There is excess acid. The  way to correct it is with an alhali,  which neutralizes many times its volume in. acid.  The riglit way is Phillips' Milk of  Magnesia���������just a tasteless dose in  water. It is    pleasant,    efficient,    and  harmless. It has remained the standard "with physicians in the 50 years  since its invention.  It is the quick method. Results come  almost instantly. It is the approved  method. You will never use another  wheri you know.  Be sure to get the genuine Phillips'  Milk of Magnesia prescribed, by physicians for 50 years in correcting excess acids.

With these introductory word-?, W. A. Irwin writes in a recent issue of  MacLean's Magazine, of the tireless efforts being put forth tn the Dominion  Rust ixahoffatory at Winnipeg, and by the research departments of the three  universities of the Prairie Provinces, to develop a rust resistant type of  wheat.    Mr. Irwin proceeds to say;  "Twenty years ago, Manitoba's hard bread wheat was at once tho standard and the envy of tlie world. Last year, more than half of Manitoba's  wheat crop was useless for bread-making.   Why ?   The answer is 'rust.'  "Last year. Alberta produced four-fifths as much wheat on six and a  quarter million acres as Saskatchewan produced on thirteen million ��������� acres.  Why?      The answer is "rust.'  "Last 3'ear, up until Use end cf December, of the wheat from the entire  West, only tlu.rt3--fi.ve per cent, graded Number Three Northern or better, aa  compared with nf ty-five per cent, so graded during the previous year.   Why ?  The answer is 'ruse.  "Last year5 Manitoba produced only 30.000,000 bushels of wheat as  compared with 50.000.000 hushels an 1926. Why? The answer is 'rust.'  "Nor is that the whole story. Since 1907 rust has filched an average of  $25,000,000 a year from the Western wheat grower, a total of half a billion  dollars. In one year, 1916, the loss from rust damage reached the colossal  sum of 5200,000,000. In 1923, 25,000,000 bushels of Canadian wheat that  might have gone out into the markets of the world fell a prey to the rust  scourge. More than that, thanks tc the same scourge, it now is impossible  to grow Marquis: wheat in great areas of southern' Manitoba and those -wlio  know best declare, witnout equivocation, that a similar fate would overtake  all o������ that province and moat of Saskatchewan if this new thrust of "Nature  were allowed toruu its course unchallenged."

Jo bin's? craft was an ancient  one that went back to the Indians. He  was credited with being the originator  of the famous cigar store Indian.  Born*at St. Raymond, Portneuf  county, Quebec, he "was known as one  of the world's greatest carvers. Perhaps hfs most distinctive work, and  certainly his best known one, is his  huge statue of the Blessed Virgin  which towers above Cape Trinity-at  the entrance to the Saguenay River  and is known as Our Lady of the  Saguenay.

It is a medicine chest in itself.  Insurance against losses by hail can be secured, even if the occurrence of  hail cannot be prevented cr controlled. But it has been established that rust  cannot be prevented or eradicated; that there is no bread wheat in the known  world that is immune from rust; that, consequently, the only hope lies In the  development of a type of bread wheat that is rust resistant.  As is pointed out in Mr. Irwin's article, i^is thc same old story of the  pioneer's audacity all over again.    In the beginning, the West couldn't find a  wheat that would grow fast enough to escape the spring and autumn frosts  north of the forty-ninth parallel.   So it called in the plant breeder and made  wheats that would grow fast enough.   Now it's a wheat that won't feed rust.  The story of the campaign now being waged to develop such a wheat Is  an inspiring one. Furthermore, the progress thus far made Is highly encouraging, even though the battle is yet far from being won, or the end of the  stmggle in sight. Dr. Bailey, who has been in charge of the Dominion Rust  "Laboratory In Winnipeg, will "'make no definite predictions, but, he told Mr,  Ei-win, "I think I can say with reasonable certainty that v/c have succeeded  in capturing rust resistance in a bread wheat type. We have several resistant  Unes now, some of them in tho fourth generation, and they seem to he fairly  stable, but we have no guaranteo that they will have satisfactory quality."  It is not in itself sufficient to develop a rust l'esistant type of bread  wheat. Such a type must also be satisfactory from the standpoint of yield  per acre, early maturity, milling- quality, baking quality, and all thc others  demanded by a wheat importing world.

To settle the dispute,  the following test was proposed: Each brew-master was to  consume a gigantic tankard of the beer brewed by his  opponent* after which he was to stand on one leg and thread  a needle.

"The   beautiful  thing  is   that   this  appeal of Christ was not futile?   Instead of repelling men it drew them.  fae actually obtained the men whom  he was hunting for,  not by offering  them worldly. .inducements,    not   by  making such appeals as anybody but  Christ would have made, but by ad-  ���������aressing thie sacrincial spirit in tliem.  and making an appeal to their latent  capacity for heroism. There is ������a wonderful tribute in,   Jesus' ? method ... to  those characteristics in    human    nature Kvhich have never been destroyed, which can answer to the highest  motives,   which   do   not   need   to   be  bought by    any   low   compensations,  but which spring into full life when  appealed to on the. most heroic and  unselfish    plane. We know    how,    in  consequence,  this  exultation in -difficulties, this love    of   hardship,    this  scorn of ease, became the characteristic note of early Christianity. In the  best summary description which Paul  gives of Christian character and manhood, in tlie twelfth  chapter of Romans, we  find him  speaking of- 'rejoicing in,hope;    patient   in    tribula-  tion.'And when he comes to write his  conception of the character    of    the  happy warrior, fwe  find  him  setting  this in the foreground, 'Endure hardship, as    a    good    soldier    of   Jesus  Christ'."���������Robert E. gpeer.  "For whosever would have his life  shall lose it; and -whosoever shall lose  his life for my sake and the gospel's  shall save it," Jesus continued. The  word life and the pronoun it referring  to life, are used in a twofold sense  here. The sentence means: He Whose  only care is to save his natural life  shall lose his spiritual life; and he  who is willing to lose his natural life  for My sake shall find his spiritual  life.

The organizations operating aircraft have grown from'lO in 1925 and  16 in 1926, to 21 in 1927. The mileage  flown has risen from 255,826 in 1925  to S25,0lb in 1927.  . Passenger traffic showed a tremendous, advance, due very likely to the  increasing popularity of short - pleasure flights.  The accident returns for licensed  aircrafts and pilots show a decrease  of one in the number of flying accidents causing death or injury, pf  which there were four in 1927 and  five in i926. These involved fhe death  of two pilots and two passengers-and  the injury, of one pilot and two passengers as against two persons killed  and eight persons injured in 1926.

In tlie City all the street sounds  this Christmas Eve were harsh, cold  and hollow. Street cars clanged ana  shrieked and reared through the Subway y horses' feet pounded on the  pavement like blows on an anvil, and  automobile brakes seemed to scream  in fright and pain. Many a person  turned hastily, expecting to see an  accident, only to find it was just a  car stopping. Cold, gray and hard lay  the city on this day which should be  the brightest of the year.    -  In tho very grayest part of the  day, when the sunlight was fading  and the lamps were not yet lighted,  the snow began weaving its changing  patterns through the -waiting air.

The hurrying bakers' wagons  and coal-carts made frosty music on  the snofev, which in half an'hour had  covered the frozen ground. The Salivation Army captain on the corner  slapped his red-mittened hands together to keep them warm, and  blessed the falling snow because he  knew it would help people to remember whose birthday it was "tomorrow.  As he rapped his cane on the pot ahd  made it ring out its silvery summons,  he called more heartily to all good  Christians to keep the pot boiling.  "Help to" provide Christmas cheer  for all the lonely and homeless In  bur city, he cried, "Too bad for anyone to be hungry br sad tomorrow-  Thank you, Sir���������God bless you; and  you, too, ma'am���������Keep the pot boiling, remember .our Blessed .Lord!

A crippled man on two crutches,  back from the war, stopped to throw  in the coin "which he extracted with  difficulty from his pocket.  "God bless you, brother!" cried the  captain; "your legs may be on the  blink, but your heart is all right���������  God bless you!"  "He has���������-Ho blesses me every  day," smiled tho lame man; 'Tin  lucky to be alive."  "You bet you are!'

A  young  girl with  hair   of   fiery  gold, hat awry,    flushed    face    and  "weary    eyes,    stood   in   a   doorway  across the street.

The  crowd of Christmas shoppers surged  past her, some of them young girls  of her own ago, giggling, scuffling,  Incoherent in their gladness.      She  shffddered as she looked    at    them.  There were young mothers, too, hording excited children who had been to  seo Santa Clans in tho toy department of ono of tho big stores.

The bnow on the **tcc6t muf  fled their footsteps, but the clanging  of the street cars and their piercing  steam-whistles were alarming to her,  and the dual movement of the snow-  falling and the people passing was  confusing. She began to feel dizzy  as she once did when fording the  McLeod River, the rushing water of  which .had turned her head. She  seemed to be.going, going, with the  street and all the people. Then came  a. definite, horrible feeling of alarm.  Slje seized her valise, and went on.  The Army captain, relieved at that  moment by the arrival of the adjutant, noticed her drooping shoulders  as she went past him, and hurried  after her. "ikny I help you?" he  asked ;,twith friendly?interest.  Helmi's lips were dry and stiff, and  she shook her head.  "Have you friends here?"  She shook her head. *  "You can get a room at the, North  Star Rooming House, if you are  looking for one," he said.      "See, it  of the bed with a smile on her face  as if she had won a bet on some  wan that she had a spite at!  "Sure, we thought first it was  wind1 on her poor little stomach she  had, and we "got the nice little hot-  water bottle that Mrs. Kalinski had  ready for her own little Jacob, and  put it in the blanket with her, but  the more I looked at her pretty face,  the more I saw she. intended it for a  grin and nothing inore or less, and  then I told her that with her poor  mother so low, and probably not" another friend in the world, and not a  stitch to her back she had blamed  little to be smilin* at!"  All that afternoon Helmi lay debating, considering, pondering.  Would she go or would she stay. It  seemed a good, place to step out���������  perhaps she might get a chance to  try life again, or maybe would be let  just lie still like this. That would  be the best, just to lie like this where  everything was warm and quiet and  nothing mattered. Though her eyes  were closed tight she could see the  snow f ailing���������-covering her up, weaving, rolling, eddying around her, ancl  burying her deeper and deeper. She  loved the feel of it on her face, which  Was so hot and dry and burning; and  on her heart; which was ��������� so sore;  and she hoped the snow would keep  on falling until her heart would be  "buried so deep she could not feel it  aching.

He noticed that one overshoe  was unbuckled ?and the loose tongue  of the buckle had caught in the hem  of her dress and was tearing it as  she walked..  In her dire need of haste Helmi did  not even know it. Reaching the  "North Star" she walked up the  stairs to the front door and entered  without knocking. Mrs. Maggie  Corbett, * wife of the janitor, who  happened to be coming out &t the  same moment, met her and cried out  in astonishment. "God love you,  poor girl!

Comes   Through  Weak, Watery Blood  Many     people     suffer     rheumatic  pains that qpuld be avoided by building up the blood. Rheumatism comes  with thin, watery blood, and can only  be driven out of the system by enriching and purifying the blood.     To  make rich, red  ffblood   no   medicine  equals    Dr.    Williams'    Pink    fPills.  These pills actually make ? new blood,  driving- out all poisonous secretions,  and creating: a   condition   of   robust  health.   Thousands of rheumatic sufferers can testify to the value of Dr.  Williams' Pink PiUs.     Among them  is Mr. Jos.    A.    Tully,    Bobcaygeon,  Ont., who says:���������"As a worker in the  woods for years I was exposed to all  kinds of rough -wintry weather.    The  result was that I -was finally laid up  with l-heumatism. I coul4 hardly stir,  and was confined to rbed.      Medicine  seemed to have little? or ho effeiet s:hd  the   best   encoiira^-eisient   the   doctor  gave'-xrie' was that with the coming of  warm weather X would be better. But  instead   of   getting   better,   I   grew  worse.     My joints were badly swollen, and vny legs .so stiff they would  hardly support my body.       At this  stage I read that Dr.. Williams' Pink  Pills were recommended for rheumatism and decided to try them.      The  results were beyond my expectations.  After a few weeks the swelling had  disappeared, and the stiffness gradually wore away, and   much    sooner  than I. expected all traces of rheumatism had disappeared.   The next winter when I went Into the wood I took  a supply of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills  with me,  and they Jcept rae  in  the  best  of condition.       My  experience  should give encouragement to other  rheumatic sufferers.*?  You can got these pills through any  dealer in medicine, or by mail at 50c  a box from The Dr. Williams' Medi--  cine Co., Brockville, Ont.
