'  The method is as follows: Cut off  the top of an'egg, empty out the  contents, and place-1 inside a good-  sized live cockroach and mako a few  holes in the egg shell so that the  creature can seo tha light and  breathe. Place a number of the encaged cockroaches dt one end of the  table and a lighted candle at tho  other.  The insects, as soon as they see the  light, will make for it, and a race  takes place, the result being a very  curious and amusing series of wobbles on the part of tlie egg. The  sport is just at present enjoying a  perfect furore.

A Vatican cortimi&i.oi? appointed .  several months ago- to investigate  conditions is ready with its report.  Though thero havo been few violations of tho canonical law, tho coin-  mission says there bave been 4.000  authorized separations recently.  Divorce, as such, has always boon  under the Church's ban. Matrimonial  separations havo been countenanced,  however,-��������� under tho canonical law,  annulling marriages for the following causes.  Ceromony not in' accordance with  Catholic rites,  Proof after marriage that huBband  and wife are nearly related.  Conviction of improper conduct by  husband or wifo.  Impersonation by a third person  nf either brido or bi'lclonroonv.  Bigamy by either husband or wife.  Inability of husband or wife to fulfill marriage rotations.  The committee's report shows that  there havo been many instances in  which to soenro a mutually doslrod  separation tho husband and wifo  havo agreed to admit violation of  one of these laws. In othor conoi it  was found, false tpptlnmny haa bo������?n  obtalnod through thn connivance of  lawyers or phynlHitns to convince  tho church nuthorHloR that thero  have boon bronchi* of tho canonical  ruloi.

PHILADELPHIA, Sept. 12.��������� In  the attempt to- employ a door and  a match in tlio extraction of on  aching tooth yesterday, John Tobias  23 years old, burned his neck and  chin severely. Incidentally he lost  a necktie and a shirt through fire.  He extracted the tooth, however.  Tdbias had been awakened in- the  early hours yesterday morning with  a Jumping pain in his mouth. Various remedies applied from* then on  throughout tho day gave little or no  relief. Ingenuity born of desperation ovolved an original plan.  Procuring a piece of stout cord.  Tobias tied one end around the aching member. The other he tied to  the knob of the back door. Standing off until the string was taut, he  reached into his pocket, took from  his-match safe a match and struck  it on the jam.  Then he suddenly applied it beneath his chin. Tho idea, of course,  was. to excite, thc motor nerves to a  "Sudden~jorkrfrom~dani7er:���������This'-sue*^  ceeded, and tho tooth, blood red at  one end, swung back and forth with  tlie motion of the door. But tbo  sudden jerk landed the lightod match  on Tobias' necktie and shirt front.  In a momont they wore aflame and  scorching his chin and breast.  Covering the fire, with his hands,  the flame was soon extinguished, and  Tobias wont to St. Luke's hospital  around the corner for troatment.

"Y������s. sir," said the boy. He had  taken off one worsted mitten and held  a five cent piece clutched tightly la  his red "fist.  The station agent wrapped the pastry in a piece of newspaper and handed it to his customer.  The boy, a youngster of abgut twelve  ���������years of age, with a freckled face and  a pair of bright gray eyes, took his  "turnover" to thi aettee In the corner  of the waiting room and began to eat.  He had on a worn cldth cap with au  .attachment that could be pulled dowu  to cover the ears and a shabby overcoat of man's size, very much too  large for hi n. As he munched the  greasy crust and tbe thin layer of  "evaporated" appie he looked around  him with Interest.  The station ltse'f was like the average railway bui'. ling on Cape Cod.  Except for the "ign "Harniss" that  hung outside it might have been tlie  station at Wellmouth. which he had  seen so often. Battered settees  around the walls; lithographs of  steamers, time tables and year old  announcements of excursions and county fairs hung above them; big store  set in a box of sawdust���������all th������se  >were the regulation fixtures. Regulation also were thp "refreshments" on  coast ttf(i-'ye.<r.;*..;o when Ben's "Jai^  was lost. Maybe .vou remember? Well,  the boy was lei't at home that voyage  with Ben's ha'f brother. Sobn Nicker-  son. so's the youugster could go to  school. When his folks was drownded  that way the boy kept on iivln' with  Solou till 'bout three weeks ago Solon  "was took with pueumony and up and  died. Prissy and Tempy's the only relations there was. you see, so it was  left to them to say what should be  done with the boy. I cal'late there  must have been some high old pow-  wowln* In the old bouse, but the old'  ���������the counter at the side���������"turnovers" arranged cobhouse fashion under a glass  cover, with a dingy "Washington" pie  under another cover and jars of striped stick candy, with boxes of "jawbreakers" and similar sweetmeats between.  * It waB snowing hard, and ln the  'dusk of the winter evening the flakes  rustled against the windows as if un-  icteen old ladies In starched summer  gowns w Te shivering ln the storm and  .crowding to get u peep withta. The  lair in tbe shut waiting room smelled of  hot stove, sawdust, wet clothing and  JMr. Clark's cigar. To this collection  of perfumes was presently added the  odor of kerosene aB the station agent  lit the big lamps ln their brackets on  the wall.  From outside came the sounds of  creaking wheels and stamping horses,  'the staiuplug ui iffled by the snow  which covered the gro,.nd.  The door opeueii, and a big man with  a face of which gray whiskers and red  nose* were tbe most prominent features  came stumping uud pulling Into the  Iroom. He jerked off a pair of leather  igloves, playfully shook the congealed  'moisture from them down Mr. Clark's  neck Inside his collar, tossed a long  (whip into the coruer and, hold lag bin  spread fingers over the stove, began to  sing "Whoa, Kininnl" with enthusiasm.  Mr. Clark, being toe busy clawing tho  melting snow from . Is neck to opoii a  'conversation, Mr. Bodkin observed:  "Hello, Barney Kit all! Iio������v'������ thotrnv'l-  In'?  Have a rough time drlvln' over?"  "Oli, mlddiln', iiiiddllu'," replied tlio  driver of tho Orhani stago, unbuttoning his overcoat and reaching for his  .pipe, "but this earth's a vnlo of tours  anyhow, so what's the odds ho long's  you'ro happy.

Why, Prissy's been used to shooin'  every stray boy off tbe place as if he  was a ben."  Mr. Small laughed so heartily at this  that tbe others joined ln. When the  hilarity bad subsided tbe station agent  asked:  "When's tbe Nickerson boy comln*  over from Wellmouth?"  "Why, today, come to think of lt  He was to come up on tbe afternoon  train from Wellmouth and go to Orham witb me tonight You ain't seen  nothln'"-  Tbe station agent Interrupted him  wltb a sidelong movement of the bead.  "Hub?" queried Mr. Small. Tben he,  in company with Mr. Clark and Mr.  Bodkin, turned toward tbe corner of  tbe waiting room.  Tbo boy wbo bad bought the apple  "turnover," having finished tbe last  crumb of tbat viand, bad turned to the  window and was looking out through  a bole he bad scraped in Uio frost on  tbo pane. He had shaded bis face with  bis bands to shut out tbo lamplight,  and, though lio must have heard the  conversation, his manner betrayed no  Interest In it.  Mr. Small Interrogated the station  agent hy raising his eyobrows. The  agont whispered. "Shouldn't wonder."  and added, "Ho came on tho up train  this afternoon,"  "Hoy, boy," snid Mr. Clark, who novor lot consideration \for othor people  interforo with ills own curiosity,  "what's your nnnio?"  Tho boy turned from tho window  and, blinking n littlo as the light  struck IiIh eyes, faced the group by the  stove. His freckled cheeks glistened  as tbo light shone upon thom; but, ns  lf ho knew thin, ho pulled tho big  sleove of the overcoat across bis fuco  and rubbed them dry.

"She waa twenty-five mlnntes late  at Sandwich," snld the station agent,  "aod she's proiriy lost ten minutes or  so since. ffho'H H alonr in n little  while. HQW.T  But in Spite of this cheerfurpropfieoy  a full fifteen minutes passed before  the .'train, whioh had beon started, from  Boston with'"Hie vague iuea "TuuTsbme,  time or other it might get to Province-  town, came coughing aud pauting  round the curve and drew up at the  station platform. Only one passenger  got out at the Harniss station, and  he, stopping for a moment to" hand his  trunk check to the station agent, walked briskly iuto the waiting room and  slammed the door behind him.  "Hello!" he hailed, pulling off a buckskin glove and holding out a big hand  to the stage uriver. "Barney, how's  shebendin'?"  Mr. Small grinned and took tbe proffered hand.  "Well, for the land's sake. Ez Titcomb!" he exclaimed. "Where'd you  drop from? Thought you was some-  wberes off the coast between New  York and Portland jest 'bout now."  "(Jot shore leave for a fortrii't or so,"  said the newcomer, unbuttoning his  overeoat with a smart jerk and throwing it wide open, "Schooner sprung a  leak off Qay head hut trip, and she's  Hauled up at East Boston for repairs.  Dirty weather, ain't it? Hello, Lon!  How are you. Ike?"  Mr. Clark and his friend grinned and  responded, "How are you, Cap'n Ez?"  in unison.  The arrival was a short, thickset man  with a sunburned face, sharp eyes,  hair that was a reddish brown sprinkled with gray and a close clipped  mustache of the same color. He wore a  blue overcoat over a blue suit and held  a cigar firmly lu. oue corner of his  mouth. His movements were quick  and sharp and be snapped out bis sentences with vigor.  "Pull cargo tonight?" he asked of  Mr. Small, wbo was buttoning bis  overcoat and pulling on bis gloves.  "Pretty nigh au empty hold," was  the neply. "Only 'bout one and a ha'f  goin' over. You're the one, and the boy  here's the ha'f. All aboard! Come on,  Brad. You and the cap'n git inside,  while me and Dau git the dunnage on  tbe rack."  The boy picked up the carpet bag'and  followed Mr. Small out to the rear  platform of the station, where tbe  coach, an old fashioned, dingy vehicle,  drawn by four sleepy horses, stood  -waiting. __  Captain Titcomb followed, his oy������r-  coat flapping in the wind.  "Here, Barney." he observed, "have a  cigar to smoke ou the road. Have one.  Dan? Here. Lon; here's a couple for  you and Ike. Who's the little feller?"  be added in a whisper t> the station  agent ���������  "Ben Nlckerson's boy from Wellmouth. He's comin' down to Orham to  live witb tbe old maids. They've adopted him." (  "Tbe old maids? Not the old maids?  Not Prissy and Tempy?"  "Yup. All right, Barney; Pm comln'."  The station agent hurried away to  help tbe driver with the captain's sea  chest and Its owner, apparently overcome with astonishment, climbed mutely into the coach, where his fellow  passenger bud preceded him.  The old vehicle rocked and groaned  as the heavy chest was strapped on  the racks behind. Then it tipped again  ob Mr. Small climbed clumsily to tbe  driver's seat.  "All asliore that's goin' shore!" shouted Mr. Small. "So long, Dan. Git  dap, Two-forty!"  The whip crocked, the coach reeled  on its springs, and tbe whole equipage  disappeared In the snow and black  c<#s.  (To be Continued)  ,  "C.B." AT HOME.  Mustard Aids Digestion.

The Prime Minister has giwn a -series of special sittings for photographs to go with an intimate and  gossipy article ia a recent number  of The Pall-Kail Magazine, and has  in every wa? ju-stifitid the ��������� visitor's  assertion that he is good nature personified. Sir Henry's private sitting-  room at 10 Downing street, the room  where he does a great part of his  public vork, is on the floor above the  cabinet council room. It is a large  apartment, almost square in shape,  and with paneled walls, on which are  hung several fine portraits of former  Prime Ministers. Opposite the fireplace, and dominating the room, is  a large copy oJ Millais' splendid portrait of Mr. Gladstone. The dark and  well-remembered eyes are full of fire  and energy, as if the force that was  in him still energises this dark old  house, where he so often fought and  won.  Sir   Robert  Walpole.  Over the fireplace hangs a painting of Sir Robert Walpole, the first  Minister to be styled "Premier." That  large desk near the window is where  the- present Prime Minister transacts  a great part of his important affairs.  When he is not in attendance at the  House Of Commons, one may almost  be oertain of finding him here; the  only difficulty is gaining admission.  Of late, and in fact, since his bereavement, Sir Henry's medical advisers  insist on his sparing himself until his  health has improved. The doctors have  emphatically and explicitly urged on  him to refrain from all-night sittings  ���������those'terribly severe tests of physical endurance.  To a man recovering from an illness/ this private sitting-room of Sir  Henry'B, with its broad outlook on  St. James' Park, iB muoh m**re  health-giving than Che national debating chamber, with its turmoil,  heat and noise. I noticed one or two  fine French bureaux in this room,  belonging to the days of the early  Empire, and without any of the grotesque liberties taken in so much old  French furniture of that same period.  Where   Cromwell   Lived.  Sitting at his desk, the Prime Minister can look oufc of the window and  get a good view of the Horse Guards'  parade, while close at hand he sees  a bit of the ancient building of the  lord,high_tieasurer's house���������where, it  is recorded, Cromwell livedT Leading7  to this latter house there was once on  a time a gateway, now bricked up,  and in some mysterious way it also  gave,. access to the Thames. In the  protector's time the river would appear to have run much nearer Downing  street than it does now. Perhaps the  dryness of debate has had Bome influence there,'  The drawing-room communicates  with the sitting-room; but during her  stay in this historic .house Lady  Campbdll-Bannerman was too ill ever  to use it.  On the other side of the sitting-room  is a small private dining-room, used  by the Premier when alone. Beyond  this oak-paneled room lies the larger  and more stately dining-room, chiefly  utilized for state ceremonies and  those parties which the head of the  Government must needs give on royal  birthdays or great public occasions.  The oak floor and the oak wall paneling are both worthy of admiration,  and age has lent them a certain  beautv. One big picture hanging in  this huge dining-room is an immense  portrait of Pitt, placed over the mantelpiece,  **    L      ' * I 1 I.. '.

Water   Must   Be   Strained   Off  Immediately They  Are Cooked.  In cooking vegetables the chief  points to be aimed at may be summed  up as follows:  Greens, such as cauliflowers, sprouts,  cabbage, lettuce, spinach, etc.. should  lirst be soaked for fifteen minutes (not  inorei in salted water.  They should tben be blanched���������t e.,  thrown into a saucepan of boiling  water and boiled rapidly for two minutes.  After straining again the greens  should be replunged Into a fresh sauce-  pun of boiliug water in which a small  piece of soda or half a teaspoonful 0/  carbonate of soda has been dissolve!*  While boiling the pot should uever  be covered.  Overcooking, although It may not  render the vegetables indigestible,  makes them quite as unpalatable.  ' When ct*>ked the water should be  strained away at once and tbe vegetables, until it is required to serve  them, should never be allowed to  staud In tbe pan at the corner of the  stove.  The straining should be thorough,  every drop of moisture if possible being pressed out  After this ls accomplished a small  piece of butter or a spoonful of cream  is invariably added by an experienced  chef, while salt, pepper, a squeeze ol  lemon Juice and often a little strong  stock are considered a necessary addi  tion in France.  It is a fact which usually escapes the  notice of the housekeeper that the  average cook commits more unileces  6ary extravagances In the cooking of  vegetables than In the case of auy other item. In France no one would think  of. throwing away the water in which  the legumes are prepared. This is always regarded as stock and is used as  the foundation of "maigre" soups ot  utilized to give an extra flavor in cooking other vegetables.  Tried to Steal a Crown.

Owing  to the stagnancy of business just at  present he will willingly give you one  free of cost just to make room in bis  overcrowded shop. Then take the  wheels from some one's wagon or private surrey and fasten them to tho  tub. making sure that the axles are  strong enough to hold a large family.  After this has been done go to' tbe  butcher and purchase four large bolognas. Put a bole in each end, and  through one of the'holes blow severely  until you have blown all the meat out  of the hole at the other end. When  the skin is entirely meatless, blow up  the skin with a bicycle pump and  fasten on to the tires of the wheels.  After this go down cellar and take  the works out of a gas meter and  fasten to tbe axles ^holding the wheels.  As a gas meter keeps on going around  whether you are burning gas or not,  you will see at once that it will keep  right on going when attached to the  axles, causing the axles to revolve and  thus'making the vehicle go along automatically.  Put a few chairs in the tub and purchase a tin born': at a novelty store.  Great care must be exercised in oue  thing, however���������be sure ia piece of soap  has not been left in the bathtub.

How Frost Affects Plants.  Plants do not freeze to death in winter, but perish from thirst Tbe process ts simple. The cold causes the  withdrawal of tbe water from the cells  of the plant forming ice crystals outside of the cells. The frost cooling  and contracting the surface, acts as a  sort of pump, and as soon as the cell  Is emptied of its life giving fluid the  plant dies.

Hu has been extremely careful to guard tho finances  of the city and this year when a  new election occurs the new board  wiil probably have a small bank account to start on.  We do hot know what the present  mayor's intentions are to a fourth  term, neither does it matter much  to us, but so much can be said, it  will bo hard to get a man capable  of taking his place should he decide  to retire to the simple life at the  end of the Municipal year.  There are many misunderstandings  about this question of debtor and  creditor. The real creditors in this  country of ours are those who . pay  their bills weekly or monthly and  put a few dollars in the bank for  the traditional  "rainy d������iy."  Tn our*savings. banks there are today on doposit twelve billions of dollars, placed there by ten millions of  our fellow citizens. These are the  real creditors. Let these call for  their money and the business of the  country will. go to smash in a day���������  ���������yes,���������in-an���������hour,-���������.When-a��������� few���������������=_a-  mere handful���������of these depositors  take a notion that they want their  money and want it at once, there  happens what we call a run on the  bank. And a mighty serious thing  it may be for the bank involved,  too. Make this idea general and we  have what wo call a panic. Make it  widely general and we have the financial view for ninety-nine out ot  over" hundred wage-earners, merchant and Capitalist,���������Ex.  There are evidently some woll-in-  tentionod people who think that the  tone and usefulness of the papers  might be greatly improved if moro  attention wore devoted to tho common places of lifo and less to do  with "news."  Tho complaint, is hoard that when  a man or a woman goos wrong in a  community, the fact is spread out on  tho front pago in scare headlines that  cannot fail to attract, even from a  distance; but nothing is said about  the thousand and one men and women who do right day aftor day.  Tho intentions of thoso pooplo are  all right, no doubt, but thoy forgot  that it is the business of newspapers  to print nows or what tho oditor  dooms news, and tho fact that tho"  majority of mon aro honest, and  noarly 'all women aro good, is no  nows. It is, fortunately, such a commonplace thing that it is taken for  granted.  ' 'IJortidos, it is vory quostionabio if  tho ideal newspaper, as some pooplo  concoivo it, and most pooplo know  what nn idoal nowspapor is hotter  thnn tho publisher, would bo vory  satisfactory in tho end, Just Imagine what tho publication of such  Items as those would moan:  "John Smith wont on an excursion  yoatorday and returned homo sober."  "William Jones, manager of tlio  National Hank, Is to bo.congratulated on tho fact thpt, ho has not boon  arrested for fraud,"  "Mrs E, ForklnH Smith-Jones gavo  a vory smart tea yesterday a ftor-  noon, and although thero was a largo  attendance of Indies of tho host sot,  nobody's character was hopolosaly  destroyod."

Of course the psychologists have explanations for them all, but there  an? lots of things that happen that  somehow do uot respond readily to  these so called explanations of "purely  mental effect" or "accidental coincidences" and all that sort of thing.  When Muie. Carnot, widow of Sadl  Caruot, died uud her will was read, a  clause lu It caused cbuside.-abie comment. This was to the effect that a  certain small Hindoo idol carved from  a hard stoue which would be found  ���������nionjj her property must be taken out  and crushed until completely destroyed. Many marveled at this apparently  singular request, for the idol seemed  a harmless, ugly little thing, but her  " instructions were carried out to the  letter.  The Idol had been presented to Sadi  Carnot   years   before   Le   Aad   ever  thought of the presidency of France  by a friend who hud brought it from  3ndia.     Later  he   learned  that  there  ���������was a legend attached to it which asserted that whosoever wouid retain it  ia  his  possession   would  rise  to the  Jullest height of power in his chosen  profession, but die of a stab wound  when at the zenith of his career.   Carnot traced the history of the idol and  found thatr for 500 years the  rulers  *who  had   possessed  it  had  all  died  either in battle or by assassination of  ���������stab wounds.    Yet he laughed at the  Sstory, called the facts adduced by his  search a  mere chain of coincidences  ,'aud retained the idol.    He died by a  dagger in the hands of au assassin;  ijieaee* Mme. Caruot's strange request.  .'']  Iq Chicago a pawnbroker has a queer  looking old turnip, of a watch that he  ���������_i3EtU_nalLgell and will not wear, for he  i&nows its history.   He bought it at a"  :  !*ale of accumulated  police property,  and after the sale as a warning one of  the police officials related three "coincidences" In connection with it   The  "���������first'.Chicago mun to own the watch,  so far as the police knew, had been  killed by a burglar, and the watch was  ������ne of tlie few things the thief got  ���������way with.    A  few weeks later the  Ifcurglar, with a party of his pals, pur-  Isued. liy tUe police for another crime,  r-toufc nefi\i������e' tu a house on the outskirts  *iof tba- city and sought to bold tlie offl-  -'���������cers at bay.   All were taken alive ex-  ' tfept the burglar, and he was shot dead.  ' The watch was found on his body.   It  ^'���������was around the detective bureau for a  Y'iong time, and one day ouo of tho  ^Jorce asked permission to take it bome  to> a**m some friends, bis description  :%*,  fts "quaint,  out-lous''case havlug  aroused their curiosity.   On his way  ***W* to report that nigljt, witb the  watefc in bis possession, lie was shot  etead by a crook who bad a long stand-  tug grudge against bim.  I'be pawnbroker put the watch in  ihls showcase, but purely as an ornament, and made such investigation re-  Igarding Its history ns be could. He  ;3tearned tbat it hnd boon made In  il'rance more than a hundred years  ago, and flvo men who hnd worn it hnd  ���������Mod Yiolent deaths, Yet these were  all coincidences, and the curse of thp  !old woman from whoso hands it had  keen snatched by a thief in Bordeaux,  shortly nfter It left Its maker's hands  Jind nothing to do with tho caso whatever.  , In tho South Kensington museum,  'London, thoro is an objojet catalogued  22,450.

Te Fat Mul, .a Chinese woman of  Hongkong, has received a modal for  bravery displayed during the great typhoon. She is the ouly woman who  has ever been decorated for sigual  bravery in tbe history of the colony  and probably the only Chinese woman  who holds a medal of honor presented  by foreigners.  Te Pat Mui won the medal simply  through not losing ber head wben in  danger. She was on the water front  when the storm broke, and she saw her  house swept away by the waves that  drove in from tbe outer harbor.

King Edward's Perquisites.  Among the most curious of his Majesty's perquisites is his right to every  whale or sturgeon captured on thv  coast of the United Kingdom and  brought to land. Both of these perquisites tfate back to tbe dayu of. th������  Norman Kings', and it appears that  in the case of the whale the monsters  wero divided between the Sovereign  ana his consort, tho Queen taking the  head In order that her wardrobe  might be replenished with the whalebone needed for the stiffening of her  royal garments.  Another of. the King's perquisites  Is a certain number of magnificent  cashmere shawls, which are despatched to him every year from the kingdom of Cashmere. They vary in value,  as a rule, from ������00 to ������250 apiece.  Another class of royal purveyor is  called upon to present annually a  tablecloth, while from other sources  again ho is entitled to an annual contribution of such varied "tips" aa  white doves, white hares, currycombs,  fire tongs, scarlet hosiery, nightcaps,  knives, lances and crossbows. Moreover, at the coronation, the Lord of  the Manor ol Addlngton must pro-  sent to the Sovereign a "dish of pottage" composed of "almond inila,  brawn of capons, sugar, apices, chickens parboiled and chopped," At the  same coreinony the Lord of the Manor  of Hnydon is obliged by virtue of  his tonuro from tho Crown to pro-  Bent tho monarch with a towol, tho  Lord of the Manor of Worksop giving the Sovereign ft "right-handed  glove. Those are only a fow of the  various perquisites to which King  Edward is entitled by tradition and  UMgO,  Women'Not   Improving.  Mr. Plowden, the Marylebone magistrate of London, has come to the  melancholy conclusion that woman ig  changing for the worse. He drew attention to the metamorphosis in a  ���������nrilnnf speech in his court, suggested by an assault case in which a  woman took part.  A certain class ot case which ������am<*  before him constantly, he said, suggested that women's nature was un  dergoing very considerable modifica  tions in the twentieth century.  The gentleness and spirit of dependence and the *'p\veet reasonableness*'  that used to distinguish the sex were  (riving place to a love of advertise  ment and a taste for unseemly scenes-  of  rowdyism  and  violence.  Tlie doves were changing into eaples  Kven the hatpin, designed for such  innocent purposes, was becoming, in  the hands of women, as much a weapon of danger as the stiletto or the  revolver.  These  chances  in   the   nature   of  women were forced upon his attention  by what was constantly occu^-���������  tbe police courts.  Burro Driver* Carry Candle*.  Tn Mexico all vehicles, be they band-  cart, automobile or anything between,  must carry a light at night This rvi%  or law is rigidly enforced.

ECZEMA'S ITCH  IS NEVER ENDING  Except By Active and Persistent Treatment With the  Great Eczema Cure,  Dr. Chase's Ointment  When left to itself, eczema runs on  indefinitely, causing keen distress  from itching and covering the body  with sores that refuse to heal. i  Even with careful treatment, <-c-'  zema is obstinate in yielding to curative measuns, but the regular and  persistent use of Dr. Chase's Ointment- is the most certain means of  overcoming this torturing disease.      t  Internal treatments for eczema  have long since been discarded, except the use of medicines to regulate  the bowels and enrich the blood,  while local'applications are used to  relieve the itching and heal the sores.  It is the remarkable success of Dr.  Chase's Ointment in the cure of eczema which has given it world-wido  recognition as the standard ointment  for itching skin diseases.  Mrs. Robert Clendenning, Welland  Station, Ont., writes: i  "For   three   years   my   daughter,'  Fanny, was afflicted with eczema in  an intense and persistent form, and  for nine days she was totally blind.  The burning, itching and disfigurement were horrible, her entire face  being completely raw for months,  and the distress so great that sho  could not sleep.  "The best efforts of two eminent  physicians failed to even mitigate  her awful suffering. One day wheu  I was low-spirited over m.v daughter's condition Dr. Chase's Ointment  was recommended to me, and to our  surprise Fanny was helped with the  first box and she has since been entirely cured by this treatment.  "Her face is now as smooth as a  baby's and she ia in splendid health.  The credit for this cure is entirely  due to Dr. Chase's Ointment, and I  cheerfully give .vou permission to  state my daughter's case, hoping that  it will lead many others to secure  the same good results."

British Naval' Supremacy.  The New York Post, speaking of  British naval supremacy, says: The  British Admiralty is not satisfied with  its recent extraordinary development  of the torpedo boat-destroyer. Tn  1393 its largest boat of this type was  the Havoc, of 240 tons, 3J500 horsepower, and 261-2 knots. Five 61 ihe  boats authorized in J905-C are now  tatti'ng the waler, the Ghurka and Af-  ridi having recently been launched.  These boats are of 790 tons, 14.500  horsepower, and huve a speed ox 33  knots, three more than any of the destroyers owned by Germany, France  or the United States, and are 200 tons  larger than the largest foreign boat.  Not content with this leadership, the  Admiralty has laid down at Birkenhead the Swift, a destroyer of 1.830  tons, 30,000 horsepower, with the phenomenal speed of no less than 36  knots an hour. The Swift is to be an  ocean-cruising boat, with a great  radius of action; and having the pace  to ovorhaul any torpedo boat or destroyer, cruiser or battleship will truly becomo "the eyes and ears of the  fieet." But tho Ghurka and tho Swift  have high freeboards and are comfortable and livable vessels, inctend of  raoing machines, which utterly exhaust *ho\*- crews In u few days. Tt  Is now apparent that in the eyos of  the Admiralty tho torpedo cruisor nnd  torpedo gunboat are failures, the for-  mor because its scouting powers were  sacrificed to its armament and the  latter because it wns neither a scout  nor a destroyer. Only throe 13-pound-  ors will be curried by the Gnurka,  and four 25-pouudors by the Swift. A  clearer example of the way tho BHt-  ish Admiralty leads the wnole world  tn nnval construction nnd development it would be hard to find. Kvory  othor country is an imitator, and at  that from three tn five years* behind.

Making Whale Leather  The Newfoundland fisherman have  been attempting to make whale leather a commercial product, and are  said to be meeting with some success. The average whale hide covers  a surface of about 1.5(H) square feet.  A square foot of the hide weighs from  two to five ounces and is priced as  high as 50 cents. The leather is ui-  usually tough and is said to ba������-3  great wearing qualities, *��������� and may  therefore be adapted to the covering  of furniture, buggy tops and seats,  and also automobile uses. It is a'.no  said that h can be used for boats  and shoes. Leather madt- from the  intestines of the whale resembles kid.  and is thin and tough.

In Bird Society  A SOCIAL GATHERING OF FEATHERED FOLKS.  SOCIETY among birds! Yes, indeed.  For only a short time, it is true,  but along toward the end of July  and the beginning of August is moulting time, when, you know, the birds  change their feathers. It doesn't take  Jong for the old ones to fa}) out and the  new ones to come In, but when this  happens birdie can't fly very well,  so he seeks a quiet place, and there  enjoys himself with his friends.  These social gatherings are never  noisy, for they don't sing during moulting time, but you can see the old fellows giving the youngsters good advice  and the mothers in their chiroy gossip.  Miss Redbreast was such a nice little  bird that Mrs. l.obin wished very much  to have her as a bride for her son,  Johnny. Happily, Mrs. Robin had arranged a little party, and all the Redbreasts were invited.  The Laying of a Good  Foundation  THE wise man about, to build himself a home will see that his  foundations are the best to be  had for his money, even if he has to  eonomize on the superstructure. The  really skilled   embroiderer   is   equally  t  careful about her foundations.  Every stitch put on una preliminary  work pays many times over. It really  does not take much extra time to pad  one's scallops and flower petals, yet it  makes a surprising difference In the appearance of the finished work.  Many workers are eager to begin  what tney call the embroidery at once,  not realizing that the underlaying is  quite as important as the covering  stitches. Nor is this merely so as regards looks. No embroidery launders  well that ls not firmly padded,' It holds  the material in place and prevents it  from pulling when washed.  Almost all padding should be run  lengthwise of the design, as the covering is usually done across it As good  a way as any to pad is to run the edges  of a scallop or flower and fill up the  centre with chain stitches, or the whole  thing can be chaln-stltched. This stitch  fills in very rapidly and gives tht requisite smoothness without which no  satin stitch ever looks well.  Ordinary darning cotton makes a very  good Ailing.   If the work ls to be very  much  raised,  more strands should be  used, or the stitches can be put ln sev-  , eral layers,  making lt slightly higher  ������������������- -������o centra. ^ .  A jolly good time they were having.  Miss Redbreast and young Mr. Robin  seemed to like each other very much.  Their mothers were delighted.  "Let's take a little walk," said Mr.  Robin.  Miss Redbreast thought that would  be nice, so they hopped down under a  cool   green hedee.  When they talked together quite a  while Mr. Robin asked Miss Redbreast  if she didn't think she would like to  become Mrs. Robin.  She drooped her head daintily and  chirped, ever so low, that she thought  perhaps she would.  Why naughty Tabby should have been  lurking near the hedge no one knows,  but just as Mr. Robin was about to  chirrup joyously she made a spring for  little Miss Redbreast.  Mr. Robin saw Tabby leap. In a moment he had darted straight for her  eyes.  . Miss Redbreast got away in safety,  but brave Johnny Robin vtrns killed.  Great was the grief among the Rob-  Ins and Redbreasts. Needless to say,  they went into society no more that  year. :������������������.���������  The Game of Castle King  AK_AMUSlNCklganie_to_play_.is_as  follows:  '    Choose   your   King    by    some  counting-out   rhyme.

Joe nodded assent. "Yes," said he;  "here we've spent a whole week of our  vacation on the coast and haven't ever  teen much further than a stone's throw  Irom the shore. There's not the sign of  a squall so I think we can risk a good  long row."  The water was smooth and they made  good headway. After rowing fpr an  hour, Jim suggested that they rest on  their oars and have something to eat.  Their lunch was not yet finished and  the boat was idly drifting along when  there was a sudden rush of water as a  wicked monster crashed into the boat,  piercing the side with a long, saw-like,  tony projection,  "It's a sawfish!" yelled Joe. "We've  got to beat the rascal oft or he'll sink  the boat!"  A PERILOUS SITUATION.  Finding itself unable to gain its freedom, the sawfish turned and swam toward the shore, towing the boat with it.  It kept right on its course until the  boat grounded on the beach. Several  men were watching, with great surprise, the Boat come rapidly toward  them, and they now helped in dragging  the boat and flsh up the beach.  The sawfish when measured proved to  be a monster, indeed, and you may be  sure that Jim and Joe were prou-' "t  their strange catch.  He Knew.

He is then assailed by the other players, every one struggling to capture his  place  of  eminence���������and he  must   try,  alone, to maintain it.  Fair pulls and pushes are allowed, but  no clothes must be pulled, under penalty of being setviside as prisoner of  war, whlch-really seans expulsion from  the game.  Sometimes the I In- is permitted to  have an assistant or ally, who, however,  does nothing but stand by and see that  there Is fair play. It is his duty to capture any one who breaks this rule.  Of course, ere long the king is bound  to be overcome by some strong assailant, who anally wins the coveted place,  and the flrst king has to retire to the  ranks and fight for the place lf he wishes to recover it. , en  This game is called Castle King,  Tapir as a Pet  H  E IS a funny-looking animal; isn't he, to have for a pet?

Legend of the Stork     '���������  THERE was once a sultan of Turkey  who gathered around htm as his  counselors all the wise men of his  dominions. The sultan himself was very  wise,, but he could not help playing  jokes upon the dignified advisers.  For several months the sultan had  enjoyed not a single trick. He began  to fear that he would soon be growing  dull unless something happened to  amuse him.  That day he directed his slaves to  thoroughly oil the broad steps that led  to the palace. He then sent word to all  his  counselors  that  he  wished  to  see  (     The Magic Bridge  MERE is a game known as Magic  V"T Bridge. All the children join hands  and form a ring.

Some one will'kindly-'play'at "the piano���������any lively march or dance, to  which the children can keep merry step,  singing as they go.

Immediately the eight children who  receive'the signal raise their joined  hands���������two for each bridge, four bridges  altogether; and all the other children  pass under the bridges, dancing or  marching to the music.  -Then the leader gives the signal for  the bridges to be demolished. The circle  forms again as at flrst.
