The salty, ocean breezes and heaJthfu'l  climate, coupled with the rich grazing, give  Nova Scotia wool a quality which is not  found anywhere else.  Nova Scotia wool is perfectly blended.  It is-soft and smooth, yet staunch and  strong.- It can-be spun like silk and wears  almost like steel. Garments, knitted of this  .fine wool, give the desired warmth and are  not heavy or bulky.  It is no exaggeration to say that the  Stanfields get the pick of the Nova Scotia wool..  The founder of these mills did much to develop  the sheep-raising industry throughout the  Maritime Provinces. The farmers saved their  best wool for him, and continue to send their  high grade wool to the Stanfield mills.  Then, too, this, wool reaches the mills in the best possible condition. There  are no long riiilroad hauls���������no lengthy journeys in the holds of tramp steamers.  The wool is shipped direct to Truro as soon as sheared.

The Saturday News of Edmonton  says:  When Lord Northcliffe addressed  Ihe newspaper men in Edmonton .the  ether day,' he urged that they should  give more attention to imperial ancl  international .problems in their columns. Later Premier Rutherford  told'them that their papers'were too  [severely local. Yet with all due deference to these distinguished men, the  country publisher probably know a  good deal better than they do what  the readers want. The perils of  launching out. too much on affairs ot  world-wide interest are well illustrated by the case of that sunniest of  Sunny Alberta's journalistic 'guides,  philosophers and friends, "H.D.," he  of .the Cabbage Patch at Beaver  Lake, who' writes for The Vcgreville  Observer. In the last issue of The  Observer he has this to say:  "Dan tells "me there are quite a lot  of Observer readers down in Eoii-i  frew and they are not satisfied with  me. I don't give enough local items;  Ideal too much in generalities, ���������metaphysics and philosophy.

One long; three short, one long, and  down'.'it goes."  'If all the disquisitions of a general  character that found their way into  the country press were on a par with  those which come from Beaver Lake,  there would be few who would join  in such protests as that which originated at Renfrew. But "H.D." is in  a class by himself. The best part of  most district ��������� papers, both for the  local and the general reader, is that  which has to do with the evcry-day  life of -the people.

Address, Thc Secretary, Wlnmpcp  Business College, Corner Portage Ave  mid Fort St., Winnipeg, Man,  Sir Glenholme Made Popular Reading  of   Intricate   Case.  When one of the feminine reporters  on the staff of one of Toronto's evening papers found herself some time  since shifted for the occasion to Os-  goode. Hall, where she was expected  tj go and secure a story of what happened in court where ^an important  case was being heard, she wondered  how she would get along.  After she had been five minutes iii  the court she ceased wondering, for  she realized that it was utterly beyond  her. She did not understand what  the lawyers were driving at, or what  the judge was talking about. In short  she. felt that her life was a complete  failure for the time . being. She resolved to stick it out, however. She  tried to make notes, but the notes  were mere absurdities. But she was  not going to let the thing get away  from her entirely, and when the lawyers were leaving, she plucked up  courage and moved up to where Chief  Justice Falconbridge sat on the  bench. To him she gave a stated case,  but she did it in an unusual way.  "I didn't really understand a word  ot what was said, and more -than that,  if you were to tell me all about it, 1  shouldn't understand it, I am.sure,"  she told the chief justice.  Sir Glenholme Falconbridge was secretly much amused at this naive  form of address.  "You even admit that if I were to  explain it, you would not understand,  eh���������well,-I'll see what I can do for  you." #'���������.'������������������  Whereupon the chief justice pulled  a pad of paper towards him, took up  a pen, and for the next twenty minutes engaged himself in getting up a  "popular" account of the intricate  court action. He finally handed it  over to the young woman, bade her  good-bye, and then hurried away to  ���������lunch.  Next day the managing editor of the  newspaper congratulated the reporter  on her court story, and she confessed  that it was air written by the chief  justice.  The   Last Spike.  A recent book contains an account  of the construction of the Canadian  Pacific Railway, and the last page  contains a story which may be repeated here. Mr. Carter notes that -the  j people of this country are a thrifty  folk, the reason perhaps being that  Scotchmen are numerous and influential here. He says that the ceremony  of driving the last spike of the C.P.R.  was conducted on economical lines.  "The last spike," said General Manager Van Home, "will be just as  good an iron one as there is between  Montreal and Vancouver. Any one  who wants to see it driven will have  to pay full fare." As a result there  were very few spectators when Mr.  Donald Smith, now Lord Strathcona,  wielded the maul, and when the blow  had been struck without any preliminary speech-making or festivities tin;  little party went fishing.  Elk Killed Old Doe. .  One of the strange facts in natural  history was exemplified recently at  High Park, Toronto, whrrn a buck elk  attacked and killed with his horns n  feeble old doe. This is always the  custom with these animals, and some  other classes. When the old ones become feeble and unable to keep up  with the herd, they are killed off by  the strong members of the bund. The  doe was about eleven yeurs old and  had been weak and feeble during the  summer.  Married on the Roof.

American   Writer   Describes   Visit  Toronto on a Sunday...    *  ' t The following story ' of "Hugh Alien" is being published as syndicate  -matter in a number of United States  newspapers:  Did you ever spend Sunday" in Toronto ?  j'i you haven't, don't.  Take my tip on- it, and don't.  You can get to Buffalo  between 9  o'clock   nnd   noon,   and  it's' a  good  idea to do it.    Buffalo isn't the best  town in the world, but-  Well,   Goldsmith's ."Deserted   Village" is like 43nd and Broadway in  comparison to Toronto on Sunday.  I spent two days in Montreal and  one Sunday in Toronto. There's a  startling difference. Like���������well, say,  like between day and night.  Montreal is a wide open town. You  can laugh arid smoke .and talk French  and sing and drink Scotch whisky at  mahogany baTS and get into a limit  game most any hour of the day or  night, seven days a week, there.  ( But, Toronto-  Well, I came into the town early in  the morning ��������� Sunday morning.  There's a hotel alongside the depot,  but I figure I'I go farther uptown und  see a little of the city on the way.  T take a car and ride for blocks  through the business section of the  city. Everything is closed up. Tiglit-  or'n  tho proverbial drum.  Banks are _closed, of course, and  wholesale groceries ��������� you'd expect  that. But so are.restaurants and drug  stores and news stands and souvenir  postal card emporiums���������everything.  "Restaurants?" the conductor  echoes, "Well, if you get off at tlie  second block ahead, and walk four  blocks to the right, and round the  corner: to the north a kittle way.  there's a place that's usually open."  I express a small part of the astonishment.  "Why, you're lucky to be riding on  the ears; you couldn't used to."  I make my way back to the hotel  by the depot. After breakfast, I look  for a newspaper and some cigars. They  size me up like a secret service mail  does a visitor to the President. Then  they loqk cautiously around. The  coast seems clear. They whisper for  details and cautiously sneak cigars  and papers across to me.  "We're hot supposed to do this,"  the man says iu a stage whisper.  "Not supposed to sell stamps, even,  on Sunday. They round up about 15  'or 20 places every Sunday for selling  papers and things."  "What's the chances for buying a  drink?" I hazard, my curiosity aroused.  "No chiince," he said.  "But what if a snake bites me?"  "Well, you might engage a room at  Oie hotel and try to fix it up with the  bell boy."  "But at Montreal���������"  My   informant  is   English.      "Oh,  that's a French town," he observes,  "there's   all  kinds   of graft   in   that  town.  They've got some of their coun-  cilmen up now before the royal commission for paving graft.   Toronto is  clean."  Yes, Toronto is clean, all right.  Nice, pretty streets and parks. Good  government and all that. And Mont-  ���������real's streets look like a big green  cheese after the rats have been in it.  But if I lived in Toronto and had  to stay home Sundays, I'd be tempted some day to go up in my room,  draw all the blinds down, close the  ventilator, bribe everybody to secrecy,  and try to smoke a cigarette.  ���������*������������������*���������������  ! Remedies That Digest the Food  Will Not Cure the Trouble-  The Stomach Must he  Fitted to do Nature's  WorK  The tonic treatment for indigestion,  dyspepsia, catarrh of the stomach and  gastritis is having remarkable success  in- curing obstinate cases and deserves  attention from every sufferer.  Its principal is that remedies for in-  ���������tigestion that digest the food for the  stomach give relief for, only a short  time.   Ultimately they iinfiit the stomach to do its own proper work,  because they make its already weak powers still weaker by disuse, while the  remedy that strengthens   the   stomach  makes it capable of digesting the food  for itself, and this benefit is lasting. A  remedy that is not only   a   tonic   for  the stomach, but for   the   blood and  nerves as well,'.invigorates the entire  system and. makes recovery from the  painful, weakening effects of indigestion rapid and thorough.   Every sufferer from indigestion will find in Dr.  Williams'  Pink  Pills just the  tonic  needed/as they;enrich the blood, tone  the stomach and thus enable it to do  the work nature intended it should do.  This has been proved in thousands of  cases,  and  it is  worth  tho  while  of  every sufferer from stomach troubles  to give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a fair  trial.   Mr, Edward Chattorton, Camp-  hellion, N. B., says���������"I have been a  great  sufferer  from   indigestion    and  stomach trouble and although   1   had  ���������treatment from several doctors, I did  not find a cure until I began using Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills.     I can   hardly  describe how. much I'suffered at times.  Every meal brought with it more or  less agony, and I seemed to have a  complete distaste for food.   I had almost begun to think my. case incurable  when I came across a pamphlet advertising Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I  decided to give them a trial.    I am  very thankful that I did so, for I had  not been taking the Pills long before  1 found them helping me, and in six-  weeks every symptom of the trouble  had vanished.   I can now eat heartily  almost any kind of food, and no longer experience   pain   and   discomfort  after eating."  It is because Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills make new, rich blood that they  cure such troubles as indigestion,  rheumatism, neuralgia, headaches and  backaches, St. Vitus dance, and other  forms of nerve troubles. They cure  the irregularities of girlhood and womanhood, and bring ease, comfort,  and health to sufferers.

U., No. 767.  at Providence, R.I., is a picturesque  personality and has had a stirring  career. In 1897 he went to India to  minister to the troops there. For four  years he was chaplain of a camp of  2,500 boys, and is a natural expert  and enthusiast on boys' work. For  two years he was chaplain to the  forces at Aldershot and to the Guards  in London. During the Boer war he  was chaplain to Gen. French's cavalry  division, and has been through twenty-five battles.  His address at St. Luke's Church,  Toronto, was sane, sensible, with  flashes of wit, and at times epigrammatic.  He has no use for boy preachers,  "who come to us sometimes in England from America to our intense disgust. If you encourage a boy," he  said, "to preach to other boys or to  his elders, what you do is to imperil  his modesty, make him a mass of conceit and perhaps of hypocrisy. If you  play only upon a boy's emotions you  run the risk of shattering his soul.  If you put a fair and reasonable idea  before a boy I believe he will live up  to it."  The   "Bandage   Rush."  This novel type of student warfare  was introduced at McGill a few days  ago by the students of the first and  second years in the Faculty of Applied Science, and it was voted a great  improvement over the style of "rush"  that hud hitherto been in vogue at  the University. It was played us follows: Two goals were erected on the  field, as for football. One of these  was placarded the "Freshman's  Morgue," the other the "Sophomore  Morgue." The members of thc two  classes gathered around their respective goals and at a given signal made  a concerted rush for the centre of the  field, where they grappled and then  the fight was on. Each man was  equipped with a large supply of strong  bandages. Tho idea was to take a  member of the opposite side, tie him  up, and then drag him to the morgue  with as much haste as possible, and  the side which had the largest number in their morgue when time was  called was declared the winner. In  this case the Sophomores won an easy  victory.  Poisonous Fish.  Poisonous fish are rare here, but  common in the tropics. A Japanese  fish, fiigu, has deadly poisonous roe.  Hoe of pike and mi������iit of sturgess are  poisonous when spawning. The bile  tnd liver of many fish are poison.  But most flsh noison is due to decay.  They Soothe Excited Nerves.���������Nervous affections are usually attributable to defective digestion, as the  stomach dominates the nerve centres.  A course of Parmelee's Vegetable Pills  will still all disturbances of this character, and by restoring the stomach to  normal action relieve the nerves from  irritation. There is no sedative like  them and in the correction of irregularities of the digestive processes, no  preparation has done so effective work,  as can be testified to by thousands.  Ingenious Persons Manage to Give a  Lot of Trouble.  Some folks appear to have a pen-  i chant ^for giving the 'postal officials  unnecessary trouble, and among the  worst in this. category are those who  delight in so addressing their letters  that the .sorters���������who on all occasions  have to work at high pressure���������have  to waste valuable time In trying to  decipher the meaning of a 'none, too  clever verse, perhaps. It speaks  volumes for the sorters and postmen  that, with even the most attenuated  clue to the addressee, the missive is  almost sure of delivery.  From time to time the writer has  noted these "curious" addresses,...and  gives here some, of the most interesting examples from his  collection.  Recently a letter bearing the Croydon postmark arrived at the Princes  Risborough postoflice, near Aylesbury,  addressed'as- follows:  This letter please take to the land of  white ducks, ' -<.  The beechy and beautiful county of  Bud's;  And there, if your search on the map  'is most thorough,  You'll find a small  township called  Princes Risborough.  At the postollice there will you then  leave this letter,  My  friends there   are    (W)right,   so  they couldn't be  better.  .Similar are the following examples.  In February, 1880, "Uncle Toby," the  ���������conductor of the Children Corner of  The: Newcastle Weekly Chronicle, received a letter addressed:  To' Uncle Toby this missive is sent,  And I'm sure the penny is very well  spent.  The weekly newspaper, The Chronicle  named,  Is in Newcastle and through England  famed.  Mr. Editor this to my Uncle will give,  And  heartily   hope   that   both   may  long live.  In the same year a gentleman at  Ayr duly received an envelope bearing this superscription:  Awa' to aukl Scotland, and spcer for  John Graeme;  It's a wide direction, but a well-knot  name.  In the new town o' Ayr, at the auld  Brig-en,  Tie sells a drap whusky, but the postman will ken.

By a log of wood riddled with tiny  tunnels, says a London correspondent,  stands an ordinary-looking beetle in  the insect house at the London Zoo.  It has just been born as a beetle from  the grub which drove those tunnels.  It belong to the Longicorn family of  beetles.  . The grub was sent from Canada in  a-small log of Vancouver pine to a  lady eighteen months ago. When recently it turned into a beetle she  sent it to the Zoo, and it has just  emerged in its final state, but it may  have been anywhere between twenty  and fifty years in the wood, boring  the tunnels through the log.  An official at the Gardens says that  naturalists have not yet settled how  long it takes beetles" to accomplish  this work of boring. There is the historic cr.se of the Natural History Museum grub of the same species.

Finally the little jockey was naked to  express himself. He said: "Well,  friends, I don't know much about religion, for I ain't had it long; but 1  know something about hordes, and I've  tillers noticed that when they're kick-  in' they ain't pullln'."  ^  THE  In all cases'ot  DISTEMPER, PINKEYEJINFLUENZA,  COLDS, ETC  of all horses, broodmares, colts, stallions.
