Electricity provides the cleanest, the
most sanitary and the most hygenic
method of cooking
The Electric range closely parallels the wood or gas
range but excells either in flexibility of operation
With the Electric Range you cook
under ideal conditions because
Each cooking unit can be switched to high, medium or simmering heat and kept there as
long as needed
It is the acme of cleanliness
Practically no heat escapes into the room
The air is not vitiated
There is no contamination of food
You save food values through the retention of the
essential salts and meat juices, on a six pound

Stefansson Plans to Discover Extent

A letter has been received by G. J.

service, from Dr. Anderson, of the
Stefansson northern exploration
party, who some lime reached Nome.
The ieltcr gives additional details of
thc work done by the parly and supplies some information as to Stefan-
sson's future movements.
The letter slates lhal Stefansson's
plan had been to make a northerly
circuit around the new land, which he
discovered a year ago, with the object of discovering ils extent and
whether any territory existed north
of there.
As a resull of lhe lact that bis
ships did not succeed in getting far
north iu 1915, however, and of trouble with his dogs, the explorer was
unable to carry out Iiis design. He

Taxation Of Land Values
The day bas long since passed
when lhe doctrines of Henry George
could bc ridiculed or scouted as unworthy of serious attention. They
have found much acceptance in Europe, and particularly in Great Itril-
ain, where there is now a widespread
feeling in favor of (he taxation of
"unearned increment" ��� a feeling
which crystallized into legislation
some years ago when Mr. Lloyd
George was Chancellor of the Exchequer, lu Australasia, in lhe Canadian West, and elsewhere, the principle of differentiation between taxation of laud values and taxation of

The Influence for Better Crops Resulting from Fair Activities
The use of heller seed oilers one
of ihe mor-i effective methods for
increasing llie yield of farm crops.
Thc work of seed improvement associations and individuals who carefully select their own seed, has resulted in lhc general use of belter
seed. Competition iu producing and
displaying crop products of high
quality at agricultural fairs is another influence which should have an
increasing benefit on the quality of
seed planted. The influence for better crops resulting from fair activities would be greater if more persons exhibited iheir products and if
greater care would bc taken in the

Word, l.e,k6 Cc.,Limited
lu tlie iiicaulituc Lady Ursula and
Paul had conic downstairs ready for
their walk. In the hall they mel
Lord Eastling, whose expression
changed when he saw thai he was
with  his  wife.
"1 thought, Ursula, you were going oul   with   nn,"  said  ho  coldly.
But her sweet, pleading face made
peace between them,
"I am going mil with both of you,"
she said.
Very reluctantly the lun men accompanied her, while she exerted herself, hy addressing lirst the one and
then lhc other, lo keep lhc peace be-
tween Ihem and to make conversation in which both musl join her.
She had set her heart on ihi*. opportunity of bringing the two nun
nearer together, on smoothing away
difficulties and on effecting a real reconciliation between them, for which
she believed lhal her talk with her
brother thai morning had prepared
llic way.
But the result was not very successful.
They visilcd lhc village where Lady
Ursula had made herself known and
beloved, and where her Iwo companions were amused at the welcome
given her by the uncouth natives of
the  Black  Country.
On the way they passed a man
who was evidently not a native, of
lhc place���a man who turned on his
heel and disappeared, as it wcrc, furtively at their approach. Lord Last-
ling looked at the disappearing figure
with a strong impression that he had
seen it before somewhere.
()n lluir return homewards ihey
saw   il again.
Bul this lime he had a good look
;it the man and lad no difficulty in
remembering where he had seen the
face before. It was thai of the taller
of the iwo men who had made him

The whole ugly story of the pearl
necklace, and his doubts, flSshcd vividly back inlo his mind as Lord
Eastling looked from Paul, walking
on lhe other side of Lady Ursula, to
tllis skulking figure in the overcoat
vml bowler hat.
What was the man doing llicrc?
Full of his doubts of his brother-
in-law, which had perforce been assuaged somewhat by his sister's earnest, trusting advocacy, Lord Eastling slopped short and watched the
man as he slunk awav once more.
"Who's that fellow?" he asked
sharply, addressing  1'aul.
"liow on carlh should 1 know?"
replied his brother-in-law lazily.
"Some loafer in want of a pal lo treat
him,  I  should imagine."
"He looked," observed Lady Ursula, anxious to appease the antagonistic feeling which she perceived lo
be rising again in her companions,
"as if he hoped to find a friend among us."
"Thai's what I thought," said Lord
Eastling, drily.
Lady Ursula looked at her brother
v. itli   -itilderi   fear.
"lie has a mosl disagreeable countenance," said she "lie has a horrid
"Yes," *.iid Lord Eastling, while
Paul said nothing,
l.oid Eastling remained silent for
lhc rest of the walk, being deeply occupied in conjecture concerning lhc
appearance ol ihis man in lhe neighborhood. Instantly all his doubts
arose afresh and he set himself to
keep v, a I cli oine more upon the
movements of his brolhcr-in-law, dc-
tcrniincd to prevent a meeting between him and Ihis man whom he believed lo be his accomplice, and in
whom he recognized thc person who
had  visited   1'aul  al   the   hotel.
1'aul, however, never lefl the house
for the rest of the day, except lo go
with his brolhi r-in-law lo the posl
office lo buy some stamps and post
some  Idlers.
I In the following morning, while
Lady Ursula was having her hair
dressed, llicrc was a violent knocking
al her door, and Mrs. Finchden came
in, radiant and breathless with excitement. In the doorway stood her
husband, laughing and apologetic.
"Oh, Lady Ursula," gasped the excited lady, as she rushed at her
friend and threw herself on the floor
beside her, "It's all  right.    I've got
llieni back���my pearls! my pearls!"
And she stammered oul a confused account of ihc return of ihe three
rows of pearls lhal morning, senl
through the post in a shallow carton
bos, without a word of explanation,
Lady Ursula looked at lhe box, al
lhe pearls within it, and al the direction outside, 'this was ill an old-
fashioned female hand. The postmark was that of ihe nearest lown.
She rose lo her feel, lu ureal excitement, and turned to her husband as
soon   as   Mrs.   Limlidiii   had   left   llie
"Paul,"  said   she. "il   was  lhal  horrid   looking   man   wc   saw    yesterday
who   slide   them   and   who  sent   them
back.      Don'l you    remember?    The
inan  who looked  al  us so oddly;  lhc
i man  my brother spoke aboul!"
1'aul shrugged his shoulders,
j    "What should be have to do wilh
il:" he asked in surprise.
Hut she persisted.
"I am sure I'm righl," said she.
"Tom looked at him suspiciously,
and so did  I."
"But if he was the thief, why
should he send the pearls back?''
I "I think," said Lady Ursula, "that
lhc had heard of lhe slir aboul litem,
land that he was afraid."
| "I shouldn't wonder," said Paul absently, as he read for lhc second
time a letter which lhe posl had just
brought him.

I "I'car Syd,��� Wc areu.t going to

I from Brady Mane as it turned black

"Nothing,  my  dear

"Who  was  that  letter from?"
"The    onc  I've    thrown  inlo    lhe
fire?    Well,  it  was a  begging lctlcr,
lhal  was all."
Her  countenance  grew  clearer.
.  "Ah,    it's    very    dreadful    lo  get
those,"  she  said     wilh  a  little  sigh.
"One  doesn't  like  to lake  no  notice
of ihem, for fear thc story the writer
tells may bc  true"
Mc shook his head.
"It  is   never   true,  you   know,"   he
"Paul," said she, as her face grew
grave again, "how do you explain the
return  of the  pearls?"
He shrugged his shoulders.
"1   scarcely   know  how   lo   explain
it, unless    it  really was a    practical
joke, as I put it to them yesterday."
But she shook her head.
"I  don't    think    it was thai,"  she
said.    "I'm    more  inclined    lo  think

I Lady Ursula did not al once reply.
It was quite true, as Paul knew, lhat
'she had "hit the right nail on the
head," but il was only by accident,
and womanlike she would have been
hard put to it to give reasons for her
The instinct she had thai il was

brought this man lo a place where
he was evidently a stranger was, in-
��� deed, born of several trilling e.ircuin-
' stances, each so apparently Insignificant thai it would have escaped notice by itself.
Thus, the man had looked hard at
I Paul, and Paul, on seeing him, had
quickly averted his head; he had
glanced out of the corners of his eyes
at I.ord Eastling, who had evidently
|bccn startled to sec him there.
j These trifles, amounting lo nothing much in all yesterday, seemed lo
Lady Ursula to have assumed urcat-
jer importance today. Yet still she
[would have found it hard to account
[for thc connection she imagined bc-

Rumania In History
Her Place in European History Has
Always Been an Honorable One
Though   Rumania up to the nineteenth    century  docs    not appear  lo
I have played  a  conspicuous     part  iu
I lhc advance of civilization, her place
iin  European  history  is an  honorable
one,    and,    if less  spectacular    Ihan
Ihosc of her neighbors, her achievements have proved of supreme value.
i By llieir stubborn resistance lo    the
Ottoman     invaders,     Rumanians, in
common  with  lhc  oilier peoples  inhabiting Oriental  Europe, made pos-
jsible thai stability and security that
I enabled    Western    civilization to develop, and, although ihey came under
I lhc sway of the Turks, yet lhc Rumanians, by  llieir determined  stand,
iso weakened  lhc power of the  Mos-
; lcm  invaders,  that  they  were unable
! to carry on lhe fight.
j     Kosovo is a name sacred to all lhc
| Balkan  nations that  resisted Turkish
I rule.    It was in 1389 that Mircea thc
I Old,    Prince   of VVallachia,   led the
[united    Balkan    armies    against    llie
Turks.   The battle was lost; the van-
������ quished   were placed    under tribute,
but their light against their conquerors was   carried   on    for   centuries,
Like a great breakwater, these little
nations  held  the  Ottoman  waves  in
check, and left western  Europe  free
lo forge ahead unlraiiiniclcd by-    the
fear  of    Moslem    incursions.     Until
1877 the tribute imposed five centuries earlier, following lhc battle of Ro-
' sovo, was the br^sis of the relations
between Rumania and Turkey.    Unlike Hungary, which  for over a century' was  a  Turkish   province,     lhc
] Rumanian provinces never fell completely under lhc  sway of the    conqueror.      Under    the  suzerainty  of
Turkey, however, Rumania became a
'mere pawn in lhc politics of the great
European    powers.      She lost  I'uko-
iwina lo Austria in  1775, and Bessarabia to Russia in 1812.    Thc jealousies of    lhe  European    powers alone
saved  Rumania    from  greater    territorial losses.
Under  Prince  Carol,  who  was  related to lhe King of Prussia and to
Napoleon  III.,    Rumania maintained
ia  bolder  fronl  against  partition  and
��� won    her    independence.       Bulgaria
; since   then   has  done   much   to  keep
i alive  Rumanian  suspicions.    At  lhc
outset of lhe first  Balkan  campaign,
1910-11,  Bulgarian   official  documents
; referred lo the D'obrogca, wliicli was
Rumanian    territory, as    a "Bulgaria
Irredenta."      The double    dealing of
i the Central Powers in the last  rial-
lean war detached  Rumania.    Dreading lhc increasing influence of Gcr-
jmany in Bulgaria, Rumania, turned to
j Russia.
The present war funis Rumania in
a position    favorable lo   lhe accomplishment    of   her    most    cherished
dream���the inclusion  under one flag
.of all  Rumanians.      Transylvania    is
; the cradle of the Rumanian nation. In
Btikowhia and  Bessarabia    lhc pcas-
I ants, not given to change, havc pre-
! served all the customs and characteristics of the Rumanian race, including
.the  language.      In  Transylvania, dc-
i spile Magyar oppression, ihc Rumanians form a sin.tig middle class*.   Dcf-
\ initcly detached from    Germany, Rumania had not lime to recover from
her fears of Russian influence on the
Bospliorus   when ihc    European war
called for a decision as lo her altitude,       Moreover,   lhc   supply  of  all
her war materials  was in  lhc  hands
of  Krupps when  the  war broke out.
A  weak Cabinet and an opportunist
Premier declared for neutrality.
While lhe Roumanians of Transylvania were forced lo light in the
Hungarian regiments against Russia,
statecraft in Rumania turned to questions of trade. But lhc cry of Transylvania could nol for ever go unheeded, With Bulgaria on the side
of lhc Central Powers, lhc people of
: Rumania recalled the words of Prince
1 Carol, addressed to Bismarck in 18S0,

Measuring Hay in Stack
Rule for Measuring Hay Which Has
Been Proven Satisfactory
Estimating the number of tons of
hay in stack by measuring is often
resorted to when it is inconvenient
or impractical to weigh it. It is
impossible to give a rule for measuring hay which is entirely satisfactory. The following one has often
been used, States Professor E. G.
Schafcr, of thc Washington Experiment Station at Pullman, and approximates the correct weight:
"Width plus ovcr, divided by four
and squared, then multiplied by the
length and divided by 512."
The above rules assumes that the
cross section of a stack may bc obtained by dividing    the    width plus
over    measurement    by    four   and
squaring il.    Slacks vary so much ill
Ishapc that this cannot be absolutely
;true with all stacks.   The above rule
I also assumes that there arc 512 cubic
I feet in a Ion.   Thc length of lime a
|stack  has  been  built,  lhe  size of a
'slack or the amount it  has settled,
also the kind of hay, all influence lhe
weight  of  a  certain  volume  of  hay.
The above or oilier rules should not
be relied upon unless il is impossible
to weigh hay when it is sold.
Problem���Assume that a hay stack
measures 18 feet wide, 26 feet ovcr
(distance from ground on one side
up ovcr the stack and to thc ground
on other side) and 30 feet long.
The solution would bc���18 plus 26
equals 44; 44 divided by 4 equals 11;
11 squared equals 121 j 121 times 30
equals 3,680 cubic feet in 3,630 divided by 512 equals 7.09 tons.

Milk As A Stimulant
French Soldiers in the Trenches Are
Given Milk Only as a Stimulant
One of the most recent discoveries
of the Pasteur Institute of Paris has
to do with stimulating qualities of
milk. While milk has always been
considered an excellent tonic and
known to bc exceptionally rich iu
food value, it was not until lhe Pasteur Institute conducted a number of
conclusive experiments lhat thc stimulus in milk became a known quantity. For a number of months, milk
has been given the French soldiers in
lhc trenches and to many of them it
has been the one and only stimulant.
Thc effect which the milk has produced has more than justified the
claims which lhc Institute made for
It is claimed that the stimulating
effect of milk is especially notabl
when given to soldiers just before a
big battle or a dangerous charge, and
also when administered lo the Iroops
when in great fatigue, The advant
age of lhe milk stimulus over the al
cohol stimulus so extensively advocated in previous years is that Ihere
is no bad after effects, and the keenness of the senses is in no wise impaired nor the coolness of judgment
The knowledge that milk is a stimulant of no mean force will come as
something of a shock to those who
have hitherto considered it synonymous with all ihings mild and peaceful. It is somewhat difficult lo believe that the chief product of the
patient and gentle cow should contain such an clement of forceful stimulation. But, as proof of lhe contention we have the word of lhc world's
greatest research institutes backed
up by conclusive experiments in a
place where stimulation of the most
efficient sort is needed.

Why People Feel Depressed
in the Cold Weather
Why is tiredness and langor so
prevalent just now? A physician explained that lhc cold of winter drives
blood from lhc surface of the body
to the liver. Normally one-fourth of
the whole blood supply is in lhc liver,
and when more blood is accumulated
iu that organ everything goes wrong.
No better remedy exists than Dr.
Hamilton's I'ills, which arc composed of such vegetable extracts as Mandrake and Butternut, and possess
wonderful liver stimulating powers.
Its a marvel lhe way Hamilton's Pills
clear tho blood of the poisonous
llltmors, 'I'hey put new life into worn
out bodies, build up lhc appetite,
bring back a reserve of nerve energy,
tide folks over lhe cold days of winter and the depressing days of spring.

"Must Avenge Our Children"
It is the German people, as incarnated by their soldiers, who have.
carried off our daughters of the
north captive and delivered ihem to
the officers of lhe Kaiser. It is,
therefore, against the German people
as a whole that our race is making
war, and not against any fiction ot
isolated Imperialism. The German -
arc alone responsible for their crimes
and any olhcr conception of thc present war would only lead us to degradation, dupery aud defcal. V\ e
