;0 COLDS, COUGHS AND A LITTLE WISDOM Is it wise of you to keep that cold or cough hanging about you, lowering your vitality, reducing your efficiency, making you a ready prey to far greater ills? Of course not. You know your only wise course is to get rid of it at once and you can do this quite easily by taking SCOTT'S EMULSION of cod liver oil and hypophosphites of lime and soda. The hypophosphites have a special tonic effect on the organs of the chest and throat, the oil builds up sound, resistant tissue, fortifies the weak parts and braces the entire system. fJI Duleek, Co. Meath, Ireland, Jan. 2nd, 1905. "When I commenced using Scott's Emulsion I suffered from weakness and coughing the whole night through. I am now quite strong and have not been troubled with cough for a long time, Nurse Clarke." tj Scott's alone is oj made by the origi- nal perfected Scott process, which makes the oil thoroughly diges- tible and conse- quently gives you the full benefit of the nourishment contained in it. Always get Scott's. <1 Send for a free sample bottle and u The Good-Time Garden" (enclosing 4d. for postage and mentioning this paper). SCOTT & BOWNE, Ltd., JO-U, STONECUTTER STREET, LONDON, E.C.

"What is love?" asked the sweet girl, who was looking for a chance to leap. "Love," replied the old bachelor, "is a kind of insanity that makes a man call a two-hundred pound female his little turtle dove." Stillings: "Yes, women are careless enough about carrying their purses. But it is said a woman wouldn't be able to find her pocket if she had one." Weston: "I notice my wife never has any difficulty in finding mine." Fuddy "Speaking of measurements, what do you think of the metric system?" Duddy: "I think the same of it as nearly everybody I know does— that it will fc-2 a mighty good thing to adopt after we are all dead." Aunt Mary: "Nora, you're a cruel child. Let that cat go at OI:f'e:" Nora (banging the cat): "But she's been n.u £ <it v, auntie, an' I'm punishin' her. I told her it was for her own good, an' it hurt me mor'n if hurt her."

"That is a queer figure; why didn't vou make it an even 3s. ?" "Because 2s. 9 £ d. was all he had." "And now," whispered the lover, as he caught her in his arms, "what shall we do about the rope ladder? We shouldn't leave it hanging there." "Don't worry about it," replied the eloping damsel; father said he'd pull it up again, so that I couldn't get back." The Groom: "Would you mind if I went into the emoking-car, dear?"

Mistress (returning from holiday): "Why, Bridget, whatever hew become of the parrot?'' Bridget: "Well, you see, mum, after you left it looked a bit pining like, and didn't talk much, so the cook and I put it out of its misery, poor thing, and I had it stuffed for my new hat,' "No, I never carry my watch when I go out," she said, artlessly. "I am so careless that it wouldn't be safe. Why, a person could steal anything right from under my nose and I wouldn't miss it." Then the young man by her side stole a kiss, and she did not seem to miss it. Husband: "The theatre will be half over before we get started." Young Wife: "Well, I can't get theee gloves buttoned."

Er iddo farwyn gynar, cyn cyrhaedd ei bump-ar- ugain oed, gwnaeth ddiwrnod da o waith, a gadaw- odd esiampl dda ar ol i bobl ieuanc yr ardal. Credai a gweithredai yr adnod hono, Beth bynag yr ymaflo dy law ynddo, gwna ef a'th holl egni." Gwnai ei hun yn waaanaethg'ar yn mhob cylch. Yn ei alwedigaeth ddyddiol yr oedd yn ddiwyd, fel yr oedd yn enill cymeradwyaeth ei feistr, a parch ei gydweithwyr. Yn y cylch cymdeithaeol, yr oedd ar ei oreu i liniaru poenau dynion, ac i buro cymdeithas. Yr oedd yn un o aelodau goreu yr ambulance class. Meddai ar gydymdcimlad, nerve, a medr neillduol i drafod ac i luniaru poen- au pobl a gyfarfyddent a damweiniau. Anhawdd fyddai cyfarfod a'i gystal yn y cyfeiriad hwn. Hefyd, yr oedd yn ddirwestwr egwyddorol a chyd- wybodol. Yroedd yn aelod gweithgar a 11awen gyda'r Temlwyr Da. Derbyniwyd ef yn aelod o Eglnys Bethesda, Llangynwyd, tua dwy flynedd yn ol, ac ni fy neb yn fwy byw a gweithgar yn yr eglwys nag efe. Nid oedd dim yn ormod ganddo i'w wneud. Os buasai eisiau gwneud rywbeth ar y capel, dim ond ei awgrymu, gwelem yn bur fuan ei fod wedi ei wneud. Yn yr Ysgol Sul yr oedd yn athravp arddesbartho blant. Yn y gwasanaeth eisteddai yn nghanol y plant, i'w cadw yn dawel. Yr oedd y plant i gyd yn ei garu. Ni bu neb yn fwy ffyddlon yn y cyfarfodydd wythnosol, er fod ganddo tua dwyfilldir i gerdded, byddai yn bres- enol pa dywydd bynag fyddai. Fe ganodd ac fe ganodd yn ystod y Diwygiad gyda bias a hwyl orfoleddus. Pleser oedd ei weled yn taflu ei holl enaid 1 ganu mawl i Dduw. Sicr yw ei fod yn canu heddyw yn y nef. Bydd ei le yn wag iawn yn Bethesda. Rhodded yr Arglwydd ei debyg i ni eto. Ni bu bachgen mwy lion, siriol, a llawen yn eigartref nag efe. Yr oedd yn anwyl iawn gan y teulu i gyd, ond yr oedd ei fam ag yntau yn rhyfedd o glymedig wrth eu gilydd. Gwyn ei fyd ef heddyw." Taened y nefoedd ei hamddiffyn- iad drostynt fel teulu, ac yn neillduol drosy ddau fab sydd yn Neheudir Affrica.

His friends had now sub- scribed over £ 20 to give him a start in another country, and they promised to do so when he was released.—He was ordered three months' hard labour.

A MAGNANIMOUS QUEEN. You will remember, writes a correspondent in Italy, that there was a dastardly attempt to wreck Queen Margherita's mctor-car when she was nearinp her summer home in the Val du Lys last autumn. Three youths were convicted. One of them was sentenced to twenty years' im- prisonment, and the others to shorter terms. The Queen has just been to their prison, where she shook hands with them—bringing them the King's pardon! The good Queen said the young fellows were at the beginning of their lives; she felt that they did not know what they were do- ing when they placed those stones in her way: and she hoped that. with liberty, they might yet be happy and useful men. The immediate effect on the prisoners was mainly bewilderment. They could not realise that they were free once more.
TELEPHONElfFOR FRUIT-GROWERS The Board of Agriculture and Fisheries has been in communication with the Postmaster- General with reference to the recommendation made by the recent Departmental Committee on the fruit industry as to the desirability of the further extension of the telephone system in country districts. The Board has been informed that for some years past the Post Office has been steadily extending the trunk wire system to small towns and building up local exchange systems in nr. districts which !i^d previously been left untouched. The Posin;tor-General also informed the Board that he will be giad_ to receive any specific suggestions as to further im- provement which m;:y be submitted on behalf of I le fruit growers, and aL..o as to the localities where the need of the telephone for the purpose of this industry is most pressing.
