'J'he very inaguiiude of the task, and the large numbers of people engaged, cull for the taking of precautious against accidents. "Safety First" should
be (he iiiollo of all. Ai< a writer in the American Red Cross Courier says,
tliere Is no argument against safety. No one ever heard of safety filling hospitals or graves, or destroying property, or resulting in loss of any kind. It
i.s the failure to exercise due cauliu*. that causes these di.-aslers.
Not it year passes bul. _.lu*>: annual Western harvest lakes ils toll of life,
cf others crippled and miiimed for life, of property destroyed. The practice
of ''Safety First" will prevent most ol these calamities.
.Millions of acres of ripened grains and grasses present untold possibilities of loss if every care is not exorcised to prevent fires from starting. Once
���started there ls no telling to wh:<t awful dimensions they may spread, resulting in loss not only of crops but o." homes and other possessions and possibly
life itself. It may require a little extra time and labor to take proper precautions?, but it i.s the cheapest possible form of insurance.-
l.itidois, mowers, threshing machine outilts are powerful agents not only
for harvest operations, bul for cutting off arms and legs if care is not exercised to keep out of the way of such moving machinery. Wherever possible
cogwheels, moving belts, knives ami gears should be protected, not that they
need protection, but because lhe workers need to, be protected front thorn. It
should be borne in mind by ihe employing farmer that many of his harvest
help may have had no previous experience about, or in i.he handling of machinery. -
The..straight-thinking man respects sii'feiy; he knows its real value. Down
through the ages this has been revealed over and over again. It is ihe fool
who rushes in.-where angels* fear tc tread, who forges ahead regardless of
consequences to himself or his fellowmen. Speed Is all right in its place,
but its place'is not iu attempting a level crossing in front of au approaching'
express train.     Nor is ii in -saving the time necessary to plough a fireguard.
The .('twiner wlio at groat labor and expense ploughed his'Acids, sowed

insured it against hail, and provided the machinery and help.[o harvest it, wiil

Overcharging Tourist
Six dollars is too much for any
guide to charge for taking tourists
through Sans Soucl Castle and other
sights of Potsdam, in the opinion ot
the court of appeals. Guides for tourists are not a luxury, as held by the
lower court whose decision was reversed, but a daily ^necessity, and
therefore cannot command fancy
Tho case arose otit of a difference
some mouths ago between a party of
Englishmen and a Potsdam guide
named Max, Schulz. The guide had
charged 25 marks for taklug thc party
around, whereupon tho Englishmen
appealed to the courts. The lower,
court believed that anybody who can
afford a guide is rich enough to pay
whatever the guide may charge. The
state's alio*, ney held, however, that
Germany, and especially Potsdam,
have ever,' reason to encourage the
travelling public, and that' overcharges liko these wero calculated to
make people shun Potsdam, thereby
ruining its tourist'business. r
Tho higher court agreed with the
state's attorney, reversed the decision
and assessed a fine of 20 marks.

Lesson: Acts 16.6-15.
Devotional Reading: Isaiah'6.1-8.
The Text Explained and Illumined
Frustrated purposes, verses 6;8.���
Paul and Silas and Timothy went
through the region of Phrygia and
Galatia, thus carrying out their..intention of. visiting the churches whicli
Paul had' founded on his first missionary journey. They planned to go on
into the province of Asia on 4he
/Egeah Sea. It seemed a most
promising field. Here were Ephesus
and Smyrna and Laodicea and other
teeming cities���great centres of idolatrous worship. Surely they had
planned wisely in seeking to win
these groat centres for Christ. But
their plan was frustrated. Without
noto or comment Luke adds these arresting words: "T-hey are forbidden
by the- Holy Spirit." ."Wherefore
they were, forbidden he does not say,"
Chrj'satom observes, "but that they
were forbidden he does say���teaching us to ob-3y and not ask questions."
By a vision or by an inward impression, they wore convinced that this
was not God's purpose for them.

Popular Feature Of
Empire Exhibition
One Visitor In Every Ten Patronizes
Motor Boats
Tho motor boats on the lake at
���\Yembley ar ��� one of the most popular
features of the exhibition; one visitor
in every ten ialronizcs them. Many
people say a trip on the lake is the
next best thing to the seaside; there
is certainly a "blue-water" touch about
both the boais and the coxswains.

Ancients   Worshipped  Meteors
Syrians Thought Stone. Was Messen-
- ger From  Sun God
"Star sto ies,' or meteors, have fallen in many lands. In ancieut Syria
a great black stone, reported to .have
fallen from the sky, was" worshipped
as a messenger from the sun god.
Back in the old days a shower of
stones fell on tho Alban* Mount near
Home. These wore incorporated in a
te'mple'and7','ere" looked upon with
awe. .'��� V * ��� ',     '   ���
' * ��
One of the queerest .falls on record
occurred in Normandy. .-Here, within an elliptical area seven niiles. long
and three miles wide, nearly three
thousand stones fell. These varied
in' size, the largest masses weighing
about soventc-en pounds. Nearly all
the inhabitants of a large district saw
the cloud, heard the noises and witnessed the rain of stones. 7
The largest meteorites-'known are
the immens.; masses found up in Nor-,
them Greenland. One of these great
black Iron "clones, weighing thirty-
seven and a half- tons, .has been
brought from the ice counlry to New
York City and pu,t on display in the
Museum of Natural History,,and may
be scon by visitors. ...j~S.
The chief .constituent, of these so-
,called "stones" is nickel iron. In
some countries the natives have conquered their superstitious awe of the
"stones hurled'from heaven" and have
hammered off pieces of these" aerial
travellers into primitive knives and
spear points. ,   ���'

Coffee In Different Countries
In the art of coffee-making tliere
are no standards: each country has its
own ideas on the subject. The French
like their coffee black, strong and hot.
In Turkey the Mohammedan bolls his
coffee over a charcoal fire in a small
brass kettle; each cun is made fresh
and consumed/grounds included, in
small sips. Russia, Switzerland and
Denmark all follow the French fashion.
.Bulgaria prefers Turkish methods. In
Brittany the housewife thinks no" coffee, worth drinking unless made from
beaus she has roasted herself. The
Italian idea combines the methods of
Brittany aiid Franco. The Austrians
are more original and make delicious
coffee with milk topped with whipped
cream. The Mexican drinks a brand
of coffee peculiarly his own. Ground
coffee is placed'in a cloth'bag, which
is immersed in boiling milk ancl water
sweetened with brown stick sugar. In
Brazil, Chile and Paraguay they like
their coffee black and���often. The
Cuban pours and re-pours cold water

Story of Fidelity

monument has been set in honor of
one or the students wlio died fighting

Day after day the boy���Hanson was

Then came the summons to play a

and he took his place.
On the battlefield he exhibited the

One day his ollicer called for volunteers tor a hazardous bit of scouting.
Hanson wen*: oui with the party, but

Reveals Business Secret
Fill Customer's Order Exactly As
Given Says Sir Thomas Upton
One of the secrets of success in
business, remarked Sir Thomas Lip-
ton recently, is to fill a customer's order exactly as given; fory^m may'bo
sure that ho knows belter'than you do
precisely what his requirements are.
A tradesman may err, even with the
best intentions.
For instance, continued Sir Thomas,
there was the case of the newly-engaged young man who informed the
lady of-his choice, aged 21, that he was
sending her a ro sector K'Ycry yoar of
her ago.
To the florist he gave the order to
send the lady two dozen of the Quest
red roses In could procure.
"He is a good customer," remarked
the florist io his assistant, who was
packing the blooms, "so put in au
extra half-dozen."
The engagement was broken off.

difference in my ggnerafhealth. I waa
full of aches and pains at the time and
thought I had every complaint going,
but f can,truthfully say your medicine
certainly did me good. I can and will
speak highly of it, and I know it will
do other women good who are sick
