"Shall we Forgive Her*" is Uie
title of** the new World-Picture
Brady Mada which will be shown
at the Maple Leaf Theatre ou Sa.
tii relay with June Elvidge and Arthur Ashley as the stars. The
drama is a film version of tbe famous stage play which was such a
tremedous success in New Yonc

terrible experience cf a confiding
young girl who trusted to the good
faith of a young scoundrel who
played her false. Because sue loved him she left her hi me tnd went

scheme forced lief to stay with him
Later she saved the life of a prospector* who had/struck'tit rich in
tiie gold fields ami 111 return he
promised her that whenever she
needed a friend .she had but to call
on him. Still later when the girl
had escaped from the man who had
betrayed her she went east, a_d
there met a decent young chap who'
married her. Hut Mie did not tell
him of tlu: secret e*S the past. Then
when it seemed as though she wai
going to lose. her happiness when
her husband discovered what had
occurred out West, the miner who
she had befriended came to her aid
in a most remarkable manner.
Needless to say, this production is
replete with trills nnd exciting Incident-, It has been staged on au
elaborate scale and the outdoor

The Raw Recruit
And How He Was Given   a   Little
Advice by a Mere Gcner.il
A story is being lolil about :i li'
tic Incident which happened ni Camp
Custer lately, General l*cmi was
passing directly in fronl of a recruil
whose education had nol sn far progressed that lip considered it a
breach of military regulations to sit
unconcernedly on au empty box and
pull :it a cigarette while an officer
was passing by. It is a well-known
fact that thc General is n "real man,"
and ;is usual he did not "bawl out"
Ihc recruit. The General went a few
paces ahead and then returned to
where the recruit wns silling and In
a tone of friendly interest inquired:
"My hoy, do you know you arc supposed to stand nt attention and salute officers who pass by?"
Tho boy replied that hc did, but
hadn't noticed any officers,
"Weill" said General I'enn, "1 am
nothing but a mere general, my boy,
but onc of these days some second
lieutenant is going to conic along
here and reprimand you severely for
your lack of observation."���Vancouver Province.

A Modern Solomon
A very canny person, President
Kruger, was once called upon, as
King Solomon before liim, to pass
judgment in a matter of ownership.
The case was that of two brothers,
,-. lio had be.e.i lefl a farm and could
not agree as to thc division which
hnd lo bc made. Tlicy agreed lhat,
rather than taUc the matter to thc
courts, tlicy would let President
Kruger dceidc. President Kruger
appears to have hesitated about as
litlle as King Solomon did. lie instructed the elder brother to make
v.-hai lie considered a fair division,
and then lie gave first choice lo the
younger brother, A solution like
Solomon's, both masterly and simple.

Oats and Oatmeal
The following trade advantages of
lhc use of lolled oals and oatmeal in
mixed breads are pointed out by a
large concern.
"First, rolled oals and oatmeal arc
more easily obtained than their substitute ingredients; second, rolled
oats or oatmeal will absorb far more
water than wheat flour and retain it
longer; third, they arc as cheap as
any oilier ingredient, which is available; fourthly, the oatmeal loaf i.;
said lo havc a greater nutritive value
than even a straight wheat flour, and
far greater than a eoriinicl or barley
flour mixture."

The surest and speediest way to
combat them is with Parmelee's Vegetable Pills, which will restore the

bring relief. They have proved their
usefulness in thousands of cases and
will continue to give relief to the
suffering who arc wise enough to
use them.
No Use Hugging Illusions
The need for more men in the
army is primarily due to the paralysis of Kussia. Many optimists
though t that the obliteration of Russia as a military factor would ' be
compensated for by the accession of
America. So it will. But America
will not be able to strike with power in the field for some time _to
come; and meanwhile it is thc British and French armies that will have
lo sustain the brunt of fighting, it
is imperative that the British divisions should be brought tip lo
trength and that wc should havc
adequate reserves in training. It is
no use bugging illusions. Wc are
up against a powerful antagonist,
who, thanks to the chaos in Russia,
has, in boxing parlance, got "his second wind."���London Daily Chronicle.

Alberta's Wheat Acreage
It is estimated that Alberta will
have at least an average of fifteen to
twenty per cent, increase in acreage
available for seeding this spring over
that of last year. In view of the
large amount of summerfallow done
in favorable conditions in the past
season, at leas' twenty per cent,
more grain should be produced in
Alberta this year than in 1917. Good
authorities consider lhat this estimate is a very conservative one.

| The Importance of Pure Seed
| Government Pamphlet Will   Be   ol
Great Value to Farmers
Turc seed is an important factor
in greater production. It might almost be said that it is the most important, for weedy seed having once
been sown, it is impossible to foretell the damage that may bc done to
the growing crop, or the disappointment that may ensue when gathering
or reaping times comes round. Hence
al lhis season of thc year, when sowing is iu prospect, a pamphlet issued
by the seed Branch of the department of agriculture at Ottawa, entitled "Cleaning Seed" is most timely
and valuable. It tells of the implements that are needed and Ihc
methods that should be followed, especially in Ihe cleaning of grain and
grass seed. A letter to the. Publications Branch, Ottawa, will bring thc
pamphlet promptly and without cost.

the Imokeaso."���Mrs. S. Thompson, Smith street, Kingston, Ont.
IT may bo safely said, without fear
of contradiction, that there is no
more useful book to be found in
any home than Dr. Chase's Receipt
Book. Tho proof of this statement
rests in the fact that several millions
of copies have been sold, and it is
sometimes saitl that the circulation is
second only to that of the Bible.
From the time^e began the study
of medicine it was a hobby of tho
doctor to collect all recipes and prescriptions of exceptional value. There
is so much of the doctor's own experience and history woven into these
recipes that you cannot use nis book
without feeling that you know him
personally and appreciate his sterling
The Receipt Book was soon
widely circulated, and aroused
so much favorable opinion
towards thc doctor that he
found the demand for his
medicines far greater than he
could supply.  This led to tho

decision to select a few of his most
successful prescriptions and place
them on the market for general sale.
This action met with some criticism from the medical profession,
but Dr. Chase's motto was "the
greatest good to the greatest number," and one cannot estimate the
r-uffering alleviated and the lives
saved by this generous action on the
part of the doctor.
The use of Dr. Chase's medicines
has become so general that there aro
few, indeed, who do not know something of their sterling merits. So
enormous have the sales become that
imitations have been put on the
market and substitutes are offered
by unscrupulous persons who seek
to steal the reputation of their
But the doctor has protected you by having his portrait

in connection with agricultural development, In liar lirst instance, the
response to thc teachings of colleges
of agriculture and experimental
farms was too slow to effect au immediate .ind noteworthy improvement in the. conditions surrounding
larm life, The second weakness was
found in the fact that little or no
attempt was being made to adapt the
country's educational system lo the
specific requirements of country
boys ami girls, Tiie form of instruction was the same whether the child
was destined for employment in the
country or in the town.
The placing of funds at the disposal of tin; provinces in the maimer
indicate.! lias !--d to a much wider
extension of i-.istruetion.il work
among the men and women and boys
r-.r.-.'d girls who arc living on the laud.
A marked development of ihe short
course idea has resulted in the extension of courses in agricultural
topics and in household science
throughout thc country. These
courses are designed nol nnly for
farmers and their wives but lor the
young men and women who have left
school and arc about to actively cuter upon the affairs of liie. Itl the
sc'uools themselves an attempt i.s being made to develop a system of instruction which will utilize ihe objects associated with rural life *s a
medium through which to cdtir,;;.-
the child. In the higher departments of education, the efficiency of
the provincial colleges of agriculture has been promoted, and, in several provinces, at least, schools of an
intermediate grade, a.s between the
public school and iiie agricullttr.il
college, havc been established, The
object of these special schools is to
provide vocational training in agri-
culture and household science. As
time goes on and their usefulness is
demonstrated, it is certain that, owing to thc financial assistance given
by the act, their influence will be
greatly extended. How wide a field
is being covered by agricultural instruction work is indicated in a
pamphlet just issued by the Dominion Commissioner of Agricultural Instruction, Mr. W. J. Black. It is entitled "Agricultural Instruction in
Canada," and a copy may be had on
application to thc Publication
Branch of thc Department of Agriculture at Ottawa.
The    Navy    Is    Helpless    Without
Army's Aid
Archibald Herd, the naval critic of
the Daily Telegraph, of London,
does not look for any immediate and
remarkable change in allied naval
straiegy as a consequence of lhc
recent changes in the Britisii admiralty, and in n recent article the Telegraph he develops his reasons therefor as follows:
"1 have heard il remarked lhat
Admiral Jellicoe did not give the
counlry much of a show. That criticism points io complete ignorance
of the character of naval power and
its limitations. 1 do not anticipate
that the new first sea lord will give
the nation a belter show than his
predecessor, for the simple reason
that no man, however keen his lighting edge and however anxious to defeat the enemy, dare ignore the permanent factors governing war by
sea, of the fleet's responsibility to
the army, with its long and exposed
lines ol communication,
"Ships eannot    fight    forts.     The.
ion  German coast line is  studded
iiii  forts, as  the   Belgian  coast  is
so defended. It is the universal ex-
. irience al sea that in such conditions the stronger fleet can do litlle
or nothing without the co-operation
of military force, 11 is a common
error to speak of thc navy a.s one
ruin and llur army as another] thc
army is ihe extension of the sea
power of a maritime country, and its
co-operation is essential ashore if the
navy i.s to fulfill its mission afloat���
in other words, compel the enemy to
"The admirals who Hew their Hags
during the last great war had to
maintain their blockade in patience
during weary in.ml lis, because the
country did not possess the military
power which could have driven the
enemy ships to sea or circumstances
did not favor such a course.
"Today wc possess an army which,
including Indian and Dominion
Iroops, exceeds 6,000,000 men. But
that army has never been employed
as the extension of our sea power in
the sense illustrated, for instance, by
Gen. Sir George Aston, R.M.A., in
Ins studies on amphibious war.
"Our military strategy may havc
been influenced by events beyond our
control, bur. it remains a fact that wc
have never possessed what Mr.
Lloyd George in his last speech des-
cribed as an army oi manoeuvre���au
army to be used as the projectile of
the licet, and discharged at the weakest point on the enemy's front by
surprise. The Japanese, in their two
wars, were more fortunate, as -aere
the Americans. It was thc Japanese
army which forced the Chinese lleet
out of Port Arthur and Wci-hai-wci;
the American army compelled thc
Spanish fleet to leave Santiago, to
accept overwhelming defeat by sea;
the Russo-Japanese war is of such
recent date thai it is hardly necessary to recall that Japanese troops,
and not Japanese seamen, captured
Port Arthur, evicting the Russian
"The sea controls the land, as our
experience is showing, but the limitations of naval power exist, and apply not only to the German bases,
but to tlie Belgian coast."   ���
Vacant Lot Production
Canada Food Board Urges Al! Possible Garden Cultivation
at Home
The Canada food board has entered upon an active propaganda to
increase thc cultivation of vacant
lots and home gardens:. Thc board
makes ail urgent appeal to every horticulturist and retired farmer in thc
Dominion to place their knowledge
at tlie disposal oi the various local
cultivation organizers. There is very
great necessity of increased production in every direr tion and the board
is anxious that the earliest possible
start bc made this spring. Vacant
lot and garden production is second
only in importance to iarni cultivation. The growing of food for home
consumption eliminates transportation waste with attending cost of
labor and fuel. I'he boanl hopes
that no one capable of intelligently
assisting in this important work wiil
withhold such ..s-'Stancc at this critical -tage.

The American Sector
American    Troops     Prepared    and
Confident When Big Clash
They arc trained and seasoned
men for the most part, these regiments which on January 19 took over thc Lorraine sector, not for instruction any longer, but as a permanent first-line force. Their mastery of the tcchnic of bayonet and
-grenade has 'won repeated praise
from      French      teachers. With
France's own gun, the 75, tlicy arc
reported to have surpassed French
artillery standards for speed and efficiency of fire.
With theni, too, however, arc
rookies from the replacement drafts,
sometimes as many as 600 to a regiment, including not only men of the
national guard, but men from civilian
life only last fall. They arc scattered among thc "veterans" of their
own army in the trenches in order
that they may learn war's lessons
more quickly than in the camps; and
ilrcady they have proved their metal.
The Lorraine line is no -sinecure,
no holiday place. Every day sees
small engagements o( patrols, raiding parties, artillery duels, as Germans and Americans feel each other
out. This is the hour of expentaney.
French and Britisii commanders
alike are tensely waiting for th
German blow to fall. When it docs
fall, the American sector will feel its
l-art���and will be ready.���From the

On Feb. IS last, Mr, A. J. Claguc,
of Toronlo, bought some eggs from
a Toronto grocer at 60 ctnts a dozen. They were marked "T. J. Ur-

to the history of the. eggs, Mr.
Claguc wrote to Mr. Urton for information. In reply be was told that
the eggs were sold by Mr, Urton 14
months ago at 20 cents a dozen.

How India Helps
India's Interest in War Has Grown
of Late
A despatch from Delhi says that
in the past few months India's keen
interest in the war has been growing
remarkably. All her strength has
been brought in to assist the empire and the allies. Slight inconveniences of war are being cheerfully
counteracted by the women of India, who are ever, playing a more
useful part in all war work. The
latest recruiting figures make a remarkable showing and thc enthusiasm of the fighting classes and the
g. nerous flow of war contributions
from Indian princes and rajahs continue unabated. The latest gifts include the offer of Rao Ctitch to continue until the end of the war an annual payment of ��36,000 for expenses of an Indian infantry regiment
and Gaekwar Baroda's gift of

It is claimed that the finest strop
for a razor is the fleshy part of one's

thc thumb and first finger of the

blade at tlie same time on the fleshy
part of the left hand. If yon will do
it slowly at first thc motion becomes automatic. A little vaseline
on the cutting edge is said to keep

"But perhaps lhat isn't remarkable.
Vou arc English and wcrc, I dare
say, brought up in lire counlry and

Foster saw Alice glance at him
and  felt  hc  must  be  frank.
"No," he said, "my life in Kngland was different from yours. h
was spent in monotonous work, and
when I went home al night lo a
shabby room in a si net of small,
dingy houses, il was too late, and 1
was often too dejected, to think of
amusements. Twice I spent a glorious ten days among the hills, but
that was ail 1 saw of Kngland unspoiled by tramway lines and smoke,
rind lhe holidays cost a good deal ol
self-denial. Railway fares were a
serious obstacle,''
Alice smiled, Inn he thought the
look she gave him liinl.d at approval.
"Self-denial isn't so unusual as you
seem to think," slu   said.    "Wo know
something about it at ihc Garth,"
"Hut you sent my partner money
when hc needed it," Foster answered
wondering how far he could go.
"Tiie last time il was a large amount
and helped us lo luni an awkward

gone tinder for a time if il hadn't
come, and I remember feeling that I
owed much to friends 1 might never

with your brother. In its Western
sense, partner mean-; more than a.
business associate."
"That is obvious," Alice, rejoined
quietly, but with meaning.
"The main thing is that the money
seems to have been well spent,"
Featherstone interposed. "For llll
that, wc don't know much about
what Lawrence did with it, or, indeed, about his life in Canada."
"It's curious that one gets out of
the way of writing home in the
West, and it's often difficult to give
one's friends a clear idea of how one
lives.    Things are different "
Mrs. Featherstone smiled, and
Foster paw that his wish to make
excuses for his comrade's negligence
was understood. Featherstone, however, was  franker than  he expected.

to pieces and they slept, for thc most
part, in the wet rags llicy wore by
day. But they held out until the
work was done and paid for. Fos . r
tried to do his comrade justice and
thought hc had not exaggerated, for
Lawrence's philosophic good humor
had encouraged the rest and smooth
ed over difficulties that threatened
to break up the gang.
Then he stopped and glanced at
the others, wondering whether In-
had said too much or bad drawn a
picture lhcy shrank from contemplating. Mice's eyes wcrc steadily
fixed ou liim. Mrs. Featherstone
looked grave, but there was a hint
of proud satisfaction in her husband's face. Somewhat to his surprise Foster saw that he had not
jarred or bored them.
"Yotl made good; I believe that's
the proper phrase," said Featherstone,   "Co on, please."
Foster did so. His adventures liii'l
not appeared remarkable when they
happened, and he did not think himself much of a story teller, but lie
meant to do bis best, for his partner's sake. It would be something
if he could show Lawrence's people Uu- courage and cheerfulness
with which he had faced his troubles. Stilt, hc thought it better to
vary the theme, and related how
they engaged themselves as salesmen at a department store, where
Lawrence rashly undertook to serve
llic drugs and prescribed for confiding customers until a mistake lhat
might have bad disastrous consequences led in his being fired. Foster went with him, and they next
undertook to cook, without any useful knowledge of the art, for a railroad construction gang. Their incompetence became obvious when
Lawrence attempted to save labor
by putting a week's supply of desi-
cated apples to soak al once, with
the consequence that the floor of the
caboose was covered with swollen
fruit that had forced itself out of the
pot. One of the gang, who went in
to steal some fried pork, declared
that tbe blamed apples chased him
down the steps.
Feathcrstonc's chuckle was encouraging, but Foster glanced at
Alice and thought he read another
emotion than amusement in her
sparkling eyes. It was now nearly
dark, but the glow of the fire touched the faces of his audience and nobody seem to think of ringing for

He went on to describe their retreat in winter from a worthless mineral claim, where they had remained
until the snow surprised them when
their food was nearly done Eight
or nine miles a day was the most
they could drag Iheir hand sledge
through thc tangled bush, and Foster got his foot frozen through
sleeping in wet boots. The frozen
part galled inlo a wound, but with
provisions running out tlicy could
not slop to rest. The tent and half
llieir blankets had to bc thrown
away and Lawrence hauled liim ou
ihc sledge ovcr rocks and fallen
logs, with the temperature at forty
degrees below, until they reached a
frozen river, down which he struggled against a savage wind.

Such Sufferers Can Bc Restored by
Building Up the Blood
Nervous people who have not yet
developed a disease that can be recognized .".nd treated by the medical
profession have thc greatest trouble
iu finding relief. Irritation, headaches, sleeplessness, nervous dyspepsia, all these discomforts make life
miserable, but arc endured rather
than run a doctor's bill without definite hope of an improved condition.
Every Btiffcrcr should know the
danger of such a condition to the
nervous system. Nervous debility
and even paralysis may result if the
tone of the nerves is not restored.
Thc one big fact that brings hope
and relief is that the nerves can ue
restored by building up thc blood.
It cannot be loo often repeated that
only through the blood can nourishment or medicine reach the nerves.
Dr. Williams' l'ink I'ills make the
blood rich and red and quickly restore vitality and energy to a weak,
nervous system. A nervous person
who gives these pills a trial is almost certain to see good results, and
what is more, the benefit will be
lasting because the trouble is attacked at its root; building up the
blood restores the nerve force. That
is why people who occasionally take
Dr. Williams' l'ink Pills always feel
bright, active and strong. Mrs.
Wm, Mclntyre, Gananoqtic, Ont,
says:���"For a number of years I
was always tired and listless. The
least noise would so startle mc that
I would tremble and shake; my heart
would flutter, and I would feel as
though I wcrc choking. I was almost wholly unfitted for housework,
and always so nervous that life was
almost a burden. I tried several
medicines, but tlicy did not help mc
in the least. One day I received a
pamphlet describing Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills and decided to give them
a trial. I am glad now that I did for
after using eight boxes they have so
strengthened and built up my rundown, nervous system that I can
work with pleasure and feel refreshed after a night's sleep. I sincerely"
hope some similar sufferer may benefit by my experience."
If you arc weak, nervous or feeling "out of sorts," give Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills a trial, and you will bc
surprised lo see how quickly thc
nervousness will pass away and your
former energy return. You can get
these pills through your medicine
dealer, or by mail at 50 cents a box
or six boxes for $2.50 from The Dr.
Williams' Medicine Co., Brockvllle,

Ky virtue of the value of the service performed among the Expeditionary forces of Britain. Canada

the Voting Men's Christian Association has earned for itself the

Early Morning Blaze
At about a quarter to 5 o'clock
I on Tuesday morning the residents
of Courtenay   were roused   from
their slumbers by the  ringing of
the church bell and the cy of fire!
Wm.   Aitken's   bikery  and  Miss
Smith's   millinery    parlors    were
found to be ablaze and in less than
' an hour were reduced to a mass of
glowing   embers.   The   fire   was
first discovered by Mr Aitken who
smelled the smoke and got up to
investigate.   He   found the bake
shop in flames,   and aroused hi-
brother, then rushed over  to give
the alarm. Nothing could be rescued from the bake shop or from
tbe rooms occupied by the Aitken
boys, who only   got   out in   the
clothes they grabbed. Alex Aitken's clothing aud furniture was
also lost.   The door of Miss Smith's
millinery store was forced aud the
j show case and a large mirror and a
j few articles were sayed.    How the
fire started by is   a   mystery,  as

Ottawa, April 22;���In the House
of Commons this afternoon Mr, H.
S. Clements' proposed resolution
respecting alien labor was taken
up. This resolution provides that
all regulations and .orders-in-coun-
cil respecting alien labor in Canada
shall be consolidated into one uniform law, bnt that in forming sneh
legislation due regard should be
had to the local conditions and
needs of the different parts of the
Speaking in support of his resolution, Mr. Clements advocated
the taking of a census of all the
aliens in the couutry, together with
their property holdings. He said
that such a census would not only
show this element in the country
that the government meant business but it would also be useful in
connection with immigration after
the war.
Speaking more particularly of
labor conditions in British Colum-
bio Mr. Clements saitl they were
largely due to .the work of agitators "who are as pro-German us
the Kaiser." These men, he said,
were making trouble in the lumber
camps by making demanns which
employers could not accede to,
thereby causing operations to close
down. It bad been absolutely
proven that some of these men [are
