All Treatments Failed. Believed  by Peruna.  Elinor for the first time iu her life  was looking tlie future st]unrel.v iu ihe  eye. Hitherto she hail been content to  nibble at life, immclihig away contentedly enough, satisfied with the joy of  the moment. And she might have gone  ou so for tin iudelinite time hud it not  been for the occurrence of the 3d of  ��������� June.  New Year's day Is significant only  because then, by common consent,  time moves up a number. This particular June 3 niiide au Indelible Impression on Elinor's mind because on that  day she began to be thirty-two���������begun  at the very beginning, of course, but  Btill she began.  "I shall say I'm thirty-one all this  year anyway," she announced defiantly to that other self ihnt receives our  dearest confidences. "It's such bad  form lo say you're thirty-one years  and two months old, or whatever it  may happeu to be. And if I have to  write it I'll make it thirty-one iu round  numbers���������not even thirty-one pins."  All of which, as the reader can see,  was very unscrupulous.  However, ns she found, by f.-ir the  worst tiling about beginning to be  thirty-two was Ihe fact that you  couldn't forget il. The harder you  tried the belter you remembered it.  ������������������Well, what if I am'.'"  This was the remark that our heroine slung into space when, after a  ���������week of torment, she sat down with  her chin resting on her hands to have  the thing out. -'"What if 1 am? So  are plenty of other gir��������� women, 1  mean. Alice is thirty, Mary thirty-one.  Mabel twenty-eight."  She paused in Iter enumeration.struck  by the thought that all these friends  were married. Matrimony was a subject to which she had given the minimum of thought. She supposed she'd  come to it some fime. but she was in  no hurry to enter tlmt narrow pasture  so long as there was pleasant browsing  to be had outside.  When she had thought of it at all it  had seemed to mean chiefly a tiresome  round of housekeeping that resulted in  three perpeudicular lines just over the  nose, a memorandum of worry that she  secretly determined to avoid as long as  possible. But now that she was beginning to be thirty-two the thing was  different.  Could it be, she asked herself, that  she bad made a mistake after all and  that those three incisive lines were as  much of an honor as an oflicer's bars''  ��������� Could it be that there was a pohu  when oue begau to be thirty-two. .for  Instance, wheu becominguess demanded that one should lay aside "Miss"  just as it, required that one should  stop wearing pink?  She faced her plight with a stiff upper lip, realizing that she had no one  but herself to blame. There had been  a number of men���������the mischievous dimple at the corner of her mouth danced  Into sight for n second at the thought j  of how many���������who had done their best  to stop her in what she now recognized  for the first time her mud career. She  had declined their offers kindly, but  with a certain royal .carelessness that  recked not of possible dark hours to  come. Wheu did any woman born to  the belief in tbe divine right of queens  ever foresee dethronement?  She had inadvertently "lived over,"  as she had once beard it quaintly  phrased. There was no doubt about it,  she was an old maid! She repeated it  aloud in all its brutal truth, scorning  such euphemisms as "spinster" and  "bachelor woman."  "You're an old maia���������just a pianioiu  maid!" she said audibly. But it sounded like a joke���������like one of those things  too bad to be true. She would probably wake up after a bit to Ond that  she bad been married since her eighteenth year and had a son ready to enter college and a daughter about to  make her debut.  T No such happy awakening came,  however, and -with desperate philosophy she decided that since she was  an old maid she would enter into the  role for nil it was worth. At least  she would avoid the error of being  kittenish.  Little by little her plainest gowns  were brought into requisition. Certain  little graces and frivolities of the toilet  were one by one abandoned. She timidly asked Alice, her closest friend, to  teach the children to call her "auntie,"  a thing which she had hitherto forbidden under the penalty of a sudden  death to the cherub that should first  be guilty of It.  "What  is   the   matter   with  you?"  gasped Alice, with a stare of amazement   "And wlnit hnve you been do-  Jug with your hair, and why are you  wearing that ugly old dress, with all  the hundsome things that yon hnve?"  "I'm Just wearing ilie things suitable  to my age before the dear friends have  a chance to point  them out to me,"  was the answer.   And that night her  friend confided to her husband, with  thoughtful regret, that Elinor was becoming a regular old maid.  Another of her friends nnd com-  rudes, Max Anderson, also noticed the  subtle change. Theirs had been a sort  of brother and sister friendship of long  standing. For years he had scolded  and criticised nnd bullied her. Tl)������  one thing that be hadn't done was to  make love, and Elinor had long since  given up trying to make him.  "Haven't you ever been In love.  Max?" she had asked him once, with  genuine curiosity In the gray eyes that  hud been more than one man's undoing. A dull flush came up Into his  face, and lie looked at her strangely.  "Yes.".be answered shortly, " I have.  Benutiful night, Isn't it?" she went  on after a moment, and there was a  touch of "mockery In his voice- 'thnt  mude the questioner wince. Aftef-thnt  she usked him no more.  "What's up?" ho demanded, surveying her cynically as she came down  Mrs. Hohmann.  Mrs.   Wm.   Hohmann, 2764 Lincoln  Ave.,   Chicago,   111,,  writes:  "I suffered, with  catarrh of the bronchial tubos and had  a terrible cough ever  since a child.  "I would sit up In  bed with pill OW9  propped up behind  mc, but still the  cough would not let  me sleep. I thought  and everybody else  that I had consumption.  "So reading the  papers about Peruna I decided to  try, without the  least bit of hope that  It would do me any  good. But after tak  ing three bottles I noticed a change.  My appetite got better, so I kept on,  never discouraged. Finally I seemed  not to cough so much and the pains in  my chest got better and I could rest at  night.  "I am well now and cured of a chronic  cough and sore throat. I cannot tell  you how grateful I am, aud I cannot  thank Peruna enough. It has cured  where doctors have failed and I talk  Peruna wherever I go, recommend it to  everybody.

"Is it some sort of lay  sackcloth and ashes? What particular sin are you mourning?"  "The great sin of omission!" she  answered demurely as they sat down  opposite each other. But he looked incredulous, lie had not known her fifteen years for nothing.  "Commission, you mean," he said  dryly, with au air of remembering  things. '  "No; omission! I'd tell you about  it, only you're never any comfort to  a person. You're just like a stone.  Max. I don't know, how I've endured  you so long."  lie turned his eyes lazily upon her  with n look long, steady, inscrutable.  Neither spoke, but after a moment  Elinor, with a beautifully assumed air  of perfect ease, sought refuge in a  study of the pattern of the carpet.  '"Possibly I may tell you some time,"  he said, with a nonchalant laugh, "but  go on: let me hear what's the trouble.  You always fell me eventually."  And so. in fact, she did. It was the  beauty of Max tliat he made you liko  and hate him simultaneously. But no  matter what you felt you wanted him,  and you usually confided in him. That  at least had been Elinor's experience,  and it was being repeated for the hundredth time now. She wanted to tell  him; she always wanted to tell him everything. She leaned forward suddenly, ������������������with a childish bid for sympathy in  her eyes.  "You see, .Max, I've omitted to get  married. And now I'm thirty-one"���������  "Plus," he corrected gravely.  "Thirty-one," site continued firmly,  "and, though it's been great fun���������well,  all at once I realized that I'm ah old  maid. It's so unexpected. Why haven't  I married? That's what I don't understand."  There'was a pause in which it seemed to her that;she suddenly heard the  beating of her own heart. Before she  fully realized what had happened her  hands were held close and Max was  saying:  "Look at me, Elinor, and see if you  can't find'out."

Stage fright of tlie sort that afflicted Whit Cunliffe, nt one time a prominent singer in English music hulls, is  not -avoidable. Fortunately also it is  not'common. At a place whese he wa*  engaged in Birmingham one of the attractions was a lion show, some of  the beasts being really wild and untamed. Nearly the whole stage was  taken up with the setting of the animal show.  "Just as I was going oii," said Cunliffe in telling uf the .incident, "1  hoard ji hurried rush and confused  shouting, and some one slammed an  iron gate. I heard a voice say: 'Just  in time, lie was nearly out.' My music  was starting, so I had not time to enquire.    1  went on tlie stage.  "In a moment I heard ominous  growls and savage snarls, mixed with  much whip-cracking and strenuous  breathing. I am never fond of a wild  animal show, and 1 felt distinctly  nervous that night. The cloth behind me sagged and swayed, and then  to my horror suddenly in the wings  I saw the huge head and front of a  lion.  "I was singing a song called I  Would, which hud a lot of short  verses. As I sting them, my blood  running cold. I watched the lion. It  seemed to advance slowly, and its  baneful eyes glittered in a truly horrible way. I could not go off that  side without passing it, so 1 prepared^  to make my exit  with haste.  "Turning, I was horrified to see another lion on  the other side.  "I was caugiit like a mouse in n  trap, I dared not go off the stage; I  dared not show my discomfituie to the  audience. There wns only one thirii*  for me to do���������sing. So I sang in  desperation, hoping that some one  would come and lake the lions away.  They told me afterwards that 1 sang  niuety-cight verses, but 1 think tliut  was   unkind.  "I wondered how long it would take  those two brutes to make up theit  mind lo come into the full glare of the  footlights, and I had just prepare*.;  to leap into the stalls, regardless <-l  the consequences, when I heard tlu  hoarse voice of one of the stage hand.--  say, ' 'Ere, Bill, these two chaps are  too far forward.

A correspondent of The Spectator  (London) contributes two anecdotes of  Wordsworth. "The scornful pity fell  by an old gardener for Darwin, who.  as he toiled among the idle rich, reminds me of an anecdote which 1  have somewhere come across abou*  tlie similarly unproductive Wordsworth":  An old lr.borer near Eydal, who had  often seen the poet, had been st:uck  by liis odd way of spouting hia verse.-  out-of-doors. When he was thus "booing his pottery" he seemed to the  peasant to be quite daft; but his inn  lady was intermittent, for actually In  could sometimes say "Good morrow,  John," just like auyone else. This  may be supplemented by one of the  Wordswortiiiana which came to me  on good authority. Some thirty years  ago au aged lady who in her girlhood  had known the poet, told ine that he  once showed her a daisy besprinkled  with clew and applied fo it the lines  which 1 quote from memory:  Small   service   is   true service   while  it lasts;  Of   friends,   however   humble,   scorn  not once;  The daisy by thc shadow that it casts  Protects the  lingering dewdrop from  tlie sun.  I rather gathered that the stanza was  composed on the spot; but it is possible that it had been written before,  and was drawn from the poet by the  object-illustration. This incident  seems to me worth mentioning. It  awakened a special interest in a  grandson of Wordsworth, who told me  that it was almost, if not quite, the  only one of his great kinsman's poems  the occasion of which had been unknown to him.  GOOD HEALTH FOR  RUNJOWN MEN  If You Are Weak and Easily-  Tired Try Dr. Williams-  Pink Pills  Anaemia is a state into which one  falls because of lack of blood, or because the ' blood is poor, weak and  watery. The man or woman who  hns not enough blood is pale, languid, easily fired and easily depressed. As the trouble progresses other  symptoms show themselves, and the  life of the sufferer is one of misery.  Anaemia opens the door to consumption, and gives victims to all the  epidemic maladies, because the whole  body is weakened and unable to resist the inroads of disease. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are tho best remedy in the world for the cure of anaemia, and all its afleiident miseries.  They make tlm blood rich, red and  pure, thus bringing health and  strength to weak, despondent men  and women. We do not know of a  single case of anaemia where Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills have fail.ed to  cure if given a fair trial. Mr." John  Hastings, Venn., Sask., was a victim  of this trouble and found new health  through Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. He  says  driving a team and found myself  gradually running down. I did not j  pay much attention to it at first, but  soon I began to lose my appetite and  it was a trial to get through my day's  work. I got medicine from the doctor on the works, but it did not help  me, and finally I got so bad I told  the foreman I would have to quit.  He told me not to lose hope, that he  would get some medicine that would  soon make mc all right. That night  he went to town and bought me three  boxes of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. I  had not taken" more than two boxes  when I began to feel better, and after  1 h*_d used five boxes I was as well  and strong as ever, and could do a  day's work with any man on the job.  I may just add that before I began  taking the Pills I was so run down  that T weighed only 122 pounds, and  while taking them I gained 22 pounds.  I cannot- say too much in favor of  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and strongly  recommend them to all run clown  men."  You can get these Pills through  any medicine dealer or by mail at 50  cents a box or six boxes for $2.50  from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co.,  Brockvilie, Ont.

May, has been engaged, under the  supervision of Lady LLangattock, has  now been finally approved. The bust,  \vhich is looked upon as a remarkably  successful study of the distinguished  aviator and motorist, is borne upon  a four-side pedestal, each of the four  sides being ornamented with a panel  descriptive of a notable event in Mr.  Roll's career. These represent: The  Paris to Sherborne (Norfolk) balloon  voyage; starting for Calais (aeroplane  flight); Paris to Berlin "(-motor race);  Dover to Calais and back (aeroplane  flight)."'.The rear of the bust itself,  instead of being left in the rough,  as is usual, is finished with a modelling of roses and inscribed with  the name "Charles Stewart Rolls,"  together with a Latin phrase prophesying that the aviator will be renowned  to posterity. Mr. May, it will be remembered, was the sculptor employed  on the national Armada Memorial  erected by 'the nation on Plymouth  Hoe.

"Meantime Blondin had coached me as  to what I should do. I was to put my  weight on his shoulders only with my  arms, and clasp his body about with my  legs. But I could not put my weight on  ins legs, as that would encumber his  movements. I had to keep all my weight  on his shoulders.  "In Jul-;,'1860, everything being ready  I took my place on Blondin's back, and  we started to cross the rope. We began  the descent from the Canadian side of the  rope, and by reason of the fact that I had  to bear my weight on Blondin's shoulders  and could only use my arm to support  myself, frequent rest* were necessary. I  told Blondin when I wanted to rest, and  then dropped down on the rope on one  foot and waited till my arms were relieved, when I wou'd spring up again, using  my arms to lift and hold mystlfiu place.  There was a great crowd preseut, but I  did not see it at first.  "From my place on Blondin's back I  could look out to the American s'de and  see below the stunted pines thrusting  their sharp points up from the edge of  the foaming.- roaring waters, ready to  split us in two if we fell. I remember  that I was very anxious to get over, and  I recall, too, that the great rope had been  swinging  40   feet at  the   centre.

The result  was  that in a year the  Evening Jour-  bar, placing both  "Ham Grease*' was  behind the bar as referee and the  man to whom the louse crawled  was "stuck" for the drinks.  Later in the evening the Stroller  referred a bare-knuckle prize-fight  between the ''Yellow Kid"  fellow called "Slim," the question  at issue  being which of the two  was to have the honor of sleeping  with  the  Black  Prince,  a   negro  pugilist  who  had    arrived    from  Skagway that evening and secured  a room at  the International  containing a double bed, half of which  he generously offered to the  victor  of the contest.

NO FEET  In a village in the heart of Tou-  raine there lived an old man.  whose pride it is that he once had  the honor of making a pair of trousers for Balzac. ��������� The old tailor delights to tell of his meeting with  the distinguished Frenchman.

It was the  middle span. Below us 250 feet roared  thc river, and over it we swung from side  to side. "Still moving on steadily Blondin never trembled. When he had gone  ten feet on this middle span some one on  the American side pulled the guy line.  We afterwards found out it was done  intentionally, and the rope was stopped  in its swing.   '  "Blondin stopped and his pole went  from side to side in a vain efibrt to secure  his balance.   At one time hispolc was up  and down on the right side, and another  up and down on the left, and I recall now  with wonder that I was only curious to  know whether he would succeed in gaining  control   of himself, he   started   to  run across the horrible span, and in safety  reached the   point where the guy* rope  came from the American shore.   Then to  steady himself Blondin put his foot on  the guy rope and tried to stop,-but the  guy snapped, and with a dash of speed  he ran swiftly twenty-five or thirty  feet  further, and said, 'Dcsceudez vous.'  "The perspiration-now stood out on  his neck and shoulders in great beads  and we balanced ourselves on the sway-  ingrope. Presently he said, 'allons, 'and I  raised myself to his shoulders and  we  went on safely and withont accident towards the shore.   It was not, however,  untifwe landed that I appreciated what  had been done.   Then itoccured to  me  that the man who had pulled the guy  line was one of those who had bet that  the feat could never be accomplished and  my indignation mastered my reactionary  feeling; of fear.   You see, many thousands  of dollars were bet upon the ability of  Blondin to carry a man over, and human  cupidity stops at no sacrifice.   Then came  the congratulations and praises of pluck  and the rest of it, so that in my boyish  foolish clations I soon forgot everything  him. He  would write a spell, then stare  wildly about, and then go at it  again as if he knew that a world  was waiting for his words.  After standing near and watching the great man for awhile, the  tailor at last felt that he must interrupt Baizic in order to get his  measure for the trousers. Balzac  was extremely good natured, smiled  as the tailor measured him, but  spoke only once.  _ "No feet," said he, as the tailor  iinished his measurements. Then  ho turned to his work]  The worthy tailor had no idei  v������h:it this meant but lacked courage  to interrupt the novelist again to  ask. However, he chanced to  meet a servant on his way out, and  of him inquired what M. Balzac  meant by "no feet."  "Oh," responded the servant,  "M. ��������� Balzac wants his trousers  made withont any opening at the  bottom, so that he can sit and write  without having to put on slippers."  A CLOSE SHAVE.  "Mama," said little Elsie,   "do  ever go to heaven?"  "Why, of course, my dear. What  makes you ask?"  "Because I never see any pictures of  angels with whiskers."  "Well," said the mother, thoughtfully,  ' some men do go to heaven; but they  get there by a very close shave:"  men  JUST LIKE SOME OTHERS.  A few years ago, when John L. Sullivan  was playing a short, tumultuous engagement as Simon Legree with a road company, a newspaper reporter in Joplin,  Mo., was interviewing him.  "And do you think, Mr. Sullivan,"  asked the reporter, "that the play of  'Uncle Toms Cabin' really brought on the  war?"  "I don't know as to that sonny,"  growled Sullivan, "but I do know we certainly gave those Spaniards hell!"  ECONOMICAL.

"I am 35 years  old,"   announced   a  woman of 56 at a tea last week.  "And I am 26," said a woman older.  Then turning to a girl of 17, who stood  nearby, she asked; "How old are you  Ethel?"

May's   Probable   Successor   Is   Well-
Known  and  Popular   In  Canada.
Reports   from   England   state   that
Admiral Sir W. H. May, one of tho
most eminent officers of  the  firitish
navy will relinquish-his post as chief
in command of the Home Fleet, and
thnt his successor will probably be a
sailor    agreeably    known    to    Canadians,   Prince   Louis   of   Bnttenberg.
He has indeed been personally known
to Canadians for more than a generation.   As a young man in the seventies  being then a younger scion    of
an impoverished German principality
he had a project of marrying and tjt-
tling clown in Toronto.   Thirty years
later he came back and spent a real-
happy holiday among old  friends at
Quebec,   Montreal   and   Toronto   and
incidentally   touched   the   button   nt
the opening of the Canadian National
Exhibition.    It is  said   that, he   has
not benefited  in the least in his career   in   the   navy   through   his   relationship to the royal family.   Indeed
it is   not  too  much  to say .that  the
reverse hns been  the case.    Had he
possessed   another  and  less  German
name   there   is   no   doubt   that   he
would  have  been   First Sea  Lord  of
the   Admiralty   before  to-day.    Years
ago he was passed over for command
niter command for which he was eminently fitted  in every way owing to
the   German    atmosphere   that   surrounds his name.   If he succeeds Admiral Sir  W.  If.  May in  the Home
Fleet there will no doubt ho some outcry raised, says Modern Society, but
as a mutter of fact the prince is thoroughly  l'ritish  in his sentiments and
aspirations, otherwise he would havo
accepted the throne of Bulgaria when
it   was  offered   to  him several  years
ago.    He is one of the most popular
men  in  tlie  royal   navy to-day.   Not
only is lie noted for thc possession of
ail   those   kindlinesses  of  heart  and
tender delicacies of feeling which endear him to ull who serve under him,
but his natural sense of justice is so
true,   and   his   administration   is   so
lenient, and tempered with 550 full a
consideration  of nil  extenuating circumstances, that if the prince says a
thing lias to be done that is all the
men  want to  know.    And  it has always  been  so, ..ever  since  he  was  a
midshipman,   when   his   "command"
consisted of a boat's crew ashore. He
is said to have never lost a man on
these  occasions.    With  all,   he  is   a
strict disciplinarian���none more strict
���but  not  through   fear,  and  is perhaps  the  best  and   most  thoroughly
up-to-date  officer  in   the  royal   navy
10-day.    Everything  new   in   science,

How to Enjoy Ginger Ale.
Down in Ottawa Parliamentary banquets come as often ns a shower in
April. Nearly every day an item appears in the society columns that Mr.
So and So gave "a jolly dinner last
night." At most of these functions
it is customary to have wines included on the menu, but not always. Hon.
William Paterson, Minister of Customs, was once host at what he was
proud to call a "dry" banquet. Ginger nle constituted the sole line of
refreshments, 01 was supposed to.
Not a few of the guests felt that they
could not do justice to the dinner
without something a trifle stronger
than ginger ale, so they entered into
a conspiracy with the waiters at the
cafe to have their favorite brands
smuggled to ihe table with all the approved methods of those conscienceless travelers who manage to evade
the customs duties which the collectors under the Minister of the Crown
are paid to levy.
The waiters received special instructions to serve Scotch and soda to certain guests, but not to use anything
but ginger ale bottles, previously tampered with, of course.
The plan worked to perfection, and
the dinner was one of the jolliest'of
the jolly. In fact, it has passed into
the annals of Parliamentary entertainment as a record-breaker for merriment, but the climax was reached
at an early hour in the morning when
Hon. Mr. Paterson, in rising just before the time came to sing "Auld
Lang Syne," took occasion to remark:
"I am delighted that we have all had
such an enjoyable time with nothing
stronger than ginger ale, and it only
goes to show what remarkable advances the temperance cause is making in this country."
A clergyman in the Midlands, well-

portion of thc loaf had been consumed
and a penny left. A scrap of dirty
paper under the latter set forth that
the copper was "for a penn'orth of

Marriage Unnecessary.
When a drunkard among the Nas-
caupee Indians was found frozen to
death recently on their Canadian reservation, the other members of.the
tribemade up a jury for an inquest,
as they had seen their white neighbors do   and brought in this verdict:
"The deceased came to his death
from the freezing of a great quantity
of water inside him, which, they were
of the opinion, he had drunk for
These Indians are the most primitive tribe now in existence and live
as their fathers did for untold generations. When conversing they either
shout or adopt a petulant, whining
tone which would lead one to imagine that they are quarreling violently, where as they are only discussing some trivial topic in the most
peaceful way.
Marriage with them is simply a
consent to live together. Tf the girl
is willing, so much the better; if not-
provided her parents agree ��� she is
dragged off forcibly to the wigwam

had  failed  in  weight and ".'lost color.
I  had   to  rest  several  times  on  my

hours   it    took    more    than   all   my
strength to fulfil my duty.   My doctor  advised  me to give  up teaching
and take a long rest.   But at this time
��� a friend persuaded me to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and I got six boxes.
I hadn't finished the first box when I
felt a little better and by the time I
had used the six boxes I was fully recovered  and   enjoying    the    best of
health. _ At a later date I  was troubled   with   eczema   and" my  faith   in

Artois. Laporte calmly put on his hat
and sat down. Louis, jealous even
at that age of his kingly dignity, at
once  demanded:

HEALTHTrTcHiLDREN  ARE A BLESSING  Healthy babies are good babies,  and the good baby is a blessing in  every home. Nothing can give the  mother or father more pleasure than  to see baby play. Every movement is  watched with delight; every new  word spoken brings pride to the fond  parents. It is only the sickly baby  that makes homo wretched ��������� and,  mothers, it is not baby's fault when  he is sick. You are the one to blame.  Perhaps you give him candies, cakes  and other food which his little stomach is unable to digest. Then when  lie is cross and ailing you give him  some "soothing" mixtures to quiet  him. That is wrong���������remember his  little stomach is not as strong as a  grown persons, and also remember  that every spoonful of "soothing"  mixture you give him only does him  more injury���������it does not remove the  cause of his fretfulness���������it merely  dopes him into an unnatural sleep.  What is needed to make baby healthy  and happy is Baby's Own Tablets  ���������a medicine with a .guarantee of  safety. About them Mrs. Mathies  McCormick, West St. Peters, P.E.I.,  writes: "We have used Baby's Own  Tablets with good results. They are  certainly a blessing for mothers that  have cross sickly babies.

There are occensions in the life of  the undergraduate when ho gees temporarily off his head. Tho writer has  seen the Market Square at Cambridge  full of wild young maniacs, demolish-  iisg everything they could lay their  hands on���������shutters of shops, fencing,  tvoodon doors���������anything that would  burn.  There was an occasion when the  Dean thought he had quelled some  riot, and retired upstairs to his rooms.  To make quite sure that he did not  leave them again, the undergraduates  got hatchets ^,and tore the wooden  stairs down. Then everything available was burnt in one gigantic bonfire in the middle of the court, and  all because the college boat had gone  up a place in the races.  On one occasion, when a "rag"  was expected, the authorities were  surprised to find the courts absolutely  desertedr 'Then the awful truth was  realized. Every undergraduate in  the college was on the roof! The  movements of the Dean and the por.  tors were carefully followed with a  searchlight. An attempt to surprise  the citadel by means of ladders was  met by gently shaking the ladders  from the top. Then, from their secure position, the undergraduates  threw squibs and crackers into the  courts, and fired off rockets.  In the writer's first year, the authorities of the college raised much  feeling by enforcing the regulation  that no undergraduate was to walk  on the grass plots in thc centre of the  college courts, and, after some hard  thinking, a few original sparks hit  on a brilliant plan. One night, in  the small hours, a certain tutor attacked with insomnia was prowling  round the courts, when he was surprised to notice that the grass in one  court was covered with men, apparently searching for something. He  came forward to inquire, but as soon  as his presence was realized there was  a peneral stampede.  The truth came out a few weeks  after. The quality of thc grass seemed to decline, and, on examining it.  Hie gardener* were horrified to find  that it was full of tiny carrots and  turnips!  Carrie Nation, the famous saloon-  smasher of America, was announced  one day to speak at the debating society of a certain college. Everyone  was on tenterhooks at. the thought'of  such a terrible feminine tub-thumper  within the sacred precincts of a college. The debate was crowded, and  then a heavily-veiled, sombre-gowned  female, carrying the emblem of her  cause���������a hatchet���������entered the room.  Five minutes after, everything was  pandemonium, the hoax was discovered, and the undergraduate impersonator had gathered "up his skirts  and run.  The dread summons from the Dean  of the college to his presence comes���������  when it does come���������in a gently-worded missive, something like this:  "Mr.   is requested to call upon  the Dean between 7 and 7.15 p.m."  An innocent young freshman, in  pure ignorance of some inadvertent  crime, mistook it for a^kind invita-  tion, and replied in the following  terms:  "Mr ������������������ is very much obliged to  the Dean for his kind invitation to  dinner this evening, which he is, unfortunately, unable to accept, owing  to a previous engagement."  The Dean's next summon was  rather; more  peremptory.    Young But Wise.

In a school in a Western Ontario  town is a little girl who has not taken  quickly to the mysteries of addition.

The little girl smiled confi  dently, put up her hand and, whei.  noticed by the teacher, said "Shoe  polish."

Where Armies of Gibbering Apes Make  Life Miserable.  If at any time you should happen  to be in India, just remember to let  the monkeys alone, for to kill one  would mean to get yourself very cordially disliked by the Brahmans,  whose religion forbids them to take  the life of any creature. As a result  the people of India are overrun by a  great many animals against which  they can make but a feeble resistance, the monkey in particular being  a real tyrant.  The shops of the cities are without,  doors and windows, and whatever is.  offered for sale is exposed to the open,  air. The monkeys are always at hand  watching their opportunity and if the  merchant absent himself for a moment, instantly the nimble apes are  helping themselves* to anything they  fancy.  On one occasion the streets of Benares, the sacred city of India, had  become so overrun with these impudent little plunderers that the merchants held a meeting and- decided  that something must be done. Inasmuch as their religion forbade them  to kill the monkeys, they decided to  banish  the pesti>  The streets were surrounded and invaded, the monkeys were all captured'  and placed in cages. Then they were  taken to a large forest at a considerable distance from the city and freed  in the middle of the tree3. The scampered into the branches as if they  were having a very good time; and  there the merchants left them and  returned to their shops, rejoicing that  now they could nod in peace. That  evening there was a rare sight in Benares. Into the streets, just at dusk,  there came a great capering army of  apes. They .were the monkeys of Benares, who had found their way home  from the forest into which they had  been banished, and, though they must  have been very tired from traveling  on foot so long a distance, their joy  on reaching home again was so great  that they gamboled like a troop of  school children coming home from a  picnic.  Being town, brtxl monkeys, they had  not enjoyed country life. Next day  they were all at their old posts, raiding the food shops with renewed and  eager appetites and greatly refreshed  impudc-wo.

"You no doubt have observed the  lily white complexion of some women.  These women aie sacrificing years of  their lives for that beautiful skin by  the use of arsenic," said D. V. Duval,  a chemist, of Manchester, Eng.  "It is a well-known fact that thousands of women in all countries of the  world use the poison in" small quantities to bleach their skin. It is an  effective mean* of whitening and  clearing the complexion, but the complexion given by its use has no permanency unless the absorption of the  drug be continued.  "Arsenic, as science has long told  us, is an accumulative poison. When  one takes it either by prescription for  the upbuilding of an appetite or for  the bleaching of the skin he does not  feel any ill effects for several years.  The effect of the drug is bracing and  makes a person feel like eating. It  also aids the digestion. The average  user of the poison takes it in such  small Quantities that he does not realize how much of. it will accumulate  in his system in the course of four or  live years.  "Being an accumulative poison it  often takes that length of time to see  the results of the drug. Then the  j user may complain of not being able  to control his fi users or toes. Subsequently he loses control of his hands  and arms. Arsenical poisoning is the  result.  "Five year; ago in Manchester there  "was an epidemic of paralysis. Several thousands of persons were striken. Several hundred died and the  medical profession of England made a  thorough investigation of the malady  and traced it to beer. The investigators discovered that the brewers were  using a glucose in the brewing of  their product which was found to contain a small quantity of arsenic. This  drug, imbibed in small'quantities in  beer, had gradually accumulated iu  the bodies of thousands of persons,  had impoverished their blood and left  a great percentage of them helpless."

The mistress of the mathematical  class was inatheinatizing for her  mathematical pupils, while her mathematical pupils were inwardly inathe-  mutizing  mathematics.  "Now, suppose," said the mistress,  "I had a pound of plums���������"  At which point it occurred to her  how much better she could illustrate  hor example to her youthful charges  if she really had a pound of plums.  So   "Mary," she said to a girl of eight,  "here's sixpence. Go out nnd get  me n pound of plums. And as I'm going to give them in the end to the  girl who gets the sum right first, be  sure before*-you buy them you pinch  one or two, just to see that they arc  wholesome."  A few minutes nnd Mary had returned, approached the teacher's desk  as one worthy of commendation and  plumped down a bug of plums���������and  the sixpence.  "There, mum," she said, "I pinched  one or two, as you told ���������me, and when  tho man wasn't looking I pinched the  blessed lot."���������Tit-Bits.  Too   Expensive   to   Eat.  Mr. George Graves, who is appearing with such success on the Variety  stagei in "Koffo of Bond Street," in  London," is an enthusiatsic sportsman, and recently had a day's shooting in Norfolk. Missing his train back  he endeavored to eatch it at Cambridge by motor-car, but failed, owing  to tne bursting of a tire. In order  to appear at the theatre he was compelled to charter a special train from  the University town. Mr. Graves' remark, as he alighted from his expen-  sive conveyance at Liverpool street  and handed his man a brace of partridges, was very characteristic of him,  "Get these birds stuffed, they come  too high to eat."
