Death of Miss Ada Thomet
The entire district was  shocked
to learn of the death of Miss Ada
May Thomet,  of Midway,  at the
early age of 18 years and 6 months,
at the Grand   Forks  hospital on,
Friday, Sept. 30th at 6.45 p.m.,
the cause of death being tubercular
meningites.    She had been a nurse
at the same hospital for 18 mouths
but a short time ago returned to
her home in Midway   for   a   rest.
Deceased was was only sick two
and a half weeks.0 She is survived
by her mother, Mrs. Bertha Thomet
three sisters,  Emma,  Helen and
Annie and one  brother, ��� Carl,  all
residing at Midway.
She was a true friend, and her
devotion to those she loved would
make a bright chapter in any life.
Nothing but the thought of the loving hand that has removed her can
reconcile those near and dear to her
of her absence. While she has
gone from the scenes, the conflicts,
the sorrows and pleasures of life,
she will still live in the hearts of
those who knew "her best. Her
lovely nature led her to hide her
best qualities from public gaze, but
they were revealed to those who
enjoyed her acquaintance, yet it
was in her.home that her true
worth was most conspicuous. She -
was a kind and loving daughter,
and her devotion to the family
circle had no limit. Her future
was full of promise, and we * dare
not ask why she was taken away
in her prime, unless, as flowers are
picked before the froBt finds them
that we may not witness their decay. Tt is~sad,~indeed, to' see one -
so well equipped for life taken, eo
unexpectedly, yet for her there was
���o standing on the border-land
gazing into the unknown, for
death came as the sunset dies along
the hills when tho day is over.
The funearl was held at the
Presbyterian Church, Midway, and
waB largely attended. Rev. Hlllia
Wright conducted the services assisted by Rev. E. G. Smyth. The
floral offerings were many and
beautiful. Interment. took place
at the Midway cemetery.
The pall-bearers  were:   Ewart
MeMynn, GordonVMcMynn,-Eric- -
and Robert Jackson, Joe Hielscher
and Norwood Docksteader.
"Nomads of the North"
Imagine a pet dog and a
bear chained together stranded in
the very swift currents of a river
of the Far North and finally being
dashed over a precipitous rapids
and through sheer animal intelligence and presence of mind, rescuing each other in the end! According to an authorized statement a dog and a bear were actually put to this severe test, being
abandoned entirely upon their
own resources for the sake of realism in James Oliver Curwood's
"Nomads of the North," which
will be Bhowa at the Greenwood
Theatre on Saturday, Oct, Sth.
For at least two minutes the remarkable struggles of these animals
occupy the whole screen and it is
said the manner in which they
finally reach -safety In such as to
elicit actual cheers.

Anxious For British
To Have Honor
Does It Pay Trie Farmer
To Hold His Wkeat
Tin- question which ci)nsi iiut->s the heading ol' this article has been asked
find debated thousands t>C times and it. still remain.-; a moot question iu the
mind.- of many people.      Commissions have invest igated tlie grain marketing  problem  in  iivaetk-ally all  tho  great,  wheat growing countries ot  the,
world, and in, this connection due consideration hay been given to the effect on prices of the early tnarkoiiug of tlio bulk of the wheat crop imiue.dt-,
ately following' harvest.     Tho prevailing opinion in tho minds eC'iwii't peo- (
pie has  undoubtedly been  thai, those farmers who, from  force of o.it-ouui-j
stances, were compelled to rush llioir wheat. to,.  in;u-l-:et.    wm-o   the   losers |
thereby, while the man who could aft'ord to hold it aud watch tho market]
stood to gain.

them what to do and what, not to do. Arm chair fanners. Ilk"- ami chair
military strategists, aro not popular, nor do they carry union weight, a.ud
possibly rightly so when they attempt, to deal with practical farming problems?. Put in lite matter of the iniirk--lit)g of wheat, men who never plowed
n furrow or tweed tut acre in their lives, hut who have, studied the question
of marketing, the Hue (nations of prices, and the harvest seasons around the
world, tire well qualified to speak iu reply to the question at tlio head of
this article. They aro certainly iu just as good a position to express an
opinion in regard to it as any practical fanner, and possibly iu a, much bot.LC''
position to do so intelligently-, j
Of course, no hard and fast rule cau he laid down because conditions vary i
from one year to another and circumstances arise beyond tho control of more j
mortals which upset any and all calculations and defy previous experience, j
For example, tho man who sold wheat immediately following the outbreak!
of war in 191-1 was tho loser by so doing.   It is, therefore. Only possible
to arrivo afan intelligent answer to ihe question whether it pays the farmer to hold his wheat after harvest by taking the average run oC prices over
a period of normal years.
The Federal Reserve Bank of. Minneapolis lias recently issued a set of
most interesting- charts, one of which seeks to throw some light on the question. One pair of charts shows the variations in prices on tho Chicago and
Minneapolis markets covering the -la-year period from 1S7G to IPSO; another
shows the monthly range of cash wheat prices iii Minneapolis during the last
ten "years, while a fourth chart, dealing with the normal pre-war years of
1903 to 1013, shows whether a farmer stood to gain or lose by hohling4or selling his w;lieat as indicated by the Chicago prie.es which provaile.il from mouth
to month throughout this ton-year period.
Taking the August price in each year as a basis, the chart in question
shows the fluctuations in price above, ov below the August price in the succeeding months until August again came round. The chart reveals the
amazing fact that in 011I3- 25 months out of the ll!0 in this ten-year period
would if havo paid the farmer to hold his wheat as compared with selling
at the August price. In other -words, in 95 mouths out of .the .1.20 there was
a loss by selling wheat at other than the August price. On the average
every month showed a loss, and these losses vary from about five, cents to
fourteen cents a bushel. It is further pointed out. that if September prices,
instead of August, had been selected as the basis for .-making the.comparl-

Smith-Brothers Certain Flight Around
World Will Be Success.
"Wc are leaving nothing to chance,"
was Sir Keith Smith's parting shot to
au interview after outlining the precautions lie unci his brother, Sir Ross
Smith, are taking io ensure tlie success of their ilight around the world
next spring.
"We are pretty .certain that tho
flight will be made some day, and we
are keen to have the honor go to a.
.ttritisber," said Sir Keith.
The route has not yet been decided,
hut Sir��� Keith" favors crossing the
Atlantic first to get tho stiffest part
of the trip over early. "Altogether
it will not be a picnic,'' lie said. "We
are sure to come against some pretty
bad weather, especially when encountering the steady winds alon
Pacific, coast of Asia, but it won't
be worse than the Australian Ilight."
It is expected the crew will comprise, the -Smith Brothers and Bennett, whom Sir Keith Smith" describes
at! one of the most experienced mechanics iu the world; what the Australian.-! call a bush-blacksmith, because he c.iin do repairs with tools.
The Smith are of Scottish descent.
They are undergoing a systematic,
course of training to fit themselves
for the.-hardships of the voyage.

The Human Factor
Cut and Dried Schemes Are Not
As lung"as human nature remains
we must expect disputes between
employers .and employees to continue.'!
Machinery for settling them with the
least disturbance of work and trade is
slowly being evolved by the process
of-oxperiinont and elimination. It is
the only possible method because
neither employer nor workman would
submit to a cut and dried scheme
architected for his benefit by somebody else. .The. machinery that proves*!

If the Blood is Kept Rich and Red You
Will Enjoy Health.
More disturbances to health is caused by weak, watery blood than most
people have tiny idea of. When your
blood is impoverished,' the nerves
'suffer from lack of-nourishmont and
you- may bo'troubled with insomnia,
neuritis,' neuralgia or sciatica. Muscles subject to strain aro under-nourished 'and:you' may have muscular
rheumatism or lumbago. If your
blood is thin and you begin to show
symptoms of any of these, disorders
try building up the blood with Dr.
"Williams' Pink Pills. These pills have
a special action on the blood and as
it becomes enriched your health improves. The value of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills in eases of this kind is
proved by tho experience of Mr. D. J.
McDonald,. North lliver Bridge, N.S.,
who says:VMTor some years I suffered severely "with headaches, pains in
flie hack and a run-down condition.
At times the pain in my back w:ould
be so .bad that I would sit up in bed
all night. Prom time to time doctors
wore'treating me, but did'not givo me
more than temporary relief. And then
one day when I was suffering terribly a neighbor came to see me, and
urgetl, me to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills.; After taking two boxes I felt
relief.. I got five boxes rnoro and be-'
fore they were all gone I felt as
though they were giving me -new life,
as in every way they built, up and
improved, my health'and strength. I
am now working as a barker in a
pulp mill, ton hours a day and feeling none the worse after my day's
work.7 'I say with-pleasure that this
condition ia due to .Dr. Williams'
Pink, pills."
You can getsDr. Williams' Pink
Pills from any medicine dealer or by
mail at 5 cents a box, or six boxes
for 52,50 from The Dr. Williams'
Medicine Co., Brockville, Out.

Too often winter approaches only to
find the homo, maker totally unprepared for it. Unfortunately; therefore, there is very often much,unuec-
cessary' distress as well as e'xnonse
during the. cold season.. The thrifty
housewife goes over her homo thor-
���oughly during the fall days and makes
a note, of needed repairs or alterations. So, wliether-yotfown the home
in which ypu.livo or rent-it, you should
take stock of its condition. For in-
stance, is the heating-plant in working order? ������-.-.
Where it is possible, the coal supply should ho acquired as far $n advance/ of-'actual winter as possible.
It is good forethought to make a fire
in "the early fall just to test out the
equipment-;  '      _- "v
Then there- is' tho matter of
weather stripping and double windows in the really cold climate. Experts tell us that the'io is a great saving in fuel where these appliances are
used. Tho handy inan_of tho house
can "easily measure for and apply
weather stripping^. " .It takes, however, a professional to mako really
effective double windows.
It is tho part of wisdom to have
the roof of tho house gone over very
thoroughly for leaks. Gutters and
leaders should likewise bo gone over.
Wheu taking down the hangings
and curtains of summer they should
bo cleaned, aired wrapped and labeled
so as to be available at a moment's
notice when tho warm days return.
Summer clothing should be gone oyer,
aud only what is really available for
further- use should be granted storage
space. There are many ,poor "folks
in tho warmer parts of\ our country
who might bo able to mako immediate use of summer attire you no longer want.     . -
Porch furniture should bo cleaned
and" wrapped cither in' newspaper or
burlap. If it needs repainting, fall
"is"a""goo(l~fime"to~paint���it. A stiff
brush aud some soapy water to which
has been added a Httlo ammonia will
prove- effectivo in', cleaning reed or
willow furniture.
Cure must bo takeu not to store
porch pillows as they are taken from
tho porch. The covers should bo re-.,
moved, carefully laundered, wrapped
and labeled. The pillows themselves
may "be washed-hy swashing about in
hot'.soapsuds-until tho. dirt is ,thoroughly loosened. The pillows should
bo-well rinsed und hung on thc lin6
to'.thoroughly dry. Winter covers
may. be put on these pillow's".-

I. John's Disciples Become Christians
":-(w. 1-7).,
. These twelve disciples had only
been taught the baptism of repentance as a preparation for the kingdom
of God. Paul taught them to believe
in Christ, that is, to receive Him as
the One who had on the cros^ provided redemption for them.
11^, Paul   Preaching in Ephegus (w.
.'  S-10). 7  7
- 1. In the Jewish synagogue (v. 8)./
J2js message is characterized by: (1)
boldness. . Ho realized that God had
kent Him and that His authority was
hack of Him. (2) Reason. He reasoned with them.' God's message is
never sentimental nor arbitrary, but
in accord with the highest reason. (3)
Persuasion. It is not enough ,to come
boldly with a reasonable message; it
must bo accompanied by persuasion.
(4) Concerning the kingdom of God.
Ho did not discourse on current
events, literature, or philosophy, but
upon tho message of salvation,
through Christ.   *
2. In the schoolhouse of Tyraunus
(vv. 0, 10). Paul's earnest preaching only hardened the Jews. When
they came out and spoke openly
against this way of salvation in
Christ, Paul separated the disciples
from them and retired to the school-
house of Tyrannus.
III. God   Working Miracles by Paul
(vv. 11-1G).
- So wonderfully did he manifest His
power that handkerchiefs and aprons
brought front Paul's body healed the
sick and cast out evil spirits from
those, whoso lives had heen made
wretched by them.
IV. A< Glorious Awakening (vy. 17-41).
1. Fear fell upon all (v. 17). News
of. the casting out of these evil spirits
created impression favorable to
Christianity. _'-..'
2. It brought to the front thoso who
professed, faith in Christ ..while not
living right lives (v. IS). They believed, but had not broken from sin.
3. Gave up the practice of black
arts "(v. 19)'. This means forms of
jugglery by use of charms and magical words. All such are -in opposition to the will of God; therefore no
one can have fellowship with God and
practice them. They proved the genuineness of their actions by publicly
burning their books. Though this
was an expensive thing���valued at
about $12,500���they did not try to sell
tho books and get their money back.
When you find you have heen in a
wrong business, mako a clenn sweep
of things; burn up your books on
Spiritualism, Christian Science, etc.;
empty your whisky and beer into tho
sewer,'and have a tobacco party similar' to the Boston tea parly.
4. Uproar of the Silversmiths at
Kphesus (vv. 23-41). (1) The occasion (vv. 23, 2-1). This was the power, of the gospel in destroying tho
infamous husiuess of Demetrius and
his fellows. It was clear to them
that idolatary was tottering before the
power of the gospel. They were not
interested particularly In tlio matter
from a religious standpoint, but he-
cause it was undermining the principal business of tho city. (2) The
method (vv. 25-29). Demetrius, a
leading business man, whose business
was the stay of others of a similar
nature;" called a meeting and stated
that much people had turned from
idolatry and that the market for their
wares was materially weakening. Ho
appealed to his fellows (a) on the
"ground of"business, silyingT^'ThisTotir
craft, .is in danger of being set at
nattglit" (v. 27). (b) Qji the ground
of religious-prejudice. He said '"The
temple of the great goddess Diana
should he despised" (v. 27). He became quite religious when he saw lhat
his business was being interfered
with. His speech gained his end,
the w'holo crowd was enraged and

of Alex. Christien marks the passing away, at the age of 88, one of
the most popular of that fast disappearing band of pioneers who
have done so much in the settlement of the Okanagan. His life

penetrated into the Okauagau long
before tbe advent of railroads and
who, by their struggles and pre-
severance, laid the foundation here
of civilization aud order.
