of thanks was tendered thu retiring
The event of the evening wns the
debate, "Resolved, That thf Mcln
tosh Red, the Wagener and the
Red Cheek Pippin are. Ihe three hest
varieties of apples for this district."
MessrB. Honsberger, Lawrence and
Roaike took the affirmative side,
aud Messrs. Cooper, Tweddle and
Armstrong the negative. Fiftten
minutes' time was allaitted to Ibe
leader of eacb siale, and ten min-
utej to the other speakers. Messrs.
C C Heaven, G. T. Moir and L. G.
Fowler were selected judges. The
president hoped the speakers wonld
CQnfine themselves strictly  to  facte.
J. D. Honsberger opened the de
bale. He confined his remarks to
a consideration of the Red Cheek
Pippin. In planting an orchard
six things should bc considered—
liardlness of the tree, adaptability
to the climate, early bearing, annual
bearing, cost of production, aud the
Commercial -vajue of the apple.
Hairdinets of the tree wus the foun.
dition of success-of the fiuit growing industry, ai the avoidance of
winter killing of trees gave stability
lo the business. Adaptability to
the climate included the proper
ripening, coloring, quality aud texture of thefruit. Early bearing gave
quicker returns on the money invested. Some varieties were naturally annual bearers, and the Red
Cheek Pippin was ons of tbem. In
thirteen years he had not lost a
crop. The cost of production included the labor of pruning, spraying, thinning, picking and packing.
Tbt commercial value of the fruit
depended on the season of ripening,
tbe demands of tbe market, keeping
shipping qualities, end tbe quality'a
anal appearand' of the apple. The
Red Cheek Pippin was one nf the
hardiest trees, and was adapted to
our climate; in fact, it grew io perfection here. He had grown it for
thirteen years. It usually bore the
sixlh year. One of the stmnge-t
features in ils favor was that it is an
annual bearer. He hud not known
it to fail to bear in thirteen yenr.
The cost of production of this variety was extremely low. Compared
wilh some other varieties a saving
in labor of $35 an acre could be
made, as ^t ' required lees'prunimj
aind thinning. The .tree produced
few culls, consequently there was
also a saving in packing. It was the
best late-season apple grown here,
li came in the nuirkel in February'
ft colored well, kept well, sold well,
and waa a good shipper.
W. A. Cooper, leader of the nega
live side of the argument, stated
that the opposition to lhe resolution
had selected the Wealthy, the Roim
Beauty an* thc .Jonathan as their
varieties.** Mr. Cooper took the
Wealthy as the subject for. his ad
dress, The Wealthy tree was one
of the hardiest known anywhere. jH'e
had seen goml Wealthy apples grown
7000 feet above sea level at Salt LhJw
Oity. This meant lhat tbis variety
could be grown on the highest
mountain- in the Boundary. The
tree wasexcepltonfilly free from dis-
•ase, was long lived, and a heavy
b -arer to the end. The tree was
small, aud 75 could be plnnted to
the acre, as oompared wii.lt 51) of
other varieties. It was a good money,
maker, and the fruit grower looking
for actual dollars would plant the
Wealthy. It was a good cold storage apple, as it always came out of
oold storage in fine condition.
J. T. Liwrence, second sp»aker
for the affirmative.side, devoted his
speech to the Wagener apple. Tbe
tree was considered hardy enough
for almost any section of lhe country, and if cut back well during the
first couple of years there wni no
danger from winter-killing during its
early stages. The Kettle valley was
really the home of tlie Wagener. The
tree was nn early hearer, usually
fruiting at two years. The apple
was of fine commercial value; it col
ored well, and its quality and tex
lure were unexcelled. It was an
early, annual and prolific hearer.
It wus uniform in size, and cost less
for packing than some other varie
ties. He had known the apple to
keep until May. It was in great demand wherever it had been introduced. He compared it only wilh
the Grimes Golden and the Jonathan.
W. F. Armstrong, the second
speaker for the negative side, spoke
strongly in favor of the Rome Beauty
and Grimes' Golden, and be. made
many telling points for these varieties. The Rome Beauty possessed
all the good qualities tbat Mr. Honsberger had claimed for tbe Red
Cbeek Pippin. It had heen strongly
recommended by Prof. Thornber, of
the Wsihington Agricultural college.
It cost less to produce than many
other varieties; ita flavor and texture
were good, aod it sold well and kept
well     Those wbo bad watched  the
Chicago apple during  the   present
season knew that the Rome   Beauty
hail been  quoted   higher   than any'
oilier variety!    'he  Giin.es  tiol'len
was a  goaul commercial   apple  ofJ
just lb* right size.    It  matured  ils j
Iruil perfectly   in   this  climate; was
easy   to   prune  aod 'thin, and pro
tiuced few culls.    There was a good
demand lor tbis apple.
James Hooke, the third speaker
forthe affirmative side, after, com
paring the various varieties under
discussion, said tbat the variety
which the commercial fruit gnawer
wished to plant should he guia4i.il by
the demands of the market to which
be desired lo culer. For example,
the Australian trade wauled- nothing but a small red apple. The ,\lc
intosh Red hhd a long season, and
avas a first class dessert and cooking
apple. He' Hilioilleal that the
Wealthy was a very l-aady tne, lull
the fruit grower eotihl not plant Buy
variety .that would yield better anu
pay larger returns ilion ibe Mcli -
tosh Red. Tbe Wagener was always
ill   strong  demand  at  good prices
The Spokane apple I tli bnd maije
i specialty of handling  this  vffrietj
this year.
A. B. Tweddle, tin- third speaker
on the negative siale, had selected
the Jonathan for hts theme, but In-
consumed so much of his ten min
u.tes in discussing fruft growing in
general thai he only hnd only
spoken a second or two on his sub
ject when time wais called. The Red
Cheek Pippin, he claimed, was not
well known. The Jonathan was
one of tbe few lending varieties 61
apples grown. A car of this variety
ut the Na ional Apple Show nl Van
couver had been proiiyuueed by the
jualges as the most perfect car ol
apples ever exhibited;
In his five minutes' reply, Mr
Honsberger said the Red Cheek
Pippin was grown extensively iu the
Hood River district. He reaal n
letter from Davis & Co endorsing
this variety, and one from J. A .McDonald, wholesale fruit dealer of
Nelson, praising the qualities of the
Wagener. In planting an orchard,
varieties should he chosen thai will
cover all the seasons of the year.
The judges, in rendering their
decision, staled that they based iheii
verdict on live points, viz., hard!
ness of tree, adaptability tu climate,
commercial value, cusl of produc
tion, and the manner of lhe presentation of the argument. They decided in favor of the affirmative by
11 points to G
After the debate, in answer to
questions, the information was volunteered by a member that wholesalers prefer shipments of carload
lots of one variety, while retailers
want mixed cars.

Lighthouse Without Keeper
A volcano on the island ot San
Salvador serves the purpose of a lighthouse, and it requires the attention
ol no keeper. Tho volcanic lighthouse is about eight miles inland
from the port of Acajutla. It is a veritable pillar of cloud by day and the
flash of Its light by night has been
. valuable to mariners tor years. It
can be seen far out at sea and a burst
of flame bas gone upward every seven
minutes without the variation of ..i
second for many years:
\ lighthouse fee is collected ot all
vessels that put In at the harbor nearest the volcano, and no skipper objects, 'le knows that tbe volcano is
more reliable than the lighthouses
kept by human beings on their coasts
and the novelty of tho light Is worth
tho price charged by the government.
A Cruet Stand
Several villagers were discussing n
departed sister, who had been given
to good deeds, but was rather too fond
of dispensing, sharp spoken advice.
"She was an excellent woman,"
said the deceased lady's pastor. "She
was constantly In the homes of the
poor and afflicted. In fact, she was
the salt of the eaith."
"She was more than that," remarked a villager. "She was the vinegar,
tho pepper und the mustard as well.
She was a perfect cruet stand of virtues."
Kindred Feeling
The new cook, who had come into
the house during the holidays, asked
her mistress: •
"Wbere ban your son? 1 not Bee him
round no nnre."
"My son," replied the mistress pride-
fully. "Oh, ho has gone back to Yale.
He could only get away long enough
to stay until New Year's Day, you see.
I miss him dreadfully, though."
"Yas, I knowing yoost bow you feel.

Zam-Buk is a Sure Cure
Mr. Jas. Davey, or 7S6 Ellice Avenue,
Winnipeg, says:—"A few months
elnce I was cured of a poisoned finger
through the timely use of Zam-Buk.
"I cut a doep gash across the
knuckle on the first finger of my
right hand in opening a lobster can. I
suffored at the time with the soreness

about two days I was greatly alarmed;
ae my whole hand and arm to the elbow became suddenly inflamed, and
the finger was much discolored, showing signs of blood-poisoning. The
pain was dreadful and I was forced
to leave off my work and go borne.
"The wound on the knuckle had
been poisoned by dust and dirt getting Into lt. I then decided to try the
Zam-Buk treatment, and haxlng first

Artificial Eyes
Artificial eyes originated ln Egypt.
At first, they were made of geld and
silver, then of copper and ivory. In
the sixteenth centcry porcelain was
the substance used, and the makers
advertised themselves by stamping
their names and addresses on the
white of the eye. Porcelain was superceded by glass, which again has given place to enamel.

C.P.R. (1,000 Wheat Prize
The prize of ?1,0"0 lu g-jhl o.lered
by Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, President of the Canadian Pacific Railway
for the best 100 pounds of hard red
wheat, grown in America and shown
at the forthcoming land show at New
York, ln November, ts arousing great
Interest among the Western Canadian
farmers The show, will bc the biggest ot its kind yet attempted and Is
being supported by all the leading
land and Irrlgalon Interests ln America, as such Is bound to be a success.
Sir Thomas Shaughuessy's prize of
$1,000 is not the only one of that magnitude that has been offered, but It is
relatively the most Important as
whereas the American prize givers
have been careful to limit the competitors to United States farmers, Sir
Thomas Shaughnessy has shown his
firm confidence ln Canadian products
by throwing the contest for his prize
open to all farmers of the continent
of Amorica. From the stand taken by
United States leading donators . of
prizes, it is very evident that they
are afraid that the Canadian farmer
might capture all tho prizes which
would bo a severe blow to the United
States agriculturalists, nearly all the
other competitions aro limited to the
United States farmers, Canadian farmers being ban-eft Evidently this Is
a free admission that Canadian farm
products are superior to those of the
United States and that the Americans are afraid to meet the Canadian farmers in open competition.
By offering a prize of this magnitude
Sir Thomas ShaughncBsy is doing a
great deal to encourage the Canadian
farmer to grow clean, healthy crops
and word received recently announces that as the time for competition of Sir Thomas Shaughnessy's
.piece of work, and it could hardly be
ing shown by the farmers In the land'
show. The farmers realize tliat the
contest Is of an international nature
and that Canada's reputation must bc
uphold. Consequently many farmers
in the West have ambitions to enter
the contest and enquiries as to the
conditions of the competition aro

Besides the $1,000 prize offered by
Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, Canada will
gain further prominence through the
C.P.K.'s exhibit. This exhibit will
be of an unusually novel and interesting nature and It will undoubtedly
make New Yorkers "sit up and take
notice". First of all there will bo a

other artists do with brush and can-
was. The honiesteud Is nn exquisite
piece of york. and' It could hardly he
believed that a picture, which at a
distance of ten feet cannot he distinguished from an oil painting, could be
constructed from the materials used.

grasses have been woven, la another
feature whicli Is sure to attract considerable attention. At present Mr.
Nash aud his assistants are designing

aud grasses is now being woven for
thc stucco figure of this elk which
will have real antlers. The eyes of
the elk will bo Illuminated from Ihe
inside and the whole figure, when finished will be a triumph of Ingenuity.

Ainerlcuu lady who was at tbat time
prominent in Berlin court society and
who afterward married a general lo
tbe German army.
Nevertheless tbe Imperial govern-
Bent know tbat Ihe secret bad been
divulged nnd tbat It wus lu my possession. Bow they made the discovery 1 have never learned. There was
a network of diplomats, newspaper
Ben, spies—Indeed, all manner of persons, every one watching the other
end all working secretly. Tbe moment I became possessed of thc Information I refer to without waiting for
baggage I went to a railway station
•nd started for Paris. I reached the
French capital without interruption.
On tbo way 1 thought out a plan to
use my secret In a way that would
neither compromise me or the lady
from whom 1 had received It 1 resolved to turn lt In to a London Journal to which I bnd nt times sent Items
•r news. But 1 remained ln Paris
twelve hours. This was fatal to my
getting clear of those wbom tbe chancellor of Germany sent ont to head
lue off.
I was sitting In my hotel on the Rue
Revolt waiting for a train to carry
Ue to Calais wben I saw a man enter
whom 1 had ouce seen ln the anteroom of an Important official of the
German government while we were
both waiting for nu audience. Fortunately I saw blm before he saw me,
or. rather, be did not see me at all.
It flashed through my mind tbat he
was after me. that bis purpose was to
I shew bs Bis "fixid" raft onaiaToa.
arrest me on a tramped np charge and
take me back to Berlin for trial. He
. went up to tbe hotel office, doubtless
to Inquire for me, and I slipped out
through s corridor leading to a back
> It was now evident that I wu followed. Bnt by how many persons?
1 knew the German chancellor's detectives were numberless and tbat be
would guard every avenue by which
I mlgbt escape blm. He knew tbat 1
wss a journalist and tbat the most
likely mart for tbe newt I possessed
was London. Therefore I was sore to
be tracked to lbe British capital. 1
Bust cbange my plan. 1 must go to
the place 1 would be least likely to
go. Tbougb I am an American, 1
would not be expected to go to America, because at least a week would be
required for me to get tbere. and food
for newspapers grows cold quickly
Nevertheless 1 believed thst my secret wonld keep ell tbat time unless
some new development In the situation
should occur. At any rate. I felt sure
that I wonld not be permitted to carry
or send my news to England, and If
1 wero to nse It at all I must take
time to "shake" my followers.
Departing' from my hotel en Rue
Rlvoll. t turned Into tbe Rue d'Alger,
tbence Into line St. Ilonore, from
wblcb I pursued my wny to s boulevard. Within another hour 1 wns on
■ train steaming for Cherbourg and.
String purchased a newspaper, looked
through the advertisements till 1 saw
tbst a ship wonld sail from there to
New York within a few hours after
By arrival.
i. I wu standing on deck just ns tbe
■bIp wss shout to cast off when n csb
nm* llcketv snllt toward lhe dock.   A
man got out. rnrew n ii»iii hi mi* <•-._»
man and just succeeded In getting
aboard as the vessel left tbe dock.
Something told me tbat he wns from
Berlin and that he was after me.
Whether be bad been sent to watch
that particular steamer or bad got on
my track I don't know.
At thst time tbe wireless telegraph
bsd just begun to be put on ocean
liners, and I was delighted to see thst
there was nn apparatus on the steamer
on which I sailed. As soon ss I bad
secured a stateroom-there are always
staterooms left over on steamers tttt
can be had for an extra conslderation-
I lounged up to the wireless office and,
tbe door being open, stood looking la
at tbe operator, wbo was sending t
message. I bad not been there Ore
minutes before tbe man who bad been
tbe last passenger to get aboard came
along. Our eyes met, and 1 knew, as
he knew, that be had spotted bis man,
Even If his manner bad not betrayed
him I should have known that be was
after me from bis coming as soon as
possible to the wireless office to head
me off from sending my message.
I wss greatly disappointed. On land
I sbonld bare expected to be refused
at any telegraph office; at sea I believed I would bave no trouble ln sending a wireless. Tbere was nothing to
prevent my sending my message from
the steamer except this man wbo wss
following me. I knew he would move
heaven and earth to prevent me. It
would be a war of wits between blm
and me. "-"
Tbere were many ways ln which be
could stop me. Be mlgbt charge me
with being a fugitive from justice;
he mlgbt make It appear that I had
stolen money or sbme article from blm;
he might even murder me. What was
my life worth compared with the Interests of an empire'? And would .not
bis sovereign be sufficiently powerful
to protect blm If be were implicated
In my taking off? Suppose I failed to
send my message at sea. Would he
not wire confederates ln New York to
arrest me on arrival on auy charge he
chose to Invent?
He weut Into the wireless office and,
telling the operator that be wished
to send a private message, shut the
door. When he came out I' kuew by
the look on his face Ibat be had
"fixed" the operator. Having done so,
he went away .and left me free to
send all the messages tbe young man
wonld transmit for me.
To test tbe latter I entered.hls office and asked blm to send a message
for me. He msde no objection, and I
dictated a message to an imaginary
person. In my profession I bad found
occasion to send telegraphic messages
myself and had learned tbe Morse alphabet I knew at once tbat tha operator wu simply clicking bis key without sending my message. Nevertheless I pretended not to suspect him
and paid bis chsrge.
. i bung around tbat office, studying
tbe working of the Instrument and especially tbe lock on the door. I watched
for three days for an opportunity to
get a wax Impression tbst would enable me to make a key, but the operator never left bis office without locking
the door and was never away very
long at a time. 1 often stood on deck
at nlgbt watching tbe apark over tbe
office wben he was sending a dispatch,
longing for just Ave minutes at tbe
keyboard myself.
What method tbe detective bad used
wltb tbe operator 1 did not know, bnt
It was effective. I became acquainted
wltb Dlck-everybody called the operator Dick—and used all my diplomatic
skill to find out bow I could outbid my
rival, but tailed signally. 1 hinted at
a way be mlgbt make »500. I conld
sea an amused look on bis face. I did
not possess the means to bid any
higher, and. bidding as I wss against
the empero** of Germany, money was
not a factor of tbe problem.
We had been five days ont, snd 1
hsd accomplished nothing. I knew
that my shallower must bave sent a
message to New Vork tbst would ln
some way pnt me In limbo on arrival.
Uy ouly chance to outwit blm was to
find some means of leaving tbe ship
before him on tbe day of arrival.
The stateroom opposite mine wss
occupied by nn old lady wbo carried
witb her a traveling clock. I lay
awake one night listening to Us ticking, snd it brought me a possible solution. I must steal thst clock. This
was not difficult, for the old lady's
stateroom door was seldom locked
snd every day was hooked open, Tbe
evening before we reached port I
purloined Ibe timepiece. Then I went
about looking for a box. navlng found
one. I put tbe dock In It, nailed on the
Ud and pot a fictitious address on It
Finding the captain alone ln his room.
I took the box to him and told him
that It had been given to me by a man
whose sanity I suspected, to be delivered to tbe address ou It In New
Tork. He had told me tbnt tt contained family jewels of great value, bnt
I bnd recently heard a ticking In It
and feared It contained a bomb to
blow up the ship.
Tbe captain, aghast, proposed st
once to henre II overboard, but I suggested thnt If be did so and destroyed
s fortune In jewels he wonld be beld
responsible.  This staggered* him.
"Uow   would  It do."  I  asked, "to
put the box Ui a oust and low it ai
tbe end of a long rope?"
"The very thing." he exclaimed.
It was midnight, and we were off
Montank Point Tbe captala ordered
a boat lowered with the box tn lt
and the rope payed" out. He then
went tn hla cabin and to sleep, while I
hid myself on deck and when dawn
came palled ln the boat-It required all
my strength—and just before passing
a steamer cast loose. I caught tbe attention of tbe steamer and was taken
aboard. Sbe was bound for Boston,
and the same evening from there I.
cabled my message to a London newspaper.
The next morning tbe world wss
startled st the news that Germany and
Russia were making a deal to appropriate a large slice of African territory and divide it Tbe publication
of thc news defeated the project,
which would surely hnve caused a

known to ooly a few prominent journalists, but tt made my fortune.

Massage For Naughtiness.
Almqst invariably when a child It
cross or naughty lt Is not feeling qulto
well.     -
Tbls fact appears to be recognized
In Japan. There If a child Is naughty
er sulky Its parent does not scold it or
whip It, but sends It out to bo messaged. And In a short time the child
comes back In the best of humor.
A well known worker, wbose experience both of Japan nud of mn!...\i ot
education Is very wide, told a newspaper representative that she 1b convinced of the efficacy ot the Japanese
treatment. "It may seem fnnny on
the face of It," sbe stated, "to massage
a child for naughtiness. But, then. If
tbe causes of naughtiness are physical
suitable remedies must be applied.
Very often tbe Irritability of children
arises from the fact that their stomachs are disordered."
And really tbe Japanese) plan is
worth a trial. Parents would probably be surprised at.the result Ono
cnn imagine tbe conversations at
breakfast, and lunch between husband
and wife. At breakfast tbe wife ob-
serves:- "Johnny is very naughty thl»
morning, my dear. I think you mnst
punish him severely." Tbe husband:
"Oh, no; that Is out of date. His little
stomach is upset He must be massaged." At luncb, the husband, "And
how Is Johnny now?" The wife, "Oh,
he was massaged, and ln bolt an bour
he had an angel temper."

ones of thin bread cut tn round, square

chopped nuts, peanut butter, celery
and mayonnaise, chopped olivet, tales,
figs or prunes, finely minced cress or
lettuce ss well ss the more proaalo

or ham. Cheese, too. Is nourishing
and delicious. One might Include a
cheese sandwich, for Instance, with
one of meat or lettnee. Then when
they are made and ready to be pecked
don't forget that a covering of tissue
or oiled paper will keep tbe bread
fresher and the sandwich daintier.

Prehistoric Lake
The United States geological survey has recently issued a bulletin
whioh traces the early geologic his

present Great Salt lake. In the Pie
istooent epoch western Utah contained a great lake, called by geolo
gists Lakt Bonneville. It wes 346
miles long, 145 miles wide, and over
1000 feet deep. It covered an area.
of nearly 20,00ft square miles—a

surfact ef the lake was about 5200
feet above the present sea level, oi

Itis reported that Great Britain is
negotiating with France for the five
little spots in India, widely separate I
and wholly surrounded by British territory, which are all that remain under the French Has to recall the
Anglo French struggle for the- mastery of India in the eighteenth century. These enclaves are of little

Poultry Farm
The establisment of a poultry demonstration farm in connection with
the department of agriculture haa
been in contemplation for some time
and it ia not unlikely that the legislature at the approaching session will be
uked to piovide the necessary fundi
for that purpose. Tht idea it that
suoh a farm shall be established in the
flrst instance in the neighborhood of
Viotoria. About Sva aorta of ground
would be required, and the initial expenses would be about f 8000. After
the first year when the institution has
been tried out and the required experience obtained, two' mora similar
farms would be established, one on the
lower mainland and the other in the
interior of. the provinoe.
These poultry farms are not intend-
ed to be in any seose"experimental,
but   purely   for demonstration purposes.    It  is  calculated   that  they sionei   is   now in  Washington with

Member of the Family—A Daily
Study for Old and Young
'PHE Family Herald and Weekly Star ol Montreal, acknowledged to be
I tbe greateet and best family and farm paper on thi continent, haa on
many occasions given its readert mint delightful premium pictures,
hut this season they have secured what it btytad any question of doubt
the best picture ever offered newspaper sum. It it entitled "Home
Again" and describes a touching but joyful incident between two (riends
who meet after anxious separation.
"Laddie," a collie dog, famous for hit beauty and gentleness, winner
of many prizes at dog snows, the pride ol the family and neighborhood,
Iiiib been stolen, and after many days' absence he escapes one night from
his captor and returns home on a snowy winter's morning with the rope
which he broke in his struggles for freedom dangling frnm 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
whioh bring her mother and brother to the door. "Laddie" is equally
delighted to be "Home Again," and answers her welcome by putting his
paws on her shoulder and resting hig head against her breast with a little
whine, which in his dog language means—"Where I love is Home."
The sweet-faced young mother, a woman of soft curves, tender eyes
and parted lips—-the two glad-eyed children—an eager hoy 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
the beautiful collie, all go to form a picture that will win a favored place
on the walls of any home.
The picture is by the celebrated artist, Arthur J. Elsley, famous for
' his skilful and sympathetic painting of children and animals.
The beautiful picture "Hom9 Again" on heavy plate paper 22x*2i)
inches all ready for framing will be mailed FREE to every subscriber of
The 8un and Family Herald and Weekly Star lor 1912.
The small sum of $1.50 will secure the two papers fnr a full year including a copy of the charming picture "Home Again," which alone is
easily worth a two dollar bill, in fact it could not be bought at that price.
Every home in the Boundary should get the big $1.50 worth this

with henna was us.d long ago by the
Arabian women; now henna hair is
seen everywhere in every civilised
land. With dyeing pretty well done
with henna, scientists have gone in

to perfection, with animal, vegetable
and mineral substances, dyes to produce any desired shade and to Imitate nature so perfectly that ha.r, no

In the old Indian days Hie hair
used to grow to a wonderful length,
and to this day families having a
strain of Indian blood often late in
life have a full suit of hair with little

of the Indians used to grow to the
great length of 12 feet, and on the
men at that; and thosa old foxy folk
often made it look thicker and longer by weaving into it certain fibers.

The South Sea Waves.
We all remember with what frequency in the old narratives of experience in the South' Sens reference is
made to the heavy swells of the
ocean, which impressed the navigators
with the idea of their remoteness from
The great size of the sea waveB. in
high southern latitudes has been explained by ths fact that south uf thc
Cnpe of Good Hope and Cape -Horn
there is neither windward nor leeward shore, and tho prevailing wTnd in
ill longitudes is westerly. Thus when a
west wind springs up it finds a long
westerly swell, me effect of a previous wind, still running. The newborn wind increases the steepness of
tliis swell aud so forms majestic
storm waves, which sometimes attain
a length of 1,200 feet from crest to
crest. The average height attained
by sea waves in feet is about half the
velocity of the wind in miles an hour.

In most countries the introduction

unmixed blessing, but it was not so'
in Korea. The postoffice erected there
in 1835 had but a brief existence. The
mob', in their blind hatred of all innovations, rioted and burned it to the
ground. The natural result was to
make Korean stamps of the first ist.ue
in a used state of great value. The
matter was allowed to drop ior a

An amusing incident ot a child's
misconception of the words of a popular hymn occurred recently at a Sunday School ln Sommersetshire. The
teacher, turning to -the girl at the
head of the class—to- whom was accorded the privilege ot choosing the
hymn to be sung before closing the
school—asked, "What hymn would
you like, Bessie?" "Please, sir," replied tne' girl, "the hymn about the

What do you mean?" "Please, sir, was
the answer, "the hymn tbat says, 'Can
