Pig and Point.
American shooting men are much exercised over a story that a sporting farmer nam^d Knittel, who lives near Brounsburg, St. Louis, has succeeded in teaching a pig to point game, and shoots over it. Our American friends have evidently forgotten the famous "pig pointer” which was trained to stand winged game and rabbits by the brothers Toomer, royal keepers in the New Forest. This “pig pointer” was a black sow whose intelligence and nose responded to a fortnight’s training.—Bailly’s Magazine. Marriage Statistics. The vital statistics prepared by City Clerk Entwisle, of Salem, Mass., shows that during 1907 there were 479 marriage licenses issued and 396 solemnized in the city, which is eighteen fewer than the previous year. The oldest bridegroom was sixty-eight and the oldest bride fifty, while .the youngest bridegroom was sixteen and the youngest bride fifteen. Seventy-one brides were older than the bridegrooms. The Fourteen Errors of Life. The fourteen mistakes of life, Judge Rentoul told the Bartholomew club, are: To expect to set up our own stand ard of right and wrong and expect everybody to conform to it. To try to measure the enjoyment of others by own own. To expect uniformity of opinion in this world. To look for judgment and experi ence in youth. To look for judgment and experi ence in youth. To endeavor to mold all disposi tlbns alike. Not to yield to unimportant trifles. To look for perfection in our own actions. To worry ourselves and others about what can not be remedied. Not to alleviate if we can all that Ibeds alleviation. Not to make allowances for the weaknesses of others. To consider anything impossible that we can not ourselves perform. To believe only what our finite minds can grasp. To live as if the moment, the time, the day were so important that it would live forever. To estimate people by some out side quality, for it is that within which makes the man.—London Evening Standard. Old Vegetables. Garlic, onions, shallots and leeks have long been cultivated in almost^ ail countries, and their origin is very uncertain. That of the scallion is better known. It grows spontane ously in Siberia. One finds chives in a wild state throughout the northern hemisphere. THE STORY OP THE PEANUT SHELLS. Ab everyone knows, C. W. Post, of Battle Creek, Michigan^ is not only a maker of breakfast foods, but he is a strong individualist, who believes that the trades-unions are a menace to the liberty of the country. Believing this, and being a "nat ural-born” scrapper for the right, as he sees it, Post, for several years past, has been engaged in a ceaseless war fare against “the Labor Trust,” as he likes to call it. Not being able to secure free and untrammeled expression of his opin ions on this subject through the regu lar reading pages of the newspapers he has bought advertising space for this purpose, just as he is accustomed to for the telling of his Postum “story,” and he has thus spent hun dreds of thousands of dollars in de nouncing trades-unionism. As a result of Post’s activities the people now know a whole lot about these organizations: how they are honeycombed with graft, how they obstruct the development o( legiti mate business, curtail labor’s output, hold up manufacturers, graft upon their own membership, and rob the public. Naturally Post is hated by l the trades-unionists, and intensely. He employs no union labor, so they can not call out his men, and he de fies their efforts at boycotting his pro I ducts. The latest means of “getting” Post is the widespread publication of the story that a car which was re cently wrecked in transmission was found to be loaded with empty pea nut shells, which were being shipped from the South to Post’s establish ment at Battle Creek. This canard probably originated with President John Fitzgerald, of the Chicago Federation of Labor, who, it is said, stated it publicly, as truth. Post comes back and gives Fitzger ald the lie direct. He denounces Fitzgerald’s statement as a deliberate falsehood, and underhanded and cowardly attempt to injure his busi ness, having not the slightest basis In fact. As such an effort it must be regarded. It is significant that this statement about “the peanut shells” Is being given wide newspaper pub licity. In the "patent inside” of an Eastern country paper 1 And It, and the inference naturally is that labor unionites are insidiously spreading this lie. An institution (or a man) which will resort to moral intimidation and to physical force, that will destroy machinery and burn buildings, that will maim and kill if necessary to ef fects its ends, naturally would not hesitate to spread falsehood for the same purposes. We admire Post. While we have no enmity toward labor unions, so long as they are conducted in an hon est, “live-and-let-live” kind of a way. we have had enough of the tarred end of the stick to sympathize thor oughly with what he is trying to do He deserves support. A man like Post can not be killed, even with lies. They are a boomerang every time Again we know, for hasn’t this wea pon, every weapon that could be thought of, been used (and not sim ply by labor unions) to put us out of business, too? 1 am going to drink two cups of Postum every morning from this time on, and put myself on a diet of Grape Nuts. Bully for Post!—Editorial in JV A merican Journal of Clinical Medicine, *For the;C Hi Ld re n| A WONDERFUL LAND. Oh, Grandma-town is a wonderful land, With paths that lead to—everywhere; Where children wander hand in hand, Some silken shod, some little feet bare. There are stories for boys and stories for girls. Of fairies and flufhes and “boog-ley i boos,” Of little Bo-Peep with her hair in curls, And Cinderella witii tiny glass shoes. There are kisses for bruises and hugs for pains, And the sweetest of 'cookies to drive away tears; j' There are walks that lead through flowery lanes, And lullaby songs that banish fears. There are stores of goodies in Grandma town, A room full of dollies short and tall. Or animal toys with soft coats of brown, And there’s grandma herself, which is best of all. —Annabel Hadley, in Youth’s Companion. . CHERRY ANb PEEP. I think I must tell you about my two canaries, Cherry and Peep. Cher ry has brown spots on his tail, and Peep is all yellow and has a very bad temper. When Cherry begins to sing Peep flies and pecks at him. One morning I went in the sitting room to get a book and I saw Cherry lying half dead on the bottom of the cage, while Peep was pulling his tail feathers out as hard as she could. I took Cherry out of the cage and put him on a bed of cotton in a box. In a week he was well again and his tail feathers grew very fast. Peep and Cherry have not quarreled since, but have lived together like good friends. — Katharine Goodridge, in the New York Tribune. SERENA. Softly, silently, snow surrounded Shakertown. Sabrina Sedley’s sabots seeming shabby, she sent Sister Serena shop ping. Saucepans, spoons, soap, sheeting, shoes secured, Serena shyly sought some soft, silken surah. Samuel Seaton, salesman, sensibly suggested salmon shades, sincerely solicitous silks should suit Serena, so sweet seemed she. She saw Samuel’s suggestion sound, salmon suiting seasonably Shakertown socials, so she selected several shades. Sabrina Sedley spoke scornfully, severely, sensoriously. She said Se rena’s silks, sealskin sack, sleek, shining satins seemed such selfish stillness. Sensibly, silent, Serena sought Sal ly Sanborn, seamstress. Shakertown socialists sending sum mons soon, some scores sought Ste phen Sedley’s, Serena's sire’s sitting room. Sister Sabrina served supper, Sally shyly serving salads, seed cakes salt ed. Seraphic sounded Serena’s sera phine, soothing sad souls. Sweetly she sang sentimental songs, Samuel Seaton softly singing some sentences. So Samuel secured Serena, sincerely satisfied.—Youth's Companion. SIX THINGS BEHIND. "Rufus,” said his mother, "did you mail the letter I gave you last evening?” “Oh, mother, I forgot it! I meant to, but just then I had to go and get some new shoe strings, so it went out of my mind.” “Didn’t I speak of those strings yesterday?” “Yes; but just then father called me to ask if I had weeded the pansy bed the night before.” “And1 had you?” “No, mother, I was just writing the letter you said must go to grand ma—” “I thought you were to write that on Saturday.” “I meant to, but I had to do some examples that I didn’t do on Friday, so I hadn’t time.” “Rufus,” called his brother, "did n’t you nail the broken slat on the rabbit pen yesterday?” “Oh!” Rufus sprang up in dismay. "I was just going to, but I hadn’t watered the house plants, and I went to do that, and that—” “The rabbits are all out.” Rufus hastened to join in the hunt for the pets. In the course of his search he came upon two tennis rack ets which he had “meant to” bring in the night before, and they were in bad condition. “There now! It will cost ever so much to get these strung up. Why didn’t t take them in, anywhere? I remember I hadn’t locked the stable door when father called me, and then I hurried to do it before he asked me again.” Later in the day Rufus, with a pen itent face, brought to his mother the letter which should have been mailed. During the rabbit hunt it had slipped out of his pocket, one of his broth ers having found it in the damp clov er, and it was now a sorry looking missive.—Sunday School Messenger. ON MOUNT BEACON. Perhaps you would like to hear about my trip to Mount Beacon. Four of us—my sister, a couple of friends and myself—set out to climb the mountain on foot. From Newburg we ferried over to Fishkill, and then took a trolley to the base of the mountain. We found ourselves at the foot of the incline railway, the cars .of which are not running now, and as we didn’t know where to find the trail we started to climb up be side the traffic. This incline is said to be the steepest in the world, and you can imagine the difficulty we had in crawling over the rocks and ob structions of that formidable slope. I couldn’t say how long it took us to reach the top, but we rested about every five minutes, and traveled very slowly besides. The hotel and cot tages were all closed and we had the place to ourselves. After admiring the view and walking around a lit tle we discovered a rustic summer house, where we ate the luncheon we had brought. Wandering around afterward we came across an old man who lives there as caretaker during the winter. His only companions are g dog and a cat. He seemed glad to see us, and talked about his life up there. He showed us his provisions for the win ter, neatly packed away in a cup board, remarking that he wasn’t go ing to be caught unprepared fpr a storm. We were all thirsty and he gave us some water to drink. Al though it was very old and stale we appreciated his kindness and pretend | ed we liked it. He showed us where <o take the easiest path down the mountain, and as it was getting late we prepared to leave. We did not go, however, till we had taken a last look at the setting sun, which cast a long red stream of light over the Hudson below. The#dusk was gath ering as we began to descend the path, and when we were half way down one of the boys, who had brought his cornet, played a farewell song, the sound reverberating far up along the purple hills.—Mary Can non Andrews, in the New York Tri bune. A LESSON IN SELF-CONTROL. One day Janie was down in the yard helping mamma to hang out the clothes. To be sure, Janie wasn’t big enough, to help very much. She couldn’t lift even one end of the heavy basket. But she could hand mamma the towels and small pieces, one at a time, and pick up clothes pins that dropped and be ready to run errands. She enjoyed helping mamma as much as she could, if she wasn’t very big, and she meant to help still more when she was older. Pretty soon they heard baby May laughing the merriest little laugh. They had left her asleep upstairs, and there were so many folks in the house that they thought she would be well taken care of. But papa u busy in the kitchen, thinking Pony would play with baby when she awoke, while Dear and Polly, think ing big sister was in charge, had gone oft to carry out certain plans of their own. So, as often happens, what was everybody’s business proved to be no body’s business, and here was baby May standing all by herself, away up at the head of the long, back stairs, throwing down clothespins as fast as she could! What fun rhe was hav ing! Every time she threw one down she stood on her tip-toes and lurched forward until it seemed as though sh^1 would surely follow it down the long flight. How she laughed and crowed at the bouncing, rattling noise they made! But mamma and Janie did not feel at all like laughing. Janie would have screamed out in terror when she saw the precious baby in such dan ger, but one look from mamma’s white face made her stop before she began. “Hush!” said mamma quietly. "Not a word, not a sound of fear.” Then, as fast as she could without startling baby, she hurried across the yard and up the stairs, talking cheer ily to little May all the while, calling her all the pet names in the diction ary of baby talk, just as she was used to. Baby thought it was all a part of the game, and crowed and shouted, and threw dozens of clothespins down on her smiling mamma. She didn’t know what a prayer there 'was be hind that smile, nor that those arms were opened wide to catch her if she should fall before the stair top was reached. At last she was caught up and hugged close to a heart full of thanksgiving, and Janie, feeling rath er limp after those moments of sus pense, was glad to creep into that embrace also. "Little daughter,” said mamma, “learn self-control from this experi ence. If you or I had cried out or frightened baby by letting her see that we were frightened, she would have started and fallen down those long stairs, without a doubt. The people who do brave deeds and who save lives are not the ones who scream the minute anything goes wrong. A man or woman, or even a little child, can stay brave and calm, and think what is the wisest thing to do and how to keep others from becoming frightened, and so be very, very helpful. But one who screams and behaves foolishly does no good at all, and may do very great harm by frightening other people.”-— San Francisco Call. Radio activity of minerals may be tested by their effect upon a photo graphic plate, which will show shad ows of metallic objects placed be tween it and a specimen of uranium mineral. Professor E. E.

Every photographer knows that singular differences exist in the ac tinic action of light on succeeding days which, so far as general appear ances go, seem to be equally favor able for photographic purposes.

HOUSEHOLD i , AFFAIRS ROTATING THE SERVANTS. A woman who is particularly suc cessful in the management of her ser vants has adopted the plan of rota tion in office. When engaging them she warns them that she will expect them to change about from time to time. The plan works admirably, she says, the chief gainer being the cook, who finds it a great relief to escape from her everlasting fires. — New York Tribune. GAS COOKER. Every woman who uses a gas stove should look about the house furnish ing departments at the various appli ances provided for the saving of fuel. One of the newest is a triangular gas cooker which lies flat on the top of one burner of a range or flat stove and which distributes the heat from the one burner to three openings. These openings will accommodate three cooking dishes of good size or two dishes and a flat iron and all the work is done with one burner. The nests of stewpans which come in agateware are another device for making one burner do the work of two or three or four. The dishes are shaped to fit together when placed together over a single opening.—New York Sun. — HOW TO WASH SILKS. Prepare some soap jelly by shred- ! ding soap finely and dissolving it in boiling water. To a bowlful of luke warm water add enough soap jelly to make a lather and wash silk by squeezing. Rinse in lukewarm water, with salt in if colored, to prevent color coming out. Then in cold water, to which has been added a tablespoonful of alcohol. This will make the silk bright. If dead white, add a little blue to the cold water also. Roll in cloth and then iron. Iron under a cloth first with mod erately warm iron to prevent discol oration. Then iron silk on both sides till dry, finishing on right side. Air. Black silk -'ill be made a better color by putting it through strong tea and blue water after washing.—Everyday Housekeeping. TO SWEEP A ROOM. To sweep a room is little—but to get it ready for sweeping takes some time. Each upholstered piece of furni ture should be carefully brushed and plain polished surfaces wiped with a slightly damp cloth, then rubbed with a dry one and moved out of the room. A paint brush is excellent to re move the dust that will lodge in carved parts, or if in crevices a very tiny brush or a wooden skewer can be used. If there are mouldings at the top of the wall, use a long-handled brush if it is perfectly clean. If it isn’t, tie a duster over it. Brush thd ceilings and walls in the same way. | Do not open the windows till thd actual sweeping is finished, or the current of air will scatter the dirt over the room again. Sprinkle salt or tea leaves on the floor and work from the corners tel the centre of the room. The stroke should be long, the broom always oh the floor pushing the dirt before it, not setting it in motion by swinging it around.—New York Herald. Chocolate Junket Ice Cream—Melt two squares chocolate, add one-half cup sugar and one cup milk; let cook until smooth, then stir in slowly three cups milk; when lukewarm add one junket tablet dissolved in a little cold water, .then let harden. Whip one-half pint cream with one-half cup sugar and one teaspoonful vanilla, add to the other mixture and freeze. Macaroon Custard — Take one quart milk, set it on to boil; mix one-half tablespoonful of butter and three of flour, and stir into the boil ing milk; beat the yolks of six eggs with one-half cup of sugar; stir into the milk and take from the fire tc cool. Flavor with orange extract. Now crumble one dozen macaroons over the top of the dish and pile on meringue. Southern Mashed Potatoes—Take white potatoes. Boil and mash them. Put in good-sized piece of butter, pep per and salt. Then add milk and beat them with a spoon same as you would beat cake, till they are fine and white. Then put them onto a dish, and over the top spread tho yolk of an egg, beaten very light, and set in the oven to brown. When served put sprigs of parsley round .the edge of the dish, and have the three colors, yellow, white and green. Pan Dowdy—Pare and slice tart apples enough to fill, about two inches deep, a flat earthen or tin pan. To three quarts of apples add one cup of sugar, one grated nutmeg, one cup of cold water, and butter the size of a walnut. Cover with plain piecrust (having the crust about an inch thick), and bake slowly .two and one half hours. Then cover and set where it will keep hot one hour. Serve with sugar and cream. When done the apples will look red. t Mining has always been the tradi tional industry in Mexico because of the rapidity with which fortunes were made. The recent depressions in this industry have brought agriculture to the fore. The forest service has turned 300 Angora goats loose on mountain slopes in Western States, as an experi ment to keep the weeds from the fire breaks. The houses of England, if placed in a line, would reach 27,000 miles. A City’s Name. It Is a disgrace and a shame that in a city like Los Angeles, populated by 300,000 educated Americans, the very name of the town they live in and are proud of and have helped to make should be wife-beaten at their daily hands. Even if late, it is time now to make a crusade for the official pronounciation which will be followed by every self-respecting per son with the fear of God and the love of California before his eyes. And that’s easy to set and easy to get: Loce Ang-el-ess.—Out West. | Old Country Dance. The cushion dance was originally an old country dance in triple time, which was introduced into court at the time of Elizabeth. The dance was very simple. A performer took a cushion and after dancing for a few ' minutes stopped and threw the cush ion before one of the spectators. The one so selected had to kneel on the cushion and allow the dancer to kiss her. After which he repeated the dance. WHEN YOUK HACK ACHES SUSPECT THE KIDNEYS. Backache is kidney ache in most cases.

In an uptown restaurant Tip asked the tall Danish waiter if the boycott on meat was making more people eat vegetables. “We waiters hear and read about the boycotters, but New York people would eat meat If it cost a dollar a pound,” said Hans. Tip then asked about people who never eat meat, and Hans quickly said: “These vegetarians all look sickly, and are most cranky. They eat beans baked in pork grease, cab bages cooked with corned beef, spinach, rice, eggs and pies with crust made out of hog’s lard and beef leaf. One talked me into it, and I tried vegetables only for three days. I would sit down and eat all I could hold, and at twice the expense of beef and potatoes, and an hour’s work made me weak and as hungry as ever. A waiter can’t stand on his feet without meat to eat.
