The fourth hockey game in the
Boundary League was played at
the local rink last Friday night,
when Grand Forks defeated the
Greenwood boys by a Hcore of 5-3.
This makSs the league standing a
tie, both teams having won two
games. The fifth game was to
have been played in Grand Forks
on Tuesday, but the Greenwood
team were stalled by a breakdown
of their motor near Eholt, making
it impossible for them to reach
the Forks. This match was postponed until Wednesday evening,
and up to the time of going to
press the result- of -the game-has
nob been received.
o
Friday's contest proved a real
thriller, both teams worked hard
from the face-off, and their was
not a dull moment during the
whole game. Greenwood had the
best of the play during the first
period, with Grand Forks having
the advantage in the other two.
The local tried hard to hold the
lead in the'second period, but the
visitors were able to overcome ife
with strong team play. In the
last period a few minutes before
time the home boys made a strong
effort bufe the Visitors were equal
to th6 play-and- fehe-ganie ended"

The Old Year and the New
When the great guns along the
western battle front in Europe were
silenced at the eleventh hour on the
eleventh day of thc eleventh month
in 191.8, by thc signing of thc armistice, most people throughout thc
world expected that before another
twelvemonth expired a Peace Treaty
would    be drafted    and ratified    ancl
brought into full force and effect. But j as  thcir national watchword in  1920.
many parts of thc West, industrial
unrest and trouble, political uncertainty, and the delay in peace ratification, resulting in commercial handicaps and losses, coupled with the
still mounting cost of living as a result of these and other untoward conditions, Canada has gone ahead and,
prospered. And if our people in the
new year now dawning continue to
bc inspired with the thought, and animated by a pressing desire to keep
faith with those who died that Canada might live and be free, then the
year upon which we arc entering will
prove glorious in the annals of this
Dominion.
But it is only iiv steadfastly keeping the faith lhat this young, vigorous
and promising nation can become the
mighty influence for good in the
world that its present position, so
dearly won for it by the soldiers of
Canada, entitles it to wield. And to
become truly great and a power for
good among thc nations, it is not sufficient that Canada should produce
great crops of wheat, develop great
herds of cattle and other livestock,
and enormously expand its export
trade throughout thc world. These
are important and necessary, but it
is even more important that' high
ideals should be cultivated, that education should bc general, that thc
moral lifc of our people be raised to
a higher plane, that.thc health and
physical standard of people bc improved, that unity in purpose and national ideals should prevail.
In a word, Canadians as a people
should adopt the word "co-operation"

Sheep Breeders
Have Made Over $500 During the
Past Year
Two small Edmonton boys, 12 and
14 years old, havc madc over $500
during the past year in the sheep
business. Last winter thcy had fourteen ewes, four ewe lambs and one
ram. From thirteen of these ewes
thcy had seventeen lambs. Thcy sold
thc wool this summer for $100,- as
.veil as $405 worth of sheep, and havc
left fourteen ewes, nine ewe lambs
and one rain.
Thcy exhibited two lambs at thc
spring show, got first and second
prizes, and in addition to this caring
for a hundred or so chickens. They
passed thc entrance and arc now in
high school.
The names of these, two energetic
farmers arc Willis and Robert Car-
lyle, sons of the livestock commissioner of the province, who has a
farm about four miles out of Edmonton.
Germany Agrees to
Reimburse Belgium
Will Remit Bonds to Bear Interest
of Five per Cent.
Thanks to the "initiative of Mr.
Delacroix, Premier and Finance Minister of Belgium, Germany has agreed
definitely to reimburse thc sum of 5,-
500,000,000 francs in paper money issued during the German occupation
of Belgium. The reimbursement is to
begin on April 1, 1920, when Germany
will remit bonds, to be redeemed at
the'latest in 20 years and to bear'interest at the rate of 5 per cent. Thc
great difference existing between the
present and the normal rates of exchange accounts for the fact that thc
interest is to bc declared twice yearly.
Thus Belgium will bc repaid a part
of thc debt owing to her and will become a creditor to Germany for a
sum four limes greater in marks than
the original debt by reason of the rate
of exchange.

Of Saskatchewan
more than a year has passed and, at
thc timc of writing, the nations of
the world are still technically at war,
although actual fighting ceased on
November 11, 1918.
Although peace has not yet com?
in its fullness, thc year now closing-
has been a memorable onc in thc
history of -the world. It has witnessed the drafling and acceptance
by most nations of a covenant of a
League of Nations for the preservation of peace once it is established;
it has seen incorporated in that covenant the ncw Magna Charta of
Labor. Thus has the foundation been
laid for better relationships, not only
between nations, but between two of
the outstanding classes to be found
in a nation, and which in the past-
have been suspicious of and antagonistic towards each other.
The year also witnessed the crowning infamy of thc German nation in
thc sinking of the surrendered German fleet at Scapa Flow. It has
been marked by widespread industrial
upheavals, throughout ��� the" work!,
froni which Canada did not.-escape,
although in" comparison "with" oilier
lauds wc got- oft' lightly. '.
The  principal  upheaval '.in   Canada
' has becn-in the political thought -of-
thc. people, a turning away from old
"organizations created for the purpose
-of giving.effect lo lhc political aspirations of the people, and an acceptance of. a. new- political, movement
which il is felt by .many offers greater'hope of an ��� early  realization     of
.needed    political    and ' economic reforms iu 'this' Dominion. '"-:"        .:
In.'this -column just one  year  ago
.the soul-stirring -words', of ���.the": poem
by the.late.Colonel- McCrea "In Flanders' .Fields'," was '. quoted, in "which
the people, of- Canada and-the world
-were urged to 'keep faith- witli those
who. lie sleeping where the'blood-red.
poppies grow. - In the, year thai has
siiice passed, we believe, "speaking
generally; "that thc peoplc-pf .Canada

The principle of co-operation draws
thc whole community together. It
breaks down barriers. It unites thc
state. It gives hope lo the humblest
toiler. And it strengthens the great
moral ideal of duty, without which
no state can endure.

The value of dairying throughout
Cheese Factories
Thc value of diarying throughout
Saskatchewan is rapidly becoming a
considerable factor in thc wealth of
thc province. Evcry ycar sees an increased ,number of creameries and
cheese factories and a corresponding
increase in the value of their products.. Production figures for 191S are
84.39 pcr cent, greater than in 1914.
And the increase is a striking evidence of what the Saskatchewan farmer .was doing to relieve thc shortage
in fat foods during thc period of the
war. That thc central part of thc
province is undergoing the greatest
development and demonstrating its
ability lo produce dairy products is
evidenced by thc fact that in four
ycars ils dairy industry has increased
more than 165 per cent. This has
been done in spite of the fact lhat
during the past few years the abnormally high prices which have prevailed for all classes of grain and
concentrate feeds, and the extreme
shortage of labor during lhc war havc
tended lo make dairy development
very  difficult.
Statistical returns for 1918 show
that while therc was an increase over
the previous year of 68,241 cattle of
all classes, within thc province therc
was a decrease of 1,414 in thc number
of milch cows. This decrease in the
number of cows milked is doubtless
due lo labor shortage, but when wc
view these figures in the light of the
i increased dairy "output, thcy constitute a striking assertion of what is
being done to improve the dairy cow
in Saskatchewan and by better feeding and care lo increase her average
output. Last year there were 38
creameries in operation in the province t situated in evcry part of Saskatchewan, representing an investment in buildings and equipment of
$897,000. These creameries manufactured more than 5,009,000 pounds f6f
better valued at over $2,221,000, while
lli'o wholesale value of milk, cream,
artK'other products was' au additional
$900,000.
A further evidence of thc imperial.co of the creamery industry in our
agricultural development is found in
thc fact lhat during 1918 there were
a total of 19,364 farmers in thc province enrolled as patrons of creameries
cither directly or through cream buying stations.

Long.List of Martial Terms Originated  With  French
The   war has  added  many  French
words lo current English and American use, and thc number of them continues  a  process   that   goes  back  to
the Norman French,   The word "w
itself,  wrote  Dr.  Henry   Bradley,  in
his "Maying of English." i>  of Nor
man-French  origin,  aua  so  also   did
a long list of marlial-terms- originate
with thc   French,    come    over    into
England    and    become    Anglicized,!
among     them     "battle,"  ��� "assault,"
"siege,"   "standard,"    "banner,-"    "armor," "lance,"' "fortress" and "tower."
From France came originally the ler-
minology that identifies the separate
parts  of  a  British  army,  the "company,"  "battalion,"  "regiment,"  "brigade," division" and "corps," as well
as   thc   officers,  "general,"  "colonel," j
"major,"    "captain" and "lieutenant."!
France ,developed thc art, or, as wc
might now'say, lhc machinery of war
earlier    than    the    English, but it is
rather surprising to realize how many
centuries thc terminology has been in
use.'   Thc" words    passed    naturally

A good way to review the lessons
of thc six months' course .of study
iri the lives of Peter and John will
be to arrange them, under three
heads, as follows: I., Their Call; IT.,
Their Training; III., Their Service.
The first half of the studies, the part
we have now completed, has had to
do with the calling and_ training of
Peter and John. The last half,-the
lessons for the first quarter of 1920
will have to do with their service.
I. Their Call.
1. To be disciples (Lesson 1), John
1:29-42.
Before Christ trains for service he
calls to salvation.
2. To be fishers of men (Lesson 2),
Mark 1:14-20.
If would seem that after their conversion thc disciples had gone back
to lhcir trade of fishing. Those who
arc called by Christ unto salvation
should go back to thcir ordinary callings in li=fc, if thcy be honorable, until he definitely calls thcm info special  service.
II. Thcir Training.
1. Jesus in Peter's home (Lesson
3), Mark l:29-3!>.
Christ's entry into Peter's home
and the healing of his .wife's mother
showed to his disciples that he was ii
sympathizing  Savior.
2. A lesson in trust . (Lcson 4),
Alan. 14:22-33.
" The pressing and abiding need: of
the disciples in-thcir ministry was to
trust  the  Lord.
3. Peter's great confession (Lesson
6), Matt. 16:13-24.
Thc Lord had been revealing himself in various ways to thc disciples.
Hc now examined them to see what
they knew about himself. Peter, as
spokesman for the rest of the, disciples, confessed' both thc Messiah-
ship and. Deity of Christ.
4. "Witnesses of Christ's gloj-y
(Lesson 7), Luke 9:28-36.
The disciples were offended-at tho
revelation of the cross; tlicir hopes
wcrc shattered because "thcy could
not sec beyond thc cross. Thc transfiguration convinced them not only
of his essential glory,, but gave thcm
a for.eglcam of his triumph in the
coming kingdom ,(II.  Peter 1:16-18).
5. Jesus corrects John's narrowness (Lesson 8), Luke 9:46-56.
The disciples needed to know lhat
all who are really doing the Lord's
work casting out devils, and casting,
them out in Christ's name, should bc
received into fellowship , and bidden
Godspeed. Religious intolerance is
displeasing to Jesus.
6. Jesus leaches true greatness
(Lesson 9) John 13:1-16.
The truly great are thosc who take
the lowest place in service for others.
7r Peter and John asleep in Gcth-
scinanc (Lesson 10), Mark 14:32-42.
Though Christ was suffering the
awful agony in thc garden,^his disciples wcrc asleep. Because they did
not watch and pray, they failed in
thc hour of temptation.
8. At  the  trial  crucifixion  aud   resurrection of Jesus (Lesson 11), John
18:15-18;   19:25-27;   20:1-10;   21:15-19.
Peter's  presumptuous   self-confidence
kept    him    from heeding the Lord's
warning.    He played the coward and
even  indulged  in   oaths.     Note  lhe
steps  iu Peter's downfall;   (1)   Self-
confidence (Mark 14:29).    Jesus had
just told    them that    all    of    them
should_bc "offelided," but"  Pctcr"was"
determined to show thc Lord that hc
was mistaken in him.    (2)  Failure lo
watch  (Mark 14:37).    Self-confidence
is    always    followed by unwalchfulness.   One who thinks himself strong
will go lo sleep.    (3) Failure to pray
(Mark   14:38).    It   is   the   one   who
realizes   his      weakness   who   always
seeks    the    communion    of    God in
prayer.    (4)  Zeal without knowledge
(Mark 14:47).   Peter thought now to
make  up  for  his   lack  of watchfulness and    prayer by oulward    acts.
Many today arc equally foolish.    (5)
Following   afar   off    (Mark    14:54).
Christ's rebuke of Peter for his ignorant   2cal   cut   him   to   thc   quick.
Hc was  not   ready  to   forsake  him,
but followed afar off, no doubt \von-
dcring" what would bc  thc outcome,

Expenditure For
Saskatchewan Education
Progress of the Educational System
in the Rural Districts
Since the inception of the province
of Saskatchewan ;in 1905, no less than
-13,200,000 has been expended by the
provincial government for education,
according to astatcinent just made by
thc Hon. Charles Dunning, provincial
treasurer.    ..
During this period, Mr. Dunning
staled, public accounts~showed a total expenditure for education of $8,-
831,000. A further $4,369,000 represented thc proceeds of the supplementary
revenue tax used for thc advancement
of education.
The progress of thc educational
system in the rural districts in Western Canada is understood when it is
realized that the majority: of the monies raised through the various school
taxes and grants is expanded in the
establishment and maintenance ol
schools��� for,the education of.farmers'
children.

friends, who have als.o used thcm
with beneficial results." The Tablets
arc a mild but thorough laxative
which regulate thc stomach and bowels and thus prove of benefit in cases
of indigestion, 'constipation, colic,
colds, etc. They are . sold by medicine dealers,' or by mail at 25 cents a

(Continued.)
Left "alone, Ruggles summoned
Mustapha and asked for Miss Elliot.
She had gone to Stamboul, Mustapha
said, with thc dressmaker. Ruggles,
signifying to Mustapha that hc had
no' need of his services, took a stout
cane and went out to limp about the
terrace and breathe, the free air fanning down thc Straits from thc Black
Sea���that dread Euxinc of the ancients which has probably been thc
scene of morc marine disasters than
any body of water of its size in the
whole world.
It was quite a different Rugglcs
from thc one who had sat there some
weeks before beneath the polonia
tree reading the "Songs Before Sunrise" to the dying-Hamid Pasha. This
interview with the lawyer had given
him self-confidence, concrete proof as
it was that he ancl no other was master of the household. .
In the course of his painful promenade, -he passed the private garden,
but had no wish to enter there, as
thc spot was fraught with saddened
memories.. Skirting its edge, with no
particular objective, hc came presently to the head of thc linden-shaded
avenue that led to thc haremlik. Hc
paused and drew    his breath deeply.
"I wonder if anybody'd _ have the
nerve to try to stop me if I went
down here now," he said to himself.
The shaded bower tempted and
fascinated hiin. At the far end he
caught a glimpse of the latticed, rose-
covered kiosk, and as hc stood there
staring in its direction," there came
faintly to his cars, carried as thought
telephonically the length of the tun-'
ncled mossy corridor, a rippling,
gurgling laugh.
Ruggles's heart pounded at his ribs.
There, two hundred paces distant,
���were his youthful wards, happily amusing themselves in their pretty
bower. And here was he, their guardian and master, dreary and alone.
Why not make their acquaintance
now as well as later? Why moon
about the grounds, bored and solitary, when therc were four pretty
girls of whom he was the appointed
_pro_tectqr_dawn therei at the_ end_of
"the avenue? Certainly no form of
introduction was necessary to one in
his position.
He shook off the sudden shyness
which had seized him on .catching
"sight of thc kiosk. Rugglcs had. in
fact, lost much of his native diffidence within the last few months.Thc
parts which lie had(played, the sights
which hc had seen,' and the suffering
through which he had passed, had
hardened and matured hini. Was he,
a millionaire and stockholder in many
important companies, including _ the
great Walkeasy concern, to'bc frightened from visiting a portion of his
own inherited estate by a rippling
laugh from a girl of whose destiny
hc was thc chief arbiter? Who was
there to dictate to him? It was his
to act as best pleased him.
Still, hc hesitated/or an instant. Hc
glanced down at his costume, which
was of ��� snowy serge, delivered with
others only the day before by a tailor summoned from Peru. Perhaps he
ought to announce his visit. But
surely therc must be servants at thc
kiosk, and if the ladies were not ready
for his visit they could scamper to
their apartments and prepare themselves. At any rate, hc would walk
to thc end of the avenue and have a
look at thc place from a closer point
of view.
Supporting hitnscTr on his stick, he
turned down thc path. The sheltering trees were old aud gnarled and
moss-covered, their tops clipped
squarely just above the forking of thc
upper branches, and the sprouts so
heavv in foliage that not a ray of
sunlight was able to struggle through.
Almost at the end was an open space;
a diminutive but delicious garden filled with sunshine, and from which a
pergola led off to a sunken garden
of Italian design. As Ruggles drew
near, he saw. coming toward him from
this pergola the samc white-clad figure which had some weeks previous
barred his approach.

"I'd hale like anything to interfere

he. "But now that I'm here it sort

"I'm sorry, but I'm afraid that
you'll havc lo wait," 'replied Miss
Elliot, with decision.   -
Ruggles shook his head slowly.
"No," said hc, "it's too bad, but I
guess -you'll have to make the, best

here for half an hour' already^ an,d
I'm getting sort of tired. Now, sup-'

Miss Elliot's gray eyes turned almost black. "Then you persist in
coming in?"  shc  demanded.
"That's it," Rugglcs answered.
"Very well. Then tomorrow, Mr.
Ruggles, you can look around for another governess."
"Just as you like," Ruggles answered, with polite indifference.

ancl comings were concerned. - It

Sultan himself) that thcy veil their

Sarah smiled, but her intelligent
facc showed nol lhe?slightcst hint of
surprise or disapproval. On the contrary,  she looked  rather pleased.
"Yes, sir, thank yo'u, sir," said she.
"The young ladies would bc vcry
happy. If you do not mind waiting
a few minutes, sir. The young ladies arc just trying on thcir ncw
French gowns. Will you not rest
for a moment there on the bench
under thc pergola?" Her facc, which
must have been strikingly handsome
in youth, became suddenly solicitous.
"You must not tire yourself, sir."
As she spoke, "Rugglcs, who was
facing thc charming bungalow, " observed an agitation of the jalousies,
and his ear caught such a medley of
stifled chirpings and twitterings as
might comc from a nest of baby
birds. Sarah heard it also, but affected not lo. She conducted Ruggles,
who was expressing his willingness
to wait until the young ladies were
prepared to receive him, to thc bench
iii the shade of lhe vine-covered pergola.
"Hassan shall bring you some
cushions," said she. "You see, sir,
wc arc very busy preparing thc young
ladies for Paris. Somc of' their
things were all wrong, and Miss Elliot has returned herself with the cutter to make sure they understand. In
a very few minutes,  sir."
Rugglcs thanked her and limped
over to the bench._ Hassan overtook
him on thc way, his arms filled with
cushions,, which hc arranged quickly,
then withdrew. Ruggles seated himself and waited. He suspected that
Sarah might wish to tidy thc place
before asking him into thc house.
Half an hour passed and Ruggles's
nervous expectancy began to give
place to impatience. Had hc guessed that thc diplomatic duenna was
trying to delay the presentation until
Miss Elliot's return he would have
been more impatient still,   Sarah had

The Democratic Prince
Hereafter His is a Name to Conjure
With in Canada
After his long visit comprising thc
epic distances of the Dominion from
ocean to ocean, and the short visit to
bur neighbors and cousins below "the
boundary, thc Prince has sailed away
from Halifax for England again. In
the fancy of his comrades-in-arms
and of his father's loyal Canadian
subjects, there is a halo of romance
in that sailing as truly as though hc
were a prince of the' olden timc making the voyage in a wooden ship driven by Atlantic winds. For the Prince
captured the hearts and imaginations
wherever he went, and hereafter his
is a name lo conjure with in Canada
which he has prettily mentioned and
practically settled to be his home also.
How was it that the Prince suited
the Canadian people and the American, who were as enthusiastic hosts
as ourselves? Every man and woman
who cheered him were his hosts.
For onc thing he has that good gift
of loveableness and that fine faculty

suggest that thc master of the
household postpone his visit, but she
knew lhat Miss Elliot would be sorely vexed to find that Rugglcs had
been to thc haremlik in her absence.
The ruse proved entirely successful for as Ruggles was beginning to
fume and fret at thc delay he saw
the white-clad figure of the governess coming down the linden avenue,
followed by a woman carrying an
enormous-cardboard- box.��� Miss���Elliot did nol see Ruggles until she had
approached to within a few steps,
when she stopped and regarded him
with an expression on her flushed
face in which intense surprise was
mingled with strong  disapproval.
"Mercy!" said she, in her crisp but
low-pitched voice, "what are you doing here, Mr. Ruggles?"���No salaams
from Agnes Elliot.'
"I'm waiting to call on the young
ladies," Ruggles answered, rather
shortly. Hc had' already become
sufficiently accustomed to deference
that the curt, challenging tone annoyed him. "Il seemed to me about
time that wc got acquainted."
"But you can't comc in now," said
Miss Elliot. "It's nol convenient."
' "Oh, 1 guess if it's convenient for
mc, it'll havc lo be convenient for
the rest of you'" Ruggles answered,
not disagreeably, but with a note of
finality. Miss Elliot was a vcry nice,
capable young woman, but, after all,
she was merely thc paid governess,
and Ruggles had no idea of having thc
reins of authority snatched from his
hands.
Miss Elliot's gray eyes flashed, and
she repressed a strong inclination to
stamp her foot. The combative expression of her face would have put
to flight the Rugglcs of Paris, but
that shy and retiring individual was
gone forever. -    -
"I'must say I don't think it's very
considerate of you to try to make
your first call in my absence,"' said

Wireless Telephony
Can Now Be Practised from an Air-
.   ship up to a Distance of
165 Miles
Thc wonders of thc ncw wireless
telephony were demonstrated the
other day at thc houses of parliament
in London, when a number of people
wcrc able to converse with the observers of airplanes flying at a height
of several thousand feet and at distances of 10 to 20 miles. There was
also a conversation with a wireless
telephone station somc 20 miles away,
and gramophone tunes were transmitted ancl were vcry plainly audible.
Sometimes when the conditions
were particularly favorable the voice
reproduced at Westminster was ovcr-
powenngly loud. Onc of -the messages sent was an invitation to all
R.A.F. pilots within a radius of 20
miles to dine with General Seelcy,
and in thc pause that followed thc
two original recipients of the message could bc heard passing it on to
their fellow airmen. The invitation
was promptly accepted.
It was explained that wireless telephony can now bc practised from an
airship up to a distance of 165 miles
and from an airplane up to 100 miles.
Somc postal machines from England
to France arc now fitted with the
system, and it has proved of very
considerable advantage.
This demonstration was incidentally tlie occasion of a secret of the
war being disclosed. Wireless telephony was made possible early in 1915
and was experimented upon that year
by the Royal Flying Corps. By 1917
sufficient progress had been made for
���the system,-, to bc of practical usc. In
March, 1918, two squadrons on thc
western front wcrc fitted with wireless telephony, and thc fact became
known to the Germans. Thcy heard
English speech in thcir wireless receivers, ancl, not knowing lo what
uses thc new invention might be put,
from that time avoided our squadrons.
Unfortunately the retreat iu March,
1918, broke up thc organization, aud
by thc time of the armistice practically nothing more had been done.
But so far as is known nothing in
connection with wireless telephony
had' been developed by the Germans,
and-if is impossible to estimate the
advantage of our being so well ahead
of thc enemy.
In the course of the demonstration
il was shown how au airship or a big
airplane can determine ils position
from signals received from high-
power wireless stations up to 700
miles. A new telephone wi.s also exhibited, in which the transmitter,-instead of being hold to the mouth, is
pressed against thc neck of thc speaker and records the vibrations of thc
human tissues instead of those of the
air.^
The sequel to the abovc-nam*d invitations is interesting. Six officers
dined that night with the air minister,
General Seelcy, at the House of Commons. Il was explained that thc invitations were received and accepted
while the airplanes had been flying
round London within a radius of
about 30 mile-, at height-- up to 15,000
feet.

Attractive Winter Tours
During the summer months it is
impossible for many Western Canadians to take a vacation. However,
with the advent of winter, and harvest over, many arc planning a trip
for a few ���weeks, or popsibly to
spend thc winter in a warmer clime.
Some will go East to visit the old
folks ancl spend Christmas at home,
others may desire to"visit the Pacific Coast, where outdoor sports can
bc enjoyed thc ycar round, amid low
lying hills, silver and blue sea, and
lofty snow crowned mountains,
where flowers and shrubs, rare clsc-
where in America, thrive. This trip
can easily bc extended to California,
and a choice of a sea voyage, or train
journey via the wondrous Shasta
Route, is offered. This,' combined
with the 500 miles of scenic beauty
through thc Canadian Rockies, is unequalled anywhere  in   the  world,

and tiie croakings of frogs in a morass at 3,000 feet. At 3,225 feet a man's
voice and thc rolling of a cart can
be distinguished; at 4.550 feet the roll
of a drum, and the music of an orchestra; at '5,000, the crowing of a cock,
thesound of a church bell and sometimes the shouting of men aud women; at nine hundred feet higher still,
the report of a musket and thc barking of a dog. Thc noise of a railway

John Bull "Eats What He Can, and
Cans What He Can't"
Undoubtedly onc of the great results of thc World War has been the
conserving of food supplies. This is
especially so in Great Britain where
thc rations stipulated by the food controller were faithfully adhered to.
Even fruit is conserved by canning,
and no more will it be possible to
see barrels of fruil rotting in thc sun
at thc wayside stations on account o!
a too abundant supply. In fact, John
Bull, like the daughter of the California fruit grower, now "cats wliat'
hc can aud cans what hc can't.'' As
an indication of thc growth of the
canning business iu the British Isles -
one" comp"ahy7^vvhich- started in 190��
with an output of 500 cases, has now
reached 10,000 cases of fruit, cacK
case containing two dozen cans. Thc
great demand from the Far Eastern '
and South African markets is said to
bc due to the excellent quality of thc
fruit, to thc improved method of scaling the tins without soldering, and.
also to the fact that the interior is
protected with a hard lacquer which
resists corrosion by the acids and
thus preserves the original flavor.���

, at a Later Date
The Uritish army estimates, 1919*
1920, provide for thc ��� estimated expenditure of ��-505,000,000. These
figures-foreshadow an army strength
at the end of the fiscal ycar, March
31, 1920, of 300,000 British troops and
100,000 Indian troops.
These forces, however, will bc reduced  later.
When" estimate j wcrc made in
March, 1919, . an army of 2,600,000
men was provided for, of which
1,543,000 were in "process of demobilization, and since havc been released.

Attention is called to the advertisement of the Jungle Pictures to
be shown in the Greenwood
Theatre on Thursday, Jan. 29, by
Carveth Wells, the well known
Chautauqua entertainer and Jungle

Greenwood is fortunate in securing this noted explorer, whose pictures, made from his own photos
in the jungle, have been shown in
over 300 Canadian towns with
Chautauqua during the last 12
mouths.
Mrs. Carveth Wells, who for
over four years lived in the depths
of the jungle with her husband,
gracefully demonstrates the Malay
methods of < dressing, exhibiting
many gorgeous Oriental costumes.

How do you answer your telephone?   Do you say "Hello!"

you say "Hello,"   do you notice   how the  person calling will
then ask, "Is that Mr. Blank speaking?"
Why not extend the courtesy of announcing your name in
