Stay   Poiatblr   Revolutionize  the  Iron In*  duntry In Canada��������� Report of tho  Cauaiilau Couunig.lQu. *  Rarely has a report of greater public interest or importance been issued bv any department of the Federal (Government than that which  -was sent out recently by the mines  branch of the Department of the Interior. Ihe report in question contains the results of the investigation  made by the Haanel Commission into  tho different eicctrothermic processes  Jor the smelting of iron ores and the  -linking of steel in operation in  Europe. The conclusions of the commissioners are tho result, of careful,  exhaustive inquiries.  In addition to the report on the  Reciting--of iron ores and the making of steel in Europe, there is a  special report on the Marcus Ruthen-  burg process of electric smelting of  magnetite, in which demonstrations  were given at Lockport, N.Y.; likewise a series of important papers on  the electro-metallurgy 0f steel , and  iron by Henri Harmet, Gustavo Gui  and Capt. Ernest Stassano, and of  copper by M. Ch. Vattier. The whole  volume, consisting of 233 pages, is  enriched and illustrated by. many  handsome plates and drawings.  The commission sent from Canada  consisted of Dr. Haanel, Superintendent of Mines for Canada; Mr. Brown  of Peterboro, electrician; Mr. Eric  Nystrom, M. E., Ottawa, draftsman,  and Mr. Thomas Cote, Montreal, secretary. In England the services of  Mr. F. W. Harbord,, consulting metallurgist and analytical chemist to  the Indian-Government and the Royal Engineering College, were engaged  as metallurgist oL the .Commission.  Electric smelting plants were then  visited in the order named at the  following places: Gysinge and Kort-  fors, Sweden; La pras-, France; Tur-  , in, Italy, and Livet, France.  Lower Cost of .Steel.  - The conclusions arrived at by the  metallurgist, Mr. Harbord, as a' result of his investigation into the met--  allurgy of the electric production of  steel and the electric production of  iron or������, are as follows:  (1) Steel equal in all .respects to  -ihe best Sheflield crucible,steel   can  '" "oo produced, either by the Kjellin,  Heroult or Keller processes, at a;cost  considerably less than the ' cost of  producing a high-class crucible steel.  (2) At present structural steel, to  compete  with  Siemens    or  Bessemer  -���������8te^-l,wcarmat_be_scojio^^  ed in the electric furnaces, and such  furnaces can be used commercially  for the production of only very high-  class steel for special purposes.  03) Speak ing generally, the reactions in tlie electric smelting furnaces, as regards the reduction and  combination of iron with silicon, sulphur, phosphorus and manganese, aro  similar to those taking place in the  blast furnace. By altering the burden  and regulating the temperature, by  varying the electric current, any  grade of iron, grey or white, can be;  obtained, and tho changes from one  grade to another is effective more rapidly than in a blast furnace.  VI? Iiou r-otsslUJlltl-u.  (���������*)' Grey pig iron, suitable In all  respects for acid steel manufacture,  either by Bessemer or Siemens processes, can bo produced in tbe electric furnace.  (5) Grey pig iron, suitable for  foundry purposes, can be readily  produced.  <16) Pig Iron, low in silicon and  sulphur, suitablo either for the basic Beswomer or tho basic Siemens  lirocoas, can bo produced, provided  that the ore uiixturo contains oxide  of mangaiK'NO, and that a basic slag  is maintained by suitable additions  of limo.  (7) It has been experimentally demonstrated, but from general consid-  erationa Micro is ovory reason to bo*  ll'ovo that pig iron low In silicon  and sulphur can, bo produced, oven In  the abmineo ot manganeso oxide in  tho iron mixture, provklod a fluid  and basic King bo maintained,  (8) Pig Iron can bo produced on a  commercial scale to compote with the  blast furnace only wjjen -lectric cnor-  gry is vory cheap anil fuel very doar,  (:)n the IimhIs taknn In this report  ���������with oil-ride energy dt $1U per oloo*  trlcal horse-power year, and coke at  97 per ton, the coat of production io  approximately the same as tho cost  nf producing pig iron ia, a modern  blast furnace.  Condition! of Suootii,  (0) Under ordinary conditions;  where blast furnaces aro an established Industry, oluctric smelting cannot compote, but in special cases  where ample water-power Is available and blast furnace coke Is not  readily obtainable, oluctric smelting  may be commercially bui-cchhIuI.  It Is Impossible to di-fin.' the exact conditions, undor    which   electric  smelting can be successfully cam������~������  on. Each case must be considered independently after a most careful investigation into local conditions, and  it is only when these are fully  known that a definite opinion as to  the commercial possibilities of any  project can be given.  Br. Haanel adds some observations,  tn which he points out the gratifying  nature of tho experiments made offhand, in furnaces not designed for  the production of pig, as to tho fu \  ture of electric smelting. ���������,]  Fawef on tha Ottawa.  "I am credibly informed," he remarks, "that tho water-power at  Chats Falls, on the Ottawa, River,  can be developed at a cost to produce an electrical horse-power year  at the rate of $4.50. There aro probably many water-powers favorably  situated as regards good bodies of  ore in the Provinces of Ontario and  Quebec, which can be developed as  cheaply. When such power is owned  by tho company intending to use it  tor electric smelting, and peat, coke  or briquetted charcoal, made from  mill refuse, which would probably  not cost more than ?4 per ton, is  employed for reduction, the cost of  two of the heaviest items entering  into the cost of producing pig by  the electric process is reduced to one-  half."  LA  GRIPPE'S   RAVAGES.  HON. E, J. DAVIS.  Commissioner  ot  Crown Land.   Has  Aa.  nouuevd IIi������ Retirement.  Hon. E. J. Davis, .who the other  day announced his retirement from  politics at the close of the present  term of the Legislature, has been a  member of the Ontario Government  since July, 1896. He succeeded tho  late Mr. Balfour as Provincial Secretary in that year, and when Hon. J.  M. Gibson became Attorney-General  on the reconstruction of the Government la 1899 Mr. Davis became Com-  HON. E. J. DAVIS.  missioner ot Crown Lands, that portfolio being still held by him. Mr,  Davis is a comparatively young man  of fifty-three, yet ho has been in politics o*"er since he was a boy,"- although at the head of the most extensive tanning firm in' Canada.  He began his public career in his  own Township Council. From the  Iieeveship of King he passed, in 1884,  to the Wardenship 'of Xork. In 1888  hu entered the; Legislature as member for. Ndrth York, and has hold the  seat over since,  Mr. Davis is a Methodist, 'and a  temperance reformer. His pooplo were  among the first white settlors of Ontario, his grandfather having como  from ono of tho CarollnaB in 1770,  Just before the outbreak of the war  of the revolution.  DRUGGING CHILDREN.  The Victims* Left Weak, Nerveless  and a, Prey to Deadly Diseases.  La grippe, or influenza, which  sv/eeps over Canada every winter, is  probably the most treacherous disease known to medical science. The  attack may last only a few days, but  the deadly poison in the blood remains. You are left with hardly  strength enough to walk. Your  lungs, your chest, your heart and  nerves are permanently weakened, and  you tall a victim to deadly pneumonia, bronchitis, consumption,  rheumatism, or racking kidney troubles. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills never  fail to cure the disastrous after effects of la grippe because they purify  the blood and sweep away Us poisonous germs. Every dose makes new,  warm, rich red blood, which brings  health tand healing to every part of  the body. This is proved in the case  of Miss Dorsina Langlois, of St. Jerome, Que., who says: "I had a severe  attack of la grippe, the after effects ot  which left me racked with pains in  every part of the body. My. appetite  completely failed me; I had severe  headaches, was subject to colds with  the least exposure, and grew so weak  that I was unable to work at my  trade as dressmaker. I tried several  medicines without the slightest success until a drug clerk advised me to  take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I acted upon his excellent advice, and the  pills rapidly and completely cured  me. My strength returned, the headaches and cough disappeared, and I  am again enjoying my. old,-time  health. I am satisfied that if sufferers from la grippe will use Dr. Williams' Pink Pills they will speedily  recover from those after effects which  makes the lives of so many people a  burden."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure all the  common ailments due to weak and  watery blood, such as anaemia,  headaches, sideaches, indigestion,  neuralgia, rheumatism, sciatica, nervousness, general weakness "and the  special ailments that growing* girls  and women do not like to talk about  even to their doctors. But only the  genuine pills can do this, and you  should see that the full name, "Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills for Pale .People,"  is printed on the wrapper around each  box. If you cannot get the genuine  pills from your druggist send direct  to the Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,  Brockville, Ont., and they will be mailed. 50 cents a box, or six boxes for  S2.50.

WOULD PROVE A HINDRANCE To'  FARM  IMPROVEMENT.  If the efforts of certain parties are  successful, '��������� the farmers of Canada  will have to face a very unjust and  burdensome tax. A movement is on  foot to have fence wire, which has  for a number of years been admitted  Into the country duty free, put on tbe  dutiable list. The grades sought to  be affected are galvanized iron or  steel wire No. 9, 12 arid 13. Practically none of these are made in Canada,  and since enormous quantities are  used each year In replacing primitive  rail structures, and enclosing prairie  farms, the injury that a duty would  Impose upon the rural community  could not be readily estimated.  Since the admission of wire duty  free, Canadians have enjoyed the  benefits of cheap fencing of a 'very  desirable kind. This has not only  vastly Improved the appearance and  value of hundreds of farm houses, but  It has added Immensely to tho comforts of winter travelling over roads  that were formerly vory often impassible on account of snow blockades. To  put a check upon this sort of Improvement by a tax that could work only  Injury to tho rural population without benefit to any other class of people would bo Indeed a serious matter,  Besides working an Injury to the farmer, tlio fence-manufacturing industry would he demorall-tod. To Increase  the cost of Wire, both fence production and consumption would bo reduced, and farmers everywhere  throughout Canada would 'be hindered tn making improvement! upon  their farms. _____  HOW BIRDS SOAR.  The B������tt Flyer* SU-ia Up ������nd Down ������0 th*  Air���������Thing. Ciot>������ Observer!  Ha-������ Muted.  In the past few years the desire of  mankind to discover a means for  navigating the air has led to a deep  study of the flights of birds, and a  great deal of material has been, gathered. ������������������'."'  It is beginning to be the consensus  of opinion that the bird world,as a  whole is not nearly perfect in its attainment of flight.  All birds that have to flap their  wings continually, Buch as sparrows, finches, thrushes, crows and so  oh, are still in an imperfect stage.  More advanced are such birds at  pigeons, swallows, etc.. because they  can dart ahead for a space after  they have gained a good Btart by  the rapid flapping of the pinions.  But the only perfect flyers are the  eagles, vultures, albatrosses and other great fowl'that can rise and fall,  sway away and soar in, the air indefinitely.  Now, how do these big birds manage to. ascend to great heights without flapping their wings? It is certain that such birds as the eagle and  the vulture can soar into air gradually till they disappear from the eye  of the beholder, and yet it will be  quite impossible to denote a single  motion of anything except the tail.  One observer, Erich Hoffman, had  an unusual opportunity to gather  some facts that bear on this question. Two years ago he was in the  Caucasus on a mountain poak tbat  descended close to another one. Over  the latter there soared a great eagle,  and as far as he was from earth, he  was quite close to Mr. Hoffman.  When he was seen first he was  hanging almost motionless in the  air. Suddenly he moved swiftly ahead  pointing his head slightly toward  the Bky, and thus he glided along  without flapping a wing till his motion had ceased of itself. As it stopped he lifted his wings high in the  air, dropped his head, and permitted  himself to fall.  As soon as he had fallen a short  distance, his broad pinions spread  but to their fullest extent again, and  immediately the impetus gained by  the fall sent him gliding forward and  upward, so, that within a few moments he had actually slid upon the  air to a position higher than he had  been in before. -!  After he had done this five times he  had ascended so high without flying  that the observer could see him  It WAS NOT  AFA1TH CURE  DODD'S    KIDNEY    PILLS    CURED  MRS.  ADAMS'   BRIGHT'S  DISEASE.  She  Did   Not  Believe In Them,  but  Today She Is Strong and Well.  Collingwood, Ont., Feb. 6.���������(Special)���������Mrs. Thos. Adams, who moved  here about two years ago from  Burke's Falls, Ont, one of the many  Canadians who once had Bright's  Disease and are now strong and well.  Like all the others she was cured by  Dodd's Kidney Pills. .  "I was eight months1 an Invalid,"  says Mrs. Adams, "and no one can  tell what I suffered. My doctor said  I had Bright's Disease and Sciatica,  but I got no relief from anything he  gave me. At last a friend of my husband induced me to give Dodd's Kidney Pills a trial. 'I had no faith in  them, but I thought I never would get  better, but after taking three boxes  of them I was able to do my work. I  have had good health ever since I  used Dodd's Kidney Pills." ''  MISERLY.  "Sourboy isn't very popular," remarked the optimistic brie. "But he  has a lot of good in him."  "Maybe he has," replied the amiable  critic, "but I never heard of his letting any of it out." ������������������/���������.  No woman is ever as happy as a  man thinks she, is or as miserable aa  she believes herself to be.  V  It Is Known Everywhere,-���������There is  not a city, town or hamlet in Canada,  where uv,.Thomas' Eclectric Oil As not  known���������wherever introduced It made a  foothold for itself and maintained it.  Some merchants may suggest some  other remedy . as equally beneficial.  Such recommendations should be received with doubt. , There is only one  Eclectric oil, and that is Dr. Thomas'.

Miss MitforcTs  Sacrifice  Bir KEITH GORDON  Copyright, 1904, by Keith Gordon  Just around the first corn'ei-V-of the  small square table sat a slight' woman  whose dark eyes met young Barton's  exploring glance with a smile lurking  In their depths, and whom, with the  arrogance of youth, he promptly catalogued in his mind as "old." Around  the next, corner and directly opposite  bim the figure of a June-like young  creature appeared, silent and impressive as the facade of a handsome building. At his left a dapper middle aged  man, whose hair showed a shameless  tendency to retreat by the back way,  Was eating his soup in a severely businesslike manner.  Neither the young lady nor the little  dan showed the slightest ripple of interest in the stranger at the table, and  With the chagrin of a warm nature  whose open friendliness has been silently declined his wandering glance  came back to Miss Mitford.  The demure smile in her eyes seemed  to have deepened, and whether it  meant sympathy or amusement was an  open question. At any rate Stuart  Barton reversed his decision and decided that she was not very old after  til and that she undoubtedly understood. - -  He had heard of people so congenial  that they were old friends before they  had time to become new acquaintances. Before the meal was over he  was convinced tbat Miss Mitford and  he were persons of that description. To  be sure, they spoke only in platitudes,  but there was a raillery in her soft  eyes and in the smile that played about-  her lips which seemed to answer his  keen but unexpressed derision of their  conventional companions.  When you are young, eager and ambitious and have come to New York to  "rise".you have an aching need of intelligent, sympathetic companionship.  ���������Before-a-week-'was-past-Stuart-Barton-  began to find Miss Mitford's society as  necessary to his comfort as sleep or  food.  She listened to his arrogant, boyish  views of men and things with an interest which had not always been accorded  them and which did not fail of its effect. After the jaded, cynical opinions  of older men she really found them as  exhilarating as wine. Always they  parted with a grudging sense of breaking off at tho most interesting point,  with a parenthetical "To be continued," like a serial story.  More than once she had surprised  amused glances on the faces of other  boarders, and she was far too acute  not to interpret their meaning accurately. But she regained tranquil, too  happy nnd engrossed to care what the  ' common, conventional herd might  think.  ��������� "l suppose you know that they are  Bhying all sorts of things about us?"  sho said to him one evening when Miss  Bolwyn's behavior at dinner had  amounted to nothing less than a reprimand,  Then she went on mercilessly: "They  probably say that 1 am lending you on,  tbat I am old enough to know bettor,  that I am a designing old maid and a  few more nice things of that sort. I  want you to know all about it, becauso  ' I nm a lot older than you, sixteen long  yours of 3(15 days each."  She paused, with a queer, breathless  fooling thnt was an unplonsnnt surprise to herself. Sbo waited for his answer as If hor lite hung upon bit  words.  "Bother your ago!" bo laughed gayly.  "Your eyes are as young nB-n8"-he  hesitated, casting about for a simile-  ���������������_������ Miss Bolwyn's. Indeed thoy'ro a  pod deal younger, ond no is your  mind. Your ago is Just rlgbt, It In I  who am beastly young, Don't ever  montiou it again, for I fool like a more  kid whon you talk llko this."  Having disposed of the suggestion In  this summary manner, bo began to  talk of other and ploasantor things,  and before long Miss Mitford's clear  laugh was ringing out llko a girl's.  Mlis Selwyn was passing through the  tmlhbeard It and wondered In a vague-  ly nlttled way what Mr. Barton saw In  tbat old maid. Tbere wero times wbon  jsbc half regretted her hautew to the  y<mng Ktrnrtper. His cycft covtnlrdy  wcrt fine. Besides, It touched ber  prldt tbat a man should deliberately  turn to another woman whon she was  at band, The fact tbat the woman was  her senior anel .ao tcsuty oulj i-tftJ*  tho offense more heinous.  By degrees, therefore, her manner  toward him changed, thawing slowly,  but surely, like lco bofore tbo spring  ���������tin, But, though sbt melted, Barton  whs politely Indifferent, and Mist Mitford looked on with a keenly feminine  npprwlntlon of tlm byplny. Pho felt  that tbe siren was singing to her  knight In vain, and she rejoiced with  true womanly exultation,  "What possesses Miss Selwyn���������  thit-r whit I'd Ukt to koQwr that  gentleman blurted out.as they were  swinging along through the park together ,one day. "She used barely to  speak to me, and now butter,wouldn't  melt in her mouth. She's so blamed  pleasant she worries me. It doesn't  seem natural."  For reply Miss Mitford stopped short  and fixed her eyes upon him expressively. His color rose, and he looked  rather confused.  "You don't mean"���������  "Yes, that's it/- she replied, nodding  maliciously. Then they both laughed  merrily after the manner of Irresponsible young things who laugh 'ron*  mere Joy .until she abruptly remembered that in a woman of thirty-eight  such behavior, was shockingly frivolous, and resolving to be more dignified she grew suddenly pensive.  It was a soft April day. Tbe*-tender greens and misty grays of the  park were like a wistf 141 promise of  beauties to come. In the air the damp,  earthy smells of early spring floated,  the sweet breath of the soil as it  awakened from its winter trance. ,  With a sigh of enjoyment she seated  herself on one of the green benches,  and Barton took his place beside her.  Par some moments they sat caziner at  tbe Bcene before them in areamy silence, taking in long whiffs of the*  soft air with sensuous delight The  blurred, faint loveliness of it all bespoke fairyland.  He did not speak, but she knew that  be was watching* her intently. With  a sort of helpless, bewildered dismay  she realized that she was flushing like  a schoolgirl. "A woman of thirty-  eight," she taunted herself savage-  ���������ly, "thirty-eight, thirty-eight, thirty-  eight!" But it was no use. She flushed and flushed until she longed wildly for an earthquake, for any deliverance that ���������woujjj, rescue her from the  absurdity of her position. But none  came, and with lips that quivered with  annoyance she tried to form some diverting, impersonal remark,  A big, firm hand closed over hers,,  .and Stuart Barton looked down at her  like a triumphant young god.  "I know what you are going to say,**  he began, "but it's no use;. I love you,  and I'm old enough to know my own  mind. This is an exceptional case,  and there's no use of your tormenting  yourself and me by bothering about  outrages. I am certainly going to mar-  ..ry_you,-so-you-might-Justas-well-makeup your mind to it." ,  He paused for breath, and, though  she eyed him In disdainful silence, a  dangerous excitement, a triumphant  happiness, danced in her blood, and  she dared not trust herself to speak.  "You love me���������you know you do,  Alice," he resumed exultantly, and at  the protest that she tried her best to  make convincing he only laughed indulgently. With a shock it came' to  her that he was right. -, She did love  him. When she spoke a moment later  her voice was very low and tense.  "We won't talk of it any more now,  Stuart,".. she said, laying her hand on  his arm, "but a year from now, If you  feel the same���������no, don't interrupt!  You think you will, but you don't  know. Don't you supposo it is bard  forme?" And she looked straight In  his eyes with, an expression he thought  to remomber always. But youth has"  ever a poor memory, and a year contains 865 days.  "I'm going awny immediately," she  continued, with a little break in her  voice, as she realized what llfo would  seem without'Mm, "For a year I shall  drop out of existence, so far as you  are concerned. But at the end of that  time"- i  ���������       *'      ���������    . * '������������������ -,,*      *      ��������� ' ���������  A year had passed and another bad  begun before Stuart Barton found  himself again In that particular part  of the park. As before, he was accompanied by a lady, young, proud  and superb looking, und ns they seated themselves on the Idontlcal green  bench that bo bad occupied on a former momentous occasion he awaited  anxiously for tbo reply thnt she had  promised him,' Lator, tho first flurry  of oxcltomont over, she looked at him  with nn inquiring face,  "You wero awfully attentive to tbnt  Miss Mitford Inst year," sho remarked  tentatively. "I always wondered what  you could see In a woman so much  your senior."  Consternation seized Barton, Now  ho know why tlio spot had vaguely  haunted bim; why It reminded bim of  tomotblng once vivid, but now forgotten.   His face went pale,  "Sbo was a lovely woman," be* said  quietly,  t       t      e '     t   ,, t      e       e  ' faue uoesn t know tbat i gave bim  to her," muiiiiui-Al Ulm Mitford when  sho' beard of her truant lover's engagement to Miss Selwyn. Then as  two tears brimmed up in hor eyes and  rolled down ber cheeks she exclaimed  emphatically, "iou idiot I" and then  her fact went down to her band*.  southern slope of-the Himalaya mountains, at an altitude of 4,500 feet, 620  inches of rainfall have been registered  In a single year, of which amount 147  inches (12 feet Synches) fell in the month  of June. At a meteorological station iu  latitude 18 degrees, near the western  boundary of, Hindustan, the average  rainfall for fifteen years was 254  inches. ������In the northwestern part of.  England, at an altitude of 1,300 feet,  the average annual rainfall is 140  inches.!  The wonderful record given above is  still more phenomenal when we consider the fact that all the moisture the  atmosphere is capable of-holding at  any one time would cover the entire  surface of the globe to'.a. depth of .less  than four Inches should it all be instantly precipitated.

Sympathy is a well, toned instrument  that readily responds to notes of weal  or woe.  Sympathy is the most powerful human magnet for attracting and holding  friendship.  ;. Sympathy is perfect forgetfulness of  oneself in true feeling for the unbap-  piness of others.  Sympathy is love's healing balm  spread by pity's tender hand on sorrow's heart wound. -  It la Fascinating:, bat It la the Kn-  em*- of the Simple Life.  A business man of great promise  failed in spite of it in one of our suburban towns lately. A shrewd friend  of the family thus diagnosed the bankruptcy: "Jack made enough to live out  and could have kept ou making it right  along, but Louise wanted the extra  touch. She knew just how to put it  on, and in the end she put it on Jack's  financial difficulties."  Other women havo done the same.  The extra touch is the most delightful  thing in tbe world when it can be ar-  forded. It gives distinction to the commonplace novelty, to routine things,  grace to life. Yet, like other extras, it  has the trick of running up accounts  out of all proportion. If it do*s not  cost money its expenses in time and  vital force are equally great. The extra touch in dress means eilher a great  deal of money spent or a great deal of  time expended, and few women can afford either unless they stint in more  importantdirections.  The extra touch in social affairs often costs beyond all proportion. The  exquisite nicety of table service attained by some hostesses means continual trouble with servants and enormous laundry bills, to say nothing of  fret of mind. Distinctive entertainments involve money, brains, time or  all three. The extra touch is the enemy of the simple life. The average  household is much better off without it.  Yet its fascinations are such that those  of us who cannot reach it still sigh for  it, andithose who can are seldom wise  ���������-enough to refrain from its temptations  and complications.���������Harper's Bazar.  -������������������'���������'   \ ���������  -.

"Making over" Is disliked by most'  dressmakers, and an opportunity to  carry .such goods to a pleasant, tactful person who would see all its pos-'  sibilities and bring them out satisfactorily is hailed with delight. One who.  does such work must be careful to  keep sacred the confidence of ber customers. No one would be pleased to  have the details of her economy told to  others or the factv made ^public that  the pretty waist she wore was made  out of her sister's old skirt. In connection with this work one should keep  on hand a small stock of dressmaker's  findings. These could be bought at  wholesale prices and furnish a small  profit when sold at regular rates.���������  Woman's Home Companion.  Hat* a.  Artificial Beauty In Rome.  Personal artifice is at least as old  as the Roman empire, for, speaking of  the artificial beauty of a coquette, Mar-  tiol says: "Gollu, you are but a composition of falsehood.' While you, were  living at Rome your boirwas growing  on the banks of the Rhine.- At night  when you lay aside your silken robes  you Jay aside your teeth also. Two-  thirds of your person are locked up in  boxes for the night. The eyebrows  With which you make such insinuating  motions are the work of your slaves.  Thus no man can say, T love you,' for  you are not what he loves, and no1 one  loves what you are."  Nice, Soft Pillow In an Unobtrusive Corner.  It is essential in every home to have  a comfortable lounging corner. It may  be only a large, old fashioned sofa or it  may be a fashionable sofa bed, but let  it have plenty, of pillows and be reasonably soft. /  Five minutes' rest on such an article  of. furniture will serve to loosen  strained nerves. and prevent many a  family row unless of course several  members of the said family desire the  jiaven_of jcefuee at the Bame_time._  Then only a little unselfishness can  cover the breach of the peace.  Instead of walking off worries by a  long, tiresome tramp or confiding in  an untrustworthy friend use a nice,  soft pillow for a confidant. Bury the  offending; bead in the soft depths of  the comforting cushion, and if the  tears want to come let them come.  Tbe cushion will not tell anybody. It  Is, surprising to find how readily tears  run themselves dry ������vhen allowed a  free course, and it is a relief to a  weary or discouraged brain to have a  comfortable cry now and then In an  unobtrusive corner.

Its   Earliest   Meaning   Was   an   IB*  closed  Pleasure Ground.  The earliest meaning of the word  paradise appears to have been a walled '  in pleasure ground. In the Hebrew it  was "perdes," in the Persian "ferdus,"  and from one or other of these the  Greeks appear to have derived the  word "paradeisos," from which we get  our own word. We also know that the  ancient inonarchs of Chaldea and Assyria and also of Egypt constructed vast  inclosures of forest land for the preservation of wild animals kept for hunting purposes, and these were also called paradises. Thus, the historical  meaning of the word comes to this: A  space protected from all Incursion from  the outer world, lu which those who  were privileged to enter were able to j  indulge In such pleasures as pleased  their fancy.  It is easy to see the translation from  the material to the spiritual meaning,  paradise in th? latter sense meaning  the place of the elect or chosen. This  is strikingly borne out by the fact that  the favorite battlecry of the Moslems,  whose firm belief it is that those who  die fighting go straight to heaven, was  always "Fight! Fight! Paradise! Para-  disel" And the strong" probability Is  that they got the word from the Persian campaigns of the eighth century.  The use of the word in its pfesent form  In the New Testament is of Greek  origin, and its description as applied  to the garden of Eden is probably of  Hebrew origin, dating from the period  of the captivity.  l*he pli* is on.

Said  bis royal highness:  "Mr.  Pope,  I  hear you don't like  princes,"  "Sir, I beg your pardon."  "Well, then, you don't like kings."  "Sir, I must own that I like the Hon  best before bis claws are grown."  No reply could well have been happier. ���������  Cultivate Tact.

JWcCTur*  *���������  *  ?  *  <*'  *  *  No one around the frontier town of  Lewisburg knew much of Dr. Davy.  He had comeinto the locality without  ostentation, taken up a claim four  miles away and built a sod house,half  above and half below ground. For a  year he had dwelt there alone and had  only come into town once a fortnight  for provisions. He was called doctor  because he was a doctor, though not  seeking to ply his art, and no one was  able to say just how his title came to  be known. His next neighbor was a  mile away, and travelers who stopped  at his house for a drink of.water or to  inquire the way were treated with  scant courtesy. There was considerable gossip about the stranger, and many  people shook their heads and whispered that the officers ..of the law would  turn up in search of him some fine day,  but after awhile, as nothing was heard  against him, he was put down as a recluse and left undisturbed.  It was a year or more after Dr. Davy's appearance that he came to town  one evening to meet a young woman  who stepped off the train from the  east. ���������The family resemblance was so  marked that it was agreed by all that  the newcomer was his daughter. She  was hurried away as if the father feared to let the townspeople gefc sight of  her, but it had needed only a glance to  ���������enow that she was good looking and  about tw"enty years of age. Her coming revived the gossip, but as she was  not seen in town during the next three  months she was in time forgotten by  all with one exception. That exception  "was young Joe Taylor, who had been  made sheriff of the county a year before and who was being talked of as a  candidate for the legislature. > He had  only to accept a nomination to be elected, as he was a general favorite with  all. He made it his business while  scouting the country for horse thieves  to call at the Davy cabin, and he was  _thejnrst and about the only one to see  the daughter Jlollie in her own home  and to be hospitably received by the  father.

In timo bo wan quite ready to  acknowledge to hlrosolf that bo wns in  lovo nnd to bopo that bis feelings wero  reciprocated. He was feeding up bit  courage to speak bis mind when something happened to make bim turn palo  and set bis heart to thumping. As  sheriff, bo received an official document  by mall ono day in which bo was commanded to arrest oue Dr. James Uitni  ���������s sn embo-Miler. It was Bird Instead  of Davy in tbo warrant, but tbo personal description fitted tbo man who  was living out on the prnlrle wltb bis  daughter. Ills offense bad been committed many years before, but tbe complainant bad kept tbo warrant olive  ���������nd followed tbo embezzler's trail like  ��������� bloodhound. Tho demand was tbnt  be be arrested and securely bold until  extradition pupers could bo secured,  ���������rid ns even tbe locality In which be  was in biding was pointed out tbe  sheriff realized that be must do bis  duty If it broke ��������� woman's heart.  An hour after receiving tbo letter be  wns on his wny to the doctor's place.  All tbe way out tbere he was hoping  that the doctor might have been give*  a hint and fled or, if he had not, then  that, he might have indisputable evidences of his innocence at hand. His  face betrayed his perturbation of mind  to the girl the instant be dismounted  ftl the door. She was alone, and as  she stood forth in the June sunshine  and looked up at him she quietly said:  "Mr. Taylor, I know your errand  here. You ,, have come, to arrest" my  father on the old charge."'  "They���������thoy have sent on this warrant'" stammered Joe, as he handed it  t-n hftr to read,   "But I'm. honiuK that  your father 13 tar.iiway. oy tins uni>  "He is down at the, lake lisUing.   \\  had hoped that this matter was. deu'ii  at  last,  but it seems that the  man  desires a malicious revenge.

It was a partner  ehlp business, and the other man was  seeking to cheat father and fell into  his own trap."  "It was likely that way," nodded Joe.  : "But father even restored the money  ��������� ftar awhile, all but a oaltry sum. He  would also have restored tuat, unj uses it was, but he has been hounded  and driven till he has become desperate and determined. Is that wretch  to follow him to his grave?"

The girl had  put the warrant back into his hands,  and there w;as a sob in her throat aa  she-turned and entered the house, it  was a quarter of ah hour before she  reappeared. Joe looked up into her  face with eyes telling ,of sympathy and  love, and a blush came to her cheek  as she asked:  "Well, what are you going to do  about It?" ' V  "It's going���������it's going to be the hardest thing of my life," he replied, "but  I've got to do my sworn duty. I must  do it or stand impeached. Girl, you  don't know"���������  "Joe,", she interrupted, calling him  by that name for the first time, "a  girl knows when she is loved."  "Yes, she ought to, and you ought to  know that I love you."  "I do, Joe, and -I love-you.In return,  and you will break my heart if you  drag my/old father to jail. Say that  you won't do_ it���������that you will leave  the warrant unserved?'"   . ~  "Duty, girl," he whispered as he rose  up and put his arms around ber and  kissed her for the first time.  . "Then you will arrest him?" ,  He kissed her again and turned  away toward the lake, looking at the  paper in his band through tears in his  eyes. He had not taken a hundred  steps, however, before a rifle cracked,  and be pitched forward on the gr'ass.  His horse would have dashed off at  the sudden report, but it was secured  by the girl,  "How did it come about?" asked the  doctor, who had hurried home at the  report of the rifle and founij his daughter standing over a-'wounded and. unconscious, man.

No Inventors Anion-? Animal-.  It has been said by a writer of nature  books that a coon vjill amputate its  wounded foot and treit the stump In "a  rational way to allay the inflammation.  If one coon will do this, then all coons  will do it under like conditions. The  same writer avers that he has seen a  woodcock with a broken log mend the  leg with a cast made of clay and dry  grass. Then will all woodcocks wltb  broken legs do the same thing. Exceptional intelligence of so extraordinary  a character does not occur among the  animals. If one fox has been known to  catch crabs with his tail, then will all  nther foxes, under the stress of hunger,  where crabs abound, fish with their  tails. Ah animal will not do anything  which necessity baa not taught its  progenitors to do.���������John Burroughs ia  Independent  Importance of the Dairy Ball.  Where the buyer of dairy cattle has  the yield of milk in view it behooves  him to bear in mind that this is a matter that depends on the sire as well  as on the dam. A good ntllk cow will  not be the mother of good milk.cows  if the bull has not also belonged to a  race of good milkers. This is a principle of breeding that deserves more  attention than has hitherto been poid  to it.���������Professor Hansen of Bonn, Germany.  At the meeting of the State Dairymen's association at Durham, N. H.,  Professor W. D. Gibbs of the college  experiment station -said that be had  been studying tbe question "of economically feeding the milk cow. He bad  as rations to choose from corn stover at  $8 per ton, red clover at $12, ensilage at  $3, timothy bay at $18, bran at $22,  linseed meal at $30, cornmeal and gluten meal and oats each at $31* From  these he could compound several desirable rations, but most of them cost  more than the product of an ordinary  good cow would pay for. He estimated  that her ' product should be twenty  pounds of milk a day, worth 1V_ cents a  pounds or JjO cents a day. But with  eighteen pounds of corn stover, forty,  pounds of ensilage, one pound of bran,  two of cornmeal and three of cottonseed meal be bad a mixture tbat would  keep a cow in good condition at a cost  of 20 cents "a day. In this ration he has  not taken Into consideration tbe making of any gain in flesh or the value of  manure, both of which would be increased by giving a part of red clover  instead of so much corn stover, without  greatly increasing the cost of ration.  Ho*������v Often Shall "We Feed?  Cows appear to give better results  when fed twice a day than when fed  more frequently. When fed so frequently as three or five times a day  they are up on their feet straining and  worrying for their feed some time before Tt gets to them.

But this youth, fresh  from college, was unknown then, and  the great congregation had come to  hear Beecher and not him. Consequently as soon as he arose and announced that he was to- preach in  Beecher's place the people began to  drift out First one went, then two,  then-a~halfdozenrand-the-young*-man-  stood watching this ' dispersal from  the pulpit. *It was a trying moment*  and yet there' sat on his youthful face  a smile singularly composed. Out the  people tiptoed, and he waited, saying  nothing, for almost five minutes. Then  he said, as if in explanation of his  silence, "We will not begin this public worship until tbe chaff blows off."  "Witchcraft.  Three centuries ago the great statute  of James I. came into operation. It  made felons without benefit of clergy  all who "shall use, practice or exer-  eise any injuration or conjuration of  any evil and wicked spirit, or shall  consult, covenant with, entertain, employ, feed or reward any evil* and  wicked spirit to or for any intent or  purpose, or take up any dead man,  woman or child out of bis, her or their  grave or any other place where the*  dead body restetb,, orthe skin, bone or  any part of any dead person, to be  eriiplpyed or used in any manner of  -witchcraft, enchantment, charm or  sorcery, whereby any person shall be  killed, destroyed, wasted, consumed,  pined or lamed In bis or her body or  any part thereof." Under this net  witches were executed for more than  ���������  aaxttnw.  satisfied, the better the returns will be  for the owner. It is well understood it  will cost less and be more convenient  to feed tbe ration in twe feeds than  eftener.  Feedinsr Fresh Covrn.  In answer to, a correspondent's question regarding tbe amount to feed fresh  cows Hoard's Dairyman says: Thirty  pounds-of^silage,~15~pounds-of-clover  bay and 4 pounds each of bran and  gluten feed would. contain nearly 28  pounds of dry matter, but little less  than 3 pounds of digestible protein,  over 13 pounds of digestible carbohydrates and seven-tenths of a pound of  digestible fat This is very heavy feed-,  ing, more, we should suppose, than  any, "even extra large, cows could be  Induced to eat and much more than tbe  average cow can eat with profit We  are of tbe opinion that 80 pounds of  silage, 10 pounds of clover bay and not  to exceed 6 pounds of grain,would be  ample as an average allowance for  these cows, At all events we do not  hesitate to advise trying tbe result of*  reducing tbe allowance with a portion  of tho herd. If with reduced, feed there  is a reduced milk supply, tbe evidence  would seem to warrant going back to  the original allowance.  i Ca-asod Abortion.  Severali^yoar- ago we had a great;  quantity -of muskmelons and watermelons, citrons and cucumbers, which  we cut in small pieces and fed to three  milk cows and were very much pleased;  with the result, says a correspondent  of Rural New Yorker, But after about  two weeks we found that wltb one of  the cows an abortion bad been produced, and it immediately occurred to  me that It must lave been tne new  My uncle was a veterinary surgeon,  and I asked bim If my surmise was  correct and he said: "Yes; In all probability It was tbe seeds. It is-a well  known fact in the study of medicine  tbat any food or medicine that acts'  powerfully on the kidneys also affects  to a greater or less extent the generative organs." Three years ago we  raised a great quantity ol squashes,  and after gathering what were good  we turned the cows'into the field, and  they ate them, as many as they pleased^  but with tbe same result  For_o.fn._c Habits,  If a cow does not show a strong to-  clination to go dry within two months  of the time she is expected to drop m  calf, ber feed should be as light as will  keep ber in fair flesh. Sbe should have  no grain feed, and she should not be  milked dry, but less and less and less*  often. On the other band, If a young  cow shows an Inclination to go dry too  soon, make every effort to prolong ber  milking period by more succulent, food *  and reasonable Increase in tbe grain ration. Remember that the habits permitted with first calf have a tendency" ,  to repetition thereafter.  Fee-Una; Twice* ��������� Day.  At a recent dairymen's meeting at"  tended by the writer" one of the speak-,  era, a very practical and successful  man, advised feeding cows only twice  a day, since he had seen the plan employed with results just as good as  when the cattle had three meals and  with a considerable saving in labor.  Yet the speaker confessed that he still  fed his cows three times a day, merely,  because he feared that a change would  cause temporary shrinkage in the milk .  yield.; But'there is no need to fear  such.effects, says American Cultivator.  The writer made the change from  three.to only two feedings without so  -far as could be observed, losing a single quart of milk. It was done gradually in about four days, making the-  noon meal lighter.each day and increas*  ing "the^other feeds until the change-  was made before the cows knew what .  was being done.

In this,series of life sketches of the  men who are the public recorders,  and, to a large and increasing extent,  the moulders of public opinion,  throughout the Canadian West, three  characteristics are observable in them  as a class���������first and primarily, their  youth; second, ;$ieir enterprise, - and  third, their energy.  Journalism is pre-eminently'*u pro-  ~fg������sioir"for-yoxing-ruenr-For-one"Snan-  engaged therein who has passed five  and thirty of life's milestones there  must be many who are less, than that  age. Perhaps it is because, like the  ���������somewhat kindred profession of teaching, newspaper work is often regard;  ed, hy those engaged therein, not as  a life-work, but as a temporary means  of securing, amid attractive surroundings, the means necessary to complete  a life training in law, medicine, or  some other occupation. Another reason may ho that newspaper men, who  Ot necessity come into touch with  -business men who instantly appreciate  ability, aro drafted off into other linos  of-activity, by a continuous absorption carried out througTi more tempting remunerative rewards. 'And, after a few years the glamor of newspaper work-.largely wears off to the  men who are in the business, and the  steady "grind" of daily work becomes  more and moro the outstanding feature of the life. For newspaper work  is a "show-down" day by day.   The  ' good- editorial iii last week's issues, or  the big "scoop",made yesterday,,wpn't  avail anything to-day if your competitor gets or has the better news service^ A newspaper differs from a  bank in that It can have no "rest," no  "reserve." A grocer who deals honorably  by bis customers increases their num-  ber.and after a time can leave all do-  tails to subordinates, and secure a good  income whllo enjoying a well-earned  rest as tbo result of honest dealing. So can a lawyer with his clients,  and almost every other profession or  business, But with the editor it is not  so. Yesterday's success cannot atone  for,to-day's failure Tho rcadlrte public consider nothing but the issue  thoy are reading; they do not relate  it to its predecessors.

Newspaper work, as before noted, be-  inir In an- especial degree a young  man's profession, It Is to bo expected  that in Western Canada tho men controlling tho press would In average  ago bo much below those in other  parts of tho continent. This Is remarkably true. "Boy editors" are  not phenomena In Manitoba and the  !'. m ,L,i- rp(vrr-tr,ri^H as they are  *Wvr\\w.

Borne of the  West at tho present time were.editors  boforo they wore out of theIt��������� teena.  Walter Scott, M.P., and J. J. Young, M.L  nro woll Known casus In point.

Such a one ia John 8. Brun*  dJge, of the Miami Herald.  Mr. Brundige has just reached  man's estate, as recognized hy law,  being 21 years of age. At a time when  most men are looking around to discover their aptitudes, and to select  their life work, he lias "found himself," has done much good in his  chosen profession, and made a personal record that stamps him as one  whose' future career will be well  worth watching. He has served in  every grade of both the mechanical  and editorial branches of newspaper  work, and by his own ^ability and industry has promoted himself in all of  them. He- reached the rank ofvfore-  man in tho same office which he  "devilled." and did this in the brief  space of four years. ��������� The mere recital 'of this fact is testimony, sufficient as to his energy. Perhaps such  a record is unique, in the craft. From  washing printing rollers to writing  editorials���������he has descibed the whole  of the wide arc, and in a period of  time almost ��������� unparalleled in its brevity. "Devil," apprentice, journeyman-  printer, foreman ��������� reporter, .editor,  proprietor���������and all between May 16,.  1900, and the fall of 1904! Mr. Brundige's friends say that "push" and  enterprise are his dominating characteristics. In the face of the facts  they may well be believed. V  Mr. Brundige is of United Empire  extraction, his parents residing  at Shelburne at the time of., his  birth. He was educated at the public  schools of that town, and'at the age  of seventeen commenced his journalistic career, on the Free Press of  that thriving, Ontario town." As already stated, when he left that paper  it was in the capacity of foreman.. His  eyes had already been turned toward  the Northwest, and in April of 1904  he came to Winnipeg, and, after a  brief survey of the field he., com-'  menced negotiations for tho purchase  ,oflthe_Hianii__Heraid, ____ij&JheJIiu__ly  ability and judgment, and ae hids  fair to fully realize the confide ���������& Expectations'' of his many frieudb,  "Talking about trains," said a pro  minent gentleman in Winnipeg the  other day; "I have travelled all over  the continent of America, and have  just returned from a trip .to New York  and Orleans, and I must say that I  have .not travelled in such a comfortable Sleeper as is provided by the  Canadian Northern Railway on their  "Flyer." One has everything that is  needed, a willing porter to look after  one's every wish, beautiful toUet, one  of the best smoking rooms, with cosy  arm chairs, the room taking up the  width of the car,' and at night complete rest is obtained owing to the  easy manner in which the cars run.  When I go south again I will use the  Canadian Northern."'  That is what every traveller says  after a trip on the fast train of the  Canadian Northern between Winnipeg  and St Paul. The trip is made in  ���������just 14, hours over the finest track  west of Chicago. The train carries  first-class equipment throughout,  Sleepers, Diners, and fine Day  Coaches, "and makes better time than  any train in the West. Better try it  next time you go south, and you will  use it often.  $100 Reward, $100.

Week after week its  Circulation grew, and its advertising  columns became a more^ adequate  reflection of the mercantile importance of the town in which the Herald  is published. Attention'f'-to the many  details of mechanical, make-up, is evident in every issue, and few papers  published in a town of similar' population will show to greater advantage than that published by Mr.  Brundige. His jobbing plant, too,  has been Selected with care. It was  almost wholly supplied by tho .Toronto Type- Foundry Company, and is  as much ��������� a tribute to the beauty of  the type faces carried by that institution as to the knowledge and taste  shown by their purchaser.;  As a local newspaper the ,HeraId  leaves little to be desired, wheh the  range of action its editor has marked  out for himself is considered. The  , happenings of the district are received with faithfulness, and oftentimes with, humor. Of,this humor,'by'  tho bye, Mr. Brundige has a notable  gift, and in addition is somewhat of  a poet. When he was on the Shelburne Free Press his comic poetry  on current, events and well-known  men was watched for with interest by the paper's readers, and  since his acquisition of tho Herald  he has frequently broken out in tho  same direction. Since he has assumed tho ownership and editorship  of thfl Herald Its business has almost  doubled, which, for a nine months'  record, speaks for itself aa to tho  energy and enterprise of its proprietor. Taken for all In all the  Miami Herald mnn may be described  as a. "comer"���������ono from whom things  may be heard in the future.
