It' wotild appear to a �common mind like -my own that the real la'suB at the ' commencement ot the \var' was the 'world's commercial supremacy between E3uropean nations, but when the , war developed into , a \tar he.tween autocracy and democracy then the United States went into the �war whole-heartedly, collectively and Individually, and while they are not taking the honor of delivering thd solpr plexus blow to the hun at the samei time in my modest judgment they made a mighty,good stab at the same Han. > At this time I would say ajl honor to. the American nation for getting into theVar to help save the cause. I would say that the majority of Englishmen here in Canada have a wrong conception of the spirit of their American cousins across the line. As a resident of the States: for 20 years I think I. am able to judge the spirit pf the people over pay .there is no b :here and I 'would tterueas of spirit against Englishmen for past troubles, j)Ut would say personatlly I haye been hohpred time and igain for being an Bngiishpinn, bo I would say, bi^ry the hatchet and let the Anglo-Saxon race Unite for a better world to live, In.

THE EPIDEMJC ^ Vancouver, Nov. 29, 1918. Editor. Lethbridge llerald: I see by the papers that the good people of your city have been great sufferers from the 'flu epidemic, and that God's great out-of-doors has been ' repudiated and its health-giving power denied. Sometimes one wonders If by throwing off the hor rors pf Germanism the people are not really still enslaved and doml nated by evils more powerful and .deadly than that ot brute force and material might. I firmly believe that the attitude of the public press is perhaps unconsciously a great menace to the health and true progress of humanity. The dally papers seem to vie with one another in presenting to their readers morning, noon and night, in great headlines, chiefly calamity, deaths, frightfulness - and destruction, iratil one wonders if there is rosily anythiug left that is worth living for, and iiu that state oE mind una might-also be Inclinod to doubt if there is really anything- in the realm of God's kingdom that is worth dying for. Why should wo be so concerned about our. children's environment, guarrjiug them constantly and carefully against associations of a vl'clous and degeilerate character, when at the same tlmeweare permitting thfiir .tender minds lo be fco'JiVw'i'^.fd daily.I.n the'u'omeji b.v tU�^'' a uplifting or helpful character is shown. Women and Innocent children throng itiieBe theatres in great numbers.- If we really believe that there Is anything in the idea presented to UB, centuries ago that "as a man thinketh so is he" it should not be difficult to determine what our future might'1)0. Do we really believe more In life than we do in sickness, disease aud .deatii? Let us take an inventory of our menial wealth and ascertain on which side Is the balance. "As a man thinketlr so is ho." Tlie human body together with all its functions are products of the mind. "As we think bo we are." Should our thoughts then not dwell on life instead of death; on dominion over evil instead pf subjection thereto? , Think right instead of wrong; good instead of bad; health instead of sickness; faith and hope Instead ot despair, "As . a man thinketh so is he/' The city ot Seattle was laden with the 'flu epidemic, and the authorlti�s had reported a large number o� death.? on the day that the armistice^ was .signed in Europe. On. hearing the good news the populace of the city forgot the ban that was held over them, and celebrated the event in a manner suited to the occasion and rejoiced that the dawn of peace was at hand. The day afterwards the 'flu ban was declared off; churches, theatres and other public places were filled to the limit. Courage, hope and optimism prevailed among .the people. It has been difficult Indeed to find the name "llu" in any of the Seattle papers since that time, ^ save In connection-with the so-called' patented remedles-^that do not remedy.. PETER LUND,, .
