Tho profrrams far surpassed expectations, and tho committee and public trero delighted. On opening day, Supt.

The Ellison-White Co.. have won their way into tbe hearts of the people �f this community In having presented a series of programs by nlghly talented entertainers and lecturers who hare left much food for thought, greater knowledge and the pleasurable satisfaction of having bef*n delight-rally entertained by some of the most gifted talent obtainable.

MONmiM^^ Strong Opposition Shown To Placing Soldiers on Land Without Training Ottawa, July 26.-In the house of commons last evening after tho recess the soldiers' settlement bill received a second reading and was moved Into committee. J. G. Tnrrllt placed hlnisolf on record as absolutely opposed to the principle ot placing men on the land who were not accustomed to farming. Those returned soldiers who had been farmer* before they left might well tako advantage of the measure but the bill applied to returned soldiers from any part of the empire. These men had been living in larKe bodies ;or the last three years and it was now proposed to sehtl them 20, 30 or 40 miles from the railroad to settle. Ho ventured to say that not one in 60 would make good. The country had had experience before in assisting inexperienced men to settle. Most ot them had given up at the end of a fow yearn without being nble to pay a cent of the advances and the mortgage companies had taken over the land in lieu ot the debt. Hon. Dr. Roche declared that no man was receiving the grant unless he GOV-GENERAL OFFERS ANIMAL CLASSES ers .spell bound throughout. The highly educative values ot b11 these lectures were deepb' appreciated. Saturday afternoon Marion Ballou Fiske gave an illustrated lecture on "Kweer Karacters 1 Have Known." Her cartoon work was exceedingly clever. , In the evening Moron Olsen gave a splendid elocution prelude, his readings being given with wonderful depth of understanding and force. This was followed by a three act comedy drama, "Carson of the North Woods," ly the Cosmus Players, an Interesting story with a setting in the woods in northern Qnebec. ' On Monday afternoon, following a jrretade by the Chautauqua, Miss Ada 1*. Ward in her "Stories FTom the Trenches," was listened to with rapt attention, and many a -tear-stained face' was to be seen among her hearers as they eagerly  listened to her wonderful stories. Her lecture will long lira in the memory of her audl-ence here, such was the profound Impression she made. In the evening the orchestra, with Mis* Olive McCormack, as soloist, gave am entertainment that suited all tastes, and drew emphatic expres-aiona of delight, evidenced by the frequent hearty encores. Each mem-her of the orchestra acquitted them-mlrea as .skilled musicians. Miss McCormack sang with exquisite grace nd was in splendid voice. On Tuesday afternoon the Scotch concert party entertained with a fauslcal prelude, followed by Francis labadle, jthe gifted French-Canadian, a-hose excellent readings from Drum-Jnond and Service found an appreciative audience ' In the evening the Scotch concert farty gave a concert prelude after which Julius Caesar Naypho, Athens, gtave the huge audience one ot the great treats of the Chautanqua In his costume lecture, "The Oriental Pa-. geant." His recital of his first les-aons la English and confusion In the tudy of our language and customs was most mirth provoking. Born l.i Athena and raised In Palestine, he lara a true-to-llfe and interesting pie-jare of the habits and customs of the grlsfodracjr ot the Holy Land. Nayphe ^raa ona ot the outstanding features f tbe Chautauqua. On Wednesday afternoon, under the direction ot Miss Morrow, the "All JCatione Pageant'' was given by the Bosetown children. The little ones gave a very Interesting exhibition that dona credit to their aptitude under the able training of Miss Morrow.

CAN W�AR BADGE IF WOUNDED IN ENGLAND London, Julr 2�--The correspondent understands that authority has 'bwn given Canadian officers and sol-(ilWa, military nnrsea and hospital probationers, to wear gold braid and a gold braid sleeve badge when they are wounded during service tat the United .Kingdom. flifO FQK ONE" IS WORTH W.HIU* had been recommended by tho board. Mr. Turriff asked if the bill applied to returned soldiers from India and Dr. Hoche replied that it did not, that it only applied to the self-governing dominions ot the empire. Dr. Roche then moved an amendment to the bill that the privileges be extended to those nlso who being j British subjects before the srar resident in Canada had served during the war with any of his majesty's allies. The amendment waB carried, Mr. Oliver declared that in reserving land for returned soldiers and in granting them priority In such reservations, care must be taken not to prejudice ordinary settlements. Dr. Roche declared that such reservations should not be held longer than two years. The board would be guided by the number of applicants. A Big Taak. J. G. Turriff declared that Canada was going to have a terrific Job and going to be put to tremendous expense to look after returned Boldlers without looking after those from outside. Returned soldiers could get to Canada easier than to any other part of the empire and without such inducements would flock here in large numbers. Dr. Roche declared that It woulfl be the duty of the Dominion to look after her own first. Nearly a year would be occupied in bringing the men back and during that time there would be �, . little immigration. In answer to a! , question Dr. Roche stated that a soldier coutd not only qualify for a homestead under this act but for another homestead under the Dominion Lands Act. Mr. Oliver thought the government should expropriate land near the railways and sell it to the soldiers and settlers at fair prices. The plan, he said, had the approval of Lord Shaughnessy. Sir Thomas White said that It might be necessary some time to expropriate such lands held by private interests. ThiB was a matter which had often been considered, but it could not be undertaken at present, as it was not possible to finance such an undertaking. J. F. Glass asked if the soldier who had taken advantage of the Ontario land settlement scheme could also come under the federal government plan. Dr. Roche replied he could. He said that in such a case the soldiers could U3e a portion ot the money advanced to wipe out his obligation to the Ontario government and the remainder to improve his farm. Thomas MacNutt said it would be the part of wisdom to put tho soldiers on land near the existing lines of railways. Better results would follow such a policy than to send them a long distance from the railway even if they get their land for' nothing. The bill was reported from committee and given third reading. During the preliminaries George McCraney, of Saskatoon, read a telegram from the Secretary of The Returned Soldiers Association of Saskatchewan, stating that the settlement of returned soldiers on the land was being retarded by the delay In the Issue of patents. He asked tha Minister of Interior to facilitate this matter. Hon. Dr. Roche assured him he would do so. REPORT OF SCHOOL NURSE Tha following Is tha report of the school nnrse from the tlmo tho work was taken over by tho Mission, November 13-16 to June 30-17. Number ot hours spent nt school 108% Number of calls made ........ 327 680 notices were sent out following the medical supervisor's examination. 308 ot these were for defective teeth only, as the School Board had not secured a dentist for tho work. Dr. Taylor advised us that these calls were not neecssary, therefore most of our attontion was Kiven to tho remaining 317. In some cases one call was all that was needed-in mmiy others two and sometimes three v.lls were made. We are pleased to report that 17-1 children have already had medical or dental attention, 41 others have promised this care during the holidays. In a number of the homes they either said they could not afford to have anything done, or that they would see a doctor if the ailment became troublesome. We were courteously received in almost every home, there were three or four people who were slightly indignant that they should have to be told how to care for their children or that these children were not physically perfect. Another man warned us not to set foot in his house again until the price of wheat came down- and a few (just n very few) were slightly indifferent One woman with the best intentions In the world was down town buying glasses when we called-while the little girl for whom they were intended, and whose eyesight wsb very defective, was at home keeping house. In making the examination of every child in the different schools eacti month, as to hygenic conditions, we found that Fleetwood and Hardieville schooU came highest, while Westminster has been the most difficult to clean up, and at the end of the school term fourteen of the same pupils sent home from month to month with notes to their mothers and directions for treating tbe hair, were still on our "black list." They did seem to follow our directions In a way, but were not threatening letters enmo to tin as woll as personal calls, one woman demanding a written apology. We think special mention should be made of llardioville school which Is made hp almost enliroly ot foreigners. Every child was clean and neat, and tho day spent In making calls at No. 6 was a surprise to us. Wo vlslto;l 16 homes, fourteen of them foreign speaking people-their homes vore beautifully clenn-nearly nil nf thnm keep a cow. chickens etc and ,urn,shea by their back yards looked ns if thev h�d R whttnoy, Lvlioover may follow us and trust that even not-tcr results mav bo obtained.

The Waste of War is terrible, but the waste of food in times of peace is colossal. Rich and poor alike eat tons of food that has little food value-and this useless food breaks down the so-called eliminating organs and depletes the physical and mental powers.
