A cTieene Roaat.
Those who Insist upon eating cheese
should take the precaution to cook it
thoroughly before eating. It is for this
reason that some people who are un
able to eat raw cheese find themselves
able to eat toasted cheese without dif
ficulty. Toasting the cheese does not,
however, increase its digestibility, but
rather te reverse. Its beneficial effect.
If auy, is from the destruction of the
virulent microbes which are present
and which are capable of giving rise
to symptoms even more distressing
than those of ordinary indigestion. The
best method of dealing with cheese Is
to give it to the pigs, as it is nothing
more or less than decayed milk, fit only
fbr a scavenger diet. Sanitary and

A lovely trait of Mr. Daly's character

lug a paper, and he always took the
paper with a look in his eyes as much
as to say, "We must nclp the boys to
get a living." It was a beautiful trait
not giving as charity, but buying
what the boy had to sell. Mrs. Gilbert

- A Blieplaeed Letter.
The transposition of letters in the
same word sometimes produces the
most ludicrous results. In "The Still
Hour," which was written by Frofess
or Theirs, is the fine line. "The still
ness of the hour is the stillness of a
dead calm at sea." A large number
was printed and disposed of before it
was discovered that "clam" bad been
printed for "calm."
