Our houses here on the Labrador codst are built almost entirely of wood. Our old churoh, which was built in 1814, is nearly 100 years old. It is no wonder, therefore, that most of the timbers in the foundation are decayed and that the walls have giv en way In places, to that often dur ing a gale we fear an entire collapse. The new church will soon be com plete, and this autumn we shall be glad to move into the new premises. In more respects than one the new church will be an improvement on the old. In the former, the benches were without backs, and during the winter nights light was derived from candles and the space was limited. The new church will have benches with backs, so that the worshipers can sit comfortably, and the lamps a gift from a friend in London will not only give a better light, but will also help to decorate the church. To our Eskimos the new church is a great innovation; they call it "God's Igloo" (God's house). They have not seen anything better or more beautiful, and they believe it to be the prettiest place in the universe." Christian Schmitt, in the Chris tian Herald. TASTED JUST LIKE TURKEY Pathetlo Incident of Experience aa Polio Reporter Related by. Jacob A. Rile. Jacob A. Itiis, the brilliant author and journalist, was discussing in New York his experiences as a po lice reporter. "They were intense experiences. The pathetic ones had, indeed, such an intensity that they couldn't be used in literature they'd seem over drawn. "For example, one cold and dreary Thanksgiving evening, as I passed a famous restaurant, I saw a little ur chin standing before the area. Through the area gratings the kitchen, brilliantly illuminated, could be seen. The cook, in his white dress,' basted a half-dozen great brown birds. " 'Hi, Timmy I' the urchin cried, and a second youngster turned toward him. - " 'Hi, Timmy, come an' eat yer crust in the smell from this here kitchen. It makes it taste just like roast turkey.' " AN OLD WEL8H COAL MINI. The Welsh coal industry, which is now disorganized by labor troubles, is less than a century old. Until 1829 the small amount of coal mined in Wales was consumed locally. Then the passing of the London smoke act created a demand for smokeless fuel. Two membra of the Coal exchange journeyed to Wales and interviewed Mrs. Lucy Thomas, the owner of the Merthyr colliery, the largest then worked. They found her sitting in a hut at the mouth of the pit with a basket on her head, in which she placed the money as she received it from the purchasers of coal. After some difficulty and the production of the purchase money in gold they H?rsiiaded her to sell them a sloop load at four shillings a ton. This was conveyed to Cardiff on the backs of mules, and when shipped to Lon don sold readily at 18 shillings a ton. Pall Mall" Gazette. NO CAUSE FOR GLOATING. "I suppose you've heard that I'm going to marry Mr. Green," she said to one of her old friends. "No," he replied, coldly. "You don't seem to be very enthu siastic about it." "Why should I be? Not knowing Mr. Green, I haven't any grudge against him." Catholic Standard and Times. CAUTION.
