Complaint Against Canadians
Archdeacon Madden of Liverpool,
who died recently after a very shori
illness, says lhe Canadian Associated
Press, was always fond of relating his
Canadian experiences. Of llic Canadians he made one complaint that
they would not respond lo the humorous side of his speeches, lie invited
them to encourage him with a Utile
applause, or even groans, but Ihey
sat stolid. Even one night when ibe
speeches were Ioiir-, and Ihe evening
lale, and tlie chairman gave out as
the closing hymn, ''The Morning Light
is Breaking," no one smiled.
One day lie was strap-hanging in a
Liverpool tram when he heard close
by cei'tain mutterlngs and perceived
a si rung smell of Scotch, Then up
rose a big worklngman, steadying
himself for ono minute, he glared
round on ihe passengers, saying "Am
I Ihe only religious layman in lhe car?
Mere Archdeacon, lake my seat."

Will lie also Rive us a definition
of "honest beer" and where It cnu
be obtained in 11   C. ?

In a long article in the  issue ol j

of prohibition the following extract

Many .if them relatevpe< iRe instances     Overdue nc.ouills from salaried patrons are   lessening,  and ancient statements   are bung marked,

25 or 50 cents worth.
"One merchant told me," declared Major Albee, " that his cash

Dr. David II. Reedcr writes aa follows nl appendicitis :������ ���
"In 1'iiiisidei'inK the treatment of any condition of sickness it.
lms a'.-viiys been my rule lo first find the cause. To my
mind, It's tho only logical way. Many people, seem to think
that If they have bad an operation for appendicitis they aro
.forever Immune, and need have no further fear along thai
lino, but I say emphatically, and .1 think you will agree l
mn right, that after an attack of appendicitis, even though
you have been successfully operated upon and the appendix
removed, your troubles have only Just begun unless you
remove the cause.   V.'hat was the cause of the appendicitis '.'
"The thoughtless will say Inflammation in the atppendlx.
No, Inflammation in lhe appendix Is appendicitis, but what
caused th*i Inflammation, V Constipation, yes. that is tho
prime cause. IC you were never constipated you would
forever be safe. Appendicitis is only one ot the results of
the retention of fecal matter ln the colon for too long a
There is no longbr any question that lhe real cause of
appendicitis is constipation. By keeping the bowels regular
you uot only prevent appendicitis, Imt also a host of other ills,
some of which are even more dangerous than appendicitis.
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver I'ills are recommended to you ia this
connection, not as a mere relief by effecting tho movement of
tha bowels, but rather as a positive cure for constipation, As
is well known, the bile secreted by the healthful action of llio
liver is Nt lu ''s eallini'tie. So long as ihe bile flows freely
into the in .mes there is no constipation of the bowels and
no clogging of the excretory organs. Hence the wisdom of
using Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills to ensure regular working
of the liver, kidneys and bowels. Vou thereby save yoiirsel-
muo.h ineonvenienee from the minor ills of life, and cusuro
against such fatal diseases as appendicitis and peritonitis.
