The year 1M17 went on record as one
of the most disastrous In the recent
annul of British Industry. Thl fact
I due chlelly to the lockout of the en
gineer and the accompanying disturb
ance of other blanches of Industry.
There were not as many strikes ami
lockout as In the preceding year, but
the uumlier of men concerned was fur
greater nnd the net result upon trade
fur more disastrous. There were In all
alHiut MO disputes, affecting i 'e than
iimi,KN work n, As nearly as can
now be reckoned, some Kl.tMsi.tsKl days'
lulsir was lost. That means over XI.ikn)
years of Individual Idleness, or a year
IdlfiicK of more than IUI.imni men. 'A
the majority of these men are skilled
mechanics, receiving from 5 to tl shil
lings a day when at work, the total loss
to them In wage was probably little
short of f IJ.ihhi.ihk). To this we must
add nt least $:I,ikki.imki more, paid out
by the Amalgamated Society of (Engi
neer and other trades unions for sup
Mirt of men on strike or locked out. A

bad enough If It were nil.. Hut It Is not.
The engineering trouble caused a con
siderable cutting down of railway
freight trallle. The shipbuilding Indus
try was almost paralyzed. Shopkwp
ers and tradesmen of all kinds In the
affected districts found their businesses
greatly Injured. And ns for foreign
trade, the olllclal reports tell the story
of Its disaster. In the one mouth of
November, according to Hoard of Trade
reports, shipments of machinery show
ed a fulling off of more thuu f l.tHSi.tsui
from the same month In the preceding
year. At tho same time there was a
great expansion of trade on the part of
(Ireut Hritulu' chief rival, Gcrmuny,
the Increase In German exports of ma
chinery amounting lu the tlrst nine
month of the year to 'J,:i7."l,tssi. The
simple explanation Is that Itrltlsh man
ufacturers were unable to till orders,
and so the orders went to Germany.
And It may he added, as Itrltlsh trades
men have found, that business once lost
to Germany I never regained. The
most comivetent nutliorltlcs estimate
the direct loss to llrlllsh Industry and
trade, to worklngmeii and employers
together, of the lulxir troubles of 1S17,
at not less than (7.i,iski,issi. That doc

MISS FAITH'S ADVICE.
Mis faith sat lu close eompniilon-
shln. a usual, with her familiar spirit,
a piece of criM.-ln.-twl edging. Her touch
upon the maze or tuugicii ttireau was
verv gentle, even endearing, and her
look of content as she held It up and
noted Its effect a a whole aeemed vast
ly out of prosirtlou to the cause. Mis
faith was still pretty, with tlie pa
thetic beauty In-Ill as tlotsum from the
wreck of years. Her hair was prettier
u silver thiitl It had ever been ns
brjwn. and her eyes, though they had
lost their vivid glow nnd eagerness,
hail gained a kindly sympathy. Her
tenderness hail even extended to the
rroclicllug lu her hand and Imparted

A chnnge In the crochet putteru wa

as the time of the famous harper who
played upon only one string. To an

may be u great event. It I not hard to
understand how a life that consists In
taking lullnlte pains with many little
things may get Its sip of excitement,
lu'crest and novelty from a change In
a putteru of crochet. The examination
of the work iippiiired to be satisfac
tory, ami faith laid It on the table at
her side. This table was devoted to
the uses ,f her art, nor was ever pro
iiincd by the presence of any Irrevelunt
substance. There were rows of spools
upon It, dru w ii up lu line like soldier
ready to receive an at tuck, hooks of
various sizes lying like weaixiiui by

flushed product of their warfare, faith

recovered It, and fell to musing, her
ellmw resting on the table, her cheek

now that a certain few years of her life
hud ever really happened. They must
have belonged to some other ami wan
dered wilfully Into her own, for there
wii. no home for them In Ihts or like
ness unto anything they brought. Wus
It so? They had gone so utterly, so
completely, and she was happy now
In her own harmless way, far Inland,
out of till reach of storm ami reef. She
was still looking vaguely, half wistful

and some one hud entered the room und
wus hurrying to her side.
"Aunt faith." said a girlish, tremu

"Yes," said faith, slowly.
Then It came buck to her, all her own
little story. anM a dim, broken memory
of the llrsi heartache and her own long

"Poor little girl." whispered faith,
stroking the beautiful tnavs of golden
hair. "How was It 1 learned to forget?
Let me think. Yes, remember now.

soon returned, bringing three rolls of
very broad crocheted lace.
"Can you crochet, Grace?"
"Not very much," said Grace, won-

Snowbank mill Their KtTccts.
An eastern exposure Is mil best for
either a raspberry or blackberry plan
tut Ion or for a young nursery. Most of
our heavy snowstorms come with west
erly winds, and the piles of snow that
will full on young trees and shrubs will
Inevitably bring them to the ground,
and nearly always breaking the
branches from the trunk of the tree a
It goes down. Hut this same eastern
exposure, as It protects the surface soil
from blowing winds, will in an orchard
make the snow lie evenly over the sur
face, the water sinking down Into the
subsoil as the snow melts. Thus the
same conditions which are unfavorable
for nursery tree nre best for full
growu orchards, which when they be
glu to bear, require large quantities of
moisture to perfect their crops.

Most people huve u general Idea thnt
it Is wise to tnke cure of the teeth, nnd
accordingly do so, us they suppose.
They rub it brush hurriedly two or
three times over the front of the teeth
liefore going to Imh:, or on gettlii-,' up In
the morulng, and think they have clean
ed their teeth.
The Importance of sound und ser
viceable teeth ns an aid to health can
not be overestimated, for upon their
good condition depends the thorough
mastication of the food, which Is the
first, and not the least, requisite of gisiil
digestion. Many u i-orson doses him

digestion, whcii the real cause of his
dyspepsia may be found lu the poor
state of his teeth.
The propel time to brush the teeth Is
after each meal and nl bedtime. He
fore this is done all particles of food
should be removed from between the
teeth by means of a toothpick, or. b"t
ter. dental floss. Then they should be
brushed thoroughly with n brush of
medium stiffness dipped lu tepid water.
