Cumberland kicked off at 6 p.  in, and immediately attacked,  but were driven back, and play  eventually settled down in mid-  field, An attack by the home  forwards resulted in a eorm-r hi>-  ing forced by the left wing.

"The  corouer's  jury,"   replied   Mrs.  Morningstar,   "sayed   she   didn't   suo-  code herself, but was murdered in the !  first degree." !

He was relieved to find that the doot  was   not   locked.     Once   across   the'  threshold he did not even glance about  him until ho had carefully closed the t  door  behind  him.

There was nothing  sufficiently grewsome about it, at least,  ln the matter of its appointments, to j  suggest either a murder or a ghost  True, he felt an atmosphere of tincan-  niness about the place hard to account  for except on the theory that his Imagination,  filled with the account of  the deed of  horror these walls  had  witnessed, colored the room wltb all  tho somberncss of the tale.  He walked across the floor and, placing his lamp on the top of a low shelf,  plunged iuto an examination of tbe  bookshelves.  There were the novels of Scott, Du*  mas, Dickens, Thackeray, George Eliot  and Charlotte Bronte, the tales of  Poe, Macaulay's "England," Gibbon's  "Rome," Carlyle's "French , Revolution," the plays of Shakespeare, many  of the modern English and "American'  poets, the works of Spenser, Milton  and Pope, the "Canterbury Tales" aud  Johnson's "Lives of the British Poets/'  Taking down a volume at random,  he had a vague instinctive surprise at  finding no dust on it.

EVERY DAY BRINGS  A FRESH PROOF  THAT DODD'S KIDNEY PILLS ARE  A BOON TO SUFFERING  WOMEN  Mrs. Rousseau tells how they cured  her after three years of almost  ceaseless pain.  Hintonburg, Ont. (Special).���������Every  day furnishes fresh proof that the women of Canada can be cured of ailments which have hitherto seemed to  be a part of the inheritance of the se:*?  by the use of Dodd's Kidney Pills.  And this place has a living proof in  the person of Mrs. William Rousseau,  of 37 Merton Street.  "For over three years," Mrs. Rous-  seau states, "I was very ill. My  troubles were painful. I suffered very  much with my back. My head ached  iLlm^st^cmtinaoiislfA_-and_I_.scaEcely.  knew what it was to be free from  pitin. I was very wenk and run down.  Occasionally my hands would swell  up, and this, too, gave me a great  deal of annoyance and discomfort. I  began to use Dodd's Kidney Pills and  very soon commenced to improve.  Three boxes cured mo completely."  Nine-tenths of suffering women's  troubles start from diseased kidneys.  The natural way to cure them is to  take away the cause, that is, to cure  the kidneys. Dodd's Kidney Pills al-  ways cure diseased kidneys.  Hon. Sir John Carling Is Now a Very  Frail Old Man.  The ilon. Sir John Carling, K.C.  M.G., who is reported to be in very '-.  weak condition at his home in Lon- ���������  don, has never rallied from the shock  he received by the death, a couple of ;  years ago, ot Lady Carling. Up to :  the time of Lady Carling's death Siri  John retained a well preserved and i  robust appearance and showed no di- '<  minution which wete so conspicuous .  in him during his long Ministerial ca- I  reer at Ottawa. Lady Carling's death ,  had simply a crushing effect upon the ;  genial knight, and he has dwindled >  down to but a shadow of his former j  self in physique and intellect. A few I  days ago before the Easter recess he ,  went down from London to Ottawa to [  take his seat in the Senate and had i  to be helped to his place before the [  Speaker took the chair. He recognized :  his older friends with something like ;  the smile of old days; but he waa j  clearly beyond taking any interest in ;  the proceedings. It is related that Sir |  John Macdonald once described Sir ,  John Carling as being "the kindest ,  man and best fellow" he had ever j  known, in his Cabinet or out of it,  Sir John Carling   was   born   near  London, Ont,, in January, 1828, hii  parents being natives   of   Yorkshire,  England.   He sat in the old.' egida-  ture of United Canada, froin 1857 to j  1867, and in 1862 was appointed Re- [  ceiver-General in the Cartier-Macdon- !  aid Government.

It has '  been rather, a certain strength thnt \  made itself known oftener in indiffor- [  ence to convention, but which could ;  be traced in many finer little nets of  heroism and courtesy if followed by  the careful eye.

There had been a i  particularly virulent case of.the dis- j  ease, and the victim had died. The !  hospital staff at the time w-as short- '  handed, and there was nobody to lay '  the victim out--she was a woman���������ex- ,  cept a nurse and the ambulance driver. The body: was in such a repul- ;  sive condition that these two had been j  driven from the room after raising the |  window in the vain hope of sterilizing  the atmosphere by frigidity.  The two explained the situation to  Dr. Sheard.  "All right," said he. "It's a horrible  job and you only get $15 a week.  Leave it to me."  And he entered the death-chamber,  removed the frozen bedclothes from  the body, closed the eyes of the corpse,  straightened out her limbs and arrayed the body decently for burial.  "It was part of the day's work,"  he said afterwards, quietly.  Smallpox has no personal terrors for  Charles Sheard, M.D., but as a physician ho dreads it above all other  plagues. He has put up the most  strenuous fight against it ever waged  by any health officer, and Toronto's  particularly low smallpox record is a  lasting monument to his painstaking  ability. Personally he is as indifferent  to it as though a proven "immune"���������  but his reliance is based solely upon  precautions. Charles Sheard's left arm  from wrist to shoulder is a mass of  tiny cicatrices���������the marks" of .repeated  self-vaccinations, for he practices what  he preaches. At one time he counted  forty-seven of these little scars, and  -while-he-must-undoubtedly-ha-ve-be-  come thoroughly inoculated against  smallpox it is quite probable that having acquired the habit he will continue to vaccinate himself yearly, at  least till the end of his days.

Iowa State College  ,*****���������������*.  TIlEltE are two Important problems wtiicli cottfrout one-who  is interested iu the Improvement of the home grounds,  the one being what to plant aud the  other where to plant. Of tbe two the  secoud should be considered first, since  the most commonplace things if properly placed will give a good effect,  und, ou tbe otber band, no matter how  choice or rare a shrub may be, unless  it is rightly located and given a proper setting the result is only discord.  The most common mistake made by  the amateur is at. this'point. Tbe one  wbo builds wisely must tirst develop  a'plan to work by. Similarly the improvement of tbe home grounds demands a well developed scheme, and  the smaller the lawn the more important it Is to havo a plan |n order tbat  the limited space may be profitably  utilized.  Lawn planting may serve a threefold purpose. It may be used as a  screen to bide unsightly sheds and outbuildings from the front; second, to assist in the development of a landscape  picture of the home as a whole, and,  third, to provide a supply of cut (lowers. All planting should be done with  the.ultimate purpose of forming a pic-  tixrfa   The home  Itself should stand  ���������Si  ><ft\\W>1,WWi V  X  -V  1%  Ail MAMI'liB OK Of WD   J'lMNTINO IN JjA*f.  INO OUT THIS HUM IS UllODNUB,  out ns the distinctive and fundamental  feature of this picture, and the trees,  shrubbery and grass should nerve us  the framework and background to sot  it off.  To secure this effect there are cur  tulu simple suggest loan wide It may Im  followed, First of all, wo should have  an open ,fn������nt,. For the area Immediately In front of tlie buildings there  Is nothing so appropriate, as u woll  kept piece of lawn, ami this wen  should be kept entirely free of flower  beds, shrubbery or oilier pluming,  Tlio major portion of the planting of  cither li'et's ni' shrubbery  should  be  along  the  sides   ur   wlnti   Is   lerineil  "/lank pluming,"   The minks and cor-  nor* iibinii die huso of tin.' building*  wsrvo us excellent places fur low gnuv-  lug shrubs mi.

The  beauty of an evergreen lies in Its symmetry, and every branch, from the  one next to the grass to the youngest  at the top, should be In place. The  oldest and largest branches are those  nearest the ground, and the pruning  off of the lower branches, which is  frequently done to open up the view,  seriously mars the specimen. In the  majority of such eases the mistake  was made in selecting an evergreen  for this location. Some deciduous  tree which is rather open beneath,  such as the white elm, should have  been planted instead.  The location of the walk Is also an  important feature of tbe landscape.  Walks are to be considered purely as  a matter of necessity and convenience.  They do not In any way add to the  attractiveness of the landscape. Since  they exist for the convenience of tho  public they should lead primarily in  the direction that people wish to trav- !  ^inrrrt*Kr"i!Tiuso-is-less-tban-Ilfty-feetJ  from the street it is genera Ily best to j  run the walk straight out from tlie i  building, as any curve Introduced in |  this short distance is apt to appear  forced and unnatural.

Twenty-five years ago Cairo was an  Oriental city. To-day it is a mixture, hu amazing mixture., of East  and West. Sit on the terrace of one  of the great, hotels on the Kamel  street for half an hour at any time of  day mid you will see in the passing  show the most extraordinary medley  that tlie modern world has known,  writes H. Hamilton Fyfe in The Loudon Daily Mail. Here dashes a taxi-  cub, and scrambling out of its way is  a man on a donkey, who looks as' if  he came straight out of the Book ol  Exodus. He jogs along with a dignified air. You meet men riding on  donkeys on fvery street. There are  stanus for these patient animals, just  as we have stands for cabs. You can  hire them as we take a hansom.  After the donkey come smart motorcars and carriages, in which wealthy  Caircnes are taking the air. They  might be in Piccadilly or the Avenue  din Cluunps-Elysees. Then suddenly  there is a stoppage of the traflio.  What is that wailing noise? It comes  from a body oi ragged-looking ni'i'.i,  beggars apparently, who are shuffling  along three or four abreast. They  wear white turbans over a brown  cloth skull-cap. Their dirty robes of  white or blue reveal bare legs beneath.  Behind them comes a more respectable procession, all men, some in  European clothes with the red tar-  bush or fez, some in long garments  of. striped silk, showing at the neck  a neat embroidered ^v(Ustooat. And  seo, following them again is a bier  covered by a colored cloth and borne  upon men's shoulders.  It is a funeral, a poor man's funeral. A well-to-do corpse would have a  number of mourners carrying silver  censers and dishes of green herbs, to  -guuJu_Jtaml_fiLik. This is the last  promenade of a inTtn~H-no~^ccmTntT  Yet Uie beggars cry with a will,  "There is no God but Allah, and Ma-  homnu'd is his prophet," and the  police clear the way. The dead man  is attracting fhore attention than he  ever did while he was alive.  It you wait long enough,.you aro  sure to see the stream of fashionable  cars and barouches interrupted by a  wedding, First comes a band niaking  Oriental music on brass instrument'-  or bagpipes and tom-toms, then a  siring of decorated carriages, The  bride's is completely covered over by  gay "Manchester good."  While the marriage feast is going mi  the band will play outside the house,  which is also profusely decorate.'..

It is a good thing sometimes to be  independent, but wo think, not in  this instance.
