When lie left the train at the Wav-
erly station lie saw her on the platform and she gave him a slight bow,
but he understood that their acquaintance ended there, and was
content. After lunch he walked along
Princess Street and back to the castle. The sky was clear, tlie sun
shone ou the old tall houses, and a
nipping northeaster blew across the
Forth. In spite of its age and modern industry, the town looked
strangely clean, and cold. No smoke
could hang about it in the nippphvg
wind; its prevailing color was granite-grey, The Forth was a streak of
ran indigo, and the hills all around
were a steely blue. Edinburgh was
like no English town; it had an austere half-classical beauty that was
peculiar to itself; perhaps Quebec,
though different, resembled it most
of the all the cities he had seen.
Then he remembered lie had Carmen's packet to deliver, and after
asking a passer-by took a tram ear
that carried him tlirougli the south-
cm quarter of lhe town into a wide
road, lined l.y well-built stone,
houses. Standing in small, neat gardens, they ran back to the open
country, with a bold ridge of moors
in the distance. Foster got down
where he was directed and crossed
the road lo one of tlle bouses. They
were all much alike and he thought

"In a way." said Foster, smiling.

in Graham's hands."

lie took the packet, as it he meant
to write the address on it, and Foster sat .town. The door of the room
was half open and while he waited
Somebody entered the house. Steps
came along tlie hall, and a girl pushed the door hack, and then slopped,
hinking at him in surprise, lie understood this as he saw she was the

"1 didn't know you were coming
here," she said.
"Nm did I, iii a sense," Foster answered with a smile. "I mean I didn't know  il   wns  your house."
"My name  was on the label of llic
bag and rather conspicuous."
"It would have meant nothing if
I had seen ii. Ill facl, I must own
1  don't know it now."
The girl looked puzzled, and Foster explained that lie had come with
a packet, but had merely been given

"Then yon are a friend of Mr.

"Ah!" she said thoughtfully, "do
you mind explaining what yotl mean
by that?"
"Perhaps it's hardly worth while,
but I can't claim that Austin and 1
are particularly friendly. Our business interests  sonieliiues clash."
She was silent for a few moments
and he wondered why both she and
j the man had been curious to know-
how far his acquaintance with Austin went. Then she looked up with
a quick movement, "Newcastle

have no other reason for going
there, it might bc better to post the
Foster was somewhat puzzled. She
had spoken meaningly, as if she
meant to give him a hint.
"The trouble is that I promised
Miss Austin to deliver it."
"You have brought it to Kngland,"
she persisted.    "It will bc safe in the
post "
She stopped with a glance at the
door, and Foster heard a step in the
passage. Then she quietly turned to
the man who had taken the packet.
"I would have missed the train at
Hawick but for tllis gentleman's
help," she said. "Still, 1 did not
know he was coming here until 1
saw him  as  I passed the door."
Thc other, who had looked at her
rather sharply, nodded and gave
Foster the packet.
�� "As there was room enough, I
wrote the new address on the cover."
Foster thanked him and took his
leave, but as the man went before
him to the door the girl made a
"I'ost it," she whispered and turned hack  into  the room.
Aftrr leaving the . hoysc Foster
walked along the road in a thoughtful mood. The girl was apparently
the man's daughter or niece. Their
relative ages warranted the surmise,
and her quick explanation of how-
she came to be talking to a stranger
indicated that she recognized his
authority, while Foster thought she
had been disturbed when she beard
his step. It was strange that she
should urge him lo post the packet,

Wider Implements vs. Tractors
In an address at New Brunswick
Farmers and Dairymen's convention, Director Grisdalc of the Dominion Experimental Farms expressed the opinion that tractors are
not adapted lo use on farms in that
province. Instead, be advocated the
use of larger horse-power machines
with more horses, thus increasing
the production with lhe same
amount of labor. Larger fields
were, he.said, another pressing necessity. The chief trouble with
tractors was frequent breakdowns
and inability to make the grades.
Women have heroine so popular in
the trades in London and other cities of Kngland lhat when the war is

taken will likely havc lo find other

Average and Best
The Difference Between the General
Average Yield and Those Which
Are at the Top
In no line of agricultural work in
Canada is there a greater opportunity to increase production lliail
there is in the improvement of dairy
herds. The average yield of milk
per cow in Canada is only about
4,300 pounds per .-1111111111. Compare
that with individual records of ovcr
2.",00tl pounds of milk in a year and
herd records averaging ovcr 10,000
pounds for each cow, and the great
possibilities for improvement arc at
once, apparent.
The keeping of herd records, commonly known as "cow testing," is
the safest and surest basis for that
intelligent breeding and selection
which, with proper feeding, results
in an improvement iu production
that makes the difference between
the general everage yield and those
wliicli arc at the top.
Heard Both Sides
"Too bad about Tom and the girl
he's    engaged  to.     Neither    one   of
theni is good enough for thc other."
"Where did you  get that  idea?"
"I've been talking the matter over
with both families."
Settlers Are Pouring In
Greatest Rush to   the   West   Ever
"Western Canada is experiencing
an immigration movement the like
of which she has never witnessed before in her history," according to J.
Rrtiec Walker, commissioner of immigration at Winnipeg.
"lu thc four weeks ending March
2," said Mr. Walker, "ihe numbers
of settlers coming into Western
Canada was greater by over 200 than
in the same weeks of last year. During that period the increase in value
of stock and settlers' elTcets coming
into the country was $800,0000.' Ai
North Portal 1 saw forty carloads
of settlers' effects entering Canada.
These people were from tho stale of
Illinois and wcrc going into Alberla
and Saskatchewan.
"The demand for land has never
been so tremendous. The C.P.R. is
selling land, including ready-made
farms, throughout tho west, chiefly
in Alberta, at the rate of 80,000
acres per month. The Hudson Bay
Co. is selling land at the rale of 40,-
000 acres per month, and have kept
up that record since August last. I
never saw such a splendid class of
immigrants come into the' country,
and 1 never knew prospects to bo
better for lhe country than they arc
"An evidence of the way tractor*
are being brought inlo" the country
is instanced by the fact that the Mo-
line. Co. brought in thirteen carloads
of tractors worlh less than $1,400
each iu the week between March 2
and March ���*."

Why He Did Not Know
Two Kansas farmers met at the
county seat shortly afler a cyclone
had visited thnt neighborhood.
"Well, sir," said one of them, "she
shook up things' out my way, to bc
sure. By the way, Henry," be added, "did lhat new barn of yours get
hurt any?"
"I can't say,'.' replied the second
farmer. "I haven't found it yel."���

FOR the war against hunger as well as for the war againsl:
the Hun. For every Canadian fighting overseas,at least two
on farms at home are serving none the less effectively because
they wear neither uniforms nor marks of rank or valour.
Long and -Strenuous days are theirs,
without leave or furlough! a Steady drive
through the daylight hours to keep the
work abreast ol the season, and save the
crops so sorely needed to feed our fighting
Only those who spend such days can
realize how good it feels to have a "wash-
up" and a clean Gillette shave at night���
or how it fits a man to enjoy the evening's,
rest or pleasure of the trip to town.
The busier you are going to be this
summer, the more you'll need a Gillette
Safety Razor, with its clean, comfortable,
five-minute shave. And the better you
know and like good tools, the more you'll
appreciate the simple mechanical perfection that gives the Gillette such a lead over
every other razor.
The Gillette Safety Razor is made in
several different styles, civilian and military.
Choose one of the former for yourself and

This will cost very littic but will

World's Wheat Outlook
Prospects Appear    More    Favorable
Than Ever Before
Speaking generally, the southern
hemisphere crops promise to be almost more plentiful than ever before. The area already sown with
wheat in the United Stales is 165
per cent, of that sown at the same
period in 1910. In 1417 an increase
of 15 per cent, has taken place in
the wheat area I'or England and
Wales, as compared with that in
1916, while on the other hand the
Canadian area indicates a decrease
of 4 per cent, lu France the plentiful snow cover which fell almost
throughout the country during December has formed a protection for
the young plant against severe frost,
and the plant is said In he looking
well. In Italy, as will as in Tunis,
tlie winter sowings of cereals arc
more, extensive ihan last year's,
taken as a whole. In Egypt the
crop forecasts are favorable, but in

These are Anxious Day*
NEVER in the history of this
old world have the people
lived under such tremendous nervous strain as to-day.
Millions awake each morning in
fearful dread of what the day
may bring forth, and live each
hour with nerves at highest
While many are falling under the
strain, others have found one means
or another of fortifying the nervous
system so as to maintain health and
The treatment most widely used
is Dr. Chase's Nerve Food, popularly
known aa the food cure, because it
feeds the exhausted nerves and
stores up nerve force and nervous
Nothing breaks down the nervous
system so quickly ns worry and
anxiety, and this is why so many
people are suffering from nervous
headaches, sciatic and neuralgic
pains, nervous indigestion and general failure of the vital organs to properly perform their functions.
When you get so nervous that you
do not rest and sleep well nights it is
time to be alarmed, for it is very
much easier to prevent nervous prostration, paralysis and locomotor
ataxia than it is to cure these dreaded
After years of testing under the
most severe circumstances Dr.
Chase's Nerve Food stands in a class
by itself as the most successful nerve
restorative to be had. This is being
proven every _ay by new evidence.
Ask your neighbors and friends
about it and read the reports in this

aiis, a member nf the Commission
for the Relief iu Belgium, whovill
look specially after ,thc numerous
orphans of Belgium, whose condition beggar description. Charity
will be given in the name of Canada and in this way Canadian  do
II tions will not lose their identity.
2. Active help to the thousands
of little Belgian children who have

The Soul of Ireland
It is as if we who havc possessed
thc body of Ireland are alone able
to discover its soul���the soul that
underlies religion, history, politics,
its eternal trefoil. The air is filled
with memories. If Englishmen sing,
it is some new song that has caught
their fancy, they do not set it in
figures or patriots; it would seem an
affectation, something outside their
own pleasure, to sing of Drake or
Sydney or of Nelson or Gordon. But
there is hardly a phase of Irisli history that does not conic quite naturally, and without any affectation in
our  street   ballads.

"I am always ready to tell what
Dodd's Kidney Tills did for me,"
says Miss Demers. "1 am never

"I had tried several medicines

Supreme Gallantry
A Britisii Captain   Who   Took   Re.
vengc on the  Huns for
The full story ot the heroism of n
Brilish captain who was sn moved
witli haired of lhc Genitalis for
crippling his child with a bomb, lhat
he attacked and killed eight of Ihem
with a club, nnd withstood a sudden
German onslaught by his inspiring
leadership, has jusl been received.
The tale has made the captain's
name a byword of gallantry and
bravery in the Britis.li camp. Here
are the facts:
When the Germans delivered their
tremendous assault against Mnsni-
eres and Marcolng during llieir general offensive ou November thirtieth,
those two towns and tlie territory
about tin-in were being held by a
division of English troops. On the
staff of tin; commanding general
there was a dashing captain who may
be designated as Captain Black for
purpose of tliis narrative. Black was
a man of long service and much beloved by all the Iroops. lie had been
a   jovial   companion until   recently,
when, during a German air raid over
Kngland, his baby girl was crippled
for life by a bomb. Black had become bitter against lhe Germans and
had sworn that he would exact full
penalty for lhc .airmen's deed. The
captain little knew when he turned
in on the night of tlie twenty-ninth
of November how soon lie would bc
able to get his revenge. Next morning the Germans attacked Masnicres
in force and the brigade to the right
of thc troops holding the town was
forced to fall back. The brigade in
thc town, however, stood firm and
fought the enemy off. Meanwhile
waves of Germans had swept by the
south of thc town and wcrc swarming westward.
Captain Black came out of his
headquarters south of Marcoing lo
find live Germans already in possession of a great dump nearby. So
quickly had the enemy advanced that
this was the first intimation _ that
they were nearby. Black had in his
hand a heavy walking stick which
was his only weapon. Without a moment's hesitation hc charget^ the
dump alone and beat about him so
fiercely that he brained all five opponents before they recovered from
the surprise. He had made good his
vow, but his work was not finished.
Other Germans appeared west of
Les Rues Verts, a southern suburb
of Masnicres. Black collected all thc
signallers, cooks, orderlies and other
servants available, and with two
companies of regulars delivered an
attack towards Rues Vcrtcs. The
Germans fell back and fierce hand-
to-hand fighting followed. Black led
his little army from liouse to bouse
and as often as the Germans made a
stand hc drove them out, until finally the whole suburb had been cleared
with the exception of one machine
gun whose crew of eight men kept
pumping bullets into the British
As could have been predicted, the
opening of thc allied air campaign
against Germany���not against the
German lines in prance and Belgium, but against Germany itself���
has been promptly followed by suggestions that perhaps the time has
now come for a limitation, by consent, of airplane activities. Tliis idea
lias been put forward iu lhc Bavarian parliament, where there was
wont to be rejoicing at lhc reports
of damages to open towns in France
and Great Britain by air raids; and
is now being urged ill the French
chamber by a member of that anti-
national group of Socialists who
have, to the. extent that they dared,
hampered tin- resistance of France
to Germany. It is inevitable that
sonic pacifist in llie British parliament will forthwith begin to bleat
about the wickedness of reprisals
and urge some understanding with
Germany. The German propaganda
is going strong in bolh France and
Great Britain; and ils directors find
no difficulty in tricking legislators
and journalists inlo playing its
As for lhc German military viewpoint about attacks from tlie. air
upon open towns, il is indicated wilh
dramatic clearness in a despatch
from Paris describing lhe deatli ol
Capt.    Schoblcr,    a    Bavarian,    who
commanded   the   recent flotilla   of
Golhas which attacked Paris by
night. The Golha carrying the valiant captain came down iu flames
near Chateau Thierry, and he was
rescued from the machine, though
not before he had suffered injuries
that proved fatal, The news dispatch goes on lo say:
"By order of a general passing in
an automobile who bad seen the fall
the officer was taken lo a hospital.
He was in a hopeless condition. His
whole body was covered with severe
cuts aud burns.
"Although in agony, he pluckily
hid his pain. His first request was
t li at he should be well cared for.
The general replied:
"'You are wounded, and a wounded man is sacred among us French.
I wish I could feel sure that our

" 'Ves,' the German replied.
" T had my orders,' the officer answered."
The captain had his orders to fly
high above the sleeping city and rain
bombs upon it, in thc hope that by
llic breaking of.the civilian morale,
through the slaughter of helpless
women and children, some military
advantage would ensue. Similar or-
I dcrs have been given at intervals
throughout the war. Some 1,400 civilians���mostly women and children
���have lost their lives in Kngland
from bombs dropped from airships
and airplanes. There is no longer
even thc hypocritical pretense that
these raids are directed against military objectives. Every raid has been
judged, as to its success, by the loss
of civilian life; and after every killing tliere havc becn screams of joy
from all parts of Germany.
The reports of the air raids carried out by allied aviators in German territory . shows that they ire
directed against stations, airdromes,
factories and barracks. These raids
are made chiefly in daylight, which
makes it possible to control, to some
extent, thc dropping'' of the bombs;
but there is inevitable incidental destruction of civilian life and property. Moreover, it is being demonstrated, even to the arrogant German
authorities, that the allies can now,
al will, carry out terrible reprisals
upon thc towns along the Rhine,
Hence the newly-acquired German
inclination���promptly echoed by the
defeatist groups in the belligerent
nations���to reconsider the propriety
under international law, of launching attacks from the air, Germany
will, in tliis matter of air-raiding,
duplicate her experience with poison gas; she will rue the day when
she threw her scruples overboard
and gave "orders" to her airmen to
carry out a program of (rightfulness

Keep Rabbits
One pair of rabbits in one year
would increase to 2,484 in twelve
months at thc rate of six young ones
per mouth, which is a very conservative rate, some young families
numbering as high as thirteen. This
is also allowing for the elimination
of surplus male bunnies as soon as
they arc big enough to cat. Rabbits can live on hay and get along
very cheaply. They provide five
pounds of meat when full grown.

The Sultan's Treasures
Many Hidden Treasures of Immense
It is believed that in certain
vaults at Constantinople there lie
many hidden treasures of immense
value belonging to the Sultan of
Turkey. A throne of beaten gold,
adorned with quantities of rubies,
pearls, diamonds and emeralds set in
mosiac, is perhaps t_nc most dazzling
object in thc treasury. Selim the
first brought it from Persia early in
the sixteenth century. There is a
second throne of ebony and sandalwood, encrusted with mother-of-
pearl, gold, rubies, emeralds and
sapphires. Nowhere in the world
arc lliere precious stones to compare with thc two great emeralds
found here, one of which weighs two
kilograms and is as large as a man's
hand, and the oilier of wliicli is only
a littic smaller. There are diamonds,
turquoises, rubies, emeralds, and
pearls by tlle half-bushel. Formerly
the jewels were kept in drawers but
when last seen tiny were in bowls,
each of which held two gallons.

Unless we fix firmly in our minds
what should surely bc for all sane
men the fundamental truths of this
war, apparent lo all a short lime ago
and still apparent to all wlio have
kept iheir heads, men will fail, especially tlie more generous and idealist of them, into a catastrophic mis-
judginent wliicli will ruin Europe, It
will ruin this country especially,
The first truth is that Hie war was
made by Prussia. This awful calamity is the direct handicraft of Prussia and of Prussia alone, 'lhc second
truth is that tlie barbaric, precedents
in modem warfare were created by
Prussia, will remain if Prussia survives Unbeaten, and would bc tlie
deatli of England.
The second fundamental truth iu
thc whole affair, which is less often
forgotten, but wliicli is slill too much
glossed over, is this: Prussia in thc
course of this war has gradually dissolved that moral code upon wliicli
the culture of Europe reposed and
without which Europe can never recover herself. Only her defeat can
restore that code, and on lhat code
depends the very life of this island
more than of any other nation.
So true is it that Prussia in breaking these elementary laws of European morality has imperilled the
whole of our civilization, that she

There was here exactly what you see
in the career of the individual criminal. Things rare in 1871���such as
the shooting of hostages���were done
wholesale in 1914. Things impossible
even to Prussia in 1871���such as thc
massacre of neutrals���were done, as
a matter of course in 1914. Things
such as the use of poison, which any-
sane man in lhis country during the
first six mouths of thc war would
have told you wcrc unthinkable in
Kurope, wcrc done by Prussia before
twelve months had passed. Things
which were quite unthinkable in 1915
wcrc done in 1916���-and so on.
The scries lies patent to all. The
drama has been enacted before the
eyes of all. Nothing but an inexcusable slackness of fibre can explain
a forgelfulncss of such a series. The
use of poison was unthinkable. It
took place. The bombardment of
civilians in open towns was unthinkable. It took place. The sinking of
merchant ships without warning was
still unthinkable. It took place. Even
then the sinking of neutral merchant
ships without warning was still unthinkable. Prussia proceeded to lhat.
Hospital ships were still surely immune we said! So slow is a. civilization���like an individual���to appreciate tbe approach of death. But there
came a time when Prussia announced her intention of sinking neutral
ships���and she did sink them. There
is no end to such a scries. It may
pass from such acts to private assassination, to the corruption of the
water supplies of great cities, to the
calculated spread of epidemic diseases. It is a plain declaration ot
moral anarchy in the midst of

History, which is the object lesson

It is that an undefeated and unchas-

Service Badges
Are Explained
Government      Makes      Regulations
Clear by Statement
The militia department makes the
following announcement:
As llicrc appears to bc some misapprehension on the subject of war
badges, the following points arc
(1) Class "A" badge is issued to
men who have seen service at the
front, and lo these only. The design
ot Class "A" badge is the same as
that originally issued by the Canadian Patriotic Fund. This was decided upon in view of the strong representations that it was desired lo
perpetuate this design, as it was already well known and highly valued
by tlie soldiers to whom it had been
(2) Class "B" badge is actually
what is known as the "Imperial silver badge," wliicli is awarded to
British soldiers who are honorably
discharged as permanently unlit for
further service, irrespective ol
whether the service was rendered in
England or at the front. In the
Canadian expeditionary force this
silver badge is awarded not only to
those who have served at the front
(in addition lo Class "A" badge) but
to those honorably discharged as unfit for further service after servin ;
in England,
It will thus bc seen that soldiers
who have served at the front ami in
England are entitled to two badges,
viz., Class "A" badge and Class "B"
badge, the. latter, however, not being
issued until the soldier has becn honorably discharged on account of old
age, wounds or sickness, rendering
him permanently unfit for further
There has been some agitation in
favor of issuing Canadian war service badge, Class "A" to men resident in Canada, but who served in
the imperial forces, and in this connection it should be noted that this
badge is awarded under order in
council to Canadian troops only.
Those soldiers who serve in the imperial forces are entitled to such
badges and other decorations as are
provided under proper authority fertile imperial army.
