I remember well the coming of those  gypsies. We were fishing in sight of  the road, and our fire was crackling on  the smooth cropped shore. The big  -wagons of the gypsies���������there were four  of them, as red and beautiful as those  of a circus caravan���������halted about sundown while the men came over a moment to scan the field. Presently they  went back and turned their wagons into  the siding and began to unhitch. Then  a lot of barefooted children and woipen  under gay shawls overran the field,  gathering wood and making ready for  night Meanwhile swarthy drivers  took the horses to water and tethered  them with long ropes so they could crop  the grass of the roadside.  One tall, boijy man, with a face almost as black\*as that of an Indian,  brought a big Iron pot aud ^et it up  near the water. A big stew of beef  bone, leeks and potatoes began to cook  shortly, aud I remember it had such a  goodly smell I was minded to ask them  for a taste of it. A little city of strange  people had surrounded us of a sudden.  Uncle Eb thought of going on, but the  night was coming fast, and there would  be no moon, and we were footsore and  hungry. Women "and children came  over to our fire after supper and made  more-ofrme~th������ff-I-iike{i  THE IMMIGRANT.  A foolish  little immigrant  Has crossed the unknown sea  And landed on tbe shore of lifo  A citizen to be.

The tears are in his eyes. ,,  No doubt he finds this foreign  shore  A land of strange surprise.  Ah. foolish little immigrant!  What tales were told .to you?

They stood  about, looking down at us, and wbis-  *c( pered together, and one young miss of  ths "tribe came up and tried to kiss  /      me in spite of Fred's warnings.   She  \   had flashing black eyes and hair as  ,.     -dark,as the nlgbt that fell in a curling  ,x mass "upo*3 her shoulders; but, some-  $'     how, I had a mighty fear of her and  ;'..'       fought with despcKfltioh to keep my  '-'j   ���������   face 'from tho touch of her red lips.  .������������������      Undo Eb laughed and held Fred, by the  collar, and I began to cry out in terror  presently, when, to my great relief, she  let go and ran away to her own people.  They all weiit away to their wagons,  save one young man, who was tall  ���������with light hair and a fair akin, and  who looked like none of the other gypsies.  "Take care of yourself," be whispered as soon as the -rest had gone,  "These are bad people. You'd better bs  off."  The young man left, us, and Uncle Eb  began to puck up at"once. They were  going to bed In their wagons when we  enmo away, I stood in the basket, and  Fred drew'the wagort that had in It  only a fow bundles.

TO DB CONTINUED.  CAUSE FOR THANKS.        " *  Rev. Dr. Herridge of Ottawa Preaches  on  National Affairs.  Rev. Dr. Herridge of Ottawa preached a notable Thanksgiving sermon this  year. Here were some of the things  for which, in Dr., Herridge's opinion,  Canadians should be grateful:���������"We  have an immense asset in our timber,  our minerals, our native industries, and  especially in , these wheat-growing  lands of the west, only a small fraction of which have as yet been'cultivated. Though wealth may not be increasing for some of, us, there can be  no doubt that it is increasing as a  whole in every part of the country. We  are free from any acute form of social  or political disturbance. No desolating plague has come nigh our dwellings  With mean, petty and sordid aims, but  are determined rather to work out their  destiny in the spirit of God's gentlemen.  "I do not think that the most sanguine prophet Is likely to exaggerate  the outlook for Canadian life during  the next half century. The tide of immigration is at last flowing towards\us.  Our magnificent resources arebebo*m-  Ing better known both to ourselves and  to others. We discern with growing  distinctness the part we have to play  in that Imperial dream, which moves  toward a great unity of the British  race, and yet at the same time we are  more and more conscious of our own  Individuality. Now if we are but true  to the trust committed to us, if we  are resolved that Canada shall lose  nothing through our selfishness or our  folly, if these vast plains of ours can  bo filled with men of thrift and intelligence, men of clean hands and pure  hearts; if we fuse our various creeds  Into a simpler creed, which teaches us  to love God and to" love our brother  also, then there need be no fear for the  future of this Dominion. Our big  country will be also a great country,  and with deeper reverence and'more ardent faith we shall return thanks to the  source of every blessing for the good  land which He hath given us,"  ENGLISH FOOTBALLERS  Manitoba is as, large aa England  and Scotland,  Pure  Arrowroot.

Cherries were first brought into Europe from Kerasunt, on the Black sea,  by Lucullus about the year 70 B.C.  WIRELESS TELEPHONE.  ~We~~enjoy peace thWppreni-^w*���������bOT-"'  ders. The quality of our immigrants-,  as a rule, gives good hope that they  will do useful work amongst us. The  beginning of. a new transcontinental  railway will open up fresh districts  for settlement, and those two commonwealths which have been created this  year in the west are bound to play no  unimportant part in the future history  of the Dominion.  "Canadians surely did not need to be  told," went on Dr. Herridge, "that material wealth alone"would never make  this nation great. If that was what  we aimed at, the result might be a kind  of vulgar prosperity, but nothing more.  Unless the' .growth of manhood kept  pace with tho growth of money, wealth  would only make the littleness of soul  more plainly, more pathetically, more  grotesquely,, evident. We were accustomed to speak of Canatln as having a  great future, but that depended upon  the Canadians themselves, Among our  various enterprises none required more  care and none would prove more, lucrative than tho manufacture of men, The  spread of education among our people  was necessary, for true culture had a  value in itself, apart from'any material  results attending it. With ourv schools  open to everyone, It may be thought  that we? havo not much reason'in Canada to bo over-concerned'aT-but educational affairs, but I am not so sura 'bf  this. For ono thing' it seems to. mo  that the meagre salaries given to our  teachers am little short of a national  disgrace, , We ought to soo, to it, of  course, that tlioy aro properly qualified.

Suggestions of a Master Dairy Farmer  In Managing the Herd.  Concerning the care of dairy cows  Rev. J. D. Dietrich, who made famous  the fifteen acre farm ut Flourtown.  Pa., by keeping thirty-nins cows upon  It, says: A heifer tha: is coming in  soon should have the same feeding as  the cow that is dry. No bag, no cow,  Feed so you get ba\ udder, the eye  makes the dairyman!  Keep a strict gesta ion fa-pie and road  It over every week. Group your cows  coming in at different times and count  285 days for a cow to drop her calf.  A cow should not be treated as dry  until sho is actually so. The right way  to dry her is lo put her on tiino.hy  hay only and milk her dry by skipping  teats. I know the carelessness of cow  keeps; they don't deserve the name of  dairymen.  After the cow Is dry, and all my  cows must be dry four weeks, not  more or less, we feed for health and a  good calf and give the cow plenty of  exercise by making a boy lead her,  and make her walk. Her hind legs, In  walking, rub her udder better than  any man's hand can, and if she is fat  and you are afraid of milk fever, walk  her for exercise.  Even if it take two or three miles,  give���������lt to her, and I. will guarantee no  milk fever if you walk her six or seven  miles. Bran ls the safest feed that  goes down a cow's throat; hay and  bran when she is dry. In ten days to  two weeks before calving, she ought  to begin to riiake a bag.  If she does not, on four or six quarts  of bran, and all the hay she can eat,  and bowels are right, commence to  give her a handful of cake meal; Increase it to two, handfuls, and on up  to a pint, if necessary. At every feed  Keep your eye; on the cow and her udder.  It should not be a big, red, Inflamed  organ, as hard, as a brick, and out of  shape, but a splendid pendant recep-  table for milk, dignified for maternity.  During the dry period our eye is always on that dry cow. If she ls handled by exercise, and fed for the day  the calf is to come, your eye will tell  you just the progress she is making  as your ear can tell when the, violin is  in tune.,  If her manure Is hard and knotty,  and she is fat, a dose of salts, ginger  and molasses is given her, and-always  at the time of calving is given to every  cow, and if the cow is��������� Inclined to  swollen udder, one-half pound more of  salts is given her, thirty six hours  after calving;  NATURE'S NOBLEMEN.  Those Who Are Ambitious to Be Vae*  fill Rather Than Rich.  A young man of ability and great  promise recently refused to enter a  vocation which would yield him a largej  income, lest the temptation to become  rich might eat up his desire to help his  fellow men. Fie feared that the frantic  struggle for wealth and self being  waged by the majority of men with  whom his position would force him to  associate would insensibly draw him  into the same vortex of selfishness. Fie  felt that his ideals would become tarnished, that his aspirations would be  starved in such an atmosphere, and so  he chose a vocation which would enable him to render the greatest service  to humanity.  It is a refreshing thing In a material  age to see people who are ambitious  to be useful rather than rich, wbo are  more eager to help others than to make  money. These are nature's noblemen;  these are the characters which enrich  life and which have pushed civilization up from the savage to the Florence ���������  Nightingales and the Lincolns.  One of the most promising things  about our civilization today is that,  side by side with the greed for gold, is  the ever growing passion of humanity  for good. The number of people who  prefer to be useful to their fellow men  rather than to make money is constantly increasing. This passion for  good is the salt of humanity; it is what  makes us believe in the future of the  race.  ARTISTIC TEMPERAMENT.  Defined   aa  a   Disease   That  Afflicts  Amateurs.  Gilbert K. Chesterton's "Heretics"  contains some of his keenest and most  amusing writing. Of great men he observes: "The first rate great man is  equal with other men, like Shakespeare.  The second rate great man is on his  knees to other men, like Whitman.  The third rate great man is superior to  other men, like Whistler." In the following there' may be discovered as  much truth as humor:    ������  "The artistic tem*jei*ament is a disease that afflicts amateurs.

When the Medical and Chirurgical  society of London was founded in 1S03  the barber-surgeon was still more or  less tolerated. At one 6f its early meetings one Dr. Wardrop advocated the  "excellent custom'' of bleeding patients  till they fainted, so that they might be  the subject of surgical operation while  in an insensible condition.

Q. Woman's  Greatest Need  At the Critical Period of hei* Life and How  is Best Supplied By  DR. CHASE'S NERVE FOOD  it  We are sometimes"asked why Dr  Chase's Nerve Food is so siK'-VJ-ssful  In curing the ailments peculiar to  ���������Women, and this is  ths explanation:  The -feminine organism is a regular  "^etivork of nerves, and consequently  ffquires an enormous quantity of rich  Curtailing blood.  . At the critical times such as the  ijawn of womanhood, the child-bear-  Utg and nursing age and the change  Of life, nerve force is consumed at a  tremendous rate.  The blood is drawn owov from  Itfhnr parts of the body, and the result  Is neuralgic pains and aches, failure  pf. the digestive system, and a rundown condition of the body generally.  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food supplies exactly what is most needed at these  times���������the very elements from which  rich blood and vital nerve force are  made.  Women who suffer from weakness  nnd irregularities,  from painful periods and  distressing headaches, from  tired, wornout feelings,  and the dis-  ��������� ardors of digeston, will be surprised  at the benefits obtained from the use  u<" the great food cure of Dr. Chase.  Mrs. George Fuller, Lakeland, Man.,  writes,--"I am very glad to be able  to state that 1 have received great  benefit from the use of Dr. Chase's  Noiive Food. It has cured me of nervous headache from which I used to  be a great sufferer and I am no longer  troubled with twitching of the nerves  in the arms and legs that I used to  have as soon as I went to bed. I am  grateful for this cure and shall always recommend Dr. Chase's Nerve  Food to anyone suffering as I did."  It is well worth your while to put  Dr. Chase's Nerve Food to the test,  and, while the blood and nerves are  being revitalized and the form rounded out, note your increase In weight,  so that you may have positive proof  of the blood-forming value of this  great medicine, 50 cents a box, at all  dealers, orEdmanson, Bates and Co.,  Toronto.

As a rule, the chief anxiety of a hostess seems to be how she shall feed her  ���������guest. Now, while food is necessary  and good, it is not the most important  thing in life, and a visitor ought t.o  care more for the society of her hostess than for an elaborate dessert or  complicated dish. It is of course only  natural to wish to give our friends the  best,, but lot it be the best of ourselves  rather than of material things.  The most perfect hospitality I ever  experienced was that of a college chum  Who,   some   years   after   graduating,  A BACK NUMBER.  "managed TogerTE*ee^lirssnrate"s-to-  gether for a couple of days at her summer home. On her way up from the  -station she said: "The market here is  not very good, and Hannah is the plainest of plain cooks, but we will eat just  what she provides, for I am not going  to waste any time on food while you  ���������sre here. 1 want to "spend every minute enjoying you, for wo may never  be all together again." So we had an  abundance of simple food and were  perfectly happy in seeing each other.  We four hnve never been together  again, and it. is probable that we shall  never have such another opportunity,  but. we look book on those, two days  ond (Vol that we have had ono perfect  visit.

"Son-in-law of mine, too," groaned  the hale and hearty old gentleman,  "as bright a young fellow as 1 ever  knew. I loved him as though he were  my own flesh and blood. 1 never got  such a throw down from the time I  began to work at 50 cents a day to the  present time."  "You always fold me that he was a  veritable Napoleon of finance."  "So I did, and so he is." And the old  gentleman made a sorry attempt to  laugh. "And 1 encouraged him in it.  1 must admit that.

The poultry business, properly conducted, pays far better than any, other  business for the amount of time and  money invested.

The principal subject under  discussion wus the hiring of. an assistant Latin teacher iu the high school.  "Of cdurse, professor, you understand;" the'chairman explained, "that  the necessity for a new teacher rising  as it does Ju the school* year gives us  very little choice. The board, however,  has decided unanimously upon "Miss  Daisy. Bell, room 7, of the Oak street  school.   What do .you thiuk of herV"  Professor Leigh frowned. "My actual- knowledge of Miss Bell's attaiu-  ments is limited, but she is a frivolous  looking1 ��������� young Woman. To me she  seems a rather impossible Latin teacher. Her name, Daisy Bell, in the faculty would almost' lower its tone."  He glanced around and caught tlie  covert amusement of his auditors, his  lean young face set in stern disapproval. To Professor Leigh life was  "real and earnest."  He writhed under the frivolity and  laxity of those latter days. The lightness and love of display shown by tlie  majority'of his feminine acquaintances  annoyed him. Women were sadly degenerating, in his opinion, and be was  only thirty years old.  "I know," he said stiffly, " my objection is unusual, but the girls of the  high school run to too much frivolity  themselves. Their teachers should be  of another type, if there is any. They  even have a way of wearing their  . hair in a sort, of arch'oyer their faces  so that in profile you can barely see the  tips of their noses. That Miss Bell  wears hers very much the same vray."  The board relaxed decidedly. Professor Leigh regarded them in stern  perplexity.   :  "I confess," the chairman remarked,  "that we have not particularly consid-  .. ered Miss Bell's appearance.  She grad-  ���������uatedHast^ear~ivitli^iffUBuTCi~I^tia"  recommendations.   As for her ability  1;;as a teacher; the work In room 7 of  .."���������the Oak street-school Is not easy, and  ''she lias succeeded there.   Of course if  she is not satisfactory, professor, other  arrangements can be made fpr next  year."       '."; ' 'v.j .'���������""   '  The1 professor arose. "My objections  to Miss Bell," he said, "are of course'  theoretical." Ho smiled a smile of |  such entire confidence nnd good, fellowship that it was easy to understand  his hold on the high school in spite *of  his prlgglshuess. "An-l If you say 'try  her' I shall do it with confidence lu  ..^our judgment."  Which was not quite true, for every  : day   his   soul   arose   In  disapproval  against Miss Daisy Boll.  "What could  there bo in a girl with such a 'pink and  white 'face IlufCqd around with such a  mop of yellow hair and such an Impression of -frills,'find fancy things all  about her?"x IIo trembled, too, for her  Influence In the-^a^hpol.,   Tho  girls  seemed so in(atu(i|w with her.

The  shadows piled menacingly in the corners, and she was sure she heard a  noise somewhere in the building.  She fled in a little panic from the  room to the stairs. Halfway down she  saw some one advancing toward her  from the gloom below. She gave a little shriek, then slipped and fell headlong. She heard a smothered exclamation; then some one caught her firmly  Faint with terror, she tried to regain  her feet.  "There, little one. there.

He held her closer, his face almost  against hers. "Are-you hurt?" he asked anxiously.  Then, after a. minute, his clasp relaxed, and she slipped quickly away  from him.  "I had no.idea it.was you," she said  finally in a small voice.  NEW CAMP AT PETAWAWA.  Admirably Situated For Artillery Practice���������Six Thousand Yard  Range���������  Guns Under Service Condition.  The most successful artillery practice camp in the history of the Canit-  dian militia was recently held at the  new camp at Petawawa. It is the first  time the garrison companies and field  batteries have been able to conduct j  their shell practice under service conditions. The targets are hidden and  the ranges are ample, says a Globe  correspondent. For the heavy artillery,  hamely, 4.7 guns, the target was placed on a rise of ground over six thousand yards from the gun positions. In  the case of the field guns the infantry  target varies from two thousand to  twenty-five, hundred yards distance;  while the artillery target is somewhere  in the neighborhood of four thousand  yards from the nearest observing point.  In each case the only gun positions are  behind hills, and all the shells travel  over densely-wooded, undulating country. The positions usually taken by  the field* batteries while ranging on tha  artillery .target are so thickly wooded  that the. gun's cannot be seen by the  battery commanders; in fact,,the individual guns with their detachments are  practically hidden from one another.  From the targets1 it has been impossible to come within a thousand yards  of locating the various batteries.  Many of the batteries sent their gun-,  .layers to the camp for special training  about two weeks' in advance. When  each corps arrived their layers were examined for efficiency. Only .qualified  gun-layers are allowed to lay the guns  during Bhell practice. The officers of  each battery are first sent to the targets to observe the bursting of the  shells, afterward they observe from the  firing park., Each battery is allowed  an instructional practice before entering into the competition for prizes. During the preliminary series the gunnery  Instructors point out all mistakes made  by the 'officers, and the work of each  section is closely checked by an assistant instructor. '  >, After each shell, is fired the battery  commander records his personal observation and then is informed by  telephone as to the exact point at which  the shell stuck*   This method quickly  corrects a defective observation.     In  the compilation practice no corrections  are made, but each error in ranging,  fire discipline, observation of fire, etc.,  is recorded and after the target reports  are made up, the gunnery instructors  discuss with the -battery commanders  individually the strong and weak features of the methods they employed.  __j^as������affia_axtllj|ery^am^  about fourteen miles north   of   Pembroke, near the point where the Petawawa River empties Into the Ottawa.  The railway company spells this word  P.ejewawa, and, the natives  pronounce  it Pete-wa-way.    The location of the  camp is ideal for military purposes.  The only drawback this year was in  getting to and from the camp.   Nearly  ��������� every detachment that has arrived so  far complained of the poor connections,  annoying delays and the long timo they  had to spend on the road between their  .local headquarters ajid Petawawa.

TWIN LAMBS.  The Concern of the Grower la ���������With  the Wheat Plant as a Whole.  It would not be safe to say of any  variety of wheat as the result of special experiments that so far as yield of  grain is .concerned it will prove the  most satisfactory for all localities of  all those tested or indeed for auy given  locality. Some varieties are better  adapted to certain soils than others.  A variety -will give better comparative'  yield on a given soil iu certain seasons  than It will in others.  Of the! sixty or more varieties tested  each year for the last thirteen years at  A V?t\Y to Greater Profit In Ratlin-**  Early Winter Lambs.  It is a mistaken idea for the average  flockmaster to suppose that twins aro  not profitable. It Is true that twin  lambs cannot be quite so cheaply reared as single lambs, but where it comes  to reckoning up profits at the end of  tlie year there is a decided difference  ori the right side of tlie ledger. Flock-  masters ns a rule overlook the importance of rearing twins Instead of single  lambs in tlie management of their  flocks and as a result fail to get the  most out of Vtlieir sheep. When one  considers that it requires just as much  time and practically tlie same amount  of food to keep a ewe tbat rears but  one lamb as it does tlie ewe that successfully rears two It is surprising that  more attention is not given to developing this part of the flock. Some breeds  are  not  noted  for  their  prolificacy  the Ohio experiment station it is announced that no one variety has out- i along tills line, but no flockinaster Is  "I tried to tell you," be answered  softly.  Another moment of silence followed:  then the girl sped down the hall and  out of the open door.  The professor leaned against the banister and passed his hand over, his eyes.  A new heaven and a new earth had  opened up before him.  He knew now that all bis disapproval  and condemnation had been a fight  against himself, not her. He dared to  think now of the stories he had heard  of ber gallant fight for her university  education; bow bard she had worked  and bow be had persecuted her. Poor  little thing.' And all because he was  afraid, .of himself. What a narrow  minded bully be was anyway���������and  .now?  . ���������'������������������������������������������������������..���������;      |  Kg dould not answer that. He went _  out into the spring night slowly with  bent head. He had forgotten utterly  the errand that sent him to the school-  house. He even forgot to lock tho  door.  A very erect, pink cheeked little assistant Latin teacher and a very self  conscious professor came into the assembly room the next morning. Both  the professor and Miss Daisy were in''  a rather bewildered state of mind, j  Miss Daisy shed no more tears in secret over her endangered position^ Jn  fact, a little smile was more apt to  "come. "Whenever the professor's eyes  met hers tbere was a look in them that  sent the red flaming Into her cheeks.  Possibly he could call any one "dear"  when she fell unexpectedly into bis  arms, but she did not believe It.  So Sho- dreamed those last few  spring weeks,.

The station also finds that the selection of grains for seeding, whether by  means of fanning mill or by hand,  does not seem to promise anything In  the way of permanent Improvement In  wheat. In normal seasons there is little If any temporary gain, In extremely unfavorable seasons tbe extra  amount of food furnished the young  plant by the large kerne! places it in a  position to withstand greater hardship  and ls accordingly an advantage to It.  The concern of tbe plant breeder  who \vould Improve the., wheat crop,  therefore, Is considered by the station  to be with the plant as a whole. Tba't  there is wide variation In tlio productivity of Individual wheat plants ls  very apparent. Much of this variation  ls due to environment, some of It to  heredity. Tho problem Is.to separate  tho transitory and accidental from tbe  hereditary and permahtmt. Tho out  shows a selection of Inferior and superior Mealy plants.  justified in keepiug any breed of sheep  that will not return the highest profits*  for keeping.  Quality In Fat Lambs.  The flockmaster who is raising early  winter lambs for the market can well  afford to cater to the demands of the  article which brings the most profit If  the market demands fat iambs of uniform size and weight and is willing to  pay extra for the assurance of a certain number to meet their trade th*  flockmaster cannot overlook the trad*  demands and realize the most from his  business. Some flockmasters often  wonder why it is that the smaller  bunches of lambs often bring the highest price on the market This comes  from the fact that these lambs hare  been well cared for and properly fitted  for the market  Hearing- Lambs.  A great many flockmasters seem to  think that In order to produce these  high priced Iambs only one should b������  allowed to suck the ewe. While a  great many ewes are not able to rear  twin lambs successfully alone, if given  a little assistance with the proper kind  of nourishment these ewes will come  along all right. I would not care if  every one of my ewes would drop twin  Iambs. In my own flock there are a  few ewes that are not free milkers  and unless they are properly fed and  cared for "will not raise profitable twin_  Iambs. Tbere are, however, others in  tbe flock that could well suckle triplets  with no more assistance (ban the ones  that have difficulty with two lambs.  This I account for in the breeding of  the animals.���������L. C. Reynolds in Ohio  Farmer.  AFRICAN SANDSTORMS.  ���������eedlns* Wlient After Corn.

The superficial  layers of  sand in the deserts of Africa and  Arabia often become heated to 200 degrees F. to a depth of several inches.

This  jb the only thing to do under the  circumstances and in the face of  this, it will be impossible for the  Government to longer delay aotion.
