Guardian, trustee, master, owner of  four lovely girls who thought of him  with fear and awe���������it was an outrageous but an exhilarating idea. He  was conscious of a growing sense of I  authority, of a dignity of mastery and  firm proprietorship. Many men, he  thought to himself, might look upon  the whole matter as a stupendous  joke and acquit themselves of such an  office with an unworthy flippancy.  Thc look which lie turned upon Miss  Eiiiot was almost austere.  ''You needn't be afraiel," said he,  compressing his lips. "I'll lot 'em understand that there ain't: any nonsense  about me."

This interview did not fatigue Ruggles. On the contrary, it had a tonic  effect. He was possessed of a clear,  businesslike head for figures, and his  acument in seizing the details presented to him surprised both Pembroke and the Greek lawyer. The  latter had brought a list of Hamid  Pasha's holdings, which were widely  scattered and included sound securities in Russia, the Far East, Europe,  ins upstairs?

The remedy is Dr. Hamilton's l'ills. Marked benefit immediately  follows  thcir  use.  These famous pills loosen thc bowels and stop constipation; thcy act on  the liver aud kidneys, make them  strong and vigorous.  This ensures health aud purity for  the blood and consequently thc whole  systcm benefits.  No other medicine tones and braces  like Dr. Hamilton's Pills; they at  once cure biliousness, headache, dizziness, poor color, coated tongue, and  all diseases arising through _ fault of  the stomach kidneys, or liver; try  them.

"Now, in regard  to our plans, don't you think ifc might  bc a good idea for you to go to Paris,  as soon as you're able to travel, and  look up a house? Some big place  with a garden and surrounded by a  wall. Then you will need to buy a  motor-car���������a big limousine. You can  take Mustapha and the cook, Emilio.  As soon- as you get things settled, I  can follow with the girls and Sarah,  their old servant, and a maid, and  Selim, the dragoman. In that way we  shall be sure of having trusty arid devoted servants and ones who will not  gossip."  "That ain't a bad idea," said Ruggles. "I think I know of an old gentleman iu* Paris who wouldn't mind  giving mc some good advice���������a Mr.  Falconer. He's a retired English  clergyman and the salt of the earth.  Pembroke knows him well."  "The very person," said Miss Elliot. "No doubt hc may be able to  put you in touch with some Englishwoman oE good family and conncc- j  tions who wouid be willing to act as  the girls' social godmother���������for a sal-  ar3r,  of  course."  Rugglcs thought suddenly of Miss  Challand.  "I know thc very person, right  now," said he, "if she would be willing to do it."  During his convalescence Ruggles  had thought a good deal about Darthea and her aunt, and it seemed to  him   that  his  miraculous     change  of  Elderly people take cold easily. Unlike young folks, thcy recover slowly.  That is why so many people past  middle life  die  of pneumonia.  Cough Syrups seldom do much  good because they upset digestion.  Any doctor knows that a much more  effective treatment is "CATARRHOZONE," which heals and soothes the  irritated surfaces of the throat.  In using Catarrhozone you do not  take medicine into thc stomach���������you  simply breathe into the throat, nose  and lungs rich piney balsamic vapor,  so full of healing power that colds,  catarrh and bronchitis disappear almost instantly.  The germ-killing balsamic vapor  mixes with thc breath, descends  through the throat, down the bronchial tubes, and finally reaches the  deepest air cells iu the lungs. *\11  parts are soothed with rich, pure  medicinal essences, whereas with a  syrup thc affected parts could not be  reached and harm would result  through benumbing thc stomach with  drugs.  A Catarrhozone inhaler in your  pocket or purse enables you to stop  a cold with thc first sneeze. Large  size costs $1.00 and supplies treatment  for two months; small size, 50c : trial  size, 25c; all storekeepers and druggists, or The Catarrhozone Co., Kingston, Canada.  the United Kingdom,  Among the American investments in  the United States were stocks and  bonds of different railways, certain  industrials, and a considerable block  of the preferred stock of the Walk-  easy Shc> Company. Ruggles's eyes  lightened as hc looked at this item,  and affa' /s bega.n to seem more real  to him.  "I know all about that stuff," said  Ruggles to the benignant Mr. Kara-  popoulopoulous���������or sounds to that effect. "The company's, all right, but  darn poorly managed."  He looked at Pembroke and grinned. Pembroke roared, and Mr. K.,  etc., pushed back his shell-rimmed  spectacles and looked at them inquiringly from under his white bushy  brows. Hc* had always understood  that this security was a very sound  one.  Thc consultation left Ruggles with  his self-confidence marvelously ��������� restored. If the Turks wanted to grab  the palace, let them, grab it. What  could he do with it, anyhow? It had  always belonged to thc Turks, and  God knows they had been stripped  enough, poor fellows.

Rich, Red Blood to Regain  Health and Strength  Many children start school in excellent health, but after a short time  home work, examinations, hurried  meals and crowded school rooms  cause their blood to become weak  and thin, their nerves over wrought  ' and their color and spirits lost. It is  a great mistake to let matters drift  when boys and girls show symptoms  of nervousness or weak blood. They  are almost sure to fall victims of St.  Vitus dance, or drift into debility  that leads to other troubles. Regular meals outdoor exercise and plenty of sleep are necessary to combat  the nervous wear of school life. But  it is still more important that par-  ents^hould pay strict attention to  the school child's blood supply. Keep  this rich and red by giving Dr. Williams' Pink Pills according to directions, and the boy or girl will bej  sturdy and fit for school. The value '  of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills in cases  of this kind is shown by the statement of Mrs. Pearl G. Harrington,  Kingsville, Ont., who says: :sl have  often felt that I should write you  and let you know what Dr. Williams'  Fink Piiis did for me. At the age  of thirteen I jwas afflicted with St.  Vitus dance. The trouble became so  severe that I had to be taken from  school. I was given medical treatment, but it did not help me. in fact  I was steadily growing worse. Then  a friend advised my mother to give  me Dr. Williams' Pink Piiis, which  she did, with the happiest results, as  the "pills completely cured me and 1  was again able to take up my studies  and attend school. Again about three  years ago I was attacked with nervous prostration and once more took  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and after  using five boxes \va������^-fully restored.  I cannot praise these pills too highly, as I believe they will cure any  case of St. Vitus dance, or restore  anyone who is weak, nervous or run  down.  You can safely give Dr. Williams  Pink Pills to the most delicate^hild,  or take them yourself with equally  good results when you need a blood  tonic. These pills jare sold by, aU  dealers in medicine, or will be sent  by mail, post paid, at 50 cents a box.

This sum has  been paid by several farmers from the  eastern states for about 15,000 acres  of land in thc vicinity of Olds, about  75 miles north of Calgary.  This land has been used for the  fctst twenty ycars for ranch and grazing purposes, but it is one of the signs  ot the agricultural development of  Western Canada that the immense  cattle and horse ranches of olden days  are being gradually broken up aud  thc land turned to the raising of grain  auu   fie.;iu   Ciujia   ill   e-oiijuiiXiiuu       Willi  livestock and poultry.

'26  Some improvement  While 1918 is supposed to have  witnessed Canadians striving with  might aiid main to provide men  and other sinews of war, the Dominion blue book dealing with criminal statities for 1918 would  indicate that some considerable few  had a iittie spare time, and that  with his old time cunning Satan  found something for the aforesaid  ielle hands to do in more or less  satanic fashion. According to the  returns the mill of justice had bigger grists than ever to handle, the  showing in this detail was better  than in 1917 when there were 27,682  prosecutions of the sort. For the  3^ear the decrease in drunkenness  as revealed by the court records  was 25 per cent, as compared with  the year previous.

Greenwood had it 28 below zero  this month, and the ice harvest is now  in full swing. The frozen fluid is  about 18 inches thick.  Dnring the cold snap in the middle  of the month when Grand Forks had  it 25 below zero, it was necessary to  hire an extra stoker to keep the  schools in that city properly heated.

During the peak of the cold dip  this month the river at Golden went  on a rampage, flooding the streets and  store basements���������the latter to a depth  of three feet.  Although Penticton teachers got  salary raises of from $50 to $370 per  year the pedagogues are still dissatisfied, and five of them are -quitting at  the Christmas vacation.

Possibly the initial  turn for the better was the organiza-.  tion early in the year of" the United  Farmers of Canyon City with a membership that pretty well represents  every element in tbe community, and  which is headed by John Wood as president, with A. D. Pochin, secretary.  Whether it was entirely due to their  efforts or not it is noteworthy that  very shortly after tbe organization of  the U.F. things  began   to' take shape  ed with the organization of a literary  society thnt holds weekly meetings, at  which, debates and music are features.  tn������ the conduct of the society wisdom  is shown in  encouraging the younger  men and youths to participate in proceedings, and already some of the juniors have displayed unexpected talent  as debators.

Most important of these, of course,  was the fairly definite assurance that  the long-looked for high level bridge  over Goat River would be commenced  this year, which assurance has been  fulfilled. Among other problems that  the organization ti.ok a hand in getting aetiem on was the forming of the  Canyon Water Users Association  which was instrumental in having a  survey made of the available streams  in the district for the purpose of sun-  plying water both for irrigation and  domestic purposes over as considerable  area. As yet the engineer's report on  the scheme has not. cometo bend but  it is looked for any time now.

Early  in the year the ladies conferred together on the pressing need of a Sunday school, with the result that a  united Sunday school was at once inaugurated, and has been a marked success right from the start, with an attendance of at least 40 pupils and  teachers. Now that a, permanent pastor 'has been placed at Creston fortnightly church services are held, and  Rev. G.

No special  effort  is being  made due  to the  fact that with  the  aheads* assured development the committee is unable to decide what form  the   memorial   should   take.

To expedite construction  it is expected that  the   material   for the bridge  will be  shipped   in   from  the   coast in   such  shape as to ready to be put in place  immediately on arrival.    It is expected  the wrecked  bridge, which   went  out in the floods of, 1916, will be stripped and such of the material as can be  used will be utilized in the new structure.    Estimates   of   the cost of the  new  bridge ready  for use run from  $12,000 to ������18,000.   Tt is hoped  when  the wrecked bridge is dismantled that  provision will be made to preserve the  site as a permanent picnic spot.

This  trip  comment was offered on recent spee  ches by Hon. T. A. Crerar, in which  he deprecated the formation and encouragement of distinctly class  movements in Canada, and offered  words of advice and warning to people generally, and the farmers in particular, not to be led astray by new  and untried men who were now espousing their cause since it had become popular and strong, but who  held aloof from it in the days of  atress and'hard fighting when it was  act so generally acclaimed.  This week we would direct attention to another notable speech, and  one of equal timeliness, delivered by  J. A. Maharg, president of the Saskatchewan Grain Growers' Association. Addressing a district Grain  Growers'  convention  at  Regina,   Mr.  Faint and Oizzv Spells.  Weakness and  Shortness of Breath.

Of   particular   timeliness,   however,  was Mr.  Maharg's reference to    tbe'rundown  ar.d  worn   out   wli  can easily be extended to California,  and a choice of a sea voyage, or train  journey via the wondrcms Shasta  Route, is offered.

Endorsing the  yiews expressed by Mr. Crerar, thc  president of the Saskatchewan Grain  Growers declared that if the new political party should develop into a  class political organization, its usefulness would soon cease. Therefore, the educational efforts of the  ���������parent association must bc made to  permeate through all classes. He  ������dded: "Support was being obtained  from among all classes, and that support must continue to be merited in  order to hold it."  The eagerness of those who had  been active in the old political part-  iej to join the new movement was  commented on by Mr. Maharg, who  declared  that  if  that eagerness     was  been reSson to be critical of them  in years past, the time had come  when we would have to weld ourselves and all those who had come  to our shores from other countries  into one homogeneous whole if we  were to prosper as a nation.  Discussing thc national debt, Mr.  Maharg said it amounted to approximately two billion dollars, and if, by  any chance, legislation should be  passed   which   would   tend   to   drive  they  have  helped me wonderfully as  1   have   improved  very  much."

It was,  he said, only by developing our natural resources that we could hope io  liquidate our indebtedness, and we  could not, therefore, afford to drive  away the labor that would enable us  to do so. In this connection reference was made to railway extension  work, for which large appropriations  had been made, but which was retarded owing to lack of labor. "We  need the foreigner who has come to  make his home with us," said Mr.  Maharg, and it is our duty to educate him in the exercise of the franchise.

When meal time arrives they are drawn up in a line before little heaps of food. Each animal's breakfast includes ten pounds  of raw rice done up in five two-pound  packages.
