  shortest notice. Good day, captain.  Think well of what I say."   '  How was I to take all this? Seriously? I had'read in every schoolbook of  the snares and pitfalls of great wealth,  but had never dreamed���������who could?���������bf  dangers so, strange and terrible- as  those that how menaced me, if I were  to give������ credence to. this extraordinary  tale. ���������, r  Some one hailed me as I passed down  Piccadilly, and, turning, 1 recognized  a man I knew, Lawford by name, a.  big. burly, fat voiced man. with'jet.  black beard so unmistakably -dyed  that it increased his years and gave  an unwholesome tinge to his pallid  complexion. He had greasy,' fawning  manners���������an assumption of bonhomie  that you instinctively distrust. I never  cared for him much, but he always  pretended to be devilish fond of me.  I had met this Lawford on the other  side of the Atlantic, in the South American city where I had spent some time  in a recent mission. He gave it out  that he was prospecting for gold in  those parts, but many believed that he  was a spy and ��������� secret agent of the  American government.   Then we. came  o  home together in the same steamer,  and I was much thrown with him on  board. He was on his way to England  to make, his, and every one's fortune,  mine included. I confess the fellow  amused me, his schemes were so tremendous; he had such a profound belief in himself aud in the simplicity of  the British public.  "Yes, sir, I shall spoil them; stick  them up and carry off a pile of plunder. You'll do well to cut in with me,  captain. You'd strike It rich; yes, sir.  I can dispose of 75,000 acres of real  estate which is just honeycombed with  gold. The greater part belongs to me,  Rufus Lawford. but I won't part till  your darned capitalists have unbuttoned. But they wilT that when they've  seen my prospectuses and heard my  witching tongue."  Lawford had not found the innocents  of the city, so easy to beguile. v He passed through many phases of good and  evil fortune in the months that followed his arrival. 1 saw him from time to  time, now gorgeous, now looking like  a sweep. Sometimes he was on the  eve of pulling off some gigantic operation; at others lie was in the depths of  despair and borrowed a soverlgn "on  account" of the great fortune he-meant  some day to force,on me. lie evidently  did not prosper in his schemes of promotion. But he still hung upon the  frontiers of finance, in the neutraif debatable ground where every man's hand  is against his fellows and frank brigandage is more or less the rule.  I was surprised to find him in the  west end, and told him so, as he overtook me with the "fifth" Globe in his  hand.  "-~ ' '[CONTINUED.]  -' .

Ill ' health is a sure sign tliat the  blood is either insufficient, watery or  impure, for most of the diseases that  aillict mankind are traceable to this  cause. Every organ of the body requires rich, red blood to enable it to  properly perfprm its life-sustaining  functions," and at the fn*st intimation  that nature gives'���������that all is not well,  the .blood should be "cared for. Purgative medicines will not do this���������it  is a tonic that is' needed, ,an'd Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills have, been  proved, the world " over, to surpass  all other medicines "in "tiheir tonic,  strengthening and health-renewing  qualities^ From one end of- the land  to .the other will be .found' grateful  people who cheerfully acknowledge  that Ot'hoy 'owe their good, health to  this great" medicine. Among these is  Mr. Elzear Robidoux, a prominent  young man living at St. Jerome,  Que. He says : "For some years  was a great sufferer from dyspepsia.  My appetite became irreg-ular and  everything I ate felt like a weight on-  any stomach. I-tried .several remedies and was under the care of doctors,' but to no avail, arid I gi*_ew  worse as time went on. I became  very weakt grew thin, suffered much  from pains in* the stomach ami, was  frequently seized with dizziness. One  day a friend told me of the case of a  young girl who had suffered greatly  'from this trouble, but who. through  the use of Dr. Williams'. Pink Pills  had fully regained her health and  strength." and strongly advised'mo to  try .these pills. I was so eager to  find a cure that I acted on his advice  and procured a supply. From the  very first my condition improved and  after using the pills for a couple of  months I was fully restored ��������� to  health, after having been a constant  sufferer for four years. It is , now-  over a year since I used the pills and  in that time 1 have enjoyed the best  of health. This I owe to that greatest'of all medicines, Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills, and I shall always have  a g-ood word to say on t-Heir behalf.'

I've seen men who seemed to  fancy'that'a Lancashire dialect would  do first rate for a Scotchman and that  any old thing was good enough for a  heathen Chinee.

'  (1 eform in Drinking, Bars���������"Methods by  Which He Hopes to Clianje Urinkin*;  Habits of the English Masses���������Profits  for Civic Works���������Managers of Bars  iVIust Gire Bonds to Conduct Careful  , , Business.  Earl Grey, brother, of Her Excellency the  Countess of Minto, spoke    at  St. James' Schoolhouse, Toronto, on'  a recent Saturday,  and' unfolded the  ...plans and hopes  of tlie public   house  trusts  in England,   and  their' success  as far as they have g-one.  ��������� .Lord  Grey,     who is  a middle-aged  man,   with little  of nature's protector on     his   head,  a strong,  sensible,  "business man's face, and a calnvpoiS  ,'suasive voice, was' introduced by the  ' Bishop   of  Toronto,   and 'told  of the  movement     from   its   origin.       ' Tiie  scheme of the public house trust was  adopted because neither the House of  -Commons nor the Lords would      accept ike Gothenburg .system.        Mr.  'Chamberlain tried it in 1877 and the  ^Bishop of' Chester in 1S94. One year  '   _ KARL GKEY.  later the Bishop  organized  tlie'   People's 'Refreshment Association, iwhich  '  was the ;nuclcxis .of the public house  '.     trust.'   Now   there  were.-.20  of- them,  1 arid, Lord ^Grey1, expressed the    "'hope  .   .to" have. * one  in every county in England. "No1 complaints, had been heard,,  arid'the magistrates spoke     well    of  them.     * _.���������_'''���������  'The two main ideas ,of the      trust  .-..are, His Lordship explained,' the   abolition 'of the element of private gain  and freedom from  the control of the  -    brewers.    These are,  in his' view, the  two chief evils of the traffic. Because  of the first it is to the.interest      of  the publican to make drunkards      of  the  community'    in  which  he  'seeps.  .The second is responsible "for* the scll-  , ing of-bad liquor.    The system which  goes under the name of "tied houses"  is unknown here. Brewers get control  of as many inns  as__ they are      able,  and .then confine" tV--.ese--.inns to selling-  liquors made only at /Cheir breweries.  This restricts the choice of the   .customer     as     to  what  liquor  he  .shall  drink,  and does not tend to    secure  the best in the market.  In the  public house trust"    houses  the first  evil  is cb'mbatted     by     the  ��������� employment of a paid manager,  who  has no interest in increasing the sale  of intoxicants.    On the contrary,    he  has an interest in increasing .the sale  of   non-intoxicants.   He   receives        a  fixed salary,  and besides that a percentage  on the sales  of non-alcotiol-  ics.    In reply to a  question at      the  close of his talk, Earl Grey admitted  that the  greatest  difficulty  was      to  obtain proper  managers. He thought,  however, that thay had provided safely   against  corruption.   Every      man  who    was    appointed manager must  put  up security,  and in case of maladministration this  security  was    retained.    The brewers,,, too.   who  were  those      likely  to  try  bribery,      were  warned that if they were caught   offering a '..manager a commission, .   on  the sale/of their  brands  they-'would  be struck straight off the order list.  They would eventually have a highly-paid class of .civil servants.  *The Earl described the steps taken  to      form a public house trust.        A  private  conference   was   held.      First  a resolution was passed to form the  trust;  then a committee formed      to  secure a board of directors.  To these  directors  would fall  the task of    securing a suitable manager, obtaining  the license, building the. public house  or remodeling the old one, and looking  generally   after   its   management.  Their  object was to   improve      upon  the privately-owned public house, and  therefore,   unless  they bought  out  a  license, they preferred to build    their  own house, especially as the building  'designed      for   the   ordinary      public  house was not best adapted for their  .purpose.    The      capital     was  usually  subscribed  by  those  promoting    it���������  that, was  a comparatively easy matter���������and   5  per   cent,   dividend      was  paid upon it.   This was a first charge  on the net revenue.   The rest,     after  a certain per cent,  was set    aside as  reserve,  went into  the hands of trustees,  who expended it for the benefit  of  the  community���������the   only   restriction being- that none of it was to go  to reduce the rates.  His Lordship  was ��������� asked  to  justify  this exception,  and said that in No-r- I  way and Sweden a natural desire to  lighten the rates had caused a great  deal of excessive drinking on the  part of patriotic citizens.  In financing, ,Earl Grey expressed  the view that debentures would be,a  better form than shares. In time the  reserve fund would equal the capital  invested, -and it was then the object  of the trust to buy out the shareholders, to have the house a, ' clear  asset, and to set aside the whole income for "public improvements. ' In  that case it would be found easier to  pay off debentures than to buy out  ���������stockholders.  '������������������'������������������������<������������������������������������ trustees into whose h^n*-'*- ������������������ hf������  surplus -foes; for administration are'  a picked body of men. They aimed  to have on .it representatives of the  gentlemen, class, the business , men,  the sporting men, and the labor;, unions. Sir Edward Grey, one of the  leaders of English politics, and the  president of a trades union are .among' the trustees of the Northumberland trust.  Among ,tho��������� public works for which  the 'surplus could, be used His Lordship mentioned libraries. >��������� blliia.d  rooms, bowj'ing lawns, hospitals. He  told of several towns where the trust  plan liad been tried, and spoke of  its advantages. . In Newcastle-on-'  Tvne there, was one section, of ,11,-:  000 people .that had but on***, license,  until , last October,' and that was^  right in front of the Armstrong Gun*  AVorks, the men going in and drinking their glass of gin-before starting  work ' in, the morning���������a poisonous  foundation for a day's work, he called, it.

In 1857, at the age of fifteen, Dr.  Bell began his scientific career - by  becoming connected with the Geological Survey under the late  Sir W. E. Logan, and served for  three - years as assistant to the  principal members of the staff. Since  1860 he has served continuously as  head of parties in the same work.  It would take more space than is at  our������disposal -to enumerate the surveys which ' Dr. Bell has to his credit in the department in practical-  lv every part of the great north-  land. , Nor have his services to  science been rendered exclusively as  a surveyor. Dr. Bell was on all the  steamship expeditions .s<*nt out by  the Canadian Government to Hudson Strait and Bay. In addition to  h'is duties as geological and naturalist, he was -medica*! officer on the  Neptune and Alert expeditions, but  on the Diana expedition of 1807 he  was obliged to leave ihe ship in  order to ���������'make his surveys by means  of a yacht and boat, so that it became necessary, to take out another  medical man.

In buying an oilcloth for a floor  endeavor to obtain one that was  manufactured several years before,  as the longer it has been made previous to use. the better it will wear,  from the paint becoming hard and  durable. An oilcloth that has been  made within the year is scarcely  worth buying, as the paint will bo  defaced , in a very little time, it  requiring a long while to season.  An oilcloth should never be scrubbed  with a brush, but after being first  swept it should be cleaned by washing with a large soft cloth and hike-*  warm or cold water. On no account  use soap or take water that is hot,  as either of them will certainly  bring off  the  paint.

If you take off the first letter,, 'it does not change 'abit.' If  you take off another, you still have  a 'bit' left. If you take off still  another, the whole of 'it' remains.  If you take off another, it is not  wholly used up. All of which goes  to show that if you want to get rid  of a habit you must throw it off altogether."___ ___  Salt   liTonntains.

HE GETS A  RELIC IN THE SHAPE OF  A  RARE COLONIAL BUREAU.  w  Makes a Purchase of It to Please  His Wife, but His Wrath. Rises  Hig-lx Wlien She Is Skeptical and  Refuses to Entlinse Over It.  [Copyright, 1902, by C. B. Lewis.]  PHEN Mr. Bowser was half  ���������jsjm' home the other even-'  isjgt he suddenly remembered'that he ought to buy a  box of shoeblacking, and he left the car  and stepped into a grocery. While he  ,*was .being waited "upon his eye caught  sight .of a bureau in the 'back end of  the store, with drawers filled with potatoes, and after looking the affair over  he asked with pretended carelessness:  "How does it happen that you have  such a piece of furniture in here?"  "I took it on a debt .of 50 cents," replied the grocer:  ���������   "And I suppose you'll sell it for a  dollar?" t ' '     ���������  "If you want that bureau for1 a, dollar, it's yours, and I will also, deliver  it.",     , ' '-���������  There was a struggle with conscience  on the part of Mr. Bowser for a minute. No sooner had he set eyes on  that .bureau than ho identified it as  'belonging to the colonial period and  worth Its weight in silver as an antique.    The grocer simply regarded it  as so much old rubbish and would**'be  satisfied with a'profit of 100 per cent.  Should he take advantage of the igno-  , ranco of the dealer in sugar and cod-  ��������� fish, or should he give him honest information and plank down .$20 in place  of $1?- Conscience took a oback' seat,  nnd the-purchase was concluded at the  . dealer's: own' figure. Any grocer'who  .will debase an old heirloom by filling it  , full of potatoes deserves to be swindled  in its sale. The minute that Mr. Bowser reached home Mrs. Bowser felt sure  ,.that' something had happened, and,  though ' she asked no questions!' his  nervous demeanor at the.dinner table  , strengthened her belief. After the meal  was finished he had an excuse to go to  ��������� the'front door every five minutes, and-  (When a-, wagon at last drove' up he  .wentout to, assist the boy 'in Jif ting the  "I don't think it ever did," replied  Mrs. Bowser as she backed into the  sitting room. "I wish I could have  seen the bureau before you bought it."  "For what reason?"  ��������� "Because it isn't a colonial. It's  only soft wood veneered over, while all  the colonial pieces are solid. The bureau we saw at Mount Vernon was  mahogany. It's simply an old-rickety  piece of furniture you've brought borne.-  Examine it for yourself."  "And this is what I get for picking  up an almost priceless antiquity!" he  gasped. '  "It's not an antiquity, Mr. Bowser.  It's simply a-common old bureau and  was probably sold for about $5 in the  first place. Why do you buy things in  this haphazard,way?"  "Haphazard! Do you mean to-tell  me Idon_t know an old antique when  I see,one? When I run across "an old  colonial, have I-got to trot home and  ask you to go and look it over for fear'  I'll be deceived? -When or where did  you post yourself about antiques?"  ''When or where did you?" she quietly asked.  "You hear ms now���������you .hear me!"  he' shouted when he found .himself  boxed up.' "By the jumping .Tim Crow,  if the whole household furniture of  Benjamin Franklin should be offered  me for 10 cents I wouldn't buy it! For  ten long years I've been looking out  for a Martha Washington bureau to  please you, and now that by the rarest  chance on earth, I finally pick one up  you dub it old rubbish and insist that  I'm a fool.".  "It was kind of you, but j-ou see"���������:  "I see nothing," he yelled as he cut  loose���������"that is, I do! I see that you've  got about as much sentiment about you  as an old sitting hen and that I ought  to have brought -you up a basket of  clams instead. We won't discuss the  matter further. I'll sell the bureau tomorrow for $500. Perhaps you had  rather be alone with yourself?"  , Mrs. Bowser arose with a sigh and  went up stairs, and when bedtime  came she'went to bed. It, had come  midnight and she. was asleep when  she was aroused by a crashing and  smashing below. ' For two of- three  minutes it seemed as if the whole interior of the. house was being torn out.  "Then -the sounds ceased, a,.pungent  dust came floating up, and she heard  Mr. Bowser swearing to himself. Then  she knew tliat the old colonial -relic  was no more* on earth.       .&!. Quad.

It  was  shoved into the.parlor, and he walked  around, chuckling over it for a quarter  of an hour before he was ready to say:  "Mrs. Bowser, do you remember our  visit to Mount Vernon and the tonlb of  Washington several years ago?"  "Perfectly," she replied.  "In going over the house we entered  the room that used to be Mrs. Washington's bedroom, I believe?"  ���������   "I'm sure we. did."  "And you coveted an article of furniture'in that room and kept talking  about-it for weeks after."  "Yes, the bureau," she replied. "1  did so want a bureau like that, but you  6aid one couldn't be had for love or  money.    You  haven't���������haven't"���������  ''When I call, you may come in," he  said as he took up a match and passed  into the parlor to light the gas. "Now,  come on."  He extended his hand to Mrs. Bowser and led her up to the antiquity and  stood by with a smile on his face as  she surveyed it. As she said nothing  for a minute or two, he observed:  "I can't truthfully say. that this is  the identical bureau used by Martha  Washington, but you can see for yourself that it was made by the same man  and is as like it as two peas: You are  now in possession of the coveted article at last, and I suppose you won't  care for diamonds or pearls?"  "Did you buy this for a colonial?"  asked Mrs.. Bowser as she backed off  and sat down on a chair.  "Well, I didn't buy it for a 1001 bureau. Yes, I bought it for what it is���������  a colonial. It's a Martha Washington  bureau right down to the ground. I  haven't looked around for a date on it,  but I presume you'll find 177G or some  other old figures on it somewhere.  Doesn't it give you a little feelinsr of  awe to stand In the presence of this  old relic?"  Mrs, Bowser's face looked serious-  enough, but she didn't admit the awe,  and he presently asked:  "What's the matter with you? I  thought you'd jump over chairs when  you saw this relic. Think of a piece of  furniture a hundred years old, maybe  a hundred and fifty! Where now is the  colonial dame whose hands once folded away her clothes in those drawers?  Do you suppose it ever crossed her  mind that your hands would some day  toueh these time begrimed h-andles?"  The' Only- Way.

The girl wage earner leads, as a rule,  a comfortless life, whether she be an  Inmate of her home or a boarding  house in a strange place. After her toilsome' day she needs -the change that  can best be supplied by the* well appointed club.  This will doubtless appear a frivolous view' to take of the proper use to  which the.girl wage earner should put  her leisure hours, for it is the custom  of those" who interest themselves in  the welfare of the girl to persuade her  to study after working hours. It is not  disputed that the knowledge may be  of advantage to her, but the criticism  here made is that the almost invariable  programme offered to the girl is restricted to opportunity for, improving  her mind' and rendering skillful her  fingers, these chances not being. aB is  the case with boys' organizations, one  of several features.  It is surprising that the charitably  disposed have not arrived at an understanding that recreation is a legitimate  need of the girl nature. When one considers the prodigious amount ot money  and time spent in providing the daughters of the rich with pleasure, it does  seem as though women of position  would long before this have made adequate provision for this requirement  of girl nature among the less fortunately placed. Is it not about time to  rest the boy club question and take up  that of the girl on a scale as large and  as ambitious as ever was.planned: for  the boy?���������Vogue. *:';������������������ :     ,��������� "-"  The   Colors   of  Amber,  Amber has a wonderful variety of  colors.

A mother overheard her nursegirl  talking to the, little child she was putting to sleep, and among other legends  of the nursery in which she indulged  was this, "If you don't go right to  sleep this .very minute, a great, big,  awful, black bear, with eyes like coals  of fire and sharp, cruel teeth, will come  out from under the bed and e-a-t y-o-u  a-1-1 u-p!" This poor little thing nestled  down under the clothes to dream of  horrid bears eating her up..  That night when the stolid nurse had  composed herself in her own comfortable bed and had put the lamp out there  came a sudden tap at the door, and the  voice of the mistress called loudly  through the panels: "Maggie, Maggie!  Get up as quick as you can. There's a  burglar under your bed!" At the word  "burglar" the girl sprang screaming  from her bed. tore open the door and  fell into hysterics in the hall. The les-  Bon was more instructive than the mistress designed, hut when the girl's  '**&-~~~-^.T������&a*������<*'''**--- -���������  I)i:!iIph'Nr**i  Not  lie Rocked to Sleep.  1 )<ictois   are   not   as   n   general  rule  -������������������������������������:i rlv    influenced    by    purely    senti-  ������������������������������������.������u*r:irfons.  r������r>d  they  have  Issued  the   mandate,   "Babies   should  not be rocked/to sleep." This would at  first seem cruel and arbitrary, but it is  ��������� not' as' unreasonable as would appear.  It is vastly better for the baby to be  undressed and laid down in the crib,  with  a  cool,   fresh  pillow   under   the  little head, to drop into a quiet sleep  than to be held in mother's warm arms  close  against  her breast'and  rocked  for half an hour or more.   Withumost  babies a  very   little  training  will   be  sufficient to induce them to1 sleep when  laid down if they-have never become  accustomed to the rocking.   If you are  not Spartan enough to leave the .baby  while    he    is    vigorously   -protesting  against this procedure,'sit by the crib  and  gently pat  him. to  sleep.   After  awhile^even this Avill not be necessary.  It is not only better for the child, but  also  for  the  mother,' as  the   rocking  habit, if persisted in, soon becomes a  tax rather than a pleasure.���������Arthur W.  Yale,   M.

Pins and sockets for putting down  the ordinary floor carpet are'not' new  at all, but they are so useful tl>-������.t they  are worth mentioning. The great utility'of these is that the carpet can be  taken up with but little trouble for a"  weekly shaking instead of sweeping if  one desires. The sockets are driven in-  - to -the floor at regular intervals around  tho room. The carpet is put down, and  for each socket there is a pin or brass  headed nail which goes into it,'holding  the carpet as firmly in place as the ordinary tack. But with the pin and  socket there is no trouble in lifting it  again. The pins-are .replaced in the  sockets to keep them from filling with  dust, and when the carpet is cleaned it  can be put down again .with ease. The  pins are sufficiently ' long, two and  three-quarter inches, to hold tlie carpet  firmly. In some houses hall carpets are,  put down without- lining and taken up  frequently to be shaken.  -*Ld������dy Henry   Somerset   Sides With  Xabor  Affaiiist Yaclitsraiui.

The prettiest drapery for the back of  an upright piano is some, rich stuff,,  brecade or church embroidery or a  piece pt not tbo gaudy eastern stuff.  Throw it over the top of the piano and  let it fall straight over the back without rod or rings. If something thinner  is used, it should be hung, very slightly,  fulled, on' a fine wire or rod that is  made invisible. In the case of a simple  material it is better to choose one not  too flowery, letting Its purpose, that of  concealing the unfinished back, be freely seen. A low backed sofa or actable  may stand in front of the piano, preferably the latter, as a sofa frame  against the back is apt to pull and disarrange the drapery, while the use of  the piario itself as a seat back may interfere with the sound if not actually  injure' the instrument. A square piano  is better undraped unless a particularly  choice piece of rare stuff is owned.  ' Lamps,  Apropos of lamps in general. It is  well to exercise some care in making  a selection from the general supply.  If intended merely for ornament, the  round globes now so popular.'.are satisfactory, but for a library or reading  room the lamp should have a spreading  globe. Green is recognized as the best  color for the eyes, while yellow or white  shades on reading lamps are most trying, and blue globes reflect a' sickly  light- that is exceedingly unpleasant.  Red...shades are effectiye^if used with  m_ode.ration and in the'-Vight place, but  ajj'pVeponderance of this color is apt to  pro*vp unsatisfactory.' To get the best  results from lamps they -must receive  daily care and be properly filled and  trimmed. -  I/ye   "Water.  Strong lye water will cleanse the lids  of metal, self sealing cans quicker than  anything else. Every housekeeper  knows the crust that forms on the inside and that looks bad, though it does  not injure the usefulness of the can.  Put a tablespoonful of lye in half a  gallon of rainwater. Let it get hot  and pour over the' lids. Let them  stand in it twenty, minutes, but not on  the stove, as heat loosens the porcelain  lining. Remove to'clear water and  wash well.  Sleeping: Rooms.  "Every sleeping room," says a lecturer on house building, "should have  a fireplace or a ventilating^ue of fifty  square inches of area. The smaller the  room'the more Important this becomes.  The rieglect of this precaution, which  is common in apartment houses, is a  serious matter and will not be without  an injurious effect upon the health of  the community." It is on these practical points that the woman electing to  build a house this spring should inform  herself.  ���������   I.ADY   3IKVKY   SOMKKSTST. j  and the beautiful  Countess 'of   Warwick ,in the  contest  that  is    coming  over  the  wages that he 'pays .      his  army 'of, cheap' labor.

Ottawa, 'Ont., May 26.���������(Special)-  To say that the miraculous case of  G-eorge H. Kent, of 309 Gilmore St.,  had shaken medical circles to their  very foundation, is putting it mildly  The facts of the case have been- so  thoroughly and satisfactorily established* by Mr."'Kent's sworn statements as to leave no room for misunderstanding or mistake in the matter.  Mr.'Kent had .Briglvtjs Disease ; he  had been on bed for months, gradually getting1 worse; physicians could  do nothing for him. ,    c  His   case  had  reached' that    stage  when his .body was terribly bloated.  ,   He was so low that he liad    con-c  vulsions,-   which  were  rapidly   growing more frequent.  In the interval between -these convulsions he was almost entirely unconscious.    ' ' ",-'', '."  In this extremity the physicians* at  last told his wife that he could not  live until morning. '       i  While watching by his bedside Mrs.  Kent chanced to pick up a paper  containing an advertisement of a  cure of Bright's Disease by JOodd's  Kidney Pills. It was then midnight,  and all drug stores were,closed, but  the devoted wife determined, that  even at this extremely liite hour she  would make one more effort to save  her' husband's  life.  Accordingly she despatched a messenger, woke up the nearest druggist, procured a box of Dodd's Kidney Pills, which she commenced to  administer at once.  Mr. Kent did not die that night,  for from the first dose of Dodd's  Kidney Pills - he commenced to improve. All other treatments and  medicines were discarded, and the  use of this remedy carefully continued.  Gradually yet surely this wbndei*-  ful remedy arrested the progress of  the dread Bright's Disease.  It took Dodd's Kidney Pills about  six or seven weeks to restore* Mr.  Kent to good health.

The  following is a  ^condensadun:���������'The  ore,   having  been   reduced   to "a, freely'flowing  pnlp, p-n-ses  directly from the mill  into-the open end of a  hoiiziomal  rotating   drum,   iiwide of   which is  fix-fcd  a helix with-cross blades or  buckets, which lift up the pulp to a  'certain height and drop it again, at  the -^ame iimi,propelling it forward  , to the opposite  end-of the  drum,  'thus keeping; the- pulp in constant  *   agitation for'the few seconds which  are occupied in its progress through  the drum.      With   the pulp is also  admitted   a   small, quantity   of   a  thick sticky oil (the residue left in'  the  stills in   the refining.of petroleum).    This oil is, of course, suL-  ���������������������������  jected to-the'same agitation'as '.he  . pulp, and io  consequently tumbled'  & about witli it, aud exercises there-  - markable   properly  of   sucking   lo  '"  and  buoying  up   the  particles  of  mineral that are floating'anout or  - suspended in tho'pulp, but' it d.ies  .not stick to or have any effect  whatever upon the pa rides of rock  which are present in much greater  number. The oil and pulp automatically discharge   from   the   op-  - posite end of the drum into a pointed box-or spitzkasten,"in which the  tailings or r< ck at once settle down  and'flow off with the water at the  bottom, whilst the oil,'by reason of  its buoyancy, floats to the '.op and  carries up with it practically all the I  ���������values'which the ore contained.  ���������From the top of the pointed box*  the oil with- its load of mineral  fl ,ws off continuously to a specially  constructed centrifugal machine,  where.the oil is extrac.ecl from tne  mineral (which is left in the machine)', the oil being at once ready  for re-use.  The process saves the finest slime  or float-mineral, fiee gold, sulphides, etc, It can bo used after'any  system of wet crustiing without  classi[ication on material'finer than  20 mesh (4.00 holes to the sq. inch)  The pulp flows' auto-nationily.ar.d  '    contiguously   through   '-ho   mixtrs  withdut attention, and Lh'e oil passes  continuously from the surface of the  ' 'spitzkastens below mixe.s iutu the  centrifugal   machines,   aud   thence  'freed from 'concentraU-s���������-is pumped  : back into circulation again through  tanks feeding the mixers. The  power required is very small. The  cost, of installation and operation  is very-low."  Th������ quantity'of waur  ��������� necessary per ton of ore, small.-  Ciean concentrates are produced  almost free from rocky particle-?.  The.'plant is const...ucied in.'very  convenient units of about.25 tons  daily capacity, but depending on  character oi ore, and can easily Le  added to wiie.i insiulied. The concentration depends on the surface  condition of the materia.!, and generally it may ho said that me.aide  cinnabar,'   graphite,    molybdenite,  atacamite and some other minerals,  which in"adyance( might not seem  tv> possess .promising  surfaces,   are  most successfully taken   up   by tho  oil,    TUluricle.-r? which are diiliculiT  to concentrate by water,  and from  'their   gold  and silver .value-.,   need  'close saving, are easily concentrated by this process.    Some oxidized  gold ores iu  which the metal is so  fine as to defy amalgamation have  oiven good results.   Average banket  oold* ore  from   the   Randit  mines  without auy previous amalgamation'  has yielded a  hivih extraction and  rich concentrate. '   These last three  cla-jKCB promise a field for  the   pro-  ccs-5 in direct competition oriu'eon-  junc.ion with cyanidmg.    As it is  desirable to extend  the knowledge  of .its  application, .correr-pondenue  is invited, and samples will be received for laboratory testing by the  process, in cases where diiTicuUy or  loss occurs  in exiting  methods of  'concentration or cyaniding  The Tale of a Keg.
