"The nurses are spoiling mc," she
went on, "and the doctors, I'm sure
they wonder why at all 1 ara here,
instead of villi the other pour 'people. It was you, sir:"
"Yes, it was I."
The kitten which he had been holding loosely, suddenly sprang and
alighted on the bed. Purring gently,
it stood surveying lhc mass of bandages ou the pillow.
"Pretty thing!" said the woman,
"It came" in with you, sir, It belongs
to the hospital."
"It is going to belong to me," he
said, "it is nobody's kitten. Il used
to belong to a child who died here."
"I should like it," said the woman.
"I once had a child, a little girl. She
had a little kitten���not pretty like
this. She loved it. 1 am very glad
my little girl is dead."
He did not know what to say. Hc
sat down on the chair lhc nurse had
set for him and racked his brain for
something that would meet ihc plain
Statement he had jusl heard, but
could lind nothing.
"When I leave this, sir," said the
woman, "will you help mc to get
away quietly? You know what 1 said
to you last night. There was someone there in the crowd -- a voice
speaking, lie must not know 1 am
here; he must not see mc. Oh, sir,
you were good lo put me in here
alone."
Her hand, damp with the sweat of
terror, reached oul and touched his
slender brown hand with the pointed
sensitive fingers that had begun to
stroke the kitten. She. had a hard
hand���the hand of a working woman.
It trembled for very weakness as it
clutched his hand.
Again he had the pitying thought.
Poor soul! When she arose and went
forth from her sick bed she would
be effectually disguised. There would
bc Utile traces remaining of the
comeliness of her face. The glass
and thc flints had done their work as
effectively, if less cleanly, than a
sword. She would bc terribly die-
figured, he  feared.
Again he was oppressed with an
Immense pity for her, He who,
though he did not know it, had never
yet had a pas-ion for a woman, was
chivalrous to all women, perhaps by
reason of  that very  facl.
"De quid," he said, "and
Perhaps you will nol need
in thc world. Something
found for you."
".here isn't a convent anywhere
about?" she ashed. "I'm a fine ivo--
ki-r. Never was afraid of work in my
life, ll would bc the best place for
mc. And there arc many things I can
do: needlework and cooking, and
housework of all kinds."
"Be quiet," he said again authoritatively. "A place will be found for
you. 1 will come to see you again.
Vou must not fret.    Trust mc."
"Sure I will, sir, God reward you!
Tell the nurses to keep me quiet. I
do tremble when 1 hear a man's voice
in ihe Iiiiit-4 speaking���thinking it
mighi be him. I've suffered a deal. I
have indeed, sir. If there was no
other way to keep out of his sight
I'd be making a hole in the water,"
"Hush I" said- Ihr Sr|iiirc, with a
kind sternness. "You must not say
such Ihings. I will come again. When
you are belter I shall have a plan for
you. We will talk about it. Now,
good-bye, You must not over-excite
yourself."
lie patted Ihc woman's hand kindly He lefl lhc kitten hy her side and
told the nurse who let him out thai
when Mrs. Bartlctt was ready to
leave lhe hospital she would take the
kitten wilh her. He did nm know
bow his manner lo the nurse put an
aegis of protection over the kitten
as will as (he woman.
As he went away he was Ihinking
of thc shock it would bc lo his poor
protegee when first she beheld her
new face in lhc glass. Il was like
liim to think of such a thing and to
grime for il.
CHAPTER   111. THE   REFUGEE, of   a
Margaret South and her >vild ways
were something of a scandal to lhc
quiet country people, who said that
she was more like a boy Ihan a fdtl.
She rode astride; she walked wiih a
long, swinging motion like a boy's;
she dressed in lailor-ma-ios; she
smoked cigarettes, All lhe same, lie
would havc been a harsh crilic who
did not lind her a very pleasant thing
lo look upon of an October morning
when Ihc light frosts wcrc on lhe
grass, when she went oul cubbirg
alniosl before the sun was up, returning home lo breakfast through a
Fairy-land of blue and scarlet and all
lhe shades of lawny, russet and gold.
There was a tragedy behind thc
girl's brave bearing. Everyone knew
that Sir Gilbert Soulh was a cruel,
overbearing old man. He hid been
guardian to Margaret's mother, ,aud
had somehow prevailed on her to
marry him when she was just out of
the schoolroom and hc a dour man
in the fifties, i.ady South was still a
very pretty, shrinking, refined wo-
nan. who dressed much more daintily than the other ladiej of her circle.
"" was understood lo bc very deb-
martyr, and for Margaret to
her in that absurd way, .s
though she were the mother and
Lady South the daughter; but,���no
woman is done with life who wears
such prclty things as Lady South
does. You don't know anything
about it, being a man, but her greys
and whites and lavenders cost more
than olhcr women's colors. She
wears petticoats trimmed with real
lace, and silk stockings. Wicked extravagance, I call it. Think of all the
good lhat could he done with llic
price of one of Lady South's frock*,!
And she by way ot bring so pioiis,
too!"

cate; with cause, said thc gossips, for
it was well-known lhat her husband
was cruel to her. Margaret adored
her mouth; and Sir Gilbert Soulh
was reported lo havc a certain pride
in his brilliant-looking daughter, although they quarrelled violently.
Margaret had a frankness about those
quarrels which made the sensitive
shiver. Only the sensitive and discerning, like the Squire, discovered
lhat very often the tears lay very
near the girl's bravado, that she was
audacious in speech where else she
must have broken down.
A few days afler he returned to
Silverlhorne, the Squire met with
Mrs De Montmorency on the road.
The lady was one of his few antipathies among women. She was a
youngish-looking, tall woman, who
had preserved her figure, and when
she wore a veil might have passed
for nearly as young as her own
daughters.
Mrs. De Montmorency had a censorious tongue and a sharp eye. She-
had as much news to tell the Squire
1 as though he had becn absent from
Silverlhorne months rather Ihan
days. He squirmed under some of
the information she poured into his
cars. Sometimes he laughed; Mrs.
Dc Montmorency's malice was occasionally joyful, and then she was
Last malicious.
Now a frown came to his brow as
she lil on to thc subject of lhc
Souths.
"I've kept my honncbouche to thc
last," she said, "but perhaps you
know it already, as Margaret and Mr.
Slrangways arc such friends. We are
immensely excited about it. It seem;.
that Sir Gilbert has been a bit more
impossible than usual. There are
really shocking tales of his treatment
of Lady South and Margaret. Thev
say that Margaret has taken to wearing her hair in that odd way, very
old-fashioned and unbecoming, I
think    it, dropping    forward on her
temples like that to hide "
"Oh, no, no, Mrs De Montmorency!" said lhe Squire. "Please don't.
1 .hope it is not true. It would be
too dreadful!"
"Better ask Margaret, or get Mr.
Strangways to ask her," said Mrs. Dc
Montmorency, rather enjoying the
effect of her communication.
He went as near as hc could lo being rude to a woman in lhc little
sound he made expressive of an inward disgust. His blue eyes, which
had a dreamy look usually, for a second Hashed something of die steel-
blue of a blade. Mrs'. Dc Montmorency did not understand these dan-
gi r signals if she saw them. She had
been accustomed for so long to button-hole thc Squire with impunity
that she had forgotten to look for
signs of restivencss in him.
"An old lover of Lady South's has
appeared on lhc scene," she said in
a whisper which she tried to make
Bprightly, "Of course, 1 never listen
io gossip. Slill, when this gentleman
���Mr. I.angton, he calls himself, I believe���settles down here at thc inn,
and when Lady Soulh and he are
constantly to he met with promenading the country roads, iu such close
conversation    lhat lhcy    see no one
they meet "
"My dear Mrs. Montmorency,"
said lhe Squire, and his voice was
very cold, "people cannot have very
much to hide if lhcy meet on the
public roads and if this gentleman
puts up al the inn. Il is a cock-and-
bull story, quile unworthy ol your
invention."
Mrs. De Montmorency became a
little red. It had pierced even
through her self-satisfaction that lhe
Squire was displeased and was positively out of temper with her, so
much as to show it. Someone nail
said of Mr. Mcyrick that when he
died manners would die with him.
She was suddenly angry and forgot her discretion. She had every
wish .to stand wcl.l with thc Squire
of Silvcrdalc; but her sharp tongut
went  wilh a temper which was not
easily controlled.	
"As  Betty  Ellison says," she said,
with hard emphasis, "it is all    very

Britain Favors Daylight Savins
The London Times prints a forecast of lhe report of the committee
which has investigated the resulls of
last year's daylight saving. It says
the evidence taken shows lhal opinion overwhelmingly favors making
the plan general in 1917. There iS
almost a consensus among the interests which had the most difficulties
because of the selling of the clocks
ahead lhat the disadvantages vanished in practice and that those lhal remained wcrc far outweighed by the
advantages obtained. The Tim.'S

A Calamity for the Dominion if the
Enemy Should Win
The following letter written to the
Mail and Empire by a citizen of
Scaforth, who has given tho matter
careful study, is worthy of reproduction. Few people have realized what
tlie present war means. Lew will
even allow themselves to believe that
Germany deliberately went to war
to conquer the world. It is a lesson
the world will have lo learn if liberty is lo remain to thc smaller nations.
Sir,--1 have never seen i| very
clearly stated what would happen.
1 have been trying lo figure what jl
would mean to the inhabitants of
the British possesions in North
America, and), think it would be
something like lhis.
The   British   flag   would br hauled
down  and  replaced  by  the   German.
The whole of the  liritish    posses
sions  would bc  declared    lo  be  lhe
properly of Germany,
The individual owners of part of
lhe territories, whether on the farm,
iu the towns or villages would hc
ordered to vacate Iheir holding to
make way for Germans,
All lhe personal chattels, goods
and effects of such owners would be
confiscated by the German government for their new settlers.
Of course, the Dominion and provincial governments would bc swept
out of existence, and German government officials installed.
All the government arsenals, dockyards, railways, canals and other
public works would bc taken possession of by thc Germans.
The Canadian Pacific Railway, the
Grand Trunk Railway, the Grand
Trunk Pacific, all other railways
and public works would be run by
thc Germans and the shareholders
would lose all their investments iu
shares and stock in these enterprises,
The telephone lines, the telegraph
lines and the Hydro Electric hues,
fire and life insurance companies
would follow suit.
The moneys in lhc banks would
also be confiscated and their bills
put into the s furnace lo bc followed
later on by thc bills of a Dutsche
bank. It would not make a bit of
difference whether one hid $5 or
$10,000 'in deposit in a bank, not one
cent could be got. Bank stocks
would bc wiped out of existence, and
the only man who would ' benefit
would bc the man who was a debtor
lo a bank.���Seaforth, Ontario,    Mail

Sccnef Depicted
German   Savagery   at Its   Worst in
P.elgium
An American eye-witness of the
fiendish methods employed by German officers in deponing Belgians
and French from Belgium and
France gives news of a profoundly
stirring character. "Unless Germany," he says', "can be induced to
abandon her present policy, between
two and Ihree hundred thousand Belgians will be deporle.J. I saw one
long train of cattle trucks loaded
with prospective deportees. Many
had resisted, only to feel the German bayonet. Women and children
had foilghl for Iheir menfolk with
desperate fierceness- ciolhes (altered, eyes streaming, voices screaming
and shouting until hoarse. When
the train hail In rn loaded the women
and 'hihlreii standing about in ihc
huge crowd suddenly ran on the line
iu front of lhe locomotives, threw
themselves on the rails, and clunp;
there, shutting llieir eyes and utter-
iny loud lamentations Detachments
of soldiers pried them loose with
bayonets, and forced them clear of
the Irack, when lhe. train moved off
towards the German frontier. Another distressing feature of the situation in Belgium arises from the
forcible importation of .Frenchmen
from the provinces of France occupied by Germany, It appears that
lhe policy of the German governnieni is to work thc Belgians in Germany and work lhe Frenchmen in
Belgium. Incidents of the most painful nature are resulting from thc impressment of these Frenchmen.
Many of them decline lo work, declaring, like the Belgians, il is intolerable lhcy should bc forced to support a Teutonic war against their
own counlry. In onc case some
thirty-five Frenchmen; for refusing
to work, were tied lo trees for
twenty-four hours and more. This
punishment failed to break iheir will,
and at last Ihey were released,

Wl.Cn you feel gloomy and depressed and cannot sleep, suspect your

are losing confidence in yourself, ami that can only mean weak nerves.
It is not natural lo be solitary and unsociable, if shows clearly lhat vitality has become reduced,
and ihe nervous system correspondingly weakened. But take Dr. Cassell's Tabids for such a
condition and you will be astonished at thc results, astonished at th. bright new health you will

Mr. Poole, a business man of 60, Infirmary Road, Sheffield, England, says :���" 1 had lost all
confidence in myself, and was actually afraid to meet people.   The alertness and activity 1 had
formerly possessed were gone. My diee*tion was feeble, and sleeplessness was terrible. But when I

Ar�� you a sufferer? Kno-r
that terrible aching, dragging-
down pain, that robs you of
{..amirs, even at rest, and makes
lite miserable T Don't you believe
Jn the law of averager If a remedy
bis cured hundreds of people, don't
you think It likely It might at least
���ure you?
Just give Zani-Hut a fair trial!
Mr. J. McEwen, of Dun-as, suffered from pilot for fifteen years.
Be says: "I tried pretty nearly
���verylhtng, but got no permanent
relief until I tried Zam-Buk. This
balm relieved the pain; continued
U�� completely and permanently

The rich herbal essences of whleh

gnawing, burning pain, and cure.

WINTER WEATHER
HARD ON LITTLE ONES
Our Canadian winters are extremely
hard on the licallh of little ones. The
weather is often so severe that the
mother cannot take the little one out
(or an airing The consequence is that
baby is confined to overheated, badly
v'entilated rooms; takes colds and becomes cross and peevish. Baby's Own
Tablets should bc given to keep the
little onc healthy. They regulate the
stomach and bowels and prevent or
cure colds. The Tablets are sold by
medicine dealers or by mail at 25
cents a box from The Dr. Williams
Medicine Co.,    Brockville, Out.
Among the reforms advocated in
Great Britain with the object of lowering the cost of living, is the. uon-
consumplion of bread until it has

"The large number of I'nited
Stales settlers coming to the western provinces of Canada arc easily
explained by the case of Mr. C. Lacy,
late of Wisconsin and later uf Alberta.
"Mr. Lacy ramc to Canada from
Wisconsin in the summer of 1914
with $1,500 available cash in his possession. Mc rented a half-section of
partly improved land in Alberta and
commenced suinincrfallov.ing. He
broke 300 acres with oats, 20 with
barley, and 260 with wheat. Also he
had two cows and 20 head of young
live slock. Hc was fortunate in buying feed at a bargain and managed to
rent lhc adjoining quarter-section as
pacture,
"A few weeks ago he decided to re-
nlizc his profits���and they amounted
to $6,000 absolutely clear from the
crop and slock. Recently he purchased from lhe Canadian Pacific Kail-
way a ready-made farm in the irrigation block cast of Calgary." Saskatoon I'roeuix.

Useless Husbands
ln a certain provincial town where
everything is up-to-date and the people arc always planning some new
scheme, a shocking thing happened,
One of the popular society women
announced a "white elephant party."
Every guest was to bring something
that she could not find use for and
yet too good to throw away.
The party, however, would have
been a great success but for thc unlooked-for development which broke
it up.

Probable Duration of War
The Earl of Derby, who is a keen
observer of war conditions, and who
is in a position to know how things
are moving, says that only a fool
would prophecy as lo the probable
duration of the war. The British people are growing more determined In
continue the fight to a satisfactorv
conclusion, he states, while "on the
whole llie Germans appear equally
determined," Plainly the distinguished statesman in question thinks lhat
it is going lo bc a struggle to a finish,
which, barring rebellions and famine
and such things, probably means a
very long way.���Montreal Gazette,

nil, as compared with the accretion
of shame and dishonor that will
clothe the German people for centuries to come. Their stern methods during the Franco-Pruss'an
war were not forgotten when the
present conflict began, How much

On Monday evening tbe many
friends of Mr, aud Mrs. Kirkwood
who are leaving shortly lor tbe
Prairie decided to give them a surprise party. The friends assembled
at the residence of Mr. Bubar, aud
proceeded to Mr. Kirkwood's en-
mass, carrying chairs, tables, and
a supply of good things. After the
surprise subsided, the company settled down lo have an enjoyable
evening at progressive whist. Two
hours were spei.t altogether too
quickly at cards. Refreshments
were served by the ladies of the
partv, and Mr. and Mrs, Kirkwood
became for a short time guests in
their own home. Alter the refreshments were over the event of the
evening look place when the company assembled presented Mr. aud
Mrs. Kirkwood with a .mall tokeu
of their appreciation and esteem.
The presentat'on took the form of
a haiiilsoine casse'ole. Mr. Colin
Cotnpbell, in a short speech voiced
the sentiments of their many friends
He reviewed tlie many activities of
the departing couple, mentioning
the many friendships they had formed, and hoped the token would be
valued for what it represented
more than ils intrinsic value. He
also extended them the well wishes
of ali prer-ent, aud hoped they
would succeed in their new field.
Mr. and Mis, Kirkwood replied in
short and appropriate remarks,
thanking the company and assuring them that the many friendships
thev have formed in Courlenay
would be deeply cherished and continually brought to memory by the
token presented- A very enjoyable
evening was brought to a close by
singing "God be with you till we
meet again" aud the National Anthem.

Rumors concerning additional
taxation to be levied iby the provincial government are not at all
scarce and tlie latest reports indicate that automobiles may be taxed
in order to supplement llie present
revenue, while the income tax is to
be enforced and arrears collected.
No one will oliject to paying the
necessary levies in order to enable
the province to pay its way, a.id
until such time .-is the natural resources bring in the amount of
money required to meet provincial
expenses. It would be well for
those who can pay taxes that are
in arrears at the present time to
make a point of paying them at an
early date and so lighten the burden

A very pretty wedding was solemnized at the home of Mrs. Geo.
Griev.i Wednesday morning Feb,

Mary A, Robertson were united in
the bonds of holy matrimony by
the Rev. T, Menzies, The gloom

parents to Comox valley, and has
gained the esteem of the entire
neighborhood, Tlie bride is a
native of Prince Edward Island
by profession a school teacher, and
taught at Sandwick with great acceptance for a year and four months
The ceremony was performed in
the midst of a host of relations of
the groom, and the bride was the
recipient of nianv useful and costly presents. After the ceremony
the happy couple motored to the
C. P, R. station; where they were
given a roval send off by their

Notes by the Way
The following figures are evidence of Canada's expanding trade
and deal with expoits of merchandise (as apart from grid and botll-
lion.)
1915 i��i6
Australia $5.234,659 ��8,255,242
New Zealand 2,817,373 3,736,319
U. S. 186,858,984 247,984.238
U.K.      251,021,871   656,504,836
New Zealand gives Canada a
preference, hence the relatively
greater trade as compared with
Australia. Australia is offering a
preference iu raw materials 10
Canada, in exchange for a similar
privilege. If such were arran^id
our trade with Australia would
jump. The great expansion iu
exports to the Mother Country is
due to foodstuffs-- and munitions,'
and should send a proud thrill
lirongli every Canadian.
The above figures represent a
trade activity that must be making
a ripple even iu the back waters.
In other words, the Comox district
must be already feeling the benefit
of the sustained revival in trade,
with every hope of still better results.

now, Canadian potatoes will bc able
to enter at any port and without inspection, the shipper signing a certificate that they are commercially

showing traces of designated diseases. The United Slates will issue

With Formation of Character

When there was some tall; of
Bonar Law being Prime Minister, lie
was described as a Canadian, but we
cannot say that our hearts .swelled
with pride at the prospect. Ue is not
really a Canadian. Me war, born hcrr,
but all the formative years of his life
were spent in Great Britain. In the
same way a boy born in Great Britain and coming out to Canada at
twelve years of age, ii a Canadian by
ihe lime he is as old a.s Bonar Law,
or sooner.
Environment has .is much lo do
villi thc formation of character as
birth or race. The Englishman is a
product of environment, lie was at
home on ihc sei because he was an
islander, lie became an explorer and
a colonist because his island home
was too small to allow scope for bis
energy.

National Organization of Women
While there is no lack of women
workers iu the old country, here is
a very distinct, lack of organization
in the utilization of a huge reserve
power, according to the ieadcrs of
the movement for a national organization of women labor. The facl
that there were over 800 applicants
for the ten vacancies recently offered to women by a certain branch
of lhe. War Office is a very eloquent
proof of this; while llic astounding
knowledge that of the 80,000 women
"V.A.I I.'s" only 12.000 arc engaged
in military hospitals, and aboul '10,000
arc giving whole or part time in

What lias been done in Belgiun*
has also been done in Poland and
northern France. First the occupied
territory was stripped of food, and
then thc alternative of death or of
service under German taskmasters
was offered. Those slow about indicating a preference for the second
were seized ami carried away. Not
since barbarian days has such a
thing been done.
German military necessity is great,
and a state, a.s Bcrnhardi was at
pains to establish, is not bound by
moral considerations. "Pity," says
Nietzsche, "is weakness." Germany
needs workers for her munition factories or for ber fields to produce
food for her armies and her munition
workers. So she disregards the restraints of international law and humanity. The baby-killers of lhc
Zeppelins, the slaughter of the Lusi-

A TALK ON RHEUMATISM
Telling How to Actually (Jure
lhis Painful Malady
This article is for the man or woman who suffers from rheumatism
who wants to bc cured, not merely relieved���but actually cured. Thc most
the rheumatic sufferer can hope for iu
rubbing something on llie lender, aching joint, is a little relief. No lotion
or liniment ever did or can make a
cure. The rheumatic poison is rooted
in the blood. Therefore rheumatism
can only bc cured when tllis poisonous acid is diriven out of thc blood.
Any doctor will lell you lhis is true.
If you want something that will go
right to the root of the trouble in tin:
blood take Dr. Williams Pink Pill:-.
They make new, rich blood which
drives out the poisonous acid and
cures rheumatism to stay cured. The
truth of these statements has been
proved in thousands of cases throughout Canada, and lhc following cure is
a striking instance, ilrs. F, M, Simpson, R, R, No. 1, Blenheim, Ont., says:
"For a long time I was confined to
my bed, and actually crippled with
rheumatism. The trouble lirst located
in my ankle���which was much swollen. I thought it might bc a sprain,
but the doctor said it was rheumatism and advised mc to go to bed so
lhat the trouble would not bc aggravated. 1 did as directed, bul instead
of getting better it spread first io
my right knee, then lo my left knee,
and then to my arm-. The limbs were
much swollen, and if 1 moved them
caused me'considerable pain. 1 seemed to get weak in other respects and
fell off in weight from 156 to HO
pounds. 1 had no appetite nnd seemed to lose interest in everything. Onc
day while reading a paper 1 came
across lhc case of a rheumatic sufferer cured by using Dr. Williams'
Pink I'ills. I decided to try them ar.d
rent lor three boxes. By the time
these were gone I had certainly begun to iniproye, and with help was
abb: to get up. Continuing tlie use of
the pills I was first able to go about
with the use of a crutch, which, later
J discarded for a cane, and then
through the use. of the pills I was
able to throw aside, the cane as well,
and go about as briskly as I bad ever
done. I feel that Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills have becn a blessing lo mc, and
1 strongly recommend them to othci
similar sufferers."
You ran procure these pills through
any dealer in medicine or get them

iiomiiing as a Science
Pom ing Bombs Down a Chimney-
Slaek Cleared Out the
German-
Bombing is now one of the sciences
of war. Due moment, writes a corporal, a bomber will be burrowing
towards his quarry like a mole. He
will work out his sap in.cunning sc-
cretiveness towards bis prey. Having made his lair thus, be will wait
and observe lhe domestic habits of
his victim. There arc bombers *ho
do not hesitate to creep into the hca.t
of the enemy territory at night. It
was a bomber who played chief part
iu a lillle ruse dc guerre by which
many Germans were discomfited.
The Bochcs wcrc ensconced in a
house ruin. They had a machine-
gun, and wcrc easy to get at close
quarters, Bul after nightfall a Bti-
tish machine-gun was trained wiih
delicate care upon the door of that
house, A bomber crept in, and,
working bis way forward by devious
routes, came actually to the back of
the house. He climbed up on to its
battered roof, and from this vanlage
point he began a steady cascade of
bombs through roof-holes and cbim-
ney-stack upon the. startled Gcrmani
beneath. When they rushed out of
thc front door the machine-gun was
ready for them. That house held no
Germans in the morning. And the
only request that bomber had made
wli en he started on his hair-raising
adventure was to ask the machine-
gunner lo "Keep it pretty low, old
boy, and well towards the front side
of thc bouse, or you'll 'get mc,' my
buck, not Fritz."

history. For centuries the British
navy has been tlie dominant factor in
keeping not only Great Britain and
the Empire, but the whole English-
speaking world and its democratic
allies, such as France, free from lor-
eigu aggression. The greatest naval
officers of the United States have attributed the failure of Germany to
plant her iron heel on the American
continent to the British navy, stard-

WONDERFUL PEACE RIVER COUNTRY

From Winnipeg \ in Edmonton

written long ago, and the world would
have known much earlier of thc val
Icj of lhe Peace as one of the rlchc I,
most fertile Bcctions of lho Dominion,
Whal a lillle thing frequently turns
thc destinies of human beings. I iin
wise what a little thing often turns
iiie dcslhiles of a country, Thirty
years ago the railroad builders were
used lu studying a map of Canada
across which was marked a red bell,
reaching from lhe International
Boundary line lo a little above Calgary. This belt was marked, "llic
fertile bell," and lln: intimation was
so well believed that lo suggest building a line out of or beyond :1s boundary, was to court ridicule. The 'real
liiie then building refused to lake its
land grants beyond tlie margin of this
supposed "fertile bell." Years previously the Hudson's Bay Company
had kepi within lhe fertile belt iu
choosing the land it was lo retain in
the sale of its holdings lo the Dominion.
Time dragged on indefinitely before
it was discovered tbat grain would
grow here as fine as in any country
in the world, and there was an abundance of the "plains" wailing for
settlement. Therefore, it is not lo
bc wondered at that even with a
steady flow of settlers thirty yc.vs
would be required to fill the southern
valleys and plains of the province of
Alberta. It was not within the nature
af things tbat the Peace should havc
its turn at settlement until these more
iccessible sections wcrc pretty well
Blh d up.
ils turn came, however. For many
years men of vision kept their eyes
on thc great valley that lay along "the
big river of the north. They read
every little scrap of evidence as to ils
fertility. They buttonholed the travellers who returned from its inner recesses. Newspapers primed ;.!1 the
information they could get nold of
and in time almost all the civilized
world had heard of the wonderful va'
ley.
Then onc day without any .loisc or
clamor, there started from Edmonton
the two steel rails pointing north?
This was five years ago. People
knew very little of the mail behind
the scheme, only ihey knew he had a
vision, and notwithstanding many
ventures along the .same line had
been started and failed, there was a
general feeling that this man would
succeed,
For lhc few years previous lo this
lime hardy pioneers had been venturing inlo lhe country and were already beginning to produce bountifully from the virgin soil. The starting of actual stcei laying gave a new
impetus to lhc movement so that by
the spring of 1914 many of lhc different sections of the great valley h.d
settlements of considerable size, and
farming operations had been pushed
on until it was felt that the experimental point has been well passed.
The laud was yielding as they had
been told it could and would, and
flock was doing so splendidly that
every settler was trying his best to
increase his herds.
Year by year lhc line of steel crept
north, It crossed ihc Athabasca, (r
skirled the hundred miles of Lesser
.Slave Lake. It divided at Round
Lake, sending onc branch to the ullage of Peace River, tlie other branch
going to Grande Prairie, and liie
main line continuing to Spirit  River.
Year  by  year,   loo,  the  inflow    of
-Cillers continued, Trading posts were
established, villages sprang up, rural
centres were formed, mail route., c-
tablislicd, school districts were form
td anil churches were built. In tin
meantime teams of oxen and horses
were slipping thr: breaking plo s
llirougli the black sod and crops wcrc
planted, There was no disappoin*.
ment for in every case where ordmarv
care was exercised the reward was
wonderful.

Screenings Go Across Border
Americans Eager Buyers and Product
Comes Back as Patent
Preparation
Thai nil i'onl seeds taken from grain
at Fort William and Port Arthur
should be confiscated by the government and converted inlo meal for the
use of stock raisers and dairyment of
the west, is the opinion emphatically
expressed by W. A. Mathcson, of tne
Lake of the Woods .Milling Company.
He said lhis valuable material was
being sent to .Michigan and Wisconsin
by shiploads, where it was enriching
llic fanners of those states engaged
in the livestock industry, while our
farmers were badly in need of it.
"Our screenings arc compensating
the farmers of Michigan and Wisconsin for the loss of their pine forests,"
said Mr. .Mathcson, "and for the life
of me 1 cannot understand what our
farmers organizations arc thinking
of. If ihey would look after matters
like this instead of spending so much
time trying to remedy real or fancied
troubles by legislation they ivould be
belter off.
"If I were llie minister of agriculture 1 would confiscate all these
screenings and put them in a small
inexpensive plant to convert them into meal lo bc shipped back to lhc
prairies to be fed to slock on the
farms. A lot of grain cars have io
bc brought back empty and I am sur.
the railway companies would be glad
Jo haul the meal for a dollar a ton.
To this would have to bc added the
cosl of grinding so that farmers
would be able to secure il at a nominal price.
"American buyers are now paying
ton  for the stuff at  the    lake
$6
trout elevators, a fart that indicate.,
its value as a stock food. The Grain
Growers' Grain Company sell their
screenings to lhc Slates the same as
olhcr conipnnics, lhc $6 a Ion evidently looking better to them than the
needs of the western farmers, However, as none of llie grain dealing
companies appear lo interest llieni-
sclves in the mailer, I think lhe government should lake thc action I
suggest.
Last slimmer we alone sold 180,00(1
bushels of wild nats io American
buyers. This will give you an idea
ofthc quantity of screenings thai is
being shipped out every yean���hey
go by shiploads. I have no "doubt that
our farmers arc buying much of tin's
stuff back in the form of patent stock
foods at fancy prices by the sack or
cake, while Ihey should bc getting il
lor a couple of dollars a ton or less.
1 would advise lhat it be kept out jf
private hands entirely. I believe that
James D. McGregor, of Brandon,
called attention to this matter some

Experience   of  Ship   Captains Who
Were Captured by a Submarine
A grim talc is told by Captain Cur
tis, of ibe American steamer Columbian, which was destroyed by a tier-
man submarine. Captain Curtis
says: "My ship carried a cargo nt
about 9,000 Urns and n crew oi 109,
We were all saved. I stopped on
the demand of the submarine, whose.
commander ordered me to abandon
my ship with the crew immediately,
which we did without other baggage
than two satchels with documents
and money.

Immediately sank. The crew were

"I was taken inlo the quartcrmas
'er's small  cabin, where   I  found the
captains of the Setanio and    l3nlto,
After mc    came die captain  of tlie
.Norwegian ship Fordalo.
The cabin was very small. ll
contained a lillle folding table n
folding chair and three wall bunks.
All were permeated with the odor
of ben.inc. There was no communication with the exterior cabin. H
was absolutely dark bolh by nighl
and day.
"Wc were given each morning a
few morsels of black bread, a cup
of coffee, and a small portion of bad
butter. At noon we had stew made
of canned meat and soup. Supper
was at 10, consisting of colTec or tea,
with butter or marmalade, flours
passed in this narrow prison, very
long and disagreeable. The captain
of the_ submarine was a man about
.'iu, while the crew of AO sailors wcrc
all very young and were dressed in
shiny leather clothing."
They were allowed at intervals between the operations of tlie .iibmar
ine to go on deck and smoke a cigarette. They were watched by members of the crew armed with revolvers, but when they went below thc
crew put aside their weapons. There
was only one chair in the cabin,
which tlie captains used in turn,
otherwise lhcy lay down in their
bunks.
_ The submarine signalled to lhc
Swedish steamer Varing, when 13
miles off the Spanish port of Cam-
arin'a, towards noon on the Dili. _ be
steamer stopped and was ordered to
take on board the captains and land
them. She was also ordered lo take
on board thc crews of lhe. Columbian
and of the Norwegian steamers at
the same time.
All were welcomed on board the
Varing'. The submarine watched
the operation and Ihen ordered llic
Varing to make direct for lhe coast,

What C nada Haa Done
By C. W. Eliot, President Emeritus
of Harvard
The Canadian people have made
three important contributions to the
moral influences of lhc great war in
lime to conic. They havc demonstrated:
That a free and vigorous people,
given to both agriculture and manufacturing, which has never maintained a profession of arms or a professional army, can develop in six
monihs lo a year a democratic army-
of high martial spirit and great efficiency.
That love of free institutions and
love of country are motives strcng
enough lo induce lhc mass of a free
people to relinquish temporarily llic
usual liberty of the individual and
some precious public liberties, in order that the Stale may conduct a
just and necessary war with thc utmost energy.
That Canada is taking, and is to
lake, her full share in unifying and
consolidating the world-wide British
Commonwealth, and in putting it resolutely on the patli of sober democratic  progress.

Shrewd Buyers
Getting Best Lands;
Caii.nli.iiiK and Americans Think Now
Is Fine Buyinj Time
A Calgary firm has recently sold
$376,000 worth of choice Uberta land
to Alberta farmers, and sales have
been made amounting io over S200,-
000 to buyers from the Slates.
Most of the land sold to Alberta
buyers has been purchased by prosperous Alberta farmers, who know
the value of these lands and the purchasers have been anxioi
Iheir holdings while the
bought at a low price,
Tbe buyers from the Slates have
been mostly wealthy wheat farmers
from Oregon and Washington, who
know the value of Mbcrta's choice
wheat land, and Ihey have, bought the
best land aud paid lhc higher prices
that have been paid tllis year for improved land-', and lhcy luvc made
large cash payments.
After the war is over there will bc
a great demand for mixed fanning
lands in Alberta, and there will bc
thousands of buyers come to \lbcrta
who will not be able lo buy choice
wheat land, as these lands will soon
be beyond tire reach of men wi'b
small means, but lhcy can purchare
cheap dairy and mixed farming lands
it prices and on terms that will be
safe for ihem to buy oin and while
these lands may not raise N'o. 1
wheat, thc purchaser will probably
find that he can raise some fairly
good wheal even on the cheap lands
lhal arc not considered Lite best land
for wheal  at  tllis  lime.
The fact that lhc farmer;
berta arc well satisfied with
has been proven by the fact lhat ihey
are in many eases buying more land,
and arc building line houses and
barns. They arc taking more interest in inning the roads improved as
most of the fanners in the. wheat districts are buying automobiles, and,
of course, ii is natural that anyos-e
owning an automobile and who uses
it in the country should bc interested
in having good roads.
Thousands of acres of the lands
that have been bought this year have
been developed during the spring and
summer, and a larger acreage wi'l
be developed next spring. Alberta
has entered into an era of prosperous
years, and the cities will bc greatly

It Pays to Spread Straw
Land   Becomes   Poorer   Each   Year
Unless Straw Is Returned
To It
We used to burn lhc straw stacks
or allow them to decay, lhat was a
wasteful process; but we did not
know any belter. If we wanted to
dispose of a straw -tack, we thought
the quickest and easiest .ray was lo
burn it; wc wasted lhe straw by
burning it arid also burned lhc life
from the soil which produced llie
straw.
Sine; we found that a ton of straw-
has a fertilizing value of $2.50 wc are
spreading it upon the fields. Straiv
contains a large percentage of nitrogen���more nitrogen, in fact, than is
in the actual grain, and also contains
other plant foods. This is why land
becomes poorer each year unless the
straw is returned to it.
Wc use a straw spreader for distributing the straw ovcr the surface of
the fields. The spreader not only
breaks and tears fresh, bright straw
and distributes it in a swaih sixteen
to twenty fr.ct in width, but also will
take hold of old, partly decayed
stacks that arc compressed into hard
chunks, wet stack bottoms, ur straw
in any condition, and spread it evenly and at a proportionate depth,
_ We find that straw used as a fertilizer does much towards conserving
the fertility of the soil. Humus is
added and a mulch is created which
not only benefits the growing crops,
but also prevents the soil particles
from drifting away with the wind.
When we made sporadic attempts
to spread straw before buying lhe
spreader, wc found lhc work was
siow. It took a long lime to cover an
acre of ground, when spreading by
band, and wc found it next to an impossibility to make an even distribution.

A Chance for Thrift
Bullet-Proof Jackets
In many instances the evolution of
modern military uniforms and arms
has been marked by a,return to types
of ancient and medieval days. Perhaps the sleel helmet is the most
striking example of this tendency.
Now a London linn has patented and
is manufacturing a steel-lined officer's
jacket which sugga^s the old coats of
mail, though in Wtward apearance
it resembles an ordinary close-fitting
coat. It is claimed thai the jacket
will resist a .5-callbrc revolver bullet at .'0 yards.   Popular Mechanics,
