Considerable complaint is heard  owing to thc many early spring  flowers being taken from thc gardens in the dark of night, evidently  by somebody too indolent to plant  a posy bed and care for it.  The board of police commissioners  met on Tuesday evening, and gave  orders that the by-law against the  pasturing of stock in the streets and  against bicycle riding on the side  walks should be strictly enforced.  Jas. Bell's,black Percheron stallion  was shown in Enderby, this week and  attracted much attention. Such first  rank horses as this and Marcellus  Junior point to the best on foot in  horseflesh for Enderby and Mara district.  Mr. L.

He reports  a snowfall of 118-inches for the winter, some of which still remains.  P. H. Murphy has purchased the  property of Chas. rikeelcs, situated  in the Glenn Mary valley just west  of thc Elson place. Mr. Murphy has  developed a fruit valley on thc hill  overlooking his orchard on the low  land of the Elson property which he  believes will surpass anything now  planted in the district.  The first consignment of bodies recovered from the -vaters where the  Titanic, went down, reached Halifax  on Monday. There were 190, including'the bodies of John Jacob Astor,  C. M.

CHAPTER X.���������������������������(Continued)  Tho Emigrant Spirit  BoNXINUTON was a clerk with ;i  Ih'j. insurance company. He lived  four I louses below us on our  street. I suppose he was cumin.,' about  $1,M)U a year when he died. He  left live children and he never had  money enough even to insure in his  own company. Uc didn't leave a  cent. AVhen Helen 1-ionnington came  back from the grave it was to face  lhe problem of supporting unaided,  either by experience or relatives, live  children running from twelve to one  She was a .shy, retiring little body  who had sapped her strength in just  bringing the children into the world  and caring for them in the privacy ol'  her heme. .She had neither the temperament nor tho training to face the  world. Bul she bucked up to it. She  sold out of Lhe house what things she  could spare, secured cheap rooms on  the outskirts of thc neighborhood and  announced thai she would do sewing.  What it cost her to come back among  her old friends and clo that is a particularly choice type of agony that it  would be impossible for a tenement  widow-to appreciate. And this same  self-respect which both Helen's education and her environment forced her  to maintain, handicapped her in other  ways. You couldn't give Mrs. Bon-  nington scraps from your table; you  couldn't give her old clothes or old  shoes or money. It wasn't her fault  because this waa so; it wasn't your  fault.  When her children were sick she  couldn't send them oil to the public  wards of the hospitals. In the first  place half the hospitals .wouldn't take  them as charity patients simply because she maintained a certain dignity,  and in the second place the idea, by  education, was so repugnant to her  ��������������������������� that it never entered her head to try.  So she stayed at home and sewed from  daylight until she couldn't hold open  her eyes at night. That's where you  get your true "Song of the Shirt." She  not only sewed her fingers to the bone,  " but while doing it she suffered a. very  fine kind of torture wondering what  would happen to the five if she broke  down.     Asylums and homes and hos-  - pitals don't imply any great disgrace  to most of the U'nement dwellers, but  to a woman of that type they mean  Plell. God knows how she did it, but  she kept the five alive and clothed and  in" school-"until   the "boy- was    about  ���������������������������fifteen and went to work. When I  hear of "the lone widows of the tenements, who arc apt to be very .husky,  and who work out with no great mental struggle, and who have clothes and  - food given them and who set the ehil-  '  dren to work as soon as they are able  - to walk, f'feef like getting up in my  seat and telling about Helen Bonning-  ton���������������������������a plain middle-classer. And she  was no exception either.  I seem to have rammed off a bit here,  but this was only one of many contrasts which- 1 made in these years  which seemed to mc to be all in favor  of my new neighbors. The point is  that at the .bottom you not only see  advantages you didn't see before, but  you're in a position to use them. You  , aren't shackled by conventions; ��������������������������� you  aren't cramped by caste. The world  stands ready to help the under dog  but before it will lift a finger it wants  to see the dog stretched out on its  back with all four legs sticking up  in prayer. Of fho middle-class dog  who fights on and on, even after he's  wobbly and can't see, it doesn't seem to  take much notice.  ===^Hmvavcr^=IUittual3xL&d__LiK__wi 1 h_ a~f ew.  reforms of her own. She made it a  point lo go down and see young  Michele every day and watch that he  didn't get any more macaroni and  gravy. The youngster himself resented this Interference but the parents  look It in good pnrL Then in  time she ventured further and  suggested that tho baby would  be bettor off if tho windows were  washed to let in thc sunshine  "and" the floor Bcrubhcd a-bit. - Finally  she became bold enough to hint that  it might be well lo wash some of thc  bed clothing.  The" district nurse appreciated the  change, if Michele himsolf didn't and  I found that it wasn't long before Miss  Colver wan making use of this new  influence in the house. She made a  call on Ruth nnd discussed lier cases  with her until in (he end she made, of  her a sort of first assistant. This was  the beginning of a new field of activity  for Ruth which finally won for her the  name of Utile Mother. It was wonderful how quickly these people discovered the sweet qualities in Ruth  that had passed oil unnoticed in the  old  life.  It. made mc very proud.  CHAPTRR   XI  Now Opportunities  [ had found that I was badly handicapped in nil Intercourse with my  Italian fellow workers by the fact that  I know nothing of their language and  that they knew but little English. The  handicap did not lie so much In the  Tact lhat wc couldn't make ourselves  understood���������������������������wc could after a rough  fashion���������������������������as It did in the fact that this  made a barrier which kept our two  nationalities sharply defined. I was  always an American talking to an  Italian. The boss was always an  American talking to a Dago. This  seemed to mc a great disadvantage.  It ought to be just a foreman to his  man or one. man to another.  The  chance to acquire a new  lan  guage I thought had passed with my  high school days, bul down here everyone was learning English ami so I resolved to study Italian. I made a  .bargain with Giuseppe, the young  scxilptor, who was now a frequent visitor ui our llat, to teach mc Iiis language in return for Instruction in mine.  He agreed though lie had long been  inciting good instruction at the night  school. Uut lhe lad had found an appreciative friend in Kuth who not only  slneo'-eiy admired the work he was  doing but. who admired his enthusiasm  Mid his knowledge of art. 1 liked him  myself for he was dreaming bigger  things than I. To watch his thin  cheeks grow red and his big brow.i  eyes flash as he talked of some old  painting gave me a realization that  thi re was something else to be thought  of even down here than mere money  success,   lt was good for me.  The poor fellow was driven almost  mad by having to offer for sale snmc  of the casts which his master made  him carry. He would have liked to  sell only busts of Michael Angeio and  Dante and worthy reproductions of  the old masters.  "There are so many beautiful things,"  he used to exclaim excitedly in broken  English; "why should they want to  make anything that Is not beautiful?"  He sputtered time and time again  over the pity of gilding the vasts.  I'ou'd have thought it was a crime  which ought to be punished by hanging.  "Even Dante," he groaned one night,  "that wonderful, white sad face of  Dante covered all over with gilt!"  "It has to look like gold before an  American will buy it," I suggested.  "Yes," he nodded. "They would even  gild  the  Christ."  Ruth said she wanted to learn Italian with me, and so the three of us  used to get together every night right  after dinner. I bought a grammar at  a second-hand bookstore but we used  to spend most of our time in memorizing the common every day things a  man would be likely to use in ordinary conversation. Giuseppe would  say, "Ha Ella il mio cappello?"  And I would say,  "Si, Signore, ho il di Lei Cappello."  "Ha Ella il di Lei pane?"  "Si, Signore, ho il mio pane."  "Ha Ella il mio zucchero?"  "Si, Signore, ho il di Lei zucchero."  .There   wasn't   much   use   in   going  over such simple things in English-for  Giuseppe and so instead of this Ruth  would read aloud something from Tennyson.   After  explaining  to  him  just  what every new word meant, she would  let  him   read  aloud  to  her  the .same  passage.   He soon became very enthusiastic over  the"text itself and would  often stop her with the exclamation. .  "Ah, there is a study!"  Then he. would tell us just how  he  would model whatever the picture happened to he that he saw in his mind.  Jt was wonderful how clearly he saw  these pictures.   He could tell you even  down to how the folds of the women's  dresses should fall just as though  he  were actually looking at iiving people.  After a week or (two when we had  learned  some  of  the  simpler  phrases  Ruth and f used to practise them as  much as possible every day.   "We felt  quite  proud  whon "we  could  ask  one  another    for  "quel    libro"    or   "quell'  abito" or "il cotello" or "il cucchiuio."  I was surprised at how soon we were  able to carry on quite a long talk.  This new idea���������������������������that even though I  was approaching forty I wasn't loo old  to resume my studies���������������������������look root in  ^nolher-^direc-l-ionr^V-s^I^had^beeorne-  aecustomed to the daily physical exercise and no longer returned home  exhausted 1 fell, as though 1 had no  right to loaf through my evenings,  much as the privilege of spending them  with Ruth meant to me. My muscles  had become as hard and tireless as  those of a well-trained athlete so that  nt night I was as alert mentally as  in thc morning. Jt mado me feel laxy  lo sit around the houseafler an hours  lesson-In Italian and watch Ruth busy  with hor sewing and see the boy bending over his books. Stfll I couldn't  think of anything that was practicable  until I heard Giuseppe lalk one evening about the night school. 1 had  thought this was a sort of grammar  school with clay modelling thrown in  for amusement.  "No. Signore," he said. "You cun  loam anything there. And there is  another school where you can learn  other  things."  J went out that very evening and  found that the school he attended  taught among other subjects, bookkeeping and stenography���������������������������two things  which appealed to me strongly. But  in talking to fie principal he suggested  that before. I decided I look into the  night trade school which was run in  connection with a manual training  schoolc. I took his advice and  there I found so many things I wanted  that I didn't know what to choose. I  was amazed at the opportunity. A  man could learn here about any trade  he cared to take up. Both tools and  material were furnished him. And all  this was within ten minutes' walk of  the house. I could still have my early  evenings with Ruth and the boy even  on the three nights I would be in  school until a quarter past seven, spend  Iwo hours at learning my trade, and  get back to the house again before ten  l don't see how a man could ask for  anything better than this. Even then  l wouldn't be away from home as much  as I often was in my old life. There  were  many  dreary  stretches  towards  the end of my service with the United  Woollen when J didn't get home until  midnight. And the only extra pay Wc  .-���������������������������alaried men received for that was a  brighter hope for the job ahead. This  was always dangled before our eyes  by Morse as a bait when he wished  lo drive  us harder than   usual.  1 had my choice of a course of carpentry, bricklaying, sheet metal work,  plumbing, electricity, drawing and pattern draughting. The work covered  from one to three years and assured  a man at the end of this time of a  position among skilled workmen who  make in wages as much as many a  professional man. Not only this, but  a man wilh suih training as this and  with ambition could look forward without any great stretch of .imagination  to becoming a foreman in his trade  and eventually winning independence.  All this he could accomplish while  earning his daily wages as an apprentice or a common laborer.  The class in masonry seemed to be  more in line with my present plans  than any of the other subjects. It  ought to prove of value, I thought, to  a man in the general contracting business and certainly to a man who undertook the contracting of building  construction.' At any rate it was a  trade in which I was told there was  a steady demand for good men and at  which many men were earning from  three to five dollars a day. I must  admit that at first I didn't understand  how bricklaying could be taught for  I thought it merely a matter of practice but a glance at the outline of the  course showed me my error. It looked as complicated as many of the university courses. The work included  first the laying of a brick to line. A  man was given actual practice with  bricks and mortar under an expert  mason. From this a man was advanced, when he had acquired sufficient  skill, to the laying out of the American  bond; then the building of square piers  of different sizes; then the building of  square and pigeon-hole "corners, then  the laying out of brick footings, The  second year included rowlock .and  bonded segmental arches; blocking,  toothing, and corbeling; building and  bonding of vaulted walls; polygonal  and circular walls, piers and chimneys; fire-places and , flues. - The  third, year advanced a man to the  nice points of- the trade such as the  foreign bonds���������������������������Flemish, Dutch, Roman  and Old English; cutting and turning  of arches of all kinds���������������������������straight cambered, semi -circular,, ' three_ centred  elliptical, and many forms of Gothic  and Moorish arches: also brick panels  and cornices, t Finally it gave" practice  in the laying out of plans'and work  from these plans. Whatever time was  left was devoted lo speed .'n all these  things as far as it was consistent with  accurate ancl careful workmanship.  J enrolled at once and also entered  a class in architectural drawing which  was given  in connection wilh this.  I came back and told Ruth and  though of course she was afraid it  might b(j too hard work for me she  admitted lhat in the end it might save  me many months of still harder work.  If it hadn't been for the boy I think  she would hove liked to follow me  even in these studies. Whatever new  thing I took up, she wanted to take  up too. But as I told her, it was she  who was making ihe whole business  possible and that was enough for one  woman to do.  The school didn't open for a week  and during that time I saw something  of Rafferty. He, surprised me by coming��������������������������� nrotinri-ln-thP-fint-nnp-nig'h.���������������������������fnr._  what I couldn't imagine. I was glad  to see him but I suspected that he had  some purpose in making such an effort.  T introduced him to Ruth and we all  sat down in lhe kitchen and I told  him what 1 was planning to do this  winter and asked him why he didn't  join me. 1 was rather surprised that  the idea didn't appeal to him but I  soon found out that he had another  interest which took all his spare time.  This interest" was "nothing" "else" than'  politics. And Rafferty hadn't been  over here long enough yet to qualify  as a voter. In spite of this he was already on speaking terms with lhe state  representative from our district, the  local nldei'nian, and was an active  lieutenant of .Sweeney's���������������������������the ward  boss. At present he was interesting  himself In the candidacy of this same  Sweeney who was the Democratic machine candidate for Congress. Owing  to some local row he was in danger  of being knifed. Dan had come round  to make sure I was registered and to  swing me over if possible to the ranks  of the faithful.  The names of which he spoke so  familiarly meant nothing to me. I had  heard a. few of them from reading the  papers but I hadn't read a paper for  three months now and knew nothing  at all about the present campaign. As  a matter of fact I never voted except  for thc regular Republican candidate  for governor ancl thc regular Republican candidate for president. And 1  did that much only from habit. My  father had been a Republican and I  was a Republican after him and I felt  that in a general way this party stood  for honesty as against Tammanyism.  But with councillors, and senates and  aldermen, or even with congressmen  [ never bothered my head. Their election seemed to be all prearranged and  [.figured that one vote more or less  wouldn't make much difference. I  don't know as I evn thought that much  about It; I Ignored the whole matter.  What was true of me was true largely  of lhe other men in our old neighuor-  hood. l'olilius, except perhaps tor an  abstract 'discussion of the tariff, wa.-  not a vital issue with any of tis.  Now here 1 found an emigrant who  couldn't as yet qualify as a citizen  knowing all the local politicians by  their first names and spending his-  nights*' working for a candidate for  congress. Evidently my arrival down  here ha'd been noted by those keen  eyes which look after every single vote  as a miser does his pennies. A man  had been found who was at leasi a  .speaking acquaintance with me, and  plans already set on foot to round me  up.  1 was inclined at first to treat this  new developmnet as a joke. But as  Rafferty talked on he set me thinking.  1 didn't know anything about the  merits of the two present candidates  but was strongly prejudiced to believe  that the Democratic candidate, on general principles, was the. worst one.  However, quite apart from this, wasn't  Rafferty to-day a better citizen than  1? JSvcn admitting for the sake of  argument that Sweeney was a crook,  wasn't Rafferty who was trying his  humble best to gel him elected a better American than I who was willing  to sit down passively and allow him  to be elected?  (To   be  Continued.)  ONE  EGG  FOR  TEN  One of the persecuted Protestants,  just.after the massacre of St. Bartholomew, lived, we are told, for some time  on one egg a day which a hen laid  regularly in the hay near where he was  concealed. If he had been equally favored by an ostrich, he might have got  along on one egg a month. A good  idea of thc enormous size of an ostrich's egg is afforded by -the account  of a dinner that was once given to  some' visitors to an ostrich farm in  California:  "Ten of us?" said the host. "One  egg will be enough.',. Having given utterance to this' remark, he made his  way to the paddock and soon brought  to the house an ostrich egg. For an  hour it was boiled; and, though there  was some misgiving as to its being cooked, the shell was broken,  for the guests' curiosity could no longer be restrained, and a three-pound  hard-boiled egg was laid upon a plate.  Apart from its "size, there is nothing  peculiar about thc egg. The white had  the bluish tinge seen in the duck egg,  and the yolk was of the usual color.  It tasted as it looked, like a duck egg,  and had no flavor peculiar to itself.  But if was immense. As it takes  twenty-eight'hens' eggs to equal in  weight the ostrich egg when ,cooked,  it is evident that the host in the case  mentioned knew what he was about  in cooking only one egg .-for ten persons. There was sufficient and to  spare" and-.everybody was satisfied.  SHARKS  IN  THE  ARCTIC  Those old piscatorial , pirates;- the  sharks," often invade the Arctic, no  doiibt tempted' by the carcasses of the  whales or seals and walruses -left by  white men engaged in (heir pursuit.  Natives angling from'their skin canoes  in deep water occasionally catch a  sluggish shark which has engulfed the  bait, but there is no use pulling against  such a mountain of flesh and relying  upon sheer strength to bring him up;  and. this the native fisherman knows  and he overcomes the shark's inertia'  by sagacity.  "When the shark becomes irritated  and pulls briskly, the Jine is lowered  to appease him, but cautiously hauled  in again almost immediately, the shark  slowly rising to this strategic manipulation until he rests upon the surface  of the water, when ihe fisherman dexterously despatches him by a well-  directed thrust through the spinal  cord. Considering their well-known  voracity in warmer climes it seems  singular thai sharks do not of tenor attack the native fishermen in their little  skin-canoes.-hul���������������������������there.������������������s_=_ao ���������������������������UaJcno.wn.  instance of such attacks even on the  west, shore of Greenland, where they  are the most numerous and where the  natives catch large numbers of them���������������������������  from 10,000 to 20,000 a year.  The most usual method of catching  these fish can hardly be said to be fishing at all. Near a hole in the ice a  lighted torch is placed and two natives  stand on opposite sides of the hole  with sharp hand-hooks. Presently tho  shark* "sticks his" nose out, 'when "he" is  hooked and hauled on the ice.  THE ARAB SOLDIER  The Arab soldier has suddenly become a factor of importance in world  politics. J'^or years a source lo France  of trouble and expense, he may Lurn  out to be a good investment.  The first native recruits in Algeria  were of the Zouawn. tribe, which gave  its name lo the corps of Zouaves.  Other elements combined with the old  janizaries of the Algerian Deys to form  those units called Turkish companies.  Hence the popular designation "Tur-  cos" given to Algerian riflemen. These  rapidly increased in number. Jn 1S41  the Turkish-'companics became battalions of native shap-shooters and in  1855 regiments of Algerian riflemen.  An inherited taste for fighting, a  contempt for the work of me fellah and  laborer, above all the material advantages secured by regular military service, combine to attract the native.  During summer, when harvest and the  vintage season enable men to earn enough to live on, there only present  themselves for enlistment the dregs of  the population, But in winter, after  plowing and sowing, when the climate  makes its rigor felt in tent and cabin,  applicants swarm.  Commanding officers have left to  their discretion the choice of means to  promote enlistment and maintain regimental effectiveness. It does not do to  wait until would-be recruits make application; it is necessary to invite the  enrollment of the most promising ma  terial that is to be found in Algeria.  For this purpose there are organized  eiiher patrols made up of non-commissioned officers, with'the battalion  pipe, tambourine, and drum-players, or  detachments that travel through the  thickly populated districts. Since these  parties are composed of thc best men  in a regiment and carry excellent rations, the lure is great to the tribesman,  always appreciative of appearances and  good cheer.  Yet, although he can fight and march  Lo perfection, the native soldier does  not do so well in garrison or in ihe occupation of a conquered country. Thero  are other drawbacks, lie is useless  either as a clerk, a surveyor, an overseer of works, or a drill-master. Hence  it is necessary to suplemonl all native  troops with .European soldiers.  FORCING   PLANTS  BY  LIGHT  To force the growth of plants by the  use of artificial light is not a new idea,  but the system hitherto has been too  expensive in proportion to obtainable  results. Recently a Scotch lady engaged in horticulture discovered an  efficacious method of appying light for  this purpose. Arranging in winter  quarters her plants as she wishes  them "to grow, she supplies a lamp with  mercury vapor for fuel, find the seeds  germinate in less than half thc ordinary  time, while the vigor and intensity of  the color of the flowers is superior to  that of tjie product grown naturally.  Among curious phenomena which she  has noticed in connection with the action of this light is an infinite multiplication of the downy substance commonly found on stems. Those grown  in shadow have the stems relatively  bare. Very good practical results have  been obtained by this system.  DOES THE  SNAIL SEE?  The  physiology  and   habits  of   the  snail have long interested  naturalists,  and, among othor questions relative to  this   mollusc,   its-blindness   has  often  been  debated.. Certain specialists  are  inclined to believe that it does see, but     ' -  that its eyes are unable to bear "much  light,   adducing   as   an   argument   the -  known  fact -that  the  snail   is  passive  during the  night  but  during  the  day  looks, for  shady .places." Another' naturalist differs, and, after, having studied 2,400 cases, he thinks the distribution  of the snails  in  dark  enclosures  during the day is accidental, that the  snail  neither  flies  from  the  light  nor    - u  seeks the dark.   If a brilliant light be  brought in contact with its eyes at a  distance of from one'to two millimeters  no  reaction  is' noticed,  and thc  same  thing happens after putting it in  the  dark or if it be subjected to the rays,  of  electric  light.   The "snail  does  not"    \  seem  to  take account of obstacles of  any  kind and crawls only  from odor, -������������������������������������������������������-'  temperature, and from agitations'in the .. -7  air ("suchas that'produced by a" mouth"-"'   '"  organ,   for   instance),' or  disturbances "��������������������������� -"���������������������������  in-the  earth   around   it.

And  yet two pictures by Rubens have just  been found in second-hand shops in  Belgium. One of them is "The Holy  Trinity," and the other represents Lot  fleeing from Sodom, and they had been  sold for about twenty dollars each by  their original owner, in whose.family  thoy had been for generations.  Another remarkable discovery of a -  similar nature is that of a hitherto unknown room in the Palazzo Vecchio in  Florence, a room that is believed to be  the famous "scrittojo" or study of Cos-  imo Medici., It measures forty feet by  .twenty^feetT-=ancl=^has==a=1mligriificerit"=  ceiling with beams from wall to wall,  the whole being covered with paintings. The hall is surrounded with a  beautiful painted frieze, and on one of  the beams is the artist's name, "Franc-  Bach . . .," evidently Francesco  Bachiacca, who died in 1557, and who  is known to have liad a commission  from Duke Cosimo to execute just such  a work.

He says:  "Four years ago, 1 hud an accident.  I slipped in the station and fell on a  freight truck, sustaining a bad cut on  the front of my leg. 1 thought this  would heal, bul instead.of doing so it  developed into a bad ulcer and later  into a form of eczema which spread  very rapidly and also slaried on the  other leg. Both legs became so swollen  and sore that 1 could only go about my  work by having them bandaged. My  doctor said 1 must stop work and lay  up.  "After six months of this trouble I  consulted another doctor, but with no  better result. 1 tried all the salves,  liniments and lotions I heard of, bul  instead of getting better I got worse.  "This was my condition when I got  my first box of Zam-Buk. Greatly to  my delight that first box gave me relief. 1 continued to apply it to the  sores and day by day they got better.  I could see that at last 1 had got hold  of something which would cure me,  - and  in the end it did.  "It is now over a year since Zam-  Buk worked' a cure in my case, and  thererhas been no return of the eczema  or any trace of it."  Such is the nature of the great cures  which Zam-Buk is daily effecting.  Purely herbal in composition, this great  balm is a sure cure for all skin diseases, cold sores,, chapped hands, .frost  bite, ulcers, blood-poisoning, varicose  sores, piles, scalp sores, ringworm, inflamed patches, cuts, burns and bruises.

Inside, somewhere near  the closed door, lurked a rage-stricken  ten-foot mamba, one of the most fierce  and venomous snakes in the world;  a reptile which, when at bay, will attack a human being with incredible  fury. The man who had aroused Its  ire, in his efforts to avoid the snake,  had knocked over the light, leaving the  store in total darkness. Thc mamba,  however, still continued its wild attack, lashing out in all direction, while  the man crouched down, horror-stricken, expecting every moment to feel a  blow and the deadly fangs buried in  his  flesh.  Such was the awful predicament of  Mr. Austin Berry, who, a few years  ago, was running a small Kaffir store  in Natal, near a valley where a syndicate were prospecting for gold. One  evening, after telling his native boy  to close the store, he was sittingi outside Ins hut enjoying a smoke, when  suddenly the boy came running up,  shouting, "Baas, baas, inyoka umkulu,  kakulu!", ("Master, a big, a very big  snake!"), adding that it went into the  store just as he was about to close  the door.. Mr. Berry, from the boy's  description of the reptile, took it to  be a 'young python,- able to inflict a  severe bite, bul not venomous. Having received a fresh supply of goods,  which were lying about the store,  however, and which would give the  creature plenty" of hiding-places, Mr.  Berry thought it better to have it out  with the-brute there and then, otherwise it-would mean turning out the  store next' morning to look for it.  "Selecting a- good stick and taking a  lighted candle,"said Mr. Berry, when  relating his awful experience, "I went  to the store, slipped quietly in, and  closed the door behind me. Placing  the candle on the counter, I looked  around in the dim light. Hearing a  slight .noise at the end of the store,  I ������������������rept towards it, and presently, saw  the head of a snake appear j<ust above  a bale of blankets, its body being on  the other side. I struck at him; but  as he dodged, the blow I saw it was  not a python. . . 1  "Jumping   back, .1* tripped   and   fell  beheld ihu ciuibe of my fright lying  coiled up peacefully on some sacks. I  raised the weapon, pulled the trigger,  and the charge of No. G did its work.  1 lold the boys to bring the snake outside, and, getting a rule, measured the  mamba. finding him to be 10 feet 9  inches in length���������������������������lhe finest I have ever  seen.  "On examining the woodwork of thc  counter, we could see the marks of  the fangs whero the brute had struck  again and again in ils blind fury.  Whenever 1 go to kill a snake now 1  generally take a double-barrelled shotgun with me in case of accidents."  "     WORLD'S BEST BEGGARS  The Hon. Sydney Holland, chairman  of the rLondon Hospital, is often referred to as "The Prince of Beggars,"  for he is unequalled in the gentle art  of "raking in" subscriptions. "Once,"  he says, "1 met two Americans on a  motor-bus. 'Where are you going to?'  I asked them. 'To see thc Tower,' they  replied. 'But have you never seen the  Poplar Hospital?' I asked them, \yith  an air of astonishment. 'No,' they replied in equal wonderment. " 'Then  come with me.' After I had shown  them all the wards, I led them to.-a  collecting-box. They each put in a  sovereign.  " 'Sir,' said one, as he left, 'you have  all the. instincts of a swindler.' 'You  would get on very well outjfWest,' remarked the other, adding, as a parting  salute, 'if you didn't get shot in the  first week.' "  It is estimated that the expenditure  of the London Hospital is $500,000 a  year. Its regular income from land  investments, etc.,- is under $100,000.  The rest has to be made up from subscriptions and donations, and how. "the  Prince 'of Beggars" gets it goodness  knows. But he does, and it is one of  his proudest-boasts'that the London  Hospital has never yet closed 'a bed  once it has been opened.  Yet another'champion beggar is'Sir  Robert Perks. - who inaugurated and  completed the famous Twentieth Cen-  tur-y Fund, by which" the Methodis.ts  raised one million guineas "in celebration, of the dawn of the new century.

And  here .was I, shut up, through my own  stupidity,  with,a serpent  of this"de-  scription, which appeared, to me. to be  about twelve feet in length."    -  .   In'the hope of injuring it sufficiently   to  prevent  it from  springing,   Mr.  Berry, caught   up   some   weights   and  hurled  them-at it; ~ but" this only had  the effect "of still*-more incensing the  mamba, and it gathered itself together  to   attack   him * again.       Mr.    .Berry  promptly   jumped   up_ to   get   to. the  other side of the counter, and" in .his  hurry he upset the candle and sent it  flying, leaving the place in total darkness.     To his dismay, he found he had  no  matches  in   his  pocket,  while   the  -stock=of=matches-=in=lhe^store^was.=at=  the "other end with the snake barring  the road.  Just then he heard the snake, with a  loud hiss, hit the thin wooden lining  in front of the counter as it struck out  in his direction. Time after time the  mamba struck in all directions, hissing with rage meanwhile, the thud  of its blows sounding loud against the  wooden lining. The unfortunate man  could only.crouch there, helpless. in_lhc  darkness, lashing out wildly .with his  stick, in tho hope that a lucky blow  might reach tho reptile.  "Tho strain was getting too much  for my nerves," hc says, "nnd 1 foil like  screaming, when 1 heard the lillie door  between the counter and lhe front of  lhc store Ily back wilh a thud. Tho  snake, striking furiously all along lhc  front of the counter, had at last come  to the door. Not being bolted, thc  force of thc blow had sent it crashing  back.

But she can say this that what little-  she possesses thinks at a faster rate  than the mind of the superior sex.  This fact has been proved by a  scries of interesting experiments to  test the brain power of the two sexes.  The tesls were carried out as follows:  A cardboard disc was prepared having a hole in the centre. This disc wa:  connected with a clock, controlled "bj  electricity, and which was-able to  measure as little as ,the thousandth  part of a second.  Seated opposite this disc the person  undergoing the experiment had to keep  a look-out for a little card which suddenly dropped into' the hole in the  disc's centre. This card completed an  electric circuit and started the clock-  going. The moment the sitter saw the  card drop hc or she touched ,a key  which' stopped the clock at once. By  this-jneans the time was fixed that it  took the observer to think and to act.  It was found that in nine cases out  of ton the gentler sex beat the men.  This fact probably accounts for the  marvellous "intuition" of women, intuition that is really only rapid thinking.  I  'I dyed ALL these  ^DIFFERENT KINDS  of Goods  with fhe SAMEj>ye.

Address, P.O.Box 84, Enderby.  It is so easy to pray for the salvation of our boys and girls and then  blame the saloon, die billiard hall,  the dance room, or some other  branch of the social fabric of civilization for sending them to hell. We  hear a lot about it. And ,the men  and women who are really doing  most to inculcate the spirit of practical, helpfulness into the young, are  generally the persons to-be most condemned by the individual wh,ose  scope of helpfulness stops'at'prayer.  We wish* at this point to direct attention to a communication in this  issue of the Press,from the pen of  Assistant Scout Master Prince. Mr.  Prince has given light upon a subject of some local agitation, with  dignity and clearness  wish to intrude upon the ground covered .by him. But we do want to  call attention to .vhat we consider  the grossest piece of inconsistency if  not unfairness. The young men who  are assisting the Rev. Mr. Hilton in!  the local Boy . Scout movement, are  sacrificing their own personal comfort  to give their service in the Boy Scout  movement, ancl to .develop in the  boys under them that spirit of "manliness, and. honor, ' and at-the same"  time loyalty and* usefulness that is  so well "known as -a part of and essential to the scout" movement. The  work inaugurated by Mr. Jjy.lton, Mr.  G. G. Campbell, Mr. Pr0;e and Mr.  Roy Wheeler, has alrr/.dy put into  the boys of Enderby'?.'Spirit<,of prac-  Tn an address to the members of  the Canadian Club of Vancouver,  some days ago, Premier McBride  said in part:  "I fancy tomorrow, if there were  any international difficulties out here  in Western Canada, there would be a  condition far from what we ought to  anticipate.    There would be trouble;  there would be concern that is perhaps' not the usual thing, when one  realises that he lives under the protection of the Union Jack, and ought  to have the right to look for protection.    I do not wish to use one word  that is offensive or partaking of partisan politics.    We might be able to  take more interest in the movement  of the development of the country,  and  we  might be  able to show by  sympathy   that   we   are   associated  with the splendid work of your fellow-citizens    that    stands    for-   the  establishment   of   volunteer   troops,  We do not not only in this city, but in the other  centres of the province.

And  most of them will. In fact there will  hardly be n person ut the dance that  does not attend the church services,  church bazaars, etc. But a howl of  holy horror is raised because thc  boys have asked their parents and  friends to enjoy a popular social  function given under their auspices '  Will these parents ancl young people  comport themselves with less courtesy and chivalry at a social dance!  than at a church bazaar, lawn social  or what-not ? If so they had better  stay at home, for if we know anything about Scout regulations, there  will be something doing if any parent  or prayerful citizen gets naughty.  FREE   PUBLICITY   AGE.

It behooves ns, whether we are engaged  in matters political or not, whether  in the brighter walks of life, to see.  how much more can be done. I  think lho people of thc country have  already demonstrated the confidence  they have in their province, such as  to mako the most indifferent Canadian in the far Bast understand, that  we have the courage to live up to tlie  faith that, we profess in this western  section of the Dominion, and that  we propose to leave nothing undone  as true Canadians to discover to our  fellow Canadians of the Empire  especially what has been done in the  province lying west of the Rocky  Mountains."

Sir,���������������������������It will" soon be time for the  usual yearly road work to get under  way, and by the published reports  v/e are to have a large amount expended in the Province, and in this  Riding in particular; <amongst other  things are 'mentioned a roller and  rock crushing. machinery, also a  motor car for the superintendent.  The   former   no   doubt   in   some  places could ;be put to good advantage, but the latter it seems to me at  the  present  time  is  somewhat  like  the fifth wheel to a coach.    Anyone  travelling   our   roads   in   spring   or  after a wet spell of weather would,  come to the conclusion that it is not  a motor car-that is required  (which  can only be used when the roads are  partly dried  up,  but -an annual inspection early# in the spring, and he  would see that the first requirement  is a,thorough system of ditches and  culverts.    Although the several foremen have resided in tliis district, and  travelled these roads for years, there  is very, little attempt made to keep  the water off the roads. '.Tlie result  is that at every little dip'in the"hills,  even  within.sight  of "Enderby,  the  water.runs over or down  the road-  until iii course of time lit is dried up,  although a. short "distance away the  road is perfectly.-dry. ��������������������������� ^  .At the present, time there, is a culvert put in a few years ago' on rising  ground ������������������and idn\ lower-ground   the  water stands up to a level.with the  road "and at times ^covers  it.'

Aldergrove, B.O THE ENDERBY PRESS AND: WALKER'S WEEKLY  Thursday, May 2, 1912  7.  ���������������������������rare  Profitable Crops to Grow Between  the Trees in Young Orchards  We are in receipt, of Circulars Nos. i  12 and  ly, the lirsl.on  lhe growing  ol' crops between orchard trees, and  the second on the culture of cabbaye,  celery and tomatoes, recently issued  bv the Department ol" Agriculture.  * V\i lo the year 19 09  the practice  of growing crops between young orchard  trees was not widely followed  because    of    failure    in    marketing.  Though   in   many   districts   the   first  producers found a ready local  market up to a'certain point, later pro-j  - ductions more than equalled the de-1  mand and prices,fell because of in-;  discriminate  consignments  of small-  lots to  retailers and-to commission ��������������������������� may  men   which   failed   to  bring  remun-  it  is  erative prices.    About 1909 a number of districts had managed to work  up'their production to a point where  they  could ship car  loads  of  potatoes, etc., and market them properly.  Since that time the growiug of crops  between orchard trees has been commercially successful in many parts of  the Province and it has done a great  deal to render possible the development of voting orchards by men of  limited capital.    On this account we  believe  that the matter in  this circular  on   orchard   inter-crops  winch  deals   with    the   general    principles  which should govern their use, will  be of much interest to our readers.  As in the case of other circulars of  this series, a limited number of these  was printed ancl there are not more  than 150 copies left for distribution  at the present time.  Circular No. 15 gives technical information on the commercial production of cabbage, celery and tomatoes,  in "British Columbia. The methods  detailed arc those which have given  results and which are now in use by  the most successful producers ot  these crops in our interior country.  Anvone interested should send to the  "uartmeni for a copy of 'this  iar, as the information contained is  '   of great value.  ' "Onlv i annual crops should be  grown in fruit plantations," says Circular No. 12. "In general, some low-  growing crop which demands ^good  tillage and comes off early is" best.  Almost any ��������������������������� vegetable crop may be  grown, but with all such crops the  question of-markets should be care-  ' 'fully considered before planting anv  large'area.- In'any section there is  alwavs something in^the way of vegetables that can be grown at-a profit.  The kind of crop grown will also depend largely .on the type of soil and  the location of the orchard. .  "Grain   or   hay should   never   be  "grown    in    the   orchard.   They    are  especially objectionable because they  1  do not permit the cultivation of the  soil nor shade !t sufficiently to keep  it   from   baking.     Of   course,   such  crops as wheat, rye, oats, clover, etc.,  may be grown late in the season as (  ' cover   crops   to   plow   under,   but   if,  grown for grain or hay it is too hard j  to   preserve   the   moisture   ancl   thei  physical condition of the soil is not  improved.  A hoed crop is much more  desirable.    The growing of nursery  stock  in  young orchards should   be  discouraged.     This   crop   makes  the  same demands upon  the soil  as  orchard itself, and it does not allow  the   variations   in    cultivations   and  management     which     are     possible  when    different    crops    are    grown.  danger of leaving bush fruits too  long in the orchard: In irrigated  sections strawberries are /sometimes  grown with good results. There is  not the clanger of over-watering this  crop that there is in the case of the  bush fruits, as the strawberry season  is over quite early.  "Young orchards should never be  left in sod. Sod lands are not only  drier than cultivated ground, but  ihey are favorite breeding places o  insects. Mice often harbor in sod  lands, and they often do considerable damage to young trees  "There are a few cases where sod  be grown in old orchards, but  the exception  rather than the  rule.    In such a case as a very steep  i hillside  where  there  was  plenty  oi  moisture available it might be an advantage to leave the orchard n   sod-  'However,   nothing  should   be,   taken  off the ground.   The grass should be  cut and left on the ground.

Potatoes  thrive best on the light or medium  soils but occasionally heavier soils  are found that are adapted to tho  fro p. Potatoes require the cultivation of ihe soil in the spring and  early part of the summer, and consequently are among the best to  grow in the orchard.  "Early corn, onions, carrots, beets,  etc., arc good crops to grow as intercrops in the young orchard, because  thev all renuire good cultivation and  generally tempt the manager to liberal fertilizing.  "Tn fruit districts where canning  factories are being built, such crops  as tomatoes, corn, and beans may be  grown, as it is often difficult for the  factories to get a sufficient supply  these crops.  "When clovers or vetches are  grown it is well to leave a good wide  strip on each side of the trees for  cultivation, especially where irrigation is not available, so that the  trees will not. suffer from lack of  moisture. One crop can then be  taken off, and the second crop allowed to grow to plow under next  spring. This supplies nitrogen and  adds humus to the soil.

He had not said "scintilla."  the mistake of: breeding to defective  stallions, but far more are guilty ot  the fault of breeding too few mares,  and these often of a very faulty type.  Why is this so? Mainly because they  feel that the risk of keeping the mares  for which a high price has been offered is too great. "She might die,"  is the common comment, "and see what  I would lose." If kept, there are fifty  chances to one that she will live, if  she is healthy and well cared for.  This being so, wherein is the gain from  selling? A brood mare in foal and a  good breeder is a developed gold mine  to a farm. The young filly which  gives promise of becoming a satisfactory breeder is an exploited mine of  wealth which it will pay the owner to  develop. Do not sell the good fillies,  and be equally tardy about breeding  the undesirable mares.  *    *    ������������������  If you have never tried feeding a  few roots to thc idle horses, do so  now. A good turnip, mangel or a  few carrots will be greatly relished.  There is nothing like a variety of  foods to keep the horse's appetite keen,  and there is nothing like a good appetite to aid in keeping the animal  in condition. It is difficult to fatten  a horse that will not eat.  Remember that horses which are being highly fed and fitted for sale are  more susceptible to thrush than those  on a more scanty diet. It is necessary to take greater precaution in  keeping the animals' feet clean and  dry.  'In exercising the horses during the  winter months, it must be remembered  that an amount sufficient for one animal will not always be the correct  amount for another. Study the animal's needs in this matter as you do  their feed requirements.  According to the Oregon Experiment'  Station, a horse which receives, a larger quantity of hay that he needs cannot do as much work as one receiving  just the required amount, because an  over-distended stomach imposes greater work' upon the respiratory system,  and  indigestion  in  some of its  many  Count less-have been the cures worked by Holloway's Corn Cure. It has  a power of its own not found in other  preparations.  Cured in Beamsville, Out.  "After a long experience with different pain remedies, 1 am convinced that  none are equal to Nerviline. I was  taken with av cold': in my chest, which  later developed inlo a sort of chronic  bronchitis. Every time I coughed it  seemed to rack and tear my whole  chest. I was also subject to a great  stiffness in my joints, especially about  the knees and shoulders, and experienced much pain in my muscles. To  cure my chest troubles I first rubbed  on 'Nerviline' copiously ^.ir two days,  and then put a Nerviline Porous Plaster  over the sore region. 1 got quick relief. Rubbing the sore muscles and  aching joints with Nerviline did mora  than all other treatments combined.

Fifteen pounds is given as a better feed  for a 1,000-pound horse than twenty  pounds, and it is said that a horse  of this weight fed five pounds in the  morning and ten pounds at night, -will  be able to do more work than one  which has a manger of hay before him  at all times. For a fifteen to eighteen hundred-pound horse, twenty  pounds of hay is given as enough  roughage, and the remainder of the  ration-should be grain.

S.������������������  Horse-breeders are, as years go by,  putting forth extra efforts to improve  the class of horses in the country.     No  amount of money, is spared in the purchasing of good sires, and considerable  is  also  spent  in  bringing  good  fillies j  into the country, but it is quite nolice-  ible in most show-rings, as well as in  travelling throughout the country, that-  the stallions are of a higher order than  the    fillies;    that    is.    proportionately,  there are more "top-notchers" amongst  the  males   than  amongst   the  females  in our heavy-horse breeds.   True, there  is  an   improvement   noticeable   in   the,  quality of some of the best Allies ex-',  hibited, but many are somewhat plain.  It is not so apparent, perhaps, in the  ^lrow*^ihg~rs~ on^the^  come and offer a seemingly large price  for the good young filly, and, after hesitating a short  time,  she  is  sold,  and  a    few    nondescript    cross-breds    or  "scrubs"   kepi  for  breeding   purposes,  and the owner wonders why he doesn't get a prizewinning colt from mating this class of mare with the champion stallion of our largest shows. The  stallion will do his part, but he is not  the   only- Influence .exerted .upon .the  colt.      The maternal  influence  cannot  but be great, and it matters not  how  prepotent  tho  sire  is   in   transmitting  his desirable quality and conformation  to his offspring, eleven months sp-ml in  the foetal stage, together with all  thc  inherent qualities of the dam's ancestors   passed   down   through   the  ovum  to   the   foal,   must   have   their   effect,  and a very noticeable effect  it i.s.     It  is just about as impossible to get the  best colt from a good sire and a poor  dam  as  it  is  to  get a  good   machine  from an expert mechanic and defective  material.  To attain lhe highest possible level  in our horse-breeding, the fillies which  are being raised for breeding purposes  must receive the attention they merit.  Select the mares as scrupulously as  stallions are selected in thc districts  where the best of our drafters are  bred, and see how quickly an improvement will be noticed. The remedy is  in the hands of the farmers and horse-  breeders. The time is approaching  when buyers will be scouring the country for horses. They will offer good  prices, but turn a deaf ear when they  insist upon purchasing your brood  mares or  good  fillies.  Keep them. They are valuable in  your horse business.

"I suffered for six years from cramps  7*in   the   muscles   and   kidney  disease,"  '"Mr. Bernard says, "but Dodd's Kidney  Pills cured me completely.   Yes, I am  ���������������������������feeling so well that I want other sufferers to know just how easy it is to  be cured."  It is a good old saying that it is  easy to do anything if you jjust know  how. And Mr. Bernard and hundreds  of others are telling you just how to  cure kidney disease.

I'll pack hard today, and tomorrow  wo will go to find our dream house.  Oh, Stephen, it seems too good* to be  true!"  It was this unusually long, unusually  happy farewell that made it necessary  for him to rush like the youth he  wasn't and the enthusiast he was, to  catch that last platform. And now  he took the last two steps of the "L"  stairs as one. Oh, it. was good to be  alive, and to be done���������������������������almost done���������������������������  with the city!  He had told them at the store a  month ago that he expected to resign  at his vacation time, ancl they had  urged him to reconsider.  "Think it over for the month. " We  won't take your, word as final until  then; and please don't-let the possibility of a change get out yet. "'It is upsetting to the department. We hope  you will reconsider your decision."  "*Reconsider!" He smiled now at the  thought. Why, the thing was settled  years ago. Reconsider staying in the  department store���������������������������in the department  he had made such a states-wide success? No, he was done with it forever. But he would avoid any possibility of discussion by holding his formal resignation until closing time. Entering the building, he gave his morning paper to the elevator boy with  the usual question, "How's the mother  this morning, Will?"  "Belter, thank you. She slept fine  last night. Your idea about the milk  ancl crackers works like a charm; and,  Mr. Randall, she wanted I should tell  you how glad she is you've got Harry  in your department. She don't worry  about him any more like she did."  In the office'Randall found aN" very-  old friend, Mr. Reigand, with whom  he had first dared the city. He smiled  reminiscently now as he took off his  gloves after greeting the man. That  little place and this! Still, he had  learned the foundations of his business  in that. little place, and it, too, had  grown. Reigand & Co. had the largest  store now in their thickly populated  district. Many of the _ people there  never-came into the State Street shopping centre. ' - - "��������������������������� ,j .  " Reigand was explaining" his "unusual  visit.'- "I am* up against it, Randall.

'     - - -  Stephen Randall remembered with a  twinge Mulligan's reference to his  "having both fists full."-''* - If he acceded to this request in the Quixotic  fashion Reigand seemed to think possible, one of those fists would be pretty  empty for a year, and���������������������������why, it'would  mean postponing- their exodus to the  promised land! -.-- ' ���������������������������_ , ' -**��������������������������� - ���������������������������  .Almost without his 'will-he found  himself answering: "I am sorry, very  sorry indeed, Mr. Reigand, but the fact  is, I have made plans, that "will make  it impossible for me to change any of  my capital. "I- am leaving here for  goocl tonight. I am. sorry. : I would  like.to.see my way clear to help you  out, but I can't."  ,-As Reigand closed the ground-glass  door behind him, Stephen Randall lifted his head with a quick, impatient  gesture that was characteristic.

Thank tho Lord I'm clone with it!" .  ���������������������������As-the-morning-wore on, the radiant  look faded, as radiant looks are apt  to in the stress of down-town life.  Details that had on other days passer!  unnoticed brought today the, quick  gesture of impatience, and Randall's  friendly greetings to his salespeople  seemed automatic. Half unconsciously he asked one of his younger salesmen: "Well, Phil, how went the lesson  last night?" But the boy's quick response failed to bring the usual appreciative smile.  "I knew you'd bo after asking me  that this morning, so when some of  the fellows asked me to go set in at  a game with them over Mike's Cafe,  I turned them down so I could tell you  I finished thc series. Trust you, sir,  not to forget to keep at a chap! but  I'm sure I'm glad you do. I don't  seem to have the nerve to stick at the  lessons sometimes, and then I think  you'll sure ask, and you're Johnny-on-  the-spot every time. I'll bring you the  new drawings in the morning if I may,  sir."  As Mr. Randall passed on without  answering this suggestion, he heard thc  boy say to another who had overheard: "Now what's eating him? Sure,  though, he'll be all right soon. There's'  only- one like him about this place,  and that's himself. Me for him and  lhe advertising course! I'm bound to  make good if just because he keeps  at me."  Later in the morning the secretary  of a social settlement centre called up  Randall, asking for an appointment to  talk   over   with   him   some   low-rent  apartment-houses in"their crowded district.       , --.*���������������������������--���������������������������,  "We are  trying,"  he said,  "to persuade the owner,to remodel'-his buildings.

' As .Randall hung upjthe receiver at  the close of that talk,-the last glimmer  of  the  radiant1- look' was" gone. ' .He  frowned"- impatiently at r a pretty little  blonde girl'\yho was waiting an iriter-T  .view with him.     She' was "one of the  salesgirls, \who  was "rapidly     making  good in-the department, placed, as she  was,  under  the'guidance of an acid,  shrill-voiced veteran-with quick hands  and thin hair-who, looking at the glint  of  the  sun-lighted   braids  and  vainly trying to "make her own dark tresses  conceal the escaping rats, would-confess:  "I'm just dippy about that kid.  She's too sweet and cute for anything,  and that hair ain't any hand-me-down.  It's rooted,  every blonde bit. of it...in  her own head."      ' -  The pretty little blonde met Mr. Randall's frown with tear-filled-eyes. "Oh,  Mr. Randall! "Is it so you are going  away, and Mr. Kumber from Caffort's  is coming to take your place? You  know I began there, and���������������������������well"���������������������������and  here.jthe_pink_and_white_cheeksjj_u r n___  ed Tose���������������������������"it was on account of him I  quit.

And the rounded, girlish  form shook with sobs..  Mr. Stephen Randall had spent little  time considering who would take his  place. Somehow ho had taken it for  granted that" Marvin-Kirhy" would _b~c~  promole'd. J-le deserved il, and the  advance would lie especially opportune,  for Kirby's wifo had recently undergone a most serious operation ancl  wns even now but slowly recuperating,  at a most expensive sanitarium. Kirby  was a splendid fellow and know tho  department thoroughly. They had  worked most successfully together.  There wns not one inefficient person  in the whole force, and, so far as they  knew, not an indecent one.  Tf the little girl was justified in her  fear; if the firm was planning to bring  over Mr. Kumber���������������������������well, as far as business ability was concerned, the company could find no ,better man. But,  once established here, he would install  his brother-in-law, Wittaker, and, oh'  Lord! Marvin would have to go, and  then Lena, and John, and Mrs. Roberts, and Miss Snediker. Mentally  Randall reviewed a list of his best',  most faithful workers." Kumber and  Wittaker would change the whole combination. With a frown that outclassed the one which had greeted the  little salesgirl, he walked slowly  through his department, studying the  salespeople in his charge.  His face did not lighten as he overhead a customer, a little woman in  black, say to a sales girl: "It's a great  Worms in children, if they-be not  attended to, cause convulsions, and often death.. Mother Graves' Worm Exterminator will protect the children  from  these distressing afflictions.  comfort to us mothers to have our girls  in a department- like this." Randall  paused to catch the girl's reply as she  leaned over toward the customer. But  when she said, "Oh, but that's all to be  changed now"���������������������������he hurried on, impatiently.      - /  7-  ;   *    .,.'-,'���������������������������   .

The,fellow  was "anxious "to marry herat once, and  it really 'seemed a mistake to send  her over."    ._,...-_  Stephen Randall hung up the'receiver with a bang. ���������������������������'��������������������������� Damn it! This life  was maddening. Plow had he. stood  it so long? A man had no chance  here to live his own life cleanly. He  looked out over, the busy street. The  traffic officer, 'with his shrill-whistle  and white-gloved hands, stayed and  advanced'the countless throngs hurrying, hurrying, with.never a-greeting to  passersby. He remembered how. that  had impressed him when - he first  came to Chicago. No one ever seemed to meet any one ho knew on' the  crowded streets.

Stephen Randall, to whose lips oaths had come but  epochally, stood at the great windows  on this, his last day, and swore repeatedly under his breath.  When at last the day was over and  his interview with the firm at an end,  ���������������������������he-walked-slowly-to-his "Polly"L"~sta-"  tion. Gone was every vestige of the  radiant look hc had worn as he entered lhe car that morning. Weary,  preoccupied, apprehensive, he listlessly  opened his paper and turned to thc  pink sheet. At the third stop a shabby  old scullery maid came and stood in  the crush by his seat. She glanced  wearily at the man who had always  promptly yielded her his place; now hc  stared, unseeing, at lhe sporting sheet.  "Thankee, sir," she muttered, when  at last he rose guiltily to his feet.  Then she added, speaking more than a  "thank you" for the first time in their  long months' little byplay, over the  seat: "I don't know, somo nights, what  I would do if it wasn't for ye, sir, always having a seat for me. My feet  do be so tired, and supper and things  to do for the childer when"! gets home."  For the first time' since morning  Stephen Randall's face lighted with a  smile. "I'm always very glad to be  able to give you a seat, madam," he  answered cheerily.  When he reached his station, hc  walked heavily down thc long steps,  and heavily he climbed tho steps to  his second-floor apartment. At the  door, Bertha flung herself into his  arms, sobbing hysterically: "Oh, Steve,  Steve, I dread to tell you! I have  Jane Hemmel's twins here In our flat.

ON EARTH -  When Napoleon was sent to St. Helena, it was thought that the loneliest  place on earth had been assigned to  him as a prison. But St. Helena is  fourteen hundrod miles nearer a continent than is Tristan d'Ac una. Many  hundreds of miles of ocean lie between  this island and its nearest neighbor.  Tristan, in short, is a tiny oasis in a  boundless wilderness of waters, go  from it in which direction you will.  It is a rocky ancl cliff-girt little isle  with a solitary mountain a thousand  feet high rearing itself from the midst.  Yet on this lonely speck of rock and  earth there lives a community seemingly quite happy in its isolation from all  the rest of the world. Thoy are farmers, cattle-raisers, and shepherds. In  the valleys of thc island are fertile  fields where potatoes mainly arc grown.  Thc food of the people consists, for  the most part, of beef, mutton, fowls,  potatoes, nnd fish.  Tristan used formerly lo produco  many fruits ancl vegetables which can  no longer be grown there. The reason  of this is that the island for a long  time was overrun by rats, which escaped from a ship that anchored thero  and which the people have been unable, it is said, ever entirely to exterminate.

E. Scott, provincial superintendent of Institutes, has adopted a  plan which he; believes will have a  tendency to improve and build up the  membership of the local institutes.  He proposes to award a set of-books  dealing with agriculture for the best  results in each''of the' following:  1. For the most complete set of  reports, statement of accounts, and  membership lists sent in during the  year by any Institute.  2. For the largest number of new  members secured during 1912.  3. For the best essay dealing with  the subject of crops hy any member  of an Institute at any of the meetings of said Institute.  . Thc desire is to create more enthusiasm among members, and to get  them to apply themselves more keenly to the work of their Institutes,  by assisting in writing essays,, ancl  personally reading same at meetings  of the Institute from time to time.  The books will form a nucleus of a  library for each Institute, and arrangements will have to be made by  the executive committees of the successful Institutes as to having the  books placed on file so that they may  be available for the perusal of the  members at any time they may so  desire.
