from  the north  has  never been  figured in the crop statistics of either

that it was  grown,  milled  and con- [

some truly astounding facts. Any Do

From thence northward until the

the farming resources of the Peace

The winters are shorter and while
the degrees on the thermometer may
register a few lower than in some

warm Chinook winds from over the
Rockies temper ihc atmosphere wonderfully. Then too, during the

the use of it justifiable as the only

the war office to combat the enemy

Victoria, B. C.���Some interesting items are recorded in reports
recently received by the Hon. the
Minister of Lands, upon conditions
in the Cranbrook district, Crop
prospects and favorable weather
give every hope that the prairie demand for lumber this fall will be
good, especially as present stocks
in the prairie yards are light. The
amount of current business done by
the millss is showing some increase
and it is estiamted that there are
from goo to iooo men engaged at
j the present time in the lumber industry in   the   district.   With   a
scarcity of labor, owing to the temporary witlulrawl of men  to work
as harvesters, the   rate   of   wa^es
shows a tendency  to  increase  for
the time being.    One of the larger
orders now being filled by the mills
as present   i�� composed   of   grain
doors, one mill alone having an or
der which will consume one and a
half million feet of lumber, another
mill having a still larger order, and
a third turning   out   considerable
quantities of the   same article.    A
timber sale, area  containing three
and a half million feet   of   timber
has been recently applied for,  and
cruised.   The steps which are bein g
taken to develop   the   prairie   demand for British Columbia timber
have naturally given rise to   much
interest to a district   whose   mills
depend largely on   prairie   orders
and favorable comment   hat been
expressed upon the action taken by
ihe Government.    The fire hazard
in this district gives cause for anxiety, especially as uo raia has fallen since July 18, and the  prevailing hot and dry weather is ripening vegetation to a dangerous  degree.    Fires so far have been easily
controlled,  but   unless   rain   falls
soon, the situation will be fraught
with much danger.    It is hoped to
burn further areas of slash as soon
as the weather permitsj thii to be
done without   undue  risks   being
taken, and so reduce a  source  of
trouble aud difficulty.

Editor Courtenay Review
Sir,���The general tenor of the
letter in tlie last issue of your paper
is good, and to the point. It
should, however be borne in mind
that several apparently ''fil" men
have tried to enlist and have been
rejected after medical examination.
Such men are neither ''shirker.!"
nor "slackers."
The majority of the young men
who formed the regular portion of
my congregations a year ago, are
uow at the Front, or in training.
Regular intercessions are offered,
and constant mention is made of
them in church, and for the credit
of the district I would venture to
assert that th<- duty of the Clergy
to encourage recruiting has not
been overlooked. We are proud of
our representations at the front
who include 7 commissioned officers
and 2 non-commissioned,
Three have already given their
lives for their King and Country,
and at least two are at present in
hospital wounded. Certainly if a
man can go, (and let us remember
that manv cannot,, it is his duty to
do so but then this duty has been
urged upon the men here since
August of last year.
I think we owe Mr. Porteous
our thanks for the bold way iu
which he has opened up this sub.
ject lu your paper.
I am, Sir,
Yours very truly

Forage Plant Tests
Results of experiments in crop
production and field work eau never

value, and, therefore, a publication
describing them must be exceptionally welcome, guch a work is
Bulletin No. 84. ot the Division of
Forage Plants, Dominion Experimental Farms, that gives a summary of results reached at the Centra] and different branch farms and
stations throughout the country,
aud that can be had free on application to the Department of Agriculture, Ottawa. There are included also some recommendatioi s
as to the vaiieties to grow, or crop
production methods to follow, as
deducted from the lesults of experimental work in the various provinces, A variety of tests at thc
Central Experimental farm in Indian corn showed that the best
varieties in ears of twelve experimented with were Quebec Yellow,
Wiiidus Yellow Dent, Canada Yellow, and Free Press, and that,
while of the ensilage varieties proper, Argentine Yellow gave the
highest yl#ld iu tonnage,  White
Cap Yellow Dent, Golden Glow,

maturity. Eighteen varieties of
turnips were tested, thirteen of
mangels, five of Carrots, an,I foui
of sugar beets. (It the turnips nun
varieties produced over j 1-2 tons

mangels half a dozen vaiieties yielded 3 1-4 tons of dry matter to the

The Instinct of Slaves
It would seem an altogether stupid and senseless business to allow
the finest and best of our voting
men to go to Europe and ri>k their
lives whi'e crowds of men are parading the streets who refuse either to
enlist or to go to work on the farms.
vVe have to pay some price for
freedom, aud this is part of the
price. These men who so refuse
have not yet been trained to understand that it is a mean and shameful thing to allow others to sacrifice ,
themselves that they may live with-1
out effort. Thev have not yet
learned that they are men. They
may sing that Britons never will be
slaves, but slavery is still an instinct
w'th them, and dyes their whole
character black. It is a difficult
thing to teach this lesson, but it will
not be taught by compelling them
to do what they do not want to
do.���Toronto World.

may rest on a desk and is called the
telescribe. While the telephone is
being used this instrument, started by
the pressing of a button, is recording
the conversation on a wax cylinder. A
needle attached to u delicate diaphragm nl lhe end of n receiver in-
scribes th," vibrations upon a wax cylinder, is sent in a typist and is run

Indicator for Submarine
Will Enable Them to Tell Their Location Without Coming to Surface
���Hudson Maxim lias Invented a position Indicator for submarines which is
cheaper and much belter than those
| now in use in Ihe various navies. This
instrument will enable a submarine to
Hud hor own position under water and
will do away with the dangerous necessity nl going tn the sini'iiee l'or that
purpose. .Mr. Maxim has applied l'or il
patent nu ihe dc\ Ice, lie said:
"Ther,' was an Instance ai the be-
I ginning of ihe war where a Herman

appeared above ihe water she was attacked and destroyed. .My device
would enable a submarine commander

Gasping for Breath
Horrible Effect of the Poisonous Gac
Used by the Germans
"It moving pictures or the terrible
sights to he seen around Ypres could
be shown in Canada, there would
not be an able-bodied Canadian from
Vancouver lo Halifax out ot khaki,"
declares 10. II. Bradley, writing to
his wife niter lie had visited the front
and had returned to the Canadian
headquarters at Shorncliffe Kent,
"If you could sec some of the agonized expressions on the laces ot
those brave fellows who rought at
Ypres and are now in hospital, gasping for the sweet breath of life, victims ot the poison gas shells and
asphyxiating gases blown into the
trenches, it would make you, woman
as j'ou are, curse such an enemy and
cry out to heaven for vengeance.
"But they couldn't beat the Canadians, and tlie wonderful charge our
hoys made makes the charge at Balaclava pule into insignificance. It
makes nie feel proud to wear the
maple leaf, and this spirit is predominant among our hoys.
"The Ecene when the reinforcements inarched down to embark for
France will for ever live in the memory of those wbo witnessed it. Thousands of Kitchener's army lined the

cheering tho boys from Canada, who

that terrible week of lighting.

were 80,000,000 people in Canada instead ol' 8,000,000, so that more men

Economic  Use  of Horses
One of llie most frequent sources
of loss on Ihe farm is an insufficient

to meet the interest, depreciation and
other expenses, as harness costs and
Do you handle the horse labor on
your farm so that the annual cost ol
keeping your horses is less than the
average, or so that the number of

greatest opportunity.
Can you revise your cropping system so that fewer work horses will

Can you raise colts and thus reduce
the cost of keeping your horses?

Can you reduce the cost of keeping

The summer months arc the most

of that season, which are cholera infantum, colic, diarrhoea and dysentry,
come on so quickly that often a little

be on her guard to prevent these
troubles, or if they do come on suddenly to cure them. No other medicine is or such aid to mothers during
the hot weather as is Baby's Own
