The Family Herald and Weekly Star oi Montreal is having the

not confuse that   great   weekly
with a small daily paper of similar   name  now   in   liquidation.
There is no fear of such a thing
happening    with    the    Family
Herald.     The   word   "Family"
should not be obmitted  in the
address of that paper.   We are
informed that their offer  of  a
War Album free  to all  who subscribe still remains good, but the
demand is so great that it may
haye to be withdrawn soon.   The
Family Herald is big value and
the Album is most attractive, so
it is no wonder they  are securing
thousands of new subscribers.

Th$ Precious Ruby
Is Ten Times More Valuable   Than
Diamond
The world's ruby centre is Mogofc,
in Upper Burma, sonic sevent}' miles
north of Mandalay in India. Hare
arc the great ruby mines, one of
Burma's most valuable monopolies.
Indeed, not only does this country
produce the iinest of these coveted
gems, but they are recovered in such
quantities as to enable her to dominate  the market.
Few  are    aware    that,  weight  for
weight, a ruby is more valuable than
a  diamond.  Jt  is  estimated that  one
the color of pigeon's blood, weighing
five   cara.ls,  will  sell    for    ten   times !
the value of a diamond of the -same j

Four other brothers are in thi
French army. The mother, daughter
and boy were forced lo remain within the German lines and witness the
day-by-day conversion of lhcir property into a German club bouse.
During these four years the Iwo women endeavored lo placate rather
than to antagonize their captors.
Froni German officers who frequented thc ' farm the young woman
learned information which she recognized to be of thc utmost importance. AVlien shc heard lhc barrage
she determined to run the risk ol
crossing the nearly three miles separating her home from the allied
lines.
Telling her mother and the others
lhat she had work to do in the .garden, the young woman left the
house. She slipped away toward the
American lines, although every road
was swept by allied and German
gunfire. After many difficulties and
narrow cjcapcs the young woman
reached the' A ni cricaii' lilies and told
her story.
In return- for the information she
brought she asked that every- effort

them in desperate fighting. ;'

The keeper of a restaurant frequented by Bcrlincrs when taking
their outings in thc suburbs raises
the following plaint in the Berliner
Tagcblatl:
"You have no idea what our guests-
carry away with them. Wc cannot
hand out teaspoons without demanding a guarantee sum beforehand.
Drinking glasses are stolen more
than anything else. When I; took
stock in March I counttrd 352 glasses,
but a week after Whitsuntide T had
only sixty:foiir"left. It is eniite thc
same with coffee pots_; I have lost 152.
enamelled pots. Knives, ,,forks and
spoons disappear in the same way
without number?
"A short time ago I handed'iout a
dinner of eight portions. As the party
appeared to be rich people arid ran
up a big bill, the waiter did not remove the things immediately after
thcy had finished. When he did so
a little later he found that the knives,
forks and spoons- had disappeare*
from all thc covers but two. That is
only one example, from many. Under; these circumstances, thc prohibition "of the use of tablecloths and
napkins came as a read godsend for
us. If it had not come, there would
soon have been not a scrap of table
liiien p.inong all us restaurant keepers. It goes without saying that
keepers who try to keep poultry or
other smalt animals suffer from
thieving attacks."

T isn't the body that craves rest, but
the mind.
������When.you are bodily tired you can
usually fall to sleep at the first opportunity.
But when the nerves arc irritated by
anxiety and worry rest and��pleep seem to
be impossible.
The mind seems to be most alert, and
you are thinking, thinking, thinking-
first of one thing and then of another���
often matters of little or ho-.importance.
But you simply cannot sleep.
Sleeplessness is the most common and
often: the first indication of a/breaking..;
dovyn'of ithorieryous /system;/-'-'. XiXXiXxXxx--
The object of sleep is to allow the body
to rebuild tissue and the nerves:to recover
tone.   Sleep is the ideal condition for this
"Process; //;;������./���/���/���'/ ;.-.:;,//.-���
//���/ If/you/cannot sleep you worry, and
worry' breaks down nerve cells at a tre-
mendous rate, so that instead of laying up
nerve force for the demands /of the day
you are using/up.the reserve. . V
:///;The;nerve centres are sometimes liken-/
ed to storage batteries// If you/continue;
to consume""the nervous energy in reserve*
without paying back, these centres become
sooner or later depleted, and you find your-
Belf/a-nerypuii wreck.
;/ /After; a sleeplesa nigfit you ffet up
feeling tire<l and lacking in mental energy..
Your day's v:ork seems more than you
can face, .-.and yon become down-hearted
and';-.-discouraged.
The future is not bright, for you must*
realize that the natural result is exhausted
nerves, paralysis, locomotor. ataxia or
some form of helplessness.
In Dr. Chase's Nerve Food is found the
most natural and the most rational treatment for the nerves imaginable, because
this food cure contains the vital substances v/hich go to the building up of the
blood and the depleted 'nerve cells.
Z;I)r.:,/Gha'se's Nerve, Food does not in-
/duce sleep, but it does restore the nei-vous
system, and after you have been using it
for a few days you will begin to find yourself resting and sleeping naturallj\
A little patience is necessary if your
nervous system is greatly exhausted, but
you will be encouraged by the benefits obtained to keep up the treatment until the
exhausted nerves are fully restored, and
you feel the energy ahd snap which means
success and happiness.

The K ng and His Cousin
George V. Most Deeply Attached to
,...'.. Former Czar
King George is sajd by some who
probably know nothing about it, to
have: been-deeply-overcome when lie
learnt of the assassination of thc cx-
czar. Of all the inoiiarchs in liurope
it was to his. cousin, thc Czar, that he
was most deeply attached: their personal intimacy was close, we are as1
sured on thc same authority, lt will
be remembered at thc time of the
revolution that it was staled how
anxious King George personally was
to offer immediate hospitality to the
deposed emperor, but was reluctantly compelled to perceive how_ impossible such a step would be diplomatically. ,That. does not tend" to al-
' leviatc His Majesty's grief. It is violating no secret, to say. that the king
never extended to the Tsarina any
greater measure of friendship than
due courtesy. His affection was. concentrated on  her husband.
Those Rich, Heavy Silks
Few women who are proud of the
fact that they wear hosiery, underwear and dresses made of silk realize that old ti.. cans contribute from
20 to 30 pod cent, in weight to the
glossy "silks worn by them, says the
Popular Science Monthly. The price
of silk has increased enormously and
to be able to sell heavy silks at a
price that would yield a reasonable
profit, and yet be within the ..means
of tlic average purchasers,- the manufacturers resort to the practice of
weighting''''the silk with tin tetrachloride, derived from tin cans.  Five

Hundreds  of Repatries    Sent
SIunIj Back to France
wholesale j    "Every  morning and  every    even-
jing,    week ends   excepted,    a    train
crosses tbe German  frontier and  cn-
I ters the station at Bale, whicli is ou
the right side of thc  Rhine.   It contains from six to seven hundred  repatries, being the women and children,    thc    aged    and  infirm    of  the
occupied  parts of  France.      As    the
train noisily clatters (remember they
are short of grease in -Germany) into
lhc    station,    its    occupants      begin
cheering, singing,    aud waving    their
j handkerchiefs,'   but    thc    cheers are
(never a  success;    they  unexpectedly
>: break off into sobs,    and the    hand-
i kerchiefs  are  withdrawn  rather  sud-
jdenly,"     says    a   writer in thc New
Statesman,,   describing     opinion    hi

hours of pottering about before getting into another train���a clean,
French train, for France.
"The repatries arc looked after
while iu Bale by local, therefore German-Swiss Red Cross women, of
whom there are fifty to each train,
working two or three shifts awctk.

Tin: turkoj' hung high last week,

Tins week a great many people
are busy paving the way to Hades,
EunorK is asking for meat. We
are willing that it should have our
share.
All   "Arctic     explorers     before
Stefansson  always governed their
operations by the amount  of food
taken with them, the general   rule
to go no further north than  half
their food supplies would serve for.
Stefansson   adopted   a new   plan,
that of depending on the natural
food supply of the Par North.    Because of the  loss of the ship Kar-
luk, with all its stores, Stefansson
and  his men   were forced  to put
bhe food theory to a more rigid test
than thoy had intended.    Indeed,
for the greater part of five years
they subsisted  almost  entirely on
animals and fish.    On  their bill of
fare were polar bears,  seals,   reindeer, tfuiak ox, and wolvea.    Only
one of the party oblected  to wolf
meat, and that on the ground that
it was against the  dietary  laws in
the Book   of   Deuteronomy;   the
others declared that the wolf meat
was the best food they had.   They
laughed to scorn tbe idea that tbe
Arctic regions are barren,   and declared that, in a sense, it is easier
to make a living up in  the Arctic
region  than  in  a place like New
York City.

had nothing but crow for his

Nothing to strike but a gait,
Everything moves that goes.
Nothing at all but conimonsense
Can ever withstand these woes.

It is a fuuy thing to see the
cows at work in Korea as well as
the oxen. When we think of
Mooley and Sukey and Mrs. Jersey, it is of the fine milk and butter they will give us. But it is
not this wav in Korea. Milk and
butter are almost unknown in the
native homes of Korea.
A Korean might keep a dozen
cows, but if you asked him for
milk he would look at you in
amazement. His cows are to carry
great loads of wood or farm products to market, or to haul the
big, lumbersome two-wheeled carts
or the ungainly log plow. Just
thiak of-it! No milk, no butter,
no cheese!: Too bad, isn't it?
"Yet," writes a medical missionary, "it is doubtless a wise thing
for Korea, where no heed is paid
to sanitary laws. Milk, being one
of the most dangerous mediums for
bacteria, it is no.doubt best, after
���all, that the Korean, with" no re-,
gard whatever * for tha laws of
health, has never learned to use
it." Now the doctors are telling
us that even scarlet fever is traceable to impure milk, as it contains
the very germ���with a long unpronounceable name���that is present in scarlet fever.    This is why,
they reason, the disease Is almost
unknown in sections where raw
milk is little ueed, especially in
the tropics.
A Korean seeing butter used in
a missionary home, expressed his
loathing. To him it was not only
a "disgustible mess,'-' but it was
made from calf feed (milk).
Neither does tlie Korean eat beef
tb any extent. His cows are too
nseful as beasts of burden to be
'slaughtered.
A missionary, reaching his sta^
tion in one of the interior towns of
Korea expressed a desire to purchase a milch cow for the use of
his family. ; The Koreans to whom
he expressed his desire were
amazed, No euch thing had ever
been heard of around there, tbey
told him. No cow had ever had
milk drawn from her udder by
human hand. That was the calf'B
business. What was more, no
cow .wonld put up with it.
Undismayed, the missionary proceeded to select a cow with a
young calf. '-There's trouble coming to you," the man from whom
he purchased told him.
The moment the hand of the
milker pressed upon the cow's
udder, her hiud feet flew into the
air. Her feet were then roped,
and head and tail were held by the
missionary's native helpers; one
clinging'to each horn. Finding it
inapo=sibIe to get rid of that hatefnl
j hand, pulling away at her teats,
by either, horn: or "hoof; : she: stood
tremblingand bellowing incessantly, every,iuch.of her body.-, an put-

An American spending his holidays in County Roscommon. Ireland, fell into a conversation with
a farmer who waa feeding his hens:
"I guess, Pat, you havan'fe as good
hens here as we bave in the States?
"Perhaps not." said Pat. "I'll
tell you," said the Yankee, "about
a hen my mother had. She went
out one day and ate a feed of corn
and returned and laid twelve eggs.
She went out fehe next day and ate
a feed of corn, and laid 12 more
eggs. She went oufe the third day
and returned and laid twelve more
eggs. She went out tha fourth
day and hatched seventy-two
chicks out of the thirty-six egge.
Now thafe is the kind of hens we
have in the States." "Well,"
said Pat. ' 'I'll tell you about a
half-blind hen my mother had.
She ate a feed of sawdust, thinking
it was oatmeal'; she went to her
nest and laid a plank 12 feet long,
Again on tbe second day she ate
more sawdust, and laid another
plank twelve feet long On the
third day she ate more sawdust,
and laid another twelve foot plank.
She sat on the three planks and
hatched three kitchen chairs, a
sofa, one table, a mahogany chest
of drawers. "Now" said Pat,
with a twinkle in his eye, ' 'that is
the kind of hen we have in Roscommon.
