Politics has  ever been a losing game, financially/  for Mr. Martin. At least, hc says so  and' people believe him. But as well  try to keep a man out of the news-'  -.In the course of"his speech in presenting   the   estimates,-  Hon.W.

Wc believe yet that, because it mcans  the spending of a  they,will do so. But their action in  dealing with .the office of city solicitor is too small to come under the  head of business. It is on a par with  thc action of one of thc old councils  when they .bought a pair of pole-  climbers and attempted to deprive  the local   licensed . electrician of the  few dollars. Mayor Bell has never  lost an occasion to comment publicly  on the. low taxation of Enderby, and,  we do not wish to discourage his efforts in this respect, but,in fairness  it should be said that if we as a city  a taste of it, as to try to keep Joe1  Martin out of the political cauldron.  He seems to enjoy the bubbling, and  the hotter it gets .the better he likes'  it'. He was elected as a member of  the House of Commons in the recent  election, and he had no more than  taken his seat when he caught the  speaker's eye and said .something.  It is not always essential that you  agree absolutely with Mr. Martin. In  fact, he thinks more of you if you  don't. But when he speaks, you have  to listen, whether you like it or not.  And, so, wiien hc got up in the  British House and told the Liberal  leader that he did not know his business, the   Britishers   did not like it  were living up to the requirements of   much, but they had to take it.

And the climbers haven't been used  since. We fear the city will have a  similar experience in its efforts to get  along without a city solicitor. Pole  climbing looks ��������������������������� easy when an expert  is doing it. And the job, of city solicitor is largely a matter of habit  when we have such penetrating minds  at the head of city affairs, still, it is  an office that has saved cities larger  and smaller than Enderby endless litigation and thousands of dollars. It  line with that of our sister town_.  000  OSEPH MARTIN is a man of  such pronounced views and  pungent expression that he is  sure to have enemies. But he is also  sure of friends, for he is worthy of  them. He shows that he is worthy  of them by the fact that he can get  along without them. When he went  to England son_e months ago his  enemies in Canada, and especially in  B. C, were delighted, and his friends  began to see the castles of political  insipidity in the Old Country crumble.   They knew Joe would get a fin-  then Mr. Martin wrote letters to the  London Times and the Thunderer  published them, in which. Mr. Martin  told.some homely truths.

Although a  tolerable good woman,    Hannah's  /ace   was  not   very   prepossessing,  and  Iiv?..

And in this she was  correct. They did pity her, For  they remembered another gentle  woman, whose brown hair had  turned' gray, and whose blue eyes  had waxed dim beneath the withering influence of* him she called hor  husband. She was dead, and when  they saw-the. young, light-hearted  Matty, they did not understand how  she could over have been induced  to take that woman's place and wed  .. man of thirty-eight, and they  blamed her somewhat, until they  reflected that she knew nothing of  him, and that her fancy was probably, captivated by his dignified  bearing, his manly figure, and handsome  face.    But  these  alone  they  who, with a cry of delight, bent  down and kissed them through her  lears.-  "Did these come from your garden?" she asked of Nellie, who,  childlike, answered, "We hain't any  ilowcrs.

"Who is Aunt Kelsey." asked  Mrs. Kennedy, a painful suspicion  fastening itself upon her that the  lady's opinion might be correct.  "'She 'is pa's sister Charlotte;,''  answered Nel iie, "and lives in  Rochester, in . great big house,  with the handsomest things; but  .she don't come here often, it's so  heathenish   she   says."  j'Jcrc spying John, who was going  with tin; oxen to the meadow, she  ran away, followed by Maude,  be-  knew couid not make hor happy,  and ere she had been six weeks a  wife, they were not surprised that  hcr face began to wear a weary  look, as if the burden of life were  hard to bear.  As far as she could, she beautified her home, purchasing with-her  own means several little articles  which thc- doctor called useless,  though hc never failed to appropriate to himself thc easy-chair  which she had bought for thc sitting-room, and which when she was  tired rested her so much. On the  subject of curtains, ho was particularly obstinate. "There were  blinds," he. said, " and 'twas a  maxim of his *\cver to spend his  money  for anything unnecessary."  Still, when Matty bought, them  herself for thc parlor, when her  piano was unboxed and occupied a  corner which had long been destitute   of  furijj.li.re,   and  when   her  twecn whom and herself there was   marble   table' stood   between    th  for the present a most amicable  understanding. Thus left alone,  Mrs. Kennedy had time for thought,  which crowded upon her so fast  that, at last throwing herself upon  the bed, she wept bitterly, half  wishing she had never come to  Laurel Hill, but was still at home  in her own pleasant cottage. Then  hope whispered to her of a brighter  day, when things would not seem  to her as they now did. She would  fix up the desolate old house, she  thought���������������������������the bare windows which  now so stared her in the face,  should be shaded with pretty mus-  in   curtains,   and   she  would  loop  ; true her obeisance was very low. ,lin curtains, and she would loop  nd her greeting kindly enough, but them back with ribbons. -The wirier, was about her an inquisitive,  pet, too, on Lire parlor floor should  and  .1 at the same,  time,   rather pat  ronizing  air.  which  Mrs.  Kennedy  did not'like. and she wis glad when  b. exchanged for a better one, and  when her piano and marble table  came, thc only articles of furniture  she al;  last left th'e parlor,, telling j she had not sold, it would not seem  ihem,  as lhe did  s.u.   that '"dinner j so  cheerless and so cold,  was  done  ready."

Great help _h  to  me;  but T  shan't   stay  tu  wait  oi* more'n forty mure."  Dr. Kennedy had his own private  rca_oti for wishing t<> conciliate  Hannah.

"Yes, ' mariti, for nothin'," answered John, "but I ain't -green  enough for that, and 'fused outright. Then Marster, who got boat  "���������������������������'lection' day, threatened to send  in. back, but I knew- hc couldn't  do it, ancl so hc agreed to pay  eight dollars a month. I could get  more some' whar else, but I'd rather stay with mother, and so I  stayed."  "But that- has nothing to do with  tho church," suggested Mrs. Kennedy, and John replied :  "I'm corain' to the p'int now.  I lived with Marster .Kennedy, and  went with him to church, and when  T sec how he carried on week'days,  and how peart like he read- up  Sabba' flays,,savin' the Lord's prar  and ''Postlc's Creed. I began- to  think   thar's   Ronicthin.    rotten   in  in  many  whose  pleasant  UllI!.  uf  lol.n  handiw.rk was. here vx pi;  mother,   whom   she  begged  "to go  home,   and   not  stay  in   that old  house  where thc folks were ugly,  and the rooms not a bit pretty."  Mrs. Kennedy's heart was already  full, and drawing Maude to her  side, the two homesick children  mingled their tears together, until  a heavy footstep upon thc stairs  announced the approach of Or.  Kennedy. Not a word did he say  of his laic adventure with Maude,  and his manner was very kind toward hi.s wec'iry wiry, who, with his  hand upon her aching forehead, and  hi? voice in her ear, telling hcr how  sorry 1k> was' that sin; was sick,  forgot lhat she had been unhappy.  "Whatever eh-ie he may do," she  thought, "he certainly loves me,"  a:ul after a fashion he did perhaps  love her. She was a pretty little  ercature, and her playful, coquettish ways had pleased hini at first  sight. He needed a wife, and when  iheir mutual friend who knew  nothing of him save that he was  a man of integrity and wealth, suggested Matty .Remington, he too  thought favorably of the mailer,  and yielding to ihe fascination of  hcr   soft   blue   eyes,   he   had   won j cd  to come, but saying nothing definite  concerning her new home, or her  own happiness . as a second wife.  Several weeks went by,,.and then  an vr.swcr came.  "'If you had of wanted me,"  wrote Janet, "J. should of come, but  bein' you-didn't, I've went tu live  with Mr. Blodgett, who peddles  mijk, and raises butter and cheese,  and who they say is- worth a deal  of. money, and well he may be, for  he's saved  for forty  years."  Then followed a detailed account  of hcr household matters, occupying in all three pages of foolscap,  to which was pinned a bit of paper,  containing  thc   following:  "Joel looked over my writing and  said I'd left out the very thing I  wanted to tell thc most. Wc aro  married, me and Joel, ancl I only  hope you are as happy with that  doctor as 1 am with my old man."  This announccrr.cnt crushed at  ionee the faint hope which Mrs.  Kennedy had secretly entertained,  of eventually having Janet tO'Siip-  PJ.V the plaM_of_Hannahj_ who was  and never, under"  notoriously"  any circumstances, did anything she  possibly could avoid. Dr. Kennedy  did not tell his wife that he expected her to make it easy for Hannah,  so she would not leave them; but  Vir::inny, so whci mether, who allu  was a roavin' Methodis', asked mc  t. go wid hcr to meet-in', I went,  and was never so mortified in my  life, for arter the elder had 'xortcd  a spell at thc top of his voice, hc  sot down and said there was room  I'or others. I couldn't.see.. ho\v that  v/as, bein' he took up the' whole  chair, and while I was wouderin'  what, hc meant, as I'm a livin' nigger, up got mai'in and spoke a piece  right in mcetin' !

"And did any of thc rest speak  pieces?" asked Mrs. Kennedy,-convulsed with laughter, - at Johiys  vivid  description.  ".Jloss your heart," hc answered  with a knowing look, "'twan't a  piece she was speaking-���������������������������she was  tellin' hcr 'spcric-nce, but it sounded so like the boys at school that  I was deceived, for I'd never seen  sueirwm-lPlMore ~ TJu^^  I like it now, and I believe thar's  more '"sistency down in that school-  house, than thar is in���������������������������I won't say  the 'Piscapal church, 'case thar's  heaps of shiviiiv' lights thar, but if-  he  told  her how   industrious   the j you won't   be mad,   I'll  say  more  late Mrs. Kennedy had been, and  hinted that a true woman was not  above.' kitchen work. 'The consequence "of this was, "that Matty", who  ���������������������������really wished to please him, became, in'time a very drudge, doing  things which she once thought she  could not do, and then, without  a murmur, niinisteri'ig to her exacting hu.band when he came home  from visiting a patient, and declared himself "tired to death."

And when he'.saw how eon-  fidingly she clung to him, he was  conscious of a half-formed resolution to be to her what a husband  (.;iight to bo.

"Save, save, save," seemed  to be his motto, and-when at church  the pinto was passed to hini, he  gave his dime a loving pinch ere  parting company with it; anil yet  none read the service louder, or  defended  his  favorite liturgy more  than thar is in Marstcr Kennedy,  who has hisself to thank for my  bein' a Methodis'." _  (To be continued.)'  THAT CLOCK AGAIN.  Gerund, who stuttered badly, returned home at four a.m. iu a blissful mood from nu ''evening" at tlie  club. On entering the house, he was  greeted from above by Mrs. Gerund, and the following dialogue  ensued :  "Is that you, John?" accused  Mrs.    Gerund from thc landing.  "Y-y-ycs, m'dear. thiit's m-me !"  delightedly answered Gerund.  "What do you mean, sir?" thundered his wife, "by coming home  at four o'clock?"

When cream from several separations is, collected, tlr,_ churning  should not be made for a number  of hours after the addition of the  last batch of cream. Unless this  time is given thc fresh cream added will not have soured throughout  the mass of sour cream, and if in  this condition much butter fat will  be lost in thc buttermilk. Time  must be given for complete and  thorough blending of thc various  lots so that they' arc practically  cne, the acid being developed in all  alike. This may be done very nicely by taking the previous night's  separation as the last and churning thc next day, thus giving ample  time'for the proper ripening of the  last cream added. -  During the'last-few hours of rip- ���������������������������  ening there should be taken into  consideration the temperature at  which the' cream must be churned.  When it is completely ripe or has  reached that point where the flavor  is fine and the aroma good, it  should be quickly brought to the  temperature necessary -for churning if not already at that temperature. H it has to be lowered several degrees, it should stand at tho  churning temperature for a period  of. three or four hours beforo  churning. This becomes necessary  because the butter-fat is a poor  conductor of heat and takes longer  fco change in temperature than the  milk scrim?. Every one is familiar  with the fact that oils aud fats cool  very slowly.'  During  thc  process  of  ripening,  the cream   should be  stirred occa-..  aionally to obtain best results. Just  what is the result of stirring is not  entirely known or why it is necessary,- but  it  is known 'that   cream  ���������������������������when frequently stirred ripens with-  a. more  uniform    and    finer flavor   y  than cream which is ripened without  'stirring.  BRAINS AS WELL  A.S HANDS.'  There arc good cows and poor  cows in all breeds. Whatever breed  you may choose you will find, it ���������������������������  necessary to employ the service of  the. scale's and the Rabcock test,  and be governed by their verdict.  Too much bother'? Well, perhapn  su but if you arc not willing to use  your brains as well as your hands,  and to look carefully after all the  details qE the business, better let'  the cows alone entirely, for-the  probabilities arc you were not born  in the right time of thc. moon to  make a successful dairyman anyway. If -you cannot find pleasure  and satisfaction in looking after the ���������������������������  details of the business, noting the  improvements and failures, studying into the reasons for thc .success ���������������������������  or failure, either there is something  lacking in your early education or  else you have mistaken your'calling  la nd-had.-bcttcr.._ continue raising,.,._  wheat to sell as long as thc farm  will produce paying crops, then sell  the farm and go ,fo town to live. _  Oj, what would be better still.'seek  some other employment than farming at once. Life is largely what  we make it. and a young man  should carefully study his own inclination and capabilities in choosing an occupation for life. ��������������������������� If ho_  has no natural liking for domes-'  tic animals and takes no'interest  in animal life, better choose soma  other occupation than farming, for  thc raising of animals of sonic kind  is a necessary adjunct to the best  development of the farm.  SYSTEMATIC FARMING.  To keep accounts which give r������������������-  suits-comparable fr. m year to year,  thc farm must be arranged according to a system.

Thc live stock  'and other means of- reducing the  crops to more finished forms, bringing higher prices per acre, must-  also be managed in a more systematic manner, so tha. the general  results in their relations to each  crop can be recorded and compared, that the unprofitable enterprises  may thus be reduced and more attention devoted, to those which give  the best profits.  ;���������������������������.-' tx  f\  \  ft.

Any colored silk may be washed  thia way.  Defacod Table.���������������������������A table of beautiful wood, which had lost its beauty  by having hot thing3 set - on it,  burning through the varnish and  down to tho wood, was made to look  as good as new by this treatment:  First, it waa washed-with a strong  solution of lye put on with a brush,  as it is bad for tho hands. This  loosened the varnish, which then  was scraped off entirely with a piece  of glass. The boards, being bare,  wero rubbed smooth with coarse  sandpaper, aud when in good condition were rubbed with-crude oil.  This leaves a dull finish, which  pleased the owner better than one  that shone, but if the polish is preferred it could be given with varnish. All the marks' of service will  disappear from a- table or other  piece of wood treated in this manner, and the labor' necessary to produce the result is not great.  Cleaning Light Coats.���������������������������You.can  make a light coat look like new for  exactly G% cents.' Here is how, to  do it: Buy 25 cents'. worth of fuller'? earth at any drug store.  Spread the coat on,a sheet, sprinkle  ic- plentifully with fuller's earth,  rubbing-the powder well into the  coat with a soft, cloth or brush, allow the coat to-lie for forty-eight  hour.. Then shake the fuller's  earth off on to the sheet, brush the  coat with a stiff brush,-and shake  well.. The' coat will look like new  and there will be no odor as with  gasoline. Put the fuller's earth  back in the box- and use it three  times more. Cleaners charge... 1.50  for exactly this same process.  SOUPS. '  .

CRITICAL  FOR  ASQUITH  . London, Feb. 22.���������������������������All the world realizes this morning how completely  Asquith has failed. Last night's debate leaves the - life of the ministry  _hanging=by-=a-thread^which^MrHRc d-4  mond, Mr. Barnes or the group of  openly ^malcontent Radical forwards  can cut at any moment. The hopelessness of the ministerial position is  best indicated by the fact that Mr.  Asquith announces that he will not  do what a probable .majority of his  supporters and all his allies demand  as indispensible. _ He refuses to ask  the King for guarantees now and will  do no more than vaguely promise to  go to the King if at some remote  future time should the lords reject  the veto bill, which he does not even  attempt to outline.  The ministerial papers are greatly  agitated, as is deducible from the  following expression of the Radical  Morning Leader: "Parliament passed  from sensation to sensation till at  last it adjourned, brought to a  breathless standstill by the terrifying  situation which now confronts it.  This ancient    kingdom! is' faced with  the-possibility of a complete breakdown of government. The revolution  so lightly began by the lords in November is working itself out in every  form of confusion."

THE WORLD OF THE BLIND  BY ONE WHO RECENTLY  SAW  FOE  FIRST  TIME.  a Marvellously Beautiful  Woman Who Was Horn Blind Sees  World.  In all Lhc marvels wrought by  jurgicaJ. skill iii would be diflicult  to nnd a rival to thc operation per-  fromed at the Ite-nt Uounty Ophthalmic ��������������������������� Ro spit*. England, a tew  days ago, which gave sight to a vt ������������������  man who had never seen ^during tho  thirty-six years of hcr life-.  Annie Hubbard, the snbjocb ot  this wonderful feat oi surgery, was  born blind, and had oeasedto hope  for sight. ' She had acquired all  .those arts and almost supernatural  developments of the remaining  sense, wheroby blind people place  themselves almost on a level, for  all practical purposes, with those  who can see. Indeed, from force of  habit, sho still makes pathetic use  of tho verb "to touch," when she  means 'to sec."'  STORIES OF  SHADOW-LAND.  -A weird ans wonderful wovrl is  that of the blind. Exactly what it  is like none but the blind can ever  know; for in the task of describing  and explaining one's ment.il impressions of an unseen thing, one  rt constantly b_l-ked by thoughts  and feelings that will nofc translate  themselves into human speech.  Yet, so far as ib is possible- to do  so, Miss Hubbard can.tell wonderful stories of a kind of shadow-  land, almost colorless, "although,"  she says,."at times I was able to  picture ih ray mind the color which  they tell rae new is called green."  PEOPLE VERY  LARGE.  With living creatures, with scenery, t .amcars, houses, and tho like,  it was often very different. A horse,  a tree, a passing tramca'r, puzzled  and even frightened her.  She has a difScufcly in explaiaing  precisely what was hcr mental conception of such things as these, except that in all cases the size of the  reality greatly 'exceeds what she  had imagined it to bc.  "Even human beings arc ever so  much:, larger than I had imagined  they would be," she explained.  "You sec, when you are blind, you  rely on your touch fco tell you what  things look like; but, of course, with  anything big you can only touch  a little part of it at a' time. So  you cannot manage to guess how  high or how broad it- is.  TERRIFIED BY A HOUSE..  "'The first time I saw a horse I  was torrilied. I had no idea that  there was anything alive so bijj  It was quite close Lo me, aud i  thought it looked a torrible creature./'  In the world of tho blind, a horse,  to take a good instance, seems  hardly to have a definite shape at  all.  Thc word "horse" afc once conjures up to a seeing person a mental picture of the animal. To %  "MiTtd^pcT-nTfT^if^^  brings a strange compound of mental impression���������������������������a clattering noise,  a faintly acid smell, a sense of  coarse hairiness, and perhaps a  faili.i vibration of the earth���������������������������but no  clearly   defined   impression.  CONCEPTION OE A TREE.  A tree, again, is a vast, unyielding substance, rough- in texture,  nnd capable of a swishing noise. Of  a tree Miss Hubbard says: "1 was  surprised at thc size of (he tup  part i>f the first, one 1 touched  that i.s to say. saw."  Hut she had one thing to say  which revealed to me a far stranger thing than tho more material  fittings of tlm world of the blind.  She told mc how the blind sec char  ncler.  "Yon," slv ��������������������������� said, "can toll by a  person's face what kind of a nature  ic has. If he i.s angry, or happy,  lis face tells you so; and perhaps  you think that blind pcople who  cannot, see faces cannot read a  stranger's character.  NOTICIi   LITTLE THINGS.  "JJut wc can. You rely so much  pn your sight that little changes  n the tone of a speaker's voice,  ittlo movements, changes of  ireatliing, escape you.' They are  there, all the same; and as they  are all that the blind have to go by,  wc are all the keener to notice  them.  "Tf you were to shut your eyes  you would find it hard to tell what-  kind of a person you were talking  to. But if your eyes had been al  ways shut, you would notice hundreds of signs which would toll you  tt once."  OTHER SKNSKS DEVELOPED.  T .at is why  the  blind  are  <.'������������������������������������������������������>>  such marvellously acufco judges of  character. They read the subtle  signs which, while a man may be  schooling his features and outward  appearance to give certain impression, escape him unnoticed, and betray his real thoughts and. emotions.  Miss Hubbard, like most blind  people, has developed her unimpaired senses to a remarkable degree, and, as is only natural at  present, finds herself still relying  on them rather than on hor new ������������������mu{  occasionally uncontrollable gift ol.  sight. She finds it easier to ascend  steps with her eyes shut than with  them epen, for sho ha-s-yefc to learn  how to foous her sight, and experiences difficulty in gauging distance aright.  Even when blind sho could do  housework, or could take astranger all over tho town of Maidsteno,  and .tell him infallibly whero -he  stood and what he saw beforo him.  A GREAT REVELATION.  It is almost weird to think that  one rwho can do such things in  pitchy- darkness, where a normal  person would be helpless, has still  so many simple thing fco learn. She  has to learn the names of different  colors, for instance; although she  can differentiate between red an;!  yellow, sho has to learn which is  which.  If her sight becomes strong  enough to permit of the.strain, she  will beg-in to learn how to read  in the ordinary way. She can read  blind type easily, but printed letters are strange hieroglyphics to  her.  Meanwhile, with this strange and  beautiful world new before her, she  is as happy .a woman as 'any in  England.  "Even if my sifht never gefcs better than it is'to-d ay," she said, "I  shall never be able to express thc  wonderful joy it has brought into  my life.'  _*���������������������������--  CAT AND FOX MEET.     .  And Reynard   Retires  tho Worse  for tho Meeting.  In a recent number of a German  sporting pap or a forester describes  a scene which Jie witnessed in a  clearing in tho forest.  Re  came  one afternoon  upon   a  big black cat, occupied apparently  in the pursuit-of  mice,  and  from  the   shelter of   a tree  he  watched  lit.   movements through a field glass.  j After  a few  minutes   an _ old  fox  (made its appearance. Slinking_slowly forward   toward   the-cat,  it lay  down within a few steps of it, ready  to spring.  Tho cat had observed its enemy,  but beyond keeping a sharp lookout  on its movements it made no sign.  Shortly t young fox joined the old  one, ' and almost immediately  bounded at the cat, which sprang  aside and struck its assailant so  efficaciously across its faco with its  sharp claws that it retired as quickly as ifc came. After an interval  the old fox, advancing slowly and  carefully, made its attack; bufc the  result was the same, the cat, spitting and hissing, struck out hard,  and the fox retired discomfited.   A _minuto_ afterwarjJL __ifc _..again  sprang forward, bufc this time .the  cat got much the best of ifc and was  left in peace.  ->.-  ITALY'S NEW LEASE OF LIFE.  Hcr Commerce nil Influence in tlio  Near East Growing Fast.  Perhaps it is not generally known  how remarkably Italy's commerce  in the near East has grown within  recent years. In i'JOO her exports  to Turkey were valued afc about  .7,590,000, and her imports from  the same country at about .5,. _0,-  000. Four years later exports had  nearly doubled and imports had increased by   . 2,500,0'JO.  This development of commerce  along lhe routes once dominated by  thc Venetian republic is said to bo  due in largo part to tho initiative  of the present king, and accordiug  to tho Atlantic Monthly has  brought with ib renewed prosperity  to thc ancient and glorious commercial city.  Nor is this eastward activity con-  'fincd to trade and industry. It is  well known that many inhabitants  of fche Dalmatian coast, though  Australian subjects, are Italia... in  race, language and sympathies.  Powerful unofficial organizations,  like tho Danto Society, are busily  promoting tho Italian language and  culture throughout tho rejuvenate.!  Turkish empire. Ifc is even asserted that in consequence of improved  relations between Quirinal and  Vatican religious orders, especially  tho Franciscans, havo eagerly taken  up this Italian --������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������������onoganda.

Iu the Christmas number of the  Farmers' Advocate is an argument  b. !_r. John Campbell, of YVood-  ville, Onfc., in favor of young men  remaining ou the farm. He tells  th.- sM>r,r o-f kis own fe.yh.6_, and  the rougih farm Wv>rk that waa its  out_.fcap._ing feature. Me was anxious, like ninotonths of the fanner's sons of the day, to get away  | from tho farm and make an easier,  ' more comfortable living in town.  Presently a friend secured for him  a- position behind the counter. The  boy waa naturally keen to accept ifc,  bufc finally yielded to the persuasion  of hia father, and remained on tho  f*. ._. To-day he is in possession of  a 200-acre farm, from which fche net  profit, after deducting living expenses, has not been less than $1,-  000 per annum in the past twenty  years. How much more ifc has been  Mr. Can_ipbeH';s modesty forbids  him fco mention.  FEW FAILURES ON" THE FARM.  Looking back over the friends of  his youth who left thc farm ���������������������������' and  entered business, Mr. Campbell  finds that they have almost all  "dropped ������������������ut' of sight, whilo the  great majority of those that stayed  with tha farm are in comfortable  circumstances." (Statistics quoted  by tho Farmer's Advocate show  I fchafc Mr. Campbell's experience is  not uficomiH-H"i. fur in tht. Eastern  Provinces those who farm have a  record of 5 per cent, failures, while  those who enter all other sorfcs of  bueiaess ie the leading American  and Canadian cities have a failure  record of 95 per cent. A striking  instance of a farmer succeeding  in the face of a serious physical  handicap is mentioned by Mr.  Campbell.. A man of his acquaintance lost a hand in his youth, bufc  stuck to farming. He bought. 50  acres, worked it to show a- profit,  then sold and bought a 100-acro  farm. Prospering, he bought another 10O-acre farm on which was a  $3,000 houso. Today the single-  handed farmer is worth $20,000.  MORE MONEY IN ONTARIO.  Another acquaintance started  out as a farm hand, and saving his  wages, soon had enough to rent a  small farm in the neighborhood. Hc  moved to another farm in a few-  years and his profits from the two  rented properties enabled him to  purchase a 200-acre farm. In a few  years two mor.e farms were bought,  and finally another hundred aci'cs  ,-vs.s so(cured for his eldest son.  Whon the farmer died recently, his  estate netted $23,000, exclusive bf  the farm bought for thc young man.  . pnrtciularly interesting case was  that of a farm hand who rented a  farm, and worked ifc for a few  years. Ho had a large family, and  feeling that hc required more land  -ic-pr-ospect-ed-for=_a^season_in_t h.i_  Canadian West. He concluded,  however, that he could do better  back in Ontario. So he bought a  fine 400-.acre farm, and in a short  tim6 henc6 the erstwhile farm hand  and his sons will bc full owners of  a  $25,000 or  $30,000 property.  WHAT MACHINERY HAS DONE.  'These men all realized what only  a" minority  of farmers'   sons have  yofc understood, namely, that there  is comparatively little hard manual  labor  on  a  farm  nowadays.     The  invention of   machinery  has  made  lifo easier for the farmer just as it  has for the artisan.   No one would  claim that the farmer who means to  succeed docs   not   need to    work  hard; but hard  work is  the price  of success in every calling.    Compared with thc labor of forty years  ������������������vgo  phvsical   toil   has  disappeared  from  agricultural  life  in   Ontario  ; It is also possible for the average  jf!i:..e" t .  c-tfnn.ai't- luxuries    that  ��������������������������� were unknown to his fathers.    For  the survival of ho "hayseed" type  j there is little excuse.   Farmers, as  ia class,  have  better   opportunities  | f^r  education   and   social   improvc-  | ment than  almost any other class  ! of  the   community.      In    modem,  scientific farming there is plenty of  scope- for the exercise of the high-  ' esfc'inental faculties.   The time has  1 come when the    over-fond    farmer  land his wife should no longer dedicate   to   tho   ministry,   the  law or  ! medicino  the  son   who  shows the  ! greatest i.pfcitudo  for  study.    That  is the particular son who should be  I kept on the farm, nowadays.  EAST AND WEST.  Ono remark of Mr. Campbell's is  purticitl.v.lv worth   quoting:  "If the present-day young men of  thc Eastern I.ioviuc.es were willing  to undergo such hardships, live so  sparingly, and be content with  shacks i'or many years, a. thousands oof those who go West are  obliged to put up with, verily many  sections in the East now cultivated  nofc half, and thab done in a halfhearted and most expensive manner, would soon become Midlothian and Midlands in Canada." Tho  West has certain opportunities that  the East does not possess; and tae  East has as many opportunities that  tho Wesfc is without, and a few comforts besides. As the writer in the  Advooae put ifc. "Success depends  more ou the man than on tho Province,"  ______:  _������������������i_l_-B_  -*_  WEALTH ������������������N Tin, AMAZON.  About the Fertile Regions of South  . Ani-iica.  Bolivia cast of fche Andes is ono  of tho richest regions of tho,wrorld  in timber, rubber and minerals, and  ifc has some fino agricultural lands.  It has no outlet on the Pacific coast.  Its only outlet is through ho Amazon and Para, and since peace was  made with Brazil a railroad activity  in this direction has taken possession  of the  whole   republic.  East of Bolivia is tho great Brazilian State of Malfco Grosso, a territory nearly threo times the size of  Texas. A dozen largo navigable  rivers pour north-eastward out of  this State into the Amazon. According to the Engineering Maga  zi_o :ts .sj.rvovilt._rai, mining a?id  grazing possibilities are very great.  It is said that a great deal of this  territory will grew as .fino lo. g  staple cot-ton a - Mississippi or Alabama. Thc Brazilian Government  has matured a plan to connect by  canal ono of the tributaries of the  Amazon with one of tho tributaries  of t-.v. .La Plata in this State, thus  opening an all inland water route  from Para to Buenos Ayres, a distance of nearly 6,000 miles. This  extensive- route would reach the  whole interior of tho continent.  Turning to the wesfc# and northwest tho Amazon is navigable in its  chief tributaries in Peru, Ecuador  and Colombia to the very walls of  the Andes. One may ro. aboard a  steamer at Para and remain aboard  until ifc has plowed its -way. up to  the hill city of Iquitos and.several  hundred miles beyond. Porn has  little Pacific coast trade now and  the development of this country  must pour its wealth in ?o Para.  But if Brazil ano Para had none  of these Andean'republics to draws  trade from the development of the  j Brazilian Amazon Valley alone  must in time amount to untold  wealth. In' thc States of Para and  the Amazons and the federal territory of Acre there are near the  water's edp;c ten million rubber  ! bearing trees of the Hevca variety.  These trees if properly tapped will  live indefinitely and steadily increase their yield. The State of  Para is considerably larger than  Texas and much of this State will  grow excellent cotton.  _-5������������������ . .  EAGER TO SEE TIIE SOLDIERS.

TLOPOSED    INSURANCE BILL.  Opinions of   Fire   Insurance Premium Payers of Canada.  The following    extracts    from a  booklet recently issued.by the C������������������m-  mittoe of Insurance Premium payers of Canada will be ftmnd interesting by all classes of thc   community in view of the'proposed Insurance Bill now under consideration by the Dominion Government.  The opinions herein expressed are  taken verbatim from the literature  issued by thc Committee and   we  assume no responsibility for them.  The   public,   however,    can    draw  their .w_ conclusions as to tha correctness of these views    from  the  facts "at their disposal.    The Committee of Insurance   Premium Payers is composed'of    business   men  representing all classes of business  in Canada.    This Committee came  together for the purpose of organizing definite  opposition   to   certain  , clauses hi .the-proposed Insurance  . .Bill which  were  conwdered harmful to the best interests of the business community," and te offer Bome  opposition to the full sway of what  they call the Insurance Combine.  The following   extra.is    from fche  booklet issued'by'the Committee are  interesting in this connection :���������������������������  "Because of fche combine to which  reforncc has been previously made,  rates are excessive; insurance required to reasonably expedite large  business transactions cannot be obtained. - Necessary and v<cry desir-  . able forms of insurance in the proper^ conduct of business are not  procurable, and on the other hand,  conditions are impo'sod' by the Licensed Companies which are'not required by. other offices, and the operation of which entail additional  burdens upon the Premium Payers  of Canada. ��������������������������� _ ���������������������������   ���������������������������  Other insurance than can be obtained in Canada is therefore most  desirable, and in many cases, absolutely essential, and the, Premium  Payers want the Insurance   Act to  provide  the    means    whereby  fche  right of private contract outside of  Canada, now an inalienable   right  tff thc citizen, may be carried put,  " and   the   co-incident requirements  of inspection    and    adjustment of  losses within Canada not interfered' with.   ,"...- -      ....  The   Premium    Payers   do    not  ,   wish fche Insurance Act to lower fche  bars whereby unlicensed insurance  companiesr would . be- permitted  to  canvas or'solicit-business'in Canada, to advertise or open offices in  .  1f_ie country, bufc they strongly protest against any legislation  which  will restrict their right of contract,  by imposing penalties on the individuals who will perform in Canada, the acts incident to that contract, as for example, thc inspection of>a risk or adjustment of a  less."  tants that has no. rates, as there  are no roads .or public institutions  of any kind and consequently no  expenses.  Kempton, near Bradford, can  probably lay successful claim fco the  distinction of being the longest village in the world, as ifc straggle.  along the road for a distance of  seven miles. Sometimes a village  will entirely disappear, having  been . built 'cither on thc edge of  the crumbling cliffs that make .art  of the coastline, or over an ancient  mine. One of thc latter class is in  Shropshire, and each year one or  more of the cottages tumble as the  earth sinks beneath it.

Dodd's Kidney Pills are the best Kidney medicine I ever heard of."  - If you' follow Mr.  Snyder's ' example and use Dodd's Kidney  Pills  for  slight  urinary    disorders,, you  will never be troubled with Gravel.

A curious source of wealth is reported by- the   French Con.til   at  Mongtze, in Upper Tonkin.   It lies  in wood mines.   The wood originally was a pine    forest,  which    tlie  earth swallowed in some cataclysm.  Some of the trees are a yard in diameter. ; They lie in  a slanting di-  ���������������������������rection  and'in  sandy  soils  which  cover them to a depth of about ten  feet, and as they are all well preserved it is thought \he geological  convulsion which buried them cannot bc of very great antiquity.
