Grood Land in Far North.  Honorable Frank Oliver is en  route to Ottawa from'his extended  trip into the" new country to the  north of "Edmonton. ~ He , reports  the most favorable conditions for  the -future development of that  district.-  In extent the new country equals  the area of the older prairie belt in  which settlement has been so active  for some time. According to Mr.  Oliver this new area of country  well merits investigation and its  settlement will mark another epoch  in the progress of western agricultural development.  Both the soil and the climate are  favorable to agriculture as it is  carried on at present in the west.  Although this new country lies  well to the north, Mi*. Oliver found  that the mountain ranges to the  west are lower than they aie further south and that since the passes  are, wider access is made for the,  warm coast breeze. Their action,  together with those of the Japanese  currents,* greatly moderates the  I'limate and compensates to a great  extent for the advantages gained  by a moro southern po'-ition.  * Mr. Oliver states that good re-  Hills can be* obtained in raising  grain -is far north as Good Hope  on the McKenzie river. Mixed  fin ttiuig nnd gardening is found to  In- iq*i*illy j-uceesrt-ful as far north  us Good Hope. This is practically  p-Hlnng b-n-k r.he productive zone  ro dm Arctic circle. Mr. Oliver  Kiwioi.nces that thirty township.*-  nn- now open for settlement in the  new district.  The mini**M-r ro the interior was  gone from Edmonton two months  and two days. A great part of his  journey wns by canoe. While  away he. crossed fiom McKenzie  river to the Yukon, a distance of  sixty-six miles, accompanied by "a  party of North-west Mounted police. Iu addition to lands suitable  to agriculture, -the minister also  found extensive timber limits, especially in the region of Peel river.  This timber, he affirms, i* well  suited for maimfiicture. The min-  ii-'ter iif the inteiior i& exceedingly  optimistic over the possibilities ol  this country, which combines tbe  conditions of favorable soil and  climate with those of rich natural  resources.���������Farmers' Tribune.  DEFINITIONS OF A KISS.  A young lady sends us the following,  which she says she now believes to be  correct, although for many, many years  she thought it all a myth, and her best  advice is, 'Trove all things."  A kiss is an insipid and tasteless morsel, which becomes delicious and delectable iu proportion ns it is flavored with  love.  The sweetest fruit on the tree of love,  the oftener plucked the more abundant it  grows.  A thiug of use to no one; much prized  by two.  The baby's right, the lover's privilege,  the parent's benison and the hypocrite's  mask.  The food by which the flame of love is  fed.  The only known "smack" that will  calm a storm.  A telegram to the heart, in which the  operator uses the sounding system.  The sweetest labial ' of the world's  language.  Not enough for one, jusL anough for  two, too much for three.  The only teally agreeable hvo-fared  action under the sun, or the moon cither.  A woman's most effective argument,  whether to cajole the heart of a father,  control the uioodii of a husband, or to  console the griefs of childhood.  Thc thunderclap of the lips, which  inevitably follows the lightning glance  of the eyes.  A report lo headquarters.  What the child receives free, what the  young innu steals, and the old nun buys.  The cup that runneth over when thc  cup of love is full,  Phoenix will celebrate Labor Day  -Bob Perry is spending a few  days in the city.  Dave .Keith'died in Stewart a  short time ago.

The 620,000 offered by the Spokane Interstate Fair management  for tbe week of October 3 to 9 is  attracting wide attention iu horse  circles. Interest centers in the  Spokane Derby, the purse for which  is 62,000, double that of any previous Derby. The field will probably be tho largest and fa"test in  tho fair'u history. Hoborb F. Loig-  ton, superintendent of the speed  department, writes that horsemen  everywhere are enthusiastic over  the Spokane meet. ''On account  of tho gieat number of horses attending the Butte meeting," says  Mr. Leighton, "I consider that  your stake races will fill exceptionally well, the feature event���������the  Spokane Derby���������having excited  much favorable com mot on tho Association's liberality in offering a  purse of such magnitude."  The pies are just as good���������thc  degeneration is iu tho eater.  The contract for the extension  of the Kettle Valle}- railway line  from llock creek to Bull creek on  the west fork of the Kettle river,  a distance of thirty-five "miles, has  been awarded to L. M.

Several mechanics in Marcus were telegraphed for and responded.

A portion of the  machinery for the mill is already  on the ground and the remainder  has been ordeied from a machinery  bouse in Denver.  The Napoleon is considered one  of the best mining properties in  the north-west and the prediction  is freely made that ore shipments  from this property will more than  equal.those from the First Thought  before very long. The property is  uow owned by the B. C. Copper  company, Mi. Keller, superintending engineer of the company, has  the work under his personal supervision. It is said on good authority that tho plan of work now laid  out will require six years to complete, and will be the most thorough line of development ever attempted in the north-west.   -  The cyanide plant will have a  capacity of 100 tons per day, but is  being constructed in such a manner  that the daily output can be easily  doubled. The tram has a capacity  of 500 tous daily.���������Marcus Messenger.  News of Nelson.  Frank Hawthorn will become a  benedict^ upon September 25.

I think-  the editor is one of tbe.missing links we  read ubout and stayed.in the.bushes unti.U  after the flood, and theji.came ,out ,and  wrote the thing up,  and has ,been*.here  ever since.   I don't think he eyer; died.  I never saw a dead one or heard, of, one.  getting licked.   Our paper is^a^mighiy-*  good one; but the editor goes without  underclothes all   the. winter  and  don't  wear any socks and pa ain't paid his ������������������  subscription since the paper started.   I   .  asked pa if that was why the editor h^d ~~  to suck the juice out of the snowballs .in.-  winter and go .to bed when he had a.;.  shirt  washed  in  the  summer.    Abcut".  then pa took me out in the woodshed  and he licked me awful "hard.   If the .  editors   make   mistakes   folks   say * ,he  ought to be hung; but if a doctor niakes  any mistakes he buries them and people  dassent say nothing because doctors cap .  read or write Latin.   When the editor,  makes mistakes there is lawsuits, ,an.d  swearing, and a big fuss; but .if the doctor makes oue there is a funeral, .cut  flowers and a perfect silence.   A doctor  can use a word a yard long without him  or anybody knowing v, hat it means; but  if the editor uses one he has to spell it.  If the doctor goes to see another man's  wife he charges for the visit; but if the  editor goes he gets a charge of buckshot.  When the doctor gets drunk its a case of  being overcome with the heat and if he  dies its a case of heart trouble.   When an  editor gets drunk its a case of too much  booze, and if he dies it is the jhnjams.  Any college can make a doctor, but an  editor has to be born."  THE MAN WHO WINS.  The man who wins is the man who does,  The nun who makes things hum and  buz/.,  The man who works and the man who  acts,  Who builds on a basis of solid facts;  Who  doesn't  sit  down   to   mope  and  dream,  But humps ahead with the force of steam;  Who hasn't the time to fuss and fret,  But gets there every time���������you bet!  Ihe man who wins is the man who wears  A smile to cover his burden of cares;  Who knows that the sun will shine again,  That the clouds will pass and we need  thc rain;  W ho buckles down to a pile of work,  And never gives up and never will shirk  Till the task is done and the toil made  sweel,  While thc temples throb with the red  blood's heal.  The man who loses is he who moans  That the way is rough and he dreads the  stones;  Who is looking for something soft to do,  Where the pay is big and the hours few;  Who dreems of this und dreams of that,  But never uiils in and throws off his hat;  Who feels the fear of a drop of sweat,  And never gets anywhere���������you bet.   .  Thc tiiun who wins is the man who climbs  The ladder of life to the cheery chimes  Of the bells of labor, the bells of toil,  And isn't afraid that his skin will spoil  If he faces the shine of the glariug sun  And works iii the light till the tusk ii  done���������  A human engine with triple beam  And u hundred and filly pounds of steam.

Greyhound  2nd,  Kangaroo Also  Ran.  Most people have heard of those  animal races which are a popular  ttature of gymkhana meetings, but it  tr.ay b,j e^ained that for an animal  race the competitor enters any sort  of animal he likes, except a' horse or  a dog, and drives or guides his champion to the winning-post.  Now,'we will tuni'the Derby into an  animal race, open to the whole animal  Kingdom. We will suppose that each  animal runs throughout at the greatest speed of which it is capable, and  that they don't interfere with each  other.  First of all the field. Some animals  ���������such as cattle���������are, obviously, too  slow to stand a ghost of a chance, and  so wo will line.up,'the following ten  starters: Hare, lion, roebuck, grey-  hound, horse, giraffe, elephant, kangaroo, dromedary, and ostrich���������the  ast-named  because, although a bird,  "    r T1S', a,nd ru"s mig'-ty fast, too.  Indeed, here it may as well be said  that, if you want to win money on an  annual race, you back the ostrich  every,time, for he is the fastest thing  on land, and only one bird can beat  him���������namely, thc swallow. Tho ostrich, then, would win our animal  Derby with the g������oatest possible ease,  tor he would cover'the 1 mile 4 furlongs and 29 yan������ of the Dei by course  at the amazing speed of 109 miles an  hour���������that is, nearly three times as  fast as any horse ever foaled could do  it, and, roughly, twice as fast as any  other competitor among those named,  llio recoid time for thc Derby was  made in I90G; when-Major Loder's  iipearinint won in 2 minutes 36 4-5th  seconds. Tho ostrich would take,  roughly,   53  seconds.  But who would be second? Probably the kangaroo will have a good  many'adherents, for, outside Austra-  ha, people have the idea that the  kangaroo hops along at a tremendous  pace. But the kangaroo would finish  down the course," absolute last!  A kangaroo is a slow animal, 7 1-2  miles an hour king his best speed.  !��������� or second place, it would be a fairly  close fight between the greyhound  and the roebuck. A greyhound can  go nearly a mile a minute���������54 miles  an hour, to ba exact���������and this would  just bring him home ahead of the roebuck, whose best speed is a'tiifle over  50 miles an hour.  Now, for-Tourth place. The hare  seems a likely choice; but again you  would be wrong. A lion can give a  hare a start and a beating. A lion <s  capable of 45 miles an hour, but the  hare is fully extended at 4 miles an  hour less.  What about the horse? Well, 38  miles an hour is the thoroughbred's  Hunt, and that brings him into sixth  place. Spearmint won his Derby st  the rate of, roughly, 35 miles an hour,  but a horse is capable of 38 miles an  hour over a short distance.

The majority of  these men are old embezzlers, and  there seems to be little doubt that  thoy are able to live well and keep  going J/ivishly furnished 'residences  because the money they stole was  hidden by them before being arrested  and sent to prison..  There   are   thousands   of   pounds'  worth of valuable property looted by  thieves from various sources that lies  ���������juried in odd corners of Britain and  will  probably* only  be  recovered 'by  the men themselves on their release.  Oases are constantly occurring where  an embezzler afler running off with a  aige sum in gold refuses to divulge  tlie   hiding   place   of   his. ill-gotten  gams.   He is sent to prison, and the  loot   remains   unrecovered.    In' nine  cases out of ten the embezzler; finding  arrest  imminent,   buries   bio    stolen  property and digs it up again when  lie  comes out of prison.  , A man who was for many years an  inmate of one of our prisons is now  living m affluence in a town up north.

A profound lethargy ensues, distinguishable fiom death only by the  slight beating of the heart. The waste  is vary small.

It ultimately came  to light that the money which had  been stolen by means of the forged  checks had been buried under tho  flooring in a Soho house.  Some fifteen years ago a Hindu  merchant who had come to London  to make purchases of gems was robbed of many thousands of pounds.  The thieves carried their ill-gotten  wealth to a cheap tenement in White-  chapel; but, finding the police hot on  their track, they carried the loot one  dark night to a remote spot on the  Essex marshes and secretly buried  it.

He declares that  Inspector D.'ckens, son of the great  novelist, being deaf and incompetent  for tho position, sent out scouts with  Mr. McLean. Had they remained at  the fort, McLean is almost sure that  an arrangement could have been  reached whereby the Indians would  have gone back to their reserves. They  in fact had about decided to abide by  the Hudson Bay agent's advice, when  the two policemen came along and  upset everything,  Waiting  for the  Smash  Partner���������Now that your son has fin-  ished his course, what comes next?

Sleep for skin-tortured babies and  rest for tired, fretted mothers is found  in a hot bath witli Cuticura Soap and  a gentle anointing with Cuticura Ointment. This treatment, in the majority of cases, .affords immediate relief  in the most' distressing forms of  itching, burning, scaly and crusted  humors, eczemas, rashes, inflammations, irritations and chafings of infancy and childhood, permits rest and  sleep to both parent and child, and  points to a speedy cure, when other  remedies fail. Worn-out ancl worried  parents will find this pure, sweet and  economical treatment realizes their  highest expectations, and may be applied to the youngest infants as well  as children of all ages. The Cuticura  Remedies are sold by druggists every-  where.  Thousands Would Do the Same.  A    pretty    story    concerning    Mr.  W. H. Lever, of Sunlight soap fame,  is going tlie rounds.   At an outing of  the children of Port Sunlight two little girls invited Mr. Lever to go with  them on thc switchback railway. Like  a jovial schoolboy he consented.   As  they were going along one little girl  said, "I've been in one of these" before  at  New   Brighton.    I've  got  a   rich  aunt there."   "Oh, indeed!" said Mr.  Lever.   "Yes," went ou the little one,  "she has got ������200 saved up."   "But  you've  got  more  than that,  haven't  you, Mr. Lever?" inquired the other  child.   "Well, you know," replied Mr.  Lever,   seriously,   "I   keep   spending  my money, aiid you can't have money  if you spend it, can you?"   "And are  you very poor now?" asked the first  tiny girl, anxiously. "Well," said Mr  Lever,  "I keep spending, and whatever shall I do when all my money is  gone?."    Almost   simultaneously   his  small   companions    shouted,   "Come  and live with us!"   "I have received  a large number of invitations in my  lifetime," says Mr. Lever, "but none  so dear and so sweet to me as that."  "Are marriages made in heaven?"  The lecturer paused, as if for answer  to his interrogation; whereupon a man  with a hunted look glanced furtively  over his shoulder, swallowed hard,  moistened his lips ancl said, huskily:  "Do strawberries grow at the North  Pole?"  A  Daring  Noblewoman.  Lady  Ernestine   Hunt,   the  eldest  daughter of the Marquis of Ailesbury,  is the lirst woman to receive a commission as lieutenant in the medical  branch  of the  tenitorial division  of  the British army.    Lady Hunt is ail  unusual woman.   She was one of the  half dozen  adventurous  women  who  took   part   in   the   Jameson   raid   in  South   Africa   in  1896,  in connection  with the ambulance department.   For  some years now she has divided her  time between a little place she has in  Ireland aud her ranch in-Canada. At  the latter place she - is an extensive  breeder of horses, which are sold in  London and Dublin at very remunerative prices, thus making her ranch  ing adventure an exceedingly profitable one.  Of Fighting Stock.  ^ .is-,fifty-eight years ago since Admiral Sir Edward Seymour, who, having attained his seventieth birthday  is  eompulsorily  retired from the active list of the royal navy, joined as  a midshipman at the age of twelve.  He comes of a fighting family, for hi?  .grandfather was created a baronet fot  many gallant actions during the great  ���������war with France.    It was one of his  uncles too, Sir Michael Seymour, who  commanded the Fleet in the Chinese  waters at the outbreak of the second  China war in 1&53, in which war Sir  Edward,   as    a   midshipman,   served  with    distinction.     He    was    badly  wounded   in  1870  while  rescuing  an  English   vessel   from   pirates   in   the  Congo River, and in 1860, as a mate  in Cliina, he earned the Civil medal  of the Royal Humane Society for his  gallant effort to 'save the life of a marine who had  fallen overboard.  Pit Boy to Sheriff.  The sheriff of Nottingham, Councillor Thomas Ward, who was recently  presented by the members of the Nottingham Board of Guardians with an  illuminated address, has had a most  romantic career.    Mr.  Ward,  who is  fifty-two  years  of  age,   was  born  of  humble  parents,   his  father  being  a  framework  knitter,  and   was sent  to  Nottingham Workhouse  School.    For  some time he worked in a Nottingham  coal-pit, and when eighteen, owing to  a strike at the colliery, he obtained  a   Government  free   passage  to  Australia, where he worked in the gold-  fields.      Returning    to     Nottingham  about thirteen months later, in 1877,  he secured a position as a porter in  a yeast factory, and  by his industry  and devotion to duty he became salesman,   then  partner,   and    eventually  owner of the business and factory.  . Baby's Own Tablets should be kept  in every home where there are infants  and young children, and at first sign .  of  illness   during  tlie    hot    summer  months they should  be given to the  ittle one.   At no time of the year is  baby in such danger as  in "summer.  Summer complaints come on so quickly that unless prompt aid is at hand  the little one may be beyond help in  a few hours.    The Tablets never fail  to  relieve  the'sick  child,  and  if occasionally given to the well child they  will keep him well.   Mrs. P. Laroche,  Los  Fqnds,   Que.,  says:���������"Last  summer my baby suffered severely from'  stomach  and  bowel  troubles  but the  prompt  use   of   Baby's   Own  Tablets  saved his life."   The Tablets are sold  by medicine dealers or by mail at 25 ���������  cents a box from The Dr.  Williams'    '  Medicine Co., Brockville, Orit.  "Money makes the mar'e go."

Lord Knellys, who is to be private  secretary   to  George   V'.,  acted   in   a  similar capacity to thc late King for  nearly   forty  years.    His  lordship  is  the only man who can approach His  Majesty at all hours ancl under any  circumstances.   Lord Knollys delights  in relating an amusing malupropism  in which Tie figured recently.   A/gen-  tlenian-in-waiting,   who   was   anxious  to obtain some favor from the King,  but was too nervous to interview His  Majesty,   sought   the   assistance   of  Lord Knollys.   "I do not like to speak  to tlie King," said tlie applicant, "because lie might not care to listen to  mc.    It   would   be a  different  thing,  though,  if it  were yourself, Knollys,  for, of course, there is nothing of the  'gentleman' about you."  The  Blue of Sapphires.  Star  sapphires  are  generally  of  a  grayish blue tint, and the star is exhibited in its greatest perfection when  looked at by the light of the sun or a  candle.   The sapphire is found of all  tints and shades of blue, but the color  which approximates to the shade formerly   called   "bleu   do   roi"   is   the  most   valuable.     A   really   fine   sapphire should appear blue by artificial  light as well as by day.    This stone  is found in crystals generally of much  larger size than the ruby.   The name  sapphire   is   perhaps    the   only   one  which   runs   through   all   languages  with  very  slight  alteration���������the   Hebrew name sapphir, the Chalda sapir-  inon,   the   Greek   amfiiros,   the   Latin  sapphirus, etc.  USE OF ALUM  IN MICHIGAN  State Chemist F.  W. Robinson, in  an   interview  some  days  ago,  stated  that Baking Powder Companies have '  for months been terming sodium aluminum  sulphate  as  one  of  the  ingredients used in the manufacture of  baking powder,  which    when    sifted  down was nothing more or less than  alum.   This he claims will soon    be  used by many of the States as an entering  wedge to  prohibit  the  use  of  that substance in baking powder and  many other foodstuffs.   Michigan has  no law preventing the use of alum, but  there  is  a  stringent law  against the  use of substances in foodstuffs that are  injurious   to  the  public  health.    According to the Pennsylvania decision  alum is classed as such, and action  may be taken in Michigan to prevent  the sale of baking powder containing  It.  An  Opalized   Snake.  What is supposed to be an opalized  snake has been discovered by a prospector   at   White   Clilfs   opal   fields.  South   Australia,   from   whom   it  has  been secured by an Adelaide resident,  named  S.  Saunders.    On a piece of  ironstone, dark  brown  in color, and  therefore  making an  excellent  background to show off the precious stone,  was embedded   the  form  of a  small  snake or  lizard   of  pure  opal.

They Saw Things.  A remarkable development occurred  in connection with the death of William Henry Hulsmann, a dentist, of  Forestfach, near Swansea, Kng., who  was stated at an inquest to have died  from a morphia and atropine injection. The funeral was arranged, but  was postponed on account of alleged  evidences of life. The body, whieli  had been in the eoflin, was stated to  have changed color, the face and lip**  gardually becoming pink. Doctors  were called in and after a thorough  test certified the man quite dead, attributing the supposed change in  color to imagination.  Mount Etna.

These things cannot be hidden  so much in the West as in the  East. Here communities are small  and sudden changes in a man't*  fortune are patent to all. And a  few sucl examples have helped to  turn whole communities into active  government opponents.  These are some of the factois  which ought to have lost tbe West  to  the Laurier ministry.    If the  Prime Minister can  convince  the  West that his government is reasonably clean,   that honesty  is a  chief   recommend    to    promotion  among  his ollicials, that  political  manipulation for private  financial  gam is frowned upon and punished,  that a  petty  pyptprn  of   pilfering  does not run through many of the  departments of   the  government,  then   his   ministry   may   have   a  chance  of holding  its own in the  West,   when  the day of political  judgment arrives.  The issue is moral rather than  political.  MISCK.I.r.AXlC'IT/S.  j-^-g-gat-*^^  Mint juleps and other summer  drinks at Windsor.

A hobby is a safe  thing; men with hobbies do not usually  worry. Follow these directions, says  Dr. Hutchison, and you will be even able  to dispense with a portion of that almost  inevitable ten per cent, of worry that  comes as part ol the primal curse. All of  which sounds so reasonable and probable,  and which has so often been demonstrated in the individual life, that it is a  continued wonder that more do not try  the cure.���������Ottawa Journal.

I     Shop, Greenwood,   \  t ������  A CURE FOR WORRY.  When a man begins to carry his troubles  to bed with him, and ponder over them  instead of going to sleep, then look out  for squalls. Such is the dictum of Dr.  Woods IIuLcliisoii, one of the leading  health authorities of thc United States.  Worry, he claims, is a disease whose  symptoms are as definite, whose course is  as fnlal, and whose cure is as simple, as  many oilier of the better known and  more plainly charted ills to which flesh  is heir.  Life, according to Dr. Hutchison's analysis, is nine parts happiness and content lo one of gloom and misery. When  the proportions of worry assume charge  of more than ouc;lcuth of a man's time it  is, says this authority,,a plain sign of a  physiological condition that, in time,  will become extremely serious.  And men have to strive to obtain and  retain this 'nine-tenths of contentment.  Discussing this aspect, Dr. Hutchison  says: ���������'*���������'".���������  "It is really appalling when we come  to consider it broadly���������the narrowness,  the monotony, the everlasting repetition  of average workaday life; the prospect of  performing the same petty duties day  after day, month after month, year after  year, with nothing to end it short of the  great sleep. Variety is. not merely the  spice of life, but its salt, the-very essence  of itscoiitintiaiice. Intelligent recreation,  interests outside -of the daily Krind,  changes of scene���������these are not merely  luxuries, they ure the necessaries of life."  Abont'tl.e best and only cure for too  THE,ORDER OF THE BATH,  " An ' English newcomer who went to  work on a. farm in Canada, complained:  "By Jove, a fellow can't get a bath, you  know, unless he takes it in a muddy pond  or in awash-tub."  To the average Englishman, his bath  comes before his morning devotions aud  often it is his only devotion���������the god he  worships. While some people bathe themselves into weakness, and desire, like thc  mythical gods, to lie prone otl the seashore, or some celestial hill, bathing  their limbs in the sea or the sun's rays,  from morn to dewy eve, till their bodies  shine like burnishcii armour���������there arc-  others who observe the happy medium  and content themselves with a bath every  morning.  There are still' others who only take a  bath once a week, while.it has been  whispered, though it cannot possibly be  true, there are people to whom the word  "bath" is meaningless.  The South Sea Islanders are fond of  their ocean bath and though their skin is  brown, it is clean.  Cleanliness is not only next to godliness, it is part of it, and men and women  full of pains and aches and consequent  crankiness, have been known to come  from a bath refreshed in body and mind���������  all the cobwebs swept from the brain and  the aches from the body. Some like a  warm, others a cold batft���������each should do  as is best for the bather���������only, young  and old iu this fair laud of lakes and  rivers, should bathe. In this day of  cheap bath-tubs, every house should have  one���������not a wash-tub, but a bona fide  bath, in which one can stretch the dusty,  tired limbs and splash blissfully, until  the body is refreshed and comes forth  cleansed and rejuvenated.  An old English woman said once, "I  take a cold bath* every morning. I have  done it all my life." She lived, and was  hale and hearty, when younger women,  who were careless of their bath, wasted  and died.  Il we remember that the pores of the  akin are outleU to carry away thc waste  matter in the body, we will see that frequent washings of the whole body are  necessary to keep the pores in au active  condition. A hot bath, followed by a  cold shower, is the best as a skin cleanser,  for while the hot water opens the pores  and allows the impurities to escape, the  cold water closes them again and acts as  a tonic to the skin. Tired aud worried  "folks" go to sleep like children, after a  warm bath, There is much talk of the  simple life. One of the "simples" which  costs nothing, and "slams the door on  the doctor's nose," is the bath, with its  cleansing, health-giving . power. To be  sure one must know when to bathe���������m  the morning or evening, if possible���������  never, after eating, for at least two hours.  If a sponge bath can only be taken, let it  be in a warm room, to avoid chill, with a  vigorous rub-down after.
