It is the acme of cleanliness
Practically no heat escapes into the room
The air is not vitiated
There is no contamination of food
You save food values through the retention of the

of tlio bladder, rxafding uriuc, and

Up to lhis lime, "Anuric" has not
been on sain to the public, but by the
persuasion of many patients ana the
increased demand for this wonderful
healing Tablet, Dr. Pierce has linally
deoided to put it into lhe drug stores
of this country within immediate reach
of all sufferers.
I know of one or two leading druggist" in town who have managed to
procure a supply of "Anuric" fur their
anxious customers in and around this
locality. If not obtainable send one
dime- by mail to Dr. Pierce for trial
package or ot) cents for full treatment.

Animal-; Worth $6,000,000,000
_ tlte're arc about 191,000,000 domes-
tit animals in lhe United States, and
they,ire worth, roughly, $6,000,000,-
,0,00, 'There arc approximately 21,000,-
000 horses, representing an investment of $-,3ll(),l)l)0,00U. The despised
mule may nol he so despised when
vou consider that he. represents $560,-
000,000 of the total wealth and lhal

The   Most   Common   Cause of This
Trouble ls Poor Blood
All conditions of depressed vitality
lend lo disturb the process of digestion, There is not a disturbed condition of life that may not affect digestion. Hut few catiucs of the trouble
arc so common as thin, weak blood,
ft affects directly and at once the process of nutrition. Not only is the action of the gastric and intestinal
glands diminished, but the muscular
action of the stomach is weakened.
Nothing will more promptly restore
digestive efficiency than good, red
blood. Without it the normal activity
of the stomach is impossible.
Thin, pale people who complain of
indigestion must improve the condition oi their blood to lind relief. Thc
most active blood builder in such
cases is Dr. Williams Pink Pills. They
make the rich, red blood which quick-
ly restores thc digestive organs to
their proper activity, and the dyspeptic who has hated the sight and smell
of food now looks forward lo meal
time with pleasure. As proving the
value of Dr. Williams Pink I'ills in
curing indigestion, Miss Edith AI.
Smith, R. R. No. 4, Perth, Out., says:
"I can honestly say I owe my present good health to Dr. Williams Pink
Pills. My stomach was terribly weak
and I suffered from indigestion and
sick headache, and was always very
nervous. I was troubled this way for
nearly llircc years, and in that time
took a great deal of doctors' medicine, which, however, did not help
inc. 1 could not cat anything without experiencing thc most agonizing
pnin. My sick headaches were mosl
violent and I could not rest night or
day. I was asked one day by a friend
to try Dr. Williams Pink Pills, and
consented to do so. Afler taking them
sonic time 1 found they wcrc helping
ntc, and I continued to take them
steadily for several months, until 1
found that I was completely j^urcd.
While taking the pills, I gained both
in strength and weight) and 1 feci il
impossible to praise Dr. Williams
Pink I'ills loo highly."
You can procure these pills through
any dealer in medicine or by mail,
post paid, at 50 cents a box, or six
boxes for $2.50, from The Dr. Williams Medicine Co., Brockvillc, Ont.
The Market Report
Weekly   Grain   Letter   Supplied   by
Randall, Gee & Mitchell, Ltd.,
There is onc feature of the present
wheal situation that is of the utmost
importance, and the one that, undoubtedly, is the cause for the persistent Strength of the market at llic
high level. It is lo bc nolcd that
since the inceptive of lhe advance lhe
situation has grown steadily more
bullish, 'This is a development oul of
the ordinary, as it is generally being
discovered, afler the agitation has
subsided  and  lhe  early reports  have
to be compared with ihc actual outcome that the scare exaggerated conditions, No one .can say lhal lhal is
lhc case this season, for it can be
said that '.Ihe rllll of news which affected crop"jiroihiclioii is slill favorable in high prices, Whatever other
Influences have entered inlo ihe trade
calculations arc influences that arc
based on lhe possibility of lhe world's
supply of bread Bluffs being augmented by lire'Russian surplus liirougli
successful military' operations of 'he
Entente Powers*.  ���   ���
The foundation of lhc presenl bull
market ''vns-.lald, of course, in the
heavy winter,loss in tlio soft wheal
slates. Ai lhal lii'ue, llic liberality of
the world's entry over from lhe generous l'H5,harvest was a drag on any
permanent market response, li wan
lhe time when lhe statistical position
of lhe wheal hung' heaviest on the
market, Importers bad the utmost
confidence of obtaining adequate supplies and felt lhal lhcy had lhc real
advantage in ihc market,
Il was lhc greal heal wave of July
and ils heavy toll of lhe spring wheat
crop that gave the real impetus lo
lhe bull market. The winter wheal
harvest was moderate, and on the top
of thai came a mosl unfavorable
Northwest harvest. From thai lime
on, Ihc developments have been towards a reduction of the world's
wheat production. The yield in thc
United Stales allows only a small reserve above the country's needs, and
a surplus available for the export,
even with lhe carry ovcr of last season, is small when the conditions
governing the. international market
arc taken into account. The latest
reports from Canada indicate a decided shrinkage from expectations,
and the news from the other surplus
countries do not suggest at this writing more than ordinary yields.
It is not expected that importing
countries will increase their production under the. abnormal conditions
that prevail. In fact, the reports arc
unfavorable. The requirements from
exporters will be large this season,
and exporting counlries in the aggregate have far less lo give than last
year. Whether prices have fully discounted this extraordinary situation
is a mailer of debate between the
bulls and the bears. The situation
has not been exaggerated.

Sask. Wheat Wins in World Contest
Saskatchewan wheat has scored
another triumph in world competition, the first award for spring wheat
against all comers at the Canadian
National exhibition, Toronto, being
given to W. S. Simpson of thc Larch-
mount farm, Panibrun, according to
a notification received by Air. Simpson from the directorate.
The wheat which won the prize
was selected from a field of 1916 crop
of registered Marquis wheat, and one
bushels of this high grade wheat was
exhibited. Pambrtin is located on the
Empress branch of llic C.N.R., northwest of Swift Current,

Popularity of Autos
The report of the U.S. Department
of Agriculture shows that there were
2,245,664 motor cars in llie United
Suites on December 31, 1915, as
against 48,000 in 1906. While these
figures may be. somewhat exaggerated, when compared with a compilation of licr-cnsc statistics of the various
states, lhcy are near enough to give
a vivid idea of the growth of the motor industry. The total gross motor
vehicle registration and license revenues arc given as $18,2-15,713, of
which practically 90 per cent, is available for road improvement, so lhat
it will be appreciated what a benefit
to the entire country the automobile
has been, and is.
The increased use of automobiles
by the agricultural community in
Canada during lhc past two years is
onc of lhc wonders of the trade, |

Settlers'Arriving Every Week    '
"Immigration from lhe United
Slates inlo Canada during 1916 has
shown an incjreasc of 100 per cent,
ovcr last year, and this notwithstanding thc efforts of interested parlies
to deflect thc stream," says J. Bruce
Walker, Commissioner of Immigration for the Dominion of Canada, iu
a newspaper interview.
People considering moving into
Canada from across thc border," Mr.
Walker continues, "have been told
that llicy*were in danger of conscription, and would be subject to enormous war taxes. In answer to this,
it may bc said that the Government
has definitely promised that there
will be no conscription in Canada.
Furthermore, the subject of another
country cannot bc conscripted, and
three years' residence in Canada is
necessary before a man can become
a Canadian citizen. Even the most
pessimistic hope and expect that before the. end of three years the great
war will bc ended.
"There is no special war lax in the
West, nor is there likely to bc any.
A war tax to bc effective would have
to bc on lands. By thc constitution
of Canada, only provincial governments can impose taxes on land, and
the Federal government, which is financing Canada's participation in the
war, cannot interfere.
"Between four and five hundred
settlers come inlo Canada from the
United States every week. They can
sell land in their own counlry for
scvculy-fivc dollars an acre and buy

Viewing Battle Scenes
"A _ solemn panorama" is the description given by a woman after
viewing lhc Soinnie films shown in
London. Whether it is desirable to
show actual battle scenes to the
home public had been questioned,
but, as one visitor said, "What our
heroes cau bear to suffer we can bear
to scc."
There is nothing in lhis display to
harrow the feelings or distress those
who have lost beloved Relatives in
the war. The devotion of ihc Empire's young manhood, ihe majestic
offering of Britisii labor, arc rea.izcd
in every detail of the victorious advance. The huge guns which tore up
the German trenches arc pictured in
action, and their effect is seen, nol
only in columns of smoke and volcanic upheavals of the soil, but in the
panic-stricken, woc-begone faces of
the German prisoners. The legend
of German invincibility is destroyed
for ever.
Sonic critics object to lhc scenes
showing lhc wounded in doctors'
hands at the dressing station. The
authorities are wiser. "Look here
and here," they arc saying; "know
what your heroes arc enduring, and
show yourselves worthy of their sacrifice."
nc!, call up a picture that transcends
lhc imaginings of fiction, The Homeric talc of the great hollow horse
by which lhc Greeks tricked the Trojans and look llieir besieged rily, is
far outdone; and so are all ils successors whether real or imagined.
The "tank" is, no doubt, a caterpillar tractor of greal size and power.
It musl be much larger than the
peaceful American' machines, or it
could not cross trenches.     Already

which proceeds to pay the following
tribute to' Britain and the British:
,, "Where the British had been pushing, ihe Germans back by the yard,
they arc now pushing them back by
lho mile. It is not due to any langor
ill the German defence, cither, for the
Associated Press reports show that
llur Kai'cr's men arc doing their best,
which all thc world now knows to be
a doughty best.' The Germans arc
being beaten back because they cannot stand. Some of the scientific German critics rcporled lhat the new
llritish army was not the equal of the
oh! one, almost wiped out at the he-
ginning of lhc war. If this is true
lhc old army must have been superhuman; or perhaps the scientific German critics arc wrong.
"The ualurc of the ground makes
no difference; when lhcy occupy ad-
vaulagcous crests the British drive'
lhe Germans before them, and then
descend and fight on slopes with the
same result. Everywhere the Germans give way before them, not because they have weakened their resistance for strategic reasons, but because after fighting their hardest
there is nothing left for them to do.
Over their wonderful defences goes
thc new British invention, born of
necessity, the armored car that can
ride over chasms. But it is nqt any
scientific invention that has driven thi
Germans back; it is thc manhood of
the United Kingdom and its colonies,
maligned by stay-at-home critics for
two years and now giving a terrific
"'England will fight to the last
Frenchman.' 'Everybody fights but
John Bull.' What has become of those
comfortable slurs from easy chairs
and typewriter desks? It was so easy
to make them, while a democratic
nation with a little army, caught unprepared because its people had been
afraid of 'militarism,' was seeing its
reviled soldiers die in vain. It has
lakeu that democratic nation long to
raise an army equal to Germany's under fire, but no longer than it would

say that I didn't stay long at the

a little the best of Fritz at that, as
you see I joined the Machine Guu
Section when I got over here, and
as I sent over to Fritz about six
thousand rounds before he had the
luck to hit me. I think that I have
a little better score than he has.
However, he hit me on Aug. 31
with a piece of shrapnel about a.i
inch square, which entered my
chest 3-4 in. above and 3*4 iu. to
the lest of my left nipple, and after
tearing the lining of my left lung it
came out through my back at the
level of the eighth rib, which it
partially fractured. The wound in
my chest is practically healed up
now, and the wound in my back is
doing verv nicely, while my breathing doesn't hurt very much any
more so I expect the lining of the
lung is healing too, I am quite

Rumania on Water Wagon
According    to the Vossischc    Zci-
individual bravery has risen rather
than diminished in the long years of
comparative peace. Lists such as
these are the best answer to those
who assumed the degeneracy of the
race before war broke out. As wc
read of the acts which have been singled out for mention, we have the
feeling that the tests applied to heroism have never before been so
strict, and that a man musl do something very exceptional indeed before
his claims to distinction arc recognized.���Westminster Gazelle.

"Safety First" With Firearms
F.ach year the shooting season records a long list of accidents due to
carelessness of Tiunlcrs in lhc forest
and in lhc use of firearms.
A gun going off accidentally and
hilling the owner, climbing fences
with the gun loaded and cocked, or
shooting at a companion in mistake
for an animal arc stereotyped causes.
With the knowledge of the danger of
handling firearms, it is surely incumbent upon hunters lo exercise every
precaution and keep continually before them the motto "safety first."

Calls for Vengeance
Maori Member of New Zealand Parliament Makes Striking Speech
A_ striking speech was made at the
closing session of the House of Representatives of the Dominion Parliament at Wellington, N.Z., by Dr,
Pomare, a member of the Cabinet
and a Maori. A resolution was be
fore the House expressing the Parliament's inflexible determination to
"continue the war lo a successful
end," when Dr. Poniarc arose and
"Today Aegean breezes stir the
grasses ovcr lhe graves of mine and
yours, and wherever a Maori hear
the moan of the wind, whenever he
hears the boom of guns it remind;
him that away beyond the seas ulu
(revenge) has got lo be brought
about for lhc dead. For that reason
the Maori's determination to end lhc
war victoriously is just as inflexible
as that of the pakeha (white man).
One result of the war will bc the cohesion of the Empire and the understanding between the different races
under the British flag. The spirit of
Rcwi and of other big fighters lives
in the Maori today, and he erics hi
the same spirit of defiance, 'Akc, akc,
ake!' (for ever and for ever)."
In piling for vengeance for the
Maori dead Dr. Poniarc had particular reference to lhc handful of soldiers of his race who, with a few
while New Zealandcrs, reached, after
desperate fighting, and held for a
few minutes during thc Suvla Bay
operations, a position from which
they could see the central Dardanelles. This, it is said, was the utmost point reached by any of the
allied troops in the Gallipoli campaign.

The Modern Scourge
and How to Meet it
Mrs. Bloom: Do you find it more
economical to do your own cooking?
Mrs. Synie: Oh, yes; my husband
doesn't cat half as much as he did!
The speed at which we live, the hustle now so
necessary for   success   have  unfortunately a very
adverse effect on the nervous and digestive systems
of Canadians. The baneful results, increased lately
to an alarming degree, often lay the seeds of more
deadly trouble, but it will be satisfactory to learn
of the ever-increasing popularity in thc Dominion, of the Great
British Remedy, Dr. Cassell's Tablets.
Dr. Ramsay Colles, J.P. of the City of Dublin, a man of high eminence in the scientific
world, says:���" I have great pleasure in expressing my satisfaction as to the curative effect of
Dr. Cassell's Tablets in cases of nerve troubles, From several cases which have lately come under
my notice I am able to form lhe opinion (hat Dr. Cassell's Tablets constitute a safe and reliable
family remedy, and appear to be specially effective for nerve and bodily weakness."
Dr. Cassell's Tablets are Nutritive, Restorative, Alterative, and Anti-Spasmodic, and of great
therapeutic value in all derangements of the Nerve, Digestive, and Functional Systems in old or
young. They are the recognised modern home remedy for Dyspepsia, Nervous Breakdown,
Stomach Catarrh, Kidney Disease, Nerve and Spinal Paralysis, Infantile Paralysis, Rickets, St.
Vilus' Dance, Anaunia, Sleeplessness, Brain Fag, Headache, Palpitation, Wasting Diseases, Vital
Exhaustion, Loss of Flesh, and Premature Decay. Specially valuable for Nursing Mothers and
during the Critical Periods of Life.
Druggists and Dealers throughout Canada tell Dr. Cassell's Tablets.  If not procurable in your city send to the*>
sole agents, Harold F. Ritchie & Co., Ltd., 10, McCaul Street, Toronto; 1 tube SO cents, 6 tubes lor the price of five.

Tickets are now on sale for a con.
cert and dance to be held in the
school house next Monday evening
iu aid of the Belgian children now
remaining in that pa_t of Belgium
now occupied by the Germans.
Before deciding upon how many
tickets you will take think upon
the increasing hardships thrust upon the innocent children, That a
pitiless winter is fast approaching,,
and that they are in the clutches of
a still less pitiful enemy who has
robbed them of heart, home, and
kindred, That while they are being
supplied by the Neutral Commission for relief with a daily rati on,
this is barely sufficient to keep them
alive, That we here are safe from
any such inhuiii-ii sacrifices as have
been forced upon them, That
while the little we can do will not
iu itself bring relief to the two aud
a half millions of children estimated to be remaining in that part of
Belgium still held by the Germans.
it is hoped lhat in conjunction with
the efforts of other school children
throughout the Dominion of Canada all of which aro using their utmost endeavors at the same time
that a substantial offering' may be
made towards alleviating the sufferings of Belgian children, and thereby frustrating Germany's systematic warfare on children and in
