But to return to'Oscar Glendenning.
���From the moment the train started
he began to feel more composed; yet,
at every station where the cars stopped he expected to sec some one enter aud search around a moment for
some one; then, seeing him, lay his
hand heavily on his shoulder, saying,
/'You are Oscar Glendenning.      You
iy&re wanted in New York, You must
come with mc."
' On sped "the train by day and by
night, until the northland lay far bc-
'��� hind him and   he had reached   the
' land of flowers. But not even yet
had he escaped the dire fear of being
. pursued. As he neared New Orleans
the cars were packed to their full
capacity, and it occurred to him
what he had almost forgotten before,
and that was that the Mardi Gras
festival, was, at its height.
'A man can n'6t cnange his wnoio-nature even for a fair girl's sake;'" and
he turned away his head again and
paid strict attention to the parade.
Was there any one in that vast
throng who was searching for him?
he wondered. Ah! surely not. Yet
he was never freo from the terrible
fear of it. He felt hunted, by night
and by day.
Kings in their golden chariots
nodded their crowned heads; plumed
knights bowed gracefully right and
left in their saddles as their charges
pranced by beneath the gilded banners and gay flags.
First came the pageant of the My-
stick Krewe of Comus, of the legendary history of Japan, the marvelous
country of beautiful and poetic idealities. First came Comus, the divinity,
daring, handsome, gallant, fair and
brave, drawn through the lambient
air by milk-white storks with widespread wings, glancing back toward
Nippon, the land of the rising   sun,
A handsome,    courteous gentleman !,gorgeous in the gleam of the electric"
whom he met in the smoking-car, and
whom Glendenning afterwai-d learned
was a Mr. RafTerby, of New York,
who was on a pleasure trip to Mexico with his pretty little wifo, tried to
draw Glendenning into conversation
by giving him wonderful descriptions
of the festival, and asking him to
join their party to "do" the sights,
if he intended stopping over in Now
Orleans to see the great Mardi Gras.
"Perhaps it will bo better for me
to go with them," he concluded to
himself, "for obvious reasons!"
The pretty little, wife joined her
genial husband in the invitation. She
quite idolized him, as all wives
should, and was only too pleased
that he had found a pleasant com-
party, especially as their number was
just one gentleman short, one having been recalled by telegram when
half-way on their trip.
They had made arrangements beforehand for accommodations at one
of the best hotels, and had paid
quite a little fortune for the exclusive
use of the entire balcony for their
party to view the grand pageant by
Those who have seen the beautiful
city in its gala dress on just such an
occasion���gny-hueri banners, rivaling
the rainbow's hues in thoir coloring
of rose, orange, purple and flaming
gold, flaunting on the breeze and
coquetting with tho sunlight from
casement to house-top, tho wholo city
alive with mirth and bustle���will not
wonder tliat for a time Oscar Glendenning almost forgot tho terrible
cloud that hung over him���tho sword
that wns,suspended abovo his head by
a single hair, and ready to fall upon
him at any moment.
The grand feature of tho festival is
the wonderful moonlight street
parade. The whole city turns out en
jnusse to view thu brllliunt pageant,
so glittering, unique and gorgeous,
that throngs the thoroughfare in tho
grand, bowildering parade.
Mrs. Jtaffcrby, pretty as n plcturo
nnd plump ns a partridge, sat in tho
contro of tho balcony, with four pretty girls grouped about her and her
husband leaning over the back of hoi*
chair; and moro than onco tho girls
glanced nsknnco nt tho handsomo

wondering why ho did not try tn

until a bend in the routo hides her
from their view. I think I ahall soon
b# tempted to hang a largo placard
around her neck, with thli inscription
on it:
" 'Spare Your Adoring Glances.
Wouldn't that lie a capital Idea?" he
nuked, quizzically, turning to Laura
Agnes Paige, a pretty, slender young
girl who was sitting by hia side, one
white, rounded   arm resting on tho
At that moment there waa a stir
among the crowd directly under the
"What is the matter?" asked Glendenning, indifferently.
"It is an officer.; Evidently he has
just found some one for whom he has
been searching. Why, it looks much
as if this balcony was the objective
point," was the reply. "Why, by
Jove, it is!"
The blood seemed to rush from
Glendenning's face to his heart with
one great throb.   By  a great effort
ho rose to his feet, clutching hnrd at
the back of the chair he had but just
occupied to steady himself.
"I propose to go down to tho
smoking-room and have a cigar," he
said, with a great attempt at carelessness* "Will not some of you join
me? I can not stand it any longer
without a smoke."
"What! leave so excellent a vantage-ground while this affair is at
its. height? Well, hardly. We must
ask you to pardon us for being so
uncompanionable in this instance, my
dear boy," laughed Mr. Raflcrby;
and the gentlemen present indorsed
this sentiment, much to Glendenning's intense relief.
He never remembered afterward
how he made his adieus and stepped
from the balcony, bowing and smiling, into the room beyond, but the
heavy draperies once between them,
all his coolness vanished, and he
fairly dashed through the hotel and
out into the street by a rear entrance. '������ �� k

Next came the monarch and first
Mikado, Otersase, seated on a gorgeous throne surrounded by gigantic
fans; in front of him the jugglers
waiting to do his bidding.
Then followed, in a beautiful chariot, Izanigi and Izanani, representing Adam and Eve, standing upon a
rainbow called the Bridge of Heaven
���every one knew the legend. While
standing there one day, so the story
runs, looking at the beauty of the
universe, Izanigi dipped his jeweled
spear into the clouds bfelow, and the
down into space formed an island
which is How the earth.
Then came the Sun Queen, quickly
followed in the vast moving panorama <by Yanoonna, the Spirits of
Thero were wild shouts of delight
as this wonderful chariot, in which
twinkled the nioon, the stars,, and
comets, witbh the graceful young
queen, hor jfct^owl on her shoulder,
whirled into view and passed the balcony and tho golden rods. Tho Ruler of tho Sea, Hiruka, was hailed,
too, with the wildest enthusiasm.
And the peoplo held "thoir breath \
when Iononre the Avenger bursts upon thoir gaze, heralded by great colored fires rolled slowly into view.
Tho wrathful god of war and all
terrors looked neither to tho right
nor left. Forked lightning sprung
from his hands toward tlio four winds
and from tlio rock upon which he
sat, striking downward to the earth,
whilo nround him, awaiting his commands, woro six of tho forty-seven
great Romans known throughout the
world as the highest typo of loyalty
and devotion in avenging tho death
of thoir ruler.
The home of Benton tho iunl-hVOml

and Innrl Sami; tho Goddess of

And tho great crowd cheered, and
"bravo!" sprung from ovory lip as
Tuchibano-Ilimo, tho idol of flowers,
swept gracefully next in lino. Glendenning instantly rocnllod the legend
of it, but it was Miss Pnigo who*.refreshed the memories of tho others
about It,
"Why, how strange that any one
could forgot so sweet a logondl" sho
cried. "Don't you remember, it was
snid that among nil tho womon of
tho world nono was more boautlful
than Tachibnne-Hitno? Although innocent and lovely, she was the victim of jealousy anil rumor, and waa
finally brought before tho tribunal.
When asked to defend against tho
charges of her enemies, bo great was
her timidity thnt she could not
speak, nor could she understand of
what she was accused. She had passed all her lifo with flowers and birds,
and suddenly tho powers of nature
that had learned to lovo her came to
hor defense. Tho red roses on tho
boughs turned whito, the lilies surrounded her, upholding their lances,
which changed to blades of snow. A

���Weeta ot the Great Revival ot the
Sixteenth Century,
In the great literary and scientific revival that took place In the sixteenth
century botany made a fresh departure. The discovery of America bud
brought a vast number of new plants
to Europe, and their study doubtless
Stimulated tbe more complete study of
those of the old world. The great commercial activity of the century must
also have had Its Influence. Ships were
bringing new products fioni all parts
and among these plants were not forgotten. But from whatever cause It
arose, the great impulse and renewed
activity in the discovery aud study of
plants was quite remarkable. They
produced a large body of students,
whose labors were unwearied,, and a
wonderful amount ot botanical literature^
Among,those students were such
men as Lolucer, L'Obel, Caesalplnus,
L'Ecluse, Mattloll, Caspar and John
Baubin, Conrad Gesner, Poun, Leonard, Fuchs, Prosper Alplnus, Dodoens
and many others. And these men were
not stay at home botanical students.
They were great travelers, whose delight was to collect and examine plants
in their native countries. Caspar
Bauhin collected, tbem in Germany,
France and Italy with great labor and
danger("quod praeclpiium orat, plan-
tas locls natallbus Inspiclendo nullls
laborious, nullls molestiis, nullls sump-
tlbus peper clmus"); L'Ecluse collected
them In Spain, Hungary and Bohemia;
Du Choul searched Mount Pilatus and
John Pona Mount Baldus; Leonard
Bauwolf made a long journey to the
east in search of them and. Prosper
Alplnus examined those of Egypt-

How Would Ton Like This Batter?
The Moor prepares butter In an
original way and gets a different taste;
from the usual one. Fresh butter ("si-
bida,",aj;he calls It), as known by us,
be deipJN% and uses only for cooking.
It must'-beoid itl$Js to be liked. After
It has Iain in a hole ia the ground for
some years and has got a certain appearance It becomes a delicacy. To
make butter a goatskin is turned inside out. It is filled with milk, bound
tight and tied to a tree. There it is
beaten backward and forward till the
butter is mode. That la why you cannot get butter ln Morocco without hairs
all through It. The butter Is then laid
on pieces of wood and the maker goes
to soil .It, Possiblo buyers lift the
dirty cover, put In their fingers and
take out a taste and if the goods do
not please close it down ngaln and tbs
salesman pursues bis way.

Men With Women'* Voices.
Generally speaking, races living at
high altitudes have weaker and more
highly pitched voices than those living
in.regions where the supply of oxygen
is more plentiful. Thus among the
Indians living on the plateaus between
the ranges of the Andes, at an elevation of from ten to fourteen thousand
feet, the men have voices like women
and the women like children, and their
singing is a shrill monotone. The Aus-
jtrali_an_natiye has a weak voice, but
a knack of sending it a long distance,"
and the lowest tribes of African bush-
men also possess weak voices. Of all
human beings It would seem that the
dwarf race discovered by Stanley in
central Africa have, In point of volume
and compass, the weakest of human
voices, and this is only what one
would expect from the feebleness of
their physique generally.

The Bird of Paradise,
The bird of paradise is found wild ln
India and central Africa. It was so
called not on account of Its beauty,
but from the fact that tbe earliest
dealers cut off the ugly feet and legs
of the living specimens and gave out
that the bird came from the other
world and did not alight In this, so lt
had no need of feet.

Perforated  Indian Skull ��� Intsittting
Word Paintings on Temagami Rocks.
Mr. David Boyle, superintendent of
the Provlncliil Museum, has Just returned to Toronto from Moore township
tn Lamb ton County, He found the report about the mammoth remains
said to have been discovered there, to
be incorrect He could find do traces ol
such an animal.
Mr. Boyle made some exeayattons in
tho Indian Reserve, however, and picked <ip some relics of value.. The most
interesting was a human skull perforated on the apex with a clean cut hole,
which must have been bored with some
Instrument. There are a few other specimens of a similar description in the
"These holes may have been bored in
the skulls before death," said Mr. Boyle,
"in whioh case they were no doubt
made to allow some evil spirit to escape, as fn the case of one stricken
with apoplexy. But It is quite possible
the holes were made after death, and
would then be made for the purpose
of hanging the skulls up.
"The natives of 'Peru," he continued,
"had made considerable progress In
the art of surgery, and skulls ha\e
been found showing clear evidence of
trepanning, the holes being made with
sharp pieces of flint"
Interesting specimens et Indian
word painting were copied and
brought to the museum last week by
Mr. w, H. c. Phillips, who made a trip
to the Temagami district for the purpose. There are two sets of paintings^1
four specimens ln each set. One was
found patnted on the rocks on the north
shore of Diamond Lake, the other at the
southern extremity of Lady Evelyn
Lake. '���
They bear close resemblance te tbe
paintings discovered on the rocks of
Lake Massanog, Addington County,
and published in Mr. Boyle's archaeological report for 1904-5. No one has
yet succeeded in deciphering these inscriptions.

A generation ago the environment of  the child, was different from that now  to be found In large cities. Now a  third of the population is crowded into  the cities, and the narrow streets, lined  with towering buildings, have become  canyons where sunlight comes in glints  and where blasts of air laden with pestilential dust smother and blind the  child amid the dangers from heavy  trucks, swiftly moving automobiles and  the rushing of trolley cars.  "The city fathers fain would save the  beauty of the city by more or less Infrequent patches of green," says Seth  Thayer Stewart In the prospectus of  the Playground Association of America,  of which Theodore Roosevelt is honorary president and Jacob Rils honorary  vice president, "but even these are covered with warnings of keep off the  grass, and the city child, without the  possibilities of outdoor physical development, wonders whether the progress  of civilization Is not conspiring with  the arm of the law to prevent the natural development of his instinct for  play and love of nature, and even to  crush, out the possibilities ef child life  in larger cities."    .  The object of the Playground association Is to bring about tbe establish-  , ment and maintenance of playgrounds  in the larger cities where children and  young men may expend their physical  energy in a way that will be beneficial  to themselves. It believes that the  maintenance of playgrounds Is not a  matter of ornamental philanthropy, but  a part of the system of education of  the state necessary to the development  of she whole nature and not of the  mind only, and that it is the duty of  the state to maintain such space, place  and opportunity in playgrounds and in  the curriculum of the schools for all  Its growing citizens.  "Believing," says the prospectus,  "that In a democracy the tide and tone  of life should be kept full and high  and that upon the physical well being  of its people largely depends the well  being of the nation, that the stress and  strain of our industrial age, the artificial life of crowded centers and the  Isolation of the country tend to nervous disorder and breakdown, and believing���������that-play���������is���������instinctive_and,  tencls to develop the whole man and  the physical and moral qualities necessary to high character, thus maintaining the working power at Its best, the  Playground Association of America affirms tho necessity for place, space and  opportunity in the open sir In order to  insure 'life and happiness.'"

It is an ailment that  effects almost every girl in her teens.  Womanhood makes new demands upon her blood supply that/ she cannot  meet.        Month    after    month    her  strength,  her very    life,    are    being  drained away.      No food and no care  can d'o her  any good.      No common  medicine  can  save  her.

She doctored for upwards of a year,'and the doctor said  she did not have as much blood in her  body as an ordinarily healthy person  would have in one' arm.   The doctor's  treatment did not do her a particle  of good.      Site seemed slowly fading  away.      Then  6he    became    afflicted  with salt rheum and her hands were  almodt raw.

She  continued taking the pills unitil she  had used thirteen boxes when she was  as well and strong as ever, every trace  of both anaemia and salt rheum had  disappeared and she has since enjoyed  the/ best of health.Later on my youngest daughter aged fifteen   began    to  lose her health, but thanks to out Ac-  ?orienco with Dr. William's Pink  ills wo knew whoro to look for a euro  and after usin,g four boxes of pills  sho was all right again.

Popularity ���������A Momber's Corporeal  j     Presence ts flec������ssary Now.  ! It Ib one thing .to possess a hat, and  ���������mother to know what to do with it.  In the British House of Commons the  rules and regulations concerning hats  are many and varied. For instance, an  bonorafele* member may wear a hat  while In his seat, but he must on no  account put Vt on before he gets there,  and he must take it off aa he leaves,  A member sauntering ln and out of  the sacred precincts with his hat on  would raise a. din loud enough to awaken the seven sleepers, and catch the  Speaker's eye into the bargain. Another rule concerning hats is that  when the House has been cleared for  a division, a member Is not permitted  to address the Speaker without a hat  ������n. They do aay that on one occasion,  the G.O.M. could have worn a bucket  or a punch-bowl w^bout beln������ wholly  lost to ettybt and memory dear; but  that is anoiftcr story.  An M. P. can Ao things with a top-  hat which he could G& but Jnglorlous-  ly and ineffectively with a, eap. There  is no glory ln a cap, and this is why  Mr. Kelr Hardie has never attained unto the same. A top-hat can be utilized  aa a repository for a written speech or  m hidden newspaper, both luxuries for-  ifcldden.  , Ornament of Debate.  It may even be sat upon to give finish and eclat to a peroration, and in  thiB way it has 'become an ornament of  debate In many a maiden speech. You  i<mu������ -drop down on a cap after asking  a searching ^question on the political  situation in Timbuctoo, and it is still  as good as ever lt was; but sit on a  .shining topper fn the same circumstances, suid lo, it ls no more! It can  only be used afterwards as a wind instrument in a concertina band.

He was orr  uting on the woes of Erin, and, raising  iiln hand wkh one ot those mighty gestures which have given him a reputation and a name, he drove home his ar-  gt*m������������l with such thrilling force on the  headgear of a "glntleman'from the slither islo" that the House began to wonder whether the honoroble member  vrould ever be rescued. But the mijrht-  (e9t record still belongs to C.-B., wh->  has had the unspeakable honor of having his hat banged oft his head, and  trundled down tho floor of the House  twice in succession hy a deelamat iry  enthusiast who sat behind him.  Hat Held Fort For Him.  Those were days when you could pot  erven wnre out of a top-hat when you  tried hard than you can to-day. The  hat-trick was then a lovely, subtle Ingenious thing. One day tho late Sir  Wank liockwood, lawyer, good fellow,  and gentleman through and through,  dropped Into the House at Ave o'clock  in tho morning, loft a utility hat which  he kept for the puipose In his locker,  drove to his chamber, read up the caso  of Regina versus somebody or other,  had breakfast at the Cock, and then  ���������went up to the Old Balloy Court and  cheated the gnllown of his respected  elhmt. AH th* wVdle -his utility hat had  been holding tin fort for him.  When he itivmvJ tin-- House ngaln on  Irish member, crowded out of the peats  belrtw, was requetUlrvsr the ruling of the  epeaker on tho point whether a member eould deposit one hat In his seat,  and then leave the House to pnnum his  ordinary avocatlonu tn another hat,  while another poor f -Uow. or >wd"d out,  woh driven to mlrtrews the House from  the roof err*.* Pppak������*r ruled nrfilnn'  two hats for nm< head, nnd ������n It *k-  wood riilf-nted.

It doubtless will be news to many  that Edward VII ls the one king in all  the world, who unites in his person the  oldest royal dignity tn Europe with the  oldest blood royal���������and both Irish. For  he ls genealogically and indisputably  the direct descendant and supreme representative of the high kings of ancient  Ireland. The history of Ireland goes  back to Conelrie Mor, or Conalry the  Great, who 600 years before Christ rul-  TEA.M ST'ER S. aod DJ& AY MBK 4  SINGLE ami 1X)UB),S UIGS*  Fot    M1KK.

From this  Conairy the Great, the historic ancestor  of the Hy Nials, to King Connor Mac  Nessa, wne was the contemponary ot  the Roman Emperors Tiberius and Augustus; from Connor Mac Nessa to  King Nial of tlie hostages, who reigned  in the generation before St. Patrick  came to Ireland; from King Nial to  King ��������� Malcolm Can Mor, who married  Princess Margaret, sister of the "Saxon  king Edgar Athellng.; from King Malcolm to the heroic King Bruce of Scotland: and from thence, through the  Stuarts, the house of Hanover and that  of Coburg,' to Edward VII.. the descent  is as direct and as Incontrovertible as  any descent In ancient or modem history, says the Marquise de Fontenoy..  Of course, thore are other people,  somo of them great Irish nobles, and  others, mero commoners, besides hundreds of persons who can show descent  from the ancient kings of Ireland. But  all havo quitted the royal caste, which  King Edward Is alone to retain. For  all thone who wish to have fuller par.  tlculara of this Irish ancestry of King  Edward, I would refer t > th<> worlw of  tho late Sir Bernard Burko, lUsUr king  at arms, to other eminent gcneologliHs.  and lost, but not least, to that trusted  associate of Pamoll and formor Nationalist member of Parliament, Frank  Hugh O'Donnell, a recognized authority  on Irish history.

ABLE STATE DOCUMENT  REPORT   OF   ROYAL  COMMISSION  CONDEMNS RITUALISM.  Members Represented Every Shadfc of  Church Opinion, But Every One of  Them Concurred In the Report ��������� A  . Most Unusual Thing In Church Concessions���������Large Spirit Runs Through  Ita Every Tissue.  Upwards of two years ago the Balfour  Government, taking1 cognizance of the  outcry against ritualism, appointed the  Royal Conwnlsslon on Ecclesiastical  Discipline, "to enquire Into the alleged  prevalence of breaches or neglect of the  law relating to the conduct of Divine  service In the Church of England, and  to consider the existing powers and  procedure, applicable to such irregularities, and to make such recommendations as may be deemed requisite for  dealing -with the aforesaid matters."  Sir Michael Hfcks-Beach, now Viscount  St. Aidwyn, was chairman. The other  members were the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Marquis of Northampton,  the Bishop of Oxford, Sir Francis  Jeune, Sir John Kennaway, Right Hon.  John G. Talbot, M. P., Sir Samuel  Hoare, M. P., Sir Edward Clarke, Sir  Tu. T. Dibdln, judge of the Provincial  Court of Canterbury and York; the  present Bishop of Gloucester; Rev. T.  W. Drury, principal of Ridley Hall,  Cambridge; G. W. Prothero, editor of  tho Quarterly Review, and George  ���������Karwood. The death of Sir Francis  Jeune (Lord St. Helier) was followed  by the appointment of Lord Alver-  etone. The report ot the commission,  after being awaited with much impatience, has at last been issued, and a  most able state document it is. Those  to whom its conclusions are least acceptable must be won by its large  spirit, exhaustive research, historical  perspective, clear reasoning, and literary form. It ls the work of great  ���������churchmen, statesmen, jurists and historians. Though every shade of Church'  opinion was represented on the commission, all Its members concurred in  the report, a thing unusual in Church  commissions.  Against Ritualism.  '' "For most of the practices usually de-  _Bjadbea_as_ritmlJfiJie_^  that there is no authority. Such of the'  unwarranted practices as are of no  doctrinal significance or symbolize  teaching legally declared not to be repugnant to the Articles or formularies  of the Church of England, the commis-  ������lon would tolerate, though only under  conditions of efficient regulation and  with careful regard for the opinions  and feelings of congregations. The  report���������apart from the evidence and appendices, which have yet to toe published ��������� is a very large one, a close  digest of it covering a page and a half  of The London Times. The recommendations would tako up more than a  ���������olid column of this paper.  ' I11e0*| Praotioes.  r  Tt la advised that 34 practices which  tho commission find to be Illegal   be  prohibited by authority, Theso are: In  the matter of vestments, Conflteor and  /last Gospel, ceremonial mixing of the  'Chalice, use ot wafers, Lavabo, hiding  ���������of the manual acts, sign of the cross,  'BfUtctus bell, Incense, portable lights,  ��������� attar lights, holy water,   blessing   of  vpalms,   Tenetorae,   washing  of  altars,  ���������Paschal candle, stations of the cross,  ���������observance of days not appointed by  tbe Prayer Book to be observed, celebrations without communicants, children's euoharlsts, uso of tho canon of  tlio mass, altar cards, omission of the  Invitation, omission of the Creed and  Otorla   in   Excolslir,   olevatlon,   genuflexion, "Kcce Agnus Del," reservation,  mass of tho   prao-sanctlfled, benediction, with and without sacrament, the  observance   of   days   either   excluded  from the calendar In tho Prayer Book  or  Introduced  since  the Reformation  i;\t>    the    calendar    of    tho    Ronnan  Church, hymns to tho Blessed Virgin,  Intercession of   saints,   veneration   of  linages, venoratlon of roods,  Stolei, Confessions, Eto.  Tk* mont common deviations from  tho'standard (tho Advertisements of  X5iifl) in tho matter of vestments are  tho following; Tho uso of tho stole,  which Is nowhere sanctioned by the  Ornaments Rubric; tho disregard of  (tits direction for tho regular use of tho  ������m|'o in ctithedralH; the uso of cuchar-  l������Uc vestments or tho alb, aanlec, cha-  ouhlo, girdle, maniple and stole. Tho  'MinmlHHlononi find that neither confession nor prayers for tho dead aro Monti, but they uphold the declaration In  tha encyclical letter Issued by tho Lam-  *).;th Conference of 1978 -that "No min-  Inter of the Church la authorized to require private confession from those  who may resort to him," and they point  .,...   ...-.

If  this were acted on, the highest tribunal for the trying of charges of heresy, of breaches of ritual, etc., would  be, not, as now, the Judicial Committee  of the Privy Council, but a permanent  body of lay judges, to whom final appeals shall be referable. These members of the Crown Court of Final Appeal should all be members of the  Church of England. The c >urt would  decide, ultimately, all questions of fact,  but, to decide whether the facts ascertained establish an.offence against the  doctrine or discipline of the Church.  the court should act on the advice of  the bishops, unless there ls clear Par*  llamentary authority for acting wlth-  j out such advice. It is further recom-  ! mended that an ecclesiastical court be  ! empowered to punish disobedience of  | its orders on the part of an incumbent  ; by vacating his benefice, aiid rendering  ! him ineligible for further ecclesiastical  service until he has satisfied the archbishop of the province that he will afterwards abide by the law.  More Bishops.  The commissioners consider that one  cause for the general laxity In the observance of the law is tho Inadequacy  ! of tho present supervision. They find  that there ls great room for improve-  ���������ment in tb-������: matter oT visitation* *������v  \ bishops and archdeacons, and of inspections by rural deans. These visits are  the regular and official means for  keeping the bishops informed as to the  ^conduct of Divine service, and as to  ' the ornaments, objects of decoration,  [ and fittings of the churches. Episcopal  directions, ln accordance wltli law,  should be made enforceable against Incumbents and churchwardens by means  of summary application to the consistory court of the diocese. Any order  'thus made should be subject to appeal  j to the provincial court. But visitation  I cannot be sufficiently effective in many  of the present dioceses because of their  great extent. Hence, the commissioners  advise the sub-divlslon of many dio-  ; ceses and the passing of a general act  providing for the creation of new dioceses by order-in-Council.  COOLING MILK.  Te   Keep  It   Sweet   From   Saturday  Night to Mondar Morning;.  Where milk is not taken to the  creamery or cheese factory on Sunday  to keep it oh the farm from Saturday  night to Monday morning in warm  -weather_so,asJo_bax������iLsweet_w^enJt^  finally reaches the facto^TTa~dinfcjilt  problem, but an important one, especially If the milk Is Intended for  cheesemaklng. Apropos of this difficulty the following Instructions of a  Canadian diary expert are reproduced  from the Ottawa Journal:  The only cooling agents to be had by  the farmer aro Ice and cold water, and  every intelligent dairy farmer who  wants to send sweet milk on Monday  morning should have a supply of ice  and know how to uso It. The quickest  way to cool milk is to have lt flow In  thin layers over a cold surface, but tbls  Is generally not practical to a farmer.  Practical Method,  The method I advise to patrons In  my district Is as follows: A tank or  trough of some kind Is required to hold  cold water, and ln tbls water the cans  containing the milk are placed. Each  pailful as It is drawn from tbe cow Is  strained Into these cans, wblcb should  not be too large. By tho time all tbe  milking Is done tho milk will be fairly  cool, but the water will have bocomo  warmed nnd will have to bo run off  and move cold water put on ln Its  plnco. This should put tho temperature down to ������55 degrees, but renew  tho wator no often as necessary, AH  tho work then required Is to stir tho  milk occasionally In ordor to Insure a  xmlform temperature throughout, If  you luivo Ice to put In tbo water you  can soo how mitf'h better It will bo and  how much labor It will savo you.  After Cooling,  When tho milk la cooled cover the  cam with a clean, wet blanket, ono  ond of which Ih loft In tho wntor and,  acting as a wick, aids In maintaining  tlio cool temperature and a Iho prevents  tho cream from drying, It you hnvo ft  woll or a spring to Ret tho cans In thoy  will answer tho purpose woll, but bo  suro to Htlr tho milk nt Intervals whllo  It In cooling, ho thnt tho contor will not  renin In warm and tho outer pnrtm only  be coolod,  Again, lot mo say cool tlio milk Just  ns soon as possible after drawing it  from the cow to bolow 55 degrees, and  keep It there until It is time to tend lt  to tho factory on Monday morning. Do  not add Bundny morning's milk to that  of Saturday ulgltt uuloss it lias boen  flrst cooled to ns cold a tomperature u  that of tbe niuht's milk.  80Y ROVER'S FUTURE.  Lad  Who  Went Through  Canada  en  10,000 Mile Trip to Be a Sailor.  Young Stanley Condor, the adventurous boy traveler, whose latest exploit  was a stowaway voyage from New  York to Liverpool, had his future decided for him by the deputy-stipendiary  of Liverpool.  Recentljr Stanley was remandsd to  the workhouse, the suggestion being  that he should be placed in a reformatory. Mr. Klnghorn, however, has fallen In with tbe view expressed by The  Weekly Dispatch that' a lad of suoh  qualities as Condor should not be plao-  ed in the restrictive confines of a reformatory. The other day the deputy-  stipendiary said that he was reluctant  to send the boy to such an institution,  There was nothing criminal in his roving propensities and he had the making of a good man in him. He had,  therefore, decided to send him to the  training ship Clio, stationed at Banffor,  until he was sixteen years of age.  The Clio la a vessel on which only  unconvicted boys can be received  Young Stanley Condor will there be  trained for ths merchant servlee.  Stanley Condor was taken to Winnt-  pty by his father early this year, and  was twice detected by the railway authorities oonoealed on trains for Mentreal.  His third attempt succeeded and from  Mentreal he traveled ln the same way  free to New York; where he stayed  three, days, doing odd jobs. Tired ot  American life, he secreted himself oa  the liner Victorian for Liverpool.  Theve was a pleased expression on  his face when he knew he was to be  sent to the Clio. It was somewhat  amusing to notice how closely he was  waiohed by the police officials ln court.  He haa a reputation for sUpporinsss,  and those who had charge ot him seemed possessed with a haunting fear that  ke might vanish before their eyes,  The Kangaroo ������t Bay.  When pursued the kangaroo, If possible, directs his flight toward the river.  If he reaches it, he enters and, thanks  to his great fceight, is able to go on  foot to a depth where the dogs are  obliged to swim. There he plants himself on his two hind legs and his tail,  and, up to his shoulders In the water,  ho waits the attack of the dogs. With  his fore paws he seizes by the head tho  first dog that approaches him, and, as  he is more solidly balanced than his  -assailant,-be_hoIdsjthoJliigXMIe_H5l  der water as long as he can. Unless  a second dog speedily comes to tbo  rescue the flrst one Is sure to be  drowned. If a companion arrives and  by bis attacks on tbe kangaroo manages to set the captive free the balf  drowned brute Is glad to regain the  shore as quickly as possible. In tbls  way a strong and courageous malt  kangaroo will bold his own against  twenty or thirty dogs, drowning somo  and frightening others, and tbe hunter  is obliged to intervene wltb a bullet  How Eczema  Is Recognizejcl  How it is Promptly Relieved and Thoroughly  Cured by  Dr.   Chase's   Ointment.  There are many kinds of eczema,  but all have suoh symptoms as redness of tho skin, with a yellow tinge,  heat and inflammation, swelling, discharge of watery matter and tho  formaton of a crust.  The most constant and troublesome feature is ^io itching and burning which varies from that which is  simply annoying to thai} which is positively unendurable. ;���������������������������   a  Then there is the tendency for eczema to become chronic and spread to  other parts of the body.  Persistent treatment is always necessary, bn|b you can depend on it that  Dr. Chase's Ointment will curo you.  Relief will come after the first few  applications, and tho healing process  will be gradual and natural.  It is due to its remarkable 'record  in the cure of eczema that Dr. Chasefs  Ointment has become known the world  oyer. For every form of itching  skin disease or skin irritation it  is of incalculable worth.  Mrs.    Joseph    Brickman,      Gilbert  Plains, Man., writes:���������"I have used  Dr. Chase's Ointpn'ent with good success. For fifteen years I was troubled fc  With itching burning skin disease and  tried many remedies all to no avail,  until I usod Dr.. phase's" Ointment.  This preparation gave immediate and  lasting relief and;I would not be without it for anything as it is worth its  weight in gold."  Mr. John Camming, Coalfields,  Sask., writes:���������"I was troubled for  some timo with disfiguring blotches  oo the faco and though I tried many  ���������remedieB both internally and externally could not get rid of them. A  friend' of mine recommended Br.  Chase's Ointment and this preparation  acted almost like magic in my case.  After using it for some time tho  blotches entirely disappeared and my  skin was left soUt and smooth."  'Mothers use Dr. Chase's Ointment,  for the chafing and skin trouble i of  their babies in preference to unsanitary pore-clogging powders; 60 cents  a box, at all dealers, or Edmanson,  Bates & Comjpany, Toronto.

Jt Is the easiest thing in the world to  get the wrong tint in one's curtains,  and sometimes it is the hardest thing  in tbe world to get just the right one.  Before buying curtains the wall paper  should be carefully studied. V\'ith paper that has a white background lt is  always safe to use white curtains, but  If the background is in> colored tones  the greatest care should be used in  selecting material of a color that will  harmonize, and in buying curtains for  a room that is already papered a sample of th> paper should be taken along  to avoid making a serious mistake. Of  course, if paper and curtains aro  -bougbt-at-the_same_time It Is a com-  paratlvely easy matter to have a satis-"  factory combination of color.  Sometimes, no matter how much care  may bave been taken, the result will be  startlingiy wrong. In this case much  may be done with overhanglngs, not of  heavy stuff, of light texture and of a  color tbat will tono in well witb both  tf tbe conflicting shades, and that will  do much toward harmonizing tbe whole  appearance of the room.

Her father frowned at her enthusiasm, and Reed's thin, brown face colored.  "You ought to run," grumbled the  squire, continuing bis examination of  the young fellow; "you're built'like, a���������  !greyhound or a grasshopper!"  Reed, outwardly at ease, flinched Inwardly under the squire's keen scrutiny. His compact with the pretty Elsie  would be null and void without her father's consent, and be felt that bis athletic career was a detriment In ,the  eyes of the older'man. He was not at  all encouraged by the remarks that followed.  "I don't believe in It," Irascibly.  "Boys go to college to study, or ought  to, and they make a business of some  kind of foolish play. If those football  fellows," pointing to the three otber  young men who were his daughter's  guests for the spring vacation, "had to  work one-half as hard sawing wood or  ��������� plowing, they'd think tbey were terribly abused."  Some one called Elsie, and she hurried away, giving a pleading glance at  her lover which he interpreted as counseling him to patience.  "And as for running." continued the  squire, with increasing choler, for he,  too, had seen the pleading glance, "as  for running, why should a man of ordi-  THKN A STMUK OV lXtLVVS DA SHOD BV HIM.  nary courngo core to oxcol os a runner?

"Hello, Bartlett, what's  the matter with your horse?"  He had reached the top of a long,  steep hill, and overtaken a neighbor  with a heavy load of rock.  "Stepped on a stone that rolled, and  gone as lame as a lazy man's excuses,"  Bartlett answered characteristically,  "Suppose I hitch in my team and  take the load down for you," suggested  the squire, "It's a,ll level after we pasa  my house.

Bartlett had locked the wagon wheels  preparatory to making the descent, but  as the squire lifted the tongue for the  other horses to be hitched iu the lock  chain snapped and broke and the heavily loaded wagon started down the hill.  He shouted to Bartlett, who, hampered by the four horses, lost his head  and only bawled, "Whoa, Hart, whoa!"

"Go on, horsy," cried Betty, in great  glee; "go faster!"  The squire couldn't spare breath now  even to groan. The heavy wagon, with  a.ton of rock behind him, crashed and  roared, bounced over the rough places  In the road, struck fire from cut stones,  and the man ran till his legs seemed  merely rags fluttering in a fierce wind.

He had reached the level; He could  feel thc slackening of the terrific speed,  but he still ran on, miles It seemed to  him now, before he could stop the demon that was forcing him onward.  "Go on, horsy! Gldd up!" cried the  Insatiate Betty as the squire dropped  limp to the ground. "You can be my  horsy now," she remarked complacently to the first of the young men  who reached the side of the exhausted  squire.  They quickly Improvised a stretcher  from the blankets and carried the unconscious man to tho house.  Ho opened his eyes after awhllo and  looked anxiously about him.  "Bobby's all right," said some qne  quickly, "and the little glrl-and-and,  I guess, everybody."  "Ralph!" gasped the squire.

It may protect the couch���������  wardsThe afflicted AVmselveTwill not *eir bed by night-from too close in- j  be a direct incentive to the shirking of  obvious duties on the part of the individual and th* local community. His  utterances were listened Xo with deep  interest, the impression prevailing that  they were in a sense seml-offlclal.  There are, he said, in the institutions  for the insane in Ontario, 6,000 people,  who are maintained at an annual cost  of quite $1,000,000 If anything at all is  allowed for capital account, eto. For  the maintenance of but 1,200 of these  or about 20 per cent, is anything contributed by patients themselves, or by  those morally or legally responsible for  their care and comfort, and for the  year ending 30th September last the  amount so contributed was less than,  $115,000, the highest point yet reached.  Much of this was contributed by the  working class, who are as a class the  least disposed "to avoid payment. This  means that 88 per cent, of the cost of  maintenance Is defrayed by the province. He acknowledged the duty, of  the Government to take care of this  class of citizens, but on far higher  grounds of a measure of humanity and  practical Christie ntty he unhesitatingly  advocated the most efficient system, regardless of expense. The central plan  of caring for the insane adopted by the  Government is superior to the localized  one at many points, but it destroyed  the careful oversight of each individual  case which is the distinctive feature of  local interest and control. The superiority of the localized system consists  in the fact that the municipal offlcors ; It ia B0 sjmpie to make and the re-  have personal knowledge of every case !.Bults obtalne(i are g0 satisfactory that  and of the ability of the relatives to  pay and whether they should be made  to pay. In this respect the Ontario system Is deplorably defective. Mr. Hanna drew attention to the increase in  the number of insane from one in each  1,168 of population in 1871 to one in  each 340 in 1905, while in Quebec there  is only one in each 450, In New Brunswick one in 460, and in Nova Scotia  one In 850.

If the home is  more ambitious and there are several  rooms, the screen has still its part to  play.  It may be well to give a few suggestions as a guide to any who wish to at  tempt the task.  First determine upon the size of the  screen, the height of the panels, their  width and whether two, three or four  shall be used. A screen of good proportion is one formed of three panels, five  and a half feet high by two feet in  width.
