We are unable to peer into the future but we can look buck over the

Russia can no longer be regarded as
an effective Ally or the Entente; the
high cards are held by Germany, by
whom the Insurrection hna been fostered and fanned by a cleverly planned system of pi'jpugauda disseminated   hy   their   numerous   agents   and
spies.    It has been  n cunningly devised scheme but it  .;; still doubtful

"Does the work cheaper, better"
is what W. H. Heideman writes. "A ton of ordinary dynamite had been used witli very poor results," he said, "and
finally I got Giant Stumping Powder to test out. It
gave entire satisfaction and did the best all-around work."
Hundreds of land clearers in every
part of British Columbia always tell
their dealers or institutes to order
Giant Stumping Powder for them.
They have found that Giant, being
made especially for use in tins section,
always gives better results than powders made to meet general conditions.
