Do you remember when she cut  oif her hair in a rage because it was  brown and straight instead of yellow  end curly like mine?"  "Now, I call that mean of Julia," Eugenie thought, her face growing crimson as she heard them laugh. If she  had not shut the window just then she  might have heard the doctor's answer.  "No one but Eugenie thinks ber faco  Isn't good to look at."  By and by Julia ascended the stairs  end tapped at her cousin's door.  "Dr. Hunt hns his auto here and  wishes us to ride with bim. Get your  bat and come on."  "Thanks, I have another engagement."  "All right," answered the widow  sweetly. "I'll try to mako up for your  absence."  "J don't doubt It," observed Eugenie,  .. Mrs. Knox went down Ave steps aud  paused. She wrinkled her white brow  unbecomingly, sighed and wont back.  "Honoy," she culled softly, her pretty  lips at the keyhole, "did no one evot  tell you thnt along with the Barnett  nose you inherited tho Barnett trick of  ranking folks llko you?"  Eugenlo's grim features relaxed,  ���������"Good little Julln," she sighed as the  red auto pufl'ed away.  Hor mind trnlletl back Into the past.  She was-a llttlo, dark faced girl again,  playing with Frankie Huut, ber sworn  champion until her cousin, Julia Epps,  camo to school. Forsonlflod daintiness  was Julln Epps, from tho blue bow on  bor yollow curls to tbe bluck bows oa  bor tiuy slippers.  Ono miserable, lonely noon hour Eugenie peered around the beech tree  where she and he had always played together and saw something the memory  ot wblcb even aftor a dozen years  made a green flame leap into the woman Eugenie's eyes, Frnnkle Hunt  *#ns putting on Julln Epps' finger tlie  ring which be bad been digging out ot  ��������� black button for ber, Eugeute Bar-  nott.

"You'll see," JSxiaenlo replied darkly.  That night Eugenie braided her somewhat curtailed tresses into numerous  tight llttlo braids,   Next dny, arrayed  In the now drem-how well she remembered the gay plnlds-wltb fluttering rlbbous, kinky loch;- and thc mien  ef a conqueror, she entered tbe school-  room after tbo other children were  leatcd.  With cleverly tmuraed carelessness  ���������he glanced in Julia's airecnon. xuas  young lady was wearing the same  dress she had worn several times before, and, glory, that same old white  npron! Eugenie wore no apron. She  had been forced to start with one, but  It was lying ingloriously under a stone  In a fence corner. Retribution lay  iFitbin its crumpled folds, but retribution could wait  Just before recess she looked at  Frankie Hunt. His eyes had been fix-  ������d upon her all the morning, and now  he smiled entreatingly. Eugenie modestly lowered her eyes. At recess she  itnyed In her seat, beinrr *������������ry busy  with her geography. Frankie Hunt  was tying a refractory shoe string.  When the teacher was out of sight be  jumped over four intervening desks to  Eugenie's seat  "You look awful nice, Genie. Will  you be my girl?" he said.  And Eugenie answered solemnly, "If  you'll cross your heart and hope to die  you'll always love me better'n Julia  Epps."  Tbe woman Eugenie laughed and  , came back to the present.  . "History sometimes repeats itself,"  she remarked. "I don't see now why  Julia Knox"���������  A. half mile from Mrs. Knox's cottage tbe red auto, puffing,back, came  upon a surprising sight. A young woman, looking at once defiant and apologetic, her white dress mud spattered  and blood stained, her brown hair  blown about by a saucy sea breeze,  stood by the roadside holding in her  arms a dilapidated yellow mongrel,  one leg swathed stiff in plaid silk bandages.  "Eugenie^ where in the world are  you going with that dirty dog?" shrilled the widow.  "Home," answered Eugenie laconically, turning toward a short cut across  the hill.  "What's this?" and Dr. Hunt stepped  out of the auto. "Broken leg, eh? Well,  old fellow, you are in luck to get a  capable surgeon in your hour of calamity. Silk bandages, too. I wonder if  the splints are gold or ivory."  "1 had forgotten my handkerchief, so  I had to use my neck ribbon," she explained, starting to go.  "Get in here, Genie!"

Tlio  Champery region is in the southwestern part of the Canton Valais, the village of Champery itself being at tbe  foot of the Dent du Midi, well known  to Lake Geneva toiiriSts.  The men of Champery are noted for  their lazy habits, and beyond acting as  guides to mountain climbers In the  summer months they. lead an absolute-  ly idle life. The women perform all  the hard labor required of a mountaineering people. It is they who pasture  the cattle on the steep and often dangerous Alpine slopes, cut the timber  and mow the grass. It ls a usual  sight to see a Champery woman, her  daily toll ended, returning to the village dragging her husband on one of  the wooden sleighs in general use  throughout Switzerland, her lord and  master all the while lazily smoking his  pipe.  Under such circumstances it is riot  surprising that the women of Champery should have adopted the masculine attire. Their costume is of the  simplest kind���������a jerkin o,f rough, dark  blue material, with trousers to match,  and a red foulard to protect the head.  While desperately practical, nothing  more unprepossessing in the way of  feminine dress could be imagined than  this costume of the Champery dames  and damsels. Moreover, these wives  and mothers of Champery, who are accustomed to all the, work generally  supposed to be the lot of the sterner  sex, not unnaturally seek what consolation they can in masculine comforts.  Chief among these is the short briar  pipe, which they all smoke and evidently enjoy as much if not more than  their husbands and fathers.  POOR TROMBETTI!  Tbe  Snd  Tnle of  tlie  Vrottittaor and  '   tine Jouriinlimt. '  Trofessor Trombetti, whose praises  were so much sung in'the foreign press  lis knowing the 'greatest number of  languages of any one ever born, relates  an anecdote of himself .-'which occurred  just after he Was "discovered." Ia  Rome he was .��������� so' pestered by journalists that his patience at last gave Avay,  and when cornered by the gentlemen  of the press his language became distinctly lurid.  One day as he was coming out of the  central    postoffice   a   frank    looking  young man stepped up to him, and,  holding out his hand, suid: "I am so;  glad  to make your  acquaintance;  I(  have been trying to find you for days."  "And may I Inquire with whom 1 am  speaking?"   "Why, I am X!   Not a  near  relation to  be  sure,  but  near  enough to offer you congratulations,"'  etc.    Professor Trombetti,  reassured,'  and glad to get hold of some one to  unburden himself to, took the strau-i  ger's arm, and, as they went down the.  street,   gave,   in   emphatic  terms,   a'  description of his sufferings, his opinion  of  journalists,  and,  incidentally,  much information about himself which  the papers had been vainly sighing for.  Finally they parted with nn engagement for dinner the next evening.  That night the professor was sitting  tranquilly in a restaurant, tlie observed  of all observers, when suddenly he was  seen to spring to his feet with a smoth-  ered exclamation. His friends crowded  about for an explanation, but he could  only sit down weakly and point to his  newspaper, the GiornaI.e d'ltalia.  There, in large print, were his imprudent revelations of the afternoon. He  had been "done" by a journalist���������Pall  Mall Gazette.  POINTED PARAGRAPHS.  to lick Eugenie's face. Her pulse leaped as she met the doctor's eyes.  *'You did It scientifically, and yon  aren't a bit pale. Shouldn't you like  to be a doctor?"  "Or a doctor's wife?" suggested Julia  Knok, a trifle maliciously.  "Will you, dear?" be asked eagerly,  watching tbe color flood ber dark  cbeek, "Will you be this doctor's  wife?",  "Well!" said the pretty widow explo-  slvely, "I guess I'm not needed here.  Eugenie, if you can guarantee that  little beast not to bite I suppose I can  take bim borne lor you."  "I can't," said Eugenie happily, starting for the third time across the bill.  "But," interposed the doctor, "you  haven't answered my question. Will  you be my girl, Genie?"  She looked back at him with radiant  eyes and answered with mock solemnity:  "If you'll cross your heart and' hope  to die that you'll always love me better'n Julia Knox."  back and was both literally and figuratively an oyster on four legs.  THE COOKBOOK.  A loaf of stale bread is almost as  good as when newly baked when  wrapped closely in a towel and steamed  through thoroughly.  Do not invariably throw away tbe  oil from the can of sardines. It is a  very good substitute for butter when  codfish balls or made over dishes of  fish are on hand.  The fishy taste can be removed from  canned salmon or lobster by putting it  in a colander, pouring boiling water  over it and then lotting it stand long  enough to drain,and cool.  COLLEGE AND SCHOOL.  Business, like your salary, might always be better.  The croquette is the old fashioned  hash ball after it gets into society.  Some people are too insistent on the  right to be fools in their own way.  ���������When-a-young-man-refuses-to-work,  that is the beginning of all his other  troubles.  When yon abuse a boy for being  worthless, remember how worthless  you were at his age.  Some people say farming is so much  easier than it used to be. Still, if a  farmer does his duty even in these  days he knows he has a job.  There is a good deal in print about  the contagious laugh, but how often  do you hear it? The writer of this  knows but two people of all his acquaintance who have a laugh that is  contagious.  THE PERFECT NUMBER.  lit* Hnd Her Wny.

Will yon kindly permit me space in your  P>per to expose a falsehood whioh is commonly believed in this age, I have heard  many intelligent people bay, with an air of  Authority, that the reckoning of time has  bfen lost sight ot amongst the Jewish Tribes  and along down through the Dark Ages, so  now, no man can tell which day of the w ek  the Original first day or Seventh day cotios  on* therefore pcopie are now <v liberty  to choose for themselves, which day they  keep m the Sabbath, so long as they keep a  Seventh part of time. When I heard this  publicly declared from the pulpit, a pi ico  where we expect to get the truth declared,  tt surprised me, and caused me to investigate for myself. I soou discovered from  the Bible and History that this assertion  waa false,  How if tny readers will follow mo, I wil'  give them the bent-fit of my researches, and  will point out the truth to them as briefly  jt>s possible.  In the first place, let us take the Bible,  ���������*ud in thp Life of Christ which is a key to  tmlock all mysteries, and a Light cast upon  #11 dark places we will find in St.  John 1:  .1-3 we find Christ was in the beginning and  a.11 things were made by him, therefoiehe  vvas Creator* in Colossiana 1; 16 we art- told  -ill things were made by him and for him  Jfow 1st us turn to Genesis 1.: 26 it says  " Let ns mako mam " which shows God the  Son ww with God the Father creating God  not only made man, he also made Day and  "Night.  And numbered the days as you will  find thus; And thb evening and the morning  were the first day Gen. 15 and the evening  and the morning were the second day Geo.  1:8   and the evening and the morning were  the third day Gen.   1; 13,  and so on all  through the week of seven days,   marking  the fourth in Gen. 1; 19 the fifth in Gen. 1:  ������3; the sixth in Gen. J; 31. In Gen.   2;   3  wo see that God rested on the seventh day  aud sanctified it. In the next verse we see  the Son of God takes the appellation of  "Lord God "; by this name, he is  known  down through the Ages: And this accounts  fur tbo seventh ( the Lord's rest day ) being  called the "Lord's day " in Revelations 1:  10.    Let us now turn to 1st Oorinthiaus 10:  1-4 which says ''And that Rock waa Christ'  showing   that Christ;   the L rd   God accompanied Moaes leading  the Children of  Israel through   the wilderness.    How as  Christ the Creator, known to the ancient  people as tbe Lord God  accompanied   the  children of Israel for forty years; let see if  he expected them to keep any account of  time; if you read Exodus 16: 22 to 30 you  will plainly see that Chr st not only required  tie  people to notice and observe the  number oi paoh day, but he gave thein and  all mankind an object lesson by he (himself)  working each day of the six in giving out  the manna, he observed each day, according  to it* right number and order, for example  Christ gave them, two  portions,   on  thu  /sixth day; and expeoted them to gather on  -that; day enough for that day and the next;  as he gave none on the seventh; so if they  t died to obey, they would go hungry on the  suvuuth  day. Let us hasten on over  time  and see what Christ thinks about this im  pnrtant  question;   almost  nine    hundred  yoi|.rn Ill-tor, horo { Ho tolls ns, he has no  forgotten tho ohildrun uf Israel's rebellion  againat this command, and entreats  thesr  people not to do liko thoir father's but to  observe time as ho taught them to, and to  remember the sign he gavo them to dis iu  gl*ish them from th������ heathen,) we find thin  in  Ezekiol  20: 12-20 also Sao. 221 20 28.  where he complains  of  tho priests ( who  ought oipaolally to obey) puking no difference between  thoso  days,   ho  created,  numbered, and ooinman4ed them to ob-iervti  tfexb we tHra to Matthew 28:1 we   oo tho  saobath is still tho seventh Luko 4:16 tolU  us | w-t* Christ's custom to go to tho synagogue ou the sabbath to road tho sorip-  turd*, Ivuke ?3:/50 tells ua tho imbbatli tb y  kept at that time, was tho seventh day sub.  bath or the sabbuth according to the com  maadment,   And if you will uow look at  yonr reference hero in your JJiWo It will  lefer you book to the i'h oommaudmeiit n  "dixodu* 20;10. this shows thero has been u  e)04U apoount of timo kopt since creation  nntl uot one day has beon lost down to tin  crucifixion.

A successful diver must possess grent  courage and nerves of steel. Such a  man connected with a large wrecking  company was visiting some years ago.  the pearl fisheries in the gulf of California, where sharks abounded. On  one of bis trips in quest of tbe pearl  oyster he bad a narrow escape from a  fearful death.  He had been instructed never to stir  from the bottom until he had looked up  and around. Fortunately he heeded the  advice. Having tilled his bag he glanced  quickly about and caught sight of a  huge shovel nosed shark watching hira.  In an emergency men think fast. Near  tbe diver was a large rock. Ho moved  quickly to tbe other side of it, hoping  to dodge the ferocious monster, but the ���������  maneuver did not work. The shark  watched every movement, changing hia  position by a slight motion of hia powerful tall.  Timo was precious, and the diver  conceived the idea of blinding tbe  shark by stirring up the mud. Under  cover ofrthat he might escape. He  worked for dear life and had the water  thick with mud in less than half a minute.  Slipping around the rock again, he  rose to the surface, having barely  etrength enough to reach the side of  the boat, and was hauled on board just  as the voracious man eater made a  tush for him.  Bring- tbe  Ends Together.-  A certain colonel somewhere in the  rsoutb (no matter where) was in the  habit of telling yarns and greatly ex  aggerating." He had u negro servant-"  who corroborated everything his master told. One day the colonel had  Boine gentlemen to dinner, and they  were enjoying some fine venison very  much. The colonel said: "Yes. I wunt  hunting the other day and saw a tine  buck. I took a good sight at bim and  shot bim through the bead, and the  bullet wont through his hind leg."  The gentlemen looked at ench other  b little mystified. The negro scratched  bis bead and at Inst said, "Yes, Indeed,  gemmeu; just as massa raised the gun  to shoot de buck he raise his bind log  nnd scratch his ear, and the bullet  went through the head and right  through de hind leg." The gentlemen  looked more satisfied.  After the guests bad gone the negro  enld to his master, "Gorry mighty, mas-  ea( next time you tell one of doui yarns  do get the ends closter togedder. 1  hud hard work to make both ends  meet."  Evplnlned Ills Meanlnnr.  In a case of ussnult and bnttcry before Judge B. in the quarter sessions  court; n woll known doctor who was a  witness said he hnd treated tho prosecutor for a blnck eyo.  "What do you menn by n 'black  oyo?'" asked the attorney for the defense.  "I raonn." said tho doctor, "that the  prosecutor hnd received n severe contusion over tbe lower portion of tho  frontal bone, producing extensive ec-  cbymoRlB around tho oyo, together with  considerable Infiltration of the mibja-  cent areolar tltwiit-."

OHlCOPtJ** ff.UA, MASS. U.8.*. Alec Bruce turned around slowly ou  the piano stool and faced the five girls.  "Probably you girls are uot aware  of it, but our tviend Jack has been  adopted"���������  Jack Hawarden's honest face clouded.  "Don't, Alec!" he protested.  "Jack," said Alec solemnly, "we are  bidden not to hide our light under a  bushel. You're trying to hide yours  in a pill box, and I shall tell the girls  the whole story."  "I came to see Mrs. Gray," said Jack,  rising. "I will find her upstairs, I  think."  As he passed Bruce he whispered  fiercely, "For heaven's sake, Alec, keep  that thing to yourself!"  Alec smiled and nodded, but as soon  as Jack had disappeared he continued  seriously. "It's ca thing you ought to  know, girls, and I'm determined you  shall. Jack is too modest���������an uuusual  trait in an Englishman," he added  thoughtfully.  "Forget that you're Scotch and let's  have the story!" cried the girl who  wrote stories.  "Sure. I'll begin right in the middle  so as to reach the denouement sooner.  Our Jack is in love"���������  Laughing exclamations of incredulity from the listening girls.  "He is���������honest. 'His soul is tuned  to sweet accord with peerless strains  of"'���������  "Never mind his soul," interrupted  Kathleen again. "Tell us the story."  "This isn't a wild Irish story, Miss  Clyde," he returned, with an air of  impatience.' "This is the story of a  slow moving and a particularly slow  speaking Englishman. He hasn't told  his love, because the young lady is  earning a fine salary and is seemingly  happy0 in her work, and his position  was far from satisfactory. But the  first of the year he was promoted,  with a generous increase. He was  -screwing-^up-his^courage!L_(hei'e_Aiec,  paused and. made a strenuous imitation of a person using a screwdriver)  "when he received a message from  the immigration authorities that  changed all his plans."  The wily story teller stopped as if  the narration were cemplete.  "Do go on!" cried some one Impatiently.   "That surely isn't the eudV"  "What could the immigration authorities want of Mr. HawardenT exclaimed another.  After much urging Alec continued:  "When Jack went to the immigration  office he found a clean, decent looking  old Englishwoman, who fell upon his  neck and called him her dear nephew  and announced to the officers that he  was the living Imago of her dear dead  brother, Jock. Now, Jack hasn't a Jiving relativo and never had am aunt,  and he tried to explain this to the old  lady and to tho oflicers. But sho would  havo nono of it, and tho olliccrs told  him very gruflly that if he didn't intend to support his aunt to say so at  onco, for in that case the woniau would  have to bo deported. She broke down  nt this and cried in the most pitiful  way, and���������woll, It euded in Jack's talcing her away with him. Ho has a  room for her in tho house where he's  boarding and is doing his bent to mako  her, comfortable. He spends most of  his evenings with her, and the old  creature is us happy as can bo."  "Jack's a brick!" exclaimed Kathleen excitedly.  "It Is certainly very noble of him,"  said tho editor warmly.  "Can't ho Iind the real nephew?" asked tho artist,  "No. Ho has visited every nn ward en  in tho city, and nono has any knowledge of tho old lndy. IIo has found  tho record of the death of a John Hawardon who camo from England twenty yonrs ago and who dlod shortly after  hie arrival."  ���������'That was undoubtedly the real  nephew," said the girl with tho violin.  "Au old poraon does iiiot realize tlio  elinuge there would bo In a young  mnn. Sho would expect her nephew  to look as be did when ho left England, aud nlmost tiny big blond  young Englishman would com-npond  to tho plcturo sho hns cnri'lod In hor  memory all theso years."  ll������M..,f    ,1  ��������� r.'l     T^.

"I���������I think Mr. Hawarden Is doing  right," she said softly, "only he  ought"��������� She stopped, with flushed  cheek and shining eyes, for Jack Hawarden stood in the doorway,  "Alec," he cried reproachfully, turning to his frieud, "you've told!"  "Jack," relumed Bruce, spreading  out his hands tragically, "I have���������all  except about the pill box���������and. that I'm  going to. tell now."  "Alec," protested., Jack desperately,  "you're really going too far���������you'v* no  right"-  "That's where your ideas of right  differ from mine," said Alec coolly, "I  have my instructions from the 'negotiable h'aunt* herself, and I intend to  carry them out. You see," he continued, turning to the interested little  group, "I've called frequently on the  old lady, and she has taken a great  fancy to me as the friend of her dear  Jack. Last night she gave me this  little box and asked me to give it to the  young lady of Jack's choice, with the  request that she make use of it in  furnishing a home."  He took from his vest pocket a tiny  flat box of tin, hardly more than an  inch square, and held it out on the  palm of his hand. It was sealed by  having a thin strip of paper pasted  over the joining of the box and ita j  cover. I  "I suppose it never occurred ������to the '  old  lady  that  a  great,  big,  hulking \  leather head," lingering lovingly over  the words, "like Jack had not dared  to tell the young lady"���������  No one spoke. Hawarden sat in horrified silence. Finally Kathleen Clyde  broke out earnestly, "It's a will, of  course, leaving Mr. Hawarden a fine  estate in England, nnd"���������  Hawarden  pulled   himself  together  and came to Bruce's side, trying to i  smile. |  "There's no one to leave me an estate, Miss Clyde. I really haven't a  relative in the world, and my parents  were poor people. I think the old  lady is not in her right mind. I fancy  that what Alec calls a box is really a  sort of tin locket and probably contains a portrait of her lost nephew."  He paused as if to gather courage  to go on, and his face paled.  "I'm sorry, you know," he said slowly, "that Alec has told the story, but  there is only one truthful way for me  :~to*-ftniS'lrit"  ~������������������������������������  m tms way, to tne nest of my belief,  that my transformation into a painter  was gradually effected."  No Sale Recorded.  The sad faced young man knocked  timidly at the door of the suburban  house, and presently it was opened by  a woman with a stony eye. (i  "I~I beg your pardon," said the sad  faced young man in confusion. "I see  I have made a slight mistake. As a  matter of fact, I have here a most remarkable work on 'How to Become  Beautiful and.Remain So.' Its price is  50 cents, and���������but I can see, madam,  that such a work would be useless to  you; you have the secret already. Perhaps, however, there may be another  of your sex in this house to whom the  priceless book would be of value?"  "Yes," said she of the stony eye,  "there is." And she disappeared. In a  few moments she returned, and with  her came a fifty pound bulldog.  The sad eyed young man slid down  those steps like a thunderbolt in strict  training, and as he flew he heard the  voice of the atony faced woman: "This  is the only one in this house your  book's any good to. Next time you  < ome talk to her, and don't try any of  jour flattery on me."  THE PLANET MARS.  The Tents Ideal.  The true ideal that should fill a man's  heart and fire his energies is excellence  In his own sphere, the living of his  own particular life just as fully and  nobly as he���������not somebody else���������can.  True, this is an unknown quantity, but  it is a real and,attainable one. Day  by day it is rising, and day by day a  man may feel' conscious of increased  pow**>.r. Whither it may lead him he  canviot tell, but that by its guidance he  will go farther aud accomplish more  than by any other he may rest assured.  Attempting nothing impossible, he is  doomed to no inevitable disappointment, nor is there any limit at which  lie may cease to strive.���������Self Help.  What We Know About Its Physical  and Climatic Conditions.  We can draw all the geographical  configurations, seas, coasts, islands,  peninsulas, mouths of rivers or canals  of Mars with accuracy, and we can anticipate what district will appear in  the lens of the telescope, for the length  of the rotation of the planet is known  to the hundredth part of a second, As  the planet turns upon its axis more  slowly than ours, the calendar of the  inhabitants of Mars is composed of  two consecutive years of 668 days and  a Wsextile one of 669 days.  It is not many years since Mars entered into the sphere of our observation. And one can also say that there  Is but a small number of the inhabitants of this world who have observed  it in all its details, and of these the  most experienced is Signer Schiaparel-  li, director of the observatory at Milan.  The geographical map of the planet  Mars has just been made with infinite  care by the above mentioned astronomer. O*^ might really consider it a  terrestri.^phere of continents, islands,  coasts, peninsulas, gulfs, waters. Moreover, clouds, rains, inundations, snows;  seasons, winters ana summers, springs  and autumns prevail as they do here,  and the intensity of the seasons is absolutely the same as with us, the Inclination of the axis being the same as  ours.  Our problem of the habltability of the  stars is limited to observing the celestial bodies upon which the conditions  are such that organized matter can exist in a durable form.  In tbe planet Mars the density of a  cubic meter of water, earth or any  matter is only the seventeenth of what  It is here, and the weight is oaly  thirty-eight one-hundredths. i. kilogram transported to Mars 'would  therefore only weigh 878 j-rams  there, and a man or woman Veigh-  ing seventy kilos would only Veigh  twenty-six there. The years\ are  nearly twice as long as upon \ our  planet, and the climatological cobdi-  tions seem much more favorable t\an  they are here.  The conditions necessary to life a\  we know, multiform, as the structu\  of the organic matter is so complicate  ���������Camllle   Flammarion   in   Harper'i  Magazine.  The "Plafl-ae of Women."  When the war between Japan and  Russia broke out the Japanese government did not desire the assistance of  foreign nurses.  A certain number of American nurses  went to Japan. They were received  with courtesy and compliments by the  polite officials at Tokyo. But the New  York Medical Record says that "the,  medical department of the Japanese  army has been frightfully embarrassed  by their attentions." It declares that  their ignorance of the Japanese language and their inability," to eat Japanese food or to live in Japanese style  have proved an almost complete bar to  their usefulness.  The London Hospital unfeelingly remarks, "Nurses should show more discipline when wars occur, or, they may  come to be classed with the 'plague of  women' type."

If you owned a Chatham Incubator your wife oi^yqur daughter could attend to it  He took the box from Bruce's hand  and passed it to Miss Stuart, saying  only, "Will you open the box?"  Her beautiful eyes filled with tears,  and, with trembling hands, she tried  to break the seal. Peace Gray handed  her a palette knife, and as the cover  flew off they all crowded around.  "It's nothing but n postage stamp!"  cried Kathleen Indignantly. "The horrid old woman! I'd like to throw it  into the fire!"  Miss Stuart dropped the box and  ran from the room, and if any one noticed that Hawarden followed hop no  one was silly enough to speak of It.  "Give, me that stamp, Kathleen,  quick!" commanded Miss Falrlle. "The  old lady's mind is all right," she added after a careful examination, "and  so is her gift. This is a four cent blue  Mauritius of the Issue of 1847 and Is  worth at least $7,000. Tho 'negotiable  aunt' has made Jack an easily negotiated gift"  Hnwnrdon heard tho joyous exclamations that followed Miss Fnirllo's  announcement'and enmo Jn, holding  Miss.Stuart, blushing and embarrassed, by tho hnnd,  "Are you sure, Miss Falrlle?" he  asked nnxlously.

That is more than many anblheFde^rtrnent of  your farm produces which occupies a lot of your time and represents considerable money invested.  Let us figure it out.  A No. 2 Chatham Incubator holds from 100 to 120 eggs. Though an average hatch is eighty  per cent, we&will deduct some to pay for oil and feed and make up for accidents. Say 80 chicks out  of 120 eggs. That is a fair average. Suppose you only take off eight hatches in a yearn That is  640 chickens.   They are worth about a dollar a pair.   That is $320.00 profit frou a  CHATHAM INCUBATOR  ���������vV'W ��������� , ��������� ��������� ���������,"���������'-',..'..        ���������' ./> ,.-.;.-*.    ,  on which you have not as yet been asked to pay one cent.  There is always a big demand for poultry. It is increasing every year.* The value of the  poultry exported to Great Britain, in 1896 was $18,992; in 1902 it had increased to $239,986. One  English poultry house say they could handle 36,000 chickens a week. The increase in the  Canadian* demand has been even greater, poultry exporting firms getting such good prices here  that they didn't need to ship them. The demand for poultry is ever increasing. That means  continued good prices for poultry raisers.  You cannot make money in the poultry business without an Incubator and Brooder. If you  would'raise chickens for the market you cannot depend on the setting hen. It is absolutely  beyond your control, whereas an Incubator is easily controlled by you.  Choosing the best Incubator is the problem. With makers claiming so much for their  machines you are left in a quandary. We settle all questions by the most liberal offer ever made.  If we hadn't the best Incubator on the market and unquestioned financial, strength we could not  make it.   Here is the offer :  Wo will ������end you-freight prepaid by ua-a CHATHAM INCUBATOR and BROODER  without Dny ouah from you until October lat, 1903.  "We do not ash you to take our -word for it.

He was 45 years of age when he entered the publishing business and had  no previous experience in the mechanics of printing when he: set*out  to publish the Leader. Carman already had ia good local paper/the  Standard, strongly entrenched in local  favor, and ,the prospect of entering  the field against so formidable a rival  might well have deterred one of much  more experience in the. publishing  business than Mr. Jameson could  boast.  Mr. Jameson, like the majority of  Western newspapermen, is an On-  tqrlan by birth, his place of na-  tiyity being Etobicoke township, in  Peel County. He was born in 1853,  and is thus 51 years of age. "When a  mere child his parents removed . to  Culture  Earsmark  gillie (listening at the keyhole)���������  Gee!

W.  JAMESON  Editor and Proprietor of Dufferin  Leader, Carman  Among all the newspapermen of  the Canadian West, few are better  known or more widely respected than  j. W. Jameson, editor and propr'ficor  of the Dufferin Leaden Both for his  personal and    professional    qualities  Mr. Janjeson  "is   Reserving   ot;\toe .wuwu. uo DM11 wl������UWiM, M WUJUW   esteem with which he is generally witll his newspaper, and which has  regarded. His aims and ideals as grown to-considerable proportions/ In  an  editor  and  newspaper-proprietor 1898,as before stated, he embarked  Bruce County, which shares with  Huron the distinction of having furnished to Manitoba the bulk -of her  Ontario settlers. Mr. Jameson received a sound course of training In  the public schools of his county, and  at the completion of his school education, being of a marked artistic nav  ture, he took up painting and decorating as his chosen calling, devoting  his time and abilities thereto until  1893, when, largely as the result of  too close '.attention 'toi his work, his  health failed, compelling him to consider change of climate and occupation. It was then that the voice ;:.of  the Great West called Mr. Jameson,  and hearkening to it he decided to try  what the pure, bracing atmosphere of  the prairies would do for his health.  He came to Carman and embarked in  the book and stationery business,  which he still conducts in conjunction  of the Digestive and Excretory  Systems.  DR. CHASE'S KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS  Are Lastingly Beneficial ��������� Removing the Cause of  Disease.  The sxmptoms of dyspepsia, biliousness, liver complaint, kidney disease and rheumatism point to the  presence of poisonous matter in the  system.  The flrst thing Dr. Chase's Kidney-  Liver' Pills do isto thoroughly cleanse  the system of this waste matter by  causing free action of the kidneys,  liver and bowels,  This" result is not brought about in  a harsh and irritating way, but is naturally and thoroughly accomplished.  The flow of bile from the liver aids  digestion and ensures continued regular action of. the bowels; the free action of the kidneys removes the uric  acid, which would otherwise cause  rheumatism or stone in the bladder.  Digestion, assimilation and the removing of waste matter, are carried  out without pain or discomfort,   and  there is no foothold for contagious or  other disease.  There, is no other preparation possessing this unique and combined action, and noiie which can possibly  reach such complicated diseases as  Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills.  Mr. Duncan McPherson, Content.  Alta., writes: "I was for many years  troubled with indigestion and headache, and derived no-benefit,from the  many remedies I used. A friend advised th������. use,, of "Dr. Chase's Kidney-  Liver Pi Us, and after taking four  boxes the result is that I am once  more in the full enjoyment of the,  blasstngs of good health."

Chase, the famous receipt  book author, are on every box.  I am the Oldest  are'the rellWfioir^to'_BoTlntBrpaTt~-of  those of' his personal life. Thoroughness, reliability, solidity, impartiality,  integrity���������these are his dominating  characteristics as a man, and these  are the.- distinguishing characteristics  of his paper.  In "some respects Mr. Jameson ��������� Is  not a typical Western editor. Caution and deliberation enter more  largely'into his mental make-up than  Is the case of most of his confreres  Of enterprise he has no lack, but in  every case it is subordinate to accuracy and*reliability. Change for mere  change-sake offers no attraction to'  his mind. Before Mr. Jameson goes  ahead, he wants- to be sure, that he  is right." His sense of responsibility  to tho public is great and ever-present  and every editorial judgment he pronounces is made with constant reference to its possiblo effect, not merely  on the fortunes of the political party  to which the Leader gives independent1' allegiance, but to the whole  public welfare, and to the future of  the country. Mr.-Jameson has the  habit of regarding every public and  political question as Involving more  or less of a moral Issue, and, as the  ultimate tost of their advisability, all  are tested by this touchstone. Tho  things that make for civic and political righteousness, tho things that are  of good report, that are of virtue and  praise���������theso uro tho things to which  Mr, Jameson holds, both as an oditor  and as a man.  Mr. Jameson Is a firm bollevor in  tlio saving soiiBo and wisdom of the  groat Canadian democracy. His faith  in tho common people Is deep and  abiding. Ho haul's on tlio duup-ncaiuil  senso of right existent In thoir hearts  and, though they mako nilslnltps ;<luo  to skilful' and wilful mlsroproHdnta  tion of facts and iHauos, thoy are  learning thoroliy, and slowly oducnt-  ing themselves to a ronllziitioii of  thoir needs and of tlio mounn by  tvlilclt thoy can bo attained, Bollov-  ing thus, It Is no wonder that Mr.  JamoHon -j-Ivoh 11 mi adhorenco to  LlboVal principles and gonorul support  to tho Liberal party. His habits of  thoroughness and going to the root of  matters, makes lilm' dissatisfied with  any dismission that does not go back  to cardinal principles, and lionoo his  editorial opinions nro of a ripeness  and wolght such as aro seldom found  among Western wookllos.

Mr. Jameson If to oxamplo ot what  on his career as editor, establishing  the Leader, Carman's second newspaper, and, without prejudice--to- another members of the Western .newspaper fraternity, it may be^sald that  he has hi the interval matte an enviable 'reputation and that his newspaper is the best evidence of his  merit, as  a newspaperman.  Mr. Jameson's face and figure are  among those most familiar at the  conventions of the Western Canada  Press association, at which he is one  of the most earnest workers. It is  not too much to say that such gather-  lugs ,would hardly seem" complete  were he absent and the members do  prived thereby of his measured speech  and placid wisdom, and the benefit of  his experience as a printer, editor and  publisher. In the ranks of newspaper  workers in tlie West there are many'  men who could better be spared In  this,.the formative period "of its life,  than can Editor Jameson. ' He stands  for and illustrates those principles  and practices that, whether in. the  life of a newspaper, a man, or a  country, tend to the best development  along lines of both material and moral  progress. Tho personal success that  comes thereby is not by any-means  principal, though undoubtedly it is a  desirable, result. This success Mr.  Jameson has deservedly reaped, but  his true valuo to Western newspaper-  dqn*t Is In the principles for which  hCvimontonds, and the influence ' ho  eieerts.

THB RELATION OF THE STATE  TO RBUGlOys EDUCATION-  Jt is a, ipjetajce to suppose tbat  (Bduoation i* a knowledge of cla8t?ic8  mathematics, and the learned sciences,   It is no doubt this, but iu  addition it ip any training as discipline that enables one to make the  best of life.     There is physical,  -moral and1 religious training, and  ih& pertain obligations in regard to  fixxoh.  Success on life depends much  on energy which produces mouaen-  Hjna, and energy depends on the  percentage of nourishment in the  food, therefore, parents should see  that   their    children    have   good  _j������ourUhing food.
