Canadian Discoverers

Stockholm, October 26.—A council of the teachers of Karolioska io.
stitute this eveniog decided to give
the Nobel prize for medicine for
1923 to tbe Canadian professors of
Toronto university, Dr. F. F. Banting and J.J. It. MacLeod for tbeir

It was also decided to give the
Nobel prize of 1922 half to Prof.
Archibald Hill of University college,
London, because of his discoveries
in tbe physiology of tbe muscles,
and the second balf to Prof. Otto
Mayerhofoi the University of Kiel
for his researches concerning oxygen,
lactic acid and consumption of muscles."
Victoria, November 2.—While
the question of taxation will naturally take a good deal of time during
tbe legislative session which has just
started, tbere seems to be a consensus of opinion that any relief must
start   with  tbe   primary industries

Tbis is tbe view taken by Premier! ence he saw in   London.    The
Oliver and expressed by bim in
similar terms to a delegation of
theater owners and managers wbo
appeared before him to suggest that
tbe amusement tax be reduced by
at least 50 per cent.
The people of the province will
understand tbat tbo amusement tax
represents 10 per cent of tbe admission to all entertainments other than
those of a charitable or a patriotic
nature. Tbe moving picture theaters
in the citiee have included (he tax
in tbe admission price, but the theaw
ters are not absorbing the tax.

railway commissioners thata further
10 per cent reduction on grain would

IN lin* with new legislation being
* passed in the various States of the
American Union aimed to diminish
the alarming number oi accident!
through reckless driving of automobiles, particularly on level railroad
crossings, the Board of Railway
Commissioner* for Canada has r*-
iitested the Canadian Pacific Railway to submit Information bearing
upon similar dangerous practices by
motorist* on various portion* of its
system so that uae may be made of
the information with a view to endeavoring, through education, to
minimize the occurrence of sueh d*n-
rrrous practices.
In a Bulletin issued by the Board
of Railway Commissioners on June
ISth, 1923, 54 cases of danger at pro
teoted cro**ingt are died for the
period October, 1932, to May, 1923,
and oi these fifty are declared to
have bem due to the carelessness of
motor drivers. "Motor accidents,"
says the bulletin, "srt becoming
more frequent. Every sane motorist
deplores this. If accidents are to be
lessened, the sane motorist must educate the culpably negligent motor-
is**."
All highway crossings are by law
protected by signs, and they are only
dangerous when the driver of the automobile makes them so. They are
not dangerous if motorists will take
a small part ef the care they exercise
In turning on a eity street. It is tha
motorist's carelessness that makes
them dangerous. The train has right
of way. Everyone knows what may
happen if the plainly seen warning*
are disregarded at a point where th*
motor car can stop while the train
cannot.
The surprising part si tt alto is
that safeguards and precaution*
erected by the railroads ar* so often
entirely ignored. Time after time
newspaper reports show that crossing alarm bells, barrier gates and
even watchmen waving "stop" sig-
tals mean nothing to th* man in the
ef-mmm        '****" ""*V*S°
CtmiftB
motor car who is determined to beat
the train to It.
Coroners' juries are usually more
discriminating and put thc blame
where it belongs, but the general
public, seeing the usual newspaper
heading, "Train Crashes into Motor
Car," starts out with the impression
that the train must necessarily be to
blame, when, as • matter of fact, a
fairer statement of the case would
be "Another Auto Gets in Path of
l'ast Train." Quite as often, too, the
heading should read, "Flying Auto
Dashes into Moving Train." Frequently the auto strikes the train
well behind the engine, a convincing
Indication that the motorist too frequently treats the railroad crossing
with th* same casual notice that he
Kives the intersection of a quiet
country road.
Out of 32 level crossing accidents
that happened In Ontario during
1923, 22 were th* result of the motorist not heeding the stop signal, and
seven were the result of running into
the lowered gates or actually passing
under them after they were lowered
or while they were being lowered.
One man had no headlights and apparently did not soa the gates were
down while the remainder in other
ways tried to cross in front of the
engine in order to save time.
In an editorial on this question, th*
Toronto Star says that: "In a country Hke this, with its magnificent distances, and railway systems with
twenty thousand miles of track, th*
time may never come when all level
crossings wHI be eliminated. With
motor car* m u*e everywhere there
is no railway crossing so remote but
that a motorist may use It. It ia his
business to it* that he does so at a
safe moment. It is his business for
two reason*: (1) because it is the
presence of him and his car at that
time and place, and not the coming
of the train, whieh creates the risk of
a crash) and (2) because if there
should be a crash he and his car will
b* crushed, and not th* train,"
periments may lead to the creatioh
of two new sexes, be says.
Dr. Wood saw tbe bead of a male
beetle transferred to tbe body of a
female beetle, wbile the female's
bea was transferred to the body of
the decipitatedmale.
Botb beetles recovered and showed
a complete reversal of form tbe
head apparently determining tbe sex
habits. The new sexes thus created
were called masculi e female and
feminine-male.
"If tbis transmissin of sex characteristics by tbe exchange of heads
could be applied to the human
race," Dr. Wood is quoted ae saying,
"the possibilities would be startling. The head of a famous scientist
about to die could be grafted to the
body of a faborer or convict who
was about to be executed. Io tbis
way the brain of tbe genins would
never be lost to mankind."
BHIW ID LIFE
Life Restored in Infant
After It Had Been Apparently Dead Three-
Quarters of an Hour
New York, November 1.—Mrs.
Pauline Fishbien is tbe mother of
tbe champion heavyweight twinBof
Greater New York. Boro late yesterday, eacb weighed 10 pounds.
Hospital physicians by use of adrenalin restored life to one of tbe
babies after it bad been apparently
lifeless three quarters of an bour.
All otber methods of revivification were first resorted to, but were
unavailing.
"Medical science will be interested
in learning of tbe babies' unusual
weight, but it is still more remarkable wben life can be restored after
so long a time," said Miss Mirian
Watnick,  hospital  superintendent.
"As far as present records indicate, tbe twins are tbe heaviest
born in New York."
The average weight for eacb twin
is five pounds, physicians state.
It has been aunouncsd by Dr.
Sutherland, miuister of public
works, that lie intends to call for
tenders for the erection of a
fireproof permanent library building
for the University of British Columbia. As au indicotimi of the growth
of this provincial institution of learn
iu-', it is intern-ting to observe that
tlio books to bo housed already number 50,000 voluineH.
It will bo undoistood, of course,
that the cost of tlio building for
whiiih tenders are iilioiit to bu called
will bo met entirely from the sule of
adjacent lauds that belong to tho people of tho province. These have been
sot aside fur the purpose of furnishing the wherewithal essential to the
development of the university.
After his tour of central British
Columbia, wheu he addressed meet*
ings all along tbe Canadian National railway, Premier Oliver declared himself as highly pleased
witb induetrial conditions and
stated tat tbe progress made since
his last visit was remarkable. He
incidentally found tbe public com-
plaining little if any against tbe administration of public affairs in Brit
lBh Columbia today. The government is stronger tban ever, be reported to his colleagues, and the
rntmfest approval sbown will made
tbe path easier when next year's

A thermos bottle has become an article of
common use, though only invented afew years
ago by Professor Delcar. It Is just a double -
walled flask with the air drawn out between
the walls. This vacuum prevents the passage
of heat or cold waves. If it were possible to
make the vacuum perfect no heat would pass
through. Why should we not have vacuum
houses; two concrete walls and a vacuum be -
tween them? A little heat in winter would
be all they would need. Unfortunately the
walls would have to be bridge-work to stand
the pressure weight of the air outside, 14.7
pounds per square inch, which would prevent
the vacuum from being quite perfect.

On the Berkely estate, Glos., England, are
two or three elms which foretell the weather
each spring. Regular observation of the leaves
has been kept for years, and it has been found
that when the color of the leaf has been ordinary green, like that of their sisters around
them, the summer has been invariably wet.
Some years it has come out quite white, and
on each occasion a dry season has followed.
This time the leaf is quite white, with only a
few green here and there, and the interpreta*

exceedingly dry, but the tree's suerabundance
of green leaves correctly foretold the stormy
times of later May and the rest of the snm*
seventy and eighty, says liev. W. F. Johnson,
D D. Sixty three years ago he and his wife
sailed from Boston to begin their missionary
service in India. Dr. Johnson, who is now
82 years of age, has contributed very largely
to the literature made accessible to Indian
Christians by translation and also by authorship, and in this field,perhaps,he has achieved
his greatest success as a missionary. During
the last teu years the simplified Hindi version of the four gospels was prepared and
published, and fifty three thousand of these
have already been put into circulation.
When is a man at his prime? From 28 to
49 for the averge man. Long ago a man was
considered at his strongest and most beautiful between 20 and 30, at his best as a leader
or manager from 30 to 40, as an experienced
man of business from 40 to 50, and as a coun
cillor or judge of other men's troubles from 50
to 60. Roughly these divisions are to some
extent still correct. Modern life, however,
with its increased opportunities for travel aud
education, so speeded up conditions that
young men of business and politics have by
the twenties often acquired enough experience
to allow them to rise to their prime early in
life. At the other end of life, altered social
conditions and better medical attention have
allowed physical efficiency to be retained far
longer.

The aeroplanes carrying mail and passengers between London and Paris now actually
have a printing outfit on board them and
publish a newspaper on the voyage. Each
day before the sailing hour the latest news of
the world, political, financial and general, is
rushed to the editor. During the flight news
is sent out by wireless from London and Paris
at regeular intervals, so that the aerial editor
is in constant touch with affairs. The news is
prepared, set up, and the paper printed during the aeroplane's flight. The editions are
delivered to the towns over which the aeroplane flies by means of parachutes. The aerial
newspaper contains stock quotations, special
features and news in general.
Mrs. O. 11 Belmont, of Newport, has been
vaporizing again. She thinks marriage may be
a failure and that it is close to slavery. She
has tried it twice, picking riches and gilt each
time, and, of a consequence, hasn't learned
much worth while. Whether one be married
or single, -no can not escape slavery except
by becoming an idling parasite stjoh as Mrs.
Belmont's "set" knows so well. If one works
in this world—works conscientiously for a
living or the bettterment of self and home and
community—oue is a slave. That is true of
wife as well as husband, husband as well as
wife. Edison, the great inventor, is an abject
slave to the genius ihat possesses him. So is
Steinmetz. So is Henry Ford. So are thousands of others whom we mistakenly call free.
But the world wouldn't be worth much and
there would be no progress without such
slavery. Production, progress, active moving
life, are all slavery, and h must be so for the
good and uplift of the world. The married
man, if he be honest in heart and purpose, is
a slave to his work and family. The wife, also
honest, is slave to her home, her husband, her
children, the last most of all. Neither is made
so by written law, vow or barter, but because
it is human nature at its highest and-.best.
Because it is father devotion Bnd mother love,

Toronto has one more fraternal association.
Itis a club for hoboes. Every member is an

"Wonderful indeed is the power of
the voice."—Cicero.
The power of the voice is the success
of the telephone. It was in the endeavor
to transmit sound that the telephone was
invented, and the1 great factor of its de
velopment into an article of very common
use is that direct conversation may be
carried on.
Because it enables one's personality to
be sent is the reason that the telephone
promotes friendships and intimacy, and
brings about closer relations between
those in business. The pleasure of hearing the voice you know makes long distance the casual practice of every one.

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To.provide a Home aud Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
evon a few of the many of such unfortunate*!, who, for the lack of suoh ser>s
vice, perish every year; and to return theae little ones to their parents, at
soliobl age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and graatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the various provinces reveals the fact that there
aro at the presant tl-ine nearly 260 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent,work. In England, some time ago, Sir Ar-
}hur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only'one iu the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the preseut objective of the BotUd. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and ao
early and generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.

The world's record for grain train!
was shattered by the ^Canadian Pa>
cific Railway dn October 6th, with
a monster train of 186 car loads of
wheat, over a mile long, whieh operated between Stoughton and Areola.
The contents of the ears, 185,000
bushels, weighed S.6-66 tons.
. All grata loading reeorde in Al-
*•"■ were completely smashed by
the Canadian Pacific on October 10th
when the Cowpany loaded 758 cars,
representing at least 1,065,200 bushels. If these ears were placed together they would make up a freight
train about six mileB in length, and
a baker's dozen of these trains would
extend from Calgary to Banff, a distance of 81 miles.
  i
A record in western railroad construction waa established on the
Canadian Pacific Lanigan-Molfort
line recently, when the last mile of
track between Lanlgan and Pleasant-
«* w*» completed in one day. D.
A. Livingstone, engineer in charge,
reports that seventy per cent of his
crew of K wen British harvesters.
Federal and Provincial Departments ef Agriculture co-operated in
the purchase ta the British Isles of
a large stock of horses, swine and
sheep, including sheep owned by His
Majesty the Riag, which arrived
here recently. This is the second
shipment of cattle to Canada through
the ce-oporation of th* a-gricultural
departm-mta with sheep and swine
breeders throughout the Dominion.
T. K. Doherty, the Canadian Commissioner in the International Institute of Agriculture, •stimates Can-
ada's exportable wheat surplus this
year at 300 million bushels, as
against 150 millions from the United
States, 110 from Argentina, 50 from
Australia, and 15 from Russia. Canada, in fact, may be expected to
supply nearly half the wheat exports of the whole world—300 out of
•75 million bushels.
E. W. Beatty, K.C. President of
the Canadian Pacific Railway, speaking at important centres on his recent extensive tour through th*
Canadian West, sounded a note of
optimism, de-daring that the general improvement in Canadian business conditions rendered an accompanying growing pessimism entirely unjustifiable. Stressing th*
need for a vigorous, intensive immigration policy by the government, he put forward as suggestions
that the department of immigration
and colonization should issue a general invitation through Great Britain,
the United States and certain European countries, for settlers, and
that greater advantage should b*
taken of the favorable policies towards emigration to Canada adopted
by the governments of Great Britain
and other countries.

School of Agriculture at Olds, Alberta. Oa a one-acre patch 105

Ten Commandments
j For the Motorist
The ten couonianduients of good
driving are as follows:
1, Drive od tbe right side of the
road; it is juat as good as the left.
'2. Slow down wben  approaching
a crossroad] it is nearly  as  danger
ous as a railroad crossing.
3 Look out for children. You
can never tell wbat they will do,and
you are always in the wrong if you
hit one.
4. Try to belp iustend of hinder
tho traffic ollicer; he is there for
your gOor, and he's got a tough job.
6. Be sure tbat your "dimmers"
really dim; it's no joke driving into
a blinding glare, as you probably
know.
(j. Bead and obey the warning
signs; tbey are not put up as ornaments.
7. If you feel you've got to speed
-do it where it won't kill anybody
but yourself,
8. When making minor repairs
stop where  your  car   may beaeen
from both directions; otherwise you
may stop longer tban you antici
pate.
9. Speeding around corners iB a
straight route to tbe hospital. Don't
race past a stopped street car. Some
day the jury will call it manslaughss
fig X'1
10. Use discretion. The fact tnat
you had the right of way won't
hring anys-M-ilv-tetok to U{fa^at*)t,_of
all yourself.
;
The shortest
thing in the
world--
i
isn't a mosquito's eyelash or a gnat's
whisker, or any other part of any insect
whatsoever-IT IS THE MEMORY OF
THE PUBLIC.
If you doubt this ask the first men
men you meet the following questions:
■JI When did the R31 cross the Atlantic?
Who was her pilot? On What date was
Lord Kitchener drowned? What was
the name of the ship that blew up and
almost wiped out the city of Halifax?
What German sub murine torpedoed
the Lusilania?
It is a safe bet that you would not
get one correct answer.
Now do you see the necessity of persistent advertising? When the details
of events of world wide importance are
so soon forgotten how do you expect
the public to remember you unless
YOU TELL'EM-and keep telling them?
ADVERTISE!

The Ultimate in Radio
Reception
EVERY ADVANCE of civilization, has depended
upon thc progress of communication. From the
Athenian runner to the instantaneous transmission
of intelligence by Radio is a triumph of science. As
one Athenian runner was preferred over another for
speed and accuracy, so today Yelco Radiophones
are chosen for the most perfect reception of Radio
Broadcasting.
A Yelco Receiver will give you hundreds of dollars of value in joy for every dollar it costs you.  It
will never disappoint you or your friends.
Let us arrange a demonstration for you.
