Graphite is the Substance With Which

A prim young ludy, fresh from the
realms of higher education, recently
appeared at lhe office of a prominent
manufacturer of lead pencils and presented credentials as a health department investigator and announced her
desire to study conditions in the factory wiih reference to lead poisoning.
Just as "pigs is pigs," so to her lead
was lead. Such llteral-mlndedness is
hardly to he expected of the average
mortal, but if the fair Investigator
hud called to Inquire as to the actual
nature or the product made and just
why il, had to share names Willi soine-
tlilng equally common, but totally different, Uie memory of her visit would

For a number of years the chief supply   of   natural graphite    has   -come

Tlie forestry division of the North

wood samples, leaves, mils, etc., as a
profitable diversion for children. It
publishes a bulletin on I his subjecl iu
connection with a competition the Central Carolina Fair association has ar-
ranged, offering $20 in six prizes for
collections of unlive woods nnd leaves.
In both cases specimens are lo be
named. Competitors iire to be children, under 16 years. The forestry department approves the idea, staling
that tlle child's natural desire for colled ing may furnish one of the readiest avenues for instruction. To secure
Ihe hest results parents should direct
the efforts and teachers should recommend books on the work. It is suggested that a collection of forest
seeds would be an Instructive object

what the seeds of the commonest trees
look like. Thc flowers und leaves of
native shrubs, wild Dowers, ferns,

being well deserving of collection for

War and the Coal Supply
lt is thought that in some countries the coal supply is nearing the
end If this be the case, however,
there is sufficient to go round for
the whole world, but in war time
when blockades exist there can be
no import. It is estimated that tho
world conl reserves amount to 7,397,-
633,000,000 tons.
Of anthracite coals, Asia, with the
grcat Chii.ese fields, has by far the
largest -supply of any of the great
continental divisions, being able to
furnish 407,637,000,000 tons. The
world's production of coal for 1!U0
was about 1,145,000,000 tons. Consequently after allowing for areas
whicli cannot he economically mined,
there should be sufficient coal left
for many hundreds of years, although the present war will cause a
big reduction in coal stocked for
Worms in children work havoc.
Tliese pests attack the tender lining
of the intestines and, if left to pursue
their ravages undisturbed, will ultimately perforate the wall, because
these worms are of the hook variety
that cling to and feed upon interior
surfaces. Miller's Worm Powders will
not only exterminate these worms, of
whatever variety, bin will serve .to repair tlie injury tbey buve done.

Interesting Stories of how the Canning Club Work is Carried on
in the   United  States, and  how Substantial Profits Have
Been Made by Girls in Canning Vegetables and Fruit
(From the Country ilentleman)
There was hardly a busier girl in
the whole statu of 10WB lust year than
l'lioise Parsons, lhe champion in tomato-club work. When sho wasn't canning tomatoes from her tenth of an
ai'ie she was giving a canning demonstration before sonic convention. Here
li   her own  story;
"Before i hail finished my lolS club
work I began to make plans for better work in 11114. I had made some mis-
lakes and meant lo prolii  by ihem.
"I decided uiiio.ig other things that
1 ought in have flue tomatoes for the
cHrly market to catc.i the good prices
Bo early in February I planted an
early variety in three boxes lhat 1
placed in front of lhe soulh windows
el a room In lhe liour.c. lu the latter
pari of March I transplanted Borne of
Uie plants lo small pasteboard boxes
em plain lo each box. This enabled
ine le move Ihem lo lhe open without
disturbing the roots. As soon as it
was warm enough 1 set the rest in a
cold frame, four Inches apart each
way. In April I planted the late
variety in the hotbed.
'The plants in the cold frame and
In llu: pasteboard boxes were very vigorous and had some blooms when 1
transplanted ihem to the open on May
twenty-second. In all, 1 had more than
dim plants.
"1 hoed tbem nfter each rain and
whenever 1 thought they needed it. We
came to Ihis farm curing tbe spring of
11114, which gave us a garden full of
weeds, and I had my hands full keeping these pests under control, lt was
very dry and the plants did not grow
very tail- So 1 decided not to stake
ihem. bul kept up the hoeing until tlie
tomatoes began to ripen.
Iowas Champion in Tomato-Club Work
"I picked my lirst ripe tomatoes on
July ninth. At first 1 got ten cents a
pound lor Ihem, but soon tho price
broke and after September I could not
get more than two cents a pound for
"After school opened I was kept
busy picking. For several weeks it
took me three evenings a week to get
nver thc entire patch. 1 often gathered
as many as ten bushels. On the twelfth
and thirteenth of October 1 had to
pick the green tomatoes���in all, 1,0811
pounds, There was no sale for tliese.
Wo used all we could ut home and
nave many to the neighbors, but still a
great many went to waste, lu all, wo
used 3,381 pounds at home.
"I made a collection ot fruits and
vegetables, canned them and pit tbem
ou exhihii at lhe state fair. The exhibit took a lirst prize. For this exhibit and for my Other club work I
nlso won a Becond and a fourth prize.
1 also canned thirty QtiartB of apples, leu quarts of gooseberries, six
pints of b> ans and u hundred quarts
cf tomatoes.
"During the slate fair I helped lo
r8!orr) nud care for the exhibits sent
in by the various club members. And
at Clarlnda 1 gave a canning demonstration for lhe county teachers' meeting. 1 used my own canner, tomaotes,
tipples, and most of my collection of
canned fruits and vegetables to deni-
utrate how the work is done.
"My expenses in connection with
my tomato work were $15.61. My
profits were $11 r> r.7. besides $211 in
prizes won at the state fair. I have
enjoyed this work; it has enabled ine
not only to earn my own spending
money but to pay my expenses at the
farm camp. Then, too, 1 have built
up a snug lit tlo bank account."
This girl lives at Clarlnda, Page

When 0. II. Hensou, in charge of
club work in the Northern, Central
and Western slates, stopped over one

he taught would bring such results as
materialized   shortly  afterward.

with a  determination to turn out a
canning team that would do credit to

of an acre together. Our patch yielded
one-fourth of the output from the entire farm.
"On July eleventh my tenth of an

Prehistoric Methods
All Civilized Power.; Declare Against
tbe Use of Poisonous Gas in
There can be, and there has been,
on this side of the Atlantic at least,
co public approval of the employment
of these suffocating bombs. They belong to the stone age, to thc days before history was written. They are of
a piece of barbarism which led the
savages to dip the barbs of their arrows in poison���a species of warfare
that sought success by extermination.
To some there does not appear to be
much difference between killing with
gunpowder and with a poisonous gas.
Indeed, if there is any humanity in the
one over the other, it is in the method
that makes for an easy decth.
But the reproach of cruelty lies in
Uie fact that the enemy has no chance
to defend himself. He is put to sleep,
as the Frenchanm says, and then put
to death. Such killing seems to fall
little short of murder.
And this is the view taken generally
by the civilized powers as witness the
action of The Hague conference for
the promotion of peace and the mitigation of lhe horrors of war in 1899 and
later in 1007. The second declaration
made against the UBe of asphyxiating
gas bombs was rubscribed to by every
one of the eleven belligerents in this
war, including Germany.���Buffalo
An English correspondent, assigned
to report the operations in the Dardanelles, describes his arrival at the anchorage of the dlied fleet, in the following words:
Now we round a bend and come in
sight of a portion ot the fleet. The
llrst sight which greets our eyes are
the lighting-tops of the mighty Queen
Elizabeth���the mos' powerful warship
a 11 uat In any waters. Her huge body
is hidden by some low-lying land.
Shades of Nelson: But suddenly we
see it destroyer dashing her way towards us and flying the French flag.
It is bard to believe that within two
days' gentle steaming of where the
Battle of the Nile was fought, a century after Trafalgar, a French destroyer is engaged in protecting England's battleships.
We give our number, and the destroyer retires satisfied, and we made
our way slowly In- Then a torpedo-
boat, this time flying British colors,
dashes up and asks if we know our
way among the rocks and shoals, We
do not and frankly admit the same, so
she gives us a friendly lead. Half an
hour later we are amongst the battleships, cruisers, storeshlps and destroyers. Everything ii. the navy is organized down to the smallest detail.
Our captain sees a comfortable looking, unoccupied berth, and makes for
it to anchor. On a battleship close by
a sailor sits astride the bride and
starts furiously waving little Hags.
These cannot be read from our bride
and both officers and men lack practice at the rapid reading of signals,
so we have to turn the ship and go
back. Th. little Hags tell us that a
berth has been assigned for us at the
other end of the bay. When we are
half way across a pinnace steams up
and two officers come on board who
take charge of the ship and conduct
us personally to our anchorage
This same pinnace, once we are
safely anchored, takes me across to
the Queen Flizahei.li. to visit Ihe admiral.    This, th.  latest .if niir super-
. dreadnoughts, is a revelation, she onlr
curries eight 15-incb guns, and a secondary armameat cf (S-inch. But those
eight make every olher gun you havo
ever seen look ridiculous ami contemptible. Thc gunners say they can
almost land on a penny at 15,000
yards, ever with three-quarter
charges. They have alreauy done soma
wonderful shooting right across the
r.allipoli peninsula, over the low-lying
ground near Qaba Tepe. The grcat
ship has in turn reciived her baptism
of lire, and has beci struck by three
shells, one of which came through the
gun room, but fortunately, all the midshipmen were at their stations, and
no one    was    hurt.    Another   came
. through her unprotected side, high up,
but burst without doing any damage.
: The third, 1 think, hit her fuuuel.
You get a good idea of what a complete command of the sea we have obtained whin you ::ee how we are able
to spare this, our lates and most powerful dreadnought, for the operations
against thc Dardanelles, instead ot
hurrying her off, as soon as completed,
to Sir John .iellieoc somewhere in the
North Sea. Very shortly there will be
four other Queen Elizabeths ready tor
J active service; therefore, If the tier-
m ins ever intend to leave the shelter

so soon-    They have no ships aiioa:

Make Yourself a Neighborhood Leader
The call is for leaders. The call is
for plain farmers and farmers' wives
and farm boys and farm girl to make
themselves leaders in their neighborhoods���leaders for new methods of
farming, and leaders also in new
methods of farm living
The old Individualistic un-Chrisllan
way of living must be forever done
away with. The old doctrine of ".Every
man for himself and the devil take
the bindermost" must give way lo the
new doctrine, "Bear ye one another's
burdens.' Co-operation is the master-
word of the new century. Whole
neighborhoods must learn to work together.���The Progressive Fanner.

Is the Small
Farm Passing
The Banker Should Assist in Helping
|       the  Small   Farmer to  Succena
Some students of the problem baro
concluded that the day of the small
: farmer is ended, and that hereafter
| we must cepeud upou the large cap-
i italist farmer or the farming earner-
��� ation. That would be a pity. Whers
the two have equal opportunities, tie
; small or middle-sized farmer haa
always beaten the big farmer and
the farming corporation in competition. There are only two conditions
under which the big capitalist farmer has won out. The lirst ia when
he has had a large supply ot cheap
labor, such as slaves, or gangs of
coolie laborers, which he could direct and control. The independent
small farmer who work: with hia
own hands has then found himself
compelled to compete with these,
cheap laborers, and he has had a
"hard row to hoe." The other condition is where the big farmer, or tin
big farming corporation has had
some advantage in bargaining. If a9-
can buy his supplies to better advantage, if he can secure capital on
more favorable terms, if he can sell
his produce to better advantage, he
may succeed in competition with the
small farmer. Hut when it comes
to the real work of production, as
distinct from bargi.ining���that is. aa
distinct from hiring labor, borrowing
capital, buying supplies, or selling
produce���tho small farmer ean beat
lilm and eventually run him out of
business. That Is, today, as a producer, lhe small farmer has nn equal.
As a bargainer, he is oft.-n at a d'.s

is the banker's job to see that the
money which Jones borrowed is so
used as to pretty surely provide him
with the money with which to pay
his debt when it is due. By tbis i3
meant that the banker's function is
to finance productive enterprises,
and his first qualification is the
ability to decide what is and what
is not a productive enterprise. That
is what a good investor is. The
banker, especially the country banker, ought to be a good judge of investments. There may be room for a
liner differentiation of functions in
a city, where some bankers may be
financiers, and others mere custodians of funds, to receive deposits, on
the other hand, ani. lend them out on
good security on the other. But ��
country banker must be both.

One occasionally hears a Canadian say that he will take up a rifle
when his countiy is attacked and
not before ; and often the question
is asked if the United States would
possibly permit Germany to invade
Canada. Statements and questions

What ought to be considered by

Letter From the Front
Try an Ad. in The Review
Dear Hodgson,���I guess you'll
wonder who is writing to you from
Egypt, so I'll tell you at once, it is
Leslie Gillmau, one time lumberjack, and uow Private ia the Australian Expeditionary Forces.
I know I wrote you from Borneo
so you know all about my life there
but when the war started my company went "broke," so tbat settle!
things there as far as I was concerned. They paid me two
mouths' salary in advance, and the
amount of my fare to England, but
I decided to stop out there. Spent
a few week's traveling all over the
country, and incidentally most of
my money, so I went over to
Broome, in Northern Australia, the
centre of the largest pearling district in the world. But the war
killed that business, and for a while
I had p. rather rough time of it,
some different from my lordly
existence in Borneo, Finally ten
men were wanted to form a guard
oyer the Gov. Wireless station,
lv.eu that had liad previous military
training, good physical condition,
etc. I had, of course, been in the
Cadet Corps at college, so I was
accepted. JS1.25 a day, and 60c
per day mess allowance, whv it was
positive affluence After the hand to
mouth existence I had been having
Was 5 weeks at that, and then
came the welcome news that the
Government were recruiting men
from the north west, and 20 men
were wanted from Broome, and the
Wireless Guard men had first
choice. You bet I didn't waste
much time, and in due course we
went by boat to Fremctitle, 1200
miles south of Broome. Spent
about 3 months in tne military
training camp at Perth, and then
wen1: to Cairo, After severe training we at last went to the front, in
our case. theGallipoli Peninsula, in
Turkey. I was seven weeks in the
firing line I won't describe things
for I guess you've read how well
the Australians and New Zealand
jers (we are all together 1 are d ring
there. Well, the Turks couldn'i
hit me, though I've had some almighty shaves, smashed my rifle in
my band once ! lint disease is
harder to dodge than bul'ets, and I
got Eysentery; au I hive been cursed ill, was sent back to ihe base
hospital iu Cairn, aiul I .1111 getting
convalescent now, and hope to go
back to the trenches in another
couple of weeks, 'Tis only two
days run from Alexandria to Gal-
lipoli. What I revel 111 is the
heavenly rest and quietness here,
no everlasting roar of artillery, no
bullets, shrapnel, or aroeplanes to
"try" and dodge, and the privilege
of as many cold baths as 1 like.
Vou see, in Ihe trenches we never
take olT our clothes except when
we are releived, an that isn't very
often -sleep in our clothes witli
equipment und 150 pounds of ammunition, sometimes when expecting n night attack, we havenosleep
at all. Waler is beastly scarce
there loo. I washed my face 3
times in 7 weeks, and never shaved
at all. So you can imagine how I
luxuriate in unlimited baths just
now. I shant be r.ony when the
war is over, for modern warfare is
just hell. I have seen some terrible sights, my comrades struck
down beside me, the shells make
such hideous wounds. Curse that |
damned kaiser, (I won't s) e'l the
beast with a capital K.)
This hospital was for uerly a
Sultan's palace, and is a huge
building, and the inter'or still bears
trace of its former magnificence.
The nurses are very good to us.
By Jove, the firing line will teem
funny after this "dolce fae miente"
life. '
The Canadians are doing splendidly in France, I do feel proud of
them. I guess if I had gone back
to Canada I should have be��-n with
them ii:stead of the Australiaus.
Still, its all the same, it will take
some time, but in the end we'll
lick those cursed Germans, the
Turks don't count much, we've
got them on the run now, they do
hate the bayonet, they won't face
it at all. Personally, I think the
latter is a clumsy weapon, I would
rather have a bouble bitted axe, but
I suppose that the powers that be
know what is best for us. I believe
that they have started to use
poisonous gases in the en-
insula bad luck to the blasted
fiends. I would like to have the
Kaiser (damn him) iu a room all
to myself for a while. I'd guarantee he wouldn't die very quickly !
Well, I wonder how things are
on Vancouver Island, you must
write me a long letter and give : c
all the news etc, Is your sen with
the Canadians?
Hoping that your homestead is
progressin* favorably, and that
yourself and family are in the best
of health, and remember me to any
of nly old friends, George Cliffe,
for instance.
Vours very sincerely
E. Leslie Gillmau.

So Blartled was Geoffrej iimi he
felt thc moisture spun from every
pore like a rash llul, fully conscious
of his danger, In- suppressed the cry
that rose lo his lips, nor did he move
as lie felt a thick cloak thrown over
lion. Perhaps he had been testing
Geoffrey's courage and resolution;
perhaps ihc danger had deepened unexpectedly.
Presently the light of the lantern
popped up again, in response to some
subtle signal, mul onee more the conspirators moved on to the vault above.
Tehigorsky lifted his head.
"Where arc they going'.'" Geoffrey
Tehigorsky responded with one or
his diabolical chuckles.
"They imagine lhat they are going
into the castle," he said. "But they
are nol going to accomplish that pint
of the programme.

do no wrong. Why, then, should her
good name lie dragged in the mire?
"Vou are so good, so good to me."
Marion murmured. "Go before they
become alarmed at your silence and
leave me here. Sny that you saw nothing. And when the house is quiet
I shall make my way back again."
(leoffrey retired upwards without
further words. In the basement of
the castle he found Tehigorsky and
Ralph Ravenspur.
"They managed to elude you?" nsked the former.
Geoffrey pointed to the ugly bruise
on tho side of his head.
"Yes," he said, "ihey both got
away. But for this bit ot an accident fighting in the dark 1 might have
captured the dusky conspirator,"
"Rather you had uot, on the whole,'
Ralph said. "Something gave llioin
the alarm us they reached the passages. Of course their idea vyas to
murder some or till ot us in our beds,
anil our idea was to take them in the
act. But. they got the alarm and vanished. One of lhe fellows attacked
uie in the shrubbery just before dark,
but l fancy he will not do it again."

But lirsi he would trj to ascertain if

word, "Tomorrow," closed .the door

Farm is Place of Opportunity
Speaking before the experimental
farm superintendents recently assembled in convention at Ottawa, Mr.
George 11. Clark, Dominion seed commissioner, sounded a note which is of
special interest at. the present, crisis
in Canadian agriculture. In prefacing
his address he said: "Unfortunately
farming during the last ten years or
more has been less attractive to young
men of good ability and to capital than
other industries in urban centres. Tho
problem of farm labor has been an
exceedingly perplexing one and in consequence farm systems have been
modified so as to require the minimum
of labor for the maximum yield of net
returns. City industries have completely outbid the farm in the matter
of labor, and it is probably true that
if the opportunities in the city looked
brighter during tbe past ten years, tlie
next ten years, in my judgment, assuredly belong to the farm, and the
sooner they realize that tlie better for
themselves and for all concerned.
The department ..f education of ihe
province of Saskatchewan will hold a
summer course of instruction in agriculture at tlie provincial university at
Saskatoon. A course in household
science will be held at Regina. Instruction in music and physical train-
will probably be. included in the household science course. These courses
will be held during the comparatively slack season in farm work, lo enable as many farmers' sons and daughters as possible to take advantage of
the instruction.

Care of Cattle
As Much Attention Should be Paid to
Yearlings as  Older Cattle.
Of all the cattle kind upon the
farm, the yearling's lot is usually
about the worst. Tbis is too, often)
true when times are good. When!
prices are high, and when feed is!
cheap. When this is true, then il is
a case of force the feed upon the
older animals and get theni into 1
marketable condition. Let the yearl-|
ings take care of themselves. When
ihe opposite is true, then it is too often a case of mailing the yearlings
stand Ibe worst of it. When milk Is
high, it is a case of force the cow and
starve the yearling.
This is one of the biggest kind of
mistakes. All experiment goes to
show that gains may br more economically made upon yearlings than with
olher entile. It costs less to feed a
yearling enough lo keep it alive lo begin with, and tbe rest goes lo make
beef or growth. It doesn't pay to neglect the (alf when it is a yearling,
ever expecting to make it up again to
the calf or to yourself.

Canadian Grain Will be Entered
It has been i.nnouuced by the Exposition authorities at San Francisco,
that Canadian grain and alfalfa, forming part of the Canadian Pacific Railway exhibit there, will be considered
eligible for awards. To appreciate this
decision it should be pointed out that
this grain was not. originally entered
in competition, but was used for display purposes, as part of the company's exhibit, anil the fact that thc
exposition authorities have decided
to consider this grain when awarding
prizes is a very great compliment to
it, and to those districts in which it
was grown.

made during the last generation.
ln the Crimean war 15.31 per cenl
of the Fre-ch wounded died from their
injuries. In the Freiuh-ltuliar-Austriai

The "Dominion'  of Canada
Wa are accustomed to take the ex-
i pression of the "Dominion" of Canada
j for granted;  but the original of that
somewhat unusual word is known to,
very few.   When at length the great
scheme  of  Sir  John  Macdonald   was
realized, and the nine provinces grouped themselves together inlo one great
confederation, a serious difficulty was
presented by the choice of a suitable
name.   For'a time almost a deadlock
At length one old member of parliament rose from his seat and told his
colleagues that he had read in bis
Bible that very morning the words:
"His dominion shall be from the one
sea to the otber." Accordingly he suggested that Canada should be known
as the Dominion, or God':: Land. Tlie
suggestion seized upon the hearts and
imaginations of those present and it
was promptly acted upon.���Vail Mall

The Motto of tbe Merchants Bank of
The statement of the Merchants
Bank of Canada which i.s published in
this issue, and whle is well worthy of
close study, shows clearly that the
management have strained every effort to prepare this institution for any
sudden call, and now with over twenty-one millions of actual cash assets,
and an increase of one-third over
last, year's good showing of "quick assets," it faces any temporary financial
disturbance with unruffled front.
Yet this has been done without
materially affecting commercial loans
in Canada, with, 'considering the
shrinkage in general business, cannot
be considered to show a serious drop,
the reduction being only about 10%���
while loans on stocks, etc., show a
slight Increase In Canada but a decrease of almost two millions outside
of Canada.

tiie fact that while profits have fallen
off, yet. the usual dividends have been
earned and paid, must lie a satisfaction, while every one will rejoice at
the generally healthy condition revealed by the bank's statement-
The management have shown that
they are not mere fair weather pilots,
and while they have reaped the bene-
iits accruing from their past wisdom of
accumulating a' good reserve against

been able without any dislocation of

cedently strong showing, one which

The Peril of Venice
With Italy in tlie war a spot dear to
the tourist, the traveller and the lover
of the artistic and romantic is in peril-
Venice, of all the Italian coast towns,
is the most vulnerable. When she was
mistress of the sea and her merchantmen sailed the waters of the known
world, while her colonies spread over
the Levant and her warships humbled
tho Turks, the lagoons and the long
sandbars were effective protection.
But today these waters are too shallows for the Italian fleet and her protectors must come from the nearest
naval base at Taranto to save her from
the modern long-range guns of the
Austrian ships that could attack from
Vola, less than 150 miles across the
Adriatic���New York Sun.
No Depletion of Live Stock
The live stock commissioner of the
province of Aiherta says that notwithstanding the high prices paid l'or
grain since the beginning ot the war
there has been little or no depletion
of the amount of live stock being
raised by farmers and ranchers. An
exception may be made in the case of
hogs, which respond very quickly to
market conditions, but the hog industry also now shows increasing importance. All over the province the
horse, cattle, and sheep industry is
continuing to grow in importance.

Weeds could not readily be kept iu
4, No field is left in hay for

The records show that the second
