THE USES OF COLD
Low Temperature Artificially Created
Haa Done World flood
Most ot us know a lot about hot
air. but the valuable uses to wbioh
air reduced to such deadly temperature as 400 and more degrees below
sero may be put ls by no means so
generally understood. Moat people
think of refrigeration chiefly as a
means ot making artificial Ice and
preserving food. The international
congress of refrigeration which met
In Chicago has taught us to what an
extent refrigeration enters into science, Industry and the useful arts. It
ls not only a vital factor in the food
supply ot tbo nation, aa waa pointed
ont by Professor Scrlbner, ln charge
of the government exhibit. It Is also
claimed for it that of all the modern
utilities lt Is tbe greatest. It ls used
In the manufacture of many ot tbe necessaries of life. It bas, tb cite convincing figures, come to play such an
Important part ln tbo Industrial world
alone that over a billion dollars tn Industries depending upon abnormal
as well as normal artificially created
cold.
Delegates from all over the entire
world have been making tbese facts
clear during tbe past few days. . Aa
to the use of refrigeration ln chemistry, for instance Dr. Kammerllngh On-
see has told of tbe liquefaction of gas
tt a temperature of 426 degrees below
rei'o, or within two degrees ot absolute zero, ln which aimoat Inconceiv-
able temperatures the Composition of
stoms may, he asserts, be determined. The pertlnaey of the time-worn
Jest about steam laundries bids fair
to pass away, thanks to refrigeration,
tor It bas been discovered that starched linen Ironed ln, a cold temperature
does not crack or fray and lasts longer. Refrigeration bas proved Invaluable In the paper-making Industry. It
helps to preserve apple seeds, seed
potatoes and grains. It ls useful ln
curing or preventing tropical disease,
snd in some cases the ravages of hay
fever have yielded to Its beneficent
.rigidity.
Its uae in making artificial Ice la
more generally known, but not the
figures which tell the tale ot the extent ot this industry. Tliere are 3,-
MO ice manufacturing plants In the
United States alone, with a capacity
of between eighteen and twenty million tons of Ice a year. Capital invested ln this one industry Is estimated to amount to $160,000,000.
Altogether the showing ot the uses
to which sub-freezing temperature artificially created may be put ls a remarkable one. They have already
made us independent of many conditions before which man' was once
lelpless and the development of their
ise promises to bring within our reach
still greater stores of highly useful
uid profitable knowledge.

There were old friends come to

Tommy not to talk. So he showed
his youthful offspring a sixpenny bit,
and Intimated to him that tt would be

All went well for a time, then, Just,
aa one ot the guests was in the midst
of an exciting narrative, Tommy
plucked his father's sleeve. Father
shook his head, Ignoring his son's agonised look. Oh, father-
Silence, Tom!
The boy looked towards his mother,
but she only smiled, and the guest
went on. When be had, finished Tommy burst out again:
Mightn't I speak a halfpennyworth,
lather?
A roar ot laughter followed aud
father went on with hie dinner. Tben
someone said. Speak out Tom, I'll pay
the halfpenny for you!

Winter
A man with unusual ideas opened
a boarding bouse at Saranac Lake,
and advertised it as a winter resort.
A guest went up there and after a

and said:
How can you have the nerve to advertise this place as a winter resort
when the thermometer for the past

The landlord looked aggrieved.
Well, that's winter, ain't It? he exclaimed. If 8 below ain't winter I'd

Accurate
At a certain meeting in an outoflhe

one little chairman and a cltlten of
large stature. The chairman had
some resolutions to pass which began
by representing that they were presented to a large and respectable gathering of voters.
Hold on, cried the other man, we
can't paas that, for ll ain't true. It
ain't a large and respectable meeting
There's only two ot us.
You keep still, commanded the wily
chairman; It's nil right, for you are
large and. I am respectable. You Just
keep still.
8o the resolutions were passed without further demur.

could not contain himself for Joy and
exhaled proud eatiafactlon at every

Glancing around tbe room he
chanced fo spy the tall, angular figure
of an elderly matron, with pressed
Ups, as though afraid ot wasting her
breath, and as lean as a lath. She
was taking the arm of a young gentleman.
Wbo is that nanny-goat? Baid tbe
noble lord to a gentleman standing
beside him.
With a knowing smile came the
reply:
That nanny-goat is the Duchess of
—-, the mother of the kid who Is
giving her his arm, and the wife ot
the old buck who has the honor of
speaking with your Excellency.
The' mistress came downstairs und
tried tlle door ot the sitting-room, only
to find tt locked against her, while the

evenings to fit them.o./es for greater
things. But It requires a good constitution generally to do tills.
A man waa ablo to keep ,. up with
ease after ha had learned the sustaining power ot Grape-Nuts although
ho had failed to health before
changed his tood supply.    He says:
Three years ago I had a severe attack of stomach trouble wblob left
me unable to eat anything but bread
and water.
The nervoua strain at my office
trom 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Improper
foods caused my health to fail rapidly. Cereal and so-called 'Foods' were
tried without benefit until I saw
Grape-Nuts mentioned in the paper.
"In hopeleaa desperation 1 tried this
food snd at once gained strength,
flesh and appetite. I am now able to
work all day at the office' and study
at night, -without the nervous exhaust-
lo-i that wu usual before I tried
Grape-Nuts.
'It leaves me strengthened, refreshed, satisfied; nerves quieted and toned
up, body and btain waste restored. I
would bave been a living skeleton, or
more likely a dead on., by thia time,
lt had not been for Grape-Nuts."

Of Practical Interest to Horsemen
It is a matter ot vital importance
to every farmer, horse-owner, and
stockralser to know exactly wbat to
do when one of his animals ts taken
suddenly sick.
The letter of Mr. Frank O..Fuller-
ton, which we print below gives Information ot inestimable value, and
tells ot bis experience In curing ailing
s'tock during   th-.   past   thirty-eight
years.	
'Several years ago
when my horse took
colic I used to give
tbem Cayenne Pepper In hot milk, but
ln a few cases only
did It help and bo
cause I had no proper means at hand
1 lost several va'uable animals. Some
one told me ot the success Mr. Wcndling ot Brock Ilie, Ont, hsd In his racing stables with 'Nerviline,' so I laid
In a supply. It wasn't very long before Nerviline saved the lite ot a
valuable stallion ot mine, which was
worth at leaat H.OuO.OO. This
horse w. taken with colic, and would
have tiled had lt not been for Nerviline. I bave used Nerviline for .e-
ducing swellings, for taking out distemper lumps, and easing; a bad cough,
and always found it worker well. I
recommend every man who owns
horses or cattle a* keep Nerviline
on hand."

Foi Sprains snd Bruises.—There Is
nothing better for sprains and contusions than Dr. Thomas' Bclectrlo
OU. It will reduci the swelling tbat
follows a sprain, will cool the inflamed
flesh and draw the pain as it by magic. It will take tbe ache out ot a
bruise add' prevent the flesh from
discoloring. It seems as if there
was magic ln It, so speedily does the
Injury disappear under treatment.

Will Be Held on Tuesday, January 6
Nearly every newspaper and
all public men of prominence hnve
made guesses regarding the cause
of the high cost of living. Hon.
Martin Burrell, minister of agricul-
turej says the cost is mounting because the farming industry ia not
keeping pace with the increase of
population. Mr. Burrell has evidently forgotten that last year the
crops" all over the world were eo
abundant that the products of the
and could not be given away.and yet
the cost of living rose steadily. It is
therefore apparent that the abundance of farm producla haa no greater
baring on the est of living than a
hiatus in a dream would have in
tilHiiiiig the hidtory of the world.

DREAiOETpLEPSY
A Caie That Should Bring Hope
to Other Sufferers'
There are may cases of epilepsy
Incurable so far as .present medical
knowledge extends and tlie sufferer
Is doomed to go through life a victim
to a disease which has stricken him
suddenly and without warning, and
with each recurring affects his mental
powers. Taken in tine, however,
many cases ot epilepsy have been
permanently cured by t'_e use ot Dr.
.Williams' Pink PIUs, and In cases
where the disease has not reached an
acute form this remedy ls worth giving a fair trial. Among the curea we
give the following. - Mrs.. Robert
Stringer, New Llskeard, Ont., says:
"I have long felt that we should write
you and let you know what Dr. Wil-
llama' Pink Pills h-ve done for our
grandson, who was attacked witli
epilepsy. The trouble seemed to come
on following an attack of whooping
cough. Ills parents seemed to notice that Lis eyea seemed to bulge
out, and that he would be unconscious
for a few seconds, and .would go
about his play as usual. The child
was live years old at this time. The
trouble seemed to be growing more
severe and the attacks to come oftener, and as the local doctors were not
helping him they sent him to the
Children's Hospital ln Tor.nto. He
remained there ftr a Bv.ort time when
the doctors said his trouble was epilepsy, and they could do nothing for
him. Time went on and the attacks
grew worse, and ln the far. ot 1908
my daughter wrote mo tbat tho little
fellow waB getting eo bad that they
wanted to send him back to lho hospital. I asked her to send him to
me for a time, and as one of his
eyes had become crooked I took him
to an occulist, who Bald Una trouble
could be cured, but lt had nothing to
do with bringing on ha other trouble.
As I knew that Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills were a splendid medicine I decided to give them to him, ln the hopo
that they might benefit him. We
were very careful as to diet, and aa
to keeping the child from excitement
In about a month we noticed that the
trouble was lessening, and at this
time the little fellow returned home
tnd bis mother kept up the treatment. In a few months he seemed
fully cured, but during the holidays
the trouble came back ln a milder
form and the Pink PIUs were again
resorted tp, aud again thu trouble
disappeared, and although more tban
a year bas passed there ha: not since
been any sign oi it. We teel so
deeply Indebted fo what Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have 'me tor blm
that we hope this plain statement of
our experience will beneflt some other
sufferer."
You can get Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills from nny dealer ln medicine or
by mall at 60 cents a box or six
boxes for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont

right if there was a salary to it

down the short length ot tho street.
"An automobile lu front ot Pikes',"
ahe murmured bitterly. "I expect 1(1
her brother-in-law trom Marllu. He's
tn the business. 1 declare lt ain't
rlgbt, it ain't fair/' Ber black eyes
snapped angrily as she drew back and
piled her crochet needle'.
"Honk, bonk!" sounded defiantly, and
a small motorcar turned Into Willow
atreet and stopped In front of Mra.
Tompkins' house.
She arose, and an expectant light
tame Into her eyes. * Was It possible
that she wss to have "automobile company" at last? Tbus far sho waa the
only resident on tbe street who could
not boast an acquaintance who owned
a motorcar.
As she reached the head of tbe steps
a becapped and begogglod bead was
thrust from under the top, and a man
asked quickly:
■'Does Mrs. Mills tiro here?!'
Amelia Tompkins drew herself up
stiffly.
"Next bouse," sbo said grimly, and
a dull flush reddened ber cheeks as
she went back to ber chair.
"Vou might bavo known It was for
mc," tossed Susie Mills across tbe
spijco that separated the two bouses as
•bo came around from tbe side door to
greet her visitor.
Amelia Tompkins made oo reply as

Her movements were very deliberate.
She went through tho beuso nnd set
tbo tcakettlo on tbe stove: tben she
went upstairs to ber bedroom and
locked tbe door. After tbut abe knelt
down boilde her bed and prayed wltb
real anguish of soul.
Her neighbors In Willow atreet
might bttvc been horrified If thoy had
heard thc prayer of Amelia Tompkins.
Undoubtedly they would have called
her worldly, for sbe prayed earnestly
that the l_ord would send her "automobile company."
Thero wero six houses ,ln Willow
street, and tho only hunse tbnt know
no automobile company was tbe whltt
cottage of Amelia Tompkins It stood
tt the end or the little blind- street
and fared all, tbe others, tbreo on a
side.
Not one of Amelia's .kind hearted
neWibors realised Imw tho lonely

lamp* before her gate on .a summer
evening nnd tlle gay summons of s
motor burn. Hu many times hnd she

. was glad when night closed down and
she could retire.to her room, undisturbed by taonklugs or brilliant flnjtlics
of lanterns.   .
Ono mlgbt sny that Amelia Tompkins was foolish, bnt who enn blnroe
her?   Sbo was one of a suiull com-
I munlty. willow street wns a little settlement by Itself. Everybody owned
his own home,, and all attended tbt
same church. Beyond Willow street
the city went its- own way. To the
Widow Tompkins Willow street was
life.
And life was very r?«U without su-
tomobile company... '
One morning she atood on the front
porch watering bet hanging baskets.
Amelia wu fond ot Sowers, and her
little place was a perfect bower of
beauty.
"You're looking kinder peaked. Amelia."   called   Susie   Mills,   wblootng*
artund th* comer ef tht house, Tery
trig In her green Tell and brown
duster. "What you need Is s good spin
Into the country."
Amelia's pale cheeks flushed, snd
she looked really -pretty. Sbe had
a certain plump prettlness that had
been much admired wben sbo was a
girl. Since her busband bad died Amelia had clung tenaciously to black and
wblte gowns, wblcb were not at all becoming. Wearing the right sort ot
clothes, Amelia would bavo regained
mueh of her youthful prettlness. Sbe
was lonely,, ond she was snd. and she
seldom found causo to smile, which
Is very sad wben one is only forty-flvt
snd a comely widow.
"A little spin In tbe country Is wbat
you need, Amelia," repeated Susie,
hanging over tbo gate expectantly.
"I s'poso that's what you're going to
take," said Amelia, with wbat grace
abe could muster.
"Ob, yes! Fred's going over to
Wlnslow and said ht would take mt
along."
"In the yeast wagon?'' flew off the
end ot Amelia's tongue.    -
Mrs. Mills turned sharply.
"Yeast automobile  Is  better  tban
walking." she said loftily.
Amelia agitatedly snipped off an unoffending lobelia blossom.
"If s too hot even to walk," abe retorted. "I'm going to bavo a car myself." sbe eald Impulsively.
"Humph!" sniffed Susie Mills. "I
guess it's coming now," abe added
sarcastically.
Tbere came a honk from the end ot
tbo street, aud a large motorcar turned from the avenue lnto"Wlllow. street
and came unerringly up to the little
white cottage. Aa tt wheeled abont
and came puffingly to a standstill tho
solitary occupant, stepped to the
ground end shook out bla long linen
duster.
Susie Mills was agog.
"You looking far met" sbe chirruped.
Tm Mrs. "Mills."
Tbe man smiled pleasantly. "I am
looking for Urs. Tomrklns." be Informed her, bis bsnd on Amelia's trout
gate.
"Obi" cried Mm. Milla enviously, and
abe was enraged because tbo yeast
car eamo noisily up tbo street juat
tben and boro ber awiy. Sbe could
not see tbt meeting between Amelia
Tompkins snd tbo msn ln tho beautiful car.
Aa for tho otber motor enthusiasts
of Willow street, every man, womaa
and child found imperative business
near tbe respective front sates.
The atranger pushed open Mra.
Tompkins' front gate and in three long
abides had reached tbe fron' -torrb.
Amelia, outwardly calm, but Inwar
ly exulting at tbls answer to prayer,
came forwrd. tall anti ratber graceful and very attractive ln tbe uncertain
llfcbt
"Mrs. Tompkins?' asked tbo man
courteously.
"Yes." tald Amelia. "-Won't you alt
down?"
"Thank you." He placed a cbalr for
Amelia nnd sat down on a hickory
chair. He laid his motor cap beside
blm, and Amelia notwl wltb a faint
stirring of her pulses that bis forebead
was very nlco aud It wns too bad tbat
hla cap bad left a red crease there.
It waa ratber a familiar looking fo _•
head. Tbe way the-brown hair wns
brushed up and back reminded ber of
some out. Tbe memory was a painful
one for Amelia, for It aroused Ibe ont
-grief of ber girlhood. JSbo wondered
what this man wauted. To sell sotuu-
thlng, of course.
"I am afraid that yon will think t
am impertinent. Mrs. Tompkins." ho
said, rapping tbe edge of bis rap
against the seat and lookiug nt ber
ratber doubtfully, "but. 1 couldn't beip
coming. I've beeu wanting to for snme
time-In fnct. over tlnro-well, siuce

Amelia leaned bock In tbo rocker and
panted n llllle, Shu felt that something very* unusual waa nbtiut to happen in her quiet, uneventful life. Sm-li
thluga happened In books, tint- ke whs
speaking agttlti. "It's twenty yeurs
since wo met, Amelia. I dun't wonder
you've forgotten uie," bo blurted forth
at last..
Forgotten Mm?
Amelia leaned forward, her heart In
her blue eyes. Could any girl forget
her flrst lover? Could tiny woman
forget lho man ahe bnd loved end
whom ber parenta had bade her enst
otT fnr another and more advantageous
match? If bach tblngs could lie tor-
gotten then Am. Ma Tompkins could
forget Itnli'h Blake.
. Ho wss leaning eagerly forward
nojv. a good looking middle aged maa
with boyish eyes and a general air ot
prosperity tbat seemed out of place
upon a man wbom Amelia bad known
only aa a shy country youtb.
"Amelia. I've watted and waited, and
I can't forget youl" he said tensely.
"It will tako somo tlme'for you to-pick
up the threads after all theso years
of separation, but I've never changed.
I feel Just the aame aa 1 did that

a whisper.
"Ralph, Ralph!" sbe cried, with a
shaking voice, and so tho Intervening
years vanished wltb the warm breath
of true lore, nnd tbelr hands met and
afterward their patient lips.

Amelia Tompkins In a strange wuy.

Oool Clothes,
Cool garments are those which favor
the dissipation of the heat of the body,
for the warmth felt by the wearer of
the garment proceeds not so much from
the garment itself as from the yearer.
Wool is warm, because it ls a worse
conductor of heat from the body than
other materials, while fur is the worst
conductor of all. i
Silk ia cooler than either cotton or
lines, for it favors conduction of hest
from the bodj- betetr than any other-, out.
lew Dtadly Little Weapons Hare a
Trial Trip.
Torpedo running or torpedo testing
u the operation auy well be called, is
a most faiclnstlag proeess to watch.
Torpedoes aa everybody knows, are
fired from a tube oa board ship, aad
travel oa or under the water by means
of propellers worked by compressed
air stored ia a chamber .aside tht
torpedo. *
They sre tested to see at what speed
they travel, and whether their course
ls true, aad whether they- answer to
the setting ot their machinery before
leaving the ship.
Stand on the cliff known aa Blae-
leaves, over looking the famoua Fort-
land Harbor, and there within view
art two of the melt famous torpedo-
ranges la Englaad.
A torpedo-range at every 600 ysrds
Is marked hy a raft, securely moored
aad floating barrels. On every raft
stands a man with a res flsg. He is
known as a torpedo-marker, and Us
duty is to signal the einct second the
submerged torpedo passes beneath his
raft.
The Secrets Carefully Guarded.
Bo fearful are the Admiralty of other
powers, especially our Oerman rivals,
learning the secrets of these deadly
weapons of war, thst no outsiders are
ever allowed oa the rifts or within the
range building when torpedo running
ib taking'place.
The red flag waving gaily in the
morning'*, easterly breeze tells the onlooker that torpedoes are bein(j tested;
and rocking idly on the quivering waters are a couple of picquet boats, whose
duty is to bring hack the torpedo when
its trial run is ended.
The ear-piercing hoot of a powerful
steam syren breaks tke stillness,  and
warns tiie markers to be on the look-

Bleaohed fabrics are cooler than unbleached ones; In summer and winter
all clothes should lit sufficiently loose
to give the limbs and respiratory organs thoir full freedom.
Oolor should also play an important
?>art in the choice ot our clothing for
he seasons. White is the ideal color
for summer, because it ls one that absorbs the least heat, While, on the other
hand, black or dark-colored garments
attract the rays aad absorb a largo
amount of heat—hence their usefulness
for winter wear.
Fish Preserved Without Ice.
Professor Alexander Danilevsky,
a Russian scientist, claims to have discovered a new process for preserving
fish. Before a recent Invitation luncheon was eaten, the guests saw fourteen
days' old lish in glass tars, immersed
in a liquid which is the" professor's
Serial preparation. The flsh were
en taken eut of the jars, and the
guests aaw them cooked and afterward
ate them. The flsh had been sealed up
in thb presence of impartial witnesses.
Prof. Danilevsky claims by his method
to keep flsh fresh for as long as three
weeks or a month.    He also has a
iiroeess by which ht can keep flsh in
ars for two years, and they will still
>e thoroughly pure and eatable. The
professor worked fo'r fifteen yeara before he brought his experiments - to a
successful issue. He asserts that his
invention will revolutionize the fishing industry.

Enraptured, they gazed, hnnd-in-

"Dearest," he said, gazing at her
fondly, "isn't this heavenly 1"
"Yes, Reginald," she softly murmured.
"Do you know," he whispered ardently, "to me life does not seem long
enough for our happines. Just think,
even if wo are fortunate, our married
life can hardly last longer than fifty
years."
"Is that allt" shi queried wonder-
tnglv, edging nearer.
"Yes, that's so," a touch of sadness
in his voice. "Only flfty years in which
to love each other."
"Then kiss me quick, Reginsld," shs
exclaimed, "we're wasting time!"
Poor Orlektt.
The fielding of the home teem was
wretched to the extreme. Catch after
catch was "buttered" with aggravating persistence, and the professional,
who bowled mainly for "spooners,' was
fast losing his temper and patience.
Eventually the visitors' captain, who
was having a lengthy innings, thanks to
numerous "lives,'1 put the ball into the
hands of a young amateur at slip. But
again the fielding waa at fault. Tke
protessioaal glared, the fieldsmen blushed and muttered apologetically something sbout sn spldemie.
"Epidemic, be blowed!" exclaimed
tho bowler angrily. "It can't bi aa

you   can   easily   distinguish   the men
standing on their rafts flag in hand.
Suddenly from the building a silvery
fish-like form hurls itself Into the sea.
So cleverly moving, woapon of destruction, that the same depth beneath the
surface of tho water can be maintained
by tho torpedo throughout the length of
its rapid course. For testing purposes
this is usually nxed at 8 feet, at which
depth the torpedo can bo easily distinguished cleaving its way beneath
the water.
Within the building overlooking thi
range of keon-eyed clerk stands peering
through the powerful tolescope;, whilst
at his side are an accurate card. On
this he enters tho exact secood at
which each marker drops his flag; thus
marking ths precise time the topredo
passes each successive raft.
Dangers Which Beset Markers.
Torpedo marking is sn operation
whieh is full of danger to the markers.
The ingenious implements of destruction sometimes run amok ln spite of
every precaution. A marker at the
Blank range was recently watching an
oncomiag torpedo.
Within a few yards of his raft the
torpedo head emerged from the water,
and before the astonished marker could
move thi weapon appeared to take a
flying leap at the rait. It cleared it as
by a miracle, and plunged into the
water on the other aide. So near did
the flying mass of steel pass ths man,
that his flag struck its nose as it passed
him, whilst its whirling propeller missed
his head by inches only.
Thi raft, although securely moored
and containing a small hut provided
with both seats and fireplace, are by
no means a comfortable or safe placi
in a storm.
Costing from $3,000 to *5,000, torpedoes are too expensive to be allowed to
be lost. Ofttimes a torpedo for some
unaccountable cause takes a sudden
plunge downward and buries its nose in
the mud at the bottom of the sea. To
recover aa embedded torpedo, recoursi
has to bl made to the services of skilled divers, and this operation is also not
free from peril.

Mn. Johnson was all excitement; her'

"You'll soon see «sddy now," she

On arrival at thi barrscks, Mrs. Johnson waa informed that hir husband was
on sentry duty, and one of the soldiers
pointed him out to her, but, of course,
they conld not approach him.
Ths child eyed her dsddy with bla
