The concert in aid of- the  Athletic Association fund  waa fairly attended/and the programme was, on  ���������the   whole,  a  pleasing  one.     Mrs  Glassford's' piano  solo,  from  '" La  Somnambula" ' was well rendered,  but was unfortunately*  marred by  the performer having to play on, ar  poor'instrument.    Too  much care  can hot be exercised by a committee  in charge,  in   procuring   suitable  accessories for functions of this sort,  otherwise an injustice is done to the  performers.

The Rev.  Mr   Giassford^s . ",Paddy'b   Court-''  ship," tickled the fancy of the back  rows.

A scratch match  made up of, the following seniors  finished the evening. Whites���������S.  H. Riggs, A. McN-ill, T. H. Carey,  Simpson and H. White. Blacks���������  T. White, W.'Hayman, C.Grant,  W. Walker and \Voodhu?._ Whites  won by 15 to 6.  Enthusiasm   in   the   game   has  leached such a pitch that a  match  was   lately   arranged   between   the  " Baldheads "   and the  " Pompadours."     This   was played   off on  Saturday evening, the. teams lining  up as follows���������Baldheads: W.'John-.-  ston, T-.:BickIe.' C. Webber, A. Clark-  son   and Slavin.    Pompadours���������J.  IVPLeod,  W. ..-Woodh-up, P. Eoblin,  G.   McMillan  and  Buff   Cameron.  At half-time, the scure stood 14 to 6  in favour of the smooth-tops, and at  the end of the game this lead was  incteased by 5, making the score 19  to 6.    Although this game was not  strictly scientific, and though sometimes the. players treated the umpires'   whistles   with  contempt,   it  was an exceedingly good game, and  enjoyed by the spectators more than  any preceding one this season.  It is understood a senior league  game will be played next Friday.  GOOD SEAM OF ANTHRACITE .  DISCOVERED.  ,     A  fine seam of'good anthracite  coal has been discovered at Brown's-  River.*   The river at one place cuts  .through   the  coal   measures,   and  these weie some Lime ago examined  by Mr Matthews,'the inanager here..  One:seam of. '4>4eet:,ih-thickness, re-  sisted , a'1 attempts  at-burning in*  the open air which was tried^on tlie  spot as a test. Several sack fuls were  later brought in and "sent to Victoria  "for a thorough test,    The  result ��������� of  , this   was   that   the   coal   was   pronounced to be anthracite of the best  quality.     The  value  of   this find  cannot  be overestimatod,   it   being  the fiist coal of the kind found in  mining quantities on   the  Island,  and  from   the  appearance  of  the  seam, the pitch, &c, it is safe to assume that the deposit is an extensive one.

Dear Sir/���������In -youi  last issue I  notice *-an   article  referring to  the  t i  disappearance    of    poor   Allison  Dame  rumor is ever ready to enlarge or contort hearsays and many  of these rumors are now afloat.

In your last issue,you   -  say that Allison was lightly clad���������  .

As I was still  in evening dress, that which I had  worn on the night of my capture. I  -was glad enough to change. Before 1  threw off my clotnes I felt in all my  _>ockets and found my watch .and my  purse. Nothing was missing except a  small wallet which I always carried  and In which I had placed the letter  from the New York lawyers announcing my accession of fortune. No doubt  it had been removed for some evil purpose, part of the general scheme of  rt'raud.  I could find no fault with the mulatto  Lysander except that he was toe attentive. His care was that of a keeper  or jailer, tempered with the devotion  of a personal body servant. He shaved  me very skillfully, helped me into my  clean clothes, made my bed. tidied niy  cubing and brought me what I stood  most in need of. a hot and sufficient  meal.  Save for one ever haunting, torment-  ���������iug uncertainty. 1 could afford to bide  any time; I might possess ray soul in  ���������patience, fairly confident that the right  would come right in tlie end.  But what\of Frida? When should 1  ���������see her again? To wiu her and be  parted from her all within a few short  hours���������it was hard measure, indeed.  And how would she take my disappearance? Would she be grieved, an-  tnoyed.  suspicious���������what?  These last rather anxious speculations were broken in on by the appearance of Lysander, my. laconic  jailer, who brought me a cup of hot  coffee, with the brief words���������"Breakfast, boss."  He was presently followed by Colonel  "McQuahe and Lawford. They both  ���������'inquired most affectionally after my  health. Had I slept well. w*as the food  to my taste, the boy attentive?���������all as  pat as though they were my hosts and  we were the best of friends imaginable.  "Say now, Mr. Wood," went on Me  ���������Quahe. "I dew hope you'll change your  -decision of yesterday.    It was ill considered���������yes,   sir,  you  may   take  that  from me. ,JSee, we've no wish to' keep  you here below the whole voyage-  mayhap a tarnation long voyage���������but  we can't let you go on deck unless you  promise"��������� - '  "What?"  "Jest this. You must promise not to  'try and communicate with any hooker  that may-approach us, neither by waving, shouting, or otherwise signaling.  Also, never to speak to any soul on  board but our three selves; never to  signal or make signs to, the captain or  any man jack of the crew���������not that it,  would help you any, for they believe  you to be sick mentally, a lunatic  with disordered senses, brought to sea  for his healtb. We two are the doctors,  Lysander here'Is attendant and keeper.  Will you give us your word of honor  as a'gentleman"���������  "To gentlemen?" I Interjected, and  the irony was not lost on Lawford,  whose red face grew redder.  "As  man  to   man."    corrected   .McQuahe.      "I     calculate ���������  that's    good  ���������enough".    Aud don't raise our dander,  or you may hurt yourself."  "1 will promise." I said, '.'but conditionally. I (claim to withdraw from  it when'it suits me, when and how I  please."., *  ' ��������� "As how?"

Waal. sir. when that time  comes we shall take the gloves off, and  you will feel our fists." ��������� '   '  It ,was a splendid day on deck, bright  sun. ' a brisk air freshening ,00" the  sparkling sea.' We were 'under full  canvas���������she was a schooner yacht���������J  and doing a good ten knots, I imagined, down channel. -I judged the direction of our course b'y the position of  tlie sun.'the. movement of tbe shipping  and steamers going "both ways, yet  more by the blur* lino on either bow.  I have called our vessel a yacht, her  name, the Fleur-de-Lis. as 1 saw it  marked on the life belts, brass work  a_d fouipass box: a yacht, as was evident from her nninjis. the clear deck  fore and aft, the abundant brass w.ork,  the absence of hamper, tbe fairly  white sails. But she was^not particularly; shipshape, not as spick and span,  as scrupulously clean, as If her ownei  was on board; her crew were seemingly a scratch lot, not true yachtsmen,  aud the skipper, although alert and  sailorlike, was in a shabby suit, not  the regulation- blue cloth ,and brasi  buttons. * ������ .   ���������  Then they arranged* ine in my chair,  with quite tender solicitude. I admit,  but that was part of tlie play; gave  me books and a pipe and left me, but  not to myself., Two of the three were  always at my, elbow' or held me constantly,'in sight. Jwas close guarded,  but I hardly minded ft, 'for a .sort of  dreamy, luxurious lassitude overcame  me, the reaction, no doubt, from so  .many emotions, and I dozed on and off  pretty well all that day, Thursday. I  awoke next morning between G and 7,  feeling fresh and tit. and would gladly  have turned out to enjoy tho invigorating air on deck. But uo one came for  a long time, although I rang and called  and clapped my bauds. When, after  a time, Lysander appeared, he wore a  discontented, saturnine look on hia  dark, ugly face and went on with his  valeting sullenly and silently till be  left me. By and by Lawford came in.  'anxious and perturbed, as I could see  by his face aud manner.  "What's amiss. Lawford? Have your  sins' found you out? The hangman  might be aboaud. to say nothing of the  police."  "They're in sight anyway," he said  In a low whisper. Then, checking my  exclamation of delight, he added impressively. "H-sh, man, h-sh. or you'll  spoil all."  There was evidently a sudden change  in the situation.    Lawford had come,  no doubt, to temporize aud treat, and I  snatched at the opportunity, forestall-,  ing him in what he intended to say.  "Listen.   Lawford!     You've behaved  scurvily enough to, me. but I'll forgive  you and pay you ������1.000 to come over/  to my side.  "U-sh. man! Do be careful. It's as  much as your life is worth or mine if  McQuahe should hear you. You must  not be in a hurry. There may be some  mistake. She may not be really after  us."   ...  "She? What is it you mean? Go on,  in the name of goodness."  "A steam tug is in chase. We sighted  hor at daylight steering our course, and  we cannot'Shake her off. We have  shifted our helm twice; so has she.  Now McQuahe is bearing down on the  French coast, where, of course, nothing  Euglish can touch us."  "But 1 shall appeal to the French  authorities."  "Not if they keep you locked up  here. That's what McQuahe will do.  It's all he wants to do���������keep you out'  pf'the way while the rest of us fill our  pockets with your dollars on the other  side. It's all arranged and squared.

Here 'is' the peroration of  Hav's eulogy of Mclvinley:  There is not one of us but feels prouder  of his native land because the august insure of Washington presided over ita beginnings; no one but vows it a tenderer'  love because Lincoln poured out hrs blood  .ffor-'ii.: no one but must feel bis devotion  for his country renewed and kindled when  , he remembers hov/r McKinley loved, revered' and served it, 'showed 'in",his life  how a citizen should-live and in his last-  hour'taught us how a gentleman could  die. l* ,-' "  Blaine's   oration   on   Garfield   ended  with this famous passage:������  .-.s the end drew near his early craving'  'for the sea returned.

The  j.tree on which the berries grow is ever-  ' gfeeri, and the flowers grow  in dense  clusters.     "fhese   develop   Into   small  green aromatic berries, the size of black  pepper.    If allowed to ripen, they be-  , come pulpy and lose some of their pungency.     For commercial  purposes  the  berries are gathered when green, carefully dried  in the sun  and afterward  packed   in   bags   Uolding   1G0   to   180  pounds   and   shipped.     Pimento   trees  grow In many parts of tropical America,  but nowhere do they thrive as in  Jamaica.    The trees are never planted  by    man   and   receive   no   cultivation  worthy  of  the  name.     The seeds are  dropped by the birds, and tbe rains and  the'tropical sun do tbe rest.

A    Graduate    of    Wa-ilibrrnr    College  ana a Maid of. All Work.  Miss L. Elizabeth Moyer, 'a graduate  of Washburn college, is the heroine of  - the Rev.  Charles M. Sheldon's novel.  , "Born to   Serve." ' She  is a  pleasant  . faced, pleasant voiced, pleasant mannered girl in the early twenties. She  is the-daughter of a wealthy fanner of  , Brown' counts', Ivan. For five years  She has''worked as a domestic for families in Topeka, making a practical test  of the servant girl problem. Her conclusion is, "Both parties are to blame."  Miss Moyer says:  "Since I was old enough to have any  ,fixed purpose in' life I have had as my  motto, 'I will do the things that I can  do, the best of the things that need doing the ,most.' I wanted to make my  own way through college, although my  father told me that he would help me.  I would accept" no - help and finished  my course by my own exertions.  "We had no experience with servant  girls-on the farm, and I did not get in-,  MISS Ii. E.  MOYEK.  tcrcsted'in the subject until I attended  the academy in Hiawatha: ��������� There ,1  heard and read a great deal about this  vexing problem, but I - never; realized  -,what\*i great "subject it was until.I  came to the city.' I. was really shocked  to -learn-the necessity for reformation  most homes stand in'need of in this  ��������� particular. I have studied the problem  from tho girl's side in my five years  here,  and  during' that  time   I   have  ' talked with the employers at social  fuuetions and have heard their side.  Both "parties are greatly to blame.  . ' -I believe the servant girl problem  can only be solved by a Christian education. -The employers and servants  must be, taught to work together. The  problem furnishes a splendid field for  ' the energies of our young women. I  know several young girls with good  educations'who work as domestics because they like it. These are the kind  of girls who stay a long time in one  jilace and have no trouble with their  employers."���������Exchange.  Wnfthlnt; of Fine Lstee*.  In washing fine laces, says the Millinery Trade Keyiew, have a strip of  flannel on which to baste the luce,  using care to have every point basted  down smoothly. Make a strong suds  \yith white soap and water. Dissolve  one teaspoonful of borax in half a pint  of boiling water and add to it two  quarts of the suds. When this liquid is  tepid, lay the lace in it and let it soak  for ten hours or more. Then sop and  squeeze the flannel, but do the work  carefully and gently; then squeeze out  -'all the svids and drop tbe flannel i:i a  bowl of hot suds. Work gently in this  water. Now rinse in fresh water until  the. water looks clear. Finally starch  pnd squeeze as dry as possible.  Tack the flannel on a clean beard,  drawing it very tight In all direetioos.  See that every part of the lace lies  smooth and that all the meshes are.  open. When dry. cut the basring  threads and draw them out very gently. The lace may bo tiuied in the last  rinsing water if the dead white is not  liked. If the lace.is.point or any of. the  laces with raised- designs,  necessary to lift the raised  a small pointed instrument  it  will   be  work with  Tlie   Conrrtry   Wos-Uinf?   Girl.  The girl who as bookkeeper, clerk,  stenographer, milliner or teacher in her  .village home receives a weekly salary  of $7 is far better'off financially than  the girl in the'same occupations in the  city who gets $1~> a week.  ,:, In the first place the living expenses  are much smaller in the country than  in the city. One gets very much more  for her money in the way of home  comforts, the wear and tear of clothing is much less and as a rule the  work less harassing to the nerves,  since there are not the same hurry and  rush, keeping brain and nerves stretched to the tightest possible tension, so  that after the day's work is over one  is too tired to go in search of enjoyment.  Working long hours nt/muscie wearying, brain wearing, nerve rasping tasks  in shops, offices and counting rooms  causes tlie city-working girl to long for  rest above everything else and in itself  precludes the chances of her making  desirable outside acquaintances except  such as may be offered'through church  affiliations, and even these she is too  tired to improve.���������Philadelphia  er. ��������� '������������������ '  11  AI  K.

All the windows of- a house can be  utilized   for  plant   growing,   provided  onp is careful in selecting and adaots  che plant to the-window It is to gruw  in.( A list of plants adapted to the several exposures would be something like  this:" For eastern , windows, fuchsias.  begonias, calla, Chinese primroses. Primula obconica, azaleas, plumbago, ste-  vias, lobelias* and all kinds of bulbous  plants: for southern windows, geraniums, roses, chrysanthemums, carnations, lautanas. oxalis, oleanders, abu-  tilons, hibiscus, marguerites and most  of the plants having richly colored foliage; for western windows, bright"  leaved plants and a few of the more  "accommodating" plants like the geranium, provided the effect of too strong  sunshine is modified somowhal: for the  northern   windows,    ferns,   arucarias.  English ivies, palms, aspidistra, ficiisc*  and solignellas. Roman hyacinths, Pri-  6 inula obconica and .Chinese primroses  will often bloom well in sunless windows.���������Home and Flowers. ��������� ���������'. -   v  ' Face  Care. -^  "Few women realize," says a French  expert, "that the,"Secret of face care  is to treat each feature, separately.  American women -in-particular do not  scern^to understand..that there are'.as  many complexions, as there are figures  and that no one cosmetic can 4be good  for all faces nor for-all parts of the  face.'. Rarely is the skin of nose, and  cheek of the same quality, and what is  healing for one may injure the other.  'For example, the skin may be of good  quality all over the face' except on the  nose, .where too much oil is secreted.  Bathing the skin.with a soft sponge  dipped in borax "water Avill be of value,  while such ���������> treatment would be too  drj'ing for the rest of the face, or the  wrinkles around the eyes n������ay be treated with cocoa butter, which might be  harmful ��������� for nose and. cheek. ' Leave  all cosmetics entirely alone or understand their use," is her closing advice.  -   ForOne'D  "Tnrnoveri."    , ''  A dainty little bag to hold soiled  neckbands is made from two lawn  .handkerchiefs: .Choose,'two'alike having a pretty embroidered edge'aud pu1  them together ,to To >-nv the bag. -Those  with a rather narrow- embroidery  should be selected,,- and they arc  stitched together around 'three sides  just below the embroidery to form a  frill. Around the opening at the same  distance from the edge stitch a beading, through which ribbon of the desired width* is run. A narrow ribbon is  to be preferred. These can hang at the  side of a dressing table or bureau and  are both useful and ornamental. ���������'  Home   Cures   In  Rhyme.

For burns try borax  and  a wet bandag-e  too;  If blistered, then oil and dry flannel will  do.  For   children's 'convulsions   warm  are the rule;  With  castor  oil   dose,   too,  head cool.  Give   sirup   of   ipecac   when   croup   is   in  store:  For fainting stretch patient right out on  the floor.

If you are ' overtired���������"too tired to  sleep," as we sometimes say���������bathe  the neck and temples with hot water.  Bathe the back of the neck particularly. This seems to relax the muscles  and the veins that supply the brain  with blood. Lie down to sleep in peace,  for it will come surely. The same treatment will wonderfully refresh during  the day. A headache may often be relieved, sometimes cured, by hot applications to the back of. the neck.  Cnlce -'F.lou-.  Cake flour should always be sifted  twice���������first when it comes from the  barrel and before it i������ measured, next  when the baking powder or the soda  has-been added.

Then he  looked around the sitting room as if  taking a farewell of the fui;niture and  began: * , /.    ��������� .'  ' "Mrs. Bowser, I have had a good "offer  today for this properly, and I think 1  shajl'accept it. That is what I wish to  talk to you about this evening."  "Would you sell out to buy a place  elsewhere?" she asked.  '-* "Not a place in town.    If  1  sell.  1  Bhall move into the country.    I  have'  HE   GESTORED   AWAY   WITH  AT OXCE.*  found the chance of^my life.  There's  more clean money in  it than in a gold  mine."  ' "But you are no farmer. , I don't  think you know the difference between  timothy.and clover."   -  "Oh. you don't? Perhaps I don't know  n barn door from a bumblebees* .nest?  You are always ready for a fling of  some sort." '-."'-    -     .'      ;  "But how should you know .anything  about farming?" she protested.  "How, should ' I ' know' peas from  beans? However, 1 wasn't thinking "of  going into farming. I've got something  bettor than breaking my back at the  plow. Have you any idea what can be  done with a poultry farm of fifty  acres? Do you know that such a farm  would make a Rothschild of a man in  a few years, and with very little work  on his part? Mrs. Bowser,'a fortune  awaits us."  "That is good news, but let me hear  the details. You propose to buy a farm  of about fifty acres and raise chickens,  ducks, geese and turkeys?"  "That's it. and Standard Oil dividends won't be in it. It'll take most  oi   my  time to  count  up  the  profits.  Here's the idea: 1 start in with 1.1)00  he-nR. GOO ducks. 500 geese arid 200 turkeys. The natural increase at the end  of the year should give us 3.000 hens,  1.000 ducks. 1.000 geese and 730 turkeys. This is figuring out all losses.*  Meanwhile,we have sold at least 1.000  dozen eggs, and the geese have yielded 1H0 pounds of feathers. Can any  orange grove beat that? I shan't trust  to natural increase, however. 1 shall  have two incubators at work d:iy and  night. c Each machine will turn out  fiOO fowls per month, or 0.000 per year.  One-half of these will be sold as spring  chickens, arid you know what a thumping big price they bring. It's a Gol-  cencla. Mrs. Bowser���������it's a pointer for  Cripple Creek."  "Yon are sure of your figures?" she  risked as he got up in his excitement to  walk around.  "Do I ever make any mistakes? Do  yon think I would make a change of  this kind without being sure of my  figures?

You speri'.k of a fifty acre farm. If it is  good land and has decent buildings on  it. the price will be at' least $2,000. Did  you figure on that?'-' .-  "N-iio..   That isn't much, however."  "You have got to buy 1.000 hens. 500  ducks, 500 geese and 250 turkeys.  That's a total of 2.250. and they will  cost you at least $1,000. I suppose you  a I towns! for. this?"  "Are you trying to throw cold water  on  my project?" demanded Mr. Bowr,  ser, as his! face began to grow red.  "'"."Not at all.'- I'm  simply getting at  the difference between your outgo and"  your   income.     Your   two   incubators  will cost you at .least $300.   How much  did you allow for them?"  "I���������I don't remember."  . '-Now. you .; must have yards and  sheds for your poultry," continued Mrs.  Iiows;-i- in tones that reminded him of  a mortgage bearing 10 per cent inter'-"'  est.    "You can figure that the lumber  and carpenter work will cost another  thousand dollars. Your' 'poultry has  got to eat."  "Yes; the crumbs,from our table."  , "The' crumbs from our table would  keep one old hen'-on half rations.' Your  fowls have got to have corn and other  solid food: You may set'it down that  2,250 fowls will eat at least $600 worth  of food per year." ,,        . .,- '  "But I'm, going to raise my own corn,  of course."- > -    '       ,    ,  "Then you'll have to buy the seed for  twenty   acres 'and -hire  the   plowing,  planting and all other work."  "By thunder, woman, but can I never advance anything you won't'.oppose?" shouted Mr. Bowser as.he. gestured away with both hands at once. -  "1 am not opposing you,in this." she  quietly replied as she prepared to make  further figures. "All I want is for'you  to be sure how you are coining out." ���������,  "But I tell you there's a fortune In  it." "   ' '.   ,     .  "I shouldn't wonder. Now, about  the hired help. To take care of several thousand chicks and the'same number of old fowls you will need-a 'man  and a woman or a man and a boy. You  will have to board them on the premises.

These pills make new, rich, red blood  with every'dose, and impart new life  and  new vigor  to  the person    using  them.    Mr.   John  "McOermott,  "Bond  Head, Ont., Offers, strong proof of the  certain results obtained from the use  of Dr.'Williams'   Pink  Pills   in  cases  of  this kind.'    He    says:-    "A    few  years   ago   while   working   as   a   carpenter  in  Buffalo  I  got  wot.    I   did  not   think   it, worth   while    changing'  my clot������hes  at  the time,  but-I   soon  began   to .suffer  for  my. neglect.       I  awoke next morning with cramps and  pains  throughout    my    body.    I   was  unable to go to work and called in a  doctor, who left me some medicine.   1  used it faithfully for some time,  but  it^-did   not  help' me.    In  fact  1   was  growing  steadily  worse  and mad   become   so   reduced    in    flesh' /that    I  weighed only 138 pounds.   -As I was  not  able to  work I returned  to  my  home  at Bond Head.    Here I placed  myself under the.care of a docal doctor who said the trouble was neuralgia, Avhich  had    taken    a'.'thorough  hold upon^my entire system.    Misfortune seemed to "follow me .for" the doctor's treatment did not help-me, and  I think niy neighbors at least did not  believe I was goings to get, better.    T  had not.used more than three" boxes,  before T felt that the pills were help-'  ing me.    From that on T gained day  hy'day," and  after I hid  used   some  ten or "twelve" boxes,  I had  fully recovered    my    old-time    strength," and  have since been  able to  work at my  trade   as   a   carpenter    without    any-  trouble. '   I have   no  pains  or  aches,  and   1   now   weigh    156    pounds. -- I  think Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills  an invaluable medicine    and   -shall .always  have a good word-to say for them "  When the nerves arc unstrung, when  the blood is-poor or watery, or when  the system  is  out", or order,  Dr.  Williams'  Pink Pills\isHhc'. medicine "to  take.i   They cure  TOOL THAT ALMOST TALKS  ii*  from these 0causes". and make weak,,  despondent men and women bright,  active'and 'strong.

Yet its  CODrplit-:i;ed  Mechanism  Can  Be Tended  by a. Girl.  TIia most highly developed of machine tools is the automatic screw machine, ' and, like many another ' contrivance for'saving labor, irs home is  New England. It is,a development of  the ordinary steel working lathe, the  intermediate' step being 'the monitor  lathe, in which the various cutting  tools protrude from the side of a-steel  turret like thirteen inch guu������ from a  battleship turret. In the nouantomatic  screw machine-the turret is revolved  by the'operator so as to bring each tool  into play, just as the turret on the old  Monitor was revolved to bring one sun  after another into, action.' But in the  automatic machine the work is done  without human guidance.   , '  In making screws, nuts, bolts, studs  and other small  pieces that must  be  turned, drilled or threaded for watches,  clocks,   typewriters,   electrical ,instruments and other mechanisms  all the  operator   has   to   do   is   to   feed'   the  "stock"���������a  long,' thin rod of steel  or  brass���������to  the   machine.     The   feeding  mechanism carries, the rod slowly forward into the field of action.   The turret advances and puts its first tool 'at  work on the end of the rod. ,Whon this  tool has done its taskj'the turret withdraws it. turns and advances a second  tool  into  action, r   Each*,,-cutting -tool-  around the turret has it? distinct work  to perform���������one 'cuttin;:  a thread, ;an-  ofher shaping a head, .* :*other putting  on a point, another drilling a hole.-still  another putting on knurling.��������� The turret automatically brings .each of perhaps six 'tools.'.into action, and  when  the   work, is   finished''the .completed  screw   drops   into, a   pan','"while   the  "slock"-'is automatically  fed forward  to begin the" complex operation again  A stream of machine oil pours continuously on the work to carry away the  heat, and the 1 etle metal cuttings collect in a heap under the machine.  ' Hour after , hour/this' wonderful automaton goes thi-ougli its cycle of operations,  the turret  'clicking  every  moment as it brinys a new ,tool, forward.  Small brass pieces, on which but one  tool, cuts,  are dropped at ,thei rate of  four a second.    Large screws of complicated, desian   upon ,which- a   whole  turretful of, tools  must work are cut  from a *steel rod at the-rate of one or  two a minute.   So'perfectly are. these  screw machines constructed "that au unskilled workman can operate a row of  them.   AU he is required to do is to keer  them fed witl^ "stock."\ In .some shops,  girls tend the,machines.    ,   '    ���������      ,'   ���������  ~t  i  Offilvie    Oats  AAAAAA  Delicious  flavor.

PETITiOST.  CAUSE OF APPENDICITIS.  According to Dr H: C. Howard,a  well  known  American   physician,  changes in milling processes are responsible for   appendicitis.      The  doctor asserts that until the trade  demand for exceedingly white flour  changed   the methods of  grinding  wheat,   there was  no appendicitis.  To prove this assertion he points to  the fact that where coarse breads  are  ueed  the disease is unknown,  but as soon as fine bread stuffs are  introduced appendicitis domes along  as  a * sequence.     Dr Howard says  that prior to 1875, there was little  or  no' appendicitis  in  th9 United  States,   and  that in 25 years practice before that time he did not see  more than forty canes.   Experienced  millers say that fine flour is a  less  desirable flour than that made, by  the old method of  grinding grain,  '  but the trade demands it chiefly on  account    of    its    whiteness.       On  account   of  its indigestibility,  the  disarrangement   of    the   digestive  organs,of the  people eating  it has'  greatly increased.   The prime cause  of appendicitis is found in this disarrangement.    The doctor says that  the lack of phosphates in  the food  is vis:ble in   the people.     It is a  necessity. '    Children   suffer   from  conditions resulting from   a-lack of  material   to form their teeth.     A  proper tre-itment will  bring relief,-  and   the teeth   will begin   to grow.  They suffer because   the  ingenuity  of  men and the foolish demands of  tr dp have   resulted in taking from  t.eir food tlie material v. hich nature  The   follfnyjng   petition   to   the s  .School Trustees,  and their  answer  thereto,1 has   been- handed    us for  .publication:���������--     .  .  .To the School Trustees'of  the City  of Cumberland.''

The hopes aimed  at in  this   new  department of  work are such that must sooner or  later be.of benefit, to the town. .The  object aimed  at  is   twofold- first,  to enable the boys to realize 'more  fully their, influences, and responsibilities, as citizens of the town;  sec  ond, to help them to live higher lives  by giving them greater opportunity  to develop the  highest  that  is  in  them ;   this  by means  of  bringing  them in contact with  such occupations as tend to develop a de.-ire for  things  good    and   beautiful.
