Wheat for Rumania
Canadian Officer Says Food Outlook
Is Considerably Improved
An arrangement has been perfected between the Rumanian and the
Russian governments for lhc diversion of llic Bcssarabian wheal crop
to Rumania. Storage depots have
been established and 20,000 Ions of
the grain already assembled. The
crop is abundant, and it is estimated
it will more than meet the needs ol
the army. Li.iit.-Colonel .1. VV.
Boyle, Canadian militia engineer,
who has just returned from Rumania,
pronounces the foot! outlook as considerably improved.

Everybody   Should    Read   a   Good
Newspaper and Keep In Touch
With Events
The man or woman who in these
crilical times fails lo read a good
newspaper rcgulavh is a slacker, declared Professor Willard (i. Blcyer,
head of ihc department of journalism
at lhe University of Wisconsin, in
addressing the students of the. library school.
It is the patriotic- duly to keep informed in regard to the epoch making.events and--utterances that arc rc-
ported iu the press from day to day.
"The food of opinion is the news
of the da)'," as President Wilson has
well said, and it behooves every citizen not only to read the news hut
to form intelligent opinions In regard lo it.
Intelligent public opinion, without
which we cannot have true democracy, is the sum total of the opinions
of Individual citizens, ami must be
formed largely from lhc news which
is printed in newspapci -.
By failing to read the news and to
consider its significance, a man is
shirking his duly lo Ids country jusi
as lndy as he is when he fails lo
express his opinions h\ casting his

Mr. I-Mirenoe I_ Done., 39 Stanley
direct, London, Ont., write.*:���"About

vi recked rny nerves. I doctored with

New vigor and energy and
vitalty must be instilled into the
depleted nerve cells if cure is to
be effected, and this is most certainly accomplished by such
treatment as Dr. Chase's Nerve
Since the digestive system is
incapacitated it is most essential
to get into the blood stream the
very elements which are found in
this great food cure.
The blood is made rich and red,
the starved nerve cells are restored and revitalised, and with
returning vigor and strength and
confidence the harmful notions of
a diseased brain soon disappear.
Nervous diseases take different
forms with different people, but
to effect cure in any case the depleted nerve cells must be nourished back to health and vigor by
such reconstructive treatment as

The Whole German System is Pounded Upon Military Victories
And the Legend ol Successful Wars Followed by Profitable
Plundering, and This Idea Must Be for Ever Destroyed
We shall not have dune with lhc

ed the structure on which German
foreign policy rests and has rested
for more than a century. Wc. shall
not bc free from recurring dangers
on the side of Germany until wo
have proved that Germany will be
the worst sufferer from sueh wars.
No one need think twice of air,- appeal to German conscience o: German humanity; these arc attributes
which have still to be acquired by
Germany, so far as international relations arc concerned, Our sole
chance for permanent peace lies in
< stablishing the fact in the German
mind that there is no profit in International thieving, assassination and
other equally characteristic Teutonic
Whatever hc may be at home,
abroad the German is a I lun, a barbarian. He murders, he pilfers, he
defies and he destroys solely to profit
himself. He docs these things because ill thc past hc has profited by
them. He can see upon the map,
written in German colors, the proof
of lhc wisdom of such policies, as he
lias pursued theni in lhe past. And
as long as this evidence stands uncontradicted wc shall have lhe German barbarian coming out of lhc
north on plundering expeditions in
thc future as we have had him in the
past ever since Rome had to face
similar incursions.

his hankering for human ih-sli by
soft words as lo break flic German
of his historic habits by equally (utile
kind words. The way to treat a
German while Germans follow their
present methods, is as a common
iwril to all civilized mankind. Since

the wild beast, hc must bc Ireatcd
as beyond the appeal of generous or
kind methods. When onc is generous to a German he plans to take advantage of that generosity to rob or
murder; this is his international history, never more conspicuously illus-
trated than here in America. Kindness he interprets as fear, regard foi
international Jaw as proof of decadence; agitation for disarmament has
been for him the final evidence of
Ihc degeneracy of his neighbors.
The beginning of security for the
world and of civilization for thc German will he thc demonstration by
lhis war that the German cannot win,'
cannot escape defeat, with nil its filial consequences, whenever hc attacks
his neighbors solely for plunder and
for power. The whole German system is founded upon military victories and the legend of successful
wars followed by profitable plundering.*. This legend can he destroyed
only upon thc battlefield, and under
the contemporary Hriiish attack it
is fast bring destroyed. Fools and
faint-hearts behind the line may yet
rob the dead and lhe living, who
have fought this war, of the fruits of
their labors and their sacrifices; but
only these can save a German military machine whose defeat is ' now
assured if the war goes through another campaign. U'c arc near to liberation, wc arc approaching the certain realization of all that millions
have died to attain, and, as always
happens as victory approaches, those
who are winning the light have to
face the enemy at the front and fear
the cowards at home.���From the

I Women Exposed
To Shell Fire
More  Gci'man   Hrutality  in   Belgium
Revealed by  Roche's Letter
Belgian women and girls ���re being
compelled to build concrete dugouts
under artillery fire. The statement
that this form of slavery hns actually
been practised is recorded in the
diary of a German soldier who was,
recently captured. He belonged to a
Landwehr division and was personally in charge of a number of these unfortunate Belgians, who wire daily
herded together and taken lo a zone
mar the German lines to perform
manual labor of the hardi si kind, in
constant danger of dealh, The soldier's diary lells the story ns fol-
I low-s:
"I am going io_ give another in-
Btanci i lhe inefficiency of the German auiliorities. Since lhe lKtIt inst,
fifty women and young girls have
been working al concrete dugouts al
I.eke. As I.eke is in the zone of lire,
ami was shelled no later than yesterday, ihis is another cose in which wc
cannot understand tho action of lhc
authorities. If this isn't taken by way
of reprisal, then it is a shameful deed
on the part of Germany, which cannot bc surpassed even in imagination, The civilian population of Lckc
was evacuated three or (our weeks
ago. and now wonn it and children
are compelled to work at lhe concrete dugouts of the village.
"It is a shame that such steps
should be taken, whether there is
reason for it or not, I am sure of
the facts which 1 stale, for it is my
duly to take a gang of forty-seven
women to Lckc every morning and
bring them back in 'he evening."
An illustration of the German disregard (or the laws of war and humanity can be found in an incident
which occurred the oilier night near
Houtholst Forest. The Hriiish heard
cries of "Stretcher bearers!" from
No Man's Land. It naturally was
assumed that a wounded man wns
calling for help, and Red Cross bearers rushed out through tlie darkness
to render assistance. They were
shot down by German snipers, who
used this ruse to entice them into the
There have been many other eases
recently in which German snipers
havc shot down Red Cross workers
deliberately, despite the facl that
Gernlan Red Cross workers have
becn permitted to work unmolested.

The recent recovery of a silver

thousands Of Sardinians and Atls-

similar missiles fashioned from thc
altar-silver taken by Napoleon's soldiers from Italian churches,

a certain messenger of death!
'Dicre are, indeed, few materials)
from which bullets have not been
fashioned, from iron and a'ttminum
to copper and brass. They have
been steeped in deadly poisons, filled
with explosives and acids, and have!
been made heavy with mercury, In
flic Crimea many a soldier, when his
bullet pouch was empty, fired his
ramrod as a parting salute to the
enemy; and in thc Peninsular war

It cannot be too earnestly urged
that Canada's supply of pork to
the Allied nations must be increased almost without limit. Patriotism and good business combine to
mak. tlie effort commendable. The
need for animal foods by the Allied armies and civil populations is
increasingly great; the need for ba-1
con and pork products most of all. '���

quantity, weight for weight, of the j
animal fats needed for the soldiers.

Among the deliberate falsehoods
which have gone abroad and ob��

the following: Thnl whilst advising

bitatit salaries were paid to his office stuff; that he was going to
commandeer all preserved fruit in

Alberni Conservatives
Select Candidate
Mr Richard Wallis, a prominent
farmer of the.Natioose district and
one of the prominent residents ol
the riiling, wns nominated ns Con-
servative standard bearer in Ih*
forthcoming by.election campaign
at a Conservative convention held
nl Port Alberni on Friday night.
'I'he meeting wns attended by over
fifty delegates, representing with
proxies, eighty-seven votes, nnd
every section of lhe riding wns
represented. Tliree 1 antes were
placed in nomination, those of Mr,
Wallis, of Nnuoose, Mr, J. P. Latham, of Old Alberni, and Mayor
Macintyre of Port Alberni. Two
ballots were required to decide
to whom the honor of the nomination should go, Mr. Wallis being
successful and his selection being
greeted with enthusiasm, The
meeting, after the business was
concluded, heard spirited speeches
from the nominee and Mr. W. J.
Bowser, K. C, leader of the party
in the Province, the latter receiving
a hearty ereeting and his remarks
being voiciferously applauded. A
feature of the gathering was the
attendance of a number of ladies
who took a keeti interest in the
proceeding* and predicted that the

majority of the women vote in the
riding, Mr. Harry Brown presided at the convention. Mr, Bowser
proved a keen critic of the government and its record.

lands, and to the cousequei t  impoverishment of the soil  especially
of France and  Italy,   next vear's

"Lei ine have Iter," she said wiili
a manner of large beneficence, "I
will get her what she wants in the
way of dry garments, Can you fetch
some wine?   She is alniosl fainting,''
The veiled woman look lhe opportunity lo slip oni in lhc night again.
When lhe Squire remembered her
she was gone.
She, Kate Bartlett, -ret out walking quickly along lho sea road. The
night was very dark, exccpl for the
flashlight; not a star to he seen
through the drifting cloud rack-. She
drew her cloak aboul In r mechanically as the wind luil'fellcd her and die
rain sent little slinging arrows in
her face.
After she had gone a little way she
stopped. Her wel veil clung uncomfortably to her face, hindering her
vision. She stood while she unpinned the veil. Having accomplished
it, she held the wet veil in her hand
for a second; then let it drop, as
though she in re done wilh it, and.
went on, her poor scarred face exposed to the wind and rain. If any
imaginative person had been present
and could see her lhcy would have
delected a significance in lhe act,
She felt oddly lighter as she lifted
hey face to the storm, feeling the
rain cool and fresh upon it. She was
uot at all afraid. On the contrary,
she felt something tingling within
her that gave wings to her feet. She
had a desperate need of hurry at this
moment. She must tret there in time
I ���to prevent something. There was
' need of hurry afler the slow weeks
in  which nothing had happened.
She left the m a road behind, passed under the churchyard wall wilhout a thought of thc graves and the
leaning crosses. She had nothing to
be afraid of now except that she
might not he in lime. As she mounted the hill the wind all but swepl
her off her fei I. She struggled
against it, paining, holding her cloak
lightly about her so that it should
not Iill like a sail and further impede lier progress.
far ahead of her she saw a light-
moving, else il might have been a
star. A lantern blown about bv the
windj lhc light appearing and disappearing. She came closer to it,
though it went before. She was
aware of a high black mass���the tilt
of a wagon. Why, it was the cart,
driven hy Margot's son, poor Leon,
which was lo have carried Cooper
and Miss Dully over the frontier.
She walked in the shadow of the
cart undetected, and had some shelter
from the rain and the wind. Her feel,
went upward, upward. With a crack
of the whip lhc horse came to a
standstill. The gate of the farm
yard was open. Beyond was i'ic
open house dour, the light streaming
out on the wet cobble stones of the
courtyard, on St. Roch and his dog
and  the  hush  of  late  roses.
She slipped through lhc gate in
the shadow of thc wagon, passed
llirougli the door of the liouse, which
she closed behind her as though she
cut off a chance of escape. The saile
a manger was just as she had lefl
it���clean and lamp-lit, While she
Stood looking about her, Cooper
tame in fronl the scullery and faced
her, where she kept her hack against
lhc door.
"So iuii have come hack again," he
said, blinking in the lamplight, which
made deep golden reflections in llis
ryes.    "Where is  Miss  Egerton?"
"With lur lover. You will not see
her ...,���.;.."
"If I'd known you'd have played

zand,   Why shouldn't I do it now:"
"Because it would he another black

from her while lips by an intolerable
fear and suspense,

said. "You did well lo hide your

Reflex of Good
Prices for Produce
Some Indications of Western Canada's Prosperity This Year
After a  careful  study  of available
statistical mutter, a Winnipeg newspaper estimates that the cash returns
which will he received by the farmers of .Manitoba this year for thcll
crop and produce will lur between
sixty-live and seventy-live millions
greater than last year's. The largest
increase i.s iu the wheal crop, which
in min is estimated to have yielded
$46i722|588, while a conservative estimate for lhc present year shows lhat
Ihe wheal crop in Manitoba should
yield $199,239,760, or nearly $153,000-
000 more than in 1910. Tin- lain i
estimate is based upon lhe price of
$2,05 per bushel, which in view of
the facl lhat the wheat is grading
high, seems a very fair basis for an
stiinnle. The. acreage in wheal this
year is nol so greal a.s in 1916, hut
lhe average yield per acre is alniosl
seven bushels more.
While, the oal crop is nol so good
lhis year as in 1916, the estimated
yield being lower despite an increased acreage, thc increased price will
make the value of thc oat crop exceed last year's hy more Ihan live
million  dollars.
Dairy products will show a marked increase, and although it i.s yet too
tarly to estimate the total cash receipts for butter, cheese, milk and
cream, it seems safe to say that the
increase will be considerably more,
than $5,000,000. Last year dairy products were valued at $4,483,614. Manitoba butter continues to bc in great
demand and thc Montreal market m
particular, is bidding for every pound
it can get. Morc than eighty -cars of
Manitoba creamery butter havc been
shipped east this year, and as each
car represents $9,000 in cash, it is
easy to realize the importance of the
export butter industry to this province, which a few- years ago was importing tne larger part of its own requirements.
Equal conditions exist in Saskatchewan and Alberta. No belter indication of the general prosperity of
thc west can bc given than is afforded by the present state of the banking business. Winnipeg, which may
be termed the gateway of the west,
has stepped into the second place in
the bank clearing returns of the Dominion, running Montreal very close.
In a recent week lhe figures were
nearly twenty-five millions and a half
more than Toronto's, and only about
five millions less than Montreal's.']
Calgary has jumped up lo lhc fourth
place, having doubled or almost
doubled thc figures of last year every week for the past six weeks.
While it is not suggested that the
bank clearing returns indicate an exact financial comparison with she
cities of the cast, which have a much
larger population, they arc decidedly
favorable and presage great ihings
for the west.

In the days of our fathers nnd
grandfathers rheumatism        was
thought to bc the unavoidable penalty of middle life and old age. Alniosl every elderly person had rheumatism, as well as many young people. Medical science did not understand the trouble���did not know that
it was rooted iu tho blood. Il was
thought that rheumatism was the
mere cITecl of exposure lo cold and
damp, and it was treated with liniments and hot applications, ivnlcll
sometimes gave temporary relief, but
did not cure the trouble. In those
days there were thousands of rheumatic cripples. Now, medical science
understands that rheumatism is a
disease of the blood, and that with
good, rich, red blood any man or
woman of any age can defy rheumatism can be cured by killing the poison in the blood which causes it.
There are many elderly people who
have never felt a twinge of rheumatism, and many who have conquered
it by simply keeping their blood rid:
and pure. The blood making blood
enriching qualities of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills is becoming every year
more widely known, and it is the
more general use of these pills that
has robbed rheumatism of its terrors. At the first sign of poor blood,
which is shown bv loss of appetite,

The Tragedy of the Sea
War Has Brought Greatest Tragedy
of Maritime History
Wc have fed the sea for a "thousand years," but never as we are
forced to feed it today; it has become in the past thirty-eight mouths
a place of quiet sepulture for tens of
thousands of our fellow-countrymen,
tlu-ir graves unmarked except for the
(lowers of memory. Where is the
romance of the sea which lured our
seamen, as hoys or youths, away
from the comlort and security of
home? The great adventure has become the great tragedy of maritime
'llstory, Romance has been overlaid
>y realities of crime and cruelty,
which are, happily, fresh in human
experience. The naval bluejacket
thought lo fight In the open an honorable foe, both sides using legitimate weapons of war, in accordance
with the immemorial restraints; instead he is confronted by men who
have forgotten the meaning of honor

Canary Causes Britisii Panic
It Is Shot Before Revealing Weeks
of Mining Operations
How one little canary bird caused
consternation among an entire division of Britisii troops and had to bc
killed, is told by Dr. Kobert Davis,
recently arrived iu the United States
lo lecture at lhe ofhrcis' training
camps on activities of the Red Cross
in Europe.
'Tor more Ihan a month on a
northern sector of the line the British had been secretly mining beneath the German trenches," said Dr.
Davis. "The work was almost complete. Ruling the operations several canary birds were, as usual, kepi
iu the excavations to warn the workers of the presence of lire damp,
which Is fatal to the birds. One Utile songster, however, escaped from
its job, flew into the middle of N'o
Man's Land aud alighting on a bush
began to sing.
"Consternation reigned in the British lines. If the bird had been discovered by the Germans lhc work ot
weeks would go for naught, as the
enemy could easily interpret the
meaning of its presence and prepare
to combat the sapping operations.
Ihc infantiy was immediately order-
ed to open fire on the canary to destroy it. But it seemed to bear a
charmed life. Even the sharpshooters failed to bring it down, as it hopped from twig to twig. Finally the
artillery had to be called on. A
trench gun with a well-aimed shell
blew- thc bird and the bush and .the
song into nothingness."
, The Saskatoon "Star" savs: "There
is a dispute between the C.P.R.
and thc conductors. Just what thc
point of difference Is, Is not yet
known, but those conversant with

Value of Corn
Luther Burbank   Says   It   Is   Best
. Cereal Except Wheat
and Rice
Luther Burbank of California haa
declared that he was misquoted in.
the statement recently attributed tn
him that corn diet is injurious to tba
national health.
In his denial he says!
"I am in thorough sympathy witli
the effort to get corn more Renera*1jr
introduced into the dietary of ths
I'nited States. It is in my opinion
the best cereal food, except wheal
and rice, and people should by all
means bc encouraged to use it far
more liberally than it has been usird,
as il supplies all of the elements o!
nutrition in nearly thc right propt>r��
lions and will take thc place of sa
much meat with great advantage to
the health of those who use it It
will certainly bc far better to utt a
good proportion of it rather than so
much fine white flour."

(Published by authority of Director of Pahiic Information,
Hon. Mr. Justice Duff gave judgment on December
6th, in the first test case brought before him, as Central
Appeal Judge (the final court of appeal), f .-. the exemption of a farmer. The appeal was made by W. H. Rown-
trce in respect of his son, W. J. Rowntree, from the
decision of Local'Tribunal, Ontario, No. 421, which
refused a claim for exemption. The son was stated to
be an experienced farm hanrl, v/ho had been working
on the farm continuously for the past seven years, antl
* ever since leaving school. He lives and work.'; with his
father, who owns a farm of ISO acres near Weston,
Ontario. With the exception of a younger brother, he
is the only male help of the father on the farm. The
father is a man of advanced years.
In granting the man exemption "until he ceases to
be employed in agricultural labdr," Mr. Justice Duff
"The Military Service Act does not deal with the
subject of the exemption of persons engaged in the agricultural industry; and the question which it is my duty
to decide is whether the applicant being and having
been, as above mentioned, habitually and effectively engaged in agriculture and in labor essential to the carry"
ing on of agricultural production, ought to be exempted
under the provisions of the Military Service Act.
"These two propositions are indisputable :
"(1) In order that the military power of the allies
may be adequately sustained, it is essential that in this
country and under the present conditions, there
should be no diminution in agricultural production.
"(2) The supply of competent labor available for
the purpose of agricultural production is not abundant,
but actually is deficient.
"The proper conclusion appears to be that the applicant, a competent person, who had been habitually
and effectively engaged in labor essential to such production, ought not to be withdrawn from it.
"It is perhaps unnecessary to say that such exemptions are not granted as concessions on account of personal hardship, still less as a favor to a class. The sole
ground of them is that the national interest is the better
served by keepihg these men at home. The supreme
necessity (upon the existence of which, as its preamble
shows, this policy of the Military Service Act is founded) that leads the State to take men by compulsion and
put them in the fighting line requires that men shall be
kept at home who are engaged in work essential to enable the State to maintain the full efficiency of the combatant forces, and whose places cannot be taken by
others not within the class called out,"
Ottawa, Dec. 8,1917.
