That Quebec gentlemen, who stated that to bring back
the farming industry and induce farmers' sons to follow
in the footsteps of their fathers the government must
adopt some system of assisting the man on the land, knew
what he was talking about.
While there are undoubtedly other influences that
have tended to raise the cost of living to the point which
it now occupies above the height of the ordinary man, still
it must be confessed that the general trend of movement I
from the land to the city has had a great deal to do with
affairs as they now exist. What the country needs is more
farmers and if men who are capable of going to the soil
and making it produce will not do so of their own free will,
then it is up to the government to offer them some inducement to turn their attention to things agricultural. ���
The suggestion from Quebec is to the effect that the
government build small houses and barns on available land
and give this to capable farmers at low cost and easy terms
in an effort to counteract the drawing influence which the
city seems to have on the present generation.
The country must have farmers. It is an old.and
moss-grown expression that one, relative to the agriculturist being the spinal column of the country, but it is
true, in spite of the misusage politicians have given it.
Therefore, it is easy to figure what will become of the
land when it loses its backbone. It will not be able to
stand up.
With food prices travelling higher all the time, something must be done to relieve the strain and the natural
thing is to provide a greater supply. This can be accomplished by the government holding out some inducement
to bona fide farmers to go back to the land, and the Quebec plan to supply them with a ready-made piece of ground
and buildings looks like the best suggestion so far.

Shrewd Jap Diplomat

After Careful Consideration He Comco
to Conclusion That Japanese Civilization Is Superior to That

Forest  Branch of the Provincial Government  to   Have  Samples
Thoroughly Tested.
Victoria. Dec. 14. Under an arrangement arrived at between Hon. W.
H. Hosb, minister of lands, and the
British Columbia Shingle and Lumber
Manufacturers' association, the forest
branch  will have samphs of Douglas
fir submitted to the most exhaustive
series of tests with a view to standardizing this timber for the commercial market.
Several months ago the United
states government made a grant to
the forestry school of tlie university
of Washington al. Seattle I'or the purpose of determining the breaking
Strength, durability and other features
of this wood; and the agreement to
prosecute this work in this province
will lie warmly welcomed by the lumbermen.
The tests will probably he carried
out hy experts of the Dominion gov-
renment at McOill university at Montreal, and thc publication of these figures will, :; is expected be an important factor in making this wood more
widely known among th'.' architects
and buyers in the east.
Tlie practical monopoly enjoyed by-
yellow pine as a building material in
Ontario and other eastern provinces is
believed to be du.', not to any Inherent superiority of the timber Itself,
but to the fact that the qualities of
yellow i^lne have been standardized
for several years and its properties
are well known to builders and contractors.
With the adopttion of a system of
standardization It is believed that the
exportation of Douglas fir from this
province will Increase rapidly and the
results of the experiments will be
eagerly awaited by the lumber industry of this coast.

Victoria, Dec. 14.���Unless some provision be made relative to tli? regulations governing physical drill, it would
appear as i: the existence of the High
School Cud'ts. the B.nior corps of Its
kind in th province, wlll he terminated. Tli" BUbJecl was discussed at
the regular monthly meeting of the
hoard of school trustees lasi evening
and. after tli" members of the hoard
had expressed their desire Hint the
corps Bhould lie continued and nothing allowed to terminate its existence. Superintendent Paul was Instructed to Interview Colonel Hoy and
Mr. Cunningham, the latter physical
director at the high school, with a
view to so arranging drill hours that
the cadet corps should have stated
drills during the school  hours.
The trouhle appears to he that since
the adoption cf the terms of the
Strathcona trust, physical drill must
he given to lhe high school pupils, and
th? time for tiie cadet drill cannot,
therefore, he wel Ispared, It is the
Intention, alter the holidays, to eliminate the cadet military drill. At present the cadets get two periods weekly,
a prac:.ce whicb has heen followed
for the last eight years, lint with the

other arrangements can he made. Col

Recall  of  Viscount Aoki.
With  regard  to the s ictlon  dealing
with the Japan-American I eaty, the
memoirs clear up once ami for ail tiie
doubt which has existid as to the r a-
sons for tlie sudden recall of Vise mni
. Aokl from Washington in December,
IHOT. It appears that the Japanese
ambassador drafted :' treat) between
.lapan and America which lie submitted   to   the   president   of   the   United
.States and obtained his approval of
it, and only thereafter Informed tti*
Japanese foreign off lee of what hc
had done.
The section of Ihe memoirs relating
to ihe Franco-Japanese agreement is
principally Interesting for the explanation that the policy of Japan was directed to the creation and maintenance of a sphere of Influence, a policy
! which probabiy still continues today.
although tie significance of the ipbere
iof Influence was hidden by the careful
drafting of the text.
Tho most interesting portion to the
world al large of the Japan se statesman's apologia his to do with the
policy   of  Japan   towards  China,  and
, his  outspoken   discussion   of  Chinese
land  Japanese  modes of thought  and
i action.
Dwelling on  the situation after ths
IRusso-Japanese war. Count llayashl
describes at i iuch length th efforts
made to est.ill.sii gocd relations with
China. Til" following passages arc
worthy i f not' :
Crabbing   Policy   cf   Scldierr.
"G nerally speaking,   soldiers   who
have  wen   battles  have  tioae  liy   by
making b:k r':i'*i s.  cen , :  what  they
value   mest   ::i   the   world    lhelr   own
��� lives. Natural!;.-, the want to gain
fame, they want to appropriate, as a
resull of victory and risk, as many
privileges as possible, which shall
crown their success In arms. This is
only human nature. ... It is easy to
Imagine bow boastful and aggressive
jour soldiers were after the Husso Japanese war. By what they did there
after the war we have lost not only
the good will of these Chinese, but
also won the criticism of the Europeans and Americans. It cannot, be
denied that such conduct disturbs the
Bmooth  working of diplomacy."
Writing upon Chinese diplomacy th"
Count  said. "It   is  often   treacherous.
, so we were prepared to heat the Chinese at their own gam". We could not
say oti every occasion. 'Ves, yes. we
lairee' to whatever the Chinese asked
Inferior to the Chinese.
''As  China  is tiie ancient sourc of
;one cf the greatest civilizations in the
.world." he moralizes, "one must recognize lhat civilized Institutions and
customs are already Iher.'. On th" oth'
er hand, the Japanese have Imported
'tiie civilization of the west only during  tec-at  years  and  have  ttmi fa ted
It, and thoy may thing when they
come to China and associate with the
Chinese that they are really In no way
inferior lo lhe hitt, r, llut if the Japanese will only strip off their gold
braid, they will find that they have
only left that which they Imported originally from China, and consequently it Is clear thai ttfry are behind the
Chinese in every point of civilization.
"Those Chinese who arc In tlio upper strata of society, though differently educated than us, are all very well
educated, They are not bumptious or
conceited as ihe Japanese are. hut
they are very learned and leisurely,
and skillful In the use of diplomatic
language. Ilesldes, their standard of
living is much higher than that of tin*
Li Hung Chang's Simple Life.
"When I went lu call on 1.1 Hung
Chang," writes Count llayashl. "1 was
slum n Into a sort of rest room, which
was not very spacious, the bed being
rather coarse and cheap, similar to
beds used In soldiers' barracks. The
floors were hare, there being no rugs,
nnd the chairs were uf hard wood in
plain western Style. I.I Hung Chang
when 1 entered was silting on a rubber air cushion. He arose and off' nil
nie Ihe cushion, hut I said: 'I am a
young man and do not need It. Vou
are an old man, so do not mind mc
ConUnue to sit on It as ynu m m doing When 1 entered' 'I have heen rery
ill,' he said, 'and cannot very well sit.
,1 pleaBB excuse me,' and resum d tin*
i ushlon."
The poor pay of 111 ' Chinese offi
rial and liis resort lo bribery to sup-
plemenl liis income was noted hy tbe
i !..-��� rv.int count. Th.se official salaries; he tells us. were fixed oenturei
ago, and continued without change
"As Ihey could not he altered tlle officials were comp lied to get extra
revenue from somewhere else. The
result wa3 that th" l'ekln officials
wouid take tribute money from the
provincial officials, and lhe provincial
Officials    would    take    tribute money
from the people. This system event
ually came to bc recognised as a part
of lhe system of salaries. Such a
system is. indeed, a vary lad one. but
it cannot necessarily bs called one
of bribery.
$50 Pinned to Visiting Card.
"We often hear people say that in
o:der to meet an official in China, on"
his to attach a five-dollar note to one's
visiting card. Otherwise the servants
of the house would not usher one in.
When 1 was in Pekin I heard that In
order to meet a prince of the blood or
a high official a Chinese would have
to attach a fifty-dollar note to his visiting card, hut even thess cases cannot he called bribes. It would be more
correct I.) call them a system of commission which was general thoughout
th" country.
"The officials of China are always
trying to save the face of the nation
hy any means. This saving of the face
it tiie first consideration of Chinese
officials In any diplomatic dealings In
which ihey may be engaged If Hi"
Chinese go' ernm nl should yield only

"The   i BSence   of   China's    :    *.
policy   is   playing     ofl     one     power
againat another."
Concluding tics    sectioiMttbf count
writes: "In dealing with China wi
want to take plent] or time, to regs
all the provincial and local problems
rf that country, to insist ii[sin our
claims, and to explain patiently and
steadily tho reasons for llie position
we take up. We '-'-ould be ready '

Portland. Ore.. Dec. 11. fright,
presumably from being held np or ae-
COSted, caused the death of Mrs. It
J. Princ3, wife of ll. J. I'rlnce, a merchant, last night.
Mrs. Prince rushed Into the Elton
Court where she lived and fell prostrate in tho doorway. No Intelligible
explanation of h"r fright could be obtained. aB she died whli" trying vainly to tell her husband what had hap
pened. The coroner holds the theory
that fright caused heart failure. Mrs.
Prince waa C5 years old.
President Wilson of the United States has such a bad
cold he has been forced to cancel his engagements for the
next day or so. It's good betting that Woodrow was
tickled to death to get a chance to stick around the White
House fireplace for one evening in his carpet slippers.

Love of ths Picturesque Makes Medici

Dear Elsa���Ever since every woman
lias been displaying ber throat swan
like nml otherwise. 1 have been swathed In IiIkIi collars unfashionable anil
uncomfortable, particularly during the
hot weather, I couldn't tempt the
funny num who loves to diseant plc-
torially upon feminine "salt cellars" to
bave one more Insane Joke at my expense-hence my martyrdom in Hu
Just nml good cause of appearances.
Well, my dear. I'm happy now nnd
throat free. Now don't misinterpret
this remark ns Dick did. and look for
my heud on the couch, but be sensible
and listen to what I've got to sny on
the subject.
To start out in real, advertising
fashion. ������Nobody need have 11 scraggy
neck if they will tnke the trouble."
What I say Is. thnt I leave subdued
my salt cellars nnd my scraggy neck
is n thing of the near past. You know
thnt I am nothing, but "a rn�� anil a
bone and n hunk of hair." and never
COtlld wear n decollete frock with any
degree of becomingness.
Now nil my friends In slulit envy my

An acquaintance who has studied
physical culture In Sweden taught mc
three head nml neck exercises which
have hnd sm-b good results that 1 feel
it would be the height of selfishness
imt to share with you who nre of the
lean kind too.
When doing the exercises the neck
should be quite bare. Tbe best place
Is to do tbem In one's kimono. tii-��*lit
and morning, ami to undo one's blunsi*
at the throat during the duy.
Now for tbe exercises;
First, stand erect, look straight It
front of yoa, then, keeping tiie boilj
quite still, let tbe chin sink slowly till
It reaches the chest. Raise the chli
nud move the head luifkw'iird as fat
as It will go without strain. Repeal
these movements from live to ten
times. The great thing to remembei
Is that all bead and neck exercise!
must be done slowly nnd evenly
Quick. Jerky movements ure useless
and dangerous.
Becond, raise the chin, hold your hen-*,
rather in tbe position of a hen drink
lng and then turn the bead, lirst tc
the right as far ns It will *sn. then tc
tbe left.    Do this live or ten times.
Third, hold the head quite straiglil
nnd take a series of short, quie1*-
breatbs. puffing out the base of tbt
throat with each breath. In dddltiot
to these exercises you cun If yuu likt
massage tbe neck thoroughly with
lieiizonnted bird every night: it makefile skin smooth and while, 1 havt
While I'm prating of myself I know.

Well, here's the reason: they're tre
mendoiisly hard to find, for you musl
know that these picturesque neck nd
ilenda are having 11 wonderful popu
larity this season and it's almost im
possible to get a Medici at a reasonable
price at this late day. The dressmak

for a well shaped Medici collar of fine
