A large proportion of the duels In
France cud without ljlo.iUf.hcil. When
the Offense Is uot very' serious it Is
agreed beforehand tliat the words of
command shall  be given so rapidly
that the duelists will uot have time
to take -good aim. Sometimes thrco
shuts are exchanged without a hit. and
then the seconds siep in und���"honor
is salislicd." At the word "rire!" the
pistol is raised Instantly, anil it must
lie discharged not Inter than the word
"three." so the speed witli wblch these
words are given regulates the time in
which it is possible lo take aim. Therefore the speed with Which they nre

depending upou the seriousness of the
duel. The words are timed with a

it going?   Who's got it?   Why does it take twenty-five
cents to do the buying work a nickel used to do?   If somebody's gathering a golden harvest, who is it and why isn't
his monopoly investigated?
There's a collection of questions that will take a little
consideration. The facts to go on are extremely simple
and surprisingly few in number.
To start with, there isn't as much money about now
as there used to be. The man who, a year ago, had plenty
of cash in his pocket and more in the bank, today is hard
up.   The fellow who was a capitalist a few short cmonths
back, with a couple of big automobiles in his garage *-nd^:%;:^;\^^s b^.
other appearances of prosperity, now is walking up the
hill to lunch because he cannot afford to ride on the street
cars.   There's not one house being built now for twenty-
five that were under construction a little while ago.
There's a loose screw somewhere and somebody knows
where it is located, but the general public are not in on the
secret.  A while back the financiers of Europe said money
was tight on account of the Balkan war.   Well, the Japan-1 ���Ifa. MJ*e n���. "because T iZ

rise in the price of beef. Muff afoout  the    Ulster    movement."
The fact of the whole matter is that the men at the S wheekshl|?1he�� wtVL1 af* of
monev chests are not telling the truth, whether because determination that reasonably sug-
they think it would do harm if the general public were ^"ced .?t�� book.6

There are two things certain.   One is that the rate prominent ciuhs, was yesterday in the
of wages hasn't risen nearly so fast as the scale of living MtnaPii
cost and the other is that the banks have millions lying';
idle in their vaults.   The banks may deny it, or they may
not   What they say doesn't make any difference, for the
eighty  bents u  minute,  which givesIsor of a pardon signed personally by
time for titkiug accurate aim.  A speed  President Woodrow Wilson and Atlor-
the Btatement that through tliis legis-
lation millions of dollars have been
sent out of Britain by those who have
the means rather than submit to what
they consider to be unfair and quite
disproportionate taxation, lie added,
with a smile: "It is a cood thins for
Canada, for we naturally look to thia
wonderful country thnt offers some
very excellent and satisfactory Investments." il" Intimated lhat he
himself had fairly large Investments
I in Canada upon which lie does not
I draw, allowing his returns to remain

terprlFcs in which he Is interested or
highly assessed in Britain is allowed
to i't main untouched.
Canada, he said, heard only of the
one point of view, the "protection to
the worklngman." He contended that
the worklngman was paying more In
taxation today proportionately than
he did before the legislation was passed. Assuming l.loyd Oeorge'8 arguments to he correct, many millions not
of 140 bents a minute allows no time

Summarising a report on forest pests
In British Columbia by J. M. Swalne,
of tbe Dominion department of agriculture, Conservation says:
The stately forest giants of British
Columbia are exposed tot iie attacks
of various minute but dangerous foes,
which are receiving much attention
at preBent from the division of entomology of the Dominion department of
agriculture and the provincial forest
branch. The enemies In question are,
chiefly, cettain scolytid beetles of the
genus Dendoctotuis. commonly called
bark beetles. They burrow under the
bark of the trees and there deposit
their eggs, which hatch into grubs that
eat the sappy layer between the wood
and the bark, driving tunnels ln all
directions, and finally so interfering
wltll the circulation of the sap as to
cause death to the tree. An area affected by them will be indicated by a
clump of withered trees, known as
"reel tops," conspicuous among the
surrounding evergreens. Another
danger signal is tubes of pitch surmounting holeB through the bark, bored by the adult insects.
The bark beetle attacks many kinds
of trees. The western white or mountain pine, I'inuB monticola. is attack
ed by Dendroctonus montieolae, which
is giving great trouble In Washlng-
to nand Oregon, as well as ln British
Columbia A large body of fine timber has been killed In the Sugar lake
and Mabel lake regions in the Shuswap valley, B. C, and outbreaks

Seattle. Nov. 27.���Acting under di-
reet Instructions from i'ostrnusti-r Edgar Battle and the postofflce department at Washington, D. ''., postal
clerks tn the Seattle postofflce today
removed from the mails 800 fancy
Thanksgiving post cards bearing tin-
eel on their face In addition to the
no-- 'age and illustration. Many of
the cards have no wrapping whatever,
wjile others were enclosed in envelopes of tissue paper, which were
equally at fault.
Two clerks In the postal service received blood poisoning In the government service during the holiday season last year from handling tinselled
cards, and as a result stringent orders
have gone forth prohibiting the mailing of such wlt.iout proper wrapper,
aud requiring tlie pasting of the stamp
is used. The postofflce contends it is
too much labor to remove each tinselled card from its wrapper to cancel
lhe stomp, and requires them to be
put on the exterior.
It It is expected that several thousand similar cards will be seized by
lhe government before New Year'B
day unless these regulations are followed.

ONES knows more about motor

know,"  said  a man  to his
friend.   "He has obtained his
knowledge chiefly from motor car advertisements,   and   the   catalogues   and  booklets
circulated through them."
" All I know about photography," declared a well-

advertise cameras, plates, papers and films."
Advertisements have been

poor men have been schooled
Much of what the average individual knows concerning personal and domestic hygiene, modern
office methods, books and authors, electricity, precious stones, investments, and almost everything else,
he has learned from advertisements.
Advertisements have stimulated our intelligence,
added enormously to our knowledge, and given us
aspirations which have raised us to higher levels of
thinking and living. Advertising is indeed "The
