C.  -e-  Tne   Grandeur   of  AVork  Some very significant, statements appearing recently in the newspapers  and magazines are worthy of repetition, as pointing a moral to all individuals,  communities and nations.  Several of these articles comment on the rapid and strong "comeback"  staged by Germany. Following the signing of the peace treaty the German  people found themselves- relieved of the burden of. maintaining a huge standing army and a large and expensive navy, but on the other hand, they had  sustained the loss of all their colonies, practically all their mercantile shipping, and, like all countries, were faced with the re-organization of their  industries from a war to a peace basis, and, in addition, their whole overseas  export trade had been destroyed. Their money was valueless, and they  were compelled to assume enormously heavy taxation to make good their  losses and pay their reparation bills. Thetre was only one solution to their  difficulties, and that was for everybody to go to work, and work hard and  long. They did so, and now the whole world is witnessing the spectacle  of a rehabilitated Germany which is rapidly becoming prosperous.  Italy, too, was impoverished by the war. Her money was valueless; her  industries in bad shape; her public debt huge, and -many of her people of an  indolent type, preferring to beg rather than work. It appeared that the  whole country would fall into the hands of Bolshcviki Socialists. Mussolini  arose as a dictator and saved the situation by prohibiting begging, ordering  everybody to go to work, and re-organizing the industries of the country and  prohibiting the importation of luxuries. As- a result a new Italy is arising,  presenting a sharp contrast to Russia where industry languishes and is  largely destroyed, and unemployment is everywhere rife.  Probably the two most prosperous countries'���������in the world today are the  United States and Canada, and they are two countries where everybody, generally speaking, is willing and anxious to work, and, in fact, are at work.  The aristocracy of these two nations are the workers, and the men-' and.  women to whom all look up are those who by their own efforts have achieved  a marked success in life. Sometimes it is even charged that in the United  States and Canada the people make top great a go*d of work, but at least  it has brought peace and contentment at home, prosperity, and a high standard of living. / .   * ���������*���������      .        '  Now turn to another picture and. view   conditions  in a  country where,  because of strikes and industrial upheavals, approximately two million men  are not at work.    The prolonged strike of the coal miners in Great Britain  is working havoc in all directions, and not on the miners and mine owners  alone.    Following the general  strike called to assist the miners,  and Which  ended   in   complete   failure,  hundreds   of  thousand.s   of  workers,   other than  miners,       were       unable.,   to     get     employment.       Unemployment    figures  increased over May and June last by over 650,000. Industry in .every line is  suffering, the standard of living has been lowered, and Government revenues  have tailed to such an extent-that the country is fa.ced.with a huge, deficit  this year.    Even Canada suffers because of the inability of the people, to buy  wheat,     butter,     cheese,     and     other   products    we   have   to    export.    The  effect of the miners' strike on thetr fellow workers is further disclosed by.  the announced inabilixj* of the Railway men's  Union to meet the levy made  on it to support the stx*iklng miners. No less than 45,000 railway men have  not   yet.   been   given   employment   since   the   general   strike   in   May   last,  while 200,000  more  are working only  three days   a" week.    The same  thing  is true in scores of industries.  The lesson to be learned from these several sets of conditions is that,  much as people may grumble about their work, and being obliged to work, the  fact remains that in work lies the salvation of the race. All work and no  play may make Jack a dull boy, but no work soon results in^jjioral and physical  degeneration. The weaklings of tho present age on this continent are  the sons, and daughters of the- rich who lack any incentive to work and who,  finding rime hang hea-raTy on. their hands, indulge in all sorts of foolishness  and i-xct'sse^. They are discontented,, unhappy, useless, and fill the night  club.-,   and  divorce   courts. *"*���������  On tht- other hand, real happiness is experienced today by the men and  women who ar������* doing the world's work. Work is their salvation and their  jo.'-'a; and in Th"ir hours of leisure They are both menially and. physically  capable ol" vXTrac-.irig real fun and enjoyment out x*f whatever form their  iia'-ivau-nij "-say i.-ik-*-.

Troubles Caused liy I^i^oushess and Stomach  Disorders Quickly Reliev-ed;    Says  Tanlac Deserves All Credit  Thousands of men and women suf*-.,.  fering from a generally rundown condition will get a message of hop6 and  cheer, froia the experience of Mme.  Joseph Lefort, 468 Chambly Street,  Montreal, whose quick recovery from  a long, . serious illness surprised her  closest friends. If you never feel; quite  up to the mark, if you are fagged  out, you'll be glad to know about Tanlac and Vhat it did for Mine. Lefort.  Hera, is her story.  "Aboilt two months ago, I realized  that my condition was far from good; I  had spells in which,-*-! would, tremble  all over, and I would feel as if my  head would burst. I suffered - from  severe headaches and would be very  sick at my stomach. I was very nervous and. unable to sleep. -  "I was advised to take Tanlac and  the first bottle brought such great relief that I have kept on taking it. I am  now on my fourth bottle and feel like  my old self once more.

Second Cable From s 1  Canada   To   Australia  Proof   That    Building   Up     the  Blood Will* Strengthen, the  Nerves  If you want strong nerves you must  make the effort yourself. You can help  yourself by -refusing to worry, by  taking, the proper rest, sleep and- out-  of-door exercise. For medicine take  only Dr. Williams' Pink Pills which  promptly build up the blood and thus  feed the starved, frayed'nerves.  A case of extreme nervous exhaustion restored by the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills is that of Mrs. R.  Dund.as, Peterboro, Ont, who says:���������  "Some 3*ears ago I suffered a complete  nervous breakdown. I doctored with  two local doctors, but got no relief.* In  fact I was growing worse and weaker  all the time.* In this condition my  mother came to take care of me'and  urged me to try Rr. Williams' Pink  Pills asK she had taken them all  through the change of life with splendid results. At this lime I felt so far  gone that I did not care whether I  lived or not. But the coaxing of my  mother and other relatives finally persuaded me to try the pills. By the  time I had taken a few boxes I was  feeling a little improvement and was  able to move around. As I kept on  taking the pills I felt .myself able to  go out and made a practice of going  to a near-by store every second week  to weigh myself, and I gained rapidly  from 103 to 135 pounds. I continued  taking the pills for several months,  and it is- impossible for me to express  in words* the wonders they did for me.  Nobody but myself knows the tortures  I endured from nerve trouble, and. now,  thanks to Dr. Williams* Pink Pills, I  am a normal, healthy woman. I do not  think anyone troubled as I was can  find a better remedy than Dr. Williams' Pink Pills."  If your dealer does not keep the  pills you can get them by mail at 50c  a box by writing The Dr. Williams'  Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont."  Will   Be   Sunk  a   MileaD^eep  in* Many  Places  Wireless has not been developed to  the point where it will take the place  of the cable spanning the Pacific, and.  so a second cable is to be laid from  Canada to Australia to relieve the  load Being borne by the present single  cable.  Five thousand miles of unbroken cable, eighteen inches in circumference,  will soon slide cut of the hull of the  cable ship Dominia to lie beneath the  ocean between Bamfield> on thef west  coast of Vancouver Island, and the  Antipodes. When this is working drastic "recLuction in cable toils will likely  be made.  Although the circumference of the  cable is -eighteen inches, the wire  through which the actual messages  will be yflashed is barely larger^ than  that used for 'telephone purposes on  land. It is covered with a specially  manufactured 'insulation insuring.it  against breakage and loss of current  in transmission. The cable has to be  well protected as it will be sunk In  places as deSp as a mile.  The cable ship -Dominia was constructed in Britain especially for the  job of duplicating the Pacific cable, it  has been built, to a 'special design to  carry enormous bulk of the cable In  an unbroken line of more than 5,000^  miles. With smooth-working devices  it will feed the snake-like line of covered wire into the sea from Bam field  all the way to Suva, in faji, and from  there the cable duplication has already  been completed.  Physicians say that raw vegetables  sufch as celery, lettuce,, tomatoes or  onions should, appear regularly on the  bill of fare.  The Oil of Power.���������It 5s not claimed  for by Dr. Thomas' Electric OH that it.  will . remedy every ill, but its uses  are so various that it may be looked  upon as a general pain killer.

Much of the country has  been reclaimed from the sea and required the protection of the famous  dykes before it could be turned, to  profitable-account. Nor have the Dutch  people been contents to wage a constant battle with th������> waves in order io  hold what lias been gained. Soon they  will acquire a new province by force  of arms, but no European chahcellejy  will dispute, the Dutch method of acquiring it. , For it will be Avreisted not  from some weaker, state, but from  Father Neptune's undersea domain.  Holland has had its pwn iyederito  region since the twelfth century.  That expanse of salt water abopt  eighty-five miles long and from' ten  to forty-five miles broad, known as  the-Zuider Zee, was **������Tice dry except  for a small inland la-ke, Throughout  the eleventh and twelfth' centuries the  sea kept cutting at it, gales kept blowing its loose, sandy soil away, and the  whole topography of the country was  altered.  Year after year with the skill, determination and patience characteristic of their race the Dutch have been  fighting to regain their lost territory,  foot by foot, inch; by inch. Engineering operations of great complexiiy  have been carried thrcugh to reclaim  ���������it. Gr'eaf dyke3 have been con struct-  adjTaltered, repaired and reinforced.  In the-main the effort has been successful, but they sea is an enemf"" that  never weary s and never becomes dis-,  couraged* and* often in a few hours of  rage it has "been able to undo human  achievements that cost heavy toil anc3  much treasure.* y    '  The area to "be reclaimed amounts  to. more than' liatt a. million acres, and  is expected to provide support for fully  half a million individuals. In a country so thickly populated as the Ne.th-  ymiands this is of considerable importance, fully justifying ihe expenditures  involved. 7 - ';  How long it '-will take to finish the  job cannot be foretold, lt may take  . twenty years longer.

An Aid To Cultivation  Wireless     Has     Brought  Results to English Gardener  There is an allotment at West  Bridgford, two- miles southeast ot' NOt-  tinghaeri', England, where tomato  plants are giving tremendous yields,  out of all proportion to any others in  the locality, where hollyhocks lauen  with _giant bllooms, are approaching  ten feet in height, and where sweet  peas are so prolific that they are the  wonder qf the district says "The London Mail."  The owner, William Boot, who is the  rolling stock superintendent of the  Nottingham Corporation Tramways,  attributes it to the fact that by chance  last year he fixed copper wires, accidentally insulating them, on which to  train his tomato plants. To his aston*  ishfiient these, plants made vigorous  growth  and   the   fruit   ripening  while  j that  on the   plants   of  other growers  j AA-as still green.  Searching for the cause, he said, he  came to the conclusion that he had by  insulating his   copper   training   wires,  Captain Bernier, .for 22 years in the  I polar regions north of Canada ia his  Remarkable.   rusl"V  hoat  Arctic,  which   since liv-i  ilia's cruised hundreds of thousands of  [miles in    the    dangerous    waters    of  Greenland, .Labrador,    Hu-dson's   Bay,  Baffin Land and similar regions, hasn't  given up his faith in the future of the  Hudson's Bay route to Europe.  "I believe it is the route of tomorrow," he told newspapermen in Toronto.  "It will be a great thingJtor tne  north country, if a railway goes in  there and opens it up. I consider the  Hudson's Bay railway, the Hudson's  Bay route and the establishment of u  port on the bay a matter that concerns the West chiefly.  "The people of the West Avill use  the railway, they, will be the ones  that will benefit from it. They should  be the ones to decide on the building  of a harbor.  "Nelson will take a lot of money to  make into a satisfactory port," Captain Bernier vent on. "Churchill is  much better. At ���������Churchill they can  build their sea Avails and so forth on  solid rock' so that it will staA-. At Nelson they can only build on clay which  brought, wireless to his aid in cultivation.    When he developed this theory | means ihat they will haA*e to put in a  foundation first."  Captain Bernier has a profound faith  in the future of the north country. lie  believes that there (are \*ast resources  in mineral and other wealth to be ob-X  tained-by enterprise.  by fixing miniature Avireless aerials,  properly JnsulatcdoA'er other growing  plants he found confirmation of his  theory in the results.  The aerials stimulated growth in a  manner .which leaves all other fertilizers behind.

The Athabaska.brigades, paddling up  the Clearwater and packing their burdens across the Methye, or "long"  portage, fallowed this famous route to  Hudson Btiy. It is a^-decictedly picturesque route. Unlike the Saskatchewan which retains its uniformity  throughout, the Churchill becomes a  series of crystal lakes, nestling anions  hills of granite, dotted with myriads or-  beaulifui islands, and connected by  short stretches of river proper.

But  for boats that are built like my own  Arctic to stalid a certain amount of  bumping around, boats like the whalers, and so forth, a season of from  four to five months ought to be possible."  Captain Bernier has noAV completed  his 60 th year, at sea. "I Inwe lieen a  captain for. 5^ years,*^he said. "I Avas  captain at  17���������pretty young, eh?"  His one regret is that ."he Avas never  able _ to make the North Pole expedition! He "was all ready to set out in  1904, hd'says. He^had proA-isions arranged for six years, and plans worked out to the minutest detail. But  something came along that disrupted  his schemes, and now he is afraid it  is too late. "I wouldn't. laiijid setting  out now," he confided, "if B thought I  could last long enough to carry it out  successfully."  Captain Bernier has had the remarkable luck of cruising around in the  dangerous north 22 years and never  having a serious accident with his  trust-.- ship. "In time, by Avatching  the action or the ice, ono comes to  ha\-e a wonderful knowledge of it," he^  said. "The important thing for an explorer to learn is that he must AA-ork  with nature.

We fully appreciate the fact that  there are still those who will be  able to take pencil in hand and  demonstrate to their own satisfac  tion. at any rate, that the canyon  can be made a money maker, but the  outsider refuses to see it that way���������-  and as it * is outside capital we  must have to develop the canyon���������  we might as well be practical and,  for the time being forget the can  yon, and look elsewhere for our  electric supply.  Recently Creston had a visit  from the manager of Jthe Brother-  ston Electric Company, Limited,  Calgary, a firm that, has made  quite a name for itself installing oil  burning plants, and after a look  over the village Mr. Brotherston  submits the following letter:  We find in going over the notes we  got in Creston that you have in  town a possible 165 connections.  This would give you about 125 connections to start on if the town is  with you in this enterprise.  This should give you a peak load,  at the start of 22 k.w. The equipment that we suggest is as follows:  50 h.p. semi Dissel oil engine.  80 k.w. 3 phase 60 cycle 2200 volt  generator complete with switch-,  board and ground detector.  Three phase 2200 volt distribution  line. No. 8 primaries and No. 6 secondaries, 35 foot poles���������or as required to meet conditions.  3 5 k.w and 2 3 k.w. transformers.  20 street lamps.  This will give you st indard equipment,  so that in case of future development it would - not be necesss-  sary to make any alteration to your  distribution system.  We can supply you with the  equipment as above, all labor and  material supplied* by us, all new  equipment of the best iwuke, at a  cost not to exceed $10,500.  You would need in addition to this  a power house to house the plant,  wbich could be built for about $700.  You would also need abouj 100  meter-?, which will cost yod $9.35  each, or another .$035���������this would be  allowing you a few small connections to be on a flat rate.  This does not include the connecting from pole lines to houses, but  these could be paid direct by tbe  consumers.  These figures could be lowered  considerably by the use of a secondhand generator, but we have not the  price on one tit the time of writing.  We belie ye that the price could be  reduced to about $10,500 by the use  of some used equiyment. Anything  of this nature we would overhaul in  our own shop and put in first-class  shape.  Plants of this description ore  meeting with great favor in the  villages on the prairie that are  ambitious to have light and must  obtain    it    from   a    steam    plant.  Only this month the village of  Stavely, Alberta, a place smaller  than Creston,? commenced operating a plant of this, sort and our  information is that "the council of  that place is running the plant  from dusk iri the afternoon until  2 a.m., and from 6 *a.m. "until broad  daylight in the morning and householders have been assured that the  light bill will not exceed $2.50 per  month for  a five room house.    In  'v.  addition to this service it is  arranged that the plant will also  run one morning ands one afternoon a week to take care of wash  days and ironing, and where the  "juue" is needed after 2 a.m. by  paying .. t the rate of $3- an hour���������  $2 of which goes to the village and  $1 to the electrician���������the light can  be had for as many extra hour$ as  is desired.  Tbis Stavely proposition will  give some idea ef service and cost  and Creston should be no higher, at  any rate, due the faot that Creston  is a size or two larger than Stave*,  ly, and with more users"* the cost  should be just a little less to each  consumer. And whilst we are  talking Staveley it will not come  amiss to point out that sis: weeks  after the contract was let the plant  there was in operation.  This fall, more strongly than  ever before, is heard the argument  that if Creston is even   to  hold   its  eg  own it must have three things:  Electric light, a better water  supply, asu & sswerage system.  Most all are agreed that electric  light is the more pressing of the  trinity of necessities.  Every possible eflfbft has been  made to get action on the canyon  and without even a lingering hope  "of success. The Review believes  the immediate hope is with a plant  such as we have outlined above'  procured from any firm that oan  give the best assurance of satisfaction.     Doubtless   Review    readers  have still'something just as good,  or even ybetter, to offer, and we are  hoping to hear from them all in a3  short a -form as it ia possible to  state the case. And when all the  facts are presented let's have an  end to the talk and get on with  installation.    ......  The Consolidated Company is  -reported to be preparing plans for an  enlargement Of operations at Moyie  that will necessitate spending $200,000.  This addition will enable them to  treat part of the Kim perl ey ore at  Moyie.  At Grand Forks the curfew bell law  is compelling some of the older boys  to take to auto joy riding in the  country districts after 0 p.m.. and the  tricks they arfe up to will get them  into the police court, according to the  Gazette.

Since the. beginning of the<" strike in'May, it had been  difficult to secure sufficient coa* in  British ports.  In presenting the models to Mr.  Han-is he stated they were built by  the builders of the ship they were  standing on���������the Cairnesk, and presented to the League as mark of courtesy and recognition of the excellent  work of that orgafiization. The Snowdrop was formerly popular on the St.  Lawrence*; and for many years carried  timber between Quebec and Sunderland. The Cairntorr, the other model,  was lost by enemy action dux*ing the  war.  Mr, Sam Harris replied on behulf of  the Navy League of Canada, whoso  aims and objects he oul lined.. The  models, he stated, would admirably  serve to remind Canadians of their  debt to the British Navy and Merchant  seamen, and keep before them in the  strongest fashion the value of sea  safety. Among the many useful activities of the League, he said, was the  maintenance of Sea Cadets, who were  tx*aincd. for a life at sea and other  occupations under their auspiees. In  tho summer they were* provided wfth  camping facilities.  Funds had been raised to build  headquarters for The League containing a musuem, in which models such  an tho present ones, and relics of the  historic past, might bo displayed! to  tho public and to the sea cadets.  Mr. Harris' paid tribute to tho enterprise of the Cairn line of steamships,  nnd referred feelingly and enthusiastically to his meeting Sir William  Nolilo and Major Cairns, heads of the  Line, when he wns In England in 1923  speaking in the Inlore.st.'.. of lhe Navy  League In Britain.

This extraordinary - movement, reported by fishermen at many points, is  the result of torrential rains which fell  during the last few weeks, particularly  along the exposed west coast of Vancouver Island.  Thousands of newly formed rivulets  running into ''the sea, have made it  fresh. At least the* surface of^ the  ocean for miles has teen 'robbed of  all its saltness.

She- carries it off as it/she  had been born to masquerade!" Iveniil-  worth exclaimed-, yit was "nbt Roddy's  habit to enthuse over a woman except  in her, presence. He consldred it a  spendthrift waste of energy. Brandon  shot a sharp glance at him. He noted  that Roddy was rigid, his lips slightly  parted, nnd that lie breathed-heavily.  Joanna moved down the stairs slowly, a softly graceful figure that was  taunting in its suppleness nnd the flag-  rnneo of Its challenge to women In  that room who would have yielded  much of whatever was precious to  them to havo caught from * her tlie  least of her fascinations���������- tho least of  theyJieautieR her ooSfhienT arrogance  emphasized.  Someone, a man, clapped his hands.  Immediately anolher leaped toward, the  Bteps. Teddy Pormlnster broke away  from Brandon, and Kenilworth, and  John, and swept 3mat Yvonne, boating  bin rival to .tho girl's side. Before she  knew "In p'urpeiF*- Teddy had caught  her up In his rirnis. For an instant  her eyes Hashed and sho 'gave signs of  scrambling to her feet, but she smothered tho lm*pulflo.

A.woman, who  stood behind -John and Brandon said  to her companion loud, enough to he  overheard: 7      ��������� '.  "One of Teddy's best points is that  he can love a woman as He has carried  tliat one, without mussing her." John's  face.grey"- a little yvfrhiter, and his fingers twitched nervously:    He saw that  when Teddy had put her- down his arm  lingered for- a moment    around    the  J������*irl* .that he  held her  close  to him  while he whispered and that Joanna  brushed his  cheek with  the back  of  her hand playfully;;  The woman whgm  Jplinyhad i oyerl|eard y spoke    again:  "Teddy is beginnings a cajnpaign. He  always does it with a whisper. Whoever1 this girl is, and whatever she is,  there  are  some-people   here   tonight  who   will   hate  ht-r���������if  Teddy   shows  signs of following up  that little tableau!"  John turned-to look at the speaker. She returned his glance and started at what she saw in bis face. Then  she was amused. She said something  to her companion, a man who quite  . evidently, yirouid not be her husband.  He surveyed John curiously. He spoke  to his companion in; a low tone. "Yes.  You are probably right. He's in love  with the girl. Odd looking chap, but  one who would; make trouble if he felt  like it."      "'  Both Brandon and John sought to  make their way to where Joanna  .stood,"the centre of a throng of men  and .women, sbme fascinated, as was  Teddy Dorminster, by her anxious  beauty and freshness, and! others paying their sycophantic dues to Yvonne  by.fawning upon her protege. But  neither reached her side before she  Vas whirled into a dance by Lord Teddy. He surrendered her, after a few  turns, to others who pressed forward  for tho privilege..  Men were fulsome in their compliments.    The mystery of her was the  Intriguing subject to which everyone  led along the route of intimate,  personal things: things tlie men murmured softly while she swayed close with  them to the music,  or whispered  so  that her cars  alono  caught them. It  had been doeidod* by Yvonne that the  history of her feuddeh''Shower of gold  from  an unknown benefactor  should  not  be  told.    Kenilworth   ahd   Brandon, and tho few others of Yvonne's  intimates who- know, agreed  to Keep  the secret..   Dorminster had. not boon  taken into anyone's confidence as to  Joanna's wealthy  Tho men who made  their tlototlons To her, and iho women  who   woro   curiously   pleasant,   soon  pmmwqmmmmmmmmmmsm0m*mi*mm*mmmmwm\im u^\mmsmmm0S0im^  gave up their efforts toy fathom her af?  ter failing in such hints as: "Have you  known Yvonne Coutant a: very long  time?'Do you belong in New York," or  are yp_u from elsewhere?" The in,en re-  turnd gleefully to their sentimental  venturings. .7     ;j        >  When a score of toasts in punch had  been drunk, to herv and sjbe' had flitted  from one pair, of amrs to another, in  the dancing, Joanna became conscious  of an unfamiliar quality in the  murmured admirations heaped upon her.  She had. been accustomed to the tentative probings of the boys in her old  crowd, and    their. frankly    said    and  usually    sincerely    meant    flatteries,  "You're a swell girl!" was what she  had learned to expect.    Her acknowledgement customarily was prompt and  was  perhaps;   "Is  that  the best  line  you've got?" She knew the danger of  the-threat^ or the safety, in every compliment, as her    dancing    boys    paid  them,  ahcu usually  she  guided   them  well away from  the. edge.    But now  she  felt  that her  wits must  grapple  for new understandings;      The    men  who captured her for a few fleeting  moments  sung their  adorations in a  more elusive  melody.    The words  of  their  praises   seemed   harmless;   but  she sensed new meanings. Roddy Kenilworth took    both    her    hands    and  held her a little way from him, and  iqpked at her.    All that he said, was:  "You are very pretty tonight. That  dress yoh are wearing must have been  created just for you by a really great  artist" *���������' '  Nothing more.      Yet    Joanna    was  conscious that she trembled, and conscious, too, that she hadr been faithful  to  the  present  day  mode  which   required* tliat underneath that dress she  wear but a single garment, so delicate  and sheer that it almost blended into  her skin.    Roddy  said, only that she  was  pretty  and her dress becoming.  Yet she xmderstood that the man who  was speaking, and who had bantered  her but. a few nights before with the  threat of his pursuit of her, already  wanted   to   take   her  slim  body "into  his arms and crush it. She decided siie  w-ould "have to strengthen her battlements.    She had learned to make her  "lips provocative, and  use her knowl-  edage bodily and saucily.    She had the  sense that in this order Of life, so different  from  the   domain of  the   silK  counter  and its    flirtations,    it    was  much more dangerous to be provokfng.  ���������'���������;' (To "be continued)  -eases ended la death!
