him and he thought he would
phone his wife and get her to come
down and meet him and have dinner with him.   So he called her up.
���'Hello, kid," he began. "Say,
slip on some old clothes and run
down and meet me on the quiet.
We'll have a good dinner and then
we will get a machine and go out
and smear a little red paint around.
How about it?"
"I'll be delighted to join you,

not come up feo the house and get
me?   There's nobody home!"

Agricultural Schools
In  Alberta
Provincial Government to Keep
Abreast of Requirements
The "erection of three new agricultural schools in Alberta is to begin
at once. The new schools are all located at points in the southern part
of the province. One will be at Raymond, southwest of Lethbridge, another at Gleichen,-about 60 miles east
of Calgary, on the C.P.R. line, and
another at Youngstown, on the C.N.
R. line east of Calgary. Tenders have
been awarded for this work, and.it is
hoped to have the schools ready for
opening  this  fall.
When these three schools are completed, Alberta will have six up-to-
date aud practical agricultural schools.
At these schools a practical course is
given to fanners' sons and daughters
in the work necessary to the farm,

These noble and inspiring words
arc just what was lo be expected from
thc leader of that brave aud gallant
body of men who fought for and saved Canada when everything that our
people hold dear was threatened and
in danger of being lost to us. Thousands of their comrades gave their
lives for thc great dream of a finer,
better Canada in the future; other
thousands will go through life maimed
and carrying wounds; aud all made
sacrifices and suffered to a degree
that no one except those who went
through thc awful inferno of thc war
can understand. These men are determined lhal their losses, sufferings
and sacrifices shall not havc been
made in vain.
Canada's returned soldiers arc the
nation's greatest asset, and for inany
ycars lo come their influence will bc
one of the determining sactors in
shaping national policy and establishing our national ideals, lt is well that
those ideals should be high and altogether   worthy.
But what of tlio^c other thousands
of Canadians who did not experience
the comradeship of the trenches, nor
place their bodies in the path ot a
ruthless and arrogant foe? They,
too, must bc animated by the same
grim determination to make Canada

Co-operative action by thc Dominion aud provincial governments to

at this session, however. ,

Contrasting Stuffs Make a Hat
Twice Smart
THERE is simply no ' disputing
the pre-eminence of the fabric
hat this season. It is the boast
of the ultia-smart woman that
she hasn't a straw lo her head this
summer. Judging from the attiactive -
way that she is doing- without .straw,
the stuff will have to do something-
more than ordinarily startling to-'wln
her favor again.
All of which Is rather nice for the
home milliner. ,There are so many
more possibilities to a bil of silk than
there is to a piece of straw - braid.
There i.s altogether delightful possibility pictured. It is one of those nico
crushable, floppy things that can do
garden party duty as well as shop-
. ping_dnty, for-Instance,-Much,- tho,���
will depend upon the stuff that you
make it of.
For thc very convenient all-round
wear, try a navy taffeta and purple
organdie. Trovlde *yotnself witli a
buckram brim of becoming dimensions,
then bend it to the floppiness that is
most flattering to your type. Cover it
taut with the taffeta, face with the
organdie erqss-tucked, and iinally bow
with  the same thing.
Chiffon and felt" make a combination that Is just bound to give chic
results, particularly a jade ielt and a
l>each-colored chiffon. And quite the
nicest thing about this plan is the -
minimum of labor that it requires.
Surely you won't have difficulty finding the felt shape, ana arter that it
is a very easy matter io subtract
the crown, fill in the void with the
chiffon,- and have the lacing and the
bow of  the same.

and Accessories
Will You Have It of Taffeta and Organdie or Chiffon and Felt?
Fancy, will you, going to a bip,
perfectly formal dinner tn a

difference in the world when it's a

that these dinner blouses go atop of-
georselte or chiffon or pntln skirts,
and even if they aro real blouses, they
don't give that impression one bit. As

everything that we wear now but onr

What is, in a few woids, the economic  strength  of  Rumania,   the  gallant    little kingdom Avhich    was our
staunch   ally   :n    the    war,   and    to
which Canada has vnow granted a credit of $25,000,000''      Rumania before
the    war    contained   600,000    square
miles, with a total population practically equal to that of Canada.    With
the additions    made    by    the    peace
treaty, Rumania   will probably   have
from fifteen to eighteen million people.   Mineral resources   aie    important, though only paitly worked.   The
principal are  rock" salt,  lignite     and
copper.    The Rumanian oil fields    in
1910 gave 1,344,000 tons of exude. The
private  capital  invested in -home industries was about $100,000,000.  Official  statistics   cover  52  principal industries.
Farm produce is an important pait
of the nation's wealth. In 1912 the
acreage for the main cereals was:
Wheat, 5,100,000, barley, 1,230,000;
maue, 5,130,000, oats, 943,000. There
weic 183,000 acres undci cultivation as
vineyards,'-.with a production of 37,-
700,000 gallons of wine. Tlie forests
include loughly 7,000,000 acres of
pine, oak, larch, maple, birch, elm,
willow and walnut trees
Live stock consisted of horses,
824,000, cattle, 2,660,000; sheep, 5,-
260,000, hogs, 1,000,000, besides goats,
mules and asses Ihere is valuable

St. John's, Nfld ��� Details of the in*
roads made by influenza among inhabitants of Esquimaux settlements in
Labiador last winter, and the difficulty of disposing of the dead, are furnished in reports from nortnern missionaries received by the colonial secretary. They tell a story of-depopu-
lation referred to as "another step
nearei the end of Labrador Esquimaux," and of terrible conditions in thc
wake of the plague.
Bishop Martin, of the Moravian
missions, writing from Heb'eron, said
that all of the 100 Esquimaux m that
settlement became ill, and in a week
86 died, leaving only eight children,
five women and one man. ~>
"In thc mission house," he continued, "we all havc been sick, too, but
not so severely as the Esquimaux. At
the beginning of the epidemic, the
bodies were put in to our small dead
bouse, but that was soon filled up,
and as thcic was nobody strong enough to remove thc dead from the ��
bouses, most of thc Esquimaux hutf
were filled with bodies. The fourtce*
survivors found refuge together in out
"For five or six weeks we were
unable to do anything in regard to
the bodies, we were so few, and too
weak to do any hard work. Our situation was awful Some men who
survived came from Saeglek to help
unclean the houses and the station.

huts died, fcogs broke into the huts
and ate some of the bodies. When
they^had done so, they got very vicious arid dangerous We killed the

France Asks For
Equality For Jews

Consideration for Jewish
Paris.���M. Pichon, the French foreign minister, replying lo a communication from thc chamber of deputies asking information as to the attitude of France in thc peace conference will) regard to thc Jews of Poland,   Rumania and   other   countries,
declared that from  the  beginning of
the conference    the French    government endeavored to secure thorough
consideration for the Jewish question
and had a-��kcd that conditions of absolute   equality  be   granted Jews   in
ncw or enlarged statcs.
These efforts, hc said, resulted in
thc treaty already signed by Poland,
guaranteeing complete liberty and
equality to Jews in political and religious matters. M. Pichon's communication,   in   closing,   eulogizes      the

It is done today through land'settlement bills.    In Roman "days, your

But thc habit has remained of turning the fighter into a farmer and his
sword    metaphorically    into a plowshare.   There is probably not a community among    the English-speaking
allies which  has  not made extensive

the company, and hc felt that he had
a certain claim to advancement, not
only on account of his own faithfulness and devotion, but because of his
father's efforts in its behalf. As a
matter of fact, Rugglcs, senior's, inventions had been of far greater commercial profit to the company than
even thc inventor had ever dreamed.
A man of any business sense would
have resigned his salaried position
and found some-means of producing
his machines for the benefit of his
own interests, requiring either the
Walkeasy. or some-other shoe manufacturers to pay well for thc products
of his brain. Had hc done so he
might have.got very rich and Rugglcs, junior, might have been touring
Europe in a high-powered car with no
other aim or ambition than to have a
thoroughly good timc. Which proves
that liis situation ivas better for his
parent's lack of initiative in a commercial sense.
The   morning   following   Ruggles's
Filling His
Own Shoes

arrangement .with Thos. Allen,
It had never occurred lo him that
there might bc a double reason for
this, one being thc wholesomencss of
his open, boyish face, and thc other
thc fact that thcy regarded him and
his shoehorn in precisely thc same
impersonal light. No doubt thcy also
felt instinctively that lie would bc
every bit as nice if, after taking down
a dozen boxes from the shelves and
' having made several pilgrimages to
thc reserve stock in the cellar, they
might come to decide that their needs
could not bc satisfactorily supplied.
So far as his immediate forbears
were concerned, Rugglcs had really
no legitimate quarrel with his place
in the world. His father had made
shoes, or parts of shoes, all his life,
for many ycars as an operative in a
manufacturing concern from vvhich
thc Walkeasy had partially sprung. It
was there that hc met Ruggles's mother, a prttty Irish girl and also one
of the factory force. Ruggles, senior,
had been with thc Walkeasy Company
as foreman ever since its incorporation, and being of an inventive mind,
hc had evolved some highly valuable
machines for stretching and stitching
calfskin. Any one of thc elder Ruggles's inventions, if properly handled,
might havc brought him a small fortune. As it was, thcy had bc_cn appropriated by thc company, whicli in
compensation had slightly increased
his salary, but had paid him no royal-
tics. Unfortunately, Rugglcs, while
a clever inventor, had been a poor
business man, and when he had died
suddenly of pneumonia, it had been
found that his savings were all invested in worthless paper. Rugglcs, junior's, mother had died when he was
1 w elvc years old.
So Ruggles, junior, had been left
penniless on finishing school, and, following hereditary instinct, had 'gone

' initially in charge of the. shop.   There
were others  who had been longer in

j wilh the company.     In a general way
; lhc    organization    of   the    Walkeasy
1 Shoe    Company was    based on    thc
i principles of a military service, which,
however, did not prevent a more effi-
jeient employee from being promoted
| over thc heads of his less capable se-
��� niors ��� which same may be said to
j hold  true of any  service,  whether it
j be    military,    commercial, or   of any
other sort, and nobody can deny   thc
justice thereof.
It was thc slack hour, and Ruggles
vvas looking out upon thc traffic flowing up and down the boulevard when
a big, heavy limousine of American
make drew silently up to thc curb,
and from it there descended a handsome,young giant with a fresh skin
and the hall-mark of his nationality
stamped most legibly upon him. Rugglcs had a good look at him as he
stepped down from the car, and his
vigorous young heart went oft wilh a
whirr of a motor when thc clutch is
suddenly released with llie gas turned
on full. Hc recognized that strong,
good-humored face with its heavy
forehead, high-bridged nose, masterful
jaw, and dark, decp-set eyes. .At a
single glance, it proclaimed thc young
man as Richard P. Downing, Jr., the
illustrious son of an illustrious father,
vvhich latter vvas none other than thc
president and principal stockholder of
the Walkeasy Shoe Company of
Rugglcs had no need to look again
at that strong, rugged young-old face.
In his honest heart, Ruggles was a
good deal of a hcro-worshippcr, and
the Downings, father and son, were
his most favored idols. He had followed with the keenest interest thc
career'of Dick Downing at Yale, rejoicing at his numerous successes ���
which it must bc admitted had been
rather athletic and social than intellectual���and condoning his few failures as due to a lack of proper support
on the part of those whom hc had
striven so hard to lead to victory.
Dick had captained thc football team,
stroked the crew, and won other athletic victories as opportunity offered,
for his had been thc good old days
when trainers' jealousies had not been
allowed to interfere with thc athletic
glory of Yale.
This brilliant epoch at an end, Dick
had buckled down to work like a
sturdy colt which, aftci having kicked
thc door, an even greater shock was
in store for Rugglcs. Dick, having descended, turned and held out his hand
to assist a lady to alight, and as Rugglcs stared, fascinated, hc saw that
this transcendent vision of loveliness
was the pulsating original of the portraits tacked about the walls of his
little Passy abode. It was actually
Ruth Downing, the only daughter of
Richard P. Downing and thc sister of
Dick. Ruggles had a sensation as of
a great many small white mice scrambling up his spine.
But in spite of this Olympian invasion, hc did not lose his head. Everything was in order for the visitation
of the heaven-born, anel Ruggles vvas
conscious of a soul-searching exultation that thc honors of the reception
were to devolve upon him and not
upon .Durand. The much bebuttoncd
boy whose duty it was to tend the
door had scampered off to lunch, so
Ruggles-opened the doors and waited.
The two Olympians diel not immediately enter. They paused to examine thc display of samples ih the window, and,.-so far as Ruggles could ascertain, seemed pleased with the exposition.
"Very latest models," hc heard Dick-
say, as he bent his Jovian brows on
the display. "Good a show as I've
seen in any of our shops, al home or
over here."
Then tlicy came in, those shining
ones, and it seemed to Rugglcs that
thcy shed a glow. Perhaps thcy did,
for it would havc been hard to find
their like in a search through many
cities; the young man strong, dominant, and kindly, with the features and
body of a youthful Vulcan; the girl
sweet and thoughtful of face, with
very dark, examining blue eyes, a
Grecian nose, the classic purity of
which was madc seductive by the suggestion of an upward tilt, a full-lipped,
mirthful mouth, set not precisely in
the horizontal line, and a chin like her
brother's, though without thc cleft���
or, at least, with no more than a suspicion of it.

Five Hundred Years Ago
New Europe  Strangely Like a Very
Old Europe
What is happening now with regard
lo the parcelling out, of tl.e countries
in Europe into new racial divisions is
very much like what it was 500 ycars
ago. According to Sir Sidney Low,
ncw Europe was strangely like a very
old Europe. Five centuries ago;-there'
was then a united and - independent
Poland, including West Prussia and
reaching as far as thc Baltic. There
was a kingdom of Bohemia embracing
the Czccho-SIovak countries, a kingdom of Hungary, a Ukrainia," or Ru-
thenia divided off from Muscovite
Russia, a separate Courland and Esthonia, a greater Serbia or Jugoslavia, a Greek kingdom - occupying
thc rest of lhc Balkan lands, except
thc Dalmatian coasts and islands,
which wcrc under an Italian republic.
Then timc worked its slow,but drastic changes. Most of these minor
stales were stvallovvcd up in the four
great imperial aggregates, Austria,
Russia, .Turkey and Prussian Germany. The war leaves thc empires
broken so that the map oi the 20th
century will show the medieval kingdoms and republics revived, and will
strikingly resemble one vvhich might
havc been drawn in the fifteenth.

Mme. Melba Tells an Amusing Story
Concerning a Young Married
Mine. Melba, who sang at thc

It concerned ' a young married

thcy hatl expectations, and who incidentally was fond of music.
Aunty came on a visit to the nevv-

and.witcy told her lhat hubby had
just -recently made a record of* her
favorite violin solo on thcir gramophone.
The old lady was quile pleased,
and naturally wauled to hear it.
"Well," said thc young wife, "as a
matter of fact, wc haven't tried it
ourselves yet. but I'll put it on."
Shc accordingly did so, and the record proved a great success, but unfortunately just aftcr thc solo was
finished, with fatal clearness from
thc instrument came thc following:
"Phew! If that isn't good ior an
extra few hundreds in thc old girl's
will, I'm a Dutchman!"

is the fact that there are so many

Fires Caused By Lightning
Warning . of    Approaching    Electric
Storms By High Wires
How' to prevent loss from forest
fires started from lightning is thc problem being worked out by the Forest Service of Oregon, U.S.A. In the
last twelve years, there has ,becn a
loss, of $5,000,000 in Oregon and
Washington from forest fires, of
which 45 per cent, were of lightning
origin. Sixty- pcr cent, ol" lhc loss
was caused by lightning fires. In
New Mexico 65 per cent, of the fires
are of lighting origin, while 35 per
cent, of tn��s trees are killed by direct
hits before they reach maturity. One
of the methods proposed is to secure
warning of approaching electric
storms by high wires and other apparatus. On the first warning, patrol
men can be got lcady lo fight the
expected fires.
It is usually safe to say that when
a child is pale, sickly, peevish and
restless, thc cause is worms. These
parasites range thc stomach and intestines, causing serious disorders of
thc digestion and preventing the infant from deriving sustenance from
food. Miller's Worm Powders, by
destroying the worms, corrects these
faults, of the digestion and serves to
lestorc tlie oigans lo healthy action.

Government Will Merely Restrict
Speculation on Wheat Mart
Ottawa.���Hon: A, K. Maclean, acting minister of trade and commerce,
being asked in the House if the Grain
Exchange vvould bc permitted shortly
to engage in wheat transaction, said:
"At present it was not the intention of the government to prohibit or
contiol trading in wheat in the cereal
year 1919-20 on thc grain exchanges
in Canada. If the grain exchanges
deal in wheat, it is to be expected,
owing to the fact that this grain is
not traded in upon the leading grain
exchanges of thc world, that regulations will bc madc ^operative so as to
restrict purely speculative transactions."
Mr. Maclean   being   further   asked
as to thc probable disposition of this
year's    wheat crop, stated    that  tIt-
question was much complicated hy ilie
delay in  thc  United  Kingdom     :i��.d
allied European connU ics    iu    determining   whether thty arc   to   permit
open     markets -for  the    futi.ie,    or
whether contiol would bc further continued.   Thc exchange conditions, thc
American fixed price for wheat, shipping thc probable exportable surplus
of wheat-producing countries, and the
general and world-wide financial and
economic conditions are all very im-
poitant and uncertain factors complicating the1 situation, and it  was  too
early ycl to determine with exactness
their inlluence in  estimating markets
and prices for Canadian wheat of the
coming  crop     This   uncertainly was
applicable    to    all    wheat-producing
countries.    Thc  government  realized
the    importance    to Canada of    the
question of markets, 'particularly for
Canadian surplus wheat, and was doing everything    possible to ensure a
fair shaie of the world's markets.
"Conceivably," he said, "the future
might develop conditions in Canada
necessitating diiect and positive action, but in thc meanwhile il is the
view of'the government that the open
market should prevail."

Because 90 fo of his patients are
suffering from ailments caused directly or indirectly by the action of
poisons formed in a sluggish intestinal tract.
These body poisons are absorbed by

body until the weakest organ,vunabie_
to withstand the poisonous contact,
becomes infected and refuses to act
properly. Unfortunately it is usually
not until then that the��doctor i��5 consulted arid asked to treat the diseased

"Divers weights and divers measures both of them are alike abom-"

20; 10.
Thinking men and women will
do well to consider the striking
arguments brought oufe by. the
World Trade Club of San Francisco in their campaign for adoption
of the units of the metric system of
weights and measures'.
They show a striking anomaly;
That the metric system was inven-
by a Briton, Jfttnes Watt, in 1783,
and yet all civilized nations have
adopted it exclusively} excepting
the United States and Britannia,
including Canada.
That the BO-called "British system" of weights and measures ia of
German oiigiri���a relic of the old
German Hanseatic trade league���
and yet Germany scrapt it in 1871
and adopted the metric system invented by a Briton.
People of Britannia and America
may well ask themselves whether,
they are not carrying conservatism
too far.
The Metric System is no untried
It3 principle���the principle of
decimal compunction-has been used
in the monetary system of the United States since 1786. If the United States had heeded Thomas
Jefferson, they should also have
adopted this system of weights and
measures based on decimals���so
simple a system that a child can
learn its main features in ten minutes. The Dominion of Canada
now uses decimal coinage. We
know how well the decimal system
works with money. It will
work equally well with weights and
