Farmer Living   Near   Medicine    Hal
to   Hay  J'enalty  for  Crime
After one of the mosl sensational
as well as one- of lhc longest criminal trials ever roiuhlctcd in a Canadian court, Adam Ncigel, a farmer
living near Medicine Hat was convicted of the murder of his uifu
Clara Ncigel by poisoning ami he
wan sentenced by Mr, Justice Hynd-
inau to In- hanged on March 22.
The evidence against Nclgcl was
wholly circumstantial, there being no
direct proof lhat he had any poison
or thai he administered it to bis
wifc, Thc circumstances proven In
evidence showed that lie must have
given In r tin strychnine In a glass
of whiskey which Ncigel admitted
giving her. Witnesses who saw her
die described symptoms thai corresponded almost identically with those
of strychnine poisoning. Other wit-
nesses swore that Ncigel told them
he had poisoned his wife and the
chemical analysis of the stomach
showed the presence of strychnine.
| Coupled with these facts was the
evidence of witnesses thai Nelgel
had heen haling illicit relations with
another woman, who it happened
was one. of the witnesses who saw-
Clara jfeigel die. The defence held
lhat she swore as she did against
Ncigel to get revenge on him _ for
telling her husband of the relations
tha had existed between them.
The jury did nol believe the story
of conspiracy and found thai lhe
circumstances {.roved lhat Ncigel
was guilty.

Study the Inside Nerves
To Learn the Cause of
WITH the brain as its centre,
the nervous system reaches
out to every organ of the
human body. From the spinal
column and from the various nerve
centres the thread-like nerve fibres
find their way to every nook and
corner of the body, controlling all
movements and action, and making
a living being of the mass of flesh
and bone.
Without the nerve force which
is manufactured in the brain there
could be no beating of the heart, no
breathing of the lungs, no digestion, no activity, no life.
It is only when you think of the
nervous system in this way that
you begin to realize its true
importance and to appreciate the
far-reaching effects of any derangement of the nerves. Any break in
this connection with the brain, or
any pressure on the nerve fibres to
interfere with the transmission of
nervous energy, means helplessness
or paralysis of the part affected.
It may be the loss of power to use

A Vessel That Stalks the  Noiseless U-Boats By a Wondcrfu
Listening Device, and Shoots Torpedoes nt its Prey on the
Principle of a Shot Gun
Have they stopepd the submarines)
User your own judgment, but eon-
��l.er carefully thc significant dc-
relopmcnts of tho last few weeks.
Por they arc the most significant
of the war since the submarine campaign was begun by the Germans.
First���the fads: the reported sinkings two weeks ago wen- the lowest,
nnly one ship ol considerable bizc
being torpedoed.
Second���Arthur Pollen, thc foremost writer-expert on naval affairs,
has changed over completely on his
views of the possibility of the submarine campaign.   Hitherto he   had
refused   to   believe   that   any   weapon
could bo devised bv which the   submarine could be combatted.
Third���Marlcy I-'. Hay of the Den
ny-Hay Submarine company oi
Dumbarton, Scotland, speaking last
week before his fellow members of
the American Society of Naval Architects and Marine l.nglnccrs, told
for the lirst time of lhe eonira-sub-
marinc thai stalks ihc noiseless U-
boat by a wonderful listening device ami shoots many torpedoes at
its prey simultaneously on the pnn
ciplc of a shotgun.
These are lln- developments in rr
nutshell. All three may be. unrelated
bnl the probabilities arc that thev
arc closely related one to thc oilier.
VVe arc safe in assuming thai lhe re
port of the sinkings is correct! wi
know lhat Arthur Pollen would nol.
be converted to optimism without actual knowledge of a new factor in the
bands of ihe British navy, and we.
have only the revelation of lhc contra-Submarine, but also a wealth of
first band knowledge on U-boats that
gives an entirely new poinl of vi"iv
of the situation in lhe. speech oi Mr.
"An up-to-date German submarine
Is perferr'v bal""ced," said 'he
Scotch builder. "The vessel can remain stationary with only lhc tops

"At first, little success was had in
combatting submarines. Later developments, however, made il possible lo bear even an invisibV submarine and lo approximate il< direction-
"Contra-submaritics of this kind,
however, do all their work submerg

with 12-inch torpedoes,
"Many should bc fired at once on
the principle of a shotgun, since a

"These groups of tubes may be fit

Ini n "getting" ihc U-boats from
nub-surface boats, and Ihe much
prcss-agciilcd "depth bomb" has been
declared to be Impracticable. Nor is
there anv reason to believe thai Germany is'calling in her submarines for
any particular purpose.
Pulling two and two together,
many an expert has learned al Llic
loss of his reputation, docs not always make four in this war. _ And jt
is true that Mr. Hay qualifies his
revelation of the contra-submarine
with "tin- clement of chance." But
he has revived nn idea consigned to
limbo long ago by thc British navy
I���that a submarine can liglit a submarine,
! Less than two weeks ago Simon
| Lake of Bridgeport! Conn., made the
i unqualified statcmcnl that it was absolutely impossible to heat -.he sub-
i marine, What lhc American expert
! will have to say after a conference
with Mr. Hay���no vishnur submarine
expert leaves America without gel-
|lliig the benefit of Mr. Lake's knowl-
' edsre���will be Interesting.
Mr. Hav docs not imply; he states
that the British navy is using    submarine  against  submarine.  And note
lhis words "later developments   make
' il possible  to bear even uu invisible
submarine and approximate ils direction."    And note  thc lowered number of sinkings.   The conlra-suomar-
inc and ils shotgun    torpedo    lubes
cannot help but lake on the appear,
aucc of being thc cause.
i    But look upon  lhc  submarine  situation in  il.e  light of  the information tbat Mr. Hay went on to shed:
i    "l talked personally with Vou Tir-
���piiy. in  1911."  the    builder declared.
"The admiral then   to'd me that   he
considered submarines in the experimental stairc. of doubtful, utihty, and
thai the German government was not
lit! all convinced tha Ihey would form
an essential    or conspicuous part of
i future naval campaigns.

"He was not camouflaging, for at
tlie time it was a well known fact
that as far as submarines were concerned Germany was a third class
power. When the war began Germany had only 25 submarines in
commission and only a half dozen

pit��� explained apologetically that
explained almost apologetically that
they had been buill for experimental
"Considering her limitations," Mr,
Hay declares, "Germany could .inly
have had 20(1 submarines in commission last May. If all her public and
private shipyards nre being given exclusively to the building of submarines Germany can only build 100
submarines every six months. Mosl
of these have been 800 to 1,000 tons
displacement. Several groups of 1,-
500 Ions displacement have also been
commissioned] and a flotilla of cifrht
so-called submarine cruisers of .,800
ions displacement,
"Early in the war, the methods nl
defence against submarines were nets
with tell-tale devices and high speed
patrol launches armed with two-Inch
and three inch guns. The Jcnlfc
edges and net cutlers were put on
the submarines by Germany and
ih, i weri armed ivith four-inch guns
to outrange thc patrol boats. The
latest German submarines have six-
inch guns and arc formidable opponents to a destroyer, On the latest
submarines the periscopes arc sometimes 10 metres high to reduce dangers from ramming.
"Earl, in the war, Germany found
tbat sinking merchantmen with 18-
inch or 20-inch torpedoes was expensive and Inconvenient, Now a 1-1-
ilich  torpedo is Used."

Brilish authority spoken so frankly
and clearly on the submarine question, His statements were a decided
addition to knowledge on the subject.

she proclaims through Secretary Balfour in thc commons that the foremost of these aims to which she isl
irrevocably committed is that Eur-
_pc shall be free "irom the pcrpct-.
uai menace of thc military party in
Germany." Great Britain simply reconsecrates herself to ihc business of
overpowering lhe military madmen;
what sort of strait-jacket to fit on
them when thev are laid by thc beds
is matter (or decision after thev are
bound and gauged. Grent Briiain
knows that this is a phvsical, not a
vocal or n mental problem to be
discussed in a peace conference.

War Service ��f
The Boy Scouts
Covering a Very   Wide   Range   of
An attractive badge in red and
gold cloth has been authorized by the
Boy Scouts association for presentation to all Scouls performing eighty-
four hours' voluntary service in aid
of thc military ami other public auiliorities, Red Cross and other patriotic work connected with the war
A separate badge is also authorized
lor those performing onc hundred
days' voluntary service of at least
two hours per day.
Seven hundred ami fifty Boy
Scouts have already qualified lor lhe
former badge and one hundred for
the latter. War service bodges have
also been issued in several Instances
to members of thc junior branch of
thc Boy Scouts' cause, known as
Wolf Cubs, between llic ages of nine
aud twelve years.
Tiie war services rendered by the
Canadian Boy Scouts cover a very
wide range of activities, including
messenger services iu aid of the military and recruiting nuthorlifes, Red
Cross and Blue Cross societies, the
picking of small fruits and other
farm labor, gathering waste paper
for '.'.tc in aid of lhc Soldiers' comforts, meeting wounded soldiers at
the ports of disembarkation and
otherwise assisting returned soldiers,
distributing and collecting national
service cards, assisting soldiers'
wives, tag day collections, etc. Early
in the war a number of Scouts also
operated search '-glits in a Canadian
shipyard during ihc construction of
several submarines.
Iii a number of cases Hoy Scouts
have refused proffered payment for
their services, preferring to have
these count onlv among the "dailv
good turns" which every member of
this world wide organization is encouraged to perform.

without exception the first comment
of a visitor from England or France
"Il is hard to believ. from the. appearance of New York that there is
ii war."
Whai arc the striking differences
between the looks of London and
I'aris and of New York that form
the basis for this comment? i.ady
Chetwynd of London, formerly Miss
Rosalind Secor of New York, ju^t ay
rived in lhis country, answers tllis
"The contrast that struck me
first," she said, "was the luxury oi
life in New York, as compared with
thc extreme simplicity of London,
What we have come to recognize as
signs of war in England arc not y< t
noticeable in New York. 1 sec men
at work in many positions which In
England are now practically Idled
with women, in order lhat nun may
be released lo serve as soldiers or in
work which women cannot undertake. How would it strike New
Yorkers to sc women .servants in
m.u's dubs in ,.nUr ih.it the number ot thc men at the front may be
increased? Yet that Is what has taken place in  London.
"Men conductors in the subway
seems strange to ine, coming direct
from England. Long ago women
took up this work in London. In
transportation women as ^ drivers
havc taken the place of men in nearly every class of work except as locomotive engineers,
"America has heard what women
arc doing in the rural districts and
in lhe munition factories. But neither America nor any other country,
outside of England itself, realizes
whal the women of that country_ arc-
doing to win thc war. To me it is
the mosl wonderful expression of the
war, and it is characteristic of it that
no onc who goes to Kngland now
could fail to notice at once. The women of Great Britain have been tnilv
mobilized for war, as completely and
practically as if lhcy were under
conscription. The force of opinion
among tllffn, that each _ should do
her part side, by side with (lie men,
lias been as compelling, one might
say, as a legal requirement would
have been. It is a spirit so strong
tbat one who hesitates because of
inconvenience or love of comfort
finds herself drawn into service
willy-nilly because of thc stand women in general havc taken on the
"It is beautiful lo scc how quietly
the women have gone about it. No
boasting, no unnecessary appeals to
bn��v men for advice, no self-seeking
for notcri.ty by leaders; Just the simple concentrated desire to help ail
they can. In their grief, too, women
have shown the same noble spirit of
self-effacement. It is the custom not
to wear black for the loss oi a loved
onc, that no private display of grief
may weaken m lhc slightcsl il e national endeavor,
"So, loo, women have overcome
any tendency to hysteria because of
the terrifying Zeppelin raids on London in the night, They have corno
to face the risk as a matter of
course. Bui it is something t!...t iri

Why the Telephone Is
Sound travels at the rate of 1,070 feet per second; the
voice when telephoning travels at the rate of 15,000 per second. Think of it! The reason sound travels faster br telephoning is because it is accelerated by electricity, not very
much, but enough for the purpose,
So you can see the telephone is thc quickest���the surest
to send, the quickest to reach the ear you seek, and the easiest to bring the answer back.    From anywhere, too,

granaries. But I can, and I will

Hanna's New Year Appeal
At the . beginning of lhe New-
Year the Food Controller appeals
loall public 'spirited citizens to
study tbe facts of the world food
situation aud their own personal
responsibilities in connection with
lhe food .shortage. There i.s not
enough food in the world to go
round on the same getieroti_ scale
as before the war. "Who shall go
short?" be asks.
How It Is In Europ e
In Mr, Hoover's latest coinmuui
cation to the members of the United States Pood Administration be
says: "There is uo waste of food
ameng our Allies. There is most
drastic reduction in their consumption. There is actual privation
among their women and chi.dren,
There is starvation iu Belgium,"
He explains that every particle of
diminished consumption by the peo
pie of America is one particle more
for the soldiers, men, women, and
children of our Allies, and for the
starving people in othe"- countries.
Voluntary, individual self sacrifice
to save the world is the call to the
people of the United States and
Canada iu one of the greatest criies
of the war."

Setting a Good Example
What the C.P.R. Is Doing in Direction of Food  Conservation
Nothing that the C.P.R. has done
in lhc direction of food conservation
has resulted in so many letters of
commendation, as the footnote printed on all menu cards on C.P.R.
dining cars and hotels. This reads:
_ "lu lhe interest of food conservation, young lambs, lillle chickens,
little pigs, and their by-products arc-
no! used in lhc C.P.U. service."
The editor of a prominent milling
journal says in a leading article:
"Il must havc required some grit,
as well as a full sense of duty for
an institution which includes such
hotels and restaurants as arc found
on ihal railway, to put such a memorandum before their high-class
patrons. But it has becn done and
its mora! effect has been wider than
thc aclual wastage lhat has been
saved. Those who have read the notice have, in some cases at all events,
followed the good example of the
railway, and have given up purchasing any or lhc immature animal food.
"If the food controller could prohibit ihe sale or use of these young
animals it would bc another means
of food economy."
