After the supper  a concert under the chairmanship of  Mrs. Geo. Cartwright, president of the  ladies' aid, was held in the church  auditorium.  The opening number was a medley of  several .of the war-ballads sung by the  choir. ( Representatives from Camp  Lister added greatly to the enjoyment  of the program. These included MrB.

Ia sixteen i*9_ars fairly close  reading of newspapers the Keview  has never yetr read or heard of  any community being able to  secure a hospital on such favorable terms as those under which  the local institution becomes the  out-and-out property of the new  hospital association.  In addition to advantageous  terms the ^Review cannot too  strongly emphasize the fact that  .the hospital is fully modern in all  its appointments and equipped  with all the _node___. appliances  for every branek Of hospital work.

In addition to this the availability of the X-.'ay has enabled  very many people to secure relief  locally from ailments that would  have cost, many hundreds of  dollars had they been compelled  to go elsewhere���������-something more  than a few were unable to do for  financial reasons.  And that the utmost of satis  faction has been given both in  service as well as charges must be  evident in the fact that to date  nothing but high praise has been  heard of the hospital conduct.  And let us again emphasize the  fact that it is a public hospital to  a  CUaf-O-l  .X*_"__'^.  h^ the citizens, and any qualified  doctor can use the hospital and  its equipment.  In contemplating the value of  a hospital right here in our mJ.dst  it is well to reflect that for emr  ergency cases such as brokrn legs,  arms, huntings or auto mishaps,  prompt hospital care may well  mean the saving of lives. Arid  much the same thing will apply  in the case of sickness where  home treatment may not be as  satisfactory as that obtainable at  a hospital, and the latter (in the  past) out of the question due to  financial considerations.

Automatic 'Phone For Blind  Slsc  Is Fitted   With  Hssmbers and  Letters. -������ S'al.Ie  No sooner have people become accustomed, to the automatic telephone,  where���������on a ring with holes for letters and figures, they find the wanted  number for themselves, than another  invention comes in sight. This is the  In times of depression, unemployment, hard times, national disaster,  there is always a tendency on tlie part of suffering people to demand a  revolutionary change in prevailing conditions, and this demand not infrequently takes the form of an agitation not merely for a change of government, but In the form of government itself. Far away fields usually look  green, much greener than those close at hand, and far greener than is  actually the case. Thus in monarchies the cry is raised in favor of a republic; in republics an agitation is started to supersede the democratic form of  responsible government by a form of state socialism; in socialist republics   automatic  telephoneT" for  the    blind  the demand is for the establishment of an out-and-out communistic state.  Because Canada, *~������ common 'with other countries Is s___erinpi' fTvrm the  existing period of world-wide depression, unemployment, and inability to  profitably market Its surplus products, the cry of secession is raised. A  Provincial Prime Minister,. Mr. Baxter, of New Brunswick, was the first to  give voice to the idea at this time, thus reviving an old cry in the Mari-  tlmes. He did not openly advocate the secession of his Province from Confederation, but iaa-view of the continual loss by the Maritimes of industries  and financial institutions through their removal to the central provinces of  Quebec and Ontario, he asked the question whether New Brunswick would  not be better off if it withdrew from Confederation.  In Western Canada the same question has "been raised at meetings of  farmers who, apparently, are not satisfied with the economic relationship  existing between the east and west, and are not in accord with the fiscal  policy which finds favor and strong support in the industrial centres of  Ontario and Quebec. They, therefore, advocate the secession of the West  from Confederation and the setting up of a new and separate British  Dominion which, would enjoy complete freedom of choice -in the matter of j  fiscal policy. In a word, they hold that a fiscal policy wlrch may be advantageous to the central industrial provinces is not in the interests of the  agricultural western provinces, and that inasmuch as it is impossible to have  two fiscal policies, one for the east and one for the west, the best thing to  do is to separate politically and build up twb British Dominions instead of  one on the North American continent.  Such radical ideas do not flourish when times are good and people prosperous. It is only when people are discouraged and suffering loss, and conditions look dark and desperate, that such suggestions are advanced and  receive more or less consideration.  But secession is not the path which the people of any part of Canada  should travel. The Dominion has passed through many grave crises. It has  weathered many a storm. It has grown stronger as a result. In its very  unity is to be found strength, not only for the whole but for each provincial  unit.      Linked together all the provinces are stronger financially, and' in  which the Paris Post Office has designed. Over the ordinary disc another ring is fitted, with numbers and  letters in Braille. The blind person  can easily slip it over the disc, and  then is able to find letters and numbers with as much ease as those who  are blest with sight can.

The genius of the Canadian people can surmount the existing difficulties;  It may require patience and fortitude; it certainly will demand a large  degree of patriotism and unselfishness. There will have to be less insistence on the part of any one section of the Dominion that their views alone  must prevail. There must be more widespread acceptance of the fact that  the economic position of east and west is radically and fundamentally different; that while they are the complement one of the other, neither can  prosper and survive if one alone is to dominate and seek to control. Insistence on any such bl?nd and selfish programme must end in disunion.  But Canada is yet a long way from an impasse where the only way out  is secession of either the Maritimes on the one hand, or the Western provinces on the other hand. Central Canada cannot prosper without the  business which tlio far eastern and the far western provinces give to It, and  inasmuch as it is the western provinces that are suffering most acutely  today, and are least benefited by the fiscal policies which Central Canada  prefers, it would seem Inevitable that Central Canada must modify its views.  Instead, howevr, of talking or even thinking secession at this time, the  whole thought and energies of our people, east, west and central, should be  devoted to the patriotic task of working out a compromise policy which;  while giving ne'ther eaat, west nor central all that they may desire, will,  nevertheless, work neither hardship nor injustice to any part, but will give to  one and all a fair-handed deal and equality of opportunity to develop their  own re-sources and businesses along leg'timato lines. /  We have differences in outlook, different problems, different Ideas as to  policy for thc solution of those problems, but wo are inherently ona people,  with a common past and a common future. Our greatest g,a!n and our permanent prosperity lies in strengthening, not weakening our union.

At such a time Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills will be found most valuable.  They purify and enrich the blood:  build up the, nerve cells and correct  run-down conditions. Concerning them  Miss Margaret Torrey, Indian Road,  Toronto, Ont���������, says: "When I was attending h'gh school I suffered a complete breakdown. My heart would palpitate at the least exertion; I could  not sleep and nothing I ate agreed  with me. I began taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and before long*I  gained in weight arid every distressing* symptom left me."  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are sold by  medicine dealers or by mail* at 50  cents a box from Thte Dr. Williams'  Medicine-Co., Brockville, Ont.

The agreements were negotiated in accordance with the terms  of the Hague protocol accepting the  Young plan.  New Lavinff Record  Africa Taking the Lead  As  Women   Havo   Been   Appointed.  Members Of Church Synod  A remarkable thing has happened  in the Church in Uganda. It has been  decided that 12 African women shall  have places at all future synods. England has'grown used to the idea of a  woman Cabinet Minister, and England  will not be startled by the thought  of women on an ecclesiastical council  In Africa; but Africa Itself is startled.  For long years the African woman  has been regarded as little better  than a beast of burden. In some parts  of the world a woman may not even  eat In her husband's presence. But  now African women are to be members of the- synod, along with three  kings and many great chieftains.  Working On Telephone Line  British.    Columbia    Starts.

The importance of the new line  from a Dominion standpoint is that  at the present time, telephone calls  from "Vancouver to Eastern Canada  have to be routed across the United  States, via Seattle.

Following suggestions thrown out  by the minister some months ago  the price of bread v/as reduced by  about 20 per cent, or a iittie more  than two cents a Joaf on the average over the whole of Canada. The  price of flour, however, did not come  down and the opinion was expressed  at the department of labor that the  next step must come from- the milling  companies.  Senator Robertson laid the results  of his investigations before the cabinet meeting and afterwards announced he was calling a number of leading  millers Into consultation to see if  something could not be done to lower  the price of flour. With wheat how at  about 60 cents a bushel flour is selling  at approximately the same price as  when wheat was $1 a bushel.  Should an investigation under the  Combines Investigation Act be ordered it would be the most extensive inquiry of the kind ever held in Canada. Owing to^the wide ramifications  of the milling and baking industries  the Inquiry would have to be' nationwide in scope. For this reason it  would take considerable time.  Ia order to secure prompt results  andv to avoid embarrassing any industry " the government prefers to  enlist the co-operation of the. interests concerned. Should this prove  effective as it did in the case of the  baking concerns no action would be  taken.,- Should it_fail, however, the  information and machinery necessary to setting an investigation under way at short notice is in readiness, "'   .���������  Many, complaints -in connection  with the price of bread have been  received by the government and  through quiet but vigorous investigations a mass of authoritative, information has been accumulated.  The government is fully aware of  the importance of keeping bread  prices down to a minimum.. The  daily consumption of bread in Canada runs to about 3,000,000 loaves  and a reduction of only one cent a  loaf would mean- an immense saving-  to the Canadian people.

It is an exceedingly strong statement and  one that will give the public of  Canada new heart regarding the  condition of business in their  country. We know that business  is below the records for 1928 and  1929, but the trouble with most  of us is that we think it is so far  below that there is no virtue in  comparison.

The article reads, ia part:���������  "Recently excitement lias been  created by reports that the Russian  ���������authorities had. bs en \ selling short on  the Chicago market, and sales aggregating something over 7,000,000  bushels are said to have been traced.  "Everybody seems to have forgotten that only a few weeks ago charges were made that the Canadians  were selling short on the Chicago  market. The truth about it all is  that Chicago is the greatest hedging  market for wheat in the world. Traders, dealers, millers of all countries  use it to hedge their regular business  transactions because- it lead3 in volume of trading.  "It has bean said, as conclusive evidence of irregularity in the Russian  transactions, that it would be wholly  impracticable to deliver Russian  wheat in Chicago. Hedging operations  on the Chicago market seldom con-  | template the shipment of wheat to  Chicago, but are usually covered by  local purchases. A miller who has  bought wheat for conversion into  flour may sell an equal amount of  wheat for future delivery in Chicago,  but without expecting to ship wheat  to Chicago. He is protected in the  manufacture of flour by tlie fact that  if wheat declines in the meantime he  probably will gain enough on LIms  short sale to enable him to write  down the cost of the flour and so  meet the terms of a competitor who  has bought wheat later than himself.

The map affords a comprehensive  idea of the location of Canada's  mines; water power, developed and  undeveloped, fisheries, various types  of farming, and other outstanding  resources. It is of such convenient  size as to bo suitable for ready  reference, and should prove of  value to educationalists, business  men, ancl, in fact, to all those who  are connected with, or interested in  the development of Canada's' resources.

Cancellation is effected by buying offsetting contracts, sales and  purchases washing each other out in  the settlements.  "A buyer of wheat in Canada or  Argentina, who does not yet know  whether he will sel! ..in Liverpool,  Amsterdam, or Genoa, may make a  hedge sale on the Chicago market for  protection against fluctuations until  he can negotiate for the disposition  of his Argentine purchases. When he  has done this he will close out the  hedge operation in Chicago by buying against his previous sale. He aims  to eliminate the risk of fluctuations,  but save a dealer's profit.  "It should be understood that every  contract is a bona fide and legal contract for delivery at a fixed date, and  must be met at maturity, btat obviously a contract to sell requires that unless the seller is already in a position  to make the delivery he will have to  acquire the commodity by the date  named. Hence every such sale as the  Russian government is said to have'  made imposes th������ necessity of finally I  malting a corresponding purchase in '  this country. Every short sale requires a purchase, and although a'  sale and purchase of equal quantities j  of a given commodity at different  dates may not exert precisely the  same influence upon the market, there  is no way of knowing in advance  whether the sale or the purchase will  count most heavily.

I've made a mountain out of a mole hill, just because  the" boy's mind wandered when he  saw that woman across the street.  I'm an old fool J It's none of my business anyway." And with that comforting conclusion he went home to  his Mary.  But later, when he' and Mary  strolled through their garden, discussing the blighted pansies, his mind  went back to Nick. He wondered if  the boy. were strolling in another garden beside the blue-clad woman.  "Mary," he said, "have you met  those people who bought Selina  Smith's old house?"  "No. They haven't been to church,  and I supposed they were hardly settled enough for callers after all  they're doing to the house. I'm go-  ing to transplant some of those hollyhocks, Johnny; they're too crowded.  Would you put them on the east side  of the garage, or near the wall?"  "I wish you'd _ call," answered her  husband with irrelevance.  "Call? Oh, you mean on Mrs. Halliday? Have you met her?"  "Yes. Nek Introduced mc as wo  passed thc house."  "And you like her looks? But she's  young, Johnny, Perhaps she wouldn't  want an old woman calling on her.".  John Maxwell laughed.

Johnny,'' replied  his placid companion of fifty years,  "but iff I can save you the price of a  detectiye I'll take the,: Job!' Come,  dear, we must go In; It'a getting  damp". ,,.'  It was also getting damp tn another garden, a garden on Elm  Street, where four people stood near  a bed of peonies. Could John Maxwell  have seen the group he would have  been relieved, for if Nick were standing near his captivating neighbor, her  husband was there also, as well as  Gay. It was she who broke a silence  that for some reason had become constrained.  "Nick���������I don't like leaving the ba-  bjes any longer. They might wake  up."  "But I haven't shown you the plans  for, my rose garden!" protested Mrs.  Halliday. "I've painted in the colors,  and it's quite charming. Do come in.  It will take only a moment; or, if you  must go, Mrs. Hastings, perhaps your  husband will stay and see it?"  She turned to Nick, lifting eyes  that were almost childlike in their  pleading. Her husband was watching,  and a faint smile hovered on his lips,  a smile that was, somehow, not pleasant to see.  "No," Nick answered, "we'd better  be getting back; though if Sonny  called us we'd have, no trouble hearing! He has the diaphragm of an elephant."  He cast a reluctant glance toward  a far corner where the roses were  some day to grow. It was a glance  not lost on Mrs. Halliday, on her husband, or on Gay. There flashed  through her mind, the memory of another night in May, when Simeon  Bartlett had given his advice. The  words: "Give him plenty o' rope to  run on," came back to her with  strange vividness. She turned to Nick.  "You stay, dear," she said generously. "It won't take two to listen  for the baby; and I know how-much  you'd like to see those plans."  Halliday, still a spectator, shrugged  his shoulders as if he washed his  hands of some-invisible affair. His  eyes were on Gay now. They lighted  with a smile, half cynical, half pitying, __a she extended a friendly hand  in parting- with her hostess. Then,  had anyone been watching, they  would have seen a vast amusement  sweep his face, For Nick also,  stretched out a hand.  "Good-night, Mrs. Halliday," he  said quietly. "I'll see the plans some  other evening, if I may. This wife of  mine is; a rank coward when it comes  to going into a dark.house alone! :T  can't desert her. Good-evening, Halliday."  He nodded to the lady's husband,  and tucking Gay's arm within his  own, turned toward the street.  For a moment Angela Halliday  watched them, surprise in her eyes,  an ugly little frown furrowing her  brow. Then her husband laughed: a  low, irritating laugh, and said:  "Didn't work th's time, did it, old  girl?" He stretched lazily, and moved  toward the house. There he turned  and added; "Seems rather fond of  that stupid little wife of his. Better  le him alone, my dear; Remember the  Ashless?"  She wheeled on him furiously.  "You beast!" Even in her anger she  spoke softly. "I loathe you!"  She went past him, inside, and  slammed tho door.  nothing else. Out of pure curiosity 1  read one this afternoon, and it depressed me terribly.

Nick grinned into the starlight.  "Not jealous, are you?

Nick laughed, but the laugh didn't  ring exactly true, and for some reason she couldn't quite define, Gay  moved a space away.  (To Be Continued).  Progress Of Broadcasting Is Almb-t  ' Beyond.

An Automatic Machine <_un  Is There a Baby  _  Rngby Played By Romans     t  Game Was Not Introduced By Rugby  School As Supposed  The birthplace of Rugby football is  generally accepted to have been Rugby School, but the game really goes  back farther than that.   The Romans  played it in the time of Caesar and it  is thought that they copied it from  the  Greeks. They called it "harpas-  tum," a Greek   word    meaning    "to  seize." It was  so called because  of  the efforts of-the players to seize and  carry the ball from their opponents  and in this respect    the    game    rc-  cembled the modern game of Rugby,  tn harpastum the players were divided into two bands. Behind each side  was a line drawn. Between them was  another line and the ball was thrown  up on th's line, the' two sides then  striving to carry it over their, opponents'   line.   No   doubt   the   Romans  brought the game into Britain, for in  the ancient town of Ctasster  a ball  game was played which closely resembled Rugby. It is also chronicled  that the first game was played with  the head of  a Dane who had been  captured and slain.      In tho Tudor  period the game had made such headway that a statute was issued forbidding it as it became a serious hindrance to tho practice of Archery.

If Button Is Pressed It Will  Go on  Firing Indefinitely  A Scandinavian engineer h������s i.isfc  perfected an admirable little machine  gun which is capable of firing a thousand bullets per minute.   The betfuty  of this ingenious mechanical contraption lies in the fact that it requires  nobody to sit behind it to do the firing. The gunner, in fact, may be sitting comfortably in a cafe hundreds  of  miles  from  the  danger zone.  If  only he presses a button the machine  goes on firing and sending people to a.  land where  there  is no    war.    Airplanes without pilots raining destruction on cities, and machine guns without  gunners,   it  begins  to  look  like  the beginning of the end. For obviously every state will, try to get hold  of as many of these machine  guna  as possible. And once they-have the-  required number, and war breaks out/  there will be no armies to face eaclr  other,   just   automatic  naanless   machine guns firing away at each other*  If that ever happens men will perhaps realize how useless    it    is    to  spend   astronomical  sums   of  money  for cannon and tanks.
