The death occurred in the Grand

Robert Evans, of Midway, formerly   of   Texas,   in   his 36th  year.

B. C. a number of years  ago  from
Texas  and  made his  home here.
Ho leaves to mourn his loss a wife
and four  children, Verna, Luceal,

credit on the teacher^ Mrs. Harris.
At the close of the entertainment,

After all had been examined amid
much laughter and guessing the
identity of the7 senders, dancing
and games were indulged in until
about 11 o'clock, when refreshments 'were served. At midnight
the party broke up after a most
enjoyable time.

Seldom i;:!. tin- action ol' a (.iovminieni received such almost unanimous
approval as w;is accorded by press and public, political friend'and political foe,
to (.ho selection ol' Sir Henry Thornton a.. President of tho Canadian National
Kailv.'.iss Trior lo the aimoiincoinont of iiis appointment, tliere was a feel-
in., of apprehension in niiiny tiuarlors that a purely political appointment
niiKlit be made, or that someone unfriendly tod lie principle of public ownership migiii be chosen, or that a man id" rather ordinary ability as a railway
execiiivo and administrator would be selected. Iu fact, predictions were
not lackin..'that no really bij. railway man with a. reputation to lose could bc
found who would undertake the very formidable task of endeavoring to solve
Canada's national lailway problem.
Tin.;;..; apprehensions wero definitely removed when it was made public
tha!-Sir Henry Thornton had been offered and had accepted the position ho
now occupies, coupled with lhe announcement that .Sir Heury and his colleagues on tlio board ofcdjreetors of the CK.lt. would be quite ���untrammelled,
poHik'aiJy, ia their administration of this .Treat national system.
Sir. T!e:iry Thornton first made n reputation for himself as a railway man
on ihe iVni'sylvunia .system, one of the best managed railways in the United
States. Ife was called to JCngland to undertake the task of re-organizing and
making c.'iicienL one of'the principal'railways in the. British Isles, a work he
carried through with marked success. During the Great War, S.r Henry
once aim in proved his ability as an energetic and successful railwav administrator. "a
ln assuming the duties and responsibilities of chief executive of the Canadian National Kail ways, Sir Henry lias undertaken what is admittedly one of
the hardest propositions iii the railway world today. Fortunately for himself

WINTER WEATHER
HARD ON LITTLE ONES
Our Canadian winters are. exceedingly hard on the health of little ones.
The weather is often so severe that
the mother cannot take the little one

is tliat baby is coniincd to overheated,
badly venlilated rooms; lakes cold nnd

the little one healthy. They are a
mild laxative which regulate the stomach and bowels and thus prevent
colds, The Tablets are sold by medicine dealers or by mail at 2ii cents a

Inspection of Eggs from U.S.
To Check Grading Evasion By American Egg Shippers
The Canadian Government has talc-
en steps to prevent egg shippers in
the United Slates evading thc regulations governing tlio shipment of eggs
In Canada. An order-In-councll
directs that, in future, all egg shipments entering Canada from the United States will be inspected and grad-.J
cd. Under the former regulation, inspection was confined to shipments of
more, but it was found shippers in the
United States were evading inspection by making shipments of less than
10 cases.
Children Cry for Fletcher's
Fletcher's Castoria is strictly a remedy for Infants and Children.
Foods are specially prepared for babies. A baby's medicin.8
is even more essential for Baby. Remedies primarily prepared
for grown-ups are not interchangeable��� It was the need of
a remedy for the common ailments of Infants and Children
that brought Castoria before the public after years of research,
and no claim has been made for it that its use for over 30
years has not proven.
What is CASTORIA?
Castoria is a harmless substitute for Castor Oil, Paregoric,
Drops and Soothing Syrups. It is pleasant. It contains
neither Opium, Morphine nor other narcotic substance. Its
age is its guarantee. For more than thirty years it has
been in constant use for the relief of Constipation, Flatulency,
Wind Colic and Diarrhoea; allaying Feverishncss arising
therefrom, and by regulating the Stomach and Bowels, aids
the assimilation of Food; giving healthy and natural sleep.

An Impressive Ceremony
Hindoo Boy's First Haircut Is Vory
Solemn Operation
The Hindoo boy who is having his
hair cut for the first time finds himself the centre of a very solemn and
impressive ceremony. A missionary
who was passing near a temple when
a queer little procession was going
around it, reports lhat he stopped to
inquire the cause of the excitement.
Ho found that the reason for it was
very small���just a little Hindoo boy
in white and a red girdle, and all {his
fuss was about a haircut he was going
to get. The operation must have coat
the youngster's father a pretty penny,
for there was a goat to bc sacrificed,
a feast for all the relations and friends
to be financed, and all because the
only son of the family was going to
have his carefully braided, locks cut
off, and offered- lo -tho idol whoso-

A Wireless Warning
Land Station Warns Pilot of Aeroplane
and Prevents Accident
The reliability and safety of the
Uritish air services to the continent
are due in no small measure to the
provision of wireless apparatus which
enables constant communication to be
maintained with land stations. On
a recent occasion an aeroplane leaving
London lost one of the wheels from
its uuder-carriagc shortly after rising
from the ground. The accident was
not, of course, noticed by the pilot.
but he received information of it from
the land station, and. this warning enabled-him to make-a safe landing on
the one remaining wheel by tilting his
machine.

GENERAL DEBILITY

No reasonable precaution to avert

victim one of almost constant misery.
Ask almost any of those who havo

MILBURN'S
HEART AND NERVE PILLS
The purpose of this parable was. to'
correct the misapprehension of the
disciples as to the immediate establishment of the kingdom. They were
on the way to Jerusalem and they
thought that immediately upon their
arrival there Jesus would begin the
exercise of His kingdom rule.. It Is to
be noted that Jesus did not correct
them for believing in the reality of the
kingdom, but for believing that it
would immediately appear.
I. The Absent Lord (v. 12). ;
Ho pictures His going bade lo Cod!
as a nobleman going to receive a kingdom. This was a common occurrence
among them. They kiFew how some
of the Herodian family had thus done
���gone to Rome and secured their appointment to rule " over Palestine.
Jesus ascended on high to receive
from God, tho Father, a~kingdom. Let
no one mistake thc certainty of His
return, though the timc be unknown,
and the event delayed.
II. The Distribution of lhe Founds (v.
12).
These pounds represent Christ's
gifts to His servants. When Christ
ascended He gave gifts to men (Eph:
1:7, 8, 11, 12). To each servant was
given the same amount, showing that
lo all a certain gift has been given*
and therefore all will be held responsible for its use. The distribution was
made by the "sovereign. It was alp_j a
purposeful distribution. They were
to put their gifts to use during His absence. 'What the nobleman demanded
was faithfulness. The pounds were to
be used for the Master, not for tlie
selfish enjoyment of the servant.
III. The Rebellious Citizens (v. l-l).
They hated Him and sent.messengers after Him, notifying Him of their
refusal to be subject to Him. This
pictures the unbelief of the Jews after
Christ's ascension and their repudiation of I-Iis rule. It also pictures the
unbelieving world in its hatred and rejection of Christ. -
IV. The Accounting (vv. 15-27).
1. Its Certainty. Christ will surely,
bring everyone to account for the use
made of His gifts. He had appointed
a. day in which He shall judge the
world (Acts 17:31).
2. Time Of (v. 15). It will take
place when Jesus comes back to earth.
! At that time He will summon His
servants and reckon witli them. This
will take:place when He has received
l-l is kingdom.- Ho will receive His
kingdom when he asks the Father (Ps.
2:8).
3. Rewards Given for Faithfulness
(vv. 16-19). (1) The first report (vv.
16, 17). The pound had gained ten
pounds. He did not say, "I have made
ten    pounds,"    but "Thy pound hath

Just As She Was About To Go

"For four years before I took Tanlac I never knew what it was to have
a well day," . recently declared Mrs.
Mary Stewart, North. Albert Street,
Regina, Sask.
"It all resulted from a spell of the
'Flu,' which left mc almost a nervous
and physical wreck. A good night'a
rest I rarely ever had and many 11
night I could not close my eyes in
sleep at all. I felt so lired and worn
out all tho time I simply dragged myself through the day. To tell the
truth I was so weak and nervous I
couldn't pour a cup of tea or dip up a
spoonful of sugar without spilling it.
"I lost thirty pounds in weight and
felt so miserable I had about made up
my mind to give up and go to the hospital. I also had rheumatism all over
my body and my legs pained mo so
bad at times I could hardly walk.
Since taking Tanlac my troubles are
gone and I have regained twelvo
pounds of my tost weight. . I cat and
sleep like a child and feel fine. I
just think Tanlac the grandest medicine on earth."
Tanlac is for sale by all good druggists.     Over i!5-million 'hollies sold.

His excuse increased his guilt., He
is called wicked. (3) Stripped of the

..he showed that .while Ontario and.
other provinces . were   obliged   to.

borrowing on treasury   bills,  British. Columbia could float the same
loans for five  per cent.    The minister  claimed    that   the   political

that' the province . was  never ""in

Appeal for Disabled Returned Soldiers
A special appear to the. employ^
ers oa behalf of disabled  returned
soldiers is being made.by Attorney ��
General  A.   M. 7Manson. minister
.. oftabor. ..A letter 7 has been dispatched  to. practically every "employer of labor in.;B.G., .sskicg.for.
co-operating in; providing work for
returned men, and especially those
incapacitated through their war
experiences. The minister points
out that tliere are between S00
and 1000 disabled veterans iu trie
province.
"They remind us," ho writes,
"of a duty which we cannot
ignore. Many of them before the
war were assured of safe positions
in'tho professions, iu commerce, or
tn'industry, and. of every comfort
for the rest of their days. They
I put these things behind them.
��� They made the sacrifice���a sacrifice
known to all. They have come
back maimed in body and broken
in health, desiring nothing so
much as to be able to make a now
start in life. Many of these men
find it impossible to 'look for a return of the same measure- of prosperity which they formerly enjoyed. But they do ask to be allowed
to serve the community in some
useful capacity, in such a way as
their strength and opportunity
will permit."
Hon. Mr. Manson appeals to the
employers to arrange tbeir organizations so that at least a few
veterans may be given employment and to give the preference to.
returned men when engaging more
assistance. Incidentally, ho points
out that more than" eighty per
cent, of the men who have been
added to' the civil service during
the past four years, by appointment and re-iustatement, have
been returned soldiers.

The Natural Wealth of Canada
Transportation
IN the matter of transportation the various industries of Canada are well served on land and sea.
Nature has endowed this country with an abundance
of navigable waterways, and these have been supplemented by extensive railway systems linking up every
province. Both east and west there are excellent
harbours and the leading steamship organizations of
the world provide ocean services connecting Canada
with every foreign market.
