Explanations and Coramc-nts  Stewardship In Regard To Missions, Acts l.ft-8.r=-The apostles met  Jesus on the Mount of Olives, ana  there they asked Him if at that tiine  He would restore the Kingdom to  Israel. Their question shows how  well-night impossible it stilt was for  the apostles to rid themselves; of the  common Messianic expectation of the  Jews, that the Christ would rule over  a Jewish nation independent of Rome  and herself dominant, politically ana  religiously^ over the other nations of  the earth. "It needed the Pentecostal outpouring of the Holy Spirit to  teach the apostles that Christ's Kingdom is not of this world."  "It is not for you to know tne  times or seasons, whicn the Father  hath set within His own authority,"  was. the answer sof Jesus. "It implies that He will restore the Kingdom to Israel; not, however, to 'Israel after the flesh,' as the apostles  imagined but to -"the Israel of God/  i.e. to. Christian believers of every  nation, by ma&ing- Christianity the  dominant religion."  "O God, I pray Thee for the childlike  heart,  That can enjoy���������all 'Vexing   things  apart������������������  The beauties Thou in   heaven    and  earth doth, show, *  Nor fret myself with things I do not  know."���������-Babcock.  And then Jesus promised power  through the coming of the Holy  Spirit, and gave His great commission: they were to be His witnesses  both in Jerusalem and in all Judaea  and Samaria, and unto the uttermost  part of the earth. Some one has call-  son in the sphere of foreign affairs.  "When the Peace Treaty of Versailles  was in the making, he was in Paris;  and later on, in pamphlets and numerous volumes and newspaper articles and lectures he,has dealt with  international questions with.a scholarship and sure grasp o������ realities  rivalled by few of his contemporaries."'   'v'-.-   '.  Prof. Shotwell, in fact, mustf be  ranked among the greatest ofi-Iiving  Canadians. The pity is that, like  many another, he is-an exile from  the land his talents could serve so  well.  sleep now  Iteste&nerves nuifw allt}.ic difference  lour   doctor  -will tell  yvu.   uiuwv'���������-  chewing  relieves   nervous   tension* .  jhow the healthful cleansing action.  of Wriglev's refreshes  the   mouth?  and tones you up.

That Dr. Williams' Pink Pills make  new rich blood and bring health and  strength  has  been   proved   in  thousands of cases.       One  such  case is  that of Miss Margaret White,, Parry  Sound, Ont., who nays:���������*T was attending high school and as examinations were coming on I was working  hard, and began to feel easily tired,  and    often, had    severe    headaches.  When I sat down to a meal I felt  that I did not want to eat.     I went  to a doctor who told me that I was  anaemic.      I took his medicine, but  made little progress.   Then my aunt,  who had great faith in Dr. Williams-  Pink Pills  ,got one  a supply  and I  began takLng them.      I soon noticed  that   my   appetite   was   improving,  that   the   headaclics   came   less frequently Find that I was not ho easily  tired.     I went away to camp for my  holidays, taking the pLlls    with    nu>  and taking them reguarly.    The result was   that I    returned   homo   n  healthy srLrl, my    weight    Increased,  my cheekH grow rosy and every ache  and pain had vanished.

At this instant his  foot caught in  a root to  send him  sprawling on  his face rolling  down  the mossy hillside, the pails clattering after. He lay where he had fallen,  flat on his back,    with    arms    outstretched.

His swollen face puckered in a���������smile and he passed on up  the hill, and Andy came stiffly to his  ��������� feet and resumed his never-ending  task. -  Connie brought reports that the  fire was being held on the north and  east. The fire-break on the south  held,, but spot fires were- kept in  check only - by * the almost super-  hufcnan efforts of the fire-fighters.  Forest fires reach the peak of their  intensity while tbe sun is hottest.  With darkness the wind subsides,  and, especially in the mountains "the  heavy dews are a never-failing help.  The sun, showing blood-red-through  the smoke, now sank behind the hills  andva blessed coolness filled the air.  The fire "smouldered along the firebreaks, but the dreaded sparks were  not flying.- The trembling roar diminished to a steady crackling where  fallen trees were being steadily consumed.  Theyftre-fighters, their shoulders  drooping, and wavering from sheet-  weakness, plodded down-the hill for  well-earned food and rest.  "You'll have to be at it again at  daylight," said Wilkinson grimly  They nodded a tired assent. Wilkinson and Donald . with twelve?: rhen  patrolled the fire area throughout  the night.    .  ~ - -. '���������. -    ��������� \  The next morning  fbroke    sullenly  in a dull haze. As the first Streaks of  iight heralded the coining of the hew  day,  the fire-fighters again took up  their posts. Men from the other mill  arrived,   and  another  day  of  battle  with the fire demon -was begun. An  attempt was made to check it on the  west front, high up    the    mountainside,    where*   the    fire    had    .crept  through in the night to a small level  plateau. At ten'   o'clock    the    wind  came suddenly, ������and * with- it the fftre  bmke through on the south-west corner with a deafening roar and rushed  through a stand of dead trees witb  ever-increasing speed.  Donald shouted a   quick    cry   of  j warning to the men who were in danger of being cut off by this break.  They   came   on    the    double    quick  just in time, as a lurid wall of flame  shot up the hill over the path thej-  had traversed.  "Are the men all out?" questioned  'Donald.  "AndyJsn't here!" said one of tho  men excitedly.  Donald seized  the  speaker's  arm.  "Was Andy with you?"  The man nodded.  Donald's face sot in grim lines.

AL thta wpat lhe ilre hod spent Ito  fury in Uio first mad rush, but a  heavy smoke welled up from tlio,  charred ground.

Sharp reports from tho tree-  tops made tho plucky cayuso shy in  a panic of fear.  Filled     with     apprehension,     tho  crowd of fire-fighters    stared    with  i tonHo    anxiety    Into      iho      drifting  J amokc. Then a glad cheer burnt from  ; them, aa  harao   and   rider   emerged.  j Andy dinging to Connie's stirrup and  Donald swaying drunkenly in the  rear.

Sparks from its lofty biasing top were floated by the breeze  to land on the* dry ground, starting  innumerable fires. - '  "That tree will have to come down  or we will be fighting spot fires indefinitely," said Wilkinson.  Silence fell. Everyone of those  lumber-jacks knew the danger attached to the falling of a rotten,  blazing tree. In' sound timber .- the  skilled "faller" can cut the scarf and  drive the falling-wedge to lay the  tree within six inches of the desired  spot. With a hollow tree tlie task is  much mere diifScult, as in the soft,  decayed pulp the wedge may not provide sufficient leverage to swing the  enormous weight, and the tree may  crash from any angle.  Men working at the butt of a  burning- tree, too, are exposed to the  fall of branches.

In the province there are forty  constituencies represented by 48  members, and there is a matter of  $10,000,000.00 for road work, or on  an average about $250,000 per  | constituency, witb the figures due  to run higher in the interior as  there should pe little call for government .aid with road improvements in oity constituencies 3uch as  Vancouver, Victoria, Nelson, New  Westminster, and others.

To settle the dispute,  the following test was proposed: Each hrcw-mastcr was to  .consume n gigantic tankard of the beer brewed by his  'opponent, after which he was to stand on one leg and thread  0 needle. The loser claimed that a #oat that had butted in  through the fcirclo of men surrounding the opponents was  responsible for hia downfall.

Comedy parts are  bright without being exaggerated mid  the story itself carries an interest that  is y exceptionally well sustained  throughout the* first and second acts.  The rhort third actrhowever, falls behind in interest and for this reason the  players? were faced with "the problem  of carrying; through the last two  scenes of the third act nf ter ibtesHSstin  the story had reached its elsEaakj This  is the fatdt of the play itself and those;  last scenes lacked in strength should  not .blame either the players or the  director.

It is quite true that everybody does not see eye to eye on tais subject,  and farmers themselves are sharply divided on the issue whether or not  mixing should "be absolutely prohibited and made an offence under the law.  While many favor such a policy, others hold the opinion that if mixing  was entirely disallowed tjjere would be a terrible glut of low grade and no  grade grain on the market, with resulting" enormous loss  to producers.  The Saskatchewan Grain Inquiry Commission has gathered within its  own province a mass of evidence on this and allied subjects affecting the  grading and marketing of Western grain, and proposes to carry its  investigations further afield in Manitoba, Alberta, British Columbia, and  Europe, in what is recognised as tlae most determined attempt yet made  to find solutions to some of tho acute problems confronting the Western  grain grower. In due time the report and recommendations of that  Commission will be laid before the legislative authorities.

It is unanimously denounced as an evil, and one that  is costing the farmers of Western Canada many millions of dollars  aiuaually. Furthermore, control in the case of this particular form of  mixing rests, not with Governments or Wheat Pools,, or Grain Commissions,  but with the individual grain grower. ~  The form of mixing to which reference is made is that indulged in by  so many farmers of sowing seed of mixed varieties. Instead of sowing' only  pure seed of one good variety,, the seed too frequently used is a mixture of  different varieties, white wheats mixed with red wheats, wn'a consequent  loss in value of the crop harvested. Thus the original mixing takes place,  not in country or terminal elevators, not on board ship, not in the wor.!d  markets, "but right on the farms of Western Canada,  Investigation over a number of years has established the fact that  certain varieties are best adapted to certain districts. This information is  available to every farmer. It is his for the asking" from his nearest  Experimental Farm, He should secure this information and then sow the  variety which grows best in his district. He may not be able to afford to  purchase sufficient pure, registered seed of that particular variety to seed  his entire acreage this year, but he should get a few bushels of such pure,  registered seed, sow at in a prepared plot, and thus increase his seed supply  on his own farm.  The frosts of last Fall make it necessary that all seed sown this spring  be first tested for its germinating qualities. Strong germination is necessary  ip wheat, oats, barley and flax. Strong plants having healthy vigorous  roots withstand adverse conditions such as spring frosts, insects, disease,  better than weak plants. Farmers will be well advised, therefore, to sena  samples of theii- seed grain to th^ir nearest Dominion Seed "Laboratory -ants  !mve it tested. "       ' "  ;  There is still another form of mixing on the farm which is even more,  disastrous, that is the mixing of weed seeds with the grain through 'the ur.e  of impure and not properly cleaned seed. Governments "and railways combine to run special seed cleaning machinery demonstration trains through  tlae country. Governments build seed cleaning plants. Nevertheless/tons  of weed seeds are sown annually, as well- as mixed varieties of grain, as  was definitely proven by the seed drill survey conducted in Saskatchewan  a couple of years ago.  Western Canada farmers must begin at-the beginning in dealing with  this mixing evil. First, dt is essential Oiat all seed sown be of one jyood  variety, thoroughly cleaned, with all weed seeds eliminated, and tested to  demonstrate its germinating qualities.

One day is fine, the  next cold and blustery. One day dry,  the next wet and disagreeable.

The Tablets are a gentle out  thorough laxative that sweeten the  stomach and regulate tlie bowels,  thus driving* out constipation and Indigestion and relieving the baby of  the many childhood ailments which  are the direct result of a clogged  condition of the bowels or a sour  stomach.
