There would be little resistance
to conscription in Quebec if all the
clergy in that province were in
favor of it, and the politicans were
marooned outside of the cable
limit. There would still be. less
resistence to the draft, if Kaiser
Bill would proBpest the pea-soup
formation with a few of his iron-
crossed terriers. If Germany wins
the war, nothing, not even holy
water, could save Quebec from
.conscription. Bill would handle
that, question without using soft
soap, marsh mellows or conified
icecream. Evidently Bill's agents
and boosters have been busy in
Quebec since poBt bellum days.
It is sometimes necessary to go
away from home to get news, true
or otherwise. In Sandon the other
day, we learned that last winter
we had died of starvation in
Jaurez, Mexico. At New Denver
we learned that it was on fehe
Somme we had gone over the dump
of oblivion to push cloudB with the
angels, until reincarnation day.
At Kaslo it wa3 reported that we
had joined the church, and married
a widow in Los Angeles worth over
a million dollars. In Silverton we
discovered that while chasing a delinquent subscriber, who was fleeing to South America, we had fallen out of a biplane and been swallowed by a whale in the Pacific
ocean. After a thorough investigation we are pleased to say that
none of these reports are true.
Going Backward
The following advice to girls is
given by Rev. A. E. Cook of Vancouver:
"The latest product of civilization is the modern city, but the
latest product is not necessarily the
finest. The finest product of civilization, the very flower of the
human race, is a beautiful girl
blossoming out into radiant, lovely,
cultured womanhood. The moral
life of any city can best be tested
by the position its young womanhood occupies in public esteem and
the influence it exerts on social
life.
I counsel every young woman to
be exceedingly careful of the
friendship she forms. Friendship
is the greatest social force in the
world, and when a young girl
makes a new friend she has definitely turned her face toward
heaven or hell. Twenty enemies
cannot do you as much harm as
one friend. Be careful even of
those 'who are introduced to you
by other acquaintances. There
are hundreds of young man who
seek introductions to girls from unworthy motives aud evil designs.
They want to flirt with them, to
make them the toy of their idle
hours, and then to brag of their
conquests to their boon companions. There are others with still
more sinster designs, who hide
under the cloak of false gentility
the heart of a wolf and the passions of the tiger. Every girl is
fair game to them. They lay their
plans with the subtlely of serpents.
Woe betide the the trusting girl
who believes in their friendship or
submits to their slimy touch. Her
fate is sealed. The outworks of
her honor have been carried and
the citadel of her character will
soon be stormed. A police inspector assures me that 65 per cent of
the girls who strike up acquaintances witn men on the street end
up in the police station. The girl
who goes riding with strangers in
autos is putting her honor afe the
mercy of thieves.
Such An Intelligent Dog
There was, once upon a time, an
old lady who rented a furnished
villa for the summer, and with fehe
villa a large dog also went.
In the sitting room of the villa
there was a comfortable arm-chair.
The old lady liked this chair better than any other in the house.
She always made for ife the first
thing. But, alas! she nearly always found the chair occupied by
the large dog.
Being afraid of the dog, she
never bid it harshly to get out of
fehe chair, as she feared ife might
bite her, but instead she would go
to the window and call "cats."
Then the dog would rush to fehe
window and bark, and the old lady
would slip into  the  chair quifeely.
One day the dog entered the
room and found the old lady in
possession of fehe chair, He strolled
over to fehe window and, looking
oufe, appeared much excited and
set up a tremendous barking.
The old lady arose and hastened
to the window to Bee what waB the
matter, and the dog climbed quietly into the chair.
The man who   cannot make a
mistake never tried.
In a speech at Walla Walla,
Dr. H. S. Williams found much
fault wifeh the United States declaring thafe:
Civilization is going backward,
not forward.
Interest iu scientific subjects is
overshadowed by interest in the
trivial.
Ninety-seven oufe of every hundred practically commit suicide by
overeeting, failing to take care of
themselves, etc., leaving but three
to die of old.age.
The mental standard is lower;
America today is the mosfe illiterate of big nations, one in two iu
New York being unable to read
and write.
Americans are dishonest���they
sacrifice everything to speed and
turn out shoddy goods.
Newspapers give space to sensations and little to scientific discoveries and progress.
Public tastes are lower in everything.
The civil war was blamed by the
speaker for much of this. The
brightest men were killed off, leaving the less bright in many instances to keep tbe race going.
The results are just now being felt
in the lack of brilliant minds and
the general run-down condition.
He suggested that in the selective draft fehe brightest men be
left afe home and fehat the others be
taken to war. Mental hygiene,
proper exercise, diet and a cultivated taste for better things were
urged to combat fehe conditions as
they are.
He also held out the hope that
consumption and other so-called
incurable diseases would soon be
cured, aa a remedy has been found
that has proven successful during
tests extending over two and a half
years.
About Eggs
A million eggs a day is the
amount usually consumed by
Great Britian in normal times although the consumption at the
present time has been greatly diminished as many of the sources of
supply have been cut off on account
of the war.
At the present time Canada
needs every egg that it is possible
for the hens ta lay and ife is important that these eggs should be
of the best and that they should
be infertile so that they will keep
well dnring the hot weatber.
The breeding season for poultry
is over and it is important thafe all
poultry keepers should dispose of
or isolate the breeding males.
Some people think that the hens
will not lay so well if there is no
male bird present but this is not
the case as iu most cases the presence of male fowls tends to decrease, not increase, the egg yield.
It was estimated that last year
over $3,000,000 were lost in Canada through fertile eggs being
marketed. A temperature of a
little oyer 70 degrees will start in
cubation and this temperature is
often considerably exceeded in the
grocery store windows. In nine
cases out of ten when fertile eggs
are exposed to this heat incubation
will start.
This loss can be eliminated by
removing the male bird. Infertile
eggs may become Btrong and musty
when exposed feo unpleasant odors
bnfe they can never get into the
condition in which fertile eggs are
often found to be when broken by
fehe consumer.
