The Squire's

The detectives, not undcrslanillng
the .Squire's confidence in Mrs. Bartlett, thought otherwise. Onlv to
himself did lie sav that wilhout the

side the strain would have been too
much for him, 11. remembered
with a queer sense of comfort that
she went armed. She hail shown
liim a revolver one day, little but
deadly, which she said she always
tarried about her. lie had objected
at thc time, and she hnd shown liim.
that she knew how to use lhe weapon. Now lie thought to himself of
ihe revolver will: something of comfort. He knew the woman was us
faithful to hiin as his dog. How he
knew he could not havc told.
He wns sure that his sweetheart
would never have kept liim in tliis
Intolerable suspense if she could help
it. She was alway.s so gentle with
liim, so loving, so pitiful of his lonely years. He was dreadfully restless
in those days, harassing Hilary beyond bearing. He ate next to [milling. His eyes looked as though tlicy
ached for sleep. Obviously a consuming flame of anxiety burned he-
hind' those eves, marring lhe man's
grave and noble comeliness,
No onc knew the Ihing that ailed
liim except Hilary, who guessed at
the aversion with which thc Si|iiirc
shrank from any gossip about his
sweetheart. Mr. Langton was noi
so absorbed in his grief lh.it he did
not notice how the Squire was in
dire trouble. But he asked no questions. There were no drums in lhe
pharmacopoeia for a mind diseased.
He watched the Squire with something of sympathy and apprehension;
said a word to Hilary that lie should
ntit leave Iiis cousin while he was in
trouble; for the rest went his own
His own way was often their way.
The three went for Ions tramps over
the country, making this or that historical spot the object ostensibly of
their walks. They talked very little.
Even Hilary, who had always been
full of laughter, seemed to have llis
preoccupations like the older men.
The doctor, keeping an observant
eye unohstrusively ou lhc Squire,
said one day to Hilary thai the man
must he tired ont physically, so that
lie should get some natural sleep at
Greatly to the grief of Monsieur
nnd Madame Dufour. Hilary had removed to the Splendidc, to bc with

in hopes of his return. In a few

stuffy than ihe bedrooms of the Chateau,
Mrs. Lloyd nnd her Kitty still
lingered like the last roses of summer.
It was fine open autumn weather
and the ladies were in the water every day. Mrs. Lloyd swimming oul
to the Fort or the Head as easily
as a fish, to the horror of the French
people who found such a love of water, especially now- the summer was
over, an occasion for much shrugging
of tin- shoulders and lifting up of
hands nnd eyebrows, while they muttered of the mad English.
It was 'iot often the lady, who
ve* an old habitue of the place, slaved on after all the summer visitors
had flown. There was Mr. Lloyd, a
patient person, whose professional
duties required Ids presenile in England. Mrs. Lloyd was usually sincerely glad to ro back to him in the
little Hampstead house when the
Himiiicr was over, with a feeling of
wrapping the domesticities about her
as a protection against the cold.
This year she had kept lhe poor
man cn garcon some weeks longer
than usual. Hc was a good, sensible man, so she did not confide to

with Audigiiac for iis theatre, It will
nol be the lirst lime of strange
events lii-rc. Apart from my interest in that delightful, distinguished-
looking Mr. Mcyrick, nnd Ins very
pleasant cousin, and Mr. Langton,
who Is an old friend, Ihere is the interest of the drama. I simply cunnol go hack to our quiet fireside
without knowing ihc denouement."
Kitty was quite resigned to wailing on her mother's whimsicalities,
Of course, she could not he expected to scc the possibilities Mrs. Lloyd
did in the. situation; hui her love for
her mother was tolerant, as became
the differences iu their ages, and slur
listened with an amused air. Kitty
had ralhcr a fancy for Mr. Strangways���not a silky sentimental, attachment; she would have, said that
she was not given that way���but a
warm friendship, arising from a
community of tastes about dogs and
horses and oilier less important matters from an appreciation of Hilary's good nature when he brought
her fairings from the town, from
sympathy, because she perceived lhal
he too had his anxieties.
Hilary came often to Mrs, Lloyd
and her daughter for the relaxation
he needed which was not afforded to
him by the abstraction of the olhcr
two men. He was on easy terms of
intimacy with the Iwo ladies by lhis
time. Mrs. Lloyd treated Iiini as she
might have treated a son of hei
own, Kilty's manner to him was that
of a pelted litlle sisler to au adored
grown-up brother, lie was always
being called iulo counsel aboul one
thing or another, lie was entrusted
with many messages and commissions from Mrs. Lloyd when his expeditions led liim lo a town, lie had
an endlcs patience .'ind conscientious
ness about fulfilling these commissions which used to make the other
men smile, despite their obsession
with  their own troubles.
'Lhc summer was quite over and
done wilh at lust. A high tide had
brought the waves washing over the
roadway in the towi, where Hilary
had been yesterday; rind the wet
bathing boxes, drawn high up for
safely, the rain driving upon theni,
gave n  sense  of dreariness    to    tlie
| place  that  had been  so gay and  full
I of life a few weeks before,
The  rain  had  come    in    nt     Mrs.
I Lloyd's windows, which, moreover,
were so shaken by the storms that
rest at night was impossible, Hilary,
who had a taste for carpentry, offered to plug the ill-litling windows
so thai they should not rattle.

On Every Acre
What is required of thc fanners is
more intensive fanning. Each acre
should produce more this year than
It has evcT produced before; each cow-
should produce more milk than ever
before. No farmer should kill a calt
until it is at leasl a mouth old, so
that it will hc valuable for food and
its skin valuable feir leather; moreover, mote heifer calves should be
raised so as to increase thc dairies
snd provide for an increase in milk.
The cattle have been killed in nearly
all countries at war to an alarming
extent, hence there will be a ureal
scarcity of milk products and beef
for some years.

High Status of Selected Men
Only Men of High Physical Type to
Be Called
It has been noted here with open
satisfaction that President Wilson of
the United States recently led a parade .of drafted men through the
streets of Washington and subsequently praised their spirit in a notable address. It is similar public and
official recognition of their high status as military men that will bc giv-
rii to the men selected for service in
Canada under thc military service-
(July men of a high physical
type will be called to the colors for
service overseas from the various
classes established hv the act, since
it is the intention to raise. 100,000
reinforcements who will add effective strength to the Canadians now- at
the front. Every official recognition
and care will be given these men in
accordance with their deserts as
patriots in the service of their country.

Cessation of the world war at lhis

Germany, Rev. Dr. Bruce Taylor,
principal of Queen's University, and
former chaplain of the 42nel Canadian
Highlanders, declared at the final
session at Philadelphia of the conference of college and university representatives and the university section of the committee of engineering anel education of lhe advisory
commission of the council of national defence
"Canada is now handing the torch
to thc United Slates," said Dr. Taylor, after describing his experiences
on the European balllcfronts. "Thc
present conflict is no ordinary war,
but a crusade, and the United States
must give all it has, for we arc almost spent."
The speaker deplored thc frightful
losses among college /men, who, he
said, "were scut from Canada merely
to slop a gap and die. obscured, with
their technical training of no avail."
"But lhcy served their purpose,"
he aelded, "for they slopped lhc first
German rush."

Wartime Courting Methods
Winning Hearts and Walloping   the I
Kaiser at the Same Time
The school girls in Wichita
renounced candy and ice crcau
the duration of the war and
warned their best fellows to
something besides candy when
come calling. We have heen accustomed to laugh at Mr. Barkis, who
wooed Miss Clara Peggotly by
stealthily leaving oranges, onions,
umbrellas and legs of mutton behind
the kitchen door as marks of his affection. But there will he no occasion to laugh at thc "willin"' young
men of Wichita if they choose a
similar method of winning hearts

time.���Kansas City Star-,

One of thc visible evidences of the
high cost of living is the division of
the pie. In the good old times it
was cut into four quarters, and no
customer was offered less than a
quarter circle. Now the pie is cut
into six, even eight parts, and the
hungry citizen gets a mere weelgc
instead of a full quarter. The thought
occurs to the anxious boy: "Will the

Every true-hearted Britisii subject must feel piotul tn In- a Canadian citizen linhtv. I'he result of
Monday's pulling shows thai Can-'
tula js true to herself and tn her
soldiers. The people have shown
their faith ill tlie new Union Gov-

people have absolutely refused to

Laurier will accept the verdict with
his usual grace, and we trust that
he and his compatriots will see
plainly tbat it is their duty to do
their full share in furnishing men
to win the war The results must
show the whole world tint we are
a united people anel are not asleep,
The new government has a hard
task before it, Almost every candidate has declared himself against

arc working making a railroad, and (
I will have  a   small   pay   coming

can buv several little things  that I
need.    We get quite a lot   of  rain |
here as the town that   we   aie  bil-

we have had since we  left  Solton,
I saw some lovely "scenery coming along the railroad here, I saw
three big deer and four fawns, they
seem much the same as lbe���deer at
home, The farmers keep goats
around here ar.d Ihey seem to be
quite plentiful.
I suppose you are gelling up the
root crop and also baling hay. in
spare time,
We had a fine work day today,
but it i.s clouding up again for rain.
I am patiently waiting for a !letter from home, It seems a long
time since I heard from you. Mai-
da said iu her last letter that Fechner had lost hi. hotel license, so Jbe
sure and let me know who i.s the
proprietor of   the  Riverside  now.
I hav. not had any parcels from

Suggestion of Senator Foster Widely

Jlr" suggestion made in llie senile by Senator George G. Foster
(hat the experimental farms tliroiigli-
oui the. Dominion be used as training slation s for returned soldiers
wlio would engage in agricultural
work, or who have been fanners before their enlistment and want to return to the work, is not an entirely
new idea, for the military hospitals
commission has already placed some
men for training at the farm at Truro.
This additional service which experimental farms may be able to render in supplying, a training school

Ha_i_ of Canada's Prosperity are Her
Farm Lands
The Saskathccwan Farmer says:
Buying land al from $10 lo $20 an
acre, and doing nothing with it, cx-
pcctitif: to make a profit from unearned increment is jusi as foolish
as buying sub-division property lhat
may not be required for building purposes for a quarter of a century,
There are thousands of farm homes
ii. Western Canada lhat havc been
improved for the last 20 to. 30 years
and now owners would nol sell for
$50 or $b0 an acre, For 1915 thc
crop on many of these farms gave a
profit of from $20 to $-10 an acre, and
vi t there are millions of acres in
Western Canada, virgin prairie, that
can hc purchased al from $15 to $30
an acre. What is the explanation?
Simply this, that for a number pi
years the great part of our advertising has been to induce settlers to
ronie lo our cities and towns lo establish industries, iiie basis of all
our prosperity���our farm lands���was
Ignored. Today our farm lands arc
once more taking their proper place.
"Produce more," whether ii lie more
grain, more live slock, more butter,
more poultry and eggs can only apply to farm lands.

From January lo llie present date
the Hriiish navy has destroyed twice

be approximately 75 undcr-water vessels. Assuming this to be correct,

no fewer than 150 U-boats or at llic

Gallant Sons of Canada Can Be Found in Livery Branch oi
imperial Service, Doing Their Bit in Various Capacities, biu
Lending Great Assistance in Winning tlie K_ht
The giant of thc north stretches
his thirty-seven hundred miles from
Atlantic to l'acific and groans under
his own weight of wealth, actual and
potential. Hc is getting self conscious and is lifting bis bead for recognition as among the great of thc
earth, Canada deserves unstinted
praise for its part in thc present war,
and despite the large, number _ of
cririplcs on thc streets of lhc cities,
*ouragc and purpose are at a high
pitch. The Canadians arc game. And
their loyalty to the home -government is among the marvels of the
lime. Any suggestion of faltering in
that loyalty appears to be unknown
in the Dominion of Canada. The primary reason for this is not the undoubted excellence of the government of Great Britain but in the fact
that tlie Canadian people are left to
manage their own affairs. "We are
the freest people on earth," is an expression one frequently bears from
the lips of men who know what the
ether governments arc. As to thc
provinces, they remind one of thc
states of this country, but they appear to have their local affairs almost exclusively in their own bands.
The theory of self-government is
perhaps as well carried out in Canada as in any part of the world. But
in respect to the whole Dominion
there is an amount of intelligent
study of resources and opportunities
that perhaps docs not exist anywhere
else. Corporations, individuals, government officials, arc constantly exploring, mapping, and inviting mankind to come and scc. Many are
coming to stay, as onc knows from
the migration out of thc United
The great potencies are the quality
of thc English race, particularly as
expressed in Brilish rule, an enterprising government of the Dominion
itself and the railroad companies,
notably the Canadian Pacific, which,
to use ils own expression, "spans the
earth" wilh its eighteen thousand
miles of road and its many steamships. These forces act in concert
nud lind lines of effort in all sorts of
subordinate departments and bureaus
which have in hand irrigation, the
opening of new areas, colonization
and enlistment of capital. Study of
the whole is dominant, for the people seem to have grasped the idea
that their own individual prosperity
is involved iu the common weal. The
banking system is one of the most
powerful means of promotion anil
safeguards against misfortune, Americans have admired this system these

Wc, therefore, should not apply tbe
Medicine Hat test to everything in
the Dominion. One cannot yel say-
how great is the area of arable land
in the Dominion, for there are large
sections which have, not yet been
opened and the. quality of which is a
matter for furl her investigation. The
statement has been made that of the
3,700,000 square miles of Canada only
440,000 square miles is fit for farming. This, however, excludes grazing
lands and other areas which will unquestionably come iu laler on.

No Half-Way Houses
In Ending the War
Choice of Both Sides in the Contest
Is Surrender or Defeat, Says
London Times
A London Times editorial headed
"Futile peace schemes" contains lhe
following passages. "There is nol lhc
slightest intention or lhe slightest
wish ou either side of the Atlantic
to accept mediation. The nations
opposed to Germany know well what
they are fighting for. Tlicy mean to
utterly end thc system which forced
war on a peace-loving world and
which as they clearly perceive would
infallibly lead to a renewal of the
conflict upon a scale slill more awful
wcrc it not now lorn up by the
roots. These roots are still deep in
the minds of the militarist classes of
Central Europe and their - deluded
dupes. The war, Tirpitz said, must
prove lhal England has not beaten
Germany. The war, the allies reply
wilh one accord, must prove pajft all
question of doubt that the alliance
has beaten Germany.^ There is no
place for a compromise, or thc good
offices of mediation. The choice to
both sides is surrender or defeat.

"Danger Ahead" is the Warning
Which Headache Signals to You
���RUE, an occasional headache
may result fipm conditions
that pass away, but "persistent headaches" tell of serious
trouble, and demand attention.
Women are more liable to
headaches than men. The direct
cause may be overwork, worry or
mental anxiety, but the real
source of trouble is debility of
the nerve centres.
The brain is the "central station" of the nervous system, and
here is first felt any unusual
strain. Headache results, and
you are warned of the exhausted
condition of the nerve cells.
The first thought is of relief,
and too often there is formed the
habit of resorting to headache
powders or tablets, instead of
aiming at the restoration of the
nervous system.

father, who owns a farm of 150 acres near Weston,
Ontario. With the exception of a younger brother, he
is the only male help of the father on the farm. The
father is a man of advanced years.
In granting the man exemption "until he ceases to
be employed in agricultural labor," Mr. Justice Duff
"The Military Service Act does not deal with the
subject of the exemption of persons engaged in the agricultural industry; and the question which it is my duty
to decide is whether the applicant being and having
been, as above mentioned, habitually and effectively engaged in agriculture and in labor essential to the carrying on of agricultural production, ought to be exempted
under the provisions of the Military Service Act.
"These two propositions are indisputable :
"(1) In order that the military power of the allies
may be adequately sustained, it is essential that in this
country and under the present conditions, there
should be no diminution in agricultural production.
"(2) The supply of competent labor available for
the purpose of agricultural production is not abundant,
but actually is deficient.
"The proper conclusion appears to be that the applicant, a competent person, who had been habitually
and effectively engaged in labor essential to such production, ought not to be withdrawn from it.
"It is perhaps unnecessary to say that such exemptions are not granted as concessions on account of personal hardship, still less as a favor to a class. The sole
ground of them is that the national interest is the better
served by keeping these men at home. The supreme
necessity (upon the existence of which, as its preamble
shows, this policy of the Military Service Act is founded) that leads the State to take men by compulsion and
put them in the fighting line requires that men shall be
kept at home who are engaged in work essential to en
able the State to maintain the full efficiency of the combatant forces, and whose places cannot be taken by
others not within the cla?s called out."
