Why Catch Cold?
Many people seem to think that
colds, so-called, are part and parcel of life's regime, that it is no
use trying to avoid them.
It should be borne in mind that
'colds are seldom acquired by cold
weather, else aviators and Arctic
explorers would have a succession
of them and seldom be free. The
place to escape colds ie the Arctic
or Antartic.
Colds are almost invariably
transmitted from person to person,
and the'main thing to do is to
keep oneself in a coid-reeisting
state of health and spirits. Fresh
air is a certain specific against cold.
To sleep with the window" ."open
even if a gale is blowing is also a
good rule.

banning Work ol 1920
The need of briiiehsiT tlu- volume-
of production front the fields, Lhc forests, the fisheries, the mines unci tlie
manufacturing industries of Canadti
to the highest possible point [his year,
utul in succeeding years, is so clearly
recognized by r-uulenis of world nuance iind economies that it is not to be
wondered at that ihey are so insistently preaching the, gospel of greater
production. There is danger, however,
that this constant dwelling npon lhe
need and duty of greater production
may cause a feeling ot" impatience and
resentment among those who arc engaged   iti   productive   work   and   who
I thc world's highest prices. Unlike
producers   of  some  articles   ot   com-
: rncrcc, thcy need entertain no fear of
their products being a drug on the
market, or of facing thc necessity of
selling at slaughter or bargain counter prices.
There is another reason why maximum food production will be good
nisincss tor Canadians, individually
and collectively, in 1920. Not only
are. thcy assured of adequate markets
and good prices for all thcy can produce, but heavy production and largc
exports will enable them io buy more
cheaply abroad. Canadians, of necessity, must buy largely in the United
States.    Wc. buy far more from    that
j country than we sell to it. To thc
extent thai our exports to the United Slates fail ip balance our imports
from that country we must pay in
good hard cash. Because of the adverse balance of trade against us thc
et't'eci has beeu for somc time past
that it takes aboul. $108.00 to $110.00
ot Canadian money to pay for every
SHHI.III) worth uf goods purchased by
t.'aiiaila iti the United Statcs. This
enormously increases lhc cost ol* everything; American bought by a Canadian fanner. It increases the price

which shows distinctly the ruins of an
ancient city extending twenty miles
along the Tigris River and two miles
and a half wide, largc enough to shelter casi'y 4,000.000 inhabitants. This
city would never have been, noticed
on thc level, since it is not marked
by anything but scattered hillocks,

with unnecessary .salts, Ruggles ceded
her hi-, place. Misses Bulbul, -Ales-
sandra, and Roxana wcrc still standing, and there was a peculiar warmth
in thc eyes of the gorgeous Georgian
beauty.as they-followed every movement of Ruggles. Miss Elliot looked
at thcm all critically, theu at Rugglcs,
whose face had turned rather white
from tl.e pain in his ankle due lo_ the
strain put upon it when supporting
Rosa. Miss Elliot understood. Her
bright eyes had caught thc contraction of his features as he had practically carried tlic girl to the divan.
"Won't you sit down, Mr. Ruggles," said shc, and pushed a chair
to where hc was standing.
Rugglcs thanked her with his
qui,ck)<5flashing smile, aud his blue
eyes travelled from her to the three
expectant girls, who wcrc watching
him with a devouring intentucss. As
they met those of Roxana, the long
lashes of the lovely Georgian quivered. A marvelous rosy wave of color
flooded' her exquisite complexion. .It-
was the first lime since ' childhood
that any man but thc venerable Hamid Pasha had looked upon her vtn-
\'cilcd face, and her emotion was almost lhat of a maiden surprised at
her sylvan bath by some Prince
Charming hunting^-in  thc forest.
From timc immemorial, Trans-Caucasia has supplied the harems of Turkey, Persia, ancl Egypt with lovely
girls, just as Roitinelia has supplied
rose attar, and thc Crimea silk. _ It
has been a commerce, degrading,
from the Occidental point of view,
but not cruel. A lovely daughter
born to a poor Caucasian family was
a gift of the gods in more senses than
one, and lhat region is famous for
its lovely girls, as why should it not
be, considering lhat il was thc cradle
of human physical perfection.
Once a daughter of sonic rugged
mountaineer of trie provinces of Ku-
tais or Kars or Tiflis was discovered
to be endowed with beauty and intelligence, her fortune was assured ���
and usually that of her family. Her
plainer sisters cut thc wood and hauled thc water and tended the goats,
 while Miss Beauty loqkher t-asc.aiHl
laved her skin with fresh cream, and
slept, and grew daily more beautiful,
' until, as a little girl of ten or twelve,
she was purchased by some travelling merchant of this trade, and the
price paid would sometimes raise a
whole family from poverty to afllu-
ence. The family was as glad as
though the daughter had madc a brilliant match, as very frequently she
did. Thc "girl was glad, because it
meant social success, from the Near-
Oriental point of-view.
Perhaps she might bc sold at once
as odalisque, or little housemaid, in
somc rich household, possibly that of
the Padisha himself, whore shc would
perform light services and play in
the sunny gardens and be taught music and dancing and intellectual accomplishments. Perhaps the merchant, seeing greater possibilities of
profit, might havc her educated al his
own expense up to the lime of her
maturity. She was not degraded physically. One does not smirch a priceless pearl or drive in a coster cart a
filly that may one day win the Grand
Prix., No, Iicr lofwas destined to be
an easy one, for thc Turks, as husbands, are proverbial for their kind-
d ncss and indulgence to their women-
Such a girl" was tfiat lovely maiden,
Roxana, daughter of- a herder of Tiflis. She had been since her tenth
year of the household of Abdul Hamid, who was related to Hamid Pasha, and who had given him thc little
girl not long before his deposition.
Hamid Pasha had planted her inOiis
garden as one might plant a lovely
flower, and watched her bloom_ with
the same deep poetic appreciation.
But what of Roxana? Where did
shc. as an individual enter into the
general scheme of things? What of
her soul and her highly active intelligence?
Up to this time neither had suffer-
'   cd.    Lessons of various sorts had occupied her mind healthfully and sufficiently; shc had been taught music,
��� dancing, and two   languages besides
her own���French and English, which
in thc hot heart of this mountain
goddess, sank down into the chair
offered by Miss Elliot and looked
about him wilh a smile.
"Sit down, ladies," said he. "You
mustn't mind me. I'm still pretty
shaky." lie glanced over at the divan. "Feeling better, Rosa?" he asked.
The girl slipped from her cushions
with thc lithe grace of a kitten and
crossed thc room.
"Yes," she answered, "I am all better ��� and I will get you a something
on whicli to rest your foot, for you
are  lamed."
Shc pushed an ottoman to Ruggles's chair, and,-kneeling, raised "his
ankle, which was still bandaged, and
shoved the cushion beneath it. Then
shc looked up at thc young man with
a smile."
"Thai i> more. coirjforliiig?'' stie
"Yes, that's more comforting,"
Rugglcs answered, smiling back al

Roxana, however, remained standing,
her tawny eyes glowing at Rosa. She
was wondering why shc had been so
stupid as nol to think of the ottoman.
All of her short lifc she had been
trained to please somc lord and master, and here was this child from
Cyprus forethiiiking her! She should
get a good slap or a twisted pinch
for that, at bedtime.

The Dog's Acute
Sense of Hearing
Bulk of His Mind Reading Is Done
By Ear
"I have seen people laugh when a
dog howled shrilly on hearing the
notes of a violin or bugle, writes Mr.
A. P. Terhune. "They thought he was
trying to sing an accompaniment to
the music. He was not. He was
in anguish. Canine hearing is
many more times acute than is that
of a man and a high-pitched music
note has the same effect on the tympanum as would the point of a cambric needle. Thosc who like to amuse

Fido "sings" when thc fiddle oi thc

This same uncanny sense of ucaiing
tells him of the faintest change in
his master's mood. A shade of tone,
which would escape a aunun is not
only audible but translatable to a
dog. When people brag that Rove
"understands everything we say" thcy
arc mistaken. At best, he understands barely one-tenth of it. But he
does understand the way they say it.
"No courtier ever hung upon his
sovereign's humors with half thc zest
that the right kind of a dog lavishes
on those of his master. And it is
by this sense of hearing that he
catches the nature of these varying
moods. True, he scans and reads the
face too. But the bulk of his mind
reading is done by ear."

Sir George E. Foster, Minister of

dwelt on the problems facing the people, declaring that "if a mighty call
was necessary to raise armies for the
war an equally inspiring -evangel
would be required to enlist the armies
necessary to overcome the ravages of
that war." Ho greatly deprecated the
disbanding of thc war-time societies
and urged that they should be continued and put into lhe new work of
reconstruction. Speaking of the reconstruction problems facing thc
country Sir George said: "some of us
are anxious to reconstruct thc world
and wc are attempting to begin it
before wc have reconstructed ourselves," adding that when people

Electrification Of
Railways Suggested
Would Permit a Marked Reduction
in  Labor Cost
As one mcans of economizing in
the management of the government
railways, the Toronto Globe urges
thc electrification of . unprofitable
branch lines in Ontario. It says that
"with increased wages and higher
prices for coal, machinery, rolling
stock and general supplies there is
a growing number of branch lines
that do not earn even operating expenses. The change from steam to
electricity would permit i marked
reduction in labor cost.. A motor-
man, conductor and baggageman
would suffice to operate a train, as
compared with engineer, fireman,
conductor, brakeman and baggageman  on  the regular  steam train.
"Unless the cost of changing over
from steam to electricity is found to
add too greatly to, thc fixed charges
of the railways, it would seem that
thc economies in operation possible
as a result of thc adoption of electric haulage would permit of a more
frequent and more satisfactory service than is now supplied on many
Ontario branch  lines."
