The quantity of munitions, the  statement continues, has been  more than doubled, and all necessary-supplies are going forward  promptly.

SI each  Losses in Dardanelles  Have Been Heavy  London, Aug. 20.���������Recent operations on the Gallipoli Peninsula have enabled the British  troops to extend materially the  area in their possession and to  connect their lines along a front  of more than twelve miTes, according to an official statement  issued here early this morning.  The statement indicates also that  additional troops have been landed on the peninsula although no  details are given on this point,  and it is stated that, ''further  reinforcements have arrived."  ft is stated that the losses have  been very heavy, but the Turks  suffered more severely than the  British. The public is warned  that in spite of the encouraging  reports made, the true objectives  of the operations have not been  gained and that "further serious  and costly efforts will be required  before a decisive victory is won."  Russians Falling Back  London,  Aug. 26.���������According  to the Times correspondent at  Petrograd, the Russians have already evacuated   Bialystok   but:  will continue to hold Grodno tin-j  til the bulk of the armies of the j  Grand Duke have reached their  appointed  positions to the east  of Vilna.  Balkan League to  Furnish Million Men  London. Aug. 2G.���������A despatch  from Rome to the Daily Telegraph says: "The Balkan league  is to be reconstructed with a provision for putting a combined  army of one million men in the  field.  Serbia's reply to the Quadruple  Entente respecting concessions  to Bulgaria was handed to Baron  Sonnino, Italian foreign minister, yesterday afternoon, according to a Rome despatch to the  Daily Telegraph.  Turks Massacre  14,000 Christians  Rome, Aug. 27.���������Nearly 14,000  Armenian Christians were killed  by Turks and Kurds in one massacre at Trebizond, Asiatic Turkey, according to Giacomo Gor-  rini, former Italian consul at  Trebizond who has arrived in  Rome.  "In Val Sugana our troops on  the Monte Givarch - Torrento  Mazeo line have extended their  ground and occupied points above  Torrento, as far as the positions  :>f Mount Armentera and Mount  Jaluylo," says an Italian official  statement. In the Seebach valley our artillery opened fire on  an encampment hidden in the  bend of the left bank of the Torrento. The ene'my was forced  r.o flee in disorder pursued by a  mower of well directed shrapnel.  In the upper Isonzo region our  Alpiners captured several strong  intrenchments of the enemy,  along the steep southern slopes  of Monte Rombon. We took 30  prisoners, including one officer,  captured two machine guns, rifles  and a large quantity of munitions.  On the Carzo front our work of  approaching the enemy continues  without interruption."

British Submarines in Baltic  Copenhagen. August 27. The  im,ira?ing number of British sub-  nuirinos in tho Baltic is causing  murh anxiety to the German ad-  mii-siILv. It is reported that Ger-  m.m trawlers are being equipped  with guns for protection against  these .submarines.  London, Aug. 27.���������Brest Litovsk, the main Russian fortress  and concentration centre of the  Bug river line of defenses, was  occupied by Austro-German forces yesterday. While the Russians offered slight resistance to  the invaders during their approach to the fortress, it is apparent that they did not attempt  to defend Brest Litovsk itself,  but evacuated it as they did Os-  sowetz in conformity with their  intention to take up new positions further east. The Germans  now are in possession of the  whole line of railway from Chelm  to Bialystok. The Russians having already evacuated the latter  city, the lesser fortresses of  Grodno and Olita are now the  only strongly defended positions  in the hands of the Russians.  Both these are being approached  by the Germans and probably  will be given up when they have  fulfilled their purpose of facilitating the retreat of the Russians  Lumber Industry to Benefit  Vancouver, Aug. 27.���������With a  good crop the prairies, which is  now assured, the farmers of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba will build better barns and  dwelling houses. The lumber  industry of this province should  consequently be benefitted to a  considerable extent this year,  said John Hooper, editor of the  British-American'Lumberman.

Higinbotham, representing the well known piano  house of Mason & Risch, Vancouver, is a guest at the Bella  Coola Hotel.  Among our many visitors last  week were Mr. and Mrs. A.  Woods and Mrs. Fred* Covey,  they came up from South Ben-  tink for a few days stay in town  and left for home on Thursday.  After a close down of the big  saw and pulp mills at Ocean Falls  for over .two years it is now almost certain that there will be a  move made to operate in the  coming year. Manager Martin  with some men are already on  the ground to commence work  on the dam for the purpose of a  larger storage of water, with the  idea of bringing this up to the  tune of two thousand horse  power claimed to be required in  order to operate these mills.  There will also be a large amount  of repairs to be done to wharves  and new buildings for increasing  the output of the pulp mill.  Logging camps are likely to be  opened early in the spring. It  is commonly reported that the  combined mills, when completed,  will take care of a million feet of  logs per day.  The cohoe fishing -commenced  at the local cannery last week  and some very fair catches were  brought in.. This week the run  has been considerably less, but  this being early for the cohoes  a heavy run of that kind of  kind of salmon is looked for.  The Canadian Red Cross and  St. John Ambulance Association  have for some time sent out appeals to the people of British  Columbia to raise a sum of at  least $25,000 for the equipping  of and establishing a base hos-^  pital with 1040 beds, somewhere  at the front, where our wounded;  sick and maimed soldiers can be  properly treated. Col. E. C.  Hart of Victoria, is the commanding officer and this organization will be known as the Fifth  General Hospital C. E. F.  It is the idea to ask the people  of every city, town and village  to contribute their quota, and in  .the larger cities it has been arranged that this day, the 28th of  August, should be a provincial  Tag Day.  The Canadian Red Cross has  no organization at Bella Coola,  but the ladies of the town, not  to be outdone by their compatriots of other places in this section  of Canada, have taken hold and  on Monday night last held a  meeting, with the result that a  garden party will take place today at the home of Mrs. E. Clayton, beginning at one o'clock in  the afternoon. It is to be hoped  that there will be a large turnout to this gathering, as the program arranged for this afternoon  is a very complete one.

But  the time'for raising more funds  to assist in relieving suffering  caused by; the war is not past,-  neither will be until some time  after the war is over.   Many objections could be raised against  contributing to the gun fund;  but" we are unable to think of  one against giving to the Red  Cross Fund.   It is therefore with  a feeling of confidence in the  continued   willingness ' of   our  people to contribute to this cause  that we present an appealfrom  the Canadian Red Cross Society.  The appeal is dated the 4th inst.  ' and-we give the following extracts from it:.  "May' we enlist your aasist-  ance in a Provincial-wide movement to provide the Fifth Army  Medical Corps with surgical and  ambulance'equipment in addition  to that provided by the Dominion  government.     This equipment  will be used for the purpose of  saving the lives of British Columbia soldiers.   The principal items  to be provided will be special  surgical instruments, X-ray apparatus and powerful motor ambulances;  the latter to convey  the  wounded soldier from  the  battle line jto the hospital in the  quickest possible  manner,  and  the former to enable the surgeons  in charge jto quickly, and painlessly determine the extent and  nature of jhis injuries, to locate  bullets and shell splinters definitely; thus enabling their extraction with a minimum loss of time  and the least amount of suffering  to the soldier.  "Many lives have already been  sacrificed because such apparatus  was either lacking or inadeq\iate  in amount to enable all the  wounded to receive its benefits'.  Many of our boys will fail to return unless such equipment is  provided. It must not be forgotten that the saving of out-  own soldiers is just as important  as the destruction of the enemy  troops.   ,  "It is estimated that at least  $25,000 will be required to meet  the exigencies of the case, and  the B. C. branches of the Red  Cross Society and the St. John  Ambulance Association have  combined their forces to direct  and stimulate the.raising of this  amount. All other patriotic organizations of the province will  join hands with us.  "All the money raised "will go  directly in aid of the work proposed. Not one dollar will be  spent in payment of rent or salaries, as the offices and everything  in them, from furniture to typewriter -ribbons are costing the  societies nothing, and the officers  are giving their'services 'gratuitously."  The Courier feels perfectly  safe in saying that the people of  Bella Coola .-will not. allow this  appeal to go unheeded. The  local W. C. T. U. which so efficiently in the past has advocated and solicited aid for__the  wounded, will take charge of this  campaign for the ,raising of  money to equip the Fifth Medical Army Corps.  In this cause  everybody can  join with voice and money. There  are some of our younger, people  and probably a few" others whe  are not possessed of cash~ but  they can help-by soliciting and  calling   the  attention   of   their  friends to this movement.    One  energetic young person can in  that way render better service  even than one w������ho contributes  liberally, in  cash..    Let   us   all  stand and work together for our  country's relief.

He .forgot to  mention/ however, that for all  his seeming glee his sympathies  are with the speculators.    That  several   orders-in-council   have  been passed "to give the speculator a chance," by allowing him  to hold the land for an indefinite  length of time so he may be able  to realize a profit on the investment.    Our sympathies are also  somewhat in the same direction.  We are not devoid of sympathy  for the man who avails himself  of the opportunity the law gives  him to make profitable investments.   Even if these men live  in foreign countries they should  not be frowned upon .for investing their money in   promising  enterprises in this province; and  even if these enterprises are antagonistic to the true welfare of  the province yet if they are "legitimate we would not like to "throw  the first stone:"  But oiir sympathies do not extend to the men who pass legis  lation that deprives the-settler  from acquiring homes and a livelihood on the most fertile and  accessible lands of the province,  at a price that he can pay. .

He fairly  gloats over the idea that "the  speculators have paid 50c an acre  as a first payment and now on  account of the depression are  unable to complete the payments.  The government, according to  his view, secured a lot of money  for nothing, and is to be commended for it.-  Of all the arguments a dignified government can bring in the  field to defend its actions this is  certainly the lowest; it is a confession of inability to defend itself, and the off ering of an argu-  passed acts of that kind.

Truly where war kills  thousands, this traffic kills tens  of thousands, as I shall show.  Day and night it goes on killing  and wounding quite as really,  though with less, display than  war, and still many otherwise  good people act as if they were  perfectly indifferent.  If we should lose five thousand  men in this war, everyone would  feel that Canada had received a  set back that it would take year.5-:  to recover from. Eut we lose  that many every year through  drink, calculated on a five pei  cent, basis. Does it seem extravagant to say that five thousand lose their lives through drink  in Canada every year? That is  calculated on only half the percentage that is allowed for th(  United States, and Britain is certainly within the mark. What  an immense number of strong  men Canada has lost through  drink during her hundred years  of peace���������probably not less than  two hundred thousand, to say  nothing of the poverty, crime  and other evils that follow in its  train.  it has been calculated that  Russia with her prohibition of  the liquor traffic would, in ten  vears, save as many men as it is  likely she can lose in this war,  md the people would be rich and  prosperous at the end of that  time. With a prohibitory law,  well enforced, Canada -could in  one year save five thousand and  almost empty the jails and poor  houses and bring such prosperity  as we have never known.  If these calculations are correct, surely it is time that we  did something effective. Must  we forever look helplessly on at  the ruining of our country.  H. Arnott, M.B., M.C.P.S.

The aged leader is bitterly opposed to government interference; but it is felt the future  well-being of the Indians demands that the government assume the management of the  colony.  ] CCH [  ] [  \X7HAT person so happy and contented as the prosperous farmer?  \jfc7HAT person so independent?  \)L/HAT ambition more noble than to  be a producer of   the necessaries  of life?  Bella  Coola   farmers are  independent;  they are strangers to hard times.  '"THE REASONS for this  enviable  condi-  ���������"���������   tion of affairs  are   obvious to  anyone  who knows the Bella Coola Valley.  The land is fertile and needs little or no  irrigation. The climate is mild and enjoyable ; long warm summers with sufficient  rainfall and mild-winters make for excellent crops.  Large and small fruits, garden and field  crops are grown to the best advantage.  This fact was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.

Value of Cow-Ter.ting���������Continued  s  operative creamery, and the cooperative cow-testing associations.  The co-operative cow-testing  associations are revealing some  wonderful facts to the farmers  and dairymen who have become  members. In fact, the results  are so surprising to the owners  of the herds under test that  every cow these men see is looked  upon with suspicion. They immediately begin to calculate on  the cow's ability at the pail and  wonder if her real value is hidden beneath the veil of skin and  flesh; ���������  If anyone doubts the value of  the cow-testing association -he'  needs but have a talk with the  members.    In one of the Iowa  Testing Associations a 75CT-pound  butter cow was discovered. Thi%  record was made on a renter's  farm, where conditions were b\  no means ideal.    The  herd  of  which this, cow is a-' member receives a good ration and is^given  the best possible care under the  conditions.     The  herd  average  during the past year has  been  9,697 pounds of milk and 341.S  pounds of fat. - Accurate records  kept on the feed show that the  needs of the cows were studied  very closely.    The average cost  of feed per cow during the year  was $46.12 and the  net profit  $72.22.  ��������� The herd at the present-time  consists mainly of grade Hol-  steins and a few pure breds. A  pure bred sire has been used for  the past six years and the re:  cords mentioned are the result  of a consistent system of breeding up..    When  this  work  was  started the herd, consisted of  twelve cows of ' promiscuous  breeding. The unprofitable animals were eliminated as soon as  they were apprehended and the  best cows kept for foundation  stock.  In addition to the excellent records made, the herd was gradually increased in number until,  today it consists of more than  forty head of large, strong and  productive grade Holsteins.

The  occasion was in the nature of a  farewell party in recognition of  the   departure   of   Birger  and  Alger Brynildsen for Vancouver,  where they will spend the fall  and winter attendinghigh school.  Guests to the-number of about  fifty gathered as the shades of  evening   began  to   fall.     The  young men  and  maidens were  very soon busy playing games  about the house.    In the soft  light of the moon hidden behind  the mountains and the light of a  few lanterns,' the flitting forms  of the girls in white and the men  in more sombre hues made a very  pleasant spectacle.     The older  members could riot restrain themselves altogether   from   taking  part in the merriment going on,  but joined in heartily whenever  they found the discussion of the  topics of the  day  to languish.  The still air, pleasantly cool, and  the cloudless sky made for perfection as near as that can be  obtained.

Aug. 26.���������The minister of Lands is,in receipt of telegraphic advices covering the fire  situation  during  the last week  throughout the province,   With  the exception  of the Hazelton  and   Prince   Rupert   Districts,  where rain has made the position  comparatively secure, the weather has been  hot and dry, and  very favorable to outbreaks of  fire.    In the Tete Jeune division  all fires have been extinguished  with the exception of one north  of  Berg   Lake,   Mount   Robson  Park, and   intermittent   strong-  winds add to the task of the firefighters.      From  Fort   George,  Nelson and Cranbrook districts,  reports show that all fires have  been extinguished or under control, without serious damage being done.    The  hazard  in  the  Lillooet section is great owing to  occasional   strong,   winds,   and  similar conditions prevail in the  Kamloops district.    Twenty-five  thousand  feet, of   timber were  burnt as a result of   two outbreaks in the Kettle Valley, and  six other fires were  fought in  the Vernon forest district.   Intensely hot and dry weather accompanied by light winds from  the south was responsible for an  exceedingly dangerous situation  in the Vancouver district, where  no 'fewer   than   48   fires were  fought, the area burnt over being  approximately' five   thousand  acres, principally slash.    Much  damage was done to property,  including   destruction   of   two  houses in the Fraser Valley and  and cabins in Burnaby and North  Vancouver.   The fires at Gordon  Pasha Lake  and   Siamond  are  burning fiercely and beyond control, but the" efforts of the fire-  fighting crews have  been successful with   these exceptions,  and   further   damage   averted.  The   western   division   of   the  Island forest district reports no  fires, but there are several fires  around   Parksville,   one serious  outbreak  near   Courtenay,  and  two on  Denman Island,  which  are being fought.     Fires on the  islands   between   Nanaimo and  Ladysmith are under control.  With the drying up of vegeta  tion and the lack of rain, the fire  cheers, indicating the good feel-1 hazard is increasing, and only by  ing prevalent, the guests dis-j dint of the utmost care and pre-  persed for their respective' caution with fire will destruction  homes.
