CATALOGUES READY ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 12TH AND MAY BE HAD ON APPLICATION AT THE HAYR HARDWARE CO., OR ' FRANK WADDINGTON, Auctioneer REFUGEE RELIEF- WHAT IT MEANS II is a great mistake to think that, figures are dry. If the poet wants to tickle his imagination, let him give up lying in the grass, listening to the birds and watching the clouds; let him take a pad and a pencil and study the annual report of The British Serbian Relief Fund. If ho does not. get an astonished conception of what it means to provide lor a family of 80,000, he is no poet, and had better change his job. Let us look into the Question' of clothing alone. We had better suppose, for the sake of the abstract consideration of mere quantity, that the refugees are all men. Kverybody. of both sexes, knows what men wear, so there can be no deception. Kvery man must have one suit of clothes anyway. That means three pieces; let us set down three. For shirts we must at least set down two. For underwear, including socks, there are three pieces; and, to give him the barest sufficiency of change, we must at least set down six. Then there is a hat which counts as one, and boots which for the sake of understatement, we may count as one also. We need not degrade our Serbian with what the high-minded French call a "false collar," and perhaps a set of handkerchiefs may be'thought superfluous, too. Our total number of pieces for the barest outfit stands therefore at thirteen. There is no provision in this for an over-garment of some kind for winter; yet something of the kind must he necessary. Mild climates have usually a kind of cold in winter > that searches to one's marrow. We shall have to make the total number of pieces fourteen, and it looks-like short measure; two shirts may perhaps last for a year, but any baby could trample through two pairs of socks in a quarter of the time. However, if we let the number of pieces stand nt 14, that means that, for 80,000 persons, the British Serbian Relief Fund has to buy ready made, or has to buy stuff for and make, and, when bought or made, has to pack up, transport and distribute, 1,120,000 pieces of clothing. Laid on the ground end to end in line they would reach over aOO miles; from Toronto to beyond Quebec. Now, if our poet will take hold and translate that into visions, of human activity, lie will have something that will make his head swim; for clbthing is but one portion of the supply, and supply is but one portion of the work. It takes people and people to carry on such a work; and how about the multitudes whom ust subscribe to support it? Our poet will have to find plenty of rhymes for dollars, for they must be there in multitudes above all. VINOL MAKES GOOD BLOOD Positive-Convincing Proof Many so-called remedies for anaemia are only so in name. Their makers are afraid to prove their claims by telling what their medicines contain. The only way to be honest with the people is to let them know what they are paying for. Here is the Vinol formula. When the doctor knows what a medicine contains, it ceases to be a "patent" medicine. r> Cod Liveran* Beef Peptonaa, Iron and * " Hin|tniio Peptonatea, Iron and Am-nanium Citrate, LimaaDdfjqdaQlyctro-phespbataa, Caacarln. Any doctor will tell you that the in-* gredients of Vinol, as named above, will enrich the blood and banish anaemia and create strength. When the blood is pure and rich and red, the body is strong and robust. You can prove this at our expanse because your money will be returned if Vinol does not improve your health. J. O.

The Bible reading was taker, tyy Mrs. AV. L. McKenzie and interesting papers were read by Mrs. A. M. Fisher on "The Evangel in Our School Homes," and Miss K. McNabb on "Early Days in the French Regime." A very pleasing event of the e.vening was the presenting of a life membership to one of the members, the first to be presented since the uniting of Home and Foreign Missionary Societies. This was given by Mrs. R. C. McClure to Miss Charlotte McClure and was presented to her by Mrs. Denoon in a few well chosen words, fittingly responded to by Miss McClure. m This is St: Valentine's day and 1 never thought it a very festive oceas-sion since 1 was about ten years old. Before then, the hideous school valentines that we maliciously sent the teacher and boys and girls we wanted to tease, filled me. with mirth. After that advanced age, f decided that they were vulgar, loud colored things and not. funny at all. The little silver lace and pink ami white cupid kinds were silly for "softies.'' There was a later stage when violets and roses played the part of the cupids and silver lace. There is nothing in which a cupid delights more to hide than in a violet. Its demure appearance is such a splendid camouflage. However, I have discovered a little j boy who gets as much pleasure out ' of St. Valentine's day as out of April Fool's, and that is saying much. For days before he has worked industriously and with groat mystery in his own room, glue, gold ink, red cardboard and gilded arrows being seen when anyone is unkind enough to peek in. The night of the lath was almost, like Christmas Eve. 1 was so excited that I could hardly sleep, for his enthusiasm was infectious. Just before going to bed he passed around a large cardboard box with a slit in the lop. Into this all the family had to put their valentines (in sealed envelopes). Kven the dog aud cat were not forgotten, for I saw two envelopes addressed Mr. S. Cat and, Mr. AV. Pup -and they even sent valentines as 1 discovered this morning at breakfast when the box was opened in great state. ' *v* The one from Mr. S. Cat was a jewel a large red heart pierced by an arrow and in gold lotfoTs, "You may be a visitor, but 1 like you." On the back a delightful picture of a cat looking at the moon and "From the cat-This is nie." Many thanks, snoozer, I am glad 1 am popular with such an important member of the family. St. Valentine did not forget one of us and I thank the little hoy for making us all take on interest again in the pretty old customs which we are apt to forget just how, in these serious times.
