"* ISxcept for-the trip* of the ministerial party to4he northern sections  of the province, there are no suiface  indications   of   an   impending elec-  ��������� tion.    Premier   McBride,   hovvever,  ��������� li is m.ide a practice"*)/ going to the  country considerably before the  term of the assembly expires. He  took office . in June, 1903, and. his  first general election took place in  the fall. '.. Subsequently elections  were held a&follows:- January, 1907;  November, 1909; March, 1912. The  '. present house, therefore, has been in  existence but little over half-its term  and has held but   two sessions.    A  general   election   in   August vyould  mean a considerable   shortening-.of  -   the already somewhat brief interval  -.. between.,such   appeals,' to   which  ;���������' ;s rB,ritisb.;-C6lumbJa-..has  become ac-  ,?r >;>cusfotfted.Tr .'AVrecentr re poTt~*frorn-  '^" Ottawa'stetecUba.tther Dominion gov  y >ernment;would:;go{to the country-in-  the' fall if the results^in "Ontario.and  Manitoba proved  satisfactory., Pos-  . sibly Premier McBride   is  taking  a  leaf out of.

Johnson 'and his associaics set to  work to develop the mine out of its  own . earnings, rather than waste  time in endeavoring to interest capi-  taffnrex'tensive development. -��������� T|>e  Fee brothers, who h--ive owned ' the  Maple Leaf group for the past ten  years,.are contemplating work on-  their own property, which directly  adjoins the;Union claims.  "As-a result.of the mining actiyi  ty at the Franklin camp,' the C.P.R"  is said to be considering building a  light line to the camp At present  the ore has to be hauled by team a  distance of twenty milts to a ship  ping point "  Profitable Farming  The United States department of  agriculture assigns the following-as  vital factors of the profitableness of  farming: (1) Low real estate prices.  (2) Farm products of classes deficient in supply. (3) Magnitude of  the farm business, measured either  by land farmed or amount of labor  required. (4) High quality of products. (5) Reputation of the producer���������applies especially to the  production of pure-bred breeding  stock. (6) Advantageous marketing.  (7) Productiveness of animals kept.  (8) Largest yield with relatively  little labor and fertilizer. ,(9) Low  cost of production���������involves good  firm organization. (10) Stability  of profit depends on the staple char  ncter of theproducts.". '.'���������'"'���������'  Activity at Ffanklin Camp  The Vancouver Province prints  the following regarding operations at  Franklin camp:    -  ''Considerable mining activity.in  the Franklin camp on the north  fork of the Kettle river is reported  by .A. J. Fee, of. Vancouver, who is  in the camp looking after the work  on the Maple Leaf group of claims,  owned by himself and his' brother,  J. B, Fee, of Vancouver,  "Mr. Fee says that the-Union  mine, on which the owner, Lewis  Johnson,   and   his friends   started  ;   work last summer, has  uncovered a  high   grade: copper   ore, and , that  'i.shipments are daily made"from the  Union mine.- Over 100 horses are-  engaged on the ore lead and in ship-  iiping ore/to Lynch.creek, a  distance^  of 20 miles, from whence it is taken  by the Kettle Valley railway to the  Between September 1, 1913, and  June 6, 1914, -the Borden government was compelled to borrow no  less than ������18,500,OUO. Taking'a  pound as equal to $4.87, the total  borrowings have amounted to the  enormous sum of $90,095,000 in the  period in question. Taking the  population of the Dominion as an  ���������"even-8,000,000'-the'goverh'meritin ten'  'months has increased the indebtedness of .the country by an amount  equ-il to- inore than $11 for every  man,-woman and child. Put. in still  another "way, the reckless- extravagance and "wastefulness of Premier  Borden and bis colleagues has  brought an increase in Canada's indebtedness equal to nearly $60 for  every average Canadian family.  And this is the government which  promised care and economy in the  administration of  Canadian   affairs.  Court  of   Appeals Decides  ' -Against Olaim of Koma': '  . gata Maru Hindus  Black Walnuts for Hens  A lady who lives near St. Clair,  111., and is a successful poultry  raiser, says that she secures winter  eggs by feeding her chickens black  walnuts. Their farm has many  walnut trees. They crack up sometimes a bushel at a time for the  hens, which industriously pick out  every kernel, thus securing the rich  oily food needed at this season and  getting the exercise'of picking among  the shells. The rich, nut meals  serve the same purpose as animal  meats for the hens.  - 'The appeal of "the Hindu passenger on the KomagataMaru, Munshi  Singh, to the British Columbia court  of appeals has failed, and the 352  immigrants on board the ship .will  have to return with their leader,  Gurdit Singh, to the place from,  which they came. The order-in-  council under which the immigration board of .inquiry in the cases of  the Komagaia's passengers have  been acting are dtclared to be valid  in every'particulur. Except in the  cases of persons who are Canadian  citizens or have a Canadian domicile  tqere is no power in any court to re  view or quash any order made by_ a  board of inquiry, as set out in section 23 of the Immigration act.  On all these points the five members of the .court, Chief Justice  Macdonald, Hon, Justices-,Irving,  Martin, Galliher and McPhillip_s  were unanimous.  Mr. Justice McPhillips, in closing  .his written;ju,dgment,v.-said he .was  of opinion that the court could make  the pronouncement that Canada is  a nation, complete in herself, with  power to pas any law which the im  periai parliament may pass-and implement such statutes, and that parliament having acted in a national  crisis, all that remained for .the  court to do, is to see that the law is  carried out.  Smith Curtis, one of, the leading  politicians of the Boundary and  Kootenay districts during pioneer  (lays, arrived in the city last Saturday from Savona fjr a brief visit.  Mr. "Curtis was minister of mines  in Joe Martin's three months', government in 1899. He was given an  auto rifle around the valley, and expressed surprise at the development  of the district When- nut otherwise  engaged while here, he kept busy  talking polities Hi> left for Vancouver Wednesday noon.      ,  METEOROLOGICAL  Charles Brown, of Vancouver, arrived in the city last Friday, and  spent a week visiting friends here.  He still owns some real estate in the  city and the valley Mr. .Brown  was formerly the leading spirit in  the Boundary Iron Works, and  while he resided here he erected  three or four of the lust residences  in the city, which are now couspic  uous monuments of his enterprise.  He also served one term as alderman in the city council.  TLY K1LLEI  Buried Under a, Fall 01 Rock  and 0round in the Granby Mine.  \V. H. Beach, the enterprising  Christina Lake merchant who built  a.private telephone line" from the  lake to.Cascade, has a deal pending  for the sale of the line. Mr. Beach  says that if the deal is consummated  he will put on a first class, excursion  steamer on the lake, as he has abundant faith that Christina lake will  become the greatest summer resort  in southern British Columbia before  many years.

The  program,.which was a varied and  lengthy one, was much appreciated  by the large number of citizens who  were present.  A. B. Tweddle, of the department  of agricultural, Victoria, was a visitor in the city on Tuesday.^ Mr.  Tweddle was formerly engaged in  the uursery and fruit growing business in this city.  The collier Storstod, which  rammed and sank the C P.R steamer Empress of Ireland at Father  Point recently, was sold on Tuesday  in the admiralty court at Montreal  for $175,000. It is understood that  the purchasers were the original  owners. The Stor3tad was held as  security for damages in the sum of  $2,000,000, the action having been  brought by the Canadian Pacific  railway, owner of the Empress,  against the collier's owners.  Premier Asquith stated in the!  house of commons last Monday that'  "the proposals for. the reforming of:  the.house of fiords. wdlrld be.pre-;  sen ted to the.

B Peterson, who returned last  week from an auto trip to the Simif-  kameen, states that the roads in the  Grand Forks district are in far bet-,  ter shape than in any other section  through which he passed.  A   fall   of  ground   in the Granby  mine at Phoenix on Sunday  mom-:  ing caught three men and an electric  ore   tram   in   No. 2   tunnel of   the  mine. J. F. MoDougall and William  Tat hum, two shift bosses, and'Frank  Riordan,   motorman, were the   victims   About 1000 tons of earth   and  rocks covered the men   and   electric  cars.    The    news    spread     rapidly  through   the   camp,   and  in a short  time the entire, hill" was   covered   by  anxions people     As soon as the  accident occured the Granby   official1-,  with CM.   Campbell,   superintendent, at their head, began    the    most  strenuous   efforts   to   remove    the  ground and put   their   big   electric  shovel at work, as well as every man  that could be used.    Mr. McDougalP  has been with the Granby  company  for nearly twelve years; Mr. Tatham  has   been   a   resident of  the camp  since   it   was., opened, and   leaves a-,  family, and -Mr.-'���������Riordan haf^been  with the company for a   long  time.  The bodies were not recovered until   Monday night.   The first body  removed from the debris was that of  Motorman   Riordan, the   head   and  legs being nearly severed  from   the  'body      A few hours of work by  the  Granby    people   then   revealed the  body   of   Shift   Boss    Frank     Mo  Dougall, which was not   badly   disfigured, but it took from early morning   on    Monday   until   about midnight to get the body of  Shift   Boss  Tatham,    and    then   only in a very  mangled condition.  The cave in of No. 2 tunnel has  practically put the Granby mine out  of business for a week or ten days,  as it will require that length of time  to remove the caved earth and put  the tunnel and electric -equipment  in shape.  Henry McIlwaine,of the Canadian  Bank of Commerce staff, Cranbrook,  arrived in the city on Wednesday to  spend his vacation with his parents,  Mr.1 and Mrs. A. Msllwaine.  When members of a family ijiiarrul,  a lot of truth leaks out.  What matter if a girl's   completion  is poor when her father is rich.  Miss Ida Gaw,   daughter   of   Mr. j  and   Mrs.  Robert   Gaw,    who   has  been attending school   at   Kingston,  Ont , for the past two years, arrived  home the first of the week. j  Lieut.-Col. and Mrs. Glossop, of j  Kettle Valley, were visitors in the j  city on Wednesday. j  Mrs. Dougherty, of the North1  Fork, loft Thursday for Spokane,1  where she will undergo an operation. '  (!. M. Fripp-'made a business,trip  to Onivilli- the first of the week.'  Protection and Corruption  Probably in no other country in  the empire have the interests of the  democracy been so studiously neglected by their chosen representatives in parliament, and a supreme  proof of that neglect is the miserable, sordid story of political chicanery and intrigue which envelops the  history of the Canadian tariff since  confederation. Today it is safe to  assert that.a very large proportion of  the politicians of both sides of the  house at Ottawa are vitally interested in stifling all attempts to raise the  economic issue.���������Grain Growers'  Guide.

Even  on the  Rocky  Mountains  reserve In  Alberta,   with   the  immense   area  of  J.3,373,856 ceres, most of which is remote from settlement, fire destroyed  -only 1,150 acres   of   young    timber,  whose present value was small, and  mature  timber to the value of $150.00.  -   The total area burnt on this reserve  was but two  one-hundredths of one  t>er cent of the above acreagge, and it  is likely, when the reports are complete from the other reserves, which  are  smaller and usually 'better protected, that the aggregate area burnt  over by fire will be no greater than  one  one-hundredth of  one  per  cent  of the total reserved area.   The significance   of  this figure  Is. apparent  by comparison "with  the corresponding figure for the National Forests in  the United State-s,   where   the   area  burnt over by fire in 1913, although J ish,  admittedly the    smallest   in    recent  years, was about 0-03 per cent .of the  total area.  That -the 'fire loss on Dominion reserves in the West has been so remarkably small is due in large measure to the fact that the Government  rangers unceasingly sought, and obtained, the co-operation of all with  whom they came in contact, whether  settler, . Indian, hunter, tourist or  packer.' The new fire-posters ask for  this co-operation instead of demanding it as.previously;* a plea for it is  printed on railway time-tables and  Dn hunting licenses; it Is secured  from homesteaders by providing them  with fire-fighting tools and by connecting rural telephone lines with ranger  Btations on forest reserves, and even  che Indians, many of whom were careless with fire, are now induced to  assist in its prevention by being pre-  Bented honorary metal badges by the.  Dominion Government. Carelessness  i's the chief cause of forest fire and by  Its elimination the greatest difficulty  !n forest fire protection is overcome.  A MATTER OF COLOR  C.P.R.  Supplies Cooks    and   .Waiters  With Complexions tc Match Dining  Cars  The C.P.R. has disclosed  a subtle ingenuity in advertising; nor did this suffer impairment in a' comparatively recent'instance.-  The company wanted,  to bo exact, 070 cooks and waiters fox-  its dining-car service last spring,   ,-lt  has tried the   American    cooks    and  waiters  by  the  painful  hundred and  found them "unreliable.     It determined to   advertise   in the '"Big Smoke."  London is    unlhiiikably    cosmopolite.  Every race under heaven has its representatives  in  the  world's  metropolis.  Ir.  a  delicate  way  the  company  announced that it wanted a certain number of fair-haired people and an equal  number of dark "comploxioned" individuals.   The papex-s began to write  about the "red-haired dining-car," and  "black-haired  dining-car"  to  such  an  extent as to cause nothing short of a  "thrill" in the general breast.   " And  the requisite-number x-esponded���������to be  exact, Indeed, there were at least 2,000  pex'sons, at one time or another, who  applied.     There was a sevei-e weeding  process, with the result that the requisite." number were employed and shipped out���������fair  and  dark-complexioned  men���������to harmonize with the setting of  the particular car to which- each shade  of color should be confined.   And it'is  the fact that the C.P.R. desires, in its  aesthetic way, to produce in each dining car what might be called a synthesis as to the color and'height and general appearance of tho men���������the idea  being in decorations and general ensemble to present a harmonious whole  for the delectation of the passengers.  The point of interest   is this ��������� that  whereas the American cooks and waiters who had aforetime been employed by the company were for the most  part unreliable, leaving after two or  three months'  employment, .the men  found in London remainedNthe   whole  season; and at this moment of the entire number 500 arc still in the employment of the company.   Some left  to better themselves; a few went back  but the greater bulk are at work quite  contented, as the commissioner sent  out recently "Answers" and who talked with the men, avouches.     These  men are Swiss,   Scandinavians,   Ger  mans to some slight degree, and Brit-  The Swiss speak at least three  languages, and are most adaptive. This  matter of help on the dining cars is  one of the serious ��������� problems   to   be  faced     by    W. .A.      Cooper,     the  manager of of the sleeping and dining  car service���������the difficulty of getting  and then retaining the right men; but  the   experiment of   going   to London  and advertising for them has proved  an unqualified success.   It seems uu-  thinkably remote to consider the big  posters' of the early days which announced, rather riotously, the advantage of the C.P.R. in the matter of gas-  tronic enjoyment.   The delicate aesth-  eticlsm which the company now pi-o-  vides marks  the apogee of advance  and elaboration.      , ':'.".  ? /������ nasal  breathing  impaired?- Doss your throat  get husky  or clogged?

They broke out at first; la little  blotches, only watery, which the child  scratched and caused to spread and form  a mass of sores. Her hands had to bo tied  to keep her from scratching the sores. Tho  eczema caused her to Itch and burn and to  be cros3 and peevish. She was disfigured  for tho time she had it. She cried day and  night from tho Irritation. Neighbors said  'she would never bo cured.  "She was given some medicine to take  Inwardly but without success. Then a  friend told mo to try Cuticura SoSp and  Ointment which I did.

Larger Yields per Cow  '"During'���������these short winter days  when many cows are dry, ��������� and the  cows that are milking are not giving  very much, would it not be wise to lay  plans for improvement of the dairy  herd? Seeing that the average  household consumer a fair quantity  of milk daily all through winter, and  seeing that the Ice cream trade is not  by any means dead during the cold  months, Is it not a pity that there is  not more good milk and sweet cream  available? Current prlces: and good  demand should prove an Inducement  to a large number of producers to go  in more ^strongly -for -winter dairying.  " "Some of the variations iii ���������yields' are  very marked; it is a''-common"thing  month after month to find groups of  cows" in 'four .adjacent -flections ���������averaging one hundred pounds of milk difference, : for instance, from ' 4 50 ���������<������������������ by  even-stages of 100 up to 760 pounds.  Many of "these poor cows ������ould easily  be giving, under, better, conditions of.  feed and care, another three or four  pounds of fat each per mpnth; after  a year or two at cow testing the herds  will probably average, as many : already have done, considerably more of  an increase than that, even as much  as"' forty or forty-five pounds in the  year extra per cow.  Dwarf Plants and Monstrous Flowers  Mr. J. A. Urban,- professor of chem-  istery at the Sorbonne, bas had the  idea of making seeds germinate after  having deprived them of their albumen.     Thus, \y bis own will, he obtains ^monstrnus     vegetables.       His  work is retui-ned in a paper read before the Academy of Sciences by tiie  eminent professor of botany, M. Gaston Bonner.     Evidently the albumen  oi a seed is not its essential part; albumen is only an elementary reserve  destined to feed the young plant until  its radicle has become strong enough  to seek for its own food.   But can the  young plant do without this alimentary reserve, M. J. Urbain shows that,  if put to the test, it can do so, but not  without suffering from this privation..  M.   Urbain's   experiments   have   been  made with seeds of the Palma Christi,  the poppy, etc.   These seeds deprived  of their albumen germinated like noi-;  mal seeds, but produced dwarf, stunted plants with modified leaves and often monstrous deformed flowers. This  research .of M. Urtain -goes to prove  the possibility of creating monstrous  plants at will.  In the same wa. the late Camille  Dax-esle pi'oduced, at will, monstrous  chicken by interfering with the normal evolution of the egg, either by varnishing a part of its surface, or by exposing it to a too strong heat.

U. 960  There is a certain middle-aged bachelor in thlB town who makes it a practice never to give a tip at a restaurant or cafo. And he boasts that the  waiters think as well of him and that  [he never leaves a table without receiving every'attention, obsequious bows  and a "Thank you, sir," from the waiter who has served him.  One who doubted this recently did a  little gum shoe act after this tipless  customer last week, to see if he was  telling the truth. And, sure enough,  when the luncheon was finished and  the exact amount of the" check paid, all  the polite things happened.  Then the amateur detective approached the waiter.  That jnan gave you no tip? ho said.  No, sir, said the waiter.  And yet you said 'Thank you, sir,* in  a loud tone..  'Yes, sir. Do you think I want other customers to know that some people don't tip?  A Chicago hypnotist has opened a  school for book agents. Most of 'em.  are post graduates in that art.

' From the quiet and  secluded home the girls have &one out  to office, store or factory to mingle  with the great crowd of workers, and  whether by brain .or muscle, to feel  the strain and fatigue of tho breadwinner. . '  This revolutionary change in the  method of lifo has 'not proved beneficial -to health and vigoi-, and in the  surging crowd you find many a pale,  anaemic face, and. many an emaciated  figure.  The blood gets thin and watery, the  digestive system becomes deranged,  the appetite fails, and the starved  nerves tell of their condition by neuralgic pains and bodily aches. Dr.  Chase's Nerve Food is needed, and  nothing can .so quickly restore health  and vigor to the body and bring back  the healthful glow to the wan cheek.

Tape worm is bred fi'om a parasite,  This parasite is a creature male and  female in one. It is of pear shape, having' two, four and six suckers. It lays  the eggs, which are only connected  together with slime. They develop  and form a body, which is the worm.  Each ' joint is an individual  having a sucker or mouth. The worm  grows much longer than the bowels  where it is located, and sometimes a  whole colony of them are found,  enough to fill a quart of solid worm,  and when put in a bucket of water  would apparently fill it. It is the  hardest task in the world to destroy  this parasite without doing injury tc  the Individual who may be s' unfortunate as, to have it, as- the -parasite  clings to the bowels, freeing itnelf  fimn the body of the, worm, and remains there to breed' another. It is  an internal demon, and causes its victim to suffer all the symptoms of disease imaginable. The cleverest physicians ax-e led to believe the patient  is suffering from some other disease  as nearly every person has different  symptoms. Some have been treated  for cancer of the bowels, consumption  of the bowels, consumption of the  lungs, chx-onic dyspepsia, nervous prostration, melancholia hypochondria, hysteria, inflammation of bowels, appendicitis, and other complaints, when one  or more;of these internal demons were  eating their lives away.  Prof. Mulveney has made the dis-'  covery to free the victim of this monster, without injury to the system, destroying the parasite as well as expelling the worm .with one dose of medicine without any previous starvation..  Visit his office, where be has in his  possession the most "wonderful collection of these death-dealing monsters in  the world, which have been expelled  from hundreds of people by his faxnous  remedy, some bottles containing colonies of worms, and anyone seeing them  cannot imagine how a person could  possibly live with them in his bowels.  It is surprising the number of people  that have them.- ' Thousands have  them and are not aware of the fact.  The letters and testimonials the Professor has in his possession are  enough to convince us of tl-is alarming  fact. Some of the most prominent  symptoms ai*e ravenous appetite, dizzy  spells, headaches, cramps i-> the bowels, a feeling of something moving in  the-bowels, also: a feeling as though  something: was crawling up tho throat.  The only certainty., of having,one in  the system is when segments or joints  are seen, which come away almost  any'. time. They are flat, and from  three-quarters of an inch to an inch  lona. which have often been mistaken  'for pin worms by those who do not  know the difference. There are many  other feelings of distress which would  take too long to enumerate., Strange to  say, some people of strong constitution  have very little distress.  Prof. Mulveney's world famous Tape  Worm Exterminator is safe, sure and  harmless. No starvation, no danger, is  not disagreeable to-take.

Scienco is advancing every  day, and fortunately a remedy has been  discovered that not only cures but prevents .Catarrh, This now treatment  "Catarrhozone" ha������ sufficient power to  kill the germs of Bronchitis, Catarrh  and Asthma. It contains pure pine  ossenrag and heallnc balaams that go  to the remotest part of the nose, throat  and lungs, carrying health-giving medication to every spot that is tainted or  weak. You don't take Catarrhozone  like cough mixture���������you inhale its  healing vapor at tho mouth and it  spreads all through tho breathing organs, soothing and curing wherever  Catarrh exists. This is nature's way  of supplying the richest balsams, tho  purest antiseptics known to science.  A sneezing cold is cured in ten min������  utes, A harsh cough is eased in an  hour, the most offensive catarrh is  thoroughly drawn from tho system.

It is a notice to  the world that Canada is a nation.  As a self-governing dominion,- according to the decision, Canada has  a right to .make and enforce laws  for the protection of her citizens.  The exclusion of undesirable immigrants is imperative in molding a  moral and vigorous nation, and -the  people will rejoice to learn that the  highesr court in the province has  decided that the federal government  has power to enact laws barring undesirables, even though; they come  from other sections of the empire,  from,lariding in this country.  Joseph Martin leaves London to  morrow for Canada. He intends to  make British Columbia his permanent home. ��������� The Liberal party of  the province does not feel inclined  to slaughter the fatted calf.

Government trade statistics for the  past fiscal year are decidedly embarrassing to Conservative arguments in  regard   to   the   **No truck-or-trade-  with-the-Yankess" propaganda   During the fiscal year,   exports  to   the  United States totalled 3200,459,373,  a gain of no less  than   ������33,348,991.  as   compared    with    the   preceding  twelve months.    Despite the'-refusal  of the Conservatives to take   advantage-of the   American efforts to  let  down the tariff barriers and give the  Canadian farmer freer access   to   the  market of   90,000,000 people, trade  has continued  to   steadily "increase  even in a year of'  comparative   depression.    Even with the tariff  barriers    still    up   against    Canadian  wheat and*oats and fish,Canada sent  last year to the United States  wheat  to the value of   $6,801,624, oats  to  the value of 86,802,403 and   fish   to  the   value  of $6,644,365     Canada  sent animals to the amount of   ������8,-  518,012 across the line   during   the  last fiscal year.

"I  got medicine from the doctor, and tried  several other remedies but nothing  helped me. Then one .of my neighbors advised me to try Dodd's Kidney  P41.1S." I bought four boxes, and they  helped almost from the first. P'have  used,nearly two dozen boxes and am  nearly cured."  That rheumatism is one "of the results of diseased kidneys is -again  shown in Mrs. Baldwin's case. She  had headaches, stiffness of the joints  and backaches, her sleep 'Was broken  and unrefreshing, and Bhe was always  tired and nervous. Her "limbs swelled and she was always thirsty. These  are all symptoms of diseased kidneys.  When she cured her kidneys with  Dodd's Kidney Pills the symptoms  vanished���������and so did the rheumatism.

Cruel,  crippling pains in the muscles .. and  joints make every movement a torture. Many people think rheumatism  is due to cold or wet weather and they  try tocure themselves by rubbing liniments on the painful parts. This is  a great mistake���������the rheumatic poison Is in the blood, and liniments and  rubbing^ cannot give more than the  most temporary relief. If you are a  victim of rheumatism or lumbago you  can only rid yourself of it by making  your blood rich and pure, for only in  this way can the poisons of rheumatism be driven from the system. Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills have cured more  cases of rheumatism than any other  disease except anaemia, just because  they make the rich, red blood that goes  right to'the root and cause of rheumatism. You cannot be well when  your blood is impure, therefore.-begin  curing your rheumatism to-day w^th  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. The follow-  , ing are the particulars of one of the  j. many thousands of cures to the credit  of this health-giving medicino.:        -  Mr. Jeremie-tfadou, St.;jerome, Que.,  says: "A few years ago I was seized  with.a severe attack of rheumatism.  The pains in my back, arms and legs  were terrible. I treated with several  doctors but they did not help me, and  as time went on I was unable to work  and began to think that I would be a  cripple for life. While in this trying  condition a friend who had been cured  of rheumatism by tho use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills advised me to try this  remedy, and I got a supply of the Pills.  I had taken the Pills for several weeks  before any improvement was noticed,  but once signs of relief came the improvement from that time on was rapid, and'I joyfully continued taking the  Pills until every vestiage of the trouble  disappeared. ��������� No one but a similar  sufferer can imagine the gratitude I  feel for this relief from pain, and because I have since enjoyed perfect  health I urge other rheumatic sufferers to give this medicine a trial."  You can get Dr. Williams'.Pink Pills  from any medicine dealer or by mail at  50 cents a box or six boxes for $2.50  from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,  Brockville, Ont.  - She���������I am afraid you couldn't' support me in the stylo to which I have'  been accustomed.

As boys'study with a view to  an object, such.as a profession or a  business, I studied with a view to visiting the' Eternal City. I learned to  speak Italian and Latin. I read the  books of Roman writers that have  been preserved to us for twenty centuries In the language in which they  were written.

I was myself seized with a de-  elre to Dnd some of the treasures that  adorned Rome In the days of her grandeur My object In life may not have  b'������en practical, but It Is not only practical objects that aro absorbing.  I was not permitted to. visit tbo land  of my dreams until I was twenty-seven  years old. Then 1 found myself in possession of property which gave me an  Income of a - few tbousandp a year.  Within a month after the* receipt of  my patrimony I was in Rome.  I bad been more than a year In Rome  and -had studied the references to a  number prvillas that bad been the residences of ancient Romans with'a view  to selecting one to search for. Finally,  i'stumbled on a record of a very rich  man, Manllus Qulntus PIso, who bad  mado his money as an auctioneer.  Mention was mado of n mania coming upon him after he acquired wealth  for collecting beautiful works of art.  The author I read stated that his villa  contained more valuable statues tbun  any other of his time. Among others  ���������was mentioned a statuo of Diana that  Iiad cost Its owner a fabulous sura.  ���������The location of the villa w^s given as  among the hills lying to tho south of  Rome across the Campagna. A small  stream flowed past It: n high hill was  directly behind It. Th.oro were other  references to the contour of the surrounding country calculated to help  one' searching for the site. Theso I  studied and, not content with one reference, hunted till I found another description of the vllln at* It bud been bo-  fore its-destruction during ono of the  earlier Invasions of the (Joths.   .

I spent a week hunting for a location  'that fitted tho description I hadgalncd  (from the books 1 had read Then 1  spent another week doing somo surface  excavating.

LZfifcrnorJ"'  The vok-o came rrmn iic-mml me. 1  turned quickly and saw a man standing with a rifle In his hands, which he  could bring to his shoulder In a moment. 1 had been aware of tho danger  attending being out alone In. tho country In'Italy and had a revolver strung  to each hip. But before I could use  either of thorn I would bo killed. The  , man covering me was so respectable  looking.that I could not realize at onco  that he was a bandit. But ho would  havo had ho object In being ready to  shoot mo if ho were not  '^1   presume,"   ho  said  hi   excellent  Italian, "that you are .doing archaw)-  logical work. Are you awnre tbat ex-  .cavations are In tho hands of the government?"  "I' am," I replied, "but I am hoping  to make a discovery that will surprise  the'government and thus gain immunity from having broken tho law."  "I sympathize with you, signor, but  as a good citizen It is my duty to inform- upon' you." '       - -   ' -   "  "What sum would' induce you to refrain?" .  "Yon are an American, I fancy, from  your looks, your dress and tho accent  "with which yon speak Italian. Americans are all very rich."  "I'liave'but 10.000 francs a year.'.'  "That Implies a -capita! of 200.000  francs. Surely you can divide with  one who has been unfortunate."  "You mean, I suppose, that I am In  your power, and you demand a ransom  of 100.000 francs?"  "You have stated the case correctly."  I stood thinking for a few minutes  what I could do. I had no funds in  Italy. The interest on my money invested in America was sent me quarterly. -1 had spent nearly all of my  funds of the present quarter, and It  would be two months before I received  another remittance. 1 explained this  to tho bandit, but it did not appear to  make much impression upon him.  "I have never seen an Italian ban-,  dit," I said, "but you don't fulfill my  Idea of one. You look like a gentleman."  I thought I could see him wince.  "You are a gentleman." 1 continued,  "who has met with misfortune."  "You are right, signor."  "May I ask the cause of your being  what you arc?"  "Games of hazard.' I was Intending  to follow a line something like that  you a re. engaged In, but 1 not only lost  my patrimony.'1 lost money for othersf  1 became an outcast" "  There was a tinge of sadness in hl9  tone as he spoke this which induced  me to proceed:  ��������� "How would you like to return for a  brief season to your original or your  Intended occupation? I believe that I  am on the track of a buried villa.that  formerly contained valuable works of  art I would be happy to havo you  Join mo."  His eye lighted up. Tho Italian,  whatever he is.

'  He astounded me by telling me to  keep my weapons and, uncocking his  rifle, slung it on his back. Then we  started out to pace the 300 yards, mov  Ing at nn angle with each other of  about twenty-five degrees. After par-.  Ing tho distance each began to dig.  Wo found nothing but dirt whero we  began, but we made together some  fifty holes In an area of about a thousand feet In circumference. About sunset I beard my companion call to me.  I went to him and found that he bad  come upon a pavement. He had been  digging in a depression and had gone  down nbout'four feet from the surface.  Fortunately the moon rose before the  sun set. and, anxious to go as far as  possible with our work before attracting attention, we'began to throw up  dirt in earnest It was soon evident  from the marble:pavement we uncovered that wo had struck something fine  and bud not gone far before wo came  to what. proved to be the iihpluvlum  (basin), which was in the center of all  antique Roman houses. But at the  time ^to exhumed only a small portion  of it By midnight we had come upon  snveral statues, but they were broken  In small bits., Wo worked on, and by  dawn I struck a pair of marble.feet.  Carefully removing the earth from  sbout a statue lying flat on the ground,  I came upon a quiver and a bow. Tb������  drapery was femlnlno. I hurried on,  boplug that I bad struck tho Diana of  which l Baa reaa. my uopes were confirmed on reaching tho head, where  above tho forehead we found the star  which always accompanied representations of tblsdivlnity. ���������   '  Tbat was as far as we deemed it  prudent to go. I believed that the discovery we had made would greatly Interest tho government to which I proposed to turn It over. After receiving  information about my companion that  would enable mo to find him 1 hurried  to Rome and to tbe office of the official  charged with excavations, tie listened  to my story with wonder and delight  and when I had finished asked mo  what I would expect for my find.  I told him of tbo bandit by whom I-  had been aided, and if tho government  would pardon him and give him soma  position that would enable him. to  make an honest living I would feel re-  .paid for my discovery.  There is nothing more to toll except  that the statue we unearthed proved  a splendid work of art and was very  little damaged. It was removed to  the new' gallery on the Esquillne hill  opened by the government.

The dishcloth should be of  Itrong linen. Stair crash is excellent  for this purpose, as it will become soft  ���������rfough to be flexible and is very dur-  tble. Make these cloths about ten  Inches long, of narrow crash and Jicin  :hem to prevent the edges from fraying when they are put through the  laundry.  First of all, the dishes should be  gathered up and properly scraped, then  beld for a moment under the hot water faucet to take off the first coating  5f grease. Any dishes or knives and  forks used for flsh should be carefully  ivlped with paper, as dishcloths are infected by flsh immediately.  Put the dishes in hot suds.. Use the  iish mop freely and transfer them tot  tbe other pan to be rinsed. Let this  second pan be very large and havo g  wooden drainer fitted in two inchefl  from the bottom, so that the boiling  water poured over the dishes will  drain off them. This is the best anif  safest way of draining.  In washing the silver use a silvct  soap and thus avoid the weekly silvet  cleaning day, with tbe added Induce*  Qient that the silver Is constantly  bright  Wash spiders, pots aud kettles scp������  arately and with an iron dishcloth,'  Pots and kettles should be washed in������  side and outside and thoroughly wiped  before being set away. Tho coffee pot  and tea kettle should he boiled out at  least once a week with soda and water  to keep them tastelessly clean.  Walnuts as Food.  A London medical journal recently  published some Interesting facts, concerning walnuts as food.    According  to this authority, "thirty large walnut  kernels contain as much food value ao  cvro and three-quarter pounds of lean  beef."   With beef worth approximately 20 cents a pound, this means thai  each walnut is worth about 2 cents as  a food product as compared with beet  That these facts will greatly enconr-  ago the production and consumption  of walnuts is hardly to be expected.  There Is some consolation, however, la  tho thought that when meat has become a luxury, to be indulged only by  the  rich,   the general  consumer  can  keep his dinner very well���������somewhat  likeTeter Pumpkin Eater's wifa~In ft  walnut shell.
