BOY TOOK HIM AT HIS WORD
Ho Thought This Book Was the Best
Kind of an Instructor and
A man who toils in a. down-town
building bad just hired a new office
boy. The young man, in acordance
■with the traditions about new brooms,
seemed eager to make himself useful
and tried to fill in his spare time by
straightening up things around the of-
lice/ This was something new around
•that office, but the boss bore it awhile
In silence, not wishing to discourage
ambition. After lunch one day he
came in to find that his desk had been
nicely cleaned, his papers neatly stack-
ed, and everything set in order. He
restrained his exasperation and called
the boy over.
"Now see here," he said, "you need-
n't try to keep busy all the time. Just
Kfay within reach, that will be enough
for tli® present How am 1 going tc
know where anything is if you insist
on cleaning up my desk? Now don't
you touch it in the future. If you
can't find anything else to do, get
isomething and read."
"I've read everything there Is
around here," said the scared boy.
"Then go out and get something—
get a book that will be instructive and
at the same time entertaining," said
the boss shortly.
The boy took him at his word and
returned with a piece of literature
with which he sat down in a corner,
lie did not stir agafci for hours, and
troubled himself no more about of-
fice disorders. His boss finally be-
came curious to know what It was
ttiat made the youth so suddenly ob-
livious to the flight of time and the
pricks of ambition. He glanced over
(lie boy's shoulder *nd read the title
of the book. It was "The Life anc*
'duties of James J. Jeffries."
Dog Saved Baby.
A fierce battle took place recently
near the Henry river, Australia, be-
tween a collie dog and a large eagle.
Three sons of Mr. \V. Parker of New-
ton Hoyd, went to bathe in the river
and left a three-year-old brother play-
ing with the dog on the bank. Sud-
denly a great eagle hawk, measuring
six to eight feet from tip to tip of the
wings, swooped down on the child
with talons ready hooked. It hit the
boy on the head, and returned with
the evident intention of taking him
off, when the dog leaped into the air
and caught the bird by the claws. The
boy's screams brought the brothers
hastily on the scene, but sticks and
stones had no effect on the monster,
and the eldest boy rushed for a gun,
but when he got back the eagle was
soaring away over the river. But for
tho faithfulness of the wise dog, the
child would undoubtedly have been
Women Are Gamblers.
T lie Rev. li. Mitchell of Chicago
has come out fiatfooted with the dec-
laiativ>n that woiueu are gamblers,
lie asserted that card playing by
members of women's clubs for prizes
to the purchase of which each mem-
ber has contributed should be pro-
"There never was a time when
card playing in women's clubs was so
prevalent. In many of the clubs it is
a practice for each player to contrib-
ute her share toward the purchase of
a prize. When this is done the wom-
en are gambling and each one be-
comes a gambler as much as if she
were playing for money.
"Gambling consists in staking on a
chance something that belongs to you.
It is an abandonment of reason. You
must admit that the sin of gambling
lies in the willful dethronement of
ARE GOING TO CENTRAL CANADA.
The question of reciprocal trade re-
lations between the United States and
Canada has provoked considerable
discussion and interest Whatever
else the discussion may have done, It
has brought out the fact that on the
Canadian side of the line the agri- !
cultural situation is one that forces
attention, and It haa also brought forth
the fact which it Is well to face, that |
on the American side of the border, |
thers is a vastly Increasing popular
tion to be fed with a somewhat de-
creasing proportion of food products.
This article Is intended to point out
to those who may wish to become of
those who can raise wheat, oats, bar-
ley, flax, cattle and hogs at the least
cost that the opportunities in Central
Canada are what they are seeking.
During the past year the official fig-
ures show that upwards of 130,000
Americans located in Canada, and the
greatest majority of these have settled
on farms, and when the time comes,
which it will within a few years, they
will b® ready to help serve their par-
ent country with the food stuffs that
its increasing population will require.
The Immigration for the spring has
now set in in great earnest, and train
load after train load of a splendid
class of settlers leave weekly from
Kansas City, Omaha, Chicago, De-
troit St Paul and other points. Most
of these are destined through to points
in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Al-
berta. The reports that come from
the different farming districts there
are that the spring is opening up well,
and the prospects for a splendid crop
this year are very good. In some dis-
tricts good homesteads are yet avail-
able. The price of all farm lands has
naturally had an increase, but it is
still away below its earning capacity.

ion Government has just published its

You Never Can Tell.
A certain 'cellist was once enow-
bound for three hours at a small rail-
road station. He unpacked his 'cello
and played his dozen fellow-sufferers
a request program with the result that
one of them took him to Europe for a
year. You never can tell as you bear
your precious fiddle-case through the
streets what magic casement may not
open on the loam (of steins), and
what fairy hand may not beckon you
within to do the one thing needful to

in the battle of Schumann quintet.—

Truly Wonderful Cat
A wonderful cat Is that owned by
Mr. A. J Gorringe, a tradesman of
Ditching, Kngland. Mr. Gorringe has
a bantam which lays her eggs in dif-
ferent parts of the yard, but his cat
never fails to find them. Sho takes
the egg between her teeth, places It
on the step, and rattles the door han-
dle with her paws until her mistress
arrives to take In the egg. Not on*
of the eggs has yet been broken.

Please Read These Two Letters.
The following letter from Mrs. Orville Rock will prove how nnwisi
it is for women to submit to the dangers of a surgical operation when ib
may be avoided by taking Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound.
She was four weeks in tho hospital and came home suffering
worse than before. Then after all that suffering Lydia E. l^ukc
ham's Vegetable Compound restored her health.
HERE IS HER OWN STATEMENT.
Paw Paw, Mich. — "Two years ago I suffered
very severely with a displacement—I could not
be on my feet for a long time. My physician
treated me for several months without much re-
lief, and at last sent me to Ann Arbor for an op-
eration,, I was there four weeks and came homo
suffering worse than before. My mother ad-
vised me to try I^ydla E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound, and 1 did. To-day I am well and
strong and do all my own housework. I owe my
health to Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com-
pound and advise every woman who is afflicted
with any female complaint to try it." — Mrs.
Orville Rock, R. R. No. 5, Paw Paw, Mich.
"There never was a worse case."
Rockport, Ind. — "There never was a worse case of woman's
ills than mine, and I cannot begin to tell you what 1 suffered.
For over two years I was not able to do anything. I was in bod
for a mont h and the doctor said nothing but an operation would
cure me. My father suggested Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound; so to please him 1 took it, and I improved wonder-
fully, so I am able to travel, ride horseback, take long rides and
never feel any ill effects from it. I can only ask other suffering
women to give Eydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound a trial
before submitting- to an operation." — Mrs. Margaret Meredith,
R. F. D. No. iS, Rockport, Ind.

For 30 years Lydia E. Pinkham's Vepretablo

herself who will not try this tfamous medicine.
Made exclusively from roots and herbs, and
has thousands of cures to its credit.
