 'yptyyLti*?  GRE  ���������7iA-  Vol. XV.  creston, b. c, Friday; November 16; 1923  No. 41  Armistice Night  Service is Helpful  The seating capacity of the spacious  Grand Theatre was taxed to capacity  on Sunday night for the memorial*  thanksgiving service which was held  under the joint auspices of the Anglican, Methodist and Presbyterian  chui ches, with the. collection going to  the soldiers' memorial committee to  -wipe off part of the debt remaining on  the granite pillar due to some of the  guarantors failing to meet their  obligations.  The service was featured by an  abundance of congregational singing  of appropriate and familiar hymns in  which the large assemblage entered  most heartily, assisted by the massed  choir of the three denominations, with  Mrs. J._A������ Jaiues presiding at the  piano. The features were "O Canada'  tiie people uniting in tbe chorus, and  the dffeftory number, "Three Meetings  with the Saviour" was splendidly  rendered by the chosr. .  The   gathering   was "in   charge . of  Rev. J. A. James, with  the prayers,  scripture readings   and   addresses   by  Rev.  G. Knox   and  Rev. H. Varley.  The former took as his text* "Enter  into His gate* with thanksgiving and  into His courts- with  praise, be thankful unto Him  and   bless   His   name."  The speaker's   plea   was   fo*r   a   very  genuine thanksgiving; not the all too  common sort   that   merely   expresses  thanks in the hope that such a show  of gratefulness will evoke still further  kindly consideration by the giver of  all good and perfect gifts.  Rev. H. Varley based his ten-minute  talk on the words, ������������������Wherefore seeing  we are cam-pass^ ate  a cloud of witnesses let';*tfe'%ay"������Bi������le'-  every weight and the sin which doth  beset us, and Jet us ruh with patience  the race that is set beforfe us;" urging  that while the assembling together of  the people to -tender thanks was very  much in order, it was possibly the  least important feature of acceptable  thanksgiving. What really counted  was the quality of our gratefulness  which could best be exemplified in the  righteous conduct of our everv day  life.  The collection taken amounted to  almost f54������* which will all be available  to apply on the monument ��������� debt, as  the theatre was given for the occasion  by Mr. C. O. Rodgers, and the service  eheetu were donated by the Creston  Review.  on Saturday for the Ladies'  Guild tea  mid pantry rale. /  W. D.

" An informal conference of the trustees of the Lister. Brickson. Wynndel  and Creston r school districts was held  at the Creston school on Thursday  night, for a discussion of the Valley's  high school situation. -.Chairman F.  jft. Jackson of the local trustee board  acted as chairman, and there was a  solid delegation from each district at  the conference;  The primary object was to find out  exactly how each district felt disposed  toward the erection of a consolidated  high school at Creston. At the present  time pupils from outside districts pay  a tuition fee off $50 each which in a*  number of instances has been found to .  be prohibitive and some of theeountry  scholars have . had to forego high  school training.  Now that practically every rural  school is sending up as many as six  candidates each for the Entrance tests  it is thought an opportune time to  reverse this policy, and have each  district assess itself for a pro rata  share for the building and tnaintenace  of a high school that will be erected  on a site removed from tbe present  Creston public school.  The department is being communicated with to pee just what assistance  is extended in such cases both as to  paying for building* and equipment as  welt as teachers' salaries, the preference being for tbe building cost to be  payable in.three annual instalments.  The trustees prssent were constituted  a committee to report on ~a site, and  the general opinion is that a three-  rOona high school should be put up^  At^the rate Bntrance pupils ar������ eona.  g|' itngp*^  *���������   t***y*?������ffi Y7 *������* ^i0i^^^iJ^:'y^Rii:'i:Z.

"  Geographical Conditions  i*. is announced in the daily press that the proposal to introduce Alberta  coal into the markets ol* Ontario has been dropped, the plan having been found  impossible owing to geographical conditions and the long haul. The experimental freight rate of seven dollars per ton granted by the Canadian "National  "Railawys was not a profitable one from a railway standpoint. An Eastern  it,an is reported as saying: "There is no -Question about it, the death, knell has  been sounded to the possibility of bringing Alberta coal to Ontario in competition with  Pennsylvania  anthracite in  normal   conditions   and at normal  prices."  This announcement is of great national importance and-is bound to have  a profound effect upon future consideration of grave economic issues "an. ��������� this  country. It is certainly disappointing to the West, and to Alberta in particular, where high hopes were entertained that a large market for Alberta coal  could be built up iu Eastern Canada.,  Those, too., v.-ho are anxious to see Canada become more and more* a self-  supporting country are greviously disappointed. Instead of sending tens of  millions of dollars annually into the United States for coal, thus adding enormously to our imports and swelling the. adverse "balance of trade between tlie-  Doininion and the Republic, it "was hoped that this money could be kept at  home, paid out in wages to Canadian miners and assist in the development ol  Canada's natural resources.    -  But it is not to be. Why? Because of geographical conditions. In  other words, because of the long and expensive haul from the West to the  Kast, ancl the East, will not pay the price. It is easier for Ontario to continue  buying in the United States, and as there is no Canadian tariff Imposed on  Pennsylvania anthracite coal the good people of Ontario can buy it just as  cheaply as tlie people of the United States. Coal is one thing in regard to  which the Ontario manufacturer, ancl Ontario people generally, are ardent  tree traders.  The fact that Ontario has been made to realize in the matter of coal that  geographical concisions must be recognized, and that trade cannot "willy nilly"  be forced over geographical barriers, that, in a word, geographical conditions  have a very direct bearing in economics, will, it is to be hoped, open th.e eyes  of Ea?fern people to the fact that the West has to struggle against those same  barriers, and pay the price, on every carload of.freight from Ontario to the  prairies.  Ontario is not denied the right to obtain its coal supplies from its nearest  and cheapest market, the United States. Nor is any customs duty imposed  upon them in so doing thus forcing them to pay more than the actual market  value of the coal.  But when it comes to consideration of the question of allowing the people  of" the West to buy, or even to sell, in their nearest and most advantageous  mark**;!:, Ontario objects most strenuously and declares that in the interests  of Canada's national development and prosperity, Canadians must bus- "made  in Canada" commodities, and traffic must be kept in Canadian channels re-  gardless ol* the cost ot" the geographical difficulties to be overcome, and in the  overcoming of which the West is called upon to pay.  If the Ontario manufacturer really and truly believes that it is essential  above all things that Canadian industries should be developed and prosper,  and to thai, end should be protected by a tariff wall, then he should not only  h'j willing to give a voluntary preference to Canadian coal, but he should  i.i-ove his con.-iisl.eney by appealing to the Dominion Government to* impose a  duty on United Stair-.-* coal sufiiciently high to enable Alberta coal to be ship-  |.f*rl i.o Omario and sold 1 hf-ro tm terms of fair competition with the United  States  product.  Th������-r,' is an old .saying that what, is sauce for the goose is sauce for tlie  jjaud������**r. Whether tin* t-Za.st is prepared to admit this may be open to question, but ir is inevitable thai th-o outcome of this experiment to place Alberta  r-nal on the Ontario mark?-: is going io have the effect of further arousing  YWHi'-rn jieoph- -to a knowledge of the handicaps under which they labor and  to an even fuller realization of what many regard as an injustice, because of  ; lie rervo'.'ni-iei! i n������-i j u a I it y of treatment accorded East and West based on the  peographioai cendiijims which exist in this Dominion.

Phonetic Writing !n Elaftin Land  People -Quiokly Mastered System  Invented By Canadian Missionary  Up to recently the natives of Baffin  Land had no system of writing. But  now a Canadian missionary has invented for their benefit a species of  phonetic writing. Each character  represents a syllable; hence no spelling is required. This curiously simple  system was quickly mastered by the  Bainlanders, who now freely write letters to their friends and hand them  over for delivery to" anyone taking a  journey in the desired direction. The  letters always reach their destination,  because the postman at his first sleeping place invariably reads them all  through. In this way, if a letter happens to get lost, the addressee receives  the missive by word of mouth.  ������:<r-.tbitron    Train     Appsa  'i'.riL.       e v|.LV,j? ie?i       v.'liir 11  Fra'tee,   ��������� 1.:<.--    i1-?;\..\'l\    '. t'-ull  !'.������������������    :--���������-:-.-   ���������>���������'.   ���������'..-    "���������"uivii-.K  to   People  'Hinrr 1 :*a veils touring  Dalplaz,  < .;<--n������-rak-  -.���������itlll        of  iiii ionery  3-1  Asthma is Torture.

But lor one of the non-metallic minerals���������carbon black���������this paper /night  havc to be printed in-some other color, and the automobile tire industry  would be severely handicapped.- Carbon black, a product of the incomplete  combustion of natural gas has irot as  yet been manufactured in Canada, but  the. Mines Branch of the Department  of Mines, through Mr. II. T. Elsworthy,  of -the Chemical Division, is this season making a field study-and chemical  investigation of.natural gas in Western Canada: with particular regard to  determining the composition, character and gasoline content of these  ga"ses. At present **natural gas containing ethane and other hydro-cat*::  borts Is In great demand for the manufacture of^ carbon black.  ������arbon' black is a soft, light soot, Curious information  somewhat similar to the soot produc  ed; by a smoking kerosene lamp.      It..  Is,/however, a product of the burning  of'natural gas.      The flame is impinged against a  metal surface, wTlvichi^  kept cool by i-unning water, and as the  soot   accumulates   it   is   mechanically  removed.      The chief production centres at present are in  West Virginia  and   Louisiana,   where  there   are   tremendous supplies of natural gas. Each  of these states has stringent conservation  legislation  governing the Use o������  the gas.      In Louisiana, before the gas  may be -used  for.the manufacture of  carbon  black  the    gasoline     content  must be extracted, and in certain sections but twenty per cent, of the daily  output of the wells is permitted to be  used for carbon    black    manufacture.  All possible   efforts must be made to  avoid waste in the use of the natural  gaS.      How important the industry is  in Louisiana \may be judged from the  fact that one company's plant consists  of 3 30 burning nouses, 114 by 12 feet.  Canada   has  many  gas  tireas,  some  of.   them    situated    at points distant  from    possible    domestic    utilization,  and   it   is   likely,   as   a  result ,of   the  Mines    Branch's    investigations,    that  some of these may be found available'  for the economlcal production of carbon      black.      The      Mining      Lands  Branch of the Department of the Interior is at  present'^engaged in, framing regulations   for tlie  production of  carbon  blade" fMin" wells   sTtuated  oh  Dominion lands.      7 "'     '  The Ontario Government, it, is reported, has recently given permission  for the natural gas from a small field  in the Sarnia district to be used for  die, production of carbon black. It is  understood that development will take  place at once. The initial plant will  be of but limited size, and will permit  I of enlargement as the opportunity  arises. ;  The recovery of carbon black varies  from one-quarter to two pounds per  ��������� 1,000 cubic feet of gas, and the market price,ranges from 17 to 22 cents  per pound, with as high as 50 cents  for special grades. The black is  packed in paper sacks for shipment.  %*.  The uses of carbon black are almost  innumerable. One of the. chief uses  is in the preparation of printing ink.  such as this paper is printed with. By  admixture witli oils ot different qualifies nnd consistencies a wide range ot  ink may bo made, from that which is j  termed news-ink to a grade suitable  for the printing of the finest illuslra  tions.  It. Is.also used as a pigment iii the  manufacture ot paint, in which case a  loading material is generally added,  usually bnrytcs. In thn making ot  black polishes carbon black very generally enters, while for phonograph  records, fountain pens, carbon, paper,  black enamel .leathers, etc., it finds  many uses.  In the preparation of the rubber  composition of automobile tiros and  other rubber goods the greatest con-  Humptlon of carbon black 1hir developed. II.

The farm woman of today is not a  mere drudge, says the New . York  ���������Times. Unlike lier sister of twenty-  fire or thirty years ago, her daily  routine of living is not limited to sucft  monotonous tasks as feeding chickens,  milking cows, churning butter, cooking  heavy meals or taking care of children and housework in between  times. True, the cows are" still  there to be milked, the chickens to  be fed, the butter to be churned,  the meals to be cooked, but modern  inventions have so lightened her  burdens that she has time to broaden her horizon. ,,  Red-letter days in her existence  used to mean going to .church or  weekly trips to the village. Her  wardrobe, summer and winter, generally consisted of one black silk frock  for such state occasions as church  funerals or christenings. The remainder of her dresses were calico  frocks conforming more to comfort  than, beauty.  Her-   recreations-   were few beyond  the church-going and funerals.  v The farm woman  of today has rebelled.       She wants for her children  school as good as those city children  attend; she wants good roads, frocks  that are up-to-date,--a home in which  she .will not be ashamed to entertain  city friends;  books and time to read  ���������them.     In short, she seeks relief from  the drudgery of farm life and time to  enjoy its beauty.      What is more, she  is getting her wants before she is a  worn-out "old  woman" of thirty.      If  the    grandmothers    and    mothers    of  many  of  the   farm   women  of  today.  could pay a visit to    the    homes    in  which  tiiey used   to  live  they  -would  hardly recognize them.

Seldom does she ride in a buggy.  Horses are getting to be as much of a  farm curiosity as- in tho city. She  has learned to drive her car and takes  a spin to town whenever she likes, io  go shopping, visit a friend or attend  her club meeting.  Nor does she go to town garbed in  a calico frock. Her dress is tastefully made. Her hat is not a result  of home millinery, but was purchased  at a real millinery store and is in  keeping with the season.  Her state occasions no longer consist of 'funerals and church-going.  She has gone far beyond that. A  country club, in many cases, is near  her home. . She goes there when the  spirit moves. She attends weekiy  meetings of her literary or political  club and frequentl3r entertains Sn  her rural home.  She. is-a graduate ofthe country  consolidated school; the township high  school, and in many instances the  state -- agricultural       school. She  knows good books, pictures and music  and. takes time to enjoy them.  The farm woman of today sees her  children getting educational advant- .  ages equal to their city cousins. Her  daughters are meeting the right sort  of young men. Her sons are having  an opportunity to choose an agricultural career or that of a business or  professional man. Her husband has  more time to" enjoy life with her.  The   writer  visited   a   typical   mid-  western    farm    home    several    miles  from a village that was reached, by a  paved road.      The home was a tasteful bungalow erected according to the  wishes of the farm woman .    All sorts  of labor-saving devices were Installed  to save her time and energy.      There  was a  tennis  court.      She was vice-  president of the village club, chairman  of the committee on civics.      A rural  nurse, through her efforts, visited the  country school regularly.      Her wardrobe was full of" dainty frocks and her  children were well dressed..  The farm was one that bad been  handed down for several generations,  but was being made to pay more than  eyer since the head o������ the house -went  to the agricultural school and learned  to use fertilizers, install more dairy  cows and sheep, and trim his orchard.  "Fifteen years ago," explained the  wife, "we had an average, run-down  middle western farm. John was discouraged and so was I.

A canvass of  Kaslo citizens  got $70, to which   was   added   $5  from the Women's Institute and a  town council grant of $10.  When one contrasts this response  from far less promising centres than  Creston with the local sectarian  offering of $30���������well, to say the  least Oreston sadly suffers in the  comparison.  When it comes  to doing  things  that get us  fame along   -with possible   financial    returns Creston   is  about the best boosted   spot in ths  Kootenays. but   headlines   all   too  seldom adorn paragraphs telling of  Creston's generosity in   good causes  such as the relief of stricken Japan.  All of which   ia unfortunate, because in such   a well-advertised locality in other  matters is   liable to  suffer through    its   failure    to    let  the world know   that its   activities  are not   confined   solely to*serving  selfish ends.

Herds of fifty  thousand head   wore   then   common  on tho western plains of this continent as far south as Utah and as  far north aa Hudson's Bay, and as  many as 100,000 robes wero marketed annually. So easily were these  obtained that whiskey-traders could  ErareTtRRfl   a   robe   for   one   cup of  Iquor.    In   1874   the    North-West  Mounted  Polico,   on   trek   for   the  Rockies, saw sovernl immense herds,  notably near the Swoot Grass Hills,  when  tbe   force   marched   all   day  through   a  herd   of   60,000   which  blackened the horizon.

If you have travelled, Mr. Producer,  it could not have escaped your observation that in all wholesale fruit  distributing centrea there arc from  three to fo iir times-as many wholesale  fruit ho_uses"as would be necessary for  effective and economic distribution.  *.-��������� Alt these, houses are reinforced by  staff of travelling agents crossing an d  re tracking - one another over the  territory until *tbey hare become  obnosious to the busy retailers.  All of these"men have not only  legal, but a nioral right, to deriv������.  a living support from their trade or  occupation for themselves and family  which must be borne by tlie pioducer  and the consumers only.  As manufacturers of these commodities, we are tne- only logical medium  that can step in and demand a more  economical regulation of this misused  opportunity in distribution, by centralizing our support on one or more of  the most reliable and "best ������Kju5pped  houses at the various distributing  centres, and' which will agree to  stabilize the cost of distribution on a  basis of economic-merchandising.  If wce-iH double, triple or quadraaple  the -wholesale business of a house by  eliminating support of auperfious  houses, the cost of wholesale distribution would at least be halved, all of  which would benefit the producers and  thc consumer.  But   we   cannot    be   contented   by  depriving so many of these   wholesale  houses and < their dependents  of Lheir  trade or livelihood without  an honest  effort to place them in cither remunerative occupations   congenial - to  their  training and in   this   I   am   satisfied  that most anv local fruit and product--  organization would  be -well advised to  avail themselves of skilled employees  for scientific preparation and handling  of their ptoducts in the best possible  way for* effective  merchandising,   as  well as a source of supply  for trained  assistance in  establishing ourselves at  all important distributing centrers.

Our baby girl we called Nicolas, after  Mother. I have never heard the name  used for a girl outside of Mother's  family, but there it is fairly common  as far back as we can trace. I like  to think that our family tree once sheltered a survivor of the Armada.  Nicolas was not the least bit like Ru;  pert. She was alway quite healthy*  but she was the tiniest, daintiest little  mite, all sunshine and energy and mischief. And she was quite capable of  crying for no apparent material reason. ���������,' It used to frighten me until I  discovered that she was merely lonesome���������pick her up and she would cuddle her nose into one's neck and  chuckle contentedly, with the big  tears still wet on her cheeks. Strangers were always attracted to Rupert���������  and he loved the spotlight, the young  scamp���������but Nicolas was inclined to be  shy, she seemed as a baby to demand  more of me than Rupert did.  Some people used to say that I played with the babies as if they were  dolls and I a child. But that was by  no means true. I had my times of.  wearying anxiety. In the first place,  I knew practically nothing about the  care of children, had they not been  sturdy little folk, and I blessed with  what the older novelists call "rude  health," I do not know what I should  have done. Grandpa and Grandma  Robeutson were as good as a-^whole  staff of nursemaids, but they were old-  fashioned in their ways and though  Grandma was an angel I could not always agree with her ideas. But I  did my best, and if I sometimes cried  myself to sleep out of sheer loneliness  and fear no one ever knew it���������unless  perhaps Nicolas did, she had an uncanny way of looking at me seriously  for a moment and then "loving" nie  vigorously and stickily.

Dye Faded  Things  New   Again  Edison's Brain Worth  Fifteen  Billion  Dollars  CHAPTER FOUR  I worked until the first of December  and then sent in my resignation. The  twins, bless .them, were born in May.  Murray had been slightly wounded  at St. Julien, and so I had the unspeakable relief of knowing that he  was safe in England when my babies  came. I think it was really harder  for him than for me. I had them,  and he had only the anxiety about me,  and what he called a pardonable desire to see his famil3r.  "'This world is much too big," he  wrote once. "There's a Cockney in  the next bed who is going down to see  'the missus and the little nippers' as  soon as he can get about on crutches.  And here I am, tied up for the duration. I wonder if 'Canada leave' will  ever be invented?"  If he was  somewhat  staggered  by  the knowledge that he was the father  of  an unknown  son and daughter ..no  one ever knew it.      I, had been just a  trifle afraid that he would  not he- as  glad   as  I  was,  but  his  letters, would  have   reassured   St.   Thomas   himself.  His. only  worry  seemed  to be that  I  had too heavy a responsibility to bear  alone, so I  wrote him an irupressiATe,  and more or less true, essay on a woman's  duty  to   her  country,   with   the _  result that. I apparently convinced him.  of my ability to  without    him  front, and not merely living in safety  because of their sacrifice.  Six weeks after my first message  came I received a second one. Murray was a prisoner. To know that he  was alive was something, but we  heard, such awful stories . . . .  Murray says I must forget such things.  A few days later there came a card  from Murray himself, and then a letter. He had been ill, he said, but  was growing stronger, and was very  comfortable. I knew, of course, that  the prisoners' Setters were very strict  ly censored, but how I craved news of  little minds, perhaps they sense more.-the things I so much wished to know?  than we think.  In some ways I was more fortunate  than many soldiers' wives. Murray's  assigned pay and my separation allowance together were less than I had  been earning for myself, but for the  first year the Company gave Murray  half-pay and so I managed nicely.  After that I was a bit short for two or  three months, and when Murray got  his sergeant's stripes I breathed more j  easily. I had drawn on Mother's  Rainy Day Fund when the babies  came, but I had a feeling that it must  not be touched except in an emergency.  Of course I was often told of women much better, off than I who got  money from the Patriotic Fund, but I  felt that if I asked for help while I  could make both, ends meet I was tak-1  ing "money from women whose need  was perhaps greater than  mine.  When the twins were a year old I  thought seriously of going 'back to  work. But one night, while I was  : still undecided, Rupert was feverish  and fretful and the next morning I had  two cases of measles on my hands. So  I concluded that my vocation was to  bring up two children as Well as possible, and I put the temptation away  from me for all time.      A *few weeks  F5r two years and a half I lived on  those letters, torturing myself as I  tried to read between the lines, wondering if the writing were as steady  as it should be, or if it showed physical weakness and nervous strain.  The letters were always the same���������he  was feeling fine, the Red Cross boxes  were coming regularly, I must take  care of myself and the twins and not  worry about him. "I'll make lt up to  you some day," he "wrote more than  once. With variations on this theme  I had to content inyself, and it was  scanty fare for a hungry heart. There  Influence of Ideas on World Cannot be  Calculated  There is one human brain that has  a hard cash market value today, in the  business and industrial world, of $15,-  000,000,000. Billions is correct, not  millions. That is within 20 per cent.  of equaling the value of all the gold  dug from the mines of the earth since  America was discovered.  The brain ts that of Thomas Alva  Edison, who many a time has said  to his cronies, "Well, if worse comes  to worst, I've got a good trade. I  can always make $75 a month as a  telegraph operator and I can live  comfortably on that."  The $15,000,000,000 represents the  present investment in America alone  in industries which are entirely based  on the inventions of Edison or which  have been materially stimulated by his  inventions. Several of the country's  largest industries are included.  All in all, Edison has taken out more  patent's than any other individual. In  "Edison. His Life and Inventions,"  by Frank *Lv Dyer and Thomas C. Martin, a list of more .than a thousand  patents, complete to 1909, covers  twenty-seven pages, aside from 1,239  foreign patents. By 1917, the total  had passed the 1,500 mark even  though in late years Edison devoted  himself chiefly to perfecting his work.  Henry Ford was recently estimated  to be worth $2,000,000,000, if his income from manufacturing were  capi  Dye    or    Tint    any    Worn,  Garment or Drapery  * Shabby .y  Each 15-cent package of-"Diamond  Dyes" contains directions so. simple  that any woman can dye or tint any  old, worn, faded thing new, even if  she has neA'-er dyed before.

Origin Of Many Sea Terms  Admiral   Comes    From   Arabic   Word  Meaning "Lord of the Sea"  The origin of many sea terms is unknown to most people*-^ For instance,  take the word' admiral. Many of us  think of it as a purely English word.  Its origin, however, is "Emir of Bagh," '  Arabic for "Lord of the Sea."    .  "Captain" comes direct from the  Latin "caput," a head; while "mate"  Is derived from the Icelandic "niati,"  which means a companion, or equal.  At first the coxswain was the man  who pulled the after-oar of the captain's boat, then known as a cock-boat.  "Cock-boat" is a Corruption of coracle,  a small round boat \ised for fishing.  Commodore is from the Italian '"coni-  menratore," or commander, and naval  cadet was originalljl the French  "capdet," which has the same origin  as captain. .

This new compound, which was discovered by C,-A. Newel,, a chemist,  is made by blending the chemical constituents of insulin and it is said it  can be produced easier and cheaper  than the ordinary insulin, -discovered  by Dr. F. G. Banting, of Toronto.  A west end XiOndon physician who  has successfully treated diabetic  patients, declares that the difference  between the new compound and the  ordinary insulin is very great.  "Insulin," lie says, "simply supplies  something which helps the sugar in  the. system-to be assimilated and the  patient can keep on taking it but  the new comftmnd supples fresh material which positively builds up new  cells and nature throws off the diseased cells as soon as -there are sufficient new ones to replace them, thus  completing the cure."

UNREFRESHING SLEEP  Economic   Reactions   From   War   and  Other    Disasters     Effect    All  Countries  London's market view of the incalculable Japanese disaster is that its  economic reactions must be serious  and adversely affect practically all  countries.    " ���������  It cannot but be so. The world  has been learning something along  this line from the Great War, and it  33 still sweating in that hard school.  No further back than the San Fran-:  clsco earthquake and fire of 1906 the)  market-places were little disposed to  consider the great destruction of property and absolute loss and setback in  the human struggle for material well- ���������  being. They saw in it rather a new ;  stimulus to productive effort and  quickened employment of labor and  growth in -"prosperity. They noted  the great outpour of ready insurance  money and forgot that it was all being  withdrawn from production elsewhere  and otherwise.  We shall not hear much talk of  this kind about the great Japanese affliction of dispute of its bearing as a  world affliction. The war is beating  another story into the thick human  head. Either capital or labor or both  together cannot be destroyed on a  large scale without serious and far-  flung economic injury..

S. B. Hohold, of Haifa,  Palestine, in the course of an interview at Ottawa.  Rev. M. Rohold said that if the  ���������Egyptian Government decided to sell  he would himself undertake to raise  the money to purchase at that price.  Rev. Mr. Rehold, who is a converted  Jew, was invited to Canada some  years ago by the Presbyterian  Church of Canada to organize and  take charge of the Presbyterian missions to the jews, and for 15 years  w^as in that work.  He built the Christian synagogue in  Toronto and also organized the work  in Montreal and Winnipeg. For the  last four years, he has lived in Palestine, laboring under the British. Society for the Propagation of the Gospel among the Jews.  f Asked as to the much discussed  Balfour declaration as to Palestine  being made the national home of the  Jews, Mr. Heboid said there was no  alternative. He declared' the Jews  were doing wonderful work in Palestine, even providing free education  to Arab children, much to the disgust  of the effendis, or chiefs, who seem to  see in the progress of education the  destruction of cheap labor.  lf You Are Tired Out When You Arise  In the  Morning Read This -  The woman who is tired out, who  aches all over when she arises ia the  morning, who feels depressed most of  the time, needs just the help that Dr.  Williams' Pink Pills can give her���������new  blood arid strong nerves.
