Jack after an exciting chase in which boy and dog had howled and barked a most powerful duet now Stub we'll wash ths breakfast won't Stub looked a knowing aagent and sat gravely on a chair which he first knocked the cat while Jack washed and dried the few dishes as deft as a girl He had lived here as long as he could remember His earliest recollection was looking at the bright reflector up stairs and seeing in it a sweet loving face with teuder bine eyes near his own His next memory of the face was in a coffin pale and still while his father held his hand and the minister from the village talked in a low sad tone But this was years ago when Jack was as he would inform you only a little fellow Now from his dignified age of ten years he felt himself arrived at man's estate His father was formerly a sailor but in con- sequence of losing some of his fingers in the icy regions of the north he had to accept the position of a lighthouse the sea too well to thins for a moment of any work Such stones as he used to tell Jack in the winter days when they would be cut off by snowdrifts from the rest of the world Such thrilling adventures de- the boy's ears in the long soli- tary evenings Stories of the time on Labrador when a tremendous whale cap- sized a crow and two men got drowned of the mutiny that once broke out on the Fair Betsy and the sneaking Italian who got put in irons for ing it Jack would go to bed with a creepy kind of feeling after these stories but the morning light always drove away the shadows and he would vow to himself never to let such ridiculous stories frighten him again Stub let's play Robinson Crusoe in the yard now the dishes are all washed Jane to the you can come too if you said Jack opening the door Stub accepted the invitation for himself and Jane by making a dart at her as she lay blinking near the stove and rushing her out doors with scant ceremony This shed here shall be the cave and I'll wear father's fur cap and be Bobinson Crusoe You can be Friday Stub You are black and you don't know and Jane shall sit up here en the woodpile and be the parrot Now Friday you just stay there while I go to get some sticks for the and Jack making his work into play worked with a will while the waves romped and tossed about on the shore like merry children and a little gray cloud no bigger than a man's hand rose slowly in the north and made another dash of color in the sky Why I declare if it ain't going to I wish father would hurry up How the clouds have come and they Took heavy too as if they were just bursting with

stairs and finally by a ladder to a trap door The roof and walls from about four feet from the floor were glass and the light lamp and reflector stood on a kind of standard about five feet high All the beautiful brass plates were kept as brilliant as a mirror and the windows were ent and speckless as pure water It was John Hudson's duty to keep them in this condition Inspectors were always dropping in at unexpected times and dismissal from the post would have lowed any lack of proper attention to these details But it was the lighthouse to keep them bright and burnished even beyond any

in winter will determine our efficiency for work in the day and will so influence our whole be- ng for that period of time that no after meal can correct The breakfast in winter must contain more nitrogenous ood than in summer it is absolutely You must store heat to furnish material for absorption and for ing vitality add to this nitrogenous food something that will disengage heat from blood aud keep up temperature and 701 may defy the coldest day Tour ace may feel it but your body will be to it and go on disengaging hat inward heat which can alone stand against the lowest temperature without If this meal has been properly at- ended to we may presume that vital can be maintained in full force for five hours at least before it needs re- plenishing THINGS TO Very few mothers are able

from it If ton and sweet oil are not at hand take a cloth and spread dry flour over it and wrap the burned part in it It is always well to have some simple remedies in the house where you can get them without a moment's loss of time a little bottle of peppermint in case of colic chlorate of for sore throat pepsin for and a bottle of brandy Have them arranged so that you can get hold of them in the
