 tesitiatt  $a *S*^  ve  ^seeoiA  ARE YOU ON OUR LIST?  NO! WHY ?  17 '���������  SUBSCRIPTION $1 A YEAR  IN ADVANCE  Vancouver City, Mount Pleasant, South Vancouver and The Province  VOLUME II  VANCOUVER. British Columbia,   OCT.  28  1916.  mm^m.  No. 25  LICENSE VICTUALERS  BECOMING ALARMED  Their Own Press Admit Danger ��������� Desparate Efforts  i To Hold Public Opinion.  The continual cry that is.heard abroad in the land that "local  ���������option" and "prohibition" only increases the amount of liquor consumed, is so palpably false that it is scarcely worthy of comment,  but so persistent has this cry become and so assiduously are the  license victuaiers circulating it that it is actually arousing the apprehension of some timid souls.     ^  It only requires a moment's thought.to convince any level-,  leaded person that the fear is groundless, for, if it were so, the  ilceijs*> vietualer would be holding a jubilee, instead of working  day and night to defeat temperance legislation.  V The following is an extract from Mr. T. M. Gilmore's stateT  ment in the Bonfort Wine and Spirit Circular. New York. The  article is headed: "Can the Liquor Bunnell be Successfully Defended Before the Bar of Public Sentiment?":  "The big majority in the recent Tennessee election^ given to  the Republican and against the regular Democratic nominees was  ;������n echo of the State-wide prohibition fight and of the killing of  Carmack, and whether we like it o\\ not, it must be accepted as a  further protest of the people of Tennessee against the liquor traffic, as the people of Tennessee know, or think they know, that  traffic. A  "In Texas we find a very large majority polled in favor pf  submitting a constitutional amendment prohibiting the manufacture  and sale of liquors, to a vote of the people.  "In Missouri, in obedience to a demand from the people, a fight  is on to amend the constitution and prohibit the liquor business.  "In Florida a similar .fight is being waged and in several other  States, like Nebraska, the liquor question is the leading question in  politics. y-.7 ������������������������������������ ..'..  - k k>   ,     ::7-:"  "To the States where the liquor traffic is being, attacked by  ���������well-organized movements must be added the States, like Oklahoma, Georgia. Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, and North Carolina, where it has been outlawed, Jf <we would realize how tremendous is the movement and how vast tne forces iswom to the destruction of every brewery and distillery in America.  i "The situation is a grave one, and it demands the attention  -of the men who have hundreds of millions invested in breweries,  ���������distilleries, wineries, and in stocks of liquors. It is a situation that  demands the holiest statesmanship and generalship. It raises the  ���������question as to why we have lost so many States and why we have  so many fierce contests in other States.  "It raises the question as to whether"our cause as a trade is  incompetent or in incompetent, hands, or whether it can be possible that the liquor trade is-so disreputable that it can not be sue-  [ cessfully defended before the bar of public sentiment."  Evidently rejecting the latter alternative, this writer then  urges the liquor interests to fight the Anti-Saloon League and the  Prohibitionists by defending the trade "in the open," "to meet  the people and the press on a common platform and work for laws  hthat will really regulate the. saloon-���������laws under which the saloon-  I keeper could' not afford to violate law or disregard public sentiment." For, "the liquor trade can be successfully defended, but  not along gumshoe lines, nor by methods that will not stand the  widest publicity and the greatest possible light."  THE GUH)E-BOOK FOR PARISH VISITORS.      .  ��������� (Collier's.)  "Oh, no, Mr. So-and-So doesn't do any parish visiting.    He  lets his assistant do all that." In other words, the fashionable  .preacher saves himself for the Sunday sermon and hands the human  pkindness part of tlie job over to a subordinate.   Similes take a. deal  of thinking; metaphors lieed adjusting; sentences need filing; ap-  iposite learning must be displayed to the best advantage; quotations  [must be verified; just enough of the higher criticism of doubt and  negation must be introduced to show that the preacher is not behind  nthe times; the finished performance must prove what a fine scholar  and literary genius is content humbly to serve God twice a day on  Sunday, fifty-two times a year. The result is a brilliant sermon,  [the elegance and polish of which shows every day's work of the  Lsix that were spent on it, a sermon deep enough to tickle every  Fhighbrow and wide enough to please every general hearer in the  ['well-fed. well-dressed, well-behaved congregation. But a good ser-  Imon! There's the rub! What is there in it for those7 whom sin or  [sorrow or sickness or death has touched ?   What can there be in  it but husks?   How can a preacher reach hearts who does not go  out and look for hearts in the places where hearts reveal them-  Iselves? In some bitterness, for he was a fashionable preacher him-  [self. Dean Swift advised a young clergyman to read the Bible, if  [for nothing else, as a literary work.   The poor, soured Dean knew  dl that he had missed by not treating it as a human document, full  [of wisdom and solace poured out from bruised souls.   The Bible  was not written by preachers who neglected their parish visiting.  The proper study of mankind, preachers included, is man.    The  iible is something more than a compendium of texts around which  lessays majr be built.   It is the parish visitor's guide-book.  OPIUM TRAFFIC.  Canada has done much to suppress the opium habit within her  Ewn borders, but not so much to assist the Chinese.in eradicating  fhe curse from their own country.    The mass meeting held this  Iveek in Vancouver is indicative of an awakening public conscience.  IvVe, as a nation, must recognize and accept the responsibility of the  perpetuation of the traffic in China.   The Imperial Parliament may,  py consenting to the abrogation of the "Opium Treaty,'' relieve that  jiation of the chief cause of this curse which oppresses the nation  Ike a great blight.    All China asks is that her hands be free to  fvork out the problem as it presents itself.   Surely this is fair.   We  jan by our own moral support assist in this work, and those who  fvere responsible for the public meeting this week in this cause  Ihould secure the heartiest support for their highly commendable  kction.  Crisis in History of Municipality of South Vancouver-  Citizens' Grave Responsibility.  During the past two years South Vancouver has grown at a  greater ratio, perhaps, than, any other section of the lower mainland.  It has risen from the position of a vast wilderness with a few scattered residents, to a municipality with about 30,000 inhabitants and  several thickly settled districts. That section known^as Cedar  Cottage is about the best example there is of rapid and substantial  growth; This district, which was served a few years ago with a  small two-roomed school, now has sixteen rooms and these are  overcrowded.  The council whieh has administered the affairs of this municipality during the past two or three years has had a very difficult  task, owing to the very rapid expansion and of the handicap necessarily imposed on an administration laboring under the "Municipal  Clauses Act." In fact, the situation has become so serious that  the adoption of one of two courses is imperative, viz., annexation to  the City of Vancouver or incorporation as a city. There is a difference of opinion as to which is the wiser course and it behooves every  citizen of South Vancouver to carefully study the situation and bend  every possible effort to the solution of this most intricate problem.  The present Council and the Board of Trade seem inclined to favor  early incorporation, and to their credit it must be admitted there  is considerable sound argument in wbat they advance as their reasons,  but it is an open question if it would not be to the ultimtae benefit  of the municipality to annex, rather than incorporate.  Briefly, the situation.stands thus: The whole district is growing  with amazing rapidity. The need of sewerage is absolutely imperative. Park sites should be obtained now before they get too  expensive. Fireballs are essential to the safety of the community.  Public works, too numerous to mention, are in great demand���������-but  none of these can be obtained tinder existing regulations under the  Municipal Clauses Act, except by. ^complyingiwitb conditions which  are practicaUy'.jii^  something should be done. 77   <���������   ;,7  The question to be decided is, which is most likely to be the  permanent advantage of the community, annexation of incorporation?  Annexation would solve the difficulty of public works such as  "water:" there is no better water system in the world than Vancouver's; also "sewerage," the large portion of the sewerage must  drain through the city, hence the wisdom of joint action. Then the  tram franchises should be adjusted with those of the eity, annexation  is the only solution of that. The fire department of the city is the  envy of a continent and without a peer; this could easily be extended to South Vancouver. It would cost the municipality a large  sum of money and a great loss of time to build up an official administration which could handle such matters as have been briefly outlined, whereas by annexation the machinery of government already  in existence in Vancouver could be extended to South Vancouver at  vefry little increased general cost.  There is one objection to annexation which bothers some very  much, viz., the uncertainty whieh surrounds the scheme. How long'  will it take? The answer to that question is, that if the residents  pf South Vancouyer'will accept reasonable terms and actively prosecute the. work of preparation, it need not take more than six  fnohths.         :"" ���������  '"'.       "'"  ~ " "' ~       "  In support, of incorporation it is urged that within two months  incorporation can be made a fact and then the council could proceed  to instal sewers and do other public works which are so necessary.  This is true, providing you have the administrative machinery and  complete plans for your work, otherwise the delay wouid be equally  as long as to await annexation. Then; further, incorporation will  never solve your tram question, it will not give you the best of  water systems, it will not completely solve the sewer problem, nor  will it necessarily give you a fire protection equal to that in the city.  Tn short, it will give perhaps temporary relief in some things, but  permanent relief iu none. There will still remain the inevitable  influences, such as will always obtain in communities so closely  identified as Vancouver and South Vancouver, drawing the two districts together. All thinking persons admit that the time must come  -.when this whole community will be under one civic government,  and when can this be done to belter advantage than 'now'. Time  will, only increase the difficulties and the cost. It is up to the people  of South Vancouver to say which, annexation or incorporation.  "KNOCKS" PORTLAND CANAL.  The report of Provincial Mineralogist W. Fleet Robinson regarding Portland Canal District is about as misleading as it possibly  could be. He tells us "there is only one property that one can.  pretend to call a mine. This is the property of the Portland Canal  Mining Company, who are shipping, etc." Every one who is in the  slightest touch with Portland Canal knows this. No one claims that  there������are any number of shipping mines, nor does any one claim  that the camp has been proven, but the people.of British Columbia  do not pay Mr. Robinson a high salary as Provincial 3Iineralogist to  tell us what mines are shipping and which are not. Any office boy  could do that. What we want-to know from our Provincial Mineralogist is, .What is the nature of,, the. country which is attracting  world-wide attention? What are its prospects of becoming a mining  camp?  It were almost safe to say that the worthy scientist (?) was  either totally blinded by a prejudice in favor of the company named,  or else he does not know his business. One would almost think the  gentleman was making a special report for this highly favored company. Or is it an advertising scheme? Or, we tremble to suggest  it. has the News-Advertiser misquoted the' gentleman ? No; this cannot be so. as we note it was a "special cable," etc.  In any case, the report as given is a slander on the camp and  a disgrace to the official, as far as impartiality and professional  report goes.  PORTUGAL'S REVOLUTION  WAS A BID FOR FREEDOM  Church Control of Government Abolished���������Clergy is  Blamed For Revolution.  * This most significant revolution has been accomplished with  but little bloodshed and in a remarkably short space of time.  From reports which from time to time come to hand it would  appear that the chief struggle was not so much between the  "Democracy" and the,-" Royalty "as between the "lay" and the  "clergy." It is quite safe to say that had Portugal been under  a monarchy which was purely secular in its administration there  would -have been no revolution at this time. But the undue  influence of the clergy over the administration, and the manifest  injustice of supporting a large unmber of nonproductive religious  orders, impelled the people to shake off these shackles and banish  the parasites from the country..  The provisional government of the new Republic have issued  a decree banishing all members of the Royal family and abolishing  all titles and orders of nobility. Large numbers of nuns and priests  have also been deported, and many state offices which hitherto  has been administered by the priests will in future be handled  entirely by state officials. The church will no more have any  voice in the state management. This sweeping reform has been  worked in the course of a Week or two and is a striking example'  of the utter futility of any form of government whieh combine  state and church. There are those in Canada and in Ireland who  would reinstate the old order of church and state control, but  they would do well to contemplate this revolt in Portugal and the  agitation in Spain, because this is the sure fate of any such form  of government.  B .0. TELEPHONE GO. BRING Of SPECIAL PLEADER.  Mr. Allen has been brought to Vancouver ostensibly to advise  the B. C. Telephone Co how to improve its plant, but really to assist  the local company to defeat any effort on the .part of any Other  company to secure a second franchise or the city to enter into the  business, or in other words toirelp the local company over the crisis.  In speaking of anything in connection with the Bell Telephone  Trust he always said "we." In speaking of the B.(C.-Telephone Co.  he also said, "we," so it is safe to say that he represented the Bell  Telephone Trust, and that the local company is closely identified  with said Trust He addressed the committee of the. Council -on  Wednesday evening for over an hour and a half, and the burden of  his whole speech was an argument against a dual telephone system  and a eulogy of the local company, which he said was so thoroughly  up-to-date that it greatly surprised him. In an unguarded moment,  though, he stated the local company "were not giving good service."  Several letters were read from cities using the automatic, which  claimed it was very satisfactory, but in spite of this Mr. Allen, the  Bell Trust representative, said the automatic was impracticable and  had never been a success.  The local company are simply drawing a red herring (we hope  Mr. Allen will not be offended) across the trail by adopting these  methods. They are seeking to lull the people into indifference by a  flood of plausible stories and a mass of expert (?) opinion.  The only way to get reasonable'treatment from this company is  to keep pressing them for the relief whieh is necessary.  We wanLlow^  by the city. ....  SKYSCRAPERS.  Aid. Hepburn introduced.a motion at the last council meeting  to authorize a plebiscite to be taken at the next general election as  to limiting the heighth of buildings to ten stories or 120 feet. This  was voted down on the casting vote of the Mayor. It came as a  surprise to most that the Mayor, who claims to be "the people's  champion." should refuse to allow a question of such vital general  interest to be submitted to the public for an expression of opinion.  Thi.s question was brought up .earlier in the year by Aid. Stevens,  but was defeated, and it was thought that as it affected the interest  of the whole eity and was a matter of general policy, that it would  be advisable to have a test of public opinion, but this end was defeated by the above unexpected action.  HOTEL RESPONSIBILITY FOR CRIME  Last week in London. Qui., a man was tried for murder. ,-ind  found guilty. The only redeeming feature about the case was  that the man was so drunk when he committed the crime that he  was ignorant of what he was doing. On this the jury founded a  plea for mercy. The judge sentenced him to three years in the  penitentiary. The evidence showed that the accused had been  drinking to excess, and that liquor had been freely frunished to  him when he was already greatly under its influence. In the judffe's  charire he commented "upon thi.s fact in the following words: "The  punishment I shall pass shall be partly as a wurning to others, a  warning to ihe hotel-keepers as to the responsibility tbat rests with  them. No hotel proprietor should-he allowed to'retain bis license  when it has been shown that he supplied drunken men with liquor."  And yet there is no reasonable doubt, we suppose, that the hotel-  keeper who supplied this man with liquor which sent him out,  maddened and irresponsible, to shoot down an innocent7 woman  whom he did not even know, still holds a lieense to sell liqiioi-. and  probably will still sell as he did before to drunken men. Is he the  only offender? And who pays for it all? Who pays for the costly  trial. for the judge and the jury? and for the penitentiary. With  its costly system of guards, etc. ? 'The temperance people pay most  of it. "Leave us alone." the hotel men cry sometimes to their temperance opponents; "we are not hurting you." And yet the traffic  helped to slay in cold blood the poor woman referred to. Is it any  wonder that thinking men loathe and hate the traffic? What'has  it ever done which ought to save it from annihilation? We confess  we know of nothing.���������Guardian. p  THE WESTERN  CAt,L, VANCOUVER.

Poles of first-class Michigan cedar  will soon be a thing of the past, ac -  cording to Mr. E. L��������� Clark, who spoke  recently before tbe Electrical Clu'3 of  Chicago. As a substitute for Michi -  gan cedar, either steel or concrete  poles must be used, or the electrical  engineer will have to overcome his  prejudice against western cedar. By  treating the pole with preservative  1 materials, its life may be greatly in-  tf?creased. Mr. Clark recommends that  ij-the butt of the pole he immersed in  hot compounds at, say, 205 deg. F..  for eight minutes. This treatment  wouW poison the food supply of such  germs as art liable to attack the wood.  ICE CREAM  Jane���������I've something on me mind.

Annual Convention was held at  Eburne on' E^riday 14th inst., in the  Methodist, church. The missionary  f.eal of the ladies was certainly tested  by the heavy downpour of rain, but it  stood the test, for over/70 ladies were  congregated at the depot and soon after the chartered car was filled beyond  its capacity as the smiling stragglers  were taken on at the various stopping  points. Afraid ot* rain! Not a bit  of it. Our women are made of such  stuff as missionaries are made of.  Why! they can face bears or bugbears if occasion demands. Arrived  at the church the convention came to  order in a business like manner, and  if it was raining without there was  sunshine within and under the genial  i leadership of our esteemed Organizer  we entered immediately into the spirit  of the great cause. The session was  opened appropriately with devotional  exercises and then the regular order  of business followed. The reports  from the various auxiliaries were  most encouraging and almost without  exception showed signs of progress.  The newest and youngest auxilliary,  North Vancouver, which has doubled  its membership in two weeks was especially mentioned and worthily so.  The papers given on missionary work  werethoughtful and practical. The  missionary object lesson of Chinese  and Japanese girls who sang so nicely in English was quite touching. Also the report read by one of the members of the Chinese Mission Circle  was a unique feature. The presence  of so many of our young ladies, with  their intelligent interest in the. missionary enterprise augers well for the  future of the W. M. S., and to  Last month in London, England, a  great suffrage parade took place and  prominent amongst them, was to be  seen, the striking figure of that remarkable woman, "Rev. Anna H.  Shaw" of America. Indicative of the  spirit existing between the great sisterhood, her reception was cheering  in the extreme; everywhere she was  greeted with warm applause, especially when she' ascended the platform,  and holding the stars and stripes aloft  said:���������"In 1776 the parliament of King  George the Third turned deaf ears to  the demand of the British Subjects  who insisted that taxati<% and re pre -  sentation are inseparable. This flag  then sprang into being. Will the Parliament of 1910 under King George  the Fifth force another rebellion, before it learns that lesson as applied to  women? The women of Great Brit -  ain are loyal subjects, but when any  form of tyranny oppresses the women  of the twentieth century, they too  know how to rebel, and if they do, the  Englishmen must lay the blame where  it belongs, not on'the women, but upon their own Parliament.

The shortage in the  U. S.

At the present moment Australia has  the chance of her lifetime to place the  frozen meat trade in such a position  as will enable it to take full advantage  of the setbacks that are being experienced in the U.

IRISH AWAKENING.  Sixty years ago. according to "Sinn Fein." Ireland had nearly  |x and a half million Roman Catholics, while today she has little  jiore than three millions, and the rate of decrease has been steadily  counting for the last twenty-six years. The Roman Catholic pop-  latioit of Ireland is now decreasing at the rate of 32.700 per allium, and the writer (a Roman Catholic) asserts that in 1974. un-  jss some means be found of checking the exodus, the Roman Cath-  lics in Ireland will be outnumbered by the Protestants  |int Ireland would even seem to be a possibility.  THE ANTJ-BBITISH DISEASE.  (Standard of-Empire.)  Great progress has been made of late in checking the ravages  of a number of fell diseases. But little seems to have been accomplished with regard to that peculiarly offensive and malignant mental disorder which we have called the Anti-British disease. In foreigners the symptoms may be lightly dismissed, of course, '"hey  represent idiosyncrasy rather than disease. But in British subjects  they stand for a very. pestilential and degrading disease indeed.  Never a week passes but news reaches us of some outbreak of the.  pest. It is. of course, comforting to find that the most virulent  attacks of the malady seem to he confined to old victims, and that  fact really does suggest the desirability of some kind of an isolation system being enforced, since we have evidence that, iu certain  stages, at all events, this pest is contagious. One has heard of  radical cures effected in curious ways by chance. Globe-trotters  far gone in the Anti-British disease have been captured by predatory tribesmen on India's North-West-Frontier" and on the banks  of the Upper_ Nile.  .Occasionally Iheyhav^  subsequent appearance in the world of civilization, and candor compels the admission that they never have been missed. But report  says that in those cases in which these poo������ sufferers have been  rescued, it has invariably been found that their experience has  purged their respective systems of every trace of the Anti-British  disease, completely and for ever. There is no record of any subsequent relapse in such cases, so far as we know. This treatment is  drastic, of course, and not easy to obtain; yet. bearing in mind its  marvellous results, one thinks with sympathetic longing of such  dreadful and long-standing cases as those of Mr. Keir Ilard'e, Mr.  Wilfrid Scawen Blunt, and the English members and ex-members  of parliament whose names are connected so notoriously with Indian sedition and other forms of offence.

An irritable old farmer and his ungainly slouching son were busy grubbing sprouts one hot, sultry day, when  'the old man suddenly stumbled over  a small stump.  "Gosh durn that everlastin' stump!"  he exclaimed.   "I wish it was in hell!"  The son slowly straightened up from  his work and gazed reproachfully at  his father.  "Why .you oughtn't, to say that,  pap," he drawled. "You might stumble  over that stump ag'ln some day."   :  A CAPABLE FATHER.  At. a Scotch christening the Jjod -  mother had difficulty in removing the  child's head covering, and the minis -  ter, wishing to help her. asked the  father if he could hold the child.  "Hold him!" exclaimed the father  expanding his chest. v'Hold him?  Man. I could fling him richt ower the  kirk!"  A   FATAL   MISTAKE.  A gentleman of Arizona once hanged  himself to the bed post by his  suspenders.   The verdict of the coroner's k  jury was: ������������������.'(  "Deceased came to his death by  coming home full and mistaking himself for his pants."  FOLLOWED THE OAT.  Mr. Penn:   "They say ihe streets in  Boston are frightfully crooked?"  Mr."Hub:   "They are.    Why do you  know, when I first went there I could  hardly find my way around."  "That must be embarrassing!"  "It is.    The first week I, was there  I wanted to get. rid of an old cat' we  had, and my wife got me to take it to  the river a mile away."  "And you lost the cat all right?"  "Lost nothing!    I never would have  found my way home if I hadn't fol "-  lowed the cat!"  BUSINESS GOOD.  A Reputable, citizen had left four  umbrellas to be repaired. At noon, he  had luncheon in a^ restaurant, and as  he was departing he absent-mindedly  started to; take an umbrella from a  hook hear his hat.  f. "That's mine, sir," said a' woman  at the next table. *  He apologized and went out. When  he was going home in a street car  with his four repaired unbrelias, the  woman he had seen in the restaurant  got in. She glanced from him to his  umorellas and said:  "I see you had a good day."  RATHER   HEAVY.  ���������" The old physician is au enthusiastic  angler in every sense of the term.  While on his way home from a fishing  trip he received an emergency call.  The "proud"newly-made - father was  impatient to have the child weighed,  but could. f&t find the steelyards; so  the physician had to use the pocket  scales with which he weighed his  fish.

'  [.PROMPT DELIVERY PROMPT PERSONAL ATTENTION  Young & Thompson  Phone 7032���������Cor. 26th and Westminster Ave.  To those who watch with interest  the struggles of American municipalities over the police prohlem, the following statement from the New York  Evening Post may offer some suggestions. It reiers to the police system  in the City of Mexico, where it is re -  ported to be thoroughly satisfactory:  Each policeman on night duty starts  out with a lighted lantern. He places  it in the middle of the street, at the  point nearest to the center of his be-.il  ���������where two streets intersect. He is  forbidden to move out of sight of the  lantern. If one requires the services  of a policeman, a giance up or down  the street will show the gleam. of a  lantern. The policeman is always  ne-ir-by. Encouragement to strict  attention to duty is provided by a  standing reward of $5 to any one who  will bring a policeman's lantern to a  station-house. The officer who loses  his lantern is mulcted $5. and other -  wise disciplined to te^ich him to pay  closer attention to business. Each  policeman is required to keep a record  of the persons living on his beat, and  , he is held accountable for failure to  report a case of illness. Mounted police patrol the outskirts of the city.  At brief intervals throueh the night  every policeman sounds a whistle,  which must be replied to by the nwn  .on the beat. If no response is forthcoming, the roundsman or an<->ibe-  policeman goes to see why the signal  , is not returned.  the deaths due to railroad accidents  and injuries, which were fi,C59; those  from drowning, 4,558; from burns and  scalds, 3,592; from injuries by horses  and wagons, 2,152; from injuries from  street cars, 1.723; from injuries in  mines and quarries, 1,998; from inhalation of poisonous gases, including  smoke. 1,838: from other accidenvil  poisoning. 1.779: from accidental gun-  si-' w'lindx. 911; and from . heat nnd  simstro' e 81fi. It therefore is r^pii  that one is more liable to die as 'he  result of heat and sunstroke than  from an automobile accident.  PRESENCE OF MIND.

Good  Health :  "There is a constant source, of pellagra which at the present time seems  to have been overlooked; namely  beer. Most of the beer used in this  country is made from corn, and it Is  quite reasonable to suppose that much  corn which might be considered hardly suitable for the makimr of grits or  cornmeal niiiiht be considered good  enough for beer. It is doubtless true  that there are at the present time  many or even more people making use  of corn in the form of beer than in  i'.ny other form, and it would be well  for such persons to know ih-it in the  !'��������� e of beer they are running greiter  i-������k of t.,ujTj<r pellagra than would"be  i-'-o'ved in the ordinary use of corn.'
