One motorist even goes so far as to claim that ho Jms been able to increase his' mileage per gallon i as much us 20 per cent., though it would seem that the increase cannot be duo to the use of the camphor alone.

KINDNESS PAYS. TFI l?I ADVANTAGE' OF T. EVi'ING COWS HUMANELY. A writer says of the cow i.h it "sho • is a mother once a year and, like all' mothers, she requires csp&lt; rial care ttic cin:e tf jiiirttir't'on-." - - ]t seems as if the writer hsi&lt;l dis missed this question of motherhood in the cow too qoie'-ly, limiting it, as he did, to the.time of parturition. The function of motherhood extends for months, as lortg as J he cow is giving milk, and it is a wise, far seeing policy that &lt;l;sc&lt; rns the scor&lt;\ and bearing of this continuing Inac tion, and so ministers to the cow as to conduce to the greatest; j-rofit i.f the owner. There arc a great many stupid, lialt-blind dotish men frocpin;. cows. A wise old. former; -spea'uri&lt;; of a certain man in his emoloy, once, said: "I don't know what it is about the man, but he certainly can coax more milk out of the cows ho has in cli.irgc than any man I over saw. lie is very quie...

"He triod to givo tlio impression of. being without feeling," we arc told, "but nothing is more absurd. He was crammed with sentiment to his finger tips, but adopted a bru tal manner aud rough exterior to cover up the weakness of sentiment, and thus many a broken-hearted man and woman left him with the impression—entirely erroneous—that ho was a callous brute lacking in human sympathy." 1 Rhodes was very careless about his make a favourite of one particular coat, and wear it every day. One such favourite he at last ordered to be sent to the tailor to be cleaned and mended. Mr. lo Sueur re ceived it back next day with the following note :—"Dear Sir,—Here with the Right Honourable G. J. Rhodes's coat uncleaned and un mended. We regret that all we can do with the garment is to make a new coat to match the buttons." Mr. lc Sueur deals with the alle gati...
