Vikings of Canada
It will be interesting to those
who are eligable and have not
yet had the opportunity, or who
have not yet realized their obliga-
lion to their country, to hear that
the "Vikings of Canada" are in
need of men. Sergt-Major J. H.
Small, whose office is at 70 Cordova Street, Vancouver, paid Lillooet a visit this week in an endeavour to obtain recruits. He
brought with him about 100 views
which he exhibited in the Santini
Hall. The pictures were of a
patriotic tiature and portrayed
some very remarkable scenes on
the,far stretched battle line and
brought home to quite a number
of the audience, in a more realistic way than ever before, the conditions which' our brave boys at
the front are facing.
During the evening, and whilst
the portrait of the Late Lord
Kitchener was being portrayed on
the canvas, Mr. J. S. Bell gave
a short but stirring speech. He
spake as from the "deep blue
sea," reminding those present of
the great work and appeal of
K of,K (as "Kitchener" was often called), to MEN to do their
duty in this, their country's hour
of need.
Mr. Small will be glad to hear
from any men desiring information concerning the "Vikings of
Provincial Seed Fairs
THE   HEAD   OF OUR   MILITIA I      Naval Appointments
In the November number of
the Agricultural Journal, issued
by the Department of Agriculture, Victoria, Mr. H.O. English,
Chief Soil and Crop Instructor,
pointed out that in British Columbia the farmers imported
thousands of dollars'., worth of
seed every year.
"Farmers do not seem to realize as yet", writes Mr. English,
"that they are losing money
each year they plant imported
seed in preference to home-grown
acclimatized seed. Consequently
the demand for home-grown seed
is small and seed merchants do
not trouble to stock it.
"Another reason for the lack
of demand for home-grown seed
is that few farmers know just
who the seed-growers are in this
Province. It seems that those
who have been growing seed in
the past have been doing so on a
small scale, only such as would
not warrant extensive advertising. Thus, while some farmers
might have wished to secure this
acclimatized seed, they did not
know which way to turn to secure same.
"The third and probably the
most important reason why so
much seed is imported annually
is that there have not been, and
are not even at this time, a sufficiently large number of growers
of high-class seed within the
Province to satisfy the demand
for first-class seeds"
The Provincial Seed Fairs will
be held at Armstrong and New
Westminster this year, the fair at
Armstrong on December 7th and
8th and at New Westminster on
December 14th and 15th. All
who can should attend one of
these fairs and see for themselves
just what this Province can do in
the way of producing seed which
up to the present has been purchased to a great extent in Eastern Canada and the United
F. H. Kinder, of Canyon View,
is a visitor to town.
The inevitable resignation of
Sir Sam Hughes as Minister of
Militia having taken place, it was
necessary for Mr. Borden to
choose a successor. In this task,
he seems to have endeavored to
secure an appoint! e who would at
least be free from the weakness
for incautious speech which has
militated against the usefulness
of the retiring holder of the port
In this respect no greater contrast could be found that that existing between General Hughes
and the parliamentarian who has
bee selected to succeed him. Mr.
A. E. Kemp, who is now our
Minister of Militia, is not very
loquacious. He is one of those
who does not believe in talking
when there is nothing to say. As
a successful manufacturer, and
the proprietor of a large business,
he has a stake in the country.
As a born Canadian, he is as patriotic  as  the more declamatory
General Hughes, while as a man
accustomed to large financial and
commercial concerns, he has a
variety of experience to which
the retiring Minister can not lay
claim. Hon. Albert Edward
Kemp was born in 1858, and
therefore is now 58 years of age
which may be said to be his
elderly prime. He is five years
younger than Sir Sam, and his
natural force is not abated. The
prospect is that he will bring to
his new work the same discretion and energy that have distinguished his business career.
Accustomed to the management
of employees he will know how
to get the best work out of his
staff or he will know the reason
why. Already a rich man, he
will not be subject to those temptations which come to impecunious politicians. His appointment
will meet with the approval of
most citizens of judgment and

"Milk Testing and Dairy Records" is the title of a new bulletin which will shortly be issued
by the Department of Agriculture at Victoria. This bulletin
has been prepared by T. A. F.
Wiancko, Provincial Dairy Instructor, and deals with the methods of testing milk and the
advantages to be gained therefrom. In addition to this, Mr.
Wiancko has gone very fully into
the matter of keeping dairy records and has clearly demonstrated that it is to the great advantage of the dairy farmer to keep
close track of what each cow in
his herd is doing in the way of
butter fat and milk production.
This new bulletin is well illustrated, and in addition has copies
of the various forms used in
keeping an accurate record of
each cow's performance.
Anyone wishing a copy of this
bulletin should write to the Publications Branch, Department of
Agriculture, Vicaoria, and ask
for Bulletin 72, Milk Testing and
Dairy Records.
The West Yale Review, published at Hope, said farewell to
its subscribers last week, and

A cheque was received this
week from W. Mitchell, Secretary
of the Shuswap & Lillooet Fruit-
land Ltd., who own the 15-Mile
Ranch, Ashcroft Road. This is
the first donation received from
a non-resident property owner.
It will be interesting to note who
will be the next. The amount of
the cheque is $25 and is for the
Patriotic Fund.
The largest dam in Europe has
just been completed in Spain. It
is* built across the chasm through
which the Noguera Pallaresa
River flowed, and is situated near
the old fortified town of Talarn.
Abutting on almost perpendicular cliffs, the dam is constructed
of; concrete and measures 330
feet in height and 700 feet in
length. It forms an artificial
lake fifteen miles long and nearly four miles wide. Its object
is twofold—production of electric
power and for irrigating. The
cement used in the construction
of the dam was made on the spot
from limestone and marl found
within a short distance and transported by a temporary railroad.

The state of Canada's trade in
timber since the war is a matter
of the greatest importance to
our citizens. The figures for the

The waste from breakage in the
quarrying, sawing into slabs,
manufacturing, and transportation is so great as to render success in the industry a matter of
skillful manipulation. The value
of the stone is in large measure
proportionate to the work done
upon it. In the rough it is valued at $2 or less a ton, but when
sawed into slabs its value is increased to about $15, and when
made into laundry tubs it may
attain a value of about $30 a

that it would have serious
effects on life underwriters.
The officers of the overseas
force generally and large
numbers of the men were of
the insuring class. Some of
the companies required an
extra payment of $50 for
each thousand dollars of insurance carried by men engaged in active military service. Some required extra
premium varying in amount,
and in the event of their not
being paid, proposed to reduce the amount of the policy. Some companies in the
early days of the war accepted war risks. The majority
now decline them. The a-
mount of insurance for Canadian insurers terminated by
death, maturity or expiry
during 1915 was $24,268,000.
This was $3,662,500 more
than the figure of 1914, and
was in excess of the rate of
increase in other branches of
the business.

A recent bulletin of the
laboratory of the Department
of Inland Revenue deals with
the examination of samples
of ground coffee obtained
throughout Canada. The
facts noted are interesting
to all who occasionally enjoy
the beverage that is made
from the coffee berry, as exhibiting the action of Canadian legislation against any
attempt at adulterating our
articles of food. Next to
spices, cpffee seems to offer
the greatest temptation to
the dealer who would add
something to his profit by
fooling his customer. It may
b e incidentally remarked
that such a policy is "penny
wise and pound foolish."
Chicory, ground peas,
burned grain, and even rotten wood have all been found
in large percentage in the
' 'Ashcroft potatoes" are
quoted at $35 per ton on
Wholesale Row, Vancouver.
These same "Ashcrofts"
were purchased from the
growers at nrices ranging
from $18 to $20 f. o. b. Ashcroft or Merritt. What do
you suppose the consumer is
paying? A glance at the retail market of Vancouver reveals quotations ranging
from $1.75 to $2 per sack.
In other words, the price of
spuds has doubled since being loaded aboard cars in
Merritt and Ashcroft and
sent to the coast. Who
makes the profit? The commission men, of course. Is
it any wonder that the high
cost of living keeps on soaring? One hundred per cent,
is too much profit for the
men between the producer
and the ultimate consumer
to make and if the government is in real earnest about
ils ir'usligstic into the
causes for high prices for the
necessities of life, it might
find room for investigation

MONTREAL was the birthplace of
tbe Patriotic Fund. Montreal
made the record of over $1,613.-
000 collected in the six days whirlwind
campaign, September, 1914, and the
irganization under which tbe Montreal
Branch distributes relief Is considered
a model of effective t.nd economical
Montreal and the Island of Montreal
nave keen divided into .twenty-seven
districts, the interests of whirl, are
looked after by fifty-six ladies acting
as Ward Heads, under the supervision
of Miss Helen Reid. These are assisted by about six hundred lady visitors
who . undertake to make periodical
visits to the families of soldiers at the
front. Investigate and report on cases
where relief is requested, and generally net as friends to those who might
otherwise be friendless. Although
there are certain Government allowances, these are often found to be Insufficient tor large families, and at
times, especially ln tbe case of Illness,
Immediate relief has to be given. The
mothers are given expert advice on
hygiene and the care Of infants, ami
encouraged to keep their children rcgu
larly at church and school (twenty
prises' are given for the best school
reports.), are taught principles of thrift
and given free legal advice. The slogans under which tbe lady visitors
work are such as "p-ovtde Opportunity
not Charity—and V a friend," "Guard
the  Fund—do  not  patronize -do   nut
promise" and "Your service is personal, patriotic and civic. Let it be
kindly, loyal and efficient."
The French speaking families are
cared tor by French speaking ladies,
each ward having a French-Canadian,
as well as an English-Canadian head.
During the summer months lectures
have been given ln the both languages
on hygiene and domestic economy, aud
the Parish Priests, tbe Ward Alderman, Ministers and Teachers are encouraged to take an interest ln cases
In their district or parish. There is a
Patriotic Burial Fund and Cemeterv
Lots, a storage for furniture, and baoy
outfits and clothing for special cases
Over 300 doctors give their services
without charge.
A wonderful system of cart* indexing
and filing enables the Relief Committee to handle all cases with promptness and efficiency. There a--e between
forty to seventy-five advices each day
of changes ln address, desertion, births
and deaths, illnesses or discharges In
one single month 1,500 removals have
been notified. The average daily attendance Is about 300 mothers. Great
care has to be taken that the Fund is
economically spent and that no duplicate or unnecessary payments should
be made, and this Is only acssible
when the office organization is businesslike.   The filing room alone occu
pies the time of three ladles So
efficient, however, has been the Montreal administration, that the Boston
Charity Organization Society has asked for a report and It Is likely that the
Montreal methods will he adopted In

Army Service Corps Want Recruits
An Opportunity for Which Many Eligibles
Have Long Been Waiting
In reviewing the recruiting returns of
the different provinces of the Dominion,
one is profoundly impressed by the splendid response made by the manhood of
British Columbia in the time of the Empire's need.
This record is indeed one to be proud
of, but there are still a very large number
of eligible men in the Provinee who for
various reasons have been prevented from
doing their duty, and it is to these that
the Officer Commanding No. 19 Company
Canadian Army Service Corps
with Headquarthrs at 1117 Seaton Street,
Vancouver, B.C. issues this appeal.
Instructions   have  just been received
from Headquarters to enlist men of the
following trades and occupations for overseas service with the above corps.
Horse Transport Drivers
Supply Clerks
Mechanical Transport Drivers
Bakers Butchers Farriers
Wheelers      Blacksmiths    Saddlers
Electricians Fitters & Turners
The advantage of a man being able to
work at the occupation he works at in
civil life will be apparent.
The men as recruited will be given a
little preliminary training here and sent
forward in drafts.
Any further information in this connection will be gladly furnished on application to the above address (1117 Seaton
Street, Vancouver).
The systematic raiding of the
able-bodied population of poor
stricken Belgium, and the driving of thousands—men. womefi
and children—into virtual slavery
in a foreign enemy land is the
most horrible crime of the already
long long list perpetrated by the
savage Hun. It is a crime more
violent than the invasion, more
revolting than the wanton destruction of cities, more gastly
than the masacres of civilians. It
is the one great crime that every
civilized nation in the world long
ago placed the ban upon. It is
today unthinkable, yet it is the
crime Germany is committing.
Thousands upon thousands of
defenseless Belgians, who are at
the mercy of the enemy hordes
that have overrun their country,
are today being driven like cattle
from their own country to become
the slaves of Prussian savagery.
What an awful thing it is to
think of what will happen to them
if any refuse to do the bidding of
their captors! If these "slaves"
protest, they will doubtless be
chained to the whipping post and
flogged, as was the slave of the
victorious tribes of darkest Afri-

ca before Great Britain and
France put a stop to the dreadful
custom; as was the black man in
the south before Abraham Lincoln
issued the Emancipation Proclamation!
If the nations of the world
have needed heretofore a proof
of Germany's intention in this
war, that proof has been furnished by the slave raids in Belgium
and Flanders. Black indeed will
be the pages of German history
as they relate to this terrible war
—Merritt Herald.
Germany's great object in this
war was to get a big, firm hold
on the Near East. Constantinople was to be an "adjunct" of
Berlin, along with Vienna and
Sofia, and perhaps Bucharest and
Athens. That grip is gradually
being loosened, though Germany
is clutthing at the Balkans for
dear life.
