Ottawa, Kch. 7.-One ot the most important announcements for some time Wiis given out ofliciallv at the local military headquarters this morning. For the future all Canadian overseas battalions will continue recruiting when they are up to full strcnRth and may raise a second and even a third battalion. The instructions received from the minister of militia is follows : "Authority is uraiitcd to all overseas battalions to continue recruiting over s-rength, using the same organ-izat.on, and when any ot the overseas battalions recruiting in (Canada arc completed, if the oriranization is proven satisfactory in the meantime, each may continue to raise a second and even a third battalion." The principle which the new instructions would enforce is one that local military men are at one with. The idea is that a battalion should preserve lis irtrntity. This is the system employed in the old country. For instance, under the cotLditions which have hitherto prevailed, the 10th Dat-tilion and the Princess Pats, unless they had bcCn reinforced, would have cntiie y cca-scd to exist. It is to avoid such a contingency and to preserve the n.ame of the hattalioa that the ordirs have been issued.

Lothhrldge people will realize that we could not publish such letters as the following if they were not genuine and truthful statements of facts. The Rev. Mr. Hughes, Holly Springs, Ark,, says: "I am a Methodist minister, and suffered from broken-down nerves, loss of appetite and sleeplessness. I was woalc, my circulation was very poor, and I was not able to do my duty to my Parish as I felt I should. I had tried various remedies but did not seem to get any better. Through Mr. Gatlln of Bearden, Ark,, I learned ot Vlnol, aud It built me up. I regained my appetite, can sleep bettor and do more work," There Is no secret about Vlnol, it derives its power to build up the overworked, brokendown nervous system from the medicinal extractives ot fresh cod livers without oil, combined with tonic iron and beef peptone.

He had seen nothing since .luly 1st last, the date on which all bars closed and the dispensaries opened, to make him change his desire for prohibition, and nothing that the public could submit would make him change his attitude. Mr, Gardiner, North Qu'Appelle (Liberal), replied to Mr, Bradshaw during the afternoon. He took Mr. Bradshaw's points one by one and held them to ridicule and cited ofllclal returns showing that drinking had decreased 75 to 80 per cent, that crime was practically non-existent and that the province as a whole was better morally and every other way at the present time than ever before. Nine Raiders Ready New York, Feb. 4,-Nine sea raiders of the type ot the Moewe have been fitted out by the Germans, and one of them which escaped from Kiel on New Year's Day with the Moewe, has since tieen preying on British commerce with as much success as the Appam'B captor, according to a story told here tonight by Mrs. Francis Fuller, wife ot the British governor-general ot Ashanti.

Health Alarm often souiul.s first in the doctor's office when some liealtliy looking specimen of humanity, undergoing examination for hfe insurance, is told that liis blood pressure is too high. Increased blood pressure is no longer confined to old age; it is frequently found in men in their 40's who are otherwise healthy. In such cases it points to approaching degeneration of the arteries-a condition wliich in turn indicates those errors of diet that often end in various diseases of the stomach, kidneys, liver, nerves and heart. Among these errors of diet are tea aud coffee drinking, because of the drug, caifeine, the constant use of which weakens the walls of the arteries. Medical fiu-Ihorities now insist that in all cases of high blood pressure there must be total abstinence from tea, coffee and other harmful beverages. Hard to give up tea and coffee? Not at all, when one uses instead the pure food-drink- Instant Postum This delicious beverage is made of wheat, roasted with a lillle wholesome molasses.
