'PRESS  A N D  \V A LK K R 'S AVKK K LY  Bp WILLIAM CARLETON  Copyright, 1911'  [By Small, Maynard & Co., Inc.  CHAPTER IX.���������������������������(Continued)  Plans for the   Future  AT any rate this was my theory and  it gave a fresh -inspiration to my  7: work. Whether anything came of  it or not it was something lo hope for,  something to toil for. something which  raised this digging fo tlie plane of thc  pioneer who joyfully clears his fields  of stumps and rocks. It swung me  from the present into tlie future. It  was a different future from that which  had weighed mc clown when with the  United Woollen. This was no waiting  game. Neither your pioneer nor your  true emigrant sits down and waits.  Here was something which depended  solely upon my own efforts for its sue ���������������������������  cess or failure. And I knew that it  wasn't possible to fail so dismally hut  what the joy of thc struggle would  always be mine.  In the meanwhile I carried with me  to   my   work   a  notebook  and   during  the noon  hour I set down everything  which I thought might be of any pos-  " sible use to me.     I missed no opportunity of learning even the most  trivial details.      A great deal of the information was superficial and a grnat  deal  of it was  incorrect,  but down  it  went  in   the   notebook   to   be  rs/ised  later when I became better informed.  [   watched   my   fellow  -workmen   as  much as possible and plied them with  question.      I  wanted  to  know  where  the  cement  came  from   and  in  what  proportion it was mixed with sand and  gravel  ancl   stone   for  different  work.  I -wanted to know where the sand and  gravel and .stone came from and how  it was graded.     Wherever it was possible  I  secured  rough  prices  for  different materials.      I wanted to know  whore  tho lumber was bought  and  I  wanted to know how thc staging was  built and  why it was built.      Understand   that  I   did   not   flatter   myscif  that I was fast becoming a mason, a  carpenter, an engineer and a contractor all in one and all at once.     I knew  Lhat the most of my information was  vague and loose.     Halt* the men who  were doing thc worlc didn't know why  they were doing it and a lot of them  didn't know  how  they were doing it.  They worked  by  instinct  and    habit.  Then! too, Uiey were a clannish lot and  a jealous lot.     They resented my questioning, however delicately I might do  .it,   and  often ' refused   to  answer  me.  But in spite of this I found myself surprised later-with tho - fund   of really  valuable knowledge I acquired.  In addition to this I acquired sources  of'information.     J found out where to  go .for the roil facts!     I learned, for  instance,  who  for  this particular job  was  supplying for the contractor his  -cement and-gravel and crushed stone-  though, as it happened, this contractor  himself cither owned or controlled his  own plant for the production of most  of his material.      However, I  learned  something when I learned that.     For a  man who had apparently been in business all hi.s life, I was densely ignorant  of even the fundamentals of business.  This idea of running thc business back  to the sources of the raw material was  a new idea to me.     I had not thought  of the contractor as owning his own  quarries arid gravel pits, obvious as-the  advantage  was.      I  wanted   to  know  where the tools were bought and how  much they cost���������������������������from thc engines and  hoisting cranes and    carrying   system  down    to    pick-axes,    crowbars    arid  shovels.      r  made  a note of thc fact  that many ot the smaller implements  were not cared for properly and even  tried to estimate how with proper at-  ^nt40 j^l-lic-' * ra-r.f-n-)>it;k^axo-CQUld._ be  prolonged.      1    joyed    particularly    in  every  such     opportunity    us  this,  matter  how   trivial   it  appeared  no  later.  which  It was just such details as those  _-.i-.vc reality to my dream.  I figured out how many cubic feet  of earth per day per man was being  handled here and bow this varied under different bosses.

It" was  how quickly in this way  flew. A day now didn't  Ihan four hours long. Many  've felt actually sorry when  to quit work was given al  have, hung around for half  an hour while- the engineer fixed his  boiler for lhe night and the old man  lighted hi.s lanterns to siring along  the excavation. 1 don't know whal  they all thought of me, but I know  some of I hem set me clown for a college man doing the work for experience, This, to say the least, was Haltering to my years.  As 1 say. a lot of this work wa������������������  wasted energy in the sense, that I acquired anything worth while, but none  of it was wasted when I recall the  Joy of it. If 1 had actually been a  college boy in the first Hush of youthful enthusiasm I Could not have gone  at my work more enthusiastically or  dreamed wilder or bigger dreams.  Even after nia'ny of these bubbles wero  pricked and had vanished, the mood  which made them did not vanish, 1  have never forgotten and never can  forget the sheer delight of those  months. I was eighteen again with  a lot besides that I didn't have at  eighteen,  My work along another line was  more practical and more successful.  What T learned about the men and the  best way to handle them was genuine  capital. Tn the first place  opportunity to make  as possible with Dan Rafferty. This  was not altogether from a purely sel  fish motive either.      I liked the man.  In a way I think ho was the most lovable  man   1   ever   met,   although   that  seems a lady-like term to apply to so  rugged a fellow.      But below  his beef  and  brawn,  below  his aggressiveness,  below   his  coarseness,   below     even  a  peculiar moral bluntness about a good  many   things,   there   was   ���������������������������_.   strain   of  something fine about Dan Rafferty.    1  had a glimps   of it when he preferred  going   back   to   thc   sewer   gas   rather  than  li.t a man  like the old  foreman  force,   him   into  a   position   where   the  latter could  fire him.      But that was  only one side of him.   -He had a heart  as big as a woman's and one as keen  to respond to sympathy.      This in its  turn  inspired  in  others  a  feeling  towards him that to save my life I can  only describe as love���������������������������love in its big  sense.      He'd   swear  like  a pirate  at  the Dagoes and they'd only grin 'back  at him where'd they'd feel, like knifing  any other man.     And when Dan learned   that   Anton   had   lost  his   boy   he  sent down  to the  house a wreath  of  flowers   half  as  big as  a  cart wheel.  There was scarcely a day when some  old lady didn't manage to see Dan at  the-noon   hour   and   draw   him   aside  with a mumbled plea that always made  him dig into his pockets.     Hti caught  me watching him one day, and said in  explanation, "She's me grandmother."  After I'd seen at least a dozen different ones  approach  him  I  asked  if  they were all his grandmothers.  "Sure," he said.     "Ivory ould woman  in the ward is me grandmither."  Those same grandmothers stood him  in good stead later in his life, for every  single grandmother had some,vforty  grandchildren and' half of these had  votes. But Dan wasn't looking that  far ahead then. Two facts rather distinguished him at the start;, he didn't  either drink or smoke. He didn't  have any opinions upon the subject,  but ho was one of fhe rare Irishmen  born that way. Now and then you'll  find one and as likely as not he'll  prove one of the good fellows you'd  expect to see in-the other crowd. However, beyond exciting my interest and  leading me lo score him some fifty  points in my estimate of him as a  good workman, I was indifferent to  this side of his character. The thing  lhat impressed me most was a quality  of leadership he seemed to possess.  There was nothing* masterful about it.  You didn't look to see him lead in any  especially good or .great'cause, but you  could see" readily enougli that whatever cause he chose, it would be possible for him .to gather about him, a  large personal following. 1 was attracted to this side of him in considering- him as having .about all the  good raw material for a great boss.  Put twenty men on a rope with Dan  at lhe head of them and just let' him  say, "Now. biys���������������������������altogither," and you'd  sec every man's neck grow taut with  the strain. J know because I've been  one of the twenty and felt as though  [ wanted to drag every muscle out of  my body. And when it was over I'd  ask myself why in the devil I pulled  that way. When I told myself that it  was because I was pulling with Dan  Rafferty I said all I knew about it.  It seemed to me that any man who  secured Dan as a boss would already  have the backbone of his gang. I  didn't ever expect to use him in this  way, but 1 wanted the man for a friend  and I wanted to learn thc secret of his  power if I could. But 1 may as well  confess right now that 1 never fully  fathomed that.  In fhe meanwhile I had not neglected  the other men. At every opportunity  rtalked"\'^nr=triMR==^trt-he-bcginning-  I made it a point to learn their names  and addresses, which 1 jotted down in  rny book. I learned something from  them of fhe padrone system and the  unfair contracts into which they wore  trapped.      1   learned   their   likes   and  , anxiously in ftar lest the new life  [might wear her down, but honestly as  tar as the house, was concerned she  didn't seem to have as much to bother  her as she had before. She was slowly getting the buying and the cooking  down to a science. Many a week now  our food bill went as low as a little  over three dollars. We bought in  larger quantities and this always effected a saving. We bought a barrel  of Hour and half a barrel of sugar for  one thing. Then as the new _ otatoes  came into the market, we bought half  a barrel of these ancl half a barrel of  apples. She did wonders with thoso  apples, and they added a big variety  to our menus. Another saving was  effected by buying suet, which cost but  a few cents a pound, trying this out  and mixing it wilh the lard for shortening. ,, As the weather became cooler  we had baked beans twice a week instead of once. These made for us four  and sometimes five .or six meals. We  figured out that we could bake a quart  pot of beans,- using half a pound of  pork to a pot, for less than twenty  cents. This gave the three of us two  meals with some left over for lunch,  making the cost per man about three  cents. And they made a hearty meal,  too. That was a trick she learned in  the country, where baked beans are a  staple article of diet. 1 .liked them  cold for my lunch.  As for clothes, neither Ruth nor myself needed much more than we had.  I bought nothing but one pair of heavy  boots which Ruth picked up at a bankrupt sale for two dollars. On herself  she didn't spend a cent. She brought  down here with her a winter and a  summer street suit, several house  dresses and three or four petticoats  and a goodly supply of under things.  Sho knew how to care for them and  they lasted her. I brought down, in  addition to niy business suit, a Sunday  suit of blue serge and a dress suit and  a Prince Albert. I sold the last two  to a second hand dealer for eleven  dollars and this helped towards the  boy's outfit in thc fall. She bought  for him a pair of three dollar shoes  for a dollar and a half at this same  "Sold- Out" sale, a dollars worth of  stockings and about a dollar's worth  of underclothes. He had a winter  overcoat and hat, though I could have  picked up theso in either a pawnshop  or second-hand store for a.couple of  dollars. If was wonderful what you  could got at these places,, especially if  anyone had-thc'knackf which" Ruth had  of making over things.  the purpose of penetrating Van Eyck's  secret after he had discovered that, a  painting by Van Eyck which he possessed was impervious to water. Again,  Louis Dalman, a painter of Valenlia,  who studied under Van Eyck and as.-  similated his technie painted in distemper.  I  lost  no  myself  a.s  solid  dislikes, their ambitions, and as much  as possible about their families. It  all came hard at first, but little by  little as 1 worked with thom I found  tiu'iii-trusliiiji-iiHi more with their_cpn_  tiilences.  Tn this way. then, the lirsl summer  passed. Both Ruth and the boy in  ihc meanwhile were just as busy about  their rospi-ctive tasks as [ was. The  latter took to Ihc gymnasium work like  :i duck to water and in his enthusiasm  for this tackled his lessons with re-  ri.'Wed interest. He put on five pounds  cf weight, and what with the daily  ocean swim which wo both enjoyed, his  cheeks took on color and he became  as brown as an Indian. If he had  passed the summer at thc White  Mountains he could not have looked  any hardier. Hc made many friends  at the Y.M.C.A. They w-re all ambitious boys and they woke him up  wonderfully. I was careful, to follow  liim closely in this now life and made  it a point to so > tho boys myself and  to make him tell me at tbe end of  r.'ich day just what he had been about.  Dick was ii boy I could trust lo tell  me very detail. He was absolutely  truthful and he wasn't afraid to open  hi heart to me wilh whatever new  questions might be bothering him. As  far as possible I fried to point out to  him what to me seemed the good points  in his new friends and to warn him  against any liltle weaknesses among  them which from time lo time I might  detect. Ruth did the rest. A father,  however much a comrade he may be  with his boy, can go only so far.  There i.s always plenty left which belongs to the mother���������������������������if she Is such a  mother as Ruth.  As for Ruth herself, I watched her  CHAPTER X.

I was told that the graduates of this school entered college  with a higher average than the graduates of most of the big. preparatory  schools. Certainly they had just as  good instruction, and if anything better discipline. There was more competition here and a real competition.  Many of'tlie pupils were foreign born  and a much larger per cent., of them  children of foreign born. Their parents had been over here long enough  to realize what an advantage an education was and the children went at  their work with the feeling that, their  future depended upon their application here.

(To   be  continued)  THE FIRST OIL PAINTINGS  Thc curator of the Museum at Ghent  has resolved one of thc chief difficulties  in the history of painting, namely, the  attribution of the" invention of painting iu oils to Van Eyck in M2S. It  hits been known that the method of  painting in oils was used by a monk  named Thcophilus in thc twelfth century, and that statues, standards, banners, and manuscript miniatures were  decorated by means of it both ln Germany and Flanders previously to the  work of Van Eyck, Yet a strong tradition has always associated Van Eyck  with  its primary  discovery.  From a German writer of the sixteenth century, Carl Van Maude, who  retained connections with successors of  the Van Eyck school, the curator of  the Ghent Museum, has, however, extracted   thc  following  paragraph  "Van Eyck covered his paintings, executed in distemper, with a coating  of his own composition, into which a  particular kind of oil entered as an  element. This procedure had great  success, owing to the brilliance which  it imparted to the works. Many Italian painters had sought this secret  in vain, having failed in their efforts  owing to ignorance of the proper process."-  According to this authority, therefore, Van Eyck invented a process  which had effects equivalent to those  of painting in oils���������������������������namely, that of  brilliant surface and that of resistance  to damp and even to washing, but this  process was a process of oil coating.  This Interpretation of Van Eyck's  secret'corresponds with the known fact  that Alfonso, King of Sicily, only sent  Antonello   of   Messina   to   Bruges   for  BISMARCK'S  BOSWELL  Next   to   Boswell,  Busch  is  perhaps  the   most  faithful,   watchful,  ancl   devoted   biographer   that   ever   a   great  man had.     Indeed, the personality of  Busch is almost as interesting as that  of Boswell���������������������������who was a far more clever  fellow than his contemporaries thought,  ancl who was in some respects as great  a man of letters as the genius whom  he immortalized.     Busch figures sometimes in as  tender and sometimes in  as  grotesque relations  wilh   his  chief  as Boswell with Johnson.     Usually he  is "Kittle  Busch"���������������������������a  German  term  of  endearment���������������������������and   the  great  man   pets  him;   and  the  great' man's  wife,   like  the good housekeeper she was and the  kindly soul,  sees  that he gels a good  room   and  has  at   dinner  the   special  soup she has heard  him say he likes.  On other occasions he excites the great  man's  wrath,  and  Bismarck thunders  al him with Olympian fury.    And yet  even  in these moments, when  he has  given Bismarck good cause for anger  by  his   indiscretions���������������������������for   Busch   had  the supreme gift of the true biographer  in being absolutely and  incurably indiscreet���������������������������you  can  see  that the anger  of the terrible man is short-lived; that,  after all, he loves Busch and is grateful to him; and moreover, you get .the  welcome feeling that his character, so  grim,  often  so   cynical,  sometimes  so  terrible, is very human after all;   and  he has no sooner given a blow lo one  who   loves  him  than  he  is   eager  to  soothe and to caress him.    '  There was nothing of the flunkey in  the attitude of Busch. For him there  was only one man, only one hero, in  this Titanic struggle; all the rest he  despised, or even hated. Indeed, he  loved Bismarck so much that he hated  most of the people who were brought  into close contact with him; all but  one. and this one he loved because he  knew that he was like himself in the  utterness of his devotion to the..Chief���������������������������  as Bismarck was called. Busch speaks1  quite freely about0 even the highest  royalties. He reduces the Emperor to  his proper proportions as merely a  super in the great drama in which Bismarck played the star role; Frederick,  the next Emperor, he dismisses as an  "incubus," whose death is a relief to  him; the dismissal of Bismarck by thc  present . ^ Emperor he describes as  "base." "And as for the Crown Princes  and King and' Grand Dukes, Busch  dismisses them all as frivolous creatures who wasted the time and tried  the nerves,of the great .Master. Busch  does not stop there;-' he is the. chief  agent .in "that .warfare,, against women  which Bismarck waged for so many  years.' " He assails the'Empress Augusta over and oyer again; he assails  with even greater > vehemence her who  became, the Empress Frederick;h and  no man contributed so much to create  the atmosphere of unpopularity and  misunderstanding in "which that poor  woman lived as Busch, ."with his eternal harpings against "die Englander-  inn"���������������������������the Englishwoman���������������������������an epithet  that did not help her- to the scaffold  as      "I/Autili'ichienne"     helped     poor  Headaches Over liie Eyes  Mean Frontal Catarrh  APT TO GET INTO  EARS, CAUSING  DEAFNESS, OR TO REACH THE  LUNGS  AND   END   IN   CONSUMPTION.

The boat was a total loss and .very  little of her cargo of general merchandise was ever recovered, She lay  there in the sand and gradually went  to pieces, and as the years went by  the sands covered what remained. The  boat-ancl the-story-uf her loss, became,  only a memory.  Early last fall Captain Miller, of Detroit, In cruising about in search of  sand dropped anchor in the old north  channel opposite Algonac and began  scooping up groat quantities of the  lake botiom. From time to lime hc  picked up pieces of an old wreck. Now  It was a section of smokestack, now a  pari of an engine, and Thursday night  the clam shell let go of an object that  rolled down the sand pile to the deck,  ancl whi/h on inspection proved to be  ;i five-gallon keg. Somebody started  to throw it overboard, but finding it  heavy and tightly scaled set it aside  for further investigation. Thc investigation was hastened when the  clam shell hit the keg and broke out  a slave. Thc sailors smelled it, then  tasted, and finding it well flavored, with  a. sailor's disregard of consequences,  began drinking. Captain Miller came  on the scene in time to save about a  gallon and a half of the cider,,,  One would expect cider that old to be  as hard as nails, with a song and  dance in every glass, but it was not.  The best champagne never had a finer  flavor, and age had mellowed it until it  was as smooth as oil. On the end of  the keg was branded the words "Genuine New York .State Apple Juice,"  and the flavor proved the statement,  It would have passed inspection under the pure food and drug act.  The explanation of the cider's sweetness is frund in the fact that it was  practically in cold storage for all these  LOOKED BEFORE HE LEAPED  The late Dennis Spencer, of Napa,  Cal.. was a" noted lawyer: " One day  there entered his-office "in Napa a  bright-looking, well-dressed Chinaman.

"Five hundrod  dollars."  The Chinaman said he would call  again.  A few days later he returned to  Spencer's oflice, gravely placed S500  in coin on the desk before the aston- .  ished attorney, and said:  "All lite.

The sound of a human voice struck her ears, through the  dark insanity of the moment.  "T-yes, I am," she answered faintly.  "Room for another?" The man's  voice was tense.  "Jf you can find a place for your  feet, .there is room to hang on this  rod," she quavered, with returning  hopefulness.

Again a silence fell, but presently he  blonde.  Matters became so strained that  George eventually locked his credulous  helpmeet out of the house. However,  he declared that if she was willing to  abjure her faith in such a mode of  peering into the future, that her home  was waiting for her. The wife then  signified her intention of, thereafter  taking George's word against the evidence of the lea-leaves, ancl.the judg"  scnt"them~ home" together.  An occasional graver turn is given  to theso philanderings with the occult  ancl the revealers thereof, as is instanced In the case of a woman who  was told by tho cards that she was  about to die. She "ran" them many  times, with the same result each lime.  Within the time allotted by them she  look to her bed and died, although the  doctors were unable to discover any  disorder.  Another woman, who was lold by the  clairvoyants that her husband was in  love with another woman, put her  babies to bed ancl jumped out of the  fifth-story window. Still another woman is now serving a sentence in prison for shooting a supposed rival named by a spiritualist.  Nowhere is a woman's credulity more  apparent than in the zeal with which  she embraces the new, strange religions that spring up every day in a  mushroom growth. The majority of  the "Holy Rollers," "Holy Ghost and  Us" society, "Flying Rollers," "Apostolic Faith in the Gift of Tongues,"  and all their ilk are women worshippers. Occasionally their faith betrays  them into strange and ridiculous circumstances.  Not long ago a prominent wealthy  society woman began to dispose of  much of her property in order to devote  SMMhGmv  CTODQ rhilPIIQ HEALS THE I.UNGS  OlUrtf oUUfand price, is c^^  the-proceeds,to"the church of which  she had recently become a member.  Her indignant relatives had her sanity'  inquired into, and named as one of her  eccentricities her habit of bathing in  the dew. The devotee admitted following this rite of her religion, which  was known as "sun-worshipping,", the  cult of the Mazdaznans, and maintained that under the constitution she.had  a right to bathe any way she .wanted  to. Eventually she. was adjudged of  sound" mind,' and .is probably following out in perfect tranquillity all the  peculiar rites of that sect.    - *  In another instance a, woman was  persuaded that her only,-hope :of sal-,  vation lay in obeying the dictates- of  _the ofl leers cf.the church, who, insisted'  that she'niust'berimm'ersed'in the"river  for. baptism..

BANTON,  _The Board of School Trustees met  in special session last Saturday evening to open the tenders for the erection of the new $50,000 school house  to be built this summer. The object  of asking for tenders at this time  ���������������������������previous to voting on the loan bylaw for the issuance of debentures in  the sum to be paid by the city���������������������������wasj  to get at the actual cost so as to-  know how much to ask for in the  by-law. There were four tenders  opened from Enderby builders, one!  from Vernon and one from Armstrong!  but as several of lhe tenderers re-j  quested their figures to be held from!  publication at this time, we are not'  in position to make public any of the  tenders made.  Now that the School Board knows  the actual amount needed, no time;  will be lost in preparing for the'  by-law to be- submitted. But before -  doing so'it will be necessary to learn!  from the Provincial Government if it-  will make tbe additional grant suffi-j  cient.-to cover the increased cost!  over and above the 60 per cent, of the;  amount' originally believed to be>  sufficient. ..Steps have already, been  taken in this direction, and the re-i  suit" will be made known by the1  Board at the   earliest possible date.;  Tenders were called for for the erec-j  tion of   the- school    building on the  site selected by   the   Board, west of  the railway track..    This would seemj  necessary before definite figures could  be   arrived    at.    - But   whether   the  Board    will   be   able   to   leave   the  choice of   site   with the rate-payers,  to be decided   when   the loan 'by-law  is voted upon,   as some are suggesting,-remains to be seen.    The action  of the Board in   selecting what they  considered the   best site is not to be  questioned.      Still,    where   tliere   .is  strong opposition,   some    even going  so far   as   to   say   they   will   vote  against the by-law if the building is  to be erected on  the Board, it   would seem to be the!  Amateur statisticians have been  figuring the losses occasioned hy the  recent miner's strike in the Old Country, and have arrived at some startling facts. W. H. Schooling, a,prom  inent statistical writer, estimates  that the miners lost, forty millions  in wages and savings, while $140,000,-  000 was lost because of the non-production of coal and the consequent  suspension of other industries, making a grand total of $180,000,000.  Where the Gourlay is Made  PURE BRED DAIRY CATTLE  Mr. A. McQuarrie took in the recent sale of pure-bred dairy cattle at  Okanagan Landing and brought home  to his Glengerrack Dairy fourteen fine  head of stock, among them being four  pedigreed animals. These latter are  the finest Holstein-Friesian cattle  ever imported into the' Okanagan and  were the property of the Okanagan  Dairy, at the Landing. Mr. McQuarrie believes in having nothing in his  dairy herd that is.., not the best, and  in adding this bunch of stock to his  already fine large herd is aiming to  have a class of animals that cannot  be excelled in the west.���������������������������Armstrong  Advertiser.

'   ��������������������������� -���������������������������  City Council Submits Loan By-law  to Lay Permanent Arterial Drains  The Mayor and all members of the  "City Council were present at a meeting of that;'-body- in the- Council  Chamber on7Mon'day, evening. " Sev-  eral.citizens' were also .in' attendance.  ,, The" matter of-drainage was opened  by the, report' of Aldermen" Blanchard  and Peel as-to-the approximate cost  of a general drainage system. -In  this report it was "proposed to put in  a permanent drainage system, which  would carry "off, the surface seepage  on Vernon road,' and all the property  and streets within the city boundary,  .Roughly it was - estimated that it  would" require 16,550 feet of 6jinch  pipe,13 6,450 feet of "8-inch, 3,500 feet of  10-inch;<-and' 1,400 .feet "of 12: or" 14-  inch pipe, and 27,900 feet of ditching  and 'filling to - do' the trick; and the  estimated cost was ^10,466. This did  not include the cost of stand-pipes,  gratings, tees; elbows, etc.       -     ;  ���������������������������  Before going into a system sio extensive, it was_7seen that.many requirements would have to be gone into, which would necessitate considerable time, an'd it was decided ;to confine" this season's 'operations-to putting in the out-flow drains'on George  and Knight, streets," into which ,the  branch drains would empty when they  are eventually^ laid*. ' ~A_ by-law covering this expenditure was decided on  and will be found in- another column  of this paper.   ' , '..".-  Applications * for water - service were  read from E.- Hallet, bowling alley;  W.' Robinson,' house in-erection; H.  Byrnes, and the Okanagan Saw Mills.

Pearson et al, andB, Vogel et al.  for sidewalks on ' George street and  Granville   street."- Referred to Public  Works committee.  A petition from the property owners on Salmon Arm road asked the  city to macadamize that thorough-  lare from the city limits to Knight  street. Laid over for further consideration. In the meantime the city  will make the necessary repairs to  tlie road to put it in shape for the  heavy spring traffic.  A latter from Miss Cobb asked the  city to erect permanent steps on Harvey street from the Salmon Arm  road to the top of the hill. It was  decided to repair the steps now in  existence.  R. J. Carefoot wrote asking the  city to put driveway t-rossings in the  sidewalk in front of his home. Referred to the Public Works committee  The matter of donation from the  city to Empire Day celebration was  discussed, and $400 set aside for this  purpose. It was- also decided to  build new band stands, and also repair grandstand and build box offices  at grandstand and gate. Other improvements were further suggested.

etisily    ut,d    certainly    preventable    of
diseases, aud there would seem now to
be no valid excuse fur the bringing up
oi' children with decayed tooth, together
with all the pathological results wliich
they  give  rise   to.     Unfortunately,  so
i'ar  it i.s  only those who have  become
interested in the f-ubject  and  who are
tho.nselves   possessed   of   the   required
knowledge  to  come   to   correct  conclusions   on   the   subject,   who   know   the
simple secrets of prevention, that is to
say., a goodly proportion of the 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 the idea
of letting what is already knoiyn io a
few become more widely known, among
medical   men   more   especially,   that   J
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  tho  etiology  of
the disease., because for some considerable   time,  incredulity,  ignorance,  prejudice,   vested  interests  and   the   commercial spirit are likely to continue to
make  a stubborn    resistance    to    the
diffusion  of the truth.    It would be a
great 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
arc now definitely known  to be wrong,
and   indeed   often    actually    markedly
instrumental   in   causing    the    disease.
Medical men should certainly make sure
that it is not their precepts which arc
largely responsible for tno 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   .'Dental   Surger\
and  Pathology.-'���������'  or  the larger  "System of Dental Surgery/' edited by Mr.
Norman Bennett, about to be published
by the Oxford Medical Press.    Therein
they will find thc ground work of the
subject    sufficiently    and     thoroughly
treated to let them master all iinp.irta.i_t
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 informa-
; tion. '"'"." "'
|    From what, has. already been said it
is obvious that the cleansing power of
(true  or effectual  mastication  is better
1 almost   beyond", comparison   than   arti-
jficial   cleaning.     Efficient   mastication
j not only keeps the teeth clean and free
from injurious plaques of bacteria, but
fhe gums are kept clean, healthy, firm
and so  finely applied to the  necks  of
the  teeth as  almost to  defy.the lodgment of all appropriate kinds o':"foods.
Thc peridental membrane and alveolar
processes are kept strong raid healthy,
and no doubt the gingival organ is likewise benefitted.   The bones of the jaws
also   are   stimulated   iu   their   development, and the teeth are more perfectly
implanted and regular than when mastication has been insufficient, and artificial  cleansing  has   been  solely  relied'
upon   for   their   welfare.       Moreover,
digestion   and   the   general   health  are
both directly and iitdirectly benefitted.
It   is.   therefore,  the  obvious   duty   of
every dental practitioner to instil into
his patients the value of efficient mastication, and to get them to understand
that  no  amount  of artificial  cleansing
will  make up  for the continual  trnns-

:tti(l that this is doubly important with
regard to growing children whose habits
have  yet  to  be formed.     It  is  hardly
necessary  to  say  that  the  attempt  to
leach  iho art  of  vigorous  mastication
is   perfectly  futile  uiilers  the   food   is
of such ti consistency as will stimulate
or require it.   From Dr. Black's Phago-
dynamoiuotric records   .\e observe that
the vigor of mastication is and must be
proportional  to the consistency of the
food .consumed,.if, tho food is.masticated,
.'it,   all.     Here,   however,   we   arc   itiet
with  a  difficulty,  for if' medical  practitioners advocate soft food  for children,   as   in   actual   practice   they   verv
ironorally do, and the dentist advocates
its discontinuance, then the diffusion of
thi'   rcfpiired   knowledge  is greatly  impeded.    An   the  general   medical   prac-
fitioiur comes iu contact \\;th children
at, a much earlier age than the dc.tist

children's mouths and' teeth before the
advice of a dentist may even be thought
of,    If is, therefore, obvious that medical  men  must,  leant  or be taught how
the inouth may be most effectually kept
clean.       Tluro   tire    few   indeed   who
realize  that  the  inouth   is,  or at least
ought to be. much ckaner after a meal
which  really requires mastication  than
tit.iny ol her time. Thc detergent effects
of rhe foodsti'.lfs have admittedly been
overlooked.     It   is   not    so    very    Jong
since  '.he  idea  that n  meal   inv'arianly
left the mouth  dirty  was generally believed even hy denlisls. so that wo can
hardly   expect   the   public   to   bo   con-
verted   nl   once   to   thc   idea  that   the
meals   themselves   should   bo   cloansimr
to the mouth and teeth.    It is not too
much  to  say  that, notwithstanding  its
immense importance  from tho point of
view  of general  health,    the    natural'
hygiene of the month has in the past to
till  intents and  pin pesos  beeu  entirely
overlooked.     It   is   true   that  artificial
cleansing   of. the   mouth   1ms   been   insisted   on,   but   that  some   foods  leave
the  mouth physiologically clean,  wnile
others leave it dirty, seems never in any
text-book of dietetics to havo been so
much as mentioned.   Poods which lodge
about the  teeth and  do not clean  the
mouth,   have   been   recommended  without the slightest concern as to whether
they kept the mouth, and indirectly the
alimentary   cantiJ,   free   from   chronic
fermentation,   so   long   as   they   were
known  to  be.  easily  digestible  and  to
supply the requisite amount ot proteid,
carbohydrate, etc.   Jn fact, the viewing
of  food   from   its   nutritional   and   not
its hygienic value is still a matter for
serious regret among those who understand cthe  value of oral and indirectly
alimentary  hygiene.    Thus  iu  reviewing an important medical book recently
published,   the  British  Dental  Journal
said, "We are at thc outset-pained to
find that wherever a  dietary is given
in  detail in  this work, as  ocing 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   load   to    the
production   of  lactic. acid   and   consequent,    decalcification    of    thc    dental
enamel.'-'    It is obvious that tho first
thing required for the diffusion of tho
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  beeu
done.     With   regard' to   medical   textbooks, unfortunately the importance of
the  subject has  not yet    been    fully
realized   by   all   the   writers.       Some,
however,    have    recognized   the   more
modern  teaching of dentists,  and  further  have  advocated  an  abandonment
of thc current practice of pap feeding
for' children,  not  only  on  account   of
thc teeth,  but because,-of harmfulless
with   regard   to   the   alimentary   canal
and   body .generally.    Notwithstanding
this," however, it. would seem desirable
that more,attention should be paid to
the  hygiene  of  the 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 arc granted
should  bo  demanded..   All  this  is important because*' thc subject    of    oral
hygiene is  necessarily associated .with
questions of dietetics, and consequently
in. this matte-rut is to the medical profession that the public look largely for
guidance.   As regards the dental branch
of thc  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
:lor:e 'nuch to awaken both thc medical
profession and the publie to the great
importance of the subject.    Here, it is
hardly necessary to say that the treatment of school children's teelh should
always be accompanied by instructions
as   to   tho  prevention   of   thc   disease.

The peculiar formation of hail-stones
and tho probable conditions of their
production have long been matters of
.much interest to-scienfcisls. 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 tlie 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 yield important results. "Heretofore, however, the comparative rarity
of their occurrence and tho great rapidity with which they melt",' has offered
obstacles to this. But Professor Boris
Weinberg, of Tomsk, Siberia, has just
perfected an apparatus, as wo learn
from Les 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 thc stones" can be removed,
sliced in extremely thin sections and
photographed by a polarizing miscros-
copc or autochromatic plates, as is done
with anatomical preparations.

feeling in the forehead and nost/ils. To
cure promptly, say, in half an hour,
there is nothing worth using except
Catiiirhozone. Vou inhale its balsamic
vapor, and feel as if you were among
the Norway pines. This is because
Catarrhozone contains a healing medi-
cine, light as pine air, which is breathed straight into the lungs aud bronchial
tubes. Away goes the cold; sneeziii<r
and catarrhal cough cease, bronchial
irritation stops; in short, you are cured
ol catarrh by a pleasant, simple remedv,
tree from sedatives and irritants.    "
'1 hat Catarrhozone is a swift, certain
means of destroying colds and catarrh
w proved by-the following statement
oi Mr. Pulos, ono of Broukvillc's best
known merchants:
"In the fall of 1903," writes Mr. Pulos, tinder date of June 10th, 1910, "I
contracted a very severe cold which
developed into Catarrh. At that time
I was living in New York State and
treated with four different physicians,
who afforded me no relief. On coining
to Brockville I was advised hy a friend
to try Catarrhozone. I bought the dollar outfit, and was gratified by the results. I was completely cured by Catarrhozone, and have used it since to ..
check a cold, with unfailing results. It '
is the grandest medicine in existence,
and I hope my testimony will be of
some uso to other fellow-sufferers.
(Signed) '''George Pulos."    '

use of Catarrhozone. Two months'

One of the strangest creatures of thc
sea is a certain species of sea-spider
named nymphon gracile.
It has a body about the-size of a bit
of thread, a quarter of an inch long, aud

like the end of a thread split into two
horns; from each of_ the four knots
start two legs, one'on'cacli side;' niak-"

���������The legs are three or' four times
longer than the body, but the odd thing
about them is that the aliincntarytube,
into which the foot goes, runs, down
into every one of the legs, so that,
whatever the spider cats, circulates
through his legs, and, 'in fact, the legs
arc like thc body in internal structure.

of life is that thc baby sea-spider is not

THE CHRYSANTHEMUM  The Chinese chrysanthemum was introduced into England as far back as  17C-1, but apparently became extinct  there soon after. A purple variety,  however having* come from China to  France in 17S9 reached England six  years later. These fetched a high  price until their easy propagation became known. The skill and industry  in procuring varieties expanded with  such rapidity that the English soon became rivals even to the Chinese ancl  Japanese themselves. Thus the chrysanthemums soon escaped from the  confinement of conservatories and rapidly spread themselves over every part  of the island, filling the casements of  the cottagers and the parterres of the  opulent.

Seems like Alwildy is us set on lawing the town as she was set on marrying Irving  Wingert  thirty   years  ago.  "1 recollect the day lrv up and left  this part of the country. I was over  at Alwildy's���������������������������I lived across the road,  and ,her mother being dead, I used to  run in o nbusy days to help���������������������������and 1 see  ojd Mr. Clarke come stomping in from  the thrashing-machine, 'driving lrv in  front of him.

"Irving was a real handsome fellow,  brown and gipsy-looking, with one  long black curl hanging over his forehead. I-Ie come right over to where  Alwildy and me was stemming gooseberries.  " 'I must go, Alwildy,' says he, giving  that long-curl a fling back; 'but remember, no matter how long I may be  gone, that somewhere I'm thinking  of you and dreaming of you and working for you���������������������������yes, working my fingers  to t^e bone!

After  Irving was  gone,   the  old  man  declared if ever he come on the farm  again, he'd  run him off  with a shotgun;   and  if he wrote,-he'd  burn  the  letter  before Alwildy's eyes.

He wouldn't be shooed. He hung on,  not-saying much. He was a square.-  built chap, with steady gray eyes; the  kind of man you'd turn to in trouble,  and a good catch, too.. He owned the  quarter-section next to Clarke's, and  "hadn't kith or kin in the world, except  an old female relation of a cousin that  kept house for him." Old man Clarke's  . heart was set on a match between him  and Alwildy. but Sam would say:  ".'No hurry, Mr. Clarke. Some of  these days Alwildy will change her  mind;  then we'll fix things up.'  "She was eighteen when Wingert  went away,' and though she was nigh  on   to  twenty-three now,  she'd  never  "had a word nor a 1 ifre""of~\vritiirg-fromTchi 1 ur'eif  him. Most girls would have got tired  waiting; sometimes I had a notion that  'twasn't so much love for lrv as plain  stubbornness against her father that  kept her up.  "Along about the fifth year, her  younger sister, Emmy Lou, up and  married a young lawyer fellow, and  she and her husband moved out to  Kansas, where ho opened a law-6fficc.  -In -those- days-Kansas -seemed .an .'aw-.  ful long ways off, and Alwildy couldn't  bear to sec Emmy Lou go so far. I  recollect she was foretelling all kinds  of calamity out in that new country.  "Seemed like her foretelling was  coming true when six months after the  wedding comes a telegram from Kansas. Folks didn't send telegrams so  common in the early days as they do  now. They was sure sign of death  or sickness; I've seen a many women  fain-t and keel right over before they  even opened  the envelope.  " 'Come at once. Emmy Lou is sick,'  Alwildy's telegram said.  "There wasn't anything under the  shining sun Alwildy thought as much  of as she did of Emmy Lou. , That  message drove all thought of her vow  out of her head. She'd have started  in the clothes she stood in if 'twasn't  for her father.  " T don't want y6u should go out  there shabby, and shame Emmy Lou  and'her husband,' says he. 'Furthermore, there's no tellin' how long you  may have to stay.'  "So he helped me pack her trunk,  though he did more harm than good���������������������������  wadding dress skirts round and round  his hands like binding-twine, ancl  ramming them in any which way, and  shoving hats and shoos and ribbons all  down in the corners together. All the  time I could sec he was just brimming  over frith something or other that kept  .his old eyes twinkling.  " 'The old heretic,' thinks 1. 'He's  so glad to have his own way, and see  Alwildy break her promise about not  stepping off the farm, that he has no  proper feeling for poor Emmy Lou's  sickness.'  , "Sure enough, after he'd brought Alwildy's ticket, and the train was starting off, he hollers in through the car-  window:  " 'Well, Alwildy, I see you left the  farm after all, without waiting for  fiddlin' Wingert to take you off!'  "���������������������������Humph!' says she back at him.  'I'm going west; how do you know I  won't find him?'  "He had to run alongside and yell  his answer out considerable loud:  " 'If you do find him,' says he, 'you  won't f id much!'  "Well, when Alwildy stepped off on.  the platform in Kansas, there was  Emmy Lou  and her husband.  "'My stars, Emmy Lou!' says she.  'T thought you were sick abed!'  "' T was,' says Emmy Lou, 'but 'twas  fiomething that come quick and went  quick,     fm feeling better.'  "She looked kind of guilty when she  said it, and Alwildy suspected there  hadn't been much the matter with the  young one except lonesomeness. But  she didn't scold; and she thought as  long as she was there, she'd stay a  while, and go to the parties and dances  Emmy, Lou and her husband were  planning for her.  "Near as I can find out, Alwildy had  the best time of her life. There was  something to go to ** every night, and  her handsome looks and smart talking made her awful popular with the  young men. The prosecuting attorney���������������������������he was elected Governor two or  three years after���������������������������wanted to marry  her right off the reel. They say he  grieved for months because she  wouldn't have him. . ��������������������������� *   _  ��������������������������� "One morning, after Alwildy'd been  there two weeks or so, Emmy Lou's  husband asked her to ride over to the  next county-seat with him. - 'Twas a  real chilly morning, and'he drove"along  right smart for six or seven miles,  when he' began to say his team needed  a drink. Alwildy thought they wasn't suffering much on a cool morning  like that. Still, she didn't pay much  attention, and he turned into a place  by the roadside, where there was a  well with a crotched stick lying alongside.  . , -  "I've heard her describe that place  so. plain that* sometimes I think I  must have seen'it myself. 'Twas a  little black house.of upstanding boards,  battened on,the cracks. -Nigh every  window was broke but and stuffed  "with "rags, and the" lean"-to at".the"back  was thatched with cornstalks._,. All  about, "whichever way you looked, "wasn't, sign of bush or tree���������������������������nothing but  dried old sand-bur grass sticking up  out of the red sand. _ By the ramshackle old shed of. a stable was a  few shocks of corn, and an old' gray  horse with his bones coming through  the skin was drooping his- head in a  corner of the fence. **��������������������������� 'Twas just pure  desolation!  . "A man come shufiling out as they  drove up, and a young one of three or  four run out after him.   _    _  "'Howdy, strangers?' says'"- he.  'Won't you light out and rest?'  "Emmy Lou's husband allowed that  all they- needed was water. for .the  horses. ,    '  "'Naomi!' the man calls into the  house. *   '-i  "A tired-looking woman in a slimp-  sy blue calico dress came to the door.  She had a baby in her arms,-and another little young one was hanging to  the-tail of her-skirt. 'Twas a cold  November morning, with white frost  on the ground, but there wasn't sign  of  a shoe  on   him,   nor  her,   nor  the  " 'Naomi,' says he, 'can you draw a  bucket of water for this gentleman's  team? I got the misery in my back  this  morning.'  "He put up his hand to fling a curl  off his forehead, and then Alwildy  knew who it was. She says she come  a.s nigh fainting that minute as over  she come in her life.  "lrv   A"Vingert    hadn't    wasted    any  time He hadn't been-gone-qulte-five  years, and he had that poor, tired-looking creature and them three young  ones to show for it. He didn't recognize Alwildy, sho was so bundled up  in the beaver furs her father bought  her thc winter before, and she thanked  her merciful stars  ho  didn't.  "Well, the long and the short of it  was that when Alwildy came home,  there was her father and Sam Trainor  waiting when the train pulled in. Alwildy just looked at old man Clarke  and grinned, and he grinned back-  again. Not a word out of either one  of them! Thoy was pretty well matched up.  " 'Sam,' says she to Trainor, 'if you  ain't tired waiting, I expect I'm ready  to marry you.' '  "They was the 'finest-looking couple  that ever stood up together in the old  M. E. church. .Twenty years they  lived together without a cross word,  and when Sam died, como ten years  next summer, he left her independent  rich. There-ain't a bettpr-hearted  woman nor more charitable in the  town, but land's sake! As long as Alwildy lives in Davis Junction, the town  trustees will have law-work enough to  keep "em busy!"

'  Harold "retained his "new expression  with difficulty, and said sweetly, "Yes,  I was only, joking; it's a decent  present and all that, of "course. But  I -want the fourpence I put in, and I  can't got it out. I'll sell"it to you for  sixpence, Mill. Fourpence for the  fourpence, and twopence for the box.  =A=bargai n-H=ha\-e=it?-- ->-" -^-  "Rather a lot for the box, isn't it?"  asked Millicent, looking sharply at  Harold. "I���������������������������-I'll give your fivepence  for tho lot," she said.  "Done!" said Harold.  "Done!" said Millicent, with a little  smile, as she handed over the money.  Nobody saw the pas seul she danced  behind  the laurels.  Aunt Anne met her in \.he hall. "I  hope-yuii-haven't-told-l-limikl -of-the  half-crown put in his box. 1 want  it to be a pleasant little surprise for  him, dear."  "No, Auntie, 1- think it a lovely  secret, ancl I wouldn't tell htm for  worlds," said Millicent.  ADVERTISING   FOR   A   WIFE  A Brooklyn, N.Y., man recently made  uso of the personal column to make  known his willingness to take unto  himself a wife, and he was overwhelmed by eight hundred replies. He tabulated the results as follows:  Two-thirds of the correspondents  were widows.  All the widows had children.  One hundred and ninety-three ranged from twenty-five to thirty-five.  Five hundred and twenty-nine were  over thirty-five and under fifty.  Seventy-eight were willing to start  upon another matrimonial voyage after  they had attained the discretion that  is supposed to come after one is fifty.  In Denver an ex-convict advertised  for a wife, stating frankly that ho had  served a prison sentence, and almost  by return mail some twenty-five women had .attested their faith in his  good intentions by signifying their willingness to consider a proposal of marriage from him.  "I know you would appreciate a  good home ancl good cooking," wrote  one woman, "and as I was married to  a policeman for eight years, I guess  we could get along all right."  One of the amusing vagaries of a  woman's credulity is. that it often ends  with the marriage service. Whereas,  she was willing to believe the most  romantic stories beforehand, afterward  she regards with suspicion the most  commonplace incidents of her husband's life, such as delayed trains,  business at the office after closing  hours, and the like.-    .   - '  In his story of- how he was able to  win -so many women, Johann Hoch,  the arch bigamist and wife-murderer,  said: - ...-.-  "I tell the woman a long story of  my life, making my character according to the personality of the woman.  It must in all cases be full of romance  of some kind. Sometimes a suggestion of the occult is effective, mystery  is always good, tales of terrible persecution,"- of vague but awful crimes," and  even insanity, have a powerful influence on occasions."        "       --���������������������������-.--  Of course, this is-all-an appeal to  the. woman's imagination. -, Probably  the prosaic excuses a man usually offers.in" the" bosom of.his fam'ily'fail in  efficacy because they'do not make this  appeal.

He broke into society and became a lion at afternoon  teas and receptions.  Cheiro was an Irishman, but claimed to be an Egyptian or a Hindu as  the mood seized him. He said he acquired" the art'-of-.sccing-into- the "future  through being hypnotized in India by  Brahmin priests and buried for forty  days in a tiger-skin. After surviving,  this terrible test, he declared, the  Brahmins made him a miracle-worker.  In Paris thc handsome wizard became Count Louis llamon, ancl was  finally arested on the charge of swindling two women to the tune of half  a million.  THE   HEIGHT  OF   IDLENESS  Some of the Atlantic steamship lines  have added a golf course to their outfit in order to relieve thc intolerable-  tedium of the interminable Atlantic  passage. The newspaper jackass who  is detailed to record these things announces the fact as an example of modern enterprise. The intelligent reader  regards it as an example of vulgar  idiocy.  The Atlantic passage at present occupies about six days. The first day  is spent in watching the receding land,  settling down, and discussing seasickness. The last day is spent in settling up, packing, watching the approaching land, ancl imploring your  wife not to smuggle, That leaves  four days. Now the man who cannot  spend four days at sea without demanding immensely costly amusements  that must necessarily be futile owing  to the size ancl movements of the ship  must be a congenital and vicious Idiot.  What he needs Is a strait waistcoat  and not a toy golf course.      Already  there is a reaction.against this sort of <���������������������������  thing.     Respectable  ' passengers, are7  choosing steamers-where they are not  likely to be brought into-contact .with _  the"  riff-raff   of    the   nouveau - riche, -  where their  eyes  and  their  ears   will  not  be  assailed  by  the'vulgar  crea- .-.  tures  whose  only  ambition   in  life  is.'"  to'persuade you of their wealth. --.Per-,.-,  haps  some "day  a  really  enterprising -  steamship line will advertise that there  is  no  danger of meeting a new  mil-��������������������������� .-���������������������������  lionaire upon its boats,'but they'will *���������������������������'-  have to be big boats.      -        .-..-- <_. }  J ...z-^\  ���������������������������:r  v-.  -jy-t  ~iJ"' ������������������������������������������������������ **:  CAME  IN  PAIRS,      ' ���������������������������  One morning a man walked.into his--  club' smilin'g.and said :-"B-k>- hoys," l'm'.  afraid I- t-t-took'm-nipre"7*wsi:.e-,.last '  n-n-night than a ch-ch-chureh mem���������������������������  ber.should trt-tak'e"-.'._���������������������������... ..
