Dogs and Little Children
Look at a dog that has a good
home, and especially one thafe is
the friend and playmate of children.
See how proudly he carries his
head, how his plumy tail waves
like a banner, how eagerly he joins
in their games!
He brings back the ball they
have thrown; plunges into the
water and swims after sticks, or
toy ships that have broken cable
and drifted beyond reach of their
owners.
If there are little children, see
bow watchful and tender he is;
gentle as a lamb and ready to pnt
himself between them and any real
or fancied danger.

Skye terrier of Edinburgh who

Trench Owls
The following extract is from a
letter from an English officer at
the fronfe, quoted in the London
Times: '^When X was up iu fehe
trenches recently I saw numerous
owls. They used feo flap about
among the trenches at night, quite
regardless of shells and suipers,
getting a fine harvest of rats and
mice, with which Jthe trenches literally swarm. They were the big
brown owls. The}' always disappear two hours before dawn. I
never could make out where to,
but I suppose to woods behind tlie
lines."

It is just 40 years Bince Custer
and his soldiers met the Indiahe
on the Little Big Horn in Montana,
and were completely wiped out,
not one living to tell the tale.
The first news of this disaster, was
given to the world by a man
now Jiving in Greenwood. Custer
was called Yellow Hair by the
Indisiis.' He was a noted fighter,
but too rash to command soldiers
waning with redskins.
Many people ventilate their
rooms and neglect to ventilate
themselves. What I mean by self-
ventilation is breathing in fresh
air, pure thoughts, and doing uplifting actions.
Sitting all days within doors is
unhealthy. Each person to be
healthful and beautiful must get
out into the open and walk. Even
sitting in a carriage or motor and
riding for hours in the air is far
better than remaining in doors���
but it is far more healthful to
walk.
Our feet and legs were given us
to use, not only for going from
room to room, but for getting from
place to place, for stirring up our
blood and making us active.
Ventilate your body by walking.
A great German physician told me
that people should walk around
their rooms when alone absolutely
nnde for half an hour each day.
He advises mothers to put absolutely no night clothes upon their
babies.
His theory is that they get better ventilation of the bodies by
sleeping absolutely nude, under
light but warm bed clothes.
This theory is in absolute practice in hundreds of cases with
wonderful results of rosy cheeks
and healthy bodies.
Ventilate your minds. Open
tho windows of your thoughts,
drive out all jealousies, envy, and
revenge. They are the impure
microbes which destroy your pnre
thoughts of generosity, liberality,
and gratitude.
Fill your brain cells full of
fresh thoughts, of honest impulse.
Crowd out fear of disease, anger,
resentment, with fresh thoughts of
love, charity and faith.
You will by ventilating yonr
mind find that you are cleansed
and refreshed and ready to absorb
fresh thoughts and store them in
clean brain cells.
Remember: Resentment and fear
are the most dangerous microbes
that clog the brain.���Lillian Russell. 	
"Fellow dropped into the oflice
the other day and ordered the
paper, and we were pleased. Said
it was a good paper, and we were
glad. Said it was more than
worth the money to any man of
intelligence, and we were tickled.
Said it was the mainstay of the
town, and were supertickled. Said
it was the greatest booster and the
most reliiable townbuilder and developer in the whole community,

his paper, and���we slid gently to

limit."���Ex.
An elderly lady on her first railway trip noticed the communication cord overhead, and was told
by a mischievous boy that it was
to ring when she wanted anything
to eat. Shortly afterwards the old
lady reached up with her umbrella
and gave it a vigorous pull. The
whistle sounded, the breaks wen
put together sharply in tbedriver'f-
efforts to stop. Presently the Con
came rushing   along   and   asked:
"Who pulled the cord?" "I did,"
replied the old lady meekly."
"Well, what do you want?" snapped the official impatiently. "You
may bring me some ham sandwiches and a cup of tea if you will.
It is not recorded what the Con
said or did and a veil is drawn
over the boy.

it is better for the war to continue
until the nations are humbled, and
come to Jesus in dead earnest. He
believes that the non-observance
of the principles of Christianity is
really the cause of the great war.
If alt nations followed these principles it is sure thafe war wonld

Float
Float is not a periodical.
It is a book containing 86
illustrations all told, and
is filled with sketches and
stories of western life. It
tells how a gambler cashed
in after the flush days of
Sandon ; how it rained in
New Denver long after
Noah was dead; how a
parson took a drink at
Bear Lake in early days ;
how InsM-ie was dealt in
Kaslo in '93; how the
saloon man outprayed the
women in Kalamazoo, and
graphically depicts the
roamings of a western
editor among the tender-
feet in the cent belt. It
contains the early history
of Nelson and a romance
of the Silver King mine.
In it are printed three
western poems, and dozens of articles too numerous to mention. Send for
one before it is too late.
The price is 25 cents,
postpaid to any part of the
world. Address all let-
;; ters to
