Mrs. William Squier, of Ateo, New Jersey, who was doomed to die by her doctors just one year ago, is now cured, and has left her bed, where \ for many months she had lain a help less cripple, suffering continuously from an intestinal tumor. Her case; has excited world-wide interest, be-, cause Mrs. Squier, regarding her. case as hopeless, appealed to the Legisla ture for a law permitting euthanasia for herself and other victlnis, equally unfortunate, who had. been "pro nounced incurable." * The controversy raised by Mrs. Squier's plea for the right to die con-, tinued throughout the . summer months, the two sides apparently be-, ing about equally divided.

MILL-BOY MILLIONAIRES. "1 think I have succeeded because I cared more for my credit than for my clothes." To Mr. Frederick Weyer hi'.euser, tin: lumber king and "secret millionaire" of America, who died re cently. is attributed this saying. It is probably true, for Weyerhaeuser, whose wealth is estimated at any thing up to .U 100,000,000, attributed his unusual success to his ability to gain and keep the trust of everyone wiili whom he came into contact. Wry little is known of the personal ity of W'eyorhaeuser, whose entire life-work was based oil the idea of secrecy, lie went to America when hr- was about eighteen years of age, and began life as a youth in a saw mill. Ultimately he bought the mill and laid the foundation of hiB huge fortune, when, while on a visit to Wis consin forests, he realised that, for all their vastuess, tiiey were not in e.xhaUBtible, and that within a com paratively few years the supply o£ lumber would be incommensurate with its demand.

THE REWARD. A ROMANCE OF THE KENSINGTON GARDENS. The horseshoe lay closo to the bench in Kensington Gardens where Eric Mallory sat and shivered in his nuiuy suit, lie rose and picked it up, half-ashamed of himself for his super stition.
