UNSIGHTLY SKIN  DISEASE REMOVED  Wonderful    Zam-Buk    Cure   in Saskatchewan.  A most interesting cure has just  been effected at Invermay, Sask., by  the great household balm, Zam-Buk.  Mrs. J. M. McCormick says: "Seven  years ago my face broke out in  rough, red blotches, which burned  and itched and smarted in turn  almost beyond endurance. I commenced to try every known remedy  I could get for face and skin troubles, but got no relief. Doctors  told me there was absolutely no  cure for me. Finally my husband  sent for a supply of Zam-Buk. We  applied a small sample to a small  patch of the disease. To our delight  the portion treated with Zam-Buk  very quickly healed. We then obtained a proper supply and began  the Zam-Buk treatment. I am now  delighted to state that afer having  used a few boxes, i am free from  the old trouble and completely cured.  I will never be without Zam-Buk in  the house as long as I live, and to  all who are troubled with skin disease in any form, I would say,  waste no time in obtaining a supply of Zam-Buk."  Zam-Buk cures eczema, itch, scalp  eoresj ringworms, blotches on the  face and body, chapped places, cold  sores, piles and enlarged veins. As  an embrocation it cures rheumatism  and sciatica, and rubbed ,over the  chest relieves tiie tightness due to  severe colds.  All stores and druggists sell at 50  cents a box, or post free from the  Zam-Buk Co., Toronto. 6 boxes for  $2.50.  Tha  Papua Cannibals.

They are head  hunters, and suspicious. The- decorations which they wear destroy  the shape of ears, nose and, mouth,  and give their facas a repulsive appearance. The dance is everything  with them.

"Expert legal testimony," says., a  well known member of the New York  bar, "can easily be made a two-  edged weapon in court.

"The examination was conducted  by a young and smart attorney, who  patronized,.the expert with all the  authority of half a dozen years of  practice.  "One of his questions related to  the form in which the ore was found,  a form generally known as "kidney  lumps.'  ,"rNow, sir/ said the attorney,  fhow large are these lumps ?

Winter after winter Canada is  swept from ocean to ocean by an  epidemic of la grippe, or influenza,.  It is one of the deadliest troubles  known to our climate. It starts  with a sneeze ��������� and end3 with a  complication. It lays Jthe strong  man on his back; it tortures him  ^ith^feveT���������and-^hiHsT^headaches-and-  backaches. It leaves the sufferer an  easy prey to pneumonia, bronchitis,  consumption and other deadly diseases. You can avoid la grippe by  fortifying your system with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. You can cure  its disastrous ?iter effects with this  same medicine. These pills protect you; they cure you; they upbuild you; they banish all evil after effects. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  ward off all winter ailments. They  cure all blood and nerve disorders.  They are the ��������� greatest blood-builder  and nerve tonic science has yet discovered. Ask your neighbors, no  matter where you live, and you will  learn of someone who has been  cured by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  after other medicines have failed. It  is on the unbiased evidence of your  neighbors that we ask you to give  these pills a fait trial if you are  sick or ailing. Mrs. Emma Doucet,  St, E"'nlie, Que,, says; "Words  enn hardly express my gratitude for  what Dr. 'Williams' Pink Pills have  done for jne. I had an attack of  la grippe which left me a sufferer  from headaches and pain in tho  stomach. I used several medicines  but found nothing to help me until  I took Dr. Williams' Pink Piiia.  When I began them I-waa weak and  very much run down. The pills  have not only fully restored my  health, but I gained in flesh while  taking them. I recommend them to  nil sufferers."

The BritishV Alien Immigration  Board met recently at Blackwell  Docka to consider the case of Anna  Wad, a young Russian girl, who arrived in London by the Riga boat.  When arrested by the immigration  officer the girl said she had in her  possession only ������5. But she said this  action was due to advice given her  by agents in Russia, and she produced ������11 10s. in Russian money.  A relative appeared and offered to  keep the girl until she could get sufficient money to proceed to Africa.  He was a married man, and rented  four rooms, but he had four children,  and had lately sub-let two of his rooms  to two single men. Besides this, the  girl denied that she had any desire  to emigrate to Africa, and declined  to go there. She said she had an aunt  in England, but, as the latter was not  present, the board decided that the  girl should be deported.  A Higher Sphere.  Ths late Gol.

"~Tbs~<a*eer-of-Sir-WUUam"Arrof,-th������  constructor of tha Forth and Tower  Bridges, reads more like the inventions ox a novelist than a record cf  actual fact Little mors than fifty  years ago he was an "odd lad" at a  cotton factory. Then he became a  blacksmith's "striker,** and performed duties that knitted his muscles and  built up his constitution for his subsequent struggles. From "striker" the  transition to Journeyman blacksmith  was a slight one. But work was not  always forthcoming, and Sir William  had the gloomy experience of tramping through Ayr for work���������the very  town which in his later years honored  him with its freedom. By dint ot muchi  self-abstinence he amassed a capital <t  ������80, and with this started for himself  as an odd-job engineer and smith. He  made slow but sura progress, and was  ablo to tender for and obtain some  sub-contraots in connection with the  Forth Bridge. Then came the terrible,  Tay Bridge disaster, followed by tha  erection of a new bridge. Sir William  Arrol was fortunate in being selected  to construct this, and he followed this  achievement by the erection of ths.  Great Forth and Tower Bridges. He  was knighted in 1800, on tha occasion  of the opening of tha Forth.Bridgsw  ncnaarabla,  One of the most productive sections  >f the world Is the Russian province  it' BessarubUi, taken from Turkey In  1878. Its vineyards often yield 300 gal*  Ions of wlno per aero. The average  yield of wheat Is thirty-live bushels  iud of malzo sixty busbols.  Hurried eating and lack of proper  mastication of the food are among  the most common causes of indigestion, and overeating is undoubtedly  the beginning of trouble with the  liver and kidneys. >  Kidney disease and rheumatism  are not usually the first indication  of a deranged system, but these  troubles follow unheeded headaches;  constipation and bilious attacks.  Because of that direct and combined action on the liver, kidneys  and bowels, Dr. Chase's Kidney-  Liver Pills are effective in whatever stage of such dreangements  they may be used, except when the  structure of the kidneys has been  wasted away by Bright's disease.  What we would emphasize, however, is the advantage of beginning  this treatment at the first indication  of trouble with the liver. It is  the liver which first feels the result  of overeating because of its difficulty  in filtering the blood. Keep the  liver right by the timely use of  Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills and  you not only prevent headaches,  biliousness and constipation, but entirely escape derangements of the  kidneys, which are at once eo dreadfully painful and fatal.  Mr. Henry Borgnardt, Horse Hills,  Alta., writes: "I used Dr, Chase's  Kidney-Liver Pills for dyspepsia and  am satisfied that there is no better  medicine for this ailment and liver  complaint."  Mrs. E. Husband, Moore street,  St. Catharines, Ont., states: "I was  seriously afflicted with indigestion  and stomach trouble for sixteen  years. Finally I became so bad that  I could scarcely eat anything without suffering terrible distress. Gradually I grew weaker and more  emaciated, and though treated by  three doctors and a specialist, I received no benefit.

The St. Denis railway tunnel is no  longer used for the purpose for which  it wns originally intended, The  ground therein has been cut up into  ridges divided from each other by  means of furrows, upon which whole  battalions of mushrooms are now  flourishing. In Scotland a company  is now growing mushrooms in a  tunnel 3.000 feet long. It was originally built by the North British  railway, and is sixty feet below the  streets of Edinburgh.  Once  Onlv.

"Few of us get what we want In this  world," said a bright woman the other  day to a young girl who dropped all  her old-time friends and- occupations because of the perfidy of a lover, "but if  we will take the second best, or even  what we don't want, and try to make  something out of It, we will find that  . there' Is plenty left to live for and en-  doy." t  That woman lived up to her principles. She had married a man who stripped her of her girlish illusions within  a few weeks of her wedding day, but she  accepted him as he was, made the most  of his few good qualities and the least  of his many bad ones, and transferred  her ambitions'to her children. She had  wretched health, but In-spite cf it she  filled her days with her friends, her  books, her household duties. She lived  out of doors as much as possible, gathered the young people of the neighborhood about her and took a heart interest in their hopes and plans. She had  missed perhaps the great happiness she  had dreamed of, but withal she got a  good deal out of life.  t The women who get the most out of  life need-not-be clever nor talented,'nor  beautiful.

'  /T\HE outdoor world is, perhaps,  I the' correct place for plants,  . ������������������������������������������ bu,t we, nevertheless, usually  like to have some in the house  near us. 'especially in winter, when  the outdoor1 world yields us so little  in the way of plant life. The city  dweller has little or no choice in the  matter, as often there is no garden"  bilt that made in the window.  The successful appearance of house  plants depends largely on the receptacles ih which they are arranged.  The handsomest of plants Jn an ugly  pot loses half its pleasing effect, and  .a row of small plants and cuttings  struggling for existence in odd tin  cans is a depressing sight, "and little  likely to cheer us during the dark  winter days. It will, therefore, repay  us to have some artistic Mower stands  and boxes in which our finest specimens can be shown to the best ad- \  vantage.  Red earthenware flower pots, with  saucers to match, have much to recommend them, for they are plain and  honest, and when pot and saucer are  kept clean the color seldom clashes  with Its surroundings.' A growing,  plant in. a room always forms a - centre to which the eye is drawn, and is,  therefore, an opportunity to use some  decorative stand or box which shall  add to Its beauty.  LESSONS FROM THE JAPANESE  The Japanese are exceedingly felever'  at arranging plants, and with them a  , special flower has a special pot, one  not being seen without the other.  The orange tree-and its    box illus-  _.trated_iSia.-combination_of_thls.-Jcind,_.  the form and color of the box being  considered  in  conjunction  with    the  tree.   It can be quite easily made of  half-inch pine,   and  if  its  Inside  di  mensions are eight and a half inchet  | square an empty biscuit tin can b������  9 used as an inner receptacle to bolt.  the soil. The box should be put together with small nails, these being  driven below the surface of the wood  and the holes filled with putty. The  edges of the box will be improved by  being slightlj rounded, and the whole  box must.be sandpapered smooth previous to staining and decorating.  A dead-black sta?. is next applied,  *  both inside and out, two coats being  given to Insure a good surface.   The  design must then be drawn   in   and*   ,  painted with oil colors thinned with  .turpentine.   The    rectangular    background   of   the   blossoms   and   the  curved space behind the leaves are to  be deep peacock blue, the blossoms a  rich purple and the leaves,and stems  olive   green.    Slight  shading  can  be  given to the ".lossoms and leaves with  deeper tones of their respective colors.  The final effect, when the orange tree  is in place, will ber exceeding rich, as  the  touch  of  purnle  brings  out  the   -  deep gold of the fruit, and the dead",  black tends to intensify all the colors.  A window garden which offers accommodation for eight or ten plants is desirable. : Its construction should not be  difficult for the amateur carpenter, especially if soft wood, such as pine, is  used. The length will be governed by  the window at which it is to be used,  and the width and height by the size  of the flower pots., The uprights should  be an inch and a quarter square, and  should be chosen free from knots, 'ihe  caps on the tops of these uprights are  cut from inch material, beveled to tit  the inch and a-quarter material. Half-  inch wood will be sufficiently strong tor  the sides of the b.ox, but for the bottom, the small shelves, brackets and  "cross-pieces���������inchrboards^must-be-usea.���������  A zinc inner lining can be used to hold  the soil, although a better would be to  have a shallow zinc tray fitted to the  bottom of. the box and then use ordinary flower pots to hold the plants.  If Vie tops of the pots are hidden by a  layer of green moss the plants will show  tq much better advantage.  When the woodwork is completed, it  must be sandpapered smooth, and then:  stained and oiled. A soft moss-green  would look well, with a dull polish,  given by means of repeated coats of oil  rubbed in with a soft cloth. Tbe slight  design on the side should then be painted in with oil colors, thinned with turpentine, a dull pink being used for the  flowers, and a darker shade of green  for the leaves and stems, the whole being outlined with Vandyke brown.  FOB HALL OR LANDING .'  A flower pedestal suitable for a hall  or. spacious landing on a stairway is-  also illustrated.    It should be about  four and  a  half  feet  high and  the  four  uprights  made  from  good pine-  one inch and a half square.   The base  must be made as heavy and solid as  possible, and can best be built up of  inch  boards,   with  the  edges  neatly-  beveled to form a moulding. It should,  be eighteen   inches   square,  and the.  four uprights' must be firmly screwed  through from underneath, and further  strengthened  by  four  pieces of inch  material six inches wide, as shown in  the illustration.   The shelves, top and  brackets are also of inch wood.  After  it  has been   sandpapered   smooth a  suitable  finish  would be to paint lt  ivory white, with an eggshell finish.  Two or  three  coats must be given,,  and  the  sandpaper should  be again,  used before the final coat. Five glazed,  earthenware potB will be required ot  a pale peacock blue color, and thick  "feit~mats-of-the-same-eolor-shouid-Dftf7  placed  on  the  shelves  for them  to  stand on.   The result will be a most-  pleasing    color    scheme,    the,, ivory  white and pale,blue well setting off  the delicate green foliage of ferns and  UerbAps some dainty pale blossoms.  \  ADVICE BY MRS.

They would look at her and then  at me, and It was their ba'ulln' mo  around that had roused me up. I  wasn't sober ylt. you understand, but  could reason things out aftor a fashion.  "'Why don't you git the gun and  shoot the b'ars?' I called to the old woman, but she never 'poured to notice  me. The b'ars did. however. They  turned from her to me and begun a  ���������sort o* hosspjay. One of them fetched  me a sort'; of'cuff'on':"the ear that  stretched me out and made my head,,  ring fur a week nrt'er, aud then they  begun pjayln' ball with my body. I  knowed them fur b'ars, aud I kuowed  that It would be all play until I tried  to pit away from them or fit back.  "Well, siih, I can't begin to tell you  what them thar bars put me through  that olght. They rolled me over and  3ver; they dragged .me about feet first  and head tii'st:, tbey pujled me down to  the pigpen, and then pulled me back;  tbey used their teeth and claws only  In play, but they loft marks behind  that didn't go away fur two months.

Thoy got tired of tbo  play, but they wasn't through wltb mo  then. Tbey begau to growl aud snow  sign of madness, and I called out to  the old woman:  '"Mnry, can't you see tbat they all  are dun glttln' mad?'  ,MI kin,' she said, speakJn' fur tbe  first timo nnd speakin' mighty keor*  lessly at tbat   ,  "They all will begin to brto anil  claw lu almost now.'

"Not a word o* thanks!" ihe tinker  exclaimed. "Wrath o' Godl I fear  there is but oue thing would soften  him."  "And what Is that?"  "A club," said Darrel. "But God forgive me! I must put away anger. Soon  it went about that Brooke was to marry the widow. All were delighted, for  each party would be in the nature of  a punishment. God's justice! They did  deserve each other."  Darrel shook with happiness and relighted his pipe.  "Mayhap ye've seen the dear lady,"  Darrel went ont. "She is large, bony,  quarrelsome���������a weaver of some fifty  years���������neither amiable nor fair to look  "Broofee, poor man, he got the worst of  it."  upon. Every one knows her���������a survivor o' two husbands an' many a battle o' high words.  " 'Is it a case o' foreclosure, Brooke?'  says I to him one day in the road.  ' " "No, sir,' he snaps out. 'I had a little mortgage on her furniture, but I'm  going t' marry her for a helpmeet. Sho  is a great worker an' neat an' savin'.'  " 'An' headstrong,' says I. 'Ye must  have patience with her.'  "'I can manage her,' said Brooke.  'The first morning after we are married I always say to my wife: "Here's  the breeches. Now if ye want 'em,  take 'em, an' I'll put on tbe dress."'  "He looked wise, then, as if 'twere  a great argument.  "'Always?' says I, 'God bless thee,  *t)B an odd habit.'  "Well, the boast o' Brooke, went from  . one to another an' ot last to the widow's ear. They say a look o' firmness  an' resolution came into her face, an'  late in August they were married of an  evening at the home o' Brooke. Well,  about then, I bad been having trouble."  "Trouble?" said Trove.  "It*, was another's trouble���������that of a  client o' mine, a poor woman out In  the country. Brooke had a mortgage  on ber cattle, an' she could not pay, an'  I undertook to help ber. I had some  money due me, but was unable to put  me hand on it, That day before the  wedding I went to tbe old siunor.  " 'Brooke, I came to see about the  Martha Vaughn mortgage,' says I,"  "Martha VaughnI" said Trove, turn*  ing quickly,  "Yes; one o' God's people," said the  tinker.  "Ye may havo seen ber,"  "I bave soon her," said Trove.  ���������"At 10 o'clock tomorrow I shall  foreclose,' says Brooke, waving bis fist.  " 'Give ber a little time-till the day  after tomorrow.   Man, It is not much  'toask,'says I.  ������������������ 'Not an hour,' says be, an' ! came  away.  "But, God be praised," said Darrel,  "Brooke wai unable to foreclose that  day, an' tbe next was Sunday, an'  bright an' early on Monday morning I  paid tbe debt."  "Mrs, Vaughn hue a d-rtnght-T," rttl-1  Trovp, WYisrtinjt.  "Aye, an' she hath a pretty redness  In her lip," said Darrel quickly, "on'  a merry flash In ber eye. Thou bast  yet far to go, boy. Look not upon her  tv'.r cr the will tr!j? thee. Py -in' *������������������**.  boy; by an' by."  There was an odd trait In Parrel, In  familiar talk bo often made use of "yo"  -a shortened "you"-ln speaking to  those of old acquaintance, but when  there was msn or topic to rouse him  Into higher dignity it was more often  "then" or "thou" with him. Trove* made  tu������ answer and shortly went away.  C  CHAPTER XI.  nniBTMAB eve bad eon* and  the year of 1850.    For two  ���������rTtrtrkts suvw bad lUsbfed o*������*r  I tne creaking gable of the for-  ' est above Martha Vaughn's to pile in  drifts or go hissing down the long hillside. A freezing blast had driven it to  the roots of the stubble and sown lt  deep and rolled lt Into ridges and  whirled it into heaps and mounds or  flung it far in long waves that seemed  to plunge, as if part of a white sea,  and break over fence and roof and  chimney in their down rush. Candle  I and fire light filtered through frosty  'panes and glowed dimly under dark  fathoms of the snow sheet now flying  full of voices. Mrs. Vaughn opened  her door a moment to peer out. ',A  great horned owl flashed across the  light beam With a snap and rustle of  wings and a cry "Oo-oo-oo!" lonely,  like that, as if it were the spirit of  darkness and the cold wind. Mrs.  Vaughn started, turning quickly and  closing the door.  "Ugh, what a sound!" said Polly.   "It  reminds me of a ghost story."  - "Well," said the widow, "that thing  belongs  to the  only   family  o'   real  ghosts in the world."  "What was it?" said a small boy.  There were Polly and three children  about the fireplace.  "An air cat," said she, shivering, her  back to the fire. "They go round at  night in a great sheet o' feathers an'  v.  rufitle lt, an' I declare they do cry  lonesome.   Got terrible claws too!"  "Ever hurt folks?" one\ of the boys  Inquired.  "No; but they're just like some kinds  o' people���������ye want to let 'em alone;  Any one that'll shake hands .with an  owl would be fool enough to eat fish-  hooks._-^:Theyire��������� notC^^  ship, those owls." .  Presently she sat down by a table,  where there were candles, and began  reading aloud from a county paper..  She read anecdotes of men remarkable for* their success and piety, and an  account of Indian fighting, interrupted,  as a red man lifted his tomahawk to  slay, by the rattle of an arrow .on the  buttery door.  It was off the cross gun of young  Paul. He had seen everything in the  story and bad taken aim at the said Indian just in the nick of time.  Sbe read also the old sweet story of  the coming of the Christ Child. > -,  "Some say it was a night like this,"  said she as the story ended.  Paul bad listened, his thin, sober  face glowing.  "I'll bet Santa Claus was good to  blm," said he.* "Brought him sleds an'  candy an' nuts an' raisins an' new  boots an' everything." ,  "Why do you think so?" asked bis  mother, who was now reading Intently.  '"Cos he was a good' boy. He  wouldn't cry If be bad to fll) the wood  box, would he, mother?" ��������� K ,  That query beld a bidden rebuke for  bis brother,Tom,  "I do not know, but I do not think  be was ever saucy or spoke a bad  word."  "Huh!" said Tom reflectively. "Then  I guesB be never bad no mustard piaster put on him," <"  The widow bade him hush.  "Er never had mitbln' done to blm,  neither," tbe boy continued, rocking  vigorously In bis little chair.  "Mustn't speak so of Christ," tbe  mother added.  "Waal," said Paul, rising, "I guess  I'll bang up my stockin's,"  "Ono']) do, Paul," eald bli lister Polly, with n knowlug air.  "No, 'twon't," the boy Insisted.  "Thoy ain't half tin big as yours. I'm  goin' t' try It, anyway, an' see wbat  be'll do to 'cm."  He drow off his stockings and pinned  them carefully to the braces on the  back of a clmlr.  "Well, my son," sold Mrs, Vaugbn,  looking over the top of hor paper, "It's  bad weather, Sunta Claus may not be  able to get here,"  "Ob, yus, be can," said tbe boy con*  Wdpntly, hut with n llttlw ruilver of  alarm in his voice. "I'm sure be'll  como. Uo has a team of relndoers.  'An' tbe deeper the snow tbe faster  they go."'  Soon the otliors bared tholr feet and  hmirr tholr stock Intra on four chair* In  a row besldo tho first.  Then they all got on tbo bed In tbe  corner and pulled a quilt ovor tbem to  wait Cor Santa Claus. Tbe mother  went on with her reading as tbey chattered.  Sleep bushed them presently. But  for the crackling of tho fire and the  push and whistle of Uie wind that  room had become as a peaceful, silent  cave under tho storm,  Tbe widow roso stealthily and open*  ed a bureau drawer,  Tbejrownf limp  stockings oegan to iook , cneerriu ana  animated. Little packages fell to their  toes, and the shortest began to reacn  for the floor, but while they were fat  in the foot they were still very lean in  tbe leg.  Her apron empty. Mrs. Vaughn took  lier knitting to the fire and before she  began to ply the needles looked  thoughtfully at her hands. They had  been soft and shapely before the days  of toil. A frail but comely woman she  was, with paletace and dark eyes and  hair prematurely gray.  She had com* west, a girl of nineteen, with her young husband, full of  high hopes. That was twenty-one  years ago, and the new laua had poorly kept its promise.  And the children���������"How many have  you?" a caller liad once inquired. "Listen," said she, "hear 'era. an* you'd say  there were fifteen, but count 'em, an'  they're only four." -.  The low, weathered hbuse and sixty  acres were mortgaged. Even the wilderness had not wholly signed off its  claim. Every year it exacted tribute,  the foxes taking a share of her poultry and the wild deer feeding on her  grain.  (To Be Continued.)  SHELTER FOR THE FLOCK.  THE  KING'S  FOOD.  Sheep Can Be Made Comfortable A  Very Little Cost. |  As it is economical on the part a  any owner..of any animals to feed ������wel  during the winter and to keep thi  6tock in the best- condition, it^is thi  best plan for him to provide' god  warm shelter for all his animals. Thii  refers most particularly to a flock o  sheep,    says    the,   American    Sheej  Explanation of the Ancient Board of  Green Cloth.  With regard to the board of green  cloth it is one of the most ancient  institutions of the English court, is  composed of the lord steward, of the  treasurer, and of the controller of the  household, as well as of several minor officials, and derives its name from  the green cloth on the table at which  the officials sit on the occasion of  their meetings. It has charge not only  of the accounts and of the victualing  of the royal household, but likewise of  the exercise of a number of legal prerogatives and immunities pertaining  to the residences of tho sovereign.  The board of green cloth is, in fact,  the council of the lord high steward,  who in ancient days bore the title of  Beneschal, and who, subject of course,  to the sovereign, enjoys jurisdiction,  independent of the ordinary tribunals of tho land, over all the inmates  of the royal palaces and royal parks,  and over the people connected therewith. Indeed, the lord steward, in  conjunction with his board of green  cloth, has the rights of life and death  over offenders, and the power of selecting a jury from among the servants of the sovereign.  In these modern times it is doubtful whether  the  lord  high  steward  would be willing to exercise his prerogative of sitting in judginant upon  a case of felony, such as, for instance,  a murder committed within the pre-,  cincts' of   Buckingham    Palace   or,  Windsor Castle, and he would prob* j  ably, delegate his authority to one of;  the judges of the High Court of Justice to deal with the case.   In fact,  he does something of the kind at the  Ascot races.   The Ascot race course,  says    the,   American  Breeder. It is commonly thought, ani   as  everybody knows, forms part of  the thought is commonly expressed   the  royal domain  of  Windsor,   and  that sheep, being provided with i  thick wpolly coat in the winter, di  not require any other shelter^ than i  board fence and a comfortable yard ti  pass the nights in. It is a very com  mon accident for such persons to los*  a few sheep and lambs every winta  by exposure to cold and neglect. Ani  mals suffer from cold when they an  shivering in an exposed yard on t  cold winter's night quite as much ai  their owners may do under similai  exposure. And it is a waste of money  , for food is .the same as money to thi  owner of a flock of sheep. Of coursi  this error reduces the,profits from i  ���������--flock-of-6heep--that-is^exposed~tii-th������  cold.V..  ' It will cost very little to make th<  sheep comfortable.    A  rough    boarl  shed that will break the force of thi  cold winds will be sufficient. It shouW  have a tight roof that it may be dry  Dry cold is far more bearable thai  a much better temperature with a well  skin. But the wind of a oold freezing,  night when the sheep fleeces are wa  ter looked will kill shefcy that woul������  be comfortable if their skins    wer������  dry and protected by the dry fleece!  It is quite often   thought   suffideri  that the sheep were sufficiently pro  teoted by their woolly coat althougl  exposed to rainstorms which froze uu  fleece on their baoks. The truth is thai  the fleece of a sheep should not b*  considered in this part of their man j  ageineht as any   greater   protection  than the hairy coat of a cow, and thi  flock should nave as much ������are foil  their protection as all other animali  ot the farm get.  Ventilation is a very important pari  of the management of all shelters for  sheep���������indeed, for all animals. Thi  rule should be to give a square yard  of floor space for every sheep in shed)  or covered yards at''the'.least. This ii  twice an much as the sheep will cov  er, thus leaving half tbe floor for moving npace, The sheep will habituftlli  He close together, and thus there will  be ample room for the wanderers ti  move about comfortably. Some of thi  sheep will bunch together, but thii  will be perfectly Bate, for sheep maj  safely crowd together if there is ample room for nil and none pile up on  the others. Ths only safe rulo in lh������  management of sheep is to whollj  prevent by sufficient precautions anj  risk of panics in the yards or sheds,  as may happen by the presence of i  dog in the place. Strange dogs should  always be tapt (rom the sheep. Th������  home dog may go anywasre amon|  them with safety, but a strange do|  may cause n panio in which somi  sheep will be lost. Thus the fenoos oi  the open sheep yards should be well  protected by two strand ol barbed  wire on thn tor,  Prof. Maurice Hutton.

' ���������    ' a  Powers of the Lord Steward.  Accordingly the lord steward of the  household each year secures.the services of the senior police - magistrate  of the metropolis for the Ascot week,  and the magistrate in question, by  virtue of the authority "delegated to  him by the lord steward, holds court  in his name in a room provided for  "the~purpwe~ben^  and inflicts penalties on the thieves  and toughs who are brought before  him charged with offenses committed upon the racecourse.  The last occasion on which the lord  steward dealt with a case of homicide was when the mysterious murder,  of Senlis, the Swiss valet of the Duke  of Cumberland, afterward first King  of Hanover, took place in St. James'  Palace. The duke was the subject of  suoh ganeral execration that popular  sentiment did not hesitate to lay the  crime at the door of this son of George  III. But the" coroner's jury, recruited  by the lord steward ana by the board  of green cloth from among the King's  servants, absolved the duke of all  responsibility and rendered a verdict  of murder by unknown persons.  The lord high steward receives his  charge immediately from the sovereign, and by virtue of his office takes  precedence of all dukes who do not  happen to be princes of the reigning  house. The immediate direction of  the royal, household "below stairs,"  that is, the kitchens, the domestio servants, etc., is in his hands, and in  those of the board of green cloth. He  and the latter are responsible for the  expenditures and for the supplies. But  virtually his authority extends over  the entire oourt, even the chamber,  the chapel, and the stables. The lord  steward's insignia of office is a white  wand or staff, which he carries in the  presenoe of the sovereign, but which  on state ocoasions, when the monarch  is not present, is borne before him by  a footman, bareheaded, On the death  of the sovereign from whom he has  received the white staff he breaks it  over the royal bier at the close ot  the of������equiei"Ho indicate that hii office has ceased and that there is no  longer any board of green cloth,  Fate ef Sunken Ships.

Luxuries of the British Capital In Am-  cient Days���������The Social Status  of the Trader.  Not a few interesting things come*-  out  when  we  study  the  history   of  mediaeval London. One of them is the*  eocial status of the trader. The fashionable contempt for his business is  of comparatively recent growth, not  much more than a century old.   No-  precise date can-"be given; but in the*  earlier part of the eighteenth century  the feeling on the matter was not what  it became in the nineteenth.  For hundreds of years before then,  the connection between the, country  and the city, the country gentlefolk  and the,city trader, had been most,  intimate.  No more striking evidence*  of this can be given than the analysis*  of the origin of the 203 Lord Mayors-  from Henry Fitz-Aylwin down to the*  year 1633, a period of 210 years.   Of  these 156 were country born.  When  we consider what the mediaeval village was, -how limited was the horizon of all but the lord of the manor  or a knight here and there, it is not ���������  difficult  to   understand   why  many  lads of good birth Bought the opportunities offered by apprenticeship in*  the city.  Camden is quoted to show  that the nobility thought with shame-  of the merchant's career. He himself  declared "mercantura non derogat no-  bilitati."     These same country lads-  supplied the city, as indeed they do-  now, ^with the necessary fresh blood  and energy.  Another important point is the fact,  that London was always great as a  distributing not as a manufacturing  centre.   And this fact no legislation,  no system of duties could alter. Fraternities of foreign merchants established themselves  in  their   fortified?  houses and kept their trade jealously  to  themselves.   The crown,  so long-  as it got- its tolls and duties, was  content. Now and then, indeed, it endeavored to restrict their increasing-  trade, but its ordinances were always-  evaded. For London wanted what they  alone could supply.  It could supply  itself well  enough with necessaries,  as Sir Walter Besant says, but neither London nor England has ever  been content with necessaries.  The mediaeval city of 500 years age-  was as full of luxuries assis the ci$,y  of to-day���������the best shopping place im  northern Europe in the jays of Ed- ���������_  ward HI., as it is in the, days of ;Ed-"  ward VII. Entire fleets laden with)  nothing but wine came to London.  Once or twice there were periods when*,  a man could "get dead drunk for twopence," as the fascinating invitation,  of a later time put it; but the drink  had by that time been changed from*  wine to gin. Mediaeval London had,  indeed, the best of everything, paying  for it all in wool. So Capgrave has-  it: "Our enemies laugh at us; they  say: 'Take the ship oft your gold noble and impress a sheep instead.'"  (This was the noble of Edward III.)  Napoleon repeated the taunt, but the  laugh was not in the end with the  foreigner. And how, it may be asked,  did these good things go backward  and forward? Not always securely.  We could not always command the  Channel, though we still claimed the-  sovereignty of the seas, x In this respect thingB reached their worst, we*  are told, in the 14th century. Foreign  merchants settled in London and'  traded. They came from Venice, Rouen, Genda, Florence, Lombardy, Antwerp and Dantzig, And so the period'  was a halcyon time for pirates, lor  lords of manorB who had foreshores,  for fl8hermen and for wreckers,���������-From  The Spectator.  Wolieley's Drsad ,of Invasion,  Lord Wolseley has written two letters to Lord Wemyss on the possibility of the invasion of England. Tha  following are some of the most striking passages!  "England can never have an efficient army during peace, and she  must therefore aooept the rebuffs and  calamities which are always in store  for the nation that is content to follow the breed of cowards who usually  direct her great affairs.  "The day will come when she will  violently and suddenly lose her former 'fighting renown to such an unmistakable extent that the plucky  fishwives will march upon Downing  street, and it they can catch iti usual inmates, will rend them,  "One party is as bad as the other,  and I hope and pray that when tha  national misfortune of a great defeat  at lea overtakes us, followed by the  invasion of England or Ireland���������very  possibly the latter ��������� that John Bui!  will turn and rend the Jawers and  talkers who prevent us from being  prepared to meet invasion."  i  ��������� ������  )  *u������nr,y una his t-are.

Lord Graham, who last summer  married the only child and sole heiress of the late Duke of Hamilton,  thus securing not only a charming  wife but the richest matrimonial catch  in the United Kingdom, is determined  to play a more useful role in life than  that of a mere beneficiary of the great  fortune of his marchioness. For he  has joined one of the biggest shipbuilding firms on the Clyde as an  active member, and, although a partner, is so earnest about the matter  that he is putting ih a sort of apprenticeship in the various departments  and is just now engaged in fitting out  a deep sea steamer with suction gas  engines. He is not merely superintending the job, writes the Marquise  de Fontenoy, but is leading a hand,  garbed in overalls, taking all the  bruises and bumps that come his way.  Lord Graham is the eldest son and  heir of the Puke of Montrose, a good  looking, wholesome young chap, full  of energy and determination to be a  useful citizen. He was trained for the  royal navy, but was turned down on  account of a defect in his hearing.  He thereupon dropped his title, joined  a big sailing ship as a sailor before  the mast, making several long voyageB  in that capacity, then became third,  second, and first mate, and finally  won his diploma as a sailing master.  Incidentally he learned by personal  experience much valuable knowledge  concerning the merchant navy, its  needs, and its interests. And whenever he speaks about the matter in  the House of Commons he always is  listened to with respect as an authority on the subject. He served through  the Boer war with distinction, tried  his hand at politics in South Africa,  and gave the thing up in disgust owing to the difficulty of reconciling  conscience and self-respect with the  necessities of party strategy, and returned to England to wed his present  wife, whose other landed possessions  ���������nclude the big Scottish island of Ar-  ram.

The interest and  sinking fund amounted to $9,811.  Seven hundred dollars was paid over  to the City Council as office rent, and  the balance was spent in extensions  to the system.

The nail on the middle finger grows faster than any of the  other nails, and that on the thumb  grows slowest. It is also said that  the nails on the right hand grow  faster than those on the left hand.  According to the rate of growth  stated, the average time taken for  each finger nail to grow its full  length is about four and a half  months, and at this rate a man seventy years old would have renewed  his nails one hundred and eighty-  six times.
