Save during the rainy season Lake Lefroy, in western Australia, is quite dry. But as the water evaporates as the hot weather approaches a smooth glassy floor of crystalline salt is de posited. Those living on the shores have found a means of utilizing this, All boats which sail on the lake when possible are, during the rainy season, fitted with four wheels, and thus are enabled to continue their travels. As Lake Lefroy has an area of 100 miles, and the surrounding coun try Is extremely rough, this means a great saving in expense, labor and time. The. speed attained by these wheeled yachts Is very considerable though not quite equal to the pace of the Ice yachts so popular in Canada.— Cincinnati Enquirer. A Girl** Ida* mi Boy*. At an examination in a certain school for girls ou essay on "Boys" was ordered written, and this was one of the compositions: "The boy is not an animal, yet he can be heard to a considerable distance, When a boy hollers he opens his mouth like a frog's, but girls hold their tongue till they are spoke to, and they answer respectable, and tell just how it was. A boy thinks he is clever because he can wade where it is deep, but God made the dry land for every living thing, and rested on the seventh day. When the boy grows up he's called a husband and stays out nights, but the grew up girl is a widow and keeps house."

Some 20 or 23 years ago a gentleman of this place was elected constable, and although he had no opposition his nerv ousness as to the result was quite no ticeable all during the day. After the polls closed and he was declared elect ed he hied him to the river bank, in the meantime having armed himself with an old pepper box pistol, one of the earliest patterns of the revolver, aud shortly after was heard to go through this colloquy with some one unseen. Pointing his pistol at a syca more tree he exclaimed in dignified and dramatic style: Halt! I am constable of this dis trict and command you to halt. You won't, eh? Well, here goes"—bang! "I hate to do it. but it is In the discharge of my official duty. Now, I told you to stop, but you wouldn't"—bang!

When a builder wants to put up a per manent structure, he looks well to the foundation. He digs deep and lay3 the stones with exactness and precision. He "trues" and "plumbs" and "levels." A defect or weakness in the foundation wilt affect everything above it. A solid foundation is an absolute necessity for a solid house. In the physical structure the stomach is the foundation. Up on it depends the support of every other organ in the body. It is. the weak and disor-^A dered stom ach that causes indi gestion, im pure blood, general de bility, nerv ou sn e s s, sleeplessness, and all the woes of dyspep sia. It is the disordered stomach that makes thin, impoverished blood, where microbes of consumption flourish and mul tiply. It is the weak and disordered stom ach which brings about conditions that cause a hacking cough, sore throat, bron chitis, weak and bleeding lungs. To make the foundation of your physical structure solid so that the rest of the or gans may successfully resist the attacks of disease, nothing equals Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. This medicine is tonic, an appetizer, a blood purifier, a nerve builder, a flesh matter, a foe to weak* ness and a blessing to worn-out and run down humanity. It is a non-alcoholic specific for every disease that comes in ad vance of consumption. It is a distinct remedy and stands alone. Nothing is like it, and there is no substitute for it. It a record of thirty years of cures. Mrs• I.ula He])?ecoke, qf Dozirr. Collings worth Co.. Texas, writes: "I was trmhlcd for seven or eight years with indigestion and liver complaint, and received more benefit from the use of Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery and 'Pleasant Pellets' than any medicine I have ever tried."
