Friday  a southeast wind got up, and Continued all dey, with alternate  shower* of rain and snow. This continued through Friday night, and  Saturday, until about4 p.m. So  violent was the wind during Friday  that the City of Nanaimo, on her,  trip from Union Bay to Nanaimo.  was forced to seek shelter in Nor*  west Bay, near Englishman's river,  and was unable to proceed on her  way until noon Saturday. The  number ofpaBseugers she carried  on thai trip was larger than usual,  and their many Mends were deservedly anxious when word wat received here Saturday mprning that  she had not arrived at her destination. The weather duriag the  two days was the worst experienced  here for years. Fortunately, the  wites -.were not badly damaged*  only slight breaks occuring, the  winds which are the worst for this  being westerly.  ;< 0       ������������������������������������  NEWS NOTE^OFtHE  CITY  A lady living in Vict^^rants  a young gj[r) 10 fc> |$.*#&%. up  For particulars apply ihfa-nffi-fa)^.

Mr. Eaoul Pilon, 116 Rue Notre Dame,  Lachino, P.Q., Can., writes:  "I write you a few words to express to  you my satisfaction at being cured. I  %va9 afflicted with catarrh of the throat  and ��������� nose and suffered much. I was  ���������greatly discouraged. I had a bad breath  ������,nd bad taste in my mouth in the inorn-  'ing.  "I took treatment for some time with-  >out obtaining relief. At the advice of  ���������friends I tried Peruna and the results  "have been highly satisfactory. At the end  fof four months  I was completely cured."  Neglected catarrh becomes chronic. Having  developed into  the  chronic  stage,   a  longer and more. persistentUreataient will  be,required to cure lt.Jjhan if the dis-  ���������oase were treated at tlie onset.  However, Peruna will bring relief, whether the catarrh is acute or chronic. If  -you are wise you will keep Peruna on  \nsmd and take a few jioses at the first  appearance of a cold or cough, and thus  aaye yourself both suffering and expense.

Dcn't wait until the littlo one is  sick, for sometimes an hour's delay  may prove fatal. This medicine  cures stomach troubles, oonatipation,  diarrhoea, simple fovers and makes  teething painless. If children are  sick Baby's Own Tablets make them  well; and bettor still an occasional  'Vs.' will keep them well. The Tab-  Vets arc good for children of all nges  and nro guaranteed to contain no  opiate or harmful drug. Mrs. Joseph  Ross, Hawthorne, Ont., says: "I  hnve xmed Baby's Own Tablots and  Jlnd them just the thing to keep ohil-  diun well." These Tablets nro pold  hy nil medicine dealers or you eiui  fi't them bv mail at 2fio n box by  writing Thn Dr. WiUi.'ims' Medicine  Co,, Brockville, Out,  Those who are readiest to condemn;  as "scornful innovations" or "Americanisms" various suggestions for an  altered orothography are apt to forget  how arbitrary the greatest of English  dictionary makers occasionally was  in his choice between variant spellings. It was Dr. Johnson who added  the "k" to "musick'* and "rhetoriclc"  and "physick," which before hia day  were more commonly spelled as we  spell them now. "Labor" and "honor"  and "favor" irritate many readers,  who style ih em Americanisms. But it  was Dr. Johnson who introduced the  unnecessary, though, perhaps, rather  more graceful "u," and who wrote, in  addition, "authour" and "errour" and  "governour." The last spelling has  only dropped out of the English Prayer Book In the twentieth century. How  many church-goers have noticed tho  change ?--Lon don Spectator.  The Petticoat Peril.  Just,eight people are said to hare  been present at a meeting held in London the otber day for tbe purpose of  forming a "society for keeping woman  ln her proper place." But the chairman announced that SOO letters of  sympathy had been received. The  meeting was called by a certain John  S. Bloom, and one Archibald Glbbs by  name qctod as chairman. Both seemed  to have* taken alarm at'tho recent "suffragette" uprising in England, th������ aim  of wh,lcb, they said, was tbo ultimate  subjection of man.  Record Ssntencs For Errort.  A grammarian was talking about  grammatical slips that, through their  magnitude, merited immortality.  "There is one sentence," ho said,  "that has lived for a hundred years  on account ol its tremendous incorrectness, In this sentence every word,  every single word, is ungrnrnmuticul.  II'h hard to beat that, isn't it?  "Tlie sentence wns spoken by a little girl in a sheep pasture. Looking  at tno flocks, she snid to the shep-  herd:  "'Is thom sheeps yournP"  "This sentence, with every word m-  'cnriwt. holds the record in its class."  Lives on Sweet MIIV.

OBSTINATE FACESORES  REFUSED TO CLOSE FOR 4 YEARS  Zam-Buk  Inside  Two  Healed Them  Weeks.  Have you some eruption, or sore,  or ulcer, or wound, on\any part of  your body which has hitherto refused to close, no matter how treated?  If so, that is a case for Zam-Buk  the great herbal balm. The herbal  saps and essences in this balm are  so powerful that they can heal the  worst cases of chronic sores, ulcers,  blood poison and skin diseases. Here  are proofs of this:  Mrs. W. H. Taylor, of North"Bay,  Ont,, says: "I had a scaly spot as  big as a ten cent piece on my face.  I had it for four years, and hardly  a ��������� night during that time went by  hut. what'I applied cold cream, or  <some ointment or other, but it  would always be there. I recently  applied Zam-Buk, and in about a  week's time the spot had disappeared completely. I cannot thank you  enough for your; remedy, and I tall  everyone'to be "sure and keep Zam-  Buk in their house."  - .Mrs. ::������." X Holden.of 343 West  Hannah ST., "Hamilton7" saysT*~"My  little girl had a'running sore on her  leg which defied all treatment. I applied Zam-Buk, and in about a week's  time the wound was closed. I have  found Zam-Buk just as good for other  skin troubles and injuries."  ������������������Mr.* J. Hv Hamilton, of Thornbury,  says: "The first Zam-Buk T obtained wasi for a friend who hnd an obstinate sore on her temple. It had  been treated once or twice by a doctor, and would heal up for a short  time, but would break out again.  Som-Biik healed it permanently, and  it shows no sign whatever of returning."  Similar grateful testimony is to  hand from men and women in all  parts of Canada. Zani-Buk  is a sure cure for all skin diseases  nnd injuries, such as cuts, burns,  bruises, eczema, psoriasis, ulcers,  scalp sores, cold sores, chapped  hands, itch, rashes, tetter, face sores,  etc. It. is also an unequalled embrocation, and rubbed woh on to parts  affected cures rheumatism, sciatica,  neuralgia, colds on ohest, etc. All  druggists sell at 50c a box, or rm\,y  be obtained post free from Znm-Biik  Co., Toronto, upon receipt of prico.

CmV7������As'//2&  By Dorotfty XuSe  (N   small   houses   there ?seems \ve*iy  little room for bookcases.  Thewalls  &re  so broken  up .with 'doors  and  ,       windows that the Sew feet ot wall  upace remaining is needed ;forithe,neees-  isary pieces of furniture. ������uch, ast tables,  pianos,  sofas or desks.   And yet, with  just a little careful planning and eon-  'trtvint?.   room  could probably toe rmade  tor & hundred books.  First, consider the mantelpiece. This  often, affords, great opportunity for little book shelves, to be built on either  side, and also above lit. And how cozy  this is. for what is more homelike and  inviting than books and a are? Besides, an ugly mantel <oon often be completely transformed in Uhis way.  Now turn your attention to the -window.  If the window iSliris not less thai  tern -or three 'foot irom v.ie ground, the  ledge can be extended and bookshelves  ' built .beneath it. One of the accompanying illustrations -shows a window done  ln this way.  Sometimes tlry shelves can be built  with great -effect .about a door or window. They should not be more than  nine or ten inches wide. Books should  be put on the shelves on either side of  the door or window, and Dottery nlaced  on the shelf across the top.  A cozy corner can have shelves built  above it, but take care that they are  high enough, so that you will not bump  your head against them, and also that  they are firmly put up and cannot topple down on some unsuspecting person.  The old-fashioned hanging shelves are  pretty and also economizers of space.  These look particularly well just above  i desk or writing taWe.    Some of tb������  prettiest effects can be had wltb Bt������ta-  bookcases that stand out in tho room.  A bookcase like the sketch shown is  adorable just beside a big, easy chair,  and, with some well-chosen books on its  shelves and a plant or vase of flowers  en tne top, gives a delightful touch ot  color to the room.  '   A valuable collection of books should,  of  course,   be  kept  in  bookcases  with,  glass doors  to protect them  from  the-  dust; but, unless they are particularly  good ones, shelves without doors are th*  most decorative,  as  the colors of the  books show up better.    If the shelves  have little curtains on them, which can  be drawn together when the room is not  being   used  or  at  sweeping  time,   the-  book& w..l keep fresh and clean  for &  long time. Curtains can improve a rootra  very much If they are of soft material,  which hangs in pretty folds, and of rich*  harmonious  colorings.    There  are lot������  of delightful  things to bo had in th*  shops, and at ridiculously small prices.  Cotton pongee, cotton crepe, mercerised  cotton, sateen and eolienne are all pretty and suitable for bookcase curtains^  ai.d not one of them costs more than 25,  <.tjus a yard. i  IMPRQVISED BOOKCASES  4t  is often  prettier and  cheaper U*.  have bookcases with curtains, because  when   curtains   art   used   very   cheap  shelves can be put up.   In fact, an oid,  crate, with three or four shelves put in,.  it, when stained, answers the purpose  beautifully.   Or several soap boxes can..  be piled together, in one way or an-;  other,   and   stained.    When   curtained*'  they  look most imposing, so much aa  that no one would dare to breathe ������t ,  tneir humble origin.  The: e is much that can be said on tke  arrangement of books, regarding tnetr  contents, size and coloring, but I sbau.  only touch on this subject, and suggest,  that when arranging a shelf of books-,  you take care not to put one bright  yellow one among a row of deep reda  or browns. It wou)d be too glaring and,  conspicuous. We should not r be ablo tti  notice any one book more than another.}  They should all be a background. And?  so if there must be a bright yellow onei  in the row, lead up to it with softt  greens and tans, so that It cannot pro-t  claim itself above all the others. Few*  realize what a factor books 2an be to a  room in their coloring as well as thefaj  oractical valye.

,In  the true  sease  of  soaking  it  ii
��� probably never thus prepared. Bii
:Vhen horses are worked hard it hai
'in many instances been found profit
I'able to chaff tne hay and grind tht
"grain and to mix the grain with j
) sufficiency "of cut hay which has beet
: moistened with   water.   When horse*
��� are on snore allowance for ' time ti
ent they can take more fpod in a gH

in the ordinary way. ' '    ":
Bran is also fed to them occasional
'ly as a mash'--that is, water is poure��
on it, frequently hot, and  \ie mas}
is stirred so that it all becomes moist
Th.us prepared the bran can be mori
feiidily: eaten by horses, and the ini
'fluence on the digestive tract is als(
; probably more helpful because of thi
������hioisture than if the mass had beei
Jed dry.
:'   Food  is seldom  soaked  for  cattle,

jjbhat corn Boaked for swine does noi
���produce more wins than when fed

;are abundant with which it comes in
j "contact in rumination ond also in the
i various processes oi digestion.

Many   Good    Reasons   Why   Sheep
Should Be Raised On Farms.
Truly sheep raising is a branch oi
larming in which comparatively few
farmers are engaged. Yet there aro
inany good reasons why sheep should
be raised on farms. In the first place,
it is well knpwi^'to air farmers that
there are many un tillable spots on
the farm that form seed beds for the
innumerable" injurious weeds the
farmer hgs to contend with. As sheep
are the Test foragers of all farm ani:,
mals, it is for the purpose of keeping down tho weeds that we* raise
sheep. Then, too, there is also a
-tevenue derived from the wool and
mutton produced.
In starting to develop a flcjpk ol
wool and mutton producers the ewea
need not he pure bred. They must,
however, all be of the low set, com-
pact, blocky type and of uniform
quality. They should not be bred until the second year, by which timo
they are strongly developed and will
throw strong, healthy lambs.,
The, selection of the rain is the
most important thing connected with
sheep raising. Ho is half the flock,
and on him rests its destiny. Under
1?e used. He must be pure bred. The
difference in prico will be money well
invested. He should be typical of the
breed one wishes to develop and
should havo the breed characteristics. - '   * -'
Severely culling and breeding only
tp strong, healthy sires- ai'O the twd
essentials for developing a profitable
flock of breeding sheep. In culling d
flock all oWes not of t^o proper typd
-.should, be disposed of, thus-, bringing
the flock as near, to a uniform type at
Tho management of the owes from
breeding time until lambing tirao ia
of considerable importance. They ro
quire proper shelter, food and care t<j
keep in good condition and also bring
etrono;, healthy lambs. A shed or out
building protected from the cold
north winds, will be sufficient foi
shelter, provided it can be, closed
during srtormy weather, Roots, eithoi
turnips or mangels, clover hay and
oats form an excellent ration foi
, breeding owes, Thcso fed in judicious
quantities will bring tho flook sue
cessfully through the breeding and
lainbiuff BeitRon. Salt and watot
ahouid be within eafly access at all
times of the yeur.
Tho owofi re<puro some attention al

young iinnba aro strong onoti^h to

In such disfavor was tbe poor man  that all would have been glad to have  hlra go anywhere, so be left Hillsborough.  One dayjn the Christmas holidays a  boy came to the door of Riley Brooke  with a bucksaw on his arm.  "I'm looking for work," said the  boy, "and I'd be glad of the chance to  saw your wood."  "How much a cord?" was the loud  Inquiry.  "Forty cents."  "Toox much," said Brooke. "How  much a day?"  "Six shillings."  "Too much," said the old man snappishly. "I used to git $6 a month when  I was your age, an' rise at 4 o'clock In  the mornin' an' work till bedtime. You  boys nowdays are a lazy, good fer  nothin* lot.   What's yer name?"  "Sidney Trove."  "Don't want ye."  "Well, mister," said the boy, who  was much lu need of money. "I'll saw  your wood for anything you've a mind  to give me."  "I'll give ye 50 cents a day," said tbe  old man.  Trove hesitated. The sum was barely half what he cou'-J earn, but he bad  given his promise and fell to. Riley  Brooke spent balf the day watching  end urging bim to faster work. More  than once the boy was near quitting,  but kept bis good nature and a strong  pace. When at last Brooke went away  Trove beard a sly movement of the  blinds and knew that other eyea were  on the watch.   He spent three days at  _the_,1ob���������-lamlng,_rwearisome_daysLafter.  so long an absence from heavy toil.  "Waal. I suppose ye want money,"  Brooke snapped as the boy came to the  door.  v"How mucb?"  "One dollar and a half."  "Too much, too much. I won't pay  It."  "That was the sum agreed upon."  ."Don't care. Ye hain't earned no  dollar an' a half. Here, take that an'  clear out," having said which Brooke  tossed some money at the boy and  alammed the door In bis face. Trove  counted the money. It was a dollar  and a quarter. He was sorely tempted  to open the door and fling it back at  him, but wisely kept his patience and  walked away. It was the day before  Christmas. Trove had planned to walk  home that evening, but a storm had  come, drifting the snow deep, and he  had to forego the visit. After supper  he went to the Sign of the Din). The  tinker was at home in bis odd little  sliop and gave him a hearty welcome,  Trove sat by the fire and told of the  unwing for Itlley Brooke.  "God rest him!" snld the tinker,  thoughtfully puffing his pipe. "What  would happen, think yo, It a man like  him wero let Into beuven?"  "I pannot Imagine." said tho boy.  "Well, for one thing." said the tinker,  "he'd begin to look for chattels, an' I  do fear me there'd soon be many without harp*,"  "What Is one to do with a man like  that?" Trove Inquired.  "Only thla," said the tinker-"put  hlra In thy book. He'll muke good  history. But, ior. for company he's  poor."  "It's ��������� new way to use men," laid  Trove.  "Nay, an old wsy-a very old wny,  Often God makes nn example o' rare  malevolence tn* seems to say, 'Look,  despite and be anything but this.' Like  Judas tnd Herod, be li an excellent  figure In ��������� book. Put bin In thine,  boy,"  "And credit blm wltb full payment?"  the boy asked.  "Lone ngo, prslee God, there wai a  great teacher," said tho old man. "It  It a diy to think of blm, Return good  for evil���������thoie were hlii /frords. We've  never tried It, an' I'd like to see bow It  may work, Tbe trial would be amusing If It bore no better fruit,"  "What do you propose?"  'Weil, iay we take him a gitt, with  ������tir belt wishes," said the tinker.  "If I tun afford It," Uie I-oy replied.  The tinker answered quJekly: "Oh,  I've always a Utile for a ClirlKtmu*.  an* I'll buy the gifts. Ah, t������oy, lets  away for tbe gift*, We'll-we'l! punish him with kindness."  They went together nnd houpht a  pair of mittens and n warm tmiitler for  Itlley Brooke nnd walked to his door  wwh them and rapped upon it. Bruoke  came to the door wllh a cmndle.  Whnt d'ye want?" ho tit-nut inled.  "To wlsb you merry Christmas and  pr-wnt you gift*." Mid Trove,  The old man rained his candle, surveying them wltb surprise and curies-  H.v.  "What ftftt'r" be luyuutd in a Bii'.d#t  "Well," said the boy, "we've brought  you mittens and a muffler."  "Ha. ha! Yer consciences have smote  ye!" said Brooke. "Glory to God, who  brings the sinner to repentance!"  "And fills the bitter cup o' the ungrateful," said the tinker, and tbey  went away.  "I'd like to bring one other gift,"  said Darrel. >.  "What's that?"  "God forgive me���������a rope to bang  kin!   But mind thee, boy, we are try-  "Ua, hal    Yer consciences have emote  yet" '  ' .'  Ing the law o'the Great Teacher, and  -ift-us-see-ifrwe-ean-ieai'n-to-loye-tbis-  mau."  "Love Riley Brooke?" said Trove  doubtfully.  "A great achievement, I grant thee,"  said the tinker, "for if we can love him  we shall be able to love anybody.- Let  us try an' see what comes of it."  A man was waiting for Darrel at the  foot of the old stairs���������a tall man, poorly dressed, whom Trove bnd not seen  before und whom now be was not  able to see clearly In the darkness.  "The mare is ready," said Darrel.  -" "Tie a dark night."  He to whom the tinker bad spoken  made no answer.  "Good night," said the tinker, turning. "A Merry Christmas to thee, boy,  an' peace an' plenty."  "I bave peace, and you bave given  me plenty to }h!nk about," said Trove.  On his way home the boy thought of  tbe stranger at the stairs, wondering  If be were the other tinker of whom  Darrel bad told bim. At bis lodging  be found a new pair of boots with only  the Christmas greeting on a card.  "Well," said Trove, already merrier  than most of far better fortune, "be  must have been somebody that knew  my needs,"  CHAPTER Til.  THE clock tinker Was off In tho  snow paths every other week,  In more than a hundred  homes, scattered far along  road lines of tbe great valley, be set  the pace of tbo pendulums, Every  winter tlie mnre was reuted for easy  drivlug find Darrel made bii journeys  afoot. Twite a day Trove passed tbe  little ihop, and lf thero wero a chalk  mark on tbe dial be bounded upstairs  to greet bis friend. Sometime! be  brought another boy Into tbe rare atmosphere of the clock ihop���������one, may-  bnp, who needed tome coumel of tbe  wise old man.  Spring bud come again, Bvery day  lowers wnlKod'the bills nnd valleys  around Hillsborough, tbelr bands  twinging with a godlike gesture tbat  summoned the dead to rise. Everywhere was tho odor of broken field or  garden. Night had como again after  a duy of mngic sunlight, nnd toon after  8 o'clock Trove was at tbe door of the  tinker, witb a schoolmate.  "How arc you?" mid Trove, ai Dar*  rel opened tlie tioor,  l>������ (dr tot Un- mmhl w' }uU," kit id thi'  old inun promptly, "Enter, Sidney  Trovo, and another young gentleman."  The hoys took the two chain offered  them in silence.  Wiiki hoc, tin* tinker atioeo, turning  to Trove, "thou bant thy cue. Give us  the linen."  "Pardon inf." said the boy. "Mr.  Parrel, tny friend Ilk-hard Kent."  "Of the academy V" aald Darrel ti he  l.rM io iln L.ml cf Kvnt.  "Of the academy." snld Trove.  Alt'.

"He would like to Join this night  school of ours," Trove answered.  "Would he?" laid the tinker, "Well,  lt is one o' hard lessons. Wben ye  come f multiply love by experience,  an' subtract vanity an' add peace, an'  square the remainder, an'-then divide  by the number o' days in thy life, it  is a mighty problem, an' the result  may be much or little, an* ye reach  ���������ft"-  ���������������������������   ;..;---?.'  ���������J3e paused a moment, thoughtfully  puffing the smoke.  ''Not in this term o* school," be added  impressively.  All were silent a little time.  "Where have you been?" Trove Inquired presently.  "Home," said the old man.  There was a puzzled look on Trove's  face,  "Home?" he repeated with a voice of  inquiry.  "I have, sor," the clock tinker went  on. "This poor shelter is not me home.  It's only for a night now an* then. I've  a gcand house an' many servants an' a  garden, sor, where there be flowers-  lovely flowers���������an* sunlight an' noble  music. Believe me, boy, 'tis enough to  make one think o* heaven."  "1 did not know of it." said Trove.  "Know ye not there is a country in  easy reach of us with fair fields an'  proud cities an' many people an' all  delights, boy, all delights? There I  hope thou shalt found-, a city thyself  an' build it well so nothing shall overthrow lt���������fire, nor flood, nor the slow  siege o' years."  "Where?" Trove Inquired eagerly.  "In the Blessed Isles, boy, in the  Blessed Isles. Imagine the infinite sea  o' time that is behind us. Stand high  an* look back over its dead level. King  an' empire an' all their striving multitudes are sunk In the mighty deep. But  thou shalt see rising out. of it the  Blessed Isles of imagination. Green-  forever green are they���������and scattered  far into the dim distance. Look! There  is the city o' Shakespeare���������Norman-  towers an* battlements an' gothic  arches looming above the sea. Go there  an' look at the people as they come au'  go.

It may be estimated that tbe  thumb represents fully a Jblrd of the  total value of the hand.

Tbe  percentage is based on 100 as tbe total  Industrial value of the hand previous  to the accident, a loss of SO per cent  representing half of the value, etc..  The total loss of the index'finger  causes an Incapacity estimated at 10  to 15 per cent in Austria, 16 to 20 per  cent ln Germany, 15 per cent for the  left and 20 per cent for the right by  Italian courts.

It goes  without saying that any man who  has an honest inclination for the  newspaper life is a man of good principles ; an honest man fears no publicity, and is willing to stand up for  that which is good/therefore, we say,  a man who has a standing desire to  iter the newspaper arena never does  so with the idea Of lowering "the"  newspaper ideals,-bu-t-'with the idea  of adding his individuality to the efforts of hia brethren of the. fourth  estate, to the end that something may  be done for the general good of mankind. ,  Many men have lived their'allotted  span with this'-"desire. always beckoning them, and yet lack the opportunity to gratify their ambition, while  others identify themselves with the  profession after their yen rs would indicate approaching middle age, and  by their aptitude and energy, make it  a success from'the start.

THE EVILS OF  CONSTIPATION  SPECIALIST    SAYS    WOMEN    IN  PARTICULAR    ARE     SUFFERERS  Why Bileans Prove So Beneficial  A medical specialist states that  eight out of ten cases of headache,  dizziness, sallow complexion, and various ailments peculiar to women for  which he is consulted have their origin in constJpa.tion. Although this  ailment is very common amongst  both sexes,, women appear to be the  greater sufferers. Bileans cure constipation by stimulating the liver and  regulating the bile flow. Bile is the  natural purgative of the body. Bileans regulates its secretion.  Mrs. S. E. Baldwin, of 38 St. Paul  Street, Toronto, sAya:"l have taken  Bileans for constipation and dizziness  and found most satisfactory results.  Bileans do not cause any griping, and  not only cure constipation but also  improve  the general health."  Mr, A. Monaghan, of Berlin, recently proyed this vegetable remedy  in a similar way. He says: "For  irany years I suffered from, both constipation and piles. Nothing I have  evet tried is to be compared, for  beneficial result to Bileans. They  hav*.'' made r'i3&1t"different man, and  if any sufferer would like to ask me  any question on their operation and  their value I" will be glad to give  all the information I can."  Such is the result of exhaustive  tests of Bileans. This great vegetable  remedy is invaluable also for sallow  complexions (due to bile in the  blood), pimples, greasy, sallow skin,  und blood impurities generally. Bileans also, cure indigestion, debility,  rheumatism, anemia, female ailmen'  and irregularities, "run-down twel-  i7j.es," liver and kidney complaint,  headache, sleeplessness, wind spastns,  palpitation, etc. AU druggists sell  at 50c a box, or obtainable post fiee  from the Bilean Co.; Toronto, upon  receipt of price.

It  is laughable to hear people arguing  to the contrary, aud that game in  juoreasiug in B. C. One haa only  to take Denman and Hornby Islands as examples to prove the  contrary. Ten years ago, the Is*  lauda teemed with blue grouse  Certain unscrupulous residents  made a practice of shooting for  market,generally starting about a,  Week before opening day, so that  the first boat calling after the sea-  con opened, left with several hundred brace of birds.

There are  people who object to the gun licence  but few 9re those indeed, who do  not re/tlize,, that something mus't  speedily be done to stop the slaught-  such premature and excessive toil  in boya is the breaking down of the;  feet, which results in what is po  pularly nowhk as 'flat foot.' Un  der these circumstances it is seen  quite frequently inits seyerest forms  and thus often results in perraa-  Jnently forbidding the continuances  of the trade learned as a. boy.  The girl, on the other hand, does  her work in the factory in a sitting  position as a rule, The effect now  is frequently the development of  what is known as 'rotary lateral  curvature of the spine'. This re-  suite in disabling the expansive  powers of the chest, cro.wds the  heart and lungs abnormally, and  even effects the capacity and shape  of the pelvjsl For this reason it js  well know/i that severe cases pf lateral curvature result in bringing  the ten ure of life far below the average by its effect upon the heart  and lungs.
