Mr.  Smith kept.to the ^flying Vehicle a trifle  longer and then .attempted to jump,',  but in an opposite direction from the  way the horse was going. As a result he  landed on his head fracturing the base of"  ' he skull. In a few minutes help arrived  ��������� nd Mr. Smith was taken to the hospital  where he expired in the course of an  hour or two.  The Coroner empanelled a jury at 11  a.m. yesterday, who returned a verdict in  accordance with the facts.  Services were held in the Methodist  Church at 1:30 yesterday. It was attended by the local lodge of the Oi aogemen s  Association (he bcinj a member) under  whose charge the funeral was conducted.  He was interred at the Presbyterian  Cemetery, Sandwich.

The Week's Commercial   Summary.  R. G. Dun & Co's weekly review of  trade"in tho United States says: Colder  and more stormy weather, so long needed  to accelerate distribution of winter goods,  has materially helped in somo quarters,  'and the resulting improvement in retail  trade is mentioned in nearly every northern despatch this week, so that orders  to fill stocks have ' been encouraging,  and in some branches the multitude of  demands for immediate delivery show  that the distribution to consumers has  already gone much beyond the expectation of dealers. But this is not yet tho  general rule, and with many complaints  of delayed trade in other quarters, there  ��������� Btill remains the extensive shrinkage  caused by fever and quarantine at the  South.  Englishmen are   now   admitting   that  they entertain   gave fears   on account of  tho low range of manufacturing costs attained'in the United States.    The engineering strike   has   directed    attention to  the fact that English employers havo not  the same control   over   their   workshops  and workers that prevails in   the United  r   States, and   there   is   a   general fear of  competition from this oountry.    But this  fear is not alone on account of the differ-,  ���������nee in the  two   countries   in   relations  between employers and workmen, as the  following from J. S. Jeans, former secretary of   the Iron and   Steel   Institute of  Great Britain   will show: '.' The   United  States have now  attained to   such a low  range   of   manufacturing   costs   as   no  European country cans   excel, and,probably none can rival."  Tho business situation at Toronto is  slightly better, if anything. Dealers in  Wholesale departments report liberal  orders in nearly ail lines, and speak en-  oonragingly of the future. Travelers for  fancy goods are doing an unusually large  trade, and shipping departments are  working, hard to* keep up with orders. In  heavy dry goods- there is an increasing  movement, while the demand is fairly  aotive for men's furnishings, hosiery,  and the like. Business in leather is good,  and orders increasing for boots and shoes,  rubbers, etc Groceries, hardware and  metals are also selling well. Prices as a  rule are firm with'the tendency upwards.  ���������Failures are again unimportant, and ,;in  striking contrast with a year ago. Payments are good. There is a large amount  of grain going forward for shipment to  the old country, including oats, the demand for which soems keen, with an ad-  vanoe in prices.  ' At Montreal the distribution \_f general merchandise countrywards may still  be called active for the season. The carry-,  irig capacity of the river steamers has  been pretty well taxed on recent trips,  and some of these boats, it is reported  have not been able to take all the freight  offering. The amount of goods moving  by rail- is also larger than usual at the  season, and though winter rail rates went  Into force on Monday last, the companies  .have made a concession in the matter of  dried fruits, etc., owing to the late arrival of large shipments now unloading  in port, and which they have agreed to  distribute at summer rates. Boot and  shoe manufacturers report large orders  for spring wear, the. most liberal for  ���������some years, and somo of the houses aro  reported to be indifferent about the  booking of repeat orders for fall goods,  which have also beeu coming in more  freely owing to the .recent change of  weather. Hides have been advanced this  week, and, with the prospect of a better  demand for leather, and comparatively  light stocks, a stiffening of values in  black leather is not improbable. General  collections continue to be favorably  spoken of, and in the money market  there is nothing new, the general quotation for call funds being 4 per cent.  Fortiftcations.  Professor John  Atkinson  Performs  Soma  Wonderful Cures.  Professor John Atkinson, the great  English bone setter, whose wonderful  cures have made him known all over the  continent, is now in this country. He  came over to straighten the limbs of  some of our wealthy people, and, he will  employ his spare time, just as he does at  home, in limbering up stiff joints and  making supple the knotted tendons of the  very poor. His rich patients will pay  him big fees, but his work among the  poor he does without price.  Some of Professor Atkinson's cures  appear to be little short of miracles. The  only instruments he uses are his two  muscular hands. His method of operation with a stiff knee, tor instance, is to  begin by working the joint carefully in  his hands, as if he were    giving   a com*  thougkt and changeful emotion. His face  is wonderfully expressive and he uses  every portion of his body -in a most-  skillful way. In. the most hackneyed  parts he has an original ' view of "the  characters he portrays.

A LIFE DESTROYER.  Hi t.i<f  PROFESSOR  ATKINSON.  1 <**  mon massage treatment. When he' hat  accurately located the position of the  muscles, tendons and bones, he forces  them into their natural position, sometimes using the lower leg like a pump  handle. Then he tells the patient to get  up and walk, and, to the complete surprise of the former cripple, he is able to  do it. Men come to him hobbling along  with canes and crutches and go away  walking jauntily.  Professor , Atkinson disclaims "everything except natural talent. He is a  born bone setter. As a boy he witnessed  au operation by a great London surgeon  and determined to study the science. So  he became a skilled anatomist and a  graduate of the Koyal Veterinary Col-,  lege. Hisl* lovo for animals led him to  open the Animals' Institute in London,  but he soon turned his attention from  the work of setting the bones of animals  to doing similar work for men. Although  he inherited a ��������� considerable estate from  his father, he has never seen fit to give  up his profession. Ho is, now 43 years  old. He is nearly 6 feet tall and weighs  over 225 pounds. He looks just what he  is���������a big, strong, good natured' Englishman.  ( In London he has to offices where he  performs his cures. One is in Hamilton  House, Park lane, where his rich and  titled patients consult him, and the other  is in one of the poorer quarters of the  city.  SIR  HENRY IRVING.  He  The Phoenicians were the first to erect  fortified cities on the Mediterranean Sea.  The Greek Emperors erected strong  walls from the Greek Archipelago to the  Danube to protect the peninsula against  the barbarians.  Cortes, at Tabasco, found stockades so  strongly built that he was forced to employ artillery against them in order to  effeot a breach.  The five principal fortresses in Bulgaria are at Rustchuk, Silistria and  Wldden, on the Danube; Varna, on the  Black Sea, and Shumla, in the interior.  Offa's Dike was a defensive wall built  by the Romans against tho Welsh. It  was an earthen fortification, 113 miles  long, and entirely cut off Wales from  England.  In the second century a formidable  line of fortifications was constructed by  the Roman emperors from the Upper Danube to the Upper Rhine to keep out the  Germans:  . The city and the tower which the sons  of Noah proposed to build were the earliest recorded instances of foi'tiftcation.  The tower, in this case, was undoubtedly a citadel.  Long-range cannon have effected a  considerable modification in defensive  works, just as long-range rifles and  smokeless powder will work a revolution  in military tactics.  Trajan and susequenfc Emperors built  a line of walls from the Black Sea to  the Caspian to protect Asia Minor, and  another line from the intrenchment to  the River Euphrates.   The black soldiers of the first battalion, West India regiment, at Kingston,  Jamaica, begun a lively riot, but Major  Buck, who was called to the scene,  bravely confronted the men, reduced the  majority to order and used them to overpower the rest.  Has  Done  Much   Tor  the ElcTatlon of  the Ei-i.l_.-h Stage.  Sir Henry Irving is not only the greatest living English actor, but he is also  the man who has done the most* for the  elevation of the English stage ��������� during  this century. Above all other qualities,  he is a student of the theatrical art, and  the success which he has attained must  be laid as much to his lifelong studies  and thorough concentration as to his  natural genius.  He was born near Glastonbury in 1838.  Deserting1 business at an early age, he  committed himself to the vicissitudes of  an actor's career���������to tell the truth with  no great promise at the start. Before he  was 21, however he was able to get good  engagements, and he appeared with the  best companies both in. London and in  the provinces. By 1866 he had earned a  high position as an actor,   appearing   in  SIR  HENRY IRVING.  leading roles at the St James Theater  in London. His great ' successes have  bee-n made in Shakespearean plays, and  in the interpretation of characters in  some of the best plays written during  this century. His productions of Shakespearean plays have been, many of them,  notable events, on account of tho richness of the .setting and the originality of  the treatment. There is no doubt but  tbat Shakespeare is now given vastly  more attention both on the stage and in  general reading circles than he would  have been but for Irving's work in that  direction.  Irving   is    a   sympathetic   man     and  possessed   of   an    astonishing celerity of  rf_i**.iitioii*������  to   Prevent Gem Steal-  tog���������Sto.itl.ty of   the  Workers.  In this parr, of the world it is hardly  pale to have a diamond unless you ean  show that you brought, it with you into  the oountry or 'liave purchased it of a  licensed drul.r Time was when receivers  of the lowest, order came here from all  I'-iris, and bought the stone from the  workers 1.

" The ' greatest outlet  for   stolen   diamonds, "   says  Mr  Gardner Williams satirically,   "is   through   the   Transvaal   to  .Natal, wher-e they are shipped by "respectable rnerchants,' who  turn   a deaf ear to  any information   from the diamond fields  to the effect that they are aiding  the  sale  of  stolen   property '     When   the   natives  leave, they  are rigorously  examined, and  yet   now   and    then' Johnnie    manages  somehow to take away a few carats    One  of   his   little dodges is to  hide  the  stone  near a  post.

Have You Ever Suffered From  Rheumatism ?  Rheumatism is nothing, more or less'  than an inflammation of the fibrous'  tissues which are found around and near  the joints of the body. When this tissue  becomes suddenly inflamed with "the  joints red, swollen and tender, accompanied by a high fever, it is called  acute or inflammatory rheumatism:  But when the lameness creeps up  gradually, as the result of a slight inflammation of this tissue, the heat slowly drying up the natural oil which lubricates the joints, you have chronic rheumatism.  Exposure,to cold or wet is the immediate cause of distress in either case,  thougn of course debility and impurity  of the blood will augment tho sufferings  and render you more liable to an attaok.

Tesla Expects to Kid tlie Humau Skin of  All Extraneous Matter by the Aid of  Electricity���������He   Envelops   the   Body   In  Luminous Flame. ' __  Nikola Tesla is in the midst of intriT  oate electrical experiments which promise most valuable hygienic results,' so  soon as he declares himself ready to put  his recently acquired L knowledge into  practical operation', for the ridding of the  human skin of all extraneous matter, in-  Q  NIKOLA TESLA.  eluding parasites of every nature, whether  they aro virulent disease germs or not.  Mr. Tesla was fouud in his laboratory  recently, and when spoken to of the interest his hints and suggestions of what  ne was doing had aroused he hesitated  for a moment before answering. Then as  a foundation the electrician., explained  that it is a fundamental electrical law,  well known, that two bodies ohargod  with the. same kind of eleotricity, either  positive or negative, repel eaon other;  that if a body be charged with electrl-  oity from a static machine the electricity  ���������ooumulates on   its, surface.  "Now," continued Mr. Tesla, "if there  are small bodies of tho minutest weight  on that electrically charged "surface, and  if they are conductors capable of taking  ���������leotricity, thoy' will also become charged  with the same kind of electricity that the  surface has received.. What is the result  under the law of repulsion? There is a  forbe at work between them and the surface which strongly tends to part the  two,'and the particles are thrown off,  frequently with great force. In fact, this  force can be increased to pressure of any  desired magnitude. Just the form of apparatus I am using and whioh accomplished this thing I must keep seoret for  a time yet.  "This repulsion under the pressure I  have referred to is increased the more  under the law that governs it, for if a  given electrical pressure is doubled the  repulsion is increased fourfold, and erea  more than this, on aoeount of another  law, because electricity preferably accumulates on points, and an extremely  ���������mall body is praotlcally a point. Ho the  normal accumulation on the surface referred to���������say it is of brass���������is exceeded  by the accumulation on the small bodies  that may be on that surfaoe.  "I have found ways of producing all  degrees of pressure, even to a degree that  approaches more or less to that of lightning, and the repulsion exerted on ti.a'  small particles���������when a body is charged  with Buoh'a tremendous pressure���������is so  great ns to .rtually tear asunder not  only the firmly adhering small objects,  but the very partioles of the metal n������  whioh they rest. Now, for an illustration, if a brass ball is painted with  bronze paint���������whieh is conducting���������the  whole of the paint is almost thrown  away when the pressure is tnxned.  "But, further, you know how .firmly  bronze paint adheres when it has dried.  It requires great force to tear it away,  but under the pressure I refer to not  only is the bronze.torn from the brass  surface, but the hard brass itself is subjected to such a pressure that its particles  are torn asunder, scattered with great  forco and thrown away, not only to distances measured by feet, but measured  by miles. Keep up the aotlon, and finally  th������ entire solid brass ball would be carried away, but ages would be required  to r.ooomplisli this result with the present apparatus, because of the smallness  of the particles. Still, if the pressure was  sufficiently great���������as in the case of a  lightning stroke���������the brass ball could be  destroyed in an infinitesimal period of  time.  "Now we will see what all of this  leads up to. I know that the scientific  fact of the result describod is accomplished, and we will consider its application to the human body in cases of  ���������skin disorders or any disorders that may  arise from tlie skin being attacked by  disease germs or parasites of any sort.  Since small particles on a body can be  thrown from it by the meaDS I have told  you of, it is thinkablo or even very probable that-a'human body may in this way  rid itself of any extraneous partioles that  may be on it. and as the disease germs,  if any, would be among these particles,  the possibilitv and practicability of suoh  treatment naturally suggest   themselves.  "I have tried experiments in line with  this suggestion and have reached most  remarkable and startling results that impress me as being of great value. They  will be continued and thoir actual value  positively ascertained before the method  is unqualifiedly recommended, By means  of my apparatus I have applied an electrical current from a static machine so  as to agitate the air surrounding a human subject in a most extreme and remarkable manner. The startling effeot  was to make the person when- operated  on in a darkened room appear to be  olouded in a blaze of luminous mist.

WHAT  Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills  have done for  others they  will  do for you, if  oiven a fair trial.  _���������������  "fa*^qmmmmmmfawmNmtiti&  About two years ago the Monitor procured an lnterivew with Mr. Reuben  Petch, of Griersville, in order to ascertain from his own lips if the reports  were well founded that he attributed his  most astonishing return to health to the  use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale  People The result of the interview was  published in the Monitor under the date  of Jan. 17th, 1896. Mr. Petch's case was  certainly one of the most extraordinary  in the annals of medicine in Canada���������if  not in the world. He had been ill for  five years and in that time he consulted  no less than six of the best physicians  he could find, but none could give him  the least relief. His limbs and body were  puffed and bloated to such an extent  that he oould not get his clothes on, and  for two years he had not dressed. He  had lost the use of his limbs entirely.  His flesh seemed to be dead, and pins  could be stuck into various ( parts of the  body without being felt or creating the  slightest sensation. He .could not move  about and if he attempted to get up  would fall and would have to be lifted  up. He was unable to open his mouth  sufficiently to take solid food, and had  to be fed with a spoon like a child. The  doctors said his trouble was spinal sclerosis, and that he could not possibly get  better. He was in fact nothing moro or  less than an animated corpse, so helpless  was be. He was a member of the Canadian Mutual Life Association, and was  under their rules entitled to disability  insuranco and made a claim for it.    Two  doctors, on" behalf of the association,  were sent to examine him, and they pronounced him permanently disabled, and  in accordance with their report he ,was  paid $1,650. This was about two years  after his sickness began. For three years  more he lingered in the condition above  noted, utterly helpless, and a burden to  himself and friends. He was then advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  He did not hope that they would help  him, but in his sad condition he was prepared to grasp at anything that afforded  the prospect of even a slight relief. The  first change noted in his condition after  he began the use of the . pills was a disposition to sweat freely. Then life began  to return to his hitherto dead body, and  from that time on his progress towards  recovery   and   activity   was   steady and  certain.  The publication of the interview, containing the facts above noted, created  unusual interest, not only in this section, but throughout Canada. That a  man, whose limbs and body were all  but dead, who had been examined by  medical experts, and pronounced incurable, and on the strength of their report  was paid a large disability claim, should  afterwards be cured by Dr. Williams  Pink Pills, was looked upon as a marvel.  Manv were skeptical; not as to the cure  ���������for the fact that "he was actively going  about proved this���������but they did not  believe it would prove permanent. In  view of the doubts then expressed, the  Monitor determined to watch tho case  closely, and now, nearly two years after  tbe cure was first published,' has again  interviewed Mr. Petch,. with the result  that we are in a position to say most  emphatically that this remarkable cure  has proved permanent. '���������_���������,,  On beni.,' again questioned, Mr. Petch  said- "You see those hands���������the skin is  now natural and elastic. Once they were  hard and without sensation.    You   could  pierce them with a pin. and I-would no*  feel it, and what is true of. my" hands Is  true of the rest of my body. Perhaps you  have observed that I have now even  ceased to use a cane, and can get about  my business perfectly well. You may Bay-  there is absolutely no doubt as to my  cure being permanent Indeed I am in  even better health than when I gave you  the first interview."  "Do you still attribute your cure to  the use of Dr. -Williams* Piuk Pills?"  Msked the Monitor.  'Unquestionably I do," was the reply.  "doctors had failed, as had also the  numerous remedies recommended by my  friends. Nothing I took had the slightest effect upon me until I began th. use  of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. To this  wonderful medicine I owe my release  from a living death. I have since recommended Dr. Williams'. Pink Pills to  manv of my friends, and the verdict is  in their favor. I shall always bless the  day 1 was induced to take them."  Tlie above are the chief statements  made by Mr. Petoh in this latest interview, and the Monitor may remark from  a long acquaintance with him, that we  consider his statements absolutely true  and roliable. He has no interest to serve  other than a desire to recommend the  medicine that has done so inuoh for him,  and we feel sure that if any sufferer will  write Mr, Petch, enclosing a stamp for  reply, he will endorse all the statements  made above. Wo .may further, add that  Mr, Petch's remarkable recovery leaves  no doubt ��������� of the wonderful curative  powors of Dr. Williams' Pink'Pills, and  it seems reasonable, to* infer that they  will do for others what ' they have done  for him���������restore health and-vitality,'.  The check at the head of this article  js a'fac simile of the one by which Mr.  Petch's-disability claim was paid and is  given' in further corroboration of hia  statements. 0  lently agitated the air around tha body,  but the repelling force threw oft all particles with such violence that their extremely rapid motion through the atmosphere caused a friction that oonsumed  them, and for the fraction of a second  making them luminous, so muoh so as to  cause them to appear like myriads of  infinitesimal -meteors shooting in all  directions away from the repelling body.

Argos is about eight mies distant from  Nauplia to the southeast, five from  Tiryns in the same direction and seven  miles south of Myceuae. The conical  hill, the steep, rocky sides of which rise  above the town, is the ancient Larissa-**-���������  a Pelasgic term signifying an acropolis  or citadel, Its summit, 960 feet high, is  crowned by the remains of the old Cyclopean stronghold, whioh has given place  to a mediaeval fortress, famous in recent  times for its gallant defense by a handful of Greeks under Demetrius Ypsilanti  against the Turkish army   of Dram 4-li.  On the Larissa stood the sacred shrine  of Apollo Prythius, the patron of the  Argive Amphictyony. But the great  divinity of Argos, reverenced above all  others, was Hern, who had won the  land in a contest with Poseidon. She  appears.in the "Iliad" as the proteotress  of the Argives, and her worship remained   supreme with her people   to tho  end. .  Once in four years the great festival  of the goddess was celebrated, when  nearly tbe whole population of Argos  marched in pomp and solemnity to the  sanctuary, the chariot of the priestess  being drawn by a pair of white oxen. It  was on an occasion similar to this that  the oxen being tardy in arriving from  the oountry, Cleobis and Biton yoked  themselves to their mother's chariot,  and having drawn Cydippe to the temple,  a distance of 45 stadia, laid themselves  to rest, after assisting at the festival.  And the goddess in response to the  prayer of her priestess, to reward their  filial devotion by the greatest boon she  oould bestow upon men, reposed the  youths in eternal sleep. The Argives  erected statues to tho brothers at Delphi,  and Pausanias saw a relief at Argos  representing the scene as Solon had  related the story to Croesus when pressed  ^y   him   to   name a man   happier   than  Himself. For tho fame of Hera's sanotu-  ary had spread beyond Greece. In Greece  itself it was esteemed second only to  Olympia and Delphi, and it was here,  acoording to a legend whioh reaohes us  through a later souroe, that the as-  BfHribiedr Greeks ehose Agammemnon as  their leader in their expedition against  Troy and swore allegiance to him.���������  J.

Manners go a  great way, and delicate matters managed  with tact can be carried out without the  slightest blow to the sensitive feelings of  the parties concerned. It is not taot to  rush up to a person and say: "How ill  you are looking." Anyone who is not  feeling well generally knows all about lt.  and does not like to be reminded of the  faot. On the contrary, in meeting anybody who is looking particularly well or  handsome, then is the time to Bpeak. To  be able to keep people in good humor  and' never rub them the wrong way  shows a wonderful amount of tact, but  how many people there are who are  always doing or saying the wrong thing.

Now that remark, to say the  least, did not show tact, a-nd in a,  measure it destroyed the old feeling of j  affection which had existed for so many J  years.

The folly of George III separated  them, never again to be politically united.  But  the time is coming when they   will J  present a united front whenever either s  in serious jeopardy.

We are  aware men are  now at work on the contracts   let   last   fall, but   new  contracts I  Should  be let under the  vote which has  doubtless been given last week.

The issue of The Statistician and Economist for 1897 says that Spain's navy em-  baaces 165 vessels and 10,000 meu, and that  of the United States 90 vessels and 12,621  men. As compared with the naval strength  of other nations, in number of vessels, Spain  ranks fifth, and the United States eleventh.  In the number of men Spain, is tenth, and  the United Staees ninth.  A more detailed comparative statement of  .the naval strength of the two powers may  be found in the following article recently  published.  "Spain has but one first-class battle-ship,  bearing 17   heavy  and  IS  light guns; the  United States has   nine,   with   136   heavy  guns and 297 light  or second battery  guns.  Spain has two second-class batth.-_.hips and  the United States but oue, since the destrue-  I tion of  the  Maine.    The former carry 29  heavy and 22 small guns; tne   United States  vessel about half that number.   Of sea-going  coast defense vessels,   Spain  has'none,   and  the United States 6 with 30 heavy guns aud  54 subordinate  battery.    Of   non-sea-going  coast  defense vessels,  Spain  has two,   and  the United States 14, the former armed with  3 heavy and  6  subordinate   battery  guns;  and the latter with  24 heavy  and  6 light  guus.  "Spain has eight armored cruiser.-, and U.S.  but two, but the armament of the latter it>  superior.    Spain's   cruisers have 14 heavy  guns  and 194 light, and the,United State-  cruisers  38 heavy and 36 subordinate bat  tery guns.    Spain has 12 protected and par  tially   protected cruisers   and   the   Uniter  States 16.    The former are armed with 9. f  large   and   161 small guns,* and tKe latsei  with 169 heavy guns 232 of lighter pateru.  Spain has four unprotected cruisi rs and U   t  Government  five, with a slight pieponxiei  ance of weight' of armament m favor of  th<-  former.    Spain  has   11 first-class guaboa.s  and the United States IS.    The former carr*,  1 heavy 6 subordinate  guns;  the latter 107  heavy guns and 124 subordinate.    Spain ha  13  second-class  gunboats   U.S.Government  none.    She also  has  17  torpedo   boat  dr  stroyers   and the Uui:ed   States but three  Spain has 48 torpedo boats of all classes ano  U.S. Government but 22." ,    .  It will be thus be seen that the Unite<  States Navy is far superior to that ������.f Spai..  in the better ciasaed warship.

Kilpatrick,  Union, B.C.  x    also    x  ������2TDealer in  The question, can corn be successfully  grown in this part of the Dominion? is a  Very important one to farmers ot this district, because on an affirmative answer, will,  to a very great extent, depend tbe question  not only of successful winter dairyiug, but  also that of raising Leef, and pork, iu the  greatest quantity and at least cost.  Corn is not only one of the best plants to  grow for ensilage, but the very best, for  soiling, as the leaves and stalks are eaten  with a relish by all kinds of stock. The  feeding properties are very high, and a  greater weight can be grown per acre, and  in less time, than from any oti.er forage  plant. "       ���������  , According to a report of Mr. S. A. Bedford superintendent   of   the   Experimental  Farm, Brandon, Manitoba, the yield there,  was all the way'from 46 tons 400 lbs., for  thoroughbred White Flint, through a list of  ��������������� 32 varieties, down to 12  tons 420 lbs., for  jDark   Squaw;    this was the weight green.  I believe the question - aa be ausw.. ���������! in the  affirmative, because, although corn has not  been tested in Comox for soiling or ensilage,  <��������� yet it has been very successfully grown oh a  '   small scale in various parts of the district  -for g;������en corn.  From my experience, as a market gard*  ' ener, I can say, I have been as successfull in  growing corn for market, in Comox, as I  was in Toronto. _ have tested Thoroughbred White Flint, on a small scale; with me'  it attained a heighth of ten feet with very  brosd, heavy leaves.  I   h.;ve   not the   slight- at doubt, but it  can be grown here with a very fair inta-ure  of success, if s proper attention be given to'  preparing of tbe   land, planting, and after  ci-kivation.    Still I would not advise farm-  ���������e.-.s to go into its cultivation until they have  experimented a Utile.    It would be well fur.  ������������������(..ii of you to procure a small quantity .f  t-ee-d of different varieties, and plant one or  two* rows through your potatoe held; then  you would have an idea how it would ...row  With you, and what ���������. aiieiies would be m... t)  successful.  The corn that gets i.ear. st to the glazing  stage, that is just when it is too hard for  .green corn before it is cut with frost, is the  best for ensilage, even if the growth is n_ t ,o  large, as the nearer it comes to that stage J  the more feeding properties it contains.  I would recomend the flint varieties as  being the earliest of the large growing kind.  Moores Early Concord, Canadian Yellow,  Early White Flint, Compton's Early,'North  Dakota, and Angel of Midnight, any of  these varieties I think would give good results.  Although Corn is not very particular a-  bout the kind of soil, yet a warm, rich,  ���������sandy loam suits it best; but any land that  will yield a good crop of potatoes will give  a good crop of corn. The land must be well  drained, to get the best results. Spread a  heavy dressing of stable manure, plough and  harrow thoroughly, as to bring the land into  .good tilth.  Planting.���������Planting  in hills, three feet  apart each way, is the common, and the best  way, as it givi s the plants more exposure to  the  sun,   thus, producing more and larger  ���������ears,   and also allows the   cultivator to be  used   both   ways, so that the crop can be  kept clean with the least'amount of hand labor. The time to plant is in May, as soon as  the ground has become warn., and the dan-  ger of frost has past.    Plant about two in-  ohes deep, but if the land is heavy, ��������� one and  a half inches will be deep enough. After marking   off the   land,  which is done by running a marker   both ways, make   the  holes  With the hoe, dropping live or six grains in  ���������each, when   covered press the soil with the  foot.    When danger from cut worms, etc. is  over, remove all p ants except three in each  hill.    There    are  other  ways  of planting,  such as running a furrow two inches deep,  -and dropping five or six grains every three,  feet, or planting with one of the various corn  dropping machines now in use, but the system given above, is the oae I have a ways  . practised.  Cultivation.��������� Corn requires consign., b..t  not deep cultivation.    I commence cultivation  as *ocn as the plants have got about  -*_ ne itich high running the Planet Jr., cL se  up to  the plant.-,   th^n in about, a  week's  time running it at right angles wit._ the first  cultivation.    This I  continue   every   week  until the  corn is  too  high  to  go  through  without breaking the leaves; the more c_ra  is cultivated the  better  the  crop  will  be.  The drier the weather, the greater the need  <of keeping the soil lo.se, .or one inch cf  ���������   For  rates and information apply   at Company's ofiices,  A.DUNSMUIR, JOSEPH HUNTER.  Prosidont. Qon'l Supt  H.K. PRIOR,    '  Gen. Froijfhtand Passensror Afi-t,  Horseshoing and  GENERAL  Blaeksrnithing  loose soil on the surface, acts as a mulch  and prevents the moisture escaping from the  soil.  Do not hill, or draw up the earth apout  the plants, as this is more of an injury than  a benefit; as the strong side roots, or anchor  roots, as they are called, require to be near  the surface, and if the coil is heaped up and  the first side roots are buried, the plant  will send out others,, thus wasting tl ���������  strength and energy that should be used in  producing crop.growtb.  In field culture, the horse cultivator * may  be used, but for the first and second time of  cultivating I should prefer the Planet Jr.,  with it you can* take almost every weed  from about th e plants, while with a horse  cultivator there is sure to be a great number  of weeds left. These would' have to be removed by hand.  Harvesting.���������Corn in its green and succulent state is very susceptible of frost; but  after  leaving   a   slight    per    oentage    of  its,-    moisture,, it    is    not "affected     by  freezing, therefore it must be harvested be  fore danger of such frost as would injure the }  the tops of potatoes.    Corn is harvested, by  tying together   the tops. of four  ajoining  hills, two on one row and two on  the next,  thus  tormng   a stook,  the plants a: e then  cut close to  the ground- with a sickle, or  corn hook.    In this state it can ren.ain until the fodder is dry enough to put in  the  barn or shed.    Before removing the fodder,  the cobs are stripped off the Btalks;  when  those that were near  the   "ajlaziug"  stage  when cut,   will be quite ripe. aud  ready *tc  put in the corn crib. ",This is a bin  built ot  slats,   which    allows   the  air to circulate  through its contents.  For e.silage, the crop is cut and allowed  to remain ou the tield, until it loses from 15  to 20 per cent of its moisture. This it will  do in a few days. It is then taken to the  silos, atd cut .-<.m half, to three quarters of  an   inch.  According to analyzes made by the chemist at the Expenental Farm, Ottawa, corn  fodder at the "glazsng" condition contains  about twice as much digestible matte** as  mangels and about two thirds as much as  timothy and red top grass cut at their best.

LYNCH.  i (CONTINUED.)  ��������� i  \  ��������� "Not quite so fast, Mr. Burrill, just  stand still one moment.' if you can stand  still, which I doubt. You say you will  accompany me wherever I go. 1 say you  may accompany mc wherever people will  tolerate you, nowhere else. You are not  * the man to force into a gentleman's parlor; you would digrace   his   kitchen, his  stable.

If you aro not satisfied with this, then you must be suited  with less. I will not be seen with you at  all"  Again Jasper Lamotte,' vexed and  alarmed for the denoument, interposed;  knowing she was striking at Burrill's  chief weakness:���������  "But Sybil, Miss Wardour, here in her  meetings with Burrill, tactily recognized  his right to call."  ��������� She turned xipon him swiftly.  '    ."You know why sho did it,    sir; it   is  useless to discuss the question. You.may  oalm Mr. Burrill in any way you please,  or can. , You know the terms on whioh  he became my husband. He will continue  my husband on my own terms. He shall  not cross the threshold of Wardour, protected hy nay presence, and without it  the door would close in his face. If Mr.  i Burrill does not like my terms, let him  say so. It is not in his power or yours to  alter my decision." And Sybil once more  gathered together P her ^ silken skirts, lest  In passing they should brush the now  collapsed Mr. Burrill, and swept from  the room.  i     Mr. Lamotte turned to his wife.  "You must talk with that girl," he  said, savagely, "what the devil ails you  all?"  Mrs. juamotte arose and faced him.  "I should be wasting my breath," she  replied, looking him straight in the eye.  ' ��������� You liave tried that girl a little' too far,  Mr. Lamotte," and she followed after  her daughter. .,  j A roar, not unlike- the bellow of a  bull, recalled Mr. Lamotte to the business of the moment. John Burrill, having recovered from his momentary stupor  of astonishment, was dancing an improvised, and unsteady can-can, among  the chairs and tables, beating the air with  his huge fi3ts, and howling with rage.  Seeing this, Mr. Lamotte did first, a  very natural thing; he uttered a string  of oaths, "not loud, but deep," and  next, a very sensible thing; he rang for  brandy and hot water.  And now the battle is in Mr. Lamotte's  bands, why need we linger. Brandy hot  will always conquer a John Burrill.  his   stately   mother  breakfast   room, fol-  | , CHAPTER XVII.  ! When Sybil Burrill, after uttering her  defiance in the face of ..father and husband, had swept from the room, closely  followed by her mother, another form  moved away from the immediate vicinity  , of: the most accessible drawing-room  window���������the form of Evan Lamotte.  Crouching, creeping, shivering, cursing,  bei made his way to the spot where he  _ad. left Frank's horse, and led it toward  the stables.  * Anything but sober when he com-  t nienoed his vigil underneath the drawing-  room windows, he had been shocked into  sobriety by his sister's violence, and his  own rage, against her tormentors. Growing more and more sober, and more and  more, sullen, he stabled the ill-used  thoroughbred with his own hands, and  then, avoiding alike both servants and  family, he crept into the house, and up  to his own room.  In the morning he awoke betimes, and  arose promptly; he had come to know the  l_abibs of his father and John Burrill,  and he had good reason for knowing  Ahem, having of late made their movements his study.  Bun-ill would sleep until nine o'clock;  he always did after a debauch, and he,  Evan, had recently formed a habit of appearing late at breakfast also. From his  room he'kept up a surveillance over all  ���������the household after a method invented  ���������by himself.  1 ' He knew when  ���������swept down to the  lowed soon after by his father  The family'all aimed to breakfast before the obnoxious Burrill had come to  his waking time, and so were rid of nim  for one meal, .ill but i'.van. He and his !  brother-in-law breakfasted together Infer,  and in the most amiable manner. After  a .hue iie heard Fr.ink go clown, and the  ring of his he.-Is assured Evan that lie  ���������was equipped for the saddle.  A little later, and, from his post at his  front window, screened by the flowing  -curtains, Evan saw the horses led  ���������around, saw Sybil.conic down the steps  In her trailing, dark cloth habit, saw- her  spring lightly to the saddle, and heard a  mocking laugh ring out, in response to  some sally from Frank, as they cantered  away.  "Act one in the insurrection," said  Evan, as he turned away from the window. "Now let-me prepare for action."  His preparation were few and simple; he  removed his boots and coat, and crept  out. and softly along the hall until he  reached Burrill's door. Here he paused,  to assure himself that he was not observed, and then softly tried tho door; as  he had expected, it opened without resistance, for Burrill had been escorted to  'bed, by his faithful father-in-law, in a  .state of mellowness, that precluded all  thought for the night, or the dangers it  might; bring forth. Evan entered, cautiously closing the door as he had found  it, and approached the bed. Its occupant  ���������was sleeping heavily, and breathing  melodiously. Satisfied on this point,  Evan opened a, commodious wardrobe  .near tho bed, threw down some clothing,  spread it out smoothly, and then stepping  within, he drew the doors together,  fastened them by a hook of his own contrivance, on the inside; for Evan had  made this wardrobe do service before.  Then he. laid himself down .as.comfortably as possible, and applied his eye to'  some small holes punctured in the dark  wood, and quite inyisible to casual outside observation.  He had began to grow, restless in his  hiding-place, and fiercely disgusted with  the sleeper's monotonously musical whistle, when his waiting was rewarded. The  door once again opened cautiously, and  this time, Jasper Lamotte entered. He  looked carefully about him, then closing  and locking the door, he approached the  sleeper.    ,  "I knew it," thought Evan; "tho fox  will catch the wolf najjping, and / nail  him before he can fortify himself with a  morning dram."  It took some time to arouse the sleeper,  but Jasper Lamotte was equal to the  occasion; this not being his first morning interview with his son-in-law; and,  after a little, John Burrill was sufficiently  awake to scramble through with a hasty-  toilet, talking as he dressed.  "Business is getting urgent," he  grumbled, thrusting , a huge foot into a  gorgeously decorated slipper. "I'd rather  talk after breakfast."  "Pshaw, you are.always drunk,enough  to be unreasonable before noon. Turn  cold water upon your head and be ready  to attend to what I have to. say.''  What he had to say took a long time  in the telling, for it was a long, long  hour before the conference broke up, and  the two men left the room together.  Then the doors of the wardrobe opened  slowly, and a pale, pinched face looked  forth; following the face came the body  of Evan Lamotte, shaken as if with an  ague. Mechanically he closed the wardrobe, ana staggered rather than walked  from the room. Once .-more within his  own room he locked the door with an  unsteady hand, and then threw himself  headlong upon the bed, uttering groan  after groan, as if in pain.  After a time he arose from the bed,  still looking as if he had seen a ghost,  and, going to a desk, opened it, and took  therefrom a capacious drinking flask;  raising it to his lips he drained half its  contents, and the stimulant acting upon  overstrained nerves, seemed to restore  rather than to intoxicate.  "At last," he muttered to himself, "I  am at the bottom of the mystery, and���������I  am powerless." Then, like his sister on  the previous day, he muttered, "There  is but one way���������only one���������and it must  be done!" Then throwing himself once  more upon the bed, he moaned:���������  "Oh, that I, the accursed of the family,  heretofore, should live to be���������but pshaw!  it cls for Sybil I care. But���������for to-day let  them all keep out of my sight���������I could  not see them and hold my peace."  He pocketed the half empty flask, and  made his way from the house to be seen  by none at Mapleton for the next twenty-  four hours.  After that morning interview .with his  father-in-law, John Burrill blusters less  for a few days, and makes himself less  disagreeable to the ladies. He accepts the  situation, or seems to; he rides out on  one or two sunny afternoons with Mrs.  Lamotte and Sybil, and on one of these  occasions they met Constance Ward<������ur,  driving with her aunt. The heiress of  Wardour smiles gay ly and kisses the tips  of her fingers to the ladies, but there is  no chance for him���������he might be the footman for all Constance seems to see or  know to the contrary. This happens in a  thoroughfare where they are more than  l_kely to have been observed, and John  Burrill chafes inwardly, and begins to  ponder how he can, in the face of all the  Lamottes, gain a recognition from Constance Wardour. In his sober moments  this becomes a haunting thought; in his  tipsy'ones it grows to be a mania.  One day, during this lull in the family  siege, Sybil and her mother visit the  city, doing a mountain of shopping, and  returning the next day.- Sybil keeps on  as she began on the night when she  listened to her father and husband while  they held council in her mother's room.  She is full of energy and nervous exoite-  ment always, and the old stupor of dull-;  ness, and apathetic killing of time, never  once returns. But Mrs. Lamotte likes  this last state not much better than the  first; neither does Constance; but they  say nothing, for the reason that it would  be useless, as they know too well. Sybil  goes out oftener, sits with the family  more, and seems like one waiting anxiously for a long expected event.  Joiiu Burrill is a little disturbed at  Sybil's visit to the city. He knows that  she will'go and corneas she pleases there,  unquestioned, and, if she choose, unattended by lier mother. And, without  knowing why, ho feels inclined to rebel;  but he is still under the spell of that  interview, and so holds his  peace.  Evan, too, under the same uncanny  spell, goes about; more morose than  than usual, more sar-  Morn and more, too,  he attaches himself to John Burrill; they  drink together in the dining room, and  then repair together to "Old Forty Bods,"  or some other favorite haunt. Together  thoy seek for pleasure in the- haunts of  the vilest, Evan continually playing upon  the vanity and credulity in Burrill's nature, to push him forward as the leader  in all their debauches, the master-spirit,  the' bon vivant, par excellence. '  And Burrill goes on and on, down and  down. He begins to confide all his maudlin woes to Evan, and that young man  is ever ready with sympathy and advice  that is not calculated to make Jasper La-  sine-   ��������� -A =  At first, this only amuses Miss Wardour; then it annoys her; then, when  she finds her walks in . the grounds so  often overlooked by the slowly passing  Burrill, she begins to mark his maneuvers  with a growing vexation.  But Burrill persevers, and the more  nearly he approaches the fourth stage of  his intoxication, the more open becomes  his stare, the more patent his growing  admiration;  CHAPTER XVIII.  It is night, late and lowering; especially gloomy in that quarter of W��������� where  loom the great ugly rows of tenements  that are inhabited by the factory toilers;  for the gloom and smoke of the great  engines brood over the roofs night and  day, and the dust and cinders could only  be made noticeable by their absence.  In a small cottage, at the end of a row  of larger houses, a woman is busy clearing away the fragments of a none too  bountiful supper. A small woman, with  a sour visage, and not one ounce of flesh  on her person that is not^ absolutely  needed to screen from mortal gaze a b������ne.  A woman with a long, sharp nose, two  bright, ferret-like brown eyes, and rasping voice, that seems to have worn itself  thin aaking hard questions of Prftvidence,  from sunrise till dark.  The table has been spread for two, but  the second party at the banquet, a gamin  son aged Beven, has swTallowed his own  ana all he could get of ids mother's  share, and betaken himself to the streets,  night though it be. t .  The'woman moves about, ,now and  then muttering to herself as she works.  The room is shabbily furnished, and not  over neat, for,its mistress spends her days  in the great mill hard by, and housekeeping has become a secondary matter.  Only .he'needs of life find their demands  honored in this part of W���������*.. Too often  needs get choked and die of the smoke  and the cinders.  It is late, for the woman has been doing extra work; it is stormy, too, blustering and spattering rain.   Xet she pauses  occasionally and listens to a passing footfall, as   though she expected a visitor.  At last, when the final touch has made  the room as tidy as it ever is, or as she  thinks it need' be, there comes a shuffling  of feet outside, and a tremendous thump  on the rickety door. After which, as if he  was sufficiently heralded, in comes a man,  a big man, muffled to the eyes in' a huge  coat, which he slowly draws down and  draws off, diclosing to the half curious,  half contemptuous gaze of the woman  the auburn locks and highly tinted countenance of* Mr. John Burrill.  "So," she says, in her shrillest voice,  "It's you, is it? It seems one is never to  be rid of you at any price.''  "Yes, it's me���������all of me," the man replies, as if confirming a doubtful statement. "Why, now; you act as if you  didn't expect me."  "And no more I did," says the woman  sullenly and most untruthfully. , "It's a  wonder to, me that you can't stay away  from here, after. all that's come and  gone."  "Well, I can't,"he retorts, amiably  rubbing his hands together. "Anyhow, I  won't, which means about the same  thing.    Where's the little duffer"  "He's where you were at his age, I expect," she   replies grimly.  "Well, and if he only keeps on as I  have, until he gets up to my present age,  he won't be in a bad boat, eh, Mrs. Burrill the first "  "He's got too much1 of his mother's  grit to be where you are, John Burrill,  livin' a lackey among people that despise  you beeause you hare got a hand on 'em  somewhere. I want to know if you don't  think they will choke you off some day  when they are done using you?"  John Burril seated himself astride a  low wooden chair, and propelling it and  himself forward by a   movement   of   the  "'that you are getting along too fast with  your story."  '' Yes, I am too fast. When you first  hatched out this plan you came to me  and put a pistol to my head, and swore  that if I didn't apply for a divorce from  you at once, you would blow my brains  out. 1 had swore more than once to have  a divorce; and Lord knows I had cause  enough; what, with the drunkenness  and the beatings, and the idleness, and  the night prowlin\ and all the rest; but  I never expected that."  The woman paused for a moment, and  then resumed her, tirade of mixed eloquence and bad grammar.  "I didn't'expect to   be drove into   the  divorce court at the point of a pistol, but  that's how it ended, and you was free to  torment   Miss     Lamotte,   ,poor     young  thing!   Don't you let yourself think that  I envied her!   Lord   knows   I   had  had  enough of you, and your meanness, but I  pitied her;, and if Jihad knocked out your  brains, as I've   been   tempted   to   do   a  dozen times,   when   you-   have   rolled in  here drunk, I'd   have   done ' her a good  turn, and myself too   Tho time was when  Nance Fergus was your equal, and   more  too; but you loft England   with   the notion that here you woula be  tho equal of  anybody, and you've never   got   clear of  the idea.    I've tried to   make you understand that there's a coarse breed of folks,  same's there is of dogs, and that you are  a mighty coarse   breed.    I've , lived   out  with   gentle   folks   over   the water, and  they were none of your sort:   But, go on'  John Burrill, the low women you are so  fond of, and the girls at the factory, have  called you good lookin', until   your head  is,turned   Avith   vanity.    You   have   got  yourself in  among   the   upper   class, no  matter how, and   I   suppose  you expect  your good looks to do the rest for you.'  I  mind   once   when   I   was   at service in  Herefordshire,   the .Squire   had   a   fine  young beast, in' his   oattle yard, .black an'  sleek, an' handsome to look  at,   and the  young ladies   came   down . from the big  house and looked at it through the fence,  and called it a 'beautiful   oreature,'   but  all the same   they   led   it   away   to the  slaughter house with a.ring in   its  nose,  and "the young ladies   dined off it with a  relish."  John Burrill stroked his nasal organ  fondly, as if discerning some connection  between that protuberance and tho aforementioned ring; but he made no attempt  to interrupt her.  wmsc^^pes  GROWING MUSHROOMS.

When Henry Barstow got home the  other night after a hard day's work in  the office, the first things .that attracted  his attention were a lot of deep ruts in  his lawn.  He had. taken pride in that lawn.  Through all the summer months he had  nursed it. He had lifted up little pieces  of sod from vacant lots near by and  'planted them upon the bare spots in his  yard. > He had raked and mowed and  clipped and worked until his lawn looked  like a big piece of green velvet. His  neighbors had praised his industry;' and  his heart had been glad.  It .is .little wonder therefore that he  thought things which cannot be printed  when he saw half a dozen deep wagon  tracks in his beloved sod.  He entered the house, fairly livid with,  rage.

"Why," said Mildred Barsfow, ''the  coal man has been here." -  "*��������� "Oh, he has, has he? Haven't I always  had the coal dumped in the street and  carried into the basement?"  "Yes, but you know you ordered coke  this time."  "Well, what of it? Why didn't you  have it carried in just the same?"  "But I didn't suppose it would do  any barm to drive over the lawn with  coke."  ' You didn't? And why not?"  "Coke,    you   know,"    said Mrs; Bar-  stow, as she patted her husband's cheeks,  isn't   nearly as heavy as coal."  "How much did the man bring at a  time?"  "A ton, he said."  "And so you think a ton of coke  isn't as heavy as a ton of coal?"  "Whv, of course. It isn't, is it?.'.*  Mr. Barstow said nothing then. He,  put his hands down into his pookets,  walked out and looked at the deep ruts  for a long time.

MUSHROOM'BED IN COOL CELLAR.  work,of preparing the manure begins in  September aud ends in February, and  the packing of the crop begins in October or November and ends in May. Under extraordinary conditions the season  begins earlier and lasts longer and, in  fact, may continue all summer.  Mushrooms can bo grown almost anywhere but of doors and also . indoors  where" there is a dry bottom on which  to set the .beds, where a uniform and  moderate temperature can be maintained-  and where; the beds can .be protected  from wet. overhead aud from winds,  drought, and direct sunshine. To grow  mushrooms < for profit they should be  cultivated only under tho most favorable circumstances. Total darkness is nou  imperative, but temperature and moisture are' more apt to be equable in dark  places, and it is largely for this reason  that mushroom houses are kept dark.  A cellar is an excellent place in which  to grow mushrooms. If the floor is free  from water, it matters not whether it  is made of cement or of wood. The windows and doors should be closed up and  darkened. In case only a part of the cellar is devoted to the beds, this part  should be partitioned off with cheap  boards, or if that is impracticable the  beds themselves may be covered over  with mats, straw, etc., or may be boarded up. If the cellar is not heated, the ,  beds should be built on the floor only i  and should be 14 inches * deep. If the  cellar is heated, besides the beds on the  floor, shelf beds eight to ten inches  deep may be used. In the case of a cool  cellar, a warm shed or a tunnel being  given up altogether to mushrooms, it is  not an uncommon way to spread the  beds, or bed rather, all over the floor,  with a path one board wide raised over  the bed.  A cave or a tunnel is practically the  same as a cellar, except that these are  seldom artificially heated. For this reason the beds are seldom, in raised shelves, '  any  it  -Tot in the Sump Class.  "Don't you speak to Mrs.    Brown  more?"  "No, indeed.

With beds built in this way and. a good  dry bottom, caves or tunnels make excellent places in which to grow the  crop.- A mushroom house is generally a  wooden building built above ground or  partly sunk. Any house or shed that  can'be kept tight, warm and moderately  moist will answer.

Hewlett in The Lancet shows that tho  old practice   of   prescribing preparations  of the toad as   remedies   for   dropsy was  not so absurd as   might   at first  appear,  ������or, as   he   has   shown,    a   substance is  secreted by the   toad's skin   that is very  like   digitaline, and hence   may   have a  favorable   effect   in    cases     of     cardiac  dropsy.    It would appear   that the active  principles of the venoms of the toad and  slamander are totally different   substances   from    those   of   snake   venom,   the  former being alkaloidal, while the latter  are proteid in nature.   Curiously enough  the venom of   the   toad and   salamander  is fatal to   the   animal which secretes it  only in comparatively large amounts.  The  salamander appears to be remarkably refractory to   certain   poisons.    It   is only  completely "curarized" by 43 milligrams  of curare, while morphine is   apparently  quite inactive. It has been demonstrated  by actual experiment that   the  salamander's blood and   blood   serum    act as an  antitoxine toward   curare.     The   article  seems to   show    that   the    belief   of the  ancients in    the   venomous    nature   the  toad arid salamander was not altogether  devoid of   foundation.���������American Druggist. .  Storing Potatoes.,  Potato crop reports from all over the  eastern stateB agree in stating that rot  or blight has widely prevailed. Rural  New Yorker says: While it is likely  that potatoes will bring a high price before spring, our own plan this year is  to sell the crop as soon as we conveniently can. Storage in the damp soil  during hot or muggy weather or in a  warm, damp and close cellar will bo favorable for the growth of tho germs,  and rot will surely spread through the  tubers. Those who can keep the potatoes in a dry, cool and well ventilated  place may possibly do better by holding  them for a later trade.  When dug out of fields where the  vines have blighted, we would dust a  handful of air slaked lime over each  bushel of potatoes intended for storage.  For the benefit of succeeding crops we  would rake up the vines and burn them  at once. Readers might as well make  up their minds now that seed potatoes  ���������frill be high next spring. Last April we  bought excellent seed at $1 per barrel.  It is now impossible to contract for the  same varieties for next spring's delivery  for less than $3.  Geographical Facts.

TALMAGE ON RELIGIOUS  NEWSPAPERS.  If They Have  the  Rijcht   Spirit, He Says,  *, i  Each  One  Does  More  Good Than Fifty  Pulpits���������Editorial Itespousibility.  [Copyright 1S97, by  American  Press Association.]  Washington, Nov. 28.���������In a previous  discourse, Dr. Talmnge having shown  the opportunities of the secular press, in  this discourse speaks of the mission of  religious newspapers. His text is, "Then  I turned and lifted up mine' eyes and  looked, and bohold a flying roll," Zeo'har-  ' iah v, 1. ,  In a dream the prophet saw something  rolled up advancing through the 'heavens^ lt contained a divine message." It  movod swiftly, as oil wings. It had much  to do with tho destiny of nations. But  - if you will look up you will seo many  flying rolls. Thoy come with great spend  and have messages for all the earth.  Tho flying rolls of this century aro tho  newspnpors. Thoy carry niessagos human  and divine. Thoy will decide the destiny  of the hemispheres.'  Thero are in the United States about  80,000 nowspupers. The religious newspaper of which, I am the editor was born  ' 19 years ago, but born again seven years  ago. In this brief time it has grown to  about 200,000 circulation, and, by the  ordinary rule of calculating the readers  of a paper, it has about 1,000,000 readers. Our country was blest with many  religious journals-, edited by consecrated  men, while their contributors were the  ablest and best of all professions and  .occupations. Some - of thse journals for  half a century had been dropping their  benedictions'upon the nations and they  ��������� live on and will continue to live on until  there will be no moro use for their mission, tbe world itself having becomo a  flying roll on .the temDests of the last  day, going out of existence. There w 11  bo no more use for such agencies when  the world ceases, because, in' the spiritual state, we shall have such velocity  tbat we can gather for ourselves all the  news of heaven, or seeing some world in  conflagration, may go ourselves in an in-  Btant to examine personally the scene of  disaster.  Was there room for another religious  journal in this land, already favored with  the highest style of religious- journal! _n ?  Oh, yes, >if undenominaitonal, plenty of  room. Nothing can ever take the pla.ee  of the denominational newspaper. When  the millennium comes in, it will firm  as many denominations as there are  now. People, according to the'r t.'inp--ra-  ments, will always prefer this or ���������'���������.-t,  form of church government, this o- : h it  style of worship. You might as well ask  _us all to live in one house as to a ok us  all to worship in one denomination or to  abolish the, regiments, of an .nrmy in  order to mako them one great host.  , Denominational 'I.upers.  Each denomination must have its own  journal, set apart especially to present  tho oharitles, explain the work and forward the interests of that particular  sect. The death of one denominational  journal is a calamity to all the other denominations. I would almost feel that a  ereat misfortune had happened me if  The Christian Intelligencer of the Reformed church (my mother church) did  not come to my house every week, for I  was brought up on it. and it has become a household necessity. Such a denominational journal had better be edi  ted bv some one who rocked in the cradle  of that church and, ordained at her  altars, having become venerable in her  service, sits spectacled and wise aud,  with heart full of sacred memories, addresses the living of to-day. In the most  sacred crypt of our memory stands the  statue of the religious editors Abel Stevens and Joshua. Leavitt and tbe royal  family of the primes, Irenajus and  Eueebius, while others linger on the  banks of the Jordan, where they will not  have long to wait for Elijah's chariot,  and when they go up, if we still be sitting at'our editorial desks, we will cry  out in the memorable words, "My father,  my father, the chariot of Israel and the  horsemen thereof!" r  But, then, there are great movements  In whioh all denominations wish to join,  and we want more undenominational  newspapers to..marshal and advance and  inspire such movements. Yet such journals have a difficult task, because all  Christian men, if .they have behaved wel*;  in their denominations, for some reason  prefer the one of their natural and  spiritual nativity and, even looking off  upon the general field and attempting  wider work, will be apt to look at things  through denominational preference and  to treat them with a denominational  twist. In tho issuing of the religious  journal whose seventh anniversary I  preach that difficulty has boon met and  overcome by the faot that its publisher  is a Methodist and in its editorial rooms  there are a Presbyterian, an Episcopalian  and a Congregationalist, and a lino of  denominational prejudice in editorial or  reportorial column would run against  immediate protest. Against John Wes-.  ley's"Free Grace," or Calvin's "Eternal Decrees," or Bishop . Mollvaine's  "Canonicals," or Dr. Dowling's "Baptistery," from year's end to year's end  not a word is written or printed. On all  these subjects we have convictions, but  undenominational journalism is not the  place to state them. He who tells all he  knows and expresses all he thinks on all  occasions and in all places without refer,  ence'to the proprieties is a boor or a  crank and of no practical service either to  church or state.  The Undenominational Press.  Undenominational journalism is absolutely necessary.to demonstrate the unity  of the Christian world. Wide and desperate attempt is made to show that the  religion of Jesus Christ is only a battle-,  ground of sects, and the cry has been:  "If you want us to accept your religion,  agree, gentlemen, as to what the   Chris  tian religion really is. This, denomination says a few drops of water dripping  from the end of the finger is baptism,  and another demands the submergence  of the entire body. This one prays with  book and that ,one makes extemporaneous utterance. The rector of one de-"  livers his sermon in a gown, while the  backwoods preacher of another, sect addresses the people in his shirt sleeves.  Some of your denominations have the  majestic dominant in the service and  others spontaneity. Some of you think  that from all eternity some were predestined to be saved and that ' from all  eternity others were doomed." Now, it  is the business of young Men's Christian  associations and tract societies and Sunday school unions and pronounced undenominational journals to show the falsity of the charge that we are fighting  among ourselves by gathering all Christian denominations on one platform or  launching tlie .united sentiment,of all  Christendom from one style of religious  printing press.  . Unity, complete unity. Never was any  other'army on oarth so thoroughly united  under one flag and inspired by one senti-  ment-and led by one commander, as it  the church' militant. Christ commands  all the troops of all denominations of  Christians, and ther aro going to shout  together in the final victory when the  whole world is redeemed.  But we have in all our denominations  got tired of trying to make other people  think as we do on all points. The heresy  hunters in all denominations are nearly  all dead, thank God, and we are learning that when men get wrong in their  faith, instead of martyrizing them by  arraignment we do better to wait for  the natural roll of years to remove them.  Men die, but the - truth lives on. We  may not'all agree as to the number of  teeth in the jawbone with .which Samson slew the Philistines, or agree as to  what was the exact color of the foxes  which ,he set on fire to burn up the corn  shocks, but, on the vitals of religion,' we  all agree.  If we could call into one great convention the 645^5.6 Episcopalians, the 1,-  420,905 Lutherans, the 1,460,346 Presbyterians, the 4,153,857 Baptists, the 5,-  653,289 Methodists, putting unto them  the following questions, we would get  unanimous answer in the affirmative:  Uo you believe in , a God, good, holy,  just, omnipotent? Do you ' believe in  Jesus Christ as a Saviour? Do you believe in the convicting, converting and  sanctifying power of the Holy Ghost? Do  you believe that the gospel is going to  concmer all nations? If you should put  these questions to those assembled millions on millions, while there would nit  bo a solitary negative, there would be an  aye, aye, aye, loud enough to make the  foundations of the earth tremble and the  arches of the heavens resound. Let there  be platforms, let there be great occasions,  let there bo undenominational printing  pressos to thunder forth the unity of all  Chri-siendom. One Lord.' One faith. One  ba:i Km. One God and Father. One  Jeiiis Christ.  One cross. One heaven.  So also there is room for a religious  journal that stands for liberty as against  all .oppression. No authority,* ' political  or ecclesiastic, must be permitted to  make us believe this,or that. Liberty of  the Armenian to worship God independent of the Turkish government. Liberty  of Cuba as against Spanish domination.  Liberty of Hawaii as against all roon-  archial authority, whioh it has thrown  off. Civil liberty. Political liberty. Religious liberty.  The religious journal on whose seventh  anniversary I preach has had for its  owner and publisher one who in his  ancestry experienced just the opposite.  His father, an exile from his native land  because of his opinions, his property confiscated, his life imperiled, landed on  American soil bereft of everything that  foreign oppression could rob him of.  Naturally his son knows right well how  to appreciate liberty. The most of us are  descended from those who imperiled all  to gain their natural and religi ous  rights. Let the type and the printing  presses and the editoral chairs be overthrown which dare to surrender to any  attempt again to put on the shackles.  The movement has started for the demolition of all the tyrannies of church and  state. Religious newspapers must stand  shoulder to shoulder iu this mighty  march for God and the   world's   rescue.  Old Fashioned Evancclism.  A gain, on this seventh anniversary I say  there is room for a religious paper  charged with old fashioned evangelism.  Other styles of religious newspaper may  do for advertising purposes or for the  presentation of able essays on elaborate  theme's, but if this world is ever brought  to God it will be through unqualified  evangelism. It was astounding that the  Lord Almighty should have gone into  great bereavement, submitting to the  loss of his only Son, that Son stepping  off the doorsill of heaven into a darkness  and an abysm that no plummet has ever  yet been able to fathom, and through  that funeral of the heavens life is offered  to our world. But how to get the tidings  to all people and in such an attractive  way that they will take hold of them is  the absorbing question. The human voice  can travel only a few feet away, and the  world wants something further and  wider reaching, and that is the newspaper press, and as the secular press  must necessary give itself chiefly to  secular affairs let the religious newspaper givo itself to the present and everlasting salvation of all who can read or  if not able to read, have ears to hear  others read. If there be an opportunity  higher, deeper, grander, than that offered to newspaper evangelism, name it and  guide us to it, that we may see its  altars, its pillars, its domes, its infinitude.  Again, on this ssventh anniversary of  The Christian Herald I notice there is  room for a religious paper thoroughly  humanitarian. The simple fact is the  majority of the human race havo not  enough to eat or wear. The majority of  the human race are in trouble. How to  multiply loaves of . bread and increase  the fuel and heal the wounds and shelter  the homeless are questions tbat Christ  met equally as soon as he did spiritual  necessities.    The first heart to respond to  tne cry of* sufferers from drought or  flood or earthquake' or cruelty should be  the Christian- heart. Therefore let the  pages of religious journalism spread out  the story of all such woes and collect relief and disburse ' alms all around our  suffering world. Religious journalism  ought to become the aqueduct through  whioh the Christian charities of the  ,world should pour until there is no more  hunger to be fed and no more ignorance  to be educated and no moro nakedness to  be clothed and no more suffering to  assuage. In trying to do that practical  thing the religious paper whose anniversary I celebrate has, during the past  seven years, raised and distributed ovor  $400,000 for the' relief of physical distresses.  An Optimistic Press.  Again, on tbis'seventh anniversary   of  a   religious   publication    I   notice   that  there is an especial mission   for a religi-'  ous journal   truthfully   optimistic.    The  most optimistic   book   I   know of is the  Bible, and its   most   impressive  authors  were all optimists.    David   an optimist.  Paul an optimist.   St. John an optimist.  Our bl_ssed Lord an optimist., ��������� I cannot  look upon a desert but I   am   by the old  book reminded that it will," blossom like  as the rose."    I   cannot in a   menagerie  look upon'a   lion   and   a   leopard but'I  am reminded   that 4.4a   little   child shall  lead them."    I cannot see a collection of  gems in   a   jeweler's   window   without  thinking of   lieaven   aflash ' and   ablaze  and incarnadined   and   empurpled   with  all manner of precious stones.    I cannot  hear a trumpet but I   think   of that one  which shall wako the dead.. All the ages  of time,   bounded   on   on������   side   by the  paradise in which Adam and Eve walked  and on the   other   side   by   the paradise  , which St. John saw in apocalyptic vision.  The   Scriptures    optimistic   and   their  authors optimistic,    all   religious   newspapers ought to be optimistic.    Not only  should   all   ministers   and   all religious  'editors have their heart right, bnt   their  liver   right. ��������� The   world   has     enough  trouble   of   its . own without our giving  them an extra   dose in the   shape   of religion.    This world is going to be saved,  and if you do not   believe,  it you are an  infidel. None of us wants to get on board  a train which, instead   of   reaching   the  depot, is surely going down the em ban k-  Tmenc.    All aboard for   the   millennium!  For the most part in a religious   journal  let the editorials be cheerful. . If   in one  column thero   be   a   ghastly woodcut of  the famine stricken in>India, in the next  column have   a list of contributions   for  alleviation of the suffering   or   a picture  of a ship carrying breadstuffs.    If in one  column there   be   the   death, of   an old  minister   of the gospel whom we cannot  spare, in the next "put the. name of  some  young Elisha who can   wear the   mantle'  of Elijah.    If some evil of society is   depicted in one column, in the next   show  the gospel machinery   that is to   drive it  back into the   perdition   from   which it  ascended.    More and   more sunshine  let  there* be in  religious   journalism..   Publish in it more sermons on texts like "O  give   thanks   unto    the   Lord,   for he is  good,'   and fewer on texts   like "Out of  the depths of hell have I cried unto,,thee,  O   Lord.'\   If   any   one has     anything  gloomy to say, let him say it to himself.  If he must write it, let  him   not send it  to editorial   rooms,    but   put   it   in the  pigeonhole of his own desk for his   heirs  and   assigns   to   read it further on,   for  probably they can   stand   it better than  we.    I onoe gave $7 to hear Jenny   Lind  sing.    I never will give a cent to   hear a  man   groan.    Up   with   the    blinds and  throw back   the   shutters   and   let   the  morning light come in.    There  is not so  much religion in the dampness of a cellar  as in ,the breath of an   apple   orchard in  blossom week. What a victory David got  over himself when he closed the   Psalms  with   six   chapters   of   "Praise   ye   the  Lord " saying   it   over   and over  again  until in any other   book   it   would have  become monotonous.:   If   in   our diaries  and our family records and our religious  newspapers   we   would write two honest  catalogues, the one a catalogue of   blessings   and   the   other   a     catalogue     of  troubles, the former would be five  times  larger than the latter.  Prayers'for Reliffious Papers.  Pray for the religious newspapers of  America'because of the fact that if they  have the richt spirit each one does as  much good as 5 or 50 or 200 churches.  What are the 500 or 5,000 people making  up a Sabbath audience compared with  the. ,10,000 or 50,000 or 200,000 that the  religious journal addresses? Such journals are pulpits that preach day and  night. They reach weekly those who  through invalidism or through indifference never1 enter churches. They reach  people in their quietude, when their  attention is not distracted as In church  by the fine millinery that appeals to the  eye or the rustle of attire that attracts  the ear. It will always be.our duty and  our privilege not to forsake the assembling of ourselves together, but I believe  the consecrated printing press is the  chief agency under God to save the  world.  Pray also for the religious newspapers  of America that they may resist the  temptation to become acerb, harsh and  damnatory of those who think differently from themselves. In all denominations  there are disappointed people who put  mean things in religious newspapers  about ministers and other prominent  Christian workers. Unsuccessful men and  women never like successful men and  women. There are editors and reporters  who, inhtcad. of. writing with ink, dip  their pens iu oil of vit-iol or lampblack.  When a religious newspaper does lie, it  beats all secular journalism in contempt-  ibility. As Adam Clarke, the commentator, said, "Some people serve the Lord  as though the devil were in them."  That only is a helpful newspapor which,  as we fold it up after reading, leave us  in a mood to pray for all men and in a  spirit that wishes prosperity for all  Christian workers, whether thoy work  our way or some other way, and we  feel as though the angel, flying through  the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach, had with the  flapping wing stirred the air on our  cheek and forehead.  Pray also for religious journalism that  it may be alert���������not abreast of the times,  but ahead   of the   times.    In    tins   day.  when by' cablegram we seem to get from  Europe news five   hours before it  starts,  we   do not   want   in   our  religious columns information scissored   out   of    an  old newspaper   or   information   sent by  means of a   letter   which   comes   to   us  through the   dead   letter   post-office   because it   was   misdirected.    Nor   do   we  want it   to   take   the   place of religious  journalism   as   it   was   in    18.5,   when  Nathaniel Wilson   started   his   religious  paper called The Recorder, or when   The  Watchman was   born    in    1819, or when  The   Chi'istian    Register   made its   first  appearance in 1821.  The canalboat drawn  by mules on   a   towpath   did well in its  time, but now we prefer   the   vestibuled  limited express.  Because a thing is pious  it need not therefore be dull    Tne printing press   may   beat   tho   Argus of mythology, for   that   fabulous    being   bad  ,only a hundred eyes while the newspaper  has a   thousand   eyes,    and   a thousand  ears, and a thousand arms.    The secular  newspaper gives the   secular   news   and  does   not   pretend to give   its   religious  meaning.     The   religious press  ought to  put all the .events of the day in oompan-  ������������������ies, regiments   and   brigades   and,show  us in what direction that   divinely    disciplined   host   is   marching   and   let us  know what victories for God and    right-  ousness they will win.  The Christianized  printing press is to do in our time   on a  largo scale what tho   battering   ram did  in the olden time   on   a    smaller   scale.  That old war machine was a stout   timber, hung by chains to a beam supported  by posts, and many men would lay  hold  of the stout timber   and   swing it backward and forward   until, getting   under  full   momentum,    it   would    strike into  awful demolition the wall besieged:  God  grant.that all of us who  have   anything  to do with   the   mighty   battering   ram  .of our century, the   printing press,   may  be clothed'of God with especial   strength  and oneness of purpose, and   that, ��������� having pulled it back   for   one   mighty   assault, we _may    altogether   rush   it forward, crushing into everlasting ruin the  last wall of opposition and   the last fortress of iniquity.  Editorial Responsibility.' ''  And how let all of us who are connected with either secular or religious journalism remember that we will be called  into final account for every word we  write in editorial or reportorial or contributors' column, for, every type we set,  for every press we move and for the  style of secular or religious newspaper  we patronize or encourage. In Ezekiel's  prophecy the angel of God, supposed to  be Christ, appears with an ink horn  hung at hie side, as an attorney's clerk  in olden time had an inkhorn at his side.  And I have no doubt the inkhorn will  have an important- part in the day of  judgment, those who have used it weir  .to'receive eternal plaudit and those who  have misused it to,riecieve condemnation.  Piled up in all the world's printing  offices, secular and religious, are the  publications of past years, bound up year  by year, and in those offices they can  tell just what they printedany day for  the last 20 years, and in the great day of  judgment all that we have ever written^  or printed will be revealed from the  mighty volumes of eternity. All those  who have ruthlessly pried into the secret  of unhappy domestic life and despoiled  homes, come to judgment 1 All thoso who  have by the pen assassinated character,  come to judgment! All those who have  had anything to do with salacious and  depraved literature, come to judgment!  All those who have produced pictu.es  administrative of vice, come to judgment 1 No one will then dare say, "I  knew it was not true, and I only intended it for a joke," or, "I had to make  my living, and the paper that I worked  for' paid me in proportion to the startling  nature of the stuff I prepared," or, "I  corrected the falsehood in the next issue,  or, "I felt my power in the ediitorial  chair, having opportunity to address  such multitudes week by weak, and I  wanted to keep the church and the world  in awa of me.'' On that great day of  judgment all the power we have had on  earth will bo insignificant compared with  the power that will pronouce our rapture  or our doom and that which might have  been considered a joke in the "composing  room," because it humiliated an enemy,  will be no joke at all amid the wreok of  mountains and seas, and the inkhorn  will there tell of all we wrote anonymously and under the impersonality o������  a newspaper, as well as that which was  signed with our own Mme; But what a  beautiful day for a Frances Havergal,  when she gets rewarded for all the kind  things she ever wrote with the tears of  her invalidism, or when the authors and  authoresses of all lands and ages are told  how many came to heaven through their  instrumentalities, and for all those who  use the influence of the press to correct  the errors and extirpate the wrongs and  break the   serfdom of mankind!  Then the inkhorn by the side of the  angel of the new covenant' will speak  ont and tell of what it had to do with  all letters of kindness written, with all  emancipation*proclamations,with all editorial and reportorial eulogies of the good,  with all the messages of salvation to a  lost world. Better in that day will it be  to have set up the type .for one lino of  Christian encouragement or written one  paragraph of useful sentiment, or published one page of,helpful truth than to  have written books as big as Gibbon's  five largo volumes concerning "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire,"  if these volumes put Christianity at a  di3davantage, or as brilliant as Voltaire's  "Discourses Upon Man," if they inculcated injurious theories, or as rhythmio  as Byron's "Don Juan," if it sacrificed  the decencies. On that day the flying  roll which Zechariah of the text saw  thousands of years ago, and the rolls  which we see flying otter all our towns  and cities, and flying from the swiftest  printing presses that were ever invented,  will he found to contain messages divine  or satanic. Not only the inkhorn which  Ezekiel saw, but all tho inkhorns will  come to judgment. "And I saw the  dead, small and great, stand before God,  and the books Were opened."  Germany'3 contingent of the international army of occupation, consisting of  an officer and twelve marines, left  Canea Friday morning.  HUT WATER'SHOES.  A German Invpntor  Places a Heating: Device in the  Heel.  Cold feet are an affliction   common   Go-  the human race.    The   cold-feet   brigade-���������  may   take-heart, however, for a benefactor   bas   arisen   in    the   person of Paul -  Wonneberger,   of   Gruna,   near Dresden,  who has invented what he   calls   "Heat--  abls Shoes," says the   New York World.  The novel remedy for cold feet consistE''  of a tiny boiler and furnace in the heel-  and sole of the shoe, which causes a con'  tinuous circulation of warm water  around the extremities. Within the heel  the inventor has * placed a glowing substance similar in its nature to that used  in the familiar Japanese hand-warmers.  The soles of the shops are hollowed out  for the reception of a rubber bag covered  with asbestos, containing the water that  keeps the feet warm.  When tho owner of a pair of heatable  shoes wishes to go out into the cold and'  sloppy street he opens the receptacle in  the heel of the shos, lights tho punklike substance, closes the perforated  band that holds it in place, and then  sallies forth to bid defiance to his old  enemy, the chills.  There is no danger of the feet being  uncomfortably wanned, for the water  cannot bo heated by tho tiny furnace in  tho heel to heat moro than 70 drgrees-  Fahrenheit. The inventor has provided  against the bursting of the littlo boiler  by the insertion of a small   safety valve.  The shoes are a trifle heavier than the  ordinary ones. The sole is but - very  little thioker than that of the - wot  weather shoe sold by Now York dealers.  The inventor is at work on a'new shoe  that will be no heavier than the ordinary  one.  iff  .Growlii8. Older.  Thanksgiving days come and go. We  are growing older every year. Some of  us have turned our faces toward the full  shining of.the western sun. We ,have  beautiful memories of the old days of our  childhood, and the nearer day of our  maturer years. We love to sit in the twilight and" think of them. We marvel  at God's wondrous grace, which enabled  us to travel so safely and with so few  toil marks on our garments, when we  consider the danger of the shadowy  passes through which we have come. We  cthank Him that He has brought us out  upon the beautiful table lands, from  whose heights we can catch glimpses of  he Beulah-land which lies about the city  of our God. |  Colic and Kidney Difficulty.���������Mr. J. W.  Wilder, J. P., Lafargeville, N. Y., writes:  "I am subject to severe attacks of' Colic  and Kidney Difficulty, and find Parmelee's Pills afford me ' great relief, while  all other remedies have .failed., They are  the best medicine 1 have ever used.'? - In  fact so great is the power of this medicine  to cleanse and purify, that diseases of all  most every name and nature are driven  from the body. . ,  To Tell a "Fresh ���������grs. 'f  To ascertain the'1 freshness of-an' egg, :  without breakinc, hold it before a strong  light and look directly through the shell.  If the yolk appears round and the1 white  surrounding it clear, the chances are that  the egg is fresh. Or you may drop it into  water; if the egg,sinks quickly and remains at the bottom it is 'in all probability fresh, but if it stands on end it -is  doubtful, and quite Bad if it floats. The  shell of a fresh egg' looks dull, while  that of a stale one is glossy.���������Mrs.  Rorer in Ladies' Home Journal.  S.  T.  Minard's Liniment Cures Dandruff.  A Handsome  Prince. i  Prince Boris, the future ruler of Bulgaria, is a pretty little boy, and he is  fortunately too young to be at all aware'  of the bitter quarrels which raged ovwr  his cradle. He was still an infant in  arms when he was "converted"' to the  Orthodox faith to the great anger of his  mother; indeed, at the time she declared  that nothing would induce her to continue taking care of her child, but maternal love conquered, and though Boris  is taken in state each Sunday to an  Orthodox or Greek church place of worship, he is vigilantlv guarded from those  who might wish to go him harm.  -Wires a Protection AsrainstXifi-htninsr.  "People living, in cities are prone to  believe that the*:* increasing number of  telephone, telegraph and trolley wires  inorease the danger from electrio  storms," writes Edward W, Bok in the  Ladies' Home Journal. "On the contrary, the maze of wires is a protection,  and lessens the danger, since it is shown  that where the wires attract the electricity they hold it, and discharge it only at  the end of the wires in the central  station. The faot is that of the two hundred lightning acoidents every year *only  an averaee of forty occur in the cities.  The trees in the country are a far greater  danger; thoy account f.r the proportion of four cases in the country to one  in tho city."  Cant, meaning mook humility, took  its name from the Rev. Andrew Cant,  a minister in Aberdeenshire who during  tho time of the Covenanters was famed  for his wh'nlng   and   pretending fervor.  RHEUMATISH  Jas. McKee,  Lachlin McNiel,  John A.
