A chemist has to listen to other people's troubles all day Jong, and sometimes half the night, too—it's pretty trying, and one gets very weary of it, I can tell you—and sometimes 1 get to run down that 1 go right off my food, and the only thing 1 can touch is a cup of tea. ■ Now, provided tea is pure, and not overdrawn in the making, it Is .about as good a thing as you c»ft take when you feel very tired, and there's certainly nothing that you can drink with your meals that's nicer or better for you— tea's much better even than fresh water, because to make tea the water must be boiled, which kills all the germs in it — whereas, when you drink plain water you swallow the germs alive. Robur is the purest tea that can be got, and 1 can recommend the No. 1 Grade—it really is wonderfully nice tea. . . . ■- Tht Chemist: A'o® • 4 • A • & • Young Mr. Lissy (to his pretty cousin): I say, Maudie, how did my song, "Home Again From a Foreign Shore," seem to impress the company?

When' he:had- been washed, and had found fault with . this ibungler who knew so little' how to get - black off Chubby faces, he. asked, if the-grand folk had "done tea yet"; and when In formed that this was dinner,.the para dox kept him silent for many-minutes. "Is Lally going to have dinner,, too?" "Certainly she is. Now come along, old chap, and you. shall have: some thing very good.". They sat down in the restaurant,., and a waiter began to serve them. Dfesdy was all for eating sardines by holding them up by the^end of the tail and swallowing; them piecemeal;, he seemed astonished when .Hugh cor rected him, and sat. there a>little pa thetically with.-a fish in his hand and the blue eyes wide open. "How do.you do it, Hugh?" "With a fork—like this, Desdy." "But I shove it into my lap when 1 'do that. What, does the man make that-row...

This modern reader of riddles, Mr. Balsillie, the ■Commonwealth wireless • expert, claims to have solved the problem of rain-making that has puzzled the wits of men for untold ages. For some time back it has been known that Mr. Balsillie was of the opinion that he had by means of electrical science obtained a mastery over the clouds. That, even in these days of scientific marvels, must rank as something ex traordinary. Mr. Balsillie has taken preliminary steps towards turning his discovery to practical use by lodging an application for letters patent for his rain-making devices, and it i...

The Degree of Annoyance. The Kaiser, who has apparently banned. the "tango," has a habit of gently trigging at his left ear when anything bothers him. One day, some years ago, when he was on a visit to England, he was handed a telegram'. The contents of the message apparently displeased him, for he Immediately began tug ging at his ear. The Prince of Wales, then a small boy, watched the performance with considerable interest. "Uncle," he said at length, "why are-you pulling your ear?" "Because I'm annoyed, I suppose," replied'the kaiser. . "And' when you're very annoyed," persisted vthe young- Prince,, "what do you dp then?" "Then I pull somebody else's!" an nounced His Majesty viciously. "You're terribly severe in your re ligion, Donald. I suppose you think we're all going to perdition, and no body will be saved but you and your minister!". "I'm. not go sure o' that," said; Don ald, thoughtfully.

SING A SONG. If you'll sing a song as you go along In the face of the real or the fancied ■wrong In face of the doubt, if you'll fight it out, And show a heart that 1b brave and stout; If you'll laugh at the jeers and refuse the tears, You'll force the ever-reluctant cheers That the world denies when a coward cries, To give to the man who bravely tries; And you'll win success with a little song— If you'll sing the song as-you go along. If you'll sing a song as you plod along You'll find that the busy, rushing throng Will catch the strain of the glad re frain; That the sun will follow the blinding rain, That the clouds will fly from the blackened sky, That the stars will come out by-and bye,. And you'll1 make new friends, till hope descends From where the placid rainbow bends. And all because of a little song— If you'll sing the song as you plod along.

GETTING TO SLEEP. Do your beBt to acquire the habit of going to sleep as soon as ever you get into bed. Don't coax yourself by reading, or anything of that kind; but just take it for granted that you are going' to bed straight to sleep, no matter whether you are in jjour usual surroundings or not. You will not succeed in "popping off" immedi-i ately at first, but each time you try | it will grow easier, till at last you i will acquire a sleep habit which will I be worth a great deal to you in years to come. A rather mean man, going out to play golf, had failed to come to terms with the caddie and started off carry ing-the clubs himself. After watching a stroke or two the caddie resolved to get his own back. "Here, mister," he said, "give me the clubs; I'll carry them for nothing. It's worth it to see you play."
