Among others mentioned were automobile joyriding; false advertisement; temptation from overdressing by the privileged classes, etc. The speaker depreciated the mock modesty of parents relative to instruction for bodily purity, to their children. This education should be amplified by a systematized scheme ing either the farmer or his wife. The women of England are doing almost every kind of work on the farm, and �th>y. along with the women of France, have shown that they are as capable in this respect as men. There are Segregated districts should be abolished but with ample and proper provision secured for those affected thereby.

MARTIN BURRELL "If all the women of Canada realized the danger of famine, they would not waste-neither would they want in the future. Now as never before they must produce, and again produce. They must save with all their might. There was never a time when they had a better chance to do great work than now. and their, service lies in field and 'kitohen."-?.lrs. .Martin Bnrrell.

Martin Burrelt. believes firmly in the good old-fashioned doctrine thrift. She thinks the present generation has fallen away from the i-areful, r> ono'.uical ways of the mothers and grandmothers who'spent most of their t itue'within'the four walls of their homes, t-phi.iiius and rooking and at-'ending to the general work of household. tion of food conservation. "It's a thankless task at best. No matter i what a man's intentions are. they are) sure to be misconstrued when he has j to. dictate to the people at large, and; especially when it is in regard to what . they must eat. It's always a hard j matter tcPsay what another person] should do, for each otie has his own ] problems. However. I think that the people of Canada are beginning to realize the need or' economy." 3^s, Durrell doe.- not believe much in hard and fast rules for the whole community, such as would be necessary were compulsory rationing introduced. She believes that everyone should do hi.- utmost in saving, ac-cordin2 to hi- circumstances. "There are ii great many in use. which we think of almost as necessities, that we could easily do with-(jut-candies and sweets of all kinds for instance," said Mr3. Bnrrell. "We need a certain amount of sugar, hut nothing like the quantities commonly used. Of course, it is, easy for one person to say: 'Why-.don'r � you do this?' and -\V1iy don't you do.that.?' the I t'-u himself what he shall do Mrs Burrell. who has lived for years, in British Columbia, proceeded to of women out there who are taking place of their soldier husbands and a running the farms themselves. So many men have gone in some districts that either the farms have been shut down or the women are in charge. Mrs. Burrell spoke of one Englishwoman in particular whose husband was killed at the front. She had been brought up in a luxurious English home, but she turned her hand to the plow as if to the manner born, and she is now running the farm successfully wi*h the help of her children ami -oine old men. But that is not what Mrs Btinvi! calls the new-fashioned woman; rather she is the old-fashioned woman making use of the resoarees around her and meeting her necessity with' the natural supplies at her command. j "It seems to nie that this generation of women loses a lot by living so speedily." she observed. "No' mat we could be expected to go back to ali the old method^, but at least we nrin'at emulate our grandmothers in being better houskeepers and homemakers." ; And then Mrs. Burrell spoke of the days of spinning and recalled beautiful sheets spun by her great-great-graiidmotlier. 'But everything is made in factories now." she commented. "1 do think, however, that after the war there will be more hand production, and 1 certainly think that women will go on oducatlon." His }Vorshtp admitted that law Wa� premised In moral standards, but, that tor no moral" standard could there be claimed a sufficient absolute for enforcement owing to tho numerous and variation of standard. The mayor assured the convention, however that his future administration, as was the past would be marked by as rigid upholding of the law as in possible. liev. Cragg could not agree with tho mayor's position and contended that evidence generally pointed to great laxily re law enforcement. Several others sanctioned Hev. Cragg's opinion. An Excellent Address The Inst address for this session was delivered by A. M. McDonald of Edmonton on the subjejet "Modern Methods of Child Saving" which was by general consent the epitome of excellence. Every point discussed was an intelligent plea for the saving of the child, especially from babyhood which prevented the harder task common to adult life when .habits had become crystallized. Playgrounds were not luxuries, but essentials the speaker declared. Children born out of wedlock must secure equal consideration with others. "Orphans Homes" should be rendered unnecessary by individual adoption. The normal home was tho place for the normal child. The jtiv- III �  HI   III * � HI i enile court should take on the nature ' of a family court to enquire into and i 'fuses and effect remedies, the con- I A psychological expert needed to cal Dis- j study the child and fewer men to study the law. The foregoing were some of the points which were elo-miently discussed by Mr. McDonald, in closing a plea was made for an intelligent recognition of the reported increase of juvenile delinquency of iate. The fact \vast pathetically admitted by another equally true i.e. thai fathers and brothers and organized agencies hitherto potent in a preventative way were "somewhere in Prance." / l.atenes of the hour prevented a dis-cUi-'ion oi tliis important subjejet.

Of all things a sweater coat, which is seen bo much, must be kept, soft, fluffy, fleecy and "new" in appearance. You can keep yours that way and wash it again and again if you do this: Pour boiling water over LUX flakes-pure essence of soap-allowing 3 or 4 tabiespoonfuls for every gallon cf water you u�e. Whip into n creamy lather-a few seconds is needed. T^ien put in the garment and stir it about. Let it soak until cool enough for your hands to squeeze the water out of the coat-the dirt just runs away. Rinse in two or three relays of tepid water, and hang to dry. Very simple. Anyone can do it-just a few minutes' work and you get a result that the most expert-French cleaner might well envy. LUX won't shrink woollens. Won't hurt any fabric or color that pure water can safely touch. At all groctrs >l.

Employers! ous sorl9 are wumerous in all the armies of today. They are of great, variety, although, perhaps, tiny rabbits and black cats made of "lucky" metal are encountered more frequently than anything else. Probably in most cases the lucky charm which a soldier carries is something, sent him by his womenfolk in the homeland-a thimble, a ring. orNa child's, trinket of some kind that has been passed down in the family as a luck-bringer. Among soldiers' superstitions, of which the British soldier has his fuJl share, one of the most characteristic is connected with the number three. "The third time is never the same," is a proverb among the Irish troops "The third of anything is fatal," i3 a-common expression amon-g the English country battalions. Soldiers have teen known to refuse to take their third leave, feeling certain that it will be their last. A soldier's third wound is said to be the one which must be most carefully attended to.

In the remark that there were con3id-1 eration that demanded a prior attention to law enforcement, and that in such enforcement the greatest difficulties were involved, the speaker commanded the fullest acquiescence and sympathy of the congress.
