=::==:.ft==:===-=-=:=:=.= "w ELECTIONEERING IN THE SNOW. Serious floods were caused in the LotMani on Monday by the melting of the snow which had fallen heavily for days. Rivers over- flowed their banks, and miles of land were under water. In Berwickshire drifts over twenty feet high still remained. In the Lauder district the railway line was opened after a stoppage of four days. Several ham- c lets had been completely cut off from outside communication for five days. While returning from his campaign in West Fife, Mr. John D. Hope, M.P., was snowed up near Tranent. His motor-car was extricated by miners from a snowdrift, but after proceeding some distance the car again became embedded, and it was found impos- sible to get any further. Mr. Hope had to remain overnight at Tranent. The Sunday mails were despatched from Kirkby Stephen by sledge to Tebay, but snowdrifts eight feet high blocked the road, and the driver had to return to Kirkby Stephen, which he reached about midnight in an exhausted condition. The gale along the south coast of Ireland continued with unabated severity on Mon- day, and much damage was done to the gear of the fishing fleets. Polling in the West Cork constituency was carried on under great difficulties owing to the snow. The candidates and their friends found it almost impossible to travel, and in many cases their cars had to be abandoned.
SOUTH POLE FOR BRITAIN. Captain Scott, leader of the forthcoming British Antarctic Expedition, gave some par- ticulars of his plans at a meeting of the London Miniature Rifle League at Southwark on Mon- day night. His ship, the Terra Nova, would carry fifty- three men, and after twenty-two had; been landed at McMurdo Sound, at Sir E. Shackle- ton's quarters, he hoped to leave another six at a part where no one had yet landed-King Edward's Land. Arriving in December, the party would erect huts and land stores, and in February and March he hoped to see some lay- ing out of depots. Twenty ponies, twenty-five dogs, and some motor-sledges would accompany the expedition. Of the latter, which were now being built in England, he expected great things. He hoped to get a good deal of provisions 200 or 300 miles to the south before the Antarctic winter started in May. The main journey for the Pole would prob- ably start in October, 1911. They had got to get over 800 miles, and the probability was that they could not do more than ten or fifteen miles a day. The day on which he wanted to get to the Pole was the midsummer day down there- what would be mid-winter here—December 22 —and he hoped to get back about the middle of March, 1912. If he could not get to the Pole at the first attempt he hoped to do it the next year, and if they failed then he hoped the young men who were going with him would want to try third time. When they got their base established, the party would not leave that place until the thing was done. He did not say it in any boastful spirit, he did not say he would do it, but the main thing was to lay down plans so that some British subject shottfefc-tosfr the first to reach the South Pole.
TRAGEDY OF NO WORK. After being out of work for over twelvo months, Jacob Vogt, thirty-seven, a public- house and restaurant manager, of Courtney- road, London, N., got up from his bed and cut his throat. Written in German, a letter was found in to shest of drawers, saying:— Dear Sister and Brother-in-law and Children,—I am sorry to have to tell you that I cannot get a situation, and haven't got any money. We have given up our rooms. We have nothing to live for, and nothing to eat, and no shelter. It is shock- ing that I must write to you. I have run my legs off to look for work, but I could not find any My wife sold every- thing what did belong to her to live upon. Her friends did help us when, they could. They could do no more. Dear brother-in- law and sister, we beg you to keep the children with you, and when naughty and they do not behave Ihemselves please punish them, and make them better. The jury returned a verdict of "Suicide while of unsound mind," at the inquest on Monday.
THE WRESTLING CURATE. I The Rev. Everard Digby, the Coventry wrestling and boxing curate whose unortho- dox methods of conducting St. Michael's Mis- sion caused considerable interest, is definitely leaving, and his sucecssor is the Rev. W. F. Hird, a local curate. It was only last September that a settle- ment was arrived at whereby Mr. Digby was to remain after acute controversy over the question of reserved seats in St. Michael's Church for ordinary services, and payments for admission to sacred concerts. It was ar- ranged that he should stay, with a promise of a sphere of wider work being found, but he found himself unable to accept the Bishop of Worcester's proffered appointment. lie ¡ says it is probable he may accept work at Wimbledon. During Mr. Digby's two and a half years in Coventry he has got together wonderful gatherings of working men, including many who had never attended religious services at any kind.
SENTENCE OF DEATH. At the Bucks Assizes on Monday, before the Lord Chief Justice, Amy Pannell was sentenced to death for the murder of her infant male child at West Wycombe. The evidence showed that the body of the child wa6 found thrown by the side of the railway,deltth having been, caused, .by stran- gulation with a boot lace tied tightly round the neck. The jury recommended the prisoner to mercy, and his lordship said he would for- ward their recommendation to the Home Secretary.
About E220 has been received recently bsI I Mr. A. D: Acland; hon. treasurer of the Khar- 5 toum Cathedral Fund, as the result of the special appeal made in connection with the ) anniversary of General Gordon's death twenty- five years ago,
.oo-> HOME HINTS. I 9 Fresh raw meat is the best bait for mice traps. Lime-water will sweeten jars and jugs which soap and water fail to cleanse. It is admirable for cleansing milk vessels and nur- sing bottles. Rugs should not be shaken, but hung on a line in the open air and carefully beaten with a cane beater kept for the purpose. To make the hair dry and fluffy, take eau- de-Cologne one ounce, rectified spirits of wine two ounces, powdered carbonatc of soda half an, oi'.isce, water six ounces. Rub this lotion well into the scalp. Scraps of cream cheese may be made useful by mixing them with butter and mUK or a little cream. This should be spread on thin, waferlike crackers, made into sandwiches itn. served with salad. An umbrella should not be opened out to dry, as the stretchers are apt to warp in the bent form, giving an unsightly appearance when the umbrella is closed. The silk should be left to drain with the handle downwards, nd gently wiped with an old silk handker- chief. If you want to renovate a black chip hat, take a little salad oil and a fine brush. With a clothes brush remove all dust, and then 11 pply a little oil all over the hat, brushing it in well. Next rub the straw with a piece of black material, and the hat will be nearly equal to new at the cost of about a penny. | ———— Parisian French Beans.—This is a most popular vegetable course, and greatly appre- ciated by vegetarians. Take one pound of shredded and cooked French beans. Melt I half an ounce of butter in a stewpan, add two minced shallots, a tablespoonful of chopped parsley, and a few chives. Put in the beans, sssason with salt, pepper, nutmeg, and lemon juice. Toss the whole over a clear fire till the beans are thoroughly hot. Garnish with croutons and serve. I To take a spot from light cloth put some ,flour into the oven, and when thoroughly hot (but not discoloured) rub it on the soiled part, using a piece of clean flannel for the purpose, When the flour is discoloured, brush it off and apply fresh. Two or three applications may be necessary. Carrot Soup.—Boil some carrots, drain and mash through a colander. Add them to a tablespoonful of butter, which has been cooked with a tablespoonful of arrowroot or flour. Add a pint or more of hot stock, half a teaspoonful of salt, and a blade of mace. Finally, add one egg, beaten slightly, and a cupful of hot milk. The curative effects of salt have never been known as they should be. Sore and inflamed eyes are relieved by bathing with salt water. Sore throat yields to a gargle of the same. The most obstmate cases of constipation can be absolutely cured by the persistent use of half a teaspoonful of salt in a glass of water taken just before going to bed, or the first I thing in the morning. Baths of salt and cold water will rouse a sluggish skin to action, and will cure cold feet. Salt used occasionally as a dentifrice keeps the teeth free from tartar. Salt and water used on the hair now and then stops its coming out. To clean wall paper use the bread that has stood in a dry place for nearly a week. As soon as the surface is soiled cut it off. Wipe lightly down the paper; about half a yard at each stroke, until the upper part of the paper | is completed all round. Then go round again, I commencing each successive stroke a little higher than where the upper stroke finished, till all is done. higher than where the upper stroke finished, till all is done. A household economic authority says: "In caring for linoleum do not use soapsuds as for scrubbing a floor. It stands to reason j that soap is going to injure the varnish and the finish. On a farm where there is plenty of milk, a cloth wrung out of skim milk is the j best means of taking up the dust and brightening the linoleum. Where milk is scarce, or needed for food, use luke-warm vater, to which has been added half a cupful of kerosene oil or some good furniture polish. Wring the cloth rather dry from this, and go cvei the linoleum after sweeping, and it will be quite new and bright, and the finish un- injured." Chocolate Cream.—Take half a cupful of sngar, one pint of milk, a pint of cream, half an ounce of gelatine, two ounces of chocolate, a teaspoonful of vanilla, and half a cupful of water. Allow the gelatine to soak .until dis- solved. Whip the cream and grate the choco- late. Boil the milk and stir into it the choco- late and gelatine, stirring until the latter is thoroughly dissolved if it is not so already, c Take from the fire, add the sugar and vanilla, and when it begins to cool and thicken, add the whipped cream. Stir until thorougiuy mixed, then turn into a mould and put away to, cool. j To promote childrexi!s appetites there is o j better plan than to give them plenty of out- door exercise, fun, and frolic; make them I regular in their habits, and feed them only on plain, nourishing food, and the ywill seldom, if ever, complain of a lack of appetite. Never, however, keep them overtasked in school, or ¡ confine them closely to the house after school ¡ hours. If children are fed upon rich or highly-seasoned foods, nuts, etc., or allowed to eat between meals, it is hopeless to expect them to have an appetite for their propof meals. Don't allow them to study too much, and especially keep them from reading the I "penny dreadful." Sickness is the most ex- pensive nuisance in the world, and although there may be cases when it makes people or children better, it generally makes them sel- fish, sad, and misanthropical, mean, and miserable. The best way to make children happy and good is to keep them well. The following will make a good tincture for a shiny skin: Take one ounce of distilled water, eight minims of distilled tincture of 'rrsnder, and two grains of sulphate of zinc. Mix well together and apply four times a .l

FUN AND FANCY. Beggar: "Spare a penny, sir! I'm start* ing." Swell: "Here's sixpence for you. I don't care a. hang about your hunger, but for the sake of decency go and get shaved." "Ef I was thin like that," remarked the telegraph boy, gazing after the retreating figure of a slim masher, "I wouldn't pay no 'bus fares; I'd get in a. draught and blow down the street." "Why are you crying, my little man" 'Cos I don't want to go to school!" "Bali why not?" 'Cos my sister jilted the school- master last night "How is your husband, Mrs. Brownf asked the wife of a country vicar. "Poorly, ma'am, thankye! 'E wor gitten along nicely, but naow the doctor says 'e 'as got the conva- lescence "We obtain wool from sheep. The wool ia made into cloth, and with the cloth they make clothes. Now, Edmund, what is your overcoat made of?" "Of an old one crf father's, sir!" Young Cook (to policeman lover): "How aeatly you carve that goose!" With a and- den outburst of jealousy: You have de- ceived me! I am not your first love." "Do you play any instrument, Mr. Jiinp?' "Yes, I'm a cornetist." "And your tIIiflterf- "She's a pianist." "Does your mother play?" "She's a zitherist." "And your father?" "He's a pessimist." "I hadn't been talking with him three minutes before he called me an aes. What eort of a person is he?" "Well, I never knew him tell a lie." "Do come upstairs, mother," said the littJø boy to his mother as they stepped on to tramcar. "Not this time, dear, I'm in a hurry," she said, as she moved inside. "But, mother," convincingly, "doesn't the top go as fast as the bottom?" The Best Friend: "I hear her old hnshaaJ shows her a doglike devotion." The Casual Gossip: "Yes; they say he is always growl- ing at her." "Mr. Grumbley writes: I' don't see how you can have nerve to, sell your worthle" re- medy for half a crown a bottle.' Oh, in- deed Well, strike out 'have nerve to' and worthless,' and put the letter in our testi- monials." Mrs. Newlywed: "It's just brutal cf you to call it 'this stuff.' You said you'd be glad if I baked my own bread ftnd Mr. Newly- wed "Yes; but I didn't say I wanted you to bake mine." Firet Sportsman (with big load of game): "You don't appear to have had such good luck as I had." Second Sportsman (with empty bag): "No-o! My attendant wasn't as good a marksman as yours." The Vicar: Did you see a pedestriaa pass this way a few minutes ago?" Farm Hand: "No, sir. I've been workin' on fhia tater patch more'n a nower, and notter thing hae passed 'cept a solitary man, an' he was tramping on foot." A Miss Buchanan, once rallying her cousin, an officer, on his, courage, said Now, Mr. Harry, do you really mean to tell me you can walk to a cannon's mouth without fear?" "Yes," was the prompt reply, "or a Buchanan's either." And he did it. "Young man," said a father, "I don't want you to be too attentive to my daughter. Why—er—really," stammered the young man, "I had hoped to marry her some- "Exactly; and I'd like you to marry her, but if you're too attentive to her you won't have money enough to do it." "I never saw such a storm in all my life." "Pardon me, my friend; since you 'saw' the storm, no doubt you can tell us what colour it was." "Certainly! The wind blew and the storm rose, you ninny!" "What part of speech is 'kiss'?" asked a high school teacher of one of her pupils the other day. "A conjunction," replied one of the smart girls. "Wrong!" said the teacher severely. "Next girl." "A noun," answered j a demure little maiden. "What kind of a I noun?" continued the preceptress. "Well, it is both common and proper," answered the shy girl, and she was placed to the head of the class. Sir Leopold M'Clintock, the Arctic es- plorer, who died recently, was once giving an account of his experiences amid the icefields of the North. "We certainly would have travelled much farther," he explained, "had not our dogs given out at a critical moment." "But," exclaimed a lady, who had been listening very intently, I thought that the Eskimo dogs were perfectly tireless crea- tures." Sir Leopold's face wore a whimsi- cally gloomy expression as he replied, "I-sir —speak in a culinary sense, miss." During the South African War an Irielt trooper on outpost duty one night felt so desperately tired that he thought he would 1aavetive minutes' nap. Placing his helmet on a rock, he lay down, and was soon in a sound sleep. Waking suddenly, he mistook his helmet for one of the enemy, drew his sword, and dealt it a severe blow. Then, per- ceiving his mistake, the trooper picked up hit helmet, which he had cut in two, and gave thanks to heaven that he had taken it off before lying down. "For," he soliloquised, "had my head been inside that, it's ten to one a dead man I would have been seeing mesilf at this moment!" Fullcash (waking with a start in the middle of the night, and hearing sounds in his bed- room): "Who's there? Speak! Who's there?" Hoarse whisper from the darkness: "For goodness' sake, hush. There's a., burglar just gone downstairs; I'm a policeman, and if you'll keep quiet, and not, strike a light, I'll nab him in two twos." Fullcash obeys; and the whisperer, whose name is Sikes, amblee gently downstairs and out of the back door with his booty. A teacher instructing a class in history asked one of the children how many wars England fought with Spain. "Six," the little girl answered. "Six? queried the teacher. "Enumerate them, please." "One, two, three, four, five, six," replied the child cheer- fully and confidently.
