West Not Anxious to Have American Duty Taken. Off  Wheat.  THe Toronto Wows published a remarkable interview with H'on. Mr.  Sifton, Minister of tho Interior, obtained by Mr. E. W. Thomson, formerly one of tho editors of tho Toronto  I'lobe and afterward ono of t'ho editors of tlio Youth's Companion, of  Boston, who h'as recently been in  Cunaci.i writing a scries of articles for  a Boston paper on Canadian affairs.  As Mr. Thomson is woll known, as- a  very roliablo writer and his articles  'have all been exceedingly favorable  to the Xiaitrlcr Government, tliis interview must bo regarded as authentic.  It ls exceedingly important as showing tho attitude of tho Minister of  tho Interior on th'o epiestions of Reciprocity and Protection.  Aftor an introductory paragraph  highly praising Mr. Sifton, Mr.  Thomson proceeds to givo Mr.  Sifton's views on Reciprocity as follows:  Sir Wilfred .Lniirior, as I disclosed  recently in a nublishod letter, would  probably favor a conference witli  "Washington on reciprocity, if Washington made advances in conformity  wit'h Laurier's proviso that thero is  no use talking about th'o thing unless  reason can bo shown for an opinion  tliat tho United States, particularly  their Senate, will agree to confine reciprocity to natural products and  materials-more or less raw for manufacture. Fielding is very much' of  th'o same opinion, as I happen to  know by having liad a talk with  him sonic littlo time ago on the  matter.    Now for Sifton:  "I h'ave no objection to your using  niy  name,"   h'e  said.   ".Quito  willing  to lc interviewed.    You  supposo   our  Wost to bo a unit in favor of reciprocity  in  naturals.   It  is  not  so.   Certainly,  1 used  to favor sucli reciprocity.   But I am not like some people  wo both know���������I can learn.   I "do not  say that th'o Canadian West, and myself,     might    not    approve free,     or  much moro    free exchange of natural  products with the States-.   It depends  on what arrangements could tie mado  for  permanency  of   the   arrangement.  Wo could not afford to risk much" on  a "market that might bo hastily closed to us.  -���������'���������:   SO SHORT TERM TREATY.  "Canadians havo not forgotten tlio  lesson of 1866, when Washington abrogated     the.    reciprocity   treaty     of  18G'J.   This country had got into tho  way of adapting its production,   and  very  largely  its  entire business,     to  t'he American market.

Does anybody of good sense imagine  wo will give tliat up,  and undertake  a i-e-acIaptation to the United Slates  market on a  bargain  extending  ovcr  any short term,   or  which could     be  dono away witli by a few years'  notico from Washington?     No.  . "Could thc necessary permanence bo  secured? I    havo not given  so  mucli  thought  to  tliat     as  would  warrant  me in replying yea or nay. Wliat uso  in studying a question that is unlikely, to como up soon. Washington   has  not shown any distinct intention    of  proposing  a  conference  on   tlio    only  sort of reciprocity that Canada could  judiciously discuss.   I am not ono of  th'o infallible people wiio know everything  by instinct.    Time enough     to  talk aboul how to secure permanency  of     reciprocity    in   "naturals"   when  Washington   antl    Ottawa  shall havo  discussed things, ancl got to an agreement  that they would  both like     to  mako permanent.  WEST !AND FREE WHEAT.  "As to wheat. I am far from suro  tliat tho Wost cares to liave the American duty taken off wheat. You  stare. But consider that our interest  is to have the first-class wheat of our  "West mil led in Winnipeg or Rat Port-  nge,-inslcad-of-Minneapolis.-Wo-want  to export it as flour, as much as  possible. That will givo us two profits. It is truo that in present cir-  cumslnncos, with Winnipeg not fully  developed as a flouring point, Minneapolis can ollc-r a triflo more for  our wheat during a fow weeks after  harvest thnii Winnipeg can. But it is  just as cheap to haul flour to the sea  from Winnipeg or tho Lake, of the  Woods as from Minneapolis. lt will  be cheaper all Ihe year round prelty  soon. I mean as soon ns wo get our  waterways improve*.'! to . thc utmost  land our almost dead level first-class  nation:!)" transcontinental railway  built. 'Hint completion'is only a few  years ahead. So wn do not need, an'd  do not much wish to liavo our wheat  growers feeling dependent on Minneapolis iniios. At any rate tho price  paid for wheal i.s really .made in JLiv-  eri-ool, juKt as the. Minneapolis operators fold you lust full on the floor  of their when I exchange. I mn not  saying Unit there would bo no early  profit to our vvhent growers if the  United "Status .duty of 25 cents a  bushel on wheat wore removed., But  ll is not- tlie height of wisdom to  Want, tho American duty takon olt  when ono of Its effect'1 is to promote  flour milling In Cnnai'm, and -hamper  il in the .States. (Jf course, Minneapolis might be enabled to grind our  wheat in bond, the United States duty  remaining, but grinding in bond is a'  liit. ljolhersoiiie nnd .slightly expensive.  No. T see little reason to suppose wo  Would wish, in nny case, to put an  ex (.ior t dut v on vvhent for tho purpose  of preventing Minneapolis from grinding it. Tho millers^tliere have got  to h.i.ve it���������that's tie nu!) of the sif-  iinlion. anl Washington will have to  take o'T iho duty .sooner or later, or  lot. Minneapolis lose its flour trade.  Why .slioiild Caii'.ida rare lo give  much' in tin* way of reciprocity to  hnvo the dutv taken o'T presently?  U. ,S. TRUSTS POWERLESS.  "No. I do nol take much stock   in  tlio notion that tho American milling  interest could dominate the. wheat  growing interest in our Wost under  complete reciprocity. Trusts cannot  work in Canada to th'e detriment of-  farmcrs and consumer!-!. Our political  system is such that wo can knock oui  any trust in short order as soon as  tho people want it dono. Here Parliament 'has unlimited powers to regulate such concerns. You saw what  wo did with the American: Tobacco  Company Inst session? Compelled  thorn to give up their* monopoly system by arranging to tako away their  license to manufacture if they should  prove 'defiant. Well, nn omnipotent  Parliament can get at any trade combination in any way it chooses. We  nro not made impotent to defend tlie  peoplo ugainst monopolies by such a  complication of written constitutions  nnd intricate legalities as favors monopolies in the States.  "Yes, there might ho somo slight  temporary gain to our West if thoro  were complete reciprocity in natural  products other than wheat. But th'at  gain is scarcely worth bothering  about, miic'li less binding ourselves  for, and especially it is not worth  tho adapting of our business to a  treaty that might bo abrogated at  short notice.  TARIFF ON IMPLEMENTS.  "As to tlic advantage our West  would -.ain by taking tho -duties off  American agricultural machinery, nnd  other United States manufactures, I  toll you th'at the people of our Wost  aro willing to stand tho present Canadian tariff. 'Pho elections surely  showed that.. They are not kicking.  This Government has got the peoplo  of Canada everywhere to recognize  that the country enn't be developed  without n tarilT, and tho West is  awai'o of getting a fair share of the  expenditure th'at Customs* taxation  enables us to make.  "Reciprocity is not precisely in tho  line of our transportation development. Thc preference to Great Britain is. AVe havo protty well overcome tho difficulties of geography. By  tho canals anil waterways and railways tliat vve have constructed and  developed our.,commerce flows along  lines of latitude; not northward and  southward. We are fixed now to deal  with Europe, nnd especially with  Great Di;itain. There is an unlimited  market there for pretty much everything wo raise.  WILL ADHERE  TO   PREFERENCE.  "It is far from sure th'at reciprocity  with the States would consist with  tho rroferenco to Great Britain. Wo  arc not likely to stop thnt. I't pays  us well. If England should reciprocate it would pay us still better. I  am Dot predicting sho will. AVe can  got along finely anyway. But, mind  this, our interest is to favor .the  country that is naturally and politi-.  cally inclined to promote our interests, to.send us immigrants, to lend  us' money on easy terms, to watch  our Miece.sses with rejoicing/ Best  to child i.s mother. For all that,. I  am not saying tliat it would suit  Canada to enter into any rigid trade  agrooment even wilh Great Britain,  If sbe chooses to give ut. a preference,  well and good. If not, all right. To  get ono vvo might possibly bind ourselves to something, but I am not  suro wc would. No use halting beforo ono sees th'o cart. That is " as  good regarding th'e reciprocity ��������� as  regarding.1 tho Imperial preference  business.  CANADA IN GOOD SHAPE.  "Fact is, tho only right way to  sizo up tlio mind of Canada is to  consider th'at wo arc getting along  prosjicroiisly, that we are seeking no  favors from any quarter, that we do  not seem to need any, that our inclination is all to hoe our own row, or  paddle our own canoe, that wc are  a business Government for a business  people, which implies that wo are  not going to throw any good thing  awuy if it bo tendered on conditions  that we can honorably ami profitably accept.

"  "Oh, I'd be sure to be that flustered, ma'rm, that I never could do it."  "Nonsense." her mistress answered;  "thero is nothing to bo flustered  about. Slio is not, so very dilferent  now from what she Was -when sho  visited me before she married the  Duko, and you wero not afraid of lior  then " ;  "No, Ma'rm, but I do be so unaccustomed to saying grace anyhow,  and to say it before a stranger will  put me out so that I'll be suro to  forget,  it."  The lady might havo suspected from,  this remark what was to come, bub  it was only after thc event that it  Was clear to hor.

No trimming lends itself moro de-  lichtlully to tho newest lines of  dress designing than tucking. Combined with a liaudsomo braid, plain  ���������or ornamented, it forms tho sole decorative scheme of many a handsome  gOWi-. .  A stunning gown in a glonoun shado  ot rod has a vest of tha same color  silk chillon shirred at the bustline,  and falling over a girdle of red velvet in a darker shade. Above the  bustline the vest merges Into a littlo  ���������square yoko of tucked silk. Tho yoke  is quite narrow, and is linished with  crosswise strips extending to tho  armpits, and finished with* bands of  black silk braid embroidered in French  knots. On cither side of the vest the  tucked trimming finished with braid  is repeated on the bodice, and where  tho braid is stitched over tho shoul-  ���������der seams it extends over the top of  the sleeves in low elTect, being twist-  ���������ed Into fanciful shapes.  In the skirt sufficient fulness over  tho hips is provided by massing fine  tucks from the waist down to follow  the outlines of a pointed yoke. The  tucks are, of course, put in by hand.  At the bottom the skirt is finished  with a'tucked flounce headed by .bands  of "the braid. Besides being smart,  -tucks and such' self-decorations have  the advantage, of relieving the plainness of a one-toned effect, producing  41 variety for which 'costume makers  are ever seeking.  Il is surprising thei quantity of laco  ���������that is used upon street gowns. En-  tiro-hip. yokes, as well as yokes of  bodices, are designed of laces, dyed  to match the gown. A very pretty  gown in Havana brown taffeta intended for street wear has a yoke of Jyed  lace, irregular in shape, and reaching  ���������almost to the knees. Below th'o yoke  there are throe deep tucks, then comes  a deep flounce of tSne silk, finished at  tho bottom with' appliques of heavy  brown laco, finished with littlo meltings of lighter lace.  Thei bodice is shirred over a belt of  ���������brown silk, and the yoko droops in  Points over the shoulders, and at the  front. This, like the medallions on  the sKirt, is finished with palo tinted  laco ruching. Tho sleeves are formed  of tvvo pulls, finished with a cuff of  lace and taffeta.  Still another dainty gown in bluo  English* sorgo has a simple skirt,  trimmed with a wide band of blue  la'.e, laid over silk, and lined with  white chiffon. The jacket is a jaunty  little affuir, with rather narrow bolt,  finished with four bluo silk buttons,  -and falling below the hips in "graceful  ripples. Tho opening is crossed and  finished with insertion of lace, bound  with blue silk. "The vest of net lace,  is lined with blue chiffon, and ^ivon  .a jaunty effect by tho addition of tiny  littlo taffeta bows, placed at frequent  intervals,, and caught with cu.t sicel  bucklos  noath tho brim was a smaller wreath  of tho vrtiito flowers with a. cluster of  violets on ono side.  Japaneso embroidery makes a  charming trimming, for any gown  regardless of the material. It is,  unfortunately, very expensive and  for this reason enjoys favor among  fashion's elite.  Among the odd shapes in hats aro  also to bo found in tho littlo caplike effects mado of strachan and  beaver, trimmed with feathers and  silk ornaments. Th'ey are demure, 'tis  true, but the faco beneath tliem must  not only bo youthful,  but beautiful.  Applique trimmings of cut out cloth  and embroidery stitches make a  handsome trimming for both satin  and silk gowns, especially tho numerous shades of brown and rod so muc'h  in vogue. Much also is dono with  fancy stitching upon cloth dresses.  To bo strictly ccnime il faut the  stitched design should be slightly in  raised elTect.  There are sufficient stunning modes  however, to satisfy the yearnings of  the most > exacting woman. Tina  three-cornered toques lined with tucked chiffon and edged with fur, are  particularly fetching. A bunch of  tips or cluster of fruit Is usually, tho  trimming required.  Satin ancl satin finished materials  are more in demand than over. In  whito they have a shimmering effect  that appeals to many women and  has a nativo richness that proves a  boon to t'ho women who cannot afford many of tho luxurious trimmings of tho season. A design which  can be copied without too great expense has a full skirt with a series of  puffed flounces reaching nearly to the  waistline. The bodice'is shirred front  and back directly in tho centre and  the front opens over a vest of laco  trimmed with the tiniest of silver  buttons which hang loosely from  whito silk cords.  THIEVES KEEP INVENTORS  BRAINS ARE   SUBSIDISED  ROGUES.  BY  Clever mechanics     Are   Employed  to Devise Unique  Tools.  ELABORATE  COATS.  This is a season of elaborate wraps  for all occasions. The increasing fussi-  .nijsa of the tailor-mado jacket has  mado it necessary to radically change  ���������outer wraps, especially as far as  sleeves are concerned. Any design as  long as it is strapped and stitched  and trimmed with handsome braid, or  row after row of buttons is do regour.  There are so many, styles upon which  Dame Fashion has stamped hcr approval that it is impossible to "lay  down any general rule to be followed  in making  coats.       , ?;  In making an 'evening coat, as  many shiirings:and gaugings as possible, with .pleasing effect, should.be  ���������employed.-'���������'���������'-.��������� The Irish and guipure  laco coats lined with fur are extremely chic, and ono could not do better  than solect one, since some kind of  an evening coat is indisponsible to  every up-to-date wardrobe. If fur  as a lining proves too expensive, it  __ can . be effectively- subs li tu ted_by^_quil-  teti satin or an interlining of flannel  between two foundations of taffeta.  Charmingly simple is a coat in oyster white cloth, which roaches almost to the-bottom of the skirt. It  is finished with a deep flounce of the  same material handsomely embroidered in heavy white silk. Abovo the  flounce is a corded heading which  gives a very protty effect to tlio design.  A unique feature of. the trimming is  a deep surplice cape drooping almost  "to the Koad of the flounce at tho  front and extending in quito as long  a point at the back. This cape is  also embroidered along the edges and  the full' flowing sleeves are trimmed  with a border of embroidery and frills  of ochre and  cream laco.  Accompanying the coat is a hat of  brown velvet with high narrow crown  around which ore red velvet roses and  shaded leaves, combining brown and  green.. /  An innovation fn the matter of  finishing flounces for cloth suits and  coats is'��������� pinking. Tliis lias found  quite some favor among well-dressed  women,; but is hardly suited to substantial weai*.  Many vory smart gowns are made  with collars and guimpes of lace,  which lend a very pleasing effect to  tlio ensemble. Tho writer has in  mind ono especially cliic costumo in  groyoloth. The bodice was curiously  ijiiilt, tho draped front of cloth being a sort of a cuirass buttoned on  th'o .'ihoulders, with three largo velvet  buttons. The bodice under this cuirass was of accordion plaited grey  .chiffon, nnd this showed on tlio sides  and under tho arms. Tlio sleoves  'wero also of accordion plaitod chiffon  and wore puffed to tlio elbow.  The very full skirt was plain     and  long.   With'  tho  gown   was  worn     n  tSclinrining hut of grey velvet of a modified sailor shape,  trimmed  with     n  'wreath   of  white gardenians.     Under-  THE POKE NOT A SUCCESS.  Admirers of th'e quaint little poke-  shaped bonnet will nut welcome tho  news that th'e attempts to make it a  leading modo have not boon successful; it is true, however, and so seldom are such models "soon th'at when  thoy do appear they are rather conspicuous. Truth to tell, pokes aro  just a little sensational, and to wear  them requires not only an appropriate  gown, but an expression of countenance.   ���������   THE HORRORS OF WAR.  The Present Conflict Keeps Up the  Ghastly Record.  Other arguments,  of course,, aro   in  place.     War    is  waste,   irrationality,  colossal  folly.   In  tho present     stato  of men's     moral  development     these  arguments    are   even     more   effective  than tho one of which wc aro speaking.   They    aro   possibly,     therefore,  more practical,   and sliould bo     usod  for all they aro    worth  in the "war  against    war."      But the final  argument against war is found in its deeds  ���������its butcheries,  its mad charges,  its  mangled  flesh    and  bones,   its raging  passions���������in   it's  horrors   of  th'o "flesh  and  its    moro  repulsivo  horrors     of  tho spirit.  However, noblo the causes  or aims of any war may bo thought  to bo, its deeds are always, from, any  high   moral  point of view,  hideouslj  wicked.     How can any humane man,  any man of conscience and moral sensibility,  look  theso deeds  in  the face  and then consent to go and do them?  Th'e?c reflections liave been occasioned by tho war now racking in tho Far  East, where it has again been proved  that  "war is    thc business  of  hell,"  wliero  its  essential   horrors   havo  repeated   themselves     on  u  scale     and  with nn intensity that have mado tho  civilized world shudder.     If the facts  correspond     with    the    reports���������and  t'hoy are probably much' worse���������these  horrors have never been  surpassed in  anything bearing    the namo of     "legitimate"  war.      Put in essence th'oy  have  had   their  counterpart  in  every  serious conflict ovor wagod.  Tlio cutting down of a body of .six  hundred Japanese, who had raised  tho whito flag, by the Russians, in spite  of tho flog of truce, is indeed, if the  report be true, a ghastly tragedy.  But ovor and over again in savagely  ���������contested -wars���������docs-history��������� record  the violation of the White flag." And  how does tho action of the Japaneso  in shooting down a body of their own  men, who had proposed to surrender,  differ in spirit from that of Phe regimental commander or company cap-  thoy wero sunk at tho beginning of  tain who, to save his linos from  breaking, levels his revolver on a  soldier fleeing to the roar, and shoots  him dead if h'e docs not continue to  fight*? Aud 'how much baser, tell us  honestly, is this reported butchery of  six hundred men than tho stealthy  torpedoing of a groat ship which carries down to yawning death six h'un-  ured mon in one struggling writhing  mass? The one is "legitimate" warfare, the other is not; but whicli of  th'om, in tho name of simple sense,  is tlie baser?  Many of the blood-curdling horrors  enacted about Port Arthur and in, th'e  vicinity of Liao Vang���������-men tumbling  headlong in masses into blind ditchos  craftily set with sharpened stakes to  impale them, men dying with their  teeth' sot in other men's throats or  fingers buried in others' eyo sockets  ���������are only "legitimate" warfare, carried to its ' extreme savagery, and  ought to surprise no one who knows  th'o history of war.  Every gang of thieves has its own  inventor���������a man more brainy than  his companions, whoso task it is to  be ever devising new instruments or  plans for the perpetration of, crime.  Ho is, after all, the most fortunato  member of the party, for ho nover  accompanies his colleagues on their  expeditions, and therefore is seldom  made to suffer for their wrongdoings  Ono notorious gang, recently broken up by a very skilfully planned  ruse on thc part of the Scotland  Yard authorities, kept one of the  cleverest mechanics in London in  their employ, and for years he was  tha real originator of thoir long series  of exceptionally clevor robberies.  A SIX-LOCK KEY.  At heart this man scorned the  work, but through a youthful indiscretion hc had fallen into thc power  of tho leader of thc gang, and thereafter he was .compelled to serve  them, or risk exposure. He devised  an immense number of unique instruments many of which are now in the  possession of the polico. Among  theso wero a device for opening window-catches, an ingenious key��������� really six keys in one���������which would opon  nn ordinary lock, of whatever sizo,  and an apparatus for wall-climbing.

Quito recently it was shown that  ho had manufactured an almost perfect coining plant for tho use of a  band of coiners. Hc, it vvas alleged, was tho designer of a banknote  printing-machine which produced  Buch notes as no forgers had over  done beforo.

Unluckily  for him, ho decided to use the " machine for their advantage.  A FORGER'S LOST SECRET.

Further work was  stopped, for the inventor,- although  ho escaped from being implicated in  tho case, lost the secret of his own  Invention.  Tho shoplifters' inventor is a man  well known in "shadowed" London.  Hc was trained as a locksmith at  ono of tho largest firms of safe manufacturers,* and rapidly pro-ed his .  skill. Then, to release hlmseir rrom  certain domestic troubles, he appropriated a large sum of money which  ho had received for his firm, and vvas  sent to prison. When he came out  he gradually drifted into tho company of notorious criminals, and,  wanting other employment', soon  began to uso his knowledge in thoir  interest. From that day ho has  been the "shoplifters' friend." Ho  has invented a patent handbag,  which, although looking harmless  enough in tho hands of its pretty  owner, has a connection with her  dress, along which all kinds of articles can bc passed to thc spacious  pocket insido.  Another invention of his played a  prominent part at tho trial of two  shoplifters at Clerkenwell recently.

So cleverly made was  the kit that when the police-inspectors examined it they were at a loss  at first to discover how to open it.  A rapid folder was ono of his least  useful devices.

FIFTY DOLLARS A MINUTE  CARNEGIE,  THE MAN OF MANY  MILLIONS.  The Steel    Magnate      Finds     the  Task of  Spending  Them.  Impossible.  Each year it is becoming moro and  more evident that, despite his most  strenuous exertions to the contrary,  Andrew Carnegie will, to uso his  own now famous expression, ultimately die disgraced. The cause of this  is found in the fact, that, though ho  banking account increases so rapidly that it is practically impossible,  at least by his present donations, to  even get abreast of his income. * During the last ten years Carnegie* has  given in a manner which has astonished tho world, and yet ho has succeeded in parting with less than half  his income for that period of time,  while the principal remains still untouched.  It has been proved that the exact  amount of the millionaire's donations up to the end of May reached  tho colossal sum of $90,969,200, distributed through the different countries as follows :  United  States   .63,517,450  Scotland       :..  17,763,750  Holland     ...'.".      1,750,000  England and Wales         1,354,500  Dominion of Canada      1,016,500  Ireland*    315,000  Cuba   *���������          252,000  SbfetPOftfeTOOSm-fe  to  THE FARM.  to  tf  to  SSQ^tf^^tftftf^^  FEEDING ROOTS TO SHEEP.  In feeding roots to sheep it is important to get tho animals gradually used to them by. feeding a   small  allowance*  at first  writes Mr.     John  Jackson.       This    may    bo   dono by  having a small plot of Whito Olobes  or Groystones    or other lato variety  in the ground conveniont to pasture,  where tho sheep can run in and  out  at will, or by pulping and giving a  light feed night and morning, gradually   increasing tho quantity    until  tho full feed is reached.  Tho  late soft    sorts  are all right  distributes his fortune as no ono has  ������>r ^ fa������ or. early winter feeding,  over distributed a fortuno before, his   f������r fattening Iambs theso should be  inking account  increases  so rapid-1 fcd. m   conjunction     with   a   liberal  grain ration, tho cpiantity of grain  fod being as great as If thoy were  getting no roots. Tho advantage of  the roots along with the grain is  that lambs will .gain flesh very much  faster than otherwise.  Roots give greater results por bushel by being fed in smali quantities,  than by feeding sheep all they will  eat, especially in-the early stage of  tho feeding. The abovo mentioned  varieties of turnips should bo fed in  the early part of tho season. Later  Swedes are perhaps the best roots  for sheep, although mangels, carrots or sugar beets will fill tho bill  admirably, especially as the season  advances. Mangels aro much improved by keeping.*  Too heavy feeding at first is apt  to cause " scours, but when sheep  are accustomed to roots of any kind  there is little danger. A profitable  feed is perhaps about three pounds  per head per day, tho quantity depending somewhat on tho sizo * and  kind of sheep. I have fed Southdown lambs this way in the month  of ' November, making an average  gain of 19 pounds per head for tho  month, vthey having in addition to  grain and roots good clover hay.  If the supply of roots is unlimited.  Iambs aft.cr~ being accustomed to  them may be fed all they vvill eat up  clean of pulped roots, twice a day,  with safety. This with a moderate  feed of grain, with well-cured green  cut clover hay, will givo th'o best results. They do fairly woll with good  straw instead ol the hay.  Young sheep for stock purposes  may bo fed much tho samo way, regulating the quantity so as to keep  them growing: without getting too  fat.  Regarding breeding ewes, somo  people havo tho  idea that roots are  $90;969,200  TASK  IS  IMPOSSIBLE.  This, of course, is an enormous  sum, yet the amount is less than  four years of the steel magnat's income. Do all he can. Mr. Carnegie  acknowledges that ho has found it  impossible, so far, to make his donations overtake tho millions which  are added yearly to his fortune, and  unless he can hit on some quicker  method of getting rid of his dollars  it is very evident that what ho has  so sternly denounced will happen���������he  will  die a rich  man."  Mr. Carnegie's donations during  the last twelve mouths havo bcon in  excess of thoso of any single year  sinco the timo when ho first began  the work of getting rid of his fortune; but though he should keep this  up to the end of his life he cannot  possibly hop to materially lesson  the   amount  of    the principal.      To  bo ablo to work out for himsolf  some of tho problems of present day  agriculture. No one can learn to  think except by thinking. And ia  order to think ono must furnish his  mind with tho material ior thought.  This vvill bo gathered by reading and  study. "I think thy thoughts nfter  thee," said a wiso philosopher of  old. So, ia thinking ovor the  thoughts of others and making them  his own, will one learn to think.  More than this, tho farmer, is not  only an individual, who is to develop  in himself tho possibilities of tho  race, but ho is also a very important  factor In our economic and social  lifo. As such ho cannot dodge the  responsibility which is laid upon  him. Ho is looked to as contributing a degree of stability to our political lifo. This means an opprtun-  ity to make his influence felt, which  should not be neglected. More than  most men, ho is concerned in the  political and economic questions of  our country. Ho should seek to settle theso in a way'which will help  both himself and tlio whole country.  For tho necessary training and  knowledge to help him in this work,  ho needs to read. Ho must keep "in  touch with the most important  events of tho day, and understand  tho history and' government of our  country. All this will not involve  any great outlay of money or an  amount of-time beyond his control.  If these suggestions were carriod  out by farmers generally, they would  not only become better farmers, bettor citizens and better men, but life  to them would havo a larger meaning, and rural communities would  be tho more worth living in. And  moro than this, their farms and property would be. increased in value;  for values rest not in recti estate and  things, but in tho character and condition of the peoplo among which  they obtain.  0<XH*J-0<>0<>0<>_tO<X������>0<H3fcQ^Ofl  I   YOUNG  ,������'V*  FOLKS  t>0-0-C><>0-CK><><XXX><>0<>0<>0<X>0  PEACHES AND PATCHES,  SOAKING- FEED FOR HORSES.  So far as the health of the animal  is concerned possibly soaking and  wotting is advantageous. In England it is considered desirable to  soak chaffed straw or hay, as the  dry material sometimes causes colic.  It has also been observed that horses  relish soaked grains. Where hay  contains a considerable amount of  dust, sprinkling with water is advantageous. Hovvover, where horses  havo good teeth and are in a vigorous condition it is doubtful whether  this practice pays.  ��������� f   WONDERS BY MESMERIST.

It was Dorothy's birthday, and she  was.seven years old for the first timo  in her lifo.  She liad had beautiful presents.  Mamma had given her a silver thimr  blo with D on it, and papa had given her a lovely drawing-slate. Aunt'  Edith had sent hcr a book, and  grandma a dear little box of handkerchiefs.  But the biggest gift of all had coma  by express from Aunt Jennie.  And it was nothing moro nor loss  than a pink gingham dress with a  pocket in itt In all her seven years  Dorothy had never bad a pocket before;'and she begged to bo allowed  to wear tho new dress to school, thati  all the girls might sco the wonderful  pocket.  "But you can tako a holiday it  you like," said her mother, "and  stay at liome from school because it  is your birthday."  "No,. mamma," said Dorothy, f't  want to go to school speshly to-day;  and I want to cairy my patches ln  my pocket. And, oh, can't I havo a  piece of the 'sky'?"  "Ves," said her mother, smiling,  "as it is your birthday, you may  havo a pieco of tho sky."  You see, Dorothy's little school was  kept by two dear, old-fashioned ladies, who taught sewing as well as,,  other lessons. And the beginners in  the sewing class always mado patchwork.  And Dorothy was a beginner. Every  day she took four neatly cut pieces  of silk, and came home with them all  sewed together in a lovely block for,  her quilt.  Her mother cut the pieces for hen  from different colored silks, and, of  course, some wero prettier than  others. But loveliest of all was a*  yard of light blue satin which Aunt  Jennie had sent for this, very purpose.  It was sudh a fair, clear bluo, that  Dorothy called it her "sky," and  was always glad to sew a block cut  from it.  So on hcr birthday -she happily,  folded the carefully cut pieces of sky  in a bit of whito tissue-paper, and  deposited tfae parcel in her convenient new pocket. Her new thimble also went in, and one of grandma's  new  handkerchief's.  Then the (happy little maiden kissed  hcr mother and ran off to school,  which was only three blocks away.  As she went out of the gate she met  tlie grocer's man coming in.  'It's my. birthday!" sho saidi .for  she was well acquainted with hira.  "Arrah, is it?" he said. "Thin I'll  be afther givin' ye a token. Hero's  two peaches for ye. They're not  big, but they're ripe an' sweet, an'  they'll do ye no harrum."  Dorothy    thanked the good-natured  man,  and putting the peaches in her  now    pocket,    complacently    thought  how many nice friends she'seemed to .  have.  Stopping to talk to the grocer,  nearly made her late for school, but  by hurrying a little she reached there  just in time to march up-stairs in  the line.  Then came singing and other opening exercises, and at half past nine  tho sewing  class  was  called.  "It's my birthday!" she said, for  to Miss Katherine, "and I have a  lovely blue-sky block to sew."  "That's nice," said the teacher.  'Let mo see it."  Dorothy dived down into h'er pocket  but quickly pulled back her hand in  dismay. You seo, the {leaches wero  very ripe, and as Dorothy was not  in the habit of sitting very still, but  often wriggled about, and occasionally bumped against n desk or a chair  or the little girl next_to lier, thoso  peaches had just "Smashed themselves  into a jelly, and you can imagine  what the sky-blue satin bits looked ,  like'  Dorothy tried  not to cry,  but   sho  effective    use,    while not a fow    aro i  recent    times"  U<in  sh"11   I>0    Poetically withdrawn [ wfLlio������it seeking to incorporate    into  roved  of reallv|from  K8.vpt...

It  was dark under the trees ia the  avenue as Itoyce walked  tlirough  it,  and in  tho solemn  quietude    thought  over all that had passed.  He stopped just outside the gate,  aird emptied the money from his  pockets into hi.s hand���������it did not require two. There were exactly fifteen shillings and sixpimce, and Irene  Tresylian's locket. As he looked  at the small trinket tho sterness of  his face softened an-d something very  like a tear gathered in hi.s eye.  Sho had called herself hi.s sister,  ami though ho had contradicted hor,  she had been like a sister to him���������  until to-day. The Earl of Landon  and Irene's father. Lord Tresylian,  ha-d been bosom friends, and at tho  death of thc latter his daughter had  become Lord Landon's ward. The  countess loved hor as a daughter, and  Irene and Royce had grown up sido  by side, fast friends and playmates,  brother and sister���������until today,  when, coming upon hcr in tho oak  room, ho had discovered that the  child had grown into a woman. Her  face pale and tearful, her voico full  of its sympathetic sorrow, haunted  him as he sat there, . and almost  drove tho sting and remembrance of  his mother's reproaches away. Hut  they came back upon him presently,  and stung and lashed him. He  know that what she had said was  true, that she had lavished the wholo  of her love upon him, hor younger  son, almost to the .exclusion of his  brother. Seymour, the earl, and  Royce had never "got on" well together; they were totally unlike in  form and features, and mind. Seymour spent most of his time in London, taking up ono fad and crotchet  after another, and making each  serve its purpose. Ho and lioyco  saw very little of each other, and  when they did were just civil and  no more. The earl had possession of  the estates and thc Landon money;  excepting the countess' small jointure, there wns not much, not  enough of it, but ho would not have  given Itoyce a shilling, and Royce  would liave died rather than accept  it.  Now Lady Irene was rich, very  rich, and the countess had, evor  since the fair-h-aired child had become her ward, cherished a secrot  hope that Irene and Royce would  marry. There would bo money enough  lor her boy then, and all would be  well.  Dm, though she loved him sir. ouly  a mother can love her last born,  ' she was too righteous and too  proud to sacrifice Irene to one, oven  though he wero her own son, who  hnd lost his good name. It was hor  disappointment in him that had lent  firo to the passion, and barbed hor  reproaches with poisoned darts; for  tny lady, the countess, was ambitious for him. The earldom had  gone to Seymour; nothing but her  small income would go to Royce."  Why should he not, like his father,  carve  out a  name  for himself     with  ordinary kind, but its appointments  were better than usual, thc paint  wns fresher, and tho muslin curtains  at thu diminutive windows wore  whiter. On lhe. shaft; driving tho  big, lumbering horse, sat a young  girl with long, unkempt hair down  her back, and another girl walking  beside, one hand holding a red ahawl  at her throat, the other hanging  down listlessly.

The two men stood over him, panting and tugging at thoir swollen  throats.  Long Bill kicked him savagely,  then knelt down and dragged out  his watch and chain. In doing so  he started and drew back with an  oath,  and looked at his hand.  "I know���������I knifed him!" said the  gypsy in a low voice.  "We've done for him!" said Long  Hill in a husky whisper. "He's���������he's  dead as a herring," and he looked  over his shoulder fearfully.  "Not he! At any rate not yet.  Anyhow, you've had your revenge,  mate, eh? Aud if I hadn't given him  an inch or two of steel, I reckon  he'd have dono for ono or both of  us. I nover saw such a fight in a  young 'un."  "As strong as a lion, and as  game."  "Well," he said, philosophically,  "it's no use crying over spilt milk.  Besides, it was his own fault. What  did he want to try and best two  of us; two agon one? Here, look  sharp! We'd better make ourselves  scarco, for there'll bo troublo over  this business."  Silently and rapidly thoy emptied  Roycc's pockets, the gS'psy viewing  the smallness of the plunder with  disgust.  "Only this, aud him a gentleman!"  he exclaimed with an oath. "What's  this   'ore���������a  locket?"  "Put that back���������it's worth next  to nothing���������and the watch and chain  and a.shilling or two. It'll put 'om  oft tho scent.

Thoro  is  no  time;  some  ono may  come up.  Why loo'k thore !"  And ho ducked  down  and  pointed  behind   him.  "It's Madge!" ho muttered. "Keep  on your hands and knees, and crawl  till you get to them bushes. "You'ro  right about -. the things! I'll i*ut  them back."  He put the watch and chain in  their place, and the locket in Roy-cos  waistcoat pocket, and wont oil like a  snake in the grass.  The figure of Madge Lee stood motionless on the sky lino for a moment or two; then she camo slowly  across the common. Presently tho  girl who had sat upon the shafts  camo running after her, and calling  her. Madge stopped, but did not  turn lier head, and the girl came up  to..her side breathless.

"Bid you hear anything, Lottlo?'-'  she said, her dark brows drawn together.  "Hear anything? No. What's to  hear?"  "I don't know," snid Madgo absently. "I thought I heard something, but all is still and quiet  now."  They walked on slowly, Madge's  eyes bent on the ground. Suddenly  she  started- and  pointed.  "There's some thing thoro!" sho  suddenly, uttered an exclamation,  and flung herself down beside Royco.  "I know it!" she said, more to  herself than the girl who stood looking down at tho motionless figure in  siiont      horror. "Push,       Lottie,  don't bo frightened!

"I���������I am a friend!"  Ho tried to smile, and loosened his  hand, hut his fingers closed spasmodically on the alcove of hor dross,  nnd tore it, revealing the arm with  the biMid of crimson which his grasp  had caused.  She looked  at it with tightly-com-  girl,   and  she  turned  and  sped  over   prc-sod  lips,   and   a   singular  expres  sion in her dark eyes, and as tho  girl nnd a woman came running ovor  the heath, she turned up the torn  sleeve, so that it hid the crimson  mark, hor face growing for a second  as rod as the stain itsolf.

Canada exports annually millions of chickens to the United States and  Great Britain.  The consumption of poultry in Canada is increasing rapidly and the  poultry dealers complain that they cannot get enough poultry to fill their  orders.  One woman bought a No. 2 Chatham Incubator the first of March  ���������she had five hatches by July first and had four hundred plump,  sturdy chicks. In six months her Incubator had paid her $100.00, several  times its cost.   A Chatham Incub."tor sliould pay for itself each hatch.  We have perfected an Incubator ar.d. brooder. We believe it is now  absolutely the best in the world. We have sufficient capital behind us, and  we are out for the entire business in incubators. We know that there is no  other incubator that can approach the  This is our proposition : To demonstrate our absolute co'.-fidcnce in the Chatham Incubator  we will send one to you, freight prepaid, and you make your first payment in October, 1905.  Tlie fact that we sell our Incubators in this manner guarantees them to the fullest extent.  Thirty days' trial is a delusion and a snare. If you have good luck you may get off one hatch in  that time, and even then you arc uncertain, and if you reject the machine you will have to pay the  freight both ways. But with us you send in your order and wo ship the machine prepaid. When  it arrives, if it seems all right, start your hatch, and we will give you until October, 1905, before  you have to pay a cent in cash.

Rounding*     TJp    of   Three    'Cattle-  Thieves Near MacLeod,  Alberta.  Th'o duties of tho Northwest mounted Policemen are perhaps more variod  limn Hi at of any other cWcer in tho  world of lilvu posit ion. The little forco  of which ho forms a part, numbering  scarcely more than OUO men, havo  to police u vast area, almost an empire in extent, extending from tho  inlematio ul boun Inry to the Arctic  Ocean. Mis sfarlut uniform is a  synonym for law and order. Wherevor  lie rides lawlessness is kept in check,  criminals are pursued nnrl brought to  justice, the predatory Instincts of tho  Indian tribes am ropressod, and the  settler sleeps in perfect security,  though his nearest neighbor may bo  miles nway. The Northwest Mounted  Policeman's lith'o, active figuro is tho  very embodiment of Canadian justice, swift nnd unerring, a veritablo  terror to evil-doers. Whether engaged  in tracking a murderer, rounding up  horso or cattle thieves, persuing n  redskin into the very hoart of an Indian reserve, dominating tho mining  camps of the Yi^kon or paddling his  lonely canoe on the borders ot the  Arctic Sea, his conduct Is  ALWAYS THE. SAME,  cool, fearless und indomitable. Tlioro  is a food ileal of human intcrost in  the reports of the men of the Mounted Po ice. Cattle-stealing is a crirrra  they havo a frequent cxporio'neo witfli.  and it is often a difficult, thing to  prove. Sometimes, however, tho perpetrators are ctviig'ht red-handed. Hero  for example, Is un account of how  three alleged cattle-thieves wero  rounded up near MacLeod, Alberta.'  It is taken from tho report of Sergeant Pi;ier of "Ti" di>lsion:��������� "On  tho l.'itli of Ho. tunibcr, accompanied  by Constable Pennycuick, I left MacLeod for "Roe'.cy Coulee to investigate  cattle stealing, which h.ul been .reported to liavo been carried on for several  months.

Noticing several hides in th'e corral, and not wishing to throw any suspicion 1 watched  tho plnce carefully on the evenings of  tlio 13th nnd 14 th. Nothing happened, and no cattle were butchered.  On tho ISth wo wont about seven  miles north of Train's place and re-  -civod information that Train's boy  was seen that, day driving threo  steers, brands un' nown, towards the  I'ome.

A  local farmer had fallen on hard times  and this having affected his mind, it  wns deemed necessary to take steps  for his protection. A certificate was  obtained for his removal to the  workhouse prior to his being taken  to the county asylum. At his homo  tho .-.inner was placed in charge of a  keeper who had the misfortune to bo  deaf, and to him was assigned thr  duty of taking the farmer to ~t't I  workhouse.

Can Only be Cured by Enriching  the Blood by the Use of Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills.  Tho kidneys filter every drop of  your blood. The purity of tho blood  depend upon the kidneys���������and the  health of the kidneys depends upon  the blood. If your blood is weak  the kidneys havo not strength  their work and leave the blood un-  liltered and foul. If your blood is  bad the kidneys got clogged wiih  "painful, poisonous impurities. That  is what .causes your back acho with  tho dull pains or sharp stabs of sick  kidneys. And kidney disease is one  of tlio most deadly and hopeless  things that can attack you  only hopo is to strike without delay  at tho root of the trouble in tho  blood with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  They actually make new blood. They  flush tho kidneys clean, heal their  inflammation an-d give thorn strength  for their work. Common kidney  pills only touch tho symptoms���������Dr.  ���������Villiams' Pink Pills curo tho cause.  That is why thoy curo for good and  at the same timo improve the health  in every way.  Mr. Ceo. Johnson, of the village  of Ohio, N. S., gives strong proof  bf the truth of tho above statements. He says : "My son, now  nineteen years old, suffered greatly  with kidney trouble. He was constantly troubled with severe pains in  the back, and often passed sleepless  nights. His appetite failed, ho  grew weak, and could hardly do the  usual work that falls to thc lot of a  boy on a farm. We. tried several  kidney medicines, but Ithey could not  help him tiny. Then a friend recommended Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and  this was the first medicine that  reached the cause of the trouble. Hc  used the pills for a couple of mouths  and I am thankful to say is now as  strong and healthy as any boy of  his age."  There is no disease due to bad  blood that Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  will not cure, simply because they  make new, rich red blood tliat expels disease from every part of the  body. That is why they cure the  worst, cases of anaemia, indigestion,  neuralgia, rheumatism, headache,  and backaches, and the special ailments from ,which women alone suffer. But only the genuine pills can  do this and you should see that the  full name, "Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  for Palo Peoplo," is printed on the  wrapper around each box.

Shore-going people have rather a  vagiio": idea ��������� as to the exact meaning  of the .phrase "cleared for action,"  wbicK; Has occupied so conspicuous? a  place On Headlines in tKe newspapers,  says the Westminster Gazette. Many  seem to imagine that decks aro only  cleared?-*when, war is imminent, but,  as a matter of fact, tlio process is  part of tlio routine of naval practice. During th'o manoeuvres, for instance, to clear decks for action simply 'moans that all impedimenta, unnecessary woodwork, etc., is marked  in pipe-clay with' a big "It," meaning  that on active service articles so  marked would bo landed. If tho fleet  is at Gibraltar or Portsmouth sitflli  impedimenta would bo put on shore  in bonis, which Is, no doubt, what  Lord Charles Deresford caused such'  excitement by doing lately.. The  process is only nn cxponsivo ono wlien  news of tlio outbreak of Hostilities  readies ships nt sea or far from a  convenient port; for in theso clrcum-  stnncos everything superfluous has to  be thrown overboard. Until this happens th'e public iisny seo "Itrltlsli ships  cleared for action" on contents-bills  with equanimity  PURIFICATION OP "WATER.  Kindly   Offices  of   Sunlight, Aeration and; Sedimentation.  That tho water of lakes: arid rivers,  even though infected witn immense  quantities of refuse materials, is purified spontaneously and ..after? a certain time, if freed from all infection  returns to its pristine condition, is  now no longer disputed. What factors cause this purification, what part  must bo attributed to each,. and what  is the .mechanism of each? The self-  purification, of water is mucH more  easily accomplished when tho foreign  matter is broken up into small particles, this being determined by the  velocity of tHo current, the condition  of th'o bed of tHe river or lake, etc.  When the particles aro very small the  molecular cohesion with; the water is  all the greater, while tKe separation  of the matter multiplies the surfaco  of contact of the particles with" the  liquid mass; surface for th'e nutrition  of bacteria is also increased, these  bacteria assuming-the office of: demolition of the foreign matter. A  great number of bacteria, according  to researches ot Kruger and Frank-  land, are dragged to the 'bottom of  the precipitation of th'e solid matter,  in this way sedimentation playing an  important role in t'he purification of  water.  While it may be admitted that sedimentation is the principal factor of  purification in sluggish streams, in  swift currents the velocity, itself is  a purifying agent, carrying' away all  particles of matter which* could cause  infection.' Also sunlight and temperature-have-an-important-roloi-It -has  been seen that bacteria may bo destroyed in the water by sunlight oven  at a depth' of three feet, while temperature has a very important influence, there being much* fewer bacteria in tho Winter than in  tho Summer. Many organisms  have an action on tKo purification of water, namely, tho bacteria of putrid fermentation, protozoa, molluscs, crustaceans, etc. All  of these organisms grow better in  Impure water which must certainly  destroy a notable of the Impurities.  Tho part in purification which is  assumed by dilution of the foreign  matter is in relation to the mass of  pure water and the character of the  water sources, this action always increasing with distance from ' the  source of contamination. Also tho  movement of the-water, either'in itself or by tho aeration which is produced, has a powerful action on the  purification of water.   -4 .   SLEEPLESS BABIES.

That 10,000,000 of the people of  the United States are in poverty, either as paupers or as laborers pinched by the iron vise of necessity, Mr.  Hunter calls to witness an array of  statistics.  "TKo number of evictions in a  community," He continues, "is a  fairly good measure of tho minimum  distress. In tlie year 1903, 50,463  families in th'o borough* of Manhattan  were evicted from their Homes. Th'at  is about 14 per cent of tHe total number of families in thc borough. '���������  "As another indication, th'e number  of pauper burials should be cited.  (Everyone familiar with the poor  knows h'ow desperately tKey strugglo  to give a decent burial to their dead,  h-ven the poorest people Have friends,  politicians or others, who save thorn,  if possible, from this last disgrace.  And yet one out -of/every ten persons  who die in New York City is buried  in a Potter's field. I should say th'at  tho number of pauper funerals docs  not represent half t'he actual distress  of tlie community."  Mr. Hunter quoted reports from official sources to the cllect th'at ic  1S97 and 1890 IS per "cent, of the  inhabitants of New York State were  in distress. Ho "declares this figure  represents only the poor who finally  are helped by charity, and adds that  he would not be surprised in the  number'.-'of .'-.those in :distress in the  metropolis and in other large industrial American centres rarely fell below 25 per cent, of t'he people.  Mr. Hunter finds" in the fact that  2,000,000 wage-earnot-s in th'o United  States are out of "employment from  four to-.six months of the year additional data for his estimate.  He thinks that -an annual income of ���������  .460 a year is the average amount on  which a family of father, mother, "and  threo children can livo and keep  above the "poverty"  line.  "It is hardly to be doubted," tHe  social agent continues, "tliat the  mass of .unskilled.'.'laborers', in ; the  North receive less than .460 a' year,  and that the same class in tKo Soutb  receive less; than S300." ���������  Mr Hi rn tier declares that the conditions of want are increased by the arrival every year of 500,000 male immigrants, who seek work in the very  district where employment is most  scarce. He declares. that 1,700,000  little children are forced to become  wage-earners in this country when  th'ey should be in sdhool, arid that  about 5,000,000 women find it necessary to work, of whom 2,000,000 arc  employed in factories and mills.  "Probably no less than 1,000,000  workers are killed and injured each  year while doing their work'," he  says, "and about 10,000,000 persons  now living, if the present ratio " is  kept up, will die ot that preventable  disease,  tuberculosis.  "There must be thousands, very  likoly 00,000 or 70,000 children in  New York City alone, who often arrive at school hungry and unfitted to  do well the work required."  "Shorter hours and .".higher'' wages,"  h'e. suggests as a remedy for some of  these conditions. Steadier employment^ improved-sanitary-conditions  in workshops, and protection in  dangerous trades nro reforms which  in time will decrease materially t'he  amount of pauperism."

Mr. Hunter would make industry  itself pay tho necessary legitimato  cost of maintaining and producing  efficient  laborers.  One of tho great causes of poverty,  aside from insufficient, wages, in the  opinion of Mr. Hunter, fs th'o lack of  adequate provision for those who are  injured in tlie work which they undertake, or for the families of tliose  who are filled while engaged ln dangerous occupations.  Ho is an adbocate of the German  insurance system, which establishes a  fund partly paid by th'e workingmon  themselves and partly by th'e employers, for tho care of thoso who h'avo  been incapacitated by accidents. In  tlie case of death by accident, th'o  employer is' compelled to pay an  adequate amount? out' of h'is own  pocket to care for the family of th'e  workman  killed  wliile  in  liis' service.  "It is hardly humane," writes Mr.  Hu>iter, "for us to call a man a  pauper who has grown old by a life  of vigorous and honest toil. It is  brutal to call th'at man a pauper who  h'as lost his labor power in th'e form  of limbs, eyes, or Health while producing tiie wealth of the world, and  who must of necessity, after sustaining the loss, aafc" relief and resplto  until death.  ���������'This system of Insurance Is a palliative for much of tlio most distressing misery resulting from tliis social  problem.
