Big Arms and Ammunition Concern
Builds Branch Factory in Canada
Canadian endorsement of quality la
loaded snot shells has brought the
Remington Arms Union Metallic Cartridge Company across tho border with
iho first ammunition factory to be
built in this country by United States
manufacturers to supply this market.
This big arms and ammunition concern, now nearu.g Its one hundrodth
year of business activity, has lis principal factories nt Brl lgeport, Conn.,
U.S.A., where ammunition Is made,
and at Uton, N.Y., U.S.A., the home
of modern arms malting, Up to this
year the steadily Increasing Remington business In Canada has been handled from tho home factories, but of
lute our dealers nnd sportsmen have
made the demand so strong that early
In 1913 the company's Executive Board
decided to build a branch factory ou
this sldo ot the line. Windsor, Ontario, offered advantage.! as a contral
distributing not' and as a skilled labor market and early In 1918 a factory site consisting of over one hundred acres was purchased there.
The problem then was to rush the
plant to early completion and Install
an equipment capable of producing ammunition ot the same high quality demanded In the strict 'homo factory'
inspection. Tho order was given to
spare no expense In providing for the
expeditious filling of the unusually
htavy orders of the year. A large
force of workmen was recruited and
five months from the day the first
ground was broken Windsor boasted
a strictly modern ammunition factory
equipped w'tli the latest improved machinery, a ballistic range and chronograph for testing penetration, velocity,
pattern, etc, together with powder
magazines .-.nd storage warehouses.
Builders who watched the seemingly
magical creation of the splendid plant
in all Us completeness claim that a
remarkable record was made lu the
erection and installation work.
Two railroads have built switches to
the factory door and there Is a direct
connection with the lake routes so
that evcrv facility U afforded for
prompt shipments. Deliveries of the
famous Arrow, Nit.ro Club and New
Club speed shells are already being
made from the new factory.

The  Dog  and the  Lobster
A Scotsman was strolling through
the market-place in Glasgow one city
and close at his heels followed his
faithful collie. Attracted by a fine
display of shell and othtr fish, the
Scot slopped to admire, perhaps to
purchase. The dog stood by, gently
wagging its tall, while Its master engaged the fishmonger lu conversation.
Unfortunately for the dog, its tall
dropped for a moment over a big
basketful ot fine, live lobsters. Instantly one of the largest lobsters snapped
its claws on the tail and the surprised
collie dash id off through the market
yelping its pain, while the lobster hung
on grimly, though dashed violently
from side to side.
The fishmonger for a moment was
speechless with Indignation, then,
turning to his prospective customer, he
Mon! mon! whustle to yer dog;
whustle to yer dog!
Hoots, mon, returned the oilier complacently, whustle to yer lobster!
At lit it sign of illness during the
hot weather give the little ones Baby's
Own Tablets, or in a few hours he may
be beyond cure. These Tablets will
prevent summer complair.ts if given
occasionally to the well child and will
promptly cure these troubles if they
come ou suddenly. Baby's Own Tablets should always be kept in every
home where there are young children.
There is no other medicine as good
aud the mother has tie guarantee of
a government analyst that they are
absolutely safe- The Tablets are sold
by medicine dealers or by mail at 25
cents a box from The Dr. Williams'
Medicine Co., Broekville, Ont.
I understand that there are two rival social sets in this town.
Yes. One set is composed of people who have undergone operations
for appendicitis and the others have

Advice to Farmers
Present prospects I mitosis * fair orop
ef (rain throughout the three wsslsrn
provinces, but do not point lo sny larger
yield than last year. 'I'llIs, combined
with the big sliortaie In the spring
wheat crop of the United States, and
also that ot Ki.-wico nud other European
countries, and Ihe present high juice
ot corn, all points toward a high level
of prices, and wa cannot see sny reason why prices should Ue hammered
down to the. low level of last year. We
claim Ihs right value ot 1 Northern
should not bs less than 99c: 2 C. \V.
oats, 40o; 1 N.W.r1. Flaxseed, It.50, and
3 0, W. flat-ley, DOe; basis In store Fort
William or Port Arthur, but or course,
It farmers rush their grain on thn marks! early with instructions to sell for
what it will bring, prices are bound to
be foroed tower. Any farmev who Is In
a position lo bold bis Rintrt at home
should do so. and those who are obliged
lo sell lo get custi should ship and sell
only enough to carry them ovor. If
tlie selling: ot all our grain could be
spread evenly over the whole season,
prices could easily average from lOo to
ir>o per bushel "ntaher, which would
mean an enormous extra amount of
rash brought Into Western Canada.
Last year lhe larger bulk ot our grain
was sold at ridiculously low prices-
selling down as low ss 7.1,o for I Northern; loaio for 1 N.W.O, Flaxseed: ado
for 2 C.w. Oats, nnd 41c for 3 C.W,
Barley. Since spring opened we have
sold 1 Noil hern at 100c; 1 N.W.C. Flaxseed 130c; 2 C.W. Oals nt 36c, a nil 3 C.
VV. Barley at Bio, basis In store Fort
William or Port Arthur. This easily
shows the huge loss to farmers through
marketing their grain In enormous
quantities right at the beginning of Ibe
season. There is far more reason this
year for prices of our wheat ranging
above the dollar mark lhan last year.
Once prices are forced down It ls hard
to get them to advance again until
stocks In sight are greatly reduced;
therefore, be careful not to rush your
grain forward too  fast.    Every carlot
held back helps Just that much te hol4
prices up and put them higher.
We would advise farmers thst whenever possible load your grain direst
from the waggon Into the oar. snd whe��
you send your shipping bill tt a commission agent, ilguie out Ihe situation
wsll before selling. To send instrue-
tlons to sell for whatever it will bring. ._
serves to break prices down mors il
qulokly thsn any other wav we know
of. Instruut your commission agent
that you went your grain sold at ���
certain piles snd then bold fer thai
price. If you do have to pay two or
three cents per bushel storage what of
It, bscauss you will eventually get Ihe
price you went, and besides you are
helping to hold prices up.
Ths distribution of cars should alas
be watched closely. Farmers should
get together nnd arrange lo have a representative keep careful watch on the
railway order book nnd sea that caoh
man Is allotted ears according lo the
(train Acl. That 1st what the Grain Aot
Is for aud If you do not use It, the fault
lies with yourselves,
We are grain commission merchant!
and give our undivided attention to this
business. Our experience extends
around '.'.% years, and fanners consigning grain for us to handle receive the
benont ot tills experience In tlie advlos
and Information we give thorn. We
iiavs no agents In the country, simply
because our lo per bushel commission
charges does not give us prollt enough
to permit of engaging agents at country
points, and at the same time show even
a smalt profit on the season's business.
Writs us  for our shipping Instructions and grain market advice.    Even"
If you do not ship grain for us lo handle,
write anyway.    The  Information   may
helo you to secure better net returns,
snd It may lead to bringing us some of ;
your business    the    following season, i
Wo can handle your grain right for yon I
and we know It, and we want you to l

Facts and Figures
Because a farmer keeps a herd of
dairy cows it does not necessarily follow that each one iu the herd is especially adapted for dairying. The
type nnd general appearance may be
good, the temperament and disposition
may promise fair results, but the real
value of each one is to be measured
actually and practically by just her
Individual yield not the average ot the
herd as a whole, at the end of a full
season's work.
Over and over again when dairy
farmers have checked up the production separately ol each cow there have
been found wonderful surprises and
serious disappointments. Those
good lookers have turned out lo be
poor producers; (lie despised cow of
insignificant appearance has often
proved a splendid moneymaker when
her moderate cost of feed bas been deducted from the large total yield of
milk and fat. Some cow testing figures recorded by the dairy division at
Ottawa, show great contrasts. For Instance, two cows yielding the Bame
weight of milk may differ in profit by
$25.00. The aged cow may do far
better than the five-,-jar-old. Two
mature cows In the same herd have
been known to differ in production by
eight thousand pounds ot milk. One
herd of twelve cows last year gave
thirl}-six tons of milk more than another herd of twelve. How are these
vital points to be definitely ascertained
by the practical dairyman? Such
facts are brought to light when figures
are used. It Is just as simple as A.
B.C. Keep records of individual production; it takes scarcely ten minutes
per cow per month, and i.buiulanlly
pays every dairyman.

Nero's Golden House
Dr. Fritz Weege, a young German
archaeologist, drew altentiou to the
enormous palace that was ouce erected by Nero In Home. The Italian
government, in consequence, instituted the very Interesting excavations
that are now being made lu what ls
called 'The Golden House.' This Immense palace covered an acre of
ground and was about three times the
size ot lhe present Vatican. The
Golden House, which extended from
the Palatine far up the Esqulllne, was
erected after the burning of Rome in
64. The building was afterwards converted by Nero's successors into other
edifices. Tho excavations are revealing much that Is of extraordinary Interest.

:: It Excited a Commotion, but
Did Not Go Off
"Captain," said the third officer of
the ocean liner Tartaric, saluting his
chief, "tbe  baggagetnaster reports a
bot In the bold lu which there Ib some
mechanical contrivance that ticks."
"Well, whnt of It?"
"Thero wns talk of anarchists blowing  up tho ship  before  nc  left.    I
> should' supposo that In view of such
talk It might be well to examine the
|l box with n view to discovering If li
contains nn infernal iniu'hnc."
"Where Is the box now?"
"lu tho hold."
"(Jet It up Inlo the baggage room,

j (he box.   It wns rectangular In shupc,

broad and deep.   On the cover was the
mime Ethan II. Jenkins.
"Who'd,Mr, Jenkins?" asked (he cap-
I tain.
Nobody knew.
"Scud for Ihe purser."
The purser came, nnd the captain
.asked him if thero was u passenger
| aboard of the name of Jenkins. The
purser snld there was and dispatched a
steward to look for him nnd scud him
to the baggage room. Mr. Jenkins was
�� dapper little man. who looked no
more like an anarchist tban a Hotten
"What's In the box?" asked the captain.
"Articles picked up abroad intended
as presents for my friends."
|    "ls there a clock In it?"
"Not thnt I am aware of."
All were silent, nnd the ticking wai
I distinctly heard by oil. A great change
t came aver the face of Mr. Jenkins. He
looked terror strickcu.  He seemed to be
' thlnklug hard for n few moments; tben,
thrusting his hand iuto his breast coat
I pocket, he drew out an envelope and,
Inking out a letter, read it hastily ant*
bunded It to the cnptnln. It was as
Mr. Jenkins, I am employed In the packing room of the house of Do Four Freres.
1 am a member ot an anarchist circle and
have been ordered to pack an Infernal
machine In a box to be shipped to Amerl-
j rn. Yesterday 1 placed one among articles bought by you of this house. The
Mechanism Is set to explode the bomb In
Tour days. The thought of causing ths
jestructlon of hundreds of persons has
Vailed on mo. I am horrified at what 1
have done and write tills letter that you
may avoid the consequences of my act.
Do not attempt to open the box. If you
are ot sea throw It overboard. I leave Di
Four Freres at once and cannot be found.
There was no slgunture lo the letter
nor anything by whlcb the nnarchisl
could be Identified, for It had been
' written and addressed by a typewriter.
"Why did yon not take action to gel
I'ld of the thing nt once?" Inquired the
cnptnln sternly.
"I thought It was it honx. My nephew,
,   Charlie Burns, Is nlwnys playing prnc
deal jokes on me, nnd 1 had no doubt
that tbls wns one of them."
"Heave the thing overboard atoncel"
,   cried the captain.
. ".Not on .vour life!" Interposed the
owner. "There mu inings in Trial box
which I would not tnke thousands of
dollars for. What need for hurry? The
letter says the machine is set lo Ore
the bomb In four days. This Is only
the third day."
"I don't cure If it's only the first,"
snapped tbe captain. "I'm not going to
endanger (he ship and those aboard by
carrying an Int'ei'iial machine. Take it
out nnd heave It overboard, I say."
"I protest In presence of the persons
present that If you do I'll hold, the
company for damages. There Is no necessity to aend such valuable property
to the bottom. In tbe first place, aa
you already know, the machine Is set
to go off lu four days from the date It
was packed. It was packed the day
we sailed; therefore It will not explode till we are near the American
coast. I'm not sure it will explode ut
all. It may bo that it's u Joke pre
pelrated by thnt fellow Bums after all.
It so ho wouldn't hesitate to put a
clock In Iho box to miiko It worse. I
wish 1 hnd him hero now to punch his
bend. This Isn't the first time he's
caused mo trouble by his pranks."
"Whnt do you propose'/" asked the
ciipiniii. "It you think the mutter a
hoax you'd bettor open tbe box and
And out whether It Is or not."
"And blow up your ship ns well as
myself If It's a reol Infernal machine?"
The caplnln evidently had not
(bought of that.   He looked confused, i
"I tell you what you do, captain,"
continued Jenkins.   "Tow It."
Tho cnptnln looked relieved. He told
tho purser lo tnke down n list of the
articles In the box from the owner.
wllh tbelr values, so that in case tbe
box were lost thu amount of claim
would be limited. Rut he did not
want to have this done before getting
rid of the box. He directed one of the
crew to carry It to the upper deck,
where the lifeboats were swung on
the davits, aud put It In one of the
lockers Intended for provisions, wedging It so that It would not. slido about
with the motion of the waves. This
wns done. The boat was lowered, a
cable attached to her bow, and she
was suffered to drift a hundred yards
While this wns b*lng done the captain gave orders that what wns In
the boat, or rather what was supposed
to be in tbe boat, be confined to those
who were In the baggage room when
tbe matter was discussed. He did not
consider that n bomb n hundred yards
sway from the ship could endanger
The Tartaric sighted Fire Island on
the fourth duy out. She was twelve
knots east of Montuuk point Just before
daylight on tbe morning of Ihe fifth
day. A mnn stood on the nfter deck of
tbe ship, where tlio cable thnt lowed
the lifeboat was attached. Ho tied
loosely to tbe rope n pair of ours, which

pressure against him exerted by tbe
headway of tbo ship was so great tbat
he would net have been able to maintain his hold had it not been for this
clutch. Ily Its use he let himself be
6lowly forced backward (ill he reached
the lifeboat nnd pulled himself up by
the cable ou to Its bow.
Once In the boat be cast an eye to
the westward, where nhoue a light,
which he recognized ns one on Montuuk point. Taking from the bow the
oars bo bad sent before him, he put
them In the boat. Then he enst off
nnd wns left astern. As the dark body
of tho Tartaric greyr darker In the distance ho smiled and raised bis bnt to
"Goodby. my friends," he snld. "I
think I can now get on without your
valuable assistance."
Taking tho box from Ibo locker iu
which It had been placed, he ripped It
open with a screwdriver he drew from
his pocket, took out a clock, which he
(brew overboard, nnd a small package,
which he concealed In a pocket of his
flannel shirt. Then, beginning to shiver
with the cold, he took up the oars and

Once on term flrma, leaving bis boat
hauled up on a bench, he started Inland till he came to a town, where ho
hired n horse and buggy to carry blm
lo the northern coast of the Island.
There he chartered a motorboat to
take him across the sound to Saybrook,
where he boarded n Long Island east-
bound train for Boston. Arriving
there In the nflernoon, he purchased
slothing and, dropping into n diamond
dealer's, took from his pocket the package he hnd taken from the box supposed to contain the Infernnl machine,
unrolled It and displayed n dozen enor
mous diamonds. Berore leaving me

parted with tbe rest of his stock, realising n handsome profit between what
the stones had originally cost him at
the diamond mines and what he received for them. He hud reached the

I On the morulng of tbe day the Tartaric arrived In port nn officer announced to the cnptnln thnt the llfe-

Story of a Drsmatio Episode In Which
tho Iowa and Muaquakio Tribe*
Figured���Heroism That Won thl
Admiration of tho Enemy.
A striking story of tho courage and
self sacrifice of which the American
Indian nt his best is capable Is given
by 0. n. Mills lu tbo Des Moines Register aud Leader. It wns told to trU
white men by the famous Sac chief,
Black Hawk, who himself saw the Incident.
It ull began wltb nn unfortunate
quarrel between an Iowti und a Mus-
quaklc, In which the latter killed tbe
former and then In a moment of freu-
r.y scalped his victim. Tbo two tribes
were at pence, and this act, allowable
only iu lime of war, wns, lu Indian
eyes, an Intolerable breach of good
The Mnsqunklcs offered nil sorts ot
reparation, but tho lowits would accept nothing but lhe person of the of-
fender, to be tortured aud put to death
In propitiation of tho outraged spirit
of the dead mnn. To this the Mnsqua-
kles agreed on condition that the culprit bo given a month to fortify himself for his terrible ordeal. But Just
as the month wns nbout to expire be
fell 111 with a raging fever. In that
condition he could not be carried ucrosi
tbe prairie, hut a failure to produce
bim nt the appointed place would
arouse the suspicious and perhaps the
hostility of the Iowas.
A council was called to debate th,
matter, before which appeared Cono, l
brother of tho sick man. "There are
no squaw men In our fnmlly," be declared.   "I will go In his place."
Tbe others tried to dissuade him and
described to him the tortures he would
bare to undergo, but he Insisted upon
making the sucrlllco. Accordingly an
escort wns selected to accompany blm,
at the head of which Black Hawk,
then n young but widely respected
chief, wns placed.
"I never saw a more pathettiNscone."
said Black Hawk, "than the parting ot
Cono and his father aud mother and
other relatives. The whole tribe waa
overwhelmed with gloom."
In the middle of the afternoon the
party arrived at the Iowas' villngei
Cono bad asked that bis Identity should
not be disclosed, but one of the towns
who was present at tho time the young
Indian wns slain saw that the guilty
party was not being delivered, and
Black Hawk told Ibo whole story. Tbe
Iowas accepted It ns true nnd. after a
brief council, consented to the arrangement The death circle wns staked out
and patrolled with armed guards, and
Cono was placed In Its center, while
bis escort was entertained lu the tepee
of the chief. It wns a chill Novembel
day, and the sun was just sinking behind the cliffs of tbe Des Moines rivet.
.when the escort left the camp.
They paused on a hill about a hall
mile distant from tbe camp. Tbey
could see that the fires had becu lighted
round the death circle, and lu the bush
of the evening came the plaintive
Bound of Cono chanting his death song,
Having traveled some two hours,
they halted and mnde camp. About
midnight they heard tbe clatter ot
horses' feet, and In a moment more t
single horseman rode up. It wns Cono!
This was his remarkable story:
The fires of tho dentb circle were
burning brightly, nud the eqmtws with
their burning sticks were preparing t��
make the first attempt to extort a cry
of pain aud agony, when an old man,
the father of tbe dead Indian, raised
bis voice:
"Stop!" bo said. "Let me speak. I
am the oue thnt bas suffered. My son
was killed and scalped by n Mnsqua-
kle. I wns hungry for revenge, aud were
the oue that killed and scalped him
here I would shout wltb joy .at bis
torture. But Ihls young mnn Is brave.
Never have I seen such bravery before.
lie Is too good n man to torture and
kill. Release htm aud let blm return
to his own people."
Although the entire village a few
hours before bad been eager for revenge, there was a murmur of approval as the old man gathered his blanket
about bim and took bis sent Without
any one's making a single objection,
Cono was removed from the circle and
given food and drink. A few noun
later he was led from tbe camp, allowed to mount his own pony and depaif

Excitement Over Oil
Discovery in Alberta
Calgary, Oct. 13.���Twenty-four
hours of feverish excitement over
the oil situation is intensified by
the admission of A. W. Dingiuan,
manager of the Calgary Petroleum
Products Company, that the strike
was of much more consequence
than was first given out and that
oil exists in commercial quantities.
The oil is a very high quality, running as high as 75 per cent, gasoline.
More than one hundred men are
waiting to file claims to-day. It is
possible that only one or two
claims will be open to entry. A
stiff trade is being driven in options
on leaseholders and hundreds of
deals have been made.
The quality of the oil was, demonstrated when an automobile tank
was filled at the well and the machine driven to the city, a distance
of thirty miles, on the power furnished by the raw product.

A News item has been going the
rouhds of the press declaring that
Kaiser William has invested quite
extensively in real estate in British
Columbia, and it is intimated that
this investment has been accompanied by similar investments on the
part of other Germans who have
money to invest.    It is claimed that
these purchases are the result of the
observations of Count von Alven-
sleben who his become convinced
that Canada offers magnificent possibilities for  profitable  real  estate
, speculation.    Whether the facts are
as stated we have no means of discovering, but if they are they but
call attention to anevihfrom which
Canada has suffered ^nuch in the
past, and which is still "possible under our laws, but over which we
certainly have small reason  to congratulate oruselves.    The speculative purchase and  holding of real
estate in Canada,   particularly by
non-residents has   been   a   deadweight upon the progress in many
sections, and it is this, which more
than anything else, probably, has
been instrumental the demand for
the single tax, The Saskatchewan
Government has passed a bill which
comes into eff:ct in 1914. imposinn
a considerable surtax upon uncultivated land or land held by speculators, We think such a mesaure
especially if the tax be sufficiently
high, would prove beneficial in
every province. It is not the cultivated, but the uncultivated and idle

By Morice Gerard
Muller, seeing there was no alter
Dative, produced the key from a secret pocket deftly concealed beneath
the braid of his coat. Reluctantly
lie opened the dispatch-box. As he
did so, Murgatroyd noticed that he
was holding his left hand in a suspicious manner. There was the
point of a small nnd a very sharp stiletto sticking out from 11, which hai
doubtless lain in his pocket with the
key. The journalist had no Intention
of feeling the point of that death-dealing little Instrument. He sharply
struck with his fist on the back of
Muller's left hand. The stiletto dropped. Murgatroyd put his foot on It.
Muller turned and glared at him, as
If about to renew the personal conflict. Murgatroyd was quite composed .
I will keep that for my own, hi
snld. It will be an appropriate re-
Blinder of you.
Muller muttered a German oath between his teeth. Then ho opened
Uie dlspntch box more rapidly. His
last bolt had been shct���unsuccessfully. The box was full cf papers;
at the bottom of which were 'he Transalplan documents. Muller handed
them over without a word. Murgatroyd looked them through and saw
they were correct. A feeling of Intense satisfaction took the place of
the anxiety and suspense of the past
few weeks. Muller read It and
cursed again���more Kijdly. It recalled Murgatroyd to the res*, o" the transaction not yet completed.
The other papers must be burnt.
Not all of them? Some of them are
private to myself.
How can 1 tell whether you are
burning all or not? Either I must
look them all through and choose or
you must burn the lot.
Muller hesitated for a minute or
two. Then he threw all the contents
of the dispatch box Into the Are, stirring them with a poker while they
blazed. Murgatroyd watching them,
came to the conclusion that they were
almost all the papers Jordan had described. When only a few ashes remained, Murgatroyd said���
Now write tho address you wish
these papers lo bo sent to, Indicating
tho ones he held In his hand.
Muller wrote down the address of a

Muller sal down, wrote the p escribed words, and sinned lhe paper.
Jfurgatroyd took up his bat, stick
and gloves, and put the documents, except the iiiKt mentioned, Into his
breast-pocket, then nod-lng to Muller,
lie left ihe room. At the end of the
passage be found Inspeotor Murphy
pacing up and down.

Murgatroyd doubted it to, but did

You will see to that?
All right. I will Jog his memory If

And Inspector Murphy wns, ns usual,

A dinner pnrty consisting of men
only is not generally a very lively affair, fT itB a rule It means nn object
In view, although of course there aro
brilliant, exceptions. Parliamentary
dinners before the meeting of the
Houses arc not exceptions to the rule.
Uniformity, not diversity Is the bond
which brings and keeps the company
together, whether to attack or to defend. Mr. Thompson-Halllday, not
being as yet of Cabinet or ex-Cabinet
rank, or a prominent official, was receiving his friends In Eaton Gardens.
Covers had been laid for twenty, and
It was not until cigars and coffee had
circulated that tongues began to wag
freely, and the restraints of a function recognized In England as of solemn moment began to wear off.
Mr. Thompson-Halllday was a
short, stout mnn, well on the shady
side of forty, to whom sudden opulence had given a snobbish air of self-
satisfaction, which he would have
lacked under more trying conditions.
Good living had also begun to twinkle
out of his Btnall, quick, glancing eyes,
and to indicate itself In his face generally. All his guests were brother
members of the Commons' House of
Parliament, In sympathy generally
with his views, although not all sitting on the same side of the House.
A Government generally has to face
beside the legitimate Opposition,
whose main duty Is to oppose, the candid criticism, and often the barely-
concealed hostility of sections of Its
own suppoi.erB, whose fads have been
neglected, or whose private ambitions
have been thwarted. Mr. Thompsci-
Halllday had a certain skill In amalgamating apparently discordant elements, and using the result to serve
his own ends. He gave excellent
dinners in London; he kept open house
in the country, and his great wealth
permitted a somewhat lavish expenditure In assisting members in contesting constituencies, who would have
gone un.'.er but for bis opportune
help. Pocket boroughs disappeared
with the Reform Bill, but the machinery for influencing votes and opinions
in the House of Commons is In full
working order still. Mr. Thompson-
Halllday had carried the art of Influence to a high pitch of excellence.
He knew to a nicety where the shoe
pinched, and hastened to relieve it;
many members owed their seats to
his timely assistance. He gave them
absolute freedom, but with the understanding that when he required their
assistance it should be forthcoming.
These were not the men he had been
dining. They were his equals in money and position���In the latter at any
rate���but for all that were not Insensible to the argument of first-rate
cookery, and a cellar of wine inherited
by their host, and selected with consummate skill..
Well, Halliday, what ls to be the
outcome of this Transalplan affair?
Are you to lead .the van of opposition? It will take all the tact yon
have go*, to make your side appear
Tho speaker wns Mr. Henry Mason,
a thin man who sat on the Govern
inent side, but frequently voted with
the Opposition.
Y'our side! Our aide, you mean Mason, put in Halliday quickly. I know
you agree with mo that the Government has put Its foot In it this time.
In fact it hasn't a leg to st-iid on, to
complete the metaphor, suggested Mor-
rlarty, an Irishman who sat for an
English constituency.
Quite so. Firing won't do this
time; we must have something more
All the same, the country will look
at the whole affair suspiciously. The
average Briton thinks his country always and Inevitably In the right.
Especially when a few Blices of land
are In dispute.
I. have a very strong case, remarked
Thompson-Halladay with assurance,
and the Government a very weak one.
I am not afraid of the country
Land-grabbing more often than not
means burnt fingers, snd to my thinking the nation is sick of these trumpery disputes. I know my constituents are at the back of me In the matter. This Transalplan claim Ib sheer

lawyer, and every one knows Hanley
Is not that, anyway.
Halliday talks ns If he were Lord
Chancellor, laughed Morrlarty. Who
coached you In your law?
A belter man than coached Hanley,
What do you propose? inquired Mason.
These are the terms of lhe Amendment, and Halliday handed a paper
across the table. Tho Opposition
leaders have approved the wording
and the party will support It. to a
man. We are sure of some support

Postum comes in two forms.
Regular (must be boiled).
Instant Postum doesn't require boiling but is prepared Instantly iy stirring a level teaspoonful in an ordinary
cup of hot water, which makes It rlgit
for most persons.
A big cup requires more and some
people who like strort things put In
a large heaping spoonful and temper
it with a large supply of cream.

delivered in carload lots to the plant
and a great pipe Is dropped into the

Kings as Ornaments
When European democracy continues its process of relegating to the
position of spectacular ornaments Its
crowned heads, Interest In the. personalities of these picturesque Individuals continues to be one of the features of tho social order today, particularly on the continent.
The modem monarch has come,
more and more, to stund merely as the
symbol of the continuity of national
life, the emblem ot tlie people's distinctive nationality and sovereignty.
Kven if, in a few scattered Instances,
he pretends to regard himself as ruler by divine ught, his people ro longer look upon him as such.
iivca V. e great, Hohenzollern, William II, l.as recently publicly Insisted
I tat. his sole object as monarch has
been, and will continue to be, not thi
glorification of his dynasty, but the
welfare of the German people.
As ea.h passes off the human stage,
Ills successor, born and. reared In a
more democratic atmosphere than himself, becomes more than ever the : -
;.:'esentatio.i of his people. The rising generation of young royalties, If a
republic In form does not prevent their
actually reigning, will sit in the chairs

Extre.ne Old Age Records
The recent death of a Chinaman in
New York at the age, as he claimed, of
149 years, raises the question whether
the records of extreme old age are authentic. The cases In which men or
women have reached the cencury mark
are so numerous that there seems lo
reason for skepticism concerning
them; but the records of Thomas
Cam, aged 207; William Edwards, 168,
and Henry Jenkins, 169, are open to
the doubt that falls ou all mediaeval
statistics. The tables of life insurance companies within the next ceil
tury will probably furnish reliable da

The bard contemporary fact Is that

The long haired musican Is still with

And how matter-of-fact at 40! Browning suffered a similarly sobering and

not easy to guess whether the changing fashion set in during their middle
years, or whether advancing ag��
would have effected the same change

Work   of the   Dominion   Department
of Agriculture
The reporl of the Mlnist ��� of Agriculture for lhe year ending March 111,
1918 has been printed, It contains
In concise and readable form u rovlow
of the work carried on by the Department of Agrlcultiiro through Its several briinu \s und divisions during the
year, It concludes also the Orders In
Council that were passed affecting agriculture.
The report ls presented under five
general heads as follows: 1, General
remarks; 2, Arts and Agriculture; 3,
Patents of Invention; 4, Copyrights,
Trade Marks, Industrial Designs and
Timber Marks; 5, 1 ubllc Health.
There is also include . an appendix
having reference to Public Health, Exhibition and the Seventh International
Congress held at Home against Tuber,
Referring tc ihe trade In dairy products It Is pointed out that for the Art
time in sixty years no butter was exported to the United Kingdom, but
on the other hand more than six and
one-half million pounds were Imported
Into Canada during the year.
In the Seed Branch among other
work almost nineteen thousand samples of farm seeds were tested for
farmers and seed merchants.
The Live Stock Commissioner by
means of public Bales distributed upwards of 1,300 breeding sheep, about
one-third of which were pure-bred
rams. In the record of performance
about ono thousand cows have been
entered for test. These represent
stock of about 150 farms.
Through the Experimental Farms
system which includes the Central
Farm and fifteen branch farms and
stations an enormous amount of work
has been done. The report not only
gives one a general knowledge of its
extent but brings to light many ac
complishmenta for agriculture. In
Saskatchewan, It ls pointed out that
the spring wheat 'Marquis' yielded at
the rate of 31 bushels per acre. The
still newer Prelude wheat which rip
ens muc',\ earlier than other good sorts
was sent out for test during the year.
A much larger quantity is promised for
distribution during the coming winter.
Many other useful points are recorded
in the minister's report, copies of
which are available to those who apply for It to the Publication Branch

or ferns to last a longtime. Of
