Starch were used. In order to get the
desired stiffness, it is usually neces
sary to use so much starch that the
boauty and fineness of the fabric is
hidden behind a paste of varying
thickness, which not only destroys the
appearance, but also affects the wear
ing quality of the goods. This trou

Defiance Starch, as it can be applied
much more thinly because of Its great

How Two Country Lads Gained Fame
A boy's elders are guilty of a foolish
act when they snub him because he
says or does something which they
don't understand. A boy's personal
ity is entitled to as much respect as
a man's, so long as he behaves him
self. Some of the most important Inven
tions have been the work of boys. The
Saw the Boy Playing Marbles at the
invention of the valve motion to the
steam engine was made by a mere
boy. Newcome's engine was In very
incomplete condition from the fact
that there was no way to open or
close the valves except by means of
levers operated by the hand.
Newcome set up a large engine at
one of the mines, and a boy, Humph
rey Potter, was hired to work these
valve levers; although this was not
hard work, yet it required his constant
As he was working the levers he
saw that parts of the engine moved in
the right direction, and at the same
time might be made to open or close
He procured a strong cord, and
made one end fast to the proper part
of the engine, and the other end to
the valve lever; and then he had the
satisfaction of seeing the engine move
with perfect regularity of motion.
A short time after, the foreman
came around and saw the boy playing
marbles at the door. Looking at the
engine, he saw the ingenuity of the
boy - and also the advantage of so
great ah' invention.
The idea suggested by the boy's in
ventive genius led to putting it in
practical form, and made the steam
engine an automatic working ma
chine. The power loom is the invention of
a. farmer's boy who had never seen
or heard of such a thing, says the
Detroit Free Press. He whittled out
one with his Jack knife, and. after he
had got it all done, he with great en
thusiasm showed it to his father, who
at once kicked it to pieces, saying
that he would have no boy about him
who would spend his time on such
foolish things. -
The boy was sent to a blacksmith to
learn a trade, and his master took a
lively interest in him. He made a
loom of what was left of the one his
father had broken up and showed it
to his master.
The blacksmith saw he had no com
mon lad as an apprentice and that
the invention was a valuable one. He
had a loom constructed under the su
pervision of the boy.
It worked to their perfect satisfac
tion, and the blacksmith furnished
the means to manufacture the loom,
and the boy received half the profits.
In about a year the blacksmith wrote
to the boy's father that he should
bring with him a wealthy gentleman,
who was the inventor of the cele
brated power loom.
You may bo able to judge of the
astonishment at the old home when
his son was presented to him as the
Inventor, who told him that the loom
was the same as the model that he
had kicked to pieces but a year be

GIRL DEFIED AN ARMY.
Pretty Charlotte Hiilman Asked Toll
for Soldiers and the Bill Was Paid.
It is related that the army, headed
by Sheridan and his staff, left Win
chester by the valley pike early In
the morning, the column moving to
ward Stephens City. Just as day was
approaching the staff reached the toll
gate and was discomfited by a young
and beautiful girl, Charlotte Hiilman,
famed locally for her girlish charms.
Even the war-hardened Sheridan
seems not to have been proof against
the persuasion of a pair of black eyes
and a pretty face, and when toll was
demanded straightway produced the
tithe, setting an example that was fol
lowed by his staff.
"But," said Sheridan, as he passed
through the gate, "I cannot vouch lor
When the common, soldiery came
the girl again lowered the toll bar and
demanded toll. This was met by jeers
from the guard. All . day the dusty
troopers passed through, and all day
Charlotte Hiilman stood at her post.
For every ten soldiers who passed
through the gate she cut a notch in the
toll pole. Early fled beyond the Blue
Ridge with the remains of his disor
ganized army; in the valley of Vir
ginia, Lee, beaten back by Grant's
overwhelming numbers, gave up the
fight; in the. southeast Joe Johnston
fired the last burlesque shots and
peace came again over the north and
south. Then, when relations with
Washington had been re-established
and the administration's policy was
one of magnanimity, Charlotte Hill
man counted the notches in the toll
pole and sent her bill to Washington.
And the bill was paid.

BOY KEPT SCRATCHING.
Eczema Lasted 7 Years Face Was All
Raw Skin Specialists Failed, But
Cuticura Effected Cure.
"When my little boy was six weeks
old an eruption broke out on his face.
I took him to a doctor, but his face
kept on getting worse until it got so
bad that no one could look at him.
His whole face was one crust and
must have been very painful. He
scratched day and night until his face
was raw. Then I took him to all the
best specialists in skin diseases but
they could not do much for him. The
eczema got on his arms and legs and
we "could not get" a "night's sleep' in
months. I got a set of Cuticura Reme
dies and he felt relieved the first time
I used them. I gave the Cuticura
Remedies a good trial and gradually
the eczema healed all up. He is now
seven years old and I think the trou
ble will never return. Mrs. John G.

REPORTS FROM WESTERN CAN
ADA ARE VERY ENCOURAGING.
A correspondent writes the Winni
peg (Man.) Free Press: "The Pinch
er Creek district, (Southern Al
berta), the original home of fall
wheat, where it has been grown with
out failure, dry seasons and wet, for
about 25 years, is excelling itself this'
year. The yield and quality are both
phenomenal, as has been the weather
for its harvesting. Forty bushels is a
common yield, and many fields go up
to 50, 60 and over, and most of it No.
1 Northern. Even last year, which was
less favorable, similar yields were in
some cases obtained, but owing to the
season the quality was not so good. It
is probably safe to say that the aver
age yield from the Old Man's River to
the boundary will be 47 or 48 bushels
per acre, and mostly . No. 1 Northern.
One man has just made a net profit
from his crop of $19.55 per acre, or
little less than tho selling price of
land. Land here is too cheap at pres
ent, when a crop or two will pay for
it, and a failure almost unknown. Nor
is the district dependent on wheat, all
other crops do well, also stock and
dairying, and there is a large market
at the doors in the mining towns up
the .Crows Nest Pass, and in British Co
lumbia, for the abundant hay of the
district, and poultry, pork, , and gar
den truck. - Coal is near and cheap.
Jim Hill has an eye on its advan
tages, and has Invested here, and is
bringing the Great Northern Railroad
soon, when other lines will follow."
The wheat, oat and barley crop in

them are Americans) rich. The Cana
