Mr. W. T. Greeinvay, formerly eon-
Aa effort is now being made by organizers oi' the l.AV.W. lo organize a
farm-workers' branch of that body of international agitators and trouble
makers in AVinnipeg, which is the centre of distribution of farm .workers
throughout Western Canada, and oue of the international organizers, is now jn
Winnipeg assisting Uie local organizers of i.he I.WAV.
On a previous occasion, two or three years ago, an attempt was made'to
organize an I.W.W. farm-workers body among the unemployed in Winnipeg
al a time when efforts were being made by the civic authorities to find employment for these men on farms, thus benefiting them, helping the fanners,
���and relieving the economic situation in the city. At that time one. of the
1.W.AV. organizers was reported as using the following language in a speech
'delivered in the Labor Temple:
''The; only way lo get even wiih the farmer for paying so small a wage
to��� the worker was for tlie worker to turn round and sabotage the farmer.
There were always Jots of wagons, machinery aud shovel handles that the
workers could break up. and it would only be a short: time until tlie farmer
would realize the necessity of paying a decent wage in order to protect his
personal  belongings.      Those of the unemployed ranks who were going out
on the farm should get together and run an organized sabotage on the farmers,
and make them spend more money on  tools and implements if they would
not spend If on their farm hands."
In Alberta an attempt of the l.AA'.AA". to organize farm-workers' branches
was lulled through newspaper publicity, resulting in the farmers themselves
being made fully aware of the designs against them, and leading to tlie taking
of necessary precautions and concerted action.

Charles David Lucas Was Decorated
By Queen Victoria
Included in the estate of Mra.
Frances Russell Lucas, is a priceless
relic, the first Victoria Cross ever
awarded. Mrs. Lucas was the widow
of Admiral Charles David Lucas, ihe
first man to win the A'.C.
This was gained on June 20, 1S5-I,
when H.M.S. Ift-chi \v_as bombarding
liomarsunda fortress, in lhe Baltic.
AVhen the Hecla was within 500 yards
of the principal fort, a live shell, with
the fuse burning, fell on tho deck.
Lucas, who was then a midshipman,
picked up the shell in an instant and
hurled it into the sea. Almost before
it reached the water it exploded with
a terrific roar. Captain Hall, of the
Hecla. immediately promoted Lucas a
lieutenant, and three years later
Queen Victoria decorated him with the
Victoria Cross. Mrs. Lucas was't.he
daughter or Captain Hall, of the
J-Tocla, afterwards Admiral Sir William Hutchison Hall.

" Eczema broke out in a rash on
my face and later '.spread to my
scalp. The rash scaled over and
sore eruptions formed. It caused a
great deal of itching and burning
and my face was very sore. The
trouble lasted three or four weeks.
" I was treated without any benefit. I began using Cuticura Soap
and Ointment and could see a great
change after the first night. I continued the treatment and In four
weeks I waa completely healed."

1.���The Impression made by Paul's
first preaching at PIsldian Antioch,
verses 42, 43.���See tho Historical
Background. As Paul and Barnabas
went out of the synagogue, tho people
besought Paul to address them the
following f?abbath. AVhen the congregation was dismissed, many devout
proselytes (God-fearing Gentiles���
their presence in the synagogue
gives evidence of th9 kindly feeling

to expect further divine .'favor in answer to  their steadfastness."
H.���The jealousy of the Jews, verses
44, 45.���-Taul must have been a most
convincing speaker, for the next

such a crowd filled the hearts of the

Doctor's Examination Helped to Convict Man of Counterfeiting
French police suspected a man of
counterfeiting, but had not the desired proof. The suspect was quite glib
and plausible under examination and
nothing could be proved against him.
"Before you depart, though," said
the investigator, "a doctor will examine you. "Merely a little precaution in
the interest or public health." The
man submitted willingly. Two days
later .the police called at his cafe and
again took him ln custody, for they
had evidence that eventually resulted
in his conviction. The prisoner liad
unwittingly supplied it during the
physical examination, In a tiny specimen of wax which the doctor had taken from hls'ear. This bit of wax had
been forwarded tho director of the
police-technical laboratory at Lyons,
who had photographically enlarged it
with" his microscopic camera. Magnified more than fifty thousand times,
the speck " of wax. showed telltale
streaks of printer's'ink, particles of
dust- identified as from a lithographic
stone, and traces of characteristic
crystals of a chemical used by cn-

How One Fire Chief Warned People
Against Carelessness
The Brandon Sun quotes a fire
chief who has a happy way of telling
a few things to people in general as
to the avoidance of fires, and he does
not do so in the stereotyped fashion at
aU. In fact, he gives hunches, and
he warns the people as follows:
A crack in your chimney is a sure"
sign that you are going to move.
To see a. paperhaugcr hang paper
over a Hue hole indicates, an impending
loss:     .,
It is worse luck to look in a dark
closet-"with a lighted match than to
see the "'new moon oyer your left
When the wind moans it. is extremely bad thick to burn trash near your

If you smell gas or gasoline and
look for. it with a lighted match, il;
is probable that you are about to starjt

If you have a pile of rubbish .in your

people are coming to yotuThouse. -���"-���
A 'quart of gasoline will cause an

have the peony recognized in Canada
at its true value" as a. landscape
plant; and he claims that it is the
only-bcaulilul hardy plant that will

llie maple, cannot exist in many parts
bi our couatry. Tho peony requires
less care than auy other plant or
shrub, and will succeed in any good
garden soil, provided it is exposed lo
sunlight and is well drained. Given
these slmph: conditions, and if it is

"Well, I guess I'd better plant you

School Sports at Midway
The expectations of all were
more than satisfied last Wednesday when pupils from eight
schools gathered to enjoy a days
real sport at Midway. The
spirit displayed by the children
was splendid. Each one entered
heartily into all the events working for the sake of the sport and
not for mere mercenary gain.
Many girls and boys proved
themselves sports in the true
sense of the word when they
entered into every possible event
and worked their very best when
they knew that they were beaten.
Their only desire was to make
points for their school. This unselfish spirit of school loyalty is
one all too rare among our
schools. It is very gratifying to
see signs of this spirit. May it
spread throughout this district
until each and every pupil feels a
deep and great pride in his school.
May each pupil desire bis school
to prove itself superior to any
other, and work with3 that end
in view, striving to gain points
; for the school when he cannot
gain a prize himself. When
this is true then those who have
worked to make this sports day a
success, will feel  amply repaid.
The. schools did splendidly,
especially the Norwegian Creek
school, the Greenwood boys and
the Midway girls. -VV 7-7- V-' "[
