Having received complaints from
Mr, G. Ritchie, Hornby Island,
with >_gard to a loss of some 30
sheep out of a flock of 100, Game
Warden H, B. Dawley, accompanied by Gamewarden 0. Holts, from
Campbell River, proceeded tkere
m the government launch "Walla"
to investigate the matter. While
on their way there thev heard a
shot about t 1-2 miles off and saw
a boat with two men in it. They
headed for them and found a Hollander, J. Caljoun, aud a Swede
named Felix Holm. The former,
who had his Holland papers was
arnud with a Mauser automatic
pistol, rifle stock attached, but
could produce no license, aud con-
sequ;ntly the game wardens confiscated the weapon pending further
enquiries. On reaching Mr.
Richie's ranch on Hornby Island,
Game Wardens Dawley and Holts
examined the ground and discovered the remains of eight sheep with
in a radius of 200 yards from a
spring. From the marks ou the
bodies they came to the conclusion
that the animals had apparently
been werried to death by dogs. At
the same time they were of the
opinion that several sheep had beeu
stolen, the thefts having been
probably committed by men going
to the Island in boats from the
mainland. The Gamewardens having done everything in tlieir power
to assist him informed Mr. Richie
that it was a matter for the police
to handle. It is to be hoped that
further enouiries will be prosecuted
as this is not the only complaint
that has beeu made by ranchers on
the neighboring Islands, and they
should be protected as much as
possible,

am now iu Woolwich and down to

here, nearly all young soldiers. I
am starting to get in shap. -o instruct Ihem I :nay go o,' , ?the
firing line at auy time, but 'I db uot
expect to go for two months, but I
might be taken at any time. They
are taking draft after draft from
this depot, we supply 11: _ from
here to the firing line, As s_ _?��� as
they are fit, away they go, .'We
are also getting lots of wounded,
some of the poor fellows have very
nasty wounds, they get sent out of
the hospital and come down here
to the depot to rest for a while aud
away they go again to the firing
line. They say things are very
tough out there. Artillery is being
used the most at the Front, the
Infantry is not doing very much,
but the poor chaps have to stay iu
the wet trenches. The drafts all
go cheerfully, and they get a right
royal send off, I can tell vou. I
am quartered in barracks but a few
milts from here there are 2,000
Territorials quartered iu tents.
They are up to their knees in mud,

THE INDIANS' GRIEF
"Bobs" Had Warm Place in the Heart
ol the Soldier
Tho last visit or Lord lloborla to the
army In the Held is described iu a
communique Ispued by the Press
Bureau. The aged Held marshal paid
visits to headquarters ol divisions ana
those ot ihe cavalry, "At each plaoe
two men i'rom each unit, British and
Indian, wero drawn up for Inspection,
and llie Held marshal paused here ana
there with 11 kindly Question, lu Hindustani, which was keenly appreciated
by those who had the honor lo represent their corps. Nearly every mau
had come stralRlil from ilie trenches;
but in spite of the severe strain
which they have undergone they looked keen, hard and soldierly, At each
hall Lord Roberts said a few words of
welcome and encouragement to the of-
llcers assembled to meet him, bidding
them as their colonel in chief to remember thai the Indian corps, the first
Imperial contribution to the empire's
armies iu the field, would be joined
by other contingent!) ono and all determined to bring the struggle against
a powerful and relentless enemy to the
only possible conclusion."
Tho news of Lord Roberts' death
was received everywhere with expressions of profound grief, aud spread so
quickly among the Indian officers and
rank and file tliat there were few who
had not heard it at the extreme flank
of the corps lino before the day was
far advanced. Only one other Englishman has attained to anything near
the place which Lord Roberts filled in
the heart of the Indian soldier, and
that was John Nicholson. But it is safe
to say that the devotion to Lord
Roberts has had a measure of human
affection In it which no other English
man has been able to command.
Dr. Blomfield, a former Bishop of
London, was a widower with children.
He married a widow with children,
and he had a family by his second

the library and said in an excited
tone: "Do come to the nursery; your
children and my children are endeavoring lo kill our children."

jetlte tremendously.

Canadians are Thanked
Tons of Foodstuffs Will be Required
to Feed the Starving Belgians
Herbert C. Hoover, chairman of the
American commission which is taking
Oharge of tho Belgian relief in Holland, has forwarded to Canada the
following statement of lhe urgent
needs of the famine-stricken people:
The American commission for relief
work in Belgium, which is composed
ot representatives ot the United
States, Italy and Spain, acting under
the authority of all belligerent governments, deslro to express their appreciation of Canada's magnificent response
In Belgium's cry of distress. 'He gives
twice who gives quickly,' was never
better proven than it was by Canada,
from which Dominion assistance was
quickly rendered.
"The difficulty ot procuring food
Btipplies in Europe and the necessities ot the people in Belgium increase
almost proportionately, until tlu hope
of help is gradually being narrowed
to reliance upon tlm generosity of
those who live on the North American continent,    Thousands of tons of
supplies, including, those brought by
the Nova Bootian 'ship Tremorvah,
havo ben distributed, yet Ihere aro
pitiful requests for assistance from
small and large Belgian villages.
"To supply the aciua! necessities
of the seven million people remaining ln Belgium, reliable authorities
estimate that 80,000-tons of foodstuffs
will be required throughout the winter.
What is most needed is wheat, flour,
corn, eornmeal, beans, peas, potatoes,
biscuits bacon and money.
"The freight nnd all shipping expenses 011 every cargo ot such supplies will gladly he paid by the commission for relief, who will also pay
all expenses Incurred in the actual
distribution of the supplies in Belgium.
"Canada, with her great resou__s,
is in a splendid position to help. Sho
has already done much, but we do
not hesitate in these appalling circumstances to ask her to do more.
(Sgd.) "HERBERT C. HOOVER,
"Chairman,"
Atrocities by Germans Told
Belgians Now Breaking Silence���Were
Afraid of Huns to Talk
Belgians, who formerly were afraid
to talk ot German atrocities, are gradually breaking their silence.
At Aiidennc, which was practically
destroyed, according to Alfred Lens, a
Belgian, the Germans killed 400 civilians, many of whom we:: business
men.
"The chief of police told ilie," said
Mr. Lens, "that C5 civilians were
locked in a church and told that they
would be shot within 30 minutes.
Every five minutes a soldier would
enter to remind the unfortunate that
they liad so many minutes left to live.
When the half hour had expired, all
were brought out led before a file of
soldiers and lined up in a row.
"Some wished to cover their eyes,
but the soldiers forced down their
arms with bayonets. They were kept
in this agony ot suspense for another
half an hour, before tha order was
given to lire. So fierce were the repeated volleys that the dead were
hardly recognizable. Any who showed signs of life were promptly despatched either with the butt end of a
rifle, or a bayonet.
"The town was thoroughly looted,
the soldiers sparing not even the
homes of the poor, while the jewelery
shops were stripped of their stocks.
Two hundred and eight houses were
set on fire.
"I counted in n ditch _.'iS civilians
who had been shot.
"In Dinant, civilians, as the world
has already heard, perished by the
hundreds. Perhaps 1,000 were killed.
The men were shot, in the presence
of their wives and children. They
were first riddled with rifle bullets
and then cut Into shreds by machine
gun lire.
"The commander adopted a lofty
tone in regard to the whole matter,
asserting that thesi methods were
necessary in order that the Belgian
nation might be properly impressed.
Ile was to retrain from acts calculated to prolong the horrors of war. He
said that the Belgians had killed
enough Germans in Liege _n"d 'sniped'
enough unsuspecting soldiers to warrant 'any sort nf retribution whatever.' "

ROUNDED UP UHLANS
Exciting Sport With Aeroplane and
Motor Cars
A vivid story of a chase of Uhlans
is given by an officer of ihe Army
Medical Corps, in a letter to friends iu
Birmingham. He says: One of our
naval aviators dropped in to breakfast the other day. He has been having, a topping time in conjunction with
the armoured cars. When we got
here the district was overrun by
small parties of Uhlans, who were a
nuisance, so the naval man collected
a few good English motor cars, put
bits of steel plate round ihem, and
followed the aeroplane round the country.
"When the aviator spotted a party
of Uhlans he signalled down to the
cars where they were. One of the
cars waited and the others went
round, and, having fixed a time, they
came on the beggars from all sides
and potted them with Maxims. The
whole district was clear in a fortnight."

BROKE THE  RECORD
World's Record For Tunnel-Boring Is
Broken on tl e  C.P.R.  Rogers'
Pass Tunnel
World's   records   for   tunnel-boring
havo  been  established    by    Messrs.
Foley Bros., Widen and Stewart, cou-j
tractors 011 tho C.P.R. Rogers' Pass
tunnel  schuuie.     Last  month,   states
Mr. a. 0. Dennis, superintendent ot'
construction for the contractors, 817 j
feet   of  the  "pioneer"   heading -the
preliminary shaft running parallel to
the main passage, from whicli operations are directed at several points���
was excavated. The American recu-d'
for a month's tunnel boring was 8in
feet and this feat was Accomplished In
til   days,   while   Ihere   was   only   lit)
days Inst month.
The maximum amount of excavation
on  a  tunnel  heading   for  a  day  was
formerly :to feet this projection being
accomplished <>u tl.e . implon tunnel
through the Alps. This record was.
eclipsed one day last month on the
tunnel througb the Selkirks when 87
feet wns excavated. The world's record
was beaten also for a wee!;, 22 feet
of rock being bored.
As 11 result of the rapid progress
now being made with the tunneling
operations,   tho contractors are now
eonlldent. that Ihey will put Hie Kegel's' I'asa tunnel through several
months  earlier  than   their    contract
wiih the Canadian Paclflo calls   for.
The live mile, double tracked passage
though the base of .Mount Macdonald
is to he ready, according to the terms
of the linn's agreement by the end
of 1910, At the. present rate of projection it is estimated that the tunnel
will he completed in the summer of
1916.
There remains 10,000 feet ot the
"pioneer" shaft yet to be driven, 10,-
840 feet hnvlug already been bored.
At the west end of construction 81.7
feet of the preliminary shaft ,and 010
feet of the main passage was excavated last month. From lhe eastern portal 527 feet of the former and 688 feet
of the latter was projected.
Although tho work has been well
advanced the hardest art of the actual
boring bas yet 90 be done. Mr. Dennis states that the next two miles
through the heart ot the mountain
will have to be dug out of a particularly hard kind of rook.

Conclusive Evidence That Dr. Chase's
Ointment Cures  Itching   Piles
Mr. John tl. McDonald, Pletou,
M.S., writes: "1 used Dr. Chase's Ointment for itching piles, and found that
the lirst application gave relief. After
using a few boxes of the ointment l
was. completely cured, and can recommend it highly to all sufferers from
this disease. You I ave my permission
to use tliis letter for the benefit of
others."
Mr. James M. Douglass, Superior
Junction, Out., writes: "For about
six years 1 suffered from piles, and
often could nol work for two or three
days at a time, so great was tlie suffering from pain and itching, Doctors
treated nie in vain, and I tried many
treatments before 1 came across Dr.
Chase's Ointment, Two boxes of Dr.
Chase's Ointment cured me, and for
several months I have had no return
of this annoying ailment."
There enn be no doubt that Dr.
Chase's Ointment is the most effective
treatment obtainable for every form
of piles. GO cents a box, all dealers,

"I'm going to lave yez, mum, today.    I'll not stay any longer."
"Uoing to leave?" cried Mrs. Allen,

"Well, muni,'' said the girl, "when I

"Why, yes, so 1 did,*' said the mistress. "That showed that I trusted

Child Prodigies a Danger
Precocity Indicates One-Sided Development
Says Lewis M. Terniau In Ihe
Kuril in:
All writers on the precocity of genius havo noted the fre(|Uoney with
which it Is confined to particular lines,
while iu other respects Ihere may bo
Do unusual promise. Tho mathematical prodigies, for example aro, as a
class, notoriously one-sided In tlieir
ability, as aro also the wonder children ot music and the s'ngo. The pro-
ooclty of tho latter la confined chiefly
to   their  emotional   development.
The narrowing o" InterestH and talents Is always nn event to bo deplored, and against its premature appearance, parents and teachers should religiously stnnd guard. Sometimes
children who could bo fitted for quiet
nnd useful lives an "staged" on account of some Insignificant gift ot nature, such as ability to perform feats
of memory or ot nrllhmetica) calculation, with the result that all tho
other Interests atrophy and tho personality dries up. The emotions become distorted, and nothing remains
but a caricature of what a human being should bo. Under this kind of
treatment even the rudiments of common sense sometimes disappear, leaving the person practically an Imbecile
In all respects except his particular
gift.
All mothers can put away anxiety
regarding tlieir suffering children
when they have Mother Graves' Worm
Exterminator to give relief. Its effects
are sure and lasting.
Here is a prescription which has
obtained circulation in England:
Mix some Woolwich Powders witli
Tinct of Iron or Essence of Lead, and
nister in pills (or shellB). Have
ready a little British Army (a little
goes a long way), some Brussels
Sprouts and, 1.enctt Mistered. Add
a little Canadian Cheese and Australian Lamb and season with tlie
best Indian Curry. Set lt on a Kitchener and keep stirring until quite
hot.

perspire freely, rub the best Russian
Bears' Crease on. his chest and wrap

"Wo liad a nightmare walk for niuo
days and nights, wtlh hardly a rest,"
says a British officer.
"I don't think we ever had three
hours all told to eat or sleep. As for
eating, lt was seldom we could boil
water for tea, and our meat had to be
thrown away because we could not
arrange to cook it. For several days
together I, at least, never had any
meat, and walked my boots off. I
sometimes fell on my knees from
sheer exhaustion, but after a little
rest began the eternal tramp again.
"For the last two days I had practically if not literally, nothing to eat
and no sleep. And then I saw u
chunk of bread lying by the roadside. I rushed at it, and a chauffeur
in a motor car a little further on asked me, 'Are you hungry, sir?' I replied
that I thought I was, and he produce;!
a pot of apricot jam and threw it to
me. If you believe me, 1 actually
cried for hunger, and the tears burs!

Valiant Resistance won Tributes from the Enemy
For various reasons, France has with tlie French people hav
teemed during the past two months
to have partially dropped out ot
American thought and sympathies.
Throughout August and the llrst part
of September, her apparently Impend-
I-' ing tragic fate was ever present to
our minds.    Next after Belgium, she
I most appealed. Uut Binco lhu staying
of the tide of invasion north of Paris,
we have somehow given less attention
to the place or the French in the tor-
rlblfl coil of war. Doth the pathos
and the crisis of the struggle have appeared to be located elsewhere. And
the great qualities displayed by lho
French people, during all this time of
tlio trying of tbelr souls, have not
Impressed themselves upon our con-
iclousncm. and .our imagination so
powerfully as Ihey might have been
expected to do, At least, so it might
tie judged from cu cut talk aud the
drift of discussion and the perspective of thi war new*. ' .
Hut few words need he spent upon
the military aspects of lhe matter.
That the French army surprised the
world, is g< rally admitted.   And it
ls worth while noting upon what
point admiration of It hns focused.
This was Its splendid recovery of
spirit afler Initial defeats. That was
scarcely looked for. When German
army afler German army drove back
the French in August, when there
were evidences of uncertainty and
confusion in tlie French military
plans, when more than one French
general ln command was guilty ol incompetence or worse, it looked as if
the boasts of the German bulletins
might be better justified than we like
to admit, and that "Gen. Joffre's army
was incapable of further resistance."
But all this was soon proved false.
The morale of tlie French army reasserted itself promptly; and the valiant and determined and inexpugnable front which it has since opposed to the Germans has wrung tributes from even the enemy. The
transformation of tlie dashing French
trooper Into the soldier with a bulldog grip has been described by the
president of the French republic. "As
the course of the hostilities lias gone
Us way," wrote M. Polncare to the
minister of war, "the French soldier,
wliile losing nothing of his impetuosity and callage, bas learned by experience to adapt his natural qualities
to the demands of the military operations. He maintains an unequalled
power on the offensive and at the
same time schools himself In patience
and ln tenacity." The known facts
bear out the assertion.
It ls, however, mainly the manifestation of French national character
away from the actual lighting that
kindles admiration. Even the ardent
lovers of France could hardly have
counted upon so fine an exhibition.
Most of the traits which we proverbially and all   too   lightly   associate

Indians Much Changed
Hospital is Well Equipped
Building Which is Being Prepared to
Receive Wounded Will be Up-
to-date  in  Every  Detail
High above tlie smoky, crowded
streets of London, on one of those
hills that mount to the wide playgrounds of Hampstead Heath stands
the hospital where, unless plans are
changed, the Canadian wounded will
be brought. Throughout the building
now echoes the hammer of the carpenter. There is a strong odor of fresh
paint and from' the cellar comes a
clatter and clang of metal that tells
of work being done.
Everything that can be done to
make Mount Vernon Hospital as comfortable as possible for the men from
Canada whom bullet or shrapnel may
shatter is planned. The entire building, not an ancient one, is being renovated. And when the work is completed the institution will be one of
the hest for surgical work in Great
Britain. ^
Tlio hospital was originally built
for consumptives. The site was chosen
that the patients might enjoy rresh
air and sunlight.   It Is an ideal spot.
But a hospital for consumptives Is
not exactly the place to put wounded
men. Ma'ny changes have to De
made. So the carpenters and the
painters were called in, and a contract was given for the installation
of a central heating plant, to replace the grate fires which used to
glow in every ward.
The building has been disinfected
from cella. to roof. The walls are
losing their greyness under the
brushfes of the painters and more
cheerful tints light up the corridorB
and rooms. Partitions are being
knocked down and others are going
up. Operating rooms where the invading germ may be fought successfully back are being equipped. When
the Canadians go to the front all will
be ready.

this was less Chan a week before he
met his death.

British Praise For Bravery of German

Whatever deterioration there maybe in the material now being drafted
into the ranks of our enemy, it must
be admitted, says "Eye Witness" in a
report from headquarters, that tbe
Prussian war machine ..a. obtained
the" most remarkable results. The
Germans have up tc the present been
able to make good their ;osses, to
continue to deliver repeated blows
with fresh men waen inquired and
where required, and to concentrate
largo forces In different directions. It
is true that a considerable proportion
of the masses recently thrown into
the field against the British has consisted of easily trained and Immature men; but the great fact remain,
that these ill assorted levies have nol
hesitated to advance against highly
trained troops.
In spite of lack of officers, in spi:e
of inexperience, boys of sixteen and
seventeen have faced our guns, niarcn-
ed steadily up '.o the muzzles of our
rifles, and have met death in droves,
without flinching.

Ldar, Dhiraj Shri Dolat Singh, when
he passed through Cairo on his -way

To illustrate the present mariial
ardor of tlie Indian the Maharaja told
the pathetic story of his own military
secretary. After bidding farewell to
his master, this secretary assembled
his family and close friends. He said
good bye to them and then shot himself dead, overcome with anguish that
he could not accompany his master to
the field of battle.
The Maharaja is the filth of tlie
Indian princes who have left. India on
active military service. He is the
adopted son of the celebrated Sir
Pertah Singh.

He said the Maharaja of .lodpur,
seventeen years old, was anxious, despite his youth, to get into the fighting. His mother supported him in this
desire. Finally he wrote to the viceroy saying: "Why am I not allowed to
go? I have three brothers, so if I
am killed in battle it does not matter."

Canadian   Indians   Are   Influenced   by
Modern Surroundings
The number o' Indians in Canada
remains approximately at one hundred
thousand, according to the annual report of the Department of Indian Affairs. The actual population, including Eskimos, is placed at 107,221. an
apparent decrease of 2,718 as compared with lhe previous year. This,
however, does not mark an actual decrease in numbers by death or emigration, but Is due to the fact that it is
difficult to secure accurate statistics
for the interior of the far north, and
it was thought hest to eliminate from
the census returns that were merely
conjectural.
In Manitoba for tlu1.year there was
a decrease of 532, in New Brunswick
11, and In Prince Edward l_and 4. In
Ontario the Indian population increased by 312, BritiBh Columbia 10S,
Yukon 138, Quebec 1)2, Saskatchewan
80, Alberta 52, an ! Nova Scotia 32.
The report states that, the general
health of the Indians was good
throughout the year.
Owing to the steadily increasing
measures adopted for providing medical attendance for the red men the
increase oT the native medicine man
is now restricted. As years go by
there is a marked change in the manner in which many of tlie Indians are
living. Modern influences are becoming very noticeable on llie reserves,
ind it is now by no means uncommon to find Indian homes decently
furnished aud comfortable. The total
value of grain and root crops raised
by the Indians during the year was
$1,856,42-1, an increase of $208,608 as
compared  with  the  previous  year.

The French army have always taken

tbe system appears to have been introduced during the Spanish war of
1823. This was before the introduction of postage stamps but it affords
an interesting parallel. The officer in
charge was called a commissary, and
there was au inspector wiih ?acli army

Then, there were postmasters, and
quite a small army of couriers and
postillions���called sous employees. All
were uniform, but were ranked as non-

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18, 1915
We do wish the school board
would pay their male teacher salary
enough or find hi iii work enough
to keep him busy. It's an old add-
age that ".Satan finds sonic mischief still for idle hands to do,"
and is proving true in his case.
We refrain from mentioning some
of the mischief he has been into
lately. His latest calumny is to
try to make us believe that because
he says the council did not waste
%600 it is so. The Editor of The
HeraTd takes himself too seriously
altogether. He may be a nice
little man, but he must be good,
and he must not think that because he lias to call the neighbors
in to help that we do likewise.
to ridicule anyone through the
columns of The Review. Their
public action;, have been criticized
with some levity it is true; but
with justice, even The Herald rul-
mits theie is "some petty squabbling which Isbecoming frequent."
The Review is goodnatured however, and some one has to be the
goat, so The Ik-raid shies itsslmtts
at us- Well, let Itiin keep ou
shooting, Some day we will get
right up on our hind legs and butt
him out of business.
The Herald goes a long way out
of its way to question Mayor Kil-
patrick's ripht to ask any of the
ratepayers present at a council
meeting to speak their mind on
questions affecting their interests.
W.e would remind the Editor of
The Herald that he is not a ratepayer, and it is none of his business what the Mayor and Aldermen of this City do, and furthermore, the Mayor has a perfect right
to ask anyone to speak on any
question at any time, whether he
be an Alderman or not. The Mayor committed no breach of ete-
quette The Aldermen had "spoken" their views and committed
them to writing before the Mayor
asked anyone else's opinion whatever .
The   Herald   again  exposes its
I ignorance   when    it    claims   its
charges ate "Union  Rates."   We
I have been a member of the Union
I for upwards of twenty-five years,
and have our " Honorable " Card.
I Two others of our  staff have the
1 same; and wc have the union label
in our office.
W- have never heard of " Union
Rates" until last week. Our
charges were fixed by the B. C.
Government for legal advertising.
Our job work charges are the same
as used bv the Printers' Board of
Trade of Vancouver and Victoria
and is quite correct.
The Herald boasts of its large
number of readers '' which so
greatly outnumber those of The
Reviec." Now, just to make it
interesting we will wager that Tlie
Review's paid subscribers outnumber The Herald's four to one; and
we will also go one better aud give
a barrel of flour to the poor if we
did not print and sell over five hundred and fifty copies more than
The Herald did last week.
No clear, you don .[have to say
it. No one will believe it even if
you swore to it.
Lets see, didn't one or two of the
applicants for the position of City
Clerk offer the free use of safe and
typewriter? How will the "Economy" section of the Council view
the proposal to purchase a safe and
a typewriter? Verily, the ratepayer are going to pay dearly for
their "Economy" Aldermen this
year.
It is quite true that the Editor
of The Review, out of the largness
of his heart (I mean purse) gave
sundry advertisements to The Herald���but sorry to say we got
absolutely no results from them.
Therefore as an advertising medium
cannot speak very highly of The
Herald. We might mention the
fact that all the successful election
candidates had their cards in The
Review.
The Herald man had a bad attack
of ''Review" last week, or else
his bitters didn't agree with him.
He says there is an organized attempt being made to ridicule Aid.
Johnston and other members of the
council. Such a thought as that
could only orginate in a beft'ddled
mind. No one, either anonymously   or   otherwise,   has   attempted
We would call the attention of
our readers to the stem necessity
of increasing production this year
and for many reasons; first of all
from the point of view of patriotism
to make the Empire more self-supporting and less dependent upon
outside sources; secondly from the
economic standpoint, to make up
for the absence from the land of
those who have gone forth to fight,
and thirdly because it is certain
that food production this year will
be more profitable than ever it was.
It may be argued that the prices
of such things as potatoes and eggs
at present are extremely low as
compared with past vears, bnt this
is due to local industrial depression
and the fact that a large number
of those who are now in the fighting ranks were not food producers
but food consumers. We have it
upon the authority Of Lord Kitchener that Britaiii will begin to fight
in deadly earnest about the beginning of May, by wh'ch time the
bulk of her troops will be in the
field, requiring to be fed together
with those of France, Belgium aud
Russia, which countries will have
drawn deeply upon their own food
stocks. The reduced cost of labor
should enable more land to be
cleared as should the smaller amount
of roadwork this year, and the individual who places under cultivation land previously idle, or plants
to greater intensity, will be congratulating himself before the close
of this year of grace. The astute
prairie farmers have taken this matter to heart and Western Canada
will have something to show next
harvest. Why should not the
people of B. C. also rise to the occasion?   We leave it with you.

CITY COUNCIL
The City Couucil met on Monday evening. The Mayor was in
the chair and all members present
when the proceedings started.
After the reading and adoption of
the minutes, communications were
read from C. G Callin, re lease, in
which he stated that he could not
consider the allowing of any other
business to lie carried on in the
council chamber except the business
of the city.
Alfred M. Jones wrote asking
for the position of Pound-keeper,
and enclosed a number of references
as to ability, character etc. The
letter was filed for future consideration .
A letter from the Attorney
General was r;ad in answer to the
Council's recommendation that C.
G. Callin be appointed Police
Magistrate, which pointed out that
as tlie Government had to shoulder
all the responsibility of the incumbent of the position, the Government would have to select the appointee.
E. H. Peterson wrote that the
street lighting committee had
enough monev on hand to light
the streets for another two months
and wanted the Council to take
over the lighting after that date,
otherwise they onlv had enough
money for one mouth, and guarantee one dollar per mouth light for
balance of year. Referred to
utilities committee.
J. Aitken wrote that the-proposed tax of $50 was too high for the
Express Company, and if it was
insisted upon the Company would
likely withdraw from the city. Reduced to $5.
An account from A.  W.   Brown
for $43.30 for chairs and table was Aid. McDonald  put it
referred to the Finance Committee,  advised the Aldermen to
���ome unnecessary work had been
done. The Majcr stated that the
Board of Works had power to expend not more t! nn fifty dollars.
A motion to restrict this committee was made, 1 nd the Mayor refused to put the motion.
Aid. Johnston said he could produce a .elegram Irom a K. C. stating that the mot'on had to be put.
The matter will come up again
at a future meeting,
After K. H. Peterson's communication had beeu referred to
the Utilities Ccmmittee. Alderman Johnston wi nted to know if it
was the intention of the Committee
to execute any bargain or to make
a report. The Mayor said thev
would make a report.
Aid. Robertson said a committee
could make a bargaiu,
Aid. Johnston, "Well your worship, I protest against any committee doing anything in defiance of
this council."
Aid. Leighton said Aid. Johnston
apparently had something to say,
and wished he would say it.
Aid. Johnston retorted "I have
said it,"
Another motion was then put.
that Mr. Peterson's letter be placed
on file until a lighting by-law was
formed
Aid. Robertson brought up the
matter of a safe and typewriter,
The Mayor said it was a little too
soon to bring these matters up,
1 The Mavor then introduced
Mayor Parnham and the Couucil of
Cumberland, who said they hsd
just come down to see the street
lights, and incidently to to pay a
faternal visit to the Council, They
congratulated the city upon haying
such a splendid lighting system.
It beats Cumberland all hollow, and
is a credit to Courtenay, is the way
He also
work   to-
civic chair, as he was one of Cumberland's first Aldermen, and made
a good record for himself.
Aldermen Cook, Hanks, and
Henderson also made a few feli
citous remarks.
Aid. Kirkwood, seconded by Aid
Leighton, moyed a hearty vote of
thanks to the members of the Cumberland Council for tlieir visit, to
which Mayor Parnham replied.
The Council then went iuto committee of the whole to discuss the
Trade by-law, clause by clause.
The first clause to go by the
board was the Saloon license clause,
none will be issued.
The bottle license clause will
have to stand over because some of
the Aldermen were not sure of how
much more than a pint bottle a
licenser could sell.
The Hotel license fee stands at
one hundred and twenty five dollars every six months, although
Aid. Johnston was strongly of the
opinion that it should be $250,
Aldermen Robertson and Crompton thought that 125 was enough
now, but if times improve the
hotels might be asked to pay more.
Automobiles will be added to the
cabs, etc.
The banks tax was reduced to
$25 half yearlv.
Express Company's tax was reduced to $5 per year.
The Telephone Company license
was reduced to $20 every 6 months.
The Electric Light clause stands
over until the council meets the
Company ou lm___uy ati_ruouu
when tin.* Real Estate men will be
asked to state their views.
The committee rose and reported
progress.
The by-law to borrow $500 from
the Bank of Commerce was then
read a thiid time and passed.
New business
Aid. Johnston gave notice that
at the next meeting he would submit for approval of the Council, a
by-law to deal with certain standing committees, which would prevent them from spending any uoney
without first getting permission of
the Council.   Aid. Kirkwood said
gether if they wish to  accomplish
anything.
City Clerk McKinnon advised
the Aldermen not to talk too much
or they would overwork the City
Clerk, and leave a lot of useless
records on the books.
Aid. Carey was pleased  to   see

Mil-While, Mrs. Jolmsou, liaviug
done everything, as she Celt, to the
best advantage, took a 'bus into the
city;' there she parted with certain
.cms, brooches, bracelets, etc., to the
woman who expected a parcel from
her almost dally, Shu wns au well
known in this woman, thai she got
very good U _ins tor her spoils. She
told the woman she would nol be with
hor again for some little time, and
managed to extract a hundred pounds
from her for what she hail stolen. She
then went glibly back and marched
past one of the detectives wbo was
eagerly looking tor Florence Dunbar
In her purple dress and musquash
coat-to tne blind alley where she always bad a couple of rooms when she
really wished to bide from the police,
All day Ions poor litlle Barbara had
been alone, all during that long and
terrible day. The fog had lilted towards evening, which made matters a
trifle better. The door was locked;
onee a woman, who had, in tlie poor
child's eyes, a dreadful face, tapped
at the door, aud after waiting for Barbara's reply, unlocked it and brought
ln a coarse meal of meat and vegetables. She gave this to the girl and
laid:
"I'd heat ef I was you; the more
strength you 'ave the better. You'll
come to no 'arm���you're a pretty little
thing."
Then she laughed in a harsh, discordant way, and turned to leave the
room; but before she reached the
door Barbara heard ber say:
"Eh; but it's a weary life."
The next moment the girl sprang to
her,feet, caught the woman's hand,
just as she was preparing to let her-
Belt out of the room, kissed the dirty
hand, and said:
"Ob, give me my liberty, and I will
pay you hundreds of pounds! 1 know
my dear, dear uncle will givo the
money to you. Oh, let nie be free!
let mo be free! let me be free!"
Barbara uow fell on her knees; she
claspd tlie woman round the waist.
"Look ye 'ere, child���of you was to
keep in that position till Ihis time tomorrow, l could no more let yer free
than 1 could Ily; so ..list you get up;
heat your vittles, keep yer strength,
and no 'arm will come to yer. .Mrs.
Johnson ain't a bad sort, wheu all's
Baid and done, but interfere with her
���my word! 1 might as well give up
my life. Even my life wouldn't be
worth an hour's purchase. No, kiddie,
I can't '(dp yer, I'm sorry for yer, that
I be. Perhaps she could, but I can't."
Then sbe went out: of the room and
locked the door behind. Barbara, having recovered from her lirst frantic
terror and fright, determined to eat
her food. Not that she was in the
least hungry, but she knew that there
was senes in keeping up lier strength,
and with all her sweetness and her
pure angelic nature, she had a real
fund of commonsense, which never deserted her at any crisis in her life.
She therefore sat down, having first
carefully examined the room, whicli
was very dirty. There was a large
double bed in one corner, which looked
most uninviting, and which made Barbara shiver . even to glance at���so
dark were tbe blankets, so almost
black tho counterpane, so revolting
the whole appearance of the bed. Then
the poor cliild thought of her sweet little room In Dean's Yard, and tears
tilled her eyes; but she would not suffer herself to cry for long.
"I think, somehow, Ralph will save
me," she murmured; "I think, somehow, he and my dear Uncle Horace
will save me." Then she fell on her
knees and began to pray very earnestly. This prayer comforted her, and
for several hours she sat in a half-
stupifled state, hardly thinking, but
thankful to be alone.
The short day had come to a close,
and the poor cliild was in the dark.
By now, ��� the house had become
strangely, horribly noisy; men and
women tramped iip and down the
stairs; oaths tilled the air; coarse
laughter rang from one lloor to another. Barbara trembled all over.
Suppose one of these women���suppose the woman wbo had brought her
food today���came into the room! But
oo one came near her. Once she distinctly heard the voice of a man say:
"It's In here she's put her, I lien-
pore kid!"
Barbara had a sort of idea tbat she
recognized the man's voice, but was
not sure.   She trembled violently:
"Oh! God! God! help me!" murmured the poor little thing.
The room had a window very high
In the wall���there was no possible
means of escaping. The fire���a tiny
one, which had been in the grate wheu
Barbara was first brought in���had long
died out. Fortunately, however, it
was a moonlight night, and there was
r faint gas jet In the miserable street
blewo. . She went and stood by the
below. She went and stood by the
praying. Was she not the daughter of
a clergyman? Had she not always
been trained to fear God and not to
fear man? Certain comforting convictions came over her; she felt assured
that, somehow, she would be saved in
the end.
At last, Bteps were, heard on the
stairs; she almost gave a scream.. The
door was opened; a woman, very quiet-
W.N.U. 1035
]ly dressed, entered.
I    ".My word! Bui there's not a scrap
\ ui light," sbe said.    "Are you there,
; Barbara?"
I     "Oh, Mrs. Dunbar!' said Barbara.
She   was  relieved  at  this  moment
��� that ii should be Mrs. Dunbar and no
oue else.
"Stay a moment, and I will make
ithings ctieery," said the woman.
She basiled about; she lit lhe gas,
I and soon had the lire mended and
(roaring merrily up ihe chimney; she
: pulled down lhe broken Venetian
blind and placed on llie table a little
j meal which she had purchased just
I before she entered the cul-de-sac
where Barbara was in hiding. She had

I "Aren't yon hungry?"
"Oh!" said Barbara���she looked at
ihis quiet respectably dressed woman
| in  aiiia/.enieut.
"You are not .Mrs.  Dunbar!"
"Oh, Lor', child!
Tlie woman tossed off her little hon-
i net, pulled out her abundant hair, and
' said with a laugh:
"1 have twenty names, my dear. For
the lime, 1 am Clara Johnson, a widow
j who lias lately lost her husband���that
is true enough, isn't it, Barbara��� and
! when you speak to me before others,
you will call me mother, if you please
���1 really don't much care what you
do call uie, but. mother would be best
and simplest, besides, it is true; and
when one can get a spark of honest,
dowu right truth into a dirty job, why,
1 hold to it. The main thing for me
is that 1. have been hungering for you
for seventeen years; I have been down
into hell lire, "but I have never forgotten you. I have got you at last, and
1 am not likely to let you go. Do you
know that there are at this moment
at least twenty detectives after me,
but not one of theni shall catch either you or me. Now then, cliild, cheer
up���smile at. your mother���why do
you mm from me?"
"I���want to go back," pleaded
Barbara.    "Mother!     it you are my
mother -"
"Didn't I say so, child? And, what is
more, I will no: let you go back."
"Ob, mother, 1 will send you -you
know you like money���I will send
you plenty of money, if you will let
me go!"
"I know all about, that," said Mrs.
Johnson, with a laugh. "You want to
go to Dean's Yard���a very snug, respectable place for a little girl���but
she is better oft with ber mother now
that her father is dead. No more
words, my dear. You will be surprised at the change in my appearance by and by; 1 have at least half a
dozen disguises in the next room; I
shall put on quite a fresh one before
we start for Paris, where we are going tonight."
"Oh!" said Barbara. She gave a
fearful .cry. "How awful! Won't you
be satislled with money and give me
up? You bave done without me all
these years!"
"That is true, but 1 was hungering
for you all the time. Barbara, 1 don't
want your money. See what 1 have
got today."
Here the woman put her band into
an inner pocket and drew out a fat
purse. Sbe took from it gold and
notes.
"You see, little Barbara, that money
does not tempt me���not by any
means. But 1 am disposed by and
by, It you nre very good and patient,
to bargain for a large sum to give you
back to these people, but I must have
'you for a little. My starved heart
must be fed for a little! Cliild! you
don't know tlie longing I had for you.
I'm a bad lot���there never was worse
���and your poor, good father knew it
to his cost; but in my best moments
1 thought of my little child! You
have never lived through what I have
Hved; you have never been in an Italian prison! Even the remembrance of
that place makes me shudder! Oh!
what I lived through, day after day,
night after night! No peace, no comfort, no hope! Nothing! Nothing! Nothing! The world a blank, and 1 so
restless, so eager to be up and doing,
my fingers trembling to��� Oh! child!
it's a disease; but It's on me! It's on
me! I can't help it! 1 think 1 could
steal from you, if I bad the chance!
However, I lived through that lime in
prison. I vowed then, that when I
came out I would be a straight woman! And do you know why 1 made
that vow? Because of you���because
of my baby child! 1 thought of her
little face, and���child! I am your
mother. Don't be too bard on me.
Then I returned to England; 1 broke
my word to your poor father, but 1
never troubled htm while he lived."
"Oh! Poor, poor father," murmured Barbara. She was sobbing bitterly.
"Why, do you care for me?"
"He was a good man���he has gone
to his place. Haven't you a word of
sympathy for your mother?"
"i have! I have! I am awfully sorry for you. I wish so earnestly that
you would turn round and be���be
good. Then 1 would���1 would call
you mother. We might go and live
somewhere out of Kngland and be together. If only you would keep good
���you don't know how I would love
you, I would be your child indeed."
"My child, indeed!" The woman
gave a sneering laugh. "There's no
use talking in that strain to me, Barbara. Do "you happen to know?���
well, if you don't, I'll tell you���what
the fact of goodness now would mean
to me? Well, ten years' penal servitude���ten years in prison. Do you
suppose for a moment that I am likely to go through that thorny path to
be good at the end of the time? How
old are you, Barbara? Why, of course,
I know���you are nearly twenty���you
don't look the age. My gracious, what
a life I've led! and yet the excitement
of it, the way I have slipped through
the hands of tlie police. Five years of
my time ln Kngland have been spent
In penal servitude, but all the rest of
the time I've bad my fun���yes, my
fun. There, we must stop talking,
there's some one coming up. Keep
quiet���1 can soon make you, If you

There was a bump on the stairs and
someone knocked.
"Now I have a surprise foil you, little Barbara; I'm going to be really
good to you."
Barbara looked up her heart for a
moment almost stopped heating. The
next minute the door was opened, and
Kate Jessop appeared. Barbara, with
a strangled cry, flung herself into
Kate's arms.
"Kate, Kate, Kale! you have come
lo save mc! You will save me, won't
you?"
"Of course, she will save you, my
dear, that's what she has come for.
She eau do what 1 can't. But first of
all you must bear with nie for a time.
We are, all three of us, going to Paris
tonight. 1 know lhat you haven'l
enough clothes, and you can't travel
without luggage; so 1 have got Kale
to buy you this very neat little trunk,
Let nie see what you have chosen.
Kate."
Tbe clothes, Unsuitable according
to Barbara's dainty ideas, were produced, but the girl was now so sunk
in misery, that she hardly knew what
was put before her. She sank down
speechless, dull, almost stupid, on her
chair. Mrs. Johnson bustled about;
Kate said:
"Well, ma'am, if we are  to get off

TRUE TO TRADITION
British    Soldier   Died   as  Bravely   as
Brave  Man Should
How a straggling British soldier
was captured and shot by Germans
unjustly as a spy is narrated by a
United States war correspondent.
who witnessed the execution.
"It happened at a village near
Nieuport, lie says. 1 was in my
quarters when I heard the soldiers
outside the door crying out 'Eng-
lisch! Englisch!' 1 ran oul and saw
some Chlans bringing in a man
dressed in civilian clothes but wearing a khaki shirt. He was unmistakably a British soldier. He was
a big, blonde fellow, woefully dirty,
unshaven, his hair all matted.
"Some of the German soldiers who
knew English pointed at him, shouting to me, 'Spy! Spy!' I followed
the little procession as far as a
farmhouse where the headquarters
of this German outpost were. I
knew the fellow was English, you
know, and I wanted to see fair.
"They told me they had caught
him spying, and had taken a lot. of
plans and notes away from him. I
didn't know anything about the
man myself, not even the name of
his regiment, except that I could
tell by his appearance that he was
not an officer���for all I know he
may simply have been one of the
English who were cut off in the retreat from Antwerp and was trying
to make the British or Belgian lines.
"They were in the house about an
hour. Then they brought him out,
just four men with loaded rifles and
an officer. He was not bound, but
walked quite free between his
guards, very straight and calm and
quite unmoved.
"At the sight of that Englishman
going to his ' death with eyes shining, head up and shoulders squared,
the tears fairly came into my eyes.
I forgot all about being a neutral, all
about being an American, and all
about the Germans and and just felt
I couldn't bear to see what was going
to come. As he passed me I said
aloud���I felt I had to speak���'Goodbye, old chap, and good luck!' He just
turned his head and looked at me and
smiled a little smile as if to thank me
and to say he did not mind.    .
"They stood him up in the middle
of the road. Away in the distance,
down the road a German regiment
was coming along with noisy drums
and fifes. As the firing squad���just
the four guards���stood back to take
up their positioa the Englishman
drew himself up at attention with a
click of the heels, braced his shoulders and threw up bis head, game
and brave to the last. It was all
over in a second.
C.P.R. BUYS SHIPS
Five New Vessels Mean an Outlay of
Over $7,500,000
The London Daily Telegraph's Belfast correspondent states that the
Canadian Pacific Hailway has purchased live new vessels on the stocks
in Irish and Scotch shipyards to replace the wastage caused by the war.
Three of the vessels are being constructed in Belfast and two on the
Clyde. The transaction is said to
involve considerably over _ 1,500,000
sterling.
Mrs. Newlyrich, having come into a
fortune through a lucky strike, set up
a country home near a big city, where

was showing some of her old time
friends about the place they came to
the poultry yard. "What beautiful
chickens!" the visitors exclaimed.
"All prize fowl!" haughtily explained the hostess.
"Do they lay every day?" was the
next question.
"Oh, they could, of course, but in
our position it is not necessary for
them to do so."

Tommy Atkins War Bread
Part of the  Durable  Rations Carried
by  Soldiers  While on the
March
Every army in time of war carries
what is called war bread, which
tonus a part of the durable rations,
and is intended to he eaten if necessary while on the march. The Ger
man soldier receives for his war
bread a zwieback, in which are mixed together too grammes of raised
dough and 10'grammes of cooked rice
together with salt. Beaten eggs and
sugar are added to the dou_.li lu order to improve its flavor, and to increase the nourishing power. The
proportion is 500 eggs to lt'O kilogrammes of flour. Finally, potato
flou,' is used, it is said, to prevent
the bread from growing stale too
easily, and caraway seed gives it the
necessary spic.iness.
The Austro-Hungarian soldiers
carry tlieir durable ration of bread
packed in small cotton bags. This
bread is shaped like a sausage, and
consists of wheat flour, potato flour,
eggs, .unskimmed milk, malt, cinnamon, nutmeg and yeast.
ln France each soldier receives as
his durable ration ten loaves of
bread, each of whicli is 70 millimetres long, 65 millimetres broad,
and 25 millimetres thick. In any
case, this bread does not taste as
good, nor is it as nourishing as the
Austrian bread, for the "piou-piou,"
as the French infantry man is called,
must be satisfied with a loaf which
is made only of flour, yeast and water.
The war bread of the Italians and
Roumanians is very similar to that
of France. It is, thougS, somewhat
darker and has a uniformly smooth
crust.
The Swiss soldier carries his war
bread with him in a small pasteboard box. Each of thes3 little packages contains five small loaves,
which weigh altogether only 250
grammes.
The light colored war bread of the I
English is kept in good condition :n
small soldered tin boxes.
The Belgians give their soldiers a
war bread made of flour, sugar and
eggs, each loaf having forty punctures. Holes are also pierced through
the Turkish war bread, which is
made in round disks, having a diameter of 150 millimetres, and a very
thick brown crust. ���
"What a life!" sighed the agent for

the old boy busying himself with the
fowls.
A grunt was his only answer.
"I've something here that will interest you and your good lady," he
pursued unabashed, displaying a copy
of the encyclopaedia.
"Ain't got no good lady, and don't
read," crudely observed the O.B.
"But if you have children, this���"
"But there ain't no children, either.
No one here but me and the cat!"
"Well, then," persisted the agent
desperately, "this is just the book

want to throw something really substantial at the eat?"

FRESH AIR NECESSARY
Contributed  by  Dr.  Heber Jamieson,
Professor of Bacteriology in the
University of Alberta
Fresh air is an absolute essential
to good health. The lung takes from
the atmosphere one of its gases���
oxygen, which is used to keep the
system in its normal state. Every
breath we take in carries the neces-'
sary oxygen to the small air cells ia
the lungs. Every breath we send out
is charged with another gas which Is
thrown off by the body cells as waste
material. *
The transfer of these Iwo i-ases is
made between the lungs and the small
cells of whicli the whole body is made
by means of red corpuscles of the
blood. These little messengers must
be healthy in order to do tlieir work
well and sufficient numbers must be
maintained to give the best service.
If a person becomes anaemic there is
a falling oft in the numbersof the
red cells. As each one of these can
carry only a. certain amount of oxygen at a time the body suffers in consequence of the diminished supply.
Every room contains a certain
amount of oxygen and wdien that is
exhausted the body suffers. The air
inhaled now contains the waste gas
whicli we have just disposed of and we
must therefore take it into our lungs
again and try to impose this on the
blood cells. They are not to be deluded and if the imposition is persisted in the person faints for lack ot the
.ife sustaining oxygen.
The more people there are breathing the same air the sooner it is vitiated. In the country the atmosphere
is more pure. It has been said that it
is kept pure by the farmers keeping
the foul air shut up in tlieir houses.
What truth there may have been in
this statement, as to the conservation
of impure air in the rural districts, tha
reader can judge for himself. The
dweller in cities is no less a sinner
when he sleeps in a room wllh the
windows closed "because the night
air is bad" forgetting that, night air
was designed for night breathing and
is  preferable   to   stale   day   air.
War Tourist's Friend
Baedeker, One of tne War's Victim*
Was Guide Book Man
Tourists all the world over read
with sympathetic interest the report
that Herr Karl Baedeker, the publisher of the famous guide books, had
been killed in action. This member
of the Baedeker family was one ot
the grandsons of old Karl Baedeker,
who was born at Er-sen in 1801, where
Ills father bad carried on a business
of printer and bookseller, and who
himself started in business in 1827 at
Coblentz, where ho died just over
fifty years ago. His grave in that
town ls often visited by tourists.
It was old Karl Baedeker who first
hit upon the idea of publishing a
series of guide books for the different
countries. Tlie first guide book published by Baedeker was a small book
on the Rhine, of which in 1839 he produced a third edition entirely re-written by himself. Since then guide
books for Belgium, Holland, Germany,
Austria, Switzerland, the United
States, etc., have been published In
the principal languages of Europe,
until today the word "Baedeker" has
become almost a synonym for guide
books.
Increase Force of Mounted Police
The establishment of the Northwest
Mounted Police has been increased to
1,27. the largest in its history. Over
500 have been added since the war
broke out, and the force is doing excellent work in patrolling the western
country, especially those parts where
foreign elements predominate. A
great many of them have been anxious
to go to the front, but have been discouraged as lt has been considered
that their services are : ore needed
where they are. So far, however, there
has been no trouble with the foreigners and none is anticipated.

Death of a Brave Man
"Get Cover, Boye;  They Are Firing
at You."
"Fancy being sholled by a heavy
battery for six weeks i ud only one
man killed. They have fired almost
a thousand shells. Last night they
attacked us here, but were driven
back with a loss of 600 killed and
wounded. 1 suppose you rend ln the
papers about one of our oulcers being killed. This was Lord Arthur
Hay. I was next him when he lost
his life. The Irish Guards were ordered to attack a hill on which a
party of Qermans had been posted.
The hill was covered with thick woods
and there were German snipers up
the trees and anywhere they could
post themselves.
"We came lu contact witli Lord
Arthur Hay and a company of men.
Ho asked what company 1 belonged
to. I replied, 'No. 1, sir!' 'Well,' ho
remarked, 'get off to your left.' No
sooner did I move nway than a bullet,
Skimming my arm, struck Lord Arthur
In tlio stomach. He foil like a log.

Came crawling to\vards.ine, and togotli-

his eyes and said, 'Get cover, boys;

Coaxed German Out
Things here are rather warm at the
present moment, iu fact have been
tor nearly a fortnight, writes Corporal W. Cray, of the R.F.A. We
average two or three hundred rounds
a day, and some days more than
that.
One day we fired over 900 rounds;
and the German infantry lost thousands. We let them have lt hot for
hours.
Some of (he Seaforlh Highlanders,
whose trenches are iu front of ours,
coaxed the Germans to make a
charge. They 'started an attack,
when suddenly the Jocks hopped out
of their trenches and began to retire.
The Germans at once began
charge, and when they were nearly
on the Jocks three machine guns on
either side, which were cunningly
concealed, enfiladed them. Then the
Seaforths had  their charge.
Not many Germans returned to
their trenches.

Protecting Implements From Rust
A correspondent or the Breeders'
Magazine gives this advice on this subject:
Housing fails because it does not
keep the noisture laden atmosphere
from contact with the surface of the
steel. There arc many cheap gummy
or oily substances that will protect a
bright plough or hoe or other farm
tool. 1 havo found heavy unrefined
oil effective and easily applied. Axle
grease is used so .(qnerally for waggons that many farmers apply that. It
ls more expensive and more difficult to
spread so as to cover the entire surface of the tool. Unrefined cottonseed
oil and the low grade catsor oil spread
readily and carry gum and oil enough
to dry slowly and cover well, and they
do not dry so hard as linseed oil,
whicli prevents the plough or hoe from
scouring readily.
A barrel of heavy lubricating oil on
tlie farm will save any further outlay
frr axle grease or machine oil. It is
good for killing vermin on animals
and for protecting tools from rust���

Send- wine to the head
Of the rustics who tread
Spellbound by your ankles so slender!
With lips in a curve,
As you posture and swerve,
You smile on each gallant entrancing.

You are playing your part
And  treading on hearts  with    your

It was In a suburban barber shop,
and a farmer with a week's growth
of stubby beard liad seated himself
in a chair to have his whiskers cropped.
"Guess you'll have a time gittin'
them off," he remarked, as tlie barber
began rubbing on the lather.
"Oh, I don't'know," said the barber
carelessly. "All beards look alike to
me."
"Wunst I went into a barber shop to
git shaved," resumed the farmer, "and
after the barber was done and I was
payin' him, he remarked, 'Say, old
man, if all beards was like yourn, I'd
quit the barber business.' I sez to
him, I sez, 'Well, you haven't got anything on me, old man. If all barbers
was like you, I'd let my bean1, grow."

Women as Soldiers
EPOCH  IN  MODERN WARFARE
Germans Try Steel Jacketj Against
British Rifles
For the first time in modern warfare the Germans made use near
Armentieres of armoured jackets for
infantry: heavy steel cuirasses
reaching from the shoulders nearly
down to the knee.
In these they march slowly forward till they reach the very edge of
a trench, "looking like blooming tortoises," said a Tommy AUins, "But
we have the bayonet ready for 'em
when they get to us," he went on,
"and we sha'n't have anything to
fear from 'shelly-bellies,' unless perhaps in a night attack."
Tills modern revival of the old
Roman armed foot soldier marks an
epoch in modern warfare.

weeks while the latter enjoyed a vacation at the seaside. One day a farmer came in���a big, muscular chap,

teeth come like the roots of oak trees.
As he sat in the chair he asked,
"Will it hurt?"
_ eeling in a rather jocular mood,
the fledging answered,
"Well, if it doesn't it shan't cost
you anything."
Then he fell to wor. The tooth
came even harder than he expected
so as the man got up from the chair
and pulled himself together���he had
not uttered a sound���the dentist saitl:
"Well, did it hurt?"
"Not a bit," answered the countryman, and strode out of the office,
leaving the dentist minus a fee.

Russian  Women   Are   Very   Eager to
Get Into Battle Line
The army authorities are having
their troubles discovering and sending
back to tlieir homes women who have
volunteered ln the ranks disguised as
men. There have been numerous instances of the kind since the war
started, especially among the masculine looking peasant women ot the
northern provinces.
One of these was Nadezhda Ormits-

Blood Can Give
Youth is the tim. to lay the foundation for health. Every boy and girl
should have plenty of pure, red blood
and strong nerves. With thin, impure
blood they start life with a handicap
too great to win success and happiness. Pure, red blood means healthful growth, strong nerves, a clear
brain and a good digestion. In a word,
pure blood is the foundation of health.
Tlie signs of thin, impure blood _re
many and unmistakable. The pale, irritable boy or girl, who has no appetite or ambition, is always tired out,
melancholy, short of breath, and who
does not grow strong, is the victim ��of
anaemia, or bloodlessncss���the greatest enemy of youth.
There is Just one thing to do for
these boys and girls���build up the
blood with Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for
Pale People. You can't afford to experiment with other remedies for
there must be no guesswork in the
treatment of anaemia. Through neglect or wrong treatment anaemia
gradually develops into the pernicious
form which is practically incurable.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills work directly
on the blood, giving lt just the elements which it lacks. In this way
these Pills build up every organ and
nerve in the body, thus developing
strong, ruggod boys and girls. Mi3s
Anna Loseke, Grand Forks, B.C., says:
"I think that before taking Dr. Williams' Pink Pills I was one of the
most miserable girls alive. I was
hardly ever free from awful headaches, was as pale as a ghost, and
could not go upstairs without stopping
to rest. N'ow since taking the Pills
the headaches have gone, my appe'lte
is good and J am oqual to almost any
exertion, and you may he sure I will
always recommend Dr. Williams' Pinlc
Pills."

VICTORIA NOTES
For some days it had been noised
abroad thai tb : Mi lattalion, Canadian
Rilles, was shortlj I leave Victoria for
��� iu unknown destination, a destination
which was given many names, liy the
way' ranging from Hong (Cong to Egypt
and from   Bermuda  to  Flauders,   but
rumor became fact when OU Sunday last
the citi/ens of Victoria assembled in their
thousands to bid farewell to one thousand officers and men on their departure
tor one ol the destinations, via Vancouver, The day was warm ami bright, ami
it was no hardship t>> wait in a position
of vantage for an hour or so until the
splendid strains of ilie baud nl tlu- 5th
Regiment playing '"Tippernry" as it led
the bo Idlers down Government Street,
betokened the approach ol the Overseas
reinforcement Thut popular tunc gave
way to the "Soldiers id the King" liy
the time the Causer.way was reached,uud
in a short time the khaki-clad heroes iu
full marching order, which included
waterproof sheet ant blankets, swung
past the Parliament Buildings on their
way to the wharf where the "Princess
Mary" lay already, bedecked with Bags
and bunting. The soldiers carried Hags
and pennons, and ou the latter oue
could read the names id the places from
which the bearers hailed, Victoria, Prince
Rupert, Keremess, etc, A large number
of the men wore the South African ribbon
and tbe general appearance boded ill (or
tbe Germans, when these, our Itritisli
Columbia boys, get to grips with the
modern Huns.
lt took sonic time to embark the troo .s
and the interval enabled many friends
and relatives to renew their adieux.
Touching scenes were witnessed as
fathers kissed their soldier sons, and
there were mnny of the spectators who
were not ashamed to own that they were
far from being dry-eyed. But DUTY
has claims, and when tlie challenge was
announced "Are we downhearted" the
unanimous shout went up "Noel "
This will i>e remembered nevertheless
when the Canadian troops meet the
Kaiser's forces.    That astute  potentate
was led to believe that tbe dominions,
colonies and dependencies of the British
Empire were far from loyal, and that
the response of Canada utter the Navy
episode at Ottawa, would be but faint,
So far iu Western Canada and British
Columbia there has been uo need to deplore any lack of recruits, nor will there
be any deficiency.
It. C. will see the struggle through lo
the eml, and the end will not be in a
patched up peace of a temporary nature.
Tlie pathetic scenes uu Sunday stimulated lhe onlookers lo this decision, that
come what tray, tin Prussian menace
must go. and no', i single stone be led
unturned to brill: about a decisive result.
The Liberal leader in Ontario, Mr. Ro_-
ell, finds it necessary ti> undertake a
[Campaign in the interest, id two things,
' namely, increased recruiting and increased production, and your readers may
well he proud that while it is necessary
here in it. C. to advocate the second
plank of Mr. Rowell's patriotic platform
it has not so far become necessary for
either Conservative or I.iberal leaders tu
tour the province iu an endeavor to gain
tlie recruits needed. All these thoughts
flashed through tin mind of your correspondent ou Sunday last, and his reverie
was brokeu as the waiting ranks fell into
place once more, rifles were shouldered
and the remainder of the battalion
marched down the gangway. The onlookers included several visitors from the
Coinox Valley, and of course there was
quite a respectable contingent from the
Valley in the ranks. The departure of
the forces was not announced beforehand
for reasons known to the authorities,
and thus far, the destination is unknown.
Tlie 30tb Battalion goes as quite a
separate unit, and is not included ill the
second contingent at all. It is said that
it i.s to reinforce the lirst contingent,
which is now in France, but oue fact is
certain, and it is that it will not shame
B .C. wherever it goes. May it return
with victory and honor, and many laurels!
