Cure for Influenza
Sir,���following is a remedy for
influenza which should prove x��f
interest just at this time:
Ingredients���Pure phenol, Calvert's No. 1 (prepared for internal
use,) 24 drops in an 8 oz. bottle
of water, well mixed.
Dose���Two tablespoonfuls in a
wine glass of water three times in
24 hours. Children, half the dose.
One dose will be enough to prevent; three doses to cure. The
dose to prevent should not be
taken till the symptoms of influenza, (cold, chill, pains, etc ) show
themselves; then one dose will prevent it in less than half an hour.
This receipt came originally from
a physician in the West Indies,
who used it as a.remedy in malarial and other fevers. It came into
my possession from the Rev. A.
Q-. Edwards, vicar of St. Stephen's
Nurbury, W. Croydon, England.
To my knowledge it .has been used
in scores of cases of influenza,
without a single failure.

Canadian  Railway  Troops Can Fight

Singular testimony how Canadian railway troops can light as well

story regarding the conferment of a

Clarke of Toronto.
"Jn an attack lasting four days he
organized sixteen Lewis gun teams
irom his battalion, making all arrangements for thc ammunition to be
brought on our lorries," says the Ga-
zctttc. This unit was entirely self-

1915 the average flax production acreage of the three prairie provinces
was 1.215,000 acres, producing about

practically went to waste, as usual. Is
Ontario to develop a paltry 70,000

Rigid  Economy  Necessary

The following cable has been
transmitted to Canada from the food
controllers'  conference in  London:
''Resolved that while the increased
production of the United Slates and
Canada rendered it possible to relax some of the restrictions which
have borne with peculiar hardships
upon all our people, yet it is absolutely necessary that rigid economy
and elimination of waste in the consumption and handling of all food
stuffs, as well as increased production, should be maintained throughout thc European allied countries
-and in North America; that it is only
by such economy and elimination of
waste that the transportation of thc
necessary men and supplies from
North America to the European front
can be:accomplished, and stocks of

A Battlefield Meeting
New  York Woman Taking  Care   of
Wounded Son
A New York woman attached to
the American Red Cross happened to
be in Paris and volunteered to help
in taking care of the wounded coming
in from thc battlefield. Shc was
working busily when startled by a
loud cry  of "Mother!"
Turning, she saw her son, a young
lieutenant in thc United States army.
He had been wounded in the leg by
shrapnel. The iirst news she had
had that her son was engaged in thc
battle was when she heard his cry.
She obtained permission to accompany him to a hospital. After seeing
that he was attended lo she wewi
back to the station to cheer, as she'
said, the boys who had no hope of
finding a mother to welcome  them.
The mother is a prominent social
worker in Ncw York and has been
doing Red Cross relief work among
the refugees in France. Her w-ork
usually keeps her in the south of

and seldom, if-ever, with any reiicf.
Dr. J. D. Kellogg's Asthma Remedy,
despite its assurance of benefit, costs
so little that it is within the reach of
all. It is the national remedy for

Only Given Two Hours
Pathetic  Story  of the End    of    U
Given two hours in which to prepare for the end, Nicholas Romanoff,
former Russian emperor, was taken
out by his executioners in a state of
such collapse that it was necessary
to prop him against a post, says the
Lokal Anzciger, of Berlin, which-
claims to liavc received from a high
Russian personage an account of the
emperor's last hours.
Nicholas was awakened at 5 o'clock
on the morning of thc day of his execution by a patrol of a non-cimmis-
sioned officer and six men. He was
told to dress and was then taken to
a room where the decision of the
Socict council was communicated _ to
him. He was informed the execution
would bc carried out in two hours.
The former emperor, it is added,
received the announcement of the
sentence of death with great calmness. He returned to his bedroom
and collapsed in a chair. After a
few minutes hc asked for a priest,
with whom he was allowed to remain unattended. Subsequently fie
wrote several letters.
When the escort arrived to take
him to the place of execution, Nicholas attempted to rise from his chair,
but was not able. The priest and
a soldier were obliged to help hiin
get to his feet. The condemned man
descended the stairs with difficulty
and once he fcH down.
As lie.was unable to stand without
support when the place of execution
was reached he was propped against
a post. He raised his hands and
seemed   to    be   trying to speak, btit
ed by the latter    in

Catarrhal Deafness Cannot be Cured

��� is a logical development of his birth
jand environment.  Hc  is well  cducal-
icd and can talk well, but often docs
' so foolishly.    He is vain.    He thinks
he looks like his ancestor,  Frederick
the Great, and in  point of fact there
is a  marked  resemblance  about    the
face of the crown prince lo  the picture   of the    great     Frederick.       Ue

A Deed of Mercy
The Savage  Darkness in Which  Out-
Days are  Plunged
As Hindenburg and the kaiser camc'lls t:oaI ,ast
down, as we read, from Mont d'Hiver,
during the recent offensive, lliey saw
on the edge of a crater two wounded
Britisii soldiers. The kaiser ordered
that thcy should be cared for; their
wounds were hound up and they were
given'      brandy,        and brought
round from unconsciousness. That is
thc German account of it, and it maybe true.    It was a kindly act.
Probably  had it nol  been  for  this,
the two men would havc died amoin
those desolate craters; no one would
have known and no one could have
been blamed for it.

Would the Zecbrnggc victory have
I been what it was had her stokehold
(not been filled with heroes? An old
ship with old boilers but needing,
above all things else, speed, especially on the home run, she was at the
mercy of her stokers and engineers.
A bump told them the Vindictive had
gained the Mole. Not much else was
known about the fortunes of the day
until  home was reached.
It is said that when the engineer
commander entered the boiler room
and asked the artificer engineer what
he had to say about his men the reply was what every one of them
must have rejoiced to hear: "I am
not going lo say anything for or
against them; but if I was going to
hell tomorrow night 1 would have
the same men with me."
Admiral Sir David Bcalty knows
where to find heroes and he says
that high up on the roll of British
heroes must be placed the. names of
the engineers and their staffs on
board ships of war. .Equally heroic
