what lie was about. There uns
someone directing the useless energy of the crowd.
A tall, dark, burly follow, with a
heavy moustache. By the light of
the lanterns the Squire caught sight
of Iiini. Not a gentleman���that was
obvious in the dim light, and to the
Squire's agitation. \n old soldier,
probably. He looted as though he
bad been  drilled.
Already they wcrc lifting the front
part of thc char-a-banc. There ivcre
splinters of it all over the road.
Other helpers wore carrying the injured, the dead, and the dying, to Ihu
side of the Hollow, laying ihem out
on the grass.
The Squire glanced rij: what was
being done. There were plenty of
workers, and iheir number was being
steadily augmented, lie had no time
lo wonder whore they had sprung
rom���out of the night and ibe fields,
lis work lay elsewhere.
He seized upon an old rustic who
was bobbing about with a lantern
aiml.-ssly and steadied him.
"You stand thero, my man," lie
said, "and show me a light Iill I scc
which oi these people ate dead and

lie put bis hand on llu lantern and

I fellow!     Nothing to be 'done  there.

Tbe man who carried lhe lantern
was very old. The light falling on
the old purple hand with its knotted
veins revealed the fact without the
evidence of the piping old voice. It
was afterwards, when the horror was
over, that the Squire recalled the
things llic old man had been saying
which ��� he had not known that be

Norwegian Captain. Grv-es Account 'of J
German Raider's Work
A Norwegian captain in his evidence in a shipping action in the
British Admiralty Court gave, incidentally, a graphic account of a
German submarine raider's work in
the Channel,
The witness was Captain Anton
Amundsen, and, be stated ih.it irhen
be was six miles off lhc CasquetS
with tbe steamer Rabbi on Oct. 21
last year, he was stopped by a German submarine with tlie order,
"Leave llic ship immediately." When
the crow in thc boats made for a
sailing vessel the submarine headed
them off and sank llic sailing vessel,
hi tlle same way she sank a second
sailor arid also a steamer. Finally a
Britisii transport came up, and the
Britisher and the submarine. -ired upon laeb other . across the tossing
boats, the sea being very rough. The
British vessel eventually drove t're
submarine off and ir disappeared,
Sir Samuel Evans; Did they give
you any reason for sinking you?
Captain: They asked where I came
from and what I was carrying. I

i'ainJin_ Farm Implements
The painting of farm implements
tor their protection and preservation
has apparently received very little
consideration by Canadian farmers,
if one may judge by the Information
secured by the Commission of Conservation in tbe survey conducted on
-GO finrjii in each of four counties in
Ontario. In Waterloo, not one farmer vihcs painted bis Implements was
lound among the hundred, in Carle
ion only one, jn Northumberland
three, and in Dundas. eleiren. And vet
paint is su absolute essential if the

Indigestion Resulted
From an Inactive Liver
lhe Bowels Became Constipated and the Whole Digestive
System Upset
With many people, constipation be-
tcerue:-, a habit, And it is a dangerous
habit which is certain sooner or 1'ter
lo cause serious disease.
"Daily movement of the bowels" is
the first and most important rule of
health. When tbe liver becomes tor-
t��d the flow of bile into the intestines is stopped, and the bowels become constipated, But vou can
teadily overcome this condition by
Using Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver I'ills.
There is no treatment obtainable
which so promptly awakens the activity of the liver and bowels - and
thereby cornels derangements of
thr digestive system.
Mrs. Herbert Doherty, of .Beaver
Brook, Albert Co., N.E., writes: "1
can truthfully say that Dr. Chase's
Kidney-Lii/er Pills are a greai medicine for constipation. 1 have suffered from constipation ever since I can
remember, but gol to using Dr.
Chase's kidney -I. in r I'ills and was
so benefitted that 1 begat) to study
this malady. I found tbat the indigestion resulted from a bad case of
inactive liver, and as soon as i got
Ihc liver working right I didn't have
any stomach trouble or indigestion. I
cannot praise this medicine loo
highly, and would advise anyone suffering from i'ldigestion or constipa-
tion to use Dr, Chase's Kidney-Liver
Pills, My husband also claims that
tbese pills have done him more good
than any medicine he ever used. You
are at liberty to use this letter."

Study Your Soil
To Secure Maximum Crops a Know
ledge of the Land Is Necessary
Thc soil i- thc farmer's capital ���
his workshop. Upon it is founded
the whole business of farming, and
upon its fertility will depend in large
measure tlie success of thc farmer's
operations. Too often il is not given
tbe proper care, nor is sufficient intelligence exercised in its use.
The plant derives certain substances necessary to its development from
tbe soil; the mosl important of these
arc nitrogen, phosphoric acid and po-
Ush, 'Uie farmer should know whether his soil contains these in sulli-
cient quantities to meet tbe requirements of a maximum crop providing
good cultivation is given, or if be is
not getting satisfactory yields, he
should find the cause. No two farms
havc been treated and cropped in
past years in exactly the same way,
wliicli means that even adjoining
farms may bc entirely different so
far as soil requirements are concerned. To bring it up to a state of profitable productiveness one farm may
need a rotation different from the
other, or a different fertilizing treatment. Bulletins, books, experts and
governments help thc farmer in
many ways, but they cannot bc expected to furnish every detail in a
manner to fil his every need. The
farmer himself should learn ivhat his
crops require, learn whal his soil contains, learn what is lacking in bis
soil, learn how to supply tbe defici-
' eneies, and then he may safely look
for increased yields and greater profits. It involves study, but '.lie farmer
must work out many of his own problems on his ov.'i farm under his own
conditions, by trial, by test, and by
experiment,���F. C. N,

Cleaner Food
Much of the inventive genius nowadays is centred ou devices that will
do away with thc handling of food.
A man bas invented a machine which
removes the Chinaman's hands from
canned salmon that goes into homes
practically everywhere. Il is known
as the "iron chink." It will do the
work of fifty Chinese and clean 30,000
fish in a day. The salmon is cleaned,
chopped, packed in cans with fat and
lean properly..- balanced, weighed,
sealed, and cooked by machinery. A
Los Angeles man has invented a
printing press to be installed in bakeries which prinls wrappers in colors and wraps the bread without
handling,

Willows from Cutti.gG
Willows root readily from cuttings
of tbe young wood. The cuttings can
bc made almost any time in the
growing season and sei firmly in
good soil and kept nioisl will root
readily. A Rood plan is to make the
cuttings in the autumn, after the tree
from which the cuttings are taken
has dropped ils foliage. Make cuttings about a foot long and set them
two inches apart in trenches five
inches deep in lhe open ground. Firm
the soil well about the cuttings by
treading on it with the feet. Ir the
spring thc cuttings will take root and
leaf out early in the season. When
well rooted they can bc transplanted
into-nursery rows or set out where
they are to remain permanently,

Butter Production
On thc Prairica
The quantity of butter shipped tn
Vancouver during the New Zealand
export season, which ruled .Tune .11,
was only _13 tonr, as against 1,|I85
ton:, during tlie corresponding period
in 1914-1S. The largest quantity of
butter imported inlo Canada during
any one year was in 1913, when :i
total of 3,567 tons was received, most
of which came from New Zealand,
Tbe falling-off in Imports from
New Zealand is due to increasing
production on thc prairie?. It is ex
pected that the Prairie Provinces, besides supplying British Columbia

ST. VITUS DANCE
CAN BE EASILY CURED
ATonic (or the Blood and Nerves
With Rest All Thut Is
Needed
Many a child has been called awkward, "has been punished in school
foi nol lceeriiiifj still or for rlroppin-l
tilings, when thc trouble wis really
St. Vitus dance. This trouble maj
appear at any age, but is most oft.n
met between llic; ayes of six and
fourteen, The most frequent cause
of the disease is poor blood, arrgrrv
vated by indoor confinement, or men
tal strain al school. Under these
conditions the blood fails io carry
nourishment to the nerves and the
child begins to show listlcssness and
inattention. Then it becomes restless
and twitching of thc muscles and
jerking of the limbs and body follow.
A remedy tbat cures St. Vitus dance,
and cures it so thoroughly that no
lrr.ee of the disease remain.:, is Dr,
Williams Pink Pills, which renew
the blood, thus feeding and strengthening the starved nerves. This is the
only way to cure the trouble, and
parents "should lose no time in siv-
[ng this treatment if their child
seems nervous or irritable. Mrs. Wm.
A. Squires, Caiiniiigton, Ont., say;;
"My only daughter, now fourteen
years of age, was troubled lor several
years with St, Vitus dance, She was
so bad that at times she would lose
control of her limbs and her face and
eyes would be contorted. We had
medical advice and medicine, but ll
did not help her. In fact we thought
the trouble, growing worse, and finally we had to take her from school.
About a vear ago we. began giving
bet Hr. Williams' Pink Vills, and by
the time she had taken five, hoxes she
was completely cured, and is now a
fine, healthy girl. I firniiy believe we
owe this to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
and are very grateful for her restoration to perfect health."
You can get these pills from any
dealer in medicine or by mail at 50
cents a box, or six boxes for $_.50,

laud iiini spare minutes could be

greater extent than ever. We indulge too much in tinned products
that should be exported instead of
being consumed here, aud in place
of which ficsh fruits and vegetables
could and should be grown. Tinned goods are advancing all the
time, and are dear to buy, while
their use i.s not economical, Because we grow too lltlhr lord we
are at the mercy of food "barons"
and food handlers, wherefore let
us buy our seeds, and will prizes
with the results, incidentally contesting honors with winners of
years' standing at tlie next show.
Our new council might well show
its interest by giving the encourag-
nient which should emanate from
our city fathers, We venture to
sug4est that the city council pre
pare a list of vegetables to lie grown
in Courtenav. for wliicli they will
give the prizes. This would naturally help tlie Society, and encourage our citizens to grow good

The monthly returns fpr December again show the value ,->f tiie
forest as a source of public revenue
the amount paid into the provincial
exchequer for the mouth being
$145,870, The total scale of saw-
log-r. etc. amounted to 133,759,169
ft. and timber sales recorded during December, comprising over
twelve million feet of timber on the
tracts dealt with, will bring in an
estimated revenue of $24,236. The
importance of safeguarding tbe forest resoMrce from lire and trespass
cannot be exaggerated,

It is said lhat the government
will re-organize the provincial police, aud that the preference will lie
given to returned soldiers, when the

Czar of Htiaaia
Is Richest Man
I Income Said to Be a Million nr More
Dollars a Day
Nol Rockefeller, Rothschild, Morgan nor Krupp. file richest man in
lhe world is no mere rn il Vl i million -
; aire, whose wealth can be estimated
i by income tax experts. He is the
l.'r.ar of Russia, and no man living
knows Ilia wealth, llis income is said
to bc it million or so dollar.' a day,
which enables one lo estimate lough*
ly something like ten to thirty billions as the sum of his possessions,
ami this is largely guesswork.
As head of tlio church, he controls
ihc church properly, amounting lo
billions, He owns in his name 130
million acres of hind, comprising
timber, mines and agricultural lands
sufficicul to furnish food for even
such a nation, He receives from the
state, or government, a salary of 10
million dollars a year.
The, Czar pays more than his own
expenses. He maintains his palaces
nud royal residences, a hundred or
so, and lakes care of the cosl of the
households of all the royal personages of the nation, 'this involves
some 30,1)00 servants, 300 automobiles, 5,000 horses and a small army
of soldiers and secret service men.
Plainly, he needs Ihe money,
From the unties of Siberia he derives n royalty upon everv ounce of
mincr.:l mined. The agricultural
lands arc rented and lie forests are
being worked up into lumber.

Wear Those Comfortable Old
Shoes This Winter
And Show Your Patriotism and Thrift
���Inexpensive Rubbers or Over- ���
shoes Will Protect Your Feet
The spectacular ri.se in leather prices lias a significance far beyond its painful effect on ow personal
expenses���it is becoming a serious matter for the
Government and cur soldiers at ihc Front.
'lire- war is using up lcatlur much faster than
it i.- being produced. Tbe reserve, particularly of
high-grade leather, is steadily diminishing. If the
soldiers arc to havc plenty for shoes and equipment,
and if the Government is to be able t<i procure it at
prices within reason, civilians must economize on it
to ihe limit.
This is the reason well-worn shoes are no longer
a discredit, but an honor���an evidence that the wi arcr
puts patriotism bcfi rc pride, thrift before vanity.
Fortunately (he prevailing moderate prices of
rubbers and overshoes make this practicable. In
most cases ihey cost little more than before the war,
and a very small expenditure for cither will protect
tin' obi shoes perfectly tlirougli the winter, keen the
feet dry and comfortable, and guard the wearer's

of wearing rubber boots or ''rubbers and socks" for
working around the stables, in the woods, or in lite
fields during the cold, wet weather. Not thc least of
their advantages is their cleanliness around the house.
Wearing rubbers or overshoes is one of the rare
eases where virtue brings its own reward, for in
addition to the very considerable money saving, what
is there thai affords such solid comfort as a well-
worn pair of shoes?

Two great forces make for the continuance of the struggle. One is the.

that the military power and the military idi.ils, the Imperial arrogance
of Germany, must be destroyed, In
Germany the chief motive for continuing the Struggle is the desperate
need of the militarists and Imperialists to save themselves, lho dread of
