They Always Cure All Forms of Kidney / Disease from Backahe to
Bright's Disease. ... ; s,
Ste. Marguerite, Dorchester Co..
Que.. Jf*. 30.-���(Special.)���That the
most' serious forms of Kidney Disease
cannot stand before Dodd's Kidney
Pills is being daily proved in Quebec,
and one'of the most convinving proofs
Is given right here in Marguerite.
Donat Llaflamme whom everybody
knows had Diabetes. '-.This is one of
the extreme stages; of Kidney Disease, aud it ba ei/ ordinary medial
skill. Consequently"1 it Is not surprising, that the doctor" who attended Donat Laamme could not help him. But
let Mr, Laamme tell the most wonder-
./���     ful pdrt''��� of tho story himself:
"Two boxes of Dodd's Kidney Pills
cured me," he says. "My Diabetes is
all gone and I recommend Dodd's Kid-
- ney Pills to all iny friends and to, all
those who suffer."
'    Dodd's Kidney Pills ure all Kidney
���-' Diseases from   Backache   to Bright's
to avoid pneumonia;
t  Hott to  Escape  This   Disease  by   Certala
Kuleu of Living.
Diirlng the   winter    many' persons
become  victims  of  pneumonia.    N��-
body is ..immune-from; the summons of
the death captain.   It is served upon-
the strong, as well as upon the weak.
But there are certain rules of living
'which, wili reduce one's liability    to
���   the . disease.   From  the "bulletins''���'of;
the health department and from other authoritative sources  the  follow-
���   ing rules may bo set down for observance: }
Do not  overheat the   house.   Most
j,  people habitually dwell in apartments
the temperature of which is  from 3
to 10 degrees too high.
Wear light   underwear    and heavy
overcoats rather than heavy   under-
-   wear and light overcoats.
Avoid mingling with crowds when
extremely    tired   or when food   has
.., not been taken for ailonger interval
than usual, i Avoid  becoming chilled
when ovorjtlrea. "*"
Admit^ihto all rooms where you
live and work plenty of sunlight and
fresh air.
Keep warm when indoors even if it
is necessary to build fires in seasons
when it is unusual to do so. Avoid
indoor chill; and dampness as much
as possible. For this reason be careful to remove the chill before moving
Into apartments freshly papered or
calcimined. .
Be careful .during variable weather.   Where there is continual cold or
, (*nn.��*tnnt warmth tho disease is little
if you have an attack of the grip
be unusually careful about your, diet
. and about exposing yourself to"'  tho'
V weather,   Neglected colds develop into pneumonia with   startling rapidity.
Take plenty of exercise In the sun-
llght and fresh air. As good nursing
is practically tho only euro for pneumonia, so good living Is practically
the only preventive.
Fatigue As a Causa of Aooldent,
That liability to accidents increases as an operator grows moro tired
Is shown by statistics gathered by
two Frenchmen, who publish tho results in the Itovuo SciontlfUruo, says
The London Express, In tho ense of
those who havo to do with lifting
and carrying thoy prosont the following conclusion:
Flrst.���Tho number of accidents Increases progressively from hour to
hour during iho llrst half of1' the
Second.���After the midday rest,
in tho first hours of tho afternoon,
tho number Is notably less than in
the last hour of tho morning,
Third.���-In the course of tlio second
half day accidents become hourly
moro Humorous. '
Fourth,���Tho maximum number of
accidents hourly toward the end of
the soconrl half of tho day is notably
larger thim tho corresponding maximum for tho morning.
Every worker knows that fatigue
contributes to forgotfulnosB aud to
mistakes of all kind. Tho best results aro achieved whon tho mind und
the muscles nro fn>nh. Operators of
machinery whoro safety of llfo and
limb la Invoivi-d hnve n double bur-

Women admire a mofe rugged type,
or a type in which a tinge of asceticism is combined with intense nervous strength, or the picturesque may
take their fancy. Roughly, the good
looking are vain or not, in proportion as they are dowered with the
saving salt of humor.- So'with the
.women. The pretty.%1.dolls may be
vain. The. nobler, amiI more interesting beauties are probably less so
than their plainer sisters, for the

charms are undoubted and have been
tacitly acknowledged ever since thoy
can remember.1 They ishine.,without

The Agonies of Indigestion  Can  Be
,   Cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.
..All over th�� land there are people
whose lives had been made miserable
through the pangs of indigestion,
who have been restored to the enjoyment of health through the use of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. One of
these is Mr. Wm. Moore, of Welland,
Ont. Mr. Moore is the manager cl
the electric light plant in that town,
and stands high in the estimation of
the citizens. He says: "It is really
a pleasure to "speak in favor of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. For four years
prior to '1903 I suffered great torture from indigestion and stomach
trouble. I could not eat solid food
without experiencing great agony,
and for over two years I had to resort to a milk difeL I had grown
emaciated and was almost unfit .for
active work. I was treated by doctors and took advertised medicines,
but without any lasting "benefit. One
day. a friend urged me to try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills. I began' their
use, but I must confess that it was
without much hope that they would
cure me. After taking a couple of
boxes I could see an improvement,
aiid this gave me encouragement. -I
continued using the pills until I had
taken eight boxes, when I was completely cured and able to eat any
kind of food I desired. I shall always praise Dr. Williams' Pink Pills,
as they saved.me from such misery
as only a dyspeptic .knows. I might
add that my wife has also used the
pills for, troubles that; afflict he sex,
and has been fully restored to health."

wagons, 40 miles long. In California
electric power has.' been carried nearly 140 miles. At that rate Niagara
may soon turn wheels in Syracuse,
Rochester, Erie and Toronto,, and
possibly Cleveland, as well as in Buffalo. Ten companies ,are now.- equipped to divert about 10'per "'cent.* of
Niagara's power. When 20 per cent,
is taken the American side of. tthe
fall will run dry. The Xockport"p'oAv^
er;"grab" bill," defeated;last yearjby
the efforts of The World and other
papers, ia about to be again introduced in the,VLegislature.;'The State
has spent over $2,000,000 in buying
the falls from their owners and in
beautifying the surroundings, ^ only
to surrender them piecemeal,, ; with
value greatly enhanced by time, to
corporations. Sixteen million people
have visited the falls since the' State
park there was established. Even if
the good of humanity demands that
men should walk dry-shod where now
Niagara runs, there is no reason why
;the millions which its power is
worth should go as a" gift to the
capitalists that wait in legislative
lobbies for legislative  "plums."
Germany's Acquired Territory,
It is twenty years, says The Lon-
"dori" PoStT*since Germany "begon^to"
build up a colonial empire, and the
net result is that after spending some
fifteen or twenty millions sterling she
has acquired more than a million
square miles of territory, with a
sparsely scattered- German population of between. 4ve,and six, thousand souls���men,' \womon and children, Of the adult xt-ale population a
third are officials or soldiers., Militarism is rampant everywhere, with
the result that the white settler
avoids German colonies, as he,would
a plague.

Jewett���I'd hate to eat'her eook-

A young wife decided to go to Kotao-
keeping and do her own marketing.
" Now I want to save all the money I
can," she told the grocer.
���'lam going to buy just as economically
as I can, and I am going to do my own
cooking and bake my own bread."
She saw some eggs. < -
"How much are eggs?"
.-* Well, we have them at various prices.
The best are thirty cents a dozen."
"My, how expensive I Haven't you
some for twenty?" \
1   "Yea m'am, but I can't recommend
them. V V
' * But we are trying to save money.''
"True, but you can't afford to save
money on eggs, butter and flour."
"Those are three things you want good
and you can't have them too good.
You can save in lots of ways but don't
do it on the necessities.''
���" What is your best flour?"
* * Royal Household.''
"How much does it cost?"
He told her.
"Have you cheaper flour."
"Yes, cheaper in price but really not
.as cheap in the end.   You see in Royal
Household Flour you get the largest
amount of flour value for your money."
"What do you mean by 'flour value'?"
"The largest amount of wheat nutri-
mentr-of pure flour.
"The cheaper the flour the less nutriment it has in it and the more  bran.
"The bran is in all flour till its taken out.
** It's all taken out of Royal Household
_ Flour, and that means the best machinery
l and the best milling.
"And another thing, madam, perhaps
you haven't heard of the new process
used in making Royal Household Flour.
It is purified by Electricity and that
seems to make all the difference in the
world in flour.

now���they seem to think it is healthier,   .
and 1 guess it is."
Suddenly she looked suspicious at tho
earnestness of his argument.
"Don't you make more money on
Royal Household Flour?
"No m'am���not as much as we,mako- >
on cheaper priced flour."
"Then why do you recommend it?"
"Because when a customer once tries
���Royal Household' our trouble is all
over, It sells itself after that and we
never have any complaints. If you send
to The Ogilvie Flour Mills Co., Limited,
Montreal, they will send you the Royal
Household Recipes. .
"Well; send me a barrel of -Royal
Household' then; and I'll have some of
those 30c. eggs too."
Evade Special Tax, '
Germany imposed a special tax on
department stores in 1900, and now
it appears that the owners have'shift-*
ed, tho burden upon the manufacturers from whom they draw supplies.
Naturally the manufacturers kick at
that, for they wore already handicapped by stringent Government regulations. The small retailers, its

was formed, say that its workings
are of no benefit to their trado.

''< It was not so much the loss of the  jtnoney to the Boontown First National;  ithat was but an incident It was the  ifact that Cbet Berwynd should have  been guilty at all. For generations the  jBerwynds had been among the leaders  of Boontown society, and it was regarded as a matter of course tbat Cbet  iabould have been made cashier and  paying teller when the bank was  started. "  Some of those who had known Ches-  ster Berwynd's father refused at first  (to believe the charge, but in the end  circumstantial ���������*, evidence proved too  strong to be ignored, and, though HanK  Simmons, the town constable, had a  auspicious moisture in hia eyes, he led  Chet over to the little village lock-  tip and left him in a cell, promising  that a rocking chair and other un-  prisonlike conveniences should be sent  over from his own home as soon as  possiblo. Hank had never forgotten  how old Dr. Berwynd had worked for  i twelve hours overohis little daughter  when she had had the membranous  croup, though he had Just returned  from a long ride Into the country.  One did not have to go back to Chefs  father for acts of kindness. As boy  and man Chet had always been ready  to give his aid to others, with no  thought of return, and his incarceration was a shock to the community.  Byeu after the venerable John Hollls had explained that there was a  package of five $100 bills and two $500  certificates which no one could account  for save Cbet, who bad denied all  knowledge of the money, there were  those who refused to believe that Dr.  fJerwynd's son could be guilty.  Foremost among these was Gertrude  -Bollis,Jwho-seA.aiide_e*������enJier^  ymu a ont oEBTituiin sake -upon ths  ���������sofa.  opinion to declare herself openly a partisan of Cbot, and it was one of tbe  things tbnt shook bor futhor's faith in  'his own judgment Judge Hollls was a  'believer In woman's intuition.  It was thle which Induced bim to  burry tbe trial In tho hope that somo (  evidence would turn up whereby tbe  accused cashier might clear himself,  ���������nd there was none more pleased  wtien, two days before tbo trial, It was  'discovered that rats bad stolen tbo  package and bad made a nest of tbe  ���������rlsp paper,  Gertrude discovered tbe nest In t  wanny under tbe cashier's desk. She  communicated ber "find" to ber father,  Who was also president of the bank.  It made an insignificant little mass,  this expensive nest; but, while tbe masticated particles wore too small to be  redeemed by tbe trensury department,  It was plain to bo seen tbat tbe nest  was composed of bills, Tbe nest was  auiy brought loi**iCL *t the trhl and  mua .suflkk-ut to acquit,  Chester was tbo only one dissatisfied  With the acquittal, nnd tbnt evening bo  ���������ailed st the Hollls homo. Gortrudo  mot him with nn flpoloisy for hor fa-  ..ther, lor whom ihe ttjv.uv..tu.ul v* ths  trial had been too much,  "It was you I came to see," returned  Cbestor. "I want to ask you a question."  Tbe rod nnshed into Gertrude's face.  There hiul h'^n no open onnrfihlp, hut  it had seemed to bor thnt there was  but ouu ������ni.i_t,:_u Che ter would wont  to "."It. Hor heart bout high, but the  Boxt moment Iter hopes were daubed.  "Where did you ronlly find that  BeHt'i"' he demanded.  "I told you thin morning at the trial,**  ���������be Aec'aud,  "it was iu the little cub  byhole under your aest."*  "Whatevtr made you look therel" he  asked curiously.,  "I supposed that I had a right to  feel curious," sbe said defiantly. "It  was my father's bank, and I bad heard  of how bills were stolen by rats at various times. I thought I would look  around your desk."  "May I see .the nest?" he asked carl-  ouslv.   "They let you keep it did they  ���������ot.r  She flushed, but she crossed to a  writing desk and drew from It a small,  almost shapeless mass, on the outside  of wbloh wero linv pnrticles, haralv  large enough for the "C" or "100** to  be distinguished. Chet looked at it  curiously. It was all tbat had stood  between him and prison.  "Do you know," be said softly, "that  this looks more as though it had been  made of Confederate money?"  She flung up her head. "You didn't  ���������ay so this morning." ,  "I did not see it this morning," he  protested, "T>he only expert opinion  given was by your brother, who pronounced them to be genuine bills.  Tbere are no _**ik threads in these  bills and *>ot a trace of tba ������eilow  backed* gola cro-iacace**.- >  "I didn't have any yellow ones," sbe  said, off her guard for tbe instant. He  caught her wrist ���������        '  "Do you mean," he demanded, "that  you made this?"  "I couldn't see you go to Jail," she  said, tears trembling on her lashes.  "Did you think I was guilty r he demanded.  Sbe shook her bead. "I couldn't think  that of you," she said simply, "but  things looked so black against you,  and I remembered stories of mice  building nests���������and I���������I fixed this up."  He waB so close to her that she could  feel bis quick breath on her forehead.  "Did you do tbia because you were  sorry?" he asked.,  She raised her head bravely.  "Not because I was sorry."       ���������  "Because you loved me?"  Her blushes were ber answer. In a  moment his strong arms were about  ber and she had hidden ber burning  face upon his shoulder. How long  they stood there neither knew. It was  Judge Hollls who interrupted them.  There were new lines of care in his  face as he came slowly forward from  the doorway,  ��������� "Chester,"��������� he---said���������slowly, _-JGod.  knows how I have been hoping that  some day your union wltb Gertrude  would give me the right to call you  'son.' I have looked forward to tbe  day witb no thought of what would  have come before. You are cleared in  our eyes, but while this bangs over  you it ie not well that you should  marry.'- i  With a cry Gertrude sank upon the  sofa. Chester bent oyer and kissed  her, then turned to her father.  "You are right, Judge," he said,  "Until this is cleared to our own satisfaction it is better so." He turned  slowly to the door, to be Jostled violently by Jack Hollis.  "I've run all tbe way from the  bank," shouted the lad. "We found  tbe bills in tbe trial balance book.  Old Dixon used them for a bookmark  and then forgot all about them."  Chester gasped. <  "And I thought, all the time you  had them," he cried. "Don't you remember handling them tbe afternoon  they were missed?"  Jack almost sobbed,  "Did you keep quiet for me���������or for  Sis?"  "For Sis!" answered Chester quietly.  And this time tbe Judge gave them  his blessing.  His Only Victory.

Of  the injurious species none of our scales  is food subject for birds, and few of  our injurious plant lice.  Now, a bird is not beneficial to the  agriculturist merely because it eats  insects���������in fact, its habits may be such  that it is really in j urious. To be of  direct benefit to the fruit grower a  bird must, feed, upon insects that cause  him injury. An excellent example of  this type is the American cuckoo,  which feeds by preference upon \ent  caterpillars, fall webworms and other  hairy larvae. This bird is not a fruit  eater at any time; hence its benefits  are positive, and it deserves every  possible encouragement.        .  Many insectivorous birds are indiscriminate feeders. They take anything  that comes in their way, and some of  them eat more beneficial and harmless  species than of those that are harmful.  In fiact, this must be so if we consider  tbe small number of really injurious  forms in proportion to the whole number. : ?  As a matter of actual fact, is the  grower of tree fruits actually beholden  to birds in any way nnd could be not  do entirely without them ?  Not a bird tackles the San Jose or  pernicious scale or any of tbe other  fruit scales. I know of none that eats  apple lice, peach or other root lice or  grape leaf hoppers. There is no bird  that gets effectively at the peach borer, none tbat digs out the round bead  apple 'borer, none tbat gets at the  sinuate pear borer, none that takes the  pear .psylla, none that eats_.curcullos  enough to save a plum crop and none  that exercises; any effective control  over the codling moth. Now", here we  have most of our chief orchard pests,  piece of turnips, with results greatly  in favor of turnips as a milk producer.  I do not guess at this, as I weigh each  milking and know what I did.  Experiment With Feed.        ���������  Experiment with the different kinds  of grain sold for feed and Bettle on a  mixture that will give the least cost,  eays a farmer in American Cultivator,  but use common sense in either case  and do not stuff one cow while you  starve one beside ber.

Copyright, 1904, by Belle "Manlatee
a hazy, warm breezed Indian
smimer day a huntsman trod through
thdthickly grown brush that bordered
thj country road. Once pr twice he
stuped and looked about in apprecia-
tiqi of the day and tbe beauty of the
cointry. Then he lighted a cigar, toss-
inr the match aside before it was ex-
tljguished., By the time he bad yan-
isied from view the half spent mutch
bid accomplished a'rivulet of fire that
rm merrily through the brush which
skirted the woods.
Mabel Wallace, coining <iow a the old
stwmlll road, saw the crackling fire
and hastened her pace. She noted the
chickening breeze blowing toward the
voods and the stretch of dry, parched
gkss. and brush that intervened. She
knew that if the thiMes were not extinguished at once the' wholes piece of
woods would go)- She caught up a stout
s\ick as she ran, and when t"b�� reached
tlie farther end of the Tunning fire she
began a vigorous beating.
. "Say, teacher, I'll help you," squeaked
a piping voice, which she recognised as
belonging to the boy in the First Header class, next to the foot.        Vj;   ��� V
"Johnny, run-down tp tbe first white
house beyond the woods and tell them
to send help. They have a telephone.
Ask them to notify all the neighbors,"
she directed between beats. ��� . ������ ���
Johnny was reluctant to leave a bonfire of such proportions as this was assuming, but he detected the "teacher"
in her tones and concluded to obey.
"That's the stuff!" she next heard
and looked up to meet the approval of
the farmer at whose house she boarded.
He procured a stick and made an effective onslaught upon the flames.
Presently they were re-enforced by a
passerby, and after a time the fire was
"You best go home and rest a spell,"
counseled her landlord. "You look all
bet up and tuckered out."
"It was pretty warm work," she acknowledged, arranging her hair, which
"the'breeze-and'her'exerttons hM"tum~
bled about her face.
"Well,  I tell you what, you  just
saved them woods, all right. The owner ought to make you a nice present."'
Mabel laughed.
"Who is the owner?" she asked care:
"His name is Max Thornton. He's
a young city swell, I Jienrd say."
She bad inserted the last hairpin
and now started for home with burned
face^and blistered hands. >
Meanwhile' Johnny, returning from
the white house, heard a shot ring out
in the woods.
"I'll git him to come and help teacher," he thought as he scurried through
the cool woods after the man behind
tho gun.'
"Say, tho woods is pretty near on
fire.  It's mos" crep' up on 'oral"
The man laughed good naturodly.
"Do you think I am In any danger?"
"The woods is I   Teacher sent mo for
help.   Sho is beating it but with a
'"All rlghtl   Corae along."   And the
man made for the rand in long strides,
the boy keeping pace by a quick trot,
explaining with many elaborations tho
particulars of the fire.
"My! Tenchor wns jest more than
layln' on to It with' a stick. I never
B'poscd sho could hit out like that!"
"Hasn't she laid It on to you yet?"
laughed tho hunter.

at tho blackened ground.
"Wo only got hero to the tnll end of
it," explained tho farmer. 'Tho school,

"It's jest down the next road a ways,
and mebby she's stopped In at tbo

"On a Saturday?'- hi asked tkep-
"Yes.   She writes her letters there?"
They relapsed into silence, Johnny
making plans for the investment of
his quarter and the man absorbed in
thoughts of a bitter, cynical trend. A
few months before be had been the
happy, accepted lover of a beautiful
girl who, was dr an��old, aristocratic
family in moderate circumstances.
Some pessimistic relatives of his bad
intimated that his wealth and not himself was the object of her adoration.
The little shaft, though resented, rankled and lingered and grew until in a
moment of desperation and ill judgV
merit he sent ber a letter sayine: that
bis fortune-had been swept away in
the late panic and offering to release
her, trotn the engagement.
He waited in suspense for her reply,
which came promptly. She coldly and
briefly agreed that the engagement
should be broken, owing to change of
Wounded' through and through, he
went abroad, aimlessly wandering from
one place to another, hating all women
for what one had wrqiight.
He was wondering now as be walked alons: tho dusty highway what had
become of her. Haa sne mnuea another millionaire?!" What a useless,
helpless wife i she would -make, for a
poor man! Then, he thought of the
struggling, sordid existence of this
scboolma'am. In his mind's eye lie
pictured her���lank, gawky and spectacled, beating the flajues.   ;
"Even "at that," he thought,,"she is,
more to be loved than a woman who*
feared poverty.    Faith, I believe
much dignity ana sorrow ana cnea:
"Then I cannot marry you, alas!"
"Why?" gasped the girl. ^
"What prospect is there of my ever
being able to demonstrate the superiority of man over woman if I marry
a woman who possesses such traits of

of killing and eating one of their own

similar case upon its records. The
bngantine Peggy, ' dismantled by
storni, was tossing a helpless hulk
for three months with a starving
crew on board. They drank freely of
the cargo of wines which they carried, and-perhaps it was the frenzied
condition of the men which caused
their desertion by a ship which approached and promised, but failed to
afford help. In. the end they killed
and ate a negro, and lived for sixteen days upon his flesh. A second

Speaking for England alone, any col-;
lection    of portraits of    representative men in the higher walks of   life
reveals the fact that this fine racial
curve is    rapidly becoming    extinct, j
From the Duke of Wellington   down, '
this noso has been associated    with
men prominent ih military or naval
affairs!"in literature (notably poetry
and criticism), and in finance and diplomacy, until the possession of such n
a significant organ has become    al- j
most;  the sine qua non of an    indi- '
vidual destined to be famous or sue- ;
cess*ful.    Varieties   of course existed,,
such.as when combined with beetling
brows and sunken eyes you recogniz-V
ed the professor or arch critic of his
generation. Or, when taken with  'tlw
square forehead, thin mouth and vis-;
ionary eyes of the military    genius,
you got   some    groat general.     Or,
simply existing in a siily    soion    of
good family and    meaning    nothing
whatever, in this case usually   overhigh at the thin bridge and in profile
far too strong lor the weakness    of
tlie face. In women of gentle extraction this nose was found beautifully
proportioned.     In belles of the  mid-
Victorian    era were the ..., lineaments
of Caesar clearly revealed,   associat-,
ed with tho delicacy of coloring and
softness of rounded chin and   cheek
which redeemed them from hard masculinity, so that fifty years   ago   in
any representative gathering   of Britain's fairest and noblest the observer would    note a   similarity of feature, especially in   profile,    between
peers and peeresses, poets and   poetesses,    statesmen and    the    grandes
dames of society. Caricatured, it lived in the drawings of Leech and Du
Maurier. Taken seriously, it  inspired
creative artists    both   of   pen    and
brush when dealing with the  heroic.
Superficial writers confused it    with
-th9-Hebraic-noser"and���in   prints*��*
criminal and depraved characters one
frequently found   it    distorted    and
wrenched to   conditions    of ugliness.
Tennyson and tho latest murderer apparently owned the same facial angle,
if you corrected the droop    of    the
eyebrow, the curve of the nostril, the
set of tho ear. Thus, the Roman   or
aquiline   nose made itself    and    itB
possessor known to the world.   Other
noses might, if they liked,   take   a
hack seat I��this   nose never.     Sala,
Lamb, Kingsley���all had varieties oi
the nose.    The American variant   is
seen in hundreds of nineteenth    century writers, preachers, New England
farmers,    old Cape Cod    characters,
Gloucester fishermen,  actors,  especially of tragic mould, showmen,    lecturers, bankers���tho   nose has pros-
pored in the now world. The significance of the feature is matched by its
endurance,  by tho persistency    with
which it appears in overy decade  up
to the present.
For with the opening of a now century tho noso, aquilino in its purest
state, equine   with accompaniment of
cruel gums and sharp    teeth In   Its
worst, scorns on stho point of   disappearing. Tho contemporary portraits
of groat men anil beautiful    women
no longer display it, Thero is a now i mo.do,
nose, It is to bo hoped that it   retains tho powers with which tho organ was originally ondowed; for oxen-pie, we suppose that it   still  can
detect and appreciate,    repulso and
doflfao   odors.    But   as a sign-post
showing the path to glory, ns nn In-
dox ot force of character or intellect,
it is practically useless.    Tho   now
noso is modest, retiring, sookoth  not
its own,   is novor   pufiod up.    You
would know It for a noso, certainly,
but Its amplo and aristocratic   proportions   aro wanting; it   lacks   a
brldgo, is spineless, immature, unfinished, Yet is it set In tho faces   of
many eminent   thinkers ond workora
among tho younger men;   it   is  already allied    to keenness of   vision
and talent, and may or may not  bo
���ssoclated    with    good   birth   and
brooding. Tho query in���Is it a   now

face you shall see few aquiline noses,

possessing this fast disappearing feature.

letter from   Dr. Hooker on the   re-
aults of three years' experiment    on
the Blondlota N-ray�� emitted by tha
human body.   Dr. Hooker clalmt  to
have established the fact that these
rays differ in color according to the
character and temperament of �� person, and also that the rays are not
by passing rays from his own hand
to the forearm of a corpse to, ��� prepared screen which immediately showed increased luminosity.  In reference
to the differing   colors of the rays.
Dr. Hooker says:    "Rays emanating
from a very passionate man have ���
deep red hue.  One whose keynote In
life it to be good and to do good
throws off  pink rays, an ambitious
man emits orange rays; a deep thinker throws off deep blue; a lover of
art and refined surroundings, yellow)
an anxious, depressed person, gray;
one who loads a debased life, muddy,
brown    rays; a   devotional,    good-
minded, light green,   and physically,
or mentally   ill person, dark  green
Dr. Hooker admits that his statement may be received at first with sv
smile of incredulity, but h�� ia confident that it will sooner or later bo
accepted as a fact. Ho further claims
to havo proved that N-rayB are not
only given by tho human body but
by objects which havo boon in contact therewith. Ho obtained thit
impression from a lcttor 30 yoara
ago, which proved that the rays woro
radio-active end retain thoir power

Among the tales told of the intelligence and affection of our canine  friends by Mrs. Sarah K. Bolton in her  book, "'Our Detoted Friend, the Dog,"  is the story of Dan, a deerhound owned  by Mr. L. C. Meachamp of Homer, La.  Mr. Meachamp was one day going on  a squirrel hunt and. not wishing Dan  to accompany bim, tied tbevdog to a  post by a rope. Dan whined and begged, but finding his master obdurate be  at last lay dowu quietly before bla  kennel.  It was growing dusk and time for  the hunter to return, when Mrs. Mea-  eham*) was suddenly disturbed by the  whining and barking of the dog, who  had been quiet all day up to that time.  She spoke to the dog, but'Instead of  being paellled at this attention he redoubled his exertions and broke the  rope which held hi:n. Theu be bounded  away, over the fence und into the  woods.  He was gone perhaps half an hour  when he came running back, panting  and almost breathless, with his master's hat in his mouth.  Mrs. Meachamp became at once  alarmed, and, calling ber son, they set  off to find the tuiaslng man, Dan all  the time bounding ahead and leading  the way. At length they came upon  Mr. Meachamp lying helpless in the  woods, where he had fallen into a little  dltcb and broken his leg.  Tbe accident happened, as nearly as  could be reckoned, at the moment  when tbe dog began to show his un-*  easluess. That he should have bad  knowledge of the accident seems incredible, .but his master firmly believes that be did know It and that it  was because be knew It that he was so  anxious to eet awav.

'I am a member of the Pennsylvania Society For tlie Prevention of  Cruelty to Animals.' she declared, waving the lapel of her coat that contained  the button. 'I demand that this butchery shall cease.'

Originally all book plates  wore bt-rnldlc. That wns in an nge  when people generally could not rend  end when the blazon of each family, as  shown on wearing apparel or suinll belongings, was as well known and quickly distinguished as an autograph or  photograph today. In the main, It is  sufe to advise Americans not to use  cost armor on their book plates. Tbe  uncertainty of tho actual right to arms  and the extreme difficulty of getting a  drawing that one knows Is undeniably  correct In ovory detail are Btrong reasons against Its use. Heraldry Is too  exact a selenco to admit of liberties,  nnd.lt is no uniull achievement to draw  the coat of units with absolute correct-  ileus und yet with artistic'feeling.  Though It Is not vory generally practiced. It Is legal to copyright the book  plate design, At least two plates aro so  protected tn this country.

It is an /open secret that, if Mr.  Stead had his choice, he would have  preferred a purely literary life to the  more strenuous hurly-burly of , journalism. Ho is one of the Canadian  poets, whose work is read by an increasing circle of readers. He his  had the love of versifying ever since  he was a child, his first poetry ���������/having been published in a Winnipeg  daily before he was'in his teens. His  poem, "The Empire Builders," which  was published in the Canadian Magazine in November last, attracted "general attention, and was reprinted in  many well-lcnown papers, notably the  Literary Digest. It; Is among the possibilities that Mr. Stead may yet develop into the representative poet o*  tho Canadian 'prairie country. In the  meantime he is a publisher in a  Manitoba country town, arid has built  up a business that is in every way a  tribute to his ability. And, at a re-  'markable age, has achieved a degree  of success of which,., he has every  right to be proud.  Coughing is an outward sign of  inward disease.

Nothing looks so awfully cheap as  a man waiting for his change in a  dry goods stcie.  . Courage, as a personal quality, is  one of tha dominating characteristics  of the peoples of new cpuntries. Phy  sical courage was to a certain extent indispensable to overcome the  obstacles, difficulties and disappointments incident to pioneer life and the  forming of new settlements. When  this necessity had passed, owing to  the establishment of modern institutions, and the Preservation of law from ^ , anfl  and order and respect of the rights herbSt are ft sovereign remedv m eur-  In Nature's Storehouse There Are  Cures��������� Medical experiments have  shown conclusively that there are  medicinal virtues , In even ordinary  plants growing up around us, which  give them a value that cannot be estimated. It is held by some that Nature provides a cure for every disease  which neglect and ignorance have /ls-  ited upon man. However, this may be,  it is well known that.Parmelee's Veg-  ���������!They���������are���������talking���������of��������� salving���������in-**  sunken warships, but solder wou,d  seem to be more needoa.  of property, the exercises of this  -quality of courage was transferred  from _the realm of physical protection  "to. fhaTof commerce." 'Men calculated  chances coolly, and, knowing, the  risks involved, took them with a quiet  daring and without a prevision of ultimate results that would astound one  used to tho strictly safo business  transactibns' of older communities,  And, moreover, these risks were  taken by men who elsewhere would  havo been considered boys���������who in  Europe and in the East would bo in  school or college, or occupying a  junior clerk's position, the highest responsibility entrusted to whom would  be the charge of the firm's petty cash.  But In the West in the early days all  men were young���������all young In jjeart,  and1 nearly all young In years���������and  people have long slnco become a:-  customed to seeing mere youths  charged with, and officially performing, the duties of conducting mercantile enterprises of provincial Importance'.  As this series of life sketches  of  Western Canadian editors has abundantly shown, no branch of .Western  activity has attracted to It a greater  proportion of energetic and capable  young men than the newspaper business.   Men,, havo been publishers at  an. age at which elsewhoro thoy would  havo hardly been put of thoir apprenticeship, and editors when, on eastern or European papers, thoy would  hardly havo been entrusted to write  a local itom. J. J. Young, M. "J-. A.,  Walter Scott, M. P., Ernest MacMil-  Ian, W. P. Kerr, and many another  example of "tho boy editor" will occur to the minds of all familiar with  tho annals of Westernnewspapordom,  To the roll of these boy editors should  bo added the name of ttobort J, G.  Stead, of tlio CartwrlgUt Review. IIo  established tlio Review when he vua  but olghtoon years of ago, His action  would havo boon a bold ono if he had  had tho professional aiiel mechanical  equipment of other boy editors who  had graduated from tho case or from  tho reporting room.   But Mr. Stead  ha,tl no such qualifications, and con  soqtiontly,    to tho outside onlooker,  his action must have savored strongly of tho courage of Ignorance.   All  that Mr. Stead could put Into' the business, at tho tlmo ho established, was  tho   capital   nocoHsary   to   Instnl   a  modest plant���������a plant which, though  small, was' selected with caro, and under the export advice of tho Toronto  Type Foundry Company���������and unlimited enthusiasm.

Government reports show that the  demand for chickens in Canada is  greatly in excess of the supply and  Great Britain is always clamoring  for , more. That means a steady  market and good prices for chickens.  You cannot raise chickens successfully with a setting hen. She is wasting time setting when she should be  laying. While she is hatching and  brooding a few chickens she could be  laying five or six dozen eggs. The  percentage of chickens she hatches is  much less than that produced by tbe  Chatham Incubator.  It will pay yoit to own a Chatham  Incubator.  Chatham Incubators contain every  improvement of importance in Incubator construction that has been produced. They are made of thoroughly  seasoned wood, with two walls, case  within case, Between these walls  mineral wool la packed forming the  very best insulation. Each piece of  the case Is mortised and grooved and  screwed, making the whole as solid  as a rock.

No person liken their  neighbor to know what their box-?  coat or tweed ready-made suit, or  even what their stockings cost, but  everyone has an Eaton or Simpson  catalogue, so as sure as you appear I  in coat 212 B, or skirt 27 A, your  inquisitive  neighbor^ knows  that  with all your preteu.ions to dressing well, your coat only cost $2 70,  and your tweed Buit $7.50, while if  you persist in carrying your skirt  nigh your stockings will have the  '-six for two-bits" brand on them.  Moral���������Don't be a travelling catalogue for Eaton or Simpson, (com)  In the Nelson " Economist" appears a Btory of a sad and trag.c  ending of one of the many instances  of -'man's inhumanity to man." A  case of an innocent, suffering wo-  , {nan being hounded to her death by  society up-starts, in all probability  females  of   tbe    " professional "  Christian type which haunts every  town, things swathed  in  purple  but not born In  it.    Vulgarity  which believes itself to be refinement became it if gilded, females  who do not hesitate to walk tbe  streets in male attire or spend the  hours in which they might be more  profitably employed, playing oards  for large and small amounts of  money,    These are the people who  decide tbe fate of one of God's  creatures,  DRIVEN TO DEATH BY BER  OWN HEX.  Mn T H Atkinson, of Ytnlr, wife of the  druggist who awaits trial ou ��������� charge of  srtou, committed sulolde by drowning ber*  self to tbe Ytnlr reservoir Thursday after*  noon, while laboring under great mental  (train,   Shortly before commuting the tot,  she took t'fl her rings, and plaoing them in  ��������� ohajwois bag, said to ber llttlo three-year*  old girl; I-Gladys, in oase anything happens  to mamma, wear these around your neck."

A������������d is thit ������ sample of that  Uhrtst-an oharity vie Imm so much about  these days,    The British law holds every  man innoeeat will the lew pronounce htm  guilty, and until T H Atkinson has bad his  trial he it presemid to be innoeeat of the  prime wita watefc he Is eaarged.   Kveo  thojM he be found innocent or guilty, and  that is a matter ior a jury to determine,  what blame ah- uld attach to the woman he  called his wife? and why should the women  of Yuiir sit upon this case? But that is uot  the question. The matter of comment is  the cruel treatment of Mrs Atkiuson. Surely her situation was one demanding sympathy. Failing to get it, she oommitted  the aot of self-destruction which deprived a  little ianocent child of the loving care of a  mother. The women of Yinir who drove  Mrs Atkinson to-her death may regard the  result as a tribute to their probity and ex-  cluxiveues**, but that will not be the estimate pUoed upou their conduct by others,  who do not make exalted preteusioris to  Chriitian oharity. The women of Yuur  may point to the motherless child as an ex-  ampltVof what they have accomplished by  their treatment of the little one's mother,  but ou which side of the ledger will the  reoorriing angel mark their conduct?���������Ths  Ecokomist.  FARMERS INSTITUTE MEETING  AT COURTENAY,  Meusr T T Gadd and RevWHDunhamT  lectured to the meetings of the Farmers Institute at Courtney on Wednesday and Friday evenings, the first-named geutlumau on  the subject of dairying, and the latter on  poultry raising.   Mr Gadd, in the ooume of  his lecture, Birongly emphasized the importance of dry,  well   lighted  sneds   fur  youug oalve������, as w.U as tor cows.     Some  dread diseased, such as tuberolosiu,  are engendered at a very early age, and great care  muse be experienced in rearing the youn--  animals    Contrary to the accepted belief of  the rank aud hie, he said t< at dry food w������s  preferable for young stock than wet,  this  causing them to thoroughly masticate before swallowing.    He recommended  \hx  growing by the farmers, for tbe sake of the  seed, to be ground into oil uake.   Oats for  feeding were better out a little on the green  side, than full ripe, the grain thus gathered  being more valuable in oertain flesh and  milk producing qualities,    He mentioned  that' the tarda in Comox Valley wore fully  up to thu mark, one in particular he having  hoard styled the banner herd of the Dominion end brink" well known throughout the  country.    Speaking of butter, he told that  the 1-wer the temperature  of  cream  at  ohurniug the better the quality of butter  produced. In answer to questions, he stuttd  that two kinds of grain���������any two kinds���������  constituted a better feed than either one  alone.    The oil test he considered bettor  for giving proper value in the dairy than  the tiuboook.    The Baboook was of great  value however tu testing the value of individual oows the weight of the milk being no  criterion,  Kov Mr Dunham opened his Thursday's  leoture with telling that he thought it a  disgrace for the Comox poultrymeu, with  the maguiiiuant advantages tbe ducriot pos-  eeises,  to have to import egg*.
