Manufactured Only by JOHN GUM ORE BAKER OF QUAKER BREAD A very interesting visitor in the city today is Miss Asson, a returned missionary from China. When seen by the Herald tills morning she gave n very graphic account of her work as it nurse in the .hospital for women and children at Clicng-Tu, UK; cap- ital of tho province of Szchwau. This iiospital is supported by tho Metho- dist Womcu'u Missionary Huciuty, of Canada, and is doing it wonderful work among tho Chinese not. only in elding their sufferings but also work- ing in connection with the church infssionaries in helping to convert and educate the natives. A now hos- pital lias been completed this year, with an accommodation for beds. Tho Chinese women will havo noth- ing to do with male doctors so the staff consists of three lady doctors, three Canadian nurses, livy Chinese nurses, a. bible woman and several native assistants. The hospital ser- ves a territory of ovur a thousand miles besides the city of Cheng-Tu, which lias a population of One and a half cents is the monthly charge for medicine and for each patient, this small sum is charged so that the patients will appreciate the medicine and use it instead of throw- ing it away. A wonderful system has to be used in ordering supplies for the dispensary as the order is received ten months after being sent out and only one order is sent a year. Speaking about the city of Cheng- Tu, Miss Asson told' of the wall of thirteen miles that encloses the city, it is 20 to 40' feet high and "0 feet wide. In fact the wail is the fav- orite promenade and it is wide enough for four carriages to go abreast There are six gates in the walls and these arc closed at sundown and for no reason -whatever are they opened ex- cept by an order of the viceroy. The south gate is for royalty and it is prohibited to take a dead body through this gate to the cemetery which is outside the city. Miss Asson is home on a year's fur- lough after spending five years in tho mission field, she has spent four months at the Toronto General hos- pital taking postgraduate work and leaves this September to spend an- other seven years at Cheng-Tu. Miss Assou spoke on her work to the ladies of Westminster church this afternoon and will give an address in Wesley Hall tonight at eight o'clock. Rev. R. H. Ferguson, late of Port Dalhousie, was inducted ns rector of St. Luke's Church, Hamilton. You fee! safe When you've washed with Lifebuoy Soap.

ALL GROCERS Macleod. June fine shower of rain covered this district this morn- ing and the last few hot days have brought the crops on wonderfully and some of the wheat in the vicinity stands from ten inches to a foot high.

There were fourteen, tables artistically decorated and filled with good things. The young daughters of'the non-commis- sioned officers and constables attend- ed the tables and the munificent sum of 5104.50 was handed to the Red Cross fund.

Calgary, June Bow river is still rising and has reached within four or five inches of last year's ex- treme-mark. There is 110 indication of. a decrease in the volume of -water for a day at least. All points west are recording rises. Last night between and 10 o'clock the river had its fastest rise, climb- ing three Inches during that time. The total rise over night was six inches. The wooden bridge at Centre Street is still standing, chiefly because it has not been strained by drift. More low ground in the city has been flooded, but no property damage has been reported. Some.of the big- ger buildings In the city are beginning to be threatened with flooded base- ments. There is a tremendous mass of water yet to come down. The western rivers are still booming. The Ghost has risen, Cascade erafek is a Dig river, and every mountain trickle is a roaring torrent. The water at Banff is up to the cinder path leading to the cave and basin pools, and the flood iii the canyon at the falls is at least twenty feet deeper than normal time. It shakes the rocks a.s it strikes the level. In the Spray the water is many feet higher, and the Kananaskis is still rising. At the power dams the men in charge are finding difficulty in mak- ing their gauges, owing to the vast quantity of water going through. All through the strip of country affected by the mountain section of the Bow there is big water, but there is not much danger, owing to the peculiar circumstance that practically no drift wood is coming down. Only the wa- ter pressure itself Is straining the bridges, and they can all withstand that. Golden in Danger Golden, B. C., June 9.30 this morning a message was received from AthalmerR, 75 miles up the Columbia valley, stating that the Kootenay riv- er has cut a channel across the nar- row strip of land and.Is now pouring its flood into Columbia. A heavy rise IK expected within the next 48 hours. Warning has been given the residents on the south side to seek safety. The Kootenay Is estimated to be carrying approximately feet of water and may cause the Columbia to flood out the Columbia Lum- ber mill and submerge all the south side of Golden. The gauge shows the Columbia Is rising, being now 2.9 as compared with 2.2 in 1S9-I. The Hood in the Columbia will back up the Kicklng-Horse and a worse condition than the past two days is looked for. Pte. Archie McDiarmid, son of Rev. H. J. McDIarmld, Perth, was killed in action.

The Calgary Local Council of Wo- men placed itself on record as being n favor of conscription for Canada at a full meeting of the council held Fri- day afternoon. The council will also ask the mili- tary authorities to provide the men who have been rejected because of physical unfitness with a distinctive badge of identification and a certifi- cate as a means of assisting the re- cruiting officers in their work and re- lieve the men of emba7'ra3sment, and that anyone found wearing this badge who is not eligible be subject to pun- ishment. The council will further re- commend that badges he provided for women who have a father, husband, son or brother at the front on whom they are dependent for support. That the Calgary Local Council re- commend that the women of the city raise one-half oE the amount necessary for the installation of a filtration plant by means of issuing bonds to house- keepers, was the decision passed after considerable discussion on the present unsanitary condition of Calvary's drinking water. U was felt that the investment would be a good one for women who have a savings account, as they would receive a better.rate of, interest than the savings banks paid. The discussion on the subject arose out of a recommendation brought to the. council by a woman of the city asking the council to take some steps for the improvement of the water. London.

ALLIED PLANS IN FULL 3WING Paris, June recent .Russian successes have afforded great relief to the French people, for it has taken their nttentiou away from'the slaugh- ter at Verdun. The French are en- couraged, because the activity 6E .the Russian's Has shown that the allies are ready, and that the heroic resistance by the French has given the other al- lied armies time'.to iflalee ready for an offensive. The French, being ready first, great- ly served the allied cause by holding the Germans In check until the; Brit- ish and the Russians got ready. 'The British claims that they were ready during the Verdun .battle are prob- ably true, but the chances of success from a 'premature offensive have grown smaller.

PROPER THING NOW iS TO PEEL OFF SOILED SKIN Those who abhor sticky, greasy, shiny, streaked complexions should religiously avoid creams, powders and rouges during the heated days. There's no need for them, anyway, since the virtues of mercolized wax have become known. No amount of perspiration will produce any evi- dence that you've been using the wax. As it is applied at bedtime and washed off in the morning, the com- plexion never looks like a make-up. Mercolized wax gradually.takes off.a., bad complexion, instead of adding anything to make it worse. It has none of the disadvantages of cosme- tics and accomplishes much, more in keeping the complexion beautifully white, satiny and youthful. Just get an ounce of it at your druggist's and see what a few days' treatment will do. Use like cold cream.
