CRUSHING REBUKE. Ia the early days of railways, on some of the lines smoking was not allowed at all, either in the trains or on the station buildings. One day a station-master of a large station, a man noted for his conccit and pomposity, descried a gentleman pacing the platform with a cigar in nis mouth. , He at once accosted the offender and. requested him forthwith to stop smoking. The gentleman took no notice of this command, but con tinued to walk, emitting a silvery cloud. The station-master asked him to stop.smoking more peremptorily than before; but still the owner' of the .Havana maintained a provoking dis regard. A third time the order was repeated, accompanied with the threat that if the obstinate sinner did not obey he would be handed over to the tender mercies of the porters. The stranger took no more heed than" before, so at last the official, completely losing his temper, pulled the cigar out of the smoker's mouth and flung it away. This violent act produced no more e...

CARE OF CREAM. _ For the factory manger to turn out a* first-grade butter he requires the help of the farmer. The cream must be delivered in the best "order- pos sible. Cleanliness in the dairy is an essential condition. Cream cans are returned washed, but it is very neces sary that they should bo thoroughly cleansed and scalded again at the farm before use. For segarating, a special room should be provided, at least 30 yards to windward of the milking shed, have a concrete, floor, be provided with good drainage, well .ventilated, and have a good supply of water. The milk should be separated as soon as possible, and while the yanimal heat is in the milk. The 'cream should at once be cooled to the lowest possible temperature; and,, as the water required is small, this should-present no serious difficulty. Under no circumstances should cream ftom one- skimming be mixed with cream from another skimming unless it has first been well cooled. The most unsatisfactory of all suppliers is th...

The doga walked' up and haa a look at it, and turned away, obviously bored and uninterested. Evidently che~sub ject was too familiar. They woke up, nowever, when an elephant came splashing into a pool or water and ap peared to 'be walking into, the room. A massive bulldog made a dash for the-screen.

Late or heavy suppers arevcom mop cause . of' insomnia, especially - that form of it in which peopib fall into a heavy sleep, only to awakeWvith . a start an hour or two later and\lind themselves unable to sleep againintil early morning perhaps. Digestion comes almost to a dead stop during sleep, so that sufficient time should be allowed for the last meal to be dis posed of before the hour for retiring..

In any case, the food' .vhicli is taken then ought to be of a" light nature, and riot include pork, aold meat', or any other article of diet • which is slow of digestion. Coffee and strong tea are unsuitable at this . lour, as-Lhey tend to cause 'sleep- ' lessncss. 'Coeoa, made with' water, is i much better 'beverage for use with .1 e evening meal or after it.
