Mixed Farming

Statistics show that the live'stock
farms ure the most profitable aud fertile.
t'ntil a decade ago this county was
a great stock raising county, before it
went grain crop mini, und when stock
prices were not half as good us now.
The farmer-stockman, raising and
feeding stock, fattens his farm and
liis bunk balance, gets two prices for
his crops, keeps for himself the profits of the grain speculator and the
railroad and increases tlie demand for

bigger, broader nnd richer man by being an "all round farmer."

Old or Young at Forty
Much Depends on Our Every Day
Habits of  Life
A physical director in ihe Young
.Men's Christian Association who has
examined more than 2,000 city men iu
the past year, snys that be limls tbo
type phyElcally deteriorating. Tho
average business nil u, he says, grows
old before liis time. At forty, he
, finds, tlie business mnn bus many ot
i the symptoms of actual old age, and
often seems on the \er__e cf a physical breakdown,
That is familiar talk. Tbe difficulty
is that so much of it is so nearly
true. The encouraging part of It, ou
the other hand, is thm few men need
to be old at forty unless they choose.
In a large measure, il is an optional
matter. If one keeps bis nose to tlie
grindstone of business, eats too much,
indulges himself too freely, gets no
physical exercise and takes bis business cares home nnd to bed with him
every night, he is .iretty likely to be
what, the director snys lie is.
Tlie suggestion that a man���or woman���is old at forty ought to be absurd. That it is nut absurd is something of a reflection upon that portion of us who because we are unwilling to take little trouble, are actually

CASE of Mrs. HAM

Vegetable Compound

Shamrock, Mo.���"I feel It my duty
to tell the public the condition of my
health before using
your medicine. I had
falling, inflammation and congestion,
female weakness,
pains in both sides,
backaches and bearing down pains, was
short of memory,
nervous, impatient,
passed sleepless
nights, antl had
neither strength i_r
energy. There was always a fear and
dread ie my mind, I had cold, nervous,
weal: spells, hot flashes over my body.
I had n plica in my right side that was
ao s.re that ] could hardly bear the
weight of my clothes. I tried medicines
and doctors, but they did me little good,
and 1 never expected to get out again.
I got Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound and Blood Purifier, and I certainly would havebeen in grave or in an
asylum if your medicines had not saved
me. But now I can work all day, sleep
well at night, eat anything I want, have
no hot flashes or weak, nervous spells.
All pains, aches, feara and dreads are
gone, my house, children and husband
ore no longer neglected, aa 1 am almost
entirely free of the bad symptoms 1 had
before taking your remedies, and all is
pleasure and happiness in my home. "���

The thousands of English soldiers
now on French toil are to Frenchmen,

Another Tommy dwelt on the awful
fact that lie had been "twenty-two

He, too, had been in tlie thick of the
fray und nud killed several of the
enemy with Ills own hand, which
recounts the Frenchman, tilled him
with a "gentle joy,"
"Arc the inhabitants of this part
of France hospitable'.'" the journalist
inquired of another Tommy.
"Awfully nice," replied the soldier.
These words the correspondent, after
giving them in English to show how
strange they look, translates: "Ter-

wiiiuh must appear perfectly incomprehensible to Frenchmen, who do not
see how a thing can be "awful" and
"nice" at the same time.

Football was being played wherever
there were Englishmen Often tlie
games were between teams of English
and French soldiers. Where a ball
was not to be had the players were
quite content to kick about a bundle
of clothes.
When uot thus engaged, the English soldier finds time to enter the
lists of Cupid. The French writer
tells of ono Tommy whom he saw
"promenading proudly before the awestruck glances of the villagers with

Journalist added in corroboration of
this statement, that he himself heard
Tommies "singing discordantly to the

Also he found that Tommy had a
sense of humor. On one occasion, he
learned a German officer came charging at the head of his men into an
English trench. Leaping over tlie
edge of it he fell headlong into a sea of
black mud, from which he picked himself up, black and dripping, and ��yc-
"What a confounded nuisance this

Whereupon a Tommy, about to run
his bayonet through the intruder,
hurst into roars of laughter and made
him a prisoner instead.
"And ihe Tommies arc philosophers

one of Ihem say solemnly to a comrade: 'If you have any money, spend
It all today. Vou may be dead tomorrow!' "
Figures That Carry Lesson
Large Importations From Foreign
Countries of Grain by Great
Great Britain imported 51,786,015
bushels of wheat from Canada in
1913. She also imported 9,360,'100
bushels from Hussia, 2,050,987 from
Germany, 804,533 from .Prance, 201,-

Austria-Hungary, and 76,533 bushels
from Bulgaria, a total of J2,759,019
bushels that will have io be made up.
There was a decrease in Russia's exportation to Britain of 7.000,000 bushels In 1913, compared with 1912, and
of 24,0000,000 compared With 1911.
In 191", the United S.ates supplied tlie
Doited Kingdom with 80,13,870
bushels, an increase of 32,000,000
bushels over 1911, while Canada's increase in 1913 over llll2 was only
1,177,000 bushels. Great Britain's

Sir     William      Ramsay      Translates
French  Chemist's Warning
Sir \Yilii_m Ramsa^ writes to the
London Times,, enclosing a translation
of part of an article which appears
in the current numuer of Hie Comptcs
rendtis" of tlio French Academy of
Science. Il is by M, Victor Henri,
'ii French chemist of the highest reputation; 11. Urbaln is one of the most
distinguished scientific men. Tin
translation is as follows:
".M. Urban, who      i had an oppo
tunlty of examining a nui.ber of Ger
man  .-.hells  which  have  failed  to explode,   informs     me   that    explosive
shells of 77 calibre and shrapnel shells ,
contain mostly a  large    quantity of:
violet brown  powder, smeling strong ;
ly of white phosphorus, 97 per cent. '
of which consist of various kinds of
phosphorus, the red variety predominating.
"in the explosive shells the phos-
pl'.orus is -,'onlained in a cylindrical
box, one inch by two inches, lu lhe
shrapnel the bails are contained iu a;
cylindrical box, two and tua-balf
inches in diameter, and the inter :
slices between the balls re filled by
the violet brown powder, containing
97 per cent, of phosphorus. The balls
are roughened, so as to retain a certain quantity of adhering phosphorus.
"Consequently, fragments of Ger
man shells and shrapnel carry into a
wound more . ��� less phosphorus, This
should be speedily called t, tho notice of surgeons, for phosphorus produces morlillcaiiiiu of the tissues ii i
contact ewn witli a shrapnel hall;
microbes, especially anaerobic ones,
which produe, tetanus and gangrene,
llnd a mel,.um favorable to their development, and tne wound may be
come grave. Wounds produced by
German shrapnel and shelli should
therefore be greatly lucised and cleaned out  with lhe greatest (..re."
Sir William adds that the temperature of explosion would convert lhe
comparatively   harmless    red    phosphorus into tlio dangerous yellow va- i
riety. i

the best suited to all ..iti.'ciis of
Courtenay We believe il is the
best vet with but one exception.
Mr. Idiens has not fought fairly
from the beginning of this controversy. Because A r. Idiens has sold
j.35 lots to a lot of "suckers" for
$250 is no reason why the rest ot
us should let them have the post
office built away out in the suburbs.
In this connection we are quite
willing to admit that we were
"suckers" enough to buy four lots
at $250 each, t. e productive value
of which is practically nil.
Report issued by  lhe Department
of Trade and Commerce upon ap
plication,     This publication contains tlie  various reports from the
Canadian    Trade    Commissioners
throughout the wdrid, information
on overseas markets aud  a list of
openings for Canadian manufacturers.    From time to time then- will
be included   the reports   received
from Mr  II. R. MacMillan, who is
now investigating conditions in the
principal markets on behalf of the
Canadian timber trade in his capa
city as Special Trade Commissioner.
So keen i.s the interest shown in tlu

is placing an order with   British  offer, and so keep in touch with the
Columbia mills for 10,000,000 feat Movement for wider markets,'
of demension lumber for shipment
in June and July.    The Provincial
Government was informed of   its
successful efforts on behalf of  the
export lumber trade by cable from
Sir   Richard   McBride.     Hitherto
British Columbir firms whether bidding on private or British Government orders have been able to deal
only     with     American     brokers
through whom it has been the custom to place such European orders.
Thus the order now .secured is the
first instance in which direct dealing
between the Old Country nnd this
portion of thc Empire has been formally recognized as the only proper
method,     In    future    all   British
Government enquiries  for Pacific
Coast   lumber   will   be   addressed
direct  to   British  Columbia as   a
result of the representations made
by  the Provincial Government   to
the Home authorities.    British Columbia lumbermen have al.so be-11
handicapped b\ the control of available shipping secured by American
brokers   and    American   shipping
companies which deal in lumber as
well as carrying it to foreign markets.    This feature was one of the
main  reasons for the despatch of
Mr, II.   R, MacMillan  as Special
Trade Commissioner to the United

was slightly afraid of her uncle. Ills '
secret ways repelled her;   he had u ]
way or miking wilb bis sighllcss eyes
upturned;   he seemed to understand
the unspoken thoughts of others.
"Whal is- thn matter?" he asked.
Marlon laughed. None of ibe others i
had come down yet.
"What should be the matter?" she:
"Well, you shuddered,    You should
be sorry for me, my dear.    Some of i
tlicse  days  1  mean  to tell  you  the
story of my life.   Ob, yes, il will be a
story���what a  story!  And  you  will I
never forget lt.as long as you live."
There was something uncanny in
the words���a veiled threat, the suggestion of one who had waited for a
full revenge, witli the knowledge that
the time would come. Yet the scarred
face was without expression; the eyes
were vacant.
"Won't you tell nie now'.'" .Marion
asked   softly.    "I   am  so   sorry   for \
The    sweel,      thrilling     sympathy
would have moved _. stone, but it bad \
no effect upon Ralph,   lie merely car-j
essed Marlon's slim, lingers and smiled,   ll was significant of his extraordinary power that lie found Marlon's j
blind without feeling for It.   He was \
given   to  touch  those   slim   fingers,
And yet he never allowed Marion to j
kiss hlni.
"All in good time," be said; "but.
not yet, not yet."
Before .Marion could reply, .Mrs.
Cordon Ravenspur came into tbe
room, Marion seemed to divine more
than see that, something had happen-
ed. She jumped to her l'eet , and j
crossed the room.
"Hear aunl," she said quickly.
"What is It?"
"Vera," Mrs. Cordon replied. "She
called me into her .00111 just now saying she was feeling _rr from well. I
had hardly got Into, ker room before
she fainted. 1 have never known Vera
do such a thing before."
Ralph was sitting and drumming his
fingers on the table as if the subject
liad not the slightest interest for him.
But, with the swiftness of lightning, a
strange, hard, cunning expression
flashed across his face and was gone.
When Marion turned to him he had ,
vanished also. It almost seemed as (
if he had the gift of fernseed.
"A mere passing weakness," Mar-1
ion said soothingly.
"I should like tu think so,"    Mrs. I
Gordon  replied.  "In  normal  circumstances 1 should think so.    But not
now; not now, Marion."
Marion sighed deeply. There were
times when even she was oppressed.
"I'll go and see Vera," she said. "I '
11111 sure there is no cause for alarm." j
Marion   slipped   rapidly   away   up j
the stone stairs and along the echo- j
ing corridor  toward's    Vein's  room-
She was smiling now, and she kissed
her hand to the dead and gone Raven-
spurs   frowning upon  her  from  the j
walls.    Then   she  burst    gaily   into
Vera's room.
"My dear child," she .ried, "you
really must not alarm us by���"
She paused suddenly. Vera, fully j
dressed, was seated in a chair, whilst
Ralph was by her side. He seemed!
more alive than usual; he bad been
saying something to Vera that hnd
brought Ibe color to her face. As
.Marion entered he grew grave and
self-contained; like a snail retreating
into Ils shell, Marlon thought, lie sat
down and tattooed with his lingers
on the dressing table.
"1 had no idea you had company,"
Marion smiled.
"1 intruded," Ralph said gravely.
There was a sardonic Inflection in his
voice. "Vet I flatter myself that
Vera is the better for my attention."
Marion looked swiftly from one to
the other. She was puzzled. Almost
flawless as she was, she hnd her minor weaknesses, or she had been less
charming than she was, and she hated
to be puzzled. Vera was no longer
pule and all signs of languor had departed, yet she looked confused and
ihere was the trace of a blush on her
"Sometimes I fancy that Uncle
Ralph is laughing at us all," she said,
net inn.
"Tuke   Ihis,"   ! i,   whispered,   "Take
ii ami the cure will he complete,
('rush li up between yonr leeth und
drink a glass of water afterwards."
He forced a miiiiiII white pellet be-
iween Vera's leeth; he heard her
teeth crushing It. With his peculiar
gift for finding things, he crossed over
to the wushsLind and returned with a
glass uf water.
"Vou are better?" lir asked, as Vora
gulped the water down.
"Oil, yes, uncle; are you a wizard or
what?   My headache seems to ba>
lifted from me as one lakes oil' a luU.

"Suy no moro aboul It; think no

"Bul my mother and Geoffrey

"Ah, you love Geoffrey? Hul. ihere

You waul to rid the house of ils nameless terror; you waul lo be tree, to
marry Geoffrey and be happy. Deal
child, all these things will come If you
listen In me. I swear it. And now
will you promise mo thai ynu will
say nothing of this to 11 sour.'"
"Hear uncle, 1 promise."
Ralph hud grown eold uud moody
ugaln. When Marion returned with
her salts he slipped out of the room
as callously us If he were not in the
least -Interested. And while many
anxious eyes followed Vera ul break-
fust time, .Ralph alone wus Indlfferont,
brutally  indifferent,  Marion  thought,
"Are you thinking of the saiue
thing that we are?" she asked.
"No," Ralph said shortly, "I was
thinking what poor bacon this  is."
A  Little Sunshine
After luncheon, Geoffrey was hailing over the slone balustrade of the
terrace wailing for Vera. Beyond a
slight restlessness and extra brilliancy of.the eye she was heller. She
bad proposed a ramble along the
cliffs and Geoffrey had assented eagerly.
His anxiety was lulling away like
the ashes of his cigarette, At first he
had been inclined to Imagine that
Vera's indisposilion bad been a move
on the part of the unseen foe. Hul he
put this idea from him as illogical.
The enemy was not in tlie habit of
using the gloved band like this. He
struck down fiercely ami remorseless-
"No," Geoffrey murmured aloud;
"Vera could not have  been spared!'
A gentle hand was laid upon his
arm. Marlon slood beside him. They
were alone at that angle of the terrace and unseen from the house.
"You are right," said Marion. "Don't
worry ubout that any more."
Geoffrey nodded approvingly, lie
slipped his arm round Marion's waist
and kissed her in a brotherly fashion.
Marion inclined towards him with
half-closed eyes and a brightened color. Her limbs trembled; the pressure
of her lips was warm  and sweet.
"Dear little sister," Geoffrey murmured. "What should we do without
Marion drew herself away abruptly.
She rested her clasped hands over the
stone balcony so that Geoffrey should
not see their unsteadiness; her flushed face wns half averted, li was a
taking, a perfect picture.
"What would Vera sav?" she ask
"As if Vera would mind! Don't
we all love you the same? And how
many times has Vera seen me kiss
you? If there were no Vera, little
sister, then yon may be sure that I
should have kissed you in a different
Marion laughed at the easy impertinence. That Geoffrey liad no real
love or passion for anybody lint Vera
she knew perfectly well. She laughed
again, but there was nothing spontaneous in It; indeed, anybody hut a
youthful egotist In love could have
detected a certain jarring no;e of
"Here Is Vera," said Geoffrey. "Let
us ask her."
They put It to I or merrily. Tbey
might have been In a world beyond
all sorrow or suffering. The music of
their fresh young voices floated in the
air. Then Marlon bent over the balustrade and watched the lovers out of
sight. Her face grew hard; a veil of
heavy years seemed to bave fallen
over it.

Tiie following communication was
recently addressed to Hie editor of

proper place for this practice to occur. Thu sleeping car company s
instructions to the porters require

Don't get up late and shave, if by

one objects to a man shaving if he
does not interfere unreasonably with
oilier men wbo want merely to wash
their face and bands, etc.
Tbe Instant you have finished yonr
toilet, get out of lhe room. You have
no further rights there while tha other
men require the room as a lavatory.
They are anxious to see you go as
quickly as you can. Don't stay in this

Several methods have been devise I
to control tho various forms of smui

gallons. The grain to be treated
should he spread out upou a clean
tloor or caucus,"in a layer two or llirse
inches thick, The solution is then
sprinkled over it. An ordinary sprinkling enn or small spray pump is useful
for this purpose. The ijruin should
be shovelled or raked over during
sprinkling to iusuiv thai every grain
is thoroughly wette'd. After this, the
grain is shoveled Into a close pile ami
covered with canvas or old sucks 10
hold in the fumes of the formalin. The
grain should remain in ibe covered
pile for Irom eight to ten hours, after
which it must be spread out thin so
as to dry without tproutin;. One gal-
ion ot solution is sufficient for a
bushel of grain.
After drying, the seed may be
plained at once or stored for future
use. Here it is Important to remember that the seed may become re-infested from old socks, bins or even
the drill itself. Everything, therefore, whicli comes in coi:tact with the
grain after it is treated should be first
thoroughly disinfected with a strong
formalin solution. Commercial formalin usually coits from twenty-five to
fifty c?nts a pound (pint), if the grain
is planted before it is completely dry,
enough more should be sown to compensate for the increase In size of the
seed through swelling.
In treating stinking smut of wheat
it is be: to Immerse the gr.iin so that
the smut balls can be skimmed oft.���
An English school teacher recently
gave his pupils a lecture ou patriotism. He pointed oil' the high motives
whicli moved the Territorials to leave
their homes and light, for tlieir country. The BChool teacher noticed that
one boy did net pay attention to the
instruction, and as a test question he
asked him: "What motives took the
Territorials to the var?" The boy was
puzzled for a moment. then, remembering the public "send oil'" to the
local regimen' at lho railway station,
he  replied:   "Locomotives,  sir."

Fire Losses
Education In Fire Prevention Gradually Showing Results
Canada is making head wny in the
matter of reduction of lire losses.
From reports of lires in Canada for
the two months of 1915 a loss is
shown of $ .4118,881 as against 1.5,717,-
061 for the same period of 1914, or a
reduction of .1,218,177. This is the
lowest lire loss  fo rover flva years.
Of the 58i lires which occurred
ln February, 1915, however, ;;61 took
place in dwellings, and the majority
of tliese originated from easily preventable causes. Defective pipes and
lines are well established as tho
causes of the, largest number of fires.
Flues aro defective in numerous ways
and even close inspection may not
reveal a dangerous condition. Critical
examination is, in most cases, impossible, as the construction is in itself
faulty, and a cold spell, witli forcing
of the. healing apparatus, linds the
weak places.
Nervous Diseases
In The Spring
Cured by Toning the Blood
and Strengthening the
It is tlie opinion of the best medical
authorities, after long observation
that nervous diseases are more common ami more serious in the spring
than at any other time of the year.
Vital changes iu tlie system, after long
winter months, may cause much more
trouble than the familiar spring weakness and weariness from which most
(jieople suffer us the result of indoor
life, in poorly ventilated and often
overheated buildings. Official records
prove lhai in April and Jlay neuralgia, St. Vitus dance, epilepsy and
other forms of nerv i troubles are at
their worst, aud that then, more than
any oilier time, a blood making, nerve-
restoring tonic is needed.
The antiquated custom of taking
purgatives in tlie spring is useless, for
the system really needs strengthen
ing, while purgatives only gallop
through the boweh, leaving you weaker. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills are the
best medicine, for tbey actually make
the new, rich, red blood that feeds
the starved nerves, and thus cure
tbe many forms of nervous disorders.
They cure also such other forms of
spring troubles as headaches, poor appetite, weakness in tho limbs, as well
as remove unsightly pimples and
eruptions. In fact they unfailingly
bring new health and strengtli to
weak, tired and depressed men,
women and children.

about two thirds of which occur in
oats, wheat being the next greatest
sufferer. To cope with tli is danger
Bulletin 2-0, entitled "Smuts and
Rusts nf Grain Crops," prepared by
,T. E. llowitt and R. 10. Slone, has been
issued by th: Ontario Department of
Agriculture, for free distribution to
those who may apply for it. This
very practical bulletin goes fully into
the cause and cure of smuts an.l
rusts, and gives a number of ways ot
treating seed grain in order lo avoid
or lessen injury to grain crops from
these causes. Practical farmers will
hail it. as a valuable adviser regarding relief from theso two common
grain troubles.

The vicar of a mining village sent

morning liis nerves were rather

were rather dirty, so he thought there
was no harm in putting on the parson's, which he accordingly did, and

big "receiver." He had not gone very
far when whom did he meet but the
vicar, who said. "I sent my boots

To Ihe farmer: .ire on lhe farm is
greatly attributed to tlie result of
carelessness, faulty chimneys nnd
Hues, unsafe stovepipes, smoking and
careless handling of matches, and too
often allowing au accumulation of

other citizens, should sit up and take
notice, "preventable hres should go."
