London, April 29. Premier Lloyd George, speaking in the House of Com mons to day on the subject of the re cent allied conference at. San Remo, .Raid that before (the conference there had been some misunderstandings, seri ous enough in themselves, but made grave by deliberate fomenting on the jmrt of very reckless persona. .''But," continued the premier, "I am glad to say that the sky is once more crear. So far as I can see, everyone is satisfied at what happened at San Remo." The premier declared the conference had been the most remarkable one in every respect held since the armistice. There never had been such a conference as regarded satisfaction with the agree ment by all the parties concerned or i he. happiness which it has been able to bring about, he said. ' Ttie conference, declared the premier, dispelled all suspicion that the treaty of Versailles wag not to be enforced. Mt. Lloyd George said there had been no difference of opinion between the ullies as to enforcement of the treaty. A misunderstanding arose, he declared, over the question as to who should put down the disturbance in the Kuhr. which threatened the peace, not only of Germany, but of Kurope. The French thought it ought to be suppressed by the allies, the premier asserted, but all the others believed it should be left to the Germans. This difference 1ms been settled, Mr. Lloyd George said, and the Germans informed that the moment the German troops in the Ruhr were reduced to the proportion f.xed by the allies last August, the French troops would be withdrawn from Frankfort and Darmstadt.

'The 16th annual meeting of the Montpelier district of the woman's auxiliary' to the missionary work, of the Episcopal church was held at the Church of the Good Shepherd in Barre yesterday, beginning at 9:45. After the celebration of the holy communion the assemblage was greet ed by Rev. David C. Huntington, pas tor of the Barre church, during which ho emphasised the fact that each Chris tian must convert two people in order to evangelise the world within 20 years' tune. In his opinion it is the duty of every person, 11 ne or sue can pot go to the heathen lands to do missionary-work, to pay the entire sup port of a missionary to do the' work thev are necrlectintr. which would mean an expenditure, of $.100 each year by every person to support tnese mission ary workers. To-day there are 1,600,- 000,000 people living in this work and of this number only about one-third, or oOO.OOO.IHMl, are "Christianized, the other two-thirds remaining heathens.

"Mr. Hickson is thor ouahly orthodox, humble and self-sacrificing, looks like a second rate trav eling man, and makes no claims of possessing siiiernstural power. He savs. 'Ood" heals. I do not." But his efforts result in the healing of souls, that is, the forgiveness of sins, after which a large pcrcentaae of his con verts are healed in bid v. "His power of healing was discovered at. the sge of It, when two indisposed relatives visited his father's home, and out of sympathy he touched them. A painful swelling on the face was immediately-relieved and a nervous twitching in the face of another was corrected. His mother told him that he had the power of healing and should make it the sub jest of prayer as the family did about everything, their work, their church work and their plsy. He .did so ' and made, ' two miraculous canrcr cures. This story was told in Christ rhun-h, filled " to overflowing with mini-ters. who ipies tioned him closely, the bill dell of tlieir questions hearing upon the danger of destroying faith through unanswered praver. Hickson 'a answer was that smii faith was not worth considering and he had never met wtn-h a person. Ood always answers prayer in some way.' he said." Mr. Leach was questioned from the floor concerning the subject and gave some very satisfactory answers in all cases. The ofTerinJ taken tip during the morning and afternoon amounted to Miss (trs'-elyn Robinson and Miss Mary.Se.tor gave an interesting re port' on Ihe junior auxiliary work in Barre. which is now said to be the best chapter in the state.

Gren fell to Barre Audience. ' . Dr. 'Wilfred T. Grenfell, noted sur geon in Labrador,' spoke before a large audience in the Congregational church last evening, his lecture being fujly il lustrated with views taken in that frozen country.' Dr. Grenfell came to Barre under the auspices of the Barre Woman's club, and his lecture was much enjoyed. ' , He preceded the showing of the pic tures by a sketch of his life and work. Born and bred in England, he took his degree at Oxford and, realizing that there were many surgeons in" London, he determined to go where no physi-s cian had before been, where he might be of some real use in the world. His first work was among fishermen, which he undertook in 1887, and this work grew very rapidly. In 1892, he was in vited to sail a boat from England to Labrador and the 4th of August he landed there. I'p to November of that year he had treated 900 patients. There was nothing to do with when he first arrived and certain kinds of operations, like making', the blind to see and the lame to walk, had to be delayed until some facilities were prepared for such work. The next year two doctors and I wo nurses went to Labrador to assist Dr. Grenfell, a small wooden hospital was built aud the work grew rapidly. Two lady surgeons are among those now working in that country. Many of these doctors and nurses receive no recompense. Several Vermont helpers have been or are now with him. The war made extraordinary diffi culties and 0,000 of the best boatmen went to France from Labrador and Newfoundland to serve in the waters about that country. Dr. Grenfell him self was with the" Harvard unit for a time, doing what he could to help the solflierL Spring comes so late in the far north ern country that, it was not until duly last year that the doctor was able to get out, and lost one boat in the ice in the attempt. He plans to start back in May of this year, allowing until No vember to leael'i there. Dr. Grens'cll is his own skipper and runs his own boat. The people of Labrador are very simple in their customs, think quickly and have a deep faith in God. They are not Esquimaux, as many think, but people of our own tongue, speaking English and composed of English, Irish and other nationalities such as one might find in many other places. They are patient and self sacrificing and willing to learn, expert in the things they have mastered. About a dozen young men from Labrador are in this country being educated, including two at Hanover, and all these are giving A good account of themselves. One is a strong missionary in China and one has taken several of the higher degrees in 1-ondon colleges. Many, however, of the people cannot read nor write. They make their living principally by ri-liing and trapping, but also build their own houses and boats, and are being taught different trades. At the present time there are five hospitals in Ijibrador, 200 miles apart, with nursing stations between, which are always tilled with the sick and sufferingwho come from miles around for help. There is much tuberculosis, as the people do not know how to com lwt it or prevent it. The greatest amount of good is being done by teach ing the wavs of health to the children in school, they, in turn, passing the knowledge gained on to their parents. One physician spent a whole year go ing about lecturing on this one subject, the prevention and cure of tuberculosis. There are many eye troubles, also, in Ijibrador. Dr. Grenfell paid a tribute to the nurses, sayiuz that in many case they do more than the physicians for tha people. The nursing stations in be tween the hospitals are in charge of nurses, who have full control and do wonders among the people. As to trouble impending between France and Knelsnd or England and the I nited States. Dr. Grenfell thinks it impossible, asserting that there is too imich tine feeling between the peo ple to permit of such a thing. He also made a strong plea for pro hibition, and slated that, in his opinion any man not willing to stand up for prohibition had better stop waving the flag. It is his opinion that it is only a question of time before Kneland, too, will stand on the same platform as the l'nited States on the liquor question. The Mistier of obtaining milk in Ijibrador became a serious one vntl Di. (Jrcnfell solved it by introducing reindeer, which multiplied rapidly.
