There was smooth pasture in llie
valley, broken by dark squares of
turnip fields nii'l pule stubblcj but
here and there the heath appeared
HKiiiu nnd wjitl coltou showed faintly white above, the black peat-soil.
By and by a cross, standing by itself oil tne lonely hillside caught
Foster's eye, and he asked It is companion about it.
"The Count's Cms-, sir; a courtesy
title Ihey hold iii_ the next dale. He
was killed in a raid on a tower down
the water, before lhc Fcatlicrstones
"Bul did tlicy bury him up there?"
"No, sir; they were all buried at
night by the water of Langrigg, but
when tltey were carrying him home
in the mist by the liil! road the
Scots from lhe tower overtook theni.
The Count's men were wounded and
their horses foundered, hut the Scots
let them go when they found that
lie was di ad. About 1300, sir. Somebody jiui the cross to commemorate
"Tlicy seem lo have been a chivalrous lot," Foster remarked. "1 wonder if that kind of tiling would happen nowadays?"
"I'm afraid one couldn't expect il,
sir," lhe old lellow answered and
Foster smiled.
The cross faded Into the hillside;
it got dark and the valley narrowed.
Trees grew in sheltered spots; the
faint, delicate tracery of birch blanches breaking the solid, black ranks
of tlie firs. The road wound along
tbe river, which roared, half seen, in
tbe gloom. Now and then they ran
llirougli water, anil presently the
glare  of      llie      headlamps      bored
tlirougli breast-high mist. There
was a smell of wet foil am! rotting
leaves. Jt was very different from
the tangled pine bush of Ontario and
tlie stark bareness of the plains, but
il was somehow familiar and Foster
fell thai he was at home,

The hall was large ami a fire burned on a deep hearth. There were
oil lamps on tall pillars, ami In the
background a broad .staircase ran up
to a gallery in the gloom. Foster,
however, had uot much time to look
about, for as soon as lie had given
up his hat and coat bis host led llilll
towards the lire and two ladies came
up. He knew one was his partner's
mother and the other his sisler, but
although ihey wen- like Lawrence he
remarked a difference that was puzzling until be understood its origin.
Mrs. Featherstone had an unmistakable stamp of dignity, hui her face
was gentle and her look very friendly; her daughter was tall and Foster thought remarkably graceful,
with an air of pride ar.d reserve, although this vanished when she gave
liim    a     frank       welcoming       sini'e.
Featherstone. who wns older than
Ills wife, had shorl, grey hair, ami
lined, brown face, bul looked strong
and carried himself well.
Foster, who liked ihem al once,
wondered rather anxiously whether
he had pleased or disappointed theni.
lint imagined that thej would reserve their opinion. Tlicy were, of
course, nol the people to show what
tlicy thought, ami If be had felt any
embarrassment,    tltey    would   have
known bow to pill liim at his case.
Still Iiis type was, no doubt, new to
them and his views might jar. Hc
did not remember what they said,
bul they somehow made him feel he
was not a stranger but a friend who
had a claim, and when lie went to
his room he knew he would . njoy
his slay with Fcatlicrstonc's people.
\ 1.
His Comrade's Story
Foster spent the most part of the
next (lay in the open air with his
host. Featherstone hati a quiet, genial manner and seemed lo have read
much, though he held the narrow-
views that sometimes mark the uii-
travelled Englishman. He appeared
lo bo scrupulously just and showed
sound judgment about matters he
understood, but he had strong prejudices and Foster did not think him
clever. Wilh bis rather sensitive
pride and fastidiousness lie was certainly not thc man to make his marl-
in Canada, and Foster began to understand certain traits that bad puzzled hii it in bis son.    Lawrence,   al
though be had keener Intelligence,
was not unite so line a type as his
father, ami in consequence stood
rough wear belter. Hut Inr too, ill
spile of bis physical courage, now
nnd then showed a supine carelessness and iried to avoid, instead of
boldly grappling with, things that I
Tlicy set oul lo go .-.hooting,    but I
Featherstone stopped to talk to cv- ���
erybody lhcy met, and showed keen
inter, si in  sueh  mailers  as  the  lur-1
nip crop niul the price of sheep,    ll j
was clear that he  wns liked ami  re- .
spected,   Sometimes he turned aside
to examine    tottering     gales     and
blocked ditches, and commented    to
Foster upon  the economies of farm- '
ing  and   tho  burden  of   taxes.      1'lie
latter soon gathered that iher.-   was
not much profit to be derived   from
a small moorland estate and his host
was  (ar  from  rich,     ll   looked  as  il
bad  cost him, and  perhaps  his  family, some self-denial to     send    the
money that hnd once or twice enabled  Lawrence, and Foster with him,
to weather a crisis.
At noon tlicy wen- given a better
lunch than Foster had often been
satisfied with al a lonely farm, where
Featherstone spoke of him as his
son's partner, and seemed to take an
ingenious pride ill making it known
that Lawrence was prospering. This
gave Foster a hint that he acted on
later. They, however, shot a brace
of partridges iu a turnip field, a
widgeon lhat rose from a reedy lam
ami a woodcock that sprang out of
a holly thicket in a bog. It was a
day of gleams of sunlight, passing
showers, and mist that roilcti about
the hills and swept away, leaving
the long slopes in transcicnl brightness, checkered with (lie green of
mosses and Ihe red of withered fern.
The sky cleared ns they turned
homewards, and when they reached
the Garth an angry crimson glow
spread across tlie west.

Seal Meat Latest Delicacy
Seal meal is lhe latest table delicacy being considered by lhc Dominion food board as a substitute for the ordinary bovine species.
Last week officers of the food
board interview Dr. Grcnfell, of
the Labrador Mission, with regard to
this proposal. Dr. Grcnfell reported
thai il would be quite easy to secure
twenty million pounds of seal meal
after skinning die animals and extracting llie surplus fat. It could bc
frozen and stored at St. Johns and
Halifax. The meat is said to he palatable and to possess high nutritive
value, and the matter will be gone

Ihc witness. "What did he say?"
Counsel for the other side objected
that evidence as to a conversation
���was not admissablc, and half an
hour's argument ensued. Then the
magistrate retired to consider the
point, announcing on his return some
lime later that he deemed the question a proper one. "Well, what did

examining solicitor. "Hc didn't say

It was nol lhc prospect of extra

months to exhaust. Gen, Pershing's
recommendation that Ibis extra pay
be cut off because "Hying duly is no
more hazardous than duly with othei- combat troops, and involves nothing like lhe hardships endured by
the troops in lhc trenches," offends
the Aero Club of America. It will
not offend ihese volunteers, Their
disappointment will be in hearing
that there is no extra risk. Yet
Pershing's statement has been borne
out by llritish reports. Safer machines are being built, safer methods
of instruction developed. 'I'he death
of one of the thousands of practising
aviators gets far more notice than
even the deaths from accidental gunshot wounds that Pershing reports.

Italy's Spirit
All Factions Have Been Drawn Together by the Presence of the
Invaders on Italian Soil
William Marcoui, inventor of the
wireless telegraphy, testifies to Ibe
belter spirit in Italy loday. Before
the Austro-Gcrmail invasion there
was less community of feeling there
than llicrc is now; all factions ha.-e
been drawn together by Ihc presence
of llic invaders on Italian soil.
This is a result that thc German
government did not foresee. It
thought it could weaken the morale
of Italy as it bad weakened lhat of
liussia. It argued to itself that
when the Italian people, saw the enemy pouring tlirougli the border passes they would bc ready to negotiate peace, But the opposite has
proved true. German psychology
lias failed again. The Italians arc
stronger today than they were when
their reverses began last October.���

Jam for Britain's Army
The fondness of thc Brilish "Tommy," as well as of Britishers generally, for sweet fruit jnms and marmalades has necessitated the inclusion
of these sweets iu Ihc rations used
by soldiers nnd sailors. Thc importance of this item of wnr supplies
is shown by lhe_ fact, jusl announced, that the minister of customs of
Australia, through the commonwealth government, has placed a
contract with lhc British government for 50,000,000 pounds of Aus-
trallftn jam, involving the expenditure of upwards of $5,25(1,000. The
order was so large lhal the rotitracl
wns distributed throughout the Australian stales lo factories equipped
to manufacture tho jam. Ii is predicted that llns industry will grenlty
siitniilnie the production of small
fruits, by providing a market for
nny excess in production.

"After my baby was born," Mrs.
Dickens states, "1 used to suffer with

about Dodd's Kidney I'ills and what
they have done for others, so I
thought I would get a box and see
what they would do for inc.
"I am pleased to say that after taking two boxes I found such great
relief I would not bc without them
in the house.
"My daughter, loo, bad been very
sick on and off for a long lime. Her
nerves got so bad we wcrc afraid
we would scc her in the hospital.
But I am pleased to say she is better through taking Dodd's Kidney
"I never thought Dodd's Kidney
Pills could have done such good
work and I am telling all my

desperately short of

must face the stern reality of England on
shorter rations than she has been for over a
hundred years, and France with only three days'
food reserve. Even from their present small
supplies they are saving Italy from collapse
through hunger.
Since shipping must be concentrated on the shortest
routes, Canada and the United States must continue to
be practically the only source of supply,
"anada must provide wheat and meat in increasing
quantities to meet a situation that imperils the issues of
the war.
Men who can be spared for work on the farms must
serve in this way. Those who are obliged to remain in
the city or town can at least raise vegetables iu their
gardens or on vacant lots.
Every effort will be made to see that labor is forthcoming to harvest the maximum crops that farmers can
An increased spring acreage in wheat and other grain
is vitally needed.
Stock raisers are asked to provide the greatest possible
production of meat, especially pork.
Starvation   is   threatening   our   Allies.   Everyone   in

The Ionic treatment through the
use of Dr. Williams' Pink Fills for

statements, They are without ambition or strength tu do their day's
work; are always tired out; have
hut little appetite and a poor digestion; cannot get a refreshing night's
sleep and are subject to headaches,
backaches and nervousness because
their blood is weak, watery and impure.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills give qtticl-
rclicf and permanently cure such
men and women, because of llieir direct aciion on the blood, which they
purify and build up to its normal
strength. As tlirougli tho use of
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills the blood
becomes rich and red it strengthens
thc muscles, tones up the- nerves,
makes lhe stomach capable of digesting lhe food anil repairs the waste
caused hy growth nr work. The
need in every family of a safe and
effective tonic such as Or. Williams'
Pink Pills is shown by the following
statement of Mrs. Julius Tuck, Mull,
Out., who says:���"I'efnic I began
the use of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills 1
was in -a most wretched and run
down condition. My blood was thin
and watery and my nerves were in
such a condition that the least noise
would make mc start and tremble,
and what a burden my housework
seemed, One of my neighbors advised nn lo take Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills and I have great reason to be
glad that I followed her advice, for
before 1 had used a half dozen boxes
all symptoms of my trouble had disappeared, and I was as well as ever
I had hern in my life, 1 have also
given the pills to my daughters with
the most beneficial results, and 1

ww are sometimes asked by persons
��� ~ who know his medicines, but are
not familiar with his interesting life
Tho boyhood days of Dr. A. W. Chase
were spent in the vicinity of Buffalo, N.Y.,
and as he had early decided to be a medical doctor, he took the first opportunity
of attendance at the University of Michigan, located at Ann Arbor.
After graduation he began the practice
of medicine in Ann Arbor, Mich., and, at
tho time represented in the illustration,
his reputation as a physician of exceptional skill had spread far beyond the confines of his State, and people came to him
for treatment from many miles around.
As he was accustomed to travel across
western Ontario to his native city
of Buffalo hc frequently stopped
ovcr at Canadian towns and cities
for special consultation, and in this
way made many ffiends in Canada.
The character and personality
of Dr. Chase was such that to

confidence and respect, and made lasting
friends wherever he went.
And thus it happened that when r>r. Chase
placed Ills most uuccessful pi-osi Tlptlunn on the
market, eo that the people inlKlit obtain them
more readily, thoy met with n. reception In Canada
un well as ln the United States.

Provincial Governments Make Appeal to People to Bend Every
Energy to Work of Greater Production, as Seriousness of
Food Situation is Not Yet Thoroughly I'nderstood
In au address delivered rcceully
by lion. T, II. Johnson, attorney-
general in lhe Manitoba legislature,
dealing with the proceedings of the
conference of provincial representatives at Ottawa, extreme weight was
laid upon the importance of tho
question of supplying the allies with
rood,   Mr. Johnson said iu part:
The first request of the federal authorities is lhat every provincial government ami legislature should constitute itself a war committee on
production, which will work in cooperation with the Canada food
hoard recently constituted. The appeal of this board has boon summarized as follows:
Canadians must plant this spring,
every possible acre of wheat, oats,
barley and rye.
_ firing into cultivation every possible acre ot new land for crop in
Increase cattle, hogs and sheep to
the greatest possible extent.
Secure the cultivation of garden
and vacant lots in town and city
with a view of raising the maximum
amount of vegetables.
Now as to the methods by wliicli
it is hoped to bring this about.
1. Thc provincial authorities scc
lhat a proper quantity of seed is
available and distributed in their
respective provinces.
2. That provincial governments undertake the work of ascertaining the
form of assistance which may bc required by their farmers in order to
secure the breaking in 1918 of a definite increased acreage of new land
more than would normally be broken
for crop in 1919.
3. Tlie assistance of provincial departments oi agriculture in taking
orders for farm tractors, and forwarding same to the Canada food
board at Ottawa, which board has
made available, to farmers at cost, a
large number of tractors.
4. The assistance of the provinces
through their educational departments in making 'teen-age boys
available by providing that such boys
shall not lose their educational
standing through absence from
school for thc purpose of working
on farms. Co-operation by provincial governments in securing 'teenage boys as recruits for soldiers of

urging increased food production to

By enlisting the assistance of all
newspapers to keep the need constantly before the public.
Towards tliis end, the Canada food
board will supply reading matter lo
newspapers and circularize boards of
trade, societies of all kinds women's
associations and other bodies.
The federal authorities will also,
in co-operation with the provinces,
financially assist in practical steps
which will ensure greater production.
The conference commended an appeal to the people of Canada calling
upon every person to work at something useful���preferably essential.
It further recommends to every province iu Canada, the abolition of all
private employment agencies and the
substitution therefore of provincially
conducted employment agencies
which will work in conjunction witli
a Dominion labor exchange, in tlie
hope that by this means the greatest facility will bc afforded in bringing together the employer and lhc
Japan's Job in the War
Proper Sphere of Activity Is in the
Orient and on the Eastern
In examining tlio question of dispatching Japanese troops to Kurope
it must hc noted that it was neither
the wish of her allies nor that of
Japan that she should thrust herself upon the European stage. The
writer is aware that the subject has
been discussed by certain publicists
of some allied countries, but he has
no knowledge of any formal request
having been made to Japan by any
of the allied governments to send an
expeditionary force to Kurope.
The reason is not far to seek.
Japan's proper sphere of activity is
in the Orient and on thc Eastern
Pacific, It was for this reason that,
when she entered the war, Japan, by
an agreement witli her ally, limited
her naval and military activities to
the Far East and its waters. True,
tiie sphere ol lier naval operations
was gradually extended. In certain
parts of thc Mediterranean a fleet of
Japanese destroyers is today co-op-
crating against the enemy submarines. But so far as the movement
of Japan's land forces is concerned
the basis of action first agreed upon
still remains intact, for no cause that
justifies its alteration has yet appeared.���T. Iycnaga, in thc Outlook.

The Only Heal Peace
It Must Be Made on the Battlefield
by the Defeat of German
The force against which we an
fighling, since it is only llirougli the
defeat of tliis force thai we can claim
the victory���and this force is the
German government, which is one
witli and is backed up, supported,
aided, and abetted by the German
people. Victory can be achieved,
then, only by the defeat .if both.
The German people have placed ihc
stamp of approval upon the invasion
of Belgium and arc even now demanding the annexation of that unfortunate slate; the German people
turned the Lusitania massacre into a
German fiesta; of thc two hundred
and odd Socialist papers in Germany
less than a dozen acqtiii seed in the
justice of thc attempt to separate
the governnieni Ihey now have. \\ e
have, on tho contrary, a wealth of
evidence that they do.
The trouble lies mucli deeper than
a superficial governmental form. It
is the entire system of German philosophy with which both government
and people are thoroughly impregnated. For years, all (Icrniau
thought lias bcon controlled by thc
doctrine of the famous triumvirate,
Nictszchc, Treitschkc, and Bernhardt Almost without exception, every
professor in every German university, every teacher in every German,
school, every preacher in every German pulpit has been teaching and
preaching of Germany's divine right,
by virtue of her superiority in mind
uml in morals, to anything she might
feel necessary lo her unlimited
growth regardless of who might bc
thc rightful owner. Deutschland
ubcr Alles is but the crystallization
of this entire philosophy. And as a
vital dogma of their political and religious faith the German peoples believe it and live it. Thitil this dogma is stripped from German philosophy, until there has becn beaten
into thc soul of every individual in
the empire that right alone makes
for might, and that there is no
righteousness in brute force���until
thc German people arc taught Unmeaning of personal individual honor, of national and intcnational morality, thc German people as well as
their government will continue to
constitute the greatest menace lo
civilization and to the peace of the
civilized world.
But what, yotl may ask, has all lliis
to do with Germany's preparations
for the next war? The connection is
not difficult to establish. Any peace
which does not embrace a permanent solution of those questions for
wliicli wc took up arms is unthinkable. But before wc can think of
peace wc must form a clear mental
conception of why we are fighting,
whom we arc fighting, and what wc
arc fighting for.
The Germans arc shrewd, cunning
and unscrupulous. A German so-
called democracy, with a .Scheidemann as its head and the Hohcnzollcrns behind the. curtain pulling the
string, would not be a difficult
thing to form; and, once formed,
how could wc, if wc arc honest in
our stated aims, refuse to make
peace. And having made peace, what
would there be to prevent the beast
from again raising Ids ugly head,
and while his fangs are still dripping with the blood of the millions
lie has caused lo be slain on the soil
of Europe, burying his claws in the
heart of the civilized world?
If wc destroy the Hohenzollerns
and leave untouched thc German
people with their false philosophy,
wc are applying merely a surface
treatment to a deep-seated canker,
which will only erupt again, morc
violent, more virulent than before.
If we would accomplish our purpose, then this power must bc destroyed; otherwise wc have lost the
war, and all the sacrifices of wealth
and of life will have been in vain.
Thc peace will not bc a peace, but as
I have said, a truce, and wc must at
once prepare for a greater, a more
consuming struggle. Lest wc make
such a peace, we must change our
mental process, revise war psychology, and sec lo it that the ability even
to war again is permanently removed from Germany and from all
things German, from llic quiet beer
drinker of Munich as thoroughly as
from tlie war lord at Wilhclmstrassc,
This can bc accomplished, not
tlirougli peace engineered about the
council table, but tlirougli peace
made ou the battlefield as a result of,
the destruction, the capture, or the |
dispersion oi the    German    army,���

The Way of the Hun
I As Long as Gr__t llritain Retains Control of the Seas, so Long
Will the Enemy he Held in Subjection and a Victory tor
The Allied Cause Assured
Developments of the Inst few
months have changed thc position on
land lo the enemy's advantage in a
most disconcerting and discouraging-
way. But as no one knows betttcr
than the enemy himself, it is at sea,
and not on land that lhc wai will
finally be decided. The factors, that
is to say, on which victory depends,
arc still those that derive from sea
power. How well the enemy understood this a year ago was proved by
his being compelled to drive the
Uniled States into belligerency rather than forego his only possible
stroke at the sea supplies that kept
the military alliance against liim in
munitions and stores, and the civil
populations, on whose well being and
contentment all military force is
founded, supplied with thc necessaries of living and prosperity. A year
ago, when the enemy's efforts to
make peace after his many defeats
on the Somme bad failed, when
President Wilson's last effort at an
amicable arrAigcment had shown all
the world that no settlement bv negotiations was possible, it became at
once clear that a ruthless submarine
attack on our supply ships would
immediately hc made. From the
day when Von Tirpitz first threatened the world with thc submarine, i-i
December, 1914, until she drove
America into war in February, 1917,
Germany was never under the faintest illusion about the sea .vir being
thc real war.
It is a vital matter that civilians in
all countries should bear this fundamental truth in mind, especially at
the moment when the disappearance
of Russia has altered the whole balance of power on laud. For the disappearance of Russia and the change
in thc military situation that results
do not in the least degree affect the
validity of tlie axiom on which our
enemy has ac'ed consistently and
from the first. For the military
change amounts only to thi*-, that un-
til the American army redresses the
balance on land, tlie allied forces are
possibly insufficient to obtain a definite military victory. But meanwhile, the enemy forces are still less
able to obtain a decision in their
favor. The change in balance, then,
restores a situation gravely Weighted
against the central powers to equality only. And it is at best, temporary.
Thc problem of the day, then, i.*
civil endurance; how shall we hold
out till the enemy force is spent? It
is largely a matter of confidence���ol
the certainty of ultimate and complete success. This confidence���if I
am right in saying that ultimate success turns on the sea war���should
now bc better founded than i; has
ever becn, for the reason that never
before have wc had a better assurance that a sea power would bo
rightly used. The reform of the admiralty, initiated by the Criticisms ot
last April and May, begun hy Mr.
Lloyd George in the end of the latter month and now completed by Sir
Eric Gcddcs, should form the turning point in tlie war.���Arthur Pollen

\ High Seas Piracy Has No Limit Set
In Frightfulness
"Vou have only .,.0 miles to go,"
jeered the commander of a Hun submarine as he ordered thc open boat
in wliicli were Claude Fcatherstoncj
a young apprentice from Tunbridgc
Wells, and seven other British sailors to shove off. They had only
two tins of bully beef aboard, anil
suffered terribly for three ami a half
days before they wen.- picked up.
Their ship was torpedoed on the
morning of September 11 wilhout the
slightest warning, the engine room
being hit and the boilers burst. Many
of lh.1 engineers and firemen were
fearfully scalded, and as lhe ship's
gun was put out of action the crew
were helpless. The submarine came
to the surface and opened fire with
both guns, and as the sailors began
to lower their boats aimed directly
nt theni.
i "The Huns summoned us alongside," said young Featherstone, as
he described his experience, "and
then, putting a prize crew in my
boat, made us row backwards and
forwards for four hours from the
ship to thc submarine with copper,
brass and olhcr fittings of value.
They took our gun, and the German sailors were allowed to go
aboard and take any clothing they

flaunted them in our faces!
"They commandeered all our food
aud meant lo turn us adrift to
starve, but fortunately our officer
managed to hide two tins of bully
beef. They then put bombs in the
hold of the ship and sank her and
left us to our fate.
"For three and a half days we
drifted and tossed about in a heavy
sea, suffering terribly from hunger
and thirst. Our faces were blistered
by thc continual wash of the sea.
and wc were completely exhausted.
Wc were nearly at our last gasp and
ready to cud it all and jump overboard, when a patrol boat hove in
sight and wc w;cre rescued."
Another boat, containing 25 of the
crew, was set adrift separately and
Featherstone had no idea what had
become of it. It has since been recovered with only five men, all
, Chinamen, alive. As it put off from
, thc submarine the Germans shelled
it, killing four of the men, and the
same night it capsized two or three
limes, drowning others.

Escape From Murder by Arabs After

Adventures such as rarely befall
British soldiers arc recorded by
Sergt. J. Harte, of tlie Inland Water
Transport, reports the Daily Chronicle. They include escape from murder by Arabs after being shipwrecked, and a nine day's tramp in thc
desert. Sergt. Harte had written to
his relatives to say hc is alive and

The tow ropes were cut, and the

for many days. At last thc boat was
driven ashore wilh its occupants under a cliff ou the Arabian coast. Immediately the craft was sighted 300
Arabs, armed with knives, swarmed
aboard and looted it.
Sergeant Harte says: "Our party
could not put up much of a fight, but
I knocked one Bedouin over the
ship's side, and tit cm got knocked out
myself and thrown into the surf.
"When the Arabs got us well inland, lhcy told us to get ready to
have our throats cut, which they expressed their intention of doing as
soon as they had taken everything
from the ship. Nothing, however,
