through the disclosures of thc army
medical boaids, thc necessity of further safeguarding thc health of thc
people, and Governments everywhere
arc devoting attention to the subject. In the army emphasis was laid
on the fact that the educated man
was a better soldier than thc uneducated one, so the army conducted
schools to tiach illiterate men to read
aud write. The effect of a man's
moial standards on his whole character soon displajcd itself. The cumulative effect has been to impress on
the nations certain facts aud important lessons which, iu thc general
industrial and commercial race after
the dollar before the war, people
were largely ignoring.
Before tlu war there was one great
organization which had not lost
sight of the importance of developing thc all-round man, a man strong
in spirit, mind and body. During thc
war such an organization inevitably
came into greater prominence , aud
found open to it a still greater field
of activity and usefulness. ���Tlic reference is to llu V.M.C.A. But whereas prior to thc war its cneigics wcic
largely confined lo the cities and
larger town?, the necessity for thc
expansion of its woik to thc smallei
towns, villages aud country parts is
now seen, with thc result that a Town !

Wealth in Arctic  Regions
Stefansson    Has    Plan    to    Develop
Wool, Milk and Meat Industry
Ottawa. ��� Vilhajalnuir ijiefansson,
the Canadian Arctic explorer, in an
address before a larne attendance of
members of pailiainent and scnatois
in the railway committee room, presented a scheme for converting the
Arctic and sub-Arctic legions of Canada into a great wool, milk and meat
pioducing  area.
Mr. Stefansson icccntlv submitted
the proposal to Hon. Arthui Mcighcn,
minister of the interior, whose department administers the natural resources of thc north and it was then
thought advisable that Mi. Stcfafis-
son should address the senators and
members upon the subject.
At the conclusion of thc address
Mr. Mcighcn said the government
would considei the proposal.
/.The Stefansson .scheme involves thc
introduction of huge, herds of iein-
deer into lhc Canadian north and thc
domestication and development of
largc herds of uniskox. Both these
animals will furnish a milk and meal
supply. The muskox in addition, will
furnish a  wool  supply.

(Eph. 2:4-10).
Grace brings salvation; it docs not
send il. Jesus Christ, who is the embodiment of God's love and grace,
came bringing salvation with him. In
order to apprehend what the grace of
God has done, observe:
1. Man's natural state (Eph. 2:1-3).
In the natural man is found all that
is opposed lo the will and purpose
of God. (1) Dead in trespasses and
sins (v. 1). The supreme need of thc
dead man is life, therefore hc musl
have lifc from without himself. The
characiciislic of one who is dead is
that he is fa) without sensation���
"past feeling." (4:19). The natuial
man, thcrefoic, ran neither love God
nor hate sin until hc is made alive,
(b) Without motion. Activity is thc
demonstration of life. So far as God
and holiness are concerned thcy arc
motionless. They are as helpless as
Lazarus was in thc grave. (2) Under
the control of fleshy and worldly lusts
(v. 2). The carnal nature holds sway
over lhcir lives. (3) Under the domination of Satan (v. 2). All uiiregcn-
cralc men and women are ruled by
Satan. Since hc i.s the god of this
age (2 Cor. 4:4), the prince of this
world (John 12:31) all who havc not
been freed by Christ are under the
rule of Satan. (4) Under lhc condemnation and wrath of God (v. 3).
Over all these���death, vvorldlincss,
disobedience, lust of the flesh���hangs
thc vvialh and condemnation of God.
2. Man's slate by grace   (2:4-10).
(1) Hc is alive iu Christ (v. 5). The
Holy Spirit lays hold upon men dead
in sin    and   quickens them into lifc.
(2) Kaiscd up wilh Christ (v. 6).
God's grace not only makes lost men
alive but raises them up with Christ.
(3) Association with Christ in glory
(v. d). Christ's incarnation has so
identified himself with the race that
those vvho aie saved are niiscd up to
bc with Christ and shall ultimately
share his glory.- The actuating principle of God which moved him to
thus lay hold upon lost men is his
love (v. 4). Alan's salvation is due
entirely to God's giace. Nol only thc
salvation has been provided in graco
but thc faith which appiopiiates il is
God's gift (v. 8). -Works as grounds
of salvation arc absolutely   excluded.
(4) The purpose of God in the salvation of men (v. 7, 10). (a) It is ��� lo
display his grace in the coming ages.
The demonstration lo the inhabitants
of the spheres in which sin has ..not
entered, in the ages to comc, will bc
thc transformation of dead and lost
men and their exaltation with Christ,
(b)- to glorify God through their
good works (v. 10: cf. Matt. 5:16).
While good works have absolutely no

aid the big Canadian' fruit growers to
conserve the products of their vast
orchards. At lhc outbreak of the
war government experts were endeavoring lo find some way of -harvesting, packing and shipping thc crop
overseas that would avoid thc heavy
loss from rotting-. ��� Solid and sound
apples aud pears, picked and handled
with care, reached their destination in
Great Britain,-in many instances, unfit fo'r the market. Thc largest -oi-
chards arc in Alberta, Saskatchewan
and Manitoba.
Thc experts began tlicir search for
a remedy in lhe soils, in thc trees
and in thc. methods of culture/* Thcy
could discover nothing wrong in
these respects, Finally they decided
it was a question- of temperature of
the fruit at the time of packing. Thcy
experimented with thc spraying systems to reduce tlic temperature of
the fruit after,it was picked. ^ This
proved unsatisfactory as it was impossible to.; produce an even temperature-throughout the individual fruit
without the cxpeiulitiirc of more labor than"thc results warranted.- It
was finally decided that it was impossible to pick and-pack thc fruit in
thc day time and expect thc most
satisfactory results.
After nine o'clock at.night the fruit
was at a - proper temperaturc for
packing as soon as picked. Thc question therefore resolved itself into thc
economic lighting of thc vast orchard
areas to enable thc work to bc done
during thc night hours.' Torches and
other lighting ideas- were used but
proved unsatisfactory.
Last summer an electric -company
in Saskatchewan solved the- problem
for the orchards along its lines by
supplying the necessary current and
renting movable floodlighting units
such as arc used by railroad and
street contracting night gangs. Thc
platr worked splendidly ;.nd thc fruit
growers report that the.r losses from
rotting wcrc negligible while thcy
found it fa;- easier to Sulvc their la--
bor problems because of the unique
working  conditions.

Through the Use of a Blood-

Debility is a loss of vitality not
affecting any - one -part of thc body
particularly, but thc system generally, ll is dangerous because it reduces
thc body's resistance to disease.
When debility follows acute disease1:;
convalescence is slow, and one's
strength docs_ not return as it should.
An attack of influenza often results in
debility that pcrsisl's for months.
Everybody recognizes that the remedy for debility is to build up the
blood, because the blood goes to
every part, of thc,body, and any improvement in its condition is quickly
fell throughout thc system.
Tn cases of simple anaemia, or dc-
bility following acute diseases such
as fevers* or influenza, Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills will bc found valuable, because they really build up" the blood
aud-strcngthen thc nerves. There is
no other medicine as valuable for
growing children, and for-men and
women whose nervous energy has
been overdrawn. Thcy are worth :i
fair trial in" every case where thin
blood and weak nerves havc started
the trouble . The value of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills has been proved in
thc home of Mrs. John -Fram, Owen
Sound, who says: "My daughter
Mablc ��� was troubled with a bad
cough; shc "was pale, weak and her
appetite was very'poor, indeed I fear:
cd that shc was going into xi decline.
A friend advised the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills and after taking
eight boxes she was again enjoying
the best of health. AgaiiMast autumn

and aftcr the acute symptoms were
past, both myself and another daughter were left very much run down.
My daughter was so weak that shc
could not walk fo school and would
tremble when shc got upon her feel.
[ was so weak myself that 1 could not
do my housework. Again wc resorted
to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and in
each case wc took five boxes, when
we wcrc as well as ever we had been.
I never enjoyed better health than I
am now doing, and am able again to
do my housework. -After our experience it is not possible for ine to say
too much in favor of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills." ,      ���

Canada's Best Place
Is In the Empire
General Currie Says That Is Where
the Dominion's Future Lies
London. ��� General Currie, commander of thc Canadian expeditionary
corps, speaking at a Canadian pay-
corps dinner; said: "I believe Canada
will get everything in the future better inside of thc British empire than
outside. So we can go home with a
greater sense of nationalism-than ever
before. We havc all been away from
Canada many months and are all
more or less unfamiliar with Canadian thought and sentiment. Thcy are
wondering what thc Thought and
se"ntimeul of Canadian soldiers will
bc. I can say it will bc anything
which is for the good of thc country.
Our men have lived a-little closer to
their Maker. Discipline is only a
self-control v.hich makes you do thc
right  thing."
General MacDonucl remarked that
Canada had given soldiers for an imperial military enterprise on an average every twenty ycars. "I don't
know what is going'to become of thc
older men who have thrown themselves in,"-hc declared. "I go down and

. Mrs. Maud Pepoon, wife of
Henry Pepoon, a farmer on Blue
Clay creek, Missouri, got up on the
morning of _December 18 and proceeded to search her. husband's
trousers, as-was her usual custom,,
but instead.of finding the customary collection^f small change, she
grasped a giant bullfrog, says a
Hardy; Ark., despatch to the Sfe
Louis Times.,.
"Her"wild shrieks"-woke her husband, who leaped from his bed, intending to tell her it was alia joke,
but she had already had rushed.out
of the door and into the adjoining
woods, still screaming.
. Pepoon pursued her, and both
might haye been running yet had
not their wild flight been suddenly
halted by a big black bear rushing
ferociously in the opposite:direction. .     :, '"   X.X-iX   .X \ .." fi-yXX

The world's production of silver"
fell from 226,000,000 ounces in

the 350,000,000 ounces melted and

what price the government will be
able to replace this metal is uncertain, and it is not known that
there is a source from which this
quantity may be obtained immediately. ^
Prominent metal dealers are
quoted as saying the supply will

Lord Reading said in an after

"The war has done one,good

"I heard a story about our snobbishness the other day. A duchess

just deceaeed, who had subscribed
liberally to her charities:
"Poor, dear Sir Thomas," she
said. ."So he's dead, is he? Poor

.A .teacher ^ was reading the

the  oldest  good story is the one
about the boy who left the farm and
got a job in the city.    He  wrote a
letter   to   his   brother,   who   had
elected to stick by the farm, telling
of the joys of city life, in which he
said:    "Thursday we   autoed out
to the conntry club where we golfed
until   dark.      Then   we trolleyed
back   to   town   and danced  until
dawn.    Then  we motored   to the
beach and Friday ed  there."    The
brother on  the  farm  wrote back:
"Yesterday we  buggied  to   town
and baseballed all afternoon.  Then
we went to Ned's and pokered till
morning.   To-day we muled out to
"the cornfield   and   geehawed   till
