games of the'season between Rock

the Beaverdell team having a big
lead, then Rock Creek went on a ���
batting spree and ��� made nine runs
in the seventh inning. This made
fehe score eleven ail and exeitemerife
ran high during-the eighth when
our boys mado another ran, giving
them a lead, with which they felfe
quite, safe,' knowing" the local
pitcher, Charlie Nordman, was in
great form. The first two batters
up for Rock,Creek in the 9th fanned, and the next one was caught
out afe first, so this ended, a very
close and exciting game. . The
Rock Creek boys have the makings
of a dandy good team, and are all
hard workers. They haye _ a capable manager in Ted Pittendrigh,
and we hope to see them play
again before the' season is over.

Within tlie short s_>.u-.; nl' l��ri.s tlmn tlio HfV-of ;i generadon the automobile
h.-ift worked a complete revolution in modes of transportation aiul in the lives
oi ptsople. ]!iu owing io cho recklessness ol' no many drivers of curs it lias
become a veritable nightmare to locomotive engineers. To a greater extent
IImh anyihing else it is llie cause of nervous breakdowns among trainmen.
This ia the age ol* speed, aiul Uiousa'ndH of motorists delight in tearing
uiv/tig road:; and over railway,,crossings at top speed although there is no
need lor haste. They ignore the fact tliat there is mon
derived from leisurely driving, and tliat, a'moment's stop at a level railway
crossing to allow an approaching train to pass is not lost time. They scorn
the-risk Ihey themselves run, and every year hundreds pay the full penalty
of iheir folly, while other hundreds have causcv to remember in pain and a
pdanaruitly crippled condition the terrible price tliey are paying on account
of their heedlessness.
But there is 'another side to the picture, and a locomotive engineer of the
Pennsylvania Ufuhoad has written an article, appearing in The Outlook, in
which he describes just what the reckless motorist, who tries to "beat" an
exi/.cesotrain to the crossing, costs the engineer in nerve stability, and the
consentient danger to every passenger on the train. This article is so
Illuminating ancl timely that if is worthy of repetition. The locomotive engineer in ciuiislion writes:
"Come and take a ride with mo in the cub of. my engine. 1 am going
to drive her at the rate of sixty miles an hour, which means that sometimes
she will go considerably faster thaa that. There will be thrills. Perhaps
i should leil you in advance'or some of the.things vou,will see���and feel.
o '- '**
"Tliere are grade-crossings, you know. The crossings are not. dangerous, but the uufomobilb creates a danger at them, i do not recall many trips
when 1 did not. have from one to three close calls. At practically every grade
crossing without guard-gales some driver goes over after the. whistle has
been sounded. And where there are guard-gates, they sometimes smash
them down and go over just tlio same. Perhaps you will understand the
nature of the thrills better if 1 .give you. one or two specific instances.
"On Ilu; fifteen Ui of lust January 1 took my run oui at G'.-ll a.m. An hour
later, I was driving along at reduced speed, probably forty miles an. hour. I
whistled long .and-loud for-a p.'.rllcularly: bad crossing. When within about
150 fce.f of the crossing I saw lights bobbing around on the planks. That indicated an automobile���in" motion.' My fireman, as I afterwards learned, was
looking directly at'.iho car. It did noi occur to'him af fhWt.h'a'l.- tho driver

Pain In The Muscles,
Stiffness In Joints,
Quickly Subdued By Nerviline
Those 'who have tested out numerous-liniments-will agree that where
something is needed to dislodge a
deep-seated, more or less chronic con-
real pleasure to be ditlon there is nothing to compare with
Nerviline. ��� it's becauso Nerviline
penetrates yo deeply, becauso it has
about five -times the strength- of the
ordinary oily preparation, It has come
to be known as King over all Pain.
For Rheumatic conditions, muscular
and joint stiffness, Nerviline works
wonders. A trial proves this. Get a

The soothsaying maid of Phllippi,
verses 16.18.���Some time after coming
.to Phllippi, as Paul and hia companions went to tho place of prayer
whero he was wont to preach, ho was
annoyed by a fortune-telling maid who
keilt crying out after them. Her
monotonous chant disturbed him, and
drew an uncomfortable crowd of curiosity seolurs. .Day after,day she
cried, "Those men are servants of tho
Most High God, who proclaimed unto
you the way of salvation." Iri tho
margin of the Revised -Version the
alternative translation for "a soothsaying maid" given is "a.maid having
a bpirit, a Python." The great dragon at Delphi slaiu by Apollo was
called a Python, and according to
Plutarch so also at this time was a
ventriloquist. Dr. Ramsay says that
"God the Highest" was a widespread
pagan expression, and "salvation" Avas
the object of many vows and prayers
to the gods. He further says that
the slave girl's mind became distorted
and diseased by lier belief in her
super-natural possession, but it became all tho moro acute in certain
perceptions and intuitions, and she became at ono alive to the moral influence which the intense faith of the
strangers gave them.
Paul in the name of .Tesus Christ
biide the spirit leave her. And she
was freed. "Paul's power over her
was not necessarily miraculous; it
was that of a good man over a sensitive nature. This slave girl became
tho second Christian convert in Phil-
ippi and led up to another conversion
equally strange."

Canadian Hforiie
Young British Immigrant Is Satisfied
*'���'���', With Conditions Here
Recently the Condon, England, oflice
. of the Canadian department of immigration and colonization received a letter from the father of a young man
���who recently-came to ..Canada from
Cornwall, England. For purely personal reasons the writer desires tp remain anonymous, but'says: "Vou may
at (tiny time put any doubter or" enquirer . desiring independent evidence
in communication witli me and I.'-will
gladly tell the story."
"My spii," ho goes on, "aged. 21, left
England in April last year by the
CP.ll. Montlaurler, for Windthorst,
Saskatchewan. 12 miles from 'which a
young' Cornish friend was employed.
He-had no definite:.employment, but
Was invited to conic along as, he was
told, workers were wanted in plenty.'
"Arriving at Windthorst. too late to
be. met by his frieud's employer, he
found someone from a local hotel
wailing; for hitn, uud accommodation
for. the night arranged.y .While having*, supper the farmer's wife phoned
aslcing if he was quite.comfortable, and
- had all he wanted, and saying lhat his
friend would drive in next morning,
spend;, the day with him there ancl
bring him back to the larmstcad at
"This followed a very lcindly reception from folk upon whom my sou had
no"~claim" whatever. During the' first
slipper at the farm, an offer of work
was- accepted and turned out very
happily. After the busy season he
spent thc: winter with the farmer and
his taniily, and on,llie anniversary of
his landing In Canada, took on the
working of the adjoining, (arm of 320
acres, for "u. neighbor. lie provided
horses, see.l', etc., tind look in payment
two-thirds of the proceeds ofthe crops.
"���"Between seeding and harvest last
year ~m,v son had opportunities for
football, as goalkeeper for the local
team, his" employer giring him time
off, and another farmer, keen on the
game, motoring him to phi^ing fields
some miles away. He writes1 in the'
cheeriest manner possible. In the
first 12 months he saved enough lo
make his start in fhe way mentioned,
and is very happy in his work.
"He is strong and willing. A*very
cheerful fellow, he had five years" experience of farming in Cornwall before going'oitt, so lie.could be depended upon fo give, a good account of himself, but for the very kindly reception,
the considerate treatment ever since,
and the capital opportunities afforded
him lo niaks good, lie and,we are very
grateful. If'any .man who has no one.

Wall   Discovery Causes  Dispute Over
i Holy  Sepulchre .Location
Part of the wall enclosing'Jerusalem
built by Agrippa,' oiie of the last Jewish kings,'and destroyed;by Titus, has-
been unearthed recently. About 60.
yards of the Vail, some four yards iu
"thickness., have been uncovered by the
'Jewish' Exploration Society. *��� ;. ���'.'.
' This discovery has aroused deep interest, in archaeological and religious
circles. -If this .is the third of the
aeries of walls built around Jerusalem^
it is argued, ir. brings -into question
tho authenticity of the site of the Holy
Sepulchre, which is thus placed outside the-city walls.
The third wall .was commenced, by
Herod Agrippa about 40-41 A.D. .and
Avas interrupted by Uie Roman governor of Syria, to be completed later
by the Jews''.before.'., the final siege of
tho city. By all accounts there were
three walls which protected Jerusalem on the north, built successively
both, for- the���protection of the-weakest side of the defences and to afford
room tor the steady growth of the
city at thc beginning of the Christian
era. Both lho first aud second walls
were standing tit the time of "Christ
and the place of crucifixiou and burial
must havo been outside them'.      -��
Some scholars have contended that
the site ol^ihe. Holy Sepulchre is impossible because it. is shut w;ithln ancient Jerusalem, it being known that
crucifixions did noi~take place within
tlie city walls. Adherents or ihis view,
especially a large number-ol Ihe English community, who have always
entertained doubts about the, location
of the Holy Sepulchre, see further confirmation in this discovery of what is
believed to be the third wall.     /

Money Valuable Only as it Contributes
Io the Abundance of Life
On Ids 09th birthday a Seattle man

After all, life itself is the only real
wealth. Money .is valuable, only :Vs
it contributes to the abundance,of life.
Youth and health are valuable because they contribute to the same
abundance. Age is valuable if it
means the stored wisdom of experience. What youth anticipates age

He was 6(5 years old. Groves was

farm rented Groves 10 acres of ground.
At his death he owned a 523-acre farm,
besides 1,600 acres of wheat land."
Groves' title of "Potato King" came
from the success he had in raising

Williams' Pink Pills do in cases of
this kind is told by Mrs. Augusta
Emery, Woolford Station, Alta., who
says:���"Living on lhe prairie, and
knowing 11ml there are thousands of
women like myself miles away from a
doctor. I want to fell litem what Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills have done for me.
After my llrst baby was born I seemed
to have little energy. I felt weary
and run-down and unable to do even
fhe ordinary household duties. I felt
I needed a tonic and as I had .long
seen Dr. Williams' Pink Pills advertised I decided to try them. 1 got a
supply and carefully followed the
directions and before very long the
result was wonderful. Day by day I
regained my former strength and energy. The pills seemed fo give me a
keen appetite and f gained In weight
and soon was able not only to do niy
work about the house, bul-to help with
many chores on the farm. For this
reason 1 would advise women, particularly those on the prairie or- lhe
larm, to ke.'p a supply-of these pills
always on hand. One trial will convince" you of their worth. 1 have
recommended them to many of my
friends tind never have they failed fo
produce good results."

Power From Subterranean Steam
Harnessing Reservoirs of Heat in
Interior of the Earth
With the7 rapid dwindling of the
world's .natural resources in stored
fuel���coal, oil and gas���engineers and
scientists in recent months have been
turning to trie problenf of tapping and
harnessing'the'vast reservoir of heat
in the interior of the.eitrth.
The latest plau, and one of tho most
elaborate, developed by Rudolf Lam-
niel, a German engineer, ls described
In the September issue of Popular
Science Monthly.- It proposes drilling two shafls,.,one straight, the other
with a number of rectangular bends,
to a depth oT three miles. This depth
Is about 2��/i limes that of the deepest
shafts ever drilled. , Both* shafts lead
to a large subterranean chamber cut
out of solid rock.
If we estimate that with every 100
feet downward the temperature rises
one degree Centigrade, the temperature of the* walls of lhat chamber will
be approximately 830 degrees Fahrenheit. ..'' At a depth of three miles the
air atmospheres, are about 30 pounds
to the. square inch. Tho boiling
point of ���water under -.this pressure
would be 2-1S degrees Fahrenheit, more
than 80 degrees lower than the temperature of the chamber.
From a reservoir on the surface,
water is sent down thfoughi""u pipe
that follows the bends and turns of the
stepped shaft to the chamber tit the
bottom. >As the water rushes downward, it becomes gradually hotter,
and at a depth of nearly two miles it
turns to steam, which is forced into
the chamber by pressure of the column
of wtiter above. In the high temperature of the chamber the steam is
superheated and expanded.' Il seeks
an outlet through the straight! shaft.
Beaching the surface, the superheated steam, is distributed first to
the:turbines of a light and power station, then to various industrial establishments and to residences and public" buildings where it is used for
heating, purposes.
The energy to be derived from a
plant of . this'.description,' of course,
depends on the volume of water obtainable. Assuming that a constant
flow ol" 13 cubic yards a second is obtainable, as it is iu many existing
hydraulic power plants, the potential
energy made available by heating that
volume ofjwatev fo 3!!0 degrees Fahrenheit would be equal to nearly 3,000, -
000 kilowatts a day, representing an
economic value equal to 7<\000 tons lit
good coal a day.

South African Native
Ancient Human Type
Anatomists Greatly Interested In, Find
At Capetown
South Africa has yielded another
cranial curiosity whicli is attrStting
attention ainong anatomists apd antiquarians almost equal to thai aroused by the'dlscovery early this year of
���a fossilized skull at Tarings, Heehuan-
iiland, described at the time as representing something, midway between
man and tho grea< apes.
W'hen the body of a native was dissected at the anatomical school of
Capetown Fnivciviiy, It was found to
hare a typical "boskop" skull, virtually identical with that discovered in
the Transvaal in fostdl form in 1513
anil traced to the ice age of-probably
35,000 years hack.
Anatomists emphasize tlie interest
and importance of the recurrence of
a type of man hitherto unknown except in fossil remains.'

of finance heads on the subject of

There is some agitation at the

not the slightest chance.that any
of the provinces will repeal it.

from this source, and if it were
