POLITICALMEETINGS  Meetings were held last week at  Union Bay, on Thursday- -evening,  Cumberland Friday, and Courtenay  Saturday, and on Monday after-  noon at Denman Isiund. Mr  Blakemore was accorded a splendid  reception at all these places, and  the tone of the meetings was decidedly : Conaorvative, Mr Bennett  charged Mr Blakemore with being  hostile to the School syi-uem, and  this allegation wit-s utterly refuted  by the latter in hia remarks. At  Cumberland, the same Liberal ar-  utneiitsiy e.-e followed by Mr Bennett, who dwelt at come length on  the Kaieu Island grant. This, by  the way. has long been dropped by  the leaders'ot; the party as abortive,  aud it is surprising that Mr" Bennett continues to waste valuable  time on ii.

Young Billy's n daisy, you   bet i  His high roll**, in Yukon, wero a  terror to look on,  which Sir Wilfred can never forget  Socialism.  Oonservatism  and LitoralM.  It is regrettable that the cause of  Socialism is not sumViunily strong  in this district to have warranted  the placing of a candidate in the  Bold lo contest ibis neat at the  coming election. It is too late to  pass vain regrets in so far as that  Id concerned, but 11 U uot aunts to  discuss the relationship of the two  leading parties 10 one another and  wherein both differ essentially from  Socialism.  The record of Socialist members  of the late Legislature shows a. continual struggle during the whole of  each session to fight bills through  wbiob would ameliorate the condition of the labor classes. The  Liberal press and vmany of the  Liberal candidates have eurpasKed  the previous recoid of any parly  in their mud slinging pro pen Hi-  ties against tho Soeialists. Let  us see if the latter have merited the*?e attacks. In aU ages reformers who have endeavored to  introduce measured whic/i would be  the means oi bettering the conditions of the working clauses have  been persecuted, maligned and  black-guarded, Uieir work and influence belittled by unscrupulous  slanderers, who, by appealing to the  prejudices and credulity .of the  people endeavored to misconstrue  their motives as having emanated  trom the basest feeling-. It is in  this light that thu Liberal party  and press.as a wholo are-showing  up at'the present time, re.orting to  methods which are bound to destroy their influence- and prestige for  Lir dealing. Is,it because the-=e  -meti-tJi-t-im-uidi -viU-uul s-w-ho-r-uu-the-  party.,press think or.know that 'the  belief.-.' or theories o'i"Socialists if  put -iul������ praoike would be ���������subversive to the"be'-H intereatfiof the  people in* general ? ��������� Tbey are well  aware thai no governing system  would bring greater general prosperity, but. ihey try 10 convince  themselves it is Utopian��������� and when  our istlfi'ih interest"*, are al stake it  is easy tu do so���������i\*rgoMiug that ' at  the beginning everything is seemingly Uiopian or visionary whioh  offers social aujoloriaiion.  The word Liberal as applied to  that pariv appuuis to ar.iuy people  a:-equivul-hnLtoprogres6iveiiec*ii,aiid  all that it implies, forgetting ihat it  is the principles of the party which  bhould be cunsiueied, Conserva-  1 ism to oilier* means ibe limiting  uf the. governing power-) 10 privileged individuals and the encouraging  of mcuopolies at tho cxponne of the  people. It can easily be shown that  these ideas regarding these parties  are erroneous et-pccially with reference to that of the former, ae the  record of each proves, when examined in contkcikm wiih many of  ihe bills and amendmenta introduced in the late Legislature.

CHAPTER XX.  It was rather a new experience to  Nova to find herself one of the many  young girls stitching away, for a few  paltry shillings per day, in one of  the largest dress emporiums of the  great metropolis. She had secured  lodgings with her only friend.  At the end of the third day an  event happened which changed tho  whole course of her life,  A beautiful mauve-gray traveling  dress had been brought up from the  work-room, and the forewoman had  handed it to Neva for a few extra  stitches here and there which appeared to have been overlooked.  "The young lady who ia to wear  this is very particular," she remarked; "and as Miss Olive Kneeland is a good customer, we are anxious to pleuse her."  Olive Kneeland���������how strangely  sweet the name sounded to Neva! It  puzzled her, too, for it almost seemed to her as though she had heard it  before, somewhere. And as her fingers 'flew deftly over the fine, -, soft  gray frills, she fell to wondering what  this Miss Kneeland, who was so soon  to be a happy bride, was like.  Was she tall, slight, aud dark, or  was she fair? Would her wedded lifo  be sunshine or would it be stormy  and unhappy?  While she was wondering, there was  a flutter in the work-room. The forewoman came to her, hurriedly exclaiming, "Here is Miss Kneeland  now: You must give me the traveling-dress at once."  Neva involuntarily dropped her  work, and glanced up. Miss Kneeland was standing but a few feet distant, regarding her with interested  eyes, probably because Neva was  busy with hijr^Tr^elln^arSgsT'���������'���������-  "How beautiful she is, but how  proud and cold looking!" thought  Neva, as she beheld the tall, slim,  haughty young girl standing there in  tho sunlight, its bright rays glinting  her brown hair and changing it into  gold. But her eyes attracted Neva  most; they were so large, so blue, so  wonderfully expressive.  Sho spoke a few words to the forewoman, then turned with a very  graceful bow and left'tho room.  Olivo Ivneelaiid! Where had Neva  heard that name before? For an  hour or more sho pondered over it,  then suddenly it came to hor Uist  where. The work sho was doing fell  from her hands, and a great sobbing  cry broke from her lips. Groat Heaven! she remembered! She hud heard  that name upon tlio lips of the handsome- young husband who had wedded, then deserted her!  When she had asked him tho question if ho had over loved any one  beforo he loved hor, he had' answered:  "Yes, I did love a young girl boforo I mot you, but sho wns so cold  and proud that she froze my lovo,"  Whon sho had asked her namo ho  had hesitated an instant, thon answered, slowly, "Olivo'Kneeland."  Tho shock was so great it almost  killed Nova. At thut moment one of  tho girls, who wan standing at the  window, called suddenly to hm* companions,  "Miss Kneeland '��������������� Just about to  enter hor carriage," sho said. "Hor  iHitrothod is with hor. Como, girls,  and see what a handsome fellow he  is, Why, I positively onvy hor, lie Is  ho devoted to her. Yos, I predict for  Miss Kneeland a happy Jifo whim sho  Is Mr, Itoger.dlondonning's wifo, ilo  fairly idoIls.es her. Ah, mo! how  sweet it is to be loved! Come, girls,  and boo ahem drlvo off."  AU tho girls rumhed to tho window,  Neva never know how sho reached It,  It seetnod to her that tho room wns  whirling around her, and the voiced  of hor companions sounded far ott,  like the voices ono hears in dreams,  Hhe pressed her whito face close to  the window-pane and looked down.  Ah I surely her ears had not docclvod  her, They had uttered the no rite  Roger Glendenning. Was sho mud or  dreaming? Ah. angels in heaven, be  pitiful I It was hel It was a wonder sho did not fall dead then and  thi-vr.-.

Hhe seemed as though turned to  stono,'her fnco glued tn the window-  pnno, nnd her eyon riveted on the eyes  glancing up laughingly into her own.  H was no di'i-tin., no illusion. Of  All tho fuel's the world h<*lil, hint  would know that ono. Ilo hnd pnrt-  td from bi*r with I'lin-Hycs (in.I t*n-  denring words, and once out of  ftifc'hf, nli*' *vjin out nt mind.

Ah. pitying God! in spite of all his  neglect, sne loved him still,  "Come 'r'-vay from the window,  miss, and attend to your work," the  forewoman called out sharply to  Neva. But the girl did not hear���������her  thoughts had followed her heart���������  they were with tho two whirling  down the avenue.  "He is going to marry Miss Kneeland!" The words rang through her  brain like a funeral knell. Sho clutched her hands tightly over her heart.  Uoxv could he marry the beautiful  Miss Kneeland, when he was already  wedded to her? A man could have  but one wifo.  The forewoman crossed over to the  window and shook the girl angrily by  the shoulder, exclaiming: "Why arc  you not at your work? You are not  paid to loiter here, and we so busy.  You must attend to your business if  you want us to keep you here."  Neva turned slowly toward her.  She did not even comprehend what  she was saying, her brain was so  confused. When the woman caught  sight of the death-white face sho  started back with a little cry.  "Are you ill, miss?" sho asked, anxiously.  "111!" Neva" laughed aloud, the  most horrible and yet the most piti-  J- ful laugh that over fell from mortal  lips. "I am so ill that I wish death  would come to me and set me freo  from this awful pain!" she moaned,  clutching her hands still closer over  her throbbing heart. t  The woman took the work from  her hands.  "You are not able to finish Miss  Kneeland's traveling-dress," she said.  "I will give it to some one else to  do, as it must be finished immediately. She is to be married to-night or  tr6*-**^TrowT"I"ha^^^  what the date is. She is a very happy girl," went on. the forewoman,  volubly and thoughtlessly, "for he is  marrying her for love; and when one  marries for love, the world is heaven  to them."  Whiter and whiter grew Neva's  face. She never heard the last word,  for while it was on the woman's  lips her hands had dropped listlessly  to her side, her head drooped on  her chest, she swayed to and fro for  an instant, then, without a moan or  a cry, fell senseless at tho woman's  feet.  When hor eyes unclosed, and consciousness began to reassert itself,  sho found herself on the back porch  of tho emporium, ..whoro they had carried hor. A little girl stood by hor  side, alternately fanning hor and  holding a glass of ice-water to hor  parched lips. In an instant tho events  through which sho hnd just passed  recurred to her, and tho littlo girl  standing beside hor grow frightenud  to seo hor bury hor faco in her hands  and weep violently,  "I think I will leave you now tlmt  you havo come to," said tho girl,  "for I must make haste to carry Migtj  Ivnooland's dross to hor."  noon; race; you v<vouid nol"*wanc to  crush a young girl's heart, wreck he*  future, make life a burden for her.  You are beautiful as a dream; you  are rich. .1 can not wonder that any  one should love you; but, ah, me! ah,  me! I wish to Heaven you had never  been born!" And here Neva gave  way to hysterical weeping.  "JH.v good girl," exclaimed Miss  Kneeland, greatly shocked and bewildered, "I have not the least idea  what you are trying to get at. Be  so kind as to tell me what you want  of me. I am very, very busy today, and can illy spare the time that  I am giving vou now."  "Yes, I ���������ivill" tell you," moaned  Neva, ..wringing her hands, "and let  my every word b������ a prayer to you.  They tell nie that you���������you���������love  Hoger"Glendenning, dear lady; but,  oh! you must, not love him���������you must  not marry him���������for he is nil I have  in the world! if you take him from  me 1 shall die! and���������and my spirit  would hmint you so, night ami day,  that you would never find a moment's  peace or'happiness'; with him."  ��������� *       .a  (To he continues.)

When, however,  these vessels get to work, the Atlantic  passage ought to he out down to Ave  days, for under the agreement with the  British Government they are to be capable of maintaining a minimum average speed of from 24 to 25 knots per  hour in moderate weather.

As every  uhip launched is bound to be wrecked,  iirery theater to be burned, the finis of  the book is its reduction to ashes.  What became of the Alexandrian library? Did the Saracens burn it in  640? There is this question asked:  Was there any library at Alexandria  containing TOO.noo books? Gibbon inclines to the opinion that there was no  such library. Canon Taylor insists that  If there had beeu ti library It was burned in the time of Julius Caesar. Tradition seems to I udioate, however, that  there was a library in tbe serapeum,  by no means a large collection, but  whether destroyed by Tbeophilus or  Theodosius Is not known. It looks as  if the charge brought against the Arabs  rested on no foundation. Explorations  of Alexandria iu 1.S95-IK? show no traces  of the serapeum. The seaport of Egypt  was built on a damp foundation, and  granting that there wns a library, if  not destroped by fire, then the papyri  might have suffered from decay due to  water.

Robin-aon Crn-iof*,  The second volume of "Robinson  Crusoe," by Daniel De Fot-, published on  Aug. 20, 1719, was tbe first sttry published in England with Illustrations.  The Illustrations consisted of a map  of the world, in which the different  voyages of the hero of the tale were  delineated. The flrst volume of "Robinson Crusoe" was published In April,  1719, and became popular at once. A  second edition was printed seventeen  days after the first, twenty-five days  later another followed, and a fourth  was published on Aug. 8 of the same  year. On Aug. 20 the second volume  was issued; under the title of "The  Further Adventures of Robinson Crusoe; being the second and last part of  his life and of the strange, surprising  account of his travels round three  parts of the globe. Written by himself. To which isadded a map of .the-  world, In which is delineated the voyage of Robinson Crusoe."  Have You Insured Your Skin?  A 'North-West farmer died recently  from blood poisoning   following   the  prick of a rusty nail.   A tin tack on  which he trod, penetrated a Chicago  boy's toe, and he   died   later   from  lock-jaw.     Both these deaths could  have been averted if a box of Zam-  Buk had been handy.   The air is full  of   poisonous   germs   and   microbes  which settle'   on   wounds   and���������and  j what? ,  If left to go their own way  t they set up festering, suppuration and  j frequently blood poison.   If Zam-Buk  * is   applied  these  harmful germs are  killed and the wound is healed.  One of the greatest living chemists  has proved that Zam-Buk has more  power to kill harmful microbes in  wounds than crude carbolic acid, and  does it painlessly. A little Zam-Buk  appled to a cut, a sore, a burn or a  bruise which breaks the skin, prevents the wound from taking the  wrong turn, and speedily heals it.  Mrs. Bright, of Johnstone,, N. B.,  says: "I got mv finger poisoned by  the prick from a needle, and as it got  very bad I applied some old fashioned  remedies. It continued .to'get worse,  and I then tried Zam-Buk. This both  cleaned the wound and healed it and  soon all trace of the injury was gone."  In cases of cuts, burns, bruises and"  other injuries Zam-Buk is the best  "insurance." It is equally good for  eczema, chronic ulceration, ringworm,  scaling sores, abscesses, inflamed  patches, running sores, bad leg, old"  wounds, etc. Also for chapped hands.

Somewhere, about the west they chanced oo  a village where a meeting had been  convened In relation to a county council election. Violence appeared to have  been expected by the authorities, and  drafts pof the Royal Irish Constabulary  had descended on the spot, like blessed .manna "from' the heavens for those  that "hungered after peace. Oe-rtaln  flery speakers from the United Irish  League were to harangue the populace  against the Saxon g-arrison, detested  for what It does to Erin, though Erin,  ls not so green as Erin makes ont.

My legs  became so stiff that in order to move  at all I had to use crutches. Finally  the doctors decided that I was incurable, antl told me they could render  no further assistance. I continued.to  suffer day land night, and then came  the turning point of my life. A friend  from a distance came to see me and  it was from'him I learned that Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills ��������� were ' a great  cure for rheumatism. At onco I got  a supply and began to use them. The  flrst indication that they were helping me was when the pain grew less  severe. In a few weeks more the  swelling in my legs and hips began  to leave, then my joints seemed to  loosen up, and then it was hot long  until my crutches were thrown aside  and I could straighten up; Then I  began to go outdoors and soon was  able to resume my work as woll as  ever, Since that time i have never  been troubled with .rheumatism or  lame back, I can tell you my neighbors wore all astonished at my cure;  thoy all thought I would always bo a  cripple."

Volgarlty   ia   certainly   commoner  among men tban Among women, and,  indeed, when a woman Is vulgar she  is apt to display the quality In blgQ  perfection.  The reason why it ia rare  among women is thai the emotional  nature Is stronger among women thai)  Among men, and thus where men are  ambitious, fond of displaying power,  anxious to carry out designs, desirous  ot recognition, women are sympathetic,  tender, affectionate, subtle; tbey value  relations with others moro, than performances, they encourage and console,  because tbey are interested in tbe person wbo desires sympathy more tban .  in tbe aims wbicb bo nourishes.   If j  one's main interest ln lifo, is Ih the  pecsoualitiea that em-round one, one is  not likely to be tempted by vulgarity,  because tlio essence, again, of vulgarity is tbat it tends to affix an alto*  "getlier   flctitious   value   to   mdterlaT  things.

Tho history of Ireland goes  back to Coneirie Mor, or Con i,lr/ the  Great, who UO years before Christ ruled as high king over thc clans of the  Gaels of Ireland at Tare. Prom thit  Conalry tho Groat, the historic ancestor  of tho Hy Nlale, to King C nnor Mao  Nossa, who was the conterhpoiary of  the Roman Emperors Tiberius and Augustus; from Connor Mao Nessa to  King NlaJ of tho hostages, who rolgned  In the generation before St Fatriok  came to Ireland; f.-om King Nlal to  King Malcolm Can Mor, who married  Princess Margaret, sister of the Saxon  king Edgar Athellng; from King Malcolm to the heiolc King Bruce of Scotland; and from thonce, through tho  Stuarts, tho house *t Hvwover nnd thnt  of Coburg. to Edward VII., the descent  Is as direct and as Incontrovertible as  any descent In anclont or modem hlsv  tory, says the Marquise do Fonkno?.,  Of course, thero are other people,  soma of them great Irish nobles, and  others, more ecrmmoners, bosides hun*  dreda of persons who oan show descent  from the ancient kings of Ireland. But  all have quitted the royal caste, which  Xing Edward is alone to retain. For  all those who wish to have fuller particulars of this Irish ancestry of King  Edward, I would refer to tit* works of  the late Sir Bernard Burke, Ulster king  at arms, to other eminent geneAlogirts,  and last, but not Jrast, to thnt tru������tH  associate of Parnell and former Nationalist member of Parliament, Fionk  Hugh O'Donnell, a recognised authority  en Irish history,  ThU Irish ancestry of King Edward  Invests his dynasty with an antiquity  suporlor to that of any reigning house  of Europe.

FAR AWAY FROM DOCTOR  AND DRUG STORE  Many Dwellers on the Prairie Have Learned  to Depend Almost Entirely on  Dr. Chase's Medicines.  Living twenty-two miles from a  -drug store the writer of the letter  quoted below tells oi tlie benefits obtained from the use of Dr. -nose's  Medicines in times of sickness and  suffering.  In thousands ot lonely homes  throughout the northwest the family  depends almost entirely on Dr.  Chase's Medicines and Uie receipts  contained in Dr. Chase's Receipt  Book as a means of maintaining  health , and combatting disease.  Mrs. Thos. Shiels, Stoughlon, Sask.,  writes: "We have used nearly all of  Br. Chase's Medicines in our family  with splendid results and send direct  to you for them because we live  twenty-two miles from a drug store.  "In Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills  wo found a cure for constipation, biliousness and kidney disease.  "I used several boxes of Dr. Chase's  Nerve Food for nervousness from  ���������which I had been a great sufferer and  it built me up and strengthened me  wonderfully.  "Some years ago I had an ulcer on  my ankle and tltou^n I tried many  treatments of one kind and another  could get nothing to heal it until I  used Dr..Chase's Ointment, whicii I  have also found an excellent cure for  itching piles. We would scarcely  know how to get along without Dr.  Chase's Medicines.'1- "  The confidence which people have  i.i Dr. Chase's Medicines can only be  accounted for by the fact that they  never disappoint. Por nearly half a  century they have been before the  public and had a record of cures unparalleled in the history of medicine,  These family medicines are sent by  mail postpaid on receipt of price. Dr,  Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills, 25 cents  a box, Dr. Chase's Nerve Food 50  cents a box, Dr. Chase's Ointment 60  cents a box; At all dealers or Ed-  j manson, Bates & Co., Toronto.  r  Unfortunately a good many men have  lhe conviction  that they  must  keep  exerting themselves all the time.

You cannot live well  and keep happy under a constant and  tyrannical sense of effort.   There must  be times of play, times to let up tlie  tension and to do easy and natural  ���������things which don't require conscience  -and exact attention. -HonceBushnell,  4he great Connecticut minister, recognized'this when he said, "Let's go sin  awnile."

As a recipe for the home-making o!  a cheap paint for out-door work, an  Australian paper gives the following:  "Take two bushels of fr,esh stone  lime, or good fresh-slaked lime will  do, but the first is preferable. Put  the lime In a water-tight barrel and  put in enough water to thoroughly  slake it Add twenty-five pounds; ol  beef'tallow and stir occasionally until  the tallow is thoroughly incorporated  with the lime. Less than thia quantity can be mixed by observing tha  proper proportions of lime and tallow. For coloring matter earth colors must be .used, such as yellow  ochre, Venetian red or burnt, umber.  'With^eitberspruee-br--goldea_Qc3ir43'_xou  can get a beautiful soft cream tint,  and by using more ochre a buff tint  Venetian red will give a creamy pink,  which In some cases will look well  Burnt umber will give all the shadei  of drab you want by adding more ot  less as you want it light or dark. Mix  the coloring matter with water la a  separate vessel, taking care that it  does not go lumpy. This can be prevented by adding a little water at a  time and stir thoroughly until you get  It about the consistency of cream.  Prom BO to 75 cents worth of course  >7tll be sufficient to make the mass ft  nice light huff, but as ochre varies ln  Btrengtb tbe tlut nan be secured only  by testing as you mix. As the color  will always be, darker in Its mixed  state than after ft (s applied and, dries  out, test a little first on a piece ol  board until you get the depth of tint  wanted. A pretty combination on a  building Is a buff body, and for trimming add umber to the -buff until you  get a contrasting shade of creamy  drab. Tbe mixture will need thinning  with soft water until It works freely  under the brush. Be careful not to  thin too much. Apply with a whitewash  brush or flat paint brush.  "This is a cheap and durable paint  and is valuable for outbuildings where  a rough grade of lumber Is generally  UBert, which would require a lot of oil  paint, More especially ts It valuable  in palntng old and weather-beaten  buildings. The combination of lime and  tallow forms a waterproof and weatherproof coating which fills the pores ol  the wood and arrests the action of the  weather upon the wood. To make a  good Job, ornrks nn<������ holes In the siding  of buildings should be filled with tho  paint In Its paste form and If filled as  they are reached and Immediate!?  painted over before getting dry, wlf  not show spots or streaks,"  A Surprise Ib Bfsoits  Every box of Mooney'i Perfection  Cream Sodai yoo open���������yoo wiD  find s new delight in these dainty  biscuits.

William Hickling Prescott, who was  boru at Salem, Mass., on tbe 4th of  Hay, 1796, was the son of a prosperous lawyer, entered Harvard college in  1311 aud graduated in 1814. Early in  his college career he had bis left eye  blinded by a piece of bread playfully  'thrown at him by a fellow student, and  the other eye soon became sympathetically affected; He traveled iu England, France and Italy and then devoted himself to severe study, but it  wa^not till the beginning of 182C that  he found/ the work of his life within  the range of Spanish history. Fortu-  uately bis means were ample, so that  he was able to procure the services of  assistants and to live amid conditions  of comfort. By constant habit be gained the power of carrying a great deal  \o bis memory, and after he had revolved the whole of a chapter iu his mind  he quickly transferred it to paper by  means of his stylus aud an ingenious  wrltiug case especially constructed for  the blind. He published his ''History of  Ferdinand and Isabella" In 1838, which  carried his name across the ocean to  the old world. This was followed by  His "History of the Conquest of Mexico" in 1843, and of "Peru" in 1847.  These gave him a great reputation.  Tops.

WHEN water Is left to Itself, does  it stand still?  What do you think about  that, boys and girls? You������do  not feel sure, do you? Very well, let us  make some experiments and find out.  Of course, if we imprison some water-  tor instance, nil a bottle full of It and  cork it tight���������It cannot move.  But give lt a chance and see what is  the result.  BANTAMS���������AND HOW  TO KEEP   THEM  r  Take a soft brick, not a hard one, and  leave it on end in a dish containing water. After half an hour or so come back  and you will very likely notice that the  water has begun to -climb up the brick.  An hour or so later make observations  again. You will find the water has  climbed perceptibly higher. And, of  course. In time It will reach the top or  the brick (that Is, if there was enough  water in the dish to begin with).  Another experiment. Take a lamp  chimney, tie cheesecloth over the bottom  of it and fill, it with sand. Leave it in a  dish containing water. In a very short  time, if you return to look at it, you will  find the water has started to rise  through the sand to the top of the  chimney. You will observe that It rises  much faster' through the  loose, soft sand than it does  through the solid, hard brick.  Now, can you suggest two  Important principles which  these experiments go to  prove?  One is that water, if left  Rlone, does not stand still,  but tends to rise and spread  through some medium or  other. '',...  The other ls that the best "medium,  is soft and loose, rather than solid and  hard.  Now what ls important to apply these  principles to? This is April, you know.  Why, to plants, of course. Quite right.  Our plants should stand in loose, well  cultivated soil, so that when they are  watered the water will quickly make Its  own way down through the soil to the  bottom and then rise again, thus thoroughly moistening the soil.  DON'T fail to note  the difference between  "m oi s t" soil and  "wet"  soil.  A wet soil has more  water  than can  possibly    stick    to    the  grains   of   earth.    A  moist   soil   has   just  enough water to reach  .and_dlng_to__ej*<|_rx_  grain of earth. Planta  like   moist   soil,   but  not wet soil.  Maybe  some  boy  or  girl   smiles  to  think of water "sticking" to anything.  Ah. but it does!  - See the boy who has just bathed.his  face and hands. What is it sticking to  hts skin that he has to wipe oft with  his towel?   Water,  Some one lets water drop slowly from  a filled fountain pen, drop by drop, on a  pebble. The water from tho first drop  spreads over the top of Ue pebble  and sticks to it. The same, happens  after the second and third drop, etc.,  till there ls more water clinging to the  bottom of the pebble than the top,  When thingB reach this point, the  water begins, of course, to drip from  the pebble. But note how much had up  to this time stuck to the pebble 1  ramar  foP/ass-  '    Blind Artist���������a Game  HANG- a blackboard nt ono ond of  the room.

BANTAM raising is a fancy, nothing more. There is no money in  bantams, only a lot of pleasure.  And not merely boys and girls,  but men and women get the craze for  them.  And what wonder! For is there anything under the sun more cunning  than a sprightly little game bantam  or a thickly feathered, beautifully colored little Pekln (or Cochin) bantam?  The home of bantam raising is really  in Kngland, but America has taken it  First, look at the side view. You see  a 3-foot hall, by which you enter  the house; then a house 6 by 8 feet in  size. The depth from top of roof to  floor is 8 feet. A door opens from the  hall into the chicken house, and a window from the house tnto the chicken  yard or run. (Make the latter any size  you wish, of chicken wire fencing, 5 feet  high, with a boarding 1 foot high all  around the bottom.)  The front view shows you how to put  in the window, tiand also  a small en-  cause of your having neglected to keep  their house clean!  With a house built on Mr. Hofacker's  Elan, cleaning is very easily done. The  hens* nests could be made with a steep  celling, so that the chickens could not  roost on the top of the boxesi The  boxes have no bottoms to them, but rest  right on the floor, so that you may lake  them up and turn them upside down.  For a hen roost, natl a narrow strip  of wood with its flat side on the thin  edge of another narrow strip of wood,  up enthusiastically, and now we have  many beautiful varieties on exhibit in  all our great poultry shows.  The demand in bantams is for form  and color. So if you are going to keep  bantams, boys and girls, start In with  the best you can get, if you can only  have two. Better two that are fine in  form and color than more than two  that have nothing to boast of!  Probably the quaintest variety of  bantams so far produced is the Japanese bantam. Notice the extreme  shortness of his legs. If a first-class  specimen, indeed, he will not show  any leg at all when walking. This ls  due to the profusion of his feathers.  The tail is very much developed and  the feathers stand erect, as high as his  head or higher, often touching the  back of his neck.  Many of you wish to know how to secure bantams and then how to take care  of them.  There are several varieties of bantams  from which you can make your choice.  The picture shows a pair of bantams of  ���������the_brow_n2breas_ted,,r.ed__g_ame_ variety.^  You will notice that the male fs considerably larger than the female.  For your purpose, you had better not  buy more than one cock and four or five  hens. The price of one cock and two  hens ranges from $5 up, although you  may be lucky and get them cheaper,  Through the kindness of Mr, William  Hofacker, Polly Evans ls able to give  you boys and girls an excellent plan for  a bantam house.  >*5sN  trance close to the floor. (The floor, by  the way, should be raised a foot above  the ground so as to keep the house clear  of vermin, etc.)  From the side, front and ground views  you can learn the positions of the water  fountain, grit box, roost and nests, with  which the house should be furnished.  "Why have a house at all?" you may  ask. Well, the reason of this is that  chickens came originally from tropical  regions, and so, like hothouse flowers,  they cannot stand too much outdoor  weather. They thrive best where their  delicate combs and toes are not exposed  to frost.  Any kind of lumber will do for your  bantam house, and ft need not even.be  smooth lumber. Even with poor materials you can put together a very  neat and serviceable house if you put  your mind to it.  For your roof material you had better  use tar   paper.    First make a roof of  ordinary boards, then put on your tar  paper, tacking it down, as indicated in  _"th"e~drawingr  Of course, you understand that it is  absolutely necessary to keep the bantam house perfectly clean. When .you  undertake to keep chickens, you are going into the housekeeping business; so  you must be as faithful as a housekeeper In attending to your duties. My!  how ashamed you . would be. to have  nothing to show your friends but untidy,   Insect-infested  bantams,   aO be  lt you look at It from the end, it will  look like the capital letter T. Round  and smooth all the edges of the boards  with a plane or knife.  A good water fountain that cannot be  soiled by the birds can be made from a  jug. Make a hole near the bottom of the  jug by nicking off a piece of the surface  with the corner of a hatchet, and then  boring the hole with a sharpened nail.  When the jug is filled with water, put  a stopper in the hole. The water will  remain above the hole in the jug, but  will not rise any further.  Perhaps some of you boys have other  good suggestions for water fountains.  Freedom frbm dampness and regular  feeding are two of the secrets of success in bantam raising. For the flist  week or two of small chicks' lives feed  them "hard-boiled eggs chopped fine  and mixed with bread , crumbs or  crushed crackers. After that, some  patent meal and mixed grains.  If length and profusion of feathers  are desired, feed a liberal allowance  of cooked meat and scraps from the  table; ~ This"is "not"good-f ood-f or-game  bantams, however, as they should not  have much feathering.  Don't forget fresh water dally, fresh  air, good, clean grit and plenty of  green food.  If you have any further questions to  ask, write to Polly Evans or to Mr.  William Hofacker, P. O. Box 158, Norwood, Pa., inclosing a stamped, self-  addressed envelope for the reply.  How the Boys Can Build a Good Boat  IN THESE pictures you have  a good, simple plan for the  construction   of   a   homemade  boat.   A boy. of 15 recently made Buch a bout, and  it was a success.  With $5, which he earned by  doing odd jobs, he bought tho  lumber, nails, paint, etc,; and  he used tho tools that a boy Is  likely to And In hler father's  household kit.  Ho llrst built the frames  with square ends, oh you seo  In the picture. Then ha built  tho sides of two wide boards, ,  which wore sawed with a gradual curve  from each side of tho centre. These ho  nailed to tho framo, and ho very carefully fitted the end ploces,  After that, ho turned tho whole affair  over and fitted and nailed the bottom-  boards In placo, putting on the edges,  etc., a thick coat of paint, so as to make  tho bottom watortlgnt, and between tho  edges of tho boards he laid lengths of  lampwlcklng, loosely twisted and smear  ed with soft lead,  Then, when ������.he planks were all thoroughly put on, he gave the entire boat,  Inside and out, two coats of paint. Aftor  this It was ready for the flnal touches-  seats, deck, gratings, etc,  The lumber he used was boards % ot  an inch thick, but for the deck only  Inch boards wero uBed.   At each en  ho made lockers to hold his spare fish  Ing tacklo, etc.  He mado the gratings so that they  could easily be removed for cleaning or  balling.  The length was 10 feet, width at  centre 3 foot, depth amidships 2 feet,  depth at ends 1 foot. ,  And it cost him only about |5 in  money. Ho did not figure out how  much hia time and labor woro worth.
