The Czar's Valedictory
Crimes of Germany
Can Never Livo Down Disgrace of
Her Acts
The history of tho. war may he (or.
gotten, tlu- terrible stories told hy
thc commissions that investigated the
crimes committed in Belgium may
pass from memory, hm the slory of
Germany's crimes will live forever
In the painting ami cartoons of the
artists who havc depicted them,
Germany never can live down the
disgrace of her deeds, for these
gnat cartoons have (omul permanent places in the picture galleries of
Europe. They will hang there us a
constant reminder of the nation that
emerged a barbarian llirougli its thin
veil  of   civilization'     As   long  as   Ihc
great galleries stand, Germany must
face the disgrace. Can they ever
again laud their kultur?
And, while artists of Holland and
thc United States, as will as those
of the entente countries, are picturing thc deeds committed in the name
of Germany no great artist has arisen
to prevent a pictorial defence for the
Kaiser, This is one. phase of thc war
in which Germany lias no defence.
And the punishment will continue
longer than the lives of those who
penetrated thc horrible clinics.���From

To Raise Serbian Regiment
Recruiting Campaign Throughout the
Dominion for Serbians
Something new in Canadian military circles will be witnessed .".t
Camp Sussex, the central training
camp for New Brunswick, this summer if plans now announced work

The military authorities havc decided to open a recruiting campaign
throughout the Dominion for Serbians, and it is anticipated that from
1,000 to 1,500 men of this race will ba
enlisted during thc spring and summer of 1917. As the recruits arc signed on, lhcy will be sent direct to Sus-'
sex to receive, their military training.
Although they will bc recruited by
the Canadian authorities, the Serbians will not become members of the
Canadian Expeditionary Force, but
will be. sent forward lo aid their fellows iu thc task of redeeming their
native counlry from the liulgar invaders-
"Eddie," said mother sternly, "yolt

It is Also Regarded ns Vital lo tlie Empire that tho Natural
Resources he Safeguarded Irom any Pressure Which a Foreign
Power Might Exercise lo Secure Control of Raw Materials
How Rasputin Worked It
The final report of the Dominions'
Royal Commission sels forth numerous conclusions anil recommend.i-
t'ous which il brings to the notice of
the imperial and dominions' governments,
It declares, regarding the scientific
development of natural resources,
that it is vital the Empire be placed
iu a position enabling it to resist
any pressure which a foreign power,
or a group of powers, could exercise
in time of peace or war through control of cs_s**itial raw materials ami
It recommends that a complete
survey should accordingly bc made
cf the relation between empire production and empire requirements of
such materials'
Willi reference to such materials
aud commodities as arc mainly produced and controlled outside of the
Empire, such as cotton, petroleum,
nitrates and potash, tlie most careful
inquiry is needed regarding the possibility oi new sources of supply or
the finding of substitutes within the
Empire. Survey aud investigation in
this respect should bc entrusted to
the new imperial development board,
which should work through existing
departments in thc Uniled Kingdom
and self-governing dominions and
local scientific departments and thc
Imperial Institute for India, the

evening. Gavotte, by eight girls,
four representing the male sex. A
gavotte is a dance performed after
the Minuet style, "everything is
done sedately," The dresses wen
of the Victorian period, powderec
wigs, stately and slow movement;
to music. These children certainly did reflect great credit upon
their teacher, Mrs, Laban, We
honestly think a better number

A verp good number,
II Radford's song, "Since I have
had a go at the Dumb Bells." sung
iu his usual happy style. Tableau
"Bluebeard" This number in our
opinion took some beating, and
was realistic to a degree. Everyone in the audience must have
known all about the Mormon Bluebeard. From our position we
could not see Bluebeard himself,
but we havc since been told that it
was Mrs. Laban; The heads of
the murdered wives apparently
hanging bv their hair, the absence
of the least little bit of movement
from any of the performers and the
deathlikestihies3 in the air accounted for the convulsive sobs -from
two or three ���sympathetic  children

The Squire found himself arraigned. There was suffering in thc eyes
that met bis���suffering and defiance.
"1 can tell you nothing lhat may
lead her husband to discover her
place of refuge. If it is any consolation to you lo know she is many
miles from here. 1 do not scc her

had done, he had not had much joy
of il.
"I hope," be said, iu a voice suddenly grown gentle, "that if you feel
biter on you are sale in giving me
the secret oi Lady South's hiding

with me at Silverthorne Manor. 1
think Margaret should send some

had extended and shook it warmly.
"I believe you would have done
whal I have done if il had come
vour way," he said.
"I believe I should," said the
Squire, and departed tlirougli the
door into thc hall by which the patients who had seen Mr. l.anglcin
wenl away, giving the impression to
those who wailed of an eternal
stream of patients passing inlo the
consulting room, never lo  return.
After all lhc interview had been
not so long, lie found himself with
more llian an hour in hand before
tbe departure of the 5:45 from Victoria. There was an earlier train he
could catch at 4:35, While he hesitated a.s lo whether to hike it or not,
a passing cab pulled up hopefully -
a hansom. He had sympathy with
the hansom drivers, who were being
ousted by the taxi-cabs.
"Poor devil I" bo said to himself,
aud got in; the thing had been decided for him,
At Silverdale station no vehicle
availed him, since ho was not ex
pected for moro than an hour. Ho
said lo himself that ho would walk
lo Silverthorne and drive back in
lime to pick up Lionel ligcrton at
the next train. 1 le would see Pritchard on llle way and tell him the
result of Iiis visil lo Langton, Between them they must assert their
belief in Lady South's having a perfectly legitimate reason for her absence from home, assert it so strongly that it must create a public opinion against the. easy and evil interpretation lhal had been put upon the
matter- Hc wondered whether he
would be able lo make Pritchard see
thc matter as he had seen it, in Ihe
light of revelation that had broken
on him from Langton's face.
Something came into his head���u
judge's charge to a jury: "Wc must
believe as men of the world." Oh,
infernal I It worried him like the
buzzing of a blue-bottle fly. Men of
the world! Why, if men of the world
were to believe, only evil because they
were men of the world, lhe sooner
lho world was wiped out the belter.
He was an old-fashioned reader oi
poets, of memoirists, of essayists- He
very seldom read a novel. He cared
for few modern poets. Among thc.
few was Browning. "The Ring and
lhe Book" had been in his mind since
bis interview with Langton- Why, he
said to himself, those were men of
llie world who tillered and .lid their
snilcs behind Iheir bands while Cap-
onsachi told his story.
Hc had left the village behind, and
was swinging along by his own park
wall. The wall was very old, and at:
sonic previous time it had been buttressed. Here and there a bit of thc
buttress*-had broken away
A big sIoik had fallen from the top
of the wall, lie made a mental note
to have il attended to, went on, and
suddenly turned back. He bad remembered lhal inside thc wall, close
a. band, was Mrs. Bartlett's cottage-
If he could drop over thc wall, it
would save him a long detour. If he
could not, there would be no lime to
see Mrs. Bartlctt today- Tomorrow
be thought he would run up 'to sec
Hilary and have a talk with him.
Hilary must know what bc knew.
He looked up and down the road.
There was no one in sight to ree thc
Squire crossing the wall inlo his own
orchard. The fallen stone' had carried the glass with it- It was quite
an easy thing to scramble over. The
cherries were just rcddeninfe_4n the
orchard, Hc wondered if any of lhe
Silverdale urchins would taste them
this year. He had sometimes thought
it wise to ignore lhc fact that he hail
no cherries iu the lower orchard, ami
to bc unaware of the suggestion of
patched breeches that met his eye on
every side where a boy might be as
he passed through the village
He gol over ensily, wondering how
long it was since he hail done such a
thing. He sprang down within a few
yards of Mrs. Bartlett's door.
Apparently she had been coming
out of ber lodge, on her way to th.;
well to fill her kettle, when she looked up at thc noise he made- The kettle fell with a clatter from her hand
aud she stared at him with distended
eyes, holding up her hands as though
to push him off.
"I am so sorry I startled you, Mrs.
Bartlctt," he said penitently. "I
ought not to havc done it; but it is
such a long way round that I was
templed to evade it by coming over
the wall. 'Ihere is a stone otll, which
made it easy-"

Outside Civilization's Rule
The End of the House of Hohenzol-
Iern Is Clearly in Sight
In tbe interests of the German
State and people it is necessary that
some oilier than a Hohcnzollern
ahotild be tbe recognized head. The
House, of Hohcnzollern haa a dark
record of crimes against the public
Jieace, against the rights and the
freedom of other states. Its plots arc
too deep, too farsceing, too dangerous to bc longer put up with. It
sought lo place a Hohenzollern upon
the throne of Spain; it did extend
its controlling influence to the
thrones of Greece, Bulgaria and Roir-
jnania- The civilized and peaceful nations of the world havc other and
more profitable occupations than
watching forever the machinations of
the Hohcnzollcrns and guarding
themselves against deadly perils from
that quarter. And the immeasurable,
Inexpiable will fervently hope, thc
last, imperial representative of that
house demands that tlie doom decreed against Napoleon 102 years ago
be entered against him. The Hohcnzollcrns are outside civilization's pale.

The reports that the Germans at
some points are none too well supplied with ammunition suggests that
they may in time bc driven lo such
straits as our own troops in past
wars. For instance, when the English garftson at Nimegttcn in 179-1 ran
out of shot, they fired penny-piece
instead, and the French troops ran
out of their ranks and offered themselves as targets in order to "draw"
the coins and collect them. Onc

gclher as many as 287 of these- Small

Keeping Eggs Fresh
Merchants Should Keep Eggs Out of
Store Windows
It is a common practice at this
season of the year for many retailers
to advertise the increasing egg supply and the rapidly falling prices by
displaying piles of eggs in their sto.tr
windows. Eggs thus exposed in
many cases come under the direct
lays of the sun and arc subjected lo
a temperature behind the plate glass
window of about 100 degrees- The
excessive heat resulting causes serious deterioration, through evaporation accompanied by loss of flavor.
Further, at this time of thc year a
large percentage of the eggs marketed arc fertilized, and as it is common knowledge that a temperature of
70 degrees Is sufficient to start incubation, thc possibility of serious deterioration will readily be seen.
It is good business to advertise, but
window displays of eggs defeat the
aim of the advertiser, in that the resulting deterioration of the eggs
causes dissatisfaction among consumers, and so retards consumption.
Eggs should ho kept in the cleanest,
coolest, driest place in the store, removed from mustiness, foul odors or
other sources of contamination.
