AMERICA ATTRACTS  PEOPLE OF IRELAND  -'Astounding Exodus of the Most Promising Youth of the Emerald Isle.  Since the census of 1900 was taken  ntc'rly 200,000 English emigrants have  .settled ia the United States, the year  ended with .July 1905, showing a larger number than any year since 1S05.  A new impetus has been given to Irish  .immigration within the past two  years, a turn which is quite perplexing to those native Irish societies  which have beeu unsuccessfully attempting to stop the great national  leak for so many years. The unrest  among the young native Irish element is still wonderfully strong. An  American, traveller in Ireland is as  much Impressed with this fact as lie  is with anything else in that country  of remarkable things. Everwhere lie  -sees and hears of wholesale departure  for the United States. Even in the  remotest rural hamlets the old people  can be heard lamenting some recent  ���������exodus of the most promising young  boys and girls. Almost every man or  ���������woman that a traveller meets and  talks with in Ireland has a number of  brothers or sisters, or very neat* relatives wbo have recently left for the  United  States.  Emigration agencies exist in every  part of the island. Every village has  a steamship agent, to whose advantage it is to use every inducement to  ���������influence the young men and women  to emigrate. Since their pay must  come from the steamship tickets  which they sell, the agents take good  care to see that many of them are disposed of in the course of a year. The  flaming posters which they flaunt in  the faces of the young people who are  already restive and over anxious to  go, offering the cheapest transnorta-  tion, and. to their minds, fabulous  ���������wages on the other side of the Atlantic, prove irresistahle to the average  villager. Burins; the last summer  whole villages in Cavan. Galwav and  Donegal have been d<***onulated, nnd  vast countrysides in Mayo and "Roscommon have been strioped of tho  remnants of their old-time armies of  farm laborers.  "Minard's .Liniment .Cures .Dandruff.  .v Hans  Anderson   Memorial.  An appropriate memorial to Hans  Christian Andersen is a museum fitted with objects associated with himself. Such a museum has now been  lounded, and, most appropriate jof all,  at Odense, on the Danish island of  Fiona, in the very,house which he occupied, The exhibits range from the  commonest objects of infancy to the  letters of thanks poured in upon the  writer from tlie delighted children of  many lands, and the pen with which  he wrote the last lines of his work.  Perhaps the most historically interesting feature of the museum Is the complete collection of the editions of the  "Fairy Tales" in almost every language of the world,  Minard's Liniment for sale everywhere  '"Owr $117,000 has been given this  year'by the Presbyterians of Canada  for work In the foreign fields. The  amount contributed for home mission  work was over $150,000. In view of  -The liberal response of the Presbyter-  Ian church to tho appeals, the home  "mission committee is arranging to op-  tin up olghty new fields this spring.  It Is understood that, the Grand  Trunk Pacific Railway Is aslttne* the  govoriimenl; to permit 50,000 tons of  ���������stool rail ft to come Into this country  free of duty.

Like xiw universe as a whole, the  Canadian Weather Bureau evolved  itsetf t'iom nebulae. Its beginnings  were very modest, indeed. Founded  originally mora titan half a century  ago, it continued for some.years as  c-vii once of the insatiable curiosity  of some of Toronto's early scientists.  Since 1S41, indeed, observations have  been made in the worm-eaten old  building, and for 30 years auerward  learned gentlemen continued to make  observations of sun, moon and stars  without the aid of the government.  In IS'l a grant of $5,000- was made to  Proi. Kingston, then in charge, the  government being anxious to give  vessels warning of approaching  storms. By 1SS0 the ooserva'tory had  become a regular government Bureau,  with Mr. Chas. Carpmael. an English  scientist, in charge. For 14 years he  continued in this position, to be succeeded by Mr. R. F. Stupart, the present chief, whose special qualifications  for the post have been widely acknowledged. As to the importance of  the results achieved by the bureau it  is superfluous to speak. Merchants,  farmers, mariners, and picknickers  aviiI vouch for it. Timely prognostications may have saved millions of  Tloliars' worth of nronerty and lum-  flre'*s of lives. Untimely nrognosti-  catfons. scnrceTv less valuable, have  given n's something to talk about. For  all of which we should be grateful to  Old Probs.���������Mail and Empire.  The Shwebo canal, which is to irrigate 189,000 acres of land in India, has  been opened.  Safety For Children.  Baby's Own Tablets is the only medicine that gives the mother the guarantee of a government analyst that it  contains no poisonous opiate and is absolutely safe. This is worth much to  every mother who cares, for the future  welfare of her child. The Tablets are  good for the tenderest baby or for the  well grown boy or girl and cure the  minor troubles that are inseparable  from childhood. Mrs. W. J. Macintosh,  Clam Harbor, N.S., says "I have used  Baby's Own Tablets for constipation,  vomiting and colds and have found  them a splendid medicine. I give the  Tablets all the credit for the splendid  health my little one now enjoys." The  wise mother will always keep a box of  these Tablets on hand.

The smuts of wheat, oats, and barley are parasitic plants of low development belonging to the fungi and  to the same large class as the mildews  and rusts found on many plants. The  seeds of fungi are technically called  spores and like all other seeds those  of smut will germinate if they are put  in the ground and get favorable conditions. The smut plant begins  growth in the soil independently and  afterwards attacks the young grain  plant by penetrating its tissues above  the sprouting seed. After this it  lives as a parasite in the stem of its  host, finally mounting to the grain  where it changes the contained  starch and gluten into its own seeds.  A smut ball is practically a bag filled with the seeds of the smut plant.  These are of an oily nature and when  broken at threshing time adhere to  the grains of wheat. The spores are  so minute that a great many can be  present on a grain of wheat without  being noticed even by their disagreeable odor. The smut outbreaks of 1905  were more severe than,has ever previously occurred in the prairie provinces. As smut is a plant and -yithout  doubt grows from seed-like bodies,  there, is more danger of next season's  crop being smutty under,, ordinary cir-  eumst-ances-than-ever���������beforer������������������������������������-  A practical remedy is to treat the  seed grain before sowing so as to destroy the adhering smut spores. This  may be done by dipping seed grain  before sowing in a solution of 1 lb.  of Milestone in S gallons of rain water or by springling the same over the  grain and turning it over thoroughly  with a shovel until every grain is wet.  Sow" as soon as convenient after the  seed is dry. Ten gallons of solution  will treat S bushels of oats or 10 bushels of wheat. Instead of the above  commercial formalin may be used, "/a  055. In* each gallon of water. One  pound of formalin In 32 gallons of  water will treat 27 bushels of oats or  32 bushels of wheat. Bluestone and  formalin are equally pood for wheat  but formalin Is much better for onts  and barley. After treating with formalin the seed grain should be hean<*d  uu and covered for a few hours with  lacks or blankets to keep the fumes  Tn  Andrew Carnegie, In an address at  a Sou thorn jublleo, declares the negro  a valuable asset of the South.

The Growing Time.  A Walkervtlle woman who was tall  and thin and stately when she got on  the ferry to cross over to Detroit  was noticed to have grown tremendously in her dimensions when she  returned a few hours later. An investigation in the private room of the  customs office at Walkerville revealed the following explanations of the  remarkable transformation:  5 night robes.  2 children's dresses.  4 suits of underwear.  2 cotton dresses.  3 kimonas.  6 pairs of hose.  The lady, we are told, was a prominent Walkerville society woman  and she threatened to make out a list  of other Walkerville ladies, all at the  head of Walkerville society who were  accustomed to adopt similar methods  of improving their figures.���������"Woodstock Sentinel-Review.

The Nestor of Canadian Journal-  Ism" is the title applied to Charles  Lindsey, the late registrar of the western division of Toronto by Prof. Gold-  Win Smith.  For 38 years he has discharged tha  position from which he has just retired. Prior to that time he was known  as the best leading editorial writer in  Canada. His touch on Canadian politics was magnificent. Every question  before the different Houses was under  his finger. His articles, brilliant and  magnificent, as literature were of a  strong, forceful character. In his position as editor-in-chief of The Toronto  Leader, the leading organ of the Conservative party in Western Canada, he  wielded an influence that could not be  denied.  He eame to this country in 1842 at  the age of twenty-two years. Up till  that time he occupied a position on  the editorial staffof one of the country papers of England. On his arrival  he was appointed editor of The Examiner, then published in Toronto. On  Its amalgamation in 1852 with The  Leader he was appointed tne managing  editor. In recognition of his work in  that position Sandfield Macdonald, then  the head of the local Legislature in  1867, appointed him to the highest position in the gift of the Legislature, that  of registrar of the City of Toronto.

Without saying anything about the  probabilities, we confess to a likijig for  the gallant gentleman's manner of  thinking. Most wars' are made by people who have not the slightest intention of taking part in the fighting. The  Jingo is very brave in the music hall  and at the public-house bar, but deep  in his heart he feels assured that no  enemy will ever get home to his own  door. "The Jingo, he is brave, boys,"  is one of the silliest lies. The Jingo's  bravery is all vicarious; it is other  ,P^Pi^he_is_^LingJLcL^sa^  perfected airship will bring him a new  sense of responsibility. "When," says  Col.

Father McWilliams, formerly of Rail-  ton, a personal friend c* Ulel, was considerably surprised when he was told  of a Winnipeg despatch which said that  Riel was not hanged, that a substitute  was provided and that Rlel was living  under an assumed namo in Rawlins,  Wyoming.  "You can say," he said, "Rlel was  hanged all right enough on Nov. 10,  1885, in Regina, N. W. T��������� Jail. I was  there; I was with him on the scaffold.  I knew him well.

In many instances the local authorities are now the largest employers ol  labor. Thus, the London County Council, in one department alone, employs  not far short of 4,000 men.  The scope of the activity of the boroughs is amazing. Merthyr Tydfil not  only manages a municipal farm, but reports that "a good .profit is: earned each  year."

London comes out badly In comparison with tho great northern and midland boroughs. Tho estimated "municipal trading" hnlanon pheot of tho  County Council for the coming year reveals a loss of about ������C:t,000.

It Was Used In Churches aa Early as  the Seventh Century.  Lecterns, or reading desks, came Into use at an early date.   There is frequent mention of them in ancient writings and representations   of   them in '  ancient vignettes.    They were  placed J  in the centre of choirs in large eccles- !  iastical buildings as early as the sev- j  enth century, and the choristers were j  arranged In rows on the right and left '  of them.    They are of various forms, j  but the eagle is Introduced in a very |  large number.    With outspread wings j  and mounted on a stem at a convenient |  height  for a reader,  this  grand  bird  from an early date was made, to serve  the purpose of supporting the framework on which the large   and   heavy  volumes used In the services were placed.   There "was probably some reference  in the thoughts of thoso who first used  them to the fact that tho eagle soared  to the most elevated regions and therefore in a fanciful way would be likely  to carry the words of the readers or  choristers nearer to heaven than they  might otherwise ascend.  In some instances the Inclined  framework on the back of the bird was  made to accommodate two books, one  above the other, and furnished with  movable brackets to light the reader.  Frequently the eagle is represented  standing on an orb and sometimes on  a dragon, and the base of the stem on  which it ls placed is often raised on  lions. A more simple form without the  introduction of the eagle consists of an  inclined book board raised to a convenient height on a stem.' Next "to this  are examples that have two slanting  book boards, which meet at their upper edges like a roof, and there are others with clever groupings of four  desks or book boards. These are generally made of oak or some other hard  wood. They nearly all turn on pivots,  and some of them are enriched with  muuh carving. Sometimes the eagle Is  of wood and the framework of iron. In  the handsomest examples base, stem,  bird and book board are of polished  viuss.���������Chambers' Journal.  Kissed By Two Kings; Is Dead.  Kissed by twe kings, "beautiful Miss  Croker," as Rosamund I^ady Barrow  was known when the last century was  young, has died nt East Molesley, England, after just entering her 97th year.  She was painted at the age of 17 by  Sir Thomas Lawrence; and the portrait was exhibited in the royal academy. From that moment she became  famous as the most beautiful girl ia  England.  George IV. kissed her, nod when she-  went to the court of William IV. aftev  Lawrence's picture had made her famous, that monarch said:  "I am so pleased to be introducecSi  to the young lady of whom I hav������  heard so much."  He stooped and kissed her on both  cheeks. The adulation which she received had no effect on Miss Croker:  Always of a pious, contemplative nature, she withdrew from society and  It is said never looked in the mirror  for two years.  She married Sir George Barrow lu  1832 and bore him three sons and five  daughters. Her grandson is the present holder of the title. Lady Barrow  lived in* the reigns of five sovereigns  and was in possession of niftier faculties to the end. She was beloved by  the poor of Molesley and in the district  for her invariably practical philanthropy. She was the recipient on her  birthday of many messages of congratulation.  Life Hns Cash Value.  It is no longer an eye for an eye or  a tooth for a tooth among the Indians  of northern British Columbia. These  are commercial days and it is cash for  a life now. Thomas Brown, an Indian,  was shot a few days ago by a dusky  woman named Kate Brown on the Kis-  piox ranch near Hazelton. The evidence  showed that the woman was holding a  .giin_forl-ano'fner.-woman. that she waa  not awareit was loaded, and it became discharged accidentally during a  friendly scuffle. The interesting part  of the affair is that the family of tbe  woman has agreed to pay to the heirs  of the man $500 in cash and $200 in  goods. For refusing to discharge a lik-  debt a few years ago a white tradei  was killed by the father of a young  Indian, who was drowned by the upsetting of a canoe in which the tradei  and the redman were traveling.  Hints of Skaters.  Almost every person that skates has  at his command several so-icallec  "tricks," or fancy figures, which ho Is  fond of executing. Nineteen out ol  tvery twenty skaters in executing figures make a mistake that to the expert Judge is unforgivable and which  would make a man a failure In actus.  figure competition, This fault is thai  of looking down and so bending th������  head down while skating. Tho uninitiated skater ls so fond of watching  his feet and skates that in somo cas*-!  It Is next to impossible to break him o:  the habit. Don't watch your skates  Don't bond your head forward nnc  downward. .Keep tho head and should  ers erect and eyes directed straigh  ahead, no matter how diflicult thi  figure.

Spoiled the Effect.  Sir John Long, the proprietor of Tho  Dundee Advertiser, and numerous  other papers, was talking in New  York recently about the English stage,  a subject of which he is an authority.  Apropos to Charles Fechter, Sir John  told this story:  "An interminably long performance  of 'Monte Cristo' was once giv������n at  the Lyceum, with Fechter in tha  hero's role.  "When, at 12145 in the morning, tho  curtain rose for the lost act, Fechter  was discovered sitting in a contemplative attitude on a rock. He neither  moved nor spoke. The silence was deep  and impressive.  "Suddenly, though, this fine effect  was spoiled. A voice from the gallery  called:  " 'I hope we are not keeping you up,  sir.' "���������The Wasp.  Noah's Ark at Sea. I  The Kildonan Castle, which arrived  at Southampton recently, had on board  one of the largest cargoes of strange  beasts, birds and reptiles ever "brought"  to Great Britain. It included six large  sea lions, sixty penquins, seventy,  snakes, poisonous and non-poisonous,  two aard-wolves, thirty Cape baboons,  seventy-six South African rock rabbits,  7i*0 small African birds of all sorts and  colors, ten antelopes, including springbok, bushbok and duykcrbok, seventeen  bee-birds, 750 tortoises and 300 largo  green frogs. They were brought over  by Mr. John D. Hamlyn, the London  naturalist,, who said that parties of  white and native hunters had been engaged in catching tho animals and  birds for many nv-nt'hs, and- that tha  pursuit was accompanied by many  dangers and adventures.'

And Gus wasn't a swearing nia.:  either.  How came he. then, to coin*nit snob .-,-  breach of etiquette and ethics"? Wol!.  may be you wouldn't have done it; bui  don't be too sure till you've heard eno-ufli  to be able to "put youi-Belf in bi.s ������������������i.-.oe.'  Imagine a 'yonntr husband of uii  montiw' standing, ardent, fornl and trust  Ira-j, casually entering hit* wife's dn*!*e  lug-room in her alisence, ami Ktiinibltn?  on a miscluovioufl-lookitig, rose-culorei*.  note, freshly opened, u enpid in every  crease, and a JurJuim iix'.. of anotherV  hiur���������red���������peeping stealthily from it?  folda!  The very paper blushed guiltily a*  Gus caught it up. Eagerly and -wildly  his eyes ran over the contents. For ���������  moment, he stood amazed and motion  less, and then broke out���������. But we've  promised to ski*) that, Perhaps any  other man would have given utterance  to as much, reading such a missire au  this, addressed to his wife;  " Affinity, Aug. ���������th, IS���������.

"Expect me by Monday, and keep a kiss for  '"Your ever affectionate     Sam Smith."  Smith I Smith! Sam Smith! Faugh"  What a name! Had it been Brown,  Jones or Robinson, there might have  been some bearing it. But Smith! And  red-headed, too! "Frailty, thy name ia  woman!" Yet it might be that Smith  was some presuming puppy, whose vile  epistle was the sheer result of his own  impudence. But no:"tne wife that  could receive such a communication and  conceal it from her husband could not  be else than false.  Smith's heart's blood waa the very  least atonement the case admitted of.  Bad (Jus-been more collected, he might  probably have bided bis time and taken  his peace-destroyer unawares and then  "tripped him," trusting to an intelli-  irent jury and proof of a mental alibi to  bring him out all right. But he was  stot sufficiently rational for that, and sc  Adonted the foolish plan of summoning  Smith to mortal combat.  G as had a friend, Captain Borax, a  retired quartermaster, thoroughly versed  in points of honor. The captain was  ���������just tho man for the emergency; but, as  "linTOlTWMrd'irSvTi^^  town for the day.  That no time might be lost, Gus de  manded satisfaction by mail, direr-tin**  his challenge to the address indicated in  the .caption of Smith's note, itud rixing  a time and place at which uis friend,  Captain Borax, would be prepared to  confer with any friend of Smith's. At  the same time a brief message to Mrs.  Gurley explained that important busi  ness necessitated her husband's absence  for the next tew days. Meanwhile,  Gus took up quarters at an obscure  country inn, leaving everything to the  management of the captain, whom be  had succeeded in finding at last, and  who, proud to be sought for such a service, promptly repaired to the appointed  rendezvous, where ho was punctually  met hy a friend of Smith's, The preliminaries wero speodily settled, and a  meeting was arranged for the following  morning,  As the time drew near, Gus grow nervous. The fact is, Smith's alacrity had  taken him a little aback. Ife had folt  quito confident that that miscreant  would shrink from encountering the  man whose honor he had outraged. But  instead, without turning the word,  Smith's second had chosen pistols, and  named ton paces as tho distance I Tt was  plain tbt- wretch was as bloodthimy ho  uiiBCiixpulous. Besides, Gus was no  shot, Avhioh Smith, judging from bid  choice of weapons, no doubt was. How  much better, Gnu bogun to think, to  huvo fled forevor from the scone of hia  unhappinosB, or to have invoked tho be-  ni-fii ii id of tho laws of South Dakota.  But it wivb too late now to retract,  From a troubled slumber, such as condemned criminals are apt to full into in  tlio laut hotim of thoir lust night, Gna  wiih startled by a sonsution as of a bullet piercing his thorax.

Not much iu my life at college is essential to tins history sttvo the training. The students came mostly from  other and remote parts of the north  country, some even from oilier states.  Coming largely from towns and cities,  tliey were shorn of those simple and  rugged traits tliat distinguished the  men of Faraway and made them  worthy of what poor fame this book  may afford. In the main they were  like other students the world over, I  take it, and mostly, as they have  shown, capable of winning their own  fame. It all seemed very high and  mighty and grand to me, especially tho  names of the courses.  I had niy baptism of sophomoric  Bcorn and many a boated argument  over my title to life, liberty and the  pursuit of learning. It became neces-  Bary to establish it by force of arms,  which I did decisively and with as little delay as possible. I took much interest in athletic sports and was soon a  good ball player, a boxer of some skill  and the best wrestler in college.  In my second year at college Hope  went away to continue her studies in  ,0 New York. She was to live in the  family of John Fuller, a friend of David, whd>had������left Faraway years before and made his fortune there in the  big city. Her going filled my days  with a lingering and pervasive sadness.  I saw in it sometimes ;the shadow of a  heavier loss than I dared to contem-  plirteT~ShTrhTitl-come-home-once-a-week-  froin Ogdensburg, and I had always  had a letter between times. She was  ambitious, and I fancy they let her go  so that there should be no danger of  any turning aside from tbe 'an of my  life or of hers, for they knew our  hearts as well as we knew them and  possibly better.  We had the parlor to ourselves the  evening before she went away, and I  re<i'i ������. little love tale I had written  ���������specially for that occasion. It gave us  some chance to discuss the absorbing  and forbidden topic of our lives.  "He's too much afraid of her," she  Bald. "Ho ought to put his arm about  her waist in that love scene."  "Like that," I said, suiting the action  to fhe word.  "About like that," she answered,  laughing, "and then lie ought to say  something very, very nice to her before lie proposes���������something about his  having loved 'her for so long���������you  know."  "And how about her?" I asked, my  arm still about her waist.  "If she really loves him," Hope answered, "she would put lier arms about  his neck and lay lier head upon his  -shoulder, so���������and then ho might say  what ls In tho story." She was smiling  now as sho looked up at me,  "And kiss her','"  "And kiss her," she whispered���������nnd,  lot mo add, Hint part of tho seeuo was  Jn nowiso neglcclcd."  "And when he snys, 'Will you wnlt  for me and keep un* itl\vuyn in -'our  lieart':' what should bo her answer?"  ] continued,  "Alwnys!" Hhe said,  "Hope, this is our own story," I  whispered. "I men It need any further  correction'.'"  "U'h too short-that's nil," sho answered ns our lips nn-i. again.  Just thon Uiule Kb opened tho door  suddenly.  "Tut, tut!" ho snid, turning quickly  nbout.  "Come in, Undo Kb," snid Hope,  "Como right In, wo wuut to seo yotf."  In a moment sho had caught hlui by  the nrm.  "Don' want t' break up tha moot-  In'," snid ho, laughing.  "Wo don't care If you do know," snid  Hope.   "We're not mainmort of It."  "Muln't got no cause t' bo," Im siild  "tio It while yo'ro young nn' lull o'  Tlnegnrl Hint's wiuit I sny every time,  It's the best fun there Is. I thought I'd  like t' hev ye both come up t* tny room  for n nilnu'e 'fore yer mother nn' lather como back," ho n.ild In n low tono  thnt wns nlmost a whisper,  Thon lit* (-hut ouo oyo suggestively  mid beckoned with his hond us wo foi-  ' lowed him np the ntnliwuy to the llttlo  room in which ho (slept, Uo knelt by  the bed and pulled nut tlio oid *kin  covered (runk that Iiiivid Brower hnd  given him won nftor we came, lio  felt it moment for tho keyhole, his hnntl  trembling, nnd then 1 helped hlra open  the trunk.

Jt  was tied in a big red liandke*rcmei.  We were both sitting on the floor beside him,  "Heft it," ho whispered.  I did so and found it heavier than I  expected.  "What is it?" I asked.  "Spondoolix," he whispered.  Then he untied the bundle, a close  packed hoard of bank bills with some  pieces of gold and silver at the bottom.  "Hain't^iever bed no use fer it," he  said as be, drew put a layer of the bills  4  .1*  ii           L������Sj  0     via  h 0  '������  it  .   e  *  li  ���������WvV  \ ill          ���������%*���������*������ *<5l 1  fykr  ?*w\  afhff"'    ^     ^1^^  jTWiWvjfi^  M%  v^S&/B*<*ffiElm'/>. qW/flk   .Jt!  yj  "*-"3*?   vi  WW^  Ss^fC  /    Jvpjj"  "eL1, i   /j-JflU i-iLiul  IM  Th'  HS  2*P^l\  ���������.,, ���������  "There.

Then he began counting them  -slowiy-and-carefullyr-���������-���������...������������������������������������  "There!" he whispered when at  length he had minted $100. "There,  Hope! Take thet an' put it away in yer  wallet. Might come handy when ye're  'way fr'm hum."  Sho kissed him tenderly.  "Put it 'n yer wallet an' say nothin'���������  not a word t' nobody," he said.  Then he counted over a like amount  for me.  "Say nothin'," he said, looking up at  me over his spectacles.  Father and mother were coming in  below stairs, and, hearing them, we  helped Uncle Eb tie up his bundle and  stow it away. Then wo went auwn to  meet them.  Noxt morning we bade Hope goodby  at tho cars and returned to our homo  with a sense of loss that for long lay  heavy upon us nil.  CHAl'TEU NVII.

With all our boasted democracy certain classes of Americans are as keen  in their pursuit of notable ancestry  which will entitle them to display  coats of arms as the most snobbish  aristocrat could be. An authority in  heraldry made the statement awhile  ago tliat only forty or fifty American  families at the most are entitled to the  Insignia of nobility. But nobody can  convince the average citizen who has  'made money" of any'.such ��������� thing, and  that supports very comfortably a  coterie of "genealogists" in' New York,  London and indeed many of the larger  cities here and abroad, who make a  business of discovering long lost relatives in the age of chivalry for worthy  twentieth century descendants.  Genuine old armorial bearings in  many cases represent puns or a play  upon the family name in the design,  which makes it comparatively easy  to cut distinguished ancestry out of  whole cloth, hall mark and all, and  have the "fake" look passably "actual." For instance, the arms of Sir  John Peche as they appear in a window  of the chapel at Lullingstone, Kent,  consist of two peach trees bearing  fruit, an old English E being imprinted upon each peach. The Bacon escutcheon shows a boar and the Lamb  family's three lambs.  This tendency is well Illustrated  among the American families which  really~have inherited coats of~arms7  The arms of the Standish family consist of three standing, dishes, the  Wheelocks of New Jersey display three  Catherine wheels, while the Carters of  Philadelphia have three cart wheels,  and tlie emblem of the Astor family  Is a yellow aster. How a coat of arms  may be utilised for decorative effect  appears in the new Hotel Astor, which  is oue of the most sumptuously furnished of New York's great hostelries. In  frescoes and wall hangings, lace and  linen, rugs and carpets, on glassware,  chiua and silver, the aster appears In  every conceivable form, fitted to every  possiblo scheme of design. This, too,  is on aucient use adapted to modern  usefulness.  When it is suggested that tho use of  family symbols ls undemocratic the  amateur in genealogy reminds us that  Washington, John Adams, Livingston,  Jay and ninny another Revolutionary  champion of equal rights usod a crest.  Furthermore, thero is a tradition, at  least not disproved, thnt tho most in-  votorato hnter of monnrchs, Oliver  Cromwell, wns having his own family  tree looked through for titled ancestors  at tho tlmo of his donth.

Prof. Maclonnan Engaged to Instruct  the People of the Dominion on Its  Advantages���������The Measures of the  Wonld���������Present Methods Show Great  Lack of System and Aro Very Con-  fusing--Adopted in Other Countries.  In order to prepare the public for the  Introduction of the metric system of  weights and measures Into Canada,  should such a step be definitely decided  upon, the Dominion Government has  ���������ngaged Prof. J. C. Maclennan, of Toronto University, to deliver a series of  lectures at different points in Ontario  between now and the end of the college term.  Similar lectures will be given  throughout every part of Canada during the summer by Dr. Maclennan or  ���������some one else who is thoroughly acquainted with tha system.  Dr. Maclennan has already lectured  on the subject in Stratford and Hamilton.  The object of these lectures is to  describe the metric system thoroughly,  ������nd to show its advantages over the  ���������ystem, or rather variety of system*,  of measurement, at present In use In  Canada.  Present Systems Confusing.  Dr. Maclennan's addresses will be of  ������ similar character to the one he delivered before the select standing committee on agriculture and colonization  at Ottawa in April, 1904. After reviewing the Interesting history of the metric system which was introduced into  France at the time of the Revolution,  and has since 'been adopted by moist  of the countries of Europe, he illustrates the extreme simplicity of this  method of calculation on account of its  aeclmal character.  He pointed out that we have still in  Canada a variety of weights and measures which are very confusing. ���������> For  Instance, the ounce avoirdupois ls 437.5  ���������fralns, and the ounce Troy, or apothecaries, 480 grains. We have the dram  a-wolrdupois weighing 27,344 grains,  and the dram apothecaries weighing 10 grains. The mile, according- to land measure, is 5,280 feet, while  the nautical mile is^.000 feet. The sur-  'Tiyor,s~chain~i3-&6-feet��������� and-the-engl-  ���������ee*r*s chain 100 feet. The same variety  et measurements prevail in every part  of the BrIUsh Empire and in the Unit-  Ad States.  Adopted   In  Other Countries.  The metric system has already been  adopted by France, Germany, Russia,  Austria-Hungary, Holland, Belgium,  Norway, Sweden, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Greece and half a dozen smaller  European states, by Egypt, Japan,  parts of China, Mexico and nearly all  the South American states.  Dr, Maclennan points out that if  the British Emtpiro and the United  Btatos would adopt the metric system  there would bo a uniform system  throughout practically the entire  civilized world. Tho Advantages to trade  and commerce are obvious. In fact he  claims the countries which adhero to  the old varieties of measurement aro  laboring under disadvantages in trade  en that account, and shows how the  Industrial conditions in Canada and  ���������very part of tho Empire would bo Improved by adopting tlie scale of moas-  ���������aremen't which prevails In the countries  whose markets wo are competing for.  New Zealand Adopts It.  At the Coronation Conference ot  Colonial Premiers hold In London in  1902 a resolution was adoptod to the  effect that It would bo advisable to  adopt tho metric system of weights  and measures for uso within tho Empire, and tho Frlmo Ministers urge  their Governments to consider Its adoption,  The motrlo syntem ls now Ir-galls-cd  In Groat Britain, In Cnnnda and in most  of tho colonies, but nowhere yet ls it  made compulsory. Now Zealand en-  acted a bill in 1003 by which tho system will be mado oumpulaory In that  oolony during the present yoar.  In 1004 a bill making tho proposed  aystem compulsory in Groat Britain  and Ireland after April 5, 1(108, was  Introducod In tho House of Lords and  received ita third rending, but santl-  men't In the Houso of Commona waa  aralnst it, and tha bill waa droppod  ���������here,  There la now a VII for its Introduo-  lion in all Government works before  tha United States Congresa.

THE BARK OF TREES.  Nature'* Provision Far the Relief ���������**  tlio Crowing l'liint.  The practical cultivator understands-  tliat naturo makes provision for getting  rid of the bark of trees ns the trunk lu-  crenses in size. On the growth of the  past season may be seen small olivo  spots. These are formations of cork.  From year to yenr, In subsequent do*  velopment, these little patches spread,  really eating their way through the-  bnrk. This is the provision which naturo makes for finally rifting tho barlt  In each species of plant. These corlc  cells have thoir own special linos of development, nnd this is tho reason why  each kind of tree hns Its own particular  bark. Tho charnctoristlcs are so prominent that clever observers enn select  different kinds of trees by their bark  even at midnight. As it is tho evident  intention of.nnturo to get rid of old  bnrk, It Is a groat help to tho tree to assist naturo in this rospeet, and any  wnsh or treatment which aids tlio  plant In gottlng rid of it Is a practical udvitntiigo. Soupy water wash or  lyo water is useful, nnd oven scraping  hns been found of groat advantage.  In n rough sort of wny llmo wash ls  frequently used, tho only objection bo-  Jng tlio whllo ninl glaring color, It Is,  however, tho ehonpest and tho best ot  all bnrk treatment.  THE USEFUL YAWN.

H. Neufeld, and of the progress of the German weekly newspaper  which lie edits and publishes in the  ���������city of Winnipeg���������the Volkszeitung.  'Born in Europe on March 19, 1876,  Mr. Neufeld came with his parents to  America in 1889 and early in life acquired, on a farm which his father  owned near Mountain Lake in the  ���������State of. Minnesota, those habits of  persistent industry and self-reliance  which has made him a leading member  ���������of his race in the Province of Manitoba and in the Canadian West. When  unable to avail himself of the advantages of school he studied in his  leisure hours and practised his exercises while walking after the plough,  going for the cows, mowing, raking,  and during the dozen and one occupations of a boy on a farm. For three  months during each of those winters  he attended the public school of Mountain Lake, having at the same time  charge of 'fourteen- horses and twenty  ���������or-more caWle~wh'rch'-"he~had-T-to~feed-  and attend to morning and evening.  Grifted with musical tastes in a  marked degree, Mr. Noufeld took a  ^course in vocal music and practiced  ���������singing every year with the Church of  the Brethren.; Having a fine first  tenor voice, he sang in male choruses  and choirs, mixed and male quartettes  and also as soloist in many parts of  the United States.  In-1896 Mr. Noufeld, young, ambitious, and eager for knowledge, took  a. complete'course in the Gorman Am-  ���������erican Academy in Rochester, N.Y.,  graduating in 1900, having also taken  a business course in the same Academy.  While in Rochester Mr. Neufeld be-  ,gait a course in'the Baptist Theological Seminary of that city, afterwards  .going to the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky.,  whoro ho first began his connection  with journalism by contributing to a  'Gorman nowspapor.

Weak,  Tired   and   Depressed   People  Need a Tonic at This Season to  Put the Blood Right.  Spring blood is bad blood. Indoor  life during the winter months is responsible for weak, watery, impure  blood. Yon need a Tronic to build up the  blood in the spring just as much as a  tree needs new sap to give it vitality  for the summer. In the sirring the bad  blood shows itself in many ways. In  some it breeds pimples and eruptions.  In others it may be through occasional  headaches, a variable appetite, perhaps  twinges of neuralgia,, or rheumatism,  or a lazy feeling in the morning and  a desire to avoid exertion. For these  spring ailments it is a tonic you need,  and the greatest blood-making, health-  giving tonic in all the world is Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. Every dose  helps to make new, rich, red, health-  giving blood, which reaches every  nerve and every organ in the body,  bringing health, strength and energy  to weak, despondent, ailing men and  women. Here is proof. Mrs. Chas.  Blackburn, Aylesford Station, N.S.-  says: "For the past Ten ye*ai*������' Dr .Williams' Pink Pills is the only medicine  I have taken when I found I needed a  medicine. Last spring I was feeling  poorly, was weak, easily tired and depressed. I got three boxes and they  made me feel like a new person.  These pills are the best medicine I  know of when the blood is out of order."  Thousands of people not actually  sick need a tonic in the soring, and to  all these a box of Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills will brine; new erargy and new  strength. To those who may he more  seriously ailing, who are suffering  from any of the ailments due to bad  blood���������a fair treatment with these  pills will bring new health and vitality.  You can get these pills from any medicine dealer or by mail from the Dr.  Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville,  Ont., at 50 cents a box or six boxes for  for $2.50.  A  New Penalty.
