Friday. The harrow was laid down
to him at Enderby, ancl didn't cost
him a cent. It was a prize from the

to be satisfied with third choice.

days after his arrival home Mt. Russell, Sr., passed away. Of the deceased the Acton Free Press says:
"Mr. Russell had been in poor
health _for__ se.veral jnonths, _but_was
able to drive out until about ten days
before his death, when a general
break-down set in. * * * The surviving members of the family are:
Dr. John, of New York; Robert, of
Medicine Hat, Alta.; William, of Enderby, B. C., and Miss Margaret at

dealings. He was a man of strong
opinions which he very freely expressed. He was one of whom it
could be truthfully said: "His word
was as good as his bond." He was a
successful man financially and was
generally known as "Banker John."

T  C11APTKR  I.���������������������������(Continued)  A Born  and Bred New Englander  111:' rent was forty dollars a month  and I signed a three years' lease  bcfo:e 1 left. The next week  was a busy one for us both. We bought  almost a thousand dollars' worth of furniture on the installment plan and  even then we didn't seem to get more  than tlie bare necessities. 1 hadn't any  idea that house furnishings cost so  much. But if the bill had come to five  times that I wouldn't have cared. The  installmcu's didn't amount to very  much a week, and I already saw Morse  promoted ami myself filling his position  at twenty-five hundred. 1 hadn't yet  got over the feeling 1 had at eighteen  that life was a big adventure and that  a man with strong legs and a good back  couldn't lose. With Ruth at my side  I bought like a king. Though 1 never  liked the - lea of running into debt this  didn't seem like .debt. J had only to  look into her dear blue eyes to feel myself safe in buying the store itself.  Ruth herself sometimes hesitated but,  as I told her, we might as well start  right and once for all as to go at it  half heaitedly.  The following Saturday we were  married. .My vacation wasn't due for  another month so we decided not to  wait. The old folks came down from  the farm and wc just called in a clergyman and wove married in the front parlor of the aunt's house. Tt was both  very simple and very solemn. For us  botli the ceremony meant the taking  of a sacred oath of so serious a nature  as to forbid much, lighthoarfednoss.  And yet I did wish that the lather and  mother and aunt had not dressed in  black and cried during it all. Ruth  wore a while dress and looked very  beautiful and didn't seem afraid. As  for ine, my knees trembled and I was  chalk white. I think it was thc old  people and the room, for when it was  over and we came out into the sunshine a{rain 1 felt allright except a  bit light-headed. I remember'that the  street ami the houses and tlie cars seemed liko very sniall matters.  x   chapter n.  Thirty Dollars a Week  When, with Ruth on my arm, I walked up the steps of the bouse and unlocked the front door, 1 entered upon a  new lire. It was my first taste of  ���������������������������' home since "my mother died and added  ��������������������������� to tnat-was this new love which was  finer than anything I had ever dreamed  about. It seemed hard to have to leave  every morning at half past six aud Dot  get back until after five at night; but  to offset this'we used to get up as early  as four o'clock during the long summer days. Many the timo even iu  June Ruth and I ate our breakfast by  lump-light. It gave us an extra' hour,  and she was bred in the country where  getting up iu the morning is no great  hardship.  We could" |t afford a servant, and  we didn't,-;want one. Ruth was-a fine  cook, and J certainly did justice to her  dishes after ten years of restaurants  and boarding-houses. On rainy days,  when we couldn't, get out, she used to  do her cooking early so that I might  watch her. Jt seemed a lot moro like  her cooking when 1 saw her pat out  the dough and put it in the oven instead of coming home and finding it  all done. 1 used to fill up my pipe and  sit by the kitchen stove until I had  just time to catch thc train by sprinting.  But when the  was liue we'd  cither taiit- a long walirrh'rotigh the "big  pari; reservation, which was near the  house, or we'd fuss over the garden.  We had twenty-two inches of radishes,  thirty-eight inches of lettuce, four tomato plants, two hills of corn, tVrce  hills of beans and about four yards of  pens. Fn addition to this Ruth had  squeezed a "cranium into one corner  and a fern into another and planted  sweet alyssum around the whole busi-  - no*s.��������������������������� -i\-very one - out. --hcio --planned - to  raise his uwn vegetable--. Jt was supposed \i> cut down expenses, Imt 1 noticed the market man always did a good  business.  I had met two or three of the men  at the I'limiiry club and they introduced me to the nthers. We we're all  earning about tlie same salaries and  living in about ihe sumo type of house.  Still theio we,e diiTYrcnco*, and you  could tell more by tiie wive, than the  husbands those whoso salaries went  ovor two thousand. Two or throe of  the men were in banks, one was in a  leather linn, ono was au agent for an  insurance company, another was with  the Standard Oil. and two or three  others were with firms like mine. Most  of them had been settled out hero three  or four years and had children. In  a general way they looked comfortablo  and happy enough, but you heard a  good ileal of talk among tliem about  the high cost of living, and you couldn't  help noticing that those who dressed  the best; had the fewest children." One  or two of them owned horses, but even  they felt obliged to explain that they  saved  the cost  of thom  in car fares.  They all called nnd left their carda  but lii at first year we didn't sec much  of.them. There wasn't room in my life  for anyone but Ruth at that time. I  didn't see even the old ollice gang except during business hours and at  lunch.  The rent scaled my salary down to  one thousand and eighty dollars at one  swoop. Then we had to save out at  least fiv;. dollars a week to pay on the  furniture.    This left eight hundred and  twenty, or fifteen dollars and seventy-  five cents a week, to eo\ er running expenses.    We  paid  cash  for everything,  and   though   we   never   had   much   left  over at the end of the week and never  anything at the end of the month, we  had about everything we wanted.    For  one tiling our tastes were not extravagant ami we did no entertaining.    Our  grocjry and meat bill amounted to from  five to seven dollars a week.    Of course  I   had  my  lunches   in  town, but I got  out of  those   for twenty  cents.      My  daily  car fare was twenty cents more  which brought my total w    kly expenses  up to about three dollars. - This left a  comfortable   margin -of   from   five   to  seven   dollars   for   light,   coal,   clothes  and  amusements.'   In   the  summer  the  first three items didn't amount to much  so some weeks we put most of this into  the  furniture.    Butr the  city  was  new  to Ruth, especially at night, so we wero  in town a good deal.    She used to meet  me at the ollice and we'd walk about  the city and then take dinner at some  little French restaurant and then maybe go to a concert or the theatre.    She  made everything new to mc again.    At  the  theatre  she  used  to  perch  on  the  edge of h ;r seat so breathless,  so  responsive,   thnt   E   often   saw   the   old-  timers watch her instead  of thc show.  I   often   did   myself.    And   sometimes  it  seemed   as   though   the   whole  company acted to her alone.  Those days were perfect. The only  incident to mar them was the death  of Ruth's parents. ������������������ They died suddenly and left an estate of six or seven  hundred dollars. Ruth insisted upon  putting that into the furniture. But  in our own lives every day was as fair  as the first. My salary came as regularly as an annuity and there was every  prospect for advancement. /She garden  did Avell, and Ruth became^acquainted  with most of the women in a sociable  way. She joined a sewing circle, which  in t twice a month chiefly, I guess, for  the purpose of finding out about one  another's husbands. At any rate she  told me more about them than I would  have learned in ten years.  Still, during the fall and winter we  kept pretty much by ourselves, not deliberately,   but   because  neither  of  us  cared  particularly about whist  parties  and such things but preferred to spend  together what time we had.    And then  I guess Ruth was a little shy about her  clothes.-   She -dressed   mighty   well .to  my eye but she made most of her things  herself  and  didn't  care  much     about  stjle.    She didn't notice the difference  at home, but when she was out among  others,   they  made  her  feel  it.'. How-  over,   spring -came   around   again   and  wc forgot all about those details.   We  didn't go in  town so-much that summer and used to spend more tinu. on our  piazza".    I saw more of the. men in this  way and  found them a pleasant, companionable lot.    They asked me to join  the Neighborhood Club and I did, more  to  meet  them  half  way  than  because  J wanted to.    There wo play d billiards  and   discussed   the   stock   market   and  furnaces,    All of them had schemes for  making   fortunes   if   only  they   had   a  few thousand dollars capital. " Now and  then you'd find a group of them in one  corner discussing a rumor that so and  so had lost his job.    They spoke of this  as they would  of a  death.   Bnt none  of thoso subjects interested me, especially in view of what I was looking forward to in iny own family.  In thc afternoons of the early fall  the women sent over jellies and such  stuff to Ruth and dropped in upon hor  ^4H*t^wm-sfiere<Wa^l-vie-G^^Slio--v.i5ed-==Ufc  repeat,  it  to  me at  night  with  a  gay  little laugh and her eyes sparkling like  diamonds. She was happier n*w than  E had ever seen her and so was L myself. When T went in town in the  morning 1  felt very important.  J thought I bad touched thc climax  of life when I married Ruth, but when  the boy came he lifted mo a notch  higho'.' Arid with him he brought me  a new wife in-Faith,-wiUioul, taking ore  whit from the o> i. Sweetheart, wife  and mother now, she revealed to mo new  ���������������������������iepi'p- of wo'i'.-iHionil.  She taught me. too, what real courage  is. I was the coward when the time  came. I had taken a day olf, but the  doctor ordered mc out of the house.  1 went down to the club and T. felt  more oue of tho neighborhood that day  than 1 ever did before or afterwards,  lt, was Saturday, and during the afternoon a number of the men came in and  just silently gripped  my hand.  The women, too, seemed to fake a  new interest in us. When Ruth was  able to sit up they brought in numberless little tilings. But you'd have  t nought, it was their house and not  mine the way they treated me. When  any of them camo T t lt as though I  didn't belong there and ought to tip-  too out,  We'd been saving up during the  summer for this emergency so that we  had enough to pay for the doctor and  the nurse, but that was only the beginning of the new expenses, du the first  place we had to have a servant now.  T secured a girl who knew how to cook  after a fashion, for four dollars a week.  But that wasn't by any means what  she cost us. Tn spite of Ruth's supervision the girl wasted as much as she  used, so that our provision bill was  nearly doubled. Tf we hadn 't succeed-  I ed in paying for fhe furniture before  this F don't know what we would have  done. A? it was I found my salary  pretty well strained, 1 hadn't any idea  that bo small a thing as a baby could  cost so much. Ruth had >inndc most of  his things, but 1 know that some of his  shirts cost as much as mine.  When the boy was older Ruth insisted upon' getting along without a girl  again. J didn't approve of this, but  J saw that it would make her happier  to try anyway. JIow in the world she  managed to do it I. don't know, but  she did. This gave her an excuse for  not going out���������������������������though it was an excuse that made me half ashamed of  myself���������������������������and so we saved in another  way. Even with this wo just . made  both ends meet, and that was all.  Thc boy grew like a weed, and beforo  J knew he was five years .old. Until  he began to walk and talk 1 didn't  think of him as a possible man. He  didn't seem like anything iu particular.  lie was just soft aud round and warm.  But when he began to wear knickerbockers he..set me to thinking hard,  lie wasn't going to remain always a  baby; he was going to grow into a boy  and then a young man and ,,before 1  knew it would be facing the very same  problem that confronted mo. And that  problem was how to get enough ahead  of the game to give him a fair start  in life. I realized, too, that I wanted  him to do something better than I had  done. When I stopped to think of it  E had accomplished mighty little. I  had lived and that was about all.' That  I had lived happily was due to Ruth.  But if I was finding difficulty in keeping even with the game now, what was  T going to do when the youngster would  prove a decidedly more serious item of  expense?  I talked this over with Ruth nnd we  both decided that somehow, in somo  way, wc must save some money every  year. We started hi by reducing our  household expenses still further. But  it seemed as though fate were against  us for prices rose just, enough to absorb all our little economies. Flour  went up and sugar went up, and though  we had done away with meat almost  wholly now, vegetables went up. So, too,  did coal. Not only that, but ,we had  long since found it impossible to keep  ourselves as we had that first year.  Little by little we had been drawn  into the social life of the neighborhood.  Not-a month went by but what there  was a dinner or two or a whist party  or a dance. Personally, I didn't care  about sueh things, but as Ruth had become "a matron and in consequence had  been thrown more in contact with the  women, she had' lost her' shyness an_d  grown more sociable. She often suggested declining an invitation, but we  couldn't decline one without declining  all. I saw clearly enough that" 1 had  no right to do this. She did more work  than I and did not have the daily  change. To- have made a social exile  of her would have been, to make her  little better than a slave. But it cost  money. It cost a lot of money. We  had to do our part iu return,"and though  Ruth accomplished this by careful buying and all sorts of clever devices, the  item became a big one in the year's expenses.  T began to look forward with some  anxiety for the next raise. At the  office I hunted for extra work with an  eye upon the place above; but though  I found the work nothing came of-it  but extra hours. In fact, T began to  think myself lucky to hold the job  E had, for a gradual change of methods  had been slowly going on in the office.  Mechanical adding machines had cost  a dozen men their jobs; a-card system  of  bookkeeping had  made it possible  that it looked brand.;now. I think some  of the neighbors even thought I was  extravagant in my dressing.  . She did the same for herself and had  caught the knack- of seeming to dress  stylishly without really doing so. She  had beautiful hair and this in- itself  made her look well dressed. As for the  boy he was a model for them all.  Jn the meanwhile the boy had grown  into short trousers and before we knew  it lie a as in school. It made it lonesome for her during the day when he  began   to  trudge off every  morning at  nine o'clock. She began to look forward to Saturdays as eagerly as the  boy did. Then the next thing we knew  he'd start off even earlier on that day  lo join his playmates. Sunday was the  only day either, of us had him to ourselves.  (To  bo  continued)  OSLER ON ACCURACY  Sir "William Osier has a hard time being understood. His chloroform theory  still sticks to him. And, althougu thc  niatter has been explained in the press,  many Toronto people still think he has  resigned his post as regius professir of  medicine at Oxford to return to the  United States because he has accepted  the Sjlliman lectureship for 19i2 at  Yale University. This latter appointment merely cans for a course of six  lectures at Yale at the end of next  summer.  *ihe '/chloroforming" speech, by the  most famous physician ever produced  by Toronto, was made at the Johns  Hopkins University-on .'February 22nd,  .1905, and'still continues to be misunderstood. To show how easy misunderstandings aro, even in thc simplest matters, Sir. William recalls a  case,, hc ouce had. Tt was that of a  dyspeptic, and he advised the man to  "drink hot water an hour before breakfast every morning."  Some days after Dr. Osier asked his  patient how hc was getting along.  "Well/' replied the latter, "J. can't  work that hot water business."  "Why?" asked thc doctor in surprise. ���������������������������  ."I've tried my best," said tho patient, "but I can't keep it up i'or.more  than fifteen minutes at a stretch.3'  Sir William is now well past the sixty  year mark himself, having been born  at Bond Head in 1S49.  the aspect of isolated cotton-bales. Tho  nimbus, though having a form that is  sinister and threatening, has au outline indecisive and evanescent.' Tbe  stratus proper almost touches the earth  at times and seems allied to all transitions of cloud form, justifying its name-  by broad layers of dead white.  The sirrus presages good weather, but  if it has a complicated or rapid movement announces a storm. A veil of  cirro-stratus extending like a broad  sheet in a directior different from that  of the wiiui means a lowering of Lho  barometer, Tf a halo at such times  coincides with the direction of the wind  and the lowering of the barometer, a  period of cold weather is assured; but  if, on the other hand, the buroinptcr'is  stationary, lain alone will follow tho '  appearance of the halo. Tho cumulus  resembling cotton-bales means good  weather, but sometimes when the baao  has a bag-like appearance rain'may be  looked forward to. The cumulo-nimbus  brings hail, and thc nimbus persistent  rain or snow. If the heavens appear  light, and especially blue, around the  latter and the barometer is low a return  of good weather is in sight.  OBESITY IN, TREES  Plants suffer from the "maladies of  men. Obesity ailliets plants as it  afflicts man. Trees accumulate unhealthy fat by continued absorption of  superabundant and too substantial  nutritive principles. Tn the tree, as iu  man, superalimentation generates pathological phenomena; it.,develops an uncontrollable tendency to increase of Lhe  soft tissues.  The pear-tree shows a tendency' to  transform its woody and spongy tissues  anil to decompose and reduce tlie strong  quality of its sap by excessive digestion of nutritive principles and of  water. This is tho regular form of progress of the obesity of the tree; and  thc obesify of tlie tree is the equivalent  of fatty ,degeneration, oedema, dropsy,  and all other organic or functional  troubles of the man who assimilates  Iiis food too fast. For a time, but only  for a time, the fat tree yields a' rich  harvest of succulent, fruit;  but all  the  ripening,   its  time,   while   its   fruit   js  REDMOND'S OPINION  Thc   following  pressed by  understanding  he  6 opinion recently ex-  John Redmond is an aid in  his character and -the  advocates.    .

Neither the wife, thc boy nor I. was  sick a day for Ave all had sound bodies  to start with. Our country-bred ancestors didn't need a will to leave us  those. If at times we felt a trifle  pinched, especially in the matter of  clothes, it was wonderful how rich Ruth  contrived to mako us foel. She knew  how to take care of things, and though  I didn't spend half what some of the  men spent on their suits, T went in town  every morning looking better than two-  thirds of them. I was inspected from  head to foot beforo T started and there  wasn't, a wrinkle or a spot so small thai  it could last twenty four hours.

CLOUDS AS  WEATHER PROPHETS  Clouds and mists are composed of  drops of wafer formed by thc condensation-of-vapor,-and these ofton-coiilain  microscopic crystals of ice. Drops of  water iu clouds have dimensions varying from ,00(; to .017 millimeters. Thoso  minute drops either float in tho atiiios-  phcru or fall to the earth, always  evaporating to a greater or loss extent  when striking warmer or drier air.  This incessant movement of the molecules in suspension determines the  duration of a cloud form. -\ cloud can  remain stationary only during a constant, condensation of vapor, and so no  cloud at ii given moment is ever composed of exactly equal elements. This  explains why cloud forms come and go  with such rapidity  Altogether there are ten chief cloud  forms into which all others merge. Thc  cirrus resembles filaments, feathers, or  Jibrous sheets, and floats at a high elevation, sometimes at 10,000 meters. This  and tho cirro-stratus form are composed  entirely of ice crystals. The latter are  lower, down than the former and extend  in a more uniform whiteness. The cir-  roeumulus look like white, shadowless  flakes and arc 7,000 meters in elevation, disposed like files or groups. Thoso  larger and higher up have accentuated  shadows. Thc strato-cumulus is a mass  of bulky rolls, and in winter covers the  entire heavens. This form hangs lower  down than the others. One form of the  stratus cloud is liko a cirrus, but is  distinguished by its grayish-blue tint  and its lower position-in the heavens.  The cumulo-nimbus is enormous in outline, looking like a plateau or mountain  of snow. Its highest crest is 2,500  meters, with a base about half that  figure.    The cumulus cloud proper has  distended  and  flabby  from  such  evils  as  beset  ailing human being.  Thc human victim of obesity is told  to exercise, to take hot baths, to massage and to.diet.    The obese  free can  do nothing; and until very recently its-  malady was not recognized.  .But obesity  is not the  only disease  -���������������������������  that the tree shares with man. Chlorosis  -  and anaemia are common in the vegetable world.   Iron is a great restorer.of  the blood, but in many cases it is difficult, if not impossible, to assimilate it".  In many cases the human stomach,'.like  thc stomach of the tree;  is refractory  to   the   strengthening   element.  - Some  years ago an agriculturist planted rusty,. '  nails aronnd'Hh'e roots of" his" trees, to "'  preserve the trees from .worms,*, and the"  visible  effects  of, the.  treatment  gave- -  him an idea of. the nature of the tree    ���������������������������  and  of  its  similarity  to   thc  phvsical -  organism of mam.

Whon   the   tree  died  and  preparations  wero  made  for  an examination  of its roots it was al-    .  most impossible  to  exhume  it.    When  all the ground around it was loosened  and   the  roots  were  exposed    it   - was  found   that  the  tree,   when   a  sapling. -'  had clasped its young roots around the  base  of an   irou  balustrade  encircling  a tomb.   Thc roots of the tree had" run  in and out between tho iron bars of the  fence.    Exactly  half  of   the   tree .had  come in contact with the iron, and that  half put forth    a   growth    luxuriantly  leaved in rusty brown, Thp_lialfjli.it   "had not touched tJic iron developed a  growth of normal coloring. The tree as  a whole was a fine specimen of healthy  vegetable growth, but the sido impregnated by iron far exceeded tho ..reen  side in its output of vigorous leafage.

ELECTRICALLY-OuRED MEAT  A Cincinnati packer found that bv introducing an alternating current  through the pickling brine hams could  be cured in from 30 to ,'l.j days, as  against 00 to 100 of the ordinai'v'mcth-  od. A large plant in Cleveland, Ohio,  is now curing meat by this process.  Ten o,000-ponnd vats are in service.  The current is furnished bv a 100-lrilo-  watt generating plant.

VENTILATION AS  A PROTECTION  AGAINST FROST  To the long list of the means heretofore proposed of protecting fields, orchards and vineyards -against frost a  new one has recently .been added by  M. F. Chavemae. He points out the  fact that frosts arc not feared when  the wind blows; he is thus led to suggest tho creation, of an artificial wind  by the installation of electric fans  among the plants to be protected. He  considers this plan'applicable chiefly to  vineyards, but also possibly useful in  orchards. - ENDERBY PRESS  AND  WALKER'S  WEKKLY  ii  li  .

AGRICULTURAL     EDUCATION   IN  KOREA  One example of the enlightened policy of the Japancso in dealing with  their new possession, Korea (now officially called Chosen), is seen in the  great progress of agricultural education  in that country. Since 1006 the authorities have established thirteen agricultural schools and fifteen model experimental farms, the oldest and most  important being thc station at Suwon  (Suigcn), which is excellently equipped  and managed, and compares favorably  with sonic of the best institutions of  this character in America. From this  school there are OS graduates who have  taken the full three years' course, while  37 students havo taken special shorter  courses.  MOSES, ELECTRICIAN  That electricity must havo been  known to the ancients has been many  times asserted, but now comes forward  an electrician in Munich.���������������������������Sir. Stadel-  niiiiin���������������������������who' has been in times past an  archaeologist, to assert that he found  in Egypt, 'in buried walls, indications  denoting the use of electric lamps.   He  ���������������������������claims that Moses brought electricity  from Egypt and that there are Biblical paragraphs which will bear him ont  in his statement that lightning-rods  were in use in the templc-at Jerusalem.  Sfadelmann believes that the serpent of  bronze of Moses was nothing more or  " loss than an ordinary lightning-rod such  as is in use today.        r ,  He points out, further, that the Arc  of the Covenant, made, as  it" was,  of  - wood and adorned inside'"and out with  gold, .constituted a veritable Leyden  jar which communicated with a'lightning-rod on the roof; and that it was so  arranged that, under determined conditions, it could be .charged with electric  fluid and produce the death of any ignorant person daring to'enter the sacred precincts"of the are without necessary precautions.      .    .

SMALL PILL, SMALL DOSE, SMALL PRICE  Genuine mm. t*ar Signature  Tho decay of teeth, technically  "dental caries," is one of the mobt  easily and certainly preventnlile of  (liscasas, and there would seem now to  be no'valid excuse for the bringing up  of children with decayed teeth, together  with all the pathological results which  Ihey give rise to. Unfortunately, so  far it is only those who have become  interested in the subject and who aro  themselves possessed of the required  knowledge to conic to correct conclusions on the subject, who know the  simple secrets of prevention, that is to  say., a goodly proportion of thc dental  profession, and here and there a few  medical -men who have paid attention  to thc long and laborious investigations  which have led to the solution of this  important problem. Jt is with lhc idea  of-Jetting what is already known to a  few become more widely known, among  medical men more especially', that 1  venture to publish .this pamphlet. Those  who find the subject of interest or importance would do well to make their  knowledge more secure, by acquainting themselves not only with the outlines of the means of preventing the  disease as presented in this article, but  also with at least a general knowledge  of the pathology-and the etiology of  the disease, because for some considerable time, incredulity, ignorance, prejudice, vested interests and the1 commercial spirit-are likely to continue to  make a stubborn resistance to the  diffusion of the truth. Jt would be a  groat service, to mankind if a goodly  number of medical men would become  thoroughly acquainted with the subject so as to rid the land of ideas which  are now definitely known to be wrong,  and indeed .often actually markedly  instrumental in causing thc disease.  Medical men should certainly make sure  that it is uot their precepts whieh are  largely responsible for tne widespread  prevalence of the.disease. Those who  would like, to; supplement their knowledge may be recommended to consult  the more recent standard text-books,  e.g., J. F. Colyer's "Dental1 Surgerj  and Pathology,'''' or the .larger "Sys-"  lem of Dental Surgery,''' edited by.Mr.  Norman Bennett, about to be published  by the. Oxford "Medical Press. Therein  they will find the ground work of the  subject- sufficiently 'and thoroughly  treated to let them master all important  points. The references at .the end of  this pamphlet will also help anyone with  regard to any special point on which  he may desire to have further' information. ��������������������������� '.-:'. ���������������������������' - * - *- '.  . .From, what has already .been said it  is obvious that" the "cleansing power of  true 'or effectual "mastication' is better  almost beyond comparison ;.thau artificial cleaning. Efficient mastication  not only keeps the teeth clean and free  from injurious plaques of .bacteria, but  the guins aro kept clean," healthy, firm"  and so finely applied to.the necks of  the teeth as almost" to defy the lodgment'" of all appropriate kinds of foods.  The peridental' membrane and alveolar  processes ,are kept strong and healthy,  and no doubt the gingival organ is likewise benefitted." Thc bones" of the jaws  also" are stimulated in "their 'development, and the teeth are'more perfectly  'mpianted and. regular than when mastication has been insufficient, and artificial cleansing has been :iolely relied  upon for their welfare. Moreover,  digestion and the general health are  both directly and indirectly benefitted.  Lt is,' therefore, the obvious duty of  every dental practitioner, to instil into  his patients the value of' efficient mastication, and'tp'get them to understand  that no amount of artificial .cleansing  will make -up for the continual transgression of the dictates of physiology,  and that this is doubly important with  regard to growing children whose habits_  have ~yct���������������������������toMje'" formed. Jfc"_is~hardly  necessary to say that thc attempt to  (each the art of vigorous mastication  is perfectly futile unless the food is  of such a consistency as will stimulate  or require it. From Dr. Black's Phago-  dynamomctric records we observe that  thc vigor of mastication is and must be  proportional to thc consistency of the  food consumed, if the food is masticated  at all. Here, however, wc arc met  with. a__ difficulty,. for_if medical .practitioners advocate soft food for children, as in actual practice they very  generally do, and lhe dentist advocates  its discontinuance, then the diffusion of  lhe required knowledge is greatly impeded. As tlio general medical practitioner comes in. con I.act with children  at a much earlier age than tho dentist  does, groat havoc may be wrought in  children's mouths and teeth before the  advice of a dentist may even be thought  of. Jt is, therefore, obvious that medical men must learn or be taught how  .the mouth may be most effectual ly kept  clean. There are few indeed who  realize that the mouth is, or at least  ought lo be, much cleaner after a meal  wliich really requires mastication than  at any other time. Thc detergent effects  of the foodstuffs havo admittedly been  overlooked. It is not so very long  ,'inec thc idea that 0 meal invariably  left thc inouth dirty was generally believed even by dentists, so that we can  hardly expect the public to be converted at ouec to the idea that thc  meals   themselves  should   be  cleansing  to the mouth and teeth.    Jt is not too  much  to  say that, notwithstanding its  immense importance from the point of  view  of general  health,    the    natural  hygiene ot the mouth has in the past to  alf intents and purposes  been  entirely  overlooked.    Jt  is   true  that  artificial  cleansing  of  the   mouth   has   been   insisted  011,   but  that some  foods leave  the  mouth physiologically clean, wnilo  others leave it dirty, seems never in any  text-book of dietetics to have been so  much ns mentioned.   Foods which lodge  about tho  teeth and do not clean  the  mouth,  havo  been  recommended" without the slightest concern as to whether  they kept the nioulh, ancl indirectly the  alimentary   canal,   free   from   chronic  fermentation,   so   long   as   they   were  known to be easily digestible and to  supply tho requisite amount of protcid,  carbohydrate, etc.   Tn fact,' the viewing  of   food  from   its  nutritional  and   not  its hygienic value is still a matter for  serious regret among those who understand the value of oral and indirectly  alimentary  hygiene.    Thus  iu. reviewing an important medical book recently  published,  the  British  Dental  Journal  said, "We are at the outset pained to  find that wherever a dietary is given  in detail in  this work, as being specially   adapted   for   school   children,' no  thought'apparently has been given to  the fact that human teeth are primarily intended for mastication and that  upon  the  functional   activity   of    the  teeth   depends the proper development  of the jaws; again, we would point out  that a diet .should be so arranged as to  provide a natural toothbrush, and not  be composed of those very ingredients  which   on   fermentation   lead   to   the  production   of   lactic   acid  and   consequent    decalcification    of    the    dental  enamel."    It is oDvibus that the first  thing required for,the difl'usion-of the  requisite knowledge is to have it clearly  taught in text-books for dentists and  medical practitioners.       We' may say  that  as' far  as  dental  text-books ,are  concerned  this has just recently been  done.    With  regard  to  medical   textbooks, unfortunately the importance of  the subject has uot yet    been    fully  realized  by   all   the  writers.      Some,  however,   have   recognized   thc   more  modern teaching of dentists, and fur-.,  ther  have  advocated an  abandonment  of thc current practice of pap feeding  for  children,-not  only" on  account  of  the teeth, but because" of>harmfulless  with  regard  to  the  alimentary-canal  and ibody   generally.   -Notwithstanding  this,,however,' it- would seem desirable  that more attention, should be. paid-to  the hygiene of": tho '.'mouth" by medical  practitioners, and. only good" would result    from . requiring    from _- medical  students" an' elementary,- knowledge  of  the principles of oral hygiene.    Moreover, fuller recognition of dentistry as  a branch ."of medicine" at the universities where, medical degrees are granted  should be  demanded.    All this is, important because the subject    of    oral  hygie'ne is necessarily associated with  questions of- dietetics, and consequently  in this matter, it is to the medical profession that the public look largely for  guidance.. As regards.the dental branch  of the profession,' it has  been and." is  doing excellent work so far as that%is  possible  under  existing, circumstances  The British Dental Association and the  School   Dentists   Society,   have   made  statistical   investigations   which   have  done much to awaken both the medical  profession and the" public to "the great  importance of the subject.    Hern it is  hardly necessary to say that the treatment of school children's teeth should  always be accompanied by instructions  as   to   the   prevention   of   thc   disease.  Otherwise the chronic irritation of increasing taxes, and  tho almost certain  .recurrcnco_of_the_discasc_within_a_few.  milk;    stewed    fruit:    chocolate    aud  sweets of all kinds; honey. '  Liquids:   Cocoa and chocolate.  Thc above foods should not be eaten  except when followed by foods of the  cleansing kind.  Cleansing and Preventive of Dental  Caries.  Fibrous foods generally.  Examples: Fish, moat, bacon, poultry.  Uncooked vegetables, lettuce, cress,  radish, celery. Cooke.I vegetables arc,  as a rule, cleansing, but in a loss degree than uncooked vegetables.  Stale bread with crust; toasted bread  of all kinds; twice baked bread; pulled  bread and theesc. Sa\ories. Frodh  fruits, especially those requiring mastication, e.g., apples. Fatty foods, e.g.,  butter and margerine. Liquids: Tea,  coffee, water, also soups ancl beef tea.  Bickle's Anti-Consumptive Syrup is  agrcebalc-to the taste, and is a certain  relief for irritation of the throat that  causes hacking coughs., Tf iired according to directions it willbrcak the most  persistent cold, and restore the air passages to their normal healthy condition.  There is no need to recommend it to  those familiar with it, but to those who  seek a sure remedy and are in doubt  what to use, the advice is���������������������������try Bickle's  Syrup.  . ��������������������������� '  years will most assuredly give rise to  tho suggestion that such treatment is  not initiated by the highest motives.  This would be a great misfortune, because thc treatment of school children's teeth is itself of importance, 'in  preventing further caries. Jt makes  thc children able to cat food suitable  for the hygiene of thc mouth and alimentary canal, together with all  its concomitant .and consequent  advantages.���������������������������J-Voin ��������������������������� what - wc- -have  just said it may be observed that  fhe best means of educating the public  is through what ma)' be called the recognized channels; that is to say, those  with special knowledge must expound  tho subject in such a way that the leaders of medical thought and writers of  text-books shall become acquainted  with thc truths, and when this is done  there is but littlo fear but that Ihc  truths will gradually become generally  known. The public have always looked  to the medical profession for guidance,  and there is no higher authority to  whom they arc able to appeal, and  therefore no efforts should be relaxed,  either in regard to perfecting-the knowledge of the medical practitioner in  this special branch, of learning, xor in  bringing before his notice the reasons  for considering r,hc hygiene of the  mouth as thc most important part of  preventive medicine.  Thero is appended a. table of foodstuffs classified in their relation to  dental caries.  Not Cleansing and Liable to Induce  Caries:  Farinaceous and sugary food in general without fibrous element.  Examples: Sweet biscuits and cake;  bread and marmalade; bread and jam;  new bread without crust; bread soaked  in  milk;  milk puddings;  porridge  and  PRESERVING HAIL-STONES  The peculiar formation of hail-stones  and tho probable conditions of their  production havo long been matters of  much interest to scientists. A thorough study of them, it is believed, might  throw much light on various meteorological phenomena, especially in regard  to .air-currents, changes of temperature  and of pressure, etc., in the upper strata  of the atmosphere. A comparison, of  them with"'the "ice flowers" and,snow  crystals or stars which Tyndall ' and  other prominent scientists have found  so fruitful" a field of investigation  might yiefd important -results. . Heretofore, however, the comparative rarity  of their occurrence and the great rapidity with which they melt, has offered  obstacles 'to this. But Professor Boris  Weinberg, of Tomsk, Siberia, has just  perfected an apparatus, as we learn  from Lds Annales, which is .expected to  obviate these difficulties. He will  gather the hail-stones as opportunity offers and preserve them by plunging  them in a liqhid of about the same density contained in a double-walled receptacle like a superior ice cream freezer, but "packed" with a mixture of  ice and sulphate of copper..- As needed  for study the stones can be removed,  sliced in extremely thin sections and  photographed by' a polarizing miscros-  cope or autochromatic plates, as is done  with anatomical preparations. ���������������������������  THE STRANGE SEA-SPIDER  One of the strangest creatures of the  sea is a certain species of sea-spider  named nymphon gracilc. ". ". -  . It has a body about the size of a bit  of thread, a quarter of an inch long, and  tied into-four knots. - The head'-lobks  like tho end of a'thread split into; two  horns;, from each.,of, the four-knots  start two legs, one-on" each, side, .making eight in-alb-' 7 - ','-.

'. Another curious feature of this" form  of lif<5 is that the baby sea-spider is not  in the-least-like the-grown-up of the  same family,   lt is much more like a  , A Real Asthma Relief."   " Dr. J. D,  Kellogg's -Asthma Remedy has never  been advertised by cxtravagant'.state-  ments. Its claims are .conservative indeed, when judged by the.cures which  it perforins. Expect real relief'and permanent benefit when. you. _ buy this  remedy and you -will .not have cause  for disappointment.

Ey Breathing   the   Healing   Vapor of  Catarrhozone You Get Relief  in Ten Minutes  Every second person that you meet  seems to have a sneeze and stuffed  feeling in the forehead and uostrils. To  cuio promptly, say, in half an hour,  tliere is nothing worth using except  Catarrhozone. Vou inhale its balsamic  vapor, and feel as if you were among  ihe Norway pines. This is because  Catarrhozone contains a healing medicine, light as pine air, which is breathed straight into the Jungs and bronchial  tubes. Away goes the cold; sneezing  and catarrhal cough cease, bronchial  irritation stops; iu short, you are cured  of catarrh by a pleasant, simple remedy,  free from sedatives and irritants.   -  That Catarrhozone is a swift, certain  means of destroying colds and catarrh  is proved by tho following statement  of Mr. Pulos, one of Brockville"s best  known merchants:  "In tlie fall of 1903," writes Mr. "Pulos, under dato of June 10th, 1910, "I  contracted  a  very  severe  cold' which    -  developed into. Catarrh.   At that-time 7  I was living in New York State and'  treated with four different physicians,  7  who afforded me no relief. On coming-, -'  to Brockville I was advised.by a friend", ".  to try Catarrhozone.

ALTER ROBINSON  ELECTION  IN  .MARCH  The dispatch   published below may  not give the   exact   dates of thc dissolution of   thc   govcrncmnt. and the  forthcoming elections   but it will be  found to he   near   enough correct to  lie  accepted  as   authoritative.      The  elections are sure to be on within thc  next few weeks.      It is well that no  delay i.s permitted   in bringing them  ] on.     Nothing could be gained thcro-  j by, either by the government or the  .opposition, and   it is the best thing  I to have it over with as soon as pos-  isible.     It is   a   foregone conclusion  1 what the outcome will be.     Premier  'McBride's   administration   has    been  i on broad    party   lines.     He and his  ministers    have   left    no   stone   un-  !turned to give the province the best  possible   service,    and    no   task has  been too   arduous   for them in their  efforts.     In    face   of the work done,  and in view of the work promised in  the future, there can be,no sane reason   given   why   there   should    be a  change asked.     And if no reason can  be found for   a change, it were folly  to anticipate one.     The dispatch referred to is as follows:  Victoria, B. C, Feb. 26.���������������������������Prorogation of the Legislature will take  place on Tuesday, and dissolution of  the House will follow immediately.  The elections will take place just as  soon as .official notices can be posted  in the various ridings. Eight days'  notice is required by law after dissolution before nominations can take  place and eight days must follow the  nominations before the elections can  take place. Variations may be permitted in the case of inaccessible  ridings, such as Atlin, Cassiar' and  others in the far north. This means  that within sixteen days from next  Wednesday, which means March 15th,  the province may confidently look for  a general election. There will be no  redistribution bill and elections will  be conducted on the old voters' lists.  This statement, may be considered as  absolutely authoritative.  COSTLY    VACCINATION  In a dispatch from Montreal a few  ���������������������������' weeks ago, it was briefly stated that  ' tlie mother of a child which had lost  ���������������������������an arm  through   being forcibly vaccinated at the city's orders, had cn-  . tered    suit   against    the city  to  re-  ; cover  damages.        A    later dispatch  :states that the   jury trying the case  j brought in a verdict condemning the  ; city t;o pay the    sum of $G,000 dam-  ! ages.       The   jury apportioned $2,000  to the child's mother to cover medical expenses,   etc., and $4,000 to the  child    as    indemnity    for  disability.  The case of this child shows that  any person is justified in resisting  the operation of vaccination, "unless a guarantee accompanies thc  serum to be used that the latter is  absolutely safe."  The last remark in quotations is  taken from the paper commenting on  the decision of the jury. Vaccine  scrum is nothing more or less than  the puss taken from the sores beneath the scabs on a sick calf, made  sick by being inoculated with puss  from another sick calf or cow. If  anyone can guarantee poison puss to  be "absolutely safe';" then why not  any poison puss?

Assuming   that   31    births  \ took place during thc month, or one  for each 24 hours, wc arc up against  the solemn  thought that thc population  of the city is growing,  without  immigration, at thc rate of some 365  per year.

DEVELOPMENT OF PHOTOGRAPHIC .'.IMAGES Ai'TER FIXING  Keal.auss has .shown that latent photographic images upon silver bromide  plates can be developed after li.ving in  hypo. Iliis method, however, can only  be employed whon the plates have been  exposed twenty times the normal  amount. It is now reported in Coinptes  Rendus by Lumic.-c ami Scycwctz that  by using "a fixing bath consisting of a  2 per cent, solution of hypo it is possible to fix before developing, with an  exposure only four times the normal  in the case of show plates and six times  the normal for rapid plates. The double  sulphite of silver and sodium is found  to yield the best results as developer.  DYNAMITE FOR FARMING  Experiments were recently made in  N w Jersey to demonstrate tho cflicaey  of a low-freezing explosive in aerating  the sub-soil and digging a hole i'or tree-  planting. The discharge breaks up the  adjacent ground and renders tenacious  sub-soil porous and sponge-like, thereby  favoring a conservation of the moisture. It is claimed that a deeper root  penetration becomes possible, and that  the crops are not so sensitive to spells  of diy, hot weather.  A CHRISTMAS PETITION  'Tis  Christmas  time!

But  they all come to grief sooner or later,  aud when they are all through most  every one who has tried it is a heavy  loser.  This is called ringing. With thc recent expose of the ringing of the trotter, Jack London, 2.1?'/,., who was sold  to Tommy Murphy as Professor Sphinx,  2.11 V., horsemen arc keenly interested  and pleased that the perpetrators of  this deal have been caught. Itralso  brings to memory several other cases of  ringing that were interesting even  tho-Jgh injurious to the sport.  One of the famous cases of ringing  was told by a well known horseman recently. The name of thc ringer was  Small Hopes, a medium sized brown  gelding that was a handsome and very  attractive trotter. He had white hind  heels which were dyed. For three years,  from 1S73 to lS7o inclusive, this trotter  raced the west. He wound up his ca.rcei  at Mason, Mich., July .L, 187o, and disappeared as'completely as. if he had  been swallowed up by the earth. Small  Hopes was raced by William McGuigan,  commonly known as Umbrella Bill -lie-,  cause hc always carried a rain stick.  McGuigan was a quaint character and  smart, but had some trouble with the  National Trotting Association and decided to get even by ringing.  Smalt Hopes"was the trotter that Me-  Guigan picked out as his ringing tool,  and before being discovered he had  raced under thc name of Lothair, Lapland and West brook and had raced  from Omaha to Washington, D.C.. starting in moro than fifteen races and winning whenever McGuigan wanted him  to. Small Hopes was by Ttysdyk's  Hambletonian (10) sire of Dexter,  2.17'/|, but ho was developed in Michigan. '   -  One of the most celebrated eases of  ringing occurred in Cleveland. Jt was  the case of Fred Wilton, who, raced by  a man on the" West Side-, now dead,  started under seven different names  and campaigned all the way from Maine  to parts west of the Mississippi. The  man who had this horse was considered  hero as far bettor than thc average  trainer and driver, and'the only reason  that was ever given for his starting  on this ringing campaign was that he  tried to do something* smart. While ho  Ifot^aTvay^-W-i th���������������������������i t==oii==30ni''3=oei'ttsiou������������������|=  when he was caught it always cost him  more than hc had mado on his successful races.  Another case that created a sensation among Clevelanders several years  ago was that of the Mack mare M'innib  Moulton, who performed under the  name of Baby .Mine. Minnie was owned in Massachusetts but was brought  west and raced at Cleveland where W.  P., Fasjg recognised her and put an mid  to her fictitious career.

To-day's message comes from Mrs. Hois  McKay, a well-known resident of this  place.

Those who remember A.mber, the well  bred bay stallion that, was bred iu Canada, recall what a notorious ringer he  Avas. Amber, the sire of Teasel's grand-  dam, was brought to Ohio and started  at Lebanon under the namo of Broker.  lie raced through the summer .'.and ���������������������������fall  under this alias and returned to Canada  and the noxt season on the grand circuit under the name of Amber. As  Amber ho got a record of 2.2o'/i, as  Broker his mark was 2.H2. Amber's  specialty was two-in iio dashes, which  ho won at Buffalo, Bochestor and Hartford.  Another   noted    case   was    that   of  Clover,  wliich   was raced  by Salspugh  I'or several years.     In   1S7-1-75 and 7(i,  Salspugh  raced  Clovei* np in  Northern j  Massachusetts    and    New    Hampshire.!  In 1S77 ho changed her name to Dalon, j  and then shipped  her out  west, where,  he raced her at Fiecport, Men do la and:  elsewhere  under  1ho   name  of  Bright-j  wood.    J-lo won  eight races before being   discovered.     Then   the   horse   was'  shipped back east and raced until JSSo  under the name of Clover.  There  are  three  important  cases  of  ringing of .'.merican  horses  in  Europe  that aro interesting.   The most notable  was that of the Missouri mare, Bethel,  2.Hi1/,, which Bob Knoebs took to Germany.    He lac-od her successfully over!  there, but when it came to divide thei  winnings  his partner,    becoming    dis-!  satisfied over the loot, gave the story!  away.    Thc   German- government  con- \  fiscated the  mare,    and    Knoebs    was  thrown into jail, where he served seventeen months.    Shortly after his release  Knoebs returned to America, and upon  his   deathbed   he   disclosed    the    most  startling case of all, when he admitted  that  he  was  a  ringer    himself,    that  Knoebs was not his name.  Those who remember Folly will recall that she was raced in England,  France and Austria, getting a record of  2.12'/|. Folly, like'nearly'every other  ringer, could havo won just as well in  her class as in thc slower events she  started.  As far as is known, thc only American horse that was rung in 'Russia was  the Michigan bred horse, fiod"Arthur,  who Avon several big stakes on the ice.  Perhaps had it not been for a disagreement between thc men interested  in thc ringing his identity would never  have been discovered.

' This was the only event  that had ever seemed really to happen  in It Troop. Orders for active service  might come and throw the whole rcgi-  iient into confusion of packing, scurry-  ;ng, and excitement. They never  broko the placid, smiling calm of Sorner. lie would amble in his big, heavy  in his corporals and smilo at them���������������������������  and then, thc business of taking tbe  field would progress* with utter precision, but without the straining of a  voice or the missing of amieal.  Captain Federmuss's promotion was  different. Sergeant Sorner met hini .at  the ollico and for once the placid smile  was absent, and in its place came only  a nervous working of unaccustomed  ' face muscles.  "jjer Gabtain iss Machor now���������������������������und  1/ am   glatt���������������������������"       Thc   "but"   that  should   have   tailed   this    phrase    was  only suggested by its inflection.

And this was the souse of the question ia the mind of each of the officers  of  the  Sixteenth���������������������������serving  now,   after  years of slumberous State duty, at Zam-  boles, in  the Philippines.      They read  .of Fred Wilton's promotion and assignment to L firoop and they were pleased,  but���������������������������but���������������������������    They called L the "Comfort Troop"; it had como to be an institution in the Sixteenth, aud Wiltou  was���������������������������Wilton.  .    "Siiap"  Wilton" they called him in  -his cadet days, and everyone liked  to  remember him as a nervous, wiry little  figure, kicking impatient toes into the  turf of the Grass Plain behind the 'Varsity,   striking  his   left  palm -with   his  tight right fist and biting off the words  of his quick distinguishing phrase,"  "Snap and go, West Point; snap and  -go, West Point!"

In.lciigth.~of time, he would have  carried out his threat, but there came  events that'precipitated things; - -  ��������������������������� Five .thousand Moro tribesmen -had  been making themselves' secure in the  heart of Zamboles for a year. 7 When  they considered - the hour." propitious,  they descended ���������������������������'on the'coast, murdered  half a hundred Filipinos and'Americans",  retreated to their stronghold, raised 'the,  green;;banner of rebellion,-and declared  a holy war. -W   -      .- ".    .-."  The Sixteenth was ordered out.       -y  "Wilton had no fault to find with the  troop's  preparation.     Without -excitement, it was on the parade ground half  an hour before its swiftest rival.  For a long time uothihg'had protected  poor Sorner from the conscience of Wilton but'thc captain's sweetness of heart  and kindness of-.temper.

A pack train coming up from  the Post was stopped by a ' swollen  ^-trua mf^Thl.-ifiwifnf'^  failure of supply.   They went hungry.  Through all this Wilton fumed and  Sorner smiled.  The colonel rode along the outpost  lino and stopped to criticize L Troop.  The colonel had been without food for  twelve hours and without tobacco for  twenty-four.  "Seo here, Captain Wilton," he said  (expurgating freely as wo go), "if  you���������������������������can't.'_ wake-th it>-troop of-burgheis  up, I'll wake you up."

"And," Wilton said afterward in explaining himself, "I could have endured  it if he'd flared up. lie didn't���������������������������he  didn't. He just looked at mc as an  anxious grandmother might look at a  favored child���������������������������pityingly, apprehensively���������������������������and smiled."  Wilton   turned   away   seething,     ne  strode to tho orderly desk.    He wrote  out au order���������������������������but he did not sign it:  "In the Field, October 9th.  "Troop Order 10.  "First Sergeant Sorner is hereby relieved."  k   "Captain Sixteenth Cavalry,  "Commanding Troop L."  Not sign  it?"  he said afterward,  don't  know  why I did  not.    The  favor of the Almighty, I think."  L Troop's outpost line lay on the  south side of the mountain. From it, inclining drearily toward the top was the  ash heap of the dead volcano, great  black boulders of liquid earth frozen  into fantastic shapes, littered debris ot  its old activity, sloping upward to the  jagged crater rim, behind which lay tho  tribesmen. Behind it a sparse growth  of scrub thickened to the jungle half-a-  mile below. In the centre of this line  lay Outpost Number Three, strengthened by an automatic gun.  The. automatic is an unknown quantity. Jt is a tripod-mounted single barrel through the breach of which runs a  looped ribbon strung with cartridges.  The gas of each discharge, through a  chain of delicate mechanism, fires the  gun again so quickly that the compounded sound is that of a cane being dragged  rapidly along a picket "fence. Theoretically it should shoot a stream of bullets  that may bo played across its front, exactly as the water from a hose nozzle  is* played across a lawn. Actually, tho  mechanism sometimes jams."  At Outpost Number Throo Wilton had  ordered the guard reduced.  "The gun is a company in itself," ho  said. "No need for more than fiv men  there."  From his task at thc field desk Wiltou walked straight to the outpost.  There, hidden among the rocks, he  found two sets of fours���������������������������eight men and  two corporals.  "Who ordered these extra men up  here?" he asked, his face white, his  voice vibrant. '        '     '  "The sergeant," answered one of the  corporals. "He said the gun might  jam." '  - Wilton -spoke haltingly.  "Take those four men back to the  reserve, corporal���������������������������report . to the first  sergeant���������������������������tell him I say he's fired���������������������������  busted���������������������������reduced���������������������������^. Oh, go���������������������������get out!-"  Jle watched the little squad of men toil  down over the rocks, into the scrub and  out of sight.    -  So.rner received'his message in calm  placidity; then his eyebrows pucicered  ���������������������������his face grew grave.       ' -,,  "He means it," he whispered, "he  me'ans it ach Gretchen, I have tried  so hard!" His broad shoulders slumped  forward.  "He didn't seem mad," the corporal  ventured, "white and trembly, but not  all fire an' ginger lii.e usual. You might  go up an' sec hini, Sergeant."  Sorner turned his face toward the  hill.       - .      ������������������������������������������������������  At Outpost Number Three, Wilton un-  limbercd" his binoculars. lie wasn't  really interested in the top of the hill,  but he needed to be busy in mind. He  was not happy. . ,  He focused the lenses. Something  across'their' field-waved���������������������������a chromatic  ribbon swept from their funnels; he began wildly sweeping the front and a  soldier at nis side shouted':'.  "My God,- Captain, here they come! "  Field glasses were not necessary. Wilton dropped them.

"Well,  Corporal, what's the  matter  with you?"  he snarled, and then the  automatic barked.  "B-r-r-r-r-ip!" y  White flecks flew from the _rocks  above where the steel bullets splintered  them at thc feet of the Moros, They  did not stop. . "Wilton saw a' black  man with a Datu's head-kerchief reel  from a rock and topple back, his isilk  scarf streaming after him.  "Br-r-r-r-r-r-r-ip!"  There was firing from above now and  "I  'dWlff-the gunners fell across the tripod.  Something like the fan of a bird's wing  brushed Wilton's cheek. He could  clearly distinguish arms and legs now as  they moved on the hill above. There was  uot even a hesitation of thc onward  rush. He was nervous���������������������������seething with a  helpless desiro, to make the gun shoot  faster���������������������������truer���������������������������harder. And yet ho did  not fear thc ultimate result. At a hundred yards tho sweep of the gun alone  -would- keup-a -fan-shaped -sector- clear  of humanity, The result? Oh���������������������������no. They  wore three hundred yards away but���������������������������  coming.  Somcono    stooping    over    the    gun  shrieked.    Tlio man minding the feed  spun about and fell.    Wilton rushed to  his place and grasped lho rihbon.  "13-r-r-r-r-ip!"  "We've got 'em, Corporal," ho said  evenly, but between his teeth.  "llell!" answered the corporal without relevance.  "Br-r-r-r-..r..r..!"  The ripping ceased abruptly. The corporal screamed and swore.  "A jam���������������������������all, my God!���������������������������a jam."  Something���������������������������fear���������������������������struck cold at the  base of AViltou's brain.    Then another  something���������������������������hot and sharp���������������������������seared him  squarely through the chest.  He was shot. He had often wondered  how it felt. It felt calming. He crumpled comfortably into a littlo heap  across the wooden trail of the gun. No-'  thing seemed to matter. lie looked'up  at the corporal. The man was frantically tugging at the firing lever���������������������������at the  recoil plug���������������������������at the feed hopper, his face  in panic, Lis eyes wild with fear.  Wilton remembered numbly with  what patient adjusting of mechanism  a'jam must be treated���������������������������what loosening  of screws, what delicate handling of  levers, wnat stolid unflurricdness will  coax into action a recalcitrant automatic. Ho looked at the utterly unrestrained efforts of the corporal and he  could almost smile. Then came a sharp  wave of consciousness. He heard the  "Allahs" again���������������������������near and distinct.  "Give it up���������������������������Corporal," he meant to  say, but his mouth filled,and he could  onlv utter:  "Go��������������������������� "  Then drowsiness again and a voice  somewhere back toward the jungle,  speaking calmly:  " Vere iss my Gabtain?" And then���������������������������  powerfully:  "Loafers���������������������������pummers���������������������������" It was Sorner's wildest objurgation.  It seemed an infinity of time that Wilton Jay across tho trail looking up into  tho placid face of Sergeant Sorner, intent upon the breech of the jammed machine gun. Wilton's view of the hillside was partly cut oh" by a little stone  that it was loo much trouble to try to  look around, but presently he could see.  The Moros' had crowded in together  as thoy came closer. They were barely  a hundred yards away. Ho could sec  their faces crazed by drugs and fanaticism, lie could see the ferules of the  krisses and tho kampilans. He saw his  danger, too, and it called back consciousness. Then he know that Sorner  was still there. He saw the mild blue  eyes glance up at the leeway left and  back at the work of the patient fingers.  They were working coolly���������������������������they were  making not one false move. He saw  them play along the firing lever and  suddenly lie knew something of the icily  perfect nerve that controlled them.  The danger was so close, so terrifying,-  and time "and patience were the only  elements, of safety. There were not  forty saving seconds left. Then Wilton heard the clink-clink as the troublesome shell, fell out and the soft click  of a cog slipping into place. Sorner  moved to the firing seat and looked  down into Wilton's face���������������������������but he did not  smile. , ,  '  That fact sank deep into Wilton's  conscience. TFor after .that thc Captain's conceptions began to jump aud  quiver like moving pictures from an insecure pedestal���������������������������but first, abovo him  ripped out a long peal of shots.  Br-r-r-r-r-ip!  ��������������������������� "We watched it through the glasses,"  Ford told him later. "Jt was the ghastliest experience of my life, for we were  helpless.. They were' so close when that  blessed r-rip began that the leaders'reeled under .the very muzzle. - We saw  .that before Hie sound reached."  Sorner waited-until the shattered attack surged hack. * Then he reached  down and'picked his little captain (up  in his arms as though he were carrying  a child���������������������������so lightly that he could run  from rock to rock to safety.   '  Wilton was shot through the iungs.

M~:g  METHODS OF TKE ANCIENTS FOR  FINDING SPRINGS'  The manner of finding springs of  drinking water described by the old  Roman author and military .engineer,  Vitruvius Pollio, -who -worked anil wroto  in the rcign3 of Julius Caesar and Aug  ustus, is of seasonable interest in view  of tho numerous discussions of the div-  -ine=rod-"qucstioresTvbirh=havij=been pub^  lished in. the last few years. Jn the  first chapter of the cighfh book of his  work "Do Architcctura," dedicated to  Augustus, hc says that when no springs  are visible, the hidden strata aro to be  found by the investigator lying face  downward on 'the ground before sundown, resting thc chin on the ground,  so that the eyes aro kept directed  along tho plane of the earth's surface.  Ldoking in n_lI directions.along tho <mr__  face." s"ome"~spb"i"may""bo"~JVund whore  a light vapor arises from the earth;  this point is selected for sinking the  well, for whero there is no such vapor  there can be no subterranean spring.  After speaking further concerning  tho quality of the wator, and warning  his readers not lo bo too sure of the  presence of springs in low-lying damp  places, as thoso may be caused by a  trough-like formation, which holds the  surface wator a long time, he says that  if the first method recommended fails  to find water, there should bo dug >{  hole about five feel long, wido and  deep, in which a metal vessel is to be  sot; the hole is then covered with reeds  and earth. If on uncovering the hole  the next day the metal vessel is so  moist that the water drops therefrom,  there is water below.  Another test consists of placing an  unburncd pieco of pottery in the hole,  covering thc same as before; if on uncovering thc hole, the potsherd is damp  or porheps oven fallen apart from the  moisture, water is prosent.  Further on he says: Jf in such a  place a fire bo mado and tho earth  which is thereby heated gives off vapor,  thero is water below.

An upset farmer's wagon in a roadside ditch, with tlie highway covered  wilh scrambled eggs, and a chauffeur  handing out Ih.'oc ton-dollar bills tn an  angry agriculturist clod in a linen duster, is an invariable sign that thero has  been a collision between a motor oar  and a rural vchiclo at that particular  point somewhere within the past ten  days.

W0NTGETDULL  FOR  YEARS  CHURCH   UNION  Church union, which appeared  scarcely more than a possibility  five years ago, is now a very near  probability, with respect to the  Presbyterian, Methodist and Congregational churches. In 1910  the General Conference of the  Methodist Church passed the proposed "Basis of Union" by a  large majority. Of the-twelve  annual conferences to which the  matter was referred nearly all  approved of it ; and now is being  referred to the official boards,  and church members for ratification, before the General Conference will take the important step  which rests with it alone.  The line of action of the Presbyterian Church is almost identical with that of the Methodist  Church. The General Assembly  which has the sole power to act  in the matter approved of it  unanimously, and referred it to  the local Presbyteries. A large  majority of these , voted in favor  of the document, ' and it is now  being referred to the sessions,  and members ,f or their decision.  Neither General Conference nor  Assembly will act without an  overwhelming .majority of the  members -in concurrence with  them.  With respect to the Congregational Church the final decision  rests with the church members,  not their representative body  known as the Congregational  .Union. The union unanimously  approved of the documents of the  proposed basis of union, and one  year ago 86 per cent, of the  church members voted for it, so  that that denomination has done  its part, and can only await the  issue.
