I was weary and ill at ease
My fingers sore with rubbing;
And a-trembling in my knees.
I know not what I was dreaming
Or what I was thinking then,
But I heard the voice ol my neighbor siv
"Why aon't you use WASHCLUAN?"
Since then it has brought to my household
A peace and a love y calm
For I boil my clothes with WASHCI<KAN
And I (eel like singing a psalm.
I have bought and I use it daily
Por my lace and collars fine,
And by 9 o'clock in the morning
My clothes are out on the line.

But I'll never buy anything M>m him
Unless lean get WASHCLKAN.

When the Squire knocked al: thc
door, which stood a lillle ajar, showing onc wall of the passage with a
few old colored prints upon it and a
tall oltl clock ticking away in the corner, he hati a sense of being observed, overlooked. When he came in,
Mrs. Barllett was standing, considering a pile of linen which Mrs. Brown
had sent down from lhc house. Hc
had walked in in answer lo her
"Please come in."
She lurncd about, and llirougli the
thickening of her disfigured skin he
fell rather than saw lhat she reddened painfully.
His first instinct was lo avert his
eyes, to look away; but he hastily reconsidered it. He smiled, looking at
the poor, seamed face as though it
were quite normal.
"So you arc settled in, Mrs. Bart-
lei t," he said.
"Oh, yes, sir. What a lillle Paradise of a place! I shall bc quite happy here, sir; may the Lord reward
you!    Won't you sit down, sir;"
Hc sat down in the little parlor
where the gate-leg table was heaped
W,ilh the linen, and the smoke-blue
Persian lay curled up on a chair in
front of the fire, fast asleep. The
lodge was quite prettily furnished, in
cottage style. It had not pone to rr.ck

WEiX in winter
Winter is a dangerous season for
lhc little ones, The days arc so
changeable���one bright, the next cold
and stormy, that the mother is afraid
to take the children out for the fresh
air and exercise they need so much.
In consequence, ihey are often cooped up in overheated, badly ventilated
rooms and are soon seized with colds
or grippe. What is needed to keep
the little ones well is Baby's Own
Tablets. They will regulate the sto-
macli and bowels and drive out colds
and by their use the baby will be
iilile to get over the winter season
in perfect safety. Tlio Tablets are

Gambling in Food Commodities Denounced by Montreal Board
ol Trade
The council of the Montreal Board
of Trade, as a means to check the
advance in liie cost of foodstuffs, has
suggested the slopping of option and
future sales on the Winnipeg grain
market by persons not interested in
farming or the milling and grain
trades. Such persons, it is .kxjarcd,
have no legitimate business interest
in the buying or selling of gfain, be-
ins merely actuated by thc desire to
profit by thc increase of price brought
about by war conditions. There is
little doubt lhal speculation on this
continent, being so generally in anticipation of advancing prices, docs
operate lo increase market values. Ii
it could be stopped thc consurnci
would gain, il may not be practicable, however, to secure the end in
view by either executive or legislative
action. Speculation in the Minneapolis or Chicago markets, or even in
those of Great Britain, raising prices
clscwlurc would raise them here
also.���Montreal Gazette.

IN Eoeliester, N.Y., there has been formed an association the object of which
is to promote ihe "Live a Little
Longer" idea. It aims to encourage men
and women to give attention to their
health, and by preventive methods to
avoid serious disease and add years of
happiness to their lives.
This idea is suited to people of all ages,
but seems particularly applicable to persons of advancing years who feel their
vitality on the wane. It i3 truly wonderful what is accomplished by Dr. Chase'fl
Nerve Pood under these circumstances.
By forming new, rich blood, and nourishing the starved, wasted nerve cells,.it
instils new life and vigor into tho vital
organs and enables them to perform their
natural functions.
This means now strength and comfort,
freedom from paiu and disease, and longer
life. This letter gives you some idea what

Tho. sudden death of the Hon,
Ralph Suiilli inukis a hii|i lliat will
not easily be filled, for he was one
of tin- foremost figures in the
Brewster cabinet, and a strong man
withal, as was evidenced bv lhe
dramatic nature <���! Iiis admission
into tlie executive. He bad wider
views llian most men in politics,
and by his decease the province hus
lost not only an able minister, but
���also one who would, in tin- ii|iiiii(in
of tunny, have been a candidate for
the premiership Itself in the near
future, li will be n very aide successor thai will be required lo take
bis place.
A Victoria despatch says thai llie
provincial executive is considering
a proposal to reduce the salaries of
cabinet ministers from ii?6ooo to
$5oiin, and members' sessional iu-
cl.mnities from Ji-'oo to $1200 or
even jjiooo, Such a step would be
only consistent wiih the reiterated
declarations of policy on the part
of the new administrators to make
both 1 uds meet by reducing expenses, No one will quarrel with
that policy if it is general and made
applicable throughout the whole
raupe of the expenditure controlled
by the government. We believe
that British Columbia pays its
cabinet ministers on a higher scale
than any other province iu Canada
There is therefore reasonable room
for pruning.
The Dominion authorities have

as well, having bound tlie wholesalers buying their products to handle sugar from noother source, and
restricting them from selling to the
retailers at less than the price determined upon from time to time by
the refinery. The wholesaler, the
retailer and the consumer have thus
been compelled to dance to the tune
set by the refinery. It has moreover been elicited that when the
stocks at the coast were much larger than the demand warranted,
carloads of sugar were sent so far
cast us Winnipeg, and actually sold ,
there at a lower price than was pre
yailiiig in Ii C. It was high time]
that the government did steo in to
protect the people, and it is a scandal that such a state of aoairs
should exist in time of war, when
our people have had to make great
sacrifices in flesh ami blood, and
in anxiety and scraping to make
both ends meet. We hope that the
firms concerned will be able to clear
themselves of this grave charge,

possible to secure iu the World's Markets. They are Government

Seeds should be purchased early as prices inevitably advance as
the Season progresses. In all probability the market will be short

The Goat Breeders
The British Columbia Goat Breed
ers' Assoaintion was duly incorporated on February 3, Almost 100
goat bleeders in the province have'
aiready joined or have signified
their intention of becoming members immediately.
The officers of tbe association
for the present year are, President,
S. Hopkins, Victoria; Vice Pres.
D, Mouat, McKay, Secretary-
Treasurer, Geo. Pilmer, Victoria,
Directors- Arthur Crowe, Victoria,
G. Cowell, Port Alberni. R. Hed-
die, R. Hed lie, Nelson; N. K. Tuu-
bridge, Penticon.
Practically every goat breeder in
the province has been circularized
in an effort to find out how many
goats there are iu British Columbia
The members are urging thai all
goats be kept in the province and
that none be sold outside its boundaries, as it is pointed out that tbe
demand within the province is much
greater than the supply and will,
in all probability continue to be so
for some years to come.

American   Paper   Puts   a   Pertinent
Question to Ils Readers
We arc horrified by the spectacle
presented in ccriain parts of Europe
by the overthrow of all the modern
safeguards that had been apparently
placed about human freedom. In
what was supposed to be one of the
most highly civilized corners of the
earth we see manhood slavery reintroduced, men, women and children
subjected to horrors that render the
first of mediaeval atrocities comparatively unimpressive. We witness lhe
light of liberty going out in Europe
and the rcaliz.ili.ui conies lo us lhat
there can conic no peace on earth
Until whatever freedom the Old
World  recently    possessed  has been
restored despite ihe might of ihose
who have oveilhiovni it.

The answer.lo all these questions,
and the sole answer to most of them,
is the British navy. Our control of
the seas is not a mere adjunct to ihe
strength of the alliance. It is its
basis. It Supports the whole edifice.
Without it all that the allies have
built up would crumble to pieces.
With il Ihey can erect tm a rock tlie
instruments of certain victory.
.And besides being thc maritime
and financial bulwark of the alliance,
Great Britain is also becoming its supreme arsenal and workshop. Already, and on an enormous scale, she
has furnished the allies with indispensable supplies, munitions, ships, coal,
clothing, and other material, To her
all who arc- fighting with her turn as
to an exliaustless treasure house, and
rarely turn in vain. Shells, field howitzers, heavy guns, grenades, machine guns, and small arms leave British ports in immense, quantities day
after day for the use of our allies.
One-third of our total production
of shell steel goes to France. That
fact alone, to those who understand
the character of lhis war, is an cpi
tome of the industrial services icn
dered by Great Britain lo the'common cause. Three-fourths of til
steel-producing districts of France
an- occupied by thc enemy, and our
ally absolutely depends on us for
commarjd of the sea to procure the
essential basis of all modern warfare.
n is the same with other metals
with copper, for instance, antimony,
lead, tin, spelter, tungsten, mercury
high-speed steel, and other less vir.il
substances.   All these we are manufacturing    in    Great Britain    or    in

All the allies, except the Rumanians,
are lighting at this moment in British-made military bools, of which wc
have turned out some 30,000,000 pairs

Hour, 230,000,000 pounds of crackers,
ind at least 200,000,000 pounds of
Tommy Atktn's delight���I mean, of
course, jam and marmalade.
Besides this we have increased our
navy by the tonnage equivalent of between fifty and sixty super-Dreadnoughts; our merchant marine is today all but a.s large as it was at the
opening of the war, in spile of all
losses; London remains the financial
clearing house of lhe world, and the
Britisii people have brought the value
of their ordinary export trade to a figure that must soon surpass thc returns for the most prosperous years
of peace. And yet, 1 dare say, there
arc still Americans who believe that
Britisii labor has not pulled its proper weight.
But as the. climax lo all her other
achievements Great Britain has converted herself into a military power
of the first rank. After raising an
army that far outdistanced in point
of numbers any army ever raised on
the voluntary system, she has thrown
aside the prejudices of centuries and
imposed universal military service on
all her men between the ages of
eighteen and forty-one. Five million
men enlisted in the army from Ihe
British Isles before conscription
came into force. By lhc lime the war
is over at least twelve per cent, ol
the population will have served with
the colors.
And this new army, drawn from
every class and profession and trade
in thc United Kingdom, has shown
during the last five months on the
Sointnc, in what is by far the greatest battle of this or any other war,
that they can beat lhc Germans al
their own game. The troops that
could carry such positions as Fli-
court, Contalmaison and Thicpval can
carry anything, and the Germans
know it. Wc have developed the
scheme of attack which lhcy Ittcmpt-
ed at Verdun, and we have turned il
against themselves on a far bigger
scale, with a far heavier weight of
men and melal behind it and with
far greater results.
Since tlie battle of the Somme began ovcr 700,000 of the enemy have
been put out of action, and whal lias
happened on the Somme is a mere
joke to what is coining. Wc can
continue it indefinitely; wc can repeat it in other sectors when the
right moment strikes. Combined with
the stranglehold which our fleets
maintain on lhc arteries of German
life, our armies in France and Flanders, packed up by a commissariat,
medical- transport, supply and repairing organization lhat "is the lasl
word in military efficiency, are a guarantee of victory as good as any nation could desire.
The world did not know, Germany
certainly did not know, 1 am not sure
that we even- knew ourselves, of whal
Great Britain was capable when* all
her resources of character and material might were extended to the
uttermost. But wc know now; the
measure has been taken; a great crisis
has supplied the test, and tiie nation
which Germany affected* to despise
has become the chief instrument of
that downfall which the coming year
wiil assuredly register.

Testing Prussia's
War Theory
Teutons Now Learning What n War
of Nations Really Means
"The plain facl is that thc theory
of war, having been perfected in Germany about a century ago, is now for
the lirsl time being put to lhe lest
of experience on an adequate and
really instructive scale. They were
great logicians, were those I'm
theorists. They saw, what was u
festly inn-, that it was absurd for a
nation to go to war with less than
its whole strength. Small professional armies had a certain excuse in the
days when transport was an enormous difficulty, but when the progress of engineering made it possible
to feed huge hosts aud to convey immense quantities of munitions, il
was evident that the nation whicfl
went to war wilhoui being able and
willing lo throw all ils weight inlo
tlie struggle was playing a fool's part.
. . . Logic decreed thai il should
be a case of all or none; and in a
worltl in which only a few advanced
thinkers (Kant among lhe number)
had ever doubted ihe eternal nects-
sity of war, 'all' was lhe onlj possible
answer. To thc nation which lirst
acted up lo lhis conception, ami did
so with thoroughness and diligence,
great successes were assured. . . .
But all the world had by this lime
recognized llle cogency of the Prussian logic, and had seen that two
(and even more) could play at lhc
game of organizing so as to bring all
llieir strength io bear. The result is
lhat Prussia, confronted by half a dozen converts to her own creed, is now
learning whai a war ol 'nalio: in
arms' really means."���-William

United Farmers of B. C.
A step of tho greatest importance
in the agricultulriil history of the
province was taken hist week in
Victoria when the New Parmer's
Tluion was successfully "launched
under the title of the''United
Farmers of British Columbia."
The convention was attended br
some 2tiodelegates from nil parls
of the province ami resulted ill the
formation of a powerful organization which will, by affiliation embrace all the existing Earmers' Associations and work Independently
of Government infltience and support.
The organization will for the
present and probably permanently
have its central ollice at Victoria,
and will be governed by a Central
board composed of a president,
three vice-presidents, nud sonic ten
or twelve directors, one of whom
will be chosen from each "District
organization," The Executive will
consist of the President, Vice-Presidents and three directors elected by
the Central Hoard. Each district
organization will 'be composed of
not less tnan ten "Local Unions"
each of which will have its own officers and working organization.    *
The subscription for membership
was fixed at the small sum Jof one
dollar per annum so as to place its
privileges within the {reach "of the
humblest pre-emptor engaged in
agriculture whether in the form of
livestock, vegetable produce, poultry raising, or kindred lines,
As the revenue thus produced
will be quite inadequate to carry
ou the work the association has in
prospect, provision was made for
life members, who may qualify by
paying a lump sum of twenty-five
dollars. Many of the wealthier
farmers present at the convention'
announced their intention of contributing generously to   lhe  funds
in order to enable the Association
tn prosecute its work vigorously
from the outset,
The convention was addressed by
the lion John Oliver, Minister of
Agriculture, and by W, 1',. Scott.
Deputy Minister, both of whom
welcomed the inauguration of the
movement as one emanating from
the farmers themselves, and predicting a grent future for the fanners of 11, C, as the outcome of its
Mr. Scott undertook to circular
the existing funnel's' organizations
recommending their affiliation as
provided in its constitution with
the new association.
Such affiliation may be effected
by a subscription of SO Cents per
head of their membership.
The officers as elected by the
convention are the following;
