Procrastination is the most ex pensire form of vacation. —F.D.Rich. No Useless Formalites. Traveling with Sir Arthur Markham on one occasion, the conversation with the present writer turned on the limits of self defense. “I shot a man once.” said Sir Arthur. "And what hapi»en ed?” I Inquired. "Was there trouble?" •‘No.” came the reply; "there might have lieen elsewhere, but It wan in the wild part of Russia. The man was trying to euter my bedroom window at night, anti I shot him. He fell outside. A small patrol of Cossacks was pass ing within reach of the sound of the revolver. They came along, secured the wounded man. asked a few ques tions and disposed of the whole busi ness by hanging my burglar on the nearest tree. I heard no more about the matter." This method of dealing with n very plain business seemed to he thoroughly In accord with Sir Arthur’s wish to have things done without any bothering red tape or for malities.—Westminster Gazette. Two Freaks of Nature. Two contrasting freaks of nuture are the Island of Fire and the Lake of Snow. The Island of Fire Is called the Home of Hot Devils. It is situated In the midst of a large lake of boiling mud in the Island of Java. The steam and gases which arise from the sticky mud form themselves Into bubbles at taining a diameter of five or six feet and sail high up in the air like bal loons. carried hither and thither by the wind and finally exploding with a loud crash. The biggest snow lake Is seen from the summit of Hlspar pass, in the Ka rakoram range. It is more than 300 squnre miles In area. In Switzerland the sen of Ice might lietter l>e called the sea of snow, ns the surface Is bro ken up by solar beat, which makes n minute Assuring In the Ice. giving it the appearance of snow. Berries of the Nightshade. The berries of the deadly nightshade (Atropa belladonna) are such a tempt ing fruit for children that both they and their parents ought to know the plant and the terrible danger of eating its berries. These are the source from which the poisons atropine and bella donna arc made. The deadly nightshade grows from three to five feet high on strong branched purple colored stems. Its pointed, oval leaves vary in size and stand In pairs on short foot stalks. The flowers nre purple, pendent and hell shaped. These appear In June and July and give place to shining black berries In August and September. This poisonous herb is of the same family ns the tomato and |>otato.— New York World. Getting It Right. Harold, aged four, was trudging the distance of many blocks with his fa ther to Sunday school, aud the long tramp was almost too much for him.

All household furnishings nnd clothing should be exposed to di rect sunlight for a number of hours at least every few days. Direct sunlight Is the host disin fectant known. It kills germs in a few hours. Diffused sun light or daylight may have as good effect, but In a much longer time. Shutting the sunlight out of the house Is an unhygienic custom. It should go as has gone many of the ideas ami cus toms belonging to the dark ages. For that reason sunshine should find Its way into the home dally, and its presence should be wel comed as a messenger of cleanli ness nnd good health. The draw ing of shades nnd the closing of windows to keep the carpets and draperies from fading should he discouraged. It is better tff have cari>ets nnd draperies that are faded than to have boys and girls with cheeks that are faded. Roses in the cheeks are more valuable than roses in the carpet.

Heated in a circle, every one Is set vigorously to wagging tlie hands. The leader proceeds somewhat after thi* fashion: "Dog feathers" (as dogs do not wear feathers, the hands must con Untie to wag), "fish feathers, lion feath ers, mouse feathers, bat feathers." At tills last, unless all are on the alert, some of the hands may go down 011 the lap. In that case the person whose hands go down first must be come 1 lie new leader, because hats do not wear feathers. But if no one is caught the original lender continues “Lynx feathers, squirrel feathers, eel feathers, robin feathers." At tids lasi all the wagging hands must tly down to the laps nt once, being raised again, however, nnd keep on wagging. This is because robins have feathers, if tiny pair of hands have failed to salute the feathers the owner of tbut pair must become the new leader and strive in turn to catch others. From this description the principle or the game will easily be seen. It is 11 good game to familiarize children with the names of different animals. Gams of Scouts. The players divide into two parties nnd go into different rooms. Each party then sends out a "scout." nnd the two meet anti decide on different things to guess 1:1 small object in a local shop, the left eyebrow of Julius Caesar, or anything equally puzzling) and then return to the rooms, each going to his opponent’s party, when questions are asked him in quick succession, us the side guessing first is the winning one nnd ean take possession of both "scouts." Only those questions which can be answered by "Yes," "No" or "I don't know" nre allowable. As In oth er games. It Is first discovered whether the object Is animal, vegetable or min eral. and after this is settled questions come thick nnd fust until one of the parties lias won the guessing race when a shout or whistle proclaims the fyet to their opponents. Dumb Show. Players are divided Into two equal groups. One party goes outside of the room The others stay inside nnd choose a verb. The outside team is told a word which rimes with the verb chosen. The outside team then acts out a verb which they think to be the right one without saying a word If It Is right the inside team claps hands. If wrong the inside team snakes heads, nnd the outside team ir.«3Af retire and try again. If success ful teams change places. No s|H>nkiug allowed. Clipped Words. 1. A fish. ‘J. Ilenrty 3. A drink.

One day a little rabbit enme Right into our back yard and sat And wagged tils long gray velvet enr» And sniffed about nt this and that As if he wondered where he was.

But when I ran across the lawn He gave a Jump and tossed his head And small whl*e tail—qnd then was gone) Spring Spring Ik looked upon by many as the inostdelightful season of the year, but this cannot be said of the rlietitii •atic.

APRIL M. 1917 A Footnote to History Before we can all get, something like a correct slant upon the military policy of the United States, and upon our foreign relations, most of us have got, to get cured of false notions which our school histories and the portly frock-coated Fourth of July orators pumped into us when we were young and impressionable. One such mis conception is that wt* defeated Great Britain in tho war of IHI2. That war lasted three years, and was, on land, an almost unbroken succession of de feats for our raw troops. At sea—and most American historians therefore say more about the operations at sea —we took son prizes and covered our selves with glory, for that was in the days when ships from the ways of Maine, sailed by daredevil Yankees, could overhaul or show their heels to almost, any European afloat. Andrew Jackson’s Battle of New Orleans, our one conspicuous land victory, was rought after the inconclusive Treaty of Ghent in I been signed. (Strictly speaking, it 'as not, therefore, an en gagement of . te war of 1812) How general is the false notion that, wo • won” that, warone may deduce from tho fact that Franklin H. Giddings, in Ids article in last week’s Collier’s asserts: "NVe won the war of 1812 be cause Great Britain had other im portant matters to attend to, and be cause the majority of Englishmen were, on tho whole, willing that we should.” Spoken like a patriot and an optomist! But we might be tempt ed to write a footnote to Professor <4Hiding's statement that “we won" that war if anyone hut a professor in Columbia University had made it, and if his article had been published in any other magazine than Collier’s. —Collier's Weekly. Safe Medicine for Children "Is it safe?” is the first question to be considered when buying cough medicine for children. Chamberlain’s Cough Remedy has long been a fav orite with mothers of young children as it contains no opium or other nar cotic. and may lie given to a child as confidently as to an adult. It is pleas ant to take, too, which is of great im portance when a medicine must be given to young children. This remedy is most effectual in relieving coughs, colds and croup. Obtainable every where. For Men With Beards “Mania,” said little Marion, "do men ever go to heaven.” "Why, of course, my dear. What makes you ask?" "Because I never see any pictures of angels with whiskers..” “Well.” said the mother th tight fully, "some men do go to heaven, hut they get there by a close shave.” Why Constipation Injures The bowels are the natural sewer age system of the body. When they become obstructed by constipation a part of the poisonous matter which they should carry off is absorbed into the system, making you feel dull and stupid, and interfering with the di gestion and assimilation of food. This condition is quickly relieved by Chamberlain's Tablets. Obtainable everywhere. Adhering to Orders Doctor (to Mrs. Perkins, whose husband is ill ) Has lie had any lucid intervals? , Mrs. Perkins (with dignity)—Vs ’ad nothing except what you ordered, doctor. Fifty thousand persons took part in a grand jmtriotic demonstration at Kansas City recently, says Lamar Sparks, but the army and navy re cruiting offices in that city did not gain a single recruit from the demon strators. Tills is in strict accordance with the ways of a large part of American tinman nature, which wants to do all the shouting while permitting the other fellow to do the heavy work. It is a good tiling to be rich, and a good thing to he strong, but it is a better tiling to be loved by many friends. —Euripides. Try The Herald for a year.
