Comox Creamery according to  this season has so far been a record  making one with the Comox Cream  ery AsBoc'n, as (heir output is going  up by leaps and bounds, also their  product is now recognized as a  standard article iu the Vancouver  arid Victoria market and in consequence there is oo difficulty in disposing of every pOund at a price in  adviince of former years. For the  month of June the output was considerably over 12000 lbs and tbe  price obtained was 2c more than  for correaponding .month of last  year.

THE GIANTJL OF OLD  ANCIENT RACES MARVELS OF PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT.  SThe Semlbarbarlana of One Thousand  Yeurs Ajfo Were All Remarkably  Proportioned Sleu ��������� The Giants of  .inoIt-ul  Greece Riid  Rome.  That tho humau race has degenerated in slee as well us longevity Is a  /act well attested by various authorities, A prominent 'Washington, physician who has made a life study of  ���������brain and cerebral developments, says  that, ou visiting the catacombs of Par-  ;U, what struck hlui most in those vast  repositories of tho contents of the  city's ancient graveyards was the  great size of the skull* iu comparison  with those et more ��������� modern mankind.  This superiority of development In the  men who lived 1,000 years or more ago  the scientist attributes to the open air  Me then in vogue and tho physical  ���������ports and exercises indulged In.  There are several races of giant*  mentioned ia the Bible, and the Greek  ���������fid Roman historians have recorded  many examples which serve to show  t^at these specimens of elongated hu-  ananity were by no means rare at one  jwiod of the world's history.  Thus it Is mentioned that the Emperor Maxlmian was eight feet some Inch-  as high. The body of Orestes, accord-  Sag to the Greeks, was eleven and a  fcalf feet In height, the giant Galbora,  '(brought from Arabia to Rome under  Claudius Caesar, measured near ten  feet, and the bones of Secondilla and  if-tislo, keepers of the gardens of Sal-  Hast,, were but six inches shorter.  Tht probability Is that outside of cultivated Qreece and Rome among the  isemlbarbarous of the greater part of  ���������present day European nations physical  -development reached often to more  srondrous proportions.  The Chevalier Scory In his voyage to  ,������&e peak of Tenerlfe says that they  ���������found In one of the sepulchral caverns  ������f that mountain the head of a  CJuanche which had eighty teeth and  Unat the body was not less than fifteen  sfeet long. The giant Ferragus, slain  toy Orlando, nephew of Charlemagne,  ���������was eighteen feet high.  , Jtfryiand.,a_celebrated anatomist who  ���������wrote In 1614, says that some years  ibefore that time there was to be seen  '9b the suburbs of St. Germane the  tomb of the giant Isoret, who was  {twenty feet high.  At Rouen In 1509, In digging tn the  .ditches near the Dominlcamo, there  nras found a stone tomb containing a  ���������skeleton whose shin bono reached up  to the girdle of the tallest man there,  toeing about four feet long, and consequently tho body must have been seventeen or eighteen feet high. Upon the  tomb was a plate of copper upon which  .was engraved, "In this tomb lies the  :_ob!e and puissant lord, tbo Chevalier  JRuon de Vallotnont, and his bones."  'Thore Is, Indeed, evidence In the ponderous armor and two handed swords  "which remain to us In museums tt  prove that the knight of the ages ot  -ehlvlary was a heroic specimen of ho-  man architecture.  Platorltis, a famous physician, declared that he saw at Lucarne the true  iurmin bones of a subject who must  Sbtivo boon at least nineteen feet high.  "Valance, In Dauphtne, boasts of pos-  ���������esslng tho bones of tho giant Bucavt,  flyrant of tho Vlvarals, who was slain  Hiy aa arrow by tho Count do Cablllon,  ibis vassal. Tbe Dominicans had a part  it his shin bone, with tho articulation  ������f the knee, and bis figure pulnted la  fresco, with an Inscription showing  that this glnnt was twemty-two and  one-half foot high and that his bones  wore found lu 1705 uoar the banks ol  tbe Modorl. a little river at tlio foot of  tne moUntsitn oi  Cnisol, upon whica  (tradition says) the giant dwelt.  Oh Jan. 11. 1(533. some masons digging near tne ruins of a castle m  Dauphine, In a locality which had long  been known as the Giant's field, nt the  depth of eighteen feet discovered a  brick tomb thirty feet long, twelve  feet wide and eight feet high, on which  was a gray stone, with the words  "Tbeotobochus Rex" cut thereon.  When the tomb was opened they found  a human skeleton, entire, twenty-five  and one-half feet long, ten feet wide  across the shoulders and five feet deep  from the breastbone to the back. The  teeth were each about the size of an  ox's foot, and his shin bone measured  xour reer.  Near Margarlno, In Sicily, in 1518,  was found a giant thirty feet high.  His head was the size of a hogshead,  and each of his teeth weighed five  ounces.  Near Palermo, in the valley of Ma-  gara, in Sicily, a skeleton of a giant  thirty feet long was found in the year  1548 and another thirty-three feet high  in 1550. Several of the gigantic b*aes  of the latter subject are still preserved  by private persons in Italy.  The Athenians found thirty-two famous skeletons, one thirty-four and  another thirty-six feet In height.  At Totic, In Boe-emla, In 758, was  found a skeleton the head of which  could scarcely be encompassed by the  arms of two men together and whose  legs, which are still preserved in the  castle of the city, were twenty-six fuel  long.  The celebrated English scientist, Sir  Hans Slqaue, who treated the matter  very learnedly, does not doubt the  facts above narrated, but thinks the  bones were those of elephants, whales  or other animals. But it has been well  remarked that, while elephants' bones  may be shown for those of giants to  superficial observers, this can never  impose upon such distinguished anatomists as have testified in many cases,  to the mammoth bones being unmistakably human.  Be patient with erery one, but abort  ill with yourself.���������Francis.  Magna Charta.  The Magna Charta, or great charter  .of-EnglishJLbetties,.Us^stIlLpr^s������rvM  in the British museum. The impress of  the sfeal and King John's name are both  very distinct.  A Baron'--, Crown.  A baron's crown is a velvet cap with  ermine border, but the coronet differs  from that of the viscount In having  eight pearls on the upper rim Instead  of fourteen, the latter number being  the allowance of tbe viscount. In  France the pearls are usually arranged  In sets of three.   Tlie Bird, of Paradise.  The bird of paradise Is found wild In  India and central Africa. It was so  called not on account of Its beauty,  but from the fact that the earliest  dealers cut off tho ugly feet and legs  of the living specimens and gave out  that the bird came from tbe other  world and did uot alight in this, so it  had no need of feet.

To appreciate the simplicity and ease of  washing with Sunlight Soap in the Sunlight  way you should follow directions.  After rubbing on the soap, roll up each   piece, immerse in the water, and go away.  Sunlight Soap  will do its work in thirty to sixty minutes.  Your clothes will be cleaner and whiter than if washed  in the dd-fashioned way with boiler and hard nibbing.  Equally good with hard or soft water.  Lever f������rot*<������������������������ Limht-ad, Toronto  A PUZZLING FEAT.  The "Wonderful Corn Growing- Maarto  ot the Zunl Indiana.  The medicine men among the Zunl  Indians perform a feat at the annual  "corn festival" 'which surpasses the  famous mango growing trick of the  Hindoo. Many scientists have been  present to witness this strange ceremony, but have never been able to  fathom the mystery of it.  In front of the southern opening of  the medicine lodge a large square of  clean yellow sand, carefully smoothed  and packed, is spread. With a ceremonial arrow figures representing the  Great Spirit, the earth, sun, sky and  rain are drawn. There are also the  symbols of the corn and a bountiful  harvest. The indentations made by the  arrow are then filled in with pigments,  blue for the sky and clouds, black for  the earth and chrome yellow for the  harvest The middle of the square is  left vacant. This picture in sand painting is a most pleasing specimen of barbaric art.  The hour for the ceremony arrives,  and at the right moment the medicine  man comes forth from his lodge and  ta_kesc a seat in the opening of the  In tho spring the blood Ih lacking in  tin- ml cor-niHclos wherein Is fotiud  tho Hie giving principles which put  snap and (Miorgy Into the- NyMtPtn���������  n*,il;ln-> (lie htvly active- and lh" mind  alert.

The"  warriors and chiefs arrange themselves around the square according to  rank. The ceremonial pipe is then filled'  and lighted, and the medicine man  blows one puff in each direction of the  compass and two to the heavens. He  then makes an address, going over the  past history of the tribe and the kindness of the Great Spirit and his care.  He��������� concludes with a prayer for, the  continuance of this favor.  The great moment has arrived. With  impressive solemnity the medicine man  thrusts the sacred arrow- into the sand,  withdraws It and places a grain of corn  into the hole thus made. Carefully  smoothing tho sand over It, ho resumes  his seat, whllo tho assembled chiefs  stnoko their pipes Ifi stolid silence. If  the Great Spirit condescends to answer  the prayer of the medicine man���������and  ho generally does���������tho corn will sprout  and send up a shoot. After an interval  of fifteen or twenty minutes tho sand  sooms disturbed at tho spot where the  grain of corn was planted, and soon  the slender green blades of the sprout*  lug corn aro soon nbovo the surface.  Tho plant continues to grow rapidly  and naturally during tho day, and by  tho noxt sunrise tho silk and tassels  appear. By noon tho stalk and ear  havo reached full maturity aud tho  ripening begins. Finally tho blades  and husks turn yellow and rattlo when  tho wind shakes thorn. All this, wo  must bear In mind, has boon tlono In  thirty-six hours. On thu morning of tho  second day tho corn growing Is complete.

"Watering Carjyle.  A lady was one day approaching the  modest home of tho Carlyles in Cheyne  Walk. Poor, long suffering Jeannle  Welsh Carlyle, up in the balcony, looked down at her. "Oh, do," she called  out, "come in! Mary Ann and I are so  tired of watering Carlyle I" The lady  entered and was escorted to the little  garden at the back of the house. There  ���������it was a hot day���������sat the great man  in a pool of water. For hours the two  devoted women had been taking turns  In deluging the flagstones around him  by means of a large watering pot.

It does business in  every state between the seaboards, aud  Its employees, who are messengers on  trains, local agents, route agents, office  men and drivers, number thousands.  The Continental continues to be great  and to pay dividends because it takes  a particular interest in tlie goings in  and comings out of each of its employees. It demands services of them  and loads responsibilities upon them at  Which bank presidents would shudder.  The company's motto, if a thing so  thoroughly useless were over an appendage of an'enterprise so utilitarian,  would be, "The Continental expects  every man to do his duty."  The corporation comes nearer to representing abstract justice than the supreme court. Good meu are advanced  -in precisely the degree they deserve  advancement.   Bad men are punished.

"Funny you'd stumble on to that,  hey, Bobby?"' queried Booth, with a  grin and a wink at Hornbeck, whereupon Bobby, blushing like a schoolgirl, hastened back to bis wagon.  Bobby was tbe best driver the Morgantown office had. He did oceans of  work every day, collecting parcels and  making deliveries. Besides, there were  four round trips between the office and  Morgan Junction, a mile away. The  railroads got no nearer town than tbe  Junction. He did all this and hankered for more, auxious for promotion.  for promotion meant more money, nnd  more money spelled matrimony. Bob'  by and Marion Haekett had'it all arranged.

"But, darliug, I don't want  you regretting having married mo  right at the start. I'm going.to have  enough so we'll be comfortable."  And A&irion. with foii-l bai'wf 'n Hobby's financial acumen, would lay her  curly bead oil bis shoulder and agree,  satisfied this was right, for hadn't Bobby said so?  Bobby was thinking up ways and  means one winter's night as be turned  bis horse's bead homeward with the  load of freight from the eastbound  train. The first quarter mile of the  journey, between solid rows of lumber piles and lighted by a" single arc  light, was lonesome. Bobby often  thought that if a holdup for the valuable money packages be carried were  ever attempted it would be on this  stretch of narrow, deserted street.  The possibility of such an occurrence  was always present. Tonight it became a reality. A man, a dark cloth  tied over bis face, suddenly sprang out  of the shadow and seized plodding old  Dick by the bit. Something glittered  in the, band which be pointed at Bobby. "Throw down that sack!" be commanded hoarsely. "The red way bill  stuff," as the valuable packages are  called, was in a sack swung over the  driver's shoulder.  Bobby's reply was to reach for the  Colt's thirty-eight, which drivers of the"  GontinentaUcai"ry-.wTbe^stningej,j^d,_  and Bobby felt the crease as of a hot  iron right above his right ear. The bullet had barely missed bim. The holdup  man went down next instead, a bullet  from the Colt's in his shoulder. He lay  helpless on the soggy snow until the  police came and took bim away.  A route agent came to Morgantown  next morning, talked with Hornbeck  and went away. Route agents are a  power, and Bobby was impressed and  flattered when this particular member  of the guild shook hands and jokingly  called him "Deadwood Dick."  A week later the sequel of the attempted holdup was written. A rod  way bill package, containing five $100  bills, came for Bobby from Continental  .headquarters. A commendatory letter  which accompanied it quoted a-certain  ancient circular far back In "Old R.  and It," which provides that tho Continental employeo who captures uninjured tho criminal that attempts robbery shall receive $100; tho sum shall  bo $r������00 If tho thief Is wounded and  captured.  Hornbeck says that letter, which Mr.  aud Mrs. Taylor prize most highly, Is  the first ever sent out from headquarters consciously or unconsciously humorous, "Old It nnd It" makes no allowance for humor, but tho oplstlo advised Bobby, among other tilings, to  get married.

The newly found colony of gypsy  moths at Stonington, Conn., marks the  invasion of a fourth state, and as it is  believed that the caterpillars of these  gypsy and brown tail moths may be  carried by automobiles and cars it appears not improbable that they may  take this quick route to other states.  American Cultivator says that no  person who has not seen the infested  TREI IN1TESTKD WITH GTPSY MOTH.  district or at the least traveled through  it by train can positively realize tbe  condition of affairs. He will pass  through miles of country with its solid  ranks of infested trees extending in  every direction. No trees escapes���������not  the straggling birches in the pastures,  the row of valuable shade trees, tbe  mixed growth of the forests or the  orchards and fruit trees of every kind.  Here and there are clumps of dead  trees, and wood cutters are removing  these as well as many of the live trees  to avoid further trouble and expense.  A writer in the Cultivator states that  last summer in a certain town of the'  infested district a house was covered  with caterpillars from the ground to  the ridge pole. The owner was obliged  to put tanglefoot arouna the house and  -wash-off-the-caterpillai-s-with-a-hose.���������  SPRAYING FRUIT TREES.  E-iffrllwIi Town*.

An experiment station issues its advice on spraying in tne following  bandy form: For the apple:  Spray with copper sulphate just before the buds start in the spring for  bitter rot, black rot and scab.  Spray the unfolding leaves with  paris green bordeaux for bud moth and  apple scab.  Spray as soon as blossoms fall with  paris green bordeaux for codling moth,  curcullo, cankerworm, caterpillars,  scab and sooty blotch.  Keep the fruit well covered with  paris green bordeaux until the fruit is  nearly grown for succeeding broods  of insects and further fungous troubles.  When the fruit Is nearly matured a  spraying with ammoniacal solution of  copper carbonate will have nearly tho  same effect as paris green bordeaux  and will not discolor the fruit.  For the pear, cherry, plum, peach  and apricot:  Spray with bordeaux mixture before  the leaves unfold In the spring.  Spray with dilute bordeaux just after tho blossoms fall.  Spray with dilute bordeaux mixture  two weeks after tho second spraying.  Dilute bordeaux mixture Is used for  the second and third sprayings because  of the tender foliage of this group of  trees, except tho pear, for which the  bordoaux Is used,  DSaeaae Prevented by Sanitary Hoaa-  ing- and Feeding*.  By GEORGE M. ROMMEL, bureau of  animal industry.  Hogs must be given dry and well  ventilated quarters, which must be  kept clean. Contrary to common be- :  lief, hogs have some habits which  raise them above other domestic animals from the standpoint of cleanli- ;  ness. For example, unless compelled  to do so, a hog will not sleep in its  own filth. If part of the floor of the  pen is raised and kept well bedded  with straw, while the rest is not, all  excrement will be left on the unbed-  ded portion of the floor, and the bed  itself will always be clean. Feeding  and drinking places should be clean  and the water supply pure. Unless the  origin is known to be uncontara mated  and\there has been no possibility of in-  fectlou during the course bogs should  not be allowed access to streams. Wallows should be kept filled up as much  as possible. At least once a month  the quarters should be disinfected with  air slaked lime or a 5 per cent solution  of crude carbolic acid. If a hog dies  from any cause the carcass should be  burned or buried and the pens thoroughly disinfected at once.  Breeding: and Feeding.  While inbreeding is the surest and  quickest means to fix type, the system  weakens vitality unless very carefully  followed. For this reason closely inbred hogs are more susceptible to  cholera than those whose constitutions  have not been impaired by the system.  The straight corn diet which many  hogs receive from one year's end to the  other also lessens vitality, and the researches of the Wisconsin, experiment  station have shown that this is probably brought about by actually retarding the development of the vital organs. A minimum inbreeding and a  varied diet, including, especially for  breeding stock, ample range, will therefore better enable the herd to resist  the attacks of disease."  Isolated Honaes.  The advantage of a number of small  portable houses, each accommodating  a few hogs, rather than one large piggery for the entire breed, has been  discovered by many breeders. In  districts where cholera is .prevalent  "tbe������e~are-*andcubtedly-the-best-sheltersi-  They make it more difficult to carry  contagion to all animals in the herd,  and the destruction of one of them in  case of an outbreak does not entail a  great expense. An added advantage  is that they may be moved from place  to place as needed. While more work  Is necessary in feeding, the convenience  and safety from their use more than  offset this disadvantage.  TRANSPLANTING ONIONS.  UJiY LAND GOOSE CULTURE.  For   Farm    Purposes   the   Toulouse  Goose Has Won Its Place���������  How to Proceed;  On every farm a flock of Toulousa  geese can be profitably reared each,  year, the number depending on range  and other facilities. The Toulouse are  the large gray birds by many called  dry land geese, writes Mrs. B. F. His-  lop in Orange Judd Farmer. They need  not have access to a swimming pool,  though like all water fowl they enjoy  it. Geese are very thirsty creatures  and should be supplied with drinking  water, especially during tho wanner  part of the year. Breeders, claim a,  swimming pool is of great, benefit dui*-  lng tlie breeding season, but we do **���������������&  think it makes any difference. If thai  birds are kept excessively fat during  the winter, ^vimming will thin tbem.  It is impossible for geese to keep top  weights*" if permitted to swim at will-  It is not best to feed them heavily on  grain all winter and neglect forage,  such as clover, vegetables, etc, as the  females will remain fat late and lay  few and poor eggs, such as soft shel������-^  ed and double yolked ones.

As the breeding season,  approaches, the first to the middle of  March, plenty of vegetables, a little  meat and not.much grain are necessary to secure good eggs, and larger  numbers than otherwise.  When the geese commence to lay,  the eggs must be gathered before they  become chilled, placed in a cool place,  a good cellar is all right, and turned  daily. If placed on their small ends in a  box of excelsior or chaff, they will keep  very well, and If set within a reasonable time, say two weeks, will hatch  well. Heavy chicken hens' may, be set  in warm nests on the ground with five  to six eggs, or oven seven if tbo hens  are very large. If the hen does not  turn them properly, it is no harm to  turn them by hand. Above all! thfngs  the hen must be large enough,to keop  all the eggs warm.

It is at once interesting arid pathetic  to go through the cells of the eastern  penitentiary and to note the objects  which, with tedious pains, the prisoners have made to while the time away.  Here a mantel will be hung with a  lambrequin elaborately fringed, th<������  flne knots and delicate patterns of the  threads comparing with the work of  the French lacemakers. The lambrequin is of an odd blue hue, und the visitor Is told thnt it is made of to old  pair of prison trousers.'  On n little gilt bracket Is a small  stuffed animal. The bracket, so delicately turnea, is of newspapers pasted  together und gilded, aud the animal Is  a rat, caught In a homemade trap,  stuffed with rngs nnd with pieces of  chewing gum colored with shoeblack-  tng for Its eyes.  A wall is completely covered with a  really artistic decoration of repds, on  which are perched at least 200 birds,  each accurately colored and drawn.  There are also numberless checkerboards and sets of chessmen that In  the delicacy of their Inlay work and in  the Intricacy of their carving would do  honor to the craftsmen of the orient  rollte llequoat.

D'  ye mind the toime we  pounded tbe rock under Boss McCormick?" .  Mr. Greeley gave me a place at once  on tbe local staff and invited me to  dine with bim at his home that evening. Meanwhile he sent me to the  headquarters of the , Republican central campaign committee on Broadway, opposite the New York hotel.  Lincoln had been nominated in May,  aud the groat political fight of 1S60  was shaking the city with its thunders.  I turned in my copy at the city desk  in good season, and, although the great  editor had not yet left his room, I  took a car at once to keep my appointment. A servant showed me to a seat  in the big back parlor of Mr. Greeley's  home, where ol spent a lonely hour before I heard his heavy footsteps in the  hall. He immediately rushed upstairs,  ���������two steps at a time, and in a moment  I heard his high voice greeting the babies. He came down shortly with one  of them clinging to his hand.  "Thunder!" he said. "I had forgotten all about you. Let's go right in to  dinner."  He sat at the head of the table and I  next to him. I remember bow, wearied  by the day's burden, he sat, lounging  heavily, In careless attitudes. He stirred his diuner into a hash of eggs,, potatoes, squash and parsnips and ate it  leisurely with a spoon, bis head braced  often with his left forearm, its elbow  resting on the table, It was a sort of  letting go after the immense activity  of the day, and a casual observer  would have thought he affected the  uncoutb���������which-was-ri'ot-true-of-him*-���������  He asked me to tell bim all about  my father and his farm. At length I  saw an absent look in his eye and  stopped talking, because I thought he  bad ceased to listen.  "Very well, very..well!" said he.  I looked up at him, not knowing  what be meant.  "Go on! Tell -me all about it," he  added.  "1 like tho country best," said he  when I had finished, "because there I  see more truth in tilings. Here the lie  has many forms���������unique, varied, ingenious. Tho rouge and powder on  tbo lady's cheek���������tboy are lies, both of  them; the baronial and ducal crests  aro lies, und tho fools who use them  arc liars; the people who soak themselves in rum have nothing but lies in  their beads; the multi.tudo who live by  their wits and tho lack of them In others���������they uro all liars; the many who  imagine a vain thing and prolcnd to be  what they are not���������liars, every ono of  them.

I hint nothing to  <l;i nttti wt'ut homo n-tUn-tiDB' uwn all  the great man had said.  I began shortly to see the truth of  what he had told me���������men licking the  hand of riches with the tongue of flattery, men so stricken with the itch of  vanity that they groveled for the  touch of praise, men even who would  do perjury for applause. I do not say  that most of the men I saw were of  that ilk, but enough to show the tendency of life in a great town*.  I was filled with wonder at first by  meeting so many who bad been everywhere and seen everything, who had  mastered all sciences and all philosophies and endured many perils on land  and sea. I had met liars before���������it  was no Eden there in the north country  ���������and some of them had attained a  good degree of efficiency, but they  lacked tbe candor and finish of the  metropolitan school. I confess they  were all too much for me at first. They  borrowed my cash, they shared my confidence, they taxed my credulity, and  I saw the truth at last.  "Tom's breaking down," said a co-  laborer on the staff one day.  "How's that?" I inquired.  "Served me a mean trick."  "Indeed!"  "Deceived me," said he sorrowfully.  "Lied, I suppose."  "No." He told the truth, as God's my  witness."  Tom had been absolutely reliable up  to that time.  CHAPTER XXIV.  HOSE were great days in mid-  autumn. The republic was in  grave peril of dissolution.  Liberty that had hymned her  FORECAST OF FA5MIUW.  birth in the last century now hymned  her destiny in the voices of bard and  orator. Crowds of men gathered in  public squares, at bulletin boards, on  street corners, arguing, gesticulating,  exclaiming and cursing. Cheering multitudes went up and down the city by  night with bands and torches, and  there was such a howl of oratory and  applause on the lawer half of Manhattan Island that it gave the reporter  no rest. William H. Seward, Charles  Sumner, John A. Dix, Henry Ward  Beecher and Charles O'Conor were the  giants of the stump. There was more  violence and religious fervor in the political feeling of that time than had  "be"en"^ingled~smce~lTT6r~"A~"seiise-of  outrage was in the hearts of men.  "Honest Abe" Lincoln stood, as they  took it, for their homes and their country, for human liberty and even for  their God.   ,  I remember coming Into the counting room late one evening. Loud  voices had halted me as I passed the  door, Mr. Greeley stood back of the  counter; a. rather tall, wiry, gray headed man before it. iiach was shaking  a right fist under the other's nose.  They were shouting loudly as they argued. The stranger was for war; Mr.  Greeley for waiting. Tho publisher of  the Tribune stood beside the latter,  smoking a pipe; n small man leaned  over tho counter at the stranger's elbow, putting In a word here and there;  half a dozen people stood by, listening. Mr. Greeley turned to his publisher in a moment,  "llhondos," said he, "I wish yo'd put  theso men out. They holler an' yell so  I can't hear myself think."  Then there was a general laugh.  I learned, to my surprise, when thoy  had gone that tk>* tall man was William II. Seward, the othor John A.  Dix.

The Ilatloss Man.  "The hatless man is here to stay,"  said n hatter, "and his coming did not  meet with the opposition that the shirt  waist man incurred.  "All but the baldheads were hatless  men last summer. At the seashore,  among the mountains, automobiling,  horsebacking, canoeing, rowing, driving,  walking, tlie young men were invariably hatles3. Their faces were tanned,  and the sun had given a bright, coppery hue and a crisp quality to their  hair.  "I know a half dozen undergraduates  of Princeton who took a cross country  walk of 200 miles in August without  hats.  "This new fashion has hurt the hat  business undeniably. On account of it  my summer sales have been smaller  than ever before. Still I don't grieve.  I like the idea of going hatless. The  fact Is, I went hatless myself during  my vacation. The sun and air did my  hair good,  "When the shirt waist man appeared  everybody derided him. A hoot went  up from one end of the country to the  other. But the hatless man was received In silence, an approving silence."���������New York Herald.  "War on Trailing Skirts.

The Elysee palace, situated in the  Rue Faubourg Saiut-Honore. is a cross  between a country house and a hotel.  It has had a checkered career since its  erection in 1718 and has harbored some  queer characters. Louis V. presented  it to Mme. de Pompadour. Who knows  how many lettres de cachet went out  of the gates to imprison those who  lampooned her? Under Louis XVI. It  was called the Elysee Bourbon. During tlie revolution it became national  property, was put up for sale, found no  purchaser and was turned into a government printing office. During tlie  dlrectoire there were gay doings in the  fine old rooms, aud the inerveilleuses  and incroyables danced and gambled  from sunset to sunrise. The rooms  were let to a syndicate who made a  large fortune out of the speculation.  Since then the palace has been occupied by Murat, Napoleon L, Lou's  Bonaparte and Queen Hortense, Alexander I. of Russia and the Due de  Berri. After tlie revolution of 1S30 it  remained unoccupied until Louis Napoleon made It his residence while he  was president of the republic. Nearly  all the subsequent presidents of the  present republic have added to It. The  large glass awning seen from the Faubourg, called by the scoffers "the monkey palace," was the work of Carnot.  His also is the large ballroom. The  left wing was built by Louis Napoleon,  and Grevy added a room overlooking  the garden. None of the presidents  seem to fancy its state bedroom, nor  do they write at the Louis XVI. table,  ornamented with brass work chiseled  by Gouttiere. They have one and all  preferred to furnish small rooms away  from the solemn state apartments and  use an ordinary desk such as we find  in any office.  Lincoln the Lawyer.  It Is conceded by all his contemporaries that Lincoln was the best all  around jury lawyer of his day in Illinois. Undoubtedly his knowledge of  human nature played an important  -part in hia success. He possessed another quality7r^howeveTr~wli'ich~"iI~gl~  most If not quite as essential In jury  work, and that is clearness and simplicity of statement.

The man who calls on  a woman when he is at his very best  and who never stays too long. Oh,  that masculine visitors knew the peril  that Ilea in an extra half hour! Almost  every woman likes to entertain men at  her own home and to receive the delicate compliment of a personal call, but  unless two people have the same hobby  or are engaged to be married (or are  about to be) any call that lasts over an  hour Is filled with dire threatenings.  "I know two men," sighed a young woman to her best friend, "who are both  handsome, intelligent, courteous and  altogether delightful. One comes at  odd intervals and stays until 11 o'clock.  Heigho! The1 other arrives periodically, chats, laughs, tells the news���������and  leaves In half an hour. I shudder when  the first comes'and sigh when the other  goes,"  There are more things than letters  that should be just long enough to  make the recipient "wish there was  more of it," and a call Is not least  among them.

Three   Doctors  Baffled   but  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Came to the  Rescue.  Just a few months ago the home of  Mi*. James Beers, of Emerson, N. B.,  was tilled wiui sorrow. It seemed  that death would claim the life of their  bright little girl. To-day this gloom  is changed to joy. The little one is  no longer'ill, but is now bright, active  and happy. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  "bTotvght"^his-chaTige-after-t'hree-doc-  Jbrs bad failed. Concerning this illness and cure Mrs. Beers says:���������"At  the age of six my little girl became  very ill. At different times for the  next year and a half three doctors  treated her without benefit. She was  terribly run'down and her blood was  nothing but water. Then dropsy set in.  Sne* would swell so that her clothes  were much too small for her. Her  legs and feet were nearly twice their  natural size. - To make her torture  worse rheumatism set in. Her state  was pitiable. Sometimes we thought  she could not live much longer and  for three monius she could not walk  a step. To touch her was to cause  her* the greatest agony. The doctors  were baffled���������they could do nothing  for her and as a last resort we began  the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  She took tho pills three weeks when  we saw there was a slight improvement. The improvement gradually became more marked and by the  time she had taken twenty-one boxes  her cure was complete. It la now  nine months since she took the pills  and she is now as woll as she ever  was and goes to school every day.  I cannot speak too highly In fuvor of  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for I feol they  saved my little girl's life."  Watery blood Is the cause ot ovor  half the sickness which prevails today.

Dr. Somerville Hastings, lecturing at  the London Institute of Hygiene on  "Cleanliness Is Next to Godliness,"  said that people were much cleaner  now than iu the reigns of Queen Mary  and Elizabeth, whon the washing of  clothes was unknown. Cotton was  hardly In use, and linen was expensive.  The poor wore rough woolen garments,  which were never washed, and the better classes adorned themselves with  silks and velvets, which were dyed  when they would no longer pass muster In regard to cleanliness. It Is recorded, continued Dr. -Hastings, that  James I. never washed either hands or  face during the period he posed as the  wisest fool In Christendom, but confined his cleanliness within the narrow  limits of wiping his finger tips upon a  damp napkin.���������London Telegraph.

When sheep were first Introduced  into Cornwall, England, a flock which  had strayed from tho uplands on to  Gwlthian sands were caught there by  the tide and ultimately carried Into  St. Ives bay during the night. Thero  the floating flock was observed from  the St. Ives fishing boats, whose crews,  never having seen sheep, took them for  some new kind of fish and did their  best to secure thr-jm both by hooks and  lines and by netting. Thoso they secured they brought home triumphantly  next morning as a catch to which even  pilchards were as nothing.  Ask for Minard's and take no other.

When General Sherman came np  from Charleston to visit the Army of  the Potomac Sherman's army had  marched from Cumberland gap, through  Knoxville and Atlanta, to the sea.  "Old Tecump's" soldiers were great  fighters and marchers, while General  Howard's soldiers were great on dress  parade. So Howard thought he would  astonish Sherman, and he arranged a  great parade at Bailies Crossroads.  The finest eastern regiments, with  the newest and smartest uniforms,  were selected, among them the Thirty-  ninth New York. They were the crack  drillers of the corps. In the regiment's  band was a handsome drummer boy,  who was a great forager. He would  always bave turkeys and chickens,  while the other boys were starving. No  one knew where he carried them, but  they found out afterward that ho carried them in bis drum.  When they beat up tbe parade and  the handsome Thirty-ninth came dancing along General Howard looked up  at one of bis colonels and exclaimed:  "Colonel, that Thirty-ninth drummer  boy ain't drumming. Tell your adjutant to ride o*������er thero and tell him to  drum. General Sherman Is hero. We  want to mako a good show. Ask the  fellow why In thunder ho doesn't  drum."  The adjutant cantered up to tbe  drummer and cried out:  ���������'You drummer boy, thero! Why  don't youMrum? You'ro just making  your sticks go. Why tho devil don't  you drum?"  "You toll tho colonel," said tho boy  In a low volco, with his hand ovor bis  mouth, "tbat I've got two turkeys in  my drum, and ono Is for bim and Gen-  oral Sherman."

Before  tho convention was over, many a  woman, who had como to it ruther  prejudiced against her, said, "What  mad folly could possess a school  hoard to let a woman like that go  whon they tnipjht huve had her to  teach their children?"  Those who know her well in that  capacity say that sho is a teacher  born tn the purple, and I can well  believe it. In addition to teaching  however, she has for yours dono  iiewupapor work, and every practical newspaper woman recognized in  her at once the elements that go to  make success in that calling.  Apart from her ability as a writer and teacher, she is an exceptionally fine public speaker.
