Healthier Life  By the Phlloeopher-Phyeiclmn  GEORGE F. BUTLER, A. M., M. D.  Laughter  I*  undoubtedly  ene  of  Nature'*  greatest tonics.    It  brings  the   disordered   faculties  and  functions   Into  harmony,   It  lubricates  the   mental   bearings,  and prevents th* friction which  monotonous,  exacting    business  engenders.     It   Is  a   divine  gift  bestowed upon us as a life preserver, a health promoter, a Joy  generator,     a    6ucce������������������s     maker.  Life   with   the  average   man   la  too serious  at best.    Never loso  an  opportunity    for    relaxation  from   the   stress   and   strain   of  your    business    or    profession.  Every draught of laughter, like  an   alr-cushlon,   eases  you   over  the Jolts and the hard places on  life's     highway.     It     tends     to  bring- every  abnormal  condition  back  to  the   normal.     It o is     a  panacea for heartaches, for life's  bruises.     It   Is   a   life   prolonger.  "Laughter   is   a   positive   sweet-  ner   of   life,   but,   like   good  coffee,  It  must0 be well  cleared  of  the grounds of ill will.    There is  nothing   on   earth   more  delightful   to   listen     to     than     witty  laughter,  and  nothing  more tormenting     than    the    silly    and  causeless  cachination  of - fools.  Between   a   laugh   and   a   giggle  there  is the  width  of the  horizon."    Commend   me to a  good  laugh���������������������������not   to   a   little   snickering    laugh,   but    one    that   will  sound   right  through  the  house.  The  first   duty  we  owe  a  child  is to teach It to fling out its Inborn  gladness and Joy with the  same freedom and abandon that  the bobolink does when It makes  the  meadow    Joyous    with    It*  song.    Learn to    laugh, and  laugh aloud.

THURSDAY,   SEPT.   19,   1918  RULE OF THE ROAD  against  the United States alone  sh  For a number of years the feeling has  that the rule of thc road 'prevailing in Briti  Columbia���������������������������-turning lo thc left���������������������������is obsolete, particularly in. face' of the fact that tliis is now tbe  only province in North America where such a  custom prevails. Efforts have becn made from  lime to lime lo have thc law of thc road changed  so as lo conform to the custom so universally  prevailing, but 111 tic .headway, has been made.  Opposition to the; proposed change has come principally from Vancouver, where ..the B." C. Electric  Company has put up a(.slrong fight to retain thc  old custom owing, as the company claims, to the  greal cost it would entail on it lo meet the new  requirements on its tramway system.  Evidently something is to be done this year, to  bring about legislation in the right direction. In  this connection the Summerland Review says:  "fl is quite to be expected that the adoption of  the universal rule:;di* the road to "keep  lo  the  right' would again'be' advocated at the coming  Good Roads Convention. The announcement that  Mayor   Gale of Vancouverwill come out as a supporter of thc movement to have thc. regulations  altered so lhat the traffic on streets and roads o  British Columbia will keep to the right instead of  lo lhe left will bc welcomed by advocates oi' lhal  change.    As wc havc stated before   'keep lo fhe  right" is llie rule in the prairie provinces and in  the Stales of the Union.    The exception  to  this  rule which exists here in B.

Il is estimated that 1,500,000  I gallons a day, or 10,500,000 gallons a week, could  be saved if the following don'ts were observed by  everybody:  "Don't spill any gasoline.  "Don't perm it,.leaks..   ���������������������������>  "Don't use any for washing. '  "Don't leave tanks or cans open.  "Don't waste lubricating oil.  "More than 67,000 J gallons of gasoline are lost  by tank-wagons daily through carelessness. About  108,000 gallons are daily wasted at garages.  Motors running idle use about 150,000 gallons.  Leaky and poorly adjusted carbureters mean a  loss of 271.000 gallons. Ail this, together wilh  897.000 gallons in the needless use of cars, makes  the total of 1,500.000 gallons of daily waste.
