Dr. Josiah Oldfield, D.C.L., M.A.,  M.R.C.S., L.R.C.P., and senior physician  to the Lady "Margaret Hospital of Bromley, Eng., writes the Order of the Golden  Age, a valuable paper ou thc cause and  cure of appendicitis. Primarly he places  the blame on the fact that man is eating  to much meat and too little fruit.  "Appendicitis is caused by foul and  dirty intestines," he says. "Wash them  clean aud the risk of disease is practically gone.  ''I have shown how by eating a mixed  diet of flesh foods and foods from the  vegetable kingdom, the great channel of  nutrition of the body becomes' a cesspool  of stagnating dangers. So long as this  condition exists, so long is the danger  real aud the risk of infective inflammation  imminent.  "It is not sufficient to abstain from  doing evil; it is imperatively necessary  to commence lo do good. It is not enough  merely to a-bstain from the foods of early  decomposition; it is essential to use freely  of those which cleanse as well as nourish,  which promotep'eristaltic action as well  as provide rich food for the myriad  mouths which open and drink along the  alimentary canal.  "There is needed a plentiful supply of  the beautiful juices of fresh ripe fruits,  and when thc season of fresh fruits and  vegetables are over, then we must remember that from the earliest ages the  healthiest races of the world have learned  how to preserve the juices of apples,  grapes and other fruits, and the salines of  barley and other cereals for winter use.  Fruit juices cleanse and purify. If a man  has a foul tongue���������which is a sign of an  unclean alimentary canal���������it can be often  be cleansed most marvellously by a spare  diet of soft water, fruit juice, and dry  cereals.  "When the tongue is unclean it is certain that a considerable portion of the  alimentary canal is also unclean: but, ou  the other hand, a considerable portion of  the lower portion of the alimentary canal  may be fouled aud the tongue show no  sign of it. I5ut the diet which cleanses  the tongue will cleanse all the canal, so  that a well-balanced diet of juicy fruits  and juicy vegetables, and solid cereals  forms the basis of the best diet to secure  clean and healthy intestines."

Mark Twain had this to say  about prohibition:  ���������'I am a friend of temperanc*-,  and want it to succeed," said Mark  Twain, "but I don't think prohibition is practical. Tho Germans,  you see, prevent it. Look afc them.  I am sorry to learn that they have  just invented a mot-hod of making  brandy out of sawdust. Now what  chance will prohibition have when  a man can tako a rip saw and go  out and get drunk with a fence  rail? What is tho good of prohibition if a man is able to make  brandy smnshoa out of shingles on  his roof, or if he can get delirium  tremens by drinking the lege ofl  the kitcheu cb-nnj."  ������*������i*?-������*', i������<*r if* wi THE   LEDGE,   GREENWOOD,'   BRITISH   COLUMBIA.

Tlio country is tueti beautiful,  and 1 am comparatively free from the  dust of other uutos. Iu these rides I  love to cuiuniinie wilh nature and usually go alone.  Oue October I wns riding through  ihe beautiful hills of Vermont when  evening came upon me In it thinly settled region, and I eni/nunti-ivd u break  down at tbe sunn- time. I couldn't,  like Joshua, turn the'sun back in his  course, aud I saw nt n glance that I  couldn't repair (lie break In my auto.  Fortunately ucar tne was a house It  was a ijiu'cr looking sti-m-iure built of  brick and hexagonal in form. I .paving  my auto beside the road whore it wa-*  stalled, with a light before aud be-  Iiind, I went to the bouse resolved If  admitted to spend the night there.  There was not much encouragement  of a vok-ome fur me since it was now  quite dark and not n light was to be  seen at a single window,  Ou reaching Ihe premises I went to  the front door and heat on It with the  old fashioned1 brass linn's head knocker. I failed to rouse any one. Thi'u 1  . went around the house, looking for  a possible entrance. I found one  through a window the sash of which  had been left unlix-l-ed. '-"utering. i  struck a match und saw that I was in  a house furnished in colonial style.  Not a bed or bureau could have Iwti  less than a hundred years old. Il was  evidently the home when occupied of  refined and educated people.  Going upstairs. I found a bedroom  that suited me, wilh a four post bed  stead and a broad open fireplace. A  wood box stood beside the la iter, anil  I soon bad half a dozen logs burning  brightly. Then, returning to my auto.  I took my lunch basket, which I always carried in case of necessity, containing both meat and dri-jik, and returned. There were lamps in the  house and dishes, but.no eatables. 1  took of the dishes what few I needed,  weut upstairs, pulled a small table to  the fire and ate my supper, washing It  down with a pint of wine.  I bad beeu riding In the wind all day  and was very sleepy. Inst end-of getting into tlie bed, on which there was  what was required for comfort except  sheets and pillowcases. I fell asleep '������  my chair. 1 dou't know how long I  slept, but when I awoke the fire gave  out only tlie glow of coals. Keuiem  bering that I was alone in a deserted  house. I instinctively locked about tne  to make sure that 1 was perfectly safe.  On a wooden partition separating the  room from another hung an unframed  print, tbe head and shoulders of a  young girl, life size. There was something about the eyes that arrested my  attention. By the imperfect light they  seemed strange. In fact, they looked  like human eyes inserted In a paper  picture. I am not superstitious or  nervous, but the uncanny effect startled me. Throwing some light wood  on the Are, I started a blaze, but when  It came and I looked agaiu at the picture the eyes were merely printed. I  got up from my seat, went to them  and, seeing tbat they were paper,  threw off my outer garments, lay  down on the bed and went to sleep.  The nest morning I was awakened  by hearing a sound as though something had been set down outside my  door. Remembering the eyes od the  picture, I was somewhat curious at  any happening. Getting up, I went to  the door, opened it, and there at my  feet was a pitcher of hot water.  My mind went back at once to the  fairy tales of my boyhood. I was  surely in the house of a magician, and  I hoped that the "princess" was there  too. Performing ray ablutions, I put  on ray clothes and, opening the door,  went downstairs. The first room I  struck'was' the dining room, and what  was my astonishment to find the table  set for breakfast, with but one plate.  "Hello, fairy!" I called jocularly-  that is, I tried to call jocularly, but  failed, and when the wall gave back  no sound but that of my own voice I  confess I felt a very uncanny sensation. Had I suffered some sudden  brain trouble?  I was rattled. Tbe eyes I had seen  the night before, the pitcher of hot  water, the breakfast table set���������with  dishes only���������had completely upset me.  I determined to explore the house and  bolted right Into the kitchen. I found  no one, but a Are was lighted in the  store, and on it coffee was spouting up  Jn a- percolator. 1 went Into all tbe  other rooms ou the ground floor ancl,  Gliding no one. mounted the stairs to  explore the upper stories. There was  no one In any room. In the garret 1  found a locked door and couldn't effect an entrance, but It seemed to tne  that It was a storeroom. I .returned  to tbe room I had slept In. My heart  was beating like a kettledrum. I pooh-  poohed and tried to laugh at the odd  Ity of the situation, but It was no use.  I sat down In the chair In which I had  slept tbe night before and tried to reassure myself thnt I was mentally  ���������onnd. I don't remember how long I  was In my room���������perhaps fifteen or  twenty minutes���������when I heard a Up  it the door and a sweet voice say:  "Breakfast is ready."  I made a dash tc-i the door, opened  It aud looked anywhere, everywhere.  Not a sign of life!  But the odor of coffee, fresh made  toast and broiled meat reassured me.  I went down'��������� again Into the dining  room, and there on the breakfast table  were beefsteak, fried potaioes, eggs���������In  short, a flue breakfast. 1 looked Into  the kitchen; there huh no one there.  I sat down to tlie table, piiured out a  cup of coffee, helped myself to the  viands and ate my breakfast"  The first sip of coffee, the Urst mouthful of food, bracing me", as it did. made  me feel more confident that I was not  lu a condition to be transferred to bed  Suffered Several Years With  Kidney Trouble, "Peruna  Cured ie."

"And yet," I argued, relapsing into doubt, "insane persons be  lleve themselves of perfectly sound  mind."  I arose from the table, went into a  sitting room In the front of tlie house  and looked out through a window  There was my auto standing beside the  road just as I had left it the night be  fore. 'J'he morning was bright, and 1  would have liked to lay a plan for its  mending a-id a possible getting away.  1 but would not do so on any account  before having solved the mystify. I  sat down in the sunshine, lit a cigar  anil began to plan-not the repairing  of my auto, but a met In-d of finding  out whence came the attention I was  receiving in this apparently unoccupied  house  I finally concluded that ihe only way  to draw out the mysterious somebody  who was ministering to my wants was  to entrap him or her into a fancied  security. I resolved lo pretend lo  sleep. Taking up a book I found on a  table. I began in read, uiuliling and  starting up alternately till finally, a.-  if overpowered by slumber. I began t-,  breathe heavily and then to snore.  Ir  wasn't long before I  Heard  whisperings   in   the   ball    without.     Then  nftei a dead silen- e between my part  I.v closed eyelids I saw  a face peering  through the doorway,  which  was but  half open.    It  was the face of a girl  It was withdrawn, and the face of an  other girl appeared.   Three of them in  suct-e.-sioii  surveyed   me   with  evident  interest and satisfaction, to say  noth  lug of merriment.  "Oho.'*'I exclaimed mentally "There's  mischief in the wind Trust a girl for  deviltry and three trirls for three times  as much of it as one. I have evidently fallen into the toils of a bevy of  them, and they are havlug great fun  at my expense."  1 didn't bother myself as to how  these girls came to be there. I con  tented myself witli waiting and watch  Ing through my half closed eyes. A  door behind me was opened, and pres  en.t!r  I felt a ticklintr on  the back ol  my-neck. I knew at once thai one of  these girls was tensing me with a  feather. 1 made a frantic grasp for  what was Intended for a bug. but  snored on. The bug lighted on my  cheek���������another fi-aiillc clun-li and an  other, my efforts to catch the Insect  becoming mure and more ludicrous.  At last I heard smothered laughter.  It Is a law of nature that the more  successful we are the more venturesome we become. Women who are  most timid In beginning to take risks  eventually become the most reckless  plungers. Being young and fond of  adventure, 1 was delighted with the  turn the affair had taken. The more  venturesome the girls the sounder I  slept, tbe, louder I snored. Then a  girl tiptoed Into the room and when I  moved scurried out. Another, emboli!  eiied by the success of the first, did the  same thing. Then I heard a whispering, catching but a few words���������"Dare  you to kiss him."  "Well, now," I remarked to myself,  "this Is getllug Interesting." And I  snored loud enough to wake the dead.  Then oue of the girls-wasn't she  pretty, though!���������stole into the room, ev  ery fiber under quick control, the spirit of daredevil in her'eyes, advanced,  retreated, advanced again I never  slept so quietly iu my life, though my  heart was beating like a triphammer  Then she tiptoed' around beside uie,  bent over rue. straightened up, bent  again, lowered her face to mine and  lightly touched my lips with hers.  There was a frightful shriek as I  infolded her tightly within my two  arms and a whole chorus from those  without. 1 rained kisses ou her cheeks  and on her lips. "Thanks for the  night's lodging." I paid, giving her a  smack on her right cheek. "And this  Is for the hot water at my room, this  for the breakfast." And so I expressed  my gratitude for everything I bad received and many things 1 hadn't received.  Well, ths cllirax had come and pass  ed. livery one came forward, aud the  oldest girl gave me an explanation  The bouse belonged to the father of  one of them, who had Inherited it from-  his great-grandfather and always kept  It exactly as he had received it. In  summer it was used by the family for  a country residence. The night of my  arrival the daughter of the owner had  brought a party of her girl friends  with provisions for spending a weekend. They had found signs of some  one within and finally ventured inside  themselves, surveying tne through the  eyes of tbe picture which had been  turned into peepholes for a former  purpose. Then it had occurred to tbem  to have their amusement in mystifying  me.  Some young men���������and a chaperon,  of course���������were expected during the  day, and I was invited to make one of  the party. I accepted arid had the  time of my life. I have since been  there often and am extravagantly fond  of the place. There is good reason for  this. I met my wife there, gave het  ray first kiss there, courted her there  and married her In tbe very room lo  which I kissed her.

The festive season of Christmas has  :ts mysteries no less than the other  seasons of the year, and some of the  most inexplicable concern the whereabouts of persons who then suddenly  become "missing."   '    '  Some turn up, or are ultimately discovered, having been the victims of  loss of memory or mental balance;  but the majority, alas, are never  heard of again, leaving"relatives in an  agony of suspense as to what fate has  overtaken them.  To the latter order belongs the case  of a Liverpool gentleman named Robinson, who on Christmas" Eve, a few  years ago, wont into a tobacconist's  shop in the centre of the town to buy  some cigars. He most certainly must  have come out again, for the salesman  who served him distinctly remembers  seeing him leave with his.purchase  under his arm.  But so far as anybody else was concerned he was never seen after enter-  ng the shop, ar.d today his disappearance is as great a mystery as ever.  For his family Christmas is anything  but a festive season, reminding them  as it does of the great sorrow which  at this period first came into their  lives. '      v-  They still entertain the hope that  sooner or later his whereabouts, or,  at any rate, his fate, will be made  known to them, though down to the  present all efforts to trace him have  been without avail. He could not  have -more completely disappeared if  the earth had opened and swallowed  him up.  Only the Christmas Eve before that  a Manchester professional man went  to one of the local theatres with his  wife and her sister. During the performance he went out to see a man,  and was absent for about twenty minutes. On his return he was amazed  to find that the two others had vacated their scats.  After waiting some time for them to  come back, he made inquiries of the  attendants, who, however, had not  noticed them going out. Expecting to  find them at home, he proceeded there  only to meet with disappointment.  They did not arrive that night, and,  indeed, have not arrived yet.  Where they are, or what wns their  fate, he has never been able to ascertain, though he hns spent a good d -al  of money in endeavoring to find out.  It wns known, however, that he did  not get on very well with his better  half, and it may be that she took the  opportunity to escape from an unhappy alliance.  On'the last Chr'stm-is ni_ht of the  nineteenth century Miss Tryphena  Mawdsley mysteriously disappeared  from her parents' home nt the Fleece  Hotel, Wigan. There was no reason  that could "fee assigned for her mysterious disappearance, which, needless  to say, caused quite a sensation and  the greatest anxiety.  She was only twenty-two years of  age; and in the hope of discovering  her whereabouts, or learning her fate,  a description of her, and what she  wins wearing, was circulated far and  wide.  There was a curious sequel to the  sudden disappearance of two Blackburn girls the very same Christmas.  They made it up between them to  leave home, and left accordingly on  Christmas Eve. After visiting various  towns in Lancashire, they presented  themselves at an orphanage on the  eve of the new year, and represented  themselves as homeless orphans.  They were accordingly admitted, but  after they had been in the institution  several days the superintendent happened to come across a newspaper description of the missing couple. As  the result, before many hours had  elapsed they were restored to their  friends. Why they had been guilty  of such a silly escapade did not transpire.

TRY ZAM-BUK for PILES  THE AVERAGE WOMAN  NEEDS MORE BLOOD  Nerves Easily Irritated, She  Worries Over Little  " Things  To the woman   in    the   home���������the  woman closely confined to the house  either    through'  household   duties   or  the cure of children,  or both ��������� Dr.  Williams'   Pink   Pills   are  a   positive  blessing.    The  average    woman    has  too  little   blood.       Her  nerves    are  easily irritated, she worries over little things; has severe headaches and  backaches and is sick  most   of    the  time.   With the woman who uses Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills the condition is  different.     She   is    always  well and  the    care   of    her   children,   or   her  household  duties, is  a real pleasure.  This   is   because  Dr.   Williams'  Pink  Pills enrich  the  blood    supply    and  bring bounteous health and strength.  Here is proof.     Mrs.    Fanny   Shepherd, Girvin, Sask,    says:      "I   am  the  mother of  a large    family    and  was worn out, weak and irritable.    I  kept    going    to    my    doctor   about  every six  weeks, and  ho would give  me something "to keep me going a  little    longer."      But    it    was    like  winding  up a clock,  I  soon got run  down again, and although life'seemed hardly worth living,    I    did   not  wish to die because of    leaving    my  little children.    1 continued like this  for some years, but at last summoned up enough energy to strike out a  new- departure and got a supply    of  Dr.   Williams'   Pink Pills.     I barely  hoped they would help me, but to my  surprise, "before   I   had   been   taking  thorn long I began to feel like a different woman.    I still continued taking the Pills for some time, and they  made me as well and strong as any  woman need wish to be.   Once more I  would enjoy life thoroughly, and have  done so ever since.    I  never need  a  doctor now,    and    everything   seems  bright and  cheerful.    I  shall  always  recommend  Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills  to anyone who in my opinion needs a  tonic of any kind."

Mr. F.  \stridge, of 3 St. Paul St., St.' Catherines, Ont., says: "For five years I  have suffered untold agony with protruding piles. The pain was so great  at times I would almost scream.  "I lost weight and had no appetite,  .[tried everything I ever heard of for  piles, as 1 was willing to take anything to get relief. It was useless,  however, and I almost gave up in  despair.  One day a friend gave me a sample  of Zam-Buk and told me of a friend  of his who had been cured. I decided  to try Zam-Buk and the relief I got  was encouraging. I used three boxes  and at the end of that time I.was  completely cured. I wish I could  have got Zam-Buk years ago; it would  have saved me a great deal of  misery."

In a certain camp, a "battalion was  being instructed on "How to take a  convoy through open country." One  company was told off to represent  convoy, the men being instructed that  thoy were to represent horses, cows,  and  wagons.  After being halted a short time, the  advance signal was given, and the  convoy moved on, but the major noticed that one man continued to lie  down, and galloping up to him in a  rage, said: "Man, why don't you advance?"  The soldier replied: "I can't sir."  Major:  "You  can't?    What  do  you  mean?"  "I'm a wagon," said the soldier,  "and I've got a wheel off."-Tit-Bits.

"Ye-s, I am looking forward to some  funny experiences,'-'said an enumerator in next year's census in England.  "Amusing incidents?   Bather! Perhaps my funniest was with an elderly  spinster,   whose household comprised  herself, a domestic, and a gentleman  boarder.   When.I called for her paper  I found she had not correctly stated  her age.  "She had correctly described her  condition as to marriage, but hpd added the superfluous information 'to  be married shortly.' The same note  was appended to the particulars'relating to her boarder, who was evidently about to be promoted' to the  position of master of the house.  ��������� "A male householder, who would  insist on ���������" describing himself as a  'sweated toiler,' occasioned me a good  deal of trouble. .He protested that  he had-no Christian name, and that  ie was too young at the time to have  iny knowledge of tlie date u_d place  ���������jf his birth.  . "But-he disclaimed being a 'particular chap,' and said I could write  him down as Beelzebub, born at Jericho in' the year one.  "Another enumerator was astonished to find a peer's wife described as  a 'cross-sweep,' and her son as a  'shoeblack,' born in 'Darkest Africa.'  These flippancies were followed by legal proceedings.  "Equally eccentric was a householder in a De-vonshiro town. This man  declined to fill u;i his paper on the  ground that he was unaware of hi_  own naime and thc place of his birth.  He was not going to 'perjure' .himself  by making a false return.  "Quite a delicious excuse was put  forward by a country clergyman for  refusing to return his paper to tlie  enumerator, who happened" to ,be his  parish clerk. He forwarded it direct  to the central office, witih a letter explaining that he did so because he  lid not want his wife's age to' become the subject o: alehouse gossip  'n the iiei_hborhood!  The enumerator who called for a  ertain author's r 'urn was much tick-  '.ed on seeing in it a note stating that  ihe said author was. according to his  .vife, 'both idiot and lunatic'!  "At the abode of a n.ight-worker, I  remember the ofi'cin] was informed  thoit this individual was in bed. His  reply that he must see him elicited  the comforting assurance, 'All right;  go to him if you like. He has only  been in bed an hour, and he left  word that he would kill anybody whe  .voke him up. A-id he'll do it, too!'  "Some novel o-- u-atioro.-, were giv-  n in the last c<.nsu- ret-, rns. Among-t  :hem were such as a 'doll surgeon,'  and 'bottle broker.' A man, whose  business was to keep an eye on hirers of dress-suits, doscribed himself  is a 'detective'; and a woman, who  hunted out absconding debtors, as a  'tracer.'  "But the funniest occupation of all  ���������eems to have been followed by a  boy, who wrote himself down as an  'apple-polisher.'  "Hindus candidly described themselves, as 'professional debtors,' 'constant borrowers,' or men of 'secret  resources.' Others still more candid-  ���������y _ styled themselves 'thieves and  'brigards.'  "One Hindu recorded that he could  not work because he was a fool. Another described himself as a 'storm  prophet.'  "But there was an air of refreshing candor about the native who declared that he was 'making a business  of marrying off his daughters 'for  money.'

Dated thin 10th day of January, mil.  WIL-MAM DKf,AHV.  jicr Sl'ENCKK IlKNKrtMA.V, AKOlit,  Is a billion a thousand millions  or a million millions ? That is the  question that some newspapers  have not yet settled. We always  thought that a billion was a thousand millions, although, in our  business, we have not yet had to  trouble ourselves about the high  spots in figures.  The Gig. Fiend.  The Cigarette Fiend is very  plentiful in this western country.  Everywhere you can see tbetn,  tied to a little roll of paper and  tobacco, puffing away as though  the universe would collapse if they  tlie not keep on blowing smoke  through their nostrils. Excessive  and violent use of the cig. makes  all its victims suH'cr from weakness  of will, mind, body and morals. It  is a difficult habit to break away  from and seldom can bo accomplished until the victims are placed  under restraint. The writer once  met a newsy on a O.P.R. train  who appeared to bo in terrible  agony. Touched with pity we  asked the poor chap what was the  matter. "I have sworn off cigarettes, and I havo not used one for  an hour." Apropos of this subject  we append tho following:  "You smoke thirty cigarettes a  day?"        .  "Yes, on an average."  "You don't blame them for your  run-down condition?"  "Not in the least, I blarao my  hard work."  Tho physician shook his head.  He smiled iu a vexed way. Then  took a li'ech out of a glass jar.  "Let mo show you something,"  he eaid,    "Bare your arm."  bared his  pale arm, and the other 'laid the  lean black leech upon it. The leech  fell to work busily. Its body began  to swell. Then all of a sudden a  kind of shudder convulsed it, and  it fell to the floor dead.  '"That is what your blood did to  that leech," said the physician.  He took up the little corpse between his finger and thumb. ''Quite  dead, you see.    You poisoned it."  "I guess it wasn't a healthy  leech in the .first place ?" said the  cigarette smoker, sullenly.  "Wasn't healthy, eh 1 "Well,  we'll try again." And the physician slapped two leeches on the  young man's thin arm.  "If they both die," said the  patient, "I'll swear off. or, at least,  I'll cut down my daily allowance  from thirty to ten."  Even as he spoke the smaller  leech shivered and dropped dead,  and a moment later the larger out-  fell beside it.  ' 'This is ghastly," said the young  man, "lam worse than the pestilence to these leeches."  "It is the empyreumatic oil in  your blood," said tho medical man.  "All cigarette smokers have it."  "Doctor, said the young mail,  regarding tho three dead leeches  thoughtfully, "I half believe your  right."   :  The Gorgeous Bars.  Flaneur says in the Mail-Empire:  The temperance people have been  laying emphasis on tho wrong reforms. Tho cutting off of licences  in the City of Toronto has had one  certain effect, and only one. It  has handsomely increased the profits of the men who survived the  ordeal. They are making from  $5,000 to $40,000 a year out of  their bars. No city in tho world,  I am told by men who have traveled much, havo such spacious, such  gorgeous bars as this city, which is  noted for its supposed abhorrence  of the liquor traffic. As a rule,  our hotols are adjuncts to our bars;  in tho United States tho bars are  adjuncts to the hotels. If we cut  off twenty or forty more hotels our  bars will become- still more gorgeous, and the averago income of  our hotel keepers will bo raised to  $25,000 a year.
