C. BRANSCOMB, Montreal. Can. OME time ago a lady of whom 1 thought a great deal and to whom I stood in the relation of family physician came to see me, as she said, to have a heart-to-heart talk about her husband, a very close friend of mine and a mo9t worthy man. She had no complaint to make of Eier consort, lie wan everything that was kind and good and generous, but—there is always a but—it was beginning to tell on her nerves the way her good man bothered her without being conscious of it. The trouble was he hung about the house too much and this threw upon her the burden of entertaining him. in magnificent health except when now and then he suffered from an over Whenevcr this happened he S He was indulgence in wine and mixed decoctions, was especially hard to entertain. This was about the gist of her woe|, and wouldn't I please do something to help her out. I asked her it her husband had ever tried golf, and finding out he hadn't I told her to send him to me. When he called I told him with interest in life and that all gravity I could muster that he needed a new if he would take my counsel I'll give him, gratis, a prescription that would lengthen his life at least ten years. Of course, I didn't allude U wifey's visit. Well, I expatriated to that gentleman for twenty minutes got him so keyed up that he was trying it inside of twenty-four hours. Today he is an enthusiast and also a shining example of what the sport will do for a man of fifty who has become tired of nearly all other diversions, travel He was curious, and 1 saw that my words impressed him. on golf, and included. Mr. Golfplayer'a wife met me the other day as I was leaving home and told me she was absolutely happy over the change in her lord and master, said he had ceased drinking, ceased hanging about her when she didn't feel up to the task of amusing him, and that he had rather do without his dinner than his regular game. It was the best remedy she had ever seen given to reform a man. ÏV > -* Jl We are seeing constantly the employ ers' side. Employees are urged "to hitch their wagon to a star," to do the best work possible, and the question of recompense will solve itself. Now, please let me speak for that long suffering employee. I'll grant there are unconscientious workers, as there are But is the per much greater than As One Wage Earner Views Salary Question many unscrupulous employers, centage of the first so that of the latter? Of course a clever employer recognizes efficiency, but the point is that he is not willing to pay for that efficiency which he to. He has to only when another employer worker has achieved the solid By J. D. KELLE S recognizes; not until he has recognizes it. My point is that when a basis of real efficiency, in order to have his or her own employer recognize it he must make some other employer see it first. For instance, I know a girl, competent and successful, who was work saw her worth and ing for the sum of $6 a week. Another business man offered her $10. She immediately went to her employer and told him of her offer. Naturally he raised hef salary to $10. Another instance was that of a young man working for $15 a week A rival firm offered $21, with an increase of $1 a week for each succeeding year until a maximum of $25 was reached. When he told this to the head of his own firm the offer was at once met with one exactly similar. He remained where he was. The firm gave its "capable and expert" employee am con the $21, but lias never 6ince raised it. Now, this is not intended as a tirade against employers, especial grievance. Though far from being adequately paid, I sidered one of the successful workers. But I do know there are two sides to this question, and this is to urge the girls wherever possible to let other firms know of their ability that their own employers may be alive to the ! fact of their conscientious and capable efforts.

This, going out and coming In amid all the trials of the city, the agony of the plague, the horrors of the thirsty tyrants, the fierce democracy abroad, the fiercer ill at home—the saint, the sage of Athens, was still the same. Such a one can endure hardness; can stand alone and be content; a rock amid the waves— lonely, but not moved. Around him the few or many may scream, calum niate, blaspheme.

"Where on earth do those flies come from?" is a frequent and de spairing question. They may come down the chim neys, If the fireplaces have tipping dampers.

If the chimneys have not the tip ping damper, a screen such as Is used for a window can be fitted Into the fireplace; or, easier still, a bundle of paper may be stuffed up the chlm ney.

Kan.—An old Dutch wind mill, the kind one sees in pictures of the canals of Europe, has been In op eration in Kansas for 40 years and It is still doing duty, making the festive Kansas sephyr do the work that is ordinarily required of water power or steam. The mill stands on the high prairies at Reamsville, a quaint little old village in Smith county. It is 16 mlleB from a railroad. It was one of the first settlements in the county and many Dutch live on farms near there and their meal and flour is ground as in the old country, by the old windmill. It is the only mill of the kind in the state. One was built Many to ing my Sts., when an tape food. of tape the of and are r a ft ■M M the no and to out if M.

He had been a miller In hls native land and when he came to Kansas to seek hls fortune on a prairie farm he found it was many miles to a mill. Schwarz saw In this an opportunity for he had been a miller In the old country and the strong winds of Kan sas reminded him of the ocean winds that sweep across the dikes of Holland and turn the mills dotted all over that country, so he conceived the Idea of making the bold, free winds of the prairie pay toll by turning a mill that should grind the people's grain. But there was no machinery In this country for such a mill, so with great care and pains, he drew on paper drafts of every wheel and cog and lever and bolt, and taking them to Lin coln. Neb., had the plans worked out and the parts forged In the foundry there. And for nearly forty years the old mill has been doing duty, working when the wind blows, resting when the calm comes; teaching its genial master many a lesson In patience, fur nishing food for the public roundabout, and a competence for the man who saw an opportunity and had the skill and perseverance to accomplish what was, in that day. a really great under taking.

GREWSOME CREATURES VERY COMMON, FINDS EXPERT. Many people in the United States are afflicted with a queer disease, according to a statement yesterday by Professor James M. Munyon. He made the follow ing remarkable and rather grewsome statement: "Many persons who come and write to my headquarters at 63d and Jefferson Sts., Philadelphia, Pa., think they are suffering from a simple stomach trouble, when In reality they are the victims of an entirely different disease—that of tape worm. These tape worms are huge Internal parasites, which locate In the upper bowel and consume a large per centage of the nutriment in undigested food. They sometimes grow to a length of forty to sixty feet. One may have a tape worm for years and never know the cause of hls or her ill health. "Persons who are suffering from one of these creatures become nervous, weak and Irritable, and tire at the least ex ertion. The tape worms rob one of am bition and vitality and strength, but they are rarely fatal. "The victim of this disease Is apt to believe that he is suffering from chronic stomach trouble, and doctors for years without relief. This Is not the fault of physicians he consults, for there Is ibsolute diagnosis that will tell posi ts not a victim of tape the no a tlyely that worm. "The moat common symptom of this trouble la an abnormal appetite. At times the person la ravenously hungry and cannot get enough to eat. At other times the very sight of food Is loathsome. gnawing, faint sensation at pit of the stomach, and the victim headaches, fits of dizziness and nau He cannot sleep at night and often thinks he Is suffering from nervous pros tration. "I have a treatment which has had wonderful success In eliminating these great creatures from the system. In the course of Its regular action In aiding digestion, and ridding the blood, kidneys and liver of Impurities It has proven fatal to these great worms.
