The meeting was addressed;  by B. S. Schofield of the St. John's  Ambulance Society, who gave a most  interesting talk on First Aid and  Home Nursing courses.  During his talk he pointed out that,  the end and aim of the society was to.  give first aid to the injured, to nurse  the sick and prevent disease. Mr?-  Schofield touched particularly on the>;  home nursing course, which he thon-;  ght might be most applicable to /.������  meeting of women, though many of  tbem might like to take up first aid  also. He said that in some places during the recent epidemic doctors had  been greatly helped by yoluuteer  nurses who had been trained in many  cases only a fortnight in  the first ele-  ���������������n*������nt*.H rvf niipfiino1      *-\*ex   te&VilSET of teiE-5   g, ������������������.��������� mx- ��������� ...^,     xrm     x,       x���������  pratures and  pulse rates, noting posture, respiration, etc.  One doctor was not sufficient in epi--  demies in a district such as this which  covers such a wide territory, unless he.  can have the help of trained volunteers, who at present are very difficult  to obtain.   To overcome thi-**' difficulty  it is necessary to organize in the slack  season���������not.  when   illness   is in   our  midst.    In  some  part  of   Vancouver  Island the St. John's   Ambluance  is  well established, and is of great assistance to the doctors.    In Duncan the |  Red Cross has established a district  nurse, who is conducting a course in  home nursing.    In many cases a class  in Home Hygiene is also conducted  with yery good effect, as many diseases are preventable if precautions are  taken���������tuberculosis for one.   "Women  must to take up this woi-k of education,  and we should try to establish a dis-  ���������   trict nurse'jbere; ~ The request for one.  either of the Victoria Order of Nurses,  or a district nurse and public health  nursing centre must come from the  women of Creston, and the best way  is   through   the   Women's  Institute.  Mr, Sqhofleld kindly handed the president a list of useful medicines   and  their uses but owing to a shortage of  space the list cannot be published until our nest issue.    At ihe close of his  address Mr.-Schofield wastendered a  very  hearty vote of fthariks for his  timely talk.    *���������*������������������>.��������� r:PZZpZ  ���������  v; Some discussion followed, and letters  were read en the subject.pf, the public  ������������������health   nursing  scheme,; and that of  supplying clothing jt6 tu^heedy presidents in some of the rural, districts of  Southern   Alberta,���������;who���������vifti-e   still   in  very urgent need, \ If *ji^y   member  has anything thai*;*'tbey**^;cahV: spare,  which they think might be-useful, will  they kindly leave th-ematjtjhe- library  any Thursday afternoon; pL?Z''?  -.'

At the congregational meeting of  Christ Church on Tuesday night it  was decided by those favoring the  calling of a resident clergyman to  have Rev. F. Yolland of Fernie come  here for a conference on the matter as  the majority favored him for the position provided a satisfactory arrangement can be made to provide him  with equipment for working the outlying points in the Valley,  - Rey. M. C. Campbell, Presbyterian  pastor at Kaslo, was an enforced visitor at Creston from Wednesday to  Thursday afternoon. En route home  from Cranbrook he got off the train  to soeak  with some   friends   at  the  Almost $40,000  Loaned Locally  Landing run the fore.part of the week,  and Mate Annette took advantage-of | station, and the discussion either be  came   so exciting or the scenery so  being down this w.-tyto spend Monday  with Creston friends*  t -trysxxr.       ������������������������������������ I m-f      t er  ������0^,-.-.--. *--.-;  *������ r\\- ' 51    +.**������ ������>f> srx  *mr-%xx     \x*~ *x-r      i~ f\    d~4-*C7  Xi ���������������������������������������������������������������������'*��������������� nf.

The city council of  Glasgow, Scotland, has purchased  a Traffic truck for general utility  work in and around the city. Traffic trucks are ably reprenonted in  this territory by the Northwestern  Motor Co., Ltd. of Liverpool, England, who report this sale to be  doubly ' significant because it not  only demonstrates tho supremacy  of American made trucks over  thoi-iO of British and continental  manufacture, but also establishes  Traffic as the peer of American  trucks In the opinion of the city  council of Glasgow.  Glascmw is the third city in sizo  and, in importance in the British  Isles. It has a population of ono  million inhabitants. The city council in eonr-ddei-eil one of the most  progressive  in tho country, at the  Httlliu    irilnc    ������i>:i(l<e.eit1i>l^    full   VulU-J  for motiey expended*.

A special meeting of the Co-Operative Fruit Growers' Association was  held in the schoolhouse on Wednesday evening.  Still another hew settler has located  at Wynndel, a Mr. McLeod who has  taken a place aboye Paul Ofner's, and  is busy clearing land.  Mre. W. G. Laing and Mr. J. P.  Brooke were guests of honor at a  kitchen shower at the schoolhouse on  Saturday night. A large number of  friends assembled and a fine assortment of kitchenware was in evidence.  The recipients would take this opportunity to thank all for their kindness  and good wishes.  On Saturday, March 27th, at Nelson,  Miss llogua Hagen and Mr. Elias Uri  were quitely married, by Rev, T. Me-  Clin took. The bridesmaid was Miss  Mario Hiigen, while the groom was  supprrted by Mr. Sparkes.

Mine host Bell  of the Creston' Hotel told him all  about reclamation and the many  other attractions and commercial advantages of Creston during his stay  here, and taking it all round the  pulpiteer quite fully enjoyed himself.  Twenty-four   cases  of an  excellent  brand Scotch whiskey  is at present  under surveillance by the local police.  It came in two lots to a local resident  last   week,  but   as   the   same   party  about two weeks Hgo h?e.rl also taken  delivery of another two dozen cases of  the   same stuff the guardians of the  law naturally surmised the  would-be  recipient   was   stocking   up   heavier  than  was needful for medicinal pur-  noses, and promptly clapped the necessary Tein  on  the  last   shipment.   If  within thirty days the consignee fails  to demonstrate that he needs these  last 288 bottles the wet goods will be  confiscated and the attorney-general  seems in a fair way to become possessed of about $1200: worth of real hard  stuff���������as prices are at present.  it wiii oe tne best of good news to  our readers to hear that at lastlthe  provincial and dominion authoritiesr���������  the latter through the Soldier Settlement Hoard���������have at last come to ap  arrangement regarding the handling  of Lister and other provincial settlement areas, and on terms which  would seem to make it safe to predict  that there should be little or no trouble for the soldier workers on these  areas getting the expected Loans as  soon as their allotments are ready for  the soldier settlement board valuators  to make an intelligent appraisal;  This is the information brought by  Capt. Patterson, a director of the  Soldier Settlement- Board, who was  here on Saturday on an official visit,  and after being at the coast attending  a conference dealing with matters  covering these settlement areas in B.C.

Portland and Monteseno, Wash., having heen suiumond to the latter place  owing to thV death of his brother.

Prospective land buyers have been  numerous in this section the past two  weeks, but so far we can not trace of  any deals being closed.  The Chambers boys have just taken-  the contract for clearing a considerable area on the John Wood ranch,  and are starting work immediately,  Mrs. C.\ Blair left, a few days ago on  an extended visit to the old home in  England, Mr. Blair going as far as  Winnipeg with her. She will probably be away until early fall.  Miss Colthurst, who has been here  for a few months on a visit to her  sistei-, Mrs. Pochin, has also left for  home in Londog, England, and will be  with Mrs. Blair on her trip across the  Atlantic.

John Johnson, who has been the  longest and Heyeietsfc adult flu sufferer  in this section, is now able to bc  around again, and is rapidly gutting  hufk to his oldtime noil'.  Provincial enjrineor Ramsay of Nelson, and bridge superintendent Kil-  patrick of Revelstoke, were here on  Tue-.'day iuiipeet.ing the- work nn the  high level bridge, and went away  quite Hiitiflled with the progress being  made.

Rowbury,  stated that his inspection had satisfied  him that Lister was a good settlement  proposition. Undoubtedly .the land  was very desirable, and certainly the  location of it was all that could be  desired, and when it came to passing  on loans for the different settlers the  yaliiators would be instructed t-o  make their appraisals with due regard  to the special conditions that exist  there and a careful study of the men's  qualifications;  Asked as to the accurateness of a  cfnfa-mi->-nf.   vtrt   f-.Vio   nroeQ   cittvtAx4-xrnex    **nrr\  that the Soldier Settlement Board  was discontinuing the purchase of improved places for returned men, Capt.  Patterson stated that impression was  erroneous* The hoard's policy was  still to" make loans on either improved  or unimproved properties. As to how  long, the  board, would   continue. in  b-^ihe-'-&-h&p^  was created by act of parliament and  until parliament repealed the act-the  settlement board would continue to  operate.  As to the work done locally the  captain spoke in highest terms of the  services of R. Sinclair Smith, the  board's appraiser for the Kootenay's.  At the board's head office few, if any,  of the loans that Mr. Smith had re-,  commended had been refused, while  his business-like statements on the  many valuations he had made had  considerably simplified the work of  the higher-ups in determining whether  or not a loan should be made.  As demonstrating the great care  that is taken in making loans Capt.  Patterson pointed out that eyery  applicant for a loan bad to receive the  approval of four sets of officials: Thc  local valuator, the qualifications committee, the advisory loan board, and  finally the finance committee, whose  duty it was to keep informed on how  the big financial institutions wore  handling louns of this nutuif- in tlio  various- localities. The procsss will  not only indicate the care that is  taken but will also explain the. length  of time that sometimes elapses before  loans which the local valuator <t������i������,  proves are finally issued.

Prior to the war many Canadians had  got into the habit of referring to Canada as a nation, but when it came  down to a definition of our legal and  international status it had to be confessed that we were still a colony, a  dependency of Great Britain.. The  Great War has finally changed Canada's position in  the  world.       Great  i ing learned it, it became Britain's  greatest  asset  in  -successful  colonial  ; administration and world diplomacy.  Canadians will learn the necessity of  j tolerance in dealing with great international problems, and by the application of a greater tolerance at home  many of the prejudices which now  retard Canadian development will fade  away.  In the past Canadians have been  too self-centred. Lacking that close  intercourse with other nations and  peoples, which our new international  status will force upon us, we have  failed to appreciate many of the fine  qualities of races whom we have  brushed aside as "foreigners"; we  have failed to learn from them many  things which would have added richness and variety and strength to the  life of Canada; we have been too intent upon the practical problems of  Canada and the reaching of solutions  by ourselves without regard to the history of other nations, and have thus  frequently made mistakes which could  easily and ought to have been avoided by a consideration of the solution  of similar problems  elsewhere.  The introduction of the larger issues of world politics into the political discussions and life in Canada will  not serve to weaken  our interest  in,  With  EGYPTIAN LINIMENT  For Sale by all Dealers ���������  Oouglas & Company.

Auld, Deputy Minister of Agriculture for Saskatchewan, is authority for the statement that creamery  butter production^ in Saskatchewan  has increased during the past year  from 30 to 35 per cent., as compared  with the year 1918. The increase in  1918 over thc year 1917 amounted to  50 per cent.  Saskatchewan is fast coming to the  front as a dairy, producer, but even  more~rapid development is looked for  in the future.

Canada has established a great mercantile marine, with ships plying to  ports in all parts of the world, and  within a year or two the number of  ships flying the Canadian flag will be  two or three times greater thau today. Canada's international trade and  commerce is expanding by leaps and  bounds. A new national consciousness is at work which is thc outgrowth of the war and our new national status and dignity.  If this new consciousness is devei-  tion in a world League of Nations, a  League wherein Canada has equal  standing and equal responsibilities  with all the sovereign nations of the  world. Canada's right to such a status may be questioned, and recognition delayed, by the United States  Senate, but it is accepted and approved \>v all other nations and the United States will either have to accept  it or remain outside the League of  Nations.

The basis suggested under  these conditions is a fleet unit, which  it is considered that war experience  has shown, should comprise in the  case of Canada:  One battle cruiser, %*vo light cruisers, six destroyers, four submarines,  and two fleet mine -sweepers.  The naval force suggested as adequate, purely for the protection of  Canada's ports, comprised:  Three light cruisers, one flotilla  leader, twelve torpedo craft, eight  submarines, with one parent ship.

C  Minister    of  Naval Service, indicate  what this eminent authority on   naval  affairs   considers  are   Canada's naval  requirements if she is to play her part  in  empire affairs, and also if she is  to protect her own shores.    The report, which is not a lengthy one, after  mentioning the subjects on which advice  was   requested  by  the  Government of Canada, deals with the question of a Canadian navy under a number of specific heads.       It mentions  that naval assistance in the shape of  cruisers, destroyers  and other small  vessels  rendered  during  the  last   18  ���������months   of   the   war  by   the   Unifed  States  was  of great help in the institution  of thc  system  for protecting trade by convoy, and that without this    help    Great Britain    would  only have been able to* use convoys  to a sufficient extent to meet the submarine menace by abandoning some  of her overseas expeditions.  Four suggestions ranging from a  $25,000,000 fleet to one costing $5,-  ,000,000 are made by Admiral Jellicoe  in his report. Although he does not  ���������state specifically what would be best  of the fleets recommended for Canada  as given above, hc includes a table in  his report which shows the cost of  thc various vessels mentioned. He  placed thc barrel cruiser at four million pounds, or about $20,000,000, and  that of the light cruiser at approximately $2,500,000. He emphasises the  importance of air work in thc navy,  stating that any navy to bc "complete  must possess its proper complement  of aircraft.  of the building, dating from FeDruary  3, 1916, up to the amount of $4,000,-  000, and seven per cent, on the cost  in excess up to $1,000,000, it being  understood and agreed that they are  I not to receive any thing ir^ excess of  the cost of $5,000,000.

Nature intended women to be  strong, healthy and happy as the day  is long, instead of being sick and  wretched. But how can any woman  be healthy and happy when the whole  nervous system is unstrung. ^ The  trouble is thcy pay more attention to  their social and household duties than  thcy do to their health. Is itany  wonder then that they become irritable and nervous, havc hot flushes,  faint and dizzy spells, smothering and  sinking spells, become weak and nervous, and everything in life becomes  dark and gloomy.

S2-*>0 to U.S. points.  (J. P. Hayes, Editor and Owner,  CRESTON,  B.C., FRIDAY, APR.   2  -SoMsrs' ~WeBsa*WB*i-jj.B  it is decided that the memorial  might better take the form of the  hospital or other building monies  should be returned those who  have paid up so that they may recontribute on a scale in due proportion both to their means, as  well as the increased cost that is  inevitable if either a library, hospital or other building is ultimately decided upon.  Something akin to the inspiration that prompted the saying that  '''Satan finds work for idle hands  to do" would doubtless create a  similar maxim to the effect that  necessity will find tasks for idle  public money to accomplish. And  as locally demonstrating that  there is some truth to the latter  observation one has only to recall  the uses that have, within the past  two months, been found for the  $1200 or $1500 that was last year  guaranteed for a soldiers' memorial but whieh, owing to unfor-  seeri circumstances, has not yet  been put to work.  The two latest suggestions that  have been put forward are to use  the money either for a public library building or in part payment  for a cottage hospital to be erected at Creston. As a paid-up contributor to the memorial fund,  and having exercised our vote and  influence about a year ago in favor of a building, "naturally The  Review is heartily in favor of using the money in some direction  that will benefit the living as well  as paying fitting tribute to the  fallen.  M&ain ihe Hospttai  For a time it looked as if Major  ���������n tr      ii  JDUt  ^y*������+T>-������-iC<-<riCt-VV������       rn       "h"h "1Q  ca������*Lixw.ioiciiJj-������^.    -Ill    Llllfe  spect does not cause us to overlook the fact that on the memorial vote the standing was at least  three to one ��������� both numerically  and in point of money subscribed  ���������in favor of a monument, and we  doubt very much if the subject  were re-opened that the decision  in favor of a tombstone would be  reversed; there is little or no upkeep charge to a granite monument, but with a building running expense is a hardy annual  that must be reckoned with.  Now that the flu ban has been  iiited and people are feeling in  the humor to discuss public matters a meeting of the guarantors  of the memorial fund should be  held to decide what action shall  be taken. If a monument is still  wanted it should be proceeded  with on the best possible site.   If  Maiianciame s    exceuent    suggestion regarding Creston's need in  the hospital line was doomed to \  be   "born  to   blush  unseen   and  waste its sweetness on the Valley  air,"  but word  comes  that the  matter is not to be  allowed to  drop.    At the Women's Institute  meeting  on  Thursday  the ladies  very   thoroughly    discussed   the  matter and decided to vigorously  co-operate in any move that is  made to  establish   an   an   institution in our midst, and they are  calling on the board   of  trade  to  take   the   preliminary   steps   to  launch the project. .-  ���������������  With the hospital scheme we  believe most all are in full sympathy and it is hoped now that it  has been brought to the public at-;  tention that it will be given the  very serious and practical jprelim-  iilary'consideration it merits. And  first and foremost is the detail of  where is the money coming from  ���������not only to build but also to  maintain such an institution in a  community where patronage is  bound to be limited for the first  year of two of its existence.  At the price of materials and  labor today we believe we are  well within the mark in saying  that even the modest little hospital that some favor starting with  could not be built and furnished  complete ready for business under $6000. There will possibly be  a government grant that will take  care of a third of this. With the  hospital opened it will be needful to have at least a competent  nurse in charge with such other  help as hospitals require, along  with fuel, light, water, medical  and surgical supplies, and the essentials to stock the hospital  larder.  $3000 per annum will not be  too high an estimate for all running expenses, toward which the  government  may  contribute   an-  SAVE AND PREPARE  Success generally comes to those who go looking for it, and the man with a substantia!

In other words  for the first year Creston will require a matter of say $5000 of  local money to handle its hospital  ���������less whatever fees are collected.  This is the way we figure it out  roughtly. Whether your estimate  is higher or lower, the all important question is can we raise the  money, and keep on raising a  couple of thousand each year to  keep the institution operating in  proper working order.  Between now and the possible  formal introduction of the project let us not allow the sentimental or humanitarian aspects of  the matter entirely obscure the  equally essential and more difficult financial side of this question.

The Von Hertz-  felds were orthodox Jews, enormously rich and highly respected. Yakub,  Koxana's suitor, was thirty years of  age and a man of great charm and  intelligence. He had been presented  by an attache of the British Embassy.  "Of course," said Miss Challand,  "she would have to embrace his religion. JL������o you think Hamid Pasha  would have objected?"  "No," Ruggles answered. "AH that  Hamid Pasha objected to was an all-  round infidel. What docs Roxana  think about it?"  "Nothing has been said to Roxan;.,"  Miss Challand answered. "She is a  very odd girl, Mr. Ruggles. If *t  weren't for the clever things she  sometimes says, one might almost  think her dull. The others are tremendously interested in their new  lives, and as merry as schoolgirls on  a lark. But Roxana goes sometimes  the whole day without speaking s.  word. Yet she seems happy,-and is  always extremely agreeable. She must  see that Baron von Hertzfeld admires  her trcrrfendously, and she is always  very nice to him, but then she is nice  to everybody. It is a constant source  of wonder to me to see how quickly  these girls have adapted themselves  to our customs. One would think  that they were convent-bred."  "I guess Hamid Pasha had something of this sort planned for them  for a long time," Ruggles answered,  and sort of trained them for it. Now,  about    Koxana.

Such people knock repeatedly at the door of  Romance, and then, when Romance  comes, she comes in sober black with  an umbrella and galoshes to enter  their lives under the name of Smith  or Brown.  Had Ruggles in his ramblings a-  wheel possessed the imagination to  have conceived such events as had  happened him during the last few  months, the romance of the fantasy  would have dazzled him. But because  they had actually occurred, poor Romance got no credit for them. The  God of Things as They Are has scant  time to \vaste on his impractical  though charming brother, the God of  Things as They Might Be.  (To Bc Continued.)

The litigation  (a polite -nlirase  J>  for  anything pertaining to equity in the  Ottoman Empire) over the estate of  Hamid Pasha was tiresome in the extreme, the object being apparently so  io delay anything approaching a decision as to wear out the patience of  the foreign claimant and thus to save  -for tlie Empire the ten per cent, of  the whole which Ruggles might otherwise have expected eventually to receive.  In this the wily Turk met with thc  sneocs.- which usually has attended  his policy of procrastination. Ruggles, after several interviews with high  officials, onc being no less a person  than th*; Grand Vizier himself, and  appearing several times before a tribunal for the investigation cf his  claims as an heir, was politely informed that the case would be tried according to the regular procedure of  the* Ottoman law and that every justice V,*0li'd  that   notiiin  P^.-broi-..  when ������������������>:���������.���������-���������_  wtiv.'-; ar ti'.  xeiiijV'*''. ::j  gr'W '.���������ad -LLV-?.:���������-?

"I would not like it without you,"  she answered, "because I love you.  Can't you feel me loving you, belov-,  ed?" Her voice was like the first  sweet, low, tentative note of a nightingale before its song; a prelude and  a promise of the liquid notes to follow.  Ruggles could scarcely believe that  he had heard aright; he was bewildered and confused. What did the girl  mean?

For Roxana's Oriental viewpoint of  their relative positions was impossible to Ruggles. It was inconceivable to his Western mind. He saw  himself as her guardian and protector and saddled with thc responsibility of her future we'fare, himself but  a humble person from the middle  class, essentially practical and possessed of some executive ability, but  as far removed from Romance as a  shoehorn.

When    he himself  spoke,  the  girls became  quiet.  Roxana   seldom   volunteered   a   remark, although at first she had asked  a   good   many   questions,   usually   of  Miss Challand, for whom she seemed  to have  formed  an    affection.      Her  manner to  Miss  Elliot  was  formally  polite   and   to   Darthea   friendly   and  admiring.    A  musical    artist  herself.  Roxana appreciated    Darthea's    skill  with her brush, and nothing pleased  her   more   than   to  be   asked   to   the  studio to sit and watch Darthea at her  work.    This did not often happen, as  Darthea did not like to have her attention distracted when  at her easel.  The evenings were usually spent in  music and bridge, of which game Miss  Challand   was  inordinately  fond,  and  whieh thc girls had acquired as young  ducks  learn  to  swim.    Roxana alone  took no interest  in  cards, preferring  to amuse herself at the piano or harp  while  the  others  were  at  the  bridge  table.    She liked, also, when the weather permitted, to throw a scarf about  her  tawny head  and  walk  about   the  gardens  alone.     It was   Miss   Elliot's  opinion    that the    girl was    secretly  homesick and pining for the soft  airs  which wafted down the Bosphorus, so  she never interfered with these evening promenades.  Ruggles appeared to havc brought  hack the fair weather from the south,  for thc day of his' arrival in Paris was  onc of those bright but softly colored  ones for which France i.s famed, and  which, alas, are now becoming rare.

Pekin,  WHEN YOU SUFFER  FROM RHEUMATISM  Sun Life Shows  Large Gains  49th Annual Report Is Issued, Show-  ins Tremendous Expansion  Several new and interesting records  in the insurance business were made  by the Sun Life Assurance Co. of  Canada during 1919. The 49th annual  report of the company has just been  published and shows that the new  business actually issued;and paid for  during the past year was $86,548,850,  beintv an increase of $34,957,457, or  67.7 per cent., over" 1918. Thc tremendous business of the Sun Life will be  realized when it is stated that applications for new assurances retained  during 1919 exceeded one hundred  million dollars. The figure creates a  distinct record in the insurance business of the Dominion, as no Canadian  company has ever approached this total.  The business in force amounted to  $416,358,462, showing an increase of  $75,548,805. The assets of the company were increased by $8,091,089, and  now amount to $105,711,468, while the  report shows a net surplus of $8,037,-  440 over and above ail liabilities and  capital stock, which indicates the ira=  portance attached by the company to  safety, and protection. The company  Tiai<-1 out to -Dolicv-holdcrs stid their  beneficiaries $12,364,000. bringing the  total amount paid out in this connection since organization to $91,227,532.  Another record was made in regard  to income with a total of $25,704,201.  or an increase of $4,053,101 over the  previous year.  Owing to the remarkable development in the business of Canada's  greatest life assurance corporation,  the directors feel that the business in  the Dominion is due to enormously  expand during the present year.  -iSr-0   DON'T LET THAT COUGH CONTINUE I  JsA Spohn's Distemper Compound  will "knock it in very short time.*' At the first siarn of a cooa-ft  or cold in your horns, gi*re a few doses of "SPOHN'S.** l~  will act on the glands, eliminate the .disease germ and preree-S  further destruction of body by disease.

The Stomach Can Only Do Its Work  When the Blood is Rich  and Ked  Indigestion means loss as well as  suffering to many people. Loss of  strength, loss *~of time and loss of  money follows indigestion, and dehil-  ity continues as long: as the indigestion remains. Workers, suffer from  indigestion because their hours are  long, and often they cannot give proper -time to meals. Then the appetite becomes fickle, digestion becomes  feeble and the blood becomes impoverished. So the general health suffers; langor, nervous troubles and often sleeplessness follows. It is well  to remember that the whole system  relies upon good blood and that good  blood is impossible unless the digestion is good.  The  stomach  cannot  do  its   work  unless   the  blood   is  made   rich   and  red, and so new blood alone can cure  indigestion.    It is for this reason that  a   remedy    like  Dr   Williams'     Pink  Pills,  which   makes  new,  rich   blood,  cures  indigestion   and  builds  up  the  whole system.   The great value of Dr.  Williams'  Pink Pills in  cases of this  kind   is  proven  by   the  statement   of  Mr. R. E. Small, Wingham, Ont., who  says: "The truthfulness of my statement can be proven by scores of my  friends  and   acquaintances.     I   am   a.  glove   cutter   by   trade,   and   for   six  long ycars have at limes been a great  sufferer     from   complication     of   ills  chiefly due to indigestion.    Gas would  accumulate  on   the  stomach,   causing  me great pain.    I  would bloat up at  times, and almost suffocate, and often  when at work would be overcome by  a   drowsy   oppression   which   was  almost  indescribable.    Finally  I  began  the use of Dr. Williams'  Pink  Pills,  and  after  taking seven  boxes  I  feel  like a new man.    The transformation  thcy have made in me is simply remarkable,   and   while   using   them   T  gained thirteen pounds in  weight.    T  may add that I began the use of Dr,  Williams'   Pink   Pills  as  a   result   of  what  thcy did  for a niece, who un-  dei'wcul u critical operation, and who  did not regain iicr strength until she  started using the pills.    In  her case  they   fully   restored   her   health,   and  this encouraged me lo begin their use,  with, as I havc already said, a complete restoration of health in* my own  case."  You can get Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills through any dealer in medicine,  or by mail at 50 cents a box, or nix  uujyf-id    eui    ^itr.xiyi,    iiuen    Ltlvr    Ivi.

Will Abolish Conscription  All Conscripted Men Will Be Demobilized Before May 1  Conscription in Great Britain is to  be abolished at the end of March,  according to an announcement made  by Winston Churchill, British Minister of War, in the House of Com-j  mens. This means that al! ccr.seripi={  ed men will be demobilized before  May 1 at the latest. After that date  the British army force will number  about 220.000 exclusive of Indian  troops.* Any further reduction i������ improbable at present, owing to conditions in  Palestine and  Mesopotamia.  The Minister of War has estimated that  35,000 men  will be  required  to keep order in Ireland, where, only j  25,000 were stationed before the war. j  JO.      -VTA 0<~T ^ -d+~~-.~-&-.-m  Influenza  The Liniment that Cures All  Ailments���������  ifA Jt X*������  JT*.
