[Copyright, 1307, by Homer Sprague.]  Mrs. Bowser had received a letter  from her mother stating that she was  nut very well and asking her to visit  her for a week or so. She read the  letter to Mr. Bowser uiiil added that  ol' course she could uot leave him all  11 lone for a week and would have to  answer that she could not come, when  lie replied:  "There is nothing whatever in the  way of your going and staying two or  three weeks if you want to. In fact, I  rather insist upon your going."  "���������lit It would be awful lonesome for  you here alone."  "I shan't he here alone."  "You could go to sonic boarding  house, I know, but you wouldn't like  it."  "I shall not go to any boarding  house."  "Then what will you do?"  Ho took from his pocketbook nn advertisement cut from a newspaper and  made quite a show of reading:  "Summer."boarders to tho number of  fifteen  can  be  accommodated   at tho  "I T0(������C IT THAT YOU UK LONGED TO THE  ruui'Esn."  Sundown farm, thirty miles from the  city. All our own vegetables, butter  and milk.--Porches, swings and hammocks. Soft beds. No mosquitoes.  Groves, meadows and brooks. Bring  your bike. References required. Terms,  $8 per week. Children taken. Short  and beautiful walk from the railroad  station."  "And you think of going out there?'.'  asked Mrs. Bowser.  Wanted a Week's Rest  "I not only think but I know I'm  going. 1 was going to propose it to  you, but you can go and see your  mother and I'll go up to Sundown  farm alone. I'd like to put in at  least a week in the country in some  quiet place."  "But you know how you are about  things."  "What do you mean by that?" he demanded.  "Why, you will probably be disappointed and"���������  "And I will raise a row? That  shows liow little you know me. I  may not find things all I anticipate,  but I shall say nothing. I am no hand  to raise rows. Xo oue ever heard rae  complain of anything. If I don't like  this place I can find another. One  would think I was a roaring lion to  hear you talk. You just get ready and  go your way aud I'll go mine, and I'm  sure I'll have the best time."  It was settled that way, though Mrs.  Bowser had a hundred misgivings to  one hope. Mr. Bowser figured out  what he wanted to take, secured references from six different men, and  before he finally got away he made  more fuss than if the entire household goods were being removed to another house. There were times when  he almost changed his mind and decided to go hunting elephants in Africa or mountain climbing in Montana,  but he had only to read that advertisement over again to bring him back to  Sundown farm and its meadows and  brooks. When his corns ached he  even thought of paddling his feet in  those brooks.  Mrs. Bowser reached her mother's  house without adventure. Mr. Bowser  reached Sundown station to find that  It consisted of a small building for the  use of the agent, a shed for a freight  house mid n water tank. The agent  was a young man with a lonesome  look and a scarcity of talk. When  asked If he knew the farm he pointed  to it road leading across a swamp.  When asked If Mr. Bowser's trunk  could remain there until sent for he  said nothing. When asked if he knew  the farm and If the groves and eggs  and butter were all right, he smiled  sadly and crossed the tracks'to unload  a barrel of salt.  Mr. Bowser set out.   He had Bome-  how got it in his mind that a short  walk meant a quarter of a mile at  most.   He had never looked tho term  up In Webster or ho would have found  it to mean, "A short walk in the country means anything from two to twenty miles."    In this case It meant almost two miles.   The road was mostly  ���������through   the  woods,  and  there   were  i mosquitoes   by   the   millions.    Thero  were frog ponds and swamps,   ue met  one  stray  dog and   one  tramp   who  wasn't stray, but knew where he wanted to go.   The dog took one Ionic at Mr,  Bowser's face and went past him on  the run, expecting to bo hit with, a  club.    The   tramp  stopped blra   and  said:  )   "Say, old cock, have you got a chew  , of tobacco about you?"  I '"NoI" shouted Mr. Bowser.  I Took Him For a Tramp.  '   "Well, you needn't knock any trees  over with that voice oj^.vours.   I took  it that you  belonged to  the purfesli  itiud. \vouldv share \Utli a wuittlilo. but  I Tan  mistaken.'' "IT   i" 1?as "you 'I'd  chaw that face off myself!"  Mr. Bowser ��������� kept uis uigzOi' and  passed on, though the lemprutlon was  great. Sundown farm finally came  into view. That's one good thing about  the country. If you walk long enough  and far enough anything from a bull  calf to a thousand acre farm will heave  into view. There was a brook running across the road, but it ran silently. It wasn't paid to babble. There  was a spotted cow standing In the  shade of three trees���������tho groves mentioned in the ad. She was covered  with tiles, but she wasn't switching  her tall. She had switched it for tweu-  ty years and had come to recognize the  futility. There was a green meadow,  but it belonged to the next farm.  There was a porch to the unpainted  old house, aud on it sat two women,  seven children and a cross eyed youth  of sixteen. The cross eyed youth had  brought his bike, as per ad. It leaned  against the fence���������what was left of it  The owner of Sundown farm was at  the gate to meet the new arrival. He  was also cross eyed. That was why  thero was a bond of sympathy between him and the youth and why he  had been holding him on his knee and  telling him that nothing succeeds like  success. He held out his hand and  sin lied a welcome.  "What sort of a place do you call  this?" demanded Mr. Bowser as he  refused the hand.  "It Is Sundown farm, sir. Did you  come on my advertisement?"  "Yes, I was just fool enough. By  thunder, but you ought to be prosecuted for Inserting such an ad. as that.'"  "But what is wrong, sir���������what Is  wrong?" asked the other as he drew  himself up. "This place has been a  favorite resort for the last rive years,  and you see the guests have already  begun to arrive. There will be fifteen  more this week. I can't understand  your attitude, sir."  "Maybe it strikes him with terror,"  suggested the 'cross eyed youth, who  had come down to the gate. "I know  it did me when I first saw it. After  being here one day the feeling of terror wore off."  Abuses the Farmer.  "It strikes me as being a blamed  fraud!" exclaimed Mr. Bowser as he  bristled up. "Look at your old house!  Look at that drove of young tins! Look  at that swamp down there! Look at  this thundering big skeeter jabbing his  pitchfork into mc right here at noonday!"  "Sir,  I trust that you brought references with you," replied the farmer.  "All guests must have references the  first season," added the youth.  "References!" shouted Mr. Bowser  as he almost jumped up and down.  "You wait till I get back to town and  I'll give you references by the bu������hel!  I'll let the public know through the  press what sort of a tramps' lodging  house you have out here!"  "But the soft beds, sir," protested the  farmer.  "Aud the vegetables, butter and  eggs," added the youth.  Then the women aud children left  the porch and came down to the gate,  and oue of the women said to the owner of the favorite and justly popular  resort:  "I hope you will be careful who you  take in. I understand that many burglars are going around the country in  disguise."  Mr. Bowser turned away for the  "short and beautiful" walk back to the  station. The owner of Sundown started to accompany him and explain Unit  the drinking water was right from a  mountain spring and was warranted  free from tadpoles, frogs, young alligators; coons and all foreign substances, but he hud tried the summer  boarder to the limit. Mr. Bowser grabbed him and threw him over his own  fence into his own shady grove and  then passed on without a look back.  When he reached the station the lonesome looking agent looked at him, but  said no word.  "Why in blazes didn't you tell me?"  shouted Mr. Bowser.  Tiie lonely looking agent took five  minutes to think the question over and  then answered:  "Because I wanted you to be lonesome too!" M. QUAD.  IT  HAS  ITS  DRAWBACKS.  Circumstantial   Evidence.

The digestive system is a wonderful  piece of machinery, but--power is  necessary to make it' effective.  In this ease,the power is the nerve  force contained in the body, and if the  nerve force is lacking tlie digestive  system becomes crippled, andlhere is  suffering from indigestion, nervous  headaches, neuralgic pains, dizzy,  spells, weakness and discouragement.  ��������� Strength cannot be regained from  the food you eat so long as digestion  is so imperfect, but you can be restored by Dr. Chase's Nerve Food,  which contains in condensed pill form  the very elements of nature -which go  to form new nerve force.

New  Meat  Inspection Act  Tho custom prevailing among fanners throughout Canada of slaughtering  animals,   particularly    swine,     upon 1  their own  premises  and selling carcases    on    thc local market,  is one  which entails more or less loss to the  producer.   Before the advent of packing establishments, the domestic trade  was  supplied  by  the local   butchers,  who   were   necessarily   compelled   to  provide for future, supplies, and, as a  result, tlie local markets were created.  Conditions have changed, however, the  local dealers no longer supplying the  .domestic trade, which has passed into the hands of the packing houses,  which are now the distributing centers for meats.   Packers can affoud to,  and-actually do pay higher prices and  sell  at lower  values  than  the local  butchers   for  reasons   which   are   obvious when one considers that profits  are   represented  by   the  by-products.  The packers are    adverse to  buying  dressed - carcases   as   they   represent  smaller profits in by-products. Again,  dressed      carcases'    are    imperfectly  handled by the farmers, the meat in  many cases    being bruised and unsightly;   tuis,   as   well   as   improper  chilling,    being    deterrent    to    good |  prices.    Animals,-/especially hogs, re-j  quire    scientific    chilling,    otherwise '���������  those patts which enter into the pro-i  cess of curing become sour and unfit;  for market.    Packers prefer   to - buy j  their meats Qn the .ioof. and for the.  reasons set forth above, are able to  pay higher prices for the same. j  In view, however, of the large trade  carried on in some parts of Canada,  more particularly during the fall and  winter, in dressed pork, as well as in  other dressed meats, attention may be  directed to one of the requirements  of the regulations made under thc  new Meat Inspection Act, which is  likely to have a considerable effect  on the business above referred to.  The Department of Agriculture at Ottawa having assumed the responsibility of inspecting and practically  guaranteeing the healthfulness of all  meats and meat products sent out bv  the packing houses must, of necesj|*  sity, protect itself by making sure '  that no diseased carcases are permitted to enter these establishments. The  most effective(rway of preventing the  entry of such diseased meat is, of-  course, the careful antemortem inspection provided for by the regulations, but, in view of thc large trade  carried on in dressed carcases, and of  the fact that both farmers and packers have been in the habit of handling meats in this way, the officials  in charge of the enforcement of the  act have decided to admit to the  establishment under inspection, dressed carcases under such conditions as  will enable them..to judge with reas-;  onable certainty, as to whether the an-'  imal, prior to slaughter, was free  from disease. Provision has therefore been made for the admission on  inspection of dressed carcases, with  the head, heart, lungs and liver held  by their natural attachments, such (  carcases to be inspected before enter- *  ing the establishment, and if found  fit for food to be so marked and admitted for packing purposes, while if  found to be diseased, to be condemned and tanked. !  This being the case, it is incumbent  upon every farmer bringing dressed  hogs or other animals to market to  remember that unless the carcases are  dressed in accordance with the regulation mentioned above, namely, with  these organs left in their proper positions, it will not be possible for the  representatives of the packing houses  to buy such carcases for use in any of  the establishments coining under the  operation of the Meat and Canned  Goods Act. I  The presence of the buyers or  agents of these establishments on our  local markets has always been, at least  to some extent a safeguard against  possible attempts by local combina ������������������  tions of butchers and others to depress  the price of dressed meats, and it  will bo well for producers to boar in  mind the new conditions, and when,  for any reasons, unable to market  their stock on hoof, hogs, as well as  other animals, in such n way as to.  meet the requirements of the new-  Act. 1  Words of Daniel Webster  Tf we work .upon marble, it will perish; if we work upon brass, time will  efface it; if we rear temples, they will  crumblo into .dust; but. if we work  upon our immoral minds, if we imbue  them 'with principles���������with the just  fear of God and our fellowman���������we  engrave on those tablets something  which will briehten to all eternity ���������  Daniel  Webster. .

Condemnation of i some of the existing conditions in Ontario canning factories forms an important feature of  a report of Dr. C. A. Hodgetts, of the  Provincial Board off Health. It appears that at some' of the canneries  the employes are housed in the premises, and it is against these housing arrangements that the attacks of  the health authorities are mainly directed. It is claimed that the bedding was far from clean, and in fact  many stables were in a more cleanly  'condition. The accommodation, says  Dr. Hodgetts, was not up to that of a  cheap lodging house. It was said by-  some employers that the employes  were housed better than in their own  homes. But this, Dr. Hodgetts declares, is no excuse for the conditions  as found. It was particularly noticeable, he says, that the class of employes improved in ratio to the improved conditions of environment.  The factory in which the best class of  accommodation was found had by far  the better and cleaner lot of employes.  "The time is j;ipe for a change in  the health laws of the province," says  ���������Dr.1 Hodgetts in his report. "The present local boards of health arc often  failures, and properly-qualified men  who "will devote their whole,time to  sanitary administration should be appointed, while the province,should be  subdivided into county and other districts similar to those of the school  system. In addition the central system should he reorganized. The chief  .health officer should have a competent  staff, consisting of the present officials and a sanitary engineer."

"Several factory managers," states  Dr. Bell, "declared that it was impossible to keep these people clean, and  that they would not use the facilities  if they were provided. If such-is  the case insist on these employers going out of business, who, for the greed  of a few extra dollars, hire such dirty  help and prepare our food under such'  insanitary conditions."

A recent issue of The Western Dairy  News of -Bristol, England, contains an  account of the trip of the British journalists to Canada. The closing of the  article is. in the"way of a summary  of this province's wealth and importance.  On leaving Ontario, says the writer,  it may not be out of place to give a  few facts about the province. Ontario is as large as four Ehglands,  and but'little less than France and  Germany. It contains-40 per cent, of  Canada's population, and 20 per cent,  oi the population of Ontario is engaged in agriculture. It has 126 million acres, and 40 millions -hav.e -been -  surveyed. Ontario's'farming industry  output has doubled in the last two  decades- without much increase in  acreage. Ontario has a greater variety of mineral deposits in proportion  to population than any country in  the world. It has 1,129,047 dairy cows,  worth over six millions. Though the  fruit industry is only in its infancy,  there are over ten million appie trees  in the province. The. production of  apples increased from 1901 to 190G by  other colony of the Empire, and since  the war between Russia and Japan  the centre of gravity of foreign' affairs had shifted,' and was not on this  continent. Foreign questions were  not settled by the Dominion, but what  this country did in its relations with  foreign nations affected the Foreign  Office and the Empire."  He saw with regret in the papers  that' u riot, an uncalled-for and unjustifiable riot, had broken out in  Vancouver, and as a member of the  British Empire, Canadians should  realize that a man who hits an innocent' Jap in the streets of Vancouver  may start a war between two empirea  which may bring Japanese battleships  to these shores.-  He believed in the supremacy of the  white race on this continent, but the  question should be settled by peaceful methods.  These questions could be settled and  would be settled, but they had becn  aggravated by the bludgeon methods  of some reckless spirits on the west  coast. He condemned these bludgeon  methods. Tliey could begin a quarrel  between thc Canadian labor men and  the Japanese, but that quarrel would  be taken to the Foreign Office, and it  might end in a disastrous upheaval  of many nations, and in the interval  the peace and prosperity of this great  Dominion would be set' back at least  a generation.

At a meeting of the Cabinet an order in council was passed for the issue of a proclamation bringing into  force the acts I yarding the judiciary  of the Northwest Territories���������now the  Provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. At present there is one Supreme  CourtT^which has jurisdiction over  both provinces. Under the new act  the court is divided into two, making a supreme court for Alberta and  another for Saskatchewan. The new  law goes into effect on Monday, Sept.  16.' .Four of the judges have been  assigned to the Supreme Court of  Alberta and four to the Supreme Court  of Saskatchewan.  In Alberta the court will comprise  Chief Justice Sifton, with puisne  Judges Scott, Henry and Stuart, and  ^one not yet appointed. The Saskatchewan Supreme Court will comprise  Chief Justice Wctmore, with puisne  Judges Prendergast, Newland and  Johnston, and one not yet appointed.  The appointment of County Court  judges for the new province has not  yet been considered.  Canada and Australia.  "The greatest factor to be reckoned  with in dealing with Canada is its  proximity to the United States, which  exercises an influence so great that  it can never be obliterated," says the  British Australian. "Indeed, Europeans visiting North America for the  first time see little difference in outward appearance between Canadians  and Americans. A most interesting  comparison could be, drawn between  Australia and Canada as offshoots of  the British people, each with British  supremacy. The one an island continent separated by great distances  from outside pressure, and working  out its own future on its own lines;  the other dividing a" great territory  wrih a people far more powerful ana  richer than themselves, and exercising upon its neighbor great political  pressure and immense social influence.*" In this respect Canada may be  said.to have a great advantage over  Australia."

But as you consider this question,  round the corner come a couple of  bull-necked priests in cassocks and  birettas, and you remember the Scala  Santa Chapel of Sainta Anne de Beau-  pre, and you realize that it is not a  language but a spiritual opposition  which keeps the two people eternally  separate and almost perpetually suspicious.

Why dill the Etruscans devote their  wliole lives to the incessant making of  pottery  until   it accumulated   in such  quantities   that   they  were   compelled  to bury it in order to keep room for  themselves in their streets and houses'!  Then, again, there Is the mystery of  the  Etruscan  inscriptions.    These iu-  Bcriptions   are   fairly   uumerous,   hut  hitherto they have proved to be utterly   undecipherable.    Tho   Etruscan   is  the only dead language that has defied  investigation.     Considered   as   a   lan?  guage,  nothing could seem  more  im- '  probable than the hieroglyphics of the \  Egyptians, but Egyptologists can read j  them with such ease that almost any |  given  series  of  hieroglyphics  can  be  read in three or four ways by an equal  number of  rival   Egyptologists.    Any  language   more   utterly   impossible at  first glance than  the Assyrian arrow-  headed   language   could   not. well   be  imagined, but there are many learned  men who can read, write and'speak arrowhead with facility.   And yet no man  can make the least sense of the writings  left by the   Etruscans,  although  they are written in Homan characters.  All that we know of the Etruscans  Bcems unreasonable aud preposterous.  Naturally this makes them fascinating  to every one who delights iu mystery  and the solution of puzzli>s.

' .We Eat Too Much.
Medical science declares that
practically scvon-eighths of our ills
are due to over-feeding. Colds in
the head ar often due to eating too'
much. '   ���
It may be claimed that our own
well-spread boards are meagre
compared to those of our ancestors.
Probably, but our ancestors were
hardy and able to throw off the
effects of a hearty meal. Wo do
nob lako into consideration the
great "difference between their-life
and ours. As it is, we eat altogether' too much food for our
health and oniforb, and the fashionable remedy for ailments is
semi-starvation" for a period of
varying health.
