An orchard scene is a picture lhat
causes the beholder to pause in wonder and admiral ion. On llie canvas lu
Ihe background are trees heavily laden wiih apples; the pickers are al
work on ladders, while on tlie ground
ure many apples lying both loose and
in boxes. Spread ou green matted
carpet that resembles lhe grass of Ihe
field are Quantities of apples and so
cleverely do these rest against the
canvas and merge into ihe painted
pile lhat one looks to see where the
real ends and the artificial begins. And
beside lhe painted boxes stand real
cases equally clever in execution and
arrangement. With it all there are
pyramids of bottled fruits and pretty arrangement in design of the apples and other fruits on the green carpet.
There are mounted duck, grouse,
foxes, elk, buffalo, domestic and wild
game of which, of course, Canada has
ureal abundance. They are depicted as
nearly in their natural habitats as the
skill of both artist; and taxidermists
could devise. Tribute is paid the buffalo, for io the roaming cf these herds
over vast areas is credited tbe present
fertility of the soil through their fertilization. Vou see buffalo from the
Peace River, a thousand miles north of

Seven Seas, the magazine of the
Xavy League of lhe United Stales,
Perry Belmont predicts the downfall
of the German imperial government,
which he describes as "modernized
feudalism, heir iu form am', spirit to
the despotism, of the iniquitous Holy
Alliance.'' Tlie I ilie of Ihe article is
"The Monroe Doctrine." This notable policy, .Mr. Belmont declares, has
become   Ihe   universal   expression   of
ilie aspirations   of all  free governments.
Mr. Belmont characterizes ihe Oer-
; an empire as u "federated union of
slides, in form only self-governing, of
whicli the economic system is in form
only democratic."   lie continues:
"Tho whole Industrial, Intellectual,
and commercial life of lhe German
people is subordinate to lhe reaction-
ary Influence of the Hohenzollern dynasty and ihe military autocracy, whose
feudalism is modernized in so fur as
hi necessary to maintain its authority
and enable ii to mould all German-}'
inlo an efficient war machine, A successful war might prolong the existence of such a system, Unsuccessful
war will mean its downfall. H will
also mean a triumphant liberation of
the : pirit and genius of Hie German
people from Ihe yoke of Prussian absolutism.
"When millions of men returning
from battles uud disastrous campaigns
realize the futility of Ihe efforts Into]
which they have been led against
liberty-loving nations, free institutions
and ihe republicanism of Europe, they
will be found in revolt against a governmeni based upon the theory of the
Divine right."
The .Vonroe Doctrine, says Mr, llel-
mout, was democracy's answer to the
challenge of absolutism of the Holy
Alliance. Tiie doctrine, he says, is
one of the mosi vital issues before the
American people. He adds that, as
the world is constai tly grow ing smaller in a political sense, the enforcement of tiiis traditional policy is more
essential today than when first proclaimed.
Teaching Patriotism
Good Work of Rural  School  Teacher
in   Saskatchewan
Somewhere in northeastern Saskatchewan stands a little schoolhouso
hidden from view by Ihc thick woods
which surround it and threaten to encroach on the small space cleared for
the school grounds, says Hie Public
Service .Monthly, Regina, The sett lenient is an Austrian one and at 8..''0
every morning abnii'. 26 little foreign
born boys and girls make their way
along thc .rails that converge at the
school. At the door they are met by
the teacher, a young Ontario man who
has spent several summers teaching
among foreign-speaking people, lie
shakes hands with each child and his
kind inquiries and remarks indicate
that ho has an intimate knowledge of
the character and home life of each.
All the children then wash their
hands and faces and comb tlieir hair,
the teacher assisting tho little tots,
and it Is evident that ilie sweet-smelling soup and clean towels are very
much appreciated. At the ringing of
a bell the children march to their
positions beside Iheir seats and sing
all together, "Father, we thank
Thee," after which all heads ure bowed and thc "Lord's Prayer' is reverently recited in English. After this
the "flagman" of the duy���a lad of
nine���lakes his place at Ihc door with
a large i'nion .lack and the children
llle past, him and form a circle round
lhe old poplar tree whicli serves as
a flagstaff. Two hoys pull the flag
up while all heartily sing lhe lirst
verse of "God Save the King." lt is
now time to begin the work of tho
dav, and ihe children march into
school wiih happy hearts to wrestle

Promindnt American Contributes   a   Scathing Denunciation
the Attitude of   Germany   in Fomenting a World  W ar
For Which There was no Excuse or Justification
Whui the verdict of tlie American
people is upon this war has never
been more forcibly stated than by
S mue! Harden church, presldenl of
lhe Carnegie Institute, Pittsburg, unl
it is worih while io review the article
lc wroie iu response to tbo famous
appeal of the 93 German professors
and scientists which was addressed to
llie neutral world sum,- months ago.
Tliese professors asserted iu ilie lirst
place lhat Germany wanted peace, und
lhal the violation of Belgium's neutrality was noi io he charged to her,
but rather to Britain and Franc ,
which had previously arranged tu invade Belgium in their march upon
Gem.any, wiih Belgium's consent.
They appealed  to  ihe  shades  of ull
accompanied your hideous invasion.
People sometimes ask us: 'Would you
rather have the Slav than the Ger-
man? And the reply is always to
the same effect: 'Ves, since we have
seen the German al war, we would
rather have the Slav, rather tlie Turk,
rather the Hottentot.'"
In the opinion of President Church,
who has visited Germany, ihc war began potentially 2a years ago. when
ihe Kaiser ascended the throne, proclaimed himself Supreme War Lor:!
and proceeded to prepare his nation
for win. His own children were raided from the cradle to consider themselves soldiers; "aud here in America
we know- even his daughter only by
her photograph L. a colonel's cni-
ihe great Germans in the past to sup-j form." The man wearing the Kais-
port lliem whon Ihey swore that the i er's uniform became at once a mem-
wur upon Germany., part was a wur oi
defence, and that the Fatherland was
the victim of a conspiracy to liiot her
out of thc number of the greet nations.
President Church acknowledges ihe
debt the world owes to Hie great dead
Germans of the past: but lie finds it
difficult lo believe that Hie illustrious men who signed the
appeal have read tin; official documents. How could they say thai Hie
war was forced upou Germany in
face of the admission of the imperial
chancellor, who admitted in ihc
Reichstag that, in violating Belgian
neutrality Germany was committing; a
wrong, which would lie made good as
soon us Germany's military goal had
been reached? Later he suid: "Necessity forced us io violate the neu-
tralily of Belgium, bul we hud premised emphatically lo compensate
lhat country for all damage Inflicted."
In thc face of thtse official announce-'
ments, is it to insult the intelligence
of readers or hearers to suy thut Germany did not violate Belgium's lieu- ]
trality, or lhal. she did sn only after
the allies had doue so'.'
Answering the assertion of liis. correspondent that Germany did nol begin the war, President Church uses
tliese memorable winds:
"If Germany is nol guilty, then, in
God's nume. why are onr armies in
Belgium? Why ftvi Ihey in France?
If you liad waited until you imd been
attacked, you would never have found
your nation at war. Vour Imperial
chancellor says thai you have vio-
laled international law an.; that you
will endeavor to in.ike good the wrong
you are committing. Why-, ull the
! gold you could give lo France und
Belgium in a thousand years, uud all
tin: penitential prayers you could utter in every hour of a thousand years,
together .villi thc contrition of .
shamed and broken heart, would i.ot
repair your ruin of two mil ions hy
fire and slaughter, nor dry up lhe .
oceftn   of human tears    which    have I rial
he;- of an exclusive class. A waiter
questioning a score with a drunken officer was stabbed to the heart, his uniform making a good defence. A man
in humble station who sought to greet
wild familiar appro-eh a soldier uow
In officer's uniform was killed for his
Impudence, the murderer even wriiing
a letter lo his victim's mother just:-
German | lying the crime. "1 have myself,"
says President Church, "seen German
officers elbow gentlewomen on the
street to make mora room l'or themselves. 1 have seen others of them
raise their glasses to lhe day when
liny would bo at war."
Another paragraph in the reply nt
He. church to his German correspondent is worth quoting in full, for it
expresses, as he declares, the opinion
uf ilie great niasses\of tli:.- American
"And so, al last, we liml ourselves
shocked, ashamed and outraged lhat
a  Christian nation should be   suilty
of    ihis    criminal    wur.    When 1 say
that  we hate thi" conflict    and    that
we execrate Ihc    German militarists

American people, including hundreds
of thousands of   our   German-Amert-
1 can citizens.    There was no justifica-
I lion for it.    Armed and  defended as
you were, the whole world could uever
i bave broken into your borders.   And
i while German culture slill has some-
' thing to gain from 1 er neighbors, yet
I thc intellectual progress    which Ger-
t many  was making seemed to be Iift-
| ing up her own    people    to    better
1 tilings for themselves and to an altru-
| istie service lo mankind,   Vour   grea:
| nation flouted its ships In every ocean,
old its wares in the uttermost parts
of the earth,    and enjoyed the good
favor    of humanity,    because it was
trusted as a human state.    But-now
all    this achievement    lias vanished,
all   this  good  opinion    has  been  destroyed.    Vou cannot in half a century  regain the spiritur.I  aud  mate-

Automatic Shell Feeder
Moving Staircase Used to Feed German Guns
The Germans have now devised an
automatic shell-feeding system for 8
and 17-inch guns. An endless chain,
on the principle of a moving staircase,
carries the shells to the guns through
un underground passage from the ammunition depot some distance in lhe
rear. Once the range is found, the gun
is loaded nnd fired automatically, control being exercised by officers from
an armored observation post. Rapidity
of fire antl increased accuracy are
claimed for the now device, whicli also embraces a novel use of the peri-
scop-; for aiming purposes.

To Study Lumber Industry

Tlie U.S. federal trade commission

"Conditions In the lumber trade
liave changed, due in part to tho widespread use of other structural materials than wood," ihe commission said
in a statement issued recently.
"Lumbermen are confronted with
many problems, often not fully understood by them and seldom appreciate^*
by the public. Much can be accomplished by ascertaining the facts und
putting lliem before the people with
lhe authority of a fair and unbiased
investigation. It is the purpose of the
study io find practicable and constructive suggestions looking to lhe improvement of tbe present conditions."

Rural School Children of Ontario En
gage in Patriotic Work
One hundred thousand bushels of
potatoes, grown by rural school children of Ontario, are to be sold lo increase Ihe war fund, says the Canadian Countryman.
That is the advertisement thai will
be displayed to Toronto consumers
this fall. Perhaps there will be far
more tban the specified number of
bushels. One hundred thousand is a
conservative estimate. But what there
are lhe children will have grown for
no reward but lhe Inward sense of
approval which comes from unselfish
And thereby hangs a tale.
In every school In the province
taking part In school fair work un
offer will be made to the children
lhat, judging hy tlieir past record,
will be accepted eagerly. A quantity
of seed potatoes will be given each
one desiring it sufficient io plant a
plot two rods by one in dimensions.
Prizes will lie awarded upon care of
plot, quality and quantity of crop, as
in other classes upon the prize list.
In the fall the potatoes from each
township will be taken to central
poinis in thc various counties, und
Will be shipped to Toronto. There
the crop will be advertised as War
Fund Potatoes, and will be sold as
such. The proceeds will be turned
over by the department of agriculture to aid the soldiers
Last year over l'O.uuo pupils of
rural fairs grew crops or made collections of various kinds under the
direction of the district representatives. Tho number will be greatly increased this year. From these figures an idea of the extent of thc work
may be gained, and tlie quantity of
potaloes to be produced may be calculated.
But the greatest benefit to he derived from this patriotic feature of
production will not come from the
money secured from the sal" of potatoes. 'That will help, and if Kitchener
be not wrong in his analysis of lhe
war situation, will be needed.
But the greatest good will come to
tbe children themselves. To labor in
a great and good cause, to give'unselfishly for thc public weal -those
are ihc principles which must be
taught, and  practical  experience  is
th- best teacher, 'uch work will
���tend to develof, trails of character
that arc ihc foundation upon which
true co-operation rests, and which
lead io improved social and economic
| conditions.
lt will mean more to the right sort
of child lo produce something for the
sake of the empire than to win a
money prize, lt is a step in the right
The West Expanding
Prairie Acreage and Railway Construction Figures
The great importance of railway
construe:ion in lhe prairie provinces
is strikingly depicted in a report recently published with respect to progress" in this regard in Saskatchewan
during the past ten years.
Practically tl.oOu miles of railway
were constructed during the decade
from l!i"a to 1016. Of this, the
greater proportion was built in an
easterly and westerly direction, tbat
in a. northerly aud southerly direction
being composed mainly of branch
lines, built as feeders for the main
"Measured In terms of acreage," the
report declares, "the possibilities suggested by this increased railway mileage arc striking. Taking the increase,
in round numbers, to have been 3,500
miles, and fixing the distance on each
side of the line for profitable farming
at ten miles, a total increase of area
has been made available for occupation under conditkns of advantage
amounting to almost 45,000.000 acres.
Probably not more than one-fourth of
tbis is as yet under cultivation, but
each year will see more of this area
tilled," with proportijuate increase in
the grain yield consequen   thereupon."
A Paradox For the Farmer
Iu some localities land has doubled
in value in the last decade- Where
this is true the farmer must make his
laud produce Just twice as much in
order to realize the same profit, if
he does not do this he is getting poor-
er instead of richer, although bis land
is worth more.

why she should not have gone back to

so very pressing she could stay the

early iii the morning. She had pressing business, tiresome law business, to
tee to in Vork.
"And now I am not going lo keep
you up any longer," she said with a
brilliant smile. "Vou will help me upstairs?    Will you, dear?''
She had risen to her feet and approached Marlon. The girl seemed to
shrink back; it looked as if she was

Marion smiled wearily. She seemed

The others complied. Tehigorsky
slipped away I'm- a while, and on his
return he laid lhe end of a long silk

"Pari of n little scheme," lie said.
"This is one end of tho silk thread,

"They have not done so for a long

we entertain the least suspicion ot

Tehigorsky nodded his approval. He
arranged the silk thread neatly on the

German Torpedoes
According to tin- tat.-si information, iiie newest German torpedoes
hive a range of I'rnin 1,000 to 1,600
yards, instead of carrylug 2."iiilli or
8001b of giineotlon or other high explosive, the instruments have a
charge of but molti or less. Because
of iiie shorter range and lighter
weighl. ihe ordinal'} intricate mechanism is simplified. Indeed, some of
Hie propelling pans necessary iu the
greater torpedo are omitted. Probably
the most, valuable saving is in lhe
time of construction, Tliese torpedoes
are built and completely tested in live
months, while ten months or a year
is required to perfect a long-range instrument. The new torpedo costs
about $2,250. This does not include
the explosive charge. The 'German
long-range torpedo, to.OOo yards, costs
Sia,000, while ihe Intermediate range
torpedo, .1,1100 to 7,000 yards, costs
about $6,500.

Mr. Hodgson had asked for some
planks, which were not worth the
time to talk about, nothing had
been suid to him. He had given

had the consent of the Mayor, and
the bridge foreman wanted them
out of his way at tince, Aid. McKenzie said that Mr, Hodgsom
should either bring the planks back
or pay for them. Aid. Johnston
didn't waul them up there at all.
Mr. E. Kerton said that half the
