Germany's Nemesis
German Militarism  Already  Defeated by the Economic Forces
Ranged Against It
The German rush into Northern
Italy is a showy political success. It
will inflate pride and inspire the
lusty singing of "Detitschland uber
Alles," hut it will not fill German
stomachs, nor v.i'l it furnish German factories wilh lhc raw material for whii'.h lhcy nre starving.
German militarism is not merely discredited, il is already defeated by Uneconomic forces ranged against it.
Germany has brought military victory wiih financial min. The kaiser
has ridden iu triumph through Brussels, Belgrade, Warsaw and Btlkha-
rest. What does lhat avail him
I while an unbreakable wall of steel
bars his way in the heart of,France,
and while Great Britain and the
United Slates hold the ocean roads?
With every month nf war Germany's
ruin musl become more assured.
Militarism is already oul at elbows.

Rose From the Ranks
General Verkhovsky, who was the
last of thc distinguished soldiers
who served as ministers of war in
Russia, was popular with llie army
owing in all probability to Ihe fact
tllM he had served in the ranks. In
���lis early years, as lhc 'result of some
conflict wilh ituhority, he left the
military college and entered the
army as a private, in which capacity
lie vn nt through Ihe Miiuchiiiian
Campaign, He was a simple colonel

and when Rumania joined thc allirs

The Lesson Written in   the    Italian
Iim even if a supreme disaster has
been  escaped  in   Italy  it is essential
Imi  im allied statesman and no allied patriot should mistake the lesson
there   written,     Ily   every influence
that she can exert Germany is    attacking behind the lines and in    the
1 ranks of her enemies.   'I'he Anarchists, ihe Socialists, ihc Clericals, ihe
I Intellectual   and    the ignorant,   the

part. Germany has lost ihe war so
far as ii is a military question, She
canol defeat ibe anuii s of her
enemies. She can win only by corrupting the people behind lhe armies
and portions of ihc armies themselves. Russian and Italian events
should serve the greater end; they
should be linal evidences of lhc way,
and lhe one way, that the war may
be losl. If Ihey do serve this end

Persistent Asthma. A most distressing characteristic of lhis dcbili-
aling disease, is the persistence with
which recurring attacks come to sap
away strength and leave lhc sufferer
in a stale of almost continual exhaustion. No wiser precaution can
be taken than lhat of keeping at hand
a supply of Dr. J. D. Kellogg's Asthma Remedy, famous as the most potent remedy for eradicating the disease from the tender air passages.
An Appreciation
Vice-chairman of American  Railway
Advisory Commission Pays
Compliment to C.P.R.
For the last two years thc Canadian Pacific Railway, in connection
with the Pacific steamers of the Canadian Pacific Ocean Services, has
carried a very large proportion of
lhc passengers from the United
States to Russia, and as these passengers have included a great many
American railroad men, who have
been surprised at thc excellence of
the service, a remarkable volume of
trade is developing, greatly to the
benefit of Canada itself. Among
these passengers was lhe American
railway advisory commission, consisting of the leading railway experts of the United States, who travelled from Chicago lo Vancouver,
and thence lo Yokohama via thc
Empress of Asia. Mr. Henry Miller,
vice-chairman of lhis highly important commission, lias written Vice-
President G. M. Bosworth a letter of
deep appreciation, in which, after referring lo many individual courtesies
along the roulc, hc remarks: "You
have good reason to bc proud of
your organization and service, aud
we take this method of thanking you
heartily for your kindness and courtesy."

What the Navy Has Done
Interesting Figures   Concerning Exploits of Navy Given by

Tn lhc rotirsc of his eulogy of the
services in the house of commons
recently the Prime Minister slated
lhat since the beginning of the war
there have been transported across
the seas under lhc navy's protection!
13,1100,000 men; 2,000,000 horses,:
25,0110,000 Ions of explosives antl
supplies; 50,000,000 Ions of coal, oil
and other fuel; 113.000,000 tons of
food and other materials.
Our naval losses have been only
3,500 men, of whom 2,700 lost llieir
lives through the action of the enemy.
The original expeditionary force
numbered 160,000 men. Today the
expeditionary force was over 3,000,-
000, khc creation of which was "probably thc greatest feal of military organization in lhc  world."

Trans-Atlantic Air Voyages
Before lhc war is over, America
will be delivering its aeroplanes at
thc front in Europe by having them
fly across the Atlantic in flocks, is
the opinion of Capronl, famous Italian inventor of llu; big machine of

Capronl said recently iu Paris lhat
hc expected one of his machines to
cross the Atlantic before long, and
that llighls of squadrons across Ihe
ocean would become  common  later.

Machine Gun as a
Del. nee Weapon
Single One  Can  Easily Hold  Up a
Regiment   Under Favorable
The presenl war has proven the
machine gun the greatest defensive
weapon yet developed, A single one
eau easily hold up an entire battalion, und iiudii favorable lircuui
stances nn entire regiment,
The full value oi ihe machine gun
was apparently appreciated by Germany before the war began to a
much greater extern ihan by any of
llu other European armies, With
the outbreak of hostilities each nc
live and reserve regiment of the
German ami) had -K machine guns
with ample hi reserve to replace losses.
Since th. ii i ici'iuany bas maintained a steady program of increase in
their number. 'Inwards the end of
191-1 Germany had undertaken to
equip everj uuii engaged on the
front with machine guns.
lu 1915 llle number oi these lo
each regiment had been increased
from six io nine, A lillle later the
number was again increased lo 12.
Following thc French attack iu
Champagne of .September, 1915, every German battalion was equipped
with six machine guns each, increasing thus the tolal of each regiment
to 18.
Now Germany is rapidly completing a program lhal will give each
regiment _-l machine guns.
Only one protection eau be offered thc infantrymen againsl the thousands and hundreds of thousands of
losses Lhat these guns can inflict and
iiini is nu artillery preparation exceeding anything which the    present
���I.  Canada and thc    United  States  V':ir bas yet developed.    Before    in
can  only  .pan-  the needed   supplies  Jmili-yiiien leap    over    the    trenches
by reducing their ov u   consumption
by al least 20 per cent.
5.  If    Canada,    rind      lhc    United
Stales should fail to make up the allies' deficiency of food, the soldiers
would havi to go short and the
whole allied causg mighi be endangered.
6. Individual effort, individual saving of Individual spoonsful of Hour,
individual economy in the use of
bread and flour and individual substitution of other cereals for wheat
alone can save lhe situation and give
to the men at lhc front the support
which Ihey musl have.
A New Industry
Camphor is being grown ill Florida. Since lhc outbreak of the war,
it has been difficult lo procure camphor from Formosa, from which
place the. previous .apply had almost
entirely come, There are already
large plantations being devoted lo
the growing of this tree, which, it
lias been proven, grows well in Florida. The largest plantation is reported to be the Slatsuma plantation
of 2i00ii acres in Putnam county.
One in Twenty-one Owns Auto
The number of registrations of
automobiles in Saskatchewan has
uow reached 32,458, This means
that llicrc are the same number of
cars in the province, or, placing thc
population at 700,000, one ear to every 21 of the population. The fact
that mosl of the ear owners are
farmers is a sign of the agricultural
prosperity of the province.
thousands of cannon must rain down
hundreds of thousands of shell:- on
every inch of ground to be attacked
until not a single spot has escaped
where a machine gun might remain
This artillery preparation musl not
only bc mi a scale to cover every
inch ol the surface of lhc ground
bin must be of an intensity to destroy steel and concrete shelters,
yards below tho surface. A single
machine gun left intact 111 one of
these shelters can be mounted to
the surface after, the infantry had
left iis trenches and inflict hundreds
if not thousands of losses.
With the artillery preparation
which the French have perfected
lhcy have demonstrated that it is
mathematically possible to wipe out
every machine gun before a single
Infantrymen  shows his head.
With tin French method and with
sufficient guns and shells, American
infantry can face the German's new
machine gun concctration with
practical immunity.
But it means that America must
have thousands of guns and millions
of shells.���By Henry Wood, with the
French Armies.

Anti-Submarine Bombs
Explode at Any Depth Is Claim  of
As one method of dealing summarily with Germany's U-boats, an
American inventor has proposed to
use bombs of a special type, designed lo explode at any desired depth
when thrown Into the sea, says the
Popular Mechanics magazine In an
Illustrated article. The missile would
be dropped from air craft or submarine chasers when an enemy boal
,v_S sighted beneath the water or
seen to submerge. The bomb is
connected by a lighl cable to a buoyant chamber that floats on ihc surface. As it sinks, the line, which is
wrapped around ii, unreels until a
predetermined depth i.s reached. The
jerk that then occurs actuates the
detonator and discharges tiie explosive. When submerged at any considerable depth, a submarine is under
an enormous pressure. An explosion
such as lhat of a high power bomb,
occurring in close proximity lo il
would cause it lo collapse.

l to bc more of it, and there would be
I more of it if lhc censorship were rc-
jhixed.    ll is time to allow the    full
' story to be told of    the    campaign

The war put into mv soul something lhat it has never harbored

turned me from a mild pacifist into
a violent advoeate of preparedness.
Fear of what might happen lo business made mc lose move chances in
these three years Ihan ever before in
my life. And recently there was added another fear, the fear of dealh.
The fear of God. I remember hearing once in church. Is lhc beginning
of wisdom. Perhaps lhal is true.
Perhaps I needed lhis war lo jog me
oni of my comfortable, unquestioning

any self-dceeplion. I have feared,
fear terribly even now, the possible
death of my boy. I visited him al
ihe camp only a few Sundays ago.
They let him conic over io lhe hotel where 1 was Slaying for a few
hours and slay  with  llie,
Virtue is ils own reward, I said lo

.sou? llis virlue has led him to volunteer his life in the service of a
great ideal. Suppose he loses _ his
life? In what way has his virtue
been rewarded? If Nero and the
Christian martyrs go down to the
same oblivion, if the robber of widows and orphans and his victims are
sank by the same submarine, what is
the. answer?
Argue about it as we will, no man
can sl nml amid the ruins of lhc San
Francisco earthquake or in front of
a casually lis! in Europe and make
himself believe thai i very human being gels his exact deserts here on
this earth. In spite of all armimenl.
iuslicc cries oul for some place and
lime of adjiis'lmentj reason insists
that life, ending lure so senselessly,
must be onlv an episode in a greater
and  more  reasonable  whole.
T recently beard a British armv
officer quoted as saying lhal he bad
never seen a simr'e man in tin- trenches who questioned immortality .
Face to face wiih death, no man can
convince himself thai death is tin-
end. Even Hllxlev, who in his strong
manhood, when his pulses v.ere balling, con1*1 welch calmly lhe thought
of extinction, found the Great Hope
forcing itself inlo his soul as he
dr-w nearer tin- end.
If al' lhe truth were known I
doubt it" anv ninu, since lhe creation

I began reading books on iinnior-

I discovered lhat not all the greatest
men of science, by any means, bad
rejected the Great Hope. Thev were
divided, even as oilier men, half on
one side, half ou thc other. Huxley,
lo be sure, died in agnosticism, not
daring to sheathe his soul in faith,
But William James, and Kepler, and
Sir Oliver Lodge, and William Osier, and scores of others, knowing
all that Huxley knew, with the same
facilities for judgment and research,
these refused to disbelieve. 1 stretched out my bands lo these sturdy
champions eagerly.���From lhe American Magazine.

Fight Against Weariness
One Road   Leads    to    Victory,    the
Other to Defeat
Wc must fight against weariness.
It is unworthy of us. We must neither write, nor tall., nor think about
being weary ti'.l we havc won the
war. Wc al home have otic clear
duly, namely, lo support by every
means in our power, moral and material, our sons, who arc bearing
themselves so heroically before the
enemy. They arc not weary and we
have no right lo be weary cither.
"Wc arc at the parting of the ways."
Onc road leads to victory, thc other
to defeat. These arc the only two
roads open to us, and wc havc gol
to choose between theni. All talk
about a third road through Stockholm, Rome or elsewhere is a device of the enemy to save his own
neck. Weariness won't help us to
victory. Courage, resolution, endurance will. Did Pitt lire after Ausler-
litz, or Wellington after Burgos?
Nay, but are thc French tirin-? now?
���From the London Observer.
An inventor is a genius who discovers a lot of things that are already patented.
It  is  well    thai  tbe  allies    should
understand that when phrases like
"Peace with reconciliation)" and
"Disarmament," are rife in Germany,
they mean no more ihan that for lhc
time being, the fortune of war is not
smiling on Germany. So it was a
few months ago, when on July 1" the
German Reichstag, by a large v
'only, passed tin- now famous
resolution. So is ii nol now,
thanks to lhe revolution in Kussia
and the German peace propaganda iu
Italy, the Germans have been successful in striking two great military
blows. Streseiiiaun, a leader of the
national liberals, speaking al Dresden on October '20 "rejoiced thai a
political situation appeared to have
been reached where evi ry obligation
of the government to ihe peace resolution oi lulv 19 had ceased." The
Kolnilchc Zcitung of October 27 devoted a leading article to German
colonial troops and came to the conclusion that triumphant Germany
should extend her system of universal conscription and military training
lo lhe whole of Africa. "The experience of this war," said llu. article in question, "has shown thai
East Africa natives, if sufficiently
trained and led by Europeans, make
efficient soldiers, while lhe Southwest African is an even better soldier given similar circumstances, In
future lo prevent her colonies from
being overrun by other peoples, Germany must utilize lo lhe full ihese
sources of man-power, Such of these
unlives as have hitherto not been
subject to Germany musl come under her sway, while all foreign colonies which have made war againsl the
German colonies must become German property."
Tin I-riiiidenblatl, of October 29
declared lhal "unless all lhe indications arc false, Italy will share the
fate of Roumania, Serbia and Russia. Italy must expiate lhe guilt of
her unscrupulous, faithless and rapacious stati -mi ii."
Tin- Norddeurcchc Allgciucinc Zcitung has been publishing a semi-official review of tin operations on the
west front written iu language lhal
reminds one oi llu- phasi of madness
iu wliicli the patient imagines himself to be emperor of the world. One
phrase may be selected from many.
"Hc who is a gootl German knows
that hc i.s as one wilh lhc High Command and their great aim, which
will, moreover, be attained, victory
on all fronts, on laud and sea, or, in
other words of old Colonel Kott-
witz���"In the (lust wilh all the enemies of the Brandenburg."
Even lhe Austrian papers have
been infected, and it may bc sus^
pected that one of the chief reasons
for the huge onslaught on Italy, was
not so much to attack Italy as to
encourage Austria. "Today," wrote
the Austrian Freindcnblatt, on October 31, "after more than three years
of terrible war, Roumania and Serbia are annihilated, Russia is shattered and Italy is pierced lo the heart.
The tremendous importance of our
alliance with Germany will now be
obvious to the dullest mind, and everyone must now recognize that the
main pillar of our policy must bc the
alliance with Germany. The Vienna
Extrablatt of the same date maintained that the central powers will determine by the sword the course of
events. "It is their alliance which
has reaped the victory, and it is
they who will dictate the new order
of things for the welfare even of
those who now resist them."
Count von Reventlow, as was to
bc expected spreads himself and Germany slill more widely as a result
of the  Italian successes',
Writing in the Deutsche Tagcszci-
tung of October .11, he said: "We
confine ourselves today to a general
Statement of our aims���that, for the
future, an active Adriatic policy on
the part of Italy shall be made cont-
plctcly impossible, and lhis not    by
paper guarantees" (no one knows
belter than the Germans the value
of paper guarantees) "bill by real
guarantees; thai is to say by appropriate territorial changes on the
coast of the Adriatic." Germany and
Austria-Hungary arc to work together as regards the development
of llieir power "in the Mediterranean and the world." "The Mediterranean was the weak side of the old
triple alliance. The new quadruple
alliance can. after the overthrow of
Italy, give quite a different appearance to the Mediterranean problem. This can be done by creating
and securing two central points of
power���the Adriatic and Constantinople, with the Straits. Sueh a political, maritime and economic position
would stand in the closest combination with the position of the German empire in the north, and, if this
position remains dominant in thc
Baltic and on the coast of Flanders,
Great Britain's sea tyranny will be
set a 'difficult am! probably an insoluble problem."
The Frankfurter Zcitung, usually a
rather moderate journal, has also
joined the chorus. On November 31
it wrote: "The entente will never be
able to subdue fate, and tin rc nil of
its present altitude and endeavor will
bc what it need not hft-vc been at the
outset, namely, defeat." "If ihe entente had only been willing lo conclude betimes a peace based on understanding it would have been saved
the complete overthrow oi Rumania.

revolution and now- the victory in

W'e need not multiply quotations.
They would only confirm llu impression thai if Germany wero to obtain
victory, sh,. would use it first to
crush (lown ihose of her o\ n ] pic
who wish for a peaceful world, and
next to impose a ruthless military
domination on every part of the
worltl. But if she cannot get victory, she is all for peace���peac
reconciliation. IUr alternative
cics are to punish the whole
the is succi ssflll, to avoid per is
if she is beaten. She is like her own
soldiers, who failing to kill, throw up
their hands and cry "Kamcrad."

Why the Telephone Is
Sound travels at the rate of j,070 feet per second; the
voice when telephoning travels at the rate of 15,000 per second. Think of it! The reason sound travels faster bv telephoning is because it is accelerated by electricity, not very
much, but enough for the purpose,
So you can see the telephone is the quickest���the surest
to send, the quickest to reach the ear you seek, and the easiest to bring the answer back.    From anywhere, too,

The Bacon Hog
Farmers arc   Advised  to   Raise   the
Type Acceptable to Britisii
The economic value of the bacon
ling on tin- British market is an important topic. According to Mr.
Duncan Anderson, who has been
talking on this topic 'to the public
for many years, the fanners of Ontario began to change from lhe thick
fat to thc bacon type of hog about
twenty years ago. During the next
eight years, as a resull of that
change, an export trade to England
in bacon and ham was developed to
the extent of fifteen million dollars
a year. What is needed is that a
clear knowledge of thc situation bc
propagated among thc farmers, so
that the best type of bacon hog bc
produced, that the bacon be prepared
and preserved in the way thc British
people like best.

British Advance    Over   the   Route

And they ascended by lhe south

history go on repeating itself after

ovcr the route followed by Joshua's

heart of the newspaper reader is that

scale and to a far greater extent
than our own pepole are-in the
habit of doing. The occasion was
the departure of M. Yamamto, a
fanner of Royston Road and M
Araki, a coal '.miner of Cumberland, both naturalizsd Britfth subjects, joining the Canadian Expeditionary forces under tho Mili
tary Service Act, and leaving
Cumberland to go in training at
Willows camp at Victoria. Tlie
procession started from what is
known as No, 5 crossing just outside of tlie city limits, headed by
two Japanese, both naturalized
British subjects, side by side, one
carrying a large Union Jack on a
lo ft. pole, the other having a
Japanese flag on a similar scale.
Then came the Japanese school,
