Drowning at Halcyon not Result of Suicide—Dynamite
Without Result
That a diver will probably be
brought Irom the coast to search for
the body of W. H. Murray of Arm-
Htrong who is believed to have lost
Ms life in the waters of Arrow Lake
ut Halcyon last Friday, is the statement of D. H. Murray of Armstrong
who passed through the city last
night ou his return from Halcyon
where he has been •searchiug for his
brother's body. Mr, Murray used
nine cases of dynamite and broke
three grappling irons in his endeavor
to recover the body.
Mr. Murray says that his brother's
ilc.-it h was undoubtedly the result of
an accident and is indignant that
Borne newspapers should have insinuated that his death was the result
of suicide.
He states that his brother must
have been walking along or standing
on the edge ot the wharf und must
l.avc slipped as the coat he wus
wearing was found about 12 feet
from thc wharf and had a tear in the
bark as if it had caught on something. His brother bad been taking
three hot baths a day and may have
taken cramps while getting his overcoat ofl. x
The late W. Murray's affairs were
all in good order and his brother

Halcyon, B. C, Sept. 29.—W. H.
Murray, a young business man and
well known lacrosse player of Armstrong, B.C., who came here suffering
from a nervous breakdown, disappeared about 10 o'clock lust Friday,
Mr. Murruy's overcoat s and coat
were found floating in the water.
A prolonged search for the body
proved fruitless. From letters tound
in his coat it appeared he had been
writing home to his friends since his
arrival and had during the day writ-
■ten but not mailed a cheerful letter
to a business associate. Tbe fact that
the man's hat could -not be found
leaves a possibility that he may
have'wandered off, but this is unlikely and the hat, a heavy felt, may
have sunk.
Grappling irons were sent from' Revelstoke, but the body has not been

Veterans of India and

"Our officers were some of the beBt
that ever walked. They had all seen
service and most ot them were veterans of India und South Africa", said
T. Hope, who returned on Sunday
trom the coast. Mr. Hope with the
other railway men Irom Revelstoke
who enlisted in the Royal Canadian
engineers for service at the front
have returned owing to the recent
order to demoblize on account ot
temporary lack of necessary equipment.
The Revelstoke continent was regarded as one of the best that has
yet volunteered and all the men have
been promised places in the second
Canadian contingent.
"Our officers" said Mr Hope "were
splendid. Tbey did everything that
the men were aBked to do. They eat
the same rations and did equully
hard work. While the officers ol other contingents rode our officers

Sunday Night Blaze on First
Street—Insurance is
Fire on Sunday night practically
destroyed the home of H. W. Leigh
at 16 First street with Its contents.
Soon after one o'clock the tire
broke out iu thc kitchen. Mr. Leigh,
who was asleep at thc time did not
awaken until the Are had a strong
hold on the house. He turned in an
alarm from fire box No. 11 and the
brigade was quickly on the scene
but the house wu3 doomed. The tire
spread to the home of W. Farral ud-
joining, but the blaze was quickly
extinguished before any serious damage had been done.
After the lire brigade had dispersed
the blaze again broke out in Mr.
Leigh's house, but the fire wns extinguished with buckets of water.
There was $1000 insurance on the
house placed by W. H. Horobin. On
the contents, all of which were destroyed with the exception of a box
of clothes, there wub no insurance.
Cloud-burst Visits Crazy Creek
—Three Hundred and Sixty
Trout in Four Hours
Three hundred and sixty trout in
four hours were caught in the north
fork of Crazy Creek by <;. It. Law-
tence, John Mnrkstrom, C. Lidstone
and Richard Lawrence jr., on Sutur-
day. Two baskets and a box were
Tilled and brought home by Mr. Law-
I rence who left RevelstoKe on Friday,
In'ight and returned on Sunday night.
Thirty-eight fish were caught by
Richard Lawrence.
I The party only fished for a short
| time as at noon on Saturday a
fierce hail storm followed by a
cloud burst und fierce wind made fishing impossible. The wind blew down
at least .">H0 trees in the neighborhood and the purty were forced to
take refuge in a Cabin built by a
! prospector 15 years ago and which
! still stands.
The trout teem in Crazy Creek,
says Mr. Lawrence, but the trail into the fishing ground is exceedingly
difficult and few anglers care to
surmount the difficuit'ies.
Mill Commences
To Cut Lumber
Ten thousand feet of lumber were
cut at Nelson on Saturday at the
new mill of J. 8. Deschamps, the
Rossland lumberman, which has beeo
erected during the past two months
on the watertront. This was the first
cut made at the mill, which is about
ready for the commencement ot
steady sawing.
Mr. Deschamps expects that it will
commence cutting at its lull capacity of lO.iiiiii feet per day tomorrow,
when it will be turned over to Thorpe
& Woods, who have the contract for
cutting the lumher for Mr. Deschamps. The mill is cutting tor the
torest Mills ol British Columbia,
them cleaned, so that everything will
be clean and wholesome when operations commence.
Gymnasium classes lot girls and
young Indies will be resumed as soon
as a representative number bas been
secured. Saturday will be thc day set
apart for these classes..
un Sunday October 4, will be held
the opening meeting tor men, which
will commence nt 3.45, with a fifteen
minute song service, for thc boys to

Grounding fence wires affords considerable protection from lightning
and is a worth-while investment for
farmers, according to Frank M.
White, of the College of Agriculture,
University of Wisconsin.
As hundreds of valuable animals
are struck by lightning in this state
every Summer, many of the casual-
tics being directly due to currents
carried along pasture fences, such
advice is particularly timely.
To secure the best results ground
wires ought to be placed about 100
feet apart and closely stapled to the
post, so ns to form a contract with
every one ot the fence wires. The
ground wires    should     also     extend
Canadian Pacific Engaging Men
for Ballasting and brush
OI the 130 to 2i 10 men that it is
expected will be employed in ballasting and brush cutting by the Canadian Pacilic railway between Revelstoke and Field, 12 have accepted employment at Revelstoke. Thirty-nine
have been obtained from other parts
of the district, ninety have been secured at Vancouver and it is expect-
td that some 75 more men will be
obtained at Revelstoke. All the men
so tur engaged are married, as preference for employment is being given to man'icd men. They are working between Rcvelstoiie and Sicamous.
The rate of wages oflered is (1.80
u day with a charge of 34.00 a week
for board..
Twelve work trains, bearing nearly
one thousand men, formerly out of a
job, left Calgary yesterday morning
lor different parts ot Alberta to
start work on the ballasting of
lines on the Canadian Pacific railway, which will be resumed at once,
following instructions received trom
Winnipeg. All the compuny's ballast
I its in Alberta will be opened at
ence under the new order and sir
bteam shovels will immediately go
into action. No employment agency
or medic tl fee has *n»»n chnrged
against these  men.
Although iii! the work of this nature had been suspended for the year,
the policy of the company was changed almost over night for the purpose of d-ing nil it can to give
work to men who might otherwise be
unemployed for the remainder of the
year. Instructions from headquarters
in Winnipeg are that married men
shall he given tbe preference and
that work shall be continued as long
as possible during the fall. For thiB
purpos» on the Alberta division this
morning there wre started out 12
work trains with six steam shovels
and with sis ballast pits under full
operation. Similar work wus started
on all other divisions on western
lines, thus making the number of
men employed run into thc thousands.

Canada Will Benefit by   Big
War   Empire Will not Forget Dominions
Among the hundreds of idle stockbrokers who meet daily tn Thrograor-
ton streets to discuss the chances of
the "House" re-opeiuug there is but
one opinion regarding Investments.
The public baa been attracted by the
glamor of high yields iu Continental
;unl South American concerns but
this war bus taught investors the
lesson that the safest investment iB
ono made under the Uritish Hug.
This will be recognized more than
ever at the close of the war when
there will l"' an enormous umouut of
capital seeking an outlet and when
the Investor will have no lack of
choice. This is one bright promise of
the future so tar us Canada is concerned. Said a leading financier:
•'Sentiment! Empire sentiment has
in the past been largely responsible
for the investment ot lurge blocks ot
British capital in your Dominion;
and when the war is over you can
rely on such an increase in this leel-
>ing that will ensure rapid development of the resources of Canada. No
country in the world hus had such a
splendid write-up as Canada has bad
during the lust month. The existing
sympathy of ull classes in the Motherland towards the Dominion has
been strengthened to an cuthusiusm
that will mean much when peace
comes again. Just us we may expect
a vigorous national feeling against
Hupporting any German enterprise by
j.urchusing goods made in Germany,
so we can look forward with certainty to the creation of a scbool
of investors the motto of which will
be 'Investment under the British
flag.' "
Opinion  Generally Held
In varying forms that opinion
seems to be generally held. Already
those who bave placed their money
ju Canada are congratulating themselves on the result, it is rccogci^'l
that the high yields to be l>j.J in the
Dominion have far more justification
than tbe same return on capital
placed elsewhere This feeling will
undoubtedly bring about still lurther
investment in the Dominion later on,
Ior it is only a matter of time, and
n short time nt that, before the ordinary course of business will be resumed in most brunches ot industry
and this means the accumulation of
more capital.   '
Attention is already being given to
the opportunities presented to investors by the conditions which will
prevail for some time to come in thc
lood markets of the world. Thc sup--
ply will be diminished in Europe und
should be increased in Canada. Farm
lands will unquestionably increase in
value, so that mortgages on such
property are better secured than they
have been hitherto. It is in thiB
direction that capital may be expected to go to Canada and this will
telp in two ways.
More Laud I'nder Cultivation.
More land will be brought under
( ultivation, so as to increase the
supply not only of wheat but of cattle and horses; and there will be
s-reater inducements for settlers
whose incoming will add to the demand for building materials, while
the railways will benefit by the additional traffic. Leader.-! of thought
in this country, investors whose    in
vestments are not made entirely on
the per cent basiB will regard the investment of their funds In Canada as
an obligation to show their appreciation of the Dominion's outstanding
generosity in the present time ol
stress. Thousands of the young men
who have left office and desk for
active service will dislike the prospect
of returning to a sedentary life and
will seek another career in the overseas Dominions. Canada will attract
them in large numbers and they will
lie a good type of settlers. The few
far sighted peoplo who control recognize that this type will be finding
j the way  to Canada and arc making
! plans to meet the new condition.
Many of these men will have capital
enough for a start and will Beek thc
'districts already opened up, Owners
of land in these areas may expect a
considerable demand,     The roaming
i spirit of tbe Englishman is by no
means dead. This war will revive It;
und the splendid response of Canada
to the Empire's need will intensify
the desire to know more of the lands
v.herc this patriotic spirit has developed to such magnificent purpose.

then that the plateau was fortified.
Quito recently some ot the most
massive guns produced by Krupp's
were placed there, while provisions
were laid in sufficient to withstand a
siege of three ycarB. Money, in fact,
was spent like water that the island
should become the North Sea storehouse ol the German fleet.

Germany's Costly Island fort
Hellogolnnd fortifications have cost
Germany enormous sums of money.
The island, which has an area of only three-quarters of a square mile, is
looked upon us one of their most
treasured possessions.
Since the Germans obtained possession of it, enormous sums have
been spent upon fortifying the island,
as well us $30,000,000 spent on protecting the coast from erosion. Pra-
bably it. will never be known how
ninny millions Germany has spent in
strengthening the place. But it is
known that a million and a halt was
spent in improving the harbor as an
anchorage for torpedo craft. Millions
have been spent on fortifications and
the construction of powder magazines, while refuges have been built
for the inhabitants as a protection
against the island being shelled by
un enemy.
Two hundred feet from the water
there stands a series of big gun batteries and armed turrets, an attempt
having been made to turn the island
into a German Gibraltar.
For purposes of protection, a clifl
of granite was built, bo that the island now to n large extent possesses
cliffs which are purely artificial. In
addition, hundreds of tons of cement
were used to strengthen the face of
the natural rock. Most of the people
depend for their livelihood upon the
lobster and other fisheries, together
with their harvest (rom the summer
visitors. They live to long years, and
have as their native tongue the North
Frisian dialect.
In 1807 Great Britain obtained the
island from the Danes. When she took
possession of the place "it was tbe
"jumping eround" of a horde of
smugglers, there being practically no
room left on the island which was
free from kees and human beings. In

as their consideration for our taking

plums are just beginning to appear
upon thc market, and in accordance
with custom, the prairie housewife is
about to commence her seasonal
fruit preserving activities.
"The war scare, however, has had
such an effect upon the price of
j sugar, that many people ure wondering whether they may not have to
curtail the quantities of fruit thut
they will put up.
"It Is in the endeavor to re-assure
such a large class of your readers

"(1) While so muny essential articles of food have risen in price on
account of the war, fruit is and will
be as cheap as ever. There will be
distinct economy, theretore, in using
it to replace us far as possible other
more expensive foods.
"(2) Excellent results can be secured with fruit put up without the
use of sugar. Although not a general
practice, this haB been done by many
people for years, and authorities on
preserving all agree that fruit so
preserved retains its distinctive flavor
very much better, und is altogether
superior to that put up in the ordinary wny. The only point is that when
preserving without Bugar, it is necessary to be particularly careful to see
that the jars are sealed air-tight,
and to insure this, the parafin wax
top should bc UBed in eveiy case. Of
course, sugar will eventually have to
l.e used in prepuring the fruit for
the table, but, In this connection I
may point out,(l) that very much less
sugar is used in this wuy, when sweetening to taste, und (2) thut there Is
every likelihood that long before any
great proportion of this season's preserves is used, sugar prices will be
normal again.
"To put up fruit without sugar,
simply prepare the peaches or plums
in the ordinary way, place them in
jars, fill with cold water, then place
the jars in a boiler filled with cold
water, and heat to the boiling point.
A board should bc placed in the bottom of the boiler to keep the jars
from the direct heat of the stove.
Fruit thus prepared will be found excellent for pies, delicious for eating
with cream and generally superior to
the sugar syrup preserves. If the jars
are nroporly air-tight, they will also
keep quite us long."

All International Fixtures Cancelled   Majority of Players
in Military Service
London, Sept. 2l>.—It is now almost
certain that there will be no Rugby
lootball this Winter. Following the
lead of Blackheuth, practically all
I the leading clubs, withe tho exception
ot those in Wules huve abandoned
their programmes. Thc Rugby Union,
in issuing a munifesto calling on
players to join the army, have cancelled thc international fixtures.
There has been a mugnincent response
on thc part of Rugby players to
their country's call. Nine-tenths ot
the men who played for England last
year are now fighting uuder S'ir John
French In France—and I just at this
moment helping to curl up the Germans oust of Puris--or serving in the
nerve racking North Sea vigil with
the gallant Admiral whom the navy
knows as "Hell-lire Jackj' Jellicoe.
So many rugby players have enlisted
that few clubs, even if they w'ished
to, could not place a team in the
tield. The case of Hcadinglcy, the
famous Yorkshire club, is quite typical. Out of a playing membership
ot about forty, no fewer than twenty-live have already gone to the
tront, or are training at home impatient to do so. This general shutting down of rugby was comparatively easy, und the prosperous union can
afford to sacrifice the $•_>.*>,000 that
might have come to them aB the result of the international matches.
A general dislocation of the association gume, which is now a huge
commercial enterprise, would have
been serious. As it is, thc financial
Iosb can be only minimized by continuing the game. Matches that have

Bional leagues have not drawn half
the usual gutes. How true this is appears from thc meeting between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, the
most interesting league match played
during tbe season in London, when
only IS.0'10 people were present. In
the ordinary way thcre would have
been at least 50,000. Professional
football cannot be stopped without
causing a great deal ot hardship, because, while players have contracts
that are binding in common law, the
game is a means ot livelihood tor
many hesideB those actively engaged
in it.
For this reason, perhaps, it is ungenerous to question thc personal
patriotism or the sportsmanship of
those identified with it.
Besides all this, the matches have
proved a most valuable aid to tbe
general scheme of recruiting. Whenever possible speakers have addressed
the spectators at the finish of the
play, and many fine recruits have
thus been obtained. Clubs and players, too, nre playing their part as
beat they can. Substantial donations
tave been made by the more wealthy
organizations to the National Relief

According to the Dally Mail investigations at Liverpool and other
ports it seems that foodstuffs and
raw material are still being shipped,
even from Uritish ports, for the use
of the Germans. Shipments made
from Liverpool, last month, of canned goods, feeding cakes, flour and
cotton seed oil were ostensibly bound
for Holland, but comparison with
exports ol other years makes it more
than probable that they have gone to
Germany. One Liverpool firm, the
Mail says, has refused to supply its
Rotterdam correspondents with raw
materials until Holland ceases to
supply Germany.

W. J. Spears of London, England,
whose knowledge of Western Canada
dates back to 1880-, has ]ust completed a tour over the Grand Trunk
Pacific railway between Winnipeg and
Prince Rupert. While fishing on the
Nechaco river he came upon a party
of Indians who had just landed four
giant sturgeon. The largest of these
wub nine feet long and weighed 800
pounds. It would appear that Canada-
has no reason to go to Russia Ior
its caviar when such sturgeon as
these can bc caught.

A new Germany has spruug into
existence since 187U. Among the many
speculations which this war will confirm or disprove is the eflcct upon
the military power of the Fatherland
of the economic revolution into an
industrial country. It was tbe rural
recruit that marched on Paris and
crushed the power of Napoleon III.
Almost two-thirds of the population
ol Germany live today in the towns
and industrial centres. In the year
1870 agriculture employed 17 per
cent of the population. In 191*2 the
proportion had fullen to 28.6 per
cent. The Immediate results ol the
industrialization of Germany are seen
in the large decrease ol births in the
towns and in the inferior stamina of
the men as tested by their fitness for
military service. OI the town conscripts lit for service in the army in
1906 a military commission discovered that 71.97 of their parents came
from the country and only 1,68 per
cent Irom the towns. Between the
jearB 1S76-I910 the birth rate had
fallen :)0 per cent in towns and 16
per cent in the country districts.
Germany, in common with other industrial communities, has paid a
high price for her lopsided economic
The migration from rural to urban
centres tends to react more injuriously on the physical qualities of
the German people than on those of
neighboring European nations. Germany has forty-eight towns with
more than 100.0UU inhabitants, compared with only fifteen In France,
thirteen in Italy, and nine in Austro-
Hungary. Does this weakening ol
agriculture seriously aflect the military Btrength of Germany as compared with her powerful antagonists?
a nation in the last resort lies     not
in its wealth,     but     in the fighting
qualities of its people.     A numerous
and virile population is   the     backbone of national     defence.     To  her
clansmen and yeomanry and to     her
fishermen and     sailors   from seaport
towns Britaiu owed her victories    in
the past. The lighting instinct of the
breed still survives, but the     decline
iu agriculture and the passing ol the
old-time sailor    make it Increasingly
difficult to maintain thc efficiency   of
the British services.  Germany,   however, labors under greater disadvantages.  One  of  the  fatal flaws in  Germany's industrial  rise has been    the
inordinute    haste    with    which     her
statesmen set about the economic revolution.     Ambitious ol a place     in
the councils ol thc greut powers, German statesmen deliberately set about
the amassing of wealth through   the
creation ol 'industries us the quickest
way to the building   up ot a     navy
und to securing a dominant place   In
world politics. They committed     the
blunder ol underestimating the     im- :
tortancc of agriculture to a country I
without colonies and as yet without I
a fleet powerful  enough  to     protect i
her overseas commerce.    An attempt
has since been  mndc to readjust thc ;
balance between ugriculture und     In- I
dustry by protective tarlfls, but thiB,
in its turn, has led to much     misery ;
und discontent in tbc     towns.     Gcr- i
many, in thc midst ol war, finds that
the abnormal rise ot     her industries
end thc building ot a fleet which     Is {
unable to maintain her trado routes, I
do not compensate her tor the     des-
st ruction ot her agriculture.
Thanks to her dominions and colonies, Britain can still aflord to roly

The decline in her agriculture, therefore, docs not cripple her at this
crisis. But for Germany it is verily u

Britain, Germany built up industrialism at the expense of her ugriculture

Of thc .10 odd Revelstoke boys enlisted with the Sixth Field company
o: tho Cunadian Engineers at North
Vancouver, all hove returned to their
homes with the exception of a few
who wereidetailed for duty, repairing
and operating searchlights at Esqui-
malt and these are expected home
within a few days. The news of the
demobilization of the company which
is a unit of the Canadian militiu,
cume us a great surprise to both
officers und men, as a report had
just been circulated to the effect
that tbey were to leave Ior Alder-
bhot, England on the 17th of next
month. While only a few of the local
boys had had any previous military
experience, all were agreed that in
the matter ol officers at least, the
Sixth Field company was easily the
pick of the military organizations on
the coast. This can be readily under-
Etood when it is known that for
every man enlisted in the present
company, eight were turned down by
either the medical man or the commanding officer, often for reasons •
which in other divisions of the army
would be considered trivial, while
after a wurning, if any offence was
repeuted the only punishment meted
out was an instantaneous discharge.
The men speak very highly ol the
treatment given them by Capt. Ward
and his fellow officers whom they !
describe as the best bunch of fellows ,
they ever met, and a visitor just returned from the coast says the feeling is reci procated to an equul extent by the officers when speaking of
the Revelstoke and Kamloops recruits. The majority have returned
to the positions held by them previous to leaving for the coast, but
all are looking forwurd with considerable pleasure to the time when
rhey will he asked to join their company enroute to Europe. In the
meantime they expect to perfect
their drill in the local drill hall,
while it is probable that an Instructor from the Royal Engineers now
stationed at Victortn, will be sent
here to give them the remaining lectures, and demonstrations in the engineering course.

The following poem by G. H. Lawrence, un uncle of G. R. Lawrence ot
Kevelstoke appears in the Truro
■ Ohl  woe to the morn 1 started this
Thought    my soldiers were men, they
turned out just cattle'
They wilt,  they retreat,  they fly  and
they squeal
iWhen the Dritlsh come at them with
bayonets of steel.
I planned to be Kaiser   of     all   the
whole earth,
From north to south pole, to the
hind of my biith;
But by signs of the times, I'm beginning to think
II my country's not ruined she's just
on the brink.
Those pig-bended Uelgiuns were servants of mine,
Thought I'd sneak through their
towns eusy and fine;
".But the French hutted in, and to
war they were goaded,
And Me and Mein Gott didn't know
it was loaded.
And now I am beaten in the Valley
of Seine,
The French have recaptured Alsace
and Lorraine:
Tho Belgians are asking for a billion or more,
The all'ies are knocking at back and
front doors.
I weep for my   soldiers,     so     mild,
though so bold,
I Who have murdered the women   and
babies untold;
"Go back     and   sit down."     You'll
never have rest.
For vengeance is coming from north,
south, east and west.

Three Squares a Day
In spite of war and the horrors of war a vast number of Canadians are going to need "three squares a day" just as in

The bottom hasn't fallen out of trade. On the contrary a
new bottom has been put in. Live advertisers are going after
the new business, new markets, new fields made possible by
this great and unfortunate   war.
Jii«t as modern methods of warfare will add new efficiency, new
feat, res to this war so modern methods     of   selling through
real a ^"er'.isin;; and merchandising will add new efficiency to
the comrieictal eCort set   in motion by the war.
American ma..;'facturers have discovered that owing to the
shutting ofl of German exportitions they have a brand new
market at their doors for such commodities as chemicals, drugs,
medicines, copper -in-l manufactures, cotton goods, earthen
store nn>i China wo' . g'ass and glass ware, malt liquors,
spirits, wines, silk manufactures, fruit and nuts, gloves, embroidery, hats, stee1. and iron manufactures, toys etc.
The American advertisers are re-adjusting themselves with
wonderful rapidity and redoubling their efforts to secure new
trade heretofore denied them. Those who hesitate will lose a
tremend. is opportunity and be handicapped for months perhaps
years, to come.
