Paris. —- This war might well
be called a war of invisible millions. Apart from occasional
bayonet charges and cavalry actions, there is little about it that
is spectacular.
As the battles in the four
countries progress, it is the
shells and bullets from guns and
rifles that cannot be seen that
are spreading death and wounds
among the soldiers of the warring nations.
Miles upon miles of trenches,
miles and miles of barbed wire,
thousands of invisable infantrymen, a never-ending roar and
rattle of invisable cannon and
machine guns — that is the
battlefield today.
The movements of troops are
conducted under cover of night.
Broadly, they are regulated
thus. Each company puts in
three days in the first line of
trenches, three in the second
line, and then has three days to
rest. No words pass as the reliefs are made, one company
crawling in and another out in
deadly silence, with possibly a
few handshakes here and there.
Sentries are silently posted as
the new defenders settle to sleep
until dawn. But the gunners
never sleep. Over the trenches,
from sunrise to sunrise, the
shells scream active defiance
from one line to the other. As
dawn breaks, an almost whispered word of command brings to
their knees the recumbent figures on the straw-strewn earth.

Chicago.-The Daily News prints tha
following from its staff correspondent
at Petrograd:
The Daily Retch of Petrograd quotes
from the Dutch Handelsblad a letter
written by a highly placed German to
friends in Holland. He says that in
Germany it was known at the battle of
the Marne that the campaign had failed
that all Germany's high anticipations
had been shattered, that the German
illusions of conquest were gone and it
was recognized that all energy must bo
directed to the maintenance of Germany's great power.
A German who has just arrived in
Petrograd admits that the people in
Germany are beginning to feel less confident about the war. It is an open
secret, he says, that the German general staff, recognizing the army's defeat
in France, was in favor of retiring with
as little l03s as possible, to thc Rhine,
holding this line with ubout 1,000,000
men and rushing the bulk of the army
against the Russians.
The staff also wished the Crown
Prince removed because of his unruly
and harmful conduct in "interfering
wifli the general plan of enmpaign.
The Kaiser, however, would not listen
to advice and lience the persistent
though untrue rumors of the dismissal
of the chief of staff, Gen. Von Moltke,
were circulated.
German businesj men, he said, view
with uneasiness the ruin of German
commerce and industry. They reproach
themselves with the fact that they left
politics too much in the hands of the
junkers and militarists, while they
themselves were absorbed in busines*

A Trivial Price.
However humiliating to British pride the German submarine
exploits may be, Great Britain
has paid a trivial price for her
command of the sea.
Not only has the British navy
kept the German fleet bottled up,
with the exception of a few vagrant cruisers, but it has swept
Germany's mercantile commerce
from the face of the waters,
held British trade mutes open
and made the transportation of
British troops as safe a.s in time
of peace. It is the navy that
made possible the landing of the
expeditionary force in France
and the continual sending of reinforcements and supplies. It is
the navy that enabled the Brit-

They will be the first to carry j
'the new 15-inch gun, which is
without doubt the worlds dead-1
liest weapon.   As the First Lord
of the Admirality recently point- j
ed out, it is the best gun Great j
Britain has ever had.   It reproduces on a larger scale all the
virtues of  the   13.5-inch  gun.
Its power may be measured by
the fact, that, whereas the 13.5
gun hurls a 1,400-pound projectile, the  new gun  discharges a
projectile  of  nearly  a  ton   in
weight ana  can hurl  this immense mass of metal  ten  or
twelve miles.

The manifold advantages of unimproved highway in reducing the cost of drayage, facilitating social intercourse
promoting school and church attendance, expediting rural
mail delivery, increasing the value of farm lands and promoting agricultural development back from the railroads,
are so great that they need but to be enumerated to present a convincing argument in favor of road improvement.
Hence we take the position that the obvious plan of
greatest good to the Province, is for the Government to
go into the road building, end of developing the country
and employ all the men they can right now to build roads,
as the quickest way of opening up the land to settlement,
and let the settlers clear their own land.

802] GRANVILLE, (near Robson,) VANCOUVER, B.C
The Newspapers throughout Canada, Real Estate concerns and general sources' of information point to an insistent demand for land, and how to get it. The Govern-
ments are counseling a greater production of the fruits of
the soil. Our own observation prompts the assertion that
there is a prodigality in land use that is not conserving the
country's greatest asset, but rather a careless let-well-
enough-alone spirit that will surely bring the soil to a
poverty condition not good for the future of the Dominion.
At the same time there is an insistent demand on the
governments of the Provinces, and of Ottawa, for the employment of men in this period of depression to clear the
land in the thickly wooded districts, and thus bring it to
a state of cultivation.
We learn that the Provincial Government is considering
some plan for the clearing of Government land in British
Columbia. We trust the Government will find some feasible and economical method of employing men throughout
the Province at a time when general business conditions
are not in sufficient condition of prosperity for the individual worker to conduct extensive work. The clearing
of land is, in reality, an undertaking of too great a magnitude for the strongest financial concerns to undertake, as
it will mean the investment of money in large volumes for
a long term of years.
Such an undertaking partakes of socialistic schemes, and ™p„.t.JLea!.!.
to launch the government on the seas of paternalism and a
general dispenser, opens up too many avenues of privelege
and favoritism in which the few will benefit and the many
pay the price.
the Government has been trying the Homestead plan of
settling the land in British Columbia but as a whole one
can hardly call it a success. In fact the Pre-emptor has
been styled the worst speculator of land in the country,

farmers and land owners nre taking the
necessn.y steps tee destroy the weeds
growing on  their lands,   anil   in   the
event of non-complance with notices
served on them lo institute proceedings
against them.
The Department is determined to use
every legitimate effort lei have the
provisions of lhc Act strictly enforced
anel we look for lhe whole - hearted
co-operation of the farmers themselves
in this most important matter.
The following list has been drawn up
in the Department with regard to the
Noxious Weeds which are listed in the
Act. Methods of destruction can be
secured by writing the Department
mentioning this article.
Weeds may be tlevided into three
c I asses — Annuals, Biennials, and
(1) Annuals complete their growth
in a year. The prevention of the formation of seed for one year, followed by
careful cultivation to kill pll young
plants, will soon eradicate Annuals. In
addition to this, all seed in soil should
be encouraged to germinate in order to
complete control.
(2) Biennials require two seasons to
complete their growth, the flowers and
seeds being produced during the second
year. Due notice should be taken of
this fact when fighting weeds of this
(:l) Percnniils are plants which con
tinue to grow for many years, being
propagated by underground root-stalks,
stems, etc., as well as by seeds. The
aim in fighting perennials should be to
prevent any growth from being made,
hence starve the root systems.
There is no known weed which cannot
be eradicated if proper measures are
taken. Never allow seeds to ripen, and
if they do, encourage them to grow so
the plants may be killed by cultivation.
The names of lhe weeds mentioned in
the Act are  as  follows  classified :—
ANNUAL - Pussian Thistle, Wild
Mustard or Charlock, Tumbling Mustard
Hall Mustard, Stink Weed, Ragweed,
Blue Bur or Stick Seed, Dodder, Wild
BIENNIAL-Bull Thistle.
