William Patterson, a Scottish farm er. was the founder of London's great institution in Threadneedle street, the Hank of England. His plan for a na tional bank was submitted to the gov ernment in 10D1, but it was not till three years later that the chancellor of the exchequer. Mr. Montague, and Mr. Michael Godfrey, one of the richest merchants in London, put the scheme into operation. At this time England was at war with France, and Godfrey, who was the bank's first deputy gov ernor, left his peaceful occupation to visit Nauiur, then being vigorously be sieged by the English forces under William 111. Godfrey had undertaken this perilous journey iu order to con sult the king respecting the supply of money to the army necessary to carry on the war.

You are a civilian and can be of 110 use here." "True." courteously replied Mr. God frey, "but I a in no more exposed than your majesty." "\et." returned the king, "1 am in my duty, and therefore have a more reasonable claim to preservation." At this moment a cannon ball, fired from the ramparts, struck Michael Godfrey and killed him instantly. This sad event greatly affected Wil liam, and lie commanded the body to be taken to England, where it was laid to rest in St. Swithin's church, near the Itank of England.

CZAR MAKKS kK AT SACRIFICE In an official order Czar ?iicholas of Russia declares that 110 more vodka shall ever be sold in Russia. Vodka is the Russian drink. It is far stronger than whiskey or mes cal and from its sale the Russian government has in the past derived the greater part of its revenues. The poorer classes of Russia have suffered terribly from drunkenness because of the maintenance of vod ka shops. When, the war started the Czar stopped the sale of vodka as a precautionary measure. He feared his men might not be tract able should they be allowed access to any intoxicants. The prohibi tion order had not been in long saving in freight. These are some of the reasons we are now sell Iron Beds 1 Way Rail Joint beds used in military hospitals.

The soldiers became more manly and their physical condition was im proved. The peasants showed pro gress and men and women who were living in filth and squalor took a new lease on life so that in all directions the benefits of prohibi tions were plainly apparent. This caused the czar to issue the ukase, forever forbidding the sale of any intoxicating liquors in the domains of Russia. Now if prohibition is good for Russia and Great Britain, which also has tightened up the. liquor laws, why is it not good for this country. The advocates of the saloon argue that if prohibition prevails thousands will be thrown out of employment.

Thousands are out of em ployment because of the open sa loons and thousands are holding subordinate positions who would be higher up the ladder but for liquor. Then it must be taken in to consideration that millions of dollars which are squandered in the saloons deprive wives and mothers and childrens of food and raiments. No one can defend the saloon except with sophistry. The saloons and liquor business are in defensible.
