"Short" Courses
W, H. Brittain, provincial pathologist and entumologist, delivered a
lecture in the Miners' Uniun hall
last Saturday afternoon before tbe
members of the Grand Forks Valley
Farmers' institute. Mr. Brittain
spoke on "Insects and Fungi in Relation to Horticulture," with special
reference to pear-blight and silver-
leaf. Fire blight, be said, was a
disease that had been known for
thirty years, and was caused by-
green aphis. The varieties most
susceptible tu tbi* disease were, in
tbe urder named, tbe Spitzenberg,
Wagener, Transcendent crab, Jonathan, Grimes Gulden and Mcintosh
Red. Silver-leaf, be ssid, was a
fungus diseaae, and ususally entered
the tree through some wound. At
the conclusion of his address be was
tendered a hearty vote of thanks.
Four other speakers were on the
program fur lectutes during the
afternoon and evening, but owing to
the adoption by the institute of a
resolution censuring M. S. Middle-
ton, assistant horticulturist, for circulating alleged reports derogatory
to tb* district, they refused to appear.

Only one* In history has the roar ot
tb* mlgbty (alia of Niagara bean *i-

that morning people living near the
falls were surprised by a Strang* hush,
as startling ln effect a* would be an
unexpected and tremendous explosion
In. an ordinarily qnlet community.
Many persona thought they had been
afflicted wltb deafness, and all went
oppressed by a sensation ot dread.
Wltb tbe coming of light tb* amused
people comprehended tbe reason for
Ihe disquieting silence. Where tbey
were used to teeing tbe great falls wat]
a bare precipice down tbe face of which
a few small and constantly diminishing
streams trickled. Above th* falls, Instead ot a rushing river, -was only a
naked channel, with insignificant
brooka splashing among th* rock*. All
day long tbls astounding condition continued, and persons walked, dryshod
trom tb* Canadian aide, along the vary
edge of the precipice, as tar ag Goat

of extreme severity, and Ice of unprecedented thickness formed on Lake Erie.
When the breakup came toward th*
end of March a strong southeast wind
was blowing, and the ice was piled into
banks as large as icebergs.
Toward the night ot March 80 tb*
wind suddenly changed to tbe opposite
direction. Increased to a terrific gale
and drove the Ice into the entrance of
Niagara river with such force that a
huge dam waa formed, of sucb thickness and solidity as to be practically
Impenetrable and strong enough to
hold back tbe great mass of water

Th* Faoulty That Enables Yeu te Preserve Yeur Equilibrium.
lt Is nlmost a 1,000 to 1 bet that yon
don't know you have a sixth sense.
Bnt you bare, nevertheless. It It
known as tbe sense of equilibrium.
The sixth sense Is located ln the
semicircular canals ot the Inner ear,
and whenever a person hi ln danger
ot falling or losing his equilibrium a
warning message Is communicated to
the brain. For years physiologist*
have been puzzled to know the function of tbese canals, because it was
proved definitely that tbey had nothing
to do with the sense of bearing or tbe
proper working of the auricular organ.
Thus they came to be considered aa
semicircular tubes, almost at right angles to one another and full of a clear

enr-nls enable a person to tell wbat position he Is in no matter whether be is

position assumed.
Steeplejacks and other workers on
blgh buildings wbo finally lose their
nerve and are afraid to go very far
above the ground hare lost part of
their sense ot equilibrium. Examinations by physicians in such Instances
have shown that their semicircular
glands were diseased. It was largely

cow and a small cow.
Other facts besides size and production should bo tnken Into consideration. Among these are age ot maturity and the age at which the cow may,

Urged by German to Accept Title and
Then Sell it to Kaiser
Paris, Prance.—Viscount Alfred Ue
Breull, a young French explorer, has
recently had an experience In empire
building, which recalls the adventures
of M. Jacques l-ebaudy. The French
explorer, who had acquired some ta-
liuenco over many primitive tribes-fl
Arabia und Syria, was approached In
1910 by a German named Nicholas
The German proposed that the viscount shotild return to Asia and Induce
the tribes hy presents to declare their
union und Independence and elect him
ltlng. Subsequently the viscount
should sell his title and right to tho
German emperor. Viscount do Brcull
wus skeptical as lo the funds necessary for the undertaking, but when a
Frankfort bank sent a check for $40,-
000 to be paid for the title ot king of
Arabia and ot Syria when it should
have be tm obtained, ho agreed <p embark on the adventure.
Benz gave hiin an advance of M60O,
with which he departed for Arabia.
Some time afterward twelve tribes
assembled in a "djema" at El Aloun
with the emirs who governed them,
and this'assembly presided over by
Abou Hassan, proclaimed the independence of Arabia and Syria, and
elected the viscount monarch with the
title of "King Alfred I."
Abcu Hassan wus made grand vizier, und the twelve emirs were appointed to be ministers. Further, a
solemn contract was drawn up forming a veritable charter. In the first
urticle It was stipulated that the Independent kingdom of Arabia and Syria should be placed under the "protection of tlle Virgin Mary und ot St.
Marltis. The viscount de Breull had
these documents authenticated by the
Egyptian authorities and did homage
to the apostolic delegate at Cairo.
Proud of his success, thc 'king explorer' Iben returned to Paris to
collect the $40,000. To his amazement and disappointment he found
that Nicholas Benz was In jail, having
been sentenced to two years' imprisonment. Further, the viscount discovered that Benz had withdrawn the
$40,000 from the bank.
He lodged a charge of embezzlement and one of swindling
against Benz, hut as the funds had
been sent from Frankfort to Benz directly and placed in a Parisian bank
solely in his name, the Investigating
magistrate decided that there was no
ground to.- an Indictment.

chines in German colonies are already,
worked out.
In the flrst place the colonial secretary considers that aeroplanes will
render valuable service in transmitting
instructions in case ot risings and Insurrections; ln the second place he
proposes to establish an aerial postal
service ln districts where as yet thero
aie no ordinary means ot communication, and iu the third place he Intends
to employ aeroplanes in colonial land
It Is reported that a number ot higher colonial officials now ln Germany

But, alas! there were a good many
good souls who insisted on taking
out credit books.
He began to feel very keenly that
this sort ot thing must be stopped before lt went too tar, so he posted up
the following notice lust inside tbe
door of his shop where all could read:
Please don't ask for credit as a refusal often offends.
But, alas! this delicate hint direct
had no effect whatsoever, and the
struggling small trader nearly tore hla

Doctors say that about one person
in eveVy four suffers more or less
from piles, and who can imagine a
more annoying, torturing, . disagreeable ailment?
After trying a few treatments without success, and as the ailment grows
■worse, the medical doctor it contultod.
An operation, he says. Is necessary.
Tou think of the suffering, expense
•nd risk to life Itself, and hesitate
before taking such a step.
In many thousands of such cases
Sr. Chase's Ointment has made
thorough and lasting cures. Read
thli letter for the proof.
Mr. Charles Beauvals, a well-
known citizen ot St. Jean, Que.,
writes:—"For 14 years I suffered
from chronic piles, and considered
my case very serious. I was treated
by a celebrated doctor who could not
help me and ordered a surgical operation as the only means of relief.
"However. I deolde*- to try Dr.
Chase's'Ointment, and obtained great
relief from the flrst box. By the use
of three boxes I was entirely cured.
This ls why It gives me great pleasure
to recommend Dr. Chase's Ointment
to all who suffer from piles as a
■ treatment of the greatest value."

That Elusive Object
For certain districts "object" drawing has become the vogue in schools,
and troops of chubby-faced children
may be seen tripping to school armed with such weapons as hammers,
hatchets, chisels, buckets, and similar
domestic articles to be used as "objects."
Recently one of these classes was
about to commence, when a small boy
sidled up tearfully to hiB teacher's
desk, and burst forth with a convulsive gulp:
Please, teacher, I've swallowed me
Oh, Billy, what ever was It? cried

Left Weak, Miiei. ble and Pery to
Disease in Many Forms
One ot the most treacherous diseases afflicting the people of Canada
during the winter months Is la grippe,
or influenza. It almost invariably
ends with a complication of troubles.
It tortuij-s Its victims with alternate
fevers and chills, headaches and backaches. It leaves him an easy prey lo
pneumonia, bronchitis, and evejt consumption. Indeed tbe deadly aftereffects of la grippe may leave the victim a chronic invalid. You can
avoid la grinpe entirely by keeping
the blood rich and red by an occasional use of Dr. Williams* Pink Pills. If
you have not done this and the disease attacks you, you can banish It-
deadly after-effects through tho use of
this same great blood-building, nerve-
restoring 'medicine. Here Is proof
of the wonderful power ot Dr. Williams' Pink Pill* over this trouble.
Mr. Emmanuel Laurin, St. Jerom-5,
Que., says: "I wu seized with a severe attack of la grippe. I was ob
llged to stop work and remain in mv
bed for several weeks, and while I
appeared to get over the flrst stages
of the trouble, I did not regain my
usual health. I suffered from headaches, loss of appetite and extreme
weakness. I did not sleep well at
nights, and would arise In the morning feeling tired and worn out. This
continued for about two months during which time I was taking treatment
but apparently without avail. Then I
was advised to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and I got a halt dozen boxes. By
the time I had taken three boxes there
was a decided Improvement, and actually before I had completed the sixth
box I waa enjoying my old-time health.
I was strong as ever, could sleep well
and eat well, and no longer Buffered
from lassitude and headaches. I have
proved tho valuo of Dr. William--'
Pink Pills for the pernicious aftereffects of la grippe, and can therefore
recommend them to other sufferers."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills curo by
going to the root of the trouble ln tho
blood, which they enrich, and mak-*
•red and pure. These pills cure all
troubles due to bad blood, and If you
are ailing you should start to curo
yourself to-day by taking this great
medicine. Bold by all medicine dealers or by mall at EO centj a box or

G.T.P. Town Planning
In a recent thoughtful review of the
events of 1912 a western writer has
this to say of Grand Trunk Pacific
The railroad's methods of building
a real town are most Interesting.
Take for instance, the line from Edmonton to Calgary, which runs
through 233 miles of the richest farming country in the west and which
eventually extends to the International
boundary, where lt will connect with
railways giving direct communication
to the Important cities of tho United
States. Along this line are all of
the conditions which go to make up
wealthy farming communities, and
thriving young cities. Had the
Grand Trunk Pacific bcen Intent on
making sales alone, It might have
planted, boomed and sold a dozen
cities between Calgary and Edmonton, and might perhaps have made an
Immediate profit of several million
dollars. But the road looked ahead
to the reaction. Bo It sent out Its
best engineers and Investigated, and
ln the end decided to build but one
city In that distance ot 233 miles, Instead of several. At the same time
lt placed on a dozen or more smaller
townsttes, which were ln no way to
be advertised as possible big towns;
but which were to be made thriving
little places serving the needs of their
communities. But midway between
Calgary and Edmonton, 123 miles from
the former and 111 from the latte.*,
was found the Ideal location and conditions for a town that would become
a city. It Is not a "happen-chance"
town, lt ls the divisional point ot the
Grand Trunk Pacific between Calgary
and Edmonton and though It Is only
a little ovsr a year old, lt already has
five miles of track with three more under way, repair shops, round-houses,
stock yards, elevators, hotels, over 30
places doing a hustling business and
approximately 500 people. Within
two years I predict that lt will have
live or six thousand. Conditions and
not wildcat booming, will compel a rap-
Id increase ln population. These
conditions are a result of what might
be called "Intensive" town building
rather than extensive. The Grand
Trunk Pacilic made sure of conditions
before lt started—conditions which
will in time place It among the Important cities ln the west.
