the Battle ofthe Boyne
Observed Here
Saturday evening, July 12, the
members of Observation L,0 L,
No, 52, celebrated the 223rd anniversary of the Battle of the Boyne
in their lodge room. There was a
good turn out of members, besides
quite a number of visiting brothers,
After a short time spent in conversation and getting acquainted, tbe
W. M.. F. R Scott, called the meeting to order.
Io his opening remarks, Mr. Scott
said tbat be waB pleased to see so
many present, and on behalf of tbe
lodge be extended a hearty welcome
to the visiting brothers.
Rev Brother Barlow, pastor of
tbe Methodist church, was tbe first
speaker called on, and spoke on the
present day need of the Orange association and its opportunities of
doing good at this period of foundation laying in Canada.
Rev, Brother King, pastor of the
Baptist church, was tbe next speaker. In tbe course of his remarks be
said tbat there mucb expected of
Orangemen, and the reason so much
was expected was because the principle they stand for is so high, viz.,
religious liberty. Mr. King was.
1 stened to with rapt attention.
The otber visitors who spoke were
Brothers Patterson of Creston,.Fra
ser of Cranbrook, and Pell of Manitoba. Quite a number of tbe members of tbe lodge also gave sbort
speeches. Ice cream, cake and
lemonade were served, and some selections were given on tbe grapho-
phone, after which the meeting
closed witb "God Save the King."
On Sunday evening the brothers
marched to the Methodist church,
where the pastor preached a strong
sermon, his text being taken from
Jude, I chap., 3rd verse, "Earnestly
contend for the faith wbicb was once
delivered unto tbe Saints."

cement transcend experience, but
only in bulk. It is the organization
that is without precedent in the
whole history of public works—it is
this that is tbe eighth wonder of
the world, ln this organization
there ia no detail so minute but to
have received attention. From the
most puzzling problems in engineering to tbe American youth's love of
ice cream, nothing seems to have
been lef unconsidered Tbis elaboration of detail hns doubtless been
gradual, but the visitor coming upon
its completeness today the impression ia staggHrinii and not unmixed

An Appalling Total
The 125,000,000 worth nf financial engagements lightly submitted
to the house of commons at the-late
Bession of tbe Dominion parliament
is rightly regarded as "an appalling
total" by the Weekly Sun of Toronto, which adds:
This is over eight times the total
disbursements of the Dominion government in tbe last year Alexander
Mackenzie was in power. It is nearly
six times the aggregate expenditure
of the last year of' the Tupper government. It is mote than twice as
mucb as was spent in tbe laat year
of the Laurier administration.

In all tbis wide world the most

Some Extraordinary Inatances of
Their Travela
The ornithologists tell us that birds
are not so invariable in their migratory habits as most persons suppose.
If for Instance, the season Is warm,
or their ls sufficient food for them
in the north, the birds are late starting south.
Nevertheless, the month of October
is a sort of starting-point In the records of the ornithological-societies.
But lt is not infrequently the case
that birds lhat migrate In large numbers on October Slst one year, have
either not arrived or have passed
south earlier on the corresponding
date of previous years.
The Accidental Visitors' 1.1st, kept
by the London Zoological Society, is
a record of all birds observed In
Qreat Britain and on the British
coasts that ure not indigenous to the
British Isles, but have flown thither
trom the Continent. In England, naturalists, ornithologists, lighthouse-
keepers, masters of vessels, coast-
guardsmen, farmer., and several
country gentlemen gladly report
strange birds which they may observe, and give the date and circumstances of the observation. An examination of 'The Accidental Visitors
List reveals many curious happenings.
Birds native to eastern Siberia and
China, North Africa and the arctic
regions have thus been observed in
Qreat Britain. An extraordinary instance was that of a Canada owl that
alighted ln an exhausted condition on
board a vessel off the coast of Cornwall ln 1830. The bird was so fatigued with its long flight across tbe
Atlantic that it offered not the Blight-
est resistance when handled by the
sailors / A Carolina cuckoo waB shot
in Wales in February, 1831, by Lord
Cawdor. In 1831 an American Wood-
duck was killed at Dorking, England.
In 1872 three specimens of Cassln's
snow-goose, a native of Labrador, were
seen on the west coast of Ireland.
The American societies bave also a
record of five individuals of this species shot ln Chesapeake Bay ln 1871.
The    London      Zoological So
ciety also maintains an accidental visitor's list of fishes, as well as of birds,
and the same thing Is done at the
Woods Hole, Massachusetts.
Tbese curious wanderers Into another continent are doubtless the
young of Bome migratory flock. Such
a flock ls led by an old and experienced bird, which knowB the route
north and south. Occasionally birds
that have never before been over the
aerial road may get separated from
the flock. They become bewildered,
and fly about, quite at a loss until
they reach land; where that may be
Is entirely a matter ot chance.
Now and then birds that are uot
strictly migratory gather ln enormous
flocks, and sweep over several hundred miles of country. The cause that
Impels them to such action ls still a
mystery. Many years ago Turkey
and Bulgaria were Invaded by enormous flocks of the rose-colored pastor.
These birds proved destructive to
vine-yards and growing crops, and the
peasants had to turn out In force and
kill them by the hundreds. A flock
of these birds would strip a tree of
fruit in less time than it takes to tell
of it, aud there were public rejoicings
ln places after the vast flocks had
passed. So little Is known of the
cause of such migration that the bird
societies everywhere are constantly
on the alert to note any unusual happenings ot this sort.
Mark Twain wa_t In a restaurant

Nearly a Million Passengers Defrauded Government in a Year
The statistical report ot the State
Railways of Russia Just published
shows by an amusing array of figures
that for some people, at least It costs
little Indeed to travel by rail ln Russia. Among tbe dismissals and punishments Inflicted ln tho course of a
year, 315 guards and 133 subordinates
dismissed, and 6,576 guards and 10,-
473 others fined, are all catalogued as
having helped wayfarers along without
sufficient regard for the law, which
decrees that Journeys by railway ln
Russia shall be paid for.
But these odd 20,000 punishments
can scarcely be said to meet tbe
needs of the .-ase, as ln the course of
a year nearly a million passengers defrauded tli.' State Railways management. Tho exact number is 004,118.
Altogether as much as $560,000 was
found to be due for fares unpaid.
Nearly half the money waB paid at
once, a quarter was paid later of free
will, and for the payment of the rest
the authorities were compelled to go
to law.
Naturally most of the guards and
subordinate employees received slight
commissions from the passengers
they helped. Calculating that only
a third, or at the highest estimate a
half, ot the cheap travellers are
caught, the effect on the railway balance-sheet must.be very considerable.
It is amusing to note, however, that
tor tbe tlm -i being the department expresses Itself almost satisfied. In
earlier years, It ls explained, the number of passengers without tickets who
got oS free was much greater.
I could go through hardships with
the man I loved.
I'd rather go through n million dollars.

Dry-Farming Helped Alberta
Alberta's share of the 1912 Immigration Into Canada amounted to 90,-
000 people, according to Charles S.
Hotohkiss, provincial statistician.
This brings the population of the province to approximately a halt million
people, the gain in 1912 being 21 per
cent. It ls believed that this percentage will be largely exceeded ln
1913, on account of the work which
the International Dry-Farming Congress did for the province last fall.
The seventh annual Congress was held
ln Lethbridge ln October with delegates from practically every American state and from seventeen foreign
nations. It wae the most Important
gathering ever held In Alberta.
Though its work had nothing to do
with colonization the publicity given
Its meetings was world-wide and the
result la that Alberta, ls better and
more favorably known today especially ln the United States, than ever before. Reports from all sections ot
the United States Indicate a very
heavy Immigration to Alberta this
year, largely exceeding that ot 1912,
when the states contributed 30,000
people and $40,000,000 ln cash and
effects to the prosperity ot this province. The Dry-Farming Congress
will be held this year In Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Judging from Alberta's
results, that state will reap great benefit.

When Sciatic Pains

It Kills the Pain, Cores the Suffering, Destroys Every

"I tblnk you ou°*ht to make your
claims stronger about the marvelous
power ot Nerviline on Sciatica, and
Lumbago." This ls how Mrs. A. C.
Corrigan opens her letter, written
from Victoria. "So n,any people are
suffering, and so few get proper treatment, that I am anxious that thousands should know ol how Nerviline
cured me. Sciatica ls just about the
most awful pain humans are called upon to bear, and ln my case there was
at times the additional misery ot
Lumbago, Nothing attracts attention to particular forms ot suffering
like personal experience, and tbat ls
why I am so enthusiastic about Nerviline. I had the luck to use the rlgbt
remedy (Nerviline) almost at the beginning, and cleaned lt right out of
my system. But most people use the
wrong remedy and get Sciatica in
chronic form. Nerviline eases the
pain at once, and stops the lnflama-
tlon before' lt becomes chronic. I
say that a liniment tbat Las power
enough to kill the pain of Sciatica la
a remedy everybody Bhould know
about, for lt would snuff out ln a wink
little ailments like Neuralgia, Lumbago, Strains, tired muscles and Inflammation from cold."

Dresden Man, Who Inherited Trouble
Finds Speedy Relief and Permanent
Cure in Dodd's Kidney Pills.
Dresden, Ont. (Special) .—Whether
Kidney disease is hereditary or not
ts a matter ot opinion.     Mr. Samuel Burkett, a well-known resident of
this place, is convinced that he inherited his from his parents.    He knows
thait Dodd's Kidney PIUs cured It.
"I Inherited my Kidney Disease
from my parents," Mr. Burkett states.
I was treated by a doctor, and tried
various medicines, but lt was not till
about eighteen months ago, when I
started to use Dodd's Kidney PIUs
tbat I got any permanent relief.
Since then I have not felt any effect of my old trouble, and I feel that
anybody troubled with kidney disease
will be benefited by the use of Dodd's
Kidney PIUs if they follow directions
"I hope that otherB may be helped
by Dodd's Kidney Pills. I am well-
known bore, and anybody who wishes
more particulars of my cure can have
them by writing me and enclosing
stamps for reply."
Dodd's Kidney Pills never fall to
cure any form ot kidney dlBease.
_ Keeping Ever at it
Some men make poor farmers because they are easily discouraged.
Other men make good farmers because
of the simple reason that they never
know when they are beaten—always
working, plowing, toeing or harvesting in season. These latter kind of
fellows have not time to become discouraged nor sour upon their calling
In life. Industry breeds happiness;
loose application fosters discouragement . A man may be buffeted about
by adverse fates, his morrow looked
upon to bring nothing good; and be
he a farme.-, a mechanic or a laborer,
he can search the univers. and he
will find only one rule to help him.
That rule says that whatever his trade
or his calling be, he must keep ever
at It, because perseverance Is the
only hope that any man (An have If
he would gain success.

Above Suspicion
Some sound, common-sense remarks
were made by Hon. O. P. Graham
and Hon Robert Rogers ln the House
ot Commons tbe other day when the
question of Increasing the salary ot
the Chairman of the Dominion Railway Board was under consideration
It Ib not often that the leaders ot the
opposing parties can agree on anything, but the ex-Mlnlster of Railways and the present Minister ot Public Works found themselves In hearty
accord on the necessity of regarding
the Railway Board as something entirely removt-d from party politics,
"The Railway Board Is as high
above party as is a Judge on tbe
bench, and should be so considered,"
aaid Mr. Graham, and The Herald
hopes that as wide publicity as possible will be given to hts words. Mr.
Rogers echoed them, and ot his sincerity there can be no question,
The Chairman ot tbe Dominion Railway Board occupies a position second
only tn Importance perhaps to that of
the Premier of Canada. The right
man in this very Important position
can do much tor Canada; what the
wrong man could do lt ls unpleasant
to contemplate.
Tbe Board was the crctlou of the
Laurier administration; the man they
selected as Its head was the best possible man (or the position. Mr,
Rogers generously admitted all this,
and we believe that he spoke only the
truth when he said that the selection
of a successor to the late Hon.
James P. Mabee waB not made without moat serious thought by the government.
Newspapers, Irrespective of party,
will do well to pay more tban passing
attention to what Mr. Graham said.
They have, lt would appear, been the
chief offenders ln attributing political
motives to the action of the Board In
different caseB. The Herald, tof one
does not believe that any action
whatever of the late James Pitt Mabee was influenced ln the very slightest degree by political considerations.
It believes also that In H. L. Drayton, the Government was fortunate
enough to secure a. man who measures up to Mr. Mabee's standard.
We do not believe that politics have
the slightest weight with the present
Dominion Railway Board. Certainly
the railways do not want any sua*
thing Those who attribute political
motives to whatever decisions the
Board sees fit to make, are paying a
poor compliment, not only to the
Board which should be, as Mr. Graham declared, as much above suspicion as a Judge upon the bench, but
to the Government under which the
Board flbes Us very useful wovk.-

A Hint to our Town Cousins
How many of the well-groomed,
well-fed people ln the cities ever stop
to think what would happen to them
lf the farmer Bhould quit, or to ask
whence comes their dally bread? The
only occasions on which they think
ot the farmer at all Is when they Bean
their grocer's bill and conjure up vis-
Ions ot a rapacious robber out on the
land, who ln fiendish glee Is boosting
the cost of living. They do not know
or lt they do very often they do not
care, that the man on the farm, at
the mercy of flood, drought, epidemic,
and all the Insect plagues ot Egypt,
is patiently and Industriously doing
his duty, and that very little of the
ultimate price of his product finds Its
way Into his purse. It would be well
if our cousins ln town should see the
man with the hoe from a new and
more correct angle.

Nerves on Edge
Every Sound Annoys
Weak, worn-out nerves keep one In
a constant state ot Irritability and
excitement. The eyes are sensitive
to light, and every noise Jars on the
overwrought nerve...
If children are about they are a constant source of annoyance nnd irritation .    Every door seems to slam, and
little extra excitement or exertion
leads to wakeful nights, nervous headache or Indigestion.
ln this condition women are likely
to be hysterical, and suffer greatly at
regular periods. The nerves must
be nourished back to vigor by such
treatment as Dr. Chasc'B Nerve Food.
Being gentle and natural ln action,
this food cure Is highly ,,ri/.i .1 by
women and used with most remarkable results In building up the broken-
down nerve ceUs.
In a few days after beginning this
treatment you will find yourself resting and sleeping naturally anil taking your food vith n regular relish.
As vigor Is restored to the system It
will bc apparent ln improved complexion and building up of the tissues of
the body.
With the nerves revitalized the organs of the body resume th * natural
functions and weakness nnd dlstase
give way to new hope aud confidence,
new vigor antl health.

beam nn them; it is a sort   nf   new
children's hour, though it be no'
Longfellow's. The parents turn to
their own section of the paper and
feast upon Macbetbean banquets of
the world's assorted horrors. The
little ones are engrossed in the mishaps of Happy Hooligan or Mutt
and Jeff, or in the demoniacal ingenuity of the Kalsehjaiiinier Kids.
Yet while the minds of the adults
have been dwelling upon the murder, dishonesty and vice so entertainingly supplied by the papers,
the impressionable minds of the
children have heen saturated with a
debauchery nf fancy, a harmful
travesty of life and truth as bnneful
in its effect as the black news in
reality. They have heen feeding
upnn moral poison—the clownish
crudities nf the comic supplement.
But how few parents realize the in-
siduous effect of these coarse nnd
malignant horrors perpetrated as
jokes upon their tender children.
Years ago a hue and cry was raised
against the evil influence of "Peck's
Bad Boy." It whr wretched stuff
and soon forgotten. Very young
children were unable to read it, so
its power for tutoring them into disrespect and rebellion against their
elders was insignificant. But the
wide reaching evil influence of these
cheap and cruder pictorial representations of cruelty, cunning, trickery
and brutality is momentous and im
mediate. It is in fact a national
peril, and students of juvenile crime
can nn longer ignore its influence
upon the receptive child-mind
To laugh at the discomfiture of nn
elder person to whom affection is
owing, to seek revenge hy under-
banded means, to betray guileless
and trusting confidence, to be su
premely selfish, untruthful, brutal
and crafty, these are the qualities of
the heroes of the comic supplement.
Were a person to enter a household
and induce the young poodle to indulge in malicious practical jokes he
would soon be shown the door by
tbe irate mrster of the house. Yet
every week such a visitor is received
by the parents, nay, even welcomed,
for it "amuses ihe children." Proper
pictnrial amusement is easily and
cheaply obtainable. The cbild
should never be permitted to be
merely amused. That whicli induces
his laugh Jhould also impart a. les
son-—not a moral—however milii
and subtle.
The comic supplement is not
comic; it is incipiently criminal. It

Should be the Birthright ol Every
Woman and Growing Girl.
Many women and growing girls
who should have bright eyea, rosy
cheeks, strong nerves and elastic Btep,
and a good appetite, are seen to decline In health. Their spirits grow
sluggish, the cheeks become pale,
temper fitful, and the nerves oversensitive. They may have Inherited
a tendency to Ill-health, or they may
have over-worked, over studied or
worried until tne strength of the body
was not equal to the demands made
upon It.
To guard against a complete breakdown ln health tho blood must be
kept pure and rich. No other medicine can do this bo well as Dr. Williams' Fink PIUs, for they act both
on the blood and nerves, restore the
appetite and keep every organ toned
up. All women cannot rest whenever they should, but this strengthening medicine is within every woman's
reach, and will keep them ln the enjoyment of good health. And lt is
especially Important that ln every
Stage ot woman's life the blood supply be kept pure and rich. The value of Dr, Williama' Pink PIUs ls well
illustrated by the case ot Mrs. David
Chambers, Bensfort, Ont,, who says:
"Some years ago I suffered greatly
from Impoverished blood. I was very
pale and thin and had no strength, I
took a lot of doctor's medicine without getting any benefit, and at last decided to try Dr. Williams' Pink PIUs,
which I had heard highly recommended. It was not long before I began
to feel better, and after taking the
Pills for perhaps a couple ot months
my health was fully restored, and although some years have passed I have
continued strong and healthy, and I
think I owe it entirely to Dr. WU-
Hams' Pink PIUs.
"Sometime later my daughter, then
about tw-'lve years of age, had been
working very hard at school and her
health gave way. She. was weak
and listless and her bands and face
were badly swollen, and we feared
dropsy was setting in. However, we
started to give her Dr. Williams' Pink
PIUs and she was soon quite well
again. I always recommend Dr.
Williams* Pink Pills to tny suffering
as we did, knowing the beneflt our
family receivid from them "

An inquisitive member ot the Hous*

the presence of a policeman In ona
of the lobbies. He wondered why
this particular lobby should alwaya
have a guardian strolling up and down
and made Inquiries. The records of
the House were searched and It was
found that fifty years previously,
when the lobby was being decorated, a
policeman had been stationed there to
keep member;; from Boiling their

been conuterflKnded, the constable
had kept his beat tor half a century.

(II men could not flgger out that Integrity paid 35 per cent profit nnd no

As founding orphan asylums has always bcen right In my line, I turned
aside o'er the prairie and follered blm.
After walking balf a mile lie stopped
and said:
"Behold the spot: Here Is peace and
rest and quietness, lt Ib Ave miles to
the next habitation, no corner saloon.
no ward heelers, no trouble und travail. Bere shall tbe orpbau rest and
ling his song and fear no danger."
A Striking Argument.
I was silently admiring the landscape, which consisted of a hundred
acres ot prairie and a lame horse, when
I felt something bit me on the back
of my neck, and two hours had passed
when I opened my eyes to earthly affairs ag'ln. Tben the bland and smiling old kuss had long departed, and
witb bim bad gone my outfit. It bnd
been a put up job on a good and Innocent man, and It had succeeded. For
a time I knew not which way to turn.
My speerlts were down to zero and
my faith In integrity nil. Tbus for a
few minutes, and then I rallied nnd set
out on foot to tbe town mentioned.
It was after dark when I got into
the town, and what was my surprise to
find that smiling and blnnd old kuss
selling my alleviator on tlie public
square and passing blmself off for me!
I gave blm more rope and then nt a
critical Juncture closed In on him.
When tbe populace found that It had
been deceived tbere wns no more work
for me to do. The people did It themselves. During tbe fervid excitement
I managed to turn the victim's pockets
wrong side out and possess myself ot
their contents, nnd when Invited fo see
htm tarred and feathered nnd ridden
out of town on a rail I wus present on
the front ranks.
Integrity mnde one ot the biggest
triumphs of tbe decade. It wns nlmost
hr good as uncovering the operations
of a coal road. I sought my couch
amid the plaudits of thc innlltltmlo beforo I thought to count my cash. When
1 did so I found thnt nnt only my own
had been restored, but I lind $40 belonging to tbe blnnd. smiling old kuss
who was coated with tnr. It was then
thnt I determined never to doubt integrity again.
Integrity Wins.
Two days later I was Jogging between tbe towns of Bell Rent and Angle's Boost wbeu I encountered n female. It Is agin my primaries to butt
ln, but tbls female wan weeping, and
It seemed my dooty to cheer her up. She
wns going my wny, nnd I offered her
a lift. Tearfully she climbed np beside me. and wben 1 bnd given her five
minutes to subdue ber emotions I
"Feller woman, hast the world given
you the icy heart?"
"Alas, It's all Ice!" she replied.
"Is It about thc old man'."
"She lie. He got tired of my looks
and bade me take a skate."
Then I looked more closely nt ber
and did not find It in my heart to
blame lilm, tbough I bold that no woman is to blame for looking nnbeautl-
ful. She can't belp lt more'n a mulley
cow can help being born without
"Aud where goest thou?" I continued.
"1 goeth ln search."
•"Of another man'."
"The same—that Is, I was ln search
of another, but I have found him.
Where thou goest I will go."
She stole her arm nround my wnlst.
and snuggled up to me, and the tears
went away, nnd sunshine Illumined her
"I nm uot free to marry." I said after
awhile. "Back in the state of Indiana
dwells an old woman wbo watches and
wulls for me. Sbs may amtlner to
watch and wait for yenrs and yeurs to
como for all she'll ever see mc, but
nevertheless tbe legal pnrt still holds.
Love and matrimony arc not for Joo."
"Never In tbis vein world will I let
tbee go," ssys the woman, with n grent
deal of fervor.
It was then that I called upon integrity to get a bump on herself and pull
mo out of a bad bole, nnd It wus also
.then that my faith In her was rewarded. The off fore wheel fell Into tbe rut,
and the female was pitched out on tbe
prnlrle on her head, and by the time
she bad scrambled op I had tho old
boss under moshun, and her efforts to
overtake me were In vain.

Memory Experiences Them "20, and
30, and 40 Years On."
What has become of the circus ol
our youth? Where is the fellow who
used to bring his girl to town on circus days and treat her to pink lemonade? He always wore ,a bright red,
tightly rolled artificial rosebud in the
left lapel of his coat, carried a striped
cane and tried to ride the trick mules.
That circus—the old circus—was a
one-ring affair, with few elephants,
like as not no carmine sweating hippopotamus at all, and few specialists.
The acrobats doubled in brass in the
street parade, and the bareback riders, clowns and trapeze artists sang
and danced in the refined concert
after the big show. We have always
suspected that the bearded lady in
the side show wore trousers under
her petticoats and drove one of the
vans in the procession; we knew she
drank beer and wiped the foam off hei
beard on a flounce of her dress.
This wsb the old circus. Those who
have dwelt always in urban places
know little ol the delights of watching
it come into town. Like everything
else in this country it was doomed to
But in growing—and this is perhaps
a surprising fact—the old circus hsa
not lost its characters. It is still the
same agglomeration of wonders that
thrilled and held our youth; it is so
big that it is overwhelming, but it
has not lost its glamor. It is thc
only thing in the World that ever grew
up and still retained its youth.
Or, if youth does not breathe out ol |
the circus -upon you now, that is not
the fault of the circus; it is your fault,
You are getting old. You need attempt |
to lie to yourself no longer; frost has
touched your spirit. For the circus is
the touch-stone. If you are one of that
rare breed of men who never grow old
at heart you can laugh at the clown,
eat peanuts with relish, applaud the
elephant and thrill to the feats of the
trapeze artists when you are 98, il
rour grandchildren will take you to
the show when you are 98. But if
jv.u don't care for the circus, even
though you may be only 35, you ore
in the sere and yellow leaf.
Rebuilding Pompeii.
When first they began to dig out
long buried Pompeii everything found
there wns taken to Naples, leaving
nothing in the excavated places but
the bare ruined walls. Of late years
a more rational plan has been followed of leaving in place everything but
the smaller objects of interest and reproducing roughly the houses uncovered. Under tho present director, Professor Spinazzola, this idea has been
developed still further. He has almost entirely rebuilt some of the
houses, using all the material found,
even to the fragments of the roof tiles.
On the famous street of Abundance he
has rebuilt even the upper stories and
balconies and restored the windows
and facades. This gives a new idea
ol the style of the city of pleasure. A
recently uncovered fresco represents
Venus standing in a chariot drawn
by four elephants.
Compound Interest.
All interest is payable annually ol
oftener; therclore there is no such
thing as simple interest in the long
run. One dollar at compound interest
at 1 per cent, per annum will double
in a little less than seventy years—
to be exact, it doubles in 69.R6 years.
As near aa we can calculate, this
earth is about 3,000,000,000 years old.
If it took the earth 3,000,000,000 years
to grow, how much will interest grow
in that time? One cent at compound
interest at one per cent, per annum
for 3,000,000,000 years wi'.l amount to
to mucli that one vigintiilion balls of
gold, each as large as the sun, will
not then pay the interest for a billionth part of one second ol time.
Wetting an Actor.
Even water has its substitute on tht
stage. This is not water for drinking,
however, but for garments where an
effect of being wet is wanted. An actor
might come upon the stage actually
wet to the skin in real water, and
aside irom his dripping hair he would
not look wet. To make an actor look
actually wet a great quantity of vase-
lini is rubbed over hts clothes, when,
with hair dripping wet and tho lights
reflected upon the vaseline on hit
clothes, he hss every appearance ol
hiving just been fished out ol ths
river or ocean or whatever particular
body of water he is supposed to hav*
fallen or been thrown into.
