Pain has been explained as an ac companiment of the Promethean spirit of life, which, in perceptible haste to proceed upon its journey, takes the most ready and efficacious path on ward, heedless of what It breaks and crushes on the way. But pain is rather an impulse within the spirit of life. Pain is its conscience urging it on. Unless we were pricked on by pain we should %vish to stand still, con tent with our own satisfaction, meanly Indifferent to higher pleasures; with out pain all life might have been con tent to house itself in low animal forms and wallow in bestiality, ease and lust. It may be that the onward progress might have been accom plished without pain, we might have been whirled upward, insensible satel lites, toward the universal goal. But we have received the privilege of con sciously sharing in the upward jour ney. Each onward movement must be a wrench from the past, each momeut a parting, each step an eternal fare well. These noble inconsistencies are tasks imposed by pain.—From the At lantic. Dying Buck Pins Hunter. Attacked by a 200-pound buck he had wounded, Elmer Middleton of this place, narrowly escaped death while hunting with George Turner in the Fairview Springs district. < After send ing a high caliber bullei through the shoulders of the buck, Middleton stood his rifle against a tree and started for the animal, armed only with a small ax. As he advanced to end its misery the buck brought both forefeet down upon his chest and then, falling dead from its wound, pinned him to the ground. —Pinoche (Nev.) Dispatch to the Denver Post.

ATTILA, KING OF THE HUNS Warrior-Barbarian Who Ravaged a Great Part of Europe in the Fifth Century. “Like the Huns under Attila” is a phrase which is on everybody’s lips at the present time. Yet comparative ly few’ people know oy whom It was first used, or understand the refer ence. x It was with these words that the kaiser bid farewell to his troops when they 'were dispatched to China to help to put down the Boxer rising. “Gain a reputation like the Huns under At tila,” he told them, says London Tit- Bits. The significance of the advice will be appreciated when it is realized that Attiia was a barbaric chief whose ravages in Europe about the begin ning of the fifth century gained for him the name of “the Scourge of God.” The leader of countless hordes of Huns, who were a Mongol race which crossed the Volga and struck terror into Europe, he was regarded by his men with superstitious reverence and by Christendom with superstitious dread. Among the acts which were committed by his direction were the following: Bleda, his brother and co-chieftain, put to death. All the countries between the Black sea and the Mediterranean devastated and pillaged. Thrace, Macedon and Greece over run and 70 flourishing cities devas tated. Several cities in Italy razed to the ground and their inhabitants put to the sw'ord. Conquered peoples either killed or forced to follow in his train ns prison ers. Yet for all this ruthlessness Attila was a magnificent soldier and a strik ing personality. He was induced to spare Rome from destruction by the personal mediation of Pope Leo I, who is said to have subdued his ferocity into awe by the apostolic majesty of his mien. This deliverance was regard ed as a miracle by the affrighted Ro mans, and old chroniclers relate that the Apostles Peter and Paul appeared In Attila’s camp and changed his pur pose. Attila died on the night of his mar riage with the beautiful Hilda—pos sibly by her hand. His death spread consternation through the host of Huns, who cut themselves with knives, shaved their heads and then prepared to celebrate the funeral rites of their king. His body was placed in three coffins—the first of gold, the second of silver and the third of iron. The ca parisons of his horses with his arms and ornaments were buried with him. while the captives employed to make his grave w ere all put to death so that none might betray the last resting place of Attila. king of the Huns. Wattersons a Fighting Race. Col. Henry Watterson seems to have inherited his fighting qualities from his father, Harvey Magee Watterson, who was born in Beech Grove, Tenn., No vember 23, 1811. He was the son of W. S. Watterson, who served in the War of 1812 on General Jackson’s staff. Harvey studied law and was elected to the Twenty-sixth congress, to suc ceed James K. Polk, who became gov ernor of Tennessee. Re-elected, he re tired at the end of his second term and became president of the state sen ate. In 1847 he bought the Nashville Union, and three years later w 7 as called to the Washington Union. He was a great friend of Franklin Pierce, but refused to support the administra tion on the Missouri compromise and the Kansas-Nebpaska bill, returning from Washington, despite offers of high position in the government serv ice. His personal popularity won hi m election to the Tennessee secession convention where, although he did his best, seeing there was no hope of keeping his state in the Union, he re turned to his home. He died in 1891. Define the Ideal Husband. Happiness in married life depends first of all on the ability of the hus band tq maintain as ardent a wooing aftei marriage as during courtship. This is the opinion of 100 Detroit wives, expressed in letters to Rev. Howard A. Field, pastor of the Simp son M. E. church. The letters were requested by Mr. Field and the pas tor based a sermon, “The Ideal Hus band.” on them. All agreed that the ideal husband must be an ideal lover. Other necessary qualities of an ideal husband in the order of their impor tance were fixed as follows: He must be a lover of home. He must be industrious even to the extent of being willing to roll up hia shirtsleeves and help tidy the house He must be morally pure—there can be no double standard of purity. He must treat his wife as his equal —not as a servant. He must be temperate.—Detroit Free Press. Great Argentine Statesman. Dr. Ramuelo Naon, ambassador of Argentina to this country, was ap pointed minister of Argentina to the United States in 1910, and was later raised to the rank of aniDassador. In 1900 he was appointed official secre tary to the governor of the province of Buenos Aires. Two years later he was elected to the lower house of the federal congress, and by 1906 he had made a great reputation for himself as an able debater and an authority on public affairs. He for several years filled the position of professor of civ ics in the National college and pro fessor of constitutional law in his alma mater. Then he became secre tary of justice and public instruction. In that position he increased his repu tation by founding schools of second ary instruction in the interior of his country.

PPWSTMAS MILESTONES*: PVEN the poor child of today has more in .ais Christmas stocking than the presperous child dreamed of Li the first century of white occupation of this coun try. Blase bays and girls who can hardly think of anything new ror which to ask the generous salat can hardly conceive of the bareness of ;hose early Christ mas holidays. In Massachusetts it was tie worst of all, for keeping Christmas was denounced as a pernicious custom, and any child daring ;o think of as much as a plum pudding on that dey would make him self liable to reproof by the at thorities. All along the stern and roekbound coast the only Christmas trees In the days of the Puritan domination were those that nature had planied there and had adorned in December with fleecy snow. The fires burned brightly on the open hearths, hut there was no invitation to the good saint to descend the chimney when the embers hud burned low. As far as the children knew, Christmas was just like aty other day in the calendar. Even after the Puritan reaction against the forms aud customs of the old church had spent Itself to some extent the children of the seventeenth century still ex pected no gifts in honor of the birthday of Christ In New Amsterdam the outlook was a little bet ter for the children. The Ho landers had brought with them their St. Nicholas, an. is birthday was celebrated joyously by young a.id old just before Christmas, but this day was kept, too, by the Protestant Dutch as heartily as by any Catho lics. Of course, they had ne t many real toys as we know them today, but in the shoes that the lit tle Hollanders set by the fireplace in the shining k.tchen, which was also the living room, were home-made sweets aud cakes and home-made g.fts. Many of these were of a useful character, such as hand-knit caps and mittens, but now and then a skillful Hollander would carve a model of a boat such as that vhioh had brought them to New Amsterdam or a miniature chest of drawers, and one can fancy the recipients showing these with pride to the wondering little Indian boys and girls when they came to be on terms of suf- CXNTUBY. ficient amity with them tor such conferences. In Virginia, where the Church of England was strong and its adherents stiadfastly observed the holidays as in the home country, there was al ways more of the Christ mis spirit and abundant cheer and merrymaking than elsewhere at this season. Here the Yule log held Its place and here were the games and the feasting that made it indeed the merry season of the year. Latere when New Amsterdam became New York and the English came into power the character of the Christmas holiday was changed again somewhat, although the Dutch influence continued dominant for many years. Owing to the large number of Germans in Penn sylvania Christmas there partook largely of the nature of the festival in the fatherland It was largely a family affair. The children for months before the day of the Nativity saved their pennies and bought material from which they fashioned their gifts for their parents and for one another. These were presented on Christmas eve, and the next day the parents in tun spread out their pres ents for the children on a large table in the best room. Stockings were hung, too, and the good children had them filled with sweetmeats, pepper cakes and other goodies, but those who had been bad sometimes found a birch rod as a Christmas gift. There was one custom that was fraught with great terror to children. One Knecht Rupert went from house to home inquiring about the children on Christmas eve and recommending re wards or punishments according to the reports that he received of their conduct during the year. The Pennsylvania Santa Claus was popularly known as Kriss Kringle, a corruption of Christ kindlein, the little Christ Throughout the colonies in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries toys were an almost un known factor, but wherever Christmas observ ances were not frowned upon by religion feasting and good cheer were abundant, and bond and free, rich and poor, old and young shared in the games, abundant food and genial atmosphere. Not only did the munificence of those who were well sup plied witn worldly goods extend to their depend ents and to all within reach of their charity, but in some places even the animals had an extra allowance of food to let them know 7 that Christ mas had come again. In the eighteenth century toys began to make their appearance in the colonies. Some of them were brought from overseas and had the enchant ing quality of novelty. Little girls who had helped to mother their younger brothers and sisters were delighted with dolls that were all their own to dress and undress, to- fondle and coddle, punish and reward. Simple and quaint were those early dolls, like the children (hey belonged to. One can fancy the surprise and terror of the timid when they first beheld a Jack jump into the air when an innocent looking box was opened. A toy was a thing to be cherished In those days. It was indeed a wondrous saint who could bring such things in his pack. Some of the gifts were of real intrins’c value, for the shipping and trad ing were growing to be important factors In the colonies, and men brought' treasures of all kinds from the Far East to the seaports, whence they were distributed to other parts of the colonies. The war for independence interrupted this and the children snared in the self-sacrifices and de THE CHRISTMAS TREE The tradition that trees and flowers blossomed on Christmas night is first quoted from an Ara bian geographer of the ter th century.

Claus Yound it safe to resume his visits and make the distributions. He still met with a few frowns in New England, but for the most part he was welcomed in homes of varying degrees everywhere. There were no steam pipes or hot-air registers in those days and the chimneys were still hospitable. The saint had to increase the size of his pack and get a new sleigh to accommodate the increased variety and number of gifts for distribution, and whereas two reindeer had been entirely adequate for draw ing his load in the eighteenth century he now had to add two at a time every few years. Another war came along, but this time Santa Claus decided that he <Rd not need to go out of business; but he found anew kind of toy appro priate to the time which proved wonderfully ac ceptable to the patriotic young Americans. Enter the wooden soldier in his painted uniform. Hap py the boy who found a company of these on Christmas morning. Sometimes he might even get a toy cannon or a warship something like those that were used in the sarrlng engagements of the war. The little girls of the period were so expert with the needle that they could make Hags and even little uniforms for the toy soldiers. In the hundred years since that time there lias been a mighty development in the toy armaments, and all sorts of figures and implements have been evolved until at the present time a fortunate boy of the twentieth century may have a sufficient military and nival equipment to carry on a real war with another boy whose fighting force is equally impressive. The warships and torpedo boats are exact models of real ones, and Mime of them can float upon the water in all the majesty of fighting vessels. Their equipment is perfect, too, even to the wireless apparatus ana devices for saving as well as for destroying life. Ashore there are forts of the latest construction and fighting men of all nationalities. One of the latest achievements in the Christ mas toys is in the aerial apparatus. From box kites to real aeroplanes that will whiz through the air there is everything that the boy who has watched real airships and longed to fly one him self can desire to possess. Some of them are al most large enough to accommodate St. Nicholas himself. Even the railways accommodate them selves to the exigencies of warfare. The railways and their equipment are the last word in the up to-date toys for fortunate children. With the training they furnish there should be developed a race of engiiteers, managers and presidents of railroads in tnte future. The most complete sets that Santa Claus brings in 1914 have tracks that can be laid straight away and in curves, going through tunnels, having improved signals and up to-date stations. There are electric and steam trains, coaches for several classes, baggage and freight cars —indeed everything required for the demands of travel arid traffic. If a boy has no taste for the details of rail roading he inay be interested in moving pictures, and Santa Claus has a line assortment of appara tus of that kind, some of it simple enough for almost anyone to operate and splendid for utiliz ing picture rost cards or the photographs made with the camera, which is one of the favorite articles in the Christmas pack. Some persons say that Santa Claus has dis carded his reindeer and pack and taken to using decorations was forbidden by Archbishop Martin of Braga, but It seems to have continued with lit tle interruption to the present time. The first definite mention of a Christmas tree was at Strassburg in 1605. It was Introduced into Eng land as late as 1840 by the prince consort, and into France about the sama time by the Princess Helena of Mecklenburg. But although its advent into Christendom is so comparatively recent there are many traditions of the antiquity of the tree in connection with various ceremonials. A Scandinaviaa myth tells of a “service tree” sprung from the blood drenched soil where two lovers had been killed Wanted to Cop/ Mamma. While plhying with a pair of shears little Laura severed one of the pret tiest cf her golden curls. “My dear child, why did you do that?” asked Aunt M ry, who came to call soon afterward. “I wanted ’em so I could i take 'em off and hang 'em on a chair, ! like mamma does.” Daily Thought.

For the little children a woolly sheep used to be a delightful toy in the latter part of the last century, and when dogs and bears that would actually walk were found on Christmas morning there was a howl of delighted admiration N'ow there are lambs and dogs of life size and ponies as big as the real ones, and all sorts of large ani mals with the coats like the natural animal. They all walk and move about and act their parts per fectly. Whatever father and mother have is duplicated for the children besides the thousand and one things that are devised especially for their amuse ment. All through the year the ingenious folk are working overtime in all the toy Liiops of the world to turn out the load for Santa Claus to carry to the fortunate children who look for him on Christinas eve, 1914. CHRISTMAS REVELRY A figure everywhere dominant in the celebra tion of Christmas in the middle ages was that of the Lord of Misrule, also called the Master of Merry Disports. In Scotland this same master of the revels was known as the Abbot of Unrea son, while in France his title was very much the same—“Abbas Stultorum”—or Abbot of Fools. The king, the great lords of his realm and other important personages must needs appoint such a leader and organizer of their Christmas festivi ties. In Scotland, previous to the Reformation, the monasteries used to elect such a functionary, but in 1555 a 7 aw was rassed for the suppression of the Abbot of Unreason, along with all the other burlesque and fantastic features of the Christmas celebration. The barons and knights kept open house at Christmas time for a fortnight, Revelry reigned throughout this period, and on Christmas day the grand feast, given by the feudal chieftain to his friends and retainers, took place with great pomp and magnificence. The boar’s head was first and foremost on the board, and its entrance to the banqueting room was heralded by a great blare of joyful trumpets. Borne on a gold or silver platter by the server at the head of a procession of nobles, knights and ladies, the foremost dish of the feast made the round of the hall to merry minstrelsy. When it was finally given its place rosemary and bay were spread around it, a pippin was placed on its tusk anTJ a. mammoth pot of mustard close at hand. The boar’s head was put down by act of parlia ment in the time of the commonwealth, and after that, xlthough it was officially freed of the ban. it never quite recovered its former place as a part of th 5 Christmas feast. Thi peacock dish was next in importance to the bears head. This bird sometimes appeared at the board with all its feathers on and its beak gilded, its skin haVing been removed before cook ing and carefully readjusted after it was ready for the table. , A FAMILY JAR. “Providence intended me for a leader of [aslr ion.” “Providence intended you for a fool." “Well, whether Providence did or no‘ you got me.” * ONE. “There never was a woman who didn’t gab about her neighbors, ’’ growled Mr. Gabb. “Oh. yes there was,” replied Mrs. Gabb. “That’s right,” commented Mr. Gabb, “I forgot about Eve."

An alluring MANITOBA'S AGRICULTURAL INDUSTRY REMARKABLE DEVELOPMENT IN THAT PROVINCE DURING THE PAST FEW YEARS. Tie past year has shown that the Province of Manitoba, the Premier Province of Western Canada, stands out prominently in point of wealth in I her agricultural productions. Mani- j toba had an excellent yield of wheat in 1914, the oat crop was not so good, and with the high price received, every tarirer w-as placed in a good financial position. For some years, as is probably the case in all .new countries, Manitoba wen: largely into the growing of grail, ancf while this paid well for a time, it was found that Having to pur chase his meat, h: mi,k and a num ber of other daily requisites, the farm did not pay as it should. Now, there | Is another side to it. Fodder crops are grow a, cattle are being raised, cheese factories and creameries are established, and the result is that the fing||cial position of the farmers of Manitoba Is as strong as that of those in any other portion of the continent Scarcely a farmer today but has real ized that the growing of grains alone has a precarious side, and that posi tive security can only be assured by diversified farming, and securing the latest modern and most economic methods. Therefore timothy, clover, alfalfa, rye grass and odder corn are universally grown. Most wonderful success meets the efforts of the farm ers in the cultivation of these grasses, and the yields compare favorably with those of many older countries, while in many cases they exceed them. I: is worth while recording the acre age of these crops this season as com pared with last, because the figures re flect the remarkable progress that is being made in dairying and in the beef and pork industry'. In 1913 brome grt,ss was sown on 24,912 acres, rye grs.ss on 21,917 acres, timothy on 114,712 acres, clover on 6,328 acres, al falfa on 4,709 acres and fodder corn on 20,223 acres. In 1914 the respective acreage under those crops were 25,444 acres, 27,100 acres, 165,990 acres, 7,212 acres, and 10,250 acres and 30,430 acres. A1 ’s.lfa particularly is coming into Its own, the acreage having been more than doubled last year. (t is simply the natural process of evolution from the purely grain farm ing which Manitoba knew' as the only method twenty years ago to the more diversified forms of agriculture that is responsible for the development along these other lines In this Prov ince. Alberta is coming to it at an earlier stage than did Manitoba. Sas katchewan, too, is following rapidly in the same direction. Then, as her fodder crop and root crop acreage indicate, there have been increases in the holdings of all kinds ot live stock during the past twelve n onths. according to the correspond ent, for the Toronto Globe. Beef cattle nunber 42,000 head this ~* '*r. as aiainst 37,000 last year; milch cows are 160,474 head, as against 157,963 head; pigs number 325,000 as against 218,000; sheep number 75,000, as against 52.000; and there are 325,000 horses, as compared with 300,000 at this time last year. These are the latest Provincial figures, and they show that despite the great efflux of lve stock to the United States since the opening of that market to Can ada. the capital amount of live ani mals has increased instead of hav ing decreased through the extra de mand. Dairying the Principal Industry. Dairying is the industry, however, which is making dollars for the Mani toba farmer. It is developing at a rap id rate in this Province for that par ticular reason. The output of cream ery butter last year was 4,000,00!) pounds, at an average price of 27.5 cents per pound, which was an in crease over the previous year of a aiillion pounds. The output of dairy outter was recorded last year at 4,288, 276 pounds. The Government depart ment says that again this year a sub stantial increase in the dairy output will be shown from this Province. From this same source of information Dne finds that through the splendid growth in winter dairying, Winnipeg now, for the first, time in yeax x, is able to obtain a sufficient supply of milk and sweet cream from its city dairies to satisfy its demand through out the year without having to import large quantities of these products V Muratai I Mill 1.1 •: I ‘ AYetfe table Preparaiion for As ? the food anti Regula £JJ ting the Stomachs and Bowels of \ ; || BtajSßmamßEpai Promotes Digestion,Cheerful ly: nessandßesfConlainsneither I: Opium.
