Edible Birds' Nests
The uninitiated are apt to think of
birds' nest soup as a most disgusting
stew ot twlgs,~feathers and what not. y
As a matter of tact, the nest used by f
the Chinese Is a very delicate, semi-
transparent, gelatinous substance,
built by the Bwallowlllte birds known
as tbe Salanganc. Tho mists are
..found in tho Islands about Slam and
the Malay archipelago, and tbe harvest In the IMP *as eighteen thousand pounds, valued at over $100,000.
It used to be thought that, the nest
was formed of inspissated saliva se-
reted by the highly devoloped glands
pf the bird. Now it Is known that the
nest Is made of a species of alga, gathered by the bird. The season for
harvesting the ucsts lasts from April
until September. It takes three
months to build the first neat; and
Just before the eggs arc laid tlie nest
Is stolen by Ihe collector. Tho bird
Immediately sets about tho building
ot another nest, taking thirty days for
the Worki This is also stolen before
Ihe eggs are laid. The third -nest,
however, la unmolested, aud tho' birds
are permitted to raise their young,
after which the nest Is taken and sold.
The nests ara built In most Inaccessible spot.-, among lhe cliffs along
the coast, and tho natives must risk
their lives to reach them. In preparing birds' nest soup the nest is washed In cold water and then cooked for
eight hours in a closed vessel, after
which it is mixed with chicken broth,
seasoned and boiled for a quarter of
an hour. The dish is considered a
great delicacy among the Chinese, and
occidentals who have tried the soup
find it very palatable and much resembling chicken soup.

Tails of the Syrian Breed Weigh Ten
to Fifteen Pounds
It has been suggested that in the
sheep-rattcnlng process, which Is common In tho vicinity ot Damascas, one
might bc able tb trace the original
meaning of the Biblical phrase, "the
tatted calf." Mrs. Mcintosh thus describes thc process in her book, "Damascus":
"the sheop differ from ours. When
we show pictures of the latter to the
natives thoy ask what animals they
arc. They miss tho enormous tails of
the Syrian sheep, In which the fat ot
the body seerns to concentrate, and
which, after skinning and preparing,
often weigh ten to fifteen pounds.

Whence the "Grass Widow*1 \ ,
To give positively the origin of the
expression "grass widow" appears to
be Impossible.   The authorities do not
agree on this point.   Ono contends
that a woman who said to her friends
that her husband "had gone to grass"
following a separation Is entitled to
the credit of coining the expression.
Our writers have attempted to find
an explanation ot lt ln the French
word   grace" to signify a widow by.
courtesy.   In the Scandanavlan lang-j
uages the .prefix "grass"   being   In
common uso, others havo conjectured-]
that It comes from the word "grading" meaning greedy; this signifying
a woman who longs for the husband
who Is gone. .
These give a wide enough choice.

surprising what relief this balm afforded. The burn was so deep and so
serious thut It required careful attention, but Zam-Buk prevented otber

Fish Culture In Canada
Batching fish by artificial means
to stock the waters of Canada is < n-
gaged ln on a large scale by the Dominion Government. In 1009 the Dominion fish hatcheries' planted no Sen
tban 1,024,282,000 fry In varloui waters throughout the country. In 100ft
only 271,906,000 fry were plants* by
the Government fish hatcheries, so
that the plant of young fish has increased by nearly 277 per cent. In the
past ten yean and tho numbe.- of
hatcheries has Increased from 12 to
37 or 20S per cent. Of the 37 hatcheries now in operation, British Columbia and Quebec havo 8 eaoh, Nova
Bcotla, New Brunswick and Ontario.
C each; Manitoba and Prince Edward
Island each have 3.
Tho amonut voted by the Dominion
Parliament for fish culture purposes
in 1909 was $322,300, and ot this $180,-
345, or approximately 56 per cent, was
expended. The Importance of carrying
on this work cannot be emphasized
too much ln a growing country like
Canada, where the Increasing population Is making greater and greater
demands on the fish supply.

A campaign is now in progress,
and a great deal of nonsense is uttered by the suppnrteis of the   McBride  government about the wonderful prosperity of British Columbia,   all  due  to the transcendent
statesmanship of the premier. Some
(awning Tories  even go so far as to
intimate that the government should
lie returned to power unopposed on
the strength of the wave of prosperity now sweeping over the province.
Let us examine this subject in a
. common-sense  manner.   It is now
about ten years since Mr. McBride
obtained control—by' trjckiry—of
the political situation of  the   province.   Has tbe advancement of our
own city during the laBt def ade been
sufficiently marked to warrant the
showering of panegyrics on the government?   Have our citizens been
rewarded with even a just compensation for their labors?   How much
has our population increased?   Is
the volume of business now carried
on here greater than it wsb ten years
ago?   How many of citizens hnve
accumulated wealth sinre Mr. McBride  gained   power?    When you
bave solved these questions in regard
to your own city, apply   tbe same
queries to other  cities—to Nelson,
Rowland, Greenwood, Phoenix, Mid
way, or any town in the Similkameen—and   if, after  an   impartial
consideration of the foots in the mat-

The cook for a well knwn- Seattle

the cooking herself, with such satisfactory results that, after a iiiontn,
her husband gave her a beautifnl set

Of course the neighbors soon heard
of thts, and when the cook left in an

lady of tbat house to her husband:
"Well, the cook has gone, and I'm
not going to bother to get another.
I'm going to do the cooking myself,

Even the greatest actor-managers
do not know all there is tn know
..bout stagecraft, to judge from a curious story concerning Sir Herbert
Beerbohm Tree.
It appears that, at the rehearsal! ot
a certain play at Mis Majestv's theater a wonderful climax had been
reached, which was to be heightened
by the effective use of the usual thunder and liiJhtning. The stage carpetu
ter was given the order. The words
were spoken, and instantly a noise
which resembled a succession of pistol
shots was heard off the wings.
"What on earth are you doing,
man I" shouted Sir Herbert, rushing
behind the scenes. "Do you call that
thunder! It's not a bit like it."
"Awfully sorry, sir," responded the
carpenter; "but the fact- is, sir, I
couldn't hear you because of the
storm.    That was  real thunder, sir."

Member of the Family—A  Daily
Study for Old and Young
'THE family "Herald and Weekly Star of Montreal, acknowledged to. he
I tlie greatest and best family and farm paper on the continent, ban on
many occasion.) given iln readers timet delightful premium picture,
Iuu this season they have secured what is beyond any question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper reader**. It is entitled "Home
Aaain" nnd describes a touching but joyful incident between two friends
who meet after anxious separation. e
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous for his beauty and gentleness, winners
nf many prizes at dog snows, the pride of the family and neighborhood,
Ims been stolen, nnd after many days' absence he escapes one night from
his captor and returns home on a snowy winter's morning witb the rope
which he broke in his struggles for freedom dangling from his collar.
His familiar bark brings his little mistress, Marjorie, to the door and
she throws her arms around her trusty playmate's neck with cries of joy
which bring her mother snd brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome hy putting his
piiws on her shoulder and resting his bead against her breast with a little
whine, which in bis dog language menus—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, lender eyes
nnd parted lip'B—the tyo glad-eyed children—an eager boy with hair like
his mother's and the quick gesture of excited boyhood; the warm-hearted
girl with rippling locks, her affectionate arms around the shaggy neck of
tbe beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win a favored place
mi the walls of any home.
The picture ie by the celebrated nrtist, Arthur J. Elsley, famous for
his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.
The beautiful picture "Horns Again" on heavy plate pnper 22x20

Elephant* Asleep
A question otteb raised ln regard to
the African elephant Is whether these
animals ever rest or not. At first
blush It.would appear tbat tbere could
only be one answer to the question.
So huge an animal must expend a terrific amount ot energy and, therefore,
as one might reasonably Infer, must
need more time than smaller animals
for rest and reiuvlgoratlon. Never-
thdeea many.travellers and some naturalist! havo asserted that the African elephant In Its native state never
sleeps, or at least never lies down.
A correspondent wbo bas sent photographs direct from Malek on the
White Nile, says ln the communication lhat accompanies them that the
picture "represents a herd of female
elephants photographed In tho bush
near Malek, ln the Mogalla Province
of the Anglo-Egyptian Soudan. It has
been maintained that the African elephant never lies down to rest. Several may be seen thus sleeping.

"My heart troubled me all the time,"
Mrs. comeau states; "and I feared for
the terrible result that might follow.
My limbs wouU swell, my back ached
and I was always tired and nervous.
"These symptoms led me to believe
that kidney disease was the root of
all my troubles, so I turned to Dodd's
Kidney Pills. Before I had finished
tae first box the swelling was gone,
my back was well and my heart no
longer troubled me. I am now In thc
beat of health, and I owe lt all to
Dodd's Kidney Pills."
Always strike at the root of the
trouble. And In nine esses out ot ten
all women's troubles start with the
Kidneys. That's why Dodd's Kidney
Pills are woman's best friend.

A Movement to Abolish th* Ut* *f
Postage Stamps.
Proposals bare been mad* to postal
authorities ln Europe that postage
itamps be dons away with, wholly or
tn part No oue who knowa what tb*
mall traffic ot a large commercial concern Is will wonder nt tbe dissatisfaction wltb tbe present system. Tbo entire time of one clerk frequently Is required ond In some concerns several
persons are occupied In placing the little oblongs ot gummed paper on envelopes and packages.
An experiment already bas been
made In Bavaria of postmarking large
consignments at tho postoffice, tho operation being carried out by machinery and no stamps being used. In this
way in enormous expense for printing, cutting and pasting paper itainpi
has been avoided, and no affixing ot
stamps bos been necessary. But It ll
suggested tbat this method Is crude
•nd that something yet moro saving
of time and labor might be devised.
A jneter resembling a gas or wnler
meter could be nttnebed to each large
commercial house, and the mailing
mutter could be passed through It. Th*
registry of the amount would bo automatic, and the postal authorities could
read tbe meter once a month and collect tbe amount due tbem. Different
meters could be hnd for first, second
and third class matter.
Certainly some method ns this seems
fnr moro consistent with the spirit of
tbe age tban our present laborious nnd
time honored wny of doing. We have.
of course, provisions for avoiding the
stump nuisance for some, matter, but
probably tbey conld be extended and

We are so positive that our remedy
will permanently relieve constipation,
no matter how chronic it may be, thut
we offer to furnish the medicine at
our expense should it fail to produce
satisfactory results.
It is worse than useless to attempt
to cure constipation with cathartic
drugs. Laxatives or cathartics do much
harm. They cause a reaction, irritate,
and weaken the bowels and tend to
make constipation moro chronic. Besides, their use becomes a habit tbut
is dangerous.
Constipution is caused by a'w«ak-
ness of the nerves and muscles of the
large intestine br descending colon.
To expect permanent relief you must
therefore tone up anal strengthen
those organs anal restore them to
healthier activity.
We A-ant you to try Uexall Order
lies on our recoioni°tidalion. They are
exceedingly pleasant to taike, being
etiten like candy, and are ideal for
children, delicate persons, and old
folks, as well as for the rohust They
act directy on the nerves and muscles'
of the bowels. They apparently have
a neutral action on other associate organs or glands. They do not purge,
cause excessive hsiseness, nor create
any ioconvenienoe whatever. Thev
may be taken at any time, day or
night. They will.positively relieve
chronic or habiual constipation, if not
of surgical variety, and the myriads of
associate or dependent chronic ailments, if taken with regularity for a
reasonable length of time. 12 tablets,
