SATURDAY.  APRIL  10th,  1919
People who don't mind their own
business firing more misery into families, soeieties and churches than
everything else. They turn thc pleasant peaceful stream of good will into
ground where angels would even fear
to -tread. Now. minding one's own
business is tho very best remedy for
the itching ears that are never satis-
tied with hearing and the busy tongue
that hurries to speak cruel words.
Minding your own business will turn
your attention to self, and you will
forget to watch so closely the shortcomings of others; it will make peaceful homes, happy neighbors, and quiet
consciences; anil you will be able to
realize and more fully comprehend
the truth spoken In holy writ: "Blessed are the Peacemakers."

A young man had sauntered carelessly nito the court room of one of
New York's superior courts, eyed the
judge through his glasses, and then
taken a survey of all the attorneys.
Then lie walked up to the bar and
poured out a glass of water.
The judge, who was nervous and
testy, bad observed the young man,
and was not pleased with his appearance. The youth was just raising the
glass to his lips when the judge
"That water, sir, is for attorneys
anil other officers of the court!"
Tlie glass dropped from the young
man's hand; he started violently,
turned red, then placed the glass on
the tabic, and walked out of the court.
The judge chuckled.
Half an hour later the young man
entered the court room again with a
mil of parchment in his hand. The
judge glared at him savagely, but the
young man never flinched. Filially,
there was a lull in the proceedings,
and he addressed the court:
"Your honor!"
"What is it" sir?"
"I wish to submit to the court my
certificate of admission to practise in
the supreme court and all other courts
of this state," and he passed the
parchment to the clerk.
"Well, what of that?" growled the

At last a "modus Vivendi" has boen
found whereby the heroic people ot
Montenegro will be united with Jugoslavia. This news is good and pleasing. Very little, however, has been
said during this war about the race
that fought the Crescent for centuries
and has been guarding the shores of
the Adriatic for decades, from Mount
Lvocen, now again in possession of
thc brave  Montenegrins.
The great Gladstone said long ago,
that the people of Montenegro had
proved their right to existence by
their heroic exploits and lights for
civilization. In order to appreciate
the heroism of * Montenegrins, It Is
necessary to know the country, because there are no roads to speak of,
and yet at any time the "melting pot"
was hi danger tho heroic soldiers of
.Montenegro fought the foe, any foe,
that had the intention to Invade thc
little country and thus endanger the
Balkan peninsular as a whole.
Soon after Serbia'B emancipation,
Montenegro also became a princpial-
lty, as a matter of fact, under the rule
of her native Prince-Bishops of the
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
This nymnlainous country had preserved a certain amount of independence, even during the era of the Ottoman domination, while maintaining a
constant warfare against the Turks
iu the eighteenth century. But the
true emancipation began In the nineteenth century, when the worthy contemporary of Kara-Gorge, Bishop
Peter I. Petrovitch (died 1830), stoutly
resisted all Turkish attacks upon Mon
tenegrin independence. The last Bishop, Prince Peter II., (died 1851), also
of the house of Petrovitch, was the
first Montenegrin ruler who succeeded by diplomacy in obtaining recognition for Montenegro as an independent state, and also in organizing the
internal affairs of the country, which
was at that time plunged into a state
of anarchy by the mutual dissensions
of unruly tribes. His successor, Danilo,
proclaimed himself Prince in 1851.
The present King Nicolas Njegos
ascended the throne in 1860. During
his reign this little principality has
increased greatly in prestige. In 1876
and 1878 Montenegro, in company
with Serbia, fought Turkey. The outcome of It was that Montenegro's
territory was enlarged aud she obtained access to the sea.
Montenegro became Independent
"de jure" in 1875, and in 1910 waa
finally raised to the rank of a kingdom.
When, in 1912, the sound of the war
bugle from the Balkans reached this
city and province, many of these brave
Montenegrins paid their fare from
here to Montenegro to save their beloved country. Thousands of them
passed through the city of Vancouver
in 1912, and very few could be seen in
measure less than six feet. They all
went, as they said, "to save Gospodara

A small signal lamp flashes in front of the telephone operator when you work your receiver hook
slowly up and down to attract her attention. A quick
rattling of the hook does not operate the lamp.
The filament of an incandescent light will glow for

the switch two turns, rapidly, and the light seems to

The London Cinema Sensation
This is not an ordinary motion picture—it is the
greatest Cinema of the Day, carrying a message from
the Brave Boys who spent four long and weary years
in the trenches, at times under terrific bombardment,
but always fighting with grim determination that final
victory might be assured for the Allies.
"The Better 'Ole," is a different story of the great
War—thre are no thrilling battle scenes, no hand-to-
hand fightng, no artillery firing—you see the daily
routine life of the lads who fought so gallantly for
Old Bill, Bert and Alf, the three famous cartoon
characters of Captain Bruce Bairnsfather, are famous
the world over in "The Better 'Ole," and they are
brought to life in the most wonderful motion picture of
the war.
The secret of the story's wonderful fascination is
its close and true analysis of the spirit which animates
the men in the trenches, that spirit which keeps them
cheerful under conditions almost indescribable. The
army is fujl of Old Bills, Berts and Alfs, with their
sorrows and pleasures—pleasures that make the very
word seem a mockery—but true reflections of what the
daily life of the boys has been "Over There." "The
Better 'Ole" will do more than raise a laugh, and dim
the eyes with tears at the pathos so piquantly drawn.
It will make the people at home understand as never
before why the Great War was fought to a bitter finish,
and how much is due to the Berts and Alfs and Old
Bills who stood as a living wall of protection for the
people at home.
