recent caastrophe in the Illinois
coal mine are cases in point.
Such negligence is due to various
causes. In some cases it is ' due
to the lack of proper safeguards
because men in their lust for
wealth will not stand the cost.
In other cases it is due to. callous
disregard for the sanctity of,
life. In the Cherry mine dis
aster it was probably owing to
that disregard for rules which
familiarity with danger often
breeds. But whatever the
cause the outcome is widespread

A good authority has recently
said that working wqmen .are
'more virtuous than those who
live in a so-called higher sphere.
There is no doubt of it, for work
promotes virtue and many other
qualities while idleness . gets
people into all kinds of mischief.
John D. Rockefeller excuses
himself from commenting on the
recent decision of the . United
States Circuit Court dissolving
the Standard Oil Trust, on the
ground that he is "no . longer
actively connected with the
management- of the Oil Com
pany." He seems, however, to
be very actively connected with

those causes. Sometimes the

sometimes with a careless work

The Value of Imagination as an Indus
: lt us assume that tomorrow you
decide to embark in the business of
manufacturing a toilet soap to com
pete with some of the well known mak
ers. It is important that it should,
have a significant or attractive name. .
But, right at the outset, you discover
that It is almost impossible to secure '
any satisfactory .name for a new soap.
Its color, transparency and clearness
suggest the title, of , "amber soap."
Yes, surely, "amber soap" does have an ,
attractive sound. But you cannot use
the word "amber," for you find that
this is one of a list of twenty-four pos
sible names for a : toilet soap pre
empted by .registration as a protec
tionary measure years ago by one. of
the leading American soap makers..
They have covered oyer a hundred !
names in the past quarter of a century, '
willingly paying tne registration!
charges of $25 for every title. Of :
course they do not intend to use them, i
They "register them to fight off compe-
tition,- believing (and here is the im-1
portant point) that no clever business '
man would embark in the enterprise
of manufacturing a new soap when
from the start he was prevented from
employing the powerful weapon o
imagination . in giving it a suitable ,
name. " If an. establishment like this, I
nirected by some of the ablest heads in
the business - world, : believes that il
can discourage competition bj, simply
depriving the would be competitor of
the appeal to the imagination in the
naming of his soap, how great a value,
must .we attach to imagination in bust .
ness? Lorin F. Deland in Atlantic.

The Australian Method of Dealing With
"' ' the Pests. 1 -
Babbits are' the greatest pest the
Australian pastoralist has to contend
against. If these rodents are at all
numerous on a, station property, they
do enormous damage to the grass, but
the pest is kept down to the lowest
possible limit in every district of the
commonwealth at .great cost.
The most effective method of deal
ing with them is hereunder explained.
In sumjmer when any water that
might have been lying about has been,
dried up by evaporation and the grass
has become dry rabbits swarm toward
the tanks, dams or other water holes
that have, been sunk for stock drink-'
Pastoralists -take .advantage of this,'
and every evening after the cattle
have partaken of their -last- drink, a
strip of wire netting is run around 'the
tankior dam, ! :.. ' ' v,
Outside this: netting fence holes are
du? in the ground and filled with poi
soned' water, and thse in turn are in
closed By--nother strand: "of netting,
pegged: down. to' within a', few inches
of the ground, being sheep' -proof, but
allowing plenty of room for rabbits to
get under. -
: The rabbits' make for the dam; but,
as their way is barred, they drink at
the poisoned holes, with to them disas
trous results.-. .'
In the morning are to be seen hun
dreds and thousands of dead rabbits '
scattered . about - the country. Mel

? Buffoonery In "Hamlet."
The buffoonery once. tolerated in pro- i
vlncial theaters U illustrated in an an
ecdote set forth in the memoirs of Bar
ry Sullivan.'. Wright who was the first
gravedigger, prepared himself to take
the house by storm by having incased
his person within a dozen or more
waistcoats of all sorts of shapes and
patterns. When about to commence
the operation of digging the grave for
the fan Ophelia Wright began to un
wind by taking off waistcoat after
waistcoat, ' which caused uproarious
laughter among the audience. But as
fast as he relieved himself of one
waistcoat Paul Bedford, the second
gravedigger, ';. incased himself in the
castoff vests, which increased the sal
vos of laughter, for; as Wright was
getting thinner Paul grew fatter and
fatter. Wright, seeing himself out
done, kept ,on the remainder of the
waistcoats and went on with his part
quite crestfallen. , - ,. ,
