Tlii-. very human characteristic finds expression In politics as in other
���nutters. i'Yoiu time Jmmcniorial men havc agitated, struggled, fought and
(.lied to obiain the riglit of self-government. Men and nations have been pre-
paied to ..aci-jflce everything else-to achieve personal and national liberty,
Hie light to make and administer their own laws. Some of the most ter-
lilde wars havo been fought over this one issue. The revolt of the American
colonies and the War of Independence, tho American Civil War, the French
li-. volution, the South African War, not to enumerate thc many struggles
lecoi'd-ed in'all English Histories, tell thc story of man's light for self-government. Early Canadian hisloiy. tho old Family Compact, and the gradual
development oi' rer-ponsiblo government, is a long continued story of the
&jrae struggle.
Now that the fight has been waged and victory achieved In nearly all
civilii-.L-d countries, and men are accorded the full privileges of citizenship,
a free ami secret ballot, and Cull power lo thus choose those who will make
-ind un-mako laws and administer public affairs, what value does the average man place upon this great privilege and right? Women, too, agitated
lor the right lo vote on terms or equality with men, and only at .a comparatively recent date wore accorded that right. What value do they now place
upon it? . -

  i
Decides to - Make Greater Effort to
Attract Them
While .the French are' showing resentment against the presence of
American tourists in France, the Eng>
lish are making a big effort lo attract more of them to England and
hold them there "a longer time.
A "Come to Britain" organization
lias been active for some time. ���TliIs
organization made public figures showing that Americans in 1924 -spent
$250,000,000 in France and only $100,-
000,000 in Britain, rtaly aud other
countries together."
"I Americans only knew," said, one
Knglishman "Britain would -get a far
greater proportion of the tourist traffic. Many go to Wiesbaden and Aix
without ever having heard of I-Iarro-
gato or Llandrindod' Wells, while
Devon is not much more than a name
to them."

With :i general election pending in Canada if became necessary to compile new and up-to-date lists of qualified voters, but it was also necessary in
-all our large centres of population to.plead with and exhort and continually
urge men and women to take;the trouble lo register In order that they might

Why Home
Beer Can Be
BREWING beer at home, a habit that has
become widespread in the United
States since prohibition deprived the people
of the right to purchase pure and healthful
beer legally and openly, presents difficulties and dangers of which those,who
engage in it are rarely aware.
H
OME-BREWED beer can be actually dangerous to those who drink it, for the home

Receives Six Months
Joseph Morgan Shearason of the Enir
erald Isle, better known as "Whiskers"
appeared In police court at Greenwood
on August 23rd before S. B. Hamilton,
S.M., charged with vagrancy. Whiskers pleaded guilty and was sentenced
to 60 days hard labor in the Nelson
goal, and warned not to return to this
district.
Whiskers has given "the police considerable worry for the. past fjw
months. He is suspected of robbing
cabhins of provisions, etc. His habits
are inclined to be much like the deer,
he travels and feeds in the night, and
takes to thej'tall^timbers" in the day
time, making it very difficult for the
police to effect his arrest. He was
eventually run to earth on the East
Fork of the Kettle river at the head of
Christian Valley, by F. Christian and
H. A. Tan tier, ranchers in that locality,_
who turned him over to the police.

usually has no acquaintance with or control over
���;t]ie complex'physical and chemical reactions that
take place in the brewing of beer. Pure beer can
only be made in a modern brewery by scientifically trained brewmasters who have at their disposal the most modern equipment and who are
bound by the most exacting standards..,
THE same materials which, in a modern brewery, are
made into pure, healthful beer, "can become, in-the
hands of a home brewer, a raw, incompletely fermented, indigestible and harmful mixture unfit for consumption. But where an established brewery uses only
the highest grade of material���malt and hops���tested for
purity, the home' brewer is forced to purchase in stores
imported syrup concoctions of inferior malt and lpw:grade
hop extracts frequently blended with synthetic essences.
The product of such mixtures is always harmful to the
stomach and digestive system and dangerous to drink for
'any length of time. "*   .
THE home brewer is hampered not only by lack of
knowledge of the'science of brewing, but home
equipment does not include the elaborate plant necessary for prolonged sterilization and filtering to assure
a pure, healthful beer free from bacterial infection. In
beer that is the product of a perfectly equipped brewery
all fermentation is complete; in home-brewed beer fermentation continues, and continues after it is consumed.
It is really an explosive mixture, whether in your stomach
or in the bottle, as shown by the1 way in which bottles
i .explode and tops are blown off.
HOME-BREWED beers are usually higher in alcoholics content than they should he. In the beers supplied by the
Amalgamated Breweries to the people of British Columbia
through licensed premises or throngrh Government stores the
alcoholic strength Is only 4$�� per cent., the .most favorable
streaffth for tbe stimulation of the stomach toward aiding1
flig-estlon. Home-brewed beers also usually contain greater or
less percentages of deadly fusel oil, from which properly
brewed, stored and aged beers are free.
A ITS" physician can tell of the dangers of home-brewed beer,
from whlob, happily, the people of British Columbia are
free, for they have the privilege of obtaining', pure, good beer
made by the Amalgamated Breweries of British Columbia ln
plants that are equipped with every facility for the browing'
of "pure beer, perfectly flavored, well matured and healthful.
