Brussels, Aug. 13.���The German
troops in Belgian Luxemburg are said

' reported to have dropped unconscious
owing to their nrivations. In some of
the dead officers' pockets raw potatoes were found while the soldiers

BALKING THE VULTURES.
-��� General satisfaction follows the announcement from
Ottawa that when the special session of parliament meets
this month measures will be taken to prevent an unwarranted forcing up of food stuff prices throughout the
Dominion on account of the war.
There are those in every land whose eagerness for
gain outstrips their patriotism, who would wring the dollars from a loyal people to fatten their own pocketbooks.
While it is to be expected that in some lines there will
be a considerable rise in quotations, there is also the danger that, if left unrestrained, some dealers would take advantage of the war scare to play on the fear of their customers and overcharge.
Some instances of this kind already have been report

WAR ENCYCLOPEDIA
VALCARTIER���The point at which the Canadian
troops enlisted for active service abroad will mobilize, is
about thirteen miles northwest of the city of Quebec. At
this place there is considerable level ground extending in
all directions and, on account of the topography of the
country lending itself to just such a purpose for which
it soon is to be used, it was taken over by the Dominion
government as military territory.
NOVIBAZAR���This province of southern Bosnia,
with its capital of the same name, formerly belonged to
Turkey in Europe, but in 1908 was taken over by Austria
with the remainder of Bosnia and Herzogovinia. It always has been intensely Serb in its sympathies and bitterly opposed to Austrian domination. In fact this feeling spreads generally throughout the whole of the territories mentioned above and, banking on it, the Servians
now are planning their invasion of Austria, believing that

the Franco-Prussian war, during which they came to
be known by the French as the "Ravens of the Rhine."
They are armed with lances, pistols and carbines and generally wear brass helmets topped with a mortar-board
finish, similar to some British lancer regiments, and a
horsehair decoration. They are supposed to be capable
of exceedingly rapid marches and during the Franco-
Prussian war earned a reputation for bravery and cruelty
combined that made them generally feared. The Uhlan,
as a type of soldier, first appeared in Turkish armies.
Later the Poles adopted them and still later the Germans.

For the Home.
Every week in the year something is needed for
the home, something to eat or to drink, some new
furniture or new clothes. The list is endless and
the worry of the housewife is almost as endless,
unless she uses intelligence and system in her
purchases.
The advertising columns ate intended for such
harassed housekeepers.. They contain real news
that will help to ease her burden and settle her
uncertainties. Certainly the advertisers expect
to make money. Are they not entitled to it if they
make life more comfortable for thousands?
Read the advertisements, with discrimination
and intelligence. They will solve many a vexed
question.

not precisely known, but are declared
to comprise only a few dead and many
wounded.
Tbe newspaper adds that the German troops re-formed after being repulsed and that firing began again at
5 o'clock this morning when fresh Belgian troops were sent to tbe front In
support of their comrades who hsd
fought throughout yesterday. The

Brussels, via l-ondon, Aug. 13.���
When a patrol of soldiers first signalled the approach of the Germans
yesterday at Haslen the Belgians
manned the trenches and a hot fire
greeted the Germans. The German
guns were then brought into action
and swept! the trenches with such a
deadly fire that the Belgians were
obliged to fall back on the town of
Haslen.
Reinforcements were quickly sent
up, however, and the Germans, In spite
of the numerical superiority, were repulsed, suffering severely.

Method of Unloading Sand From the
Dredge Causes Spectators to
Gather on  Waterfront.
Kor the first time since the Fruhling commenced operations on the river the people of New Westminster
are able to see the boat in action,
crowds lining the waterfront several
times each day as the government
dredge lines up against the wharf
with a cargo of sand which Is pumped out along the new wharf of the
city for filling in purposes.
Since the boat started at the beginning of the  week  this is  practically
the  first time  also that  government
officials have  been  unable to get  a
correct idea  as to how    her    pumps
work.    Hitherto,  while  operating off
the  sandbeads.  the dredge  has been
loaded  with  sand,  gone  out  to deep
water and there dumped the silt. The
patented hoppers allow such a process
to  be made  inside of three  minutes
without   tbe   necessity   of   using  the
pumps, such as are being worked on
the waterfront.
Yesterday  the  bi��  boat  got  ahead
of the  gang  employed on  the  wharf
and several short relays occurred until the the pipes leading to the places
to   be  filled   were   shifted.     Many  of
the   onlookers   were   of   the   opinion
that the water and sand pumped out
over  the  wharf  Ig brought  up  river \
by   the  boat.    This,  however,  is  In- |
correct, for the water to be seen rushing out of  the pipe along  with  the
sand is pumped out of the river at
the  wharf in order to  mix  with  the
dry sand and thus enable the pumps
to operate.

Built in German shipyards under

used on the Kiel canal, was bought (

was afterwards purchased by tbe Ca- I
nadian government and brought to
the Pacific coast via the Suez canal
and ihe Orient. Many of the fittings
still bear German names, although
continual overhauling has displaced
many of these name plates.

Advertising succeeds when what is advertised
deserves to succeed, and attractive advertising cannot succeed otherwise. To be afraid to advertise is
almost a confession that what one really fears is the
quality of the goods or else the management of the
store or business, as this alone can endanger the
money invested in publicity.
Compared with the difficulty of buying for the
retail trade, the difficulty of advertising the goods
thus bought, so as to sell them, is trifling. The grocer, the druggist, the men's furnisher and the general
dealer have to estimate, from their own observation
and intuition, what the people of their town are likely
to buy if it is shown���a matter requiring considerable skill. A mistake will land them with goods for
which there is no market, in some cases with goods
that will go out of fashion if they do not move them
within a limited period.
There is room for all sorts of miscalculations.
The quality may be wrong, prices may be too high,
the buyer may not fit the fancy of the prospective
customers.   Every dealer has to meet and combat
these dangers.   Greater business ability, judgment
and courage are required for this than for merely
letting the public know what goods are on offer.
The retail advertising problem is two-sided.   A
retailer wants to increase his trade with his existing
customers and he also wants to make new customers.
Thoughtful and well-planned advertising will accomplish both ends.   With a good article or a good store
to advertise there is no reason at all why operations
on quite a small scale should not be promptly profitable, j* ______
It is a great mistake to think that success can
only be won with a large initial outlay. No beginner
would be justified in ordering full page or half page
advertisements, but this is not a serious handicap.
A $200 advertisement may leave no more profit by
the time it is paid for than a $5 advertisement,
though it will sell more goods.
If a store is well managed the new trade brought
by every advertisement will more or less be permanent. The work is naturally half done when the people are brought to the counter, but they must be
so treated when they come there that they will come
again and keep coming.

the result of Wednesday night's take

the problem of whether American

Though the pr; .-idem has nol reached a final decision, he Is strongly opposed to the idea. The que.-tinn arose

of such a loan would be regarded as
a violation of neutrality. Secretary

Shut-out.
Although the scorer was accused ot
Juggling the tally sheet last night's
game between Tommy Walsh's band
of militiamen and a bunch of old timers ended in correct fashion, nine all.
It was some contest. Fielding stunts
were pulled off when least expected,
home runs were stretched out from
singles, various runners kept crossing
the pan, and still <-ach inning was tied.
It was remarkable���the form displayed
by the scorer.
With Lie old timers were Ernie Sin
Clair, the former first sucker for the
P.almorals; Herb Ryall, who for years
held down second sack for a New
Westminster team; Fred Lynch, whose
field of sports run anywhere from lacrosse, hockey and bowling to baseball; Mayor Cray, a former lacrosse
star, who last night hurled over nine
balls in succession, and Hutchinson,
whose field of operations this summer
lias been manager of the Klectrics and
nagging the umpire.
Snap Stewart of Fraser .Mills risked
his life handling the indicator. Like
the scon- sheet and fielding stunts,
one never knew when Snap was going
to call a strike or a ball, but he got
away wltb il even though he did
threaten K:i-d Lynch with a *', fine
fer throwing down the ball in disgust
after what looked to be an e-asv out
of fthlrd.
About the only consolation Tommy
Walsh had wa.s the fact of his breaking the- hoodoo of losing six games in
succession. Oscar Neilson was held
in reserve by the old timers and went
into the box in the fourth. Oscar was
tapped for two home runs. With the
price of paper soaring high on account
of the war, the scorer was unah

TO DENNY & ROSS
School  Board   Places Order for High
School Cha'rs With Local Firm
Where it Belongs
Rescinding its former motion made
last  month,  the  school   board  at  its
held last
night awarded contract for chairs for
the high schexjl auditorium to Denny
.i Ross. The local firm is now in
communication with the furniture factory in Herlin, Ont., and should receive a reply sometime today statin .,
whether the chairs can be delivered I
in the time specified,   ,
The switch came as a result of the '
school  board  being unable  to secure
the  chairs   at   an   earlier   date   than
that  promised   by   Denny  A.   Ro3s in
the first instance.
ln a communication to the board
last night the local firm stated that
the order for the chairs was originally placed in Vancouver, but on account of the business depression the
plant was compelled to    shut    down.

umbia, aad duplicates   thereof    have
the absolute rule or the kaiser. Since
tho dismissal of Bismarck in 1S!��0
there has never been a question as to
"who is Germany."
It is not the claim of any writer of
discretion that Wilhelm alone lias
made Germany what it has become
in twenty-five years. It would be equally foolisli to believe that Germany
would have forged ahead without such
a leader as the kaiser. Wilhelm II.
and his time, so far as the weirare of
Germany is concerned, nre felioltiously
matched. Close students of German
affairs rind a sound worth to Germany in what other nations have e-rit-
Iclzed in the character of the kaiser.
Her Hope of Empire.
In the middle ages began Germany's hope of empire. T'.ie Teutonic
races in federation dreamed or expansion and met disaster so overwhelming that even a century ago the
German state was dissolved into
Bemi-independent provinces. Germany,
the territory now banded as an empire, became the battle ground of Europe, the soldier-slave market fori
every ambitious monarch.
During   the   sixteenth,   seventeenth
and  eighteenth   ce-nturies.  while    her
neighbors    were    opening    the    new
Worlds across the sea, Germany, with-
jout national entity, became provincial,'
narrow, without initiative, the subject!
of  universal harassment. ,
When  the  family or Hohenzollern I
or Prussia, whose greatest trait is the1
acquisition of land, began the rehabll-l
itation of that kingdom, and laid  the
foundations for the great empire, the
I new world had been divided between
j Germany's     neighbors.     It     remained!
tor the kaiser's grandfather, the first
Wilhelm,   with   the   aid   of   Bismarck,
I to establish the empire. To his grand-1
.son  fell  the even  more difficult  task |
of developing that  empire to a  lirst
j and Importance, to a weekly soiree of
frugal character where even the em
peror serves himself.
By an elaborate press clipping and |
reading   bureau   the   kaiser   contrives
to  read  everything  of  importance   in
all  the German  newspapers.    Ile  has
lost a  former  interest  in  fiction  anel
the  drama,  but .delights  in  scientific
works when he reads for pleasure ami
pront,    It is his ambition and delight
to master technicalities of many problems which concern his people, wlietb
er  they   be  wireless   telegraphy,   air
craft, reciprocating and turbine steam
engines   or   industrial     insurance.   A
stickler for military discipline, an  Inheritance   from   Hohenzollern    ancestors, the kaiser has often  pioved hu-
manely   tolerant   of  errors   when   the
circumstances are extenuating and his
soldiers have many anecdotes or him.
One brief statement selected at ran
dom rrom a muss of Information should
give an itic-a or the tremendous business   or   being   emperor  Of  Germany.
The   kaiser   has   the   largest   military
wardrobe in tbe world, presided over
by twelve valets, who work by a system  which    permits    the    numerous
ela.il>��� changes or wardrobe necessary
, to   business   of   state.     Though   an
American   may  regard   such   detail  of |
living   as   futile1,   adopting   the   continental point or view, it i.s or vital Importance that the kaiser's sartorial ap-
, pearance at every moment or his bus-
1 iness    days be raultless. Since- tnat is
lone detail or the business of being emperor  it is easy to  imagine  how  full
of work are the working davs of Wilhelm 11.
Understanding Germany's geographical position on tbe continent and Unsocial  and  economic  problems of the
j empire, it is not so difficult to understand   that    In   this   leader,   who   be-
I lieves himself divinely appointed. Ger-
I many  has tbe  type  of emperor ahso-
I lutely essential  to her well  being  as
! a  nation.    Tin-  next   few  months  will
see   him   put   to  the  greatest   test   of
the  greatest crisis of German  history.

"It is keeping everlastingly at it���the quiet, continuous brand of publicity that worries its way through to
success in the long run and it is difficult to find any
justification for breaking the continuity of advertising
during hot weather.
"Clothes have to be worn and the necessaries of life
provided for, and almost every article with the exception
of purely seasonable goods is in equal demand in the summer as in the winter.
"Then, again, in the summer people do not work so
hard���there is more leisure time, and just because they
have more time for reading it is logical to state that they
have more time for reading advertising.
"To the modern housewife any respite from the thraldom of stuffy stores and glaring pavements is welcome.
She reads the advertising columns of the daily paper, and
makes it her shopping guide, especially in the summer-
missing at this time is losing momentum which will take
considerable time and expense to regain at a later date."
