British Plantation Rubber
Is Saying Canada Millions
Low Prices of Rubbers and Overshoes
Due to Britain's Control of Situation
Hero in Canada many of us have fallen into the
truly Anglo-Saxon habit of considering the "Mother
of Parliaments " slow and a bit behind the times. The
present price of rubber, tvlien its cause is revealed,
affords onc of thc many proofs that such au opinion
is away off thc mark,
Thanks to great rubber plantations established, in
the face of criticism anil ridicule, many years before
ih her tropical Dominions, Great Britain at the outbreak of war held a firm and tightening grip on the
world's supply of raw rubber���a grip reinforced by her
dominating navy. From C0--��� in 1914, the production
of these plantations has grown this year to 75% of
the whole world's output, leaving only about half the
requirements of the United States alone to come from
all other sources.
Thc result has been that the needs' of the Allies,
enormous though they are, have been plentifully supplied, while Germany has been reduced to registered
mails and the " Deutschland " in desperate attempts
to mitigate her rubber famine. Neutrals have been
allowed ;ill the rubber they want, at prices actually
lower than before the war, so long as they prevent
any of it from reaching the enemy, while Canada and
other parts of the Empire, have an abundant supply at
equally favorable Government regulated prices.
In this foresight and generosity of the British Govern*
ment lies Uie reason why rubber alone, of all the great staples,
has not gone up ln price���why rubber boots, rubbers anil
overshoes; are as Inexpensive as ever, while leather shoes ara
costii���? several dollars a pair more, wearing1 rubbers or overshoes through this winter to protect these expensive shoeu,
or rubber firm shoes to replace them, Is more than practical
thrift���K is grateful patriotism, for In thus savins leather
we make tt easier for the Government lo secure the absolutely
necessnrj supplle* of this alarmingly scarce material foi*
our soldiers.
Both Thrift and Patriotism Point to Rubbers!
Waste in England
At home the government lias to
practice economy and enforce it. Its
reduced rale of expenditure on the
army is, as wc have said, a good sign
of good management, but we hear
many examples of the wasteful use
made, of men who have been added
lo the vast numbers of people who
muddle away they- time doing nothing save, sign an occasional torm.
The railways rut down trains for
business men and maintain those
used by ladies bent on shopping and
matinees. There is still an enormous
amount of wasted energy and wasted
money going into the wrong things.

Hatching Eggs in China
The Chinese in the neighborhood
of Amoy have a curious way ot
hatching hens' and ducks' eggs. The
breeder roasts a quantity of unhiisk-!
ed rice, and when it is lukewarm
spreads a three-inch layer of it iu a I
wooden tub, and places about one
hundred eggs .thereon; then lie.
spreads another layer of rice over
the eggs. Each tub has six layers
of riec aud five layers of eggs, so
that there are five hundred eggs in
each tub. Once every twenty-four
hours the eggs are taken out and thc
rice reheated, When the eggs are
again put into the rice, those that
formed the bottom layer are placed
on lop. Thc chicks and ducklings
hatch in from twenty to thirty clays.

Following Family Traditions
A Democratic Princess Who Did Not
Mind a Little Task
""vidently English Princesses are
still accustomed to doing little things
for themselves without feeling that
they lose prestige (hereby, for Princess Patricia, as she rose from luncheon recently, pushed bse.1i her own
chair, and, nf course, quite '.t'uconscl-
ously brought back to the minds of
those who saw the liltlc act thai thc
story told of her aunt, Ihe. Princess
Royal, who found lhe verbotens of
the German Court very irksome
when, as the wife of Crown Prince
Frederick, she fell under their yoke.
Happening to want some chairs moved into her nursery one day, she carried them herself. Later, when called lo account for such an astounding |
forgetfulness of Royal dignity, the
Princess replied that she had often
seen her mother move chairs, and
what the (jueeu of England did she
thought could safely be done by a
mere German Princess.
Tactful Sergeant
At n parly one evening a very pret��

Sergeant, I saw your latest painting
and kissed ii because it was so much
like you."
"And did It kiss you in returar"
asked  thc arlisl gravely.
"Why, no, of course notI" was the
astonished reply.
"Then," said Mr. Sergeant, smiling*
ly, "it was nol. like me."

Coal Enough
According to the International
Geological Congress, there is coal
enough yet unmiiied to last the world
nearly six thousand years at the
present rate of consumption. There
is a reserve of unmined coal estimated at 7,398,561,000,000 tons. This
does not of course take note of the
coal deposits in the Antarctic and
Arctic polar regions, which are possibly very large.
Doctor Tells How to Strengthen
Eyesight 50 per cent. In One
Week's Time in Many Instances
Will  Find   New  Strength  Through
the Use of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills
It is useless to tell a hard working
woman to uikc lite easily and not to
worry. Every woman at mc head oi
a home; every girl in ottjces, shops]
and lactones is subjected to more or
less worry, ihese cannot bc avoided, but it is the duty of every woman and every girl to save her
strengtli as nuicli as possible, and to
buihl up her system to meet unusual
demands. Her future health depends upon it, To guard against a I
breakdown in health the blood must;
bc kept rich, red and pure. To keep
thc blood in this condition nothing
can equal Dr. Williams*' Pink Pills.
They strengthen the nerves, restore
the appetite, bring the glow of health I
to pallid checks, and renewed energy j
to listless people. Women cannot I
always rest when they should, bul!
they can keep up their strength and|
keep away disease by the occasional;
use of Dr. Williams' l'ink Pills, Mrs.
N, E, Tompseft, Ottawa, Out.,
writes: "For several years I suffered
terribly from nervous debility and
was scarcely able to do a thing. During that time 1 consulted several
doctors, and many medicines withoul
getting any help, and 1 began to
think that I would never get better.;
One day I saw Dr. Williams' l'ink I
I'ills advertised and thought I;
would try them. After laking four
boxes I was much better, but I con-'
tinued using the pills for several
months when 1 was again iu the lirst i
of health. When I began taking the
pills I weighed only 10(1 pounds, j
\\ jille under their use with my re-1
newed health i now weigh M0. I recommend Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to
everyone whom I know to be ailing."

Caves Which Were Dug During thc Religious Wars in France
Centuries Ago Arc Now Occupied by the German Armies,
And Constitute a New Line of Defence
While ilic cave warfar., wliicli lias
been adopted by tlie Germans as
their latest style of defensive tactics,
is being greatly facilitated at the
southern extremity of the Franco-
British offensive by the existence of
caves dug by the Huguenots, il Is
being even more facilitated at ihe
northern extremity of the "big push"
by lhc existence of the entire underground villages,
The caves, cellars ami vaults dug
by lhc Huguenots in the province of
Santerre, both for refuge and for con-1
CCaling their valuables, date bark to
the religious wars which wcrc waged iii France several centuries ago,
The Subterranean villages in the
northern part of I'icanly arc of a
more antique origin and go back lo
feudal times.
As a rule, they arc dug Into solid
rock, and the French general staff
lias reason to believe that their
existence was not only long1, ago
known to Germans, but long ago
counted on by lhe German general
etalT as a definite means .for clinging on to thc soil of France.
There is every reason lo believe
that the series of underground villages in I'icanly is lo be utilized hy
the Germans in constituting a new
line of defence against the Franco-
Brilish drive that has pushed them
entirely out of their three line trench
defenses which they had regarded
as untaxable.
By a combination of circumstances, the immense navigable canal
which was being dug in the northern part of France when lhc war
began, and which was to have been
onc of France's greatest inland
waterways, skirts oil the west and
constitutes an additional asset to
the Germans for their new line of
defense.   This   canal, starting   from
I'eronne, where it was to connect
up with the Somiiic canal already in
existence,   traverses   the   northern
half of lhe pathway of llic allies' offensive, culling llic ilapaunic-'.'iini-
brai road near lloiriiicourt,
At ihc moment war was declared
this canal was practically completed
and ready to have lhe water Inrucd
in. At the foot of Mount Saint
Qucnill, lhe French have reached lhc
hanks of this canal, and il has been
ascertained lhat the Germans arc
Utilizing lhc big ditch for their own
line of defenses, This does not constitute a serious fact for lhc French
general r*lalT, as it is in possession of
all the details of the canal's construction.
What it; dors regret, however, is
that its occupation by ihe Germans
unquestionably will force ils complete destruction by lhc allies' heavy
artillery and lhe years of time and
millions of francs spent in ils construction will be wiped out.
Along thc line of this canal also
arc to bc found the underground villages of feudal times, which arc being organized by the Germans wilh
machine guns for a final resistance.
One of the most famous of Ihese
subterranean villages is at Hcrniics,
on the bank of thc canal. The village is dug in thc solid rock, and
consists of 115 chambers with about
800 alcoves. The entrance to this
village is under the tow;cr of the
church, and its fortification by lhc
Germans will, of course, cnlail the
destruction of the church edifice by
thc allied artillery. Olhcr underground villages arc to bc found in
the valley of the Kxueltc, traversed
also by lhc canal, and at ypres. Getting the Germans out of these subterranean villages is not considered
a serious problem by the French
general staff.
Helping the Russians
Captured   Bohemians    Volunteer to
Help Russia in Munition
According to the Bohemian National Alliance, the Bohemian soldiers captured by the Russians are
helping the Russians in the niuni-
tiou factories and iii lhc held. "Bohemia," says the report, "is the scat
of tlie Austrian iron Industry, and
among the multitudes of captured
Bohemians were thousands of machinists and other mechanics, Among
the officers wcrc numerous highly-

Swedish explorer, has returned to
New York after three years spent in'
the Arctic. As evidence of lhc t'llth

Returning thanks for the beautiful

Financing and Fostering of Rubber Plantations in Her Colonies
Now Proving a Boon to the Consumer in Keeping
Prices Down
When lhe British Government
some years ago began to take an ac-
ture interest in fostering the robber
industry, and finally succeeded iu
practically cornering the rubber market, it is far from probable that the
wisdom shown in this connection waa
properly appreciated at thc inception
cf thc movement. Subsequent events
show quite clearly that had not this
been done, rubber, in common with
almost every commodity, would havc
greatly increased in price, instead of
which it is obtainable today at not
only pre-war prices, but in some
cases below the prices obtaining
ionic time ago.
In 1893 Brazil was producing practically all of the world's supply of
rubber. With commendable foresight Great Britain realized the coming importance of rubber products,
and about that time took an interest
in the establishment of plantations in
her tropical colonies, so that when
the motor industry and allied manufactories brought about a sharp demand for the product, Great Britain
was prepared to meet the conditions.
Today it is estimated that over 75
per cent, of the world's supply of
crude rubber is controlled by British
While in 1910 the total production
cf rubber was about 70,500 tons, with
thc price at $3 - pound, the estimated
amount of crude rubber used in 1916
was approximately 202,000 tons, with
the    price    between    60    and    70
cents a pound, or just about half the
price asked at the commencement of
thc war.
The public in general, perhaps unfamiliar with the conditions, may improperly realize the benefit that is
derived from this slate of affairs.
Leather has advanced in price steadily since the opening of the war, until the hide is worth today as much
as was paid for the whole animal not

By Autumn, 1917
Newfoundlanders   Expect   Wheat to
Be Shipped Thus by That Date
The belief that the export of wheat
from Western Canada to Europe, by
way of Hudson Bay, may bc begun
in the autumn of 1917 was expressed
by officers of the Newfoundland scaling steamer Nascopic, which has just
returned from her last trip of the
season to Port Nelson.
They said that the construction of
a railway from Winnipeg to Port
Nelson and the building of shipping
terminals at that point warranted the
expectation that the start of thc use
of thc new port would bc made before the close of navigation nexl autumn.

About 1,200 Are in Ranks of Canadian Expeditionary Force
That about 1.200 full-blooded Indians have enlisted for overseas service since the war commenced, u__J
one at least has received the Military
Medal for bravery, that the various
reserves havc contributed upwards of
$0,000 toward various patriotic .'und_
ami that altogether the Indian population has evinced a gratifying spirit
of loyalty are the most interesting
features of the annual report of the
Indian department just publish---. It
is also interesting to note that the
Indian population has increased from
103,531 in 1915 to 105,561 in 1916,
It is stated by the report that nearly one-half of the total strength of
the 14th Battalion (Hat-Wnai-I
Rifles) has been recruited from tie
reserves of Eastern Ontario. There
are 65 Indian members of the 52a<i
Ontario, commonly known an the
"Bull Moose Battalion"; the Brucs
Battalion has 65 Indians from Op*
Crokcr reserve, where the total population between 21 and 65 is only 108.
Eighty Indians were recruited _co__
remote regions of the Hudson Bay.
In all, about 1,200 Indians have enlisted. They are distributed by provinces as follows: Ontario, 802; Q-ie-
bec, 101; Manitoba, 89: Saskatchewan, 57; Prince Edward Island. 24;
British Columbia, 17; Nova Scoria,
14; New Brunswick, 12; Alberta, 0,
and Yukon, 2.
Of this number eight are eor__ni_-
sioncd officers, as follows: Capt. Gen,
Smith, 4th Battalion; Capt. Ormond
Picard, 12th Battalion; Capt. Charle-l
Smith, 114th Battalion; Lieut. Cameron D. Brant, 4th Battalion (killed
at Ypres); Lieutenants Milton Martin, James D. Moses, John R. Steac-
ey and C. A. Cooke, of the 114th Battalion.
A notable demonstration of the
traditional loyalty of a distinguished
Indian family was thc death in action
at Langcmarc of Lieut. Brant, who
was a great-great-grandson of the
famous Capt. Joseph Brant, who rendered such valuable service to the
Britisii cause in 1776. Two other lineal descendants of the great chieftain, Corpl. Albert W. L. Crain, 4ti
Battalion, and Pte. Nathan Mont-art
were severely injured at Ypres.

What Is trie Acid ?
Rver m'nee tlio discovery of nrie seid
In the blood by Soheele, in 1775, and
the bad et'ect it had upon the body,
scientists and physicians have striven
lo rid the tissues and the blood of
this poison, Because of its overabundance in the system it causes
backache, pains here and there, rheumatism, gont, gravel, nenralgia and
sciatica. It was Dr. Pierce who discovered a new agent, called "Anuric,"
which will throw ont and completely
eradicate this uric acid Irom the system. '-Anuric" has proved to be 37
times more potent than lilAio, and
consequently yon need no longer fear
muscular or articular rheumatism or
Sent, or many other diseases which are
ependent ou an accumulation of uric
acid within the body. Send to Dr.
Pierce, of the Invalids' Hotel and Surgical Institute, Buffalo, N. ... for a
Iiamphlet on "Anuric,"or send 10 cents
or a trial package of "Anuric Tablets."
If you feel that tired, worn-out
feeling, backache, nenralgia, or if your
Sleep is disturbed by too frequent
urination, go to your best drug store
and ask for Dr. three's Anuric Tablets.
They are pnt up in 60-cent packages.

:: LADY ���
Word. Loch A C*.,Lmmd
When I.ord Eastling got back lo
Oare Court, afler having sent off thc
parcel of stones from the post office,
hc found Lady Ursula in a different
mood from that in wliicli lie had left
her. When lie went away she was
feverish, excited, madly anxious to
get the stolen jewels out of the house
and on their way to the hands of the
Now, however, that mood was
passed, and she was sitting by the
window in a crouching attitude, her
face pale, her eyes dull and heavy-
lidded, her manner listless and without life,
���    She turned her head as lie came in,
and put out her hand to him,
"He's gone," she whispered in a
tone of thc most abject wretchedness.
"Well, dear, what else was there
for him to do?"
She hesitated.
"Nothing, I suppose," she said.
Then, after a pause: "Tom, I've been
hard.    But could I help myself?"
"No, of course not. Hc sees that
as well as wc do. When once you
found him out in lies and deceit and
every sort of trickery all round, there
was nothing for it, nothing, but lo let
him go his own way and forget him
if you can."
She gave him a piteous look and
shook her head.
"Forget liim! I can't do that."
Well, anyhow, it was out of the
question that you should keep in with
a husband who appears only to have
married you in order to bc able to
get into houses to rob them."
She uttered a cry of agony, and put
'out her hand to check his angry

"Well, it looks like il."
"I don't believe that; I can't, 1

Tom, lie did like ine I"
"Well, who could help if? Vou

miilly. "And lie was gelling to love, j

happy. And now it's all over, all over]
for rver."
She bent her head and sobbed,   lie
caressed her affectionately,
"Cheer up, child, it can't bc helped. 1 don't wanl to bc hard on the.
fellow, any more, than you do; I liked him, and 1 know he was not such
a bad fellow at heart, as anyone else
would think, But still��� Conic, onc
must draw lhc line somewhere! Wc
don't even know where hc came
from. Hc was only a Yankee adventurer, when all's said and done."
She raised her head.
"No, he was not that, Tom. llis
real name is Alban Crcslow, and he
is the son of thai while-haired Lady
Creslow who was here for the great
Lord Eastling walked up and down
the room thoughtfully. The discovery made a difference. It h onc thing
to believe that jour sisler is married
to an adventurer of unknown extraction, and another to discover that,
after all, the man in question has
good blood in his veins and comes of
a family of equal rank with one's
own. This explained lhe good breeding which was a conspicuous charm
in thc jicccant Paul.
"I'm most awfully glad of this for
one thing," hc said at last; "Il will
make a little easier that awful task
of breaking thc news to them at
"If they believe that Paul is only a
gentleman gone 'off the rails,' they
will take it less hardly than if he had
been just an adventurer from goodness knows where."
"Yes, I suppose so. When do we
go back, Tom?"
"Tomorrow morning. Thc sooner
wc get away from here the better, to
give an opportunity for thc gossip to
die down."
She rose with her eyes full of
"Tom, what do they think? What
do they say?"
"Well, they think���and I'm encouraging them in the thought wilh all
my might���that it's been found out
that it was Paul who took Mrs.
Fiuehdcn's pearls, and gave them
back again. Whether lhcy believe
that it was only a joke or not, I
hardly know, and I don't much care.
But thc legend is as good as it could
bc for our purposes, for it stops any
farther search into the reason of his
"Disappearance!    Oh, Paul!"
There was a heart-broken ring in
her voice. Lord Eastling stopped
short in front of her impatiently.
"Well wasn't it what you wanted?
You drove him away. There was nothing else to bc done."
She was shaking from head to foot.
"I've begun to think," she said
hoarsely, "that I was wrong. I've
becn too hard, Tom. But it all came
upon me so suddenly that I hadn't
time to think, or to be generous, or
even just."
"Oh, 1 think we've becn just. At
any rate, there's no harm done in letting him know wc don't approve of
theft as a profession."
"Hush, hush, how dare you say
Her eyes were flashing,
"Well, what name do you give to
his performances?" demanded Lord
Eastling doggedly.
She hesitated.
"I can see," she said in a lower,
fainter voice, "how lie's been dragged
in, dragged along, until he couldn't
find a way out."
"Well, lie's found one now," said
Tom shortly. "We've found it for
"Did lie know you were sending
the stones away?"
"Yes. Hc took lhc parcel out of
my hand."
"Hc took it?"
"And he gave it mc back again."
Her face brightened.
"He made no objection to your
sending them away?"
"No, none."
She gave a sigh of relief, and then
said. "I watched him go, Tom, from
I behind the curtain.    I���I���I couldn't
have let   him go���if   only I'd   becn
"Then it's just as well you were
not," retorted Lord Eastling robust-
"Where has he gone to?"
"I don't know."
"You didn't ask?" she cried reprov-
"No, and I didn't care."
"Tom, Tom, you arc too hard."
"It's Just as well that we shouldn't
all bc too  soft," said Tom drily as
he went out of the room.
As Lord Eastling had said, the rumor was rife that it was Paul Payne
who had been discovered to be the
author of the pearls, and there had
been much discussion about it, which
naturally increased us the day went
on, ami I.ady Ursula kept her room
and Paul Payne went away without
saying good-bye lo his wifc.
For that piece of information was
loo Interesting not lo nave become
public property Immediately,
Hugo had a long chase before he
ran I.ady Emmeline to earth. Il was
during the tea hour, when Mrs. Jackson and lur daughters were pouring
out tea in the drawing-room and
handing il about, that Hugo discovered lhe object of his elcrnal search
in a corner behind lhc window curtains. She was looking out al the
birds in the verandah, and her eyes
were full of tears.
"I've brought you some tea," said
Hugo, "and some cake, I know you
like cake."
She shook her head.
"I can't eat anything, thank you,"
said she.
"Oh, but. you shouldn't starve yourself just because you're miserable.
Misery is much easier lo bear if
you've had enough to cat," said he
"I'm     nol   miserable,"     said  I.ady
Emmeline indignantly, wiping her
Hugo said nothing, but whistled
softly lo himself as she took lhc teacup from him.
Presently lie said���
"This is a sorry business, isn't it?"
She flashed upon him an angry
"What business? 1 do not know
what you mean," said she,
"Oh, yes, you do. I don't want to
force your confidence, or anything of
that sort. But 1 may tell you I'm
heartily sorry for Payne, although 1

Lady Emmeline. gasped.
"How dare you?" cried she.
"Well, what's the use pretending
not to know that he's gone away
without saying good-bye to his wife?
It's silly to pretend not to notice, especially when one is crazily anxious
to help to patch things up."
She gave up pretending, limply,
"They'll never be patched up," she
said sadly.
"Why not? Is Lady Ursula so unforgiving? I shouldn't have thought
it of her."
"It isn't lhat. There's so much to
be considered. He's sworn what
wasn't true, and how can she trust
him again?"
"ll all depends, doesn't it, on the
position he  was  in when hc had  to
swear? I don't want to defend Payne.
I think he's done some very queer
things. Bul if ever I saw a man

Lady Emmeline gulped back a sob.
"It's broken lur heart," she said.

She rose from her chair.

The Modern Scourge
and How to Meet it.
The  speed at which we live, the hustle now so
necessary for   success   have  unfortunately a very
adverse effect on the nervous and digestive systems
of Canadians. The baneful results, increased lately
to an alarming degree, often lay the seeds of more
deadly trouble, but it will be satisfactory to learn
of the ever-increasing popularity in the Dominion, of the Great
British Remedy, Dr. Cassell's Tablets.
Dr. Ramsay Col Ies, J.P. of the City of Dublin, a man of high-eminence in the setejitific
world, savs:���" I have great pleasure in expressing my satisfaction as to the curative effect of
Dr. Cassell's Tablets in cases of nerve troubles. From several cases which have lately come under
my notice I am able to form the opinion that Dr. Cassell's Tablets constitute a safe and reliable
family remedy, and appear to be specially effective for nerve and bodily weakness."
Dr. Cassell's Tablets are Nutritive, Restorative, Alterative, and Anti-Spasmodic, and of great
therapeutic value in all derangements of the Nerve, Digestive, and Functional Systems in old or
young. They are the recognised modern home remedy for Dyspepsia, Nervous Breakdown,
Stomach Catarrh, Kidney Disease, Nerve and -Spinal Paralysis, Infantile Paralysis, Rickets, St.
Vitus' Dance, Antcmia, Sleeplessness, Brain Fag, Headache, Palpitation, Wasting Diseases, Vital

during the Critical Periods of Life.

How a Man Who Landed on Wood
Pile and Was Sore From
Head to Foot Found
Quick Relief
Once upon a time Edwin Putnam,
who lives in llic quiet, pretty liamlet
of VVcndcl Depot, Mass., climbed up
into a loft to get some building material, just as many another man living in the country must often do.
Suddenly he slipped and fell. Ten
feet below was a pile of wood, knot
ted and gnarled. It was a nasty tumble, and Mr. Putnam was injured
painfully in tlie back, lie was covered
with bruises, and was sore from head
to foot,
The next day he bought a bottle
of Sloan's Liniment which had bem
recommended to him. Within a very
few hours the soreness had vanished
and the lameness had disappeared,
lie was an active man once more.
Sloan's Liniment can be obtained
at all drug stores, 25c, 50c and $1.00.

Scientists' Benevolence
The demands of the war upon the
scientific brains of the country has
called into the official laboratories
hundreds of men, some rich, some
struggling with a professional zeal
against great financial odds. But
although not often heard about in the
ordinary chronicles of events indirectly related to the war, they are
doing a great work, and some are
practically- giving their time and
knowledge as a free will offering to
the cause of international freedom.
One scientist, who did some work
for one of the universities, refused
his fee of $5,000 and handed it over
to the National Red Cross, Another
hearing of what he bad done, followed his example.
