SPRING WlATflER"
HARD ON BABY
The Canadian spring wcalher���
one day mild and bright; thc next
raw and blustery is extremely bard
on the baby. Conditions are such
lhal the mother cannot take the litlle onc out for the fresh air so
much to be desired. Hc is confined
lo the house which is often overheated and badly ventilated. Hc
catches cold; his little stomach and
bowels become disordered and the
mother soon has a sick baby lo
look afler. To prevent tllis an occasional dose of Baby's Own 'Tablets
should bc given. They regulate the
stomach and bowels, thus preventing or curing colds, simple fevers,
colic or any oilier of llic many minor ailments of childhood, The Tabid-; are sold by medicine dealers or
by mail al 25 cents a Iionc from The
Dr. William-' Medicine Co., Brock-
villc, Out.
In the Absence of Clergy
Some lime ago a dinner was given
in Ness' York al which a well-known
actor, who is something of a freethinker along theological lines, sat
at the guest table. When the hour
for starting llic feast arrived lhc
loastniastcr, a very religion.* man,
discovered lliat no minister of the
Gospel was present, though several
had been invited. In litis emergency In turned to lhc actor and
asked  Iiini  to  say  grace.
The. aclor rose, bowed his head,
ruul iu lhc midst of a deep hush said
fervently:
"Tliere being no .clergyman present, let US thank God!" -Saturday

Good Night! ,
The young man and the girl were
standing outside thc front door, having a final chat. He', was leaning
against thc door post, talking in low
tones. Presently the young lady
looked round to discover her father
in the doorway, clad in a dressing

"Why, father, whal in thc world

German Sword
Cannot Bring Peace
No World Peace Can Ever Be Assured Through Dominant
Germany
'.I lie coming world peace, thc ex-
tiltaul kaiser is reported as saying in
a message from the battle front, will
be assured "through the German
sword." It is inconceivable thai be
accurately forecasts the future. It
should be said in whal is, perhaps,
llic darkest hour of lhc war, that no
world peace can ever, by any possible decree of fate, bc assured by lhc
German sword. The worst might
happen on llic continent, aud the
broken Brilish army be driven inlo
its boats opt of France, retiring to
its island 'fortress, and slill America
and Great Britain could continue a
maritime war against Germany for
years. It was done in thc case of
Napoleon nnd it is not apparent lhat

pntinuous and
monotonous Work
-most trying on
the Nerves
|0ING the same thing, in the same way,
day after day and week after week,
means destruction to the nerve cells and collapse of
the nervous system of the human body.
Whether in the munition factory or in the home, in the store or
5n the office, it is monotony that kills. And it is because woman's
work is more often monotonous than men's that so many women
suffer from nervous exhaustion and prostration, nervous headaches,
neuralgic pains and general run-down condition of the body.
It is easy for the doctor to say you
must have change and rest, but the
expense of living is so great at this
timo that few can afford to follow
such advice.
But there is restoration and health
awaiting you in the use of Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food. This great reconstructive treatment cures by supplying the elements which Nature
uses in the formation of new, rich
blood and tho creation of new nerve
force.
If you are a regular reader of this
paper you will find cures reported
almost daily, and no matter where
you live you will find people who will
tell you with enthusiasm of the benefits obtained by using this great food
cure.

J l looked somewhat bulkier and
lu- examined it carefully, but the cover did not seem to have been removed, it could not have been replaced
by another, because the original address was there and lie knew Carmen's band; then there was a seal,
which he did not think could have
becen tampered with. Besides, tlu;
man had only had it for a minute
or two, and if he lia.l opened il,
would probably have taken something out instead of putting something in. Foster decided that hc
was mistaken about ils size and returned it to Iiis pocket.
Then he wanted a cigarette and
took out the case hc had KOt in the
fur coat. Since he had left thc coat
in Montreal, the case was the only
record of Iiis adventure on the train
and he wondered whether he would
ever bc able to restore it to its
owner and speculated languidly
about thc man. As the latin" knew
llis name, it was strange lhat he had
not communicated wilh him at   thc
tier's Crossing," lie .said.
Graham glanced at lhc packel
ratreliasly, as if he did not consider
il of much importance, and Foster
felt puzzled, The fellow was not as
old as Carmen's father, but Foster
thought there was nothing about
him thai would attract a girl used to
admiration, as Carmen was. He was
certainly not handsome and had, on
lhc whole, ;i commonplace look,
while he was obviously in a small
way of business.
"Thank you," lie said, "li seems
y.m have In en lo Edinburgh. We
bail a branch ihere, bin closed ii rc-
ccnlly. .Newcastle hasmiorc facilities for importing our goods. I'm
afraid von havc been put to some
trouble."
Foster  replied  lhal    he    did    nol
mind  tliis,  since  he    luul    promised
Miss Austin to 'bring the packel and
sin- was a friend of Iiis, but although
he studied the man's face, saw liol'h-
ing to indicate that he was interested.
'.'Are you slaying here?" he asked,
and when  Foster lold him that    he
Ss.     was goiiiK back as soon as lie could,
\^ ! resumed I  "If you  had been staying,
ri  would have been glad to lake you
I about the town; but, afi'cr all, there's
j nothing much in the way of amusement going ou.    I  might arrange to
.meet you in the afternoon, but must
now finish sonic letters for the Continental mail."
Foster, who said lie could not wail,
vent out, feeling that thc other was
pleased to get rid of him.    Graham
was  obviously  a  small  importer    of
I provisions, and he could not see why
I the  girl  in  Edinburgh  had    warned
! him  to post the packet.     Carmen's
! reason for sending such a man something  she  valued  was  impossible  to
discern.
This, however, was not Foster's
business, and alter lunch be caught
a train to Hexham, and, finding hc
could get no farther, spent the night
in the old border town.

An Offer of Help
It rained and the light was going
when Foster sat in a window scat of
the. library at lhc Garth. Hc was
alone, but did not mind this. Thc
Fcalhcrstoncs treated him as one of
the family; he was free to do what
he liked, and Alice, who had talked
to him for half an hour, had just
gone away. Lighting a cigarette, he
mused and looked about.
Outside, the lirs rose, black and
dripping, above the wet drive. Between their trunks he saw the river,
stained with peat, brawling among
the slones, and llic streaks of foam
that stretched across a coffee-colored pool. Then a few boggy fields
ran back into thc mist that Iiuryg
about the bills. A red fire threw a
soft  plow  about  the    library.      The

GERMANY HAD THE OPPORTUNITY
FOR PRESERVING WORLD PEACE
MORE REVELATIONS CONCERNING ENEMY'S GUILT
Memorandum of 1'iince Lichntfwsky Shows That Germany Could
Have Reached Agreement Acceptable lo Great Ihiiaii!,
But Balked Efforts of Ambassador to London
Further sections of .lln-- urem-or-an--
iluin which Prince Lichn.ov.sky, German ambassador at London when the
war began, wrote foi; the purpose of
justifying his position    to   personal
friends, are   published   by Tlie Poli-
likcn, organ of the Extreme Left o
the Socialists.    In tlie preceding scc
lions  Prince  Liclinowsky    describe
his efforts to secure a better under
standing between Germany and Brit- j
ain after his appointment as ambassador to London in 1912, and    how
they were thwarted because    of the
persistence of the    German '-foreign
ollice in backing   up   llic   Austrian j
view on   Eastern  questions,  the  foi- J
lowing out  nf v.iiirii lie felt would
lead to a collision wit-h Russia and a
world war.
The new portions oi the memorandum deal ]iriuei|>;ij!;>- with the negotiations over the Anglo-German
colonial treaty. Prince Liclinowsky
remarks at the out*, t that the good
relations lie had established in Loudon had effected a noticeable improvement in Germany's relations
with Britain. Sir Edward Grey, the
llritish foreign minister, devoted
himself honestly to this rapprochement, says the prince, and his intentions to tliis end were especially
noticeable as regarded the colonial
trcaly and the llagilr.il railway.
In 1898, continues Prince Liclinowsky, t.'otini von Hatzfcldt-Wild-

i |    'I Ire    Anglo-German    negotiations,
which began before Prince Liclinowsky's arrival, were intended to secure the revision and improvement
of the trcaly of 1898, and, thanks to
the accommodating altitude of the
Jliili-rli government, Prince Licit:
nowsky says lie was able to give the
new treaty a form conforming to
German wishes and interests.
"Sir Edward Grey,'! continues
Prince Liclinowsky, "wished to show
us good-will, and also in the main
to further our colonial development,
while Gnat Britain also wished to
lead llic German development of
power from llic A'orlli Sea and Western Europe to the Atlantic and
Africa, 'We do uot grudge Germany
her colonial development,' a member
of llic cabinet said to me."
Prince Liclinowsky goes ou lo say
that the trcaly was practically in
readiness in 1913, but that "new difficulties arose to prevent ils signing,
and only a year laler, shortly before
the outbreak of tlie war, could I receive authority to conclude the
trcaly, It was, liow ever," hc adds,
"never signed."
".Sir Edward Grey would only sign
it on condition that    the treaty    be
published, together with the 1898 and
1899 treaties, England has no secret
treaties, and it was contrary to thej
existing principles to keep the treaty |
secret.   Sir Edward could    therefore
conclude no treaty  without publishing   it,   but    the   German    foreign
office,   where   my successes in London had created increasing distrust,!
stated that    ihe    publication    would r
jeopardize German interests   in   the [
colonies, where, moreover, tlie Portuguese would give us no more    concessions.    The treaty, which offered
us   exceptional    advantages,   consequently fell tlirougli.    This    was another war sacrifiec."
Engineering* Wonder
Suspension Bridge Built of Wire in
British Columbia Has
Collapsed
\\ lien the suspension bridge that
Indians of Hagiglct built across
the Bulkley Canyon in Northwestern
British Columbia recently collapsed
the world lost one of its engineering
wonders. Willi only tlie tools of thc
wilderness, with no knowledge of llie
laws of stress, vibration, tensile
strength and carrying load of various materials, llie red men succeeded
after two failures in throwing across
the canyon al a height of one hundred feet a suspension bridge one
hundred and forty-six feet long and
ten feci wide.
A little while before lhc first successful Atlantic cable was
laid an American telegraph
company conceived thc brilliant scheme of connecting North
America by wire with Europe. The
plan was lo run a line llirougli the
wilderness at the extreme end of
North America, then over lhc very
narrow strip of writer of Bering
Strait to land in Siberia. Thence the
wire would connect with all lire capitals of Europe. Thc company started work aud at immense expense carried a great deal of material into the
1 lie Canadian wilderness. While the
work was slill proceeding, however,
lhc unbelievable, happened; tlie Atlantic cable was successfully placed
across the bottom of lhc ocean. That
put an ciul to work on thc overland
project, and greal piles of wire wcrc
abandoned in the wilderness because
of the prohibitive cost of taking it
out.
Tliis wire was llu- only while
mail's material lhat thc Indians Ol
Hagilget used in making llieir remarkable suspension bridge. Their
chief reliance was the timber from
the surrounding forests. No riail
was to lie found in ils entire length;
:the joints were made by dovetailing
and by burning holes llirougli the
logs   and   fastening    llicni     together
I with     strong     handmade     wooden
| spikes. .
i When lhc Klondike rush occurred
the bridge helped ninny gob! seekers
ovcr tbe difficult  canyon,  for it lav
| on the route that a great many men
.took going into the mines.
Ils collapse was owing to neglect,
j for,  although  several    requests    had
I been made for a grant to preserve it,
'nothing hail been done. Tliis neglect
is probably explained by the fact
that thc bridge was no longer nccd-
i d commercially, for not long ago
an English firm of bridge builders
Spanned the canyon with lhe latest
type of modern suspension bridge.
'ihc new- structure, one of the highest of its kind on the North American continent, is two hundred and
fifty feet above lhc river. It is four
hundred and fifty-one feet long and
nine feet wide, and is capable of sustaining a moving load of eighteen
thousand pounds. A photograph
shows lhc two bridges, a striking
contrast, now unfortunately lost    to
view forever.

Members of National Seamen's Union Have No Use for Pirates
The attiludc of British sailors with
regard to Germany's submarine campaign was shown by ,1. Havclock
Wilson, general secretary of the national seamen's union, wlio, speaking
al a meeting of sailors at Cardiff,
Wales, asked those who had been
torpedoed to stand up. Chic hundred
and seventeen men of thc 300 present arose Mr. Wilson then remarked! "Von men who arc standing have

to shake hands with the Germans
will remain standing."

Violence and Outrages Due to Ignorance of the People
If it wcrc possible that a people
liroiigbt up under an intolerant and
arbitrary system could subvert that
system without acts of cruelty and
folly, half the objections to despotic
power would be removed. Wc deplore the outrages which accompany
revolutions. Hut llic more violent
llic outrages, the more assured we
feel that a revolution was necessary.
The violence of these outrages will
always bc proportioned to the ferocity and ignorance of the people and
will bc proportioned to the oppression and degradation under wliicli
they have been compelled to live, ll
is the character of such revolutions
that wc always sec the worst of them
at first. Tili men have been sonic
time free, they know not liow to use
llieir freedom, The final nnd permanent fruits ol' liberty are wisdom,
moderation, and mercy, lis immediate effects an- often atrocious
crimes, conflicting errors, skepticism
ou points llie most clear, dogmatism
on points tin- most mysterious, li is
just at this crisis that its enemies
love lo exhibit il. Tliere is only one
cure for the evils wliicli newly-acquired freedom produces; and thai
cure is freedom. The reader who has
got thus far may be tempted to exclaim: "What twaddle!" But what
he has been reading was written by
Macaiilay in 18-'.'. W'e admit, however, thai it seems to havc its application to events in Russia in 1918.���

seems thai the alliance between Kussia ami France was an artificial alliance, and lhal llie natural fate of the
Russian people was that of subserviency to Germany. Prussia knows
Russia better than -any other country
knows her. The French were strangers in the alliance, however honestly
Russian statesmen strove lo fulfill
tlie terms of the pact. There is a
common Russian saying, "'flu:
money comes from France, but the
brains come from Germany."
lu Russia v.c arc watching tlie last
act of the drama; we sec military
penetration following tlie peaceful
penetration that was going on even
before lhc birth of llie German empire. Attention is called to this fact
by K. Bcrcovici in the New York
Sun, who seems to know ,-isjnuch
about foreign affairs as his name implies, lie quotes from C. L. Schni-
zier, who wrote a history of Russia
in 18'7, in which bc says with simple Teutonic modesty: "Russia contains within her a nation of Germans, who iu all respects possess an
unquestioned superiority over tlie
Russians. -Am! it is from tlicm, tlie
Germans', that she draws tlie most
distinguished -of her statesmen, her
politicians and lier warriors. And
why is' it thai these are, comparatively speaking', so superior to her
Russian subjects? Precisely because
itS iiieri they were bom Germans;
their intelligence have been cultivated, havc been developed in thr*
more genial soil of a richer, a more
elevated, a more enlightened civilization."   i Hd kultur again.
liul there is tini li in tin- boasting,
and in the old saying about the
brains coming from Germany. Tlie
penetration of -Russia by Prussia
wliicli bas been going ou for generations with tin- approval, if not with
the suggestion, oi' ihc German government, has bad the tendency of
putting Russian business in llic hands
of Germans. 'I'hey have been tin-
lawyers, the professors, the "intellectuals" of the country, li is said tbat
iu lln: eyes of tlie ignorant Russian
peasant every German is ;t doctor,
and tliere is a slory lo lhe ell'ccl that
when the German doctor died in a
certain village iin- populace insisted
lhat Iiis German servant should carry on the business, and beat him until he consented lo do SO. The higher educational standards in Germany
enabled the German professional man
to outstrip their Russian competitors
and just a.s oilier counlries, against
their will perhaps, have become resigned lo see the banking business
largely in the hands of Jews, SO the
Russians have become accustomed
to seeing Germans controlling the
commerce of the country and becoming lenders ill other walks of life.
In Lithuania the richest tradesmen are Germans. The Baltic provinces have been thoroughly Germanized, and the aristocracy is almost wholly German. Poland, Finland and Cotirland acknowledged
German predominance long before
the evenis of llie past few months.
It is true, as lhc historian boasted,
that Russia has been indebted to
Germany for many of the men who
havc directed her public affairs. Russia's greatest oppressors���llulircn,
Pahlcn, Benckendorff, Ilcrg, von
Flehvc, Minn, Riman, Kaulbars and
Slcurnier havc been Germans; and al
the head of the Russian army have
been such Teutons as Stakelbcrgi
Stark, Stosscl,  Rcitncnkampf,   Grip-
pcnbeig and Grancr. In many cases
where tlie Germanic name of a particular Russian docs not explain his
pro-Germanism his affection for Germany was derived from a German
mother, or perhaps from a handsome
German bribe.
Germany bas always formed a
barrier between Russia and the. outside world. Wc have been obliged
to see Russia llirougli her eyes, and
her desire was lo show Russia to
llic worst advantage in order that
tin- Russians might drink in thc
belief that Germany alone understood and loved lier. The Jewish
massacres were approved by Germany witli this end in view. Germany had also the motive of particular hatred for lhe Jews because
they promised eventually lo open
the eyes of thc Russians to the fact
that lhcy were being exploited by
Germany, German agents wcrc also
active in promoting revolutionary uprisings and in any other enterprise
which would weaken the strength of
the nation, lower it in the estimation
of tlie outside world and make its
final downfall more certain. For
generations she continued to "bear"
the stock of the Rear in order that
at thc meeting of the creditors she
could buy in lhc bide at her own
figure She appears to have succeeded, although her present title is
none belter than that of a man who
buys properly at a tax sale.���Toronto Mail and Empire.

Russian Crazy-Quilt Farms
Peasants Always Claimed the  Land
As Their Own
Russian life has always been patriarchal, and the villagers live as onc
great family. The idea of the undivided ownership of land tlates back
almost a thousand years. Even when
lield as serfs, lhc peasants always
claimed lhc land as their own. "We
arc yours," they said, "but Ihc land
is ours." When the peasants were
freed, sections of laud were given to
each village. Tliis is parceled out lo
the various families every few years
by the village elders. If the land is
of unequal fertility, each family is
given au allotment of both the best
and the poorest soil, iu the effort
lo administer absolute impartiality.
As a result the land i.s frequently divided into very narrow strips. Tlicy
may be as wide as fifty yards, but I
have seen many not more than three
yards wide.

Let Coal Pay for Tunnel
It lias been proposed to construct
a railway tunnel under the l-'irlh of
Forth, Scotland, paralleling the famous bridge now spanning that body
of water, and lo pay for the tunnel
by making it largely a coal mining
proposition. Mining engineers point
out that coal is now being mined on
both sides of lhc firth from the same
seams and lhat much of lhis excavating is done under water. At litis
point the estuary is only about two
miles wide and it is contended that
a continuous passage could be made
beneath it by properly co-ordinating
the mining operation. In this way,
what would otherwise probably
prove too costly an improvement,
could bc made with profit.���From

���Among the many friends

Collin, a well-known resident of this
place. "I received great relief from

she gives for always recommending

and she adds that a great deal of her
health and vigor is due to the help
she got from the great Canadian
kidney remedy.
Dodd's Kidney Pills hold their
popularity not because of thc promises tlicy make, but because of lhc
good tlicy do. They are no cure-all.
Tlicy are purely and simply a kidney remedy. The reason tlicy arc
credited with' cures of rheumatism,
heart disease, dropsy, etc., is because all these diseases arc caused
by sick kidneys. Cure the kidneys,
and lhc cause of the disease is removed.

HOW TO GROW SUGAR ON A
VACANT LOT.
Ea. '���'
'*_���_*!___ ttfvi*^ "'-'' "'i* '���'__"
Mr Edison's
Secret
''One of the most effective ways to
make up the sugar shortage is to',
grow sugar beets ln the home gar
den/'asserts Prof. P. G. Holden, world!
famous agrlculurallst. "Sugar belets I
can be grown pretty generally ln all,
of this country. There are few more
profitable or Important crops at the
present time.
"A small plot of ground In the back
lot will grow enough beets to provide
an average family with sugar aud syrup for a whole year. The percentage
of sugar ln beets is surprisingly large
and any housewife, boy or girl can
exract the sugar with little trouble
and with such utensils as are found ln
every home.
"Soak the beets ln cold water to
make them crisp and brittle. Remove
the dirt. Peel and cut off the crown
slice the beets thin or grate them. Put
in real hot water, not boiling, and let
stand about thirty minutes then strain
oft teh water through a cheesecloth,
and boil the llpuld to a proper consistency for syrup. While this boiling
is taking place, constantly removve
the scum which rises to the top.
"This syrup should be canned or
bottled while hot, tightly sealed and
corked to prevent moulding. If made
for sugar let it stand in an open vessel. Fifty pounds oftVeets will make:
about a gallon of syrup.
Sugar beets are sown and cultivated like the ordinary.garden beet, raised by gardeners. They require no
more care or attention.
AN  APPEAL  TO   FARMERS.
I Department   of   Agriculture      Vic-
I    torla,  B.C.,  Mayl9, * 1918.
| By mutual arrangement between
the Dominion  Census  and  statistics
I office, and the British Columbia department of Agriculture, for the col-
I lection of agricultural statistics, card
\ schedules calling for a return of crop
areas and live stock on farms as on
June 15th 1918, are being mailed to
all farmers whose names appear as
such on the Provincial voters lists, as
revised in 1917.
i Last year the Provinces of Quebec
Saskatchewan, Alberta and British
Columbia adopted this plan wit"i such
success that this year all the other
provinces ln the Dominion havve cooperated.
In appealing to farmers for their
hearty co-operation, by filling in and
returning the cards sent out It Is unnecessary to point out the extreme
shortage of food products in our allied countries as aresult of the present war, but it is desired to emphasize the importance of the Oovvern-
ments having as accurate knowledge
of conditions and supply as possible,
in order to accomplish proper distribution. Compiled results will guide
farmers in marketing their products
and making future arrangements.
The satisfactory response from farmers in 1807, when 4C per cent, of the
farms in this province were reported
upon, was perhaps due in no small
measure to the spirit of patriotism
applied in a practical sense. It is
hoped that this same spirit will be
even more manifest ln June 1918, and
i when every   farmer in 1he Province
I will send In a report.
|    Your individual    return is impera-^
, tive towards the most reliable results, |
I and the sucess of the system now
adopted. It is by far the most eco-
nomlal plan and one which can be
used every year.
I Falling in such a plan where the
farmers' co-operation Is necessary, in
order that the collection of statistics
bo continued, the Dominion would
then require to resort to a census ns
taken by personal vUlt, but which
would at. the present time cost over
.$1,250,000. This would at.once prove
unpopular with om- tax payers, ami
would he un unnecessary drain on the
public funds.
j Fanners are assured that, their, individual reports will be I rented ns
strictly confidential nnd will  not in
I nny slinpe or manner   he   used ns n
lmsis  f"r  taxation or oilier liability.
