A Nice German Prisoner

When die German prisoners first

they seem lo bc happy and cheerful,

���ucli that they arc under a surveillance almost nominal and work well
under the direction of llieir non-commissioned officer, At the sight of a
French or Brilish officer lhcy stiffen
up and saline iu proper fashion,
showing the same deference as toward their own officers, and indicating tlie complete discipline of the
Teutonic nation. There is a docility
about these prisoners that is almost
pathetic, and it seems to please the
easy-going Tommy Atkins, who
���hows only kindly feeling toward
them, for he is constantly skipping
when not on duly to give them lo-
bacco or other, jjood Ihings. One
slmph minded Tommy, after a dc-
ipcrr:'., struggle in the trcjich with a
huge German, whose face was con
lldcrahly dam gcd by fist and bayo
net, brought his prisoner in and
calmly requested that lie he allowed
to keep him with him because he

A Tonic Medicine ls n Necessity at
This Season
Dr. Williams' l'ink Tills for Pale
People are. an all year round tonic,
blood-builder and nerve-restorer- But
they arc especially valuable in lhe
spring, when the syslem is loaded
with impurities as a result of the indoor life of the whiter months. There
is no other season when lhc blood is
so much in need of purifying and en
riching, and every dose of these pills
helps to make new, rich, red blood.
In the spring one feels weak and
tired���Dr. Williams' l'ink I'ills give
strength. In the spring the appetite
is often poor���Dr. Williams' i'inl
Pills develop the appetite, tone tire
stomach and aid weak digestion. It
is in the spring that poisons in the
blood find an outlet in disfiguring
pimples, eruptions and boils���Dr.
Williams' Pink I'ills speedily clear
the skin because they go to thc root
of the trouble In the blood. In the
spring anaemia, rheumatism, indigestion, ncuralglia, erysipelas and many
other troubles are most pcrsistcnl
because of poor, weak blood, and it is
at this time when all. nature takes
on new life that the blood most seriously needs attention. Some people
dose themselves with purgatives at
this season, but these only further
weaken themselves. A purgative
merely gallops through the system,
emptying the bowels, but it does not
cure anything. ' On thc other band
Dr. Wiliams' rink Pills actually
make new blood which reaches every
nerve and orgati in thc body, bringing new strength, new health and
vigor to weak, easily tired men. women and children. Try Dr. Williams'
Fink Pills this spring���they will not
disappoint you.

A Cure for Rheumatism.���A painful and persistent form of rheumatism is caused by impurities in thc
bloa4, lhe result of defective action
of the liver aud kidneys. The blood
becomes tainted by the introduction
of uric acid, which causes much pain

and their use is strongly recommended A trial of them will convince
anyone of their value.

'This new way to rid one's feet of

corn or callus without irritating thc

The. plain mailer of fact is that
the German empire has made itself
impossible in Europe. Its root ideas,
its fundamental conceptions, ils historic estimate of men aud things, its

are so widely different from what

A Solar Water Heater
Using Sunshine for   Heating  Water
in California
The sun itself heats the hot water
used by many residents of Monrovia
and other places in southern California. According to the Scientific
American, the sunshine water heater
consists of a coil of pipe arranged in
a box about four inches deep with a
copper bottom and a glass top. The
apparatus is usually placed on the
roof or in a similar exposed location.
The rays of thc sun heat the water
in the pipe and thus set up a circulation that carries the water to a
storage tank, from which it is drawn
for household usage. Thc storage
tank is so thoroughly insulated that
the loss of temperature during the
night is usually not more than four
or five degrees. Southern California
is unusually favored with sunshine,
but there seems to be no reason why
this economical method of heating
water should not be used in other
parts of the counlry during hot,
sunny weather.

I lorrors oi ihc Countryside Recently Evacuated by the German
Army in Rctrcal is Described by Whyte Williams in an
Article in the New Vork Times
A.s ,\e approached the ruined vil
lages I was at firsl not greatly impressed by the damage, that had been
none, lhat was because these
Flench villages have endured hundreds of years; Ihey are. built solidly
of brick and stone, and ordinary
burning docs not level them In the
ground as would be^the rase of
American villages oriraillC houses,
or as the ease of French villages
after artillery bombardment. Hut
when wc rode tlirougli the deserted
Rlld silent streets we saw what
ghaslly hand had been at work. The
walls of lhe houses wcrc only shells
concealing charred ruins. Not only
one village is like that, nor a dozen,
but every single onc of the hundreds
that have been liberated has been put
to fire and sword, old men, old women, cripples, left to await the arrival of their own soldiers lo care for
them; their ablebodicd men taken in.
to bondage, months ago, their young
women and girls herded along with
the retreating army to a slavery no
one dares think about without seeing
red. And at every village thc same
message was left behind for the
French soldiers when they arrived.
Translated it reads like this:
"You scc what we havc done
here. Well, this is what is going to
happen all the way back to thc
French frontier."
Is it any wonder that the French
soldier telling me this said between
clenched teeth:
"There is only onc answer to that,
my friend. Let them get down on
their knees and pray when the
French army crosses the Rhine.
Wc will bc taking no prisoners ou
that day."
The aspect of the villages Is sad
enough, but the countryside is
worse. I have seen so much of artillery destruction during this war
that I confess 1 have been rather
sated wilh ruins. A destroyed
churcli, a house ripped clean to its
foundations, is only another example
of what I havc seen dozens of times
before. But a countryside that has
so little left of it as that one I passed through is a sight that made mc,
want to cry and fight at the same
time. It has already been reported
how orchards havc becn destroyed.
1 ralhcr expected that this had happened just along the roads by which
lhc army retreated. But with field
glasses I could see far in on every
tide of every road for miles and
miles; every farm is burned,    fields

destroyed, every garden and every
bush uprooted, every tree sawed oil
close to the bottom. It was a terrible sight and seemed almost worse
than the destruction of men, Those
thousands of Irecs prone upon the
earth, their blanches waving in thc
wind, seemed undergoing death agonies before our eyes.
Everything gave its share to the
blood lust of hate. Churches gave
their organs for their copper, also
the brass walls of their altars, even
crucifixes upon ruined walls were
stripped down and torn asunder.
We passed through the remnant of
a place called Porqucricourt. An
old woman came to a broken doorway. Wc stopped to talk with her.
She smiled at the sight of the French
uniforms of our officers. She lived on
a farm a mile away. Thc Germans
had passed in the night and burned
it so that she had come to Porqucr-
icourt to hide in the cellar of a
friend. Her husband and brother,
both old men, had been killed by the
Germans during thc retreat, her two
sons led off to slavery thc year before. One of them had come back,
but had becn seized again only a few
weeks before.
Her three daughters had been with
her at thc farm the night that the
Germans retreated. They Pad fled
with her to the house of her friend,
fioin where they saw their own home
of a lifetime in flames. The girls
were 19, 21 and 24 years old. The
Germans had found them in Por-
quericourt and had taken them away,
lhat was eight days before. She
had heard nothing of them since. All
other young women had likewis
vanished that night when thc Germans went away.
She told her story simply in a-low
unfaltering voice. But she shudder-
cd as she spoke of her daughters. I
said to her:
"The next day after the Germans
had gone, how did it seem to scc
French soldiers appear?"
She replied; "It was such a feeling
that it is impossible to describe, with
an emotion of joy, monsieur, tha't is
beyond words."'
1 asked another question:
"And how do you feel now���husband, brother, sons and daughters
all gone and yon left here alone?"
I shall never forget thc sight of
her gray head. She looked into my
eyes aud replied:
"Today, monsieur, I am with
France���and I have confidence-"

The status of women in Russia has
been different than in any other oc-

which has waxed and waned alternately for generations, but which
never has been suppressc1 entirely,

prevailed under the pressure of autocracy, perhaps because of lhat

China Banishes
Curse of Opium
Age-long Habit Which Crippled Millions Is to Knd Afler
Long Fight
lhe counlry which for generations
has been looked upon as the leasl
progressive in thc world has won
the greatest victory ever achieved
over a vice that was a national curse,
writes Charles Stirrup in The New-
York Sun. China has shown itself
worthy of thc. distinction oi being the
oldest civilization in existence. ll
has set every Occidental country an
example by abolishing the source of
much of its misery, degradation and
weakness, for after March 31 the
opium traffic ceased altogether. A
vice that has held tens of millions
in ils clutches is being exterminated.
European and American investigators differ in opinion as lo whether
the ravages of opium are worse than
those of alcohol, but agree thai the
use of the Fasti rn drug is a more
insidious habit than liquor drinking
and harder to stamp oul. Moreover,
the percentage of high Chinese officials wdio wcrc at one. lime slaves
to opium was far higher than Ihe
proportion which alcohol could claim
among the administrators and civil
servants of western counlries, and
repressive measures adopted by lhe
government have in all rases been
hampered by Influential personal inclination such as would nol bc met
with elsewhere. Ridding the Celestial Empire of its favorite vice has
therefore been a stupendous task,
greater and more wonderful even
tlum Russia's abolition of vodka: but
it has been accomplished alter ten
years' of well planned work of a
thorough common-sense kind, to the] l_"J'E_,ll_ -^f,.?;?.-*1���*)
incalculable benefit and everlasting
credit of a gifted people.

Manitoba Forests
Will Prove a Valuable Asset if Properly  Protected
"There seems no just reason why
Northern Manitoba should not repeat to a degree the wonderful development in wood-using Industries
now taking place iu Quebec, Manitoba holds splendid promise, of industrial growth in the northern forested areas with their line water
powers. The trouble has been that
culture, aud forestry has tagged behind like a poor relation."
This was a statement made by Mr.
Robson Black, secretary of thc Canadian Forestry association,   Ottawa.
"None of the provinces of Canada
is exclusively agricultural. Seventy,
fve per cent, of northern Manitoba
above the open prairie line will never give crops other than limber.
There is little use bemoaning these
facts. We ought to turn them to
immediate commercial advantage.

desert to the south, a lofty steppe

For centuries Palestine has belonged to Turkey and lln: Turku
have divided it into ihree vilayets

Will Reach Prom the Peace River t��
the Boundary in the South
Elevator companies are planning to
construct this spring a large number
of new storehouses in Alberta. The
Alberta Farmers' Co-operative Company count on putting up 40 new
elevators in the province before the
1917 crop is ripe, these to reach from
the Peace River to thc southern
boundary. Already 36 sites have
been secured and negotiations are
under way for the remainder. All
railway lines are being treated impartially, and new structures will appear this year on practically every
branch of line in the province. The
cost of thc elevators is placed roughly at $.150,000 and the capacity will
run all the way from .5,000 to 63,-
000 bushels each. The building!
will be planned much the same at
those already in use by this company,
and all will be modern handling ar_d
storing buildings.
Placing the average storage capa-
city of these elevators at 40,00.
bushels, the lotal additional capacity
which will be provided by this company for the 1917 crop will be 1,600,-
000 bushels. Work is to be_ commenced at once, and abo.t 150 mea
will be employed.

The Squire spoke to Lionel Edgcrton, who was tenderly sorry for Dolly and seemed for once not lo turn
to his .wife, seeking her countenance
for what hc did.
Dolly was not to go hack to the
Old Cottage to sleep. The need for
il had arisen only with her determination to have Keeper with her. There
was a room for lier at the New Cottage. She could keep the other for
her studio. He had never liked Dolly's sleeping in that place hy herself.
The next morning the Squire wns
present when Lionel Egerton brought
Iiis sisler to have a last lookat her
old friend, lying quietly on his side,
villi green leaves under liim, in the
gir.vc thc gardener from the Mano"
House had superintended, while an
tinder-gardener did the hard work.
"Dolly must see. for herself tha:
he. is dead," the brother said, "else
she will be fancying all sorts of
tilings, after the way of women. Poor
old chap, there is not much doubt1'"
Dolly had looked down at the rigid figure���a long look���before she
turned away. She walked towards
thc cottage. The Squire glanced after her wistfully. Hc longed, but he
did not venture, to try to console
her. In another second he was fnr-
ious witli himself for his hesitation
Someone had joined Dolly coming
fiom llie back of the cottage, by the
gatc in the boundary hedge that led
to the. fields. It was the man Cooper. The Squire was bitterly resentful, 'lhat the fellow should bc with
Dolly iu her hour of grief maddened
him. What right had he. to be .here
���to speak lo her, to look at her, his
dear, beautiful lillle girl?"
They left the men filling in Keeper's grave and turned away.

What (he Squire might have done
or suggested doing was prevented by
llie appearance of Cooper coming
from the cottage, lie looked angry
and'nodded curtly as lie caught sight
of the two men.
"Dolly has got rid of him iu dotl-

'Women arc sometimes not���altogether just lo their dogs.'1
The Squire looked al llie amiable

Cooper was no fit person lo he admitted lo llis sister's Intimacy? The
resentment pushed him into speech.
"A rough, presuming fellow," he
said. "Dei you think he is quite the

"Oh, he won't do any harm. He's

So. Lionel Egerton knew I Despite

Squire was recognizing more clearly
day by day as his debt also; his un-.
payable debl���he knew, saw whal he
saw, only felt himself not at liberty
Ir; act on his knowledge or confess I

By this time the Squire's portrait
was finished and paid for. 'Llicrc had
been a struggle over the payment.
Lionel Egerton had wished thc portrait, to be a gift, seeing that he had
seized on the Squire (or a model and
lhal lhc portrait had not becn commissioned���which was quite true.
"My dear chap," he had said, "I
ought lo pay you for the deliverance
from the ballet-girls. I'or a good
many hours of this blessed summer
1 have been able to forget thai such
a thing as a ballet-girl exists���and
a blessed deliverance il lias been I"
The Squire happened to glance at
Mrs. Egerton, and lhc look on her
fi.ee was eloquent. All of a sudden
he was aware that her fingers _ were
prchcnslbic, They lay loosely in her
lap, thc poinls turned slightly inward, 'ihc expression on her face
was grasping.
"Ah, but, my Leo," she said in her
Hailing soft voice, "thc ballet-girls
mean money, and the pictures do
For once her husband did not look
at her, while, he remarked in a tone
ol finality that he. was not yet come
to being a highwayman.
The Squire was worried about what
he should do, rill Mrs. Egerton, on
the first occasion lhcy were alone together, suggested that in his dealings
with her husband, the business part
had better bc transacted with her.
"Leo is such it baby," she said;
"such a dear babyl He will not s.e
lhat wc must havc bread and butter.
He is determined to make yon a
present of the portrait. 1 will talk
him over. Give mc a few days, and
you shall sec. It is not like his
bachelor days, when there was only
h'mself and Dolly lo be considered.'1
Thc Squire, in a tremendous hurry, wrote a cheque for thc amount he
would have paid to a fashionable
London portrait-painter. Thc portrait was worth it. Egerton had
seen him with the eves of the spirit.
He had caught and fixed on canvas
Ihe Squire's look of austere innocence, the refinement, the gentleness,
the brave and simple regard thai
slumped the face as masculine. Just
a bit of a Don Quixote about him;
something of the St. (ieorgc of Dou-
Ptcllo. When he was older, someone j
was to compare him to a war-worn,
angel who had the look of a grey]
knight, a man-at-arms with dinted
ei mor and shield. Something of the
promise of lhat look was iu the portrait.

Montreal Man Tells
Wonderful Story
George Sullivan, Who Suffered From
the Dread Disease for Two Years
Gives Credit for His Recovery to
Dodd's Kidney Pills.
Montreal, Que., (Special)���Completely cured of that most dreaded of
all diseases, Bright's Disease of thc
kidneys, Mr. George Sullivan, 284 de
St- Valicrs St., this city, is spreading
the good news that hc found his cure
in Dodd's Kidney Pills.
"I suffered from Bright's Disease
for two years," Mr. Sullivan states in
an interview. "I was unable to work
for weeks at a time. 1 spent hundreds of dollars on doctors without
receiving any real benefit and rcceiv-
t'J outdoor treatment at the Montreal
General  Hospital.
"I was feeling very badly discouraged when a friend advised mc to try
Dodd's Kidney Pills. After using
three boxes I was much better. 1
kept on till I had used nine boxes,
when I was completely cured.
"Naturally 1 consider Dodd's Kidney Pills a wonderful remedy."
Dodd's Kidney Pills arc no cure-
all. They ciire kidney diseases of all
kinds from backache to Bright's Disease. Thc proof of this is their
growing popularity in Canada for
over a quarter of a century. If you
haven't used them ask your neighbor
about Ihem.

house, in a resigned way, "you've

Whereupon, in a tone equally resigned, the cook said: "Yis, mum;

Close Dartmoor Prison
Dartmoor prison, which is to be
closed as a convict prison and put to
olhcr uses, was built during our lasl
great war as an internment camp for
French prisoners, and opened in 1809,
For many years after the end of the
war and thc release of the prisoners
Priucclown, a3 the prison is officially
called, remained vacant, until in 18.5
it was first utilized as a convict prison, being one of thc largest in the
country, with accommodation for
[���early eight hundred prisoners. The
use to which it is now to be put haj
not becn disclosed but it would be
rather a coincidence if, after a complete century, it is to revert to i:��
