Foiter looked up with surprise, hut
admitted that his partner might be
right. Austin was a real estate
���gent, who now and then speculated
in lumber and mineral claims. Hc
had some influence at thc Crossing
where, however, he was more feared
than liked, since he lent money and
bought up mortgages. On three or
four occasions he had been a business rival of Foster and Feather-
Stone'., and the former thought he
might not have forgiven theni for
beating him.
"It's possible," lie said thoughtfully. "But you don't imagine Daly
told liim what he knows about you?"
"I should think it most unlikely,"
Featherstone rejoined. "Daly means
to keep all hc can get for himself,
but if hc gave Austin a hint that he
tould injure me, the fellow might
be willing to help. He's pretty often
Up against us; but we'll let that go.
You're a friend of Carmen Austin's,
and as you'll meet her at the. reunion, it might be better if you didn't
lell her 1 have changed my plans. Of
Course, 1 don't mean to hint that she
knows anything about her father's
Foster laughed, lie liked Carmen
Austin and was mildly flattered by
the favor she showed him, but
thought lie knew lur well enough
not to attach unn-li importance to
this. Carmen was clever and ambitious, and would, no doubt, choose a
husband who had wealth and influence. Though very young, she was
lhe acknowledged leader of society
at the Crossing,
"you needn't he afraid of hurting my feelings,'' lie said. "To some
extent I do enjoy .Miss Austin's patronage, but 1 know my drawbacks
and don't cherish any foolish hopes.
If I did, 1 believe she'd tactfully nip
them in the bud."
"On the whole. I'm pleased to
to hear il," Featherstone replied.
"Now, if you don't mind, there's
something I want to read."
The Mill Owner
Big arc lamps flared above lhe
railroad track that crossed the yard
of the Hulton factory, but except
for a yellow glimmer from a few
upper window:;, the building rose in
a huge dark oblong against the sky.
The sharp clanging of a locomotive
hell jarred on the silence, fnr the
mill hands had ,onc home arid tlle
wheels that otter, hummed all night
were still. It seemed to Foster, who
glanced at his watch as he picked his
way among thc lines, that thc shadow of the recent tragedy brooded
over lhc place.
"1 don'l know that I'm imaginative, but I wouldn't like the night
watchman's job just now-," he remarked to Featherstone. "Hulton's
illness can't have spoiled his nerve,
or he'd havc asked us to meet him at
Ills house, in view of what he. probably wants to talk about.""
"I suspect that Hullon's nerve is
better than yours or mine, and although I'm sorry for the old man, it
was a surprise to me when hc broke
down," Featherstone replied. "This
is the first time I've hern in the mill
llnce Fred was shot, and I'll own
lhat I'd sooner have, come in daylight."
They went round a row oi loaded
cars to the time keeper's office, where
a man told them lhat Hulton was
waiting and they were to go right up,
A dark passage, along which their
footsteps echoed, led lo a flight of
Hairs, and lhcy felt sure there was
something oppressive in the gloom,
hut a small light burned near the
top of the building, and when they
reached a landing Featherstone
touched his partner. It was at this

daunting than a sign of what had
happened there.
A short flight of stairs lo thc opens of the head ol the firm, and lho
treasurer, whose assistant Fred Hulton had been. They went on and
entered a small, plainly-furnished
room, well lighted by electrics lamps,
when- Hulton sal at a writing tabic
'nnd signed them to sit down. llis
-���boulders were bent, his clothes hung
slackly on his powerful frame, and
Featherstone thought his hair had
grown whiter since he saw him last.
He looked ill, Inn his fare was hard
and resolute, and when ho let his
eyes rest on the young men his mouth
was firmly sei. Hulton's business
acumen and tenacity wcrc known,
and it was supposed that lhc latter
quality had helped him much in llie
earlier part of his career. The other
man, who sal close by, was lhc
treasurer,  I'crcival.
"To begin wilh, 1 wanl to thank
you for thc way yon gave your evidence," Hulton said lo Featherstone,
who had been one oi the last to see
Fred Hulton alive.
"I don't know thai thanks arc
needed," Featherstone replied. "I. had
promised lo tell thc truth."
"Just so. The trnll), however,
strikes different people differently,
and you gave the matter the most
favorable look you could. We'll let
it go at that. I suppose you're still
convinced my son was in his usual
health and spirits? Mr. Percival is
in my confidence, and we have got to
talk without reserve."
"Ves, sir; 1 never found him morbid and he was cheerful when T saw
him late that night."
"Iu fact, you were surprised when
you heard what happened soon after
you left?" Hulton suggested in a
quiet voice.
"I was shocked. But, if I catch
your meaning, 1 was puzzled afterwards and had better say I see no
light yet."
"Is this how you feel about il.'"
Hulton asked Foster,
"It is," said Foster, who noted thc
man's stent calm, and Hulton turned
to  I'crcival.
"That's my first point. These men
knew my son."
Then'he looked at Featherstone.
"Fred went with you now and then
on hunting ami prospecting trips and
thai probably led to a certain intimacy, .'ou say he was never morbid; did you ever lind him anxious
or disturbed;"
Featherstone pondered. Fred Hulton, who was younger Hum he, had
spent a year or two in F.uropc before he entered the factory. He had
moreover, told Featherstone about
some trouble he had got into there,
but the latter could not tell how much
his father knew.
"You can talk straight," Hulton
resumed. "I guess 1 won't bc
"Very well. I did find him disturbed once or twice. Perhaps you
knew he had some difficulties in
';i knew about the girl," Hulton
answered grimly. "I found that out
not long since; she was a clever adventuress. But 1 don't know where
Fred got thc money he sent her. Did
you lend it to him?"
"I lent him some," Featherstone
admitted, hesitatingly. "He told inc
afterwards she had promised to make
no further claim, and I understand
she kept her word."
Hulton turned to the treasurer.
"You will see Mr. Featherstone about
this tomorrow. I've cleared up another point; Fred was not-being urged to send mrirc money." Then he
asked Foster; "Do you know if he
had any dangerous friends?"

The Allies and Wheat
The    Exceptional    Advantages    of
Western Canada in Aiding
the Situation
United States and Canada should
redouble their efforts in the production of wheat. Of the world's supply
it has been estimated that lhc United
States supplies 19 per cent, Canada
6 per cent., Italy 5 per cent., France
8 per cent., India 10 per cent, and
Russia 18 per cent. With Russia in
a muddle her 18 per cent, is going to
dwindle. Australia and Argentina
might alto bc asked to speed up but
to the great distances for transportation it is more advisable lo look to
North America.
Hitherto the question of rates was
thc all important factor, but war has
added another phase. The nearest
grain supply to Europe is North
America. The distance between Quebec and Liverpool is 2,000 miles,
while between Buenos Ayres and
Plymouth it is S.,100 miles. A vessel on thc North American route
could make two and one-half trips
at least in the same time that would
be required for it to make one trip
if on the South American route.
When it is a case of necessity it is
not a question of rates so much as a
question of time. In contracts for
the supply of foods time will bc of
the essence. Kngland must get her
food supply as near to home as possible and look to North America.
India with its 10 per cent, would
prove an important factor but her
trade route through the. Suez canal
and Mediterranean sea is still infected with submarines. To journey
around Africa would consume too
much time.
Wheat is a commodity that lends
itself to cheap transportation. Its
nature is such that without injury
it may bc loaded and unloaded by
machinery, it does not require sacks
or barrels to contain it,   it is more
economically handled in its looso
condition, it gives little or no trouble
on the water���fill the "hold" and
there is no shifting of cargo during a storm.
Of the two North. American field*
Western Canada has the advantage
It possesses large areas of wheat
Iand9 yet untouched. The country
has proved itself suited to the raising of wheat. With thc method ol
handling adopted in this country,
with the system of internal and terminal elevators, with thc possibility
of the shortest route through the
Hudson's Bay, Western Canada will
have the advantages of the lowest
rate and the shortest route to the
Brilish markets.   The opportunity i*
Do You Remember?

���Germany's Designs
Upon Belgium
Here's a Nice    Little   Excuse   For
Hanging on to the Plunder
In a resolution most recently
adopted by the pan-Germanic league
of Essen and lhe text of which has
been transmitted to Marshal Hidden-
burg and to Admirals Tirpitz and
Scheer, il is staled:

from German influence, Germany

future war. The enemy could quickly
seize upon all the big manufactories,
arsenals of fighting armies and impose upon us a dishonorable peace."
The resolution closes by this assertion that the league intends to struggle "in order that llritish arrogance
and our foe's claims may not prevail
and rob from us, in the cousc of thc
diplomatic negotiations, thc territory
which wc must not, under any pretence whatsoever, give up to them,

School   Children   Find    New   War
Work in Making Books of
The school children of Canada and
the United Slates have assembled all
the literary lights from George Adc
and 11. C. Witwer with their "Fables
in Slang" and baseball stories . to
Henry James in the utile collections
of stories which they have pasted into paper booklets for the use of T.B.
soldiers in the sanatoria of the military hospitals commission.
The question of keeping the men
affected wilh tuberculosis supplied
with sufficient reading matter is a
problem. Every so often the books
in service must be burned for sanitary reasons, and to destroy valuable
books in this way seems a great pity.
The effort of the children to supplement these libraries which must
be replenished ever so often with
reading such as soldiers like, is one
of the most appreciated supplementary services wliicli anyone has yet
thought of rendering the boys.
Teachers have supervised thc selection of stories, and the collections
are varied. There arc. love stories,
sporting talcs, adventure, detective
mysteries, humorous essays and
poems, everything bright and cheerful that can be found in the present
day monthly publications.
Pasted on heavy white paper and
stitched down the back tlicy arc very
fine little books. In each one is a
little letter from the child who made
it hoping in his best copybook form
that the soldier will enjoy it as much
as he did making it.
They come in lots to thc sanatoria
from points even as far distant as
Spokane and North Carolina, and
some of the children engaged in making the collections arc as young as
eight years.

stops soreness at once and soon the
corn or hardened callus loosens so it
can bc lifted off, root and all, without pain.
A small bottle of freezone costs
very little at any drug store, but will
positively take off every hard or sod
corn or callus. This should bc tried,
as it is inexpensive and is said not to
irritate the surrounding skin.
If your druggist hasn't any freezone

from his wholesale drug house, it is
fine stuff and acts like a charm every
Hampering Restrictions
Bread Cards Necessary for Wedding
Guests in Sweden
In such sorely pressed neutral
countries as Sweden thc war has resulted in rich and poor alike b ing
subjected to many restrictions heretofore unknown, says thc January
Popular Mechanics Magazine. An
illustration of this���not without its
humorous aspect���is found in a
Swedish wedding invitation recently
received in this country by friends of
thc bride and groom. The latter wcrc
members of two wealthy families in
Stockholm, and the handsomely engraved missive included an invitation
to a banquet at one of thc finest hotels in thc Swedish capital. It was in
a notation at thc bottom page that
thc hand of war manifested itself in
these words: "Please bring your
bread cards." This meant lhat well-
to-do hosts at weddings could not
provide the guests wilh bread except
in restricted amounts and In thc
manner prescribed by law.

Black as Dirt
About the Eyes
Liver Was All Upset and There Was
Pain   Under   the   Shoulder-
blade���Two Interesting
So many people suffer from derangements of the liver that ive feel
sure these two reports, just recently
received, will prove interesting reading and valuable information to many
readers of this paper.
Mrs. F. L. Harris, Kealley, P.O.,
Sask., writes: "I was suffering from
liver trouble���had a heavy pain under
onc shoulder blade all the time, and
was nearly as black as dirt around
thc eyes, so I concluded to try some
of Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills. I
did so, and before I had taken onc
25c box the pain had left mc and I
commenced to gain in flesh, and by
lhe lime I had taken two boxes I
was completely cured and felt like a
new person. My trouble was caused
by heavy work out-of-doors, and, of
course, heavy eating and constipation. I would advise anyone suffering from kidney or liver trouble lo
give Dr. Chase's Pills a trial."
Mrs. Charles Terry, Tweed, Out.,
writes: "Before I was married I was
troubled with enlargement of the
liver. My liver became so enlarged
that you could detect thc swellings
on either side, and it was only with
difficulty that I could get my clothes
on. A friend advised mc to get Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills and take
them. I commenced this treatment,
and used nine boxes, which cured me
at that time. Then, about two or
three years afterward I was troubled
again with the swelling, but only oir|
my right side. I secured some more
Kidney-Liver Pills, and took them,
which finally cured me. I havc not
been troubled in this way since. I
can cheerfully recommend Dr.
Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills to anyone
having kidney or liver trouble.
"Wc have also found Dr. Chase's
Linseed and Turpentine excellent for
coughs and colds. In fact, any of
Dr. Chase's medicines which we have
used havc been good."

A soldier in a certain regiment out

had recovered ���somewhat he made

Sees Potato Overfeeding
Harm in Too   Much   Starch,   Says
Pennsylvania Official
Pennsylvania: arc addicted to eating too many potatoes, in the opinion of Dr. Samuel G. Dixon, health
commissioner of that state, who advises them to eat less of this food
aud of meat, He admits, however,
that since onc man's meat is another man's poison, thc requirements of
a food administrator should bc clastic enough lo leave room for every
man to avoid thc foods which experience has taught him are harmful
and still lo get adequate nourishment.
"Most of our food stuffs are made
up of different constituents." hc says.
"A potato is largely composed of
starch whereas beefsteak is largely-
composed of nitrogen or protein.
Starch represents so many heat-producing units, and beefsteak likewise
produces its own quota. This is so
when you consider the matter from
a laboratory point, but if you made
a test of the same values by feeding
these foods to human beings, you
would find the values varied greatly
because of the variations of the. human or organic machinery which
handled them.
"The people of the slate of Pennsylvania cot too much potato. The
large proportion of, this vegetable
produces a catarrhal condition of
the digestive tract, which interferes
with digestion and leaves the patient
over a long scries of years producing starvation. Meat, as a rule, is
also overeaten by Pcnnsylvanlas.
Just now, however, during thc tension of war wc need more meat than

Finest Flower of Anarchy
Preparing Way for a Sane and Orderly System of Government
For warning Russians that tltey
would be German slaves if they fell
into the Bolshevik! trap and inadc a
separate peace with Germany, General Duklionin, thc commander-in-
chief of thc Russian forces, was
brutally assassinated by the crazed
followers of Lenine afid Trotsky. In
the murder of Duklionin Bolshevik-
ism reached its finest flower of anarchy and violence. It was a notification to all patriotic Russians of what
their fate would bc if lhcy fell into
Bolshevik! hands after resisting the
plans of the arch-traitors, Lcninc
and Trotsky. It is absurd to think
that Russians will long submit to
domination by such lawless aud
tyrannical forces, and there is good
reason to believe, that after a few
more excesses of this sort a reaction will set in against the Bolslic-
viki that will sweep them out of
power and prepare the way for the
establishment of a sane and orderly
system of government.���Springfield

Not Guilty
An Tv.CO. on duty at a German
internment camp was looking
through the bathrooms and grouching at their untidy condition. Suddenly turning a corner, he chanced
upon a diminutive Fritz, who was
peering through thc doorway.
"Hi, you!" shouted the soldier.
"Have you been taking a bath?"
"Ach���vy you say dat?" queried
the little man nervously. "Is dcrc

German Efficiency
Not Certain That It, Is the Result of
the Form of Government
Germany was well governed, ia
certain particulars; it had grown
rich and powerful; it surpassed most
other states in a variety of ways not
necessary to enumerate here. But
why? To the mind steeped in l'rus-
sianism there was but one answer
possible. It was the government! To
this two objections at once present
themselves, The first is that there
arc two kinds or degrees of efficiency; the onc like theirs, which, for
want of a better name, we may call
mechanical; the olhcr of a less tangible quality, easily recognized, but
hard to define, the efficiency of the
individual as opposed to the corporate efficiency of thc community. It
is not possible here���perhaps it is
not possible at all���to determine
which of these is the more to be desired. But it is very apparent that
what wc call thc spirit of liberty
aligns itself rather with individual
than with communal efficiency. And
thc second answer is not unlike the
first. It is that wc still await the
proof that the desirable factors in
the position which the Germans have
attained, arc due wholly or even in
considerable part to their form of
government. That is an assumption
which, like too many assumptions
proceeding from the same source, remains a dogma rather than a provable proposition'.���Wilbur C. Abbott
in the January Yale Review.
A. Scottish scientist has discovered
a new metal which ia believed to belong to thc platinum group. It is
called by him canadium. He has obtained a few grams per ton in the
pure state by treatment of certain
rocks found in Nelson, British Columbia. There is some anticipation
that the new metal will find industrial uses, especially bv jewellers.

America's entry iulo the war on

in the balance. The forces of all

Those who arc templed to give way
to tiller despondency when lhcy read
bad news from Italy or Russia pay
but a poor compliment to the superb
courage of the British and French
soldiers and do but convict themselves of a deplorable lack of imagination if they cannot conjure up
a heartening vision of America in

Headquarters Explains
lie-Attestation Ruling
Abilities Acquired in Service in Canada Given Same Consideration
.as Those Received Overseas
A discharged soldier suffering a
recurrence of a disability, pronounced by the medical officer to bc due
lo military servicc, is entitled to re-
attestation on pay and allowances
while receiving further treatment in
a military convalescent  hospital.
A ease arose recently where a discharged soldier who had never been
overseas experienced a recurrence of
a disability acquired as a result of
service in a Canadian camp. He applied for trcatmont bill the local officer was not sure that under 1'. C.
508, the order iu council, designed to
penult the renttcstation for treatment
of returned men under certain 'circumstances included men wlio had
not been overicas.
Hc applied to the headquarters of
the M.H.C. at Ottawa for instructions and was informed that the order in council made no difference between overseas men and the men
whose' disability was acquired in a
Canadian camp, provided the M.O.
declared lhat the disability was due
lo service,
Every muscle in the body needs
constantly    a   supply   of- rich,   red
hlood in proportion to the work it
does. The muscles of the back are
under a heavy strain and have but
litlle rest. When Ihe blood is thin
they lack nourishment, and thc result is a sensation of pain in those
muscles. Some people think pain
iu the back means kidney trouble,
but the best medical authorities
agree that backache seldom or never
has anything to do with the kidneys.
Organic kidney diseases may have
progressed to a critical point withoul developing a pain in thc back.
This being the case pain in the back
should always lead the sufferer to
look to thc condition of his blood.
It will be found in most cases that
thc use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
to build up thc blood will stop the
sensation of pain in the ill-nourished
muscles of thc back. How much better it is to try Dr. Williams' Pink
I'ills for the blood than to give way
to unreasonable alarm about your
kidneys. If you suspect your Kidneys any doctor can make tests in
ten minutes that will set your fears
at rc6t, or tell you thc worst. But
in any cvcnl to bc perfectly healthy
you must keep the blood in good
condition, and for this purpose no
other medicine can equal Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.

any dealer iu medicine, or by mail at

Necessity for Speeding Up on the Farms of the Dominion was
Never so Urgent as at the Present Time, and Authorities
Should Take Action to Secure thc Required Help
Day hy Jay, with growing insistence, the call of thc firm for labor
is heard. If Europe is not to suffer
from famine on a scale heretofore unknown among civilized men there
must be a great speeding up of agricultural production uu this continent.
The tolal ol thc world's food stocks
Is not far short ol the normal consumption, .'inil if shipping were available to carry the surplus of cereals
and ments to he found in Australia,
India, and South America to thc
European consumer there would he
little danger of serious shortage. Hut
���hipping is not available in sufficient
tonnage to make the long voyages
required lo bring the food surplus of
the Orient nnd of South America
within reach of the Brilish, French
and Italian consumers, The North
American continent, because of its
proximity to Europe, must continue
to bc the chief source of food supply
for the allied nations uniil the end of
thc war and during lhc earlier stages
of reconstruction.
The necessity for speeding up on
the farms of the Dominion was never so urgent as it is today. Yet it
Is doubtful whether Canada during
the coming crop year will produce as
large a surplus ol' food for export as
In the earlier years of thc war, when
lhc need was not so great. Many
careful observers, including the leaders of the farmers themselves, slate
lhat there are not enough workers
left on thc farms���apart altogether
from the scarcity of labor due lo the
operation of thc military service act
���to maintain production even at the
level set in former years. Mr. Harry
Frankland, who is not an alarmist,
and who is in a position to undcr-
Itand the town dweller's point of
view as well as the farmer's, made
a strong appeal in yesterday's is-
lue of The Globe for the help without which the farms of Ontario cannot bc made to yield their accustomed increase during the coming sea-
ion.   He says:
"It is up lo the citizens to organize
ind send help to the farms during
My and August and half of September this coming year, or farmers will
be loath to sow grain or food. They
will be afraid that their labor will be
In vain, and they will turn good
wheat and oat ground into pasture. I
would respectfully rcci ..eiiU those
who can and know Im to organize
lo do so now, and show the farmer
before it is too late thai lie will havc
issistancc to harvr ��� his grain next
leason. Prepare to closr stores, factories and warehouses, if necessary,
jnd let us havc volunteers. The time
������ now opportune; wait not for tomorrow."
Mr. Frankland's call is for volunteers. But why volunteers? If men
lo grow food arc as necessary to the
juccess of Ihe allied cause as men to
bear arms, why should nut the principle of selective conscription bc as
applicable to thc growing of food as
to the raising A armies? Britain
penalizes the fanner who turns good
wheat and oat ground into grazing
land. Britain insists on the breaking
np of pasture suitable for cropping.
But in doing so the men charged
with the task of increasing the British supply of home-grown food sec
lo it that farm 1-bor is provided
where required. Men in thousands
wcrc released temporarily from the
army last spring lo get in the crop.
A very complete organization exists
Io direct women's labor lo the farms,
although compulsion is not yet applied in the case of women workers.
Ought not similar measures to hc
laken in Canada? Among the hundred thousand unmarried men lo be
called up for service from time to
lime under the military service act,
there must bc many thousands who
are accustomed to farm work and
who could bc used to advantage early
In the season in preparing llur ground
and sowing the crops. The militia
department docs not propose to call
up the whole hundred thousand at
once for training. It may he well
Into the summer before the last call
conies (or overseas service. Why not
utilize now for farm work some of
the men who will not bc included in
lhc drafts to bc sent abroad immediately?
There arc other sources of farm
labor that should be drawn upon
without hesitation. ' Government offices all over the country are full of
men and women who came from the
farm and arc still able to do farm
work. It would bc a mighty stimulus
to war effort were the announcement
to bc made that the members of the
Dominion and provincial civil services had, by lengthening the hours
of labor and voluntarily increasing
the work done by each, released a
thousand men and women to aid in
food production. The call for volunteers from private offices, workshops
and stores would come with much
g'_atcr force from men who, as servants of the people, were urging oth
ers to follow llieir example. "Come
on" is always a belter cry than "Go
The soil of Canada should bc used
to the utmost possible extent for the
production of grain, dairy products,
and food animals from now until the
end o( the war. It is the duty cf thc
government to see that land capable
of use is not held idle for lack of
labor. And if lhat duty cannot be
performed withoul recourse to the
principle of compulsion there should
be no hesitation in applying it. Here
iu Canada, with peace and prosperity
surrounding us, we do not yet understand lhat our own liberties and our
own future are at stake in thc grim
struggle thai is being waged ill
Franco and Flanders. If the allies
fail for lack of food, that failure will
be ours as much as theirs, and its
consequences will he felt by us and
Ihose who conic after us for many
a long year. Growing foodstuffs in
Canada is not an ordinary business at
present. It is a war industry, and
must bc so regarded by thc govcrn-
men and thc people generally, as well
as by thc men and women engaged
in it. If voluntary workers cannot
be secured to carry on the industry
the state must step in and exercise
thc power of compulsion.���Toronto

The Zeppelin is ��� Failure
Germany Has Only   Thirteen    Airships Left of a Fleet of
Germany's Zeppelin program, announced with boastful pride in 1914,
stands a dreary failure today.
Accurate figures show that of fifty-
three Zeppelins put into commission
since 1914, thirty-five have been destroyed, two havc been badly damaged and put permanently out of
commission, two possibly destroyed,
now missing, and one is badly damaged and temporarily out of commission.
Of the thirteen remaining in service eight arc detailed to the North
Sea, two to the Baltic and three as
experimental  school  ships.
Kaids over France, England and
Belgium have cost thc Germans seventeen Zeppelins, eight having been
account- for in England, live in
France and four iu Belgium. Accidents by tire, wind and lightning have
destroyed at least eight in Germany.
Zeppelin numbers, according to accurate calculations, started with the
L-l and ended with L-57. Numbers
between 25 and 30 have not been employed, leaving 53 to bc accounted
L-l and L-2 wcrc destroyed before
the war. The first fell in the North
Sea and thc second was accidentally
burned at Fuhlshbuttel. In addition
to her Zeppelins Germany has had in
commission since the beginning of
the war at least thirteen airships of
the Schuttc-Lanz, Gross and Parsc-
val types. Of these possibly seven
remain in service, two, however, as
non-combatant instruction ships.
Meanwhile the
Empire is Growing
The British Empire Still   Continues
To Expand
Thc Germans may well be discouraged if they aim to smash the
Britisii empire. They arc no nearer
thc hate-England heaven than Napoleon was, or Louis XIV., or Philip
of Spain. Napoleon overran Europe
as the Germans have not succeeded
in doing, yet thc Britisii empire
stood like a rock. Today, it is true,
the Germans and their allies arc in
parts of Kussia, Rumania, Italy,
France and Flanders, but the Britisii
havc recently driven the last German out of Africa and have now
made their grip on the Suez canal
and Egypt stronger than ever by
taking thc heart of Palestine. Europe's great continental wars always
overshadowed the contemporaneous
events in other continents, particularly the decisive little battles on the
outskirts of Christian civilization,
whether in North America or Asia.
Thus Wolfe conquered Canada and
Clivc India. When Europe stopped
fighting and bleeding, the British
empire had usually grown in size.���

lapsible paper lifeboat, tlie invention
of a rear admiral of tho Japanese
navy appeared in several journals.
This boat was said to weigh hut n
few pounds and could bc folded up
Into a very small compass. Upon Investigation some very Interesting information regarding the paper used
in the construction of this boat was
The rrar admiral's invention consists not of si new paper, bu^ratlier
if a chemical process whereby a very
tough fibre paper is rendered waterproof, This paper has been manufactured by the Japanese for centuries from the fibre ol the mulberry
trees, The paper is made up into any
desired shape by cutting and cementing with an especially prepared adhesive; a lapped joint of onc-cightll
to five thirty-seconds of an Inch lias
as much strength as the surrounding
With the above mentioned adhesive any number of thickness can bc
cemented together and an almost unbelievable strength obtained. The
paper is nearly lis pliable as doth and
no amount of folding or crumpling
seems lo diminish ils strength, A
hole made in the body of the paper
shows less tendency to enlarge than
a similar hole in cloth, When desired the paper can bc treated with
au antiseptic which renders a sack
made of this material capable of
holding water continuously for several months.
Owing to lack of capital the. admiral turned over his invention to a
company which is at present engaged
principally in making and testing oul
sample articles of this paper; There
seems to be no limit to the different
uses to which this paper can be put.
Some lime ago a sample sandbag
was submitted, upon request, to thc
British government; if this proves
satisfactory thc company agrees to
furnish the sacks at the rale of one
million a month until lhc end of the
war. These bags posses all the
strength of canvas sacks, but unlike
theni they arc waterproof, hence can
bc easily emptied, carried lo an advance position, refilled and placed in
any desired spot.
Life preservers, inner tubes for
motor ear tires, bladders for footballs, air cushions, air mattresses,
sacks for Portland cement, ponchos,
"pup" tents and mothproof hags for
clothing arc a few of the things that
have been made and tested out and
as far as can bc ascertained lisivc
proved successful.���Scientific American.

Captain Gives Life
In Fight with U-Boat
Victoria Cross Awarded to the Family for Brave Battle With
Never was the Victoria Cross more
fittingly awarded, observes the London Morning Post, in telling the
story of Thomas Crisp. On an August afternoon at about 2:45 thc trawl
was shot from thc Nelson, while the
fishing smack was on the port tack.
The skipper was below packing fish.
One man was on deck cleaning fish
for lhe next morning's breakfast. The
skipper came on deck, saw an object on the horizon, examined it
closely and sent for his glasses.
Directly he sang "out, "Clear for
action. Submarine." He had scarcely spoken when a shot fell about 100
yards away on the port bow. Thc
motor-nan got to his motor; the deck
hand dropped his fish and went to
the ammunition room. The other
hand at the skipper's orders, "Let go
your gear." Meanwhile the gun-
layer held his fire until the skipper
said: "It i.s no use waiting any longer; we will have to lct them have it."
Away in the distance thc submarine sent shell after shell at thc
smack and about thc fourth shot the
shell went through the port bow-
just below the waterline. Then the
skipper shovcr her round.
There was no confusion on board
not even when the seventh shell
struck thc skipper, passed through
his side, through the deck and out
through lhc side of the ship. The
second hand at once took charge of
lhe tiller and thc firing continued.
All the lime water was pouring into
thc ship, and she was sinking. One
man, thc gun-layer, went to the skipper to sec if hc was mortally wounded.
"It's all right, boy; do your best,"
said the skipper, and then, to thc
second hand: "Send a message off."
This was the message: "Nelson being attacked by submarine. Skipper
killed.    Send assitance at once."
All this time the smack was sinking and only five rounds of ammunition were left. The second hand
went to the skipper, lying there on
thc deck, and heard him say: "Abandon ship. Throw the books overboard." Hc was asked then if they
should lift him into the boat but his
answer was: "Tom, I'm done; throw
me overboard."
He was too badly injured to be
moved, and they left him there on
his deck and took to the small boat.
A quarter of an hour afterward the
Nelson went down by the head.

"The mosl dangerous foe of Germany in this generation will prove to
In- the United Stales." Tin's prophesied  Dr.  Otto  Hotscll    professor  at
the War Academy in Berlin in art article in the Alldeutschc Blatter, on
August 23, 1902, and lhc learned doctor has certainly prophesied better
than he knew. How completely
America has upset the whole German apple-cart can only hr appreciated when it ia realized that decades
ago Germany planned first lo conquer Europe and then to attack and
dominate au isolated and helpless
America. Open avowals of this conspiracy have bee. collected by the
United Stales iimcnt in a bro
chure entitled- - ..jqucst and Kultur," compiled by Professors Notc-
steiu and Stoll, of the University of
Minnesota, and issued by thc committee of public Information at Washington,
From the evidence there collected
it can bc seen that the Germans have
been by no means reticent about
their intentions, and tlicy seem to
have calculated upon thc good-natured Anglo-Saxon's refusal lo believe
the. Teuton capable of such depths
of long-sighted.villany. This side of
the queslion is emphasized by the
committee on public information
when it quotes the letter of Dr. W.
T. Homaday in the New York Tribune of August 11, 1915, containing
thc statements made to him by Maj.
M. A. Bailey, who recounts how he
traveled with . Count von Goctzen,
onc of Germany's military attaches,
from Santiago, Cuba, immediately
after the Spanish-American war. On
llieir way to America Count von
Goetzen confided lo Major Bailey,
twenty years in advance, the history
of thc beginning of this war and
Major Bailey's account runs:
"Apropos of a discussion ... on
the. friction between Admiral Dewey
and the German admiral at Manila,
I von Goctzen said to mc: '1 will tell
you something which you had better
I make a note of. I am not afraid to
tell you this because if you do speak
of it, no one would believe you and
everybody will laugh at yon.
" 'And fifteen years from now my
country will start her great war. She
will be in Paris in about two months
after thc commencement of hostilities. Her move on Paris will be but
a step lo ber real object���the crushing of England. Everything will
move like clockwork. Wc will bc prepared and others will not be prepared. I speak of this because of thc
connection which it will have with
your own country.
" 'Some months after wc finish our
.work in Europe, wc will take New
York, and probably Washington, and
hold them for some time. Wc will
put your country in its place with
reference to "Germany. Wc do not
purpose to take any of your territory; but we do intend to take a
billion or more dollars from New
York and other places. The Monroe
Doctrine will be taken charge of by
us, as we will then have put you in
your place, and wc will take charge
of South America as far ns wc want
This project of an invasion of
America subsequent to a German
victory in Europe was developed at
great length in 1901 by Baron von
Edelsheim in his book: "Operations
Upon thc Sea," and it should be recollected that when he wrote it he
was in the service of the German
general staff. He said, probably with
sonic foreknowledge of German habits in conquered countries:
"The fact that onc or two of her
provinces arc occupied by invaders
would nol alone move thc Americans
to sue for peace To accomplish this
end, the invaders would have to inflict real material damage by injuring the whole country through the
successful seizure of many of the Atlantic ports, in which thc threads of
the entire wealth of the nation meet.
It should bc so managed that a line
of land operations would be in close
juncture with the fleet, through which
wc would bc in a position to seize in
a short lime many of these important
and rich cities, to interrupt their
means of supply, disorganize all governmental affairs, assume the control
of all useful buildings, confiscate all
war and transport supplies, and lastly, to impose heavy indemnities . . .
as a matter of fact, Germany is the
only great power which is in a position to conquer the United States."
There has becn a slight dislocation
in this interesting program, but a
still more marked miscalculation was
made regarding the German immigrant and his functions, which were,
of course, to prepare the way for the
ultimate absorption of America into
the bosom of the Fatherland and
until that happy day arrived he was
to asisst by every means in his power that program of active Germanlza-
tion of American institutions which
we know to have been directed from
Berlin. For example, Wilhclm Hub-
bc-Sclileidcn, writing in the Alldcut-
iche Blatter in 1903, said:
"It is lhe duty of cwry one  v.ho
loves languages  to sec that  iho  fu
nic language spoken in America
shall bc German. It is of the highest importan , keep up tlie German language ul America, to eslab-
lish German universities, improve
the schools, introduce German newspapers, and lo scc that at American
Universities German professors are
more capable than their English-
Speaking colleagues, ri"d make their
influence felt III ...lakably on
thought, science, an and literature.
If Germans hear this in mind and
help accordingly, thc goal will eventually he reached. At lhe pr.-sent moment the center of Germs n intellectual activity is in Germany: in the
remote future it will be In America."
The German emigrant was traincil
lo feel that in leaving his native
shores he was followed hy the protecting hand of the Fatherland, and
wc find the kaiser himself paying iu
a speech as early as June 16, 1S96:
"The German empire has become
a world empire. Everywhere in distant quarters of the earth thousands
of our countrymen arc living. German
guardians of the sea, German .science,
German industry, are going acros.-t
the sea. It is my wish that, standing
in closest union, you help uie to dn
my duty not only to my countrymen
in a narrower sense, but also to the
many thousands of countrymen i'i
foreign lands. This means that I may
be able to protect them if I must."
Nearly twenty yearn after tlm
kaiser made this utterance we slill
find in thc mind of the All Highest
the conviction that he can do what
he pleases with America. Just before we threw in our lot with tho
rest of thc world in this fij-'it for
democracy, our ambassador in Berlin, Mr. James W. Gerard, had an
inlervievv with the emperor ot significant import. In bis book, "My Four
Years iu Germany," he thus describes the. incident:
"The emperor was standing; so naturally I stood also; and, according:
to bis habit, which is quite Roosevcl-
lian, he stood very close to ine, anl
talked very earnestly , . . Hc showed.
however, great bitterness against tha
United States and repeatedly sail
America had better loots, out after
this war; and 'I shall stand no nonsense from America after the war.'
"I was so fearful in reporting the
dangerous part of lhis interview, on
account of the many spies not only
in my own embassy, but also in the
state department, that I sent but .,
very lew words in a roundabout way
by courier direct to the president.*
We were not only to bc conquered
but also to bc turned out of our
home. Thc fate ill store for thosi
who did not respond gracefully to
Germanizatipn is told In Klaus Wagner's "Kricg," published in 1906:
"By the right of war thc right ol
strange races to migrate into Germanic settlements will bc takrn away.
By right of war thc non-Germanic
population in America and Greal
Australia must be settled in \i'rica."

Some Reciprocity
California Sending Prune   Trees   to
France to Rehabilitate Orchards
Devastated by Huns
Five and one half millions pound,
of seed beans and 1,500,00*) two-year-
old French prune irecs arc being
gathered in California for shipment
to Northern ranee to rehabilitate the
fields and orchards devastated by the
Germans in their retreat.
Thc beans are pink and black cyi
varieties, and the quantity is sufficient
to plant 69,000 acres. The prune
trees will convert 15,000 acres into
hearing orchards within two years.
There is a bit of sentiment in California's sending young orchards to
France, as it was this war torn republic, that gave the state its first
prune trees. This was in 1S56 and
since that time the prune orchards
cover nearly 100,00*) acres and bring
to thc growers more than $10,000,000
a year.
If an average crop is raised from
the California seed it will mean an
addition to the food supply of France
of morc than two and ore half
pounds of beans next summer to each
of the 40,000,000 residents. Shipments will begin immediately.

l Ford Car Takes the Place of
All These Things
WHEN you own a Ford you can do away with many
articles that are a source of continuous expense to
the man who still drives a horse. For instance, not
only your driving-horse and buggy, but the single harness,
blankets, -whips, currycombs, brushes, horse-shoes,, pitchforks, feed-bins, etc.
In their place you have a speedy, dependable, dignified,
roomy Ford Car���complete in itself. It is vastly superior to
the narrow, cramped buggy that travels so slowly. And
when a Ford is standing idle it does not eat three meals a
day, and it requires no "looking after."
A Ford will save you time, trouble, and money. It is the
utility car for the busy farmer and his family.

J with tlie roadbed, the two men in
! the locomotive did not see any d.in

I in a few yards of llie cave,
Throwing on all brakes and
shutting off steam, Austin and
Droube jumped from the engine
which was going over the cave at
this time, llie locomotive going
over, but in doing so the rear
wheels of the tender broke tlirougli
allowing the mail coach to drop
into tht cave, the coupling breaking which allowed to continue ou
partly off anil partly on tlle track
until it came to a stop about fifty
feet beyond the cave.
llefore they could get away after
jumping from the engine, Austin
and Droube were pinned to the
ground by the tn iii car, which inflicted their injuries. After con-
siderable effort thev were extricated
from under the wrecked car and
made as comfortable as possible until the arrival of Dr. McPhee Wilks
and Ingham from Nanaimo, who,
after giving temporary treatment
to the injured 111.11, had them removed to the local hospital where
it was found that Ausin'sriijht foot
was broken aud a portion of the
heel torn completely away. His
pelvis is also badly injured if uot
fractured and it is feared that he
lias also sustained internal injuries,
Droube's injuries were less serious
consisting of a fractured arm and
a number of biuises, besides being
badly shaken up.
Mr, D. H. Shiuneg, clerk iu the
mail car, had a very nawow escape. When the weight of the
tender snapped the two heavy steel
rails tbe ends crashed through the
bli.id end of the mail car. passing
through its eitire length and into
the baggage car, which telescoped
the mail car for a distance of several feet, Shinneg was assortiug
mail at the time, and when the car
came to a stop he found himself
amongst a mass of wreckage, with
a steel rail on either side of him,
and how he escaped being impaled
is nothing short of a miracle. As
It was, apait from a few slight cuts
aud a shaking up he escaped injury
None of the passengers, amongst
whom were Mr. Duncan Thompson and Mrs. Merryfield of Cum-
beiland, were injured, although
they were all more or less thrown
about when the coaches were
brought to a sudden slop. Some
of the passengers returned to Nanaimo, while the majority walked
from the scene of the accident to

they awaited the arrival of the
