The last case to be tried was the
luit of the Bank of Parksvlile against ;
Mr. E. B. Dorn. This case attracted
considerable attention, as it is prob'-'
able that other suits of the same
character will be brought. In July,
1020, Mr. Dorn, the defendant, gave
? note for $2?>0? to the Fisheries
Products company of Wilmington for
stock in the company. Soon after the
note was given c it was sold to the
Bank of' Parksville by a representa
ji Hive of the company. When the note
became due Mr. Dom refused pay
x ment, alleging that the note was ob
. tained from him through fraud. He
alleged that the bank hadv informa
tion that the note was obtained from
?lim through fraud at the time it pur
chased the note. 'An officer of the
bank stated during,the trial that the
Bank of Parksville now holds notes
of this character^ aggregating $28,
5,00. The jury rendered a verdict in
favor of the defendant, the maker
of the note, but Judg - oease at once
.set the verdict aside upon* the ground
that it was a negotiable paper and
that the purchaser of the note, ac
cording to the testimony given, did
not have evidence of the alleged
fraud at the time the purches was
The bank was represented by

1 Vital Facts About Cancer.
The American Society for the Con
trol of Cancer issues a leaflet on can
cer in which is embodied the follow
ing information r /
1. During the (Great War the
United States lost about 80,000 sol
diers. During the same two years
180,000 people died ot cancer in this
country. Cancer is how killing oin;
out of every ten -persons over forty
years of age. , 1 1
2. Many vof these* deaths are pre
ventable, since cancer is frequently
curable, if recognized and properly
treated in its early stages.
3. Cancer begjns as a small local
growth which can be entirely remov
ed by competent surgical treatment,
or, in certain external forms, by us-,
ing radium, X-ray or other methods.
4. Cancer is not a constitutional
or "blood" disease; there should be
no thought of disgrace or of "heredi
tary taint" about it.
5. Cancer, is not a communicable
disease. It/is not possible to "cafch"
cancer from one who has it.
J? 6. Cancer is not inherited. It is
not certain e\jen that a tendency to
the disease is inherited. Cancer is so
frequent that simply .'by the-law bf
chance there may be many cases in'
some families, and this gives, rise to
much, needless worry about: inherit
ing the disease. .
7. .The beginning of. cancer is us
ually painless; for thi? reason its in
sidious onset is frequently overlook
ed, and it too often neglected. Other
danger"* signals must be recognized
and" competent ? medical advice ob
tained at once. ' , ?
8. Every persisting' lump In the
breast is a warning sign. All such
lumps are by no mea?s cancer, Dut\
even innocent tunjors of the breast
may turn into cancer if neglected.
9. In women continued unusual
discharge or bleeding requires the
immediate advice' of a competent
doctor. The normal,change of life is
not accompanied by increasing, flow
ing which is" always suspicious. The
return of flowing after it has once
stopped should also be considered
suspicious. Do not expect the doctor
to tell you what the mat?er is with
out making a careful physical exami
19. Any sore that does not heal,
particularly about the mouth, lips or
tongue, is a danger signal, j Picking
and irritating such sores, cracks, ul
cerations, etc.i or treating these skin
conditions by home remedies; pastes,
poultices, caustics, etc., is playing
with fire. Warty growths, moles or
other birthmarks, especially those
subject to constant irritation;, should
be attended to immediately if they
! change in color or appearance, fer
start to grow. Avoidance of chronic
irritation and removal o'f just such
seemingly insignificant danger spots
may prevent cancer.
il. Persistent indigestion in mid
dle life, with loss of- weight - and
change of color, or with pain, vomit
ing, or diarrhoea, call for thorough
and competent medical advice! as to
the possibility of- internal 'cancer.
.12. Radium is a\usefuhand prom
ising means -of treatment for. some
kinds of'cancer, in the hands of the
few skillful surgeons and hospitals
possessing sufficient. quantity cf thjs,
rare and very expensive substance;
it must not be thought of as a cure-all
for every form of cancer.-No medi
cine will _ cure cancer. 3Docrtors and
Institutes 'Which / advertise ; "cures
without the knife*' play upon the-pa
tient's fear of operation in. a. way
that leads too often to the loss , of
precious-time, and fatal delay in
seeking competent treatment. Gp first
to your family physician. ..
13: Open warfare- by open dis
cussion- will mean the prevention of
many} needless deaths^ from ''cancer.
The. common belief that cancer is a
hopeless malady is partly due to the
faciJ that cases of successful treat
ment are frequ?ntly concealed by the
'patient and his family, while cases
of failure (too often .resulting from
delay) are apt to become common
HIGH SILLS CAUSE OF LOSS
Nebraska Breeder Finds That Little
Pigs Are Unable to Follow
' Sows Into Pens.
Many pigs are lost and others are
stunted In growth as the result of ex
posure because of high sills- in 'front
. of hogpens. This is %the observation of
a Nebraska swlne^. grower in a fetter
I to the United . States Department of
Agriculture bn the cause of runty live
stock. He urges that stockmen ex
amine their equipment, and be certain
that small pigs are able to-follow, the
psows into the pens. Attention to bal
anced rations, sanitation, and pure wa
ter are likewise mentioned as meth
ods of preventing runts. .
BENEFIT OF STABLE MANURE
lt Should Be Balanced With Acid
Phosphate, Which fs Com
? . paratively Inexpensive.
Manure contains humus in p|mty
and all the necessary plant materials,
as well as bacteria which put these
materials Into the" most usable shape
for crops. To get thtt full benefit of
stable manure, however, lt should be
balanced with acid phosphate, which
ls comparatively Inexpensive.
KEEPING. HARNESS IN, REPAIR
Neglect Results In- Injury That
Lessens Durability-Sew With
Strong Linen Thread.
Neglect of harness results in Injury
that greatly lessens its durability.
The sewing, which should have been
|vdone with strong waxed linen thread,
must be kept In good condition. All
buckto?' should remain solidly In
place-. It Is advisable, to * wash and
oil harness frequently.
