THERE IS A BoNE IN THE WAY
The world is tired of w;ar. It wanlts peace-plenty of peace--uniersal
I perpetnal peace-or at, least a majority of us do. But Will we achieve
- desires ? Let us consider.
A hungry (log will always make a dive for a juicy bone. It is the nlatur,
the brute. It will never change. And some (logs are always hungry.. Na
ns are much like dogs. World commerce is their juicy bone. They are all
er it. They will never coase to seek it as long as international relations
st. There will iever be perpetual peace between dogs, beause wherever
.O is a bone there is an objet of strife and contention.
we doubt if there will ever be universal peace among the nations offthe
'th as long as the commercial bone exists, because strife and contention is
erent in mankind just as it is in the (log.
There is little difference between the law of humatn nature aid that of
. brute creation. Each wants the bone, and sooner or later they will light
gain or retain control of it. Universal peace is a beautiful dream and we
tatly desire to see it. I1utt a dream is a reality only while it lasts. We
y rejoice inl the peace of today, but today is never a guarantee for the
rrow. There is a hone in the way.

TWENTY-FIVE NlILES AN HOUR
In Illiniois they are trying to pass a law requiring that every automobile
equipped with a device that automatically prevents a ear from going at a
tater rate of speed than tOwenty%-live miles an hour. It would he well if
:h a law could be enacted in every state. Twenty-five miles is a good rate
speed. It is fast enough for any automobile to go. It is even too rapid
some of our drunken motorists.
If the driver of a car were headed straight for the grave, and knew it, he
uld step on the brake, or pull the emergency. Tventy-five miles an hour
uld throw him into a panic. Ife would want to crawl, to emulate the snail

Mrs. B. F. Louder, Dinken St., Man

kidney trouble about three years ago
which started with smart pains
through the small of my back. Head
aches bothered me a good deal, and
sometimes I was so nervous I couldn't
hold anything in my hand. I was
bothered with dizzy spells, too, and
black specks often came before me, in
fact, I was feeling all out of fix. A
friend told me about Doan's Kidney
Pills and I got some. Doan's not only
helped me but curedt me entirely of
the trouble as I haven't been bothered
