Pink Pills
Is youi child fidgety, restless, o
irritable? Are the hands shaky or
lire arms jerky? Docs the face
twitch:' Do the lets tremble or drag?
These arc signs of Si. Vitus Dance,
a nervous disease which is confine I
chiefly to youni. children, but which
often allYcts highly-strung women,
and sometimes men. Sl. Yilus Dance
is caused hy disordered nerves, due
lo poor blood, and is always cured
hy the use of Dr, Williams' Pink
I'ills which fill tbe veins wilh new,
rich red blood, strengthening Ihc nerves, and thus drawing out the disease. Merc is proof: Mrs. John A.
Cumtning, Lower Caledonia, I\'. S.,
says: "When my daughter Myrtle j
lias about nine years of age she became afflicted with St. Vitus Dance,
ihe. trouble ultimately became 3o
had thai she could nol hold anything
iu her han.Is, and had to he fed like
a child. She could nol even walk!
across ike floor without help. She
was treated for some lime hy a physician, but did noi show any improvement. Onc day a neighbor said she
had read of a case of St. Vitus Dance
cured by Dr. Williams' l'ink Pills,!
and wc decided to give this medicine
a dial. Hy lhc lime thc. third box
was used there was some improvement in her condition, and we continued giving her the pills for about
a month longer when she was entirely '
Hired, and has not since bad the
least return of the trouble.
Dr. Williams' l'ink Pills can be obtained from any dealer in medicine
or by mail at 50 cents a box or six I

National Prohibition
The man who would burn a million
bushels of grain in this time of national emergency would be branded
as a traitor. But even morc a traitor is the man who makes a million
bushels of grain into beer or whisky,
for he destroys its usefulness ai effectively as if it had been burned, and
at the. same time lessens the efficiency
of thousands of men at a time when
the. nation needs the best efforts of
every onc of its citizens. National
prohibition is a necessity in the face
of thc present  food  shortage.     It  Is

of this country fully appreciates what
the fanners have done during the
past two years. In urging them to
maintain their efforts, though confronted with more difficult conditions, I do it, not because of Ibe high
prices which will doubtless hold for
nearly all food products, but because
of the important and special service
which Canadian agriculture can render the Empire at this juncture. All
who assist in this work render a
great service to the state. 1 do not

What the Yukon Has Given
Ovcr six hundred men have corn,,
from Dawson since tlie. war began.
Many walked long distances to enlist. In 1914 the first band of men
from the. Yukon begun to train, and,
eventually, went to France, aud won
distinction. The latter word is used
advisedly, for seven men in the Yukon Motor Gun Detachment won tho
Military Medal, the captain was
awarded the Military Cross, and a
number were promoted. Now a new
body of men is in England in training���the Yukon Infantry company,
C.E.F., in command of Captain Geo
Black, better known as the Com
missioner of thc Yukon Territory
who has a.s a corporal Lyman Muu-

The average man can easily afford
a Ford car. It is the most inexpensive car to drive,
20 to 25 miles on a gallon of
gasoline is an eyervday occurance.
33 miles is frequently reported by
Ford owners, Yearly repair expenses of less than one dollar are
not unusual. The car is light in
weight, and tires give more mile
age on a Ford than on anv other
You can buy a Ford for yourself
and one for your wife for the price
of one car at $1000, You can run
both Fords at about the same expense as one larger, heavier car.
You can always sell a " used "
