Mr. Preston, in  an interview, said that the outlook for  emigration to Canada was especially  bright, as the current of good settlers  had set in towards the Dominion, and  all that, was now required was to keep  it flowing in this direction. Mr. Preston denied that an unlesirable class  of immigrants was being brought to  Canada.

These are  speedy In their action, but serve no  permanent good. Their use produces  incipient chills, and if persisted in  they injure the stomach.

For, two sessions a committee of that body has  been taking evidence on the question  whether he should" not be expelled on  the ground that he Is a Mormon. The  case has been allowed to drag on Intermittently, apparently because Mr.  Smoot is a Republican. Recently the  Democrats have carried Salt Lake  City at the municipal elections, and  his defeat seems to have put new life  into the inquiry. As Mr. Smoot ls not  a polygamlst there are obvious difficulties in the way of disqualifying  him. In view of the fact that there  are many Mormons in Canada, the  outcome of this case will be watched  with a good deal of Interest.  Minard's Liniment Cures Distemper..

Note of Arousal and Fresh  Encouragement to Those Who Afe  Disposed to Sink In the Battle of  Life and to Give Way to Unavail-  j ing Regrets���������World Has No Use  For Pessimists. '  Entered according lo Act of Pa-liame������t of Canada,  in the year 1905. by Frrd;rick Diver, of Toronie.  at the Department of Aitr.culture .Ottawa.  Los Angeles, Col, Dec. 3.���������In this  sermon the preacher sounds a stirring  note of arousal and fresh encouragement to those who are disposed to ^ink  in the battle of life and to give way to  unavailing regrets. The text is II. Samuel xlx.,, 15, "So the king returned and  came to Jordan." j  The world has no use for the common scold. When universal fault Anders can see nothing but shortcomings!  ln their,fellow men they are apt to de-1  nounce sins .similar to those to which  they themselves are addicted, "What  is thejriatter with you?" the clapper  asked {the cracked bell in the old, legend. "You utter nothing but discords.  You are no-good to .anybody." "Yes,"  answered the bell, /'that, may be true.  But what";are you complaining about?  Was not my metal all right until you  pounded a crack in my side? And, furthermore, 'would* not the world think I  was ail right now if you did not continue to pound me and advertise my  weaknesses?" So it often happens that  the people who are most active in denouncing the weaknesses of others are  really denouncing the evil results of  which they themselves are the;direct or  indirect- causes. Like a; boomerang,  their complaints fly in a circle.    They  strike back at the very lips which stari  ed those complaints on their evil flight, j happy and blessed.  The .world has but little use for the  common scold. ;It has also little use  .for those who dp not heed the. danger  signals of life which are lifted all about  them. It has unutterable contempt for  the pilot,who will not steer away from  the buoys marking the dangerous reefs  ,pr for the engineer who will-mot stop  his locomotive when the warning, torpedo is exploded under-his wheel, or  for "the sea captain who will not keep  "Oie  ned out for his royal sire, but no sooner did the king's friends rally to.hts  standard and at the risk of their���������;fortunes, and their lives fight the, king's*  battles and win back for him his  throne and kill the young prince than  *he king closed his eyes to all his  friends' sacrifices. All he did was to  sit ln His room arid weep and moan  and wring his hand? and cry: "Oh,  Absalom, my son, - my \ son, my poor  dead-boy! Oh,-Absalom, my son, my  son, my poor boy .'"v He kept this cry-  Ing and wailing up for .hours and days.  At last Joab heard of 'the king's ingratitude. ' He walked into ; the N royal  chamber and said: "My king, have you  any heart? Can you not realize the  sacrifices we have made for you^? Can  you not come forth and thank us for  shedding our blood; instead of .weeping over that licentious, infillal child  who, tried to murder you " And today, O man, I ask, cannot you stop '  weeping over the lives of some people ,  who have been untrue to you and open  your eyes to the sacrifices of those who  have been devoting themselyes to your  comfort and happiness for the last ten'  or perhaps twenty years?  You have lost a child. He died as  the result of his sins, and you know it.  Yet you weep and cry for that child ,  as though he had been to you a saint. ',  What about the other children? What  tbout those lovely daughters and that  fine young son who are growing up by  your side? Are you just to them? Do  you try to make home happy for them?  Are you true to them You have a dissolute father. "Oh," you keep complaining, "if my father were only what  he ought,to be!" Well, he is not. You  cannot help that.' But what about your  mother? Have you ever thanked God.  that you have such a mother? Have  not her noble example and her tender  sacrifices "been enough to start out a  dozen boys like you right, even though  your father has not been what he ought  to be? And yet the strange fact of  life is this: Most of our modern King  Davids will go on whining and groaning and complaining about one person who has done them a wrong and,  neglect to show gratitude to the scores  of noble souls about them who are doing all in their power to make them  .friends when tjiey So wrong and to'  speak to them?kindly and firmly and  yet lovingly.'as Joab told King David  about his faults."  But we must not stop here. When  we find Kiqg David going forth to  work we also find Gen. Joab, 'the great  -mancipato? ,f grief. When we find  David being Induced to go forth to  meet the responsibilities ot his kingdom we.' find him breaking the shackles  of sorrow which have bound him hand  and foot,(���������as the Roman captives used  to be bound to the chariots of their  conquerors in the triumphal entries into the capital of the. Caesars. And  thus, my friends,.if you and I want to  be truly helpful to our friends ln their  time of trouble, we should not try so  much to pet them and sympathize with  them, but we should go as Gen. Joab  went to King David to. compel them  to go forth and do something.  Work is the best panacea for grief.  Many years ago a great trouble came  to my father's home. The best comforter my father had was not to be  found among those who came to weep  wl-:h him and to .sympathize with him,  but the best, comforter was the old  classmate who', came and said: "De  Witt, I am going through trouble' far  worse than yours. My wife for ten  years has been ir? the insane asylum.  I want to, give you the only, cure I  know to help:you at this time. Do  not stay at home and cry. Go forth,  into God's great harvest field and work.  Work for God in the morning, work  for God at noon, work for God at night,  work and keep on working for God all  the time, and the blessed comfort from  God will be yours."' Thus, my (brother,  when you and I are going to carry true  ?������EVn������ ������������ntr frlrd*in *helr ?���������e of I    Keir Hardy, the radical and eccen-  ���������������r?u?-le^?_n-0.t_f0l?. thei?,;t,'Lpet:tihem; !,trie member of. the British Parliament,  because I believe that the blackness  and hopelessness of your present troubles will drive you closer and closer to  Jesus Christ, who alone is able to fit  you for service for your fellow men.  How black the world seems at times,  even under the brightest of conditions!  A short time before Henry Irving, the  greatest actor of his day, passed away  he made this'statement: "With the applause of the .t'*atre" still ringing in  my ears, with y,ie memory of kind ���������  faces emblazoned on my memory, with  the consciousness that I have won the  affections of multitudes whom I cannot,  meet in person, I have often gone home  from the theatre feeling utterly desolate and alone, yearning for the intimate human companionship which fate  has denied me." . , I  As Henry Irving was yearning for 1  an intimate human companionship you. I  on account of your troubles, have been !  yearning for Christ. Thus ln closing  I commit you unto the hands of my  Saviour. He is the Christ who will  lead you if you let him. He will lead  you out of your troubles just as he led  the king of olden times. He may not  lead you to a throne of earthly power,  but he will lead you to a throne of  (heavenly glory. Into the Saviour's  hands I commit thee to-day, O King  David, as I declare again: "Thy best  days are ahead. Thy best days of earth  and heaven are ahead if you will let  David's God lead you as. he will."  Could  Spare Time  For That.  ;   Mr, Feathertop���������Just a moment, Miss  Tartun.

Joab was not a common sco'.d;  ���������neither was he one of    those    wishy  -.,. . washy,'effeminate, pusillanimous characters ..Who are afraid to say that their  souls are thoir own.   He could speak  '  out boldly and bravely when It behooved him so, to speak.    When the king,  did right, Joab was ready to say, "Thou '  art right, 0 my king," When the king  did wrong, Joab was also ready to say,  "Thou are wrong, 0 my king."

Some years ago  there joined my church one of the  bravest young women I ever knew.  Her father died when she was a young  girl. Then the executors robbed the  widowed mother of her all. The young  girl, who was brought up ������in lpxury,  went forth to earn her daily bread.  The mother never seemed to care or to  ���������realize-what-that-daugh|er-was-.doing__.  From morning until night she kept up  her neyer ending series, of complaints.  She complained about being left-a widow; she complained about loss of  money; she complained because she  had to live where she did and that her  daughter had to be away ail day long.  "But," I said one day, "madam, you  surely should be thankful for that girl  of yours. A nobler girl I never knew.  Of course you have to be alone, but  think of her down at the office working. It is not very pleasant for her."  "Yes," said the complaining old ladyj  "I suppose I ought to be thankful and  not complain, .but it is my disposition,  and I can't help it." Ah, me! How  many of us are like that dissatisfied  old lady! How many of us are like  King David! We brood over our misfortunes bo long that we not only make  life miserable for ourselves, but add  to the burdens of those who are striving to make our lives happy and blessed. ' ���������'*������������������������������������ r.   '     I  But King David was awakehed to  more than a sentimental realization of  his blessings. Gen. Joab gave to him  a moral and, spiritual galvanic shock,  which startled his hands,'his cars, his  eyes, as never before,' He made the  king leap tohlsfee't and stop his foolishness. Gen.'Joab practically Bald to  King David: "It ls not only mean and'  contemptible for you to Ignore the  sacrifices your peoplo havo mado for  you, but lt ls more, This foolish crying proves to tho world that you are  unfit to bo king. If you do not stop It  your best friends will turn against you.  Within a few weeks you will-have another' Insurrection upon your hands,  compared to which the.lato uprising  will seem only u plaything. You will  bo hurlod from your throne, and another will tnko your place, and that  rightly, for If a man does not do as  he ought to do tho world will throw  him aside, and he will, have no one to  blame but himself." Ab, that was a  bravo net of Gen. Joab I It wns ono  of tho bravest ncts'of his llfo, Ho was  willing, lf nocossnry, to saertflco his  own life In order that hlB frlond and  king might soo tho error of his ways  and guard against tho danger lurking  at his feet. Am ynu and I willing to  bo as truo to your friends as Joab was  to ,hlfl .king?  I It is easy to praise our friends when  ! thoy do right or to defend them when  they have injustice perpetrated against  thom. The story Is told that many  years ago the officers of the army of  tho King of Hanover refused to have  anything to do with a young, lieutenant  whn hnrx hi������en promoted on the field of  battlo for gallantry. They claimed  that he was not ttidr social .:>iuu! c\c.i  though the shoulder straps of a commissioned officer were his. The king  heard about tho boycott. The next  day at parade he called the young man  %m '.J... i.hlc.   Th", trnn In nrm with Ih*  lieutenant, he walked boforo tho whole  army assembled on dress parade. Then  that night, as his special guest, the  king took the young officer with him  to a banquet, Of course when the king  went arm In arm with the young man  the oth(?r officer* nt onre felt he was  not only their social equal, but a friend  well worth cultivating.  "Yes,"   l.iald  to myself aa I read that story. *how  . easy it Is for some of ua to walk arm  i In arm with our friends when they are  {doing right, but how hard  It la for  some of ui to take tha hands of oar  Go to them and rouse them out of  themselves by urging them to dosome-  tring for some one elsev. It was by  work that David overcaihe. his grief,  not by selfish tears and sob^ and weepings in the silence of his bedchamber.  But there is another fact I want you  to notice about Joab's upbraidment and  denunciation. He did not waste any  words about Other people's shortcomings. He did not go to the king and  say, "Now, David, Absalom was an  ungrateful dog. You ought to have  hanged him���������; long ago. < And those people who mutinied against you and  irfade you flee,from your capital ought  to be sought out arid punished." Oh,  no, Joab did not bother himself about  crying over the departed past. He  practically said to David: "Here, the  insurrection has taken place. An awful lot of damage has been done. There  is no use of talking about who caused  the difficulty. The one great fact we  ^Kant_tolsolve_isJji.o.TC_can_jg'e-gei_thg.  has abandoned shoes for sandals.

It is not now a question who  set fire to your palace, but how we can  put' the conflagration out. -Now, you  .-..had: better .get-.out of this room as soon  as possible and get back to our capital  and pick up the reins of government  without one moment's delay." ��������� And  David returned and' came������tb fthe], Jordan and went back to Jerusalem. Are  you and I ready to do as did David?  Are,you trying to jump in and overcome the evil deeds of others instead  of sitting down and crying about them  and magnifying them?  But I must not close without drawing your attention to one. other fact.  The awakened king was not a young  man. He was not even, a middle-aged  man, I think his hair was.white and  his step was becoming slower with age,  and he knew lt. William E, Gladstone  said just beforo he gave up his English premiership, "I feel that the sands  of'my life are running out." King  David must have1 folt his sands of life  running away also, His grown children proved it, Absalom must havo  been a grown man, No more boy could  have had the brains or the power to  raise the insurrection which he did.  Absalom was evidently a fully developed man. This meant that David, as his  father, was probably past the fiftieth  milestone lf not nearlng his threescore  yerfrs of age. Now, methlnks, when  this Insurrection started, David lost  all his moral backbone. I can almost  hear him soliloquising something like  this:  "What is the use of my fighting? I  am an old man. If I were young, as  ln tho days whon I fought Oollath,  I could fight now; but, old nnd worn  out, thoro is not much uso, I think I  had bottor abdicate. It will only bo  a fow years at tho most, and thon I  must dlo." But Joab had nono of this  nonsense In him*. He camo to tho king  and practically said: "Your majesty,  your best days aro ahoad. Get up out  of this room and go to work, Your  last years .of reigning ovavlHrnol aro  to bo your best yoars." "Tvfy friends,  my mlddle-nged or whlto-halrod friends,  I bring to you'Joab's salutation, "Your  host days aro, ahead; up,,, and out."  , That, Is what your motto should bo.

Who ought to be so well fitted  to lead and mold tho world as the mature middle-aged and white-haired  teachers or ministers or merchants or  churoh members? It i* a **ed cry  which the world In calling to-day: "Give  us young men! IM us have only young  men!" Tho voice of thn church and  thn voice of tho world should be the  voice of Joab: "Give us older men for  our loaders. Glvo us older men In the  pulpit nnd In thn pew and in legislative hall." The best days of King  David were h!������ InHt days'. The best  days of your earthly life, u aging num.  are ahead, although at tho present  time, as with David Just after Absalom's death, eondfifons mny teem tn  be black and almost hopeless. And I  aay thia with tht #r*-������������������������ confldenca  Text ot the Lesson, 2Veh. vlll, 8-18.  Memory Verses, 17, IS���������-Golden Text,  Lake xi,. 28���������Commentary Prepared  by Rev. D. M, Steams,  [Copyright; 1905,.by American Press Association.]  This'lesson should:.be one of special  interest "to all who are privileged to  attend Bible studies or conferences and  an inducement to others to do so. It  is an account of a seven days' conference for Bible reading, at which the  book of the law of Moses was read in  4he-heaiiing_pf~aIl_thCmen_and_jvomen_  who assembled from -. morning until  midday (verses 1-3, 18). Later in the  same month, on the 24th day, the people gathered again and read in the  book of the law of the Lord jtlieir God  one-fourth part :of'the day, and another fourth part they confessed5 and worshiped the Lord their God (chapter ix,  1-3). It was a time of a "real work of  the Spirit of God among "them, resulting in obedience and; in separation  from sin.  An account of the seventh month,  with its feasts of trumpets, atonement  and tabernacles, Is found In Lev. xxiil  and should be carefully studied In connection with this lesson. The three  might be summarized In such words  as these: Tho proclamation of the  forgiveness of sins causing great joy  to nil the people. Seo Acts xlil, 38, 89,  for a good comment.  Verso 8 of our lesson Is, I think, the  best definition of good reudlng that 1  have ever seen. I do not know why  lt might not be applied to singing also,  especially to solo or duet singing, or  such llko. But, If so applied, whnt about  the singing that does not come undor  this head? Well, away with It all. Lot  lt perish, for thore Is no placo for It ln  tho worship of God.  As to both the law and tho prophets,  God took caro that Iho words should  bo vory plainly writton, so thnt those  who rend might run to oboy (Pout,  xxvll, 8; Ilnb.

"Ask nnd ye ahull receive, tlmt yoar joy might be full"  (John xv. 11; xvi, 24). The joy of tb*  Lord is associated with the salvation  of His people In Isa. xil, 2, 3; xxxv, V  4; lxl, 10. See also the joy in Luko ir.  There are many In our day who profess to be the redeemed of the Lord��������� '  whether tliey are or 'not the Lord  knows���������who seem to think that real  happiness is inconsistent with .what  they call religion and endeavor to find  authority for their gloominess In the  words, "Blessed are they that mourn,"  not noticing the context. There an  also sonic who really do receive and  trust In the Lord Jesus nnd His great  atonement, but thoy, do not seem t������T  find the joy of thc Lord notwithstanding Uom. xv, 1.3; v, 1. 2; vlll, 18; I  Pet. 1-8, nnd many other similar words.  It -mist be because of some failure o������  their part to become occupied with ,  Jesus only nnd rest on His word.  As the people hoard the words out  of the book from day to day tliey  learned that thoy were expected to  keep the Feast of Tabernacle (Lev.  xxiii, 33-43), and they did so for th������  first time since the days of, Joshua ���������  (verse 17), and there was very great  gladness. This feast would recall how  God. had cared for them all through the  wilderness journey. See Deut. vilL  2-4. We are so apt to forget Ills  mercies. There are so many for wfiom  nothing seems to be prepared (verse  10). God has made the same provision  for all, but He has put tlie matter-of  making it known or passing it on in  the hands of those, who have heard,o  saying, "Let him tbnt heareth say'  come" (Rev. xxil, 17), and because we  Who have heard are disobedient or indifferent millions who might be saved  If they only knew about it are still  perishing. Well may He say to us,  "Is it nothing to you?" (Lam- 1-12.)  There is a word in chapter vii, 64,  concerning some whose names could  not be found on the register, and they  Were therefore, as polluted, put from  the priesthood. It is wholly a secondary matter to have our names, on a  so called church register, but it is all  Important to have our names in the  Lamb's book of life (Luke x, 20: Rev,  xx, 15). If they are not there an awful doom awaits us, and if tliey are-  there and we believe (Rev; xx, 15) hovr  can we help sending; the gospel to  those who have never"'""1?  Women and Tobacco.  Master Prynne, the weak, well meaa*  ing Puritan who in 1633 wrote an at*  -tack���������upon-the_stage,Atells_us_that���������hi-  bis day tobacco pipes were offered t������~  ladies at the theater In lieu of apples  between the acts. A French traveler  M. Torevin de Rocbefort, who published his journal in 1677, confirms  this by telling us that ho found smoking a general custom in England, as  ���������well among women, as among men.  Both sexes, he 'adds, hold .that Ufa  without tobacco would be intolerable  "because, tbey say, It dissipates ths  evil humors of the brain."  When ladies stopped smoking tbey,  took to snuff. Women of quality about  a century ago would not stir without  their snuffboxes, beautifully enameled  receptacles of perfumed mild rappee.  Lord Bollngbroke said of Queen Anna  and her grace of Marlborough: "Tht  nation is governed by a pair of snuff*  [ ers. No wonder the light of its glory,  is extinguished!"���������London ..Standard. '  Hott theNntmeg Grqvrs,  "A nutmeg tree,'* said the. gardener,  "looks like a laurel. The nutmeg tret  begins to bear at the ago of ten yeara.  It keeps on bearing until It Is ninety.  The fruit resembles nn apricot, and  when ripe it bursts opon, showing at Its  heart the black nutmeg inclosed lnt  network of scarlet. Tho nutmeg after  plucking must be dried, It Is dried  over a slow fire, and tho process Is tedious, It often occupies two months.

Tou may be sure I did  not waste any time getting out Into  the corridor, locking the door agalr  snd entering my room, which happen*  ed to be the next one.  "While I was doing this the woman  continued screaming, alarming the  whole hotel. A crowd soon gathered,  and wben tbe woman could be persuaded to open the door she declared  there was a man in her room. Of  course no Intruder was found, and, as  the door waa locked wheu the crowd  gathered, the lady was told thut she  must have had a nlghtmure and Imagined she saw a man (u her room. !  kept quiet, and every one else ln the  hotel wbb convinced that the lady's im-  sanation had worked upon ber fears."

Wben one sees smoke hanging from a  chimney, with a tendency to sink to  the ground, lt Indicates tbat the atmosphere te light���������In fact, too light to  float the smoke. When the smoke  rises from the chimney, lt indicates a  heavy atmosphere. A column of smoke  Is not a bad barometer, for a burometer  simply records the pressure of the atmosphere. When the atmosphere la  light and the smoke settles, the pressure on the mercury ls light, and the  column falls, indicating storm. When  the atmosphere Is heavy and the smoke  rises', the pressure ls greater and the  column rises. Indicating fair,weather.  Pleasure seekers and others before  starting out should therefore watch  the smoke.  The Three D'������.  **Down tn Greensboro," said a Citizen  of that North Carolina town.

BY LAURA JEAN LIBBEY  JaxtXbot of "Mas Middletons Love*/* "A Fart  age," ''Daisy Brook*" Ete* Etc  Maftt-  Continued from last week.  A strange, cold thrill of'heavy dis-  eppointmcnt broke like a wave over  Helena Cameron's heart as she stood  there.  "Could even the deepest love bridge  ever a dishonorable act?" she asked  herself, shiveringly. Could Frederick  Castleton, who had seamed to her tho  -very soul of honor, counsel her to  forsake the man to whom God had  joined her, even though she did not  love him? She was Mark's wife, and  Mark's wife she would remain until  the angel of death released her. She  would go far away and live her life  out alone; she would not fly with  Frederick and seek a divorce. The  very thought appalled her pure  young soul.  She would go to Mark's room, bid  bim a silent good-bye, then go quiet-  Iv away and livo her lonely'life out.  Although M>rk had come so strangely  between her and the man sho loved,  yet she never for one moment regretted that his life had been spared.  Poor Mark,  who loved her so well!  Silently she .entered that darkened  chamber, her little feet making no  sound upon the thick velvet carpet,  a,nd crept up to the bedside.  Tho doctor, believing his patient  asleep, had stolen softly from the  room, and Mark was, as he believed,  quite alone.  A low moan broke from his,lips,  i.nd peering breathlessly from her  screen behind the silken hangings,  Helena could .see that there were  tears on his long dark eyelashes.  ���������"I am to live," he moaned, .feebly,  "live to curse the life of the one be-  i-ig on earth whom I .would die to  ���������make happy; live to be a barrier between Helena and the man she loves;  live to know that she hates me and  *will"TuFnElTe���������h"oui- TOe^strugglea.-BacK"  to the heart that should have been  stilled in death. Oh, why did I not  die before these vo.ws were spoken?  Then she would have been free! Oh,  Helena, love of-iny'soul!���������my beautiful young wife, whoso white arms  have never . lain around my neck,  whose cheek has never pressed mine,  vou will never know how my heart  oleeds for you. How I repent of tho  mad thought that prompted me to  plead with yc>u to link your bright  young life to 'mine."  A moan that was most pitiful to  hoar broko from his white lips, and  h������ went on in the bitterest of sorrow: ,   ���������  "What ls .mv life and my poor  blind, worshipful love to yon, my  queen���������I, whose mad love has been  your doom? But I will repair tho  terrible wrong I have dono you.  "b ou shall be free my heart's love���������  yes, you shall bo fred at thd'cost of  my.own poor, worthless llfo!"  He put out his feeble hands toward  the doctor's modicino caso that lay  within reach on the marble table  near by, nnd grasped ono of tho  vials, and hold it up in tho flickering  light, murmuring faintly: "Ho said  ono drop of this gavo strength, and  ten meant death���������swift, sure, and  with but one fierce throb of. pain.  Ton drops, then, shall bo my portion; nnd^e T drink it, let tho sweat  thought s'ustain mo thnt I am giving my lifo���������yes my lifo���������to mako  my darling happy, for she will Uion  wed the man whom sho loves.

An hour later Helona received a  note from Froderick Castleton as she  was sitting by Mark's bedside���������a  note containing but these few words:  "Helena, I ask" you, for the last  time, will you come?"  And the answer that Frederick Castleton received as he paced his room  up and down was:  "My place through life is by the  side of the husband I have learned to  love, thank God, with all my heart.  I send this with my husband's approval.  "Mrs. Mark Forrester."  "Who can understand tho heart of  women!" he cried,,crushing the note  down deep into his breast-pocket. Ho  never knew why Helena's heart had  changed so completely toward him in  one short hour.  Frederick Castleton left the.hotel  that same afternoon.

Bottles for babies date back to remote antiquity. Most people are of tha  opinion that feeding bottles for babies  must be an Invention of modern times.  According to Professor Mosby, however, this is not the case. This, gentleman, who was lecturing before an antiquarian society, stated that it was the  custom among the Greeks for the  nurses to carry a sponge full of honey  in a small pot to stop children from  crying. The professor went on to say  that there are two Greek vases in the  British museum dating from 700 B. .0.  which closely resemble the feeding bottles used subsequently by tlie Romans.  In the old Roman cemetery of St. Sep-  ulcher, Canterbury, a feeding bottle  of bright red polished ware was dug  up In 1SG1, and Professor Mosby came  to the conclusion tliat this bottle must  have been buried with the little Roman child to whose wants it had ministered during the child's lifetime.

Savor dtoups  U kind*. AU groom.  Byron and Napoleon.  The more I think of Byron the more  clear it becomes to me that he Is first,  second and third a tragic figure. He  was tlie child of a loveless marriage,  that constant source of huge armies of  discordant natures. His upbringing  was tragic; his marriage was tragic;  his loves were tragic; his doath, which  at first I thought only tragic farce, is  actual tragedy. Byron and Napoleon,  contemporaries, were the analogues  and complements of each other. Byron  is the passive tragedy of the imaginative temperament as poet, usiug expression; Napoleon is the active tragedy of the imaginative temperament  as warrior and world compeller, employing deeds. Byron inevitably ends  in an abortive attempt at action in  Greece, Napoleon as, inevitably in an  abortive attempt at expression (the dictated memoirs) in St. Helena.���������John  Davidson in London Outlook.
