Gun Club
Good Friday   saw   the   opening
shoot of the Courteuay Gun  Club.
Several new members joined the old
faithful never inisseiii's of last year
in tearing up the scenery as well af
puncturing  the ozone,   Good for
first shoot records were   made,   as
all seemed eager to annex, and stir
tlieir sugar with that tiffany trophy.
Some excitement w.is caused when
.111 alderman discovered   that   the
damp weather   had   softened   the
shot, thereby only   "dusting"   his
sky rockets.    It's to be  hoped the
dry days to follow will remedy the
evil.   Some of the younger shoot-
ists were  distracted  by three  red
birds across the river in great peril
but a litile   Barker   saved   them,
All members were very enthusiastic
and optimistic at a  justly  popular
sport being so well attended.   _ fter
the shoot, the members met in Dr.
Morrison's   rooms   and   discussed
plans for the erection   of   a   Club
House.    Mr. Sutton was asked to
estimate the probable cost of a suitable one.    A resolution was pissed
to be forwarded to the   Provincial
Game Warden, re certain suggested
changes in the Game  Law.    A re-
solutioa has already  been  sent   to
Mr. Williams asking permission ty

they nre so destructive to game tisli.

"(loil bless you, sir, 1 will do my utmost."
The woman went away; Osborne
turned now to the concierge.
"Would it be possible l'or nu to see
the manager?" lie asked.
".Mais, oul, monsieur, certaineraent.'
"Say that my business is very urgent, and that I will not keep him
long. But first I. have a strange request to make. Is there any way out
of this hotel except by the main en-
trance?"
"Mais, non, monsieur."
"Then 1 am safe if I stay here. No

"That is so, monsieur."
"Then I wish to remain here, nnd 1

him tlie message from Osborne, hut
finally decided to see him. At first he
looked haughty and annoyed, but one
or two words that fell Irom Osborne's
lips caused him to change his mind.
"I wish to ask you a question, monsieur," said Osborne. "Have you or
have you not noliced wil bin the last
Un days, thai, any of your visitors at
the hotel or any resident here has
lost anything of value?"
Monsieur Adolphe stared at Osborne.
��� "But lhai is remarkable," he said.
"Fritz, come here." He spoke to the
concierge. "For the last, few days,"
he said, glancing at Fritz as he spoke,
"there have been constant complaints
in the hotel aboul articles of value being missing, so much so that I have
now asked my ladies to allow me lo
take charge both of their j_vels and
money. There does not seem to be a

not what we should do but. for that
kind lady, Madame Villiers. She has
helped us to recover several small
properties belonging Io the ladies and
has herself been most kind and good-
natured; for, whoever the unknown
thief is, he seems to hnve served her
worse tbnn anyone else, taking rings,
bracelets and a diamond tiara."
Osborne's face was deadly white,
"Can you throw light on Ihis mystery, monsieur?" said the manager.
"I think I can���I believe I enn. But
have you taken no slops? Have you

"I must do so today, monsieur: but

"Monsieur Adolphe," said Osborne,
"will you now leave it to me? 1 hold
a clue which you do not possess. I
must ask you to send immediately for

I am a friend of ifcr'little yoirig lady

Will you permit mo to go lo her room
now, and will you do what 1 ask about
the other matter, and quickly?"
Monsieur Adolphe assured him that
he would. Osborne now followed the
maid up the main entrance. In a few
moments they stood outside the door
of the sitting room; within was the
sound of voices in high dispute. Osborne turned to the woman.
"Leave me now," he said; "and
When I rang, send up the gendarmerie."

at him iu astonishment.

The wretched woman screamed and
fell. The next instant there wns wild
bustle and confusion; the shots were
heard downstairs. The manager and

by the two members- of the gendarmerie.
Osborne pointed lo Ferris, who
struggled hard to escape, but handcuffs
number eight were quickly slipped on,
the revolver taken from him just in
time and he was conveyed from the
room.
A girl, white as death, bad rushed
in from the adjoining room. S'.ie saw

then she had no room in her heart
even for Osborne. She bent over the
dying woman; she put a pillow under

Barbara took the icy cold hand;
suddenly she did notice Osborne.
"Get a doctor, oh! get, a doctor!"
she said in a voice of agony. "Whatever she is, she is my mother."

woman spat up blood, and at intervals
spoke feeble words.

"Vou are mine now, mine forever,

She nestled into his arms; she allowed him to kiss her soft cheek, but

THE END.
sloe
ebb. In Western Canada, especially
there has been a very severe decreasi
in breeding slock. Canada has he
come ii large Importer of beef, million and hog products, although con-
' ditions in the Dominion should make
instead for the development of n large
export business.
During the llrst ten months of lust
year Canada Imported II2,2"X sheep
and '1,015,152 pounds of million and
lamb. The imports of hog products
for (he same period amounted to r>7,-
576 pounds of fresh, chilled and frozen
pork and 8,340,210 pounds of pork
barreled in brine. During the same
ten months there were imported 1,-
643,728 pounds of fresh, chilled and
frozen beef, and 996,837 pounds of
beef sailed in barrels.
Ou the other hand, exports of some
of these commodities are showing
large increases. The trade in bains
and bacon, whicli is now being developed wilb Great Briiain, and to a
less extent with the eastern United
Stales, promises to become of steadily increasing importance. Packers
now state thut with a price of seven
cent hogs to the farmers Ihey can
successfully compete with Denman!
in the British market. Our export of
hams and bacon to Great Britain iind
lo the eastern United Slates during
the first ten months of 1914 amounted to 19,526,384 pounds, and is now
increasing rapidly month by month.
The chief danger seen by the department of agriculture is in the depleting of the breeding supplies, and au
educational campaign to induce more
widespread and vigorous efforts towards slock raising in _Tl 1 the provinces is now being undertaken.

Radium as a Fertilizer
Has Not Yet, However, Been Used
Extensively  For This  Purpose
If you happen to have any radium
about the farm it may Lo well to remember that a British scientist, ,1,
Thome Baker, has found that it may
be used to increase the yield of
crops.
Anyhow he has found that when a
litlle over a grain of radium is put
in a ton of soil, wheat sown in it
will sprout a week sooner and be six
inches high.when the check plot is
only four inches high.
Pretty soon the rolltop desk farmers will be telling us that radium is
a fertilizer; but, of course, it is only
a stimulant which enables the crop
to take more out of the ground without putting anything in.
In view of the fact thr.t there are
only 12 grains of radium in existence
��� commercially speaking���the matter isn't very important to the farmer.
And yet it must be remembered
that there are considerable amounts
of mineral matter which carry very
small quantities of radium, and oue
of these days agents may ho about
the country trying-to sell it tc us for
our crops.
It might be well to remember that
scarcely any of the immense claims
set up regarding the use of radium
have as yet  received justification,

feat of making a watch in a
has  been  accomplished   by  a
making firm at Ohaux de
Ponds, Switzerland. This wonderful
watch, the only one of its kind In
the world, was finished a few days
ago. A pearl which weighs forty-
five grains and has a diameter of
about half an inch, contains all the
works. 11 took an employe of the
firm fifteen months to hollow out the
pearl and fix the wheels. The watch,
which is guaranteed to keep good
time and may be worn as a ring on
tho finger, is for sale for $6,000.
The growth of the co-operative
movement in Saskatchewan is shown
by the increase in creameries in that
province. There were only four of
these in 1907 with a patronage of 213
and an output of 66,246 lbs. of butter,
while In 1914 theri were thirteen
creameries with a paronage of 3,625

Can't Let Germany Win
A groat New York newspaper has
bluntly declared that the civilized
world will not allow Germany to prevail. We have every reason for confidence that the forces arrayed against
her will accomplish her undoing, if
it were to prove that our strength,
were insufficient, the olher free nations must join the struggle. Every
mouth that the war lasts the openly
expressed sympathy witli Germany's
enemies grows louder and more insistent, and every victory that Germany
can win threatens her with new foes
to conquer.���London Express.

the number of men who under our arrangements have flocked to enlist under the old Hag. There has been nothing like it. No army of this dimension has ever before been raised by
voluntary enlistment, and it is my
opinion that in no country in the
world could such an army bave been
raised by such means except in this
country of ours. We all know that
" e question of national service has
always been a dabatable one, and to
have raised it now would not have

best arrangement, h that which works
most quickly. Just as we have got

Big Public Works to Proceed
The war is making no difference
with government expenditures on the
big public undertakings. Last year
ordinary or consolidated outlays were
$111,000,000 and this year, iu tbe corresponding nine months, $14,000,000.
Railway outlays 1.-st year were $10-
000,000, and this year $15,000,000, but
railway subsidy payments have declined by $12,000,000.
In regard to smaller public works
there is a tendency to economize,
but all the big ones are going ahead,
money being putt into circulation,
and employment being furnished to
thousands.

Increase in Traffic Accidents

Aii alarming Increase in lho number nl' traffic accidents in Condon
streeis is shown iu the report of the
board of tnule. The tetal number of
aceideuls recorded is ...SOU against
22,'2hit l'or the previous year, ami lhe
report moreover siaies that "tin- proportion of fatal accidents Is Increasing
rapidly, owing lo the multiplication
of motor vehicles." Automobiles are
twice as likely to cause accidents as
horse vehicles, and the proportion nf
fatal accidents is three or (our limes
greater. The theory that the motorlsl
has such control over his machine that
he ean avoid accldcnl Is dispelled by
experience. The In si nope of improvement lies with the pedestrian himself;
he must develop u new traffic sense."

An Ancient Tablet
Laws of 2500 B.C. Are Found on Tablet Just Unearthed
A Babylonian tablet, believed to
have been buried for more than four
thousand years and containing the
earliest, law code known, has recently
been unearthed and is in possession
of Yale University. Part nf it has
been cleaned aud deciphered.
Tlie laws are written iu Sumerian,
the language of Southern Babylonian
prior to its conquest by the Semites
or Accadlans in the time of Hammurabi.
The laws that have been translated
refer to legislation concerning injury
lo women; the repudiation of children who have perhaps been adopted;
elopement; the hire of boats and cattle, and the provision for the killing
of a hired ox by a lion.
These laws are believed to have
been written about 2500 B.C.

to her little ones she will use no other
medicine. Concerning them Mrs. Jos.

Look to Canada for Wheat
Pastoral Industry Gaining Favor in

Interviewed concerning a cable
from Wellington to the effect that
the New Zealand government had arranged for the purchase of 1,000,000
bushels of Canadian wheat for delivery next July, Hon. Mr. Mackenzie,
New Zealand high commisisoiiei- iu
London, said that lie had been buying
wheat, since the war started, hut this
was the largest order. For some
years, he said New Zealand's wheat
output had been diminishing in favor
of pastoral Industry, and ii was likely the commonwealth would in future
have to look more and more to Canada for her wheat supply. The high
commissioner acknowledged New
Zealand's debt, to Canada for her present efficiency in dairy production.
Having recently returned from
Egypt where, with Sir George Held,
llie Australian and New Zealand expeditionary forces were visited, the
Hon. Mr. Mackenzie said that the men

Sense About Food

How often does the citizen���farmer
or townsman���as he goes to the bank

imagine a town without stores and
other places of business? Can he
imagine the existence.-of stores -without patronage? Let him for a nionienl

Baby Eczema
Becomes Chronic
Causing Great Suffering and Anxiety
���Prompt Relief . nd Cure by Dr.
Chase's Ointment
Tliis is one reason why every
mother should know about Dr. Chase's
Ointment, since it is an unfailing cure
for all itching- skin diseases.
Mrs. F. Clarke, Belmont, Man.,
writes: "My baby had eczema on
her ear. The sore was very bad and
nothing seemed to do lier much good.
Hearing of the remarkable cures Dr
Chase's Ointment was making, we
sent for some, and after the third ap-
piication the sore began to heal. I
am glad to say that it is quite well
now, and we give the credit to Dr.
Chase's Ointment. We cannot recommend this preparation too highly."
Here is another lei ter, which tells
of the cure of a five weeks old baby:
Mrs. Wallace Mingon, River John
Road, Colchester County, N.S.. writes:
"My little girl took eczema when she
was five weeks old. Though we doctored her until she was nearly a year
old, she got. no better. I was advised
to use Dr. Chase's Ointment, and this
treatment completely cured  her."
Machinery That Mothers Farm Credit
Says  the  June  bulletin  issued  by
the   Muskogee   (Oklahoma)   National
bank:
"Every farmer should pay attention
to lho care of machinery and tools.
It not only Is careless and reckless to
permit various kinds of Implements to
be scattered around the farm and exposed to all kinds of weather, but the
actual money loss is worth while.
Much machinery becomes useless on
account of rust, decay and neglect.
Few things do inon to establish
credit for the farmer than attention
and care given lo Implements and
vehicles. Everything a farmer has
to work with should be kepi in a
clean, dry place ready for use on demand. This suggestion is especially
valuable now before harvest and the
wise farmer will have his mower
and binder iu lirst class condition so
that no time is lost when suddeuly
needed."

More Poultry Needed
Cauada is short fifteen hundred
thousand hens, averaging one hundred eggs per year. Canada in
1914 imported two hundred thousand dollars , worth more poultry
thnu she exported, and imported
eggs lo the enormous amount in
value of $2,500,000 in excess of her
shipments abroad. These are the
somewhat surprising, if not alarming, statements made by the
Poultry Division of the Dominion
Deparment of Agriculture, from
which also emanates the important
announcement that Britain took
from Belgium, France, Russia,
Germany and Austria-Hungary in
the available months of 1914, three
million dollars worth of poultry,
aud 136,000.000 dozen, or sixteen
hundred and thirty-two million
eggs���sufficient to give two million
two hundred and thirty-five thousand six hundred and sixteen people
two eggs apiece for eyery day in
the year. Such facts must surely
convey a world of meaning to
poultry breeders in Canada. These
facts are further emphasized by the
statement that the average egg
yield per hen in this country is but
80 eggs per year, which we are
further assured by experts could,
by careful selection, feeding and
housiug be increased to 180 eggs
h r hen per year. As the head of
the division at Ottawa remarks, "It
would be a profitable thing to strive
for." Pamphlets addressing the
Publications Branch, Department of
Agriculture. Ottawa, are No, I,

Sir:���It is proposed, in connection
with local efforts to help the men at the
front, to organize a "Linen Day" and I
have been asked to write you the following letter in connection therewith.
When we try to realize the enormous
numbers of such cases due to the fighting it soon becomes apparent tint an
exceedingly large amount of linen etc.,
mutt be needed for bedding, pillows and
bandages etc. In the County of Surrey
alone preparation has been made for
40,000 cases, and all the great London
hospitals are working at full pressure!
While we live here in peace and
security we must bear in mud those who
are suffering for us at the front. The
demand for linen is almost exceeding
the supply, and private individuals are
urged to give linen, cotton, damask,
toweling, mnslin, etc.
The most useful gifts are sheets (especially Hospital sheets,) Pillow cases
are also much needed-both us;l and
unused, bleached or nnbleachei.
All old and new cotton w ;i be welcomed, and will be sterilized at the base
hospitals.   Towels of all kinds are badly
needed.
|    Hundreds of little pillows size 10i_ x 10
I in.  are  asked  for,   made of the   soft
I downy   material  used  in    filling  the
modern mattress.  These are for putting
��� over wounds and could be made locally,
out of old pillows.
!    The local organization of the Patriotic
service committee appeals to the residents
of the Comox Valley for all such goods,
and it is proposed to take up a house to
house collection on the 15th, 16th, and
I7th,  of this month.    Donations may
| however be left at the office of the Committee in   Courtenay   (Hicks-Beach   &
Field) and will be duly acknowledged.
I am yours faithfully
E. P. Laycock.

Pigs with Rheumatism
Hogs Kept in Cold, Damp Pens Are
Apt to be Affected
M.B.R., of Elkhart county, Indiana,
says that he hns a litter ot full blooded Poland China pigs, seven weeks old
that have rheumatism, Their joints
are swollen and they nre lame, lie
wants to know the cause and the cure.
This form of rheumatism in pigs
can usually be taken us au Indication
that care and feeding have not been
of the right kind. I'lgs kept in cold,
damp pens or subjected to exposure
are apt to he affected in this way.
Overfeeding is another common cause,
Of course, there may be other causes,
for instance at the beginning of an
outbreak of cholera the -symptoms of
rheumatism are frequently present.
The first thing we would advise
would be to put the pigs iu dry, comfortable quarters, if ihey are not already there. Keep them away from
old straw stacks or manure heaps.
Bed them well with clean, dry straw
in a house that is well ventilated but
free from drafts. In the way of med.
clnal treatment we quote from Dr,
Craig: "Salicylate of soda i-i the most
useful drug io give in this disease. The
dose is twenty or thirty grains in the
feed or as a drench three times a
day. Quinine and hitter tonics can
also ho given, mistering ointments
and liniments should he applied to the
Inflamed articulations,"���The Farmer's

PILLS
Mr.  Robert Taylor, Sr., After Suffering For Two Years, Tells of the
u        Benefits    He   Got From
Dodd's Kidney Pill.
Watford, Ont���(Special)���Mr. Itobt.
Taylor, Sr., a very estimable man living here, is telling his friends that the
pain in liis puck, from which he suffered for some time, has disappeared,
and that ho gives all  the credit to
Delhi's Kidney Pills.
"My trouble started with a eold,"
.Air. Taylor slates, "and though I
was treated by tt doctor 1 got no
permanent relief. I had cramps in
my muscles and stiffness in my joints,
my sleep was broken and unrefresh-
lng and I perspired freely with the
least exertion. 1 had attacks of rheumatism and sciatica, and though I
tried many medicines I found no relief till I tried Dodd's Kidney Pills.
1 must, say they were a great benefit
to me."

DISFIGURING ECZEMA

Blood Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
Actually Make
You cannot cure eczema or remove
disfiguring pimples by the use of ointments, washes or salves applied outwardly. The trouble is due to impure
blood and can only be cured through
the blood. That is the reason why Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills cure eczema and
otber forms "of skin diseases. They
act directly on the blood���make it
rich, red and pure, and thus enable
the system to expel the impurities
that have broken out through the skin,

at Messinec when the London 'uotiish
made their famous charge, and in
spile of fearful shell and machine guu
ire he repeatedly went out, dressed
the wounds of ihe London Scottish,
and carried them out of action. Not
content with this, during a night attack which followed lie walked up to
the enemy's trenches and shot six
Germans. A very gallant gentleman

it necessary."
The manual severely prohibits looting, and says that movable private
property is to be treated as inviolable.
Among the questions and answers
in tlie book are:
"Q.���Should women and children
and tho old and feeble be allowed to
depart before a bombardment begins?"
"A.���On the contrary, their presence Is greatly to bo desired. It makes
the bombardment all the more effective."
Prof. J. il. .Morgan has translatedl

Tbo Daily Chronicle, which publishes a review ot Prof. Morgan's

To Prevent the
Export of Arms
Petition is Being Widely Circulated In
the United States
A protest strongly worded against
tbe United States continuing to permit the exportation of munition of war
to tho allies : Europe is being circulated by Interested persons in the republic, and according to report is receiving federal support. The protest,
contains arguments against allowing
exportation on the ground that munitions, besides going to Europe, are going to Japan. "We are fortifying not
only Europe: ns against each other;
we are fortifying others against ourselves," it says.
_. A copy of this paper, which aims
to bring pressure to bear oii the
United States government has been
received by Frof. Anderson, of Toronto university.   It says:
"We, the citizens of the United
States of America, appeal la the name
of Justice and hunuuilly, in the name
of neutrality and future peace, to the
people, to the law makers and the
government of our country to prevent
the export from our shores of one
single weapon, or one pound of powder lo deal death in Europe.
"The president of Ihe United Slates
has prevented the loan of money to
���Trance and thereby our country has
set its own precedent of what Is just
aud right. This precedent binds us in
legal opinion as well as in lhe estimate of the world, to pursue a course
of umlubitable neutrality."
The protest details that great orders have been accepted and are being executed In the United Slates l'or
the continuance of war, and asks:
"Where tire our peace societies?
Where are our women's organizations? Where are our churches? Are
we, for the sake of present business
profit���willing to draw upon ourselves
an enduring heritage of hatred? Generations will not suffice to wipe away
tbe stain we bring upon ourselves.
Cuns, ammunition, cartridges, dynamite, bombs, are going from our manufacturers not only to England,
France and Hussia, but also to the
Japanese. We are fortifying not only
Europeans against each other; we are
fortifying others against oursefces. In
case of any future struggle forced upon our own land, picture the destruction brought upon us did any neutral
of Europe take the position of neutrality we assume today.
"We protest not only in the interest
of America, but above all in the name
of humanity, against a prolongation
by our country of this hideous warfare. Our own land will be stained
with the blood of our European
brothers."
Fire from Calais to Dover
Weapon Said to Have a Range of 25 to
28 Miles
A German military newspaper announces tbat a new naval gui. of 16-
inch calibre, with a range of '.wenty-
miles, bas ; een created.
Remarkable figures regarding a new
German naval gun are given by a German artillery expert, writing in the
Artilleristische Monats Hefts.
ln discussing an assertion by the
London Times that the German navy
possesses a gun which carries .three
miles further than the best English
weapon, the writer admits that the
Krupps are manufacturing a gun
whose projectile weighs 120 kilograms
(about a ton) and which develops a
muzzle telocity of 940 metres (about
3,080 feet) a second.
Tbe experts reckon from these figures tbat the gun has 58 per cent.
more muzzle force than the British
navvy's best weapon, and has a range
of about 12 kilometres labout 26
miles), while the Channel at Dover is
only 33 kilometres (about 20.5 miles)
wide, lie says It will permit the Germans eventually to command the
English coust from Calais for a distance of nine kilometres (about 5.5
miles inland) with the new gun.

Problem of Germany
Will Soon be How to Find Men for
Army, in Vfrw of Losses
The Army Bulletin, in commenting
upon the German losses in the war,
declares that a greater part of the
original regiments must hava been reorganized. The Bulletin asserts that
from August 2 until the beginning of
December the German army lost approximately 2,000,000 men, and since
that time there have been the battles
in Poland. Admitting that 500,000
wounded would be able to return to
the firing line, the Bulletin says that
the definite 'oss, therefore, may be
estimated at nearly 1,600,000 men.
Without doubt, says the Bulletin,
Germany has an enormous number ot
men in reserve, but these reserve are
already being drawn upon and are not
inexhaustible, even incorporating the
classes of the youngest men, from 17
to 20 years of age, and those between
20 and -10 : nars of age whose cervices
were dispensed with in times of
pence. Germany's appeals, it is added, will be unable tq furnish actually
over 2,000,000. The more Germany
forms new units, the more will she
diminish the ge.ieral value of ber
army, and hasten the momjiit when
there will be an end to her resources. .
GERMANS TO SACRIFICE METALS
���Would    Have    Heirlooms and  Other
Articles Given to State to Keep
Up Needed Supply
The London Daily Chronicle says:
"The marked success which attended
'Imperial Wool Week,' in Germany,
has Induced a number of leading journals, including the Hamburger Nach-
richten, to advocate r.n 'Imperial Metal Week,' in which tbe German nation
will give one lnorisvproof of patriotism
_y sacrificing superfluous copper, silver and gold l'or the uses of the army
and the state.
"The greater stress would appear
to be laid on copper. The possessors
of valuable bronze r.nd copper articles
of artistic beauty, or articles regarded
as heirlooms, are told that it would
be foolish to part with those things
as long as the melting pot can be
filled with more prosaic and common
things.
"If every household in the empire
contributed only one pound of copper
there would be available 5,000 tons.
Silver is also greatly needed. Tliere
are tons of inartistic table silver of
modern and vulgar design which
might well go into the melting pot or
the mint.
"With regard-to gold, the Hamburger paper warmly supports the suggestion that wedding rings be exchanged
by their wearers for rings made of
iron. The idea is put forward (hat,
as iron rings must not prove "attractive to some ladies, diamonds and
other precious stones might be taken
from gold rings and set in iron ones.
THE BELGIAN BOYS
LAUGH III SHELLS
Pick Up Pieces of Hot Metal and Offer Them as  Souvenirs
The United Press staff correspondent writes: At Rheims, while lunching, I sent the 12 years old son of
the hotel proprietress across the
street to buy some postcard pictures
of tlie badly damaged town. While he
was making '.he selection, a German
shell fell and exploded almost in the
middle of the street, making an in-
.fernal racket. A few minutes later
the lad returned with tho postcards.
Was be out of breath and all eagerness to tell the strange foreigner
about the shell which bad fall; n near
bim?   Not at all.
"I'm sorry, sir," be said, qui-e as he
would have done had be merely waited for a street car to pass instead of
tho smoke of a shell to clear up, "they
are out of cathedral cards. Perhaps 1
can find you some down Lhe slreet,
there is another place down there."
I thought of the. shells and told the
boy to never mind. Think of it! A
boy so used to shells fallmg in his
street that they have ceased ,o be a
subject, for comment.
Later on, on that same day, a small
boy In the streets of Rl.eims brought
me a piece of sh.l', still hot, which
had fallen near him. Being of the
gamin type, with wits sharpened beyond his years, he i.sked me it' 1 would
care to buy 1 is niece of hot shell as a
souvenir.
Then there was another bo; This
youngster paraded past the cathedral

carried between his two ha ids a pan

squares from the boy with the milk.
He stopped. Looked around as if to
see if he was being Watched, Then he
slowly raised tbe pan to his lips and
took a little drink. Just as slowly, he
lowered it and began his careful
march homeward, past ths slatue of
Jeanne D'Arc and tb ��� House of God
and on down in the direction of the
canal.

At the moment the boy was having
further refreshments from his pan.
"You're going to lose that milk if
you don't mind," I said to tlie lad from
my position in a doorway. He had
not seen me before and h,_ looked up
sheepishly realizing he had been

grinned a perfectly, honest wholesome
grin and replied with a good little
devil look out of the corner of his

The last I saw ol him he was taking
gingerly steps homeward with a pan

unafraid.
L
Four Are With   Indian  Expeditionary
Force   In   France,  and   One   in
Egypt
No less than five ruling Indian
I princes are at the prese.' time on ac-
I live service with the British army,
all of whom belong to the Rajput:
race, famous as tho great fighting,
land owning and ruling caste of India, and from which a large proportion of the recruits for the Indian
army of today are drawn. Four of
these, the Maharajas of Bikaner, Kis-
hanagurb, Jodbpur and Sir Pertab
Singh, are with the Indian expeditionary forces in France, the fifth, tha
adopted son and successor of Sir Pec-
tab Singh as ruler of Idar, is serving
in Egypt. Col. Sir oanga Singh, Baiv
adur of Blkaner, has served ousside
his own country in command of his
renowned camel corps, on many previous occasions, and was recently
gratified to receive from Genaial Sir J.
G. Maxwell a message appreciative of
ihe signal service the camel corps has
already rendered in Egypt.
In a recent interview given in London during Christmas leave, to a
Times' representative, the Maharaja,
who is au extra A.D.C. to Sir John
French, expressed on behalf of the
ruling princes of India their keen
sense of ihe duty which lies upon
them to assist their king-emperor with
every means at tlieir disposal, and
their recognition of tlie absolute necessity of British participation in the
war. Tbe loyalty of the Indian people, increased by the wise and sympathetic policy of Lord Hardlnge, the
viceroy, was such that he had no
doubt that a large proportion of the
army could safely be withdrawn from
India. He paid a high tribute to tbe
services of Aga Khan iu maintaining
the loyalty of the Indian Moslems In
face of what he described as "Turkey's suicidal action."
Referring to his experiences in
China M years ago during the Boxer
outbreak, the Maharaja said that he
was I hen pained and astonished by
the ruthless methods of the Germans;
during the time he had been in
France be ban seen heart-rending
evidence of equally terrible cruelty
on their part, authenticated accounts
of whicli had stimulated the desire of
the Indian peoples for the victory of
the Allies. The Maharaja also gave
high praise to the courage and cheerfulness of the British and Indian
troops amid the discomforts of the
trenches, often knee de?.p in water.
These were especially trying to solJ-
iers accustomed to operations In
mountainous regions, and he was
proud of the hearty admiration which
bad been expressed on all sides for
the intrepidi'.y und resourcefulness of
his fellow countrymen under such
adverse conditions.
Dublin Castle has been opened as
a completely equipped hospital, and
for the duration of the war It has
been placed at tbe disposal of the Red
Cross by the generosity of Lord
Aberdeen. "Now, when there ls only

time for Lord Aberdeen to have dono
the wisest thing which any viceroy
has ever done with Dublin Castle, by

Leave the babies alone and let them
grow.
The death rate in the first three
years of child life is the greatest,
and after that every added year increases its safety.
The most frequent cause of infant
mortality is improper feeding, and
impure milk; the stomach of the
new born baby is very small: and a
very delicate affair, but it is through
this small and delicate organ all
growth comes, and the food which
Nature has prepared for the babe's
stomach is the mother's milk.
The wise mother will insist on
nursing her child not only for the
child's sake, but also for her own.
The mother-fed child is the one that
escapes a hundred dangers to which
the bottle fed babe is exposed:
follow Nature and it is well for
mother and child. Nature loves
her own, and it is when we stray
from her that infant mortality
begins.
The mother must be well fed if
she would feed her child; make no
mistake about this, Today we
have so many food fads, and eat so
mar y things that have really no
food value, that often the mother's
milk is deficient in certain essential
elements necessary for the child's
growth.
Think of all the elements required
bone, muscle, energy nerve, (we
can't live today without nerve) the
heart, lungs, in fact all the thoarcic
viscera, all the abdominal viscera,
the skin, the brain���all must lie
fed and kept growing; aud the
mother must through the food she
takes provide for herself and her
child.
It is not difficult to understand
that a most generous diet is re-
required to meet these demands.
Every foodstuff should be a part of
the mother's daily rations from the
time of conception until the child
is weaned.
There is no better resting place
for a child than in a roomy carriage
on the verandah, sheltered from the
winds, or in the south room of the
house, -veil ventilated, warm in the
winter time.
