Sir Edward Grey who is becoming  well  known as the  poace  maker  of  politically, religiously related to Rus  was in fact an express violation ot  the agreement made in the Great  Congress of Berlin, after the, Russo  Turkish war. It not merely increased the territory of a member of the  Triple'Aliance but it extinguished the  hope  of a little Slav state  racially,  Europe a title uilways given to the  lamented King Edward, who did  more during his lifetime to get on  favorable terms with the other nations of Europe than any other- man  in public life, took advantage of tho  first opportunity to try and assemble  a conference of the concert "of Europe  including all of the great powors in  an effort to try and keep the enemies  from each others throats. But this  time it has seemed unavailing, for  while Russia, France, Italy, Spain  and Great Britain and Servia itself  were willing, Ausria refused and Ger  many, while expressing through the  Kaiser and their foreign ambassadors their deep anxiety for peace  regretted that they were unable to  offer advice along these lines to  their'ally and neighborly Austria-  Hungary.  Russia, through the Czar, has expressed her deepest wishes for peace  settlement., A war between Austria  and Servia themselves would have no  particular interest to us of the British Empire, except from a moral  standpoint, or from a financial or sen  sational viewpoint. But Europe is  ��������� and has been sitting over a powder  chest for years and any war however  small is liable to-develop and embroil  'all the 'big nations.  " There are in Europe at the present  time two  big camps,  one known as  the Triple-Alliance,  embracing Austria -Hungary, .Germany   and    Italy,  assisted by some of the smaller and  less  important  states,  while  on  the  .other hand is the Dual Alliance be-  ' tween France and Russia, while Spain  *   Greece and a few other smaller states  would in the event of dire necessity  take sides with them    against    the  . ��������� Triple Alliance.      Great Britain    is  not In Alliance as far as is known  withany nation except Japan, .but is  'one   of  the most  powerfu  members  of what Is known as the Triple Entente, comprising Russia, France and  Great  Britain.    This  entente  is  not  an alliance, but merely a strong cordial agreement to help each other in  ��������� a war of defence against any other  nation or combination of nations who  might  unjustly  attack   them Of  course if either France or Russia  were to start what anight be termed  a war of aggression they could not  call for the assistance of Great Britain but events might occur such as  numerous and heavy defeats of Russia and France by the Triple Alliance  and their allies which would compel  Great Britain in order to protect her  own vital. interests .to step in and  help France and Russia.'  , -,������This, of course, British statesmen  will try their best to avoid, for it is  -no'joke when we claim that the British Empire with all her prestige, her  wealth, her colonial possessions and  her naval supremacy, is the greatest  factor for peace today. War is most  repugnant" to'- the Anglo-Saxon gener-  erally, arid great efforts will undoubt  ��������� edly be "made by Sir Edward Grey  the British Foreign Secretary, to keep  ' from taking decisive action in the  present war, and the present hesitancy shows.that Great Britain is attempting to keep peace.  At the present time of writing the  mother country has taken no decisive  action in the fight,, but should Germany attempt to bring her fleet out  of the Baltic to atack either France  on the north or Belgium, there would  be the sound of British guns, and also with good effect.  WHAT LED  UP TO THE  PRESENT CRISIS  This is the Third Time Two Groups  Have Faced One Another  Threateningly  (From New York Sun)  For the third time in the last five  years the two gr.eat groups of European powers, the Triple Alliance and  the Triple Entente, stand face to  face with tho obvious possibility that  war may result from the clash of  rival purposes Today Russia, France  sia.  At the critical moment in 1009 Ger,  many appeared "in shining amour"  declared for Austrian purposes and  threw her sword into the balance,  Russia and her allies were unready  for war and were compelled to accept  the crushing and humiliating defeat  ���������but tho consequences .of the defeat  were manifold Froni that hour be  gan Russian intriguing in the Balkans to promote that unity which was  presently to  destroy Turkey,'  In 1911, when Germany sent her  warship to Agadir, the two groups  came into collision again. Iu 19.fi  Germany and Russia threatened; in  1911 she menaced France, demanding as the price of recognition of a  French protectorate in Morocco huge  territorial grants for herself But  this time fhe Trlnle Entente was less  complaint. Brier h r.?ets assembled.  Russian ramies were: mobilized, and  Unalyy f-loyd George made the memorable speech winch amounted ' to a  v>urning to Germany that Fngluud  stood with France-  Then it was Germany's turn to  yield, as it had been Russia's in  ���������1909 Some territorial gain she did  make in the swamps of the Ubanghi  but Morocco ��������� became French. German prestige was terribly shaken and  the pasisonate resentment of the Ger  man' people has found expression ever  since in the press and in the utterances of many of her pubic men.  >The defeat of the Triple Alliance  in Morocco was quickly followed by  disasters more serious Italy went to  Tripoli and in making war against  Turkey attacked a power regarded in  Germany as an' ally, whose army,  German trained, was confidently ex  pected to stand with the Triple Alliance on the great day of European  conflict.  Defeated by Italy, Turkey was next  compeled to face the alliance of  the Balkan states, whose1 union was  the direct product of Russian diplom  acy With the victories of Lule Bar-  gas.Ku-manovo and Jenidje-Vardar,  Turkish power in Europe collapsed  and the small Balkan states, increas  ed by great territorial gain, stood on  Austrian's southern frontier barring  her road ��������� to the /Egean, and in the  case of Servia threatening to play the  role on the Danube that Sardinia had  played on the Po and unite the South  ern Slavs as Sardinia united Italy.  To prevent this Austria resorted to  desperate tactics. Like Germany she  had expected Turkish victory and the  Osmanli ruin found her unprepeared  Toward Servia she adopted bullying  tactics. To break up the Balkan alliance, which was in fact a Russian  creation, and an adjunct of the Triple  Entente, she promoted the dissension  among the Balkan allies ��������� which resulted in the second Avar.  But gain Austria backed the wrong  horse. Not only was Bulgaria defeated and Servia still further increas  ed in territory and in prestige, but  Austrian support of Bulgaria had alienated Roumania, hitherto the stead  fast friend of the Triple Alliance, and  precisely as the Servians began to  dream of regaining Bosnia and Herze  govuia Roumania cast envious eyes  on the millions of Roumanians in  Hungary.  Meantime as the situation of Austria had been compromised abroad, it  was weakened at home. Half the  population oi: the dual Monarchy is  Slav, but the ruling races are German and Magyar. Austrian bullying  of Servia provoked protest, roit, disorder at home. Jn Bohemia, Croatia  Galacia Slav-populations protested in  vain, but found cause for hope and  enthusiasm in the triumph ot the  Serb.  Only one diplomatic triumph Austria brought home in her -campaign.  Servian aspirations for a "window on  the sea" were thwarted and the Albanian kingdom was created. But no  sooner had it been created than the  rival ambitious of Italy and Austria  In gan to 'clash and European ��������� observers forecast a quarel between Austria  The coat of a general war in Europe would be $19,7'55,'625,0'00 a year  If such a war comes and lasts five  years the cost would without indemnity claims will'reach the amazing  total of $98,778,125,000."

C.  and Italy such as'Schleswig-Holstein  provoked between Italy and Austria.  This on the edge of the present  crisis the Triple Alliance found her  self in a badly weakened condition.  Austria on her southern boundary  was confronted with Serb and Rouma  ni&n armies, whose fighting capacity  was proved, whose national aspirations would be promoted by Austrian  disruption. Greece too, excluded too  from North Epirus by Italy, had been  driven to the entente and possessed a  ileet and' an army to be reckoned  with.  At home Austria faced growing  disorder. Her Slav populations, their  racial pride and confidence roused by  Servian and Bulgarian victories, no  longer endured with patience the  persecutions of Germans and Hungarians. Disloyalty wa3 on the increase on all sides,' and Austria  seemed about to succeed Turkey as  "The Sick Man of Europe."  In this situation German newspapers and public men began- to demand thai the clash between the Triple Alliance and the Triple Entente  should be postponed'no longer. Time  plainly was with the enomy, xlustria  was growing weaker. Austria-Italian rivalry in Albania as well as  secular rivalry in Trieste and the  Trenfino plainly promised future  quarrels which might destroy the  lighting value of the Trple Alliance  and leave Germany alone between  France and Russia.  It is the German temper which  makes the present 'crisis serious. At  the time of the Bosnian clash no nation in Europe desired war, and only  Germany was ready.

In these day of convenient appliances for the sick room, nursing sick  people at home is not the problem  that it once was. While it is more  practical and preferable in many cases of illness, such as typhoid fever  or cases requiring operations, to send  the patient to the hospital, it is not  always possible, and it is not at all  a difficult matter to nurse any ordinary case of illness at home, provided  one has plenty of common sense and  a gift for adapting one's self and  one's patient to existing circumstan-  cesand conditions, where they cannot  be changed, as well as possessing a  strong body and a clear head and a  brave heart. In many,cases one has  no choice and it is then- that all the  skill and tact and courage one poss-  eses arc called into play.  The ideal sick, room is at the top  of the house away from the hurry  and cares of everyday liife. A southern exposure with plenty of air, but  iri������many houses one doe's not find that  such ideal conditions for nursing do  not' exist. . Whenever it is possible  to choosec a sick room in a house it  should be chosen on the south side  with windows that admit pletny of air  and sunshine, but dark shades or  shutters should be provided so that  in very warm, weather or' in, cases  where a dark room is indicated, the  room may be darkened or kept cool.  The bed should be placed in such  a position so that there is no glare  in the patient's eyes'from the windows and it should, not be in a  draught.- Plenty of' fresh air and  good ventilation are essential in the  sck room and . a screen should ��������� be  provided to protect a patient in bed  from draughts rather than have the  windows closed. A poorly ventilated  sick room and a screen should be  covery .  room is detrimental tc a patient's re  as a surgical bed is the best one  ��������� A single iron bed such as is known  choice, but any ordinary single bed  will dp and may be raised to a con-  to use for a patient, if one has a  venient height���������to save the nurse  stooping ' too much, by , means of  square or round wooden blocks cf  equal height in which, in the centre  of each, is a slight hollow in which  the leg of the bed rests. A single  width bed is much more easiy chang  ed too but a double bed has the ad  vantage of having two places for the  patient to lie on and thus provides  a little change frim one side of the  hot. ��������� Better scill it is to have two  bed to the other when he is tired or  single beds���������one for the day and one  for the night. " The patient may be  very easily moved from the one to'  the other by pushhig the beds close  together and drawing the patient on  Where the patient Is not top 111 to  be moved it is restful and'refreshing  to be sponged in the evening, rubbed  with alcohol, and havo a different,  (not necessarily fresh but of course  hot soiled) nightgown put on. In  making tho patient's bed it is not,  necessary to change all the bed linen  written a thonsand years before Socrates was born: not from the Romans, masters of jurisprudence, for  the words antedate the founding of  Rome, by seven hundred and 'fifty  years They come from our Heavenly  Father and they embody the great  Septenary law. that runs through our  each day.    When a fresh top sheet is  nature: therefore.it is of equal appli  used that taken off may be used for  sheet or wide sheet folded once may  sheet'or wide sheet1 fodod once may  be used as a draw sheet which may  be drawn tight and so keep'the bed  firm which adds greatly to the patient's comfort. , In some cases, of ill  ness it is .wise, to put a yard wide  rubber sheet under the draw sheet  to protect the mattress���������in the .absence of rubber sheeting white oil  cloth may be used or a folded blanket  Newspapers or felt have' been used  also but, the former, are apt to be  noisy and the latter hot.  Whenever possible give the patient  a warm sponge bath followed by an  alcohol;   rub  each  morning.       it  is  well to keep an old pair of blankets  for the purpose.    To put the, blanket  under a helpless patient turn the latter   on   his   side,   fold   the   blanket  several  times longitudinally, leaving  the edge on top and placing the fold  ed blanket against the patient's' back  as he lies on his'side.    Then gently  turn him on  his back and roll him  over on his other side and draw the  folds' of  the  blanket through.    The  same method is used in putting on a  clean bottom or draw sheet.    To put  on a .clean top sheet without exposing  the patient,  put the clean sheet on  over, the bed clothes, loosen the latter at the foot, tack in the clean top  sheet and carefully draw    out    the  blankets   and   soiled   top  sheet  and  put the blankets on over the clean  sheet.      In place' of a heavy spread  a clean sheet may, be used to protect  the blankets or a light weight dimity  counterpane.  In caring for a patient at home it  is well to remember that punctuality  is of the greatest importance and  nourishment and medication must be  given regularly at the intervals ordered by the doctor. Quiet is essential in the sick room. Creaking shoes  and rustling dresses and whispering  are out of place and anything that  tends to excite the patient must be  avoided. Sleep and/- rest are also  very necessary and nature must be  assisted as far as possible in restoring the diseased body to/shealth and  strength.  It is not easy to nurse members of  one's family, they are more likely to  be fractions with, and to question  orders from a relative than a stranger and infinite tact and patience are  required at times to carry out the  doctor's orders. One must be firm  but kind and remember that' sick  peope must be treated at times much  like children.  ' Much may be done for the comfort  cf the patient in a long-continued  illness by the use of small pillows  of various shapes and sizes to relieve  tired   backs  and  limbs  and  fill   up  a sheet-from one. mattress    to    the -hollows, and rings of different sizes  family  of  children  and  that  is  the  cation to every nation on earth.

Is this king of .days'"  created for our Father, sanctified  and saved by our Saviour, pre  served by tiio church, worth saving  by us in this century? A moment's  serious thought will show that it is  impossible to outgrow a law of nature such as this- Septenary law is  proved to be. . Here are a few of the'  reasons: '  First, Man's body needs' it. There  was never an, age when humanity '  needed this weekly rest day more  than now. The difllcuty is to arrest  the momentum of. activity and men  are found on Sunday in the rushing  mood. Men want to do something  to; go somewhere to keep up the  weekday pace by some dissipating use'  of the Lord's Day.  l-.'ence Sunday exci rsions Sunday a-  musements,''Sunday dinner, parlies,  and Sunday receptions.-  Second, the ramd of man need:> ii.

The Lord's Day  is . a pysiological necessity' for the  restoration ot the cu:ice lost during  the week.- When men break this  law they themselves break down  through insomnia and nervous debil  ity. Then they must perforce rest  by a sea voyage or at a health resort  Fifty twoLSabbaths a year mean near  ly two months' vacation to every one  of the workers.1'  Third, the soul needs it.

The soul' has its rights  We read of Jesus: ''He went as his  custom was into the.synagogue on the'  Sabbath Dty"If Jesus needed the pri  vilige much more do our ordinary  men.

A sick- room should be furnished  jas simply as possible���������rno superfluous  furniture or hangings���������-but' it should  not be too bare or cheerless. A  plain tinted wall paper is much more  restful to the eye than a conventional  patern. A few poted plants or  flowers in vases give a homelike  touch and note of coicr and make  the sick room more attractive. A  comfortable couch or large easy chair  should be provided ior the early  stages of the patient's convalescence  Hs surroundings should be as cheer  ful and attractive as possible for environments have a potent influence  on sick people and helps or hinders  their recovery. In the same way the  atmosphere of the sick room should  be as cheerful as possible. All discussions and arguments or subjects  likely to cause irritation in his weak  condition should be avoided in the  hearing of the patient, for the mental  attitude of the patient does much to  promote or retard his recovery. He  must be made to feel that everything  possible is. being done for him and  he should be encouraged as consistently as possible in order that he may  co-operate as far as he is able, with  his will and reason, with medicine  and science.  Nourishment for the patient should  be offered to him in as attractive a  manner as possible' and, when it is  feasible, favorite beverages or dishes  should be chosen. An attractively ar-  tractively arranged tray with appetizing food, daintly served, will often  appeal to a patient who has little inclination or appetite for food and  very often food that has been ordered  for him, but for which he does not  care, will be eaten more readily because served attractively. Clean linen, pretty dishes and sparkling silver  and glass, well cooked and seasoned  food, and, if possible, a flower" on  the tray are all valuable aids to the  nurses in persuading all unwilling  patients to take nourishment..  It is desirable, but not imperative,  to have a plentiful supply of bed linen for the sick room. By exercising care and good judgment the  nurse may make a limited supply go  a long way. It is advisable, when  possible, to use two nightgowns���������one  for the day and one for the night.  made of non-absor.bant cotton and.  bandages may be used to relieve pres  sure.  There are many ways in which the  thoughtful and observant nurse may  lessen- the discomforts of illness and  relieve the tedium of her patient.  When it is not possible to secure  some of the many devices and means  for making easy the care of the sick  at home a . nurses ingenuity and a-  daptability are called upon to make  use of such( means as are at hand.  These combined with  "The reason firm, the temperate will,  Endurance, foresight,  strength and  skill"  are the' secret of successful nursing  whether it is done by amateurs    or  professional nurses.  WHY  SAVE THE  LORD'S DAY?  (J. L. Campbell).  The above is the title of a sermon  by Br. D. H. Martin of Glen Falls  New York an outline of which is  herewith  given:  1 he only couv.'.iand in tho Decalogue which begins with the word  "Remember" is the fourth: Remember the Sabbath Day to keep it holy,  as if the Divine writer realized there  would be more danger of forgetting  this than any of the others and of  yielding to the subtle temptations  of caprice and convenience as an ex  cuse for violating it. "Remember"  stands like a solitary sentinel in the  front of this solemn command yet  it has been chafed under who was  stoned for gathering sticks on the  Sabbath, down to the modern saloon  keper who, in commercializing his  foliowman's weakness, breaks three  laws, that of the Sabbath, the state  and brotherly love. Jesus declared  the Sabbath was made for man, that'  is.M'or mankind. It is to be kept  holy, that is wholesomely, so that  our threefold nature, body mind and  soul may benefit. No law .more  wise and merciful ever came from  the loving heart of God; a law as  all embracing in its design, as sun  light meeting the needs of King and  peasant, master and servant, parent  and child.  Whence came the wisdom conden  sed in this fourth commandment?  Not from the Greeks, called the wisest of  nations for the words were  church.  So the Sabbath was made fcr man  that he might be in. every sense a  man. Something more than a beast  of burden, something more than a  cash register, something more than  a pendulum swinging between "his  home and his business. In an ordinary life time of seventy years  there are years of Sundays. Therefore  the manner in which a man keeps  these three thousand six hundred and  forty Sabbaths will make its impress  on the man's life for all eternity.  Why not man do as1 they please with  the Sabbath? Because it is made for  man's liberty, not for man's license,  and the highest liberty is always to  be l'^und in conformity to law. Some  one. will say. I am so busy during  the week I have no other day for  recreation. You are not busier than  many men who keep the Sabbath and  find enough recreation on other days  Have you any day for culture of soul  life? The Lord's day is like a rent  ed house, but the tenant has no right  to say, "I will do what I please  with this house" No, the house is his  to use and not abuse. "  If a tramp tells me a pitiful tale  and I have seven silver dollars and  give six of them to him what would  we think of him if he came to my  house at night and robbed me of the  seventh? Look at the people who do  spend the entire Sabbath Day in pleas  ure seeking. Not one gleam of spir  itual light or real joy in their faces  A day's march nearer home!  We appeal for'a sane and safe Sab  bath not in the interests of the  church or religion but in the interests  of all the people, believers and unbelievers. Lincoln said,"As we keep  or break the Sabbath Day, we nobly  save, or meanly lose the last best  hope by which man rises" The gold  en rule rules for the observance of  the Sabbath Day. Do I oblige other  people to lose a restday by my con  duct? For Christian men and women  there can be only one course of action  "I was in the spirit on the Lord's  Day" Keep that phrase in mind and  you will find it easy to decide courses of conduct on this day. The lov  ing heart of God gave us this day let  us not grieve Him by desecrating it  and thus bring dishonor and hurt  upon ourselves.  ������Mmmgim������������roimmUMHmttWaMllMl nri    ABBOTSFORD   POS1  ABBOTSFO.ftD,   B.   0\  :*|  Mr. Salt, of the local customs staff  is enjoying a week's holidays in the  Terminal City.

Prof. Hill Tout our esteemed fellow citizen read an able paper last  Tuesday in Vancouver before the union of the Canadian Clubs. ' His subject was "Our Forerunners in B. C."  To show how grievously the Canadian  Pacific sins against, equalization, this  writer adds that' rates from Eastern  Canada to Vancouver are lower Chi,.n  rates to Ivanilpops and some other hi  tonnodiate  points!. ,   ,  This conies from (lie influence of  water competition.

Other countries including  Km gland and tho United States, per  mit discrimination .under like conditions.  ��������� Let us suppose that this aoclio.ii of  the Act was repealed at tho instance  of tfhe Grain Growers, and the Can  adian Pacific obliged to face tho water competition at Vancouver without  the 'privilege of discriminating.  . ('.early it could not cany ivoodfc  from Montreal t.b Toronto across the  continent to Vancouver as cheaply as  its ordinary rates, as vessels going  by sea around Cape Horn, or they  could bo carried forward by way of  tho amphibious Tchuantcpoc route in  Mexico, or by, the Panama Canal  .when opened, it would lose its pros  cut share of the traffic. There would  then be no discrimination by rail a-  gainst Kamloops.  It is equally obvious however, that  natural discrimination would remain  In other words goods booked from  Eastern Canada to Kamloops would  have to be convoyed first to Vancou  ver by'water and inland by wagon,  at a heavy additional expense to tho  Kamloops'consumer, notwithstanding  that, as the crow Hies, Kamloops is  nearer than Vancouver to Eastern  Canada.

"The, Grain Grower may retort: But  if the Canadian Pacific can afford  those exceptionally low rates to Van  couver, what does it mean by charging higher ones on other parts of its  system? Why isn't it compelled by  the  Raidroad Board to equalize?  Perhaps the best answer is the one  contained in the decision by the Interstate Commerce Commission when  dealing with this very subject of water'competition on the I'aciflc Coast:  "The rates accepted by the defen  dent railways on shipments to their  coast terminals afford them a mar  gin of profit over the cost of moving the' traffic    Their net revenues  aro therefore, are increased by en  gaging in this competitive business  Mut measured by the income these  roads are untitled to receive upon  the large outlay roqlirod for their  construction, ��������� the   Coast  rates  aro  not   remunerative       Their   entire  . business could not bo done on tho  the large-outlay required for their  No one blames the Gran  Growers  because' questions   of   this  sort,   are  somewhat beyond their range    There  is not  one of you,  coming fresh , to  the transportation problem, who does  not  find  him sol If,   in   the  words  of  Isaiah, pretty much in the situation  of "a bull in a net"  I'3VMXIVTiriN(i FOR  THM   HATH   IIOOM  for tho .kitchen, and for every  room in' the house in the way  of plumbing' work, or fittings,  is our specialty.
