THE GREAT FOREIGN
In the lleur's Den.
There is living in northern Maine an old
man who, in his childhood, Liid a novel
experience which recalls the t iles of folk
lore and the classic fables. I!e passoi a
niht i:j the den of a wild bear, coming ont
in th wvirnini? unhurt, and much plea-sed
with the company he had kept. When he
was about 4 years old he was one afternoon

house, and the. two strayed toother into
They were rfot missed for s un" hours,
ami when a hasty search for tucTn proved
unavailing, t lie father and mo her were of
course preatly alarmed, for bears and
wolves were both plentiful in the woods.
The few scattering neighbors trere roused
and the entire night was given to the hunt.
It was not until daylight that traces of
the missing hoy's tricks were discovered.
These were followed by the aid of dogsC
and the rescuers were led tot lie den of a
fhe liear. which had its quarters under a
big bowlder in a pine grove nt . he foot of a

It has been our privilege to inspect an in
creasing number of hospitals, many of
them in t he provinces, l'eiv occupations
could have i-wsn greater pleasure or satis
faction than we have received from these
visits. How many a man and woman
groans, nt the winter months especially,
and wonders what to do to pass the time
in the afternoons of manv davs. How
many there are who become subscrilHTs to
our hospitals, who give an order to their
bankers for the payment of the annual
subscription, and who then forget all
about the matter. We woubl suggest, to
such people that they have no vet got full
value for their money.
It is all very well tosubscri!e to a hos
pital or to any other charity, but to stop
there is to show an absence of appreciation
little creditable to the individ nil It is an
old saying that he whopavs the piper shall
select the tune. So those who support our
hospitals are bound, not oalv in the inter
est and welfare of the publi and the pa
tients, but in their own interests, too, to
Income familiar with their methods' of
work, and to strive to possess some small
portion, at any rate, of thf spirit which
undoubtedly animates the la-ge majority
of those who constitute the ollicial st;iF of
these institutions. We have been im
pressed over and over again with a feeling
that a hospital nowadays is a cheerful
place, where most people are contented and
all are genuinely happy.
Kven the sick feel that they are safe
when they find themselves in a hospital
led, and as to the children, why, a chil
dren's ward has proved a pan.tli.se on earth
to many a little sufferer and waif, as all
our hospitals can testify. We would say,
then, to every governor, "Git full value
for your money," and if we are asked how,
we would say, "Dy making a point of visit
ing the hospital with some si rt of regular
ity, and so learn lessons in 1 fe, lessons in
suffering and, what is even more impor
tant, learn to appreciate the privilege of be
ing able to give, and moved to give, to the
eupport of institutions like these. Hos

Vanillin is the odoriferous principle of
vanilla, which is the fruit of a plant called
vanilla aromatica. Vanillic exists in the
vanilla pod to the extent of about 2 per
cent. These pods used to be very expen
sive, but new sources of vanillin are being
discovered, and it seems likely that the va
nilla industry will soon be extinct. Vanil
lin, which is the only substa ice for which
the vanilla pod is valuable, has lieen found
in asparagus, raw beet sugar and asafoe
tida; it likewise results from the oxidation
tit olive wood.
On a large scale it is prepa-ed from eoni
feriu, a compound which occurs in the sap
of the camoium of pine trees. The latest
source of vanillin has lecn discovered by
Ilerr Schneegans in the seeds of rosa cani
na. These are extracted wit a ether. Part
of the ether is separated by distillation,
and the residue is agitated by sodium bi
sulphite solution saturated with sulphur
ous anhydride. Dilute sulphuric acid is
then added, and Anally, after much wash
ing and drying, a brown o 1 is obtained
which in a few days becomes a mass of
crystals. Possibly the vanilla pod will
find a new commercial rival in these rosa
canina seeds. London Groosr.
A WOH AN'8 DISCOVEBY.
"Another wonderful discovery has
been made, and that, too by a lady in
this country. Disease fastened its
clutches upon ber and for seven years she
withstood its severed tests, but her vital
organs were undermined and death
seemed imminent. For three months she
roughed incessantly and could not sleep.
She bought of us a bottle of Dr. King's
New Discovery for consumption and was
so much relieved on taking the first dose
that she slept all night, and with one
bottle has been miraculously cured. Her
name is Mrs. Luther Lutz." Thus write
