Rev. Alex. Dunn is returning  to Canada owing to ill health.  He will return by' way of Vancouver.  The new Sanitarium hotel at  the sulphur springs near Blairmore will be open for business in  a couple of weeks,  There are now* eight C. P.

A new business block is to be  erected, the depot offices are to  be enlarged and dwelling houses  are at a premium.  Stamp collecting rapidly is  coming into vogue again. And  all because the public has ascertained that it for years has been  one of King George's hobbies.  J. F. Armstrong, government  agent at Cranbrook, is taking a  two weeks' vacation in. and  around Golden. A. C. Nelson is  the acting government agent in  his absence.   The Odd Fellows' sovereign  grand lodge is in session at Atlanta Georgia. This is the 86th  session, of the order Buffalo,  Toronto and Los Angeles are trying to secure the 1911 convention.  The Fall Fair held at Cranbrook  thi3 week was a decided improvement over the one held last year.  There was a splendid display of  fruit and vegetables. The best  fruit seemed to come from Creston and the best vegetables from  the Sfc. Eugene mission. R. A.  Webster and Wm. Tipper, who  have ranches in the Moyie valley  below Curzon, had some splendid  looking potatoes and other vegetables there, and was ample proof  of the fertility of the soil in that  locality. Several of the Cranbrook merchants had good displays of their stocks. The association needs a larger and better  exhibition building, and no doubt  this will be arranged for before  another year. It is to be regretted that some of the excellent  fruit and vegetables grown  around Moyie were not exhibited.  Little or no -advertising for the  fair was done around Moyie,  which probably accounts for the  small attendance from here. The  Leader received no press matter  for publication, as upon former  occasions, and the customary  complimentary pass to the publisher was not granted.  ���-',e�����eSSee-**��3S3'��.:��$.S3S32>33>-*��'i'  I       LOCAL ASSAYS J  i)3S3>'5.5ai9a>3S93>S3':?3>3?t3'J3i533''*  James  Colorado.

Mr. Uren  fully realized the good work done  and on behalf of the company  gave a cheque for a substantial  sum in aid of the brigade.

NOVEL CURE FOR STOUTNESS  SOCIAL Washington is highly amused  at a story at tho expense of a man  well known in club circles which has  just leaked out. The victim of the joke  is Mr. F. 0. llorstinanri, a very wealthy  Washingtonian. Air. llorstmann weighed 224 pounds, and was getting fatter,  so his doctor prescribed work for him.  The cluuman got the job, after some  difficulty, as a beer inspector at !*>1,000  a year. When ho assumed his duties he  found that they chiefly consisted in  sampling beer, lie kept the work for a  week, but when he actually found.hc  was putting on more flesh he gave-it up,  .���ind begged his friends not to tell the  doctor what kind of work.,he had pro-  i:ured. "  THE BLAND CHINESE BOY  CI 1IINESE schoolboys present a curi-  J ous contrast to the schoolboys of  the Occident. At least the observation holds with reference to tlie Oriental schoolboys of Queen 's College, Hongkong, where, it is said, a sight to be  seen any day i.s that of more than a  thousand pupils, not one of tlieni indulging in any boisterous conduct, or.  indeed, even letting oil' his superfluous  spirits by a run or a leap.  The Chinese boys of Queen's College,  Hongkong, do not hurry, but walk  sedately along with their books under  their arms. The utmost exhibition of  youthful feeling is a reserved smile  lighting up the face of a boy here and  there as he listens to the conversation  of his companions. Boisterous behavior  would, be considered by these Chinese  lads as undignified and quite contrary to  all ideas of schoolboy good form. The  more sedate a Chinese boy is iu his behavior, the more he conducts himself  like a little old man, the more aristocratic he is .considered by his schoolfellows, and the. more.'praise he receives  from his schoolmasters and his parents.  In this country and in England par  ents and  sons  dp  not invariably  agree  as to what virtues are to be admired  in a schoolboy. In China they always  do. Strange as it may seem, Chinese  youths go to school with the sole idea  of acquiring knowledge. Hence the  stolid, determined faces of the pupils of  Queen 's College in the Eastern city.  There is little varioty in the color and  cut of their dress. They wear no hats.  Some brush all their hair straight back  into their long queues; others have a  fringe of stilt' bristles dividing the  shaven from the unshaven territory of  their heads.    All carry fans.  Iu age the boys vary from nine to  twenty-three, and many of theni have  family cares in the shape of a wife and  children at home. Every year, however,  sees a decrease in the proportion of married schoolboys, and the average age  becomes less each year. In the early  history of thc school boys of all ages  were to be found in it, and it was not  ti ii unheard-of thing for father and son  to be running a close .race for the first  prize.  MOTORING  A resolution is before tho'Milwaukee,  Wis., county board of supervisors providing for the purchase of a motor  ambulance for Ihe county hospital. The  county has already equipped the shcr-  iff'.s olliee with a soven-passengor touring car lor use of the deputies, and the  saving in this respect makes it highly  probable that the ambulance measure  will be passed. The city of Milwaukee  is also working out a plan for a motor  ambulance for the city and emergency  hospitals. Tho municipality already  owns eleven cars and is well pleased  with them.  Good roads is tun lirst question that  has been taken up by the newly-organized .Nashville Automobile Club, of  Nashville, Tenn., and in this connection  the preparation of a road map of Tennessee is to boi-in at once. Secretaries C. Gilbert says that ho also is endeavoring to get the New York-Atlanta  tour to pass through Nashville. There-"  are many good roads in Tennessee, but  there are too many ' places wnere  stretches of only a mile or so, or in  other instances a few miles, condemn  a route that would otherwise be in  splendid shape. From Nashville to  Chattanooga is a good example. The  distance is 151 miles, of which 143 miles  is excellent road, but just one stretch of  S miles of mountain road that has not  been worked in -11 years makes it almost impossible for a motor car to make  the trip. Attention has already been  turned to this and it ,is probable th:s  will be one of the first results of the  organization of the club.  The Automobile Club of 'Twin 'Falls  County is the name of the organization  ,of owners of Twin Falls, Idaho, and  vicinity, which has just been formed to  promote the cause of good roads. There  arc nearly 100 motorists who have signified thoir intention of joining with; this  club. A state association is also under  way, comprising the clubs at Twin Falls,  Gooding, Boise and Idaho Falls. These  will affiliate with the American Automobile Association, The officers of the  Twin Falls club are: President, George  S. Aldrich; vice-president, J..Benjamin  Hall; secretary. Arthur "J. Peavoy;  treasurer, W. W. Mickelwait; directors.  P. li. Crow, F. C. Spencer, Carl E. Lind.  Worms in children, if they be not attended to, cause convulsions, aud often  death.

A  German sat up and looked helplessly  about him. The others wero all sleeping  peacefully.  "Mein  gracious!"  he  exclaimed,  in  tones of despair, "all the rest asleep  and I've got to smell it all!"  ��    *    *  LORD TOWNSEND, at the battle of  Dettingen, was standing quite  near a drummer boy whose brains  were dashed out by a cannon ball. His  Lordship gazed on the horrible spectacle  for some moments iu silence. At last  an old officer spoke up and said: "Why  is your lordship surprised? Such things  must happen in war." "I know it,"  was the reply; "but what astonishes me  is that a boy with so much brains should  be here at all."  * *    *  TWO  of the  gilded youth of Providence, Ithodo Island, were in Newport aud camo upon a newsboy.  "Let me have a paper," said one-of  them, giving the boy fifty cents.  "I can't change that," said the boy.  "Lend me a nickel," the gilded youth  asked his companion.  "Oh, bother, let him havo thc fifty  COlltB."  "No, indeed! You lot him have it if  you like.   My father-in-law is uot dead  and vours is."  * ��    .  THEY had reached the outer portals  of thc front door, and were there  going through tho process of parting, very lingeringly.  "When I say goodnight t�� you this  evening," gurgled Mr. Youngslow, "do  you think it would be proper for me to  place one reverent kiss upou your fair  hand?"  "Well," she sighed, softly, as she  laid her head quietly on his shoulder,  "I should consider it decidedly out of  place."  * *   *  GOV. MARSHALL has a story, says  an Indianapolis paper, about the  pastor of a country church who  preached upon the theme, "You Can't  Keep a Good Man Down." When the  appointed Sunday arrived the church  was crowded, not because he was an  especially good preacher, but because  he was a preachor who always took his  text from "the Word," and the people  were curious to know where, he would  find such a text iu the Bible. He arose  with deliberation, while the congregation waited breathlcnsly, opened his  Bible, and read: "and on the third day  the whale spewed up Jonah."  * *    *  A   HYPOCHONDRIAC   friend   of   a  Nantasket man, who was visiting  the latter's place on the coast of  Massachusetts,   imagined  that  he  was  deriving some benefit by reason of the  .sea water he was drinking."-..  One day,-as the two strolled along the  beach, the hypochondriac said to his  friend: '������������  "Dick, this sea water is really helping my dyspepsia^ I've already taken  two glasses of it thi.i morning.

J. McGiunis, a contractor, met his  friend Donovan on the pier the other  day. Donovan had just landed from  the old country and it was his first  visit to America. Stopping at the hotel  v>here the bartender in question holds  forth, McGinnis said: '  "Now, Donovan, my boy, I'll give  you a taste of liquor .that- will make  you^hink^tW~ahcient7'kings=loft���am*  brosia for ye. Bartender, give us a  couple of drinks of that forty-year-old  Bourbon ye have in the private bottle  for me."'  The bartender placed the" private  bottle" on the bar with two very small  glasses, which ho'had; filled with the  precious fluid.  Donovan lifted the pony daintly to  tho light, and turning to McGinnis,  said:  "How old did you say this is, Mac?"  "Forty years, if it's a day."  "Be  jabbers,"   said  Donovan,  with  another critical look at the glass, "It's  small for its age, ain't it?"  1*    *    *  AMONG Senator Depew's Fourth of  July stories there is one about a  veteran on a street car.  This veteran, in all the panbply of his  blue uniform, brass buttons and white  cotton gloves, was on his way to a  Fourth of July picnic on the outskirts  of the village. A stranger boarded the  car, and leaning across his wife, engaged the man in conversation.  The talk soon turned to warfare, and  the veteran said:  "Yes, sir; I've scon fightin'. I got  this gash across the check at Chica-  mauga. My still leg, by gosh, comes  from a ball in the knee���Chancellors-  ville. This thumb nail here was shot  off at Gettysburg. I lost the tip of  my ear at Spottsylvania."  "Dear me," said the stranger, "how  interesting! You have indeed, sir, seen  hot fighting. But, tell me, how did  you get that long, deep, murderous dent  down the side of your nose? A cavalry  charge���hand-to-hand engagement, eh?"  Tho veteran frowned and ignored the  question. Ho began to talk about the  heat.   But his wife interrupted.   ,.  "Go on, Bill," she said, impatiently.  "Tell the gentleman how you got the  dent in your nose."  "You shut up, Hannah!" said the  veteran.  "T won't, nuthor," said the old woman. "For it juBt about Tiles the skin  of me to hear you braggin' and braggin'  about thc marks you got. in, tlie war,  whilst you won 't never open your head  about the finest and most noticeable  mark of all���tbe one I give you with  the fire .shovel."  HIGH-POWER MICROSCOPY  THERE has been oxhibitod before thi  Royal Society of London a form 0'  microscope, the invention of Prof  Gordon, by means of which enormous  magnification of an object can, it instated, be attained without the blem  ishes due to optical causes that formed"  marred such images.  We may suppose that the enlarged  image of an object is received from s  microscope lens upon a ground-glass  focussing screen, and that then anothe:  microscope is employed still further ti  enlarge the image so formed. This is  of course, quite feasible, but the graii  of the glass would be magnified togethe  with the image and would vitiate the re  suit. Prof. Gordon uses a transluceir  screen of the finest possible texture, aud  he causes it to be kept in continual mo  tion while the object is being viewed oi  photographed. By this means the graii;  of the screen is eliminated and thi  greatly magnified image of the object  alone seen. Specimens magnified to the  extent of ten thousand diameters were  shown as proofs of the efficacy of thr  method adopted.  The Horseman  The Oil of the People���Many oils  have come and gone, but Dr. Thomas'  Eclectric Oil continues to maintain its  position and increase its sphore of usefulness each year. Its sterling qualities  have brought it to the front and kept  it there, and it can truly he called the  oil of the people. Thousands have benefited by it and would use no other preparation.  Has any horse now in training a  chance of lowering any of the seven  world's records held by Dan Patch,  .1.55?  This question has ben asked many  times, and is of special interest, now  that Dan Patch has been permanently  retiredj and at the beginning of a season  that give spromise of some exceptionally fast work by the country's harness  horses.  There are a large number of very  fast horses.in training, and in one stable  alone, that of M. W. Savage, there are  five pacers that have already shown  ability to race around two minutes, and  any one of them may be expected to do  something sensational in the record-  breaking line before the end of 1910.  In the discussion aroused by the above  question, however, one horse stands out  pre-eminently. That horse is Minor  Heir, 1.59 1-4, admitted,by most experts  to have the greatest flight of speed of  any horse ever trained with the possible  exception of Dan Patch. Whether or  not he will be able to win world championships this year is, of course, problematical; but the chances seem to favor  his doing so.  Two years ago Minor Heir was practically unknown. With tho opening of  the Grand Ciscuit races the little brown  son of Heir-at-Law paced himself into  prominence, and before the season was  well advanced well advanced he occupied a similar position in thc horse fim-  ament, and was as much talked about  as has ben Halley's comet recently.  Minor Heir's terrific brush was the talk  of the circuits, and his qualifications a?  an all-round horse put him in a class by  himself.  From early until late during 190S  Minor Heir was raced, and started in  spped exhibitions, and altogether went  through one of the hardest campaigns  to which a race-horse was ever subjected. He emerged from it with all  .'the'--.world's' records for green pacers,  a tie for the world's pacing record and  admittedly tne fastest pacer'developed  for some years. ��.c was heralded, and  with some justice, as the successor to  the champion Dan Patch. By some  people he was announced superior to  the unbeaten son of Joe Patchen.  In, December, 190S, he was purchased  by M. W. Savage, and made the stable  mate and travelling companion of the  champion. During 1909 Minor Heir  was seen in exhibition races with Dan  Patch in various parts of the country.  Unusually bad weather and track conditions made extreme speed impossible.  Notwithstanding this fact, Minor Heir  continued to show improved form, and  gradually but completely overcome tho  effects of the gruelling campaign in  190S. This Was proved at Phoenix, Arizona, where, in spite of cold weather,  lie tied the world's unpaced mile record  of ���1.5.9 1-4. '  A large majority of the timers caught  the time of the mile at 1.59 Hat. The  official timers, however, thought .���differently, and 1.59 7-8 stands as his record,  and he shares the honor of thU niariv  with Jos. Patchen and Audubon Boy. v  There are a number, of trainers whose  judgment is very highly considered  throughout the horse world who believe  iiere is one horse now in training that  has a chance to lower Dan Patch's rec  ord.

WOODEN pipes for the convej-anct  ..' of water are in use today uoi  only on the Pacific slope of tin  United States, but in. England as well  These pipes in America, some of which  are many feet in diameter, are made ot  Californian redwood and are construct  ed with staves and hoops like an ordin  ary barrel. "Where sharp turns are neces  sary an elbow joint of cast iron or ol  steel in the case of the larger pipes is-  introduced. These pipes serve man-  important industries and one of theii  most valued features is that they can  be transported piecemeal and put to  gethcr when they reach their destinn  tion. Tho wood is of very light weight  and is exceedingly durable.  It is by no means au uncommon sight  in thc city of London, when a street is-  "up,"  to" sec  lying along the curb  a  few lengths of wooden water pipes thai  have been unearthed by the excavators  These are simply trunks of trees goner  ally about nine inches iii exiornnl diam  eter.

WILLIAMS, president of the  Woodlawn Farm Co., of Sterling.  111., and also president of the fair  association there for' thc last ten years,  in a letter to The Horseman, strikes  several good keynotes,   lie says:  "I am pleased to enclose you cheek  for $2.00 to renew "my subscription as 1  certainly feel tnat your paper is worthy  of support. Your attitude at all times  seems to make for progress and certainly deserves support of all those who  a"re interested in the advancement of  the harness horse.  "As president of our fair association  for the last ten years, a breeder in a  small way, and occasionally racing one,  I have naturally had more or less opportunity to see the game from all its  different angles.

Murine Eye Remedy Co- Torontc  siblo to convince the race track owners  and managers, the horse owners and the  breeders that their interests were mutual and that instead of each one trying  to do the other fellow they should all  work together and fry to get thc money  from the box-ofiieo instead of out of  each other, it would take but a. few  short years to make harness racing what  it justly deserves to be, the most popular sport in America and a money maker for all concerned.  "The baseball managers long ago  learned to cater to the people and to  rely ou the box-office for the money  Lo finance tne game. The same is true  of the theatre owners, the nickel show  owners; in. fact every amusement except horse racing. Unfortunately the  average secretary seems to regard the  liox-ollice as the last place to increase  his receipts. Many of thorn sit up uignts  trying to devise some now kind of a  payment plan that, will catch horsemen*  enough that they will make entries enough to race for their own money trusting to the concessions, many of them  doubtful as to character for the rest of  his expenses and hoping that the few  people that come through tlie gate will  be left as a profit. Tho average horseman on the other hand is hoping that  his owner is dead game or that he may  hit tho pool box at. the right minute  and the public who spend their money  so liberally for entertainment in other  lines and who may be induced to spend  for a harness race are entirely lost sight  of.  "When it finally dawns upon those  connected with horse racing that what  the public wants is clean, sharp, quick  racing, with attractive surroundings,  and that they are willing to pay for  what they want, horse racing will then  take its place as one of the most popular  sports in America. Tho thing that most  people connected with the hors'e racing  game seem totally unable to realize is  that the person who is not. a horse  crank sees absolutely nothing to attract  or interest thoni in a 'harness race as  conducted'today.. The average individual knows nothing about pedigrees, is  not interested as to whether one family  of horses can go'3 heats or 10; does not  take any particular pleasure or enjoyment out of a bunch of hobble pacers  going over the quarter pole in 30 seconds, where they cannot see how fast  they are going and finish down thc  home stretc.i at a 4-mile gait with  every driver yelling and batting his  horse like an Indian; they get sick and  tired and disgusted of a long drawn-out.  race with' the last heats backing up  from 5 to .10 seconds slow,er than the  [iist heats; a dusty track, bare, brown  buildings, a motley assortment of caretakers, half-drunk gamblers and touts,  filling up the track, and an illy-dressed  lot of drivers, to say nothing of a lot  of other personal discomforts which do  not make them very enthusiastic about  coming back the next day. Horse races  of this kind do not pay, and it is a case  of dog-eat-dog between those interested.  "Theatre or auv other amusement  would not last for 'thirty days if conducted in the same manner. I sincerely  trust tuat you people .will keep hammering for progress. There is certainly  plenty of room for improvement. In  our small way we are trying in our circuit, and especially in our little association at Sterling, to got in line. We  are offering a race this year all the way  through Illinois-Iowa circuit for 2:30  pacers without hobbles. The circuit is  also at their own expense going to furnish the drivers with appropriate suits,  also neat suits for thc caretakers, so  that the casual race goers, and especially the feminine end of it can have a  favorite in each race of for no other reason than that they like the color of the  jacket the driver is wearing.  "Here at home in our own association  we are trimming up our weeds, have let  a .contract for whitewashing every  bnilding~wo have on the place,which by  'the-way wc did two years ago. We have  for years made it a practice to have the  track sprinkled in front of the grand  stand and to absolutely; keep tne track  clear in front of the grand stand of  caretakers, and everybody else. In other words we aro trying, to interest the  people. We adopted the same course  last year and .While we unfortunately  had a soaking rain two days, we had the  best prospects that we have ever.had  in'onr history and barring rain this year  I believe that with good weather we will  be able to interest, the people.

CEREMONIAL   ATTENDING   BIRTH  IN BURMA  THE birth of a Burmese baby is attended with a good deal of after-,  ceremonial.  The first important event is the spe  cial performance of a.play,-the child1!:  horoscope is cast, and the name chosen.  The Burmese baby's cradle is made 01  woven bamboo aud leaves, and an olu  piece of blauket serves as the coverlet;  the cradle is hung from the roof b-.  vine tendrils, which in Burma ,are at  strong as ropes, and swings low enough  to allow children to sway it and sing  the quaint Burmese lullabies.  The astrologer plaj'S an important  part in the early days of the Burmese  baby. Thc auspicious naniing-day is  fixed on, and invitations sent to the  child's relatives. The Burmese divide  the letters of tho alphabet among the  days of tlie week, so a baby born ou  a Monday receives a name initialled by  a letter peculiar to that day.  Each day is under thu protection of  a special animal. Oautauma, the tiger,  patronises Monday; Tuesday is devoted  to thc lion; Wednesday to the elephant;  Thursday is sacred to'tho rats; Friday  to the guinea-pigs; the dragon own^  Saturday, and a sort of griffin Sunday  Tattooing is the next process, and the  baby is decorated with strange designs  of animals and charms, and the baby  becomes'a sort of illustrated picture-  book. As the baby grows ho takes to  smokinng, and it is a funny sight to  see the wee things contentedly smoking  their cheroots.  When the boys arc old enouugh thev  arc sent to schoo lat thc monasteries;  the dunces aro punished by being obliged to carry tho industrious boys ou  their backs up and down thc schoolyard.  The Burmese believe that a person';:  disposition accords .with the attributes-  of thc day of nis birth. Monday chil  dren are jealous, Tuesday born are  honest, w'cdiiesday children are hast}  tempered, but forgiving; Thursday's:  child is mild and happy in disposition,  and Saturday children are pugnacious;  but all' babies born on a Sunday are  miserly in after-life..  EARLY FLYING MACHINE  SOMETHING very like the present  day flying machines was invented  as far back as 1S-13 by a Mr. Hen  son. The principal feature was tht  great expanse of its sustaining planes  The machine was to advance with its  front edge a little raised, the effect  of which would be to present its under  surface to the air over which it was  passing. Mr. Henson also invented 0  steam engine of surprising lightness ti  drive it, but he never trusted himsoll  to this machine. Some of the features  of his invention would, however, per  haps be worth digging out of the Patem  Office.  netVBtncu.iD pwe  vpusXtg Xrvug joj ��*��B  ��,.tq-��a   u|    pun   a��AB   Jnoi   U|   eaiinft  ijj. -3o�� J��j ��ii9i" pu'e 'upicr ��xh B��ir��oog  "I-nimo   i.ustioa    t��jCa   i")aAl   ��u��qiSu��jifl  TinXg  suog  ��8A��iii��H  Xpeuiau  eXa  eujjmji  ZAM-BUK  CURES  SUNBURN  Neglect of a sunburn on face, aim  or neck often leads to tlie after growth  of skin which is freckled or coarse;  and this is particularly distressing to  ladies.

THE CANADIAN GOVERNMENT  DOCKYARD  "l^TOW that negotiations are in pro-  i-i gross for tho establishment by  leading firms of an elaborate  plant in Canada, it is opportune to point  out that the Dominion Government now  possesses at Sorel, on the River St. Lawrence, forty miles below Montreal, au  extensive dockyard covering many  acres, at which nearly .1,000 workmen  arc employed', ami whore a large number of steamships, dredgers, and other  craft used in the service of the Canadian Department of Marhie, are constructed. Prior to his recent appointment as Deputy Minister of Marine under the Hon. 1'j. P. Brodeur, Mr. G. J.  Desbarats acted for some years as superintendent of this dockyard. The latost  large vessel built there was the steel  s.s. Montmagny. Her length over all  is 222 feet, with 34 ft. S in. beam, 15  ft. draught, and 2,004 tons displacement. She is built for a speed of olcvcn  knots and a half per hour, but on hcr  trial trip she dcvolopcd a mean spcod  of fourteen and a half miles an hour.  Thc Montmagny has three decks, and  all the steel scantlings are up to Lloyd's  highest class. Thus thc Sorel shipbuilding yard, which over a century ago  turned out the first steamship ever built  on the vjontincnt of America, has now  put thc finishing touches to the first  steel ocean-going steamship ever built  in Canada. It was in 1S09 that the Accommodation was built tnerc; now the  Montmagny, an up-to-date steamer built  for the light service below Quebec, is  ready for work.  Away down 011 the Beaujou Banks,  over thirty miles east of Quebec, on the  St. Lawrence, the Beaujou, which was  also built in the Sorel shipyards, is  working day and night, drawing load  after load of clay and sand from tho  St.; Lawrence ship channel, which already enables vessels drawing nearly  30 feet of water to come up to Montreal,  a distance of over 300 miles from Father  Point and Iiimouski, where ocean-going  steamships discharge or receive their  pilots.  Through indiscretion in eating green  fruit in summer many children become,  subject to cholera morbus caused by  irritating acids that act violently on  the~lining of the intestines. Pains and  dangerous purgings ensue and the delicate system of the child suffers under  the drain. In such cases the safest and  surest medicine is Dr. J. D. Kellogs's  Dysentery .Cordial. It will check the  inflammation and save the child's life.

I shall be very pleased to answer the gentleman's query. I notice  that my friend in the back of the hall is smoking a cigar. That, as we all  know, is aii evidence of prosperity. Such has been the marvelous progress of  this great and glorious west, since my government came into power, that any  men may, at will, smoke cigars, instead of the home-grown pipe tobacco, the  fragrance of which lingers in my boyhood's memory.  The gentleman at the back of the hall is even more than ordinarily blessed,  ���-: for T perceive that the cigar he is smoking is a BUCK-EYE. It is one of those  extraordinary dispensations of Providence that you, my fellow Canadians in this  great and glorious country, are enabled to enjoy the privilege of obtaining the  BUCK-EYE at the ordinary price. And if I needed proof of the discernment of  my able friend at the back of the hall, if I needed an illustration of his ability  to pick out the. salient points of any subject under discussion, if I were to ask  for the reason why he has become so prosperous, so independent, so far-sighted,  en clear of vision���I should point to his choice of the BUCK-EYE. Such keenness  of perception, such admirable judgment, warrant mo in the expression of the  belief that so long as my government shall be in power, so long as I shall be  spared to direct the destiny of this glorious young nation, so long as the sturdy  pioneers of these vast western provinces display such splendid qualities of judgment as are evinced by my friend in the back of the hall, I look forward to the  time when the teeming population of these illimitable prairies shall be as  prosperous, as happy, as independent and as fortunate as my favored friend in  the back of the hall���when, under the guidance of Providence aud the stimulation of my government, every man, woman, and child throughout these vast  regions will be in a position, if they so wish, to choose the BUCK-EYE for their ;  after-dinner cigar.    ���< ��� ������  P.S.���Not only Sir Wilfrid, but every visitor to the West cannot  but notice the remarkable popularity of the BUCK-EYE,  the best ten-cent cigar orf sale to-day.  52b I  if.  m  m  THE   MOYIE  LEADER  SAVE YOUR GRAIN'  Owing to the great heat this  season a great deal of grain will  have very short straw, making it  hard to handle.

OIL PAINTINGS  A DROP of oil on water shows sonu  very peenliar'.and .interesting do  velopincnts when watched closely.  Of course it sprea;dsHn all directions at  a thin lilm, but later small, holes appeal  in this film, and still later other figuros.  Each different kind of oil gives a chumc  teristie figure or pattern. This is a verj  simple way of finding, out what oil 0111  is experimenting with, but the charac  tenstic patterns must be known. Tint  is a special department of science anc.  is known as oleography, or the taking  of oil pictures. A drop of pure spern.  oil let fall into a vessel full of watci  quickly becomes an enlarged circului  film of several inches iu diameter and  breaking at the edges into small round  holes.' This takes place iu about fift\  or sixty seconds if the oil be pure. Tin  centre of the circle soon becomes fillet  with littlo. holes that .are, however  smaller than those at the edges. At tin  end of about two minutes the holes liavi  expanded until the oil shows a delicati  network resembling eoarso veiling. .Tlii:  keeps up for several minutes until tin  expansion breaks up the pattern am  the oil practically disappears.  As each on gives a particular trac  ^ery^iWljacpu^es^uccossai-yj^or^at^TLeasL  desirable, to secure the pattern perman  ently. After l.my experiments such a  method was f^und. A sheet of an\  glazed paper is placed for a moment on  the'pattern. Of course, the paper absorbs the. oil where there is oil, and  water where there is water. Now talu  the paper and place ittfor a moment on  the surface of a plate of black ink.  The ink colors the water part, but oulj  very faintly colors thc oil tracery, so  when the paper is dipped into water to,  wash off tho excess ink and is dried thc  pattern of oil is seen in a relief effect.  Any color ink may be used for these  pictures, or two colors may be used in  obtaining a variety of tints. Of course  the data of tho particular picture shoulc  bo written at the bottom, such as tin  kind of oil, tho time elapsing from tin  falling of the drop to the taking of tlit  graph, tho height from which the drop  fell, and the purity of the water.  THE head of a manufacturing concert  who built up his business i'ron  nothing by his own dogged and  persistent toil, and who has never fell  that hc could spare the time for a vaca  tion, not long ago, however, decided  that he was getting along in years, anc.  that he was entitled to a rest. Calling  his son into the library, he said: "Tom  I've worked pretty hard for quite a  while now and have done very well, so  I have decided to retire and turn tlu  business over to you. What do you  say?" The young man pondered tin  situation gravely. Then a bright idei.  seemed to strike' him. "I say, clad," hi  suggested,." how would it do for yoi  to work a few years longer and then tin  two of us retire together'?"  FASHIONS   AND  FANCIES  'HUE French style specialists have much to say of the  J. fashion future. There is no uncertainty about, their  edict for the fall. Like tho general effect, it is straight  ip and down. They have drawn the line aud it is a pcrpeii-  lieular line. To be fashionable, these French oracles say,  me must have the silhouette of a sylph. Straight, straighter,  -traitrhtest are the new lines for coats, skirts and sleeves,  simple designs are to bo the most mouisli and richness will  ��e expressed rather in tue fabric itself than in its oruamen-  :atioa.  Of course, what Paris says goes a' long way,-even as it has  :ome a long way, with the American woman. For experience-  nas taught her never to despise a good thing, even though she  lireetly sets about making it a better one. So, whether slit  ,s snort and undeniably fat, whether tall and athletic in  auiId or whether from the time she first put up lier hair and  eugthencd her skirts she has been proud of the pretty curves  if her figure���no matter her type���she listens with interest  ��� 0 the description of the fashionable silhouette.  Whether or not she considers-it practical or even views it  in tho light of a possibility for her own particular self, that,  di! that is quite another story.  Xo woman in the world cares more to be in style than the  Vmericau woman; to know that in every detail sho is au  .'ait aud mode do la mode. Why, thc very consciousness ol  -uch correctness is worth the cost of a dozen modistes. She  ivho I'��� all right in her own sight has advanced very far  ���oward being all right in the sight of others. She appreciates that the French couturieres have inherited taste, that  ���.hey fairly breathe charm and that the leaders of style add  1 uew beauty to each design with every added touch. She  ���nows thnt the idea, the basic idea which conies from Paris,  s. generally speaking, a good ono. But if she is a sensible  woman, she looks at these ideas as suggestions, not edicts.  What is possiblo in style she will follow, but the American  woman will think long and seriously of herself, hcr advantages and her limitations, before sho will adopt a style which  in  any way will make her appear ridiculous.  More and moro thc American woman, in hcr striving for  beauty and stylo in dress, is learning to give two impressions  But Paris goes too far, she becomes very far off when she  advocates a skirt a yard and a half around. If the American  woman wore a skimpy skirt of this sort, she would never  bo able to walk gracefully, and hopping is not exactly in her  line. Paris makes a.mistake when she dictates to American  women the absurd.  However, all the new skirts will have the long, narrow  effect. Even the sleeves of the tailored suits will carry out  this idea. They will be long and plain and put in at the  shoulder without any fulness whatever. ��� And it is quite  noticeable that as they near the wrist they will widen out a  trifle just to emphasize the straight-line effect.  The tweiity-four-iuch-leiigth coat will be more fashionable  than tlie thirty-inch, and the twenty-six-inch and the twenty-  eight-inch lengths will undoubtedly be the most popular of  all. A number of the now-short coats suggest the box coat  of other seasons. Since tlie coat of the tailored suit is to be  short, this brings into fashion again tlie very long separate  coat which is here and here to stay throughout the fall and  winter, for in dress, as in very many other things, variety is  always warmly  welcomed by the American woman.  Fach new season the fabrics in weave, design, and coloring are more beautiful than .the season before. This is  especially, so at the present time. The fall materials are  particularly rich and beautiful.' Perhaps one reason may be  that they will be used for such plain costumes.  For tailor-made suits there are two distinct classes of  fabrics, both equally fashionable���the smooth-surfaced materials and those of a rough, more or less silky, texture. The  mannish worsteds are specially modish and are most inconspicuous in design and coloring. Decided stripes and pronounced checks arc not used, but broken diagonal effects arc  in high style,, and many invisible checks will be worn. In  the rough-surfaced materials, which Paris is specially advocating, arc many zibilones with a rough basket weave, also  very rough cheviots and serges. Cheviots with a boucle  finish, the raised effect being iu an inconspicuous stripe, are  very fashionable, and so are the basket weaves. Corduroy .is  another fabric which promises to be a favorite all through  the coming season. Panne cloth, Theodora cloth, broadcloth  and satin will all be used for one-piece costumes aud thc  dressy  tailor-mades.  For dinner and evening gowns the transparent materials  are more in vogue than ever, many of them in black and  white mixtures, mounted over satin foundations���for instance, black and while voiles, in a.small inconspicuous check  over emcrald-grccn satin. . The black velvet costume, with  just a touch of fawn color, cameo pink or pale blue Theodora  cloth introduced js a trimming, will be high style. Nets over  satin foundations will be very much used, especially thc  grey net studded with sequins or beads of cut steel.

When these two arc combined with judgment,  hen that harmonious blending of the best which is modish  vith the best that is personal has been achieved and this,  a my opinion, is the acme of American dress.  Lot it be remembered by those whose scant purses force  hem to study the little economies that it is always the first  mprcssiou that counts in dress. Avho is there that first picks  i flower to pieces before exclaiming, "How beautiful!" In  ither words, it only detracts from a stylish, becoming frock  o have its elaboration so conspicuous that its price is at  nice suggested.  The study of the silhouette is most important. Every  voman who wishes to be smartly gowned should know each  ���eason just what Paris has to say about the new lines of the  igure. In planning her own gowns, if she does not know  ���his, she will be very apt to look woefully out of date.  Sometimes, you know, Paris just loves bouffant effects,  nany little outstanding ruffles and frills. She has beeu  <nown to rave over this curve arid that of the figure. Consc-  luently, it is wise, oh! very wise indeed, to know her views  m the subject of the silhouette at tho beginniung pf oach  icw season.  Just uow the perpendicular effects are the modish effects  ind the mode of thc moment seems to be to have the hem  if thc skirt and thc width of the shoulders measure up about  he same. American manufacturers are bearing all this in  nind, witu the result that the new costumes for autumn,  .vhether in the coat-and-skirt or the one-piece drosses, are  leing built on straighter lines than ever before.  Last fall it was the long coat for the tailored suit which  vas fashionable . This year it is the short coat lhat leads  he mode. A year ago at this/time the plaited skirts with the  .daits running all tho way around was the smartest model for  ���he fall. This season the fulness has been banished and,  A-liere plaits are seen at all, they are banded in close to the  igure to carry out the straight-up-and-down effect. The plain  ���'ored skirt will be good style for autumn and equally fash-  onable will be thc skirt with a very flat box-plait back  md front, showing plain, straight sides banded close to the  ngure below the knees. The skirt with a foot band will re-  nain fashionaole right throughtho fall and winter.  It is not so very long ago that the deep yoke of heavy  lace was a feature of many of the most effective costumes.  This season it. is the shallow yoke, and that alone, whiWi will  be modish, and. frequently this little yoke, to make it less  conspicuous, will bo veiled with chiffon. Many col.larless  waists will be worn all through the winter. Waists finished  with a turn-down collar of satin or suede will be very fashionable. It is a great mistake, however, for a woman whose  throat is not white and pretty to have the neck of her frock-  finished in this way. Net yokes and high stork collars are  also fashionable and especially when thoy are cream white,  finished with a piping of black or paisle}' satin. Sleeves arc  all more or less simple. The coat sleeves are long and  straight, with the exception of the "more dressy" tailor-  mades where the threequarter-length sleeve is seen, finished  with a rather elaborate cuff.  #    #    .'.'  No ripplo of fulness will be visible anywhere in the tailor  ed suits for autumn.   Skirts will bo short and very close cnt.  fascinating two-color combinations. The now silk poplin,  with a jacquard figure iu self-color, is also among the attractive new fabrics, as well as the mandarin crepes, with their  lovely printed designs in color or in shimmering gold.  A DOMINO TRICK  '-'"'  ASK a friend to  think  of a  domino,  not'necessarily'a  double.    Tell him to multiply the spots on one half of  it by five.   Then ask him to add seven to the result and  to double this result.    He should then add the spots on the  other half of the domino to the total.  Now ask your friend to tell you what the above arithmetical calculations come to.  No matter what domino your friend chooses���of course,  excepting the double blank���you can tell what it is by simply  subtracting fourteen from the amount your friend tells you.  Tnis trick is not easy to explain, but the following  example  will   help  .  "* Say your friend thinks of the 6-1, and selects the half  with six on it. Then .five sixes are thirty; adding seven, he  gets thirty-seven; double this is seventy-four. He adds in  the other half of thc domino���a four���and this makes the  total seventy-eight.  He tells you seventy-eight.  You subtract-fourteen from this amount and sixty-four  remains. Vou then know that thc domino he thought of was  the (5-1.  WATOH SCREWS AND JEWELS  PROBABLY the smallest screws are  those turned out in a watch factory. They are cut from steel wire  by a machine, but, as the chips fall  from the knife, one is tempted to ob-  sorv'e that the operator is amusing himself, inasmuch as no screws can be seeii.  Vet, at every, third operation of the machine a screw.is duly completed.  The fourth jewel-wheel screw is next  to invisible, and to tho naked eye it  resembles a speck of dust. With a glass,  it'may be seen to be a small screw, and  some calculation reveals the fact that it  has two hundred and sixty threads to  tlie inch. It takes a very powerful glass  to observe these threads.  Theso screws are said to be but four  one-thousandths of an inch in diameter,  and tlie heads are double in size. It has  been estimated that an ordinary thimble  could contain ono hundred thousand of  them.   .  Quite a number of new jewel settings  have beeu added to the'movements of  first-class'watches during the last ten  years.- These new jewels have created  an added demand for expert jewel-setters.'  TliC'term "jewel" in a watch movement is to be taken literally. The small  precious stones are drilled to receive  the pinions or axles of the wheels, the  object being to provide a bearing thai  will not corrode and will not wear away  easily.  The garnet is the least valuable of  these jewel settings, but some of the  minute sapphires and rubies employed  in the bearings of a watch are quite  good enough  for the setting of a  ring.  For the most part, however, those  fragments of, precious stones are oil'  color, the' sapplrre especially pale to insignificance, but at the same time harder  and better for watch-jewels because ��'  this light color. Occasionally a ruby  jewel burns rod in one of the neat little  envelopes in whicn they come from  -Switzerland.^fi-va-Jiim^red^or^oae^tiimb^  sand in,it lot.

Take an orange  and point it toward one comer of the  room, rotating it so that the same pole  always points to that corner.    Imagine  an ant on the orange near its equatoi  and  the   view  it would  obtain  of  the  corner of the room and the other objects  in the room.    It. will-be at once, seen  that the  corner  will  always be  in  the  same relative position to ant, while everything  else  will   seem   to  rotate,   or  rather revolve, around the corner.    So  it is with the stars���they all seem actu  ally to revolve around the North Star,  but this is solely duo to the rotation of  the earth.   Of course the North Star can  not  be  seen  from   the  southern   hemi  sphere, for the line of sight would pass  through   the   earth's   rotundity  at   the  equator.    For th:s same reason all the  stars near the North Star are invisible  in  the southern  hemisphere, while the  Southern  Cross  aiub stars  near  it  are  never seen in the northern hemisphere.

PLEASING THE SULTAN  KAID HELTON tells the following story, which illustrates exactly tho attitude of thc Sultan of Morocco  towards the French. |_  One day the Sultan asked a lady, the wife of his dentist,  to play one of the pianos that was in the room of the Palace.  She played several pieces, one of them at length catching the  Sultan's fancy, whereupon the following littlo dialogue took  place:  Sultan: "That piece is very nice. What is it called?"  Dentist: "It is the 'March on Cadiz.' It'was written to  commemorate the Spaniards driving the French out of  Spain." '  Sultan:  "What, were the French in Spain?"  Dentist:   "Yes."  Sultan:  "How many of tlienr?"  Dentist: "About two hundred thousand."  Sultan (in a surprised tone): "And thc Spaniards drove  theni out'?"  Dentist: "Yes, every ono of them."  There was a slight pause while tho Sultan was thinking  hard, and then:  Sultan (quietly): "Play it again."  Aunt Anna asked her little nephew what he would like  to give his cousin for his birthday.  "I know," he answered, "but I ain't big enough."  ,,   The hen returned to her nest, only to find it empty.  "Very funny! " said she; "I can't find things where I lay  them.''

CANADA'S WHEAT CROP  Professor Leaccck  on the  Dominion's  Potentialities  IN the course of an article on "Canada and the World's Wheat Supply;" appearing in the Brantford  Expositor, Professor Stephen Leacock,  of McGill University, points out that at  tho present time, of course, Canada is  not in the first rank of the great wheat  producing countries. We have so often  called ourselves the "granary of the  Empiro" and the "wheat belt of the  world" (hc remarks), that the ordinary Canadian may be pardoned if he is  unaware that we are at best only just  emerging from the second rank of  wheat producing countries. Even our  bumper crop of 100 million bushels of  11)09 will not compare with the 737,000,-  000 bushels.of the United States, or the  -YSOiOOOiOOO'busheis^f-Rtissia-ramHooks'  small in a world production of 3,500,-  000.000 bushels. France, Austria-Hungary, under present conditions, overpass each year the Canadian output. But  if we turn from the present to the .future and thin ic of the potential production of the Nortn-West, it is clear that  Canada is interested in the wheat  supply more than any other country of  thc globe.  Tn our last year wc raised a crop of  160,000,000 bushels of wheat and used  for it some eight million acres.   But our  potential production is vastly greatei  I than this, and the advance of agricul-  i tural science is improving our chances  the hands of the setter the cylinder M every year.

PROVING THE EARTH ROTATES  ONE of thc simplest proofs of the  . rotation of the earth can be obtained by rolling up a piece of  paper into a fine tube and taking a  sight on a star. The tube must be held  steadily or, better still, fastened to the  side of a window. Pretty soon the star  will move across the field of view and  away so as not to be seen. This must  be' occasioned by thc earth's rotating  with the tube on it, for the stars are  known to be practically fixed. To find  the point, about which it rotates���that  is, the star end of the axis of rotation���  severalstarshavetobccxaminerl.

Thc  isothermal linos that hang low beneath  the Hudson Bay and the frigid region  of the north shore, sweep westward in  a boldly ascending curve far up in the  valleys of tlio Peace and tho Mackenzie.  Wheat is actually growing now between  the parallels of 5S and 5!) degrees.  Just what the extent of our agricultural heritage is in Canada, we do not  yet know, but here is an estimate given  out officially a month or two ago over  the signature of Mr. Archibald Blue,  the chief officer of the Census Department. Canadian land suitable for cultivation: Alberta, 00,453,000 acres; Brit  ish Columbia, 28,092,000 acres; Manitoba, 24,700,000 acres; Nova Scotia, 8,-  704,000 acres; Ontario, 50,450,000 acres;  Prince Edward Island, 1,258,000 acres;  Quebec, 43,745,000 acres; Saskatchewan,  93,055,000 acres; New Brunswick and  Territories, 10,718,190; total, 358,835,-  190 acres. According to tho estimate  there arc 238 million acres of arablo  land in tho west of Canada, of which,  according to common computation, at  least 50 million would bo suited for  growing wheat. This is tho figure re-'  eontly quoted, as a conservative estimate, by the Minister of Agriculture in  an address at Montreal.  Tho estimate above places thc arablo  land of the Eastern Provinces at 121  million acres. Of this only about ono  million acres is now under whear, but  no doubt the stimulus of rising prices  would increase this average to at least  three million . We see they have a total  of 53 million acres still unused. At tho  rate of 20 bushels to the acre our potential crop is increased from its present  100 million to 1,000 million bushels.  Wo find, then, that a general survey  of the situation shows that wc still  possess in various quarters of the world  a great reserve power for the production  of wheat. Argentina, with 40 million  acres in hand, can add from 500 to S00  million bushels. Canada can add nearly  1,000 millions and Manchuria at least  250 million bushels by the present output. More than this, the further application of intensive cultivation to tho  United States, to Russia, and toother  areas of a low yield, will add perhaps  one-third to the existing production of  tho laud in use. Sir William Crookcs  has^certainly^ undw-cstjmntcd the ex-  yansirjiirof_thc wheat crop."AccoFdiiig"  to his calculation the world's crop in  1931 would reach 3,200,000,000 bushels.  By 1909 it had already exceeded that  figure by a quarter of a billion bushels.  If we add together the--production possible on new land and the increased  production on the old, the figures given  above will warrant tlio..statement thai  the world's productions will reach 7,  000,000,000 bushels per annum before  we. arc at the end of our resources.  The wheat famine, then, is no*; at present to bo dreaded, and even before its  advent is due the further advance of  science and the utilization of now forms  of energy will find us a means of escape.  This much, however, is undoubtedly  true. The world's consumption of wheat  is increasing so rapidly that we arc  forced constantly to new soils and more  costly methods. The result is inevitable.  Thc day of cheap wheat is past. The rise  in price, which has been characteristic  of the past few years, is not a mere  fluctuation of the market. It corresponds to a genuine increase iu the  demand and increase iu the cost of production. Wheat at $1 n bushel is destined to become a thing of the past, fl  fact nt which Goodman Canada, vhosc  trade is mainly that of a farmer may  well permit himself a broad sinne beneath  his straw  sombrero.

Yet the ghost is a fancy and  the germ is a fact. H the germ could be magnified  to a size equal to its terrors it would appear mora  terrible than any fire-breathing dragon. Germs  can't be avoided. They are in the air we breathe,  the water we drink.  The germ can only prosper when the condition  of thc system gives it free scope to establish itself and develop.    When   there is a deficiency of  vital force, languor, restlessness, a sallow cheek, *  .  a hollow eye, when the appetite is poor and the  sleep is broken, it is time to guard against the germ. You can  fortify the body against all germs by the use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. It increases the vital power, cleanses the  system of clogging impurities, enriches the blood, puts the stomach and organs of digestion and nutrition in working condition, so  that thc germ finds no weak or tainted spot in which to breed.

"Can be depended upou" is an  expression we all like to hear, and  when it is used in connection with  Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and  Diarrhoea Remedy it means that  it never fails to cure diarrhoea,  dysentery or bowel complaints.  It is pleasant to take and equally  valuable for children and adults.  Sold by the Moyie Drug & Stationery Co.  Don't waste your money buying  plasters when' you can buy a  bottle of Chamberlain's Liniment  for twenty-five cents. A piece of  tlannel dampened with this liniment is superior to any plaster  for lame back, pains in the side  or chest', ana much1 cheaper. Sold |  by the Moyie Drug and Stationery Co.
