East vs West.  Why are not the industries of  British Columbia controlled by  the people ot British Columbia,  or should they be? These are  two questions that should engage the attenfion of all people  of the province who have money  to invest,especially those who give  their money to others to handle.  In years gone by when we were  iu pur infancy as a province, and  our population few in number,we  were weak financially and had to  call in outside money iu order to  develope some of our resources  and demonstrate their great richness, and show that we have a  piece of country capable of supporting many times many thousand people. To-day, it can be  truthfully shown that the richness of our resources places British Columbia as carrying the  banner for the nine sister provinces. Then proving what we  have, why is our \noney not kept  in. British Colnmbia investments  instead of those of the east? It  certainly looks as though this  matter does not giye our people  much thought, for, as a rule,  B. C's. best things are first offered  to our own people, but in most  cases, as a final resort, the promoters have to call in the aid of  eastern capital; while investments  such as loan companies of eastern  provinces, wireless telegraphy,  -eot-ton-and-quartz-miuing-stocks-.  of the United States meet with  iavor. Out of our coal mines,  timber, saw mills, fisheries and  numereus other industries,eastern  capitalists have made millions;  while we in British Columbia  are putting millions each yeat  into such'.'easterr*'" ihvestmerity.-.a-i.  the easterners themselves., reject.  Wake upp. Lell^'fihd'^n^st  how we stand;-and' wfifetfrft'; good  investment presents itSeW- from  our own province, take advantage  of it; but by all meansb^cautious.  So far as possible the people of  the province should place their  money in provincial concerns; if  right at our own doorstep, so  much the better. You remember  the dollar that came back every  time until it was sent to an  eastern departmental store. By  favoring our own province, we  build up the country in which  we live, aud the*-promoters will  feel that they are trusted by their  own people, and the result will  be that the capital will be more  carefully handled.  Of late the people of Cumberland and district have been given  a chance to invest in some good,  some indifferent and some bad  propositions. A persou is safe  to invest in any good British  Columbia enterprise where the  amount to be invested does uot  cripple one's finauces. Beware  of the "lightning rod" style of  promoter. He has uo heart or  soul, and remember that the hills  around home are as green as those  far away.  There are a number of British  Columbia concerns paying good  dividends at present, and good  prospects for others.

CRIPPLED   BY   SCIATICA  ���������Made Well and Strong by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills After Doctors Had Failed  Mr. H. W. Await is one of the  leading merchants of Heniford, N.  S. A few years ago he was a great  sufferer from that most excruciating  trouble, sciatica. He says: "At  the time I was afflicted I was living  at Baker Settlement. The attack-  was so severe that I had been off  work for some time. The cords of  my leg were all drawn up and I  ���������could only limp with the nid of a  stick. 'The pain I suffered was terrible. I was in misery both day and  -night.

I had used about  __the_.j'iitkj^  any benefit. But I was encouraged  and got a second half dozen boxes,  nnd before these were all gone  -.every vestige of the trouble had disappeared. Not only this, but I was  improved i:i health in every way, as  it, will be readily understood that  -the long siege of pain I had suffered had left me badly run down.

The Imperial Government will be  thoroughly disillusioned if it expects  the Boers to display any anxiety in  the direction of sending the Chinamen home,  General Botha, the new Premier,  and his colleagues do not love the  Asiatics, but they are wise enough to  approve their stay in the country so  long as it is to the Boor interest.  The Boers are far more interested  in farming than in gold mining, but  tho success of one depends on the  other. If the Chinamen were sent  away, the domand of tho mines for  Kaffir labor would be so great that tho  Boer farms would be depleted of their  hands.  Tf tho Radical party knew how the  average colonial in that country regards them, thoy would understand  why people say they prefor Boor rule  to being loft to the erratic mercies of  Downing street under a Liboral dispensation.

Y  PLUMAGE FOR HATS  OU may trim your hat with crowned with black ostrich plnme.3  almost anything under the and had red velvet roses under ths  sun in the shape of feath- brim to rest upon the wearer's hair-  ers and still be in fashion, ������������������������������������  but if you want to be distinctly up  to date you will aim at long, sweeping effects. These may be-attained  with ostrich plumes, with osprey  plumes, with birds of paradise^ with  coque feathers, with aigrettes and  even with wings.  Never have ostrich feathers been  worn more than now. The bedraggled, uncurled plume that threatened  us a little earlier in the season is  waning in popularity. If you buy an  ostrich plume, now you will buy it  curled, and you will also choose it in  a plain color, as the shaded effects  are ceasing to please.  A long ostrich plume of good quality in black or white is a good investment for nny woman. Her hat  adorned with it this winter is sure  to be in good stvle, and these plumes  will admit of almost endless redye-  ing and curling. Beautiful plumes  come in all the standard colors-  brown, navy blue, green and gray.  There is a fascinating shade known  by the milliners as "taupe," which is  somewhere between a castor and ������n  gray, and harmonizes beautifully  with the London smoke gowns.  Coque plumes increase ih popularity as the season advances. They  are pretty, chic, durable and not'  overly expensive. They come in  every possible color���������sometimes in  a combination of colors. What ist-  known as the bronze or natural tint  is new this year and very much liked.  Quills still hold their own for tha  simple hats, and no wonder! Their*?  is a well-deserved popularity. The-  turkey contributes many a quill to  the milliner's store, and his contributions are dyed almost any color.  Breasts have an important place  in present-day millinery. Entire  toques are made of them, or the  toque has a velvet crown in a harmonizing color and the breasts are  built all around this. Pheasant  breasts are charming when used this-  way, and what woman does not know  the joy of possessing a chic little  feather toque?  Two new colors in hat plumage  that are finding great favor in feminine eyes are the Bordeaux, which  is a pretty shade of garnet, and an  exquisite pale blue, which is called  "ciel." An entire hat is sometimes  built of one of these colors, but with  the woman whose tastes arc conventional a black hat with a touch of  either meets with greater favor.  She who heeds not the pleading of  the Audubon Society will have a  whole bird upon her, hat. One,woman has been reported as wearing a  small rooster there, but it is safe to-  surmise that she will not have many  followers.  Gueria is a new aigrette feather  that is among the season's showings.  It has soft needle-iike vanes ending:  in a close feather tip, is frequently  seen in black and can be spangled  with crystal drops.  7e &?*&# up c? co/</  WrTH a whole host of ready,  made preparations awaiting  us In Nature's laboratory of  the garden and orchard, most  of us would be better oft If we tried  gome of those remedies before rushing  off to experiment wHh drugs.  If half the people who turn to calomel  and like drugs every little while would  eat freely of raw tomatoes, or, If they  have tendencies to gout and rheumatism and find tomatoes aggravate lt, to  the  chronic  constipation  apples and figs,  most of  cases of Indigestion   and  would be cured.  Figs���������green or dried or pulled���������are a  particularly good medicine, as are dates,  and apples are said to furnish food for  brain and nerves in addition to their  laxative qualities.  Por nervous people, and the majority  of people with poor digestion, nothing  is so. good as plenty of lettuce and celery.   Spinach Is another vegetable with  medicinal qualities, and carrots are  good blood-makers. As for onions, they  are a sort of tonic, eaten raw. boiled,  baked���������any way but fried, which is apt  to make them indigestible.  When fresh fruits seem too much of  a tax upon the digestive organs, the  stewed ones may be substituted, but the  amount of sugar used should be as little  as possible���������only enough to overcome  the aeidWy of the fruit.  Whenever pimples make their appear-  ���������-ance~upon-the-face-ortodyriris"usually���������  a sign that" the blood needs cooling.  Reducing your diet to vegetables and  fruit for a few days, eating plenty of  the green vegetables and of tomatoes,  should accomplish the result wtthout  resource to other "medicines."  Peaches  and  pears    and    plums   all  * serve their purpose as medicines, most  of them  mildly  laxative;  all  of them  splendid appetizers.  Grapefruit is as good a tonic, so say  its followers, as quinine, without any  of the ill effects following its use as  are too apt to follow the taking of quinine.  Orange juice Js nourishing���������it is said  that one could live upon a diet of Ave  or six oranges a day, and live In good  health and spirits.  Lemon juice, squeezed into hot water,  is gopd to take when you have caught  a severe cold,  Sugar may be added to make lt more  palatable if desired, although, as the  stomach is always more or less upset  at the time, the sugar Is a little better,  omitted.  Iridescent breasts, wings and  bird heads are very much liked for  many hats. Indeed, this seems to be  a season when the sombre in millinery finds little place. Flowers, especially roses, are combined constantly yith' feathers. One very  <(tunmng' black   velvet    hat    was  All-black hats draped in black ostrich plumes are much liked. All-  white hats will never lose their popularity with some women for special  occasions, and the combination of s*  black hat with white wings, flaring  high at one side/will meet with the  approval of her who likes that touch  of black and whiter  > -T-R-A-N-S-FOR-M-I-NG-FA-N-S-  "W  HAT a unique fan that Is," remarked Mary to   Ethel,   as  they descended the steps of  the ballroom.  "That? Why, my dear, that fan cost  me just 25 cents. It was a very ordinary design of large flowers in white  and silver. The flowers, which had no  definite shape, I painted bright red, also  painting the sticks of the fan to match  them. Painting the sticks Is my little  trick, for it gives the fan an odd and  pretty appearance.  "I havo them to match every one or my  evening gowns, in all varieties and  shades. Once, I remember, a hotel here  gave out fans as souvenirs on a special  occasion.. Mine was a dear, and the  only'advertisement on it was the hotel's  name in light purple ink on the outside  stick,   There were no flowers In the de  sign, but there were Insertions of lace>  which I painted violet. The sticks ������  painted so deep a purple that the ink-  did not show, ana* a violet ribbon to  match the color of the. lace gave the*  finishing touch. Even when I get a good,  fan I give it some distinguishing touch-  to add to its unique appearance."  "Oh, well, it is because you^aint that  you can do all that," pouted Mary. '  "No, not entirely. In the case of tho*  violet fan, for instance, it heeded notability to stain the lace and stick. Very;  often you can find a fan of that sort-  But of all the fans I transform I like  best the black ones, on which I paint a.  long wreath of forget-me-nots or wild  roses.   They are really stunning,"  "Well, I'm going to begin renovating;  fans tomorrow," said Edith. "How  would this look In that fascinating new  pink?"  VARIOUS TIME AND MONEY'SAVING HINTS-  Finishing a Waist  O BE properly finished a waist  ghould be something moro than  neat 1 n s 1 d e���������It  ���������should be pretty,  and, with a Uttlo  extra trouble, may  bo given a touch  of elegance,  "I always like to  look at the inside  of your waists,"  said one amateur  dressmaker to another, "thoy are so  pretty, Indeed, they are as handsome  Inside as they are outside,"  Tho comment was Justified. Every  little dainty detail was attended to,  The hooks and eyes were applied with  perfect stralghtnoss, the sonms were  bound with binding silk In black, whlto  or contrasting color, the bones were  herring-boned In with henvy silk or  sllkolJne In the same way, Oonorally,  though, tho bonos in a black waist, if  not applied with white, wero put In  with yellow, crimson or light green,  Tho effect was charming,  Both for good fit and elcganct* the  seams should be cut beforo thoy nre  bound, To insure uniformity of aides  they should be put together nnd nicks  should be taken out at uniform distance.

To rymj  yearns  seam. If binding will moke sleeve seam  too thick, close buttonholing with heavy  silk or sllkollnn In contrasting color  will look na well nnd nerve the purpose.  The bottom of a waist may be merely  nicked with the aeliMinrs. - Many of the  uc-.i Uiihtiuuktib liuUli ilivm uil in this  The Growing Baby  MOTHERS are often In despair In  relation to tho way baby outgrows his clo'hos, The growth,  of course, In as it should be; nevertheless just how to have him look as  If his clotlu'S wore made for him, and  then alter thorn In a little while without having them 1,-iok "patchy," Is  sometimes a puzzle. Skirts aro easily  disposed of by lotting down a tuck  ot facing a hem, but waists are the  problem,  ThU problotn, howovor, la to bo  solved before It occurs rather than  afterward, In a rapidly growing child,  unless we can nff-rd to diroard tho  garments as soon as they become too  snug a fit, tho clothe* nhould bo out  a slso or two too large nnd the surplus should be disposed of without  showing, lf tho wnlBt has a belt r������t  in, the material of the waist should  bo carried down under tho belt, and  a further addition may be made by  taking a tuck so close to tho top of  the belt, thnt it will never bo noticed,  This can bo let out at nnv moment for  length, and should be* put In by oloio  'i.i.vl  i u...,;���������(,,   J>u   lual   ll   Ilia*,    UU   11)0  -moro ennUy removed.

If not made this way,  the addition of somo half-worn Insertion will remedy the trouble.  Sleeves can be dealt with In the following way: Make the wristbands  at least an inch to an Inch and a half  too largo, and the sleeves rather full.  When needed, a little ripping will  correct the trouble. The length should  bo added at the top. at least ono and  one-half inches, The rlceves should  be put In so that this extra length  will fall into the  gathers, where it  w J 11 never be noticed.

WEDNESDAY,   JULY  17, 1907  It strikes one very forcibly  now that the McBribe government can boast of a millon dollars surplus that friends should  not be forgotten. Now a surplus in the provincial treasury  may mean that amount left over  after all- debts are paid, if so then  the province* bas one million  dollars to spend, and we think  friends should have the benefit  of the distribution ot tlfe money  for why should it *ie in the bank  at only 3 per ceut interest when  by using it to good advantage it  could be made to bring at least  one hundred fold that amount  of comfort and pleasure.  The News would suggest that  the million dollars should be  spent this Summer for the bene-,  fit of the beople of B. C, and if  any partiality is shown, in those  districts which returned Conservative candidates at the last  election.  Now Comox sent a supporter  of Mr. McBride's to Victoria, and  Comox valley and Union Bay  part of the district gave Mr.  Grant a handsome majority. To_  compensate these people it would  be an excellent plan to spend  some of the million in the district in addition to the amount  granted last session.

THROVE bad much to help him���������  youth, a cheerful temperament,  ������������������ a counselor of unfailing -wisdom. Long after they were  gone he recalled the sadness and worry  of those days with satisfaction, for  thereafter the shock of trouble was  never able to surprise and overthrow  him.  After due examination he bad been  kept in ball to await the action of the  grand jury, soon to meet. Now, there  were none thought fclm guilty save one  or two afflicted with the evil tongue.  It seemed to him ��������� a dead issue and  gave him" no worry. One thing, how-  ever.preyed upon, his peace���������tbe knowledge that bis father was a thief. A  conviction was ever boring in upon him  that he had no right to love Polly. A  base injustice it.would be, he thought,  to marry her without telling what he  had no right to tell. But he was ever  hoping for some word of his father-  news that might set him,free. He had  planned to visit Tolly, and on a certain day Darrel was to meet him at  Robin's Inn. The young man waited  in some doubt of his duty, and that  day came, one of the late summer,  , when he and Darrel went afoot to the  Inn, crossing hill and valley as the  crow flies, stopping here and there at  isles of shadow in a hot amber sea of  light. They sat long to hear the droning in the stubble and let their thought  drift slowly as the ship becalmed.  "Some days," said Darrel, "the sou]  in me is like a toy skiff, tossing in the  ripples of a duck pond an' mayhap  _stmading_on,Ju*&edj^^  he added, with kindling eye and voice,  "she is a great ship, her sails league  long an' high, her masthead raking the  ���������stars, her hull in the infinite sea."  ."Well," said Trove, sighing, "I'm  ���������still in the ripples of the duck pond."  "An' see they do not swamp thee,"  said Darrel, with a smile that seemed  to say, "Poor weakling, your trouble  is only as the ripples of a tiny pool."  They went on slowly, over green pastures, baiting at a brook in the woods.  There again they rested in a cool  Bhade of pines, Barrel lighting his pipe.  "I envy thee, boy," said the tinker,  "entering on thy life work in this great  land���������a country blest o' God. To thee  all high things are possible. Where I  was born, let a poor lad bave great  hope in him, an' all���������aye, all���������even  those he loved, rose up to cry him  down. Here in this land all cheer an'  bid him godspeed. An* here is to be the  great theater o' tbe world's action.  Many of high hope in the broad earth  Bhall come, an' here they shall do their  work. An' its spirit shall spread like  the rising waters, aye, it shall flood the  world, boy, Jt shall flood the world."    '  Trove made no reply, but he thought  much and deeply of what the tinker  said. Tbey lay back awhile on tba  needle carpet, thinking. Tbey could  hear tho murmur of tne brook nnd a,  woodpecker drumming on a dead tree.  "Me bead is busy as yon woodpeck*'  er's," Darrel went on, "It's the soul  flro In this great, free garden o' God���������  it's America. Have yo felt it, boy?"  "Yes; it is in your eyes and on your  tongue," said Trove.  "Ah, boy, 'tis only God's oxygen.

"For three days I've been  dressed up waiting."  "An* a grand dress it is," said Dar-  rei, surveying her pretty figure.  "I've nearly worn it out waiting,"  said she, looking down, her voice trembling.  "Tut, tut, girl-'tis a lovely dress,**  the tinker insisted.  "It is oue my mother wore when she  was a girl," said Polly proudly. "It  was made over."  "0-oh, God love thee, child!" said the  tinker in a tone of great admiration.  "'Tis  beautiful."  "And you came through tbe woods?"  said Polly.  "Through wood and field," was  Trove's answer.  "I wonder you knew the way."  "The little god o' love, he shot his  arrows, an' we followed them as the  hunter follows the bee," said Darrel.  "lt wa3 nice of you to bring the  flowers," said Polly. "They are beautiful."  "But not like those in thy cheeks,  dear child. Where is the good mother?" said Darrel.  "She and tbe������boys are gone a-berry-  ing, and I bave been making jelly.

"But, child,  honor is not for them that tinker  clocks."  " 'Honor and fame from no condition  rise,'" said Polly, who sat In a chair  knitting.  "True, dear girl. Tby lips are sweeter than the poet's thought."  "You'll turn my head." Tbe girl was  laughing as sbe spoke.  "An it turn to me, I shall be happy,"  said tbe tinker, smiling, and then he  began to feel tbe buttons on bis waist*  coat. ."Loves me, lovos mo not, loves  me, loves me not"���������  "She loves you," said Polly, wltb a  smile.  "Sbe loves me-hear that, boy!" said  the tinker. "Ab, were sbo not bespoke!  Well, God be praised, I'm bappy," be  added, filling bis pipe.  "And seventy," said Polly.  "Aye, threescore an' ten-small an'  close together, now, as I look off at  them, like a flock o' pigeons in the  sky."  "What do you think?" said Polly as  she dropped her knitting. "The two  old maids are coming tonight."  "Tbo two old maids," said Darrel.  "'Tin a sign an' a wonder."  "Ob, a' great chnnge has come over  them," Polly weut on, "It's all tbo  work o' the teacher.

"You'd better fix the clock," said  Polly, smiling.   "It is too fast now."  "So is the beat o' thy heart," Darrel  answered, a merry look in his eyes,  "an' the clock is keeping pace."  Trove got up, with a laugh, and  went away, the boys following.  "I'm worried about him," tbe widow  whispered. "For a long time he hasn't  been himself."  "It's the trouble, poor lad! 'Twill  6oon be over," said Darrel hopefully.  There were now tears in the eyes ot  Polly.  "I do not think he loves me any  more," said she, her lips trembling.  "Speak not eo, dear child. Indeed he  loves thee."  "I have done everything to please  him," said Polly in broken words, her  face covered with her handkerchief.  "I wondered what was the matter  with you, Polly," said her mother tenderly.  "Dear, dear child!" said the tinker,  rising and patting her head. "The  chaplet on thy brow an' thee weeping, fairest flower of all!"  "I have wished that I was dead!"  The words came in a little moan between sobs.  "Because love hath led thee to the  great river o* tears? Nay, child.- 'tis a!  winding river an' crosses all the roads."  He had taken her handkerchief and  with a tender touch dried her eyes.  "Now I can see thee smiling, an' tby  lashes, child���������they are like the spray o*  the fern tip when the dew is on it." ,  Polly rose and went away into the  house. Darrel wiped his eyes, and the  widow sat, her chin upon her hand,  looking down sadly and thoughtfully.  Darrel was first to speak.  "Did it ever occur to ye, Martha  Vaughn, this child o' thine is near a  woman, but has seen nothing o' the  world?"  "I think of that often," said she, the  mother's feeling ih her voice.  "Well, if I understand him, it's a  point of honor with the boy not to  ���������pledge-her-to-marriage-until-she-has-  seen more o' life an' made sure of her  own heart. Now, consider this: Let  her go to the school at Hillsborough,  an'I'll pay the cost."  The widow looked up at him without  speaking.  "I'm an old man near the end o' the  journey, an' ye've known me many  years," Darrel went on. "There's nothing can be said against it. Nay; I'll  have no thanks. Would ye,thank the  money itself, the bits o* paper? No;  nor Roderick Darrel, who in this business is no more worthy o' gratitude.  Hush!  Who comes?"  It was Polly herself in a short red  skirt, ber arras bare to the elbows. She  began to busy herself about the house.  "Too bad you took off that pretty  dress, Polly," said Trove when he returned.  She came near and whispered to bim.  "This," said she, looking down sadly, "Is like the one I wore when you  first came."  "Well, first I thought of your arms,"  said he. "They wero so lovely) Then  of your eyes and face and gown, but  now I think only of tbe one thing-  Polly,"  The girl was happy now and went  on with the work, singing, while Trove  lent a baud.

Thomson, in The Boston  Transcript, is amused at a few things  he sees in Canada. He writes:  As a field of subjects for comic  opera Canada merits attention.  Around the governor-generalship some  funny "shows" of amiable noblemen,  all happy in the possession of charming, good-natured wives and daughters,  condemned, for about four years each,  to pose as shades of royalty in a country of the most democratic, their performance being gravely condemned  on no other ground than as furnishing a sort of school of deportment for  the worthy commonalty whom it  doesn't affect, in any degree. Conceive a man of the essential'seriousness, the ability, tact and diplomatic  skill of Lord Grey, taking the chief  role in that farce. He called the executive !

IHE EXPIATORY DEAD.  Inexplicable  Fate o? the  Enemies  of  Dreyfue Revision.  "Always the dead!" Reinach cried  bitterly. "Whenever we find a forgery, a crime, always it Is set to the  account of a dead man!"  And he drew up a list, horrible In its-  eloquence, of the dead who strewed  the dark path of this monstrous case  of crime and cruelty and infamy. Yet  there had fallen so many of the enemies of truth and justice that he might  have called them the expiatory dead.

Now^ the deputy took  train one day to visit his home. An*  hour later he was "found dead" on the  railway tracks between two stations.  And Rocher of the prison guards, who-  also claimed to have beard Dreyfus  say, "I am guilty, but I am not the  only one!" died, and to this day no one-  knows where or how.

It  closes and heals cuts, festering sores,  ulcers, eruptions, boils, eczema,  chafing sores, etc. In the household it is the handiest possible remedy for burns, scalds, children's injuries. It instantly cleanses any  wound to which it is applied; prevents festering, inflammation or  blood poisoning. It cures piles,  varicose ulcers and. fistula.

A Friday adventure with his 13th  lion was, the superstitious will note,  one of the most exciting incidents in  Major Powell-Cotton's novel honeymoon.  The famous explorer haa just returned after 27 months of travel in  Africa. Ih 1905 he intended to return  to England to be married, but hesitated about breaking his journey, and  so his fiancee went out to East Africa,  where the wedding took place. Since  then they have explored together the  land of the pigmies of the Ituri Forest  It was in October last, while on the  bank ot the Saasa river, near Lake  Albert Edward, that Major Powell-  Cotton had his most exciting adventure. A lion which he had wounded  sprang on him, digging its claws in  the major's back and legs.  It tore its victim's coat to shreds,  and then attempted to tear open the  abdomen, but owing to a folded copy  of Punch which Major Powell-Cotton  had in his pocket, the brute's claws  were unable to penetrate to the flesh.  Finally an Askari shot the lion dead.  It was then found that Major  Powell-Cotton had received 17  wounds. He, however, rode to the  nearest Belgian camp, where he was  nursed back to health by Commandant Bastien.  This incident happened on a Friday, and it was the explorer's 13tb  lion.  Among the Pigmies.  . Speaking of his ��������� experiences with  the pigmies, Major Powell-Cotton  says:���������  "The excitement of these little people when they first saw my wife was  extraordinary, for they had, of course,  never previously beheld a white  woman. Perhaps the chief source of  wonder was her long hair, which, for  the special benefit of the dwarfs, she  would let down, while they crowded  round our tent in speechless wonder.  "Occasionally when sway I would  leave my wife alone. She had learned  a little of their language, and did  excellent medical work among them.  In my absence she took charge of the  caravan, and was always treated with  the greatest respect by the people."  On the conclusion of the work in  the forest the expedition proceeded  to Lake Albert Edward, where the  explorer visited a tribe of lake  dwellers, who spfind their whole lives  7m,~i;heTT\',aterr~Their���������h'ouseB~are~all"  'built on florin? platforms, anchored  to long poles. The main floating village consists of 30 huts, while two  others comprise 10 and seven respectively.  "Some of these grass huts," says  Major Cotton, "were built round a  small'sauare .platform about 25 feet  by 10. This forms the common back  yard and practically the world of the  children. The people were healthy,  well fed, and good-looking. They  rarely marry outside their own community, for they say a land woman  wouhl be useless and unhappy if  compelled to live on their lake villages."

I had kidney trouble,  and, in fact, felt badly nearly all  the time  "This summer I got so very bad 1  thought I would try Peruna, so I  wrote to you and began at once to  take Peruna and Manalin.  "I took only two bottles of Peruna  and one of Manalin, and now I feel  better than I have for some time.  "I feel that Peruna and Manalin  cured me and made a different woman of me altogether.

An Accommodating  Peg  One of the disadvantages of modern shoemaking is that the peg  won't fit itself into the hole, Time  was, according to Mayor E. F.  Brown of Marlboro, when it was  much  more  accommodating.  "One day," he recently informed  the Boot and Shoe club, "my father,  a pioneer in the business, hit the  peg and it flew up. Whnt happened? Probably you won't believe  me, but it's a fad all the same. The  peg hit the ceiling, came down exactly into the hole, and was driven  in! But, you know," added Mayor  Brown, with a smile, "we don't peg  shoes that way nowadays."���������Boston  Herald.

These Tablets cure  such ailments as colic, indigestion,  constipation, diarrhoea and simple  fevers. They break up colds, destroy worms, make teething painless and give the child healthy, natural sleep. And the mother has the  guarantee of a government analyst  that the Tablets are absolutely safe.

Minard's Liniment Used by Physicians  A Washington man, wishing to  take his family into the country for  the summer, one day crossed over  to the Virginia side of the Potomac  to look at a small farm with a view-  to renting it.  Everything was to his liking, and  negotiations were about to be completed, when the question of hiring  also the farmer's cow came up. It  was an excellent cow, tho farmer  declared, and even after feeding her  calf she would give six quarts of  milk a day.  "Six quarts a day!" exclaimed the  Washington man. "That is more  than my whole family could use.'  Then, suddenly observing the calf  following its mother about the pasture, he added:  "I'll tell you what I'll do! I'll  hire the small cow. She's just  about our size."���������Harper's Weekly.  f$?\������;-/y-Thia cold-water starch  $S$&!/gete- ironing-day over  &1������;-;-������/quicker, with less wear on  WOrjtoe ironer's muscles and far  Mffl*ess on t}ie sterc-������ec* Pieces.  ra*/Gives a beautiful gloss.  gj/Needn't be boiled, .yet sannot  g/stick.

S.^\  UNBREAKABLE FIRE-POT  The lower portion of a fire-pot is usually nearly  or partly -filled with dead ashes, leaving the live,  red-hot coal's in the upper part. The result is that  the upper portion expands much more than the  lower. . .   '     * ... .���������  This uneven expansion causes a strain  too great for a one-piece tire-pot to st.incl.  Sooner or later it will split, allowing preqious  heat   ami    sickening   yasee   to  escape.  But the fire-pot cf the Sunshine  is constructed to meet this ������on-  dition. It is in two sections. The  ���������upper half expands, as much as  necessary, independently of the  lower. When cool, it contracts "  hack to its original size, fitting  to the lower half perfectly.
