found It so useful In liis own practice that lie eventually revealed ils
secrets in a cheap hook, and thereby
earned the gratitude of many who,
like Charles Dickon., had learned to
their sorrow what havoc might be
worked by a misplaced dot.
Later, Sir Edward Clarke evolved
a system of rapid writing that came
between shorthand and longhand. Ill

Change  Affects  Animals
Many otherwlsa profitable animals I
are ruined by a change  of environment and management.    All animals
! that dwell long under certain eondl-
I tloas become   homesick when their
: homo is changed,   while time erases
I all outward signs    of dissatisfaction
j and discontentment among such stock
I many never produce    as liberally in
; their now situation.   To obvhte the
: possibilities of these occurrences better treatment must  be accorded the
animals in their new home than wa.
afforded theni before the change.
Cows are very susceptible to thesa
changes and when new stock is purchased give, tlicui much individual attention. Heller quarters, more palat-
I able foods, greater care and some of
I the luxuries of life will do much to
overcome the detrimental effects to
bring them hack lo liberal yielding
again. Animals that are taken from
congenial quarters and placed in a
humble home among stock that U
poorly kept seem to lose their pride
and power ot production. There is
little difference between the feelings
of man-ttud animals and the mor.
humanely the animals arc treated tli"
greater will be the profits derived
from them.

Medicines���Dr. Chase's Kidney-      I
Liver Pills Cured  Him

had tried nearly everything on earth.!
Finally lie consented to try them, and
to his surprise was greatly benefited |
in the first week, and the pains left,,

STOOPING  EXERCISFS
Carefully   Practised   They   Are   Conducive to Health and Grace
Stooping exercises are always con
dlicive to grace. One must he careful,
however, lhat Ilie weight lifted from
the lloor is not too heavy, An old
football or basketball is just tlie right
weight. Tnke position by placing tlie
heels together and the toes at an
angle of forty-live degrees.
Before taking position the. ball must
be placed before you on the lloor. Now
bend, lifting one of the feet anl
stretching its leg straight out back o"
you without a bend of the knee, and
pick up the hall. Tlie knee upon which
you are standing is also kept, perfectly
straight, and there Is no bending oi
its knee.
Tills Is really lhe principal part, of
the exercise, beading the body to pick
up the hall without bending tlie knees
You will Iind it hard work at. I.rat, hut
tlio muscles will soon limber up, and
practised dully or every 'oilier day the
exercise will keep the muscles flexible:
and lu good trim. Pick up the bull ten
times at one exorcise, standing live
times on each leg.
Vegetables as Medicine
Spinach is rich In Iron, and good
fnr anaemic persons, though It should
bo avoided hy those who have any
tendency lo liver troubles. Asparagus
can scarcely he classed lis a medicine, though It Is said to bo good in
cases of palpitation and a sedative la
affections of tile heart. It seems to
lie rarely proscribed in the present
day however.
The properties of French beans aud
carrots are well known, but much of
tho efficiency of the vegetables do-
ponds upon tlie way in which they are
cooked. When they arrive in towns
they havo already lost a great deal
of the vivifying salts they have derived front tlie earth, us well nB a
considerable portion of the life-giving
electricity drawn from tlie sun. Consequently boiling in salt water deprives them of much of tho strength
left to them, whereas cooking by
sleam retains their essential qualities, and ameliorates and, in a measure, restores their primitive essences.

THE   REVIEW,   COURTNEY,   B. C.
16 OF BELGIUM
IS MOST DEMOCRATIC
A   _AN   OF   QUIET   HABITS   AND
MANY ACCOMPLISHMENTS
Has Brought His Country to a Wonderful State of Prosperity Through
Hi.    Keen    Insight and  Executive
Ability���Is Beloved by All Classes.
..Handing supremely unique   union.,
tlie figures who are making history in
the groat wars which will mark a new
era tor Europe, Is Albert, king of tho
Belgians, newspaperman, expert engineer,  lover of  mankind  and  most
democratic of all rulers.
Nobody over heard much of Albert
Leopold Clement Maria Aleinrud before Hint eventful day when ho sent
word to his soldiers at Liege to "hold
out"  against   the  Germans massing
ut      llcrbestal.      Tlio      exhortatl in
breathed such a dauntless, bombastic
assurance that those who mad smiled
grimly and a little sadly as they reflected that tiny Belgium would prove
a iiill.ii for lhe Teuton war liosis.
But Liege surprised    Ihcm, uud Al
hurt, King nr Belgium, whicli Includes
sumo sizable cltlus nnd Is said to en-
Joy more prosperity per capita than
uny other European country, was soon
riding ai Um head of his army of 200,
UIHl men. While directing bin valiant
men lie hits found lime to notify his
representatives in litis country that
the credit of Belgium   is unimpaired
und that nil wheat shippers may send
their grain to Antwerp, with the guarantee of the government that they will
not only lie paid In gold, bul that all
their war risks  will be covered.
Europe, Inst haven of "tlie divine
right of k.ngs," In tlie Occidental
win Id, has long glared impoteiitly at
Albert, King of Belgium, ills casual
democracy, his undoubted business
ability and his manner of dealing with
the Socialists os that tlie Socialists,
cursing most labor conditions, paused
to praise their ruler, has worried them
almost Into prostration. The fact remains that he has brought the country to a wonderful state of prosperity
and tlie stale railroads, under his direct supervision, have become a little
more profitable than any in this couii
try.
There are few things that this accomplished King cannot do or hasn't
done. He tights, rides, swims, shoots
and engages in aviation, engineering
and writing with equal facility. He
was an ordinary newspaperman for a
long time, carrying a police card, visiting police stations and doing what
wouid he known here as "ship news.
Asa reporter, it is said, lie was a
"snappy" worker, who scored many
beats and obtained timely pictures.
Possibly his stay in America ln 1898,
When he little dreamed of being king,
gave him the training necessary to set
a new standard for quids newspaper
work iu Brussels and Antwerp.
King Albert is more titan six feet in
height and has a fair complexion und
golden hair, lie is 39 years old, is
unusually devoted antl'lias three cliii
dren. He is tlie son of the deaf Duke
of Flanders, and it was the mysterious
death of his brother, the Prince of
lluudoin, which made his accession to
the drone possible.
In 1898 he came to Aiiicri:.a, and
spent much time in New York, Washington and the east, went west and
stayed for months in St. Haul, Minn.
While there he studied about every
conceivable industry in tlie country
On his return lie wrote it book about
America, which evidenced the fact
that tills idea of un ideal governme it
was the one liis country had adopted.
Having been a reporter l'or a long
lime, lie saw things keenly and clearly, and being the only reporter who
Is now a king, he has developed a
sense of humor which is suid to be
the dread of his prosaic cabinet ministers and his enemies, none of whom
ever acquired that trait to such a
considerable extent.
The king, who is a great' cyclist
and an extraordinary!)' brave man,
went to the Congo and pierced that
fever ridden country soon after his
accession to the throne. The thing':
ho saw there caused him to sell all o;
his possessions of Belgium In that
region after lie had ameliorated the
conditions under which tlie nutlv.s
lived.
Tlie one desire of the king was ti
ostabjish n merchant marine and
Inter a navy. After lie had reviewed
ine "navy" of Belgium, in Hie first,
days of his relgu he ordered ull of
������the vessels dismantled. They were
wooden hulks, nnd every time '.hey
sppoured ut foreign ports were the
Rource of vast amusement.
The queen, his consort, Is a full
fledged physician, She was Elizabeth,
daughter of the Duke Carl Theodore
of Bavaria, the famous oculist. As
the king is constantly seen about thr;
piers of Antwerp, where he once gathered news for u newspaper, conversing with stevedores, so the queen evidences her democratic spirit by being
seen working in the slums of Brussels.
She has established hospitals in many
phees in Belgium, and is head of an
association of women who strive to
ameliorate conditions under which
hard Working folk live.
Tlie king is an indefatigable worker. He rises at 6 in the morning and
rarely ever ceases work until 5 in the
afternoon. As a mechanical engineer
ho has personally supervised the oper-
Htions of the great state railroads, instilling American lounging ears and
sleeping cars.
The simplicity In which the royal
family lives is remarkable. They
rarely occupy the great palace pre-
ferrlug to Ilve in a villa near by.
Y They r.re both lovers of music and
occupy seat.- in the stalls of the
Belgian opera house, rather than the
��� royal bo:;, ec they may be nearer the
Or: lies Ira.
The private life of tho king is without a stain mui ho hns long been culled the "most respectable ruler." The
royal couplo have three children, two
sons and a daughter, tlio latter being
ii great favorite wllh the people. In a
country the size of Belgium the ruler
becomes a (illicitly known personality
to his Btibjeets und thero Is hardly a
spot In Belgium witli which tlie royal
couple Is not familiar.
Thnt is why Leon Vandarvelte, lho
Socialist lender, newly appointed
minister of slate In Belgium, most
democratic of nil kingdoms, said to ills
comrades the other day:
"het us light now for our king and
country as we have always fought for
the laboring man."
WITH THE ALLIES
NATIVE  TROOPS OF AFRICA  ARE
FIGHTING FOR THE FRENCH
IDEA   IS  WELL   RECEIVED
To Increase Crop Area and Produce
More Employment
A proposal put forward by lhe He-
gina board of trade for very material'
ly Increasing lhe crop urea i.nu output,
lu Western Canada has been very favorably commented on in Winnipeg's
banking and nnnneiul circles. This proposal is embodied in un official circular which Is being widely distributed
und has for Ils Immediate aim the
lulling of a meeting ul some ccnlrul
point in the Canadian prairie west at
whicli tills object shall be discussed
by representatives of the Dominion
and prnvln dnl governments, tlie hiuit-
ness ami producing Interests, us well
as liniiiiclnl Institutions and the railways.
if appears the Regina board of trade
bus imd a definite plan under consideration for somo lime past. This circular points nut that tlie world's greatest need in th. near future must be
food, that ls the opportunity of Canada, which thus will bo able to meet
ils obligations on the tremendous
amounts of capital invested in tlie Dominion during recent years. But l'or
the last co'iple of years the Increase
in area under crop in Western Canada
has not been so great as it should
be under normal conditions of Immigration and cultivation. At tho pres
ont time Canadian cities are full of
unemployed thrown on their own resources through stoppage of railway
construction, city building and the
like. Thousands of these laborers
were engaged in farming operations
before coming to Canada. At the same
time it is estimated that one hundred
thousand heavy horses are now standing idle iu Canada for a like reason.
Tlie Idea then is to get these people
and horses on to the land and a rough
estimate is that several million acres
may rapidly he brought into crop hy
this means, hand values have fallen
and especially some of the over-large
land companies might be willing to
part with some of tlieir holdings on
better terms to the farmer. The object, therefore, of the proposed movement is to turn to good use these
unproductive agencies. In such a
movement, the Kogina board of trade
is assured of tlie hearty and enthusiastic co-operation of Winnipeg financial business interests.
France Stakes Fate on Her Artillery
Th3 French army today claims the
most deadly rapid field guns yet devised and the fate of France and the
fortune of her arms in tills war depend largely on her grey guns and
her artillerymen in pantaloons of
blue. Just as Germany has staked all
on the men, so has France elected to
trust to her fort and field artillery.
Germany has wittingly shut her eyes
to the awful carnage of which the
French guns are capable, hoping to
rush and capture them by infantry.
France is gambling that lier guns will
be able to annihilate any force that
conies within their range. And she is
ready to sacrifice any number of her
own infantry merely to protect her
guns from capture, to keep them In
action.
Which system will win? This is
the question that military experts the
world over are asking as they watch
tlie mighty forces hurled at each other
along the Franco-German frontiers.
Both systems really date back to the
time of the great Napoleon, after having been tried out with varying sue
cess in tlie Franco-Prussian war of
1870 and In tlie ltusso-Japar.ese war of
1905. While the Germans have powerful cannon and the French have wonderful infantry, eacli army has been
built up on directly diverging and
highly specialized lines. The Germans
have admittedly the best massed
troops as the French hnve admittedly
the best artillery.
The quick firing of massed cannon
at close range into large bodies of
troops, and particularly the firing of
these cam on at unexpected points,
made Napoleon master of Europe.���

Very Good Advice
Tlie Soldier: To carry himself
bravely and with honor In every circumstance, remembering that he Is
fighting for the British empire and lor
the betterment of humanity.
The Manufacturer: To keep his factories open, giving employment to as
many as possible.
Tlie Merchant: To sell at a fair
margia of profit, not taking advantage
of the hysteria of the moment.
The Employee: To serve his employer honestly and well and by his
efforts keepifig open the position left
vacant by someone at the front.
Everybody: To be cheerful, hopeful and happy; to forget their own
troubles in seeking to help t.e less
fortunate; to prepare for every contingency, yet without losing ��� y particle of faith in the magnificent future
of Canada and to be British, first,
last and always.
The above advice Is from the Vancouver Sunset.   It   _ to the point,

Black and Yellow Soldiers Who Live
Under  the  French  Flag  Are  Now
Rendering Valiant Service���Are Vet-
orans of Previous Wars.
No troops fighting under the Tricolor have resisted more desperately tlio German advance than have the
Turcos. ou at least ono occasion
their charge put to utter rout nn opposing body of Germans, on another
occasion they wero able to got close
to the German lines before it was discovered that thoy were enemies, their
khaki Uniform having deceived the
Germans, who thought it was tlie dull
grey of their own men. In charging
home they havo exhibited an Impetuosity that quite equals the best French
traditions and there seems every reason lo believe that when properly led
they will be among the most valuable
Soldiers that can be employed ugainst
the common foe. Tlie Turcos are the
native black and yellow troops of
Africa who live under the French Hag.
Many of them are of Arab blood antl
to fight is ns natural for them as -a
eat. Moreover, France, like Britain,
has employed native troops for two
generations to put down risings of
liostilo natives and tho Turcos will
havo more right to call "themselves
veterans than any of the soldiers
lighting lu tho kaiser's army.
Nor is tills tho first time they have
been employed on European soil. In
tlie Franco-Prussian war, France called upou some of her legions from Algiers and if she had called upon more
of them It is possible that the war
would have had a different ending. At
Wisenhurg the Turcos drove back the
German infantry with heavy loss, and
under McMahon at Worth they hac.
ed their way through the solid German ranks. Although they were not
then fighting for their fatherland the
French blacks displayed all the qualities necessary in a soldier. Since then
they have been brought closer to
France. The policy of the French gov-
ernm-nt has been to impress the natives in her colonies with tlie mag
niilcence and lmportancj of the
French nation. It is only a few
months ago that, in pursuance of this
wise policy, the French war office
brought several companies of Sene-
gamblans to Paris. It was said that
tho Idea was to show tlie citizens of
France what magnificent specimens of
manhood were to be found in tho
French colonies. The real reason for
the visit was to impress the native
troops with the magnificence of
France.
Their appearance excited a tremendous furore. They became society
pets, were taken everywhere, shown
everything, and honors were showered upon them. Naturally enough,
when/ they went home they loudly
sounded the praises of the French
people, and are said to have aroused
great? enthusiasm among the entire
native population. It is partly as a
result of this enthusiasm that from
Dahomey, Algeria, Senegamblr, Morocco, French Guinea and tlie French
Congo have come to the French war
office requests from thousands and
tens of thousands of natives who
desire the privilege of going to France
and repelling the German invader.
Thinking, as most of us do, of the
incomparable extent of British colonial possessions, we lose sight of the
fact that in Africa alone the French
flag files over more than 30,000,000
people. This is a tremendous reservoir, upon whicli France may draw
for years, should the war last that
long.
How many thousands of drilled
black and yellow troops France could
place in the field is not konwn. The
army decree of December, 1900, undoubtedly contemplated the use of ths
native troops in Europe. By that
order the French colonial army was
reorganized, and while it was stated
that tlie organization was chiefly for
the defence of the colonies, It wai
provided that these troops might as
called upon for service in any part of
tlie world where French interests
were at stake. When tho French
brought the Turcos and sphnsl to Europe In 1870, there was vory general
criticism ot the act, based upon the
grounds that there was something
barbarous in the idea of pitting black
men against whites. It was pointed
out that the success of the blacks was
a disaster to be guarded against oven
more than their failure. If they wero
taught that they could defeat one
race of white men, they might become
seized of the idea that they could also
defeat any other race, and might even
turn ;. ainst France.
Tills idea was put forward again
and again In the course of the war
between Russia and Japan and we
were told that the victory of the Japs
had fired all Asiatics with a spirit of
militarism that boded 111 for their
European rulers. There is also the
objection raised that nearly all the
black and yellow troops that could
be put in tlie field by France and Britain are Mohammedans and that to
permit them to slaughter Christians
of one race would be a mere incitement for them to slaughter those of
another nation. Britain, however, who
probably- knows more about the problem of governing Mohammedans
than all the rest of the nations put
together, has come to the conclusion
that the kaiser Is a more dangerous
foe at the present time than any Mali-
dl, and will place some of her Indian
army in the field. The Sikhs and the
Ghoorkas have already proved their
valor and their devotion to the British flag and soon they -111 be light
ing side by side with the French natives.   After the problem constitute!

Some idea of the difficulty the contractors have hud to contend with
may be gained from tlie fact that, in
addition to constructing an entirely
new plant for the work, they had to
face the problem of construct'ng a
bridge which has no equal in bridge
construction, with an untried equip
ment and a new organization. Under
those circumstances the difficulties of
constructing an ordinary bridge
which would have been great, were
considerably increased by the unusually stringent specifications governing the work and the iinprecedent.id
size of its members.

To All Citizens
The Hereford Times, under the

all loyal people throughout the empire. These words may well be cut
out and kept in a prominent place
in every home and business office:
First    and    for_nost���Keep    your'
head.   Be calm.   Go about your ordinary business quietly and soberly.    Uo
not indulge In excitement or foolish
demonstrations.
Secondly���Think of others more
than you are wont to do. Tli ink of
your duty to yoiir neighbor. Think of
the common weal.
Try to contribute your share by doing your duty in your own place and
your own sphere. Be abstemious and
economical.   Avoid waste.
Do not store goods and create an artificial scarcity to tlie hurt of others.
Remember that It Is an act of mean
and selfish cowardice.
Do not hoard gold. Let it circulate
Try to make things easier, not more
difficult.
Remember those who are worse oil' I

Canada and the Empire
The determination nf the people
of Canada to semi one hundred
thousand men to the asssstance of
the Motherland nnd the Allies is
splendid, find in itself i.s a blow
against Germany, The first body
of men, numbering thirty thousand
men, are now in England, and the
next detachment of sixteen thousand men i.s to leave in December or
January, The remainder are to
leave in (hafts of ten thousand ns
they are equipped. Verily tlie cubs
are rushing up to the aid of the
British Lion. But this is not
enough even, and in the east there
is a strong feeling gaining ground
that double the number of men
should be sent; if the authorities
should decide to do so, there will
be no lack of recruits for the second
hundred thousand. As it is, every
city is feeling sore because it has
not been called upon for more men
than were taken. There could lie
no more inspiring times iu which
to live, and there is no flag under
whicli to dwell that can compare
with the dear old Union Jack, torn
to shreds by age and struggle, but
still flying proudly and bravely, a
challenge to the world.
The Best Defensive
Is An Ardent Attack
In chess, in play, in war, nnd in
business, the best defensive is au
ardent attack. Leadership and
success are not mere mailers of
position and resources. They nre
matters of spirit. The spirit of
leadership and success shows itself
in aggressive actiou. In Cauada
eventual leadership uud success in
manufacturing, wholesale and retail enterprise, will belong to those
who push forward now nnd always,
Those who seek merely to conserve
their position become stationary
and expose themselves to the danger of ultimate destruction, These
are lhe lessons nnd facts of history.
The occupation of new fields of
trade, and the winning of new
customers are achieved at the least
cost of money and time by tlie
adoption of a strong, constantly
maintained and prudent policy of
advertising in the public press.
Maintenance of attack wears down
resistance.

PRESS COMMENT
When Britain has crushed German militarism, Canada will enter
oi_a period of prosperity such us
she has never had before. To
those with a little money there will J
be a thousand opportunities of
making large amounts.

Fresh Air
There is throughout the civilized
world au increasing knowledge of
the value of sunlight and of fresh
air. Benjamin Franklin, in 1754
wrote "Physicians have discovered
that fresh air is beneficial to those
who are ill. Perhaps in 100 years
they will find it does uot hurt those
who are well." It has taken over
the century prophesied by Franklin
but at last boards of health, bureaus
of charity, trustees of schools, commissions ou housing, intelligence
bodies iu all phases of civic life
urge the need of securing all possible sunlight and  fresh air.���Ex.

Fascinations of War
War has ils n\\a fascinations, illusions nnd satisfactions, otherwise
metl would nol go lo war so readily
as they do, Ii is not nil a matter
ol cold -blooded slaughter, i>i Hie
several millions of men now under
anus in Europe, each waiting for
his opportunity to kill or be killed,
the greal majority are fighting for
no personal reason. It is safe to
say that of the small Minority who
could give au intelligent reason
why   they   are   fighting,  most of
Ihem leal ned the reason since, not
before, they ��� cut to war. They
were not consulted about the war
at all. Mosl of those who are killing each other with such zest have
no quarrel with lhe men tht-y are
killing. Under normal conditions
their instincts would lead them to
heli' rather than to injure. But
the spirit of war changes all a man's
notions of social relationship. The
mau with whom you would have
shared your crust and your sympathy today as a fellow mortal becomes tomorrow an enemy to be
killed at sight, not only without
pity, but with a certain element of
relish and satisfaction, not because
he has done anything lo earn your
hatred but just because war [is
what it is.
Fritz Krisler i.s one of the world's
greatest violinists, the world's
greatest in the opinion of some.
He is described as the most refined
of artists and the kindest of men.
He was preparing for another tour
of the world when the war broke-
out He joined his Austrian regiment at once and went to the front.
He saw some hard service at Lem-
berg, and was finally sent to the
hospital with an injured leg, having been run over iu a charge by
Cossacks. He has given the world
some of his impressions and experiences. The moment he put the
uniform on, he says, all that Was
artist in him was swept aw.iy. He
felt the soldier all over. The man
whose mission and privilege it was
to charm the world with the witeh-
of his ail, went forth rejoicing in
tire work of slaughter. "More
beautiful and thrilling music I have
never heard," he writes, "than the
hurrahs of the troops at the moment when they broke through the
lilies of the enemy. . ��� when
one lights in the midst of such
troops, all souls elated by the same
eiilhitiasiu,   and when   oue   daily
witnesses such   examples of   self
sacrificing heroism, oue   feels rejll
\ .tinted ami invigorated."
Apparently ii mattered not to
Krislei lhat history Would hold his
country responsible for having pri ���
eipitaled the greatest calamity that
ever afflicted the world. He had
nothing to do with causes or consequences. As a soldier il was h s
duty to light when somebody gave
the command, and as a soldier he
could give himself up to the elemental emotions aroused by the conflict
without any reference to questions
of right or wrong. Was liernhatdt
right aftei all in speaking of "the
inevitableness, the idealism and '.he
blessing of war?" Listen to Richard I,e Gallienne?
War '
I abhor,
And yet how sweet
The sound along the inarching
street
Of drum and fife; and I forget
Wet eyes of widows, and  forgel
Broken old mothers, aud the
whole
Dark butchery without a soul,
Who are the great artists, the
Krislers, or the lifers and drummers? Is humanity really out of
the jungle, or is our boasted civilization merely a dream?-Woodstock

Letter to the Editoi
Editor Review.
Dear Sir,-.Occasionally there-
appears in your columns exhor-
tions to the public to patronize
home production aud our home
merchants. Now, if those producers and merchants were doing
what they should the exhortations
would be all right, but while the
present methods of business prevail
it i.s useless, people cannot and will
not pay our home dealers oue third
more for goods than they can get
the same for elsewhere.
To illustrate, I wanted a certain
piece of merchandise, and went to
a local dealer for it, and was asked
six dollars for the article in question, one dollar more than I ha.l
ever known :.f (o be, consequently.
I did not take it. but looked up a
mail order catalogue aud found it
advertised for three dollars and
seventy-five cents, I sent for it and
had it delivered for four dollars and
twenty-three cents, saving one
dollar and seventy-seven cents

Mr. W. J. Spears, of London,

Pacific Railway between Winnipeg
and Prince Rupert with a view of
obtaining for those intert. ted 111

natural resources of the territory
opened up by the new transcontinental railway in Britis. Columbia.
"In their scenic beauty alone,"
said Mr. Spears, "these regions
have a wonderful asset. The valleys are wide, allowing the full
ma'esty of the peaks lobe realized.
In these valleys are areas of gently
sloping land of a sod admirably
suited for agriculture, ln their
richness they reminded mc of the
Nile. Dairying and mixed farming have a bright future there.
Berries of all kinds grow wild in
the greatest profusion and the
flowers are sbnilar in their beauty
to those found in Switzerland.
There is ample lumber to assure
the success of the saw-mills which
are rapidly making their appearance at various points. Mineral
wealth is also being developed,
while the rivers teem with fish.
The trout iu Northern British

size and fighting nature makes him
a king among fish. While fishing
on the Nechako River, I came upon
a party of Indians. They had just
landed four giant sturgeon. The
largest of these was nine feet long,
and weighed 300 pounds. Canada
has no need to go Russia for its
caviar when such sturgeon as these
can be caught-"

From former haunts that germ has

"I can easily do that," said Sunningley. "I propose that Barbara, as the

A True Story
Everybody knows that the quality of
reliability is the most valuable asset
that man can have, and how rare it is.
The man who sticks to his job under
all circumstances is the man who
makes the nation. An illustration of
this fact lies in the story that was
told about a mau who onee owned a
carrier pigeon���one of those pigeons
whicli, no matter where it went, could
always be relied upon to come back.
This gentleman was talking one
day with a friend of his and ho said:
"What do you suppose happened to
ihat pigeon of mine? I was talking
with a fellow the other day about
him, and made the remark that this
p.geon always came back no matter
where he went, and he said that he
did not believe it. He said that ho
could take that pigeon to Philadelphia
and he would be willing to bet me
$100 that the pigeon would not come
hack inside of twenty-four hours. I
told him that I would take nim up.
Well, sir, he took the pigeons down to
Philadelphia, and what do you suppose he did?"
"I can't imagine," said the friend.
"Didn't he let him loose in Phtladoh
phia?"
"Oh yes, he ..'I him loose: but he-
fore he let him loose he (lipped tlie
pigeon's wings."
"Well, that, was too bad,"   said tlie
time of eclipse, this society has grown
to enormous proportions. There are
chapters all over Canada, and in the
United States there are 400,000 British women enrolled under its name.
A large number of women were
deeply interested, also, in the Canad
ian branch of the British Red Cross
Society. This was organized in 1807
hy Lieut.-Col. George Sterling Kyer-
son, M.D., of Toronto, and was the
first colonial branch of the society in
any country, it will be remembered
that during the war Dr. Ryerson acted
as British Red Cross Commissioner in
South Africa. A great many branches
were formed in Canada, chiefly in the
I provinces of Quebec nnd Ontario. Women's committees worked industriously, sending supplies to the soldiers,
and the button with tlie badge of tho
society was to be seen worn by such
well-known Montreal women as Mrs.
Ii. B. Yates wife of Dr. II. B. Yates,
and Miss Roddick, sister of Sir Thos.
Roddick, who were active in the work
of the society.
If the women of Canada were ready
then, there is every evidence that the
present emergency will find them
even better equipped, and as enthusiastic���if not more so���in their loyal
efforts to do their share, in their own
way towards helping the empire-

Antwerp, a City Rich in History
Antwerp, the city to which the Bo.
giuii royal family have removed to escape the German advance ou Brussels,
is not only one uf the oldest Cities ill
Europe, but lias mnny times played
an Important part in the making o(
stirring history.
Antwerp appears in history as carl}
as the seventh century. A cental,
later it was an important port and.
market town. In lhe twelfth centurj
it was commercially prosperous and
under tne rule of Hie dukes of Bur
gundy, who at times aspired not only
to the throne, of France hut harbored
designs on tlie crown of England. In
the fifteenth century Antwerp was one
of the most important marts in Eur
ope, the entering point for English
and continental trade, in tlie six>
teenth century, under the rule ol
Charles V. it was the seat of the llan��
seatic League and lhe money depot ot
Europe. In 1684-5 it was besieged,
taken and ruined by tho Duke of Alva,
In 1794 the French took the city and
restored its prosperity. Napoleon the
Great attempted lo make it rival London.
Antwerp, located on the Scheldt,
having an outlet to the sea safeguarded by the British and French fleet and.
being strongly fortified on the land
ward side, is regarded as impr. .-.cable,
hence its selection at this time bj
King Albert as a place of refuge from,
which to direct the Belgian resistance
to tho German forces. The city's
transit, and other commerce of lata
years has run well up over $1,000,000
a year. It has a large industrial quarter ami  is a  diamond  centre.
The government of Antwerp is administered hy a burgomaster, assisted by live assessors and a municipal
council of 39 members. The city's annual budget Is about $7,000,000. :ts
debt is $60,000,000. Water and gas
are supplied by private corporations.
The city has sixteen daily newspapers, six in French,and ten in Flemish. There are many notable hospitals
and educational institutions, two
theatres and noteworthy ecclesiastical
and secular buildings among them th.
Cath^Tral of Notre Dame, one of tlie
Bights of Europe, the Hole', de Villa
and the museum of art, where are
priceless paintings by Rubens, Winders, Van Dyck, Van Eyck, Mending,
Matys and others. Many "old masters" among painters, notably Rubens,
were natives or residents of Antwerp

It's tears that keen the human soar

No man or woman ever shed honest tears without seeing better anil

heart becomes "too full for utterance."
And it is at such a time that, tears

When Animals Sleep
Littlo  people  in  the nature study
class will be  interested in knowing
the interesting bat its of sleep which
are followed by dillerent animals.
Elephants .sleep standing up. when
in a herd a certain number will always stand watch while the others
sleep, for the big, powerful beasts are
timid and cautious at night and will
not go to sleep unguarded.
Horses have a special arrangement
about tlieir knees enabling lliein to
sleep on tlieir feet, though they also
sleep lying down.
Hals sleep head downward, hanging by their hind claws.
Birds, with few exceptions, sleep
with tlieir heads turned tailward over
the back and the beak thrust beneath
the wing.
Storks, gulls and other long-legged
birds sleep standing on one leg. (
Ducks sleep    on open  water.    To ,
avoid drilling ashore, they keep pad-'
tiling  wllh   one   foot,    thus   making
them move in a circle.
Foxes and wolves sleep curled up.!
their noses and the soles of their feet
close together and blanketed by their
bushy tall.
Lions,   tigers     and     eal     animals
stretch themselves out tint upon the
side. Their muscles twitch and
throb, Indicating that they are light
and restless sleepers.
Owls, iu addition to their eyelids,
have a screen, that they draw'side-
wuys across their eyes lo shut out
the' light for they sleep in tlie daytime.

The error of a minute may be the

Impatience and human pride have
destroyed or misled more souls than
deliberate wickedness.
Selfishness puts away friends: idleness stops success in life; carelessness antl indulgence break down
health.
To do our work conscientiously
and cleverly is not sufficient. We must
do it with cheerfulness and vigor.
If we examined our own faults at
tentlvely we should have less time to
detect and more inclination to pardon
those of others.

A   Murdar   In   1870  Avenged   in   1914
An exceedingly sad story comes
from tho front.
During the Franco-German war of
1870 the Germans, by their invasion
of Alsace, spread untold miseries
among the villagers, whose property
they claimed. A certain well-to-dn
farmer named Haul'f became so much
enraged by the plunder of his well-
stocked farm that he shot dead two
German soldiers. He was immediately taken outside his house aud executed. In vain his wife begged for
his life. She afterwards found their
little boy crying on the dead body ot
his father.
"Mother," the cliild said, "when I
grow up I shall avenge father and
shoot Germans."
The widow, finding further abode
in Alsace under German rule unbearable, emigrated to Belgium and settled near Yise, where she took another farm.
Her boy became a man, the father
of a family, including two boys, and
l'or forty-two years his mother shared with him and lier grandsons happy family life at Vise. Then came the
present war, antl the German troops
arrived in Vise.
The Belgian inhabitants had just
before destroyed a bridge over the
Meuse, For this they were severely
punished by destruction of tlieir
houses. Farmer Haul, witnessed
these outrages, and beside himself
with distress, and remembering his
promise over his father's body, Bitot
one German invader dead. At once
a number of soldiers seized him and
dragged also from his house his two
sons.
All three were placed against a wall
and summarily executed.
It was thus the fate of the poor
widow to see her husband, her son,
and her two grandsons shot before
her eyes.

approached, but after they liad resolved on doing it they were as far
off as ever, for who would do it?
Both parable and proverb have immortalized themselves In history
When the Scottish nobles met at Stirling in a body they proposed to take
Spence, the obnoxious favorite of
James II., and hang him and so get
rid of him.
"Ah," said Lord Grey, "that's very
well said, but who'll bell the cat?" .
"That will I," said the black Earl
Angus. He undertook the task, accomplished it and was called "Archibald
:iell the Cat" until his dying day.���

politely.
"Oh," came in an offhand way from
the aspirant to literary fame, "1 think
of doing something on the line of 'Les

It happened, on a three-cent ear
line. The car was crowded. A man
got on. Mc bought a quarter's worth
of tickets (eight). The conductor
took one aud handed him the others.
"Tickets," called the conductor as he
came around for fares again. The unsophisticated one gave him another.

handed over his last ticket, saying,
Py himmel, I puy no more tickets! i
