The growing importance of  Union Bay has caught the eye of  the merchants in this city, and  as a result a free trip to Cumber-  laud on Saturday evening is now  the privilege of the residents of  Union Bay.

HIGHEST AWARD. ST. LOUIS. 1904  Familiarity with Dirt and  Darkness.  How little some employers realize  what they are doing when they compel employees to work in dark, dingy  factories, rooms, aud basements! The  mind is omnivorous. It feeds upon  and is affected by everything in its  -environment. If it cannot get bright  and cheerful pictures,��������� it feeds upon  liJtte dark and gloomy. We are constantly absorbing the qualities of our  ���������environment. They affect seriously,  though unconsciously, the quality of  ���������our whole Hves.  In these employers' homes we find  flowers and plants in the light, sunny  windows, or in . conservatories; it  would be fatal to put them in dark  -rooms, for they live largely upon the  sunlight. When human flowers and  j?lants are put into dark dingy rooms,  why wonder that they are not healthy,  vigorous, strong, and bright ?  It is as impossible for a mind to  he absolutely normal and healthy in  dark, gloomy surroundings as it is  to raise American Beauty roses in a  dungeon. The mind is optimistic or  pessimistic, according to the brightness and cheerfulness, or the darkness and the gloom, in its environment. No mind, can be normal which  Is not optimistic, and optimism is  .born of brightness, of beauty and joy.  Did you never contrast    the children who were    brought up in   the"  crowded, sunless tenements, children,  , -who, perhaps, have never listened to  any refined conversation or seen any  *ffeally��������� cultured  people,  who  are  familiar with vulgarity and profanity,  uvho perhaps  have never    gotten    a  '.ft������liTmpse of the beautiful country, or  -Aaye_nexer_jeen a beautiful picture,  or anything else that is reaTlynovely^  with children who were brought up  in an environmena of beauty and attractiveness, who lived amidst fiow-  *3rs and beautiful works .of art, who  have, heard only.refined language land  lived with  cultured people ?���������0.

GO In a  -hox~80  A Single  Brain.  *A prominent lawyer who formerly  1 practiced at the bar of Kansas Oity  tells of a funny incident in a court  ' there during a trial in which a certain young doctor was called as   a  witness.  Counsel for tlie other side, in cross-  ���������examining the youthful medico, gave  ���������utterance to several sarcastic remarks  .tending to throw doubt upon the  ability ot so young a mnn.  Ona of the questions was: You  ���������.are entirely familiar with the symptoms of concussion of. the brain V'  "I am."

Dog Steals Horse.  Because "Muggs," an English cocc'.i  dog, owned by J. N. JL������. Reeves, .objects so persistently to the sale of a  horse by his master, the former owner is endeavoring to repurchase the  ho" se, that it and the o.og; waich hav^  been inseparable companions for several years, may spend the remainder  of their lives as chums.  The horse was sold to. Brock Smith,  of East Columbus, and when the new  purchaser attempted to lead the animal from the Reeves barnyard, the  dog held the halter rein with his  teeth, nor would he release it until  forced to do so by his master. By  his pathetic, mute appeals he evinced  his desire to have his equine friend  stay.  Recently the purchaser of the horse  drove him back here and hitched him  to a rack while lie entered a store.  "Muggs" appeared at the animal's  side, and grabbing the halter-rein between his teeth, chewed it in two,  thus releasing his erstwhile companion. The two proceeded to their old  home together.���������Chicago Inter-Ocean.  HOW! BILEANS  SAVED A FIREMAN  Many a man has escaped perils of  fire and ocean to fall a prey tb disease. Bileans saved Fireman * J. R.  Flanagan, of Raglan. Road, Kingston,  from this fate. He says: "I suffered terribly from indigestion and constipation*:���������After-���������food���������I���������had���������acute-  pain, a sensation of weight at the  stomach, and belching, followed by  a worn-put, languid feeling. My  bowels would not work healthily, bad  headaches were common,, and I fell  into a weak, wbr'ri-out state. What  would have happened to me-but for  Bileans I don't know ! One box of  tliis vegetable remedy greatly improved me and a few boxes cured me*  I have now gained weight and am  quite restored." Bileans also cure  piles, female ailments, ,-. anoemia,  Spring debility, 'blood "impurities,  pimples, eruptions,^nd all,liver and  kidney troubles.

London.���������The new central criminal  court erected on the site of the historic old Newgate prison, commonly  known as Old Bailey, was opened by  King Edward, who was accompanied  by Queen Alexandra.  The function was a state affair. The  streets traversed by the royal procession were decorated with bunting and  lined by large crowds. The lord  mayor and the sheriffs in their robes  of state met their majesties at Temple Bar, where tne lord mayor presented the Idng with the city sword.  In a pavilion in front of the  new session house an address  was presented to the king,  who replied and declared the building  ipen. Their majesties subsequently  inspected the interior of the courthouse, the corner stone of which was  laid in 1902. The king, in reply to  the address, referred to the "Barbarous Penal Code" administered  within the walls of the old building  nnd said he rejoiced at the fact that  this was being gradually replaced in the progress towards higher civilizatios by laws breathing a  more human spirit aiming at the nobler purpose of reforming criminals,  by showing mercy to first offenders,  which often proves the means or reshaping their lives.  SALT RHEUM CURED.  HAVE PROVEN BEST  POR LIVER TROUBLES  And Constipation���������Strong Letter in Recommendation bf  DR. CHASE'S KIDNEY-LIVER PILLS.  By Dr. Williams?  Pink    Pills   After  Doctors Treatment Had Failed.  Skin trouble indicates that the  blood is in a poisoned state. It is  the poison in the blood that causes  blotches, pimples, eczema, boils,  salt-rheum or bad complexion. Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills make rich, red  blood that banishes these troubles.  Mrs. Osborne, wife of Andrew Osborne, clerk of the Township of Kennebec, Frontenac County, Ont.,  writes: "I cannot speak too highly  of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, for they  did for me what doctors Jailed to do.  Some years ago I was attacked by  salt rheum in the hands, caused by a  run down condition of my blood. I  endured the tortures of this terrible  disease for some time, and only those  who have been similarly afflicted can  realize my suffering. At times my  hands were so bad that I could not  comb my. hair, I was helpless. I  consulted a doctor but his treatment  failed to "benefit me���������my case seemed  incurable. While in this condition I  read of Dr. Williams' Pink PHIb arid  decided���������to-give���������them���������a���������trial?���������Soon-  I began to improve and by the time  I had taken about a dozen boxes I  was completely cured and I have not  since'had the slightest return of the  trouble, I cari heartily recommend  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to all similar sufferers." . ���������  You can't cure eczema, salt rheum  and skin eruptions with salves and  outward applications. These troubles are rooted in the blood and,can  Only be cured through the rich,', red  blood Dr, Williams' Pink Pills actually make. This simple medical  fact should be known to everyone.  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills not only  cure skin diseases, but .all other  troubles caused by bad blood, such  as anaemia, with its headaches, side-  aches and backaches, heart palpitation, indigestion, rheumatism, neuralgia, St. Vitus dance and the special ailments that afflict so many  women and growing girls. You can  get these pills from your medicine  dealer or by mail at 50 cents a box  or six boxes for $2.50 from The Dr.  Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville,  Ont,  Miss Wise���������Of course, Goldie Box-  ley knew the count was worthless  when she accepted him, but he proved just twice as worthless as she  thought him.

In a recent suit in a Cincinnati  court a lawyer was cross-examining a  Gorman, the point urfdor inquiry be-  ing tho relative position of the doors,  windows, aud so forth, in a house in  whioh a certain transaction was alleged to havo occurred.

With the Jiver in healthful, active  condition there is no trouble from  constipation, and this accounts for  the success of Dr. Chase's Kidney-  Liver Pills as a positive cure for  sluggish action of the bowels.  Mrs. R. Lockley Jones, Mount  Tolmie, B.C., writes:  "I have used Dr. Chase's Kidney-  Liver Pills for some years and always have them in the house. They  are the only pills that relieve me from  constipation and liver troubles, and  I say this after having tried nearly  all kinds without benefit. I would  not be without them and have recommended them to my friends, many of  whom can bear testimony to their  great value in liver and kidney complaints. I am satisfied that Dr.  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills are unequalled as a family medicine."  Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills succeed where mere kidney   medicines  fail because they act promptly and  directly on the liver, take the work  off the kidneys, and then by their  invigorating action on the kidneys  restore them to health and vigor.  Because of the intimate and sympathetic relation of the liver and kidneys it is useless to treat them independently of one another. This  fact was in the mind of Dr. Chase  when he prepared the formula of hia  celebrated Kidney-Liver Pills and the  phenomenal success of this great medicine has proven his wisdom.  Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills < positively cure liver complaint, biliousness, constipation, backache and kidney disease. One pill a dose, 25  cents a box, at all dealers or Ed-  manson, Bates & Co., Toronto. To  protect you against imitations tho  portrait and signature of Dr. A. W.

LIKE everything: else, handwork is  at a premium for decorating  baby slips and the slips for the  baby pillows which grown-ups  find so altogether satisfactory for a  thousand and one uses. The prettiest  slips of all of them are embroidered  more or less elaborately, though invariably only on one side, and the saving,  if you can do that embroidering yourself, is almost the whole cost.  Such a pillow slip as tne one. for which  the pattern is given costs $8 6r $9 to  buy, yet fO cents wiil ar..ply cover tho  cost of making. And the slip, when  finished, is a handsome enough gift for  the baby of your dearest friend���������for  that friend herself, lf she aitects a little  extra pillow f r her bed.  Linen is the best material to make  sucn a slip of���������linen of a close, iirm  weave, as fine as handkerchief linen,  but without the Bheer, cobweiiDy quality  which is the halimark of the prettiest  sort of handkerchief; and which is;  instead, so firm that it is hard to draw  threads in it. ,  If the slip is to tit a pillow of a certain size, take the measurement of the  pihow and adapt the design to it. This  is much less difficult to do than it  seems, for the only part that needs  adapting is the scallop about tbi edge,  the line inside marked at a regular distance from it and the design itself  placed where it is most effective.  If no particular slr.o is indicated, tbe  usual sise is twenty-one inches long by  Sixteen and a half wide.    /,  Make the lower side in two pieces,  the shorter end about five inches deep,  both ends where they meet and lap fin-,  ished with half-incn hems, upon which  buttons and buttonholes are placed.  After the embroidery is done upon the  upper side, baste upper and lower sides  together and mark the scallop plainly.  Either pad the scallop lightly or embroider it over a thread.  The line inside the scallop should be  briar stitched with fine embroidery cotton���������either the double or single briar-  stitching may be used, although the  double adds even more of the dainty0  . touch than does the single. But, whichever you do, take as tiny stitches as  you can, taking them through both  thicknesses, so that the strain of the  pillow comes there instead of upon the  t scallop.  To apply the design, lay Impression  paper over the linen, the design upon  that, and go pver the lines witn a  hard pencil. Fill out the scallop, or  reverse the pattern, tracing over the  scallop again to fill out the other side.  A very pretty slip may be made with  only the larger part of the design embroidered, or one still more effective  than the design shown by repeating  the smaller motif, marked A, in the  opposite corner.  Pad  the embroidery,  and  do  It in  solid work, working the leaves from  -the-edges���������to^the^centre���������with- the-  stitches slanting: toward tbe stem.  Or, if you want to make a slip with  less work on lt than the one shown,  omit the flower design, and make it  with only the'scallop and the briar -  stitching.    ;  The same design may be applied to  the pretty little cases made to tuck  nightgowns in, which are. laid upon  the bed, against bolster or leaning  against the pillows. Twelve by sixteen and a half Inches Is the best size  ior these. ,..'-'  Centrepiece Holders  SOME one has Invented a pretty  treatment of the broomstick or the  pasteboard mailing tube which so  many women have found the most satisfactory thing to wind centrepieces and  dollies around when they have just been  done up.  A twenty-five Inch square of flowered  dimity is edged with narrow lace, or  bound wita wash ribbon or with one of  the many pretty Wash braids, and attached to the tube, which has been  covered with cotton batting in which  sachet powder has been freely sprinkled,  and then with the material.  The dollies are laid flat upon the  square, as soon as they have thoroughly  aired after Ironing, and are loosely rolled around the tube, both dollies and  outer covering kept from unrolling by  inch-wide ribbons attached; one in the  middle of the roll and one on each side  hear the end.  rjmm  *%  4  Spotless Laundering of  Summer Clothes  SUMMER clothes, now that white ls  so universally worn, are apt to be  a trial to the soul of the woman  who wishes them a spotless, glistening white.  Tnis is harder to achive than is usually bel.evtvl. Laundresses, even the  best of them, are ap*. to be caieiess of  little things, all ot which are painfully  . evident on a surface oi. siarchtu iinen,  Bieactiihs ou tae grunt*'. *��������� very tew  weeks is essential to snowy whiteness, but the good effect is quite  marred if unsigntiy green spots are  allowed to remain. After being re-,  moved from the iawn, all gai'intsius  Should be carefully inspected, and ail  such blemishes washed out  Then the hanging of clothes on a  line in the open air undoubtedly improves their appearance���������If the line  is clean. Too pften, alas! this is not  the case, and a skirt will show an  ugly line ot soil in const-uuenov.  The greatest care must bc taken of  a clothesline. It should be always  wiped free of dust before being uaed,  and must never be 'eft out of doors  when not in use, but must be carefully dried and put away. The rope  line is better, most laundresses think,  than one of wire, as danger of rust  is evident even when it is guaranteed  against  Irons also must be kept absolutely  clean and shiny, and thc cover on  the ironing table should, be frequently renewed.   ,  Attention to these little particulars  would prevent many a dress being  thrown back in the wa������*h without  beln? worn���������a necessity provoking alike  to mistress and laundress.  Dc  ; Cleaning Picture Frames.  JOKf'T attempt to clean picture frames  covered with goldleaf, as the finest  "and most beautiful of all gold frames  are. You can tell them by the way the.  gold, as you look at it closely, seems  laid on, here and there curling ever so  slightly away from the frame.  Any sort of cleaning, except the most  casual dusting, is bound to make the  gold scale off in an unsightly fashion.'  at, heart   one-  of the  kindest women of my  acquaintance,"     remarked     a  woman  who is having a hard strug-  fle to1 maintain an existence,  as th������  dor    closed    after   &    recent    caller,  "but   she   has   a-"' faculty   for   doing,  really nice things  in  a way  to  make,  starvation seem a positive joy by contrast:   This morning she came to telfc  me that she had secured the work for  me that I have  been hoping for for  weeks, and her visit has left me   not  exalted over toy success, but thoroughly depressed and at war with myself*  and heaven and earth."  "There is such a difference ln the way  nice things are- done by different people," remarked the friend to whom she-  was   speaking,   thoughtfully,    "and   it  Isn't always suavity or apparent gsra������-  ciousness of manner that makes the receiving of a favor pleasant. I have knowns  those who were  considered to hav* a.  positive genius for tact to*do things tat.  a way  that, simply left you  writhing,  and yet there really wasn't a word that  you could put your finger on or a trlcfc  of manner to Which you could object'"'  "Yes,"   I    know,"    replied    the   firs*  speaker sadly; "I've been through it all  rn  the past  few  mojiths,  and. 1  have-  almost come to the conclusion that it lathe   rough-spoken,   apparently   self-al>-  sorbed people who do  nice things for  you in the nicest way.

You   weren't   left   with   a,  sense of obligation, and, after all. that  is  one   of  the?  worst   feelings   In   the-  world.   I hate doing things for people -  who feel that they must return therrf,  and I hate having things done for ma-  .by people who feel that I must return?  in kind or else remain their everlastlne-  debtor." ���������   .  "It's only a way they have, I suppose," sighed the first woman, as she  turned back to her 'work, "but th**>  world would be a much more comfort^  able place for those of us who haven't  struck luck If the word obligation could-  be cut out" ���������  WHAT TOE  ENGLISH^  *LANGUAGE NEEDS  ������ |^HE Philologist, the Purist and the--  I     Poet were gathered together.  *       "Yes," said the Purist, apropos  of nothing, "what the English language  needs above all Is a word to supply the  place, of   'his   or  her.'    When   I  say,..  'Every man  and woman  loves his or  her parents,'. I am correct,  but awkward.   If I substitute 'their' I am un--  grammatical.    We need badly a  word';  to take the place of this inconvenient.,  'his or her.' "  "The   Esperantists"    remarked    the-  Philologist,, "use 'oni,'  taken from the-  . French."   But no one paid any attention to him, for the Poet was speak-   tag.  "What^I-want,,,-iald-her"l"ia~lot"of--  rhymeo for  rhymeless  English  words.

There are many others ot them���������  words I can't remember now, and shalt.  not until I get them into a poem and  have to change a verse to accommodate,  them."  "Well," said the Philologist, "you people may ray what you like about newr  words. I have trouble enough attending to the spelling and pronunciation of-  the old ones.

"Who '  can tell me where Is tbe Linley school-  house?"  A dozen hands went up.  "You tell," said he to one.  "It's here," was the answer,  "Where's here?"  A boy looked thoughtful.  "Nex* t' Joe Linley's cow pasturV'  he ventured presently.  ''Will you tell us?" the teacher asked, looking at a bright eyed girl.  "In Faraway, N. Y.," said she glibly.  . "Tom Linley, I'll take that," said the  teacher la a lazy tone. He was looking down at his fcook. Where he Bat,  facing the class, he could see none of  the boys without turning. But he had  not turned. To the wonder of all, up he  spoke as Tom Linley was handing a  eiip of paper to Joe Beach. There was  a little pause. The young man hesitated, rose and walked nervously down  ~ihe aisle.  "Thank you," said the teacher as he  took the message and flung it on the  fire unread. "Faraway, N. Y." he continued on his way to the blackboard as  If nothing had happened.  He drew a circle, indicating the four  points of the compass on it. Then he  mapped the town of Faraway and others, east, west, north and south of it  Ko he made a map of the county and.  bade them copy it Around the county  in succeeding lessons he built a map of  the state. Others in the middle group  were added, the structure growing day  by day until, they had mapped the,  hemisphere.  At the Linley; schoolhouse something,  -had���������happenedr���������Gunning���������noqr-sooner-  fihowed its head than it was bruised  like a serpent brawny muscles bad  been easily outdone, boldness had  grown timid, conceit bad begun to ebb.  A serious look had settled upon all  faces. Every scholar bad learned one  thing, learned it well and quickly���������It  Was to bc no playroom.  There was a recess, of one hour at  noon.  All went for their dinner pails  . and sat quietly, eating bread and butter, followed by doughnuts, apples and  pie.  The young men bad walked to the  road. Nothing bnd been said. They  drew near each other. Tom Linley  looked up at Joe Beach. In bis face  one might have seen n cloud of sympathy that bad Its silver lining of amuse*  incut.  "Powerful?" Tom Inquired soberly,  "What?" snid Joe.  "Powerful?" Tom repeated.  "Powerful! JluiJny crimps!" said Joo  significantly.  ���������'������������������ "Why dldu't ye kick him?"  "Kick him r-  "Yes."  "Kick hlm?"  "Kick him."  "Huh-dunno!" snld Joe, with a loolr  of sadness turning into contempt  "Scnirt'i" the other inquired,  "Scnirt? Na-a-w," said Joe scornfully.  "What was ye, thep?" -  "Parr'Iytod-*jcems sos"  There wns an outbreak of laughter,  "You was goin' t' l\elp," said Joe,  addressing Torn Linley,.  A moment of silence fallowed.  "You was golu' t' help," tho fallen  bully repeated, witb large emphasis on  the pronoun.  "Help?" Tom Inquired, sparring for  wind, at It were.  "Yei, help."  "You wan licked 'fore J had time,"  "Didn't dast-that's what's tbe mat*  ter-didn't duet," snid big Joe, with  ��������� tone of Irreparable injury.  "Wouldn't 'a' been nigh ye fer a mil-  lyun dollan," aald Tom aoberly.  "Why not?"  " 'Twnn't safe; tbat'a why."  I '��������� 'FrnW o' him, ye coward!"  "No; 'frahl o' you."  "Why?"  " 'Coa If one o' yer feet bod hit ���������  feller when ye como up agin ttint  wall," Torn answered slowly, 'Ultra  [wouldn't 'a* been nnthln* left uv him."  All laughed loudly,  Then there was another silence. Joe  broke it after a moment of deep  thought  "Like V know how be seen me," aald  bt*.  " 'Tin cur'us," aald another.  "Guess bo's one o' them preformera  like thoy hnve at the circus," waa the  opinion of Ham Beach. "Boo ono take  a pig out o' hit bnt Int' summer."  " 'Taln't fair an' aquare," said Tom  Linley; "oot Jeat eggsac'ly."  "Gosbt B'lieve ru run away," aald  Joe after a pause, "Ain't no fun bert  for me."  "Bett*r.eot." aald Archer Town: ���������Dot  /.' ye kftow* vfhen yer well off."  "Why nol?"  "Waal, he'd see ye wherever ye was  an' do 6uthin' to ye," said Archer.  "Prob'ly he's heard all we been sayin"  here."  "Waal,   I   ain't   said   nuthin'   I'm  'shamed of," said Sam Beach thought-'  fully.  A bell rang, and all hurried to the  schoolhouse. The afternoon was uneventful. Those rough edged, brawny  fellows had become serious.,. Hope had  died in their breasts, and now they  looked as lt they had come to its funeral. They began to examine their  books as one looks at a bitter draft before drinking it. In every subject the  teacher took a new way not likely to  be hard upon tender feet For each  lesson he had a method of his own.  He angled for the interest of the class  and caught it With some a term of  school bad been as a long sickness,  lengthened by the medicine of books  and the surgery of the beech rod. They  bad resented it with Ingenious deviltry.  The confusion of the teacher and some  incidental fun were its only compensa-,  tions. The young man gave his best  thought to the correction of this mental attitude. Four o'clock came at last  The work ot the day was over. Weary  with its tension, ail sat waiting the  teacher's word. For a little he stood  facing them.  "Tom Linley and Joe Beach," said  be in a low voice, "willyou wait a  moment after the others have gone?  School^ dismissed." \  There was a rush bf feet and a rattle  of dinner pails. All were eager to get  home with the story of that day save  tiie4wollt������b&dk>rought,to_sbame.-_TheyjJ  eat quietly as the others went away.1  A deep silence fell, ln that little room.  Of a sudden it had become a lonely  place.  The teacher damped the fire and put  on bis overshoes.  "Boys," said he. drawing a big silver  watch, "hear that watch ticking. It  tells the flight of seconds. You are���������  eighteen, did you say? They turn  boys into oxen here In thia country;  just a thing of bone and muscle, living to sweat and lift and groan. Maybe I can save you, but there's not a  minute to lose. With you it all depends on this terra of school. When  It's done you'll either be ox or driver,  Play checkers?" v  Tom nodded.  "I'll come over some evening, and  .we'll have a game.   Good night"  CHAPTER XIV.  THAT flrst week Sidney Trove  wont to board at the home of  "the two old mfiids," a stone  bouse on Jericho road, with n  front door rusting on idle hinges and  blinds ever drawn. It was a hundred  feot or more from the highway, and In  summer thoro we're flowers along tho  path from Its little gate and vlucs  climbing to the upper windows. In  winter its garden was buried deep un������  der tho snow. One family���������the  Vaughns-cnme once In awhile to seo  "tbe two old maids," Few others ever  saw thom save from afar. A dress-  maker enme once a year and made  gowns for them thnt were carefully  bung In closets, but never worn, To  many of thoir neighbors tbey wore ns  dead as If they bnd been long in tbelr  groves, Tnlen of their economy, of  their odd habits, of their past, went  over bill nnd dnle to far places. Tbey  bnd never boarded tbe teacher and  wero put In a pnnlc wben the trustee  came to aponk of It  "He's a grnnd young man," said he;  "good compnny, nnd you'll enjoy It"  They looked soberly at each othor  According to tradition, one waa fifty,  four, the other fifty-live years of age.  An exclumution broke from the lips uf  one, It sounded like tlie letter "y"  whispered quickly,  "Y!" the other miNwered.  "It might make a match," aald Mr.  Blount, Uie trustee, smiling.  "Y! Samuel Blount!" said the younger one, coming neur aud smiting blm  playfully on the elbow. "You stop!"  MtftA LetltlA Ix'imn laughing silently.  I'hoy never laughed nloud.  "If ho didn't murder us," said Miss  S'mnntlin doubtfully.  "Xousuukc," .said tbo trustee. "I'll  answor for lilm."  "Can't tell wbnt mcn'II do," she persisted wt'iikly. "When I waa In Albany  I wltb Alma Hasklrift a man came 'long  an' tried to pass the time o' day with  j oa.   We Jes' looked t'other way an'  didn't oreten' to hear him. Its awful  to think what might 'a' happened."  1   ������be wiped invisible tears with an  ' emorold������red handkerchief..

He had a voice slow and rusty, a  look arid and unfruitful. Indeed, it  seemed as if the fires of hate and envy  bad burned him out.  The two old maids, feeling the disgrace of it and fearing more, ceased to  visit their neighbors or even to pass  their own gate. Poor Miss S'mantha  fell into the deadly mire of hypochondria.

Many a good matrimonial ship, with  Its sunlit cargo of happiness and hope,  has been wrecked on the rocks of family-interference.  It is in the first years of married life  that foreign interference ls most trying and dangerous, and it is this very  time when it is most conspicuous and  dominant -      *,-  These early years are time of gradual adjustment to new conditions, the,  formative period of harmonizing ..with  a new environment of growth in mutual understanding, perhaps of meeting disappointment and of rising superior to it or of sadly revising golden  dreams and unrealized Ideals, ot taking trial balances on the ledger of happiness, of awakening to the wisdom of  mutual concessions, of learning new  lessons In the school of experience that  .can never be learned vicariously.  These, are the* problems of two tbat  must be solved by them. They need  only kindness, sympathy, generous cooperation.  There is no need for the family to remind the wife that the husband Is not  eighteen carat that he will never make  a fortune, that they fear greatly and  then let their fear expand into a long  catalogue of detail that fades away  Into the dim perspective of the unspoken.  After the goods are bought and sent  home and cannot be returned what Is  tiie use of discouraging the purchaser)  Why not point out some good points,  something helpful and Inspiring?  Sometimes the interference of families becomes even more active and aggressive than this, and because of a  fancied grievance or a genuine opposition it actually comes between husband  and wife and by harsh criticism or condemnation seeks to plant the seeds of  discord between ^them.  Here Instant loyalty of the one to the  other should assert itself and refuse to  listen to the voice. In an instinctive  spirit of protection there should be a  calm, dignified protest of what if unessential should never be spoken and if  of serious Import should be expressed  only In the presence of the one thus  charged with what he or she should  have the opportunity of denying or dis-,  -^plwl^Tief^nQieTweWlFof muspiclon^  have time to root themselves in the  heart of the other.���������Delineator.

Man's Anatomy Suggests a Fruit Diet  As the    Most   Suitable���������What   the  London Lancet Says On Subject,  Those who do uot want to rank as-  extremists will do well to eschew the-  glandular organs, such aB sweetbreada  and liver, to pin their faitl^ to muttorf  and one or two kinds of fish, to give  up coffee and drink weak China tea.  Those who wish to go, tether should  reflect, first that man is neither carnivorous nor herbivorous. For long scientists have obscured the view by useless arguments as to whether or not a  man was meant to live like a cow.  Theits are other species than the  flesh and grass eating animals. All  students : of comparative; anatomy  know that the teeth of human beings  are identical with those oi the tragi vorOus* apes, who live on fruits and  nuts. Not only so, but the proportion  of bowel length to body length in man  corresponds exactly with that in the  same Bpecies in marked contrast to*  what obtains in all carnivorous animals where.the bowel is proportionally short.  A study of anatomy therefore suggests a fruit diet as the most suitable.  Further confirmation is afforded by  the obvious predilection of nearly all  children for such food. The best fruits  for food are apples, bananas, grapes,  nuts, dates, raisins and figs.  :  NutB are especially valuable owing  to the large amount of fat they contain. The old fashioned idea that they  are indigestible is due partly to the  error in taking them at the end of an  already more than ample meat mea!  and partly to insufficient mastication.  Chestnuts are the easiest to digest  and make an excellent food. Many  other fruits may be taken, always remembering that stone fruits sometimes disagree ''and that acid fruits  should be taken in moderation.' Strawberries contain a considerable amount  of purins and should be avoided by  all. with a gouty or "rheumatic tendency. Among fruits we include those  of the cereals, such rb wheat and  rice. White bread is free from purin,  but brown bread contains a varying  amount derived from the husk. The  most wholesome form of bread is unleavened,���������Lancet.

The effect of the licence im
posed by this city upon commercial men, who do luumiess within
the city limit*, is having its results, During the past week or
so several of our leading merchants are ns a result having
their expense* paid to Nanaimo
and Vancouver by the whole-
sahrs, rather than that their re-
prevc?ntntives should be under
tlu- expense of the trip to Cumberland, then to be tracked down
by a policeman until the measly
five dollars is in possession of the
city. No objection is made by
iiuvunc lu lltcpicrtMiic aim ocne-
iit requiting from a ititie outing
at the expense of the wholesalers
but part of the money devoted to
that purpose should and might
as well be spent in Cumberland
ond if as some people state, only
one class of people in Cumber-
land reap the benefit, then im-
pose upon them a heavier licence,
nut bv all means plan to have as
much money as possible spent in
thc city. This licence has been
a had advertisement for the citv
of Cumberland.
