London, Juno 14.-Leaving the British coast this week is a little rteet of which the like Is to Ik� found in no other ptitX of the world. It Is coni-Iio.sod of the ships* of the Hudson:.* llay Cottvimny, which accor*11ng to custom, 1ms hilvrnated in LorWlon. But now that the warm nnd ploamint weather is here this little fleet of sailors is oft on the annual bu turner cruine. Otic by one the ships have dropped down the Thames ladenwith stores. Later in tho year they will come hack, some of them wHh furs, tho .spoil of the trappers cf the far Northwest. Wry gradually do 4he*v ships wake up from their winter torpor in the decks of London. Only a few weeks ago a stranger espying the IVtican, tho Dlscoverery nnd the Stork might "have naked "What ancient craft are these?" To all npiiearances, the boats had passed the sphere of usefulness. Hut word went forth that the ships must get ready for yet another commission. The Stork and the IVI-ienn weiv towitl away for examination ami hull painting in dry dock, and shortly afterwards the Discovery followed milt. Then the trio were hauled back to their births and a general overhaul began. LONKSOMti VOYAGE. Unbroken, isolated is the fute of voyages made by these Hudson's Bay fur traders. Now that they are leaving the British coast it is probable that nothing more will l>e heard of them until the autumn when they return laden with stores. They may, by chance, s|>eak a ship on the Atlantic but their course is too far io the north to a (Ton I much of an opportunity for that sort of thing. There is no reporting their arrival ut thechief trading station at Charlton Island in Hudson Bay. They will proreed to unload their mlscellunecus out  ward cargo, and then take on thefar more valuable freight which they bring home. The story of the Stork in the winter d 1904-05 is of itself typical of what may happen in those lonely seas. Captain Ford, who is now commanding the Discovery, left Clin**! ton Island in the Stork In Septvirt -lier 14*0-1. for I^ondon having on board many thousands of dollars worth of furs. By Christmas noth  Ing had been heard of the vessel.and it was recognized that the only hot* of her safety lay in the possibility that she might have Ih-hmi frozen up. This actually proved to Itc the case, but H was not tint I Ut to end cf Feb- ruary. 1905, that a message was got through to Winnipeg, whence a cable was sent to London, which at once dispelled tho alarm of underwriters. The W. C. T. U. IT CI'MOD HIM "There goes a young man whom I saved from going �to the dogsthrough drink," remarked a court stenograph or. "lie is n tip-top fellow, ami has plenty of nhillty, but two or three years ago he began to let red liquor get the hotter of him. "Ho had a good position at the time, and 1 don't think he exactly neglected his work, but it got to lie a common thing to see him standing around l>arrooms in tho evening nbtut two-thirds full ami talking foolishly. A few of his intimate friends took the lllvrly of givtnghim n quiet hint. As usual, in such cases \ht got highly indignant, and deiile* point-blank that he had ever been In the least umfer tho influence of liq -nor. All the same, he kept increas  ing the pace until it bocamo pretty easy to predict where he was going to land, and It was at that stage of tho game that I did my great reformation act. "l was sitting in an uptown restaurant one evening, when1 ho came in with some follows and took a seat without seeing me. He was Just drunk enough to be talkative al>out his private affairs and on the im -pulse of the moment I pulled out my notebook and took a full shorthand report of every word ho said. It was the usual maudlin talk of a boozy mon. and Included numerous candid dctuits of life. "Next morning I copied the whole thing neatly on the typewriter ami sent it to his oltte�\ In less Own an hour he came tearing to nie Bit INK A XI) WORRY. It is the patronage of the shop far more often than it low wage that s|>ells squalor homes, heartbreaks for wiv rum the in and every woe for the helpless and do* iwndcnt. Hence come rags, henco comes desolation, henco comes every form ol brutality, vice ami crime that disgraces humanity. VV>w wives are beaten, few homes oro turned hells because of hard work* and low wages; it is the drink evil, which wields the whip nml brings in the hell. There is no taskmaster who drives so cruelly as he, or lays on so heavy a lash. Much hard labor, lw>th In Its character and in Us rew-nrds. may to akin to slavery, but there Is no ixmdago so galling, no servitude which exacts so much, as the slavery e a result In the homes and by the firesides ofUhe world's tollers that will lejoice ntvl bless humanity. LOOK ON TIIK lUtUUITICIt SIDK. If you talk about .your ill-health it will make you less healthy. Worry about your work, it will make you less capable. Imagine you are disliked.

Talk much of what you are going to do, you will never do it.
