Curlona Controversy In Anstrnllu
O-vcr the Name of a Station.
A curious dispute has been settled in
New South ,\Vales. On ttoe railway be
tween Berrigan and Finley there is a
station named Wait-a-Wihle. The rail
way authorities In Sydney have long
regarded this appellation of depot on
such a business route as the Finley
line as a satire on their operations, and
they intimated to the residents of the
district a desire to alter the name to
"Hurry-on-There," "One-Side-Please,"
or some other phrase pregnant with up
to-date railway life and movement.
This radical proposal resulted In vio
lent protests from the residents of
Wait-a-While, who said that the name
had been good enough for their fath
ers and for them, and that It would
have to suit the railroad magnates way
up in Sydney. The parties have been
in severe conflict for some time, but
ultimately the commissioners have
given way, and the romantic cogno
men will stand.—Westminster Gazette.

An Actreu Said to 1'ongesg Some Valuable
Indian Sccreti.
Henrietta Crossman, the actress, is
a full-fledged medicine, woman of the
Sioux tribe of Indians, among whom
she is held in high esteem. It is not
to he inferred from this that Miss
Crossman has Indian blood in herveins.
The story of how slie obtained the se
crets she is alleged to possess illustrates
the mortal hatred which one tribe of
Indians may feel toward another, while
at the same time showing the grati
tude and appreciation of kindness that
sometimes crop out from beneath the
calm and reserve of the redskin. When
Miss Crossman was a baby her father,
Major Crossman, a well-known Indian
fighter of the regular army, was sta
tioned in Minnesota. At that time the
Chippewas were almost continually
turbulent. During a brief period of
peace one of the Chippewa braves took
to wife a Sioux maiden. This was a
serious breach of Chippewa etiquette
and the new squaw had to face the
bitter jealousy and hatred of several
other wives. While peace lasted she
was comparatively safe, but as soon as
hostilities broik^out again and her hus
band -was called away to fight her life
was made miserable. About this time
Mrs. Crossman was deeply concerned
about her baby girl, who was suffering
from pneumonia and lay hovering be
tween life and death. One evening the
mother was sitting beside the cot of her
suffering little one when a young
squaw dashed into the house and
sought protection. It was the Sioux
girl who had been driven from her hus
band's tepee by the other wives. One
of them had attempted to stab her,
but the young Sioux seized the knife
and thus saved her life, ^it the cost of
a terribly wounded hand. Mrs. Cross
man gave the poor creature such aid
as was possible while the wounded
squaw told her story. Then the
visitor asked to look at the sick: bajpy,
and on learning the cause of sickness
declared her ability to relieve the litcle
one, adding that her father was, the
great medicine man of the Sioux, and
that from him she had learned many
secrets. Mrs. Crossman, feeling that
the Indian girl would at least not harm
the child, gave permission for an ex
periment to be made. The squaw at
once departed and in an hour returned
with some herbs which she combined
into a medicine which actually seemed
to afford the child speedy relief. A
few days later the baby was as well as
ever. Then the Sioux girl disappeared
and succeeded in reaching her own
people. When Miss Crossman was old
enough she told the story. In after
years she met the Sioux woman and at
the latter's request was formally
chosen a medicine woman. A number
of Indian secrets were confided to her,
and now her fame is great among the
Sioux. Thus it happens that whenever,
with her company, she chances to be
playing near an Indian settlement she
is sure to be overwhelmed with dusky
visitors, bringing all sorts of offerings.
Sne has a smattering of the Sioux
language, and it seems strange to see
the big chiefs and warriors bow down
to this dainty little woman.
An Idea as to Its Parity May Me De
rived by Using Smoke or Peppermint.
Once a year is quite often enough to
have the plumbing tested for the es
cape of sewer gas. There are two
methods of doing this—the pepper
mint test and smoke test. The latter
is regarded as the most absolute,
though both are used. When such a
test is made the regular escapes for
the water are plugged up and smoke
is pumped into the pipes from the roof.
For this purpose there is a special
machine which combines a furnace and
a force pump. In this little furnace
are put old rags or discarded Christ
mas trees, or anything which will make
a fine smudge. As soon as these are
in good smoking condition the smudge
is forced down into the pipes and a
tour of examination is made. If the
smoke escapes at any point it can be
detected at once. The peppermint test
is made from the roof also. The es
capes are plugged up and then about
a pint of peppermint oil is poured in
the roof pipe, followed by a bucket of
hot water. The odor of the pepper
mint is so penetrating that it will
quickly escape at
defective spot.
But the man who handles the pepper
mint has to stay on the roof until the
examination is complete or the whole
house will be permeated with the odor.
The Smallest Island In the World.
Rockall is, perhaps, the smallest
island in the world. It is situated in
Ihe Atlantic over 300 miles west of
Scotland, and is a mere rock about 60
feet high and 225 feet round, arising
from a reef of sand. The rock is basalt
and granite, very magnetic. It is
haunted by sea-birds, and the mackerel
of the surrounding seas are very fine.
Of course, it was never inhabited, and
is very seldom visited, owing to the
difficulty of landing on it.

Enough Wheat to Supply Britain All
She Requires from Abroad.
Toronto, Nov. 10.—The "World"
comments on the report of the United
Empire trade league on the capacity of
Canada as a granary for Britain. The
report refers to Manitoba as follows:
Manitoba has an area of forty-seven
million acres. Deducting ten million
tor lakes, rivers, town sites and waste
land, 37,000,000 acres are left for farm
cultivation or homes for 116,000 famil
ies on 320 acres each, and as up to now
there are only 27,000 farmers there al
together, that leaves room in one prov
ince for 89,008 more wheat growers.
Supposing, then, we got them there
and each one of them out of his 320
acres grew on an average 100 acres at
20 bushels to the acre if you figure it
up you will find it is quite possible for
Manitoba alone to supply us with all
the wheat we require from abroad. It
is only a question of money aid com
paratively speaking not money either.
The cost of one first-class battleship
(about £750,000) would put 5,000 fam
ilies onto farms in the Northwest, al
lowing £150 to each to find them in
implements, seeds, horses, etc., and
would keep them until their first crop
was harvested. Five thousand farm
ers, averaging 100 acres of wheat each,
at 20 bushels to the acre, means an
extra 10,000,000 bushels, for if that
scheme is not liked Britain would put
a duty on foreign wheat. In addition
to the wheat lands of Manitoba there
are the millions of acres in Assiniboia,
Alberta and Saskatchewan.

More aneemic people have been made strong, hungry,

are the best tonic in the world.
Miss Lulu Stevens, of Gasport, Niagara Co., N. Y.,had been a very
healthy girl until about a year ago, -when she grew weak and pale. She
lost her appetite, was as tired in the morning as on retiring, and lost flesh
until she became so emaciated that lier friends hardly knew her. The doc
tors declared the disease anxmia, and gave her up to die. A physician
who was visiting in Gasport prevailed upon her to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills for Pale People. She did so, and was benefited at once. She is now
well and strong—the very picture of health.—Buffalo (A". K.) Courier.

Over seventy per cent of all baking powders
contain alum. The ill effects upon the system of food
leavened by this injurious drug are attested by the
highest medical authorities. Alum baking powders
would be less dangerous were they fatal at once, for
then they surely would be avoided, but their baneful
action because imperceptible at first and slow in its
advances is no less certain.
Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder
is certified by all authorities as free from alum or any
other adulterant. Its purity has never been questioned,
and while it does finer and better work, it costs no more
than many of the adulterated powders.
