"The Whistlers" is a fun Romanian neo-noir borrowing suspense tropes from James Cain, Robert Siodmak and Jules Dassin. The premise is a cop (no unreliable voice overs here) who had to learn the idiom of the whistling language for communicating with people living in interstitial spaces inside and outside of the law. Offbeat, at times hilarious in a deadpan way and rife with truly beautiful mise en scène, the film is a deconstructed tribute to this specific and particular film genre but operates outside of it. All the characters are vividly drawn, the supporting ones carry out the one-dimensionality of their roles with a certain lived-in freshness. The use of music was also very tasteful and deliberately operatic as counterpoint to the life-and-death situations, quirkily told. Corneliu Porumboiu seems to be having fun directing this story. it shows and I for one was swept by the story and storytelling.

I am going to go straight and tell you: I am sorry, but do not go to this movie. br> It is the biggest waste of money I've ever made and besides seing Catrinel Marlon naked there is nothing to see. The main character has no emotions and all the movie seems like it was written with the left hand (obviosly the writer is right handed.
The movie also has gross scenes and the whistling sound is extremely annoying.
I rate 2/10 just because of the beauty of Catrinel.

World War Z, Zombie Virus verbreitet sich in alle Welt! Kein Witz! Coronavirus verdoppelt sich alle 6 Tage, 14 İnkubationszeit, d.h. die schrecklichen Smpthome bleiben 7-14 Tage versteckt unendeckt und können trotzdem Tausende andere anstecken usw. usw. usw... Sowas gab es noch nie, das ist ja das schreckliche, bei Sars lag die Verbreitung extrem darunter, denn das Erkennen infizierter war deutlich effizienter und unter Quarantäne zu stellen. Die Krankheit verbreitet exorbitant schnell aus. Was soll also die ganze Scheiss Verharmlosung durch die Medien und den möchtegern Ärzten. Sorry! Die Ärzte in Deutschland sind nicht wesentlich besser ausgebildet als eine amerikanische Krankenschwester, was allgemein bekannt ist, die medizinische Ausbildung dort ist viel besser, auch wenn wir deutsch, fortgeschritten und patriotisch sind müssen wir realistisch sein das das amerikanische Niveau deutlich höher ist. Dir reden ehrlicher! Woher also die Arroganz deutscher Ärzte? Ich verstehe die Lüge in Deutschland nicht, anstatt die Leute aufzuklären wie sie gut erkennen ob sie infiziert sind und am besten reagieren um nicht noch weitere anzustecken, gibt es dergleichen null Aufklärung! Deutschland/Europa muss sich komplett abschotten, sonst wird uns noch alle der Teufel holen. Das wird schneller gehen als wir denken. Wie willst du 1-2-3-4-5 Millionen infizierte in welchen Krankenhäusern behandeln? Es gibt kein Mittel gegen den Coronavirus. Vergesst das nicht.

But. soon after dusk. Klrby had reason to know that his words hsd not all fallen on bar- ren *oil At close of the working day. Najlb had brought the manager the usual diurnal report from the mine. Now after supper Klrby. glancing over the report again, found a gap or two in the details.

In ISajib s Quarters * * '"THEREFORE, the list in his hand, the American strolled down from his own knoll-top tent toward NaJIb's quarters. As Najlb waa superintendent, and thus technically an official, Klrby could make such domiciliary visits without loss of prestige. Just outside the radius of the fellaheen's n relight. Klrby paused For he heard Ns jib's shrill voice uplifted In speech. And amused- ly he halted and prepared to turn back. He had no wish to break in upon a harangue so aa the speaker seemed to find this NaJIb's voice was pitched far above tha tones of normal Eastern conversation— louder and more excited than that of a professional story- teller.

Along the nesrer peaks snd hollows of the Moab Mountains the knots of prowling Jackals kept up a running chorus of yapping— a discordant chant punctuated now and then by the far-away howl of a hunting wolf; or by the choking "lsugh" of a hyena In the valley below, who thus gave forth the news of some especially delicious bit of carrion discovered among the rocks. And Klrby was reminded of NaJIb's quoted dictum that "laughter U for women and for hyenas The Syrian hsd been his comrade in many a vicissitude And he knew that NaJIb's fond- ness for him was aa sincere as can be that of sny Oriental for a foreigner, an affection based not wholly on self-interest Klrby en- Joyed his evening powwows with the super- intendent beside the campftre and the little man's amaslng faculty for mangling the Eng- lish tongue.

Wen Kirby's declaration the* the ridiculous strike would be a failure, and that the Gov- ernment would assuredly punish any to the Cabell property, did not serve to him Najlb was a Syrian. An idea one* ly rooted In his mind, waa loath to let Itself be torn thence by mere words. Klrby waxed des- perate "You have wrecked this whole thing!

So how are you going to get word to him that you people are on strike and that you won t do another llek of work till you get double pay and half time? How are you going to do that? " NaJIb's solid face went blank Here at last was sn argument that struck home. He had known Klrby for years, long enough to know that the American was most emphatically a man, of his word. If Klrby swore he would not act as the men's intermediary with the company, then decisively Klrby would keep his oath. And Najlb realized the futility of get- nng anyone else to write such a letter in any language which the Cabell Smelting Com- pany's home office would decipher He peered up at Klrby with disconsolate as- tonishment. Quick to take advantage of the change, the manages hurried on "Now. the men are on strike. That's under- stood Well, what are you going to do about It? When the draft for the monthly pay roll comes to the bank at Jerusalem. I shall refuse to Indorse It I give you my oath on that. too.

In one hour his golden ambitions for the mine and for himself had been smashed. At bast he saw no hope of getting the obeeaaed nunc crew to work soon enough to save hut present contracts He would be lucky If. on non- receipt of their demanded increase, they did not follow NaJIb's muddled preachments to the point of sabotage. The more he thought of It. the less possible did it seem to Kirby that Najib could undo the damage he had so blithely done. Ordering the blubbering little fellow out of the tent and re- fusing to spesk or listen further, Klrby went to bed Oddly enough, he slept. Only onoe In the night waa he roused. Perhaps two hours before dawn he started up at sound of a humble scratching at the open door flap of his tent On the threshold cowered Najlb. howadji, " came the Syrian s voice through the gloom, "could 1 borrow me a book If I should use It with much carefulness? ' Too drowsy to heed the absurdity of such a plea at such an hour. Klrby grumbled a surly assent, and dosed again as he heard Najlb rumbling In the dark among the shelves of the packing-box bookcase In a far corner of the tent. Here were stored nearly a hundred old volumes which had once been a part of (he missionary library belonging to Kirby's father at Nablous. Klrby woke at greyest daylight. Through force of habit he woke at this hour, in spite of the workleas d*y which he knew confronted him. It was hi* custom to get up and take his bath in the rain cistern at this time, snd to finish dressing Jusf as the men piled out for the morning's work. Yet now the first sound* that smote his ears as he opened his eyes were the rhythmic creak of the mine windlass and the equally rhyth- mic, if leas tuneful, chant of the men who were working it "Allah sa-edd! Ne-bl sa-eedl One! H ggg Sa-eed! Ba-eed! " In the distance', dying away, he heard the plodding hoofs of a string of pack mule* From the direction of the mine came the hoodlum racket which betokens, in Syria, the effort* of a number of honest laborers to perform their dally tasks In an efficient and orderly way. In Full Swing l^IRBY, in sleep amaae, looked at his watch In the dim dawn light. He saw It was still a full half hour before the men were due to begin work And by the sounds he Judged that the day s labor was evidently well under way. Yea. and today there was to have been no work done Klrby Jumped out of bed and strode daaedly to his tent door. Ot the mine below him his fellaheen were as busy as so msny dirty and gaudy bees. Even the lordly iaxy Turklah soldier* were lending a hand at windlass and crane. Over the tujck of the pass leading to- ward Jerusalem, the last animal of a mule train waa vanishing Najlb who had as usual escorted the departing shipment of ore to the opening in the pass, was trotting back toward camp.

C SUNDAY, {SEPTEMBER! _5, 1929 Will Meteor Shower Lay Earth Waste? T 3 the earth doomed' Answering that 1 question in a lecture which Sir Oliver Lodge recent. 1> delivered before the staff of professors and the student body of the University of Paris the noted British scientist said that he did not exclude the possibility of the world being destroyed by colliding with some celesUs! body Such collisions, he -»id are continually happening in: space • What may happen to meteors on a small scale.

They are Immediately reduced to dust through the terrific friction " Timely Interest thst is full of thrills Is added to Sir Oliver Dodge's state- ment by the fsct that astronomers re- port that the world Is on the eve of a meteor season. Dr. Charles P Olivier, professor of astronomy at the University of Penn- sylvania and president of the American Meteor Society, has issued sn invita- tion to the public to report all fireballs snd large meteors Hourly counts of aU meteors, large or small, also are desired "Any meteor larger than a star of first magnitude la worth reporting " Dr Olivier says in the Invitation to the public. -What is desired most of all is the meteor's apparent path across the sky The stars snd constellations serve as reedy reference points, and* the ob- server ahould fix the meteor's course among them with all the precision at his command The hour, minute and if possible the second of the meteor s appearance should be reported.

If any. should be described and timed. ' How the worlds largest ntles could be wiped out in a few seconds by the bombardment of mighty meteors Is described In Science and Invention by Professor William J Luyten. of Har- vard University Observstory. In his vivid account of the fall of a huge heavenly mass cf metal on "Hoba We*. ** a farm owned by J H. Oosthul- een, near Orootfonteln. Bouthwest Africa. "As It lies there, unassuming. In Its silent tomb of limestone, '' says Pro- lessor Luyten. 'there is nothing dra- matic In Its appearance: a solitary block of metal, great and massive. lying in the desolate wilderness of the •veld. " But If we only try to visualise the conditions under which it arrived we find it gave a spectacle surpassed by few In dramatic appeal. "A black mass of metal, cruising through empty space Invisible to all. Suddenly it enters the atmosphere of the earth; Its great speed and the re- sultant friction heat It to Incandescence in some seconds or less. Transformed into a gigantic fireball, white hot. it darts across the sky with lightning rapidity, and approaches the ground with an angry hiss. A terrific roar as it strikes the ground, a shower of sparks, sand, rock and metal, a cloud of dust, and soon all Is quiet again. With its nose burled deep in the soft rocks, the meteor will soon be covered up entirely by the surrounding lime- stone, snd its tomb will be sealed against the curious eyes of posterity. After centuries of erosion have re- moved most of the protecting top lay- er*, perchance some prospector may notice a small. Wack. metallic- looking rock, and begin to dig it out. " Owing to the Impossibility of finding out how much of the meteor Is buried In the limestone It Is difficult to make a good guess about Its weight Prom the outside measurements It Is esti- mated, however, that it must weigh at least fifty tons Fifty tons, one hun- dred thousand pounds of solid Iron, truly a rock of ages! Professor Luyten says that this meteor Is tougher then sny but the very best steel, locomotive wheels. One can Just file It and saw It with great difficulty "That this meteorite Is no easy cus- tomer when It. comes to sawing need not surprise us. once we have made the chemical- analysis. " Professor Luyten explains The beat result* thus far obtained Indicate a nickel proportion of po less than 17. 5 per cent. Iron taking up 81. 5 per cent, leaving Just one per cent for other metals, carbon, and other extraneous substances. In short, therefore, this meteor Is nothing less than nickel-steel, with as fine a structure as our best man-made steel, and without any flaws whatsoever. " When did this meteor fall? Where did it come from? To the first ques- tion Professor Luyten says that the geologist only can provide an answer, for. by studying closely the weathering and the decay of the rocks around it he may be able to tell more or leas when the strange visitor fell from the T*r, "The second question, " continues Professor Luyten. "Will never be an- swered in full and we ehall have to be satisfied with emulating Caesar, and write on lU tomb: It came, it fell and it stayed. " "Whence it came? From the Oreat Wide Open 8paces. In all probability it originally belonged to the solar sys- tem, and was born out of the sun at the same time as all the other planets.

The Department of Agricultural Chemistry of the University of Wisconsin ha* recently investigated the effect of copper in the treat- ment of anaemia These experiment* accord- ing to a bulletin of the Copper and Brass Re- search Association, indicate that copper uaed in the cure of anaemia plays an active part in restoring the blood to its normal and health- ful coDdltlon In association with Iron, cop- per builds up the red blood -corpuscles that carry life-giving oxygen through the body from the lungs.

At an early stage of life these reserves become ex- hausted and the system thereafter must de- pend for Its supply upon the food that Is eaten The experiments were made with rat* The rat was first made anaemic by restricted diet This produces anaemia by falling to provide* those elements which nourish the ogygen-car- rier. hemoglobin, in the blood. When the hemoglobin content of the rat s blood had been materially reduced, copper was added to the diet of the animal In association with Iron. In alx week* the hemoglobin content of the animal's blood increased about fivefold. "Without the copper addition. " says the Wisconsin report, "the rise In the hemoglobin would not have occurred. " Anaemic animals which received only the hundredth part or a milligram of copper In these experiments showed marked Improve- ment, with a final return to normal The re- covery of animals thst were permitted to con- sume large quantities, or copper was very rapid "An improvement in physical well-being as evidenced bjr greatly Increased appetite, smoother coats, and Increased vigor and activity was a pronounced accompanying phe- nomenon. " the report continues. Experiments were conducted at the Ken- tucky Agricultural Station to determine whether the copper contained in red blood has sny useful function, as Its presence sug- gests The experimenters reduced calves' livers to ash from which the copper was pre- cipitated, filtered out and washed. White rats were put on a milk diet for four weeks, after which a measured amount of liver ash was added to the animals rations. In some instance* the aah contained copper and in others the copper had been removed. In reporting the results of these experiments the Kentucky Investigators declared that "ra^s that received copper m their diet possessed to a noticeable degree a pink ruddiness wh-re the skin H exposed, for example, on the tall, feet and nose, which was absent ttaffi those from which copper was withheld From the external appearance of the rats, together with the hemoglobin reading?, the authors Infer that copper has an important function in the formation of hemoglobin and in the meta- bolism of animals having red blood " Copper, in the quantities found In food and drinking water, will not Injure any human organ.

"Analysis or the animal organs showed that practically all ot the copper taken into the system Is eliminated by natural processes.

" The Investigators at Columbia University Medical School recognised in planning their research that rabbits in controlled experiments often showed the same result*, whether or not they had been exposed to the effects of copper.

Ml a ay back 68 '905 that a sixteen year -old Canadian boy "earned the chain" on a certain survey in North Ontario He MM a nice youngster to have on the party but not any too "husky" for the job. Whan ha Joined the party he looked half-starved There was an excellent reaaon (or hts looking Just that way. he was half-starved and had been that way for close on • year The boy of whom I speak Joined that survey party because the chance to earn some money looked rather good to him He didn't look forward to finding anything beyond hard work and the wherewithal to buy food. As he tells It today he felt that life had "licked" him. The dream of an artistic boy s soul had taken on the most destructive qualities of a horrible nightmare. For a year past his mind had been filled with what seemed a hopeless struggle — that of competing, untrained and poor, with a world full of art students (with opportunities for study st home snd abroad*; and. later, should he be victorious In the fight to achieve some training, competing with the most famous and highly trained artists of the world st large It Is impossible, of course, to say how largely the fact that the poor youngster was everlastingly hungry had to do with the fact that ha admitted himself defeated before •he fight was well begun. However, the boy found something beyond hard work and his pay in that Summer at home in Canada. Perhaps It was the plenti- ful food and the fresh air which so speedily gave htm back the lost boy vitality His de- feated young artist soul, however, needed something more then that— and found It. so he says There was something In the Canadian forests snd streams and sparkling lskes and the glorious sunshine which reawakened the artistic hunger to create The boy was soon spending every spare minute in making sketches of his boss and the camp cook, end the other chaps and of hunters and trappers In their canoes or tramping the trail, and of Indians and their squaws, and of old mother nature, the nearest and dearest of ■Ul He knew that his sketches were poor things— amateur lah and crude— not a bit like the beautiful things which his eyes and his heart saw In the forests, but he had a feeling that. If he Just kept or trying, his fingers would some day find the trick of doing those pictures justice. W Success in Exile HEN this point of view had presented Itself to him quite clearly the boy < as he tells it today), awoke one morning to the realization that he was not licked after all and that he wasn't going to be licked when the referee gave the final decision He knew this because he had gTown willing to face the fight again and to take ail the "punlshment"- hloas and the scars which fate had waiting for Mm regardless of ho* much thev hurt As i aay that was m liH)b In the State of Connecticut near the town of Westport there la a very beautiful old!

It wss only a month or so ago that, in this studio, the famous maker of exquisite etchings, rummaged through an old box of books and sketches which he had had sent on from Can- ada to his home in Connecticut lie chuckled as he came across the sketches which he had made as a boy on that surveying trip twenty - three years ago He smiled a bit om their crudity, but he was carried back to the mood of high courage which had come to him that Summer of long ago and the realization burst upon him that be had gained something at home in Canada that time without which fame and prosperity would never have been his. Now -many Canadian artists and writers and others, in past days when Canada was leas prosperous than now. have of necessity left their homeland to find opportunity "across the line" The successful ones are generally hailed as "Americans" and they let it go at that, for the reason that they feel they owe a treat debt of gratitude to the land which gave them opportunity denied them at home But — opportunity isn't everything for one who has won the grim fight and has achieved fame, many have gone down to de- feat as nonentities In the public esteem This man tells me that he might have— probably would have been one of the letter If he had not gone home exhausted with the struggle, with faith gone, licked, and there found re- newed bodily vigor, renewed faith, renewed courage Yes. Harold Kerr Eby is Canadian ail right, slthough he was born and spent his babyhood In Jspan. He was bom in ISM when his father. Dr. 8 Eby. Methodist - missionary from Canada, was stationed at Toklo. As Is Ihe fate of Methodist parsons. Dr Eby and his family did not stay long in any one place, even after their return to Canada, when young Harold Kerr Eby was two years old. The youngster's boyhood was spent in Vancouver. Kingston. Toronto and Brarebrldge It was In Vancouver, when he was six years old. that the child established contact with an "artist. " This Indlvidusl was an old one-legged sailor who lived In a little shack down by the sea and made a humble Jiving by painting ships on clam shells for the decoration of the purchee- Eby aged six. wor- ahlped humbly at the foot of the creative artist! The sailor was a taciturn old chap, he took no particular interest in the little boy who be- came his abject slave, carried his water from a nearby spring, gathered driftwood along the shore for hla fires— and stood at his shoulder and breathed deeply in his ear as the old cur- mudgeon painted taut riggings and billowing ssUs and angry seas The funny little boy was many a time heaved bodily out of the door on to the sandy beach, but back he would come with various offerings to conciliate his Idol— one of them being one of his father's best pair of boots "He was only six. remember, snd had not yet learned the sacredness of private boots and other property. ; Kerr Eby's father and mother, while strongly disapproving of the boot episode: and expres- sing their disapproval In a way to make the episode well remembered, were, nevertheless much interested in the child's attempts to emulate the art of his hero. They gave him a box of paints and It was with their blessing that he set out to create pictures. Eby A Printer'* ''/save'iT* y7HEN Kerr Eby was a boy or twelve the family was in Toronto, and it was then that he became possessed of a very large sum of money One dollar and fifty cents! It was a Christmas present. The investment of this fortune was interesting. A neighboring little girl, not much older than he. was more for- tunate than he In that she was already at- tending art school Finally, backed by one fifty, he entered upon his first academic training as an artist under her tuition to the tune of twenty-five cents a lesson. This enterprising little girl had a class In drawing which consisted of half k dozen other children 'It Is a curious fact that she. Helen Williams, now a distinguished and highly pros- perous interior decorator in New York, has her country home In Connecticut Just half a mile from Kerr Eby's place. ) It was shortly after this that Dr. Eby was moved by the Methodist powers-to-be to Brarebrldge, Ont Dr. and Mrs. Eby took very seriously the talents of their young hope- ful snd It a keen regret to them that a minister s salary didn t run lo sending the boy away to art school However. Kerr was an independent and self-reliant youngster He left school and pips' u> work as a "printers devil" on a Bracebrldge paper Today he has forgotten the name of the paper but remem- bers a Mi Bastedo as his much admired boas. By the simple process of doing without all the things which boys like to have, and so saving his wages. Kerr Eby. by the time he was fifteen, had put by enough money to take him to New York. His idea was that he should study, and. by the way. make his living Pilled with courage and a sense of high aflventure. he arrived on a night of pouring rain In the great strange city He walked Pmi i-nnners A 8 Kerr Eby became one of the finest and moat successful Illustrators In New York, yet another ambition came to him He had always been Interested in line, rather than in color He wanted to be an etcher When this idea first appealed to him he couldn't afford fo study with the great masters, so he studied their books on etching instead, and he experimented for years with an etching press and the copper plates Through year-, of study, of experiment, of oft-discouraging experience, Kerr Eby. felt his way to a tech- nique which has. as we all know, made him one of the most famous makers of etchings in the world today.

" Bursting shells, and aeroplanes, and always the gunners and the guns! After the Armistice, the artist could hardly wait to get back to hut studio and his sketches and hts etching press Somehow, the thing which he had been striving for. for so long, seemed to be waiting for him there, for the etchings made from the war sketches had that quality for which he had been groping for yeare. He gave an exhibition hi New York at the famous Frederick Keppel galleries (and it a triumph Indeed to have those galleries accept work for an exhibition > and. practically ovemlght, the distinguished Illustrator became the famous maker of etchings!

Formerly the food was not quite enough to satisfy hunger, and prisoners had to buy extra food In the canteen Now the doctors have calculated exactly the number of calories for sufficient nourishment, and the canteen supplies extras only, such ss butter, margarine, sugar, cheese, bacon, herring, fruit, tea. chocolate and tobacco, for In most prisons now men may smoke on certain days, sometimes every day. They pay for these extra rations out of the pay for their work, for everyone must work. The Work in Prison '"THE prisons are equipped tor special kinds of work All competition with private industry is avoided, as all the work Is ex- clusively for Government service Those who know no kind of handwork are taught tailoring or sewing. Well-educated persons become clerks, or work In the libraries All prisoners are allowed books Chaplains and religious instructors of every creed visit the prisoners regularly. The pay varies from ten to thirty -five i Dutch) cents a day (one US cent Is equal to two and one-half Dutch cental. Half is put aside for the prisoner on hla release, the other half he uses as he likes, at the canteen, for postage, or his relations. Many prisoners look upon Sundays as the worst day of the week, for no work may be done then The prisoners attend service, write letters, read, or do nothing Of late yean a certain liberty has been admitted In the s optica tton of some privileges and the degree with which this Is spoiled gj counts for the noticeable differences in the regime of various prisons In some the dis- cipline is benevolent, even friendly, and In others It Is based strictly on rules and regula- tions. Individual attitude of the officials counts for much Among the privileges one may mention per- mission to prisoners to mitigate the severity of their cells by the presence of one or two plants, whose growth depends greatly on the amount of sun light reaching the cell Here snd there one may find some poor bird suffer- ing a double confinement, but providing com- fort and cheer- at the same time A email aquarium li another favorite possession As a privilege prisoners are allowed to fix ptoture postcards they receive to their and prints or drawings of their own Ms la generally only to be in a dark courtyard where each one steps to and fro in his own sector unseen by the others Scarcely ever are there trees or plants in thaae yards prisoners to Join a choir, and they give per- formances In the chapel now and then, but each singer sits in his own eell-llke seat, see- ing the choirmaster pnly. In the chapel oc- casional entertainments are given, such as lectures snd magic-lantern shows Of greater Influence on the eharacter and future of the prisoners, however, are rescue work and after-care. The men and women who devote themselves to this visit the prison- ers in their cells There are conditional sentences whereby misdemeanants are at liberty on probation, and are under supervision of rescue work officials for three years, dependent on their own efforts to lead an honest life. The con- ditional release of well-behaved prisoners after they have served three-quarters of their time Is also permitted There are several societies and institutions devoted lo rescue work Criminality in the. Nether lands, as reflected In the figures regarding convictions, has been greatly decreasing of Iste. In 1907 the number in prisons snd similar plsres was 57. There were 16, 900 in 1826. with the result that many cells are empty and some prisons have been closed The percentage of recidivists In proportion to the total number of convicted prisoners Is not so satisfactory In 1926 It was 419 per cent In 1906 and 1906 It was 44 per cent: In 1901. 396 per cent The lowest figure was in 1618. 28. 7 per cent, and since then the highest was 42 A per cent. In 1822 It would seem, therefore, that the, cellular system does not exercise a greatly deterrent effect.

For the first time, he says, it shows the links which connect the Russian Revolu- tion with the past, and he rlghUy describes as particularly valuable Mr Vernadekys at- tempt to give due weight to the Oriental af- finities of the Russian people Por centuries, during her early history. Russia formed part of powerful Asiatic empires, Mongolian and Iranian; she still occupies territorially a large part of Asia; and, though she haa succeeded in partly absorbing or partly Europeanixing many Asiatic tribes, the reciprocal Influence of these tribes on her own peculiar develop- ment is a factor not to be neglected. Autocracy, for Instance, according to Mr Vemadsky. was a legacy or the Tatar domina- tion; it was no part of the system established by the Veranglan princes of the house of Rurik. whicft was of the early Teutonic type. The policy of the Tsars of Muscovy was inspired partly by Mongolian, partly by Byaantlne tra- ditions, and reached Its supreme embodiment in Irsn the Terrible, who. In 1564. destroyed the nobles by a series of wholesale executions and confiscations, and created a new official class, the oprichnlks. bound to the throne by ties of self-interest This was a precedent followed, consciously or unconsciously, by the Bolshevista when they extermlnsted Ihe bour- geois snd based their power on the Communist Party, which Includes only one per cent of the adult population The time of troubles which followed the death of Tsar Pedor. with- out hews, provided another analogy, Mr Vemadsky compares the formidable rising of the peasants and slaves, to exterminate the rich, with the movement of 1817.

An article In Our Dumb Animals shows that the gardener can have no better friend Here are a few para- graphs that will help you to recognize gnd value this little neighbor: The bird Is small, somewhat the color of a mouse and as she nits about In the bushes snd hedges, reminds one somewhat of the mouse She Is seldom seen in the open coun- try, for no long flights are taken, but confines herself to the bushes. If one Is quiet he may observe this little bird sn she moves about and may be able to come very close without Inter- fering with her home life The wren is a great singer and produces some very loud songs for a creature so small In food habits the wren Is entirely benefi- cial, for the food la almost entirely animal. Of a great number of stomachs examined QH per cent of the contents waa made up of in- sects or their allies and only a pei rent was vegetable food This Included bits of grass which had evidently been taken while cap- turing Insects The stomach contents con- tained grasshoppers, beetles, caterpillars, bugs, and spiders. The bird Is a great hunter and searches diligently about bams, decsylng trees, posts, vines, and spaces In walls lor Insects. The neat is made up of sticks, grass, string, moss, and almost any material available.

It his been thought by many, that these were prac- tice nests built by the young of the previous year: others say It is a peculiarity of the bird that it tries several nests before msklng s final decision.

W Care of Poultry on the Farm By R C GIBSON YOU have been very patient *ith the writer of these note* for the past two or three months, and he thanks you for your kind, consideration, attention and good wiahe.. dm mm his tunes*. So to resume our series of article* dealing with culling, housing and feeding, tlao the general bringing "up 1 of your new pullets — you must now have an ideal house filled with Ideal buds, only waiting ideal management to turn them into real prufUmakers thioughout the Winter Let us round off our little series by giving you the details of how you can achieve thla admirable end Taking things in their order of Im- portance, we cannot do better than by « -tart with feeding M //„ Hethod* of Feeding | ANY an- the methods of feeding, but- Ltam arc only two that stand ahead of all others, namely, tne dry mash and the wet mash methods. There is nothing to choose between them as regards e«g production, but each method cults different poultry keepers. The dry mash way saves the labor of heattog the water, mixing and dishing out the mash and the cost of cleaning of troughs. On the other hand. It is not so palatable to the birds as the wev mash, and there is also the cost of hoppers to be considered. Having decided on which method you are going to adopt, the next thing is to draw up a menu, i. e., an order for feeding The day is divided Mito three feeding periods— morning, noon and evening- but the neon one may be cut out if you find that you cannot possibly visit your birds at that Then there are the proper quantities of each food to give at each feeding period^ Dry Mash Feeding— Early morning Three- quarters of an ounce of grain mixture per bird, absolutely buried in loose, light, dry, clean scratching Noon: Oreenlood uf not on grass run-, plus a tMiy feed of grain. again buried, say. one handful. Evening: A* much | nun as the buds can jwsMbly eat, given on lop of the litter or to troughs, preferably the latler. Notes— There must never be any grain left uneaten by the birds in the morning. There must always be fresh, sweet-smelling, dry mash in hoppers placed in that position to the house Which is easiest for the birds to get at. and plenty of clean water and oyster or clam shell grit, likewise placed in accessible hoppers. Wet Mash Feeding— Early morning: One and three-quarter ounces of grain mixture buried In Utter as above Noon Oreenfood and half an ounce per bird buried grain. Three-quarters of an hour before sunset: A huge crop-nillng feed of warm, crumbly wet mash, as much as they can possibly eat Clean water and shell grit always available The idea In both cases Is to make the birds eat as much mash a* possible Cram them full of ouuh Id produce eggs and keep them healthy by scratching to the Utter for grain. If they do not eal much wet mash in the evening, or If they do not seem keen on the dry mash, cut down the grain until they do. By the way— pardon me— these menus are • specially de- signed for the feeding or Just-ln-lay pullets, and are sllghtlv different from those Intended for old hens, etc Now we come to the actual composition of the feeds themselves. Below we give the best possible mash and grain mix- tures, containing Ingredient* easy to obtain and. withal, reasonable in price. Dry Mash Composition— Three parts, by weight, of middlings, two of yellow malse meal: one each of ground oats, clover tor Lu- cerne meal, broad bran and meat-and-bone meal. Each meal must be purchased separate- ly and all mixed together very thoroughly, for intimate mixing is essential. Wet Mash Composition— Five parts, by weight, of middlings, two and a half or yellow maize meal, two or ground oats, one and a hair of meat-and-bone meal, one or broad bran end hajf or clover. the <>rain Mixture TOT grain mixture I* two part* each of wheat and kibbled malie and one of heavy white oats. As a rough guide, one hand- ful of grain taken with tire hand palm down- wards Is equal to two ounce*, so that three- quarters ol an ounce per bird would be one and a hall handfula per rour birds. Do not throw the grain down Just on top or the Utter. It must be taked in with a long -toothed rake. It is a better Idea still to don a pair of rubber boots and. as the food la thrown in front of >ou. to kick the inter immediately over and on top of the gram Those of you who keep only six' to twelve birds in your back yard, or on your lot of (10 x 120. will find that it Is moat economical to use up the scraps from the table. U is almost impossible to give a mash formula to suit the mixing of house scraps, because they vary to composition such a lot The fol- lowing, however, may be taken as an at for a mash containing house scraps parts, bv weight, of house scraps, four of mid- dlings and one each of clover meal. malae meal and meat-and-bone meal If the scraps contain much meat, cut out the meat-and- bone meal; If much bread, the mala* meal, and if much vegetable, the clover meal. In regard to greenfood. a regular supply is Im- portant rrom the end or this month because at about that time. the gnu* begins to lose a great deal of Its nutritive value, and the weather has been so good in Western Canada thla year that. weU. it s Just not here, that * all Of course, there are other greenstuffs — cabbages, sprout leaves, spinach released and kale are all ex- cellent, and U these are not obtainable, you ran sprout oaU. or give swedes, and do not rail to omit the clover, or lucerne meal to tne mash When pullets first come Into lay. you will nonce a vastly increased appetite, which must be satisfied And finally, before we leave the question of feeding, let us aay that cleenli neas la absolutely pullets undoubtedly endure a severe strain and m their somewhat weakened condition, filthy, gerro-rldden apparatus may cause no end of Ulneaa. / he est Hit t es ■^EW pullets often give trouble m not laying iy to the nest boxes provided for them Maybe they are unable to get up easily Many nest boxes can be much improved by fitting up an alighting perch You know— about alx inches from the entrance to the nest Another rather common nuisance at this tune is the pullet which make* a cosy nest In the corner of the house and lays there before the owner Is up to the morning. Yes. and nearly always to the corners, mind you. rarely out to the open litter, and therefore It la a fine plan to kick or rake aU the Otter from the corners Into the centre of the house last thing at night Ample nest boxes are another essential to the stop- ping of this laying away, as weU as broken eggs, and bad-tempered fowls. There must be at least one nest box for every rour Wrds. and If you are going to trap-uieat. the aUowance should be one lor every three birds. Young pullet* are nervous when they first mme on to lay, and they must never be frightened by such things as Happing sacks, dogs or stran- gers. Neither must the reeding be changed abruptly. Any change that you deem neces- sary must be made gradually, Increasing pro- portion and lowering the amount of the latter pro ratio Keep a strict watch on litter to see that it Is always light and easily acratched It must be kept dry by maintaining a sound root and a dry rioor When bad weather come* along, put all shutters up. refit the glass to the wire netting "windows' and fit storm boards over any necessary places. If you find that despite all your precautions the house st Ul seems badly ventilated, cut out some more spaces near the droppings boards, but to such position that the bud* are not subjected to draughts by being in a direct line between two windows or ventilators. If the house draughty, big sheets of rubber-like roof- ing felt fixed over the suspected side will soon put at rest "aU trouble. ' If Eggs Must Be Washed IT Is a pity when new-latd eggs have to be * washed before they are marketed It shows carelessness on the part of the attendant to that he has not done everything to Insure the production of clean ones Washing an egg generally means that the bloom disappears. This bloom is the trademark of the new-laid eggs. 8tale ones and plckJed ones do not possess It. Destroy the bloom and the con- sumer doe* not quite know what he Is buying. But It the eggs must be v. ashed, there la a way or doing It which doe* not spoil the eggs" ap- pearance entUely The bloom Is pretty firmly attached, thererore. unless the eggs are rubbed. It la not removed to any extent Put the dirty eggs into luke-warm water and wipe with a piece of flannel Dip into the water again and dry by standing the eggs on blotting paper. Do not polish them with a cloth, tor It is chier- ly this which spoils the bloom. Spare Items FROM now on. wait till the dew la off the r grass before letting the layers out to the morning Handle the stubblers of an evening occasionally to make sure their crops are full. If they are not the buds will need more rood. Creosote the nest boxes against the Winters damp, but do not let the hen* use them till they are dry.

Straight off, this movie is totally different to what you may be used when thinking about Romanian movies. Starting with the story, the cast (Catrinel Marlon is magnificent) the scenery, smart humor and hidden little gems (references to various famous scenes in other movies) this film makes you think you're watching more of a Hollywood movie than a Romanian one, although, as a downside, I must say certain characters seem to be portrayed a bit simplistic.
The story is, to some extent, a typical police one, but the twist of using the whistling language from Gomera Island enriches the plot all around as it unfolds.
I really liked the movie and I would be happy if it sets the new trend in Romanian Cinema.
