subject to a rebate within a year. The
new book will be sold on a 2-cents a mile

WINNIPEG'S LIBEL CASE
Copy of the Article Mysteriously
by the Attorneys.
Special to The Journal.
Winnipeg, flan., July 10.The charge of
criminal libel against J. W. Dafoe, editor
of the Free Press, occupied the attention
of Magistrate Baker at the police court
all day yesterday.
Summarized the proceedings resolved
themselves into a duel between the counsel
on either aide, ostensibly on technical
points, but really on very serious issues.
A court of investigation is not competent
to decide more than the main question as
to whether a libel has been published, and
if so to commit the person against whom
a charge is made out to the assizes. Coun
sel for the Free Press was anxious to have
the whole case before the magistrate, al
tho knowing this to be impossible, their
object being to get their side of the case
pUt before the public and to have an op
portunity of republishing their charges
against Dr. McFadderi, so as to influence
Acting on this principle, they offered to
make admissions as to the writing and
publishing of the article complained of in
order to save the time of the court.
The magistrate made a fair offer, name
ly either to enlarge the case to enable him
to look into the points raised as to his pow
ers to receive this evidence, or to expedite
matters by refusing to accept it at once
so that a mandamus might be applied for
to compel him to do so.
At first Mr. Howell, Kansas City, for
the Press spoke of their hurry to go on
and of his intention to apply immediately
for a mandarous, out directly the magis
trate offered a decision to enable him to
"What am I to do." asked the very

MOKE STIMMEK HYGIENE
Light Weight Clothing Will Be Found to
Aid Greatly In Promoting
In a former number it was pointed out
that summer brings with it the opportun

the formation of some that need not be
dropped when summer ends, but may be
carried on, perhaps in modified form, the
Especial stress* was laid /upon the ad
vantage of the open windows, by means of
which the summer may practically be
passed in the open air, not only by the
leisure classes who spend months at the
seaside or in the hills, but also by the
workers doomed to live thru the hot
months in the large cities. The fresh air
is the first and greatest of the hygienic 6p-
portuniites offered by summer, but there
are others that should not be overlooked.
Of these clothing is a very important item.
Proper clothing for hot weather not only
adds immensely to comfort for the time
being, bttt may also .be made to aid in
the climb toward health. Light-weight,
porous garments, often washed, are good
in themselves without regard to tempera
ture. Most people would be better if they
were strong and hardy enough to trust to
them all the time. The thin woolen coat,
the widemeshed linen fabries and the
filmy muslins all give the air free access
to the skin, and permit it freely to give
off waste matter of the system.
Fashion oermits materials so airy in
texture for women that altho the skin may
freckle thru them on throat and arms,
the gain is worth the penalty. The light
weight is a great gain, especially to wo
men, who thus escape for a time the
thraldom of the senseless heavy skirt

GOOD FOE BOYS AND GIRLS
A Method of Making Their Vacations
Profitable as Well as
A novel but inexpensive bit of co-ORera
tion among a few families in our neigh
borhood last summer was rich in results.
In this group of families are boys and
girls of all ages, from 7 to 17, each of
them more or less interested in nature
work. W e have engaged a college stu
dent who is making a specialty ot the
natural sciences to devote an afternoon
twice a week to taking the boys out for
a nature walk and athletic training, while
one afternoon was devoted to nature
walks with the girls. This made the ex
pense very small to each of the dozen
families represented, while it enabled the
student to earn an honest dollar. The
children did not even know that he was
hired or that this was "work," but con
sidered it a great treat to go off in the
country with such an interesting young
man: Without attempting high science,
and avoiding technical terms, he taught
them a wonderful amount of simple and
very practical knowledge about birds,
plants, stones, animals, etc. The train
