On these  days pupils are to cultivate the  plots, as tools will be provided at no  other time.  As an incentive to stimulate the  children in their work, F. M. Holland, vice-president of the Kettle  Valley line, has offered a silver cup  as prize for the best kept plot in the  school garden. The cup is to be  contested for annually, and it is lo  become the property of" the pupils  winning it three timed, whether  consecutively or not.  From another Bource a cash prize  of S3 has been offered to each of the  five divisions, for the best kept pfot  in each division. The money will be  divided into four prizes���������$1.50, $1,  75c and 50c. The winners of the  cup are not eligible for competition  for these prizes.  Farewell for Mr. King  Tuesdey evening, at the home  of  Mr..and   Mrs. .-A...S.  Matheson,   a  farewell   party   was   given   by,.the  members    and   adherents  .of    the  Baptist  church  for   their    retiring  pastor, Rev. 0. \V.   King,   who   left  tlie following day   for   his   new pas  torate   in   Neepawa,   Man.    During  the evening a substantial   purse   of  gold was preseuted to Mr. King   by  Dt-acon   A   J.   Harris   m behalf of  the church, aud words of appreciation   followed   for   the   work  done  here, in spite of the   hard timed, by  Mr. King and his laithful wife.   Re  lresbments were served; and   everyone joined in wishing their departing pastor Godspeed and success   in  his new field.    Mrsi King  and   the  boys will remain a month longer in  Grand   Forks   before following Mr.  King, who is to begin work in Neepawa tbe first Sunday in July.    Mr.  King is to visit his  brother, Frederick King, who  resides at   Corners  ville, South Dakota, before entering  on his new duties.  Next Sunday's  services   will   be  held in coniunction with the   Meth  odist   church   congregation   in  the  Baptist   church auditorium.    Rev.  I louden will preach.  tree is most, abundant,   and attains  its   largest   size   not   far  above sea  level in southern Brilish  Columbia j  and in the region between  the coast  of Washington and Oregon   and the  western   foothills   of   the   Cascade  mountains.    There the tree< crowd  ed close together, rise to a  height of  300 feet; indeed, lumbermen   report  trees 350 feet high, with .trunks   11  feet  in   diameter,   free of bra ich ;.s  for 200, and with hardly   any   per  ceptible   taper   up   to that height.

Uses for Old Papers  In some households there are no  more papers than are required to  light the fire, but in others it is a  problem to know how to get rid -on  them. Here are a few suggestions  as to the use of these old papers:  1. If the soles of-boots are thin, a  few layers of papers will protect the  feet wonderfully.  2. A soft newspaper will polish  windows and lamp chimneys better  than cloth.  3. Layers of newspaper, folded  evenly and placed under the stair  carpet at each tread, may cheaply  be made to take the place of felt.  4. A damped newspaper torn in  bits and scattered over a dusty carpet will take up dust and dirt better  than s*lt.or tea leaves.  5. Paper folded and^placed over  the chest is a great protection on a  cold drive.  6. Paper is preferable to cloth for  removing black from the outside of  pots and pans. The paper can then  be burned.  7. A newspeper under the churn  will keep milk off the floor when  churning.  S. The range may be kept bright  and-clean by rubbing with soft newspapers after each meal.  Floods, slides and washouts on  the rrrdn line of the Canadian Pacific railway have compelled the  company to seud some of its overland passenger trains through Grand  Forks during the past week. Tbe  trains reach the coast over the Col  umbia & Westeru to Midway,thence  over the Kettle Valley line, via Penticton and Merritt to Spenc-'s  Bridge, and from that point over  the main line of the C. P. R, to Vancouver. During the past few days  a number of main line eastbouud  passenger trains have passed through  tbe city, and this afternoon the first  westbound train, composed of ten  coaches, arrived here over the new  overland route. It is to be hoped  that the train crews will become accustomed to the new transcontinental highway, 80 that the temporary  arrngement can be made perma-  nant as soon as the Hope cut-off is  com oleted.  John Ludwig, of Christina Lake,  caught a goldfish a foot long in the  lake this week. He has presented  it to Bill Beach for his aquarium.  The fish is shaped like a bass, but it  is a perfect gold fish, nevertheless,  although it is large enough to make  twelve ordinary gold fishes. As a  sequence to this event, Mr. Beach  is uow seriously contemplating staking the lake as a gold prospect.  Douglas Fir  The province of British Columbia  has presented  to   the   Kew Botanic  Gardens a giant flagstfi   of   Douglas  fir, to replace the old  159-foot staff,  which lasted fifty  years.    The  new  pole is 215 feet long and weighs   18  tons.    It was shaped and  creosoted  in Vancouver, conveyed by steamer  to   London,   and   floated   up   tbe  Thames to Kew.    Poles of   Douglas  fir   are   highly   valued   for   ships'  masts and flagstaffs because of their  straigbtnese,     durability,    strength  and resilience.    Tbe timber  is  also  largely used for telegraph and   electric railway poles and bridge   trestle  timbe.is.    The forest   servec regards  Douglas fir as perhaps the most important of American   woods.    Estimates of the available supply range  from 300,000,000,000 .to  350,000,-  000,000 feet, board   measure  Linguistic Sovereigns  The czar speaks Englis h, French,  German and various Slav dialects.  The king of Spain speaks English,  French, German and Italian.  The kaiser speaks English,French,  Latin, Polish and Russian.  Tbe emperor of Austria speaks, in  addition to German and French,  Hungarian,'Polish, Servian,Croatian,  Dalmatian, Roumanian, Italian,and  some Hebrew.  The king of Italy speaks French,  German and Italian with equal  facility.  The late King Edward spok^ German, French, Spanish, Kussian and  Arabic.  King Ferdinand speaks English,  French, German and Russian.  One forest tire only was  reported  trom the   Bouudary-Kooteuay   district last week.    Fortunately it   did  out   little   damage.    It ��������� originated  from a camp fire left   by   travellers.  Tne fact that in 1915 30 per cent of  the forest fires were caused by campers, sportsmen and   travellers   emphasizes the ueed for care with   fire  on the part of such persons.  Camping, grounds   were   damaged, cover  for game and   fish   destroyed,   and  the use of roads  and  trailt   endangered for the time being' by the very  class of people who were using and  enjoying tbe privileges which   these  benefits conferred.    Tbe extinguishing ot  a   camp  or  roadside fire is"  such an eaey matter that only gross  carelessness or indifference can lead  to damage from this cause.  Last   week   The Sun   printed   an  article copied from the  Nicola   Valley News, printed at Merritt,  which  made  certain  allegations  against a  family who had recently moved from  that city to  Grand Forks.  In doing  so, we had ample   justification.    If  the people of Merritt had been   victimized, it was our duty to  put tbe  citizens of this   community on their  guard.    The   most   serious   charge  made against the  family   was, that  the   funeral   expenses of  an infant  boy had been saddled on the people  of  Merritt.    We have since seen the  undertaker's bill, dated June 5, and  also the   receipt of a money order,  dated a few days ago. sunt   in   pay  ment  of the  same.    This is not an  unreasonable  leugth of-   time   for a  business man to wait for his money,  and effectually disproves the charge  made by the Merritt paper.   It may  reasonably  be  supposed, therefore,  that the other charges   and insinu  ations   in   the   article  are equally  groundless.  Four hundred thousand dollars  has been appropriated for develop,  ment work on tde big copper proposition of the British Columbia Copper company at Copper mountain,  near Princeton, according to in  formation which has reiched this  city from the camp. The ore has  been proved up by extensive diamond drilling operations. Compressors and other equipment are being installed in preparation for the  work. When the ore haV bden  opened up by underground work  the company is expected to erect a  concentrator.  Halifax, N. S., June 20.���������The  Liberals were returned to power in  the Nova Scotia legislature today.  The party of Hon. G. H. Murray,  who has held the premiership for  twenty years, was given the reins of  government with an increased representation. Thirty one Liberals and  twelve Conservatives were eiected  from the.forty-three constituencies  in the province. Hon. C. E Tanner,  Pictou, leader of the Conservative  opposition, was defeated, the'Liber--  ala securing all three seats in that  county. In the last house, which  was made up of thirty-eight members, there were twenty-five Liberals.  Premier Murray and all the members of his government were reelected, the Liberal majority in  some instances being comparatively  high. -  NEWS Of TBI CITY  Payment of the second dividend  this year will be made on June 30  by the Hedley Gold Mines company, which operates the Nickel  Plate mine at Hedley. The disbursement will be 860,000, bringing  the total for the year to date to  ������120,000 and the grand total since  incorporation of the present company to 81,943,320.  Advises reached this city by mail  yesterday that H. W. Jones, who  enlisted at Vernon last summer, had  been killed iu action in France.  Mr. Jones was teller in the Royal  bank in this city for a number of  years. He was very popular with  the citizens, and had a wide circle of friends, all of whom will be  profoundly grieved to learn of his  death.  The Sacrament of the Lord's Supper will be observed at the Methodist church on Sunday in cbnnection  with the morning service. In the  evening at 7:30 the members of the  congregation will unite in a union  service at the -Baptist church, at  which Rev. J. D. Hobden will  preach. A cordial invitation is given  to each service.  The welcome rains which started  last Sunday came just in time to  save a lar^e portion of the fruit  crop. The yrospects of. the hay and  grain crops have also been greatly  improved.  The Hedley Gazette prints the  following biographical sketch of a  gentleman who, a few years ago,was  Rev. Gordon Tanner, B.A., recent  Methodist pastor at Rutland, with  his family visitod the city last weekend on bis way to Rossland, where  he has been appointed to the charge  of the Methodist church. At the even  ing service in the Methodist church  last Sunday Mr. Tanner recalled the  fact that be was the first Methodist  minister in Grand Forks, having  erganized the work here eighteen  yeare ago.  The gentleman who recently purchased a portion of H. W. Collins'  ranch had an auto accident yesterday. In turning out of the road for  a team and a dog near Geo. Massie's  ranch he ran up on the bank, and  the car upset.    The car  was   badly  J. H. Plath and Mrs. Addie  Evans, both of this city, were married at the Baptist parsonage in  Wenatchee, AVash., on June 17. Tne  couple returned to Grand Forks on  Tuesday, and they will imke their  future Dome here.  G. H Hardy, prominent kb>r  leader from the coast and late of  Nelson, arrived in the city today for  a visit extending to two weeks in  the interests of the prohibition move  ment.  J. W. Durst, of Deer Park, Wash.,  was here last week visiting bis  daughter, Miss A, M. Durst, who  returned to Deer Park with him.  She expectB to be back in this city  early next week.  News was received in this city  yesterday that C. P. Dawson, a commercial traveller well known here,  who enlisted at Vernon last summer, bad been slightly wounded in  France.  Mrs. C. L.

To u representative .of the  (Jlobe lie gave some most interest-'  ing 'information regarding the remarkable progress recently of the  great undeveloped region north of  Edmonton. Mr. McDonald lias been  doing some special work for Mr. J. 1>.  AJcArthur, the president of the Edmonton, Dunvcgan-' & British Columbia .Railway, which'was open for' regular traffic from L'dinonton to Fowler, Alberta, 277 miles, by an order'of  the board of railway commissioners  a year ago. ' :  Mr. McDonald slates that during  tlie past year the line has been extended from .l.''owJer to Spirit .River,  80 miles, or 357 miles from Edmonton, and only a few miles remain to  be completed to Dunvegan, JB.C. A  branch has been built from Spirit  River to Grande .Prairie, fifty miles,]  or -107 miles from Edmonton, and another branch (known as , the Central  Canada Railway) built from' 'McLennan to ��������� Peace .River Crossing, . 50  miles, or 313 miles from Edmonton.  Th rough rates have been established  on grain, flour and farm products,  from all stations on the E., D. & B.  C. Railway to, Winnipeg, Fort William and stations in Ontario and Quebec, also on fresh fish from stations  along Lesser Slave' Lake lo the  principal cities of eastern Canada,  Uuffalo, Detroit, etc. In order to  encourage tlie farming industry Mr.  McArthur has put in the same freight  rate's mile for mile to Edmonton,  which is the nearest consuming centre to the Peace JRiver country, as  apply from stations in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta to the consuming and distributing centres of  these provinces, on grain, vegetables,  live stock, dairy produce, dressed  meats, etc.    '  Mr.������������������--.McArthur is -also-president- of  the Alberta & Great Waterways Railway Co., which has been constructed  for'200 miles- from Edmonton, the  ultimate destination of which is Eort  McMufray, 350 miles north of Edmonton. At present, the most important station on the Waterways line is  the historic town of Lac la Bjche. one  of the oldest settlements .in Alberta.  A modern hotel has been erected at  Lao la Biche.  ���������Notwithstanding the war there lias  been a very good movement of desirable settlers from various places in  the Prairie Provinces, also from  eastern Canada and the United  States. .  gle glass of beer lessens a. man's endurance by seven per cent, and his  power to remember things by fifteen  per cent., it-follows that it also weakens, his power of recovery from disease. Dr. Welsh, of John Hopkins  University, said, "Alcohol in any form  of in any quantity lessens a patient's  chance of recovery." It' that be true  of an adult, how much truer it is of  the delicate tissues of a child. Some  years ago the German, government issued a poster, warning- parents to give  their children "not one drop of beer,  not one drop of wine, not one drop of  whiskey or any other form of alcohol.".  Not only does alcohol lessen a patient's chance of recover}- from illness,  but it greatly increases his: tendency  to contract disease. No one -will accuse military men of being temperance  cranks, and yet the Handbook of the  Royal Army. Medical Corps takes  great pains to put that fact beyond  question. On page 20 of that book experiments are described that would  convince any man that even one glass  will render, a man more'liable tcr any  contagious or infectious disease  Not long ago the Academy of Medicine of Toronto, unanimously declared against the use of alcohol in any  form as a medicine. Finally let us remember that in the U.S. whiskey and  brandy have been left off the American Pharmacopeia, which is the official list of medicines recommended  for the use of physicians. If that be  so, are you not quite safe'in dropping  the use of it as a family medicine?  Sometime I may advise what to use  in its place.���������H. Arnott, M.B., M.C.P.S.  the only gain forthcoming.

"...������������������  The Family Bottle  Alcohol  is Rapidly Losing Favor as a  Household  Remedy  As prohibition approaches, a good  many who still believe in the virtues  of alcohol as a family medicine may be  disturbed as to how they can have the  bottle replenished. To all such I address this letter, asking them'to examine the matter fairly ancl candidly.  ' Alcohol as medicine is rapidly being  given up in all the large hospitals.  This is shown by the collated reports  of seven of the largest hospitals in  England. In 18G2 $3,743.00 was spent  .for alcohol and only $14,675.00 for  milk. In 1902 only" $13,i86.00 was  spent for alcohol and $43,818.00 for  milk, with about the same number of  patients. Sir Victor Horsely tells us  that some of the present day rapid recoveries are due to the.fact that after  operations, the patients are no longer dosed with alcohol. Many of the  most successful physicians of the day  never prescribe it even in the sniall-  r-st quantities. That being so, would  it not be wise to leave it out of the  family  medicine  chest.  It is now beyond dispute that alcohol even in moderate quantities, les-  ������ens efficiency, lessens power of endurance, weakens I lie memory and eye-  eight. It does not require any great  Intelligence to understand that what  does all this must lessen the power  of a'patient, to fight disease.

Y.    Experiments at Doctor Pierce's  Hospital for several years proved that  there is no other eliminator of uric acid  that can be compared to it.   For those  easily recognized symptoms of inflammation��������� as   backache, scalding  urine  and frequent urination, as well as sediment in the urine, or if uric acid in the  blood  has   caused   rheumatism,   it  is  simply wonderful how surely "Anuric"  acts.    The best of results are always  obtained in cases of acute rheumatism  in the joints, in gravel and gout, and  invariably the pains and stiffness which  so frequently and persistently accompany the disease rapidly disappear.  Go to your nearest drug store and  simply ask for a 50-cent package of  "Anuric," manufactured by Dr. Pierce,  or send 10 cents to Dr. Pierce for a  large trial package. If you Biispect  kidney or bladder trouble, send him a  sample of your water and describe  symptoms. Doctor Pierce's chemist  will examine it, then Dr. Pierce will  report to you, without fee or charge.  Note:���������French scientists affirm that '  "Anuric" is thirty-seven times more  active than lifhia in eliminating uric  acid, and ia a harmless but reliable  chemical compound that may be safely  given to children, but should be used  only by grown-ups who actually wish to  restore their kidneys to perfect health,  by conscientiously using one box���������or  more in extreme cases ��������� as "Anuric"  (thanks to Doctor Pierce's achievement)  is by far the most perfect kidney and  bladder corrector obtainable.  the war, there was a preference loi  small shields, because,of their port-  ableness, protection of the individual  soldier in the trenches, economy and  adaptability, to the requirements of  the,sapper, and the barbed wire destroyer.  The Kussian has a prcdiliclian  for the shield, and during the battles  that determined the fate of Poland  they employed shields so largo that  they had to be mounted on "wheels.  But experience has proved, that this  shield is of tittle value when shell  fire has found its target.  When, after a storm of high explosives, the enemy resorted to infantry attack, (lie Kussians were compelled in many instances to abandon positions held by shield-protected troops, with the result that many  of these revived methods of defence  fell into the hands of the enemy.  An authority on the subject, makes  this observation: "We may draw the  conclusion that individual steel  shields can be used to good advantage; but larger shields, because of  their bulk, are not a success. Protection against light arms and artillery fire during an attack in the open  remains a matter of concealment,  with each man taking advantage of  such cover as he can find."  So that there is si ill much left to  the individual initiative of the soldier.  As long ago as in the wars of the  Greeks, shields o'r shelters of metal  were employed in siege operations,  and were only abandoned when gunpowder gave us cannons and other  artillery.  ly affected by the high cost and limited supply "of the material.

Women who are well of ten ask "Are  the letters which the Lydia E. Pinkhara  Medicine Co. are continually publishing-,  genuine?" "Are they truthful?"  " Why do women write such letters 1"  In answer we say that never have \f&  published a fictitious letter or name.  Never, knowingly, have we published  an untruthful letter, or one ivitliout the  full and written consent of the woman  who wrote it.  The reason that thousands of women  from all -parts of the country write such  grateful letters to the Lydia E. Pink-  ham Medicine Co. is that Lydia E.

The  cash' returns from the two crops are  .likely to be practically ' equal this  year.  '���������The flax crop will rot the sod on  new breaking, and leave the soil in at  least as good condition for wheat as  it' it had been summerfallowed.

FRIDAY, JUNE 23, 1910  The European sovereigns speak many languages, but President Wilson is' the only  ruler who speaks American.  A "disgusted prohibitionist" -writing to the  Victoria Times about the. Bowser government's prohibition act to be submitted to a  referendum; describes the premier's feat in  these lurid words: :��������� "By another supreme contortion, he has landed with his feet in the prohibition roost, his head on the soft pillows of  the liquor interests, while his heart is���������but  Parker Williams says Bowser has no heart,  which long ago became merged in his gizzard."  The "disgusted prohibitionist" concludes as  follows: "Beyond the fact that the prohibition act stops the open sale of intoxicants in  1 >ars. .and liquor shops, ��������� it doesn't do a durn  thing to remedy the evil. Exportation and importation are unrestricted and unchecked except by the financial limitation of the importer; it simply means that, instead of having a  dangerous river running between two fences  which are now guarded by some kind of licensing laws and restrictions, we are going to tear  down the river banks and let the whole stream  slop over into private houses, co-operative  booze clubs and blind pigs."  If a woman has a hunch that eventuates accurately she calls it an inspiration.  Section 57 of Premier Cowser's prohibition  measure reads:  57. (1.) While this act  is intended to prohibit and shall prohibit transactions in liquor  which take place wholly within 'the  province  of British Columbia, except as specially provided by this act, and to restricfrthe consumption of liquor within the limits of the province  of British Columbia, it shall  not affect and is  not intended to affect  bona-fide  transactions  in liquor between a person in  the province of  British  Columbia and  a person   in another  province or in a foreign country, and the provisions of this act shall be construed accordingly. -  (2.) Nothing in this act snail be construed  to interfere with the right of any person to  import from without the province liquor for  bona-fide use in his private dwelling house.

If Lincoln's wishes could be consulted  regarding the project, we are sure that he  would discountenance it, and would say,  "Give the money to the poor." Lincoln is one  of the immortals, and no marble shaft can add  to his greatness. Only the near-great require  monuments to perpetuate, for a few centuries,  their achievement.  A SPttCH OF NOBLE AND EXALTED SENTIMENT  In nominating Wood row Wilson for the presidency of  the United States. Judge John W. Wescott, of New Jersey, made the following speech. To the thoughful mind  the address contains food for reflection; those who take no  interest in American politics are assured that its rhetorical beauty will repay perusal:  "Prophecy is fulfilled. The eternal verities of righteousness have prevailed. Undisrnaped by the calamities of  war, unmoved by vituperation and vain declamation, holding to the pure altar of truth, the schoolmaster is statesman, the statesman financier, the financier emancipator,  the emancipator pacificator, the pacificator the moral leader of democracy.  "The nation is at work. The nation is at peace. Tho  nation is accomplishing the destiny of democracy. Four  years ago the nation was not at work. With resources  boundless, with 100,000,000 people eigjr to achieve and do,  commerce languished, industry halted, men were idle. The.  country struggled in the. toils of an inadequate financial  sAstem. Credit was at the mercy of piracy. The small  business man was bound hand and foot Panie hung like  a storm cloud over the business world.  ".Now bursting granaries, teemihg factories, crowded  railways'and overladeu ships distribute? wnalth and comfort to uncounted millions the world over Tlie production  outruns the means of distribution." The parallel of American prosperity is not found history, nor is it causeless. It  did not not descend like a merciful accident from heaven.  It is not- due to the devastations of a revised tariff It i.s  not the r���������yultof destructive legislation. It can not be at  tributed the manufacture of war materials, constituting  a bare 5 per centum of the volume of national business.

What is its explanation? The Euclid of financial theorv worked out to a demonstration, measures for  the country's relief. He promptly put into elFootJthe  legislative expression of a great program. He did not  talk. He did things - He dynamited the monetary dams  and l������t credit How to the remotest corners of the land, its  spray dashing even upon foreign shores He released the  nation's resources and set the energies of all men free to  exploit them. He destroyed aommereial slavery He strnck  off its shackles.  "The prosperity of the nation is the product of states  manship and financial genius. American credit is now  limited only by its own honesty and capacity. The cause  being undisturbed, the effects must remain.

Millerand, Ont.���������(Special)���������Strong  and hearty again after a long period  of weakness and ill-health, Louis  Champagne; a well known resident of  this place, is spreading broadcast the  good news that he found new health  and strength in Dodd's Kidney Pills.  "For a long time," Mr. Champagne  states in an interview, "I suffered  from kidney disease and backache. My  appetite was uncertain, and. I got up  "in tlie morning with a bitter taste in  my mouth. There were flashes of  light before my eyes,".and I had a  dragging sensation across the loins.  Idy limbs were heavy and I was always tired.  "Then 1 decided to try Dodd's Kidney Pills, and I am glad to be able  to say that two boxes made me well.  I recommend Dodd's Kidney Pills to  all those who suffer from feebleness  or bad  kidneys."  If you have the symptoms mention-,  ed by Mr. Champagne you may be  sure your kidneys need attention. Neglected kidneys are the cause of more  than half the ills mankind is heir to.  The way to treat sick or weak kidneys is to use Dodti's Kidney Pills.

Pills of Attested'Value.���������Parmelee's  Vegetable Pills are the result of careful study of the properties of certain  roots and herbs, and the action of  such as sedatives and laxatives on the  digestive apparatus. The success the  compounders have met with attests  the value of their work. These pills  have been recognized for many years  as the best cleansers of the system  that can be got. Their excellence was  recognized from the first and they  grow     more  popular daily.

The average  for bulls of the beef breed was !fief>,  one animal fetching $32*.  which the wind entered as it would.  The rooms, were small, tlie furniture  scant and poor; but it was home to  this woman and to her husband and  her child, a little girl of four years.  There was a bit of lace curtain over  the windoAV, and a crocheted tidy on  a table in the "front room" under  the family Bible. There was a pathos in these simple decorations that  made the- eyes smart, for thoy spoke  plainly of hope, and discouragement,  of an innate love- of those trifles  which .change an ordinary room into  a home.  But there was one adornment in  that room, sufficient in itself to make  one forget the missing things; it  might not have, been so conspicuous  in,other surroundings, but in that particular place it stood out above everything 'else; it was just a good, but inexpensive, copy of one, of the famous  ���������paintings; a picture of a bit of lovely  country.  It was impossible not to wonder  how the picture came there. Who selected it? What prompted its selection? These, were ��������� the questions, the  woman who presided over that home  saw in the eyes of her visitor. We  were sitting together near a glowing  fire, a good light on the picture, the  woman sewing a child's gingham apron.  "Of coure. you have noticed our one  good picture and perhap have wondered how we came by it." she said by.  way of introduction. "We have had  that picture nearly two years. It has  made a great change in our home.  A'one of us .would part with it. We  consider it our choicest possession.      j  "Two years ago-the bottom seemed  lo have dropped out of the world for  me.

She came from the city, but  from the first she seemed happy out  here.    She found more 'beauty in this  place in one week than I had found  in it all the time  I  had   lived here.  She was always calling mo to the window to see something'beautiful, but. I  confess at first I couldn't see anything  but the common,  humdrum  things I  had   been   looking   at   for   years���������the-  things I had grown tired of. She insisted that I go for a walk with her  every day, no matter what excuse of  weariness or work I gave.    'It will do  you good.    Your work will go easier  and'faster after you have had a whiff j  of this prairie air'  was all the sympathy I got. j  "She stayed three months and nil  that time, every day of if. she talked  about beauty until we all. were infected, by it! She filled the house  with flowers, and laughed and sang  from morning till night. After she  went home she sent us th^ft picture.  We are still very poor, life is still  hard sometimes, but somehow now  we find a great deal of happiness in  our homo and we have learned to appreciate the beauty of the world outside."  That is the story of the influence of  a good  picture in one home. Another  I  "heard   at   a   farmers'   institute   in  Cedar County, Iowa, where a woman  was   telling   her   audience   something  about   the.  value  of  pictures    in  the  home.    She.said:  "I  have  a  friend,  the mother of four sons.   Tin's'mother i  was   bitterly     disappointed     because  every boy as he grew to manhood decided to be a sailor.   M can't imagine  why.' complained the mother.    '.None  of our relatives is a sailor, the  boys  have never seen the sen, know nothing  about  a  sailor's   life���������in   fact.   1  don't think they have seen  anything  larger than a  row boat or a eanoe.  I  don't   understand   how   they   got   the  wish  for a sailor's  life.'  " 'Don't you? With that picture before their eyes ever since they were  babies ' .1 answered, pointing to a  picture hanging on the sitting room  wall: a picture of a big ship with  sails filled, gayly riding over a danc  ing sea. 'if you didn't want your  boys to be sailors you should not'have  put that scene before them all their  lives.'

PREMIER  HUGHES ADVOCATES  A  BOLTED  DOOR  Points Out the Stupendous Follies of Former'Decaded in Per.  .'������������������ mitting the Germans to Control the Trade in Many Nec-  cessities Which  Should   be Within the Empire  Addressing the City Carlton Club,  at a'luncheon .several "weeks ago, Premier Hughes of Australia returned to  the question of the necessity for" an  immediate declaration of British policy in regard-to trade after the war.  Tlie eyes   of   Britishers   are open,  said Mr. Hughes.   A. "people slow to  anger, unsuspicious of guile in others,  foolishly generous in    throwing open  their land to tlie world, offering sanctuary to  all, even to those who proposed first to exploit and then to betray them���������it was a considerable tiv.-e  before  we    as a nation  woke to  the  peril, in which we stood.   But though  the awakening came late/ it has come  in    earnest.    Britain    is    thoroughly  aroused,    it   is stirred    to    its   very  depths.    jjJke  a strong    man    called  upon to fight for his   life, who casts  his outer garments    aside and strips  to   the    buff,   so   stilted conventions,  party shibboleths, cherished doctrines  have been put away, and ..quietly but  determinedly   the   nation is throwing  its   whole   energy   into the'fight.   To  me what is at once the most appealing  and   hopeful   sign   is   the unanimity  with which-the   people recognize the  futility' of their former view's'of national    and economic life.    They are  ready to. scrap    everything in which  they formerly believed in order to ensure a decisive victory over our enemy.   I emphasize the word "decisive'*  for nothing short of a decisive victory  will avail.  Germany's military power must be  utterly crushed,'for in no other way  can the peace of (he world be assured. Peace under any other conditions would be only a period of  feverish preparation, for another and  even more fearful struggle. When the  civilized world lias lifted herself from  the shambles, .it must-be able to rest  itself on the sweet, green pastures of  peace,     nnhauuted    by  the  dreadful  modern industrial-world. At the end  of this war the world' will be very  poor, ft will have wasted ita substance. It will have io set to work  with all its might" to produce more  wealth. And millions of its most effective producers will be dead. It  will have to build-more ships, bridges,  factories, manufacture machinery and  produce wealth generally. ;  All this requires much preparation.  It involves many very complex and  difficult questions. Of course if Brit-  tain is simply going to get what it  wants from Germany, as it did' before the war, the matter is very simple. But if not, then the'Producers' of  Britain and ' the .empire ought to be  told what'the-trade policy of Britain  after the war is going to be, so that  they can make their arrangements accordingly.  If we are to attack this question ef-  fcetively, there must be organization.  We.must attack it systematically and  scientifically.   Wo must see what Britain and    the    various   parts   of the  empire,   too,   can   produce   not   only  with  commercial,   but  with  national  profit.   We must exploit every opportunity, develop every resource within  the empire.    We must above all see  I that   our  industries  are  not depend-  f'ent   upon   tlie   raw  materials   which'  our potential or actual enemies control.     We  ought  not  to   commit  the  criminal error of building up our industries upon a foundation controlled  by the enemy.   Or very existence depends not only upon our naval,  but  our    mercantile    supremacy.    Shipbuilding, naval and mercantile marine,  is  the  very  breath  of our nostrils.    Guns, engines, machinery and  our vitals.

We were the pioneers  of the textile industry: It is one of our  .'great, industries.. Many millions of  capital, many hundred thousands of  men are employed in it; but can any  words sufficiently castigate a nation  who permitted the dyes, without which  the industry is clipped of its wings,  to be in tlie hands of our enemy? The  empire is capable of providing all the  sugar consumed in Britain. Yet we  placed ourselves in bondage to Germany and Austria, eating an inferior  article because it was cheap, while  fertile sugar-producing lands throughout the empire were allowed to lie  idle. This war has rung the death  knell of a policy of cheapness that  took no thought for the social and industrial welfare of the workmen, that  mistook mere wealth for greatness, no  matter whether the wealth was in our  hands or those, of German Jews.  Well, after this war, where are we  going to get our sugar���������from the  empire or from Germany and Austria? What new industries are we  going to establish; what old ones are  we going to develop? Where are we  going to get the raw materials for  our industries? What .preparations  are we going to make to cope with  the great demand for ships, bridges,  machinery, etc., after the war?  These arc questions    that ought to  be answered now.   To wait until the  end of the war is to play directly into  the hands of our enemy, to help him  to keep up his national Dpirits, to still  the loud murmuring   of   the German  people   and   the  ever-increasing  misgivings of the capitalists of Germany  by the promise of brisk employment  and good trade after the war. To delay the public declaration of what our  trade policy is to be is to make the  work of attempting to eradicate German influence in our midst infinitely  more difficult, and to make any radical change after the war impossible.  To pretend otherwise is to throw dust  in the eyes of the people, to play the  game of Germany, to prolong the war,  much has to be done, not only on the  field of battle, but in the fields of  commerce and industry. They recognize amongst the chief causes of this  war tlie desire of Germany to wrest  from Britain her industrial and commercial supremacy.. We. must kill the  hope that still buoys Germain- up  that after this war she will be able to  win back that position in our commerce and industry by which she was  not only able to exact great tribute  from us in the way of profits, to oust,  our manufacturers altog' 'her from  many trades, and to" make many absolutely dependent upon her for the  raw materials'of their industries, but  to imperil our national safety.  But if I-have interpreted the temper  of  tlie    people    of  the    empire  aright, they have determined that the  I end of this war will see not only the  downfall  of Prussian military power,  but of that insidious   and intolerable  influence    which   had    in very niany  cases reached a pe-jut when Gerrnany  actualiy    dominated    the trade,    no't  only  of  this   empire,   but  of  that of  our allies; and I rejoice with all my  heart and soul  to sen-how this feeling .moves    the people of Britain today.     But     tiiis     task     which    the  (people of the empire have set themselves���������the extirpation,  root,    branch  and seed, of German control and influence in  British  commerce and industry���������is no light one.

The influences that are working in its'interests !  are the more to be feared because they I  too frequently work beneath the surface.    And   the   German    cancer  has  eaten into our national  body in such  a fashion that we cannot cut it without seeming in some cases to cut into  the healthy flesh.  There are some people in this country today���������calling themselves Hritish  citizens���������who would rather we lost the  war than that the German trade with  h'ngland and German influence in  English trade should be lost.

Some millins of men  have been withdrawn altogether from  production. To these must be added  very large numbers who are engaged  in producing munitions, clothing, etc.,  for those in our army and navy.    AJ1  I these millions are engaged, along with  the millions of the allies and of the  enemy, in destroying wealth and life.
