your neighbor says she doesn't care, but she does. . It would annoy you if

His
Relics of Pioneer Days
Prices and Wages Which Prevailed
Over a Century Ago
Tlio approaching celebration at Lho
city of Belleville on Juno 16'and 17
next ot' tho sotileiueni of Upper Canada lias started many persons searching after relics of pioneer days. \V.
S. Jferrington, K.C., historian-and
archivist of lho Ontario Bar Asocia-
tion, has discovered bundles of neatly
folded documents and accounts of the
late Col. William Bell, which disclose
some interesting in format ion concerning early conditions in iho Bay of
Quinlc district. Col. Boll was a merchant, a school teacher aud a man who
mado himself generally userul to the
early settlers in and around Thurlow
Village, now iho city of Belleville.
The following prices of various commodities, also wages for labor, prevailing at Thurlow Village over a century ago and during tho 22 years immediately following iho settlement of
Australian   Professor   Thinks   United
States Will Be the Centre of
Population
North America i.s destined by climate and resources to bo the world's
groat ceutro of white population and
civilization within two or three centuries, says Professor Griffith Taylor,
Australian teacher and man of science.
The results of his remarkable studies
are embodied in an article by Ransom Carpenter in "Our World."
"The author's vision, in moments
when ho leaves aside lho cold display
of methods, discloses a world, say two
or three centuries hence, with five
great regions of white population,
similar in density to tho Europe of
today, centering in city clusters or
���conurbations' around. Chicago, London, Sydney, Buonos Ayre's, and Durban in South Africa.
"The North American legion will
loom over the others. Food for th.e
vast populations will bo ihc world's
greatest, problem.
"In trying to find out why one place
is belter than another for tho while i
settler,  if is easier  first to  consider
what keeps him out. of some places.
��� Obviously, the regions-he'will;"seek in
���crowds.will'no't'be loo hoi. orlop cold.

York Times, "I was an advanced stu- riding:
dent, able to road, write and repeat
the sayings of tho Prophets." He
finished his education at Tetuan and
became learned in law and jurisprudence. "I wanted to know everything
that happened In the past," he said,
"for in those days 1 believed that wisdom lay In books." But one evening
a woman reached the village and asked for a gun, saying that robbers had
killed her husband. "Is there no
man who will go with me?" shc asked.
The appeal touched Italsuli and a
number of youths, who exacted tho
usual revenge and then took to the
hills. "The life of el Raisuli was decided by a woman,"' he says, "for from
lhat time 1 was discontented with my
books. I liad1 no wish for a roof over
my head." Ho and his baud made
passing caravans pay according to
their wealth. "But," he says. "I
look nothing from tho poor. To
them I gave much and they blessed

"My Back Aches"
IT is not much wonder that the mother
in the home has backaches and headaches when yon think of the multiplicity of work and worries she-has from
morning until night and from week to
week. X ���
But pains and aches come from poisons
in the system and if the kidneys and liver:_
were doing their duty as filters of the"
blood the  poisoning  would  not remain
there.
This is why it is usual to blame tho
kidneys and the liver for backache, headache, rheumatism etc." '
The way to get rid of such pains and
aches,# then, is by arousing the action of
the kidneys and liver and this is most
promptly and most certainly done by the
use_of Dr. Chase's Kidnev-Liver Pills;
By using this popular medicine you can
usually obtain relief in a few hours.
.You will realize then the^advisability of
using Dr. Chase's Kidney-Li ver Pills once
or twice a week so as to keep these vital
organs active and ensure- that the poisonous waste matter is promptly removed
from the system.
In most homes this.medicine is kept
cjmstantly on hand for use in case of
emergency.   Not abad idea, is it?
You will notice that while the price of
Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills has been
increased to 35 cents, the box now contains 35 pills instead of 25 as formerly.
Likewise Dr.  Chase's  Nerve- Food  is
60 cents a box .of 60 pills, instead of 50.
cents  a  box  for  50  pills.     Edmanson.

ERIOUSPROBLEM
FACESNEWPARTY
INGREATBRITAM
London.���Sir Eric Geddes, addressing the annual meeting of the Federation of British Industries in London, J
expressed the hope thai the Labor
Government, if one should be formed,
would seek the advice of the federation, as Its predecessors have done,
hut lo an even greater degree, because
lhe Labor party anyhow could not
claim at present to have within their
ranks the experience which the older
parlies had of superior direction of
great industrial undertakings or the
experience of governing.
A serious problem, said Sir Eric,
would face any government __which
did anything to throw more men out
of employment by upsetting the confidence whereon British trade flourished. World trade and the prosperity
of Great Britain were balanced on a
knife edge, aud very Utile might3 turn
the balance. .
Sir Eric continued that there ..was
a distinct tendency toAvards trade improvement. With this delicate situation very little might turn"the scale.
A hasty or ill-considered administrative act, or proposals for legislation,
even if irresponsible or not fully responsible, might shako confidence.   ..
'���There is no doubt that lho advent
of a new parly, of which certain extreme members make proposals which
shock us, has caused uneasiness.
There has been no panic, and the sky
is not black with pound notes winging
their way across the Atlantic, bul
there is-no doubt that a lot of investing is being dono. abroad. If the
risks of investment due to ihe politial
sittiation be deemed too great, the people will invest elsewhere, industry will
suffer, employment will suffer and the
purchasing' power of the homo market
will decrease.. I would say to whatever government is in power that the
present position i.s one of extreme delicacy. This.I.s not a time for personal feeling or party'fads. It is a
time for careful, catiliotis statesmanship, for weighing every act and word,
for great courage and patience."���
No Cruelty In This
liod of Pouitrymen
. Ottawa.���Local poultry lovers
and ollicials of the Humane Society are discussing the recent de-
cisioniof the Illinois Humane Society that it is cruelty to havo
electric lights burning In henneries thereby forcing hens -'to lay.
Commenting on tho subject, Dr. J.
S. Grisdale, deputy minister of
agriculture, said that there was no
law to stop poultry raisers forcing
their hens to lay under artificial
lighting conditions. "I don't sec
any signs of cruelty In it," asserted Dr. Grisdale. "Wo have been
doing It for years at the experimental farm."

Chas. A. Dunning, of Saskatchewan,
was called to Otttiwa with the object
of inducing.him to become a member
of Premier Mackenzie King's cabinet
were exploded by. Mr. Dunning upon
his return from the capital city.
"I did not go to Ottawa with any intention of ��ntering the federal political field and Mr. King did riot ask me
to join his government," said Mr. Dunning in an interview withjlhe Morning Leader.
The Saskatchewan Premier continuing, said:
"Mr. King desired,to discuss with
me a number of questions most. of
them matters of policy of great importance to the people of Saskatchewan.
"When requested to go to Oltawa
for this purpose I was glad to do so
especially as the circumstances also
gave me an opportunity to urge more
strongly the view I have frequently
expressed publicly, lhat the best interests of Canada and especially of the
west demand closer co-operation between. Liberals and Progressives."

EXPERT SPEAKS !
ON PROBLEMS
OFTHEFARMER
Saskatoon���In advising farmers
how to deal with the present situation
affecting dhe production of grain and
livestock in Western Canada, Hugh-J".
Hughes, of tho market branch, department of agriculture, for Minnesota, at
the sessions of the Saskatchewan Agricultural Society convention said:
"Live as well as possible, develop the
home market, put your acres to work,
produce what the world wants, foster
co-operative marketing and' spend
freely.
Ho declared at the outset of his address, tluit the feeling that farm conditions are uniformly unfavorable, is
far from correct. Mr. Hughes is
director of marketing of the depart-
mentbf agriculture, Minnesota, and is
a recognized authority in his chosen
branch of work. He made his address" the occasion for stock taking of
farming conditions in the Canadian
western provinces.
"The cotton growers of the United
States, of India, of Egypt and Brazil,"
said the speaker, "are now enjoying a
marked -wave of prosperity. The
growers of tobacco are., not looking
about for economic relief. The wool
producer ihe world over Js sharing the
prosperity, that is common to those
products in which the consumptive demand outruns the supply. Dairy products, including butler, cheese and
eggs likewise aro sharing in this general tide of prosperity. Insofar as
world production and trade are concerned our nearness to the problems
of livestock and grain _ productions
make us feel acutely a situation that
is more or less local, and I will confine myself to the survey of conditions
that affect directly the great agricultural industries of your western provinces," the production of grain and
livestock:"
For the remainder of ' his address
Mr. Hughes confined himself to three
phases, of the question: 'first, tho unfavorable factors that affect our grain
and livestock farming; second, the
factors that are in our favor; and
third," how to adapt ourselves to lho
situatiori.
���Dealing., with the' advantages enjoyed by the Western Canadian grain
farmer, Mr_Tlugb.es stated that one of
the most outstanding was the soil and
climate,permitting the .production of
grain! carrying the highest protein content, " "The' Canadian fanner," he
added, "can produce more food per
man than any other farmer on the
globe. He is something like six to
eight-times as efficient as the best farmer in continental Europe... 11 is this
man and farm efficiency that enables
him to place ~ his product on .the
world's markets with the competition
of the peasant labor of Siberia,! the
painstaking, efficient labor of Centra!

Will Curtail Expenditures
Report that Federal Government Will
Cut the Coat According to
the Cloth
Olta.wa.���Financial     and     banking
questions promise to bc foremost in
the parliamentary session which is to
begin on the 2Sth of February.   . In
estimates now being prepared, an attempt, it is said, will be made to cut
the coat according to the cloth, and
balance expenditures   and   revenues.
If this can be accomplished, a very
sparse programme of public works will
be proposed.
It 'is agreed here, lhat something
will have to be done about taxation.
From many quarters whose opinions
are respected come complaints aboul.
taxation being a burden tipon industry
and commercial enterprises, and some
effort to lessen it will bo made. The
sales tax is. certain to bc modified
some way, but whether the income tax
will be changed Is more doubtful. If
anything at all. is done in the direction
of lessening taxation, a number of the
S outlays being advocated are- likely to
"go by the board. In regard to banking, and iu tho light of the experience
in the case of the Home Bank, it is believed that a measure of government
inspection of head offices will be .introduced. The disposition .here is ad-

Home Bank case; the argument being

Saved Berlin From Capture
American  Officer  Declares  Foch  Was
Against Invasion of German'
Capital
New York.���Marshal Foch personally saved Berlin from an invasion by
allied troops after the victorious
drives, just before the Armistice in
191S, il was revealed by Major-General
Henry T. Allen, former commander of
ihc United Slates Army of Occupation.
Foch's reason for not taking Berlin,
General Allen said, was that it. would
have been a gigantic task to hold the
vast territory, wliich included Hanover and other largo cities.
Before deciding tlie question, General Allen said, the French marshal
conferred with Field-Marshal Haig,
Marshal Petaln,-and General Pershing.

THE DISCUSSION
Winnipeg.���Declaring that ihe principle applied that "the King can do no
wrong," and that il would not be a
matter of good policy lo bring the representative of tho King into a public
controversy, Premier Bracken refused,
in the Legislature, to table correspondence between the government and thc
Lieutenant-Governor, Sir' James
Aikins. .
The correspondence was asked for
by J. T. Haig, Conservative, and related to the transfer of ihe comptroller-general's department to the treasury and proposed Investments by the
provincial savings ollice, among other
matters.
Premier Bracken took the floor in
the debate on the reply to the throne
speech, and gave the House a lively
time, with detailed replies to criticism which had been hurled at the
government by Hon. T. C. Norris,
leader of the opposition, and Major
A. G. Taylor, leader of the Conservative group. Ho closed his speech
with ii plea thai all members should
work for the welfare, noi of parly or
constituents, but of the province and
the people as a whole.

The Immortal Memory
ROBBIE BURNS
Bom 25th Jan.. 1759
Died 21st July, 1796
In the realm of literature Scotland has many distinguished sons.
Years have added to their glory
and praise but aboon them a'
shines clear and undimmed���
"The Star o' Rabbie Burns"
In our own time perhaps more
than any other the message of the
peasant poet is appreciated. This
is the age of Freedom���Independence���and who can estimate the
influence of Burns in the creation
of the modern spirit of democracy.
His life was one long disheartening struggle for even the bare
necessities of life yet he dared Bing
the songs of contentment.
"Then let us cheerfu'acquiesce;
Nor make our scanty pleasures less,
By pining at our state;
And even should misfortunes come,
I, here wha sit, hae met wi* some,
An's thankfu' for them yet.
They gi'e the wit of age to youth;
They let us ken oursel';
They make us see the naked truth,
The real guid and ill.
Though losses, and crosses,
Be lessons right severe,
There's wit there, ye'll get there,
Ye'll find nae otherwhere."
Burns opinion of what constitutes
tbe real man has found echo in
every honest heart. Cant���snobbery��� pride of rank���in men who
possess no real personal worth
nor purity, of life he makes a
scathing attack on in "A man's
a man for a' that."
"The rank is but the guinea's stamp
The man's the gowd for a' that."
We close this poor tribute to so
great a poet and man echoing his
prayer.
"That man to man, the world o'er,
Shall brothers be for a' that."
evidence of various officers of the firm of
Foley, Welch & Stewart and others will

very important iacts be obtained.
As you are aware, the Provincial Party
endeavored at the last session of the
Legislature of the Province of British
Columbia, to have the Public Enquiries
Act so amended as to admit of taking evidence of witnesses oulside of British
Columbia. A bill to make such an
amendment law was defeated by the
action of Attorney-General Manson. A
course such as we suggest would do something to overcome this neglect.

of Sir Charles Hibbert Tupper, K.C.M.G ,
K.C.^Mr. E. P. Davis, K.C., and Mr, h.
G. McPhillips, K.C-, in, as you say, inducing a number of Provincial party supporters to sign what you claim is a libelous document, that is, the petition 'asking
for a Royal Commission to' investigate P.
G. E. Railway and Sumas scandals and
the receipt by yourself and Mr. Sloan of
$50,000 apiece;
You have already been assured that the
dqcmnentjwas intended tolbe. signed by
the whole of the Provincial executive
officially for our membership, and that
some of the three gentlemen mentioned
tire, pn that executive.
However, as you still insist on the
point, I have the authority ol* the three
gentlemen named above, and of Mr. A. H.
MacNeill, K.C., who was one of the
advisory committee, to say that if you
choose to bring a libel action against all
or any of them, they will admit in such
an action against myself. "',
It has been noted that iu some of your
comments..on the petition referred... to;
you have .stated that the charge against
you is that.you received. $50,060, mentioned mthe petition for yorr personal
