Buddha Began It
The prohibition agitation which
is thus given great impetus is not
a modern fad. A historian of the
cause named Guy Haler says .that
Buddha began it as long ago as
560 B. C. He enjoined total ab-
stainence upon all true believers,
and ei.ice his day Buddhists,
Mohammedans, Brahmins and
most other eastern sects have been
in the main abstainers. They are
not without compensating vices to
be sure, which their religions
teachers did not specially warn
them against, and it is to be remembered that their abstinence is
due to religious belief wholly. An
early Hindu law-giver, Manu,
issued a drastic edict against drinking, in which he said: "With tbe
drinker of madhoo let no one eat,
no one join in sacrifice, no one
read. With such a wretch let no
one be allied in marriage. Let
him be abject and excluded from
all social privileges. Cast forth as
a vagabond upon the earth, branded with indelible ignominy, he
shall be deserted by his own parents, and associated with by none."
Otherwise he has to be welcomed.
Western Float
Heroism
A citizen walking across Yonge
street at King when the rain was
coming down in torrents saw a
young girl in front of an approaching street car.    He said:
"I stopped in my tracks and in
horror awaited a calamity. In
fancy I saw the child ground to
death beneath the wheels. I felt
powerless and my legs refused to
act: Then I saw a newsboy drop
his papers and rush the child off
her feet. Together they sprawled
on the slippery pavement. A
crowd gathered and the little girl
���someone'-* loved one^was put on
the car and sent home. The boy
gathered his soiled papers under
his arm and ran on shouting.
When spoken to about his brave
act he replied:
"Oh, dat's not'n; de kid was
dazed���dat's all.   Forget itl"

Valued Their Good Opinion
Crumley, the man who robbed
the store at Hindsville and was in
jail here, sawed out of bis cell last
nighe about 9 o'clock. The Hon.
W. T. Stennet, who was in the
same cell for forging a check, refused to go. This morning when
asked why be did not go he said he
said he was afraid the people here
would think hard of him. It is
not often that we get a prisoner in
our jail so considerate of tbe feeling of our townspeople.���Hunta-

True Sympathy
No. 7
We met an Irish bartender the
other day���of the sort that hates
England so that the face takes on
a peculiar expression at the
thought of all things English���
who was pleading passionately
against any reduction in the quantities of Btrong drink manufactured.
"What," he sobbed, "would the
English workingman do without
his beer?"���New York Evening

A Powerful Magnet
A young fellow from the country called on Henry Ford in his
workshop, the other day, and the
manufacturer, not knowing exactly
what to show him, picked up a
powerful magnet and said:     ;^
"That magnet will draw three
pounds of iron from a distance of
two feet. There is no natural
object on the face of the earth that
has more power."
"I dnnno about that, Mr.
Ford" answered tbe young countryman thoughtfully, "I know a
natural object, wrapped in muslin
and frills, that is drawing me
every Sunday evening over 15
miles of plowed fields."

Prohibition has had a good

We notice that the' Molson
Leader credits an editorial of ours
npon advertising to the Cleveland
News. This does not injure the
value of the article in the least.
This summer nearly every backyard in England was a potato
patch. There is more wheat in

ports the suggestion, saying: **I
think you are right about importing Chinese. I have seen them
worked in the west, and they make
admirable miners. It is difficult
to imagine, however, in an Administration so favorable to labor, how
it will be possible to succeed in repealing the anti-Chinese immigration law, although I am heartily in
favor of a trial being made in order
to allow the Chinese to come to
this country."
The other two correspondents
take an opposite view. One, a
Pennsylvania coal-mine superintendent, writes: "Permit me to
say emphatically, No! I am firmly convinced that this type of
labor should be entirely excluded
from this country and not be employed for any purpose whatsoever.
Industrial conditions are bad
enough now, without introducing
an element that would tend to degrade our own laboring classes by
compelling them to compete with
such a class of workers as would
be brought from China. Truly,
the conditions would then be practically unbearable for the common
people dependent on their daily
toil."
The fourth correspondent writing from Alabama, opens by saying: "The proposition is timely
but calte for clear and unbiassed
consideration. You say, 'France
is wise. Wby can't we follow
suit?' Let us follow' the suit of
the British Government and leave
Mr. Chinaman where he belongs���
in China. There is no question
bnt that the present crisis requires
careful study. Much is to be
gained by the adoption of improved
methods, which will often produce phenomenal results."
It may be of interest to have
mentioned that, according to the
Annual report of the Minister of
mines for 1916, out of a total number of 5,060 "hands employed in
and about the coal mines of British Columbia last year, 151 were
Japanese, 622 were Chinese and
5 were Indians.
Soldiers' Commandments
The Cowichan Leader says Ptes.
R. E. Cook, Wilson and G. W.
Roberts are responsible for the
following adaption of the commandments. Pte. Roberts recently
returned from the front to Tzou-
halen.
1. When on guard thon shalt
challenge all parties approaching
thee. m.
2. Thou Bhalt not send any engraving nor any likeness of any
airship in the heavens above, nor
any post card of the earth beneath,
nor of any submarine in the sea,
for the censor visits tbe iniquities
of the offenders with three months'
C. B., but allows mercy unto
thousands by letting their letters
go first who obey these commandments.
3. Thou shalt not use any profane language, unless under extraordinary circumstances, such as
seeing thy mate shot, or getting
petrol in thy tea.
i. Remember the soldier's week
consisti of seven days. Six days
shalt thou do thy duty, and on the
seventh thou shalt do all odd jobs.
5. Honor thy king and country,
keep thy rifle well oiled; shoot
straight, that the days may be
long in the land which the enemy
giveth thee.
6. Thou shalt not kill time.
7. Thon shalt not adulterate thy
mess tin by using it as a shaving
mug.
8. Thou shalt not steal thy comrade's kit.
9. Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy comrade, but preserve silence on his goings and
comings.
10. Thou shalt. not covet thy
corpral's post, nor thy sergeant's
nor thy sergeant-major's, but by
thy duty and perseverance thon
shalt rise to the position of field
marshal!.
Cht this little sermon of Rusk-
ins out, and paste it on the mirror.
Drink less, breathe more; eat less,
chew more; worry less, work more;
wasteless, give more; write less,
read more; talk less, think more;
preach less, practice more.
In California all cafes, saloons,
soda water fountains, etc., have to
sterilize all glasses and dishes after
they bave been used by a customer.
This means that all these things
have to be washed in hot water
after they have been once used.
Chinese Miners
Coal Age, published in New
York City, in an article it printed
in its issue of July 21, mentioned
that its editor, when in Vancouver,
B. C, recently, had seen some
thousands of Chinese en route to
France for employment in doing
necessary work in that country
and added: "France is wise.
Why can't we follow suit?". It
then asked the opinions of its
readers on this question. On the
11th inst. It printed four letters
in reply. One correspondent writing from Cleveland, Ohio, in bis
letter remarked: "The statistical
result of the Chinese labor needs
no further commendation. Their
alertness to learn has been unquestioned for centuries. Much would
I prefer them to the class of importations we have been having for
a number of years past. All the
anarchy we have seen and have
yet to see most be laid at the doors
of Buch importations as have been
brought about by conditions in the
last ten years, and where the end
will be no one can tell. The idea
of destruction of property, common
to our foreign labor, immediately
when they do not get what they
demand is becoming bolder daily,
and the sooner the producing in-
icrests of the United States realize
Sbat a change is necessary the bet-
*.--r it will be; because we are un-
-'.le'to get the old class of English,
rish, Welsh and Scotch miners
who we formerly had. Frauce is
truly wise in the importation of
the Chinese for her coal mines."
Another   correspondent writing
from Cincinnati, Ohio, briefly eup-
Cure For Poison Ivy
Ivy poisoning is caused by an
oil in the plant which is very
poisonous, and which water will
not dissolve, so there is no use in
washing the affected parts with
water. The poison ivy grows in
all parts of the country, and while
many people can handle the plant
without danger of poisoning, others
are very susceptible to tbe poisoning qualities of the plant. Washing the hands in alcohol after coming in contact with the poison ivy
will kill the poison and the poison
is destroyed after it takes effect by
an application of sngar of lead
and alcohol. The solution is made
by dissolving as much sugar of
lead in 70 per cent alcohol as it
will dissolve. This solution should
be applied to tbe affected parts several times a day, and is a sure
cure for this troublesome poisoning.	
Don't Stop
Does Advertising Pay
When someone stops advertising,
Someone stops buying.
When someone stops buying,
Someone stops selling.
When someone stops selling,
Someone stops making,
When someone stops making,
Someone stops earning.
Everybody stops buying.
Keep going.
Bradstreete have compiled statistics that prove that 84 per cent of
tbe failures are among the non-
advertisers. The merchant who
does not believe in the use of printers ink has never advertised right.
The failure to produce results is
not chargeable against advertising,
but against the manner in which
it is done. Advertising is the modern creative force, positive and
potent���a force that has' produced
two blades of grass where bnt one
has grown before. It is the flowering of industrial evolution. It is
the conqueror of unfair competition���the promoter of right dealing
���the solution of the mail order
problem. Its basic principle is
frankness.���N. Y. Journal.'
