The pulse of women generally beats  at a slightly faster rate than that of  men. It may be said that when a person is at rest his pulse, that of any  adult may be from seventy-five to  .eighty times a minute. Great variation  ������xists in different, individuals in respect of the number of beats. After  exercise the puJse quickens because of  the stimulation of the heart, and the  same result applies to the effects of  taking food. A dose of alcohol will also  stimulate the pulse somewhat, just as  the use of tobacco, especially In excess,  will tend to have an opposite effect-  namely, that of lowering the rate of  the pulse, because of the depression of  the heart which results. In fevers and  Inflammatory diseases the pulse rate  tends to be very much Increased and  also Iu respect of its character. Instead  of beating quietly the blood vessel in  such cases exhibits a very full and  ���������hounding movement. On the other  ������tiand, where depression exists and the  temperature of the body falls, the  .pulse may be unnaturally slow and Its  ���������character weak. Physicians are accustomed to distinguish other characteristics in the pulse, such as become valuable hints In the discovery and determination of disease. The practical lesson we learn here is that where the  pulse continues for any length of time  to have its beats quickened to an un-  matural degree and where especially a  ���������rise of the temperature or heat of tbe  /body accompanies these symptoms we  ���������ought to suspect some kind of feverish  ���������condition or other to be represented.  The pulse alone forms a valuable  ���������enough guide to this state of the body,  but Its value Is very much Increased If  to the information given us by the  pulse we add that which the use of the  thermometer supplies.  NAMES OF DAYS.  OTne  Latin  and   Saxon  Terms  From  Wuleb Thejr Are Derived.  "Our names for each day are derived  from the Saxons, who probably borrowed the week from some eastern  (people, substituting names of their  ���������own divinities for those of the clas-  :fi,!<!aL?^8��������� '5s tg easily seen when the  ~~ wsmea"������e"tIOTIp������a7        -^-i���������  Latin.

Dies Veneris... Frlga'a day... Friday.  J3Jp* Batumi....Seterne's day. Saturday.  Among the ancients the belief la the  '���������Influence of the planets upon tbe life  >-of men was so strong that many in selecting their dally ornaments would  -wear only the gem associated with tbe  s-planet of the day.   Thus on Sunday  ������only  yellow  gems  and  gold  should  ������������������adorn tiie fingers.   Pearls and white  stones, excepting diamonds, belonged  to the Moon day. Tuesday, day of Mars,  claimed rubles and all stones of fiery  luster. Thursday, Thor's day, demanded amethysts and deep colored stones  of sanguine tlut, while Friday, dominated by Venus, reigned over the emerald, color of jealousy, which Is lore's  ehadow.   Saturday, dedicated to Saturn, oldest of the gods, had for Its  distinctive talisman the most splendid  of  all  gems,   tbe  diamond.  GIRLS ENTERING  WOMANHOOD  'FIND BILEANS A BOON.  Mothers who have daughters just  on the critical oprderland over  winch the girl passes into the fuller  lne oi womanhood, will find Bileans  a great boor-.. They make rich, red  blond, and strengthen and invigorate the internal organs involved in  the great change. Mrs. T. Beadle,  of Home Place, Toronto, savs: "Mv  daughter, Elsie (13), was fooling fa;  from well this winter. -She com  plained of frequent headache, and  was always weakly, tired and  drowsy. She seemed altogether  without energy or strength. Each  morning her tongue was coated and  her appetite failed. Sbe was sometimes so dizzy tbat on stooping she  almost fell, and she was also troubled a great deal with constipation.  One single box of Bileans made a  world of difference in her, and so I  continued to give her this remedy.  Within a few weeks thev built her  up wonderfully and they are keeping her in the best of health."  Bileans also cure anaemia, green  sickness, debility, sick headache  constipation, piles, rheumatism,' sciatica, and all liver and kidney  ailments. They tone up the system  and enable it to throw off colds,  chills, etc. All druggists and stores  sell Bileans at 50c. a box, or obtainable from the' Bilean Co., Toronto,  for price.   6 boxes sent for $2.50.  it is possible for a man to avoid  "attending his own weading, but he  can't get out of enacting the star  role at his own funeral.  BABY'S BEST FRIEND.  Baby's Own Tablets have saved  many a previous little life. There  is no other medicine to equal them  for stomach and bowel troubles,  colds, simple fevers or teething troubles. They are good for children of  all ages���������from the new born babe to  the well grown child, .And the mother has the guarantee of a government analyst that they do not contain opiates or harmful 'drugs. Mrs.  John C. Gildart, Prosser Brook, N.  B., says: "I have proved that  Baby's Own Tablets are a great help  to-mothersr~and���������are���������baby-s���������"best"  friend. They act almost like magic  and'I will"always keep them in the  house." The Tablets are sold by  druggists or by mail at 25 cents a  box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.  The market reports announce fat  money is steady.

It eradicates from the system the last  vestige of the disease aud its cures are  pornianent.*s-74.  The Poet and the Beauty.  One of the finest houses in southern  England is Penhurst Place, the birthplace of Sir Philip Sidney. Under the  trees of its park Edmund Waller paid  his addresses to the haughty Lady  Dorothea, whom he celebrated as Sach-  arissa. But the heart of Lady Dorothea  Sidney���������who was the most beautiful  woman of her time���������was untouched by  Waller's amatory verses, and she rejected tbe poet In favor of the Earl of  Sunderland. Many years afterward the  countess met Waller and, reminding  bim sentimentally of the old days at  Penhurst. asked him when he would  again write verses about her. "When,  madam." said the poet rudely, "you are  as young and as handsome as you were  then." .  Properties of Chlorine.  Chlorine is a greenish yellow gas  with a disagreeable smell. It is soluble In cold water, only slightly soluble  In hot water. It destroys color In wet  fabrics and Is also, a strong disinfectant. Both of these properties are said  to be due to its power of decomposing  hydrogen compounds, such as water,  combining with the hydrogen and liberating oxygen, which In a nascent state  oxidizes coloring matter, rendering it  colorless. As a disinfectant it oxidizes  the germs of disease and is in consequence largely used for this purpose.  Strange Mistake.  Old Mrs. Jones entered the drawing  room unexpectedly and spoiled a very  pretty tableau. '���������*���������'.  "I was just whispering a secret in  Cousin Jennie's ear," explained Charlie.

In the days of river driving on tbe  Kennebec river In Malno old Uuclo Jim  Gilbert was a woll known character.  Ho was hale and hearty and bad an  ���������anormous appetite. Tbo men used to  uome down the river with a drive of  logs aud get a meal at a tavern In  Augusta. One morning, arriving lata  and with appetite sharpened, old Uncle Jim sat down with tbo first sot of  tnon and ato diligently during tbe time  these men made a meal. A new set of  men came and still Uncle Joe ate  steadily. A third set came, and the  tavern keeper, becoming alarmed, tried  to hurry up the protracted meal by  saying, "Better drink your coffee, un*  de, and have anothor cup!"  "No," said tbe old roan. "I never  -drink till I'm half through.''  Almost 7 per cent of  the cost of  operating a railway is for coal.

BRONCHITIS IS  'COLD ON THE CHEST  And   the   Most Prompt   and   Satisfactory  Treatment  is  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine  Acute bronchitis is none other  than what is- commonly known as  "cold on the chest" and is marked  by difficult breathing and tightness  or soreness oi the chest.  As a preventative Dr. Chase's  syrup of Linseed' and Turpentine  will, if taken in time, positively  prevent the symptoms of bronchitis  or cold in tho chest.  As a cure it- will entirely overcome even the long-standing cases of  chronic bronchitis, and it should  not be forgotten that, when neglected, bronchitis usually returns time  and time again until the victim is  worn out by its debilitating effects.  It is largely the extraordinary success of pr. Chase's "Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine as a cure for  bronchitis that has made this treatment so popular. People quite rightly reason that what will cure bronchitis will make short work of croup  and ordinary coughs and colds.  Mrs. Richmond Withrow, Shuben-  acadie,, Hants Co., N.S., writes: "I  have used Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and Turpentine with good success. My second daughter was troubled with bronchitis from the age of  three weeks. Oftentimes I thought  she would choke to death. The several remedies we got did not seem to  be of much use, but the first dose of  Dr. Chase's Syrup of Linseed and  Turpentine brought relief, and further  treatment made a thorough cure.  This trouble used to come back from  time to time,, but the cure is now  permanent.

PROPORTION IN COLOR AND  FURNISHINGS  iROPORTION   in   home decoration  cannot be much understood, else  why is it so conspicuously absent  irom most homes? Occasionally we find  a perfect home, where proportion was  not thought of, but instead the home-  maker had an inborn sense of fitness  Which stood her, in good stead.  Proportion, ini decoration, is not very  tangible; most of us can understand it  as regards size, but proportion in color  is more difficult to grasp  not possess these two things would do  well to put themselves in the hands ot a-  good   decorator'oi trusty friend   when,  choosing,their color scheme.  It is hard to know just how much or  one color goes best with another. Wfr  all know that there should only be a.  limited amount of a strong, heavy color  in a room, but just how much that limited amount is few can estimate cor-  lantageoua.  rectly  Sometimes a color when put with an-   ���������-���������,.. other detracts from it; others set it oiz.  'Most of us know, if we only stop to so it is Important to choose colors or  think about itr^that^a large, heavy shades that are mutually advi  chair should not be placed beside *  small, dainty table, and vice versa;  that a small room should not be crowded with massive pieces of furniture, and  that the walls of a low-ceillnged room  should not be divided or broken four  or five times. >v  Proportion in ornamentation is an*  other important point to be considered,  and to determine Just how much ornamentation and how much plain surface  goes to make the best sum-total is a  difficult proposition. A small box is  richer with part of it "carved and the  rest Jeft plain for contrast than If It  were carved all over. And this Is true  of the treatment of walls and ceilings,  for costliness and elaboration require  a plain setting to appear to the best advantage.  Proportion, in color, is the hardest to  determine, and requires a trained eye  and sensitive feelings.    Those who do  Green and blue, when fn the right proportion, are a perfect combination. But,  often we see the two together whereto  the green is too strong and the blue  looks weak and insipid, or where then  blue Is too intense; so that the greeta  looks sick and dirty.  The intensity and consplcuousness of  a wall or background should be governed by the furniture and hangings.   If a  room is to have heavy furniture, upholstered  in   plain   dark   materials   an&>  heavy, dark curtains and portieres, the  walls may be somewhat gay; but if tha  room is to be furnished daintily and  with light, figured materials, the walla  should be subdued.  The home-maker who possesses the-'  sense of proportion, combined with a  sense of fitness and suitability, cannot  go far wrong; and her home should have*  a feeling of rest, of comfort, which ia,  one of the surest roads to health an*  hapBlness. DOROTHY, TUKE.  ���������*****v  WHAT DO PEOPLE READ IN  LIBRARIES?  KAR me,  I Just hate to fix  flowers.   I   never   have   just  the right thing to put them  _T in," said,  plaintively, Nancy  Upton, a young bride, one morning, as  she looked in dismay at a large tray of  _flQW,ersJsent���������in_bv���������the_-,gardener  "Now wouldn't you think, with tho  dozens of cut-glass bowls, silver pitcI"P  ers and pottery jugs I got for wedding  presents, I'd always have something my  flowers would look well in���������yet here I  go, falling back on these two old  pressed-glass vases I had in boarding  school, and that hideous old majodica  thing that looks like a soup tureen."  "My dear, you  will  have to start  school of instruction for weddding present givers in what vases not to buy,"  laughed Sally Blair, her guest.  "You know the only reason you cling  to those old relics Is because of their  big mouths. I wonder why not one  person in ten .ever thinks of usefulness  In buying bric-a-brac or vases. It's the  more remarkable since you can get such  perfect pottery and glass in the most,  delectable   shapes, '   \  "The other day, when I was mousing  around in a china store, I saw any  amount of new vases and bowls that  would have delighted your soul, I don't  suppose they cost half so much, for instance, as that Satsuma Jug of yours  that has an opening about as big as a  thimble; but If you had them now you  wouldn't be letting all those perfect  flowers get faded while you hunted for  something to put them in, and Bcolded  steadily meanwhile."

The other night  the Impertinent One was curious  enough to examine each of these  tables, to see what books her, neighbors ha,d left there. The library was  nearly empty, and she had plenty of  .opportunity for observation.  On table No. 1 there lay six books.  Two of these were late novels and  three others light or sensational fiction a few years older. But quite in  the corner, looking rather ashamed of  the company he was found in, lay dear  old Mr. Pickwick, and as the Impertinent One picked him reverently up a  strip of paper covered with Greek  characters fell out.  The Impertinent One thanked heaven  for one scholar and passed on.  Table No. 2 had evidently been occu-,  pied by a student preparing his next  day's work. There wero literal translations of Latin, French and German,  masters and an "Introduction to Plane  Trigonometry."  But the'only open book was "The  Bab Ballads," open at the tale of Alice  Brown, the robber's lovely daughter,  and the Impertinent One smiled all the  way across to Table No. 3.  Two persons of widely varying tastes  had recently used  this table.    On ono  side were three detective stories and a  .   , treatise on "CampJLife In theWpodsl;  oh the other were two "General Histories," a "History of Natural Philosophy" and a translation of the Koran_  which last stood at the boundary line,,  and rested confidently against tho most-  lurid of the detective stories.  Table No. 4 was exclusively poetical.  Keats, Wordsworth, Tennyson and  Spenser here held sway, and as the-  Impertinent One glanced at them a,  piece of paper fluttered to the ground.  As she picked lt up she read on it  "Oh, heart of poesie and soul of fire!"  The" earnest-eyed young man at the-  end of the table claimed it at just this,  minutes: "I'm sure the next line ended  in 'lyre,'" muttered the Impertinent  One to herself, as she hastened away.  At Table No. 5 more light novels  caught her sight at one side, but the  other looked strangely familiar. There  were a volume of "King Lear," a biography of Heine and Henry George'*  "The Land Question,". and a copy ot  that dear poet who accompanies the-  Impertinent One wherever she goes.  Then, all at once, she realized with a  start that she was back to her own-  table again, and that the fifth volume,  on which her hand rested, was the*  copy of Poe she had been reading before she left.  "Well,"    remarked    the    Impertinent  Onei  settling down  to a half hour of  solid enjoyment, "they have better taste  _..than I thought they hadl"     -   '  " '    ������    i-s-sTi  AS OTHERS SEE US  bowls in glass that will cost you next to  nothing.

"A glass ot a yellow brownish tint  has some charming shapes, especially  in rather tiny vases modeled In flower  petals to hold a few violets.  "Most flowers look well tn the pair,  yellow radium glass, which has many '  of the same designs and a good deal ol  the rich tinting of that awfully expensive art glass that Mrs. Jones sent  you. There is one vase In a rich deep  yellow, with, a top that turns over o  slender stem like a great yellow Illy,  that Is particularly pretty for a flower  or two.  "Of course, cut-glass vases are always  lovely, but they are usually heavy,  nnd somehow the shapes, as you know  to your sorrow, are never Just right.  But theia aro some pretty new ones  shown this season that have floral designs cut on plain glass, something on  tho rock crystal order, They are  shaped like an old-fashioned quurt  measure.

SELF-WORSHIP  IT'S queer, isn't it, how eaoh one of  us adores his own personal self  much more than any other person,  or any other thing in the world? We-'  are all of us self-centred; we see everything In relation to ourselves, so much'  so, Indeed, that it is often very hard for  us to "put ourselves in somebody else's*  place,"  If some one else says an unkind word  to us and also to tho person with us,  wo have a certain amount of sympathy  for the person who Is with us, but nothing llko the sympathy we have for ourselves, Indeed, half the sorrow In the  world Is caused by oxcesslve sympathy  for one's self, whereas, If we had looked'  out and seen how many other poople,  wero suffering from much keen or sorrows, we should really have considered:  ourselves blessed.  Of courso, there Is really somo excuse  for us, for do we not see ourselves nn  the centres of the universe?

The amount was 68  cents, and Mr. Fay tendered the clerk  a one dollar bill. Change being scarce  In the store, as was often the case during these strenuous times, tiie clerk  passed him some slips of paper with  figures,on them to equal the amount of  change due. Gil looked at tbe slip,  then at the, clerk, and slowly said.  "What's all this?" "Why, that is what  we are giving for change now. When  you get one dollar's.worth, we will redeem theni." replied the clerk, and  Gil went out A day or two after  this occurrence Gil went to the  store again for some tobacco. The  clefk passed out the plug, and Gil  put his hand lu his pocket, pulled out  a handful of pumpkin seeds and handed them to the clerk, saying: "These  are what I am using for change now.

During each winter for two or three  .wears after be bad reached the age of  seven Andrew Jackson was Bent to the  old held school of a Mr. Branch. After  this hp attended the select school which  si Rresbyterlan preacher, the Rev. Dr.  David Humphreys, taught In the Wax-  baw settlement. He appears to have  been going to this higher school lu the  spring of 1780, when the inroad of Tar-  leton created a panic In thnt portion of  the CarollnuB. At Borne later period of  bis youth be Is said to bave attended  tho old Queen college or seuiinury at  Charlotte a couple of terms, but the  time Is not definitely known.  As to education, therefore, lt may be  safely stated that Andrew Jackson enjoyed much more than the ordinary advantage of a backwoods boys of his  time. At the age of ten be had become  so good a reader that be was often  chosen to read the newspaper to the  assembled neighbors, and he remembered with pride In after years that he  baa tliUH had the honor of "reading out  loud" the Declaration of Independonet  upon Its arrival in the Waxhaws.

(Sauetic  Recently a wearied looking little  mother, carrying a small baby, boardeii  a street car nnd took n sent next to  i two men who were earnestly engaged  to conversation. Neither of the men  was very handsome, and It must havo  required considerable nerv% on their  part to hand out their photographs  among their friends unless the pictures  had been previously retouched with  ^andpaper.' In a few minutes the baby  began to cry with a reliable yelp that  could be hoard above the din of the  'Street babble for half a block, and,  with a grouchy glance at the youngster, one of tbe men arose and peevishly remarked to his pair  "I think we had better sit over here,  Jim."  This .uuffallnnt net plainly embarrassed the little mother, but she was  equal to the occasion.  'It won't do a bit of good to change  your seats, gentlemen," said she In a  finely, sarcastic voice.

An -odd figure entered In a swirl of  snow���������a real Santa CRius, the mystery  and blessing of Cedar hill. For five  years every Christmas eve in good or  bad weather he had come to four little  houses on the hill, where, indeed, his  coming had beftn as a godsend.  Whence he came and who he might be  none bad been able to guess. He never  spoke in,his official capacity, and no  citizen of Faraway had such a beard  or figure as this man. Now his fur  coat, his beard and eyebrows were  boary with snow and frost. Icicles  bung from his mustache around the  short clay pipe of tradition. He lowered a great sack and brushed the snow  off it. He had borne it high on his  back, with a strap nt each shoulder.  The sack was now about half full of  things. He took out three big bundles  and laid them on the table. They were  evidently for tbe widow herself, who  quickly stepped to tbe bedside.  "Come children." she whispered, rousing them, "here is Santa Claus."  Tbey scrambled down, rubbing their  eyes. Polly took the hands of the two  small boys and led them near him.  Paul drew his hand away and stood  ���������spellbound, eyes and mouth open. He  watched every motion of the good  saint, who had come to that chair that  held the little stockings. Santa Claus  put a pair of boots on it. They were  cooper toed, with gorgeous front pieces  **T red -morocco at the top .of the .eg.  Then, as if ue had some relish of a  joke, lie took them up, looked them  _ovet*_thojjgi!lfully_an  in the sack again, whereupon the boy  Paul burst into tears. Old Santa Claus,  shaking with silent laughter, replaced  them in the chair quickly.  As if to lighten the boy's heart he  opened a box and took out a mouth  organ. He held It so the light sparkled  on Its shiny side. Then he put his pipe  In his pocket and began to dance and  play lively music. Step and tune quickened'. The bulky figure was flying up  and down above a great clatter of big  boots, his bead wagging to keep time.  The oldest children "re laughing, and  the boy Paul began to smile, in the  midst of a great sob that shook him to  the toes. The player stopped suddenly,  stuffed the Instrument in a stocking  and went on with his work. Presently  he uncovered a stick of candy long as  a man's arm. There were spiral stripes,  of red from end to end of It. Ho used  lt for a fiddle bow, whistling with terrific energy, and awing the air. Then  ho put shawls id tippets and boots  nnd various 1<, packages on the other  chairs.  At last he drew out of tho sack a  sheet of pasteboard, wltli string attached, and hung It on tiie wall. It  boro tho simple message, rudely lettered la block, as follows:  Mary Crlsmus, And Chlldrdh I havo the  honnor to remane, Yours nespQo'fully  SANDY CLAUS.  His work done, ho swung his pack  to bis shoulders and made off as thoy  broke tbe silence wltb a hearty "Thank  you, Santa Claus!"  Thoy listened a moment as he went  away wltb a loud and merry laugh  sounding above the rour of tbe wind.  It was the voice of a big and gentle  heart, but gave no other clew, In a  moment cries of delight and a rustle of  wrappings filled tlio room. As on  wings of tho bitter wind, Joy and Rood  fortune had come to thorn and In that  Uttlo houso had drifted deep as tho  mow without  Tho children went to tholr bods with  slow foot and quick pulses.

She went below  stairs to the fire, which every cold day  was well fed until after midnight, and  began to enjoy the sight of her own  gifts. They were a haunch of venison,  a sack of flour, a shawl and mittens.  A small package had fallen to the floor.  It was neatly bound with wrappings of  blue paper. Under the last layer was a  little box, the words "For Polly" on its  cover. It held a locket of wrought  gold that outshone the light of the candles. She touched a spring, and the  case-opened���������Inside-was^ock-of"hW-  white ns her own. There were three  lines cut in the glowing' metal, and  she read tbem over and over again:  Here are silver and gold,  The one for a day of remembrance between thee and dishonor,  The other for a day of plenty between  thee and want.  She went to her bed presently, wher*>  the girl Jay sleeping, and, lifting dark  masses'of ber hair, kissed a ruddy  cheek, Then tbe willow stood a moment, wlpiug her eyes.  -Mus'h't beiTeve all ye hear," said  the widow, who now turned to the  doubting Thomas.  And that very moment Tom was  come to the last gate of childhood,,  whereon are the black and necessary  words, "Mus'n't, believe all ye bear."  The boys in theii hew boots were on  the track of a panther. They treed  him presently at the foot of the stairs.  "How'U we kill him?" one of them  inquired. >  "Just walk around the tree once,"  said the mother, "an' you'll scare him  to death. Why don't ye grease your  boots?"  "'Frald it'll take the screak out of  ���������em." said Paul, looking down thoughtfully at his own pair.  "Well," said she, "you'll have me  treed if you keep on. No hunter would  have boots like that A loud foot  makes a still gun."  That was her unfailing method of  control, the appeal to intelligence. Polly sat singing thoughtfully, the locket  in her hand. She had kissed the sacred  tiling and hung it by a ribbon to her  neck and bathed her eyes in the golden  light of it and begun to feel the subtle  pathos in its odd message. She was  thinking of the handsome boy who  came along that far May day with the  drove and who lately had returned to  be her teacher at Linley school. Now  he had so much dignity aud learning  she liked him not half so well and felt  he had no longer any care for her. She  blushed to think how she had wept  over his letter and kissed it every day  for weeks. Her dream was interrupted  presently by the call of her brother  Tom. Having cut the frost on a window pane, he stood peering out. A  man was approaching in the near field.  His figure showed to the boot top  mounting hills of snow and sank out  of sight in the deep hollows. It looked  as if he were walking on a rough sea.  In a moment he came striding over the  dooryard fence on a pair of snowshoes.  "It's Mr. Trove, the teacher," said  Polly, who quickly began to" shake her  curls-  (To Be Continued.)  THE TINY SCIARA.  THE HOUSE OF LORDS  A Procession of Worms Seen In Han.  Kary and Norway.  In some of the Hungarian forests  and in the pine woods of Norway there  exists a tiny, wormlike insect called  the sciara, of the genus tlpula. During the month of July or early in August they gather together in large  numbers, preparatory to migrating In  search of food or for change of condition. When setting out on this journey they stick themselves together by  means of some glutinous matter and  form a huge serpent-like mass, often  reaching a length of between forty and  fifty feet and several Inches in thickness. As the sciara is only on an av-'  erSge about three thirty-seconds of an  inch in length, with no appreciable  breadth whatever, the number required  to compose a continuous line of the  size above mentioned Is almost meal-  culable. Their pace is, of course, very  slow, and upon meeting an obstacle,  such as a stick or stone, they will  either writhe over or around it sometimes breaking into two bodies for this  purpose. \  M.   Guerin-Menevllle,   a  celebrated  French naturalist, said that if the rear  portion  of this  wonderful  snakelike  procession be brought into contact with j  the front part and a sort of circle'  formed the Insects will keep moving  round In that circle for-hours without i  apparently noticing that they are get-'  ting no "forrader" on their Journey. If  the procession be broken in two, the j  portions will reunite In a short time, j  The Norwegian peasants, when they j  meet one of these trains, will lay some  article of their clothing, such as a belt  or handkerchief, on the ground in front  of It.   If the procession passes,over lt  it Is regarded as a good sign, but If lt  makes a way round the reverse Is believed.  CHECKS  IT HAS   RECEIVED   AT  THE  HANDS OF THE COMMONS.  FAIR PLAY.

There is an appeal tu which nearly  -all-classes-ofHmen~give-heed���������let���������us-  have fair play. You may address a  schoolful of mischievous boys on the  beauties of goodness, on the evils of  cruelty or harshness to their fellows,  and they will laugh at you. Exhortations to avoid any abstract evil or  wrong and appeals to follow any abstract virtue will seem hazy to almost  any collection of ordinary, healthy and  lusty young boys, but if their sense-of  fair play be uddressed there Is a ready  response.  Go among a crowd of wharfingers or  longshoremen-or the roughest aud most  reckless sailors,' who bave uelther  home nor principles of any sort, and  talk to them of the things of the head  or of the beurt, and they will think  that you are a harmless but quite futile specimen from crankdom.

The Lour Parliament Put the Peers,  Out of BuBtnes* Altogether For a  Number of Year* ��������� BolinKbroke'a  Way With the Noble Lords.  There Is an idea In the minds of very  many persons tbat the British house of  lords Is supreme and can do pretty well  what it pleases. This, however, is a  mistake. On several.notable occasions  their noble lordships have been paralyzed and have got very much the  worst of it in stormy arguments with  the gentlemen of the house of commons.  The first occasion on which this happened was when the peers ventured to  differ with the long parliament, which  was at the time engaged in a life and  death struggle with Charles I. Tho  commons on this occasion wasted no  valuable time In talking, but promptly  abolished the lords altogether and  turned them, archbishops, dukes, belted earls and all the rest of the gorgeous coronoted crowd, Into the street  The gilded chamber was vacant.  For half a dozen years or so the  country got on without any house of  lords.  All the checks the house of lords  have received have not been of such a  drastic nature as this, of course.  Various ministries, finding that the  peers were unwilling to pass their proposed bills, have resorted to the threat  to create enough new peers to .swamp  tbe house of lords. These new peer*  would, of course, have been pledged  beforehand to vote for tbe ministry  creating tbem.  In 1711 the prime minister of the  day, the daring and unscrupulous Viscount Bollngbroke, was anxious to terminate the desolating and ruinous war  with France, which had been raging  on and off for twenty years.  To effect this purpose be had drawn  up the treaty of Utrecht It was necessary at that time that lords aud 'commons should agree to a treaty before  it would become valid.

The Liberal government of 1833, wltb  Earl Grey as prime, minister, used the  same threat. Tbey wished to pass tho  first reform bill. The lords hated this  bill bitterly.  Until then they had been practically  an oligarchy, with all the real power  In their bands. The franchise bad been  bo limited that only rich men, and generally only tbe nominee of some groat  nobleman, could get Into parliament.  The reform bill altered that. It gave  the smaller men a chance.

Mrs. L. Taylor, of Pine Ridge,  Man., says: "I will never be without Zam-Buk in the house, as I  have thoroughly proved it. It cured  irritating rash and eczema on my  baby's feet during teething. Where  there are children it is invaluable,  as it heals their sores and injuries  in wonderfully shori time.  Trodden on by Horse���������Bad Bruises.  Mr. D. Cumming, ot Springmount,  Ont., says: "I have proved that  Zam-Buk has extraordinary merit. I  was trampled on by a horse and my  foot was all black and swollen. I  could scarcely move it the pain was  so bad. A few applications of  Zam-Buk cured the pain and removed the discoloration. The foot was  soon all right again. It' is a wonderful balm."  Zam-Buk ia an- all-roundi household bvalm. It is compounded from-  purely,herbal essences and cures eczema, '' ulcers, sores, chapped hands,  bruises,' cuts, burns, etc. It also  cures rheumatism, sciatica, neuralgia, and rubbed well in over the  chest in cases of cold removes the  tightness and aching.

This amount they  think is only a part of what the burglary syndicate is supposed to have  taken. Another man, named Ishmael  Bourrette, has been arrested also.

The admiral prefaced his speech  with a characteristic reference to his  inspection. "It has particularly pleased me,'" he said, "to Bee that the  men looked me straight in the face.  Men should always look their officers in the eye, and stand up and  be proud of themselves." Lord Beresford then, in the name of Sir John  Pound, and the other donors, presented the gifts, which were displayed  upon the quarter-deck. They included: A silver challenge shield to be  engraved with the names of the best  gunners; a silk ensign; a ship's bell  with chased silver brackets; a silver  model of the Tower of London; two  silver fruit dishes; and a cheque for  ������260 4s Id to be used to provide gun-  'nery prizes __  Hla Gneas.

Mrs. Jobin says: "About  a year ago I was seized with indigestion which had an alarming effect  upon my health. Day by day my  strength grew less. I suffered from  terrible headaches, aizziness, palpitation of the heart and sleeplessness.  I was in this condition for about six  months. I consulted two doctors  and although I followed their treat*  ment carefully it did not help me in  the least. Last October, seeing that  instead of regaining my health I was  growing worse, I decided to try Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills. After I had  taken the second box there was a  change for'the better, and after taking the pills for a month longth the  trouble entirely-disappeared, and I  am again enjoying the beet, of  health. I have sr^muoh confidence in  Dr. Williams* Pink Pills that I always keep them in the house and  take them occasionally as a safeguard."  Just as surely ns Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills cured Mrs. Jobin's indigestion they can cure all the other  ailments which come from bad  blood. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actually make new, red blood.

On th������  second day of his confinement the jailei  brought him a letter, which,- as far as  the warder of the castle could discover,  was merely a note of condolence from  a friend. But the letter had been concocted on a cipher to which Sir John  had a clew. Every third letter after o  punctuation mark of any kind was te  tell. What he made out was this:  "Panel at east end of chapel slides."  On the following evening the prlsonei  begged permission to pass a quiet houi  In prayer In the chapel. The request  was granted, and before the hour had  passed the panel bad done its work  and the bird had flown.  A Bird Performer.
