"V Use of tne lert. ' Left-eyedness is looked upon by Dr. George M. Gould, of Philadelphia, as of greater "significance than lefj-handed-ness. He is seeking facts concerning the two and their association, but sug gest that both may he due to the ab normal location of the speech center at the right side of the brain. He believes ambidexterity should be discouraged, while he has seen only bad results , in the attempt to correct a decided use of the left hand. ' ! - ... .

Pure Air Heals Woundk. : Wounds heal more quickly at a hig'n than a low altitude. This is due to the increased purity of the atmospheric con ditions. The fact is well known and acted upon even by savage races. The Zulus, among others, carry their wounded up into the hills, where the air is compara tively pure, and where their injuries, therefore, heal more r eadily than on the plans.

MARIAN MARNE. Discusses Negligee Coquettish Corset Cc vers Refinement in Perfumes. There is little excuse for, the wo man who is without tasty and becom ing negligees in this day and age of exquisite textiles at prices to suit the multitude, for the little coffee jack et and short slip-ons that all went once under the head of dressing saequel, there is an embarassment of riches in materials.

The depth of the flouncing also makes the sleeve. The corset cover is also receiving an unusual amount of, attention.

Daintiness, refinement and harmoni ous colorings are the marked character istics of the season's fashions for mi lady, and as much good taste is dis played in scents as in any other acccs sor'ies of the toilet. And in this wo trmn is not nlone. for men there are who can fully appreciate the subtle, charm of exquisite odors, as well as their widely acknowledged Hygienic value.- The world seems to be realiz ing again that our fortfathers showed reason in the -use they made of sweet herbs and aromatic' plants as prevent-. ives against, infection, and matevial is j not lacking for a voluminous history of the fashionable taste as it has been-: expressed by the, various ' perfumes j made by the famous Lubln of Paris i jfor many genei'aflons ,of the world's most fasnlonable men and women, and in' Enigma, their latest perfume, the verdict is that they have reached , the acme of refinement in scents. MARION MARNE. UNITED STATES HOUSE ; OF REPRESENTATIVES It was on the shle of Senator Han way a brilliant thought, and a darind one, this plan to seize a Bpe.ikership and apply it to his personal fortunes; for your Speakership is . that office second only to a Presidency, .and comes often to be the latter's superior in actual force. .Those wise ones who designed the government intended the House of Representatives to be a' republic- Through its own groveling ab jections, however, dt long apo became an autocracy with the speaker in the role of autocrat. It sold its birthright for no one knows what mess of pot tage to pass its slavish days beneath a tyranny of the gavel. The speaker settles all things. No' 'measure is pro posed, no bill . passes," "no ; member speaks except by the speaker's will. He constructs the committees and se lects their chairmen and lays out their work. -With 'a dozen members, every one of whom votes and acts beneath his thumb, the speaker , transacts the story of the House. So far las the other three hundred and forty"1 , odd members are concerned, the folk who sent them might as well have written a letter. They live as much without 1 tart or part in planning and execution house affairs as do the caged menagerie animals in the planning and, execution of the affairs of what show they hap pen to exist as the attractions. These caged ones of, the house are never re garded and but seldom heard. The best that one of them may gain ,"is "Leave to print";. which is a kind of consent to be fraudulent, and permits a member to pretend through the Con gressional record , that he made a speech (which he never made) and was overwhelmed by -applause (he did not receive) that swept down in thunderous (appeals (during momenta utterly silent) from crowded galleries (as empty as a church).

It is composed of their private car, fitted up at a cost of over 20,000, with three sleeping cars, a buffet, smoking car and a lug gage van. Practically speaking, it is a hotel on wheels. It is a favorite prac tice of American millionaires to give train parties, when a number of invited ruests travel together for weeks at a time. Jjonaon Tit-lilts. . . FOG - BOUND COASTS THEY ARE A BAR TO CANADIAN OCEAN TRAFFIC. Despite These, However, the Dominion Will Attempt to Compete with New York and Boston for Atlantic Business. On the first of July a new trans-Atlantic steamship service' will begin be tween Montreal and Liverpool, a ser vice by which1 Canada hopes to divert much of , the ocean transport business that now goes by way of Boston or New York- The government , will pay heavily for this opportunity of retain ing in English liners the transportation of her products and people across the cean, and it is doubtful, if, after all; she can be successful. This new line will consist of .two splendid boats, driven by turbines, and each capable of making 17 knots so that the trip across should be made in six days, and it is hoped in time to cut from this a full day by the introduction of faster boats. The route from Montreal to Liverpool is far shorter than that either from Boston or New York, but what Canada gains in distance she loses in condi tions attending safe navigation, and the fogs of Newfoundland will more than offset her advantages under ruling conditions. The first drawback to Can ada's operating successfully a "fast" service is the ice; fog and currents about the Newfoundland oast, which cause so many shipping disasters there. Indeed, it is Newfoundland,, rather than Canada which is the determining fac tor in this connection, , for until the danger zones about the.' three,, points of the triangle Newfoundland makes at the mouth of the Gulf of St. Lawrence Cape Rice, Cape Ray and Belle Isle are properly safeguarded, no sane man will run ocean fliers there, and a "fast" Atlantic service will remain a dream. Canada really has to face two con siderations. Should she aim at "grey hounds" or ships of moderate speed, what port and route should be chosen? In weighing these two matters she must take into account that her popu- ttt&. 0 THE FOG-BOUND COAST OF NEW t FOUNDLAND. lation is less than 6,000,000; her wealthy class limited in proportion, and her traveling public inadequate to fill the saloon accommodations of an up-to-date New York "liner. To provide boats to compete with these would "mean a passenger service only, for the "greyhound" carries little or no freight, and makes her profit out of heavy berth rates charged, while ships of 17 knots can give over to.oargo the space she has to use for coal, and can reach port within a day of their- speedier rival, cabin fares being also suited to neonle of moderate means. This would appear to be the service most likely to be productive of the greattst good to Canada. . : .. With slow boats Canada can carry her own freight to Europe, but that she will, at least in the near future, be able to compete with fast boats in the pas senger traffic between the two- conti nents is scarcely probable. ' The St. Lawrence river has been deepened, and the channel widened, straightened and sentineled, until to-day ships of 10,000 tons are plying fearlessly where 20 years ago cratt oi nan tnai tonnage could not , float. Last year more ships visited Montreal sthan ever beforehand the imports and exports were the larg est in; Canada's history. But the pas senger traffic, esive in ,tne matter of im migrants, showed no proportionate ex pansion. .' . ) , Last the geographical disadvantages from which Canada's, Atlantic seaboard suffers make it , very doubtful if the service would ever be a really fast one. in the sense in ' which that phrase is usually , understood. The New York greyhounds have scarcely anything to obstruct them, for the whole ocean trip being able to run at full speedj until they near the land on either side". But the Canadian liner must slow down when she reaches the ice and fog-infested areas or else she will batter her self against a floe or the rocky coast of Newfoundland. Thus, while theoret ically the Montreal liner would gain a day on hsr New York rival she would really make no faster passage, on' an average, for she is plying in congested snd danger strewn waters for one-third of the whole voyage the stretch be tween Montreal and the Grand Banks, and only in the finest weather can she make her best speed. The prospects, therefore, of' a fast Canadian line are not very encouraging. When Baby Is Asleep. When your babe is asleep watch his face. If the eyelids are not perfectly closed suspect weakness. If you see a furrow passing from either side of the nose round the mouth there is probably something the matter with stomach or Intestines. A furrow from either mouth corner, passing outward, may indicate something wrong with the throat or lungs. None of these signs is conclu sive; but they are infinitely valuable in causing the careful parent to investigate the state of the child's health. B,eal Jeffersonian.
