Dillon was summoned by  the city for not paying his convey  ancing licence, on July 19th. He  objected to do so for specified  reasons���������others in city doing the  same line of business aud paying  110 licence. After argument 011  certain technicalities by Mr. P.P.  Harrison, counsel for defendant  the .case was dismissed.  On August 2nd,   Cap was a-  gain  summoned,  this  time' for  practising as a barrister.'without  licence, - After  short argument  regarding merits of the case the  same was>djourned, in order to  secure the mayor as a witness fov  the prosecution, Mr P. P. Harrison again appearing for defenaut,  Thie city in 'the meantime evidently came to the conclusion'that  they did not have; strong enough  evidence, so the city clerk having  ascertained that Cap had two cli  ents in his. office, determined to  see what was doiug, so he open-,  ed the door, without, the usual  polite proceeding- of knocking, a  la Sherlock, Holmes, and in as  stern a voice as.he could muster  demanded of the clients if Cap  were doing any work for them.  Cap thereupon instructed them  notto~reply ahd-looking-over-his-  glasses in that magisterial manner of his, which-has. struck terror into the hearts of thousands  of prisoners, he sternly, ordered  the would-be detective out of the  office;. who thereupon, ^deeniiug^  discretion the better part of valor, beat a hasty retreat, ~  , The matter of a licence was  finally settled out of court.  Good Returns.  When Prof Saunders visited  Vancouver Island in the search  for site for au experimental farm  he carried with him the impression and gave it in an interview  to the Vancouver Province that  those owning laud on the Island  were asking too much per acre,  The News has it that one fanner in Comox valley this year sold  $55. worth of potatoes from one-  fifth of au acre, and found a  ready market close at hand, Ho  ���������has a large ranc!; with, uo hired  hejp, consequently could not devote much extra time to the cultivation of that one-fifth, of au  acre,  If Prpf.

The thirteen representatives of  the British Press when- they return to the motherland should be  able to educate the people there  as to advantages of Canada for  those who want to better their  condition. They aie seeing Canada and no doubt will go -home  convinced "that Canada is tne  strong right arm of the Empire  and that it should be made stronger by the infusion of more British blood."  Mr. J. R. Fisher of Belfast was  one of the visiting journalists.  The Victoria Times says that he  is particularly interested m Canada as a home for Irish people.  He finds his countrymen doing  well. Even Vancouver Island he  found was large anough to receive  all the Irishmen they could spare  and yet have plenty of room for  a few Scotchmen.  Howard Gray says, "One of  the best evidences of prosperity I  have found in this country is the  fact that uo sum of money smaller than five cents is used in your  currency. In the East End of  London, where people are very  poor, they use farthings to a very  large extent, often buying  a-farthingis-wOrth-fOf���������tea.���������In  Belguim, too, they use a coin's  worth, one-tenth of a penny,  This is always a sign of poverb*.''

He  needed money also for clothr  Ing and boots and an enterprise all had  been discussing.  "I'll give you $300 for the mare,"  said Allen.  Trove sat in thoughtful silence, and  presently Allen went out of doors.  The woman got her savings and  brought then* to her son. *���������  "There is $23, an' it may help you,"  Bhe whispered.  "No, mother, I can't take it;" said the  young man. "I-owe you more now than  I can ever pay. I shall have to sell the  mare. It's a great trial to me, but���������  but honor is better than horses."  "Wen, I've a surprise for you," said  she, bringing a roll of cloth from the  bedroom. "Those two old maids spun  the wool, and I wove it, and, see, it's  all been fulled."    (  "You're as good as gold, mother, and  so are they. It's grand to wear- in the  country, but I'm going away and ought  to have an extra good suit. I'd like to  look as fine as any of tbe village boys,,  and they don't wear homespun. But  I'll have plenty of. use for it"   v  Next day be walked to Jericho Mills  and paid the doctor. He went on to  Milldam, buying there a handsome new  outfit of clothing. Then be called to  see the president of the bank���������that one  which had set the dogs of tbe law on  him. v ���������;,-������������������������������������  "You know I put $3,000 in the bank*  of Hillsborough," said Trove when he-  sat facing the official. "I took the  -money���������mere,-belieyiag-it-to-be-minei-  If, however, it is yours, I wish to turn  it over to you." -'."'���������  "It is not our money," said the president "That bundle was sent here, and  we investigated .every bill���������a great  task, for there were some 300 of them.  Many are old bills and two the issue  . of banks gone out of business. It's all  a very curious problem. They would  not have received this money, but they  knew of tbe robbery and suspected you  at once. Now we believe absolutely in  your honor."  "I shall put tbat beyond all que***  tion," said Trove, rising.  He took the cars to Hillsborough.  There he went to the Sign of the Dial  and built a Are In its old stove. Tha  clocks were now hushed. He found  those Darrel had written of and delivered thero. Returning, he began to  wind tbo cherished clocks of the tinker  ���������old ones be had gathered here and  there in his wandering���������and to tutirt  "their pendulums. One of them, a tall  clock in the corner wltb a calendar  dial, had this, legend on tbe Inner aide  of its door:  Halted in memory of a good man,  lu hands pointing to the moment of his  death,  Its voka hushed in his honor.  Trove abut the door of tbe old clock  and hurried to the public attorney'!  office, where he got tbe address of Lo*  blanc. He met many who shook bis  band warmly and gave blm a pleasant  word. He wai In great fear of 'meeting Polly ond thought of what be  should do and say if ho camo face to  face with ber. Among others bt met  the echo������) principal.  "Coming back to work?" the latter  Inquired.  "No, itr, rr#4rot to earn money,**  "We need another teacher, and nt  recommend you,"  ,'Tm much obliged, but I couldn't  come before the fall term," laid Trove.  "I'll try to keep tbe place for you,"  ���������aid bii friend ������������������ tbey parted.  Trove come slowly down the street,  thinking bow happy be could be now if  Darrel were free and Tolly bad only  trusted him. Near the Sign of tbe  Dial be met Thurston Tilly.  "Back again?' Trove inquired.  "Back again. Boss gi'n up farminV*  ���������nd h*> m"*fe������* hia fortr'no*."  ���������"No*, he had on** *r>v������������ to Mm."  "Come nnd tell mo about It"  Tilly followed Trove up tbe old stair*  way Into tbe little shop.  "Beg yer pard������**n," said Tburst, turn*  luii "ztxycu ar*iWr  "No," said Trove, smiling.  "A man shot mo once when I wan't  doln' nothln' bat tryln' V toll a story,  an' I don't take no chance*.

'An' yoo're So-an'-  to," says tha t*vs.  I doo't eeeseflr re.  nfenTber tUe name he give.""Tilly stopped to think.  "Can you describe him?" Trove inquired.  "He was a big man, with white-  whiskers an' hair, an' be, wore light  breeches' an' a short, blue coat."  "Again the friend of Darrel," Trove  thought.  "Did you tell tbe tinker about your  boss the night we were all at Robin's  Inn last summer?"  "I told him tbe whole story, an' be  pumped me dry. I'd answer him an'  he'd holler 'Very well,' an' shoot another question at me."  "Well, Thurst, go on with your  story."  "Couldn't tell ye just what happened. Tbey went off ImV the house. Nex'  day the boss tol' me he wa'n't no longer  a poor man an' was goin' t' sell his farm  an' leave for Californy. In a tavern  near where we lived the stranger died  sudden that night, an' the funeral was  at our house, an' he'was!buried there  in Iowy." '  Trove walked to the bench and stood  a moment looking out of the window.  "Strange!" said he, returning presently, with tearful eyes. "Do you remember tbe date?"  " 'Twas a Friday, 'bout the middle o'  September."  Trove turned, looking up at the  brazen dial of the tall clock. It indicated 4-30 in the' morning of Sept. 19.  "Were there any with him when he  died?"  ��������� t.yf.v*'  The tfljl clot* indicated 4:80.  ���������TeB; tbe tavern keeper; lt was soon*  kind of a stroke, tbey told me."  "Aad your boss-did be go to California?" Trove asked.  "He sold tbe farm an' went to Call-  foray. I worked there awhile, but tbe  boss an' me couldn't agree, an' so I  pulled up an' trotted fer borne."  "To what part of California did  Thompson gar  "Hadn't no idoo where be would stick  bis stakes. Ho was goin' Int' tbe gold,  business."  Trove sat busy wltb bis own thoughts  while Thurston Tilly, warming to new  confidence, boiled over wltb enthusiasm  for tbe far west. A school friend of tbe  boy came by and by, whereupon Tilly  whistled and burrled away.  "Did you know," said tbe newcomer  when Trovo and he were alone, "that  Roberts, the man wbo tried to send you  up, is a young lawyer and ia golug to  settle here? Ho and Polly are engaged."  "Engaged!"  "So be gave ma ta understand."  "Well, If sbe loves Jlth and be'a a  good fellow, I've no rifht to complain."  "I don't believe thai he's a good fellow," sai'-rf be other,  "Why do you say tbatr  "Well, a detective ls-ls"-  "A necessary evil?" Trove suggested.  "Jut*. Ihui," tiiwd iLc wUjvI.  "tin utuai  pretend to be what be Is-n't, and well,  a gentleman Is not apt to soil himself  for tbat purpose. Now, be'a trying to  convince people tbat you knew as  much about the crime as Darrel,   In*  iu> upiuiuu lili ������������u*. uouvou   Gwju tvvki  and flno raiment ore nil thero is to tbat  fellow, take ray word for It"  "You're inclined to Judge blm harshly," said Trove. "But I'm worried, for  I fear lie's uuworthy of ber, and-and  I mint leave town tomorrow."  "8ball you go to see Jerr   .  "No; n<i>t until ! know more abotrt  blm.

I kaow which wajr ta turn."  CHAPTER XXX.  NEXT morning Trove was on  his way to Quebec ��������� a long,  hard journey in the winter  time those days. Leblanc had  moved again, go they told him in Quebec; this time to Plattsburg, in Clinton county, N. Y. There, however,  Trove was unable to find the Frenchman. A week of patient inquiry; then  leaving promises of reward for information, he came away. He had yet another object of his travels���������the prison  at Dannemora���������and came there of a  Sunday morning late in February. Its  towers were bathed in sunlight; its  shadow lay dark upon the snow. He  shivered in the gloom of this shadow  as he went up a driveway and rang a  bell. The warden received him kindly.  "I wish to see Roderick Darrel���������he is  my friend," said Trove as he gave the  warden a letter.  "Come with me," said the official  presently. "He is talking to the men."  They, passed . through gloomy corridors to the chapel,door. Trove halted  to compose himself,- for now he could  bear the voice of Darrel.  "Let me stand here awhile; I cannot go in now," he whispered.  The voice stopped. There was a moment of deep silence. Then a stir in  the audience���������a stir of hands and handkerchiefs. Trove entered; the chaplain  was now reading a hymn. Darrel sat  behind him on a raised platform, the  silken spray upon his brows, long and  white as snow, his face thoughtful and  serious. The reading over, be came  and sat among the men, singing as  tbey sang. The benediction, a stir of  feet, and the prfcsoners began to press  about bim, some kissing bis bands. He  gave each, a kindly greetiot. It was  like the night of the party on Cedar  hill. A moment more, and tbe crowd  was filing away, some looking back  curiously at Trove, who stood, his arms  about the old man.  "Courage, boy!'' the latter was saying. "I know ifceuts thee like & sword,  an' would to God I could have spared  thee even this. Look! In yon high  window I can see the sunlight an', believe me, there is not a creature it  shines upon so happy as I. God love  thee, boy; God Save thee!"  He put his cheek upon that of the  boy and'stroked his hair gently.   Then  la j jjaie_JLme_; of silence, jaad _the_ storm,  had passed. ,  o "A fine, fine lad ye are," said Darrel, looking proudly at the young man,  who stood now quite composed. "Let  me take thy hand. Aye, 'tla a m'lghty  arm ye bave, an' some day, some day,  it will shake the towers."  '. "You will both dine, with me in my  quarters at 1," said the warden.  Trove turned with a look of surprise.  "Thank ye, sor. An' mind ye make  room for Wit an' Happiness," said tbe  tinker.  "Bring them along���������they're always  welcome at my table," the warden answered, with a laugh.  "Know ye not they're In prison now  for keeping bad company?" said Darrel as be turned. "At 1, boy," he added, shaking the boy's hand. "Ah, then,  good cheer an' many a aserry jest"  Darrel left tbe room, waving his  hand. Trove and tbe warden made  their way to tbe prison oflke.  "A wonderful man!" said the latter  as they went "We love and respect  bim and give him all the liberty we  can. For a long time be bas been nursing in tbe hospital, and when I see  that bo is overworking I bring blm to  my office and set him at easy jobs."  Darrel came presently, and they went  to.dlnner. Tbe tinker bowed politely to  tbe warden's wife and led ber to tbe  table.  "Good friends," said be aa they were  sitting down, "there Is an bout1 tbat is  abort o* minutes ah' yet holds a week  ������* pleasure. Who can tell me wblcb  hour lt Is?"  "I never gneaaal a riiile." said tbe  woman,  "Marry, dear madam, 'tis tba hour  o' thy hospitality," aald tbe old man.  "When you are In It" aba answered  wltb good humor.  "Fellow travelers on tbt road'' to  heaven," said Darrel, raising bis glass,  "Bt Peter 1������ fond of a smiling face."  "And when you see blm you'll make  a jest," were tbe words of tba warden.  "For I believe be Is a lover a* good  .company," said Darrel,  So tbe dinner went on, ethers talking  only to encourage the tongue of Darrel.

The trouble is to picture1 them as points and not as streaks,  for as the earth rotates it carries .the  photographic apparatus with it, aud  the light from the star makes a Hue,  while the astronomer wants a point.  He must therefore devise a machine  that will counteract the movement of  tbe earth and so keep tho light steadily  tn the same place on tbe plate. Elaborate clockwork must turn the lens  backward to keep it on the star and at  tbe same rate as that at which the  sarth moves forward.  Au astronomer at the Yerkes observatory at Williams Bay, Wis., is quoted  In St. Nicholas as saying that "many  of the most Important results of astronomy have been derived from the  rise of an ordinary-camera, pn a cigar  night point one of these toward the  north pole, and it will be found after  an exposure of one or two hours that  the stars which lie near the pole have  drawn arcs of circles upon the plate.  This is due to the fact that the earth  is rotating upon its axis at such a rate  as to cause every star In the sky to  appear to travel through a complete  circle once in twenty-four hours.  The mere act of photographing Is not  much more difficult than a short exposure out of the window of a moving  car.   Any one can try It  Let tne exposure be for at least five  minutes if the camera is pointed overhead and for at least one hour if directed toward the pole star. The camera may be left out all night If pointed  at the pole, but must be taken in just  before daylight The longer the exposure the longer the star "scratches."  Develop the plate as long as possible.  TRAGEDY BECAME REAL  DRIVING THE  LOGS.  Skill and Activity of the Expert River-  man  In Action.  First and foremost your true river-  man can. ride a log. This does not mean  merely that beds able to stand upright  or to jump from one to another without splashing in, though even tbat is  no mean feat as a trial will convince  you. That is the kindergarten of it  wTJie���������saw���������logJn,Jiie_.jvate_t.J.s_jao.t.jonJy  his object of labor, but bis means of  transportation. Your, true riverman on  drive seldom steps on land except to  eat and sleep.  A journey down stream is to him an  affair of great simplicity. He pushes  into the current a stick of timber,  jumps lightly atop it, leans against his  peavy and floats away as graceful and  motionless as a Grecian statue. When  his unstable craft overtakes other logs  he deserts it runs forward as far as be  can, the logs bobbing and awash behind bis spring, and so continues on  another timber. Jack Boyd once for u  bet rode for twelve miles down Grand  river on a log be could carry to tho  stream's bank across his shoulders.  Fully half tbe time his feet were submerged to tbe ankles,  Nor does quick water always cause  your expert riverman to disembark.  Using his peavy as a balancing polo  and treading with squirrel-like quickness as bis footing rolls, he will run  rapids of considerable force and volume. When tbe tail of a drive passes  through tbe chute of a dam there are  always half a dozen or so of tbe rear  men who out of sheer bravado will run  through standing upright like circus  riders and yelling like fiends.���������Stewart  Edward White ,ln Outing Magazine.  Marriage Expenses,  Careful observation, extending over a  period of forty-two years and supplemented by thousands of Interviews  wltb storekeepers, hairdressers, modistes, milliners, collectors and others,  leads us to believe that tbe average  cost of a bride's trousseau In tbls conn*  try���������taking tbe rich wltb tbe poor���������Is  tbe sum of $0(3,88. Equally careful observation convinces us that tbo average cost of a bridegroom's sartorial  outfit Is slightly leu than one-third  that amount, or, to be exact $22,01.

The housewife especially falls an easy prey to  it. The long hours and close confinement necessary in performing her  household duties sap her strength.  She becomes run down and often suffers extreme misery. Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills are the housewife's friend.  They make new blood���������lots of it���������  and pure blood banishes all women's  ailments. Mrs. E. St. Germain, wife  of a well known farmer of St. John  des Chaillons, Que., found new  strength through Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills. She says: "A year ago I was  extremely weak. I could not attend  tr my work, I suffered from dizzy  spells; my head ached; my blood was  poor; I had a bad cough and. the  doctors feared I was going into con-  sumption. I followed their treatment for some time but without relief. ������I grew discouraged and finally  gave it up in despair. I was strongly advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink  Fills, so procured six boxeB. Before  they were all gone I felt relief. The  headaches and dizziness became lees  frequent and I felt a little stronger.  I continued tho pills for a couple of  months, at the end of which time I  had gained in weight, the pains had  left me, my appetite was good and I  folt as strong and well as ever 1 did.  I cannot say too much in favor of  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, for I certainly owo my good health to them."  The woman in tho house, the man  in the oflice, the boy or girl in the  school will always nnd a friend in  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. Those pills  actual'y make new, rich, red blood  and good blood banishes rheumatism, general debility, kidnoy troubles  nnd those aches and pains caused by  overwork or overstudy; good blood  builds up the tired, unstrung nervos  and makes pale, thin cheeks rosy and  healthy.

The present relations between the self-governing colonies and  Great Britain are to my mind very  satisfactory. The colonies within their  borders do as they like. Great Britain pays practically for the defence  of the Empire and provides and pays  for the consular and diplomatic service in all parte of the world.  Adds to Prestige.  The colonies^ get "defended for nothing; but, on the other hand, Great  Britain would, so far as the Belf-gov-  erning colonies are concerned, be  obliged to maintain the Bame fleets  and army if these colonies were independent, so that the self-governing  colonies really cost Great Britain  nothing to defend. The 'possession'  of colonies adds to BritainVprestigo  in the eyes of the world, but the fact  that they 'belong'' to Britain does  "rr6t~a"dd~muph-tO'the-dignity~of-theJ  colonial status. To sum up, the* present position is more to the advantage  of Britain than it is to Canada or  Australia and as it will shortly ba.  to South Africa.  "Tt is not to be supposed that the  great colonies will long be content  with the position of colonies, and of  the three alternatives it seems to me  that, when a change does come, the  most dignified and noble position will  be to assume tho full status of manhood. Should that time come, I  hope the change will be accompanied  by a defensive alliance. In the means  time Canada at any rate is doing what  she can to provide for her own defence. The building of three great  trans-continental railways, the garri-  eoning of Halifax and Esquimalt, and  the increase both in numbers and  efficiency of the militia are satisfactory evidence of the growing feeling  in Canada of her own strength.*The  character of the Canadian people is  ohanging from colonial to national,  and a vigorous young nation is hastening to join the family of nations  and bring to bear upon international  affairs the civilization of the Anglo*  Saxon."

The second link in  the  chain was the erection  of a large  up-to date hotel in Victoria.    The  third link the placing of a number  of survey parties in the field to locate a route for  the  extension  of  the E. & N, Railway North  and  West of JSanaimo    The   fourth,  link is about to be forged as indicated by  the announcement   of  Mr.  Arthur   Piers,   head  of   the  Company's Steamship Department  that an Empress liner of the same  class as those which  have   established the Atlantic record between.

If I -were asked what was the great-  test foe to beauty In b3th man ami  women. 1 would say not errors in diet,  not lack of exercise, not overwork, not  corsets, not any oue of these, but bad'  mental habtte. If we observe clo<iely the  faces of the people we meet at random  ���������on the street, at the theater or in the  great shops, we will observe that near* ���������  ly all of them are characteviz,ed by the  lined mouth, the drawn brows and other facial distiguromt-uts which accompany bad mental states.  What do 1 mean by bad mental  Btatesl I mean anger, fear, worry,  anxiety, Irritability, regret, envy, Jealousy, lack of trust In oneself and ia  the great good. All theso are bad men*  tal states, and all fheso 'destroy beauty not ouly by Interfering with the  action of the vital organs, but by directly disfiguring the expression of .the  face.  Unless the beauty Beekiug young woman Is prepared to deliberately cultivate good nature, kindliness, calmness, cheerfulness even to hilarity, unless she Is prepared to deliberately  conquer all tendencies to the bad mental states above mentioned, there will  be little or no results from u;.*r efforts  to deveop In herself that most divine  gift of beauty. ��������� Krom "Health the  Basis of Womanly Beauty," by Dr. W.

THERE is a tiny "bit" of a town
at the end of a "bit" of a railroad up in Scotland, where, some
forty-odd years ago, a tiny bit of a lad
was born.
His father was a tall, stooped-over
man, who wore hobnailed shoes and
loved to work in his garden. His mother
was a sweet-faced, fragile woman,
whom' he loved better than anybody
else on earth.
Beautiful woods surrounded the village, and mountains and valleys fllled
with "braes" rushing down to the distant sea.
The boy grew up into a slender, rath*;
er diffident young man, and went across
the border to an English metropolis,
where he secured a modest position on
a newspaper.
After a few years of newspaper work
he began to attempt story writing. His
first book was a dead failure. The title,
_ouriously enough, was "Better Dead."
Then his thoughts turned to the little
home village of Kirriemuir, and he said
to himself, "Well, I know my own home
well enough to describe it, anyhow, so
I think I'll try my hand at that."
So he did, and about the only change
He made was in the name of the town,
to.which he gave the name of Thrums.
The resulting story, short and simple,
but written with a tender touch, was
sent to a, publisher. Much to the young
author's-surprise, it was accepted, and
the publisher wrote:. "Tell some more
stories about Thrums."
So, at the age of 23, tht; young man
���James Matthews Barrie���found himself on the ladder of success! And
after that all he had to do'was to'
keep on writing. Everybody looked
eagerly forward to his stories and
books, and every succeeding one made
him more famous and more prosperous, until today he is said to be earn- '
ing the largest annual income from
his writings of all the book writers
of the day.
And this is the man who wrote "Peter ,
Pan," the most popular play ever written for children, which has also been
published in a beautiful storybook,
Illustrated by 'a fine English artist.
Two of the illustrations are reproduced on this page. '
This story���taking its boy and girl
readers Into the charming Kensington
Gardens of London, with their Boardwalk and animal cemetery and fairies

JT IS' a' popular error to suppose that
John Hanway invented the umbrella, which was no novelty even to ���
A bas-relief in the British Museum
shows us that Assyrian monarch enjoying the advantages of both coach and
umbrella as he moves at the head of his
army. But long before his day, under
Jhe dim dynasties of Young China, the
umbrella was. In high honor.
A Chinese legend attributes the Invention to the wife of'Lou-pan, a celebrated
carpenter of antiquity. "Sir," said this
wonderful lady to her husband, "you
may make with extreme cleverness
houses for men, but it fs impossible to
make them move, while tn"e object I am
framing for their private use can be
carried to any distance, beyond even a
-thousand leagues." And Lou-pan, stupefied by his wife's genius, then saw the,,

The umbrella and the sunshade are
essentially the same. An umbrella is
merely a shade. As such it haunts the
geous ceremonials of the East back into
the morning mists of history.
In India it was always an emblem of
majesty. The' Mahratta Princes who
reigned at Poona and Sattara held the
title of "Lord of the Umbrella."
' But so hard is it to keep track of an
umbrella that many a mere American
would forego" being a Mahratta Prince
if he could be lord of his umbrella for
three months together.

It Is a very curious thing that all over
the world there exists the same superstition in regard to the apparently trivial matter of sneezing.
In nearly every language under the
sun there is some equivalent of "God
bless you!"'with which our oldest inhabitants In the country will salute the
person who sneezes. To this salutation of France is added sometimes the
phrase, "and preserve ,you from the
fate of Tycho Brahe," who is believed
to have got rid of a "death of cold" by
a single sneeze���which killed him,
.,^ln England the regular saying is:
"Once for a wish, twice for a kiss, three
times for a letter, and four times for a
disappointment." In Italy the salutation Is simply "F.eltclta!" or "May you
be fortunate!1' Irf India it is customary
when one sneezes to say, "May you
live!" and tho reply runB, "Long life to
In ancient times the Romans, holding
the Idea that sneeslng between noon and
midnight was a good omen, believed
f.hat between midnight and noon It was
most unlucky, and It they should chance
to.sneese while getting up in the morning they would at once get Into bed
The Germans say "Good health!" because they maintain, and not without
reason, that sneezing Is a warning or
approaching catarrh, and also mark*

A Trick that Seems

GAN yoi*. remove a man's waistcoat
without first causing him to r��
move bis coat?
This Is the way to do it:   Ask him, ia.
the first place, to wear an easy-ftttine
coat of some sort, say a loose overcoat. -
Now, unbutton his waistcoat, unfasten,
the buckle at the back, and' ask htm to-
hold   his   arms   above -his   head.     Sli��

Next, take the right-side bottom end",
of the front of the waistcoat and put Itt
into the armhole of the coat at the*
shoulder, at the sartie time putting the*-
nand up the sleeve and drawing down*

This will release one armhole. Next,
draw the- waistcoat up again, put 0m*

A FAMOUS French painter had a
fixed rule that none of his pupils
were to.be allowed to smoke in
his studio. - "���':������"
One day, however, he came Into the*
room and distinctly saw that one of
the pupils had a lighted cigarette in
his fingers, which he was endeavoring*
Ineffectually to conceal. With a style-
of somewhat heavy banter the painte***-
went up to him.
"That Is a curious kind of pencil you
have got there, my young friend," he
remarked.   "May I askswhat you propose to draw with it?"
"Clouds," was the ready answer.
The Barber's Pole.
The origin of the custom of shaving;
the face Is lost In antiquity. The Greeks
and Romans had publlo shaving p'.ace**
in connection with their baths.
In t,he fourteenth century the barber's
craft was recognized as a profession, me- .
ing allied to surgery. The barbers were-
confined, as to surgery, to the letting at.
blood and leeching, and the ��� extractln**c ���
of teeth, and the surgeons were prohibited from shaving the face.
-lne barber's sign was a striped pols*-
as. far back as 1650. the stripes around
the po'e being symbols of the bandages*
used in wrapping the arm or part from,
which the blood was to be let.

At a last year affair each lady was

to love. No two subjects were the same.
To each of the gentlemen was given the
same picture, also mounted, that some
one of the ladles possessed, with the exception that his hud bu**n cut up into
five or six Irregular nieces, and then
pasted In any position on the card,
which made It hard to discern Just what
its subject was. .Of course, thy^ gentlemen woro supposed to search for the
