Many mon would" Hko to send their  nons^to collego and then set them up  rtii farms of tholr owu, but thoy are  not financially able to do so, nnd oven  If tliey wero It might be the worst  thing possible for the boys. Tho 'best  plan, ns-mnny fn thurs huvo found out,  Is to help tho boy to help himself nnd  keep him -so busy and with so much  money flowing into bis pockot ns to  drive out nil thoughts of deserting tho  farm, snys tho Country Gentleman.  Some mny lmvo taken up tho.plan  of allowing tholr boys Io tnke in flocks  of sheep on shares, merely going security for them whon necessary, but putting thorn beyond this entirely on  their own resources. There is no surer  way of building up ������ rundown farm  or ono not largo euough to support  much slock than by getting on u lot  of sheep ns winter boarders. The fertility counts year by year, nnd while  tho boy is kept out of mischief tbo  farm Is steadily growing in valuo.  Then thero nro other fathers who  encourage tho boys to take up winter  work in the shape of tesiclilng the district school, working In tho barn !of n  neighbor who has much stock and little help to tako care of St, buying poultry for somo dealer or any one of si  dozen occupations thut pay fairly well  for a young man's time. Teaching the  district school loaves little timo to help  with the farm chores, but the farmer  is relieved of tho worry of lhe boy  wanting to leavo the farm, and school  will bo out. in the spring In lime for  the active farm work, so that what  the boy makes is almost clear money.  Boarding town horses is another industry open, to hoys and one thut is  not hard work. Tho feed musj; be  bought, and tho horses given regular  mid intelligent'euro, but it doesn't  tako very long to look after n dozeu  ��������� horses and keep thorn in good condi-  lion.' Thero is always the chicken  business to fall bn-'k on, nnd an enterprising lad can put In a winter flock  that will more tbiiu pay for itself in  eggs nnd then can sell tho liens for  nlmost as *much ns they cost when  spring comes.

'Because  there aro lorgo; areas of land in tho  north on which there-Is .timber of  some kind, tho conclusion is reached  lint.lt is all of prosont value and that  tlie country has an-unlimlted supply.  As a matter of, fact a careful inspection of tho timber along tho line of  tlio Hudson Bay Railway mado iu tho  years 1910 and 1911. by- th'o Forestry  Branch of the Department of tho Interior, shows that ther is not enough'  mature timber along tho ltfto of that  railway to build--t.ho road. Thero aro  no prairie districts of any oxtent along  die route, there aro trees everywhere,  but owing to repeated tiros the forest  13, oxc^pt on tho nearest fraction pf  the area, too small for commercial purposes and unless it can be protected fronyfiro until it reaches .maturity, will."novor be of any use to the  country. Explorations in other-parts  of the northern forested districts* tell  the same tale. Everywhere flro has  worked havoc, and tho forest is a  inero wreck of what it might havo  been if fires could be prevented. And  unless adequate measures aro taken  now" to protect young and immature  forests which form tho major part  of tho stand, the outlook for tho future is none too good.  If the northern forests are to continue to be a permanent source of  wealth to the country, it-is absolutely  necessary that he fire ranging system should be extended and that proper methods of management of tho  forest should be applied, and public  education to the value' of the forest  ls oven more necessary.-  In Sweden, which-has large exfenfs  of northern forest, practically 'uniii-  ,liabited.__siiniIai-J_o---thoso_in--nort!iorn-  Canada, has about eliminated tbe fire  danger in such districts mainly by educating her pooplo to the value of the  forests.

LUMBER WASTE (OR PULPWOOD  Practical   Economy   and   Utilization  of Wood Waste Is,Urged by  Forestry Department  For tho purposo of manufacturing  tlio four hundred and seventy-five  thousand tons of wood pulp produced  in Canada in. 1910 nothing was uspd  except logs of various species, which  as our timber supply decreases are  becoming valuablo for lumber and  othor uses. No slabs or othor sawmill wasto was reported as being converted into wood pulp, by neglecting  which practice, Canada is losing greatly. During 1909 in tho United States  six per cent, of (ho total pulpwood consumption wns from Blabs and mill  trimmings. If economy had boon  practiced to the sumo extent In Canada  during tho year 1910. as much pulp  might lmvo boon produced as from  thirty-six thousand cords ot' wood and  not ono pulp log need havo been cut.  This would havo mado twenty por  cent, moro pulp than Nova Scotia produced iu iDio.      ,:������������������  Looking at tlio subject from another view.point tho "Bojn might have  beon lynch greater. Over ono-half of  tho five billion foot of lumber cut ln  ,1910 passed .through mills at, centres  of large population whoro tho slab  waste of ono-half cord to every thousand feet of lumbor might havo boen  saved from tho incinerators. One  cord of pulpwood will produce at least  one-half ton of pulp so- that one and  a quarter million cords of slabs obtained would havo produced- at? the  lowest estimate six hundred-and  twenty-five thousand tons of pulp produced in Canada ih 1910. Tho sooner  such practical economy and utilization of wood wasto commences tho  longer will Canada havo au adequate  supply of pulpwood.

Japanese Dentistry  Japanoso native dentists conduct  their business In a manner which  would undoubtedly cause any European practitioner to open his oyes in.  tmazemont. Tho victim is seated on  tho ground, tho dcntUt bends over  him, and forcos his left hand between  the patient's jaws, In such a manner  that tho mouth cannot possibly bo  closed. Then ho grasps tho doomed  tooth between tho thumb and forefinger of tho right hand, and with ono  deft wrench removes it and throws  It upon tU������ ground.  So great Is tho skill of theso nnliva  dentists that many of them aro ablo  to romovo -six or seven teeth a  minute. Indeed, their skill is hardly  to bo wondered at, whon ono considers the course of preparatory training they aro obliged to undergo.  A number of holes nro bored In a  stout pin ilk, and this ia fixed firmly  to tlio ground, ln tho holes aro  driven wooden pegs, and the ������������������ ���������would-  be dentist has to extract them with  his lingers without dislodging tho  board. This process is repeated with  a board of pino wood, and llnally with  ono of oak, and it is only whon ho  has succeeded in extracting tho pegs  from tho oak plank that the.Japanese  considers himself qualified to practice upon liis follow men.  ���������H^/iiiiii M''E^itF:E>i*S?  trill atep that iplitting htaimht quick ant? sure.

DOU'T LET THAT BOUGH  ROB YOSJ OF SLEEP  You probably know nil too v.-i-!I  how it goes. Just as you doze off, the  tickling starts in your throat. A gentle  cough, still asleep. A harder cough, and  then another. First thing you know,  vou're wide awake, coughing your head  ofT.  A few nights of that and you're so  worn out and weakened that the cough,  takes a tight grip on you. ������������������  But why endure it?  Na-Dru-Co Syrup of Linseed, Licorice and Chlorodyne will soothe that  exasperating tickling, loosen the phlegm  and cure the inflammation of tbe. mucous  rno-nbrane. It not only stops Hiccough  quickly, allowing you to get sound, refreshing sleep, but it goes to the root of  the trouble and drives out tht-cold completely. Children ���������willingly take Na-  Dru-Co Syrup of.Linseed, Licorice and  Chlorodyne,, because it tastes so good.  Your Druggist has it or can quickly get  It for you in 2**c. and 50c. bottles.

" A  man's reputation is a large part of  his capital. Th*** business man must  have a good name or bis business will  not prosper.  A good, nail*-! is an essential thing  for a young man wbo goes out to find  a business open*ng. If his good name  is gone, who will employ him? When  one's reputation is tarnished his influence is gon<v When the good name  of an innocent person is soiled by the  tongue of slander, most peoplo will  say it is a natural occurrence which  could not b-j avoided" and some will  say it is a strange providential visitation. It Is no: aiwa.s so. Sometimes  it is a clear ease of giving that which  is holy to tho dogs.  If young peoplo were prudent and  careful to n->oid liio appearance of  evil they migy. as a rule, escape tho  shame and humiliation of a bad name.  Hut they are not always prudent. Thoy  are often found in nlaees where they  ought not to be. They often go into  company whkh awaKens suspicion.  If they are warned of tho danger, they  scoff at tho~wanUn_��������� and defy public  sentiment. Thoy arc not afraid. They  may be innocent, but they aro not  prudent.  A good name, which has been handed down through many generations  without a spot, is worth guarding  with scrupulous caie. "Give not that  which is holy to the dogs.".

Of course, it is of the utmost  importance to jewellers, and, inasmuch as slight differences have iiith-  t>rto existed iu the estimation of this  delicate weight, an effort is making,  particularly under the initiative of  Belgium, to bring about tho adoption  of an international standard carat.  The weight proposed is.,200 milligrams. ' It has been customary in  English-speaking countries to reckon  n' carat as equal to I!.2, grains. ; The  i uncertainty of the original measure  j is indicated by the derivation of the  word from the Greek word for the  fruit of the carob.

Pedestrians 'gave the wheelbarrow and the  boy n wide berth, lloth men and women knew tlmt no-more deadly combination existed, while - younger - and  smnller folks had something yet to  learn. ���������  Up near the corner was nn oldish  man leaning against the fence as lie  "TRIED TO OIUITLE ME, DID SOU?"  surveyed n vacant house with a to  rent sign on the door, lie wns wonder-  fl'lng bow many rooms the bouse contained, and whether it wns haunted,  when Humpy Skinner noticed hlrn and  tried nn experiment. -He shut his eyes  tightly and tried to seo how near ho  could como to the man's heels with  his ���������wheelbarrow, lie hnd n distance of  forty feet to go, and bo managed matters so well that be ran tho wheel  plump against the leaning man nnd  knocked his legs out from under him.  "By jingo, but whnt aro you tryiug  io do?" shouted tbe man as he struggled up.  Repelled by Wheelbarrow.  "I thought I would seo how near 1  could graze yon," wns the calm reply,  "Oh/you did. ch? Then you willfully,-  deliberately nnd maliciously ran that  Infernal thing ngainst my legs ln  tho hope of crippling me for llfo, did  you? Boy, lemmo get hold of you  once!"  Dut Humpy drew buck with tho  wheelbarrow nnd stood ready to repel  nn nssnult, nnd tho man nibbed his  left leg and continued:   ,  "Are you such a lunkhead that you  don't know thut n wheelbni'row ls nn  Infernal ninchino? Vou hnvo no right  running It on the sidewalk, Begone  .with It boforo I got my pnws on you!  Tho idoa of turning n boy of your ngo  loose to malm and crlpplo uud slaughter!"     .

It was a great temptation to Humpy  He had sucked eggs before, and his  A-dnufs apple worked up and down as  be remembered how speedily and satisfactorily the yolks had slipped down  his throat aud brought complacency  to him for an hour afterward. That  was before he had ever started to run  a wheelbarrow on the sidewalk, however! Now ho somehow felt that egg  sucking was a boyish trick and fnr  beneath his dignity.

As it was, there was something so  menacing nboitt things that he turned  and fled ere the barrow was within  ten feet of him. Humpy uttered n  wnrwhoop aud pursued, and eggs and.  soap were scattered on the sidewalk,  No living man or boy can push a  wheelbarrow very far in a stralght-  llne; uo matter how slow his pace.  When ho comes to a run his courso Is  like.,a rail fence. In going a block  [lumpy tickled (lie legs of hnif n  dozen men, almost ran Into three trees  nnd scared a grocer's horso into a runaway, but his ardor didn't abate until  he struck a fat man and brought him  down -with a great crash.  Talk From the Fat Mniy  A cobbler, ran out of his shop and  seized lhe boy and tlie harrow- until it  could be ascertained whether tho fat  man had been killed on the spot or  only crippled for life, ll was two minutes before the question was decided.  Then (Tie fat man rose up und began  lo talk, lie called I lumpy Skinner  about a hundred bnd names. lie  threatened him with over 200 kluds of  punishment, lie abused his father and  vowed he would never take his hat on!  to his mother, and the way he did rip  that old Avhcelbarrow up the back put  a new wabble in tlie wheel.  "I don't know what this is all about,"  said Humpy when the fat man had  finally got out of breath.  "But yoir run him ober mit" dot  wheelbarrer!" exclaimed the, cobbler.  "How could I help it? Haven't I a  right to chase n boy with my own  wheelbarrow?"  "Maybe, so, but haf you some rights  to run a fat man ovor?"  "But be got in tlio way.   When lio  "s^"Tne^oinlF^^Ti^drdn"t_Hirclimir  a fence or dodge into a store?"  "Hear the cold blooded villain talk!"  groaned the victim. "Why, boy! why-  why"-   .  Dog Was Unsuspecting.  And then he swelled up again and  grow red hi the face nnd gasped for  brenth and could sny no more. Tho  cobbler went to put him on the buck  and lend him Into a sewing 'machine  shop.where now and secondhand machines were sold on tbe installment  plan, and Hunfliy took advantage of  the occasion to mnko his escape.  Ho was sobered up n littlo ns lie-  passed ou, but only for a short time.  Ho saw a largo dog standing on the  corner while Its' master was ln tlio  drug store to get something for a cold  In tbo head. Tho dog wus looking  across tho street nt n red headed boy,  who was washing a store window,  nnd ho hadn't tho slightest idea tbut  his llfo wus in peril. No sooner had  Humpy caught sight c*f tho cnnlno  thnn ho had u plnn.

Thu creature ia  death itself, and carries in its bead  the secret of destroying life villi tho  concentrated agony of a*I the poisons.  Tho Echls carinata is tolerably  common iu India, boiii*.'. found in  nearly every part of the j-guiinst'ia.  Fortunately, however, for mans it  is not, liko the.cobra, a house-frequenting snake; for its aggressive  habits would make It infinitely more  fatal toJife than its dreaded relative.  This kind of snake docs riot turn  to escape from man as the cobra will,  or' flash into concealment- like the  koriat but keeps the path agauist its  human assailant, pitting its own  eighteen inches of length against its  enemy's bulk, challenges ami provokes cuiiliot.  A stroke with a whip will cut it iu  two, or a clod of earth disable it; bin  such is its malignity that it will invite attack by every device at its  command, staking us otv,*s life on the  mere chance of its adversary coming  within the little circcle of its power.  At most, the radius of this circle is  twelve inches. Within il, at any  point, lies certain death, and on the  bare hopo of hand or foot trespassing  within its reach, the Eehis throws its  body Into a figure-of-eight coil. Then  it attracts attention by rubbing- its  loops together,-' which, from the  roughness of the scales, makes a  rustling, hissing sound, erects its head  in the centre, and await attack.  It is said that no one, having once  encountered this terrible reptile, can  ovor forget its horrifying aspect when  thus aroused, its eagerly aggressive  air, its restless coils, which, in eon-  tant. motion one over the other and  rutling ominously till the while, stealthily but suroly bring it 'nearer and  nearer to tlie object of its fury.

COLD SORES AND ULCERS ARE  HEALED BY ZAM-BUK .  Cold sores, chapped'hands,'ulcers,  and winter eczema are common troubles jusl. now. aud i'or all these, Zaui-  Buk will be found the surest and  quickest remedy. Sometimes cold  sores arise from . chilblains on tho  toes or fingers, and in the former  case whore colored socks arc worn,  there is a danger of blood-poisoning  from the dye. Zam-Buk being so powerfully antiseptic removes tho danger  as soon as applied and quickly heals.  JIr. W. .1. Halliday, at Ash Grove,  Ont., says: "I had iny little finger  frozen, and it cracked al the first  joint, causing a bad sore, which dis-  cliarged freely and would not heal.  The pain was very bad, and the whole  of my hand became swollen and in  bad shape.  "A friend advised me to try Zam-  Bnk. and I soon found that Zam-Buk  was altogether different, to any  preparation I had ever tried. In a  very short time it. healed the sore."  Miss Lillie May, of Stoney Creek,  Out., says: "A few weeks since, several nasty, disfiguring cold sores suddenly broke out on my lips, which became much swollen. Seeing my condition a friend advised me to try Zam-  Buk and, leave all other preparations  aside. This I did. and was much  pleased, after a few applications of  thisbalni to sej* everysore healed/'  "Zam-Buk will also" be found a sure  cure for eczema, blood:poison, varicose sores, piles, scalp sores, rlng-  tlons and chapped places, cuts, burns,  lions and chapped places, cuts, burns,  bruiser, and skin injuries generally.

A delightful concoction'  known as a tart proved to be put'f-  pasto made with alum, with a jelly  centre dyed Avilh coal-tar. The article goes on to say: "So little baking  powder is used in some homes thai,  this product would seem comparatively unimportant. But a great deal of  baking powder, however, is used in  the bought cake, and biscuits, and a  great deai of this is adulterated."  The adulteration may be by ammonia,  which is fraudulent but. not injurious,  or by alum, which is decidedly injurious, as it hardens the tissues of the  mucous membranes. As a precaution,  look at label and see if ingredients  are stated. Better refuse it if alum or  something that looks like-alum (such  as alumina) is one or* them, or if the  ingredients are not slated by the manufacturer it will be well to select  some other brand.
