By Gertrude Neumann. I think the most important day is when we ha\ our test because then vte have to think and it teaches us more. That teaches us to pay attention to the class and teacher. W had a test to-day and that got me to thinking. I like to have tests come when I dospending not know they are coming. I did not think of a test this morning and when you called the numbers out it was a surprise. The pleasantest da} is at the end of the term. I can study better when I have something to think about. I like to have the end of the term, yet I do not like to come back to school again because I think that I would not know how to do the ork. The most unpleasant school day is when we ha\ been naughty and it makes me feel as if there is something in my throat. I seems as if I could go up and have Teacher forgive me. I seems as if it has been cloudy and stormy. That is t,he most unpleasant kind of a school-day. Twice Proveif.

Second, in rheu matism in thigh joint, almost pros trating him with severe pain, which was relieved by two applications, rub bing with the liniment on retiring at night, and getting up free from pain.

The general public has doubtless not yet reached a full appreciation of the scope and extent of Professor Pupin's patent, which has been acquired by the Bell telephone people. While it nomi nally applies to ocean telephony, it will if all that is claimed for it be realized revolutionize the operation of transmit ting sound by electricity. Its practical effect will be to improve the operation of the telephone at an immense saving of cost. Will the public get any benefit out of it in the way of cheaper tele phone rates?
