A 'Strange Meteor
r  Las. Saturday night at   10.55, i<
hizzing sound  and  the eight of a
flying meteor engaged the attention
of those of our  citizens  who were
up   at   that   time.     The   meteor
passed in a north easterly direction
over    tho   city   and    its   descent
occupied fully  forty-five  seconds.
Those who saw it state that it was
very bright and  that its progress
was marked with a  hissing sound.

from view a thud, or rather  which
sounded like  an, explosion,  from

It is a joy to live in summer
when all tbe flowers are in bloom.
Even lo savage a flower makes
an appeal,, for it is an assurance
_of continued-life,_a vague-promise of immortality. But whatever may be the subconscious
promptings, we loye to revel in
the beauty of the great masses of
flowers which the summer brings;-
and to catch their delicious odor.
Sometimes however mingling
with the scent of flowers there
comes to us unpleasant odors
which the health inspector might
suppress, In little towns like
Greenwood it is difficult to suppress these odors, but it can be
done if the people * are trained
along the lines of health, and
their senses kept on the alert to
the disgrace of eyil odors. It is
well to learn that there are other
uses for lime than that of makiug
mortar;' and the plentiful use of
it should be insistedupon, -
The latest and most interesting

as of great importance in all
agricultural colleges, but pur
babies which are of more importance than all the little pigs.that
.were ever invented, were neglected. At last however, the baby
has; the thought ;of medical
science focused upon. it and baby
life has been made >nore beautiful. What babies eat-has a lot
to do with their personal" happiness and comfort during in-
j fancy; and with the.: health and

Prodigious Poesy
The muse, has often been wooed
to stir nations, to rouse the inert.
spirit of action.    Picturesque limericks have been indited to suggest
volumes,  but it took the Greenwood Bard, H. McCntcheon to use
his poesy  as a   means   to pry   a
few    dollars    from    an  absentee
Greenwood   well wisher.    As the
citizens  know,  efforts   have been
successfully made to collect a sum
of money with which to materially
revive the mining industry of the
city.    It took the  Bard  of Greenwood  and his muse  to go beyond
the precints of the city.    A poena
inspirational   and   appealing   was
addressed to J.  L.   White, depnty
provincial, secretary, it was not so

Don t Puak
Reports from all parts o!.' AYcslern Canada are ,at the time this article is
written, distinctly optimistic so far a;; crop conditions are concerned: TIig
heavy Spring rains, -while ihcy retarded seeding operations in some district;;,
and resulted in certain low-lying lands not being seeded, nevertheless prepared an ideal seed bed. Then, during the latter part of June copious rains
have fallen fairly generally throughout the West giving the growing grain
sturdy development and providing needed moisture for rapid growth.
Sections of the country which during recent years have been afflicted with
the grasshopper plague report a maikod decrease in the pest, while never he-
fore have farmer:} generally heen su well organized and ready to fight this
Reduction.- in freight rates, and the passing of legislation "calculated to
assist in the marketing of the crop without such a disastrous decline in prices
as took i)lace last year, are also encouraging features of the situation, leading to the hope that, providing the crop passes through the dangers still
ahead, a reasonably profitable return on the season's operations will be
realized. *-
It ia never wise, however, to figure on a crop until it Is actually harvested and marketed because ao many eventualities may occur, and so many
factors have to be considered. Chickens should not be counted before they
are hatched, and neither should the probabalities of the Western grain crop
be figured on'until they become actualities.
Evidence is not lacking even at this early date that some.creditors and
corporations, to whom farmers are7 largely in debt, are figuring on and preparing for what they term a "clean up" this year. In other words, they are
planning to conduct aggressive debt-collecting campaigns. In some fe,w
isolated cases steps have already been taken to effect foreclosure of mortgages on tlie strength of growing crops, and without giving the individual
farmer an opportunity to himself realize on his year's labor and thus place
himself iu a position to meet his liabilities to the extent that the crop maj*
place him in funds to do so.
The fact ought to be, and must be, realized that in those sections which
have suffered from repeated crop failures in recent years one crop will not
liquidate the debts which have been contracted. It has taken several years'
losses to put many farmers in the position in which they now unfortunately
find themselves, and it would be both foolish and cruel if drastic measures
of debt collection were taken. Yot when a man has several creditors it is
inevitable that, if one proceeds to take drastic action, the others who are
willing to be reasonable must adopt somewhat similar measures in order to
protect themselves and not allow the unreasonable creditor to get away with
everything to their own and their client's loss.
In a few isolated cases it has already been necessary i'or Governments to
warn unreasonable creditors that, if they persist in demanding their pound
of fiesh without giving the debtor-farmer a fair chance, an individual moratorium will be issued lo protect such a man and his other creditors. Should
this Shylock, characteristic become at all general, Governments might be
forced, much as they would regret thc necessity, to declare a moratorium in
order to prevent .the precipitation of a situation, which would prove.disastrous all .round. ' - '    .'��� *���-.     " ���"'-���"
On the other hand it must be fully recognized, that there is an "unwieldy
.burden of debt now7 resting oh .the country which must be" paid off to the last
dollar it is possible to squeeze out of this year's production and-yet leave sufficient to enable families to enjoy the necessities of life and continue to-"carry
on" "next. year. Tlie whole credit, system of the country, and the stability of
the entire financial-and business fabric demands that.this be done. There
can b.e no sympathy for, and. little-mercy shown to, the man who does not deal
.frankly and ���honestly with--his-creditors, and make every possible effort ;io
pay.off his liabilities.    - - ';._ .       -.-'-"      -
���'There is, therefore, imperative necessity foi* mutual understanding, good-,
will- and active co-operation nelween debtors and creditors this year; " There
must be no'tendehcy on tho part, of the debtor to evade or procrastinate, but
an'open, honest effort to'meet his creditors more than half-way and fairly to
-the full'extent of Iiis abilityV". Creditors, onHhe other hand; must appreciate
the fact that, one good crop .will not pay' for three, four and "sometimes five
' years of no-crops.     They must,.'therefore, be reasonable, and .thosS who re-
- fuse "to" bo'-reasonable, must, be taken in'hand and compelled to be-do.",. -.
'   V-The   national - interest"   demands   not merely an appreciation of these j
��� tilings, buta practical recognition of tliem.   National interests are paramount, j
and above-any individual or corporation interest, and if-the' latter do not ofi
their volition-conduct themselves as' the national interest'demands,'well; then
. they must b.e made to'do so.    - ;' - ' ' .... 7   ���
About Advertising
To      Be      Effective      It      Must      Be
The Montreal Star makes an interesting and pointed business remark
when it declares that "January's advertising helps June and June's will
help December."
There is a world of truth, reason
and significance in this pithy utterance and a little reflection will prove
why this is so. Effective advertising
must not be spasmodic but must be
persistent. To hope for instant and
sustained results from one or two advertisements is to expect the impossible���is as though one hoped by attending school a day or two every
six mon'ths to become an- educated
man. The one is as absurd as tlie

Pains in Back, Limbs and Side
Yield to "Nerviline."
If you have failed -to secure relief
from other remedies, rub on lots of
good old "Nerviline," the strongest,
most penetrating pain relief on the
market. Nerviline acts quickly on
small pains and is the surest to drive
out the big ones. It's because every
drop of Nerviline rubs in, because it
has the ability to sink in deeply, that
it drives away pain that ordinary oily
Liniments won't touch. Large 35c

An Extra Charge for Late Mail Was
Made in England-
A hundred years ago, in England,
anyone who mailed a letter too late in
the day was subject to a fine. Unless letters were mailed in London
before 4 o'clock a fee of a penny for
eacli one had to be paid to the bellman who collected the late'mail. The
postman was an important personage
in those days. He was all done up
in red,white and blue, scarlet coat,
blue breeches, white stockings, with a
great cockade in his hat. Those who
chose to carry letters to the general
post office could do so, but if they
wished to have letters received after
a certain time no less than sixpence
must be paid. It was usual for postage to be collected i'rom the person
who received.a letter.

Interesting Incidents Showing Reasoning Powers of Dogs
In England a short time ago, says
an exchange, a medal was awarded a
Great Dane for saving his master's
life. A roaring, deafening wind was
blowing, and tlie man was walking
along a_dark Cheshire road with his
head down.
The dog was some distance behind,
but 'presently up he came at racing
speed, took a jump at his master/and
sent him sprawling into the hedge.
The dog himself could not escape the
bonnet of the car ^vhich, but for his
intervention, "would have killed his
master, and was badly injured.
Quite recently an Irish terrier, of its
own accord, paid repeated visits to a
Croydon hospital for treatment, while
in the boardroom of King's College
Hospital, London, is a picture of two
fox terriers escorting a wounded collie to that institution. The incident
depicted is a true one. The owner
of-the dogs was a bookseller named
Hutt, and his explanation of the dogs'
sagacity was that they lived so near
the hospital that they must have noticed people who had. met .with accidents being taken there. They used
their knowledge when t]ieir friend,
the collie, was run over by a cab.
Owners of bull terriers have countless stories to tell of their favorite
breed. One of the best is of the animal which went to a dog show "on his.
own." He was a wonderful dog and
had taken prizes everywhere, but
eventually he grew old and his son
reigned in his stead.
Evidently, however, he thought this
was an oversight on the part of his
master which it was his duty to rectify.
Consequently he jumped through a
kitchen window, over several walls,
made his way through miles of London's thickest traffic, and finally finished up at the Horticultural Hall,
where he took his place on the stand.
��    The Mysterious Vitamines
Are Real Things, But No One Has Yet
Set Eyes on Them
��� Vitamines are essential to life and
present in minute quantities in food.
No one has ever set eyes on a vita-
mine, but vitamines are real things,
and quite indispensable to our dietary,
food scientists tell us. But just what
vitamines supply, no one seems to
know for a certainty. Some scientists are of the opinion that they supply the body with certain necessary
chemical units which the body is unable to manufacture. Others regard
them in the light Lof stimulators, in
that they exert a stimulating influence
upon the various activities of the
body. But all this is said to. he intelligent guesswork, and nothing
more. ..The word vitamine was coined by Casimir Funk, a Pole. The
first part of the word indicates its relation to the life process; the "second
to its i chemical nature.

Now Can Do All Her Housework

etable Compound Helped Her
Scenic    Streams    Will    Soon    Turn
Wheels for Industries
Scotland is waking up to the fact
that its lakes and waterfalls may be
made' to serve other purposes than
providing scenic attractions for tourists. As proof of this the "Grampian
Electricity Bill" has been given a'second reading in the House of Commons.
The company is empowered to collect and use the waters of 15 lochs
and 99 small lakes, rivers and
streams, over- an jirea bf 417 . square
miles.       ..'������' -
The water proposed to be utilized
are^eslimated to be" capable of generating 56,000 horsepoAver to supply
electricity in' the counties of Perth,
Kinross and-J'orfar and districts in
four other counties. The capital -is
placed at ��4,500,000.
That any.of the beautiful lakes and
falls of "Caledonia, stern and jwild,*'.
should be used to set the. wheels of
industry spinning, many in Scotland
regard almost as sacrilegious desecration. AncPthat opinion is shared by
not a few Canadians who are accustomed to visit Scotland annually.
But the promoters declare that the
preservation of the natural beauties
of-Scotland is expressly provided for
by" the terms of the bill. And they
add that when'the hum of the electrically-driven' wheels of industry are
heard in the land, and dividends begin to come in,' the. cry' of "desecration", .will be silenced..

to think that England might be happier and more prosperous if its Government spent less time and energy

I. Belshazzar's Jmpious Feast-(Vv. 1-
'   4>*        v V"V7-
' 1. Who attended .'(vv. 1, 2). Bel
shaazar, his wife and. concubines and
a thousand of his lords.
2. Behavior thereat (vv. 3, 4). (1)
They drank wine; they engaged in
revelry. (2) They committed sacn
lejge. In their drunken revelry they
drank wine out "of the sacred Vesselb
���which had been taken but of the temple, of the-house of God, which was at
Jerusalem. When men are under the
influence of intoxicating liquors they
lose all regard for sacred'things. (��)
They worshipped idols. They pra*.
cd to gods of gold and of silver, of
brass, of iron, wood and stone.
II. The Handwriting on the Wall (\ \
5-1G). ..-       '
1. The time of (v. 5). II occurred
in the same hour in which Ihey weie
engaged in their drunken revelry.
.   2. The effect upon the king. (v. 0)
He was greatly   disturbed;    he    was
seized with consternation. "The joint.s
of his loins were loosed, and his knees
smote one against another."
3. The king's behavior (vv.-7-1G).
(1) He called forth astrologers, and
soothsayers, offering rewards of gold
and position (v. 7-9)7". Their utter inability to interpret thc writing left
the king even worse perplexed. (2)
Daniel brought at the suggestion' of
the queen (vv. 10-16). The queon
here was perhaps :the wife of Nebuchadnezzar who remembered Daniel's
service-in interpreting his dream. For
that reason he was7sent for and promised great reward. yyX
III. Daniel Interprets the Writing (vv.
V 17r2S). V-
17 Daniel's address to the king (vv.
17-24). He brushes.aside his promised gifts (v. 17). He would not
have his speech limited by the king's
2. The interpretation of the writing
(vv. 25-2S). (1) "Mene" means numbered" (v. 28)..:;.'.God hath numbered
thy kingdom and finished it." (2)
"Tel-iel". means "weighed" (v. 27).
"Thou art weighed in the balances,
and art found wanting." (3) "Peres"
means "divided" (v. 2S). "Thy kingdom is divided, and given to . Hie
Medes and Persians."
IV. The Judgment Executed  (v.*. 29-
In that night was Belshazzar slain
and Darius the Medeau look the kingdom.
The Chaldean dynasty ended with
Belshazzar. .So we may interpret
this whole scene as pointing to the
conditions at the close of the limes of
the Gentiles and as adumbrating the
prevailing conditions?      Let us nolo:
1. The stupidity of men. They, liko_
people today, would not learn by example. Nebuchadnezzar's fate should
have deterred Belshazzar from such
2. The magnificent splendor. This
great feasl was characterized by
pomp, display, parade. How characteristic of this agei
3. Luxury. The -famous hanging
gardens ,of Babylon swere' a noteworthy example. Signs of luxury today are on every hand. .
4. Licentiousness. The king'with
his wives and concubines. This is
notoriously prevalent today.
5. Blasphemous sacrilege." And
may not the sacrilege of today be in
excess of theirs, expressing itself in
(1) a profession of religion for pecuniary^ gain, _ s_o_cial_and political _prefer_-_
ment; (2) use of the pulpit and of the
ministry for display and notoriety,
even for, thc propagation of false doctrine; (3) uniting with the church, attending the communion, so as to cover
up secret sins; (���)���') the use of thc
Word of God to give point lo a joke;
(5) denying lhat the Bible is God's
Word, making it a book of errors,
myths and legends; (6) sneering at
thc Yir%in birth, repudiating..Christ's
deity and setting aside His vicarious

The Force of Advertising
Mr. Mclntyre, of the Dixon
Motors, has a good story proving
tho value of newspaper advertis-ing,
?ays the Vancouver World.
"The late Col. Lowery. of Greenwood, B.C.," r.-late.s Mr. Mc-
In';yre, "was editor of a newspaper there which was receiving
little support from _ the merchants
of the "town.
''It came along towards Cbris-
fcmas. No Chrisjmas advertisements were inserted by the mer-
clnnts. Then the colonel put in
big type on his front page this
a mouncement:
"Three weeks more and
C'iristmas will be here. Greenwood merchants have no Christmas
stocks in their stores. Citizens
will have to use the mail order
citalogues or go to Vancouver or
Sp}kauo to do their Christmas
���'When   the   paper   appeared,"
Mclntyre says, the merchants were
furious, held a meeting and went
in a body to the office of The
Ledge. There they met the
colonel, who expressed great surprise.
"They charged the colonel with
wilfully knocking the city and en-
deaver to drive trade away.
" 'You're wrong,' was Colonel
Lowery's reply. 'If you had
Christmas goods to ofiVr,-- you
didn't advertise them. I didn't
know you had anything to offer
tho people by way of special bargains. And if. I didn't know,
what "chance have the other
citizens of Greenwood'?"
"The merchants took a tumble
and pub on a strong campaign of
advertising and the result was that
they did a tremendous trade that
Christmas,"   Mr. Mclntyre added.
