Andrew's Parish Church are holding a social in the St. Andrews Hall, 49th and Fraser. Cards and dancing will be on the programme for the evening and good music has been arranged for. The women are commonly broad shouldered, muscular, bard fisted and capable of great exertions. Moreover, they retain their vigor to a very advanced age, so that it is not surprising that- a woman of sixty should be fighting. It was the vigorous old age enjoyed by the people ol Servia and Bulgaria that led Professor Met- cbnikoff to develop his peculiar theories of combating premature old age among civilized peoples.
Tlie German and Austrian soldiers arc confronted with the terrible duty to many, it is undoubtedly a pleasant duty of bayonetting women, old and young, grandmothers, fighting in defer '; of their homes and tillages. A prominent Servian in America, '. Palcndech, has declared that , Servian women would take the field against the Germans and Austrians. In tbe two preceding Balkan wars an organization of Servian women called the "Legion of Death. Xcxt to the Servians, the Russians have put the largest number of women soldiers into the field.

The Warsaw correspondent of the Dyen, a Petrograd newspaper, declares that large numbers of women have been captured, wounded and ttn- wounded, wdio bad been serving in the German army. They appear to belong to the upper classes. This is only natural, as the soil audit homes of Great Britain have not as]] yet been attacked in a manner that calls for women defenders.

Bruce is not a politician, lias never been a politician and some friends say that lie never will be a politician. This is ihe best recommendation that he hears. While knowing little of the mysteries of playing both ends against the middle, Mr.
Rruce can foot up a column of figures quicker than any man in his office. He can figure out freight on a cargo of lumber quicker than any of his hook-keepers. If it comes to giving an estimate for a house, a store, or a sidewalk, Mr. Bruce knows that "it's the overhead that eats a man up," and he knows that a dollar spent should bring back a dollar and a few cents worth of value. That's the way he runs his business and that's the way lie would run the business of the Municipal Hall if he were elected reeve.
Bruce we find a gentleman who is singularly opposed to trying to please all hands. He doesn't believe in that way of doing business. Whatever our opinions upon the liquor question may be, the stand of Bruce at that time was more or less of a manly stand. He had been sent abroad to endeavor to secure industries for Smith Vancouver. Here was a brewery industry. The law saitl that breweries might operate in British Columbia, so Bruce saw no reason why South Vancouver shouldn't have a nice little brewery. I le brought it back with him and was roundly condemned in many quar ters for his actions.
Bruce was horn in Ayrshire, al Irvine, a lew miles from the cottage of Rabbie Burns. Ile was brought up in Liver pool, and came lo Vancouver thirteen years ago to do rough labor in the yards of the Royal City Mills. He learned the lumber business from the piling lo the sale of lumber to ye prairie farmers. He became efficient in his line and so has prospered and has risen. That is a serious matter which should he closely investigated. Some people believe that "no such man should be trusted.
This is strange, because lew Tories see much io hi- proud of in certain Liberal papers. Bruce is a Tory, then, and a Presbyterian. Cos urn Bruce as lhe mosl likely iii lhe lot.

Bruce in do inn see a perfect man. We know, however, that he i- a good man in his business, and is a man of integrity in every day affairs, lie did a mosl undiplomatic act in associating himself with the plan to give a brewery privilege to operate within the boundaries of the district. Bruce's opponents in the race for the reeveship are equally as guilty as he in regard to the matter of liquor leg islation.
In conclusion, it might be said that Mr. Bruce has lived lor a number of years in the municipality and is the head of a family. He has a reputation for abstemious habits and for honesty and uprightness. Bruce is not a good politician, has never been a politician, and some friends say he never will be a politician.
This is the best recommendation that he hears.

Holden, director of educational work for the International Harvester Company, says: Education is derived from all our surroundings and experiences, and can not be limited by any set term of years, nor any place nor system.
It is a progression all through life. Education has been defined in many ways according to the age and the country in which the teacher lived; but when it is all summed up, we find that what people need is the kind of teaching which will make it possible for them to do their part in the world's work.
At Omaha, the Chairman of a meeting once asked me, 'Why is it that you are preaching coin throughout Iowa? Brother, don't you know that the corn side of people is bigger than the angel side? There are six thousand ministers preaching from the angel's point of view. Don't you knew that the ministers have only one day in the week to preach, and that is on Sunday? And only one hour on that day, and I have six days?
Books are tools, like an ax to the woodsman. They are great conveniences, but ihey are nol thc end. Is the ax the end? No, they are the means to an end. Education is fitting for the duties of life, and not all the duties are to be found in books. Work makes better citizens physically, spiritually, morally, intellectually, economically. For two thousand years the world has been working and feeding itself. Food is the chief material concern of life, and it is important that the citizen Le able to feed and clothe himself.
Otherwise, degeneration follows, and he becomes a burden on society. The world itself is a great institution of learning, r nd all the people in it are teachers.

The deliberating must have been done by Von Tirpilz. On the staff of a Toronto daily paper there is an advertising man who is Scotch and a Presbyterian and holds views in accord with such an inheritance of race and religion. It so happened that h was sent out to get an advertisement from a tobacco dealer who was starting a new store on Vonge Street and was making an advertising splash..
It also so happened that the advertising man did not approve of the smoking habit. What should he do? Take an advertisement that his conscience told him was likely to result in the spread of an evil habit?
It was a tough tug on his Presbyterian principles, but bis Scotch thrift could not permit him to pass up tbe advertisement altogether. So he compromised with his conscience. He would not take a big display advertisement. He undertook to write Wije advertisement for the tobacco man, and thc lattcr's amazement may be better imagined than described j when the advertisement appeared, as follows: After that the dealer vrote his own advertisements.

Rather than place responsibility for harassment squarely on the shoulders of the perpetrator, the Aunt Tom upholds the view that every woman in the office besides her is a potential victim and, therefore, a lawsuit waiting to happen. Those women just don't understand the big harassing boss like she does.
Those women won't protect the big sexual deviant boss like she does. And, yes, she serves the Big Boss Examples of Aunt Toms include private investigators from Black Cube who impersonated women's rights advocates to meet with and gather information about actress-accuser Rose McGowan. Also, a Black Cube spy who played a phony journalist who contacted actress-accuser Annabella Sciorra to test to see if she would reveal Weinstein's rape.
Even lawyer Lisa Bloom the daughter of celebrity attorney Gloria Allred strayed from her pursuit of women's rights and signed on briefly to represent predatory producer Harvey Weinstein as reports of decades of sexual harassment and assault accusation unfolded.

Lisa Bloom explained, "From my perspective, I thought, 'Here is my chance to get to the root of the problem from the inside. I am usually on the outside throwing stones. Here is my chance to be in the inside and to get a guy to handle this thing in a different way. Aunt Toms calculate the payoffs of partnering up knowingly with sexual abusers in order to self-promote. Then are dismayed when and if their private cooning proves to be a public liability.
Aunt Toms are predictably shallow, self-interested, wannabe predators with a pack mentality. There were assistants setting up actresses with hotel room "business meetings" for Weinstein. Women journalists and Human Resources staff recruited interns and young staffers to work with Roger Ailes. And, of course, there are Aunt Tom women who took the Weinstein and Ailes pay-for-play offers. In the end, the Aunt Tom goes along to get along, fuelling the perception that "this is just how the game is played.
