In winter he feeds an unlimited supply

so as to avoid waste, bran roots are also fed, not forgotting Ihe salt lick
whicli is always at hand. The breed
Mr. Plghln swears hy is the milking
strain of Shorthorns which he says
cannot be beaten and the steers of
which make splendid beef cattle.
Mr. Plghln lias also heen vory successful with his calves. Asked by the
Herald man about his methods of rearing calves, he says: feed 4 weeks on
whole milk, afler that time skim milk
and calf meal brings good results.
At 10 days feed with Boft hay which at
that age the calf  will  begin  to  eat.
Mr. Plghln never allows his cows to
drink ice cold water fn winter time,
the chill is always taken off. Tt will
bo noticed cows afler drinking Ice cold
water take shivering spells for a while.
This is avoided hy taking tbe chill off
the water. Mr. PIghin always puts bis
milk through a separator before It
cools off. He says it Is also necessary
to keep the separator warm fnr good
results.
We would like to hear the experience of others fnr the benefit of the
many young and inexperienced ranchers that reside in tho Cranbrook
Creamery area.

chorus. Aftor the business of the day
was completed the Directors gave "O j alwayi
Canada" and this wus followed by a
medley of National Airs by Mrs. Ira
Manning, both contributions being
well received.
Mrs. R. \V\ Russell read a paper
compOBOd by herself on "The Great
and good Women of Canada." This was
a very clever article on heroes and,
famous women in all circumstances of'
past and Canadian everyday life.
Among the ninny women portrcyed,
Mrs .Russell mentioned Laura Seeord,
Abigail Becker. Nellie McClung and
tho late Mrs. Hoodlesa, founder of
Women's Institutes.
Mrs. Johnstone complimented the
W. I. or Cranbrook on tlieir splendid
record and expressed her preat
pleasure to note the harmony prevail

Ing. She addressed at some length on
lho subject of "Influence" illustrating
lor ideals by personal anecdotes. She
nf firmed the. influence we bear towards one another, to our children, in
our homes, to the community and as
members of the Women's Institute,
was for good or bad whether voluntary or involuntary. Mrs. Johnstone
apoko of the pleasure It afforded her
to be present that day and sincerely
hoped to meet the same faces at the

At tbe close a donation of $20.00 was
made towards the upkeep of a hospital
bed in Kngland. A rider was added to
make tills an annual subscription.
The membership bas grown so much
that it was felt larger and better quarters be secured to bold tbe meetlngb
noxt year. A ballot was taken tbe
majority rulinr for tbe Parish Hall
where in future tbe meetings will be
held. Several new members joined
making a total of considerably over a
hundred.
To ascertain if tlie socks sent irom

he Medicine Hn'. Daily News of a
i'lit Issue has the following to say
of the show which comes to the Auditorium on Saturday, Dec. Dth next:
"The Girl He Couldn't Buy," was
esented at the Empress theatre Saturday night and proved most entertaining and pleasing to the large audience
present. In theme it Is closely allied
"Within the Law'' and "Kick-In,"
both of which have been shown here,
not so strong In dramatic
ffect as the latter plays, contains
much more of the comedy element and
was perhaps more enjoyable on that
account. The story deals with the adventures of one Hope Nelson, whose
father has been financially ruined
through the machinations of his part-
1 r, David Burnham, Hope's father
les nnd she Is compelled to earn hea
wn living, receiving as ber weekly
Upend and magnificent sum of $6.00.
She shares a miserable apartment with
Kitty Hums, an optimistic girl with
romantic ideas. In the adjoining room
resides "Flip" Edwards who sells Complex razors at ten cents a throw and
whose flow of conversation is never-
•asing, Burnham Is attracted by
Hope's beauty, and offers her a luxurious home, plenty of clothes, jewelry
ml loads of rings, but "not one plain
old one." She is protected by Joe
Maynard. a burglar,and Hope, in turn,
assists him in escaping from the police
by concealng him In "Flip's" room.
Burnham comes to Hope's apartment
nml renews his offer. Maynard overhears tbe conversation and plans to
bring nhnut Huriihnm's downfall by
burglarising his home and securing
stock certificates which will prove
Hope's right to th- money stolen by
Burnham from her father. They are
aided by Kitty and "Flip." who do
the preliminary work. Joe is caught
by Burnham but Hope gels away witli
tiie certificates, llurnham Is Imprisoned, Maynard freed, with the help uf
.Inn Clancy, "lhe best detective on the
force." and everything ends happily.

SHOUT
(Vancouver World)
As fast u ■ ships can bo secured Can.
adlan troopa will I"1 sent to Great Britain tn complete their training. Not a
great number oi soldlors, comparatively speaking, will bu left In the Dominion during the winter, tin.* reason being that the climate Is not ns suitable
for training purposes as that of Great
Britain.
The men are needed for apring operations on tlie western front. Evidently
the Allies have great plans to bring to
fruition then. And every available
man will be needed.
It ts just at tliis critical point that
tlie breakdown of Canada's recruiting
system will begin to show Itself. Once
the contingent now about to cross the
Atlantic is sent in the firing line there
will be no reinforcements for it unless
we do somothlng here at home to remedy the existing situation.
Canada today is recruiting but a few-
paltry thousand men a month as compared with a thousand a day at the be-
glning of this year. Unless enlistment
Is stimulated tho depleted batalllons
in Franco must bo rilled next year
wiiii English and Scottish-born soldiers.
Is this the way the pledge of half
a million nun Indeed more, "the last
man ami the last dollar/'—is to be
kept?
Lord Shaughnessy in London yer.
tcrday told nn interviewer that Canada's "chief concern nt the present moment it. to win the war." This is truu
ami obvious. Hut wars aro not won
with phrases or promises; they are
won with men and hy the sacrifices
lhat men make.
Unless men are forthcoming and
unless these sacrifices are made this
Dominion may as well announce her
inability to do auy more in the great
world-struggle against the Ideas, the
aspirations, and the devillshness of
Germanic mllltarylsm known under
; the name of "Kultur."
WHAT OF TIIE U.S. 1
What are tho United States thinking
of? Does Prosident Wilson intend to
con tin ne neutral and remain sli Ul
while aOo.000 Belgian Mtlzens aro car
ried Into slavery in Germany? Due.-.
tho great republic propose that only
when a United States citizen Is Injured
Will it be moved to protest, and that i
tho greatest crimes ever imposed upon j
humanity may continuo without Its
slightest criticism so long as Its own
Immediate interests arc not affected?
For some months past German sol- j
diers in Belgium have been "rounding
up" the population liko cattle on tho
prairie, driving them  Into  pens and'
corrals, loading them Into box cars,'
and shipping them Hod knows where
Into tho Interior of Germany to serve
as the slaves of their Gorman masters.
Families are being separated witiiout
mercy, wives torn from their husbands \
nnd mothers from their children.    A
free people is being driven by the lash
into  servitude  compared   with   which I
the negro slavery of the United States I
was a kindly and domestic condition. |
No such gigantic crime has ever
been commitod since Christ came to
earth. The horror of it make:' one
shudder. Against it the civilized
world hi In revolt. Against it tho free
peoples of Kurope are expending their
life blood and tholr treasure. Great
Britain, the leader of nations, has
thrown into the contest the lives of her
young men, the affections of hor young
* omen, tlio tenderness of parents, tho;
devotion of children. Gladly has the j
British Empire staked its honor, Its I
prosperity and Its future upon this
great cause.
France, with soul afire and upraised
head, has rushed to hor own boundar-
les in defense of hor women and child- j
ron, but still more In defense of the]
principals of liberty, equality and fraternity upon whicli her foundations
rest. Russia, with regenerated spirit
and thc might of her countless millions, handicapped though they ho by
distance by Insufficient transport and
by lack of munitions, has offered up
her best upon tlie altar of sacrifice.
And what of the United States, that
great and noble nation, which was born
in a struggle against oppression und
which has claimed to represent before
humanity the principals of (reei'om,
falrnosB and mercy? Will It continue
with suplno arm and bulging pockets
to stand aside while others fight the
good fight? Wlll It. can it, look on
Belgium's thousands being driven to
slavery by the lash and raise no voice
on tlieir behalf?    Wo in Canada havo
thought, and still thtnK, kindly of our
cousins  to  the  Bouth.    Hut  we  may
solemnly say that  If today they are
content to continue Indifferent to tin .
cry of Belgium, to tho crucifixion of'
Servln, to the agony of Poland, to the j
ruination of northeastern France, then
we must, with a sigh, regard thcra as
unworthy of their high plaee among
tho  nations  of  the  world.- A ,'algary

The bar of the Ogden Hotel at Calgary, has heen turned into a "handl-
rai't room".
Wliere   liquor gnrglod  and  glasses
linked, the hammer and chisel and
piano are heard instead. The counter
lias been filled with a sloping top for
drawng hoards and mathematical In-
tniNK'lltS.
The frequenters of this transmogrl-
led bar have not to be turned out at
cloning tlmo by law, on the contrary,
win it closing time comes they hnve all
o hr In.
The Hotel, iii fact, is now a health-
hop for wounded and otherwise dls-
hied members of our expeditionary
.nee. The men do not have to buy
coltli there, it is given them by ub,
li" Canadian people, through our Miliary Hospitals Commission,
Not as a matter or charity, by any
moans, it is the repayment of the
debt owing to these men who lent ub
lieir bodies to defend our liberty and
estoro peace.
If we were luke-warm and careless
bout paying this debt of honor, we
liould not deserve the liberty and
eaee for which these men volunteer-
d at. the risk of tholr lives.
Wi' cannot pay the debt with medi-
ine nnd surgery alone. To restore
them thoroughly, fitting them to tako
t tolr place in the working world as
oon as tliey leave, they need exercise
of body and mind—exercise of course
nrefully arranged in proportion to
heir strength.
And so it comes about that woodworking and mechanical drawing,
gardening and poultry-keeping, type-
wrlting, and tho good old "three R's,"
re all enlisted to help In equipping
the disabled soldier with health,
norgy and ability for a life of Inde-
ondonco.
For ono hundredweight of coal mix
16 ounces of common salt with 8 oim-
cea of common soda, and about two-
thirds of a pint Of boiling water to
dissolve the salt and soda. Keep this
lu a bottle with the cork cut to allow
the sollution to be well sprinkled. Be
sure the coal ia well moistened with
the sollution. The result Invariably is
very little sraoku.a bright Incandescent kind of flame, and long duration
of the fuel.
It sometimes occurs that some classes of coal require a stronger mixture.
Then Increase the quantities of salt
and soda, but the same proportion of
water.
What first led me to these experiments was that some years ago a salvage steamer recovered some tons of
coal which had been submerged in n
vessel for over 20 years. 1 had a .few
hundredweights of this coal, and was
astonished at its duration when burning. Further, the smaller the coal the
better the results--so much so that 1
Btrongly advise your readers to break
up tho coal before saturating ft with
thu solution.
I daresay many of your readers will
remember tliat 1 made a strong point
of the fact that the coal 1 supplied
lasted twice as long as any other,. 1
am no longer interosed in the coal
trade, therefore feel pleased to give
my experience for the benefit of others
I think that in the Torquay district
there are a few who uso my recipe
with good results.
For factories aud large consumers
of small coal 1 would advise the using
of the recipe In a powdered form In
tho same proportion, the coal to bo
sprinkled just before using—not saturated with water but just sprinkled.
I have found factory coal thus saturated make loss smoke, less ash, and
very llttlo soot, with a saving of from
33 to 50 per cent in consumption.
I am sure tliat if your raders will
follow my suggestions they win save
considerably in their coal bill, and will
also  get more  heat from their coal.

The renewed controversy over President Wilson's Lusltanla note la due
Bolely to the fact that it was written

A reader in Cornwall writes: I cn-

and found il a saving, so I am forwarding it to you.
During thoso hard times poor people
find their coal bills very heavy. Unfortunately people generally do not get
the most out nf their fuel, because thev
have not the time or Inclination to try
a few experiments. Quite recently I
read results of experiments with salt
solutions and with soda solutions.
( have for over 30 years been connected with the coal trade. During

whieh to prolong the life of coal when
burning, In the end I succeeded ln
making one feeding of conl on a flre
