"The Vocalion sounded/the first. , .notes . . . 1 . 1 . "Have you ever been really thrilled ,by music from a phonograph ? I 'never had until that moment. The tones the Vocalion was bringing from the record were true violin tones -none of the richness, the appealing qualities produced by tha master's bow were lost. "Record after record was played for me. I sat entranced, gripped by the marvelous naturalness. "Then I fried the Graduola, the Vocalion expression device I had heard so much about. I drew the tone to a fine pianissimo, X pressed it to its fullest volume-I controlled/ the voice of the record. , "The pleasure of it?-It isn't de-scribable. You must try it yourself.

Don't ru&it in. Just let it penetrate naturally. What a ense of soothing relief soon follows I External aches, stiffness, soreness, cramped muscles, strained sinews, back "cricks"-those ailments can't light off the relieving qualities of Sloan's Liniment. Clean, convenient, economical. Made in Canada. Ask any druggist for it. Li xx imcnt Kills Pairt MOTHER! YOUR CHILD IS GROSS, FEVERISH, ? * * * * * * * "less sweaters ? * and more letters" * * ? * * * * * ? ? * * * * * * * * ? ? There 1b no one tiling that needs more constant urging than the plea that you write, write, to your soldier In France, says W. L. Stidger writing from France in Outlook magazine. He would rather have letters than candy or cigarettes, or presents of any kind, as much as he loves some of these material things. God pity the careless mother or sister or father or friend who isn't willing to take the time and make the sacrifice that is needed to supply a letter at least three times a week to is �Willing to sacrifice his all, If need be, tbMtithose at home may live in' peace irefe- from the horror of the Hun! "Less sweaters And more -letters" might very well Ijejthe motto of the folks here at home, for the boys would profit more in the long run both in their bodies and in their souls. A censor friend of mine said, to me one day: "If you ever get a chance when you go home to urge the people of America to write, and write, and write to their boy^'flo It "with all your heart. You could do no' better service to the boys than ,tjiat." "I have seen .boys suffering from wounds of every description," says Stidger. "I saw them lying in hospitals with-, broken backs. I have seen them with blindejj, eyes. I have seen them with legs gone and arms. I have seen them when "the doctors were dressing their wounds. I remember one captain who had 50 wounds in his back, and he had them dressed without a single cry. I have seen them gassed and I have seen them shot to pieces with, shell shock, and yet the worst suffering I have seen in Prance has been on the part of boys whose folios back home have neglected them; boys who day after day had seen the other fellows get their letters regularly; boys who had gone with hope in their hearts time after time for letters, and then had lost hope. This is real suffering, suffering that does more to knock the morale out of a lad than anything that I know in France." Speeding em %y9d *6ccca* The best way to get the most work out of the "human ' engine" is to give it the food that has the most energy in it. Of all foods, certainly this means FRY'S COCOA -the great food beverage that is all delicious nourishment. If you have to work harder these days, try a regular course of FRY'S. You will need less of other and more expensive foods. There is concentrated strength for muscle and brain in every single cup. Truest economy-use FRY'S I SET hospital on fire With the American Army Northwest of Verdun, Sept. 30.-German counter attacks against the advancing Americans were frequent late yesterday. Enemy resistance was particularly evident, in the vicinity of Exer-mont. and Cierges. Just before midnight it was reported that the Germans had shelled the American field hospital at Bethin-court and had set it on fire. If Tongue is Coated, Breath Bad, Stomach Sour, Clean, Liver and Bowels. Give "California Syrup of Figs" at once-a teaspoonful today often saves a sick child tomorrow. If your little one is out-of-sorts, half-Bick, isn't resting, eating and acting naturally-look, Mother! see If tongue is coated. This is a sure sign that its little stomach, liver and bowels are clogged with waste. When cross, irritable, feverish, stomach sour, breath bad or has stomach-ache, diarrhoea, soro throat, full of cold, give a~ tea-spoonful of "California Syrup of Figs," and in a few hours all the constipated poison, undigested food and sour bile gently moves out of Its little bowels without griping, and you have a well, playful child again. Mothers can rest easy after giving this harmless "fruit laxative," because It never fails to cleanse the little one's liver and bowels and sweeten the stomach and they dearly lovo its pleasant taste. Full directions, for babies, children of all ages and for grown-ups printed on each bottle. Beware of counterfeit fig syrups. Ask your druggist for a 50-cent bottje of "California. Syrup of Figs"; then Bee that it 1st mail* fey the "California Fig Syrup Co;CW.m'i"K.-A.dv�l^3>e^e� t. ON CARDSTON LINE C. P. R. Announces That New Car on Way Freight Will Cany Mail Announcement was made at the general offices of the C.P.R. this morning that the accommodation car being placed on the Cardston way-'froigbt will handle mail in future. As this car will go down on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays Cardston will again have a daily mail. The way freight usually reaches Cardston about six o'clock in the evening. This may be too late for tho distribution of the mall on tho day of Us arrival but it will be available first thing the following morning, so that letters may ho answered in time to catch the regular mail coming out the next day at noon. Cardston people will now get their daily papers daily instead"of two at a time. The service will be considerably better in the other towns along the line. From what the Herald can learn the people on the Cardston branch are not going to be satisfied, with anything less than the (jaily yegwjais j)assen"gei-, but the new arran^omMit'fc.ill bp con-, siderable of an improvement over the jjjfcu put ^4>o effect on Aug. l-S, PASSENGERS MEN OFF BY THE FIREMEN Vancouver , Oct. 2.-The steamer Camosun, which ran ashore last night, with i:> passengers on board, during a dense fog, was not floated on this morning's tide, but it is expected to get her off this afternoon. The passengers were taken off This morning by the city firemen, their long ladders being UBed to give access to the shore of Stanley Park. The crew is staying on the ship, which :s not in any danger. When the fog lifted partially thiB morning, it was seen that the tug Kildonan had gone on the rocks near the Camosun some time during the night. The tug was not badly damaged. ALL DIFFERENCES NOT YET SETTLED Striking Freight Handlers Receive Award Only From 1st of September office men and the C.P.R. is decidedly hazy today following the announcement of the granting of Amendment No. 7 of Clause 27 of the McAdoo award. It was this award which the freight handlers recently struck for. Now that it is granted a different face is put on the dispute, but everything is not cleared up. The award was made retroactive only to .Sep... 1, whereas the men are asking that it be retroactive until May 1st. Recognition of the union iB another matter of difference between, the com- pany and the men.';-"/' ' .'

Whether: the; union in other cities will demand the -dismissal 0/ the new employees and the reinstatement of the old is a question, and .a strike may yet result before a settlement is reached. Some of the men who went on strike here will have their monthly salaries reduced. Others will receive a con siderable increase. Section men will receive a fairly large increase.
