Parents should teach their
children not to play on the streets
in town and by doing so accidents
can be prevented. Too many
children have the habit of running across the road in front of

car is travelling. Children should
be taught that there is danger iu
an auto, no matter how, careful
the driver is.

Mine Owners Get Busy
A   rare  opportunity   has   been
offered Greenwood by responsible
financiers to establish  a  concen-
trator and mill in this vicinity provided they can get the assurance
from mine owners of sufficient ore
to warrant them putting a concentrator here.   These financiers are
seeking the following information:
"What tonnage per day can you
guarantee a 100-ton  concentrator
if  same waB installed in Greenwood or immediate vicinity.    Give
name of property   together   with
assays or analysis of the ore.
Do yon know of any property or
properties of free milling gold ore
that could supply 50- tons per day
to a mill, if same was installed in
Greenwood or immediate vicinity.
Give name of property together
with any assays or analyses of the
ore. Your names and all data
supplied will be treated strictly
confidential. Box 301, Greenwood,
Pott Office."
This seems to be an exceptional
good opportunity. The cards are
laid face up on the table and it is
up to mine owners and citizens
generally to play the trump card
or forever after hold their peace.
No guarantee is asked, Bimply an
assurance that there is sufficient
ore in the vicinity to keep a concentrator busy. If the proposition
is bluff call the bluff. If genuine
go after it.

''Once a charming young woman
presented a small cheque at my

no acquaintance in the bank nor

handkerchief or some other article
of jewelry marked with her name
or initials. After a moment's
deep thought her face brightened

Importation Of German Goods
Tlie agitation of importers of German goods against thc provision proposed in his budget speech by Sir Henry Drayton, Minister of Finance, that
Canadian Customs shall disregard any depreciation in foreign currency
greater than 30 per cent., was commented on in a recent interview with the
Senior British Trade Commissioner, Capt. E. J. Edwards, of Montreal, with
the remark that the prevention of imports of German goods at ruination
prices appeared to be just thc aim in putting forward this provision. Thc
German goods being brought in are, moreover, largely goods "which are also
manufactured i:i Canada, such as drygoods, felts, silks, etc., not to mention
other things, such as cutlery, manufactured in the United Kingdom.    ,.
"In allied aud neutral countries thc belief is general that German banks
and other financial interests arc artificially depressing thcir rate of cx-
cliangc," said Capt. Edwards, "with the object of preventing imports into
their country, and assisting them to build up their export, trade again at
the expense of the allies."
"It is contended by these importers-that prevention of German imports
will increase the depreciation of the Canadian dollar, by forcing more purchases from the States. Fifteen months ago German imports only totalled
$2,502, but a year later, in February last, the figure-jumped to $522,757, For
the 11 months ending February, 1920, German imports (from Canadian
Government figures totalled ��29,64S, but for thc 11 months ending last
February they had made another enormous jump, to $1,395,380. Despite
thc jump, these-figures are still1 insignificant against Canadian trade with the
Mother Country or thc States, and I cannot see how Canadian currency
will lose in value because German goods are prevented from being dumped
at artificially low prices. Such goods as Canada must import can be obtained within the Empire to Canada's better financial advantage than from
the States. ' �����
"It seems to me it is a question of the Canadian public supporting their
ovy,n and British manufacturers against German ones," said Capt. Edwards,
"and I have no doubt as to their preference. Sir Henry Drayton
declared that to prevent financial ruin Canada must purchase more of
her own and British manufactures, a statement I thoroughly endorse, and I
am sure he did not think it any wiser to import German dumped.goods than
those of the United States. When Germany realizes thc impossibility of
exporting goods at sacrifice prices I believe shc will quickly straighten out
her financial methods, until her currency becomes normal and Canada, in
common with other countries, can trade with her on a fair basis."

Came From
War To End Officially
Setting of Date-Will Mean Much to
The date for thc official termination |
of the war, except as regards Turkey,
will bc September 1.
Under the "termination of the present Avar act" the war could not be-de-
clarcd officially ended for Great Britain until all thc peace -treaties had
been ratified, but it has been decided
that the treaty with Turkey might be
ignored. The last of tho other
treaties, that,with Hungary, was ratified in Paris recently.
The setting of thc date for the official end of the war will pave the
way for the settlement of financial
transactions outstanding between
thc Bank of England and the stock
exchange and will mean much to
certain lines of business.

Another Great
Medical Discovery
Eye Specialist Has Developed Serum
For Cases of Blindness.
What eye specialists agree may
prove to be one of the greatest medical discoveries in history soon will be
placed before the Acaderny of Medicine and the American Medical Association. A serum to restore the sight
in cases of blindness caused by atrophy 'of the optic nerve, heretofore regarded as an incurable condition, lias
been developed by Dr. Erasmus Arlington Pond, of 1093 Dean Street,
Brooklyn, an eye specialist of unquestioned standing in his profession.
There are said to be just two
limitations upon the effectiveness of
the serum. In the first place, it will
not change a condition of total blindness. Just so long as the patient is
able to discern, no matter how, dimly,
thc passing of a hand a few inches
before1 his, face,' even though it appears to him little more than a
shadow, there is time for the injection
of the serum. When total darkness
has closed down, thc scrum has no effect.
The second limitation is that thc
scrum cannot bc used in cases of
blindness caused by accident, in
which hemorrhage has resulted.- It
is said to havc worked successfully
only in cases caused by atrophy,
which is thc cause of practically all
blindness not due to accident. Nine
cases of this kind have been successfully treated by Dr. Pond, it was said.

Canada's Wonderful
Half Century
Nation  Has  Shown Great  Progress
Since Confederation .
As the age of nations is reckoned,
Canada is a mere infant compared
to the antiquity of thc war-born
states of Europe, for shc was only
fifty-four on July 1, but, say Canadian journals, Canada is "a prcco-:.
cious child of sturdy proportions
and husky growth, with all the promise of a splendid, vigorous manhood awaiting it." When a confed-
eratcd'Canada was formed into a Dominion in 1867, wc read in Agricultural and Industrial Progress in
Canada'(Montreal), it had a population of a-little more than 3,000,000;
while more than 9,000,000 inhabitants
arc expected 'to be listed in the census
of the present year. It is also remarked that, as is.true of all new
countries, immigration has been the
most potent factor in Canada's
growth. The rate of incomers, per
year in 1867 was" not 15,000, while
in 1920 it was nearly 150,000, and
1921 promises to show an . increase
above this number, even though the
Dominion-is applying the" sieve ' to
immigrants.- Tlie tide of the-land-

Call Of the Unknown
Shackleton Says Mainspring of Life is
��� X desire for<KnowledgeV 7 7 '
Sir, Ernest Shackleton, speaking' at
\, *"��<% p^r'y ^ven by Mr. and
Mrs b. E- Becker at Sutton Hall,
Hcston  said lt would havc been:8eca
from the T,mes that he was about to
lead another Polar expedition, which
had been rendered possible by the
generosity of two men. The first'
encouragement he received for the
expedition was from the host of that
afternoon, and_;he venture would go
forward largely as the rei'ult of Mf>
Becker's confidence in him. To a
great many -the. Polar / expedition
might seem futile,-but explorers-did
not go out primarily for economic
reasons. The total cost of Polar exploration in the last 10 years had
been ��2,000,000; the total economic
result had beeri ��25,000,000 by the
discovery of harbors\and whale oil,
and by magnetic and scientific re
suits. On the'human side it was a
desire to go into the unknown', to
see things .that no man had ever seen,.
and to go on.tintil all was known;
that had been the mainspring of life.
He hoped that whatever they brought
back from the coming expedition'
would be for the good of their Empire and for ��� the betterment of the,
world.���London Times. ���.

Use and Misuse of Lime and Results
From Detailed Experiments.
The use of lime in proper quantity, in proper-quality, and the proper^
-time will, prove beneficial to most
soils. Used otherwise, its effects are-
the reverse. .That there may be no
lack of knowledge on the subject/
there has been issued by the Department of Agriculture at Ottawa, a revised edition of a bulletin, entitled
"Lime in Agriculture," in which the
Dominion Chemist, Dr. F. T." Shutt,
has dealt comprehensively with the
subject. From this bulletin it is
learned that there are several classes
of lime, such as quick lime, - burnt
lime, caustic lime, stone lime, etc.,
also that limestone of excellent quality is to be found in many parts of
Canada, especially in the east and at
some points in British Columbia.
Some exists in Manitoba in the vicinity of Lakes Winnipeg and Winni-
pegosis. Otherwise there is none
available on the prairies. What is
known as lime kiln refuse,, is sometimes sold;as "Agricultural Lime," but
the advice is tendered that.purchases
should be. made only on analysis as
to the percentages of quick liinc, car-
bonite of lime, etc., present. Thc
chief objects of .the application of
lime, or carbonate of lime, are the
neutralization of sourness and the improvement of the mechanical condition of soils. The characteristic of
the soils that should, be "treated are
pointed out and the influence of lime
explained. The comparative values
of the different kinds are set forth
as well as thc methods of application.
Attention is given to thc use and misuse of lime and results from detailed
experiments. A table shows the
composition' of limestone found in
fourteen places in New Brunswick,
nine in Queb.ec, six in British Coluin-
bia, nine in Nova Scotia and ten in
Ontario. Prince Edward Island is
also shown to have deposits:
A Sure Sign That- The Blood Is
--Watery and Impure.
People with thin blood arc much
more subject to headaches than full-
blooded persons, arid the, form of
anaemia that afflicts growing girls is
almost always accompanied by headaches, together with disturbance of
the digestive organs.
Whenever you have constant or recurring headaches and pallor of the
face, they show that the'blood is'thin.
and your efforts should be directed
toward building "up your, blood. A
fair treatment with_ Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills will do ���this effectively, and
the rich, red blood made by these
pills will remove the headache.
More disturbances to the health are
caused by their blood than most people have any idea of. .' When your
blood is impoverished, the nerves suffer from lack of nourishment, and you
may be troubled with insomnia, neuritis, neuralgia or sciatica. Muscles
subject to strain are under-nourished
and j'oii may have muscular rheumatism or lumbago. If your blood is
thin and you begin to show symptoms
of any of these disorders, try building
up the blood with Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills, and as the blood is restored to
its,normal condition every symptom
of the trouble_will disappear. There
are more people who owe their present state of good health to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills than to any oilier
medicine, and most of them do not
hesitate to say. so.
Yo"u can get Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills through any dealer in medicine
or by mail at SO cents a box or six
boxes for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Mcdicin��j��.Co., Brockville, Ont.

Scotland's Census. -
Thc census gives Scotland a population of 5,882,157, being an increase
of only 120,000 over tjfe record of
1911.- The war was hard on Scotland's population, the number of men
taken, and not coming back, having
been large. Emigration also kept'
down the numbers. Some of thc
counties lost to swell -the population
of Glasgow and its neighbor cities, a
condition that is duplicated in other
countries, where the city draws from
thc country and the factory from thc
farm. It %yill be'well for the race

I. Paul  and Barnabas Preaching at
.   Iconium (vv.71-7).;
As To their work In Iconium observer ''"'������ -V ... ���
1. Their manner of preaching. This
is suggested by the little word "so" in
verse^l. ' They "so" spake that a
great-multitude believed. They were
true preachers. '; Only that which
brings conviction of sin and induces
decision for Christ can be truly said
to be.preaching in:the biblical sense.
The same is true of the Sunday school
teacher. Let; every Sunday school
teacher at all~times have; as his supreme aim to bear the gospel olf
Christ'so as to induce decision for
Christ. . j,  ���   ���
2. Their attitude toward opposition.
This is suggested by the word "therefore" in yerse.3.,'\"Long time therefore they tarried."' The opposition
did not prevent their preaching, but
incited them to continue preaching.
Christian workers should learn not to
give up work because of opposition. .
3. The Lord accompanied thcir
preaching with miracles (v. 3). Since
the -Opposition was so fierce, special
help of the Lord was needed.
4. The ^effect of their preaching (v.
4). The multitude of the city was
divided. Where men faithfully
preach thc gospel there will be division. '" ,
II. Attempt    to  Worship Paul and
Barnabas as" Gods (vv. 8-18).
1. . The occasion (vv. 8-10)���the
healing of thc lame man. God's
gracious power exhibited in healing
thc lame man-occasioned a new difficulty. That which ought to have
been a help'was turned into a hind-
rance.v The man was a confirmed
cripple. He had- never walked. He
heard Paul's preaching, which caused
faitli to bc born in his heart (Rom.
10:17). When Paul perceived that
he trusted Christ, he called with a
loud voice that all could hear for the
man to-stand upright. The cure was
instant, for he leaped up and walked
(v. 10).. There was no magnetic
touch, no treatment only the command, and the naturally impossible
became the possible and the real.
2. The'method (vv. 11-13). they
called Barnabas Jupiter and Paul Mercury, because he" was the chief speaker. The priest of Jupiter brought
oxen and garlands ready to offer sacrifices unto_those men (v 11). If
they had only -known, in thc person
of Jesus Christ God had actually appeared to men (John 1:14; Phil. 2:7,
3. Their efforts" frustrated (vv. 14-
18).' This foolish'act was happily
averted by the tact of the apostles, as
exhibited in the address of the occasion. (1) They deny that thcy are
divine things with like passion to
themselves is criminal. (2) They
direct them to turn away from these
vain things unto the living God who
made heaven and earth and has ever
left witness of Himself in that Hc has
always done good, giving rain and
fruitful seasons, filling their hearts
with gladness.
III. The Stoning of Paul (vv. 19-22).
Wicked   Jews   from   Antioch and
Iconium pursued Paul with relentless
hate to this place, where they stirred
up the' very people who were willing
to worship" them a little while ago.
This shows that satanic worship can
..soon be turned into satanic hate.
This hatred took form in stoning Paul
and dragging him out__of_the city_fo_r
dead. God raised him up, and with
undaunted courage he pressed on with
his duties as a missionary bearing the
good tidings to the lost.'
Soon after this Paul turned back
and revisited the places where he had
preached, telling them thatVhrough
great tribulation thcy must enter into
thc kingdom of God. "       .   V
IV. The Organization of Churches in
thc Field (vv. 23-28).     ^    -     '
Evangelization with Paul* did not
mean a hasty "and superficial preaching of the gospel but the establishment-of a permanent-work. Elders
were appointed, to every church.' .The
.work'- of the .missionary's not ��� done
until there, are established ori the field

Pens in History

years ago in London for $17. The

in writing his signature, writing his

also said that when a state paper
