The Episcopal Church has long been ministering to the Indian pop ulation of the country in its isolated but rather compact groups, due with thej iminent scattering of the Indians among the white popula tion, comes a still more pressing demand, a demand which the Church will endeavor immediately to meet. Medical aid, schools, re ligious instruction and vocational training are all means to the end of making thef Indian ready for modern Christian society, accord ing to the vast program of activities as laid down by the -preliminary survey of the Nation-Wide Cam paign. - .v.i " Nurses and physicians will preach the gospel tf clean and sanitary living conditions, and treat the In dians for their bodily ills.

It is desirable that all com - Imerclal banks, firms jand corpora tions participate in this bank. The bank will have branches abroad in the form of trading departments.

"As far financial regulation of the ruble, we shall have to devaluate It and consider it worth whatever it will j buy in the home market and its aver age value in the foregin market. "It is the moral duty of the allies to aid us to get a part of "the contribu tion which Germany will pay. They should also help us to pay the interest on those loans which we raise abroad la their own countries.

Both parties as a rule favor avoiding ! the making Of a clear cut political Issue out of the peace treaty and the league of nations, at least for the pres ent, because it has been found impos sible up to this time to determine what the people think about it and may think a year hence. Public opinion is undergoing such rapid chaiges regarding public poli cies that the members of the Repub lican national committee are urging that no attempt be made at the meet ing next week to place the party on record respecting issues and policies fearing that issues which appear al luring now may be unpopular in a few months. They favor, simply set ting the place and date for the con vention and letting matters of policy go over until later. Only the members of the senate who have taken a leading part in the constant consideration of the peace treaty for the past six months and have had their hearts and souls wrap ped up in it are insisting that their party take its position on the peace treaty as the foremost party principle in the next campaign. Senator Lodge, who led the fight against the treaty for the Republicans, and Senator Hitchcock, leading advo cate of the treaty for the Democrats. are each insisting that the great masses of the people share their views and will send down to overwhelming defeat any party that holds contrary opinions. Senator Borah, one of the leaders of the "irreconcilibles," feels so strongly about the matter that he threatens to quit the Republican party unless it takes a stand against the treaty. The Democratic national committee will have an advantage in meeting one month after the Republicans have had their confab in Washington. The Democrats will know by January 8, their meeting date, how matters stand with respect to the peace treaty and the league of nations in the new ses sion of the senate. They will also know whether .the Republicans have taken up the treaty issue or side stepped it. They can then arrange " their own program to meet the steps taken by the Republicans. A dozen Republicans are expected to announce their candidacy in. the next eix weeks. An equal number of Demo crats would like to announce : if they could be sure President "Wilson will not be a candidate. kindergarten work . in the home, news paper writing, retail advertising, review courses, rural sanitation and salesman ship, v Correspondence courses in high school subjects .--are given in English, Latin, American and English history, civics, mathematics and commerlcal law for those preparing for college and for business positions.

Omsk, Dec. 7. Unification of the various kinds of paper money which have been issued by the several gov ernments opposed to the Bolshevik!, is advised by Finance Minister De rubles in paper money, up to Septem ber 1, 1919. These are not credit notes but treasury obligations, and therefore M. De Hoyer considered them to be of secondary . value. They are poorly printed and have been so cleverly counterfeited that even the state bank itself cannot distinguish the real from the false. For this reason, said M. De Hoyer, the Romanoff currency issue is valued four times higher than that of the all-Russian government. The finance minister said that the government of the volunteer - army (General Denikine's) had issued 3,300, 000,000 rubles in bills from, the Rostoff office of the state bank. In south Russia there are 45,000,000 rubles of Crimean paper money. The northern (Archangel) government has issued notes to the value of 130,000,000 rubles and there are also obligations of the so-called confidence loan of 70,000,000 rubles. The minister said that the American Banknote Company has now at last handed over to the Russian govern ment 1,500,000,000 rubles of paper money. As soon as possible this would be sent to South Russia, but the min ister declared it would be impossible .v uigainic uuuicauon wi j currency before January 1. 1920. A unification of the budgets of all these various governments would also have to be arranged, he said. "As the armies move forward the question will arise as to what to do with all the money in Soviet Russia, amounting to '100,000,000,000 to 200, 000.000,000 rubles, a debt which the Russian government cannot take uponJ itself," said M. De Hoyer. Tt will be necessary to consider what is to be the comparative rate between our bills and those of Soviet Russia." The government will. have to nego tiate loans bothat home and abroad to meet the demands now being made- on the exchanges, Mr. De Hoyer con tinued. English and ' Japanese banks have already been approached on the subject. Plans for an Internal loan, to take the form "of a lottery, are already In hand. The tickets and obligations have been received from America. This loan will be for 2,000.000,000 rubles to be put out In 200,000,000 -issues at two month intervals "if the Bolshe vik! are pushed back to the Urals." The prizes are to be paid In American printed notes at the rate of 100 rubles for every 300 or 400 rubles of treas- ii fC'lllcr 111 fCI I'll frlt.INJiVhJi it's up to you to W 11.1 1 - acta tfie good taste, use : ga 1 Your Grocer also carries Gibbs Apple Jellv.
