The Kaiser's Will
A Freuclmian tlmling his usual way
of making his living hy selling toys
on the streets' of Paris practically
gone hy the advent of the war conceived the idea of constructing thc
Kaieer'fl will for him and incidentally revoking alt others. He sold
thousands of them to passershy nnd
reaped a big harvest. The terms of
the wlll made read as follows:
This is the Last Will and Testament of me WILHBJL.M, the super-
Bwanker and ruler of the sausage-
eaters, recognising that I am fairly
Up against it, and expecting to meet
with a violent death at any minute
at the hands of brave Johnny Bull,
hereby make my last Will and.Testament.
I appoint the Emperor ot Austria
to he my sole executor (by kind permission of tlm allien.)
1. I give and bequeath to France
tbe territories of Alsace and Lorraine
(as this Is only a case of returning
stolen property, I don't deserve any
credit for it, and am not likely to
get it either.) ,
2. To Servia * Klve Austria.
3. To Russia I give Turkey for
the T7ar's Christmas dinner.
4. To Belgium I should like to give
all the thick ears, black eyes, and
broken noses, that fn-1 presented me
with when I politely trespassed on
her territory.
5. To Admiral Jellicoe I give all
my Dreadnoughts, Submarines, Torpedo-boat destroyers nnd fleet of
FuM.ers genera'l:, whnt's j left ot
tbem. He's bound to have tbem in
the end, so that is only anticipating
6. To John Bull I give what's left
of my army, as his Oeneral French
seems so bnndy nt turning my men
into sausage-meat. 1 suppose he
means to finish the job with h'a Kitchener, the champion German-sausage cooker.
7. To the British Museum I leave
my t imons moustache, souvenir of
the greatest jswanker in this or any
other age.
6, To Mrs. Pankhurst and the wild
Women I leavo my mailed (1st,  they'll
fni it useful, no doubt, when   they
resume their militant  tactics.

HELM as his last Will in tbe presence of us his ministers nnl keepers present at the-snme time, who
in the presence and in the   presence
of each other, have hereunto   subscribed our names as witnesses.
Baron Vyn Sauerkraut
Graf Von Munlchlagerbler,
Lord Roberts' warning
London, Oct. 1.—Lord Roberts, in
an article in tbe Hibbert Journal,
urges- Britain not to underestimate
the power of Germany with Its Gfi,-
000,000 people.
"1 I cannot help thinking," t he
writes, "that the great task of subduing thnt nation will begin when
we, with our French, llussiau nnd
Belgian allies,  havo driven the  tier-
mans into the heart of their own
"May I give a word of caution to
my fellow-countrymen against tbe
unsportsmanlike practice of abusing
one's enemies. Let us avoid what
Kipling, during the Boer war, describes 'Killing Kruger with our
mouths.' Let us rather devote all
cur energy to defeating our foemen
by the superior lighting of adequate
numbers of British soldiers in tbe
open field,
"When we read the charges
against the German troops let us
remember that gross Charges, absolutely untrue, were brought against
uh when fighting In South Alfrica,
but whether the charges are true or
not, let us keep our own hands clean
and let us fight agaiust the Germans
in such a way as to earn their liking
as well flB their respect."
Army Movements can
no longer be kept
Bordeaux, France, Oct. 2.—The concentration of Germans in. great
strength at Roye, as mentioned in
the war office's statement Issued this
afternoon, is explained here by the
ease with which the commanding generals disco\».'r the dispositions of the
enemy through aeroplane scouts, A
very important element in the winning of battles is surprise. The aviators in the present war have made
this factor a negligible one.
For this reason the battle of the
AiBtie is continuing for an unprecedented length of time. Thd public,
not familiar with all the strategy, is
inclined to be impatient of lighting
without an end, but thoBe who know
declare themselves perfectly satisfied
with the progress being made by the
Ifrench armies.
Germans Placing New
Guns on Battleships
Copenhagen, Sept. 29.—Travellers
arriving here from the Kiel canal say
that the Germans are busy placing
new ordnance, which th:* Krupp works
bave been experimenting with for the
past two years, on the armored cruisers and dreadnoughts.
The canal Is described ns being
crowded with warships, including the
largest battleships. The arsenals are
busy day and night, and long trains
arrive continuously with immense
guns for the ships.
The Germans are reported as declaring that the whole fleet will soon
be ready to fight.
Loqdon, Oct. 1.—The Rotterdam
correspondent oi the Daily News Bays
there is a wonderful transformation
in ehe tone of the whole German
press, an article appearing today obviously being intended to prepare the
way fo? a great retreat in France.
He adds tbat the official message
says the fighting during the last few
days has been continued with redou.
bled ardor around Noyon, the action
quickly taking on unheard-of propor
tions, and continues:
"The Vossische .Settling says the
Germans are making superhuman efforts to break through thc lines of
the allies, and that, in all probability, the figlits of the new few days
will  be decisive."

Insurance a Duty
Under the above caption, the San
Francisco Call prints a strong editorial on the \Duty of Life Insurance
from which i we quote:
"When a man marries he assumes
an obligation to a woman which
should be lasting throughout their
HveB. Thh law frequently finds an ex
euse or necessity for canceling that
contract. When a man marries and
begets; children, however, hei incurs a
responsibility from i which n,> law
can absolve him. He has forced up
oni him the duty, of provld'ng for
those children throughout the years
of their helplessness.
"No court can eradicate that obligation, 110 action on tbe part of his
wife or his children call free him from
their claim. It docs not terminate
with his death. No sophistry born in
his brain can relieve bim of the responsibility engendered in hts flesh.
Generally when a man marries he incurs a lasting obligation toward hts
wife but thnt obligation may possibly lie rescinded by some action
which the woman herself may take,
but there Is nothing that can abrogate a man's responsibility toward
hiH children.
"A father must provide for his children so that when he is not here they
will be snfe. There are some men so
wealthy that their estates sufficiently provide for tho welfare of thetr
children after they arc gone—there
are some men almost ns rich in capital as an Insurance company. You
are not ono of those mm. What
then, have you done to Insure the
comfort and opportunity of your
children? Thore ls only one way tu
which you can Insure thorn, 'nnd that
Is by Insuring yourndf, thcroforo—In
surance Is a duty. That lesson should
bo embossed upon tho fare of the
planets in letters as htgh as mountains so that all the solnr system
may see.   Insurance Is n   duty.
"Insurance ts a duty, because It Is
thn only means whereby a man cnn
provide for those dependent upon htm
aftor ho is gone,
"Insurance' is the duty of love, the
obligation and proof of devotion."
Work of Forest Branch
The fire ssason for 1914 ended September 30th, after which date burning permits are unnecessary.
The local Forest Branch office has
given us the following figures, which
will li? revised'further, »but which are
approximately correct, for fire loss
and expenses of fire-fighting in thc
Cranbrook'Forest District, which embraces about seven and one-half million acrts, from the Alberta line to
Kootenay Landing, and tbe International Boundary to the Dominion
Railway Belt at Spllllmacheen. During the 1914 season over three hundred fires were extinguished through
th'; efforts of the Forest Protection
staff, sixty-seven of which required
the engaging of extra help to assist
thc forest guards.
These stxtyiseven flreB cost thfo
Forest Branch about $38,000 or an
average of $450.00.. This average is
Increased through one or two expensive fires, notably Bull River. However, tbe Government expenditure df
$30,000 should be decreased by approximately {10,000, wfiich has been
incurred in fighting fires for which
the railways are responsible, and
which is also partly made up of expenses incurred fighting fires 0n limits on which logging operations are
being carried on, in which; case the
lumber company bears one-half of the
cost. The net cost to the Oovernment, therefore, is nbout $20,000.
About eight and a quarter million
feet of standing timber has been,fir.
killed, of which six million wtll be
logged before decay sets in. The net
loss fn standing timber is, therefore,
two and a quarter million feet, most
of which on account of impressibility will not be logged. This same
factor—inaccessibility—reduced the
value of the timber killed and there-
foil* the fire loss.
The loss tn saw-logs—cut—Is six
and fi half million feet and sixty-five
thousand railway ties were also destroyed.
The'acreage burned over was forty-
eight thousand, of which forty-four
thousand was logging slash and
range; two thousand acreB promising
second growth; and the remaining
two thousand acres waB merchantable
timber, wholly or partly fire killed.
The causes of fires are in the following order, according to number:
Railway locomotives.
Unknown (chiefly campers and
Cam purs.
Logging locomotives.
Lightning.        ' '
Permit fires escnping and incendiary.
According to damage done, causes
rank as follows:
Campers and lightning.
The largo area of logging slaBh
burned over Is a benefit in rendering
fire in the future less probable, Thc
four thousand acres of second growth
and merchantable tlmhor burned over
Is ono nineteenth of one per cent, of
the area of the Oranbrook Forest.
District, Tn a season such as the
one just past this .must be considered a fairly small percentage of damage Add appears as proof that the
efforts eff tbe Forest Protection forces
were lu a large measure successful.

A meeting of the Cranbrook Farmers Institute will be held in thc Old
Gymnasium on Thursday, Oct. 15, at
8 p. ni. ThiB will in all probability
be the last of the evening meetings
for tbe Beason. The Saturday afternoon meetings were much better attended. All members are requested
to put in an appearance as the annual meeting will be held on the thlW
Saturday in November if all goeF
well. Two interesting subjects are
up for dlscuBsion on Thursday, "The
Brood Sow" and "The Dairy Cow."
Messrs. A. B. Smith ond J. R. Pringle will introduce these subjects. Five
Cranbrook boysj who were in the potato competition organized under tbe
institute sent 29 pounds of potatoes
each to Victoria last Monday. The
boys are Hugh Macdonald, Harry
Doris, Alex Mennie, Hugh Hnnnah
and Orvllle Thompson. The Agricultural Department has offered to
conduct short courses in some branch
of farming at Crnnbrook this fall
providing enough names can be secured. Thursday night would he a

the many homesteaders who came in
to tho district only three have joined the institute. It should be to the
interest of all s-ttlers to get in touch

pleased to make their acquaintance.
A war scheme is a'so afoot among
the farmers. A suggestion hns been
thrown out to tho effect that if each
of tbo 8000 nieiuiieiw of the Institute

Oranbrodc, B. 0.,
Editor The Prospector,
Cranbrook,  B. 0.
Sir,—I would like through your
columns to address an appeal to thc
men of Cranbrook on behalf of the
new corps of volunteers forming in
this district.
There seems to be a great deal of
uncertainty as to the exact object
for which the Regiment is being raised. In order to Beti all doubtB at
rest, I might say that the Corps is
being formed entirely for home service, and that there is no direct obligation placed on any man jo'ning
the corps to volunteer for active service abroad, neither is there anything in the regulations governing
the terms of service to prevent any
man resigning except in case of danger of attack locally hy a foreign
On the other hand, the men desirous of volunteering '/or active service will drill and trail with the local
Corps, being carried on the roll of
the Regiment for the time being and
having preference over newcomers.
The i strength of the Corps in Cranbrook is at present approximately 70
of all ranks. This number will be
materially reduced hy men leaving to
join the prospective second contingent; ' for that reason recruits nre
badly needed to fill the gaps. To
bring the local companies up to full
strength, about 100 men are necessary. There are vacancies In practically all ranks, and these vacancies
will be more numerous as time goes
Having outlined the situation as it
stands, I feel that every man who
has any sense of duty to his country and the Empire will Bee the pressing need for the establishment of
strong, well, trained Militia Corps In
th'l local centres throughout tbe Dominion. Apart from all other considerations and regarded merely as a
business proposition, the maintenance of such a Corps in Cranbrook,
especially in tbe present, crisis,'is vitally necessary. Without going too
too deeply Into the political aspect
of the present' great Btruggle in Europe, we know that Great Britain, or
more properly speaking, the British
Empire, is fighting for freedom, for
right against might, nnd we know
too that if Oreat Britain succumbs
in the present conflict our position
here in Canada will be precarious in
the extreme.
In making thiB appeal I wish to
say that aB far as the general feeling
of the average mar* in Cranbrook today is concerned, I believe there is
no reason to fear; deep down in the
heart of every man there Is an innate
respect for fair play and a desire to
see the country's honor upheld even
at personal cost to the whole nation,
but in thc long years of comparative
peace thc remoteness of the various
wars that have taken place has produced in us all a sense of aloofness.
We have become somewhat inclined to
adopt a cynical view-point, over
wise in our own conceit, and it
would seem as though tbe actunl
shock of battle is needed to wake the
slumbering soldier spirit which is tbe
common heritage of nil in whose
veins runs the blood of fighting ancestors.   And now tbat the tight is on
wo all ii -ed to realize to the full
that though we are not. called on, na
yet at any rate, to tn'ie ((ur places
In the battle line, It Is nevertheless
our bounden duty to forgo In Crnnbrook, such a lit#. In the chain ol the
Empire's defence as wlll be worthy of
the grent, Nation which we belong.
As 1 bave snid already, thero I*, no
obligation on fin yon'J In Cranbrook at
present, to volunteer directly for net
Ive service, but I believe it is the
moral duty of every rlgllt thinking
Drlttfttl subject In this town regard
Icbb of his rollglous, political or social opinions-to identify himself in
some way with the work of preparation   for tha Empire's dotoncn,    wot
merely by giving a dollar or so to
the patriotic fund, but by actually
setting a personal example by coming down to the City HaU andfplac-
ing his name on the roll as a member of the Corpfl, by turning out
whenever convenient to a drill parade,
and finally by doing bis utmost to
swell the ranks of the two Companies
In Cranbrook by inducing relatives
and friends to enroll.
There is nothing'in the work now
proceeding in connection with the
training of tbe Corps that Is not distinctly beneficial,mentally, physically
and even morally to all those taking
part. The drills are in charge of expert instructors with actual war ex-
I erieiicc, in) time is wasted over useless parade movements or ceremonial. Every effort Is being made to
get outdoor parades for instruction
in Held work, skirmishing and out-
loat duty. As near as possible theae
iperatlona are identical with those
mployed in actual  war conditions.
The Militia Department have under
consideration the building of an Armory in Cranbrook, well equipped and
adequate to the needs of the Corps.
Uniforms and equipment which will
be issued free to tbe rank and file
will be rushed forward as soon as
possible. According to our present
information the regiment will be
armed witb the latest pattern Mark
Two, Five Star, Robb (short) rifle,
with the long bayonet. I need say
nothing further, I feel sure, except
that the co-operation of every man
in Cranbrook will be earnestly welcomed by thoBe who aro now In
charge of the woitt.
Yours very truly,
Captain "C Company,
107th East Kootenay Regiment
P. S.—Any question arising in the
minds of probable recruits not clearly explained in thc above letter will
be cheerfully answered if enquiry is
made of me at the Recruiting office.
Increasing Live Stock
The outbreak of the war In Eur.
ope and the consequent demand which
is naturally to be eipected for increased exports of meats, finds Cannda in a very much denuded condition as regards live stock.
As a result of the removal of tbe
American tariff on cattle a heavy export trade developed to the south.
In some districts in eastern Canada,
nearly everything bas been shipped
out of the country, except dairy
cows. This export trade, together
wtth many farmers selling tbelr
calves for veal, can have but one result In Cnnada, viz: a greater scarcity of meat tban at present exists,
even in a normal market.
The meat in lust ry in Canada
should not be allowed to dwindle—
rather, the production of hogs, sheep
and cattle on Canadian farms should
be greatly increased. To obtain this
inn ease does not mean that farmers
should devote their whole attention
to live stock. The majority of farmers will admit that with very little
extra effort and expense thoy could
increase by several head thc live
stock on their farms without in any
way interfering with their present
system of farming.
Prom reports to the Commission of
Conservation, present conditions n-
dicate a world-wide scarcity of live
stock with little likelihood of an overcrowded market for many years to
come, The opportunity for Canadian
farmers is therefore apparent. To
ta'te advantage of this, farmers
should save their heifer calves to
produce more cattle, while the others
may be turned off, not as veal but as
Expert stockmen advise that there
ure good times ahead for those raising sheep. The high price of mutton
and of wool and the comparative ease
with which a flock of sheep may be
sustained upon land which is otherwise unsuitable for agriculture,
should suggest a great increase in
the number of Bhecp raised by Canadian farmers.
Increased production in hogs -;an
be brought about more quickly than
In nny other class of live stock, anl
consequently should recelw immediate nt tenth n
Anlma] production on the (arm is
desirable because It. increases Ihe fertility nnd crop-raising ability of the
60)1. Good prices are sure to bo obtained for nny surplus which farmers
will bave to soil on aecourit of tbe
Inevitable shortage of supply resulting from war conditions In Europe.
These two conditions should tie an In
COntlVO to Canadian farmers to In
crease their Hvo stock production. A
little foresight now, with modern
methods of feeding, will make Increased production easily  possible. THE  PROSPECTOR, CRANBROOK,  B, C.

80th YEAR
CRANBROOK,  B.O    October  10th,   1914
With the sale of a large number of
the bonds recently issued for tlu* purpose of placing into Cranbrook a
thorough and complete new system
of water supply, the work is now permitted to proceed with all celerity.
The city officials have been using every endeavor to obtain a purchaser
for these bonds (the original bonds
sold not producing the mcney owing
to the advent of the war) and it iB
to their credit that they have even
sold them at at a sacritice of 8Sc.
Even though tbi) price is low when
taken with other debentures that
have sold, for 9C and even more the
economic  results  will  far  upset   the
sacrifice made.
■ t • •
By obtaining this $35,800 th? city
will be enabled to pay for all the
new hydrants and necessary brass
connections and equipment other
than the payment on the pipes, as
well as relieve the pressing need of
employment in the city. Work bas
already begun on the system and the
work will proceed with all despatch.
• • • ■
In the disposal Oi labor to carry
on this work the city are to be congratulated' and sincerely commended
on the way tbey have elected to employ the workmen, and in speaking
thus of the city generally we must
refer to the splendid co-operation
that is being received from the contractors, Messrs. Hotson, Leader &
Goode, who are assisting the officials

Cranbrook thiB week has assumed
the appearance ol prosperity; a visitor In the city would immediately
notice the wol; as it is progressing
on the waterworks. The absence of
all foreign labor on tbe work Is also
remarkable. It wns said by many
tbat white labor could not do the
work as good as Italians but the energies and progress made on the present works entirely refutes kthis statement; it Is truly remai* able, how the
men have so cordially responded to
the call and are entering on tho work
in the highest of spirits. The result
of the endeavors of the city authorities in providing the work at thiB
time will reap its harvest of fruit in
mnny ways. The contractors anticipate having the work within the city
limits completed by the end of November providing that they do not
meet with mnny bog holes as they
have done on Edward street. This
whs a bad spot but the difficulty
which faced them has fortunately
been overcome.
Second Contingent
Ottawa, Oct. 6.—Sir Robert Borden
announced tonight tbat tbe government would organize and train a second expeditionary force of 20,ooo men
with a first reinforcement of ten pOf
cent., making 22,000 in all The arrangements for providing the necessary arms and ammunition nnd
equl uuent are alrendy in progress.
The Canadian force at the front will
In thla way he brought up to 50,000
men, which with reinforcements
means that Canada will contribute at
least from 70,000 to 80,000 troops.
Col, Hon. Sam Hughes, minister of
militia, left tonight for Quebec, en
route to New Vork whence he will
sail to England to consult with the
British war office resai ding matters
in connection with the war, and Can-
ad h's participation in it. He will
not stay any length of time in Europe, but will return to tnke charge
of the mobilization o( the second
contingent, The second force of 22,-
000 men will not mobilize at Valcartier, because even the early winter
would be too severe then-, Tlmt
camp Is alrendy almost entirely dismantled. It will he mobilized at base
depots in large centres such ,,n Hall-
fax, Bt, .John, Quebec, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Winnipeg, Ileglnn,
Calgary, Edmonton and Vnncouver,
After bolng recruited mnl equipped
nnd given some preliminary training
tbey will go to England to complete
tbelr training.
He stated today Hint the nrsl con
tingtnt of 33,000 men were the finest
force of shots in the woi It. He had
never known their equal, he sr.ld.
The minister believes that less difficulty will be experienced in organising the second Canadian contingent
than the first. The department will
profit by the experience gained already in regard to the army and
equipping of the forco, while there
will be no lack of volunteers, The
second contingent will Include the
French-Canadian brigade of four regiments, the organization of which bas
already been authorized.
The premier's announcement was as
"According to the reports of the
chief embarkation officers, the total
force embarked at Quebec amounted
to rrarly 33,000 men, besides seven
thousand horses and a proper complement of gunds and vehicles with
full equipment for men and horses.
The transportation of this force required no leBS than thirty-one Urge
"It is probable that upon arrival
In England the force will be organized  as follows:
"Field troops, including a first reinforcement of ten percent, 26,400.
Line of communication troops, 2,100.
Total force at the front, 23.500.
"This will leave about 4,500 men
for training in Great Britain, who
will constitute a reinforcement of
nearly 20 per cent for the men at the
trout. The government proposes
forthwith to organize and train a
second expeditionary force of twenty
thousand men with first reinforcements of ten per cent, making 22,000
in all. This force will be organized
as expeditiously as possible, and the
arrangements for providing the necessary arms, ammunition and equipment are already in progress. The
force at the front will in this way be
brought up to more than fifty thousand men.
"The government are also making
preparations to organize and train
necessary further reinforcements for
both the first and second expeditionary force. The arrangements for organizing and training such reinforcements will be announced at a later

Teaching Bloodshed
Germany's method ol Instilling the
war spirit and race hatred in the
young is described by tbe writer O.
the following article, wbo -Jrom September, 1913, till July last wag an
assistant teacher in a higher technical school in the Rhine Province.
He was appointed to tbis post by
the Prussian Ministry ol Education
on the advice of the English Board
of Education.
It is now common knowledge' that
Germany has for years been preparing for war. We have been preaching
peace while our German kinsmen
have been increasing th»;ir araments,
laying their diplomatic traps, instilling the lust of wnr into the national
mind, the better to dominate the
Ah English master at a Prussian
Oberrealsclmle I daily beheld the havoc wrought upon boyB4by misguided teaching. When I read of the
fiendish deeds committed by thc Germans in Belgium I see in my mind's
eye a class of Innocent lads and seem
to hear the master haranguing tbem.
There he stands, with face flushed,
with,eyes astare, teaching his pupils
the doctrine of rampant Kakscrdom,
a devil's gospel tbat sears the
heart. At the outset let me say
how much I liked the headmaster
and staff of the school to which I
had been appointed. In private dealings they were kindness itself, but
the Chauvinists among them, when
once aroused, became, ra it were,
drunk witb insolence.
I well recall going for a wa'*. with
one of the staff, a handsome DltflfloV
dorfer, on ordinary occasions au excellent fe'low, The conversation
somehow turned upon France and the
French, and forthwith he burst into
mults, threatening France with a
day of awful reckoning, the great day
to which the Germans refer in the
phrase "When it comes ofl" ("Wenn's
Losgehfi. This man's views on
Kngland were those of many other
Germam, England wns to him merely negligible among the nations.
With no Conscript army to meet thfl
German millions, with a Navy soon
to be outclassed and outnumbered by
a rival at Kiel, Englund was presently to see the wisdom of bowing
to thfl Kalfler, thanking blm that
the I'russlitM hordes were not over-
runnlng her,
Our school wnn richly bedecked with
pictures of Bismarck and ol scenes
from the Franco-ftermnn war. On the
top floor, along thfl corridor, were
frescoes Illustrative o' certain lines
in the poet Knrner's "Aufnif." The
lines "Thou shalt drive the Bteel in.
to. the fooman's heart" were illus-
trated*by a bloody picture of French
soldiers iskewored on Prussian swords,
An elder boy imd written „ play

My own lessons were u pure pleasure to mo, as 1 found the boys with
whom I had to work so bright and
socager. As soon ns ever my pupils
could manage to say It they loved to
ask me about the strength of the
British Army and Navy. They tried,
by i tbe way, to tease me about the
exchange of Heligoland. J Lngolsm
made its Way Into|other departments
of tbo school's activity besides mere
lessons. German boyB love to go
a wandering, often for days together, and accordingly a batchjof oldOr
pupils went on B walking tour
through Luxemburg aud along the
Vosges. The master in chaYgfl of
th&m told me liow the lads bad
amused themselves on the frontier by
Btanding in Germany and seeing how
far they could spit Into Prance,
During my stay tlte school issued
its tirst tnagaatne on English lines.
Tbi' tlrst two numbers were free from
Chauvinism, bul to the third an at
tide was contributed In whlob the
following passago occurs "Wo wan
dored through Heidelberg, tho flue
town, rlob in glories; overawed and
shuddering we went through tho
rustle, and thus WO, to whom no
shortly boforo 'the towers! of Strns
lung Minster had bidden good-by \
tbougnt again on the holy war ol
scarcely half a century ago, when
vety$oance was taken tor the Roi Hoi
ell's deeds of robbery and murdei."
My acqualntanOJ with Ger man
school hooks has been a source of
great profit to me. However, the following extracts give an idea of what
is one of their few defects—I mean
the fault <tf being Chauvinistic. Those
who have railed (against the building
of Dreadnoughts may here read a
translation from an article entitled
"To What End do we Need a War
Fleet?" by P. Koch in the German
reader for Untersekunda (i- e., Form
TV.), issued (by Bvers and Walz, of
the Barmen Gymn isium.
"History further teaches ub that
uever have armaments become too
burdensome for a nation; nay, trade
and commerce have bloomed and the
national welfare lias increased with
| tbe ability and readiness for. war. .
I . . Thus a fleet works in the manner of an insurance policy, and the
sacrifices that a nation makes.for its
Navy bring it high interest."
In Harms's "Earth-lore of the
Fatherland'' (" Vaterlandische Erd-
kunde"), •, one of the best German
text-hooks of school geagraphy, • the
following ls to be read in the chapter on Heligoland:
"There is a biting charm about it
to think that Kngland should have
thrust her.own weapon into her rival's hand. There was enough laughing when in 1890 Kaiser William exchanged /Zanzibar in Witu for, Heligoland. The English newspapers swam
in glee. But then came another
As might be expected, there «re examples of Jingoism to be found in
French text-books used in Germany.
For instance, Dublslav Boek's French
Exercises "FrnnzoBischeg Ubunga-
buch") contain the following sentences to be translated from French
Into German -viz., "To-day the
French know that they are weaker
than we. They nre,not likely to attack us without having a powerful
ally. I am not Ignorant of the fact
that Franco is still richer than Germany, but in wealth we are quickly
approaching our neighbors."
Naturally    I     found    Chauvinistic
poems in the anthology used at tbe
school where I was.   This   was   the
popular collection  "Von Aller Zwd-
gen" ("From All Boughs")'md   afforded me a goodly harvest   of   this
kind of verso.   I remember   the   delight with which a class of boys read
the following passage In Ernst Mor-
itz   Arndt's   "Des   Dcutschen Vater-
lnnd."   Thus might I translate three
striking lines:
That is the German's Fatherland;
Where every Frenchman is a foe
And every German ie * friend. I
The Inst poem of the collection is a
"Kaiiersong"   in   praise of .William '
II. by Felix Dahn (18*4-1912)*.   From
this I will translate as follows: ,
Thou ycarnest not for battle-glory,
But rather for the piflm of peace;
'Tis pence thine aim and thy reward.
But rijhts and honour of .h' land
Thou guardest   with thy«weapon'd
arm. j
Thou hurlumt lightning from   thine
And woe betide o'erween ng ones,
Should them thy llery eagle tear.

At the very commencement of the
war umi as soon as Canadian troops
began to mobilize for active aervlcof
the question arose as to how their
wives and families were to he main
tained during their absence. In not
n few Instances generous-minded employers offered to continue to pny
wages as formerly in whole or in
part to the families of men who had
beeu in their service. Many eases
which were unprovided for, however,
came under local notice and funds
were started iu several of our large
cities' to care for Huch. It soon bo
Oame evident that; whllo certain dis
trlctfli could provide well for the families within their boundaries, thero
would he'other cases, oqUlllly deserving, in danger Of boltlg overlooked.
Hence arose the demand for n een
tral or national fund, (lint would
consolidate and support local effort
and he available whoro thls\ p oved
in   nnswor   to   numerous requests.
Ills Royal illghnuBB, tho Governor
OenetlAl of Canada, took Die initial
ive m (Ins matter and the Canadian
Patriotic Fund waa organised with
Ills Majesty the King ns patron. It
la a body corporate by virtue of an
\Cl   ot   Parllamonl  nnd  is empowered:
"To   collect, administer mid   dlstr!
Imte a fund for the assistance in east'
of need ot the wives, children and de
pendent   relatives of  Ofllcers nnd men,
residents of Canada, who, during the
present war, may be on aytiVo service with the naval and military
forces of the lliitisli Empire and
Great Britain's allies." This central body has a distinguished list of
Vice Presidents and nn Executive
Committee made up of leading men
from every province of the Dominion.
The Canadian Patriotic Fund is
given power by its charter "to establish branches or local organizations
throughout Cannda, and to co-operate with any association or organization established jn any place in Canada, for purposes similar to those of
the corporation." The first step in
the direction of united effort was
taken when ths Patriotic Fund Association of 1900, which had administered relief during and since the
Boer War, decided to dissolve nnd to
turn over its unexpended balance,
amounting to about $77,000, to tbe
new Fund. Local organizations, that
had already begun work in Montreal,
Toronto and Ottawa1 asked to be admitted as branches of the Canadian
Patriotic Fund and were duly accepted. A full measuse of autonomy
is granted to these local bodies, yet,
for   the   b&Ho   of   fn-'ormily,     certain
conditions have been laid down aud
cordially accepted.
Each local Branch should have the
usual officers together witb nn Executive Committee and at least two
Sub-Committees, viz:
(a) Finance for the work of raising locally contributions in support
of the Fund, and determining how
they shnll bc. made payable.
(b) Relief for the investigation of
all claims for aid, the determination
of the-amount of assistance which in
each case may reasonably be given,
and for the close oversight of monies
paid out.
Ladies Auxiliaries are invaluable in
visiting the soldiers' wives and families, and supplying the intimate personal touch which oftentimes is us
necessary aB financial aid.
1. T0'have a just claim on the
Fund, it must be shown that nt tbe
time of rcposting for duty, the soldier was a resident of Cannda and
was supporting in Canada tho wife,

wbo are fighting the battles of the
Empire with the army and navy of

N. B.—It, in asked, can this fund he
used to relieve a family . whose
bread-winner has not gone to the
front, but who is out of work and in
need through the indirect effects of
the war? The Centrnl Executive realizes that this is a danger which
threatens at many places throughout
Canada, and must be adequately met
else groat hardship will ensue during the coming fall nnd winter.
But, whatever might bc their inclination, the administrators of the
Fund cannot legally go beyond the
powers grnnted by their act of incorporation, and to relieve incidental
[distress arising from non-employment
is not one of their powers. Several
j cities, however, are taking up what
might be called double-purpose subscriptions. Tbey are lirst setting
aside an amount for the Canadian
Patriotic Fund and then providing a
further sum for the relief of. the locally unemployed. In tho expenditure of 'these latter monies the local
authorities act Independently of the

THIS noMe lover of Liberty was to his beloved Hungary what Patrick Henry was toAmerican Independence/Give melibertyor I

career was devoted solely to secure for Hungary National Independence, for it he suffered imprisonment and exile. Fox it he
worked as few men have ever worked. His fiery coul was expressed in his writing, and his impassioned oratoiy thundered across I
the two continents. All the worid lead and listened to this higfvsouled Hungarian fiitriot. When exiled our government sent the U S, i
Steamer Mississippi to Turkey and brought him to our shores astheguestofuieNation.To-day \ve have millions of Hunguiancitirens,
earn one a lover of fcrsonal Liberty, lb secure it they sought our shores, and to a man they will fight to the death to keep forever alive
the spirit and letter of our immortal Declaration cf Independence.They make gaod citizens, and like Kossuth detest prohibitory enact*
ments which make the many suffer for the faults of the very few Tor centuries Hungarians have as a nation been moderate users of
barieybtews and light winesTheir votes are always registered against any legislation which proposes to regulate human diet by
law. Thou shalt NOTeat this—thou shalt NOTdrink that'—to those of brave Hungarian blood is insufferable tyranny. For 57
years Anheuser-Busch have been proud to serve their Hungarian patrons."They have helped to make the sales of their great brand
Budweiser exceed those of any other beer by millions of bottles, Seven thousand,five hundred people are daily required to keep
pace v*th the public demand for Budweiser. ANHEUSEH-BUSCH • ST.LOUIS, U.S.A.

worse by the advent of the war, merchants and others have

B. C. Timber
In the vaBt forests of British Columbia 360 billion feet of the finest
mature timber is now awaiting manufacture, Cuttings at present amount
to less than 2 billion feet a year,
which is but a portion of the annunl forest growth. Far larger markets for the timber, therefore, must
be found; and thus the Provincial
Government, assisted by the Department of Trade and Commerce at Ottawa, is leading the industries concerned in a commercial campaign
both in 'the existing markets and in
those now being made accessible by
the opening of the Panama Canal.
Some of the largest mills in thi
world are in British Columbia, nnd
the cutting and manufacture of timber iB the most important business
in the Province. The number of saw,
pulp, paper and eh ingle mills Is over
400, nnd their output for 1913 was
valued at $30,000,000. From public
property in timber the annual revenue received hy the Provincial treasury is nearly $3,000,000. The Supreme importance^ of the forests anil
of tbe industries dependent upon
them has mnde the prevention ()f forest fireB an Important matter of public policy.
Protection and administration of
British Columbia's timber resources
is entrusted to the Forest Branch of
the Government Service. The permanent staff Is distribute! through
olevian forest districts, in each of
which a large number of forest guards
nfld patrolmen are employed during
the dry season from Mny to October.
Whenever necessary trails, look-out
stations and Held telephone lines are
built in order to ensure quick mobilization of fire-fighting crews at
points of danger. Launches patrol

The Right Time.
The right time to reach the members of the
family is when they are at home, and the right
way to reach them is through the advertising
columns of the paper that goes into the homes.
There are other methods of advertising that enjoy a certain transitory popularity, because they
are new or novel, but the oldest, wisest and most
successful advertisers tie their faith to the home
newspaper. When people are away from their
homes, there arc a thousand things to divert their
attention, but an advertisement read in the quiet
of the family circle will be read and remembered.
