The time his remedy will cure is when the patient has gone mad aud is having fits. If he can get to the patient then, be says he can effect a cure and is willing to apply his remedy free if the party,afflicted will come or send for him at the first signs of the fearful malady. Parties who have been bitten should be on the lookout aud be ready to have him by their side should they go mad.

Good man Lumber Co. ’Fh405one L Bad Habits are Broken by Substitution. Resolutions not to do certain things rarely amount to anything. The thing that counts is a resolution to do something. To resolve never again to lie is a negative method of self im provement; but to determine upon honesty and truth is a positive step. It gives a real standard and impetus. The way to avoid bad habits is to form good ones. The moving picture tfieater is one of the most efl ctivo agents of respectability that this new century has produced. It has put before young people and old, at a moderate price, the famous scenes of history, the greatest stories of literature and the wonders and glories of lauds far away. It can transplant the Hindoo from India to St. LouiB, aud the gorgeous processions of the Durbar or the coronation of a king it brings upon the wings of magic to the country village. In half an hour it tells more graphicaly than th» pen of Shakespeare or Dickens, the most wouderfnl tales that ever adorned the printed page, aud in its vivid portrayals are tears aud laughter, horroi and delight. No fairy carpet ever carried genii to scenes more weird or remote than this enchanted film; nor has the skill of the greatest artist ever been able to pat motion upon a canvas. As a counteracting influence upon habits of idleness and vice, the moviug picture theater is playing a part that is yet but dimly appreciated. The pool hall boy aud the corner loafer will be always with us and we shall find the young sport rubbing his chin againsl the edge of a bar as long as our Uncle Samuel gets a good share ol his revenue from the booze bazaars; but the motion picture has re moved temptation from thousands of amateurs, It puts something in the place of vice that is more attractive. The moving picture industry has been chiefly dominated from the start by the Motion Picture Patents Company, which held ttn first patent rights. This company with a practical monopoly asker for and obtained an official censorship. Think of that. It is like asking a policeman to follow you alout aud keep his eyes on you. Whether this careful supervision of films was for moral or pure ly busiuess reasons, I don’t know ; butit is moral, and it is goo< business, aud it has kept the moving picture clean and deoei.t. Habits or changed from good to bad most easily and tffectiveli by substitution, not by signing the pledge; and the moving pictni habit is a good one.
