A Man of Family BEtN'i a man of family, v. ith a wife and children, with a great flower garden and a pigeon-lott.and a t.irria.i^e and pair for poire to cliureh on Sundays, he began to take a keen interest in all legislntion affecting babies and mothers, and homes. The C.overnment appointed a milk commin-sicn, and Nickle was one ot the liusicst members on it, gathering Information and .TiiUins deductions that would prove useful to milk producers and milk con-sumera alike. Meantime Toronto bakers had been coming In conflict with the law in regard to the varying i\eit;hts ot loaves of bread. The law was not clear, and Nickle p.-oceeded to have St made clear. He introduced and secured legislation fixing tho weights of loaved so that people could alaays tell Just what tney wero getting for tlieir money. Having done this, and voted for whatever measure"? ho thought were good and against whatever measures he thought were not good, he ret'jrned to Kingston, and stood for tlectieTj to the House pf Commons in the fail of J311. and v.ls elected. Since then hl.w field of operatlor.s !,as been Ottawj, and the sweep of his vision wider. When the Finance Minister proposed reimbursing Farm-fi."i Bank denositors, Nickle rose from the henclies behin'l the Minia-trr and denounced tlie Minister's lourse! Yet it had all been fixed in the o.Tiiriis. It v.-r-t jinrt of the party program, .and s sj(h should have been fcupported by every (ton-Bervative-according to the rules of Oppowd C.N.R.

And it WOH likewise only natural that the Liberals and fonserv.-t-tlves ot Kingston should decide tliut Mr. Nickle was the best man In sight for the Job. Consequently he was nomlnatsd as Union candidate, and electsd by a tremendous majority. CA8B ALWAYS BEST.

Somo ono showed the rifle to tho Winchester company, with tho result that tfie company acquired tho patents. It was then lost to the name of Browning. The Winchester single shot rifle, *8 It was called, was made in several sizes from .i'i to .45 calibre, -rhls was tho beginning of Mr. Browni.tg s long career as an inventor of firearms. For a nunit>er of years all hla inventions went to the Winchester company, .\fter the single shot rifle, the Winchester arms known as tho 1hh6 model rifle, tho lover shotgun, tho '!�0 model rlfli-. 'oh model rifle. model shotgun and the 1900 model rifle were all Browning Inventions. .\Ir. Urowning was perfectly satisfied to do Ills work well and let It fist there/ It never occurred to him to .sec that his name appeared on his guns. That is VOiy thousands of Americans who have usa4l bla arms do not know who ho la. He began his experlmanta With machine guns In the early '90"s. As a i-esult of the.so experiments he produced the Colt machine gun. Something over twenty years ago tho Colt machine gun waa adopted by the United States Army and Navy. The latest machine gun Invented by Mr. Browning Is an Innovation In the machine gun field. It is so light that it can be fired from the shoulder like an ordinary ride. It weighs but fifteen pounds. As soon us the world conflict be-ramo a fact Mr. Browning again devoted his attention to machine guns. He developed two, one which Is water cooled and operated by the recoil With the cartridges fed on a belt, and the 94 model rlilc, 1�' model rifle, "j7 light machine rifle. Lost An Arm, Int^ented Improved Artificial One, and Got Big Job WHE.N William T. Carnes lost bin right arm he gaiiietl a big idea-one dO big that It Is putting hundrecis of cripples back on the active litt and may help thou-, sands maimc>d in the war. Carnes was nn expert young American mechanic. 111k weekly pay envelop had reflected the skill of that lost arm and hand. "You're done for," said his acquaintances. "Better get u Job peddlir.h before you use up your savlrgs." But Carnes had determined not to li I : Is Injury force him Into tho down-and-out class, and so he looked about for some means to make his determination gosd. He found that such artificial arms as � a Lould buy wire little nioro than sleevo-flllors, so ho set about designing one that would help hlni back to hli place In tho working world. He studied the anatomy of the arm and hand until ho undurstood It thoroughly, and then Ito piit Ills machinist's ukili to work to reproduce bone, m'J^cle, und tendon, with stoel levers, ratchet gearing, and cranks dovlsed so cunningly that every movement of the natural arm would be possible tor tho artMiulal one. That would have been a big task tor a skilled mechanlo with two good banUs. C'a|ne� jmt bruins aiid va- tience Into the scales against his lost arm. When his remaining hand could not do the work, he used hl� teeth. Countless experiments had to be made. Hometlmes it seemed as If th� task were an imposslbia ont. Ant his savings were melting away. But Carnes stuck. And presently camo til great day when bs strapped on his invention and proved it equal to any work he hi. 4 ever asked ot an arm. To show that it eould handle tools, he set to work at onoe on a second and better arm. Us finished It In ont quarter ot the time it had taken to make the first. That was the beginning of a new carter and a big success. To-day, In a Middle Western city, there Is a factory where artificial limbs are mads, and every one ot the dozen or more workmen Is a cripple, - }y\B lost an arm or even both arms -and }ct does tho same skillod work and receives tho same pay as do other mechanics who use the arms they wore born with. The office force are like the worlimsn. The president of the compeny lacks an arm and a leg; the treasurer lost an arm and gained an intsreat in the business at the same tima; and Uis sccrstary and factory aiaBMsr la ;
