(Continual.)
Hilary led ni�� unconsciously to
what the Squire had to lell liim about
the Souths. Hc had asko.d lirst for
the Egcrtons, talking of Dolly with
a slightly conscious air, as though hc
were a little in love-with her. It irritated lhc Squin-, who was never ir-
rltable, especially with Hilary. Me
had a feeling that Dolly was somehow the centre oi a tragedy. At another time ho would only havc
laughed, Hilary was incurably sentimental���always in and out of love.
It never seemed to affect his happiness or his digestion,
He answered curtly, to the. golden
youth's amazement, Hilary said
nothing, only glanced at his cousin's
profile in the half-light, wondering
What had put him out. He hud heen
so invariably sweet-tempered in lltl-
dry's experience of him,
"After all," the boy went on, "1 am
more concerned with Margaret. Why
doesn't she write to mc? I've written to her; but she has.-not answered
tne. What is happening about the
Souths?"
The Squire lold him, He was very
glad die news was no worse to tell.
He himself had Implicitly accepted
Mr. Langton's explanation, The
Souths were lying perdus for a time
���to escape old Gilbert's brutality,
and give, the poor woman a chance
of having her hcallh patched up. It
iv.s not so dreadful to tell.
He had not anticipated hose Hilary
would lake the laic of Margaret's
Ill-treatment, lie was surprised nt
the boy's passion. Hilary raged and
almost sobbed. Only the consciousness of the groups sitting at the
other tables kept his emotion under
control.
"Her poor little arms," hc said.
"I remember now how she winced
and cried out when 1 clasped her
wrists. To think 1 should not have
known!"
The Squire left, liim to his emotions. Trains will not wait for belated travellers, and he must get the
8:15. He had a terror lest something dreadful might happen in his
absence. As lie stood up and went
in search of his waiter he was wondering what Hilary would think if
he knew how the Souths hail retreated into the background of his life.!
He remembered Langton's firm
lips. A man to guard and keep die
women he cared for. While hc had
talked to Hilary he had had a vague
sense of terror of he knew not what
that might bc happening in his absence to his own sweetheart, his
jroor, pretty Dully, who had none to
guard her but he.
Hilary drove, wilh him to Ihe station; it was not very far. 'I'he Squire
was thinking his own thoughts as
they drove along thc Embankment to
Westminster Biiilge, with the lighted clock-tower high in thc sky. Hilary had apparently forgotten his
evening parties lie was wondering
if he should find Mr- Langton al
heme it he wcrc to take the taxi on.
Very likely, the Squire thought, unless I angl in i as dining out or al
i is club, Hi had a vague passing
v onder as to how Langton would]
receive the boy, who seemed lo think;
lhat lie had onlj   lo ask for Margar-
t'a addn ss lo ; . given it.
But he was loo much occupied
villi his own thoughts to heed what
Hilary was saying, beyond a feeling
of wonder lhat the youngslcr seem-
,,;   to      il _   Ire  had  a  right,

lie had picked up a number of
papers rasiirilly from ilr- limrkslall al
Victoria, just before ii was closed,
Lionel Egerton often grumbled all
ihe. absence of a bookstall from Silverdale station, They would make
his excuse for coming if any were
necessary, Perhaps none ivas needed, lie had come ami gone pretty
v.rll as he would of late.
lir knocked al the door ol tlie
New Collage. Through the little
window of bottle-ended glass at the
right-hand side of the porch he
caught sight of a blurred blue and
green which must hc Mrs. J'.ger-
Imi's gown. Slur always dressed for
dinner, however simple the meal was,
although her husband sat down in his
tweeds or flannels or whatever he
chanced to bo wearing.
The door opened lo his knock. It
was Lionel Egerton who opened it.
He and Mrs. Egerton were the sole
occupants of thc room. No Dolly 1
I'or some reason he could nut explain, his heart sank, heavy as lead.
He said to himself thai he had known
she would not bc there. He had
known it all thc time.
He was no good at dissimulation,
lie could not sit down and talk indifferently, waiting for Dolly to come
in from the other part of the bouse.
Of course she was iu thc house.
1'iobably with the baby upstairs, or
in the kitchen doing something or
other, or in the dining-room.
He laid down the papers on the
little tabic by Mrs, Egcrton's side,
ll was loo late to stay, he said, wilh
that curious new uneasiness upon
him. There was a book for Miss
Egerton, a new volume of poems
about which hc had heard her express
curiosity.
"Oh, Dolly," said Mrs. Egerton.
"She has deserted us again and gone
back to her cottage,"
"She is working at some sketches
of Susan for a Christinas number.
Awfully jolly things, you must scc
them. She prefers her lonliness when
she is busy," put in Lionel Egerton.
"To our society," said Mis. Egerton with a little laugh.
"Oh, come, Louise," said Lionel
Egerton rather shamefacedly. "Poor
Dolly. I fear she thinks herself in
the way here, with Darby and Joan.
She would never be that, poor little |
girl, but she's sensitive. I'll come
ovcr with you to thc eoltage, Mcyrick. She'll be pleased at your remembering her; it's very kind of
you."
"Please don't go, .Leo," Mrs. Egerton put iu hastily. "Vou know I
don't like, to be left alone at night."
"Oh, I forgot, Louise has a nervous lit. Just imagine, Mcyrick, she's
in a funk about old Keeper. She
won't look out of thc staircase window as she goes up to hed lest she
should scc his ghost out there in the
dark."
"Hc did not like mc," said Mrs.
Egerton, with a Utile, shiver.
"Doll doesn't mind the. ghosts a
bit. You know about the little woman in the shawl who is always
turning up there. Not many girls
would care to live with such a housemate."
It was on the Squire's lips to say
that no girl should be asked to live
iii such lonliness. Rut, after all, he
knew nothing. Probably there was
a quiet happiness (or Dolly in thc
Old Cottage, and he did not suppose
there was really anything in the story
of thr. little woman in the shawl.
Dolly often said odd things, with a
certain wry humor in the expression
nl lur lips" which told that she would j
havc been merry if she was a little i
happier. j
"1 will leave the book,' he said,
taking it frmn lhc table where lie j
had put il down.
Egerton  came  outside
and they stuod a while talking
"1 was unwilling for Doll lo gOjK
back to the cottage," he said apolo- i E
cetically, "But���I thought it was g
best. She and I were once all in all g
to each other. It is very hard on the J ��
one who is left in those circum- g
stances. 1 am sure I should have'""
hated Dolly's husband���unless he'd
been no end of a good fellow."
Through  thc    gap in    the    privet
hedge  they  could  see  thc  light    of
Dolly's lamp.  After all, what  reason
was there lo he afraid? Dolly    was
ptactically within earshot of lhc New
Collage.  What could happen to her:

The Princess Pats
'Ihe West Can Claim Some Distinction in This Connection
Ottawa announces that the Princess l'atriria's regiment is officially
declared as belonging to the Ottawa-
Kingston military district. That appears to be about the coolest piece
of man-stealing lhc department has
put over yet. Hitherto Alberta ���battalions have been broken up to supply men to fill the slackers' gaps in
units claimed by towns scattered all
thc way from one. ocean to the other, and drafts have been taken from
Edmonton to enable Ottawa and
Kingston to have lhc credit of being
represented by units overseas.
But this seems lo be. the lirst in-
stanec in which a battalion has been
stolen intact and put to lhc credit of
a district having uo shadow of claim
lo it. It is tiie more notable thai
the battalion in question has been
longer at the front than any other
Canadian unit, has suffered more, aud
has conic lo hc the. most widely
known for ils exploits. Montreal supplied lhe colonel and western Canada thc men for Ihc original Princess
falsi Alberta contributing more
men than any other province. Reinforcements have been recruited
among the students at universities
from McGill westward lo Alberta, to
which Ottawa university and Kingston may have contributed contingents but not disproportionately
large ones.
On thc fare, of il, therefore, if this
regiment is lo be allocated to any
particular district Alberta has by ail
odds the rightful claim, and of .all
possible competitors ihe Ottawa-
Kingston district has just about thc
least pretence of a claim,-���From ihe
Edmonton Bulletin.

Gillis--That's right. A man goes

Views of Marriage
Spinster Whose Prejudices Were of
a Most Decided Kind
A Miss Graham who died while
engaged in war work at Malta, and
left legacies of $.SU0,000, held strange
views on the marriage question. Oil
the ground lhat her views indicated
an unhealthy and unsound mind at
the time when she prepared her will
a relative opposed probate.
in the evidence adduced It was
proved that llic deceased had altered
a former will under which her relative would have received a substantial legacy and some valuable property because she had "degraded
herself" hy entering llie abhorrent
stale of matrimony, The deceased
lady even assailed the Archbishop of
Vork for his marriage views, aud
railed him "lillhy minded."
The point at issue was submitted
In a jury, who held that strange
marriage views-did not prove a stale
of Insanity, with which the judge
concurred, At lhe same lime the
foreman expressed lhe regret that
the deceased had had no experience
of matrimony, when she might have
revised her verdict.

Use City Boys on Farms
Systematic Way to Increase    Crops
in thc Dominion
Thc Canadian government is adopt,
ing a very systematic way to increase
the crops of the Dominion. An official commission, composed of professors of diffeertn universities, has
been appointed to visit the high
schools and colleges and enlist boys
for agricultural work during the summer months. Attention will bc given
thc physical ability of the boys and
tlicy will sign, with the consent of
their parents, for six months' service
on the farms. A record will bc kept
of their work and efficiency, which
will be credited to them thc same as
if it were, in the rrgntar classes in
the schools and colleges. This looks
like a pretty good scheme, not only
to gel intelligent farm workers, btit
for thc real advantage of the boys.
It was tried iu a small way las', year
and the result was that the boys who
worked 011 the farms outstripped in
their studies those "who remained in
the schools. That is the same sort
of record that has been made in some
manual training schools where the
bo\s who spent half of their time at
work and the other half at their stud,
ics, took nearly all the scholastic
frizes in thc intcrschool contests,
while they swept the platter almost
clean in the athletic fields. If there
could be a scheme invented that
would put thc large groups of boys
who idle away their lime in the pool
halls and on the streets out on the
farms during the summer months, it-
would bc of incalculable advantage to
them and their country.���Omaha

Some Germans have a strange way
of showing their confidence in the
victory that is to settle the war in
their favor, A number of Germans,
well-known to people in England,
knowing lhal they could not purchase certificates in the recent war
loan, set the wheels of negotiation
going through friends in neutral nations and bought largely in this
way. Thc fact has just come to the
knowledge of .the London Stock Exchange and now it is a question with
the broker, who innocently arranged it whether he can iu any way cancel thc deal.

German Ability in thc War
One Is Not Tempted to Envy   the
Germans for Their Cleverness
There has been far too much laudation of German ability in this war.
When onc considers the vast amount
of forethought given by the Germans
to the war and the mobilization for
a period of forty years of the best
brains of lhe country toward the one
end of military success and then
surveys the results achieved one is
not tempted to envy the Germans for
their cleverness! but rather to think
how much better the French, the
Americans, or thc English would
havc done thc job if they had given
their mind to it. The Germans in
international politics remind us of
the dull schoolboy who, having worked out with immense industry an
enormous sum in multiplication and
division quite correctly to thirty
places of decimals, manages at the
end to produce a widly incorrect result by pointing his decimals two or
three places out.���H. Sidtbotham

Dear Sir; --In \ ietv of the recent
statement issued by Mr. Hooyer,
Chaii man fur the  Commission   for
the impossibility at presenl of obtaining the necessary shipping tonnage to forward to Belgium the I
food supplies in the same quantities
as iu the past, and also draws at-1
teution to the fact that the United
States government have made arrangements to loan to Ihu Belgian
government the sum of $45,000,000
payable to tiie Commissioner for
Relief in Belgium in six monthly
instalments, which Stun will cover
the cost of such food -.supplies as
can be shipped in that time by the
limited number of ships available
to the C.iiimission, t,.e Central
Executive Committee of the Belgian
Relief Fund 111 Canada finds it Unnecessary for the present, to make
appeal to the generously disposed
people of Canada on the plea of the
urgency of support ill order to stave
off starvation.
The needs of Belgium continue
however as pressing as in the past
and the situation may be considered a.s being even more pitiable as.
through the for ed decreased in imports, Belgium will be compelled
lo fall back on her last native re
sources already so denuded. In
order to maiuta.li that so limited
ration that has been doled out in
the past it will be necessary to encroach upon the Country's stock of
Milk Cattle which have been reserved to maintain a supp.v of fresh
milk for the children,
In the hope, however, that the
recent swiftly developed shortage
in the world's shipping, Ihe cause
of this new departure of the Relief
Woik, many not pert-fatietiily endure, In the hone that the necessary funds may be available should
any emergency or special occasion
arise, and in view of the fact that
in any event relief in many forms
will be required afler the war, the
Committee hope that all the generous stipportersjol the fund in the
past and all those who have pled-
ged themselves fcr future piyments
will continue to support the Fund
and thus continue to show their
sympathy with the people who gave
their all for the cause of Humanity
All such donations received after
the 15th of June will be disposed of
to the best advantage of this stricken people, according to the wish
that iiiav be expressed to any donor or according to the actual or
more pressing needs of any of the
already organized channels of Relief wor1.- such as: ���
"Help to lhe children removed
from Belgian front."
''Queen's Fund for the wounded
soldiers."
"Home for tlie Belgian soldiers"
''Relief for Belgian prisoners ill
Germnny."
"Anglo Belgian Committee of
the Belgian Red Cro��\s."
"Relief for Belgian children suffering from Tuberculosis and rickets."
"Belgian orphan fund."
"Belgian National Relief Fund
for wnr orphans."
All donations received prior to
the 15th of June will be held at the
disposal o.i the Commission lor ihe
Reliei in Belgium, for the purchase
in Canada of Canadian produce,
according to our previous pledges.
The Centra-Executive Committee

Everybody who has proper respect for themselves is getting an
auto, Little River now being in the
lead. One of our prominent citi
/.ens purchased one recently, ami
is having the time of his life running it and while climbing a hill
he had au experience that made
his hair stand 011 end. A.s he was
wanting a little more power he
yanked on the throttle Lo give it a
little more juice and speed, but instead jf going forward it started to
back down the hill with a terrific
velocity, But as he is a man of
great presence of mind, '_he yanked
on the friction lever and reversed
the engine and brought it to a
standstill. He thinks that before
a green hand undertakes to run a
car in the streets in business hours
he should practise running a wheel
barrow in the back yard, as he considers a wh-.elbarrow nearly a.s
dangerous as a car, because it jwill
face you from every {direction and
it make 1 uo difference whether it
is uspide down. He says��� the only
time you can trust a ear or barrorr
is when you are a safe distance
from them. He says it is dangerous to be safe.

Germany's Influence
Germany Blamed for Disrupting
Peaceful Ideals of the U.S.
When all is said and done, the
greatest injury which we have sustained from Germany is the one
which is not mentioned in the list of
our grievances. Our commerce has
been attacked; American lives have
been sacrificed lo the German government's disregard of International
law���these are the grievances everywhere specified. Hut greater than
these and more vitally affecting the
nation is the fact that by reason of
the German government's action wc
have changed from tho greatest
peace nation of the world to a nation
that must put itself on a purely militaristic basis and organize a con-
scrlptlve system which may never be
dispensed with,
If the militarists aie right, Ihen we
ought to thank Germany for so
transforming our life. That is to say,
il during all these years we have
been playing the part of the fool by
eschewing militarism and refusing to
support large standing armies, then
we ought to thank Germany for
shocking us out ot our folly and forcing us to do the thing wc ought long
ago to havc done.
But if our old ideals were right,
ii we were justified in olTermg the
world thc spectacle of an unarmed
nation maintaining peace by the justice of ils actions, then wc can only
blame Germany for bringing us down
to her own level.- From lhe Detroit

YES !    LIFT A CORN
OFF WITHOUT PAIN
Cincinnati   man   tells  how   to
dry up a corn or callus so
it lifts off with fingers
You corn-pestcred men and women
need suffer no longer. Wear th<
shoes that nearly killed you before,
says this Cincinnati authority, because a few drops of freezone applied directly on a tender, aching
corn 'or callus, slops soreness at
ence and soon the corn or hardened
callus loosens so it can be lifted off,
root and all, without pain.
A small holllc of freezone coals
very little at any drug store, bul
will positively take off every hard or
soft com or callus. This should be
tiied, as it is inexpensive and is said
not  lo irritate the surrounding skin.
If your druggist hasn't any free-
zone tell him to get a small bottle
for you from his wholesale drug
house. It is line stuff and aits like a
charm every time.
British  Army  a Producer
The armies arc self-supporting, too
as surely armies never were before.
There is (he very romance of organization in the fact that "in Mesopotamia something like 3,000 acres of
vegetable gardens are under cultivation;" and there is certainly thc hard
economies of it in the fact that the
waste fat now saved from thc soldiers' rations produces 1,000 tons of
refined glycerine a year, which means
"propellant charges for approximately 12,500,000 18-pounder shells," and,
Incidentally, a saving to the munitions ministry of nearly _'00 pounds a
ton on the prlVC of glycerine as pur-
ehascd from America. -London
Daily Telegraph.
Tt is a Liver Pill.���Many of the ailments that man has to contend with
have their origin ill a disordered
liver, which is a delicate organ, peculiarly susceptible to the disturbances
that conic from irregular habits or
lack of care in eating and drinking.
This accounts for the great many
liver regulators now pressed on the
attention of sufferers. Of these there
is none superior to rarniclcc's Vegetable Pills. Their operation though
gentle is effective, and the most deli
cate can use them.

however, never get more than five

charged with shielding a wounded
Frenchman, for which hc was condemned to twelve months' imprison

His daughter, Baroness dc Con
ir.ck, a young married woman, whose
husband is at the front, was present
at the hearing. A German officer sat
down beside her, saying: "I believe,
madam, .1 havc met you before."
Baroness dc Coninck replied: "You
arc mistaken. I don't know you, sir."
Thc German persisted, saying:
"Perhaps I am mistaken, but you
greatly resemble an English woman
whom I knew well."
"Evidently you mean Miss Cavell,1
retorted the Baroness.
For this answer she was sentenced
to onc month in prison.

Its War Tims Aspect.
London, Eng. The women of England
are doing thoir duty. They arc taking
care of lho wounded, or if they cannot
assist in work of that kind they are adding
their savings to promote tho good work.
They aro Knitting and Bewing for the
soldiers at tho front. Tht suffragists have
given so littlo troublo to tho government
that it will undoubtedly soften the hearta
of those in Parliament, since the "militants" bave turned all their energies to
aid the fighting mon of England, and
so sufferage may soon come after thi_
terrible war ia over.
Thousands of women in Canada have
overcome their sufferings, and have
been cured of woman's ilia by Dr. Pierce's
Favorite Prescription. This temperance
medicine, though started nearly half a
century ago, sells most widely to-day,
bee?use it is made without alcohol or
narcotics. It can now be had in taMet
form as well as liquid, and every woman
who Buffers from backache, headache,
nervou-nesa, should take this "Prescription" of Dr. Piereo. It is prepared from
nature's roots and herbs and does not
contain a particle of alcohol or any narcotic It's not a soerel. prescription for
its ingredients nre priuted on wrapper.
Many a woman is nervous aud irritable, feels dragged down and worn out
for no reason that sho can think of. In
ninety-nine per cent, of these cases it
is tho womanly organism that requires
attention; tho weak back, dizzy spells
and black circles about the eyes, are only
symptoms. Go to tlie souroe of trouble.
When that is corrected the oth<"r symptoms disappear.
St. Thomas. Ont.���"I wish to say for
the benefit of other women who suffer
that I recommend Dr. Pierce's Favorite
Prescription as a great help. I have
personally recommended tho same to
many who in turn have beon helped ��
great deal by its use."���Mrs. F. J.

Good Advice from an Ancient
Juvenal, who wrote in the first century of this era, urged the. poorer
people of Rome to move into the
country, where, for the same amount
of rent which they paid in the city,
a small place of residence could bf
bought, nnd they could be free from
the dark and narrow quarters which
they called home. Somehow this advice has a familiar sound in the
twentieth century, and what is more
to the point, it is just as applicable
now, and is just as sound as it was
then. ���Christian Science Monitor,

AMERICAN JOURNAL PRAISES THE
VALOR OF OUR CANADIAN TROOPS
I GREAT ADMIRATION FOR RARE (COURAGE SHOWN
Canada's   Sous   Have   Won   for   Liberty   More   Than   Added
leiriiory, but a Victory Which Answers German Idea That
The World Can Ue Reconstructed by Material Force
in a lengthy editorial under the
caption "Well done, Canada," the
New Vork Tribune says:
"Every American will feel a thrill |
of ridnirr.ilion and a touch of honest
envy at the achievements of the t'an-
iidian  iroops aboul Arras on  Easier
Sunday  and  the  following  day.
"Thc glory of the Canadian light
at thc Ypres salient has been too
little appreciated on our side of the
northern frontier. Rarely in history
have troops, volunteer troops, suddenly exposed to a flank attack
through no (anil of their own, but
by the collapse of their neighbors,
had to bear a more terrific blow than
that which followed the lirsl gas
attack, Vet in the midst of confusion, assailed by the appnling poison
of German making, the Canadian volunteers stood and died as the British
regulars had stood and died in the
gtcater battle of Ypres of 1914.
"And now the Canadians have
Swept up the famous Yimy ridge,
which halted the French veterans of
F'ocll and proved too great an obstacle for the genius of the greatest.
offensive lighter France has yet produced in thc war. Afler long mouths
of waiting the Canadians have had
their hour. They have had a chance
to avenge their comrades, crucified
by German brutes in Flanders; they
have had an opportunity to write
the name of Canada on the. war map
of Europe and their imprint will bc
remembered���in Germany quite as
much as in America.
"Wc shall know later at what price
this achievement was accomplished;
but no price will be too high and
for Canada this day of victory will
have a lasting value. I'or Canada,
too, its value will be less than for
the British Empire.
"Nearly three-quarters of a million
of Canadian and Australian troops
have responded to the call of thc
Hriiish Empire, more than half of
them wearing the Canadian Maple
Leaf. German plotting, German
scheming, the wise plans of thc professors on paper and of the German
soldiers on the map, have been an
il is possible to speak lo Germans
now.
"Americans will feel a certain envy
in the thought that Canada has outdistanced us in reaching the battle-
line, which is tiie frontier of our common civilization, Wc shall lake what
comfort we may from the knowledge
thai among the Canadian forces are
a considerable contingent of citizens
of lhe Uniled Slates, an unofficial
vanguard, wc shall trust, of that
American army which is in due
course to take ils place along the
French front. They arc serving- in
worthy company.
"No praise of Canadian achievement can bc exclusive. From the
plain and from the mountains, from
tlie cities and the prairies Canada has
poured out her thousands and her
hundreds of thousands; she has sent
across the ocean an army greater
than Napoleon ever commanded on
any battlefield; her volunteer regiments have shown that same stubborn and tenacious quality which is
the glory of thc llritish army.
"Canada's sons have won for liberty not merely a few square, miles
of _ French territory, but a victory
which makes answer to the German
idea that the world can be reconstructed without regard to the spirit
of man, merely by material force.
"Our entrance inlo the war should
make a new bond between the Canadians and out selves."
The Haughty Master Cecil
The waywardness of Master Cecil,

it necessary for his mother to use her

evening his father came home to
discover palpable proof of the fact
that Cecil had been having a private
interview with his mother.
"Well, Cecil, what's    thc    trouble

"Vour wife has been    licking   me

Analysis of the Railway Situation by
Mr. W.  F.  Tye, C.K.
In a paper presented to the Canadian Society of Civil Engineers Mr,
W.F. Tye, formerly Chief Engineer
of the. Canadian Pacific, gives a masterly analysis oi the railway situation
in this country, From his years of
experience thinking and solving rail
way problems as onc of the outstanding railway engineers in Canada, Mr. d'ye has had not only the
attitude of the engineer but that of
the economist as well.
Amongst Mr. Tyc's summarized
conclusions are:
Thc National Transcontinental,
lhc Grand Trunk Pacific and the
Canadian Northern Railways arc unable to earn their operating expenses
and their fixed charges. Canada has
built, and is operating, the first of
these roads, aud Canada and the
various provinces have guaranteed
the principal and interest of most of
the bonds of thc other two. As the
roads ate unable to earn their lixed
charges, they must, of necessity, be
paid by the country.
The failure, of these roads is due
to the duplication of lines hy all the
railways, encouraged and boilUSed by
the government; to the excessive
cost of the Grand Trunk Pacific aud
National Transcontinental Railways;
to the failure of the Grand Trunk
Pacific, to provide itself wilh an adequate system of feeders in the West,
and to the construction, by the Canadian Northern, of the long and unproductive .stretches of road across
Hriiish Columbia and Northern Ontario, without feeders, terminals, etc.
If these railways are lo hc maintained in two separate svstcuis, it
will cost at least $-100,000,000. It
will be necessary to build live or six
thousand miles of feeders in the
West, and two or three thousand
miles of feeders in the East, and terminals costing many millions.
A consolidation of the Grand
Trunk, the Grand Trunk Pacific,
Transcontinental and Canadian
Northern Railways would give a
well-balanced system. Such a combination would not require morc than
$100,000,000 to put it in proper physical condition.
Including operating expenses &nd
fixed charges, it costs the Canadian
Faciiic about $70 to do $100 worth of
business, and it costs the Intercolonial and thc other Canadian government roads from $200 to $.'20 to do
$100 worth of business.
Canada should follow the wise example set by Sir John Macdonald
when dealing with the. Canadian Pa
cific in 1879-80, and form s-^icw pri
vate corporation with sufficient power and the necessary safeguards, lo
take over and consolidate thc
Trunk, Grand Trunk Paclfi
continental and Canadian Northern
Railways, and develop another Can
adian Pacific.
Such a combination would start
with gross earnings of at least $100,-
000,000 per annum, wilh a probable
average increase of 8 per cent, pel
annum, and probable net earnings of
from $25,000,000 to $30,000,000 per
annum, and a net revenue from other
sources of about $2,800,000. Its fixed
charges at consolidation would bc
about $35,000,000 and it would be under the necessity of spending, in the
first five to seven years, at least
$100,000,000 to provide rolling stock,
and to put ils properties in good physical condition.
In order to control its policy nnd
to share in its certain prosperity,
Canada should havc an interest in
the new company. 'lhe Dominion
government should furnish 40 per
cent, of thc money required, own 40
per cent, of the slock, and appoint
40 per cent, ot the directorate, hut
take uo part in the actual management. This would give aii the advantage of government control without any of the manifest disadvantages
of government management.

Devises Excellent Plan
Arrangements for holding school

lhe various schools lo Moose. Jaw
for competition in a big central fair,
are still being made audit looks as
though the efforts of the Moo-re Jaw
agricultural society in this respect
will h<" crowned ���th success,
'lhe idea in brief is to havc as
many schools as possible enter the
competition; thc pupils themselves to
look afler the raising of garden pro-
due., roots, grasses, poultry, pigs
and calves. The municipalities arc
being asked to help the idea along
and with the aid of the trustees of
the various schools it is thought that
a number of successful local exhibitions Will bc held, After lhe competitions are over, it is thc idea of thc
association to bring all the prize winners of the various schools to Moose
Jaw and have them compete one
with the. olhcr for valuable prizes to
be given by the agricultural society.
Other help may also bc asked for to
make the event a success and as It
.means bringing quite a lot of children together with their parents and
friends from thc rural districts, it is
altogether likely that Moose Jaw
merchants will wish to be represented In the prize list.

Thirty-two months have passed;
since the first German soldier crossed the Belgian frontier and by his
crossing opened a breach in lhc wall
of civilization llirougli which wave
afler wave of barbarism has entered,
We arc nearly three years away
from thc moment when Gcrifiany
elected to put into play all that vast
machinery she had prepared ovcr a
generation, to employ all those colossal plans she had made to achieve
that world power of which Bernhardi
wrote and German leaders dreamed.
And now, after lhe.se months, how
much of all lhc German ambitious
has been realized? Belgium was
struck down that Germany might
get at once at the throat of France,
and today German iroops in France
are retreating, while France remains
unconqucred aud a million Germans
lie buried between the Meusc and
the Channel.
To overawe Belgium i.rrmau
troops acting under orders performed their sordid Task of ruthlessness
hc'tj'rand in Louvain; they slaughtered chlld-
c Trans- ren, outraged women, murdered old
men; they lurried the cily Into a
shambles���and after thirty-two
months thc soul of Belgium remains
unconqucred and lhe sound of the
Allied guns draws nearer to the
ruins of Louvain.
To paralyze Russia. German spies
and German agents corrupted Slav
generals, sowed the Russian, court
with treason and enlisted Russian
autocracy and royally, and today
Russia is in fact a republic and the
voice of the Russian people has re-
Titrdialcd the tn ason of Russian
leadership.
To terrorize Britain Zeppelins were
sent over Loudon and many innocent
non-combatants were killed. Edith
Cavell was executed, Captain Fryatt
was murdered, submarine fleets were
launched to sweep Britain from the
seas, and today. 2,000,000 llritish
iroops are advancing in France, and
wherever a German agent has endeavored to sow treason in a llritish
colony Britain has reaped a crop of
loyally and devotion. Australia, Canada, South Africa an represented in
the Brilish battle line. 1 lie stones of
the Brilish ftiip'iie have been cemented by ihe blood of Brilons and
Colonials alike, shed in Hit same
cause.
Greal Britain, Italy, Roumania, tlie
I'nited Slates, each of the great neutrals, has in turn laid aside that neutrality which had become impossible;
there has been a plebiscite of peoples,
and the verdict <d mankind is written; men o( many nations have
chosen lo die, men ol* man} races
have risked the supreme hazard,
rather than permit the German gospel, expressed utterly in lhe Belgian
invasion, io prevail in the world.
There is no device known lo materialistic civilization, to srientilic
and organized civilization, that the
German has nol employed, lie has
used lhe hospitality of other nations
to plant treason within their borders; hc has endeavored to turn one
man against another in each neutral nation; by treason, by terrorism,
by intrigue, by violence he has
sought lo undermine, the liberties or
to subdue the spirit of mankind. In
Europe as in America his opn - and
his agents have labored in darkness
to turn nations against each other,
he has offered to Italy provinces of
France as he has offered Mexico
slates of our nation; hc has corrupted,  cheated, murdered,  robbed.
And what has all this profited him?
llis terrorism bas aroused the courage of those he sought to intimidate
and his ruthlessness has armed the
hands and the wills of those he
sought to paralyze. His corruption,
his intrigue, have but united those
he sought to turn against each other;|
his brutality and his barbarism have
roused his opponents to a determination which broke lhe first ru.h oi his
hosts at the Marne and the Yser and
is now turning backward toward Germany itself the slowly weakening
mass of his armies.
What a monstrous thing this German attack has been, and what a
colossal failure I The world has not
been conquered, no part of it; no
people among all that have been attacked has abandoned the battle,
however heavy the first blow- Europe
has been sown with German dead,
hut the harvest has only been enemies. The German calculation included all but thc spirit of man, but
the spirit of man has proven the decisive factor. Mankind has willed
that the German menace should uot
prevail, and we are seeing at last the
ebb tide of barbarism on lhe French
fields.--New York Tribune.
Whnt Happened in Kansas
There are, of course, dilTerenc. in
soil, but, when people talk about
making back-lot gardens this spring
they might as well bc reminded ot
something that happened to a Ka_-
sas back-lot gardener last season.
He planted pumpkins. They grew,
and tlicy continued to grow until
they ran over the neighboring bad-
lots and climbed the porches of
neighboring houses and trespassed
even upon thc alley and the street.
Everybody within the block mads
free with that man's pumpkins, and
yet a petition was sent to the town
council asking that he be forbidden
to grow things this year. He has
compromised the matter by greeting
a close wire fence around Iiis premises, and the neighbors are now
afraid his pumpkins will grow upwards until they shut out the afternoon sun.���From the Christian
