"The Fall of the Romanllts," which
is coming to the Maple Leaf Theatre
on Saturday night, Sept. 14. is withou
a parallel, both from the point if view
of the subject   and the   photography.
Russia's history for ihe past fifteen
years is vividly lold. All the characters, who by their ruthless deeds helped to bring about the state of affairs
which ed up 10 the revolution, are
shown as in actual life. Rasputin,
the most notorious of hose characters,
his life and death, and those with
whom lie was associated, ar met face
to face. Illodor, ihe "mad monk," appears pei-rsonally in the pict ne, and It

Dunlop Motto;
"Please the People!"
THINK OF THIS: The first automobile
tire made in Canada was virtually
an enlargement of the Dunlop Patented
Bicycle Tire. And during all those years
that the automobile tire has been striving
to reach its present standard, the bicycle
tire that served as a model has gone
right on pleasing the bicycle owners.
Yeats ot doing it well���that and nothing
more could make Dunlop Tires as
supreme as they are to-day.

The Part Long Distance Plays
The part the telephone plays In business and social life ts
often never appreciated un- til an emergency arises. Recently
a case arose where Long Distance was asked to get on the
wire a party who was cruis ing on a yaoht in the Gulf of Georgia.
It was not known where he was, -but the message was extremely
urgent. Without detailing the work of the operator, or the num.
ber of places called, It is enough to saj- that the party was located and a message sent o ut by row boat that he was wanted on
the   telephone.    Then  he talked with Vancouver.
On cuch occasions the Inestimable value of the telephone Is
brought home

For Ignoring the regulation which
calls for a reckoning for bad eg_rs
purchased from producers or country
dealers, over and above am allowance-,
of one per ent, the William Davies
Company and the Matthews Blackwel1
Compaany, both of Montreal, have
been forbidden to buy, sell, or otherwise deal in eggs for 30 days. According to the regulations in force since
Tune 1st last every dealer p'aclng
eggs ln cold storage is required to furnish to the operator if the warehouse
a statement in writing certifying that
such ggs have been candled and that
bad or unsound eggs have been removed. No licensee of the Canada
Pood Board is permitted to pay or de-
ces* of an allowed margin of one per
cent on the total amornt of the transaction). The objec of the Canada
Food board was ti make the handling
of such egguunproflitable for the dealer .who is row obliged to charge f-em
tack against those from whom they
were originally purchased In the
case M the two companies under bus-
r-enslon, it was found that no attempt
had been made to charge back agalns
those from whom they were originally
puroha'Ted. In thecase if the two
companies under suspension it was
found that no attempt hnd been made
t'T charge back for unsound etxm in
this wav. although the candling records showed percentages mnnlne as
hleh as fourteen. A firm in Char-
ettetlwn has heen dlsclpllnedln lhe
same wav for a similar offence.
It was iwmtfept'y nothing but fair
that the public henldrot be- called upon to piircbae had eg'. If a dealer
nurchae bad eggs and pay for them
the least trouble fnr him wluld be ti
say nothing ablitt It after finding rut
the fact by candling, but pass the e~g
on Into the channel of trade, where
the consumer would eventually nay
f*>r the loss. Rvervbldy else who bun-1
died the eggs f**om the rrfdueer to the
r"tall storekeeper, would thus have
ohTged tf-elr profits and expenses
| just the tome. By the order of tha
Canada Food Board it is provide!* i
that bad eggs be reported nnd chare-'
pd back to their source of origin sn
Hint the loss Is borne by the part'e��*'
! reRponslbe for Iheir delay In reaching
1 the market fresh. Jn these times of
Me-h nrlees for pgtrs and other food
commldliy. the consumer Is doubly
entitled lo fresh eege bought, In good
I faith In the reeiilar wav. Produce*-*
| should be careful of tb* stock thev
s-11 and dealers should be watchful of
the stock they buy.
Afler nlnros two years of negotiation church union at Fernle is now
