For 20 per cent. Reduction in English
Live Stock
The expectation is, according to
The Farmer nnd Slock Breeder, thnl
live stock holdings in the United
Kingdom will hnve to be reduced hy
20 per cent, owing lo feed shortage,
ll is not anticipated that there will
hc any forced diminution iu purebred ment aniinnls nnd llie dairy
slock will stand next in line for con-
servatlon, Horses, especially those
kept for pleasure purposes, will In:
pill on short feed, nnd it is quite possible some of ihein may be used for
human food.
This, however, is only part of a
change which is promised in English
agriculture.   Three million acres   of
grazing lands nre In he broken up
this year, nml more will be broken
nexl year, ihe Intention being in pui
lhc United Kingdom in a position to
he permanently practically independ-
of foreign food supplies so (nr as
grain is concerned. What the effect
of a lessening of pasture and increase
in grain producing area will ultimately be in the matter of the production
of meat and dairy products il is difficult to say. In England lhe stock-
carrying capacity of a given area iu
grass is much more nearly equal lo
lhe carrying ability of nn equal area
in cultivated land Ihnn is lhe case
here, because the pasture season
there is much longer than with us.
Still it is probable that wilh nn increase in the cultivated area llu:
country will, under normal conditions
he able lo produce more wheal ihan
now for human food wilhoui necessarily lessening live Stock holdings.
In fact, there may be an increase iu
the kilter, and the United Kingdom
may in future years he made well

and dairy products ns well ns wheal.

Powers of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills
How often victims of disease such
as la grippe, fevers,, or contagious
troubles are lefl weak, ailing and des
pondent after the disease itself has
disappeared. They du not pick up
strength as lhcy ought; remain listless, lired and discouraged. The reason for lhis is that the. blood has
111411 impoverished by the ravage ofl
the disease through which the victim
has passed. Strength will not rc-
lurn uniil the blood has been enriched. Thc blood can bc purified and
enriched by no oilier medicine as
quickly and as surely as by Dr. Williams' Pink Tills���lo enrich lhe blood
and strengthen the nerves is the
whole mission of these pills. Thousands have found them beneficial in
bringing strength and energy after
disease has lefl Ihein weak aud run1
down. Miss Hannah Hamilton Everett, Out., says:���"After an attack
of la grippe I was so run down and j
anaemic that 1 could scarcely walk.
I had no color, uo appetite, and constant headaches, The medicine 1
was taking was doing me uo good
ami I had almost lost hope of gelling
belter. I was asked to try Hr. William'.' l'ink Tills, and it was not long
uniil   I   could  feci     lhal     tlicy     wire
helping me, and after taking lliem for
a couple of months I was completely
cured. I now never fail lo recommend these pills lo anyone needing
a  blood  biiildi r."

any dealer in medicine or by mail

A Frightful Account Is Given of the So-called Judicial Methods
Of the Germans in Dealing With the Persecuted Inhabitants
Of Stricken Belgium
An Interview was had hy a representative of ''enter's Agency in
London with a Belgian gentleman of
high social position, who succeeded
iu escaping from Belgium, knowing
thai he was about lo fall Into the
hands of the German secret police.
lie gives a terrible account of the
Germans' so-called judicial methods,
which have produced a veritable
reign of terror, in many rrs| Is resembling the procedure of lhc Inquisition,
"III   a   vague   way."   he   said,     "the
world knows something of German
military tribunals; bul I doubl if it
Is realized lhat something like one
thousand citizens are condemned every mouth for patriotic offences. Dttr
lug lhe three months preceding Janu
ary last, forty-two death sentences
were inflicted iii one court alone.
"Nobody who has not gone llirougli
it can realize the extent of terror
which prevails, owing to the methods
employed by lhc German, secret police, and for obvious reasons very
few people are able lo give any precise particulars.
"A German sergeant was ordered
to arrest 'Francs-Tiretirs' in die
'ally days of tlle war, but as be was
unable lo lind any, and nol daring lo
presenl himself before his chief
empty-handed, he. simply arrested
the lirst unoffending peasants lie met
on the road. This sort of thing now
happens daily in die campaign of
persecution directed against die patriots.
"Large towns like Brussels and
Antwerp continue to swarm will)
spies, and they often visil small
(owns ami even villages where they
think llicrc is the slightest chance
lo prosecute their abominable trade.
Occasionally the secret police disguise themselves as escaped French
prisoners, or pose as guides ready lo
help the distracted people to escape
llirougli the electric wire frontier.
When they have succeeded in gaining the confidence of their victims,
they promptly denounce them to the
koin mandator.
"The next stage is the tragedy in
prison, from which escape is almost
impossible. Every day the victims
are visited in their cells, not hy judges and lawyers, but by German officers and police bullies, who wring
confessions from them. I know one
man who was cross-examined in this
way for eight hours without intermission and without food. When.the first
torturer was exhausted he was replaced hy a second, who continued
lhc ordeal, 'lhc prisoner, refusing lo
confess, was threatened and struck iu
the face.
"Some limes 'gents provocateurs,'
disguised as prisoners, mix wilh the
patriots, abusing the Germans and
complaining of their cruelty. In this
way they obtain the sympathy and
confidence of their companions, and,
if die latter are unwise enough to
trust them, they are promptly confronted with Ihem and obliged to
confess llieir fault. 1 also know
cases where relatives and friends of
prisoners were arrested, and the latter wcrc told that their mother or
sisler had denounced them.
"Trial is a mere farce. In most
rases the defendants may not receive
the help of a Belgian barrister. This
depends entirely on the good-will of
the governor of the    district.     Ihe
usual procedure Is for the German
clerk, after the Indictment has heen
read, to speak a few words for lhe
defence, wilhout having any knowledge of the case. If a barrister
does attend die case, he is mil allowed to communicate with the prisoner, either in prison or elsewhere,
so dial It is impossible for llilll lo
obtain knowledge of the (acts.
"The only way to help lhe prisoner
is to. obtain Information by bribery
from the clerk iu charge of lhe dossier, and nfler the mail has been eon
dcuiued lo address a petition lo the
Governor General."
Big List of Attractions
Amusement  Features at Moose Jaw
Ranchers' Fair Will Be of
Exceptional Merit
The amusement features to be provided for visitors to the Ranchers'
Fair and Livestock Show, lo be held
at Moose Jaw, July 17tli lo 20th, in-
cluding the largest Midway ever seen
iu Western Canada, a number of
marvellous platform vaudeville and
acrobatic attractions, and the performances of a wonderfully intrepid
young woman balloonist from Lille,
Franejj promise to excel anything of
die. kind ever attempted in the Prairie  Provinces,
On the Midway the visitor will find,
among a large number of. olhcr
things, a model submarine show, in
wliicli a perfect copy of the present
death dealing sea weapon is submerged and operated before the visitors'
eyes; an enormous Ferris Wheel; a
rare exhibition of different specimens
of the animal kingdom; a merry-go-
roii'nd; a good old fashioned darky
Minslrel Show; a Fat Girl, the fattest who ever lived; and a large village of the tribe of Phillipino Igorot-
tcs, the peculiar little people from
Uncle Sam's islands, who live on die
flesh of dogs, and have such peculiar
religious customs. In addition lo
these, other attractions without number will bc there to lure and entertain the visitor, and anyone who
would enjoy four days' of such amusement together with a great Stampede, horse races, and au agricultural
and livestock show, should not fail
to come to Moose Jaw the third
week of July.
In addition, if death does not cut
short her young life, Mile. Lueiclle
Belmont, of Lille, France, will be
seen each day in a death defying,
heart throbbing balloon ascension,
and mad plunging drop to earth,
which is only cheeked by the use of
three parachutes. Mile. Belmont is
today recognized as the world's foremost lady aviator, and her performances here iu thcmesclves will hc well
worth the trip.
Germans Admit Subs Falling Off
According to'the Rotterdam correspondent of thc London Daily
News, the German reports on the
destruction wrought by the submarines not only show a regular daily
falling off, but are becoming more
vague in character, being simultaneously put back in less conspicuous
places in the German in wspapcrs, lhc
places on the front pages being taken
by highly laudatory reports of the
latest air raids on England.
Tunnelling the
English Channel
What the Value Would be Is Bioughl:
Home During War Times
War, lhal for long years has lilled!
Englishmen's minds with fear of invasion ii a tunnel were to he buill
under lhe English channel, strangely enough lias-pointed the verv wis
dom of die great undertaking, If
there had been a tunnel under the
English channel during this war,
Great Britain would have been relieved of the task of conveying lo and
fro from Frnacc lhc transports and
hospital ships which convey men and
munitions and wounded ami sick to
and from the battlefields of France.
The allies could laugh al threatening
submarines In those waters, All ihese
ihings the Englishman sees today,
and il is more llian likely lhal one of
Ihc lirsl great afler-tlie-war engineering feats thai will be undertaken will
be ilie construction of the English
channel tunnel,
At a recent meeting of the Royal
Geographical society iu London, Sir
Francis l'ox explained lhal owing to
lhe necessity of keeping the tunnel
well within the lllickllCSS of die
grey chalk that is characteristic of
lhc southern limits of England, there
would be a slight curve. The. maximum depth of water over the channel would bc from 160 to IHO feel,
and du: roof of chalk over the structure has been fixed al a inininiiuii
of Kill feet.
The tunnel would consist of two
lubes of IS feet diameter. All die
work would be, done hy electrically-
driven machinery, and excavation
and other operations would be carried on simultaneously at many
points, and a record speed would bc
reached. The tunnel could be worked and ventilated and pumped by
electricity from a Kent power-station
leu miles inland.
The tunnel would have a dip in thc
level of the rails forming a water-
lock by wilic- the tunnel could, in
case of emergency, bc filled with water from floor lo roof for the length
of a mile." This would be under control of Dover Casllc, and the entrance
and exit of both tunnels would bc under the gun-fire of the Dover forts.
Trains would be run direct from
London lo Paris in less llian six-
hours, and passengers would he able
to go from London lo Constantinople, Petrograd, and by lhc Siberian express to the Far East wilhout
change of carriage.
Liquid Fire
How This Terrible Weapon of Destruction Is Projected
The Germans have uot hesitated to
introduce any of the ancient or modern weapons of offense and defense
wliicli they thought would be of advantage, regardless of The Hague
Conventions or accepted standards
of civilization. Among these is "liquid
fire," a weapon of value principally
because of its demoralizing effeel upon Ihose attacked. There have been
casualties resulting from liquid fire,
but it is the psychological effect dial
is sought.
The apparatus usually consists of
a metal lank holding abotit four gallons of liquid lo be burned, a scclion
of pipe from this l'ink to a rubber
hose at the other end, in which there
is a smaller metal pipe about a yard
long fitted with a nozzle and a friction igniter, as well as an oil-burning wick. There is a valve near Ihe
lank and another mar die nozzle.
Benzol, from coal lar, ami crude oil
are used ill equal proportions and are
carried in the tank under a pressure
of approximately 300 lbs. per square
inch, this pressure being niaiuTailicd
by compressed nitrogen, an inert gas
having no effect upon the contents
of dm tank. The lank and accessories
arc carried by one man, while the
nozzle is carried hy a companion
when liquid is being burned. Or il

mailers. In general the United States
will give the Allies preferential treatment in commerce. Details, however,
could nol he agreed upon, as congress has not yet passed thc legislation necessary to deal with embargo,
trading wilh the enemy, control oi
cargo space, and the like.
A definite understanding has been
reached to cover both American and
Canadian wheat for sale to the Allied
wheal executive. Canada will co-op-
crale fully wilh thc U.S., probably
llirougli the proposed food administration bureau, and will agree to the
control of prices if that policy bi
adopted in legislation now before tha
U.S. congress. The wheat executive
committee has supplied the figures of
its needs, expressed confidence that
they can be met, and shown how the
results will he allotted among the
various Allies.
Munitions control and purchase
will bc similarly centralized, through
the Allied buying committee, though
without price control. The council of
national' defence has charged itself
with so increasing manufacture as
lo provide for the American army
without cutting off exports viially
needed abroad.

that all the Allies send permanent

Hugh Stewart, our genial representative, has repeatechy brought ibis

It will be generally conceded more
over, that among Mr. S'cwart's
supporters there are many able
farmers, anyone of whom could
have graced the new Laud Settlement Board, while the Comox
Valley has admittedly one of the
greatest futures before it as an agricultural distiict. Thut Mr Siew-
art represented ihe claims of the
valley to a seal ou Uie Board we do
not doubt, but we regret that he
was not mote successful,

It is very apparent that the coming winter will see a repetition of
high prices and consequent  hardship and   distress for those   who
tail to make provision for it, While
it is too late to   grow anything
it I.s not by any means too late  to
preserve food for the hard  months
whi'e it can be obtained,    Drought
aud lack of labor have sadly  diminished Canadian crops, while many
Canadians have failed to do a   bit
toward   producing   food.     Every
pound of food grown   in   Canada
means so much more  that cau  be
exported to   the   allied countries,
and also  less di-tress in   Canada
Eggs will be   exceedingly dear
this winter, so experts forecast, and
the price will constitute a record
Seventy-five or eighty cents n dozen
was common even before tie   war,
but this winter will see   the  dollar
itself   reached.   Eggs at   current
prices, therefore are not   too dear
for preserving.    As   for  potatoes,
they will undoubtedly   follow lasl
winter's prices, in spite of increased acreage, and vacant   lot cultivation, nnd the  wise householder
will lay in supplies of the  humble
but indispensable "spud," sufficient
to last until the i. 18 crop 'becomes
available, just ns soon ns this years
���crop Is ready.   The provincial fisheries department   at Victoria lias
issued n bulletin on the curing  ol
fish, for thc use of the public. Tllis
will bc of use to many who   won
like to put down hsh for winter
consumption, but who lack the
knowledge as to the best method
Reverting to our topic, we will add
one expression, namely, that war
teaches the value, the enormous
value of the land, and the services
of those who worthily cultivate it,
nnd persuade it to yield of its riches
and abundance. Such a thought
should deepen our thanksgiving for
whatever harvest is vouchsafed to
us in this year or grace, 1917. the
third year of the war.
Through the action of the Minister of Agriculture, the Hon Martin Burrel, arrangements have been
1111 d : to have the Canadian Bankers
Association co-operate with the
Department of Agriculture in pro
viding a liberal stun of money to be
offered in prizes for calves nnd
pigs exhibited by boys or girls
under 17 years of age. at county
or township fairs
These competitions are known as
the ''Canadian   Hunkers Competitions," and are linked up with the
activities of the I.ive Stock Branch
of the   Dominion   Department  of
Agriculture.   They   represent   nn
effort to increase Intere t  in Live
Stock, nnd constitute 11 part of the
active campaign I'm more and   bet
ter stock inaugurated  and carried
on by lhe Hon, Mr, Martin nurrel
through   his   department.     The
generous Support accorded  lo   the
movement by the Bankers Association, affords a  .practical   demon
stration of the attitude of the banks
towards the livestock industry,
and the active participation of tlie
Association iu this campaign is
bound to strengthen and create
general interest in farm live stock,
Canadian Bankers Competitons
will be held at a large number of
shows this year, ami boys and
girls should lose no time in find-
i.ig out nil about them, The calve, and pigs must be fed at least
six weeks by the boys and girls
who exhibit them, so that it is very
important to act promptly in se-

Worth noting. It involves a crumping of tiie popular vocabulary, as uo

Il involves a dulling of literary pre-

C.P.R. to Encourage Settlement and
Cultivation of Vacant Lands
In order (o encourage (lie sctilr-
nient and cultivation of vacant lands
in the Western Provinces, lhc Canadian Pacific Railway Company,
through its Colonization and Development Department, of which Mr, J.
S. Dennis is the head, lias undertaken an active campaign to try and induce absentee owners to cultivate
their holdings.
A circular has been issued to sonic
8,000 absentee owners, pointing out
the profits which can be made by
cultivating their lands, and showing
how many farmers sold their last
year's crop for more llian the original cosl of their farms,
Tho company offers the advice and
assistance of ils Colonization and
Development Department, free of
charge, in supplying reliable Information as to how to go about getting
lhc land under cultivation and will
scud, on request, the fullest details as
to routes of travel, customs regulations, passenger and freight rales and
similar data.
In undertaking lids campaign lhc
company is following ils usual broad
policy of Dominion-wide development, realizing that every new settler means greater production to meet
the food shortage "wliicli at present
threatens the world, and which Canada, with its extensive and fertile tin-
plowed acres, can provide.

A Useful Vehicle
The one-wheeled ricksha of Africa, like its two-whcclcd ancestor, the
jinricksha of Japan, was the invention of a missionary, the designer of
the African vehicle being a Swede
engaged in mission work on the
Congo. An early form of the vehicle
consists of a framework of bicycle
tubing, supporting a cushioned chair
scat over a single, low, rubber-tired
wheel. The handles in front form a
continuous loop and the rear handles
resemble those of a wheelbarrow.
Two native boys can easily transport
a pasengcr in the ricksha, and it is
the only vehicle practicable for many
of lhc narrow and crooked foot trails
which are still the only roads in the
greater part of Africa.

Prince Died Like a Sport
The Kaiser's Nephew Told His Captors of Happy Days in England
Glimpses nf llic last days of Prince
Karl Fricdrich nephew of the kaiser,
who was wounded when flying and
taken   prisoner  by    lhc    Australians,
arc given in the account sent to England by the Rev, _t. Caldwell, a Bap-
list minister, who is official chaplain
to thc German prisoners iu lhe general hospital iu France. It appears in
lhc   Hriiish  Weekly.
"The Australians, whose prisoner 1
became," the prince told Mr. Caldwell, "treated me with the greatest
kindness, They are sportsmen and
great men. 1 have a wonderful admiration for them. I' I am anything,
I am a sport. I have played tennis
with Wilding and other first-class
players. I shall never forget the
jolly time 1 had in Kngland when I
played them all. The kindness which
has surrounded mc since I became a
prisoner has brought back lhc memory of those days. The Australians
were good to me; the officers and
soldiers who attended me coming
down the line, were very considerate, and thc whole atmosphere of
this hospital is kindness. 1 am .grateful to you and all who wish mc well.
I lie here a helpless prisoner, but I
havc no regrets. I did my best for
my country, and I am not sorry I
am finished with the war. 1 want to
live. 1 am young and when the war
is over I shall go back and help to
build up my nation again."
"lie shook hands with me each
time I came and went," says Mr.
Caldwell. An hour or so before, he
died I prayed with him. He was very
weak and ill. When 1 finished he
opened his ryes, antl with a smile
said: "iliank you, thank you very
much." He soon fell into unconsciousness, from which he never recovered."
"I hear your new son-in-law haj
brain-fever," said the curious man.
"Brain-fever, did you say?" chuckled the father-in-law. "The poor nut
couldn't have any such a sickness.
Imagine a jelly-fish having a backache."
