TllKEE days later the jam of the  drive reached the dam at Redding. After tlie rear had drop-  ped dowu river from Redding  Carroll and Orde returned to their deserted little box of a house at Monrovia.  Orde breathed deep of a new satisfaction in walking again the streets of  this little sandy, sawdust paved, shan-  tyfled town, with its yellow hills and  ita wide blue river and its glimpse of  the lake far in the otilng.  "Hanged if l know what's struct  me," he mused. "Never experienced  any remarkable joy before in getting  back to this sort of truck." 5  Then, with a warm glow at the  heart, the realization was brought to  Lim. This -was home, and over yonder  under the shadow of the heaven pointing spire a slip of a girl was waiting  for him.  The rest of the week Orde was absent up the river, superintending in a  general way the latter progress of the  ���������drive. **./  At the booms everything was in  readiness to receive the jam. The  long swim arm slanting across the  river channel was attached to its  wlnch.which would operate it When  shut it would close the main channel  and shunt into the booms the logs floating in the river. There, penned at last  by the piles driven'in a row and held  together at the top by belted timbers,  they would He quiet. Men armed with  pike poles would then take up the  work of distribution according to the**  brands stamped ou the ends. Each  brand had its own separate "sorting  pens," the_.lower end leading again  into^^ the^e^^FFerT^FTOrcPtKse^actr*  owner's property was rafted and towed  to his private booms at his mill below..  Orde spent the day before the jam  appeared in constructing what he called a "boomerang."  "Secret invention just yet," he explained to Newmark. "I'm going to  hold up the drive in the main river  until we have things bunched; then  I'm going to throw a big crew down  here by the swing. Heinzman antici-  pates, of course, that I'll run tbe entire drive into the booms nnd do ail  my sorting there. Naturally if I turn  his logs loose Into the river as fast as  I ran across them he will be able to  pick them up one at a time, for he'll  only get then, occasionally. If I keep  them 'until everything else is sorted  only Heinzman's logs will remain, and  as we have no right to hold logs we'll  have to turn tbem loose through the  lower sorting booms, where be can be  ready to raft them. In that way bo  gets them all right without paying us  a cent. See?"  "Yes, 1 see," said Newmark.  "Well," said Orde, with a laugh,  ���������"here is where I fool him. I'm going  to rush the drive into the booms all nt  once, but I'm going to sort out Heinzman's logs nt these openings near the  entrance and turn them into tho mala  *h'What good will tlmt dor aRltod  NowmarU skeptically, "He gets them  sorted just tho same, doesn't ho?"  "Tho current's fnlrly strong," Orde  pointed out, "and the river's almighty  wide. Whon you spring seven or eight  million feet on n mnn nil nt once nnd  unexpected nnd ho with no crew to  handle them, he's going to keep ol-  mighty busy. And if ho don't stop  them this sldo his mill ho'il hnve to  raft nnd tow thorn bunk, and tf fc������  doesn't stop rem thin side the Inko he  may as well kiss thorn nil goodby."  Tho boomornng worked llko n cbnrm.  Ordo, in personal charge, watched tlmt  through the different opnnlngs In hln  .boomornng Uie "H" logs woro shunt-  od Into tlio river. Shortly tho chnnnol  wub full of logs floating morrlly nwny.  "I'vo got to go down nnd boo how tho  Dutchman Is making It," announced  Ordo.  Ilo drovo to nolnzmnn's mill. There  ho found evidences of tho wildest ox-  cttemont Bonts piled in all directions.  A tug dnrtod buck and forth. Constantly tho number of floating loga  augmented, however.   Mnny hnd al-  r-pfirtv rmnt. liy.  "If you think you're busy now," snld  Ordo to hlmsolf, with n chucklo, "Jum;  wait until you begin to got logs. Whnt'*  ho doing with that tug?" thought he.  "Oli, ho! Ho's stringing booms across  tlio river to hold tlio wholo outfit."  lie toughed aloud ami drove irui_-  tlcally bnck to tlio booum  "Ho's shut down his mill." shouted  Ordo, "nnd ho's got nil that gnng of  hlghlmnkora out nnd every old rum  blossom In Monrovln, nnd I bet It  you my 'logs* to hlrn he'd chase his  tail In circles. I'm going to tnko Mnrsh  and the Sprite nnd go to town. Old  HolnKmnn," ho nddod ns nn nfter-  thought, "Ir stringing booms across ths  river-obstructing navigation."  "Mnr-ah." ho cnlled, "got up steam?'*  Thoro npponrod n short, scjunro mnn,  ������yes bluo ns the sky.  "Up tu two minutes," he auawcrcd.  "tlnrvey, flre hor uit!"  Captain Marsh guldod his energetic  charge omouc tht- logs flontlmr ln ths  stream with the marvelous second Instinct of the expert tugboat man. Ordo  noted with satisfaction that many of  the logs ,had found lodgment among  the reeds and in the bayous and inlets.  One at a time, and painfully, these  would have to be salvaged.  Shortly Orde. standing by the wheel  ln the pilothouse, could see down the  stretches of the river a crowd of meo  working, antllke.  "They've got em stopped." comment-'  ed Orde.   "Look at that gang working  from bonts!"  "Whnt do you want me to do!"  nsked Captain Mnrsh. .  "This ts a navlgnole river, Jsu't HT  replied Orde.   "Run through!"  Tho  tftn   headed   otnugiu   ior  t������*  Render lino of booms stretching quite  .across the river.  Ordo looked ut his watch.  "We'll be lute for the mall unless  we hurry," said ho. <  Marsh rang the engine room bell.  The water churned white behind.  "Vat you do". Stop!" cried Heinzman  from a boat.  "You're obstructing navigation!"  yelled Ordo. "I've got to go to town  to bviy a postuge stamp."  The prow of the tug, accurately  aimed by Marsh, hit square in tho  junction of two of the booms.-. There  ensued a moment of strain; then tho  links snapped, and the Sprite plunged  joyously through the opening. The  booms, swept aside by the current,  floated to either shore. The river was  open.  ."Slow down, Marsh," said Orde.  "Let's see the show."  Up river all the small boats gathered  in a line, connected oue to the other  by a rope. The tug passed ��������� over to  them the cable attached to the boom.  Evidently the combined efforts of tha  rowboats were counted on to hold the  half boom across the current while the  tug brought out the other half. When  the tug dropped t he cable Orde laughed.  "Nobody but a Dutchman would  have thought of that!" he .cried. "Now  for the fun!"  Immediately the weight fell on the  Bmall boats they were dragged irresistibly backward. Marsh lowered his  telescope, the tears of laughter streaming down bis face.  "They'll have to have two tugs before they can close the break that  way." commented Orde.  "Sure thing," replied Captain Marsh.  1 But at tbat moment a black smoke  rolled up over the marshes, and shortly  around the bend from above came the  _Lucy Belje.    '   .The Lucy Belie was~the~main excuse  for calling tlie river navigable. In appearance she was two storied, with  twin smokestacks, an Iron Indian on  her top and a "splutter behind" paddle  ���������wheel,  j   "There comes his help," said Orde.  Sure euough, the Lucy Belle stopped.  After a short conference she steamed  clumsily over to get hold of oue end  of the booms. The tug took the other.  In time and by dint of much plashing,  some collisions and several attempts  the ends of the booms were united.  By this time, however, nearly all tho  logs had escaped.   The tug, towing a  string of rowboats, set out in pursuit.  The Lucy Belle turned in toward the  tug.  *  "She's going to speak us," marveled  Orde.   .  "Tug ahoy!" bellowed a red faced individual from the upper deck. He wan  dressed In blue and brass buttons and  was liberally festooned, with gold braid  and embroidered anchors.  "Hollo there, commodore! What ii  it?" replied Mnrsh.  "They want a tug up thero at Helms  mnn's,   Cnn you go?"  ' "Sure!" criod Mursh, choking.  The Lucy Belle sheered off rangnlft  ccntly.  "Whnt do you think of that?" Marsl  asked Orde,  "Hend upstream again."  Hotnssinnn snw the Sprite coralni  and rowed out frantically, splashing  nt every stroke and yelling with ovory  brentli.  "Don't you go through there!   Valt  . minute!   Stop, I toll you!"  "Hold up!" snld Ordo to Mnrsh.  Heinzman rowod alongside  A stableman picked his way out over  the booms with.a message for Orde.  "Mr. Heinzman's ashore and wants  to see you," said he.  Orde found the mill man pacing restlessly up and down before n steaming  pair of horses. Newmark,' perched on  a stump, was surveying him sardonic-  nlly-  "Here you poth nre!" burst out  Heinzman. "I must riot lose-my logs!  Vat Is your prohonttlon ?"  Nowmark broke ln quickly.  '.   "I've told Mr. Heluzmun," said ho  '."that we would sort and deliver til  aaat of his logs for $2 a thousand."  "That will be about It" agreed Oii*  (   "But." exploded Helnamftn. "that l  as much aa you agrcct to drive and  dcllffer my wholo cut!"  "Precisely," said Newmark,  'Tut 1 liuf all the eggspeuce of driving the logs myself. Why shoult 1 pay  you for doing what 1 haf ulretty paid  to haf done?"  Ordo chuckled.  "Heinzman," said he, "we aren't  forced to bother with your logs, and  you're lucky to get out so easy. If I  turn your whole drive into the river  you'll iose more than half of it outright, aud it'll cost you a heap to  salvage the rest And, what's more,  I'll turn 'em in before you can get  hold of a pile driver. I'll sort night  and day," he bluffed,'"and by tomorrow morning you won't have a stick  of timber above my booms." He  laughed again. "You want to get  down to business almighty sudden."  When finally Heinzman bad driven  sadly away and the whole drive. "H"  logs included, was pouring into the  main boom Orde stretched his arms  over his head in a luxury of satisfaction.  "That just about settles that campaign," he said to Newmark.  "Oh, no, it doesn't!" replied the latter decidedly.  "Why?" asked Orde, surprised. "You  don't imagine he'll do anything more?'  "No, but I will," said Newmark.  ���������������*������������������������������  Early in the fall the baby was bora  It proved to be a boy. Orde, nervous  as a cat after the ordeal of doing  nothing, tiptoed into the darkened  room.' He found his wife weak"and  pale, her dark hair framing ber face,  a new look of rapt inner contemplation rendering even more mysterious  her always fathomless eyes. She held  her lips to him.   He kissed them.  Grandma   Orde   brought   the   newcomer in  for Orde's inspection.   He  looked gravely down on the puckered,  _-discolored_-bit__of__humanlty__jfith___a  faint uneasiness.  "Is-do you think���������that is"- He  hesitated. "Does the doctor, say he's  going to be all right?"  "All right!" cried Grandma Orde indignantly. "I'd like to know if he isn't  all right now! What in the world-do  you expect of a newborn baby?"  But Carroll was laughing softly to  herself on the bed. Stfe held out ber  arms for the baby and cuddled it close  to her breast  "He's a little darling." she crooned,  "nnd he's going to grow up big and  strong, just like his daddy." She put  her cheek agninst the sleeping babe's  and looked up sldewise at the two  standing above ber. "But 1 know how  you feel," she said to her husband.  "When they first showed him to me I  .. thought be looked liko a peanut a  thousand years old."  KNOWS HIS MILITARY  CAPT. CHAMBERS IS A PROLIFIC  WRITER ON THE SUBJECT.  PROF. HUTTQN'S HUMOR.

Vae parrot waa a great Tory, and  ono of its flues* bits of talking was  "Hip,, hip-hooray for Sir John A."  But, notwithstanding tho doctor's political allegiance, Polly made friends  with him. He had a knock of handling such pets, and whon ho scratched  Polly's head she forgave him for being a Grit.  A littlo later, whilo tho doctor was  talking to ono of tho ladies, thoy heard  tho parrot making strange, guttuial  noises thnt might have meant thnt it  was suffering. Tho noiso grow to something almost terrifying. "1-s thoro anything wrong with PollyP" asked tho  doctor, but the liulios merely smiled  and said, "No.'V  Polly kept up tho strango, deep  noises, and finally Dr. Rutherford  said thnt ho must go and seo what  was wrong.

Mr. Englehart was' born in Cleveland, Ohio, Nov. 2, 1847, liis parents  being John Joel Englehart and Hannah Richards Englehart. His schooldays were brief, for he left Cleveland  in 1860, at the age of thirteen years,  and went to New York, where he entered the Pine street offices of Sonn-  born, Drafoo 4 Co.,-an oil-exporting  firm, as clerk and rose by his own ef-.  forts to be a partner in the concern.

After six  years of success in London Mr. Englehart sold out, and was on the point  of returning'to the United States,  when he purchased the works of the  Carbon Oil Co:, and moved them to  Petrblia, where the principal oil wells-  were located, himself becoming a resident of the town. In 1881 the Imperial Oil Co. was established, Mr. Englehart becoming vice-president, a position which he "still holds. The company was reorganised in 1891, and the  refineries removed to Sarnia.

Norman Duncan  ia one of the blood-red fictionists on  this continent to-day. His stories  appear in all the big magazines of  Canada and Europe.  Norman Duncan, novelist, has a  brother, Robert Duncan,' who looks  like him, with long, shaggy hair,  dreamy eyes, and that sort of thing.  For all the world Robert Duncan  might have been an inventor, of  stories, too. like the highly original  and interesting Norman. Except that  it happened he became -an inventor���������  in the realm of applied science.  Down. in    Pittsburg,    where   Dr.  Robert Kennedy Duncan now is,  the  papers   of   the   "Smoky City"   have  been talking recently of him as one  of the biggest "smokes" in the town,  calling him  the  "new Edison," and:  other pet names like that.    It seems  that Dr. Duncan for some  years has  been doing a lot of big things in a  quiet, unassuming, manly, Canadian'  way.  and  people are just beginning!  to find it out.  They a;e recalling that he was the  law scholar, expert in chemistry,  whom the United States Government  sent a few years ago over to Germany to study the chemistry of com-  merce, and report to them its application to United States industry; and  whom nfter his return the University  of Kansas called to the new chair of  industrial chemistry. To have revo-  lutionizi'd many' processes of manufacturing, in a highly organized commercial community like the United  States, that's the credit they are giv-  ing to Robert Kennedy Duncan.

A Consumption Cure  Milk strippings when taken from n  heulthy cow that gives very rich milk  and token in quantities of a quart  twice a day immediately after milking before it cools any, will cure a  larger por cent, of cases of consumption thnn any other treatment and  will curo in half the time of any  other method. It will also prevent it  when taken in timo. The reason why  it is so successful is because it is absorbed or-transfused into; tlio circulation almost immediately without  taxing the digestive organs as other  foods' do, and as the strippings or  last quart of the milking from a cow  that gives very rich milk is nearly all  cream the patient will take on fat so  much faster than can bo accomplished by nny other method that thoy  soon gftin enough strength nnd vitality to ovorcomo the germs causing  consumption.  To get host results one should begin (  with a glass of strippings and increase gradually; but if thero is any  disgust crentnd for it any time the  quantity should bo dropped at onco to  one halt ond then moronso gradually  again. In two or three weeks they can  usually tnko n quart in tho morning  and evening.  Tt is very important to tako it  Immediately after milking so as not  to allow it to cool below blood heat.  In cold weather it should be milked  into a dish resting in warm water to  provont it from cooling nny.

Southampton, Goderlch, Collingwood,  An Energetic Britisher.  Mr. .1. Ellis Barker, the well-known  Enfflish writer on politics and economics, recently paid a flying visit to  Canada to take a hand in the reciprocity controversy. Many persons picture the writers for the stately British  reviews and similar journals ns  academic gentlemen," whose fightii ;  blood is not allowed to run away with  them. Mr. Barker does not belong  to that type. He has the swinging  stride and the masterful way ot the  man who will not put up with contradiction, and he lays down his views  in the most decided manner.  Mr. Barker came to Canada with a  plan of campaign for the fight against  the treaty, and he gave it out in  speeches and interviews, He hurried  round to the. sympathetic newspaper  offices in Toronto nnd proceeded to  wake things up with a vigor, that  suggested tho militant American'politician. He gave his instructions and  departed. In ono cfuce he saw a  miip of gram areas which interested  him, and before anyone could gasp,  it ha;' been given to him. He took  out the nails nnd departed with it.  Mr. J. Ellis Barker would quite upset  the views of. anyone who thought that  English public men preferred to move  with a minimum amount of speed,  As ono Torontonian remarked:  "Really, if I did not know otherwise,  I should thipk ho hnd tho British Em-  piro in his pocket."   n  Whlteflsh Are Dying.

Sir Robert Walpole, was the first  Prime .'"inister who made 10 Downing  st.c his official residence. He refused the offer of the House as a gift.  Lord North, Pitt, Lord Grey, Lord  Melbourne, Disraeli. Gladstone and  many others have Tesidec! here when  in office.' It wa.' hore that Aubrey  de Vere, tho last Earl of Oxford-, died,;  and it was here, too, that tho Karl  of Chatham was taken aftor his fatal  swoon in the House of Lords. It is  reported that when Sir R. Walpole  removed from his official .residence  in Downing Street ht found an old account 1 !. in which his father had  set down his personal expenses. In  the threo months and ten days he  was'in London one winter as an M.P,,  ho *had only expended ������64 7s. 6d.  Among the entries in this remarkable  bo?k were small sums for Nottingham  ale; 18d. for dinners; 5s. to Bob  Walpole, afterwards the Earl of Ox*  ford.  Another anecdote is told of a Mr.  Stuart, a city coal merchant, who, on  becomin0 r;proprietor of The Courier,  "newspaper,--'went "to see Lord Grey,  and bluntly offered that Minister the  support of the paper���������which up to  thon had advocated totally different  views,���������in exchange lor Treasury patronage. Lord Grey indignantly rung  the bell, and told tho footman "to  show that gentleman to the door."  it was uunng tne time that Pitt  resided in Downing Street that "the  Heaven-born Minister," fell in love  with Eleanor Eden, the daughter of  Lord Auckland. Society was much interested in the affair, and it was fully  expected that the engagement would  be publicly announced. Pitt, however, explained in a long letter to  Lord Auckland that there were "decisive and insurmountable*' obstacles  to the union. Much correspondence  followed. The father described his  daughter as "good, generous, frank,  cheerful, and gentle," and the "fair  pride of our lives." Pitt, in addition  to being in financial difficulties, was  in a delicate state of health, and he  adhered to his former decision, although there can bo little doubt he  had a sincere affection for Miss Eden,  (or when the latter afterwards married Lord Hobart, it is reported that  Pitt's heart -was almost broken.  To come, to much later times, few  people are aware of the fact that Mr,  Gladstone (to whose famous breakfast-parties in Downing Street many  distinguished . persons were invited,  and who was generally known as a  strenuous politician) had a jocose and  genial side to his nature, which wa.  especially attractive. His married life  has been described as one long hon-  'eymoon-;-and���������in-his-earlier-days-f he-  could so unbend as to be induced to  sing a song. One of his favorites was  the "Tinker's Song," which had the  following  "giddy"  refrain:���������  A  ragamuffin husband  and a  ranti-  poling wife,  We'll fiddle it and scrape it  ���������  Through the up. and downs of life.  In this connection it may be pointed out that Lord Gladstone has inherited his father's love of music, and  one of his lordship's pleasures in life  is to join in singing duets with his  wife.���������London Globe.

NEIL FERGUSON.  Grasping at the Shadow  Many a man has frequently been  persuaded "or tempted to withdraw,  from u savings bank the hard earned  savings which he has, perhaps, for  years been laying aside to keep him  in his old age, sometimes by a friend  who applies to him for a temporary  lonn--"just for a'few weeks," the inducement to part with his money being the offer of a handsome bonus,  hut moro frequently is he the victim  of the silver tongued exponent of  some get-rich-quick scheme. Experience teaches, however, that too often  doqs tho borrower fail in his probably  good intentions, and the lender loses  the amount lent, and that in 99 times  out of a hundred doos the get-rich-  quick scheme fitil to materialize���������in  grasping at tho shadow wc lose tho  substance.

Moneys paid into the Annuities fnud cannot be alienated or  used for any other purpose, but must  remain intact for the object for which  the payments hnve been made, otherwise the end aimed at would never,  ii8 has been illustrated above, be attained, and old age would overtake us  unprovided for its many trials ; and  tribulations. ���������,  Further information on the subject  may be obtained by applying to the  Postmaster, or direct to the Superintendent of Annuities, Ottawa, to  whom all letters go free of postage.  Why Do ciien Like Zam-Buk  A Chat with Mothers  "Whenever my children have any  sore places, cuts, or skin troubles,  they ask for .Zam-Buk. They can always depend upon it doing what is  needed." '' .  So says Mrs. A. Alee, of 170 Chatham Street, Montreal.  A missionary, writing from the  West Coast of Africa, says: "One  boy who was treated for a bad case of  ulcer, came back recently and said,  T like best that green medicine.'  The 'green medicine' was Zam-Buk."  Now- why should children, all the  world over, show such,a marked preference for Zam-Buk?  Children like Zam-Buk because, as  soon as applied to a burn, a cut, or a  sore, it stops the pain and then gradually, but surely, it heals. As soon  as the pain of a wound or sore is relieved a child can go on with its play  and leave Zam-Buk to finish' off the  healing.  Mothers might look a little more  deeply into the action of Zam-Buk.  First, it is highly antiseptic. As soon  as applied it stops all danger of festering, blood-poisoning,   and    inflam-  .matiori. S_ecgn_dJ_._it_._is,_goothingi It  cools the wound or sore; allays the  irritation; stops the pain and smarting. Then, thirdly, it stimulates the  ceils, beneath the injured part, . to  halthy action, and causes the speedy  creation of new, healthy tissue.  Just try Zam-Buk for cuts or burns,  or* cold sores, or eczema, ulcers, rashes, bad leg, piles, varicose ulcers, or  any inflamed or diseased condition.;  of the skin. Its effect1 will highly*  satisfy you. All druggists and stores  50c. box, or free .from-Zam-Buk .Co.,  Toronto., for price. ��������� RefuBe harmful  imitations and cheap, worthless substitutes. . '  CURED  HIS  LAME  BACK.  West Fort William, Nov. 7th, 1908.  "I have been troubled with a lame  back for the post twentv years and  have used plasters and ointments  without effect. At last I tried Gin  Pills, which proved just the( thing,  and I would highly recommend them  to anyone who has a Strained or  Lame Back."  H. Harkness.  VARSITY RAGGING.  It Is Now a Much More ArtUtic and  Humorous Proceeding.  "Ragging," having lost the greater  part of iu ancient ferocity, has, in  modern day?, been elevated to tha  rank of a fine art on which auy  amount of ingenuity and inventiou  tho old days,  can bo exercised.    In  Gin Pills net directly on the Kid-! aays The Manchester Courier, noth  ncys, relieve the pain, neutralize Uric   ing was easier tlian to punish an ob  Acid, which is generally formed when' jectionable undorgraduate by spread  there is Kidney Trouble.

The changes from mild to  severe weather, cold, raw, damp winds  following mildness start the aches and  twinges, or in more extreme cases, the  tortures of the trouble going.   But it  must be borne in mind'that it is not  the weather that causes rheumatism,  the trouble is rooted in the blood���������the  changeable weather merely starts the  pains.    The only way to reach   the  trouble and to cure it is through the  blood. The poisonous rheumatic acids  must be thrown off and driven out.  This is a solemn medical truth every  rheumatic    sufferer    should    realize.  Liniments   and   outward application  may givjMemporary  relief but they  never dicTa'iid never can cure' rheuma-  tism.   Any doctor will tell you this is  true.    The  sufferer   is   only  wasting  time  and   money   with  this   sort   of  treatment, and all the time the trouble is becoming more firmly rooted���������  and harder to cure.   There is just one  sure, speedy cure   for   rheumatism���������  Dr. Williams'  Pihk  Pills.    They act  directly  on the weak,    impure    and  tainted    blood.      They   .purify    and  strengthen it and' thus root out the  cause of rheumatism.    Here is a bit  of proof out of thousands of similar  _cas_c_s_.that__might_ be given.  ^Irs.--F^  X. Boisseau, St. Jerome, Que.; "says:  ���������"For almost two years I was a terrible sufferer from rheumatism.   The  trouble first located in the right leg,  making work about the house impossible,  and  walking very difficult.    I  tried to cure myself by means of all  sorts  of  liniments   and  lotions,   but  with no result���������it was   only   money  wasted..   The trouble constantly grew  worse and the pains more unbearable.  Finally it attacked the other leg, and  I was all but helpless and completely  discouraged, thinking I would be a  sufferer for the rest of my life.    At  this time I rend in our home paper of  .the troubio being cured- by Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and I decided to try  them.   After using .the pills for Severn! weeks I could see that they were  helping me, nnd I continued taking  them until I had used nine or ten  boxes  when   every  symptom  of  the  walk as well as ever I did.   Had I  known  of  Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills  earlier  I  would  have  saved  myself  much   suffering   and   much   money  spent in other-useless treatment aa  well."

All photographs and small ornaments are usually discovered ia a stack on the top  of the- bookcase, the whole surmounted by a lamp, whose oil vessel has  been filled with water. The bed will,  of course, be unmade, and the sheets  will carpet the floor, while the carpet  will serve as tapestry to the walls.

CE in tiie  THE. business girl ts so recent a  development thai some of us  have hardly become accustomed  to her yet. We are used to tho girl  who teaches school, to tho girl who  gives music* or .minting lessons, even to  tlie girl who does bookkeeping ������or stenography, but we-have'always regarded  her as something of an exception. Some  of tie are so old-fashioned that wo have  not yet shaken off the habit of taking  It for granted that when a girl finishes  school or college, or whatever course of  study she has pursued, she will come  home for a whilo, to be a comfort to her  mother and father and .have a" little  social life, and then marry and enter a  home of her own. There are a few of  us who still cherish a sneaking conviction that tlUs ie perhaps, after all, '  , about the best thing a girl can do with  her life.  Yet the 'business girl Is undeniably  ������������������wlt-h-us-ln-force,-*and-there-eati-be^-no-  doubt she lias come to stay. Thero  -seems to be no limit to the lines of work  Mie will undertake and carry through.  Every day I am hearing Of new depart-  - tires���������at least new tc ,me���������ehe has made.  Jjast week some one told me of a  woman who Is running a farm and eel-1-  - lug vegetables' to ' her rich country  neighbors, and making monoy by It. I  know several women who aro Impre-  aartasr, managing sln'gors and' readers  and lecturers, .nnd women who superintend factories, who are engineers,  .l.auehtsmen and architects, are as  plenty as women who n-vanage tearooms,  serve as caterers, personally conduct  parties of travelers to the far ends of  tho earth and drlvo automobiles.  And the business girl Ie not restricted  to the number of thoso who find self-  support necessary. Tho germ of independent work Is Jn tho air, ond few aro  the young women who escnpo It. Tho  tad that thplr fathers can take care of  them, and want to do It, does not seem  to affoot them In the least Out of the  parental ne_-t they go, to try) Ohc.r  wings, to pick up their own food and to  make their own nosts.  All  this  attack  upon    tho   buslnosa  world by woman haa created a new  class, and there seems to be some doubt  as yet how they shall be treated. What  Is tho Important feature-thc business or  tho girl? '-Which Is to be considered  first? Is the fact of .the business to bo  borne In mind to -an extent that leads us  to accord the girl the same klml of  treatment we would give her brother In  btmlnese? Or Is the standard position of  tho g-lrl In,tho homo to continue to In-*  tluenco us 'even after she has to a degree emancipated herself?  I know ono girl who works as hard ns  any man. Sho leaves her .house by H .  o'clock In the morning,' mid there aro  occasions when she does not 'return to*  It until 9 or 10 at night. Her average  dinner hour la 7,:)0. ' She gets home, well  tired out, just In time to ��������� wash her  hands before dinner, which her mother .  has cooked nnd put on the table. When  tlie meal is finished she helps clear  away and wash up, and It is often 9  o'clock or later before tlie tasks are  done and the woman who has been out  of the house at work all day can sit  down for a few minutes' rest and reading*.  I also know a man who works Jn the  same ofllce with this girl, * and whose  hours are no longer, his work no more  exhausting than hers. When he gets,  homq at night his dinner is ready for  him, and by the time he has finished  It. he  apparently  has  energy  left for  "When the-meal is finished she.  helps her mother."

But is It ever so with a womutKwho  follows an employment which takes her  outside of her home? What measure of  indulgence is accorded to her? Does her  family ever shake off the Impression  that she should be as ready to discharge small household tasks und responsibilities as though all tier life lay  within the four walls of her home and  s-he I .ad never known any but domestic* pursuits? When she hurries home  from .the oftice in order to arrange tne  (lowers for winner und make the salad  dressing and superintend the arrangement of the table; when she steals time  from her morning sleep, that she may  dust .the parlor and look over the clean  clothes be lore she goes forth to her  dally toll���������la this regarded as anything  buit a matter-of-course assumption of  regular duties to whilch she was born  and raised?

J������������nNS'"N Dl.ofl.  (From our own correspondent..  Your correspondent  had  occasion a sfyort time ago to visit  'the Chilliwaclt vallev, a district  famed and justly so, throughout  British Columbia for its agricultural possibilities.   The soil is un  like   anything   I have seen on  Vancouver Island,  or, iu   fact,  anywhere; the surface being apparently light and sandy, with a  slight clayey tendency, which retains the moisture to a  remarkable degree.     I drove for miles  and miles and never saw a sione.  The cows in the fields were up to  their knees in clover on the  ?nd  of May.     Many   of  the* larger  farms are being cut up into small  portions, antl are bringing prices  ranging from $250 to $750  ptr  acre.   Some of the old timers are  building for themselves beautiful  residences, many of them of concrete blocks, surrounded by gardens and lawns iu which   grow  flowers nnd shrubs of gtcat beauty  and   variety.     These   country  homes ate lighted by eleelriciiy  and have all the conveniences of  city homes,     The  people as I  found them arc very hospitable  und justly proud of their beautiful valley. The extending of the  H.C. Electric railway has brought  thin   iuvuicdi Apul   *,.ill.hi  four  hours' run of Vancouver, JJwheic  a ready market is found* for their  produce, and many city   people  ������nend the v}*-t-\r end in the valley.  They, sir, are the backbone of  radicalism in Canada and have  forced the government at Ottawa  to realise that their requests are  worthy of attention. Their  avowed object of democratic re-  f.rm is about as far-reaching as  the Australian labor party.  It will be noticed by  anyone  vho has read the   articles   and  speeches against reciprocity that  not a word is said in favor of the  ''consumer's,   interests���������the   ore  who pays the extra tax  of   the  tariff.   They are the nation, for  the   nation   of   every    country  dwells in the cottage, and not in  baronial castles or stately   mansions, as John Bright said in one  of his great speeches,  It is said that the West is solid  for reciprocity, and if the result  of three discussions on the question by the youug meu's clubs or  .'umberland is auy criterion it  mui-st be so, for on each occasion  I it was adjudged that the arguments in favor were the best.  Oue is struck by tne narrow  view taken by the opponents of  reciprocity.

It will not only give us  more and greater   markets,   but  what is greater still, will prove a  bond of friendship between  two  great nations and hasten   some-  w.'.at the day the immortal Burns  prophesied when he sang  k'Its coinin' yet for a' that,  An' come it shall for a' that  When man to man the world  o'er,  Shall brothers be an' a' that."
