Would Regain Control of Dye Trade
From Switzerland collies a report
that a -great dye cartel, or industrial
combine, has been organized in Ger-
r.ianj,-, with a capital of $250,000,000,
embracing all the manufacturers of
dyestuffs in the country. The purpose of this organization is, after the
war is over, to embark- upon an industrial war in order to regain for
Germany thc trade in dyestuffs which
she has lost. The attempt will probably tail. In Britain, in France and
I iu the United Stales tlie war lias
stimulated the production of dye-
stuffs, and this industry is so closely
related to the prodltlcion of war material that thc governments of these
countries arc determined not to permit Germany again to secure a monopoly in that line,

British Improving High ways
Fine, New Roads Follow    Trail    of
Ruin in  France
Hundreds of miles of the smooth,
white macadam roads of northern
France will remain for many yean
after the war as a real memorial to
the devastated towns the Germans
left after their retreat in the spring.
All over northern France thc roads
arc being widened and resurfaced
with stone and rubble taken from the
wrecked houses of Pcronne, Albert,
Arras and countless other ruined
towns and villages.
As fast as the Britisii soldiers clear
away the debris of the towns it is
piled inlo lorries and distributed iu
heaps along the main roads. There
German prisoners toil the day long,
pounding it into level patches, which
the great sleam rollers, many of theni
bearing familiar American names,
grind quickly iulo smooth macadam
for the business of transport.
The brick and stone of these obi
buildings make as good road material
as could be obtained anywhere, and
the work of the German dynamiters
has been so thorough that much of it
is crushed fine enough to need no
further preparation.
The roads of northern France al--
ways wcrc excellent, but Ihey never
were better than today. The on'y
complaint travellers had against them
in the old days was that lhc paved
strip iu the centre was too narrow'.
That complaint cannot be made after
the Britisii highway plans have been %
completed, for all the main highways
will be macadamized to a width permitting three broad gauge lorries lo
run abreast, and even the byways
will have a paved surface wide enough
to allow traffic to pass easily al any
Excessive dustiness is the only
fault today, (or war economies will
not permit the use of precious oil oil
There, is little need anywhere in
tllis district for straightening mails
or alteringVoutes, because lhc roads
of northern France mostly run as
sltaight as au arrow's flight. Most
of the great highways wine laid out
iu Napoleon's time by militarj purveyors, and their strategic value and
importance always has kepi primarily in mind by the French governmi ni.

Kriiain's New Armies DuritijJ The Past  .'ear Have Captured

"A year ago we were thrilling to
tbe first triumphs of our new armies.
Wc had doubts���il cau liow be confessed���oi those armies, not active
mistrust, but sufficient misgivings
to tinge our hopes.
"In the course of the year these
new armies of ours have taken ove
70,001' prisoners, including Will officers, lhcy havc captured 450 German guns, wiih more than 2,000 minor pieces like machine guns an,',
Irench mortars.    This is tltc captur

whole German divisions a.s now constituted, wiih all iis equipment, These
new armies have had against them
the whole military strength oi the
German empire- -lhat is to say, of
every division in the German armies,
"ll is these new armies which in
tlle course of the year have taken
all three ridges- namely,Mhc Albert
Ridge, lhe Vimy Ridge, and the .Messines Ridge���on which, from Ypres
to the So,nine, the Germans bail
drawn their lines as being the .strongest positions to hold on this front,
and enthroned on which they overlooked all our preparations for al-
lat-k. No fortress in history possessed one tithe of thc defensive
strength of any one of these ridges
fortified a.s the Germans bad-fortified
them, and held by the flower of ike j en
li,,-,nan army under lhc strictest orders to fight lo the deaih and not
yield  an  inch  of ground.
"This is what our new armies have
done in tiie course of lhc year. Of
course, they have won much ground,
a hundred villages, and endless
strongholds and redoubts. Km geography is immaterial, Thc task sei
Ihem was not lhc winning of acres,
bul the breaking of the German arm-
i"s, which, with 40 years of preparation, had thought themselves invincible and had proposed to overrun
���nil Europe and constitute themselves
dictators of the world.
"Without preparation and averse
from war, the peaceful peoples of
Ihc Britisii Empire, inspired by their
cause and by virtue of the slulT that
Is in them, have made themselves
into a power which first held at bay,
then made head against, and now is
wearing down thc strength of Germany, and of the matter in which
Ihey have done it it is impossible
to speak in adequate phrases.
"Though the job be long or short
the army has perfect confidence that
it is better, bolh man for man and
as a fighting machine, than the armies of Germany, and that but one
end can come. Tt is a year villi
which we can be satisfied."���Loii-

F*ound to Be  Useless for Protection
of Warships at Sea
It was almost inevitable thai ill
the search for some quickly improvised anti-submarine protection for
merchant shipping, lhc mind should
think of the placing of some obstruction in the path of the torpedo,
which would serve to arrest or explode it at some distance from thc
For the reason that, for many
years, as far back probably as the
lirst appearance of a successful automatic torpedo, warships had becn
protected, when at anchor, by hanging a curtain of steel netting around
ihem, the public jumped to the conclusion that if nets were a good protection for nt ship at anchor .they
must be so I'or a ship under way-
hut that is where, lhcy were in error, says tbe Scientific American.
So far as warships arc concerned,
il has been found that not only was
lhe resistance of the nets so great
as, to cut down lhc speed of a. battle
ship to live or six knots, but also
that the eddies and other forms of
disturbance developed by dragging
ibe huge area of the netting through
the water, made it difficult lo keep
the ships under that complete control which is so essential lo successful naval manoeuvres. Furthermore,
although lhe maintenance of a net
at a distance of 20 to 30 feel from
the side of a ship by means of booms
and guy ropes is not a difficult matter when the ship is in a sheltered
roadstead or harbor, it would be an
absolute impossibility if jl ship wire
steaming in a gale of wind through
a heavy seaway.
And 'this brines ns face to face

commend to all those inventors wbo|

on the Atlantic ocean,    namely, thai

marine service after the war?" 1 asked lhc inventor of the wirlcss telegraph.
"1 think that the commercial triplane for long distance passeugei
navel is a practicable thing." he
answered. "1 do not believe that lhe
submarine will be used for ocean tra-
' I been yel in time of peace. Why go under
lhc water when you eau iravcl on its
sin facer"
"One might ask why go over the
water when one can travel on ils surface?"   [ replied.
".Vo," the inventor retorted, "that
i.s uot tjiiite the same thing. A flying
machine eliminates dangers, obstacles
distances. It shortens travelling. One
can ily from New York to Chicago,
for instance, in a straight line through
the air, while on the surface you
have lo make many twists and turns
���ami so lose much time. I do not,
think the submarine will ever bc us-;
cd successfully for commerce.
"Itttl 1 believe that thc submarine
problems is thc most serious presented by the war and I do not believe
in letting people become unduly optimistic about its solution," Senator
.Marconi concluded. "I do not want
lo discuss the. probable duration of
the war, but 1 know that it will end
victoriously for ihc Allies.
"The contribution of Italy to the
cause of democracy is not so widely

like to have il.
"It was Italy's declaration of neutrality that enabled France lo withdraw a million men fram the Italian

High Prices For Yean
Farm  Products   Will   Bring   High
Prices for Years After Peace
Is Declared
Speaking to the Western Canada
Irrigation Association at Maple
Creek, Honorable W. R. Motherwell,
minister of agriculture for thc province of Saskatchewan, predicted that
high prices for farm products would
continue for years after the establishment of peace. Surplus stocks
had been exhausted, and It would
take a long time to restore them. In
the rush to produce every bushel
possible during the war, Mr. Motherwell thought that in some cases tht
best agricultural methods were not
being followed, and he urged all farmers to practice the best methods, so
that thc production might be kept up,
not merely for a year or two, but
for manv years to come. He pointed out that the depletion of the
European herds would have a serious
effect upon the fertility of the soil
of that country, and that Western
Canada must be prepared to do its
share toward supplying food fro
ducts for tbe world.

Mr. Phillips is in town today arranging for a general meeting of
our citizens to have Capt, Pearson
of tlie Y, M. G, A. give au address
next Thursday afternoon and evening and arrange for a campaign to
raise funds for the Society which is
doing so much for the boys at the
Front. Everyone knows the value
of the work throughout Canada,
and it certainly intensified in the
war theatre, wheie amusements
are provided and succor administer
ed, mostly free. If a soldier is
wo..uded, and there is no hope of
recovery, his relatives arc met and
conducted to the bedside of the dying soldier. Capt. Pearson, was
the first military officer to go over.
seas and met with marked success.
The Hi itish War Office, recognizing the value of the Y. M. C. A,
work among the Canadian troops,
asked for a man to organize their
system, and Capt Pearson was
sent, He is now in Cauada conducting a campaign ..for funds to
carry oil the Canadian work, None
of the money now being raised will
be used for the ordinary work of
the Y, M. C. A. All will be used
for the National Militia Service.
We are asked why does not the
Government pay for this work? The
government bears the major cost of
transportation, and the majority of
the Association Officers Overseas
are paid on the military scale.
Therefore, the Association spends
most of its money directly on comforts and service* for soldiers, The
cost of administration overseas is
less than one per cent. Mayor
M3Kenzie i.s calling a meeting of
citizens tonight to organize a campaign for raising {funds for this
worthy object. ,

(i lontinuod.)
Tlicy ivriii upstairs, in lhc dusk, by
�� steep staircase, closed at tlu- head
inid foot bj doors. Tlicy emerged
oul of .the darkness of iiie staircase.
Into an upper corridor, from the
windows of which thev saw only the
Mist. The high wall surrounding
the fin in steading shut out nearly all
the world. But il was lighter in the
corridor, and the rainy _ky seemed
to be breaking up into a stormy afterglow.
Upstairs, there wore [our rooms;
three small and bare, and wilh just
enough room for a narrow iron hed
and a washsland. A shelf, jutting
out from the walls, was evidently intended lo be used as a dressing table,
tame, above each hung a square mirror in a bamboo frami. Pegs along
the walls were rill there was in the
way of wardrobe accommodation.
Kale Bartlett looked into each ,,f
the little rooms, closed the door, and
went on. Opening the fourth door,
slu   paused.
"Tllis will be for you and me, my
lamb," she said, and stood back to
allow Dully lo pass.
The fonrlh room had two windows
��� one looking out of llie gable end
of the house, overlooking a garden,
full of weeds witli a few giant cabbage stalks am,,ni; them; ihe other
overlooking lhe courtyard below. The
luxury of the room after the others
was startling. There was a square
four-poster bed of satin wood and
grilling, ll was draped wilh curtains
of rosc-colored damask. 'Ihere was
a gilt couch covered with the same
damask, and chairs gilt and rose-colored stood about on a rose-colored
The bed stood iii an alcove; and
the room was furnished very much
as a silling room; mirrors on the
wall with candle brackets attached
to them; there was a console table
of lhe First Empire, a spindle-shank-
re) desk, by lhe wall; a minute book-
rase in the corner showed the backs
of gaily-bound books.
An amazing room to lind in a
place of the sort; but Mrs. Bartlctt
did not seem surprised. She went
across the room and opened a door
on the opposite side. It led into a
dressing room lil only by a half-
moon window, high up. There were
the arrangements for washing; the
<lri siing table, with its top of rouge
marble and ils delicate china. A few
feminine trifles were on the dressing
table���a scent bottle, a cut glass
powder box. On the floor lay a
scrap of blue ribbon, such ribbon as
might have tied a chocolate box*.
She looked about and her face was
terrible, as though she saw something
not to be spoken of. She picked up
tlle blue ribbon between her fingers
and thumb, holding it away from
her, as though il w< re poisonous.
"It smells of musk," she said. "The
whole, place smells of it, It is a
hateful smell."
"Ves," said Dolly, ill a low voice,
"il makes tin- feel faint. The winders arc all r��luit."
Kale Bartlett pushed at a window.
She could not move il; it was nailed down, Aii attempt to open it at
tin top was more successful. Il came
down a few inches, letting lh,- wel
air inlo lln   room.
"Everything is damp, 1   daresay,"
she said, going over and beginning to
i-trip i'he lied, which wns covered wiih
a rose -.ill. eiderdown, "I'll light rr

"I don't like this place, Kale," she
said, wilh a shiver. "1 keep looking
over my shoulder ihinking there is

Dully came to Inr side.
"Oh Kale," slu- said, "why am I
here? What can Mr. Mcyrick be
Chinking aboul ns? The suspense
will kill him, Why did you let that
i.'ian lake me away to Ihis horrible
place���that horrible man? What i.s
the meaning of it all?"
"Don't blame me, my dearie," said
lhe woman humbly, "1 followed as

yon, till we gel away back to England and the Squire. Sure, I didn't

were plenty of English people on
��� he streets today. My poor thoughts
were all in a tangle and a trouble.
1 fell 1 musl gel you back quietly,

"Oh," said the girl slowly, with a
bewildered movement of her hands'
to her forehead, "ihey might think
I went uf my own free will! How
could they, seeing what Mr. Mcyrick
is? No girl would want lo leave
him.  would they,  Kale?"
"They would not, acushla. Bul we
won't give the bad people a chance
of talking. We'll steal bark quietly
as we crime. I'll get a note out lo
Mr. Meyrick lo let him know where
we are. He'll come to us if we can'l
get mil ourselves. You're not afraid
of him, surely, jewel?"
"No, indeed," said the girl, wilh
sudden fervor. "I am not at all
afraid of him. I trust him 1oo completely, lie would be dreadfully sorry for us."
"All that's right, that's right! Tie
is a good man, and no mistake, if
many men were like liim earth
would be a heaven for poor women,
where oflrn enough now 'tis lull. He
knows how to bc good lo a woman,
(iod bless him I"
The fire burned up brightly, while
Mrs. Bartlett went and stripped the
bed of its bedclothes, setting them
lo air before the fire. . Afterwards
she went downstairs and found tea
set out on the table and the kettle
boiling. No sign of Cooper anywhere. He must have gone in search
of thc 'kings ihey would need.
She made the tea, brought a cup
to Dolly, and coaxed her to drink it.
The girl by this time looked terribly
{aligned. When the bejl ivas made
she was Induced to go ro bed, while
she protested thai she wanted to escape now, tonight, to get to where
there were English people, and put
herself under their protection. The
dark was by this time in the room.
Kate. Bartlett soothed her as she
would a tired child. Sure, what
would Ihey bc doing this time of the
night, in the mist and the darkness!
''.is maybe going over the cliffs thej
would be. Miss Dolly was to sleep
and be rested before tomorrow. Tomorrow she would see what would
happen. The Squire was nol going
to be in pain longiv than Kate could
Having ascertained that Dolly

in the door. She lucked the door
and put the key ill her pocket. She

been lit, but it spluttered and showed signs of going out. She found a

Glory Of The Prairie
The  Splendor  of a  Western   Sunset
Is Described
A band of cloud bars the horizon
t" ihc sinking sun. It hangs a flattened arch imminent over the prairie
\ cl so soft and luminous are ils
gray-blue folds, so fantastic arc tlie
shapes it takes and holds and loses,
that the imagination i.s more bent on
the wcavings of ils slinllle ihan un
the glory that lies dimmed but just
The texture is of ihose airy ihings
women wear tu lhc theatre; lluffy as
down and yet clinging lo a certain
definite line of beauty. Grotesque
shapes enn rgc, shadow themselves a
brief moment against the western
plow, and dissolve into murky Void.
Here is Aurora speeding her chariot;
and close behind follows a monster
of a prehistoric age, crawling upon
ils belly across lhe emblazoned sky
and thin,ling out a devouring'
tongue of flame. Buffalo and braver,
Indians waving tomahawks, trailing
daschunds, coffee pots and elevators
��� ���all these things are lo be seen lhis
wonderful night singed upon llic
western sky.
But of a sudden and framed by
this pagan fantasy, ihe sun illuminates the arch between cloud and skyline. Vivid in that golden haze stand
out two tiny cloudlets, two glowing
marionettes upon the. earthy stage���
or, if you will, lhe cherubim and
scraphin guarding the holy, place of
the  sun's decline.
No mountain scenery, no rocky-
gorge, no famed approach of lhe
tourist, can vie with this splendor of
prairie sunset. Sea horizons alone
compare; but ihese lack in their
glittering and corrugated expanse
the melting shadows of the prairie,
and the grave iinchidden face il
turns lo heaven.
Ah! is it not because we now must
bid our"prairie, a Under adieu that
we have for her in this her vestal
hour a choking rush of love and
Eor see���already little pines,
eniulant in their serried ranks of the
wheat fields that lie. at llieir feet,
encroach upon our vision. Already
the immemorial rock thrusts shoulders pink and gray through lhe sward.
Un either side the rail track the dark
fringr deepens; and only back there
behind us, in the narrow vista cut
by man, still domineers the. unbroken
line of Ihe prairie.
Athwart it there still lumps a band
of sunset cloud, now etched iu space
as the steel bridge of the. railway
As we rush eastward, night with
long strides advances upon us. Behind pales the prairie sunset.
Kindly night draws her veil over
the little lakes wc traverse���over
llieir dark pools and hidden mysteries. Girt in their sombre pines,
here and there they are lit by the
roseate cloud.
But the prairie lies far behind, and
ever westward ovcr ils grave face
flaunts the setting sun.���Free Press.

One Reason Why  .Prices  .Are Advanced on the  Home Market
One of the.  very    obvious  reasons
why the price  of ��-ggs has" been increasingly  high  in  Canada  since  tlle
outbreak of war   three years ago is
that instead of keeping all her eggs
at home, as was practically thc case
in  1914i Canada has been  exporting
large consignments of eggs to England.      Formerly    Great Britain got
fifty per cent, of her eggs from Kussia,    bul    thai    source of supply was
almost completely cut oil',    and lhe
void has been  filled  as  far as possible  by  eggs   from  Canada  and    the

Canada's Glory
In all the Irials and .sufferings of
the war it i.s a source of constant
consolation and pride to the people
of this country thai the states of
Great Britain and their soldiers have
shown such unflinching determination
i nil valor in the struggle. We well
know the bitter sacrifices which Canada has made, The Ypres salient and
Viiny Ridge have been watered with
her best blood, as with ours. In
death, as through all lhc years of
their slate's existence, her sons have
been at our side. And we. arc grateful to ihem and to her.���London

!j 14,700 great  hundreds  (of  1.0 eggs
I in  1911,   none  al   all   in   1912,    am
1,950 in  1913.      Home  requirements
lhad so greatly increased,  that    Canada had become a large importer of
! eggs, and the total output was readily absorbed    at    satisfactory prices.
At  the  same    lime    tire    increasing
competition of continental sources of
I supply on  the  overseas market,  favored, as they were, by steadily growling efficiency in organization for collecting, packing, grading, storing and
marketing, lower    production    costs,
and by a natural advantage  of geo-
prapllical    situation,      had     brought
'prices to a level lhat ceased to hold
out  special attractions to  the    shipper." ,
"The war had an immediate effect
upon these supplies, the total imports
dropping from 21,579,950 great hundreds in 1913 to 17,90-1,805 in 1914,
10,240,926 in 1915 and 6,606,411 in
1916. Russian eggs in particular,
which had furnished ovcr fifty per
cent, of the total in 1913 dropped
from   11,453,277    great     hundreds   in
1913 lo 6,870.827 in 1914; 3,074,156
in 1915 and 734,525 or eleven per
cent, of the. total in 1910. 'This decrease in supplies-from the continent
resulted naturally, in producing high I
prices and a strong demand for'
transatlantic eggs, and the greatly
increased production of Canadian
eggs has enabled our shippers to take
full advantage  of the  situation.      In
1914 Canadian egg imports inlo this
country were 361,173 great hundreds,
in 1914, '116,320 and in 1916, 1,431-
"Considerable complaint was made
of the pack of eggs scut forward in
1914, and the resulting condition in
which tlle product reached the market. These initial disadvantages, however, have been largely overcome by
the shippers and al the present lime
Canadian eggs occupy a very satis-
i factory position in lire eyes of the
trade. 'They are v.ry atlracliv.lv

color, of good size and weight, and
while they must necessarily rank below Danish and Irisli fresh eggs,
they are generally superior to all bul
the best grades of Russian eggs, especially as regards size and appear-
Hurc. 'i'hey always command a premium of from one to two shillings

Better Things
Lei it be said once for all that ?t Is
better for both body and soul to bc
obliged to go hungry sometimes than
to be full always; it is wholesomcr to
be weary frequently from hard work
than to keep on a dead level of comfort, or to know weariness only from
the .spinning dance and the. daily
pleasure; il is cleaner to be dusty and
bathed in the dust and sweat of battle than to be so sheltered as not lo
know lhe meaning of a hand-to-hand
Conflict with a real problem or fierce
temptation; it is grander to break the
shackles of exchislvencss and walk
free in lhc dingy city of social unpopularity than to bc the idol of men
and women who do not count for,
but rather against, thc progress of
the race,���Bishop  Brent.

Competitions for    Boys    and    Girls
Attracts Great  Interest
The Dominion minister of agricul-
tllic has invited the assistance of the
Canadian Bankers' Asosciation iu
promoting the live slock industry by
means of prizes, to be known as "The
Canadian Bankers' Prizes'' to be offered at fall fairs throughout Canada
in the. autumn of this year. Thc
members of the association have responded favorably, and while the
prizes will be designed as above, the
government is sharing in thc cost.
These competitions will afford especial opportunities for interesting
boys and their parents iu the bank
as au institution, as well as bringing
forcibly before the minds sonic idea
of the importance of live stock
When a great institution like a bank
takes a practical interest iu the live
stock industry of the district, the
farm boy will be led to view tlie matter from a standpoint entirely different from the one to which be has
been accustomed.
In districts where beef cattle predominate, it is expected thai the
Canadian Bankers' Calf Prizes, will
bc for calves of beef type, and in
dairy sections for calves of dairy-
type. In all cases, the prizes for pigs
shall be offered for pigs of bacon
type only.
Calves and pigs entered for competition must have,been born on or
after March 15th, 1917. and must be
the property of the exhibitor or thc
exhibitor's parent or guardian.

It is an earnest of all these, but it is
also a symbol of that union of mind
and feeling between the ordered democracies of England, France and
Ihc United Slates, which promises to
play the greatest part in moulding
the future ideals and the future destinies of the world. This union, as
we have more than once insisted, bids
fair to rank for ever amongst thc
greatest historic landmarks in thc
moral .and politcal history of mankind. It is too large and loo near a

ou all that is best and most solid in
the tried and trusted traditions of the
three democracies who have combined with most success the blessings of
progressive liberty and the blessings
of stable, order in their national life.
We know that the principles in
which these traditions havc their
roots are sacred, and that from them
no evil can proceed. Wc feel lhat

A Six-Hour Working Day
An Ideal Condition That Is   Worth
Striving For
"The humdrum life led by the vast
majority of the industrial classes is
little understood by those whose
lines are cast in pleasant places. 1
dobut it even those who have been
withdrawn from it to face the dangers, excitement, and hardships of
the trench and the battle line will
care to endure it again.
"The only way in which this
dirary mind-numbing, soul-deadcn-
ing monotony can bc relieved is by
the adoption of a six-hour working
day. While the mechanical machine
would run for twelve hours a day
instead of eighl, the human machines, if I may use the phrase,
would consist of two shiils, each
working six hours. I am a great advocate of this.
"I believe���and my belief is based
upon practical experience���the human .machine could and would do
as much in six hours as in eight,
except in a few rare industries where
exceptional conditions prevail, while
the extra hours worked by the mechanical machine would enable such
an increased output to be obtained
as lo ensure tlie possibility of tlie
same wages being paid to the human
machine for six, as arc al present
paid for eight hours' work. For It
is obvious that thc mechanical machine, except for a slightly Increased cost of coal for steam or driving
purposes, will work for twelve hours
at much the same cost as it now
works for eight, and with but little
extra depreciation.
"And the extra hours of leisure
could be devoted to mental or physical development, thus fitting the
worker for higher things. This ideal
may nol be attainable at once, but it
is worth striving for."���I.ord Lever-
