more particularly when lie saw an unexpected gleam of gold in Osborne's

to engage in a work of considerable

Dwarf Girl Made to Grow
A physician of Itochesler, Ind., has
come into fume locally by the treatment of Harriet Ross, 15, of that city,
who has been dwarfed since birth.
The girl, who is the daughter of Air.
and Mrs. Omar Itoss, is unusually
bright. She was greatly grieved by
childish taunts about her size, and
pleadings to her parents to take her to
specialists resulted in trips to lar_.e
cities, where the best medical aid was
enlisted but to no avail.
Then her ease was turned over to i
local physician, who tliscoveerd that
her dwarfed condition was duo to the
fnet that she. was minus the thryohl
glands that scientists know to be responsible for the growth of the human
family. Then dangerouu operations
were started, the physician- making
regular injections of ihryold serum
taken from the glands of healthy
cheep, and uow, after several months'
treatment, the girl has actually grown
several inches, . Bluing at such rapid
strides that it is expected nlie will ultimately be of medium height.

Ascension Island Ranks as a Man-o'-
Ascension Island, situated about
midway between Brazil and tlie Congo, is a valuable half-way house on
the Cape route, its position ou the
main track making it especially useful
as a provisioning place for ships,on
their homeward way,
Physically, Ascension is a desolation of extinct volcanoes and lava
fields, hut the prevailing fresh southeast trade winds make . its climate
very- healthy, and a sanitarium built
on Green Mountain, whicli dominates
tho island, is a refuge for men invalided from the coast of West Africa.
Discovered on Ascension Day, 1601,
(thence ils name), the island was
uninhabited until the British government occupied it as u military station
in 1815, during the confinement of
Napoleon in the island of St. Helena,
80U miles to the south.
Now it is under the direct control
of the admiralty, and is ruler rigid
discipline, being ruled by a resident
naval officer, exactly as if it- were a
man-o'-war anchored in mid-Atlantic,
with a "crew" of about 400 navui
officers and families, seamen, marines and the sturdy Grain Coast
"Hriimen," who aro such excellent laborers and sailors and the best surf-
boatmen in the world.

���  Our National Disease
Caused by Tea and Coffee
Physicians know that drugs will not
correct the evils caused liy tea or coffee and that me only remedy is    to
stop drinking it.

i   "I was a coffee drinker for many
years and often thought that 1 could
not do without it, but after years of
suffering  with" our  national   malady,
I dyspepsia. I attributed it to the drink-
I iug of coffee, nud after some thought,
I determined  to use  Postum for    my
morning drink.   (The effects on the
I system of Hii and coffee drinking are
| very similar, because they each contain the drug, caffeine).
"I had the Postum mude carefully
according to directions on the pkg. and
found it. jusl suited my taste.
"At first, I used it only for breakfast, but I found myself getting so
much better, that I had it at all meals,
and I am pleased to say that 1 have

health is greatly improved.

She liad been in ill health for many

Canadian Fisheries
Fisheries   of  the   Dominion   Are   the
Most Extensive in Whole
The annual report of the department of marine and fisheries emphasises the fact that the fisheries of the
Dominion are the most extensive in
the world. It likewise noted that tha
water in and around Canada contains
tile principal commercial fool fishes
in greater abundance than the
waters of any olher part of the world.
The total marketed value of all
kinds of lish, etc., taken by Canadian
fishermen from the sea and inland
lakes and rivers during the year ended March 31, 1014, amounted to $33,-
This value falls short of that for
the preceding year by $181,716. This
is accounted for by the Sockeye salmon run in Northern British Columbia
being smaller than usual, and the decrease in the value of halibut.
Of this total value the sea fisheries
contributed $29,472,811; while the inland  fisheries  contributed $3,734,937.
The value of the lish catch by provinces was ns follows:
Iiritisii Columbia, $13,893,980; Nova
Scotia, $8,297,626; New Brunswick,
54,308,707; Ontario, $2,074,685; Quebec, $1,850,427; Prince Fdward Island,
$1.-80,447; Manitoba, $006,272; Saskatchewan, $148,002; Alberta, $81,913;
Yukon, $08,2.65.

Huge Air Fleet
Great  Britain   is  Surprisingly   Strong
Strong   in   Matter  of   Aircraft
A letter to the Chicago Herald from
London, contains the information that
Kngland Is far readier than the world
believes in the matter of. aircraft. In
spite of the secrecy thrown around
everything relating to war preparations, it is an open secret in military
circles that the British government
has in its possession a number of
Zeppelins and what are believed to be
far more effective a lot of huge aeroplanes capable of carrying a crew of
21 men, and arnnd with a number of
powerful anti-aircraft guns.
Prior to the war, the British army
aeronautic service placed small confidence ln the Zeppelins and decried
the possibility that they could work
much harm.
During tho recent raid of Cuxhav-
en, the ease with 'which .Zeppelins
were driven oft' by the British seaplanes was pointed to as evidence of
the non-value ot the German crafts.
But the British authorities apparently determined to be as well equipped in every respect as their enemies,
acquiring dirigibles of the German
type. The number of suck dirigibles

Explosive Needles For Zeppelins
The French war office has -now in
operation an invention which seems
to olfe:- an excellent method of combating Zeppelins. The inventor is M.
Antony Jacques, of Grenob'e. The
new weapon consists of a long needle-
carrying a small shell. These needies
are very light, and so is tht shell they
carry. When the needle pierces cloth
or aiiy light substance���and not till
then���it explodes the shell. Fired
against a brick wall it is harmless.
The needles nre so small that a good
quantity can be carried 6- an aero-
lilane. They can be fired from a very
light gun, an'i when once, they strike
a Zeppelin arid explode, they wl)l also
explode the gases contained In the envelope, and so destroy the whole machine. The invention came to the
French war office after careful and
exhaustive experiments made by the
chief of the fire brigade at Grenoble

Contracts For at Least $50,000,000 in
War Supplies  Received
How Canadian Industries are benefitted by the war is seen by the latest
government estimates', which Indicate
that 3,000 factories are busy with orders which total at least $50,000,000.
The prospects aro also that the demands for war material will be greatly iucerused in the future and there
are indications that France and Russia will purchase more heavily in
Canada in the ful life.
The war supplies for which contracts have been let in the Dominion
cover a large range of articles. They
include rifles, bayonets, uniforms,
boots, saddles, truck wagons, ammunition, tents, blankets, and many other
materials necessary to equip an army.
Great orders of shrapnel ^shells have
also been received by a" number of
leading Canadian firms, and one estimate indicates that already 100,000 a
day are being manufactured in the
Dominion with the prospects for an
increased output in the future.
_he soldiers' pay   is   another big
item in tho war expenditure, for which
Ihe Canadian government will have to] s'""^
provide large sums.    To defray tli in |
expense and the others involved as a
result, of the struggle it   is expected
that the militia appropriations cove-ring a period of from April 1 to January 1, of next year, will require $.100,-
000,000.   Should the conflict   last two
years It is believed that the Dominion
will have expended the sum of $210,-
000,000 in assisting the empire In
Another Item whicli is expected to
run into large figuies be,ore the war
ends in the demand for horses. Experience has proved that the life of a
horse on'the battlefield is short and
hence large orders are expected to be
filled in Canada. Beside:; horses,
numerous saddles will be required,
and already the French anil Russian
governments have made heavy purchases here.
lidentinlly and in accents of deep conviction, saitl:
"Every Frenchman, whatever his
politics, is determined upon war to a
successful outcome. If we simply
drive the enemy oul of France we
should have accomplished nothing.
We are not lighting for the reconques:

My Informant, who has had excellent opportunities of forming a considered opinion, added that th- gravity of the situation and the prodlgioua
nature of the struggle ahead were not
under-estimated In Prance, which, he

Heroism and Chivalry
Enemy    Cheers    Brave    Conduct  ot
French Stretcher-bearers
Lo Temps prints a letter written by
a French soldier to his family, which
illustrates hew French    heroism was
.chivalrously recognized by tho    Germans.
"Before Monlnquan, in the Somrne
district," he says, "was a villa whicli
the    Germans    held   strongly,     and
which we vainly tried to storm.   Our
greatest efforts only brought us    to
the enemy's wire entanglements.   At
midnight several of our wounded lay
helpless before the German trenches,
whence it was certain death l'or   us
to try to fetch them.   On the following   inornlng two stretche.'-bearers ���
one belonging lo a religioin order-
left the French lines and coolly approached the German wires, waving

"One of the German officers shook

Assistance of Japan
Japanese Foreign Legion Would Help

The Japanese foreign legion,  now-
being raised voluntarily in Japan to
reinforce    France on the tiring line,

I    It is admitted that the raising of a
