The following interesting account
of a climb by W. Bews und W. W. Lefeaux to thc topmost peak of Mount
Begbie has been written for the Mail-

mountains have a certain amount of
thanks coming to them from those
who stay below. At least that is
our opinion when we picture to ourselves the physical exhaustion necessitated by a hard day's climbing
through bush and over rocks ind ice
to reach points frequented by the eagles. Of course the camp meal and
camp fire at the end of the lay n.&y
bo some compensation, and the altitude on a high summit may be conducive to the highest reflections.
Anyway, seeing that all things have
causes, no doubt climbers have reasons therefore.
Last week Vi. Bews and Vi. V7. Lefeaux suddenly decided to get to the
top of Mt. Begbie and silently stole
away at five o'clock Sunday morning. Vie did not sec them, but that
is the report.

That we must recall for they positively assert that nature has protected Begbie from the foot of man by
planting about as many obstacles as
possible in the shape of bush, de it's

that it is possible to pile up and yet
leave surmountable after due effort.
Sunday was a hot day. Does one
perspire freely? There is lots more
water in tho creeks! Southerly for
about four miles through bush and
over hummocks took them to the
lake and BWamp at the foot of the
sky-line shme running from thc Columbia river towards Begbie. Theoretically the top of a hog's back is

Darkness overtook them before reaching the crown of the shoulder and a
drop of not a thousand feet brought
in sight a possible camping place on
the creek side. It is said that tea

"Yes, we were feeling a trifle hungry, hut the pleasure of achieving our

conditions made us forget all about
that. We wero up in the clouds
with a regular hurricane blowing.
The time that those clouds wore making we could only surmise. Somewhere down below us we could hear a
roar of wind surging through the
rocks and see vast clouds charging
out of sjiace and coming straight at
us, then we would crouch behind the
stone cairn or the lee side of a rock

fell nil around. At times the clouds
would break on the mountain side

whirl round both sides without covering the summit nt all. At these
times the sun would be shining

Stone Strikes Gun:
Boy is Killed
A very pathetic affair occurred cn
Friday last at the home of Mr. !l..t-
son, says the Salmon Arm 'Jbsirvar,
which resulted in the death of Lis
little son Teddy who, had ho lived,
would have been eleven years old
this week.
It appears that Teddy had been out
with a gun in the morning and had
laid it down on the ground for a
while in order to do something else
His younger brother, a little chap
only S years of age was calling Ted-
to his lunch and in order to attract
his attention, threw some stones in
the direction of where he was. One
of the missiles must have struck the
gun and caused it to go off with the
result that the bullet struck Teddy
and caused his death.
Dr. Connolly, coroner, held an investigation, but decided that an inquest was not necessary.
The funeral service was held at thc
Old Knderby Road on Monday and
the remains interred in the city cemetery. Rev. W. J. Beamish olliei iti i:r.
Tho funeral was attended by many
friends, included in tho number being
Miss Marjorie McLean nnd the pupils
of the South Canoe school, where the

Vancouver News-Advertiser: That
"eternal triller," Mr. H. F. Gadsby,
makes numerous jokes over the

and incidentally of three other cabinet ministers within four years after
the administration took oflice. The
fact is that the Borden administration is away behind the record. There
was no knight in the ministry when
i! was formed, and now there are
four. Sir Wilfrid Laurier began with
two, and in a little more than a year
iie had live. In six years eight of
those who took oilice with Sir Wilfrid had been knighted, and at least
three were added later. Of the members of the Lnurier cabinet who nre
now living .seven are knights, while
four have pnssed nway. Sir Wilfrid
himself, who had often heen declared
"a democrat to the hilt," and was in
lhe habit of praising Mackenzie and
TllnUo for refusing titles, explained
that ho found it impossible to refuse
without disrespect to tbe Queen. His
colleagues did not think it necessary
to apologize. They wore not democrats to the hilt, but only half way
up tho blade.

GERMAN! S \\\.\\i AT  S
the Meets opposing Germany determined the 'principal of keeping battleships in harbor while attempting to
weaken the enemy through minor war
(are, particularly with submarines
lend mines to a i>oint where the attack oa the main iieet will oiler
some prospect of success.' It is amusing to see him pass over the consequences with tbe observation that
in the first twelve months 'it has
been possible sorely to wound the
British licet.' This is indeed the very
utmost that can be said, for Captain
Persius is of course aware that tho
Uritish licet, with all allowance for
losses, is at least as powerful as it
was when the war began and that thc
odds against the German tleet are
now greater than ever. Nine months
ago the ingenious Herr Kidder
thought it reasonable on the strength
of a few submarines successesses to
anticipate that the tlcets would
'meet on equal terms before the end
of the year 1915.' How very unlikely such an event appears to-day!
As to the submarine warfare on
commerce Captain Fcrsius speaks
With exemplary reserve. He cannot
fail t.e see that in comparison with
the complete extinction of German
maritime commerce the amount of
damage done hy thc U-boats is trifling, so ho contents himself with spec-
culations on the psychological effect,
and he consoles his readers with the
reflection that 'the submarine danger
unquestionably weighs like a nightmare upon the inhabitants of tho sea
washed land,' and that though 'views
may differ as to the final outcome in
this field,' yet 'the expectation is
generally cherished in Germany that
the submarine campaign will help to
accelerate the demand for peace In
Kngland.' A singularly modest ambition as compared with the brave
1 e.ast thai commerce with the United
Kingdom would soon he brought to
a standstill by the German blockade.
tain Persius, moreover, is not
inclined to make too much of the occasions which were hailed by less prudent patriots as glorious triumphs,
He is discreetly silent on the subject
of the bombardments of the English
coast and he does not try to show,
as Hen Rldder did, that Admiral
- pee's victory ..it Chili was won

■   --. WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1915
(The  Daily Mail, Loudon)
II a man has neither nose to smell
with, nor lips to drink with, nor a
cheek to chew in, is ue or can he become a man? Not without a miracle
But there are surgeons, and among
them Drs. Morestin and Tuffiier, of
the Rothschild hospital in Paris, who
perform the miracle, the miracle of
reconstructing a man from his own
M. Cristini, a correspondent of the
•Journal des Debuts' of Paris, was
admitted recently to the Rothschild
hosjiital to see for himself the miracle in question. An attendant asked
him to look at the photograph of a
man wounded in the French trenches
who had been admitted to the hospi-
tal. it was a terrible picture. 'The
face lacked the lower portion of the
left cheek, it lacked the chin, and the
lips and the nose. (Mould that be a
nan? I could not help of Victor Hugo's description, 'His marrow was no
more in his bones nor his voice in
his gullet. Had he ever possessed an
eye, and if so where was it'."
While the correspondent was looking at this appalling picture the hospital assistant made a sign to ono
.if the patients of the hospital who
was just going out to spend an afternoou at a kinemetograph performance.
'Here is our man,' said the assistant. The correspondent started un-
comprehendingly, but the assistant
idded with a smile, 'Yes, I assure
you, this is the patient whose photograph you have in your hand; the
man who was brought into hospital
without cheek, without jaw. without
chin, without  lips, without nose.'
The corresj.ondent at first thought
•he assistant was 'pulling his leg.'
K.ei' the patient who was just going
■nt bore few i.r no sisrns of the terrible wounds indicated in the photo-
graph. His 1,'ft cheek was the twin
brother of the right cheek; he had an
ixcellent chin, lips tbat just opened
in a genial smile, and a nose with, an
irreproachable contour. His face only bore the rapidly vanishing truces
'f some cuts and a few white marks
of surgical sewing. The patient himself proceeded to confirm the assistant's asst: t:..ns. talking in the slang
of the French infantryman: 'Yes, it's
myself; 'twasn't any good the Boches
spoiling my portrait; the doctor
tricked them after all. As you see,
:.e has manufactured for me a very
decent face. For myself, I think he's
improved it. and I believe they'll
tind me more of a knut when I get
back inti> th.? country.' Then he lit
b Cigarette an.! went off to his kine-
matograjih while the assistant con
Mnued the story of the miracle.
*   *   *   *   »
'The ereat point.' lie said, 'was
that the vital organs were still intact. After a few days of continued
cashing and antiseptic treatment the
terrible wounds had practically cica-
trized. Then Dr. Morestin began his
miracle. He took a portion of tho
t's bar!; and used it to replace*
the cheek. With the skin of the back
' ■• fashioned the Ups. Then he took
a portion . I the man's short ribs to
make the nose and the substance of
the chin. Finally, when the man was
practical!', refashioned and could bo
permitted t.. look at his new face,
Ur.  Morestin  asked him if there was
tnything he regretted, The Boldier
replied: 'Yes, my mustache.' 'Oh,
don't you worry about that,' said
'Me doctor, and without even apply-
ing an anaesthetic he took from the
hairy na!"' ,,•' the nre'   a small strip
if skin an'! grafted it on the upper
lip. 'I can't promise you,' said tho
surgeon, 'that you wil] have as vie-
torious a moustache     as that which
you left in the trenches,  but in any
case you won't be hairless.'
The assistant added that though tho
the man would certainly grow a moustache, at present he goes 'English,'
that is, clean shaven. Subsequently
the correspondent was informed that
the Rothschild hospital alone contains over thirty convalescents who
proudly display noses of tlcsh and
blood sculptured for them hy Dr.
Morestin. And at the St. Louis hospital there have been countless
wounded men for whom the miraculous surgeon has reconstructed a part
of the face.
In estimating the consequences of
Germany's triumph in Poland, due
allowance must be made for the tremendous demands made upon its armies in overcoming the Russians. It
would he fantastic to assume that a
large part of the Kaiser's forces can
be immediately swung back to the
western front and be ready for a
vigorous campaign against the English and French. An army, although
victorious, must sutler a fearful loss
in strength and energy in such a
campaign as the German armies have
gone through in the east, and inevitably require a considerable period for
fn the meantime, unless the Germans succeed at once in driving home
their attack and in smashing to pieces the Russian army, the enemy will
have the same opportunity as them-
selvea to rest and reorganize. Ger-
: nny cannot with safety advance
much further into Russia.
Tn the Russo-Japanese war in Manchuria, the Japanese, after defeating
the Russians in the great battle of
Liaoyang, waited six months before
engaging them again at Mukden. This
second victory, far from wearing
down the Russians to the point where
they were ready to sue for peace, lefc
the Japanese with extended lines and
weakened forces against an enemy
whose resources in men were inexhaustible.
The task of beating Russia is still
so formidable as to challenge Germany's full strength on the eastern
i The 'Statist.')
There are several ways in which
Mie producing power of soils may be
Increased; viz., by adding organ c
matter and lime, by increasing the
supply of plant food elements, by
improving the water supply and
tilth.. This is not a fixed improvement formula for every kind of soil,
but it points out methods of attack.

There is a widespread delusion respecting the resources of Germany
which it is desirable to dispel. News-
paper writers and public speakers are
never tired of dwelling upon the, wonderful resource that Germany has
shown during the eleven months of
the war. These people have never
been prepared by the classical education which they received to understand national resources or national
staying power, It is not surprising
therefore, that they are dumbfounded by the evidence given that Germany is  not  yet exhausted.
We are prepared to stake whatever
reputation we possess on the assertion that the two central European
empires have not at the present time
'-ix millions of men in thc field, and
never will be able to bring that
force tn bear upon their opponents.
If the rea,ier will bear in mind what
Is happening here at home he will
share our belief.
We have been engaged in the war
now for over eleven months, and ye.t
we have had to chance our government, to create a new department,
and t'- transfer our most energetic
public man from the Exchequer to
this new department so as to be able
to BUpply our army with sufficient
munitions of war. We have thrown
our whole economic organization into
disorder by withdrawing a couple of
million of men from peaceful pursuits
and enlist ine them in the army; and
yet we are asked to believe that Ger-
many ims withdrawn, not a coujile of
millie'iis. but five millions of men or
over, from productive employments,
and that yet she has beaten all her
adversaries in producing munition
sujejilies in unheard of quantities. The
thing is absolutely impracticable, and
is ns much of a dream as any fantasy   that   haunts   midnight   sleep,
What enables Germany to do what
she is doing in regard t" men is that
she has, since her victory over France
nearly half a century ago, been devoting herself unceasingly to preparation for this war. With that view,
she has built an admirable system of
strategic railways, and by means of
those railways she shifts troops from
France to Toland and back agnin as
circumstances compel her to strengthen the one position or the other.
Hut that kind of thing may be done
for months. It cannot be persist..!
in very lontr.
When one hears of what is being
done Jiy Germany, one should remember thnt a '.-reat deal of the ability
to do BO is derived from plundering
Beleium and the occupied provinces
of France. The resources of Germany
in real, simple truth, are by no
means what they are supposed to be.
They are vcry nearly exhausted, as
will be seen so soon as Russia is in
.' '"isition to bring up overwhelming
forces nr,i to drive the Austrians
and Germans before then. But tho
real resources of the two central Eu-
■ ..'. .n empires are very nearly exhausted alreadv. Hi...

Hitherto  the Bulgarians  have lain
low and saiel nothing in this war.
What Bulgaria Wants
One good point of the situation is
that everyone knows what Bulgaria
wants. She wants concessions from
Serbia and Kavalla from Greece—the
territories that were originally allotted to her by the Balkan Confederation that defeated Turkey.
Hitherto  the allies  have not   been
osed to pay Bulgaria's price.
On the other hand the Dardanelles
are costing the allies a great deal of
blood, too. And if the sacrifice of a
few miles eif Serbian territory would
