Having done this he had to go to herd some special cattle and thus bring blessing upon the cattle. Each afternoon he had to.partake o( some sacred meat and thus give his blessing to the food of the country, and he- ends his day by guarding the place from danger until the late hours of the night, Let me give some details In eipla- nation of 'these ceremonies by briefly recounting some ot them. the early morning ceremony when he goes to his bathroom; two yearling bulls, one black the other red and black, are brought to him. Ho takes tho black bull by; tho horns, and placing his fore- head on a white patch on the bull's forehead he asks the Creator to re- move all the evil of the night from him and his people, then taking the red and black bull he asks for blessing, by placing his head against that of the hull as before. Later cornea the ceremony of milk- ing the sacred cows. When these are milked the ceremony of drinking the milk comes, when every person in.tho j royal enclosure must remain still and nulet, not even coughing or clearing the throat on the pain of death. I pass over the cases to the.time when he has to j herd some cows .and thus ensure blessing upon the herds of the land. '.i [n the afternoon.-at about .4 o'clpck, he has to partake of some sacred beef. Before doing so-he beats one beat on each of nine sacred drums, which inr forms the people thai he Is about to enjoins silence; all the people cower and cover their faces wherever they may he. The special cook comes purified, carrying a special fork, and his servant a of meat. The cook kneels In front o( the King, who sits on his throne while the cook pieces ot meat Into his has to be careful lest the fork should touch his teeth, because that would mean death to him. After the meat Is eaten tho sirred herd of cows agafn comes, and after they aro milked the King drinks milk as In the morning. During the past thrco months I hare been engaged in .investigating these- cow customs, and find the people have the most wonderful knowledge of cows, and feel siiro they would DB able to turn this country to proIHabla use with encouragement and, assist- ance from the British.

With a little training they would become expert cowmen and supply Kuropca'n' markets with meal as well as sending butter and cheese.

X DO DA j When The Sea Gives Up Its Dead1 A Talk On Thanksgiving Do you really give What does Thanksgiving mean to you? Has it any spiritual signifi- cance, or is it merely an occasion for feasting? It is not our purpose to preach, but it is our.purpose to bring home to- you some things for which, as a Canadian, you should give thanks. Consider your welfare in contrast to the hopelessness of many Europeans, remembering that but for the spiritual and personal sacrifice of hundreds of thousands of our Soldiers and Seamen, Canada might be suffering as Europe is to-day. Then consider those who still bear the loss of husbands and' and_ sons and who must continue to suffer this loss until the sea givet up its dead. There are, in this country, wives and mothers and children whose husbands and sons and fathers just as surely laid down their lives for Canada's welfare and protection as did soldiers and sailors who died in battle. Canada's Merchant unsung plain, men of. undaunted courage and spirit, who won for their grave the deep. Cypress nor Yew shall weave for them their shade. Their; memory is graven in the lonely hearts of waiting women and uhcom-' prehending childhood. During the war the people of Canada undertook to provide for such as these. _They are the people's charge. The Navy League is merely their are their hope and their refuge. Special After this year, the League expects to cease asking for for the, relief of the Canadian dependents of Merchant Sailors who were killed on Active Service. With the Trust Funds now in hand, together with the sum set aside in the'Budget, to be raised by public subscription this week, it should be possible to establish an endowment, the income from which will be sufficient to provide for these dependents until the need no longer exists, But as many of these dependents are young children, the endowment must continue for a number of years, until they become supporting, J Their Faith it In Yon.
