In this community there are
some cherries and throughout
the country the crop is good.
Common red cherries- are on the
market. These are the regular
pie cherries out of which, with
granulated sugar, delicious pies
can be made, pies that are worthy
successors of the marvels our
grandmothers used to produce
out of black Tartarians and
scraped maple sugar. After a
good dinner finished with a nice
helping from' one of grandmother's pies, many acradler-has
cut two acres of big fall wheat-in
the five hours that elapse before
tab supper meal. But red cherries
and common granulated are a
good substitute, and tbe burdens
of the world sit lightly on the
shoulders of farmers while the
cherry season lasts.

\Vhy and Wneref or of Prokititory Laws
Unquestionably tliere is a considerable degree of restiveness ainong people over the enactment and subsequent enforcement of prohibitory laws of
one kind and another. While this feeling of resentment finds expression
most vigorously in connection with prohibitory liquor laws, there is an undercurrent of feeling in relation to other matters as well. But do the people
who*so vigorously object lo these repressive laws over stop lo ask themselves
to wh.it extent they are Ihenfsclves responsible for their enactment?
Prohibitory laws are always the result of excessive over-indulgence, a
lack of self-control, or solf-donial. This slatement holds true not only in
lvganl to lii-uor leglslalion, but in regard to practically all laws of a sumptuous character. For example, the laws passed prohibiting the killing of
.beaver in Canada .were rendered necessary because sonic hunters and trappers
would not deny themselves the pleasure or profit: to be derived from lulling
these industrious little workers. Close seasons for duck, prairie chickens,
and all kinds of game had to be established and are enforced for the same
reason.
l.very year thc newspapers of this country are filled with reports of the
destruction of millions of dollars worth of valuable forests, and in the vast
majority of cases these destructive fires are thc result of the carelessness
arising out of the lack of a little self-denial on the part of someone who would
not. take the time or go to the trouble of properly protecting a campfire, or
who started a lire for fun under conditions of wind or in such close proximity
to bush as to invite a conflagration. Some people, too, have a mania i'or
stripping the bark off of birch trees,' or otherwise defacing public property
which necessitates th'e enforcement of prohibitory regulations applicable to
everybody.
One or two farmers in a given community will not exercise the self-denial,
or take the precautions necessary, to keep theirland free from noxious weeds,
with the result that thc whole district is threatened and suffers loss. The
inevitable result is the passage of laws to compel everybody to destroy weeds.
"Keep off tho grass" signs in city parks always cause a feeling of Indignation because it is felt that these grassy spaces should be for the special
use of children on liot summer days. Why, then, aro such signs displayed?
Because- people will be selfish. The temperate use of city park spaces would
give them and everybody else real pleasure, but tliere are those who will persist in making beaten tracks across these lawns with the result that everybody is prohibited from walking on (hc grass.
Some people go fishing and haul in everything they can, big and little,
and keep it up regardless of their requirements for seasonable food, with the
result that lakes and streams five fished out. If such'people alone wero the
sufferers from such wholesale destruction they might well bc allowed to suffer.
the penalty of tlicir folly and lack of self-control. Hut everybody suffers,
and so it becomes necessary every now and then to prohibit fishing altogether
in such lakes and streams for a lew years in order that tlie stock of iish
may be replenished. . .
Sundav observance laws are passed so strict in character as to malce that
day one which thousands of people loathe, instead of hailing Its coming as a j
day of joy and gladness. In some respects our Canadian Sunday observance,
laws aro like tlie blue laws of Puritan New England. Yet these laws have
been enacted in order io prevent Sunday becoming even less restful and
sacred than the other six days of the week.
. It was not the moderate drinker, the man who really enjoyed a glass of
beer as a beverage, who brought about Prohibition. Such a man was 7iot a
menace to the whole community. It'was the man who drank to excess and
in his drunken state was worse than a beast, or an Insane man, ill-treating
ills i'amilv, and disturbing the peace of all, who caused such a revulsion of.   ,   ��� ,,,,,���

Pollen of Fruit Tinges Whole Country (

- A curious Alpine phenomenon is reported in different" parts of the Canton of Vaud. When a strong wind
ceased tlie -whole country assumed a
yeJlc-w hue. Tlie Kent Vaulion, -1,880
f V high, looked like a golden dome,
nnd the forests seemed on fire, while
Lake Joux! resembled a sea of champagne. The yellow was caused by
large masses of pollen from fruit
trees, which was blown across the
mountains and deposited when the
wind dropped. The peasants call it
"golden rain."

CHOLERA INFANTUM
Cholera infantum is one of the fatal
ailments of childhood. It is a trouble
that' comes on suddenly, especially
during the summer months and unless
prompt action is taken the little one
may soon x be beyond aid. Baby's
Own Tablets are an ideal medicine in
warding off this trouble. They regulate the bowels and sweeten ihe stomach and thus prevent'the dreaded
summer complaints. They are im absolute safe, medicine, being guaranteed to.contain neither opiates nor
narcotics or other harmful drugs.
Thcy cannot possibly do harm���they
always do good. The Tablets���are
sold ..by medicine dealers or by mail
at 25 cents a box from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.
TO.THE LITTLE te&* THIS FROCK IS SURE TO

Mothers sometimes find it difficult to please the little miss when selecting clothing for their wardrobe. " They feel quite grown-up. at that age and
their tastes usually run to modes that "add* materially to their years. Mother,
of course,, insists on something useful. Here is a suggestion for an afternoon frock which is bound to be classed~"as adorable.by tlie most particular

which afford an attractive note of contrast. Very- novel is the leather girdle,

How Vaccination Was Discovered
THE FIRST RETURN FROM EXILE
I: The Return From Captivity. Predicted (29:10-14).
It seems that false prophets were
flourishing in Babylon telling the people that they would speedily be restored to their own land. To counteract this ���- the Lord moved Jeremiah
to send this letter to the captives in
Babylon (vv. 8, 9). In t'his^ letter he
advised them to settle down and
quietly pursue their regular callings
of'life and not to be led astray by ^the
false prophets (vv. 6, 7).
1. The length of tlie captivity (v.
10). Their coining back was to be
"after seventy years." From^Daniel
9:2 it is clear that seventy years
means a definite time. It dates from
the time when the first company was
taken captive among which Dauiel
was found. ~
2. Recovered .by God (vv. 10-14).
God's purpose in the captivity was
to cure them of. their idolatrous practices. He assured them that when
His purpose was accomplished he
would visit them and convince thcm.|
of His good puflioso toward them.
When once this was done they would
call upon Him in sincerity nnd He
would be found of them. Their captivity He would turn away; gather
them from all the nation's and bring
them into their own land.
II.    Prediction    of Captivity Fulfilled
Ezra 1:1-11).
1. The-proclamation of Cyrus (vv.
1-4). (1) This, was not by.accident,
bu.t tliat the word of the Lord might
be 'fulfilled (v. 1). What God has
promised He will do; He never forgets. Wherever we find a promise
which He hath made we can rest
upon it; He will make good. (2) By
divine initiation (v. 1). "The Lord
stirred up the spirit of Cyrus." How
this was done we do~"not'know, Possibly Danief-brought to his attention
the prophecy of Isaiah and-Jeremiah
(Isa. 55:2S; Jer. 25:12). Every impulse to do good in all men is-caused
by "the-Lord���even a' heathen king
who may not have'be.cn conscious of
doing. His will, at God's -appointed
time took the initiative In thismatter.
It may havo been that Cyrus only saw
his own'action as a piece of statecraft
���the creation of a buffer state nation
between his kingdom and that, of
Egypt. Be that as it~may, God stirred him up to do His will. (3) The
content of His proclamation (vv. 2-1).
(a) "The Lord God of heaven hath
charged me to build Him a house in
Jerusalem" (v. 2). This makes clear
that he had some impression of God's
hand upon him. (b) Appeal to Jewish patriotism (v. 3). ' He invokes
God's bleslsng upon such as possess
the national religious feeling, and
commands them to go. and build the
house of the Lord God. (c) Lend assistance (v. 4). Many of the -Jews
were established in business and
therefore were not free to go. Many,
no doubt, had lost their national sphit
and therefore were not anxious to go.
All such were to-lend friendly assistance" in silver, gold and beasts.
Those who cannot go to do God's work
should ..strengthen the hands of those
who do go. "
2. The response of Cyrus' proclamation (vv. 5, 6). The chief of the
fathers of Judah and Benjamin and
the priests and Levltes presented
themselves as willing and ready to go.
The c6mpany - which returned was
largely made up of representatives of
Judah and Benjamin.
3. The royal favor (vv. 7-11). Cyrus
brought forth the vessels of the house
pf__the_ Lord___which _Nebuchadnezzar
had brought fortli out of Jerusalem
and put into^the house of his gods.
This wiis a great encouragement to
every loyal Jew whose heart had been
grieved over the profanation of these
sacred vessels. Now.to have 5,400
of these vesesls returned to their owners and sent back to Jerusalem to he
put to their original use, met a hearty
response by the Jews.

iDaEgersy* Cargoes
Sailors Dislike to Saii With a Cargo of
Sugar or Coffee
At first thought it would seem that
dynamite was a cargo to be carefully
"avoided, but from iv sailor's point of
view ' there are Vfar, more dangerous
cargoes. Ho Vdreftds, for instance, a
cargo "oOugarS'I ; Put hundreds of
tons: of cane sugar in casks in the
hold of a vessel and let the ship steam
through a spell of; hot weather. The
odor is sickening.-.. The. sailors cannot get the swc(*t; taste out of their
mouths and. crave vinegar or lime
juice���anything sour. - They lose
their appetites and are always glad
when 'a voyage on which the cargo'
was sugar is over.- Coffee is as disagreeable as sugar, in addition being
very dangerous. .       ".-���*���
Cotton is a really dangerous cargo.
If alill.le oil happens' to touch raw
cotton.tlie .result Is spontaneous combustion. A single bale of cotton saturated with such an oil as boiled linseed and lying at thc bottom of a hold
,can be compared only 'to a slow
hfatch attached'tona bomb.
Acids and other chemicals form
dangerous cargoes. Carbide of cal-
ciu.ni, for example. Acetylene gas
is huide"'from lids chemical and the
gas Is constantly given off if the product is exposed to air.
Shipmasters dislike to carry drums
of acid where they can, be reached
easily, A Chilean shi^ recently put
in at the Falkland- Islands leaking
badly. Her cargo was made un of.
drums of acid and' chalk. The acid
liad leaked from the drums and mix-
7.ed with thc_.chalk, forming carbonic
acid gas in tlie hold. This gas is
deadly and the-crew could not mako
repairs. ''Meantime, the acid had
gathered in ""Tlio bottom of the ship
j and liad eaten away the iron frames
there.

Dublin's
Fine Buildings
Destroyed
Post'Offioe Ranked With Four Courts
As Beauty Spot  , .
Dublin is the subject of so many
tales of fighting and destruction that
its natural beauty in architecture
and environs is apt to be overlooked.
The loss the city sustains by the recurring strife is" one of the' sorrowful
features of the whole trouble. Tho
post office, which was destroyed in
the Easter rebellion of 1916, ranked
with the Four Courts, now the scene
of siege and battle, as a beauty spot
within Hie city's boundaries. Tho
Four Courts was erected late in the'
eighteenth century, and with its striking' dome and columns has been one
of the city's architectural gems. "With,
in the four facades was a quadrangle
in wliieh Important assemblies were
held. ���
Thackeray said in Ks "Irish Sketch
Book" that it was curious bow some
of the streets of Dublin so suddenly
ended in potato fields, but that .was
long ago, and houses now cover the
former fields, for the,city has made
rapid growth ia the past half-century.
The natural charm of the River Lif-
fey has excited admiration for centuries, though close contact was not
so pleasant as the anticipation until
the recent drainage improvements
wero made. Around the shores of
Dublin Bay there is great natural
beauty, made more impressive by the
profusion of wild flowers, which are
said to flourish better-from the moist
climate and the, tempered sunlight of
the region. Heath, or heather, covers tlie hills and Invites the rambles

determined that with a century of use

a form that gave them a considerable
contact surface to begin with. The
result was all tliat lie had hoped. A
month of llvciy ringing Is still needed
to give any given bell a tone of the desired-quality, but tho economy In time'

Persian Weave'rs Make Priceless Rugs
In Underground Room .
Tlie .wonderful,, almost priceless,
rugs of Persia are made with the
crudest of machines today as they
-were centuries ago.
The warp is stretched on a loom,
which is merely a frame. The wool
consists of short' threads woven and,
knitted by hand without the aid of
any shuttle.. When a row is finished,
it Is tightly pressed to the rest ofthe
web by means of a comb Inserted into
the warp.
As Jie works; the weaver does not
see the^pattern, for the reason that he
sits with the reverse side of the web
toward-him. The looms are generally kept In an , underground vaulted
room, often with water running
through the centre. The number of
workers at a loom varies according to
the size of the carpet or rug to be
made. Sometimes the workers consist of one man and two children, and
occasionally the owner uses boys and
girts only i'or the weaving, one man
acting as overseer to the children.
The overseer holds In his hands a
paper from which he reads instructions something as follows:
"To No; 1, three blue threads, one
white, two green; No. 2, four yellow,
one white," and so on, each child repeating after the_ove"rseer tlielnsTruc^
Mori's given. As it is ail uttered In a
high-pitched monotone, the result is
confusing, not to say deafening to the
foreigner, but there the little weavers
sit,-day in, day out, week after week,
in the gloomy cellar, kept hard at it
by the unrelenting overseer.
Woman Founded Successful Firm
���,'���_'' ���������' i
Business Started In 1870 Now Has 100
Branches
One of the romances of business in
London Avas ended by \he burial at
Putney Vale Cemetery af Mrs. Greig,
the.founder of the famous provision
firm of David Greig.
Mrs. Greig,' who. was 85, left her
native town, Montrose, in Scotland,
in 1870, and came to London to seek"
her fortune. She opened a small provision shop in High Street, Jlornsey,
and the business flourished so well
that it was not long before branches
were opened.    ,
. David Greig, .who had assisted his
mother, went to Brixton in 1899 ^and
started a branch. That branch became the headquarters" of the firm,
whichjhas now 100 stores in all part3
of London, and. is one of the largest
and most reputable trading concerns
in its ldnd of business" in the south
of England.
Mrs. Greig continued to direct the
business up to 30 years ago, when she
retired. She, howeverj took great
interest in the firm's affair up to the
time of her death.
Her remarkable energy and capability became almost proverbial in Hie
provision trade, and she furnished one
of tiie most notable examples of woman's success in business in London.

If a girl cooks (or a family at

and clothes, it is romance.
What is Courtesy? It is the myrrh and rosemary
which keeps society sweet. It is the crown which makes
a monarch of every human being possessing it This
monarch may be a day laborer, a child, a woman or a boy,
if he but have tranquility and self-poise, a good heart,
and a fair understanding, It is a convention, it demands
conventional manners. There is in it much that is excellent and necessary. It is like the Constitution of the
British Empire, holding many different laws and many
conditions of men peacefully together.
We are all encumbered with our personality; wc exaggerate, we talk too much; we have prejudices; therefore
we have a constant need of courtesy. Tolerance for the
opinions of others is the first requirement of the courteous
spirit. We must be courteous to every ism which others
may believe in though we do uot ourselves; for^we 'must
remember that to those who hold these beliefs, we are as
much outside the pale as they may be to us, We must
have courtesy towards all men's thoughts.
A courteous manner often pleases more than wit or
brilliancy,, Emerson says tliat Fashion is good sense
entertaining compairy. In the first place we obtain-command over our own natures, we control our severity of
judgment. We aim at seeing virtues rather than defects;
we may perhaps affect a cordiality which/we do not feel,
but which makes us more agreeable than we ordinarily
are. A world without courtesy is a disorganized thing.
A child cannot be too early trained in courteus manners,
All the elements of polite behavior should begin- earry.
Good table manners are most important, and caiinot begin
too early. There is a very old proverb that ''Courtesy
costs nothing," but it is a lifelong study to obtain a
courteous manner, To meet a person" who has it is a
cordial exhilaration.

curiosity of her owner. He investigated.
In the nest just vacated he found
a tremendous large egg, and of
rare conformation. It was not
oblong; rather was it semi-equare,
with little bumpy abrasions here
and there. .
This morning, after it had been
blown and partially opened at the
smaller end, Mr: McLaine presented it to The Province' as something
now in freak eggs.
Inside the large shell is a perfectly normal egg of the ordinary
Bhape.
The larger shell, besides containing the second egg, originally
held the usual white and yolk of
its leas pretentious prototypes.
In recent years' many freak eggs
have found their way to the Province editorial rooms.---Mr." Mc-
Laine's contribution easily takes
first honors.
The excitement created . over its
arrival seems perfectly justified.���

To Eastern Points
After reading the long list of
bathing suit regulations in some of
our cities, we don't wonder thatj
the kids sneak to the old iwimmin'
hole. 	
When we are entirely civilized,
history will devote one page to the
victorious general and three to the
hero who clouts a homer with the
bases full.
Never argue about religion. If
you get the beat of it, the other
fellow has the consolation that you
are going straight to hell because
yoa don't agree_with him.
In a small town everybody feels
. privileged to stop and kiss a baby
that is out for an' airing.   In a
- city that person would probably be
, arrested for an attempt to kidnap
the kid.   ' -    .    - -.
Thobe -who talk the most and
impute the worst motives to others
are usually expert in" covering
their own tracks. . Such need close
watching themselves���if we care to
know just who is who and what is
what.- . -
