London, June IB. -The new method
for the treatment of tuberculosis discovered by the young Swiss lawyer, M.
Henri Spahlinger, a report of whicli
was presented to the French Academy
of Medicine on April 28, anil most favorably received by that body, Is now
bein girled at four London hospitals
-St. George's, the Victoria l'ark, the
French hospital and the Metropolitan.!
Inquiries have elicited this much,
that while the treatment is admittedly
still In the experimental stage, and
does not allow as yet of any absolute
definite pronouncement, its prospects,
judging from the present results, are
decidedly encouraging.
The method, it may be well to recall,
consists in a sequence of intra-niuscu-
lar injections containing both an antigen and ferments, the effects of the
latter being to dissolve the wax envelope of the bacillus and thereby to
render it a more easy prey to the
white corpuscles and ferments of the
blood. For the more advanced and
febrile cases additional intra-muscular
and intravenous injections are made of
ferments in special combinations with
lipoids; while the strength andamount
I of the antigens employed are also
1 carefully graduated according to the
' extent and character of the disease
and the condition of the patient whose
health is the object of a more general
and subsidiary therapeutic treatment.
Effect of Injections.
At first the injections tend to produce a rather depressing reaction, accompanied by a higher temparture and
increased inflammation, but the inflammatory symptoms soon disappear,
and the physical signs dry up. Although the temperature may continue
to rise for a brief period following the
injections, yet, at a later stage, it

Of course, the applications for
treatment, both private and at the hospitals, have been numerous. But the
number of patients accepted has been
limited by material circumstances. All
private, applications from paying patients have been rejected on principle,
the treatment resting on a purely scientific and philanthropic basis. In view
of the small amount of the preparation that is at present available from
M. Sp-ihlinger's private laboratory, not
a particle of it will be diverted from

Decisive Cases.
Among the sufferers a selection has

KITCHENER SAVES
'     OfflCER'S IK
One if Most Brilliant Men in Ottoman
Army Nearly Dies for Stirring*
Up Trouble.
I'a'.-o. Egypt. June IB.���Abdul Aziz,
one of the most brilliant officers in
the Ottoman army, has just been saved
from death after condemnation by a
court martial. Representations in his
behalf were made to Sultan Mehmeii
V. by l^ord Kitchener, the Iiritish clip-
Imn-itle agent In Egypt.
Abdul Aziz is a cousin of Znlficar
Pasha, governor of Cairo, and is regarded as a hero by million's of Arabs
in Egypt, Tripoli and Arabia. He was
condemned to capital punishment on
charges relating to his conduct In the
war with Italy. Included ill tlle
charges was one of having accepted
money from the Italians. Another ac-
CUSatlon was that Abdul Aziz caused
the trouble between the Arabs of Cy-
renalca and the Turks with the object
(it founding an Arab caliphate with
himself  as  ruler of  the  country.
The question of dealing with the immense Mohammedan population in India and Egypt has always been a problem of great difficulty for (ireat Hrit-
.*iin and the most accomplished diplomacy has had to be employed to prevent .in uprlt'lng which might have
disastrous effects on British prestige.
Spectacular  Career.
Abdul Aziz All Hey lias had a spectacular military career. He was first
in bis class on graduating from the
Ottoman military academy. Kor tun
years he fnuR*it the Bulgarian "committee" engaged In arousing Macedonia to revolt aftitinst the Turks, and
���.-.in- nne of the founders of the com-
initt'-e, of union and progress in Mace-
dun;.'..
On the fall of Abdul Humid, in
hrir.ting about which Abdul Aziz had
taken a prominent part, he worked
heart und soul with the Young Turks,
lie was in several battles with the
Greek "committees" along the Oreco-
Turkish border and led an expedition
against tbe Albanians. He served for
nearly   a  year   under   Izzet   Pasha  in

PILLS
the campaign in the Yemen and after
his return to Constantinople he became professor of tactics In the military academy and was a colonel on tin-
general  staff.
At the outbreak of the Halo-Turkish
war Abdul Aziz was sent to Cyrenaica
in command of a regiment of regular
troops and displayed  such   vigor and
military enius that he was placed In
j command of the division of Arab-Turk-
i ish troops formed within a short time.
He was the Ottoman    commander at
I Henghasi for nine months, and at Der-
j ni  for a similar period,  leading    his
troops at the battle of Sidi-Garboa.
1 Abdul's  Arrest.
Abdul was suddenly recalled by the
minister of war in March last. He was
arrested on his arrival in Constantinople and placed under a guard in
tlie mi-| stry of war. where he occu-
pled the quarters of the commander of'
the garrison, uncle of Enver I'asha,!
the new minister of war. He was al-
lowed to receive visits from personal
friends there.
Abdul Aziz made, vigorous protesta-
tions of innocence, pointing to his pri-1
vate life and brilliant military record
to bear ou his assertions. He accused
envious Young Turk leaders of having
formulated false charges against him.
The accusations agaiiist the    commander  were:     Exciting    civil    war'
among the Arabs and causing discord j
; between   the  Turks  and   the  Benussl |
tribesmen, accepting bribes from the:
| Italian  Invaders, misappropriation    of'
: funds sent to him for the expenses of!
tlle campaign and plotting to establish
an Arab caliphate.   The trial by court-1
martial    began on  March 15 and was
absolutely secret. It was presided over
by Oeneral Kebzy I'asha.
When the news of the arrest of Abdul Aziz reached Egypt, where he was
Immensely popular, the indignation of
the Arabs knew no bounds. The native
press protested against the treatment
meted out to "El Masri," a.s Abdul
Aziz is known among the Arabs, by the
Young Turk clique at Constantinople,
and predicted an open rupture between ,
Egypt and Turkey.
Scarcely had the sentence been made!
public  when  Iiritish  diplomacy  began
to move.    Affidavits in defence of Abdul Aziz were submitted to Lord Kitch-
lener at Cairo, and although the British
I agent announced that it was difficult
for him to interfere, as Abdul Aziz is
jan Ottoman subject, it is known that
i an appeal for clemency was made on
I England's part to the Sultan.    The re-
I suit of this plea is seen in the following note communicated to the press
i of Constantinople on  April  1(1:
"An imperial irade commutes provi-
! Slonal'/  the sentence of death on Ab-
f I dill  Aziz  Bey to fifteen  years' Imprisonment in a fortress."

RADIUM Will NOT

Expert  Chemist  Says   His  Simplified
Process  V/ill   Reduce Cost

tm\t mrrwbart.   In bo-M. 25 cants.
I'aris, June 15, It ts not generally
known that one of the pictures ln the
Salon des Artistes Kiancais has a
story attached to a very Interesting
character.
It is called "A History el..-.son," and
represents a father showing his children a map of mutilated Turkey. The
painter is Abdul Mejid. a son of the
Sultan Abdul Aziz, who preceded upon
the throne Of Turkey the present ex-
Sultan Abdul Hamid. The picture has
thus  a direct  personal   bearing  upon
New York. June 16.���Curt Bredt, a
young cehmist, son of Dr. I'aul Bredt,
a well known chemist of Cologne, is to
leave New York in a few days, accompanied by William J. McEvoy, for the
"radium district" of i'tah. Mr. Bredt
says he has discovered a process for
simplifying the reduction of radium
bromide from camotlte, and he Is carrying a field laboratory to make a test
of the land belonging to Mr. McEvoy
and containing cornotites. Mr. McEvoy and Mr. Bredt also will prospect
for uranium ores on government land
iu southeastern Utah.
Miniature Reduction Plant.
The mlnature reduction plant Mr.
Bredt will take with him is about the
size of an office desk. He believes
that lie can produce commercial radium, or radium bromide, in about one-
sixth of the. time and at one-third to
one-half of the present cost. It Is the
Intention of Mr. Bredt and his business associates, so the former announces, to present to one of the leading hospitals ln New York 160 acres
of carnotite land, reasonably capable
of yielding from one to three grains
of  the   radium   bromide.
"Before I  left  Bonn, a  man  at  the
University of Heidelberg had  discovered that radium bromide could be extracted  by  a  sort of smelting,"  said
Mr.  Bredt  yesterday, "instead of  the
ordinary process of solutions and crystallizations.     The   reason   the   latter
process  takes  so  long  is  that   there
have  to  be  between   100  and   200  of
these  steps  before   the  radium     bromide   is  obtained.     This     Heidelberg
j chemist found that if you take a mixture of radium  sulphate, barium  sul-
I phate,  and  calcium   hydrur,   you  can
I smelt    it.      The     barium     sulphate
' changes   to   a   sulphae   and   becomes
soluble, but the radium remains such.
Finds Cheap  Substitute.
"While this simplified the extraction
! of radium bromide, it was a very t-x-
i pensive process, because of the cost of
| calcium hydrur, The main advantage
i ol my process is that 1 have found a
| substitute for the calcium hydrur
I which is very cheap. I estimate that
not more than one-fifth of the labor
I required in a radium extraction plant
I of the present type will be required,
in one such as I have in mind.
"1   expect  to   spend   at  least  seven
' weeks in Utah working out what I
| have already succeeded in demonstrating on a small scale. I am confident
\ that 1 shall be able to produce radium
i at considerably less cost than by the
j present methods."
Mr.  McEvoy said that for ten years
the exportation of carnotite had been
! going on  from  Utah  to  France    and
c.ermany, and that for some years it
j was   given   out  that   it   was   used   in
! staining  glass.
Acting as agents    of    foreign con-
I cerns. many individuals had taken up
; claims of government land  on  which
j carnotite had been found, and it was
generally   given  out  that     the    only
source of radium was the pitchblende
| mines    at   Joachimsthal    in    Austria,
| when the greater part of it came orig-
! inally from  Utah and  Colorado.    The
i fact that of the world's production of
1 nine  grains  of  radium   last  year  six
grams   was  credited   to   the     United
States   indicated.   In     Mr.     McEvoy's
opinion, that the radium-producing industry had awakened in this country
and would grow always more important.
BRAVE   ENOUGH  TO   SING
ONLY WHEN DRUNK
London, June 15. Some very outspoken and amusing comments on
the musical defects of the English people were made at Norwich by the Kev.
Colin Campbell in the course of an
address on "Some Aspects of the Anglican Chant."    He said:
English people never show their
shyness  so  much  as   when   they  are
1 singing, and the only time au Engli.h-
; man is brave In singing is when he is
intoxicated.    A common    mistake    In
I churches is giving out the chant. They
I could imagine the organist was trying
j to catch a train.    Another fault was
bad fingeriug.    Why should the organ
aUays accompany  the  I'salm?    Was
j it a law of the  Medes and Persians?
| The  faults of  village  organists  were
curable, and more systematic instruction   should   be   organized   for   them.
If they had choir festivals for choirs,
why should they not have organ festivals for organists?
Village choirs had no genius for
speech accent. The time had come
when tiie clergy should get rid of the
old cathedral I'salter and choose in
its place one of the new cathedral
I'salters. The old I'salter, with its
one accent, was responsible for the
jerky, jumbling singing of the Psalms
in our churches. It should be got rid
of. especialy iu those little country-
parishes where they proudly said, "Oh,
yes, we go right through the book."

"On the Doorstep of Desire"
THE merchant of today
is not satisfied to merely let  his   advertising
invite people   to   his  store.
Toe right kind of an advertisement
virtually takes the merchant's goods
to the home���places them on the doorstep of the reader's desire aud says:
"Mrs, Housewife, won't you take me
Thus good advertising for a retail
store does especially important work
In bad weather-the advertisement
talks on days too bad for Mrs. Housewife   to  go  "down   town."
Most merchants recognize this, and
depend on their advertising to make
sales, when the store window, by reason of adverse weather, doesn't get a
chance to talk.
And just as there are winter days so
stormy that the dally newspaper is the
only real point of contact between
Mrs. Housewife and the shopping district, so are there summer days so
sultry that "down town" Ib out of the
question.
But is it ever too hot for the daily
newspaper to get a hearing? Is there
a single day in the whole summer that
the merchant could not, with the proper kind of advertisement, place his
goods on the doorstep of Mrs. Housewife's desire?

Behind
Al Enterprise, the National Oil & Gas Co., have an
oil well. Drilled in the very best location in the entire
Northwest. Over $40,000 have been spent in the development of this property. According to the reports of the
most eminent geologists and oil experts, oil should exist
here in large commercial quantities. This well is just
33 miles from New Westminster on the Great Northern
railroad.
The equipment is of the very best. No better is being
used in the entire Northwest.
At this well you will find a double shift of men working day and night; working to strike oil just as soon as
possible. The drill is now working in the shale that invariably forms the capping of a large oil deposit.
The men behind this company are men of the highest
standing and business integrity. Men who so firmly believe in this well that they have placed $40,000.00 of their
money into it. These men will stand the very closest investigation.

is now being sold simply to meet the current expense of
drilling.   Just as soon as oil is struck they will be withdrawn from the market.   Oil may be struck   any   day.
Think what this means.   Are you going to throw away
the opportunity of a lifetime?   These shares are now selling for 50 cents; in a very few days they will raise to

tomorrow, hut could not redeem at
Bight lie dill not think the provincial government would give them that
power.   Thev must remember that in
��� St.   Paul's   ease   most   of   their   bonds
were   for   a   short   time,   from   seven
.to  tin  year.-.    The council did  try  to
I sell some $1H0 bond issue:! and a few
were bought   $6000 he thought
The clerk    One party  took $5000.
Alderman  Dodd asked  whether that
Sinking fund must remain iu the bank
fur thirty years, and was it not  possl
ble  to  redeem   the  bonds   before   the
thirty years were up.
The mayor It i-- put In the bank
for a specific purpose, to redeem particular bonds.
Al.crman   Dodd's  Plan.
Alderman Dodd suggested that they
could issue the local improvement
bonds in $10 denominations. These
local improvement bonds would bring
in an annual revenue and as that came
in it could be put into the general
debenture sinking fund and the money
would thus be available to redeem
these small bonds at sight. This revenue would replace the money taken
out of the general sinking fund.
The mayor referred to a case where
the government refused them the power.
Alderman Dodd- ll is a serious matter   worth)   of   serious   consideration.
St. Paul city was at first down in the
mouth and doubted the success of the
scheme   when   it   issued   these   small
bonds.   Now they do not wait for $1000
they go after the small amounts.  Lett
the city  take  tlle  matter  up with   the I
government and Bee if they  could  not]
get tlie necessary power.
I'he mayor There is no question of j
our being favorable to issuing $10 i
bonds and redeeming them at any time
if we have the power. If they had j
tlie power to do as suggested he:
thought it a good proposition, but considered they should give their own in-,
vestors tlie same interest the bonds j
fetched ou  the London  market.
The discussion then closed after making arrangements ior Thursday's conference.

Ithingn? Well, that's my fix. Almost
everybody I meet asks -me something

about it. and I want to forget it and
do -something more useful." So declared Archdeacon Hudson Stuck, who

Queensland Hush Has a Vocabulary
Which In All Ita Ow..
The Hush vocabulary of Queensland is as unintelligible to tbe stranger as bas.-hallese to cricket and golf
enthusiasts. The "sundowner," says
a writer In T. P.'s Weekly, is so called because be so arranges bis daily
itinerary that he reaches a "station"
or homestead just about sundown, so
lhat be may be invited to remain for
the night in the men's hut, that is,
the quarters set apart for the employes on the "run," or pastoral
holding. "Humping bluey" and
"waltzing Matilda" are terms which
signify carrying your swag and tbe
inevitable billycan or quart-pot in
which to boil water for tea. A
"bunipy" is a rudely-built but with
a framework of timber, and a cover- I
ing of bark or corrugated galvanized |
ir' -, what tbe American calls a ]
"aback."   The jungle Is "scrub."
A stampede of cattle ofT camp ��t ,
night Is a "rush." A "brumby" is
a wild horse. A "cocky" Is a selector or settler wilh a small holding,
say, 100 or 200 acres of land. "In-
Side" means country approximate to
the coast, more or less settled. "Tbe
Never-never" Is the wide, unpopular
tract of the Far West, out at tlie back
o' sunset. The crocodile is erroneous- |
ly termed an alligator, and tbe lace
monitor an Iguana corrupted into go-
anna. A blazed track 13 one marked
by tlie bark, or hark and sap, chlp-
j��-d off trees or saplings at intrvals
of a few *)jrds. "Squatter" is th?
term used to signify the sheep or cattle pastorulist who owns a large area.
"Stock routes" are tbe roads reserved by the Crown for the drover who,
when crossing a sheep or cattle station, is allowed half a mile in width
in which to graze his traveling sheep,
cattle or horses. "VValer" is the term
given to Australian horses exported
to India or Manila. Tbe "cowboy" of
America and the stockman of Australia are synonymous.
A   "hatter"   Is  a  man  who  works
alone  and   lives  a  solitary  life.      A
"fosslcker"   is   a  digger  who  turns
over ground that has been previously
worked,  in the hope of finding precious metal that has been overlooked.
An   "outlaw" may r-ean a horse that
Is untamable, and .   sheep is a "jum-
buk."    New arrivals   from   overseas
are  "new chums"  and one of these
who works on a shee-   or cattle station  to  gain  experienc*!,  for    which
privilege he sometimes pays a premium,  is a    "jackeroo."   We  have the
plain turkey and  the   rerun turkey,
neither of which  are  turkeys.      An
illicit grog shop is a "sly grog shanty."  The "bush" ls country on which
the natural vegetation still remains
and is synonymous with unpopulated
country, irrespective of its vegetation.
The "ringer"  of a  shearing shed  If
! the  man  who  has shorn the   great-
j est number of sheep at that shed dur-
! Ing the season.   A "buckboard" is a
I four-wheeled vehicle without springs.
I and  is  adapted   for   rough  country.
I There are a few terms in this voca-
1 bulary  tbat are  known  to Canadian
I readers,   but  the  unknown ones are
emphatically descriptive.
Queen Wrote Anonymously.
The biography of the fourth Earl
of Clarendon, a famous Cabinet Minister of Queen Victoria's reign, which
has just been published in London by
Sir Herbert Maxwell, reveals that
Queen Victoria once wrote an anonymous letter to The London Times.
This was in April, 1S64. after the
London tradesmen had been making
one of their periodical attacks
against the Queen's seclusion, which,
they said, was ruining trade.
The Queen had abandoned all court
drawing rooms, as well as most of the
small entertainments of the society-
season. Her friends among the nobility followed her example, and the
dressmakers, florists, caterers, and
all shopkeepers in general suffered
from lack of business.
The letter of the Queen was written entirely by her own hand, and she
gave it personally to her secretary,
Gen. Grey, who took lt to the office
of Tlie Times and put it into the
hands of Its editor, Mr. Delane.
The letter was a strong defence by
tlie Queen of her retirement, which
she explained was enforced upon her
by the cares of state as well as by
her own mourning for (lie Prince
Consort, and it Ctated that the Queen
had not the slightest intention of resuming ber sociul duties or bringing
back the old custom of the drawing
room receptions.
The letter was si. n;d "Anonyma,"
and the Idea prevails that the editor
of The Times himself did not know
that the Queen wrote tlle letter, af
no mention is made of it in his own
biography.
Scott Journal-* on Exhibition,
The original journals of Sir Robert
Scott during bis south polar expedition have been placed in the British
Museum by Lady Scott. Hy order of
the trustees they were placed on view
on the second anniversary of Scott's
arrival at the South Pole. They are
to remain on view for an Indefinite
period.
The journals are three small, pen
cll-wrltten books which Scott carried
with blm to tbe pole and which were
found on his dead body by tbe
searching party in November, 1912.
At the end of the last of these Is
the "Message to the Public," which
made sp deep and lasting an impression ou tbe heart of tbe nation.
lrving's Rise-
Sir Henry Irving first acted on the
etage when be was nineteen. He got
$:"> a week for a minor part in "lUrhe-
lieu" and made a failure of it. Fifteen years later he did Matbias in

l��-  given
one of tin- must Interesting public
men in France nt the present time Ial
Maurice Harres.    it is not that he fig-1
ures in the present crisis, or concerns
himself much with administrations. He
i.s rather a philosopher than a member oi  the chamber, though he Bits j
there as the representative of the mar-^
ket women of I'aris.    Om-  might sup- j
pose  that  tho  market  women,  about
the   roughest   specimens  of  their   sex
to   be   found   anywhere,   would   have :
chosen  a   blunt,  crude   man  to  voice!
their opinions in the deputies.   On the
contrary,   they   clioso   Harres.     He   ig
an  aristocrat,  a  man  of  independent!
means and high culture.    Hi. constit- ���
uents cannot  read or  understand  tiie;
|philosophy  he  lays down.    Rut   they
calculate   shrewdly  that   as  he  is  a;
wealthy man he will not seek to become  wealthy as their representative.
Bo devoted are they to him that not
long ago. when he left  I'aris to pay a
visit to Jerusalem, the market women
of the city  filled  a  cart  with flowers
and sent them to his villa as a mark i
cf their good  will.
The Man ot the Hour.
There is no country in the world in j
whicli the publicist has the influence
he  exerts   in   Prance,   and     probably
there is no country in the world where
[the   average   writing   in   newspapers
and magazines is of such a high char- {
actor.     To  be  brilliant   in   France  is j
nothing.     There   are   too   many   bril- j
liant   people.    To be brilliant and  to i
lm   very   sane   is  no commoner  there
than here, and it happens that Harres
is both.   That is why he is recognized
as  tin- leader of young  France. Ster-;
ling   Hellig.  a   well   informed     French!
correspondent of a number of Ameri-,
caii   newspapers,  says  that  the  most
discussed  picture  in  this  year's salon
is a portrait study of Harres. entitled I
"Barrea  Beefore Toledo."    The mosti
striking book of the season is Harres'|
"Great  Pity of the Churches."   This;
lemarkable   man   is   just   fifty   years;
old, and for several years past he has
been   a   leader   in   France.     The  odd j
tiling is that he is a leader backwards.
When-  he   is  going.   Hellig  says,    no-!
body   knows,  not  c\c\\   Barres,  but  it |
is backwards,
"The Cult of the Ego.''
When  Harres began  to  write  some I
77, or 7.U years ago France was  under S
tlie influence of two great men, Renan \
and Talne.    It was the reign of science
and   of   facts.     Hut   Harres   at     least
waa nol   under the illusion that there ;
is   nothing   in   life   but   science   and i
fact*.     He   wrote   "Fight   Days   With ;
.\l    Kenan."  in  Which  be  imitated  and
parodied   the   style  of  that  author  so j
admirably, and so impertinently pushed   hig   well-khown   principles    to   lu-1
dicrous limits, that in- became Immediately   famous.     His  next   work  was j
called   "Tlie   Free   Man."   and   it,   too.
made a  marked success.    The general !
idea of these two books was to teach !
us   t'.iat   though   the   world   has   only |
facts and science we at least have our- j
selves   left,     lt   was  Barres     who   in-
Vented   the   phrase  the   "The  Cult   of j
the Ego," whicli is as well known in i
Knglish   and   iu   Fn-nih,   though     the I
author  of  it  is  not,    Now   it  is  said !
lhat Harres regrets these popular sue-;
cesses ul   iiis youth, aud  w ishes that
people   might  forget  them.     In  order!
to make them forget he has produced;
other and more important works.
Apostle for the Home Town.
Of  late   Harres  has  been   preaching
the   beauties   and   advantages   of   the
Home Town,    lie Is the sort of man j
who    ought    to    have    invented  "Old
Hoys'"  reunions,    If    he    didn't.      ln
France  they  call  him   a   Regionalist.
His ifiea is t'.iat every man is born to
a home in  some part  of the country,
and that he should not cut loose from
it  without    some    very strong reason.
Just by writing very clearly and beautifully he has, little by little, persuaded  young men who are  making their
way in the world that society cannot
be all the time reorganizing  -as if each
generation came out nf foundling asylum;, with nothing behind them, obliged to decide everything new for themselves.    He shows that they ought to
carry on  the  work  begun  by  their  fa- I
thets.    They   will  do  better  by  stay-:

A  Champion   of  the  Churches.
In his latest book Harres applies
hi;, rout idea to religion, or at least
to the chinches. Why should these
old and beautiful churches be destroyed, or permitted to lapse Into
ruins? lie has nothing to say particularly against the modern policy of
the French government, which has
been bo harsh In its treatment of the
Roman Catholic religion, but he protests mi behalf of the beautiful old
Churches. So far-reaching was the
affect of this appeal that now every
church in France more than a hundred years old is being preserved as
sacredly as though it were Westmin
ster Aiiin > In Vendome there is a
beautiful Did church, which the extremely seciiin, municipal council of
tlie city turned Into what is called ,i
lavabo. Commenting upon this Harres
said: "Ah! That is your idea Of the
divine architecture of your fathers, is
it? Squatters of Vendome!" This
epithet lias made Vendome so odlus
thai families are moving out and real
estate values have fallen, Barres
has found a response throughout
France to his appeal for the things
iii.it tho last generation beld sacred,
and If lie lives long enough he prom-
Isi - tu change the whole current of
civilization _.i.��I modernism in France.

THE NEW WESTMINSTER NEWS.
Summer Advertising
The most valuable asset in advertising is age. It is something which cannot be rushed or bunched.' It has no
overnight competition.   The new advertiser can't date
back.
Advertising cannot take a vacation without a loss.
The cumulated values of previous months or years immediately begin to shrink or evaporate. It will invariably
cost more to make good the shrinkage than to omit the
vacation.
Good advertising is a continuous performance before
the same audience. No better definition was ever invented.   It admits of no exceptions or variations.
Buyers are not so firmly attached to buying traditions during the Summer months as at other seasons.
They go about more, enjoy more freedom, are interested more in variety. The new advertiser finds it
easier to break in; the old advertiser finds it necessary
to be more persistent and watchful. The province of
advertising is to attract new customers, as well as to
hold old ones, and the vacation season, more than any
other, is the season of changes; the season, more than
any other, when the advertiser can least afford to
permit his goods and his service to be forgotten. The
trifling purchase of July or August is often the forerunner of a much larger purchase in October or
November.
Use the New Westminster News during
the Summer Months and Keep
A
Your Trade Lively.

Muntreal,  June   15.
���emulate Julius  Caesar
Moderns    can
and be proof
against the ravages of typhoid [ever,
according-  to   Dr.   Richard  Monahan.
Caesar's constitution   was so  strong
that   the  germs  of  the  deadly  camp
titsezn? had no mote effect upon him
than the innocent little germs in the
a/r today have on  all of us.
Buf moderns cannot attain that, im-
inuni'y without the use of anti-toxin.
/)r. Monahan adds that the too free
iiBe of antitoxin means, too, the lowering of the human system's bulwark  against  other  diseasn.
Further, he adds that the discovery of use of a typhoid antitoxin does
not tree a municipality of its responsibility to furnish a pure water supply.
Smallpox Eradicated.
"Smallpox has been practically eradicated because the world has been
so thoroughly vaccinated against the
disease that today the blood of the
ordinary individual contains an antitoxin which protects him; and 1 be-
lieve the same result can be achieved
in the ease of typhiod," Dr. Richard
Monahan declared.
"The possibility <j��t- fclje successful
elimination of the ifftherto elusive
typhiod bacillus by inoculation (In
-io far as it may cause a fatal disease is concerned), 'ought not*'to
mean that we shall not continue to |
iK'nd every effort in tiie direction of I
a pun water supply, however. In a i
country like Canada, where practi- I
t-ally every stream from the Atlantic
to the Pacific is infected, it is amazing io contemplate what has been j
done In such centres as Berlin, Mun-
ich and Vienna. In Munich the !
clinician views a typhoid patient
with the saini' trepidation as one.
would regard a yellow fever case
here In Vienna it is one of the pleas-
ures of life to see the water, (the
source of which is iu the mountains
man}   miles away)  gurgle forth.
"As  tor   Koine,   the  water  supplied j
from   the Tivoli  hills  is aa  pure  as
the   Vestal   Virgins of antiquity;   and
I bave  been   informed  by  an   Italian
naval   i urgeon     that,     the   purity   of
���.qua Uotnae is such that one can use
II ni     delicate     surgical     operations
i Ithoul  previous sterilization.
Practice Dangerous.
"Moreover, a too absolute depend-
���.un' on antitoxins incurs what maj
prove to be a serious drawback to
their continued use. namely, a decrease in one's natural resisting
power of disease. It is hot unreasonable to suppose that the si reams of
ancient Gaul, for instance, were, owing to the presence of numerous
legions of soldiers subjected to pol-
mum. and would have afforded a
habitat for the developmenl of typhoid   bacilli.
���Unquestionably, Julius Caesar living a camp life iu the midst of thousands of his warriors, was exposed
to infection, but the typhoid bacillus
was no more dangerous fur him than
the millions of Innocent bacilli whicli
constantly inhabit us, tor the constitution of the mighty Julian must have
bi i .i  beyond suspicion.
