The Fire Committee, reported
tbat a false alarm was turned in at
5 a.m. on Jan; 1st. Members of

was available the council decided
that a prosecution could not" be
made. They, however, wish to
say through the medium of The

imposed for wilfully wrong ubo of
the fire alarm system and it is their
intention to make example of any
miscreants if sufficient proof is
forthcoming. u

Pins Wer,e Expensive
Only Wealthy People Could Afford to
Buy Them.
At one time, pins were so "expensive
that only wealthy people could afford
them, and thev were."carcfullv saved,
liy a curious. law the manufacturers
of pins were only allowed to sell them
on January 1 and 2 each year, aud so
when those days came round the
women whose husbands could afford
it, secured pin money from them and
went out and got their pins. The. expression "pin money" has continued
to iivc, although today wiicn used it
means tiny allowance of money whicli
a husband gives a wife for Iicr personal expenses. Pins were known
and used as long ago as 1347 A.D.
They wcre introduced into England
in 15-10., In 1S24 a man named Might
invented a machiu'e for making pins
which enabled them lo bc manufactured cheaply.
Sometimes a Case of Overeat and
Underexercise That Brings on
Do not baiid in your resignation on
Monday. If you. must resign take
some other day in tlie week. That
is the day of all days when ybu want
to quit the job. Resist the temptation, Monday is no sort of a day to
resign, according to a physical director, who says that of all the days in
thc week it is the day of depression.
Blue Monday is no joke���for thoit;
sands of people it actually is blue, according to tbe doctor. "Monday is
blue," said the doctor, "because with
onc class of folks Sunday is a daj'-of
great exaltation aud the ncxtr day-
they arc down in thcvallcy. "With
another class, it is a case of overeat
and underexercise, which brings a depression when Monday comes, and
thcy    have ; to    take up the regular
tasks." '
Worth Imitating
Chinese Pay Debts on New Year's, or
Feel Disgraced.
On Ncw Year's Day evcry Chinese
has a birthday." Tie may have been
born in'April or September, but in
that highly systematic land, where
every hour is needed for making a
living, all thc men, women and children, save up their birthdays 'until
.New Year's.- Then, having attended
lo tlic matter all in a body, thcy can"
go back to' their work without wasting any time on unnecessary .holidays.
And what is still more practical, every
Chinese tries to pay on that day the'
last penny hc owes. If hc cannot
face thc world on New--Ycar's. Day a
man free from all debts he feels deeply mortified and slays within doors,
. Widespread Appeal
Call Sent Out to Help the Starving
People of China.
The widespread ravages of the famine now being experienced in China...
and the terrible suffering that is following in its trial is reflected'in an.
appeal made to Canada through His
Excellency the Governor-General, in
a cable that has just been received as.
follows: ." .   .
"���Shanghai/-- Dec.    22, 1920:  Chinar
helpless,   appalling   famine.    Entreat
Canadian people's help. White, Bishop
Honan; Mackenzie, Moderator, Mac-

Burying The Hatchet.
To bury thc hatchet means to let
bygones "be bygones. The phrase
originated among thc North American Indians, who were commarrded
by thc "Great Spirit," wlien thcy
sm'oked their calumet or peace ��l)ipe,
to bury their hatchets, scalping
knives, and war clubs in thc ground,
so tliat all.hostilc thoughts.might disappear.. It was well-known that the
presence of war weapons leads to war
at" limes.-*
A biind man states that he can tell
most shops by their distinctive scents
and that each street has its own
particular echo or sound when., the
pavement is tapped with, a light

/-Decay of the teeth caries, is a disease just the.same as tuberculosis or

Tlfc bacteria of decay are really tiny

A Step Toward Peace!.
A disarmament agreement by the
five great powers w.ould be "thc onc
great, step" toward prevention of "all
future wars," Senator Johnson, Republican, California, declared in the
senate, commenting on an editorial on
the subject in a New York paper.
Every sufferer from Asthma knows
the tcrror, the abject fear that overcomes them when struggling for
breath. Thc old-fashioned remedies may* help, 'but never cure.
Best results come from Catarrhozone, which relieves Asthma after hope
is abandoned. It's because Catarrhozone kills thc asthma germs that it
relieves. Choking spells and labored breathing arc rclievcd/'sufllbcating
sensations ahd loss of breath are relieved. Evcry trace of asthma is
driven from the system and even old
chronics experience immediate relief
and lasting benefit. Equally good for
bronchitis, throat trouble and
Catarrh. Thc large one drllar outfit includes the inhaler and lasts two
months, sold by all dealers or from
the Catarrhozone Co., Kingston,
Canada. .

Where there aie other membeis in
the family, ha\e the butcher split thc
bird in half and chop onc half into
small pieces. The other half maj be
cut into several larger pieces and, perhaps, made into stew, with rice fo:
the well members. But the half that
has been cl opped 111 veiy small
pieces is lhat from winch you make
}Oiir in-\alid broth.
Put thc pieces inlo a cook-pot and
epver tlicm with cold water. If the
physician has no objection to the
patient having salt in his diet, add
half a level teaspoonful of salt. Salt
helps to draw out the flavoring mat-
The smaller
arc the pieces the more perfectly will
this process of extraction bc accomplished. Thc bones, of course, should
be used, as well as thc meaty part.
Very gradually bring tho water to
the holing point. Then reduce thc
temperature, so that the mixture simmers very slowly. When the meat
has fallen from the bones remove thc
pot from the flame and strain. : Let
the broth cool. When cool the fat
'will have hardened into a cake, which*
can easily be removed from tlTc top.
This fat makes excellent shortening
for biscuits, for the well folk. Pour
off liquid carefully so as not to disturb the sediment from the bottom.'
The cold broth may either be stored
in a wide-mouthed covered jar in the
refrigerator, or it may be immediately reheated for use.
If the broth docs not seem as
clear as you Would like it, strain it
through double cheesecloth or stir the
lightly beaten white of onc egg into
;the hot broth. The egg in coagulating will draw to itself all tjie tiny
particles. This egg'may be strain-,
cd out and combined"with the chopped chicken strained out of the broth,
green pepper, onion and potatoes ancl
madc inlo a tasty hash for thc well
A pleasing variation of chicken
broth that a certain expensive sanatorium offers some patients, is chicken broth with egg custard. To make
lhc custard beat the yolk of one egg
slightly with a silver fork. Add a
few grains of salt, if permissible, and
a tablespoon each of water and milk.
Pour into a small buttered tin mold,
place in a pan of hoi water and bake
until firm. When cool, rcmove^rom
the mold and cut into fancy shapes,
such as diamonds, circles and the like.
Thc custard foims arc served with
thc broth.

as to the use of horses from an economic standpoint as against motors, H.
S. Arkell, Dominion Livestock Commissioner voiced the opinion that the
horse industry is one. which is likely
to come back lo real prosperity,, iu

Rats Eating Matches not a
Cause of Fire
In the lengthy category of reasons
and excuses for fires,, that of   friction due to the gnawing of .match
heads by rats and mice has had to
. bear its full share.    When all  else
: could prove an alibi the rats, were
blamed.    The   increasing number
of fires   attributed   to. this cause
emphasized.the necessity  of esta-
. blishing the possibility of it being
' .bona fide..;   ���_���.,;.Z-
The Underwriters' Laboratories,
Inc.;, of Chicago, after.careful  and
. prolonged experiments.by. its .fire
prevention engineers, has reached
the definite 7 conclusion that rats
would rather starve to death than
eab the modern match heads. :
This conclusion was. arrived at
... through a Eeries of elaborate tests,
covering a period of eight months
"and "more,. in which numbers of
rats \vere placed, in enclosures with
boxes of matches .arranged..so that
. ;hey could reach' them. iThie first
test' was' made without feeding: or
watering' the rats; in the'Becond
they:were given water, ..but-ho
food; and in the third they' were
.   given food and w ater for two,y?eeks
7 then ^starved; but snpiplied - with
water until they. died. Occasionally. ^ the strawboard boxes were
gnawned and the boxes broken
.open "- and ,matches scattered all
around,   bufe although  frequently
.." the rats ate one another, in no
case/were the match heads gnawed
���- nor was there any apparent danger
of ignition.
"-'���   . With-thiB positive evidence in
their possession,   investigators of
-fires will'view with   greater   sus-
,, picion a fire which can be  atferibu
;: ted to no other cause than that of
rats gnawing matches.
, Where future supplies of pulpwood may be obtained is a problem
very prominently in the forefront
with the pulp and paper interests.
With the tremendously increased
demand for newsprint, the price
has soared to a point where publishers are obliged to pass the additional cost to the newspaper readers
and the public is commencing to
appreciate how iutimately associated are the forests with its daily
New capital is constantly being
sought and new developments
planned to overcome the newsprint
shortage; this is creating a demand
for information as to what areas of
pulpwood are available, and their
proximity to waterpower sites.
The Commission of Conservation
as a result of its forest survey of
British Columbia, has published,
in a report "Forests of British Columbia," details of available sup-
plies of pulpwood and saw timber
iu thafe province. This information has proven of much value to
operators and investors, and the
demand for copies of the report
has been heavy.
Supplies of pulpwood in British
Columbia are estimated at 386,-
000,000 cords, of which 358,000,-
000 cords consist of spruce, balsam
and western hemlock, and.28,000/-
