SOCIAL EVENTS
AT BEVAN
Literary and Athletic Association
to be Formed—New Families
arrive from England.
(Communicated)
The chicken supper and smoker
held in the Bevan Hotel on Saturday night in connection with
the quoit tournament was a great
success. Our genial host and
hostess know how to do things at
a repast of that kind and to do it
well.
After supper a lengthy programme was gone through with
T. A. Spruston in the chair, who
spoke of the great things that
were in store for the town of
Bevan. He spoke of the good
feeling and harmony that existed
in the town and hoped they would
form a literary and athletic
association to go hand in hand
with the quoit tournaments.
Others spoke of having a football team get together with the
intention of rousing the old-time
sport again that used to exist in
the neighbouring town of Cumberland,
The following programme was
rendered—

Quite a number of families
arrived in town from England
last Saturday night. There was
great rejoicing amongst the boys.
Let them all come. What we
want are good citizens.
We are pleased to see that
some, who fell by the wayside
thirteen months ago, are beginning to get wise aud return bacl<
to the fold—(Bevan).
The citizens of Bevan exter,d
their sympathy to Mr. J. Tyson
and family in their sad beireav-
ment.

CITY COUMcIL
The city council held their
regular meeting on Monday evening. Full board present, the
Mayor presiding.
The city clerk read a communication from the Royal Bank concerning the city overdraft and
the issuing of debentures.
The council decided to consult
financial brokers.
constable Gray reported for the
month of September as follows—
Scavenger  $104.00
Hall Rent    40.00
RoadTax    14.00
Pilsener Brewing co     5.00
$163.00
Aid. Maxwell was granted permission to introduce an amendment to the Land Tax bylaw at
next meeting of the council,
It was also moved and carried
that the Tax Sale Bylaw, which
was given a first and second
reading at a previous council
meeting, be dropped! owing to the
expense of carrying out the sale.
NOT YET.
Frank Farrington's fools are
again fooled. South Wellington
has not signed up yet. It is now
five weeks since Farrington and
Foster told their dupes that South
Wellington would sign up and
recognise the U. M. W. of A. in
two weeks, then the Western
Fuel company would follow suit,
and it was only a matter of time
when they would come to Cumberland and bring the officials of
the Canadian collieries to their
knees.
In the five weeks that have
elapsed since Farrington and
Foster have visited this city
according to the latest reports
we find South Wellington producing an output that amounts
to almost 400 tons per day without the assistance of the U.M.W.
of A. Extension Mines are working again as usual, the Western
Fuel company operating No, 1
Mine and shipping coal, with an
ever increasing output at the
comox Mines, which is expected
to reach the 60,000 ton mark in
October.
FIRE IS RAGING IN WELSH
MINE.
CARDIFF, Wales, Oct. 15-
All hope if rescuing more of the
miners entombed in the Universal Colliery, where the explosion occured yesterday, has been
virtually abondoned,
The report that a party of 29
men had been found in one of the
galleries has proved erroneous,
but a large number of bodies
were found today.
No official report* have been
issued, and this has caused much
comment Fire broke out afresh
this afternoon and still is burning.
There are no signs of life in the
pit
Up to a late hour tonight, 49
bodies had been recouvered,
while 368 miners are still missing.
The shift which went into the
mine yesterday numbered 931.
The engineers have decided to
devote their efforts to extinguishing the fire as they believe it useless to persist in the attempt of
rescue.
BRITISH COLUMBIA WINS
GOLD MEDAL.
WINNIPEG, Oct. 15.- The
final judgings at the Canadian
Land and Apple Show were announced today as follows:
British Columbia wins the gold
medal for the Provincial exhibit
of natural resources and apples.
Province of Ontario is awarded
diploma for finest exhibit of fruit.
c. P. R. gets gold medal for
general display of grains and
Prince Albert Board of Trade
captures district - diploma for
best   display of grains nd gra-
OUTPUT FOR THE WEEK.
The output for the week ending
Friday October 17th, totals 11,
905 tons. This decrease is due to
slight accidents at the local
mines, which have been varied
and many during the past week.

vent cows and horses from roam
ing our streets.
A year ago the city Council
appointed a committee to interview the Electric Light Co. with
■a. view to securing better lights
for Dunmuir Avenue. It has
been suggested that the committee hand in their report at the
next council meeting and secure
the improved lights, which are
not only needed on Dunsmuir
Avonue but all other parts of the
city.

Sir D. Mann Tells of Progress of
Construction Work on Canadian Northern Railway.
EDMONTON, Alta. Oct. IP. -
"By June next, the Canadian
Northern will run through trains
between Toronto and Edmonton
and by August through trains
will commence running from Mon
treal to the Pacific Coast via Edmonton; over the C. N. R.
This announcement was made
here this evening by Sir Donald
Mann, Vice-President of the C.
N. R., on his trip through the
West, Sir Donald said that tho
line connecting Sudberry and
Port Arthur would be finished by
December, and the two ends
of the steel on the main line bet-
when Edmonton and the Pacific
Coast will be connected about the
middle of next Summer,
About 1,000 miles of new track
are being laid by the Canadian
Northern this year, and by the
time the line from Montreal to
the Pacific Coast is opened, the
Canadian Northern will be operating 10, 500 miles of railway in
the Dominion.
"The crop through the West
has been one of the best on record, and the C. N. R. is shipping
over 400,000 bushels per day into
Winnipeg, the number of cars
average 390 per day." Sir Donald said, " Not so bad for a single track either."
The Vice-President had intended going on to the Coast, but he
stated that he had received word
that he was required to go back
East at once, and he intends to
make the Coast in about four
weeks' time.
Tonight Sir Donal attended the
Legislature, and after the ajour-
nment, spent some time chatting
with the Ministers in the corridors.
WESTERN FUEL SHIP COAL
m -•et them.
The Daily Hcarld of Thursday
says;— For the first time since
the strike was called here in May
last coal was shipped yesterday
by the Western Fuel Company.
At the time the strike was called
the company had a contract to
supply a local steamship company with bunker coal for its
steamers, The latter company has
got along as well as it could under
the strike conditions, hut recently came to the decision that unless it could be supplied with coal
it would convert its boats into oil
burners,
During the life of the agreement the Western Fuel Company
had signed with its employes the
company made no attempt to fill
its contracts from the local mines.
Now that the agreement has expired the management has dectd-
to fill what orders it can, and the
Manhattan, one of the steamers
of the steamship company referred to was bunkered yesterday
with No. 1 coal.
While the company has as yet
made no public announcemt of
its policy it is uijderstoo that the
No, 1 mine is open for any miners who want to work, It is red-
orted around town that there aro
a great many men who would
like to get back to work. The
Herald is informed, although not
officially, that there is work at
the mine for those who care tp
ask for i'„ so that it is now up to
the men, who wish to return to
their employment to oo so a*.

Any Fool Cannot Farm Today
It 19 aa old saying that any fool
can (arm and ihls was almost the
truth \Vhen farming consisted chiefly
ln reducing tho fertility of the now,
rich land secured at practically ko
cost from a gene.-ous government. But
to restore depleted soils to nigra productive power in economic systems is
no fool's joo, for it requires mental aa
well as muscular energy; and no apologies should be expected from those
who necessarily make uso of technical terms in the discussion of thla
teohntcal subject, notwithstanding the
common foolish advice that farmers
should bo given a sort of parrot Instruction iu almost baby language instead of established facts and principles in definite and permanent scientific terms. The farmer should be
as familiar wllh tho names ot the tea
essential elements ot plant food as ho
is with the names ot his ten nearest
neighbors. Salo and permanent systems ot so'.! Improvement and preservation may come with intelligence—
never ignorance—on the part ot the
land owners.
There's llnr gist ot Ihe whole question as to Iho future ot every farm,
wrapped up In that last sentence.
Head It again, please. Now, how Is
a farmer to become familiar with the
terms applied to the ten elements of
plan! food if he does not read about
Ihem and force his miud Into a study
of them?
Right hero Is Ibe big gap between
lhe teacher or farm fertility and the
farmer who Is wasting it. The truth
of the matter must come to the mind
of the farmer in certain terms. There
are no other words that will convey
that truth. It ho becomes Intelligent, capable ot mastering lhe problem, he must learn the language of
truth. Without Intelligence the
farmer is a destroyer of tbe soil and
a hindrance to bis own good fortune.
II will pay to r?ad about these things.
Wolves Killing Off the Buffalo
Investigations carried on by the
Forestry Branch of the Dominion Government have proven conclusively that
several largo herds of wild buffalo aro
still to bo found lu tbe hilly country
on Ibe northern boundary of Alberta,
In the neighborhood of the Slave River. A party working under tho direction of Mr. A. J. Hell, the Government Agent at Fort Smith, made a
study of the habits and obtained photographs of Ibese buffalo of the plains,
the remnants of which were forced to
seel; shelter in the timbered fastnesses of the north.
These wood-buffalo, when fully
grown are abb to defend themselves
against their natural enemies, but in
lhe winter bofore the young yearlings
have attained tull strength, they frequently fall victims to the timber-
wolves'. Bands of these wolves hover
around the flanks of the buffalo herds
aa they pass In single file from one
feeding ground lo another, waiting for
tho opportunity to cut off a young
animal an drive it from Ihe beaten
trail Into the deep snow, where it is
unable either to escape or lo defend
Itself.
Parlly-eaten carcasses were found
by the Investigating party, which
clearlv Indicated that the wolves wero
the cause. These grey timber-wolves
are ot large size, aud are very numerous In tbis region, where they menace the existence, uot only ot the
wood-buffalo, but of other game as
well. The Dominion Government al-
rcr-tv offers a bounty of twenty dollars a piece for their destruction, but
so sparsely Inhabited is 'ne region and
so clever are the wolves in avoiding
traps, that the present bounty has had
little effect in reducing their numbers.
It is possible that the Dominion
Government will raise the bounty here
lo forty dollars In the hope of ridding
the regions ot these pests, and ot preventing the extinction ot the last wild
bison lu existence.

REMINGTON CO. IN WINDSOR
Big Arms and Ammunition Concern
Builds Branch Factory In Canada
Canadian endorsement of quality ln
loaded shot shells has brought the
ltemlngton Arms Union Metallic Cartridge Company across the border with
the first ammunition factory to be
built In this country by United States
manufacturers to supply this market.
This big arms and ammunition concern, now near._g Its ono hundredth
year of business activity, has Its principal factories at Brllgeport, Conn.,
U.S.A., whtro ammunition la made,
and at llion, N.Y., U.S.A., the home
of modern arms mnklng. Up to this
year tbe steadily increasing Remington business in Canada has been handled from the home factories," but of
l»te our dealers and sportsmen have
made the demand so strong that early
in 1!H3 tho company's Executive Board
decided lo build a branch factory on
this sido of the line. Windsor, Ontario, offered, advantage.) as a central
distributing pot- and as a»skllled labor market and early ln 1913 a factory site consisting ot over one hundred acres was purchased there.  n
Tho problem then was to rush thei tjw!"A.1i'
plant to early completion and install!    (Seal.)
an equipment capable ot producing am-
munition of the same high quality demanded ln the strict 'home factory'
inspection.   Th- order was given to
I sparo no expense in provrding for the
oxp.-ditlous  filling ot  the unusually
'h.avy orders of the year. A large
forco of workmen was recruited and
five months from the day tho first
ground Wu3 broken Windsor boasted
a strictly modern ammunition factory
equipped w'th the latest improved machinery, a ballistic range and chrono*
graph for testing penetration, velocity,
pattern, etc*, together with powder
magazines . nu storage warehouses
Builders who watched the seemingly
magical creation of the splendid plant
In all Its completeness claim that .t
remarkable record was made ln tho
erection and installation work.
Two railroads have built switches to
the factory door and t'-iere is a direct
connection with the lake routes so
lhat every facility li afforded for
prompt shipments. Deliveries of the
famous Arrow. Nitro Club and New
Club speed shells are already being
made from Ihe nrw factory.
Ths Real Reason
Certain publio employes wlr> havo
to submit daily to a r..pld Sr* of well-
meant but needless questions may be
excused It they occasionally turn upon
their persecutors. This is how an
elevator boy dealt with on* ot them:
Don't you ever feel sick going up
and down ln this elevator all dayt a,
fussy lady asked him.
Yes, ma'am, courteously replied the
elevator boy.
Is lt the motion going down? pursued the lady.
No, ma'am.
The going up?
No, ma'am.
Is it the stopping that does 11
No, ma'am.
Then what Is it?

A promlnenl physician in an Arkansas town has an extensive practice
among tlie laboring classes, where
economy is th best policy. One day
the Utile daughter of one of the meu

hurriedly called. He arriv '. and administered a soothing treatment to the
patient who waj soou sleeping soundly and upon leaving, prescribed some
medicine which was to be obtnlned at
the drug store. The next day tho
visit had to be repealed, and some
more medicine bought. This was
kept up until lire lllllc girl was entirely well, when lhe father went to see
the dorlor to Bellle his bill.
As his purse was rather slim, he approached the doctor wllh many mis-
Givlugs.
Here is your bill, sir, began the
doelor, handing him the paper. This
for the drugs front lire siore and this
fur my visits.
Tlio Poor man looked nnd was horrified al the amount requested, realizing that li" could no! pay It all.
Tben after Ihlnklng a moment ho look
out bis purse and la'd some pieces or

Advice to Farmers
Prbsant prospects ln-lloate a fair cio-
ot grain throughout tha threo western
provinces, but do not i>olnt to any larjrer
ylela than last year. Thla, combined
with tha big shortage in the spring
wheat crou of the United states, and
alio that ot France und other European
countries, and tha present high price
of corn, all points tuward a high level
of prices, and wa cannot see any reason why prices shonld be hammered
down to the low level of last year. W*
claim the right valuu of 1 Northern
ahould not be less than 95c; *\ C. W.
oats, 10o: 1 N-/W.C. Flaxseed, 11.50, and
3 0. W. Barley, 50c; basis In store Fort
William or Port Arthur, but of course
If farmers rush their £raln on tha market early with Instructions to sell for
what it wlll bring, prices ars bound to
bs forced lower. Any farmer who is in
a position to hold his grain at horns
should do so. and thoso who aro obliged
to sell to get cash should ship and sell
only enough to carry them over. If
tha sellinsr of all our grain could bs
spread ovenly over the whole season,
prices could easily average from lOo to
lfio per bushel higher, which would
mean an enormous extra amount of
cash brought Into Western Canada.
Last year the larger bulk of our grain
was sold at ridiculously low prices—
selling down as low as 78)q for 1 Northern; loaio for 1 N.W.C. Flaxseed; SOc
for 2 C,W. Oats, and 44o for 8 C.W.
Barley. Since spring opened we have
sold 1 Northern at 100c; 1 N.W.C. Flax*
ssed 130o; 2 C.W. Oats at 36c, and 8 C,
W. Barley at 51c, basis In store Fort
William or Port Arthur. This saslly
shows ths huge loss to farmers through
marketing thslr grain ln enormous
quantities right at the beginning of the
season. There is far more reason this
year for prices of our wheat ranging
above ths dollar mark than last year.
Once prices are forced down tt ls hard
to get them to advance again until
stocks In sight are greatly reduced;
therefore, be careful not to rush vour
grain forward too fast.   Every carlot
■■ .Id back helps Just that much ts hold
it rices up and put them higher.
V.9 would advise farmers that whenever possible load your grain dlreot
from the waggon into the car, and whea
you send your shipping bill to a commission agent, figure out the situation
well befor* selling. To send instructions to sell for whatever It will brlnff,
serves to break prices down ' more
quickly than any other way we know
of. instruot your commission agent
that you want your grain sold at n
certain price and then hold for that
price. If you do have to pny two e*
three cents per bushel storage what et
It, because you will eventually get th*
price you want, and besides you nre
helping te hold prices up.
The distribution of oars should alt*
bs watched closely. Farmer! should
gst together and arrange to have a representative keep careful watch on the
railway order book and see that eacfc
man Is allotted cars acoordlng to the
Grain Act. That ta what the Grain Aet
a for and If you de not use It the fault
Ues With yourselves.
We nre grain commission mercliantg
and give our undivided attention to thin
business. Our experience extends
around 21 years, and farmers consigning grain for ul to handle receive the
benefit of this experience ln the advloe
and Information we give them. We

Facts and Figure*
Because a farmer keeps a herd of
dairy cows it does not necessarily follow that each one ln the herd ls especially adapted for t'.ilrylng. The
typo and general appearance may be
good, the temperament anl disposition
may promise fair results, but the real
value of each one is to be measured
actually and practically by Just her
Individual yield not the average of tho
herd as a whole, at the eud of a full
season's work.
Over and over again when dairy
farmers have checked up the production separately ot each cow there have
heen found wonderful surprises and
serious disappointments. Those
good lookers have turned out to be
poor producers; the despised cow of
Insignificant appearance has often
proved a splendid moneymaker when
ber moderate cost ot feed has been deducted from the large total yield of
milk and fat. Some cow testing figures recorded by the dairy division at
Ottawa, show great contrasts. For instance, two cows yielding the same
weight of milk may differ in profit by
$26.00. The aged cow may do far
better than the five-.jar-old. Two
mature cows ln the same herd have
been known to differ In production by
eight thousand pounds ot milk. One
herd of twelve cows last year gave
thirty-six tons of milk more than another herd of twelve. How are these
vital points to be definitely ascertained
by the practical dairyman? Such
facts are brought to light when figures
are use.1. It Is Just as simple as A.
B.C. Keep records of Individual production; lt take? scarcely ten minutes
per cow per month, and i.hundantly
pays every dairyman.

into which he was carried previously.
The latter attack was made after t

Andrew's Lodge, and.it took a largt
detachment of police to drive back tht
crowd, which did not seem tatisfler)
when he was hit over the head once,
although he was knocked senseless.
And this sort of thing has been going
•n for years.
Mr. Roberts i* a Welshman, ant a
mighty scrappy little one. He was a
temperance worker in the Old Coun-
try, and some years ago he came tt
America to go en a lecture tour. Hit

After the Mohawks had settled ln

Brant was encouraged In his efforts
In this direction by the hearty support
of the Imperial Government. Tha
distribution c! presents to Indians,
which was then in vogue, found no
distinction between the visiting bands
and those of the resident Indians ol
Canada. In a few years, the Cayugas (with the exception of a few that
are still in New York State) came in
a body and Bettled, too, on the Grand
River. So also did many of the Senecas and Onondagas. Most of the Onei*
das, when they emigrated to Canada,
settled on the Thames River in Middlesex.
Brant was able to rekindle the great
Council Fire of the Iroquo'.s at a huge
festival and council of reunion of the
Five Nations at the Indian village of

Clergy Scheme a Success,

ef distributing Anglican clergy
throughout the sparsely settled dis-}
tricts of western Canada, an idea that
was put into operation about two years

ranks are to be made as soon as ths
necessary arrangements can be concluded.
Canon Gardiner of Folkestone, Eng.,
Win was in Canada recently, was sent
to the Dominion by the Archbishop ol
Canterbury in order to make a report
on the matter, and he says that this
report will be very favorable.
-About thirty of the English clergy

Borne of them are traveling in pairs.
When a district hns become sufficiently well populated a church is erected
and a regular parish established.

would begin construction shortly of
the longest tunnel in America. Tin
tunnel will be built through Kicking
Horse Pass, in the Rock* Mountains,
will be 18 miles long and will cost
$14,000,000. It will take seven years,
it is estimated, to build. The bore
through the mountains will be four
miles longer than the Simplon tunnel
through the-Alps. The construction ot
this tunnel will eliminate many miles
of dangerous snowsheds.
Medicine Hat's Natural Gas.

Who has been investigating' the subject of Medicine Hat natural gas,
states that the area of the gat belt

thousand million cubic feet and estimating the city's growth at the most
optimistic figures and consequent increase in consumption, the gas supply
will last over ninety years. This is

And Mr. RobertB wss rather rough
ly handled before peace was restored.
Not long after Mr. Roberts with
three detectives went to raid a tough
dance hall. They had seized a quan.
tity of whisky when somebody threw
a bottle. Right away the air was a
cubist picture of furniture, sticks, bottles, and pretty nearly everything
loose around that joint. Roberts wai
badly beaten up, but escaped before
an ambulance was necessary.
Next day he was asked whether he
was having anybody arrested. "No,"
laid he, "I haven't laid a complaint
yet.   We're going to raid some mora
f daces like that, and I'll get them all
n court together."
OI late Mr. Roberts has been' seeking to prove that the Montreal chief
of police is in collusion with the dive,
keepers. He doesn't seek to prove thii
in any mild or abstract way. He
makes such a mighty noise about
broken laws — laws smashed openly
and flagrantly—that the dive-keepers
and the Montreal underworld gener*
ally have been getting angrier and
uglier all the time.
It will be interesting to see just how
this fight will end, for something mora
terious for either Mr. Roberts or hit
enemies than has yet transpired seems
to be on the way. One thing will
not happen, however, Roberts won't
quit; you can bank on that.
Hiawatha Dead.
Hiawatha, the last hereditary ehiel
af the Iroquois Indians, is dead. He
had presided for many years over the
remnant of the tribe which settled
ln Ontario. Though the Iroquois are
greatly scattered and number fewei
than 12,000 in all, those on the Canadian reservation are regarded as thj
head tribe, and the chief, Hiawatha,
was looked up to as the chieftain ol
all the Iroquois.
His successor will have to be elect*
ed by the tribe because his only son,
Prince Lazarus, is not a candidate for
the leadership, since he, like many
other Iroquois Indians, has adapted
himself to modern civilization, and a|
present he is studying for the Methodist ministry. It was the custom cl
the Iroquois to name the chiefs eldest
son Hiawatha, which means a person
of miraculous birth; but the 1st*
chief's son was baptized Lazarus.
While most of the Iroquois are now
farmers, many of them have attained
to considerable distinction in other
pursuits, and their reservations in
Ontsrio are well ordered and show an
advanced state of cultivation.
Capital tome fifty-three years alter
the father had occupied that position.
At the inaugural ceremonies, Sir Richard made a reference which set all
Canada talking at the time, for lt was
an interesting prediction and threw •
new tld* light on affairs. He was
dwelling on the occasion when Ottawa
was selected by her late Majesty
Queen Victoria as the seat of the Fed*
•ral Government for Canada. Then bt
referred to the wonderful growth and
Increasing importance of the West,
and said that the time might coma
when, with the great preponderance of
population beyond the -Great Lakes,
the Parliament of Canada might bs
called npon to consider the matter of
thifting the legislative buildings from
Ottawa to Winnipeg, Brandon, ot
some other point. The West might
even demand It with its larger influence, wealth and numbers.
Sir Richard did not speak of the
matter as likely to be an accomplish-
ment, but rather ln a speculative way
of what might occur within the next
fifty years, for he had been reviewing
events of the past half century, having
a marvellously clear memory. Tha
western papers, however, caught at
the suggestion, and for some weeks
articles and letter appeared in the
press on the subject that created no
little stir. The West heartily approv.
ed of Sir Richard's suggestion, but
Ottawa was stirred up.—Saturday

The Ottawa Playground! Association, launched in February, has been

In Toronto, the famous "Boys' Dom.

integral part of municipal and educational interest. Numerous play,
grounds, ably operated, supply a long,
felt need in the various districts and

In Hamilton, according to the year's
report of the local Playgrounds Association, they had, during the two
and a half months the playgrounds
were open, an attendance of forty
thousand children ranging all the way
from one to fourteen years of age. Ths

"The Dominion."
The celebration of "Dominion Day''
-the forty-sixth anniversary of lr.u
day when all tho scattered provinces
of Canada were gathered into one
nation by the Fathers of Confederation
—calls to mind the quaint story, well
known to all Canadians, of the reason
why Canada came to be called "tlie
Dominion."
"His dominion iholl be from sea to
tea, and from the river to the ends ol
the earth," was the text from which
the Fathers of Confederation picked
the word with which to distinguish
the great nation which was to spring
from the struggling settlements spread
over a vast continent.
At that time, when Canada was still
a vast wilderness, sparsely inhabited
it needed a flash of true prophecy in
the mind of those who chose to speak
of a nation stretching "from sea to
sea." The miracle of colonization,
however, has been accomplished, and
Canada is now reaching her prime.

Strange Coincidence.
There is a strange similarity in the
deaths of two British srmy heroes-
possessors of the coveted Victoria
Cross for bravery.
Major Cockburn, who was buried in
Toronto recently, was kicked by »
horse on his ranch in Alberta. Hi
won his V.C. in South Africa.
In the London, Eng., papers just to
hand is chronicled the death of Majol
M. T. Meiklejohn, V.O., who fell from
his horse in Hyde Park and was fatal-
ly hurt. He, too, won his V.C. In
South Africa. At Elandslaagte, after
the main Boer position had been
captured,  some of the Gordons, ex.
frosed to a heavy cross-fire, and bavin*
ost their leaders, began to waver. "By
his conspicuous bravery and fearless
example," said the official account,
"Captain Meiklejohn rallied the men
and led them against the enemy's position, whero he fell, desperately wound,
ed in four places."
His right arm was nearly shot oil
and waa immediately amputated. "Tht
silly beggars didn't know I was left»

Caterpillars Stop Train.
The Province of Quebec it suffering
from a plague of caterpillars. Entire
orchards have been ruined, and maple
groves look as though they had been
swept by fire.
Trees in the public psrks are covered with a cotton-like substance black
with caterpillars. The city corporation has had gangs of men at work
fighting the plague, and the assistance
even of boy scouts bas been requisi-
tioned.
It is reported from one point that
the caterpillars were so thick on tha
railway track that a luggage train wai
stopped by the slipping of the wheels.
It was only after the use of a quantity
of sand that the train could proceed.
Various means have been adopted
by farmers to aave their treet. A common method it to wrap th* trunk
with tanglefoot, tnd in thlt the caterpillars are caught as ther climb up.

1250 Watch For a Dollar.
A farm hand named C. W. Lawson,
was sent to Simcoe by the officials of
the Ontario Government Bureau in
Toronto.
It so happened that the conduetol
of the train found Lawson was a dol*
lar short on his legal fare, and as ho
had not the money, the conductor
threatened to put him off at Hamilton.
Lawson, In desperation, offered the
man his gold watch, worth every cent
of J250, as security, but the conductor
refused it.
However, a man having the appearance oi a mechanic, stepped in, and
took the watch in exchange for thn
dollar fare. Lawson gave the man hie
own name, and an address to which
to return the watch and get the dollar,
but he never asked the mechanic what
his name was, or where he lived.
Lawson has seen neither man noi
watch since, and now he wants to
know how to get it back.
Perhaps the mechanic, has forgotten

" In former years, when the government inspectors
were looking for tuberculosis in the cattle hereabouts,
it has been customary to pass over herds owned by the
Japanese, who were not delivering milk to the creamery
This year a change has been made and all herds are being
inspected. So far this year nearly a dozen cows found
suffering with the disease have been distroyed. The gov
ernment should go a little further and compel all dairies
to be put in a sanitary condition. Cumberland citizens
are largely supplied with milk produced in dairies which
are barred at the creamery. It might be a good move on
their part to have the sources of supply looked after."
This extract from last week's issue of the " Courtenay
Review" does not make pleasant reading, lt is not the first
occasion on which the " Review " has made insinuations reflecting upon the sanitary conditions of local Japanese dairies,
and in view of the fact that Cumberlatd citizens are largely
dependant upon thest dairies for their milk supply we believe
it is-high time the matter was fully investigated.
Milk is a very delicate and susceptible product and
bacteria find in it an exceptionally favourable medium for
growth. Well authenticated cases are on record of typhoid
fever and diphtheria -jrerms being carried by milk, and there
seems to be proof too that tuberculosis has been spread in this
manner. But the character and number of the bacteria that
get into the milk, and their development, are largely control-
able, and it is the recognition of this fact that has placed
dairies under the supervision and jurisdiction of health officers.
In view of the fact that, next to bread and water, milk >s
used more commonly than any other article of food or drink -
-infants and invalids sometimes being entirely dependant upon
it—it jvould be a source of sincere satisfaction to us all to
receive a report from our health officer, dealing with the actual
condition of all dairies at present supplying the town and the
nutans taken to avoid contamination in tlie producing and
handling of the milk.
The splendid state of Canada's credit in the old laud is
nhown by the high price at which Canada'* recent loan was
underwritten in Loudon last week. The loan for 3,000,000
pounds which Hon. W. T. White floated brought 99, which is
two points higher than the securities of any other oversea
Dominions have been bought. Of this figure 1,700,000 will lie
used to pay off a Laurier government loan which falls due this
Month. The remainder of thu money will be used for tlie
general works of the Dominion. No other loans will fall due
now until the year 1919.
Details of the new parcel post system are Hearing completion and the syyfem will be in operation by the end of the
year. The Post Ollice Department under Hon. L. P. Peiletier
has shown commendable industry in the working out of this
complicated question in so short a time.
Hon. George Fostor has successfully terminated the negotiation for an improved steamship service and for reduced cable
rates between Canada and tlie West Indies. In less than a
month the new service will be in operation and Canadian producer* will be in a position to take advantage of a market
whosti value has long been recognized by tbe United States.

CHAPTER IV
James JIcTurgott waB the first man
llotlurlrigton interviewed after Bister's departure; and his bailiff prom-
tee;! to become a valuable ally. He
possessed an extruordlnu-y memory
which carried hir- hack half a century.
He was a little gairulous and loved
tiliririg about tho past. Hetherlngton let him talk, askL-j Innumerable
Questions. But McTurggot was deaf
and rvo tho questions were not always
answered. He h.rd a curious habit of
staring at Hoth.rlngton over the lop
of hiri spectacles which at first made
the latter uervouu.
if by any chance ho were not Sir
George lletherington, he knew Mc-
Turggot would discover the fact.
When eventually tht old bailiff left
tlie room on h.s two sticks, Hetherlng-
ton's mind had been set at rest on
several Important points. He knew
as surely as he know anything that he
was Sir George; he knew that some
fifieu. or twenty years ago he was a
selfish but fairly gooc". natured young
man, the sole surviving member uf
a ivealthv and once powerful family.
"le had a reputation throughout the
country ot being wild, dissipated and
reckless; popular with the lower classes and a general favorite with women,
rhougli feared. Apparently self wns
ihe only god he hal ever really worshipped.
Not altogether a pleasing character,
vet half humorously Hetherlngton re-
i rinded himself that there were possl-
illitles of leformation. It was obvious
' 'hat he bad taken very little Interest
In his estate and before going away
hart left McTurggot ln command and
nlven hint power of attorney; luckily
for him, the old man was honest.
The situation wns not without Inter-
* Bt, not without romance. The blow
nn his head which had robbed him of
memory had also apparently robbed
li 1 m of some of ills popular vices and
shortcomings. For Hetherlngton
.vas seized with a keen desire to settle
lown in Cranby Hall nnd administer
he eslate himself for the benefit of
lis people, and livo the quiet life of a
-juntry gentleman. And tho Sir
flcorge who hart gone big game shoot-
rig fifteen years ngo had never cvlnc*
,1 nnv desire for quietude!
Well, ho was older now and wiser;
re had seen the world—and waa as
Ignorant of it ns a baby!
What a situation! What an oppor-
r unity for making life happy, lnterest-
ng and beautiful! Yet ho dared not
nok ahead; he could neither dream
ior hope nor think of ambition while
:n Deepshot Wood thero lay the body
3f a murdered man.
As mon as he had finished his business and dismissed all his vlsilors,
Hetherlngton went cnrefully through
his pas', book nnd nil tho papers he
iarl found ln his portmanteau, hoping
lor further enllghtmcnt with respect
lo tht past.    They told him very lit-

i tie; nearly every cheque had been
j drawn on self. Here and there the
name of hotels and tradesmen cropped
* up. Ho was not very businesslike
j nud if he had corresponded he never
; kept his correspondence. That seemed
' slightly suspicious! He hunted for
! the name of Bister but never found it,
! though on the counterfoil of one of the
cheques he found the initial 'C
He wondered whether that meant
Carmen, his mysterious correspondent?
She might be able to tell him something about Oscar Soral! He read
her letter again very carefully. The
writing was not too legible; lt struck
blm for the first time that the letter
ho had read as 'S' mtght also as easily
be Interpreted as 'B.' Was lt Bister
or Oscar Soral sho ba£e him pay and
get rid of!
It was not until the grandfather
clock ln the hall chimed half past four
that he made up his mind to keep his
appointment with Peggy Mehon. He
argued with himself that he ought not
lo go If ho had taken a human life
nnirtB It waa in self defence; he wns
not a fit companion for man or woman,
lie honor.tly examined himself—ho did
not feel like a murderer—then conscience reminded him that he didn't
know a tnurderor's feelings! "He did
not know any feelings except those of
tho last twenty four hours—and they
had been pretty keen aud strong.
Thero was no doubt about what they
were—surprise, fear, which grew at
monunts to panic, moments of curious
exuilntlon and depression, and a feeling for which he could find no name
—unless It wero love.
He tried to laugh at that. Could n
man re.'.lly fall rn lovo at first sight?
Perhaps lt was tl more subtle sense
of sympathy, for Peggy had been the
first human being of his own class
with whom he had spoken. She had
burst into the pitchy black chamber
of hlj life and dispelled the terrible
gloom which filled his heart. At the
same time there was tho unknown woman—Carmen! A bit jf scented lace,
a photograph and a letter were all he
knew of h-;r. He began to realize
that perhaps she had some claim on
him and ho was conscious of a curious
fascination to know more of her.
Whatever he thought of her It was
like the timid knocking ot memory
on tho locked door ot the p-st.
He walked quickly down the lane
towards the river. Peggy was sitting
on tho stone parapet of the bridge,
swinging her legs and knotting a cast
on her i'.nc.
Thought you weren't coming, she
cried ns soon as she saw htm; and you
haven't brought your rod!
I don't want to fish, I want to watch
you ami talk, he replied.
Up or down Btream? Peggy queried.
Down strjam, Hetherlngton replied
promptly.     Up led towards the moorlands!
They walked side by side along the
hank; here and there the ground was
soft e.nd boggy, some times masses of
bracken and furze-brake blocked the
wav, occasionally great masses of
granite boulders faced them. Peggy
proved herself a greater adept at
climbing, scrambling and wading than
Hetherlngton; she was llk> a slim
Diana, a child of the hills and fields.
Watching her, Hetherlngton knew he
wns lost; whether or not love at first
sigh was possible, he knew he loved
her—desired her. He even felt that
she X elonged to him more than the
woods and valleys surrounding them,
and the great house he had just left.
He hnd come from whence he knew
not, to find himself master or" all these
things; his heart cried out that he
must win this womnn and make her
mistress of them.
At last Peggy stopped and threw
herself on a mossy hank and looked r.t
Hetherlngton with parted lips and
dancing eyes. I don't know how
much further you are going but I really think you might begin to fish now.
This is a famous pool; If you had como
a week ago, you would have caught
me!
Is lt too late now?
She nodded'and her cheeks warmed.
Right through the Bummer 1 have hi-d
a swim hero every evening, but a
week ago when wo heard of your arrival In England, I had to stop.
Hcthcririiton looked away, staring
Into the bubbling water. So I landed a week ago? he whispered.
What a funny man you are! Peggy
laughed, digging her heels Into the
turf. You don't see--, to remember
anything you do—hut perhaps you find
lt convenient to forget.
lletherington frowned; the muscles
of hl3 body grew rigid for a moment.
1  luidn't mean to be rude, Peggy
cried hastily.
He recovered himself quickly. I
have a secret, Miss Mehon, which perhaps I will tell you one day—1 must
tell you. I ought to do so at once; but
I am afraid.
Sho Jumped to her feet. Fancy your
being afraid of anything or any one.
Perhaps you have forgotten that old
story about one of your ancestors? Of
course lt Isn't true but rumor says be
killed a man who offended him. somewhere up thero on the moorlands, and
he carried the dead body across his
shoulders right down Into town nnd
fllngl g lt at tho feet of the chief constable, gave himself up.
Hetherlngton turned his back on
Peggy M.ehon. Do you think I would
do thnt?'
Not many years ago, I used to picture you returning home with people
you had killed and captured away ln
the East! You sec you have always
been my hero of romance!
She picked up her flBhlng rod and
stood beside him. We are talking
nonsense; will you have the first cast?
He took tho rod automatically and
advancing a f-r-w Bteps knelt down and
deftly threw over a rising fish. Half
a dozen minutes later he had lnnded a
brace, forgitten the ugly train of
thought Peggy's Innocent conversation
had started, tnd was thoroughly en-
Joying himself.

AN OLD NURCE
Persuaded bcotor to Drink Postum
An old faithful nurat aud an experienced doctor, are a pretty strong combination In favor of Postum, Instead
of tea ano coffee.
The doctor said:
"I began to drink Postum five years
ago on the adv'.c. of an old nurse.
"During an unusually busy winter,
between tea, coffee ano overwork, I
beenmo a victim of In-omnia. In a
month aftor beglnnl.i^ Postum, In
place of t» -nd coffee, I could eat
anything and sleep as soundly aa a
baby.
"In three months I had gain.-.', twenty pounds ln weight. 1 nov use Postum altogether instead of tea and coffee; even at bedtime wllh a soda
cracker or some other tasty biscuit.
"Having a little tendency to Diabot-
es, I used a small quantity of st.cchar-
Ine Instead t! sugar, to sweeten with.
I may add thut today tea or coffee are
never present ln our house and very
many patients, on my advice, have
adopted Postum as their regu'ar beverage.
"In conclusion I can assure anyone
that, as a refreshing, nourishing and
nerve-strengthening beverage, there la
nothing equal to Postum."

Thunderstorms
IB the eourse ol e. recent p*per, Professor W. J. Humphreys, ot tht U.S.
Weather bureau, points out that, as
thunderstorms are usually, 1! not always connected with large cumulus
clouda, lt follow a that a vigorous up-
rush ot air ls a accessary accompaniment ot thunderstorms. Further, If
the upward velocity .t tho air Is as
much as eight metres per Becond—and
lt may easily exceed this amount-
then no water drops, whatever their
size, can tall through It. TKbse already small enough will be carried up,
while the larger drops will be torn to
bits, and the spray thus forn.ed carried aloft. It appears, then that the
strong upward currents of air within
cumulous clourto necessarily must
break up and thereby positively electrify the larger raindrops. Theso ln
turn doubtless unite again, possibly
mar.y times, only to he rebroken and
still further positively charged. After
a time, tho drops of course, reach a
place where tho uprush of air ls not
sufilclont to support them, nnd they
fall as positively chnrged rain, while
the negatively charged spray Is blown
aloft, whence after more or less coalescence Into larger drops, lt falls ns
negatively charged rain, 'hough much
of the negatively charged spray necessarily remMns aloft, where lt la slowly evaporated. Hence the bulk-of the
electricity brought down ls positive,
aud hence, too. the heavier portions of
tho rain, and the larger drops usually
are Positively charged, while the negative electricity ls mainly corflned to
the lighter part of the stor m, when the
drops, as a rule, are comparatively
small. Thia then, is the latest and
apparently, correct Ides, ns developed
hy Simpson, of the origin of the great
amount, of electricity in thunderstorms.
If It hnd a weak point at all. ns first
set forth, lt was In the cssumptlon that
such storms are always accompanied
by n rapid uprush of air. sufficient to
split up the larger raindrops; but Its
discussion seems to justify the assumption, nnd thus fully ' strengthen
the or.* weak link In the logical chain.
Why Duels are Harmless
A large proportion of the duels fn
France end without bloodshed. When
the offence Is Lot ve y serious it ia
agreed beforehand that the words of
cemmand shall be given so rapidly
that duellL'**. will not have time to
take good aim. Sometimes threo
shots are exchanged without a hit, and
then the seconds step ln and—honor
ls satisfied. At the word 'Fire!' the
pistol ls raised instantly, and lt nfnst
be discharged not Inter thai' the word
three, so tlie speed with which the.se
words are given regulates the time in
which It ir. possible to take aim.
Therefore the speed with which they
aro spilten is agreed upor beforehand
this depending upon the seriousness of
the duel. The words are timed with
a metronome. If the encounter be
very serious thlB Is set, st the slowest speed, eighty beats a minute,
which gives time for takinc accurate
aim. A sprred of 140 heats a minute
allows no time for niming, nnd therefore is used when the seconds consider the dud should be madj as little
darrgerous as possible.
The Ma. Car's Fi .-erunner
The first daily overland mall coach
arrived at St. Joseph, Mo., flfty-t- i
yearn ago last Friday^ seventeen days
from Saeremento. The overland stage
was the successor of tho pony express
that had been established between St.
Joseph and Sacramento the preceding
year, and provided a through mall line
from New York to the Pacific coast.
Between the Mtsourl River, tlie western terminus of the railroad, and Sacramento the distance was traversed by
fleet horsemen, each of whom went
Bixty miles. The riders were paid
$ 200 a month, but tho dangf .* from
hostile Indian- was great. The building of a telegraph line to the Pacific
put tho money express out of commission, and the completion ln 186!) of
a continuous line of railway across
the continent, ended the picturesque!
but comparatively slow overland stagecoach system. As a feeder to the
railroad, however.the stage continued
to have a wide sphere of usefulness
for many years, and has not yet entirely disappeared.
To See the Back of Your Eye
Bchlm". the eyo, what Is called the
retina, is Hied with branching blood
vessels, and a curious but perfectly
simple experiment will enable you to
see these. Place yourself in a dark
room, opposite a dark-colored wall;
the- light a candle and holding it ln
your hand, move It up and down before your oyeB, all the time looking not
at the canOrj but at the wall beyond.
After a little practice you will s^e
appear on the wall a great branching
figure ln bluck on r. reddis' surface.
What you are looking at Ib the Bhadc .,-
ot these blood vessels at the back of
your own eye. Perhaps the moat
curious part of the whole thing ls th .t
the part of the eye which receives
the Impression of light must be behind
these blood vessels.
MORE WOMEN THAN MEN
They Throw Off Disease More Easily,
That's the Reason
Tho tact that ln almost all civilized
countries women outnumber,* men has
been ascrlbad to the higher birth rat:
ot girl babies; yet statistics show that
105 boys are "iorn to every 100
girls. According to figures compiled
by a European statistician the girl has
a better chance than the boy of attaining maturity.
He finds that from the third to the
fifteenth year the mortality for both
sexes la the same; from the fifteenth
to the nineteenth yenr the critical age
for girls the girl's chances aro slightly better than the boy's; from the
thirtieth year to the thirty-fifth the
mortality among women ls smaller
than among men. and lt continues
smaller until the seventieth year,
for a deendo and a half, tho sexes
once moro liave the same chance of
survival, but above 86 yeara of a.^e
woman again stands a much better
chnnce than man.
To account for this dlfferenco the
statistician points out thnt woman hns
greater resilience ln shaking off diseases than man. It Is true that the
physical strength of man Is greater
than woman's but a woman's power of
endurance is more robust.
One reason for this Is that woman
possesses a finer perception of her
power of endurance than a man, and
when her perception warns her ot fatigue she stops. A man doea not
stop until his power is exhausted. HIb
nervoua system ls not aa fln-.ly organized as a Woman's, and na Mosso, the
Italian physiologist, has pointed out,
men and women are entirely dependent upon their nerves for caution not
to over-exert. While It la true that
women moro easily contract many diseases, particularly nervotiB and mental diseases, than men, they overcome
them with greater ease.

Royal Punishment
The' constraints and formalities
which surround royalty are particularly trying to youth,, and while the
Queen of Holland could never refer to
her childhood as being a very dull
one, as Queen Victoria ln mature
years described her own at Kensington Palace, yet when her Dutch Majesty was a little girl she greatly preferred playing with her dolls to intending to the official duties that had
al.-eady begun for her. If you don't
behave, I'll make you a que-*--', she Is
said to have admonished un erring
doll.
Again, one day ehe was overheard
telling ne of the dolls, who evidently refused to take a necessary nap:—
If you don't go to sleep, you shall
go out tomorrow In a carriage, and
all the tlmo you shall bow right
nnd left to peoplj who keep pulling
oil their hats I So hurry up and off to

Coal Loading by Vrcuum Pipes
The vacuum-cleaner principle ls
having new applications every day;
but one of the strongest Is for the unloading of coal cars. A big Austrian
power plant Is being equipped to handle all its coal by vacuum pipes. Coal
that la graded according to Austrian
standards as dust coal and nut coal Is
delivered ln carload lots to the plant
and a great pipe Is dropped Into the
car. The coal ls sucked up through
this pipe and carried to the storage
piles two hundred yards away. Coal
for the boiler fires Is carried from the
storage pile by other vacuum pipes
direct to the fire and there UA ln by

Thi Smallest Dynamo
A lllllputlan electric dynamo, perfect
ln every detail, but weighing only a
quarter of an ounc.;, was chowu at
work before the Paris Academy uf
Science. Its constructor ls a French
mechanlclau named Trevet. This dynamo ls three-lifths of an inch, long,
halt nn Inch wide, an*i three-fifths ot
an Inch high. The coil Ib *• quarter ot
an inch ln diameter, arid ls wired with
f.ve and a halt feet ot sill, insulated
copper wire one-flve hundredth of an
Inch In thickness. A tension Is Indicated of 3.0 volts by u current of
0.2 ampere, but as to Its power there
ls no Instrument sensitive enough to

Writing for Posterity
A prominent French critic, the story
runs, once eald to George Bernard
Shaw:
You are putting on a new comedy
Monday night. Let : o attend one of
the dress rehearsals, won", you?
Impossible, said Mr. Shaw. My
dresa rehearsals are always private.
I have to refus. even the most distinguished critics access to them.
But, said the other, I want to write
a critical criticism. If I have to
write and telegraph lt in a few min*
uten on Monday night It will be very
hurriedly done, and I fear lt wlll 3ivo
a wrong ImpreSBlon ot your comedy

Have no anxiety on that score, Mr.
Shaw replied, hlf comedies are ne.

When European democracy continues Its process of relegating to the
position of spectacular ornaments Its
j crowned heads, Interest in the person-
1 nlltltri of these picturesque individuals continues to be ane ot the features of the-social order today, particularly on lire continent.
Tho modern monarch has cotr.e,
more and more, to stand merely as the
symbol of the continuity of national
life, the emblem of tlie people's distinctive nationality and sovereignty.
Even If, In a few scattered Instances,
he protmds to regard himself ac ruler by divine ight, his people ro longer look .ipou him as such.
-Sven Co great Hohenzollern, William II, l.tis recently publicly insisted
Hat his sole object as monarch lias
been, and will continue to be, not tin
glorification of his dynast}, but the
welfare of the German people.

Extre ne Old Age Records'
The recent deatli of a Chinaman in
New York at the dge, as he claimed, ot
149 years, raises the question whether
tho records of extreme old age are authentic. The cases In which men or
women have reached -the century mark
are so numerous that there seems t.o
reason for skepticism concerning
them; but the records of Thomas
Cam, aged 207; William Edwards, 168,
and Henry Jenkins, 169, are open to
the doubt that falls on all mediaeval
statistics. The tables of life Insurance companies within the next century will probably furnish reliable data for future investigators.

A prominent physician lu an Arkansas town has an extensive practice
among the laboring classes, where
economy ls tlu best policy. One day
the little daughter of one of the men
became very sick and the doctor was
hurriedly called. He arrlv .'. and ad
mlnlslered a soothing treatment to the
patient who was soon sleeping sound
ly and upon leaving, prescribed some
medicine which was to be obtained at
the drug store. The next day the
visit had to be repeated, and some
more medicine bought. This was
kept up until the little girl was entirely well, when tho father went to see
the doctor to settle his bill.
As his purse was rather slim, he approached the doctor witli many misgivings.
Here is your bill, sir. began the
doctor, handing him (lie paper. This
for the drugs from the Blore and this
for my •vjsits.
The poor man looked and was horrified at the amount requested, realizing that he could not pay lt all-
Then after thinking a moment he took
out his purse and laid some pieces ot
change In the physician's hand saying: Here's the money for the drugs,
doctor, and—we-will return your calls.

herself into a seat, landing her bulky
grip squarely upon the toes of a young
mau next to her Ho responded with
a look of suppressed rage and pain,
and then shoved tho valise aside, unnoticed by the woman.
A few minutes later, when the ferry
reached Its slip, the young man was
suddenly amazed to behold the stout

liberty, he was about to demand an explanation, when the woman, with a

A   MESSAGE    TO  CANADIANS    '
A Protest Against All Wars, from the
Religious Society of Friends (called
Quakers), addressed to the People
of Canada
Inasmuch as many have undertaken
to stir up the minds of the people of
this, our beloved country, In the interests of war, we, tho above-mentioned society, being a peace-loving people, do feel to send this forth amongst
you.
Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves; but rather give place unto
wrath; for it la written. Vengeance
is mine; I will repay, salth the Lord.
(Rom. xil, 19).
Christ said ln His sermon on the
mount, Ye have heard that it hath
been said, an eye for an eye, and a
tnoth for a tooth; but I say unto you,
that ye who resist not evil; but whosoever shall smite thte on thy right
cheek, turn to him the other nlso.
How can wo actively resist evil, nnd
yet have a clear conscience before
Him who has given these charges?
And If such resistance be wrong for
individuals, surely It must be just as
sinful for nations.
We cannot find In all of Christ's
teachings nny Justification of war or
the spirit thereof, for this spirit which
prompts us to harm our fellowmen is
that of the Evil One. Therefore who-
soever'is actuated thereby opposes
Christ'B teaching.
Whilst we can rejoice over the little leaven that Is working among the
nations of the earth, It would be 'Woe'
unto us to cry 'Peace, peace,' when
tliere Is no peace; and there never
can be so long as armaments are being built for offence or defence.
We. ns followers of Him. who was
proclaimed the 'Prince of Peace,' believe that before God all men are
equal, and that He ls no respector of
persons: therefore, since He, our Su*
preme King and Lawgiver, forbade the
use of the sword, how rran we draw it
for any lesser potentate? The church
of Christ is unfaithful to her trust if
she confront not the world with the
teaching o;' her Lord.
It 13 to be lamented that so many
who profess to he the followers of this
Prince of Peace do engage In the promotion of this great evil. Apart from
the horrors of war, which are well
known, there aro evils caused by war
in the time of peace.
By various crafty and deceit pleas
we bellevoj many innocent ones are
led to have a hand In -hat which they
do abhor. Under a pretence of physical and moral training, the art of
warfare is taught to those ln the
tender years of childhood and youth,
There is noihln . good in this which
cannot be taught our children in our
educational Institutions without the
alii of anything pertaining to war.
The Society ot Friends Is utterly op»
posed to military training In any respect whatever in any of the schools
of our country. Our children can receive physical and moral training on
a peace principle to better advantage
than otherwise; for peace promotes
love, humility, submission and condescension, whilst war promotes hatred,
pride, and such subordination only as
ls brought about through fear, not
love.
We do earnestly de:lre your serious
consideration of these things, that ere
it. Is too late, we might yet be released from the burdensome evils now
casting their -rhadow upon our beloved
country.

at Pickering. Ontario, in th..- Blxth

According to n lr.w promulgated ln

which France paid in indemnity to the
Prussians the previous year was
guarded In tho Tower of July at Span-
dnu, tho famou, fortress situated
eight miles from Merlin. Besides
this amount of money, definitely set
aside, ls a quantity of gold In reserve
for commercial panics. In order to
safeguard such a massive store great
precautions have been taken for bhe
last 42 years. The money is kept on
two floors of the fortress and Is packed
In 1200 oaken chests. Each chest
contains $25,000 In gold. Tho inviolability of these chambers ls secured
in the following manner: They have
triple doors with various locks, whoeo
keys are held by certain officials of the
Ministry of War, and these keys each
open one door, bo that no one official Is ever able to enter alone. The
clamps of the chests are sealed and
stamped In such a way that it is not
possible for them to be tampered with
without danger of instant discovery.
Moreover, lhe weight of each sack and
chest Is reglsUrrcd.

Work   of the   Dominion   Department
of Agriculture
The report ot the Mlnlst. • of Agrt
culture tor the yonr ending March 81,
1913 has been printed. It contains
In concise and readable form a review
of the work tarried on by the Department of Agriculture through Its several branc _*s and divisions during the
year. It concludes also the Orders la
Council that were passed affecting agriculture.
The report ls presented under five
general heads as follows: 1. General
remarks; 2, Arts and Agriculture; 3,
Patents of Invention; 4, Copyrights,
Trade Marks, Industrial Designs and
Timber Marks; 6, Public Health
There Is also Include . an appendix
having reference to Public Health, Exhibition and the Seventh International
Congress held at Rome against Tuber*
culosls.
Referring tc the trade in dairy pro-
duets It Is pointed out that for the Art
time in sixty years no butter was exported to the United Kingdom, but
on the other hand more than six and
one-half million pounds were Imported
into Canada during the year.
In the Seed Branch among other
work almost nineteen thousand samples of farm seeds were tested for
farmers and seed merchants.
The Live Stock Commissioner by
means of public sales distributed upwards of 1,300 breeding sheep, about
one-third of which were pure-bred
rams. In th-5 record of performance
about one thousand cows have been
entered for test. These represent
stock of about 150 farms.
Through the Experimental Farms
system which includes the Central
Farm and fifteen branch farms and
stations an enormous amount of work
has been done. The report not only
gives one a general knowledge of Its
extent but brings to light many accomplishment;, for agriculture. In
Saskatchewan, it is pointed out that
the spring wheat 'Marquis' yielded at
the rate ot 31 bushels per acre. The
still newer Prelude wheat which ripens nine'.*, earlier than other good sorts
was sent out for test during the year.
A much large." quantity Is promised for
distribution during the coming winter.
Many other useful points are recorded
ln the minister's report, copies of
which are available to those who apply for it to the Publication Branch
of the Department of Agriculture at
Ottawa.
It ls usually safe to say that when
a child ls pale, sickly, peevish and
restless, the cause is worms. These
parasites range the stomach and Intestines causing serious disorders of
the digestion nnd preventing the Infant from deriving sustenance from
food. Miller's Worm Powders, by
destroying the worms, corrects these
faults of the digestion »nd serves to
restore the organs to healthy action.

Once Dr. Chase's Kidney-Liver Pills
are introduced Into the family and
their efficiency becomes known thev
are usually found too valuable to do
without. For everyday Ills arising
from liver and bowel disorders they
bring relief pomptly, and when complicated diseases of the kidneys anl
liver develop they often prove a successful cure after doctors have failed. As an illustration, you may read
the following, which was received a
few days ago:
Mrs. John Wright, 53 McGee street.
