Liniments and Rubbing Will Not  Cure It���������Tlie Disease Must be  Treated Through the Blood.  The trouble with men and women  who have rheumatism is thnt they  waste valuable time in trying to rub  the complaint away. If they 'rub  hard enough the friction causes  warmth in the affected part, which  temporarily relieves the pain, but in  a short time the aches and pains are  as bad ns ever. All the rubbing, and  all the liniments nnd outward applications in the world won't euro rheumatism, because it is rooted in the  blood. Rubbing won't remove the poisonous ncitl in the blood that 'causes  the pain. Rut Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills will, because they are a blood  medicines acting on the blood. Thnt  is why the aches and pains and stiff  swollen joints of rheumatism disappear when these pilb arc used. That's"  why sensible people waste no time in  rubbing but take Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills when the first twinges of rheumatism come on, nnd these speedily  drive the trouble out of their system.  Mr. John Evans, 12 Kempt Road, Halifax, N. S., says:���������"About throe years  ago I hnd nn attack of rheumatism  wliich settled in my right leg and  ankle, which became very much swollen and was exceedingly painful. I  wasted n good deal of- time trying to  got rid of the trouble by rubbing with  liniments, but it did not do mc a  bit of good. My daughter was using  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills at the time  and finally persuaded ine to try  thorn. Inside- of a week the pills began to help me, and after taking  them a few weeks longer the trouble  had completely disappeared and has  not bothered me since. My daughter  was also taking the pills at the time  for weakness ancl anaemia, was also cured by them, and I am now a  firm friend of this medicine."  Most of the troubles that afflict  mankind are clue to poor, watery  blood. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills actually make new red blood. That is  why they euro anaemia with its  headaches and backaches, and dizziness and fainting spells; the pangs of  rheumatism, and the sharp stabbing  pains of neuralgia; also indigestion,  St. Vitus dance, paralysis and the  ailments of young girls ancl women  of mature age.

An  interesting   report-   on   strikes  and lockouts in thc United Kingdom  in- 1907, compiled by Mr.  A. Wilson"  Fox, is published by the Labor Department of the Board of Trade.  The number of workpeople involved  directly or indirectly jn stoppages ol  work owing to strikes and lockouts  which begun in 1907 was, the report  says, comparatively small (147,498),  and the aggregate duration of all the  disputes in progress during the year  (2,102,000 working days), was below'  that of any year for which'the de-'  partment has_records except 1904. - >  ��������� The strikes' ancl lockouts . of. 1907  caused-a loss .of working time amount-'  ing to less than a quarter 'of a day  per head of thc whole industrial population of the United Kingdom, exclusive of seamen and agricultural  laborers, who are not included in the  records of disputes ��������� kept by the department. Nearly three-quarters of  tho time lost in 1907 was clue to disputes in the textile, coal mining, and  engineering Snd shipbuilding industries.     -   ���������  As usual, questions of wages were'  the most frequent causes of disputes. '  As compared with the previous year,  however, there was a decline in the  proportion of workpeople who struck  work to obtain nh increase in wages.  The results of the disputes were in  favor of the workpeople so far, as  concerned 32.G per cent, of the number directly involved, -in favor of the  employers so far as concerned'27 per  cent., while in thc case of 40.1 per  cent, the result was a compromise.  Three-fifths of the disputes directly  involving 74,000 workpeople, or nearly  three-quarters of nil those directly  involved in the disputes' of the year,  were settled by the parties themselves  or their representatives, and 45 disputes, directly involving 13,296 workpeople, wore settled by conciliation or  arbitration."  - The various voluntary boards of  conciliation and arbitration are known  to havp. considered 1,545 cases in the  course of the year, and to have settled G63 of them. These boards are  mainly concerned-with the prevention  of disputes rather than with their settlement, and in only seven, of the  cases which came before them did disputes reach the. point at which a stoppage of work resulted.-,  You Can Test  the;JCidneys ���������  READ  HOW TO TEST.THEM  AND  IF DISEASED, HOW TO CURE-  .

ncident In Life of Railway Magnate
Paralleled   In  Barrie Play,
Did Mr. J. M. Barrie have in his
eye Sir William Van - Home, the
Canadian railway king, when he
made John Shand the railway porter
hero in What Every Woman Knows
break into the Wylies' Ijpuse to* study
tho books in their library?
The question is prompted by the
printing in the Canadian-Magazine of
an incident in the life of Sir William
which is an almost exact parallel of
John' Shand's housebreaking feat.
If Mr. Barrie had no knowledge of
Sir William's youthful escapade,. the
coincidence is wonderful, for both
men broke'into libraries to improve
their minds, both succeeded in after
life, and- both were connected with
railways. ��� ,
In order to place the coincidence
clearly before the reader, the deadly
parallel may be usefully employed.
To the left is an account' of John
i Shand's adventure as described .by a
dramatic critic, and to the.right is

This is the incident of John Shand .-

which under the existing code is a

Two schools of foiestry are nc'-in
operation in Canada. Of these, "that
at the University of Toronto is the
older. This-was inaugurated in the
autumn of 1907. It is a distinct
Faculty of the University and has a
staff of one professor, two lecturers
and an assistant. *���
The head of tho school and dean of
the faculty of forestry is Dr. B. E.
Fernow. He is a German by training,
a graduate of the celebrated forest
school at Muenden, and has also
studied at the-University of Koonig-
sborg. He has, however, been a
resident of this continent for over
thirty years, was for twelve years
(from 188G to 1898) chief of the Division of Forestry of the United States
Department of Agriculture, after which
he was head of the New York State
College of Forestry, connected with
Cornell University, from 1893 to 1903.
After several years passed as consulting forest engineer, he organized
the Department' of Forestry at the
Pennsylvania,State College, and thence
came directly to the University of
Toronto to organize the faculty of
forestry in that university.
The course at the University of
Toronto is an undergraduate one,
requiring four years of study. It
leads to the -degree of Bachelor of
Science in Forestry, (B.S.F.), with the
post-graduate degree of Forest Engineer, (F.E.), after at least three years
practicel work.
The University of New Brunswick,
at Fredericton, N.B., also offers a
four year undergraduate course in
forestry,' leading to the degree of
Bachelor of Science in Forestry
(B.S.F.). The course was.inaugurated
at ,lhe beginning of the present session (1908-09). The professor in
charge is M"r. K. B. Miller, M.A.,
M.F., a graduate of the Yale Forest
School, one of the leading forestry
schools on the continent.
In the province of Quebec steps are
also being taken to established a
school of forestry. Courses of study
in forestry or preparatory to forestry
are also offered by various other universities and agricultural colleges.

Wentworth-Woodhouse, Yorkshire,
. England, where the Earl and Coun-
��� less Fitzwilliam' recently entertained
I a big party, has the reputation of being the biggest private house in England. But its real interest lies in
the fact that the kernel, so to speak, of
ilie present stately mansion���the cen-
,'tre round which it was built ��� was
once the beloved home of the ill-fated
Earl of Stratford from whose grandson, the last Marquis of Rockingham,
it passed to William, Earl Fitzwilliam, over a hundred years ago. Rumor has it that, the late Lord Stratford still visits his old home, his
ghost walking downstairs every Friday night ��� bearing his head in its
arms. Some idea' of the size of Wentworth-Woodhouse may be gained by
an old story told of a visit paid there
by Baron von Lie beg. When retiring
to rest for the night he was solemnly
handed a packet-of wafers by a servant in order that he should, by dropping them in a continuous line from
the smoking-room to his bedroom, be
able to find his way back against next
morning. Lord ��� Fitzwilliam had the
opportunity afforded him some years'
ago of reading his own obituary notice. When he was Lord Milton several papers announced that he had
been killed in a hunting accident.
To mark the rare event a waggish
friend sent Lord 'Milton a copy of
Milton's "Paradise Lost!" The same
friend-later on made amends by send,
ing a copy of "Paradise Regained."
This was when he married Lady Maud
Dundas, which was really a pretty
compliment to the bride. Before be-
ingrcalled to his seat in the House of
Lords, Earl Fitzwilliam had several
years' experience \oi the Commons.
His family had long been associated
with the affairs' of the nation. The
fifth earl was the first nobleman to
give his adhesion to the Anti-Corn
Law League, and, it is said, an earlier member of the House spent ��100,-
000 to win a Yorkshire seat.

Veteran  Claimants   For   Pensions tln
Donegal Break Aga Records.
During the investigations in Donegal in connection with the old-age
pensions some .remarkable cases of
longevity have come to light, including three centenarians. The age of a
man, apparently hale and heirly,
named Bryan O'Donncll, residing in
the townland of Tower, parish of In-
ver, a tenant on the Sinclair estate,
was given at'over 108 years. He was
able, it 'is stated, to attend his religious duties at Frosses Chnpcl last
Easter. He has never uttered a word
of English during- bis long life, nor
can he understand it, but he speaks
Erse fluently. The old man still wean-
buckled shoas, long, coarse, knitted
stockings, with corduroy knoe-
breeches, and the old swallow-tailed
bine cloth coat, and a waistcoat with
brass buttons.
Mr. Henry McCafflcy, clerk to the
Old-Age Pension Committee, came
across a man named Charles Kelly
residing in Burbane, Inver parish,
who claims to be 111 year sold, and
John McGinty, of Townawilly, Donegal parish, who had reached the great
age of 106 years. They all appear
strong, both mentally ancl physically,
considering their advanced age.
Amongst the applicants at Carrick-
on-Shannon for an "old-age pension
form was a man named Pet Reynolds,
of the Cootehnll district, who' has attained the patr.'achal age of 109. He
is hale and hearty, and in full possession of all his faculties.

from my head which would make me
faint. When I came out of the fainting-spells I took fits. , I was bloated
till I was clumsy. The pain I suffered
was awful. It would go to my feet

An Invention That Was Long After
Printing Pross.
It was within half a century from
tho invention of printing that book
plates were introducd as identifying
marks to indicate the ownership ol
the volume. ,���,���'','������' .
Germany, the fatherland of printing from movable type and of wood
cutting for making impressions in
ink on paper, is likewise the home
land of the book pinto.
The earliest dated wood cut of accepted authenticity is the well known
"St.- Christopher of 1423," which was
discovered in tho Carthusian monastery of Buxhoim in Suabia.
It was to insure the right, of ownership in a book that the owner haclit
marked with the coat-of-nrms of the
family or some other horaldic device.
Libraries tvoro kept intact and passed
from generation to generation, bearing the emblem of the family.
The first book plate in France is
dated 1574-'hi Sweden, 1575; Switzerland, 1607, and Italy, 1023. Tho earliest English book plate .is found in a
folio volume onco tho property , of
Cardinal Wolsoy and afterward-belonging to his royal master.
The earliest montion of the book
plate fn English literature is by
Pepys, July 10, 1038. The first known
book plate In America belonged to
Gov. Dudley. Paul Revere, tho patriot, was ono of the first American
ongravorB of the book plates and a

Dignity Badly Ruffled.
When -the recently discovered baronet, Cave-Browne-Cave, first came to
Canada, a good many stories were
told about thc persistent manner in
which he insisted upon being addressed by his full name, That was before

He sat one night at dinner in a boarding-bouse in Montreal next to an Englishman -named Leonard Holme, an
When the joints came on the table
the landlady, who did the carving,
said: "Beef or mutton, Mr. Cave?"
The future baronet in his most freezing manner replied, ""I beg your pardon, madam; my name is Cave-
Brown-Cave, if you please."
Willing to oblige her guests, the,
landlady asked if Mr. Cave-Browne-
Cave would take beefier mutton. He
accepted the beef.
Then she turned to the next guest
and said "Beef or mutton, Mr.
Without a smile the Cambridge man
gravely replied: "I beg your pardon,

Englishmen at the table and cost

London   May  Thus   Honor Accession
of  Its Printer Lord Mayor.
Something altogether delightful and
new is in contemplation for the show
which will inaugurate the - reign of
Sir George Truscott as Lord Mayor of
London: - Louis N. Parker will be
master of the'pageant, 'and he has
submitted to the sub-committee which
has charge of the arrangements, in
the preliminary stage his scheme for
the coming "show."
Inspired by the circumstance that
the Lord Mayor is a printer and a
member "of Ihe Stationers' Company,
Mr. Parker has chosen the figures for
his-pageant from the golden age of
English literature. He proposes to
begin' his period with, Chaucer (1328
or 1340 to 1400), and to end in the
middle of the , seventeenth century
with Milton. This gives him a range
of great men of letters, and if his
scheme in all its fulness is approved
at the meeting of the grand committee, London will witness something
very picturesque and daring in the
way of spectacles.
Particularly anpropriate will be'
the inclusion of William Caxton, who
set up the first printing press in England in the Almonry thaUstood to the
west of the Sanctuary of Westminster Abbey. Caxton, by deputy, working at h4s ancient printing press of
1470 and a modern master printer,
m the person of Sir Goorge Truscott, appearing in the same procession will provide a singularly pi-
quant contrast. Shakespeare and
Bacon ��� although the heretics may
question the appearance of the two
figures���will have a place, and Spencer and Raleigh and Ben Jonson ar-d
Sir Philip Sidnev will be there.
Al though the'full details will not
be settled until Thursday, this brief
outline will give some 'idea of the
scope of Mr. Parker's plans. It is
understood that\200 figures, mounted and on foot, will walk in the procession but this number will, of
course, include .many minor figures
and attendants. '
When babies are restless and sleepless it is the surest possible sign of
illness. Well babies sleep soundly
and wake up brightly. Sleeplessness
is generally due to some derangement
of the stomach or bowels or to teething troubles. A few doses of Baby's
Own Tablets will put the little one
right; and make it sleep naturally and
soundly. Mothers need not be afraid

London Opinion.
Sir Charles Wyndham's Art Has Piled Up a Handsome Fortune.
So Sir Charles.Wyndham, who has
just produced "Bellamy the Magnificent" at the New Theatre, London,
is reputed to be. And every penny of
his capital he has made by his own
exertions without the assistance of
"backers." Moreover, when he first
started in management, his capital
amounted to $150. .Early to rise has
always been Sir Charles' motto, and,
whatever time he may have gone lo
bed,he.is up every morning at eight
o'clock and ready to transact business
an hour later. Like Sir John Hare,
Sir Charles has a very good opinion
of Americans and American audiences, and tells some good stories of
his experiences while touring on the
other_ side of the Atlantic. On one
occasion a manager went to him ancl
pressed for a'performance, at which
the prominent citizens of the town
would be present.
"I' consented," says Sir Charles.
"There was no time to post bills, so
they sent out runner3. I went down
to see the hall. "Not a seat in the
place." 'Don't you worry about that,
you'll find all the chairs there tonight,' said the manager. And so I
did, sure enough. When I arrived
in the evening the hall was" half full
of chairs, of all shapes and sizes���
camp stools, piano stools, three-legged
stools, drawing-room, dining-room,
and kitchen chairs���in fact anything
on which one might sit down. I
couldn't understand it until I was informed that it was the rule of the
theatre that everybody who purchased a seat should provide his own. The
place at night was packed���the ap.-
proaches to the theatre being crowded
with contingents of families enter-
���ing-the_place, followed by negro servants can-ying'half-a-dozen chairs on
their shoulders."
Was Not Seeking a Berth.
An amusing story is told concerning
Lord Rosse, who has just died. His
lordship possessed considerable engineering skill and knowledge, and before he succeeded to the peerage he
once visited some engineering works,
dressed very much as an engineer
would be. The foreman of tho works
got the impression that his visitor
was an engineer out of a berth. Meeting him a little later in Westminster,
with his father, conversation about
the visit to the works was resumed,
and the foreman observed thnt he
knew a berth that might suit him.
"What do you say?" said the future
earl, turning to his father, who replied that if his son could be spared
from his other duties he saw no objection. "What other duties?" asked
the surprised foreman. Explanations
followed, and the foreman learned
that his friend wns not a practical
engineer out of work, but the next
heir to a peerage.
Fascination of Crime.
A "Crimo Club" is the latest of
London fads. It is not by any means
a brotherhood of criminals, but a private gathering of highly-respectable
ind not undistinguished gentlemen
who are interested in the fascinating
subject of the psychology of crime.
The members, who number about a
score, meet periodically, dine well,
and then debate in a scientific spirit
somo great crimo. Unsolved mysteries, such as the ��� "Jack the Ripper"
wrlcs, are favorite subjects for tho
dissection of these oxperts.
Somo of tho members are distinguished lawyors from criminal courts,
other' are well-known doctors who
ipeciallze in medico-legal matters,
n-hilo others aro shining lights of lit*
jraturo and tho drama. For instance
Sir Arthur Connn Doylo, Mr. H. B.
Irving, Mr. G. R. Sims, Mr. Max
Pomborton, and tho late Prof. Chur-
fon Collins figure among the roceai
(Lata oi members.
it:���-"Shiloh's Cure-will always
cure   my  coughs   and   colds."
A rather pompous-looking deacon in
a certain city church was asked _ to
take charge of a class of boys during
the absence of the regular teacher.
While endeavoring to impress upon
their young minds the importance of
living a Cluistian life the following
question was propounded:
"Why do people call me a Christian, children?" the worthy dignitary
asked, standing very erect and smiling clown upon them.
"Be-ianse they don't know you,"
was the ready answer of a bright-eyed
little toy, responding to the ingratiating smile with one equally guileless and winning.���Lippincott's.
Minard's  Liniment  Cures  Distemper,
A Distinguishing Feature.
A woman entered a police station in
Bolland and asked the officer In charge
to have the canals dragged.
"My husband nas been threatening
tor some time to drown himself," she
explained, "and he'? been missing now
for two days."
"Anything peculiar about him by
which he can be recognized':" nsked
the officer, preparing to fill out a description blank.

Lord Lyveden's  Romantic Career.
The many avocations and adventures of Lord Lyveden, who distinguished himself by being the last to
leave the ill-fated Argonaut, have
caused him .to be called "the rolling-
stone of the peerage." Before succeeding his uncle in 1900 as third baron, his lordship had been a private
soldier in the Royal Artillery, utility
actor at the Haymarket, and waiter
in a Bowery eating-house. He had
been steward on an American coasting-vessel, had toured the States with
a fit-up company, and had run a
company of his own in England. Later, he owned nurseries of his own
planning at Stanwick, Higham Ferrers, and introduced a new tomato
knowns by his initials���"P.V."���to
gastronomic world. But there was no
gold in tomatoes, and shaking Stanwick dust off his feet, Mr. Vernon
went to sea again, served as steward
on several lines of steamships, incidentally contracting yellow fever at
Buenos Ayres, and wound up the romance of his untitled days by three
months' catering for the General
Steam Navigation Co.
Call It "Settler's Clock."
To the outside world the greatest
ornithological oddity in this country
is tho kookaburra, says Tho Sydney
(Australia) Times. In earlier times
it was known as the "settler's clock,"
from the belief that its joyful paens,
were vented regularly at-morn, noon
and dusk, being quiescent through
the heat of the forenoon. That ber
lief has long been; shattered. The
kookaburra laughs just when the fit
takes it, particularly when excited;
and it laughs as readily at the violent
death of its mother-in-law as it does
at the enraged settler, when he falls
off his hay-stack. A wounded- bird
makes a demoniacal row, which will
bring all others within hearing into,
the neighboring tree, and these at
once set up an echoing cackle that
is repeated again and again.
