A lady from Kansas sends a very
personal question: "Have you,"
she asks, "ever known of any in

The answer Is, Yes. And this -is
Years ago when my reverend
friend Dr. William Goodell Frost
left his comfortable professorship
of Greek at Obertin College to take
the presidency of the struggling
little college at Berea, Kentucky,
hla friends thought he had made
a terrible mistake. X
The buildings were old and dilap
idated. The faculty was underpaid.
There were plenty of debts, and no
Income. The president, in addition
to his scholastic duties, was ex
pected to ride the rails from city
to city and beg funds to meet the
Frost was a seer and a prophet.
He knew the sterling character of
the Kentucky mountain people; he
was thrilled by the vision of what
Berea College could mean to them.
Full of courage, he journeyed up to
Cincinnati and called upon the
pastor of the leading Protestant
"Will you Invite some of the gen
erous people of your city to a meet
ing and let me tell them about the
needs of the mountains?" Frost
"Oh, no," replied the pastor. "I
couldn't think of that!"

Canada's census of 1931 has just
been completed and It shows the
total population of the Dominion to
be almost exactly ten million per
sons. That is an Increase of about
fourteen percent in ten years,
which is a fairly rapid rate of
growth a faster rate, in fact, than
the United States showed between
1920 and 1930. It is not very many
people, however, to populate Can
ada's enormous area. The Domin
ion has 3,690,000 square miles,
which is 660,000 square miles larger
than the United States. Our pop
ulation is about thirty-eight per
sons to the square mile, and Can
ada's is fewer than three persons
to the square mile.
This vast and largely undevelop
ed area to the north of us still holds
immense possibilities for the pion
eer and the explorer.
We hear a lot about vltamlnes
and the necessity of eating foods
containing them, but few people are
able to keep the list in mind. Here
Is a simple, concise list of the com

cheese, eggs, green vegetables
(spinach, lettuce, etc.), yellow veg

"No. We have a positive rule
that the Sunday morning service is

"Well, I don't suppose you get
many people out in the evening,"
Frost persisted, "Will you let me
speak Sunday evening?"
Again the preacher refused.
"How about Wednesday evening
"Well, then, will you pray for the
mountain people and the success of
the college?" Frost demanded.
The preacher Bald he thought it
would be hypocritical for him to
ask the Almighty to help a cause
to which he could give no aid him

nothing to help us, will you join
me in prayer for your church and
The pastor could not refuse.
Down on their knees they went to
gether, and Frost proceeded to send
up to the Pearly Gates not only a
prayer for the church but a most
eloquent and moving presentation
of the needs of the Kentucky moun
taineers and the little college that
was struggling to help them.
When the prayer was finished the
preacher's eyes were full. "You
must come to my church Sunday
morning," he said. "My people
must hear you."

The life insurance companies of
the United States paid more than
two thousand million dollars; to
their policy holders and beneficiar
ies last year. There is about three
times as much life Insurance in
force today as there was ten years
ago. There are literally millions
of men who are providing estates
for their dependents after they die,
and comfort for themselves In old
age, by no other means than setting
aside a fixed percentage of their in
comes for life insurance premiums.
A good rule for anybody buying

the nation was shocked; there was
almost universal mourning. The

WHY did he have "heart disease?"
There is a cause for every effect
My answer Is, OVERFEEDING AT
IMPROPER HOURS. Protein food
is not to be trifled with. The six
o'clock dinner is NEVER perfectly
digested in the full-grown human
being. Eating heavily at this hour
is deadly, if persisted in by the
aging man. Note the "sleepy spell"
coming on at unseemly hours the
forerunner of apoplexy. The six
o'clock diner is almost universally
overweight has "adipose" stowed
away about him to last a year

alcohol! The wonder is, when will
men learn better, and stop this
American blight of "heart disease?"
Still, "gluttony and, Ignorance"
wouldn't do at all, I suppose . . .
but that heart was not to blame.

life insurance is to take as large a
policy as can be paid out of ten per
cent of the individual's fixed annual
income, and increase the insurance
as the income increases.
The hardest problem that com
munity committees on unemploy

It Is comparatively easy to make
work for the manual laborer. New
York is doing this by all sorts of
street, park and waterfront im

work in collecting information
which various public and semi-pub
lic institutions need but in ordinary
times have felt that they could not
afford to collect. One New York
business house suggested a house-to-house
canvass of the city to find
out how many domestic electrical
appliances of all kinds were in use,

How to train BABY'S
Babies, bottle-fed or breast-fed,
with any tendency to be constipated,
would thrive if they received daily
half a teaspoonful of this old family
doctor's prescription for the bowels.
That is one sure way to train tiny
bowels to healthy regularity. To
avoid the fretfulness, vomiting,
crying, failure to gain, and other ills
of constipated babies.
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is
good for any baby, rot this, you have
the word of a famous doctor. Forty
seven years of practice taught him
just what babies need to keep their
little bowels active, regular; keep
little bodies plump and healthy. For
Dr. Caldwell specialized in the treat
ment of women and little ones. He
attended over 3500 births without
Ion of one mother or baby.

erals, contains vitamins, is a mild
laxative, supplements the milk diet
of infants, and is a desirable fruit
for all children. It deserves a more
prominent place in the diet than it
now holds," Mrs. Williams says.
Evidence that the prune can be
served in many other forms than
stewed is found in a bulletin called
"The Value and use of Prunes,"
edited by Mrs. Williams, in which
she otters 13 recipes for using this
fruit, as well as a list of menus and
other suggestions for combining
prunes with other foods in salads,
desserts and other dishes.
The recipes Include, among oth
ers, whole wheat prune muffins,
prune brown betty, spiced prune
bread pudding, prune cobbler, prune
cake and prune filling for cake.
