SPOHN   MEDICAL COMPANY, GOSHEN,  lND.r  U.S.A.  ranam  rlllCO  lit s Ai  vice  A Firm Foundation  With the approach of Spring, and a revival of "business activity following  a." winter characterized by much unemployment and the necessity for: the distribution o. relief on a large scale by Governments, municipalities and charitable org-anizations, the air is filled with rumors of impending strikes and industrial-disturbances. -/The coal miners of Canada and the United States  threaten a walk-out to enforce their demand for a six-hour day and a five-day  -work week, while the engineering and other trades in Great Britain are also  resorlicg to extreme measures. ���������>    .  It would naturally have been thought that, instead of creating conditions  which mean idleness, not only for those going out on strike, but for countless thousands engaged in other trades which are dependent upon a,plentiful  supply of coal, and instead of striving for less work and employment, the  lessons of the past year would have taught all men to exert themselves to  create more work in order that, with tlie employmnt of ail and.renewed actiy:,  ity, there woud be better times and a larger measure of prosperity for all.  However, it would appear that the-fallacious teaching of paid, agitators,  that a reduction in���������working hours and days below a reasonable limit must  inevitably provide work for a larger number, still influences many* of the  world's workers. The theory that the world nrust have a certain quantity  of any given article, and that if each individual produces a smaller quantity  of it, a larger number must be employed to make up the required total, is a  false theory. It is possible to so enhance the cost of aa article aa tc make  it prohibitive, and to so seriously reduce the demand, that, instead of there  being any increase in employment in such production, there is a damaging  decrease.  Again, those who preach this i'al^e doctrine lose sight of the fact that  mankind can get along without an amazingly large number of things if circumstances force them to do so. The experiences of the war should have  been sufficient to thoroughly convince all people of this fact.  Last year the coal miners in Great Britain sought to dictate to the whole  nation, and in tying up the coal mining industry they not only inflicted enormous losses on themselves, but dealt a blow at Britain's position as a great  coal exporting country from which it has not yet recovered. "Valuable properties were so seriously damaged that even yet they have not been restored  to .their old-time producing capacity, and  fewer men are  Employed.  Canada's workers would do well to heed the advice once, given hy Abra-  Franco-British Alliance May Result in  United Europe  We doubt if much good will come  out of Genoa, but if France and Great  Britain go there as allies there cannot be much harm. AdbuT'Hamil remained in Constantinople.. Ibng*;.after  authority had left his nerveless " fingers simply, .owing, to. .the jealousies  of the European*powers. Bolshevism  in its tu:rn will sticcumb when it finds  itself face-to face with a. united  Europe. ..A'Franco-British alliance is  the only "foundation' on which that  unity can be built.���������London Morning  POSt.:  er in 2nd Degree  Using a razor-���������bad stuff���������but many  people do it for their corns.

But they are especially valuable in the spring when the system  is loaded *with impurities as a result  oE    the    indoor    life    of    the    winter  VV hen jyiilady Ijoes a*  ��������������� -������  ham  Lincoln,   himself a  worker and  a   son   of  the   people.       Lincoln   said: < months.       There   is  no   other  season  "Property is the fruit of labor; property is desirable; it is a positive good  in the world. That some should be rich shows that others may become rich,  and hence is just encouragement to industry and enterprise. Let not him  who is hopeless pull down the house of another, but let him build one for him-  slf, thus assuring, by example, that his own shall be sate from violence  when built." _  The man who gains a competence in this world, or amasses wealth, does  not do so by working as little as he possibly can, or by skimping the work he  does. The world's rich men are among its most industrious and hardest  workers. Their aim in life is not to accomplish as little constructive, productive work as possible in the course of a day, but rather to strive i'or a  maximum of: results.  If men who now regard their position as hopeless, and are envious of the  success of their fellows, would but follow Lincoln's advice and get busy and  exert themselves, not as little as possible, but |o the full extent ol their powers, they could  quickly establish themselves  and make a worthy place   for  themselves   in   the   world.       But  they  will   never   get  anywhere   by   sinaply  critieiziag what -others do and striving to tear down what others have built  up.      They should change their tactics, and, instead of endeavoring to do as  little as possible, and skimping that little, try the plan of exerting all their  efforts and   endeavoring to achieve  a maximum of good  work accomplished  during the full period of a reasonable long working day.  What this old world needs is not more spare time, more sport, more entertainment and pleasure, but more work, steady work, constructive and product i/e work. The busiest man or woman is the happiest, healthiest, most  prosperous.

Oriental   immigration''  was costing  the country millions^ of   dollars,    Mr.  McBride said, and the effect it would  have    on   civilization   could   not   be  ignored.    Orientals would not assimilate, and the white and yellow races  would never associate.      They should  not be "brought together.      He declared that in 1910 only 20 Japanese were  born in British. Columbia, but in 1920  the   number   had   grown  to e657.       In  1910, 17 Japanese were born in British Columbia to, every2,000 white. In  1920, the foreigners were 69 Japanese  fto 1,000 white.       ^     :-  Orientals were receiving their education at the expense of. the British  Columbia taxpayers, Mr. ���������'McBride  continued. In Vancouver it cost $60,-  000 to educate Orientals last year.  The influx of Japanese and Chinese  tended to lower the moral and laboring standards of the community. lt\  was a situation which must be ended  at once.

SecaitdhandStore im -cormeciim.  with business  (Publication requested]  Apple trees that will bear a crop  every year have  been  and are almost as eagerly sought after as the  elixir of  life.    In many  cases   .the  difference between annual   bearing  and biennial bearing means just the  difference between profit  and loss;  W.  M. Grant, of Blenheim.  Out.,  who has a fruit and early vegetable  farm near Chatham, has an orchard  whioh   has borne continuously   for  the last six   years and   promises to  keep this up   indefinitely.'   The secret, according to Mr. GrcrVit, lies in  tlie timely application   of fertilizer.  Mr. Grant  is a graduate   of the  O.A.C.,     and   has   been   growing  apples), tobacco  and \'egetables for  manj^ years.    His   farm   iB   about  twelve miles from Chatham, on the  provincial highway from  Niagara  to Windsor.    The problem  off ann  ual bearing of apple trees interest-  en him  strongly, and   the   system  which he has  worked out  is based  on his  HC-ientifio knowledge  of tho  fruiting habit of  the apple as well  an on bin practical experience   ae a  f arn H-r.  When the tree commences thc operations   rif growth   and rcproduc  tion in tbn spriug it has three tilings  to do. First, it lias to produce  enough leaven to mannfactiiiro its  food; then it hn������ to deyiiBop tho  fruit I'nudH for the ywirVi crop; nnd  finally it \mn to produce fnmib buds  for the nwact yimr'n crop.

TJiese provide the main source of  nitrogen and phosphorus. In addition to this fifteen hundred  pounds of a four-two-six mixture  hare used. This mixture is made  from the mother liquor which is a  a by-product of the beet sugar refinery. The liquor contains six per  cent, of potash and is the sole  source of potash in the fertilizer.  It is poured over peat which ab  sorbs it. Then the peat is granulated so that it will mix with the  nitrate of soda and the bone flour  and run through a. fertilizer drill.  A combination grain and fertilizer  drill is used on Mr. Grant's farm to  spread the mixture.  ��������� P    -   ���������   *a* *.    -  P   *Y-.'-  * '-������������������   ���������"���������      -      ;   .

Annual  bearing can be secured without  thinning the crop, though thinnisig  would probably improve the quality of the fruit.  Some years ago^YMr. Grant recorded the average production of  six trees in   his orchard, which   is  ,   ie  about twenty-three years old and  just at its best. The average production of the six trees was twenty-  two and a third bushels per tree  and apples were selling at two  dollars per bushel that year. Such  figures are a fair answer to the  met. who maintain that they cannot afford to use commercial fertilizer on their orchards.���������A.H.M.  1I5&S and  all sizes ;froui 30x 3J to 34 x 4J- at rock bottom prices.

STEAD  Published  By 'Spe-cial  Arrangement With the Author.  ( C^c\v\ t?Tin c\Z\ \  How he ��������� Harris ��������� wearied by  the long ride in the bright,  thin air, had gone to sleep confidently  with Allan at his. side, and of how he  had suddenly been awakened by a  shot and. had heard Allan spring to  his feet and rush across the floor of  the old building. Then there had  been another shot���������a revolver .shot  this time���������=and everything was darkness, and he could hear only something struggling at the door. Then  he told of his own fight; of how they  had fallen and rolled about on the  rotten floor, and how, in desperation,  he had not hesitated to use his teeth  on the hand of his assailant, who had  finally broken away and disappeared  in the darkness. Then he told the  rest of the story; of his vigil with Allan, of the loss of the money, of the  capture of Travers, and finally of the  arrival of the policeman on the scene.  "Didn'  t it   seem  to   you  a  foolish  thing to go into the hills with all that  money to meet a man you had never  iseen, and buy a property you had never examined?" asked the coroner.  '���������*"    "It wasn't foolishness; it was stark,  "raving madness, as E see it now," Harris   admitted.       "But  I   didn't  see  it  that way then.      It looked like a lot  of easy money.      I didn't care whether there was a- coal mine at all or not,  &r> long as we made bur turn-over to  the New York people."  "But did it not occur to you ��������� that  the whole thing���������-coal mine and irjine  owner and New Yorkers and all���������was  .simply a scheme hatched up to induce  you away into the fastnesses of the  foothills with a lot of money in your  possession?"  A half-bewildered look came over  Harris, as of a man gripped by a new  and paralyzing thought. But he  shook    his    head.      "No,    it    couldn't  have been that," he said. "You see,  Kites, was an old neighbor of mine,  and Mr. Gardiner^ ;tqo, I knew for a  good many years,--'*'���������:������t wasn't like as  if.I had be ensealing with strangers."  "We will go deeper into that matter after a little/' said the coroner.  "It's very fortunate Mr. Gardiner is  here .to add what light he can to the  mystery. We will now adjourn to  the room, where thei younger Mr. Harris iies and hear his evidence. It  would be unwise to-saove him for  some days yet." :  They found Allan partly propped  up In the white bed. His face was  pale, and his hands were astonishingly thin and white, but his mind was  clear, and he could talk without difficulty. He covered much the same  ground as his father had done, up to  the point where the elder Harris" had  fallen asleep in the old building.  "I can't tell you how it happened,  Doctor," he gaidi turning his eyes,  larger now in his pale face, upon the  coroner, "but I think I got very homesick���������I guess I was pretty tired, too���������  and I began thinking of things that  had happened long ago, back -when I  was a little child, .In a little sod  shanty that the old shack In the valley some way s,eem*ed to bring to  mind;- And then I gue^s 'I fell  asleep, tod; but ..-Suddenly- I sat up in a  great fright. I'm not a coward," he  said, -with a faint smile. "When I'm  feeling myself it: takes 'more than a  notion; or a dark night to send the  creeps up the back of my neck. But  I own I sat up there so frightened  my teeth chattered. I had a feeling  that   I   was   going  to he  attacked���������I  rf^nr\ in ft     tr-nrvvxr    "Kxr     tmrTm***}* -m o���������,*-!������*������     3*tr     o      . .��������� ~  ., -r j it  ������*������.. -xxxxij   -rx- ���������^        .   x���������  wild beast���������but something was going  to rush in through that old "blanket  hanging in the door and pounce on  me."   ��������� -.-;;  The sweat was standing on Allan's  face, and he sank back weakly into  the pillows. Beulah placed a glass  to his lips, and the doctor told him to  take his time with his story. The  jurors stood about the bed in silence,  looking from one to the other with expressions that suggested they were  almost in the presence of the supernatural. If the black bag with the  money had slowly risen out of the  floor someone would have Quietly set  it in a corner until Allan was ready  to continue his evidence.  "As the minutes went by," Allan  continued,-after an .interval, "that terrible dread grew upon me, and ray  sense of danger changed from tear to  certainty. Something was going to  attack me through that door! -I raised my gun and took careful aim. I  saw the blanket swing a little; then I  saw the fingers of a man's hand: Then  I fired.  "Perhaps I am a murderer," he continued, simply, "but before God I  know no more why I fired that shot  than you do."  There were deep breathing and  shuffling of. feet as Allan completed  this part of his statement, but only  the coroner .found his voice. "Most  remarkable evidence," he ejaculated.  "Most extraordinary evidence. I  have hever heard anything so obvious-  \ ly sincere and at the same time so altogether unesplainable  shoot this man," she said, "don't  hlaaa-a Allan for it. Xeet ms pay any  price that must be paid."  "Most extraordinary/' the coroner  repeated, after a silence. "Tt seems  to account for the shooting of Riles,  but it leaves us as much as ever���������  more than ever, I should say���������in the  ;dark, concerning the disappearance of  the inbney, and the part which has  implicated the: young man Travers in  the affair."  The banker gave his evidence. It  was not unusual, he said, for considerable sums in bank-notes to be handled  among speculators and land buyers,  but the amount withdrawn "by Harris  was so great that it had left him  somewhat ill at ease, and as Sergeant  Grey had happened his way he had  mentioned the matter to him. ���������'  The policeman shed little new light  on the'case. He had followed the  .party into "the hills as best he could,  taking the off" chance of something  sinister afoot. He had found Harris, with his wounded son, and a prisoner, and a man dead in the doorway.  He had notified the coroner and taken Travers in charge". Here his eyes  met Beulah's. VI don't think there is  anything more to be said," he concluded.  During the hearing of the various  witnesses Gardiner had attempted an  air of Impersonal interest,-but with no  great success.* His demeanour, studied though it was, betrayed a certain  anxiety and impatience. He was  dressed. just as he had dismounted  from his horse, having removed only  his hat. But he smiled confidently  when asked for his evidence, and told  his story calmly and connectedly.  It is eijUite xfUe that he Was associated with Riles and Mr. Harris in  the coal-mine investment. He was  acting for the owner of the property,  but had seen that a large profit was  to be made : from the turn-over, and  had been glad to place the opportunity in the way of two old friends. The  offer from the New York concern was  entirely bona fide; he had the telegram in his pocket at that moment,  notwithstanding the suggestion made  by the coroner, which, if he might say  so, he thought was hardly warranted,  and would not-have been made with a  full knowledge of the circumstances.  The owner of the mine could be produced at the proper moment, if that  became necessary.  "I. feel a grave responsibility in this  whole matter," Gardiner protested,  with some emotion. "I feel that I  am, at least indirectly* responsible for  the serious loss that has befallen Mr.  Harris, and for the injury to his son.  But when you have heard the whole  'circumstances you will agree that the  situation was one I could not possibly  have foreseen. Let me give them to  you in some detail.  "The day before 'yesterday, in company with Rites, I met Mr. Harris and  his son, and found that their money  had arrived. The remittance was not  as large as they expected, hut I believed that I could raise some money  privately, and that we would stilL be  able to put the deal through. . I advised against losing any time, as I  knew that if the owner should ineet  anyone else interested in a proposition of a similar nature we would find  H  Product of Canada. ���������  -It was kndwn many years ago that yeast  is an excellent thing for the many ills that  result Irom d isordered stomach or run down  bEood condition* Lately eminent scientists  have been investigating the matter thoroughly and their conclusions point to the  fact that the beneficial effect of yeast has not  been overrated.
