Dr. Millard performed a very
critical operation iu setting a broken leg for an employee of the Inter
national Lumber Company one day
last week The bone had been
broken with u grab hook in a
slanting way, and would not hold
together. A piece oF steel was
screwed onto each end of the bone
when it was put intc, v'"ce. This
will prevent slipping until the bone
knits, and incideutly stops the suffering of the patient.
At the meeting of the City Cotin
cil ou Monday evening only two
questions were debated, viz. amending the Pound By-Law to allow
milch cows to run at large at all
times providing that their bells be
removed at night. Horses and
young stock to be debarred as here
tofore. The other question was
that ot establishing some place or
places where farmers and others
can tie their horses when they
come to town to do their business.
At present there is no p'ace except
along the railing opposite the post
office, where the streets are very
narrow. The Chairman of the
Board of Works was instructed to
into the matter and report at the
next meeting if he cau find a suitable place for hitching posts on one
of the side streets.

"Anything ilu matter?"
I lie Vicar had become aware of a
certain disorder in Hilary's aspect.
The young gcntlcinan had always
been remarkable for a clean, shining,
well-polished air, borne out by his irregular face, iiis clear complexion,
and golden hair.
"I mighi ask what i.s tlir matter
with you?" Hilary responded, "but 1
won't, 1 am worried, confoundedly
worried. 1 have just been told that,
the gossip-mongi rs here are saying
that "
"I know. 11 is about Lady .Soulh,
Is it not?"
There was something of uncertainly in ihe manner of his speech which
I lilary did not notice.
"Ves, ii is about Lady -South; of
course it is a  lie!"
"ll is, unfortunately, quite true

lier. I have just conic from there. If
lie had not been an old man, and a

his wife and daughter."

"The citation has oni) just been

"They had better not say il to

dearest hope is lhal Margaret .Soulh

though a knife wire driven through

Il.e went off, in.' agitated to say
good bye, and lhe Vicar walked on to

In r worst for him in the serene certainly that the master would never

Then he sighed for another Iron.

Yel comfort came lo him, and his
l.i acl v as lifted with some thought.

and innocent, (lit, ii was loo- -the
hoy ground oni words between his
teeth on which the Recording Angel
urelv dropped ,i lear.
lie went ihrottgh his dinnci iii silence, which, being reported on lu
lhe servant's hall, caused much uneasy speculation as to whal was
wrong with Master Hilary, or whai
"he'd been a-doln' of." The cook had
sent him up an excellent lillle din
uer, considering that it was an impromptu, The head gardener had cut
Ids very first bunch of ripe grapes in
honor of the occasion. Hilary merely
toyed with one or two of them���
would have bi I hi. ni pa.ss if be had
not been reminded by the butler that
the gardener had done, him special
honor in cutting the grapes.
The first lire of the year had been
lil in the library. There was plenty
of lime for Hilary to consider lln
matter of returning to town, for
there was no train before, len o'clock.
Ue did not know how he was going
to get through the time intervening,
llis thoughts worked upon earb olhcr as the corn is ground between the
stones of a mill. His brain fell over-
stimulated, lie was restless lo be
doing something.
Ife. got up from his chair and began to walk up and down the library,
as soon as the servant bad departed,
having left cigars and cigarettes al
his elbow. His feet in lhe Turkey
carpels made no sound, lie wauled
to bc out doing something. Earlier
in lhe. afternoon he had thought that
hc would look in on the Egertons.
Ho. liked Lionel Egerton; and he had
liked ilrs. Egerton before ihis afternoon, while looking upon her as
something    incomprehensible.      Now
he liked her no longer. He made a
wry face as he ibought upon her
and was sorry for her husband.
He could nol go to sec anyone, lie
was so wretchedly ill al ease that hc
would be incapable of concealing his
(motions, leu o'clock, ll would \e

To himself he said; "I can'l possibly get away now, the minute he has
come. How am 1 going to slick il
till tomorrow?"
The Squire came up lo lhe fire and
warmed his hands at lhe blaze; suddenly Hilary was struck dumb by the
I calamity which lay upon his face as
it was revealed in lhe. firelight, He
looked a man who had received a
blow  from   wliicli   he  still   reeled.
"Whal i-- the matter, Don?" Hilary

They are not stranded in lhc ordinary sense of the wind, for no eases

tome, owing to lack of passenger accommodation, and il is stated thai
iyon were the wai t6 cud soon fully

The position of. some of these Canadian visitors is pathetic. There, are

-Result  of  'Comb  Out'  in  Britain  Is
Kept Secret
*! lie resull of England's great
ilpring "combing out" to raise an
a. my of 500,000 for Sir Win. Robertson is eagerly awaited. Absolute
arcrccy lias surrounded the details of
the nation's latest effort lo procure
su n. Whether the full complement
ol 500,000 has been obtained will not
be known until the official announcement, but it is certain that several
hundred thousand of those hitherto
Exempted have been drafted.
' The "comb out' 'plan started with
ie withdrawal of many men from formerly "protected" occupations, chiefly the munitions factories, where old-
n men from less essential trades
took the places. A rigid search for
���lackers was also instituted.
Popular sentiment throughout England has supported the "comb out."
.(Tllis is almost England's last sweep
if hunianhood. If it has failed, or if
���till morc men arc required, one of
.wo things is inevitable���the raising
4>f thc age limits, or the withdrawal
pi men essentia! in industry.

A Jewish nation with modern cities, a free govejiuneiil and a population of iwo millfbii, will be established iu Palestine after the war, in the
opinion of Nathan Strauss, philanthropist.
He loolo for a marked exodus of
Jews from the United States aud
oilier countries, back to their father-
land. Religious jews, lie believes,
will not hesitate to give up their
wealth and properly in America and
return to Palestine to fulfill lhc Biblical prophecy. Strauss also expect,
thousands of Christians lo go there.
"Wc will establish a government
along whatever linos the allies suggest," leclarcd Strauss. "There is
no selfishness about it. 'lhe Bible

back. They must decide whal is

Lieut. Gleason of the 102nd,
Batt. has been killed in action. He
left with the 67th Western Scots
aud received his commission in action and was tiansferred to Warden's Warriors recently,
The horao always has been recognized as man's closest luilmul companion, and It is a question aa to whether
the man ever lived who did not delight
in driving or riding a good horse, 'i'lrls
subject Is nf partlealar lati n at to every
man who raises or liainllrs horses, An
old saying is that eggs and colts are
much aliko, for they must be broken
before tlicy can be used.
Tbe proper breaking of a rnlt, says
John Buckler, who has charge nf the
livo stock at the Iowa experimei I Million, determines In lnrirc pari the tutu: ������ usefulness of the horse, ami no man
tvirn has dealt in horses and c.i < rlencad
difficulties In their management will
deny lhat thero is much room for Improvement in thai, lino. Every day
brings fresh Illustrations of Improper
breaking. Less Ihan a week ago a man
drove down to thc experiment stnllon
barn, driving a horse that had been
nulled for more than two years that
had not been taughl to back', This la
only one of many pimilnr cases,
Ilr .'ides the losses resulting from Improper breaking, thousands of dollars
are lost, to the farmers every year by
selling horses that have not been properly fitted for sale.
In breaking, the first thing to bo considered Is the nature (if the horse. The
dispositions of no two horses are exactly aliko. There If also a great difference in the draft temperament and
those more highly bred, such as trotting
and coach horBes, tbe former requiring
much less preparatory handling than
the latter.
After studying closely the disposition
of the colt, the next step Is to halter,
and in this, as well as all other periods
of the breaking, the person ln charge
should exercise patience. The colt
should be gotten Into some shed or box
stall, preferably one with a ground
floor, so thero will be no danger of slipping. Now, with halter, to which Is
attached 15 feet of rope, gently work
around the colt, caressing him as much
as possible, so as to win his confidence,
and when he sees you are not going to
hurt him you can usually put the halter
on without any trouble. Now, presuming this colt to be one that will pull
on the halter, take the loose end of the
rope and pass It through a hole In the
manger or around a post, bnck between
the fore legs, around the girth and tie.
The colt Is now tied by both head and
body. Step back and let him fight It
out, which will take only a short time.
And when tied ln this way there is no
danger of injury as la sometimes the
case when tied by the head only. As
soon aa he gives up pulling go to him
and caress him. and by so doing give
him to understand that you are his
friend. It If wall to leave him tied for
some UUI* time, after which hs ma,
be led.
Leading Is a very Important part. A
horse well broken to lead Is more attractive, easier to handle, and will command a higher price ln the market Ihan
one that Is not. In training to lead, always teach the colt to walk b.-lcle you
and never allow him to follow along
behind, as Is often done. This can he
done by taking a whip In the left hand,
touching him up a little from behind.
After being well trained to walk beside
you, encourage him to trot.

New Type Machines
Flew in  Same Formation as Geese,
Which Made Hits Difficult
In official circles it has been definitely concluded that twenty-two
German airplanes participated in lhe
raid ou London. The raiders were
of lhc Go tha type of machine. These,
are three times lhc size of thc "-ingle
scalers and would therefore appear
to be flying at a third of tlle height
thai smaller machines would seem lo
be. The immense size of the new
type also would give the impression
that lhc airplanes were flying slow
whereas lhcy i ravelled between To
and SO miles an  hour.
When over London the raiders
were always within range of lhe anti-aircraft guns, which Ihe auiliorities
say, registered many hits,-though
none of the Germans were brought
('.own hy the artillery, British airmen often relumed from the German
lines with machines punctured by
bullets and pilots wounded, SO il is
not surprising thai the difficult targets were not brought down over,
London. The raiders flew like geese
a formation mosl difficult lo break
lip and destroy.
Though the program of London's
defences is completed it i- nol i
claimed that no improveiuenl is pos-|
siblc as no general ever is satisfied
wilh  the  size of his army.

for them is mainly among fanners,
lhe placing of lhis order is an excellent indication of lhe prospcriiy prevailing among fanners iu Southern

"lion. W. M. Mat-tin,
Premier of Saskatchewan,
Dear Mr.  Martin; -
The subject of this letter is ihe 5th
Canadian Infantry Battalion, ami my
leasons for addressing yuu on this
subject rue that lln .slh Canadian Infantry Baiialion is the first Saskatchewan battalion and you an- ihc
Premier of  Ihe  province,
When war broke mil in July, 1914,
lhc mnbilizalioii orders were very unusual, instead of battalions in ing
formed al home, lhcy wenl forward
in \ alcarlicr in small detachments,
from lhc centres where ihey joined
llu- colors, Consequent!) lhc Western Canadians had no means of (lis
tinguishing in the numerals o( tin
first sixteen baltalinns llu particular
batlulions which were made, up of
men from their province.
The men who went from Saskatchewan were recruited half by lhe
militia infantry and half by llie cavalry militia, the hitler volunteering at
lhc outset for service as infantry ami
ill order io preserve their identity,
the Western cavalry were formed into a composite battalion known as
llie 5th Canadian Infantry Battalion,
(Western Cavalry) which was made
up originally of; l-'th Manitoba Dragoons; loth Saskatchewan Light
Horse; 27th Saskatchewan light
Horse; 29th Saskatchewan Light
Horse; ,.0ih llritish Columbia Lighl
Horse; 31st Brilish Columbia Lighl
Horse; J.'ih Central Alberta Horse
lhe Corps of Guides (Saskatchewan)
and on leaving Valcarticr lhc West'
ern provinces in the approximate
proportions���of Saskatchewan 75 per
cent.; Maniloba, ten per cent.; Brilish Columbia, len per ccnl, and Al
berla live per cent.
Before proceeding to France from
Kngland it was decided to use four
baltalinns as a reserve lo tlle three
brigades proceeding to the fronl, and
about two hundred men, constituting
the Saskatchewan Company of tin
llt.li Canadian Infantry Battalion
were at once transferred lo the 5th
Canadian Infantry Battalion, so that
amongst thc units which proceeded
to the front wiiii Ihc first Canadian
division, the. province of Saskatchewan was solely represented by one
infantry battalion, namely lhe. 5th.
Owing to the methods of organization which 1 have mentioned and the
various changes which took place, Unpeople of Canada lost I race to a certain extent of the regiments which
really represented their especial localities and although (he other regi
ments of the first division were v( ry
early claimed by trie provinces from
which iheir men came, Saskatchewan
never claimed thc 5th, but Moose
Jaw and Yorkton as local centres occasionally showed some interest.
Afler lhe second battle of V'prcs
and ihc stirring engagements of J;cs-
tubcrt and Givenchy, lhc orders of
the. day were filled with congratulatory messages from various provinces
and principal (owns of Canada. There
was uo message, however, from Saskatchewan or any cily in the province. This want of enthusiasm was,
of course, of minor importance, but
thc failure of Saskatchewan lo show
interest or in any way support llieir
baiialion has been fell rather severely.. Thc question of regimental funds
on proceeding overseas to France
was a very serious one but for the
generosity uf a few personal friends
of the senior officers there would
have been much suffering dur.ng lhc
fall ami winter of 1915. At uo lime
have we had a large fund nor has
much opportunity iver presented itself to enable us by our own efforts
to create a fund. The canteen arrangements at Valcarticr were, most
irregular, none of the profits found
lluir way to regimental funds for lhc
benefit of tiie nun. During our stay-
in England lhe profits of the British
canteens operating in Canadian ana.
wcrc paid into regimental coffers and
were -pent on comforts for thc men
in England, with thc esc ption "f
30 pounds, which sum supplanted by
a donation of 60 pounds made by
Moose Jaw friends of om- former
colonel, w.re Uie only moneys which
were al lhc disposal of our commanding officer for nrgiinentul -purposes.
