factor of its development into an article of Very. common use ,is, that direct
conversation may be carried on.   .'.'���."
Because it. enables one's personality" tobe sent is the .'reason that the
telephone proiaptfcs.friemlships'and intimacy, and hrisxgs about closer relations beiTs-een those in business. The" pleasure of hearing the voice yea

Masquerade Dance
Greenwood has witnessed many,
successful dances but the Masquerade in the Masonic Hall on Friday
night, arranged by the G.W.V.A.
was without doubt the best, ever
held in many a long year. One of
the most largely attended balls, it
was delightful to see that fully 95
per cent ofthe dancers, were in.
costume, a statement which cannot always bo made^of fancy dress
affairs. There was really Very
little duplication in the costumes,
considering that there were nearly
three hundred present.
Eye witnesseBS will agree that it
would be difficult to find a district
that possesses so many ladieB capable of turning out such ingenious
and clever dresses. The judges
were Mr. Rylett, of Fife, Mr.
Smith, of Cascade and E. R.
Workman, of Stewart, B, Q. Their
task was a difficult and delicate
oue considering that there were so
many ��� costumes nearly equally as
good as the winners: They awarded prizes to: x-X"
Best dressed lady, Mrs. T. ,W.
Clarke, of Carmi, "butterfly." ...
BeBt lady,, comic, Miss Nora
Jackson, of Midway, "Jonteel Talcum Powder."
Best dressed gent, L. Keir,
Greenwood, "rooster."
Best gent, comic, Thos. Williamson, Anaconda, "tramp."/
Best dressed child, Miss Olive
Mowat, Greenwood, "fairy."
The costumes seen* on Friday
night were a treat ,to the eyes.
Among nearly two hundred costumes it was not easy to pick oot
all the outstanding characters because they were all good.
Bash's melody orchestra of four
pieces won more laurels for the
really excellent music supplied for
the dancing. Mrs. T. W. Clarke.
"and Miss V. Shillcock/very kindly
played the supper extras.
To supply the refreshments for
this large crowd was no easy task,
but Mrs. Axam and Mrs. Blnndell,
the caterers, did remarkably well.
There were four sittings and all
were fed within two hours. It
waB a splendid supper, ably managed and the Boy Scouts did the
waiting.

International Agreements
Have Been Disregarded
Rowell      Says      Allies      Themselves
Responsible   for   Chaos    In
Europe *
Chaos and. misery existing throughout Europe and the world today Is attributed directly to failure of Euro-,
pean countries to carry out those provisions under which Germany capitulated to the allies. The Germans
laid down arms believing tliat ex-
President Wilson's fourteen points
would form the basis of peace. But
these fourteen points have been disregarded as ruthlesslyas Germany herself disregarded the sanptity of international agreement in 1914.
This thought was submitted to delegates of the world mission .conference by Hon. N. W. Rowell. He appealed to "the spirit of brotherhood of
"men as being the only solution of international difficulties.
"We ourselves are responsible' for
the turmoil of the world today," the
speaker said. "Every nation that
signed the Versailles treaty added to
the dishonor of the allies. Germany
was led to believe that peace would
havo as its foundation the idealistic
fourteen points of the United States
president. But tho allies, greedy* for
the spoils of war, took advantage of
Germany's helpless condition ami
abused their power. This constituted
as flagrant a breach of international
honor as the world has ever seen."

those years there was an actual migration from London of 320,000 and that

GOOD RED BLOOD
* A REAL NERVE TONIC
Weak,   Watery   Blood   the   Source   of
All Nervousness ~    >.
"If people would attend to. their
blood, instead of worrying themselves
ill," said an eminent nerve specialist,
"we doctors would not see our consul tins rooms crowded with nervous
wrecks. Moro people suffer from
worry than anything else." "
���The���"sort -'of ~~thlng "the" specialist"
spoke of is tho nervous, run-down
condition caused by overwork and tho
many anxieties of to-day. Sufferers
find themselves tired,-.low-spirited and
unable lo keep their minds on" anything. . Any sudden noise-hurts them
like a blow. They aro full of groundless fears, do not steep well at night.
Headaches and other nerve pains are
part of the misery, and it all comes
i'rom starv\l nerves.     :        -  -   -
Doctoring the nerves with poisonous
sedatives is a terrible mistake. . The
only real nerve tonic is a good supply,
of rich red blood. Therefore-to relieve nervousness and run-down health
Dr. Williams''_flnk Pills should beiak-
on. These . pills enrich tho bloody
which'tones the nerves, improves the
appetite, . gives new strength and
spirits, and makes hitherto despondent
people bright and cheerful. 7 If you
are at all "out of sorts" you should
begin taking Dr. Williams' Pink-Plllo.
You can get these pills through any
dealer in medicine;-or by mail at 50
cents a "box from The Dr. Williams'
Medicine Co., Urockville, Ont.

Experts Puzzled By =
Action of Earthquake
Some Buildings In Japan Stood Strain
0,f Shock
Building experts aro still a good
deal puzzled by tho performance of
various types of architecture under the
strain of the Tokio and Yokohama
earthquake, and opinions differ as to
the ideal structure, to withstand- violent tremors.     '"V
�� .Refugees do, not tire of talking of
the marvel of tho Imperial Hotel at
Tokio. The critics of that .building
had declared it would bo a death trap
in case of an earthquake, but-there. It
stands with hardly a crack, and only
.a. few-o'f-tho .light standard vases
thrown. After the first severe shocks
people slept- confidently during the
quakes that followed for several days
and remained inside during the day.
One guest says ho felt safer in tho
hotel ,than outside. He did not know
how it was done, or what stuff il "was
mado of, but oven the ceiling kept up.
In his room there was not. even a
crack. He reckoned there was only
one man who could come to Japan
and get big contracts for quake proof
building and that \jas thc architect
of the Imperial Hotel.
As to reinforced concrete buildings,
one hears of all sorts of rumors.
Certainly tho proportions of reinforced walls that are standing seems
to be larger than brick. And then,
as if to ridicule theories, some of tho
very lofty brick chimneys rear height
as if there had been no shock.
But tho marvel of the,Imperial
Hotel remains. The severity of the

British Empire Self-Supporting
Dominions Can Supply Practically
Everything that Is Required
There is scarcely anything required
for conversion into.objects of use or
luxury which could not be drawn from
one or the other of theaDominions.
In some tho production of agricultural
or mineral wealth is already very
large; in some it is still comparatively
small or only just beginning. In all,
it is safe to say, it could be almost indefinitely extended in one direction or
another. There could be enough cotton, wool flax, iron ore, and non-ferrous metals to feed all the mills and
looms and blast factories and steel
works of Great Britain, more than
enough food for all its hungry mouths,
within the ring-fence of the liritish
Empire, if thai. Empire's natural resources wero developed to even a
fraction of their full capacity.-���From
tho London Daily Mail.
The Conquest Of Cancer
Purs Air, Pure Water and a Natural.
Diet Are Essentials
Since the publication In these columns of my letter on 2Cth August last,
the President "bf the Imperial Association for the Prevention of Cancer has
kindly presented me ,with a copy of his
latest published book, entitled "The
Conquest of Cancer." In this work,
Dr. Robert Bell, M.D., F.E.P.P.S., etc.,
pre-eminent authority upon the subject, gives the following advice, from
which al! readers may obtain personal
and lasting benefit:���
"There are three things whicli Nature has amply provided for us," and
the proper use of which will enable us
to defy disease in whatever form it
may endeavor to attack us, viz., pure,
air, pure watcr_atid_a natural diet". X
employ the word "natural" advisedly;
becauso flesh meat Is not the natural
food'of man, nor can this term be applied lo^'Ipe fruits and vegetables after undergoing the process by which
they are usually prepared for 'the
iable."   " ' -7:7 7.   -
- "In the ' first place,.--. cooking
not only destroys two-thirds* of. their
nutritive value, but also deprives, them
of the vitols'or living principles f havo
referred to.. 5 And In this "condition
they are niorc-liable to undergo fermentation in the stomach and .intestines, than if they had been partaken
of, and thoroughly mast Icated,: in the
condition which Nature has presented
them to us. It will thus be'perceived that there is a double economy effected by doing away with cooking
.such vegetable products, whicli--may
preferably be consumed -in -the- sun-
cooked condition. Moreover,''they, are
much more palatable in their so-called
"raw"' state. Furthermore,. thoy- are
much more easily digested if Ihey aro
thoroughly inasijeated, and less liable
to undergo fermentation���-which gives
rise to flatulence���than when reduced
to'pulp by cooking." ' .V
.Believing that every man .and woman sliould personally help id relieve"^
humanity from its needless sufferings,
the writer has printed and copyrighted
a dietary which Dr. Bell .has approved.
Fathers and mothers, adopting such
diet, will speedily fiud.thenisel.ves and
their children enjoying such health as
nerer before experienced. -- Consequently, doctors' bills become non-
existant and no medicine is .wanted.
Last, but not least, a considerable
money-sat ing will be. effected, by a
greatly reduced cost of living.' '��� -
," To help' some who may .not, .know
how to cut loose ' irpr* civilization*_>
present disease-producing, premature
death-dealing liabus. the writer...���will
gladly and freely mail one thousand
copies of his dietary to the first thousand readers of'tha Great North-West
who apply for frame to Charles Walter,
51 Brur.svslck ,Avenue, Toronto,; Ontario, Canada. . -,   *
to all retail stores in the city reads
as follows:
"Christmas is, without a doubt,
the most universally observed holiday in the world, and there is no reason why the abbreviation should be so
generally used.
"Wo believe lhat this request will
meet with a ready response from all
members of this association, and we
trust Detroit busrhess men will 'establish a rule, beginning this date, that
tho word 'Christmas^must bo spelled

News From the Capital
* Victoria, Nov. 14.���The guns of
the opposition were effectively
spiked in the Legislature, when
Premier Oliver announced that a
most thorough investigation would
be made into the affaire of tlie
Pacific Great Eastern Railway.
Messrs. Price, Waterhouse and
Company0 have been instructed to
enquire fully into all charges made
by the Provincial Party and members of the Opposition regarding
the construction of the railway by
the Northern Construction Company.
For several yeas a determined
effort has been  made by the Op;
position to  "start eomething"  in
connection with the P. GL B., but
without success.    Premier   Oliver

The season for moose hunting
opened in New Brunswick October
1st, and the chief game warden expects one of the best seasons in the
history of the province. Game is
reported plentiful in all sections.
The drydock at St. John, New
Brunswick, is now an accomplished
work. It was opened October 29th.
The largest drydock in North America, it is .capable of accommodating
the largest ships of the British Navy.
Speaking in London, England, on
October 19th, Sir Lomer Gouin,
Canadian Minister of Justice, stated
that Canada's exports per capita'
were three times more than those'
���of the United States and her imports'
���per capita four times more. The
British Empire was Canada's second
(best customer.
There are more telephones in Canada per 100 population than in any
other country except the United
States. This is shown in a report
issued by the Dominion Bureau of
Statistics, in which the proportion
of telephone users per 100 population
is set at 10.53.
A dispatch from London states
that a number of cattle from the
Prince of Wales' ranch was included
in a large consignment of Canadian
cattle which reached Cardiff recently.
There appeared to be a keen-demand
for the consignment and 150 head
were despatched to Norfolk farmers
by special train.
Members of the Bread and Cake
Bakers' Association o.f Canada, at
the closing session of their Toronto
convention, pledged subscriptions
totalling $K>,000 towards the launching of a permanent institute of "baking, in connection with the Ontario
Agricultural College, Guelph. It is
expected that the school will be
opened early in 1924.
Canadian Pacific Railway figures
show remarkable increases in the
shipment of grain for the ten week
days preceding and' including October 18th, this year, as compared with
1922. During the ten days there
were loaded for shipment over the
whole system a total of 16,195 cars,
at the rate of 2,350,000 bushels, a
day, in comparison with 12,000 cars
at 1,753,000 bushels a day last year.
It.��is expected that by the end of
the present month track-laying on
the branch of the Canadian Pacific
running from Kipawa to the Government dam on the De Quinzft
River, a distance of 69 miles, with
a spur from Gaboury to Ville Marie,
a distance of 8 miles, will be completed and that by the end of Novem-
ber the whole line will be ready for
operation.
A system of education by raaB
for those who live in remote rural
districts out of reach of rural ichooli
is being prepared by Hon. Perron
Baker, Minister of Education for Al*
b.erta, to go into effect this month.
The working plan has already been
drawn up to run through the white!
to.the end of the school year. It is
expected .that from 20 to 40 leaBon*
will-;be-given in the'case of each
V:~^licant for, the service.
There is a heavy demand for
bushmen, according to the Government Labor Bureau at Montreal.
The big lumber companies have been
engaging men for the bush, and the
prospects are that the demand will
be sufficient to make fall and winter conditions good. Wages paid
this year by the lumbei companies
are higher than last year, the rates
paid being $40 and $45 a month,
whereas a year ago the schedule
was down to'��26 a month.

at Winnipeg from the British Isles
this year for the purpose of working on the harvest, 11,8S3 men.
Special efforts are being made to
find occupation for as many as possible to cover the winter period, and
it is stated that it is now probable
that a considerable number of these
harvesters from Great Britain and
the Irish Free State w.Ul remain in

traffic over the company's coastal
lines. He also announced the early
completion of a new pier at this
harbor at a cost of several millions,
whicn has been made necessary by
