that mining operations will start

Last week we noticed three
little boys on the sidewalk, nice
little fellows and the sons of nice
people, and they were swearing
big oaths in baby lisps.. They
needed spanking, but none of
them was likely to get it, which
is. a.great.pity, .for there is nothing like the broad hand to cure
the bad habit of baby swearing.
In fact nothing else will dp it.

The boys have returned to their
schools, the loved friends have
gone to their homes, and mothers
are-lonely, and -partings' make

\A/orld Insurance0Agamst War
Nearly five yours have passed since tlio signing of the Armistice pul. an
end to iiciiiiil hosiililios in the Creat Wsir. to be followed thy following year
by iho I'oaco Treaty and iho creation of ihe League of Nations with itrf covenant designed to brliiK about the peaceable sehlniient uf future (lupines between .unions. Vet tlio Allied armies are still in occupallou of Gorman soil'
and within tho year ihe French and Ilelgian forces have j.enotrated further
into (lermany in an effort lo compel recognition and payment of reparations.
Feeling between France and Germany i.s today possibly even more bitter
than it was on the day the bugles .������ounded "cease tiro." France, slill fearing
future German aggression, i.s determined to further cripple her traditional
enemy and thereby provide an adequate safeguard against any recurrence of
ihe horrors and devasiaiion through wliich she passed between August, 1011,
and November, :i!.l.S. Germany continues sullen and refuses to pay, insisting upon financial inability to do so.
Russia remains a menace lo the peace of the world, (listrusted by all nations and distrustful of all. Turkey defeated in the war, emerges triumphant
from the peace conferences because of jealousies and conflicting interests
among the nations allied in tho war. Suspicions are rife among all the Balkan states, each one more or less fearful of the other, each seemingly awaiting an opportunity to wrest from the other territory which they covet or claim
right fully belongs to thorn.
Tho United Slates, whose representatives palyed a foremost, part in bringing the League of Nations into existence and in framing its covenant, refuses
to have anything fo do with it and stands aloof in so-called splendid isolation
from the entanglements which they fear'"would result from parlicipation,.in
the task of endeavoring to bring order out of the chaos in Europe. JMean-
while, economic ruin stares counlry after country in tho face, national currencies have lost their value, world trade is handicapped, resulting in millions
of unemployed in Great. Britain, the sanest of all European Powers.
And now.because the Italian members of a commission engaged in fixing
an Albanian boundary lino aro assassinated, it is alleged by Greeks, the Italian
Government serves an ultimatum ou Greece, even before it is established
that Greeks were responsible for the outrage, which is reminiscent of Austria's ultimatum to Serbia which precipitated tho Great War. and because
Greece does not imniodialeli comply with all thc terms ot the Italian demands,
Italy proceeds fo bombard a Gioek inland and take possession of it, and, although a member of the League ol Nations, practically repudiates her signature to tlie covenant and declines she -v\ill withdraw irom the League if it
seek.-* to interlere in the dispute which has arisen wiih Greece.
Of uhat value is Italy, or any country, as a member of the League if it
remain.-, fiee to make war on another member? And yet tbe League of Nations olfeis the only hope fo lhc world that, inst as soon as it feels strong
enough to do so. s-omo nation will not again plunge the world into the" horrors
oi another Great War, and one wliich in its magnitude and slaughter would
tar surpass'the ono thiough ���which mankind has so recently emerged and
w.bich all but do.-trojed <-i\ ili/ation irsclf. \
Canadians sonn-timi'.-. a.->k them^eh'os why ihcy should bo taxed to main-
fain fhe League ol Nations, and wh\ prominent British and Canadian slates-
inon .should biiij themsehes (ravelling out the world lecturintr on behalf of
tho'League and encouraging the lormation ot branches of tne League of Nations Sociely. -lint sure!) ii ono only stops to think a moment it will bo
rea'lr/ed that the League, imported, though it may bo, offers the only insurance against war, and il there is any insurance worthcwhile it is protection
a gains! 'war.
Ilalj's attitude only serves to emphasize the importance of. organising
public opinion thoVworld over in support ot the League. Public opinion
make-; and unmakes Go\i rnminis, even where autocracies seem all powerful,
and it the masses ot the people in all countries, who-aie the chief sufferers In
war, stand solidlj back ol thy League, Governments will fall in line, with the
result thai the peace-loving League will become all powerful, and nations -will
be fjuick to complj with its'requests and abide by its impartial decisions.
- Even wiih.tho League w.ir i�� possible; without the League war would bo
not only probable, but almost a certainty in -view ot the present unsettled
state of the woikl.

"li any in my family wore sick with
stomach trouble or run-down condition, I would rather havo one bottle of
Tanlac than all the other medicines
put together," is tho positive statement of F. A. Barrowcliff, S Locomotive St., Hamilton, Ont., well-knoivn
yardman for tho' Grand Trunk Hail-
"MJ- wife's health was restored by
the Tanlac treatment in such short
order it was astonishing, for she suffered so terribly- .with nervousness,
headaches, sleeplessness and loss of
appetite that .1 thought she would
break down -completely.���.__ She went
meal' after .meal Avithout  eating; and
was so fearfully weak the care of our
five children and the housework was
more than she could do.
"After lier first few doses of. Tanlac*-'
my, wife was like an entirely different
person, and hasn't had a sick spell,
since she quit taking the medicine six
months ago. Tanlac has certainly
been a blessing in our house, and we
are glad to recommend it."
Tanlac is for sale by.all good druggists. Accept no substitute. Over

Accidents On Farms
Should Apply Safety First Principles
On Farm Same As Elsewhere
Another thing i'or which this summer has been remarkable is the number of accidents, some of them with
fatal termination, whicli have occurred to farmers while engaged in their
daily avocations. Perhaps the most
common" of these misfortunes took
place during the haying season, when
farmers perched on the top of their
loads fell to the ground and- received
serious bodily injury. .It is just as
important that life should be protected on the farm as in the factory, and
there seems to be a slackness in.this
respect, so far as the farm is-concerned: Prevention is better than cure,
and there appears to be room for some
"safety first" work in this direction.���

Chronic Sleepiness

Less serious in its results on

lenco is nevertheless a trying con
dition, for it is likely to interfere
sadly with the performance of tho
dally duties. In its minor degrees
tho sleepy slate conies on only in the
evening.     Many 'persons   who   have
household or office worlc to engage
their attention during the day are
able to attend to it perfectly well,
but immediately after the evening
meal when they sit down to read or to

asleep. That is the common form ot
the trouble, but there are other degrees up to a stupor almost like that
which occurs in epidemic meningitis,
popularly called "sleeping sickness.'.'

are numerous. The most c.pmmon.is

Bre&krag Down War Ammunition
Half-Million  Tons  Made  Harmless  In
Last Three Years
Surprising discoveries were made in
breaking down half a million tons of
British, French, Belgian and German
ammunition during the last three
The work .was undertaken by F. N.
Pickett and Sons, of London, who
carried out operations at some fifteen
collecting depots in France. . Workmen included Algerians, South African
Negroes, Chinese, French, Belgians,
Poles, Russians, Finns and British.
Despite the dangers of the undertaking, there were surprisingly, few
- "Of all the ammunition we bandied,
the safest was the British and the
weakest the German," said Mr. Pickett, to a reporter.
"British designs for fuses seem
to have been based on the assumption
that the ammunition would have to be
stored.     They proved sound.
"Tho Germans; on the other hand,
seem to have thrown together any
material they , could get without
thought as" to consequences when
i'U3oa aro exposed to the air or
weather. '.
"One of their fuses, known as the
'powder pellet,' exploded shells as
soon as they were touched by the
"In my opinion, the Germans were
lacking.in foresight. The wonderful
stories wo heard about their superior
knowledge on ammunition were ill-
founded. ~' 7 , -
��� "Tho result was that breaking down
tho German ammunition was the most
difficult problem to deal with. We
had to burn the contents of the German fuses like a torch; the British
we were able to wash out and preserve. 7
*��� "Some of the bigger German shells
were only half filled with explosive]*
sawdust, shop sweepings, plaster and
sand, in some cases had been used,
instead.^ In many instances the Germans must .have- been deceived by
their contractors.'- "     .7     '
"Among other things, we1 discovered
a method of storing ammunition and
minimizing the; effect of an explosion
by traverses and earthbags fixed at intervals' between shells. As a result
of experience, we found that it will be
possible to store any quantity of
shells in one dump without fear of a
terrific explosion."
Caused Loss of Sleep.
" I was troubled awfully with pimples on my face. Little white spots
formed at first which later broke out
in large, red pimples that festered
and scaled over. They itched and
burned causing loss of sleep, and
my.face was disfigured.
"Other remedies were used without success. A friend recommended
Cuticura Soap and Ointment so I
purchased some, and after using
them about a week I got relief. I
continued using them and in a
month was completely healed."

Reasons  For  Queer Habits
Japanese Have Logical Explanation
For Doing Things Backwards
"When I first went to Japan," a
long-time American resident of that
country is reported in the "Type
Metal Magazine" as saying, "they
seemed to do everything the wrong
way. They sawed wood by drawing
the saw toward them. They backed
their horses into the stalls. When
our clocks are striking one, theirs
would strike 11. Their blacksmiths
worked sitting down and when they
wanted to rest they stood up. But
gradually I learned that there was a
logical reason for each of these seemingly queer habits.
"Pulling the saw prevented buckling^ "When are you in a hurry���
when you put your horse in the stall
or when .you take him out?' was the
answer of the man. who' was ,ques-
tione'd about the horse. As to t be
clock, it seems that the Japanese
prefer to know how many hours are
left in the da.J rather than how many
have passed. And the blacksmith
who .sits down, works with his feet
as well as his bands���literally, he has
four/ hands, and he rests aii these
when he gets up."     .,

Five Provinces Show Considerable*

Tested '
There were 502 cow-testing centres,
2,685 dairy herds under test, and 26,-
203 tests' conducted this year, mainly
under- the supervision of Dominion-
dairy officials, up to the end of June
last. Five of the provinces show a
considerable increase in tbe number
of herds tested. Saskatchewan sbow3
the largest percentage of increase,
with New Brunswick next in line and
Alberta a close third. ~. The increase
ln Saskatchewan is largely due to the
efficient work of provincial officials.
In British Columbia, with five organized co-operative associations, approximately two thousand cows are tested
each month.
n Internally and Externally it is Good.
���The crowning property of Dr.
Thomas' Eclectric Oil is that it can b��
used internally for many complaints
as well as externally. For sore

in tbe chest, colic and many kindred
ailments it has qualities that are unsurpassed. A bottle of-it costs little
and there is no loss in always having
it at hand.

Combining the best work of artists
and printers and, setting forth the
beauties of Canada in a manner which
appeals; instantly to the eye, a new
j series o'f posters is being.issued by
j tbe Canadian National Railways and
are now being placed bn display in
the ofiices of the system and elsewhere in the Dominion and in oLher
countries. The grandeur of the Rockies, typified by Mount Robson, the
highest peak in the Canadian Rockies,
is depicted in an artistic design on
one of the posters, while another
shows a magnificent view of Mount
Edith Cavell and Lac Beauvert, all of
which are "on the- lines of the National
. The glint of sun ujon placid waters,
with motor boats-and other craft in
the foreground and Minaki Inn in the
background, carries to intending tourists a message of-J.be beauties of that
section of Ontario which lies just 114
miles east of Winnipeg.
The Great Lakes and Port Arthur
are depicted in a poster showing the
lake and rail route offered to tourists
_travelling_between _Eastern_and Western Canada, a "deck scene on the S.S.

A Butterfly Farm
Would Raise Insects in California for
Color and Decorations
An application for permission to establish a butterfly farm on public domain in the Angels Forest reserve lias
been made to Supervisor R. H. Charlton, Los Angeles, Cal., by John Hewlett, of Redlands, California.
Hewlett stated that if permission
were granted to him to use forty
acres for that purpose, he would
plant the entire tract in flowers ho
believes butterflies like particularly,
and would raise the insects for color
and decorations.
Predicts Doctors Will Teach Health
Instead of Disease Being Cured it Will
Be. Prevented
Dr. J. C. Lawson, of Los Angeles,
made tho prediction that the world
is not far away-from the time when
the 'doctors > will be teachers or
health -instead-of- doctors of-disease.-
He contends tliat disease was not an
entity, but an abnormal condition.
Fear and pessimism in ���" civic and
physical life were destructive and
had to be overcome by their ob-
posites���optimism and knowledge.
When people knew - what health waa
and how it could be maintained, there
would be no need for fear. He in
stanced the various conceptions of disease and how they all had one common cure.    - . -'

E. Waterman and A.   S.   Black,
of   Princeton,   were   in   town  on
Wednesday of last week and met a
number of the  leading  citizens in
matter of the Hope-Princeton connecting link of the  transprovincial
highway.      They   visited /.all  the
towns in the inerior and addressed
meetings in most of the towns and
they found that   the interior  was
solidly in favor of the Hope-Prince
ton   route.    The  reason   of  their
trip   was  because  Kamloops had
broken faith.with  the interior and
was   now  pulling  for the  Fraser
Canyon route and disfavoring the
Hope-Princeton route.
There was only 84 miles on the
Hope-Princeton route to be completed which could be done in a
year, at a cost of about $600,000
while tho Fraser canyon would cost
oyer $2,000,000. TheJHope-Prince-
ton route would open up tbe vast
resources of the southern portion
of tho province, while the route
north would not in any way .boost
the southern interior. The road
route from Kamloeps to the
coast by the Hope-Princeton route
would be only eight miles further
than by tbe Fraser Canyon way,
but should the Fraser Canyon
route be built, all the cities and
towns of the southern interior
would be taken 160 miles out of
their way in going to the coast.
Figures compiled by the government had stated that the route,
which at the highest point had an
elevation of 4450 feet, would be
accessible to traffic from June to
On Monday night the City Cou n-
cil passed a resolution favoring the
Hope-Princeton route and the
Board of Trade will meet shortly
to consider a similar resolution.

interest in the ranch be purchased near Calgary on his'
;.memorable tour of the Dominion, and his desire, to visit
it is but a fresh indication of the importance he attaches
to it and the work it is doing. Immediately after purchasing, the ranch'/, and before returning to England, the
Prince made arrangements for the shipment pf some of
the best stock in the British Isles to the Canadian West.
Thoroughbred horses came from the Royal stud, shorthorns from the King's farm,.'shropshi're sheep .'from the
Duke ' ol.' Westmihster'-s, estate, -' and hardy - JOartmoor

.Thus the Prince has demonstrated that his purchase
ofthe ranch was not a matter bf sentiment or commercial profit, but'a genuine desire to foster the breeding
of .better livestock in the West... His efforts have been-
eminently successful... At all provincial exhibitions the
animals from the High, river ranch are attractive features,
and last Fall; shorthorn cattle, constituting the first
commercial sales the ranch has effected, commanded top
prices:"     " ���   "7'���    .���-        ' -""      ' ��
Cattle froni the E.. P. exhibited at the stock show
at the Calgary Stampede, were heavy prize winners, and
sheep and itorses from the same ranch crested an un-
paralled standard.
The Royal rancher has planned to arrive at Quebec
on. September ,12th on the Canadian Pacific steamship
"Empress of France". The palatial liner, lS,00O tons,
which was the flag ship of the 10th Cruiser Squadfou on
Northern patrol duty during the. War is the most up-
