Bam Fires
Lack of Windows an    Incentive   to
Dangerous Practices
In any statement of buildings destroyed by lire, bams and stables occupy a prominent place- One of the
chief reasons for this is the necessary use of lanterns and other lighls.
In many barns artificial light must be
used at almost all hours, with thc result, mt element of danger.
'Ihere is nothing more dangerous
than a lighted match in a barn, with,
probably, loose straw or hay on the
floor, and everything as dry as tinder.
Daylight is one. of the cheapest of
our natural resources, and il is easily
transmitted. While making use of
df.ylight, farmers will at the same
time remove a very serious element
of lire danger���a cause of fires in
barns and stables which can only be
charged to pure carelessness-
To whom it may concern: This is
to certify that 1 have used MINARD'S LINIMENT myself as well

a liniment was required and have
never failed to get the desired effect.

The Australian Rabbit
When the native Australian or the
long-time resident hears the cry,
"Rabbo, wild rabbo! Rabbol" he
knows lhat lie can also get a cheap
dinner that will also taste good, for
the rabbit huckster is going by. But
rabbits are not now nearly so cheap
as they were before the war. The demand for meat of any kind has raised the price- The supply, however, is
almost Inexhaustible, and since refrigeration and canning have been undertaken on a large scale rabbit flesh
has become an important item in the
food supply of the world. One Australian linn last year canned 385,636
rabbits, and millions go to Kngland
and other countries in cold storage-

A Landmark in History
The revolution in Petrograd may

facts in determining German defeat,
and one of the landmarks in human
history, as it indicates bringing 180,-
000,000 of people within the frontiers
of democracy, hor Germany any uprising of the Russian people would
Ik- a defeat beyond all compare, because the national will of the Russian people at all times has been to
drive the Germans oul of Russia���

German influence. If Russia has al
last awakened, if Russia has at last,
through patriotic Russian leaders,
taken charge of her government, her

Victims Can Cure Themselves With
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
With thc coming of March people
who are afflicted with rheumatism
begin to have unpleasant reminders
of their trouble. The wcalher is
changeable���balmy nnd springlike onc
day, raw, cold and piercing the next.
It is such sudden changes of weather
lhat sets the pangs and tortures of
rheumatism, lumbago and sciatica go
ing. 13ut it must bc borne in mind
that although wcalher conditions
start the pains, the trouble is deeply
rooted ill the blood, and can only be
cured through the blood- All the lotions and liniments in the world can't
cure rheumatism. Rubbing may seem
to ease the pain while you.are rubbing, but there its value ends. Only
llirougli the blood can you cure rheumatism. That's why Dr- Williams'
Pink I'ills have so many thousands
of cures of lhis trouble to their credit. The new, rich blood which they
actually make drives out the poisonous acid and rheumatism is vanquished. Among many sufferers from
rheumatism who have been cured by
this medicine is Mr- C. 11. McGee,
freight shed foreman for thc G.T.R.
at Peterboro, who says:���"In the
course of my work 1 am naturally
exposed lo all hinds of weather, with
the resull that about two years ago
1 contracted rheumatism which sc-
tled in my legs. At times I could
hardly walk, and often had lo quit
my day's work owing lo the stiffness
and the paiu. 1 tried different remedies without getting any help until 1
began the use of Dr. Williams' l'ink
Pills- i. used six boxes of these and
can say that 1 am about as well as
ever 1 was. I still take the pills occasionally, and I hope thai my experience may be of benefit to some oilier
rheumatic sufferer."

to cure yourself today with Dr.

An Aerial Battle
Airmen in Fleets Fought While
Thousands Gazed
The Paris Libcrtc's correspondent
on,the Somme gives an account of
an aerial battle which took place over
the German lines near Baupaumc, the
fluctuations of which were followed
by thousands of anxious spectators.
lhe battle was joined at a height of
9,000 feet. The German fleet consisted of at least 38 Fokkers and
Rumplers, while there were only 30
British machines-
The issue hung long in the balance.
The first to bc put out of action was
a Fokker. It whirled giddily for a
moment, burst into flames, and then
crashed to thc ground. Soon afler-
v aids a British biplane was badly
hit- Next Iwo German aeroplanes
came to grief at a short distance
from their line. Thc British .airmen
displayed very great superiority and
in the end remained masters of the
air, pursuing the enemy with the utmost daring. The enemy squadrons
were completely routed with losses
considerably greater, than those sustained by the British-

shaved the following dialogue took
place between him and the operator:
Barber���Have you ever been here

Thc Scot and His Bible
An English visitor was being escorted round the city and shown the
historic spols by au industrious and
philosophic cabman. "Stopping near
to Grcyfriars," the cabman said,
gravely. "Il was here where John
Knox studied his discourses. Yonder
is the place where John Knox sprained his knee, hurrying up the hill to
talk straight to Queen Mary," and a
little later, "Up there is liie place
where John Knox made the jado
tremble." The Englishman, not profoundly impressed, inquired, "But
who is this John Knox, Sandy?" The
Edinburgh cabman, stunned and indignant, cried, "Mon, do you tiae read
your Bible?''

known now a.s President eft the Canadian Pacific Railway Company,
When lhc inner hisioiy ol iiie war
comes to he written lie will bc slill
belter known ns one of the effective
organizers ol victory, From the he-
fcillllillg he threw his energy, and directed lhe energies of many of his
stall, iulo the national cause-
When asked for a statement as to
Canada's grcatcsl needs at ihis critical lime, especially in making arrangements for returned soldiers,
Lord Shauglincssy said in part:
Thc return ol our soldiers will be
a tremendous opportunity for the
counlry. Shall we seize it, or bungle
and miss il? Thai will be the test
of the quality of Canadian statesmanship,
W'e havc always wanted men to
develop the country. Well, there
tl-cy are, or will bc���ready lo our
hand- Immigration is desirable, but
uncertain. These nun of ours .will
conic home as a matter of course.
They will not come back exactly
the same as they were, but Some people have an absurdly exaggerated idea
of the change we may expect. The
slacker has been improved by discipline, and the downright steady' man
lias certainly not been turned into a
slacker. Taken as a whole, the men
v>ho return able-bodied will be found
better men than ever, physically and
menially���more hardy, self-reliant
and enterprising; their minds widened by experience- Some of them
will naturally take a littc time to settle down and get their bearings. But
that will bc only a passing phase.
1 take for granted that the present
system of getting cx-soldiers employment will be greatly improved
and developed, for it is barely able
to place the few thousands already
with us. But even if the system is
eo improved that every man returning after the war gets some sort of
a job, it docs not follow that wc
shall have any great cause to boast.
We shall have achieved a negative,
success; but wc must aim at something higher, a more positive success.
There is too much haphazard employment, at the best of times; and
witii a flood of men having to be
placed simultaneously llicrc is a
greatly increased danger of shoving
them inlo places without enough regard to suitability- Pulling round
pegs into square holes does not pay.
Having still some lime to prepare,
there will bc no excuse if we do not
devise schemes of employment which
will use a high percentage of each
man's capacity, instead of a low percentage.
The man and bis employer and the
country at large will all gain by this
The man can make most by work

for. The industry that he is engaged
In prospers by his good work, and
the counlry as a whole prospers or

I am glad to hear that the National
Service Commission is taking steps to
discover the previous trade or calling
of each man now under arms, aim
iiis intuitions or capacities for his
future career, a't any rate in the matter of agriculture- This is the foundation Industry of the whole country.
Farming should be made so profit
able, by educational and financial aid,
and lhe social conditions of rural llffl
should be so improved, that thousands of men wilh natural Inclinations that way will be attracted to
agriculture and will succeed at it.
But evctl when lhal is done, the

lhe skill they lack- I am sure it
would pay the country to give it
We must use brains and ingenuity
in forming our plans for doing the
best that can bc done for���and wilh
���the returning men.
Good people often say to them,
"Nothing is too good for you." It is
easy to talk like that, in vague generalities- But we have got to conic
down to particulars, and lind oul in.
detail what is best for the men���yes,
and for each particular man, with his
individual capacities and aptitudes.
By doing that very thing for men
returning disabled, the Military Hospitals Commission has given the
| country a splendid lead. This lead
should bc followed in dealing with
the mass of men returning later on.
The benefits of this system , should
finally be extended to our people gen-
crally, so that every boy on leaving
school should be directed and helped
into the occupation that he can do
best in���anr\trained specially for it,
whenever that is by any means possible. In some cases, of course, it 's
hard to tell what a boy will be most
fit for, until long after he leaves
school- But even in such a case a
gcod deal can bc done to keep him
out of work that lie i.s positively unfit for.
Thc Commission, I notice, gives
men a good deal of occupation and
instruction, while they arc still under
medical treatment. In fact, these occupations form part of the curative
treatment���a really valuable part. But
they also help to develop a man's
technical skill- Often they reveal astonishing talents wliicli even thc man
himself did not know he possessed.
This skill is developed, and these
talents are discovered and trained, as
they never would havc been if the
men had not become hospital patients. It is a striking case of getting
good out of evil.
I am not surprised to find that
riany returned soldiers, simply
through the training they have had in
hospitals, have gone out to take positions better than they ever occupied
An extra privilege is. given to mm
who arc so incapacitated that lhcy
cannot take up llieir old line of work.
They arc given special training for a
new occupation, in technical colleges
or otherwise. And lhcy arc helped
to choose the occupation most suitable and profitable for them, by the
advice of medical and vocational experts. The cost of the training is
paid for them, and so is even their
maintenance and that of their families, for as long as the training lasls
���and a month longer-
It is an admirable system, and I

The Woman on the Farm Deserves
Conveniences and is Gradually
Getting Them
Never in the history of The. Farmers' Advocate have so many Inquiries
conic to this oflicc regarding water
systems and sewage disposal contrivances for country homes. In this issue is published an article dealing
sewage disposal on the    faru
Much of this information has been
published in these columns on previous occasions, but wc are pleased
to meet the demand for more information on a subject which interests
such a large percentage of our clicn-
tclc- There is a hopeful sign in the
inquiries, Conditions in ihe farm
homes are improving. All too often
the fanner has bought new machinery
and Implements to lighten his work,
forgetting aboul the ceaseless toil of
his wife. Too often, also, has the
barn been a model ofhandiness while
the house was anything hut such.
Many a man had running water iu his
pig pen while the only running waler
in llie house, where his wife toiled
without ceasing, was iu the attic
where the roof leaked and the water
soaked through and spoiled llic paper iu the front room- The woman
on the farm deserves conveniences
and she is gradually getting them.
Running water and sewage disposal
arc important in farm home comfort,
and they are not costly beyond the
reach of the farmer.���-Farmers' Advocate.
The War's Nerve Centre
Vast Nitrate Deposits in Chile Avail,
able to Entente Allies
Iu an area of 350 miles of arid, barren desert in Chile lies the nerve centre of the great war. If an unfriendly power had held control of this desert tract, the war would have ended
long ago with the crushing of the
Entente Allies. It is the famous
Chilean nitrate region.
Wiliam Howard Russell; a famous
English war correspondent, wrolc as
long ago as 18S9: "Without Britisii
control of the sodium .nitrates of
Chile the map of the world would bc
very different today."
Germany now docs not need to depend upon thc Chilean nitrate deposits, for .lie German chemists are
making synthetic nitrogen. However, for six months before the outbreak of the war in 1014 Germany had
been receiving enormous shipments
of sodium nil rate from Chile. It is
estimated, in fact, that Germany had
on hand 1 million tons of nitrate in
August, 1914.
Some engineers say there is enough
nitrate in the Chilean desert to supply the world for tw-o hundred years.
There arc about fifty thousand Chileans employed in the industry. Nothing grows in the region about the ni-
tiate deposits; it is a dead land. To
al! appearances the Chilean nitrate
towns are like the old time Western
American mining camps. A great
deal of liquor is consumed in the districts and consequently there is considerable lawlessness.
North and Harvey, two British adventurers, originally owned the nitrate concessions, but now the Chilean government controls most of the
valuable tract. Chile fought a war
with Peru for the northernmost part
of the nitrate beds and won. The
British, through their financial
strength, exercise thc greatest control of any foreign power ovcr the
fields, though three German brokerage houses wcrc big producers before
thc war.

Count Keventlow's Language
Count Revcntlow is irrespressible.
"This is what he says about the
Uniled States, "A great nation without an army to smash a highway
robber, a great people who builds
ships to run them on the rocks." In
one of his most vituperative passages, in .his latest personal appeal to
the German nation to have confidence in the Divine Word of their
War Lord, he adds: "The bluffing
Briton always whines when he sees
that he is to be beaten. He knows
that we have struck terror into his
heart by our daring submarine war
ships."    Fancy thai!

Newfoundland's fish exporter's arc

The unpopularity of the Russo*
Japanese war led to an insistent demand from the Libera! and Revolutionary leaders in Russia for a "Con-
slituent Assembly," which should re-
' place the hated bureaucratic regime
by democratic institutions, and tha
Duma was the "sop to public opinion-" It lias had a checkered career,
but, despite the continued opposition
of the Czar and his��� followers, it has
forced itself on the administration,
i-.ntil it has become a vital factor in
the administration of tl.e affairs of

Ils short history has been characterized by Imprisonments oi its leaders of the more radical sections, and

The first Duma wns opened in 1906.
It. lasted only a few days, when it
was dissolved by M- Goremykin, the
leader oi the Czar's government. Tha
house was opened again the following year, and, to soothe the demands

It is openly stated in political
circles that the prohibition question
is dividing the government ranks.
One section led by tlie Premier and

to introduce prohibition until the
end of the war, while the other
camp prefers to deal with the liquor traffic only by further curtailment of hours, abolition of
treating, etc. It would be interesting to learn what Hugh Stewart
is doing in this connection, and we
are sure that a statement from him
will be timely in view of the fact
that the Valley voted " dry."

For the moment there wns no passion in his feelings for the girl, who

gave out a spk" fragrance. Through
thc opening in the private hedge thc
sunshiny lawn beyond showed a little white-clad figure toddling wiih
Uncertain feet.
"Come, my dear," he said, with a
hand irn Dolly's shoulder, "I see
little Susan is looking for you. She
is coming this way."
Dolly made n spasmodic effort to
dry her tears. Half-blindly she let
him lead her down the path, by the
herbaceous border. Susan hnd begun
to emit small sounds of distress,
"Dolly, where are your" 11 was
quite an adventure for Susan to have
sought out Dolly. Apparently she
wns in hnstc. She had pr< bably escaped from ber mother, and wns apprehensive of being caught.
I A sharp note of recall rnmc upon
Susan's track. Susan looked round,
tittered a little cry, ninl stumbled.
Dolly ran to her, picked her ui>, and
covered   her   with   kisses.
The Squire lefl them lor. iher, and
went on to talk to Mrs. Egerton, who
was surveying the scene from an upper window of the house,    with    a
; sour expression on her beautiful lace.

The Squire stood watching her
miserably, wishing he could hnve
borne the grief for her. Now and
again he spoke to her ar though he
soothed a child. At the moment he
had hardly more consciousness about
it than if she had been a child. Hc
had not realized altogether that his
feeling for Dolly Egerton was conic
to be something very different    from

After all the Squire hnd something
'to do to catch his 2:-15 train. He
had carried off Dolly and thc child
and Mrs. Egerton to Silverthorne
and left them there, exacting a promise that they would remain iill hc.
returned by -ihc 5:45, by which train
; Lionel Egerton wns coming home,
That would put out of the question
his seeing Hilary. Just as well; he
was not very anxious to scc Hilary
till lit had sonic satisfactory news of
Lndy South and Margaret. He was
not sure how Hilary would lake it.
He and Margaret had been like
brother and sister. Too close, the
Squire said to himself, for love to
spring up between them, else they
ought to have been lovers.
Airs. Egerton had no objection to
spending the day at Silverthorne
rather than at the New Cottage. The
meals would be much better cooked
and morc daintily served, and, oddl^
enough, the lady, for all her grave,
serious beauty, was not insensible to
such considerations. The comparative poverty of the New Collage
fretted her. She felt herself much
more at home at Ihc Manor, where
she could sit the long golden afternoon through with a novel or lie on
the softest couches if she would, anil
not fear to hear the village beauty in
'the cottage kitchen breaking the
crockery or stumbling over her own
She had assented graciously to the
Squire's suggestion lhat Dolly should
not be allowed to sleep at the Old
Cottage by herself for a while. She
had been very gracious lo the Squire,
especially since lie had become an art
"She need never have slept there,"
she said, "if it was not for her own
odd ways and her attitude about that
horrid old dog. If it had been mine
should have had him put oul of
his misery long ago. I never thought
it was sanitary lor Dolly to have
him in the coltage; hut since she
would have liim 1 did my best to
keep Susan from going llicrc, I do
not mind a cat In the house, but I
think a dog's place is out of doors.
I've taught Leo to think with me; or
at lenst not to think against me.
When we married, Leo wns as bad
about  Keeper ns Dolly."
The Squire was glad that Dolly
had not heard the Bpccch. He
thought he could trust Lionel Egerton il he could nol trust bis wife,
lie would speak to him on the journey down. Meanwhile (here was
something lo be done with which hc
could trust the old gardener at the
Manor  House.
Afler all he only just caught the
2:-l5, and when he reached Chappcll
Place he found that it was Mr. Lang-
ton's hour for seeing patients. He-
was shown into the waiting-room,
where there wcrc half a dozen people before him. There was nothing
to do but await his turn with what
composure he might,
He experienced all the dreariness
oi the doctor's waiting-room, dim
will, the colored pictures in the lower panes of the window that else
would hnve looked out ou leads. The
window was tightly shut, as it Invariably is iu such places. There
was a woolly plush cloth on thc dining table, on which lay the pictorial
papers of sonic weeks back, an illustrated guide-book, a book of
photographs, and one or two sixpenny novels. Plainly Mr. Langton
did not keep his own rending for the
J wailing room.
Hc sat down on a slippery leather
couch by the wall. Though there
were several people in lhe room,
llicrc was a silence only broken by
the ticking of the clock.
The place got on his nerves. He
began to wonder what the oilier
wailing people about him had to tell
the doctor. There was a smell of
disinfectants, of antiseptics   In    the
mum. He remembered his hospital
days. His soldiering days. How far
away they wcrel lie felt that he
was growing old.
One by one those who wailed with
him were summoned to lhc surgeon's
Consulting room. One by onc they
passed iii and the door closed behind Ihem. At last il was his turn.
He, too, was beckoned by the manservant and passed tlirougli the door
wilic!) was tlie gate of life or death
to many who took thai way.
The surgeon was bending ovcr his
rase book, writing some observations
when lhc Squire came ill. He looked
up. The light wus strong in the
room despite lhc blinds half way
down, alniosl meeting the brise-bise
curtains below. Mr. Langton recognized his visitor.
"Ah," be said, "you do not come
to consult me professionally. Won't
you lake a seat?"
"I must apologize for coming in
tllis way���intruding on lime which
must be valuable." The Squire spoke
stiffly, and remained standing, "I
meant to have called earlier in the
"Don't apologize. I should have
been at the hospital or visiting patients at another hour. 1 am only
afraid you may have had to wait."
He find sat down with something of
a weary air.
He leant back in his chair and
wailed for the Squire to speak. He
looked what he was in his profession,
al sail of solemn black. It became,
him. Ccrvasc Langton was one of
those men who, being plain-looking,
pass for handsome, especially with
women. His clean-shaven face, with
the commanding mouth, the searching eyes, was of the kind to inspire
confidence in nervous patients. He
stood up after a pause with an air of
saying that since his visitor would
not sit he would not. The two tall
men  faced  each  other in  the    room

the advantages Western Canada offers to settlers. The officials hope to

The Immense Strides Made by    the
Dominion During the Past
Fifty Years
Mr. Frank Yeigh's 5,000 facts
about Canada, always a valuable publication, seems particularly timely in
the year of the jubilee anniversary of
confederation, Out progress in fifty
years may be illustrated by a few
figures. Population hns increased
fiom less than three and a half millions to eight millions, as estimated.
Postollice savings deposits have increased from less than a quarter of a
million to forty millions. Trade is
more than ten times as great as at
confederation Railway mileage i.s
sixteen limes as great. Wheat cx-
lorts have increased sixty limes,
manufactures have increased live
times. All this, of course, refers to
material growth. Many things cannot be expressed iu figures-
Yet without this material growth
Canada might have been a source of
v. i akuess and anxiety lo the rest oi
lhc empire, instead of a source of
confidence and strength, Education,
political development, all the signs
of a high civilization will be observed by those who rend lhe history of
hulf u century of United Canada,

Their Dangerous Enemy
Germans Admit That England's

Kitchener coined the phrase "For
England the war will only begin in
1916," wc smiled at him, since wc
believed that long before then wc
should have resumed our peaceful oc-
cupations. But in thc meantime wi
had to learn that wc gravely underestimated the English as a nation- We
know now that our real enemy sits
upon the islands, and that he will
ruthlessly employ every means to

The Horse's Shoulders
When the spring work begins it is
high time to give the horse's shoulders proper attention, To work aj
horse with a sore shoulder is barbarous. Thc collar should lit so that onc
can easily get the band between thc
bottom of it and the horse's throat.
If it is too large it will bc sure lo
make the neck sore, and if too small
it will choke when the horse pulls.
Never use a pad under a collar so as
lo make it lit; a pad keeps all air
out from under the collar and the
shoulders-soon scald in hot wcalher.
'1 he first thing to do -when going to
work a colt is lo see whether there
