The finish-up to the gathering will  take the shape of a banquet at the  Parish Hall to-night, while on Friday morning members of Creston  Board of Trade and others are supplying automobiles to give the  visitors sal auto tri" over the Valley.  The conference has been ably  presided over by Mrs. Chalmers of  Thrums, the Kootenay-Boundary  representative on the provincial  advisory board, and amongst the  other notables present are D.

All told there are in the neighborhood of forty visitors here for  the affair who, with few exceptions  have been hospitably entertained  in homes in town and nearby. The  Methodist Ladies Aid have rendered valuable assistance by serving  noon-day meals each day for the  convenience of those billeted too  far from town. All the sessions  have been well attended by townspeople as well as the delegates the  turnout at the Wednesday sessions  averaging abont 100.  The secretarial work is being  looked after by the provincial secretary, Mrs. MacLachlan, who is  heartily welcomed on a return visit  after just recently speaking here on  public health nursing matters.  Owing to a shortage of space  we are compelled to omit even the  full list of delegates, as well as the  proceedings of Thursday, but these  will appear next week, while in  later issues we hope to publish some  of the papers which were given.  Delegates arriving on the noon train  on Tuesday were receiyed by the local  Institute ladies and taken to lunch at  the Method ist church. The delegates  from Crows Nest points met those  from the west at a tea in Speers' Hall  on the arriyai of the afternoon train,  a pleasant feature of whieh were a  piano selection by Mrs. Ebbutt of  Creston, and recitations by Mrs. Mc-  <iregor of Penticton,-jsuod^ Mj?s. [���������&������>? by  ���������^Son^ttj^i^ '"'",*..  Opening Session, Tuesday  The opening session of the conference was on Tuesday evening, Mrs.  Chalmers of Thrums presiding. The  delegates^vere fittingly welcomed in a  brief address by Mrs. H. Lyne, presi-  dent of Creston Institute. The, response was by Mrs. McLean of Nakusp  who referred in complimentary terms  to Creston hospitality, and the great  good and uplift to humanity to be obtained from the convention.  Mrs. Chalmers referred feelingly to  the death of Mrs. Blackwood-Wilemar  and various other members. She also  indicated the line of work to be taken  up at the sessions to follow. She suggested women's institutes should take  up the matter of dress for women.  Dr. Warnock, deputy minister of  agriculture, was then introduced, and  uxopening referred in pleasing manner to his position as superintendent  of institutes, and looked forward to  having federal aid to assist in federation of institutes, which was the hope  of the institute of the future.  He urged co-operation in all matters  especially public health, which is largely a matter for the institutes, with the  department ready to Rive every aid.  There arc now 78 institutes in B.C.  with nearly 3000 members. In two  years there will he 100. due to the  opening up of an enormous area in  central B.C., where it will he necessary  to greet the stranger within the gates.  There will be a greater immigration  next year of ex-service men and also of  ex-service women. He stated that the  report on conditions in Canada made  by Miss Pott and Miss Girdlcr, who  visited the district hist year, was  somewhat, diKcouvumiien*; uh they considered the work was too much of a  pioneer character for their women.

On the chairman ^calling upon members to discuss matters arising out of  Mrs. Fadden's address. Mrs. Mac-  Lachlin spoke of health inspection of  public schools as being a matter of the  very first importance. Mra. Mohr of  Willow Point spoke of the desirability  of women trustees on rural school  boards. Mrs. Thurston gave a comic  recitation which was received with  much applause.  Mrs. Howe of Nelson, as oldest member, was called upon to say a few  words, spoke in a humorous strain of  the generous treatment by Creston  paople, and referred with gratitude to  the institute for then-kindly consideration of herself when she was a stranger within the gates.  Wednesday Morning  Wednesday morning's session opened with devotional 'exercises by Rev.  G. Knox, followed by the national  anthem, after which the chairman announced the selection of the following  committees :  Resolutions���������Mrs. Mohr, Willow  Point; Mrs. Fenton, Cranbrook; Mrs.  Thorburn, Rock Creek; Mrs. McLean,  Nakusp; Mrs. Lyne, Creston.

Dr. Arthur referred to  work of the institutes during wartime  and indicated that there was still plenty of opportunity for. self-effacement  and service,.as^tl^e-Were now other  ..'^o'mf^..**ftt^-''*bl^*!^5lL:'. that menaced  our homes. Education ��������� its vitally essential; people,"who haye T.B. are not  to be used as lepers.  1. Everyone having T.B. is not a  menace t-o society. Where there is no  sputum and no open sores there is  little menace. 2. A patient who  knows how to take care is no danger  to an adult. - 3. Protection of children  in infancy and early life does a great  deal as it is now held that* infection  really occurs at this period and may  render a patient immune if not too  great, or may be inactive and develop  later. 4. Tuberculosis is not hereditary but acquired, A child is free from  disease at birth, even should one or  both parents have the disease.  Prevention depends upon fresh air;  food in which there is a large supply  of vitamines, and living under sanitary conditions with rest and sleep.  Dr. Arthur discussed adequate hospital accommodation and health inspection and fayored treating patients  in proximity to their own homos  where possible.  The discussion was opened by Mrs.  McGregor of Penticton who quoted  several authorities as to their ideas of  treatment of thetfc cases, and what has  been done in B.C., Manitoba and Ontario in connection with soldiers re-  establishment clinics.  Discussion was then halted to allow  Dr. Henderson of Creston to give a  demonstration of the method of conducting examination of pupils to public schools. He gave an eyesight test  which showed case of defective yision.  The   discuMHion   then   took   place   as  to   advantages  of   consulting   optici  ans without lirst. having  the advice of  an oculist.  The remainder of tho hour was occupied wilii discussion on pediculosis  that at times proved ludicrous and at  times pathetie. A vote of thanks was  moved by Mi-h. MacLachlan, seconded  by Mi'ii, I^uliKn, to Dr. Il-.-~-idt.-i-i.-on for  bis interCrting and instructive demon  , t-Jtratinn.

The chairman also read greetings from Mrs. Watt, who wrote of  the great success of Women's Institutes in Great Britain.  The roll call on prohibition was then  taken, after Mrs. Hugh- Ross of Nelson had explained the difference between the Prohibition Act as it is to  be amended and government control.  It developed that while the majority  seemed to favor prohibition it was not  controlled prohibition but the bone  dry law. Very little seemed to be  known about what government control would involye.  Mrs. Lytle of Crawford Bay gave a  paper on Schools, in which she advocated the co-operation of parents both  with the teacher and the government.  There was considerable discussion of  this subject in which Mrs. Keen, Mrs.  MacLachlan and Mrs. Porter were  prominent.  A vocal solo by Miss Muriel Knott  and a recitation by Mrs. Ashby came  next, and then Mr. Kidman of Crawford Bay gave a comprehensive paper  on Agriculture. Many questions were  asked about his method of propagating potatoes, though interest seemed  chiefly to centre around his recommended plan of using elderberry juice  instead of sugar in preserying fall  fruits such as plums.  School re-opens on Tuesday with  Misses Corbett and Knott again in  charge. Thus far nothing definite has  emanated from the department as to  a new building, and at present it looks  as if last year's teaching facilities will  have to suffice for another year.  Mrs. G. Strong was taken to Cranbrook the latter part of the weekv  where she is undergoing treatment at  St. Eugene hospital.  The Canyon City section was favored with a rainfall of almost half an  inch the latter part of the week, which  at least has laid the dust and cleared  the air of smoke.  Residents of the Valley will await  with interest the experiment at the  C. O. Rodgers farm where about five  acres of sunflowers are about to be  harvested and will be fed as ensilage.  Despite a quite dry season some of the  sunflowers are about ten  feet high.  Mrs. T. Hickey got back a few days  ago from her trip to Nanton, Alta.,  and the family are now occupying the  house on the Fraser ranch.  Thanks to the generosity of the  trustees Canyon school pupils will  have opportunity to figure in the  school district's competition at the  Creston fair next month. Two $5  prizes are hung up for the best map of  Kootenay and best half bushel of  potatoes.  C. Blair's advance haymaking crew  will commence preliminary operations  at the Reclamation Farm the latter  part of the w������ ek. This year's cut of  hay will depend on the outside  demand for this class of feed.  During the visit here last week of  Messrs.

Wednesday Evening's  Public Meeting  The Wednesday evening session  took the shape- of an open meeting,  which attracted an audience that  filled Speers' Hall to capacity. Proceedings opened with the singing of  the Maple Leaf Forever, and throughout the session literary numbers were  contributed by Mrs. McGregor of Penticton, and Mrs. Thurston of Creston,  while two yocal solos were contributed  by Mrs. D. C. MacKenzie of Creston.  The fir������"*t speaker was Hon. John  Keen, M.P.P., of Kaslo, whose talk  was on the "Laws of Inheritance *%s  they Affect-Women and children |a  able clearness Mr. Keen sketched the-  inheritence laws of the province since  its inception pointing, out that at the  beginning no provision -at all was  made for the widow and children.  Later it was amended so that the  widow was looked after provided  there was no will to the contrary,  while at present the statutes provide  she shall have half of the estate of an  intestate if there are no children, and  one third of it in any case.  There was a very lively discussion of  the subject in which various suggested  amendments were brought forward.  Mr. Keen's advice to tbe ladies was to  see to it that they and their husbands  avoided all trouble of this sort by  making wills, and that if progress was  to be made in improving the inheritance law those interested should get  together and unitedly prepare such  amendments and submit them to the  legislature for consideration.  The second paper was on "Public  Health Nursing," the speaker being  Miss Kelly, who is now engaged in  that line of work in the Waldo and  Baynes district. She spoke enthusiastically of the beneficial results that  arc already in evidence after but a  few months effort, especially emphasizing thc good work that can be done  amongst tho school pupils by teaching  them healthful habits in connection  with their schoolroom life and by paying attention to them where they are  absent from school due to illness���������in  the latter ease also meeting their  parents under most favorable circumstances. In rural schools particularly  she urged provision for serving hot  lunches  or drinks at tho noon  hour.  .Tne evening session concluded with  a   iiuniM-  on "\Veavini������" hv    Mr-1'   fit**..  km ��������� - '    ~- " - .. -  land Foster of Nelson, which was ren  tiered doubly interesting by the exhibiting of -Hamph'H of hand woven  pi-oiluctM, seiiiu* eif which she* had done  hiM'm'lf while overseas on hospital  work during thc great war, while  other   Humpies   of   linens, yarns, etc.,  ,���������������,.������...   **)><>    nvxl lll'l      ILf   t\\l>    Ol\t������1r lw\l>r>v..  at Brilliant.

A Rev. D. Robertson of Strathcota,  Alta., has signified his willingness to  become rector of the English Church  at Rossland. and has been notified  that the congregaeion will try him  out.  The skating rink at Phoenix has  been 6old and is being torn down.  The proceeds will likely be used to  erect a suitable memorial to the  Phoenix men that fell in the gi-eat  war.  An idea of how the town of Penticton has been developing may be gleaned from the fact chat in the past-  twelve months over 100 additions have  been made to the list of city water  users.

Canada has long been recognized  throughout the world, and especially  in the great republic to the south, as! is dependent upon respec!  a country where law was respected  and obeyed, where even-handed justice was administered to high and  low, rich and poor alike, and where  sooner or later the long arm of the  law would get the guilty. In the  United States, where so many murderers escape just punishment for  their crimes, where the law's delays  arc almost interminable, and where,  as a result of a lack of public confidence in the machinery of justice,  lynchings are not infrequent, the reputation borne by Canada was an invaluable asset. It is an asset Canada  cannot afford to lose, nor allow to be  lessened.  A few weeks ago, however, a  group of men in southern Saskatchewan took the law into thcir own  hands and drove a labor agitator out  of the country, threatening him with  tar and feathers if he returned. On  August 16, at Thorold, Ont., a mob  stormed thc town jail and finally set  lire to it in an effort to take a prisoner from the officers of the law in  order that they might execute him  themselves, although he had not yet  been found . guilty of the crime  of which he was accused. Fortunately, common sense and an appeal to  British fair play was effective in restraining the passions of the mob  before it took the irretrievable step.  People, however, must be on their  guard against such exhibitions and  acts,   if   Canada   is not  to suffer in  thc eyes of the world, and the rights  and liberties of its own people placed  in    jeopardy.       Even   in   the earlier  days -when   the  west  was  "wild  and  woolly," and at thc time of thc great  stampede   to   the    Yukon,    law    was  maintained and respected so effectively as to call forth* the admiration of  all  countries.     It  is  as  necessary  as  ever   that   it   should   continue   to   be  maintained.     Thc   world   has   passed  through   a   great   war   when   human  life seemed to be the cheapest cora-  " modity in thc world, and as a result  many  people   do  not  look upon   the  take of human life as seriously as of  old.     But the   old   conception   of  the  ���������sacredness of human life must be fully re-established, and it is the duty of  all   citizens   io  assist  by  precept  and  practice   to   such   restoration,  and  to  oppose  by  all legitimate    means    in  thcir   pov.--:r   any tiling   that   tends   to  true, hnd that the whole organism on  which human society rests has been  evolved and erected because of general acceptance of the absolute necessity of a state of law and order. Mob  rule is evil and vicious In the highest degree.  The maintenance of order rests  absolutely in respect for and the upholding of the law. And the upholding of the law���������which, after all, is  but the concrete expression of the  will of  the majority of the people���������  for and  unqualified support of those who are  appointed to administer the laws  which the people through their elected representatives have enacted for  the common good and protection of  all.  There can bc only onc outcome resulting from a loss of public confidence in the administration of justice  in this country, and through the acts  of the people taking the law into  their own hands���������law will bc superceded by license; anarchy will replace order. Life and property will  become playthings *&i the passions of  men, and all thosc precious liberties  and that freedom, to defend and  maintain which our heroic soldiers  died and suffered in their hundreds of  thousands, and which alone can be  maintained under a system of law and  order, will be destroyed, and a state  of disorder and chaos prevail.

SUMMER HEAT  HARD ON BABY  Black Bass for Lake Nipigon  Thc south end of Orient Bay on  Lake Nipigon, and Kccmaniy Lake  were recently stocked with three hundred parent black bass. The fish were  shipped from Toronto in tanks and  deposited in the water by Neil Mc-  Dougall, sportsman's representative  of the Canadian National railway.  '. No'Season of the year is so dangerous to the life of little ones aj is the  summer. The excessive heats throws  the little stomach out of order so  quickly that unless prompt aid is at  hand the baby may be beyond all  human help before the mother realizes he is ill.

The vine  is the Black Hamburg variety. The  fruit in recent years has been good,  but this season the number and quality of the bunches is rather above the  average. The girth of the stem is five  feet at the base. Several years ago  twelve bunches of fruit from the wonderful vine were shown at a Royal  Horticultural Society exhibition and  the combined weight was 42 pounds.

RED   ARMY   IS   DRIVEN BACK  Says Trainmen Not  Exploiting Public  Bolsheviki Forced to Retire Along A  Wide Section of  Front  Paris.���������Warsaw   now   seems  to   be  laved  from   the   Bolsheviki.     President Pilsudski's armies no longer are  obliged to fight a defence battle and  arc   now   on' the   offensive,   was   thc  news  reaching here from the Polisii  iBources,   and   the   Reds   are   pausing  before  attempting  to   develop    their  successes.    Thc offensive on the left  wing  is  bc.ng  personally led  by  the  French generals, Henury and Bilyot-  te,   and   already   has   yielded   several  hundred prisoners.    Once  more   this  will put the Poles in possession of the  fork between the    Narew    and    Bug  Rivers, while thc forces advancing towards  Mlawa, which    have    reached '  Tsiechanoff, 12 miles to the south of  Mlawa, will force  Bolsheviki marching towards Plock and Thorn to beat  a hasty retreat and consequently reopen thc road-line to Danzig.  But thc manoeuvre on the right  wing, along thc line^of Garvolin and  Paratchoff, between the Vistula and  the Bug, is thc more interesting of  the two from the strategic standpoint,  because it threatens communications  with Red forces.  These troops havc just arrived  from the Brody region, and have  made rapid headway and have driven  the Reds back all along the line toward Brest-Litovsk for distances  varying from 25 to 50 miles.  ��������� Moscow.���������-"-Soviet Russia's position  on both tho Polish and South Russian  fronts was pronounced "generally  satisfactory" by Leon Trotzky, Bolshevik war minister in an address  here. Thc speech was delivered at a  meeting of the  Moscow soviet.  Discussing the military situation,  Trotzky declared that on the front  against White Poland, our Red troops  havc tulfilled thc fundamental part of  their task. Thc hodling up of our advanced troops before Warsaw in no  way alters the situation, as the Polish  front is now divided into parts���������military and diplomatic��������� aud posseses  two centres, onc in Warsaw and the  other in Minsk.  "Thc peace negotiations at Minsk  arc of exceptional importance," continued the war minister, "because  they are developing on thc unstable  foundations of a stormy movement  among the workers. Great Britain,  also, is passing through an unheard  of display of excitement among her  workers in connection with thc peace  negotiations between Russia and Poland.  "On General Wrangel's front," hc  added, "We are opening the gate wide  to our enemies, but we *3hall assault  them in the flank and rear. The fate  of thc revolution will bc decided on  the Polish front. This is why wc  havc continued our fences in thc west  and arc only leaving posts on thc  southern front in connection with  the campaign, just to keep Wrangel  busy."  ia   I'AlfUlU   n  Explain That Five- Hour Day Is Not  Equivalent to Eight-hour  Day of Industry  Toronto.��������� Declaring that certain  evidence regarding the "five-hour  day," as given before the Dominion  railway commission in connection  with the application for increases in  freight rates has been misunderstood,  and used to make it appear that the  strongly organized trainmen, by their  demands, have been exploiting the  public, and are reported for the further rate increase, a statement has  been issued by the executive of the  unions. v-  The principal contradictions are as  follows:  1. The basic five-hour day for passenger engineers is not equivalent in  any way to the eight-hour day in industry. "It is a minimum guaranteed  day measurement, for special occasions, very seldom used. The general rule is that engineers in the passenger service arc paid on a mileage  basis. Their hours of work are most  irregular, often extending from  twelve to eighteen hours on a single  trip.  2. There is not a great deal of  overtime in the wage", of trainmen,  engineers operating passenger trains  do not get time and a half for overtime. The only men who receive ,hia  are the trainmen and engineers on  the slow freight service, which is not  the general rule.  3. It is true that time as well a-3  mileage is one of the factors that  determine pay, and that delay is  sometimes paid for, but, this is only  on special occasions, ?.nd it is untrue to say tl at there is any induce-  AN INTERESTING  DISCUSSION  ty. -aft t-     * *-������ v  -0~*~-tt ~      ~.\~t *  11 ���������V-'C-l  o  to strive ior oeiays.    xne maucement  is all for operating on time.  4.

Says Danger of War With Russia is  Not Over  London.���������The "council of action"  of the British labor party, after a  long discussion, issued a new manifesto to the workers of Great Britain  declaring that the danger of war was  not  over.  "This," the manifesto says, "is not  the time to bc deceived by seeming  fair words. Why docs not the Premier announce the terms on which  England will make peace with Russia? Why is the position with regard  to the adventures of General Wrangel submerged?" Thc manifesto demands a full peace, together with a  resumption of trading with Russia  and exhorts the workers not to relax  their efforts in this direction.

Counsel Suggests There is Less Need  For Increased Rates  In the West  Ottawa.��������� An interesting development in the hearing before the rail-  commission of the application of the  Canadian railways for increased  freight rates and passenger rates  occurred when II. J. Symington,  counsel for thc government of Manitoba, threw out the suggestion that,  in view of the fact that operating expenses are lower and earnings higher  on western C.P.R. lines, the same necessity does not exist for an increase  of rates in the west.  Mr. Symington had been examining W. J. Moulc, assistant comptroller of the C.P.R. at length on the  cost of operating in the east and west  it being shown that during the past  four years net operating expenses in  the west arc lower than in the east,  and the net earnings per train mile  are higher, those for 1919 being ap-  proximaely eighty percent higher.  /'Would you say in view of the  figures," asked Mr. Symington, "that  freight rates increases should be the  same in the west as in the east, if  the increase is to be upon the basis  of paying money for services rendered?"  Mr. Moule, in reply, said that the  operating expenses in the east are  largely incurred for the benefit of the  west. These include large expenses  for port terminals, etc. For this reason, he said, operating ratios are not  a proper indication of the earnings  on eastern and western lines. Expenses in the east of this kind were not,  he said, spread over the entire system.  "Is not more traffic originated in  the west for the long haui?" asked  Mr.  Symington.  Mr. Moule: "1 supose it is."  "Even  so,"  interposed Chief Commissioner Carvell, "does it not have  to be transported over onejhousand  miles of waste country?"  Mr. Symington remarked that it  was strange that the Lake Superior  C.P.R. division was one,, of the best  paying divisions of the C.P.R.  ' Commissioner McLean compared  the Superior division to a bridge  which must be maintained, and Mr.  Carvell 6aid that without it, production in the west would not amount  to  much.  Mr. Symington remarked ^hat thc  west originates most of the traffic and  to this Chairman Carvell agreed, "If  it were not for the west," he observed, "that section of the railway would  not bc there at all." He added that  it would take, a powerful argument to  convince him that it was a paying  piece of railway.  Earlier in Mr. Symington's examination of Mr. Moulc, he emphasized  the movement of wheat from the  west, contrasting  i'i<-: i'otio with other  Headless   and  Limbless  Body   of  A  Woman Is Found By  Longshoreman  New York.���������The torso of an unidentified woman with head, arms  and legs chopped off has been found  in the Hudson River.  Clinging to the skin were shreds  of clothing of fine material and minute pieces of wrapping paper. This  indicated,  that before being cast into the river  the torso had been w-rapped in heavy  underwear or a blanket and this in  turn covered with heavy wrapping  paper and bound with strong cord.  The police explained the operation  that the package probably had been  weighted down, but that water had  rotted the wrappings and the torso  allowed to  come,  to  the  surface.  Medical officers claimed that it had  been in the water about two weeks.  The police believe that the woman  was about 25 or 30 and weighed  about 130 pounds.  RITWIAN PMFfV  l\V*\JmJm,~7m-l.

The secretary of state also said  that regarding recognition of Gen.  Wrangel, "there was a divergence  between the two governments, but  the United States was disposed to regard the declared agreement of  France with the principles of the  United States as of more significance  than any divergence of policy involved in the specific action of France in  this single respect." He declares  that France is of the same opinion  as the United States "concerning the  present rulers of Russia, and point9  to condemnation of thc Bolsheviki in  language almost ielentical with that  employed in the United States note  to Italy."

Ink is at least 100 per  cent, higher, and all the other  materials used show. at least an  equal advance���������including labor.  Besides, The Review we believe, is a rather better paper  than when we took it over about  half a dozen years ago.  The label will tell you when  your subscription runs out.

While, naturally, we are not  urging those whose subscriptions  will not expire until September  or thereafter to pay up at once  and save four bits, still we have  no objection to those so disposed  making payment this month and  saving the discount.

The Chinese ringneck pheasant  is also fond of grasshoppers' eggs  and is especially a destroyer of the  locust, which deposits its eggs on  the earth in dry places, as well as  the larvae of any insect which may  be found there.  Tlie pheasant chooses the dandelion and the bulbs of the buttercup  as two of its vegetable delicacies.  Of grass he has a liking for white  aud yellow clover, alfalfa and red  and yellow sorred, but when there  are plenty of dandelions and buttercups he will m  principal vegetable diet.  The birds are very fond of many  of the wild seeds, such as legumes  and thistle, wild carrots, sunflower,  wild lettuce, mayweed, marsh elder,  mustard seed and many other  seed 8.  Many of the insects that are injurious to the corn and wheat crops  are destroyed by pheasants. These  birds will not attack the grain or  ear of the corn until late in the season, after insecet food is scarce.  In North Dakota an experiment  on a fairly large scale is being  made with the rarity known as the  Chinese ringneck pheasants.  The state Game and Fish Board  of North Dakota has learned from  good authority that this particular  pheasant is a very hardy bird and  will thrive in any climate. The  pheasant, especially the Chinese  ringneck and English varieties, are  the most valuable of the insect eating birds as well as the most  attractive and early sought game  birds, of all the five species that  can be raised in captivity or in a  semi-domestic way, and are easily  kept in the district in which they  are propagated.  That the western grain-growers  may be aided by their governments  to fight successfully against the  hoppers, is the desire of every Canadian interested in this country's  progress.  All sportsmen will be delighted  if it should be established that the  pheasant is a bird necessary as an  auxiliary to the agriculturists.  Perhaps some of the western legislators will look into this matter, or  at least follow the North Dakota  experiments intelligent!y.���������Com.  nianding the Black Horse Troops,  who has been warned to beware of her  because her soul is as the filth in the  street.  The mosque also is the secret tryst-  ing place of a young American and  the favorite wife of Achmet Hamid, a  powerful sheik. Hamid suspects his  wife and waits for her at the mosque,  and seeing Sari enter, disguised by a  veil and followed by the American,  the sheik plunges a dagger in his back.

Her uncle was leaning a little  farther across the table, the fork in  his  slender fingures  motionless.  "You mean,���������?" he asked, looking  up slowly.  "I mean that what Gawd had intended to be a big man was spoiled  in your city.

Mr. Washburn turned towards the  doorway again and his wife rose hastily, murmuring something about  "havin' to see to things in the cellar."

Moscow is the Centre of the Power  Of Bolshevism  Development of the Soviet government in Russia has been such that  today the vast Russian territory, from  the Pacific to thc Baltic, is divided  into three distinct sections in thc attitude of thc people toward Bolshevism.  In a recent 4,000-mile trip across  the entire country, all thc way from  Vladivostok to the Finnish border,  thc Associated Press correspondent  observed that Soviet support diminished with increasing distance from  the capital at Moscow, where the supreme hats for iron-clad militarism  arc issued.  In the remote eastern section of  Siberia, the Bolshevik admit failure  to establish their sv-stcm and sre  seeking to create a buffer state known  as "The Far Eastern Republic." Siberia proper, from Irkutsk to the  Urals, where eight months ago Bolshevism was welcomed as a relief  from the Kolchak regime, is ready  for another change to anything which  will bring economic betterment.

It is beginning to make itself felt and  it is getting right to the root of International problems. Its newly  formed permanent to consider the  question of national disarmament, and  its decision to establish machinery  "for thc registration and publication  of all future treaties, any not so published to be invalid," are indication  of an extremely healthy influence at  work  in world politics.

Newspaper Protests Against Disturbing This Monument to  ,   German Outrage  They  say  that the Lusitania may  be raised from her grave on the ocean  floor���������that  it is practicable to hoist  the gloomy hulk, with her freight of  death  and  memories, to^the surface  and  the sunshine, where she floated  when the torpedo drove home.   What  purpose would be served in breaking  the sleep of those -who rest with the  Lusitania���������the great ship that suffered outrage and became a cause cele-  bre, a symbol of retributive    justice  against Germany?       Irrevocably she  should be the property of that very  sea that swallowed her, the same that  was to be coursed by vengeful destroyers sinking the submarines. When  the Lusitania sank she became a surety, held in  trust by the ocean, that  thereafter   the seas    should   not   be  stained with murder.    The shattered  liner    holds    memory with  a firmer  grip,  there  on   the floor of the sea,  than  if  she   cruised again.    And  an  unimpaired memory of the Lusitania  is worth the keeping.���������Portland Ore-  gonian.  Vegetable Stew  Use equal quantites of vegetables,  onions, carrots, turnips and potatoes.

New Health   Can   be   Obtained   by  Enriching the Blood Supply  When a girl in her teens becomes  peevish, listless and dull; when nothing seems to interest her and dainties  do not tempt her appetite you may be  certain that she needs more good  blood than her system is provided  with. Before long her pallid cheeks,  frequent headaches and brcathk-ss-  ncss and heart palpitation will confirm that she is anaemic. Many  mothers as thc result of their own  girlhood experience can promptly detect the early signs of anaemia and  the wise mother docs not wait for  the trouble to develop further, but at  once gives her daughter a course with  Dr. Williams' Pink Pill9, which renew  thc blood supply and banish' ana-tuna  before it has obtained a hold ou the  system.  Out of their experience thousand**  of mothers know that anaemia is the  sure road to worse ills. They know  thc ditlcrence that good red blood  makes in the development of womanly health. Every headache, every gaap  for breath that follows the slightest  exertion by the anaemic girl, every  pain r,hc suffers in her back and limb:)  arc reproaches if you havc not taken  the best steps to give your weak girl  new blood, and the only sure way to  do so is through the use of-Dr. William:/ Pink Pillc.  New, rich, red blood iu infused into  the oystcm by every dose of these  pills. From this new rich blood  springs good health, an increased ap-  pcuic, m-vv cucitj-,, ni&u -upiiiu ;u*u  perfect womanly development.
