WORTH REPEATING. 1 ; o : --- HUMOUR-ALLEGED and OTHERWISE. -o Marie was a stubborn little miss and was accustomed to assert her wishes in a most decided manner. One day when she refused to do what she was asked, by "I won't," her mother said, "Marie, I don't want to hear you say that again." "Well, what shall I say when I mean I won't?" was her reply. . . . . Ted asked his mother, "What is our new baby's name ?" Mother said, "The baby hasn't any name yet." Ted then replied, "Then how did he know he belonged to us ?" * . # . Only 14 months between Buford and Philip made many people suppose them twins. When Buford started to school he was given a hair cut that changed their re- semblance considerably. "No more twins now?" he exclaimed with great satisfaction. * . . * Harry was telling of all the wonderful game» played at his little chum's birthday party. "I hope you didn't forget to be a good boy," put in mother. "I'm not sure, ma, I was havin' such a good time I didn't pay any 'tenti...

Like all good stories it has a. hero-and a heroine. The digger's name was Snowy. He was a young, slightly built, likeable lad, and on account of an injury to his back, which left a hole into which a man could put his fist, Snowy was marked for -permanent light duty. He put in his time cleaning up around the lines of the camp and applying for leave. He was the leave expei't of the camp-he even saved up leave until he had four days due to him.

Tho sen I Bible man or woman, however, keeps a j Bharp eye on the little signs of ill health, and takes a remedy like Dr. ! Morse's Indian Root Pills to aid digea Í tion and help Nature over Borne obstrue I lion, caused by too much food or drink. There is no better remedy for this pur- pose in this or any other country, and their ever-increasing use by all classes of tho community bears testimony to their high efficiency, j» The best advice that can be given is to always have a bottle of these ...
