Successful Fair
at Rock Creek
The ninth annual Fall Fair at
Riverside Hall, Rock Creek, was held
last Friday on a day of beautiful sunshine. The previous weather conditions put farmers in arrears with their
work and a considerable number remained home to avail themselves of
the- fine weather. There ' were 383
entries with 75 competitors. The display was better than expected. The
vegetable exhibits and the ladies department were the largest and best in
the show. A feature was the very
high quality of the exhibits. The home
cooking section attracted much attention. Childrens exhibits were clever
particularly the modelling. .The flower
display wasr excellent considering the
lateness of the. season. The poultry
list was small, but some very fine birds
were., judged. The black silver foxes,
Chinchilla and silver black rabbits exhibited by Lewis Keir of the Cedar
Glen: Fur Farm, Midway road, were
much admired. The tame - young
cougar held on a leash by Mrs. Kayes
was the centre of attraction during the
Great interest was taken this "year.

Higlier Education In Canada
During the month of October two notable celebrations hare occurred in
Canada,���ttie centenary of tho University of Toronto, tlie original charter of
which was.granted by King George IV. in 1S27, and tlio golden jubilee of the
University of Manitoba. Needless to say, both anniversaries' were marked
by. interesting ceremonies', and attended by many distinguished men and
women. Well deserved tributes'to the part played by those 'institutions of
higher learning in the religious, political, scientific- and economic life of
Canada wove voiced! Indeed, the influence of tho older of these two great
institutions has been felt throughout"'the United States as well aa Canada.
Considering tlie population of Canada/and the number,- size, and financial
tsirongih of Canadian universities, it is not only surprising but .a distinct
tribute to those bodies that they occupy such a relatively high place ainong
the universities o'f the world. Ail of Canada's universities are still young In
years, but thoir standards are high and their achievements noteworthy. Their
graduates are to be found all over the globe doing somc of tho best of the
world's work.
For example, it is revealed by a recent survey of ���medical colleges in
North America made by Rockefeller Foundation that the Medical .College, or
the University of Toronto ranks first, with Harvard University second, John
Hopkins University, Baltimore, third, and .McG-ill, Montreal, fourth,'a truly
remarkable showing for Canada. Instead of Canadians, having to go abroad
5n order to obtain the best in University training, tho reverse Is true, ami
hundreds of United States students are annually enrolled in Canadian institutions. Even from, the British Isles come students to take the engineering
courses al McGill, and to pursue their medical, studies in Canada.
It was from the medical college of Toronto University that Dr. P. CV.
Banting gave, his wonderful discovery of insulin, to-the-world, while many of
thc groat engineering feats in Canada during the last fifty years, and in other
parts or tho world as well, are due to the genius of Canadiau University
trained engineers. -���
From the. earliest days, education has been given the very forefront in
every Canadian programme. It has dominated. tlio-thouglit- and inspired the
policies of the Canadian people. The result is seen in the character of the
people, in the strength of our public institutions, and. in tlie growing
importance of Canada in world affairs.
Thc younger universities of these Western Provinces aro worthily
upholding the traditions,and standards of the older .institutions and ���will play
au equally important part in the ���'upbuilding of the West and iu the:
contributions (hoy will mako to the life of the Dominion. Particularly in their
researfh,..survey, and extension departments is work of the most vital.interest
to this country being performed. The strides being made in the development
of agriculture along scientific lines, and in overcoming plant pests, such as
rust, will not only moan untold millions to the farmers of the'West, but .-Svill
result in a general raising of the standard of living, of cultural .equipment,
and of the level of prosperity throughout Canada.
In one of the three prairie provinces at the present time, one in every
four of lhc population is attending school. In a small Western city or
approximately 10,000 population, there; is-'at* present enrolment in public and
'feeparate schools, high, schools, colleges, and other institutions of learning no
less ihan :i(i,0-#0, students. The .writer has "not. the-data but-no "doubt tire
same statement can be made of other Provinces and-cities in the West. The
heaviest single Item, of taxation borne by the people is foi- education, but it is
borne gladly and.without complaining. In fact, it is a matter of pride and the
boast of ihc West, '['[ "W W
No other subject, no other department" of the Government, is -watched
more closeiy than education. It is well that this should be'so, because in
the intelligence, the training, the character of theyounger generation lies" the
hope, ihe future of .this great country. .Here.is to be. found the basic
foundation of alflliatMs line and worthwhile in life, and upon such- foundation

Believe Animals Can Think
Clever Training Not Altogether.. Responsible For Their Intelligence
Celfel that animals can think was
expressed by some delegates to the
International Congress for Psychic
Research at Paris although others
were inclined to. believe that clover
training was responsible for manifestations indicating thought on the
part of animals.
Charles Richet, president of the
congress, although expressing uu-
willlngness totleclare his views without qualification, said "that It would
be very daring to say categorically
..that human existence is entirely different from that of animals. We certainly find evidence of thought in animals," ho ?_ald, "and lho time will
come, i think, when we will discover
a chain of connection between-'Jjjology,
physiology and metaphysics.

A Welland  Lady Tells  Of  the
Value Of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills In Her Home
"I have many reasons for praising
Dr. -Williams' Pink Pills," says Mrs.
George L. Swick, R.Ii. No. 2, Welland,
Ont, ��� "My first experience with this
medicine was in my girlhood, when,
following an .attack of scarlet lever,
I was left in. a badly run down condition :and'-tlie. pills restored me to good
health.'. Later iu my married life I
had a'severe attack of rheumatism.
The pain in my right.arm and shoulder was. so bad that I could not dress
mvseli without help. .Again 1 resorted to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and
again tliey proved a blt!s:-.iug to mo,
as soon the rheumatic pains and stiffness disappeared and there has been
no-return of-the trouble. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills have also been oi
great-benefit to niy children. One of
my boys was threatened with St.
Vitus dance. His, limbs and face
would twitch and-jerk. I gave him
:|.he pills, and again they did not fail,
as under tlie"-treatment tho trouble
���ccased.^U.Iiaye-also.-.giv'cn the pills
to my little girl, who was anaemic,
and in this case also with tho greatest
benefit. Naturally when I hear anyone complaining of not feeling well I
recommend''Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
as I know', of no other medicine to
equal them in building up thc blood
and restoring health."

Iter THE P?
Declares People Are

Largely Responsible For Crime Waves
Says  Russian  Professor
Tho clay is not far off, in the opinion of Prof. Alexander Tchijevsky, or
Moscow University, when a judge, in
estimaaing the degree of guilt of a
person convicted of crime, will demand to know tho meteorological ana
astronomical conditions -'obtaining at
the time the crimo was committed. -
Tchijevsky claims to have discov-
pred a decided relation between sun-
spot activity and human frailty. In
a report prepared for thc Moscow
Psychological Laboratory he writes:
"The nearer a crinfb is to the timo
when sun-spot activity reaches its
maximum, the less is the responsibility of the guilty person for the crime
committed, judges in pronouncing
sentences should, bear in mind and
act accordingly."
Sun-spots, he, says, "produce an
enormous amount of electrons, which
on reaching the earth cause the aurora
borealls, magnetic Storms and- other
phenomena -of nature.' They also' operate on tho nervous system of man
and bring marked changes in his emo-

Bank of England. Every Monday certain governors, of thc bank now meet
tho architect, a' representative of thc
constructors, and other experts, to
discuss precisely what work will be
done before the following Monday.
This novel "works committee" -is
oxoicising such infinite care over
every detail of lhe world's most famous bank that the building of it is expected 10 trilro at least ten years.
'Tho most astonishing feature about''
Ihe work is the almost uncanny secrecy with which it is being dono.
Every day thousands of enquiring
spectators, many of -them visitors
Trom the United States and overseas,
peer through tho doorways without"
becoming more than dimly aware of
the great monument that is slowly
coming to perfection. <
Within a hundred yards or so of
the bank, buildings have subsided and
collapsed.- The bank itself 'has no
fear of such a catastrophe, for? its
foundations are being laid as firm
and solid as tho Rock of Gibraltar.
The cost of the new- bank is estimated today at ?25,000,000. It will

its huge banyan trees,. One of_tlie
largest of these trees has had to undergo a surgical operation for fungus
growths. The present age of the treo
is about' 15S years, but according to
Dr. King, the superintendent, it is
much older. Tho circumference of the
trunk, in 1923, at a height of about Vk
feet, was about 51 fcct, the crown
about 1,000 *��� feet, ancl the number of
aerial roots about CO'l, which aro actually rooted, down in thc ground,
It is a pity that the main trunk

ITuft, Tancock Island, N.S., writes:
".I have ten children, the baby being
just six months old. I ������ have used
Baby's Own Tablets for them for the
pa,st 20 years and can truthfully say
that I know of no better medicine for
little .one?. I always keep ' box of tbe

One Reason For Advertising
Change "In Market Makes It Imperative For Business Success
If the same people always lived in
the samo place and kept on doing the
same things, thou it might not be
necessary to keep on advertising day
after day, month after month, and
year after year. But thcy don'f. Part
of America's market dies every clay
and a new part takes its placo.Tami-
lies not only change their living places, but they change their bujing habits. The pay envelope or' today is not
spent exactly the same as tho pay
envelope of five years ago was spent,
nor will the pay envelope of next year
be spent exactly as tho pay envelope
of this week, One advertising'man
has these figures about tho changes
Lhat take place in our markets in a
single year: 2,500,000 babies start
their earthly careers: '400,000 bigh
school students discover tbat a diploma is no opening sesame to a job;
1,250,000 couples decide that two can
live cheaper than one; 2,000,000
families get the wanderlust; 1,400,-
000 people shako off the "mortal coil."
. To play a bigger part in the mai-
kets of tomorrow you must keep, in
front of tho public your wares of today���and every day. Your goods
will not interest tho public unless
you see to it that tliey uo. How can
.yoa do this without keeping on advertising. !
Who watched tho artist paint a porcelain cup
Did wonder when he gathered brusnes
And said, "My task is dono,"    *-
That on the toy's fine rim,
A border black nwl ircim
Contrasted, hatefully with gentlo-tint
Of pink and azure,  blond  and beryl
Ancl mocked those threads of sun.
That made the cup a prize
'i'o ravish royal eyes.
"Why leavo this scowl of black?" one
dared inquire.
Tlio artist answered, "Clay must taste
the fire,
And by that test bo tried."
Snatched from the furnace heat,
Transfigured and complete,
Tho dazzling gift comes crowned with
aureole gleam,
Us black all changed to gold. So, liko
a dream,
Heart said to heart dial sighed,
Grief may be joy at last.
When life's ilerce test has passed.
Tho child 'of God is   assured   that
all things work together for good; in
this is plainly   Included   tlie   pledge
that    chastisements    and    afflictions
shall eventually prove a blessing.

Douglas Fairbanks is again the cinema pioneer. In this instance he is exploring the realm of color photography,
and it is said that "Thc Black Pirate,"
the screen production he is now releasing is easily another outstanding novelty.
" It was made after five months of
preliminary scientific research. In addition to its actual color, it glows with
tlie color of romance and adventure.of
heaving ships and rolling seas, pieces-
of-eight and plank-walking pirates.. It
will .quicken the pulse of everyone who
has read and dreamed of the days of
piracy. .The Technicolor process by
which* this film is being;made stands
as another triumph for American ingenuity. "The Black Pirate" comes to
the Greenwood theatre on the 14th and
15th of' October.
