When every pool ; in Eden was a mirror
That  unto   Eve  her  dainty   c.-.nrras
proclaimed,
She went undraped without asingle fear or
Thought   that  she   had   need   to be
ashamed.
'Twas only when she'd eaten of the apple
That  she   became   inclined   to   be a
prude,
And found that evermore she'd have to
grapple
With  the much debated problem   of
the nude.
Thereafter she devoted her attention,
Her   time and all   her money to her
c'.othes.
And that was the beginning of convention
And Modesty, as well, so I suppose.
Reactions come about in fashions recent,
Now the girls conceal so little from the
m'eu
It would  seem in the name of all that's
decent.
Some   one   ought to pass the apples
'round again.
French farmers are not to be
allowed hereafter to distil alcohol

Hudson's Hope
Hudson's Hope is a settlement
ia the far north of Cariboo, which
i- brought into prominence just
j.ow by the case of Rex vs Jamie-
s-..ii. Jamieson was the pre-emptor
oi' ��. piece of land a few miles from
Huds.n's Hope. He had employed one Pin gel and his sister Eliza
beth Wilhelmina Pingel. Pingel
was engaged on the farm, while
the sister a girl of nineteen, was
retained as housekeeper. On or
about.���fehe-" 14th of September, 1915
the crime, for which the prisoner
was being tried, took place while
the brother was at the river bringing up water. Jamieson offered: to'
marry the girl at first, but the
brother would nofe hear of it.
Later, when the brother suggested
that he marry her, the accused refused but offered a sum of money
to the girl. Tbis was not accepted
by the brother who seems to have
done all the negotiating for the
sister, asmot been sufficient for her
needs. Hudson's Hope from all
evidence produced at the trial,
seems to be the last place on earth
for a woman who values honor or
respectability to migrate to. There
are only four other women in the
vicinity, all are married, and it
seems almost incredible thafe a girl
of the age of the principal witness
in this case should go into fehat
country so little fortified or protected against the evils with which
nhe would be surrounded.
An interesting witness was
known as Mrs. Gil mot, or the
"Sandbar Queen." She was a
witness for the crown and testified
as to the guilt of Jamieson. She
was taken 111 during her stay in
Clinton and the trial had to be
postponed for some time oh her behalf. She was led into tbe court
supported by a constable. Her
evidence, instead of establishing
any wrong-doing on the part of the
i.:;_... ner,  pointed to a deliberate
r.o. of blackmail on the part of the
other, and sister against him.
Jomieson was held np, as it ap-
pc-ared-. for a sum of $500 as the
price of siVnce in connection with
the scandal. Jamieson, being put
in the witness stand to testify on
his own behalf, absolutely denied
having any relations with fehe girl
whatsoever. Mr. A. D. Maclntyre,
who defended tbe accused said in
summing up,  that he believed a
The Invincible Veterans
When the nation was burying
fehe body of Mr. Lincoln afc Spring
field, a citizen touched a soldier
and said, "Sir, you are standing
in front Of me." The soldier replied, "I have been for four years."
This gave the soldier the right to
stand anywhere. Thus the right
to stand anywhere inheres in the
wornout preachers, the invincible
veterans. For God honors "tbe
arduous greatness of things
achieved," and judges by the deeds
done in the body.
A German Baron went with
Bishop Ames to see the great review of the armies iu Washington
afe fehe close of tho war. Some
soldiers came by with new uniforms. The baron said, "What
fine men!" The Army of the
Potomac came by with firm
tread. The baron said, 'Bishop,
those men can whip the world!"
Bishop Ames said, "The can."
By and by the Western army
marched by. Their ranks were
decimated and their uniforms
were tattered. They swung along
in open order. Some carried mess
kettles on their shoulders, some
bad a chicken or part of a ham
hung on their guns. On they
swung up Pennsylvania Avenue,
making all kinds of noise, imitating all kinds of animals as they
passed the grand stand. The
baron, springing up, threw his
arms around Bishop Ames, saying,
"Bishop, bishop, those men can
whip the devil."���Western Christian Advocate.
Made Strong and Well by Vinol
This letter proves there is nothing
equal to Vinol to create strength for
weak, run-down conditions.
Vestal Centre, N. Y.���"I am a farmer 74 years of age and got into a
weak, run-down condition as a result
of the Grippe. Our druggist suggested
Vinol to build me up and I noticed
an improvement soon after taking it,
and it has restored my strength so I
can now do, a good day's work. My
wife has also taken Vinol for a rundown condition with splendid results."

Timely Health Hints
Too much acid in tho diet often
leads eventually to gouty rheumatism. This means that we
should avoid the constant use of
any considerable amount of vinegar, lemon juice and decidedly acid
fruits.;.
It is true that sugar is a beat
producing food, but sugar induces
so readily the fermentation and
destruction of the starchy foods,
that it should be taken only in
small quantities.
Oatmeal or other cooked breakfast foods with cream and sugar
ferments easily; they Bhould be
avoided by those who are troubled
with gas in the stomach or bowels,
or with stomach over-acidity.
Restful sleep is impossible with
cold feet. Those that are snbject
to cold feet .should warm them
thoroughly before retiii__g, and
should put in tho foot of the bed a
jug filled with hot water. This
sort of foot warmer holds tbe beat
better than anything else.
Milk in any quantity, as a rule,
is not a good food for adults.
When milk is used it should be
taken as a lunch with but little
other food. It should never be
taken as a drink with a hearty
meal.���Dr. R. R. Daniels.
Life Insurance
A man was complaining that; he
had insured his life twenty years
before in a Mutual Benefit Company which promised all sorts of
things, and now the time was op
and be received less than he would
have done if be bad invested bis
money elsewhere. A wise Turk
who was sitting close by, said it
reminded bim of a camel belonging
to a friend of his. It was a most
intelligent brute, and tbe owner
was convinced that if be found a
really good teacher it could be
made to talk. Presently a Hadji
appeared, who said he was of the
same opinion, and would teach it,
but it would take a long time,
deliberate plot had been batched to I probably thirty years.   The own
er was delighted, and agreed to pay
the Hadji a fixed sum per annum,
and a big bonus when the animal
talked, the Hadji promising to pay
a heavy fine if he did not. A
friend afterwards went to the
Hadji and said: "What on earth
i nduced you to make that agree-
ment? You know that you can
never teach the camel to talk."
"Oh," said the Hadji, "I know
t hat, but during the thirty years
either I shall die, or the owner, or
the camel will. Anyhow, I am
all right, as I have my fixed income."��� R. W. Payne, in New
York Commercial Advertiser.

The Weekly Newspaper
The weekly newspaper produces
the interest in the town in which
it��is published to suah an extent
that it becomes impossible to place
an estimate upon its worth. There
is no enterprise that does so much
for the corporation or the individual citizen as the paper. It stands
opposed to the town knocker, the
town kicker, the town fanatic and
the town drones. It stands for
progress against stagnation. It is
every ready to conduct the schemes
of visionaries and as ready to aid
the construction plans of wise and
level headed citizens. It is for the
upbuilding of the community. The
paper has not yet come to its own,
however, because it is never appreciated to the extent of its worth
by the people at large. Yet when
battles are to be fought for town
or country a rush is made to the
newspaper office always to find the
loyal editor ready, frequently
without hope of reward. Many
other enterprises are encouraged
by a bonus, bufe rarely is a newspaper offered such help and still
more often not given the support
it is entitled to. Communities
frequently lose eight of their benefactor when they fail to recognize
the weekly journal as such. The
editor and his paper stands as bulwarks of defense against the attacks of evil or designing schemes
affecting the good of the individual
or town. For these and other
reasons the newspaper, town and
country, should receive the support
of the public at large in a very
liberal degree, for it is really the
most important business enterprise
of the community.���Chicago Tribune.
