Measures Taken   In   England  to  Exterminate the Pest.  The war against rats is lining waged vigorously in Great Britain, where  the annual damage they cause i.s  variously estimated at amounts ranging from $50,000,000 to $75,000,000.  Fotatoes infected with a tasteless  porm are placed within roach, and  this germ���������harmless to man���������is expected to cause a rapid decrease of  the rodents by spreading a fatal disease among them.' As a further step  the Society For the Destruction of  Vermin seeks to sot a price on the  animals' heads, having offered a prize  of 10 guineas and a diploma for the  best method of making ratsluns commercially useful. Taking the London  and India docks as examples of the  seriousness of the plague, it is stated  that each of tho twenty-seven sheds  stands on an acre of ground and is  estimated to harbor 2,000 rats under  it-- floors, making a total rodent population of 54,000 for these docks.

As for Jess,  she's still abed and won't see anybody."  I went iu, and when the milk and pie  had been disposed of I tuned up my  nuiso and wrote what I called "The  Shriveling Maid," as follows:  They tell me that my cheek is pale���������  That, like a lily drooping,  I now seem going to my grave  Instead of gayly whooping.  My eyes aro dim with bitter tears;  My checks are sunk and* hollow;  My weight has sadly fallen off,  And thero is more to follow.  I dream and dream of various things���������  Of frogs and toads and gators���������  I dream of cenlipeds and rats  And  vile Impersonators.

Yes, sir, when Jess copies them  verses off and sends  them  to Ilarry'  there's going to  be something doing  Ills conscience is going to cry out until  he will  come   over   hero   on  the  run."  'I don't know how fast he ran, but  next day I heard that the quarrel had  been made up and that the shriveled  maiden had ceased to shrivel.  I was driving along and feeling how  unjust It was of the postmaster general to feel jealous of my poetry when  it was doing so much good, when  Fanner Joe Smith's hired man beckoned trie from the barn.

"No. It's what thoy call unrequited  love. I'm in love with Sarah Jackson,  and if she won't hare nic it'll bo a case  of suicide for sure."  "But have you asked her?"  "Not-nof yet. I dasn't, Abe.

He was pale and trembling, nnd, his  chin sinking and seeing what a hard  case It was, I sat down aud wrote the  following, the same being Intended to  appeal to both her humorous and pathetic side:  Oh, tha roses come, and the roses bloom,  And tho roses droop and die,  And (ho sad south wind It walls around  Th.j spot whero the hollyhocks IIo.

Law Against Teeth and Hair.  "There was ,a law once against false  teeth," said tho antiquary, flushing  his superb set in a wide smile.

He took down a curious old book  to prove his statement and read the  following from a British act of Parliament of 1G70:  "That all women, of whatever aj;e,  rank, profession or degree, whether  virgins, maids or widows, that shall  from after the passing of this act impose upon, seduce and betray into  matrimony any of his majesty's male  subjects by scents, paints, cosmetics,  washes, artificial teeth, false hair,  Spanish wool, iron stays, hoops or  high heeled shoes shall incur the  penalty of the laws now in force  against witchcraft, sorcery and such  like misdemeanors, and the marriage,  upon conviction, shall stand null and  void."

Sumatra is the westernmost of the  Dutch Indian possessions and one oi  the largest islands in the world. It  is separated from Java in the south  by the strait of Stinda, memorable  for its volcanic disturbance. The  northern portion embraces the sultanate of Ache, and in the days of  Queen Elizabeth and James I., when  England sent ambassadors to its  court,  Ache  was   a   great   kingdom,  oeoupying  morp .tUao.-Kalf_lho.iolun<l.  The Achenese have never acknowledged the supremacy of the Dutch,  and over ������20,000,000* has been spent  in endeavors to subdue this race of  warriors. South of Ache is a large  district occupied by tlie Battaks, a  tribe that has practiced cannibalism  for centuries. -  St. Vitus' dance is n. disease of the  nerves brought on by a morbid condition of the blood.   It is a common  disease with children and attacks, females oftencr than males.    Tho only  cure lies in plenty of pure blood, because good blood is the life food of  the nerves.   Dr.' Williams' Pink Pills  cure even  tho most severe forms of  this trouble  because they enrich the  blood supply, thus carrying the necessary food to the nerves.   In proof-of  tin's' we have the statement of Mrs/  Alex.-Cameron,   Summerside,   I'.E.l.,  who   says:���������"Some    years    ago    my  daughter  Lena,   then  a  child  of  ten  years, became adlielcd with St. Vitus  dunce.    At that time she was attending school and the first indication I  had that something was wrong,  wa:-t  that she appeared easily discourage I  in her studies.    She was naturally a  spirited child, not given to tears, bus  she would   cry  over what  T  thought  should   be  easy   work   for  her.    The  disease progressed so rapidly that in  the course of a few weeks   sho   -became unable to hold anything in her  I lands,  and we were obliged  to take  her out of school.   She became so afflicted that she could not hold a cup  to her  lips  without  suddenly  losing  hold of it.    T knew from tlie first by  the symptoms that her  ailment was  St. Vitus dance, and despaired of sco-  ine her cured, ns it was looked on as  such a. hopeless ailment.   She became  so bad that she could not hold herself  still   for  the  space  of    ten  seconds.  Her  hands  or  feet were  continually  moving and last of all she would contort her features so that she was losing her natural  expression.    At this  ] stage T chanced on a paper containing  a testimonial in favor of Dr. Williams'  Pink Pills,  describing the cure of a  little  girl   afflicted   as   mine  was.    T  hastened to pet a couple of boxes of  the Pills,  nnd  by tho time she had  used them T noticed a decided change  for the bettor, nnd purchased a  further supplv.   By the time she had taken seven boxes she was entirely cured.    Although she seemed thoroughlv  cured T was afraid the disease might  return  again,  but it never did,  and  i sho  has   since   cnioyed   the   best   of  health.

"lie  shook with merriment at the banker's  wit.

While   the  application  of  concrete  in   the   manufacture   of   tombstones  seems   rather  a  gruesome  one,  say-*  Cement Age, still the ancients associated tho tomb with the highest artistic impulse.    The manufacture of  concrete   tombstones  is   rapidly   becoming an important industry in  itself, so great is tho economy of concrete.    The   results   already   accomplished  suggest the   possibilities   of  the  future.    With   concrete   as   thi  structural material there is no limit  to    the   opportunity   of    tho    artist.

Molderlug away ou tho wall of ue  old monastery In Milan, Italy, hangs  the famous "Last Supper" of Leonardo  da Vlucl. Like every masterpiece, .the  painting required mauy years of pa-  llcut labor, and as a result of that  labor it is perfect in its naturalness  of expression and sublime lu its story  of* love. Iu addition to these qualities,' ''t  It has an incident' In its history that  contributes not a little toward making  It the great teacher that it Is.  It is said that the artist, in painting  the faces of the apostles, studied tho  countenances of good meu whom he  knew. < When, however, he was ready  to paint the face of Jesus in the picture ho could find none that would  satisfy his conception.' The face that  would serve as a model for the face of  Christ must be dignified iu its simplicity and majestic iu its sweetness.  After several years of, careful search  the painter ' happened to meet, one,  Pietro Bandinelli, a choir boy of exquisite voice, belonging to the cathedral. Being struck jby the beautiful  features aud tender manner that-bespoke an angelic soul, tho artist Induced tho boy to be the study for the  painting of the face of Jesus.  All was done most, carefully and  reverently, but the picture was as yet  incomplete, for the face of Judas was  absent. Again the painter, with the ,  zeal of a true lover of his art, sot about  in search of a countenance that might  serve for the face of tho traitor, Some  years passed before his search was rewarded and the picture finally completed. As tho artist was about to dismiss tho miserable and degraded  wretch,who had been his awful choico  tho man looked up at him anil said,  "You hare painted me before." Horrified and dumb with amazement, the  painter learned that the man was Pietro Bandinelli. During those intervening years I'ictro had been at Home  studying music, had met with evil  companions, had given himself up lo  drinking and gambling, had fallen into  shameful dissipation and crime. Tho  face that now was the model for the  face of Judas had once been the model  for   the   faco  of   Christ.

Have you ever had a woman tell you  that-she would uot say "Please" and  "Thank you" to servants?    They are  such short little words tliut any child  can utter them; but.* truth to tell, children of the present day are not taught  to use them when addressing servants.  A little politeness goes a long way and  helps  to lubricate  the  wheels of domestic  affairs   fully   as   much   as  oil  applied to machinery.    There Is  frequently as much  friction in  the one  case as in the other.   Then why not apply the same method?   Politeness and  tact should'go hand in hand.   An order given'with a .smile and "Please"  will, in all probability, be better carried out and   more  quickly  executed  for the little word, ,and if a "Thank  you" is added when the service is finished   what' harm   can   possibly ' be  done?    There  is.certainly nothing to  lose by cultivating good  manners-lf  you have uot them already.    In fact,  the gain Is on the side of the well bred  woman who requites each, little service with a "Thank you."   "Good manners are a  greater factor In success  than mental ability." said a savant. ' It  Is  undoubtedly   a   well  acknowledged  fact that bewitching manners go far  to secure a person social success.   The  inference, naturally, Is that good manners nre an inheritance that tho possessor/was raised In a refined and cultivated (atmosphere���������In   other   words,  was "to the manner born."   Beauty is  n divine girt and wins favor readily,  hut   beauly   without   good   breeding  soon  fails to satisfy.' and  the person  Is apl to be looked upon as one whose  birth was not all that it should have  been.   The old saying, "Beauty is but  skin-deep," should be a warning to the  fortunate possessor, who  relies  solely  on its charm.  It fades all too soon, and  unless there are other staying qualities the disappointment will be great  when   the   .inevitable   change   takes  place.    Each one influences some one  else.    Our  milliners and  sayings  are  Imitated more than we are aware. -So  it  behooves each   person   to be  very  careful of word and act,* for surely our  manners are reflected in those around  us.       <  CHAPEL ROYAL STORIES  uHURCH   HAS   BEEN   SCENE   OF  INTERESTING'EVENTS..

A Chinese Accessory That Made  the Mischief.  A girl whose loi.g pongee coat has  been the admiration of her friends all  this season is seriously considering  never wearing it again. Thero is no  question as to the style and art of the  wrap, a long, flowing affair with fascinating plaits and big sleeves that float  In the smallest sum me:- breeze. Its  decoration is a triumph, for the girl  hied herself to Chinatown and bought  embroideries to use as insets and panels, one of the most fascinating being  a black silk band not more than two  inches wide. Its length is about two  yards, and it is almost solidly covered  with embroidery in old blues. At each  end Is a long black tassel. This band,  you see. has been put around tho low  nock, so that the two ends fall free al-  niost to the bottom of the coat  So "far so good,  but one day'while  wearing tho clonk she carried her husband's collars to a  Chinese laundry.  Being by no means a dull  person, it  took her but a moment to see that all  laundry operations censed as soon' as  she entered aud that she had become  an object of unqualified interest    Almost simultaneously it dawned on her  why.  It was her Chinese embroideries.  To the man waiting ou her she said,  pointing to her coat trimmings:  "You recognize them?"  "Les, les," quoth  he of the pigtail.  "Chinaman hold up trousers with that,"  and he pointed to the beautiful long  narrow black embroidered band. -  Ihe Chapel Royal, St. James's Palace,*- where. Miss Keid, daughter of  tne American Ambassador, was married to the Hon. John Ward, Lord  Dudley s brother, and equen'j to the  King, is little known to the vast'majority of Londoners.  Visitors to the-metropolis who make  a   point   of  seeing   all   the   historic  buildings  to which  they  can  obtain  access   says The London Daily Mail,  well  know   the   unostentatious   position of the chapel, which is entered  from what is called the Color Court  of tho Palace.   But to how many'ordinary   Londoners   who   wend   their  way through the courts of the palace,  past   the   sentries   who   keep   watch  and guard  beneath the Henry VIII  gateway, as a near cut from .Pall Mall  to Bclgravia, does the large'window  to the right of the-poxtal m<-an more  than a mere window?-  Yet inside the edifice lighted by-it  kings and princes have been married and havo worshipped for hundreds of years and many" babies of  high degree havo boon baptized. It  was in that chapel that King Charles  I. attended service before 'walking  through the park to the headsman's  block in Whitehall.  It is a mark of great honor to receive permission froin the King to be  wedded in the Chapel Royal, which  is one of the "peculiar" and "cxtra-  -paroclnal places of worship in the  realm, and not often is the little edifice used.-for the celebration of- the  nuptials of a subject. Queen' Victoria  and Prince Albert were married in  the Chapel Royal, St. James's, and  their daughter, the Princess' Royal  v-as wedded there to the Crown Prince  ot Irussia, afterward the Emperor  I'redenck. The present Prince and  .Irincess of Wales were also married  within the small precincts.

In  British  Columbia   the   Indiana  ceremoniously went to meet the first  salmon and in flattering voices "tried  to win their favor by  calling them  all chiefs.  Every   spring   in   California   the  Karaks   used   to   dance   for  salmon.  Meanwhile one of1 their number se-'  eluded himself in the mountains and  fasted for ten days.   Upon his return  he   solemnly   approached ;the "river,  took  the  first* salmon of the <catch,  ate some of 'it and with the remainder   lighted   a   sacrificial   in e. "The  same Indians laboriously climbed to  the mountain .top" after the poles for  the spearing, booth,  being convinced  that if they were gathered where the  salmon were watering no fish would  be caught.  Very  widespread,   in  fact,  is   this  native belief,-pf the necessity'of caution   whenever  Adam - is   on   fishing  bent. ..... ' *  In Japan among the primitive race  of the Ainos even 'the women left at  home are not allowed to talk, lest  "the fish may hear and disapprove,  while the first fish is. always brought  in through a window instead of a-  door s'o the other fish may not see."  ; The "-Eskimo women of Alaska  ��������� never sew while the men are fishing,  and should any mending be imperative they do it shut up in little tents  out of sight of the sea.  Under no circumstance on the  northeast coast of Scotland will a  fisherman at sea mention certain objects on land, such as "minister,"  "kirk," "swine," "dog," etc., and  the line will surely bo lost if a pig  is seen while baiting it. As on the  land chickens must not be counted  until they are hatched, .so at sea  fish must not.be counted until they  arc caught. It is good luck *to find  mice nibbling among the 'nets.

Charles II. ordered for the chapel  through Lord Sandwich, "Master of  our Great Wardrobe,"- the following  aticles connected doubtless with the  .upholstery and lmating arrangements  of tho sacred edifice, as well as with  the services:  "Item���������two bare hydes of oxe leather.  "Item���������three thousand of tenter-  hookes, three hamers, one fire shovel,  one pare of tongs, three black jacks,  tb-ce gispens, two brushes, one perfuming nan of iron, six hourc glasses,  and a pain*, of strong iron andirons;  and that you content and pay for  m.iking the premises."  fn explanation of these curious appliances it may bs added that black  jacks were large mugs made of leath-  ci, used in those days for the serving  ol small beer, and that a gispen was  .a  small   pot  or  cup,  also  made  of  iCiither.    The perfuming pan of iron  would  be used for the incense burnt  upon special occasions in the Chapel  Koyal. and the hour glasses probably  to rc-latc the length of the sermons.  T>*.    .n days of long sermons George  III., who was a regular attendant at  the services, used to bo left alone at  the conclusion of them, according to  an  old  story, with  his equerry and  tho parson "to freeze it out together,"  the Queen nnd the royal family having dropped out one by ono from tho  chapel.

I'm awfully sorry, Mrs. Wvekoff,"  she sa:d to-her guest at breakfast  time, "but something happened to  my oolong last night, and I've nothing to offer you to take its. place but  ���������cat-nap tea. You'd rather have  coffee than that, I'm sure."  The guest preferred the coffee, and  the story never leaked out until Aunt  Hepzibah told it herself.  AUSTRALIA OFFERS TROOPS.  -Crack  For  The   Marvellous  Lusitaniav  The Cunard liner Lusitania has  made a sensational run across the  Atlantic.  The big turbiner not only lowered  ������ul records for the trans-Atlantic voyage by nearly four hours, but she  also broke  three^other records.  She made the passage in four days  and 15 hours.   The best previous record,  mado  by her on Nov. 8 last  was   four   days,    18   hours  and  40  minutes.   -  On the whole trip of 2,781 miles  the Lusitania made an average speed  of 25.05 knots an hour, a new record,  the previous one being 25.01, made  by her on her record trip last November.  The third record broken is -that for  tho greatest clay's run���������650 knots up  to noon on fhe 17 of August, in which  run she also set a now pace in steaming an average of 25.66 knots for tho  24 hours.

A spirited controversy in New Zealand centres round an old stone anchor which has just been deposited  in the Wellington Museum.   It is alleged on the ono hand that it belonged to Kupe, the famous Maori Columbus of-the  South   Seas,   who   navigating his great canoes from the mysterious  Hawaiki,   was   the  first  discoverer of New Zealand.   On the other  hand,   it   is   contended   that   the  anchor* could not have been Kupe's  because  it was  found   at. Paremata!  whereas Kupe landed-'at Pallisef Bay  and must have left it on the shore  there when ho hauled his canoes up  to   the  Table-lands,   near  Maryborough, and there turned them upside  down.    They   remain   there   to  this  day; or, at any rate, there are three  mounds   there    which    may   be   the  canoes covered by drifting earth and  sand, and among the Maoris the place  is still called Nga-Waka-a-Kupe���������the  Canoes of Kupe.    *-  Minard's  Liniment Cures  Dandruff."

Kitchener  desjrod to lay out a beautiful garden  for_ the  benefit of  the  distinguished  visitor,  and hundreds of rare plants  and exotics were brought for the purpose.  Then it was suddenly discovered that, there was no grass with which  to plant tho lawn, and there was no  time to send elsewhere to procure it.  "Sow mustard and cress seed." said  Kitchener; "that will come up in a  ���������day or two."

The  hypnotic influence of  Laurier and  the church upon  the  pea-soupers,  the appeal  to  tlie avarice  of the  fish-eaters,   and  the general  stupidity  of  the   Kubes   in   Ontario  enabled  the  Grits to   once  mo up.  stake the Dominion for the  benefit  of themselves  and   foreign capitalists.

ThoMontreal Witness (Liberal)  referring to Premierr- Roblin's  charges regarding the Crow's Nest  scandal, says editorially : .  " It is known to all men that  the Globe, at the time referred to,  blossomed out with a broadside  demanding the subsidies in question.  " It was known that the principal promoters of the Crow's Nest  deal were supporters of the Laurier  government. It was understood  that the same meu financial I y controlled the Globe. The.principal  of them was president of the Globe  com pan}*.  " No one could question that the  Globe was injured in standing and  reputatiou by the barefaced raid,  which bore no resemblance to  newspaper advocacy of" public interest, and w..s simply the pushing  of a- private interest. That that  raid did anything to turn public  opinion in favor of the deal we  cannot imagine. With such an intelligent and high-minded"public  as the Globe addresses it-self to,  the effect must have been' precisely  the opposite, and must have greatly  weakened the allegiance of many  to the party which the Globe supported."
