Tho announcement that Peter Vert
pin, the leader of the 10.IMM to 11.0(H)
Russian Dukhobors, or Dukhobortsy,
has declared his intention of returning
to Russia with liis followers has caused
p mild sensation in Canada. Fifteen
years ago a similar announcement
would have been received hv the peo
ple of western Canada with explos
ions of devout gratitude. The Il
literate peasant "spirit-wrestlers," ; s
their name Implies, were disliked as
religious fanatics, who herded to

though peaceable and industrious
peasants, refused to conform to Cana
dian laws and regulations or to ac

in western Canada they are recognize d

The Dukhobor has never been a wan

ns the result of consistent persecution.
Church and state went for him "ham
mi r and tongs," the one telling him
that all religious sects must lie brought
into conformity with established Greek
Catholicism, the other that he must
become a soldier under the conscrip
tion act of 1SS7. At first he complied
with the military law and went off to
battle, but with tlie distinct under
standing between him and the elders
that if he were compelled to discharge
his rifle he would fire it In the air.
For he has always been a consistent
non resistant, and so consistent an op
ponent of war of all kinds that, in exile
!r the Caucasus, tho community threw
away the weapons that had been con
sidered necessary to protect its mem
tors from wild animals.
In the first year of their sifflement
In Canada, the men scattered in order
to earn wages on farms, on railways,
and sawmills. Meanwhile, the women
built the future residences and. l ick

drive them !
Brilliant, in British Columbia, is one
of the great Dukhobor centers and the
socialist's Utopia. Here the commu
nity is wholly self-contained and has
realized something of that equality of
Its component citizens for which there
is so much striving in the world to
day. In contrast to the modern city,
there are no anxieties concerning tlie
source of the next day's needs. There
are evidently no divisions between
"mine" and "thine" no jealousies or en
vies over the possessions of another, for
no man is richer than his fellow. No
money is in circulation. One member
of the executive does all the outside
selling and buying, and all moneys
received are turned over to the
tieasury. Money, in fact, lias no
purchasing value within the commu
nity. All the necessaries of life are
doled out without It by the various
departments in charge. Everybody
has the wherewithal, which is not of
silver and gold, and there is no theft,
any more than there is visible machin
ery of government. The govern
ment is the people. Once a week they
crowd into the large assembly hall and
discuss the affairs of the commu
nity, and the managers of the sev
eral departments are given their in
structions according to popular sen
timent. The Dukhobors possess the
system of initiative, referendum anil
recall in an admirably simplified
form; their officials and tempo
ral representatives hold office as
long as they do their work well.
What Is the explanation of these
peculiar people who live so simply
on a farm or ranch which may
stretch for miles along the road and
stately Columbia river? And can
Canada afford to lose the "sisters"
and "brothers" of a community who
have huilded better than they knew,
who have created a unique state in
the midst of the wild?—Christian

Spanish influenza, which appeared in
Spain in May, has all the appearances
of grip, or la grippe, which lias swept
over the world in numerous epidemics
as far hack as history runs. Hippoc
rates refers to an epidemic in 412
B. C., which is regarded by many to
have been influenza. Every century

Grip, or influenza, as ir is now called,
usually begins with a chill, followed by
aching, feverishness, and sometimes
nausea and dizziness, and a general
feeling of weakness and depression.
The temperature is from 100 to 104,
and the fever usually lasts from three
to five days. The germs attack the

In order to stimulate the lining ot
the air passages to throw off the grippe
germs, to aid in loosening the phlegm
and keeping tiie air passages open, thus
making the breathing easier, Vick's
VapoRub will lie found effective. Hot,
wet rowels should he applied over the
throat, chest and back between the
shoulder blades to open the pores.
Then VapoRub should be rubbed iu
over tin* parts until the skin is red,
spread on thickly and cover with two
thicknesses of hot flannel eloths. Leave
the clothing loose around the neck, as
the heat of the body liberates the in
! gredionts in the form of vapors.
! These vapors, inhaled with each breath,
: carry the medication directly to the
j parts affected. At the same time
j VapoRub is absorbed through and
j stimulates the skin, attracting the
I blood to the surface, and thus aids
I in relieving the congestion within.
j Evidence seems to prove that this is
j a germ disease, spread principally
I by human contact, chiefly through
I coughing, sneering or spitting. So
avoid persons having colds—which
means avoiding crowds—common
drinking cups, roller towels, etc. Keep
iff) your bodily strength by plenty of
exercise in the open air, and good food.
Above all, avoid colds, as colds irri
tate the lining of the air passages and
render them much better breeding
places for the germs.
Use Vick's VapoRub at the very first
sign of a cold. For a head cold, melt a
little VapoRub In a spoon and inhale
the vapors, or better still, use Vapo
Rub in a benzoin steam kettle. If this
is not available, use an ordinary tea
kettle. Fill half-full of boiling wa
ter, put in half a teaspoon of VapoRub
from time to -time—keep the kettle
just slowly boiling and Inhale tho
steam arising.
Note—Vick's VapoRub is the dis
covery of a North Carolina druggist,
who found how to combine, in salve
form. Menthol and Camphor with such
volatile oils as Eucalyptus, Thyme, Cu

VapoRub is comparatively new in
New York State and New England and
a few Western states where it is just
now being introduced, but in other sec
tions of the country it is the standard
home remedy in more than a million
homes for all forms of cold troubles.
Over six million jars were sold last
year. VapoRub can be had in three
sizes at nil druggists. It Is particular
ly recommended for children's croup
and colds, since It is externally applied
and therefore can be used as freely as
desired without the slightest harmful
