The- name of Friday street is-derived "from the fact that in medieval  times many fishmongers resided there  and held their Friday: market in the  vicinity.

Great  Britain was represented at the diet by  Sir'Alexander Malet, one oE the most  popular chiefs to be found in the service.  "But I was", even more appreciated  than my chief'' he would relate, "ard  this is "why: Sometimes there was a  ball at' the court, .which we were expected to attend. At my first ball supper I.found myself next-to a grandee,  gorgeous in - stars and ribbons. The  servant came to pour our cha'mpagre.  I shook my head, for I detest champagne. The grandee nudged me and  said. 'Let him pour it out.' This I  did, and he explained to me that our  host never 'gave his guests more than  one glass.

Good Tempered Turtles  Place a number of different kinds  and sizes of turtles in a small space  and the forbearance which is exhibited  might well be a lesson to man.

A small painted terrapin, for  instance, will clamber solidly over the  head of a vicious snapper, and the  chances are that the latter will merely  duck its head or move to one side so  that the claws of the former will not  injure its eyes. There seems at such  times a look of patient resignation oi  sullen submission, which' would immediately" change- to savage resentment  and fierce attack if a man made a hundredth part of the commotion.

Your nerves  are crying ^ut for pure blood and the  mission of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills is  to make new, rich ' blood. This explains why these pils have proved  successful in so many cases of nervous disease that did not yield to ordinary treatment. For example, Mr.  W. H. Weldon, Annapolis, N.S., says:  "In the strenuous life I have to follow  the drain on my system was sbgreat-  that my nerves became shattered, the  blood impoverished and my- whole system undermined. I tried a number of  so-called remedies without deriving  any benefit. Finally having read so  much about Dr- Williams' Pink Pills I  decided to try them. The result was  beyond my expectation. I regained  my energy; the blood and nerves were  rebuilt; I lost the sense of constant  tiredness I had felt and was filled with  new life and energy. I have since  used the pills with beneficial results  in my family and will always have a  word of praise for them."

But he  said the second"' time that he tried it  he was interrupted by one of the officers with a message from the captain begging him to desist on the  ground that some of the lady passengers were frightened by his behavior,  being under the impression that he  was mentally deranged.

"How���������er���������that is, I was wondering  my.dear, how you found out that the  mean tiling looked back. Some one tell  you?" inquired Mr. Tolker innocently.  And Mrs. Tolker straightaway turned' the stream of her indignation,  seething hot, from Mrs. Gadabout' to  her "insinuating wretch of a husband,"  as she fondly termed him, and after  the first pyrotechnic outburst refused  to speak to the fortunate man for the  rest of the evening.���������Pittsburgh LJs-  patch. ,  The Price of Peace  She appeared to be' somewhat excited when he came home that night,  and he naturally a.lccd the cause.

He-stood  concealed. in a doorway, stepped out  and confronted Bill as the latter passed and leveled a pistol at his head.  " 'I've got you now, Wild Bill,' he  said, 'and I'm going to kill you, but  I'll give you one minute to pray!'  "'Well,' said Bill with an easx  smile, 'it does look like the jig's up!  "Suddenly Bill peered over tho man's  shoulder and waved a deprecatory  hand.  '"Don't hit him, Andy!' he said.  "The man wheeled to protect himself from the supposed enemy iu his  rear.

Energy and Work  "What becomes of tho energy of motion of a street car when suddenly  stopped?"  Law���������mass multiplied by velocity  equals momentum. The5 mass of the  car in pounds or tons multiplied by its  specific speed in feet per second gives,  a product named foot pounds or foot  tons. This momentum is expended at  the instant of collision orimpact in de-  liveriug a blow, as in the case of a  cannon ball. If the tody receiving the  impact is movable part of the momem-  tum will appear in it as motion. If  immovable tho car w:.U be smashed or  move backward. .And the molecules of  the matter at point of impact will Lo  increased iu temperature and also be  moved somewhat. This requires energy, and work has been accomplished  from instant of collision until rest obtains.

The chijf visible sign of the campaign will be an exhibition train to  run over all the thousands of miles  of the Canadian railways, for a year  a-'; first, and ..tterwards for as many  years as British traders find it use-  'Vul and profitable. It will exhibit examples of the best of British goods  suitable for Canadian use, made by  representative.-British  firms.  It was at first proposed to hire the  train from one '.of the Canadian ra:l-  ��������� ways, but it has been decided that,  to   carry   out   the   "Made  in  Britain'  ��������� idea to the fullest extent, the train itself and the locomotive shall"be built  in the "Uni'-ed Kingdom, the finest- the  country can produce, and taken  across   the  Atlantic "with  the    other  . exhibits. ' -  The organizer of the scheme, Mr.  L. J. Beirne, secretary of the Canadian chamber ,of commerce, talking  of the campaign, said:  "As a preliminary to the train tour,  we promise to send out special commissioners "to������ investigate conditions,  especially on the transport Question,  with- particular riference to the possibilities'of tha Panama canal in regard- to trade between this country  and Western Canada.. '    ._  "Our idea in running this train is  that since less than a quarter of  Canada's import trade comes from  this country there, is immense scope  for an expansion" of- trade there, if  British manufacturers know what is  wanted :n Canada, and Canadians  know, what thoy-can get here, and  -when they can get it. We do not  want-to displace Canadian-made goods,  "but foreign manufacturers, and our  motto is: "Whether made in Canac-a  or in the -United Kingdom���������Buy British goods'.'  " "There will be at least six exhibition cars on the train, 70 feet long by  10 feet high and 10. feet wide, and  each will cost $20,000 a year to run, so  that ."exliit'itois ���������. will ��������� have to ; pay  roughly $300 a root for sections of the  car. - Each car wiil be divided in' different ' ways, according to the article  exhibited. Part of it may be divided  by a central pangway, with.platforms  ��������� oi show cases of equal width, on  cither, side.Yfor which $150 a foot  would'be paid. Another section could  be divided by a side gangway, with  only a wall slit,'v. case for small shop-  window goods on one side. ���������*  "Our idea is for large manufacturing.towns to take a whole car earn,  to be named after the town, bear its  coat" of avms, and, be filled with examples or models of its manufactures.

A  STUPENDOUS  TASK  Taking the Census of India's Huge  Population  The task of taking a census of  India must be'stupendous considering  that vast country numbers over 300,-  000,000 persons, scattered over an area  of 1,807,000 square miles.  A staff of two milion persons was  employed for the purpose, and the  census was taken in one night" in  March, at a cost of only $G75,000.  The difficulties were especially  great iwing to the long , lines of  railway, tbe big rivers on which  boats travel sometimes for days  without coning to the bank, the forests to which woodcutters resort, often for' weeks at a time, and the  numerous sacred places, which, on  occasions, attract many thousands of  ^pilgrims.  People had fo be enumerated wherever they. were caught. In the case  of railways, for instance, all persons  travelling by rail who took tickets  after 7 p.m. on the night of the census were enumerated either on the  platform or in the trains. The latter  were all stopped at 6 a.m. on the  following morning," in order to include any travellers who up till then  had escaped notice.  'In spite of this,' and owing to the  vast work done preliminarily, the results for the whole of India were received complete nine days later, and  were issued-.in prinU-tlie next day.  This rapidity, as the' official report  mentions with justifiable pride,' "is  nof approached even in the smallest  European state."  The summary tables show that the  total population of India (including  the native states) "on the night the  census was taken was 315,156,396 ;'as  against 294,361,05 ten years- previously, of whom .217,586,892 were  Hindus, 66,647,299 were Moslems, 10,-  721,453 were Buddhists, and 3,876,203'  were Christians. The literates numbered only 18,-539,57S persons, and  agriculture claimed the labor of  224,695,909 persons, as against 35,-  323,041  persons  engaged  in  industry.

At  one prison alone 25,000 trees, mostly  American ash and pines were planted in 1913, and so successful have  these plantations been that this work  will be considerably extended in the  present year.  A similar idea has been worked out  successfully by "the city of SairDiego  in California, which ^possesses 7,000  acres of bare rolling "sand land at a  distance of ten miles from the city. A  trained forester was engaged to make  this land profit-yielding and under bis  direction the city's unemployed have  been given work planting this area  with trees suitable to the nature of tho  country. Other cities in the United  States that have found it necessary to  purchase,and reforest large areas on  the watersheds governing their water-  supply have advantageously used the  same kind of labor. The primary purpose of'such reforestation is not, however, to - furnish work to the unemployed, but to develop a profitable  source of revenue from land which  would .otherwise remain unproductive.  City forests of this kind are not, as  yet, in vogue' in this country. Perhaps the only city forest in' Canada is  that at Guelph, Ont., where a small  area has boen planted surrounding the  springs which furnish the city's water  supply. In many of tbe counties cf  Eastern Canada, however, are large  areas of waste land, originally forested, and caapble only of producing for-  ests. .Ontario has a Counties Reforestation, Act making possible the acquisition of such waste land;for reforestation purposes by municipal councils, but up to the present-time only  one county; has availed itself of chis  opportunity Quebec and the Dominion government have also passed legislation to encourage tree planting, and  the Dominion forestry branch in the  last;.fiscal, year'distributed nearly 4,-  000,000 trees from-the nurseries at Indian Head for woocllot planting in  Western Canada.      *'���������.-'-  The growing of forest trees on w^ste  land can in most caucs be made a profitable undertaking, besides providing  labor to a considerable number of men,  yet no extensive reforestation has as  yet  been  done, in  Eastern  Canada.

Rancher Succeeds  in Taming  Herd of  Mountain Sheep  The success which Mr. J. M.  Thomas, a cattle rancher of Okanagan  Falls,. B-C., has had in training wild  mountain sheep to come down from  their fastnesses and-feed in his fields,  has been attested to by a remarkable  photograph sen; in t'ef^the provincial  game warden. The photograph shows  a-small herd of mountain, sheep with  their lambs eating clover hay which  had been thrown out as food for -the  ranch ��������� horses. The snap-shot was  taken at .-. distance of 35 yards and  shows several horses in the picture  as well as the-, mountain sheep.  Mr. Thomas who before going to  Okanagan Faiis some years ago, was  an officer at the New Westminster  penitentiary, has for several years  made an hobby "for caring for wild  life in the vicinity of his ranch. When  a close season was declared for the  mountain .-jhecp in the Okanagan, he  in winter weather would put out some  food for any occasional mountain  sheep he s.aw in the hills. In the  course of three or four years ihe  sheep have gained confidence uniil  last year and this they have ventured  to  come   dow>>   to   the  ranch.  At the time the photograph was  taken, Mr. Thomas says that ihcre  were eighteen ewes and yearlings  browsing with ten lambs, the latter  as friskly and playful as cou'd be. Mr.  Thomas is of the "opinion that it is  far better sport to nurture the animals or to go "gunning" them with  a camera, 'than to exterminate them  with a rifle.  DUMPED   IN   UNITED   STATES  Goods     Made     in   English   Jails   Are  Shipped   to   America  Harry Hawes, of St. Louis, appeared  before the senate committee on manufactures in support of a bill to prohibit the importation of convict and  pauper-made goods. He said he represents the boot and shoe manufacturers  of St. Louis.  Hawes told the committee that the  convicts in the United States were  producing 33*1,000,000 worth of goods  a year, and that abroad it was estimated that convicts produced $560,-  000,000 worth.  The convicts in this country were  paid on an average 50 to 75 cents a  day, and in foreign countries from  5 to 25 cents a day.  In English prisons the men were  not paid anything, and under the  law, 'contractors for prison-made  goods were not aliowed to sell prison-  made goods in England. The goods  are dumped in the Unted States, he  declared, in competition with American labor.  BIRTH   RATE  IS  STILL  FALLING  CLAIMS TO HAVE SOLVED SECRET  Company     Wil!

The remainder of the  prophecy; dealing with social, economic and administrative reconstruction, is a condensation of the well-  known propaganda which for years  had been so much of a preoccupation to him that he believed its- fulfilment to be inevitable. The re  markable feature of the prophecy,  whoever uttered it, is the accuracy  with which it outlined the occur  rences of the lastttwo years.
