or for a liniment for the pain, and

Summer   Idyl.
A humbld bGy. with a
Shining pail.
Went gladly singing
Adown the dale
To where the cow with
The brindle tail
On clover her palate did
A humble bee did
Gayly sail
Far over the soft and
Shadowy vale. <
To where the boy with
The shining pail
Was milking the cow
With the brindle tail.
The bee lit down on tho
Cow's left ear; <
Her heels flew up through
The atmosphere,
And through the leaves of
A chestnut tree
The boy soared into
Eternity. —Lift.

Alas, for that unhappy land,;

Between the Chinaman and Russ
You're in a most unpleasant muss; .'
It's pretty sure to grow much wuss,
The bear is sniffing at your heels,

Why  Moot   Cooks  Alwayn   Stir Tlioia-
Cutter  One Way  Only.
"Take a good lump of fresh butter
and roll it in flour, place it in a,Iined
saucepan with a half pint of good, rich
cream, stir it gently over a low fire, always the same way, till it begins to
simmer." ' ,    '
This_reeipe for the making of melted
butter is quoted from an old fashioned
cookery-book of a century ago, but the
direction to stir "always the. same
way" is observed as religiously today
as it was then, and probably will be for
a thousancL-years to come.
All, cooks of all nations stir not only
the same way, but also from east to
west^ a sure indication that the practice originated with sun worshipers.
-Speaking of stirring brings to mind
that in most English households—coun-'
try ones at least—tho jiractice of the
whole family joining to stir the Christmas plum pudding is still in vogue.
There are "many peculiar, old fashioned superstitions connected ' with
For instance, in Scotland, when oatcakes are being,baked, it is still customary to break off a little piece and
-throw it into the lire. >■
At one time, whenever a baking was
made—which was perhaps once a
month only—a cake was made with
nine knobs on it. Each of* the company
broke one off, and.' throwing it behind
him, said) "This I give to thee; preserve
thou my sheep," mentioning "the name
of a noxious animal—fox, wolf or eagle.
A roast pheasant is usually sent up
with the tail feathers. This practice is
a memorial of the daj'S when a peacock-was skinned* before roasting andJ
when cooked was sewed'into its plumage again, its beak gilded-and"so served.
Tossing the pancake is another, inter-i,
esting food superstition'. Formerly-the
master of the house was always called
upon to toss the Shrove Tuesday >pan-t
cake. Usually he did "it so clumsily
that the contents of the pan found their
way to the floor, when a fine -was demanded' by the cook. The custom is
still kept, up at Westminster school,
.where a pancake is tossed over the bar
and * scrambled for. The, one who secures it is rewarded with a guinea.
The origin of-the cross on'hot cross
biins is a matter; of dispute. ;There is
httle doubt' that cakes partly divided
into fouT quarters wore' made long be-
"foro the Christian era. At one time it
was believed that bread baked on Good
Friday -would never grow moldy, and
a piece of it grated was kept in every
house, being (supposed .to be a'sovereign* remedy for almost* any kind of
ailment to which man is subject. •.*"'

! A-iicient   Ecd<i.
In ancient- times the bods we read
about were simply rugs, skins or thin
mattresses which could be. rolled up
and carried away in the morning. At
night they wore spread on the floor,
which in the bettor class of houses
was of tile or plaster, and as the shoes
were not worn in the house and the'
feet were washed before entering a
room the floors were cleaner than
ours. After a time a sort of, bench,
three feet wide, was built around two
or three sides of the room about a
foot above the floor and,,covered with
rii soft cushion, was used during the-
day to sit or lounge on and as a sleeping place at night. The bench was
sometimes made like a settee, movable
and of carved wood or ivory.—London

The young man who had spent his
efforts for several years without result in studying art was talking with
his practical uncle, who had patiently

"Of course," said the'young artist,
"I know I haven't made much of a go
of it, but I don't thmk you ought to advise me to try. something else. You
know it's best to put all your eggs in
one basket and watch that basket."
"Um! That may be, Charlie; but did
you ever think how foolish it is to put
so many baskets around one bantam
egg?"—Youth's Companion.

' We understand that Major'Callahan

NE day last month a staving
good looking girl named Miss
Harris took ah office in our
sky scraper and set up type-
writing. Prom tho moment I saw her
1 felt that my fate was scaled. Her
woman's heart must have' told her of
my fe.clings, and L found .encouragement in 'her blushes and downcast
looks. For three days I humped my
elevator up. and down with my heart
fluttering like a wounded crow', and
then I determined to know my fate.
With' the courage of a Kid McCoy going irito battle ,1 entered her room and
stood before her and began:
"Miss Harris, you must have seen—
you' can't  help   but  have   sawn—your,|
own feelings have surely told you that -

I stopped there to get breath and to
see if my hair was.parted in the mid- !
die, and Miss Harris rose up and took !
me by the ear and led me to the door j
and said:
"Bubby, it is time you went home to
your ma and your trundle bed." |
"I  went back' to  my  elevator  in a
dazed condition'.   The world seamed/to j
be going round with me.    I had been

"Forty-eight or  forty-nine,  Sam mis, '

""My dear," remonstrated Younghus-

and looking at the contents of the dish
his wife had set before him, '*you have
given me this same breakfast food every morning for a month. Are you
never going to let up on the infernal

before I came to myself again and realized the insult, and then—then—*
Next day I went up to room No. 402
'to see old Mr. Thomas. I asked him
if the steam pipes in his room 'were all
'right, and if he was all right, and if he
was satisfied' .with the paper on, ,the
walls, and finally got around to speak
'of 'Miss Harris. When I had finished
he thought for awhile aird then said:
■"I had already ^observed, Sammis.
that .she was young and'good looking,
and I had wondered if it was not my
but when the .throbbings of his love
are laid to apple''cores or other indigestible things no one can blame him if
ho thirsts, for human life. A week
from that date, just before the -noon
hour, three old men. each one of whom
wanted to' be a father 'to tlie false
hearted Miss nan-is. met hi her room.
They breathed hard and glared at one
another.. They clinched their lists, and
.their hair curled. They called , each
other traitors and hypocrites and liars,
aud I walked in■ and gleefully exclaimed: ' '  , -
"Behold the ■ 'false ,, jade, who has

level best to gather them in. We know
of no reason 'why an editor should let
a good thing get past him.
There are seven-'shyster lawyers in
this town, all of whom get a living by

duty to assume a fatherly attitude toward' her. After what you have just
said I think it is. I will have a bouquet for her tomorrow, and 1 will send
it in by you with my compliments."
Two hours later I went to room No.
300 to see Mr. Griscom. He is also an
old man with paternal feelings. He is
the agent of the grindstone trust, but
he has no gritty feelings toward humanity. When I had told him that for
aught I knew* Miss Harris might be a
lone orphan and struggling against
selfishness of the world the tears start-
. ed to his eyes and he replied:
"Sammis, you are a boy with a
heart, and such sentiments as you express do j'ou infinite credit. I will let
Miss Harris know that there is at least
one person in this cold world who sympathizes with her in her struggles for
existence, and if I can smooth the path
for her it shall be done. With this dollar you will buy a bouquet and present
it in my name. In doing so you will
casually mention the fact that 1 am a
widower, with an income of $1.00'per
.week. Don't fail to get in the per,
My third call was at room No. 00-L
Old Mr. Taylor didn't receive me in a
fatherly spirit at first. Some one had
told him that I bad called him an old
masher, and of course his feelings
had been hurt. I soon made tbat all
right, however, and then held up the
case of the new typewriter to his attention. His interest was instantly
awakened. The top of his bald head
began to blush and his chin to quiver,
and when I had ended my peroration
he pounded on the desk with his fist
and replied:
"Sammis, I am not a man with a
heart of stone, though I represent a
flint glass company. As you say Miss
Harris is young and beautiful. She is
also innocent and unsophisticated. She
needs an adviser, a sympathizer—it
fact, a father. My heart tells me thai
I should be a sort of father to her."
"But it's an infernal insult, all the
same, and I will begin tomorrow

They fell. They clawed and bit,and
kicked and pulled hair, aud everybody'-
on that floor rushed in to see. and the
'girl'who had .coquetted with 'my, feci- ;

for the.next week to repair damages. ■
Mr. Rasher, the agent, called me down '
to his office to say: < ■ j
."Sammis, I can't blame you for feel- |
ing thus when you are thrown down, i
but you must remember tbat we are
in this .thing for the money and can't (
afford to carry vacant offices."' j
It is far from my wish to drive cash :
paying tenants away from this' sky
scraper or to be on bad terms with
any of the occupants, but let it be understood that I have feelings that cannot be lightly toyed with. Whenever
any one tries it let him beware of the
revenge of Sammis, the elevator boy.

Toronto, July, , 6.—(Special)—In
these days when the dreaded Bright's
Disease seems to be selecting its victims at1 will the report of^an authen-'
ticated cure is received with relief by
all classes of the community. And
such a report comes from Andrew
McCormick, of 24.3 Spadina avenue,
this city,'    ,
That Mr. jVlcCormick is well-known
and highly Respected, is evidenced by
the fact that he has held high offices
in ' several fraternal societies, r and
was for sc-'eral years President of
the1 Bricklayers'^ 'union. Inter-viewed
regarding the cure, Mr. McCormick
says :
"1 suffered with an attack of
Bright's Disease, and naturally was
much troubled concerning it. I heard
of the. wonderful cures effected by
Dodd's Kidney Pills and concluded to
tiy them. Tho result was so satis1
factory that it gives me pleasure to
■"lcconrmend  them."
Make and   keep  the Kidneys sound
by using Dodd's    (Kidncy ' Pills, and
' there can be no Bright's Disease.

winter wheat was, harvesting, and reports oi lack oi ram ,began to come
m ir om the i> orthwest, w here it WcS
needed. The influence of these cau.scd
shorts to cover iredly, and very soon
it became 'evident that the wheat
market, .which previously had dc-
i pended on the course of the corn
market, ha'dJ begun to act indcpend-i
ently andi on its own merits. The
speculative situation was soon found
to be in a condition to advance
sharply on Monday. The advance in
these markets on the week has been
5c to 6c per bushel, and since the
beginning ^of June the change in quotations show s advances oi> from 7c.
to 9c. per bushel. It as now. the general' opinion that the situation in
world's breadstuffs trade, as 'comprised ih available stocks, prospects
of growing supplies and tire probable
quantities required for consumption
during the coming twelve .months,
warrant a higher average range of
value than during the last ywo j-ears.
It is now a question, however,wheth-;
er the market ha"s not '"attained , a
high enough figure for the present.
Speculative-excitement has the , lacuity of carrying the price too high
at one time, as speculative depression carries it too low at, an. thcr,

Preyentlim  of Corns.
There are suggestions without number for the cure of corn<. Any reputable chiropodist and some who aro not
reputable can furnish an unfailing
remedy. But there is one sure way to
prevent them.. Don't wear the same
pair of shoes two days in succession.
Corns are caused by friction on-tho
toes, and the most expert bootmaker
cannot make two pairs of shoes which
willrub the feet in the same place.
The change of shoes gives the feet a
chance to rest. It is also good for the
shoes, and footwear which is treated
in this fashion will last much longer
than if put to daily use.
The Crocodile.
Pliny said the crocodile's skin "will
abide any injury and not be pierced.','
That may have been true in his day,
but it is not true now. The bullet of a
heavy modern'rifle will pierce the skin
anywhere unless it strikes in a slanting direction. The crocodile is not as
a rule hard to kill, provided one can
get a good shot at it, but that is just
the trouble. It has not the marvelous
vitality of the shark, which will sometimes struggle furiously for an hour,
although covered with apparently mortal wounds.

The. B.C. ' Mining Exchange in
commenting on Ilia,Royal Commission ^Report, says: -'And now the
workmen has gone back to work,
half a'million dollars poorer for his - g gch)
* Socialistic deb i uch! Ai d the ' po^T,'" TjflR
.' ixlur ' press' and .the lower-class
clergy, who for' months shrieked
denunciations from editorial chair
■ and pulpit upon Mr Dunsmuir, the
C.P.Bi,-thG police" magistrates, find
the-capitalist gene:ally,,,are silent
in the face of the astounding revel- '
ationa made by.the Royal Ci-mmis-
eion, or aro trying.to explain away
their former shameless championship of blood-hed  and- lawlessness.
'* Sirike leaders' refers to members
of the W.F. of M. who have been
ex.pl:>itfin'g this Province the past *-
, ' year. ' The Exchange goes on to say
- -The 'second point; worthy of note
in 'the Commission's report is t!he
lurid light it throws upon Socialism
generally, and the methods of that'
•   most Socialistic body, the'W.F.,6f
• t-
M.\ in,particular.    -And right here
..the people of B.C. have a remedy'
■ * ready to their hand".   .In this ' wsiy.
It is .piaini}' evident  that the Socialist Western Federation of Min-
ers hopes to find a happy hunting
ground in this Province.   They have
engineered another  s'rike at^ Van
'    Anda,   where   Mr  Vaughan  Rhys,
another sturdy Britisher, has taken
a leaf out of  Mr Dunsmuir's book
and   is  righting them to a  finish.
Socialist candidates are being nominated all over the Province for the
October elections.      All that is required, therefore, is for the people
to  remember the disgraceful exposures   made of   Socialism  and   its
1  corrupt  and  money-grabbing  methods  by the Lab u* Commission's
report, and to see that no Socialist
gets  elected.     Remember it is not
the capitalist alone who is threatened by these criminal lunatics.   It.is"
the small storekeeper, the prospec- '
tor who hopes to develop hie mine,
the industrious artisan who is working hard, as every man  should,  to
improve his position  in life—these
are the people  who are  threatened
''extinction by the Socialist.   Let the
■'people  keep   these  facts  in   mind,
.    and drive ibis disturbing clement
out of the country for good.
In general, the report tells little
that was not generally known,
though the press was too .timid to
give it publicity. The open and
shameless pel jury by .ihe 'strike-
leaders was mailer for common contempt and disgust'during-the sessions of the Corarnh'sion, and why
the criminals- have not been proceeded against is a somewhat unsavory mystery. -For the rest, if
the matter were not so serious, one
would be moved to laughter at tne

fleeced the highly'paid, but stupid
and soft, Canadian workmen out of
their money. Safe on the other side

This will show, among a score of

said thatHughes is now in the City

raising efforts'to reach Hughes' vic-

were kind enough to twist.this into
ta statement that working men

improvement', wheieas any person
of unbiased mind,, reading the ar-
tide, maj\seo plainly that it refers
to.men ofrHalliday's stamp, who
endeavour, by any and all" means,
to revolutionize recognized forms of
government. He is the man who
speaks of "revolution'' in the sense
anarchistic, who openly defiles the
press, who insults the Church, and
who maligns and insults corporation officials. His later ravings,
however, have been dealt with in a
masterly manner by the Nanaimo
'•Herald" of 1st inst1. These are
the men who must be suppressed.
It is not a question of preventing
any man improving himself or elevating himself in all ways. It is
to prevent the horrors of revolutionary and anarchistic insanity, and
to suppress the discontents who say

•    This  paper  has for  some years
past written of  the illegal destruc-
tion^of -game  here,   and in  other
parts,of the Province.    A volley of
abuse  and   vituperation  has  been
thrown by individuals at us for this
action.    We were virtually alone in
the  fight,  but  now,  we note with
pleasure that the press of the Province -at  large  has   taken up the
question ih earnest, and the notice
of the Government must be directed
to the fact that game must be protected, or the Game Laws expunged
entirely,1    From' all parts comes the
story of lawless  desr.ruct.ion.     The
press has been hard to wake, but it
has awakened now in earnest.
