Ludy Mallowbloom's reception
rooms were more than usually crowded. And every other man or woman
in the glittering salon was a celebrity. There was a strong sprinkling
of the aristocracy to leaven ihe lump;
here mid Ihere lhe fin. i of rod cloth
und gold could be scon.
in his quiet masterly style Tehigorsky pushed his wny up the stulrs.
Ralph Ravenspur followed, his hand

"Why no ynu lira:; me here'.'" he
grumbled, "I can see nothing; it only

"Vou mope too much," Tehigorsky
said gaily. "To mingle with one's fellows is good ul limes. 1 know so many
people who are here tonight."
"And I know nobody: add to which
circumstances compel me lo be
iliimli. Place me in some secluded
spot witli my back tu the wall, and
then-enjoy yourself for an hour. I dare
say I shall manage to kill lhe time."
There were many celebrities in the

"_ wonderful woman," ihe fair
authoress was saying. "Eastern and
full of mystery, you know, hid you
notice the eyes of the I'l'iucess?"
"Who eoiihl fall to?" wns tlle reply.
"They suy that she is quite live and
forty, and yet she would easily pass
for eighteen,   lull   for  her knowledge
of ihe world, 'lour ISasteri] Princess
is one of ihe most fascinating women
1 have ever seen."
Others passed, uiul bad tlle same
theme, Ralph Bllrred to a taint curiosity.
"Who is ihe iiiw marvel?" he asked,
"I don't know," Tehigorsky admitted, "The last new Hon. I suppose.
Some pretty Begum or ihe wife of
some Oriental whose dark eyes appear ti) bave tired Boclely. Hy the
crowd of peoplo coming I Ills way I
presume ihe dusky beauty Is among
I hem. If so, she' hus un excellent
knowledge of Engltoh."
A clear, sweet voice urose. At the
first sound of ii. Ralph jumped to his
feet and clutched ul his throat as if
Something choked him. Ile shook
with a great agitation; u nameless
fear had bim in a close grip,
"Do you recognize Hie voice?"
Ralph gasped.
The itussian was not unmoved. Hul
liis agitation wns quickly suppressed,
lie forced Ralph down in his seal
again.
"You will have to behave heller
than thai if yotl are lo bea trusty ally
of mine," ho said. "Come, Hint Is better! Still still; she is coming Ihls
way." .
"I'm all right now.'' Ralph replied.
"The shock of finding myself hi the
presence of Princess Zura was overpowering.    Have no fear for me."
A tall woman, magnificently dressed, was making her way inwards
Tehigorsky, Her face wus the hue of
old ivory, and as line: her great lustrous eyes gleamed brightly; a mass
of hair wus piled high on a daintily
poised head. The woman might have
been extremely young so far as lhe
touch of time was concerned, but Ihe
easy self possession told another tale.
The red lips tightened for un instant, a strange gleam came into the
'ar:: magnotlo eyes as they fell upon
Tehigorsky. Then Ihe Indian Princess
advanced with a smile and held out
her hand to the Russian.
"Ho you nre still here!" she said.
Tlicre was the suggestion of a challenge in her tones. Her eyes met
thoso of Tehigorsky as tiie eyes of
two swordsmen might meet. There
was a tigerish playfulness undorlyin.i
the words, a call note of significant
warning.
"1 still take the liberty of existing,"
said Tehigorsky.
"Vou are a brave man, doctor. Vour
friend here?"
"Is my cousin Nicholas Tehigorsky! The poor fellow is blind and
dumb, as Hie result of a terrible accident.    Host not lo notice  him."
The Princess shrugged her beautiful shoulders as she dropped gracefully Inlo a seat.
"I beard you were in London," she
said, "and something told nie that we
should meet sooner or later. Vou arc
slill interested iu occult matters?"
Again  Ralph  detected  the  note  nf
warning hi the speech.   He could see
nothing of Hie expression on that per- j
feet, face; hut he could judge it fairly
well.
"1 am more ini crested in occult
mailers than ever," Tehigorsky said
gravely, "especially in certain discoveries placed in my bands by a traveller in Tibet."
"Ah, that was your fellow-countryman,    lie died, you know!"
"lie was murdered lu the vilest
manner.   Hut before the end, he nian-
lf you know everything and proclaim

"Civilisation will <ome as one man.

The Prl icess caughl    her breath
(swiftly,   just for one moment thero
i was murder in her eyes,   She held
! her fan as if ii  were u hugger rendy
for lhe Russian's heart.
"Why   should   yoll   do   Ibis   thing?"
she asked.
"Hecause your knowledge is diabolical," Tehigorsky replied, "In ihe
llrsl place, nil who nre in the seerel
can commit murder wiih Impunity,
As Hie Anglo-Saxon pushes on hi the

"And if you uie in me meantime?

Tlie Princess smiled, she could appreciate a stratagem like this, with
dull, stolid nnd averted face, Ralph
Ravenspur listened and wondered, lie
heard the laugh thai came from lhe
lips of the Princess: he detected tlie
vexation underlying it. Tehigorsky
was a foeman worthy of her steel.

Prospects Are  Bright  For the Cattle
Raising   Industry   in   Western
Canada
Much Interesting Information wus
Contained in the report of the seorc-
tary of the Saskatchewan Cattle
Breeders' association, ut the. annual
meeting held at Regina recently. The
report in pait was us follows:
If anything, the situation wilb regard io the cattle breeding Industry
has become more serious, and the.
shortage of beef out He more marked.
This is not only true of llie Dominion
of Canada, but also of the United
States. Great Britain and France. In
fact, the shortage is world wide. The
figures in proof of this are as follows:
One year's decrease In cattle in:
Canada, 9.3 per cent.: Unl tod States,
3.3 per cent.; Britain, 2.1 per cent.;
France,  9 per cent,
Th ': the shortage is acutely felt at
the leading markets is shown by the
following figures taKe.i for the month
of September, 1913 and .1914, at ihe
six leading eattle markets in the
United Stales, namely: Chicago,
Kansas City, Ohama, St. Louis, St.
Joseph and Sioiix City. The tolal
number received during September,
1913, was 954,181, md during September, .1911, was 814,986, or a decrease of
139,196.
lt might not be fair to take lhat us
an average decreasi but cutting these
figures exactly in half we have u total
decrease in cattle shipments l'or the
year, ;.t the above named markets,
835,17H head, or roughly speaking,
300,000 pounds of beef. This decrease
for the entire United States for 1913

"True, doctor. He also, I fancy,
met with'an accident lhat, unfortunately, resulted in bis death."
Ralph shuddered slightly. Princess
Zara's tones were hard as steel. If
she had spoken openly and callously
ot this man being murdered, she
rould not have expressed the. same
thing more plainly. A beautiful woman, u fascinating one; but, a woman with no heart and no feeling
where hor hatreds were concerned.
"It is just possible I have the hey,"
said Tehigorsky.
The eyes of tlie Princess blazed for
a moment,   Then she smiled.
"Dare you use it'.'" she naked. '|If
you dare, then all lhe secrets' of
heaven and hell nre yours. For four
thousand years the priests of the
temple at I.assa and lhe heads of my
family have solved the future, Vou
know what we can do. We are all
powerful for evil. We can strike
down our foes by means unknown to
your boasted Western science. They
are all the same to us, proud potentate, ex-meddling doctor."
There was a menace in the last
words.    Tehigorsky  smiled
south.   Tho St. Paul market alone re-
la ived 38,ii'2:\ head.
The question may be asked, granting Ihese figures to be correct,  Why
the price of beef is not higher.    In
I this regard it mny be stated that the
| retail price of all meals in Canada to-
| day is approximately the same as in
I Great Britain,    Tin average price nf

How Can These Thoughtlecs Farmers
be  Reached?
We have discussed the question of
fitting poultry properly before shipping to market until it would seem
that the trouble has become chronic
with us. No one can appreciate the
need for more education and demonstration along this very line unlil ho
sees for himself tho boxes of birds
lhat eome to oily dealers Apart altogether from the act lhat feed is
scarce, any thrifty farmer or farmer's
wife would offer the mosl severe criticism if he or ska could see what we
have soon. The Coin nil Farmers'
Market of Winnipeg vory wisely look
a fow specimens of poorly dresse.il
birds and presented them before the
delegates io lhe Grain Growers' convention al Brandon. Every farmer
und farmer's wile who saw them was
astounished lo think lhat any farmer
would be foolish enough to ship such
stuff to market.
Yel that exhibit wns quite lypieul of
hundreds of pounds of dressed poultry
thai eome on our western markets.
There is no possible excuse tor shipping birds lhai are so thin that no
city family would take them as a
gift. Some geese and turkeys come
ou the market that are smaller than
medium sized ducks, ami ducks are
shipped that would nol make a meal
for two. Some eases of all classes
of fowl come to market half plucked,
dirty, bloody and so Ihin that Ihey
ean only he handled by restaurants
for making pot pie. For Ihis purpose
the price is naturally very low. It
is really astonishing to see ihe miserable condition in which smne farmsrs
send their poultry lo market.
Now, who sends this poor trash?
We know, as well as (Lies the general
public, that the thrifty farmer or
fawner's wife would not. think of shipping poultry to market before it was
properly fattened, properly cleaned
and dressed and presented in the best
possible shape, if they had no grain
io fatten them, Ihey would keep them
at home, and, If they wanted to know
how to dress and pack them, theji
would Iind out rather than ship them
in "any-old-shapo." Such si tiff is shipped by the disinterested, uneducated
farmer, the man who does not. take a
farm paper and to whom the education afforded by our agricultural colleges does not appeal, lie does not
read; he. does nol know; and, perhaps, he does not care.
This class is always Hie most difficult to reach, How can they be reached? It will require some co-operative
effort to reach ihem. For Instance,
one way would be ior dealers lo keep
a list of the names of shippers who
send forward Ihls poor stuff and turn
these names over io those who have
charge of lis educiitional work, say,
our agricultural colleges or departments of agriculture. The shipper
could then be reached direct by letters of informal ion, or personally visited by 'a district representative or
agricultural secretary, such as are
found in. some provinces of Canada.

Has Surplus of Women
Unmarried  Females Under 45 Years
of Age in England Outnumber
Males  by  Half Million
A volume in two parts containing
evidence and papers submitted to the
Dominions Royal Commission in London during its sittings in Juno und
July last has been issued. The llrst
section includes the report of the
special committee of the Royal Statistical Society ou tho emigration of
women from lhe. United Kingdom to
tho dominions and a report on the
distribution of sexes in various parts
of the empire, with special reference
to the surplus of women in tlfff British
Isles available for emigration, by
Dr. 10. C. Snow,
Dr. Snow, in the course of a paper |
on "The Magnitude of the Population
of Kngland Available for Emigration,"
recently read before the Royal Statistical Society, argued thai, apart from
military considerations, there practically was no male population for emigration from Kngland and Wales, but
an appreciable number of unmarried
women under forty-five, perhaps as
many as half a million, could be
spared. In the interests of lha future
development of the dominions tho present deficiency in the number of
women emigrants should be rectified.
The second section deals with
communications. Among the contents
are a memorandum by Mr. Charles
Bright, the consulting engineer to
the Commonwealth of Australia, and
a statement of the views cf the Empire Press Union on the subject of a
state owned Atlantic cable. The
transmission of newspapers between
the United Kingdom and the dominions is referred to. The section also
contains a memora: dum drawn up by
Mr. H, L. Drayton, chief commissioner
of the Canadian Railway Board, on
the subject of ocean freight rates to

If you wero to ask a dozen people
In di'llne un Internal bath, you would

would be correct.    To avoid any nils-j

if II were possible and agreeable to
lake lhe great mass of thinking people to witness an average postmortem
the sights they would see nnd the
things they would leurn would prove
of such lasting benefit and impress
them so profoundly that further argument in favor of Internal bathing
would he unnecessary to convince
them. Unfortunately, however, il is
not possible to do this, profitable us
such an experience would doubtless
prove to be. There is, then, only one
other way to got this Information into Ihelr hands, and that is by acquainting theni with such knowledge
as will enable them to appreciate the
value of this long-sought-for, health-
producing necessity.
Few people realize what a very
little thing is necessary sometimes
to Improve their physical condition,
Also, they have almost no conception
of how litllo carelessness, indifference or neglect can bo the fundamental cause of the most virulent
disease. For instance, that universal
disorder from which almost all humanity is suffering, known as "constipation," "aiito-intoxieatlon," "auto-in-
fection," and a multitude of other
terms, is not only curable, hut pre-
ventible, Ihrough the consistent practice of internal bathing.

is only fifty per cent, efficient." Reduced to simple English, this means
that, most men are trying lo do a

That it is impossible to continue to
do this indefinitely must be apparent
to all. Nature never Intended the
delicate human organism to be operated on a hundred per cent, overload.

not break down, and the body certainly cannot do more than a machin*.

world.

Bathing will do this, and it will do it

THURSDAY, MAY 20, 1915
Mayer Kilpatrick took a very dt
terralhed stand ta keep the Pos
Office site squabble out of the Cit.
Council, In the face of Mr.
Clement's letter stating that ttudet
no circumstances would the question
be reconsidered unless Mr, Parez
wns satisfied to take back his offer
and property, the Mayor conceded
to the wishes of those who wish to
change the siie so far as to appoint
a committee to interview Mr, Ynu-/.
and they mny nlso find out the different sites uiul the prices asked
Mr. Clements lias stated tbat a free
site will have to be furnished by
the citizens. Now, where can a lot
the size of the Parez lot be got on
Union Street, or where can the
money be got to pay tor one?
There's not a .suitable site the same
size on Union street The citizens
of Courtenay are not in the humor
(financially or otherwise) to dig
down into _i<tir Jeans for the price
of a lot. We have been accused of
being t'le only person in town
favorable to the Po��t Office being
built on Isabel street because we
happen to own property m that
vicinity. When the post office site
was first being discussed we did
not vote for the Isabel street site.
When the Government official selected the site he gave his reasons
for so doing. They see ned sound
to us, and to every other citizen in
town and also the members of the
Board of Trade. We have as yet
found uo reason to change our
mind. Tbe meeting at wdiich Mr.
Clements was present, was unanimously in favor of the present site,
and we believe it is tbe best one
available. The only site which ean
compare with it at all is the one
opposite the Riverside Hotel, and
that we believe will cost too much,
and if the cost has to be taken out
of the appropriation, the building
will not be worth sacrificing the
best corner in town for.
From time to time reference has
been made to the excellent pamphlets issued by liie Provincial Government foi the guidance of various
sections of the community, and for
the benefit and welfare of the whole
province. The small poultry keeper would do well to write to the
Department of Agriculture Live
Stock Branch, Victoria, and ask for
Circular Bulletin Ijjo, it, "Poultry
Keeping on a City Lot," which is
a ically good guide to a profitable
hobbv. The same department supplies a ureful booklet on B. C.
fruits, issued with the object of
putting the consumer in touch with
the grower, and giving various
reci-ipes aud directions for canning
and jam making, with the idea of
getting the people of B. C. to use
the home product iu preference to
American fruit,
The farmer luvno expects a crop
without plating seed is ab rother
to the dead one who tries lo run a
store without advertiring,
VICTORIA NOTES
As a result of the Conservation
movement, and the demand for a
reduction m the high cost of living.
and owing not a little to the excellent advice given in the Department of Agriculture's circular bul
letiti "Gardening on a city lot," a
large number of vacant lots and
hitherto uncultivated backyards in
Victoria aud4Vancouver have this
year been placed under crop, mnny
for the benefit of the unemployed,
.md all for the benefit of the Dominion jind Empire, The making
of two blades of grass to grow
where one (or less) grew before, is
:i most worthy object, especially iu
wnr time,
For the better prosecution of the
war the British authorities have
restricted the hours during whicli
honor may be sold,
This has had a great effect in
promoting sobriety and progress
One poor woman observd thut although the cost of food had gone
up, she and her husband ware better off, the earlier closing of saloons enabling thc latter to earlier
and get to work in good time, making a full week instead of broken
days. The Empire needs men
with full possession of every faculty, not human beings with besotted
minds and btdies, and Canada
would do well to follow the lead of
Britain. It would be a creditable
thing if the liquor trade iu Canada
voluntarily resolved to close earlier
say 9 p. in., instead of waiting for
the Government to make the necessary order, for it i.s certain that
some action of this kind is both
necessary and likely.
Di Victoria the necessity for
such action is apparent already,
the efficiency of tlie troops as well
as the civil population being impaired as things are at present, and
the same i.s true throughout Ihe
'whole Dominion, If stores c'o e
early, the saloons should follow
suit, and the progress attained
would speedily convince the
sceptic.
In the matter of promoting temperance the women of tbe west are
far behind their sisters of the east,
and in the old country, although
in other patriotic endeavours they
are well to the fore. The Conser
vation movement needs the activity
of nil high minded men and women, iu all its branches.
The following resolution was passed at a meeting of the House of
Bishops of the Church in Canada
in session assembled at Fort William, April 14: "The Bishops of
the Church of England in Canada
strongly recommend the members
of the Church oi England through
Out the Do .Union to abstain entire -
lv ftom the use of alcoholic liquors
as a beverage dulitlg the present
war aud to refain from treating
others.
"And further they urge the Pro
vincial Government to shorten con
sidcrabl. the hours during which
liquors may be sold at the present
lime.
" _nd that each Bishop lake-
steps to make this resolution known
to the different congregations in
his diocese."
A preliminary estimate prepared
by direction of the Minister of
Lauds sbows that the total value of
the lumber products of Britisli

thai the last five mouths of 1914

upheaval, that conditions were unsettled for a month or two previous
to the outbreak of hostilities owing
to tne political situation in Europe
and the consequent stoppage of the
flow of capital necessary to feed development enterprises in Canada

countries; also that the war led to

diet o( those prlvlledged to atlend the
concert mid dunce held in that coiiiiiiiin-
ity last night ill aid of the Caiuphell
Kiver hospital. The capacity of tlie hull
wns taxed to the utmost, anil hundreds
were refused admission owfiig to lack of
seating aeeoiiiiuoi la lions.
The hall was mosl tastefully decorated
by the ladies of tlle Campbell River
Social Benefit Society, and mi elaborate
sta.ee was erected (or the artistes participating iu lhe concert,
Mr. Gooding was master ot ceremonies
of the evening, and the announced programme was followed to th _ lettc.
The first number an 'Instrumental
Duet, "Cossack Dance" was most
Charmingly rendered by Mrs, John Glanville and Miss A, Thulin.
A vocal duet by Mrs. Glanville and
Miss McPherson. aec iinpauied hv M!ss
A. Thulin, met with the enthusiastic reception it undoubtedly deserved.
Mr. V. Masters' recitation of (he
"Shooting of Dan McGrew," was rendered in a manner which would have
done credit to Mr, I . W. Service himself.
Miss Mael'hersoii's rendition of llie
song "His Majesty" with chorus, �� is
exceptionally well done, and brought
the audience to its feet several times.
The Rev. C, T. Hepburn contributed
a much appreciated recitation entitled
"I am der Kaiser," and being enthusiastically encored he oblige! them with an
exceptionally splendid rendering ot
"The Habitant."
Another musical treat was the "I.tilrv
of the Gladiators," most pleasingly
executed by Mis. Glanville and Miss
Thulin.
Miss MaePhersoi) treated the audience
to a most niirlli provoking original recitation in which the celebrities of the
district were not spared.
A dance by the Misses Anna. Kllcn,
und I. llie Thulin and .Miss Maggie McNeil was a most unexpected treat and
the plaudits it evoked were indeed well
deserved.
Those ill the audience to whom the
miustrelsey of Tom Moore appealed were
genuinely disappointed when .Miss Mnc-
Phei'son deliued an encore to her song
"Irish Eyes "
The pantoinine. "A Wife Wanted"
gave ample opportunity to Misj Grimmer,
as the man ia search of a wife, to Miss
Maggie McNeil as the Wugli girl; to Mis-
Klin and l.illie Thuilii as lhe careless
housewives; "to Miss Mncl'he-son, the
dainty girl who refused to soil her
fingers: imd to Miss Anna Thulin as the
model of domesticity, to clearly prove
llieir scvnal abilities as actresses of tlle
first water.
A comic quartet ��of Miss McPherson,
Mr. and mis. Glauville and sir. Pit?.-
gernld was screauilligly funny and Unrepealed encores of the audience clearly
showed llieir deep appreciation,
The coiiludltig number, a playlet,
"whiskers" the cast of the characters of
whicli appears below, was undoubtedly
the supreme effort of the evening. The
part of tlle bride was played by Miss
Grimmer of the hospital staff and in this
portrayal of tlle nervous bride, when
unexpected delays seem to be about preventing tlie wedding, Miss Grimmer
rose magnificently to the occasion and
demonstrated her right to be considered
oil'- of tiu most "fable actresses iu the
amateur ranks of the province.
miss MaePhersoit as the elderly maiden
aunt was exceptionally good iu this
rather trying part.
Mr. Glanville jtave one the impr ssson
that the stage was no new thing to him,
and proved to be greatly at home as the
bridegroom.
Miss Anna Thtiiin as the maid gave a
very clever rendition of the part, and her
negro di.,! el was tlie least appreciated
o| her efforts.
Mrs. W, Crawford, Mi-s l.illie and
Klin Thulin were charming as bridesmaids, and ,Miss Maggie McNeil in love
with the best man clearly showed that
she was uotyro and made an exceeding'
ly pleasant impression.
Mr. Walter Crawford, the bridegroom's
uncle who was mistaken for the fat
sheriff wUh the black whiskers got
everything out of lhe part possible, and
Mr. Carl Timlin, fascinating one of the
bridesmaids made love iu au admirable
m,-i liner.
At Die conclusion of the concert the
audience sang tlie National Anthem, and
lhe hall was cleared for a dance, at
which a large number of visitors from
the surrounding islands were present.
An elaborate collation was served by
the ladies of the Guild during tlle evening iu lhe Willows hotel'spacious banquet
hall, and altogether the unanimous
opinion expressed by the guests was that
a most enjoyable evening had been
spent, and that the entertainment had
been au entire credit to tlie ladies of

Indigestion

many thousands live tar from doctors
and drug stores, very many rely ou
Dr. Chase's   medicines   to cure disease      and    maintain    health    and
strength.   This letter gives somo idea
of what perfect control Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Llvor  Pills   exert  over"   tho
most common Ills of life.
Mrs. H. K. Hewer, farmer's wife,
Eastburg, Alta,, writes: "For about
ten years I suffered from constipation, indigestion, headache and languid feelings. Treatment rom two
or three doctors afforded only temporary relief, so I turned to Dr.
Chase's Kldney-Llver Pills, and with
most satisfactory results. Headaches
have disappeared, regular habits established and general noiiltb very
much better. Bot! my husband and
I can speak highly of Dr. Chase's

High Value of Alfalfa as
Dairy Cattle
Somo Interesting facts
tho uso of legumes on llu
have been gleaned In connection Willi
some of the cow testing associations
iu tho United State"..
Alfalfa probably stands pro-eminent
as a food for dairy cattle, III fuel,
alfalfa together with good corn silage, supplemented with a ration of
grain and meal makes an excellent
ration and produces results.
.Most farmers have liy this tlmo
been thoroughly convinced of llie
value of silage, and in some manner
or other try to feed tlieir corn In this
form. Various schemes for increasing the vuliu of the protein content
of corn silage by tlie addition of various other fodders, such as cowpeas,
soja beans, etc., have been advocated,
The results along theso lines have
been disastrous In many eases. Tlie
beans are either too green or too dry
to make good silago at the time tlie
silo is (Hied, or else there is trouble
in the cutting and lining operations,
with the result that when the middlo
of winter comes a largo amount of
silago is wasted by rotting. The beans
or peas being of different texture
than the corn, do not pack tight, with
the-result that air pockets are formed
around them in process of filling and
the beans or peas spoil and In their
decomposition spoil tho silngo next
to them.
It is safer to put the pure corn into
tlie silo, and to cure the cow poas,
beans, etc., into  liny.
Results show that the farmers who
devote their attention to the produc-
ie i smallest   gains.     The  screenings   lot

A Tonic Medicine is a Necessity At This Season
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale '
People are an all year round tonic, :
blood builder and nerve restorer. Dut
they are especially valuable in the
.spring when the system is loaded with
impurities as a result of tlle indoor
life of lhe winter months. There is no
other season when the blood is so
much in need of purifying and enriching, and every dose of these Pills
helps to make new. rich, red blood. In
the spring one feels weak and tired���
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills ;.ive strength.
In the spring the appetite is often
poor-���Dr. Williams' Pink Pills develop the appetite, tone the stomach
and aid digestion. It is in tlie spring
that poisons in Hie blood li d an outlet in disfiguring pimples, eruptions
and boils. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
speedily clear the skin because they
go to the root- of the trouble in tlie
blood. In the spring anaemia, rheumatism, Indigestion, neuralgia, erysipelas and many other troubles are
most persistent because of poor,
weak blood, and it is at this time
when all nature takes on new life
that the blood most seriously needs
attention. Some people dose themselves with purgatives at this season,
but these only further -weaken themselves. A purgative merely gallops
through lho system, emptying the
bowels but it does not ���cure anything.
On the other hand Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills actually make, new blood, whicli
reaches every nerve and organ In the
body, bringing new strength, new
health anil vigor lo weak, easily tired
men, women and children. Try Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills this spring���
they will not disappoint you.

A Modest Hero
Count Karolyi, on returning to his
castle In Hungary, met, according to
the Vosslsche Zeltung, one of his
old servants who had just been sent
back wounded from the war.
"My good man. I hear you fought
valiantly at tho front," said the
count. "I should like to give you
some reward.   What shall it be?"
The old servant replied:
"Well, if you insist upon it. sir,
just give mc enough kronen to reach
from one ear to the other."
'���That seems to bo a very small
reward," replied the count, smiling at
the odd request.
"It's enough for me, sir," answered
the servant, modestly.
As the count was about to comply with lhe strange request, he noticed that the servant had only one
ear, and remarked upon the fact.
"Yes, sir, I left the olher ear on
the battlefield at Shabatz!" answered
the modest man.

A committee of Canadian agriculturists were Induced lo make a trip
to North Dakota to Investigate tlie
work of agricultural Instruction us
carried on by the U.S. government,
Mr. tieo. A. Merrick, of Winnipeg, has
Kent us llieir report, showing Ihe re-
Hull of llieir investigation, which Is ns
follows:
liear Sir, Tlie nienib ns of tin.
Committee     selected   lo   visit   .North
Dakota and Investigate at lirsi h<jii<i
tlie resuliH of tiie Field Agent System
uf agricultural instruction, report:
Tlie iiim of your committee wbh lo
obtain as much Information as possible from ihi! farmers themselves
In districts where tiie system I" iu
opera I loll, and through tbe couriesy
of Mr. Thomas Cooper, director Of tlle
North ihikoin Agricultural Experiment Station, and Mr. I1'. It. Crane,
agricultural commissioner of the Great
Norllicrn Hallway, we were enabled
to spend  three Whole days motoring
and Interviewing farmers In ibe country tributary to Valley City, in tbo
eastern purl of the slate; iMinol. '.u
tlie North Central District; Willislon,
near the western boundary; and \
half day was spenl, ou the return
journey, In the Grand Porks district.
We were also afforded an opportunity
tu each place to discuss with numerous
bankers and business men Ibe quos-
.liou of lhe results being accomplished, nnd no effort was spared lo make
tlie investigation a thorough one.
it lu our unanimous opinion that tlie
better fanning campaign being conducted in North Dakota is proving
successful in a remarkable degree,
und Is rapidly creating conditions
which will ensure an enormous enhancement of tho prosperity of the
slate, as well as contribute to a material Improvement of the social conditions of farm life. From an Investigation of tlie .cost of the work we conclude that the expenditures thereon
will be returned a hundredfold
through increase of agricultural i��ro-
ducts.
Wo are further of the opinion that
the experience of North Dakota, considered in conjunction witli lho history of agricultural progress in other
parts of North America, serves to establish conclusively thiit the attainment of a thoroughly satisfactory development of the agriciiiluriil industry of a new country requires lhat
there shall exist���as auxiliary to tlu
departments of agricultural and experimental farms���-un efficiently organized staff or held men to carry in
formation to the farmers on their
own farms.
As a natural consequence of the
unparalleled rapidity of tlie settlement of Western Canada in the last
few years we have admittedly an unusually large percentage of settler_
whose knowledge of farming is slight,
and it is therefore an abvious deduction that tlie reuiP; whicli could be
looked for from an efficient organization of Held men would be proportionately greater here than in North Dakota.
The necessity for an organized
movement to increase largely agricul
tural production in the prairie provinces by greater efficiency of farming
methods is now widely recognized,
and we cannot urge iou sttongly that
Bteps be taken without delay to Inaugurate the Field Agon: System
here, as the most effective means of
accomplishing the desire.', ond.
Wc think it well to add that In our
opinion a movement nlon. the lines
recommended, in order to be productive of lho maximum good, should
take the form of a combination of
the Farmers' Association , and the
more important business interests to
co-operate with the department of
agriculture. We are not losing sight
of the fact that tlie department of
agriculture iu aK ll'rec o" onr prairie
provinces are already do.ig excellent
extension work. Thoy are, however,
somewhat hampered by lack of
funds, and it is our conviction that
Hie organization of a Field Agent
System should bo set on foot on r.
scale sufficient to demonstrate effectively Its value with the least possible
los:. "of time.
We attach a draft covering our suggestions    for the organization of an
Association of Farming and Business,
Respectfully submitted.

Great Precaution Is Used to Guard the

Every navy has a secret code of
signals' different from the ordinary
code in general use. This code is
used only in time of war and in tlie

could read the signals ho could secure a greet advantage. So the secret code books arc carefully guarded and none is more carefully protected than that of the United States
navy. The secret code books are
issued only io tbe executive officers
of .ships and every precaution is
taken lo prevent them being stolen
by men ill the service of foreign
governments. The books are hound

Production of Cows
Some Will be Found to be ..Much More
Profitable  Than  Others���Test
Will Tell
The Dominion department of agriculture, dairy division, Ottawa, issues
the following bulletin, under the beading of "Economical Machines."
"Mas it impressed Itself on your
mind, as a practical man, selling farm
crops in the form of milk through the
medium of cows' manufacturing apparatus, that possibly some of this animated machinery needs overhauling
and closely examining? A new machine, running more economically, may
save a manufacturer its cost several
times over in a very short while. So
if your cows were regarded in this
light, some might be found to be very
economical producers, and possibly
the less said about the capacity of
others the better.
"Some cow testing figures given to
the dairy division, Ottawa, by dairy
farmers prove that some herds of
cows produce milk at a feed cost of
$1 Ai, per J00 pounds, while close by
are other herds whose average feed
cost of production is only 80 cents
per HH) pounds of milk. Again, between two cows in the same herd the
cost of feed per pound of butter-fat is
frequently found to vary as much as
from 23 to 10 cents.
What is of Importance to the average dairyman is this fact, that cow
testing helps to put each cow in the
herd on a good paying basis very
quickly. A simple plan of weighing
and testing each individual cow's mill;
soon discovers if any unit machines in
the milk making factory are not In
good economical running order. Then
that makes $20 or $30 or more clear
profit above tbe cost of feed. Does
each one of your cows do that? It
will pay you tb find out."

HOW SUEZ CANAL IS KEPT OPEN

Canada's Duty
Should Now Make Good the Boast
That She is the Granary of the
Empire "
All sorts of prophesies are being
made of the likely duration of the
war, Lord Kitchener originally said
three years. So far as newspaper reports are concerned there,is no reason to believe, ho has changed his
opinion. All that lie is known to have
subsequently remarked is tbat he
didn't know when the war could end,
but that be did know when it wouln
begin���in .day. This, ot course, was
taken as indicating that the real offensive campaign of tbe allies wouiif-
then start. Meantime, beyond sending over contingents, tlio plain duty
remains to Canada of being prepared
for any contingency. This country i.s
tlie nearest of the large overseas Dominions, and to this country liritain
will naturally look for a great portion
of her supplies. That she is doing -o
already is abundantly proven by the
fact tnat the trace returns for the
five months of the war that elapsed
In 1914 show a decidedly marked increase. For the linal quarter of tbe
year, compared with the same period
in 1913, that increase was no less
than nine and a half million dollars,
principally in lhe value nf foodstuffs.
There is surely groundwork for
thought in such a statement. Canada
has proudly claimed lo he the granary
of the empire. It i:. now up to her to
fnllll that i oast, and not only in the
mallei' of cereals, but also as regards
beef, mutton, pork, bacon and vegetables. In cultivation of lho last-
mentioned the cities and towns (an
