Chin* Sewir* Diplomatic ReU-
»'      •' »  * **r-J-    ». ■
DOM.
Washington, March'lA—China
has severed diplomatic relations
with Germany, taken possession
of all the German merchant ships
at Shanghai, about six in number
placed their crews ashore under
guard and placed armed guards
on the vessels. Advices to the
Navy Department today from the
senior officer in Chinese waters
gave no further details.
American Minister Reinsch, at
Peking, today reported to the
state department that China had
severed diplomatic relations with
Germany and the German minister had been handed his passports.
Severance of relations with Germany by China had been expect-
here for veeks. The action of
the United States in breaking off
relations with Germany was received with acclamation by Chinese officials and the Chinese
press. Feeling against Germany
has run high, not only because
scores of Chinese on the way to
Europe have lost their lives
through the German submarine
operations, but from memory of
Kaiser Wilhelm's order to his
Boxer punitive force to make the
word German dreaded in China
for a century, and the seizure by
Germany of the whole province
of Shantung for the murder of
two missionaries.
The seizure of the German ships
by China may be taken by Germany as an act of war, as in the
case of Portugal.
CZAR OE RUSSIA
Petrograd, March 15.—The
Emperor of Russia has abdicated,
and Grand Duke Michael Alex-
androvitch, his younger brother,
has been named as Regent, The
Russian ministry, charged with
corruption and incompetency, has
been swept out of office. One
minister, Alexander Protopoff,
head of the Interior Department,
is reported lo have been killed,
;and the other ministers, as well
■as the president of the Imperial
Council, are under arrest.
A new national cabinet is announced, with Prince Lvoff as
'.President of the Council and
Premier, and the other offices
held by men who are close to the
Russian people.
London, March 16.—The news
that "Great Russia" had joined
the democracies and that one of
the three great absolutist rulers
of the world had resigned his
throne in accordance with the
demands of his people, was received here with unmixed joy.
There had been no illusion here
about Russia.
"The people and the army are
all for the war and against Germany, " has been the word which
came from Russia from all channels repeatedly. That the court
has been enshrouded in a pro-
German atmosphere and that the
Emperor was a weak man under
the thumb of his wife, and also
the domination of several mem
bers of the bureaucracy, .and
others of whom were influenced
by and in the pay of German
diplomats, also had been reported.

BE CAPTURED
Paris, March 14.—Great importance is attached by the
French military writers to the
continued British successes on
the Ancre front. The expert of
the Matin says that it looks very
much like as if the Germans do
not think they could hold Bau-
paume and Peronne any longer
and are preparing to evacuate
those two cities. Reports from
aviators show that all along their
inner lines the Germans are
blowing bridges and culverts and
burning munitions and provisions
while trying to mask the withdrawal of their heavy guns by
heavy firing with field guns.
The German staff headquarters
on the Somme front is said to
have been moved back ten miles.

THK PREVENTION OF COAL
SHORTAGE
This winter we have had a coal
famine, and that suffering has accompanied the shortage of this
necessity is undeniable. The average citizen has a notoriously
short memory, but now is the
time to impress upon him that,
■ in many cases, the suffering was
due to lack of foresight. In Canada many people buy in small
quantities, often one ton. If, for
any reason there is a shortage of
coal, improvident householders
demand that the coal dealers
do the impossible, namely, that
they supply fuel that is unobtainable. Whereas, had they
purchased their coal in the sum-
mer or autumn, there would be
ample supplies available.
vVliile some large consumers,
such as manufacturers, cannot
store a six months' supply, most
householders can, with their present bins, or with enlarged bins,
store coal to meet their requirements till March or April.
In recent years we have had
two coal famines, first in 1901
-02, the year of the coal miners
strike, and, second, this year,
when the severity of the weather and the extraordinary prosperity in the United States caused an unprecedented congestion
of freight. A survey of conditions in the United States dem
onstrates that in the future
there will be more coal famines
than in the past and that they
will occur ui. shorter intervals.
For I his there is only-one remedy.
Bry j'our coal in the summer. If
you have not sufficient storage,

VACANT GROUND FOR GARDEN'S.
Experimental Farms Note.
From the experience sained in
several Canadian cities and towns
during the past few years in utilizing vacant lots for garden pur
poses, the following methods aie
suggested for those who have
nol yet undertaken this w>ork.
1. An organization should be
Formed, on the txecutive committee nl'which are, at least, two
men or women, who are enthusiastic and will he willing to devote son c time to looking after
the preparation ol the land and
tin- laying out of the plots.
2. Owners of vacant 'a:id
s' i • ild le invited to otter such
piv.> erty for garden making.
3. Assuming that a fairly large
number of lots have been offer
e 1 by their owners, it should be
widely advertised that one of
these is available to any citizen
who will be willing to work it.
experience having shown' that
all classes in the community are
interested in this work.
4. It has been learned by experience that it. is important for
the organization to, at least,
plow and harrow the land for
the plot holders the first year.
Few persons who have not done
any gardening before can be induced to prepare land for seed
Bewing on their own initiative.
5. There are four methods by
which funds may be raised to
prepare the land.
(a) By an appeal to the wealthy
citizens for contributions.
(b) By a grant from the city
or town council, if necessary, on
the understanding that the money will be returned by the plot
holders when they have harvested their first crop.
(c.) The city or town council
might appoint a committee to
carry out such work, the city to
-,id in every possible way. In
order that a movement of this
kind may have at least the greater sympathy of the civic officials,
it would seem desirable for the
organization to have a room in
the city or town hall for its meeting.
(d.) By charging each plot
holder a small amount, for preparing the plot for him.
The last method is the one
which is likely to be the most
satisfectory for most cities and
towns and is the one recommended here,
For information in regard to
rules or bylaws the reader is referred to the accounts of the
work of the several organizations
in Canada referred to in a bulletin being printed by the Dominion government, as in it there
will, no doubt, be found sufficient suggestions to enable bylaws to be drawn up for particular needs. ,
Boy Scouts can be made very
useful in encouraging garden
making and the use of vacant
lots. In Ottawa they were employed in 1915 by the Public
Health Committee of the local
Council of Women in delivering
vegetable seeds which had been
donated for the purpose of encouraging the poorer people to
make gardens. Seed can be obtained in bulk at a cheaper rate
than in packages and can be put
up in packages by the Scouts.
The Scouts also delivered pamphlets on vegetable gardening.
This personal touch did much, it
is believed, to decide those to
make gardens who had been in
doubt before, as many people
.would accept pamphlets if brought to them, who would not take
the trouble to get them themselves.

Speak Easily and Directly Into
the Telephone!
Even telephone men of long experience are surprised
at the greater voice distinctness when speaking directly
into the telephone. When you speak directly into the
telephone, a lower tone of voice can be used, and your
friend can hear easily. .. .   v
Moreover, when you speak lower, the actual tone-
qualities of your voice are transmitted. When you speak
loudly, you unconsciously adopt an unnatural tone of
voice, with the result that much of that intimacy that
should be associated with face-to-face conversation is lost.
A close position to the telephone means easy talking
and easy hearing.

REDMEN VERY LOYAL
Give Money and Work and Lives Freely in Cause
Tho excellent patriotic work of the
File Indiafts at Balcarres, Sask., continues. In October, 1914, thirty-three
of these colonists subscribed J602.10
to the Patriotic Fund, each farmer giving a certain number of bushels of
grain, During the winter that followed, the now famous File Indian Prass
Bund gave concerts thereby raising
another $212 which went to the Bel
glan Relief Fund, and tho Red Cross
Branch of this Colony raised $600 and
endowed a bed in Cliveden Hospital.
The young Indian women have done a
great deal of knitting and sewing. The
branch lias a membership of 86 while
there are only one hundred and sixty
souls —thirty-eight men, twenty-six
women and ninety-six children—in the
Colony.
The patriotism of these Indiana
does not stop here. Two young men
went to the front with the second contingent and six more with the next.
The File Indians lay claim to having
the oldest Red Cross Society member
in the British Empire in the person
of Pointed Cap. This celebrated
character nays that he Is the ripe old
age of 107. He is now an "associate
member" of the Red Cross and proudly wears on his heart the little red
cross, the emblem of the Society.
Older members of the Colony threaten
to enlist. One man who is the father
of nine children has expressed his intention of so doing, and his wife says,
"I will not stop him." Despite the
fact that hailstorms destroyed all tho
crops In the Colony In 1915, the File
Indians were not downhearted, but
made arrangements to continue their
good work during the winter to aid
the boys across the sea.
