Mrs. Poison was  always a liberal contributor to the  needs of the sick and injured, and  was largely instrumental in getting  for the Vernon hospital many of the  furnishings required in the *carly  stages of its growth, and her work  at that time won .'or her a warm  spot in the hearts of the hospita  staff.

'CAPTAIN" MOFFET  Here is a, bit of history in connection with Manager Moffet of the Columbia Flouring Mills, that is not  known in Enderby, even by the many  friends of the "captain" who long  ]f, ���������������������������* have recognized his deep-hearted but  brusque philanthropy. It is taken  from a coast exchange:  "Capt. F.  V. Moffet, _oiiEnderby_  B. C, for 20 years a travelling salesman of the North Pacific Coast conn  try, left thc road    several years ago  to engage in the flouring mill business  and is thc owner   of the largest mill  in that section  of British Columbia.  Often leading   in   any charitable  or  philanthropic work undertaken by th  travelling men,    hc won the title o  "captain"  through   -.leading basebal  games given in behalf of some need  family,   and    the   title has stuck t  him through all the years.

EX HER BY  PRESS  AND  WALKER'S WEEKLY -  li  sp WILLIAM CARLETON  Copyright,  1911  [By Small,'Mnynnrd & Co., Inc.  CHATTER   VII.  Nine   Dollar:  (Continued.)  a  Week  np HAT'S lhc- way, Ruth -was. Every  JL day after this she made ine  change, after 1 came had. from  my swim, into the business suit I' wore  wlu'ii 1 came down here, and which  now by contrast' looked-almost new,  She even made me wear a lie with; my  llannel shirt. Every morning I started  out clean shaven and wilh my work  clothes as fresh as though 1 were a  contractor myself. I objected at lirsl  because il seemed too much for her  to do to wash the things every day,  but she said it was a good deal easier  than washing them once a week. Incidentally lhat was one of her own  little schemes for saving trouble and  it seemed to me a good one; instead  of collecting her soiled clothes for  seven days and then tearing herself  all to pieces with a whole hard forenoon's work, she washed a little every  day.' By this plan it took her only  about on hour each morning to Keep  all the linen in the house clean and  sweet. We had the roof to dry it on  and she never ironed anything except  perhaps the tablecloths and handkerchiefs. We had no company to cater  to and so long as we knew things were  clean, that's all  we  cared.  We got around the rock all right.  It proved not to be a ledge at all. I  myself, however, didn*t accomplish as  much as 1 did the first day, for 1 was  slower in my movements. On the  other hand, I think 1 improved a little  in my handling of the crowbar. At  the noon hour I tried to start a conversation with Anton, but he understood lillie English and I knew no  Italian, so we didn't go far. As he sat  in a group of bis fellow countrymen  laughing and jabbering he made me  " feel distinctly like an outsider. There  were one or two English-speaking  workmen besides myself, but somehow  they didn't interest me as much as  these Italians. It may have been my  imagination but they seemed to, me a  decidedly inferior lot. As a rule they  -were, men who took the job only to  keep themselves from starving and  quit at the end of a week or two only  to cqme back when they" needed more  money.  ,_.=>_  I must make an exception of an  Irishman I will call Dan Rart'erty. . He  was *a big blue-eyed fellow, full of fun  "and" fight, -.with a good, natured contempt of the Dagoes, ancl was a born  leader. ' I noticed, the first day," that  he. came nearer-being the bossJof the  gang than the foreman, and I suspect  .the latter himseif noticed it, for he  seemed to have if in for Dan.* There  never was an especially dirty job to  be done but .what Dan was sent. I-Ie  , always obeyed but he used to slouch  off wilh his big red "fist doubled up,  ' muttering curses that brought out his  brogue at its best. Later on he confided in me what he was- going to do  to that boss. If he had ..carried out  his threats'he. would long since havo  been electrocuted and I would have  lost a good 'friend. Several times I  thought the two men were coming to  blows but though Dan would have  clearly loved a fight and could have  handled a dozen men like the foreman,  he always managed to control himself  in time to avoid it.  "I don't wan ter be after losin' me  job for the dirthy spalpeen," he growled  ti me.  But he came near it in a way hc  wasn't looking for later in the week.  It was Friday and half a dozen of us  -in���������������������������wnrlt- mi��������������������������� Ilia.  Then   I ���������������������������saw   his  "You shan't  he started  1 saw the  watch' him.  was clearer  1 sat duwn  Then  lying  =uo*v  =hfic4=been=s&  second level. It was clamp and suffocating down there, fifty feet below  lhe street, 1 felt as though 1 had  gone into the mines. I didn't like it  bul I knew that there was just as  much lo learn here as above nnd that  it must all be learned eventually. The  sides wore braced with heavy timbers  like a mine shaft to prevent the dirt  from falling in and there was the con-  __ slant _flrtni.fr thnt in spite of this ll  might cave" iii7 Wc" "went" "down "by  rouuh ladders made by nailing strips  of board across two pieces of joist  and thr work down thero was back-  bresikintr and monotonous. We heaved  the dirt Into a big iron bucket lowered  by tho hoisting engine above. It was  heavy, wot soil that weighed like lend.  From th'- beginning thc men complained of hfitdaolu's and one by ono  Ihey crawled up the ladder again for  fresh air. Others wore sent clown but  nt the ond of an hour they too retreated. Dan and I stuck it out for  a while. Thon I began to get dizzy  myself. I didn't know what the trouble  was but when I began to wobble a bit  Dan  placed  his hand on  my shoulder.  "Botthor climb out o' here," he said.  "I'm thinkin' it's gas."  At that time 1 didn't know what  sewer gas was. I couldn't smell'anything ancl thought he must be mistaken.  "You'd hotter come too," I answered,  making for the ladder.  He wasn't coming but I couldn't get  up vor-v well without him so he followed a Ions: behind. At tho top we found  tho foreman fighting mad and trying  to spur on anothor gang to go down.  Thoy wouldn't move. When he saw  us come  up  he  turned  upon   Dan.  '"Who ordered you out of there?"  he t'Towlofl.  "Tlie   gas."   answered   Dan.  "Gas bo damned." shouted the foreman. "Vnti're a bunch of white llver-  ed coward"���������������������������all of you."  I saw Dan double up hi? fists and  start towards tho man. The latter  checked him with a command.  "Go back down there or you're lired,"  he said lo 'him.  Dan   turned   red.  jaws  come  together.  "Begoci!" he answered.  fire  me,  anyhow."  Without,  another   word  down   the   ladder   agaIn.  Italians crowd  together to  By   that   time   my   head  but  my  logs were weak.  a moment uncertain what to du.  1 heard soiih-./im: .-,.  "By   God,   he's   right!       He's  there al thc bottom."  I started towards the ladder but  someone shoved me back. Then I  thought of the bucket. It was above  ground ancl 1 staggered towards it  gaining strength at each step. 1 jumped in it and shouted to the engineer  to lower mc. He obeyed from instinct.  I went down, down, clown to what  seemed like the centre of the earth.  When the bucket struck the ground I  was dizzy again but I managed to get  out, heave the unconscious Dan in and  pile on top of him myself. When 1  came tu, I was in an ambulance on  my way to the hospital but by the  time I had reached the emergency room  I had taken a grip on myself. I knew  that if ever Ruth heard of this she  would never again be comfortable.  When they took us out I was able to  walk a little. The doctors wanted to  put me to bed but I refused to go.  I sat there for about an hour while  they worked over Dan. "When I found  that he would be all right by morning  I insisted upon going out. I had a bad  headache, but I knew the fresh air  would drive'this away and so it did,  though it left me weak.  One ��������������������������� of the hardest day's work I  ever did in my life was killing time  from then until five o'clock. Of course,  the papers got hold of it and that gave  me another scare but luckily the nearest they came to my name was,Darlington, so no harm was done. And  they didn't come within a mile of getting the real story- "When in a later  edition one of them published my  photograph I felt absolutely safe for  they had me in a full beard and thinner than I've ever been in my life.  When I came home at my usual time,  looking a bit white perhaps but otherwise normal enough, the first question  Ruth asked me was:  "What have you done with your  .dinner pail, Billy?"        --   --  Isn't a man always sure io do some  such fool thing as that, when he's trying to keep something quiet from his  wife? I had to explain that I had forgotten il and.that was enough to excite suspicion at any time. She kept  me uneasy for ten minutes and the  best I could do was to admit, finally  that I wasn't feeling very well. Whereupon she made me go to bed and fussed over me all the evening arid worried all the next day.  I reported for work- as usual in the  morning, and found we had a new  foreman. It was a relief because I  guess if Dan hadn't knocked down the  other one, someone else would have  clone if sooner or later. At that the  man had taught mo something about  seAver gas and that is when you begin  to feel dizzy fifty feet below the street,  it's time to go up the ladder about as  fast as your wobbly legs will let yo".  even if you don't smell anything.  Rafferty  didn't  turn  up ior  two or  three  days.   "When   he   did   appear  it  was with a simple:  "Mawnin', mon."

She did belter  than this later on. A fairer:,estimate  could" have been made at the end ol  tho month and a still fairer even than  thai, at ihc end of lhe year. It sounded almost too good to be true but it  was a fact. We had lived, and Uvea  well on this amount ancl as yet Ruth  was inexperienced. She hadn't learned all she learned later, For lhe benefit of those who may think we went  hungry 1 have asked Ruth to write out  the bill of fare for this week as nearly  as she can remember it.. One thing  you ��������������������������� must keep in mind is that of  everything we had,- we had enough.  Neither Ruth, thc boy, nor myself ever  left, the table or dinner pail unsatisfied.

On Saturday night of that first week  I came home with nino dollars in my  pocket. I'll never be prouder again  than I was when I handed them over  tti Ruth. And Ruth will never again  be prouder than she was wnen, al'tet  she had laid aside three of them for  thoront and live for current expenses,  she picked out a one-dollar bill, and,  criissiri'.' the room, placed il ln tho  irinL'.or jar. This was a little blue af-  f fir in which we had always dropped  whal pennies and nickels we cou'd  spare.  "There's our nest-egg," sho announced.  "Vou don't mean to tell me you're  that much ahead of the game the first  week?"  "Look here, Billy," she answered.  She brought out an itemized list of'  everything she had bought from last  Monday, including Sunday's dinner.  I've kept that list. Many of the things  .she had bought were not yet used up  but she had computed the cost of the  amount actually used. Here it is as I  copied it off:  Flour, .25  Lard, .15  Cream of tartar and soda, .05  Oat meal, .04  Molasses, .05  Sugar, .12  Potatoes, .20  Rice, .00  Milk, 1.12  Eggs.  .24  Rye  broad,   .10  Sausages, .22  Lettuce, .03  Roans.   .12  Salt  pork, ,15  Corn   moal.   .flfi  Graham moal, ,05  Bnttor.  .45  Choose.   .Ofi  Breakfast:  muffins.

A word about that bread pudding.  Ruth tells mc she puts in an extra  quart of milk and then bakes it all  day when she bakes her beans, stirring it every now and then. I never  knew before how the trick was done  but It comes out a rich brown and  tastes like plum pudding without raisins. She says that If you put In raisins" it t"a'sro.s"_exa"cl.ly"llke"a"plum pudding.  So at thc end of the first week 1  found myself with eighty dollars loft  over from the old home one dollar  saved in the now, all my bills paid,  and Ruth, Dick and myself all fit as  a fiddle.  six months I let the idea grow. If it  did nothing else it added zest to my  new work. 1 shoveled as though 1  were digging for diamonds. It made  me a young man again. It made me  a young American again. It brought  me out of bed every morning with  visions; it sent me lo sleep at night  with dreams.  But I'm running ahead of my story.  1 thought I hud appreciated Sunday  when it meant a release for one day  from the ullice of the United Woollen,  but as with all the other 'things j felt  as though it had been but the shadow  and thai only now had 1 found the  substance In the first place 1 had  not been able completely lo shake the  ollice in ihe last few years. 1 brought  it home with me and on Sundays it  furnished half the subject of conversation. Every little incident, every expression on Morse's face was analyzed in the attempt to see what it  courted, for or ogainst, the possible  future raise. Even when out walking  with the boy the latter was a constant  reminder. It was as .though he were  merely a ward of the United Woollen  Company.  But when I put away my shovel at  five o'clock on Saturday that was the  end of my ditch digging. I came  home after that and 1 was at home  until I reported for work on Monday  morning. There was neither work nor  worry left hanging over. It meant  complete relaxation���������������������������complete rest  And the body, I found, rests better  than the mind.  Later in my work' J. didn't experience this so perfectly as I now did  because then I accepted new responsibilities, but for the -first few months  I lived in lazy content on this ono  day. For the most part those who  lived around mc did all the time.' On  fair summer days half the population  of the little square basked in the sun  with eyes half closed from morning  until night. Those who didn't, went  to the neighboring beaches many of  which they could reach for a nickel or  visited such public buildings as were  open. But wherever they went or  whatever they did, they loafed about  it. And a man can't truly loaf until  he's done a hard week's work which  ends with the week.  As for us we had our choice of any  number of pleasant occupations. 1  insisted that Ruth should make the  meals as simple as possible on that  clay and both the boy and myselt  helped her about them. We always  washed the dishes and swept the floor.  First of all there was the roof. I  early saw the possibility of this much  neglected spot. It was fiat and had  a fence around it for it was meant to  be used'for the hanging out of clothes.  Being a new building, it had been,built  a story higher than its older neighbors  so that we overlooked the other roofs.  There was a'generous space through  which we-.saw the harbor. P, picked  up a strip- of old canvas for a trifle  in'one of the shore-front-junk-shops  which dealt, in second-hand ship supplies and arranged it over one corner  like a'canopy. Then 1 brought home  with me some bits of board that were  left over from the wood construction  at the ditch and nailed these together  to make a rude sort of window'box.  It was harder to get dirt than it was  wood but little by little I brought homo  enough finally to fill the boxes. In  these we planted radishes and lettuce  and a few flower seeds. We had almost as good a garden as we used to  have in our back .yard. At any rate,  it was just as much fun to watch the  things grow, and though the lettuce  never amounted to much we actually  raised some very good radishes. " The  flowers did well, too.  (To   be   continued.) "  prey in a sporting manner entitles hint  lo a small share of our respect which  a sc'avenger; like the hyena could never  command.  Packs range from fifteen to forty in  number. The note is bell-like and  rather musical. One writer, Sir Andrew Smith, likens it to' a "Ho-ho-ho-  lio" sound, tending to run one into th������������������  other. It is a moot point as to whether they ever bark in the ordinary,  way.  ' .  '.  The Capo hunting dog seems incapable of thorough domestication. They  have been crossed with other dogs, but  th : resull has never been satisfactory;  the young retain the treacherous nature of the wild parent. The hunting  dog is numerous in East Africa, and  most sporting parties account for a  few.  HOW TUBERCULOSIS SPREADS  Sooner or later the tuberculous co*v?  begins to give off the germs of the disease. The germs escape by the mouth  ancl nose, the bowels, in the milk, and  in discharges from the genital organs.  When lhc germs are being given off in  any of these ways, the disease ia  known as open tuberculosis.  Germs discharged from the mouth  and nose arc coughed up from the  lungs, and are sprayed over the food  in front of the cow, or are carried in  the air for a lime until they fall to  the ground. Cows in adjoining stalls  may take in these germs in tbe air ,  they breathe or in the food they eat  and so contract thc disease.  Germs discharged from the bowel*  are mixed with the manure, and ma.r  infect cattle or hogs that arc allowed  to pick over the dung heap. The practice of having hogs and cattle together  in the same yard is sure to result in  thc infection of the hogs, if any oi  thc cattle are affected. The germs  in the manure come from fhe matter  that is coughed up and swallowed, and  in some cases from tuberculosis in tin-  bowels themselves. Manure containing tubercle germs may easily infect  the milk. Particles of dried manure  may fall into the milk pail from the  skin of a dirty cow, or'be accidentally  flicked off from the tail and fall int������������������  the milk. Straining the milk after;  wards only removes the larger panicles. The smaller ones, including tbe  germs, remain in the milk.  When the udder is tuberculous, tn*  milk contains,, the germs in vast numbers. Such milk may look and taste  perfectly good, bul, readily transmit*  tho disease to young animals. ��������������������������� It is  very dangerous to children.- Hogs and  calves are very readily infected by it.  Fish,  of  hoof,  0')  .30  CHAPTER Vill  Sunday  That first dollar saved was the germ  of a now idea.  It is a further confession of a middle-class mind that in coming down  hore I had not looked forward beyond  the immediate present. With the horror of that last week still on me I  had considered only the opportunity  I had for earning a livelihood. To be  sure I had seen no reason why an intelligent man should not in time be  advanced to foreman, and why he  should not then be able to save enough  to ward off the poorhouse before old  age came on, But now���������������������������with the first  dollar tucked away in the ginger jar���������������������������  I felt within me the stirring of a now  ambition, and ambition born of this  quick young country into which I h*id  plunged. Why. in time, should I- not  become tho employer? Why-should I  not take the initiative in some of these  progressive enterprises? Why should  I not learn this business of contracting and building and some da^y contract and hulld for myself? With that  first dollar saved 1 was already at  heart   a  capitalist. s  1   said   nothing of this  to  Ruth.   For  WILD DOGS OF AFRICA  The wild dog of East Africa stands  25 to 27 inches high, with good galloping quarters, rather long but very  museular-==]egsf=wit-h=slrong-=feot=and-  toes; the ears are very larg-> and erect,  beautifully formed to catch the faintest  sound wlien working in thick coverts.  Added to this he has a very keen sense  of smell.  The jaws are wonderfully strong,  with beautiful white teeth; thoy can  break bones which few animals except  the hyena could crack, and the  strength of the hitter's jaws and teeth  aro .proverbial.  Their mode of hunting is very clever.  Having found and started a buck, somo  of the fleetest dogs gallop forward  ahead of the main pack keeping on  either side to prevent the buck turning and doubling back. As these dogs  tiro they fall back, and others take  up the running in their place. When  the quarry tires the pack closes in and  all their energy is devoted to killing  by tearing out the viscera.  Some writers say the pack- takes the  form of a crescent when running their  prey, gradually closing in as the game  tires. All agree that the short timo  taken in running down a buck is simply marvellous, a quarter of an hour  being the estimated time in hunting,  killing and consuming the buck under  ordinary circumstances.  The wild dog is not at all fastidious  as to what food he shall take, but he  levies toll on any sort'of buck or antelope he finds handy. Gnu, sable and  waterbuck are said to be his favorite food, but he has been known to  pull down a buffalo when pressed for  food. Needless to say, when attacking a powerful animal like this somo  of the dogs meet with a sudden death,  and those are consumed by the surviving members. They ahvays seem ravenous for food and their appetites  nearly insatiable. Thore does not  seom to be any record of their having  attacked a white man.  The Capo hunting dog Is sometime.*  called the hyena dng on account of hi?  likeness to tho hyena. The likeness,  however, Is only superficial, and the  fact   that  he runs down  and  kills his  COST OF-DIRTY EGGS  While there are a few egg producers -  who take the best care of their product.-  the  average-farmer ��������������������������� considers  the  egg.  produced on the farm a by-product.'and  makes   very   little   provision rfor   their..-  care asi te from-   gathering    them.-. A  large loss is caused by dirty- eggs, the  number being enormous, and according  to the estimate of Secretary Wilson, of  the  Department    of ,  Agriculture,  this  money loss to the farmers in the Uuited  States  amounting  to ..about  $5,00U.0O0  annually,  This loss is very largely brought  about by not gathering the" eggs oftoii  enough. ]n wet weather more dirt,**  eggs arc found than at any other time.  This is caused by the fact that the hcu'_  feet are often covered with mud'or  other filth, and in going on the nest  to lay she soils the "eggs already in the  nest.  An insufficient number of nests ie  often the cause of many of the dirty  eggs found. Eggs are laid on the-  grouiid and around thc hay and straw  racks, and becoming strained, are classed  as "dirties." Again, when too man.**  eggs aro allowed to remain in "a nest,  some arc broken, and many of the  others become smeared with broken  yolks. This condition is oftoii brought  about by allowing the broody hens t������������������  use thc same nests with tlio layers. On  a farm where one nest for every four  hens i"s~pr6"vitletlra^nl=th"c^"ire^t"s"ar"e=kopt==  clean and well bedded, it is found that  very few dirty eggs are produced.  After gathering thc eggs, care should  be taken not to put them where they  will become heated, or near oil, onions,  or other vegetables, as they readily ab  sorb odors.  Although dirty eggs may be perfeetlv  fresh, they invariably soil as "hot-  onds," and when but a fow dirty eggf  arc. mixed, with an otherwise fresh,  clean lot, they materially decrease"the  price of thc clean eggs.  MARRIAGE  Marriage is interesting from two  standpoints, that of companionship and  that of its service to Lhc race in the  kind of children likely to be its product. Mental companionship, such as  that of the Brownings, thc Pennells, and  a few well-known cases, is interesting  because it is so rare and so wonderful  a blessing when it comes that one can  hardly think of any ills that could  counterbalance it. But the romances  one reads rarely lead thc reader to believe for a moment in tlie post-martial  companionships. Marriage of particularly fine, robust, and able people is interesting, because one can think of it  as the bridge to superman, to higher  living and finer thinking, but marriage  as mere moment, of personal aatisfac-'  tion is less conclusive than our romance-makers imagine. A quarter of a  century ago George Eliot pointed out  that marriage was no more than a perilous beginning of existence, and that an  active mind would never accept it as  conclusive ITow exactly to the point  was the remark of tho little baby girl  who always received the end''of the  fairy tale���������������������������"Then the heroine married  the prince"���������������������������with an outburst of grief  and tho query, "Why did not her go  home to her own muwer and stay  quiet?"

NEW USE FOR TOMATO SEED  Tho seeds of many plants have been  found to be valuable, owing to various  grades of oil which they contain. Even  weeds that are otherwise worthless  produce seeds that contain rich oils,  valuable in many ways. Experts are  continually searching"the world over  for new and valuable products along  thia line, but it remained for an Italian chemist to discover one of the most  valuable oils for the manufacture of  *ne grades of varnish. .     N  This oil has been found in tomato  aecd, formerly considered worthless. It  ���������������������������aed to be a problem to dispose of the  seed. In some instances it was burned, and in others carted away; but now  there is a plan on foot to grow tomatoes that produce large quantities of  aeod instead of thc varieties that axe  Almost seedless.  The new oil is declared to possess  ������������������ome very valuable qualities. The var-,  nish will dry more quickly and is free  from threads or cracks.

Since the war the  general had become a statistician; hc  was interested in lists and tabulations,  he enjoyed making due return for value  received, he liked to provide pensions,  to place old soldiers comfortably in  Soldiers' Homes. The war was long  past; his memory had begun to grow  dim: to his mind the lives of the  soldiers would be completed, rounded,  by this tribute, as his own would bo by  the statue of himself which should some  day rise upon this field. It was he who  had compiled tho lists for this last and  greatest roster; about it hc talked constantly.  Presently, as tho guests finished their  coffee, one of the lesser officers asked  thc man next him a question about a  charge, aud then Professor James asked  another, .and the war changed suddenly  from a thing of statistics and lists and  pensions to what it actually was, a  thing of horror, of infinite sacrifice, of  heroism. Men .-drilled and marched and  fought and suffered and prayed and  were slain. The faces of the raconteurs glo>ved, thc eager voices of the  questioners trembled. Once one of the  officers made an effort to draw Gunner  Criswell into speech, but Gunner Cris-  well was' shy. He sat with his arm  around the little boy, candle-light shining on his beautiful face, listening with  his whole soul. With Carolus it was  different. Carolus had several times to  be firmly intcrrupted-  ]n the morning Mrs. James took tho  blind man for a drive.   Thc air was as  fresh and clear as thc air of his own  mountains; the little boy sat on a stool  between his feet and rested his shoulder  against his knee.   Mrs. James knew the  field thoroughly; she made as plain as  possible its topography, the main lines,  the great charges, the open fields between the two ridges, the mighty rocks  of Devil's Den, the almost impenetrable  thickets.    To" Gunner Criswell, Gettysburg had been a little smoke-o.'erlaid  town'seen faintly, at the end of a.long  march,  its  recollection  dimmed  afterward by terrible physical    pain. " He  realized now, for thc first time the great  territory which the battle-lines inclosed,  hc understood the titanic grandeur of  the event of which he had been a part,  ho breathed in also the present and enduring    peace.      He  touched the  old  muzzle-loading  cannon;   the  little  boy  guided his hand to thc tiny tombstones  fn the- long lines of- graves of .the unknown; he stood"  where--. Lincoln-had  stood, weary,.heart-sick, despairing, yet  hopeful, in the fall of '63.        -     ',  -.Then, strangely for him, Gunner Criswell began to talk.    Something within  him-seemed ,to have    broken,    hidden  springs of feeling seemed to well tip in  his heart. Jt was thc,.talk of a man at  peace with himself, reconciled, happy,  conscious 'of his own value, sure of his  place in the scheme of  .things.     He  talked as he had never talked in his life  ���������������������������of his youth, of his hopes, of his wife,  of Ellen." It was almost more than Mrs.  James could endure. .  "It is coming back here that makes  you feel like this," she said, brokenly.  ''You realize how tremendous it"was,  and you know that you did your part  nnd that you haven't been forgotten,  that you wove important in a great  cause.''  "Yes, ma'am," answered Gunner  Criswell, in his old-fashioned way. "It  is that exactly."  Mrs. James had little respect for  rank as such. The great general, the  four lesser officers, her husband, her  two boys,- and herself were to drive to  tha���������������������������dcdication__that_.������������������iftcrngon _j_������������������d ___o  have seats on the platform, and thTEher  she took Private Criswell. Carolus De-  pew was not sorry to be relieved of the  care of the blind man; he had found  some old comrades and was crazy with  excitement.  "Tt is a good thing that she invited  vou," said Carolus, "because wo arc  going to march, just like wo used to,  and you couldn't very well."  -The dedication exorcises were not  long." "To" the blind "man there was thc  singing which stirred his heart, there  was the cool air in his face, there was  the touch of thc little boy's hand, there  was Mrs. James's voice in explanation  or description.  "There is thc Governor!" cried Mrs.  James. "He will pass right beside you,  Tliere is thc Secretary of War. You  can hear him talking to thc Governor  if you listen carefully. That deep voice  is his.   Can you hear?"  "Oh, yes," replied thc blind man,  happily.  Ho heard the speeches, he heard the  music, he could tell by tho wild shouting when the great enveloping flag  drifted to the ground and the monument stood wholly unveiled; he could  feci presently the vast crowd beginning  to depart. He stood quietly while the  great general near him laughed and  talked, receiving thc congratulations of  great men, presenting thc great men to  Mrs. James; ho heard other bursts of  cheering, other songs. He was infinitely  happy.  Then suddenly he felt a strauge hand  on his arm. The general was close to  him, was speaking to him; there was a  silence all about them. The general  turned him a little as he spoke toward  tho  great  bronze    tablets    with  their  record of the brave.  "You were in the army?" asked the  general.  "Yes, sir."  "In   what regiment?"  in .     _     .  <<r  1 was in Battery B, sir."  Then,"  said   the general,  "let us  find your name."  Mrs. James came forward to tho blind  man 's side The general wished to make  visible, actual, thc rewarding of the  soldier, and she was passionately thankful that it was upon this man that the  general's eye had fallen.  But Gunner Criswell, to her astonishment, held back. Then he said an extraordinary thing for one who hesitated  always to make his infirmity plain, and  for one who could read the raised letters, who had read them, here on this  very spot. He said again those three  words; only a little less dreadful thau  the other three terrible words, "I am  dead."  "Oh, sir," he cried, "1 cannot read!  I am blind!"  The general flung his arm across the  blind man's shoulder. He was a^tall  man also, and magnificently made.' It  gave one a thrill to sec them stand together.  '' 1 will read for you.''  "But, sir���������������������������" Still Gunner Criswell  hung back, his hand clutching the little  boy's, his beautiful, sightless eyes turned towards Mrs. James, as though he  would have given anything to save, her,  to save any of them, pain. "It is not  a question of reward, sir. . I would en-  .dure'it all again, gladly���������������������������everything. 1  don't count it, sir. But do not look for  my name. It is chance, accident, lt  might have happened to any one, sir.  It is not your fault. But my name has  been omitted."  and he declined to perform his allotted task in the workhouse. He has  for this offence been sentenced to the  lenient punishment of twenty-one days^  imprisonment.  These facts are altogether amazing.  It is incredible how any Board of  Guardians could consent to supply any  pauper, let alone one with such a character, wilh boots at seventeen shillings  and a guinea a pair.  Greatest Invention of Age  For Hoarseness, Weak Throat  Nothing So Far Discovered is so Beneficial to Public Speakers, Ministers,  Singers    and    Teachers    as  Catarrhozone  SETTING TRAPS  FOR^FUR  :The.art"of setting traps  is  a  long  one.   The trapper is *at work the whole  year,   observing  the  signs,    so,   that,  when the snow begins to fly, he knows  pretty well where to set.     If there is  snow,   the  problem  later on  is  much  simplified, for the tracks of the animals  will  be seen,   and you-know whether  or not there is any fur about.     But in  places where" there is-very little-snow  the trapper is puzzled to tell just where  the little beasts are- common.     In the  neighborhood where" he lives, it is no  difficult task to get a mink to visit a  trap, for he investigates everything on  his  journey  round  a lake  or .up and  down a stream."    -The'trouble is to get  him to attack the bait and put a',leg  in-the trap."- .A^mink-trap.is set anywhere  on  the shore where  it can be  concealed 'with   chaff,   leaves,, etc.,   a  piece of trout or 'muskrat-flesh  being*  stuck above.it on  the.end;of a stick  iii such a "manner that'the .mink will  step on the pan' of the trap in trying  to  reach it.      Of  course any  natural  path, over which the animal is obliged  fo pass,  like a lane" between two big  rocks or a big hollow log, is taken ad--  vantage of.     'Water-sets,    where   the  trap is placed slightly beneath the surface of the water,- "are'"much  used by  trappers, but in some districts, especially during the late autumn, the height  of thc water  changes so  often as  to  make  this  kind  of set almost valueless, as  one never knows whether he  will  find  his  trap  quite  out of -water  next day or too deep to bo efficacious.  CO-OPERATIVE FARMING IN ���������������������������  DENMARK  Denmark is a constitutional monarchy  with 15,2S9 square mile area, and a  population of 2,464,770. This famous  dairy country has the same latitude as  Northern Alberta, but being surrounded by the sea, its climate is similar to  that of Minnesota, and offers similar  opportunities to the farmers in so far  as thc soil is concerned, except that  corn is not grown, as it will not mature  sufficiently even for corn silage, as the  summers are short and hot. It is therefore evident that Canada should lend  itself just as much to co-operation as  does Denmark, and more so in the sense  that Canadian co-operative methods  would offer greater ground for development owing to the larger area of our  country, and our greater room for development.  HOBBIES - '  ,  The advice to acquire a hobbyAis  usual and has long been considcred^by  the writer as of no especial mometfti;  It seemed mereljr an idle desire, ori^thej:  part of others, that you should 'share1  their particular weakness, or the'result  of a ��������������������������� vague liking for easy ticketing."  But a hobby once acquired throws.light  on-many things. In the first place, it  is so humanizing. You know that there  is one subject on whieh you arc forever  doomed to be a bore and you under:  stand why other people who had got  themselves into this predicament hated  to see you going scot free." Now, however, you are as deeply embroiled as  any. You are neither able nor willing  to cure yourself and you have to talk  about it, no matter what the resistance  shown on the part of your family. You  feel the remarks rising in your throat,*  as they are A'oieed you sec the patient,  lenient\ expressions assumed by those  around you, and you talk because people with hobbies have to talk.  With a zealot's indifference "you endure the very indignities'you have seen  people in, a like condition undergo.  Thc morning post is scornfully said to  contain nothing when ou the top of the  pile is a seed, catalogue. There is a  disavowed but existing conspiracy, on  the part of, the household, to throw  away catalogues on the plea that they  thought they were just advertisements,  and you must have enough of the things  anyway. Wounded and embracing the  martyr's fate, of being7misunderstood;  you pore oyer a list of the new varieties  of dwarf'herbaeeous'plants and* through'  your veins creeps'a warm. glow, of  brotherhood. All-over the*world there  are'people reading lovingly things considered by others boresome.-��������������������������� It cannot  be denied-that sonic of the. things they*  read have every appearance' of being  very boresome indeed; but'each happy  hq?)by-owner knows that he at.least is  quivering with, interest. You see to  your perturbation' that a~ plant you  thought was two feet high is given iu  thc catalogue as .three, which' means-you  will have to plant it in back of the one  yon intended planting it in front-of,  thus bringing it against a clashing  color; on the other hand, will it not be  safe" to plant it where you intended,  remembering that your garden is near  a city and that that particular catalogue gives its heights rather high sometimes?

This idle scoundrel appears to have  been living for years in a state of  comparative luxury at the expense of  the ratepayers of Lincoln. Three years  ago, he asked to be supplied with a  pair of boots. He was specially measured for a pair, costing seventeen  shillings! N  After this unjustifiably lavish >.ex-  pe"nditurerth"e"ingrate refused "lo" wear  them. Ultimately, however, he graciously consented to reconsider his decision.  In 1910 these boots were worn out,  and' thc pauper was again measured  for a pair, costing seventeen shillings  as before. They were a perfect fit,  but again he refused to wear them!  Worse, however, follows.  Shortly afterwards, the fellow was  committed by thc Recorder as an incorrigible rogue, as he undoubtedly is.  Upon his discharge, hc was provided  with a pair of boots at a cost of  twenty-one  shillings!  Two days later he returned to thc  workhouse, without the boots, which  he, had either pawned or sold.  One would have thought that after  so much experience of the man's  worthlcssness, the Guardians would  have determined to let him go barefooted. But, no, they had still another pair, of the same quality, made  for him.      These he refused  to wear,  It Will Cure a Cold.���������������������������Colds are the  commonest ailments of mankind and  if neglected may lead to serious conditions. Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil will  relieve the bronchial passages of inflammation speedily and thoroughly  and will strengthen them against subsequent attack. And as it eases the  inflammation it will stop the cough  because it allays all irritation in the  throat.   Try It and prove it.  Because of its strengthening influence upon the vocal cords, Catarrhozone cannot be too highly recommended as a wonderful voice improver. It almost instantly removes huski-  ness or hoarseness, thus insuring clearness and brilliancy of tone. Catarrhozone keeps thc mucous surfaces in  perfect condition, and its regular use  absolutely prevents colds and throat  irritation, thereby removing the singer's greatest source of anxiety���������������������������unfitness of voice. The most eminent speakers and prima donnas are seldom  without Catarrhozone, and credit in no  small degree their uniform strength  and brilliancy of tone to its influence.

"No doubt there is a place for the  ordinary hand pump, barrel sprayers  ancl other styles of small capacity,  but to try to spray ten, twenty "or  more acres of orchard with one of  these hand devices is actually like  the man who tries to reap a twenty-  acre crop with.a hand sickle, or like  the man who tried to raise a large  acreage of corn with a hand hoe.  "What wc must have for big work-  is big implements, and spraying ten  acres or more of orchard thoroughly  is a big job, and needs a machine of  great capacity and sufficient power.  The man who tries to spray a large  orchard with a poor sprayer doesn't  make any money at it. .. Every dollar  saved in the price of cfiicient eauip-  menl, is lost ton, twenty or one hundred-fold  in the crop."

During  this period   there is  the  expense   of  caring   for   the   place  and  one's living in addition.    Those, who  go into the orchard business without  sufficient  funds   fo   meet   these   two  expenses  until   their  orchard   comes  into bearing must either earn something outside or grow something between  the  trees.     Strawberries  and  various kinds of vegetables are frequently set between   the  tree  rows,  but'when this is done sullicient space  should  be  left  on   each  side of the,  tree rows to allow a good, thorough  cultivation of the trees.  /I'here are many ways in which the  fruit grower who has not the means  to carry him through until his orchard comes into bearing can earn  enough money fo get along nicely.

An English View of; the Cause of
Bitter Pit or-Br6wn Spot in Apples
. Bitter Pit or^ Brown Spot in ap-
has been observable in apples imported from Canada, the U. S., Australia, New Zealand, and South Af-
rica. It is recognized by the presence of brown pock-mark-like, depressions in*the skin in the upper
or high half of the fruit and also as
small,brown patches in the flesh.
.These.spots are the result of.the collapse .of .-.a -number -ot'-cells- which
have become discolored and more or
less dry. They are not always cvi-
dent'etxernally; apples which appear
to bo quite sound, on being cut open
reveal the presence of the disease in
the flesh itself.
Various suggestions have been
made as to the cause/bf this defect.
Microscopical examination and
chemical tests have failed to reveal
the presence of any fungus or evidence of any insect trouble. The
injury is said to occur before the
ripening of the fruit: It cannot be
attributed to any effects of soil or
atmospheric conditions, and although there appeared to be good
reasons for'suspecting that the use
of a certain kind of stock affected
the fruit in this peculiar-way, experience and observation have led to the
conclusion that this could not be the
Bitter Pit was first noticed in 1891
in apples grown in the United States,
and in the following year it was observed in New South Wales. In 1892
it occurred on certain apples grown
in Germany, but it was not until
1906 that its occurrence was reported in England.    *-
In that year it appeared in Worcestershire, and was attributed to
an unusually dry summer. This year
various kinds of apples in different
parts of this country have been af-f
ing Bitter Pit were to be seen among
tlie apples exhibited at the Horticultural Fruit Show held in Vincent
Square about a fortnight ago. We
have also received examples from
several correspondents, and in every
case the malady is identical with
what has been observed in colonial-
grown fruit.
Mr. .J. B. Pole Evans, j)lant
pathologist to the Transvaal Depart-
menl���������of^Agr_cuIturer~has~ published
in bulletin No. 1, 1909, particulars
of this disease. Prom this we learn
that Bitter Pit is now commonly
found in apples grown in Canada,
the U. S., Mexico, Australia, New
Zealand, Tasmania ancl Europe, and
that occasionally it occurs in apples
grown in England and Madeira.
In South Africa it is common
wherever apples are grown, and although some varieties are worse
than others, all appear to be more or
less liable to it. It varies in different years; thus in Cape Colony in
1906 and 1907 between 40 and 50
per cent, of the apples were affected,
whilst in 1908 only from 5' to 10 per
cent, were affected,' the large sappy
varieties being most liable.
Experts are of opinion that Bitter
Pit results from the bursting and
consequent -breaking down of certain cells of the flesh of the apple,
due to excessive transpiration during
the day, followed by a sudden check
during the night, when root action
is still vigorous, owing to extra
warmth in the soil. Under these
circumstances water accumulation
takes place to such an etxent in the
cells that"an actual bursting may
occur. This is attributed to the fact
that the apple, being a native of
temperate regions, is unable to bear
temperatures    and    conditions    ap
proximating to those- of tropical
countries.'-^ This yiew-is supported
by-.the. behavior'of many of our English apples and other fruits when in-,
troduced into countries where climatic conditions are less temperate
-.th an=ou r s ,=a^=d i ffi cu 1 ty^=w h i ch=^h as=
been largely overcome in America by
the raising in that country of varieties better adapted to the conditions there. To some extent this
has also been done in Australia, Tasmania, and' New Zealand, and no
doubt the trouble will be overcome
in the same way in South Africa.
It is well known that home-raised
seedlings of all kinds'of plants are
more adaptive than those obtained
from- other countries.'���������With- regard
to the occurrence of Bitter Pit in
apples in this country, the fact that
it is prevalent this year supports the
view that it is due to excessive heat.
It has not been known to affect apples grown this year under glass,**
where the conditions were to a large
extent under control. By the use of
shading . in extremely sunny, hot
weather, it might ��������� be possible to
prove how far sunshine is to blame
for the appearance of Bitter Pit.
When ever the conditions are unfavorable to healthy growth' in
plants, the effect is shown in* some
part or other; either the leaves become discolored or wilted, or the
flowers are aborted or infertile, or
the fruits may be prevented from
forming, or their size, color, flavor
affected; sometimes the deleterious
effects are shown in the failure cf
the seeds. In the case of the 'apple,
it would appear that the injury
caused by an excess of sunshine is
evident only in the rupture of cells
in the fruit. English apple growers
have little cause to fear that Bitter
Pit will become another addition to
the already numerous troubles with
which apples are afflicted. The year
we have passed through has been
exceptional with respect to drouth,
heat, and sunshine, and we are not
likely to experience another of the
same character for many years to
come.���������From The Field, an English

Califorir'ans are recognized as tbe
world's greatest ancl most successful
boosters. The tourist crop is one of
California's richest harvests. It is
never a failure. It does not require'
any particular kind of soil to "raise"
this crop, but it does require a particularly wise scheme of advertising.
And Californians are never found
short of funds to devote to this purpose.
The greatest advertising tour in
the interest of the Golden State that
has ever been undertaken will (start
September 15th, when. "California
on Wheels" will roll out of,Los Angeles. This is the expressive name
adopted for a special advertising and
boosting train which will carry the
call to-California to 65 leading cities
of North America, covering a distance of 9000' miles and reaching a
population of 50,000,000.
��������� .'Included in the train will be three
specially prepared advertising cars,
carrying elaborate bas-relief paintings'and maps of California's leading cities and-resorts, moving pictured showing the life of the "Golden
State1' at all seasons of the year, and'
a picked band of 50 musicians under
the leadership of Prof. E. H. Willey,
director of the Long Beach municipal band. v
Nothing approaching the scale or
the scope of this boosting trip ever
has been undertaken before in California, or in any other state for that
matter. * It will be carried put by an
association incorporated by the leading cities and commercial organizations of California and will be backed by capital sufficient to make it a
complete success and the' most perfectly equipped tour-of its kind yet

In those, regions,  however, tain i.- comparatively infrequent, and wheu it comes, it is so violent, und lor.g-continucd that no nni-  li'c.li.i would bo of much n.-.e. Hence  t!'.,- umbrella was originally employed  ns a mii.-hado. These fnn-sliaped  ji:>t-.'isols are depicted in Kgypt.inn in-  <>'ti{)tions as ancient a- tho year 1170  [���������������������������.('.  The modem nmbre.'la appear-a to be  ii'i imitation not of a single leaf, but.  nf a widely branching tree. The in-  \i-ntoi of the folding umbrella is unknown. A passage in Ihe Greek play  "Tbe Knights," written by Aristophanes in tho fifth century B.C., apparently refers to a folding parasol, and  sunshades of this chaiacter are iepre-  ���������������������������.enled on antique Greek vases. This  might seem to complete the story of  th-*-. development of the umbrella., bnt  that useful article has Since undergone  many changes and has been the sub-  led'of numerous laws ancl  ordinances.  The lloiuan ladies adopted the para-  -oi from the Greeks, as is shown by-  various passages in the works of Roman  writers. The .parasol wns usually carried by a slave. The stick was made  of bamboo, and the cover was variegated fabrics. The use of the parasol was not confined to women. 'She  poet Claudianus complains that the effeminate Roman youths of the period  (KC. 390), instead of carrying oil' Sabine virgins, carried sunshades.  Tlie first mention of the employment  of ihe umbrella as a protection against  rain oce.ins in ihe letters of Alcnin, a  highly educated Englishman., who wns  the tutor and friend of Charlemagne.  A letter addicssed to the Bishop of  ���������������������������ft'alsbury in the year SOO contains the  words: '"Olcuin sends the Bishop a  'roof-* to protect his venerable head  from the i.-iin.*"' Umbrellas were not  generally employed for this purpose until many centuries later.  In the middlevages the umbrella was  a mark of rank and honor. After the  vear, 117(3 a gorgeous umbrella was always carried before the Doge of Venice,  whether the sun shone or not. The  manuscript enronicle of the Council of  Constance (l'Jll-141S) contains a pictuie of the Pope's umbrella of state.  Tbe umbrella is depicted with a large  triangular piece cut away, but this  was done merely to show the head of  tho bearer and must not. be taken :is  representing   the  reality.  From the fact that Leonardo da Vinci  iu the year 1500 uses thc-word "tent.'-  in describing his newly invented parachute, it JBaevidcnt that the umbrella  wasthen unknown in"-Italy. In France  the umbrella, or parasol, was a rarity  and   an   object   of  ridicule  as  late  as  3508.  About, this time parasols began to  be used in Italy. The English traveller Thomas Coryate. in 1611, wrote that  the Italian nobility carried silken  ������������������r-j-eens, resembling small throne canopies, for protection against the sun.  The'parasol was carried even on horseback, thc stick being fastened to the  rider's leg. The idea found favor in  England and a parasol was carried on  the stage, in a play produced in rko  vear 16JG.  The parasol appears to have been  introduced into Italy from the East.  This inference is drawn from a passage in the description whieh thc  French engineer Salomon do Caus gives  in JG20 "of the fountains with whieh  he had adorned the park of Heidelberg  Castle. "Speaking of one of these fountains he says that the figure carries a  Himshade or ludian head covering, also  called a tiresol, from.which the water  flows.  Prom the way in which the English  philosopher Locke, in describing a visit  to_Fj*iUiC-CJ.nJ__iI_o_,_.s_lcaK_s_of the para  sols i-arried hy French ladies, it is cvi-  dent that, the parasol was still almost  unknown iu  England.  The description of Robinson's Crusoe's umbiella in Defoe's famous work,  which was published in 1710, probably  did much to make the umbrella popular,  as a protection .igniu.t both sun and  rain.  About this time rain umbrellas made  thei* first appearance in England in a  Miigt.lai-wa,., _by-being .rented .by .the.  hour to students at Oxford nnd Cain-  bridge. The uinbrella-cairying students  were laughed at. but not .otherwise  molested. Subsequently thc philanthropist .Itiua.s Ilanwcy strongly advocated the use of the umbrella and never  appeared in public without a large and  gailv colored umbrella, which he had  brought from ihe east. Uc attracted  crowds, and derisive epithets were  hurled at him from thc windows. Ifan-  wcy's force of character and imperturb-  abfo calm weie required to make tlie  umbrella popular. Others began to  follow his example, and. although his  umbrella was long caricatured in the  journals, the philanthropist, in his old  age, had the satisfaction of seeing many  umbrellas used in London by his follow townsmen.  In tlie ISth century, also, inventors  began to direct their attention to the  improvement of the umbrella. The  first rank in the production of umbrellas was soon taken by France, where  a guild of umbrella makers was found-  od'bv Louis XV., in opposition to thc  turners, who claimod the right to monopolize thc new industry. At this time  appeared the "broken" unbrella, the  stick of which was jointed, so that the  cover could be. inclined against slanting  mini all or sunshine, without holding  ��������������������������� he stick very obliquely, These umbrellas were sold in Paris in 1755 for  three or four dollars apiece.

In Germany, the manufacture of uni-  biellns was inaugurated in J75f> at Uur-  emberg. .Soon, howevei, it was objected that carrying an umhrella advertised the bearer's inability to keep  a carriage.  Between 1791 and 1S-13 sixty French  patents were granted for improvements  in umbrellas. These devices included  umbrella-cnnes, telescoping umbrellas,  umbrellas combined with opera-glasses  and writing implements, and even the  automatic umbrella, which opeus when  a button is pressed and which is regarded as a novelty today. ln 177G  the Abbe P.ertholon de St. Lazarc invented an umbrella provided with a  lightning rod, for use in thunder  storms, The stick contained a pointed metal rod which could be taken out  and screwed on the top of the opened  umbrella. The earth connection was  made by moans of a long piece of gilt  cord, which trailed on the ground and  terminated in a metal ball. The ball  aud cord were carried in tho pocket  when not in use.  "When the invention of the air -balloon revived interest in tho parachute,  the first experiments were made with  ordinary umbrellas. Tn 17S.3 the physicist Lo Monnaud accomplished thc first  successful descent, from the top of a  tree, with two umbrellas, and in 1797  Gamerin descended from a balloon with  the aid  of one immense umbrella.  Even in the D8th century the umbrella had many opponents and formed  a favorite subject of caricatures, in  which it served as a mark of old-foggy-  ism and stupidity. The absent-minded  German professor who is always forgetting hi? umbrella has become a classical  comic character, but an honorable ouo.  for a man of science should be occupied with things more important thau  umbrellas.  For years Mother Graves' Worm Exterminator has ranked as the most effective preparation manufactured, and  it always maintains its reputation.  EDUCATIONOL     WORK     OF     THE  JAPANESE IN MANCHURIA  Superficial observers in the.Far East,  or observers who see things oj.it of due  proportion, frequently call attention to  the rapid progress made by the Japanese in military science and the industrial arts, and contrast it with what  is.,"assumed to be their backwardness  in morality and religion, and their alleged indifference to education.,"that  does not, serve a selfish practical" purpose. 7 "The.-"Japanese,;-,_ it" is said,  "have borrowed our science and our  machinery, "and'have taken from us the  knowledge and -the -methods that seemed most likely to increase 'their wealth  and power; but they have paid little  attention- to the moral bases of Occidental character. They have apparently accepted our civilization, but they  have accepted merely its mechanism,  uot its ideals;,,; Foreigners who have  had an opportunity to read the current  literature, of Japan, to study its penal  institutions, or to become familiar with  the text-books used iu the teaching  of morals in its public schools do not  need to be told that such statements  are based on imperfect knowledge of  the facts and insufficient acquaintance  with Japauese character. " There is,  however, a large class of readers who  aro compelled to get their information  concerning things Japanese from _ second-hand sources, and who are liable  to bo misled by plausible assertions  confidently made and often repeated.  Such readers will find a certain sugges-  tivencss, at least, in the latest reports  of Japanese educational and religious  work in Manchuria. The South Man-  churia Railway���������������������������a pur^ly_Japancscjor-_  po rat ion���������������������������has "adopt e(Ft"he science, fntt=-  chincry, and methods of the West, and  has made them so profitable that it can  afford to pay good dividends on its  stock, while the Russian continuation  of the same railway iu northen -Manchuria i.s still nin at a Joss. The Japanese company, however, in ils money-  making application of Western methods  has not wholly lost sight of Western  ideals. Two or I luce years ago it bo-  .gan_.tho. establishment,.of. a .chain of  railway clubs, modeled'after the Voting  Men's" Christian Associations of the  West, and dilToiing from the latter  nuly in the substitution of general  moral training for definite religious  instruction in its lecture-rooms and  classes. This chain of clubs now covers  the entire lino of the railway, and  gives recreation and moral education  to practically the whole force of employees. A "regular corps of teachers  is employed, and additional instructors  are brought over from Japan to give  lectures on special topics. The railway company pays all expenses, and  the" president, vice-president, and a  number of directors recently visited  all thc clubs���������������������������even the smallest of  them���������������������������and stimulated the interest and  activity of thc members by means of  addresses and personal talk. The general manager of this chain of clubs,  Mr. S. Ofsuka, is a Christian, convert,  and was formerly one of the national  secretaries of the Young Men 's Chris-  lian Association of Japan. All of his  associates are also members of Christian churches, although they arc not  exported to carry on a Christian propaganda in "the railway clubs. In the  latter, as in the public schools of  Japan', moral instruction is based on  the observed results of human experience, not on the dogmas of any system  of theology,  HUMAN ENDURANCE  What is the limit of human endurance? Judging by some recent per-  formanceH, particularly in the world  of sport and athletics..'it would almost  coeni that thore is no limit.    Take tho  ease, for instance, of Vedrines ��������������������������� in the  recent air race. This plucky aviator  confesses that he only had three hours'  sleep during the whole of that wonderful flight over' ono thousand miles  round; Great Britain. When one remembers that for an aviator there ar?  no'"moments of repose, that he must b=3  ever on the alert, every faculty of  mind and body strained to tho uttermost, it is not surprising that at times  both Vedrines and Beaumont .were ii;  ���������������������������i state perilously near to nervous exhaustion.  Perhaps; however, one of thc most  striking feats of human endurance was  that of Mr. Tom Burrows, the .dub-  swinging chanipiou of Great Britain,  who, by whirling his clubs for foriy-  six hours without a moment's respit-j,  broke all records. He reminds us of  Arthur Lancaster, a young Brix-.on man,  who, two years ago", achieved athletic  fame by swinging a black sin P, Vs. hammer for twelve consecutive bonis, and  afterwards added to his laurels by beating all British records i'or ba'.'-punch-  fifteen hours continuonsh', at the average rate of 145 punches a minute. Oe-  ���������������������������"asiom-.'iy he would go uwiu' on a l.ipf.t  of TfjO and 200 a minute, anil su powerful was his fist-work that t'-i.*2;*< tiim.s  hc brul e tho ropi2 of the hill and had  to tr.u. his attention to one kept ju  reserve.  It is not so long ago that two Frenchmen walked round a billiard table in  Paris for twenty-four consecutive hours  playing game after 'game, and covered  a distance of sixty miles: while a band  of change ringers 'rang the bells of St.  Martin's, Birmingham, for eight hours  without a  second's- pause.   -  Then there was the Polish lady-who  performed.the stupendous feat of dancing for * thirty-four hours. It is not  suggested, of course, that'.she danced  for-this time without a rest; the. intervals, however, were only short, and  she did not go to bed'during tho time.  Three years ago im Italian living in  Paris offered $200 to anyone who danced longer than himself'.- irive competitors entered the lists against him, but  ono by one they dropped out, whilst  the nimble Ttalian fantastically footed  it for fourteen hours, at ��������������������������� the rate of  eighteen waltzes an hour, without turning a hair. . -     .  . Among the--amazing pedestrian performances, that .of the well-known  American veteran athlete, Mr. Weston,  who last year completed 3,500 miles in  seventy-seven days, takes a very high  place. "Mr. Weston is a man of seventy-two years of age, and walked for  thirteen consecutive weeks at an 'aver--  age rate of 270 miles per week, or forty-  fiye miles each walking dav. It does  not equal, so far as the rate of going  is concerned, the scorching of .George  Allen, who walked in 1904 from Land's  End to John o' Groats, nearly 1,000  miles, in.seventeen days. Alleu's best  day accounted for eighty-two, and a  half _'miles, aud his average "for the  whole journey "was fifty-eight miles.a  day. .But' Allen .was about., half the  age of Weston, who was, walking before admiring crowds in England before  Allen was born.'-  ��������������������������� Turning to other remarkable. examples "of hunian'enduranee, "it might be  mentioned that the Duke of Wellington  was able to go for days with no sleep.  He once remarked that a few minutes'  dozing on the back of his horse was all  he required. And there is Edison, who  in his earlier days,' when working at  his great inventions, has been- known  to go five,days and five nights without  any *'proper sleep, Forty winks in a  chair in bis workshop was all that he  required to keep his brain alive, and,  being deaf, hc was able to sleep anywhere, even in a boiler factory.  BELIEVE IN THE BOY  . Thirty-years ago a man put his hand  on the shoulder of a seventeen-year-old  boy and said: "Boy, I believe in you.  You've got it in you to make good."  The boy's father had just passed away;  things wore pretty cold and confused  to the boy's mind,'but that evening af-'  _ter=J.t is=o lii eeJo Q.y=rlu Ues^wero-over���������������������������h o-  went home with a lighter heart. Somebody believed in him and had told him  so! If was a single thing, one may say,  but isn't it, after all, the simple things  that ofttimes make tho greatest impression and carry the most lasting influence'/ That .boy is now one of the  most succcssfful men in thc country,  "and all.'-' as he said not long ago, "because that man gave me heart; gave me  courage; made, me feel that somebody  'bclicv'cd'-in- inc.- -From-that evening T  worked "like a nailer."  It is worth remembering. Many a  boy there is who needs just that hand  on'his shoulder and tho marvellous stimulant of "J believe in you." Youth  is apt to be quiet and ofttimes morose;  it thinks to itself and livos' within itself. Adolescence ofttimes makes a boy  silent: somehow he cannot reach expression, and all sorts of perverted notions  of fancied shortcomings and the attitude  of others' toward himself grow within  him. Ho gets-absorbed with the idea  that no one understands him; no ono believes in him. For thore is such a fearful gulf between the boy of immaturity  and the man of experience. The right  word of encouragement, of belief, of  confidence, spoken at the right time,  would have turned the scales for many  a, boy. And it can now. There are  just as many boys who want to be believed iu as ever there were,     And they  unger to be told so!     What they might  do and become if some man told them  Brockville Cure Reported!

Buildings that have not  been painted or on which the paint has worn off, are exposed one  d^y Jp the wet and the rain, the_ next day to the hot sun and so  on, until the unprotected wood twists and warps and cracks and  the rot starts. So a building that should be in good repair at the  end of 50 years, if it had been kept properly painted, goes to rack  and ruin in J 5 or 20.   And think how it looks.

Changing conditions have made it necessary for city  dealers either to buy finished horses  from country dealers who collect and  condition them, thus adding to their  cost thc profit of the middleman, or else  maintain a finishing school, where the  green ones can be got ready.

Not so with  Parmelee's Vegetable Pills. The pill  mass is so compounded that their  strength and effectiveness is preserved  and the pills can be carried anywhere  without fear of losing their potency.  This is a quality that few pills possess.  Some pills lose their power, but not  so with Parmelee's. They will maintain their freshness and potency for  a long time.  here and there, in farmers'" wagons, be  fore the family carriage or the doctor's  buggy iu some back country village,  or wherever the roving sharp-eyed  horse buyer can find them. They are  usually thin in flesh, rough of coat,  poorly shod, unused fo curb bits or bearing reins, and, iu short, country horses  with country ways.

Thoy must, feel like stepping and going, and then they must have thc  strength and endurance to do it and  keep on doing it. They must be in  full llcslr at the same time, and it must  be solid flesh, which can only bo put  on by generous feeding combined'with  plenty of slow work. The building up  of "condition" in this way is a tedious process at best, and in many cases  it takes two or three years or even  more to bring a high-bred harness horse  up to his best form and action. Dealers, of course, cannot give their horses  so much time, but it is often necessary  for them to spend six months on a good  green one.  Bitting or mouthing is likewise a slow  process in converting a horse from  light harness to work in heavy leather.  The change from snaflle to curb bit  must be made with extreme care or the  horse will develop into a puller, a  tongue loller, side-liner or borer, destroy his value for show purposes or  pleasure driving. To set his head  right, with nose and neck arched, and  to go cheerfully and gracefully, without tossing his head or fighting the  iron, are essential in a really high-  class horse, and to accomplish this  with some horses requires a high order  of talent in tho trainer.  Shoeing and balancing to increase  and perfect action call for equal skill  and knowledge and finally, the finishing process must "put ���������������������������manners on"  the horse until he will stand quietly,  back freely and ;is fearless of automobiles, electric and steam cars, and in  fact everything he is likely to meet in  city streets or country roads.  #        Vt        *  As a rule, the first winter is very  severe on thc young colt. this is due  to improper methods of weaning, or,  rather, to poor methods of caring for  the colt while suckling the dam. As  soon as the colt is old enough, it should  be encouraged to nibble at grain, preferably oatmeal. As a rule, he will  begin to munch in thc darn's grain box  at two or three weeks of age. At this  time the colt should be encouraged to  eat by mixing a little sugar with oatmeal or bran and feeding to the youngster. It is a good plan to arrange a  grain box for" the colt's convenience,  though some prefer to lower the dam's  grain box so the colt can cat from  the mother's supply. ]'n this way the  colt may be taught to eat, so that when  taken from the dam at weaning time, he  will not miss his mother, and may be  put on his winter ration without loss  in weight. "  In choosing the ration for the growing colt, it is important that much protein be supplied, as this constituent is  essential in thc formation of bone,  muscle, blood, nerve, hair and hoof. The  food should be palatable and easily digested. Such foods as oats, bran,  peas, linseed, and perhaps a little corn,  may constitute tho grain, while alfalfa,  clover or mixed hays, which should always be fed sweet, may constitute the  roughage. v  *    *    *  The brood niaro should be permitted  to take exercise by having the run of a  lot, and this is even moro important  than in the idle horse; but she should  not be allowed to travel over icy or  slippery ground. Iter quarters should  be more comfortable, a box stall prepared, aud it is of greater importance  than she bo not required to drink ice-  water, eat frosted, frozen, mouldy or  ergoted foods, as these are likely to  produce abortion. The mare in foal  should have more protein foods, such as  bran, peas and oil meals, as such foods  rich' in protein and mineral matter are  valuable for marcs carrying young foals.  A grain ration consisting of five parts  ground oats, two parts bran, two parts  corn meal, and one part linseed oil  meal, by weight, will be difficult to improve upon in most cases. This may  be fed iu quantities such as suggested  above. Jf the mare is constipative,  bran mash may be given occasionally.  On the other hand, if she is laxative,  it will be necessary to reduce the bran  and oil meal, particularly if clover or  alfalfa constitutes the roughage.  Through' the use of the proper foods,  the bowels should* be-kept in the proper condition. -If available, it is a  good plan to feed a few'carrots to the  mare in foal, as these have a good physical effect.

H.  Barker, of Glencairn, Ont.   He says:  "I would not have believed that any  remedy could cure so quickly, and at  the same time so effectively, as Zam-  Buk cured me.  "My face became covered with a  kind of: rash, which itched and irritated. This rash then turned to sores,  which discharged freely and began to  spread. 1 first tried one thing and  then another, but nothing seemed to  do me any good, and the eruption got  wor-.se and worse, until my face was  just covered with running sores.  "Apart from the pain (which was  very bad), my face was������������������such a terrible sight that I was not fit to go  out. This was my state /when some  one advised me to try Zam-Buk, I  got a supply, and, marvelous as it  may sound, within little undor a  month every sore on my face was  healed. I was so amazed that I have  told tho facts to several persons, and  I have no objection to your stating my  experience for the benefit of other  sufferers."  Zam-Buk is purely herbal in composition, ancl is the ideal balm for  babies and young children, for who.se  tender skin coarse ointments are so'  dangerous. Zam-Buk is a sure cure  for cold sores, chapped hands, frost  bite, blood-poison, varicose sores,  piles, scalp sores, ringworm, inflamed  patches, babies' eruptions and Chapped  places, cuts, burns, bruises and skin  injuries generally.

ENDERBY PRESS  AND WALKER'S  WEEKLY  it  \yt  w  in  h-  Cupid���������������������������Cons ultee  By Joe I-I. Ranson  T  Clements  office  of  Milton  come to be the rendezvous of  PHE  law  had  the bar of Marion during that  season of the year when the courts  were not in session, and when it was  either too late for hunting or too early  for fishing. For the bar of Marion  was for the most part still youthful,  and thero was a certain charm about  Clements' hospitality, free and easy  like the man himself, which made for  his own popularity and for the scarring of his furniture.,  I-Ie was the most recent addition to  the legal talent of the town, having appeared upon its streets two years before, hung out his shingle, put a desk  and some chairs into his office, and  forthwith received company,  It was not the habit of Marion to  ask questions. A man was presumed  to be a gentleman until he proved himself otherwise. Until such time, if he  were congenial, Marion accepted him,  took him in, threw open her doors to  him, as it were, and bade him welcome.  Tied to the outside world by only a  branch line of the Southern Pacific, the  town preserved, to a great extent, the  dignified, whole-souled hospitality of  ��������������������������� the'old-lime Soulh, entertaining tbe  .traveler" within its gales, bidding him  bide his lime and tarry to his pleasure.  So had it accepted Clements, and so  had he tarried. Educated, well set-up,  and good-looking, hc fell easily into  the life of the town, and as easily became a favorite among his own sex as  well as the other. An attraction, perhaps of more force with the latter,  lay in the paucity of.information concerning himself which he gave forth,  a kind of fascinating mystery in which  he wrapped himself elusively.  Marion was not used to mysteries,  and," as a rule, discouraged them as incompatible with harmony.- But politeness forbade the, pressing of inquiry,  and Clements was taken for granted  and the mystery forgotten.  When Grace Meredith returned to  -Marion from a two years' stay in Germany, Clements was established in the  - good graces of the town.  ��������������������������� "I have been wanting to see you,"  Grace greeted him upon their introduction; "for I've been hearing about you  a long time through correspondents. A  new" man is always of interest in  Marion, you know."  . For the first time in the knowledge  of the town Clements was 'Without  words.' He stood for a moment looking  at-'the--girl, mechanically1'taking" the  hand-jshe   -offered,     oblivious   to   the  - guests about him, forgetting all save  lhat he gazed into eyes that were frank  and large and beautiful.   Then he came  ' to himself with a start. _ _   - __.  As he felt the pressure of her hand,  he flushed, and stammered something  about being very happy or pleased or  other.! things equally . inane. I-Ie did  not know that she "had spoken. He.  heard himself ask for her- programme,  -and felt a vague, uncertain rage take  life within, him upon finding that he  could have but" one dance. _ .  .. During the-evening he followed her  furtively with his eyes until his dance  was reached, then lived through a rapture of happiness such as he had never  known. When he, left her he felt that  the world was harsh and unkind, and  he cherished a murderous hate for the  man who came lo claim the next number." . X  An exhibition of devotion, hitherto  unlhought of by the joyous, care-free,  heart-whole man followed.  He had won the heart of Marion by  his easy manners, his cleverness, his  point of view of the man of the world  who is worldly wise and free from the  lender emotions. And Marion smiled  knowingly, and gossiped with interest,  and allowed its aristocratic eyes to  wander on Sundays to the Meredith  pew.  The man himself changed. To the  eyes of Marion this change was obvious. It expressed itself in a reserve  so unusual in Clements as they had  known him, a quiet dignity so alien to  his light-heartedness of the past two  years, that the town wondered and  whispered  more  softly,  and  waited.  But there shall be no further intrusion into the sentiments of Clements, nor his actions, nor his thoughts,  nor the number of drinks he took, nor  the hours he tossed sleepless upon a  restless pillow. I-Ie did all the usual  things, and some of the unusual. We  will not again observe him until he  steps from the buggy of the fair Grace,  upon a sunny, balmy, throbbingly romantic Southern afternoon, and escorts  that lovely person  to  her  door.  "May 1 come in a moment?" he asked. "I have something lo-tell you."  * They went into the sitting-room, and  the girl walked across to a low divan  besiue the window and sat down. Then  sho turned her face to the man and  smiled up at him questioningly. For  a moment ho stood with his hand resting lightly upon a carved table which  stood in the alcove.  "I am going away," he said at length,  quite simply, as though in continuation  of a subject previously under discussion. He was voicing a decision reached in his own mind, a. decision with  which the girl was so closely connected  in the making of it that he,was momentarily surprised , at the change  which came over her face. It was sudden, .fleeting, like the passing of a  cloud across the face of thc sun, like  a shadow rippling in flight across the  meadows. And as they quiver with  sunlight after the momentary shadow,  so instantly her face brightened with  a smile.  "Not for long?" she asked.  He understood, with a start, that she  did not understand. , I-Ie hesitated  awkwardly, groping for the expression  of what" he had lo-say, conscious "that  the evolution' of his nature had been  purely, subjective, and that she-was  apart. _ As he realized this,-and knew,  lhat the'power^w~as "Iiis, 'even'now, to  retain unto himself his*'secret,"and by  this simple negative act of retention to  insure for-himself the continued ,enjoyment of his new-found happiness,  he -was tempted to recant, at' this  eleventh hour, the manhood welling up  from out his soul, and in thejface of  all to .cling to his bartered birthright.  . But this new manhood that had  taken life within him was stronger;  and as he stood looking down into ,the  girl's eyes, a revulsion of feeling swept  over him, strengthening him, and urging him to the consummation -of the  pari that destiny had allotted to him  in this scheme and drama of living.  "When a*man is aware of an obligation upon himself," he began,"still looking at-.the woman, "it is "his duty to  satisfy that obligation. His knowledge  of it .imposes upon him, irrespective of  coercion from without, a duty.    Is it  JMDUJ- D���������������������������VO U_J_ IK E_THIS-MUS IC ?.

She was  j known as the Mary Eliza, and she had  ' rather a dark name: so that, when the  ! Mary Eliza was lost in a storm with all  ��������������������������� on board, it was considered a good rid-  I dance, for there were whispers that the  ! craft had many a shady voyage lo her  ' record, and her skipper was supposed  ' to smuggle arms and ammunition  to  tho Cuban Insurgents, and tobacco and  rum Into the States.  "And when Ihey found the hulk  stranded on a needle reef, with her bow  pointing to the sky, and her hold gutted and awash, they read the name  Mary Eliza and shook their heads  knowingly, and the dally papers noted  that the schooner was lost with all  hands. And they were very nearly correct, for the crew was lost to a man,  and the skipper was drowned like a  rat in his bunk. He had been drunk  for two days.  "But there were two on board who  wero not seamen, and these two Destiny chose to save.    When the papers  nentioned the loss of the Mary Eliza,  .t was  noted  especially  that  the em-  ;ezzler Brubank was believed lo have  hipped on her for South America, and,  of course, they slopped over about his  eceiving swift    punishment    and  all  hat.  "The other of the two was an Eng-  ishr.ian named Straggs, who was  nown from Guatemala and Tegucigalpa all the way lo Caracas and Rio as a  otorious gambler. There was scarce-  y a spot on his body that was not  larked by a scar. The man Brubank  iad been a gentleman.  "These two  clung to an  overturned  .oat that somehow outlived the storm,  md,  after drifting two  days under a  corching,  blistering sun,  were picked  _p, as luck would have it, by an English  yacht,  and   landed  in  Vera  Cruz.  .Vhen. Brubank   left   Vera   Cruz  there  were  but two people in all  the. world  lhat   knew   he  was  alive,  a   thing   to  be  pursued and  punished for a crime  --himself and the Englishman Straggs.  "In a belt about his body his booty  /  had been rescued with him, and he  knew that he could enjoy his ill-gotten  gains without fear so long as Straggs  was quiet.  "Sitting in the lobby of a hotel in  Monterey, a month later, Brubank  picked up a paper published in thc  City of Mexico a week beforo, and almost immediately his eye fell upon the  account of an assassination. A man  had been found dead in an alley, with  a dirk sticking in his back; and the  item went on to say that at the morgue,  or whatever* they call it down there,  the man's body was found to be covered with a network of scars. Then Brubank knew that Straggs had received  .his last scar."  The course of hi.s narration was  marked by a breathless, palpitating silence. Only his voice, soft and melodious in tho shadowed room, broke the  silence of the afternoon. He look his  eyes from the girl, and was looking out  of the window, standing erect, his hand  lightly brushing the table.  The girl sat motionless, watching his  face, her breath coming laboriously,  her body rigid.  "After that," he1', resumed, without  looking at the girl, "Brubank wandered  widely, over many countries, except his  own. But one day, as he stood on the  cliffs at Tangier, looking out upon the  Atlantic Ocean, there carno to him a  terrible longing for the life of his own  land.  "He would not trust himself in the  East, though his memory was as dead  as the crew of the Mary Eliza, and he  landed al Galveston "at night. Then  he came into a community whero all  were kind, ancl life seemed good to  him, and he tarried." -  For a long time he stood quite motionless, looking out across the drop of  the lawn to the great grove of live-  oaks beyond. At.,last he turned to the  expectant girl and said quite simply:  "I had'to tell you. My name is Marvin Brubank."  The girl sat for what seemed an  hour, and was in reality three minutes,  regarding the confessed embezzler with  the impersonal scrutiny which she  might have accorded a recently- excavated Aztec idol or the latest thing  in germicidal bacteria. Any warmth in  her seemed to have retreated to the innermost recesses of her nature. "When  she spoke il was entirely without that  emotion which Clements had expected.  "Mr. Clements," she said coolly, "you  have told me all this without my asking it, acting upon the hypothesis that  I was in love with you, as you declare  that  you   ore wilh  me.   "In   lhe  first  place, you are simply maddened temporarily. r Your kind of man doesn't do  the sort of thing you say you are going  to do. You may think now you will,  but that is because you are still slightly insane. On cooler thought you  would get over this infatuation of  yours to fling yourself to a belated  justice."  She hesitated, turning to the window.  A man was coming into the long avenue.  "Your hypothesis was wrong," she  went on, without turning back to him,  "because 1 do not love you. I do not  mind telling you that I am going to be  married, though I have been keeping  if secret. My fiance is onetot tho most  famous of the younger school of detectives, and I have taken some interest  in "iiis work. I-Ie has been working on  your ease for two years. It has been  discouraging."  She shaded her eyes and looked care-,  fully at the figure coming up the long  avenuo.   Then she smiled.  "Yes," she said, turning once more  to Clements, "that is he. . Pray don't  hurry.   All the doors are guarded."  A step sounded on the front gallery.  The girl heard it, raised her head, and  listened.    Then she called-cheerily:'  "Right on-^in here, Dick! I've some  one to see you!".  , '���������������������������       -    .  RIVAL DISCOVERERS ,.  Jt is a curious fact that tliere are  usually at least two claimants for the  honor of discovering an important fact  in science. The history of discoveries  and inventions reveals* many instances  of this singular fact.      *     - -     .  In mathematics we have the German  Leibnitz disputing -with the English  Newton as to which of the two discovered- the method of fluxions. In  astronomy Adams, the ' Englishman,  shares with Leverrier, the Frenchman,  the honor of discovering the planet  Neptune. Morse, the American, had to  contend with an Englishman for the  reward of inventing the telegraph.  Englishmen give the credit of discovering the circulation of the blood to  William Harvey, an eminent London  physician of the seventeenth cantury.  This" discovery, which revolutionized  the practice of medicine, was .made  known by Harvey, it is said, in 1616  to his classes in surgery. .In 1628 he  published it to the world "in a" book  dedicated-to Charles i. of England.  . The Italians- ascribe this important  discovery  to Father',-Paul    Sarpi,    a  tory, medicine, and anatomy. In a  journal published in 16S-1, the NouvclleB  de la Republique des Lcttres, it is stated that Sarpi discovered the circulation  of the blood, but did not make it public. His reticence is supposed to have  been clue to his fear of the Inquisition,  whose hostility to scientific discoveries  was well known and with whom Sarpi  had had trouble on account of his efforts  in the direction of Church reform.  lie did, however, it is claimed, reveal  the secret to his physician, Aquapen-  dento, who had saved his life when  wounded by Hoinan assassins. The ph}'-  sician wrote a book on the subject based  on Sarpi's notes; but he also was fearful that the publication of such a novel  heresy would get hini into dillicultics  with the Inquisition, and he therefore  placed his manuscript in tho library of  St. Mark's.  Aquapondente afterward removed to  Padua, where hc was appointed professor of medicine. Among his students  was a young Englishman with whom,  the Italians say, the professor became  so. intimate that he revealed the secret.  This young Englishman, the story goes, .  was Harvey, who upon his return ,to  England, after the death of Sarpi in  1623, claimed the honor of making the  discovery. -     -  This plausible statement must, of  course, be received with a grain of salt;  but it furnishes another jllustration of-  the fact that a great discovery usually  calls up several rivals for the honor of  having made it. - ������������������������������������������������������ _  . -  A    ROAD-BUILDING" EXPERIMENT  STATION -"  The Road Board of Great Britain ia  about to establish a novel station for-;  testing different materials-and  methods of road construction in connection  with thc National Physical Laboratory  at Teddington.

EXTENSION OF FIRE LIMIT  It is generally conceded that if the  safety and   character   of Cliff street  are to be maintained the City Council  must   extend   the   fire   limit,    or in  some way regulate the building permits granted covering this particular  neighborhood.   It is not often that a  property owner will go so far in his  reach after   ducats   as to gather together the old barn and chicken house  which have housed cows, horses, hogs  and chickens three or four years, and  tack them one to the other in such a  way as to    make    them rentable for  people to    live   in.   Yet   this wc see  within a block and a half of the post-  otllce,  and    in   a    section where thc  people    who    are   really working to  advance   the    town's   interests    are  making    earnest   efforts   to beautify  their properties and raise the standi,  ard of the surroundings.   Cliff street  is the   main   business   street of,the  town.     If it is to be kept presentable  and safe as a business centre, it must  have a uniform   law   regulating the II  erections permitted on either side of  it.   Empty foundations which contain  nothing but   rock   piles,   old lumber  ancl  other    debris   and   filth,  should  be fenced in or   cleaned up and kept  clean.     It is no   credit to any town  to permit such   slovenliness, and especially when the town itself is doing  so much to make its business' streets i  presentable.  In every city will    be found an individual who by hook or crook gets  hold of a'   piece   of   property in the  heart   of   a    developing   section and  sits down   upon   it or goes to sleep  and awaits a buyer at a price higher  than anything offered in the particular neighborhood.    He does nothing  to improve   the   property ^0r develop  the section.   We knew of an instance  in one of the   large California cities.  The man was intensely religious. He  owned a corner that was worth anywhere   from   two   to   three hundred  thousand.   He wanted half a million.  It was in   a    conspicuous place, but  grew'  nothing-   but _ weeds.   . He was  approached by the local improvement  society;,and requested to clean it up,  and plant it into flowers.     His reply  was that he   was   satisfied; he found  it ' in    weeds   years    before; if    God  wanted it in flowers, He would have  made   the - weeds   flowers.'    Perhaps  the   same     would,   apply, elsewhere,  where foun'datioift have been laid and  they are waiting for God to erect the  buildings.  Thursday, April 11, 1912  .
