nothing monotonous about that trip
Never shall I forget one particular cold
bitter dawn, when in the thick of driv

our small anchor.
"The Japanese crawled under a com
munal rice mat and went to sleep. I
joined them. and for several hours we
dozed fitfully. Then a sea deluged u:
with icy water and we found severa
inches of snow on top of the mat.
"It soon became a case of swamping
at our anchor. Seas were splashing or

constantly. And still my fshermai
crew eyed the surf battered shore ani
"At last, after many narrow escape:

For'ard, as the boat's head paid off, we
set a patch of sail about the size of a

-Dogs That Resemble Bears.
It bas already been noted by scieu
tists that certain mountain dogs have
hapes and assume attributes rese~m
bling those of a bear. Among these
logs the sheep dog of the Pyreneet
bears a closer resemblance to the beal
than most others. Although he Is sel
:lomn over twenty inches high, his bones
are very massive and his muscles ex
reeptionally developed. His fur is
thiek. consisting of long, fine, silki
hair, either black, dun colored or gray.
His head is !arge and the nose taper
lag, the eyes small, but sharp ant
lustrous and his ears always "atten
tire."' The toes and the base of the
feet are elongated and flat. The tai
[s very short or even entirely missing,
and by his manuner of climbing the
abrupt mountain slopes he may easily
be mistatken for a young bear.
Why Dreams Come True.
There is a scientific explanation of
:e fact that illness, at least, can be
~ortold in dreams. The theory is that
hen a man is dreaming his mind Is
nore sensitive than In his waking
ours, for the simple reason that his
ictual surroundings are not engaging
my of the mind's attention. Thus it
aappens that when some disease has
set In the-.maa awake does not feel it
n its earliest stages, although the ac
ive mind in a sleeping body does feel
kt. The sleeper dreams, let us say, that
c is suffering some complaint of the
eg, and two or three days later, the
lisase having developed, he finds that
a really has got a bad attack of rheu'
natism. Harvey, who disecvered the
ilrculation of the blood, records having

n his left thigh, on a place where a

DANGER FROM 6RUPPE
Lies in That Cough and Weak
Grippe, pleurisy, pneumonia, these
are greatly to be feared at this time
of the year.
To prevent grippe from being fol
lowed by either pleurisy or pneumo
nia, it is important to drive the last
traces of it out of the system quickly.
Our advice is to take Vinoa, our
delicious cod liver and iron prepara
tion without oil, and get your strength
and vitality back quickly.
- Mrs. A. A. Grabill, of Strasburg,
Va. says: "Grippe left me weak, run
down and, with a severe cough, from
which I suffered four years. I tried
different remedies, but nothing seemed
to do me any good until I took Vinol,
from which I received great benefit.
My cough is almost entirely gone, and
I am strong and well again, and I am
glad to recommend Vinol to others
who suffer as I did."
Try Vinol with the certainty
that If It does not benefit
you we will give back your money.

Expectancy of Life.
-All insurance is calculated upon the
probable length of time a person has
to live. This is called the average ex
pectancy. Many elaborate tables have
been made -up by the insurance com

quently they vary. slightly. The Brit
ish life annuity tables, a fair calcula
tion, show that a man. of fifty -has a
natural expectancy of living 21.2 years,
a woman of the same age 23.5 years;
at sixty his expectancy is 14.8 years.

It is almost a 4,000 to 1 bet..that you
don't know you bare- a sixth sense.
But you have. nevertheless. It is
known as the sense of equilibrium.
The sixth sense is located in the
semicircular canals of - the inner ear.
and whenever a person is in danger
of falling or losing his equilibrium- a
warning message is commubleated to
the brain. For years -physiologists
have been puzzled to know the func
tion of these canals, because it was
proved definitely that they had nothing
to do wit;' he sense of hearing or the
proper worsing-of the auricular organ.
Thus they came to be considered as
semicircular tubes, almbst at right an
gles to one another and full of a clear

Steeplejacks and- other workers on
high buildings who finally lose their

their sense of equilibrium. Exami

have shown that their semicircular
glands were diseased. It was largely
