When the contest started on  schedule time, the rinks were as evenly balanced as it was possible to  pick them, but as some take to the  stanes nat'l lak. an' some d' na' the  winning rinks -are gradually pulling  to the front. There is ample time  for all the rinks to win or lose yet,  and there will not be any slackening  of interest in the contest until the  last stone of   the season is thrown.

Perhaps thc most pleasing feature  of the season's play thus far, is thc  splendid spirit 'shown by Skip Matthews and his rink. They have  worked harder and played as well as  as any rink on the' ice to make thc  season's sport a success, and yet  have, lost every game. Undaunted,  however, they are on the spot for  every scheduled game, and make the  rinks that beat them "go some."  Interest in the game has this week  been transfered to Vernon, where two  Enderby rinks are competing in the  bonspeil.  Latest reports from the Mother  Land indicate a Liberal majority in  the next parliament of from'100 to  150. Hon.

Closely muffled, they divest themselves of their burnouses and ba-  bouches in an anteroom and put on  delicate satin slippers, which they  have brought with tli em in bags.  The reception-rooms are brilliantly  lighted up with pink wax candies  and scented with fragrant paslile:..  j    "I AM DEVOTED TO YOU."  There is no kissing or hand-shaking between the hostess and her  guests, but each lady as she conies  i" raises hor haiicl gracefully to her  heart, her lips, and her brow, which  means, "I am devoted to you, with  heart, mouth, and mind.'"' This  mode of salutation, when smilingly  performed, is very pretty.

Two men were recently discussing various psychological phenomena. _oth were "professional men  and familiar with the technical as  well au the popular side of the subject- they were reviewing, which was  I he. concentration of the attention  when face to0 face with death.  "_ou often hear wonderful stories of the instant review of the  events of a lifetime experienced by  drowning persons or those who arc  in danger of imminent death/' remarked the older of the two, "but  I have always been a. little sceptical about thc possibility of that-complete revival of the memory and the  condensation of the events of. a lifetime into the minute ancl a halt it  takes to drown.-"  ."Hut," objected thc other, "it  has fallen to my lot on two separate,  occasions to be thoroughly convinced of thc rapidity of thought which  is possible when you are face to face  with death. Instead of a rapid and  extensive review of������������������past events I  have found my thoughts concentrated on one fixed idea always immedi-  afcelqy connected with the danger in  whicli I was placed.  "MY FIRST EXPERIENCE  of the kind was in the River Shannon, when I was learning to swiin.  I "had taken only a few lessons in  shallow water when, being in a row-  boat on the river with two others,  ono of tliem, a Mr. Brown, who was  a very fine swimmer, proposed that  we should take a dip.' A Mr,  George Smith stayed in the boat to  guide it.  "After I had tried a few strokes,  staying close to the boat, I would  grasp the stern and rest myself.  'Mr. Brown, who did not know I  could not swim, got behind the  boat and gave it a good push ahead  as I reached for.the stern'after one  of'my efforts, and I went down.  "Not knowing anything about  swimming "except the stroke; I had  no .idea' of tho movements necessary.-to bring ine to'the. surface, so  I-persisted calmly in using the regular breast stroke. This, of course,  carried, my head down every time  I extended my arms, and the natural consequence was that nothing  came to the surface but my fingers  "The water being very muddy in  thi_ part of the river and*the current very swift, it was extremely  difficult for Mr. Sniith to locate me,  although Mr. Brown stood up in the  boat and pointed' out the place  where my hands came up last. By  the time Mr. Brown got to tho spot  and dived my erroneous notions  about swimming had carried mo a  yard or two away, just enough for  him to miss me.  "As I wont down for the traditional third time Mr. Sniith noticed JJiat_my_-fingcrs_wero_Jiuite. Jimp.  -_,->��������������������������� _  apparently certain death in  a rather peculiar way.  "Being anjirchitec't's assistant, it  was my duty to measure buildings  which were to be altered or enlarged, and one windy day I went to  see one of these, which was a three  story and basement brick house,  with the usual area and railings in  front of it. Adjoining this lwas a  little higher building, and ifc was  necessary for me to get thc exact  dimensions of tho brick wall and  chimney that projected above the  roof of the house I was measuring.  "I found a very large and heavy  skylight in thc attic, which required all my strength to push up and  out to open. Ifc was held open by a  pivoted stick of s.wood, and by  climbing through the opening I saw  that [ could stretch myself out on  the roof, and by holding fast to the  edge of the skylight, opening with  my right hand I could reach out  with my left and measure thc gable  wall with my six foot folding rule.  "I was sprawled out. in this manner, face down on the slate roof,  with mv left arm ancl thc rule extended at "full length, when I suddenly  became conscious that thc wind had  shaken thc skylight loose from -the  stick that held ifc open and that it  was falling shut. ' IM did not withdraw my hand instantly it would  catch-and crush it. If I puljcd.my  hand out I would slide down the  slate roof to the street below.  "When I first noticed that the  support had given way' thc skylight  had already begun its' descent and  it: had not more than four feet to  fall. During thc time that it fell  those four feet I had ample time to  review the consequences of losing  my right hand if I held on and thc  result of -  FALLING THREE STORIES  _  and that  THE STROKE HAD CEASED.  Fortunately for mo it had, because  after a final dive and failure to  reach mc Mr. Brown happened to  touch with his foot what he took to  be a half sunken sod of turf, many  of which float down the Shannon  under the surface. Instinctively he  made another dive" andgot-his hand  upon it or.ly to find that hc had hold  of tlie hair of my head.  "This is what went on above thc  surface., as I learned later. Under  the water there was only one idea  in my mind, and that was whether  or not 'Mr. Smith', who was sitting  in the boat rowing, had noticed that  I had gone down. Mr.- Brown 1  knew had his back to me.  "As long as I retained, consciousness J kept up the bv ist stroke  with fche precision of a cirill movement. During tho whole time, even  when thc water began to fcrickh.  into my oars with a soft, musical  sound, and I felt myself swallowing  ifc in largo quantities, there was no  review of any past life. No fear of  death, no thought of the future  'ever entered my mind for a moment; nothing but ii constant effort  of Ihe memory to recall whether or  not Smith was looking my way  when I went under and & desperate effort to determine by some process of reasoning what ho would  probably do if he saw me sink.  "Tn this case there war, no idea  of death, no realization of inimin-  em. danger even, and therefore the  thoughts may have been quite normal, as I must have been conscious: for nearly two minutes. - But  now lefc me turn to  ANOTHER CASE,  I_   which 1 had bo face instant and  Shannon. I knew I should fall directly upon those railings, and the  spikes bothered me.

"I... suddenly became conscious  that I was no longer sliding down  the roof, it was exactly like waking oufc ot a dream. I then realized that my toes in dropping over  the edge of the slates had caught,  on the little half round iron gutter.  "fn another minute the skylight  was pushed up by people who had  heard the crash and come up to sec  what was thc matter. They soon  hauled m. to a place of safety."-  TREATED BIRDS CRUELLY [CONVICT LABOR IS USED  if I let-go. -There was"nothing at  the edge of the voof but a little hall"  round gutter held up by a few holdfasts. ' "  "It occurred to, mc that it might  be.possible to pull out my right  hand and insert my left, as it would  bo better to lose my left-hand than  my right. I also discussed with  myself tho possibility of being able  to hold,my place if [ withdrew two  or three .fingers and sacrificed fche  others, but I concluded that they  would probably be cut clean off by  tho edge of such a- heavy skylight  and that I should slide down to the  street anyway.  "This idea of the insufficiency of  mangled v fingers to support my  weight on such a sloping roof, suggested- that it might bo better to  stick my arm into the opening and  that perhaps the injury to.it might  not be so severe as to require amputation. I distinctly remember  trying to recall whether the muscles  should be firm or relaxed and  thought it best to hold them firm.  "As well as I can remember, the  outcome of. my deliberations was a  determination to change hands and  fco sacrifice thc left instead of the  right. I had no sooner come to this  conclusion than it struck mc that  there^woiild not be time to make  the change,and that 1 might lose  my hold altogether.

My-final resolve was a-determination to hold on, as there was no  time to change hands, and to trust  to thc shreds of my mangled lingers  fco hold me on the roof.  "When thc crash came and thc  skylight actually fell shut niy hand  was not in the opening. I was sliding down the roof on my way to the  street below.  "Tho edge was at least ten feet  below me and I was gaining speed  afc every foot. The only elTect of  my frantic efforts to clutch at thc  edge of the skylight, tlie slates, or  anything, was to bring distinctly  home to my consciousness the fact  that f was in motion, sliding down.  I heard my rule go over the edge.  "In that fraction of a second thc  entire current; of- my thoughts  changed.

"Another manner ���������������������������'-.. w\;..eh the  peculiar property of this explosive  can be demonstrated is by scattering a small quantity of the dry powder over a shoct of "clean paper."

Blanchard   have    taken the seats  vacated by   Robt.    Peel and Geo. R.  Lawes.   In    retiring   from the Council Mr. Peel   and    Mr.    Lawes do so  with the   respect,    esteem and confidence of the people, and conscious of  the fact   that    they   did    what they  could to bring   -about   better conditions in Enderby, and to enhance the  prosperity of the community.   In the  one year he   has   served    the city as  Alderman,    Mr. Peel has fathered the  most progressive ��������������������������� step the   city   has  taken, and to his    persistency is clue  the past year's    improvement of our  streets and sidewalks, and the planting of   trees   about    the    recreation  grounds.  Mr. Bell's    election    as mayor was  not unexpected. He has served in that  capacity for   a   period of five years,  and so far as he has seen the possibilities    of the    office, he has served  the city well.   There are those, however, who feel that Mr. Beil has not  grasped the   position in its true significance and has    narrowed it down  to a personal    matter,   and they believed a change would be advantageous to the city.   But 70 voters out of j  111 thought   otherwise,    and so long  as Mr_ Bell wanted the position and  was prepared to promise to be decent  they voted to    let   him have it.   He  has a go'bd    board   of   Aldermen to  assist id the work, and will have the  solid support of every citizen insofar  as he conducts   the , business   in the  wellfare of all classes and the general  good of all.    Mr.    Evans has served'  faithfully in the past; Mr. Ruttan as  proved of great worth to thc city as  an Alderman, and Mr. Hutchison has  had some experience as a member of  the City Council.    Mr. Hancock and  Mr. Blanchard   are   new   men in the  capacity of aldermen, but they are so  well   and    favorably    known    by all,  that they were sure to lead the polls  for in them the people have absolute  confidence.  Mr. Barnes and Mr. Robinson, who  were prepared to sacrifice .themselves  in order to bring on an election, are  to be congratulated   on the splendid  vote    polled    by    each.   Mr.  Barnes'  vote of 41 against Mayor Bell's 70 in  view of the    fact   that   he    made no  canvass ancl never asked a man for a  vote, clearly   indicates    the high es-  "teem in which he is held, and should  prove a   valuable    straw    for future  calculations.  ___________tp._.the._ ne.w_-Citv_-Coiinr.il.  of  prepared to deal  importance to the  to be one of them.  We understand a petition is to be  presented to the; Council asking for  the submitting of a money byTlaw to  the electors to provide for the erection of: a public building���������������������������an Agricultural 7 Hall���������������������������on the recreation  grounds, which could. be placed at  the disposal of the Poultry Association or any other Association at a  nominal rental or free of rent as the  Council may decide. It would not be  difficult ,to make the building pay interest on the investment, if this were  deemed necessary, and the urgent  need of the building is recognized, or  should be recogbized, by all.  We trust that   the   petition will be  liberally    signed    by   the ratepayers  when it is presented by the committee for that    purpose.     The Council  will require   to    know that it is the  unanimous, or nearly unanimous wish  of the ratepayers that such a by-law  be put through.     Then there will be  no hesitancy in   the   matter, and we  shall have the building erected early  in the season, and avoid all the costly delays of late   fall or winter building.     Help the committee when the  petition is presented for your signature, and at the same time help the  town and yourself.

Mr.  Collier, the poultry judge, says thc  show at Vancouver i.s the largest and  best in America, so these gentlemen  will not attempt to make the Enderby show compare with it, but they  are determined to make it excel anything that has been held in the interior. And the poultrymen are preparing to buck them up to a man.  The action of the. Department of  Agriculture in pledging its unqualified support, has given our poultry-  men thc encouragement and incentive  needed, and they are now interesting  themselves in dead  earnest.  The position Enderby is to take in  connection with these annual shows  is an important one. If we are to  get the good of them, we must prepare to handle them. And 'we cannot  think of handling them if we do not  provide a suitable building for them.  This all should be ready to concede.  The new City Council is now elected and they will be seated next week  During.the   week    commencing 31st  January, Victoria will be en evidence  in all matters pertaining to Agriculture.   On. Monday, the 31st,  a meeting of the Secretaries of the Agricultural Fairs and   Associations of the  Province will    take place.   Thc main  aims ancl    objects of the Convention  are to    arrange   about   securing the  judges for future exhibitions so as to  compile ������������������ a    circuit    that will enable  fairs to be held on dates not conflicting with others situated in the same  district.   Other matters pertaining to  the more effective carrying out of the  annual    exhibitions    throughout    the  Province,. will be considered, and no  doubt as a result of such conference,  much good    will   accrue   to   the advancement   of   agricultural fairs and  exhibitions in British Columbia.  On Tuesday,    the   1st of February,  and the day following,  a meeting -of  the Central   Farmers'    Institute will  be held, when   all   proposals, resolutions and matters for important consideration will be placed on the agenda and finally dealt with during the  Convention.   This  Institute is  representative of all    the Farmers'  Institutes throughout   the   Province, and  all matters pertaining to Agriculture  and   the   betterment   of   the present  condition of the farmer are laid before the conference for' consideration  and  decision.   It is anticipated  that  many of the Institutes are furnishing  their representatives    with proposals  to submit   to   the   convention,    and  which-,   if    carried    out,   cannot but  have the best practical results.  On Thursday, the 3rd of February,  the=A nn uaP=Con ve nti _ hngf "tlfe=T37=C7  Dairyman's Association will be held,  and on the following day, the B. C.  Stock Breeders' Association will be  in session. A good program has been  prepared for both of these meetings,  and many interesting ancl valuable  lectures will be delivered by well-  known authorities on all matters  pertaining to agriculture. Nothing  succeeds like success, and it is evident that the knowledge disseminated  throughout the proceedings of these  gatherings cannot but have the best  possible results in the further advancement of the Agricultural industry throughout British Columbia.  The C. P. R. is issuing special excursion tickets at single rate, ancl  the opportunity afforded the people  from near and far to combine business with pleasure in visiting Victoria during the Convention is one  not often offered the public.

Canadian Progress  and General Comment  CANADA'S MIGHTY PROGRESS  _v.  ~~i  FOR SALE���������������������������A 5-room brick cottage on Regent street near the ��������������������������� river  shore; good location; in flrst-class  condition. Mrs. R. H. Binch, Enderby, B. 0������������������ ':'������������������������������������������������������.������������������������������������������������������-���������������������������  The year 1910 openB with an outlook which is the brightest in the  history of the Dominion. Trade was  never better than it is today; the  revenue is coming in freely and abundantly, and there is general prosperity all round. Development is going  ahead rapidly in all directions, and  indications from all the provinces  point to the conclusion that this will  be the best year Canada has ever  seen. A dispatch from Ottawa says  the late Christmas trade was the  heaviest on record, and the Post  office Department reports that the  Christmas' mail rush, especially from  Great Britain, exceeded' by 25 per  cent, all previous records.  The Government report estimates  the'value of the current year's harvest at $532,992,100, an increase of  $100,458,100 over the figures of 1908,  or about 23 per cent. The Western  Provinces show phenomenal increases,  the harvest in Saskatchewan, to take  a typical example, being valued at  $97,500,000 as compared with $37,-  500,000 the year before.  Building operations in practically  every city in Canada show great increases, over last year's figures, owing to money being plentiful, as a  result of the bounteous harvest,  while imports from Great Britain, as  well as the output of local manufacturers to meet the_ present year's  business, run into figures never before reached in Canada's commercial  history.  Preparations are being made at all  the immigration depots to receive a  larger number of settlers than has  ever before arrived in a single year.  Advices from upwards of one hundred  points in the United States show  that many thousands of homesteaders  are taking up land in Saskatchewan  and Alberta,, while the C. P. R.'s  scheme outlined . in last weeks issue  of this paper is expected to result ih  an enormous number of new settlers  coming in from the Mother Country.  A DISILLUSIONED ONE TALKS  A correspondent in the Standard of  Empire says. some very good things  in the following letter:  "I heartily agree with the sense of  the article that Canada as a field for  the investor offers opportunities far  and away safer���������������������������and always' at a  higher rate of interest���������������������������than those of  Great Britain. I was in no way surprised to read in your cable report  of the speech of the president, of the  Bank of Montreal lately that British  capital is fast being taken out of local securities and enterprises and put  into those of Canada.-  "Is this at all remarkable? I think  it___only_ ��������������������������� natural. ���������������������������._Quite__recently=_i,  took a fairly comprehensive tour  through Canada and also the United  States. Speaking of Canada, my  deep-rooted impression is that it is  the "sanest" country in the world.  , In my travels through Canada I  was struck with the sturdy spirit of  independence and individualism that  influences the people to a man. Talk  to"a prosperous, hard-working farmer  in the Prairie Provinces about the  "iniquity" of private ownership of  land and' he will laugh at you. And  if the man next to him owns 10,000  acres, does he want to steal it away  from him? Not a bit of it. He puts  his back into his own work and hopes  to possess as much himself some day.  "Canada is a great and rich country; and even the Canadians do not  yet know by half how great and rich  it really is. And, so far as I am  personally concerned, any money I  have to invest in the future goes into  Canadians���������������������������railway, industrial, or  Government���������������������������it does not matter  which. The spirit of Canada is my  guarantee that I am doing the right  thing, coupled, of course, with the  undeniable fact of her unlimited resources.     DISILLUSIONED.  CANADA'S   NAVAL BILL  it followed closely the lines of the  Militia bill, but differed in one important respect. The Militia bill  provided that the whole male population between certain ages was liable  to service.Thcre is no such provision  in this act. There was no suggestion  of compulsion or conscription of any  kind. .  When Sir Wilfrid explained that the  navy would be placed at the disposal  .of the British Government in time of  emergency, Mr. Poster asked for an  explanation of the term emergency.  Sir Wilfrid replied that it would  have the same meaning as in the Militia Act, viz., that an emergency  would mean war, invasion or insurrection, real, or apprehended.  Leaving the details of the bill Sir  Wilfrid Laurier came to discuss what  it was proposed to do. He made the  important announcement that the  Government had decided to adopt a  program of eleven' ships instead of  seven. The present plan contemplated  the building of four armored cruisers  of the Bristol type, one cruiser of the  Boadicea type, and six destroyers of  what is known- as the improved  River class. The estimated cost of  these eleven ships is $11,000,000,' but  if the ships were built in Canada the  cost would be 33 per cent. more.  Sir Wilfrid did not say where the  ships would-be built, or where they  would be ..placed. Construction would  start, however, as soon as possible,  and it is possible the ships would-be  built in Canada.  Mr. Borden,- ^speaking on the bill,  declared the proposal of,the Government was inadequate. They were  either too much or too little. They  were much for experiment in the organization of a Canadian naval service. They were too little for immediate and effective aid. They simply  meant . a waste' ol m6ney_withput  effective result. The speediest organization would not take less than 20  years, and the crisis, if it came,  would come, to the-empire during the  next three years.  "When the battle of Armageddon  comes," he said, "when the Empire  is fighting for its existence, when  kinsmen of the other great dominions are in the forefront of the battle, shall we sit silent and inactive  while we contemplate with smug.satisfaction ' our increasing crops and  products, or shall we pauper-like,  seek fancied but delusive security in  appeal to the charity of some indifi-  nlte high-sounding' political - doctrine  of a great neighboring nation? No,  a thousand times no! There will be  no such outcome.  . "If Canada ��������������������������� be true to herself she  will not fail in the day of trial to  the Empire, but stand proud, power-  fnl__n_d_resolute_ ln_the_ _v_cry_._forefront.  BRYN-IACH WAGON ROAD  Sir Wilfrid Laurier introduced the  long-promised naval bill last Wednesday, and it now stands on the order  paper as "an act respecting the naval service of Canada." In introducing the bill, Sir Wilfrid ran over  its salient points.   He explained that  of the sister nations. But she must  not stand unprepared. Go.on with  your naval service. Proceed cautiously and surely. Lay your proposals  before the people . and give them, if  necessary, opportunity to be heard,  but do not forget that we are confronted with an emergency which  may rend this Empire asunder before  the proposed service is worthy of the  name. In the' face of such a situation immediate, vigorous, earnest action is necessary."

Can the human framo support  ��������������������������� weight of nearly one and three-  fluarter tons? An emphatic "No"  [would probably be tho reply to this  question in ninety-nine cases out  of a. hundred. Nevertheless, tho  ���������������������������feat of sustaining 3,SG8 lbs. by muscular strength alone has been performed many times by Mr. Arthur  I. axon, known in the athletic world  as tho slrongcst man on earth, says  London Tit-Bits.  While lying on his back Mr. Sax-  , fii balances a huge plank, .0 feet  Hong with his feet, and a-200 lb.  ���������������������������bar-bell. Thirteen men sit on the  plank aud three on the bar-bell,  thc combined weight being 3,80S  lbs. An even greater test of  [Strength is made when, with his  ���������������������������brother Hermann, he supports a  ibridge weighing over two tons  .whilo an automobile, carrying six  people, runs over ifc. This is a combined weight of over three tons,  and if his strength should give way  ���������������������������even for onoi second���������������������������it would  mean instant death, or, at least,  NOTHING LIKE BEEFSTEAK  Strangely enough, this man of  muscle never diets himself. "While  ���������������������������I do nut drink or -.muke habitually," ho says. "I drink beer if I������������������feel  I 'want it, and often smoke a cigar or two a day. Smoking and  drinking in moderation are not injurious, and I know positively that  they do not in the slightest affect  my ability to life heavy weights-'  The same thing is true in eating.

There is nothing like beefsteak to make one strong.  " 'Everything in moderation.' is a  good old motto to be observed on  all occasions."  -   TERRIBLE INJURIES.  Equally striking is Mr.  Saxon's  leafc of  lifting  371   ibs.   above   his  _iead  with one hand,  and   .48 lbs.  .with two.    Just cousider what this  means  for a moment.    With one  hand this professional strong man  'raises above    his    head  a  weight  equivalent to over 3}4 cwt- of coal.  There is no trick about it, Mr. Saxon will toll you.      Ifc is    simply a  question of strength���������������������������strength inherited from a race of strong men  and women, and developed by years  vi exercise and temperate living.  And yet- Mr. Saxon never lifted  a weight until he was sixteen years  cf age; and he is now thirty-one.  "I  was studying    to    become a  ������������������culptor,"  he    remarked    a short  tame ago, "when my father caused  c_e to- join * weight-lifting club. .1  [was fairly muscular, and my strong  .rame'enabled  mo to lift greater  .weights than  any    of    the other  ..embers.

Not so in the  Carnegie nursery. Here toys are  cf the simplest and least expensive  sort, coming at such infrequent intervals that there has never been a  surfeit, jusfc fresh joy in each new  gift.  The kinswoman who has so often  heard Mr. Carnegie expound his  theories of child-culture, tells this  interesting story of Margaret Carnegie's; everyday life.. When she  was. six years old she received her  first pair of "shiny" shoes, made  from patent leather. Living, as she  had, in a modern palace, attended  hy vigilant nurses and tutors, this  little girl had never possessed anything quite so gorgeous as those  shiny shoes. No wee daughter of a  day laborer could have taken keener delight in thc new treasures,  which had cost less than two dollars.  MUCH HIDDEN TREASURE  FACTS     ABOUT     UNCLAIMED  MONEY IN BANKS.  _  Thousands   of   Pounds   Lying   in  '-'English.Banks For Which There  Arc No Owners.  HER "SHINY SHOES."  Taught (o Value Li tile Pleasures,  Simple Toys, and Uuosieala-  .ioiis Clothes.  Being trained to inherit one hundred millions.  Such is tlie lot. of a bonnic, unaffected little girl of twelve years,  whom you might have passed almost  any day if you had been walking in'  Central Park, New York, where  you would have seen tho little girl  fe&ding squirrels or tossing bits of  bread to thc swans. You would  never dream that she would inherit  one million, let alone one hundred  millions. But that is because she is  Margaret, daughter of Andrew Carnegie, who adds to the high ideals  of his -wife his own practical ideas  of education for a great trust.  The keystone on which Mr. and  Mrs. Carnegie are building the education and training of their daughter, according to a kinswoman and  intimate family friend, is the necessity oi preserving at any cost and  sacrifice thc child's natural capacity for finding happiness in simple things. It is their belief that  the joy of childhood should not de-\  pend upon formal pleasures and  concrete amusements; that it should  ' Afc first her father was greatly  amused at her keen delight, but  gradually his amusement turned fco  displeasure as he saw thc possibilities of one pair of shoes overturning all his educational theories..,For  Margaret, walking in tlie park with  her distinguished parent, stopped  every few paces to admire tho wonderful shoes, and, as often as sho  thought it necessary, to" lean over  and dust invisible specks from the  tips with her pocket-handkerchief.  All-of which goes to prove that thc  arrival of a pair of "grown-up"  shoes was au event in her well-ordered and frugal life.  This simplicity prevails in her entire wardrobe. The arrival of a  new frock in fche Carnegie nursery  has always been an evenfc. Not being surfeited with handsome and  expensive clothing, like any wholesome and happy girl thc heiress of,  millions finds hor cup of happiness  overflowing at sight of a new frock,  without reference to its intrinsic  value.  Fifty.'." millions of unclaimed deposits in fche coffers of banks! Such  was the amazing total arrived at,  a few years ago, by the--Edinburgh  Merchants' Company, which petitioned Parliament with thc same  object as a Bill recently introduced into the House of Commons���������������������������  that all such balances shall be confiscated by thc State, says London  Answers.  Whether the estimate is fairly accurate ifc is impossible to say,  because bankers make no returns of  unclaimed funds in their possession,  and refuse to give any information  on. the subject.   But banks unquestionably hold   enormous   sums for  which no owners are "forthcoming.  An indirect proof of this is that  savings banks, which arc obliged to  publish    accounts,    invariably  acknowledge having    some   dormant  and unclaimed balances. Only a few  months  since,  one maile a special  effort to discover the owners of a  number    of    such    accounts;    but,  though ifc found thc people entitled  fco ������������������0,172, ifc v/as unable to trace thc  owners  'of   deposits     aggregating  ������������������5,12-1.

That night, instead of a  dead silence as    before,  when my  challenges; was issued, quite a number of eager weight-lifters, anxious  to improvctheir financial position,  ���������������������������jumped, into  the  ring; and  rushed  jor the bell,    which I   had raised  .easily with one hand; but much to  their  surprise the 150-lb.  bar-bell  ,had changed into a 300-ib. one, and  the disappointed  weight-lifters retired scratching their heads in an  endeavor to  understand the trick  which had been played on them."  Perhaps oue of the most daring  feats ever performed by Mr. Saxon  ,was that of throwing from one ha d  to the other   overhead a   bar-bell  ���������������������������weighing 310 lbs.    On another occasion  he  laid    on  his    hack and  tb .ought over  hi,,   forehead  on   to  ihis chest a  bar-bell   weighing 3SG  iib's.  with both bauds, after pressing it upwards to arms' length.  ance or the   absence   of toys and  games; that    dress and    personal  luxuries should be matters of indifference.       And, finally, the   child  should find its supreme happiness  in the mere joy of living, in tho innocent realization that it is alive.  No one should think from this outline of Margaret Carnogie's training fchafc she lives an austere life or  has nofc every modern convenience  and comfort at her command.      It  is simply that love of luxury is uo  part of her curriculum.  MONEY NOT EVERYTHING.

Money, to her, represents  merely a means of satisfying her  personal desires. Her attendants  and tutors generally toach her that  this money sets her apart from tho  rest of the world as a person io  whom all good things will come.  With Margaret Carnogio the system of training is entirely different.  She must be taught that tlio woalth  .she.- inherits will bring with it rough  places which her own intelligence  and good judgment will make  smooth, fn the performance of her  duties in this connection, in tho  handling of her inheritance, sho will  find herself unable to gratify many  of hor desires.

"Noblesse oblige" This is'the  motto on every Royal nursery wall  in Europe. And the littlo heirs to  ancient thrones are taught that nobility involves simplicity, and that  nobility of birth makes nobility or  magnanimity of conduct obligatory.  "Noblesse oblige." It is nofc written on the nursery walls in the  Carnegie home on Fifth Avenue,  but it is lived and 'preached by all  fco whom the education and training of thc little Margaret is entrusted. This one lofty prccopt  must be hers, that whatever she has  which other less fortunate little  girls have not is hers only as sho  may make of ifc an instrument for  tho happiness of others.

The children in Japan are taught  at an early age to draw and write  with both hands, and their education is not considered complete until they havo thoroughly mastered  the art of using the left as well a3  tho right.   This method of teaching  has also been started in a few English schools, tho pupils being taught  fco draw circles or other figures on  tho blackboard, first wiin tho right  hand and then with the left.   It is  an excellent plan to practice writing-with both hands, as should the  right hand be injured, the work can  be carried on by the left hand. For  domestic work tho ability to use the  left hand is   invaluable, and it is  wonderful how quickly, with a little  practice,  one can teach oneself to  do it.  Further evidence to the same  purport is supplied on the occasion  of a bank failure. When fche Western Bank of Scotland went into  liquidation, many balances wero  unclaimed, and, twenty years afterwards, there remained ownerless  ������������������ 10,368. In connection with fche liquidation of the City of Glasgow-  Bank, again, no claims were lodged in respect of ������������������5-1,143; and,  though subsequently some of the  money was claimed, the Assets'  Company not long since had thousands of pounds for which owners  could not be found.  Look, too, at the special manner  in which the Bank of England deals  with dormant balances of long  standing. The bank invests them",  and the interest which accrues is  sufficient to pension the widows of  her deceased clerks.  Besides such testimony as this,  there are many isolated incidents  which go to show that, if banks  were made to disgorge the money to  which they have no right, the ever-  tightening grip of taxation might  be promptly relaxed.  A mysterious account stands in an  alias of a maiden lady. After she  had been a customer at a certain  joint-stock bank for some years, she  opened a second account in an assumed name���������������������������a practico which is  constantly adding to unclaimed  hoards in banks���������������������������and paid into it a  lump^sun___.oL.������������������-7.,500._____Subsequenfc^.  ly, her original account was frequently dealt with, but the other  she never touched. After her death  her executors -withdrew the balance  of the first account. About the ������������������7,-  500. however, they said nothing ���������������������������  and nor did tlie bank.  For business reasons, a French  gentleman onco wished to communicate with a -certain -English lady,  and wrote to her London agents,  who, on making inquiries, discovered that sho had died in a lunatic  asylum. Her affairs were then investigated, with the result that a solicitor recovered from thc bank an  account in her name which had been  dormant for somo time.  Thckecn competition in commercial circles, even in these strenuous days, is as nothing beside thai  of many plants and trees for bar*  existence. Their entire lives, from  the time they form in the parent  seed-pod, aro beset with peril, foi  Nature is as much mistress of destruction as of creation.  Every  plant growing    in  a  wild  state    has   something _to   combat  against.    It may be thc war waged  against ifc by plants of other species"  or it may be fche likelihood of being'  devoured by animal or insect.  -  At the same "time, all plants in  their wild state are provided with  weapons of defence, and often the  weakest plant has proportionately the strongest weapon; directly  cultivation is brought about, however, so do the defensive faculties  disappear.  This is particularly evident in the  case of the garden plum, which, in  its natural state, carries long, sharp  thorns, as a protection against the  browsing animals.  Thorns, spikes, spines, and stiff?  bristly growths are fche most common forms of plant defence. Thero  are many plants fchafc have spines  only whon young,'-shedding theso  weapons of defence when old enough  aud sufficiently strong to exist without them.    Other plants, again,  CARRY THEIR SPIKES,  or spines, on thc under part of tho  leaves, fco ward off creeping foes,  such as slugs.  In a childish  all  way, we nave  looked afc the araucaria, or monkey-  puzzle tree, iind firmly decided that  thc spikes were indeed to ward off  simian acrobats.. As a matter of  fact, however, the spikes were there  for a very different purpose. Tho  trunk of the araucaria is composed  of soft, pithy, wood, and the sap  travels upwards so near the bark  that, were this covering broken by  a blow, the tree would "bleed."  The spikes, therefore, are to prevent a possible blow from reaching  tho bark; and as the tree grows,  and tho trunk towards tho bas .  toughens, so do these basal spikes  drop off. ������������������������������������������������������  The most terrible plant defence  of all is that of the wreath of  thorns, a creeper that flourishes in  the dense jungles of South America. A horse or man struggling  through such a jungle, if so unfortunate as to come in contact with  this creeper, will rapidly be. enfolded with the sinuous lengths, that,  snake-like, form a chevaux do frise  around tho intruder, from tho  clutches of which . it is impossible  to get free without assistance. Tho  more the victim struggles, tho tight-  ev he is held; and this plant can _  best be described as a series of-  spines, the tightening of ono coil  .

Here aro two suggestive  items from ifc:  "Box .ontaining a number of silver articles, coins, medals, and  seals, and having on ifc a crest, and  the name, 'E. S. Cooper.'  "Box containing diamonds and  articles of jewollcry lodged by Dr.  Andrew Blake and George Jennings  on December 22nd, 1795.  There'are many similar hoards in  Irish banks, numbers of whieh have  remained in them since thc Rebellion. Some years ago an Irish  peer, when in Melbourne, hoard in  romantic circumstances that a  quantity of plate had been deposited in a Dublin bank by one of his  ancestors afc thc beginning of the  nineteenth cenfcry, and that there ib  still remained. Thc bank, on his  communicating with it, ab once admitted his claim, and "delivered up  tho treasure.  It is a well-known fact that animals dislike drinking water that  has lain in thc large, bowl-like  leaves of certain plants, such as  rhubarb and tho vegetable marrow,  and this is merely an unlooked-for  scheme of defence.  Other plants, again, ensure their  immunity from attack by the in digestibility of their leaves. The rho-'  doddendron, for example, has  stringy, tough leaves, that must bo  the reverse of palatable, oven to the  most goat-like animal. Tho more  familial' laurol is also distinctly uninviting as a dish; and if a moth  wore placed in un air-tight box  with some crushed laurel-loaves, the  poisonous fumes would kill the insect;.  The problem of poison is not a  hard one to solve, and enters very  largely into the plan of plant defence. It is obviously harmful for  the bark to be bitten from trees,  hence on many varieties grows a  moss fatal to browsing animals.  Yet another form of plant defence is that of odor. In the majority of cases, warning of poison  is given to animals by odor.  -*-  "Yes, ma'am," said tho tattered  tramp, "I have helped carry out a  great many benevolent enterprise  es."

Clarke, a well-known resident of this place and a prominent member of the Salvation Army'.  Mrs. Clarke is always ready to give  her experience for the benefit of  her suffering sisters.  "My sickness commenced twenty"  years ago with the change of life,"  says Mrs. Clarke. "My health was  in a bad state. Water would run  from my head which would make me  faint. When I came out of the  fainting spells I took fits." I was  bloated till I was clumsy. The pain  I suffered was awful. It would go  ��������������������������� to my feet and then to my head.  Many doctors attended me, and 1  tried many medicines, but nothing  gave me relief till I used Dodd's  Kidney .Pills. The first box stopped the fits and seven boxes cured  mo completely." ,  Every suffering woman should use  Dodd's Kidney, Pills. They make  strong, healthy Kidneys, and the  woman who lias good Kidneys is  safe-guarded against those terrible  pains tliat make miserable the lives  of so many women.  EUROPE'S DIRTIEST TOWN.  All holiday travellers should shun  Boryslaw, in Galicia��������������������������� "the back of  Europe"���������������������������truthfully called the dirtiest place in Europe. - It is the oil-  trade centre, and is decidedly not  beautiful. In the main street all  the houses have been built, on mine  refuse, and njosfc of them have sunk  below the level of the street. In  fact, there is not a solid brick or  stone building in thc whole of the  town, and many of the houses are  in a state of partial or entire collapse. Unrefined petroleum is everywhere. Ifc gets into everything  ���������������������������food and clothing���������������������������and the atmosphere reeks of it. Along one side  of the main street is a raised wooden pavement, and beneath it is an  oily ditch.' Boryslaw's main waterway is a narrow, sluggish, oily  stream. On its banks the town's refuse is cast, and the market Jbooths  are erected alongside; while the local washerwomen���������������������������though, from  external appearances, one would  judge that laundresses did not exist  there at all���������������������������do their washing jn  its oily depths.

KEEP YOUR TEMPER.  Which of.all -domestic virtues is  most essential to a happy married  life? The ability to keep one's temper, beyond all question. There  te nothing which lends more to misery, not only- for its possessor, but  also for those about him, than an  ungovernable and unreasonable  temper. No one is worse to live with  than an ill-tempered man, except,  perhaps, an ill-tempered woman.  Bad-tempered people completely  spoil the lives of those who associate with them. The feeling of strain  is ever' present; one never knows  just when the storm will break, although, apparently the weather,  metaphorically, is "set fair." Life  in' these circumstances becomes . a  burden almost beyond bearing.  ~-    -(2  POULTRY.   7-  Wc call the attention of our readers, to the advertisement of The  Gunny Langlois Company, of Mont  real, which , appears elsewhere in  this pap'ei.

How hard would be all our hearts  but for our hardships and sorrows.  Opinions about the past can never  take the place of work for the future.  When a faith is dead it is customary to embalm it in obsolete  phrases.  Success depends not on what a  man makes, but on what success  makes of him.  Many a man who is berafcing thc  devil has no objection to boarding  free with him.  No man has any better world before him than he is seeking to make  about him.  When a man's religion is all hot  air the only thing he thinks about  is going up.   -  When men make a mockery of  sin their sins are sure to make a  mockery of them.
