European Nations in Conflict
Strength of Nations
most likely to be
Below ls shown the armed strength
of those countries which are most
likely to figure in the Austro-Servtan
Imbroglio. TheBe nations are grouped according to their probable alignment:
Austria—Army, war Btrength, 2,-
000,000. Navy, two dreadnoughts,
sii battleships, two armored cruisers
live cruisers, fifty-one torpedo boats
and destroyers, Bix sub-marines.
Germany—Army, war Btrength, 5,-
200,000. Navy, thirteen dreadnoughts
twenty battleships, four battleshi i
cruisers, nine armored cruisers, forty
cruisers, 130 torpedo boats and destroyers, twenty-four submarine*.
Servla—Army, war strength, 240,
000.   Navy, one steam craft.
Russia—Army, war strength, 5,500,-
000. Navy, eight battleships, six
armored cruisers, nine cru'sers, 107
torpedo boats and destroyers, thirty
Bitbmar nes.
Prance—Army, war strength, 4,000,-
000. Navy, two dreadnoughts, eighteen battleships, twenty armored
cruisers, ten cruisers, 220 torpedo
boats and destroyers, seventy-five
Tremendous Armies
Servia, one of the little nations ol
the world, has not much ol an army.
Latest figures, prepared this year,
shows that her army ln time ot peace
numbers 32,000 men. Her war
Btrength is 240,000, and in addition
to this (orce Bhe haa an unorganized body of men who, in case ot dire
necessity, could be called on tor service, number 60,000 more. This body
ot men would be but a speck compared with the tremendous armies
which would be called upon to shoulder arms H Russia, France and
Great Britain, composing the triple
entente, took up the cause ot Servia,
Russia leads all the big countries
mentioned both in peace Btrength and
war footing, although her war looting is but 300,000 in excess ot that
ot Germany, She has 1,290,000 men
ln times ol peace and 5,000,000 as
war looting.
France has 720,000 lor a peace
guard, and 4,000,000 aa a war tooting. Great Britain haa a peace looting of 254,000 and a war tooting ot
730,000. The total armies of the
triple entente number 2,264,500 in
times ot peace and the gigantic number ot 10,230,000 in times of war.
The same three countries have a combined force of 8,200,000 unorganized
men ot military age who could be
drawn on in case ol emergency. This
would make the stupendous number
ol men available tor actual service in
the triple entente, exclusive ot those
Or Servia nearly 20,000,000.
The total ot the three countries
composing the triple allianc", Austria, Germany and Italy, are almost
as staggering. The total war looting ot the combination is 8,400,003.
The peace strength, 1,510,000. The
snme countries have an unorganized
lorce ol men of military age which
numbers 5,200,000, or about 14,000,000
men who could in a pinch be called
on lor service..
Three ot the Balkan states which
might possibly become Involved ln
tho Imbroglio are Roumania, Bulgaria and Greece. The combined peace
footing of thltsc countries ls 180,500.
The war tooting la 1,020,000. In war
footing Roumania leads the three
with 500,000. Bulgaria comes next
and Greece last.
In naval strength the triple entente would be nearly twice as strong
in number of ships and men as the
triple alliance. In the triple entente
Great Britain leads with 669 ships ot
all kinds, battleships, cruisers, torpedoes, destroyers, monitors and sub-
nut rines. To man these she has 137,-
000 men.

Air Craftin War
For the flrst time in any conflict ol
great proportions the aerial war
craft would be brought into use and
so swift bas bom the progress in the
aerial development tbat the aeroplane, dirigibles and other air craft
would without doubt receive a genuine test.
Airships were used in Tripoli, but
it was never known just what codld
be done on a large scale, with navigators and operators of highly developed skill.
Latest figures show that France
easily leads all other nations in her
air fighting force. She has 750 air
and a.-aplanes with 300 first-class and
250 second-clasB pilots. Next to her
comes Russia with 380 aeroplanes and
seaplanes and many excellent pilots,
according to Hazel's classification.
Great Britain has 130 aeroplanes and
seaplanes with sixty first-class and
170 second-class pilots.
Ot the countries allied in the triple
alliance Germany haa 350 aeroplanes
and seaplanes', Austria haa 150 machines of both kinds, and Italy has
200. The organization and transport
ot Austria and Italy are classed a,i
'lairly good."
Aeroplane fleets of powers in readiness for conflict:
Austria—Number of craft, 150; pilots, not known, 120; organization
lairly good.
Italy—Number of craft, 200; pilots,
120; organization good,
Germany—Number ol craft, 350;
pilots, 200; organization excellent.
Total craft, 700; pilots 350.

tbe boundary lines to be drawn in
connection with the Re-distribution
Bill recently passed in the local legislature. It is to be hoped that a
large representation of the interested parties of both political opinion
will be present to present their views
on the matter. In Cranbrook with a
population ot 4,500 we should undoubtedly have a representative, as
also should Fernle; then another to
represent the district. The latter representation will have a very scattered field to cover, but the population is very scarce in places and It
would not he fair to the larger populated places if the smaller places
with, say 4,10 or 500 population,
could command a representative for
their own right. The purpose of the
commission is to gather data to recommend to the government on tlu
voting areas of the Province. Thc
meeting will he nn interesting one

We arc taking tbe liberty of reproducing nn article that appeared in
the "Creston Review" of date July
17th. We wish to draw particularly
the attention of our rentiers to the
latter part of the article, In this
the writer given voice to some very
Btrong truths and facts that will undoubtedly have to be faced hy the
ruling government of any country in
the future. One sentence tbnt strikes
home nnd which will give to all
thinking men a wonderful amount cd
material to ponder over if» "Whereas
Socialism today would he a failure
as an executive force, it is furnishing to the thinker some of the greatest (reform suggestions that any flirty has ever advocated and it would
be gnod fatherhood on the pari of
our government to take this latest
political claimant to sonship into
the paternal confidence and counsel."

Prevent Bush Fires

It has been found by experience
that a large proportion ol the lires
which start in slush or young timber will, if allowed t„ run, spread to
valuable timber or property, ami

homes of settlers In the small villages now being built up throughout
the Province and cause loss ol life.
The protection ol the »jttlers, as
well as of the timber, is uot assured
unless all bush fires aro kept under
control during the dry season.
Young timber growing on non-agricultural lands is an asBet worth protecting from Are. Nearly every settler knows how rapidly young timber
grows to pole and tie size. In moBt
districts in British Columbia timber
reaches commercial size in sixty or
eighty years. It requires no planting, grows without care or expense
and produces a valuable crop which
now beautifies the hills, protects the
watersheds and will in another generation support industries. These facte
nre bo well understood in BritlBh Columbia that thr Forest Branch is everywhere securing th? co-operation ol
the residents in preventing destructive fires in the young as well as the
old timber.

To Keep gutter Cool
When ice Ib not available, put
enough butter for a meal ln a small
dish, and set it in a larger one containing a little water. Turn a porous clay flower-pot over It and this
will cause evaporation of the water
In a way that will keep the air inside ' the pot very cool. II the pot
ls wrapped in wet cloth, the corners
of which are left touching water in
outer dish, the arrangement ls almost as good as an ice-chest. Stand
dish where there is a Iree circulation
of air.
This is as helpful In connection
with milk, meat and other foodstuffs, and the similar trick of tilling
can or bottle with water, closing
lt tightly, wrapping ln wet flannel,
and standing in a current of air, will
cool the water as effectually as putting ice in it. If tbe wrapped can
is stood in a plate containing water,
tbe flannel will keep wet without attention.
Just a Sprig of the

An unusual Oovernment publication
has recently been Issued by the Dominion Parks Branch of the Department of the Interior. It consists ol
a small souvenir booklet artistically
bound ln duplex leather wild grass
paper and tied with an olive green
silk cord. The lettering is embossed
in gold and a very unique design has
been chosen for tho cover. The latter is cut out so aB to form a sort
of frame and in this is inset.a spray

Mountains Park, the purplish flowers
ol tbe heather against the wood-
browti background making a very
attractive colour combination.
It will no doubt he a matter ol
surprise to many to learn that Canada possesses a heather ot her own.
This plant ls not, as It has sometimes been called, a "poor relation"
ot the Scotch heather, hut has a Um-

The agricultural fairs of the nation

a helping hand to both the farm and
citv baby again in the second annual

Thc age limits in the Better Babies Contest have heen chen^ed thiB

allowed to enter, and the maximum
limit has been increased from four to
five years. As a result any haby in
the Inland Empire between the ages

who mre able to visit them, hut also
to tholr valuo in tho national llle.
Tholr commercial potentialities are
somewhat startling. It Is pointed
out that owing to the Increasing
modern   taste   for   travel,   striking
scenery has become one of the most
valuable sources ot revenue a nation
cun possess. The tourist revenue of
Switzerland per yenr is placed at 150
million dollurs. It would appear,
therefore, that the creation of national parks, which aro one of the
best moans of attracting and providing for tourist travel, may well be
considered ln thc United States, as a
"Bolld business proposition."
It Is on othir grounds thin tbe
commercial, however, that the parks
lay claim to recognition. Chief of
these Is an aid to producing efficient
citizens. These great natural reserves are reservoirs of vitality for the
race. As an antidote to the Ills of
over-civlllzation and the complex life
of modern cities, they offer the opportunity lor life in the wilderneas
and the best sort of recreation where
fresh air, sunshine and heaut'ful natural scenery are combined. The problem of thc preservation of the vitality of thc race Is admitted by all conservationists today, to be the first of
all conservation problems and ths
valuo ol parks, playgrounds and recreation in thiB respect is each year
being given a largi'r place.
The I'lliiriitional and patriotic Influent!' of the Parke Ib nlao touched
upon as well as the work which tbe
Dominion Parks Branch la doing in
tbo preservation of native wild llfo
lu connection with the buffalo, elk,
nntclope, etc., ns well as bird life.
'Ihero Ib also pointed out thi) need
lor tho creation of historic parka aa
a means ol preservation for our historic sites, many of which we are al
lowing to disappear.
A new line of development which is
worthy of consideration, Is suggested, viz: the provision ol nationnl
parks near out congested centres ot
population. All modern town planning makes provision tor parks and
Playgrounds within the city Itself,
but while these are useful and necessary they provide a means of recreation for a few hours at most. The
national parks would reserve large
areaa whet*-; people would he free to
go for as long as they desired. Such
parks would be, ln reality, 'people's
estates' and would afford to the ordinary citizen many of tho advantages which the man of wealth possesses in his country eBtatc. In the
words of tbe booklet tbey would ho
"places where the poor could get a
summer cottage or camp site for a
nominal rental, where boys and men
could camp and Ilsh und study nature, where the sick and delicate
could And new stores of health ln the
great out-of-doors, by right of citizenship, without leavo or hindrance
ol anyone."
There is still within easy reach of
many of our large cities, land available for such a purpoae which Is either public doma'n or procurable at
low cost. It would seem worth whllo
considering the advice given hy Ambassador Uryco In Ottawa, before his
return to England, namely, that tho

are amalgamated Jnsons, who, with

from primitive washings and organized scientific discovery, deliver now to
the markets of the world close upon
UOU,000,000 worth of puro gold Pet-

Oi r.ver* winding wearily to sea; you
may dig it from the muddy beds of
streams run dry in Summer. You
may scratch it from dry soil where
rivers ran million? of year ago. you
may burrow after it into the earthy
sides of hills which have been left,
sole sentinels of a past where what
are now hills f .rmed part of great
valleys. You may stumble upon it in
nuggets weighing two thousand or
more ounces, or blast it from thin
veine of quarts in which it lies, run
ning hither and thither, as on the
j Rand, where it dips at an angle of
thirty degrees, then goes sheer down,
like strata of coal. We do not know
bow it was formed; Bcientiiic guessing has resolved itself into a series
uf well-defined schools to show how
it came there. Three defined theories
hold the field, though none of them
are satisfactory as to th? origin of
tbe metal. As to the greatest mines
in the world—the Witwatersrand, in
the Transvaal—there can be no doubt
thnt where the great reef now lies, a
vast sea once washed. It deposited
gravel and pebbles which we now
know as banket. Tbis banket, a
Dutch word, with the accent on tlic
second syllable, means a sort of confection, a rock in which pebbles take
tho place of almonds. The ban'tot
was deposited by the sea.
The rocks were worn down in an
age-old past to pretty much their
present elevation; erosion and weathering having done tbe rest. Tbe
smooth ellipses in which the nuggets, when released from their bed,
are found, represent the rounded
ft mis of gold, rolled and tumbled hy
the tide, as are the Bmooth nnd
rounded pebbles found on the shore.
So far s0 easy. But how came the
gold there in the first instance? Was
it brought in by the sea and preci
pitated as minute gra!ns or as a
chlorine.1 Or, after volcanic upheavals of the land had given the rocks
their present fissured formation, did
gold, contained in molten lava, pour
cut from below to steal into crevices and openings to become solid in
the quartz in which it is now discovered? Was gold formed in the sea
and brought thenee to the land tn
enter by process of infiltration? Or
was th; gold of which the sea con
tains vast quantities, infinitely diffused, conducted to the sea aH other
terrestrial properties, which will
some dny form new continents, were
conveyed, after frost and storm and
rain 'and wind had done their part in
disintegrating the masses from which
they  were wrested?
Whatever the true answer may be,
there is the gold -in rock and banket, in pockets, in veritable mines
running from four thousand to live

Perhaps the most expensive of all
methods, in the sense of gold sacrificed, Is what is known ns hydraulic-
ing, where water is led by pipes
from a certain height and poured
from a smaller length of hose upon
the gold-bearing material. This, if
carried out extensively, not only
washes away great quantities of gold,
but carries hence* such vast quantities of detritus as to choke river
beds and render desolate th? agricultural land which patient handB are
seeking to cultivate  in the vicinity.
Still, let us not despise tbt primitive methods. Some of the greatest
romances of mining attach to these.
In parts of the Klondyke, for example, bo severe ib ttt.1 weather that
the ground scarcely ever thaws to a
depth sufficient to' admit of proper
mining. In that case the men light
huge bon-fires to scorch the fad- uf

roast it into softness, then lay on
with pick and shovel. Others, where
water is available on the "heights and
tools generally primitive, conduct the
How through pipes, from the highest
point at which it can be accurately
directed upon a given point. Lord
Armstrong got his first lesson In hydraulics from observing the same
process in a slate of Nature. Our
miner directs his stream of water
upon «the spot suspected of harboring
gold. So immense Is tbe force of the
water that it splits the toughest
rock as If it were mere glass.

British Justice Impartial
The firm of Upton's (Limited) has
been removed from thc list of contractors with whom the British Government tlenls. This ia in consequence
of its connection with what Ib known
as the Canteen Scandals, where officials of the company wer*j found guilty of bribing certain officers aud
non commissioned officers of the army
tu induce tbem to grant contracts to
it for the supply of the canteens with
groceries and liquors. In summing
up the case, Mr. Justice Darling observed:
"I am bound to Bay that the evidence satisfies me that these defendants, employed by Llpton, in so far
as they mnde payments for the bribery of persons capable of inflencing
contracts in favour of Lipton's, were
acting on a system which was known
to the directorate, encouraged by the
directorate, and persisted in by the
directorate after there had been consideration given as to whether to
stop the system or not. As to the
nmount of responsibility of any particular director I '.now nothing, except as to thoBe whose names have
heen mentioned."
Sir Thomas personally was not
brought into the case, except as being the head of the firm implicated;
but the action of the Government ln
excluding him and his concern from
all future participation in contracts
is pi^tt.y severe punishment, for It
carries with it a moral condemnation
that, In the United Kingdom nt any
rate, is likely to put an end to his
career as a sportsman.
The case illustrates   the BtJjrn   im
partiality of BritiBh justice. Had
Sir Thomas been shown to be guilty,
without doubt he would have been

Sir Percy Scott's recent letter in
the Press, In which he has pronounced bimselt to the effect that the day
ol the battleship is over, and that
naval warfare in future will be carried on almost entirely by the Instrumentality ol the submarine and
thc seaplane, has naturally aroused
controversy, and it has been bailed
with unlimited satisfaction by the
Little Navyltes. The gallant Admiral's name undoubtedly carries considerable weight in, view ol bis pre-
ciouB contributions as an Inventor to
the efficiency ol the sea service. With
the assistance ot his skilled engineer
personnel he, moreover, contrived to
produce long-range held guns at a
critical time, just when, they were
badly wanted in Natal, and by doing
so contributed appreciably towards
the saving oi Ladysmith.' Since those
dayB hts ingenuity has devised methods by which tbe effectiveness ot naval gunnery has been greatly advanced. Bnt a technicalist and inventor
is not necessarily a master oi the
art ol war, and is indeed, in the nature of things, sometimes inclined to
appraise merely mechanical contrivances at too high a value.

that the periscope requires clear
weather and a lairly calm sea II it
Ib to enable those in command to
make proper use ol their one weapon, the torpedo. Great advance has
likewis; been made in torpedo construction, hut the real obstacle in
the way oi effectively using this
means ol offence remains—that Ib to
say, thc difficulty ot hitting the vessel aimed at with it. When the torpedo and the torpedo boat were tlrst
introduced lt was foretold that the
days oi battleships and cruisers were
numbered, and yet, atter more than
lorty years of experience, the weapon
has only achieved a limited success
ln war time. The attack by a Japanese torpedo boat flotilla upon the
Russian fleet outside Fort Arthur
belore war had been declared undoubtedly exercised a tremmdous Influence over the course oi the struggle ln the Far East, but under the
circumstances the Russian Fleet bad
no business to be ln such a position. In neither ol the general fleet
engagements at sea which took place
later did the torpedo exercise much
Influence over the result. In the Balkan War a Turkish cruiser was very
nearly sunk by Bulgarian torpedo
boats, and a Greek torpedo boat
managed to sink a Turkish warship
in Salonika Harbor; but the torped.i
seems to have proved usdess in the
fleet actions at the mouth of the
Dardanelles. As for the submarine,
it has not been tried at all as yet In
war, and the only experience available are those of peace practice and
peace manoeuvres.
Peace practice and peace manoeuvres are apt to be delusive guides i
respect to submerged cralt. These
vessels are so easily damaged by contact with any hard substance tbat it
ls unjustifiable during mere exerciser
to act offensively against them fo
lear oi a disaster. They therclor.
have it all their own way, and can
be used with a daring that would
be out oi the question ln war, or
that at all events would certainly
load to their destruction If attempted In lace ot a real enemy. Sir Percy Scott assumes tbat the aeroplane
li to do Its work all on the side ol
the submarine; but it Ib at least possible that aircraft will prove more
formidable enemies to submarines
than to battleships or cruisers. The
submarine bas no means ot defence
againBt the aeroplane or airship.
Thsy can detect the presence ot the
submerged vessel, may be able to fly
quite near the surface above lt, and
may contrive to drop bombs accurately to burst In the water close to
their sunken target. If the periscope
be damaged, the submarine can no
longer be navigated submerged, and
il it comeB to the surface it ls at the
mercy of the destroyer or the cruiser or the battleship, il they happen
to be about. It must be added that
Sir Percy Scott does not explain how
he propose! that aircratt, and submarines, shall work together—it will
bc difficult enough tor aircralt to
work with fleets which will include a
parent ship lor the aircraft.
It has to he remembered that the
submarine is useless at night, and
that on that account the Idea of
bottling up HeetB by sealing narrows
like the StraltB ol Dover or the Gull
oi Gibraltar by mean* oi such cralt
is a delusion. Even admitting that
the narrows could iie sealed by day,
they would not be sealed at night,
and the enemy's fleet would lorce the
pass under cover of darkness. Then,
as to tbe use of aircraft, these also
are practically useless at night, and
are wholly useless in log or ln a
gale. Thc submorged vessel, Ukra the
seaplane or airship, has its uBes in
war; but both suffer under very serious limitations, and unless they can
be Improved out ol all recognition It
Is difficult to see how they can, in
the iuture, prove more than very val
liable adjuncts to naval lorce In thc
shape ol lleets, Just as the torpulo
boat and destroyer are. lt ls gctier-
ally acknowledged that tho submarine Is a moBt oflectlve lorni ol co.ist
defence, and that It Is perhaps the
boat possible Balcgunrd again ita hostile military landing, seeing that the
transports have to he anchored, and
will, In all probability, be obliged
to disembark their troops by daylight.   But even here   the submarine
will, under certain Conditions, suffer
under a seriouB limitation, because
it cannot dive In shallow water.
There are polntB along the East
Coast ot England where transports
could lie practically secure irom the
eflortB ol the submerged vessel on
this account.
Sir Percy Scott says that with a
flotilla of submarines he would undertake to get Into any harbor, and
sink, or materially damage all the
ships in that harbor. ThiB seems to
assume that the flotilla could approach the harbor wholly unobserved, in spite ol its periscopes, and in
spite of the boom which preBumably
would exist to protect the harbor.
Navigation of asubmeiged vessel by
means of the periscope in contlned
waters is by no menus an easy operation, and, aB every seaman knows
thc approach to a barber as a rule
means navigating very confined waters—much more confined than tbey
appear to be on the surface and until the chart comes, to be examined.
Still, without accepting Sir Percy
Scott's theory that thc big swimming warship is doomed, It must be
admitted that the development ot the
submarine, and the seouti.ig powers
possessed by aircralt, do seem to
suggest that the system ol depending mainly upon a tew huge and very
costly battleships Ib a mistake, as
individual vessels now run such risks
ot being destroyed by an unneen enemy without helng able to d-fend
themBelveB. For practical purposes,
it is as easy to destroy a eupcr-
dreadnought ot over 25,000 tons
which has cost nearly £3,000,000, bj
torpedo, as it is to destroy a sinal'
battleship of, say 12,000 tons, which
will not have cost mare than £1,000,
000, by the same means. The Japanese, lt must be remembered, lost
two out ef their six battleuhips in
1904 owing to floating mines, which
serves to show the danger nl trusting to a small number ol powerlu'
ships in war; it means tbat there
may be an insufficient .reserve against
more or less unforseen, but not Impossible, accident. The very extremi
views put forward in the letter whicl
'ias started this controversy has a'
'east the advantage that lt wa:
bound to attract al tentlon and to

Drill is the only Geologist
Calgary, July 27-Mr. A. W. t)ing-
man, managing director ot the Calgary Petroleum Products Company,
ln a most interesting address on the
subject ol the Calgary oilfield, at a
luncheon held under thi auspices ol
the Ad Club, in thc Palllser hotel,
said in part:
"Wc will make a new page in the
history ol the oil world. He ha.e
got to proceed carelully because best
opinions show lhat cond uona ate
unique, and experience in [urmer
fields has not been of much use. The
conditions at present are very promising."
Continuing, Mr. Dingman said that
his brothers had been pioneers in the
Pennsylvania oil activities in the
early days when operations started
with drilling a l-lnch hole ubout tiOU
or 700 liet deep, which at that time
waB considered a marvelous feat.
Bradford, Pa., had bcen the lirst "Oil
city" ol that district, and despite
the lact that there were 10,000 producing wells in the Btate, the city ul
Urudtord had only one oil exchange,
whereas Calgary already had six.
Mr. Dingman expressed the opinion
that thc club's motto, "Truth iu Advertising," was well worth studying,
and thereupon he produced an advertisement which he read to tbe members. He added that a certain company advertised their holdings as
having the same condition aB at the
Dingman well, only much better. He
thought it would be much better to
stay nearer the truth with regard to
Proceeding, Mr. Dingman stated
that in the promotion ol oil companies they might with advantage go
a little slower, Ior it would be a pity
to torever prejudice the financial interests of the world respecting the
district. Every company that was
started was headed with the name
and floated upon the statements ol
some geologist—and the public put
up its money.
But alter all waB said and done,
the drill was the only real geologist.
ed tu with marked attention and at
the close be was awarded a very
hearty vote ol thankB tor hiB interesting mid instructive remai'.B. The
gathering was presided over by Mr.
Andrew Miller, who introduced Mr.

but appropriate speech, in which he
referred to Mr. Dingman bb the "discoverer," the "optimist," and the
"good citizen."

cats, each cat will average twelve
Kittens a year. The skins run Irom
ten centB (10c) each Iur the white
ones, to seventy-five cents *76c) tor
the pure blacKs. This will give ua
twelve million (12,000,000) skins a
year, to sell at the average of 30c a
piece, making our revenue about Ten
Thousand Dollars (110,000) a day
A man can skin lllty zSO) cats per
day, at Two Dollars (J2.00).
It will take 100 men to operate the
Ranch, therelore, the net pro&t   \

We will start a Rat Ranch next

The lints multiply   tour   times   aa

one Million rats, we will have, th»
ore, lour rats per day tor each cat.
And then we will leed the rats un
