Government Paper Controller About to ^ Order Cutting Off of Unpaid Sub-scr^tions. At a public hearing In Ottawa last week In connection with paper con-sBrvatlon, the Government ' Paper Controller tor Cunada.

Captain Hon. R. I. MacDonald, oniy surviving son of Lord MacDonald, has died of wounds. LOOKED ON AS jStald businessmen laid aside their dignity last lUght and Jollied with aljout 2000 boys and girls In the ceremony of burning.the remains of Kaiser BUI. It was an event that will not be forgotten for a long time by the boys and gtrls of the city, . When the big Victory Loan parade was held a week ago last Monday one of the features was the Kaiser on a hearse. At that time it was announced that when the Lethbrldge Victory Loan quota was,-oversubscribed the Kaiser would be burned. That happy time was reached on Tuesday and on Wednesday evening the ceremony was staged. The Rotary Club was in charge of the proceedings. ; At 7:30 Chief Hardy Vl-sited Victory Loan headquarters In 'the Southard Block and officially arrested the mortal remains of the Beast oC Berlin, which had been lying in state, on a bed of Russian thistles all day. Then bearipg the body the chief headed a procession. Following him came the famous Rotary jazz band, and behind them came fi4 boys bearing torches. The rear was brought up by about 2500 interested citizens, mostly boys and gtrls, and the procession headed for the'vacant lot opposite the 'city hall, where the makings oC a great bon-flrfi had been prepared during the day. In the centre a tall post had been set up, and to this the remains of the Kaiser were nailed. Gasoline was plentifully used on the accumulated refuse and a torch applied. Within a few minutes the fierce mustaches of the Kaiser caught fire and dropped off,' Shor^ o� Ms glory it wasn't long before he 'was a seething mass of flames, and as the bell' In the post-office tower struck eight the remains tumbled into a mass of' flames, as a great cheer rose from thousands ot throats; ' �� The whole scene 'was ..yevy realistic and was a fitting mark of Lethbridge's feat in being the first Western Canada city to go over the top in the campaign for silver bullets to be used against the Kaiser.

At the outset, headaches and backaches are frequent. Cloths (m,olst but not dripping) to the he^d, changed frequently give 'some relief. Avoid anything that might cause the slightest chill. Care of^ mouth; a mouth wash every few hours And cold cream to the lips help to keep the mouth In a normal condition; if patient ip extremely weak, swab the teeth carefully with moistened cotton application's three times daily. Coughing patients should keep mouth covered when coughing, paper napklits or three thicknesses of toilet paper used only once, are safe Jind better than rags or handkerchiefs. Keep-a small paper bag pinned to bedside, within easy reach of patients hand, to receive the used napkins. Change bag at least twice dally, or whenever it become^ half full. .

Attendant must keep facilities for washing her own hands, soap, nail brush and paper towels .In clean Place and, never touch the patient or t patients utensils without afterward cleansing her / own hands thoroughly. Running water is better and safer than a baslnot weak disinfectant kept for the hands alone. Everything used for the pat-lent should be kept separately from the. supplies for the res^ of the household. This means dishes, bed liuen, bath wrappers, towels, face cloths, rocking chair, etc. . ~ Families can help visiting nurses and aids by having hot water towels, and newspaper ready when nurses are expected.
