London.—Commenting on the decision ol te senate in rejecting the
naval b.ll, the Moraine Poat declare*
lt .annot but be viewed wltb gia e
concern by everyone converenut witb
wltb tbs gravity ol the problem, ol
Imperial defence' It means both a
moral and material lose to tbe naval atrengtb ol tbe empire.
"lbs action ol tbe Canadian govern _ nt   in   proponing   to pio'ide
thro* tret clans battleships to re-in-
loree tbe Britiah fleet, made n profound Impression In tba world. Now
tbat elect   will largely be undone.
Foreign natlona will not study tbe
detain ot   the controversy between
tbe two pa. tics In Cinidn. lh y will
probably pay little attention to the
Ubeial plan lor creating lleet units.
Wbat will Impress them will be tbe
apparent refusal ol tbe Canadian legislature to sanction the proposal lor
hei Ing to strengthen tbe naval re-
sour _a of the em ire.    By Britain's
rivals and enemies the decision wll.
be ta;erly wtlcomed, by her Mends
lt will be regaided aa ominous.
WRONG IMPRESSION CREATED.
"The Impression must thus be In
a l.ably created tbat the solidarity
of the enjiite   s but a my.h; tbat
the sea-powers which would llie' to
aee the overthrow of the British na
val supremacy need not be dlscour
aged by tbe thought tbat their cbal
tengj would be mat by tbe united resources ol the   mother country -.nd
daughter states.    Such an Impress*
aion, too, must be heightened by tbe
doet'.ne advanced by tbe opposition
to lastly tbelr   refusal to provide
three battleships   tor tbe imperial
Ueet. i
"Thi naval atrengtb ol tbe empire
muat, howevor, be maintained at all
eoata. II the Canadian government
lor lbs moment Is unable to pro.ide
ahl.a tka fo.amment ol tbe united

Churchill baa aald tbat whatever decision Is mads by Canada, Oreat Britain wtll njt under in/ circun a an

BLAME FOR CHURCHILL.
Tbe Daily Chroniile upbolda the
actun of tbe Can dian aena oa aa
b Id entirely cons ltutlocal and
pontj out tbit Premier Borden won
tba 1 at election largely on tbe red-
fjc.ty issue.    He his since brought
rward a lar-ieaciitg propose! on
l entirely disconnected usue,   en
a forced bis bill through tb: do
nlon house ol commons by aid ol
ata   party   ma.orlty.    The    senate
legitimately refuses to pass tbe bill
nt.l tbe country has been canvaased.
hy Premier Borden refuses to con
suit the country by means (if a refer
ndum In   not easy to understand.
here ls no doubt, bowe.er, tbat
.'rom point of efllclcncy the Laurier
arty Is entirely wrong, hut lt Is lm-
/osslhle to neglect the sentiment and
..de which these young nations led
n tbeir growing greatness and yet it
,,re<.tiy to be regretted that   Mi
burcbill intervened In this Canadian
political dispute by presenting   tb.
idmlralty p. 1 it of view wiih lnjudic
ous emphasis."
COMMENT OK OBSERVER."
"Ibe delay may prove a blesain
n dlaguke if lt results ln a more
.a„hatlc deel ration ol the determination of tbe Cnnadlan people to
.ear their own share In the naval defence."
■ n.s ls the hopeful view of the Ob-
..r/er, in connection with the action
.it the Canadian senate with regard
,'v Via _>!_*. "ival bill. The 0|>-
.erver retrains from offering a worn
ol criticism ot the senators' action.
The paper thinks that it would be
■veil ln Canada, as well as In the
aomeland to leave tne queation of Imperial defence out of party politics
.Itogether.
"Tbe senators have acted according to tbelr own conception ol tbelr
duty," pursues the Observer, but in
lace of thla decision, the paper cells
upon Right Hon. Winston Obureblll
.o go ahead wtth the laying down
of tbree battleships so they mny be
completed by 1915. II Premier Borden eventually succeeds In his purpose, lt will then bo possible lor him
take over the ships on account ol
Janada, at -whatever stage tbey have
.Cached.
•"Should he fall, however, tt wlll
ue a matter lor negotiation between
bla successor and the admiralty
whether they are retained aa cults
ln tbe royal navy or purchased by
Canada aa tba nucleus ol ber tuton
odious fleet. Nothing wtll have been
compromised or even very seriously
delayed, II tbe first lord ol tb: admiralty will simply steel himself to
do bis plain duty."

The Fifteenth Convention of the
Canidlcn Forestry Aesocla.ion lor
ths presentation ol addresses and papers, and tbe discussion ot forestry
questions, wlll be held ln Winnipeg,
July 7, 8 and 9, 191S. While spec
lal attention will be given to prairie
conditions, the program will leir
testimony to the national character
ol the work iu tbat tbe problena
now pressing for solution n both
East and West will be carefully considered.
Assurances have been received from
the Dominion and nearly all the Pro
vlnces, that they will be oUclolly
represented. Many Crnadlrn authorities on lorestry and related problems will be present, and a numbei
ol men in the United Stat s, bin
UMallHed to give assistance in regard
to our conditions have already sign!
.led their intention ol attending.
While the details ol the program
cannot yet be given, it ls expected
that the proceedings will be opened
by His Honor the Lieutenant Gov-
ernos, on Monday evening, July T,
at an official reception in which thi
delegates wlll bo welcomed by tbe
representatives ol the Government oi
Manitoba, City ol Winnipeg, etc.
The lollowlng two days wlll be devoted to the work of the Convention,
alone with such entertainment lea
tures at: Bhall be ...lunged.
The public sessions will be held ln
one ot the halls cl tha Winnipeg In
d it-trial Bureau, which ls well adapted to nanu.'.*!.-*. con.en l„solali
inds. It Is centrally Vo*8tod at tb
corner ol Main and Water Sts., an
has tbe necessary odlces, committee
rooms, etc.
Owing to the Inct that the Genu
dian Forestry Aeioclaticn has never
met belore In Winnlueg, thore will he
brought up lor the Ilrst time, a number ol problems which relate to th
great central part ol Canada. These
wlll include that of the protection
and perpetuation of the forosta ol
■Vestern Ontario, end ol northern
Manitobn..Saskatchewan and Alber
ta; the beat methods of handling
prairie forest reserves, and tbe possibilities of tho same in supplying
timber, fence posts, poles and cord-
wood lor tbe settlers; tbe need o
getting under timber the sand lands
whlcb wtll never produce any otber
profitable cropj but troea, and the
rate of growth ln the central parts
dl Canada as _ basis for decid n i tbe
possibility of economical lorestry,
under these conditions. Along wit,
all theae will go the dlscusiion of lb
value ol forests as windbreaks, sou
cea ol stream supply, and as co er
lor Insectivorous birds. Farm fores
try, shelter belts to protect burnings
ind orchards, and use ot beiges wi'l
bo discussed, as will also tbe donjers
Irom Insects and how these may be
combated.
Throughout the whole Convention
the aim will be to have all papers
and discussions as practical as possible. Representative lumbermen, agriculturists, railway offlcla'a, business men aud Icresters will show
how vitally interested the whole
community la ln the hand Ing of o ir
lorsst resources In a rational way,
wnlch will permit their beat uae not
only tor the present, but for all time
to come.
The proper handling ol our lorests
is ol vital Interest to every Canadian, and to this Convention are invited all patriotic citizens who des
Ire to do what they can to have
Canada's niturali direst resources
conserved by wise use, both lor tbe
present nnd lor coming generations.
CANADA'S  NEEDS.
Cannda's torest urea In about BOO,
000,000 acres.
Canada possesses some six hun-trr
b 1 Ion board leet ol mercantile tlm
ber, worth perhaps   tin billion dol
lars.
Canadians art cutting ofl this tl
her at the rate of about   100 loir
e-t ier acre, or eight billion boar,
feet a year.
The Sre lo a is estimated to be .60
board leet per acre per tnnim.
We are allowing Irom lllty million
to two hundred million dollars worth
of tbls timber to bum up every
year,
Wo™ than that, we are burnln*
young growth, lorest litter and sol
fertility cn hundreds of thousands of
acres. That means no timber in
tbe Iuture lor our children and cbll
dren'a cbldren. Forest Area, con
tlnued, ma's deserts.
With tbe trees and young growth
go to the roots end so 1 co er, wit
their undoubted powers ol boldln
water and (ill toge bor. Floods
come from districts where the trece
have been removed.
Fifty per cent ol Canada is capabl
ol growing tree crops and nothing
else.
Only a traction of tbis absolute
lorest area la g. owing tress aa it
might. Tbe rest is comparatively
unproductive.
We een not live without wood. Everything Irom tbo bouaes we live in
to the boots wo read is made ol the
uroduct ot the lorest. We must ha.e
it.
To keep us In timber, pulp, an e i
liable water supply, fish and game,
wo must have trees.
On the prairie,    shelter belts an
„t,'dl"tH are protecting crops, nto.

There la a den_ni for millions
more.
'ihe experience of tree planters and
far-seeing fanners, Indicates tbat
there wll ba . demand for tens of
millions more.
We muat have trees, in tho torest,
on the prairie, on sandy landa, 'in
toans and cities.
It takes yeara to grow trees—not
hours or days.
lf we want our trees protected wt
must care for them now. Today ls
Utty years '■'ago" Irom tbe year 1961
—and tbat ia not very lar away.
All Canada a modern development,
—Confederation, tbe great railways,
tbe growth ol tha West, moat great
machines—have come in the hut fifty
years.
The seedlings ol tbat day are
scarcely moro tban tie timber now.
Filty yeara is a very short time
in tbo 11 e elf a lorest. most ol tha
timber being cut ln British Columbia today la over two hundred years
old-eome ol lt ls over eight hundred.
There is a crisis coming—when tbe
lorests whlcb lor a century men have
thought '''Inexhaustible" are going
go'.ng to he greatly depleted.
We must prepare for that contingency.
Stop the fires.
Stop the waate ln logging, milling
and utilisation.
Stop the Insect and lungus depred-
tlons.
Cut timber only wben it is "ripe"
when It wlll produce aa much value

The Illusive Flame
Unliearaeil Incidents Impart a zest
to amateur drama tic lire,
At a performance tho Uoro of tho
drama protlueoil uum malting Hla escape from a burning house, Tli.*
critical moment came when tho red*
firo had to be lighted, but to the uon-
bternuUon of all It wu-jM not Ignite,
Somo outside practical Joker must
havo damped it.
I am choking, uhviel.ert the hero, Lho
(.moke In over power! tig mc, uud,
clutching wildly at hla throat, he tottered about tho tilage.
The flames--I foel them, ho cried.
Hut BiuoUf. and flames wero alike lu-
vlnible.
Within lho wings the olher members
of tho company wero on their kneet,
distractedly crying to blow lhe red Are
luto a blaze. Matchboxes and vesta
oases were emptied of their contents,
ladles were fanning with their petti-
coats, hut all to uo purpose—Lho red
fire was off.
Would no one save tho situation?
Tho audience began lo titter, tho hero
lost Ills Iw-ai, and still rambled nn the
lire that no ono could see, until at
last some ouo In tho gallery relieved
the tension by calling out:
Never mind tho fire, guv'nor- got
on with your Job. ,
And straightway lho actor did. He
fell to the Btago In a swoon and down
camo tho greatest friend In such an
emergency—tho curtain.
Identity Unmistakable
Dull and grey was the afternoon.
Slowly with reluctant footsteps, Walter William made his way towards the
Sunday-school, It the truth be told
In oue fell nwoop, he was not ft lover
of Sunday-school, and woro it uot for
parental compulsion, would eaBlly havo
found some other way of cougenlnlly
passing tho tt.ne,
Aa so often happens whon one Is
down in the dumps, another bitter
blow was In store for Walter William.
He had two beautiful new pennies, one
for tho Sunday-school, and its brother
for the purpose of buying swoets or
Borne similar delicacy.
Unhnpplly, ho lost ond of the bright
new coins, and in due courso roported
the event nt the maternal headquarters.
But, Walter, which of the two pennies did yoa lose?
Mack came the reply, like a rifle bullet:
Oh, the Sunday-school one, mother,
of course.
A Family Affair
Mrs. New.ywcd'8 mother was terribly perturbed. A llttlo bird, who
ought to havo known better, had whispered luto hor ear that Mr. Newly
wed was addicted to tbe awful practice of playiug cards at his club.
Yes, remarked Mrs. Newly wed to
her mother, It's quite right. Frederick
ploys overy night, but It doesn't matter, for ho Rives mo all his winnings.
But my dear Olssle—
Oh, It's all right, mother dear! Ho
nearly always plays with Mr. Next-
door.
But what difference does tbat make?
Well, you see, explained tho young
wife, Mrs. Nextdoor makes hor husband give her all his winnings, too.
Then wo Just change over. I give
her all Frederick's winnings, and she
gives mo tUb winnings of her husband.
Ohl remarked ma, rather pained.
Thus, you see, wound up Mrs, Now-
lywed, both Mrs. Nextdoor and myself
get more out of our husbands than
wo could possibly hope tu do by any
other means.

round of   almost   evorr   newspaper
throughout Canada and England, a
letter complaining ot the absenco ot
the British flag la tho Alms of the
thousands of moving picture shows,
not  only    throughout    Canada  but
throughout   the whole   of   the British Empire, while in tho United States
the poople appear to be so blgotted ln
their Ideas  if patriotism and loyalty
and obedience to their own flag that
they dlscry and abominate any other,
and thla ls (t which prompts this letter.     It Is deplorable that bo strong
a   feeling   prevails ovory   time   tho
British flag Is exhibited, although It
Is bo seldom   that   the   number   ot
times ran be counted on one hand,
while most pictures contain the American. But tlio time Is coming when all
will be changed.     Picture halls will
have tho opportunity of not only exhibiting the   British   and   Canadian
flags, but of other Empire pictures on
a large seal.-).     Montreal la to bo tho

Itecently a valuable property 1ms been |

Eire dear to tbo heart of all real Canadians, and even   tho most   modern

become one of tiie greatest the world
bas ever known.     This company Is
the only onn of its hind operating hi

surfeited In the past by tho goods of
tho American producer, nnd in view
of the   considerable   correspondence
that is constantly appearing   In   tho

a national character are being mado to

a vivid display of tho Amorlcan Hag.
I nm sure 'hat the Overseas Club of

No Christmas Catalogue This Year
It is now high time to think of Christmas and your Cbri.tm.is
seeds. A llttlo later on the malls will be so heavy that delays aro
liable lo occur; and a little later on our Mail Order Department will
be ao rushed with business that we wlll have difficulty ln giving the
attention to orders  that  we desire to do, and that we usually do.
We are not Issuing a Christmas Catalogue this year, but our regular Catalogue contains a very full list of articles suitable for Yule-
tide remembrances.
The great advantage of Including theso ln our regular Catalogue
ls that our customers can order their Christmas requirements at
thc same time as they are ordering other goods, and la this way
save considerable ln transportation,
Make your selection early, and order early, so as to have all the
advantage of aa unbroken assortment.
Ot course we have made provision for big business but It always
happens that there ls a big run on certain lines which sometimes
quickly exhausts our supply. You can avoid disappointment by
ordering early.
If you bave not had a copy of our Fall and Winter Catalogue
write Hor lt and we wlll send it to you at once It ls well worth having as It Is Uie biggest and beat we have ever Issued, while our

UNLAWFUL STRIKES
Not Lonp Ago a Workmen's Walk-Out
Was Treated as Conspiracy.
At oue time, not so long ago, It was
a very serious thing for a body of
British workmen to go on strike, fur
they -..variably offended the authorities and brought tbemselves within
the scope of tho criminal law.
Indeed, prior to 1875, a strike waa
generally deemed an unlawful conspiracy, and was punishable as a
Crime- lu that year an act of Parliament was passed which exacted
that uny agreement or combination
by twr or more persons (o do'or procure to b<- done any act in contemplation or furtherance of a trade dispute
between employers and workmen shall
not bu indictable us a conspiracy, If
such net commixed by one person
would nut be punishable tis a crime.
The simple effect of that act of Par-
llameut was lo prevent a body of
men being charged with conspiracy
when tliey were only doing what one
mau lould do. It did not legalize
Strikes lu any way—that la, it does
not take strikes and lockouts wlthlu
tbe protection of the law; It simply
made striker no longer criminal.
This act of Parliament led to tho
system or picketing--that abused system of using moral persuasion to get
non-strlkcrs lo stop work, and which
Ird to such remarkable scenes wheu
a slrl-'c wus on.
Trade un.oiis themselves are not by
any means modern institutions
Roughly speaking, they aro about 100
years old. They came Into existence
about the same time that machinery
became popular, one being a conse-
qtiuuce of Ihe other. Until the Trade
Union Act or 1871 trade unions were
Illegal ft.r nil purposes whatever, and'
It wus Illegal for trustees to hold property lu trust for such a union. They

HAY AND WHEAT
Some Very Interesting Facts Disclosed by Blue-Book Statistics
Despite the fact that lhe average
Canadian considers wheat lhe great
asset of our farm lauds, and looks
to It as the .source of much ot Canada's future wealth, wheat does not
hold the flrsi place just now. Hay—
ordinary, common hay—is the most
valuable Held crop grown in Canada.
In 1911 the hay crop was worth $161.-
314,00., while wheat came second at
$186,567,000 and oats third at $126,-
812,000.
In 1911 tho ncreago of hay liy Ontario was 2,301,468, as against _,204,-
021 in 1910 Ontario produced last
yeur 4.238,862 tons, or 1.28 tons per
acre; in 1910, 5,402,653 tons, or 1.71
tons per acre. This will Indicate the
extent of injury done to cropa last
summer, since, with an acreage of
116,460 more than hi 1910, the crop was
lens hy 1,254,291 tons. The market
value of the crop for 1911 has not
heen Issued yet, but officials state
lhat It will he considerably over that
of 1910, which amounted to $64,407,-
105, This means that lhe proceeds
of one-third of Canada's hay crop
goes to Ontario farmers.
While careful Inquiry has resulted
in some complaints fvcai fanners that
the persistent cold "cather has been
detrimental to the timothy hay crop,
in that it l_ not attaining full growth,
the prospects on the whole are for a
bumper crop this summer. While
considerable quantities of clover grass
were winter killed, a large percentage
of the ploughed-up grain fields was
replanted ln hay and fodder.
The chief reason wliy hay maintains its high place on the farm Is
lhat there is more money gotten out
of it for the labor put Into it than
perhaps for any other commodity,
Statistics show that the average yield
in 1910 was 171 tons per acre. At
Ihe average price for 1910 of $11 per
ton this means about $19 an acre.
Putting Ontario wheat at 90c. per-
bushel the average yield of wheat per
acre would have to be over 21 bushels
to give the Bame value in money.
The farmer well knows how much
more labor the production of wheat
involves than the production of hay.
Then again, while the value of wheat
is more of less constant, that, of hay
varies from year to year, and $11 is
a low average. The average last
years was much higher.
It would not do, however, for Ontario farmers to go into hay-raising
altogether, as lt would soon decline
in price below the proportional market value of wheat. Then, the motor
truck and motor car are helng substituted for the horse so rapidly that Us
effect will he seriously felt ere long
In the hay market Itself.
Motorcycles
A motorcycle Is a bicycle with a
pandemonium attachment.
The motorcycle Is equipped with
a motor small enough to be put In
a large pocket and loud enough to
till a colllseum comfortably. This
motor ls connected with the rear
wheel tf the bicycle, and when it is
in the mood will revolve the wheel
with tremendous speed, thus causing the bicycle to proceed from hither to yon over buggies, pedestrians,
fences and small outbuildings.
A motorcycle Is really a miniature
automobile wftii full sized uo.lse, smell
aud dirt ouiput. it is not started by
cranking, however, hut by pedaling
the whole machine along the road until the motor emerges from Its coma
and gets ou the job. An automo*
hli ist. can he detected hy his vast
overhanging shoulders and calloused
hands. A motorcyclist, however,
may have arms like plpestems, but
his le__ are seven sizes too large lor
him.
A motorcycle ts not as comfortable
as a camel or a lumber wagon, hut
It is very swift, and there Is nothing
that feels mm*, like flying than to
ride a large barytone motorcycle over
the country roads at fifty miles au
hour, leaping lightly from bump to
bump—except, to leave the machine
when It has struck a rock and to soar
swiftly through the unstable atmosphere until some jugged section of
thp hemisphere Interferes with further progress.
Motorcycles are very useful and
havo almos- annihilated distance and
cheap clothes. They should be ridden lu costume, except by very
wealth)' and careless men- A pair
of leather punts with asbestos lining
aud a two bushel hip pocket for tools
a padded vest, heavy gloves, a pair
of goggles and nose and shin guards
make a tasty aud useful rig for the
cyclist./ Diossed in this fashion the
enthusiast can enjoy himself to the
full as lie caroms from tree to tree
und gorges himself with dust, oil and
excitement.
.Motorcycles should br- treated with
respect at. all times nnd should not be
interfered with when In a hurry.

TO CONSERVE MOISTURE
Writt.n by  E. B.    House,    Engineer
Colorado Experiment Station,
Port Collins, Colorado.
It Is a well known fact that ground
which is kept iooso on top wtll evaporate much less water than a soil
Whloh is packed on top. The moisture which escupes Into the air Is
absolutely lost so far as the plants
growing ln that particular Held are
concerned, and If anything can be
done to hold tills moisture In the
ground so that it may reach the roots
of the growing crop, It is of course
the thing to strive for, and will prove
a benefit to the plant growing ln the
field.
Borne years ago one of the representatives from the Agricultural College was visiting an up-to-date fanner in the country, and the farmer
showed him a field of wheat which
Illustrated this harrowing in a remarkable manner.
A storm had passed over that section of the country and nbout one und
a half Inches of rain had fallen. It
liad heen a dashing shower and hnd
packed the surface of the ground considerably. The grain was from four
to six inches high, ami Die farmer
had been advised to harrow the ground
to prevent evaporation, lle Bent his
hired man to do tho work, who hitched on to the harrow and drugged lt
illagorally across the Held of wheat,
and then around the outside of the
field some five or six times. Ho thon
became disgusted with the work because it appeared that ho was dragging out so much or the grain and reported the fact to tlio farmer who
ordered the work to he discontinued.
By he time tho grain liad headed
the marks of the burrowed sections
could be plainly seen. Tho place
where it had been drugged diagonally
across the Held produced grain at
least eight or ton Inches higher than
that on either side whloh had not
been harrowed, and along the edges
of the field the gralu was In a like
condition- The grain of tho field
that had not been touched by the
harrow was not to be compared with
the harrowed grain, cither tu appearance, size of plants or bends of grain.
The yield from the harrowed portion
was practically double that from the
unborrowed   portion.
It simply shows that the harrowing and loosening of the surface soil,
even though It did destroy some of
the plants, conserved the moisture and
benefited those plants that were left
In such a marked degree that it materially Increased the yield from that
field, and shows that this practice
could be employed to advantage by
all farmers—Dry Farming.

6O.C00' Unclaimed   War Medals
In two large strong rooms at Woolwich Dockyard, Woolwich, Eng., are
stored nearly 50,000 unclaimed
South African medals. Each ls engraved with the name of tho man
to whom it was awarded. These
men are not now with the colors, but
a staff of clerks and a department
armed with medal lists and regimental records are endeavoring to trace
them.
Many of this lost legion are Irregulars who flocked to tho British colors when war broke out, but who have
since become scattered ail over the
world. One young man, for Instance
after tho war, went prospecting In
the Interior. He turned up recently
in Capetown after an absence of nearly ten years and asked for his modal. It was given him. Similar demands from all pnris of the British
Kmpire are received nearly every
week.
Hundreds or medals have been reposing Jn regimental safes since 1004.
At the end of ten yenrs, according
to the King's regulations, thoso still
unclaimed will be broken up and the
silver debited to tha mint, Many
men have refused tlio medal on the
ground that it is 'loo cheap-' Three-
quarters of a million of the medals
wero struck—a fact which may have
boon lightly regarded.
Bnt these South African awards are
ttot, the only medals at Woolwich
awaiting claimants. There are 4,000
medals (with names engraved) for
the Zulu campaign of 1878-79, and also
seven medals presented by tha British South African Compnny for the
Matah le campaign. Claims for the
Crimean and Indian Mutiny medals
are still made. On an average the
India o*'lce give nwny twelve Mutiny
medals a yeur, while tho wflf office
bestows one Crimean medal a year
and replaces about ten lost medals.

PROGRESS  OF  CREMATION
Over Four Hundred Cremations at
Montreal
The British Medical journal ln a recent article on the progress of cremation gives figures showing the
growth of this method of disposing
of tbe dead In Europe.
The total number of cremations In
Great Britain during 11)11 was 1,023.
which shows an increase of 177 as
compared with 1010. Since the opening of the Working Crematorium ln
1885, there have been 9,08-1 cremations in Great Britain. At tbe .present time there are 13 crematoriums
In Germany, six of which started operations laat year. A law has been
recently passed permitting cremations
iu Prussia.
In Switzerland there are now ten
crematoriums, three of which belong
to the municipalities of Basel, Geneva
and Zurich. There were 1.210 cremations In Switzerland in 1910.
There are about forty crematoriums tn the United States, twenty-
eight in Italy, five iu France, four in
Sweden and Norway, two ln Russia,
oue ln Denmark, and one hi Montreal,
Canadu.
The beautiful crematorium In
Mount Royal cemetery nt Montreal
was opened In 1902 aud up to the
close of 1911, 401 cremations took
place there.

HOW BLOOD IS MADE.
The liquids tnd the digested food* in the alimentary cantl put through the
wall of the canal into Ihe blood. Thia proeeia is called absorption and takes place
chiefly from the imall intestine. After absorption the btood carries the food
through the body, and each cell taken from the blood the food it needs. A pur*
glyceric extract made from bloodroot, mandrake) stone, quern's root end golden
seal and sold by druggists for the past forty years under the name of Dr. Pierce's
Golden Medical Discovery, gives uniformly excellent results as a tooic to help
io the assimilation of the food and in the absorption by the blood of the food
it requires. I.radicate the poisons from the blood with thia alterative extract
which does net shrink the white blood corpuscles, because containing no alcohol or
