EDWARD W. BICKLE
FRIDAY.   SEPTEMBER   30
AVOID A SWELLED HEAD
A SWELLED head haa caused many a man's
downfall. The most fundamental of all
virtues is humility. The thing that stands
in the way of our learning most things that we
ought to know is our conceit. No man can acquire knowledge of value unless he is humble-
minded and teachable.
A swelled head also stands in the way of our
esteem by our fellows. Self-conceit is the principal barrier between man and man. Whenever
we see it we dislike it. In the case of most sue
cessful men we have found a willingness to credit
their success to good fortune, and most of them
are extremely loath to admit that they have
merited all they have won. In the case of those
who are unsuccessful, self-conceit makes them
bitter. They do not think they have gotten their
desserts, but the humble-minded man fancies
that whatever has come to him in the way of bad
fortune was coming to him and he is not inclined
to be bitter.
It will also be found that humility underlies all
virtues. When we are in love the thing that
makes us lovable is our humility. In fact, great
love always brings in its train a feeling of un-
worthiness. We do not see why so rare and
beautiful a thing should have happened to us.
But, someone will say, self-conceit makes a
man courageous. He ought to have a good opinion of himself. We believe that courage rests
upon a firmer basis if it is founded upon humility
than if it is based upon egotism. In the latter
case its fall is usually disastrous. Humility is
the essence of self-control. If we do not think of
ourselves more highly than we ought to, we can
more easily control ourselves and those passions
which lead others to destruction can be restrained in us.
It is said that the door of Heaven is very low.
We can but crawl through. Those whose heads
are held too high cannot gain entrance. The
beauty of humility is that it underlies all our
right opinion of ourselves. It is intellectual
honesty. It is candor in dealing with our own
mistakes.
Go stand under the sky on a clear night and
gaze upward into that vast extent of worlds un
known. Go stand at the intersection of two of
the busiest thoroughfares of any great city and
watch the ceaseless flow of the human tide. Then
you will realize that you are but a speck in the
universe and that you are surrounded by forces
to which you can but best adapt yourself. You
cannot always control them.
PULL OFF TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD
THE spectacle of two men furnishing amusement for the greatest crowd ever assembled
at a prize fight, and incidentally receiving
independent fortunes for pummelling each other,
now marks the crest of the mounting wave of
commercialized sport. No sane man can argue
that this thing is right. There is no thoughtful
man who does not see a menace in this unfair
condition. How many men can make a million
dollars in an entire lifetime of hard work and
intelligent service to humanity? Yet the time
has come when we reward a pugilist with such
a sum for a few moments of effort. It is not
right, nor fair, nor just. But it is another sign
of indifferent times. We have become sleek and
lazy and are just drifting along in the easy
channel that is carrying us all to God knows
where. We do not take the trouble to vote. We
avoid public service. The lad who can drive a
golf ball or a baseball farther than the other fellow gets the applause and the reward. While the
boy who seeks to cultivate his mind can barely
make both ends meet. In vain students of human
nature are warning us of approaching danger.
In vain the church bells call us to meditation and
the thoughts of higher things. We rush about
in little metal wagons propelled by gasoline, we
throng the floors of dance halls to the insane
howling of saxaphones, we gather in great crowds
at the race tracks, the ball parks and the prize
ring and let the prophets' warning fall on deaf
ears. You alone cannot stem this rushing tide,
but you can control your own life and live a sane
and healthful existence. If you do you will miss
some of the mad pleasures of your friends, but
the time will surely come when you can smile in
peace while they are beating at the walls of their
mistakes. It is a pretty.smart thing just at this
time to "let the rest of the world go by."

THE SONG THE
TEA KETTLE SINGS
The song the tea kettle sings has
as much to do with the proper preparation of tea as does the tea itself.
according to Kahel Yamamoto, tho
oldest tea dealer in Tokio.
"Any kettle will not do to make hot
water for tea," he said.   "An iron tea

kettle, preferably one that has been
used for the same purpose for centuries, is suitable, lt should be placed
over a charcoal lire, and heated until
the kettle begins to sing. And It
should sing a certain tune. According
to the Buddhist priest Ylesal, who
t lived in the thirteenth century, the
! song ot* the kettle ready for tea should
' be like the sound of wind passing
I through pine trees.
"The temperature of the water
: should be just enough to permit the
finger to slip into it without burning.
It Is hest to pour water into a cooler
first, as otherwise the delicate flavor
of the lea Is likely to be lost. ,1 '
"The tea master must be particular
even about tiie kind of charcoal used
for the fire. The water 'would be
spoiled it it  were heated over a fire
use wood to make the fires over which I right classification; don'i misname
to heat water. But such a fire will I him and contribute to his vanity and
never make tea for a connoisseur.    j conceit; lie is neither a humorist nor
;i   wit.  but  a  cruel torment.
"With the hot water at the propei
temperature, the master, sprinkles in
a few leaves of tea. giving nil of them
time lo be steeped. When it has become strong enough, il is ready to
drink. But connoisseurs never 'drink'
tea. they merely sip it."
Of course the Japanese use neither
cream nor sugar.

Opportunity is to be provided early
next January for from 100 to 200
Canadian farmers to go overseas at
low cost, for a study at close range
of the great marketing centres of the
old land, with a special study of cooperative marketing In Denmark, by
the organization of a "Farmers' .Marketing Tour" now being undertaken
by the Agricultural Department of the
Canadian National Railways.
The marketing tour, conceived hy
Dr. W. J. Black, Director of Colonization, Agriculture and Natural Resources of the Canadian National
Hallways, and approved hy the leading agriculturalists of Canada, Is
primarily a plan to advance the cause
ot wider markets for Canadian products and of better marketing methods, by giving the Canadian farmer
opportunity for personal contact with
the great marketing centres. The
Old Country ls the ultimate market
for the Canadian farmer, and it Is
to the discriminating taste of this
market he must cater. An Intimate
understanding of what is desired by
this market, and of the conditions
under which Canadian products are
handled, obviously would be of Immense value to the farmer on this
side of the water.
Pluns for tlie tour are now sufficiently advanced at the Montreal
headquarters of the Canadian National Railways to give some Indication
of the wide scope of the tour and Its
peculiar attractiveness. The tour
will be of some six weeks' duration,
leaving Halifax January 8th next, and
providing a full thirty days in Britain und Donmark, the cost of the
tour being so low aB iu be wllhln (he
reach of the farmer.
The tour is being designed to provide the following:
An opportunity to study at first
hand:
First—Methods of handling Canadian products in the great marketing
centres of the old land.
Second—Opportunities for the extension of markets for our own products.
Third—What is demanded by the
Old World markets ln the way of
quality of products, methods of packing and shipping, etc.
Fourth—Great breeding establishments and historic herds.
Fifth—The most efficient co-operative marketing systems In the world.
An opportunity to see famous historic spots and sights of the old land
and to meet outstanding leaders In
agriculture and other spheres of life.
Plans for the tour provide for
landing at Liverpool, where a day
will be spent in seeing the great
Mersey docks and harbor facilities,
grain elevators and grain exchange-,
cattle markets, etc.
From Liverpool, the tour will proceed by a selected route through
England and Scotland, visiting outstanding marketing centres and famous livestock farms, with full opportunity for study of every possible
angle of agriculture in general and
marketing in particular. Considerable time will be spent ill and around
London, with studies of such places
as the Sniithl'ield cattle market and
the famous Covent Garden fruit and
produce market. Billingsgate fish
market. Hnrrod's. the King's farm a!
Windsor. Carver's farm at Cambridge
and so forth. At Glasgow, there are
the Merkeland wharves, where live
Canadian cattle are handled and sold
by auction, either for slaughtering or
for finishing on Old Country feed lots.

of the points to he covered in the
thirty day tour, whicli will include a
week spent in Denmark, viewing at
close range various co-operative organizations, and seeing interesting
sights in this delightful land.
