Then irriiiio a profitable contract,
-.hicli Lawrence obtained against
keen opposition, for supplying telephone posts, and Foster was surprised to find that the description oi
Iheir efforts to get the logs, out of

talc. Although be paused once or
twice apologetically, the others made

Hc could, however, change tbe
scene, and skipping much, came to
Start ns general contractors at Gardner's Crossing. The Hulton Company, which was not so large then,
gave them work, but they were hampered hy want of capital, and bad to
meet the competition of richer and
sometimes unscrupulous antagonists.
Still llicy made progress; staking all
they had on the chance of carrying
out risky work that others would not
touch, sometimes testing the patience of creditors, and now and then
outwitting a-rival by an ingenious
ruse.    Lawrence lived in  the single-

Then tlicy built the. sawmill with
thc help of Lawrence's check from
home, and soon afterwards met with
their worst reverse. They had engaged to supply the Hulton Company with lumbi r of a certain kind
for sonic special work, and then
found that few ol the trees they required grew near thc river. This
meant that a skidway must bc made
over a very rough hill and a gasoline
winding engine bought or hired to
haul the logs out of the next valley.
There was, however, another fir easily accessible that might suit the
purpose, lint not i|iiile as well, and
Foster related bow he and his partner sat up late one night calculating
costs and wondering whether they
I should pay Hulton a fine to break
I the bargain. He added naively that
tlicy were some lime arguing if they
should  substitute  the inferior  wood.
"Whose opinion  was it  that     you
Well,"   said   Foster,   "Lawrence
said  so  first, luil   I   think  wc     both
meant to let them have lhe. best." _
Featltcrstone's glance at his wife
indicated relief, bul something in
Alice's face, showed that she had
known what Foster's reply would bc,
She had listened with keen interest,
and he stopped, half amused and
half embarrassed. Perhaps he had
talked loo much, and wbib: be meant
to do Lawrence justice, lie did nol
want lo play Ibe part of tlie indomitable pioneer for the girl's benefit.
Moreover, he knew she would delect
and despise llilll for any attempt to
do so, and as be valued her good
opinion, i1 was not modesty alone
that led him to make Lawrence the
hero of the piece.
"So you stuck to your bargain!"
Featherstone remarked. "Tell us
how you carried it out."
Foster forgo! himself and the others as he continued, for he had a
vivid memory of the struggle. Hc
took charge of the work in the
woods, while Lawrence tactfully
pressed for payment of outstanding
accounts, put oflf creditors, and somehow provided money for wages. As
extra gangs had to be hired. Foster
owned that he did not know bow the
thing v.:.s done. Hc cut a grade for
thc skidway up the bill, slashing
tangled bush and blasting roe1;^

long after b'.s men slopped, are' .tit-
rrwards learned that Lawrence often
went without a meal when pay day
got near. Hut they hauled out Ibe
logs and the lumber was delivered.
When hc stopped, Featherstone
looked up with some color in Iiis
"Thank you," he said. "It is a
moving tale. The money we scut
you was well spent. 1 could have
expected nothing better oi my sou.
But 1 suppose you found it paid to
keep your promise."

sec, wc hnd put in a few wood working machines. In fact, after a time,
Hulton lold Lawrence to walk
through thc factory now and then
and send in anything the heads of
departments required. But I've talked long enough and fear you're bored."
"No," said Featherstone simply,
"you have given us great pleasure
and made us realize the bracing life
my sou in leai.ing. You eould havc
done us 110 favor that would equal
Then hc took Foster off to thc
gun room, where tlicy smoked :.nd
talked about the day's shooting, until Featherstone said rather abruptly. "Perhaps I had better tell you
that I didn't send Lawrence thc
check that enabled you to build thc
mill. It was not in my power to do
so then."
"Hut he s.,id tlie money came from
"It did. Alice was left a small
legacy and insisted on selling the
shares it consisted of in order to
help her brother. I must confess
lhat I tlioughl she was rash, but the
money was hers. Now it is obvious
that the sacrifice she made t\*as justified."
Featherstone began to talk about
something else, but Foster felt embarrassed. It looked at if hc owed
his success in business to the girl's
generosity, and although he could
not see why lhis should disturb liim,
it did.
He wenl down to dinner rather
early and found Alice in tin; hall.
There was nobody dec about, and by
the way she looked up as he advanced he thought slur had been wailing
for Iiini. Alice had beauty, but it
wits her proud reserve lie felt most.
She did not give her friendship lightly, but he believed it v.as worth winning.
"1 wanted to thank you for explaining things so well," she. said.
"It's the first time wc have reajly
learned much about my bralhcr's life
in Canada."
Foster hesitated. "I felt lhat yotl
wanted to know. But, in a way, it
must havc sounded rather egotistical. In fact, thc thing wasn't as easy
as you perhaps think."
Alice smiled. "Vou couldn't leave
yourself out, although it was obvious that you meant to give my brother the leading part."
"I honestly don't think I exaggerated." '
"No," she agreed, "it sounded real,
and there were touches, little personal characteristics, you couldn t have
imagined. You see, I am younger
than Lawrence and thought him
something of a romantic hero before,
he left home." Then she paused for
a moment.   "I got a very bad shock
when lie was forced to go. You
know why In: went?"
"I don't; I've sometimes thought
hc wanted to tell mc."
"Then you never asked?"
"I did not; I think I didn't want,
to know."
She gave him a steady searching
glance and hc felt that if hc had been
insincere she would havc found out.

The Dignity of Farming
Will Be Looked Up to as   One   of
thc Princes of the Land
This war has done one thing; it
has made farming one of thc most
dignified callings a man can engage
in. There was a lime when many
looked on the cultivator of the soil
as "a mere hayseed," not worthy of
being considered seriously in the
economics of thc nation, but that
day has passed. Today everybody is
appealing to the farmer to come to
thc rescue of the nation by helping
to produce something to eat so that
wc can win the war. The day is
not far distant when the "man who
makes two blades of grass grow
where only onc grew before" will be
looked up to as one of the princes
of the land. ��� Montgomery, Ala.,

AFTER the publication of
his Receipt Book Dr.
Chase found himself over-
Whelmed with the demand for
his services and his medicines.
Not onljr did patients come from
many miles to throng his office,
but the mails were filled with
letters ordering medicines.
Bather than disappoint his patients
and admirers, and always anxious to
relievo suffering, the doctor decided
to give to the people the great prescriptions which had been so thoroughly tested and so remarkably suc
cessful in his private practice.
And so it came that Dr. Chase's
Medicines were placed on public sale
at nominal prices*. To-day you can
scarcely find a drug store that is not
stocked with a full Tine of these medicines, and that home is the exception
where there is not one or more of
them in use.
Like most articles of exceptional merit
and largo sales Dr. Chase's Medicine! ara
-widely Imitated, and substitutes are frequently offered in their place. On this account It If very Important that you should
see the portrait and signature of A. W.
Chase, M.D., the famous Reeolpt Book
author, on the box you buy. They ara
printed on every box for your protection,
and Imitators do not dare to uie them.

Destruction of Subs.
Parts of   Submarines   Included   in
Catch of Dutch Fishermen
Not only fish, but parts of German
submarines destroyed now frequently constitute the catch of Dutch fishermen when thoy haul up their nets
off tbe Dutch coast, according to H.
Venstra, a dairy expert from Hoi
"Floating parts of submarines are
raising havoc wilh llic nets of our
fishermen," Mr. Venstra said. "In
many cases floatsam and jetsam
have been submitted to coast guardsmen and officers of the Dutch navy
and were identified as belonging to
submarines that probably had been
destroyed by depth charges."

A Stupendous Decision
Women Can Become the Dominant
Political Power of the Future
Commenting on the granting of
thc franchise to 6,000,000 women in
the British Isles, the Edinburgh
Scotsman says: "It is a stupendous
decision. It assuredly would not
have been taken but for the demonstration of women's capabilities
which the war has brought. No one
four years ago foresaw bow powerfully thc fabric of our national life
could be buttressed by women's
work, That element is everywhere
today; it has disclosed reserves of
national strength that imply permanent developments; ils relation to
organized labor in its old form, i*
onc of thc problems of thc reconstruction period." Woman, it she
asserts herself, can become the dominant political power of the future.

French Strong for Boycott
Germany Cannot Live Without Permission of the Allies
l-'rirncli opinion is more and more
Inclined to emphasize thc enormous
value to the allies of llur economic
weapon against Germany. Nearly
every day there is a call licrc for a i
plain statement from llie allies as lo
tin- manner in which the economic
boycott will be used if Germany persists in prolonging lire war.
Edmond Laskinc, a well-known
writer on economics, remarks in
[liberie that thc allies hold trump
cards of which no l.tuU-ndorlT or
Trolsisky can deprive them.
���'These," lur says, "arc llu- mastery
of the most important world markets and a monopoly of the most
Important raw materials. When the
German chancellor poses in the
Reichstaft as the supreme dictator

may bc master of Reval and Riga,
the allies are lhe masters of the
"The Germans can pillage and
massacre without our permission,
but without that permission they
cannot live. Germany musl bo given
to understand that a resumption of
normal economic relations depends
nol only on her accepting lhe allies'
peace terms, hut on the dale when
slic accepts tliem.
"So far as German exports are
concerned, the allies ought to prepare a boycotting system of conditional duration. The Germans oughl
to be told that if they agree to peace
within six months their products-will
be excluded from the allies' markets
lor five years only; if the war lasts
another year our boycott should continue ten years after the signature of
pence, and so forth. It would thus
be left to Germany herself to decide
how long llic boycott on her trade
would last."

The livestock branch of lire, department of agriculture has expressed the opinion lhat "any aciion taken arbitrarily lo prohibit tlle slaughter of calves or females or lo limit

otherwise would hc absolutely unwise." Under present conditions thc
farmer reaps a profit from lhe feeding of calves to veal age, while previous to the war such calves were
killed as soon as horn. Such prohibition as that proposed would,
therefore, cause a return of the prewar practice, resulting in a very considerable waste of food.

The Art of Forgetting

Disagreeables of Life
If you would increase your happiness and prolong your life, forget
your neighbor's faults. Forget the

cause wliicli provoked it. Forget
thc peculiarities of your friends, and
remember only the good points
which made you fond of Ihem. Forget all personal quarrels or histories
jott may have��� heard by accident,
and which, if repeated, would sccin
a thousand times worse than tlicy

To   Cure    Common   Ailments   the
Blood Must be Made Rich
and Red
Nearly all thc common diseases
that afflict mankind arc caused by
bad blood-weak, watery blood poisoned by Impurities. Bad blood is thc
cause of headaches and backaches,
lumbago and rheumatism, debility
and indigestion, neuralgia, sciatica
and other nerve troubles. It is had
blond that causes disfiguring skin
diseases like eczema, and salt rheum,
pimples and eruptions. Thc severity
of th'-. trouble indicates how impure
the Wood is, and it goes always from
bad lo worse, unless steps are
promptly taken to enrich and purify
the blood. There is no use trying a
different medicine for cae.lt disease,
for llicy.all conic llirougli the one
trouble���had blood. To cure any of
these Irotblcs you must get right
down to the root of lhe trouble in
llic blood. That is just what Dr.
Williams' Pink J'ills do. Tlicy make
new, rich red blood. They simply
purify i -id enrich the blood, and the
disease disappears. That is why Dr.
Williams' Pink Tills have cured
thousands bf rases after other medicines had failed. Here is proof of
thc power bf Dr. Williams' l'ink
Tills to cure. Mrs. M. Stills, who
resides near the town of Napancc,
says: I cannot praise Dr, Williams'
l'ink Pills too highly. 1 was very

Spy Gave Wrong Answer  to   Ques-
Hon Couched in Slang
Civilization will become    a    myth j
like the lost, Atlantis if another war,
Waged more scientifically and   more I
diabolically  than   lhis    one,  is    ever I
allowed to occur, said John Masefield I
in a.i address  at Aeolian   Hall,    llis I
subject was "The War and the Fu-
nrc."     Uc   lold     of    wnr    incidents
'which have conic under my eyes or
have happened to friends of    mine,"
and  he  touched   on   thc   end   of  all
wars, which  he    earnestly     believes
must result from this one.
"If two great nations-yours and
mine���would agree to end war, it
would inr done," lie said.
His stories made the war sccni
near and real, peopled by human beings. Incredibly neat was the. self-
betrayal of one spy at Gallipoli, who
was unversed in lho intricacies of
English idiom, "ft was tlie day aft-
���r the landing, April 2d," he said,
'and an Australian captain was up
thc hill al Alizac. And an Australian major came to him and said,
'Don't let your men fire to their
front for tlie nest half hour, because
an Indian working parly has jusl
gone up and might be hit.' And thc
captain thought this odd, as hc had
seen no Indian working pally. The
major bad the. number 31 on his
shoulder strap, and tin- captain
tlioughl this odd, as only eighteen
battalions, from 1 to IS, bad lauded.
And be said to the major, '1 say, arc
you fair dinkuni?' (wbieh means, Mr.
Masefield translated, straight goods,
on lhe level). And the major said,
'Yes, I'm Major Fairdinkum.' So
tlicy shot liim for a spy, and it seems
lie had taken llic number 13 from a
dead man and twisted it around,
which was unwise of him."   ���
And Mr. Masefield told little incidents of everyday life .and oj, the
nerve and verve, and general gaycr'.y
of the men who fight the war.
"General Hir_dwood had charge of
the Australians," hc said, "and the
men called him Birdie ami worshipped liim. Hc was a bright little man
and greatly loved. Hc was given to
talking to every one, and every man
on the peninsula believed that Birdie
knew him by name. Onc day he was
walking along thc trenches and looking into thc dqgouts and chaffing
the men. It was very hot and there
was scarcely any water. And hc saw
a soldier, washing in a cup as big as
a finger-bowl. And hc said, 'Hullo,
having a good washup? And thc
man answered, 'Yes, general, and 1
only wish  1 was a bally canary.'"

Interest in the War by People of Germany is Maintained by
Occasional Spectacular Achievements in the Field, and
Crushing Defeat is the Only Way to Bring Peace
The Trouble is Not That the British Sailor is Alarmed, but Tha'
He is Too Careless and Contemptuous of the Risks
Occasioned by Submarine Depredations
Colonel Theodore Roosevelt, former president of the United States,
was right when lie said, as reported:
"If the Hun has any notion that
he'll frighten thc Britisii seaman off
the waters by his frightfulncss he
has another think coming.' The
trouble doesn't seem to bc that the
Britisii marine is too cautious and
iclf-calculating in dealing with Teuton U-boat frightfulncss, but that hc
is too careless and contemptuous. It
has been necessary for thc admiralty to issue during thc past few days
an official warning to the effect that
several vessels have been torpedoed
by reason of failure to screen their
lights when passing through the
danger zone at night. A special observation showed that only one out
of eight ships passing a given point
obeyed the order to darken their sig-
nills- .        . . r    I
Of course this is serious and foolhardy conduct, and very reprehensible at a time when shortage in
ships is most acute. But the daring
disobedience must be disconcerting
to thc calculations of, the Htm. He
estimated thc character of the British seaman hy Teutonic standards.
Hc figured on success tlirougli fear
and frightfulncss. By sinking their
ships and displaying deviltry toward
seamen and passengers, including
women and children, hc imagined
Britain would soon find herself unable to secure men to sail her vessels. Hc boasted that he would
bring her "to her knees"���and set
feverishly about his fiendish job.
Kaiserism is learning the dauntless
character of Britons. After months
of ruthless operation of the under-
���cas menace, after more than twelve
hundred merchant vessels have been
sunk within a year, the Hun    finds
that instead of having frightened his
unflinching enemy from the sea it is
necessary for his foe to issuo- specific
warnings against the careless    contempt in which British seamen hold
I his    treacherous    submarines.     The
1 spirit of the sea-grit Isles finds expression not alone on the fields    of
Erance and Flanders, and in the Far
Fast, but in the silent, effective service of thc fisher folk, whose trawlers are forever picking up mines and
gathering in submarines, the   scions
I of Drake and Nelson ceaselessly pa-
| trolling the waters, and the men who
'go down  to the sea in unprotected
merchant  vessels and liners against
thc  ui5S��-.n    and    lurking     danger.
When    this   spirit is broken Britain
may -be beaten.    But     the    Teuton
knows now that he cannot break it.

older men wcrc still in thc firing

reserves to replace such men were
scouted by Herr Rysscl, a Socialist.

remarked, "to request all the pan-
German braggarts, who thank God
the war is not yet ended, to volunteer. The feeling at the fronl is not
enthusiastic, and lhis is not surprising in view of the treatment the
soldiers arc getting."
Criticising the food of the soldiers,
Herr Kysscl declared there wcrc
units in the army called "hunger
companies," and lie remarked that a
furlough could bc bought hy subscribing to the war loan. He ended
hy demanding the appointment of a
Commission of inquiry to examine
Into the sentences passed by military
General jSclieucIl denied that men
had been called up because of their
allegiance to a political party. He
added, however: "Wc certainly call
up those who prove to be agitators."
Free Men for Farm Work
The Canada food hoard is preparing plans for the mobilization of labor for spring seeding operations.
Men familiar with handling horses
will bc specially needed and it is essential that they be secured to work
on thc land. For this reason employers of such labor, in urban centres, will bc well advised to consider
the adoption of co-operative methods of delivery in order t.o free thc
men capable of driving horses and
especially those with farm experience.
The greater the German success
on the battlefield, said Arthur Henderson in a recent speech, the more
remote was world j-jcace; He accepts lhe yiew that ihere can be no
peace undj^-fcermany abandons her
policy ojjSrj-onqtiest and military domination; successes, by encouraging
thc German people to believe in military piracy as a profitable business
undertaking, tend to postpone the
time when this will bc the view of
the German people,
Mr. Henderson, whose position is
becoming more assured as the leader of allied Labor and Socialist forces in Great Britain, has clear ideas
of what is necessary lo safe-guard
the world against a renewal of a
world-wide war. He wants a league
of nations, thc complete democratization of the machinery of government
iii all countries, limitation of armaments, and the abandonment of all
plans of economic boyrVilting.
These arc higlily desirable ends;
and Mr. Henderson has a clear idea
how they can bc obtained. Thc democratic peoples of the world, he says,
can only sheathe thc sword when
lhc German people arc able to induce
"a change of mentality" in their
leaders. Hc assumes, no doubt correctly, that only from the German
people can come thc impulses which
will break the power of the war
lords and fit Germany to belong to
the proposed league of nations; but
how are the German people to he
brought lo this frame of miud? The
peace offensives carried on by Mr.
Wilson, Mr. Henderson and others
may help; but nothing but the actual demonstration by results that
war is a huge and criminal blunder
will complete their enlightenment.
There have been periods in this
war when the German people appeared to bc on thc eve of disillusionment; but in each case they
were enabled to recover their faith
in the efficacy of the "German
sword" by some spectacular achievement in the field. Thc crushing of
Serbia in the fall of 1915; thc overrunning of the larger part of Roumania in 1916; and the Italian successes iu October, 1917, wcrc all
carefully staged for the encouragement of civilian faith in the army;
and now there comes this unresisted
advance inlo the heart of Russia
which has, for the moment at any
rate, renewed thc original lust of
the German pcqple for the conquest
of the world by thc sword.
Until lhcy learn the truth of Mr.
Henderson's statement that such military successes as arc within their
power, merely prolong the war and
postpone indefinitely the peace which
they undoubtedly desire, they will
consent to thc Prussian program of
rapine and piracy. They can only be
taught by experience, which is a
slow process. They will havc to bc
convinced by the progress of events
that thc high hopes based upon their
victories ovcr the disorganized mobs
of Russia were illusory.
This implies lhc continued vigorous, unrelenting conduct of thc war
���and this is the program favored
by Mr. Henderson, who speaks for
Britisii Labor. Mr. Henderson's position is sounder than that of the
Marquis of Lansdowne, who is obviously prepared to yield something
to save thc social order which means
so much to him and his class. Thc
onc sure chance still left for thc
right ending of this war is in thc
rallying of all thc forces of Labor
throughout the allied world to thc
cause with a determination to see It
through. It is becoming increasingly
certain that this support will bc
forthcoming in ample volume.���Manitoba Free Press.
