Save  [young, and this hideous, disease-breeding,  I damning evil will soon consume itself and ei  dishonor and tbe grave. Home is the most sec  Elace on earth.. Under its protection beauty  fe, nobility of character and fulness of raanh  develop in symmetrical proportions as the li  [blooms or water flows to the sea.   Home is f  Paradise of earth and the Vestibule of heav  J������eep the children home as much as possible.   To  this end make it attractive and exercise well  directed authority to restrain them from evening  outings.  The Curfew has been proven effective as a  compliment to wise parental authority and a  measureable success in- the absence of home government. To make the most of Curfew several  factors must be present in its enforcement.  First: A good alarm or announcement. The  best of which the writer has any knowledge is in.  Grand Rapids, Mich. It is a powerful siren (mill  whistle) which can be heard distinctly, on any  night, throughout that city of 120,00. There is  something so definite and startling in its cry that  every boy and girl on the street feels it rush up  and down their spine, impelling them to make a  bee-line for their own door without delay. A  Weak voiced bell, whistle or gun instead of compelling haste is either not. heard, or being heard  assures.the offender that all is well���������and procrastination is safe.  Second: Judicious, unflinching enforcement of  the law. Laws unenforced by authority soon become a dead letter with adults, much more with  children. Soft-hearted policemen render the law  ineffective. The children in one large city always rejoiced when a certain, bia/, good-natured  policeman was near when Curfew announced nine  o'clock p. m. This easy-going policeman would  take the twang of this whistle out of their nerves  by saying good-naturedly: "Boys, you had better  go home." That gave another hour's extension  of time. The iron hand of the law must vigorously operate the Curfew machinery or Curfew will  fail. In its enforcement there should be an absence of partiality. Children's eyes are quick  to see favoritism which generates anger, jealousy  and rebellion, with the result that law and authority are despised and Curfew is relegated to oblivion.  Third: Co-operation of parents and guardians  [' is indispensible. In the absence of this, little can  be done. Police are not omnipotent. There will  always be retreats where children ean congregate  at late hours unless the parents stand in with the  police and assist them to- discover the young-  , sters. Moreover, if the children know that their  parents-are co-operating with the police they  \f will double their diligence to be at home in good  time. Again, co-operation will help the polce  who, notwithstanding their angelic appearance,  are realy human, and therefore responsible to  influences of friendship and appreciation. Without this they may weary in well-doing and throw  responsibility and all* bad consequences back on  indifferent or unfriendly parents. This1 would  be a calamity andsHf>uld be guarded against by  patient and constant co-operation with the police.  ���������W-'Ws&JWo^^  fountain and! source^ and fulness of all holiness."  "He alone is the Vicar of Christ,*' Do our Protestant ministers admit this statement? Do they  deny it in positive terms? When Father Vaughan  arrives with the usual flourish of trumpets, will  our Protestant ministers, as usual, bow down to  the great Church dignitary? Will they be silent  when they are told they are heretics because they  are outside the pah? of the only true church on  earth, the only church presided over by the only  Vicar of Christ? Will they flock to hear the man  who comes from the Pope, who is called "God,"  and the only representative of God on earth  Again: "Item Bpiscopus universalisBcclesiae."  Translation: "He is also the bishop of the universal church."  If he be the bishop of the universal church, then  the Protestants are outside the universal church,  or they are under the bishop of that church-  Let our Protestant ministers tell us whether  they acknowledge allegiance to the pope as their  bishop, or whether they are in or out of the "universal chureh." If they are under the pope, let  them say so, and we shall know what to do with  them and ourselves, in our ehurch relationships.  If they are not under the pope as their supreme  bishop, then let them tell us whether they belong  to the universal church or not.  If not, then what church do they belong to ? If  not, where are they leading us to ? But if so, and  if at the same time they are not under tiie universal church's bishop, are there two universal churches ?   If two, which is right ?  Father Vaughan says there is but one universal  church, and its head is the pope of Rome. When  our ministers of the various Protestant denominations know that- such claims are made, oft repeated, and officially affirmed by the luminaries of  the Roman Catholic Church, and when they know  that such claims give them, and their teachings  the lie, why are they as silent as clams ?  As long as the Protestant ministers sit still and  permit the Roman Catholic representatives and  the church officially to call them religious and  theological liars, just so long will the ordinary,  plain thinking lajrmen think of them as poltroons  and cowards.  The Protestant laity will soon begin to spew the  fellow-citizens? The time is coining when the  people will demand a settlement, and they will  mako it, too.  However, I must push along a little fiither. We  cannot stop midway. Read this fine bit of Latin  from the "Prompta Bibliotheca":  "Hinc Papa triplici corona coronalur, lanquam  rex coeli et terrae et infernorum." Translation:  "Hence the pope is crowned with a triple crown,  as king of heaven and of earth, and of the infernal  regions."  Here it is in good plain Latin: "King of Heaven." Of heaven tool "King of earth." What  should the kings of earth think and do in this  matter ? ''King of hell.'' What will Satan think  of this? He, too, is only second in his infernal  regions. Poor, dethroned Satan. Answer for  yourself, Satan. v.  I have already asked our Protestant ministers  and our loyal, patriotic citizens what they think  of this mighty claim of the Pope and his church.  I have left the infernal side to Satan. But now I  ascend a step. There is one whom the Scriptures  call the "King of Kings." That is God, and God  alone. There cannot be two of such standing.  Further yet! Are there two kings in heaven?  While God, the Almighty, is King of Heaven, is  "God" the Pope, King of Heaven too? Surely  this is awful, preposterous, monstrous, blasphemous, and damnable. Will our loyalists, our Protestant ministers, our ordinary laymen, our newspaper editors, magazine writers, and all those in  authority, who, because of their office, elected or  appointed, have taken the oath of allegiance to  King George, sit in silence, and let the emissaries  of such insolent claims have the full run of this  earth in quiet*  Perhaps I have not grasped the situation. If  not, then the public would be glad for Father  Vaughan to clear up these tremendous questions  of priority on the part of his pope and his church.  We shall await his arrival and his announcement.  A play on words, or repartee, or special pleading,  or sarcasm, will not do in Vancouver, even in his  own church. Too many Roman Catholics are readers of history, and too many of these men are as  fearless as they are clear headed. They, too, would  know the whole truth.

Prophcy and history is an elaborate romance  in two volumes,���������-what was slightly hinted at in  the first is gradually developed in the second  volume where the author's plans and combinations are fully elucidated.  It seems to us that those who pooh-pooh the  yery idea of the British Israel Identity, are either  grossly ignorant of the Scriptures, or are too short  sighted to be able to see the wonderful similarity  and relationship that exists between old Israel  and ]the7Angl������Sa^  To us, English history is the expanded flower of  which prophecy is the bud.  The discerning chronologist or historian, who  is at the same time a spiritually minded theologian, finds reflected in the British Nation almost  every characteristic, nay, every idiooyncraey,  which in olden times distinguished peculiar Israel  from the surrounding Gentile nations.  We have often asked ourselves and others the  question:  Could it be possible that blind, unaided chance  alone has shaped and formed a nation and company of nations in the far Isles of the West and  beyond the Seas, resembling in every detail the  one great Nation shaped and formed thousand*  of years ago in the Near East hy the omnipotent  and omniscient Creator of the Universe?  Wo again ask, Could it be possible that blind  fate alone has allotted to Britain all the advantages and blessings which the patriarchs, and  finally the great legislator Moses himself, bequeathed to each of the ten tribes respectively and  distinctively!  Could all these be nothing else than accidental  similitudes?!  Believe who may, that it be so; we, on our part,  cannot stretch our imagination to such an extent!  Could a blind man, however talented, chisel out  a rough block of marble a magnificent statue  that should meet with universal admiration?  ���������Certainly not!���������far less is it possible, or even  probable that the present blessings in the possession of the British have come to them by mere  chance or by the natural process of evolution.  As aforesaid, we. find the orthodox Jew quite  willing to hear and understand the arguments of  tin; British Israel advocates.  It is the sceptical and stoical Jew that we find  most difficult to polemise with on the subject.  The latter, far from being proud of belonging to  the traditionally high-bred, aristocratic race, is  actually ashamed to own his origin and even denies it whenever he finds it possible. Indeed in his  heart he is sorely grieved and disappointed by the  accident of his birth.   ...  According to him, Moses made a tremendous  blunder in taking the Jews out of the land of  Egypt, as well as erred in geography by mislead-  (Continued on Page *>> ���������"J ^>Jj- w-jrw-r^y,^ MiS/**^������Zl**W>Oii-Aj**>l ^   J,r m������"  *n  Jl������l" T*h "*������*������*S*J J<  ���������   irtHt'fcp-iStA.'^.^l^^-u-YJ-.

Tbls requires considerable fuel to  bring It to a combustible state " With  new a new plan evolved by Mr. Wylle,  for which he has been granted a patent by the government, the green  staff will be made to consume itself.  The new destroying rornaco:can be  adopted to wholesale houses, so that  each can have Its own garbage destroyer, and all that will have to be  hauled through the streets will be a  small amount of ashes Instead of  great drayloads of decayed fruit exuding evil-omelling moisture at every  jolt of the wheels.

Most of tbe larger towns and cities  now have publicity men, and it is  generally recognized . as necessary  The municipality has now reached the  stage where It 1b no longer without  the need of this department.  Some time ago the Board of Trade  received a large grant from the com*.*  cil for the purpose of publicity, and  with this amount numbers of booklets  and pamphlets were bought and dis*.  trlbuted, but the result was generally  acknowledged to be .unsatisfactory for  the reason that the place had outgrown this stage.

No wonder then that in the eyes of such seeptics  and scoffers,. the adherents of the British Israel  theory are nothing more than exalted and hallucinated cranks.  They laugh at the very idea that individuals  belonging to a greatly honored, emancipated nation like Britain, should glory in descending from  a race which, since history lxjg.au, has been a  despised and rejected people���������often slaves and exiles, sjbd who arc still an astouishment, a proverb  and a byword among the nations.  But not so with the believing Hebrew who expects the unfoldings of Biblical promises, in the  same manner as the alchemist patiently anticipates  in his laboratory, the development of a combina  tion of several chemicals which he is perfectly  convinced must produce the desired effect.  In conclusion we would say,, if the British are  not in reality the lineal descendants of the exiled  and dispersed ten tribes of Israel, then a great  historical problem remains unsolved and the. sublime prestige of the Bible receives a severe blow.  Jehovah has sworn by His throne and by His  oi'dinanees that Israel shall not cease to be a nation before Him for evr.  Now*, is it possible that the judge of the whole  earth, whose seal is truth, should break His promises?  Indeed no!���������^for,  "Godis not a man that He should lie:  Neither the son of a man that He should repent;  Hath He promised aught and shall He not do it?

The I<*iirwestorh SUt������*yr  in fact, have the bumper crop of their; ^  history; and they look to the Canadian prairies to buy a great deal of  it, as times are god in Canada, while  money is scarce in the United tates.  This means thht there will be plenty  of poor fruit for sale In our markets  without any from British Columbia,  and tiie returns for this class of fruit  are bound to be low. Neither do the  canneries want small fruit; there to  no money in pie-peaches for any one.  Every grower should resolve that he  will not grow any peaches smaller  than "90's." Any shipper knows that  there will be no market for the small  stuff, and that even In the earliest  varieties we can grow, returns will  be unsatisfactory for the small gradeo*  Fortunately there is no good reason  why any grower should have any percentage of the email sizes to market.  It is unlikely that any frult-groweii  will thin too much; it is quite certain that most growers will not thin  enough. While the average man may  know about thinning, be is short the  nerve necessary to carry it out Most  of the growers of British Columbia  have not yet had enough experience  to realize the difference in profits on  large and small sizes. Those men  who see the situation clearly and who  recognize the fundamental necessity  for adequate thinning should ubc their;  influence by getting their neighbors  xo take it up.
