10,000,000 Tie Rumor
Proved to be False
Rumors nnd counter rumors bave
been current in the papers since the
commencement of tho great European war. Influences are helng exerted such as the general mind had no
previous experience of. The larger
Canadian papers arc inclined (nnd
jintly so) to bo circumspect in their
giving out news, especially wben sucb
news is of a character tbat is opposite to thc Interests of tbe welfare of
tbe Empire as a wbole.
A short time ago thero wns a persistent rumor published ln the United States papers and even given under tho caption of news recolved by
the Associated Press that a large
contract had been given by tbe British Imperial Government for 10,000,-
000 tics to an Albania firm. So persistent were tbe papers (rom across
the Wne in their convictions as to
the truth of the assertion that they
wrote long articles regarding it and
resumed tho possibilities that lay in
the future for the American manufacturers lf further contracts could
be obtained.
It has been said repeatedly that
many such rumors began their origin
in tbe furtive minds of the German
ambassadors to the south of us. If
such is truly the case, nnd If it is
not, the public are warned againBt
believing reports which indicate that
contracts of any nature whatever
are being given to nations thnt nre
outBlde tbe British Empire, until it
is absolutely assured that the resources of the Empire are at an end;
a most improbable conclusion.
The Cranbroo't Conservative Association showed great enterprise in
following up the report above given
and attempting to trace the facta
as they rightly exist. Cranbrook being the centre of the Kootenay lumber industry its citizens were able
to realize tbe benefits such a contract given to British Columbia lumbermen would bring to the industry.
If such n contract as suggested was
received it would be the means of
employing thousands of bushmen who
otherwise will be in the ranks df tbe
The Association wired ItB Dominion
member as follows: "Cranbrook, B.
C, Nov. 27th, 1914. R. P. Green,
Victoria, B. C. Please wire minister
ot trade and commerce asking tbem
to cable Imperial Government Inquiring if there is any truth in published reports that contract lor 10,-
000,000 ties has been awarded in Alabama. Kindly send us copy. E. H.
McPhee, secretary Cranbroo't Conservative association."
Mr. Green alter receiving this wire
immediately took the matter up with
Ottawa and under date ol December
3rd replied as follows: "In reference
to your night lettergram of the 27th
ultimo the following is a copy of one
wblch I have this morn'ng received
(rom Hon. R. L, Borden, who is apparently acting minister of trade
and commerce:
"Following telegram just received
(rom Hon. G. H. Perley,, acting high
commissioner, begins 'have definite
verbal assurance from board ol trade
tbat no sucb orher for railway ties
given or contemplated by Imperial
government. Subsequcnly approached
railway executive committee. No orders given hy them but they nddod
that English railway companion, in
view of the closing of ordinary sources of supply nro looking around in
case necessity arises to draw upon
new territory. Would ho woll to hnve
lumbermen forward fullest partlru
lars available of Canndlan supplies
to tho secretary Jf thu railway executive committee early as possible.'
(Signed) R, L. llorden."
A further letter was received by
Mr. IC. H. Mcl'hee yesterday In reference to tho nbovo matter (rom
Hon. R. r. (Ireon. It rends as follows:
13. H. McPhee, Esq.,
Sec. Conscrvattvo Association.
I am thla morning in receipt ol a
further wire from thc Hon. George
E. Foster in relation to the railway
ties and timber, which rends n» lollowa:
"Have wired board of trnde, Vancouver, tbat later advices point to
advisability of direct representation
by the lumber interests to llrltlsh
railway executive committee as to
railway ties and timber. Business
csn, I believe, bo dono but American firms aro pressing hard (or It,
"I remain, yours faithfully.
Somo two wsokis or more alter the
above rumor re the large numbor of
railway ties helng given to nn Amorlcan Arm was first mooted another
rumor started (rom practically the
same source thnt a further contract
bad b«en given in the state of Washington. This received but a panning
notice in Canadian papers for the
idea of pushing a further unbelievable falsehood upon the people was
but to appeal to thsir crodudllty.
Visiting Day at Manual
Yesterday, Friday, was visiting
day at the Manual Training School.
The parents of tbe boya were all invited to look over tho work completed or under way that hnd been
executed by their children. Quite a
number signed the visitors' book and
found the display of woodwork very
Instructor Webb, with ths aid ol
the boys, had arranged sovoral drawings along tbe wall, and the wood-
WOl'l was placed on exhibit, so tbat
the bindiwork of tbe pupils would
show to advantage.
In reviewing the work completed lt
could easily be notod that the boys
were sufficiently interested in their
models to spend painstaking efforts
to finish them ub good aB possible.
Some of the work was equal to tbe
work of many older mechanics and
reflects great credit upon the method
pursued in their instruction.
Thi pupils, when they flrst enter
tbe Manunl Classes, are first taught
the method of model making wltb
cardboard; afterward as they progress
they may make models from wood.
Seme of the work completed reflected great ingenuity in making nnd designing. Instructor Webb iB strong
on bringing out any originality that
is tn the boys and has them make
drawings and models of their own
designs, giving them what instruction or assistance they may require.
The school, taking into account the
liability for. accumulating dirt from
the work on hand, resembles a model
of cleanliness and tidiness; tbis instruction alone, apart from the effect received from the wood instruction, must influence the boyB in their
after life and better fit them to take
up many responsibilities that this
groundwork they are now receiving
will benefit them ln.
The tools they use are all of a
very useful character and simple ln
their assortment; in consequence the
training they receive is not one that
makes the pupils desire a lot of expensive tools but rather inclines tho
instincts to observe that the beBt ol
work can be completed in the best
manner with the ordinary necessary
implements made (or that specific
Our representative was informed
that some of tbe results of these
Manual classes were not only In receiving Instruction in the making of
models but that it had been observed by tbe school authorities that
whereas before these schools were
commenced there -were some boys who
took only a very lax Interest in the
general school training; now tbey are
very enthusiastic in nil their work
and painstaking in tbeir efforts to
bring out the best tbat Is within

The Flag's Importance
(Toronto News.)
The timely departure undertaken by
tbe Canndlan club of Winnipeg is
worthy of emulation by Canadian
ilnlis elsewhere, lt Is planting flag
poles nnd unfurling the national ensign In all parts of the city, The first
flag was flung nut on the wind In
northern Winnipeg, where the population Is mado up largely ol alien
immigrants. These newcomers hnve
lierono, or aro ln the process ol becoming British citlzrns, nnd It In
iuiportnnt thnt they should learn
whnt tho Empire nnd Its Hug mean
amongst the nntlons.
The flag, properly explained, will
help to teach tbem Ihnt thc British
Empire stands, ns It has long stood,
(or civil and religious liberty, (or
Justice and (air plav, (or the extension of freedom nnd self-government
to the ends ol the earth, and (or
tbe guidance nf backward peoples into tbe light. Thc flag today flies on
British men-of-war, and over British
regiments at the front, because tbe
British Empire holds treaties inviolate and the rlghta. of small nations
sacred. There ls no Jingoism or mere
flag-waving about tbe Winnipeg club's
The flag Is not shown enough In a
country which Is trying to assimilate a greater number of newcomers
ln proportion to its population thnn
the United States has absorbed at
any period in Its history. The tnsk
is a heavy one, calling for tbe uso of
every Inherent and adventitious aid
If the newcomers, with llttlo or no
previous knowledge 0t British traditions and llrltlsh institutions, are to
become Intelligent nnd patriotic citizens. If the high motives governing
thc British Empire In tho presont conflict cnn bc brought bone to foreign-
born Canadians and tholr children,
their conversion Into enthusiastic patriots will be largely assured.
Splendid Showing of Poultry
That in both Quality and Quantity you have much
surpassed other winter shows I have previously
attended this season in larger centers
[-Judge E. H. Orr of Chilliwack]
Cranhrook has made good. This
splendid poultry exhibition is but
anothor ling in tbe chain of enterprises that comprise the industry of
the people of Cranbrook and district
that purposes In thc near future to
boar some excellent iruit.
Mnny doubts have been expressed
as to the possible success of the
Poultry Eihibition as arranged for
this year, it being thc first Individual effort of thc Poultry Association
to make an exhibition tlong strictly
poultry lineB. That the work of the
members and officers was abundantly
rewarded iB now an acknowledged
fact. Because of the doubts thrown
on tbeir work-the results are all the
more'i creditable and in the near future the thanks of the whole community will be extended to them.
Tbe exhibit was in the new, building belonging to the Agricultural Association, kindly loaned to them for
the purposes, hut Its limited space,
brought about by the unexpected
large number of exhibits, was increased by using some of ,the older
buildings. When our readers censid-
er that there were 450 exhibits they
will perhaps better realize tho amount
of space required to coop all the
chk'-ens in a right and fitting manner.
E. A. Orr of Chilliwack waB thc official judge, who at the completion of
his work in sorting out and awarding the prize winners, congratulated
th;'management on the splendid show
ing they had provided. Further, be
said "That in both qunntlty and
quality you have much surpassed other winter shows which I have previously attended this season in larger
centres where thc assistance secured
from the Government was much In
excess of'' the amount allotted to you.
I recognise In order for you to receive a larger grant next yenr it was
necessary (or Cranbrook to make a
showing on this, tbe initial (air, as to
what you are capable of producing,
I therefore consider that you are now
ln a good positi m to bave a show
next year that will be hard to beat
and your request for a larger donation'would be woll supported by this
year's efforts."
The judge began hLs work at 9.30
in the morning and with only a
break (or lunch continued through the
day until five In the afternoon, and
again on Saturday morning at 9.30
until about 12.30 o'clock. During the
judging the judge wns most courteous
in his suggestions, clearly defining
any decisions he made, and explaining tbe wby and the wberetor to any
enquiry as to his decision. Suffice
it to say that the result was that
overy exhibitor was perfectly satis-
fled with the decisions given. The
quality of the birds was sucb as to
repeatedly draw from tho judge words j
of praise and expressions as to th |
possibilities of the district as »
poultry crntrc If tbo quality of th j
present exhibits, was continued nil
tho Interest In tbe industry not allowed to wane.
The show management could not
let tho opportunity go hy without
congratifating thc jud:e on his ox
cellont work | In sslectlng the winners,
liming tbo exhibitors perfectly satisfied that his decisions wore Inlr nnd
Just in every case. It is to be said
to his credit tbat he has not oven
one dissatisfied exhibitor, which is
certainly a record thut Is difficult to
atta'n nt nny show. He was most
wl'llng at any time to show why
nny particular bird was deserving the
honor conferred upon it in preference
to others which n casual observer
would consider worthy of winning thn
prize, nnl taking into consideration
the short time nt hln disposnl In
which to make his selections from nn
exhibit of 4H0 birds ho certainly did
most remarkable work.
When ono reviews the difficulties
that faced the management nt the Inception nt the shnw It will ho aeon
thnt they had a hard rond to travel,
Tho Agricultural Fair, with which
the Poultry Association havo always
Joined In exhibiting their produce was
this yenr postponed becnuse of tho
stringeniy thnt Milted, consequently
the usual support from the government wns not to ho had. This sequence ill aflairs brought the Poultry Association face to face with thn
financing of nrt Individual show If
such was to bn organized. The sec-
retnry, Mr. W. W. McGregor, wrote
the government nnd plnced lu-'ore
them n very strong nrgument In support of their requiring a donation,
nnd In reply received a   notification
that $100.00 would be forwarded to
them for this purpose. Tbis Ras
practically the whole capital account
with whlcb the mnnngement bad to
finance tho show. The Agricultural
Association generously nssisted by
loaning the new building for their
uso free of charge. Other assistance
waB forthcoming in the Bhape of
prizes generously given; thlfl relieved
the directors to a considerable extent
and made the show possible. What
remained then wns hard work ln organizing the poultry men to send in
their exhibits; in some cases these
were so luke wnrm that their lowi
had to be Ifetched. Now that the
show is over and the quality of tbe
general exhibits ls proved these lukewarm exhibitors have become the
most enthusiastic workers in favor
of keeping the Poultry Association on
a separate basis and apart from the
Agricultural Association.
Tho day of showing came and the
workers were astonished at the support they received. The number o(
birds was 450 and (airly well supported hy a moderate attendance, the
weather being bo cold considerable
mitigated against a very large number o( personB being present.
To sum the wbole show up it was
a big success and now efforts will be
made to keep up the Interest in the
poultry industry (or another year; lf
tbis is done next year's show should
be on a parallel with the best In the
province. ,

Public Market—Attend
The Directors of the Craabrook
Farmers' Institute met on Wednesday evening for the discussion 0t the
necessary details in connection with
the Public Market to be held in the
old C. C. 8. Store on Armstrong avenue Saturday, Dec. 19th. Mr. A.B.
Smith presided.
A committee waa arranged to see
that the hell was properly heated
and Beats provided for those Belling
produce and where lt waa found necessary stalls aro to  be provided.
Having in mind several minor expenses thnt must be paid it was decided to charge a minimum Bum of
live cents where but a basket of produce was brought in for sale and no
BUU was rC'iuinnl. Tf greater quantities of produce were offered for
sale a charge of 10c will be made.
The stall provided will be loaned to
the Beller for 2.r>c for the privilege of
dismaying produce.
The building will be opened nt 9.00
a. m. on Saturday, December 19th,
for the purpose of providing the farmers and others to properly arrnnge
their wares for the public Bale.
It was decided to send out special
invitations to our member, T. D.
Caven, M.P.P., and the Mayor and
City Council and the chief officers of
the Board of Trade, the Agricultural association, the Retail Merchants
association, and the Women's Institute. Tbe formal open;ng will take
place at 10.00 a. m.
The Mayoress, Mrs. Simon Taylor,
has kindly consented to open tbe
market and make the first purchase.
If each rancher will only bring
something to sell bo as to say that
he or she helped at the opening of
the Cranbrook Public Market and
each housewife wit jnit come along
in the same spirit, it Ib certain that
the market wlll be a success and be
very helpful to all concerned.

First Regimental Ball
Thursday Dec. 31st; Friday and
Saturday Legal Holidays
At a meeting held by the Cranbrook Volunteer Club, December 7th,
it wns decided that the tickets for
thc Regimental! Ball'to he given ln
the Auditorium, December 31st, are
to be $1.50 per couple, extra lady
75c,   which does not include supper.
It has u.een the usual custom for
thr? ladles to prepare and serve the
Now Year's supper, but ln view of
tbo fact tbat this arrangement caused a great deal of work, and that as
a result many of tho ladiea wore unable to enjoy their holidays, another
plan bas been adopted, a supper or
lunch, as one'may wish, will boserv-
ed by tho Little Davenport management in the recently vacated "Palm,"
adjoining the Auditorium. The negligent is indebted to Mr, Jos. .lack-
inn for the use of the "Palrn." Tables will be set to accommodate "0

decided on by, Mr. Herron will be the
same aB usual at tho "I.. D."
Prevlo idy tne ladies of tbe St.
John's Ambulance Corps have received ths proceeds from the supper thoy
served, but as a compensating feature
on this occasion, a percentage of the
net proceeds from the ball will be divided between thp St. .John's Ambulance Corps and the Sunshine Society.

In view of the possibility arising
of such contracts being placed in the
hands of Can idlan lumbermen the
present time is opportune (or the
Railway Commissioners to loo'i
further into the freight rates that at
present exist and the tolls that aro
exacted from the lumber merchants.
If the Commissioners saw fit they
could easflly lower thc through rates

The Port Arthur   Board   of   Trade
has'sent out a  pamphlet,   "Back   to
the Land;    a  Nation il and  Imperial
Policy."   This question,  that  Is now
attracting tho attention   of   thinking
men al;i over the country, Is  in   thiB
booklet    discussed    in a most  intelligent    manner.   It is   bristling   with
facts and figures,   showing the necessity of a larger production    of    food
stuffs    in    Canada;    and tiest of   all'
with    strong    and   practical   sugges-1
tlona how this can he accomplished.
The chief plan of  the Port Arthur
Board  of Trade  is about as follows,
tbat the  Dominion Government shall
loan,  say $50,000,000  to the   Township    Municipalities   of Canada    on
their Municipal  Debentures   for    live
years with Intereat at live per  cent.,
repayable annually on condition tbat
the municipalities lend the money to
ratepayers    to  he expended  in  clearing and    bringing    under cultivation
additional    land; the loan    to be a
tlrst Hen against the land;     the   advance to   any one   farmer   not   to exceed $1,000; thu loans tu the municipalities to  be advanced as the   Improvements are made
Here Ih a suggestion and it Booms
practicable; and, if carried into effect would overcome mnny of thc
(lilllcultios of Increased acreage for
agricultural purposes, that were presented by tho w.'Hti'in (armors at the
gnat conference lately held In Winnipeg, of manufacturers and tillers of
the soil.
This is a subject that Is of the
greatest importance all over this
Dominion today; and we hope at
the proposed meeting of manufacturers nnd others in Amherst on December 17 this back to the land problem and how to solve It will receive
at the hands of the managing committee a place on the program that
the importance of such » subject demands.

The island of Cyprus, Bow formally
annexed to the British Empire, is
situated in the easternmost part of
the Mediterranean, [ts greatest
length is 111 miles, while the average width is from 3j to 50 miles.
The area is 3,584 square miles.
There are two mountain ranges, one
of thom culminating In a peak 6,406
feet high. The island, in ancient
times, was clothed wiih dense forests
but the groves are now few and far
between. The result ts marsh and
hare downs, and agriculture Ib at a
low ohb as compared with the fanning potentialities. The present population is about 275,000, 78 per cent.
being Greeks nnd 22 per cent. Moslems af partly Turkish and partly
Grot?! blood. The Moslems are diminishing in number. Nicosia, tbe
capital, hns a population of about
10,000, an I Llmasol and Latnacn
alout 10,000 each. Gnat irrigation
wo'ks are being constructed and
marshes aro being reclaimed. Copper
is still mined, aK of old. lt is not
generally kwijvn that the word "copper" comes from the name of the island, the "y" in which was, of course
pronounced "n" by Hit* Greeks and
Romans. There are extensive
works nlso.
In 187S, Britain took over
administration of Cyprus as a
for defending Asiatic Turkey against
Russia. A High Commission was
appointed, and Executive and Legislative Councils were established, and
a regular lystem c*. Courts was organized. Tho excess of revenue,
£92,800 was paid yearly to Turkey,

no longer.

which tho gun carriages rest during
the firing.
The 42-centimeter gun is attended

have been appointed ottlcers hy special command. The firing is done
electrically at a distance of over 100

bis story'
"We Varmers need awakening to the
fact that we have unmistakably
reached the period where we must
think and plan. I am one of thc
slow farmers that had to be Bhown,
and I am now giving my experience
that others may profit, for Vnowledgq

"Twenty-nine years ago I began
my farm career. I bad an old team
and $50. Our furniture was mostly
home- made—chairs, cupboard and 1
lounge made from dry goods boxes,
neatly covered with ten-cent cretonne

I got all needed machinery and gro

The first year was a wet neuron and
I did pot make enough to pay the
creditors, I went to each on date of
promise and explained conditions,
paying as much as possible, and they
all carried the balance over another
ytar. They continued to accomodate
me until I was aMe to buy a forty-
acre pieco of my own.
"As soon as 1 owned these fow
acres mail order houses began Bending

feudal laws the pi'iiHuiits ,,f thi Con
tinent being still bound to the no
bles, while in England they oould not
leave  thoir  own   parish  unless  with B
permit, Only Indeed when the invention of the steam engine made the
looms (tf the cotton and woollen Industries in England possible ot large
development did towns fill up and ur
ban populations begin notably to Increase. Lancashire doubled,her population, Cheshire Increased hers five
times, and Yorkfbirt' over twice In
the Utter half of tho eighteenth century, owing to th'1 development of
factory towns. Canals too wore dug
to help transportation; but something
yet more was needed to matte this
movement ol industrialism and urbanisation rapid, and this was the
construction of railways and of
steamships. The United States after
two hundred years had only rt popu-
ation of 12 millions in 1830, while
the population nf Canada was only
ono million; yet So enormous was the
influence of steam development that
1870 the United States bad 31
millions and Cnnada three millions.
Steamships were soon to be making tb* round voyage from Europe
to America within a month, when
before, two months might be occupied in a single trans-Atlantic passage. The railroad had crossed the
I'nlted States by 1870 to the Pacific,
and in the same year Canada absorbed the Northwest territories. F0rty
years after this date the population
in the United States had reached 91,-
000,000 and that of Canada 8,000,000.
The capital invested in manufactures
In the United states bad increased
from $600,000,000 In 1850 to $10,000,-
000,000 in 1900, while that of Canada, only $10,000,000 in 1850, was $1,-
247,500,000 in 1910. The total urban
population of tho United States in
1850 was only 3.000,000 lo 23,000,000,
while that of Canada was probably
not more than 200,000 in 2,000,000. If
we try to think of the urban Popu-
cheaply In slum quartern, made
by tho high cost of laud and Jf,materials, which moan the high cost of
rents, he adds to our problems without adding to our wealth. Huroly

tho older peoples of Europe nnd rushing headlong along the same pathways which have created city slums
nnd a degenerate Blum population;
and this too when ever extending
railroads, tramways and motors are
bringing yearly thousands of uncultivated acres almost to the doors of
our towns and cities. Ib it possible
that an ever-increasing proportion of
the population can be parasitic, living upon the labour of the,producer
of the food ond raw materials of
wealth and yet that a proper balance between production and consumption, capital and 1 ibour, employment and employee be maintained?
These are questions worthy of serious consideration.

of men and hnve brought about results to the indivldtiil and produced
effects upon the'nations which not
even the most fertile imagination
eould have dreamed of hi.!f a century ngo.
Some of the most obvious ot these
results and effects have been the construction ot steamships, railways
and canals, Immigration, the expansion of industries and the growth ot
cities. In Canada the population
from 1871 to 1901 had scarcely maintained its natural Increase, owing to
the small immigration and to tbe
enormous emigration of nearly 3,-
000,000 during this period of Canadians to thc United States. The
Canadian I'aclflc Railway reached the
Northwest only in IHKf. and the Pacilic coist In 1X8G; our prairies had
not really heen tested and bore tho
stigma of droughts in summer nnd
fierce rolii in winter; while owing to
the enormous development of the
American west tbe prices of wheat
and cattle reira'ned so eheap that
exports ol thc latter, except as carcasses, were not remunerative. Tho
wheat lnnds of old Canada were
worn out And no progressive agriculture had ns yet adequately replaced thc unprofitable wheat crops. Under such conditions thnn during forty years wc saw our city population

London's police Force
An effect of the war in London has
been the organization of a volunteer
pollco force. It Is known as tho special constabulary and the director Ib
Lord Montagu. Some 48,000 applications for appointment have already
been acted upon favorably.
Among the first men to enroll themselves were actora, hundreds of whom
go to their allotted stations after
tho theatre Is closed and remain on
duty until 4 In the morning. One of
thc very first to proffer service for
tbe specinl constabulary was Cyril
Maude, who called a meeting at the
Playhouse nnd enlisted mnny of his
confreres ln the work. Sir Gcorgo
Aloxnndcr, who was out of town
when the project wuh broached, telegraphed Instantly an oflcr ot aid,
nnd Sir Arthur Pinoro did tbo snme.

organizers of the special constabulary and devotes several hours of his
day to tho work at headquarters, lt
was by his assistance tbnt the writ
ei obtained information in regard to
the work and met Beveral of the officials who are working with him in
this undertaking.
"We work in threo shifts, from 7
to 10, 10 to 1 and 1 to 4, when the
dawn makes our presence as extra policemen unnecessary," ho said. "It
would bo impossible for any force of
policemen regularly on the pay lists
to do all the work that is required
now that London, facing the danger
of spies within and Zeppelins without, haB practically pulled down her
blinds nnd is after sunset a city ot
The truth of this comes directly
home to the listener. London, which
in times past hus beon so brilliantly
lighted, is now aB obscure as a country village in New En^und. Whole
streets, once Hashing with radiance,
are dark pockets. Piccadilly, Leicester S>|uarc, Regent and Oxford streets
the Strand and Victoria Street all
share thc general gloom.
Across thc heavens steal the brilliant Bpcnrs of light, picking out
spires, domcsnnd tho rooftors In n
moment's blinding radiance, followed
by a slowly disappearing glow, then
utter darkness. Somo times the four
searchlights with which London is nt
present provided cross nnd recro.is
each other's paths; FOmctlmes singly
they dart forward to some faraway-
point. One of theBe searchlights is
stationed on Lambeth Bridge, one on

General Joffre
(A Personal Sketch. By Gerald
| Though this great soldier has enjoyed a career ol alhftOBt super-human
, distinction, and though U r Borne
1 years he hns been in command of
; more than three million men, it was
not until October Ol last year that
I much notice of him was taken by
[English newspapers. In that month,
shortly after the manoeuvres of the
French Army, he dismissed five generals from their poBta—genernla who,
between them, held some of the most
important positions ln  the army.
Those who knew him well were not
surprised by this action, for he has
always been absolutely ruthlesB when
faced by even a small degree nf incompetence, but his policy of weeding out of the army thoBe who were
of uncertain service to htm gave the
French people an enormous shock. He
wns HtronjJy criticized, he was even
reviled, but he stood his ground and
said nothing. It la only the weifJ
who explain themselves; it is only the
timid who regret the courageous
dings they have done. From that
moment Joflre became known to army men in this country as "the man
who broke tlve generals."
He i\, indeed, a destroyer aB well
as a constructor, nnd in that res-
spect, nnd in that respect alone, he
is like Winston Churchill, Hut he is
ruthless with himself as well an with
others. Let. me give an example of
this related to tne by a French officer this morning, just Ixforo be
set nut for the battlefield in his armoured motor-car.
"Forty yeara or so at:o(" said the
officer, "Joflrn was widely known
and grra'ly esteemed in 'the French
Army as a mathematician and as a
military engineer, He was then little
more than a Ind, but his engineerings
genius was unmistakable, and all h's
friends fully anticipated that he
would devote his life to that branch
of military work. He roie rapidly,
was greatly honoured, and a brilliant
future awaited him. Hut Ritidenly
and without warning, he threw up his
work, and went to the French Colonies in order to get into direct contact
with actual war.
"In doing this he abandoned a
certainty for a risk; he was already
brilliant and famous in his own department, and he was yet to win distinction in his naw sphere, That Bingle act of his stamp") him as a man
of character, of courage, of illimitable belief in himself." It also
stamped him, I mny ndd, as a man
who can be as ruthless with himself
as he. cnn be with ft Complete stranger.
"Joflre worshlpa aiKceaa," I was
t<*d, "but he does not worship it so
much for itself, as for tho indication
it gives of ft mon'B ability." When n
man Is recommended to him, he never (iska "What is he?" but "What ban
he done?" He cannot forgive failure;
he does not even pity It. It makes
bim angry. Hut ho Interprets the
word (allure in his own way. "A man
may bo overcome by forces stronger
than himself," he Snld to an acquaintance of mine tome years ago, "hut
that is not failure. A man falls
when lm does not rise to the topmost,
height nf bis own energy, character
and ability. Not to do thnt. In n moment of need is to nutter and deserve
a close Investigation of his career
disclose! ni) failure of that description. At the age of eighteen ho commanded a battery of artillery In thc
Franco-l'ruBslaii War. Later ho was
In Africa, later still, in Madagascar,
an Governor of its capital; then ha

by valiant acts in Indo-China. That
is to Bay, he has led the life of a soldier; he has had a soldier's interests,
a soldier's ambitions, Tbere is no
"secret" in hiB success. He has won
his place .n thc way that all great
places ure won—by sheer ability, singleness of aim, and tireless industry.
He Ib a listener rather than a
talker, but his friends declare he
rarely says anything worth remem-
I ering; he is not the kind of man to
gratify hiB own vanity by speaking
either smartly or profoundly. He expresses himself only in deeds. His
movements are slow and deliberate,
his manner gentle and courteous, his
smile quick and genial.
In mufti, he looks like a country
squire. You can examine hiB face
aa closely aa you like—the -tile eyes,
the full but firmly set mouth half
hidden by a llaxcn mouBtacbe, the
blunt, wide.nostrilled nose—d>ut you
will find there no trace of anxiety,
of the burden of responsibility. And
his quiet laugh is slow to exhaust
The one word that is always Applied to him is "modest"; though he
fully knows hia own worth, he Is ln
all things restrained by a sense of
propriety. I have been in thc presence (if mnny men when they were
praised, but I h*ivc met only one man
who, when flattered, was able to Iceep
hla face frpe from that ghost of a
■ecret amile that betrays inward
pleasure.   Thnt  mnn  is Joflre.
One must, I suppose, apply *h*s
word "genius" to him, though one
hesitates to do so in these days wh 'a
the expression is used in connection
with every neurotic young man or
woman with a taste for art, literature, or what not. But he has none
of the quick flashes of genius, none
oi its sudden intutlona, ita feverish
impulses. Hia acts, If decisive, are
also slow; his mind ruminates. His
greatness does not spring from "vision," but from wide mental capacity, experience and earnestness.
His private life does not concern
the public, but in France more severe
atendarda are applied to men in high
poalttona in the army than obtain in
tbia country. Joflre'a family life is
not only above reproach, it Is above
suspicion. One cannot imagine him
led nwny by passion, or by great
triumph, just na one finds it impossible to believe he could ever lose
himself, even momentarily, in disaster.—T. P.'s Weekly.
Care for Potatoes
Potatoes should he thoroughly dry
and should be stored in a cool, well-
vontUatftd cellar or storeroom which
is perfectly dark. Do not pil* the po.
tatoea in heaps on thc floor or
against the wall; slats should he
nailed about one inch apart and four
inched from the wall; a temporary
Moor should be laid about four Inches above thc permanent floor, with
openings between the boarde. Thia
will nllow the air to circulate
through tho pile, Large piles should
havo ventilators running through
tbem. These should be made of
wood, with slnts on two Bides for
Tho temperature of the cellar or
storehouse should be kvpt as nearly
as possible at'from 33 to '■•■• degrees.
The cooler potatoes are kept without
freezing, the better. If too warm,
tbelr vnlue for seed Is lessened, ae
they sprout too early.

Farmers Jce Harvest
One of tbe natural resources of
Canada, and one which ls of great
benefit to humanity, is the annual ice
crop. While ln towns and cities, almost universal advantage advantage
is taken of the Ice mipply, such is
not the case with larmers.
A good supply of Ice Is moro important i In the country home than ln
the city homo. People In the city
can purchnse pcrlshablo food supplies
as needed, while, in the country, it
ls. often noccssnry to use canned,
corned or smoked meat products during tho summer, when tbe table
should bo supplied with fresh meats.
Ice could bc used to preserve moat,
butter, and other perishable products
for tbe tabic. Tho production of
high grade dnlry products on the
farm Is almost Impossible without
ico. Many markets require that, before .shipment, the milk he cooled to
a degree attainable nnf.y with Ico.
There arc many excellent and healthful dbh-s that may bc prepared for
tho farm table If a supply of Ice wore
at hand.
lu many sections of tho country,
the luxury of nn Ice supply can bs
had for tbe gathering; the cost of
harvesting and storing is small, Compared with the utility.
In selecting a stream or pond from
which the supply is to be tnken, care
should be exerclsod to obtain iee fret
from contamination or pollution, and
free from decaying vogetablo matter.
The latter is very objectionable because, as the ice melts, It will he
left In the ire box, rendering It fll-
tliy and dangerous to health.,
For the proper storing of Ice several points must bo carefully considered, (ti l.xposc ns smnll a surface ns possible to tho air or to the
packing material, that Is, have tho
Ice piled so ns to form, as nearly as
possible, a cube; for example, a mass
of lee 12x12x12 feet exposes leas surface thnn the rnme tonnage piled so
aa to cover a larger area. (2) Oood
Insulation la necessary; that la, tht
lw ahould bt prottctaO from aittra-
al influences such as heat and air.
(3) Thero should he good drainage
because the lack of It interferes witb
Insulation. (4) The Ice should be
packed so as to prevent the circulation of air through the masa.
The more solid the masa of ice can
be made, the better will lt be preserved. An expensive structure is
unnecessary for the purpose of storing tbe Ice crop.
On many farms, there are placet
in the buildings which could be used
for   storing   Ico.    A silo whlrh has
been emptied by February might be
used. Ice can usually be stored at a
time of tbe year when there It little
otber pressing work on the (arm.
Now It tbe time to prepare for laying in a supply of Ice for uae in the
hot aeason of the yenr.
Full pnttiotl ars regarding ice cold
storage on the farm are contained in
bulletin 207 of tbe Ontario Department of Agriculture, and may bo hud
by applying for same to the Department nt Toronto.
