Tbe most gratifying point ubout
tho above waB tbat with two exceptions every competitor put in nn appearance on the grounds even though
the majority knew quite well tbat
they had no possible chance of a
a prize.
The potato boys bave yet to compete at Victoria for five prizes, (8,
(4, (3, (2, (1 and a book will tie supplied to each entitled "The Potato."
The prize money for the local potatoes . was Mudly .given, by .the . Fink
Mercantile Co. MesBrs. W. Hamilton and B. Palmer judged tbe potatoes, and A. B. Smith, B. Palmer
and G. Parnaby the plots.
Messrs. A. B. Smith and C. Bheppard were the poultry judges. The
poultry prizes were made up as follows:
FeeB from competition  (12.50
Subscription, A. H. Webb     2.50
Subscription T.  Gill     1.00
Subscription, Poultry Assu    3.50
TagB were sold tn refund each competitor fn poultry h ill bis fee.and to
help defray expenses of seed and
ploughing on potato plot, as the crop
is very light on account of the late
start and dry season. Thanks are
due to Mr. John Cholditcb who so
kindly allowed' use of' plot free of
Cranbrook has four probable
sources of prosperity: C. P. R., lumbering, mining and agriculture. The
C.P.R. ls rather a Blender reed at
present, mining is always fickle, and
the lumber trade is in low water
and in any event gradually receding
further from tbe city. Agriculture
needs a special boost as that wy
stay and grow yearly. Wo.»: among
the young I folks as outlined above is
one of the best ways to keep them
interested in agricultuse and to get
both their sympathies and aid wben
they grow older. We look for these
competitions to be extended next
year and wish all concerned the best
of success.
Mr. J. Wilson, director of Ely Agricultural Education for B. C, addressed the trustees cn Monday re
further development of the school
garden scheme. Any such development should have the bearty support
ot every go-abead citizen as tbe idea
of learning by doing or hand work
of any description and especially
along agricultural lines is yearly receiving more and, more adherents
among those In authority in matters
educational. Cranhrook baa all to
gain and nothing to lose under such
a scheme.
Under date of September 5th the
Department of Agriculture sent out
a lettfer to the various secretaries
of tho Farmers Institutes throughout
tho length nnd breadth of British Columbia giving notice to tbe cllect
that the Dominion Fair had been
called ofl this year, and that a readjustment dt the competition for
the harvesting of crops for the winning plots in the Field Crop compo-
tlons was therefore necessary.
Under ths new rules and regulations governing these competitions
tho new prises are (100.00 to the
Institute obtaining the largest number of bona-flde competitors; this
does not include competitions for potatoes.
Any winner of a prise in the Crop
Competition may send an exhibit ot
- tbe harvested product from the plot
Judged in this competition to the Department of Agriculture. Tbe department will appoint competent
judges to make tbe awards.
In the competition for potatoes
the farmers of ths Cranhrook district bavs dono exceedingly well, tho
winner of the flrst prize reaching a
scot's of 79) out of a possible 100,
The score card contains the following Items and the several marks In
each subject to be attained to reach
the 100 mark set for this competition.
General appearance—1. Method of
Planting, stand of crop, marks 7;
2 Vigour of growth, marks 8-15.
Freedom from light, scabs, and   In
sects, marks 20. Method and thoroughness ot cultivation, marks 20.
Purity of variety, marks 10.

All of the above gentlemen are
members of the Cranbrook Farmers
Institute to whom credit iB coming
for interesting the farmers of the
district to take part in the competitions with such good results to themselves and to the Institute to which
they belong.
Report of Fisheries
Tbe report of Honorable W.J.Bowser, Commissioner of Fisheries, which
has just been Issued, is the lengthiest yet put forth by the Provincial
Department, and, Incidentally, the
most Interesting. In addition to tbe
statistics of the catch for 1913 and
thc discussion of various matters ot
policy and demonstration, the main
report summarizes exhaustive papers
by Dr. C. H. Gilbert, upon the Mc
history ol the sockeye salmon; Dr.
Joseph Stafford, .upon the native oyster of British Columbia; W. F.
Thomson, on the shell fish ol the
Coast, and Dr. C. F. Newcombe, upon the numbers and distribution ol
sra-lions upon the Coast. The report
is illustrated with some fifty-seven
plates and concludes wltb a map
which indicates the location of the
different halibut banks in the waters
adjacent to British Columbia.
Amongst the appendices tbe rapers
above referred to are included, while
Jobn P. Babcock, assistant to the
Commissioner of Fisheries, deals exhaustively with the conditions which
existed last year In the Canyon ot
the Fraser. At this point, as a result ot railway construction, millions of sockeye salmon failed to
reach their spawning beds nnd died
without spawning. With reference
to the next "t.ig year" run, Mr.
Babcock states:
"These tacts, in my opinion, warrant the conclusion that tbe number
of sockeye which spawn in tbe Fraser River watershed this year was not
sufficient to make the run four years
hence even approximate the runs even
of 1905, 1909 or 1918."
Dr. Joseph Stafford, of McGill Unl-
vereity, during the months of May
nnd September, 1913, carried on investigations into the life history ol
tbe Pacific coast oyster. These include observations on distribution,
mode of occurrence, manner of life,
activities, defence, competition, kind
of food, organization, breeding, de
velopment of young, favorable and
advcrBe physical conditions ot the
substratum, sea-water, salinity,
temperature, tho time and manner
of spawning, how to And and recognize tho different stag.'s of development, length of.period of each stage,
rate of growth, death rate, cause ot
premature death.
Salmon for England
The work of preparing (or shipment to England the 1,200,000 one-
pound tins of British Columbia salmon, the gift of the people of the
Province to the Motherland, is proceeding apace, and it is anticipated
that within two week's time it will
have started on its long journey.
As previously announced in The
Colonist, eacb tin, in addition to tbe
ordinary label, will bear a special
label, designed by Mr. D. N. Mclu-
tyre, deputy commissioner of fisheries, acting under instructions from
bis chief, the Hon. W. J. Bowser.
Tbo lattor, yesterday, explained what
the label would bear, and added Borne
Interesting informs.ion about tbe
On the top of the special label,
which will encirclo the tin, are tho
words, In hold type: "British Columbia's Gift." Just bolow is tbo
Provincial coat, of arms, unit on eith-
af side, "To the Imperial Government." To tho right hand side of
tho label Ib the following: "When opened, thla salmon wlll prove light
pink (almost white) in color. Ita
quality is warranted hy tho B. 0.
Oovernment. Relative food values per
ccntae)!   of   brain,   blood, bone and
muscle making   elements in various
foods: "Per cent.
"Canned salmon  218
"Sirloin  steak 165
"Sugar cured ham  142
"Macaroni  134
"Frosh eggs  131
"Spring chicken   128
"Bread   92
Explanatory of the choice of pink
salmon, rather than the sockkye variety, which is so popular in this
Province, Mr. Bowser said that two
considerations influenced the Government in making tl* decision—first,
that it was deemed desirable to take
advantage of this opportunity to introduce pink salmon to tbe British
market; and, second, thut more salmon could be purchased for the money available for tho purposes of tho
gift, which, it may be added, Ib not
for the troops In the field, but to
add to tbe food supplies of those in
distress in the Motherland. Of the
relative food values ot the two varies—sockoyes and pinks—there iB no
diBpute, many, indeed, preferring the
pinks to the sockoyes. Then, again,
there ls always a good market for
the sockeye pack, larger, indeed, than
can always be supplied, while the
pack, of pln'rs ls capable of much
greater expansion than is the case
at present.
Mr. Bowser announced, also tbat
the Government had made arrangements with the C.P.R. to have the
entlii! shipment handled by special
train as far as Montreal. The train
will consist of thirty cars, and it is
Intended that a large placard shall be
stretched on either sld) of the train
of cars bearing the legend: "British
Columbia's Gift to the Motherland."
Ab the train proceeds across the continent those who witness its transit
will thus be given a striking ocular
demonstration of tbe determination
of the peop!|> of this Province, in
common with the rest of Canada, to
place all Its resources at tbe disposal of ths Imperial Government in
the great war which imperils the for
tunes of the Empire—The Colonist.
Successful Trail Fair
Trail last week closed their Fourth
Annual Fair and as the Trail News
gives it, courage has had its reward.
The management of the Trail Fruit
fair- was possessed ot courage in
quantity and their reward bas been
the exceptional display of produce
and handicraft exhibited in their fine
fair building last Thursday and Friday. In the face of very adverse
conditions they were still unafraid,
and, forging courageously ahead,
were able to collect and exhibit a
variety and a volume of Kootenay
products that would do credit to a
banner year in production and a locality that has won much greater
fame as a producer of the necessities
and the luxuries of life.
J.H. Schofield, M. P. P., opened
the fair. The president of the association, Noble Blnna, a trio of parliamentary members and other gentlemen, not forgetting the Spokane
Elks Quartette, also took part ln the
opening ceremonies.
The fair was a huge success in every wuy aad the citizen* of Trail are
certainly to bc congratulated on
their attempt in displaying thetr products fully considering tbe advcrBe
conditions as they now prevail
throughout the whole country.
Martial Law
There has been some foolish tak
about proclaiming martial law in
various parts dl Canada. Do tho
people who talk so glibly about it
know wbat it means? Martial law
is no law at all, in the ordinary
setiBe ot the term. Tbe proclamation
of martial law means the suspension
of all laws,,ol ordinary authority, of
all civil rights and all personal liberty. It means tbat everything must
be subordinate to military necessities—business, pleasure, even the private life of the citizens, who may no
longer come and go and work and
play bb he would, but must obey any
restrictions that may be plnced on
hla movements or actions.
The rlghta of property, thc right
to exercise control over one's belongings, the right of public meeting, and
of free speech—all rights enjoyed In
peace time disappear under martial
law. The military authorities may
take anything for their own use,
from the horse or the motor car of
the private individual to a factory
or a railway system or a line of
steamships, nnd that without payment. They may Btop all commercial
or Industrial operations, they may
order the population to be in tbeir
homes by a certain hour, they may
seize all 'ood or other supplies, they
may fix the price at Which commodities may be Bold, and they may suppress the publication of all news and
the sending ol any telegrams or letters.
Freedom of circulation is always
suspended under martial law, and
thise persons who are abroad nt'this
moment and desire to return may And
it. difficult to do so. Tbe functions
of civil court and civil authorities,
such as police, cease under martial
law; all offences are tried before military tribunals summarily, and any
penalty up to the extreme,penalty of
death may be awarded. There Is no
appeal Irom such judgments. General existence under martial law has
never been known in England In modern times.

Desperate Resistance
Paris, Sept. 25.—The official com
municatlon given out this afternoon
announces that heavy reenforcements
hnve been brought, by the Germans
for their right wing, menaced by the
flank movement ol tho allies In the
north, and that "a general action ol
great violence" Is in progress.
The German reenforcements, according to thc official announcement,
huve been drawn partly from the center and partly from the extreme
east, troops from Lorraine having
bcen brought west by the roundabout
route through Liege and thc valleys
ol the Meusu and Sambro liy rail to
Valenciennes and thence to Cambral.
Tho official communication follows:
"First, on our left wing there bas
begun a general action of great vio
tence between tho detachments ot out
forces that aro operating between tha
the River Tise and the army corpB
which tho enemy has grouped In the
region around Tergnler and St.Quen
tin. These army corps have come
some from the center of the enemy's
line and others from Lorraine and
the Vosges. These last named corps
wore transported by rail to Cambarl
by way of Liege and Valenclennoc.
To the north of tbe river Aisne, as
far as Berry-au-Bac, tbere has been
no change of importance.
"Second, on the center we have
made progress to tbe east of Ilheims
ln the direction of Berry and Moron-
\ illiers.
"Further to the east, as far as the
Argonne region, the situation shows
no changle. To the eaBt of the Argonne the enemy has not been able
to move out ot Varennes. On the
right bank of the river Meuse the
enemy succeeded in getting footing on
the heights of the Meuse in the region of the promontory of Hatton
Chatel, and, forced in the direction
of St. Mihlel, he bombarded tbe forts
of Paroches and of Camp des Romans.
Sale of Horses
Capt. Heygate and Dr. Topbam,
veterinary surgeon, and both imperial, officers, were in Oranbrook last
Tuesday for the purpose of purchasing horses for the Imperial Government to serve as remounts for the
cavalry and artillery at the front.
The arrangements in bringing the
horses together were in the hands of
J. Kenny who had arranged to have
the Agricultural Grounds used for
exhibition purposes. On tbe day of
sale a very large number of horses
were brought ln from the district
and several also were exhibited belonging to residents of the city.
Tuesday was an ideal day for the
purpose, not much dust lay on .the
track and everything served to make
the judging more correct. The horses
were brought before the officers one
at a time and tbe examinations were
most strict and careful. The majority ot tbe hor»>B Bhown were turned
down for blemishes of one kind or
another. AH agreed however that
the judging was very impartial and
even though a horse was turned down
the owner was satisfied be had a fair
Bhow with the rest.
In all some 21 horses were bought
by the officers at pi lees averaging
(140 to (150 each. The highest price
given was for horses bought from
Ira Manning and W. E. Worden, both
being splendid horses lor tbe purpose
Strong Appeal to the Women of England
The following is a stirring article
that appeared ln the London Daily
Mail of September 4th, juit received.
It clearly Indicates the spirit witb
which Vie people of tbe little Island
are meeting the crisis tbat now 'aces
them, and reveals the nature of the
sacrifice the women are willing to
make to onloree the success of the
arms of the allied troops.
Women and Girls ol England!
Your hour has come! Tbe great
hour when to the question which you
yourselves bave asked incessantly
theae few weoks past, "I want to do
Bometh ng—what can I do?" Your
country has at last given answer.
"Women and girls of England," she
Bays, "I wunt yonr men—your sweethearts, your brothers, your sons,
yonr friends—will you glvo thom to
mo? Wlll yon une your Influence thnt
they should respond one and all—
thom who are young nnd fit and Kroe
—to my crying nocd?"
Women of England, lynnr Bisters In
France nnd In Belgium havo soon
their sweethearts, their brothers,
their husbands and eons go to fight
for the Indopendenco ol their homes,
nnd ol thoir country. Wlll you Englishwomen, English mothers and
girls, be the ones to stand aside and
see others fighting for you, others
defending your homes, others giving
their lives so that you may sit
snugly at home and go about yout
business and your pleasures, thinking
that ln England "things would go on
just the same"?
No! A thousand times nol Englishwomen cannot and will not allow
the rest of the world to rail tbem
"cowards!" Women and girls of
England, yon cannot, shoulder a rifle,
but you can nctively serve your country all tbe same. You can serve her
in thc way she needs it most. Give
her the men whom she wants! Give
her your sweetheart, sh" wants him;
your Bon, your brother, she wants
them! Your friends. She wants
them all! And K—aB sometimes Imp
pens—your swoethea'-t, yonr brother,
or your son hangs hack—possibly becnuse he Is. afraid to •give ynu pain-
then use all the Influence you possess
to urge him to serve his country In
the wny she needn It most,
Let there be no reservation, no
nhlrking, no hanging back. Lot him
not say "Oh, I would Join such and
such a regiment, but they're lull up.
I have putt my name down II they
want me."   Nol   1*1  bim only say,
j "My    country   wants   mei     Here   I
am."   Nothing more.
Women ol England, will you do
this for your country? Will you aee
to it that the men whom you love
do not act the part of cowards and
can look every brave man boldly in
the facer Girls, wlll you one and all
refuse to be Been walking or talking
with a mnn who -though of nge and

And yon mothers of English sons!
Yours Is by fnr the hardest case ol

It Is the soldiers ol England who

that no savage enemy threatens Ihe

Outlook for Industries
Ottawa, Sept. IH.—While Canada
Ib at;war in the national Bcnae there
is industrial peace all over tbe country. No labor dispute of any importance exists, and not otie arbitration board is sitting. Even the pro-
f nged difficulty among tbe miners at
Nanalmo Is terminated. The Department of labor, which, whon the war
broke out, appealed through Hon.
Mr. Crothers lor the amicable adjustment of lahor difficulties, is keeping in constant communication with
the different centra* and watching Industrial conditions.
The general situation is loo'iing up
according to advices received I .pre.
At the outbreak of the war there was
more or less pessimism and talk ol
suspending industrial operations, but
confidence appears to be gaining, nnd
many Canadian manufacturers are a-
doptini' the patriotic policy ol not
only supplying what hostile countries have hitherto supplied to Canada, but are endeavoring to capture
►.hi trade of such countries with the
Boutb American republics.
The opportunities arc extensive and
► be outlook is hopeful.
Wben the statistics for the past
month are available a very substantial improvement is likely to be registered. Tbe trade routes temporarily demoralized at the outset are
now open, and imports and exports
are coming and going in considerable
An increase In tbe customs revenues for September Is expected on account of largely Increased imports
from thr  United  Stntes.
The Industrial.situation, it is expected, will he greatly Improved by
li'avy contracts which, It is under
stood, will be placed In Canada hy
Great Britain and her allies. England has already bought a large a-
mount of bny and oats In Canada.
More contracts (or equipment and
supplies nn' helng placed,
Blr George E. Foster, Minister ol
Trade and Commerce, is unite optl-
nlstlo over the industrial outhaik.
Ho emphasized today that ttie greatest opportunity was In the Cnnndlnn
market formerly supplied by German
innnufnctiirern or by Austrian and
other European cuuntrlos.
Sir George considers that the big
problem Is to bring the Cunnd an
manufacturers together. The depart
ment Is doing everything possible a
long tbls linn, nnd has even inventoried a drug store to find out what
supplies came (rom Germany and can
be produced In this country.
Start on Waterworks
The city have made the necessary
arrangements lor thc beginning ol
the new water Bystem. Messrs. Hot-
son, Ledcr & Goode of Lethbridge,
contractors, will bave their representative here today and in all prob-
nl 1 ity will commence work on the
excavating  Monday or Tuesday.
The starting point will be the corner of Lumsden avenue down to Hanson avenue where 8-Inch pipe will be
laid; thence to Van Horn! street with
0-inch Pipe; on Fenwick avenue Irom
Edward street to Kaln street 4 inch
Pipe will be laid; on Hanson avenue
from Edward street to Kalns street
4 inch pipe; on French avenue from
Kdward street to Kalns street 4 Inch
pipe, will complete the work tbat
will be undertaken this fall. In addition to the laying of the pipes there
will be 11 hydrants plnced in position and 73 water services are to be
connected up, and all the necessary
connections to existing wood pipe
miiBt necessarily be made. Approii-
mately there are to be 5520 (eet of
pipe laid at tbis time.
ThiB work will be part of the original contract made by the city, and
will be only wbat is absolutely necessary to make secure the streets
that have been graded during the
season. By this grading it is imperative that these pipes should be laid
ns tie existing pipe line ln places has
become almost exposed to the weather, and as thif winter is fast ap-
pronrhlng the pipe line must be lowered to avoid freezing and tbe watei
'n tbe city being cut off.
In the applications for work .preference will be given to married men
living In the city with families. All
applicants must apply to the contractors.
Mr. A. L. McCulloch, engineer, is
expected to arrive in the city tomorrow to take charge of the supervision in the city's intereat.
Philadelphia, Pa., Sept. 25. —The
Spanish government has entered tbe
American market (or the immediate
delivery of (10,000,000 worth ot ordnance and rifle-nirf.ing machinery, a
vast variety of dredging machines,
concnete mixers, conveying machines
excavators, locomotives and stone
While secret inquiries received he.e
today Indicate that tbe 'erection ol
"important public works" is intended, it la confidently believed the Madrid officials in reality contemplate
the preparation ot war materials and
the building of powerful fortifications.
A writer In this Liverpool "Post"
makes a suggestion regarding wbat
ho calls "voluntary" taxation, as loliows:
"If there Is any patriotism at all
ln us, it should certainly be possible
to spare half a penny a week in every shilling out of the family income, especially as this could be done
both with advantage to the Btate
and ultimately to our own personal
Explaining hia scheme in more detail, he propounds the establishment
of a special department ol the PoBt
Olllce Savings Bank, to be called a
War Account Fund. Everyone should
sot aside one halfpenny per week out
of each shilling spent, then purchase
stamps for an equivalent amount,
affix them to a sheet ol notepaper or
a email memorandum-book, and periodically deposit these at the post
office. The government would have
this money to assist in meeting tbe
expenses ol the war, but It would
bear interim and be redeemable, Juat
as consols, or any similar loan,
though not withdrawable until at
least six months alter the declaration ol peace. It would thus seem
to couple an immediate patriotic act
with an ultimate personal advantage.
"Look at it in this way," writes
tbls money-raiser, "The United
Kingdom must contain at lean 10,-
000,000 families %-ho spend, on an average, at least £1 a weok In tond,
clothes, comforts and pleasures. Calculated on this rough basis, tt means
total spending capacity nl £10,-
000,000, which is equivalent to 200,-
ion.noo shillings. One halfpenny saved on each ol these shillings would

No. 39.
In another column will be found a
reprint from the London Daily Mail
from the pen of Baroness Orczy. It
portrays n spirit of sacrifice Willing
to be made, of a loyalty almost unbelievable for their country and toward their King; it is an article that
will undoubtedly amuse the national
spirit to a much hlgtu-r standard than
has ever been conceived. In the next
iSHiie of the name paper the results of
the appeal have exceeded all tbe
writer's expectation. Consider we'l
the [dedge taken; it is one of very
serious moment and will cause a tremendous sacrifice of the women of
England, young and old. Honor to
them all. We can fully believe that
their sacrifice of such a sacred character will not be in vain.
• •   •   •
Almost since the white race placed
foot in this fair Dominion of Canada
we have peacefully enjoyed the protection of the forces supplied by the
British nation. At the present time
W3 are sending small contributions
to assist in one way 0r another with
food, material and men, but are we
doing the same from out of our luxuries or are we doing it from our
surplus supplies, from what we can
well do.without? Well might we ask
if Canada as a whole is making any
sacrifices to assist in defeating the
tyrant and butcher th" allied forces
are at this time at war "ith for the
suppression of a dynasty and the overthrow of a military despot. Such
sacrifice on the part of the women will put to shame many of tho
supporters of the Union Jack in Canada. Surely Canada and the many
other Colonies of the Empire will he
ready to make sacrifices of one kind
or another.

At this time wben competition is
so keen and the large city daily papers are doing their utmost to kill
off the papers in the smaller towns
throughout the length and breadth
of the Dominion, and for that matter the whole world, hy their methods of transit and prompt delivery
to the rural 1 districts of the daily
news, It is particularly encouraging
to know that in the Kootenays we
have, one paper wo can thoroughly
rely On for news at all times. We
refer tii the W'lson Daily News. In
spite of the fact that it Is a small
paper compared with a large, number of the papers that are coming

How to drill for Oil
(By John Sur, in tbe Mining and
Engineering World.)
In tracing the extent ol formations
the exposure of broken strata are
first looked for. From theae are he-
termined the direction in which tbe
formation  dips and strikes.
Exposures of strata are usually
lo » ed for in creeks and gulleys, riv- j
er valleys, or hill tops, places where
the erosion or weathering have washed or worn away the surface detritus.
From the Indications thus shown;
the geologist usually works toward
the mountains where he generally
finds one stratum overlaying anoth-j
er. until he comes to where the igneous rocks of the primary series underlay all the'others. The rocks of
the main mountain ranges all underlay the sedimentary series. It is ir
thc rocks of the sedimentary series
that the oil is found.
For instance, in tracing the underlying formations from Bla.t. Diamond, Alberta, to the mountains,
advancing westward, the strata ie
tilted in such a rtianner that each
formation which underlays or overlays the otber is shown. The thickness of each can he measured until
point near the Old Camp or Sheep
creek is reached, in the upper (foothills. The Dakota sands are shown
in which ozokerite is found in the
sandstone itself. Ozokerite is a solid
residue from the inspissation of petroleum. By the action of the weather, exposure, etc., tbe gases of th?
oils themselves have disappeared,
but indications remain to show how
much oil there wns and is in the undisturbed Dakota sandstones.
The significance taught to thc geologists hy the discovery of ozokerite in the Dakota sandstones, which
extend to and beyond the Black Diamond fields, enables them to determine whether the series iB petroliferous or not.
Every rock or mineral must he
carefully considered; the dips of each
separate formation must be figured;
the strike of dikes must be considered, and the lodes and rock in place
must be measured. All should he
mapped und sketched, and distances
from outcrops should be paced and
mea bu red.
Other important indications are
gas flows and springs showing oil. In
auch work allowance is made for

The Right Road.
The road to successful business may not be so
easy as the well worn road to failure, but the trail
has been well marked by those who have passed
that way. They never needed any brakes on the
road to success, but often required a whip, particularly at the rough places. The whip they invariably used was newspaper advertising. If you
will think of the most successful merchants or
manufacturers you know of, you will find they
were liberal users of newspaper advertising.
They bej;an as small advertisers, and grew to lie
large ones, as a natural consequence.
Will you, Mr. Merchant, profit by their experience?

Lalnea ot oil nre unknown.
Mineral oils occur in two distinct
varieties, nne ol i* parafflne baae un«i
the other ol nn aBPhaltum base.
They range Irom a Water white trulls
pacney to intense blaek. the most
common being a ilm-k green, which,
seen by reflected light, is shown to
hnve a brownish yellow lillle. lt is
highly inflammable and the chief eon
stitnents nre carbon ami hydrogen,
with varying quantities of oxygen
and nitrogen. Some varieties are
[mprgnated with or combined with
The oiis are formed in one of the
two following manners:
1. That which is formed in the
rocks by tbe decomposition of ani-
r.al and vegetable mutters.
2. That which is due to the natural distillation of shales and hydrocarbons found in tbe earth's crust,
by internal heat.
Structural conditions play an all
important part in determining where
an accumulation of oil may be found.
Oil is only obtained from unbroken
and undisturbed strata. A fold in
the anticlinal or synclinal of the oil
bearing strata asserts an all powerful influence on the creation of reservoirs of oil.
The folding of the strata has taken lilac1' along an axis. Where strata
dips away from the axis, so as to
form an arch or saddle, tbe structure
ts termed an anticline or anticlinal
axis. Where they dip toward the
ails, forming a trough or basin, it
is called a syncline or synclinal axis.
In a simple or symmetrical fold the
asal   plane   is vertical, or approxl
mately so, and the limbs have on the
whole the same general angle of In
clination in opposite directions.
In many cases the axis is inclined
und the dip on one side is much
steeper than on the other, though on
both sides still toward opposite directions. This inclination may increase until the fold ie bent over, so
that the strata on one side are inverted and 'the dip is th* same direction, though it may bo at different
angles in the limbs.
An anticlinal or synclinal axil
must always die out unless abruptly
terminated by dislocation. In the
anticline, the crest of the lold, after
continuing horizontally, or but slightly inclined, at laat begins to turn
downward, tbe angle of inclination
lessens, and the arch then ends or
noses out. In tne syncline the trough
eventually bends upwards and tne
beds, with gradually lessening angles,
swing around it.
These folds olten extend lor a long
distance with great regularity., For
instance, as in the California oil
fields, one of these folds is nearly 50
miles long.
Subsidiary anticlines frequently
cross the main anticlines and at
times are productive to hs great extent as the main anticline.
Tbe difference of density separates
oil and water in the stratum, oil occurring In anticlines and water In
tin- syncllnes. The gas rises to the
highest point which ia the apex of
thc anticlines.
Needless to say, great care should
be used j„ selecting the location of a
well, so that tbe oil-beurlng stratum
may be tapped at the most desirable
place, experience has proved that lt

On tho contrary, I speak from definite knowledge, because I have read
Pastor Russell's books for twenty-

and have been intimately associated
with him in his work for four yenrs.
I am glad to testify to the splendid
Christian character of th* man. He

and found them to be thoroughly
satisfactory and Scriptural. They are
so helpful that for an intelligent person to read them through once, will

by many ministers of all denominations. I am thoroughly convinced
that about the'only people who oppose Pastor Russell are those who

"death passed upon all men." When

the Father hefore the world was, was

it was not poBSlble that He "could

exalted at the right hand of the
Father in Heaven, a High Priest
after thc order of Melchisf-'dec. We
believe the Scriptures to teach that
He "died a ransom for every man,"
to be testified in due time," and
that "God at first did visit the gentiles to take out of them a people
for .His name, and after this He will
return and build again tbe tabernacle of David which is fallen down,
that tbe residue of men might swk

various statements made by Rev.

Messrs. Beattfil & Murphy are exhibiting this week in their window
samples nf wheat, rye and Hax. Attached thereto Is a placard saying
that they are specimens grown without irrigation. It would be interesting to be able to repeat all the ex-
preesloni that have been heard of
commendation made on this exhibition. Many observers have been very
eulogistic in their terms of Ub quality and appearance, many even going
so far as to say they did not believe
sucb a growth was possible. To such
we recommend that tbey take a trip
through the Ht. Mary's Prairie where
this w»h grown and they will receive
quite an education as to what can be
grown in the district. It is our belief that a large number of citizens
Of Cranbrook never go beyond thfl
outskirts of the city and do not realize  fully  the excellent  country   that
is adjoining the boundary,

In the exercise of iny own discretion,
I havM grave doubt whether a man

doubt if it would be fait* to the community to give to an atiun enemy the
sni'ie rights ns nre given to a British
subject, for, example, ' the right to
vote  nnd  other  rights  of a   similar
nature. Another more serious objection at the present time, when an
alien enemy is desirous of leaving
Canada for the purpose of engaging
in the war, he can be stopped and
iinpriaowod, and the mere act of endeavoring to leave the country is in
itself sufficient reason to justify the
authorities in arresting him; but if

the absence of his expressing an intention to commit treason) to prevent his leaving the country.

Refuses Naturalization
An important judgment has been
delivered by Judge Thompson bearing I
on the rlghtB of alien enemies, Ger-j
mans and Austrians, being admitted
to naturalization while the British
Empire ia at war with the countries
whence such persons come. Ihe judgment, in effect, says that Canadians
are under no obligations to Germane
or Austrians to afford them tbe pro
tection of Citi7.jn8hip while they, as
citizens of an enemy country, are
possibly spying how they cnn best

"I hnve refused these applications
on the following grounds:

Caveat Emptor.
(Let the Buyer Beware.)
"Caveat Emptor" or "Let the Buyer Beware"
was the motto of the old time merchant. Hit
business was to get all he could and give as little
as possible in return.
That was dishonest, of course, and experience
has shown that it was not even profitable. The
successful merchant or manufacturer to-day is
the one who gives real value. The dealer to-day
who wants to establish a permanent business
knowB that Honesty is the best policy and to
prove that he is there to stay, he advertises.
You can depend on getting a square deal from
the regular and persistent advertiser.
