PAYS STRONG TRIBUTE
TO DR. W. T. GRENFELL
Francis Bowes Sayre Gives Illus
trated Lecture on
Labrador.
Tells of Personal Experiences Among
People of Bleak Northland.
Mission Work Belated.
I've seen Dr. Grenfell put out to
sea on nights when no other skipper
on th ? coast would dare to do it. and
he runs farther north than any of
them, said Francis Bow?s Sayre, son
in-law of President Wilson, yesterday
in an illustrated lecture on the nat
ural and socl l conditions on the bleak
Labrador coast Mr. Sayre. who was !
introduced by Henry B. F Macfarland.
was heard by an audience that filled
to overflowing the small ballroom of
the Willard. He spoke from personal
experience, having been a volunteer
companion of the noted physician-mis
sionary in his work among: the pov
erty-stricken and often suffering in
habitants of that territory.
Mr. Sayre described Labrador as a
lonely and desolate land, whose three
main characteristics are rocks, ice and
fog. and whose scattered inhabitants
subsist principally on the whale. seal,
walrus and various lish?-s. Eskimos
and whit*' English-speaking people,
with at times a few Norwegian whal
ers. composr its population, he said,
which is greatly enlarged during the
summer months by the fishing schoon
ers fr??m Newfoundland.
Introduced New Occupations.
If the fishing season is a poor one.'
?a:d Mr. Sayre. "famine stares them In
the face, and Dr. Grenfell, therefore, in
addition to his ojher accomplishments,
has been introducing new trades and oc
cupations. in ?>rder that they may have
something to fall back upon.
" About fishermen from Newfound
land spend tl.* summer on the roast,
and. up to Dr. lirenfell's coming and the
establishment of his hospitals and hos
pital ship ,*d not the slightest means
of preventing sickness or treating in
juries.
"He has bui'.t four hospitals, with head
quarters at St. Anthony>; has establish
ed a. sawmill. ,i nurse's ho;i* und sev
eral co-operative stores. He is constant
ly on the move in hia hospital ship, the
strathcona, alleviating suffering, giving
Instru .tion making friends with the fish
ermen and S'-Ttiing their disputes, tor.
.;i addition i" . ? a missionary, physi
cian. surgeon .1 ?; a master mariner, he
is the only magistrate 011 the coast. '
Dr. Grenfell's First Hospital.
The lecturer told how the missionary |
'1 st heard stories of the hardships of the
region and spent a summer in a little
launch starting the work to which he :as
given his life: how he raised money and
finally established his first small hospital!
at Battle Harbor, and how last year the
four hospitals cared for cases and
the Strathcona for a thousand more.
'.R? work included the estab-.
. ishment ot an orphanage which now
"area t< r lorty children whose parents
have r?een claimed by the sea or by dia-1
ease. He has established recreation and'
charitable institutions in St. Johns,
where. heretofore, nothing but the rum
shops offen d any attractions for the sea
men w ho were in after their voyages
with t!.. result that the hold of the sa
loonkeener on the fishermen has greatlv
loosened, ard he has (ntrodu< e.-d reindeer
Into the I?abrador country for the pur-1
pose of establishing a permanent and
convenient meat and milk supply.
Strange t" Kiv, according to Mr Savre i
the greatest evil that is to be fought is
tukerculoMM. for. while the people are
naturally hardy and Htronu. the winters
are so cold that they icnorantlv coop

? all an easy prey to that disease.
Offered Three Wives.
Mr. Sayre displayed a picture of three
>:sk;mo belles, any or all of whom were
i>Tered IjIm .-is wives on one occasion.
Arid told of the almost pathetic pleasure
o. an old man, who had long lived hy
k.imse!f on the west coast of Newfound
land. When he visited him. "He gave us
It meal , of food that was to ha., lalted
Hra aloriK time and joyfully produced a
>et of dominoes with th- explanation
that -,e Has particularly fonri of that
same. .,ut had had no or., to play against
him for many years."
The speaker showed a number of in

A Simple Sum
A man bought a lot of chairs
at $?'? ea> h, and at the end of
a v eek he had sold ten of them
at $!<? apiece, making a profit
of
The second week he spent
to advertise them in the news
paper and sold twice as many
at the same price as before.
Flis profit this week was JGO.
The customer paid no more, yet j
the dealer made 50 per cent
greater profit.
Advertising decreases the cost j
of selling things by increasing I
the demand. Try it.
