Inches square and 12 to 16 inches high,
with a strip about 4 Inches high on

Houses of solid concrete are cold
and damp, but concreteblocka may be

It can be bought In some sections at
a price which compares favorably, dur

construction is well adapted to incu

to any buildings requiring double walls
and good insulation. All kinds of
wood are used, but anything used for
.outside construction should be well
seasoned, otherwise the shrinkage will
cause cracks In the walls.

The last day. of the motttli^ the last
month of the year, the last hour of
the session qf the great criminal
court in which the famous case of the
State vi. Walden Renstone, charged
with conspiracy to defraud, had
dragged its slow length for a full
week—such' a time,, the scene, the cli
There had been little but the hum
drum, progress of the law In the case
until that day. The judge, William
Baton,, had listened to the evidence
in his usual subdued-manner. The
fate of the prisoner had been fore
stalled. It seemed patent that Wal
den. Renstone, .accused of selling
fraudulent bonds with, the collusion
of a. band of disreputable brokers, was
The last evidence was In, the state
was about to begin Its argument, when
a woman, deeply veiled, who had sat
beside the prisoner all through the
trial, arose to her feet, threw back
her veil and confronted the judge and
If the' eyes or the courtroom had
been, fixed upon the judge Instead of
upon this woman, there would have
been noticed a quiver pass over the
austere face, dignity, self-control go
hurtling to the winds, a sudden pallor
obscure the set, statuesque features.
Then, with his glance riveted, fas
cinated, Judge Eaton simply bowed
as the woman made a request to
speak In behalf of her husband.
"Let me plead for him, let me tell
my story she cried "Guilty or In
nocent, give me the opportunity to
show that he Is more sinned against
"Object!" cried the attorney for the
"Overruled," came mandatorily from
the lips of the judge, and the abashed
attorney stood petrified at this dis
tlnct violation of precedent and usage.
It was a pitiful story the woman
told, of a reckless man with a loyal,
patient wife. He had been deceived
by bad companions.. In the midst of
poverty temptation bad come. Look
at him—a consumptive, a physical
wreck. The doctors, she said, had
given him up to die, his span of life
As in a daze the judge listened to
the arguments that followed. As In
a dream he went back in his life
twenty years. The only woman In
whom he had ever been Interested
was this woman. He had known her
as Lucile Danvers. He worshiped her
at a distance. She had married Ren
stone—he had never forgotten.
And now, in her forlorn plight, she
had revealed herself as the wife of
the man whose name the judge had
almost forgotten. Then came the
charge of the judge to the Jury.
In consternation friends of the
judge listened to his charge the pros
ecuting attorney heard, appailed. The
counselor for the defendant looked
up in wonder. Erect and motionless
as a statue, In his erudite, forcible
manner, Judge Eaton quoted the law,
applied It to a remission of the guilt
of the prisoner, and practically ig
nored the results of the evidence. Im
pressed by a realization of the su
perior knowledge of the judge, the
jury retired and brought in a verdict
A few minutes after Judge Eaton
had entered his chambers the next
morning, two associate judges came
to him. They looked serious and
"Judge," spoke one of them, "we are
your friends, as you know. Your de
cision in the Renstone case has caused
a great deal of criticism: We faar
the bar association will demand an in
He extended a folded document,
"Read it," he said, stone-faced, not
a quiver In his masterly mien. It-was
his formal resignation of the judge
From that day Judge Eaton dlsap

mored that he had retired to a small
Then current gossip told of a heavy
property loss, of his serious illness,
and then the world forgot him.
From that illness, three years after
he had made the sacrifice of wealth,
position and Judicial honor out of
sympathy for a woman, Judge Eaton
came back to consciousness to find
a beautiful young girl at his side.
She had acted as his nurse for over
And In a day or two she told him
who she was—the daughter of Walden
and Lucile Renstone. Both were
dead, but had spent two years of
comfort and peace since he had saved
her father from imprisonment.
An unexpected fortune had come to
Renstone. Dying, he had directed his
daughter to pay off all be had embez
zled. Dying, hefr mother ha4 blessed
the noble mpn who had sacrificed his
all for her in her darkest hour.
She had directed Florence to find
him, to tell of her undying gratitude.
And it was she who had come to the
Judge's side when all others had for
"Do not send me away!" She plead
ed. "Remember, I am as friendless
and lonely as yourself. I seek only to
devote my life and service to the no
blest man In the world." ,'
And so new brightness and hope
came to the man the world had re
jected, and Interest on his part and
gratitude on the part of Florence

How Carbuncle Should Be Treated to

At recent examination by the state
board of Ohio, medical students were
asked how they would treat
PEMBINA N. OAK.
AD ED "SLEEPING SICK
NESS" MAY BE AVOIDED.—
The British ministry of health
has issued a bulletin on enceph
alitis lethai'gica (commonly but
erroneously called "sleeping sick
ness") to which It appends the
following advice as to precau
tions to be takes against it:
"The other occupants of a
house In which a case of en
cephalitis has occurred or is be
ing created may be assured that
the disease is one of low infec
tivity, and that very little risk
is run by association with the
patient. At the same time it Is
desirable that such association
should be limited to what is nec
essary for proper care and nurs
ing, and the patient should be
well. Isolated In a separate room.
"School children in the affect
ed household may be kept from
school, as a precautionary meas
ure, for three weeks after the
isolation of the patient. Those
In contact with the case should
be advised to use antiseptic nas
al sprays or douches and to gar
gle the throat with solutions
such as those advised for Influ
"For example, any of the fol
lowing may be used: t,l) 1 per
cent solution of peroxide of hy
drogen (2) a solution of per
manganate of potash, 1 in 5,000
in .OS per cent solution of chlor
ide of sodium (common salt)
(3) liquor sodae chlorinatae, 0.5
per cent. These solutions can
be used as ordinary gargles or
snuffed up the nostrils or applied
by an efficient spray.
"It Is desirable that any per
sons in the infected household
who suffer from sore throat or
other symptoms suggesting an
nbortive attack should be treated
from this point of view and iso
lated as far as possible until
they have recovered. The sick
room should be thoroughly
cleansed and disinfected at the
end of the illness."—Buffalo Ex
buncle. The official answer is quitted
from Rose & Carless' Manual-of Sur
gery, as follows:
"The most thorough and satisfactory
Is to lay the carbuncle freely open un
der au anesthetic and scrape with a
sharp spoon or cut-away all sloughs
until healthy tissue Is reached, and
then to disinfect the cavity thoroughly
with pure carbolic add or peroxide of
hydrogen (10 volumes). The hollow
thus formed is packed with gauze
soaked In an Iodoform emulsion (10
per cent.) and allowed to heal by
granulation. Good food, iron, quinine
and alcohol according to judgment,
must be administered, while appropri
ate medicine (e. g., codeine or opium)
and limitations of diet are Qecessary
In diabetic patients."

night in a hotel and was still curious.
