(Continued from last week.)
ncre^D pausea. lie naa a way or
stopping always at the most Interesting point to puff'at his pipe. It looked
as if be were getting up steam for in-
other sentence, anil these delays bad
the effect of "continued in our next"
"Kill 'im?" Uncle Eb asked.
"Licked him," be said.
"Hub'." we'remarked incredulousiy.
"Licked 'I'm," be repeated, chuckling.
"Went into his cave with a sled stake
an* whaled 'im���whaled 'im ti!! he run
fer his life."
Whether it was true or not I bave
never been sure even to this day, but
Ab's manner was at once modest and
"Should 'a' thought he'd 'a' rassled
with ye," Uncle Eb remarked.
"Didn't give 'im time," said Ab as he
took out bis knife and began slowly
to sharpen a stick.
,, "Don't never wan' t' rassle with no
bear," be added, "but bams is too
source here 'n the woods t' hev 'em
tuk away 'fore ye know the taste uv
'em. I ain't never been bard on bears.
Don't seldom ever set no traps, an' I
ain't shot a bear fer more'n ten year.
am tney've go! r be decent, it any
bear steals my vittles he's goin' t' git
cuffed bard."    <���
Ab's tongue had limbered up at last.
His pipe was well a-going, and he seemed to bave struck an easy grade. There
was a tone of injury and aggrievement
in his talk of the bear's ingratitude.
He smiled over his whittling as we
laughed heartily at the droll effect,of it
"D'ye ever hear o' tbe wild man 'at
roams round 'n these woods?" he asked.
"Never did," said Uncle Eb.
. "I've seen 'im more times 'n ye could
shake a stick at," said Ab, crossing his
legs comfortably and spitting into the
���fire. "Kind o' think he's the same man
folks tells uv clown 'n Paradise valley
there���'at goes round 'n the clearin' after bedtime."
"The night man!" I exclaimed.
"Guess 1 bet's what tbey call 'im,"
Baid Ab. "Curtis man! Sometimes I've
hed a good squint at 'im off 'n the
woods. He's wilder 'n a deer, an' I've
seen 'Im jump over logs halt as blgb
as this shanty jest as easy as ye'd hop
a twig. Tried t' foiler 'Im once er twico,
but tain' no uso. He's quicker 'n a wil'
"What kind of a look-in' man Is he?"
Tip Taylor asked.     .
"Great, big, broad shouldered feller,"
said Ab. "Six feet tall if lie's nn Inch.
Hed a kind o? a .deerskin jacket on
���when I seen Mm an' brooches an' moccasins made o1 some kind o' hide. I recol-
lec' one day I was over on the ridge
two mile er more from the Stillwater,
goin' south. I seen 'Im glttln' a drink
at the spring there in the burnt timber.
An' if I ain't mistaken there was a real
,lvo panther playin' round 'im. If
-twan't a panther 'twas pesky nigh It, I
can tell yo. The critter soo mo fust and
drew up Ms back. Then the man got
tip quicker 'n a flash. Soon 'h lio seo
me, Joenilmoy, didn't they move! Novor fee no human ������rltlor run as ho did!
A big troo hed fell 'cross a lot o' brush

'd go over a straw. I'd Uko t' know
where lie comes from, gol diiriiinod If I
wouldn't, lie's tlio eonsanule.it queerest animal 'n these woods."
Ab emphasised this lucid view of tlio
night man by an unlimited movement
of his fist that held tlio hlg hunting
knife with which he whittled. Then ho
emptied hit* pipe and began cutting
more tobacco.
"Some nays 'o *s a ghost," mild Tip
Taylor, splitting his Kontonco with a
yawn, us ho lay oa a buffalo robe In the
"Shucks an' shoestrings!" ttuid Ah.
"He looks too nat'rul. Don't bollovo no

This remark wns tol lowed by dead
���llonco. Tip seemed to luck both tour-
ago und information with which to prolong tlie argument.
f'nrnld IkiiI long liwn n sleep, anil we
woro nil worn out with uphill traveling
and tlio lack of rest, t'nclo Kb went
out to look after the horses that wero
tethered near us, Ab rose, looked up
through the treo tops, ventured a guess
about tho weather ami strode off Into

Tip had everything ready tor our
���Journey home. Each day Gerald had
grown" paler and thinner. As we
wrapped him in a shawl and tenderly
helped him into the wagon I read his
doom in his face. We saw so much of
that kind of thing in our stern climate
we knew what it meant. Our fun was
over. We sat in silence, speeding down
the long hills in the fading light of the
afternoon. Those few solemn hours in
which I heard only the wagon's rumble
and the sweet calls of the whippoorwill
���waves of music on a sea of silence-
started me in a way of thought which
has led me high and low these many
years and still invites ine. The day
was near its end when we got to tbe
first big clearing. From the top of a
high bill we could see above the far
forest tbe red rim of the setting sun,
big with winding from the skein of
day, that was now flying off the tree
tops in the west.
We stopped to feed the horses and to
take a bite of jerked venison, wrapped
ourselves warmer, for it was now dusk
and chilly, and went on again. The
road went mostly, downhill going out
of the woods and we could make good
time. It was near midnight when we
drove in at our gate. There was a
light in the sitting room, and Untie
Eb and I went in with Gerald at once.
Elizabeth Brower knelt at the feet of
her son, unbuttoned his coat and took
off his muffler. Then she put her arms
about his neck, while neither spoke not
uttered any sound. Both mother and
son felt and understood and were silent. The ancient law of God that
rends asunder and makes havoc of oui
ment, I have no doubt, but neither murmured. Uncle Hlb began to pump vigorously at the cistern, while David
fussed  with the  fire.    We were all
quaking inwardly, but neither betrayed a sign of it. It is a way the Puritan bas of suffering. His emotions
are like the deep undercurrents of the
N October following the events
of the last chapter Gerald
died of consumption, having
gj borne a lingering illness with
great fortitude. I, who bad come thero
a homeless orphan in a basket, and who
with the God given eloquence of childhood had brought them to take me to
their hearts and the old man that was
with me as well, was now the only son
loft to Elizabeth and David Brower.
There were those who called it folly
nt the timo they took us in, I have
heard, but ho who shall read this history to the end shall see how that kind
of folly may profit one or even many
here In this hard world.       '
It was a gloomy summer for nil of
us. The Industry and patience with
which Hopo boro hor trial night nnd
dny ls tho sweetest recollection of my
youth. It brought to her young faco n
tender soberness of womanhood���a sub-
tie change of expression that mado hor
all tho moro dear to me. Every day,
rain or shine, tho old doctor had como
to visit his patient, sometimes Hitting
an hour and gazing thoughtfully In his
fine, oi'ciinlomilly ashing n .pmstlon nr
telling a quaint anecdote. And then
camo tho end,
Tho sky was cold and gray In the lato
aulumii, and tho leaves wero drifted
deep In the edge of the wood In mis when
Hope and I went a wny to school to-
gHhor at Hillsborough, Uuelo Eb
drove un to our hoarding place In town.
When we bade him goodby ami saw
him driving away nhuio in the wagon
wo hardly dared look at each other for
the testis hi oiii- eyes.
David Ih'invi'i'had taken hoard for iih
at the houso of ono Solomon Itollln,
universally known as Cooky Itollln.

.boy in school. As he stood by the line *
that came marching in to prayers every
morning he would frequently pull out a
boy, administer a loud whack or two,
shake him violently aud force bim into
a seat.
The day I began my studies at the
academy I saw him put two dents in
the wall with the heels of a young man
who had failed iu his algebra. To a
bashful and sensitive youth just bujt of
a country home the sight of such violence was appalling. My first talk with
him, however, renewed my courage. He
had heard I was a good scholar and
talked with me in a friendly way about
my plans. Both Hope and I were under
him in algebra and Latin. I well remember my first error in his class. I
had misconstrued a Latin sentence. He
looked at me, a smile and a sneer
crowding each other for possession of
his face. In a loud, jeering tone he
cried, "Mirabile dictu!"
I looked at him, in doubt of his meaning.
"Mirabile dictu!" he shouted, hia
tongue trilling the r.
I corrected my error.
"Perfect!" he cried again. "Puer pul-
ch.re!  Next!"

Alberta Irrigation.
Cardston, Alberta.��� It seems that
southern Alberta will have an epidemic of canal building this year. The
decision of the U.S. government to
go on with the St. Marys project .will
shorten the water supply for the Alberta Irrigation Co., which starts at
Kimball, and delivers its first water
at Magrath, then going on to Leth-
bridge, etc. The country west of
lagrath does not need irrigating,
and in most cases is not adapted for
the system. The taking of so much
water by the U.S. will perhaps compel the A.R, and I. Co. to cut a ditch
from Belly river and running west of
Brager, carry the water over Lee's
creek and on to th$ Sb. Mary's, making a canal over twenty miles long.
Before some of this water reaches
farms that need it, it will have travelled in ditches over  seventy miles.
Another irrigation project is the
taking out of the Kootenai 2*iver to
water the old Cochrane ranch coun-
.tr^,__batwefin__the_. .Kootenai river
(Waterton on tlie maps) and' tire-
Belly. All these projects should make
a good deal pf work and throw a good
deal of money into this region, and
Cardston being the nearest town to
the- work being done on -all three
ditclves,. hopes   to  benefit   somewhat.
British Army Remounts. ���
Ottawa.���In August last the army
council in London proposed to the
Canadian government that there
should he somo sort "of an organization
in Canada whereby a supply of. horses
���might annually be placed at the disposal of the war department. On receipt of the memorandum," Dr. Huth-
brford, director of tho veterinary service, iuul General Lake, chief of staff
wore directed to' take tlio matter up.
���Nothin ' definite appears to iiuvo been
done however, and recently a communication wns received in Ottawa
(to the offeot that it was now proposed
to outer into nmuigemeiits for tho
purchase of a limited number of
Smrses in tho Dominion, durin-j* tho
bourse of tho late summer or aiifci-tiiii

is without prejudice to such later ar-
'rangomonts, based on the army council's proposition of August last, which

There is nothing that adds to the
"smartness of a shirt waist more than
an attractive stock and belt.

Btars connected with silk "hairpin" or

There are dainty cravats in cream

Collar bands of stitched kid are severe affairs, bearing on either side a

small velvet bow.
Extremely pretty is a cravat of white

shade.  A like band edges the pointed,
knotted scarf.
The stocks seen in the sketch are new
and pretty. The top design is made from .

our notice. They are expensive to buy,
but may be grown by the home gardener for practically nothing, says
Home Chat. Take an orange, cut it ia
half and remove the fruit neatly, keep-
ing^tlie peel intact. Fill one half of the
rhid with earth and plant an acorn in
the center of it; tend carefully and water when necessary. After a time the-
acorn will begin to sprout, and the roots
will force their way through the rind..
As they appear tbey must be cut off,
and the process repeated from time tt*
time until the tree is fully grown.1 A
dainty dwarf tree will be the result of
this treatment.
Blanching; Nuts.
The blanching of nuts is a process
often thought difficult because not understood. The nuts should be covered
with boiling water and should be allowed to stand for ten minutes where
they will keep hot, but not cook. Then

ter and chill them. A knife must be"
used with English walnuts because,of
their serrated surface. Pistachio nuts
are hard to blanch, and the water in
which they soak needs to actually bolt
while they are in it, although they must
not cook. V

There 'is in humankind an insensible,  but well nigh irresistible, tendency to  keep on doing the things with which  one has long been identified or associated. "The nature becomes subdued to what it works in, like the  dyer's hand", as Shakespeare noted  centuries ago, and it takes strong influences to force a break-away from . ,.   ideasrideaIs=and-condibions=an^  Its of life and work, with which a man ties of sterling worth and excellence,  ���������iias for years been closely connected-  If he sometimes errs on the side of  vivid imagination. Somewhat prone  to impulse, with high ideals and large  views, he is apt to be more concerned  with results rather than processes,  and often disregards the calls of caution and policy in the pursuit of whatever he deems the proper course to  pursue. Not, the desirable or the  merely expedient, but the right, Is  what he aims at. On matters involving principle he will neither truckle  nor compromise, and his downright  forthrightness sometimes loses him  friends and allies that a more cautious and experienced man would utilize in the advancement of the views  he desired to prevail. Mr. King is a  man of positive personal opinions,  and is not afraid to give them expression. He has the combative intellectual temperament, and enjoys a  controversy as an Irishman enjoys a  flght. He wants to "see something  doing" all the time, and when those  seasons of deadly dullness which his  soul abhors come along, and they do  come in a newspaper, as in every other business, he can generally be relied on to galvanize the neighborhood  into interest by stirring up some question, old or new, that touches the  minds, or hearts, or pockets of the  people who read his paper. He has  the true professional instinct of the  journalist. He would much rather  see and hear himself and his paper  abused and grossly maligned and  misrepresented than not be spoken of  at all. He would much prefer to be  libelled than ignored.  These characteristics suggest strong  individuality,! and this is amply borne  out by closer acquaintance with the  editor of the Brandon Times.: Beneath those traits of impetuosity and  assert'iveness that have made him de-  The Paris Academy of Medicine offers a prize every year for the discovery of a euro for tuberculosis.

Gold Abounds in the Yukon.  Toronto.���������Last summer Edmund E.  Bristol, M.P., took a trip to the Yukon, and recently he told the Empire  club of his observations and impressions. He advised his hearers to take  a trip if they wanted to get a proper  idea of the extent and resources of  Canada. For scenery and comfort in  in travel and exhilaration of climate  he could think of nothing better than  a trip through the Rockies and up the  island studded coast and over the  White pass and down to Dawson where  they grow the most wonderful vegetables in the world. The explanation  was that it was a great forcing house,  where during the summer the sun  shines twenty hours a day and the  frozen earth beneath sends a constant  supply of moisture to an uncommonly  rich surface soil. It had been said that  the Yukon had been worked out, having yielded $120,000,000, but in Mr.  Bristol's opinion it had only been  scratched. The mossy surface when  remove1 allowed the top soil to thaw  to the bedrock and by the application  of dredges to the lowlands and  hydraulic plants on the hillsides, he  believed, would yet yield millions of  dollars in gold. Besides that, most  wonderful deposits of gold, silver and  copper have bee;, discovered in southern Yukon.  I  The unwisdom and the increased,  risks assumed by those determined  to make a change in their modes of  life or conditions of livelihood have  long since become proverbial. "Let  the shoemaker stick to his last." says  the homely English proverb, and human oxperience is strewn thick with  the wrecks of once promising and  successful careers, clearly traceable  to the neglect or defiance of this elementary business principle. The  cases of men making a marked success of totally new occupations entered on, in or after middle life are  rare. Western Canadian journalism  can show somo examples, but the overwhelming bulk of "evidence points  ..in the other direction.  In tho case of an established business, tho chances aro strong that  some member of the proprietor's family will be trained and equipped so as  to carry it on in the event of the  death or retirement of the owner. Every city has Its example's of families  that for generations have beeu In the  samo business or profession. And,  as thoro have boon generations of  lawyers, and merchants and divines,  bo thero have been generations of  nowspapor mon. Tho mantle of the  father has fallen on the son, and the  traditions of policy have thereby persisted through many years.  Western Canadian Journalism Is too  young to furnish many oxamples of  the editorial pon being passod on  from sire to son, In tho wost there  aro Homo instances.

Though  he is apt to forget the first part of  Polonius' advice to Laertes, "Beware  of entrance to a quarrel", none can-  accuse him of failure to practice the  second, "But* being in, so bear thyself that the opposed may beware of  thee." With strong personal; and  sometimes original views, with good  powers of expression, a forcible style,  a good working knowledge of the  principles of government, and familiarity with the questions that constitute the Issues of Manitoba nud  Western Canadian politics, it Is no  wonder that Mr. King occupies a  high position among the younger generation of western newspaper men,  nor that his friends predict for hlra  a career for which his present position Is but the prelude.  Before assuming the editorship of  the Brandon Times, Mr. King was for  some years editor of the Bnandon Independent, the paper founded by his  fathor. Mr. Ktne;, sr., was a journalist of the British school, and endeavored to transplant to Western Can-  ada tho professional Ideals of the  motherland. He edited tho Independent with marked ability, but, naturally, it did not appeal to a Canadian  as It would havo done to a British  nudlonco. Under tho management ot  his son, aftor his doath, it became  more adaptable, though, to a large  nx'tont tho editorial traditions wore  worthily perpetuated.

Small Bobly, who had been usod to re-  ce'viii** the toys and cast off clothes ot  his oider brother, one day remarked,  "Mamma, if brother-Tom should die after  he ���������gets married, will I have to marry his  widow?'*  Tommy, aged 0, went fishing the other  day after his mother had told him not to.  The next morning one of his little playmates asked if he caught anyxhing.  "Not until I got home," was Tommy's  significant reply.  "Now, children," said the Sunday  -school superintendent, addressing the juvenile class, "I want you to be perfectly  still���������so still tha*. you can hear a pin  drop." For a moment silence reigned supreme; then a small urchin exelcnmod,  "Lot 'er drop, ouster."  "I wonder," queried small Edith, "why  a sponge is full of holes?"  "Beeause," replied her 8-year-old brother, with an air of superior knowledge, "if  it wasn't for the holes people wouldn't  know it was a sponge."  Mamie, aged 4, upon her return from a  visit to her grandparents in the country  was asked how she enjoyed her visit.  "Oh. pretty well," she replied, "but I'd  like the country much better if it wus  here iu town."  "Mamma," said 5-yeav-old Margie,  "may I go and have my picture taken?"  "No, dear," replied the mother, "I  hardly think it is necessary."  "Weil," continued Margie, "1 think yoa  might let me go and have a tooth pulied,  anyway "  Said o teacher to a small pupil, "Willie, if a bad little boy should hurt you,  would you forgive him?"  "Yes'ni." replied Wijhe, "if he could  ran faster than me."���������Chicago News.  M. i. HENRY'S  Nurseries, Greenhouses  and Seed houses,  Vancouver B.

Seated very near to nie in the raised  benches of the amphitheater was a Ger-  tnantowu woman whom I know by  sight as an enthusiastic member of tbe  Society For the Prevention of Cruelty  to Animals. She is one of those who  insist upon shdeving a badge every  time a driver uses a whip on a balky  horse and demanding an arrest  "Well, she had ber little badge on all  fight, and when the tight betwwn the  bull 'and the picadors became pretty  hot she jumped up in her seat and demanded tbat it be stopped. 'Stop this  at once,' she shouted, waving her arms.  4Sit down, Maud, and don't make a fool  of yourself!' esclahhed her husband.  But sbe Insisted upon having her own  way. 'I am a member of the Pei-n-  gylvania Society For the Prevention of  Cruelty to Animals,' sbe declared, waving the lapel of her coat that contained  tlie button.

Early in the spring the country begins to ask, "How are the crops?"  Our prosperity during tlie twelve  months following the harvest depends  in a very large measure on the answer  to this question. Out oi' the ground  comes our weath. In these yours of  abundant prosperity the farmer takes  from the earth, each harvest season,  products to the value of $4,000,000,000  and moro than a third of this enormous sum represents the two great  ���������crops of the west���������corn and wheat.  Tho .question, "How are the crops?"  becomes, therefore, each year as the  ���������harvest time approaches, ono of vital  importance, and the earlier the know-  lodge of the size and quality of the  crops, tho more valuable it is to the  commercial community. Railway  people need to know in advance, the  outcome of the harvest, that they may  prepare for tho transportation of the  crops to the markets. Bumper crops  mean big tonnage, not only of prod-  cts from the farm to the consumers,  but also of merchandise from the manufacturing towns to the farms, bought  &y the fanners with their produce.  When railway men are assured of big  ��������� ���������"wops they spend many millions of dollars for new locomotives and cars and  Kails and many millions more for the  ���������"improvement of their roadbed and the  extension of their lines into new terri-  ' &ory. The steel men are jointly interested with the railway men in the  fnarvest for one fourth of the enormous product of the steel mills of this  ��������� t-ountry is purchased by the railways.  When tho crops fail the railways can-  ���������Jsal their orders for rails and bridges  "ismd equipment, and steel descends  from prince to pauper. Then all the  big manufacturers of the country,  whether of wagons or plows, of shoes  or clothing, must know whether their  great customer, the farmer, is to have  money to spend from harvest to harvest. So it is with the merchants all  through the agricultural country.  Even more important is early know-  Hedge of the crop prospects to the  ���������bankers, who must not only finance  ���������the movements of the crops to market,  but must also know whether the harvest is to cause expansion or contraction of capital ventures through the  ���������couiiti-y. Then there are the flour millers and elevator owners, who are di-  refctly interested in the marketing of  the crops. Finally, tuere is the great  body of men who speculate in the rise  ������nd fall in commodity prices, and who  ���������frisk many millions of dollars in back-.  ~^g_tkair_ai*jnions_as_to the volume of  tho crops and tlie denianTTToTThem u5"  the markets of the world.���������Frank  ���������Fayant,  in  "Success- Magazine.-"  Worms derange the whole system.

PHENOMENON OF THE WIRELESS |  Messages Sent at  Sunrise  or Sunset!  Often   Miscarry and   Experiments    j  are to be Made.  New   York.   ���������   Wireless  telegraph i  tests are to be made for the next 30  days by officers in. charge of the var- i  ious stations established by the navy j  department, to determine, if possible,  the cause of the many failures to receive and  to send messages at sunrise and sunset..  Repeated tests have shown this to  be the case and 'it is said that the ',  navy officers were the first to make  the discovery of this strange and important phenomenon. Just why the  power of the wireless apparatus aud  sound waves should be at the lowest  ebb at sunrise or sunset, operators  say, may not be difficult to ascertain,  for it has long been known that messages can be sent by the system at  night 40 per cent, better than in the  daytime, especially when the sun is  shining. There is what is termed  frictional dissipation of energy by  day. It is also known that foggy  weather is more favorable for sending and receiving wireless messages  than clear weather; so naval officers  familiar with electrical subjects believe they will soon be able to locate  the alleged defect at sunrise.  It is an Officer of the Law of Health.  ���������When called in to attend a disturbance 'it searches out the hiding-place  of pain, and like a guardian of the  peace, lays hands upon it and says,  "I arrest you." Resistance is useless  as the law of health imposes a sentence of perpetual banishment on  pain, and Dr, Thomas' Eclectric Oil  was originated to enforce that sentence.  All churches in Manitoba have  signed petitions for better laws to enforce observance of the Sabbath.  Residents of Kings count j\, P.E.I.,  wai nt. the Scott act repealed and a  more stringent one passed.  A woman who appeared in a London  police court was described as a "pawning agent."  Dust on the Ocean.  "To talk of a 'dusty' ocean highway,  sounds absurd, but the expression is  perfectly accurate," states a writer.  "Everyone who is familiar with ships  knows that, no matter how carefully  the decks may be washed in the  morning, a great quantity of dust will  collect by nightfall. You say, 'Bii^tTie  modern steamship, burning hundreds  of tons of coal a day, easily accounts  for such a deposit.' True but the  records of sailing vessels show that the  latter collect more dust than a steamer, 'On a recent voyage of a sailing  vessel-���������a journey which lasted 97 days  ������������������24 barrels of dust were swept from  the decks! Tho captain was a man of  scientific tastes, and made careful observations, but could not solve the  mystery. Some, no doubt, comes from  the wear and tear on tho sails ai)d  rigging, but that accounts for only a  small portion. To add to the mystery,  bits of cork, wood, and vegetable  fibi'Q aro frequently found in this sea  dust.    Where does it como from?"  CANADA'S  TIME.  Photographing   Disease  Germs.  Boston, Mass.���������A discovery of great  importance in medical science has  been made by Prof. H." C. Ernest, the  bacteriologist of the Harvard Medical  School. The discovery relates to the  photography of disease germs without  the aid of chemical coloration.  . Prof. Ernest, who has been assisted  in his three years' experimentation  by Prof. J. L. Morse and W. C. Sab-  hie, has evolved a process of photographing the germs by means of the  so-called ultri-violet rays of the spectrum, so that each germ stands out  separate. Formerly this process of  discovering the size and shape of  germs was oarried on by chemical  means.  dr.    Meldrum    Stewart    Tells    How  Clocks are Kept Right.  At the meeting of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada a paper  was read on the time service at the  Dominion Observatory at Ottawa by-  Mr. R. Meldrum Stewart, M.A., who  is in charge of the service. Everyone,  from the railway management to the  man on the street, is ultimately do-  pendent on some observatory clock.  The method of determining the time  from tho stars was explained, and also the essentials of a good clock. The  ultimate standard at the observatory  winds itself up electrically ovory half-  minute. It keeps time with the stars,  and so is called a sidereal clock. The  chief mean-time0 clock which keeps  ordinary timo, is chocked daily by  comparison with the sidereal clock.  By electrical means this clock controls  a clock in each of the government  buildings, and these again actuate  dials placed in each of the rooms.  Four insulated wires run from the  Observatory to the city for this  purpose. At present there are 42 dials  in the Parliament Buildings, 60 in the  West Block and 48 in the Langevin  Block. These, with a few others,  tnake up a total of 214 dials.  All German soldiers must now learn  to swim.  Minard's   Liniment  Cures   Distemper.

If there happens to be a Cleopatra  in Muscat she will never fascinate any  Anthony by the beauty of her well-  shaped nose, for it is kept in a specially made, ugly case, in which it is impossible to tell its shape.

It is bolioved, however,  that tho 2,000 tons    additional    displacement is  not sufficient;  at least,  Much an opinion i.s   oNprusM-d by certain nnvnl olIicei'N, including "Ronr-Ad-  iniral Cnpps,  the chief onnstviietor ol  tho navy.    Jt is pointed out that ii  tho diKpiiieemoiit of the new bnltleship  is to be increased, it might as well bo  mado 20,000   tons,   It is   considered  that tlio 2,000 tons extra will not give  tho benefit of snood and incronsed buttery which will'   ooinj-oiiHiito   for tho  oxtra cost of tlto onlnrgoniont.

The sand was white, the breeze  caressing, and Dorothy seemed unusually susceptible. I.judged it to be an  auspicious time to declare my feelings,  so I began:  "Dorothy,dear, I have wealth through  no fault of my own, social status ditto  and a moderately good disposition. I  love you.  Will you mar"���������  To my surprise, Mistress Dorothy  sprang to ber knees, crying, "Don't,  don't!" and clapped her small hand  over my mouth.  "Very well, then, I won't," I said to  the circumstances,  "Oh, but I want you to!" was the  next astounding development, while  she dropped down on the sand again,  bowed her head and wept.  I thought I was used to Dorothy's  moods, but I realized then that my  knowledge concerning them was small.  As I didn't know what else to,do," I  just sat still. Finally she raised her  head from the sanctuary of her hands  and looked at me reproachfully.  "Oh, George, I've been waiting a  Whole year to hear you say it, and now  why couldn't you have said it differently?"  I sat up a little straighter. "How  should you wish me to approach the  Bubject?" I inquired coldly.  "Of course you don't understand,  poor boy!" she sighed, poking back behind her pink ear a little damp brown  curl. "I have a chum at home, and  we were always thinking of something  that no one else would.

I asked.  She looked up eagerly. "Oh, you  haven't said it yet. you kuow. I stopped you. Do yon suppose you could  think of some original way?"  "Well, I'll try mighty hnrd.

"And if I do you are going to marry  me right away and let me go home  with you," I went on, ignoring the reproach of her remark. "I deserve something for all I've gone through."  She didn't say yes, but, on the other  hand, sbe didn't say no, so I felt fairly  confident.  "Echo mountain," called the conductor. "Change cars for Alpine "tavern.  Five minutes' wait."

Insects On House Plants.  Perhaps the most common of all nar  well as the most readily routed is tha  red spider, so small that it seems more  like brick-dust than a .living Insect  until placed under ihe lens. It genor*  ally chooses the lower side of tho  leaves, but is readily overcome by  spraying. A dry room breeds tha-  splder, and moisture It cannot endure-*  Spray or sprinkle the plants often and'  it will never annoy. If plants are oncer  infested, a sprayer with a bent neck is  greatly to be preferred, ns this easlls  reaches the under side of the leaves.  Small white worms In the soil   aw������"  directly traceable to small block flies*.-  which may be observed Hying about'  among   tho   plants,   and   especially  abundant If the pots are allowed to get*  dry. Saturating the soil   with   lime-  water will destroy the worms, but Hi"  must bo dono thoroughly to bo effective, Copperas water Is nnolhor simple ���������  remedy. Sprinkling black popper oven-  the soil will also rout them.  Tho scale Insect Is a common post*,,  congregating on the under sido of tho  loaves, usually following midrib tino":  veins, Washing In suds removes th������  Insects, and if tho plant Is at oncei  rinsed with clear water ^ will not h**  Injured by the process.  The mealy bug Is even worne, multU  plying moro rapidly and being even  moro persistent though similar lit  habits. The best remedy Is to apply a  tiny bit of nlcohol to each.  Ivory soup is highly recommended  ns nn Insectiohle, Carbolic soap, whlob-  muy ho mu do nt home hy dissolving te  .little carbonic aeld with a bar of any  pood I'niiiilry soap kIuivoiI Jko, Is quito  lis effoctlvo.
