The reason that measles and smallpox had gained such a foothold in  , the city was that they had broken  out in the public school, thus affcrd-  ��������� ing an unrestricted opportunity for.  their spreading,, before ; they ^ were  discovered. He recommended that  the council make an effort to secure  a permanent isolation hospital, and  suggested that the provincial government be asked to co-operate with  with the city with this end in view.  The milk supply duriug tbe year  had been good, all the dairies having complied with the municipal  and provincial regulations". The report was accepted."

EXCERPTS FROM LETTERS FROM WAR ZONE  The following excerpts are made  from .letters written by Pte. M. F.  Janes, who is on the western front,  to a friend in this city:  "I have not had time to do much  letter writing lately, so I have" gof  behind with some of my correspondence. However, I will try to catch  up now. Suppose that you have seen  by the papers that the Canadians  have been up in Belgiiffn. Well, I  was with them, and I came d���������  near not getting back. But I am in  France again, and pretty badly  shaken up. I have been picked out  f jr a medical board, and expect to go  up before the big bugs in a day or  two to see if I am still fit for the  front lines. I guess you know how  I feel about it. I can not make Canada, but I may be able to land something better than the front line for  the winter. Young Rooke was  wounded on this trip; I donot know  how badly, as he is not in, my company. 1 saw.Jimmie McDougall  theotherday. He ia 'not looking  well at all. 1 have had two parcels  from Bert Allen lately, and, believe  me, they came in very, handy. I  hope the old berg is still on the map.  I hear lhat Ray McDonald is back  Leo M&der left today for Pullman, in Canada. If he comes to Grand  Wash., where he will   take a  three Forks give him my regards, and Lei1  certainly lucky to get back. What is  my old friend Slim doing qhese days?  He doesn't write very often, so I  suppose he is busy. I sent some  Christmas cards' to Grand Forks.  They were all I could afford, as I  am not very wealthy these days,  and I am all shot to pieces when it  comes to health. I can't laBt much  longer. 1 have not heard of or seen  Percy Taylor or' McWha lately,' but  I guess they are all O. K., as they  don't have to'go near the lines."  In a letter of more recent date  Pte. Janes says:  "Your.letter reached me at a  muddy little village in France. 1  have been up in Belgium for a while,  and that part of the world is worse  than France. My.chumwas killed  there last trip, so I am wandering  around all alone. I have not picked  up with another one yet. There are  a number of Grand' Folks in this  battalion, but they are in other  companies. Ernie Wilde came back  yesterday, and Jimmy McDougall  is here also. Bob. St. Claire Mc-  Quarrie is in command of my company. Yough Rooke was wounded  and McWha has been transferred to  another battalion and has a bombr  proof job. Doug Carter came over to  France last month and is in the  signal corps of another battalion.  As for myself, I am still able to'get  around, but I have rheumatism all  through my bones, so I don't think  I will be much good afte-t the winter is over.  ���������  ... "So. the. .Grand . Forks boys_ are  joining the air "service. That is  about the best place there is over  here���������mostlv bomb-proof, because  they will never be able to fly.  "I hope to get Paris leave before  long and I will get my picture taken,  and you will be able to see what  eight or nine months under fire  makes a man look like. I have  stood the game pretty well, and I  have been very lucky���������never missed  a trip in the front lines since coming  to France. That is a great deal  more than some of them can say."  COPPER MOUTAIN  MODEL MINE TOWN  Copper mountaiu mining camp of  tlie Canada Copper corporation is one  of the most modern on this continent.  The buildings are well lighted by  electricity, the streets are well laid  out and the main bunkhouse is said to  loom up like a railway hotel. The  building is over 150 feet long and has  three storeys aud a basement. The  basement has a cement floor, lockers  for the men's clothes, shower baths  and m'odern sanitary equipment.  Each room has two single iron  bedsteads aud mattress, a table,chairs,  etc. Electric light fixtures are installed and the rooms are steamhoated.  The building has several balconies and  iron  fire escapes.  MS IND OF  EXT FALL  People Who Have Faith in  Prophecies Are Given  Hope  ' Paris, January 14.���������"The beginning of next autumn seems to me to  be the most favorable time for the  conclusion of peace." So prophesies*  Mme. de Thelme, who has the reputation of being the youthful successor of Mme. de Thebes, the celebrated clairvoyant, who died last  year. Mme. de Thelme predicted  last year the downfall of the czar,  the triumph of the revolution in  Russia, the pope's attempt to make  peace between the belligents, the  strikes in- Paris, -the events in  Greece, as well as the Parisian political scandals of today. In her present prophecies concerning peace, the  seeress says, '"'I think I. may add  that the peace negotiations will be  carried on in a town in the Rhine  valley."  Predicting other events of the  coming year, she says: ��������� "Nature vvi 1  be an accomplice in the present difficulties. Serious earthquakes will  cause disasters in Greece ' and '- Central America. Russia will still be in  the throes of successive crises, accompanied by trouble and disorder.  No inaii strong enough will show up  to lead that country to new destinies  I do not believe in the absolute  downfall of the German empire. As  long as the kaiser is protected by the  influence of the planet Mars he will  resist both exterior and interior a t  tacks, but it is certain that the re  union os the astral influence about  Clemenceau, Poincare and Wilson  will heavily counterbalance his advantages.  "Powerful democratic drives will  sweep over England and Italy. As  a matter qj fact, strong winds of'independence will blow over all peoples, and new democracies will try  to establish themselves everywhere.'

FRIDAY, JANUARY 18,,.1918  They say that ."money used to go further  than it does now." Don't you believe it. No  money in the world ever went as far as your  "Red Cross money will go.  It sometimes requires blunt talk to make a  point.  Freedom of speech is a great inheritance.  The wise man will abuse it neither in. public  nor in private.

When the final terms of settlement are discussed at the close of the war, says an eastern  paper, there should be present among the  diplomatic representatives those empowered  to speak for the rank and file of the peoples  of the several governments.

Sound judgment is responsible for a  lot  of  silence.  There is often a lot of truth in the familiar  retort, "You judge other people by yourself."  But the truth applies not only to men of evil  intent and bad motives; the same trait is just  as marked in honest,-kindly persons.  If bread is th* staff of life, then bread   and  -honey must be a gold-headed cane.  "He'That Will Not Work,.  Neither Shall He Eaf"  Some men and women work for a living.  Other men and women own for a living, says  Hearst's Magazine for January. - ,.   ,  ���������  The owners hold first place,in industry as  stockholders, bondholders, mortgage holders,  and title holders. The economic system is run,  by them and'for them. Tho return which they  make to the community in services is small  when compared with the income which they  receive from their property holdings.  The matter appears most "clearly in the case  of an heir to a rich estate. The-father dies,  leaving his son the title deeds to a piece of  city land. If he has no confidence in his son's  business ability he may even leave the land in  trust, and have it administered in his son's  interest by some well-established corporation.  The father did not make the land, though he  did buy it. The son neitheir made nor.bought  the land, he merely secured -the title, and yet  each year he receives a payment of rent upon  which he is able to live comfortably without  doing any work. v ' x  Imagine the feelings of the early inhabitants  of the American colonies toward those few  gentlemen who set themselves up as economically superior beings, and ��������� who. insisted upon  living without any labor upon the labor performed by their fellows. It was against the  suggestion of such a practice that Captain John  Smith vociferated his famous, "He that will  not work, neither shall he eat." It was against  such a practice that tlje Russian revolutionists  were protesting when they upset the Ro:  manofis.  Living on one's income is not a new'experience, ' but it is relatively new in the United  States. The practice found a reasonably effec.r  tive expression in the feudalism of mediceval  Europe. It has been brought to perfection  under modern industrialism.  Living on one's income is becoming as much  a part of American economic life as living by  factory labor, or by mining, or by manufacturing, or by any other social occupation upon  which the community depends for its products.  The difference between the occupations and  living on one's income is that the occupations  are relatively menial, and the income is relatively respectable���������that is, work has won the  disapprobation and ownership has won the  approbation of the community.  The returns from ownership are larger, more*  regular and  permanent than the returns for  industry,   frugality,    thrift,   persistency   and  honesty*'   ' . ' ' %:'  But the community is built upon labor. Its  processes are continued, and its-wealth, is recreated by.labor, r  It is profoundly necessary to encourage  work, to develop enthusiasm, to continue; activity, hence the rewards of should naturally  be turned in tlie direction of these things.  Under the circumstances it seems grotesque  to find society rewarding its owners and  penalizing its workers. ^  -And it seems particularly grotesque that  such a menace to public welfare should have  been permitted to gain a foothold in this the  greatest of all democracies. Bu| happily there  are unmistakable signs that the advancing  evil has been recognized and that it will be  conquered.  (T~  =^\  We have  some excel  ently good values in watches for boys.

People who go through tlie world  in tho quest of happiness lose sight of  the fact that happiness may be homemade.  - Women ought to have part time  jobs,-according to a college professor;  devoting the rest of thoir time to raising families. A good, practical suggestion. Caring for a family occupies  not more than, say, fifteen hours of  a woman's day. She could get a part-  time job for some of the hours she now  devotes foolishly to sleep.���������Puck.

Sheldon Bissell, at Los  \ngeles recently, spoke from an un-  .-;./"nsual theme, "The Humor of Jesus."  x"f In his sermon ho explained several  f of the parables of Jesns which have  1 been stumbling blocks to many, from  . the sandpoint of humor or gentle satire.  He said in part: ��������� r  "Two considerations encourage us  to believe that Jesus made,use of hu-  ���������rnor in much of his informal-conversation and pobhc speaking.  "For one thing, he could hardly  have ignored it and have produced  the profoundly heart moving results  thtit ho,did. Indications point very  ' "strongly.to the fact that Jesus' was  one of the most genuinely eloquent  preachers the world has seen. This  suggests quite convincingly that there  wis not a legitimate weapon in the  arsenal of eloquence that Jesus did  not use.  "To  have   eschewed   humor  would  have meant that he confined himself to  straight  affirmation,   oxhortation   or  denunciation    Bnt  no   great   prophet  or evangelist has ever d������ne this.     Sa  tire ������and irony aud kindly humor are  among the most telling rhetorical   de  vices   of   the public speaker.    ]t Is to  be   expected,    therefore, . that   Jesi s  swung some of the great doors of truth  open upon the 'hinges ot  genuine   hu  rnor.  "[n the second place, it is not pos  eih'e    satisfactorily    to   explain, in a  thoroughly Christian way,   several. of  the notable sayings of  Jesus   without  placing them in the category of irony,  satire or delicate humor.  Such a say  ing, for example, is that one in which  ho forced his religious critics   to   im  P'-ile themselves upon one of the horns  of a dilemma. ���������  "They had denounced and excommunicated John the Baptist because  he ate and drank too little, and at  the same time hounded and maligned  Jesus because he ate and drank too  much. Here was a situation so utter  ly incongruous that it furnished all  the materials for a first-class attack  with the weapon of ridicule. Jesus  instantly seized upon it and used it  with crushing effect. He pointed out  in crisp, vigorous phrase that these  inconsistent men were like disagreeable, sulky children who, when their  playmates proposed the game of 'getting married,' refused to join because  it was too much trouble to dance; and  when they proposed the. game of 'funeral' refused to play again because it  was too much trouble too weep and  wail. Is it stretching the incident too  much to see his hearers dissolved in  laughter, and Jesus himself broadly  smiling? j  ' r" Again, we find Jesus tremendously amused at the unseemly scramble  of the pompous and dignified Pharisees,' whenever fcli'e word was given at  a social* gathering that the 'dinner  was served.' Each one rushed madly  before the other to obtain one of the  choice seats near, the head of the table,  where the waiters caiu'e first. On one  such occasion Jesus gravely pointed  out that-he could show them a better  way than that. 'Go and sit down'in  a poor place, near the foot of the  table. It. will uot be long before the  host spies you are there, modest man  that you are, and take the trouble to  come to your seat and escort you up  to a better one. Then you shall be  applauded by ali those who are at the  table. That is the way to get yoin; de-"  serts.' Can any one picture this scene  to himself and not beiieve that Jesus  was indulging in one of the most delicious bits of irony of which we have  record anywhere1?"  A Pair of Snuffers  A gentleman who was passing his  holiday in the Scottish Highlands  was engaged one night in" writing a  letter in a humble abode where he had  obtained accommodation. The gutter  ing candles annoyed him, and he  called out:  "Mrs. McPhersoh, can you get me  a pair*of snuffers?"  A pair o' snuffers?" repeated Mrs.  McPherson, somewhat bewildered.  "\jfeel, I'll dae my best."  In a few minutes there was a  com  motion outside.    Two stalwart figures  shuffled in, followed by Mrs. McPherson. ��������� "  "This is Donald McDougall," she  said, ''and this is Dougall McDonald. I dinna ken what ye want  wi' them; but I'm thin kin' the twa o'  them tak' mair snuff than any ither  twa in the parish."  If you caro for heavy hair-that glistens with beauty and is radiant with  life; has an incomparable softness and  is fluffy and lustrous, try Danderine.  Just one application doubles the  beauty of your hair, besides it immediately dissolves every - particle of  dandruff. You can- not have nice heavy,  healthy hair if you have dandruff. This  destructive scurf robs .the hair of its  lustre, its strength and its very life,  and if not overcome it produces a fever-  ishriess and. itching of the scalp; the  hair roots famish, loosen and die; then  the hair falls out fast. Surely get a  small bottle, of Knowl ton's .Danderine  from any drug store an:l. just try it.  "The Canadians in France,"  A Great War Map  Canadian homes will no longer have  diflicnlty in-following the Canadian  troops in France. There has just been  issued a map of the European war-  area that clearly shows every point of  interest that has been mentioned in  dispaches since the Canadian forces  first landed in France. It has' been  made especially for the great Canadian weekly, the Family Herald and  Weekly, Star of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to Candian enterprise.  It is a marvel of detail and yet not  crowded. It is in four colors ��������� and  about 2Jj-x3^feet and folded into a  very neat cover, about 5xlU inches.  The map is surrounded by a border of  the regimental, badges . and- coat of  arms of nearly every battalion that  left Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver. Every important point can  be recognized at once. That portion  of the map covering France is in a  soft color with names of towns and  battle scenes in black, easily recognizable. The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most complete aud accurate in detail. The map  could not be produced, except in such  large quantities as The Family Herald  will use, at less than two dollars a  copy, yet it can be had absolutely  free with The Family Herald.  The publishers of The Family Herald and Weekly Star for several  months back have been fighting hard  against "th"e necessity of increasing  their subscription rates, but eventu  ally had to come to it like most other  paper's The increase, however, is a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a year,  making their, new rate SI.25���������and  with the year's subscription they will  include a copy of this great war map  free of/charge. This is certainly a generous offer." and one that Canadiaus  will appreciate. Many expected a  much larger increase in the subscription price of.The'Fa'mily Herald, and  are surprised, at the small extra  amount charged;  The enormous circulation of The  Family Herald and Weekly Star-  should he still .greater when this offer  becomes known.
