Visitors from the cities talk of
hard times-and a hopeless outlook. It is a fight between Capital
and labor. The man who works
with his hands wants a fair share
of the rewards of labor, but he
does not seem to be, quite sure
tharhe is not already getting it.
Capital wants the lion share and
it is not sure that it is not getting
it. There is a bewildering
vagueness about the most plausible explanations of the trouble.
Capital is afraid to venture upon
the sea^ and will hug the shore
until the tumult has subsided,
and Labor cannot" go alone. It
.looks .like a long storm. The
sky-may not clear soon, the sea
may long be rough. In Greenwood there is no distress. Every
workman is employed, there is
money in our saving's banks and
our children are stilt fed. .
Because of the industrial
tumult, prices of farm produce
are bound -to drop. Money will
become so scarce ' in the , great
cities that there will not ��� be
enough of it to buy anabundancc
of food. -The difference between
{the absolute necessity aud a full
supply is very great. The people
of the" cities could live oh one
third of the food they consumed
in war times and be none the
worse for it. It is the' gormaud
waste that makes, food dear .and
prices for farm produce high, .in
civilized countries like. Canada.
The price of eggs could \hot re-,
main high it the cities of the
.world; werecto>cut- off- half their
consumption, and they are.likely
to do it. It -is the; same "with

everything. When the war sayings are all, spent-"the people'of

Disarmament and tke  Individual  Citizen
The outstanding question in world politics today is disarmament���the
reaching of some international understanding which will put an end to thc
feverish race between nations to outdo each other in the raising and equipping of enormous armies, the construction of great navies, the inauguration of powerful aerial squadrons, and the development of chemicals and thc
sciences along channels of destruction, and, with a cessation of such unholy
and savage activities bring about an enormous lessening of the burden of
taxation and the devotion of national revenues to thc improvement of the
physical and educational well-being of the people.
Everybody is concerned in the consummation of such an international
understanding, but the average man and woman nevertheless looks upon
the problem of arriving at an agreement as being the sole business and responsibility of Governments and statesmen; in a word, of those for the
time being in authority in their respective countries. As a result, the
average man and woman takes only an academic interest in this outstand-
ig question, and proceeds daily to think, speak and act in a manner which
operates to make the realization of world disarmament extremely difficult.
With the defeat of Germany and the abdication of thc Kaiser, the overthrow of Russian Czardom, the smash-up of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy, and the brcaking-up of the old Turkish Empire, thc last remaining
strongholds of old world militarism and autocracy came to an end. With
the exception of Russia, which is still-undergoing thc birth pangs of its
new regeneration, thc leading nations of the world are now under a democratic form of government. That is to say, the people arc themselves thc
rulers and the arbiters of their own national fate. Thcy, and thcy alone,
can definitely and permanently decide upon national policy. Governments
arc thc creatures of the people, and are controlled, made nnd uii-madc by
thc voles of the people. To an ever increasing degree, too, thc women have
an equal voice with the men in determining the fate of Governments and
thc national policies of their homeland. If thc people once make up their
minds that there shall be disarmament, that thcy will no longer pour out ,
their hard won earnings to bc used to supply machines of war wherewith |
to destroy their fellowmcn, Governments will, because thcy must, obey.
There is, however, it must bc admitted, a fighting instinct inborn in the
whole human race. It cannot bc wholly eradicated, nor would it be well
for thc race if it were. It is thc instinct which leads the race to push ever
onward and overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles. It is the
fighting instinct which makes for progress. But the .lime is long since.past
when lhat instinct should be so perverted as to result in a striving for mastery of others through thc brutal, animal method, of destruction���the employment of strong arm methods against the weak. ���,
After all, what is''one of the most fruitful sources of national ill-will,
��� - leading to thc making of warlike preparations by one racial group of people
against another? Is is noL to bc found in thc pin-pricking policy which so
many people thoughtlessly indulge in at the expense of the people of another race, color or nationality? The people of one country make ridicule
of the habits and customs of another. This is resented and a feeling of
animosity and ill-will is engendered whereas a mutual recognition of each
other's good qualities, which is just as easy of cultivation, would quickly
develop a feeling of admiration.
Thc newspapers of a country quickly reflect the views and feelings of
thc people among whom thcy circulate. If there is. a pin-pricking tendency
among thc people, it is not long before thc press is engaged in it, and thc
sharp sayings of the press in one land arc quickly seized upon by thc press
in another country, and soon a wordy warfare is on stirring up thc passions
and prejudices of one nation and people against another, and forever cultivating ill-feelings by raking up all the old quarrels and troubles of bygone
ages. Visitors from a foreign country arc chagrined and humiliated by
careless remarks about their country, flag or people, and they return homc
entertaining anything but cordial feelings towards the country in which such
remarks are uttered. Thus, from comparativly trivial cause, there arise
those national misconceptions and distrust of other peoples which, when
sonic difference of opinion occurs between two countries, are quickly fanned
into a flame and a condition of public opinion created which makes it extremely .-difficult, if not impossible, for thc Governments of thc opposing
countries to make necessary compromises in order to reach an amicable settlement. And it is against just such contingencies that armaments are
maintained.   - ..-    / ..'      -���,".' "'   ��� -. ������ -' ;    - .-
The ordinary citizen can, therefore, do much to bring about world-disarmament by merely keeping a close watch upon his tongue and by steadfastly refusing to- indulge in, what is "after all more or less senseless-and
certainly utterly futile; carping at and criticism..'of, other nations, races and
people.   ..." . . ' . .  ���      . .-'''" V

Has Way To Drive
Planes By Steam
Inventor Claims Soaring -Power Will
Be Greatly Increased
Invention of a system "of steam propulsion for airships is claimed by
Captain W. P. Purtnall, who was a
British naval officer during the war.
It is maintained that the new system will function at altitudes hitherto
unattainable with the ordinary type
of internal combustion engine.
Thc invention is said to ��� do away
completely with the ordinary, boiler, thc steam being generated ,by
means of internal-combustion power or heat energy. The superheated steam heat energy is supplied
to special steam motors which are reversible and can be controlled from a
central controL station.
Only heavy oil is vised as fuel and
il is claimed that the driving machinery can be safely placed inside thc
frame of the airship instead of in separate gondolas outside," thus bringing about a great reduction in air
resistance aud consequently reducing
thc power required for propulsion.
Thc engine or 'steam motors," as
Captain Burtnall calls them, arc
the double-acting type requiring

Pieper, wife of a well-known farmer
living at Cottonwood, Sask.
"For years J,had indigestion so bad
that I couldn't eat a thing without
suffering misery afterwards. Nothing
agreed with me, and at times I was
so bloated up with' gas I would have
awful smothering spells. My nerves
were in a terrible state, and I was
bothered a good deal with constipation. I also had violent headaches,
and at nights slept so little I never
felt like getting  out  of bed in  the
morning. V , .     .

I know how to repay it is to tell

Live Stock Industry
Want Action Taken to-Secure Mar-
,    * .   ket in U.S.
C W. Peterson, western editor and
rancher, suggests, the formation of a
Canadian pool consisting of government representatives, bankers, breeders, and capitalists to form an- effective line of defence in view o'f the
present condition of the-live stock industry in'Western Canada. He urged
that immediate diplomatic negotiations be opened with the United
States to procure for Canada free entry for animals and .animal products,
pleading that even an unlimited overseas market could not be compared
with free, access to the Chicago market. Hc believed that if the situation
were placed before the Canadian public and they were appealed to there
would bc no trouble in subscribing
$100,000,000 for the pool.

A.Woman Homesteader
City Girl Makes a Success of Farm-
, ing iii Western Canada
, Another name added to the list of
women who are successfully/ operating farms in Western Canada >is that
of May V. Hazlett, an English girl
who for four years has lived alone-xon
a homestead in the Touchwood.Hills,
and fnade it pay. Her brother, who
homesteaded the land, was killed in
the Canadian forces at Vimy Ridge,
and Miss Hazlett, who was working
as. a stenographer, and tired of the
eternal pounding, determined to go
contrary to the advice to sell the farm
and though shc had never lived in
the country, decided to operate it(her-
sclf. ' Success has attended her efforts and she now owns several head
of horses, a fine bunch of cattle, and
has more than one hundred, acres, under cultivation. She 'is again reversing thc order of things as having
built a Western home she is returning
lo England to marry her fiance and
bring him' out to the. Saskatchewan
farm/ She is an ardent advocate of
homesteads for women.
Many mothers have reason to bless
Mother Graves' Worm Exterminator,

I. Paul arid Silas in Jail (w. 19-26.)*
1. The occasion (w. 19-24). When
the demon was cast out of the maid
her supernatural power was gone;
therefore, the source of revenue was
dried up. This so exasperated her
owners that they~had Paul and Silas
arraigned before the magistrates on a
false charge. Those men ought
to have rejoiced that such a blessing
had come to this.poor girl. They
cared more for their gain than for her
welfare. This is true of the iniquitous crowding together of the poor in
unsanitary quarters in ^our tenement
districts and.thc neglect of precautions for the safety of employees in
shops " and stores. Without any
chance to defend- themselves they
were stripped and beaten by the angry
mob and then Temanded to jail, and
wcrc made fast' in stocks in the inner
2. Their behavior in jail (v. 25).
Thcy were praying and singing hynms
to God. It seems quite natural that
fhey should pray, under such conditions, but to sing hymns under such
circumstances is astonishing to all
who havc not come into possession of
the   peace   of   God  through   Christ.
Even with their backs lacerated and
smarting, and feet fast in stocks compelling, the most painful- attitude in
the dungeon darkness of the inner
prison, with a morrow before them
filled with extreme uncertainty, their
hearts went up to God in gra.titude.
3. The deliverance (v. 26). The
Lord wrought deliverance by sending
a great earthquake which opened the
prison doors and removed the chains
from all hands.
II. The Conversion of the Jailer (vv.
(27-34).;        ���     ���""
The jailer's sympathy did not go
out very-far for the prisoners, for after they were made secure he went to
sleep. The earthquake suddently
aroused him. He was about to kill
himself, whereupon Paul assured him
that the prisoners were all safe. . This
was too much for-,him. ��� What he had
heard of their preaching and now
what he had experienced caused him
to come as a humble Inquirer-after
salvation. Paul clearly "pointed out
the way tb be saved���"Believe on the
Lord Jesus Christ." The word "believe" means to yield to arid fully
obey. The proof that the jailer was
saved is threefold: r ..
.. 1. Transformation from brutality to
2. Confession of Christ in baptism.
3. His whole household baptised.
III. The Magistrates Humbled  (vv.
35-40). ������    .   "
The earthquake brought* fear upon
the magistrates. They gave leave for
the prisoners to go, but now they refuse to go, claiming that their right?
as Roman citizens have been violated,
and demand a.public vindication. Paul
was willing to suffer forChrist's sake,
but he used the occasion - to show
them that- persecuting men 'who
preach*the gospel is. an offense against
the law. of God and man. - . .'

Where Winbreaks
Are Necessary
Gardens on Prairies Must Be Protected by Hedges
That the time will come when the
prairies will be hedged arid dotted
with gardens and. blooming flowers,
of. ripening fruits arid of delicious
vegetables, was the prediction-made
recently by W. . Macoun, horticulturist of the Dominion Experimental
Farms, who has almost completed a
tour of inspection of the Dominion's
experimentar farms. Mr. Macoun is
a son of Professor John Macoun, of
Ottawa,' the famous naturalist and explorer, who died last year in his
ninetieth year. x
Mr. -Macoun said that he had seen
on the prairies some of the finest
gardens that could possibly be seen
anywhere in Canada. But before the
prairies can have gardens they must
have hedges for windbreaks, Mr. Macoun added. "Set your hedges, and
you may look for your garden," he
said. "The hedges are coming. The
Dominion experimental farms have
more, far more, than paid for them-
selves*by the wide distribution which
has been given to the caragana
hedge, which the Department at Ottawa introduced from Russia. It is
indispensable to thc small; garden
on the j>rairies. I attribute a great
,deal of the splendid results achieved
in western gardening to the influence exerted by the experimental
stations," Mr..Macoun declared.
Mr. Macoun said the present airri*
of the Department of Agriculture is
to get earlier varieties of fruits and
vegetables, and referred more particularly'to the special need for earlier varieties of- all kinds on the
windswept prairies. .
Postage Meter Machine
Does Away With Necessity of Sticking on? Stamps
N^y York has been introduced to
the postage meter machine���:a machine which makes every man his
own_stamp printer and docs away
with the necessity of sticking them
on.   7 / ��������' '." ���'
The National City Bank has the
first one exhibited there. -'.'
"The machine, recently approved by
trie post office department, operates
on a principle similar, to that of the
government's automatic cancelling
machines. As the letters are run
through it, a square about the size of
a stamp is printed, in which appear
the words: "U. S. Postage���Paid 2
. The machine is equipped with a
register which can be set only by
post office authorities. When the
register shows thc user has stamped
as many letters as he paid, for, the
machine stops and has to be taken to
the post office to be reset.
The Family Physician.���The good
doctor is always worth his fee. But
it is not always possible to get a doctor just when you want him. In
such -cases, common sense- suggests,
the use of reliable home remedies,
such as Dr.' Thomas' Eclcctric Oil,
which is' wonderfully effective in easing inflammatory .pains, and in healing
cuts,- scratches, bruises and sprains.
The presence" of this remedy in the
family medicine- chest saves many a
fee.' '   " .

Both Come From, the Same Cause-
Thin, Watery Blood
Most people think of neuralgia as
a pain ini the head or face, but neuralgia- may affect any nerve in the
body. Different names are-given to
it. when it affects certain nerves.
Thus neuralgia of the sciatic nerve
is called sciatica, but the character
of the pain and the nature of the dis-
case_ are the. same. The pain in neuralgia is caused by starved nerves.
Thc blood which carries nourishment to" the nerves has become- thin
and impure and no longer does ' so,
and the pain you feel is. the cry of
the nerves for their natural food.
Ypu may ease thc pains of neuralgia
with hot applications, but real relief
from the trouble comes by enriching"
and purifying the blood. For this
purpose Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are
strongly recommended. These pills
make new, rich blood and thus act as
a most effective nerve tonic. If you
are suffering from this most dreaded
of troubles, or any form of nerve
trouble,- give these pills a fair trial,
and note the ease .and comfort that
follows their use. /
You can get Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills from any medicine dealer, or
by mail at 50 cents a box or six boxes
for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams'

Russians Live In Fields
Family of Five Occupy Hut Four by
���'..': Ten Feet.
In a village in Russia recently a
family of five was found living in
a hut measuring four by ten feet
The hut was made out of an old
farm wagon. All five slept on a bed
of straw covered by- a sheet and
some rags. A stove .was the only
househofd article owned by the family, which paid a farmer a weekly
rental equal to about 40 cents in
Canadian .money. An American who
recently returned from Russia declared that while this case indicated
the severity of the housing situation,
over there, it was by no means the
worst he had seen: Many families
arc entirely without shelter.

watches of the night, making the
term "silent" the reverse of appropriate. This particular bird
resembles in outward appearanc-e a
young man���somewhere between
the ages of seventeen and twenty-
seven; it wears men's apparel,
usually somewhat extreme as to
cut and color: it vocalizes with
human speech. In all respects but
one it is exactly like a young man;
but tbe striking difference is that,
from all its actions, it appears to
be devoid'of human "brain power.
It is gregarious in its habits,
usually travelling in-"bunches" of
half a dozen or so, and its favorite
, occupation seems .to be to . congregate close to where people are
trying to sleep and  to make the
r. ��� ���     ��� '��� ���   ���
. night hideous "with-doleful "wails���.
one theory is- that iii fancies .'it is
Kiuging^or loud talk or .shouting.
One .gentleman, ~" 'describing the
noise likened it 'to. "a".cross between "a wildcat' and- hyena."
'With this difference, however, that,
neither a wildcat or hyena has
ever been known to be guilty of
tho profanity and loud language, in
which the human appearing night-
hawk appear to delight.
To get down to plain.talk���there
are boys or   young men,   as. no
doubt  they   consider   themselves,
who  are nothing  less than plain
nuisances. -.:    They   have  -neither
brains_or manners to consider that
people sometimes want ,to-;-sleep.
There is no use appealing, to their
commonsense want!to. sleep: . It is
,  equally, useless to".,��� appeal  to':7 their
.  consideration for . others-���all  they
;think of-is their own pleasure.'. ;It
is hard to.knqw just how to treat
. them; but we do not-think anyone
: would, greatly blame a householder
" who took direct action and handed
..'.'out. a liberal dose.'.or ; douse���of
��� ��� cold water, "to  the nexfe.:.flock that
7 congregate tinder his window. '���-, . '
V   There is; a  time and  place for
everything,    and .the   time -and
place for cat-fight, quartettes and
shouted profanity are emphatically
. iiot on   the  streets" between -the
"hours' of 10 p. in. and 4 a-, no. '.-

Runniiig a newspaper is just like running a hotel, only
different. When a man goes into a hotel and finds something on the table which does not suit him. He does npt
raise hades with the landlord and tell him to stop his old
hotel. Well hardly. He sets that dish to one side and
wages into the many dishes that suit him. It is (different
with some newspaper readers. They find an article
occasionally that does not suit them exactly and without
stopping to think it may please hundreds of other readers,
make a grand stand play and tell the editor how a paper
should be run aud what should be put into it. Bui such
people are becoming fewer every year,
