London, .Dec. i,").-Wliilp'aw Ucid, the AnicciCiiii ambassador lo Oreat Hrltain since I'JO.'i, died at his London residence, Dorchester House, shortly after noon today. The end was quiet and peacetul. Mrs. Ucld and their daughter, Mrs. John Hubert Ward, were at the bedside. The ambassador had t;cen unconscious .since nine o'clock in the morning aild at intervals duiing the previous twcnly-tour liours he had been slightly delirious as a result ot the drugs administered to induce sleep. sir Tho^nas 13arlow, physician to the King, wlio was called in last week when Mr. acid's illness became acute, and ids regular physician, l3r Wm. n. While, issued the following bulletin as to the cause of death: , "A. fortnight ago the ambassador had a slight bronchial attack similar to others from which he had sulTei-ed at considerable intervals. On Wednesday last asthma supervened and the asthmatic paroxysms became very severe leading to extreme exhaustion. "It was hoped that he might rally as no pneumonic symptoms had appeared. "With difliculty the paroxysms of asthma were got under control but .Sunday morning the exhaustion became extreme and he died fron� pulmonary odcma at 12.10 p.m." King Notilied The ifon. .lohn. Hubert Ward, who with his wife, had been at Dorchester House continually since the ambassador's condition became serious, notified thefctafl of the^emibtissy when the Patient began to sink and when death occurred he sent word to the King and Queen at Buckinbham Palace, the Queen-mother, Alexandra, at Sandriughara and the officials of the court. Almost immediately . the King sent his equerry,.Sir Harry l.egge, to express the condolences of himselt and the ()uecn. During the afternoon messages conveying the warnest sympathy were received from the Queen Mother, Alexandra, and the other members of the royal, family, the court officials as members ol the government and the various embassies and legations, while many who heard the news of the ambassador's death or who had seen the flags, at half mast on Dorchester House, called at the embassy. MAD ACTOTF ONTARIO FARMER THOUGHT HE HAD LOST YOUNG WIFE'S LOVE AND SHOT HER Vancouver, B.C., Dec, irj-Dcclar-Ing that one of the darkest, blots on the pages of surgery Ik tiin way needless, wanton, and niuUlatlng operations are performed In the name of that science by Inexptiienccd medical men, Dr. Kenneth A. .1. .\lacK0n7.le, a woU-ktiown surgeon, of Portland, Ore., made a strong plea tor the uplift of the profession In hia pres-sldentlal address at the first annual convention of the North Pacific Surgical association, which closed on Sau urday. He is strongly opposed to young graduates being turned loose to carve their fellow men without first obtaining hospital experience and further post-graduate training under a skilled operator. His obaerviitions were wannly applauded by the. thirty or forty members ' in Attendance, representing the lending surgeons of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. Mr. MacKenzle said: "One of the cardinal objects/of this and kindred societies should bo that professional men, contomplatlng the practice of surgery ehonUl have practical experience, training and service before embarking upon the practice of surgery. 80 limited are opportunities In medical schools for students to receive dll'ect instructions lu the practice of surgery because of obvious difficulties, that the average graduate poBsesses rarely' enough knowledge to proceed with the performance of the simplest surgical operations. Notwithstanding these defects, the dominant idea of the avierage graduate Is to do surgical 'work, ^and many are the unknown crimes that have been committed in its name. . "No one will deny the ambitious young practitioner the right to practice surgery, but' society has also rights and must protect Itself, it is held by those who have given careful thought to the subject that no graduate of medicine should practice sur gery without having served for at least one year, and having assisted a surgeon in active practice for another year, with added post-graduate ex-l)erience. This degree, at least, ot experience would appear to be absol-oitely necessary, otherwise surgery will ho done by the Inexperienced in a wanton and reckless way. "One of the darkest .blots on the pases of surgery is the: needless, wan. ton and mutilating operaUons that are performed in the namft of surgery. It must become the duty of this society to make its strongest remon-gtration against this crying evil. One of the objects of this society's existence is declared to be the uplift of the medical profession." SWEET A ALLEY Belleville, Ont, Dec. 15.-B. D. Will man, a Rawdon township farmer, aged. 38, committed suicide on Saturday af-tei-noon, after attempting to murder his 15-year-old bride of a year. The latter is so badly wounded that the doctors say she cannot recover. Willman had been acting strangely and harbored a delusion that his wife's relatives wore hostile to him. This is 8upi>osed to have prompted the crime. On Saturday lie borrowed a neighbor's shotgun, saying he wished to shoot some we^els. .4bout 4.30 o'clock Willman entered the bedroom where his wife was lying 111, and without warning, fired point blank at her, inflicting terrible Injuries. Apparently thinking he had killed her, Willman went upstairs, re-loaded the gun, tied a string to the trigger and discharged the^ gun with his foot. He died instantly. Mrs. WUlman's mother, who was at the bam, heard the shootlng^;^and rushed to-the house and summoned iielp. Coroner Algers, of Stirling, was notified, and to him -Mrs. WiUman, al though mortally wounded was able to tell the story of her husband's deed. An inquest will be held. Willman was well known, having lived in Riiwdon township all his lite.

Sovornl have gone 10 Ctirmaiigay to attend Fei'tlg's horse sale on Saturday, Build better roads than the ^Romans CANADA is alive to the vital importance of good roads. Eyeiy land-owner knows that they contain ihe secret of greater prosperity; that they mean more- farms, more profitable crops and rporie valuable land. Every mercbant knows tbat th^y alone can swelt'bis.trade and his prpfits by giving him more customers and making it ieaaier for those custom' er� to get to his store" But just what do we mean by "good roads ?" People in Louisiana arc glad to get a strip of sand across their marshes - and they call it a "good" road; People in Arkansas ride horseback through their barren vhills-and they call their winding, rocky paths "good roads;" But people in prosperous, fertile Canada do not have to be content with such make-shifts. |They are going about the work of providing proper highways as they have gone about everything else-carefully, systematically, intelligently. Their definition of a good road is the "best" road-and that definition means a Concrete road 'II m A BROAD atatement? Yes - but it is aupported by incontrovertable facts; by the experience of more thari twenty years and by the most exhaustive tests and investigation. It is admitted to be the fact by the foremost road authorities on the continent, k is guiding the road-building policy of great commonwealths. The Romans-history's greatest road-builders- used a crude (otm o( natural concrete to build the highways that have given service for two thousand yeais. Until this present century, no Ihter nation was able to equal th� Romana aa road-builderi. Now, we can build belter loada than the Romant, for let* money than our fathers paid (or roads that would not lait (or half the lifetime of those who built them. TWIODERN concrete, made with cemfenl produced by modern scientific meth' ods, is more enduring in every cubic yard than the beat the Romnns over mode. Modern road-making machines enable a dozen men'to lay more- and better-road in a day than a hundred Roman slaves could put down in a week. In a fewyenra tKcee modem concrete roadB will have .paid for themselvea - and will still be there, practically as good as new, to pay their builders and succeeding generations, annual profits. Concrete has been proven to be the beat material (or any sort o^ highway. It has carried the heavy,-congested traffic in the heart of great cities; it is cheap enough to be within reach of the smallest town; it can be laid by the ordinary road-gang of the most isolated farming district. The materials are dote at hand; tho work provides employment for home labor; practically all the money spent (or concrete roads remains at home. \/''0U owe it to yourself-as a merchcint, a professional man, or a farmer-cind to your community-as a citizen-to use your influence'on behalf of this modem "best road."
