ALMOST CRAZY WITH ECZEMA “I, the undersigned, cannot give enough praise to the Cuticura Rem edies. 1 had been doctoring for at least a year for eczema on my foot. I had tried doctor after doctor all to no avail. When a young girl I sprained my ankle iliree different times, paying little or no attention to it, when flve years ago a small spot showed upon my left ankle. I was worried and sent for a doctor. He said It was eczema. He drew a small bone from the ankle about the size of a match and about an Inch long. The small hole grew to about the size of an apple, and the eczema spread to tho knee. The doc tors never could heal the hole In the ankle. The whole foot ran wuter all the time. "My husband and my sons were up night and day wheeling me from one Toom to another In the hope of giving me some relief. 1 would ait for hours at a time In front of the fireplace hoping for daybreak. The pain was *o intense I was almost craav, in fact, j 1 would lose my reason for hours at I a time. One day a friend of mine dropped In to see me. No more had ahe glancod at my foot than she ex claimed: 'Mrs. Finnegan, why In the world don't you try the Cutlcura Rem edies!' Being dlsgusti J with the doc tors and their medicines, and not be Ing able to sleep at all. I decided to give the Cutlcura Soap and Cutlcura Ointment a trial. After using them three days that night I slept as sound i as a silver dollar for eight long hours. I awoke In the morning with but very little pain. In fact, 1 thought I was In heaven. After using the Cutlcura Remedies for three months 1 was per fectly restored to health, thanks to the CuticurA Soap and Ointment. 1 will be sixty four years of age my next birthday, hale and hearty at pres ent. ’ (Signed) Mrs. Julia Finnegan,! 2234 Hebert St., St. Louis, Mo., Mar., 7, 1911.

Jsniel Fat-renhelt. . In view of tba abnormal weather which we have bad this summer we think a tribute of respect should be paid to the memory of Gabriel Daniel Fahrenheit, who was born on Scptem ber 16. either In 1736 or I*4o. It Is hard to say which. Before his day eev eral attempts had been made to mens are the beat level, not the heat, by tubes contain!* oil of spirits of wine, but it lay with a bankrupt merchant of Pantrig to show bow the feat could be successfully accomplished The first thermometers were made with spirits of wine: but the tngenl our Gabriel soon adopted mercury as h's medium, and so It has remained to this day. His Instruments speedily became known throughout the world and though a more rational tin hod of graduation has since been adopted, the popular mind still clings to the Fah renheit scale. Our own Royal society thought highly of this humble Inven tor and acknowledged his genius by making aim one of Us fellows. To the “Transactions" of the society he con tributed several papers.—Pall Mall Gazette. And No Strong-Arm Squad. The Greeks were piling Into the* Wooden Horse outside the walls of Troy.

The fifteenth annual convention of the Wisconsin Federation of Women’s Clubs came to a harmonious close at Green Bay. after It had been freely predicted that a warm tight would occur on the floor of tbe con vention over the redistricting plan.

Crosby, president, appointed Mrs. Charles Morse. Berlin, chairman of this committee. The delegates in dorsed the sentiment of a resolution pertaining to woman suffrage, but did not adopt resolutions. The next meeting place has not yet been decided upon and It developed that four cities are now in the run ning for the 1912 meeting. They are: Racine, La Crosse, Fan Claire and Janesville. Eau Cfalre and La Crosse are the cities being considered as most probable places for the next meet. Mrs, C. M. Cap leg gave a talk re garding the National Conservation oou gress which was recently held in St. Louis. Shiv pointed out the fact that there were thr£> delegates from the entire state of Wisconsin appointed to attend this big meeting, while other states or greater distance sent large numbers. "The state of Missouri," she said, "sent 453 delegates to the convention, and far distant Alaska had a represen. tation of 24." The majority of the delegates are hard at work In an effort to bring about an endowment fund of 110.000. Mrs. W. H. Crosby, state president of the federation, annum:ceil to the delegates in minding that aii of her personal expenses while traveling throughout tbe state during thv year will be donated to this fund A plan was agreed upon by the del egates ic have every member of the different :lubs in tho federation pledge themselves for $1.25. anS If this plan can he carried out the rais ing of the SIO,OOO will be assured. Mrs. Morris, the first president of the federation, announced that she would pledge the sum of $1,25 from each member of the Berlin Woman’s club, thus boosting the fund $25 Public Affairs Board.

Superintendent Nevin of the state fish commission Is in the midst of the very important work of collecting lake trout eggs from the waters of Late Superior. To afford opportunity for natural and artificial reproduction the state laws provide a closed season for lake trout during the month of Octo ber In i-ake Superior and during the month of November In Lake Michi gan, an<l during this period the super intendent of fisheries has authority to issue special permits o catch lake trout during the breed!! g season. In fishing tor the state only nets with a large mech o'. 4*4 inches stretch measure are usad, so that only large and fully matured fish are caught. The fish not necessarily killed are returned to the tyaters alive. An expert spawn tst.’er tn the employ ment of the commission Is aboard evtiy boat to strip the female of her ej;:i and to Impregnate them with Ihe milt of the male. The eggs are then packed in shipping cases and sent to the hat-'hlng stations, where they un dergo tho process of incubation. After they are hatched the small fish are re tained until well developed, when they are shipped hack and planted In tbe waters from which they are taken. Sports Cost University $35,000.

Canada has attained a startling growth. It seems only a few years ago that, amid dissension and rebel lion. she was struggling for confeder ation and responsible government. The patriotic fight of the great Wil liam Lyon Mackenzie Is almost Kur rent history and a great many of those who remember the British North American act of 1867 —the act which gave Canada a federal govern ment—are still hale and hearty citi zens f Britain’s richest colony. The first premier of the great Do minion Sir John A. Macdonald, is scarcely a figure of the past. He was active In the political life of hia coun try until 20 years ago The sound of his voice Is still fresh in tbe minds of Canada's most prominent, present day statesmen. The rapid rise of the Dominion or Canada, from a few scattered settlements to a country of wealth and population, has been re markable While th two great peoples of the American ontinent, those of the United States and Canada, have waxed strong under the influence of a progressive policy which Is peculiar to this hemisphere they have done so along widely diverging lines The governmental systems of both coun tries. which at first glance may seem alike and which are founded upon the principle of popular representation, are vastly different. The civic af fairs ot the United States rest upon three distinct divisions of govern ment. the executive, the legislative and the judicial, whi'e the Canadians, profiting by the deficiencies as well as the good points of th -- American constitution, drafted a government of narty responsibility In which the three great divisions of their neigh bor’s civic structure were welded In to one The Canadian political meth od Is the .newest development of con stitutional government and its origin and success form one of the most lnfei esting chanters of recent history. The keynote of the Canadian the ory of government is party responsi bility. All civic branches are respon sible to the party In power and the party In power la directly responsible to the people While formally the legislature consists of two bodies — tbe house of rommons at J the sen ate —the country is practically gov erned by one assembly, the house of commons, for the senate Is a negligi ble quantity In the practical civic op erations of Canada. The governor general, who formally presides over aft and who is the representative of the king, theoretically j appoints tbe premier, but. In reality, he always choo.-es the man whom tbe nar'ia mentary situation requires Nomin ally he Is chief executive of the Do minion. but in [Tactical government the executive of the Canadian people I Is always the premier. The premier must be a member of the hiuse and must bo elected to his seat from a regular riding or constitu ency In him are united the offices of speßker of the house and major Ity leader The members of tbe cab inet must also be members of the commons and they are elected to parliament by the people of their own riding The Canadian ministry consists of the premier and his cab Inet ar.d this comblnsi'on is popular ly known as "the government.” Wnen a Party Loses. When the Canadian party In power loses *tß majority In the house, tbrr jgh a split in its ranks over some pctitlcal question or through loss of popular confidence at an election, the opposition goes into power nnd Its offirt',; leader immediately and auto r-rfically becomes premier, the gov ernor general always calling on him to form anew government If the Canadlar system prevailed in the United States President Taft and the members of his cabinet would hnve to bp members of the house of rep resentatives. The Dominion of Canada is gov erned always by the party in power and the executive and legislative jmwer* of his party are recognized by the people For every act or pro posal “the government” or party in power is directly responsible to the house of commons and to the Cana dian people and if. In any of Its cots or proposals it fails to meet with the approval of tbe house, or the people, it steps down from power and the opposition tshes control as a party It is tecause of thL< policy that tbe liberal party went to tbe ptiople with the reciprocity issue. Constitution Almoit Perfect in he bes.nning of Canada's po litical life, just previous u> the war of mi*, the country was governed under tbe constitutional act by two distinct councils —executive and ieg v'.ative They were independent of each other and through abuse of •'rlvllgge begat, to think themselves ndependent of tbe people The pi •neer settlers, whose only thought -as for the clearing anu taming of ha *'’ lercess. cared Httle lor pa.- AT OTTAWA— Itics. Theirs was a fight against th* primal and tbe wild and they thought of the government only as a help tc them In their mighty efforts. Tbe men in whose hands rested the responsibility of wield,ng civic power abused their trust They gave valuable lands to political friends and spent money corruptly that was in tended for the settlers who needed aid. These abuses brought about dis satisfaction and distrust and the pi oneers began a fight for a better and more competent form of government a fight which ended year* later In b'oodshed and rebellion but which finally obtained for the Canadian peo ple the almost perfect constitution of which they boast today For years the prejudice existing be tween the French and English was an obstacle tc the treat struggle against privilege and injustice. Canada in those days was divided into two provinces, known as Upper and Lower Canada, and while Mac kenzie was fighting for justice in Upper Canada. M Papineau was struggling with the corrupt powers of Lower Canada The latter was de feated in bio peaceful fight and. fired by all the passions that liberty in spires. he resorted to rebellion Thus by means of bloodshed he succeeded in obtaining tbe suspension of tbe constitution of Lower Canada The rebellion spread to Upper Canada, where Mackenzie took up tbe fight, and although he was defeated and ex iled tba principles for which he fought won out in the end and the act of Union or 1840 gave Canada its first united and responsible gov ernment. The provisions of the act of union were by no means com plete and factions and dissatisfactions were the result until 1867 when the North American act gave to the land of the maple leaf a government un der which it has grown and pros pered. Provisional Legislatures. The provisional legislatures of the Dominion of Canada correspond in a great many ways with the state governments of the United States. In every way they resemble the Do minion parliament, having, with the exception of Ontario, a bouse of commons and a senate. The lieu tenant governor of the province stands in tbe same relation to the provisional legislature as the govern or general of the Dominion to the Do minion parliament The premier of the province is supreme in the pro vincial parliament, just as the pre mier of the Dominion i3 ail over. The power of the provinces regard ing legislation is restricted, however, to education, the regulation of the liquor traffic, the railways, the estab lishment of asylums, tbe mange rnent of prisons, timber lands, mining regulations and the regulating of mu nicipal laws. Many of Canada's most noted par liamentarians came up from the legis lative bodies of the provinces to the house of commons in Ottawa. In the main they are men wno work with one Idea ever to the fore —the ex pansion of their country’s wealth, the development of their country’s re sources and the betterment of the so cial and economic conditions of their countrymen. Independent and supreme In Its own Dominion the Canadian parlia ment, always loyal to tbe British crown, stands a separate and distinct body. In no way subservient to the imperial parliament of Eng'and. It has the power of making Its own treaties with foreign countries and since the establishment of the Su preme Court of Appeal. In 1875. the Canadian parliament has been prac tically .ndependent oi the British Privy council. Legislative acts re garding Canada are never passed by the 'mperial parliament unless they are stamped with the approval of the house of commons at Ottawa. A freer government than Canada’s nev er existed and it is even the boast of some Canadians that they enjoy more freedom than the citizens of Eng land. The Canadians are the most loyal, happy and contented subjects of the British crown and in times of war they have proved themselves strong supporters of the throne. From the days of the northwest rebellion to the recent clash over the reciprocity treaty the Canadian ship of state has weathered some rough seas Among tbe many events that stirred parliament to its depths the Manitoba school question stands out prominently The credit of Its settle ment rests with Canada's foremost citizen. Sir Wilfrid Lsiurler. Limi tations of space prevent the men tion of al! the storms that rough ened the waters of Canada’s political sea. but most important among the many were the Bering sea fishery dis pute. the Alaskan boundary ques tion. the Atlantic fisheries question and. most prominent among recent storms, the Canadian naval bill For tbe last 15 years the Canadi an parliament has been rxmarkable because of its wonderful chief Sir Wilfrid Laurier He hss grown e’rt in the battle of Canadian betterment and the grant c>ede of a true life have 'ouched Hi* locks with wh<‘eeeos Is of Scotch Origin.
