later  he  disposed  of  his interest
and went to Sflulfc St. Marie where

ike House On *
Mercy Street
By Florence Kerig'an
Miss Angela set her finger on a
tingly little bell, and at once thc
throng of boys who were whooping
madly up and down the hall and in
and out of the rooms of the house on
Mercy Street, came together in thc
living room and settled down to listen
to the afternoon 'story.
Thcy just adored Miss Angela.
From the time she rented thc little
house and turned it into a clubhouse
for thc rough, tough dirty little boys
of thc neighborhood, they loved her.
Thcy exhibited her to their rough,
tough, dirty friends with pride, and
gradually became less rough, and less
tough, and washed thcir faces now
, and then. &
On that particular afternoon, when
the soft air blew in thc open window
and made her fair hair stand out from
her head like a misty, golden halo, and
shook lhe faint perfume out of the
bowl of lilacs on the table, shc announced that shc was going lo tell
them a story of knights and fair ladies
and the spring. She settled herself
in the seat of honor, and swept the
circle of faces with her brown eyes
which Abie Rabinowitz said were
"just like these here, now, pansy flowers, ain't they?"���brown eyes which
smiled at them all, from Abie io the
mysterious, well-dressed, perfect-mannered Jack who came in every day to
Then, very simply and dramatically,
she told the story of Sir Galahad and
thc Holy Grail, and all her hearers(
listened- spellbound. And when it
came to an end, thcy sat -silent tor a
moment-, then clamored for another^-.
Next," ��� she told- them a rollicking
Irish folk-talk,that made them laugh,
and followed .it with" others- until a
factory- whistle' told her it was five-
o'clock- and closing time for the" club-
-housc. -        - - '   "     ' "
They found their hats and trooped,
out, but-Miss Angela remained," and-
her.  shoulders   drooped with .'sudden
' sadness.- ' ���" ���"��� .   -   .
'That morning she had received .a'
letter, saying-that she would have to
leave the dear little house on Mercy'
Strccr, as the. landlord wanted it. for
one.of .his friends.' She had at once
called tip several influential men and
tried to interest:thenv in a campaign
for establishing a' community, club-,
house to carry on the work-���begun,'

to make it stand for and thc love of it
made her eloquent. Her enthusiasm
was infectious and at the end of an
hour he was making plans with her
for a. larger club that would broaden
into athletic activities. Shc shook
her head, sadly. ��
"We're not al! millionaires, Mr,
"Don't you understand? I want

a million dollars for thc way these

you think," wistfully, laying them before her, "that you could make a

Every detail of housekeeping should
be attacked from a health standpoint
It is well for thc woman to consider
this who becomes a little rebellious
as spring comes ou and wonders,
"Why all this fuss?" Thc care oi
the beds and the bedroom should bc
especially treated from this standpoint. For a while a dusty chair in
the living-room may be undesirable,
it is of far less consequence than cither a dirty dishcloth, or an unclean bed.
The ideal bedroom has at least two
windows and is flooded with sunlight
and sunshine on bright days. It is
large enough to contain a bed. Thc
ideal floor for a bedroom is unearpet-
ed save for, perhaps, a small rug in
front of .the bed or dressing table-

it should be waxed or oiled. The oiled floors of the hospital permit of frequent mopping with a little, disinfectant- and water.   " -

Great Increase In Agriculture
Stock Raising.
At Confederation in 1S67 there were
in Canada but 123 bank branches,
while in 1920 they had increased to
4,500. Canada's mileage in railways
increased from 2,288 when the provinces were united to 38,896 last year.
The 3,797 grain elevators in the centre
of the grain growing district were
totally unknown at Confederation
when there was not a single 'one in
the country. Canada's most phenomenal growth was in lier agriculture.
From a country where it was considered problematical whether it was
possible to grow wheat Canada has
consistently carried off the first honors of the American continent for ten
years. Cattle had increased from
2,624,290 in 1871 to 9,477,380 in the
past year, whilst thc quality of thc
animals bred has remarkably improved. Thc same is true of the horses,
as exemplified in an Alberta rancher
securing thc first Clydesdale honors at
the Chicago International Stock show
last year.

An Alliance With France
If Separated Britain and France Cannot Solve Problems in Europe.
Even if the reparations issue be.
satisfactorily settled, other questions
almost as menacing to the peace of
the wrorld, will come up, in a long-
stretched line, for consideration. What
about Central Europe and the ferment in Hungary? What about the
eternal unrest oT" the Balkans? What'
about the shadow of Russia and the
intrigues in Asia? Separated, Great
Britain and France can scarcely meet,
much less solve, these grave prob-,
lcms. But united in the bonds'of an.-'
alliance, they will prove a source of
strength which will attract to them
in time all the forces which make for
order .on- both .sides of thCAtlantic.
A Franco-British alliance means
peace, and nothing shows better the
sincerity of our^professional pacifists'
than the fact that they, are about the
only persons opposed to its conclusion.���From lhe London Morning

Join the Red Cross
Win a the Great War ended���yes, even before the joyful news of the
signing; of the Armistice���the statesmen and thoughtful men of all countries turned thcir attention to a consideration of the gigantic problem confronting civilization in the repair-ot thc awful damage inflicted on the world.
. It was not the material damage, so much that was the cause of deep concern, for, given time and money, destroyed cities,, towns, industrial establishments,' railways, mines and home buildings could be restored.
Tlie real problem were the people themselves. Willi millions of the
world's most able-bodied and virile young1 men killed, or maimed and weakened for. life; with millions of women hopeless nervous wrecks as a result
of the strain and hardships and sorrows through which thcy had passed;
with millions of babies and young children under-nourished during the'
most vital years when wholesome food and plenty of it should have been
forthcoming; and with thc mental view of everybody far from normal, in
many ways distorted, what, all thoughtful men and women asked themselves, of thc future of thc race, mentally, morally, physically? And if the
race is weak in these respects, what of the State itself, because, after all,
_ a nation is just what its people are. .It is not wealth, or great industries,
or large cities, or famous buildings that make a nation, but the people themselves-,      i
- The war had made vividly clear some things which a quarter of a century of peace might not havc revealed with so much imprcssivencss. The
war had given us a revelation, for it raii^ fittingly bc called a revelation, of
the relative wortli aiul ability of thc ordinary.man and woman. During
the war the ordinary soldier, seaman and airman stuck lo their duties and
did them with a courage and endurance which have never becn surpassed.
Thc spirit of the race had not decayed. But the war had revealed also the
shockingly poor physical condition of a great proportion of the men in .all
countries. In thc alleged progress oi civilization, in thc organization of
industries, in thc development of big business for creating and controllingr
wealth, regard for the intrinsic worth of human life���of men and women
in good health living and working under wholesome conditions���had been
to a large extent neglected.
Think of thc significance of these figures: During the last year of war,
the number oi men called up to the army in Great Britain was 2,425,184.
Out of every nine men, three were fit* and healthy, two were in infirm
hearth, three might bc described as physical wrecks, and one as a chronic
invalid with a precarious hold on life. Since that was thc physical condition of men at thcir most vigorous age, what would be thc condi-
'tion of health among the women and children? In other countries the
1 examination of thc men called to thc colors revealed conditions somewhat
similar. In Canada, with all her advantages of open spaces and outdoor
lives,-of the 362,(505 draftees under thc Military Service Act, 181,229, or
about one-half, were found to be unfit for full service in the field. Even
without war the races seemed to bc heading for physical deterioration and
As a result of these shocking and altogether alarming disclosures,

was inserted-which binds every nation joining thc League to encourage and
promote a national- Red Cross Society having as purposes "thc improvement of health, thc prevention of disease, and thc mitigation of suffering
throughout thc world." Thc Fed Cross was selected for this important
work because of its international character, its splendid organization, and
its wqndcrful lecord during the war.
It is thc pro found" conviction of those who are impressed with thc importance and possibilities of the ideals expressed in the Red Cross prd-
!_raramc as above outlined that their realization is possible through the endorsement and support which universal membership in the Red Cross alone
can give. Widespread and popular membership' in thc Red Cross is,
therefore, the necessary condition of success in its Peace-time programme.
To attain that universal membership, a world-wide enrolment campaign is being held this year. Thc dates in thc three Prairie Provinces of
Canada arc June 5~to 11. Membership in the Red Cross- involves an annual fee of one dollar for adults, and of twenty-live cents for boys and girls
under 18 years, of age, but this is thc only���and incidental���financial aspect
of thc membership enrolment campaign.
It is thc intelligent interest, the active sympathy, the whole-hearted
support of all people in a nation-wide, yes, world-wide, Crusade .or Good
Health that thc Red Cross desires, and lo assure this it asks every man,
woman and child to join thc Red Cross during the week of "Juno-5 to 11.
Fojlowing ail previous wars, thc Red Cross with its work for the
time being completed, fell into a slate of disorganisation. When the war
drums sounded in 1914, thc Red Cross had to undertake all the work of
homc organization before it could begin its work for the soldiers in thc
field. Now, however, while 'carrying on its great Peace-time programme
for the welfare and betterment of all mankind, it will bc maintained fully
organized, efficient and ready to act should Canada ever again bc called to
Thc Red Cross demonstrated that it was worthy of support during thc
war. Having now highly resolved to dedicate itself to thc task of carrying out the obligations imposed upon it in the Covenant of the League of
Nations, it can bc trusted to faithfully endeavor to render real Peace-time
service to Canada and its people.     Therefore���Join thc Red Cross.

Fire Protection in Finland
Government Compels Every Building
To Have a Ladder.
Finland takes more precautions
than any other nation to protect itself against fire. Indeed, it is a nation oi fire-escapes, for by government enactment it is compulsory for
any building or dwelling to be provided witli means by which thc occupants
can escape in the event of an outbreak
of lire. Ladder-making for domestic
use is one of the country's most profitable- industries. From the most
palatial to ihe lowliest every homc in
the country must have its ladder reposing against the wall on thc outside
or lying along the ground within easy
reach. \
The government regulation, .which
makes it obligatory upon the owners
of every building to provide it with a
ladder, is an old one, and is an echo

Why Rain Melts Roeks
Due to Carbonic and Nitric Acid In
When we sec great boulders of
hard rock such as granite, it seems'almost incredible that rain has thc power of .inciting them.'
In rain there arc two things in addition to water which assist this wonderful process. These are nitric acid
and carbonic acid, and these arc formed in thc rain when the oxygen and
nitrogen become charged with 'electricity as so often happens during
Of these two acids that.slowly eat
their way into thc rocks, perhaps carbonic is the more important.
By its action it gradually melts thc
hard g'ranite upon which the rain falls
���and so transforms it, first into sandstone and afterwards into sand.
Of course this process is a very
slow one, but it goes on with a wonderful  certainty. ^
These two acids in rain are even
more important in their relation to
life, for carbonic and nitric acids form
part of the food upon which all plants

Give the Children a Chance
Why is it, it is often asked, that people in small towns
can find no better business than prying into other people's
business, and then exaggerating the truth in regard to the
same. People who pretend to be Christians,' who attend
.church regularly, who in the sight of their neighbors are
generous and charitable. 3'et who, without the slightest
provocation, pick up some little mistake, or more often,..at
nothing, will so scandalize one as to ruin his or her reputation for life. While they would not steal from them,
world goods, yet they rob him or her of what is more
precious than gold���a good reputation, . Why can't people
practise the Christianity that they preach and '.'Do unto
others as you would have them do unto youV'^Tf a brother
falls, don't jump on to him because he is down, and because you do not intend to extend a hand, do not, like a
(log in the manger, stand in the way of others.
A mortgage is a strange institution. It makes a man
rustle, and it keeps him poor. It is a strong incentive to
action, aud a wholesome reminder of the fleeting mouths
and years, A mortgage represents industry, because it is
never idle and never rests. It is like a bosom friend because the greater the adversity the closer it sticks to a
fellow. It is like a soldier, it never hesitates in charsrine-.
nor fears to clo��e on an enemy. It is like the sand-bag of
a thug, silent in its application, but deadly in its effect.
Like the very hand" of providence, is spread over'all creation, and its influence is everywhere visable. It is like the
grasp of the devilfish, the longer it holds the greater its
strength. -It will exercise feeling, energy and lend activity
to the sluggish brain. No matter how hard the debtor
works, the mortgage works harder still, It makes a fellow
sour,, cross, selfish, unsociable and miserable, and rarely
does him any good to exercise him.
