She has 3,500,000 more acres under cultivation than ever before, and is taking steps to increase pro duction.

What scenes are enacted In every old. stuffy rail way station and on all the long railway platforms! Has there ever been such a holiday time In all the world as the one this year! Winter hah always been the time of home festivals, the time of glow ing hearts and leaping (1res, of tables laden with the spoil oT the fields, the forests and the waters; winter holds all of the great festivals In his snow-covered, Ice-bound arms.

(Johns Hopkins University) N YCTALOPIA or night Mtndneos, which boa Just come under tne itudy of medical research work, Is more analogous to oun lillndnee* than to any oth er type of blindness. The photographic layer« of the retinas of the eyes of soldiers and sailor* who, during th# world war, were compelled to work and live In the blaokness of Hghtless nights, dark dugouts and trench##, became so saturated with black that in many case* they lost their sensitive ness to light.

It coat® th® retina or lnn®r wall of eyeball. Upon it Is Impressed the phan tasmagoria of fleeting events. It be comes bleached and quickly used up in too bright a light. A period af rest Is then necessary to restore it. Too much blackness and darkness, on th® other hand, oversaturates ths ual purple.*' with the resultant danger of nlp.ht blindness, or shutting out of aJl impressions. Temporary nyctalopia, like ths mo mentary sun blindness of snow-covered landsrapo, is frequent and fleeting Is only when horedltary. congenital and permanently acquired night blindness af fects men that it becomes a serious men ace.
