Friday evening, Aug. 27th, was
the occasion of .one.of the most
successful dances ever held in the

Errors About- This Trouble Into

Many people so far misunderstand
tho ^digestive system;-*as to treat 11
like'a machine; neglecting it tmt|l- it
works sluggishly, then irritating it
into" work again "by.thc Use of purgatives. The stomach needs help at all
times, but a study of the process of
digestion will show that purgatives,
a.s commonly taken, are seldom necessary aud often harmful.
To safeguard your digestion / the
diet must be controlled. Over-eating
is always harmful, but..o'ne must as-
similato enough food to supply the
ueeds of the blood. Remember, the
blood has to carry nourishment to all
parts of the body and llnd fuel for its
energy. Hence when the blood becomes weak and fails to do its worlc,
indigestion arises. Therefore tho
sure remedy for indigestion is to build
up tho blood. * If you suffer from any
form of indigestion choose your diet

Rasputin Mystery Cleared Up
Professor     Discovers     Why     Deadly
Poison  Had   No  Effect
' A (professor at Marseilles has discovered why it was that Rasputin, tha
evil genius of Russia, did not succumb
to the heavy doses    ot   cyanide    of
potassium that the. nohjes at Prince
Vussopoff's  palace  made-him  drink.
The wine was heavily sugared. . The

against C3ranide of potassium.     Anl-"5'

Marvellous Record
Of British Railways
_. *j       - ���   ���
Passengers'   Risk   of   Meeting   Deatn
Well Nigh Negligible
Only one passenger lost his.life as
the result of a railway^ accident-in
Great Britain last year. He was not
killed outright, .but died from shock
due to his weak state of healths Ac-'
cording to the rules governing oflicial statistics,,however, he had to Do
reported as killed in the accident,
Thus preventing 1923��� rrom 'figuring
in the same" category as - 190S antl
JD01, when noL a.single passenger
met death in "an accident" on tho
British railways. The only recent
year when a large number of persons were killed in a British railway
accident was in 1913, when 22-1 lives
were lost in a disaster to a troop
train.-    Aside  lrom  that  a   century
��� of British railroading -shows astonishingly few fatalities.       .      """  .  '
. The worst years were" IS.2U, 'with
twenty-live flillcd;^ 1906, with fifly-
Ihree;    1910,   with twenty-three, and
1913, with thirty-three. 'The heat
records, besides those already.' mentioned, wero 1909, with ...one fatality;
1914, with six. and. 1916,1919 and 192;!,
with three each. '     '
This remarkable record was achieved despite the fact thar. more than
1,700,000,000 passengers travel -yearly
on British trains, whicli involves run-
- nlug 262,000,000 passenger train
miles, in fact, as the. railway companies proudly point out. The record
means that passengers' risk of nieet-
nlgh negligible.
Asked how such a record was
achieved, a railway official replied
that it was due lo-the "careful way

Vet what do we find? .The first prize
in the Popular Science Monthly com-
petition goes to Mr. John Ir Clinster of
Whitesboro, New York, and his hint
of the best way to' obtain relief during high temperature is: "A hot shower followed by a hot drink, taken during the hottest part of the day." "In
his surprising method ' of obtaining
coolness he is backed by science,"
comments.the Ponulur Science Monthly. "The hot bath cleanses and opens-
the pores of the"skin,'.the warm drink
induces perspiration wliich also cools
off the body." Which goes-to show
that'the Chinaman had good grounds
for a practice which on the -surface

Alive  In Ice. Blocks
Many   Fish   Merely   Go   to   Sleep   in
Freezing Temperature
'J'he director of a new Chicago
���aquarium is investigating the possibilities of importing live Alaskan blacit-
fisbh in blocks of ico with the Idea of
thawing them out for exhibition in the
show tanks.'
Such a scheme has already been
considered :by the aquarium authorities tit the London Zoo, for tliere
are many fish which will stand being
frozen" solid and still revive wheu carefully restored "to normal conditions.
At the temperature of freezing water
these fish go to sleep.
. An ordinary goldfish which jumped out of it's tank lay for 18 hours on
a conservatory floor dried up like a
bloater, yet came to life when restored to the aquarium. ' It. was" freezing
hard at the time and this fact saved
its life; in warm weather it would
have gasped outfits life in a few
minutes, instead bf . becoming comatose. ' ��*'
In Siberia, where thc streams
freeze "solid, fish are actually quarried outnfor market. They are sold
in their crystal casings, and come to
life in the kitchen only to die in the
frying pan. l .^
A pei trout In a Cumberland household, was frozen solid during one winter and could be seen for somo time
in the middle of a block of ice. The
thaw came, and it once more 'swam
ifbout. ��   -
In the process whicli is being con-
sidered in the Chicago case mentioned above the fish are slowly chilled in tanks until thoy become sleepy.
.Then, in Jiighly aerated water, they
are slipped inside a hollow in a blocn.
of ice and frozen 'stiff. There they
sleep until  scientifically thawed.

Strange   Story  From   India
Says   Stolen    Hindu   Children   Crawl
Like  Wolf Abduclorc
Fantastic tales of how/Hindu children, stolen by wolves, learn to crawl
on air fours in imitation of their .abr
cluctors until far past the age at which
children usually walk, are contained in the reports from Lleut.-Coi.
Faunthorpe, magistrate of .several
provinces of India. xDuring the harvest, season, women leave their children' asleep on. ihc ridges separating
the fields, finding later that the babies
have disappeared. The women believe they arc carried away by gypsies and wild beasts.
Faunthorpe, writing In a Calcutta
newspaper, mentions the case or a
boy of eight years, who was captured by wolves and later photographed by Faunthorpe crawling on
his knees .and elbows .and behaving
like a wolf. After his capture the
child died from fright.
The Hindu tale probably establishes the trut^ of the Roman' legend
about Remus and llomulus.
" Tlie wolves are considered a pest
by the Hindus and the- government
is making efforts toward their destruction. ' - ;
Lieut.-Col.' Faunthorpe mentions
the case of a packet wolves attacking an antelope in flank ��� formation.
An soon as the wolf fighting the antelope is exhausted It ls relieved by
another, which' carries on the battle
until the antelope is vanquished.

My Dear Sir: -

favor of the 19th inst on' my return

: I am happy to say that by reason
of a. number of requests for reconsideration of the question of open season for
grouse, I have had the situation checked, and being convinced that, we were
not fully appraised of the actual stand
of birds, I have though, it only right
that we should break our rule of not
changing the regulations after being
once fixed, and the Board has accordingly recommended that grouse open
in your district between the ISth Sept.
and 15th October.
I am sure that this will be good

' Dear Sir: ���-,.,..*
I have read with much interest of the recent appearance ofthe
"Okanagan  Lake Monster"   and   am
wonderingijf any old-tinier has had any
experience similar to the following:���
'i;       On the evening of June 30th last I
was.  walking  from   Rock  Creek   to
. Kettle Valley  in   search  of a" Beer
Parlor; on leaving Riverside I saw an
enormous monster   swimming   down
stream on the surface of the water; it is
difficult) to describe the exact form of
this monster, but it was somewhat of a
cross between a log of wood, a barrel
'of beer and 'a Ford- eir; it had a large
black and white head which resembled
a very.largemajnum whiskey bottle. I
followed him down _ stream \ as far as
Palm Beach where he stopped, raised
his enormpus head aloft, took one long-
'ing glarffie and knowing wink at the
ladies bathing tent and then disappeared. ::'��� I have not seen' him since but
should be very glad to hear if any old-
timer of sthis District has had a similar
experience. ' **���
