The  house was artistically decorated with  dahlias and trailing vines. The bride  elect was the recipient of m>any beautiful as well as useful articles. A-  mong those present were Mrs. Alexander, The Misses Muriel,, Celeste  and Nerva Page, Miss Beharrell, Miss  Machell, Misses Gertrude and Annie  Smith, Misses Connie and Bessie  Cruickshank, Miss Duncan, Miss.Mc-  Lagan, Miss Pearl Alexander, Miss  Shaw, Miss Kent, The Misses Crist,  and Miss Purver.  TWO   OF   A  KIND  . Two young officers in an Irish regiment of the same age, says the  World, entered and left Sandhurst  at the same time with equal credit;  both fell on the same day in the  same fight in France.  The PatriotlcT'concert in aid of the  Belgians, which had    been    eagerly  looked forward to by, the people of  Abbotsford and'surro'unding district  was held in, the Alexandria Hall on  Friday evening;'-October 23rd. To say  that the concert was a grand, success  from every point,of view would only  be to express uVmildly.    Such an aggregation   of high  class .talent  was  never before.gathered ��������� together    on  one program In Abbotsford and many  were the exclamations,   of    delight  heard frbm' all parts of the well filled  hall.'   People had come from far and  wide to show their interest in such  a worthy cause;and the evening will,  long   be   remembered   by' all   those  who   were'  fortunate  to  be  present..  The seating'capacity of the hall was  greatly overtaxed and the' S.  R.'  O.  sign- was hung out ��������� long before the  commencement "of proceedings. - The  thanks  of  community  are  certainly  due to Mrs. J. C. McLagan and daughters who were untiring in their efforts to make the concert the success  it  was.       Every one,, of the twenty  one members included in the program  was  a gem and  from the' time the  curtain rose at.8:30 until the closing  tableau7 scene everything' went along  with  a swing arid a", dash , that displayed.good organization and manage  ment.

All  were in  excellent -voice,  and were heard at their .best.      In |  addition to the singers Miss Henderson,  (Abbotsford) .gave a piano solo  which was splendidly rendered. Mr.  McMillan and Simon showed themselves to be past masters with the banjo  The  Sketch  "Lady Jane"  was  well  put on and showed careful rehearsal  and last, but not by any means least  the orchestra from Sumas, Wash., under  thel capable  leadership of Wm.  Clarke rendered several catchy numbers which were highly appreciated.  The   accompanists- on   piano   to   the  singers   were   Miss   Doris   McLagan,  Miss Henderson and Mr. D. Blair, Jr.  ina very satisfactory manner.      The  rising of the curtains on the opening  number     dispayed       a     decorative  scheme in keeping with the occasion  The stage had been, artistically de- j  corated   with, flags,   autumn   leaves |  and potted plants which gave a splen j  did effect.    The programmes were'all:  hand  written and  quite  a task  for  those capable people whoh ad this in  hand.    The programmes were offered  for  sale  during  the-.evening  by  Red Cross Nurses in the persons of  Misses Mabel and Annie Nelson, Miss  Mains,   Miss Vivian  Peele  and  Miss  Dorothy Parton, whose efforts added  a tidy sum to the proceeds. At the  conclusion of this most excellent entertainment coffee 'that mother used  to make', cake and sandwiches wrere  provided to those who had helped to  make the concert the great success  it  was.    This feature  was attended  to by Mrs. Peele,  Mrs. B. B.  Smith  and   Mrs.  Wiggins.    Mr.   J.  A.   Mc-  Gowan acted as chairman for the evening  The net proceeds totalled up $200  which sum has been'remitted to the  Belgian Consul, Mr. Whitehead, at  Vancouver. Well done Abbotsford!

Constable'  On'Friday evening the Captain of  Matsqui Home Guard wras out hunting pheasants, in a'field south of the  Harris read. Constable Cannon was  standing about forty-five, yards away  in the same field, when suddenly a  pheasant, fiew from the feet of. the  captain in a straight line for the  constable's, face, and without, thinking what kind of game he was looking for, big or little, he pulled the  trigger with the result that.the shot  missed the little bird, "and found rest  in the constable's shoulder. His hat  was riddled with shot, as was his  vest. Very fortunately the choke  barrel was not discharged after,the  first shot or there might have been  a fatal accident.  The constable is doing well, as the  Captain of the Home Guards is an  ambulance man and ' drew the shot,  out right there in the field.  of the Home Guard when he goes to  the front will be sure to hit somthing  even if he misses the first Uhlan he  aims at���������it might be the Kaiser, and  that would be well.

This action was taken  on the reading of the communication  from the Matsqui-Sumas Board of  Trade which stated that the Board  had decided to extend support to the  League and had made a contribution  of $25, also on the reported decision  of the Strawberry Hill Farmers' Institute to support the League if a nominal fee for associate membership  were' established.

There never was a problem in the  life of a peoplo that was not capable  of being worked out to the betterment  of all concerned, no matter how lony'  the solution may be in coming. Come  it will, and sonietimes^quickcr than  is expected. It is just a matter of  business and brains. There is a problem before the settler of the Fraser  Valley that deserves the best business brains in the Fraser Valley to  solve. That problem is the marketiug  of the produce of the soil of the Val-  '��������� ley to such advantage that it will  benefit the producer and not the consumer,  or  the middleman.  The man who labors at any kind  of work is entitled to the'full benefits  of his-work (this is not Socialism, but  a- commonsense view) and he who  ��������� has the energy and the courage to go  on to the land in this province or  any other province, and carve out a  home for-himself arid his family, if  he has one', is entitled to all that  his energy will sell for on the market to' the consumer,-in the shape of  fruit, vegetables or any other product of> the' soil.- There should be  no; ghoul sticking around for a slice  of the profits���������:a parasite, some people would say.  It is a known fact that the fruit-  ' grower of the Fraser Valley has not  yet at any time received the full total of his produce. There is always  e_ch' year -a certain amount of loss  to him through improper shipping, or  improper packing (?) or some other  kind of a scourge1 that makes the  article'-bring, him less. It is common knowledge thats the poor farmer  ��������� feeds the world,' without he himself  receiveing the full benefits of his toil  iri' cash ��������� or kind���������often not even a  , kind" smile.'  ' The selling agency,, or shall we call  it  a company,  which  the  league , is  forming,' may   or   may  .not   be   the  solution' of this problem,    but ' this  we  all  know  that  these  companies  similar to the one the league intends  does profit the smlJa    farmer    when  it' comes to selling him feed for his  chickens,  his cows or other articles  of feed for the farm stock or fowl  Many men will testify to the benefits  derived   by  the  formation     of.     the  Poultry Association in Mission City,  under  the' management  of   our  Mr.  - Aikenhead.

If monej can be made for" the farmor by selling to him what is consumed on the land, why cannot money be made for the farmer by selling  his produce? ..It ought to worK both  ways.'  FRIDAY, OCTOBER. 30,  I!) 1.4  have   watched   that ho stands oh "the same basis as  Martin. Why not trust to the Hon.,  Joseph's letter in the Vancouver  World?    Same distrust as ever!  But someday when the political  air is clear of the European war we  can deal with these things and feel  that we are not trespassing on forbidden ground.'.  A writer in the Vancouver World  seems to be full of the harmful and  non-progressive influence of our present system of, banking. He has certainly, some very curious ideas about  aiany things as expressed in a letter  published in this issue from- the  daily World.'  He asks the question,- "What difference does it make to the business  men and traders of Vancouver wheth-  th'e government ' encourages settlement on the land or not" Of. course  to selfish Vancouver���������and there are  many in Vancouver of the same opinion as the World writer���������it makes  no difference, as .the people there  would rather have on their tables  the'product of a foreign country than  the products of the Fraser Valley, or  any part of the province. Ask the  fruit grower if this is'not right-.-  - If the farmer of the Fraser Valley  had to depend on the people of Vancouver for the purchase' and' consumption of the provincial products  the farming community would' be in  a sorrier plight than they are today.  Any prosperity of the farming community of the province is not due to  the kindness of the people of the City  of Vancouver. But then' what's the  use in saying anything���������it will be always the same.'  The sons of the soil in the Fraser  Valley these days are doing themselves proud in helping the needy in  the coast cities ^by the shipment of  products of the land, to the cities,  free of cost. Such generosity cannot  be forgotten in the days to ��������� come  go- unrewarded���������even by Vancouver  CONDEMN' THE  NEW  MUNICIPAL ACT OF B.  C.  Report of the Solicitor for Union.of  British Columbia Municipalities  Causes Debate  The shares.of the new company are  $50,.,'and 20' percent, or $10 down.  It is presumed that not less tha.n one  share will be sold to one person. Is  this the practical conclusion after ail  investigation is .ended-. $10 is a lot of  money to many people nowadays, even the fruitgrower. Why not arrange it so that all the little fellows  can get in too?  According to an article ��������� published  in another column of this issue from  the Vancouver-Sun, the Liberal organ  of the party in B. C, the .Hon. Joseph Martin and the president of the  Liberal party in Vancouver, have set  aside the bone of contention and will  be hereafter members of the same  fold. 'It Is up to some one now to  set Hon. Joseph and Smith Curtis  'on thetsame footing now. But what  about "Bob" Kelly the former Tammany of the Liberal party in B. C,  Seventy-seven delegates were present at the opening session of the 10th  annual convention of Union of British  Columbia.   Municipalities. Among  those present ��������� were reeves and representatives of councils from all the  parts  of the  province.  Delegates were welcomed by Mr.  J. T. Robinson, president and Mayor  Crawford of Kamloops. An acrimonious discussion was maintained on  the report issued by Mr. McDiarmid,  solicitor of the Union, who strongly  condemned the vicious principle embodied in the powers given to the  Lieu-Gov. in- the new Municipal Act.  After discussion the report was a-  dopted Mr. McQuarrie, of New  Westminster, being strongly in opposition and moving a vote practically of  no confidence in the solicitor.  Alderman Woodside of Vancouver  read a paper on "Buy Made-in-Canada  Goods" Exception was taken by Clerk  Logie of Summerland, who said Vancouver manufacturers advocated buying Made-in-Canada goods, but would  not buy British Columbia fruit, insisting on Washington produce. Aid.  Enright, of Vancouver, said high  freight rates were the principal' cause,  Mr. Woodside's address was ordered  to be printed.  Inspector Baird, in the evening  outlined the duty of his office. Some  criticism was made about the power  of 'the inspector to turn down a bylaw already passed by the people-but  Mr. Baird made personally a great  impression. -  !'i. \ "cioman, in charge of thr  Tranquil!?.

Dutcher, of Vancouver, coosi.it-  ing engineer of the IC^mloops hydro-  adversaries have attempted to create  ill-feeling between the Liberal party  and Mr. Martin.    Mr.' Smith says:  1 i  "Instead of- depending on newspaper despatches, i wrote at. once to  Sir Wilfrid Laurier to get the ('acts  which 'I consider should be satisfactory to all concerned. Mr. Martin  has had some difference of opinion  for years with the'Liberal' party policy, especially on the trade question  as well as the British preference, being anxious to have the latter materially increased. My own opinion on-  this matter has always been the  same, as 1 expressed it in the house  of commons when the reciprocity a-  greement was under discussion. As  far as Mr. Martin's opinions are concerned on this question, I have . always held the same views.  "These differences between Mr. J.  Martin and Sir Wilfrid Laurier "have  been settled in favor of a stronger  policy in favor of reduction of,duty  on,farming implements and mining  and mill machinery, and some material increase in the British preferuce.  This is very pleasing t'o me and settles any difference between myself  and Mr. Martin. Those differences  in the past arose out of matters connected with provincial affairs, before  there were any party lines in British  Columbia, and have long since disappeared. In fact, so anxious was 1, as  the president of1 the Vancouver Liberal Association, to get all true Liberals to settle their differences, that  as soon as Mr. Martin arrived in Van  couver from England, 1 -interviewed  him at his hotel and invited him to  join tbe party in Vancouver.  "Mr.- Martin has always been a  democrat and no one has ever questioned his honor in public life. ��������� These  two things arc, in my opinion, the  real qualifications for members of  the Liberal party. He comes- into the  party like everyone else, assuming no  special authority but what-is given to  him by the party, and what a majority of the party considers he merits  This must be satisfactory to all true  Liberals, for which I am personally-  delighted. .

THE HOG MARKET  The folowing is from .Seattle.  ��������� Owing very largely to conditions  in the South brought on by the European war the hog market of the United States- has not been in an ideal  condition' from the standard of the  'hog raiser or the packer but the government advices from Washington  indicate that they are on the mend  and. that the'farmer who a few  months from .now has a crop of hogs  will relap'a, mighty handsome profit  As a' rule the American packers aim  about this time of the year to clean  outthe stock they .have on hand and  to be in the markets for a fresh  supply. '- The South has always been  a great, market for the "clean-up"  but this year, owing tp the inability  of the South to dispose of its cotton  money in that section has been scarce I  THAT  LOOK OF  SATISFACTION  is in the face of every man  fresh from' his morning plunge.

On the contrary sales  in that section have .decidedly fallen  off and the packer has found himself  with a big stock on hand.

C.  Campaign",. The meeting was largely  attended and great interest was manifested, r  .Speeches were made by lady president, the chairman of the Board of  Trade, officers of the B. C Manufacturers Association, and others, all of  whom seemed to feel that the question was a most important one to Vancouver and called for their best efforts, says a writer in ,the World.  It- is rather commendable for a  business man to be keen for trade,  for _oiit of his business he hopes to  win profits, and profits look good'.  That the people of any community  should patronize local industries,'  thereby keeping money in circulation  in their own neighborhood, land em-  plyoing their own people seems reasonable; that they do not do so is very  evident. Let us think for a,minute  The house 1 am in is built- of B. C.  lumber, fir and cedar,-, taken from  the virgin forest of the country, felled and sawn into logs by Japs, Hindoos, Austrians, Germans and other  foreign labor, hauled to the landing  by a donkey engine, conveyed to the  mill by a locomotive, manufactured  into lumber in an up-to-date mill, at  the rate-of several hundred thousand  feet per day, by a gang of Chinamen  and Japanese laborers, piled in the  yards and warehouses, and loaded on  to wagons," for deliveryby Japs and  Chinamen, and all it cost the builder  was from $16. to $50 per thousand.  The timber-was a British Columbia  product, bestowed by nature in lavish  abundance of quality, and in quantity all that could be desired, for  which the people of Canada - get 5 0  cents per thousand, out of which  they pay for office and field expenses-  protection from fire, etc., about $1.00  The Jap was made in Tokio, the  Chinaman  in  Pekin,  the  donkey' at  !y donated to the war fund. The  boxes cost GO cents. , It took ten  years to groAv the trees, two hours to  gather and pack the fruit and some  more time with a man and team to  place them at the railroad station.  For all this he got 30 cents! No  wonder the Board of Trade wants  men to settle on the land. There is  possibly not another man in this Wes-'  tern country that carries the welfare,  of the "dear people" so close to his'  heart as Sir Richard McBride. If he  hated anybody I think he- would try  to get them interested in a piece of"  land; but he don't, and he leaves all  that buncombe to the real estate a-  gents and the Board of. Trade.  1 take it that if a man gets the  "back  to  the, land"  idea,  or thinks  it is up to him to find a, mine that  will employ men in producing something that people want, or fancies he  can see business and prosperity for  himself and others in a large factory  ,  it  is  his  own   funeral.    He   don't  heed to think that he is a patriot or-  that he is'even the first of his kind.  There have been others, and 'the bitter.,experience of others will be his  experience;   only  .more   so..    If   the'  merchants   and   the     manufacturers  and .business men of Vancouver, had  been wideawake instead of investing  their lovely dollars in lands! hous.es,  and lots, goods and chattels,'and oth"--;-  er things from which, the value fad-,  eth, they would have negaged in, the  banking business, sot at today they  would, be  secure,  and all the  stiffs  who didn't know any better would be  working overtime and sitting up at.  nights to  figure out how, they, too,  could make something with nothing:  Why a man with real white matter,  in his head should invest money in a .-  great office building, a factory or a  mine, when the opportunity * was at  hand to promote a bank passeth. understanding, unless he really .wanted  to be of some use in the world.

The fish  are caught principally by .Japs, and  the profits of the industry goes to  English, German, French, American  and other foreign bondholders and  shareholders.

Patriotism for profit is better than no idea of patriotism at all, and may lead to that purer and nobler brand that seeks the  well-being of the whole people,    instead  of  pecuniary advantage  only,  of a group of traders and non-producers, who cannot long live off their  .own fat.  Up to the present time the purpose  served by .the board of trade, the  Manufacturers' Association and the  wholesale and retail dealers appears'  to be .to help feed the big bankingin-  ,stitutions of the country at the expense of the consumers on the one  hand and the.producers on the other  What difference does it make to the  business men and traders of Vancouver whether the government encourages settlement on the land or not?  It is much easier to sell a few hundred thousand acres of land to a big  real estate firm than to sell it in  small lots to four or five thousand  farmers. It is much better in, every  way for the government, assuming no  responsibility for public improvements, can sympathise with the poor  farmers and still be the friends of  the people.

HAS FREE  "HAPPY HUNTING GROUNDS"  The following letter has been received which  we gladly publish:  Huntingdon, B. C, Oct 19.  Editor, Abbotsford Post,  Abbotsford, B. C.  Dear Sir:  I note in your issue of the 16th  Inst., a sarcastic remark re my greed  during the pleasant season; in not  allowing; anyone to shoot on my property; having posted notices to this  effect.    .  Not a notice stands on my property  it has always been open for the enjoyment of all neighbors and friends  As far as notices are concerned  the whole country is full of them, and  the individual who singled out, and  advertised me, as an ��������� exception of  greed; is one of those mischievous  insignificants, who never substantiate  their statements, by having their  names printed.  Yours truly,  W. L. BLATCHFORD.  We presume the following is the  item which has hurt Mr. Blatchford's  feelings:  "Customs' Officer Blatchford wants  all the pheasants that locate on his  ranch and has posted a notice on  his property to warn shooting'men  of his feelings in this regard."  The new concrete stack at the  Trail smelter is 25 0 feet high and 18  feet inside diameter. Some stack that  Eh!  Revelstoke has shelved its bylaw  to borrow money for the present.  Endorsing a recommendation . by  the executive, the Fraser Valley Development League in general session  at New Westminster last ' week- de-  .linitcly decided on ,the organization  of a central selling agency for the cooperative marketing of Fraser Valley  produce. The agency will .be organized under the provisions of the Agricultural Associations Act, which provide that when twenty per cent, of  the capital is subscribed in the province the provincial government will  advance the remaining ��������� eighty per  cent. The stock is to be sold on the  basis of 20 per cent, cash, the balance over a period of five years, so  that the deferred payments of the  stock as they come in will meet the  repayments of the government ad  vance. It is proposed to put the  capital of the agency association at  $200,000, to be divided into 4000  shares of ?50 each. The central a-  gency will be' supported by local exchanges, which will ensure a sufficient amount of produce to make the  marketing operations of the central  exchange a success.  The report was adopted and the executive was empowered to proceed  with organization on the lines indicated.  In addition to acting on the medium for collection, transportation  and marketing of produce, the exchange will be in .a-position to collect information as to the following  season's probable markets, and advise growers to guard against under  or over-production, and will supervise packing and grading.  In advocating this action Mr. G. O  Buchanan pointed out that the League is acting on the best available  advice of the experts of the Agricultural Department, and on lines-recommended by the Royal Commission  on Agriculture. The need for such  an organization is obvious. Farmers  are discouraged by reason of the inadequate returns received, and the  necessary government assistance can  only be secured in this way.  In the course of the discussion  it was demonstrated that the members of the league have confidence  in the farmers of the Fraser Valley  taking up this project. In' order to  take advantage of the benefits accruing members must be stockholders  and this it was felt will be a sufficient inducement. Some discussion a-  rose as to the methods of dividing  the profits, over and above the six  per cent, dividend which the act provides shall be the maximum. The  suggestion was made that the consumers who were stockholders might  be allowed some share of the direct  advantages, on -a co-operative plan,  in ratio to the amount of produce  purchased, at it was pointed out that  six per cent, would hardly- induce-  anyone not a producer to take stock  in the association. On the other  hand the view was expressed that  the benefit to thei consumer -would  consist mainly in lower prices resulting from the elimination of the  middleman,. although this of course  would apply equally to all consumers, whether shareholders or not.  1 Mr. G. O. Buchanan thought that  the adoption of a co-operative plan  would hardly be permissable under  the act, and in any case would widen  the scope of the project to an extent not foreseen by the executive.  The project was not, however, by any  means perfected, and the executive  would yet have to consult many authorities before setting the details.  On Friday evening last the regular  two car passenger train on the B..C.  E. R. Chilliwack line was derailed a  mile.west of Abbotsford when it run  into a drove of cattle. Motorman  Brookes was slightly injured, while  Conductor Crowell was . not hurt.  Conductor Armstrong of the Westminster branch, on'' leave of absence  and who was returning from a hunting trip, had the small bone of his  left arm broken. . He was taken lo  the Sumas hospital. Mr. Burnett, an  immigration officer, who was one of  the pasengers,  was  badly shaken.  The train was.:due at New Westminster at 8:55 p.m. and it was 7.10  p. in. when the accident happened  Both cars were' derailed, the first  leaving the track completely and being badly wrecked while,the second  just left the rails and was in no  way damaged.   '  The drove of cattle had evidently  been grazing alongsidet he track and  hearing the approaching train, became excited and'ran,; in front of the  cars.    Some of the cattle were killed  The lights at the C. P. R. station  which is supplied by the 13. C. E. R.  were out for half an hour, and that  "is the-first intimation that the people  of Mission City had of the accident -  which assumed very large reports of  damage for a few, hours untMhe true  -facts of the case -were heard.  THE  PROBLEM  IS SOLVED  A solution of the problem of what  to do with the unemployed might be  found in placer mining along Lar���������  do river,' if conditions next summer  show no improvenment over what exists at the present time. It is said  on reliable authority that as high as  $5 per day has been made by "panning" along the banks of the stream  that flows into the north end of the  lake, but in ordinary flush times this  is not considered, a. fair return for  the unpleaslant nature of the work.  No doubt the owners of. large leases  of placer ground would favorably  consider the sub-leasing of small areas to individuals .on a royalty basis  as this, method would serve "to-help  prospect the ground. '  Placer mining on the Fraser would  be profitable too if.some people were  content with the work.  By instructions from the Hon. the  Minister of Agriculutre a distribution  of a superior sort of grains and potatoes will- be made, during the coming  winter and spring to Canadian farmers.. The sample foo general distribution will consist of spring wheat  (about 5 lbs) white oats (about 4  lbs) barley (about 5 lbs) and field  peas (about 5 lbs') These will be sent  out from Oltawa. A distribution of  potatoes (in 3 tb samples) will be  carried on from several of the experimental farms, the Central Farm'  al Ottawa supplying only the ��������� provinces of Ontario and Quebec/ All  samples will be sent free, by mail. .  Applicants must give particulars in!  regard to the soil on their farms,'  and some account of their experience  with sculi kinds of grain (or potatoes) as they have grown, so that  a promising sort for their conditions  may be selected.   ���������  Each application must be separated-and must be signed by the applicant. Only one sample of grain.and  one of potatoes can be sent to each  farm. If both samples aro asked for  in the same letter only one will .be  sent. Applications .on any,, kind of  printed form cannot be accepted.  As the supply of seed is limited  farmers are advised lo .apply early;  but the applications will not necessarily be filled in the exact order in  which they are received. Preference  will bo always given .to the' most  thoughtful and explicit requests. Applications received after the end of  January will probably bo too late.  All applications for grain (and applications from tbe provinces of Ontario and Quebec for potatoes) should  be addressed to the Dominion Cer-  ealist, Central Experimental Farm,  Ottawa. Such applications require  no postage. If otherwise addressed  delay and disappointment may occur.  Aplications, for potatoes, from farmers in any other province should be  addressed (postage, prepaid) to the  Superintendent of the nearest Branch  Experimental Farm in the province.  J. H.

If Krupps Were Crippled  FOLLOWING CANADA'S LEAD  Canada's example in instituting  free distribution of forest tree seedlings, Cuttings, etc., to prairie homesteaders for planting out as shelter  belts, etc., bids fair soon to be followed by the United States department of agriculture. The prespect is  that this distribution will be made  from the newly established Field  Station at Mandan, N. D. Mr. W. A.  Peterson the superintendent of the  station, lately visited the Dominion  Forestry Branch Nursery Station at  Indian Head, Saskatchewan, in order  to investigate Canadian methods of  carrying out the enterprise.  Cranbrook has disposed of $35,000  worth of water works debentures at  88. This will be sufficient to enable  the city to complete the distributory  system this fall.

That the Allies are quite alive  to the importance of this-fact is revealed in the report that the dauntless British airmen who flew over  Dusseldorf was very near the works.  A colossal enterprise, the works dominate the whole of Essen, and something like 70,00 0 workmen are employed. Situated in the centre of  Essen, close to the railway, they, together with their attendant institutions, cover an area of 500 acres. The  tentacle arms of the vast establishment stretch out cotopus-like on all  sides. Two thousand trucks and over fifty locomotives rush along these  tracks daily conveying German guns  armor-plates, ammunition, and shells  to German garrisons, forts, ports, and  harbors. Six thousand tons of coal,  coke, and briquettes are poured daily  into the huge creature's rapacious  jaws. One and a quarter million  tons of fuel are required annually to  appease its insatiable appetite. Twenty million cubic metres of water, or,  more than 450,000 inhabitants of  Cologne consume yearly, are used in  the works."
