SI  4������       **  Red Rose Orange Pekoe is  you can  mi  In  clea  Mi.  bright Aluminum  Wko ^W'ants War ?  Premier Baldwin Never  Contributes  To  Press  VSn& "Never TtAAn. -ABleed But Hones  Me Will Be  That Premier Baldwin occupies a  sonaewhat tjinique distinction among  cabinet ministers in that he has never had a single biff^r of any kind to  contribute to the press, was revealed  by Mr. Baldwin in a speech at a  luncheon given to* Viscount Burnham.  "I might produce something," the  Premier said, smiiingiy, "that if not  worth a penny a line mig*ht at least  be'worth a pe-iany a mile," he remarked. When lie retired from public life, he added, he would like to  feel that one kind hearted person, had  once made him an offer so������that he  could see his own stuff in print with  Tlie statement, has been made so frequently, and with such vigor that  St is the capitalist class of the world which has been responsible for war be=  tween nations, that many people have become convinced of its truth. And it  Is probablyjuue that some of the wars of the past have been the direct result  of greedy men seeking to further their own schists, ends. To what extent  capitalists have been responsible for past wars it would be difficult to say,  but, with the experience of the last Great War, and the disastrous eftects on  industry and work commerce which resulted, both during the continuance of  the conflict and in the years that have followed, it is safe to say that Capital  has learned its lesson, and today the whole influence of the financial and industrial world is thrown into the scale in favor of continuing Peace.  A strange picture is, however, presented by the one country in which  those who are loudest in thehvoutcry against the capitalist class are in full  control, namely, Russia. In no other country is Capital so strongly denounced  as in Soviet Russia. The Soviet leaders regard Capital as the source of all the  world's difficulties and sorrows. At its door they lay the "major crimes of the  world. The revolution under Lenine and Trotsky had for its object, not the  overthrow of the Czarist Cover'intent, for it had already fallen, but. the overthrow and complete destruction of Capital, and in their campaign against tbe  capitalist system they held it to be responsible for war and the sufferings and  losses which war always entails.  Today, however, under the leadership of the Soviet, Russia is the roost  militaristic country in the world,���������the one chief place of danger to the  peace of the world. Recently a first-hand picture of the military  spirit of Russia was given by one who is friendly to the professed ideals of the  Soviet, Mr. William. Wellock, Socialist M.P. for the Stourbridge Oivision of  Worcestshire, England, in the British Parliament. He makes some interesting disc'osures in a recent article oa "Soviet Russia of /Today," which appeared in a recent issue of the "Socialist Review." There he admits that the  Soviet dictatorship "'possesses, even boasts of. a most efficient Secret Service,  and is responsible for creating a military spirit that gives one food for re-  4.***���������$ irvr*  '���������*  Moreover, he says, "Girls as well as boys are learning to handle rifles,  and girls' corps for this purpose are being formed in those otherwise excellent  institutions, workers' or trade union clubs. Indeed, except during the World  War, I have never seen such military enthusiasm as I witnessed in Riissia  during hiy recent visit." Mr. Wellock mentions a military demonstration by  half a million young people of the International Youth Movement, and observes: "If after the enthusiasm and determination I then witnessed, Russia  is ever attacked I pity tfce army that comes out against her, for no capitalist  government in the whole worid can put an army into the field with a modicum of the enthusiasm possessed by Young Russia. It .was very significant."  Thus, while professing peace at Geneva, and submitting proposals that  all the nations of the worid totally disarm, the Soviet leaders are engaged  in the task of exciting military enthusiasm throughout the length and breadth  of Russia, and training the youth of the land, girls as well as boys, for war.  In the face of such duplicity, and with full knowledge of what Russia  is attempting in China, and, in fact, in all countries where a feeling of  unrest prevails, how can the other nations of tbe world scrap all their armaments, as many, if not most of tbem, would like to do so? Russia is, in actual  fact, the greatest stumbling block to world disarmament, and. notwithstanding all the pious protestations of the Soviet leaders, constitutes the outaand-  ing threat against future peace among the nations.  t-.it-      mm. ** mi+m ^      ������������-���������*3���������.-,      B*.

World's Greatest Tea Drinkers  Women are always included whon  speaking of mankind, for man embraces woman.  New Zealanders Serve It Seven Times  Every Day  In New Zealand they drink tea  seven times a day, according to one  of the Canadian Exchange teachers,  Miss Luella Derbecker, of Kitchener,  Ont. Miss Derbecker stated that although there "were no furnaces in the  houses, the practice of toa-drinklng  served to counteract the chill of the  rainy season, dui'ing July and August.  Tea before breakfast, tea at breakfast, morning tea at half past ten, tea  for lunch, afternoon tea, tea for dinner, and tea for supper was thc unvarying procedure. Even thc schools,  shops* and offlces served tea at .1.0.30  In the morning she said.  Many mothers give their children  solid foods at too early an age and  say proudly that their babies "eat  everything that grown up people do."  Such a course is almost certain to  bring on indigestion and lay the foundation of much, ill-health for the little one. ���������������������������������  Other mothers administer harsh,  nauseating purgatives which in reality irritate and injure the delicate  stomach and bowels and at the same  time cause the children to dread air  medicine.  Absolutely no meat should be given  to a child until it reaches the age of  18-months, and then only if approved  by the doctor. Por medicine, all  strong, disagreeable oils and powders  should be abandoned and Baby's Own  Tablets given instead.  Baby's Own Tablets are especially  made for little ones. They are pleasant to take and can be given "witn  absolute safety to even the new-born  babe. They quickly banish constipation and indigestion, break up colas*  and simple fevers and make the cutting of teeth easy. They are soid by  medicine dealers or by mail at 25  cents a box from The Dr. Williams'  Medicine Co., Brockville, Ont.

HAYES,  Registrar of Voters, Creston Electoral District  Fifth Street Road  In some quarters of the village a  little feeling is being exhibited on  account of a petition, which has  been fairly well signed, asking the  commissioners to take into con  sideration improving Fifth Street  so as to provide the easiest possible  grade for travel into town from  the west side.  With the talk of purely selfish  motives actuating those who  originated the petition die Review  ia not oonoerr.ed, because it strikes  us that there are a oouple of excel-  lent reasons why all villagers  should be selfishly interested iu the  providing of a highway that will  make travel just as easy a-9 possible  in that quarter.

The. flood waters of the river, caused  by the late melting of the snow in the  high mountains of the Hookies, had  receded; the grass was shooting forth  anew as on an April morning,'and all  nature seemed again in rebirth.  I took my fishing, rod and: knapsack  and started for a hike across the green  fields to Crestwood, that picturesque  little suburb of Creston, which snuggles  After the  Show  Have some Ice Cream or  an  Ice  Creaus  cioaa   at  our parlor at the Creston  Drug & Book Store.

At first one sees a stretch of  timber;, then a glance to the left and  something glittering in the sunlight  catches your eye,���������a fish is sporting  itself in the placid stream below; and  a little farther on through an opening in the trees one sees again the  beautiful- emerald green meadows, following the windings and curves of the  river's bank, fringed with the darker  green of the cotton woods and birches,  and' stretching tar away for miles, perceptibly to the cone shaped peaks oi*  the Pend d'Oreille mountains in. Idaho.  At Crestwood Park I procure a canoe,  leaving the highway for a water route  to try my luck at angling. I paddle  along slowly, watching the squawfish  splash and dart after the little minnows which sometimes traverse the  water's edge,, and enter a little cove.  A rustle and a scolding chatter greet  me from the trees above; a squirrel  jumps from bough to bough. "You  little rascal," I exclaim. "What right  do you think you have to warn all  nature that I am an intruder,, or are  you wishing; some iunch from my knapsack?"

A talkative bluejay was not far away.  1 could catch a glimpse now and then  of its shining blue plumage as it  flitted in aruLout through the groves of  balsam and i fir.  "You would also be a robber for my  lunch,*' ^ mused, and at that I drew  it from my knapsack, and after I haa  eaten it I lay on. my back gazing up  into the branches of the old Juniper.  Suddenly the jay's voice took on a  note of fearfand warning, followed by  short, quick' squawks. I heard the  swish of something above my head and  a large hawk settled on top of the  Juniper tree.  "Another tragedy of nature,". I mused.  "You would.like little Mr. Bluejay for  your lunch, I suppose, and he was only  a few moments ago, I believe, wishing  he could cheat me out of mine.  "There, take that instead," I said,  throwing the smallest of my morning's  catch at him. The fish slid over the  rocks and lay on a little sand bar at  the water's' edge. He eyed it critically,  but evidently: thought it safer to decamp to other fields, and spreading his  wings, he rose,majestically into the air  and soared away.  Then all was quiet. Even the bluejay had taken advantage of my entertainment of his foe , and had sought  cover in some dense glade.  Then  I * heard   a   slight   trembling  sound, and looking upl saw that the  old  Juniper was  shaking her  silvery  green, leaves.y I held my^breath and  keyed my ear to listen,   ores; she was  whispering���������whispering  to  me.

DUE TO THSN   -5? ���������  (Continued,)  I wanted to know jusi how they  did make money. Does the modern  country newspaper publisher keep accounts like a business man, or does  .ho just guess at his profits, as the  Idd-timers used to doV-and usually  guessed wrong?  "That's one or the things we .are  doing in our state and regional press  associations," said the Iowa .man.  "���������Teaching the country editor how to  figure his costs and base his advertising and subscription rates upon  them is one of the important items in  the work of our organisations. Too  many of them are still guessing a*  costs. In fact, the former president  of the National Editorial Association.  Herman Roe, recently said that accounting was the weakest spot In the  whole rural newspaper field."      ���������  "I was at the meeting when Roe  said that," put in Bert Mills. "He  asked for estimates of the cost of  producing a six column, ������ight-p&go  paper, 2,000 copies. Would you fellows  believe that those estimates ran all  the way from ?75 to $300? The men  who were publishing the papers didn't  know, most of them, what It cost  them. How are you going to sell advertising space at a fair price?

On  approaching Bethphage and Bethany,  not far from, the city,..Jesus bade two  of His disciples go into the village op-  pbsita, where on entering they would  find a colt tied which no man had  ever ridden; this animal they -were to  loose and bring to Him, If questioned  as to their action they were to say,  "The LiOrd hath need of him And will  return htm to you after he has been  ridden." Thte disciple found the colt-  la a public street fastened to a door,v'  and as they unloosed him were  questioned, but upon answering as  Jesus had directed? they were permitted to take him away. The owner was  evidently a friend of Jesus.  They brought the colt and put their  loose, outer robes upon him for their  Master to sit   upon.   Others    spread  their garments on the road, and yet  others secured branches of palm trees  <John 12.13), and cast them down for  Him to ride over. And the crowd that  went before as well as the crowd that  followed cried, ''Hosanna (Save now;  compare the  acclamation,  God  Save  the King); Blessed is_He that eomethi  in the nanae of the J-.ord; "Blessed is  the kingdom that cometh, the Kingdom of our father David; Hosanna in  the highest." The words are from the  one hundred and    eighteenth   Psalm,  "The Messianic Psalm," the last one  of  the  five   "Hiallel   Psalms"   which  were sung by the    people    as    they  wended their -way around the altar at  the great festivals.   Their use on this  occasion indicated   that   the    people  recognized Jesus    as    the    Messiah.  "Shout, O daughter    of   Jerusalem,"  Zechariah had    cried;     "behold    thy  King: cometh unto thee; he is just, and  having salvation; lowly, ' and    riding  upon an ass,  even upon a colt, fhe  foal of an ass/' This prophecy Jesus  intentionally fulfilled. The words were  prophetic of a peaceful King, not of  a warrior.    The, ass was the animal  for labor; the horse was for war. "In  reality  the. ride   over  the   Mount of  Olives -was Jestfs' last attempt to convey to those about Him by symbolic  act that which His words had failed  to convey, thiat He had not come to  be a conquering warrior or political  Kingr but~a lowly Servant and Prince  of Peace."���������George A.

After lying in  bed for seven weeks suffering untold  agony -with    inflammatory    rheumatism, relief finally came through the  use of ������his medicine.       I could not  move in bed only as they lifted me,  and I could only sleep when opiates  were given me.      The medical treatment I was taking    seemed   of    no  avail.

I was pretty well convinced by thia  time on every point but one.  "I'd hate to try to borrow money at  the bank on the strength of that subscription revenue," I suggested.  There -was a chorus of laughter  from the entire group around the  luncheon table.  "Try to subscribe to an up-to-date  country weekly without paying cash  in advance and see what you get,"  said one of them.  "Cash-in-Advance  Clubr is one of our strongest and most  popular organizations.     It ha3 taken  a good deal of educational effort, both  with subscribers and with publishers,  to establish the principle of paid-in-  advance subscriptions, and there are  a good many papers still which do  not enforce it very   strictly.   But   a.  should say that a clear majority of  the  country weeklies now get their  money from    subscribers    promptly,  both for original    subscriptions    and  for   renewals.     The   modern   farmer  has  not the aversion  to paying oiu  cash that his granddad had. Ho has  the cash to pay, for one thing,  ana  ho buys machinery and other things  for cash, so that It seems natural to  Uim to pay for his paper in cosh. And  while we think of the old-time editor  as taking apples or cord wood for subscriptions, we've found .some papers,  in the course of our association  investigations,  which have  always enforced      tho     cash-in-advance     rule.  There's   tho   Southern   Standard,   for  nxample, which has been published at  McMinnvlllc.

There must be soiseone in this city  who would let her work.  The next day .Miss"Hitchie bad an  address for her. The lady.there wanted someone to come by the day and  go home a1^ night. Helmi set out at  6h.ee, taking a street car to "save  time. Wheii she arrived she found that  the lady had already secured a helper for the iday.  After Helmi had gone the lady remarked to her friend that the girl  whom Miss Ritchie had sent looked  rather pafe, and she wiehed she had  given ber a street car ticket. The  friend advised her not to worry over  it-���������"no doubt a brisk -walk would do  the girl good."  Helmi walked slowly over the long  bridge, whose ; great iron pillars  frowned coldly at her. On the river  below men were drawing slelghloads  of ice, glistening blue against the  white snow. They looked so warm and  happy in their fur coats. HelmLv stopped for' a naonientfto watch thena, but  scon hurried ������u, for it made her  dizzy to took down, and yet it-drew  her back again in a horrible vvay that  made her heart beat sickeningly. She  compelled herself to think of little  Lili's pink fingers, yrlth. their long,  tapering nails, and the satiny feel of  her little cheek..  Helmi kntfw there were kind women in the city; there were women  like Miss Abbie and Miss Rodgers,  and men like Mr, Terry and the Doctor. She - would not give up���������two  days was not long to be looking.  When Helmi got back to the Bureau Miss Ritchie's assistant was  there, a young lady with a metallic  voice and otlff wfaite collar which  seemed to choke her. She motioned  Helmi to sit down.  Helmi laid her purse on her knee  and leaned < back against the wall.  Such a weariness came over her that  even tlie hard seat could not prevent  sleep. She waa awakened by the metallic voice of the assistant and  sprang up in confusion. It was near  closing time and the seats were  empty. Then she noticed that her  purse was gone. Tho blood rushed to  hor head, and it seemed aa if something snapped. She hunted wildly,  talking In her own language excitedly.'  The metallic    voice   waa    saying:  "Wo cannot be responsible for property���������you should have held on to  your purso~~was there much In it?"  "All that I havo in tho world," said  Helmi brokenly,  "Too bad," come from the stiff collar, "but you can't blamo us."  Helmt walked down tho atroot  empty handed and distraught.

At  the corner of Namao Street a sign in  a windbwf glared at her  ,a sign in  black letters    on a blue card. Helmi  read it aloudln her eagerness, then  darted .in the door.  y "GIRL. WANTED"  said   the   sign.  Pale  ahd  trembling,  Helmi approached the .desk.  j   "Do  you want  a  girl?   Will  you  take me?" she said, before she noticed the person who sat there.  A tall, old Chinaman rose from his  high stool.    ''You washee dish, cook,  wai tee table? "he asked.  -   "I will do anything," said Helmi;  "give me a~ehanee."

She was dressed very  smartly in lier black dresa, with.  White apron and cap, and carried the  trays with the old air of aloofness.  Deeply concerned as Major -Gowsett  was over the dishonoring of the Belgium women���������and he spoke of them  with deep feeling every night in his  recruiting speeches; indeed, with an  almost fatherly solicitude���������he did not  hesitate to tell Helmi's story now to  hia young officer friend.  "Our haughty looking waitress is  a lady with a past���������a real purple  past," he said, In a low voice.
