'It's not my Idea  of a magpie,' was the rejoinder. 'Perhaps not,' replied his friend, 'but It's  God's idea of a magpie.' "  A man named Faber lay 111. " 'You  ere very ill indeed,' said the doctor.  Then you had better,' the sick man  rejoined, 'order the prayers for the dying to be read.' *No,' answered tho  person to whom he spoke, 'I think  you will live four and twenty hours.'  *Oh, in that case,' rejoined Faber, 'read  me Tickwiek.'"

Catering to animals requires both a  plentiful and varied supply of foods,  as may be seen from this report of material fed at the London Zoological  gardens last year. For the flesh eating  guests there were supplied 144 tons of  horseflesh, nearly 9 tons of goatflesh  and 9,530 chicken heads. Fourteen  and a half tons of fish, In addition to  1.2G0 pints of shrimps, furnished the  ���������water fowl with their daily fare, while  ��������� 297 loads of hay and 6;030 bunches of  greens supplied the ruminants. Other  Stems on the list were 872 pounds of  grapes, 498 pounds of sugar, 6,262  loaves of bread, 5,086 quarts of milk,  S03 pounds of crackers and more, than  83,000 eggs. The chicken heads were  iov the various members of the rat  family, the eggs were fed to the birds,  and the shrimps formed the easiest  ���������way to the affections of the flamingoes.

"It is his humility. I am told ha  (wears a hair shirt the year round."  "Is that au evidence of humility?"  JStephen asked, with an Incredulous  smile.  "Try It and see," the priest advised.  "Have you tried it, Father Burke?"

As a  fcoy runs when ho lets a kite go, so tho  flying fish makes a preliminary rush  through tho water before ascending  Into tho air. In this way as It leaves  the surface air impinges upon the low-  *r area of tho fin wings, carrying tho  ^body upward and onward with a gliding motion. The anatomical structure  ef the Hying fish Is such tbnt It cannot  ���������flap Us "wings," and so It possesses  llttlo or no guiding power whon In  -flight.

It was back in Cleopatra's time tlaat  the corset was first thought ot. Who  knows but perhaps the dusky beauty  of the Nile thought to hold Mark Antony's fickle fancy longer could she add  some new charm to her face or figure?  Anyway, it was then that the embryo corset first appeared in the shape  of a stiffened linen girdle called a  "sora." Sometimes it was worn outside the tunic, tightly laced aud much  jeweled.  Then fashion wearied of the "zora,"  nnd for twelve centuries the corset  languished.  The Greeks and Romans next held  sway, and beauty unadorned was good  enough for them.  In the sixteenth century along came  Catherine  de   Medici,   that   energetic  lady who meddled in everything, from  empires to hairpins, and she revived*  the corset with a vengeance.  She not only wore it herself, but also  issued an edict that all women of birth  and breeding should wear corsets  which should reduce their waist measures to thirteen inches.  This corset was called a "corps" and  was stiffened in every possible manner. In this the body was pinched  and forced, while over the "corps" was  clasped a perfectly fitting corset cover,  constructed of thin plates of "steel,  fashioned in two pieces and opening  on a hinge.  This instrument of torture lasted until the early part of the seventeenth  century, when more pliable materials  were adopted.  Beautifully quilted satin bodices replaced Catherine's invention.  The next change in the corset's history took place in the early part of  the eighteenth century, when leather  stiffened with -whalebone came into  use.  Since then it has gone on steadily  improving until today for every type of  woman there is a specially adapted  corset.  SOURCES OF COLORS.

Record of His Conversation With Ma  Lyttelton Just Turns Up.  Las Casas in his "Memorials ot St,  Helena" states that August 7, 1815,  Emperor Napoleon, then a prisoner on  board the Northumberland, had a long  conversation with a "Mr. Lyttelton" on  currem politics and affairs, says the  Marquise de Fontenoy. Until the other day no One knew whether this conversation had ever really taken place,  or if it was merely one of the many  inventions of Las Casas.  Curiously enough, there has Just  been discovered among the Royal archives at Dresden���������of all places In the  world���������a manuscript record of the Interview in question, in the handwriting  of the great Emperor's visitor, who  turns out to have been the Hon. William Henry Lyttelton, member of Parliament for Worcestershire at the time,  and who some twelve or fourteen years  later succeeded to his half brother's  peerage as third Lord Lyttelton, the  grandfather of the present Secretary of  State for the Colonies, of the new head  master of Eton, and of the present  Lord Cobham.  The account is quite lengthy, and  among the most interesting remarks of  Napoleon which Lyttelton places on  record is one to the effect that in his  opinion England could never afford to  permit a great power of the continent  to hold Ani-verp, which, in the possession, say, ot France or Germany, would  be a perpetual menace to Great Britain.  Just how this MS. of the third Lord  Lyttelton found its way into the Royal  archives of the reigning* house of Saxony it is difficult to say. But there is;  no doubt whatsoever that untold riches  of a literary and historic character are  hidden away in this manner in the  muniment rooms and archives of petty  rulers and great nobles on the continent, while Emperor Nicholas has among  his family archives at St. Petersburg  the entire confidential and secret correspondence of the first Napoleon  throughout his reign.  When Napolepn was overthrown he  directed his private secretary    m'   "  | Two of a Kind.  "I tell you my love for you Is making me mad���������inadl"  "Well, keep quiet about It.

Like an awkward squad obeying  "left dress" the occupants of the  sightseeing coach turned in the direction of the great red' mansion.  Suppressed expressions of awe were  clearly depicted on their faces.  Georglna Winterton, perched on the  end of the back seat, smothered a  laugh and prayed that the man would  not relate the story of the late owner's life.  1 A young man, clearly impressed by  Gfeorgina's prettiness and the natty  fashion in which she carried her blue  serge suit, swore softly to himself at  the appearance of a few flakes of  snow on his coat. He was afraid they  ���������would multiply and drive the very attractive young person below with her  fellow "women passengers.  "Before you behold, Central park,",  the guide yelled, impressed with his  ���������wn importance in imparting such a  startling piece of information.  "No one would ever have guessed  it," commented Georgina mentally, tying her veil more closely about her  face.   The, wind was turning chilly.  One by one the women sought the  Inner recesses of tbe coach until  Georglna was the only girl on top.  Secretly the man beside her admired  her pluck in braving the now fast  falling snowflakes. He fancied she  must be from the west, where a snowstorm is a common occurrence, deserving no notice.

It is not so  windy here on the inside," he said, rising and proffering a steady hand.  "Thank you," Georglna replied, making the change, with a frank smile of  relief.  Through the megaphone tbe man was  Imparting wonderful bits of information about the park. He told them everything they had known for years,  things they had learned in thoir geographies at school and things that  had beon told thOm by every one wbo  had ever visited the city. When they  came to anything really interesting  the man was silent, saving up his  breath for the next world renowned  ���������bject for inspection.  Miss Georglna was wondering if the  young man was properly Impressed  by tho sights. The young man was  speculating as to whether sho was  highly entertained by tho valuable'information bawled from the born.  Finally a negative answer to his soliloquy camo to hlra Intuitively.  "You know this park is right in tho  center of tho island," bo said.  "Yes."   Georglna was politely interested.  .

"You���������you are visiting here?" asked  the man.  "Oh, I live In the city!" Georgina  watched the interrogation mark plant  itself in the man's eyes. Why was  she on a sightseeing coach If she lived  here?  But he said not a word.  "I just came out for a lark," said the  girl. "I have often wondered what it  was like when I've watched these cars  roll along filled with open mouthed  strangers."  "Was I open mouthed?" asked the  man.  ������v.������������ ���������������  "I'm just killing time till train time,"  he said.  "And you'll remember me to your  sister when you get there," Georgina  suggested, with mischief in her eyes.  "Just remind her of the girl whom  I met on the touring coach?" he laughed. "She'll know definitely who you  are," he added, with good humored  sarcasm.  "Morningside park!" cried the man.  "Columbia college!"  "Isn't he a wonder?" asked Georgina,  seizing the opportunity to beg his  question.  "Perhaps he isn't lonely in his won-  derfulness," said the man briefly.  Georgina looked at him. "No?

When the corn is fully tasseled it contains but eight-tenths of a ton  of dry matter per acre, or only one-  fifth what it contains when fully ripe.  When in the milk it contains nearly  three times as much dry matter as  when rf uli^taspIedr70niy^g^5HteJgn~  days were occupied in passing from  the milk to the glazing stage, yet in,  this time there was an increase in the  dry matter pf 1.3 tons per acre. After  this period the increase in dry matter  is but slight.  To have the silage keep well the corn  must be cut at the proper stage of  maturity. If cut before it is sufficiently matured too much acid develops. If too ripe, it does not settle  properly, and the air is not sufficiently  excluded to prevent spoiling. Corn  should not be cut until the ears are  out of the milk and most of the kernels glazed and hard. In the cuts ear  No. 1 is in the soft dough stage. No. 2  is beginning to dent.

Some 10,000 or more years ago the  conditions which had brought about  the great ice age where beginning to  ���������change. The elevated land began to  sink, and a higher temperature slowly  f olio wed.The long winter was gradually drawing to a close, and tbe great  springtime of the world was beginning  to hasten its influence upon an ice cov- ,  ered land. Tons, rather mountains,* of  ice began to melt, and the water filled  the river valleys to overflowing. Gravel, sand and mud were borne along by  these raging waters and deposited  wherever the conditions were favorable. Ice rafts covered the surface of  the flood, bearing rocks and bowlder*  from more northern lands.  All rivers whicli had glacial sources  were greatly influenced by tlie final  melting.   As the southern part of the  ice sheet rested over northern Pennsylvania, the Delaware and the .Susquehanna were typical rivers of the  age. The rocks and gravels which line  their banks show how well they have  kept the record.  In the Delaware valley brick day and gravel are laid out  in   beautiful   terraces,   especially   at  Stroudsburg and the Water Cap. Here  the waters rose some 200 feet, and an  artificial   dam  is   supposed   to  have    ���������  formed the river into a broad lake.  The Indians, it is said, have a curious  Hegend-about^this^ood^irheyJteJl.jw________  that the "Minsies" were the first race  which dwelt here, and the region roundabout they call "Minisink," meaning  that the "waters are gone"-a vague  remembrance perhaps of the postglacial floods.

I' have had ever a curious love of  storms, and from the time when memory "began its record in my brain it has  delighted me to hear at night the roar  ������f thunder and see the swift play of  the lightning. I Iny between Uncle  Eb and the old t\og, who both went  asleep shortly. Les? wearied, I pre-  fiume, than either of them, for I had  done none of the earthing and had  Blept a long time that day In the shade  of a tree, I was awake an hour or  more after they were snoring. Every  flash lit the old room like the full glare  of the noonday sun. I remember It  showed me an old cradle piled full of  rubbish, a rusty scythe hung In the  totting sash of a window, a few lengths  of stovepipe and a plow in one corner  and three staring white owls that sat  on a beam above the doorway. The  rain roared on the old roof shortly and  came whipping down through the bare  boards above us. A big drop struck  In my face, and I moved a little. Then  I saw what made me hold my breath  a moment and cover my head with the  KhawL A flash of lightning revealed a  tall, ragged man looking in at the doorway. I lay close to Uncle Eb, imagining  much evil of that vision, but made no  outcry.  Snugged In between my two companions I felt reasonably secure and  Boon fell asleep.  The sun, streaming in  I hud a mightu fear of her.  at the open door, roused mo In tlio  morning. At the beginning of each  day of our Jom-noy I woke* to hnd Uncle Eb cooking nt the lire, lie wus lying beside uio this morning, his eyos  open.  " 'Frnld I'm hnrd sick," he said na I  kissed him.  "What's tlio mnttor?" I Inquired.  lie struggled to u Hitting posturo,  groaning so It wont to niy heart.

Uncle Eb  felt better as the day grew warm. I  had a busy time of it that morning  bathing his back in the spirits and  rubbing until my small arms ached. 1  bave heard him tell often how vigorously I worked that day and how I  would say, "I'll take care o' you, Uncle  Eb-won't I, Uncle Eb?" as my little  hands 'flew with redoubled energy on  his bare skin. That finished, we lay  down sleeping until* the sun was low,  ���������when I made ready the supper that  took the last of everything we had to  eat. Uncle Eb was more like himself  that evening and, sitting up in the cor-*  ner as the darkness came, told me  stories.  It was very dark as be finished, and  I was feeling a bit sleepy when I  heard the boards creak above our  heads. Uncle Eb raised himself and ���������  lay braced upon his elbow listening. In  a few moments we heard a sound aa  of some one coming softly down the  ladder at the other end of the room.  It was so dark I could see nothing.  "Who's there?" Uncle Eb demanded.  "Don't p'int thet gun at me," somebody whispered. "This is my home,  and I warn ye t' leave it er I'll do ye  harm."  CHAPTER V.  ERE I shall quote you again  from the diary of Uncle Eb:  "It was so dark I couldn't see  a ban' before me. 'Don't p'int  yer gun at me,' the man whispered.  Thought 'twas funny be could seeVme  -���������whfln-I~eoulda!t~see_bim.__SaidJtWM  als home an" we'd better leave. Tol'  him I was sick (rumatiz) an' couldn't  stir. Said he was sorry an' come over  near us. Tol' him I was-an.br man  goin' west witb a small boy. Stopped  in the rain. Got sick. Out o' purvi-  sions. 'Bout ready t' die. Didn't know  what t' do. Started t' strike a match,  an' the mah said: 'Don't make no  light, cos I don't want to hev ye see  my face. Never let nobody see my  face.' Said he never went out 'less 'tAvas  a dark night until folks was abed.  Said we looked like good folks. Scalrt  me a little cos we couldn't seo a thing.  Also he said; 'Don't be 'fraid of me.  Do what I can fer ye.' "  I remember the man crossed the  creaking floor and sat down near us  after he hnd parleyed with Uncle Eb  awhile In whispers, Young as I was,  I keep a vivid impression of thnt night,  and, aided by tbe diary of Undo Eb,  I have made a record of whnt was said  that is in tho main accurate,  "Do you know where you nro?" he  inquired presently, whispering as he  had done before.  "I've no Idee," said Uncle Eb.  "Well, down the hill ls Paradise valley, In tlio township o' Faraway," he  continued. "It's the end o' Paradise  rond nn' a purty country. Boon nettled  a long time, nn' Die farms nre big mi'  prosperous-kind uv n hind o* plenty.  That big houi-to nt the foot o' tho hill  Is l)nvo Urower'N. He's the richest  mnn in the valley."  "How do you happen t* be livln' here,  If yo don't niiu' tullln' nm'i" Undo Eb  asked,  "Crazy," Bnld he. "Trnlil o' every-  body, an' everybody's 'fntld o' rue,  Lived n good,long time iu this wny,  Wlnlei'H I go Jnlo Uio big woods, Cot  a camp In a big onve. m*,' when I'm  thoro 1 wo n little daylight.

"Awful-Bometltncs," ho answered  with n Bad sIrIi, "an' it scorns good f  t/ilk with Homebody besides myself.

Sometimes I  come hero nn' spend ������ day In tbe garret  If I'm cntiRht In n storm or If I hnppon  to Ntay o little too into in the valley.  Oneo In /i great while l meet a mnn  somewhere In the open, but he nlwnys  Mils nwny qukk un he am. Guess they  think Pin n ghost -duimo whnt I think  o* them."  Our host went en talking as If he  were glad to tell the M-tret* of his  heiitt t������������ wane creature of his own hind.  J hm-i* eft--n wondered nt his frank-  ������������������������������<���������* hot there wn<* it fiiiherlr tenderness, I r4iueu-.b-.-T, iu the \ulne of, Uncle  Eb, and I judge it tempted nis confidence. Probably the love of companionship can never be so dead in a man  but tbat the voice of kindness may call  it back to life again.  "I'll bring you a bite t' eat before  mornin'," he said presently as he rose  to go. "Let me feel o' your han\ mister."  Uncle Eb gave him his hand and  thanked him.  "Feels good. First I've hed hold of in  a long time," he whispered. "What's  the day o' the month?"  "The 25th."  "I must remember. Where did you  come from?"  Uncle Eb told him, briefly, the story  of our going west.  "Guess you'd never do me no harm,  would ye?" the man asked.  "Not a bit," Uncle Eb answered.  Then he bade us goodby, crossed the  creaking floor aud went away in the  darkness.  "Sing'lar character 1" Uncle Eb muttered.  I was getting drowsy, and that was  the last I heard. In the morning we  found a small pailof milk sitting near  us, a roasted partridge, two fried fish  and some boiled potatoes. It was  more than enough to carry us through  the day, with a fair allowance for  Fred. Uncle Eb was a bit better, but  very lame at that, and kept to his bed  the greater part of the day. The time  went slow with me, I remember. Uncle  Eb was not cheerful and told me but  one story, and that had no life in it.  At dusk he let me go out in the road  to play awhile with Fred and the  wagon, but came to the door and called  us In shortly. I went to bed in a  rather unhappy frame of mind. The  dog roused me by barking in the middle of the night, and I heard again the  familiar whisper ef the stranger.  "Sh-h-h! Be still, dog," he whispered. But I was up to my ears in  sleep and went under shortly, so I have  no knowledge of what passed that  night. Uncle Eb tells in his diary that  he had a talk with him lasting more  than an hour, but goes no further and  never seemed willing to talk much  about that interview or others that  followed it.  I only know the man had brought  more milk and fish and fowl for us.  We stayed another day in the old  Tiouse7^hat^Mt~liircthe~lastrand-the-  night man came again to see Uncle Eb.  The next morning my companion was  able to walk more freely, but Fred and  I had to stop and wait for him very  often going down the big hill. I was  mighty glad when we were leaving the  musty old house for good and had the  dog hitched with all our traps in the  wagon. It was a bright morning, and  the sunlight glimmered on the dew in  the broad valley. The men were Just  coming from breakfast when we turned in at David Brower's. A barefooted  little girl a bit older than I, wltb <*&  cheeks and bluo eyes and long oi*lj  hair that nhono like gold in the sunlight, came running out to meet us nnd  led me up to the doorstep, highly  amused at the sight of Fred and the  wagon. I regarded her with curiosity  and suspicion nt flrst, while Uncle Eb  was talking with tho men. I shall  never forget that moment when David  Brower came and lifted mo by the  shoulders high above his head and  shook me as if to test my mettle. He  then led mo Into, tho houso, where his  wlfo wns working.  "What do you think of this small bit  of a boy?" he asked.  Sho had already knelt on the floor  and put hor arms nbout my neck and  kissed me.  "Ain' no home," said ho. "Como nil  the wny from Vermont with nn ol'  man. They're worn out, both uv 'cm.  Guess we'd bolter tako 'em Iu n while,"  "Oh, yon, mother--please, mother,"  put In tho llttlo girl who was holding  my hand. "IIo enn sleep with mo,  mother.   Please let him slay."  Sho knelt boMldo mo nnd put her arms  ni'ouud niy llttlo shoulders and drew  mo to hor breast and spoko to mo vory  tenderly.  "Pleiiso let him stny," tlio girl pleaded ngiilu.

Editor and  Proprietor Western  Prairie, Cypress  River,  Man.  The English have a reputation for  thoroughness the wide   world    over.'  When they build, it is for aU   time. I  Whatever they essay or undertake is  "for keeps."   For    mere    temporary;  work, designed to carry them    over,  until    something    permanent can re- j  place it, they have neither use ,nor  sympathy, and,    speaking   generally,  they utterly fail to comprehend   the  conditions, necessitating the adoption  of less permanent .methods.   This, is  true in every department of   British  activity,- from   railroad   and . house  building to the making of boots, and  the same attenTionTo    thoroughness"  as a* business principle extends into  every trade,   and    profession.   Their  lawyers,.and teachers are articled for  double the period prevailing in Canada, and their artisans and craftsmen  aro nearly all apprenticed for seven'  years.   Hence, when'a man has been'  through this long period of training  he should be a competent workman, j  and when they  remove  to  Canada,'  where trade and business ideals are  rougher and readier, and where there!  is undoubtedly too great a   tendency!  to take "short cuts" to reach results, I  their influence Is inevitably towards  a more settled and   stable   business'  policy, one which looks to the future'  quite as much as to the present; and  will not sacrifice permanence to tem-j  porary present advantage.   Canadian'  printer-dom certainly derives benefit!  from the admixture into its ranks of  a liberal leavening   of   the   British  trade ideals, and in Western Canada,  where thoro is an   appreciable   percentage   of   British ��������� printers,   their  coming has resulted In many Important   improvements 'in   the   general  quality of tho work produced.  A type of tlio weu-tralned British  printer now in the ranks of Western  journalism Is found in Robert Vasoy,  the new proprietor of the Western  Prairie, puhllshed nt Cypress Rivor.  In all the mechanics of tho business  Mr. Vnsoy hns had a most varied nnd  thorough training In some of tho host  printing establishments of tho old  country. Ho Is a north-countryman  hy birth, having boon born nt Darlington, tho groat Iron and shipbuilding  town In Durham, In February, 1872,  bo thnt hn is now In his thirty-fourth  yonr. Whon ho wns thlrtoon years of  ago ho was apprenticed to George  Ibhotsnn, a. well-known commercial  prlntor.   Flvo yoars later, In 1887, ho  went North to Newcastle-on-Tjm  "where he remained another five years  with Messrs. Manson, Swan and Morgan, one of the best printing establishments in the north country. His  next move was to London, to the firm  of Alexander & Shepherd, one of the  biggest printers of the world's metropolis. This firm publishes twelve,  weekly papers and several monthly  magazines,' employing over 300 compositors and sixty machines. Mr.  Vasey remained with the firm five  and a-half years, being engaged ia  general newspaper work in all its  branches. He removed from London  back to Darlington, where, for another five years���������Mr. Vasey's business  life seems to run in five-year cycles-  he was in charge of the Book Department of Dresser & Sons. This brought  him up to May, 1903. In that month  he, with his wife and little daughter,  came to Canada. Por a year he worked with Mclntyre Bros., in Winnipeg,  in order to adjust himself to his new  environment, when he was offered  the management of the Western  Prairie in April 1904 which he accepted, and has been a resident of Cypress River ever since.  The Western Prairie is one of the  well-known local papers in Manitoba-  It has borne the impress of more than  one mind of much more than average  ability. In the days when Mr. Wal-  pole Murdoch was its editor the natural history notes appearing therein  from week to week were copied into  almost every paper of the West.  Mr. Vasey's thorough knowledge of the mechanical department  of the publishing business ensures  cleanness of typography and artistic  arrangement of display ads., which is  an important aspect of newspaper publication. His occupancy of the editorial chair has also demonstrated his  good general grasp of public questions and his possession of a good  nose for news. Under his direction  the Western Prairie promises to fully  maintain its past reputation, and to  reflect yet more fully the news and  views of the Cypress River district.  Mr. Vasey takes a. keen interest in  out-of-door sports. He is an enthusiastic football player, and vice-president of the local football club. He is  a close student of municipal politics,  and a loyal upholder of all lecal Inter1'  ests. Cypress River may be assured  of proper publicity while the paper  remains in its present hands.  Sunlight Soap is better than other soapj,  but is best when used in the Sunlight way.  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 old-fashioned way with boiler and hard rubbing.  Equally good with hard or soft water. __  Laver Brothers Limited, Toronto in  Sunlight Sonn is better than other  soaps, but is best when used in the  'Sunlight* way.

It is mentioned at least twice-in  the Bible under the name of borith at a  period corresponding to several centuries before Christ. In the Louvre ie  Paris there is an interesting old vase  of Etruscan manufacture whose age le  computed at about 2,500 years. It Is  Interesting In connection with our subject as bearing a group of children in  relief who are engaged in blowing bubbles from pipes. Though we must not  overlook the fact that certain vegetable juices are capable of being used In  blowing bubbles, it is for many reasons  moro probable that soap of artificial  manufacture was employed for the  purpose. In tbo unearthed city of Pompeii, the preservation of wbich has  been tho means of revealing to us many  antique customs, there ls to be seen a  soap manufactory, with all tho kettles  and other paraphernalia pertaining to  the busiuess; also a quantity of soap,  evidently tlie product of this antique  "soapory." The memorable volcanic  eruption, while removing a city from  tho fnco of tho earth, preserved to us  tbe evidences of a high civilization.  tomato*  'Add  ra little  rati:         of Beef,  Armour's is the beft, to  hot water���������and you  have a cup of beef tea  that tones up the sy&em j  better than any medicine.
