In the Spring Most People Need a
Tonic Medicine
Our- of lhc surest signs that the
blood is out of oidcr i> the pimples,
Unsightly eruptions and eczema thai
come frequently with the change
from winter to spring. These prove
that the loir, indoor life of winter
has had its effect upon the blood.
and that a tonic medicine is needed
lo put ii right, Indeed there arc few
people who do not need a tonic at
this season, Bad blood does not
merely show itself in disfiguring
eruptions. To this same condition is
due attacks of rheumatism and lumbago; thc sharp stabbing pains of
sciatica and neuralgia, poor appetite
and a desire to avoid exertion. You
eannot cure these troubles by lhc
use of purgative medicines���you need
a tonic, and a Ionic only, and anion','
all medicines llit-rc is none can equal
Dr. Williams' .l'ink I'ills for their
tonic, life-giving, nerve-restoring
powers. Every dose oi lhis medicine makes new, rich blood which
drives out impurities, stimulates every organ and brings a feeling of
new health nnd energy to weak, tired
ailing men, women and children. II
you arc out of sorts give this medicine a trial and see how quickly it
will restore lhc appetite, revive
drooping spirits, aiid Iill your veins
with new, health-giving blood.
Vou can get these Tills from any
medicine dealer or by mail at 50
cents a box or si-: hoses for ��2.e0
from The Dr. Williams' Medicine
Co., Brockvillc, Out.
No Cattle Embargo
No Such Action Contemplated by U.
S. Government on Canadian
Inquiry by lhe Canadian Press based on rumors irom western Canada
that lire Untied Suites contemplates
placing restrictions on llic shipment
of cattle from Canada inlo llic United States, brought the reply from
Washington that no sueh action was
contemplated, ul least for llur present. Washington officials expressed
some curiosity as lo the origin ol
the report, and intimated lhat, so fruits lhcy knew, no embargo v.ns in
contemplation. Thc li>t 1 i-rt of articles placed under restriction, on
April 1, made no reference to livestock.
Pencils From Japan
The  Creation of a Lead  Pencil  Industry in Japan
An unthoiiglil-of result oi llu- war
lias been tin- creation of ti lead pencil industry in  |apan,
In 1911 Japan imported 65,000,000
pencils, mosl of which clinic, from
America and Germany, But u'llh lhe
opening of the European conflict
German sources of supply were cut
off and native niaiutfaolurcrs, who
had been producing only in comparatively small quantities, seized their
opportunity and made the most of it.
In 1914 Japan exported over 9,-
000,000 pencils, and in 1916 lhc number had increased lo 168,000,000.
There is strong indication that
many of the markets won by thc
Orientals will bc held by them after
the war, for tlicy hnve lhc advantage
of very cheap labor. Most of the
lead which lhcy use is imported from
India and England.
Wise and experienced niolliers
know when their children ;;rc troubled with worms and lose no time in
applying Miller's Worm Powders,
lhc most effective vermifuge that can
bc used. Il is absolute in clearing
thc system of worms and restoring
those healthy conditions without
which llicrc can bc no comfort for
lhe child, or hope of robust growth,
It is the most trustworthy of worm
Making the Pennies Reach
Thc litlle girl put six cents on thc
counter for a loaf of bread.
- "Another cent, please,"    said    the
"Has il rose, then?" asked the little girl.
"\ cs, bread went up lhis morning."
"Well, then," she replied, "give mc
one oi yesterday's." ��� Guclph Mercury.
Chronic Skin Disorders

How  to loosen  a tender com

without pain
Lct folks step on your feet hereafter; wear shoes a size smaller if

Hc says that a few drops of a
drug culled freezone, applied directly
upon a tender, aching corn, instantly
relieves soreness, and soon the entire corn, root and all, lifts right
This drug dries at once and simply
shrivels up the corn or callus without even irritating the surrounding
A small bottle of freezone obtain *d
at any drug store will cost very little

If your druggist hasn't stocked

Are Men Who Have no Fixed Point
of Truth or Honor
Words still fail to lell the daily
tale of woe which those who do
things in thc name of Germany
bring lo the world. Devilish as arc
llieir physical cruellies even more
cruel   und  terrible   seem   to  be    the
menial tortures which lhcy infilfct
upon the world. For lhcy arc men
who have no fixed point of truth or
honor, and Iheir deeds and thoughts
are an insult to the world's common guud..ess. Strangely enough
llicrc seems no voice among lhc allies able to-scorch with prophetic utterance and to shame before the
world these representatives of Germany who on the throne and in ils
parliament and press and pulpit dally
kill all that civilization has won.
These sillnckr on truth go by default. They arc accepted 111 silence.
And yet as the Eternal liveth thc

"Well;" he said by and by, "my
opinion is that Daly thinks Lawrence
is here, so to speak, within his reach,
which must bc a strong encouragement. If he learns thc truth, he'll
no doubt, go back to Canada and
get on his track. I'd like to set him
searching for Lawrence up and down
Great Britain. There would bc
something amusing in his wasting his
time and money, but at present I
don't see how it could be done. However, wc have until tomorrow to
think of a plan."
Featherstone left him soon afterwards and he stayed in thc library
until dinner, which hc found a melancholy function. It was necessary
to appear undisturbed while thc servants were about, and hc envied his
friend's fine control. These people
had courage and when they talked
carelessly about things of no importance hc did his best to play up.
Still, although tlicy sometimes laughed their amusement sounded forced,
there was a curious feeling of tension, and he thought Mrs. Ecathcr-
stonc once or twice showed signs of
When the meal was ovcr he made
an excuse for leaving them alone,
but sonic time afterwards Alice came
into the hall, where he sat quietly
Ihinking. She was calm, but he saw
she had heard about the threatened
danger. He gol up as she advanced,
but she bcckc.cd him to sit down.
"My father has told mc about thc
letter, and I understand you know,"
she said.
"I wish I knew what ought to be
done! It's an awkward matter. To
tell the truth, it bothers inc."
Alice sat down, shielding her face
from the fire with her hand.
"You mean you feel you ought lo
put it right?"
"Something of the kind," said Foster, forcin-} a smile. "In a sense, of
course, that's presumptuous; but
then, you see, in many ways, I'm in
your brother's debt."
"You like-Jo pay your debts,"
Alice remarked, fixing a level glance
on him.
"When I can; but that's not all.
I'm not iu Lawrence's debt alone,"
Foster answered with sonic diffidence. "1 came ovcr here, a stranger, ignorant of your ideas and customs, and you made me welcome.
Of course, if I had jarred you, you
wouldn't have lit mc know-; but
llicrc arc different degrees of hospitality."
Alice smiled. "You needn't labor
your excuses for wanting lo help us,
and you arc not a stranger now-. Y'oti
must have understood this when my
father showed  you  lhc letter."
"Thank you," Foster replied with
feeling, and was silent for the next
few moments. Alice, who was proud
and reserved,  trusted him, and     he
CANADIANS have good reason to be proud of the position Canada
holds in the world today. This pride is justified by the activities of
her people, by her unlimited natural resources, by her splendid institutions, and particularly by her Industries.
Facts about the immensity of
tome Canadian industries would
astonish most people.
These industries, when viewed
In the light of comparison with
other countries, arc simply, tremendous.
Thc growth of any industry is
limited to thc number of people
it can serve, and that is a fact not
often properly appreciated when
Canadian industries arc compared
to similar enterprises in, say, tlie
United States.
For example: the population
of the United States exceeds
100,000,000. Opportunity for industries there is almost unlimited.
In comparison, Canada with its
seven million population is a small
country���yet in spite of this com-'
paratively small population, Canada possesses several industries
which in actual size rank among
the biggest in the world.
In shoemaking, onc Canadian
concern has developed a volume
of business and a service to thc
Canadian  people  which  is  not
equalled by another shoe manufacturer anywhere in the world.
This concern, if located in thc
United States, would rank as onc
of the twelve largest out of sonic
two thousand shoe manufacturers
While thc sales of the largest
shoe manufacturer in thc United
States���selling to the American
people���do not exceed twenty-five
(cents per capita per year, thc sales
of Ames Holden McCready to thc
Canadian people last year wcrc
approximately eighty cents per
In a comparative sense, therefore, this Canadian concern is
greater than the foremost American shoe manufacturer in the
United States.
Thus Ames Holden McCready

title "Shoemakers to the Canadian
Just imagine for a moment the
enormous work of supplying a large
portion of Canada's 7,000,000 peo-
ole with its boots and shoes:
���if requires���huge up-to-date factories equipped with thc most
modem machinery able to turn
out 8,000 pairs of shoes a day.
���it requires���a variety of nearly*
800 different styles to meet thc
requirements of all classes of people, for different grades, shapes and
kinds of shoes.
���it requires���thc maintenance of
six large distributing branches in
principal cities from coast to coast,
and in these are carried ovcr a
million dollars worth of stock,
ready for quick delivery to retailers.
���it requires���sixty travelling salesmen to call on the retail trade,
because out of approximately
10,000 retail dealers who sell shoes
in Canada, morc than 5,000 handle
A.H.M. Shoes.
���it requires���many other details
of organization and equipment,
but this brief outline will give you
some slight idea of the part that
this great shoe concern is playing in
the business of supplying footwear
to the Canadian people..
You will be interested in these facts, because the next time you buy footwear
bearing the A.H.M. Brand, you will know that they are the product of a large and
efficient organization making shoe* which will in every case give you the greatest,
value for your money.

"Very well. I rather think your

Foster opened thc door for her,
and then went to the gun room,

arrived, pouring out sonic Rangoon

lighted a cigarette.
"I understand you were rather

"If I may say so, sir, I was. A

John looked pained at his blunt-

very good families."
"Just so," said Foster. "Would
you bc surprised to hear he hadn't
got out of thai trouble yet?"
"Not surprised exactly; I was
afraid of something like it, sir."
Foster knew this was as much as
he would admit, but felt thai he
could trust the man.
"Very well. My partner's in some
danger, and wilh Mr. Fcathcrslone's
permission I must try to scc him
through, but may want your help. 1
suppose you're willing?"
"Ves, sir. If it's for Mr. Lawrence, you  can  take  it  that   I  am."
"Vou can drive an automobile
pretty well?"
"Not like a professoinut, sir, but
now we don't keep a chauffeur I
often  drive to lhe slation."
"That's satisfactory. I may want
the car tomorrow evening, but nobody else  must  know about  this."
"Very good, sir," said John.
"When you're ready you can give mc
your Instructions; they'll go no further."
Then he dipped a rag In the oil
and began to rub a gun, and Foster
went out, feeling satisfied. It was
plain thai lie could rely upon the old
fellow, who he tfiought was unflinchingly loyal to the Feather-
stones. After all, it was something
to have thc respect and affection of
one's servant.

seqti��iit on war time needs, the telephone has been a great adjunct to the peedy termination of business It supplement,-)
persona.l effort to the last degree, in fact Its usefulness almost
speaks for itself. That it is such a great utility, facilitating
endeavor along every Hue. is due to the cooperative human
element behind the scenes which makes the valuable, inanimate equipment iutensely useful.
The aim Is to make the telephone of the greatest use aud
convenience to everv user.

Indiscriminate Policy in the Past of Encouraging Immigration of an
Undesirable Class from Europe Has Resulted in Complicated
Social and Economic Problems in the West
Canada's development after the
war affords a subject upon which
many minds have becn engaged, and
in regard to which many suggestions
havc been made. Not all of these
suggestions have been well considered. Certainly not all will pass the
test of practicability. But all those
who have given thc question serious
thought are, as thc Montreal Gazette says, in agreement as to thc
paramount importance of a sound
policy of immigration.
In the past, continues the Montreal paper, the aim has been to bring
in new citizens with morc regard to
numbers than to quality. The settlers brought across the Atlantic
havc been called the "off-scourings of
Europe." That is too harsh a term,
because the class of immigration
which it has been intended to embrace has included a great number
of sober,* industrious, thrifty and
useful settlers, who havc become
creditable citizens.    Thc policy   fol-

lowed has been, nevertheless, too indiscriminate, with the result that the
newer provinces of the west are today called upon to face social and
economic problems from which wc
ought to have been spared.
When the war began the flow of
settlers from thc continent of Kurope stopped, as did the flow of new
citizens from the British Isles. The
influx from the United States also
was halted, chiefly because of the
apprehension that Canada's position
as a belligerent might impose upon
Canadian citizens, new as well as
old, the obligation to serve in the
army. The last year has brought a
change in this respect. Compulsory
military service was instituted in thc
United Slates before it was adopted
iu Canada, and lhc two countries arc
now on all fours as to the military
obligations of their citizens. The
latest information from Ottawa indicates that many farmers from the
United States arc now moving into
these Western Provinces, where lhcy
arc taking up lands.
There will be general agreement
with the view expressed by The Gazette that this is a most satisfactory
movement, one which must result in
solid benefit to this country. Thc
Gazette adds:
"The settlers who cnlcr thc Canadian West from the United Slates,
particularly from the western grain
states, are from many points of view
the best that the Prairie Provinces
can secure. They arc better equipped for grain growing on the prairie
than arc the men who go west from
the farms of Kaslcrn Canada. They
have had experience in farming under conditions of soil and climate
closely similar lo those which prevail
in Western Canada, so that lhcy
havc fewer new things to leant and
fewer old things to unlearn than
have lhc men front the eastern farms
who have never ploughed the prairie.
Moreover it is generally true that the
settler from lhc western stales is a
man of some worldly substance, already possessed of machinery and
stock or with money to purchase
both. The American settler iu the
Canadian West is infinitely more valuable as a new citizen than is the
best of the class which has conic in
the past from .Middle and Eastern
Kurope, a class composed of men of
alien stocks, speaking their own
languages, having their own social
standards, and assimilating slowly.
Whatever may bc the. extent of
European emigration afler lhe war
it is probable that Canada will ^.avc
to look to the middle and western
stales of America for ninny if not
for the most of her new- seniors.
That outlook is far from discouraging, From every economic standpoint this immigration must bc beneficial to Canada."���Regina Leader.
Urges Increased Acreage
Fifty per cent, more land under
cultivation is the objective which
Dr. J. W. Robertson, C.M.G., of Ottawa, asks the fanners of New
Brunswick to attain litis season.
This is an average of five acres morc
per farmer, lhe amount of land und-
u* cultivation in the province being
lower than in other parts of Canada,
owing to the lack of grain growing,
nnd the large proportion of farming
land used for dairying purposes, etc.
Frugality is good, if liberality be
joined with il. The first is leaving
off stipcii'lous expenses; the last bestowing them to the benefit of others lhat need. The first without the
lust begins covetness; the last without the first begins prodigality; bolh
together make au excellent temper.
���William Pciin,
Cost of Living
Some    Tips    Published   in    Britain
Upon War-time Economy
Sufficient food for one person for a
day can bc bought for a shilling, even at present prices. A shilling a
dny, once or twice a week, need not
involve a Spartan self-denial if the
money is spent judiciously. Thc
breakfast menu may bc a large soup-
plate of oatmeal porridge, two slices
o( toast with a little margarine, and
a cup of cocoa, half milk and half
water. For luncheon a pint of packet soup, costing twopence, a pound
of potatoes, and an apple or orange.
Tin- lust meal may include a pease-
pudding, boiled in a cloth, with :t
lump of margarine added, bread and
syrup, and a pint of cocoa with a
dash of milk. Such a dietary, on occasional days, costs uo more than a
shilling, and is sufficient nourishment
for all persons engaged in light_ manual work or sedentary occupation.
A shilling spent on dried peas,
beans, rice, or maize provides material for several dishes. If any fatty
food can bc obtained, such as dripping, oil or suet, a perfectly nourishing meal can bc made with onc of
llic pulses as the chief part. It is
possible to live healthily for a considerable time upon beans and fat.
Hut a full diet of beans and peas
cannot bc recommended to persons
of weak digestion.
Maize is quite as nourishing as
wheat and wc are beginning to recognize its high food value. The belief that maize is indigestible, is quite
erroneous, It is morc digestible
than while wheat flour. Cornflour,
often given invalids, is simply a preparation of maize. All kinds of
dishes, from porridge to rissoles and
fritters, can bc prepared from miiizc-
meal or flaked maize. This is probably the most economical food that
can bc obtained at present. Maize is
cheap, extremely nourishing, and easily absorbed by the body. It is a far
more valuable food than rice. Maize
builds up body tissue and provides
warmth. Its excellence as a food
should be known to every housewife
who has to study rigid economy and
wishes to obtain the best value in
food for thc cost of a shilling.

The official curtain wliicli shrouds
the persistent work of the Britisii
admiralty in ridding the seas of thc
lurking submarine menace has been
momentarily drawn aside. Ten recent instances have been given publicity in which the undcrscas emissaries of Teuton' barbarism have
been discovered and destroyed by
alert naval aircraft. The cases arc
recorded in the official language of
the. admiraliy reports.
Thc world "do move." It is significant that the modern menace of
U-boat fiiglltflthicss should find its
sharpest clic-rkinalu in thc modern
achievement of lhc (lying machine.
The seaplanes patrolling the narrow
waters around the coasts of Britain
and France arc the "eyes" which
keep the undcrscas marauder under
surveillance and arc ils constant terror. The sliced at wllictf' the "birds"
travel and llieir ability to dip at will
to the water's edge and cast forth
llieir deadly bombs enable them to
do splendid service iu exterminating
the lliin submarine. Even iu the
moment of llis seeming triumph thc
barbarian is liable to destruction
from tho air. One of the ten cases
enumerated by thu admiralty in its
matter-of-fact and uiienibcllishcd record reads as follows:
"A seaplane saw lhc track of a
torpedo wliicli had been fired at a
merchantman. It dived toward the
surface and sighted thc black shadow of the submarine well below the
surface. It dropped two bombs,
which both exploded close to the
submarine, resulting iu a large quantity of oii, bubbles and wreckage."
The glimpse that the admiralty has
given the public of thc efficient servicc being rendered by aircraft in
the steady destruction of German
submarines is most encouraging. It
illustrates how thc allies are persistently overtaking and removing the
U-boat menace, and it emphasizes
the tremendous value of the air service which is not only indispensable
to thc army in land operations, but
has become, in a very real and effective sense, the "eyes" of thc Britisii
navy.���Toronto Globe.

What the   Boys   Have   Done   and

Previous experience has shown
that there are few of the phases of
farm, work llic older hoys cannot
accomplish. Their main worth, perhaps, lies iii the fact that by attending to the chores, looking after feeding and milking of cows, weeding
and such other lighter hut necessary
farm work, llicy release the regular
farm labor for thc more strenuous
farm tasks. Reports of work done
last year show that lhc Soldiers of
the Soil looked alter the hoeing, harrowing, lighter seeding, weeding,
raking, mowing, planting, churning,
and delivery of cream and mil!*, general farm chares, feeding of all live
stock, and the letters received from
fanners who had these older boys
assisting llicni lold not only of the
good work done but also of the desire of these same farmers ti have
the. hoys help another year.

boys on the farm, according to authority, should bc equal to at least

He Suffered From Cramps in the
Muscles and Headaches, But Now
He Is Well Again.
Lac Bouchette, Lac St. Jean Co.,
Que. (Special).���"I cau assure you
Dodd's Kidney Pills made me well."
So says M. Joseph Larouche, well
known and highly respected here.
For two years he was a sufferer from
cramps in the muscles and headaches. He w-as treated by a doctor,
but got no permanent relief till he
used Dodd's Kidney Pills.
"Vou may publish my statement
lhat Dodd's Kidney Pills made me
well," says Mr. Larouche in an interview. "I was ill two years. I had
cramps in my muscles, and suffered
from terrible headaches. Two boxes
of Dodd's Kidney Pills cured me."
That Mr. Larouchc's troubles came
from his kidneys is evidenced by the
fact that hc found a cure in Dodd's
Kidney Pills. They are simply and
purely a kid. cy remedy. The reason
they arc credited with cures of rheumatism, lumbago, dropsy, backache,
diabetes and heart disease is that all
of these were either kidney diseases
or diseases caused by sick kidneys.

Sunday is mainly a day of digging,

It Is a Liver Pill.���Many of the
ailments that man has to contend
with have their origin in a disordered liver, which is a delicate organ,
peculiarly susceptible to the disturbances that conic from irregular habits or lack of care in eating and

German   Plot   to   Murder    French
The Tangier correspondent of the

plot for ousting French and Spaniards from Morocco. It was proposed to Raisuli and other Moorish

and bc followed by a declaration of
lhc independence of Morocco and
nomination of a pro-German sultan.

Canada's Registration
Its Purpose and Application
CANADA faces the gravest crisis in her history. Four years of war have taken from
the Dominion a heavy toll in talent and labor, yet despite the shortage of man
power, our Allies still depend on Canada to maintain her own fighting forces at full
strength and to increase her exports of food and war materials, so vital to them, and to
the successful prosecution of the war. _
Every ounce by which Canada can increase her food production and every ounce Canada
can save in her food consumption is needed for export to the Allies. ^
Should the war continue for another year, food cards and a rationing system may have to
be instituted. It is the duty of Canada to be prepared for whatever situation circumstances
may force upon her.
It is quite probable that before the war is won Our Government may have to place
restrictions upon the occupations in which men and women may engace. In such an
event the Government wishes to be in a position to render all possible assistance in
keeping our population usefully and profitably employed.
Registration Day, June 22nd
These condition* point to the necessity oi Canada
knowing (he exaCt capabilities ol her men and
women at home.
All persons residing in Canada, male or lemnle,
llritish or alien ol 16 years and over, will be required
to register on June 22nd and truthfully answer the
questions set forth upon the registration card.
it is not the Government's intention to conscript
labour in any (orm, bul to assist in directing it wisely,
���o that every available unit oi human energy may be
utilized to the best advantage.
The information procured through registration will
be used���as an aid to the Military Authorities in procuring the men necessary to maintain "Canada's
First Line ol Defence"���to mobilize all units of available labor in Ihe Dominion and direct them from less
essential to more essential occupations���to establish
and intelliftcr 'y administer a system of food rationing
shtfuld that L-jcome necessary.
