At first  blush It would appear that there could  only be ono answer to tho question.  So huge tin animal must oxpond. a terrific amount.of energy and, therefore,  as ono might reasonably infer, must  need .more timo than smaller animals  for rest and rclnvigoration. Nevertheless many travellers and some na-  tu rails la have .asserted that the African elephant in its native stale never  sleeps, or nt least never lies down.  A correspondent who has sent photographs direct from Malek on tho  "While, Nile; says Iri! the communication that accompanies them that tho  picture "represents a herd ot female  elephants photographed ln the bush  near Malek,; in the Mogalia Province  ������t tlie Anglo-Egyptian'Soudan.

"Join It," said Drew, nervously twisting up hla moustache  Whit, Hair Made Into Violin Bow���������������  Black Onei for Variety of Put*  poses.  The subject of the preparation of  horse-hair  for  commercial purpose*  is a very attractive one, tho.procesa  being curious and very elaborate.  Th*. horse-hair arrives In balOB,  weighing about half a ton each,  and valued at $G00. The chief sources of Bupply are Great Britain. North  and South America, Australia, Germany, Russia and China.. The tails  supply the' best' hair because thoy aro  hard, tho manes being soft, and therefore of Inferior value.  The long balrs are suitable for particular purposes, but those of ordinary length aro prepared for stuffing  furniture and other upholstering work.  The hair Is first sorted over suction  screens, which draw out and carry  away the dust. Color forms tho first  aBls of classification, black, white and  grey hair being ported out, and after  this the hair is divided up, according  to its various lengths and its quality.  That which is to appear black is dyed  in logwood, washed and dried. Then  the vnrious hairs are mixed in-separate heaps, to make stuffings of various  values. After this tho material passes through a series of mixing machines or mills, provided with exhaust to  extract any dust which remains. ,  Tho hair is now spun Into ropes,  which aro again twisted on themselves, and by a third operation further  twisted into a convolute shape. They  aro then soaked in cold water for two  hours, arter which they are baked in  a temperature of over 350 degrees  Fahenheit for twelve hours. This  damp heat destroys all oacieria lifo  that might possibly exist-in the hair,  and also fixes the curl, and the ropes  are hiing up to cool for three days.  The inferior qualities are then untwisted and carded by' machinery  while the good qualities aro opened  out and carefully hand-carded.  The very finest grades cost up to  $1.75 a lb. wholesale, and as it takes  about forty pounds of hair to make  a full-sized mattress, it will be seen  that the cost1 to tho ordinary individual Is rather prohibitive.- The late  Queen Victoria was very partial to  horse-hair mattresses, and always insisted upon having the best quality of  white -horse-hair.  The longest tails come from China  and Russia. These are first disinfected, then they are dipped in a bath of  soft soap and soda, after which they  aro wet hackled to get out all the  short fur. Tho sorted hairs are discarded, being piled up on a board studded .with long plus, and drawn from  the two ends between an "old razor-  and tlie thumb to lengths of fivq, inch-  63-1  White hair, which is 30 In ches in  length and upwards Is used for violin  bows. Black hair, which is .slightly  stronger, is used for bows for double  basscs._ Shorter hair, according to'^ts  length.'Ts'tie'd" into bundles, and is  sold to brush makers or to plume  makers for ornamenting helmets and  the-bridles of cavalry horses.  Long hair is also extensively employed for weaving into hair-cloth for  upholstery, ln which a linen warp is  used, and also i������* making the cloth  which tailors use for stiffening the  garments, when it receives a warp of  cotton.  Tho official wigs of judges and -barristers aro mado from specially picked out hair, known as "dead" hair, because it has no glint' upon It.  Tho hair from tho tails of cows and  oxen Is also used for one or two purposes. The cow tails aro dreBBed  whole and undyed for export to South  Africa for the use of the native. The  natives insist on tho hair being undyed, and thoy plato it into bangles  and over snuff-boxes, ns woll as com-,  bine it with tho wire which is wound  round' sjamboks and sticks. They also uso it for threading beads.      ;  Cow hair is also drawn for weaving  into siovo bottoms, to form 'strainer.,  for cooks and gunpowder manufacturers, whilo horso-halr bags nro used  for oil and cider presses' and for brew-  ors' straining cloths.  Lastly, gouts hair from China and  Tibet, being very soft, is used lu the  manufacture of babies' brushos.  The Human Body  Accepting 134 pounds as the weight  of tho average man, we find that water aloue accounts for 3 09 pounds of  th'o whole. Every fibre and every cell  tliat enters into tho formation of the  human body is bathed in moisture,  and oven tha bones, which appear to  be so solid aro moro than half water.  That our-bodi3n are full of water is  proved by the blisters that arise after  tho Infliction of a burn. In fact, water plays a very important part in the  human anatomy, and but for' its agency the vital process would soon  cease.    * , s   \- '-"  Virtue Is Its Own Reward  Brannlgan.���������What's the matter, Wil-  likin?

Within five or six years ballooning  has found Increasing favor ln this  country as a sport There aro many  moro in Europe, but in the United  States there are now fifty or sixty  owners of balloons who own from ono  to three balloons apiece. The number  of owners is Increasing despite tbe  vastly Increased popularity -of tbo  heavier than air flying machine.  Any man .who can ufford an automobile can afford n balloon. You can  buy a ouo man balloon made of linen  and silk, with basket net and equipment of every-sort complete, for $300.  Such a balloon may weigh 120 pounds  and deflated occupies a space of about  155 by 20 by 20 inches. It can bo put  In a trunk, though commonly It Is  packed for transportation In tho basket A three passenger balloon can be  bought for $S00. lialloous may be had  of any dimension up to outfits intended to carry fifty persons, but the balloons commonly sold range from tbe  ono man carrier up to those desigued  for eight or ten. Prices depend on the  sizes of the balloons and tbe materials  of which they nro made. A double  walled balloon of rubberized cloth designed to carry eight or. ten persons  and wllh all its equipment complete  costs about $5,000.  You can't walk into a balloon manufacturer's establishment and find new  balloons of all sizes in stock. Balloons  are made only to order. But there nre  now so many men engaged iu the ballooning sport nnd so many balloons In  uso���������there are now ten times us many  private as there are professional bal-  loonlsts���������that yon may- find second  hand balloons. A man starting ballooning Is likely to buy a small one.  and then ns his interest and experience Increase he buys a bigger one.  Bnd if ho wants to he can turn in the  old ono as part payment for the new  one. . One can buy second baud balloons- wiih all equipment complete at  prices ranging from $275 up to S400  for two passenger outfits and up to  $700 for au eight passenger balloon.���������  New York Sun.

Whether this Is done or not  is merely a matter of choice. Ono  thing, however, is essential���������the bag  should bare several vents out to-the  upper side so that the pastry mty becomo brown and crisp.

To do this a pastry brush shonld be  used. !

MOBERLY  Author of  "Dan and Another," "A Tangled  Web,"    "Sin  of Alison  Deer-  tng,"   etc.,  etc.  WARD,   LOCK  & CO.,   LIMITED  London,  Melbourne and   Toronto.  (CoutiuuijiD.  "The dreadful thing was not the offer," Dorothy said, smiling in spito of  herself. "When such a good man as  Miles asks a woman to marry him, she  Bhould feel���������as I do feel���������that an honour is being done her. But iho dreadful part of it all is, that Miles���������is���������  111. Ho has been told to-day that ho  will only live another year, and lio has  asked me to bo his wife for a year."  Amazement���������and-perhaps. oven a  feeling of regret for the man sho had  known since his boyhood's days���������held  Mrs. Carstairs silent for a few seconds  and she looked incredulously at her  daughter, as though doubting her  own sense of hearing.  "And���������what havo you said?" she  managed at last to ask.  "I have begged him to give me time  to think it over. I can't give him an  answer���������until���������I have told Oliver."  "Mr. Dynecourt? Do you mean to  say, Dorothy, that you aro going to  ask him to help you to decide? You  told me you wero in no way bound to  him; it is childish to ask his advice.  What can you possibly suppose his  answer wiL be? No man would be  likely to agree to let you do what  Miles proposes."  Dorothy sighed.  "Nothing would have made me oven  flunk twice about Miles' suggestion,  but "   She paused.  "But what? Dorothy, you are too  aggravating. And if Miles wants to  help you, to help us all, why should  he insist on your marrying him? Jf  what you say is really true���������if Miles'  * lifo cannot really bo saved���������I don't  understand why he can't simply make  up his mind to leave you some money  In his will."  There was a certain callousness  about her mother which sometimes  hurt Dorothy almost like a physical  pain, and she winced now at Mrs.  Carstairs calmly spoken words.  "That was Miles' lirst thought. Anyone who knew him would know that it  would bo his lirst thought. But���������his  uncle left tlio property to him on rather strange conditions.. Miles can only will it to his wife or his children,  ^and"tono"ono_else.-"lfHio dies-unmar--  ried tho money all goes to a distant  cousin; and, becauso ho wants to  make mc a rich woman, he has asked  me to be his wife i'or a year."  "And at the end of your mourning  you could marry this Mr. Dynecourt,"  Mrs. Carstairs said excitedly. "Well,  ���������Dorothy, i really cannot sen why you.  should look "like a tragedy queen over  eucli a suggestion as this. It's a chance  that comes to vcrj* lew womeu i'or.  will have an opportunity to mako two  men happy, of becoming a licli woman, and incidentally, though i dare-  aay that point of view does not weigh  with you, you will be .able to take  your poor father and mother out of  this squalor and misery."        *,'*'<>  With tho dramatic ending of her  sentence, Mrs. Carstairs swept her  hand eloquently round the room, over  which her daughter had expended so  much of hor hard-earned money, no  much thought and cure���������tho room  which, wlmtoyer might bo said of  the rest'of the house, certainly showed no trace ot either misery or squalor.  "But no doubt you will let somo tlro-  fiomo Hcruplo stand in the way of  your giving us such practical help,"  alio added fretfully, .sinking back  amongst her pillows,  "It was only tho thought of all I  could do i'or you and father, and tho  thought that I could mako tho last  year of Milei.' llfo happy, tliat hindered mo from saying 'no' to him directly," Dorothy said, a look ot pain in  hor Rwoot oyen; "would it'really make  you happy If���������I���������agreed to do ad ho  ���������asks?"  "Would It mako mo happy? My  dear Dorothy, your questions aro no  childish an to bo ulinoHt. foolish, How  can you atdc mo anything so absurd?

No. 182.  point to a peroration, would have  seemed to her an absurdity outside  the power of understanding, and, looking at her mother's tear-stained face.  a great compunction smote her. Sho  suddenly wondered whether she ought  to hesitate to accept Miles' offer. Was  hor hesitation more selfishness? Was  she putting the thought of herself before every other consideration, and  shrinking from what would make so  many others happy, because of t*_e  cost to her of that one year of married  life? Sho rose with au ..r.iietuosity  foreign to her nature.  "1 can't do this thing without tolling Olivor," she said abruptly, "although'ho and I arc not bound to ouo  another, 1 must consult him. It would  not be fair to say 'yes' to Miles without asking Oliver about it."  "Vou arc toolishly over-conscientious and scrupulous," ,her mother answered, "and, of course, you wiH go  your own way in this, as in everything else. And if It is all to depend  on Mr. Dynecourt, I give up all hope  at once. No man would agree to such  a bargain. No man is unselfish enough  to look at it from any other point of  view but his own."  "Oliver will look at il from the very  highest point of view," Dorothy answered with that superb bolief in the  man she loved which is t\ e prerogative of every truo woman: "but I  must ask him first, and if���������he thinks  I am justified in saying 'yes' to Miles  ���������then for Miles' sake r.nd for yours  ���������I shall do what he asks."  "God bless you, my dear child,"  Mrs. Carstairs exclaimed fervently,  her dramtic instinct onco more carrying all before it, "ask Mr. Dynecourt  to come here and talk ic over with  you���������perhaps even in these wretched  lodgings Ave could manage to get a  dinner not quite impossible to put before him, and I would make an effort  to get up for the evening."  A faint smile hovered for au instant  over the younger woman's lips; she-  was sufficiently acquainted with her  mother's methods to know * that it'  Oliver Dynecourt spent an evening  with them in their lodgings, Mrs. Carstairs would contrive to speak a few  words to him, and would" use all the  arts of which she was mistress, to  bias the young surgeon in the desired-  direction. And it was no part of  Dorothy's intention that Oliver should  be so biassed. That which slie wished to get from him wras his free  and, unbiassed opinion, and she proposed to iake the straightforward, if  somewhat unconventional, course of  going to him herself ask for it.  Perhaps she had not fully realised  all that her determination would involve, until she sat next morning beside the table in Dynecourt's sunll  waiting-room, idly turning over .he  papers, and trying to fix hor attention on paragraphs whose lines all  seemed to run together in one bewildering blur. What she had come to do  seemed a thousand tfmes more difficult now that she was actually on the  spot_.thai__._v. heri_.sh._e _liad___ bought ____j_  over in cold blood; and moro tiiiyi  once she half rose, preparatory to  fleeing from the house, feeling that  flight was her only possibility.  "But it's no uso running away. I  have made jxp my mind I am going to  do it, and I will do it," she said to herself at last. "It wouldn't be 'playing  the game' not to consult Oliver;" and  with a littlo smile at the recollection  of,,the phrase of those youthful days,  when she and Miles had played cricket together, she sat down again and  stared at a picture in Punch with an  expression of ��������� interest she was far  from feeling.  "Dorothy���������you! " Tho words broko  from Dynecourt's lips directly the  parlourmaid had closed tho door of  the consulting-room behind the visitor  and the surgeon, -flinging tc tho  winds* the ceremonious manner ho had  been prepared to adopt for a new patient, came quickly to her side and  drew her towards him,  "Why  didn't you  send    in    your  namo?" ho asked.

H o u s 1 o y,  Greenville,  Tennessee,  writes:  "Five years  ago I took a  very severe  cold which  resulted in  la grippo. I  never was  so bad off. I  was in bed  several  weeks, and  when I did  get up I bad  tonsil ftis  and sore  throat.  "I tried to euro this for eighteen  months, but it gradually got worse. A  doctor advised me to have my tonsils  cut out, but I did not Uko tho idea.  Another doctor examined me, and told  me the samo thing. I finally got a bottle of Peruna, and aftor I had taken  one bottle' my throat was better. I  bought and used a dozen bottles, and  saw I was going to get well, and I did."  Mr. W. H. Housley.  FATTED  SHEEP  Tails of the Syrian Breed Weigh Ten  to Fifteen Pounds  It has been suggested that in tho  sheep-fattening process, which is common in the vicinity ot Damascus, one  might bo able to traco tho original  meaning of the Biblical phrase, "Uio  t'atted calf." ^Irs. Mcintosh thus describes tbe process in her book, "Damascus";  "The sheep differ from ours. When  we show pictures of tho latter to the  natives thoy ask what animals thoy  are. They miss the enormous tails of  ihe Syrian sheep, In which tho fat of  tho body seems to concentrate, and  whicli, after skinning and preparing,  often weigh ten to fifteen pounds.  "Early in the summer the head of  each family buys or sets apart one,  two or three sheep, according' to his  rank in life of bis wealth. The women  and children devote themselves with  great zeal to fattening these sheep.  The children fill largo baskets with  mulberry leaves and carry them to  th"eii'-~moth"ers~-"-Tiiese--severaK-tin"ies  a day and also in tho night tako little  wooden stools and sit up by the sheep;  With ono hand tl.ey keep the sheep's  mouth open; with the other they cram  in the leaves, forcing them down ths  throat,  "Twice a day the sheep are led to  tlie village fountain to drink," and their  coats aro frequently washed. About  tho end of September tho work of tlio  women and children comes to an end.  Tho sheep bave grown so fat they cannot stand up. they aro then killed.  Their flesh is boiled, with spices, and  put into pots for winter use. The  mincemeat is eaten as a relish a I festivities."  A Hint for Hubby  They lived in one of those new garden suburbs, where everyone loves his  neighbor, and tbe green grass -grows  greener, and the houses ar w.hlte and  red. The great scandal of the moment  in that particular suburb was the story  that'a newly married lady had ruthlessly hurled a plate at her hubby,  because he had ventured in error to  sit upon her now hat. Mrs. Nextdoor  was as flabbergasted at the tale as  anyone, and drew, her own husband's  attention to the matter.  ' He placed his faco nearer to"that of  his wife���������they bad not.been married  very long, cither���������as she remarked*  tenderly:  "I could never throw anything at  you, could I. pettle, however crossly  it had mado me."  "No, ducky, I am sure you couldn't.  You wouldn't if you could, and 1 am  certain you'll nover try." .  "Of courso I couldn't, Jack." replied  his better half. "You see, I haven't  got a new hat for you to sit on."  A Hard-Luck Story  , An actor who was stranded in Seattle and wanted to get to San Francisco  finally managed to secure a second-  class steamship ticket. The voyage  lasted almost three days. The first  day the actor slept nearly all day In  order to keep from getting hungry, as  he didn't have a cent. The second day  he couldn't sleep any more and had  a hard time of It. On the third day he  couldn't stand the pangs of hunger  any longer, so ho went down to the  dining-room and ordered tho best  meal he could g&t. All tlie while he  was eating it, he saw visions of the  San Francisco jail, with himself occupying a cell. However, he thought  he might as well be gamo, so, calling  tho waiter, he asked jauntily: "How  much do 1 owe you, my friend?" And  the waiter replied: "Not a cent, sir.  Your meals are included in your ticket."  Whence the "Grass Widow"  To give positively, the origin of the  expression "grass widow',' appears to  be impossible. The authorities do not  agree on this point.. One contends  tbat a woman who said to her friends  that her husband "had gone to grass"  following a separation is entitled to  the credit of coining the expression.  Our writers have attempted to find  an explanation of it in the French-  word -grace" to signify a widow by  courtesy, ln tlie Scandanavian languages tlio .prefix "grass" being in  common use, others have conjectured  that it comes from the word "grading" meaning greedy; this signifying  a woman who longs for tho husband  who is gone.

King of Prussia, reached r.t one time  to such a height that, as Baron By  field was informed on good authority,  the monarch s conceived the very singular design of gratlfyingtit in a duel.  King George mado a choice of Brigadier Sutton for his second, and the  King of Prussia of Colonel" Derschau,  The.territory of* Hilderschelm' was  picked on for tho meeting. His Britannic Majesty was then at Hanover,  and His Prussian Majesty had come  as far as Salzdahl, near Brunswick.  Baron Borclc, tho Prussian Minister  at London, and later dismissed from  the court in a very abrupt manner,  having repaired to the King, his master, at Salzdahl, found him in such a  violent passion that ho did not think  it advisable directly to oppose his design, but to gain time feigned to approve of the extraordinary combat  which His Majesty meditated, and he  even offered to carry the challenge.  The challenge was not sent. Ministers on both sides gained time, tho  choler of both parties evaporated, and  tho following year the quarrel was  made up.  Here's tlie biggest  can of easy-shining. \.  stove polish oil the  market.  Reasonable Request  It was a cold night. Tho traveller  inquired at the only hotel in the littlo  town if he could be lodged for the  night, ��������� but was informed that it was  full up.  "But you must give me some sort  of accommodation," said the stranger.  "Surely you don't want me to sleep  under the starry, but chilly skies?"  "Well," said the proprietor, the best  wo can do is to mako you up a bed  in the passage and curtain it off for  you."   And so it was arranged.  ln the dark watches of the night tho  traveller awoke. A freezing draught  chilled him and the sheet which had  been hung up as a partition was blowing merrily in the.breeze. The traveller roso and shouted for the landlord.  . "What is.it?" queried a voice from  the stairhead.  "Please," said the stranger timidly,  "may I have a sheet of pins to lock  my bedroom door with?"

Immense'Structure-Will  .Unite   the
Cities of Edmonton and Strathcona ���
������- N6xt'torttio"rebuilding-of -the La-
chlne Bridge at Montreal; the largest
bridge construction worl: being done
by-the C. P. Ry. at--present ��� is tha
erection of a large high level bridge
at Edmonton; Alta. Since August,.,
1910,-..Uie railway lias been at work
on tho big construction -which wlU-be-
foro many months span the Saskatchewan river from side to side and unite
the cities of Edmonton and Strathcona
in a-Greater Edmonton. The'-new
bridge will be';2,80l) feet long and 200
feet above water level, and will cost
over $1,500,000.. There will, be two
decks, the upper for "the earryfng of
the Canadian Pacific tracks and street
railway tracks,,and the lower deck for
passenger and vehicular traffic. John
B. Gunn & Sons, of Winnipeg, were
awarded the contract for tho substructure and commenced the work of excavating tlio pier foundations, in August, 1910: When tho rU-er was frozen
over, cofferdams were built, and the
two main piers' in mid' stream wero
raised abovo. water level before the
ice was broken up in the spring. Night
and day shifts wero employed in ordor
to accomplish this end. Foundations
for all the piers wero excavated last
year and tbis yoar the concrete work
was commenced.
In oxcavating for the largest,pier
on the north side -of tho" bridge thousands of cubic, feet of earth were re-
"moved. It was necessary to cut
through a scain-of coal soven feet in
thickness. This coal was found to'be
31 fairly good quality and as excavated
was'used for fuel for the engines operating the dorricks. The thousands
of cubic yards of graver used were
dredged from tho river bed and .washed by a plant'located at,the scone of
operation.- The. substructure of the
bridge" was completed Iii August last
year. ��� .    -    ' *
When completed the bridge will be
supported by thirty-two piers and pedestals. ��There are.four large central
piers 138 feet high. - The central piers
are twenty feet square at the base.
The C.P.R. Vlll occupy the centre of
the bridge and on either- side will run
the street railway. Forty feet belou
tho level of the tracks will be the t.af-
fie deck of the bridge with a roadw.'.y
23 feet wide aiid an eight foot.bidf*
walk on each side,. As,a result of th-.
building of the new bridge the Edmonton street railway will sa.e 405,
miles per day in the run between Edmonton and Strathcona; as the distance saved between the two points
by tho erection of .the new bridge is
one and one-eighth miles.
.By a coincidence the. point chosen
.by tlie Canadian Pacific Railway far
its, new-bridge'which will give their
trains entrance to Edmonton by-the
south is exactly at the point -where
lay,the oldest and easiest ford across
.the Saskatchewan River, in tho olden
days.���In- a--few~m6nths___time, giant-
locomotives, street cars and automobiles will glide over the Saskatchewan
Valley high .in tbe air on this most
modern substitute for the old ford
