No matter how barren the tree nor how leafless it may seem, you confidently expect leaves again. And why? Because there is life at the roots.

Joaquin Miller, the well known poet, who was among the Roanoke's passen- ^, briefly expressed the general tenor of the stories told by the Roanoke's passengers as follows: The Klondike mines are certainly the richest ever found on the face of the earth, hut this gold is tenfold harder to £ft than in any camp I have ever seen.'! This is { list of those having the largest Individual amounts: Ixampleg of Cunning IVhlfch Arc Clearly McAnt, to Deceive. Although we often find the lower tnlmals put forward as models from which man might learn a lesson In many virtues, it appears, upon closer examination, that there is scarcely a vice known among men in which some one or more animals will not be found proficient. Take the vice of lying, for Instance; it has not, I think, been generally noticed how prevalent Is this propensity among animals. Some Instances are, of course, familiar. The lapwing lures the trespasser away from its nest by distressful cries and a pretense of helplessness due to a broken wing, but would anyone suspect the common goose of the same vice? "Why, it has not the brains to be a liar!'' most of your readers would exclaim. And yet it Is shown In Louis RobUison's "Wild Traits In Tame Animals' that every time a goose or gander stretches out Its neck and hisses at an Intruder It's acting a He to which the family has been addicted for ages. This habit, In fact, belonged to Its ancestors In the iflld state, when they nested among reeds and bushes, and originated In an attempt to make possible enemies keep clear of them under the Belief that they were serpents. There Is cool and deliberate lying for youJ Instead of taking to flight, the wild goose, when nesting, would lie low, with Its body concealed by the grass or reeds, and darting out snakelike head and neck, declare with a hiss that it actually was a snake. Any one, again, who has watched crows building their nests in spring will see thieving, with lying to follow, going on continually. One crow puts some sticks into its nest and goes off for more. Its neighbor hops across and annexes these sticks; the injured proprietor returns and at once accuses the author of the theft; observe the prompt and righteous indignation of. the latter; observe the widely opened mouth with which he eloquently repels the charge. Can nny one doubt that he is saying: "You're a dusky, wretched liar! I carried these sticks a mile, if I carried them a yard. Do you think I'd use a stick that had been in your measly nest? Not I." Nor Is the genius for lying confined to birds. Every friend of the dog knows how that animal, unless trained to express his natural tendency, will howl half the night if put to sleep in an outhouse, or even in the kitchen or other unoccupied room; and how it is apt from time to time to change its tune and set up a suspiciously brisk barking, from whicn the experienced ear will miss the true note of real rafeJ. Suppose you hurry down on such an occasion, do you ever find the animal confronting a burglar or watching a suspected point? Does it not always run up to you as soon as you open the door, and, after a hurried attempt to flatter you, rush into the house or upstairs? The deceiver was only pretending to see something to bark at. So much for the dog. The cat, however, though enjoying a high reputation as a thief, has not been generally known as a liar; yet, if Louis Robinson be correct, the cat acts the same lie as the goose, and with much greater energy and thoroughness of detail. He makes it pretty clear that the hissing and spitting of an enraged cat, as also the appearance of its head and "the quick to and from movement of its barred and sinuous tail," all originated in a deliberate attempt of its wild ancestors to pass themselves off as venomous serpents. Serpents are terrible enough now, but in earlier times they were both larger and more plentiful, and all warm-blooded animals and birds, even those that face them and kill them, have an Innate horror of them. Wild cats, as the author above referred to points out, make their homes in hollow trees or other dark retreats, where their broods are fairly safe from molestation. When a carnivorous animal discovers such a rest, and, on approaching hears an ominous hissing proceeding from it (for very young kittens can hiss and spit), he is apt to think twice before risking head or paw in such a dangerous venture. Of course, these Instances scarcely indicate any high degree of mental ob- One fre Mary.

Menstruations were very painful, I was almost a skeleton. 1 followed your advice and now am well and fleshy, and able to do all my own housework, I took medicine from a physician«for over a year, and it did not do me aparticle of good.
