THIRTEENTH YEAR-No. 8
GRAND FORKS, B. C, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 19, Iff
Predicts a Bumper Fruit
Crop for the Province
Next Jfear
Thinks a Good Market for
Soft Fruits Oan Be Developed on Prairies
That tbe fruit growers of British
Columbia will bave a most promising market open to t etn by the
shipment of produce, especially soft
fruits, to the prairie provinces hy express in carload lota, is the opinion
of R- M. Winslow, provincial horticulturist, wbo bas just returned
from Ottawa and Toronto, where he
conferred with Hon. Martin Burrell,
federal minister of agriculture; Hoo.
W. T, White, midister of finance,
•nd other Dominion officials, and
also at ended the meeting of the
executive of tbe National Fruit
Growers' association.
Mr. Winslow on his trip accompanied W. C. Ricardo, president of
the British Columbia Fruit Grow-
en' association, and tbe other British Columbia representatives oo tbe
executive ot tbe National. Fruit
Growers' association, and aa a result of their visit it is probable tbat
•n active campaign will be begun to
develop the shipment of soft fruits
by . express from the Boundary,
Kootenay and Okanagan districts
to the smaller towns of the prairie
provinces next season.
"The apple crop in the Pacific
coast district protui.es t*> be a big
one in 1914," aaya Mr. Winslow,
' and the opening up ol a new marketing centre would give a valuable
stimuloua to tbe fruit growing in
dustry in British Columbia. Tbe
large crops have come in alternate
yeara. The 1913 crop, while larger
than 1912, was not up to its possibilities, and 1914 is expected to be
proportionally as mucb a dumper
orop as came in 1912. Added to
this, tbe setting of fruit buds gives
promise of an exceptional yield next
year. The trees have matured
wonderfully well and, as a rule, tbe
soil is full of moisturo, a combination ot conditions calculated to
bring the trees through the winter
safely and to start tbem vigorously
io the spring.
"Tbe growers already enjoy low
freight rates and special privileges
(or'tbe shipment of tbeir fruit, and
W. B. Lanigan, assistant freight
manager of the C.P.R., promised
us tbat he would lend active and
practical assistance in marketing
our fruit and in developing market
organizations. Tbe president^! the
Dominion Express company also
gave us assurances that he would
aid us in developing tbe trade in
carload lots by express from points
nt.s interior of British Columbia
to Alberta and the prairie provinces,
•'Mr. Kimmins, manager ot tbe
N, D. Smith Frnit company, which
hae developed an enormous fruit
business from tbe Niagara district
to cities in the Canadian middle
west and the Maritime provinces,
shipped  last year  140 carloads to
Manitoba and 180 carloads to tbe
Marstime provinces by express.
Most of these shipments were sent
direct to the retailers, especially in
the smaller towns.
"The advantages ot shipping by
express in carload lots are many, as
not only does the consignment arrive iu fresher condition, but tbe
full flavor of the soft fruits is assured by allowing them to ripen on
the trees before gathering. Tben
again, this method eliminates one
and somotiines two middlemen,
whioh means an increased profit to
the grower."
The Fruit Marks net was also up
for discussion, and a number of
minor changes in the act were
brouubt forward snd discussed, and
these will be submitted to tbe general meeting of the National Fruit
Growers' association, which takes
place in Ontario next July. It was
felt that a stricter enforcement of
the act was needed, especially with
regard to imported fruit, and it is
probable that tbis question will be
brought to the attention of the Dominion authorities in tbe near future.
Before visiting Ottawa Mr. Winslow was present at tbe Land Show
at Chicago, where, he reports, British Columbia had a large and most
attractive exhibit. Three lectures
were given every day during the
two weeks tbe exhibition remained
open and tbe audiences, numbered
about 300 at eacb lecture.
"Tbe beat of the building somewhat wilted the fruit," says Mr.
Winslow, but it made a splendid
display and was certainly one ot tbe
features of tbe show. Moat ofthe
inquiries came from men seeking
cheap general farming lands sucb aa
obtain in northern British Columbia, but tbe exhibit and tbe lectures,
wbich were accompanied with moving pictures, cleareu up a good many
misconceptions among the visitors
with regard to tbe possibilities of
this province. On British Columbia
day more tban 200 boxes of fruit
were distributed free among the
visitors."
' The Best Christmas Gift
The very best Christmas gift you
can make yourself, your wife and
all tbe members of your family is a
year's subscription to that great
paper, The Family Herald and
Weekly Star of Montreal. It costs
only one dollar and its visit each
week will make your household
happier than ever beiore. No home
in Canada should be without tbat
great paper during 1914—Every
issue is worth the money.

McBride's New Railway Policy
He is one who sees far ahead and
has tbe courage to devote wisely
conserved energies to the accomplishment of development works
that will benefit, not only tbe present, but future generations and
make for the increasing solidarity
of British Columbia and ber sister
states.—Colonist.
What, already 1 We had thought
ten thousand swords would have
leaped from their scabbards lo
avenge even a look which threatened
us with annexation! And yet there
it is in cold type—''British Columbia and her siBter staten," meaning
of course Washington, California
and Oregon. We always feared that
Standard Oil railway proposition,
that north and south business, would
be disastrous to our national integrity, hut we did not imagine that
the mere fond contemplation of it
wonld ho affect our contemporary as
to inspire it to speak of "British
(.olumbia and her sister states."
We blame it on that University of
California degree conferred upon Sir
Richard laxi year. It was lhat
which turned his adoring gaze upon
the stately capitol at Washington.
And such iiuperiilits, too?— Vic-

Immigration Regulations
The new order in council respecting immigration is couched in the
following terms:
"II. R. H the governor-general in
council nnder and by 'virtue of the
provisions of subsection 3 of section
38 of tbe Immigration act, 9-10 Edward VII, and in view of tbe present overcrowded conditions ot tbe
labor market in British Columbia, is
pleased to make tbe following order:
'From and after the date hereof
and until alter the 31st day of
March, 1914, the landing at any
port of entry in British Columbia
hereinafter specified of any immigrants of any of tbe following classes
namely, artisans, laborers (skilled or
unskilled) shall be, and the same is
hereby prohibited.' "
The order then specifies all of the
ports of entry in British Columbia
coming under ite terms.

Mr. Bowser Says It Amounts
to $13,400,000 in This
Province
Borrowed $1,460,000 Simply for the Reason It
Was Wanted
Attorney General Bowster, at the
banquet in the Commercial cluK
Vancouver, Tuesday night, given h*-
the Vancouver lumber and timber
men to the delegates to the Western
Forestry and Conservation association, a great many from the United
Statee, undertook to explain tbe
reason for the British Columbia government in November borrowing in
London (1,460,000, and ne gave as
his explanation the fact tbat the
Liberals, or, as he termed them, "his
enemies," were criticizing the government for this particular financial turn.
Hon. Mr. Bowser said tbat be believed tbe time and place opportune
to speak on the question.
He gave tbe following  figures in-
leading up to the reason for the new
loan:
Estimate of 1912-13 showed—
Expenditures tl6,200,000
Revenue  10,200,000
Deficit 15,900.000
Estimates for 1913-14 showed—
Expenditures $17,800,000
Revenue .'  10,300,000
Deficit $ 7,500,000
Totaldeficit   13,400,000
The total amount to be expended
on public works—
1912-13 S 8.200.UOO
1913 14    9,600,000
Total  117,800,000
In otber words, tbe attorney-
general explained, the expenditures
on public works amounted to 50 per
cent of the total sums voted. Actual
figures are nol yet to hand lo show
what increase has taken place in the
revenue over the estimate, he explained. For general purposes it
was found necessary to issue six-
months' treasury bills on November
28, wbicb has netted the province
11,460,000. The short loan will,
in all probability, give sufficient
funds to enable tbe government to
complete its program ol expenditures up to March 31, 1914.

WHEN   THE   EARTH   QUAKES
Stresses and Strains to Which Our
Globe is Subjected
When tlie stairs crealt and the furniture gives out mysterious crackling
sounds at nlgbt we sometimes sit up
la bed and wonder it there ls a burglar about, but lt doesn't occur to us
that what we really hear is an earth-
o.uake en a small scale. The nlgbt
air has cauaed the wood to contract
with a snap, thus accounting for the
alarming Bounds. This is just exactly
what tbe earth is doing periodically.
To a microbe, reposing on the polished surface of the table, this disturbance is probably as violent as an
r-arthnuake is to a human being.
An earthquake ls a terrible thing.
It comes without warning. It is over
before one knows which way to fly,
and Its fury can be abated by no
man.
Yet to the geologist earthquakes .are
only symptoms. They are not causes
io much as results—results of great
stresses and strains within the earth
thai cause dippings and sltdings from
time to time. If the rocks on the
shell ot the earth slip and grate
sgalnst eacb other so much as an Inch
along a fissure ten miles In length a
Shiver is felt. A slip of fifteen feet
along a course of 200 miles sufficed
to bring about the terrible San Francisco earthquake and fire.
These strains and stresses accumulate steadily .wltihln the earth. The
point at which they havo once found

successive movements Its sides become more and more displaced. Rock
layers, mineral veins coal seams that

SPIRIT OF THE AIR
It Permeates the Entire Being of the
Flying Bird
The Uii'd Is little more than a drift
of the all* brought Into form by plumes
and tlle air Is In all Its quills. It
breathes through its whole frame and
tasti and glows with air in its flying,
like brown flames, it rests upon the
air, subdneB It, surpasses it, outraces
it—11. Is alt-, conscious of Itself, conquering, ruling itself. Also ln tbe
throat of the bird Is given the voice
of the air. All that ln the mind Itself
i Is weak, wild, useless ln sweetness, ls
knit together lu Its song.
As we may Imagine the wild form
of the cloud closed into the perfect
form of the bird's wings, so the wild
voice of the cloud Into Its ordered and
commanded voice, unwearied, rippling
through the clear heaven ln Its gladness, interpreting all intense passion
through tbe soft spring nights, bursting Into acclaim and rapture of choir
at daybreak or lisping and twittering
.among tbo boughs and hedges,
through the heat of day, like little
winds that only make the cowslip
bells shako antl ruffle the petals ot
the wild rose.
Also upon the plumes ot the bird
arc put the colors o: the air; on these
the gold of tlie cloud that cannot be
gathered by any covetousness-, the rubles of tbe cloud, tbat are not the
pride of Athena, but are Athena; tbe
vermilion of the cloud bar, and the
flame of the cloud creBt, and the snow
of the cloud and its shadow, and the
melted blue of thc deep wells of the
sky—all these, seized by the creating
spirit and woven by Athena herself
into films and threads of plume, with
wave upon wave following and fading
along breast and throat and opened
wings. Infinite as the dividing of the
foam and the sifting of the sea sand,
even the white down of the cloud
seeming to flutter up between the
stronger plumes—seen, but too soft
for touch.
And bo tlie spirit ot the air is put
into and upon tbls created form, and

the symbol of divine help, descending

at all must relate In some way to
guns and dogs. A year or so ago a
New York man had occasion to go to
London to meet a British financier to
put the finishing touches to a matured
business proposition. He arrived a
couple ot days before the 12th ot August. Tho financier was . not In his
place of business. No, said his chief
clerk; he has gone for the grouse
shoot. He will not talk business
with anyone. I do not think be will
see you at all, sir.
■But, said the New Yorker, I bave
crossed the Atlantic for no other pur
pose than to see him. This business
will not take more than half an hour
of his time, and then I am off for
home again.
I should advise against your going
to his bome, sir. He would not receive anybody at this time. He will
attend to no business.
But-tbo New Worker thought differently. He went to the country bome
of the financier. A burly butler met
him at the door. To him the New
Yorker gave bis card. It was promp-
ly returned to him.
The master, said the butler, will
see no one. He sets out tor the
grouse shooting tomorrow. He says
to call, please, In a fortnight.
And the New Yorker was compelled
to remain two weeks longer until the
Englishman returned trom his hunt,
wben the business was finished ln
twenty minutes.
A society woman, who was passing

Why 8a Called
"'bat was the reason for our oflice
getting its name of tbe Dead Letter
innce in the Returned Letter Office.
Well, It was originally started In order to return to the senders all letters, etc., addressed to people who
turned out to be dead. The need for
sttcn an arrangement became evident
from the number.ot valuable enclosures contained ln sucb missives. And
that the old tradition atlll lingers in
the department Is evident from the
fact that the bags containing returned
letters are black ln color.
Yes, there are people who imagine
us to be mysteriously connected with
death itself, and some time back we
received a peculiar letter from one ot
them. Within a week of having a
letter returned to her a certain person living in the same bouse had
died, and consequently the writer, evidently associating her friend's death
directly with us, begged us ln future
never to send back letters again, but
to -burn them Instead.

A WONDERFUL DISCOVERY
An eminent scientist, the other day,
gave his opinion that the most wonderful discovery ot recent years waa
she, discovery ot Zam-Buk. Just
think! As soon as a single thin iayer
of Zam-Buk ls applied to a wound or
a sore, such injury ls insured against
blood poison 1 Not one species ot
microbe has been found that Zam-uua
does not kill I
Then again. As soon as Zam-Buk
Is applied to a aore, or a cut, or to
skin disease, lt stops ths smarting.
That ls why children are such friends
if Zam-Buk. They care nothing tor
he science of the thing. All they
{now Is that Zam-Buk stops their
jaln. Mothers should never forget
his.
Again. As soon as Zam-Buk Is applied to s wound or to a diseased
part, tbe cells beneath the skin's surface are so stimulated that new
healthy tissue Is quickly formed. This
forming ot fresh healthy tissue from
lelow ls Zam-Buk's secret ot healing.
The tissue thus formed ts worked up
o the surface and literally casts off
he dlseued tissue above It. Tbls ls
vhy Zam-Buk cures are permanent.
Only the other day Ur. Marsh, ot
tOl Delorlmler Ave., Montreal, called
jpon tbe Zam-Buk Co. and told them
that for over twenty-flve years he
had been a martyr to eczema. His
hands were at one time so covered
with teres that he had to sleep In
gloves. Four years ago Zam-Buk wu
Introduced to him, and ln a few

"I formerly drank so much coffee
that my nervous system was almost
a wreck." (Tea Is Just as. lnjurloiij
because It contains caffeine, the drug
found in coffee). . "My physician told
me to quit drlnklni. It but I had to
have something, so I tiled Postum.
"To my great surprlt ■> 1 saw quite
a change ln my nerves In about 10
days. Thnt waa a year ago and now
my nerves are steady and I don't have
those bilious sick headaches whicli I
regularly had while drinking coffee.
"Posttt i seems to have body-build-
Ing properties and leaves the head
clear. And I do not have the bad
taste In my mouth when I get up
mornings. When Postum ls boiled
good and strong, it is far better In
taste than coffee. My advice to coffee drinkers Is to try Postum and be

A Pleasant Purgative.—Parmelee's
Vegetable Pills are so compounded as
to operate on both the stomach and
the bowels, bo that they act along
the whole alimentary and excretory
passage. They are not drastic in
their work, but mildly purgative, and
the pleasure of taking them ls only
equalled by the gratifying effect they
produce. Compounded only of vegetable subBtances the curative qualities
of which were fully tested, they afford
relief without chance ot Injury,    rr

Another Cats Where Lift Was Saved
and Health Restored by
Nerviline
We have all read and heard of the
agonies of sciatica, but only those who
have been tortured by this dread malady can fully appreciate what lt must
mean to be cured after years ot suffering.
It ls because he feels lt his solemn
duty to tell to the world bis faith ln
.-erviHne that Victor P, Hires makes
the following decaration. "For three
years I was In the Royal Mall service,
and In all kinds of weather had to
meet the night trains. Dampness,
cold, and exposure brought on sciatica that affected my left side. Some
times an attack would come on that
made me powerless to work. I wat
so nearly a complete cripple that 11
had to give up my Job. I was ln despair, completely cast down, because
the money I had spent on trying to
get well was wasted. I was speaking to my chemist one day, and he recommended 'Nerviline.' I had thlt
good liniment rubbed on several times
a day and got relief. I continued Oils
treatment four montha and was cured.
I havo used all kinds of Unlmentt,
and can truthfully say that Nerviline
ls tar stronger, more penetrating and
infinitely better than anything else
far relieving pain. I urge everyone
with lumbago, neuralgia, rheumatism,
or sciatica, to use Nerviline. I know
lt will curo them."

FRIDA\, DECEMBER 19, 1913
The Sun extends the compliments of the season to its
readers and patrons.
The snow this winter appears to be as evanescenf as
the British Columbia surplus.
The managing director of
one of Vancouver's leading
dailies is a woman. And yet
the men opposed to equal suffrage say that the women lack
brains to vote intelligently.
Christmas is the season
when the text of many sermons is "Peace on earth and
goo.l will to all men." Instead
of only emphasizing this subject at this particular time, it
would be a blessing to humanity if the preachers would
expound the doctrine every
Sabbah in the year. War is
a survival of the brutal instincts of man which has been
handed down from generation
to generation since he lived
in a barbaric state. We
shall never be able to call
ourselves fully civilized until
wars are but a memory. There
is less sense in governments
offering premiums, as some
are doing at the present day,
as an inducement to their subjects raise large families, and
then, after they are grown up,
have them maimed or killed
by engaging in cruel and ruinous wars, then there would be
in a man building himself a
dwelling and then set fire to
it in order, to give himself employment in rebuilding it, because the latter operation
only destroys property, which
can be replaced, while wars
destroy life, devastates entire
countries, and cause untold
misery and suffering. Yet
who would call the man that
burned his house for the sake
of obtaining work sane? Mexico today is a horrible example
of the inhuman brutality of
war. A few months ago the
Balkan states furnished an
equally revolting picture. The
man engaged in fomenting
strife between nations should
thrown into a madhouse.
From an economic standpoint
alone universal peace would
be an incalculable blessing.
1 In some of the military-ridden
(nations of Europe nearly
every man who works has to
support one idle soldier, besides being taxed for munitions of war. It should be
the duty of the pulpit and the
press to advocate peace at all
times.
The man who has never
boen criticized has never done
anything worth talking about.
Of course you will be adversely criticized. The only
remedy is a certain deafness
that you may use at discretion.
It is better to have no reputation at all than to have
one that you can't lose.

Origin of Iron Duke
The iron Duke, of course, was Wellington,, but ho came by the nickname
ln a roundabout way. He was never
so called until long after Waterloo.
An Iron steai..shlp, a novelty at the
time, was built In the Mersey and
named the Duke of Wellington, and so
the vessel came to be known as the
Iron Dake, tho transition being easy
and obtlotts. It was the duke's union of resolution and physical energy
which made the popular name for the
Mersey nullt steamship to fit him like
a perfect cap. Such, at least, Is the
oxplniia'ion of his biographer, Sir Herbert Maxwell.

Gladdens Those Who Regain New
Health and Strength
When the glow ot boalth comes
back to sallow cheeks; wben languid
weakness gives place to vigor; when
you notice some pale, exhausted invalid restored to active health—enquire.
More than likely you will Snd the
cure to have been yet another of the
thousands already wrought by Dr.
Williams' Pink PIUs. Headache an.1

raatism, eczema and disfiguring eruptions, and the ailments of growing
girls and women all dlsappoar when
the veins are filled wltb the new, rich
red blood Dr, Williams' Pink PIUs actually make. Here is one Instance
among thousands; Mr. F. Auhford,
Halleybury, Ont., says: "Some years
ago I completed a lengthy term of service ln India, tbe last three yonrs being spent ln tbo beautiful but treacherous Posbawar Valley. Ague and
dengue fever were rife, and although
I was fortunate enougb to escape a
severe attack ot eltber, on my return
home it soon becamo apparent that
tbe enervating climatic conditions had
left their ravages on my constitution.
In short the reaction had set In, and
Inexorable nature was exacting a severe toll from years ot strenuous labor. My first-warning ot tbe impending breakdown were sever pains ln
the back of tbe head.and eyes, Insomnia, irritability, a general anaemic
condition and an indefinable nervousness. Life had lost Its zest, work became Impossible and companionship
Intolerable. It really seemed tbat I
was swiftly passing to tbat stage
where nervousness ends and Insanity
begins, when by chance I read an advertisement ot Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. I confess I was skeptical ot
them doing, what doctors had failed
to tlo, but concluded that the cost waa
small, and perhaps, the cbance In
their favor, and so decided to try
them. To my Joy there was soon an
Improvement, and a continuance ot
tlie treatment effected a complete
cure. I was now as fit and as healthy as any man and am ever grateful
tliat the lucky perusal of an advertisement brought to my notice the wonderful curative properties of Dr. Williams Fink PIUs."

TROUBLE WITH

When tbe nerves become exhausted

• The dog walked off fcry cheerfully
in tbe boy's society. He bad got very
tired, even lf be waa a dog, at gazing
Into the window at tbe somber stock

went serenely for two blocks. The dog
was glad be didn't need anything In

came sn interruption. A policeman
beckoned to Humpy to halt and tben
ssld: *■
"Mo laddlebnck, you cnn consider

"Who pinched me?" ssked Humpy.
"The undersigned did and does. Yoa

"Tben I'll run tbe kid In for deceiving me!" roared tbo officer.
"But I didn't deceive you," replied
Humpy. "1 told you the truth and you
deceived yourself."
"Then it's for coining nloug bere
wltb a dog that I'll run you In!"
But be listened to tbe ndvlce of two
or three men and hit Humpy a cuff on
Ibe car and told lilm to go on.
Tbere was a grocery on lho corner
two blocks farther on, and as the boy
and dog reached It tbe proprietor rushed out and called:
"Hey, you boy, wbero you got dot
dog?"
"It's Mr. Bangs' dog," replied
Humpy.
"Ho vlina no soocb tblng! Dot spitz

"I say he's a dasbbound, and"—
And away dashed tbo dog to meet
tbe old woman. He Jumped against
her and knocked ber Into tbo gutter.
Then he dashed across tbo street and
ran a cat up a tree. Then he dashed
back and bit tbe grocer on tbe leg.
"Is it yonr mother-in-law's dog?"
asked Humpy;
"Not on my Hfes!" shouted ths
grocer as ho danced around.
"Is lt a spitz?"
"No, not He vbas some dnsbnwny

Three Blocks of Quiet.
For tbree blocks more Humpy and
bis charge-got along without nn adventure. Tbey they ran across a tobacconist standing at tho door of bis shop
smoking d two-for-flve that be bad just
invented to sell ss a straight ten center.
"By George!" he oxclnlmed ns be
stepped ont "but It seems good to see
my dog again."
"It's not your dog," replied Huthpy
as he tried to pass on.
"What! What! Not my dog? Don'l
try to bluff It out, yon young tlog
stealer! Nero was stolen from me two
months ngo. If you were not tbe thief
bow did you come by blm?"
"ne belongs to Mr. Bangs, tbo undertaker of Acorn street"
"Never!"
"And I'm leading blm bome."
"Illght you arc. You hnvu led blm
right bore to bis home, and here's a
nickel for you. Mcbbo you nro an honest boy after nil."
"But yon can't hnvo lilm. If he wns
your dog wouldn't bo wag bis tall at
you? Ho hasn't wagged It once."
"That's 'cnuse be cipects a licking
for running away."
With tbst ha tried lo grab thc chain
away, and tbe dog lilt blm on tbo hnnd
nnd ran Into bis open shop. There were
four men st work ln (here, and he
gnve each ono a nip and knocked over
two sbow cases. Then bo mn down tbe
street balf a block and bit n girl
sweeping off tho sidewalk. Then he
followed up a baker's wngon nnd bit
thc horse on tho leg. Ho wns nfter
an old woman with a mnrket basket
when the tobacconist shouted:
"You fool of n boy, why don't you
call off your dog?"
Humpy Turns Homeward.
"Yon satd It wns your dog," replied
Humpy.
"But I lied nbout It."
"Well, thero be goes, nnd I'm going |
home."
"Hold on! Hold ou! Here's Sre or
six people of ns that may go inml. We
wnnt to know ahotil Hint dog."
But Humpy took to his heels snd
was soon beyond calling. Tbree hours
after leaving the bouse he was back
home and saying: —
"It's bot enough to sunstrlke a feller."
"Ob. you nre home, eh?" queried his
mother. "Did you see Mrs. Carson?'
"Oh. gee!"
"You dldu't go there?"
"Clean forgot It"
"Well, I wanted that old skirt top-

THE FORBIDDEN FRUIT.
Maybe It Was a Qulnee Eve AU is
ths Garden ef Eden.
Wby and bow it bas happened that
tbe apple bas been spoken of as ths
fruit tbat waa forbidden ia tbe Garden
of Eden Is one of tbe great puzzles ot
biblical scholara. Tho fact Is tbat la
Genesis III., wbere tbe Incident of the
eating ot this fruit of the "tree of
knowledge of good and evil" Is mentioned, no nsmu whatever Is given te
fbam fruit All tbat ls said Is: "And
When the woman saw that tbe ties
was good for food, and that It was
pleasant to tbe eyes, and a tree to be
desired to make one wise, sbe took ot
the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave
also unto ber husband wltb ber; and
he did eat"  (Verse 0,1
In fact scholars doubt very seriously
whether it was tho apple at all.  They
suggest that all evidence points to It
having been the quince, tbe fritgranct
of which was  beld   In   the  highest
esteem by the Orientals. Another point
I In favor of the quince ls that It Is the
I fruit which was sacred to Venus, the
! goddess of love, and In n grent mnny
j of tbe ancient writings tbe quince Is
i very frequently mentioned ln this manner.    In Babylonia  Isbtar took  ths
place of Venus ln tbe Roman mythology, and lt should be remembered that
the story of tbe creation originated
With the Babylonians.    All evidence
seems to point nway from tbe appls
having been the "forbidden fruit" and
toward tbe quince as having been tbat
fruit of tbe "tree ot knowledge uf good

Dressing the Bsby.
Mothers seem to -be divided ln their
opinion of bow to dress the baby, bat
their ideas are generally so extreme
that tbey can easily be divided into
two classes—tbe sensible, who believe
ln simplicity, and tbe foolish, wbo try
to see bow fancifully tbey can dress
tbelr little tots.
Tbe elegance of baby's clotbes should
always bo Interpreted In fineness und
not by fanclfulness. If Its little slips
are to bo the most beautiful tbey
should bc of tbe finest hnnd woven lingerie cloth and mude so daintily that
tbo eye can scarcely perceive tbe stitches in their narrow seams. That Is
real beauty and luxury for the baby.
Tbo baby's first slips arc tbe prettiest
ln tbo plain bishop style—finished witb
very narrow Valenciennes lace edging
around the neck and sleeves and briar
stitching at tbo top of Its bem. For
"beat" wear you tuny wnnt a slightly
moro fanciful dress, with tiny hand
embroidered yoke ln tbe front marrow
tucks running tu the neck In tbe back)
and dainty embroidered flowers strewn
bere and tbere above tlle bem. Ot
course hemming always makes a desirable finish at tbe seams and hi not
ornate.
The Infant's petticoats should be Just
as fine and plain ns its slips And la
winter Its "heavy" petticoats should
bc of the finest Trench flannel, so that
tbey will not wasb together and be.
come weighty and balky. Tbe flannel
petticoats should be finished wltb brier stitched hems. All petticoats should
be made wltb little waists or wld*
waistbands,

Wltb "highly strong children tbere Is
often a readiness to pick up nervous

be well fed snd kept as much ss possible in tbe open air. to lead a quiet
life without excitement and wltbont

Mothers, don't be too resdy te think
that your boy shows s want of trusl
In you lf be occasionally keeps s secret or omits to tell you every little
thing that he bas done. Many boys
are very reserved Tbey cannot bear
to speak of what tbey feel deeply.

not want to force bla confidence. Tbea

extravagant statements about their
methods and cures. My record of

proof of my ability to affect a cure,
when a cuae in possible.
No man can afford to consult
any but the best in regard to his
physie-il welfare. Life and hap
pines* depend on good health. I
have cured thousands of men aud
I can cure ynu, if your case is
curable.
MY OFFER! Absolutely free expert medioal examination and consultation. Absolute guarantee of complete cure of every case I undertake, and moderate price.   Call on or write for booklet to
