Through Carelessness
Each year many lives are lost    by

consequently many lives might be
saved by the exercise of caution.

first essential iu the preventing oi

Last slimmer many women did not
put Up '.hur regular supply of homemade preserves; and bitterly thev regretted it. They became seared at
what they called lhc high price of
sugar. When sugar reached 7 1-.!
cents a pound, Ihey let the strawberries and cherries go by. When
sugar sold at 8 cents and 8 1-2 cents,
they permuted the luscious penches,
pears, plums and apples lo rot on the
ground.
But never again. This summer will
see a genuine, old .time revival iu
homemade preserving; because the
women of Canada -low realize what a
foolish extravagance il was to do
without preserves; especially when
the Increased cost of pulling them ur,
is infinitesimal,
As a innttei of faet, every woman
can prove with her lirst loi of
Strawberries, '.hat the increased cost
of sugar i-. surprisingly small.
Turning back the files ol papers
publishing mnrkel prices, wc luul
that in 101.', 1013 Mc\ 1914. ���,, ,,
the outbreak of war the avcrag
price of granulated sugar was 5 1-2
cents a pound. Today the best gran
���dated sugar retails at 8 1-2 cents.
I his is an average of 3 cents a
pound for the whole of lhe country.
A quart jar of preserved berries
or fruit, requires but half a pound
of sugar; so that the increased cost
of preserving, due to the increased
cost of sugar, is only 1 1-2 rents a
quart, compared with llie cosl oi
preserving before the. war when
sugar was unusually cheap,
Now is thc lime for the. women of
Canada lo come gallantly to the aid
of the counlry, and help to conserve
our food supplies, The fruit crop
lhis year promises lo be a record
one, bolh in quality and quantity.
foreign markets being closed because of thc shortage in transportation, it rests almost entirely with our
hoiiicniakers as to whether this crop

profit or a complete loss.
Willi the home pantries lilled
.villi delicious jariis, preserves and
jellies; with these delicacies served
for dessert instead of pies and
cakes enormous quantities of wheat
will bc released for the Iroops In
Trance and for tlle starving children
in Belgium.
A careful consideration of the
above facts will show to the Canadian housewife that sugar is not too
high for preserving profitably; tbat
llie increased cost of sugar has not
materially increased the cost of
homemade preserves; and thai preserving i- both an ccoiiom,. ami

Enemy Aviators Afraid
Captured Flier Relates Why He Slid
to Earth Instead of Behind Own Lines
German aviators are being told by
Iheir superior officers that capture by
the French or Americans means torture. Evidence comes from tbe front
of the enemy's growing lack of air
morale, and the fear with which he
enlcrs colnbat. Near lhe headquarters of thc Lafayette Kscadrille, Aviator Cailcr, French flyer of au esea-
drille working in conjunction wilh
the American birdmen, attacked .1
German biplane. Twenty-five well
placed shots wounded the enemy pilot in ihe arm, The latter, obsessed
by fear of capture became so fright
cned that he almost losl control or
his machine He hurriedly and ungracefully pinned tlov, 11 to the mar
est point and landed. It wns behind
the   French   lines.       He   could     have
easily niaiiocuvcrcd in such a manner as to reach the German lines in
safety.
Tiie story of the German airman's
fear developed -when he was questioned by bis French and American
captors, lie explained that, during
tbe combat, his machine gunner bad
bidden in the body of the biplane
loo much afraid lo look at the attacking French machine. before,
leaving lluir aerodrome both had
been impressed thai they would be
doomed to hideous physical agony if
captured. They were accordingly
relieved when told lhat a prison camp
with belter food than tlicy might expect in Germany was the worst they
could expect.

Japan's Shipping
For American Steel
Arrangements  Under Way Wbeieby
U. S. Will Secure Trans-
port F'acilities
"The Japanese government is making arrangements with the United
Stales government whereby Japan
will get steel in exchange for ships.
'Ihc first part of ihe agreement will
be that the Uniled States expedite
shipments of steel for Japanese shipyards, and in return Japan will scud
about 50,000 tons of ships to carry
I niled States iroops and war material lo Europe,
"A further effort will be made by
Japanese ship builders to induce Gen.
Goethals to order ships for the emergency llcel from Japan. These shipowners say lhcy can complete steel
steamers and have them in commission in four months if they gel the
steel. American producers have been
quoting Japanese ship builders as
IukIi as 12 cents a pound for fabricated steel plates. Deliveries are slow
and Japanese construction is held np
by shortage of plates. If the shipping board places orders and rushes
deliveries of steel, the. plentiful supply of cheap labor will enable Japan
to build i0,Q0.-i,in steamers in a few
months at a price conslderahlj below
the presenl market price."
The same authority says that Japan is sending more warships to the
Mediterranean and the Atlantic war
zones.

POTENTIALITY OF AIRPLANE FOR

FUTURE OF THE AIRPLANE AND THE SUBMARINE
It Is Very Difficult To Set Limits To Effectiveness of Airplanes
Used In Large Numbers ln Destroying Enemy Gun-Making
And Munition Plants, Paralyzing Military Activity
Cannot Push Through
Foe Lines Faster
Why  Advances of Britisii   Are   l-or
Small  Distances
"Why is it afler British furies have
broken llie German lines, as at
Hiilleeoiirt, .Messines or Vimy Ridge,
llicy don't push on through?"
i Ine of England's forcmosl slrnlo-
gists was asked lhis question. Here
is Iiis answer;
"The whole process of this war is
a mailer of lines of romniuiiicalioii.
I he reason lhe Brilish offensive
seems to nibble a hit of ihe .linden-
burg hue In the north and ihen
Strike a few days later far lo the
south, is ihe vital necessity uf .-s
tablishing communicating lines and
of consolidating positions.
"When the Hriiish move forward
after a terrible artillery preparation
which has lefi li ti Ic of ihc enemy
trenches but powder and corpses,
Ihey don't lind many Germans there
���not live ones al least, The Germans know a day or so in advance
when a big push i.s coming. Thev
can't help it. They fall back lo
llieir reserve lines iu the rear, ami
consolidate llieir guns and nu n,
leady for a counter-attack.
"'lhe way to slop ihis counterattack and hold the advantage wc
have won is to rush up our heavy
guns and be ready to cut I hem to
pieces when they iry to 'come hack.'
"1 have seen 45 miles of railway
laid in three days. Our engineers at
the front work nighi and day and
this is largely why, when wc once
get hold of a piece of ihe Hindenburg
line, we hold on to il. Bulldog tenacity, the papers call il, but it's
urililary knowledge and foresight
just as much.
"Furthermore, when the Germans
feel sure, that a certain spol at which
the British havc been hammering is
about to be attacked, they rush, their
reserves and guns ovcr to back up
that particular sector. lhal i.s lire
time for us to strike somewhere else
while they are using all iheir energy
lo slop us at another poinl."
I he unprecedented achievement of
the I'n iu h aeronaut, Sergcanl Gallois
in wiping mn single-handed _a large
ma tiun of the Krupp munition works
'���a I ssen in Germany, is one of lhc
mosl notable adventures in thc history of the war, There was nothing
irc'i'li nlal ill his sue. i ss. He knew
whal he had to do; lie planned his
mule and stuck lo it; hc Hew across
Essen and back, dropping bombs on
the works; aud he returned lo the
spol wlicni e he had slarled si veil
hours before, The lotal distance coveted during lhat interval was near!)
four hundred and six!- seven miles.
fortunately he was left unwouiided,
nud practically uninjured by his
oln ntiotts adventure,
^ Interesting as the ai hicvemi nl of
Gallois is, ii is still more important.
If shows, as uo'previous incident has
done, ilu- potentiality of file airplane
for military purposes. If one aviator can Ily so far wilhout injury and
il. so nm li harm to the enemy by
dropping a few bombs on the most
important spol in Germany, il is dif-
ficull to set limils to what might bc
iiliiiveil by a fi w dozens of such
men. 11 seems altogether likely jusl
mJw lh.it Gallois will have scores,
perhaps hundreds, of ambitious imitators, many of whom will lose llieir
lives, Inn some of whom will succeed.
It should be borne in mind lhat to put
the Krupp gun-making and munition-
i inking establishment out of business
Mould go far to paralyze the military
activity and destroy the military efficiency of the German empire.
For some time past there has been
developing a disposition among tnili-
lary and naval experts to institute
comparisons or contrasts between the
future of thc airplane and that of the
submarine. In a recent public address, Secretary Baker of the War
Department of the United Slates
made lhe. announcement lhat "American slill nud ingenuity, American
scientific knowledge, and lhe inexhaustible resources of supplies shall
all be drawn upon, and we shall contribute io llic unquestionable supremacy of the air," so that the efficiency
of military operations may be maintained. Some months ago Admiral
I'l-rry, of North Pole fame, suggested
that small but swift seaplanes might
be used effectively as destroyers of
rubmarincs by housing them on a
"mother" warship, from whose deck
they mighi make short but Swill
(lights lo search for submarines and
drop bombs ou them wilh fatal effect, even when submerged. As both
the airplane and llie. submarine are
recent entrants into the field of warfare, it will be increasingly interesting to' watch iheir future evolution,

behind me, close lo mc. I looked
around and saw a man's arm and

straight up inlo ihe air, and then I
saw a troop of mounted police issue
from the Goncharnaya with naked
sabers and charge at the crowd. Suddenly a shot came from the Cossacks

According To Code Of The 1 fugue Convention And Subscribed
To By Cerniany, Belligerents Have Nol An Unlimited Righl
To Choose Means To Harm The Enemy
0 	
"It is a legal and loyical principle
that ordinary penal laws may be applied lo acts of war lhat are nol justified l,y international lav,." said
Monsieur Carton De VViart, Belgian
minister of justice, rcj lying to au in-
(|uir\ by Ihc Associated Press ns to
his opinion of the proposed interallied high court for the trial of ol
lieers, soldiers and individuals guilty
of atrocities in this war.
"lhc Hague convention," continued Mr. Ue W'iart, "snys that 'belligerents have not au unlimited right to
choose means lo harm the enemy.1
All civilized countries admit thai
acts perpetrated during a state of
war and which arc not technicallj
'acts of war' may bc punished hy lhe
ordinary civil courts or the military
courts, whether they are crimes or
mere offenses. In facl, the. 'German
manual of laws of war' mentions _
considerable number of prohibitions
as, for instance, those regarding the
employment of certain weapons and
the  killing of  wounded  soldiers.
"'Whoever should violate those
prescriptions,' the manual says, 'shall
be responsible to his country, li
he is taken prisoner, military penalties could be applied to him.'
"lhc same principle is stated in instructions of the United States of
1863, which form a wonderful
of human principles.
" I hese instructions say
crimes committed in time of
may be punished according to ordinary penal laws, nol nnly by the
army to which the criminals belong,
but also by the army by which they
are captured,
"Under the circumstances it is obvious," the minister continued, "that
Germans who have killed, have stolen, have sei fire lo buildings without
necessities of war, may be judged I���������

allied countries. So ue applications
of this principle have already been
made. If lie guilty frill into our

obliged to judge him, but let us nor

The Mysterious "Dora"
Scotland 'l ard would appear I
governed in tbese days by a mytical
lady who always manages to keep in
the background, says the London
Chronicle. Several inquirers have
been informed of late that "Dora"
makes il impossible for their requests
to be granted. "Dora" is always iu
evidence. She wmi'l let you do lhis
and she objects io lhat, but always
quite politely. Who is Dora? Who is
she, lhal bold,' bud men condemn
her? iin secret leaked out recently,
She is nothing more dreadful than
the official name lor lhc Defense nf

Conserving Food !n Britain
War    Savings    Committee    Report
Shows People  Voluntarily
Cutting   Down   Kations
Premier Lloyd George has written
io ihe chairman of tin   national war
savings committee thanking him for
ihe. committee's  efforts and    paying
tribute to its success in effecting f ;
icon.nny. Mr. Lloyd George adds
that he has every hope "lhat tin people of Great Britain will be. able tn
claim that .Ihey accomplished of their
own free will what lhe people oi
other counlries could only achieve b>
compulsion."
What the committee has done may
be illustrated by the figures relating to the reduction iu ihe consumption of bread. Thus, in lire Padding-
ton district of London, the consumption of bread dropped by -'.* to 3D per
ccnl. in two months. In VVillesden
bread salts per week in May amounted to 481,839, in June tiny dropped to
380,4(14 pounds. Brighton is eating
JO per ceil), b ss bread, and Reading
25 per cent. less. Portsmouth reports lhat 180,540 pounds less bread
per week was sold in May, and a further reduction of 78,840 pounds in
June.
These are. only some figures chosen
at random from reports collected by
the committee, but they show Ihe
thoroughness of the.work it hat done. TH-5 OODTtTENAY RBVIEW
