Huge Program
Some 50 Ships Valued at $2.,000.000
For Coast Yards
British Columbia's shipbuilding
program provides for tbe construe1-
tion of some lt/,0U. gross Ions of
commercial shipping, which will have
a total carrying capacity of nearly
185,(1011 Ions. The value of these shins
some 50 In all, is in the neighborhood
of $.'5,1100,00(1.
While this estimate of construe-
lion of tonnage is only approximate,
jt includes practically every ship ot
importance in freight-carrying
There are, however, a number of
small ships being built, such as fishing boats, which have not been included. With these the total gross
lonnage would bc about 150,000.
All the ships forming a pari of the
present program if shipbuilding are
laken in account. Some of the ships
are already in the water, some are
scarcely begun, but the amount of
lonnage given represents definite contracts only.
Consumption of Rice
Greatly Increased
Believed That It Has Direct Relation
to High Price of Wheat
and Potatoes
The increasingly important part
rice is playing in feeding the. people
of llie Uniled. States is shown in figures compiled by llie United Slates
food administration.
The production for 1914-1915
amounted to 1,064,205,000 pounds,
with a per capita consumption of
11.34 pounds. This was increased in
lhc 1916-1917 crop to 1,831,590,000
pounds, wilh a per capita consumption of 17.33 pounds.
The lafge increase in consumption
during the past year undoubtedly lias
direct relation to lhe high price of
potatoes and wheat,
The rice crop of India for Mir past
year showed an increase of 1,255,000

Butter Were Shipped by Denmark and Holland
Hi the total of animal fats used
in Wlii in Denmark lor the manufacture of margarine, 90.9 per cent, was
iiuporiid from the United Stales.
The total Danish production of
margarine in 1916 was 124,781.620
pounds, according t" data received
by tin.- United Slates fund ailiuini>-
l ration, The substitution of this
margarine for butter allowed tlie exportation of all  llu: butler produced,
except  S.6 per cent, much  of  this
exportation going Into Germany,
Holland, also a dairy counlry, In
I9iti produced 31)6,828,000 pounds of
margarine, of which 330,690,000
pi,unds were exported. Of the 1.1,-

to 92,593,200 pounds. How greatly
these exports ivfrr* to Germany's
benefit, can only be surmised,

An Historical Occasion
The first and one of lhe very few
limes in wliicli the Brilish parliament
voluntarily transferred its authority
to the king was in llie remarkable
rase of Major John Baruardi, who
died in Newgale prison, London, 181
years ago. Baruardi, a soldier, was
arrested in 1696 and charged wilh
complicity in a plot to assassinate
King William III. Eight persons
wcrc executed for their part in the
conspiracy, but there was little evidence against Barnard! and five other suspects. Rather llian bring lliciu
to trial or admit them to bail, as
the law provided, parliament authorized tlie imprisonment of the men for
one year, At the expiration of that
period it was extended for another
year. At the expiration of that period it was extended for another year,
ami Ihen for a third, when parliament
passed an act authorizing an act
providing for the confinment of Baruardi and his companions "during His
Majesty's pleasure."

If It Is true that the latitude and
expression of he pacifist are calculated to create a misapprehension in

prolong the war at the expense of
lives and money, is not this average

War lias been Grasped as the One and Only Chance for the
Preservation of their System of Government
f'lilui Root, addressing the confer-
nice of American liar association
delegates at Saratoga Springs recently, likened Germany to a burglar in the bouse.
"There can bs no talk of peace and
security of democracy with tier-
many iu her present position," Mr.
Root said. "If Germany had succeeded in what she slarled out to
do, and had ironic out with her pow-
_'i- unbroKcn, and wn had been unable lo defend our right and had uot
held Germany down in ibe lasl live
months, her heel would have been
on our neck,
"The efieel of our entry into Ibe
���Tar is ihai we have surrendered
some of the liberty we have asserted, Our property must he invested
in war protection, YVc cannot have
free democracy and war, and lhc
result is that if j mi live, in ihe presence of military autocracy you can-
iini make democracy. If you retain
democracy you must kill autocracy.
"Ou' entrance into ibis war has
been grasped at as the one chance
for the preservation Of our system
of government and our independence
an independent court, ami the right
of American manhood to assert individual right against all power, and
continue Ihe free republic which our
fathers handed down to us. Our sue-
' ccssful prosecution of the war is
lhe. only way we can make that
chance successful. W'e are in war,
and the principle for wliicli we liglit
is liberty, independence, and our
American life.
"It has become perfectly evident,"
Mr. Root said, "that this is a conflict between two opposed, and inevitably opposed, systems of governments, of policy, of policies, of
human society. It has become perfectly evident that our war was]
brought on with a purpose to establish a military autocracy. It has become perfectly evident that more
than a generation of careful preparation bad been made for this very
thing, and that the democracies of
the world, rejoicing in peace and
prosperity, in political freedom, and
in individual liberty, were in great
measure and in differing degree unprepared to meet this attack upon
"Slowly they have gathered to the
support of the. principle of their lives
tiie principle upon which they live
against the adverse attack on this
principle, the domination of which
means the dealh of democracy and
the everlasting destruction of the
syslem of individual liberty of which
we. are the JUi_.Ii priests of the bar.
"So long as there exists a great
and powerful military autocracy
which has the purpose to secure
domination by military force, so long
republics, democracies, countries
which preserve individual _ freedom
and individual rights, countries wliicli
subordinate government to freedom,
must be at thc mercy oi autocracy.
As well go lo sleep with a burglar
sitting in your front hall as to talk
about the peace and security of a
democracy with Germany still competent to pursue its career of domination.
"We are in the. fight, and the
slake for wliiclisvc fight is liberty,"
Mr. Root added, "and it is our bar
which stands at the door through
which oppression must enter. It
not so easy for the farmer to sec
there will he a difference in his
crops, or in the sale of them; for
the. manufacturer to sec that anyone will stop wearing clothes or
shoes or using machinery, hut it is
easy for us to see that with the domination of that military syslem that
subordinates the law, lhat makes
the bar but a clog lo an administrative    syslem    of government, and
leaves to the bench no Independence
---it is easy for the lawyer to see that
everything he has contended for   of
individual liberty and llie supremacy
of the   law   ovcr executive power���
will be attacked and destroyed if we(
do not succeed in tllis war."
"Sin Without Trace"
German  Method    of    Covering
Murders at Sea
The German government is reported In press despatches as disclaiming responsibility for   Count   Lux-
burg's plan for sinking neutral and
other merchant vessels, "leaving no
traces," OU the ground lhat the proposal emanated from a single Gcr-
iiian diplomat and was not in facl
adopted by lhe higher authorities.
Two circumstances���aside from the
fact that no official German state-
men can any longer be regarded as
presumptively true���render this explanation eminently unconvincing,
(1) Count Luxburg's matter-of-
course manner of using the concise
phrase "spurlos vcrsenken" strongly
suggests that be was referring to a
practice already familiar to tbe authorities whom he was addressing.
(2) There is abundant evidence,
that il has for some months been a
common German practice to attempt
lo prevent any survivors from escaping from torpedoed vessels. At
the meeting of the International
Conference of Mcrcjiant Seamen in
London in August a report (publish-1
ed in The London Times) was made
showing twelve, known cases during
the months April-July iu which
crews leaving sinking ships in lifeboats were attacked, usually hy gunfire. In four of these cases the ships
w-ere of neutral nationality. Other
instances of the same practice have
since been reported. The case of the
Belgian Prince is the most illuminating example of the art of "spurlos
vcrsenken." Firing on small boats is,
of course, a loose and frequently ineffective method, since it is difficult
to he. sure that all of the crew have
been killed by the fire. The boats,
of thc Belgian Prince, accordingly
were rendered useless, and the crew,
alone could never have sei the stage
i'or il. .Degrees of guilt in such a
case, do not particularly matter. Nor
can the most even handed justice
apportion degrees of suffering. Austria at least has reached the point
where her suffering is greater than
ber guilt. Whoever wins, she loses.
Thus it is that her desire for peace
has grown so keen that she will
make almost any sacrifices to attain
I it. Probably the terms suggested by
I iiie. pope represent ibe minimum of
her concessions. Whether ihey do
or not, she cannot now escape the
fear that a worse thing is to befall.
The onward sweep ot llic Italian
troops has brought her to a lively
realization of her peril. The reported evacuation of .'ricstc hy lhe inhabitants reveals the apprehension
that this sweep cannot be stayed. If
the Italians cauld take Alontc Santo
they ought lo be. able, to take Monte
Ilarinada.    After  lhat   lhe  deluge.
Whether or not Trieste falls,
whether or not Vienna is threatened,
llie military failure of Austria is
fairly complete. Hy nothing short of
a miracle could the Austrian Iroops
resume the offensive. The best they
could hope for would he a lingering
defence, a retirement as costly as
possible lo the enemy. Hut there are
other things to be considered. All
accounts agree that the internal condition of the empire is terrible. It
is doubted if the. people could survive another winter of privation.
There is something akin to despair
among the loyal adherents of Ihe
House of Hapsburg, something akin
to revolution among the Slavic subjects of that house. The revolt in
Bohemia lias been checked, not
ciushed. The government cannot
trust many of its own soldiers to
fight against their brothers in blood.
Resentment at German dictation is
growing among all classes. Austria
has been staunch to her ally, but at
fearful cost. She has been held partly by honor, partly by fear. But the
first motive can weigh little now in
view of the wholly selfish policy
which Germany has pursued toward
her; and the second must weigh
less than it did before Germany herself began to show signs of failing
power. There is every reason why
Austria    should    make,    a    separate

Pigeons for Pershing
Carrier   Pigeons   to   Aid   American
- Army in France
Major-General Pershing, > commanding thc United Slates army in
France, has asked for thousands of
carrier pigeons to assist American
aeroplane observers in sending their
reports and maps of German positions back to headquarters.
All French fortresses for many
years havc had their pigeon lofts.
The employment of birds wilh such
remarkable homing qualities in connection with aeroplanes is new, however. Birds are bred in lofts behind
the French lines and trained to return to these lofts. The aviators
taket he birds-tip, and when far over
the German lines they fasten to the
pigeon's legs any map or report
which they desire, to return quickly
to French headquarters, and the
birds almost invariably get back with
great rapidity. It is said that the
French have even succeeded in Iraiti-
ing pigeons to return to movable
luffs, which follow the lines Ol the
advancing troops, although, of
course, lhe lofts are not moved far
from their original locality.

policy of internal reforms, the satisfaction of the political aspirations
of the non-German races are. the
only alternatives to thc dissolution
of the empire. If Austria was willing to offer the Trentino lo Italy lo
prevent her entrance into the war,
she will quite conceivably be willing
to make greater concessions to bring
peace. The more, she delays the
harder the. task of saving anything
will be. Threatened men live long,
and disintegrating nations show a
remarkable force of cohesion. But
there is a point at which the will as

The document begins by plaintively recording _ the fact that ibe
German front lines are regularly
battered to pieces by our artillery
before the actual battle begins. Power of defensive, it say-, depends on
the possibility of hiding the means
of defense. Trendies, shelters, machine guns emplacements, and batteries once photographed by tbe Anglo-French airmen are doomed to
certain destruction by their artillerv
Under such fire it is hopeless to ar
tempt to repair damage. An entire];
new principle of defense is needed
and the order proceeds to explain.
For Ihe old system of positions
oil which the enemy artillery carr
register and which thc enemy can
therefore destroy there must be one
substituted. A rone of defense organized in depth is recommended towards the rear. This system, with
its defences hidden as much as p"-
sible from the enemy observation

The Squire's
\mdam. Mttrntne. ,*d ' ***.
"That is a very nice, boy, Kilty, a
very nice boy," said Mrs. Lloyd. If
yon hail happened to br a boy in-
Itcad of a girl 1 wouldn't have minded if yon had been just that kind' of
a boy. I don't suppose they'll need
us, so 1 think we'd belter just go
Their figures, indeed, had almost
disappeared before Hilary had got
iiiflicicntly over his surprise at meeting the Squire in these parts to remember that he had been accompanied hy Iwo ladies when he had set
out and that h chad left them somewhat unceremoniously.
He was shocked at the haggard-
ncss of the Squire's face.
There had been half a dozen clues,
or supposed clues, said the Squire,
���tanding and digging absently in the
Bands with his slick; every one had
come to nothing.
"There are ��� moments," he said,
"when ] think I have lost my poor
little girl forever, and then again I
am sure I shall find her. My best
hope lies in Mrs. Bartlett's being
with her. I have a great confidence
in that woman, without very ' much
foundation for it. It is an instinct
I suppose. You see, Hilary, I an.
hampered bv the need for secrecy. 1
dare not bring in lhe police. 1 have
a firm of private detectives working
for inc. They have made up their
minds that Dolly was taken to Paris.
She is somewhere where she cannot
���romniunicate with me. 1 have beer
to Paris and to Cherbourg. I have
conic back again. At Boulogne the
clues have all ended. I have a feeling that here���the right one may be
picked up again."
"I tlioughl her brother was with
"So he was till he was recalled by
thc illness ol lhe child. He is waiting now for any possible news. 1
wonder who it was told that ruffian
where Dolly was to bc found! I
have sometimes thought it might
have been Mrs. F.gerlon. She did
not know of the reason for his' not
being lold, of course."
Hilary said nothing, since if he had
tpoken il would have been to say
that he did not trust Mrs. Egerton,
His good heart ached for the weariness and depression in the Squire's
lace and voice. He would not add
to the trouble by a dark suggestion.
"She will be found. I am certain
of it," he said, by \*ay of comfort.
"People do not disappear like that.
Not, at least, two women, full grown
and normally healthy and intelligent."
The Squire turned and looked at
liim and there was blood in his eyes.
"They do sometimes," he said. "My
God! 1 wish now 1 had strangled that
noisome beast the first time I laid
eyes upon him. I ought to have done
il. 1 swear before heaven that when
I meet him I shall kill him."
���He looked down at his hands and
they worked as though they were in
the throat of his enemy.
"A strange chance,"' said Hilary,
"lliat we should all be here together
in this place, you and I, and Langton.
1 wonder is there anything in it���
any leading and light that brings us
The Squire had not heard him, He
was looking down, absorbed in his
own gloomy thoughts. The fortrcss-
like farm standing half a mile away,
loomed in ihe strange atmosphere of
lhe dunes as though it were close at
hand: and something white showed
high in lhe wall tindir lhe sleep
The Thing in the Wood Shed
The woman who followed Cooper
into the farm house was a queer, excitable looking i-real ure. Once she
might have been pretty. She had a
imall ivory-colored fare, fretted with
Innumerable lines. Her eyes were
very briglil���over bright. Her hair,
under the peasant's cap, had a fly-
awav lightness.
"She is deaf and dumb," id
Cooper. "She will take her or., is
��� only from me. Vou need not plot to
get her on your side."'
He talked to the woman hy the
finger alphabet and she seemed to
read his lingers ill a way that showed
she possessed some intelligence, despite lier madness. She nodded several limes when he had finished, and
then hurried nut of tiie. room, making a queer noise, to herself.
Cooper smiled unpleasantly, glancing at Mrs. Bartlett.
"This is a queer household for a
man like me," he said. "A mad woman���a woman so diabolically ugly
lhal she dare nol show her face, and
- 1 wonder if pretty Dolly is worth
it! Hut to he sure she is. They always were worth it to uie while lhe
rhase was on, whatever happened afterwards. But���all lhe same, I'm going to be a reformed character when
ll've married Dully. Il is about time
I was settling down, liow do you
ihink I'll adorn the domestic sphere
- hey?"
He broke off abruptly and stared
at her.
"I don't know why it is," he said,
"thai I talk to you as though you
knew all about me. 1 find myself doing il and it is a queer thing."
She had come downstairs for something for Dolly. Now she took the
thing she required and went away
without speaking. The man had
shown no desire at all to converse
with Dolly. Indeed he showed a
quite unexpected consideration for
her, when, on the morning of the
second day, meeting Mrs. Bartlett on
the stairs,.he "had remarked that he
was going to be absent and that Mrs.
Bartlett had better induce her young
lady to go out of doors in the courtyard for a while.
"I'm sorry I cannot give her a
wider freld yet," he said. "She shall
have the world before her when she
marries me. There is nothing I cannot do when the incentive is strong
enough. She will forgive me for the
way I have taken to gain her. It
was the only way, as she was going
to marry that fellow Mcyrick. Most
women will forgive anything done
for love of them.    I ought to know."
Hc went off after breakfast. From
tlie upper window of the farm house
they saw him ge. Dolly had wept
the day before. Today she was
stronger. She had spent the morning
on her knees. Coming into the room
of the red damask, Mrs. Bartlett
found her just rising from her knees
wef-eyed but with a light on her
"I have put myself into the hands
of God," she said. "He will send His
angels to keep guard ovcr me. I am
not afraid."
"You need not be afraid, love,"
Mrs. Bartlett said. She had come to
treat Dolly with a compassionate and
motherly tenderness. "No harm shall
come to you. If needs be I shall protect you.   You may be sure of that."
"I should like to go out," said Dolly.   '"I hate this house."
"You must come out into the sun.
Do you think you could do a bit of
gardening, love, as there is no great
space to walk about in? You told
me you loved gardening so much���"
"Oh, yes, it is wonderful to see the
things come up. You feel as though
you had made them. But, even if I
had seeds to low there would be no
use in sowing them here. It is an
ill-omened place. There is a chill in
the rooms. I heard a sound in the
night like an old man coughing and
groaning. 'Mon Dieul' I thought he
said, 'Hclas, mon Dim, que jesouf-
"A dream, my pet, my dear���you
have had enough to unhinge you.
Come out in the sun."
They went downstairs. The. little
mad woman Cooper had spoken of as
Margot was whisking eggs in a basin. She looked up at them, not unfriendly, nodding her head.
They went outside and explored
the barns and cowsheds and stables
and granaries. All were empty,
dutsy, and bare. High up in a loft
under the roof Ihey found a space
where a brick had been removed to
admit liglit and air. Finding a broken chair to stand upon they could
see a distant bit of the road and an
oblong, sky. The opening was too
high up and too narrow for more.
When  they  had  finished  the    exploration  they  went  back    to      Ihel
courtyard.    There  was a  bush  hear-
ing a few beautiful while roses in the I
bed of the statue of St.  Rocll,    The
bush was all but choked with weeds. I
"Don't the roses look like drown-1
ing hands stretched out ill a last cry
I'or help?" said Dolly. "Let us find
something in the way of a tool and
save them. Even here God sends
His  mercy with the roses."
Having found some rusty tools she
set to with a will, Mrs. Bartlett helping her. They had made a clear
space around the rose buds, when
Dolly looked up, an illumination in
her  face.
"We can send messages to the outer world by that opening in the loft,"
she said.
'.'You forget that no one comes
near here."

Manitoba Adapted
For Stock Raising
Many Varieties of Live Stock Feed
Grown in Manitoba
The Manitoba department of agriculture has jusl issued an interesting
booklet on Live Slock liaising from
which the following extract dealing
with the many varieties of live stock
feed grown in that province, has been
The naturally rirh Manitoba soil
yields an abundant growth of wild
forage plants of many kinds. These
possess uncommon natural fattening
qualities and Manitoba cattle grazing
on Ihem require much less finishing
than is necessary in almost any other part of the continent. Kentucky
Blue Grass grows in profusion and
here as In its native state it is worthy
of the name of the king of pasture
grasses, A near relative, known as
Canadian Blue Grass, is also to he
found everywhere. Knot Koot Grass,
Wild Timothy and the well-known
Red Top also grow In profusion, also
the slender wheal, grass now commonly known iu Manitoba as West
em Rye Grass. There is also the
Western Wheat Grass, commonly
known as Blue-joint, which is of unusual hardiness.
For hay purposes and winter feeding, wild grasses are abundant ill all
parts of the province and furnish the
whole hay crop for thousands of
Manitoba farmers. Western Rye-
Grass is probably the best of these
and grows to perfection under alniosl
any conditions. The Western Rye
Grass, sown alone, has yielded at the
rate of 6,800 pounds to the acre. Un-.
dei- cultivation it grows easily aiid
quickly, seeds rcadiiy, matures quickly and cures perfectly. It has another big advantage, being easily got
rid of from land required for other
purposes. Its feeding value has
proved a big surprise to many American farmers who came to this country knowing little, if anything, of
wild grasses in the thickly settled
districts from which they came.
Among the cultivated grasses
which are giving fine satisfaction in
Manitoba are timothy, awuless brome
grass and red top, meadow fresque
and tall oat grass. The reason for
this is simple. To begin with, they
have a soil which is unequalled anywhere in richness, they gel the early
spring starting rains as soon as the
winter snow has gone, and the frozen
moisture coming up when thc hot
sun comes. But most important is
the long hours of clear sunlight,
which makes for rapid full growth.
Clovers and other leguminous
.plants are also proving the exceeding fertility of Manitoba soil, and
their adaptability to Manitoba conditions. It has been proved In most
parts of the province that the soil is
particularly adapted for alfalfa. Experiments at Brandon have shown an
average crop of over five tons to the
acre, and farmers from all over the
province testify to the success they
have had with it. Broad red clover
and alsike are also much grown by
good farmers, and like every other
fodder, yield fine crops.
The large crops of oals and barley that can bc grown on Manitoba
land form one of the great natural
advantages of the province for the
raising of beef cattle and feed stock
of every kind, as well as for dairying. A mixture of oats, barley and
alfalfa makes an ideal feed which is
very popular, and is fed by many of
the most successful farmers in the
Manitoba oats have a feeding value
superior to oats grown almost anywhere else, mainly because of their
exceedingly light hull and plunibness
of kernel. They weigh more to lhe
measured bushel than oats grown in
any of the stales. The average weight
of Manitoba oats is thirty-eight
pounds to the bushel, and oats weighing forly pounds and over are often
to be seen. In the middle western
States the average weight of oats is
from thirty to thirty-four pounds.
The difference in feeding value    will
hc rcadiiy understood hy nny pvacti
cal fanner or slock man.
'I'he average yield of oats in Manitoba in the lasl ten years, hiking the
poor years wilh the' good and good
farming wilh poor farming, lias been
ovcr thirty-eight bushels lo lhc acre.
That is the average, hut crops of
sixty bushels lire very common, crops
of seventy-five lo eighty bushels nre
quite frequent, while a crop of one
hundred bushels or even mon- is nol
considered any greal novelty.
What hns been said of " oats is
equally true of barley. Manitoba
barley is very light hulled, weighs
very heavy, uml analysis shows it to
contain food values ilr.it can hardly
be equalled anywhere else.
Storing Vegetables
For tbe Winter
Valuable  Hints for   Keeping   Ve_e-
tables Fresh During  Winter
With lhe food problem so acute il
in important thai every vegetable
should be stored, This applies not
only to ripened vegetables, Inn to immature cabbage, cauliflower, eic,
which can be stored and used as
green feed lor Inns during lhe winter months when other green situ, is
noi available,
There are j few general principles
in storing which haw in !>,��� remembered, namely: ll) Protection (rom
frost; (2) keeping them cool in order
to prevent decay; (3) keeping them
relatively moist, in order lo prevent
excessive, evaporation and wilting;
(4) avoid a wel and stagnant atmosphere, as ihis is likely to engender
rot, particularly when the temperature is loo high; (..) protect from
heating, for healing is the natural result of lhe ac ���tuuulation of much
fresh vegetable matter.
It is well lo store roots in moist
sand. Beets, carrots and parsnips
will keep all winter without withering
if the temperature is kept low enough
to prevent sprouting. Others may be
kept in dry, cool places. Cabbage
and cauliflower may be pulled entire
and slood in wet. sand, or the heads
may be removed, wrapped separately
in paper, and placed in a cool cellar.
Celery and Brussels sprouts are packed lightly together, upright, iu sand.
This sand should bc kept moist, hut
never allow water to get onto the
celery leaves, as ml will probably
It will be noted thai in every instance a cool cellar is specified. This
is not possible where a furnace is in
the same compartment. Divide lhe
cellar into two part:*���one for the
furnace and one fm- lhe vegetables.
Keep the window in the vegetable
cellar open as laic as it is safe to do
so. At all times, however, see. that
there is plenty of fresh air and keep
tin- temperature down.���W.
Canada's Lumber Industry
The report upon the production of
lumber, lath and shingles in Canada
for the year 1916, prepared by the
forestry branch of the department of
the interior, will give statistics of
production hy 2,009 mills operating
in Canada during the calendar year
1916. The number of mills reporting
decreased hy 630 ns compared with
1915. The value of ihc lumber, lath
and shingle output for 1916 was as
follows: Lumber. $58,365,349; lath,
$1,743,9-10; shingles, $5,962,933; total
Canada cut in 1916 3,490,550 feet
board measure of lumber, a decrease
of 9.2 per cent. aS compared with
The cut decreased in all the eastern provinces, and increased in all
lhe western provinces as compared
with 1915, British Columbia making
the. most pronounced gain.

About nine million acres out of -
total ��f 210 million acres in Quebec
province are under agricultural development. The chief crop of the
remaining 200 million acres is and
will always be timber for the reason
that the soil is unfitted for tillage.
More than two-thirds of Uie technical foresters in Canada in 1914
have seen military service at the
front. The enlistment of forest rangers has likewise been heavy.
The use of hydro-aeroplanes foi
detection of forest fires is being considered by certain governmental and
private inlerest.-', in Canada.
Jn order to save for llie Indians of
Canada their large timber holdings
against loss by forest, tires, the Indian department at Ottawa is obliging licensees to pilo .in I burn their
slash nfler taking the I ,g. out of the
woods. The precaution will save
numerous had fires.
While Canada spends nboul fotii
millions yearly in studying agric.il
tural problems, only ;i trifling sum
has been thus far on the study ol
forest problems. More than two-
thirds of the whole of Canada i��
better adapted for tree growing than
anything else and will pay profits ac.
cording to the scientific care bestowed on it.
Co-operative Marketing of Poultry
In order lo put the marketing of
poultry on a good basis, two poullry
killing stations have, been established in Saskatchewan, one at Regina
and onc at Saskatoon, At these stations .experts supervise the killing,
plucking, grading and packing of
the birds and advance payments are
made to the senders in accordance
with the grade, the final payment 61
lhe balance being made when sales
have been made. 'The system of
gathering poultry in fairly large
quantities and placing Ihem on lhe
market llirougli these stations give-
the farmers a belter chance of disposing of their fowl nl the llighes'

The "Oversea Tongue"
The Numerous Dialects as Found in
My comment on tiie English spok-
,n by oversea troops brings me an
i..(cresting letter from a Canadian
Scot. "Canada," he points out, "is a
vast melting-pot of all nationalities,
and as a rule these different races,
when tlicy conic to the counlry, live
in communities, from wliicli tlicy
gradually drift away���1 speak, of
course, of those settling on lhe land.
The native Canadian never gives the
subject a thought, as it applies to
all, from the Galician to the Scot;
but since your question refers to the
latter, let us consider him a moment.
and we will see that he docs not always remain "Scotch." Go lo Glengarry in Ontario, and you will find
it more Scotch than many parts of
Scotland. Gaelic is freely spoken In
some, districts, and many of the older people speak indifferent English.
Parts of Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, a thousand miles east,
are equally "Scotch." Visit the counlry oil cither side of the St. Lawrence
river between Quebec City and the
Gulf, and you wil! find Hacdonalds,
Macpllcrsons, MacGrcgors, Campbells and Gordons and very few of
Ihein can converse in anything but

Make Discovery
Lead   Caps  Found  in Shipment   of
Nails to Sweden
Accidental discovery that wire nails
in a consignment for Sweden were
covered with lead caps caused the
customs authorities to hold up a
shipment of 300 eases of the nails.
The smashing of one of the cases
by a passing truck on a Brooklyn
pier led to the discovery. It was
said there was enough lead on each
nail for the manufacture of a rifle
bullet, and that the application for
shipping license contained no mention of the lead, simply stating that
the case contained wire nails.
The cases had becn standing   on a
dock for   about   three weeks.    The
investigation will seek to   determine
| whether thc lead was placed on the
j nails as a subterfuge to get needed
! war material to Germany or whether
I it was there for some legitimate pur-
1 pose.    The  lead caps arc described
' as filling loosely and easily   removable.

One Creamery Manufactures 3,000,000

Edmonton, the capital city of Alberta, possesses in the Edmonton
Cily Dairy, onc of the largest, if not
the largest creamery in Canada. Its
output of butler last year reached
three million pounds, which is approximately one-third of the total
output of the creamery butter of the
province. It also manufactured about
200,000 pounds of cheese. This Is a
new branch of its industry, a begin*
ning having been made in this Tine
three years ago, but continual progress is being maintained, nnd ft Is
expected that this year's output will
be double that of last year. There Is
a big local demand for all the cheese
manufactured by thc creamery, and
any surplus is eagerly sought after

The nerve system is the governing
system of the whole body, controlling the heart, lungs, digestion and
brain; so it is not surprising that
nervous disturbances should cause
acute distress. The first stages of
nervous debility arc noted by irritability and restlessness, in which
the victims seem to bc oppressed by
their nerves. The matter requires
immediate attention, for nothing but
suitable treatment will prevent a
complete breakdown. The victim,
however, need not despair for even
severe nervous disorders may be
cured by improving the condition of
the blood. It is because Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills actually make new. rich
blood that this medicine has cured
extreme nervous disorders after all
other treatment had failed. The nerves thrive on the new blood made
by these pills; the appetite improves,
digestion is better, sleeplessness no
longer troubles the former nerve
shattered victim, and life generally
takes on a cheerful aspect. Every
sufferer from nerve troubles, no matter how slight, should lose no time
in giving Dr. Williams' Pink I'ills a
fair trial, thus regaining Iheir old-
time health and comfort.
You can get Dr. Williams' Pink-
Pills through any dealer In medicine,
or by mail at 50 cents a box or six
boxes for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co., Brockvllle, Oni.

Impurities of the Blood Counteracted.���Impurities in the blood come
from defects in the action of the

and unsightly blotches on the skin.
They must be treated inwardly, and
for this purpose there is no more ef-
j fective compound to bc used than

act directly on thc liver and by setting up healthy processes have a
beneficial effect upon the blood, so
thai  impurities are eliminated.
To Avoid Waste
Food Controller Offers Some Timely
The food controller is informed
that avoidable waste of valuable orchard and garden products is taking
place in many towns and villages of
In order to prevent this waste an
appeal is made to the mayors,
reeves and officers of the respective
municipalities lo take immediate
slcps to conserve such products as
cannot be made use of by- the producers or disposed of tlirougli the
usual channels.
To accomplish this object the following suggestions arc made:
1. Citizens are urged (a) lo use
every means in their power to conserve for their own use their full
requirements of fruits and vegetables;
(b) to dispose of any surplus tlicy
may have through the usual channels of trade, or turn such surplus
ovcr to a local conservation committee.
2. That the head of every municipality organized from representatives of the various local societies,
organizations and religious dcjjpmin-
ations, a civic conservation committee to take charge of the assembling
of all surplus orchard    and    garden
firoducts that may'be donated by the
ndivldual citiz.ns by enlisting the
co-operation of the public and high
school teachers, utilizing parties organized from amongst the pupils, aided by conveyances donated for the
purpose by the citizens.
3. That the various conservation
committees make immediate and
adequate arrangements for the safe
storing of all such surplus products
Until such time as they can be disposed of to the various charitable organizations or soldiers' homes or sold
by such committee to those unable
to purhrase at regular prices, or disposed of through the regular trade
channels and the proceeds of all
such sales donated to the Red Cross
or similar organizations as the discretion of the committee shall direct.
It is urged that the widest possible publicity be given to this appeal and the earnest co-operation of
alt citlseni enlisted in its behalf.
