There was no occasion in which the common sentiment of sympathy was so universally and spontaneously brought forth than during the war. To think that this human attribute had exhausted itself would be to bring despair to the minds of those who have the sincere belief that the human race is on its road in the evolution of all that is best. To those who are inclined to be pessimistic as to the year or pun-egg in an eiitornrls Is of interest to all points THE MOVIES AND THE FUDLIC.

This is something which those in the picture show business have to consider in their own inter ests.

It is a gift which this is an unknown factor which- we can aff0rd to give in full measui'e in the great comfort of brings to many. It-is after all thespreading of the sun- the action of the proprietors of shine which helps to brighten life. In the measure we are bars in the methods they used in car- j blessed with the sunshine of life we can give freely of it. The pleasant smile, the' comforting word, the friendly hand cost little but they mean so much. To be sympathetic, and. so to share in the troubles of others, takes away very rylng on their business. They were such as to stir adverse opinion and, particularly, adverse silent' 'opinion. This is an experience which should come home to.fllm producers and Sim exhibitors- who lend themselves to'in- imical attention in the' class of pic- ture they are accustomed to fore the public. Consequently -In their own Interests it behooves 'them- to' -respect opinion which can be properly classed as public'opinion. It Incomes those who are engaged In the picture enterprises, -.with an honest desire to keep it so that it will make for decen- cy and cleanliness, to bring-methods to bear that will save them from the consequences of the "black sheep" in the business. In condemning .a certain class of picture it must be remembered that it is not always fair to blame the produc- er or the exhibitor. There is the spir- it of commercialism to be considered1 in .what is distinctly a commercial business. In the picture business, as in nearly every business; the law of sup- ply and demand counts. What the pub- lic in tho majority asks for it will get. Therefore it remains that public taste and desires should be such that there! will be no excuse tor tho undesirable film. This, however, should not mean that there should be any pandering to the perverse tastes of the minority on the part of film producers and ex- hibitors. Whether a film is objectionable or not is after at! a big question. Much depends on the appeal which under- lies it or, again, in what is' made to appeal in it. There are those who are inclined to see ovil where it does not appear to others. There ia again a certain class of picture of which there can be no doubt that it will'arouse the consensus of honest opinion against it. That tho moving picture can exert considerable influence may he accepted; but if reform is to be brought about where it is sensed, it is necessary that the first responsibility Is on the picture censor. It should be that what has passed the censor or a board of consors should be constituted a picture which it will d.o no harm for .anyone to' see. That is the primary, and principal 'safeguard which those who are anxious for reform should seek to see established. With the ex- istence of a responsible censorship there should be no room allowed the undesirable picture; and no ground for complaint. It becomes .therefore a question as to what constitutes cen ..aorship. or alleviates the sting. The world today needs that sympathy in everyday I'll 1111-1 J "-au uc matters which we are often inclined to hold back and j Lincoln road. only bring into evidence when the object for sympathy comes into public notice. But just as there is the :grea1 virtue of doing good by stealth, so there is the virtue of seeking in the by-ways of life the opportunity forspend- ing sympathy, in the boon it brings to many a forlorn mortal. Sympathy does not necessarily mean the confin- ing of it to individuals. There are movements which call for sympathy in the great good they bring. The sympa- thetic spirit breeds encouragement and co-operation in all good works. It is the exposition of the human and the proof of the divine that is in each one of us. With the sensing of this the harsh word and the selfish action will often be spared; Our Lord, even in the power He knew He possessed of raising the dead, did; not refrain from weeping at the grave of Lazarus. Thereby He gave the great lesson to mankind to feel for one another's trou- bles, thinking of those around Him, and to exercise that sympathy which as the pattern of mankind He possessed and was zealous to show. ional Highway, which takes In Yel lowstone Park and Glacier Park.

An alternative will be avail- able. Going on west from the junc- tion with the Roosevelt road, the coast can be reached and a return over the as green vegetation on land in afford-1 ing food.

Research by scientists into sea life .has shown that there is a great deal of identity between the crop of the lea and that of the land, in the depend- ence on nitrogen for sustenance. It has been brought to light that the plant life of the sea depends on nitro- gen much as the plant life on land ha need of it, and which is given in the way of artificial fertilizers and sol! manures. In extracting nitrogen sunlight is a great the absence of this destroys and causes plant life in (he to be absent. In this respect we learn, as shown by Professor Arthur Thomson, that most marine animals carnivorous, fn the fact that they so not Iroin choice hut from neces- sity in the absence of plant life In the fn quantity.
