Real beauty is rare. It belongs to perfect health.

Nervousness quickly destroys-beauty of face and form. The female  organism becomes deranged and there are sufferings almost  unbearable at the monthly periods. Too often women, come  to believe these mysterious pains and aches a part of their ex-  istense.

"Well. Ilbould say not/'^she answered
fiercely. '"What sort of., a'house do yon
think I -bave here. One of my young
men did bring a dog here, and,I told him
never to let me see a dog- come into this
house. That was-six month's ago, and X
ain't never seen a dog come -in here
since."     . *��
"The man and dog passed in here,"
said a young woman standing by the officer's side., ���      , -       ^
So they instigated their-search,, and., in
due time knocked at Elmer Stearns' door.
"There he is!" cried the girl, and to
Elmer's unbounded, astonishment ��� she
rushed Into the room and began to lavish
ca resses on Clover.
', "There is some-mistake here," be re
marked quietly.   '"May.I aik why you
manifest so much interest in my dog?"
f' "Your"dog!" cried the girl.   "I'd-like to
^ee you prove it." -    -
"Let the dog speak tot "herself,"'"he
(suggested mildly.. Clover^stood.-looking
from one to the other with sad eyes..   .
"Sit here, please," said Elmer, "and'I
will go quite^to the other side of'the
room.   -Now   we  will call  her,-together
'    "There'must be a "girl in it," said John
-v r   Locke as he took down his overcoat.    "I
never saw a fellow more anxious to get
' home nights thanryou ate."
"I do enjoy my evenings," laughed El-
[.}' y   mer Stearns,'"and11 have a very pleasant
[ .' companion."    Then    hef   walked ��� away
"whistling softly to himself. '���', ';
''      Elmer Stearns had many pleasant *ac-
..   quaintances in New Yorlc, but so far only
r    ongifriend.    Elmer wasf a quiet  fellow
rwhcT*stuck to his work while in the big
counting- room, but from the moment he
f "' left it" banished  alb thoughts of business
,   -and'gave himself up to the enjoyment,of
his books,, his, pipe and.his faithful friend,
' a pure bred pointer named (.Clover. \
He stopped for^her^nbw at a neighboring stable and*the two went on together
i   to his ,boaiding���place. _ Mrs. .Nubbs,  his
landlady, Vad\said' "No"'very vigorously
,   when''Elmer had"a��iked-if ,he might'keep
*   a   dog,   but- after  Clover   had   waltzed,1
i (   stood in the corner and  finally gone, to
her beseechingly and made her best bow,
all in response to Elmer^s, command, ."Go
and  beg her to   let you come,   Clover,"
,    her face, relaxed and she'said,  "I never
_ allow no dogs here, Mr. Stearns, so don't
>'ever'let me see that-animal go in that
door or over those stairs.!'-    " '
ny   ���  Elmer was not* obtuse (and understood
Ythe emphasis oriltbe word "see."
"   '    Ue easily taught Clover to slip by,-him
���   into  the  hall  and over  the  stairs  at  a
bound,, so   Mrs.   Nubbs   never  saw * her
come in, though she often shut the dining
_   room door in ordei that "she should not,
and ���she silently handed Elmer a brown
,  paper parcel every, uight which Was al-
1 ��� ways found to contain tidbite for the dog^
City life was new and stiange to them
>** both, and'though the, dog found interest
-   and _varietyv"in,the novel things she saw
from' tbe~gate"Of the bos stall where she
i    spen her days, and Elmer enjoyed doing
<  the work he was fitted  for,  both  felt a
.    great relaxation' wlfen the day was over
and they were together again.
If the man wished to read or write
without interruption, the dog sat motionless by his side, sometimes resting her
, head quietly on his knee to invite a caress. If the man was pensive and wished
to smoke and muse, the dog put her paws
on his knee and tested her head on his
shoulder, and thus they sat hour after
i    hour. ,    - t
Her personal beauty would have de-
, lighted any dog fancier. She had a coat
like satin, blown head penciled evenly
with white up the forehead, and on her
back was a well defined four-leaved
clover in brown, of which her brown tail
formed the stem. The rest- of her was
purest white. This odd marking explained her name.       t
With this sympathetic companionship
Elmer Stearns was content and rarely
felt lonely during the long winter evenings. He kept early bedtime and spread
a shawl on the foot of his-bed for Clov.er,
and the two friends slept as only healthy,
free hearted animals can.
The *winter passed, and one sloppy
April day Elmer called at the stable for
his dog. Mike, the groom, came forward
with sorrow pictured on his kind face.
"I don't know anything about it at all,
but the door must hev been unlocked.
I've been here every minute of the day
except just two" hours. I missed her
1 about 4 o'clock, and I walks over and
looks in the stall, and the door was a bit
of a crack open and uo dog insult*."--
Elmer went to his boaidmg house to
see if the dog had been there, then back
to the office and then to the police. Next
day he advertised, and for many days he
tried every possible means to trace the
missing dog and finally decided she was
stolen and beyond his reach.
The summer days dragged on, and the
heat of the city became almost intolerable. Elmer had piomi��.ed himself a vacation in the mountains, but hunting
without Clover would be sorry -sport.
However, the weeks set apart for him on
the schedule of the gieat business house
were at hand, and he -was -wondering
moodily what he sbould'-do with them as
he walked to his.boarding house one sultry August day.
As he neared the house he started suddenly, for. on the'steps sat;a. brown and
white dog,: gazing wistfully at. .him.
Gaining his room, he took the.great'dog
bodilyin his arms and hugged her tight,
and they rolled and frolicked together on
the dusty carpet.
So Clover and her master took a two
weeks' hunting trip, and'they were short
and happy weeks.' They; returned- together rather reluctan'tly';'and mounting
the dingy^ stairway to the stuffy city
room began to unpack.
As they were thus occupied there came
a sharp ring at the doorbell, -which..was.
answered by Mrs. Nubbs. She drew
herself up stiffly when she:-faced a blue
coated officer.
"Does any of your boarders keep a
dog?" he queried.
and see ,what she will do."
"Clover,   come   here,"   the'*man
quietly. , '   ',
"Come, Lucky, Lucky," pleaded the
woman. f
1 Cloye�� stood with, her tail .and earn
dropping. The woman was nearer."" In
passing her Clover stooped .and allowed
the girl to stroke her and even licked
her cheek. But tlie dog's eyes were on
Elmer, and as soon'-as posible<she broke
away and came to him. , ( , ��� - r.
, ,"You see," cried the girl, "she came to
me first 'your,own proof is against you.
Let us go, officer.   Come, Lucky."
And placing her hand on Clover's, collar she led her out of the room and down
the stairs. Elmer heard a,cab door slam
and' sat down wearily, wondering what
to do. //"���", *- >.        *
He decided to wait quietly for:the dog's
return and watched' eagerly, each, night
for it.'1 Two^weeks went by,'when John
Locke invited' him to spend 'the evening
at his home.    "It's a meeting of a little
informal card club," he explained, "without constitution or bylaws. 'The'host can
invite one friend, and a sceond invitation
.makes-youia member."   *    '
~   Elmer's' evenings  were  long now; so,'
though'he disliked cards, he'went.
-   He met 15 pleasant young people and
'among them Miss Esther Daly.    He'a-ec-
ognized her"instantly*' as the young Iady)
who had'claimed his dog, but she show-ed..
no sign of recognition. * ',     '���     - t
Before the evening ,was over he was
-head over heels in love. .When a man
reaches the age of 301 without a love af-,
fair, he lis'apt to make a short cut of it.
Elmer Stearns 'received��� an invitation,
from' the nest hostess and was thus" installed a member of the Informal club.'
rA"t-the weekly meetings he met,Esther,
and soon they were on excellent terms. ''
.Atolast it was'her turn to'entertain^the
club and there he met Clovers -The dog
was' overjoyed and plainly ��� showed -her
pleasure. Esther was surprised and said
it was very unusual for her to show -any
interest in a stranger.- As for Elmer, he
snubbed Clover" unmercifully in spite of
-her joyful whines and manifestations of
love for him.    . .   ,
Clover thought 'it'over sadly as the
���gardener tied her rope that night, and she
decided on a desperate course. She knew
the way quite weJ.->now to her old master, though she had made it before in the
daytime. The rope was a new thing
since she had gone home before, and she
resented it. ' ���    .
She set her firm teeth in it and managed to -tear away a few shreds, but it
was a big rope and she tore her mouth
more than she did the rope. Then she
strained her collar*and the metal edge
cut her neck, but she strained hard and
it came over her head with a jerk and
she was free.
' Elmer was' awakened by a scratch oa
the front door and^ran down stairs with-
but waiting for clothes. Clover slipped
in up stairs in her old way and soon b'dt:li
weie asleep.
He telephoned Esther in the morning
that-he had.fqund Lucky and Would bring
her back that evening. Clover's tail
hung lower and lower as she found herself near her former home���for home it
had never become" to her���but Elmer
urged her on.
"How strange, that she should have
come to your rooms," said Esther, "and
last night she seemed to be glad to see
you. Have you some mysterious power
over dogsv Or"���and then came the gleam
of recognition; Elmer had always feared���
"yes," she said breathlessly, "you are
the man.1'
He answered by calling Clover to him
and putting her through many, .cleyer.
tricks^ Then he told her frankly all
about Clover, while the dog sat by whining dolefully and keeping on the side of
his master farthest from Esther.
The girl's cheeks burned hot at tha
close of the recital. "Uncle Harry gave
him fo me on the date you lost him. my
twentieth birthday. I supposed he bought
him, but'he must have picked him up. on
the street. Whatever shall l do to make
it-up to you?"
"There is one way that would "more

How a Tramp's Heart.
"   Was Touched by
....BY W.   R.   ROSE....
'       *
' The tramp sank his spade deep in ythe
earth, and as he drew it up and'flung the
'dark, rich eaith aside voices came to him
through the nearby window. He Tstraight-
ened up and listened for a moment; His
mouth slightly parted; his lips half closed.,
He crept nearer"the window and leaned"
on the 'spade. , For fully ten minutes he
scarcely moved. --, A ��� datk "scowl "crossed-
his face and lingered there. .     '.j
The tramp 'was tatteied and-torn, and
his face was infl.-tmedi and his eyesjwere
bleary,.-but therer was. still a heart1 ,be-
Jneath his soiled aiid ragged coat, and that
heait had been won by kindness.
'   When he came limping' up to the farm-house. that( morning,   the   farmer   had
looked at him askance, and the farmer's
dog had blinked up, at',1ns master as if
awaiting the word to hustle'the stranger
'down the lane.'    ���. '* *'--' --'       -    -���--"���
And then) the* farmer's' wife had come
to the door, a gentle faced woman with a^
soft voice,i,and she listened to  his story
and bi ought him bread and meat and told
,' hnn to lest in the shade of the apple tree.,
And somehow the gentle faced woman reminded   him 'of  the ymotlier  whose   precepts he had disregaided and whose heart
he had broken, and such a lump had risen*
in his throat that for a time he found it
quite  impossible to' eift.^   And  when he
finally disposed of^the food'and diank a
cup of water from the cool depths of the,
ancient well he wandered downtto a.little,
brook that flo\ved*rin the ravinertb,a.t skirted ,the orchard^ and bathed bis_.face arid
hands and straightened his tangled hair.^
Then-he ,came, back-"to  the'-house  and,
rapjpmg' at   (he- door., asked'' the   gentle
faced   woman if  she' had *any   work  he
could,do.f .    r    Y ,���*   -" .   o   �� S   .     .-"   -"���
"Art still* here?"  she asked in a soft
vo'iee.���  "I thought th��e had gone>'f ���_. ^
"I'm still heie," said the tramp, as he
diew his..tatteied hat from his head. "I
hSve a,chionic way of we.armg -ou^my
welcome. But if you have any work to
do that will enable me to pay,{or/tthe./food
yo'tf gave nie, I'm in the humor'to do it."
She looked at him a little doubtfully
aud rea.jl.the seciet of his dowufall in his
fiery visage and softly sighsd.  i   ��   .���"������
���'What I gave thee, I 'gave willingly,"
6he said, " atuj. without thought of recompense. _ But if, thee is leally in- e-araest
about desiring work.; thee can.take the
spade that leans against the well box
yonder and spade up my flower bed here."
The tramp leplaccd his hat and found
to-- spada and set to woik.       ,   -,- v
And while he was'working*he heard the
sound of wheels, and looking through the
Tines at the house corner saw a horse and

not a gentleman. �����-*        " ���. --f.y.
Presently the farmer, busy in the barn,
was summoned to the house by -his wife's

the 'tramp heard the loud -voices-'"withim

Way Hot Accommodate tlie Consumer T���A Hint' From Forel-rnen.    .
A few weeks ago -.there came to, my
place two bright young men from Bel-
. glum, graduates from a university,
who had- been traveling over our states
for six months visiting our transportation Industries. They had money and
'leisure and intended to locate here,-and
they had decided that tbe fruit industry offered the greatest Inducement of
anything tbey bad discovered In America. They criticised some of our methods.   They said to me:
"One trouble Is you place your stuff
In the market at any place. at all,
| whether It Is overloaded or not, nnd
then, too, you put it In a barrel. If I
.want to buy an apple, I buy two for
5 or three for 10 cents. I pay $10 a
barrel at that rate, but I can buy" the
whole barrel at $1.75 to $2.   But if you
' are staying at a hotel yon don't bave
any room for that much.    You force
' a family to buy a barrel, and the way
{they have of living in flats aud all that
isort'of thing you have no place to put
J them  unless they-'are, put  under tbe
bed,' and that Is not a good place to.,
,  put apples. .' And then  If you buy a
small  quantity you  pay - an extrava-
��� gant price."   < < -   -
It seems to me the one great business
point in our fruit market today Is the
1 lack of putting the fruit'up, properly,
that-our-peach package of five-eighth
or one-half bushel is pretty large for
family consumption, therefore they are
dumped-/oil the .stands. A member of '
the family goes and buys a quart or
, two aud thinks be has done, his duty.
We curtail the consumption of our
fruits when'we put tbem In a'; basket
so large'that it has to be broken. We
may also curtail It. by-using too small
a basket. The question to be thought
out and planned^out is thelargest pos-
.' sible limit we caussell our product ions.
I have spoken to ybu-about-the>neces-r-
v8ity ot growing line fruit.   There-Is-not
.-.  going to be any" room. In-a little >wr bile
for the man.who grows'Inferior fruit
nor for the man who packs fruit dis- :
honestly or carelessly, says, J. H. Hale
of Connecticut. Y
Chans-ins; the Color of-FloweM.y
- A foreign Investigator tells of using .
oalum. t hydrochloric' acid, andlcaustic
.���   potash to change-the color of flowers. ,
.Watery extracts were made of various -
red., purple and lilac colored  flowers
/and dilute-solutions of tlie chemicals
mentioned added. The,alum changed
the lilac to. blue and the rose color to
lilac. Hydrochloric acid changed the
lilac and the light red to a copper; red.
and in some cases the lilac was changed to green or.brown. Potash transformed the rose .and lilac to green or
yellow. Similar results were obtained
wheu cut flowers were placed in solution's of the above or by watering with
them plants grown in pots.

HaleMia or Silver Bell Tree.'
I   Halesia tetraptera, popularly known
;as snowdrop or silver bell tree, so call-
led' because of the resemblance of Its
I flowers to the ordinary snowdrop,  Is
j ��he. of 'our   prettiest   shrubs   or   low
��� growing trees for large lawns or parks.
I It is of a low spreading habit, blos-
'jscming profusely In April or May.
'���', Its pure white pendent flowers are
about five-eighths of an inch in length
and   hang  in  clusters  on  last year's
growth.   The leaves are about the size
of   those   of   the   syringa,   of  a   fine
healthy    color    without   gloss,    says

Lycium chinense (Chinese Matrimony vine) Is a graceful climbing shrub
which is very useful for covering rocks,
stumps of trees or anything else where
a tall growing vine is not required.
Neither the leaves nor flowers are particularly ornamental, but tbe graceful
habit of tbe plant commends it, together with the fact that in the autumn
the bright scarlet fruit .gives it a verj
attractive appearance. There Is m variety, macrocarpum, which Is an Improvement on the ordinary form In
that the fruit Is larger and hence more

The civil      list  amounts  to  ������385,-  ,_   000.    This sum is divided as follows:  Expenses      of     the household,   ������72,-  500.  salaries   , of .tlie household  and  retired     allowances,  ������131,260;  royal  bounty     alms       and  special  services,  '������13,200;      unappropriated,     ������S,040;  the monarch's  privy purse,   ������60,000.  When-we turn to the details of this  expenditure we find that a great portion   of  it     goes  to  provide  sinecure  offices for a large number of members  cf the aristocracy of both sexes. Let  us take a few  items,  says Reynold's  Newspaper.     First  there   is   the   kitchen,   which   is   managed  by  what   is  known  as   the board  of green cloth,'  the steward  of  which   is the Earl,, of  Pembroke,   whose   salary   out   of  the  Taxes is ������2,000.

Then  there is a  treasurer,0 at present  vacant, to whose office another"������904 at-������  laches.     All   these  sinecures , are   .in  the gift   of  the   Government  of   , the,  " day.     Of  course there are also    connected  with  this   kitchen  department  cooks      and     scullions- and  a   "iirst  .gentleman porter,"'" a  "corner of the  verge"1���������an ancient but obsolete office  for holding inquests  on people   "who  die suddenly '*   or accidentally in the  royal palaces���������and other quaint survivals.   "       '  '  Out of the public purse again come,  such court officials as  German -secre-  . tary,   Indian  munshi  and'Indian  attendants,      French readers,  Highland  attendants,   .  grooms      in    ' waiting,  grooms      of*    the    privy      chamber,  * grooms of the great chamber, marine  painter,   sculptor,   laureate," pages''of  the back      stairs,  pages of the - pre-  'sence,      state      pages,     bargemaster,  keeper      of     the   swans,   sergeant-alarms,   gentleman-at-arms,   yeomen   of  the"guard,'master of theVbuckhounds,  lord    great     chamberlain',' hereditary  grand  falconer,   whiRpers"  in, ---gentlemen ushers, daily waiters, gentlemen  ushers   of   privy   chamber,   gentlemen  ���������ushers : quarterly .waiters, - maste"r   "of  the ceremonies,  master of, the1-* music,  mistress  of the robes,  ladies" of    the  bedchamber,   extra   bedchamber    women,  maids  of  honor,   groom  of the  robes and many other highly salaried  offices  ranging ..from   ������2,000  a   year  downward.

''  DISPUTES CURRENT OVER FACT  "Late Premier of Tasmania.  The Hon. N.  E. Lewis, lately ,Pre-f  xnier  of Tasmania,  was the youngest'  of  Australian  Premiers.     He  is now  a member .    of tlie Federal  Cabinet,  but   without  portfolio,   because     the  constitution  only  provides  for Lseven  Ministers,   and Mr.. Barton was    not  able to  select      them  on state lines.  Hence Tasmania has had to give way  to Victoria,     which     has two representatives in the  Cabinet instead   of  one, a difficulty that has been>-solved  by  inviting Mr.   Lewis   to  its   Councils   as  an  honorary  member.     Born  at Hobart in 1858,  he has  the   advantages     of a colonial training    as  well  as the advantages of an    English   university   career,   a  distinction  he shares with no other member     of  the Ministry.'     He was  called to the  English bar in 1SS3.    Returning    to  Tasmania, he was admitted a barrister,   and      in"     1SS6  was elected for  Richmond.     Six   year's* later lie     became   Attorney-General   in  the    Dob-  son Ministry,  and when it retired he  acted  as  leader      of  the  Opposition.  He  was   one  of  the Tasmanian delegates     to      the  Federal' Convention,  which     met id 1S97,   and again   ,in  1898.    In the following year he succeeded  Sir  Edward Braddon  as"Pre-  mier,  a post; he still retained at the  commencement  of  this   year.  K..11.   IlAlJ.J.i.'  to'progress.

It'is the bandit of commerce-,  the vampire' of trade/ bowclless and  rapacious.   Y t v~  The,trust j is a veritable daughter  of the horse leech and, like hell and  the ' grave; , can never be satisfied.

A writer in the Pall Mall Gazette  has been-making a collection of common misquotations. The list is a  long one, and to a large number of  people who pride themselves on their  stock of quotations will come as  something of a shock. In some cases  the misquotation .seems preferable to  ,the correct rendering. The following are some of the most common  (the misquotation is given first as  follows:) -   ���������  "Charity covereth a multitude of  sins," for "Charity shall cover the  multitude  of sins."  "A little knowledge is a dangerous  thing,"  for   "A little learning  is     a  dangerous  thing." >  "Make assurance doubly sure," for  "Make   assurance   double   sure."

'   .  Many, years have elapsed since, in  a'shower of rain worthy of the district, r we descended from the Sty-  head Pass and gained the welcome  shelter of the Ritson roof-tree. It  was then we learned ^that we were  gazing on "the smallest church in  England;',' also that-three years'  contributions to the collecting-bag  amounted to less than two shillings  in all, and we were filled with awe.-  The same night the subject cropped  up at table d'hote. v The iassertion>  was mride and promptly contradicted  ���������the smallest .church was undoubtedly-' in the Isle of Wight. That  night the assertion was *again made,  and like a lightning flash came the ,  contradiction���������the smallest church'in  England was undoubtedly in Sussex.  Had we , had a month to "spare we  would 'have remained at, Wastdale  Head and made our collection at  ease. _ ' ,'.  Now the chijrch at)Wastdale Head  is said torbe 42 feet long;by-16-feet  wide,   which  gives *an,rare^,'iOf     672  square feet,, a sitting .accommodation  ���������for.^fifty  or'sixty persons,   and' ( the  lie .to  those' who  insist' on", it' being.  the smallest church .in-the. Kingdom,  for Lulfington  Church, -in- Sussex,  is  easily - smaller,   as   its -total '/area   of  256  square feet ,and its, accommodation for thirty .people at' the utmost,  xogether    "with  a very  large, pulpit,  prpves.     Lullington,  it may be mentioned, was once owned by Sir Philip  Sidney, who was lord of the manor,  and the village is mentioned in   the  "Doomsday      Book;"     the -   church,  moreover,   is really  the  chancel of a  much      larger   building   destroyed   in  the"   , Cromwelliari  era.     A   stranger*  who formed one of a congregation of  twelve, wlio listened to a diminutive"  preacher      deliver1" "a  sermon;   having  taken "  as   his   text   the   thirty-fifth  verse  (consisting of  two  words)     pi  the" eleventh    chapter   of  St.   John's*  Gospel,,   '  remarked     on   leaving"1 the  building    . that    it1    was athe  tiniest,  church,    the      shortest  parson,     the0"  briefest text,   and  the i smallest , collection   (eighteen * pence),  "that     had  ever, come within his experience,  but  then he was never at -Ventnor .before  the' Church of St.  Lawrence was restored.  ' Before the late Lord Yarborough  added ten feet to the chancel, a1 new,  porch, and a bell-turret to this  building, the* Isle of Wight . edifice  was undoubtedly .'the -most diminutive of. our churches, and is often  said to be .the smallest to this ds������y,  by loyal but untruthful natives, but  the restoration added 120 t square  feet to its area, which now amounts  to '360 square feet, or 104 square  feet more than the Sussex church,  and 30 square feet less than the  "srhallest" church that stands on a  hillside, 400 feet above sea level,  overlooking .the Bristol Channel at  Culbono, near 'Porlock in Somersetshire.  We had  imagined   that ,we had  arrived    at   the  real   and   only   "smallest"  church  when  we  added Lullington   to    our   collection,   but  a    paragraph  in  The  Pall  Mall  Gazette    regarding the Devonshire home of the  new  Governor   of New  Guinea elicited      the      statement   that   Brent-tor  owns   the   smallest   church,   not   only  in England, but in Christendom, and  our  he.trts  sank  within  us  until    we  discovered      that      the        Tavistock  church,      which is said to have been  built by a merchant yvho,   overtaken  by a storm at sea, vowed to erect   a  church on the first  point of land -he  saw,  was  37 feet 1 y  14i- feet., which  gives  an   area  of  030-V  feet;  not until we discovered that the merchant,  though he did his best, had failed to  usurp   Lullington   of  the   right  to   be  regarded       as       the   smallest   of   the  small,;    did we with  a sigh of .-relief  breathe   freelyy again.     As   Brent-tor  has  an altitude of  1,100 feet,   which  made it      come in useful in days    of  yore      as   a  landmark  for  sailormen  entering   Plymouth   Sound,   and     as  the  Church      of StYMichael de Rupe  stands near the: summit, it can afford  to.     smile���������to      laugh  would  be  unchurch-like���������at      the      pretension     of  Paddlesworth in claiming the  "highest ground."  The lath and plaster church at  Hazeleigh, Essex, with its ten pews  only; the parish, church of Frinton,  in the same county���������-it was at Frinton that Captain Bushell, the wreck-  searcher, and Cornelius de Tulbury,  "who could poison with impunity,"  resided���������gave us a severe fright lest  they should be more diminutive than  our Lullington edifice, and re-open  the oft-discussed question; but although no actual figures are forthcoming, we believe they are no smaller than the churches at Wotton, near  Leith Hill, and Warlingham, in the  neighborhood of Croydon, both of  which, edifices are larger than the  Sussex church.  A small church that has not many  champions is that of St. Peter's,  Cambridge, which is situated on the  Castle Rise. As its length is 25  feet and its breadth 16 feet, with re  gard" to ' area it comes in order ' of  minuteness just after' the church of  St.  Lawrence land ' Culbone. church.  Of, the parish churches of Grove,  in the district of LeightorT Buzzard;,  of Chilcombe, 'jn D.orset, and Sutton  Bonnington, - Leicestershire^ except  that' their '" size is" diminutive",' we<  know but- little.;. The two first named parishes, we learn, contain '.but  twenty inhabitant*/ apiece, and of  the latter church it-is said that if  t-he.-.officiat ing. clergy men is anything  over "ihe 'average height, he runs-, a  good chance of striking ,his head  against the arch above the pulpit. .  This article would be incomplete if  we failed, to nic������tion.rthat the parish  church of Cranfoi-d is saidJ to be1 the  'smallest- church in Middlesex, or that  Nicholaston .parish, church," near Ox-  wich *!3>ay, Glamorgan, though , its"  length -��������� is but 47 feet, cost between  ������6,000 and ,������7,000 to restore, ��������� and  is nbw ��������� the - most. elaborate church,  for it's size���������it will accommodate a  congregation of fifty���������in the principality.

Y ��������� . ��������� . ^-^/i  ".Along these, miles'of/corridors are  stacked - hundreds of thousands , of  bottles of wine,1 undergoing 'the processes of refining and; maturing; and  "a walk along' ' 'them ' may be as  fraught with danger as to cross the  line ''of fire in a ba"ttleY'for at any  moment a bottle'.may burst and hurl  its fragments at you with something  of the force of shrapnel.  Into these vaults , hundreds ol  workmen disappear at 6 o'clock every  'morning, only to emerge into the upper air l2'hcours later. Unfortunately, the conditions that are best for  the wine are almost, as uncomfort-  ablo as one ��������� could conceive for, ( the  human population of the vaults!" Allt  the1 year , round, whether in the  .height of summer or ,,the depth of  winter, a uniform , temperature of -45  degrees must be -maintained; and the  air is so saturated with moisture  that it runs" in rivulets down the  walls,' and the screens which separate the cellars are heavy with it.  In the' damp, dark corridors behind these screens are men whose sole  duty it is to run the thousands of  bottles, one by one, and give them  a slight .' hake, so as to dislodge any  sediment that has formed; and this  process, probably the most monotonous and under the conditions of cold,  moisture Y' and darkness,, the. most  dreary that falls to the lot of working man, is repeated hour after hour  and day after day for a whole lifetime.  An expert worker will turn as  many as 60 bottles a minute and  maintain this rate for ten hours a  day, handling 36,000 ' bottles in a  day's work. Is it any wonder that  after years of monotonous drudgery  these men . develop all kinds of  strange moods and fancies? They  become gloomy and taciturn, and  get the strangest ideas into their  heads. Some of them persist that  the vaults are haunted, and profess  to see C3*es glaring at them -from obscure corners and figures flitting past  them���������possibly the eyes of rhen who  have turned bottles before them, and  cannot .refrain from revisiting the  haunts of their earthly days.  But naturally all the work in these  underground worlds., of Bacchus is  not of this lugubrious description,  for. here a-c-small army of men; and  girls are engaged in cooking/ putting on the tinfoil which makes the  bottles so pleasing io the eye, and  labeling.  The corking is done at the.almost  incredible  rate   of a hundred bottles  an hour.    The bottles are handed in  rapid      succession    by a boy to the  "disgorger," '    who   with  marvellous  dexterity  whisks   out  the  corks,   discharging      any     sediment  that  may  have  collected,      fills   them  up   with  champagne,   and passes  them  on   to  the coi-ker.     The       corking has    for  many years' been done by machinery,  the machine   seizing  the  cork,    compressing it to the proper  size,-     and  pushing     it     into '   the neck "of, the  bottle.     The bottles  are then 'rea'dy  for the girls, who put on the finish-  fng  touches   with   tinfoil   and  labels.  As may      be expected,  these     processes,   especially that  of disgorging,  are not free from danger, for at this  stage a bottle of champagne may be  as risky a thing to handle as  a live  bomb,   and      accidents  more  or  less  .

Dear Sirs,���I penned a few'lines to
you some time ago,���as a member of
the -temperance   cause,   I  wrote     for
information:  at   that   time I had    in
my mind  ii\. ads  whose son was    a
great cause of anxiety and trouble on
, account  of  his ���   drunken habits.      I
strongly urg^d the friends to try the
remedy I saw advertised in the   Toronto   G-lobe.   They  did  so.   It    was
the Samaria  Remedy     that  was  ad-
'"ninis.tered ar.d I am pleased x.o    inform   -;he. company the medicine was
helpful;   the     young     man     has  no I
drank a drop since, breaking off from
old companions,   and  special prayers
on his   behalf,   all  aided in breaking
the chains.
At the last meeting of the W. C.
T. U. here, I introduced your medicine for the cure of the liquor habit,
and a resolution was passed, "That
inasmuch as it is the aim of this organisation to help the poor inebriate,
we should recommend this remedy in
homes -where persons are addicted to
the use of intoxicating liquors."
Now, sirs, wishing you a, successful
career in your noble work, and feeling that assistance can be given in
the precincts of home, by the hand of
mother : or wife, trusting* God may
open up useful avenues for. your labors, Yours very'respectfully,
On behalf of Paisley W.'C.'T. U. .

.there is/a marked decrease noticeable
in the /number' 'of -cases - of Bright's
Disease1 reported. This, 'fact is l un-.
doubtedly due to^ the wide use ,. of
Dodd's Kidney Pills in the,.earlier
of-Kidney Disease. . ~
s '"disease    at-j one time- was
the* cause of a" large .proportion of
,the deaths in this province. It was
considered incurable and until Dodd's
Kidney Pills were introduced in- was
incurable. Not so, however, now.
Dodd's Kidney Pills have almost
wiped the disease out. -Nor is Diabetes heard of now -to any great extent.
, The most common form by which
Kidney Disease ���manifests' itself is
Backache, and here Dodd's Kidney
Pilis are doing their 'most'active
work. They are recognized as the
surest and quickest cure for 4 Backache ever invented. They work on
the sound principle of going to - the
root Lof tho trouble���the kidneys���
wherein thoy differ from all other
backache medicines except imitations
of Dodd's Kidney Pills. They do
more than merely relieve. They positively ��� and permanently cure, as
thousands of people are ready to testify.
O. Dipnne, a well-known resident
of Matano, says, -'Dodd's Kidney
Pills -have made a grand success1 in
curing me of Backache, and I recommend everybody to keep them in the
house. They are a wonder as a remedy for Backache and Disease of the

years her   twelve-year-old    daughter,
Mamie, has been a sufferer fi om rheumatism    combined   with   that      other
terrible aaiiction���St.   Vitus'     dance.

We  would not be surprised that a hatpin, corset,1 glove-fastenei, etc.",  should be invented bv women, but  when we learn that such inventions  as telescopes, making marble from  limestone and dams and reservoirs,  are evolved, people began to be  interested.  In Canada, also, women are becoming in crested in inventions as  is evidenced by the large number  of women applicants seeking patents :through Messrs Marion ���������;<&.:  Marion, of Montreal. ���������  ^Dliijsn^iiiir A^e-  EgaEi-it  HEADQUARTERS FOR  .
