Saskatoon, Ma?. 1���Charles H.
Fair, manager of the Hudson's Bay
Company departmental store in this
city, died suddenly at his home,at
8:30 o'clock Sunday morning,' at the
age of 52. /.
Although the late mt., Fair had
becn in' poor health for two months,
his passing was not expected. The
cause of death was heart failure.
Born in Toronto in 1873, Mr.
Fair moved with his parents to
Collingwood^ Ontario, at the age of
three, where he remained until 1898,
being associated with his father and
brothers in a general merchandise
��� When the gold rush to the Klod-
dyke came, Mr. Fair packed his grips
and followed in the trail of '98, He
remained in the Yukon for twoyears.
Following the mineis, Mr. Fair
moved south to Greenwood, B..C,
where he was fifteen years in the
haberdashery business.
Leaving his business when mining
in Greenwood was quiet Mr. Fair
went travelling for a New York firm,
handling dry-goods.
He then entered the employ of H.
G. Pardons at Goiden, as manager of
their dry goods department, occupying that position for several years.
After leaving ��� Golden he became
manager of the Hudson's Bay Company store in Lethbridge, later being
transferred to Montreal. In October,
1923, Mr. Fair was transferred to
Saskatoon, where he was placed in
charge-of-the local-store. v

Important Mining Deal
Last week Jno. Mowat brought
to town Harry Miller, of. Vancouver,   a   well   known / mining
man, who has been operating the
Vimy Ridge and Aberdeen mines
at   Merritt during the past   18
months.   Mr. Miller looked over
several properties in this district
and took an option from R. Forshaw on several of his claims in
Phoenix.   The claims were formerly owned by theOld Dominion
Copper Co. and are the Rawhide,
Brooklyn,      Stemwinder,     New
York, Standard, and Montezuma.
Mr./Miller' is delighted-with
his deal and enthusiastic as to
\hv success of these properties,
(.basing his opinion upon  the excellent ore showing.   If the. reports of well known and  highly
reputable engineers are -to be depended upon  the properties acquired  by  Mr.  Miller   have indeed a bright future before them.
It j_s expected that Mr.   Miller
will   acquire    other   properties,
in this district but nothing will
be done until  Mr.  C...J.  Curtin,
consulting engineer,   arrives   iu
town within the next two weeks,
and   on his advice will  depend
whether other   important   deals
will be consummated.
In regard to to the -.Brooklyn
mine an extensive development -
programme is under way. By
the securing of this property and
Its valuable ore bodies the new
pwn'ers feel justified in erecting a
concentrator for the milling of
the ore.
When   Mr.   Curtin   arrives,  a
mining engineer of high standing, other properties  will prob-   *
ably be taken over and "worked.
According to Mr. Miller this is
only the beginning of greater
things. ���=

Of c
In freedom from serious crime Canada enjoys a good name and reputation
���which i.s In striking contrast to iliat, of It's-groat, neighbor, tlu- United Suites.
Il is a name, and reputation whicli Canadians .should jealously guard and carefully refrain from policies and act ions which would in the slightest degree
.lower the .standard so Ions maintained in this Dominion.     A word of warning
Ai- in order .because signs are not : lacking'of a tendency lo grow somewhat lax
lu llie matter of law enforcement.        ���������'
. In Hie United States eiinie has-become m national menace, and in many
.respects the lav/ has broken down. So serious has the situation become that
responsible oflicials and isiuioii-wldo organizations, including the legal profos-
Biun, arc ""alarmed, and are looking aboul for some effective means of checking the reign of lawlessness aud violent criminal acts now recognized ns'ii
.'national'disgrace as well as daii��t.r, aud which places the United States'In an
unenviable class by itself among the tuitions of the world.     The rising tide
���of crime is now admitted to be one of the United States' greatest problems.
A study of some of the causes of tlio condition now existing lu the United
Slates may he of value to Canadians in'safeguarding themselves and their-
���eountry from the development of a similar state of'affairs here. But first
let us consider.a few figures.
In J'J22, J1.500 persons were killed in crimes of violence* in the United
��� States, lu L92K, tho number was 10,000, and in III 21 it had risen.to 11.00.0.
���Compare these figures with England and Wales.    In 1923 there were 58 iriur-
��� .lers commuted in .all-England and .Wales, and 93 homicides other than .mur-
���cler, a. total of J 51 as compared ���with 389 that same year in Chicago alone and
10,000 in the United States.   .The population of England and Wales at that
��� time was- 38,000,000 and of Chicago slightly less than 3,00^)00. London and
.Kev/ York have approximately the same population, but London had just 42
: murders in V)2?> as com pared-with New-York's ''262....  In   1923   more   than
��� twelve, times as many people were robbed in. one .United .States* city alone,
���Chicago, as in all the Dominion of Canada.
The dltTerence^between-the British and Canadian judicial* systems, ���with
.judges appointed for life, and the United State's system of. judges chosen by
popular election, is one cause of weakness across the line. Bitt the chief
factor in the increase of crime In thc United States is undoubtedly the lack
'���tit* law enforcement.'. In...many of the large'U. S. cities crime has-become a
well organized business..,. ;Many lawyers clever, but: utterly unscrupulous,
:rnake it their business to defend the criminal class'.,. They can command big
fees, and they take'rail advantage.'of every twist and quirk in. the ���.law to "get
these law breakers off." Partizan elected judges, and politically' chosen district attorneys, ami. a politically administered police force, cannot successfully
cope with these lawyers, backed with unlimited resources from the ���criminal
���Underworld. ������: '���'   ...:-.--���_
Lack of law enforcement,* and the abuse of the parole .system, has resulted in Ihe criminal class holdingthc law "and law oilicers in-'contempt. Punish'
meat has few terrors -for them, because in the majority of instances they, are
���confident they .can beat the law.     Aud they do...*_.*- ','-.;���'      ;���*-*.-.*
lu Canada and Great*Uritain, criminals have a wholesome respect for the
law.     They know it will be enforced without'fear or favor.     But,_unfortun-
v .afely, therehas developed in late years a certahrsicltly sentimentality among
people and some organizations for the criminal class.    -Those erjtnj'stedwith

in England against fox hunting.

ot tho cnnunal and,,not ol the community, and nowadays haroly a murderer

������lis tliey are in full possession of facts'unknown to .the 'public at largfc.
A contributing.'factor..to the rising' tide 'of crime in tlie U. Si. .is the case
���with which the criminal class, in fact, anybody, can.obtain pistols and i'e-

milied by Lhe use of pistols, ypt. the. appalling' fact is that'infthe year 1921

Explanations and Comments
Christ the Consoler, verse 1.���"Let
not your heart be troubled; believe in
God, believe also In Me," were the
beaulifupwords which the disciples
heard in Christ's last talk with them.
They wero perplexed ��� and anxious;
their hearts were failing-them as
they approached the last crisis in
their .Master's life. It was faith In
the Father that kept Christ, serene
and peaceful so near His end, and
faith in Hie Father and the Son
would uphold the disciples In that terrible lime.
What Jesus said to His troubled
disciples He says likewise to us iu our
times of storm and stress. Here lies
tiie secret of .an untroubled heart
amid troubled circumstances���faith in
a living,- loving God and Savior. Let
not Iroublc have dominion over you.
Keep yourselves in the love of God
and the peace of God sllftl guard your
hearts and your thoughts in Christ
"Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe
In God!"     Forgive us, Master, when

- Dodd's Kidney Pills simply heal sick-

because his ailments were symptoms
of kidney disease. When the kidneys
get out of older they fall to strain tlie
impurities out of the-blood and general
lassitude and weakness ensues. This
condition is not only disagreeable but
dangerous as well. The impurities in
the blood arc the seeds of disease. If

You would be surprised at the wonderful action of "Nerviline" in just
such cases. Being thin and not an

quickly, and down it sinks into the tissues, carrying its healing, soothing action wherever it goes. For stopping
muscular or norve pain, for easing a
stiff joint, Nerviline is a complete success. .Pain, soreness, stiffness all
vanish before the magic power of this
wonderful liniment. Nearly fifty
years of success* proves the merit of
Nerviline, which is sold everywhere In

Common Cold Is Dangerous
People in Error Who Consider-it Just
Simple Malady        ���-
Captain Itaold Amundsen discoverer, of the South Polo anil navigator of
the northwest passage, has been ordered to bed "a very sick man" because
he refused to take-a cold seriously.
How such a sturdy man could have
contracted such a malady Is in itself
a puzzle to the lay mind. We are Inclined to picture him aa having acquired immunity by long inarches into
the polar regions, but 11 ls the paradox
of the common cold that people accustomed to.,living out in the great
open and frozen spaces arc'liable.to It
the ���.moment tliey get back, to civilization and steam heal.
The-tramp who has spent most of his
nigh Id sleeping under a barb-wire
fence is likely to catch a cold if someone gives him the.price and ho spends
it on a good, warm bed.
When well and strong and feeling
line we seldom think about doctors,
and If Ave do it Is generally with the
comforting thought���',* that medical
science has conquered almost everything but cancer.
Biit let us catch a common cold and
fail to shake it off in a day, and we
set to thinking of tho thousands or,
years In which tho millions pf medical
men have failed to find a speedy cuic
for so simple a malady.
To wliich the profession replies that
il is not a simple and may prove a
very serious malady if not taken in
lime, and that the best way to take H
is to take the best advice. " It is nor
what thc doctor does not know, but
what the patient thinks ho knows himself that is the danger in a common
cold. A man with Ii cold is a sick
man and may become sicker IMio neglects it. '

Whether one catches cold easily is

resistance to disease is 'weak-and-at
such a time a cold is easy to contract
and diflicult to check,
Constipation is frequently the cause
of such a state of health, with its attendant listlessness, biliousness, headache-?
and a general lack of vitality. Poisorib

behind after improper, irregular bowel
elimination are picked up by llie blood

St. Patrick, a Foreigner
St. Patrick was not an Irishman.
France, Spain, England, Cornwall,
Wales, and Scotland have each its
warm advocates for the honor of the
Apostle's birthplace. The only
���point on which the historians are
Unanimous is that he was not'a native
of Ireland. The three most generally entertained opinions on the^sub-
jeet is that the Saint was born (1)
near the present town of BoouLogne,
on the French coast; or (2) at Dumbarton, on the river Clyde in Scotland;
or (3) near the Lower Severn or the
Bristol Channel,- within Glamorganshire, Wales. It is certain that he
was born of Christian parents, and
that his name was Patricius Mago.nus
Succat. Iii-his-fifteenth year young
Patrick was carried off by an Irish
.raiding expedition, and sold into
Londage in County Mayo. After six
years of slavery in Murrisk, Patrick
escaped to the Continent. He decided to devote his life to the conversion of the Irish. When he set
out from Rome, he was forty-three
years of age. The Saint's mission
was a wonderful success. All Ireland
was converted to Christianity "without
the sacrifice of a single life. The
old chronicler in' "The Book of
Armagh;" records that on March 17,
"'St. Patrick was translated to
heaven:". That was at the age of
seventy-two, in the year  461.    The
jCathblic ChurchL^-_c.ommemorates^=a
saint on the anniversary^of his death,
and thus-it is that March 17 is the
festival of Ireland's Apostle.���T. P.-'s
